ly glad if you will kindly mention.
On the occasion referred to in

uttonded a luau given to the
Chicago base ball team by King
Kalakaua, at Queen Kapiolani's
private rosidonce, Honuakaba.
Ho ontcrtained tho king and his

for an hour, and thoso who were
present had nothing olse to talk
about for a long time afterward.
Mr. Lincoln has receivod tho most
cordial testimony to his amusing

and Europe He has porformed

men all over tho old world, re
