The annual examination of the
Krwaiahao Female Seminary took
place yesterday afternoon in Kawaiahao
Church, the exercises commencing at
1:30 p. m. The large building was
filled with an interested, audience,
amongst" whom weip H. R H. Princess
Likclike, and H. R. H. Princess
KaiUlani, the 'Ministers of the" Crown,
Nobles, and members of the Legis
lative Assembly,1 and many other
friends and supporters of Hawaiiah
education. The large pulpit platform
had ,bf en cleared for the occasion, and
the scholars numbering at present
ninety-three girls, from tiny ones of
four years of age to young ladies ot
"sweet sixteen, were grouped upon tne
platform, during the singing pf the
opening chorus "The Lord is King,"
and very pretty and neat they looked
in tneir pretty wntte aresses. irjc
Rev. S. E. Bishop delivered a prayer
which was followed by a1 song "He
Careth for you," the voices being led by
Miss Quin Sing who presided at the
organ duringtlie exercises.
There was then a concert recitation
of Bible verses, the scholars showing
that they had been carefully trained in
memorizing tne woras ot tne uooa
Book. The following exercises consisting
of class JBible recitations and
singing were very creditable. The
arithmetic class was very bright and
quick, the exercises embracing doing
of sums in addition, substraction, and
multiplication brought out the fine
training of the pupils, and won de
served applause. A duet and chorus
"God speed the right." was sweetly
sung; while the music lesson and song
by Miss Alexander's class was
a great success. Under the
method of instruction - followed
the class showed that they
were entirely familiar with written
music, reading and sounding the notes
written on thef blackboard wU,'wlt hesitation,'

A very interesting lesson in Hawaiian
geography was recited by Class
"A." One and all, of the scholars
showed themselves familiar with the
geography of their native country and
the audience evinced their appreciation
of the care taken by the teachers
in this branch of study. After other
songs and class recitations a lesson in
Physiology was gone through with, the
pupils naming the different parts of the
human body and the.tunrtions ot yan
ous organs promptly and correctly.
They also described the effects of alcohol
and tobacco upnn the system ( a
graphic and, no doubt, truthful manner.
A Chorus, "Bringing in the
Sheaves" was. then sung, after which
the "little ones" in the school gave
recitations and Kindergarten tongs.
Rev, Dr. Hyde, as one of the trustees
of the semlnaty then thanked the
audience for the interest they had
evinced during the exercises, and

arrangements made for the health and
comfort of the scholars. He was quite
sure that if any persons on earth deserved
to be called saints and martyrs
they were those who had the care of
such schools as this. Miss Alexander,
the Principal, and Miss Malone, Assistant
Principal, now found themselves
obliged to take a sea voyage for the
benefit of their health which had become
impaired by their close attention
to their duties.
His Excellency Mr. Gibson, President
of the Board of Education spoke briefly
of the interest he had always taken in
this admirable school, which was

The audience then adjourned to the
grounds about the church and witnessed
a calisthenic exercise performed
by, about forty of the girl pupils,

linen trimmed with red. To the sound
of a drum beaten by one of their
number, the corps of young girls went
throuoh a number of graceful evolu

pupils afterwards visited the Seminary
