I have mudo several little trios to the
junction, East Cairo and Hodges park with
nc. object in view, but to nee the tact no
ticed in the city papers; but alas! not a
word was said. Yet many other ladies have
these thinrrs recorded for tlii'in.
Ah, and if they only intended L'oiii'' a trio.
the lact somehow came to the ear of the
pnHS and brought two notices instead of
one. Thus -"Mrs. and her interestinL'
children went to Villa Uidyu yesterday on
a visit to friends." Xi-xt morning's Bulle
tin would be thus --.Mrs. and her
intcreslin-,' children did not to Villa
Ki l'i' as we stated, but she contemplates
an early journey."
Now why should that woman trr-t two
pull's about the trip she did not take, while
I take them twice and "ct none'; How did
you tind out sin: thought ot .'nine;, that's
the question? Surely she didn't write and
tell The Un.Li.TiN and yet, li she didn't
how could you know! I can think of no
way. unli ss yi.u are omnipresent.
These things happened before the days
of teleph ines, in fact at a time when wise
old Cairo was pitying the inventor of tlu'-e
instruments, und calling him ri crazy
My husband is a merchant hs you know
and our daughters sometimes go with him
w hen he goes to buy goods; yet all tb-se
trips bring no local notices; und wc some
times feel as if we pay for the papers to no
AVhen half a dozen children play, eat
and fight together a couple ol hours at my
neighbor's over the way, the matter is men
tioned as a pleasant juvenile party held at
the mansion ot Mr. and Mrs. .
When I have a houseful of invited chil
dren for six hours, an acre of cakes and
confectionery, string band and various
other etc., etc., not one word is eveii said
When my neighbor gives ten cents to a
quilt lottery, or accompanied by two other
ladies who carry a pin-cushion, lamp-mat
and religious tract to a starving Umily,
she anil her friends are held up by The
Bulletin as public workers, Hnd praised
tor their philanthropic deeds.
My buckets of good soup, bowls of tea,
baskets of potatoes and dishes of toast for
i poor and sick people are never mentioned;
and Sarah ami Louisa (my dauuhtersi have
nothing hut the approval of their own
souls for their untiring help to the poor.
They sit up of nights with those sick peo
ple's next door, and wash and dresi those
neglected children, and make themselves
If some obscure individual takes dinner
with Mrs. The Bulletin finds it cut
and says, "Wc nrc delighted to learn that
Mr. Z's uncle's brother-in-law is in town.
He is the guest of Mr. and Mrs. .
IS'nw I have plenty of visitors, and some
ol them say prominent people, but their
names are never mentioned while they visit
Some ladies in Cairo can stump their
foot on a grain of corn, and the public is at
once notified of their precarious condition,
and great anxiety is expressed regarding
their health. I can tall through a hole in
the sidewalk, cripple myself for a week,
use liniments, bandages and salves for days
before I am able to walk even with a crutch,
hut no a word of this leaks out through
the papers. And yet, remember I have
always been a paying subscriber.
Mrs. 's children havo the measles so
slightly that she does not miss her usual
afternoon visits and cveninn entertaiuinents.
yet every paper gives an account of every

The Combative Clam.
In diving for clams (as in octopus
diving) it is usual to provide oneself
with a sharp pointed stake or an iron
rod. At Artutaki, when the tide is out,
clams are picked up everywhere on tho
reef. At Mauka men divo for them on
the ocean side of the narrow fringing
reef when the sea is smooth. On reaching
the bottom the diver stabs the gaping
clam, which for tho mollusk is very
tenacious of life nt, once firmly grasp
tho weapon. The diver now tugs with
botii hands until the clam is dislodged.
A couple of expert natives with a canon
will get as many as a hundred in a day
when a feast is in preparation. At
Manihiki and llakaanga, the largest
clams are about two spans in length,
the animal itself being sufliciently largo
to satisfy the hunger of threu persons.
Clam diving is woman's work in those
atolls. Yet it is surprising how few ac
cidents occur. Tho reason for this may

ashoro in baskets, they live for some
time. Children in their play are apt to
put their lingers between tho open
valves, and so gel caught. Their
screams soon bring their parents to the
rescue, which is effected by slabbing
the clam through the cavity for the
bvssus. The supply of chillis iu the
Pacific is inexhaustible. If a party of
divers should remove all the large lines
from any particular locality for u grand
feast, and should return next year to the
same spot, no dill'ereneo would bo per

clam in these warm waters. Pearls of

Invention Tor Calming the Stormy Sea.
A recent cable from Ismdon, says:
Ihe inventive genius of a Scotchman
has, if we are to believo tho Scotch pa
per of to-day, found away to aeconi
plish something which man has never
beforo dreamed of - namely, ealmin"
tho stormy sea. Mr. Shield's, of Perth?
has invented away of stilling tho wave
of the ocean, and put it into successful '
operation. He sinks bottles lilled with
oil; tho bottles are opened hy a process
devised by the inventor, aiid the oil,
ascending lo the surface, stills the
waves, thus reducing the proverb
about "pouring oil upon the troubled
waters" to practice. The Invention
has been tested at Pclerliead, It is said,
with amazing success, Tho Scotch pv
pers are full of it. Tho Invention may
not ho practicable ntmn the seas, where
a vast quantity of oil would manifestly
bo reuulred to still adaneerous storm.
but if tho claim of Shields, the inven
tor, are genuine, it could ho made very
useful in calming open roadsteads or
illy-shelicred harbors. , .
