MAMMALIA OF THE HAWAIIAN
iiy iuitu: lincucocK.
Tlio mammalia of the Islands Is
very limited, not, exceeding ten or
fifteen species. Tho indigenous
members of this class were the dog,
hog, and a species of rat. The
hogs, or suridiul, were small animals
with long heads and small, erect
cars. These have all or nearly all
disappeared in late years, but for
'eign varieties have been introduced
and have multiplied very rapidly.
In the forests of Hawaii and Kauai,
and I presume iu those of other is
lands also, although I do not know,
a great many are running in the wild
state. These sometimes grow to a
great size, and though they never
attain to the degree of fatness that
the domesticated hogs do, they aro
tenderer and their flesh has a sweet,
delicate flavor not found in the
domesticated hog. The boar has a
pair of tusks which often grow to
the length of eight or ten inches,
and aro very strong. When cornered
or angered in any way they do not
hesitate to charge, whether on man
or beast, and oftentimes a dog has
been killed by a single thuist from
one of them, which become danger
ous weapons when wielded by such
a foe. The natives were and arc
very fond of pork.
Of the dog which was found in
the Islands very little is known. It
is supposed that it was a small
species, hairless, or, if not entirely
so, it left that impicssion on the
mind of any one who saw it. They
were raised by the natives, great
care being taken to fatten them, for
when in this condition they were
considered great delicacies. Quite
a number of dogs of foreign breeds
have been brought here ; and at one
time the forests of Hawaii were full
of those which had become wild,
and they were very savage, making
it dangerous for any one to venture
into the woods unarmed.
The only variety of the family of
inuridai, or rats, was an animal in
size between the rat and the mouse.
But since vessels have visited the
shores of our island kingdom, both
rats arid mice have taken up their
abode with us in great numbers.
In 1792 Vancouver visited tho
Islands and brought here some cat
tle. On the 19th of February he
landed a pair, but the cow died
soon after ; and on the 22nd of the
banic month he landed five cows
and some sheep, at Kealakekua
Bajy. They were a present to Iva
mehamcha I., who was then one of
the most powerful chiefs of Hawaii.
In 1823, extensive herds of cattle
were roaming the pasture lands of
Hawaii; while on most of the is
lands were Hocks of goats, and also
a few horses and bhecp. These
were all introduced by Vancouver
some time during the years 1792 to
179-1. Cattle and horses in the wild
state now range the uplands of some,
at least, of the Islands. "Within a
few years cattle of mauy valuable
breeds have been imported, and a
number of dairies furnish us with
milk, cream and butter; while the
cattle ranches supply our wants with
meat, good, bad, and indifferent,
horses are used all over the group,
in some districts simply as riding
horses, while in others both for car
riage and riding.
Deer have been imported and
there are now quite a number of
them both on Hawaii and Molokai ;
and although they are not as plenti
ful as some of us might wish, still
they are steadily increasing, and if
we wait long enough, we may have
our own venison.
Cats have been brought to the
Islands and they now abound as
well as bound all over the group.
At one time a number of them which
ran away, or winch were turned
loose, became wild. Their native
name, which is popoki, was given
them in this way: a missionary had
a cat which one day he was petting,
saying, "Poor pussy." A native
hearing him, tried to repeat it, and
succeeded in saying, "popoki."
This name has clung to them ever
The mongoose were brought
here three or four years ago, by tho
planters, who imported them for tho
purpose of turning loose in the cane
llelds, where they do much good by
destroying the rats and mice, which
they seem to have a special antipathy
for. The mongooso is a camivoious
animal. It is a little smaller than
the ichneumon, which is about tho
sizo of a cat. The ichneumon is
dark brown, ringed with yellow j the
mongoose is a little pulcr and grayer
than the ichneumon. The body is
long; legs short; head small, point
ed and elongated ; cars short and
rounded ; the feet arc five-toed, with
sharp scmi-rctractilo claws ; the eyes
aro large, tho fur soft and the tail
generally long and bushy. Its
natural food is rats, reptiles, eggs
and birds. Tho namo of mongooso
is popularly applied to all lemurs of
an olivo brown color. A single
young is produced at birth which the
mother carries ab'jut concealed in
her long hair or coiled around her
body, tending it with great care.
Guinea pigs, rabbits, whito mico and
monkeys have been brought hero as
pots. Other -forms of tho class
mammalia may bo found hero, but
these arc tho most common and best
A New York Sunday school teacher
asked her pupils each to recite an
appropriate verse of Scripture when
putting their contributions in the
box. The youngest boy dropped in
his penny with the quotation, UA
fool and his money arc soon parted."

THIS fast trotting stallion has been
withdrawn from training and will
now ho kept for Mock purposes cxclu
slvcly. He has shown as much speed as
ever and had it not been for an uccl.
dent which befell him a few days be
fore the race, ho being dead lame on tho
11th, wo think that he would have giv.
en the gang a hard tussle for the monoy.
He is now all right again, and is being
regularly jogged at tho track, and can
show close to a 2:30 clip at any timo
that ho is called upon. This kind of
treatment has been found by long ex.
perlenco to be tho right plan to adopt
with a btallion, as by it he is not only a
surer foal-gettcr, but also ho will
transmit a greater amount of speed,
energy nnd vigor to his offspring. This
plan is now tho rule In all of tho largo
breeding establishments everywhere.
To parties owning good marcs this Is
an opportunity that should not bo neg
lected, for Venture, with his fine breed,
ing and great speed, I consider tho most
desirable stock horso In the country.
Mr. Campbell tells mo that of all of tho
horses that he has imported to this couu.
try, which is probably a dozen or more,
ho likes his colts by Venture better than
any of them, which Is surely proof
enough of his qualities as a stoek.gcttcr.
