1). Westmelt rIvcs nn interesting
account of one of Hawaii's oldest
myths. Kxlracts from this splen
didly written article ate ns follows:
Maui the demi-god was the Her
cules of Polynesia. II is exploits
weie fully ns marvelous as those of
the hero of classic mythology. He
snared the sun. ' He pulled up
Islands from the ocean depths. He
lifted the sky into its present posi
tion and smoothed its arched sur
face w ith his stone adze. These
stories belong to all Polynesia.
The Maoiis of New Zealand say
that Maui could at will change him
self into a bird and with his feath
ered friends find a home in leafy
With the birds ns companions
and the winds as his seivanls Maui
must soon have turned his inven
tive mind to kite making.
Maui after repeated experiments
made a large kite for himself. It
was much larger than any house of
his time or generation. He twisted
a long line from the strong fibers of
the native plant known ns the
oloua. He endowed both kite and
string with marvelous powers and
launched the kite up toward the
clouds. It rose very slowly. The
winds were not lifting it into the
Maui remembered that an old
priest lived in Waipio valley, the
largest and finest valley of the large
island, Hawaii, on which he made
This priest had a covered cala
bash in which he compelled the
winds to hide when he did not wish
them to play on land and sea. The
priest's name was known as Ka
leiioku and his calabash was known
as "ipu-makani-a la maumati."
Maui called to the priest who had
charge of the winds to open
his calabash and let the winds
come up to Hilo and blow along
the Wailuku river on the side of
which Maui stood. The natives
say that the place where Maui stood
was marked by the pressure of his
feet in the lava rocks of the river
bank as he braced himself to hold
the kite against the increasing force
of the winds which pushed it to
wards the sky. Then the enthusi
asm of kite flying filled his youth
ful soul and he cried aloud scream
ing his challenge along the coast of
the sea towards Waipio:
"O winds, winds of Waipio,
In the calabash of Kaleiioku.
Come lrotn the irui-uukani,
O wind, the wind of Hilo,
Come quickly, come with power."
Then the priest lifted the cover
of the calabash of the winds and
let the strong winds of Hilo escape.
Along the the sea coast they rushed
until as they entered Hilo bay they
heard the voice of Maui calling.
With a tumultuous rush the
strong winds turned towards the
mountains. They forced their way
along the gorges and palisades of
the Wailuku river. They leaped
into the hea ens. The kite strug
gled as it was pushed upward by
the hands ol the fierce winds, but
Maui rejoiced. His heart was up
lifted by the joy of the conflict in
which his strength to hold was pit
ted against the power of the winds
to tear her away.
The kite had been made of the
strongest kapa which Maui's mo
ther could prepare. It was not
torn, although it was bent back
ward to its utmost limit. The line
was stretched and strained as the
kite was pushed back. Then Maui
called again and again for stronger
winds to come. The cord was
drawn out until the kite was far
above the mountains. At last it
broke and the kite was tossed over
the craters of the volcanoes to the
laud of the districts of Ka-u on the
other .side of the island.
Then Maui was angry and hastily
leaped over the mountains which
are nearly fourteen thousand feet
in altitude. In a half dozen strides
he had crossed the fifty or sixty
miles from his home to the place
where his kite lay. When Maui
returned with his kite he was more
careful in calling the wind to aid
him in this sport.
Maui would send his kite into
the blue sky and then tie tilt: lino
to tile great black stone in the bed
of the Wailuku river.
Maul soon learned the nower of
his kite when blown upon by a
fierce wind. With his nccustomed
skill he planned to make use of his
strong servant and therefore took
the kite with him on his journeys
to the other islands, using it to aid
in making swift voyages. With
the wind in the right direction the
kite would pull his double canoe
very easily and quickly to its desti
nation. Time passed and even the denii
god died. The fish hook with which
he drew the Hawaiian Islands up
from the depths of the sea was al
lowed to lie on the lava by the
Wailuku river until it became a
part of the stone. The double
canoe was carried lar inland and
then permitted to petrify by the
river side. The two stones which
represent the double canoe now
bear the name "Waa-Kauhi" and
the kite has fallen from the sky far
up on the mountain side, where it
still rests, a flat plot of rich land
between Manna Kca and Manna

Lovo of Country.
In the interior of Japan a young
farmer on the outbreak of the war
was suddenly called to the colors.
Two days preparation was given
him to settle his affairs and to statt
for Tokyo. His wife had a very
young infant. The young mother
was so overcome with grief at this
unexpected news that she fainted
away and within an hour died,
leaving her husband alone with the
new-born babe. What could he do
with it? Who would care for such
a small mite? Feeling that his own
life was forfeit to his country, the
poor man in a frenzy of passionate
grief killed his own child. Of
course the law had to step in and
he had to be tried for murder. A
merciful jury acquitted him on the
ground of emotional insanity.

In his remarkable collecting ex
periment at Vesuvius, Professor
Janssens lowered into the crater a
receptacle that could be opened and
closed whenever desired, by an in
genious nraugement of valves, and
in this way he drew up samples of
gases at different points down to a
great depth. A study of these
gases is expected to throw light on
the emissions from the craters of
Herr Bock of Babcuhauscn, in
Germany, has been carrying on
observations of the humming of
telegraph wires. The humming of
wires running cast and west is said
to pressage a fall of temperature
often ten or more hours in advance
of the thermometer. The hum
ming of wires running,, north and
south advise a rise in temperature
almost always several hours in ad
vance of the thermometer.
