Then, too, 1 remem ber all the pretty girls who were in the choruses of the several plays put cn in those days. Many of those who today are staid matrons were in those choruses." When asked concerning the story of her designing of the Hawaiian coat-of-arms, Mrs. Strong smiled and ad mitted that she had had that honor, and further that she had designed the flag of the monarchy, and also the seal of the Order of Oceania. "King Kalakaua was much interest ed in the designing of the coat-of-arms, and took occasion to visit and see how the work was progressing just about the time when I was wield ing a piece of crayon and deeply Intot the spirit of the undertaking. The' aquarium is new to During my stay here, I painted a large number of different varieties of fishes for Kala kaua which he intended using in a book which he was going to write. T don't think he ever wrote the book."! RArs. Strong, although she profess ed considerable modesty in admitting it. said that it was she who designed, the clothes of Queen Kapiolani for ner trip to nmgiana to aitena one or the festivals, given by Queen Victorir. "I cannot help but admit that her clothes were pretty," said Mrs. Strong. "One dress, in particular, was a sea green holoku with coral trimmings." In speaking of her book 'The Girl from Home," Mrs. Strong says -that the two princes, Kaipo and Aimoku, the adopted sons of Queen LiliuokalanI, were the only two characters which she did not draw from her . imagina tion. The other characters, she said, she took some liberties with. "I see that Honolulu has an up-to-date street car system," she went on. "When I was here, we thought that the old mule trams were the great est invention ever. The natives used to invite each other, to go for rides on the 'mule cars.' The drivers were not allowed to whip the mules, nei ther were they allowed to swear, and the mules used to act up frightfully Hhe greater part of the time. - On such occasions, the drivers used to Indulge in little brainstorms on the front plat form, and it ilsed to be worth a trip to watch them. "It is very displeasing to see Wai kiki so populated, so to speak. It used to be so quiet and beautiful that you felt you owned the entire beach." "How did I first meet Mr. Herbert and his family?" she asked in re sponse to a question. "Well, there was a party of us staying at the Mac-, farlane place at Waikiki for the week end," the went on. "One morning we got un at S o'clock and there was no' breakfast prepared. Ten o'clock came and still nothing to eat, so we decided to walk along the beach. As we passed Mr.' Herbert's place, we looked on the beautiful veran I mean ianai and there was a boun teous breakfast spread out. Well, Mrs. Herbert came out then and asked us all in, and that was "where the acquaintance started.
