DANCER OF SNAKES.
This country is correctly denomi
nated the " Paindiscof the Pacific,"
and, according to popular statement,
it was more of a paradise beforjo the
advent of the white man than it is
now; for he not only introduced
diseases and vices before unknown
to the 'simple islanders, but is also
credited with the introduction of
, scorpions, centipedes, and mosqui
tos; and everybody knows how
much of our evening discomfort is
due to the last-named little pests.
There is one thing with which most
other countries' are cursed, which
was not in this paradise before the
white man came, is not here now,
. and we trust never will be during
all time to come that is, snakes.
But it cannot be said that there is
' no danger of those loathsome crea-
. tures being unintentionally brought
into the countiy, getting adrift,
breeding and multiplying, and in a
few years becoming as plentiful as
centipedes now n.-e. It is neither
impossible nor improbable that live
snakes may be unwittingly landed
heie at a 113' time, concealed in lumber
or bales of hay. As a matter of
fact, a snake was found in a bale of
imported ha in a livery-stable on
King street, a few days ago. When
discovered it was lifeless, but ap
parently had not long been so. Jin
like manner there is danger of intro
ducing ithe living reptile.
A SUMMER RESORT.

Kapiolani Park and was the first
settler there has determined to erect
cottages on jhis land .there ,nnd let

Yhstkhuay some one took the dead
bodj' of the snake which had been found
in a bale of hay at the Hawaiian stables
and laid it in the road makai of the
Government Buildings. A number of
people thought that it had got loose
fiom some place and been run over.
On "Wednesday, and Thuisdny nights
about twenty of the volunteers went up
to the top of Punchbowl and had target
practice. The custom will probably be
continued monthly. It is about the
most sensible thing in connection with
the volunteers that we have yet heard
Yr.STi:isi)AY morning a Chinaman went
into J. T. Waterliouse's store to buy a
quarter's worth of buttons., While, so,
doing he stole a dollar's woYtlu He Was
arrested and taken to the Station Hoiuc
and searched when, not only the but
tons, but opium was found on him. He
was therefore locked up pnltwo charges.
The Grand Louvic of Brussels is now
formally open, and Mr. C. Michiels and
Mr. Block, arc ready to attend court,
cously on all visitors. In'takingia look
round ye.stciday we especially noticed
Iris line quality salin-lined gent's mits
the beautiful hand-made Biusscls, Du
chess, Spanish, and pointlnccsand lace'
fans, the cmbroideiic3, the lich stock of
silks, satins, Surah silks, silk handkci
chiefs, nud lace cuitnins. Tiunks, of all
sizes, and valises help to make up 911c of
the choicest stocks in Honolulu.
It appears that of late at the Chinese
Theatic the actors have been in the
receipt of letters which they style iiJA
suiting. On Thuisday evening a young
Chinaman was going over King Stieet
biidgc to the 'theatre when ho was ac.
costed by another whoi$aid,'Wherctarc
you going." On being told, he was
asked to take a letter along. He did so
and two of the actors on reading it vio
lently assaulted him so that Dr. Brodie
had to be sent for. Yestculay Ah Yim
Pong the person who stopped the others,
was arrested by the Police. He ad
111 its writing many letters befoioand
the envelope of tlih one but denies that
the letter in it was wr'.lt2njby him. He
seems somewhat crazy.
