SANITARY INSTRUCTION FOR
The last Legislature arrrorriated the eum of
$1,500 for the preparation and printing of a
book on tbe abote subject in the native language,
and appointed a committee to PurrTi?e the work
coDsi-rting of tie lion. W. M. Gibson, His Excel
lency J. M. Kapena, and the lion. W. R. Castle.
Tbe committee have entered upon the discharge
of their important duties, and the following is the
Elish version of a chapter on Dwelling Houses :
Tbe character of the dwelling of man indicates
the degree of his civilization. The wildest kind
of men found in Sumatra, and other lands of the
Indian Ocean, lodge in hollows of trees like mon
keys ; the savage of America, a little more ad
vanced, make a small rude thelter of eticks and
ekins of wild animals ; the somewhat civilized
barbarians of parta cf Asia, and of the central
parts of America, make huts of mud baked in
the eun ; but enlightened people of Europe and
America, and of other parts of tbe world, make
enduring houses of e tone and timber.
Now the condition of Hawaiians when discov
ered by Captain Cook was not utterly wild like
certain East Indian islanders, nor savage like the
lowest native tribes of America or of Australia,
but was of a character etjled barbarous, some
what like that of the Mexicans in America, or of
the Tartars in Asia. One hundred years ago
llawaiians lodged in pili grass thatched houses,
or huts, which were, considering the habits of
the people, good shelters against inclemencies of
weather at ihat time. Hut these small huts of
the olden time were not suitable to promote any
decency of manners, and became unfavorable to
the health of the people when they began to
adopt a more artificial, that is a more civilized
style of living. The barbarous Hawaiian of 1778
was the most of his time in the open air, or oc
cupied in the sea, and as he wore little or no
clothing his naked or hardy body could re6t very
well in a small thatched hut. lut how different
with the civilized Hawaiian of 1878. He wears
all the variety of clothing worn by the most civil
ized man ; ho partakes of a new and varied diet,
he remains much in-doors, like the white foreign
ers, and is tecoming a stranger to the hardihood
of the sea, therefore he needs a larger and a more
weather proof dwelling than was suited to bis
forefathers one hundred years ago.
llawaiians of this day appreciate the need of
larger and better habitations, and it must be
mentioned to their credit that they have in a
short space of time made great improvements in
their dwellings. Many of the peasantry of
christian Europe have continued for ages to live
in mud and stick hovels, and multitudes of the
christianized Africans in America are content
with a stick and mud cabin, and dirt floor to this
day, whilst lumber is abundant in their vicinity
at less than one cent a foot ; whereas llawaiians
of the second and third generation 6ince the era
of heathenism and barbarism are erecting every
where throughout their isles good lumber dwell
ings, with suitable lighting, roofing and flooring,
although the material costs three and four times
as much as in many other parts of tbe world.
The thatched hut of the olden time is becoming
quite rare, and nearly all llawaiians are lodged
in well made board houses with shingle roofs.
Now the chief object of this article is t call
attention to certain additional improvements re
quired in tbe new habitations of llawaiians, so
that not only health will bo promoted ; but also
that a higher degree of civilization may be at
tained. It is not enough to have high walls, a
broad floor, and a tight roof, but you must have
a sufficiency of chambers, so that the proper re
lations and proprieties of the Bexes may be pre
served. If you do not arrange your dwelling so
that these proprieties can be maintained, there
can be no true civilization, and no sound health
for the race.
What have you now ? what is tbe arrangement
or many Hawaiian houses? Some of them have
only one largo chamber, with perhaps temporary
calico curtain partitions, and in this one cham
ber all the members of a family sleep together.
This is as it was in the old pagan times when
men and women of all ages and degrees of con
sanguinity would repose together in a rude state
in one chamber, and would have for cover only a
tappa coverlet, common to all.
This barbarous kind of life, this lodging to
gether of all sexes, this promiscuous living to
gether of Hawaiian families must cease, in order
to ensure the health of the race, and to enable it
to lay claim to a true civilization. There can be
no advance in well being, no practice of Christian
ity, and no sound health where such a state of
living exists. It is of no use, O Hawaiian fathers,
that ministers of religion, or good women in sem
inaries, teach virtue and propriety to your daugh
ters, if it shall be that when your educated girl
returns to your home she has no seperate cham
ber for her privacy ; but must 6leep in the same
chamber with you, and perhaps her brothers,
uncles, and other male relatives or friends, and
be obliged to observe certain requirements of na
ture, which all truly civilized people endeavor to
If any of you native Hawaiian people have a
maiden daughter, or any unmarried woman, a
member of your family, you 6hould endeavor to
Provide for her a separate sleeping apartment,
ou cannot hope that your women will become
virtuous like white women, and your people will
become truly civilized, if you do not so provide.
White women become degraded when they have
only one tenement in which to live in common
with men. Farthermore tbe room that is set apart
for women 6hould be provided with many conve
niences and comforts suited to the tastes of tbo
female sex. There should be a small dressing
table, and a mirror, with brush and comb, and
even articles of ointment and perfumery, so that
your daughter can take pleasure in arranging her
toilet ; because owing to the privacy, and these
tasteful appliances, she will care for and respect
her own person, and will make others reepect
her also. This personal care and self respect
among the women of a people, are indications of
the highest civilization, and also lie at the found
ation of the health, and consequent perpetuity of
It will be well, that not only single women
should be lodged apart, but it wsll be found very
conducive to health that all persons, married or
single, should sleep separate and alone, as much
as possible, in our tropical climate. This rule of
health, sleeping apart, is strongly enjoined upon
people .v!io live in tbe cold climates of Europe
and America. Then, how much more must it be
necessary in the warm air of Hawaii ?
In the pre.-cnt improved arid pro? porous state
of affairs in these Islands, even Hawaiian man
who can and will work, cun readily prceurc tic

Now this instruction will seem to apply only
to those who on build a lumber houf-c ; but it is
intended for all householders, of whatever mate
rial their habitation may be made.
Tbe Grass House has provided a givd shelter
for llawaiians in last times, and is still, if built
with some modern improvements, a very desirable
and healthy kind of dwelling. A well-maik
thatched roof, with a good steep pitch, will last
as long as a shingle roof; and the thatch affords
a wholesome ventilation and great coolness in
hot weather. But there is great danger, if the
thatch is cot made a perfect watcr-shcd, that
moisture and mold will be lodged around you, to
breed disease and death. Besides, thatch does
assuredly nourir-h cockroaches and the increaf ing
vermin of these modern times ; and. farthermore,
when matches are so plentiful, even in the l ands
of children, you may have your crass habitation
burned down at any moment. Therefore it will
be 6afest, and best for health, to discard the grass
house of the clden time forever. You llawaiians
have cast away the tappa, the bark of the wauke,
used fur clothing and cover at the time when the
pili grass fiut was yuur only shelter ; and so now.
you must discard the grass thatch and use
instevJ the more enduring material of lumber, or
coral, or bricks or stones for your domicile.
But of whatever material you build, have a
private chamber for the 6ingle women of your
family. And then will your name be honorable,
your family blessed, and your race be perpetuated.

Archaeology Proving the Bible True.
The records of the earth, and the inscriptions
of recently discovered remains of the ages long
ago, are bringing to the help of Bible interpre
ters such data as compels them to reverse much
of what has been regarded as necessarily mytho
logical and exalt it to a positive, truthful narra
tive of actual events. This is a gratifying fact to
the true student of the Word, as skeptical criti
cism is disarmed thereby, 60 that, as Canon
Tristram says, in the future criticism must be
subjective and objective. The solvent of un
belief cannot dissolved tbe sculptured stones and
burnt tablets of Chaldea. But skepticism, like
other organisms may still preserve her continuity,
while, Proteus like, she develops new forms by a
process of evolution." Before the recent church
congress in England two remarkable papers were
read, one by I'rofespor Rawlinson, and one by
Canon Tristram, the former explaining how the
recent discoveries in Babylon and Assyria must
compel a revision of scriptural interpretation,
the latter, indicating how perfectly heathen
records confirm the Mosaic account of creation
and the wanderings of the children of Israel,
both showing that the Bible, in its historical
parte, must be subjected to literal interpretation,
and that whatever results of such interpretation
are secured, they will be confirmed even in tbe
minutest details, by the collateral evidence of
the archaeological records. Professor Rawlinson,
among many other excellent things, speaking of
the former modes of interpretation, said :
The historical books of the Old Testament
were regarded as a bundle of myths. It was
held and taught that they contained not narra
tives of facts, but romantic tales, the invention
of their several authors. The tales were divided
into 44 myths " and 44 legends," and it was
sought to point out which were most properly to
be regarded as colored and poeticised representa
tions of eome actual occurrence, and which were
to be referred to the single source of imagination
or invention. The theory was supported mainly
by two assertions: First, that the scriptural
narrative was in many important points absolute
ly at variance with profane history, and was con
sequently false- and second, that the manners and
customs of the foreign nations brought into con
tact with the Jews were greatly misrepresented.
It has, however, recently been discovered that
profane history, the records of the rocks, and
caves, and archaeological remains perlcctly con- ;
firm the ' myths " of the Bible as historical i
facts, and the 44 misrepresented manners and ;
custom of the foreign rations," are just as stated 1
in the Holy Writ. We need not give detailed I
proof. The fact remains and can be proved to ,
the satisfaction of the intelligent skeptic. The
literal historical interpretation reasserts itself,
and will remain in possession of the field it has j
won after 60 many years of strife. '
Canon Tristram's paper was very long and we j
can only briefly summarize his pioints. lie said : i
Our topic is 44 What definite result as to the j
interpretation of scripture has been produced by j
recent discoveries? The discoveries of arch- i
seologyi whether monumental or historical, have I
affected the interpretation of scripture in four j
aspects : First, ethnographical; second, histori- j
cal: third, chronological; fourth, geographical I
He treated of the second, third and fourth and j
showed that 44 whether we turn to the so-called
legendary epoch before tbe call of Abraham, or j
to tbe annalistic period following it, we now j
find ourselves confronted with a contemporary i
and sometimes a more ancient literature, ampli-
lying, exaggerating, interpolating, but never
absolutely contradicting tbe terse narrative of i
Genesis " He synopsised the version of the crea- i
tion, the fall and tbe flood, as discovered by
George Smith, in Assyria and Nineveh, vhich ;
strangely, to us, confirms the Biblical narrative. ;
He also showed that the Sabbath was not a j
Mosaic invention, not exclusively a Semitic ob- j
servance, not ever, an ordinance delivered to i
Abraham to separate his family from surround
ing idolatry, but a primeval tradition, recog
nized, be it noted, by the Haniite contemporaries
nf Nimrod, as instituted from the creation. The
Sabbath whs recognized as a divine institution
before the separation of the Haraite and Semitic
families of men, and the obligation of observance
was acknowledged by both families. The Mosaic
account of prc-Abrahamic history he holds was
a legendary story of the earth and of man's
origin, and he thinks God did not dictate each
word to Moses, but that the writer was super
naturally guided ti iadite that alone which was
historic truth. He recognizes considerable d. fa
culty in considering chronological results of recent
archaeological developments, but insist? that even
here, it is her.eath the starJp-ir;t of our faith to
measure inspirati ,n by apjlyintl.e cold, baM

The Afghan War.
The intelligence conveying the news of the
outbreak of hostilities with Afghanistan cannot
but be viewed as most important, not merely
from the fact that our fellow-countrymen
(amongst wh 'iu we may have relative and con
nections) may sixn be engaged in actual war
fare, but as it is the first war in which our In
dian Empire has lecn concerned since Her
Majesty assumed the title of Emprese of India.
In all jrevious wars the old Eat India Comtany
was the .arauiouat power. The native of Hin
doftao, indeed, knew that behind it ttood the
(uccn of England and tbe Britioh nation to take
up the f jht should the Cvinj ny lie worMcd,
but now that the soldier ot England in India
are leading their Empress's arnuen to battle, any
untoward cheek or disaster at the commence
ment of the war would seriously afleet our pres
tige in India under Its new uuspicr s. It will,
therefore, not he out of place if we briefly take
into c.uiM.leratim the means wo have at our di
posal to inflict a severe chastireinent on Sherc
Ali, the ruler of Cabul, for the unwonted innult
offered to our embasfy, beaded l y one of India'
greatest generals, esju-cially after tiio cordial
reception given to one from Russia, together
with the rcti.rtaiieo our armies may cxj-ecl to
meet in the invasion of that country.
Afghanistan i separated from British India
by the Sulieman range of mountains. This
range is piercid by two well-known passes tfic
Khyber in the north and Bolan in the south.
There arc several other passes nnd tracks which
cross the ranges, the trincipal of which is from
Kohat, south of the Khyber, and from two largo
towns on the river Indus, namely, Dcra Ismml
Khan and Deta Gazee Khan. lately several
other passes have been discovered by ofbecrs em
ployed in the topographical survey in the Bun
noon, Mewut, and Sungurli districts, all of which
could most unquestionably ho made ue of lor
military purposes, at little cost, in case of neces
sity, but it is by the two principal passes already
named that the armies will advance.
In the war of 1839 the British army, under
Sir John Keane, encountered its greatest lows
whilst crossing the Desert of Sonde in its ad
vance to tho Bolan. Men, horses, and cattle
died in numbers, from heat and want of water.
The distress occasioned was .heart-rending.
Water had to bo carried from Shikajioor to
Dadur, a distance of over HO miles, for that at
Bagh was so brackish tl.pt camels refused to
drink it, and three miles an hour was the ut
most that could he marched, through the shift
ing sand ; but n w, through tho foresight of the
late General John Jacob, a military road from
Sukkur, on the Indus, to Dadur, at tho mouth
of the Bolan, has been formed; tho important
town of Jacobbad has sprung into existence,
with its bazaar capable of provisioning an army
corps of 20,000 at a moment's notice, and water,
which formerly was only found at a depth of 120
feet, is now within 12 feet of tho surface, by the
opening of the Scindo hollow, thus admitting tho
waters of the Indus into a desert district, aud
causing it to become a perfect oasis. Recently
the town of Qucttab, at the head of tho Bolan,
has been occupied and garrisoned by the British,
so that all previous causes of delay and dauger
preparatory to actual conflict with the Afghans
no longer exist, for tho Bolan and Quettah are
in tbe territory of the Khan of Khelat, a tribu
tory of tho British.
The position of the British at the Khyber Pass
has also changed since the war in 183'J, when we
first entered that Pass in the advance to Cabul.
Tbe Sikhs were then masters of their own
country, and the Lion of Lahore ruled the land.
Now the l'unjaub is annexed, and Peshawur is a
strong cantonment, well supplied with munitions
of war for an immcdiato nsei'mption of hostili
ties. It is from this cantonment that wo havo
advanced, and, as is reported, havo taken posses
sion of the Fort of Ali-Musjid, which is about
eight miles, within tho Pass. The Fort itself is
built of stone, and has been tho scene of many a
bloody encounter ; but like most mountain
strongholds it has no water within its walls, al
though a stream runs at its foot. From Ali
Musjid to Sal Ghunec, a distance of twelve miles,
is the most difficult portion of the Pass, with,
picrhajis, the exception of Sundi Khanah, where
the heights are terrific. When once these diffi
culties arc overcome, the Pass may bo said to bo
in our possession, lor the Chota Khyber, be
tween Laljio- ra and Jellalabad, tho eccno of
Sale's heroic defence, is but of little account.
It is state! that the tribes of Afghanistan
number between four and five million souls, but
so great is tho jealousy between tho different
tribes, that the Amir who rules at Cabul has tbe
greatest difficulty in maintaining pieaco between
them. However, the present ruler, Shcre Ali, is
computed to have at least 140,000 men under
arms or in his pay. Of late year tho Afghans
have received very valuable presents of arms and
guns from the llritish, in the hope, no doubt,
that these weapons would be used against the
Russians should they advance on Merve, a dis
puted town on the frontiers; but now, as the
'-ir has commenced, and the tribes are summon
ed to light, the very Enfield lately given to
them will bo used uga'mst our soldiers. There
is no more warlike nation iu Asii than these
wild Afghans. Their hatred to tho English is
in -nse. The disasters they suffered at our
hands in 1839, 1H40, and 1841 have never been
forgotten or forgiven, and should, as is likely to
be the case, Russian volunteer officers direct their
i operations, we shall have a most serious war on
j our bands, and nothing hut their want of unity
j and military discipline can prevent a long and
! sanguinary Conflict.
At no former period of our military history
j does cir army seem to bo better prepared for
actual war. It is true that tho old British eol
' dier has passed away, nnd the men enlisted for

He was a Nice Old Man.
Nice old gentleman be was; big white waist

sjxtaclcs. IK id in tbe singing on Sunday
evening in the hotel parlor, nnd sung that old
lashioiied bn in l..ronati in ' und China "
in that sonorous up und down stylo which coun
try chorister uwd to J ritctioe in (X'ouiny ing
the big fiddle, nnd witbul bad the bland, benev
olent look of a go,! old iipcountry deacon.
lie was lookm' round the houi " next night
aud lrp)pl in where oiue of th boy were
playing curds something where they were talk
ing of "rail" and lining" and seeing."
The boys looked a little disconcerted, but the old
man did't say anything till the band mu played
out, and one -any, under pretence or hating an
engagement, winked at tbe other and said be
must go, intending to break up till the old luao
bad gone away mid then resume the game. But
he had scarce turned hi back when the jtsi
visitor remarked :
1 wonder he didn't 'raise' ye with the Land
Do you understand the game? ' arkrd one
of tho party, taking a cigar from hi mouth.
Wall, a leetle I've seen ein playing on it,
an' sometimes thort that I'd like to take m hand
jeu' fur fun."
" Jest so," fa id another ; uppe you try a
game or two with n."
Wall, I don't mind, jest fur the fun of tbe
thing." S the old man sat down, and with a
good deal of instruction, managed to get through
the game, und won on tho penny ante. Thar,"
said be, if that feller that' gone had been
spunky and put in $5, he'd get it instead of
these eight cents, wouldn't he?"
Why, certainly," raid ono of th young
men ; " certainly. It your deal, uncle. Now,
why don't you go in lor a 5 ante?"
Wall, said tbe old fclfjw, throwing round
tho cards. ' I dono hut 1 will, but 1 han't got
nothin but a $1X1 bill that I drew outen tho
bank to come herewith."
Well uncle," said the other, gathering up
and looking at his cards, " I'll go you for 20,
and you can put it in tbo missionary box when
you win it, il you like,"
"Sho! so 1 ken," said the olJ man. "I
don't think 'twud bo gauibolin' of tint' tho
Not at all." said tbe other, winking to LI
Wall, then, I don't care cf I go ycr thi ere
other o0 but 1 a'poso you think I'm doin' on it
to skcar ye but our denomination's tarnal poor,
ar.d a big contribution i jest what they're lian
Oh, no, I'll cover your fifty, uncle; wo ought
to bo liberal, you know," and so the game went
on till finally the old man remarked, Wall, I'd
no idee I had thin cro roll of bill in my pocket
so you call, do ye? fivo hundred dollar!
yes, you havo got three pucter thrco queen
and a jack ! A Veil, 'ti kinder queer I got tothcr
queen haw ! haw ! haw !"
' Yes, I'm sorry for you, but what are your
otticr cardf. asked the young man, tri
umphantly. Well, three on Yiu -z king why, darn it
all, that 'ere pot o money' mine, young IcI,"
said he, stretching out a powerful raw atxl
squeezing tho bill out of tho band of tbo young
man, who had already began to roll them up.
"Praps, mister, you'd liko to take your Laud
agin," said he to tho other, who had returned
meantime. They are goin' to sing come "am
tunes up stair beloro going to bed, and I prom
ised I'd jino Vm."
There was a black look of amazement in that
circle as ho left, and tbo thought forced itself into
more than one mind of tho danger of trusting to
appearance. lioston Commercial.
A Cat Slide.
A fete rliampftre i what Mr. (Juffcy gave out
in tho Western Addition thr other day. To
those who object to the reckless use of thi
sjiccially imported word tbeso hard time, wo
would eay that a fete champctre in tho W on tern
Addition consist in inviting your friend to take
euppcr on the wet grass in tho back yard, by tho
light of the moon and tv o dozen Chinese lan
terns stuck in shrubbery and along the fence.
Mr. MahaC'ey, who live next door to Cuffcy
and in the same block, wa not invited to thi
dazzling nceno of joy, aDd wa accordingly
disgusted. From hi third story back window
ho gazed upon the gidJy throng getting their
feet wet and shivering with delight in (iuflcy'
garden, until ho could bear, tbo maddening iop
of cbampiagnccork no longer. He determined
to weak a terrible revenge. But how? Hark!
wa not ii.nt distant wail tho signal thnt tho
regular evening Western Additiou cat trado
was about to begin ? Aa ho 1 intoned, a Alrphi
topbilean a demoniacal smilo stole over Mr.
Mahaffey' face. Descending grimly into tbo
pjnntry, be secured a can of laid, and then pro
ceeded to climb out on the roof of the block,
which, it bnpjened, wa a sloping on covered
with shingles. Crawling over upon tho (luffey
residenc, Mr. Mahaffey c ';fully greased tho
rear inch; of the roof to tbo depth of balf-an-inch;
then be crawled back an J awnittd rcult.
