Rare Plant Which Blooms
in the Vicinity of
he Truthful Ronton Why mm East
ern Professor Loft Here With
out a Porfool Specimen.
Among the many tourists who have
been alt runted to these shores by tho
far-reaching fame of our incompara
ble climate, lnaguilleent scenery and
stupendous Volcano was a man well
known in Hcicntific circle in the Kiist
an eminent botanist whom we will
call Professor Smith, not because
that is ids name, but because lie
would probably send some one to
kill tho writer if Ids right' nninu
should bo published in connection
with the following story. At any
rate, the botanist whom we will call
by the beautiful and rare name of
Smith was really here, and the occur
rence which the following will des
cribe was an actual aud recent one.
The professor, while ostensibly
here on a sight-seeing and pleasure
trip, still kept an open eye for any
thing rare and curious in the botani
cal line, being an enthusiast in that
particular study. In prosecuting his
researches among the many kind
hearted and hospitable people of this
"Paradise of the Pacilic," lie was in
formed by an old resident of the
kingdom probably the. iiithor of the
article on the "Demon Tree" which
recently appeared in a morning
paper of the existence of a rare and
beautiful plant, which the writer will
call the Kpiuribus Conieatibus Holly
hock, because, not being up in
botany, he does not know its other
name. It was in the searcli for this
uncommon and lovely plant that the
little incident occurred which termi
nated Professor Smith's visit in our
good Queen's domain not many
He had already found one of the
plants, but as it was an imperfect
specimen, had expended considerable
time in the effort to find another. In
his seaich he was accompanied by a
vade-mecum in the shape of one ot
those 18-year-old Hawaiian-Chinese-l'laolc
boys who keep right on grow
ing till they ate six feet six inches
tall and as much as four inches thick.
It was one of Hawaii's most charm
ing moniiiius. The professor and his '
faithful but attenuated assistant bad
renewed the quest for the lovely I
conieatibus. They had with them a
horse and buggy from "GeniulJohn's" j
which the chambermaid at the livery
stable had said was afraid of nothing i
lut aii electric railway: so they felt ,
very safe. The. little birds were sing-
fug in the trees or "laying for" the j
earnest, and agile grasshopper. The
breath of the Mowers, intermied !
with an occasional whiff from a rural
Chinese lu:g or duck ranch, was on ;
the breeze. '
AM. WA- I.OVKI.Y.
Long mid faithfully the professor
a'nd Ids well-meaning but long assist- ,
ant labored in the wilds of Knliki-uka.
At last - oh joyous sight! a bcauti- '
fill specimen ot the fragile conieatibus ,
was discovered ; but between the ex
ploring parly and the lovely creature
of nature was a wide taro patch all j
piepared for the planting of thatsuc- .
culeiit vegetable of the tropics. j
How to reach it was the question. I
The patch is about twelve feet wide !
at its narrowest portion, and looking '
at the assistant's lemarkable length '
of legs one would suppose that he I
could easily step across, but the pro
fessor proposes that no rude, irrcver- ,
cut hand shall gather the priceless '
treasure. After some consideration i
it is decided he shall jump the patch, j
the menial going lirst to show how '
easy it is. It should be noted here, I
as the plot thickens, that the pro- !
lessor weighs something more than j
J00 pounds and had not jtijnped for
many a year. !
The horse is left to aire for itself '
while the feat is essayed. First j
goes the long assistant. Ah, that is I
a glorious jump! The slough and '
several feet of bunk are left behind j
the ambitious leaper ere he finally
touches earth again. It is very
easy. " I
And now it is the professor's turn, i
Ho steps buck several feet from tho '
edge of the mud hole. He measures I
the distance carefully with his eyes.
"Ho starts, lie moves, lie seems to I
feel a thrill of life run through his I
keel." Like a liawk upon its prey, i
like the wolf upon the fold, the pro
fessor came down upon the tnro !
patch. Hetermgiation in his eye, ,
victory in his air. Alus for the
learned gentleman! Just at 'the ,
nearer edge ol tho taro patch was a ,
snag. It was a quiet, untibsuming '
snag, but so much dopended upon it,
then. Uudei lull head of steam the j
ritOIT.SSOH GAMK DOWN, '
He struck the snag, there was an
awful sound a- of the heavens falling '
and the botanist and the lino patch
wore one. No one could tell which i
was the botanist anil which the taro j
patch. He struck full length aud
swept the Inro patch from one side to .
the other. Mud wns in his nostrils,
in hm eyes, up Ids sleeves, down ids i
And to crown all, where he ran his
head into the farther shore was the
rare anil lovely cotiicatihiH. It was
softer than the professor's head and
it forever disappeared in mud when
the ocietitilio gentleman struck it,
Up to the time when tho professor
aiosc, wiped the mud out of Ids
mouth and said his morning prayer,
the horse had looked upon the opera-
lion in mild surprise, but the gentle
man's remarks were too much even
for ids equanimity and he wont home.
Ho stood not upon the order of his
going, but went. The buggy was
left nt the Hi at convenient tree, and
tlte harness in various places and
pieces farther on.
The lover of botany and Ids long
assistant walked back to town. They
were not fond of walking, but they
walked anyway. Arriving on the
outskirts of the city tho professor
slopped in a convenient banana patch
and the assistant went on, purchased
a new suit of clothes and carried
them to him. They weio donned and
the professor returned to his hotel.
No doubt many readers of this
paper will remember a portly gentle
man who came to "do the Islands
some time back, and who unaccount
ably changed bis mind and returned
to the Coast by the same steamer.
The above little story explains the
mystery. He did not lake away a
perfect specimen o( the K plurlbus
Conieatibus Hollyhock, but said he
did not care for one. Ho said the
pursuit of botany is a pleasant one,
but it lias Us drawbacks in the Hawai
ian Islands. Pal.
..Messrs. Cage & Sherman, of Alex
ander, Texns, write us regarding a
remarkable cure of rheumatism there
as follows: "Tho wife of Mr. Win.
Pruitt, lite Postmaster here, had been
bed-ridden with rheumatism for sev
eral years. She could get nothing
to do her tiny good. We sold her a
bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Halm
and she was completely cured by it"
use. We refer any one to her to
verify this statement." ,"() cent bot
