There is some talk about organizing a young peo

standard requirements of membership will be so
briety, decency and gentility the last word is used
in a broad and liberal sense. This proposed club
is to organize and devote itself to scheaies of social
recreation such as dances, masquerades, picnics
and the like. Such a friendly social organization
is much needed here and it is earnestly hoped our
young people will take the plan in hand iu earnest
and carry it out at once. In foreign cities no larg
er than this there are any numbar of these pleas
ant fraternal societies and that they are a source
of much refined pleasure and tend to train young
men and women for the great drama of life there
can be no doubt.

An agitation, says an exchange, prevails among
the French at Noumea, New Caledonia, against the
proposed annexation by England of the New Heb
rides. Franco is to be moved to annex the islands
herself, and the Governor of Now Caledonia has
been urged by a formal deputation to declare the
annexation because the islands are in fact a de
pendency of the colony. The Australians propose
however, to have the New Hebrides, alleging that
if the group are annexed to France, they will bo
used solely as a penal colony, to the injury of Aus
tralia. However, as France and England entered
into a compact some years ago, that neither gov
ernment should annex the Hebrides, it is probable
that they will hold each other to the engagement
referred to, so long as it may remain in force.
At Waialua, on the island of Kauai, there has
long been a bad "one-herse," old ferry to accom
modate all who passed that place on the public road.
The stream at the point was not to be forded with
out the utmost peril on account of a quicksand
bottom and hence tho old ferry had to be patron
ized by the traveling public. The stream over
which it ran was not so exceedingly wide but yet it
took considerable time to pass to and fro across
the W'lter and there was some complaint among res
idents because of the short delay often occasioned
by the temporary absence of the ferrymau, or rath
er ferry woman iu charge of the place. Appre
ciating the demand of the public for a good, aub
stanial bridge at this point the Government has
entered into a contract with a well-known bridge
builder of San Francisco, to erect a suitable sub
stantial iron structure across tho stream a Waia
lua. Already over half of the material .has gone
forward per steamer Ja-ii'i Makee to Kauai, and
this week the balance will follow. The roads on
Kauai are generally in fine condition although in a
few places the recent rains have washed some gul
lies. The new bridge will be a great improvement
and meet a long-felt want.
Tho members of the legal fraternity aud others
of our community, will remember Mr. F. P. Ston
ey, a lawyer of San Freueisco, who, accompanied
by his wife, visited this city in July last for his
health, stopping at th Hawaiian Hotel. While
here he was a frequent visitor at the July session
of our Supreme Court during tha progress of some
noted trials which were held at that term, and ex
pressed himself as very much surprised and grati
fied to find such an able judiciary and bar as he
found here. He returned to California satisfied
that the Supreme Court of thi Kingdom was as
well administered as any similar Court in Califor
nia. The day before he left for his home, by invi
tation of His Majesty, he aud his wife visited the
Palace and were shown through that fine building
and the spacious grounds. His friends residing
here will be glad to read the following notice of his
promotion to be one of the Judges of the Superior
Court of California. "Governor Stoneman ha an
nounced that F. P. Stoney, of Stanley. Stoney A
Hayes, will be appointed to fill the vacancy
in the San Fran.-isco Superior Court, caus

If Honolnlu by day has much of the norso, busi
ness bustle and general stir which characterize
most energetic foreign cities, itJias comparatively
little of the glamor, livline and activity by night
which may be found i i large towns abroal. Soon
after 5 o'clock the great hnm of labor caaes along
the wharves, the streets in the basin1;. portion of
the city become almost deserted, and many of the
shops are closed. Serene quiet and restful tran
quility supervene. between the closing day and the
approaching night. Some who have eagerly en
gaged in the busy toils of the day repair to their
homes, and there is nothing to interrupt or de
stroy their rest. Yes, it is pleasant for those who
have homes; those who are siirroun del by friend
and fond acquaintances; bat how is it with those
who are comparative strangers or who have only a
single dreary apartment to retire to and spaud the
whole long evening in ? Does not even tranquility
and ease become monotonous to them, aud what
might be attractive and enjoyable rest, degenerate
into dreary listlessness? Men are sociable beings;
they are ever drawn together by every attribute of
human nature, and friendly intercourse has an in
vigorating tendency, which conduced to happiness
by gratifying in leffinate but inato desires. And
therefore a certain class in this community would
seem to plead for more opportunities of obtaining
easy social recraations. Evening and night in Ho
nolnlu are not as delightful to all residents as they
ought to be, but we may hope that in the near fu
ture more places of public amusement will be
opened aud this want supplied. In contrast with
all other quarters of the city how striking a differ
ence does that occupied by the Chinese present at
night. These people keep mast of their stores op
en until 8 or 3 o'clock in the evening. They have
their theater, whicli is open every week-day night,
and often appear in the streets in large numbers
engaged in sprightly conversation long after the
street lamps have been lit. They have many places
of amusement adapted to their peculiar tastes and
seem to have established themselves with the ut
most regard to all social comforts. Other foreign
ers ought to be as well supplied with public places
of resort of the sort which Europeans and Ameri
cans are fond of, and there should ba no disagree
ment about the matter.

Sir. Crazan's Lretare-Koom Talk, Wrdufsday Ere
Srpt. li. IS83.
Mr. Crazan read from tho 40th chapter of Isaiah,
in whicli occurs the promise, "They that wait on
the Lord shall renew their strength," etc., and
then spAe substantially as follows :
St. John writing unto "the well-beloved saints,"
says, "I wish above all tilings that thou mayest
prosper and ba in health, even as thy soul pros
pereth." A strange standard by which to meas
ure temporal prosperity! If soin s -c ille I Chris- j
tians only prospered and were iu health a thuir
souls prospered our streets would ba full of bank
rupts, and our physicians would have all they
could do. It is well to caro for tha body to give
it a chance to step off the tread mill and slip off
the harness. He is wise who turns his back on
care and business, that hn miy. in changa of scene,
aud air, and by rest aud recreation restore his bod
ily strength. If this is wise for the body, it is
doubly wise for the soul. Wo lecome exhausted,
spiritually as well as physically. Gd tolls us in
this passage from Isaiah that it is pusible to re
new our soul's strength. How can this be done? We
are told that those "who wait on the Lord shall
renew their strength." "Waiting" hen; certainly
does not mean inaction. It means, on tho other
hand the most strenuous endaavors. Just a the
planter "waits" on God to give him a six-ton crop
of cane, by thorough preparation of the ground,
planting, irrigation, and cultivation. So must we
"wait" on Ood if we would ba strengthened anew
we must ba never bafora so earnat in obeying
God's commands, aud seeking not ouly to bu but
to do good.
And this suggests that iu order to re;eal of
strength there should bo a renewal of consecration.
Paul, writing to the Church in Roma, ;.ay.. " I be
seech you, therefore, brethren, by tho mercies of
God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice,
wholly, acceptable unto God, which is your reason
able service." The cares and troubles of this world
tend to draw us away from God. We need, often,
to make this re-consecration for there is "tho hill
ing of power." Here was the "open secret" of
Paul's strength, "the love of Christ coustraineth
me." The effective, strong Christian unites all
his talents in one bundle and then binds round
them this strong cord, ' The love of Christ." Such
a man, though he have only the most moderate
talents, will ba a man of power.
If you would reua.v your spiritual strength, you
must let the life of Christ have five course iu your
soul. Christ says that a Christian must be joined
to Him, and receive all hi life from Him, as the
branch does from the vins. Cat off or girdle a
branch, it dies. Bind a ligature about the arm, so
that the blood cannot circulate, and the arm er
ishes. We bind our souls with the ligatures of
self-indulgence; we girdle them by unbelief; we
cut them off by sin. Is it any wonder that th'-y
become lifeless, strengthless V
Soul strength comes only through trust. When
Christ entered the home of Jairus, and was about
to bring life to tha dead child. He said to tha
weeping parents, "Fear not, only trust." So He
says to every one, "only trust." Trust gives the
soul "eagle wings" and tireles strength.
Should WomrD Ride oa Horseback Like Mm.
Some of the papers of the United States have
been discussing the question whether or not it
would be best for women to ride astrido on horse
back as men do. Among the ladies of most foreign
countries it is very rarely that we find any who do
not use a side saddle when they ride on hoiscback,
but an eminent writer has been considering the re
sults of t'ae usa of both' kinds of saddles. He says
"riding with a short stirrup produces bowed-legs.
The long-stirrup rider grips his horse with the knee
while the short-stirrup rider grips him the inner
side of tho leg below the knee. The differeuco of
action explains tlie difference of result. No de
formity necessarily follows the use of the side-saddle
if the precatioii bs taken with growing girls to
change sides on altarnata days, riding on the left
side one day and the right on the next. The pur
pose of this change is to counteract the tendency
to lean over to the si. la oppnit; tint on which the
log is swang." The writer also examines the re
sults that often show themselves in men who are
perpetually in the saddle and remarks that " as a
matter of fact, although it may not appear to be
the case, the seat whioh a woman enjoys on a side
saddle is fully as secare an l not nearly as irksome
as that which a man has to maintain, unless he
simply balances himself and docs not grip the side
of his horse either with the knee or the side of the
leg. It is curious to note the different ways in
which the legs of men who pas. much time in the
saddle are effected. Hiding with a straight leg and
a loag stirrup almost invariably produces what are
popularly called knocked-kuoes. Nearly all the
mounted soldiers of the British army suffer from
this deformity, as any one who takes the trouble to
notice the men of the Life Guards and Blues walk
ing may satisfy himself." With these facts in view
t would seem that the custom of riding astride
which so largely prevails in Hawaii among native
women and to sorie extent among foreign women
too, is not the most desirable. Although tho use
of side-saddles may prove injurious to the rider,
the greater danger is, it appears from the authori
ty we quote, in using the ordinary saddle which

Home of tha novelist of America and England

stories lady students aud lady graduates in nii'ili

'scene'' where the tender pussioii is developed some
very interesting complications are made. As a
sample of theso stories we quote the following
brief talc by Max Adler:
Miss Mary Flynn was studying mediciim and
courted at the same time. William Bu.ld was at
tending to tho latter part of tho business. One
evening Jwhile they wero sitting together iu the
parlor, Mr. Budd was thinking how he should
manage to propose. Miss Flynn wa explaining
certain physiological fact to him.
"Do you know," said she, "that thousand of
people are actually ignorant that they smell with
the olfactory peduncle ?"
"Millions of 'em," replied Mr. Budd.
"Aud Aunt Mary wouldn't believe me when 1
told her she could not wink without a sphincter
"How unreasonable '."
"Why a person canuot eveu kis without a
"I know it is so."
"May I try if I can '"
"Oh, Mr. Budd, it is really too L.id of you to
make light of such a subject."
Mr. Budd seized her hand and kissed it. She per
mitted it to remain iu his grasp.
"I did not notice," he said, "whothor a a what
do you call it V A sphincter helped me then or not.
Let me try it again."
Then he triod again, and while he held her she
exclaimed to him about the muscle of that portion
of tho human body.
"It is remarkable how much you know about
such things," said Mr. Budd. "really, wonderful.
Now, for example what is tho bono at the back of

"Why, the occipital bone, of course."
"And what are the names of tho muscle of tho
"The apiralis and infra-spiralis, among wthers."
"Well, now, let me show what I mean. When I
put my infra-spiralis around your waist, mo, it is
your occipital bone that rests upon my shoulder
blad iu this way."
"My back hair primitively, but the occipital
bono, of course, afterward. But, Mr. Budd, sup
pose pa should come in aud site us ?"
"Him come! Who cares?" said Mr. Budd. boldly.
"I think I'd exercise a sphincter again and take n

he had performed the feat.
"Don't call mo Mr. Budd; call mo Willie," he
said, drawing her closer. "You accept me, don't
yea? I know you do, darling."
"Willie," whispered Miss l lynii faintly.
"I can hear your heart beat."
"It beats only for you, my angel."
"And it sounds to mo out of order. Tho ventric

I will give you some medicine."
"It's your own property, darling; d what you

But why proceed? Tho old, old story was told
again, and tho old, old pnrforance of tho muscles
of Mr. Budd's mouth was enacted again. But
about eight years later Mr. Budd was wishing that
Mary would catch sonic disease among her pa

Willie could bo puf to would be a subject for thu
Thf Iut ore ef Pearl Cher.
We have often read of scenes of natural oriental
tropical beauty, but novcr been' or peniseij a de
scription which would rival what might bu truth
fully written of Pearl River, if its banks were
adorned by the art aud wealth of man and is islet
cultivatod'aud out iu parterres and made thu
dwelling places of tho tasteful and opulent. In
the near future, wo predict that Pearl Itiv.-r and
its bordering shore will became the chief place of
residence for merchants mid other wealthy busi
ness men of Honolulu. All that is needed now to
induce those who aro about to build homes to lo
cato in the vicinity of the beautiful lako-like stream
is a railroad to connect tho place with the city. At
present there may be no certain prospect that a
railwav will soon be built, but we believe that if
any man with sufficient capital would can-fully
calculate tho expense and be content with a small
profit, on the investment for thn first few years ho
would find sufficient pecuniary inducement in thu
enterprise of building a narrow gauge railroad
from Hondlulu around the Island to Waianae and
Waialua. From the plantations at the latter places
considerable freight could Is) obtained. Not only
would sugar bo shipped to this city by rail but ulso
fruit and especially bananas, which are largely
raised in those parts for export, and which aro
often lost because a coasting schooner is delayed
for a few days in a calm. In tho future when tho
present thrift and developing prosperity of tho
country adiall have filled the purses of our lilci al
and careful rulers of c-ornmcrco and trade this rail
way project will certainly bo carried out. Then
those who arc engaged in business in the capital
city will seek a retired and lovely place of rei
dence as the merchant princes of th greut tmle
emporiums of all other countries do. Pearl River
will xt just tho proper distance from town to tak
the morning and evening trains in passing to and
from home, and not feel the loss of tho trifling few
moments which would be required to mal.o tha
Lightning; from a Clear Sky.
Mr. Robert Claiborne was a Lrothor to Mrs,
T. 1'. Leathers, wife of the Captain of the
Natchez, says the Vick&burg (Miss.) Herald.
He is Postmaster at Point Cotipoe, betide hav
ing the agency of the Pool line and other bouts
at that port. Last Tuesday evening, while tho
steamboat Blanks was lying at the lauding, Mr,
Claiborne started down the leveo toward where
she was tied, followed by two negro men,
mounted ou mules, carrying the nail bags.
When nearly to the boat he was seen to full to
the ground suddenly beneath a white bluzo of
light that hovered around hint for an instant.
and the two negro men at the same time were
hurled off the mules to the ground. Those on
he boat who witnessed tho phenomenon rushed
ashore, aud almost at the same moment the two
negroes recovered their feet and cume up to
where Mr. Cluiboruo had fallcu. They found
him a corpse, black ns ink all over. An exami
nation of the body disclosed tho fact that tho
electric fluid hud penetrated the body iu two
currents, penetrating his right and left breasts
respectively, and making two apertures whero
they entered, as bullets would have rurido. Tho
lightning traversed his body, passing down his
legs and tearing off his bhoes, hurling them to a
considerable distance from the body. A lot of
silver coins in ouo of tho pockets of his panta
loons were melted and fused together iu au in-
' ' -ijuishablo mass. The two negroes felt tho
toi if tho shock sufficiently to be thrown from
th4 f were riding, without being seri
ously injured thereby. The sun was shininz in
an unclouded sky at tho time the thunderbolt
came down. A phenomenon Bimilar iu its fatal.
ity and strangeness occurred some weeks nco.
by which two men wero killed under a trco near
Bay .St. Louis, being struck dead by lightning
wmio tno sun was shining. Silver and gold
coins in their pockets were melted and black
ened, as in tho case of Mr. Claiborne.
