Hj The attention of the people of Honolulu is strongly attracted
foward Wuiluku as a place of business and of summer homes. In
the latter rogard. the opportunities to secure some of the most
lovely building site i imaginable are numerous. Along the Iao
Valley road from town to the reservoir site is a long stretr'i of
unoccupied ground, tho view from which is a real Heuluh Land,
with tho Iao Valley and mountains for a background, a boun Hess
pxpanse of sea view for a f areround, Haleakala looming up i.i the
distant??, and ten thousand acres of velvety, green cm 5 s: haling
o!I int.) dim. given ribbons us far as tli3 eye cm roach. Add to
this, pure water and tin liveliest climate on the Islands, and one
h is an i lea of the charni'ng opportunities for securing a delight
ful summer home in Wuiluku.
The proposition to segregate the Islands into counties with
munk-ip il governments may fail to pass at the coming legislature,
bat if so, the true reason will not be that we are not ready for it.
Tii-j v.itors on Maui, whether Hawaiian or haole. fully understand
the proposition of self government, and are quite ablo to attend to
tiu'ir own a!fairs without hel j or advice from Honolulu. Taj idle
claim th it a-cami.u;.g:i of cju ration is needed to lit the Haw.iiians

:.;lfUh niture in or em mating from Honolulu are more tliv.i likely,
however, todefe.it tho measure in tho approaching legislature.

Strange Dep-Sta Anlmale.
A government report bv Prof. C.
Brown Gixwln tells soma curious facts
About, the denizens of tho great ocean
depths. In the Introduction Prof.
Goode says: l-It seems probablo that
there are many inhabitants of the
deep that are too swift, too wary,
too cunning or too largo thu. to bo
taken. It cannot be doubted, for ex
ample, that somewhere in the sea, at
some link nown distance below the sur
face, there are living certain fishlike
aninals unknown to science and of
great size, which come occasionally
to the surface and give foundation to
such storiosTis those of the sea-ser
pent." Since deep-sea dredging be
gan, more than six hundred species
of deep-sea fishes have been discover
ed, all of a more or less wonderful na
ture; but it is very rare that large
fishes are taken. Tho net on tho bot
tom, dragged along by a wire three
or four miles long, catcVes only the
very sluggish forms; tho large and ac
tive animals dart away and escape as
the strange object comes bumping a
long over the bottom or ploughing
through the ooxe. From time to time
reports come of strange animals be
ing seen at sea, and while these re
ports have generally been scouted as
sailors' yarns, recent investigations
show that they may be true. There
are well authenticated cases where a
creature known as the eel-shark has
been seen a genuine sea serpent 40
feet long or so. Another well known
but rare marine monster is the ribbon
fish, of about the same length a beau
tiful creature with rich scarlet tins.
Still another resident of the marine
depths that occasionally strays to tho
surface is the giant squid or devil fish.
These creatures generally put in an
appearance only when they have been
injured in some way. While the larger
animals of the deep sea are well
known, tho conditions in which tliev
live are well understood. The ocean
bed has been reached with a net in
about six miles of water, and that
there are valleys and depressions of
greater depth can well be imagined.
The situations iu these vast depths
is not conducivo to strongly-built,
heavy and solidboned animals, such
as the carnivorous whales and others;
the enormous strain would shatter
such an animal and crush it todeath,
the pressure being at five miles below
tho surface five tons to the square
inch in contrast to tne fifteen pounds
to the square inch on the surface.
The objects lowered into this region
como up frayed and worn; wood is
twistol out of shape, the copper
frames of ther jiometers bent, and the
glass itself reduced to powder. The
temperature is low; it is either above
freezing or below it; one record made
at a mile showing less than 2D de
grees, while others at three or four
miles range from 30 degrees to 34 de
grees. Animals to exist here must
be virtual sponges through which
the water mnst circulate and inset
otfsettiug tho pressure. Nearly all
the lishes so far found in the deep sea
are, when taken from the water,
found to he so loosely constructed
and porous that many drop apart,
while tho bones aro mere tissue filled
with mucus. Yet though the tish is
a literal sponge in tho deop sea, it
may bo a ferocious creature, with the
strength to rend large and powerful
animals. The large fishes of the abys
mal depths are undoubtedly light-givers,
their bodies emitting a brilliant
light by which they recognize each
other iu the trackless wates.
Chinese Posies ih Warfare.
The mobility of thu Chinese has al
ready seriously affected the military
situation in China. Mounted Chinese,
like the Boers, have very excellent
ponies. Sir Walter Gilbert, ii'his
"Small Horses in Warfare," has' an
interesting description... of, the
animals commonly used by the boI
diery. They aro bred - in 1 the
northern part of China, where im
mense droves run on tho "plain three
or foUr hundred miles from Pekin,
and tho breeders bring them 'down
every j-ears for salo in the more pop
ulous districts. Thoy average
about 13.1 iu height, and though iu
wretched condition when brought to
market, they pick up rapidly or
good food. They are usually short
and deep in the barrel, have good
legs and feet, and fairly good
shoulders. G reat speed is not to be
expected from their conformation,
but they can carry very heavy
weights, aud their power of endu
rance arc remarkable. Tho allied
Powers will probably commandeer
some of this stock when the op
portunity arrives and their own
niouuts have been depleted by the
wastage of war.
