Luiz used to stand in the boat, waving Ins arms, and push other boys aside, and cry very loudly : "Chuck 'em out, scnhor ! Ladces, chuck 'em out I Seex-pencc, scnhor !" But I staved at the back looking very miser able always ; and by-any-by 1 could see the ladies and the men on the ship pointing to me, and 1 knew they were saying: "Poor little fellow ! See that boy with the blue eyes and light hair? He's not getting anything 1" Then I would look more .miserable until they threw the six-pences and shillings quite close to me; and sometimes 1 could catch them without moving from the boat. One day, when the Cape boat was in. 1 made a lot of money, and came ashore to spend some of it. 1 went through the Praca de San Pedro first, into the fruit-market, and bought a lot of beautiful fruit for a few reis; then I went for cakes and "turrao" to the Burlington Ar...

Looking down into the crater the sight is nust interesting. The Head is a mere shell, the depres sion is a much more idealistic crater than Punch bowl. It is almost a perfect oval with one or two little capes of curled and twisted lava jutting from the sides of the bowl. There arc two rings, one brown, the other green, where two lake once held the lees of the bowl. In the latter of these a horse is grazing on the scant grass that grows between the algerobas. He looks like a rabbit from the summit, and still panting from the climb one wonders how he got there and bow he's goin...

'.aVi AUSTIN'S HAWAIIAN WEEKLY. 10 i. r- v I L'f II ut. & 1 e '3 3! mV. H Mi '! f iW ft n 1 m l uw hi " The Point of View. Honolulu has one institution to which the may especially point with pride "there are others" of course and that is the Public Li brary. In current literature, par ticularly the magazines and illus trated weeklies, it is doubtful if any town of similar size in the United States, is better equipped. This is due to our cosmopolitan popula tion, to cater to whose tastes it is necessary to present tlfe leading American, Hritish and German standard periodicals. AAA The San Francisco Chronicle is of the opinion that any attempt by the Peace Conference to mitigate the horrors of war, was a mistake; for the reason that the more deadly and terrifying the engines of des truction, the more reluctant will civilized nations be to go to war. From the tenacity with which Great P.ritain clung to her dum dum bullet and the moral support the received in so doing, from the Unit...

Xi AUSTIN'S HAWAIIAN WEEKLY. , Sl 1 Echoes of Religious Thought. BY W. K. AZBILL. Shinto a Hindrance to Progress in Japan. The word Shinto means "the way of the gods." In Japan dei fied ancestors are the gods alluded to in this word. Chief of thee are the Emperors, from Jima Yeno down, (possibly one should say up) to the reigning Mikado, who is un doubtedly the greatest of all Japan's monarch's, if they are to be arrang ed in a scale of enlightened reigns. For, during Mciji, which means en lightened reign, Japan has made more progress than in all the two thousand and five hundred years proceeding. The relation between the present Emperor and the peo ple is more intimate and real than ever before; the sense of loyalty and affection of the people has nev er been surpassed ; yet, there is less of mystery about His majesty, and he appears more in the role of an ordinary mortal than any of his predecessors. However, he is in a sense worshipped by almost all. and by many with a religious ...

Speculation has he gun as to whether the United States, in the long run, will find the game worth the can dle of holding and governing their new Eastern possessions.

AUSTIN'S HAWAIIAN WEEKLY. THE WARDS OF THE NATION." Their Humes unit Their Surroundings, HY l-'ltAXK CODKK.KV. On a little tongue of land, protruding seaward from beneath the towering inaccessible cliffs that form the northerly coast line of the island of Mo lokai, midway between the eastern and western points, on this small, irregular, natural peninsula, in its entirety not containing 6,ooo acres, is sit uated the world-known lazar-housc of the I la waiian archipelago, the dreaded Settlements of Kalawai and of Kalaupapa. Here dwell, on this little peninsula, rock-bound and sea-girt, in guarded seclusion, comfortably cared for in health or sickness, the "Wards of the Nation" of this mid-Pacific paradise. To the general reader there is an undefined feeling of the greatness of the "modern" territory, and it is very easy for those to whom the island of Molokai is a terra incognita, to assume that the entire island, the fifth in size of the group, containing an area of 200,000 acres, is...

He was left severely alone, for he was for the time an out-cast. The assembly was waiting for Eben to make the arrest. At nine o'clock he stumped into the circle. To their surprise he passed Si Long with a nod of greeting and walked to the centre of the group. Every eye was on him.

AUSTIN'S HAWAIIAN WEEKLY THE POINT OF VIEW. Rudyard Kipling, with his won derful gift of going to the root of things, in his poem "Tonilinson," has most forcibly demonstrated the futility of imagining that mere be lief and leading a negative sort of existence, will fit a person for either the abodes of bliss or the reverse. Tonilinson, it will be remembered, was an easy-going club-man, who had loafed through life, thinking of little beyond his own personal con venience. He had done no par ticular harm neither had he put himself out to be of any assistance to his fellow-men. The result being, that after death he was re jected by St. Peter and also by his Satanic Majesty, who both sternly demanded what he had done in life; and to neither of whom he could give a satisfactory reply. As a consequence, Tonilinson was doom ed to return again to earth to learn the lesson of life. The truth con veyed by this parable in verse, has gone home to thousands of people who had never been touched by...
