THE KING OF THE SANDWICH ISLANDS.
His Majesty, Kulnknim 1, of Ha
waii, appears disposed to innko n
stir cic long. Through Iiis Minis
tcis, iv cliiiin has been set tip fqr
sovereignty over all the uiuinnexud
islands of the l'ncillo, he being the
only sovereign in this direction. It
is not likely that the modest pro
posal will have much effect, although
it appears a "great ofllcer of state"
has gone forth from Hawaii with a
Hag and instructions to annex all
the islands he comes across, after
the style of recent annexation pro
ceedings from Queensland. How
the little kingdom of his majesty
could hold the islands supposing he
had them is a problem, for the solu
tion of which there is neither men
nor money available in his domi
nions. Possibly ho might arrange
with a syndicate. But, at present,
ho has more territory now than peo
ple to occupy it profitably ; for the
islanders, through leprosy and other
scourges, arc dying out rapidly.

A TARCEDY THAT MADE A CEMETERY.
The Baltimore Green Mountain
cemetery lias a most romantic his
tosy. Fifty years ago it was thu
happy homo of the Oliver family,
which consisted of the father and
two children, son and daughter.
The daughter, who was a beautiful
girl, had many suitors, but to all did
she nay, save one, a poor young
man of whomc her father disapprov
ed, and whomc he had forbidden to
bee. He had also taken an oath that
if he caught the young man on the
grounds he would shoot him. But
true love not onlg laughs at bolt and
bars, but at shotgun as well. One
evening the young lady, having
jiggrcccl to meet her lover at the foot
of the lane, donned a suit of her
brother's clothes, hoping thereby to
esdape detection, and sallied forth.
Her keen-eyed father caiiajht sight of
her as she marched boldly along,
and thinking he recognized in the
trespasser the young man who had
been forbidden the grounds raised
his gun and iirad. The feminine
shriek which pierced the air revealed
to him what he had done. II is
daughter was dead before he reached
her side, and from that day the
wretched father became a wanderer
upon the face af the earth. He took
his son and went abroad, leaving his
bes property in the hands of an
agent with orders to sell the home
stead for a cemetery. In a short
time the city purchased the grounds,
and the body of the murdered girl
was the lii&t one to be buried there.

NOT SUCH A FOOL.
The mysteries or feminine costume
have ever been held to be a scaled
book to long-suffering men. But
one of the sterner sex recently played
off an innocence of those matters
upon the woman whom he had sworn
to love, honour, and cherish, in a
style that was just a trille too thin.
The poor lady had expressed
an ardent desire for eightheen-but-ton-crushed-strawberries
her Gup dress, and the guileless
youth had responded to her desire

Geoige and George on his way home
the following evening. The "horror
and amaze" of the good woman on
receiving at the hands of a messen
ger a note saying that her lord and
master had gone to the "club" with
a packet containing a dozen and a
half buttons of the fashionable colour,
instead of the gloves for which her
spirit yearned, may be more easily
imagined than described. "I knew
lie wns'ft fool, but I didn't think ho
was such a fool ns all that!" she tear

visitor. "She took mo for a flat, but
I'in not quite such a fool as I look ! ' '
