Wlion we (uk up the papers and read tlie
.sayinos and tloiiits of some " tlistintiislied
men" (ahrnad), we are ili.-posed to think
tliat they are ' distinsuisheil " in the same
manner as t he donkey t hat cavorts about
town in front of the Metropolitan Meat
Market cart. Everybody knows him by
liis ea rs, hide and antics.
The followin"; list of prices paid for adver
tising in the United .States may tend to
enlighten our business men on tlie grand
secret of success: The Chicago Tribune, it
is said, for a column a year receives So.OOO.
Tlie New York Herald receives for its lowest-priced
column j:?9,72o, and for its high
est $;J4S,ooo. The New York Tribune for its
lowest $-0,711, and for its highest SS5,G4s,
ami these papers are never at a loss for
advertisements to till their columns. Their
patronage come- not from any desire to
assist the respective papers, but from busi
ness men who tindit profitable to ad verlise.
It is well to notice the small number of
cases of drunkenness that have appeared
on tlie (locket at the Police Court during the
past week. In spite of the prognostications
which were freely made by certain parties
just before and immediately after the re
cent modification of the liquor law came
into effect:, drunkenness seems to be con
lined to a very limited proportion of tlie
population. The practice of drinking to
excess, too, which has never been prevalent
to any great extent in this community, is
evidently becoming less and less popular
even among that class which is supposed to
be more especially fond of indulgence.
The prevalence of small-pox iu China has
incited the foreign medical men to make
inquiries regarding tlie remedies of the Chi
nese in such eases. Throughout tlie whole
of the Fokien province they were pleased to
find that inoculation by vaccination has
superseded botii the customary methods of
infusion through tlie nostrils of a violent
Chinese medicine; each of which supposed
remedies tended to otherwise impair the
constitution. When even the Chinese sec
the efficacy of vaccination, and generally
adopt thid method as a preventive of dis
ease, it appears passing strange that in
more civilized . oun tries there are still to be
found many so blinded by prejudice as to
allow their oilspring to sutler Irom this dire
compiaiut, and so encourage an epidemic
We recently called attention to the fact
that drivers of cabs are frequently exorb
itant in their charges. Now there is a com
plaint that several drivers have taken men
who were in a state of semi-intoxication to
tlie outskirts of the city, under tlie pretence
that they misunderstood the directions of
the passengers, and then refused to bring
them in again unless double rates were
n.iid. Such a kind of a iob as this is little
short of ro' berv-, and it is to be hoped thes
cases which we reter to will be brought be
fore the authorities. A driver who will
undertake such a piece of rascality, will
eventually venture lo do something worse,
and the proper place for him is on tlie reef.
Iu a couple of ill-natured paragraphs in last
Wednesday's Gazette the qualifications of Col.
I u ke'ii, us His Majesty's representative abroa "1,
are called iu question. Inasmuch as the Colonel
is by birth, as veil as by the favor of the King,
fully entitled to bt received ia any Court to
which he may be credited as I lis Majesty's
envoy, and has also had that training in the
Foreign OlUce which will enable him to carry
out Lis instructions intelligently and satisfactor
ily ; and is, besides all this, a jjentlenian in the
best sense of the word, we canuot imagine why
the Guz tte w riter should cavil at his appoint
ment; unless, indeed, the writer is disappointed
iu tn.t being himself selected for the mission.
If such be the cas", wo would say that the para
graphs in question should tlestroy his future
chances, as they show that he la -ks the last
nan ed, but by no means the best qualification
that we have mentioned in connection with the
Soda and other iced drinks are becoming
very popular in Honolulu. Besides a num
ber of ice cream parlors sil ready well
patronized, we learn that several more arc
soon to be opened also. And perhaps, in
view of the natural tendency to use cooling
refreshments in a country where the
climate is warm during the whole year, it
may be well to caution the community
against too great an indulgence in iced
beverages. It is well known that if a person
unduly heated, drinks very cold water in
large quantities, the effect on the human
system is most injurious. There are in
stances on record where the effect iu such
a case has been fatal. An individual in the
habit of imbibing freely of i;.d refresh
ments, is doubtless more liable to sunstroke
also, and, although the sun very seldom
produces such an ellect here, yet it will not
be unwise to forestall any possible conse
quence of the kind. A judicious use of cool
drinks is not to be discouraged, but the
abuse of them, like the abuse of every
thing else, is what should be avoided.
The dilatory manner iu which tlie fire
department turned out on Saturday last
when the fire alarm was sounded, suggests
the idea that there was some misunder
standing about the alarm, and that mauy
thought it was a call to practice, but under
no circumt:inees should it be possible for
any iiiistinde-r.-tanding to arise about a fire,
which might cause a fatal delay. If a
fire should get well started in the middle
or latter pat t of the night, and a high wi nd
prevailed, the llames might easily get
beyond control unless the engines," Lose
carriages, etc., could be rapidly and
promptly drawn to the seat of tlie lire.
Wln-n the lire alarm sounded last Satur
day, it was sonic time before at least some
of the engines were got out at all, and when
finally they were drawn into the streets,
they were pulled along so slowly that it
would apparently have taken half a day to
Xft them to any distant part of the city.
Indeed, one lne cart got fast in a small
rut in the road, and for some time was un
able to proceed.
The generosity of the people of Honolulu
is, orotight to be proverbial. Any one who
is unfortunate and really deserving of aid,
though he be a stranger but just lauded on
our shores, is sure to find friendly assist
ance. In spite of the hurry and apparent
hc-ii -tlessness of business rivalry this com
munity is ccitaiuly ino-t ready to lend a
helping hand to all in need. Only a short
time ago our local columns contained an
a unt of the accidental death of Mr.
Thomas Young, leaving a wife in strait
ened circumstances, ami we recorded in our
iss-ue of the ith instant the donation of the

round sum of five hundred dollars for her
benefit. Prominent among those who
gladly contributed towards raising this
amount were the hardworking mechanics
and 1 lborers connected with the Honolulu
Iron Works. This example is worthy of all
praise and continued imitation. There are
numerous other instances, too, of a more
private, but not a less laudable liberality on
the part of our citizens with which the
community is familiar. Onby a short time
ao v.e know of a young man who ar
rived in our port with but little means,
anil for sonic little time after taking up
his residence here he was unable to
work on account of sickness. His
money was soon exhausted and he had
nothing wherewith to obtain necessary
fod, but he had only just made his condi
tion known, when a gentleman, hearing of
the facts iu refetencc to him, immediately
olTe-red him assistance out of his own
pocket. The gentleman is too modest to
permit his name to be mentioned, but such
an act is worthy of record, and we doubt
not that there are many individuals in this
city who have aided others in similar exi
gencies. Again, men who se-ek employ
ment li ml everyone they meet interested in
lending them assistaiu-e. Mr. J. E. Wise
man has especially exerted himself in
behalf of this class of men, and the Em
ployment Committee of the Y. M. C. A.
have, doubtless, been active in aiding those
in search of work. Altogether, there is
probably no place on the face of the earth
where a broader kindliness is exercised
towards the afllicted and unfortunate, or
towards those who have occasion to solicit
the friendly offices as their fellow man than
The following table, showing tlie date of
the most recent census in the principal
countries of the civilized world, with the
result, may prove useful for future reference.
It will be seen that the annual increase is
higher in the United States than in any
other country, no doubt due to the large
amount of immigration. It is an astonish
ing fact that England ranks third amongst
the twenty countries enumerated, in the
rate of annual increase, notwithstanding
the enormous amount of emigration from
thence. Hungary is lowest in the scale,
and France next :

An article appeared recently in the Ijii
don Medic 'I Journ d entitled the 'Office
of Coroner." Inquisitions into the causes
of uncertified deaths, deaths where there is
a suspicion of non-natural causes, and the
.like, are matters which are worthy of seri
ous consideration, the Journal says, that
whenever the question of an alteration of
the existing law (in England) docs come to
the fore, there will no doubt be a contest
between the legal and medical professions
as to the hands into which the new coroner
ships, or whatever the name of the o.'lice
may be shall fall. ' " Indeed there
is much to be said on the lawyer's side of
the question. The post of coroner is a semi
judicial one; legal is almost as requisite as
medical knowledge on the part of the coro
lier. It is doubtful which is the more de
plorable spectacle in an inquiry of import
ance a legal coroner destitute of medical
knowledge; or a medical coroner all at sea
lor want of the necessary legal knowledge
to conduct a case with dignity. In this
Kingdom, it is the duty, according to the
law for the Marshal, Sheriff, or District Jus
tice to act as Coroner. As it is not incum
bent on any of these parties to possess a pro
found knowledge of the law, or to have in
cluded the study of medicine in the course
of their education, it may be said, that in
the matter of coroners we differ somewhat
from other countries. Certainly, in this
age of progress, our self sufficiency ought
not to prevent us irom looking abroad, and
observing what is done in other countries.
The courses pursued in the United States
and England aiv very much alike, while
France and Germany have systems of in
quisitions of their own, which are said to
be, not iu all respects, adapted to the habits
of the two first named countries. The
French system of inquests is said to be
thoroughly elf-ctive. ' Whilst the direct
ing ami presiding officer is a lawyer, medi
cal testimony is obligatory in every
case; and the interests of the pub
lic and of the medical profession are
sufficiently cared for. Medical testimony
is at once put into formal shape, and that
offered at tne inquest iorms part of the ex
hibits at the trial at assize of sin accused
person. There is, moreover, concert, and
not clashing, between the representatives
of the medical and legal professions."
Throughout the whole thirteen sections of
our Civil Code relating to Inquests, there is
no mention made about medical testimony.
It cannot be denied that, where.available,
the services f a medical gentleman are in
variably called into requisition, but it is
not compulsory according to the existing
The practice, common among certain con
temporaries of "calling names" and using
hart epithets when anything is found that
meets with disapproval, is perhaps, one of
the most ungentlemanly, repulsive and use
less forms of denouncing a person or an act.
It is well enough to use severe terms when
It is shown that they are merited with rea
son, or necessary to guard against some
emergency, but when they are hurled in-discrimina-ely
at everything which excites
envy or begets jealous hate in small, mean
breasts, then harsh words sound more
like the blasphemy and frenzy than
expressions of Christian and rational
tongues. In the United States it is a
noteworthy fact that those journals
which have the most weight and cany
the preponderance of favor with the re
spectable masses, are uniformly calm, dig
nified and not given to mere abuse, even
under the most provoking circumstance-;.
Even in the excitement of a political cam
paign when mo.-t of the prominent journals
of that country usually espouse the cause
of one party in opposition to all others, it
has been found that extreme and violent
terms of denunciation are most harmful to
those who utter them. It is no rare thing
to notice a public journal cautiously avoid
ing even the appearance of severity ami ap
proaching an enemy with bland courtesy,
as if it were desirable to spare all personal
acrimony and even to cultivate personal
friendliness amidst political warfare. This
seems sensible. There can be no contin
gency of circumstances which justifies the
extension of political opposition from the
arena of partisan faith into that degree of
universal bitterness which would terminate
perhaps iu . murder or other personal vio
lence. Seat of tiu: Pakasitks in Lkpkosy on

C'rni and Suchard (.Union dedicate, Sep
tember il', ls.sd,) have published the results
of their researches in regard to the charac
ter and scat of tlie parasite upon which the
pathological processes constituting elephan
tiasis depend. Their investigations were
made i;pon specimens taken from living
leprous patients, and examined before de
i omposition bad begun. They found the
leprous tubercles to consi.-t of an infiltra
tion of the papilla.' and of the cutis vera
with very abundant round, sptieroidal, or
let ticula'r bo. lies, that were hypetrophied
white blood-corpuscles. In the middle of
the tubercles the papilla were indistinct,
while the sweat-glands and hair-follieles
were greatly atrophied. The epidermis was
thinned and smooth. The vascular walls,
were hypcrt roj hied, particularly inJr
intima. With a magnifying potf ofoOO
or l,oo) diameters, small ovo;', of elongated,
highly refractik, rose-colored bodies were
seen in the protoplasm of the hypertro
phied lymphoid cells of specimens colored
with carmine. These are the parasites
associated with leprosy. They may be
studied in a fresh piece of the tubercle,
removed from the living patient and teased
apart in water. They are either spherical
or rod-shaped, and propel themselves in
curved line-. Permanent specimens are
prepared by successively placing thin
sections in a forty per cent, solution of
alcohol, in absolute alcohol, and in a one
and one-half per cent, coloring solution of
methyl-vioUt. The sections are then treat
ed with a one to four per cent, solution of
bicarbonate of sodium, with absolute alco
hol and the oil of cloves, after which they
are preserved in Canada balsam. In suc
cessfully prepared specimens the parasites
in the cells are colored deep blue, while the
protoplasm of the cells and the connective
tissue corpuscles are colorless. Immersion
objectives are preferred for the study of
these specimen-. The rod-shaped parasite
are ai ranged in bundles. This is due. to the
action of the alcohol. The spheroidal para
sites are aggregated or isolated. Very few
parasites are fund outside the cells. The
epidermal cells, although thinned, contain
no parasites, and seem to offer an almost
impenetrable barrier to their progress. The
authors believe tlie slightly contagious
nature of the disease to be referable to this
The above extract from a French medical
journal, showing the results of some
researches of two eminent pathologists as
to the existence ef parasites in lepiosy is
worthy of consideration. It is a theory that
some of our best medical authorities have
long heM, and it is believed that ere many
years, it will become a demonstrated fact
tint this disease is caused by a specific lac

Admiral Farragut's Boyh od
When Adtniral Farragut was a boy he
accompanied his father, who was uu officer
in tlie United States Navy, on a voyage.
He went i s a cabin-boy The little fellow
was a reat favorite with die siilois, and
tbought it manly to imitate their vi cs He
learned to swear and smoke ;,tid drink, and
bee me inexpert in games of chance. In
short, tlie boy was on the road to ruin.
One day his father, who hd been watching
his course, called him into the c .bin and
locked the door. The dmiral tells wh t
followed in his own language :
"David, wh t do you mean to be?"'
asked my father.
I mean to follow the sea."' said I.
Follow the set ? Yes, be a poor, miser
able, druken sailor before the mast, kicked
and cuffed about the world, and d e in some
fever hospital m a foreign dime '
" No," 1 said, "I'll tread the quarter-deck
and command, as you do "
' No David ; no boy ever trod the quarter
deck with such princip'es as you exhibit.
You will have to change the whole course
of your life if you ever become a mm."
My f fier left me and went on deck. I
was stunned by the rebuke and overwhelm
ed with mortification. A poor, miserable,
drunken sailor before the mast, kicked and
cuffed about the werld, and to die in some
fever hospital !" Tint s my fate, is it ? I'll
change my life, and cinnge it t once. 1
will never drink another drop or intoxicating
liquors ; 1 will never gamble. And as God
is my witness, 1 have kept those vuws to
In many households on the islands ants
are a pest. To get rid of them it is recom
mended that a while china pl-ite be thinly
covered wit i common lard and placed on the
shelf or floor wnere the ants do most -bound.
If due care be taken that tlie lard is not
licked off by the pet cat or d g by day. and
greedy rats at night, you wil be pleased with
the results X. 13. Take c re, if the plats
be placed upon the floor, that you do not
step into it.
Moths are also a source of much discom
fort to careful housewives, and many a nice
garment hs been spoiled by them A nice
powder for driving the moth miller away is
made by taking equal quantities of cloves,
carrawiy seeds, nutmeg, cinnamom, mace
and Tonqua be-ns, and :uld as much orris
root as will equal j-11 the other ingredients
put together. Grind all fine, and put in lit
tle bags which should be folded in with the
articles you wish to preserve. Use plenty
of them, and. above all, be sure that there
are no moth eggs in the garments when put
away; as if there is, they will hatch and the
grub will do all the mischief it can in spite
of anything short of . urning the infested
article. While you are preparing the in
gredients you c m, before adding the Tonqua
beans and orris roof, put aside some for
mince pies. No moth was ever known to
eat a mince pie that was well spiced with
the above mixture. Care must be taken,
however, not to leave the pies, when baked
where the children cm get at them. They
are worse than the moths.
It is recommended thl if shot guns be
left around the house that the children be
sent away to a b rding school or the Found
ling Asylum. They may b; ill-used, per
il ips half starved in either place, but they
will keep alive longer, probably, and grow
up without being reminded every now and
then that they only escaped hmg ng for
murder because ' they didn't know it was
Brooms to last long and r tain their use
fulness during their lifetime, have got to be
treated with some regard to the nature of
the material of which they are made. A
Tub may, very properly, be required to
stand on its own bottom, but if the broom
is made to do so, even though it be in the
supporting corner of a room, the straws will
soon " splay ' out, curl up, and lose their
elasticity. If stood up-side down, that is
on the end of the stick, it is always slipping
down and sprawling across the room. The
true plan is to have a pair of small brackets
on the wall, and lay the broom on them.
Another rule to be observed is to turn the
broom around every day when sweeping-.
If this is done the straws will always be in
good shape, and tlie broom will perform the
work for which it is designed.
In Blacking Stoves, we notice, with re-grr-t,
that there is a disposition on the part
of many housewives to neglect the back and
the feet and legs. The srrne carelessness
is observable in other matters. Wives are
apt to Ifave the heels of their husband's
bots unpolished when they blacken them.
This should be corrected.
The tea-table is never so attractive as
when the "tea equipage,' as our grand
mothers used to call it. is presided over by
her who knows just how much sweetness
to put into ones tea, and her own expression,
as she asks you wht is the news down
town?"' Try it, ladies, it d 'csift cost
