The World's Larfnl Oirhanl, -
In the wild dist rict lx.-tn-een Hana and
Haiku, duriiijr, July and August, the most
bwiutifnl and largest tipple orchards in the
world can be seen. The Wilderness of
Koolftn, as tho district is called, contains a
forest of native wild apple trees, countless
In number, stretching from the sea far up
the mountain (tides. The trees vary from
forty to fifty feet in height, and in the har
vest season, from July to September, are
loaded down with fruit, some white, but
mostly red. A person standing in the
midst of this orchard can look arouiul him
for miles, tip the mountains and toward
the road, and tlio only thing in view will
be one vast grove of apple trees literally
red with ripe and ripening fruit,, the
branches of the trees beiiiltog to the
ground with the bounteous harvest.
The crop of this extensive apple orchard
which nature planted in the solitary waste
would fill a fleet of 100 steamers. The or
chard stretches over a country from five to
ten miles wide by twenty miles long, and
many of the larger trees bear at le.-i.st fifty
barrels apiece. The fruit is delicious for
table use, and will appease both thirst anil
hunfrer, but as yet no one has taken the
trouble to make any commercial rise of tr?
apples. When ripe they will not keep
more than a week, but they make excel
lent jelly and jam, and simply for the lack
of a little American enterprise millions of
barrels of apples are permitted annually to
fall to the ground and rot. Honolulu Cor.
She Didn't Mean IU
A girl who was accustomed to conclude
all her stories with the words, "Wasnt it
funny?" was telling her mother of the sor
row which had come to a school frieml.
"Just think," she began, "I asked Annie
Piatt this morning if she knew why Mary
Wallis, that pretty girl from Iowa, wore
black, and she said that Mary was out in a
sailboat with her mother and two brothers
last summer, and a squall came up, anil
the boat-was capsized, and they were all
drowned except Mary. Wasn't it funny"
"I shouldn't consider it a subject of
mirth," said her mother dryly, and then
the fcirl, who was really full of sympathy
for her new friend, realized what she had
said. Youth's Companion.
Saluting with (lie Hat.
Before the invention of wij;s the bat was
rarely remo veil excrpt to salute -mhers,
especially royal personages. It was worn
at table when ladies or persons of rank
were present. Except when sa) u ting royalt y
it was the custom merely to mis? the hand
to t he hat, somewhat after the manner of a
military salute. When it iwcame the mode
to wear a profusion of false hair the hat
was less nefled as a protection for the
bead and was carried under the arm. Cin

Pageant Marine Elizabeth's Reign.
Tournaments were maintained until the
end of Elizabeth's reign. But we bear lit
tle of them, and it is not likely that tbey
retained much of tlieir old popularity.
One Sir Henry Lee entered the tilt yard
every year until age prevented him. They
also kept np the sport of tilting at the
quintain in the water. But their favorite
amusements were the pageant and the
play. The paireant came before the play,
and while rhe latter was performed on a
rough scaffold in an inn yard, the former
was provided with splendid dresses, music,
Bonus and properties of every kind. There
were pageants for the reception of the king
when he made a procession into the city;
there were court pageants; there were pri
vate pageants in Ki-eat men's bouses; there
were pageants got up by companies.

"I don't know that I ever quite estimated
the value of my clothes until one day last

of a well known citizen. "We have been
