Doe anyone know aught of primeval
Liluitu, I wn.iilcr, mare thin this
that slit w.n (Kjpulotis and paradisical ;
thit the vm vit in the face of her, and
tiie ,i laved her shores night and day ?
Of all the mt'tt, tongucd trippingly
from generation to generation, tli.it
now seldom scclc to beguile the more
worldly ear, I find little that concerns
I.ahain.i ; it sccnn that she originally
lay under the sun, n fact patent today,
and that her grapc-blouoms were sweet
- the breath of her maidens not more
so but of these latter, both have de
generated along with her court-favors
and her commcrtx.
I write of the middle-age of the Ha
waiian era, when royalty had already
abandoned her to her slumbers and she
was no loncer the capital: when oy
agcrs graciously arrived and departed
bv schooner the most doubtful craft
afloat : when, if once or twice in the
vcar. a whaler dropped anchor in the
road-stead it was apparently for no
other purpose than to kill time with
water-melon orgies and make a sil
houette against the celebrated sunsets
I may add, in both she was eminently
Vour toilers and spinners would have
found life slow, no doubt, for they
flourish in the hurly-burly, but it was
sweet and commendable for all that.
There was a reviving coolness in the air
about day-brealc that was quite irresisti
ble : we were out of bed and into the
sea long before the sun looked over the
eastern hill tops by the bye, they are
uncommonly lofty m the rear of La-
haina. Collce was then in order, and a
stroll through the main street that has
but one civilized side, for the wave
breaks lightly upon the other and, as a
thoroughfare for the amphibious, it is
perhaps the broadest in the world,
stretching, as it docs, from the Lahaina
breadfruit1, to the bamboos of Cathay.
A bountiful breakfast waited upon the
sharpened apjietitc and this was fol
lowed by a long pcacc-ptic shared with
the gossips of the town : some of these
worthies used to, assemble at the cus
tom house, a semi-serious conclave
whose unwritten history is well nigh
forgotten ; there was T , the
cncyclopxdia of anecdote; his apropos
followed upon the heels of every utter
ance and he was never known to repeat
himself; there was S , the
mystery, of whom it was said, his
mother-tongue had a step-mother rival
in the Arabic ; he certainly had an
oriental air, and secretly dealt in spells
and magic, for all we know to the
contrary ; and there was O .
the great communicator ; he could say
more in a minute than he could stand
to in a month.
The centlc historian, with placid eye,
surveyed us" from his mount of tradi
tion, no doubt marveling mat we couiu
play so thoughtlessly .upon the surface
of things, the foundations of which
were laid in the myths of the ages.
We laughed at care then and from
time to time went out upon the high
veranda and scoured the sea with a
telescope in search of phantom-ships ;
we were invariably lost in amazement
that they were not even then making
for the palm-fringed port tinder full
sail, so that the commodore might,
that very evening, sit with us under the
breadfruits and watch the sun go down.
The sun-down-sca was a sight to be
hold 1 there were always a couple of
islands put in for effect, and the whole
population came out to look on with
an audible approval that was like the
drone of bees: we invariably dozed
before this hour, so as to be equal to it,
and then awoke and drove briskly to
and fro among the groves to quicken
our senses. Ily this time the sky began
to show symptoms and the sea to grow
sympathetic but I'll not go all through
a Lahaitu sunset at this late date, for
there never were two alike and I know
not which to choose.
After the sunset, precipitous twi-

among the tombs ; his habitation once
held royal dust, if I mistake not, and
was revisited by a veritable ghost, a
filmy shade lhar I had seen time
and again, and at which a pet dog was
wont to erect his hair as the porcupine

At nine o'clock wc assembled in the
dusky sitting room, a room that was
dusky even when the astral-lamp was
flanked by waxen satellites flickering in
tall class shades; tapestried with
shadows and having dark furnishings
that ahiorbed the light. It was a room
in which to tell a tale or to nourish the
eravest superstitions ; flat Chinese
paintings ot Chinese sea-ports, in gro
tesquely carved frames, and tattooed
walrus tusks shone dimly among the
trophies of T ' early voyages. At
nine r. M., on the stroke of the clock,
a coolie entered with bowls of scalding
tea ; a fragile Chinese table was placed
bv each occupied chair, the tea dis
pensed, and then we smoked and sip
ped and chatted while the gray night

recognize the outline of the mountains,
the song of the sea, the clatter of the
indigenous boat-boy. Does the green
lane still thread the bread-fruit grove
and lose itself from time to time in a
guava-jungle? Do the gold-fishes dart,
llamc-like, among the rushes in the lor
saken canal? Are the eyeless skulls
staring at the sun as they lie bleech
ing in the white sand on the road
to Kaanapali And the (Jpves, the
fair white doves dart they out of
the belfry of the native church when
the bell begins to swing and ring?

ones under the trees, as Plato taught ?
and sing mass with failing voices, some
of them, and feed sparingly, all of

swimmers climb a comber as lightly as
the petrel and trip it along the fringing
crest like water-sprites ? Does any one
find his way into the little white-washed
calaboose and there converse gaily
through the grating with the I'eri on
the other side of the gate? is she as
warm and comfortable and lazy and
luxurious a strip of tropical territory as
she was wont to be before death or
dcvelish activity laid a hand on her?
Well, I suppose I must go and sec
for myself, and may heaven prepare
me tor all reverses.
I shall never forget my last night in
I jhaina: all nature slept; even the sea
was hushed, now and again an o,ver
rioe mango or a breadfruit dropped
into the grass with a muflled sound;
once a dead palmbranch fell with a
crash in the cocoa-grove at the front of
the garden, and then all was stiller than
ever : Lanai and Kahoolawe rested like
clouds upon the water, and one
shadowy ship, with shadowy masts and
siurs and rigging as fine as a spider-
web, hung suscnded in the breathless
moonlight. C w. 5.

turesqucly placed upon a knoll cloc
upon the sea, and almost hidden in
the thick undergrowth about it. It is
n ruin, evidently long without an occu
pant, but when wc lirst found it, in a
fair slate of preservation, and wc yetted
Uxi it with a delightful sense of pro
prietorship feeling that we owned a
house. There was no one to dispute
our taking immediate possession, and
there never has been, though we have
visited it many times and spent many
happy hours in and about the plare.
We came upon it unexpectedly,
diverging from the main road into a
grove of Piide-of India trees which
enticed us with their welcome shade.
This grove of trees proved to be in the
rear ol our domain, and emerging from
it wc came into the open ground
behind the house and thence around
to our new- front door. TlTe 'Uoorwjs !

appropriating only the verandahs ex
tending along the front nnd end of the
house. From this outlook wc could
catch the salty breeze wafted over the
blue l'acific, and enjoy the thunderous
roll of the creamy waves upon the
rocks. From this spot the hut seemed
familiar to us. We had noticed it
often in other walks along the beach,
and we recognized in it the subject of a
sketch by a favorite artist. It occurs
to me' that his claim must be prior to
my own, and that I may have to resign
my rustic cottage after all.
I am sure the place has a history,
and it docs not take much imagination
to depict it, so often has such a history
been repeated upon these islands
among their simple people. There are
unmistakable evidence? that it was not
a purely native home. Whoever
selected the spot had an eye to fine
effects, and culture that was quick to
respond to the charms which sur
rounded. Over the sea his open door
could catch the first pink rose of sun
rise, and at sunset see the faraway dome
of Mauna Loa purple in the "twilight
shade. Over these bounding waves is
repeated the never ending play of light
and color, and in the remoteness and
isolation of the barrier cliff is just the
hiding-place which hungry love would
scire upon. We do not need to be
told, for wc are sure, that it was a
white master who, with his swarthy
bride, made this luxurious retreat his
home. An American no doubt, young
and full of the spirit of romantic adven
ture, whom fate had dropped at last
upon these lovely shores. And here
idling among the flowers, summer sun
shine and soft moonlight, urged to go,
yet compelled by a sweet fascination to
linger, the days went by.
Just over this ravine, not a stone's
throw away, is the primitive village of
l'uuco. There to-day the natives keep
their ways less touched by the influ
ences of civilization than upon almost
any other portion of 0)n island.
Though close upon the village of Hilo,
with its pretty neatness of streets and
school-houses, and door yards, this is
decades away from it all. The little
cluster of huts is a community of fish
ermen, their canoes are beached upon
the green" banks, and their nets lie
spread upon the grass to dry in the
sun. Here the halt-clothed bronze
native, squatted upon the ground,
pounds his taro, and the fat smiling
mother lies upon her mats dozing and
playing with her babies.
Here no doubt, was the dark-eyed
beauty whose languishing glances stole
our hero s heart away, and made him
forget home and friends and native
land, to live among these childlike
people, with their feasting and song
and rippling laughter, and to let the
noisy world go oy with its toil and
clamor and unsatisfying greed why
not? And so he yielded; the fair
Circe had him in her enchantments
and this dainty spot became a home.
The rest of it? how well we . know
it. For a time loves glamour blinHed
our poet's eyes. Languid grace and
supple limbs, childlike dependence,
feast and song were enough ; youth's
romance asked no more. Perhaps
with his own hands he reared these
humble walls, and through long dreamy
star-lit eves, sat looking out into the
far away horizon, with never a sigh for
the vanished land Here by day he
delighted in adorning the grounds,
which still bear the marks of a care-
taking hand. The grass is tall and
thick, but it cannot quite conceal that
cluster of lillies with their pure white
blossoms ; here on this verandah rail
flutter the stems of a jessamine with
their pale stars. Over there arc affec
tive groupings of oleanders, and purple
phlox, and scarlet Hibiscus gle.-i.ming
agiinst the daik, background of the
cliff; and there are bananas and papa-
las with their rich truitage, and farther
away still, the luxuriant avenue of
Pride-of.Indias which first beckoned
us thither. O, it was a post's home,
with love's sweet surrender and jealous
Hut the inevitable awakening came.
Love is not always blind, nor can pas
sion and sense always fetter the poet
soul. When at length lie saw that the
ixjicclain v'asc was only clay, that
beauty and grace did not mean virtue,
and that only dishonor and shame
were his portion, then loyc-rcyolted,
and a terrible rage yifid biagenes
rankled in its place, fim tlfeTSJUC
visions of childhood iretured and a
restless longing to throw ytf tliJitcful
fetters that bound down 'WsensflSlilv
anil degradation the nature' too trucf
itself to be vanquished. Qniyxmc
thing more remained to the wotfql
tragedy of mistake and blame. In the
stillness of daikness, with only the
stars to look down upon the whispering
waves, our disappointed enthusiast slips
oat into the night the swift canoe
carries him over the hushed waters to
the white-sailed vessel lying in the
oiling, and morning dawns Uwn the
deserted maiden, and the, white sail is

the fruit with bitter taste which its
owner tosses from his-hands ? She dis
appeared, perhaps she died, and the
little thatched home among the rocks
was left a ruin.
1 ollcn marvel at the incuriotisness
of native boys, so unlike our American
species. This little hermitage of mine
could never have stood upon the out
skirts of any New Kngl.tnd town tin

glass would have been to the unerring

thatched roof, what a hay-mow for
boyish pranks I And yet wind and
tempest have done at last what native
inriiriousity would never do. First the
verandah floor fell in, and then a frisky
storm burst open the bolted door ; and
Under the pent caves the wind held

There is a pathetic interest in going
through this tiny hut, now that I know-
so much about it. In one corner of
the room, high up on a shelf, I sec
stored avvav the remnants of a bed
stead, and some palm-leaf mats. She
must have left them there. And there
on the wall opposite me are tacked two
pages from a calendar, stained with
rain and mould. I can read the dates,
iSCS, and 1869 upon them. These
were undoubtedly the years of th.s
happy romance, when love and trust,
beauty and bloom, made this spot a
paradise, so ruthlessly destroyed at
last. And so it is almost a score of
years since my American adventurer,
disillusionized, sailed away over the
phosphorescent Pacific, ir. his bobbing
canoe, borrowed perchance from the
grandfather of my l'uuco baby, sprawl
ing out there in the grass, and left
only the memory of a passing scandal
