Perhaps tin' hard-tot trial m those early days was the separation of parents from their children, wheel they were obliged to send tmrk to their Hhwtern hornet for an education. As their mimbers increased, it was determined to maintain a school in the Is awls, and PuiMhou was chosen as the ntte. As early as 1705 this beautiful spot was known to bo the favorite resting phtco of Katnctmaieha the Great, and WHJt other lands was given by hint to lvawetskmeint. a powerful chief, whose MR.

Here Boki and XAHka resided for several years after Uteir return, from England, whither they had nuwHflMRiTetl Kauhameha II and his Queen. In 1SS8. when altout to depart on his fatal Randal-wood expedition, Boki gave Piumbou to the Ilcv. Hiram Bingham, vho nsed often to reimir with his family to thl delightful retreat for seasons of needed feat The site of Mr. Bingham's reeMaticc k still oiii(od out near the jirttsWont's house. Some time lcfore Mr. Bingham returned to America in he generously of' fared the runshou estate as the best location for the future school and the matter of providing a competent teacher and a suitable building was often discussed at the "general meetings" of the mission. At the- session of Mcy. 1S41, an appropriation of two thousand dollars was voted for the buildings, and Rev. Daniel Itole. father of Governor Sanford B. Dole, was appointed principal. Ho was assisted by his wife and Miss Marcia M. Smith. The first board of trustees was composed of the following gentlemen : Messrs. Clamberlain. Dole Emerson and Judd. Tlie acheol was opened In 1841 at tho Ulnpham residence, but the following year more commodious quarters were orrctcd a long, one-story adobe building with a ground Ian shaped like the capital letter 13, enclosing two courts.

Under his administration the sclwool niued the confidence and esteem of the Island community, while his pupils generally took high honors in the first colleges of the United States. As the institution grew it became more national in its character, and in June, 1S4S). it received a charter from the Hawaiian government under the name of School. The rapid development of California. Australia and New Zealand brought the Islands into greater prominence commercially, and in order to keep abreast with the progress in other lines, it was deemed best that the school be placed on a broader and more permanent basis. Accordingly a second charter was obtained from the government. May 23, 1S53, under the title of Oahu College. The Rev. Edward G. Besckwith of Great Barnngton, Massachusetts, who had bee.n very successful as principal oft the Royal School, was called to presute over the new college and his inauguration took place in the old court house on the evening of September 25. 1S54.

Cooke, who after fifteen years of faithful service resigned and was followed by Hon. P. C Jones, the -present incumbent. During the period covered by these gentlemen the financial affairs of the college hare bees so conducted that not onlv has no loss ever been sustained, bat through careful management the funds have yielded a steady income. Much the largest benefactions, however, have been received from the hands of Hon. Charles R, Bishop, whose to the interests of education has heen shown -not alone in the rase of the college but of other Institutions' throughout the Islands. During the many years that Mr. Bisho has" served as trustee he has been not only a generous friend of the college but aIo a wise and prudent adviser in its administration. Pauahi Hall, the Bishop Hall of Science, and liberal additions to the endowment, are witnesses to his mu nificence. But if the college is to keep nace with the rapid development of the Islands a much larger endowment is necessary. Friends and termer students have a live interest in Punahou. and we have faith lo believe tliat its sonsand daughters will, with their accustomed gener osity provide tne means tro broader usefulness. "Oahu College stands." wrote Editor Armstrong in a recent editorial, "as the crowning work here of the Puritan of New England and his successors. It was founded with the same motive and its affairs have been administered by the same type of men. It is a monument to the memory of the Fathers, a oledge of thc faith men have here in Christian civilization and the reign of law."

In the old Binjrfism resideace. a small adobe building which stood a few yards east of the place where the present Dole hall now stands, the school was begun with a small class of children. Although this use wa3 but temporary, yet the little sit ing room of the Rev. Hiram Bingham's home which he had with noble self-sacrifice riven, with the wide acres about it. was in truth the birthplace of Panahou school and Oahu coHege. While this preliminary teaching was thus carried on. workmen, were -easy on the double quadrancle which, with some changes in its details, has until a recent date been so familiarly known as school. This was at first a one-story building with a ground plan Tike the capital letter E. enclosing on three sides two square courts. One-half of the .mid dle win? between tae courts was reserved as a school room, and for ten years it was the school room. Here school was regularlv opened July 11th, 1S42, with about fifteen pupils, varying in aee from even to twelve years. This was Punahou's first permanent .school house. With its adobe walls made of good Punahou soil. Its roof of thatch from the sides of Round Top. and its plastered and whitewashed exterior and interior from the coral limestone and beach sand of the Kewalo reefs it was in a sense "to the manner born." It told a .story of limited resources, of plain liyins. and of the high sense of the. missionary fathers of the valne of educaion: it fold more than this. Hitherto they had fought heathenish customs and had striven to save souls for heaven with both hands, with nerhans .scarce a thought of a new social life for the Hawaiian "community: thev had shipned away their children to the United States at a tender age to remove the heathenish influences and to give themselves more freedom for their work. But now a radical change was taking runce in their attitude otward the missionary enterprise. A part of this change was, undoubtedly, unconscious, and was influenced by various causes the social life already existing in Honolulu, the pair of family separations, the glimmerinc light perchance of the truth that their warfare was not solely a spiritual one: hut be that as it may, this little school house with its adjacent wines- for eatinir. sleeping and social intercourse, was rience oi anew departure. ro more children were to be sent around Cape Horn to heartbreaking experiences of homesickness: the new eeneration was to 'take its fhances henceforward in the new land and become a part of the growing society of the Fslands. to influence it or be influenced by jr. as the case- might be. according to individual achievement in character build iajr. These, ten years U&42-152) of the conduct of the school in the middle winsr were years of jiioneer work. The .institution was poor In material resources.. Economy liad to be "practiced in managing The food supply to a ereat extent came from the school farm, the work of which was largely done by the boys, workinir several hours dailv. Dunne this period Rice, and Dole halls were built, renlacing a portion of the qusdrasgles. .and and south wings were extended. The school was at first a large fatnilv of children. The pupils were of fairly eood material. Thev came from homes where there were plcntv of hooks and where education was valued more than money. According to the standards of the present day thev were poor, but be those f that neriod they were in comfortable circumstances. v From a school for the ehildrenof the missionaries. Punahou had already opened its doors to others, and it soon became national in character. A larger .variety of origin, race and traditions" became visible among the pupils. This development and various ether considerations, prominent among which was the aupnosed promising business outlook of the country, resulting from the dfflcoTery of goldln,California, led the Trustees earlyln the history of the second school hfrtwe to organise the 'school into a college, and thus theintitution received' the new name, Oahu College (1853).

Many of the finest residences of t! eitv n lo cated along these avennes. and with the mountains on one side and the Pacific on the other, the panorama fo always agreeable to the eye. The eilmaw is as near erfection as can be expected upon this earth. It is never too hot. nor cold enough for inconvenience. The thermometer seldom reaches SS degrees or falls Mow UQ degrees. It uSuaiiy rn&gos from 3 decrees to 75 decrees from ?& vemher lo Mav and from 72 degrees to vl degrees from June to October. The northeast trade wind blows more than half the year; with lt cool freshness malaria is impossible. The college liKlldlms are about bO feet above the level of the sea and are supplied with the best sanitary arrangements. The grounds caver o ncres and comprise lawn, groves, gardens, hill and plain: in short, every pleasing varietv. The Hawaiian word Punahou signifies "new spring. awl the water, of exceptional puritv hi conducted bv a system of pipes through all the buildings and over the grounds. During the last few years there hare been planted over 10O coconnut polnw. SO mango trees, and 100 rirros trees, Ham. lemons, China oranges etc. Some 200 royal palms have been set out alouc the walks and carriage ways. The nrhje ef the grounds is a larg hedgo of eereus. nearly one mile in length, upon, which are often seen from daht to ten Ihoutmnd hlotiomt at onoo. Adjoining Punahou snrinr is a pond of half an acre in area, surrounded by palm. bananas and other tropical fo.tnge and filled with red. white and blue water lilies and also splendid specimens of the pink lotus. Punahou provides a boarding depart ttient: but the conception, of thowwho picture the dreary boarding schools of their youth, the like of which exist In too many places toda is wholly wrong. It is a family in which the teachers meet the stndenU & all times, in the most In timate and friendlr manner. In short.
