courimc oorrd out even from Wasauhi-

within his. ouitatcd breast the thought
or the possibility of being swallowed up
nlivc in the Hades of Darkness. "But
no I" cried he, if lam to pass out of
this universe, of course I must expect to
reach tne limit of the siace illuminated
by the r.i)S of sun and moon. Once
cross this region of darkness, and I
shall soon arrive in some other world.
One effort more, good stork ' one more

standing the words addressctf to it,
shook itself and flipped its wines, and
sped like an arrow, flying and flying and
flying for four montns more at least,
though, to be sure, tt was not possible
to keep tally of the days in a region
where the distinction of day and night
was all unknown. Then it began to
grow light again, and they arrived
within the limits of .mother wo-ld.
Wnsaubiyauvve, feeling himself, as it
were, bom afresh, determined to fly
down and inspect the country at his
leisure. So, perceiving a broad road
runninc throuiih a lame bamboo thick
et, he sat down to rest, and closed bis
eves or a tew moments loroiieri his
uiiln nij.tiii. anu mmeu to ook nomrtTwrTccirmranr
him. What was nothis astonishment to
find, on close inspection, that what lie
Kad at first taken for a bamboo thicket
was nothing but a corn-field, where
every sulk was tltc height of one of our
largest Japanese bamboos ! "A good
wheat country I" said Wasaubiyauwc to
himself, and continued his walk along
the path. But he had only to go a few
furlongs to discover that it was not the
wheat only, but anything and every
thing that was of a sie exceeding the
power alike of eye and mind to com
prehend. The WiOTt syriaciis'xn the
hedge dividing field and field had stems
so thick that one of them was as much
as Wasaubiyauwc could encompass.
As for the pines, rrAwj and chain
ivcyfaris chtusa, they were beyond all
powers of description, while even the
most ordinary little tress would be, some
a hundred and fifty, and some a hun
dred, feet in circumference; and the
dandelions and horsetails'by the road
side were nearly as tall as a native of
it was, indeed, a land where the
mountains, the rivers, and the vegeta
tion exceeded tenfold anything to be
found even in China or India. Wa
saubiyauwc dumfounded, but never the
less walked on for two or three leagues,
till he came to what was apparently a
large town, every house in which was
higher than the balls containing the
great images of Buddha, and had attach
ed to it a godown that looked like a
castle. tfven the most insignificant
hills were higher than Fuzhiyama, the
gutters beneath the eaves of the houses
were deeper than the river Yodo, while
there were dust-heaps the height of Ht
gashiyama, and the ponds that might
have been taken for important lakes,
f.ook where he might, everything was
strange, and even thing exceeded in sue
the power of Wxsaubiyauwe's eyes to
discern and of bis imagination to (Com
prehend. He simply stood aghasQand
the idea struck him that he might him
self htvi shrunk in size But no ! an at
tentive survey of his person showed
him still to be a man of some five foot
four or five, and only left him the more
Ko there he stood ; and after a while
there came out of the houses a crowd
of people, none of them, whether men
or women, less than fifty or sixty feet
high, while some of the tallest men
reached the height of seventy leet,
and even the voung urchins of nine or
ten, with their heads still half thaven,
were .it least twenty or thirty feet,
'I he crowd gathered round Wasaubi
yauwc, and viewed him with wonder
and amaze "What an extraordinarily
tiny creature !" they ricd, as they
(licked him up between their finder and
thujub, and made him htand unpn their
side and then on the other : "Where
do you lome from ? Are you a human
being or are you.melf? What ha brought
you here ?''
To which Wasaubiyauwe, stretching
lus legs wide apart as lie stood in the
hand of one of them, and bawling out
at the top of his voice, made, mswer

This dwelling waa evidently neither
that of a merchant nor of 4 peasant, btil
wore rather the aspeU of a retreat in
habited by a scholar retired from pub
lic life. Judged by the standard of the
i minify, it was small. The owner en
tered tne tour and and a half mat room,
about the sire of a metropolitan temple
of the Monto sect, where, over a desk
some thirty ik feet eighteen, he spread
n piece of drugget ; and then, plnr ing
Wasatibivatiwe upon it, took up a gram
of riie about the sie of a Japanese
musk melon, with a pair of rhopMu ks
about m thick at a palanquin Irenrer'
pole, and Megan feeding him. Watwii
biyauwe, finding this pellet thrust in
front of his nose, nibbled at it, feeling
the while as if he had been turned into
a young sparrow ; and it was thm that
he took hi food, morning and evening,
during the whole period of hi residence
in the country.
Attracted by the report of the extra
ordinary creature caught by Doctor
Kifwauchi, crowds of people, Iwlh men
and women, young and old, kept win
ing in daily from the ncighlxirhood to
obtain n sight of it. They would try
milking the little thing stand in the
palm or their nanu or on their head,
ami would discuss its various pcrAtlinr
itios. "Certainly," they would say, "it
is wonderfnllytame. What ? it requires
no made-up food, no hemp-socd ?
Why ? it's easier to feed than a quail !"
Wasaubiyauwcdidiiot relish being made
a toy in this manner. Hut it was use
less to be angry and there was no good
to bo expected from resistance in
dealing ' with such giants as the
people were. And so the days and
months slipped by.
Meanwhile, Wasaubiyauwc was busy
olisotving the characteristics of the land
and of its inhabitants. He could see
thai everything was ten times bigger
than in China or India ; that the sea
sons were regular and propitious, the
harvests abundant, the people prosper
ous ; tint, in short, it was a perfect
land, endowed with every advantage.
But, at the same time, he noticed that
this nation had no philosophy, no moral
code, no system of government ;
they were not only ignorant of the reli
gious teaching of Confucianism, Bud
dhism anil Shintau, but had not so
much as words for ideas of benevo
lence, righteousness, propriety, and
wisdom, and, in short.'that they were
a nation without knowledge and with
out learning. The men simply worked
in their fields and girdens and manu-
factured various implements, while the
women busied themselves by weaving
and spinning. Beyond that, there wa
nothing , and when, from time to time,
iect of conversation, no personal dis

cussions, no differences or contentions,
but tney simply talked aliout things in
general. So Wasaubiyauwc fell n-fliink-
lng to himseir, as he turned the matter
over in bismind "It would seem as if
this foolish country were superior tothe
rest in nothing but size, tenanted, as it
is, by such empty headed folks. It is
nothing more than a great overgrown
asparagus of a country. Diminutive
as I am, why should I not, with my
knowledge of the doctrines of the sages,
aspire to the glory of becoming a
guide to this nation, nnd of instituting
and conducting a 'beneficent form of
government, as did Koku-sei-ya in
Formosa Y' Filled with this idea, he
one day, when a great crowd had assem
bled, strode up to his table and ad
dressed them all in a loud voice as fol
"Though born in Japan, I have, to-
say nothing of visits to China and In
dia, spent thelastthousandycars intravel
ling through the whole of the Three
Thousand Worlds, and have' made my
self acquainted with the features, both
physical and moral, of every one of
them. Now, from my observations of
this country, I gather that, while it ex-
ceeds all others in the dimensions of
everything it contains, you, its inhabi
tants, know nothing of the moral and
religious duties of mankind. What an
inglorious and lamentable distinction
is this ! In the world from which I
come, there is nothing but is comprised
within the limits of the path of duty.
Take China, Iler three primordial
sovereif.is and five ancient emperors
op-jned out the path, towards which it
was successively the endeavor of such
men as I,ao Tsze, Confucius, Chwang
Tsze, and Mcneius to lead all mankind.
In India, the blessed Shiyaka Muni
preached the doctrines of retribution,
heaven, and hell ; and tn my own na
tive Japan we have their grandeurs
Izanagi and Ixanamt, the great Goddess
Amaterasu, and all the other gods and
goddesses, who hav e condescended to
teach us us all simplicity. From our
obedience to such teaching spring the
peace our land enjoys, and the prosper
ity and cheerful labor of the people ;
nor has man any profit in being born
imo the world a a human being, if he
remain ignorant of benevolence, right
cotuncss, iropriety, npd wisdom. From
this day forward, I will commence ex
plaining to each and all of you the doc
trines of philosophy anil religion."
And explain them he did, from his
eminence on the table, beginning with
the model governments of Giyait and
Shiyuu, Bun nnd Bu, and the Duke of
Shiyu, thence (ussitig to the philosopht
cal systems of Confucius ami I-ao 'I se,
und including with an exposition of the
doctrines of Buddhism, standing on lip
toe and shouting the while, as was but
miessary when addressing such giants
as were bis audience. Moreover with
all t'uc vast treasures of exponent e
which he had gathered during the
thousandyvars ot his peregrinations, his
unequalled ncquaint.inie with all know
ledge ancient and modern, Wasaubiy
auwc felt no shame or hesitation in
holding forth before so uncultivated an
audience, hut, on the contrary, kept
daily pouring forth such masses of
Hoids and of arguments as should have
drawn an assenting nod even from a
stone image. But, for all this there
was not a single individual amongt the
ciowd who seemed to be m the Jea$t
persuaded. On the contrary, far from
.. iM JteAsJWf r
coftdeneemjmg to argue with him, they
wttrtd talk of him as people do of a
pet bird, smiling and snying to eath
other ; "What a quevr little creature it

and is more amusing than a parrot,
fciylnglrtg Mich a lot of aenlencea with

for the niwte of six or seven day, ex
pound to them the blessed doetrine of
UWrtiK h and of HnUrtna. He might
a well have tried driving a nail into
bran or applying the moxn to a - piece
of earth ; and, driven to despair, t mild
only exclaim that their stupidity was a
gigantic a their Htnture.
One day he said to Dr, Kuwait hi
"flreai traveller a 1 have been, 1 have

and natural advantage. Yet nowherr

small nnd contemptible, but looks hack

Nowhere else does there exist a nation

To this tirade the Doctcr made no
answer save a slight Ihv of the head.
But as Wanaubiyaiiwe kept repeating
his question over and over again, he
smiled gently, and, stroking Waxnubi
yauwe'e head, replied :
"It is not generally discreet or wise
to tell little creatures likuyoti the whole

"Well , for the greater to comprehend

"Wherefore, Heaven has caused a
kind of busybodies named sages to be
born, who should lead the bewildered
race on to better things But each of
these busybodies has his own special
proclivities. The method of I.ao'IVe

point which Shiyaka thoroughly took in.
was the existence in mankind of deep-
seatou evil passions; and he brought
people into the true path by layinc hold
of their imaginations with all manner
of tales, delightful and ternlic. In fact.
what these men, one and all, did, was to

" Do you now, Wasaubiyauwc, under
stand the mental conditions of the l.and
of the Giants? But if so, do you and
your countrymen, with your tiny frames
mid your minute knowledge, just suffi
cient to let you see in front of your
noses, avoid pride, mischief and Jwli-di

him on the hack.

'1 he harbor or Kabila, (landing for
Kilauea) where we embarked on the
steamer James Makce, is about one
and a half miles from the mill. It is a
rough landing as a general thing and
sometimes really dangerous for all ex'
ccpt the expert kanaka swimmers. It
is here that the superiority of the
natives as boatmen, and sometimes as
swimmers, is evident. They ride the
most prodigious sea with their boats,
gayly, and enjoy the " run " which the
surf gives them toward the beach, yell
ing hilariously. The boat stecrcr or
captiin of the boat's crew is an expert
and as quick as lightning. He stands
up on the thwarts of the boat, even if
she is on her beam ends, and directs
her course with the utmost coolnessand
grace. vviien the boat reaches the
mnlr 1 mv Crtr in n .A.J A -j 'A .
making fast, is a marvel. As swimmers
the kanakas are very expert, and they
nrc not in the least danger if th,e boat
turns over and throws them in the surf.
They will swim under water for a con
siderable period nnd thus avoid the
"breaking" of the water. At the land
ings of Niihau, when it is too rough for
the boats to approach the shore, a
native will be dispatched to swim with
an interchange of messages. To the
stranger this appears a perilous undcr-taking-jrswimming
a great distance in a
heavy surf with a good prospect of be
ing dashed on the rocks. When the
man has been out of sight for, two
minutes the stranger, in his heart, gives
him up for lost; but he has only gone
down to smoother water and pretty
soon "bobs up serenely," presently to
be seen scampering up the beach, the
first visitor to the island in a month,
