secluded valleys, where tbe soil is of

of the landscape are the rounded snm-

The higher hills are clothed in the
exuberant and diversified vegetation cf
the tropiral forest, where tree ferns
flourish, and great gnrn trees and moan-
tain palms tower aloft. At lower levels
ore the cedar and mahogany, walnut
and laurel, with many others noted for

do well hero, and tbe great pastures of
the northeast and southeast support vast
herds of cattle and horses, which Euffice
not only for tbe needs of tbe island, bat

There are no poisonous reptiles to be
feared, but insects of questionable char

Tbis island indeed were a paradise
without them; even with tbem tbe
inhabitants seem to experience little
trouble. Tbe worst of these are tbe
scorpions, rentipeds, tarantulas, wasps,
mosquitoes, some specie of ants, ticks,
chigoes and fleas. The beat of a tropical

though rarely exceeding 90 degrees, is
continuous. Is conducive to tbe breed

STORY OF A HAT.
Revealing tlie Secret of Its Two Trips
Around a Tabic.
A number of literary men were at ouo
time gathered in a well known chop
houso in New York. The conversation
was of course brilliant, and the repartee
sparkled with mirth aud wit. During a
lull in the talk tbe door slowly opened,
and an old southern darky, grizzled
with age, poked bis bead in and then
slowly drew bis body in after bini. A
waiter started to eject him, when one
of tbo gentlemen cried:
"Wait a moment. Let s seo what the
old ly wants."
The darky bobbed np to the table
where tbis gentleman sat aud held out
bis bat. Throwing a wink to bis neigh
bors, the gentleman took tlio hat and,
making a show of placing something
into it. passed it on to tho next man,
who did likewise. Tbe hat made a tour
of tho room, to tho puzzled wondor of
tho darky. Tho last to receive it sol
emnly banded it back with a polite
bow, saying: -
"There, sir, don't yon think yon bave
something to be thankful for?"
Tbe old darky looked solemnly around
the company aud, mechanically taking
tbe bat, be said:
"Oen'men, I'ze indeed glad dat I got
then do hat hack!"
Tbe reply was so thoroughly enjoyed
by tho company that the darky left the
place a much richer man than when he

A GREAT BOAT RACE.
THE BENNINGTON'S CRACK CREW GOT
A COSTLY SURPRISE.
The Story of a Fourth of July Bowing
Contest at Honolulu Which Emptied the
Pockets and Lacerated the Feelings of
Caele Sam's Jackie.
"About as dismal a Fourth of July
as ever I experienced on board a man-o'-war,"
said an ex-sailor of the navy
now living in Washington to a report
er, "was Independence day not many
years ago down in the harbor of Hono
lain. Tbo Bennington bad an all star
racing boat's crew. The eight had just
happened to bo assigned to the Ben
ningtou in a bnnch before she left for
ber Pacific cruise, and several of the
oarsmen had been members of the Co
lumbia's crack boat's crew that walloped
all of the British navy's boats' crews in
English waters a few years before.
Tbo Bennington's cutter was one of
the best in the navy, nnd Ebe bad been
built for a xacer. Before we left tbo
Mare Island navy yard for south Pacific
waters the ship's racing crew had easily
beaten all of tho other crews of the
ships lying at the yard, including tho
tiptop crew of the Olympia and tho
Boston's fine crew. We thought that
we wero about ue warm as they mako
'em after our crew put it on so many
other man-o'-war crews, giving tbem a
couple of minutes tho start of us, too,
on numerous occasions and still beating
"Tbe petiple of Honolulu arranged
an aquatic festival for tbe Fourth of
July the Americans down there cele
brated tho Fourth just as enthusiastic
ally as we do np here and tho Ben
nington's crew figured in it largely.
Our ship's colors were at tne fore iu the
two races tbat were run with picked
Kanaka crews, nnd tho third and last
race of tho day was ono in which our
crackajack eight was tofignro, the other
races having been won by snberews
practically picked at random from
among the strongest seamen.
"Wo thonght this race was at our
mercy. It was to bo a four sided affair
one crew of Kanaka sugar field workers,
a crew of Kanaka policemen and tbo
racing crew of the yacht Eleanor, be
longing to Mr. Slater of Providence,
that had palled into Honolulu barber
from Japan a few days before. Our
crew didn't pay much attention to the
yacht's racing crew and were only fig
nring on tho distance they could beat
the crew of Kanaka policemen, which
seemed tbe most formidable.
"The race was over tbe four mile
course carefully blocked oct in the har
bor which was very smooth by the
Honolulu aqnatio sportsmen, and tbe
start was first rate. There wasn't a man,
foro or aft, on the Bennington that
didn't stand to go broke to the extent
of at least a month's pay on tbe success
of tbe Bennington's crew, and wo bad
to give 3 to' 1, too, for it was generally
conceded that we bad the race at onr
"Tho start, as I said, was good, and
tbe Bennington's crew showed in front
first aud started out apparently to make
a runaway raco of it. The Kauaka po
licemen's crew trailed after them, pull
ing steadily, then the Kanaka sugar
workers and, a good ten lengths to the
rear, the Eleanor's crew. This was the
way it looked for tbe finish when the
Bennington's crew rounded the stake
boat and started for the return trip.
. "Some of tbe Honolulu men who had
their money up on tho two Kanaka
crews actually began to square accounts,
and thocry, 'It'sallover Bennington!'
was heard all over the bay. When tho
sUtkeboat was rounded, it was noticed
that the Eleanor's boat was sort of get
ting a move on itself, and tbe men
were working like machines at a long,
steady stroke that certainly looked as if
it was cutting down the Bennington's
lead aud tho lead of the two Kanaka
"Two minutes after tbe stakeboat
was rounded the Eleanor's gang were
right abreast of tbe Kanaka cutters and
gaiuiug ou them with every stroke, and
the cox'nn of the Bennington's cutter,
hearing the yells of warning from the
Bennington, bluejackets ashore, looked
behind him and saw the Eleanor cutter
only two lengths behind him aud com
ing like an electric launch, unr crew
was tired, and that's all there was
"The Eleanor's crew bad held them
selves in for the finish, and they oer-
tainly did make a Garrison finish of it.
The yacht's cutter shot ahead of our
cutter a good mile from homo, and then,
to multe tbe thing more galling, tbe
crew actnally stopped rowing, until the
Eienmugtoh's crew was alongside again.
Then they took to tbe oars again, and
from then on it was a bowling farce.
The Eleanor's crew just romped their
cutter in ten lengths ahead of our cut
ter aud the Kanakas a quarter of a
mile in the rear.
"You never saw 6uch a disgusted lot
of men in your life as the men and
officers on the Bennington. Tbe Elea
nor's ship company bad taken all of the
3 to 1 money they could get on board
our ship, for they knew they had a good
thing np their sleeve. The Eleanor's
crw on the whole trip around the
world that was wound np at San Fran
cisco had not been beaten once in a cut
ter race, and the yacht's sailors bad
made all kinds of money in betting on
their c rew. It was a minor sort of con
solation for us when we found out tbat
five of tbe Eleanor's racing crew were
ex-American inan-o'-war's men.."

"How can I learn tho rules of the
bouse?" asked a newly elected Irish
member of tho late Mr. Parnell. ".By
breaking them," was the prompt reply
of the Irish leader, who, as is well
known, spoke from experience ou tbe
point.v But few members would care to
adopt that heroic method of obtaining
tbe desired knowledge, and their task
in mastering tho rules is rendered all
the more difficult by tho curious fact
that many of those regulations are un

If yon are going to prospect in Alaska
and expect to travel much, a pair of
good "Siwash dogs are very essential
almost indispensable. Theso dogs
greatly differ from our domesticated
dogs, taking to tbe harness like a duck
to water. They do not bark at stran
gers. They aro kind and affectionate,
showing the wolf in them only among
their kind. It seems to bo against their
principles to get off tho trail to let an
other team pass.
This means a fight, an exciting epi
sode if the teams number five or six
dogs each. In an instant tbo wiftlest
confusion takes place. Dogs, harness
and each driver with a club in bis band

dogs being knocked senseless. The dogs
