Mrs.George is unkind. Although
acq titted of tho chargo of murdor

nifies hor intention to lccturo on

ADMIIItL, KAUT.'H LETTISH.
from Montreal Witness
Admiral Eautz's letter to his
cousin, which she his been in-
Jircrcct cnuu to publish, in
which ho describes himself,
American fashion, as "tho boss of
tho ranch," and tho Gerraau con
sul as "a very silent partner,"
will, we hope, contribute more to
the gayoly of the nations than to
thoir jealousy or annoyancn.
British people will bo inclined to
siy that tho tono of tho letter is
American through and through,
and so it is, but tho Americans
aro only young Britons in that re
spect. For our British admirals
and genesis wrto just such let
ters from abroad during tho last
century and the early part of tho
present one wuen excited during
their fights everywhere in extend
ing tho empire. Theso letters,
wb'c't were generally frrpjy
ppppored with oaths, may bo
fouu 1 in the biograpbha and his
tories of the doingd of all our
most famous warriors by sea or
land, from tho timo of Drake and
Rtleieh down to theso of Nelson
and Wellington ovon. Their rola
tivi'H dil not publish these lowers
in tho times thoy wore written, but
that wns owing to the fact that
the publishers of the, few news
papors of tho day thought they
lind more important matter to deal
with. NowadayB British oflicorB
probably do not write such letters
because the novolty nf the busi
ness of ninpire-buildiug is gone,
and they regard the most rxciting
event as all in tho day's work.
During tho recont Soudan aud In
dhn frontier wars, howevor, we
noticed letters from young oflicorA
which wore anything but disoroet
published in tho more 'yollow' of
tho London papers, and ono or
two nr peared ovpn in the 'TiraeR.'
And thoy Hoemod to ho Eont to the
press by fond fathors us a rule.
Lit Britiahttir), til or of ore, laugh
with a seuso of fellow feeling ut
tho Americans as thoy road tho
rollicking Bailor's letter which
strikes ono unto which is heard
around tho world today with good
offo.it, uaraely, that in his wotk as
an Amorioau admiral 'ho is all
right with the English, and 1 hope
to pull through with them.' Thoro
is no doubt that tho British aud
Americans cati pull through about
anything so long us thoy pull togothor,

The Homes of Honolulu
Have been criticised most favorably by
the many visitors to this mld-Pacilic capi
tal and whose attention was attracted by
the manner In which the spacious grounds,
which surround most of them, were at
tended to and kept In order. The beauti
ful lawns which the greater number of
houses havearealwayssubjects of favorable
comment and a tangled mass of grass and
weeds is sure to provoke scathing criticism
of the slovenly character of the owner. It
is wonderful what a revolution In the ap
pearance of an illvkept lawn may be ef
fected by the introdution of a lawn mower.
And a lawn-mower Is a necessary adjunct
in the list of agricultural Implements of
every well-regulated family, hor strength,
ease In manipulation and price, the Cali
fornia Clipper Lawn-mower is a prize
winner and Is sold only by the Pacific
