A certain class qf persons may whet their
Intellectual appetites, if they will, by scientific
Inquiry into the boundless realms of specula
tion, as they scorn what they term worn-out
symbol-., and leave the beef, the turkeys and the
plum puddings,tie mistletoe, theChristmas tree,
and Santa Clauslo the Intellectual childhood
of the uncultured masses. What cares the
great struggling world ,jvt Christmas time,
what went before the Pliocene era, or how and
how long man was being evolved from the ape,
when they take up that story of the wondrous
birth In the stable, of the death on the cross
and the resurrection from the tomb, which can
make life a rapture of triumph and create a
daily1 hope and quiet inhuman hearts assaulted
by sin anil wounded by sorrow. Here arc
depths ol thought and feeling which logic can
not touch. The trre glittering in the homes
of rich and poor, the Christmasxarol sounding
from the church's open door, the Christmas
greetings which know no barrier of sea or pge
or class, the atmosphere of kindly cheer and
brotherly love, have come from childish associa
tion to mean eternal truths to us. They touch
depths In our nature which the facts, the studies
and the experiences bf mature age can not
reach, telling of hope for a puttied and piur.1
inf. world, and prophesying future good to lives
that are yet to play their parts ere the curtain
falls on the great drama of the life of man.
The miracle of the first Christmas Is repeated
from jctr to ) car. It brings to the brutality,';'
norance and gterd of the nineteenth cenlurylhe
same messageof help lo all people that was told to
the Judean shepherds keeping watch over their
flocks by night. Men are worshipping false
(rods of money, influence and appetite, and
trying to decide right by might and truth
by expediency, -now; as when Christ was
born anil t'ontius 1'itatc was Roman governor
in Judea. Docs it argue no hope for the world
that millions of faces, hearts and thoughts feel
the glow of the wondrous star which leads
them to Bethlehem? "Is it for naught that every
star act in the blue vault tells of regions of
measureless calm, of a power, a personal love,
and right, alive here in the turmoil of work-da)
life, and at work in us, and, through it all,
strong to comtiel justice and brotherly love;
tome day to prevail, to bring order and peace
out of this inextricable riddle of a world?"
Dear Christmas time, we welcome thee I
Thou art more than a season for solemn tnerr)
making, exchange of courtesies, children's frol
ics, and cheer of meat and wine! We would
contemplate thee in thine own magnificent pro
portions of spiritual dignity and practical rell
gious power, in thine august place, in the heaven'
given charter of the welfare of our race!
Although Honolulu is largely American in

During the evening the following poem,
by a written friend, was read by Mr J, M.
Could we turn backward th great lide of yean,
I reaVIng so long on the green short! of lim-,
lllJu the bright billows that ebb and that rlow,
A e should hear echoei of sweet wadding chime a
Echoei that tremble with memories dear,-
Tones overflo Ing with tender,! truth,
tlarmimes hinting of heaven belaw,
Tailing t story of love and of youth.
Rung the first peal of those soft wedding belts
Orer the snow, through the clear frosty air ;
I alhertand (it away, hotdine; them dear
Home of aloptljn, this iumrar land fair,
Gladly to-day the sweet echo repeats,
Sailing each crjstalited cadence, to words
All happy hearts for them,elrcs ea- supply,
Tuning the strain to the free notes of birds
Oreetmatof lore and sincerest regard,
Dungs erery guest and acquaintance to-day,
llonoi'ed, to press I and unite so long,
Happy, thus tributes c.f friendship to pay.
Fifty lonfr. years of life's sunshine and storm
Shared sMlh true faithfulness, crown you as peers;
Mutual the Iru-t, so the eares lighter grew,
Steeter the joys and more tender the tears.
Sacred the retrospect, precious the task
Haifa long century thus to renew,
What were once trials, brief sha lows appear,
Scenes of young years seem as yesterday new.
Hardships and crosses and well earned success,
Mingled together in God's perfect plan,
Lie at your feel a mosaic complete,
Wrought for eternity, during life's span.
Quiet and busy your lives, but your hands,
r- ver emplo) ed in serving mankind,
Help at all times wtths)mpathy true,
Welcome ami cheer at jour board, all might And
Over the ocean, afloat on all seas,
Spread the white wingssou have fashioned foryaars,
Emblems of purity, blessing and flight,
Long may your bannara encircle the sphere.
Kindred aax send sou greetings to day
Children and grand children joyful unlit,
Golden the wishes that fall at your feet,
Golden the aurset ere Cometh the night,
Golden the jearf that we pray are to com
Iaden with peac your last dajs tn adorn.
Golden Gods promises, strong in their faith,
Gulden will dawn resurrection's glad mom.
The guests kept coming and going until
half past ten ; and the occasion made one of
the pleasantest reunions that has taken phce
n Honolulu lor many a long day.
Last Saturday evening was the occasion of
a lionse warming at the handsome new rcsi
tlenceofMr.'nnil Mrs. Fernandci.on King street
HisMijcsty, with Chambcrtin Jutld ami the
stall, were present, and the occasion u also
graced by the presence of Queen Kapiolaniand
her ladies. The home into vthich the happy
hac just moved Is large, commodious and
beautiful; and from an artistic point of view,
both Internally and externally, may justly be
considered one of the chief architectural orna
ments nf our city. Mr. and Mrs. Fernandez's
two children, a beautiful loy and girl, were
both christened, the simple but imprcssisc
ceremony being performed by Uc. J. A. Cnr
ran, after which the guests sat down to a most
magnificent luau. The table " fairly groaned"
with t;ood things which loadad it down. Two
zones were laid under contribution to " furnish
forth" the festive board. The sea had given
up its delicacies in honor of the occasion, and
the good things of the forest had been levied
upon. " There ere shrimps and crabs hmu
and cuttle fi-.li from the ocean; amaama, cooked
asonl) the Hawaiian knous how to cook them.
The foi had teached just that stage which
commends itself to the palate of the most com
plete counoisseur; the sour luau was prepared
to a nicetj-apprcciablc only by a true lama
aina, while in addition to the delicacies of the
Hawaiian part of the menu, the last triumphs
of another civilization and another clime, salad
and cake, nuts and raisins, lent bounty to an
already overflowing board. The toast the
health of the hot and hostess, gracefully pro
posed by royal lips, was drunk with equal
enthusiasm, while from the balconies without,
the music of Hawaiian meles chanted to the
accompaniment of the guitar, and sung by rich
masculine voices, rose to the stars. The Press
sincerely hope that the kind host and hostess,
Mr. and Mrs. Fernandez, may be attended
with all the blessings of long life and happiness
in their new home.
Little Rica Kail! lieckley, youngest child of
Mrs. E. M. Ucckley, was four years old last
Monday ; and numerous merry little friends,
relatives and neighbors, assembled at her mam
ma's house in Kalihi to celebrate the occasion.
A jolly little luau was spread on the dining
room floor. Rnas. pig and baked mullet and
taro tops and poi and sweet potatoes and
range and apples and cake. The little ones
wore lei of made and orange colored chamo
mile flowers and had such a jolly good time as
only kindly nurtured childhood knows. May
pretty little Rica live to celebrate many birth
days as happy as her last one.
The society editor of the Press, Mr. 11. N.
Castle, bad the misfortune to be thrown from
his hnrsc last Wednesday afternoon. The ani
mal bolted before Mr. Castle was fairly in the
saddle. The result was a backward disloca
tion of the right elbow. The arm swelled
terribly and became exceedingly painful. The
dislocation was replaced b) Dr. J. S. McGrew;
and the sufferer is now comparativ ely easy.
He has of course been the recipient of many
testimonials of solicitude from fair friends
and has lived in a bower of votive fragrance
tver since the accident. Much of society
walk in to-da)'s Press is unavoidably the
merely perfunctory cfToit ol tyro society
sharps, unworthy to loose th latchet of Mr,
Cattle' dancing pumps.

The regular monthly meetinc of the Y. M.
C. A. was held in the library room of the Y,
M. C. A. building last Thursday ccning,
Mr. Yarndlcy's singing class was discoursing
melody in the room aliove, which may have
hid something to do with the enthusiasm of
those in the room below. The meeting was
inspiriting at least in one of its leaturcs.
I'resMmt Jones spoke rather discouragingly
concerning the committee work of the year,
which called Mr. Davies to his feel. The
latter gentleman then gave an exceedingly in
teresting account of what he saw of Y. M. C. A.
work during a recent short stay in Han Fran
cisco. He happened to be there during the
session of the Y. M. C. A. convention of the
state. Me said he had been encouraged, nay,
inspired, by the w ords and acts of the Christ-
young men of California. He had not before
realized what Y. M. C. A. work, in its full
ncss, really was. And he hoped that our as
sociation would be ablcto send a delegate to the
next convention to be held in San Francisco.
President Jones said that there was a chance
that General Secretary McCoy, of San Fran
cisco, would visit the islands next Tebruar) ;
and, if he came, much good was to be hoped
from the visit.
Treasurer Kinney reported a satisfactory fi

We taVe pteavnre tn Informlne you of
trie pood work done by your Hand Grenades at our
factory In Alameda, yesterday A lire latiaht upon
in suingic mo, 01 a large rrame structure, ana rurnea
furiously, and for a lime endangered our entire svorks
The fire was burning oser about one hundred feet of
surface when the ahrm was Riven, and the men all
being on the first floor, setred the Grenades and had lo
go up three fights of stairs to the top of the bitilting,
Inch is sistj- feet high, and there was difficulty in
gaming access to the fire on account of the steepness
of the roof and the absence of cleats, wh ch occasioned
considerable delay When the men reached the fire
they Instantly extingtnsSed It b the use of ymtr Hand
Grenades, although the shingles were atlTa, ued. We
believe your GrentdM saved the building from total
destruction. Ilease send us an a Idltlonalsuppty Im
