TUISSDAY. .11 Mi HO, 1885.
THE FAIRIES OF MAUHA KEA.
nv l.u.M.vs iama:..
In the olden time, long, hint; ago,
before the nlgarobn trees In the yard
were even seeds, there dwelt on the
snowy sumnill of Mntinn Ken u beau
tiful,' happy race of liltlo people,
with childlike forms, and silken
locks, :uid voices like the tinkling
of bells, which wcic never raised in
angry strife. A happy life they led
away up on this cold mountain top,
far from the haunts of man. But
how came these little folks lieic?
"Why did they live thus apait from
other beings? When they first came
to these islands they tried to find
their way into the licaits and homes
of the natives ; but what cared the
savages for these little creature,
whose lives were as pure as the
snow? They cared more for war
and all that is evil. The little fairies
found thai they could not live in the
plains and villages with mankind as
long as they weieso vicious and dis
solute, so they lied to the mountain
fastnesses he're to build for them
selves a home. For down the moun
tain side grew the lofty and beautw
fill koa, kou, kauwila and fragrant
sandal wood; here also wns the
sweet lcihua and ohia, with their
dark, glossy leaves and bright flow
ers and fruit. The iwipolcnu, with
its scarlet feather ; the oo, with its
glossy black ami royal yellow plu
mage; the elcpaio, the ulaai ha
wanc, and many other birds, gay of
plumage and sweet of note, llilted
from bough to bough, filling the air
with delicious music. Around the
trunks of the ticcs twined the fra
gtant maile and iaia sometimes
Teaching the very top of the trees,
then hanging from branch to branch,
making thick bowers for the delicate
forms which grew in nodding clus
ters beneath their shade. Here
grew the tree ferns, and morning
and evening-glories peeped shyly
out and nodded their heads, as if to
say: "This is our home; man has
no right here." Further up the
mountain side the trees weic less
numerous, and in thick clusters the
thirst-assuaging ohclos, polias and
raspberries grew. A little stream
ran merrily down, leaping over the
rocks and ravines, bubbling and
foaming, now and then stopping to
rest under the 'hade of sonic friend
ly ticcs. llriglit flowers, in wild
profusion, bordcicd the water's
edge and along the path, for here
was the road that led to the home of
these little people.
Come with me; leave the world,
with all its pomp and gaiety, far be
hind, and let us imagine ourselves
living in the days when these beauti
ful islands of ouis were filled with
heathen, whose dark deeds and
crimes filled the land with shame.
Wc are walking by the side of the
stream hand in hand, now and then
turning to admire the beautiful
panorama at our feet. From the
mountain side below come the sweet
notes of the denizens of the forest,
and the music from the brook has
a charm which we cannot resist,
"but we part the undergrowth and
trample down the lovely ferns, led
on by some unseen nana, unlit wc
come to the source of the stream. I
sec before mc now the entrance to a
cavern, on cither side of which stand
tall trees like grim sentinels. Now
and then through the branches wc
catch glimpses of the blue sky, while
far above arc the snowy peaks of
Mauna Kca, beneath which is the
home of these little fairies. Wc
stand transfixed, gazing at the scene.
In front is the cavern. Delicate
ferns imbedded in moss veil the face
of the grim old rocks through which
the water trickles, making soft music
as it falls drop by drop. Groping
our way along until we come to a
door in the rock, it opens and we go
through to find ouiselves in a broad
passage. The ground is covered
with snow, its walls glisten and
gleam with sparkling stars ; up, up,
we go. Hush! Methinks 1 hear
the sweet strains of music ; it comes
nearer and nearer,
"Make my f-oul as while and pine
As this heavenly bloom
That blooms upon thy bosom."
Docs it come from invisible beings ?
No, the sounds grow more distinct.
Where are wc? In a beautiful gar
den lit up with red, blue and green
lights; fountains send their waters
high in the air to fall again in drops
like jewels, and rare flowers dis
pense their fragiance. Wc pass
through the garden to find ourselves
in a largo and brilliant hall whose
walls arc blazing with precious gems,
dazzling in biighlness; the floor is
inlaid with peails; tiny winged
creatures arc flitting about the place.
Their queen is seated on her royal
couch. She gives us a kindly greet
jn"' and bids us be seated. Reclin
ing on scats of cm ions workman
sldp, wc watch these little creatines,
whose bright eyes peer at us from
under lily brows. The queen watches
her loyal subjects, as with skilful
touches of their little lingers they
wcavo fabrics of wonder and beauty,
or, as to tho sound of music played
by tiny musicians, thoy whirl in the
mazy dance. Sometimes, before the
sun had tlscn and when the dew nB
still on the grass, they would lenvc'
their home for a whllo to wander by
tho sit cam and gather the flowers I
growing thcie In wild profusion, to
adorn themselves. Often on a sum
mer's night ulion tho moon shone in
all her splendor, shedding a soft
light over the sleeping cnrlh, they
would gather in the forest where
moss formed a thick velvety carpet,
and spend the night in frolic until
the !onnd of the 'bugle called them
Such was the home of these little
folks, and the life they led; here
they dwelt for many a long
year, happy little creatures with
none of the troubles of this world.
The queen was not ignorant of
what was going on in the valleys
and plains below her. Two or three
times a year her messenger, a little
creature with wings colored like tho
rainbow, was sent far down the
niountain. He had the power of
turning himself into a butterfly and
went flitting about from place to
place, taking in all that he saw and
returning to tell the queen. It wns
always the same story of war, dark
ness," sin and crime. It saddened
her hcait to have the messenger
conic back always with the same old
slory. But one day, after being
gone longer than usual, the little
fellow rushed in crying out, "Good
news, good news; strangers have
crossed tho ocean, have left their
homes far behind and come to these
islands at the peril of their lives to
try to lead the people out of dark
ness into light,"
"Pence "diall iigaiu extern! her olive
Climes '-hall ocao ami ancient fraud
gaily sang these little creatures,
when they heard the good tidings.
The queen stretched forth her wand
and said, "Listen to mc, 0 my
people; wc have heard the good
news, to-morrow the messenger shall
go down again. The time has now
come when this merry band will
have to be separated, this beautiful
home to be broken and wc be made
invisible, once more to dwell among
mankind, this time forever, for wo
were put on the earth to do some
good. When the messenger returns
to-morrow eve, we shall know who
of our number arc to go first, for wc
will not go all at once ; it may be
many years before this home of ours
shall be abandoned for ever. O
my people, let not your hearts be
sad on this last night, ltathcr re
joice to think that soon some of you
shall lie of use to mankind. The
next morning the litflo messenger
spread his wings and flew down to
find out who of his friends were
needed the most among the people,
lie first lit on a tree in a hamlet,
and from the sounds which proceed
ed from a neighboring hut, he knew
who was wanted here. He then
kept on until he come to a house, a
little different from the surrounding
ones. He hovered around the door
and at last flew in. The room was
dark and scantily furnished ; a lady
sat at a small table, the only one in
the room, which was placed near the
door so that she might get a little
light to write by. When she saw
the butterfly the tears began to roll
down her sad, sweet face, and she
stretched out her hands to it saying,
"Beautiful creature, where did you
come from? Have j-ou, too, crossed
the ocean to dwell in this strange
land? Or, have you come to
comfort mc by your presence,
beautiful creatures of my native
land!" On hearing these words he
returned with all speed to tell the
queen of what he had seen and who
of his companions were needed the
most. Once more the bugle was
sounded and the loyal little subjects
were gathered together to know who
of their number were to leave them.
The queen first called to her side a
beautiful maiden with golden locks ;
a bright smile and a look of content
ment and happiness were on her
brow. "Thou art needed," she
said, " in the plains and valleys to
be the aibiter when war threatens,
lo protect the nation, to encourage
the maintenance of right; to
morrow before Aurora has gone forth
lo herald the approach of the god of
day, with the touch of my wand
thou shall be madu invisible, thy
place is below and llicic shall thou
remain forever. Two others shall
accompany thee, oue to lead the
thoughts of the people away from
earth to heaven, that they may rely
not on those who have come to help
them but on a higher Power. The
other shall carry sunshine into the
darkest and gloomiest places, and the
sad and disheartened shall welcome
her with a smile. After these three
little fairies had been going in and
out among the people for a time,
wars ceased, the nation began to
turn away from their heathen gods,
to worship the one true and living
God, and cveiy Sabbath larger
crowds assembled to hear the word
preached ; schools were started and
were attended by young and old ;
the strangers felt encouraged and
more came out to join this band of
faithful woikcrs. One by one, as
the queen learned from her messen
ger that they were needed, thcfaiiies
left their mountain home ami came
down once more to dwell with the
people. Among them was a little
fellow whose bold, fearless eye was
able to meet the glance of nny one.
llo was accompanied by u nmldcn
fair, chaste in word and deed and
kind of hcait. They stimulated tho
people lo honesty and purity of
heart, without which . nation can
novel' prosper. Of that beatlful
fniry palnco nothing now is left but
an old gray eacrn, whoso rocks arc
destitute of the lovelj ferns which
once veiled their surface. The little
fairies are still here, and will be as.
long as peace, faith, hope, honesty,
and purity are chciishcil by us.
Sometimes they find it hard to make
their work effectual, and again they
easily win their way. Wc thank
thee, Queen of the Fairies, for thy
unselfish, devoted life. As often as
the snow enpped sumiuito of Mauna
Kca meet our gaze, our hearts arc
lifted up in thankfulness for the
happiness nnd prosperity that thou
hast brought to Hawaii-nei.

Ho is now all right again, and is being

treatment has been found by long ex.
pcrienco lo be the right plan to adopt

surer foal-gctier, Cut also ho will
transmit n greater amount of speed,
energy and vigor to his offspring. This

To parties owning good mares this is
uu opportunity that should not ho ncg

desirable stock horso in tho country.
Mr. Campbell tells mo that of all of tho
horses that he lias imported to this coun.

ho likes his colts by Ventuie hotter than
any of them, which Is surely proof
