SCHOOL EXAMINATION AT WAIALUA.
On Thursday, July 23rd, the
examination of the English Govern
ment school at Waialua on this
Island, took place. After a hymn
and short prayer, the several classes
of the primary department were
examined in English reading, multi
plication tables, sums from dicta
tion and mental arithmetic. With
one or two exceptions very good
progress seemed to have been made
by the scholars during the past year.
The upper division was next
examined in morals, translating the
exercises for the benefit of their
Hawaiian friends, some of whom
seemed to think the proverbs too
deep for their comprehension. Read
ing followed in English, then gram
mar, translation from Hawaiian into
English and finally geography. The
result of the examinations reflects
the highest credit on the Principal,
Rev. A. Claik, who, though suffer
ing from sickness, works on un
flinchingly, and is very faithful to
the interests of the Board of Education.-
After a recess a number of
the scholars read original compo
sitions in English, with Hawaiian
translations, on set subjects. The
writing, as well as the style of the
essays, was generally very credit
able. Several English recitations
were followed by sol-fa exercises,
the latter being well done. The
recitation of a piece entitled "Old
shoes," byashoemaker'sson, caused
much merriment. Some very well
executed maps were displayed on
the black boards by tho elder
scholars. Mr. W. S. Wond, the
District Police Justice, and the
pastor of the native vchurch, each
made remarks, urging the scholars
to increased diligence, and their
parents to sustain the efforts of their
children in learning. The school
was then dismissed for the term.
(The following lines were sug
gested by the recitation of an En
glish poem, containing. the words,
"This is thy neighbor to ransom!"
at the breaking up of Waialua En
glish School on Thursday, July 28,
" Who is my neighbor?" Is it he

Whoso form I know, whose face I view.
Of him, what more to mo Is new?
A neighbor such; but far more true
A neighbor, both to mo and you,

The weary traveller seeking rest;
Tho naked, shrinking from tho cold;

For noiio but seeks a friend In need.

Which, blest by God, will grow tho more 1

THE HOLY OONDS.
Last evening, at eight o'clock,
Mr. John L. Blaisdcll was united m
marringo to Miss Matilda Hughes.
Rev. Alexander Mackintosh solemn
ized the contract in tho ritual of tho
Anglican Church. Tho ceremony
took place at the residence of the
bride's father, Mr. Thomas Hughes,
corner of Nuuanu and Kukui streets.
As of happy omen, tho storm that had
laged for twenty-four hours became
a glorious calm and left a delightful
atmosphere as the hour arrived so
important to tho "two souls with
but a single thought, two hearts
that beat as one." Consequently
tho guests wcro on time in goodly
number, filling the parlors and
verandahs. The front of the house
was gaily and brilliantly illuminated
with variously-shaped colored lan
terns. Within tho residence fes
toons of ferns crossed ones of
leaves and vines ; an arch of palms
studded with roses stood in the
doorway between parlors; curtains
and walls were adorned with deli
cate sprigs of fern; the chande
liers were embowered in foliage, and
bouquets were plentifully disposed
about the rooms. Altogether the
decoration was conceived in great
taste, and executed with skill.
Misses Emma and Alice, sisters of
the bride, were the bridesmaids,
and Messrs. Charles and George
Lucas (jr.) the groomsmen. The
bride looked exceedingly charming,
dressed in blue satin trimmed with
white lace, a wreath of orange blos
soms in her hair, and the gossamer
biidal veil half floating in nir.
Pretty, too, were the bridesmaids,
in white array with pink trimmings.
A table was resplendent with many
and rich wedding gifts, including a
good deal of silver plate. Immedi
ately after the ceremony and con
gratulations, the guests wcro invited
to a flue collation on the side veran
dah, and throughout tho evening ice
cream and other refreshments were
in constant round. A detachment
of the Royal Band was stationed
upon the front verandah, and to its
music there was dancing, off and on,
until the party broke up at mid
night. Those who did not dance
found an abundance of pleasant
company to keep them up to the
spirits due upon such an occasion.
50 happiness beamed on every coun
tenance as the guests took their
leave, with hearty wishes for the
happy couple entering life's journey
together. Mr. Blaisdcll takes his
bride home with him to Kohala,
Hawaii, by the Kinau on Thursday.
He is engaged in sugar-making
there. May his twain-ono existence
be as sweet as his occupation.

until to-morrow for sentence.
EIGHTY YEARS OF ICN0RANCE.
Summer Hartwell, the octogena
rian hermit of Shirley, is dead. He
lived and died in tho room where ho
was born. Ho passed half of his
life in a locality where he could hear
the locomotivo whistle daily, yet ho
never rode on a train of cars, and
know not the appearance of the in
side of an ordinary freight caboose.
Ho had no idea of the nature of the
telegraph instrument, and had failed
to gaze upon tho telephone trans
mitter. Horse cars would have been
as strange to him as they would have
been to the North American Indian
in 1537. Of tho several towns near
Shirley he had visited only two.
Tho city of Fitchburg, two miles
away, ho knew irt more about than
ho did of Herat. From tho hilltop
where- ho passed his days can plainly
bo seen tho church spires in Lu'rten
berg, three miles away, yet Summer
Hartwell knew as much about Con
stantinople as ho did of Lunenberg.
He had been to Townsend Harbor,
an adjacent village, ami had paid
visits to a grist-mill on tho edgo of
Groton, but nt that point he would
not alight from hl team. Neither
curiosity nor a desire for informa
tion had over prompted him to learn
in just what manner his corn was
turned into meal. Hartwell never
saw a circus, never attended a coun
try cattle show, never heard of a
thousand matters familiar to every
schoolboy in the land. For. forty
years he had not attended church,
but he made the request that when
ho died the bell upon the Unitarian
church bo tolled, and it was.
Politically this odd fellow was
Republican, but ho did not follow
closely the political world. Ho voted
for Blaine last year, but he did not
tarry at the polls. Disappointment
in love is popularly supposed to have
caused him to sccludo himself from
tho world, but nothing definite on
this point is known.

A curious ceremony was celebrated
the other day in London. The Gre
gorian Choir, to the number of one
thousand, marched round in St.

old Gregorian chants. Instrumental
players at certain distances kept the
choir in tunc.
A public meeting was held June
20 at St. James' Hall, London, Eng.,

definite was arrived at.

A NEW CURE FOR MEASLES.
In a car on a train bound West it
was discovered that a little boy
showed symptoms of measles.
"You will have to take tho child
forward to the smoking-car," said
tho conductor to tho mother. "He
cannot remain here."
As the tired mother complied with
this dictum tho little boy said:
"Is ho a doctor, mamma?"
"No," she replied, "he is a con
ductor." "Well, then, how docs he know
that tobacco smoke is good for the
measles?" Vticaro Tribune.

It is said that sixty percent of
the childicn born in Russia die be
fore they aro live years old. And
we understand that tho majority of
those who attain the age of manhood
wish they had been similarly for
tunate. An editor in a large French town
recently published this notice:
"The wine merchant who sold me
last week a bottle of lemonade
flavored with vitriol for a bottle of
champagne0 is requested to send me,
within twenty-four hours, a bottle
of genuine champagne, failing which
his name and address will be made
public." The result was that he
received almost unlimited contribu
tions of first-class wine forthwith.
A scientific writer says that to
discover how an insect breathes,
"take, say a wasp or a hornet."
He may mean well, but we shall not
take cither a wasp or a hornet. The
person who takes cither a wasp or
hornet to discover how an insect
breathes is pretty apt to do some
very rapid and vigorous breathiug
himself before ho proceeds far with
the investigation. Better take an
insect that doesn't violate the law
against carrying concealed weapons.

The following anecdote is told

only stopping to take food. At last
