CROAKINC NOT REFORM.
As it takes all sorts of people to
fill the world, it need not be w ondcrcd
at that some of them arc of less
value than others. With respect to
the social side of life, the person
who croaks is one of the most
unsatisfactory beings that can be
thrown into any community. That
there arc any number of causes of
complaint and occasions to find
fault no one v ill deny : but to bo
persistently reminded of such draw
backs is, to a person with nerves, a
severe allliction, and to a person of
sense, a nuisance. The burden of
the croaker's song is always about
the same. Everything is wrong,
and the w orld is going to the dogs.
Times v ere infinitely better some
where in the indefinite periods of
the shadowy past, but now all is
changed and changed for the worse.
Where industry was ever active,
now idleness rests like a pall on
enterprise. Where nature was the
guide to manners, now art and
fashion lead the way. Once all
were independent inasmuch as wants
were few, and there was n common
and almost equal division of wealth,
there being nothing to divide ; now,
however, a few have realized accu
mulations of fortune, and the re
mainder are in their debt, which
means proprietorship of less than
nothing. In ye ancient times, those
who carried themselves riotously
had the quietus put on them in a
summary fashion w lien their heads
came off, they were out of danger
of again losing them ; and there was
no running to the new spapcr office
to peel the editor for putting names
in the paper. These and many more
irregularities of civilization and
contrasts between present and past
ways are themes which the croaker
never ceases to keep fully ventilated.
The croaker can always be depended
on, however, not to make matters
any better. He leaves the world,
on his own showing, a little worse
than he found it. He improves
nothing, inaugurates no reform. He
is a specialist in finding flaws, but
no expert in mending them. There
are many spheres of usefulness in
social circles, but the croaker is too
big to fill the small places and too
little to fill the large ones. He damns
with faint praise the enterprises of
well meaning people, as they arc
not just the right sort of folks for
him to associate with to assist in
working out their projects, however
commendable these may be. What
is wrong ought surely to be righted
and might be righted with little
effort, but tho croaker is not there
when the roll of active volunteers
is called. The croakers w ere ex
ceeding wise in military tactics when
General Grant was concentrating
the armies of the Republic, but they
were not in those armies their skins
were too tender. The soldiery did
tho fighting and saved the Union,
tho croakers knew how it could have
been done better, but displayed
their usual enterprise in doing
nothing. The Kingdom in which
we live is not so far removed from
the rest of the world as to be out
of reach of the croaking clement.
Anyone expecting croakers who
arc not wanting in this commu
nity to effect improvements in
politics, religion, morals, or man
. ners, will have to live a long time to
see his anticipations realized,
M, Plateau, a physiologist of
Ghent, has decided, after experi
mentation, that an, fusect not able
to distinguish one object from
another by its outward shape. This
explains why the mosquitos do not
discriminate between persons en
gaged in useful toil and those who
aro only killing time.
It lias been suggested that a
Christmas Tree be gotten up at tho
Queen's Hospital for the amusement
and profit of its unfortunate inmates.
Upon inquiry of the Purveyor and
his assistant, we learn that they ap
prove of the suggestion and will
heartily endorse it by all the aid
and assistance in their power to
render. Contributions in the shape
of useful articles of dress, per
fumery, cutlery, etc., should be very
acceptable and we trust that a pro
per response may be met w ith in
such a worthy cause.
A calm November moonlight night
in Honolulu is something that no
one can afford to leave out of his
calculations when figuring on the
elementary phenomena of a blissful
existence on this planet. The at
mospheric conditions aro absolutely
perfect. Liquid music floating
through the air from the open doors
and windows of private residences,
intermingling with the exuberant
harmonies reaching afar from tho
Royal Hawaiian Band, are the sounds
that regale tho car of the nocturnal
pedestrian; while the solid repose
of mind produced by the combined
action of silence and melody is an
expciicncc that may be enjoyed but
can hardly be described.
