The next belnp, the last week of the
contest the votes will be counted
and the result announced daily.
The contest has aroused a great
deal of enthusiasm among the school
children all of whom naturally wish
to give their favorite teacher a pleas
ant vacation trip and the youngsters
have been working like beavers get
ting their friends to cut out coupons
and to subscribe for the Bulletin.
That they experienced very little
difficulty in the latter effort is shown
by the way subscriptions have been
Vburing in for the last tw.o i.wnths.
There will no doubt be some sur
days for a great many votes are be
ing held back for the finish.
It is certainly a pleasing way for the
children to show their affection and
regard for their teachers by thus
working for tli-m, and a trip to San
Francisco and return will surely
be 00 more than deserved by the
teacher whom the greatest number
of votes shows to be in truth the
most popular. The fact that the
Australia is the vessel which will
carry the fortunate teacher is in it
self an added attraction. The Aus
tralia is our ferry boat between Ho
nolulu and 'Frisco and is as regular
as clockwork. The eating is de
clared by everyone who has traveled
on her to be most excellent and
a more genial and accomodating set
of officers would be hard to find.
Votes in tliis contest will be given
to new subscribers only as follows
according to the term of their sub
cription: I MONTH 40 votes
