Considering the extensive use of
Kerosene in this country it has, un
til lately, been a matter of surprise to
u& that we have heard of no accidents
through its use. Our surprise was
dissipated the other day by seeing
the Deputy Marshal testing samples
of oil about to be shipped to this
country, if it passed the examination.
The law requires the oil sold hero to
be of such a quality that it will not
Hash under 100 c . In order to en
sure that none is sold under this
quality, Mr. Day.lon has taken upou
himself the trouble to test samples
of all the oil imported here. -The
proeesss is very interesting. An in
genious contrivance has been invent
ed for doing it: A little copper
stand contains a place for a little
hpiiit lamp. Above this is a tccep
laelo for water. Into this a cup
shaped receptacle, for the oil to be
tested, fits. This is open at the top
so that the surface of the oil is ex
posed to the air. On one side a little
thermometer with its bulb in the oil
is lixeil, aud on the other a little
burner with a tiny wick. This is
lighted, being fed by the ..oil, and
burns during the whole of the ex
periment. The spirit lamp heats the water,
' which in its turn heals the oil evenly
throughout, and the thermometer
gradually rises showing the incieasc
in temperature. If the oil is of good
quality it will show much above
10fl before a flash is seen from the
little burner to the surfuce of the
oil. As the heat grows greater the
Hushes become more frequent, until
finally the whole surface of the oil
takes fire.' If the oil is of standard
quality the fust flash is observable
at a tempeiature of 101). If it
Hashes below that temperature the
law forbids ils sale.
. This test is made so that the oil
sold will be sib free as possible from
the chance of exploding.
"The Anglic ait church
hab reached its fifth number, which
now lies before us. Vc have said
befoic that each issue so far has
ben an improvement on its prede
' e'essor. This month's is no excep
tion. From beginning to end the
whole is interesting and readable.
The opening article, entitled,
,' Easter Thoughts," is pregnant
,;with argument for those half-scientists
of the present day who can be
lieve nothing but what is to be found
in a school or college text-book on
Science. It seems to us that of late
there has been a revulsion against
such foolish wisdom, and thisurticlc
will go far to aid that revulsion.
,Next comes a very sensible article
on the amusements which should be
provided for young men. The writer
1ms been- prompted to say a few
Avoids on'tlie subject owing to Mr.
Crnzan'b sermons and an address
given befoic tho Y. M. C. A. by Mr.
Forbes. He acknowledges that Mr.
Crussau has exhaustively answered
tho question, but he certainly seems
o think that the proposed Y. M. C.
A. forms of amusement would fail
iii their purpose and we agree witli
him. He goes on to give his own
experience,' which maybe summed
up in ouo sentence, " visit tho young
men ill their own homes."
The remainder of the issue con-
tijius many articles which we haven't
apace to notice. A c must mention
our gladness in noticing the truly
Catholic hpiiit displayed throughout.

Ox Saturday the Captain and
oflleers of the Nujiesdnik were
presented to His Majesty.

It is easy to see that the Bulle
tin is well and carefully " read in the
offico of the tut unlay lress. Wc
arc glad of it.
The Nuuami Grocery deserves a
visit from our readers for its npat
ness. They will find it abovo Bere
AVk noticed on Saturday that
drays had been driven over the new
sidewalks of Queen street. This
ought to be put, u slop to.
Tin: Old Testament company lias
completed its second revision. The
revisers have sat seventy-eight times
Anyli:an Church Chronicle.
Till: Chinese passengers by the
Oceanic, now in quarantine, will be
released this morning ut 1) o'clock,
if tho medical inspection warrants it.
"Why doesn't 'the Hoad Supervi
sor put on the btciim roller on the
newly-metalled portion of Queen
street? The very air is already
blasphemous in tho neighborhood.
Ox Saturday afternoon an alarm
of (ho was given, but most people
thought it was a practice signal. It
was in tho houso of a native called
Kealakai, on Merchant street, near
the corner of Alaken. ,Jt was soon
put out with but slight damage.
Tin: 24 German prisoners, from
Kilauca Plantation, were released
on Saturday on a bail bond gener
ously furnished by Mr. 'Widumanii.
They will bo brought up at the
Police Court at JJ o'clock this after
noon. ' ' i
Ox Friday morning a dispute oc-
euricd between two Chinamen at the
Quarantine (Jiounds about soine
food. Ouo was a Httkka and the
other a Punti, so very soon the
members of both tribes were engag
ed in a free fight. It was quelled
before serious dnmagc was done.
Ox Friday afternoon a native boy
whipped up ,1ns horse and, drove
furiously along Brrctniiia street und
up Emma street. On this occasion
there was no' necessity to a'sk wlferc
were tlic police, for there were no
less than two of them there calmly
Ilmti: is a good suggestion for
beautifying the city. Let every
resident on King street ami Bere-
tunia street plant; in their owu lot,
Koyal Palms at regular intervals.
These streets would shortly bo the
most beautiful avenues in the world.
Tin: total number of Chinese in
quarantine is 523. Of these about
300 arc Ilakka and about 200 Punti.
We believe, with the exception of a
few returning hero after a visit to
China, that they have all been im
ported by Chinese firms, 140 to one
firm, 40 to another, and soon, for
work in the rice, &c., plantations.
IIckk is the latest addition to the
Jiluc Jiibbou lirhjadc. Messrs. G .
W. Naefarlane & Co. have received
a new brand of Champagne. "The
Bell of Moscow." It has a little
model of the bell attached by
a blue rib Don to tlic neck of. eacli
bottle. A larger, model of thjs sanie
celebrated bell forms a neat and
handy ice pail.
It has been pointed out to us that
the Koyal Hawaiian Agricultural
Society in their published Prize list
have made no provision 'for reward
ing one very important industry in
the islands the raising of bananas
for food and export. Probably now
that the omission is pointed out they
will rectify it.
We have received a copy of the
list of Hawaiian Slock quotations
for March prepared by Mr. W. O.
Smith, stock broker, from which we
gather that thcr.e has bc.cn, little or
no increase in the prices paid for
different stock during the past
month. A uscful'fcature has been
added iu the shape of a list of divi
dends for the past five months.
"Vi: lc'arn that Col. Cv P. Iaukea
is to be sent on a special and secret
mission by the steamer. Mr. II.
Poor accompanies him as Secretary.
It is whispered that' they are going
to Russia to be present at the Coro
nation. It is to be hoped that they
will not return in fragments caused
by dynamite intended for the Czar
of all the Russias.
Ox Ssaturday we accidentally
saw a Pound Notice afiixed to a
fence on Queen street. This is tho
first time wo have seen one since
our arrival in this country. It was
in a remarkably inconspicuous posi
tion, ontl very few would probnbly
notice it, 39 tlat tlipjequiroments
