'"At lunch we eat the last of the
poi .which Mr. Dean had kindly sent
roe at Honolulu, nnd which had
been kept fresh in the ice-chest. I
like this Hawaiian national dish when
it is in good condition. 1 am assur
ed that it is a very healthy nrticlc of
diet. Tho nativca live nnd thrive on
it, but the true p6l-cater likes it
"high," when the process of decay
has succeeded that of fermentation,
and wlfcn the untrained nostrils arc
offended at tho .odour. But your
gourmand of "game in Great Britain
possesses exactly the same taste.
Putrid flesh, is savoury to him, ail
putrid vegetable extract is to the
Hawaiian. It is one of the ambitions
of my life to eat poi like a truo na
tiveto sit around a calabash, to
dip my two first fingers into,. the
gruelly gclatihqui looking,8ubstance,
to', twirl them round 'as one docs a
spoon in'ttiev"m61n8SCB pitcher," and
then adroitly hoist and transfer a
streamy portion of poi into my
mouth. That is ,the real way to cat
it. That is' the way 1 once tried to
do it. Tho result tho stuff went
into my eyes, nose, cars, down my
neck, everywhere except into the
proper receptacle. I eat poi, with a
silver spoon now, but" still 'nourish
the .thought that some day I may
Old Eph Sewell, who as a snake
charmer used to.be one of the attrac
tions of Barnuro's museum, related
to a New York reporter the incidents
of a famous fight He oucc had with n
boa constrictor. 'Eph had I charge of
a cage of reptiles, and used to go
into the cage and lie down with the
snakes. He said :
" On one occasion I introduced
myself to tho largest boa constric
tor ever brought to this country.
He was eighteen feet in length, and
weighed over three':hundrcd pounsp.
tie hart been in the country no
weeks, and Barnura was obliged to
pay a good price for him. When I
went into the cage I saw that he had
become v monarch of the concern.
The remaining unnkcs were an, sub
missive as mice, and .when they
crawled over to meet me his lord
ship, looked wicked. I caught Jiim
in hiy aVras, and. ho reared his' ncad
until it rested upon my left shoul
der. Lifting him as muclyaa possi
ble, I passed him around my body,
and he apparently imagined that he
was embracing a tree in his native
HMO 1U kl MWIUC U.UVV J
jungle., Heightened :
a 'feeling like I was beii
Ins coil, and
being slowly snf-
focated came over' me. Quicker
than a flash J caught him back of
his bead, and by a desperate effort
wrenched myself free. Then we
both got angry. The boa came to
wards me, and I caught him by the
throat. I was strong enough to
hold him at arm's-length despite his
struggles, and. in a few moments he
gave up the 'fight and related .his
coils. Then I ,shook him until he
was thoroughjyjj alarmcd,naj)d: vcr
afterward ho"was submissive. Had
I permitted 'his coils, to close about
me, no earthly agency could havo
saved me." ' '
AvNew Gas L?0HT.-rIn the' pres
ence of the reporters and two medi
cal gentlemen, Mr.Bennio, of Maori
Hill, Duncdin, gave an cxhibitfon of
the light capabilities of his new gas,
for which he has now taken out
patents in Australia and New Zea
land, ftnd.hattCBoldbe;formej.( The
gas is manufactured out of air,
water, and ordinary beef, or mutton
fat. He. has had it burning in his
rivate house for 12 months. The
ight is pure, clear, and white, and
more powerful than that of tho
Dunedin gas! It hOHno 'smell." The
cost, is very small, running from 1b
