interval Itetwccn first and final impieMlont.
Mitt Ciiinming came to Hawaii last among the
1'acific groupt. She w.it already famlllir with
the rich vegetation and the tumliled pinnacles
of the South Sea archipclagoet, and the found

Mark Twain or Mitt Ilird Imt connoisseur
who know the Pacific from end to end will not

"Miss Cumming may certainly claim to know
the Pacific as well at most people who arc not

to go an unnecessary six wicks' vojagc to Sin

the mortification of coasting in full sight of

after lingering eighteen monllit in the fir Cist

began to bethink herself of Hawaii once
more. Hut the return steamers to America do
not call at the Sandwich Islands; and so it
was necessary lo go direct from Yokohama to

from San Tranciscolo Honolulu. This would
firobably hate been too much ocean for any

lest, in a good mail steamer scemt but a com
mon detail of travelling experience. She went
to Hawaii by her roundaliout route, and her
readers arc the gainers by her indomitable re
solution ; for her account of the islands is Ihc
most temperate, judicious, and exhaustive des
cription for pular purposes that has yet been
published. It is equally free from the senti
mental gusli of inexperienced visitors and from
the disappointed depreciation of unsuccessful
"Miss Cumming found Hawaii (and especial
ly Honolulu) nt lirst sight a pate edition of
the South Sea Isles. All that makes the place
delightful, she says, is purely artificial; it is an
ordiniry American town idealized by imported
vegetation, Tahiti is unmixed nature j llono
lulu it the triumph of man over nature, for the
very existence of the lovely trees and flowers
which give it its charm is due to incessant
irrigation. The island of Oahu ot a whole
consists naturally of 'hot, uninviting, red and
vcllow volcanic hills, without any apparent
herbage.' The awful desolation of Ihe barren
coast recalled the shore aliout Aden, only
Aden was 'infinitely more picturesque,' and
Us mountains 'far more shapely.' On the
other hand, the colors of Oahu are wonder
ful; distinct masses of bhek and bright red,
of purple and brown volcanic matter arc
thrown about in wild confusion, while peaks
of dark bisalt rise precipitously from smooth
beds of scarlet lava. Trom this Irarc and
dreary condition the valley of Honolulu bat
been rescued liy the construction of large re
servoirs and the sinking of attcsian vv ells.
Movable fountains, led by indiarubbcr tubing,
play ceaselessly in the corner of every lawn or
garden and keep alive clumps of waving bam
boo or feathery matsct of tamarind and
nlgiroba. This may be Ihc tropics, it is true ;
but il must lie much more like Ihc tropics as
seen at Kcw or Monte Carlo than at seen
among the mountain glens of Cc)lon or Jamai-.
ca. liven in the oasis itself )ou never forget
the volcanic 6rgin of the place, for just abov e
the own towers a conical hill of fiery red
scon-c, enclosing a large crater, called with
Anglo-Saxon irreverence the Punchbowl. O.i
Im is one great cluster of such craters, scarred
with lava streams and volcanic crags, support
ing adry, parched, native vegetation of euphor
bias or other thirsty weeds, and grimly forbid
ding in aspect. Altogether, Miss Cumming
tironounccs it the most untronical-looking is-
ianu sne nas visited; ana lis liarrcn peaks, on
whose undraped nakedness the sun beats fierce
ly, contrast most unfavorably with the misty
verdant paradise of the South Seas. The very
dress of ihe people looks dull after the delicate
pinks and sea-greens so dear to Tahilian girls.
"The men wear European costume, and the
women affect our Knglish browns and drabs,
