The llinwilliin 1,1'kimhI of Tht'll' lie Iimim' by .Maul. In tlio March number of the I'nriuIKo of llic I'ncific, Rev. W. 1). Westmelt rIvcs nn interesting account of one of Hawaii's oldest myths. Kxlracts from this splen didly written article ate ns follows: Maui the demi-god was the Her cules of Polynesia. II is exploits weie fully ns marvelous as those of the hero of classic mythology. He snared the sun. ' He pulled up Islands from the ocean depths. He lifted the sky into its present posi tion and smoothed its arched sur face w ith his stone adze. These stories belong to all Polynesia. The Maoiis of New Zealand say that Maui could at will change him self into a bird and with his feath ered friends find a home in leafy shelters. With the birds ns companions and the winds as his seivanls Maui must soon have turned his inven tive mind to kite making. Maui after repeated experiments made a large kite for himself. It was much larger than any house of his time or generation. He twisted a long line from the strong fibers of the native plant known ns the oloua. He endowed both kite and string with marvelous powers and launched the kite up toward the clouds. It rose very slowly. The winds were not lifting it into the sky. Maui remembered that an old priest lived in Waipio valley, the largest and finest valley of the large island, Hawaii, on which he made his home. This priest had a covered cala bash in which he compelled the winds to hide when he did not wish them to play on land and sea. The priest's name was known as Ka leiioku and his calabash was known as "ipu-makani-a la maumati." Maui called to the priest who had charge of the winds to open his calabash and let the winds come up to Hilo and blow along the Wailuku river on the side of which Maui stood. The natives say that the place where Maui stood was marked by the pressure of his feet in the lava rocks of the river bank as he braced himself to hold the kite against the increasing force of the winds which pushed it to wards the sky. Then the enthusi asm of kite flying filled his youth ful soul and he cried aloud scream ing his challenge along the coast of the sea towards Waipio: "O winds, winds of Waipio, In the calabash of Kaleiioku. Come lrotn the irui-uukani, O wind, the wind of Hilo, Come quickly, come with power." Then the priest lifted the cover of the calabash of the winds and let the strong winds of Hilo escape. Along the the sea coast they rushed until as they entered Hilo bay they heard the voice of Maui calling. With a tumultuous rush the strong winds turned towards the mountains. They forced their way along the gorges and palisades of the Wailuku river. They leaped into the hea ens. The kite strug gled as it was pushed upward by the hands ol the fierce winds, but Maui rejoiced. His heart was up lifted by the joy of the conflict in which his strength to hold was pit ted against the power of the winds to tear her away. The kite had been made of the strongest kapa which Maui's mo ther could prepare. It was not torn, although it was bent back ward to its utmost limit. The line was stretched and strained as the kite was pushed back. Then Maui called again and again for stronger winds to come. The cord was drawn out until the kite was far above the mountains. At last it broke and the kite was tossed over the craters of the volcanoes to the laud of the districts of Ka-u on the other .side of the island. Then Maui was angry and hastily leaped over the mountains which are nearly fourteen thousand feet in altitude. In a half dozen strides he had crossed the fifty or sixty miles from his home to the place where his kite lay. When Maui returned with his kite he was more careful in calling the wind to aid him in this sport. Maui would send his kite into the blue sky and then tie tilt: lino to tile great black stone in the bed of the Wailuku river. Maul soon learned the nower of his kite when blown upon by a fierce wind. With his nccustomed skill he planned to make use of his strong servant and therefore took the kite with him on his journeys to the other islands, using it to aid in making swift voyages. With the wind in the right direction the kite would pull his double canoe very easily and quickly to its desti nation. Time passed and even the denii god died. The fish hook with which he drew the Hawaiian Islands up from the depths of the sea was al lowed to lie on the lava by the Wailuku river until it became a part of the stone. The double canoe was carried lar inland and then permitted to petrify by the river side. The two stones which represent the double canoe now bear the name "Waa-Kauhi" and the kite has fallen from the sky far up on the mountain side, where it still rests, a flat plot of rich land between Manna Kca and Manna I.oa. l.pprollu. The organizing secretary of the mission to India and the east in forms the I,oudou Globe that treat ment with leproliu, the new scrum prepared by Capt. Rost, I. M. S., is being tried in several of the In dian nsylurus of the mission to le pers. At Purulia, in Bengal (where the society supports 600 lepers), three cases are declared by the de puty sanitary commissioner of the district to be "to all intent and pur pose completly cured." Others show less favorable results. If found to be of lasting benefit the society will adopt the treatment in others of its forty-two asylums in India and the cast. Meanwhile Dr. Wilson of Miraj, Bombay presiden cy has expressed his opinion that Capt. Rost has made a very great discovery and again opened the door of hope to the lepers. Lovo of Country. In the interior of Japan a young farmer on the outbreak of the war was suddenly called to the colors. Two days preparation was given him to settle his affairs and to statt for Tokyo. His wife had a very young infant. The young mother was so overcome with grief at this unexpected news that she fainted away and within an hour died, leaving her husband alone with the new-born babe. What could he do with it? Who would care for such a small mite? Feeling that his own life was forfeit to his country, the poor man in a frenzy of passionate grief killed his own child. Of course the law had to step in and he had to be tried for murder. A merciful jury acquitted him on the ground of emotional insanity. Onsen or VchuvIun. In his remarkable collecting ex periment at Vesuvius, Professor Janssens lowered into the crater a receptacle that could be opened and closed whenever desired, by an in genious nraugement of valves, and in this way he drew up samples of gases at different points down to a great depth. A study of these gases is expected to throw light on the emissions from the craters of the sun. .. .

The hum ming of wires running,, north and south advise a rise in temperature almost always several hours in ad vance of the thermometer. . What Uliamliorlalii'H l'alii Halm Will Do.
