A MAN'S NARROW ESCAPE FROM
A VEGETABLE OCTOPUS.
A Remarkable Kxpertenee in the Monn
tains of Hawaii A Marderosi Plant
That Often Causes a Horrible Death.
A Xatnrallst'a Story.
In the latter part of the year 1867 1 was
commissioned by the Belgian government
to find a certain rare wandering plant that
was belieTed to grow on the higher elopes
of Mauna Kea, a large extinct volcano sit
uated in the northern part of Hawaii. I
had a station tmilt on one of the wooded
slopes of the mountain, far away from any
other habitation. My only companion was
u native who had lived all his life on this
part of the island. About t wice a month
he would visit the seacoast to obtain need
ful supplies for our camp. This native,
who said that his ancestors were "big
chiefs," whose bones lay secretly buried in
caves on the mountain sides, was very old,
although he could climb canyons and scale
lava cliffs with wonderful agility.
During one of my botanizing excursions
I passed by t he mouth of a narrow canyon,
or porpe, and I asked Pili, the old native,
if he had ever explored the same. Pili
suddenly became interested in his pipe and
didn't know anything about the gulch and
didn't understand what I said. This was
rather strange iu Pili, for natives general
ly know every rock and tree in the section
where they live, and I knew Pili was lying
when he said he did not understand me.
So naturally I determined to examine
into the mysterious ravine. Some time
after this I was walking with Pili down a
gentle slope when I saw a number of bones.
Pili stopped. lie walked back a few rods
and sat down on a stump. Not a word
would he say. I began examining the
bones, and for two hours or more puzzled
my brain over a problem as I had never
done before. 'What I found was this:
A circular area of about 1X) yards in di
ameter, thickly covered with the bleached
remains of birds, animals and human be
ings. These ghastly relics were scattered
among the shrubs and grass. The larger
bones were near the center; in fact, I found
that the bones became gradually smaller
as I approached the periphery of this cir
cular boneyard. In the center of the cir
cle was a well-like opening in the ground,
from which eminated a sickening odor.
N'o vegetation grew within fifty feet of
this cavity. How came this hole with its
horrible stench? How came these bones
here? How came they to be arranged
about the central opening? These ques
tions continually presented themselves,
but they remained unanswered.
A deep mystery seemed to hang over the
spot. It was (rrowing d:irk. I heard Pili
calling and hurried to him. He pointed in
terror to the center of the bone covered
area. A shadow was thrown on the scene
by a rising bank of clouds. But I declare
that I saw rising from the pit a visible
vapor, a column of visible fog or smoke
or gas that was luminous. Spellbound I
g."j;ed at the spectral column. Near the
ground it had the appearance of a phos
phorescent flame and gradually became
fainter as it ascended. Your imagination
will l'ave to picture the unearthly phenom
enon. I'ili palled at my arm and in si
lence we left the spot, and we did not loiter
by the wayside.
As I was looking for a simple plant and
not blood curdling manifestations, I was
inclined to break camp and leave. But by
morning my nerves were in letter onler,
and I went back to the scene of the evening
adventure. I could find no clew to the
mystery, and the matter gradually went
out of mind as I prosecuted my labors.
Hut I had occasion after a time to visit a
spot near where I had seen the canyon about
which Pili was so apparently ignorant.
One evening I made known my intention
to I'ili to return to the place and to explore
"When?" said Pili.
"In the morning," I replied.
Without a word the old native arose
from his mat on the floor and departed.
He was gone all night. He returned by
sunrise, liearing on his shoulders bundle.
When we reached the canyon he stopped
and unpacked his load. I saw a stone
idol, curious in shape; he placed it on the
ground and then took a small pig from his
bundle. Making a fire, he sprinkled some
thing iu the ilames, muttered strange
sounds and made symbols iu the air with
his fingers. The animal offering was placed
before the idol. After he completed his
strange rites he said that I might never
come back, but he had done what he could
to preserve my life. He would wait until
the going down of the sun, and then, if I
did not come back, he would wail for me
as did his fathers long, long ago when a
son fell in battle. Then lie sat down, cov
ered up his head and was silent.
All this made me feel uncomfortable.
The natives of the Hawaiian islands are
supiHjsed to be Christianized, but iu time
of danger or trouble many often turn to
the discarded gods of their fathers. I
knew Pili lielieved that great danger
awaited any one who ascended the ravins.
Hut I went. I had gone about a mile,
when over the tops of tree ferns I saw a
waving mass of sea greeu foliage undulat
ing in tlm wind. The object looked like a
huge bunch of thick leaved seaweed, and
the peculiar motion of the same arrested
my attention. I was now' over 300 feet
away from the curious object and hurried
to obtain a closer view. A wall of fern
covered lava about ten feet high stopped
my course. Climbing up so that I just
could see over the edge, I saw an object
such as the eyes of civilized man never le
fore lieheld. Imagine a bunch of seaweed
about twelve feet high, the edge of each
piece lined with fine streamers which radi
ated in all directions and trembled like
fine wire Bpirals, the whole object moving
like the fringes of a sea anemone.
I was wearing a heavy felt hat with a
wide brim, and I pushed it back from my
forehead to get it better view. As I moved
my arm the strange object ceased quiver
ing and every vibrating antenna or stream
er pointed directly at me. Just then my
foot slipped from a jutting rock on which
I was standing aud I fell, but not before
something cleaved the air with a horrible
hissing tioise and struck on my hat crown.
I felt the force of a blow as I fell, and
knew no more for a time. I regained con
sciousness after a short time and lay In a
partial stupor. The wall above me was
stripped of its verdure and 1 saw a long,
sinewy, snakelike object writhing, twist
ing and curling on the rocks. It had
missed its prey, aud a low, angry hum
filled the air. Honolulu Advertiser.
The Dog in China.
The Chinese, notwithstanding the fact
that they eat the flesh of the dog and es
teem it a great delicacy, honor their dogs
more highly and take better care of them
than any other race of people. In every

whose sole trade is that of making coffins
far departed canines. Chicago Herald.
