FK1DAY. MAY 10, 1884.
Prince Lunalilo, was of the
ancient race of island-chieftains,
an alii or vmi of thai
line so dear to the hearts of
Ilawaiians. Those high-chiefs
of Hawaii were a strange,
stupendous species, seemingly
especially bred and set apart
for rulers and to he held as
by the islanders.
in wit lie and
wrack-thatched cottages ;
dressed in the royal yellow
cloaks (more precious than
robes of imperial purple in
their people's eyes) made of
the plumage of a small, black
bird the u or oo found only
on one of the islands, under
each wing of which grew a
single golden feather, which
was eagerly plucked and ap
propriated to that regal pur
pose ; slept on thick mats of
softest sea-birds' down ; dined
off the mellowest fruits and
mealiest roots in sumptuous
splendor ; drank liberally of
u or betel-brandy (native old
rye, made by being chewed
into sweet pulp in the mouths
of dusky maidens) ; spat their
saliva into round, holloAV
stumps, closely studded with
human teeth by way of orna
ment; submitted themselves
daily to the pleasant,
salubrious process of lomi-lomi
(kneading the body by the
hands of a young women) ,
in order to render pliable their
idle, over-burdened muscles ;
were pushed about in the luke
warm waves by active swim
mers ; flirted to their souls'
content with gentle com
pliant, olive-skinned, oriental
eyed native beauties; day
dreamed to the dulcet music
of the nose-flute three
stringed lute or shark-skin
fom-tom; angled by torchlight
in canoes at night; lounged
luxuriously whenever lazily
inclined (and that no seldom) ;
were fanned at noontide with
plumes of brilliant hue by
chosen serfs ; and, one may
safely say, reveled life away
cheerfully in a general round
of perpetual pastimes or rest
ful repose most gracefully.
Under this indolent and in
dulgent process, however
grateful, the lords of Hawaii
naturally grew unwieldy and
obese, though grand; trans
mitting to their patrician
posterity magnificent phy
siques, gigantic stature, rude,
robust health and the un
bounded capability (and op
portunity) of wholesome,
wholesale happiness in their
sensuous Eden in an animal
island-way. The enjoyment
of mundane delights was their
constant and only employ
ment. And to them belonged
the innocence oi
in all its fulness, truly."
