NEW 8CHOOL PAPER.
Pupils of Kaahumanu school, llore
tunla.Ktreut, were yesterday evening
celling a llttlo paper called Malle Ill-
ma, which has Just been started with
Its printing done at the school. In
both contents and style of printing, the
little sheet Is very creditable to a com
mon school, comparing faornl!y with
the prints Issued by high' schools and
even academies here and elsewhere.
Officers of the MuUeJIUna are an
nounced ns followst'. Janies Tllalsdcll,
manager: Mrs. 8. O. Ileapy, secretary;
.Mrs. Isabella Crelghton, treasurer;
I.ucy McOuIrc and Arthur Fnrla, re
porters; Harry Wagoner. I.nnl Magoon
and Calllc Luras, collectors: MaryAy
lett, editor; Catherln Sllva and Henry
Aylett, assistant editors.
The naming of the paper Is thus c.
plained: The colors of the Kaahumanu school
are red, like the "crlmsoii-dj-ed" Ichiift,
and green, like the sweet perfumed
tnalle.' It was the Idea of the pupils In
the sixth, seventh, and eighth grades
to combine the names of these two Ha
waiian do acts to make a name for tho
Severn! other names were proposed,
among them "The Kaahumnnii Press,"
"(llobe," "World," "Inter-Ocean" and
"Advertiser," but when the matter was
put to u ote, the school stood solid
for .Malle l.chua.

Hearing the rumor that there as to

ladles up tovwi yesterday afternoon nnd
the llulli tin Society Reporter being
abxxut nt a 'high tea" on College. Hilts.
the Sporting F.dltor was Induced to
leprescnt this paper ut tho meeting by
hinting that the intention was to start
a "Indies' football team. 'I Ills was glv
ru hint ns a reason for not knowing
the locality of the meeting sa)lng
that they probably would not want
newspaper men around nt thflr first
gathering If the) conld help It. Then
he uns flattered upon his keenness In
getting In on "sporting events" and
told to track the llrst bevy of happy
looking ladles he saw nnd he would
be Hire to "hit It" alt right, and font

they went Into Imbibe soda, und then
watching them admire some new hats
In a store window, they finally made a
break for the "drill shed" only shying
9nES.at a. passing Rapid 'J'r.'n'jlt car.
" He followed' them into the sh'fd; posl-
live now that there was some "sport
ing evc.nt"' In -Ihe air, and he found
rlmself In the presence of n brilliant
assemblage of ladles n lovely hats and
liiindsomrly gowned. '
The meeting was already In progress,
so he quietly took a seat near the door
Where three or four other men were ul-
ready located, and gave his attention
tn the matter then under discussion.
The seemed to have gotten clown to
Hint pen Hon of the program relating to
refreshments, hut ho found this sub
ject so Interesting that he forgot all
about the "sporting" part and with
watering mouth wax soon noting down
the proceedings with more than fnltb
fill ut curacy.
It was 'necessary to amend his re
port somewhat mid leave out the re
aiarks uliont how Mrs. cuius
grucefjilly up tu th escrutch; how Mrs.
won the toss for post; how ninny
seats there were to be in the grand

With the best of intention, they nro

Alone nnd the preliminaries of tho bill
of fare and attendant remarks or sug.

editor's notes, aro about as follows:

thn guests would clamor for more.
Chicken pies were next In order of

the fnl" housekeepers who make then)

famed Individually for tho manipula

are to Insure that they will not only bo
viry tempting, hut that they will bo
"well bred enough to "roll" around
tbo tongue In melting mood to thu gen
tie ncionipanlmenf of good sweet butter.
And as to th eroast sucking pig, the
ladles who will superintend the cook
ing of tlii.e In their homo ranges do
not want their names mentioned un
til "after the falr"rbecausc they are so
well known as adepts In the art that
they fear there would not bo enough
pig to go around.
Then there was talk of sundry dalntj
and tAsty condiments as an accompani
ment to the mor solid dishes and hot
(Offee nnd tea aa might bo desired.
Then It was told how this event was
to happen 'on the 30th Inst., that there,
would be four Icing tables In the laiml
each' table cared for nnd waited upon
by a comlnlttce of eight ladles; thai
each of thn tables would have dlstlnc
ttvn color decoration', nnd the ladle
'would wear the colprs gf their tables;
thai the seating rapacity. would be tor
bout two hundred, that 'none might
go away hungry or dissatlsllcd.
Finally there wbh a stir aa though
rlu meeting was about to dissolve and
pur representative asked a man next
to him, how' about the game, the
Hports, the event or whatever 11 might i
he and the man put nn a surprised '
look and said there wasn t any spoit.
"Well! what lire you hero for?" h
"Wh," said tlit man, "I ciiiiih In

Udles talk alHiut'all those splendid
things to cat, and how they made
them and how- good they tasted and to
have my mouth water."
"Well, I Just sat hero nivself," said
the reporter, "and closed my ejes and
listened and It's the best meal I've had
ince last Christmas."
So the "sporting man" sauntered
awn. In thoughtful mood, convinced
that though this win a "festive caucus"
nnd rather out of! his line, yet It was
most rnJonblc and, sport or no sport
he would band III hlsjiotes nnd the
