in the number of
catalogues received from
Mail Order Houses on the
Mainland. Every dollar
sent out of Hawaii in
response to the alluring
pictures and prices is a
dollar lost for keeps to
the merchants of this

no remedy this would .be
discouraging; but there

the Evening Bulletin goes
to Three Thousand Island
Families and is read care
fully by at least Ten
Thousand Island People;
and this splendid service
is placed at the disposal
of every merchant in the
Territory for Fifty Cents

good reason has any
Island merchant to offer
for not using this service?
(By E. S. Goodhue, M. D. of Holualoa.)
II THOSE WHO WAIT.
The next Job I secured, was a pri
vate boarding-house, out on Mission
street, beoml 1S00 somewhere, kept
by n stern-faced, unmarried woman
of about fifty.
The dining-room was very large,
accommodating many regular board
ers as well as transients,
I wa to have full charge of this
room, the manager told me.
The cook was a Chinaman whoso
tyranny over his subordinates wns
well known, and reached to the em
plo)inent offices; wnlters never staid
here over a month, I was assured,
for no man could ever get along
either with Miss , or old John
The first morning, I came down at
six o'clock, and waited on the break
fast, having set my tables "ship
shape,,' and placated John with a
Then I set the tables for lunch
which was ocr by two o'clock In the
afternoon, leaving me until r. I M.
lor wiintover I wisned to do.
My ow n room was a most comfort'
able one on the first floor, where
privacy was secure.
Here I read many books which I
brought from the library not far
away, and wrote several letters, one
of which attracted the attention of
Mr. Darin, who wns good enough to
write me that I had "struck a ledge
which he hoped I would follow up,
assuring me that he would be glad
to look over more of the same kind
for publication In his paper.
Whether this was prompted 1))
kindness or real discrimination, I
leave for others to say; my opinion
Is, that someone In the hotel mutt
hae written Mr. Dana about me;
nnd that impression caused mo to
think less of the appreciation.
One of the hotel guests was Mr.
Drown, n comtemplative, studious
man, who reminded me of the like
nesses I had seen of Dr. Lyman Ab
bott. Ho Invited me to his room
time nnd time again, and although
1 tried to avoid making acquaint
ances, he forced me to unfold myself
more or less.
He spent most of his time In his
room, surrounded by books and
papers, and although ho wrote a
great deal, I never learned tho ua
ture of his business.
One day he came In with a piece
of news which ho thought woutd
please mo very much. "Lad," he
said (a natural delicacy had kept
l)lm from usklug mo my name), 'tl
think I can get ou a position more
suited to youithan this. I have made
partial arurngements with Mr. nan-
croft" (the; historian of San Fran
cisco)' "for you to act as his private
Oh," I said quickly, "you are
wry kind, but I do not think I want
such a position. It I could fill It. I
might not suit, and 1 really like this
I felt a real alarm that I might
be denied the opportunity to go on
In intimate contact with a class of
people from which I had bocn sep
arated all my life, and I really did
enjoy my handwork about tho bouse,
seeing how much cleaner the win
nows could be kept than they had
been, and how much room there was
for improvement in the arrangement
of the tables, and how much better
the food tasted when the salt cellars
and crewet stands were Immaculate
I can say that I formed habits of
method nnd order which have lasted
mo to this day, and sometimes use'
up more of my time than I have to
Mr, Drown was greatly surprised
to have me refuse "this most desir
able position," assuring me that I
made a mistake; but I remained In-'
flexible, and kept my Job at P 's
The owner of the house as well as
his wife had died, and an Aunt was

and soon after I had 'become well
settlod In my duties, he was taken
I was glad to be able to be with
him for tho few das he was con
scious, as ho had no ono else to show
blm sympathy or even care. The
ravings of the poy are fresh In my
"Walter," .ho sold to me In ono or
his raoro lucid moments, "they care
more for the dog than they do for
me, but I deserve It all. I'm nothing
but n vugabond. I did have hopes
of myself until ths last spree, and
nobody knows how I've tried, but
It's no use. If Ilessle (the elder
sister) would onlyicome In to seo me
I'd die easier. I have somethings
to tell her. Do you think sou could
get her to come?"
"I am sure they love you," I said,
"they are only busy and thought
less." "Do ou really think so?" he ask
ed with n gleam of hope In his ccs.
I went to the sister and told her,
but she said sho was In the midst
of her examinations, and couldn't
possibly spare tho time.
This decision was glcn with Midi
evident nnno)unco that 1 did nut
urge tho matter.
The cook and I attended to tho
boy's wants), and, nt lust, ono wear)
night, the poor boy passed out of
his pain and heart-ache, trying to
make mo hour some word which fail
ed of utterance.
Kor u long time after the funeral
(which was nut attended l u single
member of the family, but to which
the cook and I went reverently), 1
felt very bitter towards the ihlldrun,
who considered the death of their
brother a great relief.
How much the errors of his life
was due to the fault of others; to
the lack of necessary Influence nnd
sjmpathy, who can tell.
1 feel that no one can Judge harsh
ly of such lives, for no one knows
tho Inward weakness and struggle
excepting one alone, but (tod knows
too, and, I am sure, In duo time
mends the broken reed.
Of course this boy caused his
family sorrow and humiliation, but
If he had been loved and watched
over by some tender sister, he would
have prevailed over his uppetlte, I
During tho winter there enme I"
tho hotel from the far South, a pret

baby of n few months.
She appeared to be Kngllsh, and I
notlced that her c)es were often wet
with tears, and sometimes when she
recolved n letter, she went to her
room, nnd took no meals for the rest
of the day.
Shehnd no friends In the city, she
said, Ttnd when I spoke to the bub),
one day, after all the boarders had
left the dining-room, she broke
down, and told me her history.
I was reluctant to hnve her do
this, but could not well help mfclf.
She had come from England two
years previously, going to Riverside
where sho acted as governess In an
Kngllsh family there, but having

The cause of my going Wis tho
receipt of n letter from n rhiim of
mine who had spent n few weeks In
the Sonoma red woods.
He had gone there to Imp wood,
and ho wrote me such glowing ac
counts of life on the Russian river,
that I decided to Join him
My cmploynicnt-'cinrc ilium wns

provisions I brought up ver) nice
indeed; c cry thing was nice to him,
nnd nothing could displease him,
not even his own lack of energy.
In the sbnek which he tailed his
cabin-home, there wns little except
books, pamphlets, nnd sheets of pa

Ilcfore I arrived there was not a bed

And I never saw n man who came
nearer to living on books than lie
could. He nppenred to thrive on
contemplation, tnklng nourishment
and delight In dream) speculation
which would not be entertained by
an) one elso.
Hut with all his Impractical Ideas
and habits, he was sympithetlc, mid
as utterly devoid of selfishness and
egotism ns a babe. He si nicely ever
thought of himself in u personal
Once when I asked hliii'ln tell tun
his history, he threw me a package
of documents; "read these," he said,
"and afterwards burn them. They
are no further use to me."
I found among them his Oxford
diplomas, certltlng to the degrees
of bachelor and muster of Arts con
ferred upon hliiK a diploma from
Harvard showing that he had lecelv
ed tho degree of Doctor of Laws;
letters from distinguished men, one

writer of nny Importance, and could
quote at length from tho poets.
Yet hero he was, wasting his time
and talents In musing!
"1 shall never do nn) thing except
to think pleasant thoughts," ho bald
to me one afternoon as he laid down
a (up of Browning's poems, "I am

drunk with tiro wine of wise men's
