Sewing Chemistry Remark Thruout the rural portions of Hawaii there is a real and large need for library facilities more general than those existing at the present time. As in rural regions the world over, books are scarce. The people in the country should have accessible and reliable in formation concerning the . things of their daily environment. The 1 raveling Libraries have been established to partially meet this need of the rural committees of Hawaii. The college of Ha waii, in cooperation with the De partment of Public Instruction, conducts these libraries o n the four islands Oahu, Hawaii. Maui, and Kauai. A circuit may later be established on Molokoi. Each library consists of about twenty-five books, dealing mainly with agricultural and related sub jects. The books are modern, simple, lion technical, and author itative. The college provides the books and the boxes for their trans portation, and oversees the for warding of the libraries from school to school. The Department of Public Instruction pays trans portation charges, and is respon sible, thru its principals, for the books while they are in the schools. There is no expense of any kind, so far as the school or principal is concerned, connected with the use of these libraries. They are sent in good faith to the schools on the circuits, on the principal's guarantee that the library will be properly cared for and promptly forwarded. , The library will remain at each chool on a circnit for a period of one calendar month, at the expira tion of which time the principal will pack and forward the library to the school next on the circuit. There are but few duplicates in the libraries, so that each library may make a circuit of all the is lands. Additional libraries will be interpolated as the demaud justi fies. The libraries will be sent only to those schools whose principals signify a desire to receive them, and agree to their safe-keeping. Any school principal desiring a library should write to the College of Hawaii upon the accompanying form. The libraries are for the use of the teachers, the older pupils, and the people of the community. The principal may make any reasonable arrangements regarding the loan ing of the books in his care, mak ing sure, of course, that the books are duly returned. The books are best circulated . among the persons interested by loaning them for definite, short, ieriods only. The College of Hawaii is desir- ious that these Traveling Libraries II BAGS ARE DELAYED When the Hall arrived last Fri day, instead ol following the usual course which is, that the mailcomes off ahead of any freight, the reverse was the case, which resulted in an inconvenience to our local post office officials in so much as the mail had to be sorted from the is land mail which leaves at 6 a. m. and the force was compelled to work like thirty rpntQ tn dpi tlm mail distributed and sorted within the time limit. The natrnns nf the local office were also disappoint ed in the delay of their mail, having heretofore leen accustomed to just a bit more promptness- upon the part of the steamshin offirinla. There might have been some very Hood reason for the delay, but un it one is given, the question Why?) is in order. Sunday Service, Waimea Sunday Services will be resumed at Waimea Foreign Church Octo ber 13th. The church building has been renovated without and within during the summer months. It has been made attractive and comfor table by the generosity and good will of all who have been want to worship in it. Every one is wel come to all the Services, and the Minister is always glad to call up nn and serve all who at any time may desire his services.
