Honolulu has not passed
through such a siege of hot
weather in years as wo had n
week ago; tho present relief
may be only temporary and
the" hot spell may return at
During warm weather some
people's ideas go to cold drinks,
others to ice cream. To buy it
means money, to make it
means economy. Freezers vary
as everything else tho Gotu
and tho White Mountain
are so much alike you cannot
tell the difl'erence except in the
price if you buy in other shops.
With us tho White Mountain,
which has the longest pedigree,
is the cheapest; it's tho way
we buy. Other stores charge
more for it than wo do becauso
they don't buy right. We sell
thorn varying in size from one
to six quarts.
Garden Hose is as plentiful
with Us as tho stars in tho
heavons and wo havo it in pure
rubber and cotton. It's garden
fixing weather. Yard brooms
arc needed and wo havo them.
White Bros." Portland Ce
ment don't belong in the garden
except for walks. But wo
have a stock for sale.

"I take pleasure in testifying to
tho prc.it benefit; 1 derived from
Ayer's Sarsaimrllln. I suffered
from eruptions on my face of a very
irritating and vexatious nature.
For n considerable time I experi
inciiled wllli various so-called blood,
medicines, but without any allevia
tion of my trouble. At last, your
famous Sarsanarilla being strongly
recommended to me, 1 began to use
it, and after taking two bottles it
was most gratifying to see and feel
tlie effect in allaying tho irritation
and reducing tho eruptions. When
I hud used tlirco bottles the erup
tions disappeared altogether, with
out leaving a mark on my face, and
I havo never been troubled with
anything of tho kind since."

Among llio visitors to Auckland

Eurico Alberto JD'Albertis, of
Genoa, fonnorly a couiiuiindor in
tho Italian Navy, but Uotf of the
Italian Royal Nnvy Besorve, says
the Auckland Herald of AuguBt 5.
Ab Captain D'Albcrtis js now in
tho Hnwniinn Islands, the, whole
interview will bo interesting to
rendors of tho Bulletin. Jt pro-
coeds as follows: Ho arrived hero
from a tour of tho South Sen Isl
ands by tho S. S. Corinna.
A Herald representative inter
viewed Cnptnin D'Albertis yester
day, and ho courteously gave him
all tho information in his power.
'This is not your first visit to
Row Zealand, I believe?' Baid our
'No,' replied Captain D'Alber
tis, 'My first visit waB in 1879,
when I was accompanied by Dr.
Bicchari, an Italian botanist. AVo
arrived at tho Bluff, and traveled
from thonco through both islands
to Auckland. Our object waB for
eign travel, and also to mnko
botanical and entomological col

Australin,nud on to Torres Straits
and Sinuuporo on n similnr mis

Bicchari going to Sumatra, while
I wont to China, visiting Pckin,
and also the country adjoining tho
Groat "Wall of China. From
China I wont on to Japan, then
beginning to give promise, of n
brilliant future. After a trip to
'Frisco, and thence through tho
United States, I went to tho
Isthmus of Pannmn, to make some
investigations. Thonco went to
Lima, in Peru, and then returned

An editorial note in tho Bulle
tin leu days ago, referring to tho
movement for establishing a
memorial in honor of (he authors !
of ocean telegraphy, called atten
tion to the fact that the name of
tho real originator of ocean tele
graphy was omitted from tho ap
peal on tho subject issued in Lon
don. Since thou au Eastern

contains a letter quoting, from a
loading financial paper, nn nrticlo
that appearod several years ago,
which gives positive proof that to
tho late Frederick Newton Gis

having originated transatlantic
The proof is given in extracts
from letters of John W. Brett to
Mr. Gisborne, dated in London in
tho years lSo'2, 185! and 1851, and
in a letter to him from Hon.
Joseph Howe, dated London, Fob.
12, 18(57, the year after tho Atlan
tic cable was restored to working
order. Mr. Brett was the sub
merger of tho first European sub
marine cable between Dover and
Calais in 1851, while Mr. Gis
borno himsolf submerged tho first
American subiuarino cablo be
tween Prince Edward Island nnd
New Brunswick in 1852. Mr.
llowo was Nova Scotia's greatest
statesman, who won responsible
government for that province after
a bitter contest with tho represent
atives of British crown rulo. His
importance as a witness iu this
case lies in the fact that ho whs a
member of tho government that
Mr. GiBbomo interested in tho
subject of telegraphic communi

Mr. Brett's letters to Mr. Gis
borne: London, July 12. 1852.--Major
Curmichafll Smith, a friend of
your Hon. Mr. Howe, has just
called and givon mo your plan.
London, May 2(i, 185:3. Aro
you now prepared to co-operato in
oponing up telegraphic communi
cation between Newfoundland and
Loudon, July 8, 185U. On my
return from Paris I found your

our joint names an exclusive
privilege for establishing a sub
marine telegraph between New

whether, as agreed, this 1b to be
carried out between us as Brett &

Mr. Howo began his letter in
theso words: "Without desiring

disappointment in not seeing any
mention of your unmo, ns 1 have
reason to believe you wore the
first pioneer of tho enterprise."
After telling of a bill passed by
his government to expend 820,000
for connecting Halifax with
Canada nnd the United Stntes by

was later bought by tho Western
Union Telegraph Company Mr.
Howo said :
