The I'ostponnl Spree of Nnvnt Jack- It'R. The following interesting account appears in the Washington D. C. Star "The leccnt kicking ttpofMnunn Lon, the is.ooo-footer of n volcano down on the main island of Hawaii of the Hawaiian croup, reminds me of an expedition made about four years ago by a bunch of bluejacks from my shin to Kilauca, the burn ing lake about three-quarters of the way up to the volcano's crest," said a naval officer now on Wash ington duty. "Our ship, after a long period of cruising, during which there had been no shore liberty for the men forward, pulled into the harbor of Hilo, the main town on the island of HawaiiIIilo is again threatened by the big volcano, I read recently. "The burning lake of Kilauea is always active and doing busiuess, and it was decided to give all hands shore leave in order that they might have a chance to take the really fine trip up to the lake of fire which. by the way, is just about as close in resemblance to our ideas of the hot finishing place as anything I ever want to see. "Word was passed around the ship for'ard that liberty would be given at Hilo, and you can picture the hiliarty of a crew that had been sewed up on board without liberty for nearly three months. "Every man had three months' pay saved up on the books, and, al though the idea wasn't expressed in so many words, this expedition to the bumintr lake of Kilauca was devised and intended to be anout tuc most colossal drunk in the history of the ship's company. The men went about smacking their lips in anticipation, and it was dead easy to see that they intended to apply hot and rebellious rum to their blood from the beginning of the liberty to the end thereof. "The whole starboard watch, about 150 men, went ashore about 7 o'clock in the morning, and just about 4 minutes after the gang hit the beach each man had two big black bottles stowed in the slack of his mustering shirt, to be consumed on the ride up to the burning lake. "The master-at-arms assembled the whole gang at the livery stable at Hilo whence the start was to be immediately made. When the bluejacks reached the stable no man had more than three or four drinks under his belt, on account of the necessarily hurried preparation for the start. "At the livery stable they found fourteen nice-lookinir American young women waiting for buses to take them up to the burning lake. 'Now these bluejacks hadn't seen American women for a lonir time, and the sight of them was good for sore eyes. They all saw at once that as the youtie women (they were all school teachers from Detroit, Cleveland and Cincinnati. who had clubbed together for a vacation in Hawaii) were bound up to the burning lake, the projected drunk would sure have to be called off for the present. "The master-at-arms, who was going along, passed word around to this effect, and then a remarkable thing happened. Every man jack of the bunch of bluejacks deposited his two bottles in a corner of the livery stables, subject to claim when he should return to Hilo from the trip up to the burning lake. All the men had intended to blast holes in the sugar plantations on the ride up, and such-like, but, out of de ference to the young women from their own land, they simply passed the drink up. "The seven-hour ride up to the Volcano House, which sits close to the edge of the burning lake, was made by those school teachers un der circumstances which they are not likely to forget, for they had all the way a deferential guard of 150 .strapping bluejacks, who kept their distance and yet performed all sorts of kindnesses for the Amri,, girls. "Not a drop did a man of them drink that day or the following day, on the afternoon of which thev . corted the young women back to Hilo, after all hands had seen the appalling lake of fire. "When the young women left the buses at Hilo, the spokes woman of the party made a neat little talk to the bluejacks, thank ing them for their 'knightly conduct' and telling them that tltcir noble behavior towards women in a strange land had completely upset all of their preconceived notions as to sea-wanderers ashore, and all that sort of thing. "The Jackies grinned during the speech of the little lady, and some of them winked solemnly at each other. A boat's crew was made up to row the party of girls ofl to the steamer that was waiting to take them back to Honolulu. 'The young women were no sooner quit of the Hilo beach than the postponed drunk began to hap pen. For three solid days Hilo became a sort of Cripple Creek, Devil's Gulch and Dead wood rolled into one. The gang simply took the town apart and fired a volley over it. 1 hey put the cops on the run, and a hundred special police officers, Kanakas, were sworn in to preserve order. "Twenty minutes after they'd been sworn in the bluejackets heard of it, and then the whole layout of Kanaka marshals took to the moun tains and stood there till it was all over. Chain guards of marines were sent ashore from the ship to gather in the riotous gang, but the sea soldiers no sooner hit the beach than they joined the gay, glad throng of bluejackets, and the de vil was to pay, sure enough. "At the end of three days the whole port watch was sent ashore to gather in the whooping star board watch, and the next morning about 125 bluejackets and marines, many of them with broken faces and heads, and all of them permeat ed with that tired feeling, had to face the skipper at the stick. It was the most fatigued and funny looking lot of returned liberty men I ever looked at, and I've seen the aftermaths of bluejacket drunks in a good many comers of the earth. "But they postponed the drunk out of deference to women, all right, and I guess that wasn't an instance of the civilizing and uplifting influ ence of the American girl in a strange land."

Among all the forms of vegetable life in the Mexican tropics the wild fig trees are the most remarkable. Some of them show such apparent intelligence in their readiness to meet emergencies that it is difficult to not credit them with powers of volition. In the tropics, where the wild figs flourish, there is a constant strug gle for life among numberless species of plants. Certain of the wild figs appear to have learned this and provide a fruit which is a favorite food for many birds; then an occasional seed is dropped by n bird where it finds lodgement in the exile of a palm frond high in the air. There the seed takes root and is nourished by the little accumula tion of dust and vegetable matter. It sends forth an aerial root, which creeps down the palm, sonjetimes coiling about the trunk on its way. When this slender, cord-like rootlet reaches the grouud it secures ioot hold and becomes the future trunk of the fig tree. After the descending rootlet has secured itself in the grouud a branch bearing a few leaves springs fron the palm top and a vigorous growth begins. Then the fig gra dually enlarges and incloses the supporting palm trunk until the lat ter is completely shut in the heart of its foster child and eventually strangled. He Firm.
