( Parly rrom Honolulu Hnro n Sptvii
A party of ten left Honolulu the
23d bound for the vnlcatio of Kil
auea. The good steamer Kiuatt
brought us safely to Hilo, where we j
spent tlie night, leaving for the vol
cano early Thursday morning. Ar
riving at Mountain View, the rail
way terminus, we were transferred
to stages, and were soon jogging
along through tropical forests, cane
fields, etc. We hailed with delight
the first glimpse of the hotel. Soon
we were brought up at the steps,
and we were glad to be at our jour
ney's end, especially so near the
After being assigned our rooms
the joyful sound of the dinner bell
brought us to the dining room,
where a generous repast awaited us.
After satisfying the inner man
I the next important topic was when
1 to visit Madam Pele and pay our re
spects to this wonderful being.
We decided to go down to th crater
so as to be able to see it both by day
and by night. At 3:30 we were
mounted on sure-footed horses and
began our descent of five hundred
feet to the lava bed, down a wind
ing path, ferns, trees and flowering
shrubs on either side to make the
trip intetesting. We soon reached
the lava, and then a mile and a half
we rode single file over a vast sea
of lava, a most interesting sight,
seeing the different formations of
lava and picking out weird shapes
it had taken in its mad race for
supremacy as it boiled and bubbled,
piling up mounds as it went. Here
and there along the path were cracks
where the hot steam issued, telling
you life in the depths was not ex
tinct. We reached the corral, where the
horses were tied, atid then we pro
ceeded to visit the various points of
interest Madam Pele's kitchen,
where the steam came rolling up in
such volume we passed on, being
convinced she had a good fire. We
then visited the reception room.
You descend a ladder about fifteen
feet to a cave; here you take lighted
candles and go about fifty yards into
a cavern, gathering the curls from
the ceiling. We were glad to get
in the sunlight once more.
At last we were on our way to
the crater1, and we had a fine view
of the fire fountain, shooting up
fire and continually moving. After
watching the sights for an hour we
adjourned to the hot cracks for
lunch, which weeujoyed immensely,
most of us seeing for the first time
tea, coffee and bacon cooked over
nature's own range.
Otic more look at the crater by
night. We sat aud watched the
lava boil aud bubble, turn and tum
ble, until almost midnight, never
ceasing in its restless tossing like
the great ocean breaking on the
sands. We arrived home tired but
well repaid, aud felt our Christmas
had been well spent.
Christmas morning we were
rested and ready for a good time.
From all over the house could be
heard merry greetings being ex
changed. The house was resplen
dent in the festive colors, red and
green. As we entered the reception
room directly in front of us were
the words, "Aloha Nui," the native
greeting; over the arch, "Merry
Christmas," aud a green wreath
tied with red ribbon over each pic
ture; the mantle and fire place was
banked with green; in the parlor
over the folding door hung an im
mense wreath of green; on the arch
in the bay window, clasped in the
lace curtain, were red flowers on a
1 green vine; from the ceiling from
I the four corners to the center of the
j room were red aud green belts hang

tcenter; a large red crepe paper

j piano was a large bunch ot ferns
and red aud white berries; the man

ferns, aud the whole effect was ex
At 6:30 our genial host, Mr. Bid
good, threw wide the folding doors
leading into the dining room, aud
such a blaze of dazzling light met
our gaze. Before us was a Christ
mas tree decked in all that is dear
to a child's heart; tiny caudles
gleamed from nearly every branch.
From the ceiling were ropes of red
aud white berries festooned from
the corners to the center of the
room, forming a hollow square, and
here were long loops from one rope
to the other; green and red were
the prevailing colors; large wreaths
over the door aud the sideboard
banked with green aud red, and the
table that is something to remem
ber; the table was a large square;
in the center was the Christmas
cake, with a bunch of holly on top;
around the cake was banked grccu,
dotted with red Lcihua blossoms,
extending to the four corners of the
tabic; four miniature Christmas
trees trimed with tinsel occupied a
place near the cake; tlje plate cards
were red aud grccu bells tied with
red ribbons, and a picture of the
Volcano House on each 011c. Need
less to say, we enjoyed the dinner.
With Manager Bidgood's reputa
tion we could not do otherwise with
all the bounties he had provided
for his guests.
Next came the tree and it af
forded the company much amuse
ment, as the names James or Bessie,
as the case might be, were called
to come forward and receive from
Santa Claus a toy aud stocking of
candy. We thoroughly enjoyed
the fun, and it took us back to the
good old days of our childhood,
when the Christmas tree was the
coming event in our lives.
Presently we heard the soft,
plaintive native music, and coming
into the parlor we were entertained
for an hour with a native trio.
Then we adjourned to tho spa
cious lounging room, with its in
viting fire place. The room was
fragrant with maile. green wreaths
on the wall, making Christmas
cheer everywhere. We told stories,
conundrums aud jokes until a late
hour. Before retiring we all ex
tended a hearty vote ol thanks to
Mr. and Mrs. Bidgood for their
untiring efforts in making the day
pass so pleasantly.
