The Ins and Outs of It.
If you get best wear out of a coat, best work must
have gone into it. You can't get good bread out of
Moral : You can't get the best out of anything, unless
the best is in it; and the best has to be put in before it
can be taken out. Now, we have a rule to test those
sarsapaiillas with a big "best" on the bottle. "Tell us
what's put in you and we'll decide for ourselves about
the best." That's fair. Uut these modest sarsaparillas
siy: "Oh I we can't tell. It's a secret. Have faith in
the label.". . . Stopl There's one exception; one sar
saparilla that has no secret to hide. It's Ayer's. If you
want to know wh it go.'S into Ayer's Sarsaparilla, ask
youF doctor to write for the formula. Then you can
satisfy yourself th.it you get the best of the sarsaparilla
argument when you get Ayer's.

So ninny things arc adver

fthe wants of persons who de
light in giving during tho
Christmas season. Nearly
&yoiy merchant or manufac
turer advertises that his wares
are suitable for Christmas; it
doesn't inako any difference
whether it is a needle case or
a 12 ton roller. We diifer from
most merchants because we
fceliove our stock contains the
only useful articles fit to bo
put in a stocking. In these
fin do sieolc times when Santa
Claus has ceased in the minds
of anyone above a four year
old, useful and beautiful pre
sents are selected. Where is

TriiRling that you nmy be in
terested iu cycling, wo tnko the
liberty of stating to you a few
fnctfl about our wheels:
Wo uepil not troublo you with
needless description of tho World
Famod "RAMBLER" Bicycle,
which by its easy running, np
ponrnuco, strength and luBting
qualities hns won for tho milkers
a linmo world renowned.
Tho "RAMBLERS" nro equi
ped with the grwit G.&J. Detach
nblo Tiro, which since its iutro
duction to Honolulu bus proved,
by tho numbers iu use, tho most
successful aud necessary adjust
ment to a bicycle.
Wo tako great pleasure in re
conionding to our friouds tho
"RAMBLER" aud trust that in
furnishing oue to any person they
will never have occasion to regret.
Our terms are such that a bicy
cle is no longor a luxury but it
necessity iu actual saviug of timn
and money. Wo would ask you
to but call and get our figures.
As is customary nearing tho
oloso of each year, tho makers in
order to got ready for tho ensuing
year, offer tho present 189(i
wheels at reduced prices. AVo are
now prepared to givo our cus
tomers the benefit of theso raluo
tious as long as our stock holds
out. For those wishing an up to
ditto wheel of tho highest grndo,
one which wo cau guarantee to
tho fullest extent, wo would offer
tho "RAMBLER." As to im
provements for the coming season
wo would say wo anticipato none.
Such changes which may bo made
will, as has been tho pnst two
years, bo changes immaterial to
tho improvement of the wheel in
Kindly givo this some thought

'Ono of tho most entrancing
views is that at the Pali at tho mid
of Nuuanu Valloy, about four miles
from Honolulu. There are great
mountains to tho right and loft
aud thiough un opening you got
ouo,onchanting view of vitllay cov
ered with sugar plantations mid
imtmnas and in the far distance a
range of mountains and still far
iheroirtlie blno Pacific 1 okinq
liken painted sua. Tho full is over
MOO feet high. I paint
ed a picture of tho Pali which was
.niiigiil tiy Air Peacmik. At tho
Biimmit whoro I hadto paint thoro
is a whirlwind blowing at tho rate
of fifty milos an hour, sometimes
moro than that. A native on
horseback was blown over the cliff.
When I first went thoro my paints
paper and tiaps wore blown into
the air far above my head. Before
I could get a good sketch I hatl to
go six or eight times to the saino
spot. Even then I could uso only
a small bit of paper aud had to
tnko in tho scene on separate
pieces in tho faco of the galo.
An easel was out of tho
question, and it wa hard work to
hold tho points down.
"On the trip to (ho island of
Hawaii J was treated to a most
magnificent buuBct; it was tropical
aud glorious. Tho rde to tho
volcano, or mouutain of fire, I
found to bo one of tho most in
terestiim expositions, tho trail
passing through tho virgin forost
and every turn in tho road find
ing a new scene. All about us
wero wild bananas, palm trees,
forn trees, creeping plants a
picture of tropical glory, with
hero and there a collee plantation
pooping through tho forest, each
vista a beautiful sight. Farther
up the mountain the flora takes
on tho character of tho temperate
zone, aud at last there is nothing
but lava. My party took no guide
to the crater. As wo stood beside
the cavern of firol folt tho ground
tromblo and a sickening sensa
tion came upon me. 'For lieaven's
sake lot us get out of this,' I said,
and wo walked back from tho
vorge of tho cliff. Ono miuuto
later tho apot where wo woio
standing crumbled uway and fell
into tho firo with a roar; ono
minuto later and had wo remained
thoro would bo no moio artist.
"There is a Btrango bird that
makes its homo at this volcano,
tho boatswain biid. It has its
young about the cliffs and ilies to
tho sea a distance of twenty or
thinly miles for fish to feed them.
"The coffee und sugar planta
tions inako pretty landscapes with
a background of purple moun
