Whenever one of the three dies the remaining ones select another whom they think worthy and take him into their confidence and in this way the knowledge of the cave and its hidden mysteries are perpe tuated. Many vague rumors are heard of it though none hut the three Hawaiians and myself know of its real cxistance. Before I was permitted to view its wondrous inside I was bound to secrecy and had consented to be blindfolded and taken to it ou a datk and inclement night und brought away as I had gone. I was ready when the night came, and a dark and dreary night it was. Unobserved, the four of us left our homes and friends, and met at a secluded spot some distance away, along a hillside, between two large fields of growing cane whose tas sels nodded like so many spooks acknowledging our presence and bowing ascent to our wierd under taking. Mounted upon four black Ka naka ponies weighing about six hundred pounds each we started out on our dismal journey. As pre viously agreed I was securely blindfolded and after about two hours of travel over lava beds, fern-tree forests and long Hilo grass, we came to a halt. It was nowthebewitching hourof midnight and was very dark. The air seemed filled with the spirits of long lost Kanakas and in the death-like still ness I imagined I could hear them whispering to each other in low uncertain tones. I was now told to dismount, that we had reached the cave and must prepare to enter. Immediately I felt a cold chilliness stealing over me, aim my nat seemeu to im away from my head as my hair assumed the stiffness of bristle and each strain tried to push itself as far away from the others as it could. I got down from my horse with that reluctance which usually at tends grave uncertainty, though I was not only willing but anxious to undergo the ordeal.

KEYSTONE kept watch over the decaying re mains of the long since departed braves. In addition to the gleam of1 whitening bones, there was a sheen j from a thousand different points of highly polished lava about the shelves which rendered the place a mystic labyrinth that dazzled every eye. Many warlike implements of stone were strewn among the bones and piled upon the shelves and were mute but expressive reminders of the suffering and death of the poor untutored savages who fought and bled and died, oftener than otherwise, for very trivial things. The sudden opening of my eyes upon such a ghastly scene in the depths of the earth at midnight, and that to, while fully at the mercy of my guides who did not speak my language and were none too friendly to the white man, I confess, was a little trying to my nerves; however I felt that I could not die until my time came and I took great comfort in that feeling. Notwithstanding I was forbidden to touch anything, I brought away two relics, and I do not believes I committed a sin in doing so. I had noticed a difference in the sheen which emanated' from several points in a particular pile of bones which lay upon one of the shelves, and when I approached it for investiga tion was told that those bones were of the last Chief who had won the coat in which Captain Cook had been killed. The fact that it was owned by Captain Cook, and also that it was an elegant cloth coat with gold buttons made it for many years a bone of contention among the Tribes. It was a great mark of honor to possess it and each tribe desiring such distinction sought its possession at the cost of limbs and lives. Finally, to put a stop to the carnage which seemed never end ing, one 01 ttic cnieis ciotncu wiui authority to wear it, sacrificed his life to that end by wearing it into the cave and starving himself to death in the position where his bleached bones now lie. It was the bottons of the coat, the only vistage oi it left, which gave forth the peculiar sheen and two of them now ornament my wrist as sleeve Manufacturers of Pure Bone Fertilizers and Pure Bone Meal. dhau:rs in of Every Description.
