Rainfall nt Night Accounted for by im Observant Kcsldcnt. the night, because' the amount of heat stored in the rocks during the day gives nature a seeming tardi ness in her labor of radiation. We arc not subject to severe rain storms, but the most copious down pour disappears almost as rapidly as it falls. The earth is so porous and riven with fissures one never sees running water here except down a Government road. The unique and alluring scenery to be found at every point of the compass differs from that of any other section of the Islands, beg gars description and has to be seen to be appreciated; the beautiful lake of clear water, appearing deep green from reflection of surround ings, situated in an extinct cone crater has no paralel ; the warm crystal waters of the natural rock ribbed spring amply nud pleasur ably affords that which is "next to Godliness," and the wonderful "lava trees," as they are called, assuming varied shnpes and forms as vases, trees, arches and many grotesque figures arc not to be found anywhere else on earth. The country is replete with enter tainment for pleasure seekers, while the panoramic changes of scenery and climatic influences restore the flush of health to the pallid check from which it may have faded' away.

The equability of temperature is unsurpassed and without excess, as the mercury os cillates between 58 and 86 degrees the year round, the mean daily range being 21 2-15 degrees. We have unusual porosity of soil, mod erate relative humidity, prevailing winds from the ocean and a com parative absence of rainfall during the day. Kapoho, the postoffice, and name of the first section of the plantation is situated almost upon Cape Ku mukahi, far enough inland to es cape the glare of the oceaifaild hot too far away to reap the full benefit of the breezes which come to us laden with purities gathered in a passage of thousands of miles over the sea. These winds fan us with wings of life-giving ozone nnd cool us with tlicir saline properties, which being great conductors of caloric, abstract the heat from our bodies as they pass on to cheer others in their course; they sweep back into the mountains germs generated in the forests and settle ments above us; are seldom stormy enough to attract attention and arc free from discomfort and dust dust, a most successful spreader of disease, is kept in subjection by re peated showers at night. Every body knows that the moisture of clouds coming from warm sections, as prairie, desert or the sea, is con densed and precipitated in rainfall when coming in contact with a cooler atmosphere as that of higher altitudes hence the frequent rains upon the windward side of moun tains. This immediate section of the district of Puna has but little alti tude, and no extensive lorests, though quite sufficient for that happy interchange of respiration which is maintained between the two great kingdoms of animal and vegetable life, the one utilizing the gaseous debris of the other wherein man exchanges his cast off carbonic acid gas for the expired oxygen of plants. We tire bounded on three sides by the sea and have a vast j acreage of almost bare lava. These I conditions tend toward maintain I ing the warmth of the day well into the night, and the clouds drift ing over from the sea in the day 1 experience no change in tqmpera I ture, so carry on their moistening freight to the hills. 1 As the sun disappears in the levelling the terrestrial radiation, , which is seldom arrested here by the extent of cloudiness, induces the necessary lowering of tempera ture nud we have rainfall nt night not only nt night but, more fre quently, during the latter hours of Kuov Is Continued. Washington, Dec. 16. Just be fore the adjournment tonight the Senate confirmed the nomination of Philander C. Knox to be Attorney General of the United States. When the Senate had disposed of the canal treaty the Attorney General's nomination was called up. Tho discussion turned upon a motion made by Senator Jones of Arkansas to recommit the nomination to the Committee on Judiciary, in the meantime publishing the testimony bearing on the case.

Mr. Johnson reports the road in a fearful condition several culverts having been washed away. He also said that all hands were called up on Christmas Eve to save the Papaaloa mill from going in to the sea, so severe was the storm. He thinks that it will be three weeks before the road will be open for traffic. Mr. Johnson remained in Ililo but a day, starting for the country again on Wednesday. He will work out as far as Laupahoehoe during the next five weeks when he will again return to Ililo. r 1 1 AWA 1 1 VIC Engineering and Construction Co.

It saved my little boy's life and I feel that I cannot praise it enough. I bought a bottle of it from A. E. Stcere of Goodwin, S. D., U. S. A., and when I got home with it the poor baby could hardly breathe. I gave the medicine as directed every ten minutes until he "threw up" and then I thought sure he was goiug to choke to death. We had to pull the phlegm out of his mouth in great long strings. I am posi tie that if I had not got that bottle of cough medicine, my boy would not be on earth today. Join, Du mont, Inwood, Iowa.
