WHAT IS BACK OF THE SEEN.
The following is a. brief out-llnc of
Iho excellent and weighty sermon
pi cached by Mr. Cruzau on Sinulay
Tho man wlio earnestly loves
truth seeks it from every source.
"Whoever is afraid of scientific truth
does not believe in God. We speak
of two Testaments given us of God,
but there arc four: The Oldest, the
Old, the Now, and tho Newest. Tho
Old and tho Now arc written. The
Oldest and the Newest arc uhwi it
ten. Tho Oldest tells us how the
.Scon came to be. The Newest con
tinues the record of God's dealings
with man since tho sacred canon
dosed. The Oldest Testament is
just as authoritative as tho Qld or
tho Now. All history is snored
How did tho Seen como to be?
Wo must go, not to the Old, but to
tho Oldest Testament for the an
swer. Scicucc, reading its pages
backward, leads us to the point
where wc stand upon the glowing
crystals of a newly-formed woild a
World without any form of life. But
his is only a few of the first chap
,tcis in this Oldest Testament.
Chemical Science takes these glow
ing crystals on which we stand, and
reduces them to their original atoms
they become a liquid mass.
Science tells us that this was the
primal condition of tho Universe;
that out of this the Seen came to be.
Standing there, looking out upon
'this liquid mass of atoms, wo ask,
.'How did tho Seen come to bo?"
Science is ready with her answer:
She says that each atom floating
.here at our feet, is tho home of cer
tain definite forces, which will un-
crringly, and without
a shadow of
variation, determine its alliances,
nud necessitate its combinations for
ever; that these atoms combined
and re-combined through countless
ages, and thus at last, the Seen
came to be. "We accept the fact of
mailer and its inherent forces, but
wo ask Science, "Whence came
matter? Who clothed it with these
wonderful forces? Who guidcil and
directed them no that they combined
and re-eoinbincd upon apian, at hist
produced this Seen, this Universe of
ineffable skill and beauty?" So far
from accounting for the Seen, they
aic an included part of it, which
needs to be accounted for. They
arc a cnuso of the Seen, but not tho
cause that lies back of thorn, con
trolling, guiding, and working them
on an intelligent plan.
listen to what Science tells you
of life, if you would have an apt
illustration of the absolute necessity
for a guiding intelligence back of
these natural forces. All living
organisms consist of three parts:
nutrient matter, germinal matter or
bioplasm, and formed matter or
tibsuc. Only one-fifth is really
alive, the bioplasm. "All life is
from bioplasm," has been tho teach
ing of Science since 18G0.
Tut living tissue under the strongest
microscopo : You will see httlo
calls, and witlpn them a transparent,
colorless, glue-like, apparently struc
tureless substance. That is a bio
plast. Under all the tests known to
science it is the saino in tho animal,
tho nlant. the snoncc, and tho
Ijniiii. Into every cell thcro Hows a
stream of dead, nutrient matter ; the
Jjioplast seizes upon it, nud by a
process of which science knows
nothing, and cannot imitate, con
verts' it into living matter, and pours
it out of the coll. This littlo color
less, vital tiling in tho cell, is tho
solo 'means by which every kind of
living thing is made, lias been made,
or will be made. Tho bioplast has
tho power of motion ; the power, of
self-subdivision throws oil' new bio
plasts, and each has tho same powers
in the original. They arc tireless
workers. Each has its own work
nud will do no other. One weaves
nerve, another muscle, another bono
rrbut by no force, or process can
the niusclc-wcaving bioplast bo made
to weave bone, or nerve and yet,
wiUcfJt tho microscope, they are
exactly alike. They not only weave
in straight lines, but, as in tho case
of some norvqs, spirally around
b'her tissues, as your vino winds
.ground tho trellis. More wonder
ful still, In some cases they weave
tho tissues together, inter-lacing
thO tiSSUCS ' tOgCUIcr, lllier;llH!lUJ
thcin, as tho weaver ilocs the tumids
indrTiIo the weaver,
upon a pattern, by a
plan, so that at tholaBt, theio comes
as tho result of their weaving yonder
n plant, Uowcring in beauty, above
you a bird cleaving tho air, and here
as tho crowing Piaster-piece, man
with all his wonderful mechanical
complexities of body, and intellectu
al and spiritual capacities. Now
bolievc, if you will, that that little
glue-like substance in the cell there,
from its inherent forces is able, tin
nided, to do all this, but never there
after sneer at Cluistians about
" blind credulity," and " boundless
Wo ncccpt evolution as a fact.
Wc simply differ from the material
istic evolutionists in holding that
back of all these iiihoicutj, naliual
forces, there is a directing, guard
ing, controlling power. The best
science of to-rtuy is not materialistic,
but thcistie. "With Agassiz, 'on
Ponikesc Island, it kneels bcfoic
that Power back of nature and
nature's forces, and worships Him.

On the night of the 22nd we had a
terrific thunder-storm, tho lightning
struck the telephone line in tho
vicinity of Ililo and damaged it to
the extent of several hundred
dollars. On the morning of the 23d
tho clouds rolled away and revealed
Mauna Kwa covered with snow for
miles down its sides a grand sight
and Wafifit snow of the season.
The Ililo Library Association
gave an amateur performance at the
Court House on the evening of the
2fth, which was well attended in
spile of the very bad weather. The
performance was a success, and was
repeated on the evening of tho 28th,
to a good audience about $150 was
realized for tho purchase of books
for the Association. The tax-payers,
native and foreign, held a mass
meeting at the Court House on the
28th, and resolutions were passed,
and ordered to bo printed in both
native and English papers, condemn
ing the notion of the assessor, E.
Kckoa, in raising the taxes enorm
ously without justification or
giving notification to tho tax-payers
of having done so ; also dissatisfac
tion was expressed at the Minister
who appointed such a man.
The surf has been very high the
past few days, and wo hear that
nearly all of Mr. Lidgatc's now works
at Kaiwilahilahi (near Laupahochoe)
have been swept away. This must
be a great loss.
On the 2Cth the schooner Courser,
Capt. Wm. Colby, anived, 30 days
from Port Towiibcnd, with full
cargo of lumber for Shipman &
Bridges. Surf is still high, and
Likclike obliged to go over to the
Waiakea side of the bay. Wo need

OPINION OF AN EMINENT ARTIST.
Mit. TiiKooonr. Hacikx. Tho
editor of the New York Weekly Re
view, one of the leading musical
papers of this country, in speaking
of.thc Colibri Piano, said: "It is
much smaller and weighs considera
bly less than anysquaio Piano Foito
wo have yet seen. It can bo handled
with perfect ease ; at'tho same time
it offers nono of those, ungainly
aspects which some other alterations
of tho usual shape have presented.
It is a thorough square Piano Forte,
only very small, but at tho same
timo very proportionate and beauti
ful aiid can speak to.such an ex
tent, with such power and sonoiity,
that wo must sec, as well as hear it,
to believe it possible. Here is truly
'a gieat soul in a small body.'
Throughout the scale tho tone is
even, very full and sonorous, brilli
ant and melodious; tic action is
easy, and the woikmanship indi
cates great caie on tho pait of those
who were intrusted witli it." These
pianos are for sale at G. F. Wells'
