that tho contestants woro piled up
in a neap soiucwtioro along the

simply jogging loisuroly along

was no raco until Thomas squaro
was roached on tho return trip,
whon King mado a, spurt and took
tho load by ICO yards, but ho
could not maintain it and at Ka

Angus had beon rosorving his

from the Progressive Educator:
Thoro seems to bo 0 nourishing
colony ot normal departments in
Honolulu just now. Thoro is one
nt Kamehnmeha School for Boys,
one at Knmohamoha School for
Girls, oue at Oalin Collego, and
ono at the now High School. And
it is hardly safe to bay that thoro
are no others. Thev "are spring-
' inK "P "ilh bewildering rapidity
All this shows the trend of educa
tional thought ami activity.
There is hope ic the Hawaiian
race in the training of Hawaiian
teachers. TLe most hopeful fea
ture in negro education in Atno
rica is tho part taken in the work
by such negroes as Brookor T.
Washington. If our friends of
tho Kainehamoha schools, who
aro devoting thomselves exclusive
ly to training Hawaiians, can do
velop one such leador thoy will
moro than justify all thoexpoudi
t n 103 ever mudo for those institu
tions. Reports from all quarters indi
cate a considerable incicase iu tho
attoudauco at tho govornmont
schools. At last accounts tho at
tendance at Ilolualoa had reach
ed almost a hundred. Last year
this was a ono-room school. Tho
attendance now indicates that it
was an orror to provido for only
two toachors in tho building re
cently orootod thore.
The coming legislature will
have a larger school attondanco to

this will cull for lirgor oxpoudi

Constitution that no public mon
ey shall bo oxpeudod on bchools
