WHAT HAWAII NEEDS NOW.
We have got a swift steamer cpn
lil. of making tho passage regulnily
bitwccii ban Kianeisuo ami Honolu
lu in six dns each way perhaps in
live and a half. Shu lias mudu her
tir.Ht trip in o days iHU hours. In a
low shoit months' her sister steamer
will be ready and we shall havu r.
The l M. S. S. Go's boats al
ready inn once a month making the
mssago in' from (! to 7 days. And
some time ago it was talked of run
ning this line also fortnightly.
Willi these exceptionally excellent
facilities for communication we shall
not only bo drawn in closer bonds of
union with our great neighbour in
regard to trade and interchange of
products, but we shall have a larger
iullux of population.
Every steamer will bring its load
of tourists to spend money in these
islands. Shiny of tliem, at ti acted by
our delightful climate and comfort
able habits, will stay. What accom
modations have we to olfer ilium ?
Where are thu conveniences, com
forts, and amusements that they
have a light to expect? How are
our facilities for inter-island travel ?
Our Hotels V Our Concert Halls ?
Our Theatres ?
Save in Honolulu alone, tuese
exist in the imagination only ; and
even here in not as good a shape us
they must be if wo arc to derive any
benefit from pleasure-seeking immi
grants. Who would come to sec
these islands in discomfort and yet
for people who know no one here
and have no letters of introduction
what provision is there?
A CHARMING CAT.
A lady residing in the suburbs of
Honolulu has a cat. There is noth
ing strange in this fact; formally
other ladies, similarly located, have
cats also. But this particular cat is
an unusually large, black, sleek,
handsome creature, of the masculine
gender, and is the admiration of cat
J'ancicrs. Tom for that is his
name appears to belong to the
" upper order " of the feline species,
being "very select" in the choice
of associates and somewhat fasti
dious in his gastronomic tastes,
mingling only with the creme de la
creiile of cat society, having a de
cided preference for such edible
delicacies as niircons. turtle doves.
and linnets, and showing a strong
aversion to sucn common sustenance
as boiled beef and raw rat's llesh.
Although an iuiGtocrul,"Tom if. not
an indolent cat, but occupies much
of' his time in catching, killing, and
eating linnets, pigeons, mid turtle
doves. There is nothing peculiar in
his manner of killing and eating,
unless it be the fact that he con
sumes certain portions only of each
bird and rejects the remainder. But
his method of getting the little
winged creatures into his power is
what is new ami novel, nt least to
the writer. Tom does not, like cats
in general, stealthily approach the
object of his desire, and when near
enough make a sudden spring and
seize his prey ; but, having singled
out a certain bird, ho quietly takes
up a position as close as he con
veniently can without causing alarm,
and fixes his two great fierce eyes
with an intent gaze, until the bird
trembles, flutters its wings, and falU
powerless to the ground charmed,
mesmerized, or whatever else you
like to call it. His catship thcu
leisurely takes hold of the helpless
creature, dispatches its life, and
makes his meal.
The lady above referred to, who
has closely watched and carefully
btudicd the habits and iuocineiite
of her pet cat, testifies to the truth
of the fore-going statement, that
her cut catches birds by charming
them. It is generally known that
snakes charm birds, but are cats
supposed u possess the same
