Anico-lookinp white girl of Honolulu
in Now Bedford -Looking
for her parents,
In Honolulu, about sixteeu and a
half years ago, was horn a white
girl, and the first night of her exis
tence she was smuggled over the
mountains into Waianac nnd kept
there in scciot. A year or two had
passed away, when the child was
(nought to Honolulu and put into a
boarding-school. Later she was
sent to Waialua whote her schooling
was continued. The child was be
coming a comely Miss of sweet dis
position, when she was 8inuglcd off
to Maui. She had never seen her
father and was taught to regard the
woman who managed her. as her
mother. Time rolled on and the
girl became a young woman, pre
possessing in appearance and mod
est in demeanor. The woman who
had charge of the young lady took
her in a sailing vc!;se.l to San Fran
cisco and there abandoned her to
the vulgar care of a worthless Por
tuguese man. This man took thu
girl to C.ipe Verde Islands, whole
she was again abandoned. Another
Portuguese tooka fancy for the
girl and claiming to be her father,
wanted to take possession of her ;
but a reverend gentleman discover
ed the girl, and took her to his home in
New Bedford, where the girl now
is. lie is trying to find her pa
rents by letters to Honolulu.

At the request of tho Minister for
Lands of Queensland, Mr. Samuel
Grimes, M.L.A., has written the
following short treatise upon Arrow
root Cultivation and Manufacturing.
"Arrowroot is prepaied from two
species of plants, which thrive re
maikably well in Queensland, de
signated in botany Maranta arun
dinacea, and Cauna cdulis. The
first-named thrives best iu sandy
loamy soils, and attains the height
of about 2ft., bearing at maturity a
small while flower, something similar
to the blossom of the potato. The
arrowroot is prepaied from tubers
which cluster around the roots of
the plant, and are from 3iu. to 8in.
in length and about liu. or Uin. in
diameter. This kind is the same as
is pioduced in the Bermudas, hut
owing to the difficulty of manufac
ture its cultivation is now almost
abandoned in Queensland. The
Canna edulis, or purple vaiiety, is
now commonly grown, and has been
found to tin ivu well on the alluvial
scrub lands on the bunks of various
rivers from the Brisbane to the En
deavour, including nearly the whole
eastern seaboard of the colony. The
stalks of this kind sometimes grow
to the height of 8ft., and bear a
scarlet flower, which is followed by
a small seed-pod, by the seeds very
seldom come to maturity. It is pro
pagated by planting one of tho
binaller bulbs found growing at tho
bottom of tho stems.
"Mode of Cultivation. If tho
portion of the laud to be planted is
ulear of trees it is ploughed In ridges
about -10ft. wide, and thoroughly
pulverised with harrow and sculller:
this will give room for nine rows 5ft.
apart, leaving Oft. for the iow in
which the by-furrow comes. Shallow
furrows or drills 5in. deep are run
with the plough, and bulbs about
tho size of a small apple aro placed
dft. Gin. apart iu the drill, and then
covered by turning a funow from,
each side on to the lop of the bulbs.
Alter-i'iiltivalion Is cnriiod on by
keeping it clear of weedo by means
of horii-hoes or sculller. ' When it
reaches thu height of about 3 It. the
space between tho rows v'shotiUl bo

turned up with a onc-horso plough,
throwing tho soil towards the plant,
and leaving tho furrow in tho mid
dle. Nothing then remains to bo
done until it is dug up for manufac
ture. When new scrub land is in
tended to bo planted, tho scrub 13

deep being mnde with n mattock,
the bulb placed in it and covered
up, and then kept clear of weeds by
frequent hoeing. Tho time for
planting extends from the end of
August to the beginning of January.
"Manufacturing. The article of
conuncice is manufactured from tho
tubers or root stocks found adhering
to the stalks of tho plant on the sur
face of the ground, sometimes up
wards 501b. weight being obtained
f 10111 one plant. The season for
manufacture begins in July and
Hhotild close about the cud of Octo
ber, as by that time tho root stocks
burst forth and grow vigorously;
and as the new plant grows to the
same extent the arrowroot becomes
deficient iu quantity and quality.
"Mode ol Preparing the Hoots for
the Mill. When the tubers have
come to maturity, which is usually
nine or ten mouths after planting,
the stalks of the plant arc cut off as
close as possible to the tubers with
a cane knife or strong reaping hook.
They are then raised with a grub
bing hoc or mattock, and boys are
employed separating them, care
being taken to knock off all the soil
adhering to them. They are then
thrown into carts or wagons to bo
conveyed to the mill while quite
fresh, as the colour of the manufac
tured article will be seriously affect
ed if the bulbs aro allowed to re
main exposed to the sun and weather
before being ground up.
"Machinery. A (i-li.-p. cngino
will be required to work an arrow
rout mill capable of turning out a
ton of arrowroot per diem ; other
machinery needed will bo a root
washer, grind'mg-uiill, cylinder,
sieves for separating the farina from
the pulp and fibre, and a centrifru
gal for drying. The root washer is
a tough 10ft. long, Oft. deep, and
2ft. in diameter, having a half-circular
bottom through which a stream
of water is constantly miming. A
spinder having pegs placed din.
apart of sufficient length to reach
within lin af the bottom and sides
of the trough, revolving in a horizon
tal position, the pegs working
amongst the bulbs thrown into the
trough, thorughly cleanses it of all
dirt, at the" same time forcing the
bulbs to the eud of the trough,
where a wooden rake is so fixed as
to push the bulbs oifc of the trough
as they come to it into an elevator,
which delivers them into the hopper
of the mill. The mill or grinder is
a wooden drum 2ft. Gin. on the face,
and 2ft. in diameter, covered witii a
sheet of galvanished iron punched,
and so placed on the drum as to
show the burr on the outside. This
drum, rovolving at a great speed,
and having a stream of water fall
ing on it from the tanks fixed above
it, grates up the bulbs as they fall
into the hopper, the puly and water
passing through into sieve No. 1,
this is a cylinder 8ft. long, having
the bottom half perforated witli
holes about tne size of a No. 7 wire
nail ; the beater revolves within the
sieve, which forces the farina and
water through the perforations the
beater being somewhat of a screw
forces the pulp and fibre out of the
end. The farina and water falling
into sieve No. 2 11 similar one to
No. 1, with the bottom of perforated
copper, having holes a little larger
than a pin the process is repeated.
After passing through , sieve No. 2
it runs along a trough 2ft. wido and
Gin. deep and 70ft. long, set to a
dead level, tho farina depositing of
tho bottom of the trough as the
water runs away. The farina set
tled at the bottom of the trough is
dug out, passed through sundry
sieves, and washings by hand, in
tubs, and again left to subside.
When sufficiently firm it is dug out
and passed through a certrifugal to
drive all the water from it, and is
convej'ed to a place away fiom dust
and smoke, to be dried in the sun.
"The mode of drying after it
comes from the centrifugal is by
spreading it on calico laid upon mar
supial netting stretched and fastened
upon wooden frames, 2ft. Gin. from
the ground; by this means tho wind
dries from underneath as well as
the su above. It is not advisable
to trust to tho sunt alone for drying,
as sometimes a succession of cloudy
or showery days will cause the ar
rowroot to go sour beforo it is dry,
and thtiB become unsaleable. A
drying-house should be erected cap
able of holding about three tons of
arrowroot in case of unfavourable
"As tlio value of arrowroot i1ct
pends so much upon thu colour and
quality, the greatest care should be
exercised during tho whole process
of manufacture, ami tho clearest

times handmills arc used for making
small quantities for home consump
tion. Tho quantity produced, from
an acre of land varies from 15owt.
to UOowt. The principal establish

BOOKS THAT ARE HARMFUL.
"It comes from reading," ob
served the oculist.
"Yes; but why should Germans
ho more near-sighted than Ameri
cans? Do thej' read more?"
"I don't think they do, but it is
tho kind of books they read that
causos their vision to lie defective."
"The German books arc printed
in the dazzling old English type
which tries the eyes moro than any
other type in use in civilized coun
tries. It requires such close scru
tiny that tho eyes are invariably
strained. So well known is this
fact that recently the Austrian Miu
istcr of Piiblic'lnstruction issued a
very sensible decree forbidding the
usu of books printed in small type in
the public schools. Now, with Am
erican school-books this would not
bo so necessary, but German .books
to be harmless must be printed in
large, boldface characters. There
is a large party of reformers in Ger
many who aie striving to have the
types of that nation officially
changed to Roman, and the use of
English script has largely taken the
place of the German script in cor
respondence. Educated Germans
read one style ns readily :is the other,
and the former is growing rapidly
in popularity. It will not be long
before all books will appear iu the
same characters, if not in the same
language, and when that time comes
the eyes of succeeding generations
will be stronger than those of the
present, but 1 don't apprehend that
this will happen early enough to in
jure my business. Reform come
slowly, and physicians will find
their hands full until the dawn of
