supervision of Mr. A. L. Smith,
took place yesterday. Tlio schools
and tho audience filled tho largo
meeting hall at tho base of tho

cronse in the number of schools re
presented, owing to causes whicli
were explained, tho exorcises wero
fully up to tlio usual standard of ex
cellence. Holokahann, Macmac, and
Pnuoa arc deserving of special men
tion. The first named 'is composed
of very small children, who per
foimcd their part in a way that
would have been no discredit to
children of older growth. A marked
feature of Macmac School wore the
calisthcnio exercises, which enmc
near to perfection. Tlio Pauoa boys

school. There wore also several
excellent recitations by young child
ren. The pastor, Mr. Cruzan,

estimated by his characteristics in

childhood and youth they were most
likely to be when they grcwnip. Ho
emphasized tho propositions that
J&us was obedient, of good habits,
not afraid of work, tender as a
woman and strong as the strongest
man, brave, true and manly. After

been at forty or more morning
church services during tho year, of
whom there were no less than fifty
nine. "Willie Baldwin attended

FIRE ON HANA PLANTATION.
Yesterday forenoon at about 10
a. si., during tiro blowing of a
southerly gale of wind, fire broke
out under the floor of an empty
trash house. Tlio engineer's whistlo
and the fire boll called in ashort timo
tho people to tho spot of danger. It'
exceedingly gratifying to see tho ex
hibition of good will and alacrity with
which everybody worked to master
the fire. A few minutes, delay would
have caused very serious losses ; it
seemed as if everybody felt tho
danger; women, botli native and
Portuguese, camo quickly m to tho
spot with buckets ; the men lost no
timo in filling the buckets and bring
ing them to tho fire. Engineer Tcr
kelsen and overseer Smith did ex
cellent service with such tools as
they could lay hold on.
My thanks are duo to many
friends for their kindness shown on
liana Plantation, Maui, Dec. 20.
The existence of another great
lnko hns lntcly been revealed in
Cnnnda. Quebec advices say that
Lake Mistnssini is undoubtedly larger
than Lako Superior, but its dimen
sions aro not even known to the
Hudson Bay ngents nnd Indians.
Tho only thing certainly known
about it is that is the expansion of
Rupert's river, just ns our great
AVcstcrn lakes are expansions of the
St. Lawrence. Tlio Hudson Bay
Company havo had an agency there
.upward of 100 years, but kept it
secret that a lnko qf such dimensions
existed. The trade is carried on at
the post of the Hudson Bay Company
by giving the Indians provisions and
outfits in exchange for skins and
furs. The Indians are friendly, and
scarcely know what liquor is. Many
havo accepted Christian teachings.
