VACATION DAYS IN THE TROPICS.
ui:v. t. it. o. pj nc.
OKI' 101! Till: l.AKU.
Look, look 1" exclaimed my com
liaiiion, as I sat wedged in the
crevice of a rock trying to dry my
saturated clotlics by the escaping
heat. A small river of molten lire
had suddenly burst through tho mass
below, and was coursing its way
along with convolution upon con
volution, like a ilery serpent. To
(C'Jlery serpent 1 likened it, creep
ing through the caverns of the in
fernal world. Then hissings again,
then moaning, gurgling, groaning
sounds from here and there and
everywhere, as of giants imprisoned
therein and giving vent to their in-
ard anguish by signs such as these,
till at last, worn and exhausted
through excitement and fatigue, wo
tinned our backs upon the scene,
and retraced our steps homeward.
And yet we had not seen one-half
of what we expected to sec. This
great lake of molten lava, until four
months ago, reached up lo the lop
of the very piccipice on which we
had stood, and was lilcialiy one vast
sea of liquid burnings rolling its
waves of lire like the surf alongUic
sea-shore, and dashing itself against
the rocks in spiny of llaming mist.
At that time the subterranean noises
wcican liuniltcii-ioiu moic loariiu
than those we had heard. Columns
of flame, too, leaped up, apparently
to the vciy stars, and immense
fountains of liquid flic shot up their
spray in flaming geysers. Hut at
the time of the New Zealand erup
tion, this ast lake almost entirely
ilihanneared. and only within the
last few weeks has begun to rise
again and assume anything like its
former proportions. In the course
of a few weeks more it will doubt
less be itself again, sending its luiicl
glaic along the heavens, and light
ing the manner leagues away at sea.
It was a long tug back over the
ragged surface of the crater to where
we had started. The steep declivity
which we had decended with com
parative ease seemed now lo us,
worn down thiough fatigue, inter
minable in its ascent. Would wo
ever get up? I began to doubt it;
my limbs ticmblcd beneath me ; my
heart throbbed like Ihc pulsations of
an engine, and more than once with
a feeling of dread foreboding, came
to me thoughts of the poor English
man whose monument we had passed
on tho way down. But just then a
friendly light gleamed above the
dark precipice, and in a few moments
moic I was silting befoiethc blazing
health of the Volcano House, having
safely accomplished the most thrill
ing and fatiguing leal ot my life.
Hilo, S. I., is classic in the mis
sionary annals of the church. You
doubtless remember how long years
ago, in our monthly missionary con
certs, the news from the Sandwich
Islands w as always regarded as the
choice morsel of tho evening, and
how many of those letters boro the
date of Ililo. There was the de
voted Dr. Coan, whose spir"

death was crowned with results

which have attended missionary

world. These venerable fatheis aio

Many of the descendants of the
old missionaries still lesidc scattered
here and there amid these islands,
and are among the most respected
and influential citizens of the land.
Some even, like the Judds of Hono
lulu, occupy high positions under
the Government, and their influence
js potent for good. My valued
friend, Judge Ilitelicoclc, whose
guest at this place I have the honor
to be, is the sou of a faithful and
devoted missionary who lirst settled
at Molokai, and for years preached
tho gospel there. 'When T met him
at the crater of Kilauea a few nights
since, and he urged me to come and
visit him, I felt that I would do my
self an injustice did I decline Ms
hospitnblo invitation, and every day
since hns been full of such varied
pleasures that I almost feel that 1
could spend my life among these
quie. scenes and hallowed associa
tions. Yesterday was tlic Sabbath,
and the narrow grassy roads wcie
lined with people going up to tho
house of God. The variety of color
in the dress of the natives lent a soit
of enchantment to tho scene. Tho
old chinch in which Father Coan, as
they still call him, pi cached, yet
stands, not the one originally built,
but another structure in which lie

native congregations of the islands,
thtoitgh a decrease in tho popula
tion, yet the truth as.it is in Jesus
is still held forth to goodly numbers
by native pastors. All over these
hills and dales, all over those high
mountains and through these deep
valleys, those faithful messrngers
of Christ were accustomed lo travel
on foot or horseback, and wherever
they went native congregations
gathered in crowds to hear them.

QUEER FEEDINC CUSTOMS.
A couple of ccntuiics ago most of
the Kings and Queens of Europe
partook of their principal meals in a
semi-public fashion. That is to sav.
the royal saloons were often crowded
with com tiers who simply came to
witness, and not to partake of the
royal banquet. One day at White
hall the "Mcrrio Monarch" called
to Count Grammont, who was
among the loungers, and bade him
note how his survivors, unlike those
of other European monarchs, served
him kneeling. "Oh," replied Gram
mont, with his ready wit, "I thought
they were asking your Majesty's
pardon for such a sorry dinner."
Some of the ancient Kings of
France invested certain of their im
portant banquets with a barbarous
magnificence, and as they sat at
table the nobility served them on
The Maldivian Islanders used to
take their meals in the strictest soli
tude. They would retire to tlic
most hidden parts of their houses
and close up their windows so that
they may cat unobserved. The
origin of this singular custom was
probably the fear in savage times of
being deprived of their meal by ma
rauders, and superstitious fears of
their food being bewitched by some
incantation of an enemy also con
tributed to bring about tlic feast of
solitude. Among the higher classes
there was a custom never to cat
with any one inferior in birth, riches
or dignity, and the great d:fliculty
of settling this matter of equality
left the only alternative of an un
sociable and misanthropic custom,
