village of Ikifre, Worcester County,ln the state
of Massachusetts, December 4,1809 .Her

Abigail was the 9th cf 11 children, six of
whom were boys.
When she was still a little girl, the family,
owing lo business reverses, rcmrtd to llran

childhood, girlhood nnd )oung-lad)bood of
the future missionary was for Ihe most patt
To the personal training of her father Miss
Tenny doubtless owed a large share of her
proficiency as n teacher. ,
At about eighteen, while teaching Ihe vill

In William's College, lie was even then fil

having tell the plow for the college 011 his
conversion, when about twenty-one. They
became engaged soon after, and, better to fit
herself to second the future labors of her hus
bind, Mis Tcnny entcted Ihe newly organ
lird young ladles seminary at Ipswich, Kssea
County, Massachussets. This Institution was
founded In 1S1S by Miss Lyon nnd Miss Grant,
who afterwards founded Ml. Hot) ok.- Scmin
ary. Under these ladies Ipswich Seminary-
soon became justly celebrated for its successful
schooling of teachers, and the future educator
of so many Haw iians of such varied parent
ace was a pupil ol Ipswich in the heyday of
its usefulness. How well she Improved her
opportunities was shown by her rapid promo
tion to ihe important trust of pupil-teacher.
The aflcr-frult of those studious hours is part
of the educational history of Honolulu of
the Hawaiian nation.
Miss Tenney b:came the wife of R. cv
Lowell Smith, October 2, iSj:.
On the 23rd of Novtmber following they
sailed from New London, Connecticut, on
board the old nhaling bark Mentor, Captain
John Klcc, in company with Kev. John IJelll,
first seaman' chapliin and first pastor of the
llcthcl, and Mrs. Drill, Her. and Mrs. II. W.
Parker, parents of Rev. Henry II. Parker,
and Mr. Charles llurnham, a carpenter and
builder, who came to erect the llethel Church,
the ftame work of which was on board the
The voyage was a memorable one, occupy
ing 159 days, during which they saw- no land ;
though, being driven by stress of weather far
south of Cape Horn, they passed alarmingly
near many icebergs.
They landed May 1, iSrj. The ladiea of
the party were met t the shore by the queenV
carriage a hand cart, drawn by two natives,
clad in dignity and malos.
The first station of Mr. and Mrs. Smith was
it Molokai, then well populated. Their only
white colleagues on the island were Rev. and
Mrs. K. H. Hitchcock. Their first house
was a (mall native hut. But after endur
ing its discomfort a few months Mr. Smith,
assisted by his parishioners all natives,
built a comfortable cottage of stone collected
from an abandoned heiau, the natitcs furnish
ing a thatched roof.
A biography of the devoted Christian
woman whose life has been thus far outlined
cannot be separated from the life of her equally
devoted husband. It is not often given to
man anil wife no matter how congenial and
mutually helpful so effectually to supplement
each other in a noble life wotk. And though
in the first years of their island life the hus
band's energy was conspicuous and the wife's
ill-health confined her influence to silent and
often unnoticed channels, yet it is self-eviJrnt
to those who have known them Ixrvt that
neither could have led lives of such blessed
usefulness during the changes and vicissitudes
of half a century, If each life had not gisen
strength and purpose to the other.
On Molokai Mrs. Smith's health broke
down, and it was many years before she was
restored to the good, and comptratively
vigorous health she has enjoyed for the past
thirty years. Her condition while on Molo
kai became so alarming, when they had lived
there alwut a year, that she was brought In
Honolulu, her husband's station being
changed to Ewa shortly after, where they re
mained about two years. At Ka, Mr. Sm'tih
began thc-ftion of the Ewa church, com
pleted during the pastorate of Hcv. Artcmus
Bishop. Hut the Lwa climate proved In
sufficient to restore Mrs. Smith lo health and
they icturned again to Honolulu in order that
she might have continuous medical treatment,
and that Mr. Smith might engage in teaching
Ihe hundreds of children and )oulh who had
After leaching there alwut a year, Mr, Smith

of the church wrat mooted, and It became
necessary lo provide wars and meant for the
purchase of flooring, doors, windowi, lime for
plastering and a few other essentlt's, Mrs.
Smith lieRin to teach the native! to weave
mat, hat, and bags. The man and halt were
told to wealthier natives and to whalers, the
bags were purchased by the two or three sugir
cultivators then at work on the islands.
The chntch was built rf adobe. Mr. Smith
made molds for the adobe bricks which were
1 feet long, t foot wide and 6 Inches thick.
Lach abl: bodied adult mile psrislnonier was
espected to provide 40 bricks. So soon as
one finished his tale, he passed on Ihe moulds
to another. During 1SJ7-S the structure went
up. and when finished In tSj3 was 125 feet
long, Co feet wide, with walls 12 feet high. It
was one-story, with a very high roof. Its
acoustic propsrtics were admirable. Its "seat
ing" capicily was nearly 2,503, though the
" seating" was done on the floor. Sometimes
the congregation numlieied fully 3,ox.
About iSp, Mr. Smith built a little home
of two rooms on the site of his ptescnt home
in Nuumu Valley. He built it merely as a
retreat from the summer heat of town, but soon
made It a permanent home. There, in Novcm
b:r 1S52, Ajittut L., their yoangsst sun, was
born. Of the seven children born to them
after their arrival in the islands only two sur
vived, l'totn that year, Mrs. Smith's health
In tSjj two Hawaiian )oung men, em
ployed as cooks In town, came to the house
and asked if Mrs. Smith's little daughter
Hnina (now- Mrs, II, I. Dillingham,) would
leach them to rend, write and speak
English. Mrs. Smith replied that her
daughter was loo young for the position
of teacher, but that she would uladlv
teach them herself. At that time there was
no school In Honolulu at which the common
people could learn I'.nglish. The old Royal
School had been established for chiefs only.
On the premises now occupied by the present
Royal School there was an Lngtish school for
white children, Mrs, Smith's two pupils told
uthers and her little class grew in few sinnlhs
until it became a well-established and well
known evening school for Hawaiian young
men. To limit and define the membership
Mrs. Smith Used tuition rates 25 cents per
week anil 30 pupils testified th: genuineness
of their desire lo learn L'nglish by keeping up
their studies with her for fully a year.
Among her pupils at that time were many
young men who afterwards filled useful
positions creditably and faithfully. Hut the
tfloil ol leaching five nights a week almost
continuously was too severe for Mrs. Smith's
delicate constitution, and she reluctantly aban
doncu her evening school, immediately to
begin a day school for Hawaiian children to
which, ftom time to time, there came also
English, Chinese, Negroes and South-Sea
Islanders, fn 1S5G this school was made a
government school Ihe first English-teaching
common school on the islands. During the
years 1854-60 many of the most promising
native boys on tin: islands attended Mrs,
Smith's school its membership at one time
numbering So pupils. Minister Kapcna,
Captain William Tell, W. A. Klha, Enoch
Kalawao, David Naone were a few of those
prominent Hawaiians who are remembered as
being her pupils.
In 1S60, it w;s decided to open a govern
.dent school for Hawaiiar.s in the present
Royal School premises, and Mrs. Smith was
invited to become principal. She declined to
accept the position, and, the exigencies of the
situation seeming to demand it, the govern
ment,, school she. bad so successfully conducted
was transferred to the Koyal scftool.
Hut Mrs. Smith's educational work did not
cease there. She opened a school for white
children and taught it at home for three years,
coming down the valley in 1S03 to the cottage
now occupied by Mr. J. D. Strong, then
owned by a native. In that school (as occa
sionally during many years before) Mr:, Smith
was nss.stcd by her daughter.
In 1S65, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, paid their
first visit home after an absence of nearly 32
years. They were accompanied by their son
and daughter and were absent from the islands
On their return Mrs. Smith reopened their
school at her own home, continuing it until
the close of 1879.
In 1S36 or ,7 Alexander Liloliho was for a
while a pupil, and Regent Kinau wanted Mr.
and Mrs Smith to adopt the little luir. Dut
reasons of state counselled otherwise and the
future Kamchameea IV was educated in the
old Royal School by Mr. and Mrs. A.S.Cooke.
Mrs, Smith's powers as a teacher were in
part o " gift." Uyinheritance and by training
she was fitted as only a chosen few have been
for the particular environment of her teacher's
life. The following autobiographical para
graph, written with rare felicity and admirable
good taste for a memorial prepared on the
occasion of their golden wedding, two years
ago last October, indicate better than can any
words of the writer the zeal, the faith, the
Isvi she put into her life work :
"Lose of children is the strongest passion of
my nature ; and teaching is my normal con
dition. We were not pioneers in the mission
ary work at these islands ; but we entered into
Ihe labors ol" the good men and women who
had preceded us, and who had already made a
successful commencement, and good progress
in the work. There was a dearth of teachers
for the children, and it was a glad day to me,
when I gathered my first group of Hawaiian)
boys and girls about me, and met the little
dusky faces raised to mine, as wide awake and
eager as were the children in Ihe far away
home land. Here was promise, and faith and
hope seemed triumphant."
Mrs. Lowell Smith's influence as a teacher
was not more noteworthy than her Influence
as a Christian worker. She was qctlvc in
many directions, helpful whenever and
wherever her strength permitted her to act.
Her religious fellowship was with Kaumaka
pili Church, of which she became a member in
IS38 and in which she ictained her member-
s'lip ever after. Kor many ) ears she worked
in its Sunday-school, together with her two

Then came Mrs. Hampsoi, and into the workj

real far beyond her strength.
Three weeks ago last Tuesday Mrs. Smith
attended a meeting of the Hawaiian Woman's
Hoard of Missions. Her friends noted with
ansiety her failing strength. Two da) 's later
she attended the organizing meeting of the
Woman's Temperance Union. It was her last
outing save one. On the following Sunday,
she was driven around the grounds of Luna
lilo Home. A gospel meeting was in progress
at the time. Mrs. Smith heard the sound of
a hymn, and slid i "I shall be glad when I
am strong again. I must come here nnd talk
with these old people." It was almost her
last expression of a wish or, a resolve. Her
words were the words of one faithful unto
death lo the duty she had made her life work
her duty to the poor of the Hawaiian race.
The last fortnight of her life was a gradual
slipping away. The lust week was a pro
prolonged sleep. Her final days were abso
lutely painless. She was not delirious and not
unconscious. Her condition, was natural,
painless sleep. She awoke several times,
spoke occasionally, made slight motions with
her hands, followed ivith her earnest eyes the
movements of the dear ones around her. She
did not want to die. She clung to life for the
good there she still might do. Dut there was
not an Instant's rebellion, not one visible pang,
as thj knowledge of the inevitable came lo her
by imperceptible gradations of consciousness,
till she closed her eyes at last to open them
in the land of her promise.
It was hard to give her up. Three genera
tions of a family that had been closely
united mourned more than a common
loss. And yet they knew God "had given
His beloved sleep" and Cod's beloved was
It was a fitting ending the funeral from
Kaumakapili Church, the church of her long
allegiance. By hall-past three Sunday after
noon Ihe church was filled by those who had
known the dead missionary. The population
was about equally divided between whites and
natives. The choir of Kaumakapili Church
sat on the left, the Ewa side. oT the pulpit ;
several members of the choirs of the Ucthcland
Fort-street churches sat on the opposite side. In
the pulpit were Rev. Waiamau, pastor of Kau
makapili Church, and Revs. Hyde, Cruian,
Oggel and Forbes. A wealth of floral tributes
testified to the appreciation ol unnumbered
friends. White roses Mrs. Smith's lavoritc
flowers were profusely used, in crosses,
wreaths, an anchor, a harp, a floral pillow and
in looc masses. On the pulpit desk was a
tiny sheaf made from full ear of ripe wheat,
and in il was thrust a miniature sickle.
The choir from the English-speaking
churches sang two hymns, the native choir
sang one. Mr. Cruran offered a prayer in
English ; Mr. Waiamau, in Hawaiian. Mr.
Hyde read a port.on of scripture in both Eng
lish and Hawaiian. Mr.Forbcs prcaclicd in Ha

Many went to the cemetery, though only a
very few in comparison with those who were at
the church. A beautiful feature of the last sad
rite was the lavish use of flowers at the grate.

those of her grandchildren weie decked with
flowers. A little pile of rocks, taken

it would be superfluous for me lo-dwtll tcitlio

whom she came In coniact. It was a life con-
Uedeemer'j Kingdom in these Islands. A
whole generation has pissed away and nearly
another, and she had been permitted the joy of
seeing this nation coming out of the darkness
and degiadation of heathenism, and rising
steadily Into the light and the privileges of
Christian civilization. Hut today I look
around upon this great audience and ask where
are those who were among the early fruits of
her labors? Where are Ihe old chiefs, where
the good old women, where the good old men
who informer years received instruction and
Christian light and help under her teachings,
and were co-workers with her in all thil was
good ? Alat, how few remain I Gone all

them once more and rejoice with them in the

Hut two short years ago, she was permitted
the rare privilege Of celebrating her golden
wedding, amid the congratulation of children

Her life work was well finished. She
dropped In the harness. Hut two shr"t weeks
ago, she visited the Lunalilo Home, and her
life-long love for the Hawaiian people, and in
terest in their welfare was greatly roused, as
she said, "Ah here is my remaining work, to
lo good to these aged and feeble ones" i and
her soul rejoiced In prospect of that work. A
lay or two after, she attended a meeting of
the "Women' Boird of Missions for the Pa
cific," of which she was president. Then it
was that for the first time her physical powers
failed her, nnd that was her last official ser
vice Two days later, she attended a meet

before the close. This was her last public ap
pearance. A few days more of quiet, appar

and she slept sweetly in Jesus. She was not,

ihe aged fathers and mothers who have led
this Hawaiian nation through the tottering
steps of its infancy up to its present position

national bereavement in their departure. An
orphaned people may well mourn the loss as
they itep through the open door in answer to
the Master's call, and enter the mansions
waiting for them, leaving to us the priceless
legacy of their example, and the testimony of
their lives to the power of the Gospel of Jesus

MR. OCOCL'S SP.RMON.
My friends: The words of Scripture which
the minister of God has read in our hearing
and the hymn to which we have listened direct
us lo look upward and onward to the Heavenly
Home. The Bible calls it our Father's house.
The door of it was opened and the voice ol
God said, "Conies" and yesterday morning
the spirit or the beloved wife and mother
passed from these earthly surroundings to the
home above. Through the open door she
went in to behold the Father's House and to
rejoice forever in its beauty.
The apostle John, when an exile on Patmos,
in the revelation that he had of the blessed
hereafter, beheld the number of the inhabi
tants! ten thousand limes ten thousand ; an in
numerable company of the redeemed, of

know that the Hible presents the future life in

there Is no sickness, no night, no partings, no
pain. There Is the land where God lives and

to be there 1
Tfiat I may not lie misunderstood In speak
ing thus of Heaven, let me say, that In so do
ing I do not speak disparagingly of earth or
of this life, For this world is God's creation,
as much as heaven is his workmanship. It Is
the sphere of our work nnd of nur noblest
efforts for God and humanity. The eye and
heart nnd lore of God are over this world too
With such a Father and helper we are not
orphans. And I would say to the weary nnd
heavy-laden, that no knee ever bowed to this
God, that was not strengthened that no
human heart ever opened Itself to this Ileing,
that was not filled nnd enlarged with the in
fluences of His love; that never did a stricken,
bleeding heart approach this Gat with its
wounds nnd sorrows, that He did not meet it
on lis way with healing arid comfort. I only
argue for a better, brighter, more enduring ex
istence. There must be a nobler, higher state
than this material life. True, some, forgetful
of their heaven-born origin and destiny, are
satisfied with these material surroundings and
grow accustomed to this world as docs the
prisoner to his cell. Hut a voice within us
asserts the fact of our dcathlcssness and on the
heart's nllar burns the inextinguishable flame
Here wc are exiles from Paradise. Wc
form purposes over which the angels of God
rejoice, but wc fail in the endeavor. Wc have
a spirit that is conscious of its immortalltt,
but is enchained in this prison-house of the
body until it breaks these bonds asunder lo be
forever free. Wc hate a thirst for knowledge,
that is not limited by the stars and yet remains
unsatisfied when we try to penetrate the
secrets of but a single blade of grass. This
world is the scene of effort and of failure; and
if Ill's be "Home," this lind of disappoint
ments and losses, of death and tears; and il
there be nothing beyond ; if the tomb buries
forever the dear deail ; nnd b.vc, hope, joy and
the struggles of life all terminate in the gloom
of the grave, then, almighty God, destroy in
these hearts of ours the consciousness of im
mortality and the longings in this world for a
land and a summer that have no existence!
But not thus do we part with the hopes

Then say not to the dust: wife, mother.
The form over which your teardrops fall is
but Ihe garment that has been laid aside and
the spirit is forever free. That spirit may not
be far away. St. 1'aul urges us to run the

crown from the fact that we arc surrounded
by a great cloud of witnesses, that watch with

The propriety of this is rccocnized atnonc
all educated classes. And the Bible, appre
ciating this fact, addresses the heart gently
and couches what we call death in words of
tenderness. It brings it to our view in pleat,

as an exchange of the earthly encampment for

On the evening of Friday the 30th ultimo,
Ihe parlor of the Hawaiian Hotel was bril
liantly lighted for the display of two pictures
--The Crater of Kllattea, by Jules Tavernier 1
and a. view of Mauna Loa, by J, D, Strong.
Of Mr. Strong's picture it is sufficient to
say that It was a pleasing composition
conventionally treated - and not quite finished.
Two obtrusive figures In the foreground may
be removed with advantage. If finished care
fully, the picture will be worth having.
At an early hour the room was well filled.
Mr. Tavernier's picture hung on the mauka
wall lietwecn the doors. Its graphic realism
won Instant recognition. The few lilictlles
that had been taken with the proportional re-
width of the crater's
of the crater's walls
door and Ihe high!
heightened the picture's effectiveness without
materially detracting frcrn Its truth, A similar
criticism applies with equal force to the posi
tion of the little crater. Those In the audience
whose art appreciation hail been perfected by
too rigid Inslstance upon absolute fidelity to the
truths of naturt, may htve found fault with
those merely mathematical inaccuracies. Hut
eicry genuine admlter of true art read that
picture as every true lover of poetry reads a
poem on amott.
The daring of Tavernier's coloring might
have made those present who had neser been
lo the volcano doubt its truthfulness. Hut
those who had been there were unanimous
in I enthusiastic In their praise. "It is uinly
jver-colorcd," said a ctitical miss. "Have
)ou seen the originil ?" atked her companion.
"Not yet." "Then, begging your pardon,
you arc scarcely qualified to judge.
I have seen it twice. The first time
the color edicts could not be more faithfully
reproduced than they are in that canvass. The
second time there was a riot of livid hues that
the mbJui J coloring of that picture vivid,
startling though it is does not etcn, faintly
indicate. The floor of the great crater was a
molten tea, that broke in billows of fire against
those craggy barriers. 'Over coloring?' It
is absolute fidelity to one of that marvelous
crater s innumerable phases,"
The critical miss said " Oh'!"
The picture has gone to San Francisco and
will probably go on to New York for exhibi
tion In both cities. It is the work of a genius
ind it is to be hoped will find its permanent
iimiic in Honolulu.
Did it ever occur to houskeepcrs how
much cleaner and nicer it is to wash the nap
(ins, towels, handkerchiefs, table linen, etc.,
by themselves, with soap not made of putrid
fats or questionable grease ? I)j it with
"Ivory Soap" (99.4$ p. c. pure), made of
vegetable oil, nnd use them confident that they

There has been little business activity this

wants, the movements of foreign shipping
being so light as to barely come within
record, the arrivals being the French gunboat
Kerguclen from Callao on the 3rd and the

day, the latter reporting a tedious passage
of twenty-eight days. The departures since

The severe test to which Ihe Mac Neale &

warped and Ihe handles melted off. On being
opened, at Messrs. R. More & Co's,, the lock

Many of our residents here, are doubtless,
familiar with the patent adjustable swing which
is In such general use in the parks and other

to securely seal four persons, In a carriage box,
facing each other, and is propelled by the
weight and position of the occupants, who can
easily regulate the movcmenl uf the swing to
any degree of momentum desired so as to
almost approximate perpetual motion. Mr,
