My clear Teddy,
I meant writing to you last
mail, but the finding l)f the
Naval Court in the Iknning
tou matter, so upset me, that I had
not the courage to touch a pen.
It is awful to think that one of
our own countrymen, an American
born and bred, should shut off the
steam gauge from n boiler, and then
shove in coal. It is not credible,
and sometimes I think that the
man who did such a thing, must
have been a nihilist or a Christian
1 don't like to think of it, but I
believe we should have only Chi
nese and Japs in the stoke hole.
There would be no danger of any
of the boys shutting off steam gau
ges, or letting boilers running dry.
They attend too well to the little
details in all work they undertake.
This makes me think of the dar
key firing a river steamboat. The
captain came down into the engine
room, and looking up at the gauge
saw only to lbs of steam register
ed. He sajlcd in for that darkey.
"Hold on boss," says the latter,
after the captain took a scat, "that
ere needle am gone around twice."
The captain lit out at full speed.
It is bad enough to be killed in ac
tion, but I cannot find words ex
pressive enough to deplore the in
glorious death and untold sufferings
of the victims of this unconceiva
To get away from this subject, I
want to call your attention, old
chap, to some of the members of
your Philippine Public Instruction
I wish you would whisper into
the cars of one or two of them, not
to blow their nose in their fingers
nor put their knives in their mouths
It is not "comme il faut." It
makes me frightfully nervous to
to see a man thrusting a knife in
his mouth, and the Filipino
students arc apt to copy this bar
You know, Teddy, we are a gen
telmau Nation among Nations, and
we should at least show some sort
of consideration for the feelings of
our lellow passengers, even it we
have little or none for ourselves.
A stupid Englishman, sitting
next to me at the table d'Hotc, to
whom I referred the subject of
swallowing knives, told me that
this habit was probably the reason
why American table knives were
never made sharp.
I felt like But what was the
use of having a row. You attend
to that, old man, and I will rest

We are forging a head in this
little country, though a good many
blacksmiths have been knocked
out by the recent law obliging
everyone who desires to shoe a
horse, to get out a license. I think
it is a good idea. The most curious
feature about the law is that a man
must shoe a horse in one and one
half minutes. When a kicking
mule comes in to the shop, it makes
no difference. Time is money.
Sheep shearers have to pass an
exam as well and I am glad of that,
for I have seen some fellows take
the hide and wool together, more
times than was necessary, and when
the sheep had passed the tar pot,
it looked more like a leopard.
I believe fellows who milk cows
should have a license as well.
Many a valuable cow has been
ruined by poor milking.
Now don't you go and pass on
this law as being unconstitutional
for, if you do, there arc a couple of
chaps in Honolulu and Hilo who
will feel quite bad over it.

Odd Hooks at Auction.
The chief attraction atSothctby's
auction rooms recently in London,
was an old Bible, containing the
signature "William Shakespeare,
1614," on the reverse of the title to
the New Testament, and again on
the end cover "William Shakes
perc, of S. O. A. (Stratford-on-A-von),
his Bible, 1613.". This vol
ume was discovered near Manches
ter about 1850 by the late owner's
grandfather, William Sharp, a well
known collector of old books and
prints. The discovery aroused
great interest at the time. Mr. Sharp
only gave a few dollars for the book,
but before long he was offered, but
refused, as much as .150. Be
sides the signature of Shakespeare
there is also the following inscrip
tion: "John Fox off Warwick was
the owner of this Bible A. D. 1633."
This inscription is important, as it
locates the book as being in Shakes
peare's county only seventeen
years after his death. From Fox
it passed into the hands of the
Bradshaw family, and there are en
tries relating to them. Then Tho
mas Hall became the owner, and
there is an inscription, "Thomas
Hall is the true owner off this Bi
ble Anno 1727," and also an in
scription of James Hall, 1743.
These signatures are of great im
portance, for Shakespeare's daugh
ter married a John Hall. There
arc only about six signatures of the
poet in existence, and some years
ago a Chicago millionaire offered
,20,000 for one that was really
genuine This volume realized
,210, and it is understood that
it went to America.

will relieve the patient before a doc
