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.

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.
