3 GAY CHILDHOOD'S DAYS. Special Exercises at Kindergar ten Schools Yesterday. 1'leasaut Tribute lu Mr. Colrtnuii- Mn- Heart of Many tlm Hre Happy. The various kindergartens in the city had special exercise! yesterday morning. One of the feature of kin dergarten training is making much of times and heasous. anniversaries, birthdays and national holidays. The children were lu their het clothes and on their best behavior yesterday morning. The various school rooms had some special decoratioD?, suitable for the season. The children enjoyed the various performances, though they have hardly been suillciently long under training to make ail their motions with the precision and grace which 1.4 one of the aims of the svs- tem. Iiut they did most thoroughly eDjoy the hour. The teachers say it is a great trial for the little ones to be kept away from scuool for any reason. Ten minutes after ! a, m. was the time assigned to the Portuguese and Chi nese echools. In the Portuguese school, under Miss Fires, the distinct ive feature was the representation of the different phases of a butterfly's life. In the Chinese school, of which Mias Mildred Kinney has charge. Home very tine specimens of modeling in clay showed what artistic power lies latent in the Chinese mind and fingers. At Queen Emma hall, 10:11 a. m., the wee Hawaiians, whom Mrs. JLarbell teaches, and the Japan ese tots, under Miss Osaka's guidance, were as cunning as any Brownies that are such a fad just now in pictures and Jewels. The abandon with which the little ones danced and sang would bring fresh life into any superanuated bachelor heart or what passes for such. The children of the Foreign school were most numerous, but not so lively as such little chicks might be. Pe'rbaps the tropic languor has taken out some of the Anglo-Saxon virility, though every European na tion, almost, contributed Its quota to the Free Kindergarten school, which Miss Plastman manages in addition to the kindergartners whom she has In trainingin the afternoons. Theclosing visit was made to Miss Smith's school, on Beretania street, where the chil dren of some of our own Honolulu families, of long residence, are enjoy ing the privileges of being trained un der an expert kindergartner. In all the schools there were gifts ready to be taken home, the work of the chil dren's own hands. As was natural under the circumstances these gifts prepared by Miss Craik's children were of choicest design and tasteful workmanship. A pleasant feature of the morning was a happy thought of Mr. F. Y. Damon's in taking a representative child from each of the kindergartens, each having a boquet of flowers, which they presented to Mrs. II. "W. Cole man at her home. She Is the finan cial secretary of the kindergarten com mittee and has been most diligent and successful In getting the money to meet the large expenses of so many schools and teachers. Mrs. Hyde, as president of the AVoman's Board, un der which these kindergartens have been organize!, went with Mr. Damon and the children, whose gifts were a sweet surprise to this kind-hearted and open-handed benefactress. THE KAU DISTRICT. Kllaue "t Very ActU-Ief til nl Irulufttrlal ote. Kau, Dec. 10. This district is hav ing Its share of miserable weather. It lias been blowing steadity for over two weeks and the indications are that it will keep up for some time. The fire has disappeared from the crater, leaving a large deep hole, with little smoke. The question is, where is the fire now? It must be running some place, and will soon find an outlet. K. V. Fuller, manager of the Ha waiian Agricultural Company, has resigned, and leaves for San Francisco with his family on the next Australia. He has been connected with the plan tation for over fourteen years, and consequently he leaves a great many friends here. Mrs. Gallagher, wife of the head overseer of Pabala, died this morning and will be buried tomorrow, the LX)th inst. It is reported that all persons work ing on the Government road, who have not taken the oath to the Re public, will have a chance to do so; otherwise they will lose their places. On the up trip the W. G. Hall was unable to land passengers or mail at Punaluu. They were landed at Ho nuapo. W. II. Hoogs, who has been rusti cating here for about a week, has left forHilo. "Billy" was looking fine. He had a "Brownie" with him. He says the "Brownies' are all the fash ion now. New Year's Day promises to be very interesting, if weather permits. There will be several horse races and other sports. ..... At the present rate it will be a long time before the road from Hilea to Pa bala is completed. Only one bullock cart is used, where there should be at least three. It is now over four years since this road was commenced and it is time it should be finished. YVork has now been stopped on the Peter Lee road for over a month. Resi dents are disappointed, as they were in hopes they could drive to the vol cano with ease in a short time. Trades That lilg Check. The head of the firm of John D. Spreckels & Bros, denies positively the statement published in a morning paper that the check for $1,500,000 drawn by Claus Spreckels went to pay for the Chiuo beet sugar plant near Anaheim. Mr. Oxnard, who owns a heavy in terest in Chino, makes the same de nial, and add that the only paragraph of truth in the published story lies in the fact lhat Kichard Gird has sold his railroad to C. H. Philips. This road is a narrow-gauge, extending up the valley ten miles from Chino, and the SpreckeU family have no interest whatever in the transaction. Ex aminer. The liusaian Government ha3 decided to adopt petroleum a3 fuel for two battleships now being con structed, one at the Baltic Sea Works, and a at the IficoUieST. i 2&i At LUlle May Ucntley Born a Genius Disease Threatens to Cut 8hort a Noblo Career But Hood's Sarsaparllla Restores Good Hoalth.
