Xanie el al. vs. Xameact aL Motion in
arrvst of juiigruont.
Plaintiffs' declaration state that they
complain of defendants, that they have
unjustly and contrary to law and the
rights of the plaintiffs entered upon and
taken into their possession and converted
to their use and occupation a certain par
cel of land situated at Waianac, Oahu,
the land described in Royal Patent, No.
396 ( metes and hounds given) granted to
HmwW, to the damage of the plaintiffs in
the sum of $.500.
That Hoewaa conveyed the land to Imi
lei by deed dated 21st" August, 196?, and
recorded, and thai the said land is now
devised by Imilei by will, duly admitted
In Probate, one halt to Kamabalo, and one
half to X anie. There is a statement that
Knmahalo has died and who her heirs at
law are. It prays for restitution of pro
Mat and damages. Verdict was returned
lor the plaintiffs with 19 damages.
A motion is made by defendants in ar
rest of judgment, on the ground, that,
the plaintiffs' declaration does not allege
the parcel of land in question to be the
property ot the plaintiffs or that they had
at the time of the commencement of this
aotkoa any estate, interest or title in or to
IMemlants' counsel contend that in an
action to recover specific real property,
the petition for process should state the
kind of title claimed by plaiutiffs, and
that, though a verdict cures the statement
of a title detectively set forth, it will not
cure a total defect of title.
Plaintiffs' counsel aver that the title is
sufficiently stated in the declaration.

It tue Court:
The leading authority on this question
is Rnshton vs. Aspinall, 1 Smith's Lead
ing Cases, 334.
This case was an action against an in
dorser ot a bill of exchange : the declara
tion did not allege a demand and refusal
by the acceptor on the day when the note
Ixrd Mansfield held that this defect
was not cured by verdicU He says:
" The answer was, that after verdict, it
must be presumed that those facts were
proved al the trial and our wishes
strongly inclined us to support the judg
ment if we could ; but in looking into the
cases, we find the rule to be, that, where
the plaintiff has stated his title or ground
of action, detectively or inaccurately, be
cause, to entitle Imn to recover, all cir
cumstances necessary, in form or sub
stance, to complete the title so imper
lectly stated, must be proved at the trial,
it is a fair presumption after a verdict,
that they were proved ; but where the
plaintiff totally omits to state his title or
cause of action, it need not be proved at
the trial, and therefore, there is no room
The Statute form for petitions like the
one at bar prescribes that the kind of title
to the land claimed by plaintiff be stated,
and, I regard an averment of title in such
an action to be necessary.
In the complaint before us there is no
distinct allegation that the properly in
question is claimed by the plaintiffs, or
that the plaintiffs have any title or inter
est therein, and this was good cause tor
seeial demurrer. If, however, the title
can bo implied from the allegations made,
the verdict cures the omission.
" The rule of law,'' says Tilghman,C. J.,
f is, that where the declaration contains a
substantial cause of action, it shall be
aided by verdict." Miles vs. Oldtield, 4
Vt-ates, 42o; Sehlosser vs. Brown, 17 S.
& R.. 250.
' These defects or omissions in pleadings
which are cured by the verdict are those
necessary circumstances which are implied
by law, and which invariably follow from
the substantial fact charged." Bartlett
vs. Crozier, 17 Johns, 439. Kent, Chan
cellor. In th declaration in this case we have
an allegation of a trrant by royal patent
from the King to Hoewaa : the legal pre
sumption of law from this is, that, unless
the contrary be shown, it was an estate
in fee simple that was so granted.
Next we have an allegation of a con
veyance of the said land by deed of the
said HoewaA to Imilei ; the legal presump
tion here, is that it was conveyed in fee.
Then follows an averment that the land
was devised by will of Imilei, one ball to
Katnahalo and one half to Xanie: and the
law presumes that they are tenants in
common in fee. So of the allegation that
Kailiana and Kabili are heirs at law of
said Kamabalo, dying intestate, the law
presumes their title to be the same as that
of their ancestor Kamabalo.
As it therefore can be implied from the
declaration, that the title of the plaintiffs
is that of an estate in fee, I am of the
opinion that the verdict aids the declara
tion. Motion in arrest overruled.

Such marvelous stories are told of the
sagacity of ants, that one is prepared to
hear almost anything concerning their in
tellectual achievements: but when we are
(old that there is a species living down in
I Texas that actually sows, reaps, and hives
: grain for its winter use, the statement is
almost too much for human credulity.
However, we have it on the authority of
I Dr. Gideon Lincecum, a student of science
whose observations are accepted by the
savants as careful and trustworthy. In a
recent paper communicated by him to the
Smithsonian Institute, and published by
permission ot Professor Henry in the Xut
imilist, there are many interesting par
ticulars of this singular ant. Its scientific
name is fyrmi(a moleiicxens.
This ant lives in populous communities,
builds paved cities, constructs roads, and
sustains large military forces. For the
first year and a half after a colony is foun
ded its operations are conducted under
ground. And ants then appear above the
surface, ami begiu to build their public
works and cultivate their estates. All
grass, herbage, and other obstructions are
cleared awav to the distance of three or
four feet around the entrance to their city,
and a circular pavement, consisting of a
pretty hard crust, about half an inch
thick, is constructed of coarse sand and
grit. This pavement is sometimes 15 feet
in diameter. To avoid the inundation
which would be likely to overflow this
pavement in the raiuy season, " at least
six months previous to the coming of the
rain," they commence the erection of a
mound or pyramid, which rises a foot or
j more from the centre ot the pavement.
The mound is occupied with neatly-con-I
structed cells, in which the eggs young
i ones, and their stores of grain arc carried
in time of rainy seasons. The pavement
is kept clear of every growing herb, ex
. cept a grain-bearing grass, the astritlii
itrieta. When ripe this grain is harvested,
i the chaff removed, and then it is stored in
! the dry cells. The grain from several
j other species of grass, as well as seeds
I from various kinds ot herbaceous plants,
j is also gathered and garnered. Dr. Lince
! cum declares the ants even sow the grain
of the tuttidt MNMfl, which he calls anl
rice. Despite their precautions, he savs,
a bushel of them." Not a female,
or living, was to be seen on the
ground. They had made their escape, and
countless little black piles of earth in the
vicinity shewed how busy they had been
during the night, making excavations for
their accommodation. Did the queens all
survive, the earth would soon be overrun
with their progeny. And Xatnre takes
care to prevent this. Many of them die
in their cells, from having packed the dirt
over them too tightly; many fall a prey
to ants of other species, which hnnt them
out and assnssinate them; while many
are devoured by birds, to whom they
prove a delicious momeL

Advertising for a Cook, and Scrutlna; Wife
He was a bachelor who kept house in a
fine street in a fine city, both of which
shall be nameless. One day he advertised
for a cook. Twenty-five young women
and ten old oues answered the advertise
ment. All of them had references in their
pockets, as per requirement. Among the
twenty-five young women was a slim crea
ture in the shabbiest shawl and bonnet
there, with exactly enough flesh on her
bones to hold them together, but a lady,
every inch of her.
" References," he said to her as she sat
She took off a mended glove and
showed him a forefinger, rough as a nut
meg with ranch sewing.
" There's the only proof I have that I've
been trying to earn an honest living," she
" An odd reference for a cook," said he.
'That's for character," said she. " 1 11
show you how I can cook, I'll give practi
cal proof ot that.',
" You are not a servant," said he.
"Xot vet, I mean to be. I've been
sewing for a living, and I am sick of it,"
He looked at her from top to toe.
"Family t "
" Myself only," said he.
" Dinner at six? "
She nodded again.
" Soup every day 7 "
She nodded once more.
" For the rest, variety."
" AH right," said she"
He named the wages and took her
down into the kitchen, where the young
person who was general Assistant received
her with a bewildered stare.
After that he did not see her for four
weeks, bill his meals were delicious. At
the end of the time he went down stairs
to pay her wages. It was late in the even
ing. A plump lady, with pink cheeks,
sat before the fire stoning raisins. He did
not know her at first, but as the knowledge
dawned on him he realized how nearly
she had been to starvation on the day
when he hired her. All he said was,
" I'd like my steak broiled less."
After that be saw her once in four weeks
regularly. She never said anything to
him but " Thankye, sir." He always
found some fault with something, bus eyes
fixed on vacancy the while. He was a
trim and big bachelor of forty, with hand
some black side whiskers. She was thirty,
and a warm-tinted blonde not red-haired,

; called her master " that bear." Secretly
she thought Imn very handsome.
One day the dinner came down nutas
tcd. " What fault has he found with it now ?"
" None," said the girl. " He's sick."
At breakfast no one came to the table.
Then the cook ascended the stairs, and
finding a pair of boots outside one door,
knocked at it.
"Come in," said a faint voice.
She went in, and the result of her inves
tigations was a telegram to the doctor.
Her master who had always been proud of
not being vaccinated bad caught the

ries and sets their seeds to sprouting
Then there is a turmoil in the colony. All
the damaged grain is brought out the first
fine day, and exposed to the sun. When
night comes every seed that has not actu
ally sprouted is taken In again. Dr. Lin
cecum states that one day he saw these
ants have out on a flat rock as mucn as a
gallon of wheat, sunning. He watched
I the operation on iu return to the cells
again, which the ants accomplished at
nightfall in just five minutes.
When Dr. Lincecum first went, in 1848,
to Long Point, Texas, the place where
he has studied these ants there was but

Xanie vs. Xaraea Motion in arrest of
judgment. On exceptions from the April

and the arguments of Counsel before us,
and concur with the opioion of the said
Justice and affirm his decision.

H. H. Chas. Kanaina, vs. H. H. Ruth
Keelikolani On exceptions from ruling
of Mr. Justice Harris, January term, 1875.
Opinion bt Jcdd, J.
At the trial of an appeal to a jury on
an issue of fact in re estate of Kameha
meha V., the Justice who tried the case
held, that the testimony of IL H. Charles
Kanaina, the appellant, was not admissi
ble " to show the reputation among the
chiefs in former times of the claimant's
(appellee's) paternity." .
To this ruling the appellant excepts.
We are of opinion that the testimony of
fered is inadmissible ; because the appel
lant Ohas. Kanaina, is the real plaintiff of
record, and as such is disqualified by Sec
tion 1218, of the Civil Code.
The appellant, under the act of 1864,
which allows an appeal to a jury in Pro
bate cases, made np an issue of fact to be
tried, to wit : " Whether Her Highness
passing near their pavement had got well
trodden, they were able to run over it,
and erect new cities on its borders.
Three years after, their cities were seen
rising at intervals ot 80 yards for the dis
tance of a mile along this path.
As we have said for tho first eighteen
months after a city is began its builders
keep themselves hid from their enemies.
At the end of that time they have gained
sufficient strength to sustain themselves
in the struggle for existence with other
tribes of their race, and dare announce
their intentions to the world above. When
the ants wish to send off a new colony
they assemble in swarms from the snf
ronnding cities, and celebrate a grand
marriage festival, which continues for
three or four hours. The queen of the
colony then spreads her wings and flies
with the wind until she is tired, or is
thrown to the ground by a counter cur
rent. She now runs about in eager haste
to select a proper location where to lay
the foundations of the city. This she
does by digging a small hole, from which,
after it has. reached a certain depth, she
withdraws, and deliberately bites off her
wings with her sharp mandibles. She
then renews her digging until she has
made an excavation of six or seven inches
deep, with a small cell at the bottom, in
which she ensconces herself, closes the
aperture, and deposits twenty or thirty
eggs, the inmates ot tnese eggs are all
workers, and when they have reached
maturity, they set about the labors of
their lives. The queen keeps them con
stantly employed, while she adds toatheir
numbers. When her colony is numerous
enough, they commence their outer forti
fications and' the cultivation of their fields
Dr. Lincecum describes one of the mar
riage festivals of the agricultural ants
which he witnessed in 1858. A space of
ground, 107 yards in length and 10 yards
in width, was covered with the tiny crea
tures. These carousals are so dissolnte
and exhausting as to prove fatal to the
male ants, and they are always left dead
on the field. On visiting the place the
morning after the debauch in question,
Dr. Lincecum found that the wind had
driven the dead bodies of the revellers
into the little gullies in the road, and al
together " there could not have been less
' Where has she gone ?" asked the
" To the hospital !" said Bridget. " She
did be getting the small-pox, and she
"It wasn't for one just ont of a sick bed
to nse the language the master did after
that," Bridget said, in relating the inci
dent. But he was yet an invalid, and he did
not know his cook's name.
She had never told it to him. He tried
in vain to discover her whereabouts, but
Bridget showed some sagacity. "The
wages were owing, and the trunk in the
bed-room. Cook wonld come back."
So "the master" waited; a month
passed; another week; then another; then
one evening some one rang the bell.
" Cook is back and wants to see you,"
"The master" went into the parlor.
There sat the long absent woman. I r
hair had been cut short and curled up
about her temples ; but her complexion
was not spoiled, though she was thin and
" I've come to see whether you wauted
rae to cook for you again," she said.
" No," he answered.
" Very well," she said.
"You had no business to go off that
way," said he.
" Who'd have taken care of me I? she
" It was my duty to see to that, after
all you'd done for me," said he.
" Not at all," said she. " And about
the wages ? I don't want to hurry you,
but I need the money."
" Ob, yon do." said he.
Then he sat down near her.
" What a bear I was to you," said he.
" Yes, indeed," said she.
"Fretted and found fault with too."
" So unreasonable, too," said she.
" And yet you'd cook for me again ?"
"If I suit you." said she.
"You do," said he.
" You might have said so before," said
" Not as cook," said he.
" Oh !" said she.
" The kitchen is no place for yon," said
j " It's better than sewing," said she.
"But if I make yon another offer 7"
'said he. "Will you marrvme? I like
' von better than any woman I ever knew
" but it s a matter oi mutual
said she. " Not of yonrs, alone."
" Answer my question," said he.
"It is too unexpected,"said she.
" Don't believe it," said he, " 1 a or
" Oh !" said she. " Well, no.
" Now yon are angry," said he.
"Yon are in a temper"" said she ; "not T."
" I'll ask yon a second time," said he.
" Will you have me ?"
"Second thoughts are best," said she.
And they were married ; and as they
never were divorced, it is proper to pre
sume that they were happy:
The Jloal Powerful Ironflitd In the
Kntxtiah Vn .
The London Time gives a rather de
tailed accoiiutofa launch which took place
at Chatham some months since. From
this we glean the following facts : The
launching of the Alexaudra created quite
a revival in the mode of coisrmitling newly-built
vessels to the clement tor which
they were intended, and it is sometime since
a launch of this kind has taken place, all
the large men-of-war recently constructed
having" been put together and floated iu
drv docks. The experience of the Xorth-
! umberland, which was built on the
Thames and launched in the usual w:i ,
was so unsuccessful that days elapsed be
fore she yielded to the pressure which was
brought to bear upon her. The ceremony
of launching this huge mass of iron was
witnessed by upwards of 20,000 people.
The Alexandra is one ot the most, if not
the most, heavily plated vessel in the Eng
lish navy, being in some places protected
by plates twelve inches iu thickness, but
in some parts the plating is from nine to
ten inches thick. She has besides this, a
teak backing of ten or twelve inches, with
the usual longitudinal irirders. Altogeth
er the total protection of this vessel con
sists of about fourteen inches of iron, of
which one thickness is twelve inches
solid. The Alexandra has been under
construction for nearly three years, and
represents in her design what, to some
professional authorities, may seem a re
trograde policy in shipbuilding. She is a
broadside ocean-going ironclad, construct
ed for speed and for carrying the maxi
mum weight of armament and armor con
sistent with the qualities for which she is
specially designed. The Alexandra is in
tended to carry at least two 25-ton guns
and two 19-ton guns on what corres
ponds to the central or principal battery
ol the Hercules; on the upper deck eight
or ten 1 ij-ton guns, and in additiou fore
and aft will probably carry two or four
chase guns. " It was considered a tri
umph of constructive power when it was
found possible to carry these 18-ton guns
throwing 400-lb. projectiles, on a broad
side battery." It has been calculated
that the Alexandra, in fair weather, will
attain a speed ot not less tnan i Knots.
Tfca Tfmm goes on to say" So far as is
known there are no vessels afloat which are :
superior to the Alexandra as sea-going (
ironclads, except the Kaizer and the
Dentschland, belonging to the German
Xavv." These two ships are armed with
sight 22-ton Krupp breech-loading guns,
and four smaller gnns.
