Varied Theories as to How the

Bolivian mountain side seized a bush
to prevent himself from falling, and,
the bush being pulled loose from its
scanty hold on the rocks, ho saw its
crooked roots grasping masses of

But has your intelligent curiosity ever
led you to Inquire how those ores came
to be where they are and nowhere

makes a gold nugget?
Possibly you think thnt gold and
other metals grow somewhat as fruits
do in soils and climates that are spe
cially suited to them. Well, there is
considerable truth in thnt bleu, and
the word "grow" Is, in one sense, sur
prisingly applicable to such deposits.
But there is a great deal more in the
matter than you would imagine, and
on no subject has science fought more
battles royal thuu on this of the origin
of metallic ores. I think that there are
some geologists who would rather find
out this secret to the very bottom than
discover the richest lode that the ribs
of the earth contain. If they could do
both that would be perfection, and we
must not forget that knowledge is
Until about 400 years ago everybody
who thought about it at all believed
that veins of precious ore were dis
tributed under the Influence of the
planets. At that time astrology held
the place of science.
Finally George Agrleoln, a German
mineralogist, who lived about the tlmo

German geologist Werner set forth a

the nnme of the "Neptunlst theory,"
from Neptune, the god of the sea.
Werner's idea was that as the earth

and that when the rocky crust was

But a hundred years ago the Nep
tunlst theory, which had swept every
thing before it iu the minds of men
of science, met its Waterloo at the
hands of Ilutton, the Scottish geolo
gist, with his "Plutonic" theory (from
Pluto, the god of the infernal regions).
Huttou's idea was that the materials
which fill the metallic veins were melt
ed by heat and forcibly injected into
the clefts and fissures of the strata

prlncipul role. The American geolo
gist, Van Hise, is the author of one of
the latest theories, according to which
meteoric water (coudeused atmospheric
vapor) penetrates deep into the earth's
crust, and, with steadily increasing
temperature, takes up miuernl matter
into solution. Spreading, as it gets
deeper, the water reaches larger open

RAYMOND IN THE LEAD
Honolulu The Star-Bulletin's Washington correspondent writes
that all hopes of Governor Finkham's renomination have been abandon
ed. The race now centers to Dr. Raymond, rjf Maui, and Clinton J.
llutchins, with Dr. Raymond in the lead. Walker the Advertiser's
correspondent, writes that llutchins is on his way to Hawaii, fully con
fident of his early appointment.
llutchins' residential bar limit was up on February 13th.
Honolulu Ernest Walker, Washington correspondent, writes to
the Advertiser concerning a mysterious ruling by the State department
requiring travellers to Hawaii to secure passports. It appears that the
same ruling is in effect in regard to Porto Rico, but that ruling has
been published while the Hawaiian has not been published and the autho
tities refuse any explanations in regard to it. The correspondent says
(lovernor Frcar and Kuhio will have to secure passports to return to
Hawaii.- McClcllan is. attempting to probe into the matter of the order
but is securing small satisfaction. Moses T. Clegg, who recently ar
rived to became superintendent of the Queen's hospital, was twelve
rl.iys in New York before being able to secure a passport to come to
Hawaii, he having first to prove to the collector of customs that he had
legitimate business in Hawaii. Others now in the east have cabled
here for their naturalization papers and the like in order to prove their
American citizenship. The peculiar thing about the whole matter is
that Honolulu passports on the Coast are not subject to such restric
tions. When Clegg inquired of the collector of the port at San Francis-co-for
instance, he was told that no passport was necessary.

The Service Flag for the Makawao
Union Church and Community was
unfurled last Sunday with eleven
stars upon it. The Paia company of
the National Guard was present. The
minister, the Rev. A. Craig Bowdish,
said in part:
This Service Flag is a memorial
and a reminder of the great world
crisis that is just beginning to touch
us in this island. .A Maui boy has
yielded his life in the line of service.
Every one wishes that real peace
might come before more stars need
to be added to this flag. We certain
ly will rejoice if none of the . blue
stars must be changed to gold. - Yet
we feel sure that each one will will
ingly make the supreme sacrifice, if
the occasion dmands it. This ser
vice flag is a reminder to us one and
all that some of our number have con
secrated their lives that "liberty
may survive and democracy become
worldwide." Those who stay at
home cannot do less than cheer and
support in every way those who go.
In and around this situation centers
the meaning of the church and com
munity motto for the year, "This one
thing I do."
There can be no slackening of effort
or loyalty when we consider what
Germany has done which leaves her
a moral bankrupt and utterly unreli
able in word and deed.
Religion An Exchange
Rev. 3:18 "I counsel thee to buy of
A noted poet once gave as a defini
tion of religion, "It is renunciation..'
It was more than suspected that he
never Sad any close, vital connection
with religion. This is not the defini
tion an experienced Christian would
give, and not that of the Bible, and
not that of Jesus. To say that reli
gion is renunciation is to say some
thing that has a slight color of truth,
and just enough to mislead. Jesus'
definition, as shown in many of his
words, as taught in the text, is: : Re
ligion is an exchange. There is a
giving up, but only in exchange for
something better. The man who lays
down his piece of money on the store
counter does so that he may receive
in exchange something that he needs
more. God made our world on this
principle of exchange.
The apple tree gives up her beauti
ful. Pink and white blossoms for a
harvest of valuable fruit. The mother
gives up her little baby and gets in
exchange, a little boy, and in time
loses the little boy, and gets in ex
change a young man as tall as her
self of whom she is proud. The child
gives up his hours of play and instead
sits patiently in the school room and
learns to read. Where got that man
his wonderful skill with his hands?
He exchanged time and patience and
labor for it. . Religion is not different
in principle. Jesus is represented as
saying: "I counsel thee to buy of
me." "Come into my market," he
virtually says to us, and buy the
things that are really worth while
things for the soul."
What does he offer us in exchange
for what we can bring? For one
thing a larger, better life. We are
all of us sent into this world on a
mission; the fulfilling of that mission
is the largest life possible. What is
that mission? Not simply to get a
living, though incidentally that is
important. When a. young man en
ters a college or university he is
asked: "What will you make your
major"? that Is. the chief thing. It
would not be an adequate answer to
ray, "to set a place to board." Jesus
says our .major in life's school is to
seek first the Kingdom of God and
H's -righteousness, and all necessary
things will be added. Exchanged
