TilUHSDAY, KKIJ2H, 1888.
A ROMANCE OF THE HAWAIIAN
The vUlngo of Sandy Hill Is just
now considerably excited over the
prospective return to the home of
his childhood of Glmrlcs 1?. llisliop,
of the .Sandwich Islands, bilnging
with him almost fabulous wealth.
About thirty-six years ago two ad
venturous young men left the village
to seek their foi tunc in tltc Kl Do
rado of the Pacific Const. One was
William Lee and the other Charles
It. Bishop. They went to Newbury
port, Mass., and look passage on a
whaler and sailed around Cape Horn,
intending to land somcwhcic in Cali
fornia or Oregon. The vessel chanced
to put into Honolulu for water, .and
the young men on going ashore were
so hospitably received that they de
termined to remain there, and being
very bright fellows, with pleasing
manners, they soon gained the favor
of the old King Kamelianieha ; and
in a short time Lee, who had read a
little Blackstone, was made Chief
Justice nud Chancellor of the king
dom, while Bishop was given charge
of the royal finances.
When the story of their wonderful
success fouud its way back to their
distant homo a beautiful Glens Tails
girl experienced a sudden change of
heart, Humor had credited Miss
Kate Newton's unkindncss with being
the cause of young Lee's sudden de
parture on his adventurous career,
and though absence is usually said
to conquer love, in this case it
' seemed to have the opposite effect.
Miss Kate, on taking another look
into her heart, found that she had
entirely misinterpreted that organ's
pulsations, and finding means to
convey this important discovery to
her far-off lover, who, amid the
smiles of island maidens, still re
mained true to her image, received
in return a speedy and grateful ac
knowledgment and an urgent lcquc&t
that before she made any other discovery-
she would come out to him at
once. As soon as she received tills
message the spirited 'girl started
alone and sailed half around the
world to join her lover and be mar
ried in the palace of a king. In
those days there were no Pacific or
Panama railroads, Jind a trip to the
Sandwich Islands meant a six
months' sailing voyage around Cape
Young Bishop, having left no
sweetheart behind, yielded at once
to the charms of the island Princess,
Bernicc Pauahi, adopted daughter
of the queen-mother, and their wed
ding soon followed. Thus, in a very
brief period, these two "penniless
Sandy Hill boys were practically
"running" the Government of that
far-off island realm. A few years
later Lee returned to this country,
accompanied by his bride and sur
rounded by a suite of islanders,
and, as an Envoy Extraordinary and
Minister Plenipotentiary, succeeded
in negotiating with the United States
a new treaty very favorable to the
Islands. But on returning to Hono
lulu his health, never good, broke
down entirely, and in a 'short time
he died, beloved by lung and people.
His large estate on the Island, con
sisting of sugar and cocoa planta
tions, wcic all left to his wife, who
a few years ago still retained them,
although soon after the death of
her husband, leaving her interests in
charge of Mr. Bishop, her good
friend and cousin, she returned to
this country, and is now the wife of
a distinguished editor and Savant.
A DOCTOR'S DIARY.
A pocket diary picked up iu the
street of a neighboring .city would
seem to indicate, from the following
choice extract, that the owner was a
medical man : '
"Kasc 282. Old Misses Boggs.
Aint got no bisnis, but has plenty of
money. Sickness all a humbug.

"For what we arc about to re
ceive may the Lord make us truly
thankful," devoutly murmured Dus
enbury, sitting with folded hands at
the dinner-table, Then, looking
disdainfully over the dishes set be
fore him, he snarled: "Good gra

want mc to tell you that I don't

more than three times in one week.

A NOVEL JEWEL SAFE.
A correspondent of a Boston
paper, writing from Holland, tclN
the following slory, which wc ato
qtdtc sine must be true, insomuch
as no one would ever linvo thought of
making up such n preposterous
Perhaps my patient countrymen
will enjoy the fun of just one inci
dent of our visit to the royal palace
in Amsterdam, the afternoon hofoie
wo set out for Delft and Lcyden.
Wc wcic coining out of the, great
hall of reception, that wonderful
room of vastness and beauty said
to be the largest In the world used
for such a purpose; wc had been
admiring with extensive enthusiasm
the beautiful sculptmcs in while
marble, the frescoes upon the ceil
ing a hundred feet high, and lament
ing tjiat all this cxtrayagant costli
ness should be lost because of the
king's selection of The Hague for
his residence. Just then the silence
was bioken by the slow, metallic
voice of an Englishman who was
somehow in our train ; lie was pro
pounding to the patient and polite
servitor this question, in dead earnest
of inquiry : "Tell mc, is the regalia
of the kingdom commonly kept in
this receptacle during the per
sistent absence of the royal retinue?"
So startling in its absurdity was
such an interrogation when accom
panied by the gesture he made, so
measured and pompous were the
tones of the man's voice, that the
guide stopped and looked at him,
and then glanced at us to see
whether we owned him, and then
asked him to repeat his words. The
drawl drew us to observe him par
ticularly; lie was pointing to an iron
stove of an American pattern our
familiar comfort at home, with its
name cast in the metal plate in
front, "The Crown Jewel" and he
was actually desiring to know if
they kept the crown jewels of Hol
land in that receptacle while the
king was away living down by the
THE BRAHMIN BURIAL SERVICE.
The following compilation from a
burial service of the Brahmins, who
arc the priests of all the other castes
of Hindoos that burn their dead,
may prove interesting to the reader.
It is extracted from the "Sacred

by thee he was sustained, and unto
thee he now returns.
O Fire ! thou hadst a claim on our
brother during life; he subsisted by
thy influence in nature ; to thee wc

purity ; may his spirit be purified on
entering a new state of existence.
OAir! while the breath of life
continued, our brother respired by
thee ; his last breath is now depart

O Water! thou didst contribute
to the life of onr brother ; thou wert
one of his sustaining elements, his
remains are now dispersed ; receive
thy share of him who has now. taken
an everlasting flight.

The roof of this structure is a single
