The Hnwniinu Islmuls fieom to
be destined by utitnro for n hotor
ogoupous populntion nnd tlio un
easiness about tlio country's
future, and about tho question to
which race it will belong, is a sort
of misunderstanding. The varie
ty of climates presents anoxcellont
opportunity to thoso who are and
will bo at tho wheol of our Bmall
political ship to prove that a har
monious and peaceful community
of human beings, composed of
various races and colois, is not
a mere dream for a progressive
Whereas our low-lands, owing
to their dopressivo climate, are
best fitted for tho colored racos,
tho mountains and plateaus nro
admirably adapted for the whito
man. Avaiietyof climatic con
ditions admits all sorts of cultures
and thero is no cause for strife.
While a Chiunman toils in the
mire of his rice-fields below, a
nntivo upon his taro nnd banana
patches at tho bottom of valleys
and along the orcoks, a white inau
mny grow coffee and other articles
higher in the mountains. Accord
ing to Iiaoul & Sugout, tho authors
of an exhanstivo French worJc on
tropical cultures, coffee grows the
best in such places only in tho
tropics, where a white man can
breathe freoly, be healthy and
Tho safety from malaria is
found on these islands only at
certain altitudes, which naturally
varies according to many condi
tions of BoiL, declivity, exposure
to sun and wind, etc., but which,
at loast for the leeward side, will
nverago about 500 feet above tho
soa-lovol. Brora what was said it
iB obvious that it iB hiefly dry
ground, or at lewst the ground where
water has no chances to stay, that
tho settlor must look for his resi
dence Settling nt the bottoms
of gulches and valleys, ao well as
on tho borders of rivers and
streams, must be avoided, since
every gulch and valloy represents
a trough, whoso bottom iB natural
ly pormeated with the drainngo of
tho Burrouuding slopes and moun
tains. It is usually too wet and
rich in organic matter. Sides of
tho hills as well as small olova
tions at tho bottoms of valleys
present much hotter conditions.
For tho leeward side of the Islands
tho abundance of wild, luxuriant
growth of prickly pear Opuntia
tuua is a good indication of dry
ness of soil and of its fitness for
Tho inclination of tho ground
must bo as rapid as consistent
with comfort. As for tho chnrnoter
of tho soil tho situation of tho wator
proof clay is of considerable im
portance. If this stratum iB on tho
surfaco nnd presents suilicient in
clination, waters havo no chance
to permeate tho ground at all; if
it is deep under tlio porous.super
iioial soil, tlio fermentation in the
depth will not affect tho atmos
phere; but if it is not fnr from
the surface tho whole overlying
vogotoblo gronnd is sure to be a
sourco of mischief. Porosity of
tho ground is a valuable quality
only in combination with declivi
ty. On the plains, whore there is
no declivity or not suilicient of it,
porosity will prove ob
noxious, since combined with
moisture it givos so much larger
surfaco whore organic subshinces
como in contact with tho air, for
monfc and putrofy. Such condi
tions nro prosented by our vnst
coral fields near the shores. On
tho contrary volcanic ashes, vol
ennio sand, a-a, light, porous
vogotablo dotritus, covoriiifj tho
slopes of tho mountains, owing to
declivity, aro good plocos for
living in spito of quiintitios of
rain; utmospherio waters either
run down tho nlopos or quickly
disnppoar in the depths. Such
nro for instance tho slopes of
Punchbowl and other hills Htir
louudiiitf the city of Honolulu,
such is Hilo nnd the largo por
tion of tho Volcano roud on tho
Island of Hawaii.
Although climatic conditions
of tho leoward and windward side
differ considerably, both aro
equal healthy, nnd discritnina
tion must be nnulo only in
consideration of some special
health - requirements. People
with Bcrofulous or tuberculous
taint ns well as rheumatics will
feel the best in tho dry, sunny,
moderately elevated and uell i
sheltered from winds leoward
valloys. Tlio aegroo ot elevation
required for tho windward side is
somewhat larger than for tho leo
ward. As for tho altitude tho otio bo
tween 500 and 4000 foet is tho
best for a white mnu. Uolow COO
thoro aro always chances to fall
within the reach of malaria.
Aboo 4000 the boil uuully is too
poor to bo fit for anything oxcopt
n cnttlo ranch. NeuraBthonics
and malarics will do well to seek
higher altitudes within given
limits. For healthy peoplo 500
feet on a good sloping ground is
perfectly sufficient, at least for
tho leeward side. No rulo what
ever can bo laid for asthmatics.
Porsons with depressed, melan
cholic nnd hypochondriac features
will be1 better suited upon sunny,
dry leeward or Kona elevations.
Thoso suffering from dry,
atrophia forms of oatarrliB of
ovory description will feel bet
ter in sheltored places upon
ol ovations within the rnin-boltliko
Of tho two Hawaiian cities Hilo
is healthier than Honolulu, al
though Honolulu could be rond
ored quite ns healthy, if not
hoalthier, if the govoinment Innds
upon tho neighboring mountain
elopes wore surveyed, divided in
lots and offered for free exchange
against those on tho plains, now oc
cupied with residences. Thus resi
donco quarters could gradually bo
moved to a proper, healthy place
and plains surrendered partly for
the oxtension of the business part
of the town, partly for parks, rac
ing grounds and tho liko. Tlio
establishment of an oleotric rail
way communication would ren
der tho connection between
both so much oasier. There
can bo no objection to
leaving business quarters whero
they are now located, since, us I
have montionbd, the most of the
peoplo will find it consistent with
their health interests to attend to
thoir vocations on tho plains in
tho day time, provided nights aro
spent in n less clangorous placo.
It hardly will bo necessnry to
raovo all tho residences, bocnuso
even among whites thoro aro some
fortunate peoplo possessing con
siderable immunity. It matters
only to givo opportunity to those,
who have none, to get a healthior
place for abode. The peoplo own
Buch oxtonsivo tracts of vacant
land upon tho slopes of tho neigh
boring mountains, that thoro is no
reason why this could not bo done.
To havo parks on tho hills and rosi
donco quartors upon swampy
plains, instead of tho rovorse, isnn
absurdity for a tropical country.
Conconiing vogetation we must
say, that in n placo woll solocted
for a residouco vegetation is
of great benefit. It keep
tho houso cool and shaded from
south; if thoro is sufficient slope,
it keeps tho ground still drier, ab
sorbing moisturo aud evaporating
it into tho atmosphoro through its
largo folingo surface. It keeps
the atmosphoro purer, loss dry
and healthier; it proteots from
winds and malaria carried by them
from unhealthy plains. Upon
Bwamps and plains unfit for resi
dence tho pro3onco or nbsonco of
vegotation is a very secondary
mattor. Eucalyptus and similar
soil-drying trees nro cortainly de
sirable aud beneficial. What is
roally required from vegetation
on the plaius is that in drying tho
soil, thoy Bhould not deprivo it of
a certain amount of sun and von-

Qonornl talked interestingly ou
things that had especially attract
ed his attention in Japan aud
"Next to tho official objects of
our trip," said he, "I think thero
was nothing that interested mo
raoro than tho country districts of
Japan. The perfection of farming
throughout Japan is something
marvelous. Farms aro laid out
and cultivated just liko gardens.
"Japan is a vory pretty country
iu its bcenory. It seomed to mo a

tonsivo crop in that lino is rice.
All sorts of vegetables nro culti
vated in beds laid out in regular
garden fashion. Labor is bo cheap
in that country. Agricultural
laborers aro paid in Mexican dol
lars or yen equivalent to amounts
ranging from $3.50 to $1.50 or
$4.80 of our money a month.
"I used toi fool somo pity for
Chinese working iu tho heat of
our cnuo fields for $15 a month,
but I saw them working much
harder in their own country for
less than $5 a month.They snvo half
of what they mako here and send
or carry it homo.
"Hongkong and Yokohnma aro
vory lively shipping ports. It is
astonishing tho number of ocean
stenuiors that frequent them. Tho
day wo arrived at Hongkong I
accompanied a party to tho Peak,
an elevation overlooking tho oity.
l counted torty-nvo ocean steam
ers in tho harbor, while there
woro innuniorablo other craft,
such as sailing vessels, junks,

know thoro nro no wharves thoro.
Steamers aro lndon uud unladon
by moans of lighters, which enn
bo used on both sides of tho ship

litis method is more economical
than handling freight at wharvos.

many lino buildings in thono
cities, out in the towns of Japan,
gonerally, tlm buildings nro low
on nccount of earthquakes. Hong

good many being ot four stories.
"In the intoiior towns thu streets
aro narrow oven whore tho build
ings aro on a largo scale. I had
hoard of it before and scarcely
bolioved it, but iu Canton, a city
ot about 1,500,000 population, I

Lowers & Cooko hnvo rocoivod
something in tho way of lawn
Bprinklers which is a truly sur
prising invention. It consists of a
revolving pprinklor connected to a
small truck with threo wliools on
a triangular baso. Tho front
wheels are cogged and tho small
ono at tho rear acts as a steering
apparatus The force of tho water
causes tho spriukler to rovolvo
and an attachment underneath is
so arranged ns to turn tho wheels
so that tho machine propels itself
forward, its speed being regulutod
by the simple turning of a screw.
By tho uso of a small iron
handle in the back, working
in a sort of slot, tho roar
wheel is set at any desired angle,
within n certain radius, bo that
tho machine iB made to travel in a
circlo of any diameter botweon

sprinkler is sot to nccommodato
any length of hose from 20 to 120
foot, so that whon it has travolod
n distance equal to tho length of
tho hoso it stops automatically.
One may sot tho mnchiuo in the
morning adjusting it, say, to
travel in a circlo 50 foot in din
motor. It will go round aud
round all day without a particle
of attention, at tho rato of speed
to which it happens to bo gnuged,
climbing terraces and passing
over minor obstructions without
