W hat could be expected in a translation of such a j
wrk T Perfect success, doubtless, in giving the ex
act meaning intended !
It was, however, the trans-
Litor'a honest intention to give the work the benefit
of clttir and appropriate language, aud not to expose .
thec merely philological inaccuracies.
Let us now take tlie first passage in question :
44 Heaha ka mea c hiki mai an i ko kakou oia an
no (not i) ko kakou bapekiko ana?" "Anglicus"
j contesscs it ia 44 unfortunately vague." He says,
however, that the compiler was evidently desirous to
: conclude with asking what were the obligations.
How evidently t I don't see it. There Ls nothing in
the context to indicate it as evident. What do the
' words used mean? 7J hiki mai ana is always used
: to denote something coming, something to happen
rot external causet. never to denote what a jicrson ;
is to do himself. It is objective, never subjective, j
: What native, lieing asked, 44 Heaha ka mea e hiki
! mai ana ia or," would dream that it was meant, ;
44 What ought you to do?" Then the phrase 44 i ko j
kniuu tda ana" is unfortunate, for the word oia I
i never means a course of life, but simply life as op- !
j jaesl to death, recovery as opposed to sickness,
i taftty as tipposeil to destruction. .Xbho ana is the pro
' jr phrase to denote a course of life. The phrase here J
would naturally mean 44 While we live." 44 No ko j
kakou bajickiko ana " signifies 44 in consequence of j
t our Baptism." Compare the common phrase 44 no ;
j ka mea." The whole question then means, most nn-
niistakably, nothing different from the words used by j
the translator, 44 What will 1 wrought m our lives :
through Baptism." It will most certainly 44 lie be- '
io.vo.1 " that the translation reads thus, the hands of '

dozen other similar irrclcvancies may 1 pointed out

was beyond the power of any earthly Priuceor Poten-

It is a beautiful arrangement, the nut being itself
covered with a natural growth ot inown Hair WHICH
