To comluilc this already long letter though
not neccsvitll lo concJiute mv account of the
district! give below r lit of the various
pti which Impeile cultivation, Injjte Riovvth
ml destroy fruit Ami other vegetable product.
In Kohala. II Is, doubtless an incomplete
hit, but it too long for the happiness of the
Rood people vv ho helped me compile it t
lhe o I, a weed of two varieties, is a great
pest. Its seed came to Walmea In the tuck
liu i)l a case of iuor many )urs ago, and
rori Waimea the wretched plant has spread
so that it Is found in Kohala, 1 lamaV.ua and,
doubtless other portions of the island. The
llilo grass, so called because the seed, from
some foreign country, (prolubly Mexico,
where grows a rani, grass apparently like it),
was first rooted in Milo, whence it spread to
every island of the group. The Wandering
Jew (honohono) spreads in the cane fields and
sometimes necessitates extra cultivation to
subdue it. The puVimole, a sigorous shrub,
Invades the taro patches and demands sigilant
attention. The butr weed, once so common
on "the plains" near Honolulu, hasinsadetl
Kohala (having atundoncd the Waimea 1'lains)
and ts a great nuisance. The lantana, though
not yet In fall force, has obtained a foothold in
many xallcss, and has esidcnlly come to stay.
The lantana nuisance is the most dangerous
the district has to face, only determined fight
Ing and concerted action can save the pilches
from ruin. Where it once obtains undisputed
lodgement cventliinz not too large to le
harmed must gisc way before it. If eser
lcst found a congenial habitat the lantana has
found one in the Hawaiian Islands. Some of
the agriculturist law .makers of the neat legis
lature will do well to think of the lantana
nuisance and try and devise ays anil means
for its extirpation. The sorrel (oxalis) is the
bane of several pretty flower gardens in
Kohala. The innocent-looking little plant,
with its leautifullv scalloed, dark green
leases and its pretty pink blossoms, has done
more mischief than a little; and some of the
ladies who are nghting it nih there liad neser
Iwen such a plant.
The black blight attacks man) trees in
KohaU. The oranges and the coffee suffer
greatly. A white insect allacks nearly every
kind of fruit, doing damage only to the soft
skinned sorts. It h the same pest that spoils
mangoes and strawberries in Honolulu.
Doctor liond told me something ilsout it that
is worth repeating, although the fact may be
better known than I think'. The insect has
power of locomotion, though it does no't travel
rapidly or with ease. Itut it i aubJcd by trw
mnt, the common small-sited black ant. The
ant carries the sshite insect from fiuit to fjuit
or leaf to leaf "pasturing" it, so to speak.
It docs so for just the reason that one pastures
a cow to get milk. The white insect secrets
a fluid which the ant consumes. In brief, the
white insect is the ant's cow. There are other
destructise insects. The Iru.h potato is
attacked by a bug; so, lately, W the taro. The
red cane', generally, and, sometimes, the
Lahaina, is troubled by a borer. As yet no
systematic study of these insect pests has been
made so far as I have learned.
I wish to disarm hjpercriticism by admit
ting that my distances, derations, areas and
statistical data in this letter, and in those pre
ceeding and to follow it, hac been and must
be, for the most part, approximate. I hase
tried to verify my figures b) the best informa
tion obtainable, and trust they will prose sery
little misleading and, for the purpose of
general information, substantially correct.
Many readers may miss interesting details
known lolhetn, and which they rightly may
believe would Ik: interesting to others. My
apology it the brevity of my stay. I find,
however, that I failed to do justice to Kohala's
two extensive and well-kept gcnctal mcrchan
disc stores, owned by Hon. S. G. Wilder and
managed by Mr. It. 1'. Wood, assisted by Mr.
W. II. I'alten and Mr. William May.
I find one note unnoted in regard to edu
cation ; la l&(0 the district had S,ooo pupils
in 32 schools; now it has 1,20a pupils in S
I find also an unused note of opXitc im
port. Ten yean ago there was scarcely a
horse or mute broken to harness in the whole
district, Now there are probably oser a thou
sand of both together.
If I csct go again to Kohala I shall try to
obtain notes for an article on its gulches.
Niulii, Aanukao, Halawa, Waianae and Pu

The play of Fanchon the Cricket waa per

Mall lo a select ami appreciative, though
ratbet diminutive audience. Without going
Into any special discussion of the particular
merits of the respective players, we cannot but
pronounce the piece well-played throughout J
and can confidently assert that, in Urge cities,
before Immense audiences, the play has often
been rendered with lets ability than upon this
occasion. The leading ml, as acted by Miss
Emma Heath, was neatly faultless, and the
audience showed their special appreciation of
her acting whenever an opjortunity occurred.
She was loudly encored at the conclusion of
her pctiormancc of the shadow dance. Th
dance around the May pole was well done by
all the actors. The company taken at a
whole, hase perhaps appeared to belter ad
vantage upon this occasion than on any
pfcviout one and they well-deserved a larger
audience than was present. Simon, as Duller
Baibcaud played hit part well and kept the
wdicoce la continuous iniub, at hit take-off
of the Simpleton. We say that this troupe,
tut iha projtr character of their plays, f pcir
ability, and the, nairuuking ct ideal in the
uscmoiUinj of polls deter te good palroiagc

I said good bye to Kohala from Ihe crest nf
the first tfdge aliove lViehuchu. I took off my
lul to the entire district, mspied out in bird t
eye panorama lielow me, and spurred my gooil
gtsy palfrey Into Ihe unexplored liesond
That sentence, by the way, strikes me as a
particularly happy one Unfortunately It'll
not stand anal j ill. I had a guides ami had
fipany spurt t ami which of the baker's dtren
ol cattle trails I should hase taken and wheie
I would have arrived, if I'd follow est my own
geography ot my palfray's nose, l don't pre
tend to know. I say "palfrey" localise It
falls tripping!) from the pen and looks well in
print. In "Hod's country" they would shorten
It to "plug" in speaking of "hooner." Sooner
Is a most accurate pet name, lie would sooner
ttot that run, sooner walk than trot and sooner
stand stilt and think than do cither. Ills
average gait on good toads tgooil gosemment

me that he Is "lough." Ibeliesclhem His
hide attests their judgment. They say he Is
a " long distance horje. I think so too. If
he keeps on improving hell le able lo make a
"long distance" lietween the Honolulu I'ost
Office and the Hawaiian Hotel. And )et (I
write lot the information of M r. Cmran) Sooner
is by no means a "missionary horse." Mr.
Ham 1'urdy of Waimea raised him, rind he
was educated by a Portuguese bullock bo) who
can sweat fluently In Ihtee larguages.
Sometimes I sjieak harshly to Sooner and
sometimes ply the roiw's end with ungentle
sigor. Itut I atit)S gie It up as a bad job,
beg the poor beast's pardon and am foigisen.
With all our faults we rcsiect each other
highly j and Sooncr's price, if he concludes to
return to Honolulu, will be $100.
Ily the way, gentlemen of the Uoyal Ha
wailan Agricultural Society and horsemen
generally, would'nt It be a good scheme to
offer annual ptires for fast walking saddle
horses for fast walkers gencrall) ?
My objective point was Puuhue, "Wood's
Kanch," a well known dairy and stock farm
fite miles south of Mahukona and perhaps
1S00 lect abose the ea. M) companion and
guide was the son of Mr. I.. J. Low, owner of
a small but well-bred tloik of Angcra goats.
His range far more cxtnsie than the present
needs of his flock has its centre a few miles
from the north eat end of Wood's Kanch.
Mr. Low seems to be satislactorily demonstra
ting that Angoras find congenial climate and
fasorable feed on some of the uplands of
Hawaii. Mr. Low thinks, however, that they
take unkind!) to very bush) or ver) rocky
land; but is confident that no other stock can
be bred and pastured to equal profit on good
land. He has been in the business for several
years and has met and overcome many dis
couragements. His she-goats are nearly all
pure-bred ; his breeding bucks are all so. He
will gladly supply information about his own
flock, the drawbacks and the profits of the
businevs, to any one interested, llis address
it L. J. Low, I'uehuchu, Kohala, Hawaii.
Wood's Kanch is managed by Mr. John
Maguire, vvho has the reputation of tieing one
of Ihe most intelligent, energetic and reliable
cattle men in the district. His horses and
cattle look well. I spent one night with him
and found the upland atmosphere delightful
Passing on towards Waimea, early the fol
lowing morning, I passed through theKahuwa
ranch and near the house and barns of Mr. G.
K. Holmes. It is a cheerful feature of a rather
monotonous landscape. The Waimea trail
winds between low, rounded hills, rising from
a few feet to a few hundred feet abov e the nar
row plateau or shelf which forms the first stage
of the journey after mounting the ridge alios e
Puchuehu. Passing Mr. Holme bouse a
more broken and more rocky road is met.
The mountain side is more clearly defined and
the trail skirts it, crossing twenty or more
ravines and intervening ridges. In a few of
the ravines were running streams, which re
main so, usually, more than hall the )car.
The plateau or shelf above mentioned was at
one time tliickl) covered with koa, ohia, ferns
and other growth. It is now-covered by llilo
and maniania grass and weeds fairly good
pasturage, but quite unshaded and essential!)
dry. Ileyond Holmes' the woods begin.
Dead and d)ing trees on every hand mar the
beauty of w hat must once have been a lov ely
landscape. It is saddening, sickening, dis
gusting. As one's mood swa)s one's judg
ment of the criminal stupidity , national and
individual, that has put this blighted beauty
be)ond repair, one wonders whether Xemesis
it asleep, or .dead, or merely biding her time.
Your most fortunate man is not he who
can make bread or a stone or pay his ilebts in
So-cent silver ; but he who may borrow merri
ment from grief or filch a jest from pain. No
man of even sluggish sensibility may come
face to face w ith the hurrying destruction of Ha
waiian forests without wincing. Vet no humor
ist may review the words and acts of the
"forest-lovers" of Hawaii without a smile. I
have in mind one typical " forest lover." He
is a millionaire. Strange to say he is a man of
brains. Perhaps no other man in the kingdom
has so exhaustively and so intelligently studied
the forest question. He hat George P. Marsh
by heart, lie has the German forestry system
at his tongue t end. He loves trees for their
beauty and for their use. He is a life legisla
t r. He has brains, influence and money. He
might have united the power of all three
to pass a measure that would has c added tw cnty
millions to the water wealth of these Ulandt
and inestimable millions to their landscape
beauty. I know not if he has tried and failed.
lit kaJ ne turittiti to fail I
Bah I I am permitting mj self the intemper
ance of indignation. Calmly, however, I should
like lo turn out to grass a few of our rich cattle
men and a few of our house of nobles and other
legislators ; and I should like to herd them on
these trcelcs hillsides.
Mr, Godfrey lltown suggests a reasonable
explanation of the destructiv e action J cattle
upon large trees. As is welt known, most
Hawaiian trees have no tap-ioots. The near
nets of hard pan in nearly all localities forbids
the growth of tap-root trees, or forces them 10
change their root growth. At a result nearly
all forest trees need the protection of under
growth a protection amply afforded by the
fern jungles formerly covering to large an area
of mountain land. The alliance between the
fern jungle and the forest wat a reciprocity
tieaty in the truest tense. The koa and ohia
forests screened the ferns from the fiercest heat
and the wildest wind, while the lernt kept
peiennial moisture and equable tcnipcraturr

ate responsible for neatl) all the damage.
"All right, Mr. Alarmist," cries Csnlcu or
Dontkarikus, as he sitt at his desk or lounges
over his counter ; "All light, but what are you

is absurd. They have vested rights in real

think it has a right to compel cattle men to
fence stock out from the sources ol running
streams and the immediate water shed, l'rom

justly exclude live stock.
Perhaps there could be no further lawful in
terference with the existing privileges of cattle
men. It is too late to get back the immense
tiacts that have slipped from the control of
government into that of wealthy cattle men.
It may be possible to make them sec how ruin

I think fencing around the headwaters and
sides of erennial streams or those Intermittent
streams that have valuable springs along their
courses would perpetuate a valuable propor
tion of forest growth. I'xclmling live stock
from government forest would save still more.
Wise plantation managements will cease indis
criminate firewood cutting, and conserve their
water supply, by protecting their forests.
Small private owners vvho combine common
sense with common good taste will plant trees,
protect their fern lands, and save the finest pf
their still standing timber.
All this applies, please rcmemlicr, to ihose
rocky forest areas unavailable for cane planting
or general farming and are far more valuable, as
an aid to equable rainfall and as protection for
water supply, than the) may ever be as stock
I was sa)ing aloud something to the aliove
effect w hen the clatter of iron on the stony
trail caused Sooner to prick up his pensive
ears. Turning, I was glad to see the always
pleasant face of canny James Kenton of the
Union Mill, at whose generous board I had
taken my last Kohalan meal the noon before,
lie han promised to join me somewhere along
the trail ; but my unusual early rising and
Sooncr's phcmomcnal three miles an hour had
made his stern chase a long one. We were
in thicker woods, fern-fringed and shaded by
full grown trees and underbrush. There, for
the first time, I saw- the poha bush and tasted
'Is acidulous fruit. The icil ohia glowed on
every side, and here and there were bread or
narrow glimpses of the low lands near Kawai
hae and while flccke'd channel lwyond it. We
passed two or three home-looking houses, with
segetable patches and flower plats around
them, with dairy cattle near and sleek-looking
horses quietly pasturing. It was a rock) yet
fertile section, capable, if cultivated by intel
ligent hard work, of supporting a healthy,
happy and numerous population. At least I
thought so, and my companion thought so
also ; though (lerhaps neither of us could
have satisfied himself how a Caucasian, with
his infinitude of artificial wants, could have
united the knotty purxle.
Hut vte both forgot all else earthly as a sud
den turn in the road rev ealcd. above a base
of dull gra) clouds, the snow-capped peak of
Mauna Kca, outlined upon the burnished sky,
a titanic pearl upon a wall of opal.
The cloud belt so exaggerated the appparcnt
hicht of the summit that its 10,000 feet of
altitude we were then nearly 3,000 feet above
the sea seemed five miles of sheer ascent and
the horizontal distance less than a mile.
Mr. Kenton says that in the two or three
score of times he had been over the Waimea
trail he had never had so fine a view of the
mountain. I saw it a lew hours later and it
seemed more tame (in comparison) than Punch
bowl to Tantalus.
An hour later we were eating some of Mrs.
Kenton's excellent sandwiches, and drinking
some vile coffee, in the "Waimea Hotel," the
wtctchedett Chinese restaurant I have seen on
the islands save one in Honuapo, Kau, which
is entitled lo the superlative dispraisr of being
at least as bad.
The distant view of Waimea is charming.
It tuggesti possibilities that ate not confirmed
by closer observation. There are, however,
some attractive homes. I invaded but oneol
them that which Miss Bird to gracefully de
scribed at "Spenccr't Kest." I found Fran
Cisco's Kalstaflian farm and put my (compara.
lively) Utile hand In his, glad to say "good
afternoon" to Sooner ; and still more gUd of
the dip in that big plunge bath some
readers remember to gratefully. Then
I went out and sat on the garden
wall and stared at Mauna Kca -an imperti
nence that it stood without tcbuff.

The annual meeting of the V, M C. A
took place at their hall on Tuesday evening,
b) common consent, Instead of Ihe usual even
ing, Thursday, so as to profit by (he presence
of General-Secretary McCoy of the San I'ran
cisco Association, who would be leaving (lie
nest day per Mariposa, A fair attendance
gathered for the early meeting, at which the
election of officers took place, resulting as
follows 1 J. II. Athcrton, ' president ; I. A.
Dower, vice-president; Kober, Podmore,
sccrct.it); vsilliam Clark, treasurer; anil
Messrs. T. H. Dtvies and P. C, Jones, Jr.,
The committee appoinlcd to secure a general
secretary reported having been In correspon
dence with two parlies for the position, but
learned recently they were nol available.
Through Mr. McCoy they had learned of a
Mr. S. G. Fuller, at present general-secretary
of the Sicramcnto Y. M. C. A., who had had
five years' experience in secretaryships on the
Coast and in the Kast, and ten years In . M.
C. A. work, arid who, he believed, would be
available, rtr. .McCoy was well acquainted
with him and believed him eminently fitted for
the work. On motion the committee was em
iwwerid to extend him a call by the out-going
steamer. The assemblage then adjourned to
meet in the hall alios c to hear the reports of
the retiring officers; the president elect, J. II.
Secretary 11. A Jones gave his report, show
ing the number of meetings held during the
year, the work done by various active com
mittees, and that left undone by a few others.
Fifty-seven new membcis were admitted during
the past ) ear.
The treasurer's report showed the receipts
for the )ear to have been $3,406.55, and ex
penditures $j,2(il.S6, leaving a balance of
$144.69 on hand, with a number of pledges
)et to be redeemed.
The president's address recounted the work
of the )car in a frank and explicit manner; the
gospel temperance committee and the members
who had stood by them receiving favorable
mention, as did also the visiting committee to
hospital, prison and shipping. The various
evening classes showed commendable progress,
and evidently a good work among the young
men of this city was being done. Following
the review of the )ear's work Ex-President
Jones gave an excellent address to young men
on the two phases of the question, " Is life
worth living?" showing how, unless one's aim
and course is guided by the highest principles,
their life would be a failure.
President-elect J. II, Athcrton, tn a few
appropriate remarks relative to Mr. McCoy's
presence al this time and his contemplated
departure on the morrow, introduced him,
whereupon Mr. McCoy said he was glad to be
here, and felt a regret that he was going away
so soon, as he had enjoyed a scry pleasant time
and had learned to love Ihe workers very
dearly. He was pleased to see the good that
had been done here for )oung men, in the es
tablishment of a building that compares favor
ably with any other association for the needs
of the work. Much valuable time, as well as
money, was being devoted by a faithful few
for the benefit of young men in this city, and
he hoped the sacrifices were appreciated ; but
for greater success it wants more consecration,
more active work among the members, and
not to expect the president or general-secretary
(when he comes) to do 11 for them. He trusted
the recently established noon-day prayer meet
ing would be ably sustained, for he felt it to
be a need in this place and would be the
means of duing great good. His remarks were
interspersed with instances or incidents in his
experience with association labors to show the
success that will crown personal effort.
The hall was well filled with members and
friends of the association, among whom was
quite a number of ladies. At the close the
association hymn, "Blest be the Tie that
Binds," was sung. The meeting then ad
journed for refreshments and social conversa
tion. Ample provision of good things had
been made by Mrs. Jones and kindly hands
aided in the distribution of ice-cream, cake
and coffee till all felt satisfied. It was a sue

We have just been thinking how language
came into this wotld. It was during Adam
and Kvc's first quarrel, when one wonMirought
on another. It, however, seems incomprehen
sible how the words "Stalagmites" and
"Stalactites" originated) ct we know they arc
used to designate pcculitr specimens of
minerals kept for talc b) Mr. A. L. Smith,
No. 8j Fort street, where, also, can be found
a very fine collection of photographic views of
various objects of interest In these islands,
which it will repay any visitor to inspect.
Grocer, vvho has lately joined the militia,
practicing in his shop! "Right, left, light,
left. Four paces to the rear ; march I" falls
down trap-door into the cellar. Grocer's wife,
anxiousl) : "Oh, Jim, arc ou hurl?'' Grocer,
savagely, but with dignity : "Go away,
woman ; what do )ou know about war?" This
grocer was nol one of the firm of II. V.. Mc
Intire & Hro,, corner Fort and King streets,
as they have their time fully occupied in attend
ing to their legitimate business without
engaging in military operations. If you arc
keeping house it will pay you to purchase a
supply of their fine groceries and provisions
especially one of those Westphalia hams im
ported direct from Germany by steamer and
rail, not forgetting an assortment of their fresh
canned goods and fresh roasted and ground
coffees, as well as teas and the thousand and
one other articles in Iheir line.
The mayor of a village refuses his authoriza
tion to an itinerant quack who wishes to sell
his wonderful elixir of life, warranted to cure
corns, toothache, consumption, liver complaint
theumatism, and boils, and equally available
as a cement for broken crockery, an insect ex
terminator, and a leather preservative. His
worship is afraid that the vaunted panacea may
contain noxious drugs. "Oh, there is no danger
of that, )Our "excellency," says the quack, as-
suringly ; "nothing in it but cold water." "I
beg )our pardon, then," sa)S the ma)or, sing
ing the authorization ; "I was afraid there
was some fraud about it. pne thing is
certain, thcu is no fraud in dealing with the
Union Feed Co., corner Queen and Edinburgh

If there is one thing more than another that
will wilt the stifles! stand-up collar, cause the
face to burn and assume a color rivaling in
brilliancy that of the head of a proud lurke
gobbler, create a weakness of the knee-joints,
and a desire that the pav ement ma) open and
swallow him up, it is when a )oung fellow vvho
is spreading himself on the sunny side of a
fashionable thoroughfare, discovers that the
price, of his read) -made coat is still fast in the
collar. Then to him life has lost its charms,
the future of his existence sinks into insignifi
cance. To avoid such a catastrophe go lo Mr. L. B.
Kerr, merchant tailor at No. 27 Merchant
street, and have vour clothing made to order,
Mr. Kerr alwa)t has in stock a large assort
