As Observed by Prof. Charles Daw
barn, UncW this heading the following
witty description of the volcano of
Kilauea appears in thu Sin Leandro
(Cnl ) Standard. There i just ono
error in it, whore it savs the latest
lnva flow wn iu 1882. Thoro was a
big ono iu 1887:
i Mauna Loa, Hawaiian Islands (
! November fi, 18'J1 f
, Editor Standard: Liva is evoty
i where around mo ns i sit and writo
' by tho crater of t ho most net No vol-
cano in Uio world. Hawaii is proud
I of its giant Mntina Lnn, with ono
volcano on its side -KKX) feet above
tho set level and another mi ils
summit, at an elevation of 11,000
feet. They aro called the safely
I valves of tho world, but much of thu
1 lava is so hot that the weary tourist
I finds no safely except n he keeps
moving on. 1 just now pushed n
stick into yonder bank. It came out
i coated with liquid sulphur at a boil
' ing temperature. Everything is
weird and unreal. I lie lawu bends
as you walk, and below i'b an echo
which you feel a very unsatiifaetory
foundation for tho trail, three miles
long, by which you creep to tho
, edge of the crater where I am Bit-
( I rarely uote down a first impres
sion, and have often regretted it, so
ho re, on tho spot, I record a rather
irreverent comparison suggested by
tho scenic play a hundred feet be
low. It is not yet quito dark, and th
lake is still dimmoil by tho light of
day. But it U crossed and ro crossed
by linos of firo. Thoy aro cracks in
the lava, but they have a straugo re
gularity that someu hat rosemblos tho
map by which a dealer in roal estato
advortises his coming sale of most
valuable and eligible lots. Ono al
most expects to see somowhero a
huge sign announcing, "Building
Lots for Sale in Hell To-night!"
But tho play goes on. Fouutaius
begin to sparkle; cascades tumblo
' aim roar; geysers spout ; and pre
sently a huge wave of whito-hot
lava rolls over at least ono third of
' tho great lako whero tho lots bad
previously seemed rather uoglected
. and unsaleable. In ono corner tho
hour has come for iucreased activity,
and we hear tho "puff I puff 1" of tho
engines, with the thundering of
i plutonio hammors, evidently pound-
i mg and smashing groat blocks of
chaos into fragmonts of suitable
size for the fuel needed by the vol
cano. It is a growsomo and weird scene,
and is rendered uono the less so
when the guide tells mo that ho con
siders this rather comfortable ledge
on which I sit and writo as liable to
tumble into tho crater at any hour.
No one has yet gone to heaven or
elsewhere by this route, but the
guide says ho has often fouud the
resting spot of ono day gone on his
visit tho next. So a startling news
paper epitaph is included as one of
the possibilities of a tourist's tickot.
This volcano is presided over by
Goddess Fele, and at frequout inter
vals she sonds from the higher crater
a stream of lava that usually makos
quite a reputation for itself boforo it
coases. And thereby hangs a rather
, In the year A. D. 1882 tho last of
I thoso great lnval rivers started to
cross the Island and reach tho ocean.
I But right in its road was the ono
' seaport of the Island, the flourish-
i ing little city of Hilo. Tho inhabi
tants, both sacred and profane, na-1
' turally objected to being wiped out !
in this manner, and a battle royal
I began, just a, according to sacred
j history, a similar battle was fought
i to tho bitter ond between Elijah and
I the priests of Baal, when thu prophet
j defied tho god of the priests to set
j fire to thu sacrifice on a great
altar ho had eroded. The pray-
ors of those priests weru many
and long but too cold for the occa
sion, and the sacrifice romained un
burned. But tho prayers of the pro
phot wont straight to tho spot, and
i thoro was a grand conflagration. Of
course tho "madding crowd" joined
his church immediately, for thoro is
1 nothing so popular as success. Hero
at Hilo there was to bo a similar
battio royal, only this time the victor
was to put out a firo instead of kind
ling it. Tho missionaries and their
flocks had their InuinRs and n raved
with tho fierco forvor of tho anciout
prophet, but tho g
tinuedhor march al
oddess Pole con-
the awful Btroam was less than half
a milo from tho city a doar, good
princess of tho then royal family,
ono of tho famous lino of Kamoha
mehas, undertook to appeal to tho
goddess. So Princess Ituth Koeli
kolaui a sylph weighing ovor 800
pounds started in hor chariot,
which would bo called vulgarly an
ox-cart, only it was drawn by loving
and dovotod natives. Sbo sat flat
on the bottom of tho cart, with
her princessly limbs hanging out
behind in tho full glare of the nino
teenth century. With her wero of
ferings well known as acceptable to
the divine Fele, and when a suitable
position wasreachod tho lovely Ruth
placed the votive pig whero tho god
dess could immediately enjoy roast
pi. Iu a moment tho lava coaled
to flow and tho city wa saved.
Of t'uiirsfi tho natives beliuro m"re
firmly than over iu their good god
dess aud why Miouldn't they?
Elijah murdered all who wouldn't
believe that his God soitt tho fire..
Those gentle natives nro quito will-'
ing that tho white raco should con
tinue to make unanswered prayers.
The misionaries shouted, "Only n
coincidence!" Jut so. But tho
samo remark hits tho eve of Elijah.
Aim personally l run less to a great
respect for an unanswered prayer,
but none at all for the petition that
can neither start nor stop a fire or
do any other useful work. So Polo,
dear Tele, until further advised nc-
cept my liumblo congratulations. ,
