In the various phases of tho
temperance reform of the present
time, there is none more impoitant
then the effort to introduce the
study of physiology and hygiene,
with special reference to alcoholics
and narcotics into the public schools
of those countries in which tho sys
tem of public school education has
been established. And the move
ment has met with wonderful suc
cess. Within less than four years,
fourteen of the States of the Union
together with the Provinces of lite
Dominion of Canada have placed in
their school laws new clauses mak
ing this kind of instruction obliga
tory on all schools supported by
public funds. These authoritative
endorsements of the precept, "train
up a child in the way he should go,"
one of the ways in which he should
go being the way of total abstinence
from all intoxicating beverages has
been brought about largely through
the exertions of tho Woman's Christ
ian Temperance Union. The princi
pal worker in carrying on the agita
tion in the United Stales was Mrs.
Hunt of Massachusetts. A series of
text books was prepared under her
supervision, of which the following
named were adopted at a recent
meeting of the AV. C. T. U. in Phila
delphia: Hygienic Physiology for
high schools by Joel Dorman Steel,
Ph. D. ; Hygiene for Young People,
for intermediate schools, prepared
under the direction of the scientific
department of the AV. C. T. U., and
endorsed by A. 13. Palmer. M. D.,
L.L. D. ; and the Child's Health
Primer, for Primary classes. In the
Canadian Provinces, Richardson's
Manual and Lee's Text Book have
been adopted, and their introduction
is due to a long course of agitation
persistently and strenuously main
tained by the Sons of Temperance,
Templars, and Total Abstinence
societies of various names, and lat
terly by the Dominion Temperance
Alliance and the AV. C. T. U. All
these books arc finely illustrated
and carefully prepared, and theie is
no doubt that a careful examination
will convince anyone of their in
trinsic value. AVith respect to the
use of these books, it may be added
that neither Mrs. Hunt nor the AV.
C. T. U. have any pecuniary interest
in their circulation. This is one of
the new questions that will piobably
come up in the Teachers' convention,
next week, although not on the
official programme. The question is
one of far-reaching importance, as
everything is that concerns the
moral and physical status of the
people who, in the future, arc to bo
entrusted with the destinies of this

Sir William Uobiuson, Governor
of South Australia, has been charged
in the Legislature with "scandalous
intiusion of vice-regal inllucnce into
current politics," simply becauso hi
a jocular way, dining an after-dinner
speech, lie had favored the pas
sage of the federation bill. Kvl

Km roil Hi'i.i.iriN : In your issuu
of hist evening, 1 was much inter
ested to learn' of the inei eased How
of water in the Honolulu system of
artesian wells. From an experience
of three years at Mokuleia in ATaia
lua, I do not think the wells have
diminished in the flow of water, for
in every subsequent lice crop, a
larger acreage is planted, with the
same number of wells, which is in
pait due to the better tamping of
the beds of the patches. One 7g
inch well in a good locality supplies
the water for thirty acres.
As I was tho first pet son, in this
district, to commence boring for
water and against the advice of
many friends, I feci that I am most
interested in the proper economy of
a very valuable water supply, and
immediately on feeling sure that my
wells were a success, l ordered lrom
New York the most improved globe
valves for regulating the How, and
which cost on landing some 8750.
Each flowing well is capped, and
during the interval between crops
the water is shut off, though I will
admit it takes much of my time to
follow up the tenants in this respect.
The flowing of a portion of the
water into the sea cannot be pre
vented on account of the sandy
nature of the bed of the patches,
for should the water be shut off,
when the patch nearest the sea was
full, in a very short time after the
water would' have supped away in
the upper patches, leaving them
hard and dry. The continuous flow
of water through ail the patches is
a great benefit to growing crops
and prevents stagnation.
One thing more, to show you that
am alive on the economy of water,
and 1 will close. Can you furnish
me with information that will guide
me as to the best place of pumping
the water, that (lows into the sea to
a higher level than the level of our
watci head, which is twenty-two
feel, differing fiom the Honolulu by
eighteen feet six inches. I have
made many inquiries and thus far
unsuccessfully. To make it profit
able the cost of raising the water
must be limited, to supplying the
same above this level at $12 per
acre. GAsrr.it Svi.va.
