Delightful iVstlval of Jaiannf Suntlay
Schoul at Quern Kmma Hall.
A beautifnl Christmas entertainment
was given the Japanese Sunday School
in Queen Emma hall on Tuesday night.
The room was trimmed and decorated
with the most delicate ferns and
greenery. Outside, the front of the
building was adorned with evergreens
dotted with Chinese oranges, making a
rare composition of esthetic loveliness.
Some of the interior decorations were
artistic to a degree, such as a cross of
roses above the pulpit, a crown and
other flora! emblems of these people's
new profession. Everything was in
such thorough good taste as to sug
gest elegance and refinement. This
was the" first occasion upon which
the Japanese Christians here cele
brated Christmas, and peoples who hue
been nurtured in the observance of the
day might learn a great deal from the
manner in which "this young flock ac
Mr. Taro Ando, Japanese Consui-Gen-eral,
as Superintendent of the School,
presided. He delivered a brief address,
as did Kev. Dr. Hyde, who also offered
the opening prayer. Short speeches
were made in English, Hawaiian and
Japanese. For the rest the exer
cises were chiefly singing, part of the
"Immanuel" cantata being the main
performance. This portion being over,
a real Japanese Santa Claus, excel
lently made up, walked in followed by a
harlequin, gay in paint and tinsel. The
latter character distributed the gitts as
they were allotted by numbers which
liad previously been passed round on a
tray to everyone. There were all sorts
of desirable presents, useful as well as
for play or ornament. When all had
thus been made happy and mem-, they
were invited into an adjoining room,
where tables were spread with inviting
refreshments. There was a large audi
enue present, mostly composed of the
Japanese parents and friends.
D?xivnin tlie St. Lawrence.
A very Interesting and important com
mercial" event was the celebration last
week of the successful completion of the
great work of deepening the channel of
the St. Lawrence river from Montreal to
Quebec. This work was first agitated
over sixty years ago and was begun in
1S44, and the result is that where there
was formerly only eleven feet of water
there is now twenty-seven and a half feet,
and lanre ocean steamers can at present
sail triumphantly into their docks at
Montreal, KK) miles from the mouth of the
St. Lawrence, without let or hindrance.
There are now no less titan twenty-two
lines of ocean steamers tliat sail to and
from Montreal, and the deepening of the
river will be a great thing for the com
merce of that port. Engineers sav that
the commerce of a port increases accord
i ing to the cube of the increase in the
depth of the channel, and statistics show
this law of increase has been fulfilled at
Montreal as the channel has been grad
uallv deepened, and there is no reason
to doubt that the completion of the deep-
ening will still inrther increase tue com
merce of the port.
Some Idea of the magnitude of the
work which lias been done can be
gained from the fact that in Lake St.
Peter no less than S,000,000 cubic yards
of clay were removed, an amount of ex
cavating equal to what was done in
building S00 miles of the Canadian Paci
fic Railway. In some places solid rock
has been " scooped out" to a ilepth ot
several feet, and altogether it was quite
fitting that the engineers in charge, and
the Montreal, Provincial, and Dominion
Governments siiould rejoice together
over what lias been accomplished. En
gineers evervwhere have followed the
progress of the wholesale channel dredg
ing with mucn interest, ami Ulemens
Herschel of Holyoke, the well-known
engineer of the Holyoke Water Power
Company, was present at the celebration
as the guest cf the engineers who have
had charge of the work. Montreal now
has a population of 250,000, and with a
deepwater outlet ou the one side, and
tlie Canadian Pacific Railway on the
other, she looks hopefully and compla
cently out into the future, and pictures
for herself many times her present popu
lation and commerce. (Springfield,
The -Sumlav Movement In the states:
The First National Sabbath School
Convention, under the auspices of the
American Sabbath Union recently organ
ized, was held in Washington, Dec. 11th.
Colonel Elliott F. Shephard of the 2ew
York Mail and Express presided. Peti
tions to Congress from every- part of the
country were presented, urging the pas
sage of the bill which was introduced
last session and known as the ' Sunday
Rest" bill. Tliev contained "approxi
mately 6,000,000 " names. Mrs. J. C.
Baleham of Painesville, Ohio, reviewed
the history of the movement in the
society. Six million Protestants, 7,000,
000 Catholics and nearly a quarter of a
million members of labor organizations,
she said, liad united in an earnest ap
peal to Congress for the enforcement of
the Sabbath laws that Sabbath desecra
tion might be checked.

The members of the Lynn Cscle Clr.b took, a trip down to Portland. The part
prised J. H. Young, .J. H. ijhurnini:, A. II. Carsley, E. G. Bcrnholtz, J. F.'Aller, J. F.
H.Littlefield, A. W. Lewis acd A. Wiswell. On their arrived iu Portland, and nfteragcod
breakfast at tbe l'reble lloase, the Portland Wheel Clnb took the visitors in hand for a
ran to Fronts Xeck, a distance of some fourteen miles. On tbo way out tho party passed
Spurwick Hilt, an eminence that has never been climbed by a cyclist. To tbe scrprisa of
the Down Eifcters, Shurmau auuocneed that he wonU-ride up tbe hill if anyone of the
Portland men would ride down. This V7as very promptly agreed to, as tbe local men
thought tbe hill unr:dea)le. Some of the men rode down tLe hill, as also did Shurman,
and then on nrrivir at tha bottom Sherman turned round and jode to the top,
to th? amazement of those who had never seen Sherman ride. This was on Sunday.
r.nd the achievement of the Lynn man made the locals anxious to see what the visitor
could do with the Park Street Hill, a terror to Portland wheelmen, and one that has
never Ceen ciunbeu more than twice iu succession, fco on ilonaay tue party repaired to
the hill, and after Carsler. Allen and Littlefield had climbed it once and cried enoueh.
Sbufman went at it and went up and down six times without a dismount. To say that
the Portland men were dumfounded is puttiug it mildly. Sharman rode his Springfield
Koadster. Will some Portland reader kindly give ns tho grades of the Spurwick and

covered by Dr. J. Collis Browne (late Army
Medical btaff). to which he gave the name of
CIILORODYNE, cud which is admitted bv the
profcsblor. to be the most wonderful and valu
able remedy ever discovered.
CIILORODYNE is the best remedy known fot
Coughs, Consumption, Bronchitis, Asthma.
CIILORODYNE acts like a charm in Dlarr

this opportunity of congratulating you upon the
wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed
medicine, Dr. J. Collis Browne's Chlorodjuc
has earned for itself, not only in Ilindostan!
but all over the East. Asa remedy for "eneral
utility, we mnst question whether a belter Is
imported into the country, and we shall be glad
tc hear of its finding a place In every Anlo
Indiau home. The other brands, we arc orry
tosay.arenow relegated to the native bazaars
and, judging from their sale, we fancy their
sojourn there will be but evanescent. We
could multiply instances ad Infinitum of the ex
traordinary efficacy of Dr. Collis Browne's Chlo
rodyne In Diarrhoea and Dysentery, Spam
Cramps, Neuralgia, theVomitlng of Pregnancy,
and as a general sedative, that have occnied
nnocr our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhcea, and even in the
more terrible forms of Cholera itseir, we have
witnessed its snrprisinely controlling power.
We have never used any other fotm of this
medicine than Collis Browne's from a firm
Conviction that it Is decide!ythebcst,anda!o
from a sense of duty we ove to the profession
and the public, as we are oi opinion that the
substitution of any other than Collis Browne's
Is a deliberate Breach oppaitu on tub part

JL LATELISTS of Hawaii for the liberal ap
preciation which ray lale advertisement has
received. It is safe to say that hundreds of
tbonsands of Hawaiian Stamps have been sent
away without receiving more than halt their
value in retnrn, and what !s far worse, every col
lector gets a qnantity of ntcless duplicates. By
the plan which I h"7e so rnccessfully worked
np. everyone gets only such stamps as he needs;
and besides, he gets fall value for each and every
kind of Hawaiian Stamp. The prices which I
allow are better than those of 'AN YEUROPEAH
DEALER, and are higher than most American
Stamp Dealers pay.
1 receive fresh sheets of stamps by every
steamer and will send thcnl on reqnest to any
address. The prices for thee slampit are as low
as those of the largest dealers. Hawaiian Stamps
are good for exchange, and it should be to the
mnlnal interest or all onr Philatelic friends to
assist me in my efforts to make every hundred

and not a host of worthless duplicates.
