THE DAMIEN 'MONUMENT.
From tho Bishop Home tho
party went a little way to Bee the
monuniont to Fathor Damien,
erected by tho people of England
at tho instance of tho Prince of
Wales. It is a beautiful red
granite obelisk, surmounted with
a cross and bearing a medallion
portrait of the "Martyr of Molo
lsai" in white marblo, together
with tho following inscription:
"Joseph Damien do Vouster.
Born 3rd January, 1840. Died
15th April, 1889. Greator lovo
hath no man than this, that a man
lay down his life for his friends.
John 15:13. This monument is
raised to his memory by tho Peo
ple of England." The inscription
is in four languages English,
Hawaiian, French and Gorman.
OFF TOR KALAWAO.
While the party wore viewing
tho monument their ears wero
greoted with loud peals of girlish
laughter from the Bishop Homo.
It sounded so strangely in those
scones that great curiosity was
evinced as to the cause. This
was revealed on returning to the
lawn in front of the Homo school
iiouso. 0. A. Brown had brought
bis bicycle along and was giving
an exhibition of his skill on tho
wiry steed. As he cavorted
around on tho smooth turf, the
girls fairly screamed with luorri
zuent. 'Alley laughed still more
when TIiob. K. Nathaniel, who
was well known as a Hawaiian
editor in Honolulu, mounted the
bike and, beiug out of practise,
did a little better in the wobbling
act than the owner of the ma
chine. Horses were in waiting
for the party to ride two miles to
Kalawao for a visit to the Bald
win Home. A breeze blowing
across the peninsula from the
ocean tempered tho great heal of
the sau on that at id plain and
mado the ride pleasant.
THE 11ALDWIN HOME.
Arrived at Kalawao the visitors
ride into the compound of the
Baldwin Home for Boys, directly
across the road from Father Da
mien's ehapol. The entrance, is
by a wide gato in a fence of
dazzling whiteness, and the horses
are tied to rails provided for the
purpose. This institution is tho
gift of Hon.H. P. Baldwin. Being
later in erection than the Bishop
Homo, certain defective arrange
ments in tbo latter are avoided.
The cottages, of which there are
fifteen, are arranged in perfect
aliugment on three sides of a large
square. As a rule, there are ten
beds in each cottage, and the turn
ishinss are like those described
in the Bishop Home. One
ward is devoted to cases
in the dying stages. Threo un
fottunates weut thence to happy
surcease from suffering the week
before this visit. Only two were
in tho ward at this visit, and
those wore the only ones soon con
lined to bed. A social hall, a neat
chapel, a dispensary, a tailor shop,
a storehouse, and a dwelling for
the Christian Brothers in charge,
are othor adjuncts of the Home.
As in the case of tho Bishop
Home, tho sholter of the Baldwin
Is available for helpless old peo
ple, besides tho boys for whom it
was chiefly designed. Thoro are
at present 125 inmates, a great
.majority of them young.
Tho superintendent is Bro.
Joseph Dutton, a' lay brother,
"whose beneficent services to the
lepers long antedates tho founda
tion of the Home. Ho is assisted
by Mr. Van Lil, a man of giant
iramo, who conducts a largo gar
den and.nursory with great suc
cess. Thousands of bananas are
growing there, aud sweet potatoes
and other vegetables to amply
supply theinstitution are raised.
"Every cottago has its garden of
flowers, behind a hedge of the red
shrub tree. The immediato care of
tho sufferers is taken by Bros,
Dominiquo, Sevorinus, Soraphino
and Bilvuune, who caino out from
Europo with Father Pamphilo
about sevonteen mouths ago. Not
ovoti woman's tenderness and de
votion could exceed the quality of
their .ministrations to tho terribly
afiliotod ones. As tho writer was
conduoted through tho wards by
Brother Dominique, ho could read
whole volumos in tho gratoful
looks that fell upon his conductor.
His gentle inquiries of tho two in
the dying ward, as to how they
felt and fared, caused thorn
to rise on their elbows as they
gave their unmurmuring but piti
fully foeble replies. The wholo
story is told in tho answer of a
lao, after a few days iu the Homo,
to tho quostion if lm had any
longing to go back to his home in
Honolulu. Ho gave a hearty
negativo while denying that his
parents and family had boon in
anywisn unkind to him. Tho
most pitiable looking cases iu tho
two villages aro to be Been at tho
' Thoro are five Bewing machines
in tho tailor Bhop, on which the
boys make and repair their
clothes. In winter they aro en
gaged on summer wear, and in
summer on winter wear. Heaps
of blue flannel shirts and Canton
flannel drawers, neatly laid away
on curtained shelves, attested the
industry of the boys, which is re
warded with allowances of money
from tho Government. Even boys
who have lost their fingers oper
ate tho machines.
During the time of tho visit the
band of sixteen pioccs, organized
by Prof. Borger on the previous
half yearly inspection, played with
creditable execution. They wero
now given a lessou and some now
music by the professor. The poor
fellows had but one request, which
was that tlioy have uniforms like
the Kalaupapa baud. It will cost
but $225 or S250,and it was agreed
that the Honolulu press invito
contributions for tho purpose.
The instruments aro a gift of Hon.
A. S. Wilcox of Kauai.
INTERVIEW WITH FATHER I'Att
riHLE. On coming out of the Home, a
visit was paid to Fathor Damieu's
chapel. Besides tho permanent dec
orations,the interior was hung with
American flags, bannerettes, etc.,
after Ascension Day that had boon
faithfully observed on the previous
date. The Bishop of Panopolis,
attended by Father Wendehu of
Kalaupapa, kindly greeted the
party in front of the church.
Father Damien's gravo is in tho
churcbyaid, maiked by a large
stono block. The writer was anx
ious to meet Father Pamphile,who
came out to tako up the work of
his lamented brother, Father Da
mien. He was shown tho cottage
of the veuerablo priest the same
as his brother had lived in by
Brother Domiuique. It is in a
garden that is a perfect tropical
jungle fruit and ornamental
trees, vegetables aud flowers
close by the churchyard. A
straight stouo path leads up to the
front voranda. A saddled pony
hitched to the gate barred the
path inside, but tying his horse
on the outside the reporter edged
past the other animal. Ono light
knock at the door got no response,
but another a littlo louder was
answered with a cheery "Come
in," and the door a moment later
was opened by the venerable
Father himself. The visitor hav
ing given his name and stated
that ho had been personally ac
quainted with Fathor Damien, was
kindly invited to a seat and made
welcome in courtly fashion.
Father Pamphilo is an elderly
gentleman of distinguished ap
pearance and strikingly benevo
lent countenance. Questioned as
to how the olimato agreed with
him, he replied that the heat was
rather sovero in summer, but his
cottage was generally favored with
sea brcezos. Sometimes, however,
the wind was stronger than made
"There is nothing to do hero,"
ho said to a remark about his
work. "The people have every
thing done for them that is pos
sible." To tho observation that
this happy condition was largely
the fruit of his late brother's de
voted labors, Father Pamphilo
assented and Boomed pleased to
moot one who had kuown Father
Damien. After a fow minutes
the visitor brought his intrusion
to a close, tho Father walking to
the verauda to givo him a parting

besides a vurioty of shrubs, eta.
Tho Kalaupapa band played a
welcorao aud a farewell, besides
playing throughout tho day.
Dr. Oliver gave rest and re
freshment to several of the party
at his houso, a Bliort distance off
the road, on the ride back to tho
lauding. Tho abattoir of the Sot
tlemout was inspected farther
along. A number of the visitors
went to see the famous extinct
crator with its bottomless water
When all had returned to Ka
laupapa, a sumptuous lunch
provided by the Board of Health
and served by tho steward of tho
Iwalani was onjoyed at tho re
ception house. '
For the remainder of the day,
some of the party listened to the
Kalaupapa band, while others
visited afflicted ones, with whom
or their families they had ac
quaintance. The Board of Health
officials held a meeting.
At this date there., were 1110
lopers in tho Settlement, and 300
to 400 kokuas or helpers per
mitted to live there aud
take caro of their friends.
Thoso not in the Homes describod
live iu neut cottages, within the
two villages or scattered along the
road between them. Most ot the
houses have gardens about them,
some of them cultivated with great
industry by the inmates.
The water supply is enough for
household purposes, but not for
irrigation. Its source in Waikolu
valley is inexhaustible and abun
dant, but there should be a 12 inch
pipe instead of a four-inch one to
William Mutch had an import
ant mission to the Settlement on
this occasiou, having been in
structed by Mr. Bishop to investi
gate the conditionsfor constructing
a sewerage system for the Bishop
Home. He will send graduates of
Kamehameha School over to make
a survey. It will probably be
found desirable to shift the cot
tages into regular rows to facili
tate construction of tho sewers.
Leaving Kalaupapa landing,
after a rather exciting embark
ation in the heavy surf, shortly
after five o'clock, the Iwalani un
der steam and sail landed the
party safely in Honolulu at 11
o'clock on Friday evening.

The mango season is now
on in all its force and the small
boy is engaged in" his yearly
tussle with that luscious fruit.
In former years for every
mango fit to eat the boy
knocked down with a rock he
destroyed eight or ten unripe
ones besides half ruining the
tree. All this is changed now
since the introduction of our
Wire Fruit Pickers. With one
of these attached to a long pole
any particular mango can be
plucked'-without hurting the
tree or knocking off the unripe
fruit. By using one of these
handy pickers one gets several
times" more fruit in oetter con
dition than by the old way of
firing rocks at the tree. They
cost only 50 cents each and a
child can use them.
