Although one line has sumclent
patronage between Honolulu and

magnificent freight steamers on n

at the American merchant marine,

Hut haven't wo millions of freight

Or Is It that tho commanding inter

Tho solution of this transporta

HALLEY'S HISTORIC COMET.

famous heavenly body since It was

This comet Is ono of tho travelers
of the sky that Is not seen by every
generation, and those who get a
view of it this year havo another
enure for congratulation that their
present tour on earth Includes tho
ear 1909. It Is one of the greatest
of astronomical exhibits.
The two most celebrated histori
cal appearances of Halley's comet
were In 10G6 and 14SC. The first
dato was that of tho Norman Inva
sion of Hnglaud, and each sldo
claimed the comet as a portent In
faor of themselves. Tho Normans
said that the comet wns set In tho
heavens to guide Duke William
across the channel, and tboso who
have (sited tho little museum at
Haycux-wlll remember that It forms
a notablo flguro In tho tapestry of
tho Duchess Matilda, which Is kept
in a glass case in the second room
In the thirty-second sceno of tho
tapestry is nn object ltko a huge
shuttlecock above a castle with n
group of Normans Btarlng nnd point

titudes by anticipation at tho samo
time. Tho foremost of them Is sup

is "Istl Mlrant Stella." William I.

tho years In which n comet appeared
were usually icmarknbly good crop
