Years passed, however, ; without anything of importance transpiring in the vicinity of the little school w h e n finally the "Sandwich" Islands were placed under the stars and stripes. Many teachers had come and gone since the little Judge's days oh those days! and now what he considered an up to date teacher had charge of the little flock. This being in the present tense, we will suppose, of course that there is an improve ment in the equipment such as baseball and basket ball outfits. Mary Joties whose name the little judge had carved on all his father's apple trees yes, the same Mary ! is the teacher. The geography class is reciting. "Johnny," says the teacher, "where is Hawaii?" "Its an island." "Well, what can you say about the inhabitants, their habits, language, religion and government." "Please mam, they are cannibals, don't wear any clothes, worship a burning "moun tain, speak Spanish, live in grass ' huts, eat raw fish and paste, and are governed by a king who is the only man who knows anything , among thousands of savages. He lives in a place called Paradise, and learned all he knows right here in Spencer Creek School. His name is Judge Blank." (Wild cheers) "children," said Miss Mary, "please be quiet and I'll tell you a story. Johnny is correct in his ' answers and it strikes me that some day he will become as great a man as the learned judge. Judge Blank and I were in this very school together, just as you girls and boys are today, and it lies j within the power of one or all of j you to follow our footsteps and be- come an ever shining light to the I ignorant. Who knows but I see be-' fore me, this very instant, boys: who may some day feel it their , duty to follow the example of our very learned judge in risking his life among savages i n order to assist in raising these unfortunates from darkness into light."

"The only successful way to carry out the homestead proposi tion, is for the 'big' man to assist the 'little' fellow in getting a start, but unfortunately, the ma jority of the planters are not in j sympathy with the move." So spake Land Commissioner Carter to a reporter in an interview at : the Fairview Hotel last Friday. Mr. Carter made a special trip of inspection to the Kapaa Home-j stead tract, for the purpose of j securing information concerning j conditions as they exist regarding! homesteads receiving supjxrt from a plantation. One of our business men says its no use of looking for investment in oil stock and other things when there is plenty of solid invest ments at home, as we are the rich est country in the world. We have a Diamond Head, a I'earl Harbor, the largest Punchbowl in the world, plenty of Castles, all the Cooks are millionaires and we'll never go hungry for there is always an abundance of Rice.
