The community handsomely show
ed its appreciation of the opportunit'
afforded it by tlic Library Associa
tion, of hearing a distinguished gen
tleman lecture upon an interesting
topic. Another opportunity is to be
presented next week by the same
body, of hearing the noted scientist,
Prof. Agassiz, 'it is to be hoped with
equally satisfactory results.
A correspondent makes an urgent
plea for the adoption of silk culture
as one of the new industries that arc
generally admitted to be necessary
to the future prosperity of these Is
lands. We would earnestly second
his propositions. The proposed in
dustry, as our correspondent points
out, requires no large outlay of
money and no appreciable expendi
ture of labor. It can be carried on
as an experiment upon ground that
could hardly be used for anything
else. Its successful results arc
nearly all profit ; its failure, until it
reaches a stage when some may
stake their entire sustenance upon it,
would be no severe, positive loss.
As an article of export in the raw
state, the product of silk culture
would be a valuable increment to
the nation's commerce. Manufac
tured here, it would be a great gain
in several ways. A fresh invest
ment would be furnished for capital,
It would be one of those much
desired manufactures, in which the
raw material is furnished by our own
people. Our youth would be given
a new opening for engaging in skilled
employment at home, thus retaining
them in the country. A large
amount of money now going abroad
for clothing would be saved, while
the Queen of Sheba would not com
pare with one of our Hawaiian bellos
arrayed in domestic silk, as easily
afforded, perhaps, as calico now is.
There is undoubtedly a large amount
of capital held in comparatively
small amounts in mauy hands, in
this, country, ready to be invested in
enterprises where reasonable assur
ance of profitable returns is held out.
Most of the local enterprises hitherto
successfully launched, and of those
at present occasionally advocated,
have been to furnish some needed or
desired convenience or comfort to
the community. Like the existing
telephone system and the proposed
street railway, these enterprises are
not productive industries, but rather
consume a certain proportion of the
country's wealth. They arc bimply
public conveniences and auxiliaries
to business, directly profitable it
may be to their owners, but only
' indirectly so to the country. Wo
are always ready to ndvocato such
enterprises upon the ground of their
necessity when that is apparent, and
to use as an argument for their pro
motion the value they arc likely to
bo as an invebtment. These modern
improvements and progressivo under
takings' follow naturally upon the
heels of growing prosperity. We
should prefer to see them established
A SILKEN HINT.
EniTcn Buu.ktix: I believe with
you that the proper thing to do is to
diversify our products. Wc put all
our eggs into one basket; that bas
ket has had a" severe shaking of late,
and.thc eggs arc in danger of being
all smashed together. What shall
we do if the break-up already occurs V
Can wc get along without eggs?
Fried ham alone is poor back. Eggs
arc a nccessit in ice cream and
fine cakes. Eggnog without eggs
is like plum pudding without plums.
Foolish people, if we had made a
prudent division and placed our
eggs in several baskets, the toppling
over of one basket would not leave
us eggless and ruined.
I know it is a very diillcult thing
to make a change now. Those who
arc engaged in sugar planting have
invested their all in that industry.
Land, the preparation of land for
cultivation, and machinery have
taken every cent they possessed,
and, in most cases, something more.
What can these men do m the way
of starling new industries now."
Their capital is all invested, and
they cannot, in the present state of
depression, get it back if they try.
They arc compelled to stay where
they arc, struggle on, make tho best
of hard times, and hope for better
If, then, new induttrics arc to be
btartcd they must be taken in hand
by those not already engaged in
sugar raising. Is there any -uninvested
capital in the country? Yes,
a plenty. Are there any industries
which this capital might be employ
ed to establish with reasonable pros
pects of profits? Yes, ever so many,
as frequently shown by the news
It is my intention, however, at the
present time to refer only to the in
dustry which you, Mr. Editor,
directed attention to a few days
ago, that is, Silk Culture. As you
correctly said, the. experiment has
been already made on these islands,
and the adaptability of the soil and
climate for the silk worm and its
food fully proven. Now, it scorns
to mo, that of the many now indus
tries advocated by tho press, this is
the one which commends itself to
the widest range of attention, chief
ly because it requires so little money.
Scarcely anything that could be
mentioned can be undertaken with
so little capital as silk culture. A
very few dollars will suffice to pur
chase the silk worm eggs and the
necessary apparatus for a beginning.
Tho mulberry trees, for food for the
worms, can bo planted around gar
den fences, and do not require land
solely set apart for tuat purpose
To-day being Ash Wednesday the
solemn ceremony, which has given
the day its name, took place, as
usual, at the Catholic Cathedral,
according to the rite observed from
old times by the Catholic Church.
Before 0 a. m. Mass, ami after the
Ut. Rev. Bishop of Olba had blessed,
with noly water and incense, the
ashes made of the palms of last year,
reading an intra it and four collects
iu which pardon and mercy are im
plored for the penitents, the faithful
approached and knelt at the altar
rails, and His Lordship put ashes on
the forehead of each, saying,
" Memento, homo, quia pulvis cs, et
in pulvcrem revcrtcris " (Remem
ber, man, that thau art dust, and
shalt return to. dust). The admin
istration of the ashes is usually
made during the whole day, cither
by the Bishop himself, or by any
clergyman of the Cathedral, to the
faithful whom a long distance or
homo occupation might have pre
vented coming to the morning cere
mony. This administration of the ashes
was not originally made to all the
faithful, but only to public penitents.
These had to appear before the
church door on the first day of Lent,
in penitential garb and with bare
feet. Their penances were there im
posed upon them ; then they were
brought into the church before the
Bishop, who put ashes on their
heads, saying, besides the words,
"Memento," etc., "age pcontcn
tiam ut habeas vitam sctcrntna,"
Repent (or, do penance) that thou
ty and affection friendsofthepenitents
used to join themselves to them, ex
pressing in their outward guise a
similar contrition, and offering their
foreheads also to be sprinkled with
ashes. The number of these per
sons gradually increased, until at
length the administration of a shes
was extended to the whole congrega
tion and the rite took its present
named, and llioso to leave by five

12,000 men with artillery luhi ca

but to I'akhoi, whero they will bo

troops will march along the frontier
to the province of Kwang Si, nnd

while Gen. Negrier will operalo

without bringing on a serious en
gagement, endeavor to hold the
enemy iu position.

A Paris despatch says Geri. Lewal
has received from Gen. Bricre De
Lisle at Hanoi a telegram which mo
difies completely the plan of the
campaign in the East. The Commander-in-Chief
in Tonquin an
nounces that he has before him at
least 80,000 Chinese troops, so
strongly intrenched as to render any
direct attack utterly hopeless. More
over, the naturo of the country to be
passed over before reaching Langson
and the Chinese frontier is such as
to compel the French to attack the
Chinese in front if the original plan
bo continued. Such an attack, says
Bricre, would involve an enormous
sacrifice of men with no result, and
would require material of war, artil
lery and means of transportation far
more complete than anything the
General has at band. Under these
conditions Gen. Briero Do Lisle con
siders a diversion near the Chinese
frontier indispensable, and has asked
