The kindness and hospitality of tia
tive Hawaiian was very pleasingly
demonstrated on Christmas Kve at the
little Palama Chnrcfc, back at the lie
form School, where the boys"of Kame
hameba had placed a Christmas tree,
and where they rendered a moat en
joyable programme all for the pleas
ure and benefit of the poor children.
About fifty boy9 and girls with their
parents and friends, together with the
Kamehameba students, gathered long
before 6 o'clock, the appointed hour,
and filled all the seats, so that many
who came later were obliged to stand.
From the center, of the room .that
constitutes the whole chqrch hung a
lantern. Under ylt -was the - candle
lighted Christmas tree, laden with
bags of candy, dolls and other articles
designed to gladden the hearts of those
children who were there to celebrate
for the first .time in .their Jives .the.
birth of Christ." Back of the tree was
tha pulpit. draped with white bunting,
upon which were the words "Merry
Christmas" worked in ferns.
After a stirring piece by the Kame
hameba band, Mr. i'abee, on behalf of
the teachers and boys of Kameha
meha, made an address of welcome in
native, saying in part: "Dear child
ren, we wejconieiyop ibere tonight.
We extend to yoUj our i good wishes
and our greatest gpd will. J We boys
are children with you, and we have
come to celebrate and enjoy with you
this happy event this Christmas eve.
I have oge,-thlngmoxe,to eay, and
that Is, welcome againA1
An octette from Kamehameba ren
dered "Joy to the World," delighting
the listeners, after which Mr. William
Makakoa told the story of the firat
Christmas in a style that pleased and
charmed the children. He finished in
a sweftt and simple manner with the
words: "If you catch the meaning of
Christmas you cannot but rejoice.
We are here to rejoice, and we are go
ing to see that your hearts are filled
with rejoicing along with ours."
Several other talks were given, all
of which contained good wholesome
thought and sound advice.
Perhaps the feature of the pro-
- gramma. waa.the .eiagins by .a chpw J
of twenty-nve girls ana ooys, mem
bers of the Palama Church Sunday
School. No school in Hawaii could
produce any better singers. Their
voices blended in the most charming
manner, and the tounds, produced
were sweet and sympathetic.
The band played a rain, and then
the Kamehameba boys proceeded to
'unload'! the tree, giving, each little
child a bag of candy, or a doll, or
some other little artieie oi remem
brance. .I. .' '

caught fire, and Santa's identity was

children went home loaded down mth
presents, a greater part of which had
.been furnished through the liberality
of MravFuJU. After the1 distribution
