FRIDAY, bHIT. 18, 1885.
CAPT. MACDONELL'S LAST SHOT.
Kiiituu UiM.ini.N: In answer for
the Inst time to Mr. J. 15. Wiseman's
letter of yesterday, his lctlcis pub
lished tu every plausible just now,
ami his sympathy for' me in having
the wiong book, very considerate.
The book lie represents was not only
offered to me by the San Francisco
agents, but they offered mo special
inducements to take their book with
me. I declined it for a very good
l cason their work is to represent two
volumes, and, as 1 have said bcfoie,
the second olumc is a myth, having
in existence whatever.
13y the arrival of next Mai iposa,
my book, which has been so liberally
subscribed for by the solid men of
Honolulu, is expected. Then the
conclusions of any fair-minded pub
lic can be obtained.
No more bosh, biz is biz, and I
have to leave for the colonics by
next steamer not only with Grant's
book but several others of gicat im
portance. I hope Mr. Wiseman
may fill the bill and get as many
solid subset ibers as 1 have. Yours
respectfully, T. K. M.
BETTER THAN SWIMMING.
Some aquatic authorities dcclaie
that so far from saving life the art
of swimming endangers it; that
those who know how to swim take
risks to which they otherwise would
not be exposed ; and that so far as
safety is concerned, knowledge and
skill in floating is a far more im
portant and useful art.
This theory would seem to be
justiffed by the adventures of a
woman on the seashore in Accomac
County, Virginia, recently, who,
while bathing with three other wo
men, lost her footing, fell into a
deep hole and was carried off by
the tide. The other, women ran to
some fishermen a quarter of a mile
away, but they, believing the woman
to be already drowned and carried
out by the tide, would not budge.
But two young men got into a boat
and pulled over toward the beach.
They found her alive with qiily her
nose above the surface of the water.
She luckily had on a large straw
hat, which stood above the level
and attracted their attention. She
had attended a swimming school in
Brooklyn, but was never able to
learn to swim. She therefore gave
her attention to -floating, which any
body can acquire with a little per
severance. AVhcn she felt herself
out of her depth, she instinctively
threw herself on her back, kept her
hands down, breathed through her
nose and was lescued.. Detroit
FACTS AND NEWS.
Howells says that no woman is
satisfied to live with a genius, aud
he may be right. Lots of 'em seem to
prefer a coachman. D't Fr. Press.
A Schenectady man left $10,000
in his will "for the worthy poor."'
This was ten years ago, and the
. agent hasn't passed out a dollar yet.
Whenever he lias found a woitliy
poor man the individual wasn't in
need of charity. D't Fr. Press.
"Mildred." Do not say, "Pull
him up with a round turn." It is
. slangy and vulgar. When you feel
a yearning desire to bring him to a
condition of stability use the Bos
tonese phrase: "Intercept him with
an orbicular devexity." Philadel
Host (to Missionary) "You see,
Doctor, society compels young
ladies to dress in these low-necked
" Missionary (interrupting)
"Oh, don't apologize. No neces
sity, I assure you. 1 have lived ten
years among the Fiji Islanders."
The Rambler. '
Lord Salisbury, we are told, is
the first bearded man to become
Prime Minister of England. This
is impoitant if true, since it refutes
the theory thatitis only inabarber's
chair that a man can get that in
formation so requisite to all great
ness. The Judge.
Karl Blind claims to be aide to
prove that Victor Hugo was of Ger
man oiigln, and a Fienchmnn only
by the accident of circumstances.
France, however, owns the illustiious
author by virtue of the provcibial
:'nino points of the law." His life
was Frenoh, his works likewise, and
E Franco gave him honor abundant
and a tomb, Still, the pioof Karl
Blind claims ability to produce would
be very irritating to the French
