A MERRYurCHniSTMASZiTO ALL.
;i('lii is tho day chosen by Chris
tendom to celebrate a great event
tho birth of Jesus Christ. Whether
tho 2.)lh of Dccqmbcr bo precisely
the day on which the event occurred
is a matter of small importance: the
fact that such an event did occur,
nearly' nineteen centuries ago, is
recognized throughout the Christian
world. Sacred historians record
that the announcement was made by
an Angel from heaven, in these
words, " Behold, I bring you good
tidings of great joy, which shall be
to all people. Unto you is born
this day, n Saviour, which is Christ
the Lord." And tho Angel and his
attendants sang, " Glory to God in
tho highest, and on earth peace,
good will toward men."
Since then many years and many
centuries have rolled round, and
many generations of mortals have
appeared and vanished, but wc, the
living of to-day, follow in the wake
of our foro-fatherd in the commemo
ration of that birth over which the
Angels rejoiced. To patrons and
non-patrons, to friends and strangers,
to all, wo say from our inmost
nature, wc wisli you great joy, true
peace, and unalloyed happiness.
Let feuds and ungenerous senti
ments and hard words be dissolved
in feelings and wishes of kindness
and good will.
CHRISTMAS TREE AT THE
At half-past six all the little ones
with their parents and a number of
friends of all nationalities had as
sembled in tho rooms below tho
Church. Tho rooms wcro hand
somely decorated witli ferns and
flowers and texts in Chinese and
English, also a number of cards as
memory aids to scenes in the life of
our Lord. In tho end of the room,
nt the back, stood the Christinas
tree and tables, covered with good
things to cat. Tho tree was hand
somely decorated with bundles of
mandarin oranges, and ropes of
popcorn and tinfoil.
After preliminary exercises show
ing great proficiency in the scholars
in reading, recitation, and singing,
Prof. F. Damon made his maiden
public speech in Chinese which was
thoroughly understood and appre
ciated. The distribution of gifts
then took place and the little ones
were soon loaded with toys, candy
and pictures. The guests departed
His Majesty and Mr. Gibson were
both present and greatly interested.
Mr. Goo Kim also showed himself
to the van of those aidiug in the
good cause. A Chinese school has
licen started for girls which is quite
a new departure in Chinese custom.
Miss Payson and Miss Clench the
two English teachers and Mr F
)amon arc to be congratulated on
the success of their work so far.
It was a happy thought on tho
part of the Library Association to
celebrate the Christmas season by
tho presentation of Dickon's celo
hratcd " Carol." This gem of
inine;lcd humor and pathos has fairly
attained the position of a "classic."
It was well rendered to an apprecia
tive audience on Friday evening last
by ladies and gentlemen whose
talents arc well-known in our com
munity. The music furnished for
the occasion by the Amateur Quin
tette Club was of unusual excel
lence. The audience, though not
quite, as large as at some former en
tertainment given by tho same As
bbciation. was very satisfactory con
sidering tho multiplicity of other
festivities both publio and private
which occurred on tiiesamo even
ing and the threatening weather
about 7 o'clock.

IN MEM PRIAM.
THE LATE WILLIAM. AUSTIN.
The sad accident which ter
minated the earthly existence
of the late Mi:. William Austin-,
cut short a useful life in
the vinor of health and the
prime of manhood, and de
prived Hawaii of ono of her
noblest sons. He was a native
by birth, of mixed parentage,

was principal Government Car
penter. Mostof our wharves ,uid
many other publio structures
wore planned by his brain and
constructed by his hand. At
the time of his deatli lie was a
member of tho Fire Dcpart-
jj ment, a member of tho Knights
of Pythias, and Captain of the
Lclciohoku Guards. To the
public he was known as a man
of untiring industry, faithful
and skilful in tho performance
of his duties. His friends and
close acquaintances recognized
in him a man of unsurpassed
integrity, honor, and gener
osity. These sterling heart
qualities ho possessed to a
greater degree than the aver
age of men. One so thorough
ly unselfish, and so ready at
all times to do anything and
a everything in Ins power to pro
la innt.p. tho lmiminQsq of others.
can rarely bo found. This is
the heart-felt testimony of one
who knew him long and well,
and feels his loss as the loss of
a brother. His untimely death
makes a blank, in a sorrowing
family, a large social circle,
and tho public service, that can
not be filled.
Took place yesterday afternoon
nt 4 o'clock, at his late resi
dence, his remains being de
posited in tho family vault on
the premises. In addition to
the various -companies of fire
men, the Knights of Pythias,
the military, squad of police,
'and a very large concourse of
people both native and foreign
assembled to pay their last
tribute of respect to the depart
ed. The I?cv. II. Parker read
tho service for the dead, and de
livered an impressive address,
eulogistic of the deceased and
H consolatory to the sorrowing rc-
'"! latives. I he Iviughls of Pyth
ias also recited their solemn
and beautiful burial ceremony.
The collin was then placed in
the tomb, and three volleys of
musketry discharged by his old
comrades in arms. The whole
9 scene was rendered doubly sol-
la cmn and inipressivo by the plain
tive strains or the Royal Ha
waiian Hand, which was in at
tendance, under tho leadership
fj of Professor II. IJcrger.

Two of them met and without warn

that for?" said he. "You havo
been saying so-and-so about me I"
"Well, it that's all, I'm not going
to wear tins about town for no
thing!" So he reached out and pick
ed up a piece of batten and hit the
other a blow across the side of the
face. After a few moments of
silence on both sides a mutual
"come and take a drink" was heard,
and they adjourned.
