A tourist in Honolulu wishing to
see tltu volcano, hail an experience
that he will not soon forget, accotd
ing to the 1'arailise of the 1'aeific.
"What'll you take me up to the
volcano for?" said a traveller to a
hacktuan, pointing towards Punch
"Go nhe.nl," said the traveller,
jumping into the carriage.
When the summit was reached,
after the long uphill diive, the
stranger asked where the boiling
lava and biimstone was.
"That's in the other volcano; this
is a has been."
"Why did you tell me this was a
volcano?" testily asked the passen
ger. "I beg your pardon, but you
called it a volcano yourself," re
turned the driver.
"I suppose that's another one
over there," .said the traveller, look
ing in the direction of Diamond
Head. "Is there any fire or smoke

"Ah!" exclaimed the passenger,
somewhat crestfallen from showing
his lack of intelligence. "Take me
back to town." And the two drove
down the great hill, without any
further conversation, to the hotel,
where the fare was quietly paid.

Considering the proportions to
which the use of the banana has
attained, it is of importance to settle
not only when it is in Mie best con-
dition for consumption, but also
when it has passed the stage at
which it is fit for human food.
Says the British Medical Journal in
a note on this subject:
In their native countries bananas
are seldom eaten before the skin is
discolored and the pulp of so soft a
consistency that it can be scooped
out with a spoon. Under the arti
ficial conditions in which they are
placed in these clinics .they undergo
somewhat rapid changes, and the
times at which they are best suited
for consumption may be short and
difficult to predict with any degree
of precision. Authorities, how
ever, claim that they are habitually
eaten here before they have reached
their most suitable stage. Before
they are thoroughly matured, more
over, they are apt to be insipid in
flavor and to cause dyspepsia and
other forms of intestinal disturb
ance. They should not be eaten
before the skin is blackened in
places, or when there is any reluct
ance in the skin to separate from
the pulp. Housekeepers know how
bananas will change in the course
of a single night from a manifestly
sound condition to one in which the
skin is blackened and the pulp soft
and slightly discolored. Now,
children infinitely ptefer these last
bananas to those that are apparently
sounder, although their elders may
hesitate to gratify their taste in this
respect from a fear as to the whole-
someness of such fruit. Attacks of
castric or intestinal disturbance
from the use of unsound bananas
are far from common, and it may
well be that in this instance the
natural inclination of the child
covers more wisdom than the cau
tion of its elders in fact, experts
say that the binann, like the med-
Jlar, can hardly be in too ripe a con
dition for eating. With the rapid
changes the fruit undergoes it is
hardly surprising that cases of fric
tion between the sanitary authori
ties and the vendors should be of
frequent occurrence as regards the
fitness, or not, of the fruit for sale

According to a British statis
tician, the increase in the number
of golfers is piocecdiug at an amaz
ing rale, notwithstanding the com
monly recognized fascinations of the
game. The latest census of golf
clubs show that there arc at present
879 of them in Knglaud alone. The
United States comes second with
769, and Scotland N now relegated
to third place with 682. In Ire
land there arc 134, and in Wales
43. Canada possesses the same
number as the principality, in In-'
dia there are 37, in Australia 35 in
New Zealand 34 and in South
Africa 20. At different places on
on the continent there arc 69, and
there is every indication that be
fore very long Prance will get the

there are four clubs, and Japan
evinces one more tendency toward

down roughly at 3,000. The aver
age membership of these clubs may
fairly be reckoned at 200 each,
giving a total of 600,000. Then
there are undoubtedly many thou
sands of unattached golfers, so that
the entire population of the golfing
world cannot be very far short of
three-quarters of a million. What
with subscriptions, extra green fees
periodical purchases of clubs and
balls, it is in the highest degree un
likely that these golfers spend less
than $50 a year each on the game
they love .so well, .so that on this
estimate, which can err only on
moderation, a sum of $37,500,000
is spent in every twelve months by
the people who play golf.

Ilvport Hall Makes Timely Itei-oi'u-memlutlons.
Bulletin No. 48, of the Bureau of
Forestry, has just been issiol un-
tier the title of The Forests of the
Hawaiian Islands, written by
William I. Hall. The pamphlet
contains 29 pages of text and illu
strations. Coming from such a
high authoiity as Mr. Hall, the
work is worthy of careful conside
ration. One point made by the
writer which has not been given
much thought by local capitalists
is the cutting of the fine ko.i trees
on Hawaii forcouimercial purposes.
He says: "As soon as practicable,
an examination should be made of
the koa forest on the east slopes of
Mauna Kea and Manna Loa, to
determine whether or not it is feas
ible to build a road to it and locate
a sawmill in it for the purpose of
lumbering the mature trees. Some
of the koa is without doubt very
fine, and would form a source of
revenue to the Territory, to which
it belongs, if it could be got out
without great expense. The law
provides that any moneys which
shall accrue from such products
shall be held available as a special
fund for the preservation, exten
sion, and utilization ol forests and
forest reserves, in the same manner
! as moneys appropriated by the
legislature. This makes it desir
able as soon as possible to make
the forest revenue producing, so far
as this is compatible with its pre
servation for other useful purposes.
It is believed that the situation and
composition of the koa forest is such
that the removal of the mature trees
could be accomplished without
d.unage either to reproduction or to
