STUDY fJP , mm What the Child Sees in the Garden. GAINS," FOR SEEING IS BELIEVING" Plants Not All Weeds and Sweet est Flowers Grow Among Vegetables. At the Nature Study meeting Tues day evening Mr. Pope, agricultural in structor at the Normal School, read the following interesting paper on School Gardens: It was something less than a hun dred years ago that the educators of the leading European countries began to see the benefit of school gardens in connection with their common schools. The early growth was slow and steady, while in the last twenty-flve years this branch of their educational system has made rapid progress. It is supposed that Sweden alone has 20,009 school gar dens, France 'about 30,000, with Eng land, Germany and Austria each a pro portional number. In due time- this educational function began to expand throughout 'the. United States, Massachusetts taking the lead, followed closely by New York, New Jersey, Ohio and Wisconsin, with many of the other States taking up the work "We find their agricultural and horticultural societies along with city governments, school boards and private individuals encouraging it by offering prizes for good work, by furnishing lit erature and by making liberal dona tions of plants, seeds and money. The school garden is a laboratory for the students of nature. It is a place set aside where they can study the life history of plants at their convenience, a place to train the hand, the eye and the mind to handle, to see and to com prehend some of the common things about them. Some one says, "Seeing is believing." It is more than that; it is knowing and remembering. The mere reading of statements in some text-book in the sultry school room is of little value compared with the ob servation of those facts that present themselves in the garden. To go out into the garden, work up the soil, plant the seeds and watch the germination and growth to maturity is by far the better way if not the only way to get the pupils interested in the things that grow. We all agree that without in terest good results cannot be obtained. Any kind of a plant is of some interest if it is nothing more than a- weed. But the cultivation of flowers, vegetables and fruit will be more beneficial as their products can be made a source of income worthy of mention as well as specimens of study. School gardens may vary in size from a single flower bed to as much as an acre of land, where many things can r be raised. These gardens can be of several kinds. The teachers of a school may have an inclosed plat or portion for their own private recreation, where they can show their skill in growing, training and . ornamental arrangement. The students' co-operative garden, which is one of the most common sys tems practiced in the United States, s cared for and studied by the entire stu dent body under the direction of the in structors.. It is this form of garden that is generally recommended for the;the fair pavilion more than covering common schools where the pupils are ! of various ages and of unmatched skill. ! in iiiiomer system me garaen is ai- i A'idf d so as to give each pupil a plat; in this way they can grow and study those ' plants that they choose. This system gives a mixed arrangement and a very poor landscape;, but it plainly shows th care or neglect of the various in dividuals. It also affords opportunity for greater enthusiasm and a strife to j produce the best. j Again, the school garden can be di vided into plats each manipulated by small classes or squads of pupils in charge of F.enior students. This sys tem of instruction is perhaps the most practical for normal schools as it will enable the graduates to be in readiness to present to the common schools this method of studying plant life. i We often see gardens containing both flowers and vegetables, but the flower . garden is the most common, and per- ' haps far more beneficial for study, on account of its attractions. - In preparing the garden select a good location, where the . plats will not be shaded by the tops of large trees or the fioil sapped of its vitality by their roots. The soil should be made rich and plowed or spaded up deeply and raked into beds about four feet wide and from twelve to twenty feet in length. These dimensions can be conveniently culti vated. The most natural way to start the plants is by sowing the seeds in the beds, but it is not alwavs practica- ole to do so on account of the coarse Board of Trade relative to the methods soil, extreme heat at midday and the and processes of preserving fruits and difficulty in keeping it moist enough for t vegetables, which report will no doubt the germinating of seeds. j De accessible to you from Mr. Cooper.

A report on the recent Merchants' Fair made by chairman P. R. Helm, signed by P. R. Helm, George W. Smith, J. W. Waldron, W. W. Dimond, J. G. Rothwell and Robert Catton, gave a financial statement showing total receipts of $2645. The total expenditures were $2,417.60, leav ing a cash balance of . $227.40. The report concluded witn the following remarks: "It is with pleasure that your commit tee calls the attention of the asso ciation to the decided returns received in some quarters from the fair. In several lines there were sales made at the entire cost of the display and gen eral trade throughout the city received an impetus, and we believe that the results will warrant the regular estab lishment of an industrial, mercantile and agricultural fair which, if made broad in scope, would be of general value to the Islands, and could be made ( of suflicent attraction to draw visitors ( from the Mainland. j i "It is but fitting in closing this re-' ) port to express on behalf of the asso-' ? tion, our thanks, and appreciation for the work done by the press of the Islands, not alone the newspapers of Honolulu, but those of Hilo and Wai luku as well; to tne gentlemen who acted as judges of award; to the mem-; bers of the Jockey Club, who carried through a successful race meet, and to i the president and members of the base-! ball league, who arranged a special . series of games.'.' j A communication from W.

"Referring to the conversation of yesterday, I have the honor to submit the plan by which I ran the 'Informa tion Bureau.' It was planned to insert in about fifty of the most prominent; dailies throughout the States an ad vertisement worded something in thej following manner: 'Full and reliable information concerning the commercial and other conditions in the Territory! of Hawaii. Positions sought and ac-j commodations arranged. Enclose one dollar for reply.' Enlarging upon this idea, I thought of inserting a similar advertisement in country papers. By this means the farming population would be reached. The vast majority ! of these papers are 'patent sheet' and the expense would be small compared , with that of the dailies, and the num ber of people reached very large. At ' t!"? head of the paragraph a cut of! :..:e hist-, iic or scenic place might be inserted. 'Blocks' could be prepared at a nominal cost and changed from one paper to the other, as often as deemed necessary by the manager of the bu- reau "Special rates could I believe be made with hotels and boarding houses for such persons as might be induced to visit the Islands through the agency."
