gold, studded with diamonds. A
tiny ruby serves as a headlight.
The rudder is an emerald and its
stand is a little slab of ivory. The
boat weighs less than half an ounce
and is valued at $5,000. An ambitious
Italian woman has painted on
a canvas, so small that half a grain
of corn hides it from view, a windmill,
with the miller and a horse and
cart, with people in the cart. Some
of the Italian mosaic workers in
Florence will take bits of stone and
glass and fashion them into graceful
flowers and other designs of
shirt studs. Selected.
A PRINCESS'S CHRISTMAS
From Germany comes the news
that the Crown Princess Cecilia has
established a confectionery kitchen,
and there she busies herself several
hours each day making marzipan,
or almond cake, for the Christmajr
season. She learned the art in
Koenigsberg, where the finest marzipan
This year the crown princess intends
to reserve all her Christmas
money for the poor, except the
amounts intended for the children
and her servants, and to her friends
she will give only marzipan cakes
of her own making. "The poor
need the money," says the princess,
"and my marzipan is good enough
Following is the recipe used by
the crown princess:
One pound of sweet almonds, 15
or 20 bitter almonds, 1 pound of
powdered sugar, a little rose water.
Skin the almonds the night before
and put in cold water. In the
morning dry them off between
towels, and when dry pound them
in a marble mortar. Add the sugar,
mix well, and make into a paste.
Add the rose water, but be careful
not to make it too moist. Form into
a ball and bind up in a cloth. Let
it lie for several hours. Then put
on a board and roll out.
Cut out the cakes and place on a
piece of paper with sugar on it.
Put the paper on a tin and place in
moderate oven. It should be dried
rather than baked, and must not be
allowed to get yellow. The
THE EDITOR'S FEW BRIEF
Two nights before the coming
in of the glad New Year there
was indeed a rough storm thunder
and lightning with pelting
rain, likely as violent as ever
known in Honolulu.
At half-past nine on Friday
night, the rain was pouring in a
fierce torrent, as if not one only
but several clouds had burst. We
have never heard it rain harder
than it did, for a few minutes.
Today, New Year's Eve, is
warm, cloudy and still, almost as
if the elements were asleep.
It is now the time set, 2:30
p. m., for the birdman (aviator)
to fly with his biplane. But it
seems that at Moanalua there is
fear of the currents having something
to say, as they circle the
hills and sweep into the gulch.
But we trust that those skillful
men will use the greatest
judgment and take few risks.
January 1, 1911.
This day was very cool, clear
and crisp, and tonight chilly
enough on the cars for a fur coat
really uncommonly cold for
Honolulu. The aviator, Mars, has
been very successful, making
four flights both yesterday and
today, and winning the enthusiastic
applause and good will of
the vast assembly of spectators.
January 2 It certainly has been
one of the best, if not the best
holiday seasons ever known in
Honolulu. The shops have been
blessed with buyers, and great
prosperity has abounded, not only
in this city, but throughout the
Every poorest child has had a
share in the Christmas and New
Year's joy. The rich have, indeed
and in word, recollected the
poor, and the very poor, and have
sought them out and helped them.
All this is a good investment to
those who have faith to believe
in the promises of God: that not
one good deed is valuless in His

eyes, with whom we have to do.
Hundreds of men and women
have worked willingly and gladly
for days and nights to make
complete and to finish up schemes
for the welfare of the poor at this
time. It is really marvelous the
almost endlesss amount of work
that lias been carried into execution.
These men and women of Honolulu
are inventors for God the
Saviour, more especially at this
especial time of the year that is
to say, the end of the old, and the
beginning of the new year. They
are preeminently, inventors at all
seasons, for the spiritual as well
as the material welfare of others
about them their neighbors.
We are glad to relate that they
are not inventors in the sense
of that mighty inventor and scientist
for whom God has done
so much in mental gifts, and who
in turn, turns and dishonors his
Creator and his Saviour, by material
and atheistic suggestions.
Were he an ordinary man in mental
calibre, it would (what he has
put forth) fall to the ground ; but,
from the fact that he is Thomas
A. Edison, all will be read and
commented upon, his avowed belief
(disbelief), and may, indirectly,
have weight with many.
