This is not so truein Wailuku as in othor places where eompeii

tablishing a business here, couiitions almost compel success. Tin
degree of such success however is of course measured by the
Crtiergy devoted to the enterprise.
5 The Honolulu papers very sensibly resolved to publish all ob
tainuble news concerning the alleged plague cases in Honolulu and
this was unquestionably the proper course, because the truth
should be known in any event, and the folly of attempted suppres
sion was demonstrated by the San Francisco papers If the Hon
olulu papers unhesitatingly give publicity to the whole matter, it
will soon bo understood that there is nothing to fear from the oc
casional reappearance of sporadic cases of plague in Honolulu, m
ease they do reappear, and thus travel to the Islands will not bo
It Is quite possible and not surprising that a case of sporadic
plague developed in Honolulu, and Honolulu has been singularly
fortunate that such a thing has not happened before now. It is
quite likely that other such cases may occasionally develop, for the
next year or two. Hut there is no need for alarm, becaijso the
plague will not become epidemic in Honolulu again during this geiie?

MttrU Twain's Fidelity and'
Tlierr k one side of Mark Twain's
rhurncter that merits the admiral ion
o every one: It lias been splendidly
shown in lii- determination to pay
tho liabilities incurred through the
failure of a publishing house and in
the success of his five years' effort.
I'ut it does not stop there. He is
faithful to the last degree to even'
promise lie makes. Some years nyo
he was elected a member of a
prominent Grand Army Tost in
Maryland, and he promised to be
present at the annual meeting ard
make address. It was an opport
unity for the people of Baltimore to
tlolugehim with hospitality, and a
committee was formed to take
chage of him for a big reception ns
soon as he was through -with his
speeelii at the banquet. Thi3 speech

not break his engagement with the
Grand Army Post, out th reason he
did not accent 'he reception also was
that, within a few minutes after ho
had concluded his address, he was
taking the first train home.
Another story illustrates his fidel
ity to his friends. In a certain city
he was visiting a man who had be
come prominent in literature, al
though poor in the goods of this
world. The leaders in society had
invited Mark Twain to a reception
and he had alwut concluded to go
when, ho asked if his friend would also
be present. Tho reply was that he
liad no,t been invited. Instantly Mr.
Clcmeiis said that, under no eircuir.
stances. would ho attend the functior,
and when au explanation was presr
ed for h said a few things that made
the snobs feel rather humiliated.
In another case. he. assisted in a
reading, and, finding that the other
man was in need of money, refused
to accept a penny for his, services or
his expenses. All the proceeds went
to the poorer man.
Some Men Grow on, l.c.ee.
The Sioux Indians stiU. share with
the. old Aryan aud Semitic tribes in
tho belief tha,t there are. trees that
bring forth human beings and others
that bear various portions of the
human body, and in the fourteenth
century au Italian traveler, on arriv
ing at Malabar was told by the natives
that the ground abounded with a tree
that bore, men and women. The lat

Here was the opportunity which
gave birth to aluminous idea, and
re September morning there ap
peared in the columns o tho JiVw
York Sun a long article filled with
nformation that was well calculated
to astonish 1 he world.
The article stated that 'Sir Jiohn
Herschel, with the help of Sir Do.vid
Brewster, hal devised certain ap
paratus for increasing in a marvou
)us way the magnifying power of the
telescope, and the instruments em
ployed were described in tho utmost
detail. So wonderful wero the results
obtained that, when the great tube
was turned upon the moon, the sur
face ot that satellite was brought
within an apparent distance of two
hundred yards. Flowers, recogniz
able as rose-poppies, were actually
seen growing ov-.m- basaltic rocks,
and the shifting of a screw brought
into view green valleys, in which
browsed animals resembling the
bison, with here and there flocks of
pelicans and cranes, aud goats that
had a single horn, like the fabled
unicorn. At length, as the lunar
landscapes were made to travel suc
cessively across the field of the teles
cope, some winged beings, in other
respects human-like, were seen to
alight upon a grassy plain. Their
wings were like tha-.e of bats, and
they conducted themselves in a sing

cnerally accepted as entirely vera

expressed skepticism. 'When the joke

that they frequent pinion trvs and
