The best preparation for preserving,

It keeps the scalp free front dandruff,
heals troublesome humors, aud pre
vents the hair from falling out. When
the hair becomes dry, thin, faded, or

MOTTO BUTTON REDIVIYUS

The inventive genius who is
responsible for the influx of motto
buttons into Shanghai may per
haps pride himself on having hit
upon something now, but in this
ho will bo mistaken, says the
Shanghai Mercury. There is
nothing new under the sun, not
oven motto buttons. They were
known to the Egyptians; they
were copied by Aloises; and for
centuries they have been familiar
(like everything else) to the
Nevertheless their adaptation
to modern requirements is not at
all a bad idea, and wo propose
briefly to indicate some'fof the
many ways in which their use
would ameliorate the lot or many
sensible people of these Settle
ments. We feel certain, for ex
ample, that our popular Consul
General and Chief Justice would
have been saved much wearisome
reiteration during the past week
if he had sported the following:
"Yes. the Jubilee was a areat suc
cess: But it is over: Thank Heaven
and thank you."
Ho might also in a quiet sort of
way let people know his opinion
on a recont case. This he could
easily do by wearing the
following: "British protection
provided for British subjects,"
under which the most natural and
pertinent question would be,
"Have you registered?"
Probably the late Council have
got over the little trouble which
the wheelbarrow men caused
them. If not, they might find it
useful to exhibit something like
this: "Wo bear weal ana woe
For tho use of the presentCounoil
one might suggest a choice col
lection: "No native Angers in
foreign pies. No needless ex
travagance. We may be inexpe
rienced, but we mean to do our
It is almost impossible to
imagine the satisfaction that
would follow the use of these but
tons were everybody to wear ouou
with his name, and po.sibly his
address and occupation thereup
on. How muoh trouble would be
avoided! The indistinot mutter
ing of names at introductions
would then cease to bo tho worry
that it now isv and people would
be spared the discomfort of call
ing or being called something
outrageously atvariaucevith their
correct name. Mr. Flantagenet
Tudor Smytho would' not then be
confounded with plain John qf
that ilk, and the followers of the
humbler occupations might exer
ciso their ingenuity in busiuoss
description. Tho barber would
doubtless blossom forth as a ton
sorial artist, and the plumber as
a sanitary engiueor. The archi
tect might vary tho Mihholoong
motto, aud iiifouu all and sundry
that it would bo uecessaiy mere
ly to "sny tho word and up goes
your house," while Messrs. Dod
sou aud Fogg the eminent legal
practitioners should liud tho fol
lowing facts UBuful: " Possession
is niuo points of tho law, wo caro
little about the tenth."
There is a inino of un worked
advertisement here. Tho wonder
is that such outorprisiug pooplo
an the Yankees have not long ago
Socially, too, muoh might bo
done in this direction. Many
hoarts are needlessly broken now
ndoys. A happily nhoson button
or two might prevent all this.
"No poor man need apply" would
bo quito Hiilliuiont if displayed on
tho parson of tho modern maid,
whilo tho bacholor ou tho look
out for it ttifo could easily smooth
matters by pinning to tint front of
his dross coat: "Barkis in williu':
Fivo hundred (aula it month nnil
But thero is no roasau at all
why such a suggestive idea should
be confined to buttons. Ribbons
for the neck, or tho hat, motto
shields for the shirt-front, decora
five designs for ladies in so called
"full" dress, inscriptions on fans,
on screens, on flags, on note pa
per, and a hundred other things;
all these come uncalled to mind.
It would be interesting to seo
"Impartial, not neutral" flying
from one establishment, whilo
"Partial, not new" fluttered fit
fully from another. Should our
military Commandant adopt as
his motto, "What do you think of
my new uniform?" or tho Muni
cipal Surveyor, "Muddy roads
need no water;" or the master of
the present situation the land
lord take as his, "excelsior," we
might perhaps allow that they
had well chosen. Tho poor, un
fortunate householders, and other
would-be tenants are likely
enough to draw from Holy Writ:
"Foxes have holes, etc."
Our local medicos might, during
periods of epidemic disease aud
fright, provide themselves with an
appropriate Latin motto: "Crede
quod babes, ct babes."
School teachers should clotho
themselves with ..phylacteries as
with a garment. They might have
their historical dresR, their ecien
tific dress, a costume for art, an
other for the complicated British
woights and measures, aud soon:
in fact for educational puposes we
see no end for tho possibilities of
tho motto button and its out
growths. Individual idiosyn
crasies thus exhibited would be a
source of pleasure to the onlooker
and of benefit to the general com
munity. Not a few foreign resi
dents might with much advantage
to their native fellow-townsmen
buy buttons with tho inscription
in Chinese: "Get out of my roadl
I'm dangerous 1"
But it is needless to pursue the
subject further. Our renders muBt
see that whether the motto button
be new or not, it has immense
possibilities, and doubtless they
will be able to supply a large and
varied selection for focal use. We
shall be pleased to receive aud
publish any that are likely to bo
tiii: urn biex.

New York, July 8. A World's
dispatch from Washington says:
A report reached heio today that
tho Chinese Minister to the United
States', Wu Ting Fang, is about to
bo recalled and will bo replaced
by Lee King Yoo. iFaug will
succeed Yu Kong at the Tokio
It is Bftid that Li Hung ChaDg

Reason may be found in the
fact that'compluiut hud been made
to their Government by the
present secretaries of the Chinese
Legation and other attaches that
his excellency Wu Ting Fang has
not paid them tho salaries pro
misftl when they wore appointed,
but has reduced their allowances
to ih'ii lowest possible figure, and
that in lux administration of the
nlTnirn of the legation ho is par
himonious to a degree that is dis
graceful and humiliating.
Olhorcharges of another char
actor have also beon made against
The New York Tribune seems
to be very wrath with the appoint'
meut of the new Chinese Minister
to the United States, and gives his
record as follows: "Wu Tin-fang,
the new Chinese Minister to Wash
ington, is a British subject, and a
rabid ono at that; ho is known to
be hostile to all American inter
ests, and invariably sides with
Grout Britain. He has a smatter
ing of Enclish education. He
read law iu London, but was never
known to h'ave won a single case
in the course of bis practise in
Hongkong. He speculated largely
in reul estate while in that colony.'
Finaucial embarrassments, conse
quent ou his speculation, and
tiaukruptoy compelled him to quit
Hongkong. So he went und bought
the rank of an expectant Taotai
for tho sum of Tls. DOOO and en
listed iu tho Chinese service. He
had beon with Viceroy Li Hung
cluing for tho last twelve or fifteen
years as interpreter. In recog
nition of his various services
ho was given the Washington
mission. It rests with the
American Government to say
whether it will accept au official of
low rank, aud he, too, a Ohincso
British subject of a deoidod typo.

Tho following items aro from
tho Hilo Tribune of Saturday:
As wo go'to presB, Commissiou
er Howes, who is abed at Waia
ken, suffering from a bad case of
carbuncle on his neck, was not re
covering as fast as his friends
would like to note, but was in
less pain than for the past fow
days. Everything has been done
to relieve him, but be has a very
sorious trouble to mend.
Tho new road aro'und tho Lau
pahoehoo guloh has been complet
ed and is without doubt a fine
specimen of engineering work.
It is probably the best on Hawaii.
The cut for tho now road at Kaa
wali gulch is progressing at a fair
rate. One side of the gulch is
graded. As soon as tho Kaawali
gulch cut is completed work will
start ou Maulua gulch. Maulua
guloh is about the worst one on
the routo to Hamakua. As soon
as this one is finished tho remain
der of the way will be compara
tivoly smooth sailing.
From a reliable source it is
learned that tho liquor license
petition in favor of Jose G.Serrao,
tho Bridge street merchant, has
boon considered by tho Exeautive
and sixty A the signers' names
approved. It is thought the
license will be granted.
Hakalau plantation stopped
grinding yesterday, finishing up
output of 9400 tons for season,
which is the largest amount of
sugar ever turned off by this
plantation, ljust year 77UU tous
was the product, and Mr. Rons
will make Hakalau a 10,000 tons
scheme next yoar.
A conclusive proof of tho im
provement of business in Hilo is
that rents have boeu raised all

putting up $15.00.

Sheriff Andrews of Hawaii
brings particulars of a double
murder on Maui a day or two
'ciuce, the victims being Japan
ese woman aud child. , Jealousy
was evidently the cause.
It appears that the wife of a
Japaneso laborer employed at
Spreckelsville plantation left him
about two weeks ago and went to
Waikapu, where sho was taken
care of by two of her countrymen.
Last Saturday the hu-tband came
to Waikapu and hung about the
place until ho found the child
alone. He picked it au uud car
ried it off to some bustles about
200 yards from the houso.
Tho woman saw him and ran
after tho child. When sho ruo
within reach the Jupaneso stopped
the child and grabbed the woman.
Drawing a Jon;? knife he stabbed
her in live places on the body.
This not,, killing her quickly
enough he cut her throat, almost
severing the head from the body.
He then picked up the child and
with one blow of tho knife cut off
its head. He then commenced to
cut his own throat and had suc
ceeded m slicing his wind pipe
when a number of natives who
had been uttructed to the scene by
the woman's cries ovorpoworod
him and took the knife away.
The murderer was taken to
Wailuku jail where his wounds
woro dressed. Unfortunately the
prospects for his recovery aro
said to bo very good.
