Hawaiian Ex-Consul Sends a Message
Through Senator Hnnna.
Colorado Springs, Col., July 11).?H. P.
TJllibridge, who was consul general from
Hawaii to Japan during the reign of
King Kalakaua, has written a letter to
Senator Hanna, in which he says:
"Please say to both McKinley and
Sherman that I know whereof 1 speak,

Hawaii are exactly as intimated in the
editorials of the Japan Herald, notwith?

necessa-y to justify Japan's idea that
Hawaii will be an easier conquest than

SOMETHING TO KNOW.
Tt may be worth something to know
that the very best medicine for restoring
the tired-out nervous system to a healthy
vigor is Electric Bitters. This medicine
is pnrely vegetable, acts by giving tone
to the nerve centres in the stomach,gently
stimulates the Liver and Kidneys and
aids these organs in throwing off impur?
ities in the blood. Electric Bitters im?
proves the appetite, aids digestion and is
pronounced by those who have tried it
as the very best blood, purifier and nerve
tonic. Try it. Sold for ">0o or $1.00 per

"Ill tho year 1888 a pair of great tits
built a uost iu a woodeu letter box which
stood in tho road iu the village of Row
fant, Sussex, iuto which letters, eta,
were posted and which was cleared
daily. Uufortuuately one of tho birds
was killed by a boy, and the nest was
not finished. In 1889 a pair completed
it and luid seven eggs and were sitting,
bnt oue day an uuusual number of post?
cards were dropped in, nearly filling
the box, and causing the birds to desert
it, when the nest and the eggs were re?
moved. In 1890 a pair built a now nest
and the hen laid seven oggs and succeed?
ed iu rearing five young, although the
letters continued to be posted daily nud
when taken out were often found lying
on tho back of the sitting bird, whe
never left the nest The birds went in
and out by tho slit for the letters."
Connected with the robin thero is a
sacrod tradition accounting for the coloi
of the bird's breast to which I need not
further allude, except to hazax the
guess that the little sougster is piously
disposed, so that ono iB scarcely sur?
prised to hoar that on several occasions
ho, or she rather, has built in a church,
and once affixed a nest to the Bible as
it lay on the reading desk. It is gratify?
ing to learn that the vicar would not al?
low her to bo disturbed und provided
himself with another copy of tho sacred
volumo from which to road tho lessons.
?Pall Mall Magazine.
President Lincoln's occasional on
conventionality of manner sometime!'
astonished and perhaps shocked u little
those who were accustomed to formal
methods of procedure in all official
tilings. It is on record that Charles
Sumner, who had very little sense oi
humor, was really grieved when, dur?
ing the darkest days of the war, Lin?
coln suddenly asked him to try his fa?
vorite game of "putting up backs."
The recent volumo of memoirs of Frau
cis W. Bird of Massachusetts borrows a
narration of tho Hon. Peleg W. Chan?
dler's, relating Mr. Bird's experience in
presenting to Mr. Lincoln souio resolu?
tions of tho Massachusetts legislature
on tho subject of emancipation.
Arrived in Washington, says the
story, the messenger, by appointment,
met the president at 11 o'clock tho next
morning to present this rcsolvo of the
commonwealth of Massachusetts. Tho
chief magistrate sat iu an armchaii
while tho emissary presented tho doc?
ument with a littlo speech. Tho presi?
dent took the document, slowly unroll?
ed it, and remarked:
"Well, it isn't long enongh to scare
The Massachusetts official said, as he
left tho room:
"That is certainly u mast extraordi?
nary person to bo president of the Unit?
Whatever unfavorable impression Mr.
Bird gained of Mr. Lincoln on this oo
ensiou was modified aftcrwnrd, and be
was an ardent supporter and admirer
of him. His biographer remarks that
the appreciation of Lincoln as a farsee
iug statesman was a mutter of slow
growth. Nearly all the public men oi
tho early days of tho war agreed in a
lower estimate of him than they soon
camo to hold. It has been said that
probably not one fairly estimated bin.":
at tho beginning of tho war.?Youth's
Raphael's Three G-rooes.
An interesting account of tho history
of Raphael's famous picture of ' 'The
Three Graces," which adorns tho Due
d'Aumalo's gallery at Chnutilly, has
been given by M. Pousouuilho iu Paris.
It was picked up for a more trifle in
Italy among a lot of old furniture by
Hcuri Reboul, Homo time deputy foi
Hcrault in the legislative assembly.
After tho fall of Napoleon ho came
back to Franco iu a state bordering on
destitution and sent his wifo to Paris
with this and a few other works of art,
hoping to get a little ready money by
their sale. At tho end of negotiations
extending over six months tho authori?
ties of the Louvre informed her that
they had no funds at their disposal.
"Tho Three Graces" was therefore put
op at auction in 1823 and withdrawn,
as ?120 was the highest bid. At last
Mine. Reboul found an English custom?
er, who gave her $7?0 for tho master?
piece. It passed through several bunds
and was ultimately acquired by the
Duo d'Aumale for $127,000?more than
n thousand times tho price offered Jialf
a century before.?Boston Transcript.
How to Drink Water.
Tho effects produced by the drinking
of water vary with the manner in
which it is drunk. If, for instance, a
pint of cold water ho swallowed as a
large draft, or if it be taken in two
portions with a short interval between,
certain definite, effects follow?effects
which differ from those which would
have resulted from tho same quantity
taken by Bipping.
Sipping is a powerful stimulant to
the circulation?a thing which ordinary
drinking is not. During tho act of sip?
ping tho action of tho nervo which
slows tho beats of the heart is abolish?
ed, and as n consequence that organ
contracts much more rapidly, the pulse
beats more quickly and tho circulation
in various parts of tho body is increased.
In additiou to this wo also find that the
pressure under which tho bile is se?
creted is saised by tho sipping of fluid.
Fish In Aquariums Lost by Ovorcare.
Fish kept in small aquariums at
home are often lost through oven are.
The possessor of a small tank that
needs cleaning is very apt to take the
fish oat and place them, say, in a dish
of water while he gives the tank a good,
thorough cleaning. This is tho worst
thing possible for the fish, which are
very susceptible to shock and likely to
receive actual injury in bundling. Dis?
turbance of tho .fish should, as far as
possible, be uvoided, but it is far bettor
to clean tho tank with the fish in it
than to remove them ?New York Sni-.

He is not Nonh, nor Noah's son, nor n
Levite, nor John the Baptist, nor yet the
wandering Jew, for he was with Noah in
theaik. Th<) Scriptures make mention
of him, particularly in John, Mark and
Luke, so that we may believe that he is
no impostor. He knows no parents, and
he never lay upon his mother's breast.
His beard is such as no man ever wore.
He goes bare footed and bare-legged. He
wears no hat in summer or winter, but
often appears with a crown upon -his
head. His coat is neither knit uor spun,
is not hair, silk, linen, woole**, bark or
sheepskin, yet It abounds with a variety
of colors aud fits close to the skin. He
is very temperate; he never drinks any?
thing but cold water. He wo"ld rath?r
take his dinner in a farmer's barn than
in n kiug's palace. He is .very watchful;
but he .sleeps not in bed, but sits in a pe?
culiar position with his clothes on. He
was alive at the trial of Jesus; a great
many people heard him. He once preached |
a short sermou which convinced a mau
of his sin, aud caused him to weep bit?
terly. Ho never was married^ret ho has
favorites whom ho roves dearly, for If he
has but one morsel of meat he divides it
among them. Though he never rides on
horseback he Is in some respects equip?
ped as horsereeu are. He is an advocate
of early rising, though he never retires to
