Utilitarians1 of the more sordid
sort aro apt to rail at modern pro
gress in tho Gne arts as a symptom
of degeneration. They draw infer
ences prejudicial to high refinement
from the fact that art flourished
most in ancient empires when tho
bases of political and social order
were crumbling away. Decay, they
are ready to say, must needs have
lupcrvened in modern nations when
they have passed that point in mate
rial prosperity, when they can afford
to expend wealth in nurturing those
who minister lo the finer feelings of
the mind and imagination. A higher
respect of utility, however, presents
the claims of man's finer faculties ns
, being at least equally worthy of re
cognition with thot of bis material
necessities. Those who arc able to
help sustain the flue arts, as well as
those who can only afford to admire
them, have not the patience to argue
out the point with those who have
no soul above food, drink, raiment,
and the money they may accumulate
after those things arc procured.
There is a. material utility in tho fine
arts, however, which their advocates
find more serviceable in defence
against tlte assaults of the class des
cribed, than appeals to long-suffocated
impulses and extinct well
springs of deadened souls. One
phase only of the material utility of
the fine arts is necessary to intro
duce the present subject of writing.
That is, their serviceablencss in
attracting the world's attention to a
country, with benefit to all its inter
ests, through whatever it possesses
of the grand, the beautiful, and the
romantic. Admirers of art for art's
sake do not fail to perceive this
phase. Indeed, it is impossible that
intelligent persons should, when the
stores of general information abound
with marked instances of it. Those
who wont to sec Tavernier's picture
of the great volcanic lake of Kilauea,
and Strong's picture of the majestic
Mauna Kea mountain, were seized
instinctively, even while the spell of
artistic genius was upon them, with
the impics8ion that there were the
best advertisements this country
conld possibly have hi other lands.
Especially the picture of tho volcano,
for excellent as Mr. Strong's pio
duction is, his subject is not one
that cannot be duplicated in nature's
mighty works abioad. There havo
been fine woid pictures sent through
out the world of our appallingly
grand volcano; photographs, and
pictures copied of them, have also
gone far and wide all calculated to
impress its wonderful characteristics
upon thoso seeing such counterfeit
presentiments. Yet never boforo
has justice been rendered to that
peerless phenomenon, approaching
that done by Tavernier. Think of
the reality, when the artist's repro
ductioiiupon diiiinutive canvas fills
'thesbeholdcr with awe, and becomes
so yivia to cue senses as no gazes,
ttbat the eye begins to w atch for new
inflame cones in the seething pond,
the car lo listen for tho muffled
tlmndorA of nnttiio's agonies, and
uvea tho blond rushes to tho feet nl
tho view of linlf-congealcd lava with
red eyes of fire gleaming through
many points, giving warning of tho
consequences of rashly treacling too
near tho flame-laved shore. The
perpendicular and bnttcrod walli, nil
aglow with the flame of nmuy erup
tions ; tho livid gleam from blazing
caverns hid with overhanging cliffs ;
tho serrated and leaning towers of
rock, every crevlco of which is a
red-hot mouth, and tho fierce flames
bursting tho bars of tlto mountain
hero and thcro near tho margin of
tho lake of fire these, with the ac
cessories of atmosphere and sky true
to nature, aro sublimely recreated by
tho artist. One turned with a senso
of relief from tho terribly sublime in
the burning lake to the quiet and
majestic grandeur of tho snow-capped
mountain on tho other wall. Mr.
Strong has produced in Mnuna Kca
a very impressive picture, which it
is impossible to fully tnkc in at one
brief view. It is a picture that
stays with the mind, so real is its
atmosphere, 60 true have its details
been subdued to convey an accurate
sense of distance. The imagination
is compelled to supply the invigorat-
ing mountain air, and the coolness
wafted from the snowy diamond on
the pinnacle. This picture should
really accompany the other in its
appearances in the great cities of
the world. Each, by contrast, en
hances the impression produced by
the other. Either, wherever shown,
must magnify the natural attractions
of these Hawaiian Islands.
Two New Orleans belles recently
began making and selling pickles as

upon their hands until they have

A California paper ridicules the
suggestion that farmers there should
plant and grow dates, saying, "This
delicious fruit flourishes in warm
saline water that would kill any plant
but the date, and is called the ' King
of Sahara.' " The condition of
warm saline water we should think
could be easily found in these
Islands. What says Mr. Jaeger?
Some time,ago the Georgia Legis
lature placed the clerical work in the
hands of women. Lately Governor
McDaniel testified that he had. never
examined an equal number of bills
so free from errors and defects,
while experts declare the work of
the ladies to be fifty percent cleaner
and more correct than any ever done
by male clerks. A great many of
the clerks employed in Washington
ar of the gentler sex, and for some
descriptions of clerical service they
are unapproached by men in ex-,
As an instance of bow poverty
may bo turned into wealth, in the
case of land, fifteen acres of land
considered almost worthless were
bought in 1853, near San Jose, Cal.,
for 810 an acre. It was situated in
the river bottom, but orchards were
planted and fruit ripened so success
fully that recently the purchaser,
Mr. H. Rice, sold five acres at
SI, 000 per acre. If the magic wand
of intelligent industry were likewise
waved over all the unimproved land
of this Kingdom, bow shortly would
sugar depression be robbed of most
of its terrors !
It becomes our painful duty to
announce tho death of Mrs. Lowell
Smith, which took place seven
minutes before seven o'clock this
morning at the residence of her
daugbter, Mrs. B. F. Dillingham,
Funaliou. For the past few months
the health of the deceased lady has
been noticed by her immediate
friends to be gradually failing. She
attended tho whole of Mrs. Lcavitt's
lectures, but since then had got
much weaker until she was compelled
to take to her bed. She fully rea
lized that her end was drawing near.
About two weeks ago, the deceased
seems to have fallen into an uncon
scious sleep, suffering very little
pain. Yesterdaj' tho doctor had
some hopes that his patient might
rally and be spared a little longer,
but it lias pleased God to rule it
otherwise. The deceased was born
in 1810 at Wcstboro, Mass., and
was married to tho Rev. Dr. Lowell
Smith, October 2nd, 1882. They
came by way of Capo Horn to theso
islands in 183-1 and have resided
here ever since, with the exception
of a visit thpy mado to tho States in
18G5, which extended nearly a year.
For fifty years has tho deceased
labored hand in hand with her hus
band among the Hawaiians, instruc-
ting them in things pertaining to
their temporal ni well as spiritual
welfare. There nro many on theso
Islands advanced in ycarswho havo
to thank this noblo lady for their
first teachings. Tho anniversary of
her golden wedding was celebrated
in Honolulu, October 2nd, 1882,
and was attended by a large circle
of friencts. Tho deceased lady
leaves two children, Mrs. 11. P.
Dillingham, wife of our esteemed
townsman, and Mr. A. L. Smith,
merchant, Fort street, and Superin
tendent of tho Kaumakapili Sunday
School. Mrs. Smith was secretary
of tho Stranger's Friend Society and
also President of the Woman's
Board of Missions). The bereaved
husband and family have the entire
sympathy of the whole community
in this their hour of bereavement.
Tho funeral will lake place to-morrow
afternoon at half-past three
o'clock from the Kaumakapili church,
tho scene of so many years' labor of
the deceased and her husband. Tho
Revs. E. C. Oggcl and A. O. Forbes
will conduct the services.
