AGAIN WE MOURN.
Again Hawaii is called upon to
mourn the death of a high chiefess,
the Queen Dowager Kapiolani.
She was no less beloved than her
beautiful niece, for whose untimely
death the tears are hardly dry. If

The class-day exercises were held
in the open air and consisted of
the recital of many interesting
