ROMANCE OFT V i JN faraway Hawaii, the II wave-kissed islands of I the South Pacific, there I is a folk song which tells how a young prince wooed and won IfggiaJAN I a princess Dy placing li"r f ?f.i i J psiT-laKdH of wild blooms at her window and sing ing to her in the lan guage of flowers. When the prince finally brought a wreath of her favorite flowers and their perfume was waft ed to her she appeared at the casement and kissed her hand. "The rest was easy. Of course. Jay Gould didn't know at first that the pretty maid in the flower booth at the Actors' Fund Fair was a little princess. He wasn't bothering his head about that, but he did know right away that her black eyes snapped roguishly, that she smiled sweetly and that her voice was like music in his ears when she asked: "Who'll buy my roses?" He very promptly assured her that he'd buy 'em. Thereupon he became a regular, almost persistent cash customer. He purchased bouton nieres, bouquets and baskets, singly and In bunches, sent them to the hos pitals and returned for more for an entire week he lived in the perfume of that one booth. That wasn't all he fell head over heels in love. So the third romance among George Gould's children began among flowers, like the Kanaka romance which the old-time Hawaiians croon in song. The pretty maid of the flower booth was Annie Douglas Graham, a princess according to the royal who's who of Hawaii of the last reigning family. Llliuokalani, the last queen of Hawaii, Is her remote cousin. She Is the daughter of Princess Kaikilani. Her father was Douglas Graham. The mar riage of Graham and the princess was something of a college romance. Young Graham was a student at Princeton, and among his classmates was a Hawaiian prince who was mov ing toward the theological field. The elder Graham, who was junior partner In Hartley & Graham, the famous firm of gunsmiths, took an interest in the young Hawaiian and arranged with him to become a companion of bis classmate in a tour of the world. Nat urally the tourists visited Honolulu, where the youth was received by the royal family. He was presented to his classmate's sister, the young and beau tiful Princess Kaikilani, and they fell la love with each other. Before k-n-other year had passed the Princeton youth had proposed to the Hawaiian maiden and she accepted him. "How are you going to arrange it?" asked one of Graham's college chums. "She is a princess, and you" "And I am a Princetonian," he" inter rupted. "That makes It all right. Any Princetonian ought to be able to mar ry a princess." Following the marriage, which was attended by representatives of - the royal family of Hawaii. Graham and his Island princess came to New York to live. Their home for some years was in the fashionable old part of .West Twelfth street. Whenever Hawaiian dignitaries came to New York they were hospitably entertained there, and on several occasions Mrs. Graham gave little parties . modeled after native celebrations, to which many polite New Yorkers were bidden. In the early nineties a domestic shadow fell athwart the Graham home. Mrs. Graham found it necessary to ask the courts ' intervene In her behalf. OUN G AY GOULD When she had obtained a divorce she lived for several years In comparative retirement, devoting herself to the education of her children. About ten years ago Mrs. Graham married Hu bert Vos, the Dutch portrait painter. Mrs. Vos's portrait in her Hawaiian costume Is familiar in exhibitions of the painter's canvasses. Miss Graham, who, on April 27, In St- Thomas's church, will become the wife of Jay Gould, Is, like her mother, of the exotic type of beauty. She is finely educated and possesses a mod est fortune. The language of Hawaii is not unfamiliar to her. She knows the story of the islands like a book. She knows the Hawaiian traditions and its quaint jnythology. Princesses have always been credit ed with possessing mysterious Influ ence with the gods who, according to the simple natives, rule over the isl ands of the sea. When Capt. Cook, the British globe-girdler, discovered the Hawaiian Islands In the closing days of the eighteenth century nearly every island in the group had its own breech-clouted potentate. They were as fine a lot of South Sea knights as could be found anywhere. They wor shipped idols that were as ugly as those of China. If the wind didn't blow from the right direction or a king was annoyed with an ingrowing toe nail or other ailment the attaches of the king's household, supplemented by a lot of copper-colored priests, would say things to the idols, and if the Idols didn't appear surprised they would know that the gods must be appeased. There were various methods of do ing this. Sometimes thrusting a blade through the throat of a squealing fat pig would bring a result. At other times a dog would be sacrificed. In really serious cases, as for instance. when one king wanted the support of the war god In knocking off the head of the neighboring king, a venerable human being would be led trembling to the hillside altar and there punc tured by the priests until he ceased to gasp. As inter-island warfare was conducted on a schedule such as Is arranged for baseball clubs, there was seldom a time when a dead civilian did not lie at the foot of the royal Idol. The skulls of those who died as a sac rifice were, after a time, fastened to pole tops and set up on the highway along which the gods were supposed to travel to show that everything had been done to propitiate them. Ex- Queen Lilluokalani, who was the last of the crown-wearing class In Hawaii, on one of her visits to this country said: "From barbarism to civilization was Just a step for the Hawaiians. They turned from the one and accepted the other without any long Intervening period of gradual preparation." This Is indeed a fact. The Hawai ians saw the light; one by one the Idols disappeared, and in a compara tively short time a chief arose whose power and influence put an end to the semi-barbaric warfare which had been quite the common thing. Queen Llliuokalani, or "Lily of the Sea," occupied the Island throne when it was toppled over and monarchy got its final setback there. She was a woman of characteristic Hawaiian features, copper-colored, educated and graceful after the style of Maggie Cline. For a number of years Queen Lil lived In the hope that she would be restored to her .royal palace, but even the Hawaiian gods couldn't bring it about. siueen lmuosaiani s nusband was John Owen Dominls, son of a Boston shipmaster. He "was a man of affairs. Ha died Borne time ago. The -widow was reported to be engaged to fat Prince Arl Pal of Tahiti a few years ago. Prince Arl weighs 300 pounds. It hrs been ofttlmes predicted in Hawaii that some day a princess would be born who would restore the glory of royalty to the islands. They didn't mention names. When that day comes, so the story runs, the great volcano Kilauea will rumble and send forth a fire which will be the signal for a day of rejoicing. The goddess Pill, who presides "over 'everything fiery, is said to understand her duties well. New York World. ORIGIN OF . CLASSIC YELL "She Burns Green" Expression of Aaron Winters Who Discovered Borax in Death Valley. Although the prospector Is generally supposed to be associated with' the search for precious metal his attention Is by no means confined to that. A writer tells of a group of valuable claims in the Silver mountain mining district, which includes the whole 1 of Black mountain. It was long considered worthless un til an up-to-date prospector recognized It as "cement rock," the principal in gredient from which Portland cement Is made. Another example is furnished by the discovery of borax in Death valley. one of the most valuable strikes ever made in California. The discoverer,, Aaron Winters, was at that time living In a lonely little shack on the Amar- gosa flats at the south end of the val ley. Thither, attracted by the light, came one night a vagrant prospector from . Nevada. He had with him a sample of borax brought from a small deposit across the border. This Winters in stantly recognized as being the same curious stun which he had Been ly ing in great beds in Death valley. but of hich he had never known the name. Adroitly questioned, the wanderer explained to Winters the simple but little known test for borax. No soon er was their visitor safely gone than Winters and his wife, carrying food and water, a pick, a saucer and a bot tle of alcohol, set out on foot north ward into the valley. At nightfall the next day they arrived at the first of the strange beds. Without even waiting to moisten his parched throat Winters fell upon it with pick and bare hands till a little of the surface crust was removed. He scraped up a handful of the loose stuff, piled it in the saucer, moistened it with al cohol and struck a match. An instant later he hurled his hat in one direc tion, his pick in another, and seizing his wife, waltzed that astonished lady round the strange, flickering flame, whooping: 'She burns green, Rosie! She burns green!" Winters realized a fortune from his discovery. Even today the man of the valley lighting upon something new heralds his find with the classic yell: She burns green!": Los Angeles Times. CORPORATIONS NO NEW THING People Have Forgotten That This Company Was Settled by Cor porate Companies. It is a fact, though people have for gotten it, that this country was colon ized by corporations, says Business. It was set going by monopolies. The colony at Jamestown was planted in j 1607 by the London company, which was a corporation. The colonists who landed at Ply mouth Kock were sent out by the Ply mouth company, which was a corpora tion. The pioneers who settled Bos ton represented the Massachusetts Bay company, which was a corporation. And so on down the list of American colonies. Even after they cut loose from Eng land the Americans created their state governments after the pattern of these British corporations. Whoever would understand fully a state and its form of organization must dig up the his tory of the Massachusetts Bay com pany, and the other corporations that flourished when George III. was king. But these corporation died out, or were bought out, as the colonies grew large and independent, and for a time there were practically no corporations at all. In 1790, for instance, there were only three banking companies of any kind In the whole United States. The first corporations were start ed in a blaze of patriotism after the war of 1812. At that time the United States was mainly a farming country. It bought its manufactured goods from England. Its clothes. Its boots. Its books, its tools. Its furniture, all came from England. This was an intolerable situation when the United States and the Eng lish were at war, and so a tremendous effort .was made to secure industrial independence. Stock companies were formed. English goods were boycot ted. Factories were built. The first wave of business enterprise swept over the young country and wherever it went up sprang corporations. . Electricity on Ocean Steamer.
