is Hearing completion on the Lihue
Plantation, by which the old , j
meandering, long drawn line of

the Plantation, extending the whole
way across the estate.

Not in many years have the
mango trees been so profusely cov

The coffee trei s have also been
phenominally white and fragrant
with a wealth of flowers, that lay
along the branches like a fresh fall
of snow. Especially resplendent
were some fine tall Lilierian trees
at Grove Farm.
We trust that this profusion of
blossom means a .similar profusion

the children have become very apt
in arranging and binding hooks
