What the Tea
Jamci Wat Duty
JACKand Evelyn thought this wns a very queer title for a story. "Hut It
Is a true story," said dHdfly, "anil the lesson which the teakettle tnught
was oue of the most Important lessons ever learned by men. Why,
whenever you ride on a railroad or sail on o steamboat or whenever any
one of a great many Important things Is done It Is due to the lesson which the
teakettle taught to n little buy In Scotland almost 200 years ago.
'The name of 'the tioj was James Walt, and be was a bright, studious little
fellow. He was like you. Jack. In one thing-be was always asking questions
and wanting to know all about thlngs-wbat made them go and why they did
so and so. One day James wus sitting In bis grandmother's kitchen. He was
watching tbo teakettle, which was hung oil a chain In the great llrvplace over
u hot Ore. ,
"As young James watched the kettle the water within It (uegun to boll.
Boon It boiled at a great rate, the lid began to rattle and shake; uud tbo steam
commenced lo'pour out of tbe kettle's spouL 'Grandma,' asked the boy, 'what
Is lu tho kettle?' ' .
'' 'Nothing, child; only water, said the old lady. -
'"'But what Is It that lifts tbo lid and makes It rattle and shake?'
"'Why, Jumes, that Is only tbe steam," said his gruudinotber.. 'You 'can
see It coming from under the lid and comlug out of tbe spout.'
" 'Hut. graudtna. you said there wns nothing in tho kettle but water. Where
does the steam como from'
"'From tbe water, lad,' said tbe grandmother. 'Steam always comes from
water when you beat It But, tbere, do not ask me any more questions uow. 1
"James was busy thinking. He said to himself: 'If tbo steam can lift the
heavy lid of tbe teakettle It must be very strong. And if a small auvnm of
steam. In tbe teakettle can llft-tbe lid a larger amount of steam should be able
to lift other things that are more heavy. And so perhaps tbe steam can be
made to lift things for people so folks will not bavo to work so bard.'
"It took James many years to work out his Ideas. Tut he kept thinking
and thinking about steam and Its power until In time he Uivcntod tbe world's
first steam engine. He found that by beating ihe water In a great boiler nnd
holding tbo steam In a cylinder, wbtch Is only it sort of a round box. It could
be made to do much work. And all tbo world's locomotives and other engines
are tbe result of the little boy's thinking what It was that made the lid ot bis
grandmother's teakettle move." Jf1
Bold Robber Takes Altar Silver
and Vestments From Chapel
at Puna, Hawaii.
(Htwclal llll I let In Correspondence.)
HILO, May 21. An exceedingly pe
culiar and roprchonslblo robbery
took place nt Kapoho, Puna, a shoit
tlmo ago, when a burglar secured tho

to tho Catholic Church at that place.
Father Otto, who has chargo of tho
church In Puna, last week reported
tho matter to Sheriff Pun, nnd the
police are doing their best to solvo
tho mystery. ,
The Catholic congregation at ICu
polio does not possess n regular

been given tho use of tho house form
erly occupied by Chas. Weatherbeo,
nnd here services were held with u
small portable nltar. Tho nrtlclea
used during the sorvlco wero when
not In ure, placed In a medium slied
box, which was placed In o closot,
tho upper port of which wns furnish
cd with shelves. On tho Bhelves wero
stored books and sacred pictured,
none of which wero of any great In
trinsic value, but some of the arti
cles In tho box, which stood on the
floor of tho closet, wore of consider-'
able value, an they Included tho sil
verware used for tho communion ser
vice, candlesticks, the altar stobo con
taining relics, chasubles, robes, stoles
and Burpllces, many of tho vestments
being entirely new and of fine fnbrlo
which might linve a temptation to
