ii Some two years or more ago, when Russia first occupied
Manchuria, the News asserted that the powers would s'mply be
used as cat's paws, and that the monkeychefski would get what
ever chesnuts were raked out of the fire. Today, Russia refuses
to give up Manchuria, and is in a favorable position to make good
her claim. If a war comes, it will be Russia on one side against
Oreat Rritain and Janan on the other, and- the scene of war will
quickly shift from Manchuria to

-rfsX The burial of our dead is a serious question, so far as it be
. comes a sanitary matter, and although it has been the custom of
; Hawaiians to use t). eir door yards iii some instances as burial
t grounds, yet the time has come
should be adopted, and the Hawaiians should be encouraged to
tako the lead in such matter. Of course, proper cemeteries and
burying grounds should be secured, at public expense if neces
sary, and then all alike should be compelled, by law if necessary,
to put away their dead where they will not be a future menace to
the health of the living.
JQI Senator Paris of Hawaii "butted in" where he had no particu
lar business when he objected to and defeated the' diislon of tho
road appropriation lor Haleakula. $3,000 for a trail and $2.,0Q0. for
the complete repair of the cottage on tho summit of ; Haleakala
would have been a much more proper and sensible division of the
proposed appropriation, and if it

L., Paris and prevail on him to spend one shivery night on the sum

The landlocked Mediterranean,
which was tho only sea known to the
Romans and Greeks of twenty ocld
centuries ago, was filled with myt-
lerious terrors, while the more dis
tant land" bordering on it were thrt
abodes of wonders and strange peo
ples. Gods of monstrous shapes ruled
the waters, enchanting sirens dwelt
on the islets and rocks and on the dry
land beyond were to be found weird
enchantresses tire breathing beasts,
fierce pygmies und dreudfulcannibals.
Adventurous voyagers who got lis
far as the pillars of Hercuies, now
called the strait of Gibraltar, brought
back intelligence that the great
ocean beyond was not navigable. It
was part of the mighty river which
flowed orouud the flalcarih in an un
ending stream. , . ...
Tradition says that there was in
those thrift utGibraltar a stone pillar
100 cubit 8 high, with a brass statue
on it and an inscription stating this
to be the limit of, navigation. Beyond
was a "sea of darkness," infested
with terrors beyond the power of
imagination to conceive. Occasionally
a bold navigator did, nevertheless,
venture outside into the Atlantic, but
was compelled to turn back very
quickly. A whirlwind would arise
and threaten to swamp the vessel,
or, more alarming still, a gigantic
hand, supposed to be that of Satan,
would emerge from tho ocean of
eternal gloom and warn back the
Not merely on these accounts was
the ocean impracticable for ships.
It was reported to be so dense with
saltness and so crowded with sea
weeds and huge beasts that headway
could not be made through it. Even
up to the time of Columbus such be
liefs prevailed, and his crews were
terrified on entering the Sarsgossa
sea by the weeds and calms.

is full of proofs of desigu. Notice,
for example, the arched backbone,
constructed in such a way as to

The Barred Road.
"There is only one road to success
in life," said the man who had made
his lucky and retired.
' ''And how shall I know the road?"
inquired the budding young man.
"Well," replied. the man with the
lucky, "you go right along this path
of adversity until you reach the first
turn to the right."
"And you'll find a road barred off
with a gate and a sign that says 'No
Trespassing.' Wel!,ihat's it." Balti

Wbles In the Thames.
, In former times the appearance of
a whale In tho river Thames was
considered ominous. One was caught
off Greenwich thrpe months prior to
the death of Oliver Cromwell, and
the common opinion was expressed
by Heath in his "Flagellum." "It
pleased God," he remarks, "to usher
in his end with a great whale three
months before, June 2, that came up
as far as Greenwich and there was
killed." Evelyn, in his "Diary," un
der the date of June 3, 1658, mentions
that a whale was killed off Greenwich
and that it drew an "infinite con
course to see it by water, horso,
coach and on foot from London aud
all parts." According to Robert
Hubert, in his "Catalogue of Nat
ural Rarities," tho tongue ot this
whale was exhibited daily for some
time at tho "Niter, near the west
end of St. Paul's church."
In February, 1857, unother whale
was caught in the Thames, and in the
Times of that month appenred an ad
vertisement fo a piece ot ground
some 40 feet bv 60 feet, "on which to
exhibit a whale.'' The piece of
ground advertised for was found in
the Mile End road, and the whaie
was exhibited until March li. In the
same month namely, on March 21
ox pi red the house of commons, which
had been elected in 1852.
Lincoln's Strongest Attribute. I
The strongest attribute of Lincoln
was his power of self control. Sentl
ntent might sway him but a mob
never moved him. When jealousies
in the army bred a a popular clatror
against General Grant, while the
latter was winniug famous victories
in the southwest Lincoln listened to
no word of scandal and by his silence
rebuked the defamers of the general
who afterward became the admira
tion of the. world. Wheu in the fever
ed tumult of passion un angry north
seemed to voice a general demand
for the infliction of the death penalty
upon Jefferson Divis, Lincoln listen
ed in silence and waited for reason
to resume its sway. - He was always
looking over the heads of tho crowd.
He was always listening to the still
small voice that echoed it the dis
tance, far away from tho , roar of
Vehement denunciation. Ttie majesty
of tlie law constantly appealed to his
fine judicial sense. Leslie's Weekly,
One of the most exciting of all rid
ing games is paper hunting, or fol
lowing a troil made by dropping of
pieces of paper. It can be made as
dangerous as Bteeplechasing or no
more so than au ordinary gallop ever
the fields. Tho danger is in the
fences to be ridden over, says Coun
try Life In America. There is no
limit to the pace but the speed of the
leading horso and the necessity of
keeping the trail. The "hare," as
the man a horseback who lays the
trail is called, is expected to foil his
pursuers, the "hounds," as often as
he cau by the arts-of the fox or by
his own ingenuity, only restricted by
certain rules of the game.

Western Cities Lively.
The eastern visitor finds the cities
of the northwestern coast brimful of
life, color, significance, picturesque
interest, nnd though the forces which
have combined in their making are
somewhat similar, each has a distinct
character and individuality. "Live
ly " a word of the west, may well be
applied to them a sort of brisk
activity, youthfulness, ozone. They
have the rather unusual capacity of
doing big things and talking about
them lustily at the same time. It is

watch us grow. See us getting to
the front." Ray Stannard Baker iu
How a Boy Explained a Parable.
There Is r.o saying how the aver
age small boy sor.ie times regards
religious truth. A London paper
records that the son of a well known
bishop being asked to explain the
meaning of the parable of the grain
of mustard seed replied, "It means
that, a little religion goes a long way,
and those who have the least of it
here will be highest in the kingdom
of heaven." Leslie's Weekly.
