Bridgewater, Editor K. C. Hopper, Manager The business of Lihue's official dog catcher, is said to be a howling success. To say "he's 'nuts' on polo," Does't mean a man is lolo. You muy talk about your I'mrs And the privet they will bring Your Cotton, and Tolutmi, too, But OKI SiiKur Cane is King. If its "butter fat" that the Pure Food Commissioners in Honolulu are after, why the dickens don't they have ice-cream made from but ter milk. What with all the "new ideas' which have been and are still being captured by the different heads of our school department, we can look forward to something startling in our school system in the near future. Educational Bee Now doth the little busy bee, Improve eaeh phininir minute. It's ttung the "Hoard'' with a "new lilt. ' ' Now the rest of t ain't in it. The letter by "citizen" in this issue is of more than passing in terest to our readers, many of whom are personally acquainted with Mr Sheldon who is given credit as the originator of what seems to be a vast improvement on the prevailing methods. If the different plantations were to offer a premium to every lad who attained a certain knowledge of cane growing by the time he com pleted his school course, there would be much less alarm felt at the passage of the Dillingham Bill or any other bill which deals with the labor situation. A Missouri exchange says: "A car load of beer broke down at Cor der a few days ago and one thousand per sons volunteered to accoiiiimiiv the wreck. ing crew which wan called out to repair me uamage. n was iree beer to all. What a sad sight it must have been to see such a throng volunteer ing to visit their own (bier) beer " Worcester Musi, in an anti-fly crusade uati capiurea ten oarrels lull.

Offer a prize for the largest number of mosquitoes captured and see how earnestly the matter will be taken up. School Inspector'McClusky has joined the "new idea" cluh having sailed for the coast last week. Mr. Horner of the Kukaiau School, will hold down the lid un til Mr. McClusky returns. With Gibson and McClusky both absent from the Territory, the Hilo school matter will probably get a rest, and the little Japanese student who failed to pass, will have an op portunity to bombard Mr. Pope, for a change. The Kalihiwai wharf proposition is in the same class with the Ha napepe School affair. The Hono lulu officials have a way of neglect ing island affairs which is not very likely to be appreciated by those who do not happen to le among the "favored few." The Hanalci wharf, too, at which a big bluff was recently made, is as far aloiur as it was a year ago. What we want is "Action" and less "hotj air," and if we do not get it, there1 is just enough curiousity iu us, to! find out why. : The College of Hawaii when es tablished, was considered all that was necessary to create efficient agriculturists in sufficient numbers to supply our needs. A list of such "efficient" men from this college would be interesting. The exami nation entrance t o this colles, Ibastd on a state school stand-rdj is one which prevents many of our bright country lads from getting a show which they have every right to demand. How many of our pa rents are able, financially, to'send their boys t o the High School? Again, by the time a boy who has been reared among rural surround ings spends two years or more in High School, he is weaned away from his former environments and adopts a desire for "city life," with the result that he seeks clerical em ployment. Lower the standard of entrance, if necessary, and give our boys a chance to show the stuff thats in them instead of supporting a col lege which may be- and very like- is doing excellent work in its line, but that line is certainly not along lines conducive to the best interests of our young rurahtes. A Communication Editor Garden Island, Dear Sir: Being an old kamaina I am naturally interested in the progress of our islands. The sugar industry has progress ed wonderfully during the last thirty or forty years, both in the manufacture of sugar and the culti vation of cane. The improvement in the machinery for the boiling- house has great advantages over that of thirty or more years ago. Equally the same with agricultural implements. I saw a mould-board plow at the Lihue Plantation, built by Mr. H. Sheldon, the plantation blachsmith, which took my eye. It is the best tool of the kind I ever saw, though it was just completed and had not yet been tried, I would go my all on it. It should make the finest kind of a furrow for cane planting. The mould-boards are curved so they will slide through the soil. Another feature of it is, it has no wheel in the front of the beam like the old style plow. Sheldon has a rod attached to the standard, run ning under the beam, and about 4 in. from the end of the beam is an adjustable rod with hand nuts. It is attached to this pulling rod which pulls directly from the standard. By this adjusting rod the plow is adjusted to plow deep or shallow as the case may require.- The great dif ficulty in plowing has been, to be able to adjust the plow properly, un less an experienced man is em ployed to assist in adjusting the plow. The devioe Sheldon has, is a simple one. I have been told the said mould-board or furrow plow, is doing just as I said it wouid, (splendid work) runs easy, and makes a perfect furrow. Thanking you for the space i n your up-to-date little paper, I am Very truly yours. "Citizen." Los Angeles Papers Must Be Good The Los Angeles Grand Jury has lopped off a chunk of good advice to the newspapers of that city in its call for peace among them. War has existed between the papers for years and the interment of the bat tle ax, would be a wholesome treat to their readers.

Dock Hands Strike Tying Up Vessels The dock hands in London have gone on a strike, which has assum ed such proportions as to tie up one hundred and fifty vessels. Shipping is suffering greatly, and it is feared in many quarters that a sympathetic strike among general trades organi zations will follow unless an early settlement of the prevailing condi tions is made.
