gaged in shunting, my foot caught
between tho rails, and roy leg was
fractured below tho lcnoe. It healed
in time, but I havo been troubled
over since with swollen veins, and
havo been obliged, at times, to wear
n bandage. About a year ago it be
camo much "worse, and I feared I
should bo obliged to gtvo up my
work. A friend advised mo to try
Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I did so, and
after taking four bottles tho swell

And who is little "Ah Pirn?" for
he is very (limimitivc; but for all
Unit, ho is as wide awake, and as
well alivo as a little bobolink; and
ho's a beauty and a true prince.
"We are quite sure ho was "born
with a silver Bpoon in his mouth,"
and that all his younger days (for
Prince Pan "A)i" means noth
ing at all in tho Chinese name
is now four years old and goes to
"St. Paul's Scho6l" on tho island
of Hawaii, tho largost island of
tho group, as you likely know,)
woro a beautiful skull cap of silk,
embroidered by hand with silken
threads of all tho colors of tho
rainbow and moro little birds
and butterflies and flowers being
on it, and that Jio had jackets of
red-figured Bilk, for red is tho
lucky color, and lovely drosses,
nnd an old woman for nurse, and
all tho rest that tho children of
tho rich aro supposed to havo. But
now, ho is ever so little, and can't
tip the scale hardly at thirty
pounds wo do beliovo; but ho is as
lithe and as straight as an Indian
and his little head is well-poised,
his eyes clear and cunning as a
wood peckois. Very omphatically
and very distinctly, after that two
months of English teaching, ho
salutes us with loud tonos and the
upward inflective "Goo' mornin'
Misscot;" and in his little striped
stockings and anklo tics he trudges
off to Ins seat, first taking great
care to set his wino bottle, which
ho is swinging along by the string
of its neck, down in a "reserved
seat" in one corner. This said
bottlo is half full of vory plain
and vory wank tea; for II. K. H.
would not think of going homo to
his lunch half a block, so to speak,
off. Oh, no. Ho likes his school
and when ho comes ho (loos not
dopart until ho sees not a big boy
behind. Then, ho grabs up his
beloved bottlo and shouting back,
tho last thing, "Goo' night Miss
cot!" makos quickly for his
father's store It would not do
for any boy to cast an eye on his
bottlo, for then our little man
would quickly doublo his fist, as
big iib a small potato, and strike
out true from tho shoulder. At
intervals through tho day ho goes
for that bottlo, and with his httlo
legs apart and both hands clonoh
od tightly about tho nock ho turns
it up for a draught. Wo never
seo liim at such times. Two
months ago, and boforo wo had
acquired the tongue of this mite
of a Mandarin, wo were guilty of
misscalling him, "An Pang"
and we suppose that his fine ear
being irritated by our determined
g's, he looked at us vory gravoly
ono day and curiously, aB if he
woro puzzled to make us out, and
said vory quietly "Ah Pun."
AYo found that thoro woro other
lottors than "p" und "q" that wo
must mind, or rather, not mind.
But wo flatter ourselves that we
will dosorvo no moro correction
from this foot and a half of Orien
tal. This school bolongs to tho Ang
lican Mission of St. Paul to the
Chinese. There aro at present
31 Chinese, natives and half whites,
girls nnd boys, in attendance; with
ono teacher of Ohineso and ono of
English. Ton aro now being pro
pared for confirmation, tho Bishop
("Willis) -being duo hero tho first
Sunday after tho Epiphany. These
children aro familiar with tho
English Prayor-book in Chinese,
but will soon know something of
it in English.
Whilo this Northern district of
Kohalu is tho Bin ul lest, at the
same timo it is tho mo.st import
ant. It is hero a magnificont
green country, cooler than Hono
lulu; tho enno is looking very
thrifty this boubou and those
planters aro in high good humor.
Whontho cano is woll all is well
financially speaking, money is
easy, money is spent, wages go
up, whistling is in tho air and
times aro not "hard." Bo
twecn us and tho sea is only a
field of this same cane, coming
into tassel, and wo can almost
throw a stone to hit tho stenmors,
for it is deop water closo in. The
Kinau for Honolulu from nilo is
passing now, and will bo duo
thoro in twenty hours. Farther
down the const wo can seo tho
plantation of Niulii; they aro
ready for"grindiug," and tho tall
chimnoy is smoking all tho day
ton hours. By that whistlo at 5
a. m., wo can sot our clocks. In
front of us aro hill and dalo and
gulches many; and if wo go to thq
upland a bit wo can look across to
Maui, a grand painting, and oyor
to tho plantations of Kohala
"outside," and boyond them to tho
hills whore tho wild cattlo ronm
and grow an endless stretch of
verdure an omorald country, and
rich as that groon gem.

excepting it rains pitchforks and
then it's fine ovory other fow min

at 3:30 p. m. there is ono of tho
most magnificent rainbows, thero
aro protty fine ones around "our
part," with ono foot in the sea and
tho othor at Niulii, and no skimp

Pacific is as calm today as if it

and as smiling ahJ bunny ns if it

fearful irmU dontlwlealing tlo
ings farther away! and even parts
of this const havo been terribly
rough of late, and ''landings"
havo boon avoided. Hero, around
"St. Paul's" precincts, we can
boast only a few poor Chinese
stores; but2 over in "St. Augus
tine's "neighborhood" is a store
what is a store; and a regular
postoflico with boxes and a "win
dow" nnd all; whilo hero wo pitch
our mail into a bag a tho China
man's. Wo woro nbout to obsorvo,
only that postoflico Btood in our
way, that at that storo wo can
spend nil our money in a fow
minutes, nnd get trusted for any
thing from a silk stocking to a
tea slrainor; but ono needs to fnco
the music on pay-day. It's a
"nice" storo, whon you haven't
soon a storo sinco tho day
you camo to Hnwnii. Wo
like that storo or wo would
not spond any timo talking
nbout it. Whon wo do not npprove
of n thing wo do not lnud it so
very much, but lose our tonguo.
It is an nwfully nico storo; wo
bought throe protty tea-cups and
throo coffoo Baucors to match them,
tea saucers all smashed; and some
blnck stockings, chenp really as in
San Francisco. And wo bought a
pitcher (jug), and then suddenly
wo bought another, only sevonty
fivo cents, because the olerk, and
ho htiB boon schooled Bomewhoro
in tho polite art (Iolani), said ho
thought that ouo was protty, and
wo know it was; then we bought

PosxsaitirT: A jug is mudo of
stono or sometimes of earthen
waro glazed nnd baked oven not
glnzou often, and hns a snort,
chunky neck with a cork in it
and has a handle to bo sure, but
not precisely liko a pitehor, infre
quently has two handles; and that
is a jug, whoro wo wero born; and
would novor bo mistaken for a
pitehor. Thoy aro used in tho
household for vinegar, molasses,
Now England rum, "pure old Mod
ford," and so forth and tho rest.
But if England, if all Great Bri
tain, with Hawaii annexed, do
' laro, in most solemn assembly,
that a pitcher is a jug, why then
wo say: "Yes. cortninly it is
'jug;'" but, with tho mental reser
vation "It looks vory much like
a jug our protty China cream pit

Writ oi ZTIitiHlniuii Aplnt Judge
An interesting phase of tho
Sprockols' controversy camo bo
foro tho Supremo Court today,
being nothing less than a writ of
mandamus to compel Judge A. W.
Carter to hear a motion. W. R,
Castle, in tho absence of Justice
Froar, Bat on tho bonch with
Chiof Justice Judd and Justice
Whiting. The facts aro in brief
Claus Spreckols procured an
injunction in California against
the Hawaiian Commercial and
Sugar Company, forbidding that
corporation from proceeding with
its suit in equity against him in
tho" courts of Hawaii. Kinney
and Bnllou, attorneys for Olaus
Spreckolsdofondnnt in said Buit,
filed a motion in tho Circuit Court
for a Btay of proceedings in tho
Judge Carter refused to hear
tho motion, on tho ground that
Mr. Spreckels, having tied tho
hands of tho plaintiff hero, had
prevented it from being hoard.
Consequently, whilo Mr. Kinney
in tho ovont of a henriifg might
urguo his motion, opposing coun
sel would hnvo his mouth shut by
tho a action of Mr1. Sprockols in
Cnlifornin, nnd tho Judge regard
ed it as inequitable that ho should
heir but ono sido of tho motion.
Thereupon Mr. Kinney had
Judgo Carter brought beforo tho
Supremo Court by writ of manda
mus to compel him to henr tho
motion for a stay of proceedings.
Ho arguod nt length for tho writ,
nnd was opposed by Ii. A. Thurs
ton, nttornoy for Judge Cnrter.
Chief JuBtico Judd gave an oral
decision, concurred in by his col
leagues, dismissing tho writ nnd
upholding Judgo Carter's action.

SALOON8 AND TMUSON.
Tho saloon is a chronic oirondor.
Chronic violation breeds contempt
of law and leads to efforts at
nullification nnd rebellion. In
essonco it is treason. Rev. 0. W.
Snodgrass, Nowark, N. J.
THE MENIIOE DOOTillNE.
Tho Monroo doctriuo is a pivotal
truth upon which depends much
of tho futuro wolfaro of this great
pooplo and Niltion, ns woll ns its
futuro prosperity. Rev. D. J.
Burroll, Now York City.
What is tho difforenco between
so-called good society and tho de
spised low society ? Simply in
thomannor in which thoy express
their mutiny against God. Rev.
Dr. Rikor, Methodist, Wheeling,
Froo MaBoury is a groat tribu
tary to roligion. It teaches to
offor'rational horaaga to tho deity.
It teaches faith in God, hope in
immortality nnd ohnrity toward
all. Rev. S. W. Sample, Inde
pendent, Jamestown, N. Y.
I nm no believer in tho doctrine
of tho golden uges of tho past.Gold
gilds tlio prosent and tho futuro,
and in spite of nil men, environ
ments, his failings, his weakness,
his trngediqs, man is, I vorily bo
Hove, growing better. The ovoln
Hon of tho perfect mnn is pninfully
slow, but still tho trend, however
meandering, is toward the golden
gate of porfection. Rev. W. T.
Veale, Presbyterian, Jacksonville,
Exciting nnd impure litornturo
floods tho lnud, which theyouugor
peoplo road and aro fascinated.
The voluptuous life is made tho
ideal, roligion is scoffed nt and
vice enthroned. Tho sonsntional
pnpors of tho dny nmko so much
of tho salacious details of an un
savory caso and tho sin is so often
made light of, oven made tho oc
casion of efforts at humor. Rev.
E. L. Miller, Episcopalian, Scran
It may bov charity for Rocko
follor and Carnegie to erect living
monumonts in tlio shape of uni
vorsitios and libraries, but it is
not tho highest type, for their
wenltli is ncqinrcd by doubtful
methods. It is uuchristiun for,
moneyed men to seize lnrgo pioceB
of property nnd profit by.tno in
dustry of othors, without outlay
by thomsolvos. No man has a right
to got a monopoly upon anything.
Uov. T. Y. Williams, Latter
Day Saint, Council Bluffs, Iowa.
Real aristocracy novor shows
itself. It nevcjHhmkes the poor
fool uncomfortwo ' in its pres
onco, but tho hnughty manner nnd
sneering lip nro bndgos of shoddy
aristocracy, and show that in
society the scum goes to tho top

ive is better than tho cure, and a
wise seloction of associates will
prevent many soro rocrets in after
life Rev. L. M. Zimmerman,
Lutheran, Baltimore,. Md.
AN AGE OI' TADS.
This is an age of fads nnd follies,
of nielnphysical riddles nnd prol
lometicnl ideals. Tho psychologi
cal tendency of tlio human mind
has revived all tlio metaphysical
notions of tho past, and- thoy havo
boon nuimaled with higher life
and must bo mot nnd mnstored
from a scientific standpoint. Rev.
Francis E. Mason, Brooklyn, N.Y.
Wo do not believe that tho dance
ns indulged in in these days pos
sesses any element of holiness
whatever. Wo beliovo the dance
is something tho church ennnot
control, and with children who nro
allowed to dnnco it will become
such a passion that thoy will fol
low it from tho private dance to
ilaces of questionable resort.
tov. E. D. Corpontor, Rome, N.Y.
Christ would havo us oxalt the
vnluo of virtue. Tho woman is
bettor in a calico dress that has
not bartered her virtue than the
ono in silks and dazzling diamonds
that has paid tho prico of virtue
to win them. Tho woman that
has fallen into sin has as much
right to bo reinstated as man.
Rev. R. W. Jameson, Congregn
tionalist, Sioux City, Iowa.
l'OVEBTY TO WEALTH.
Tho ndyanco corps of wonlth
and business ability that is mov
ing through thiB contury is ro
cruitcd and' strengthened and
mado up from men from tho ranks
of poverty. Stewart, the' "Hum
boldt of merchants," nnd Henry
Clows, tho "Shakospoaro of bank
ers," nre world-renowned geniuses
who forged their reputations and
succossos on tho nnvil of solf
roliauco nnd onorgy. Rev. 0. A.
Onkes, Reformed, Kingston, N. Y.
Christianity is not a poor man's
roligion nor a rich man's religion.
It does not tench that Lazarus
wns tnkon to heaven because ho
was poor, but bocause ho was
pious, and that Dives was sent to
noil not becauso ho wns evil, but
because ho was menu. Christian
ity teaches liberty, paternity,
equality and that nil of us nro
brethren. Rev. P. S. Honson,
Baptist, Chicago, 111.
Tho growtli of tho church is not
keeping paco with tho growth of
tho cities. In fifty -ff 'our largo
cities statistics of six largo deno
minations show a falling off of
nbout 37 por cent. Rev. W. A.
Stanton, Baptist, Pittsburg, Pa.
Tho dangor to our Government
lios in tho groat cities which con
tain from GO to 90 per cent of for-oign-boru
population. A groat
dangor lies in placing the ballot
in tlio hands of those foreigners.
uov. Jii. u. i'atter8on, Methodist,
Jamestown, N. Y.
Sin soparates from God and
goodness. Sin perverts. Sin im
poverishes. It strips its viotiin.
It has no mercy. Sin is a hard
