"The school 'will remain as the home of the present students, numbering about 60. but they wiil be transferred to the public schools for their academic work," Har-grave says, "and the boarding department of the school will be enlarged. We want to assist all the people we can la every phase of the school work and extend our aid as far as possible. 'Students'at the school will have every opportunity to study shop work, and those from country districts coming here to board will be able to work out part of their expenses In our shop."

As conditions In the islands have changed, the school has always been In the lead for the betterment of these conditions. From time to time it has been necessary to add new departments to the school so that our students might go out better equipped to meet life's battles, and In the same manner departments have been dropped. "There was a time when the youth of Hawaii received their education through private schools only, but as time went on the public schools grew and Improved until now this is no longer true. Out public schools are very efficient and are taking care of present educational needs. "Believing that we can be of better service to a greater number of boys, the trustees of the Hilo boarding school make this announcement of changes in its plan and broadening of Its scope, to take effect September 1.

Our boys come early every morning and water their gardens and sell vegetables. We save all the grass cut from the schoolyard when we mow the lawn and dig it into the soil. We also use it as a mulch between our vegetables to keep the moisture form drying out so rapidly. We have several beds of multiplying onions that will soon be ready for market. Our tomato vines are full of young tomatoes that will soon be ready for market. We have some head cabbage, but the trade winds bring over so much salt spray that they do not grow well. Before we replant we dig into the soil about 15 inches and mix in manure and rotted grass and leaves. Our soil was formerly very hard and lumpy. Now it is soft and fertile. The aphis, or plant lice, have been troubling us some, but we spray with "Black Leaf Forty" to get rid of them. We have had very little rain this month. SHINICHI MATSUDA. Grade 8.
