Thero is in tho latest numbor of
tlio Honolulu Diocesan Mngazino,
edited by Bishop Willis, nn nrti
olo on tlio "Hygiono of tho
Bible." Its purposo is ' to point
out that tho landing principles of
health, so far from being tho dis
covory of tho prosont uge, as this
-genoration in its boastfuluess is
.apt to imagine, wore- enunciated
by SIosos twonty-four conturios
ago. and are laid down in the sacred
rrolumo for nil who will study them."
Wondor is expressed in tho article
that these principles should havo
'been neglected for couturios by
Christian nations, tnoro especial
ly when no peoplo on earth havo
enjoyed such immunity from opi
'domics as the Jews, in conso
tjtionco of thoir adheronco t tlio
sanitary lnws of Moses. Mosos
had to conduct two million people
out of Fgypt, and "when anyone
reflects how quickly an unsanitary
condition can arise in a small
city like Honolulu, with not more
ihnn ii.3,000 inhabitants scattered
over a lingo area, ho will readily
sonceivo how quickly a camp con
taining a population equal to thut
f Now York, Brooklyn and Jersoy
City put together would havo bo
come u broeding ground for pesti
ience unless tho strictest regula
tions woro enforced."
Bishop Willis proceeds to say:
'Tho three principal causes of
'Jfeeaso we now knowaro: 1. Docny
ing animal and vogotublo matter.
'2. Improper food. 3. Improper
clothing. AH theso mattors tho
-Slosuic legislation took into con
sideration." As to the fiit tho
writer cites a passage showing
that "no unclean thing" was per
mitted within tho camp of tho
1 Children of Lsruol, and continuos:
It is not only moral uncloan
ness that is hore meant. The Ho-
bicw word crvah hero used moans
"both "shame'' nnd "filthiness."
'Tho connection in which the word
is hero u.-od makes it quito plain
ihat tho sanitary systoji of Moses
toloratod no cess-pit or dumping
ground for garhago within tho
limits of tho camp. Nor did lo
islation stop with rulos for loop
ing tho camp itself in a sanitary
condition. Moses was fully aware
jf the danger of noxious ofllnviu
being carried by the breezes back
into the camp. Consequently the
.(srnolitos were instructed to pro
vent any such possibility by cov
ering nil excieta with tho earth,
nature's deodoriser nnd d'siufc
tant. Thejo were daily sacrifices of
animals on tho ultur of burnt
otluring, and in somo cases only
part of the carcases required to bo
consumed. Tho ashes had to bo
removed daily to a plnco outside
the cami), and tho unburn! parts
-bad to ho carried without the
. :amp and burnt on tho dumping
ground for tho ashes. It is be
lieved by tho Bishop that all dial
and garhago woro likowiso to bo
. carried out and burnt, and
-io says, "This belief is
-supported by our knowl
edge thut in later times perpetual
fires woio kopt burning on the
iuud of Iliunom, in tho deep
gorgo outsido Joru&ulem, for the
destruction of tho ofl'al of the city,
and theso firos caused 'Oohonnii,'
the laud of iliunom, to bo used as
n figuro of hcll-firo (Matt. v. 22).
"With regard to the Mosaic le
gislation upon food, tho writor of
tho articlo recalls tho division of
all floah, iish and fowl into two
classes, clean and unclean, lie
"Wilhono or two exceptions
tho creatures not allowed to ho
ontoii re beasts and birds of prey,
thosojthat food upon carrion, and

of tho oaith or tho water. All
who have read Mrs. Nakuina's
loiter in tho Advertiser ii recog
nize at onco tho wisdom of the
Mosaic law, which pormittod nn
pioductof the wutors, whethorof
tlio seas or rivers.to bo oaton, ex
copt that which hath tins and
ecalos Lor. xi. 9-13). They will
rec gnizo tho Divino Wisdom
which prohibited such foul food
ors as crabs and mud iish from
being made articles of human diot.
That lottor should make it as
clear as daylight that if ouly the
diiloreuco betweon clean and un
olean, as laid down in tho Loviti
cal law, woro still in force, and
observed by overyono.thoro would
bo no cholera today in Honolulu.
"With regard to clothing," tho
expositor romarks, "tho Mosaic
legislation forbado tho manufac
turers to adulterate thoir woollen
fabrics with linen or cotton
thread. That this prohibition
was for the sako of hoalth will bo
understood by all who havo studied
Dr. Jaeger's Hoalth Culture"
Tlio whole article herosummarizod
and largoly quoted from vorbntim
is one to "road, mark, learn and
inwardly digest," which if doue
by the public at largo und the
health authorities ought to prove
ominently useful. It affords n
powerful argument in support of
the Bulletin's adrocucy of having
all garhago burned by a scientific

In the Pilot Chart of tho North
Pacific Ocoan is an illustrated
description of a devico for pouring
oil on troubled waters. It is the
invontion of Thomas W. Wilson,
a soarnan of tho Unitod States
navy, recontly sorving on tho
training ship Portsmouth, and is
Hpokon of as a good thing by tho
editor of the Chart.
"A Japanose," who does not
obcorvo the rulo of sending his
real narao with a letter for pub
lication, gives tho second-hand
information that two cihin pas
sengers from Yokohama were
landed from tho steamer China
tho night of her arrival. This
news was given in the Bulletin
on tho following day, together
with tho name of ono of tho pas
sengers who registered at tho
Hawaiian Hotol. The passengers
and thoir baggago woro fumigated,
contrary to a further statomont of
tho correspondent, nnd they wero
landed under tho usual rules gov
erning cabin passongers by
"olean" vossols.
Who aro tho "individuals,"
mentionod by tho Star, "who be

"While the Governmnt has no
money to waste, it is not in dis
tress by any means and has am
ple resources," says tho Star.
This assertion is of a pieco with
the falso information given by
the Government's organs and its
confidential correspondents of for
eign journals for two years. Tho
Government is wasting money all
tno time on a usoless military
force and a pornicious spy syi

and so bankrupt in lawful ro

One of the most iuteiosting

Judge Oijdcn of Oakland
recently gave a young married
woman some good advice when
he refused to grant her a
divorce. The couple had been
married three years and were
quite young, but they evident
ly got along about as well as
most married people do. How
ever, the young woman thought
bhe ought to have a divorce
and filed a complaint against
her husband alleging cruelty.
The specific facts set forth
were that her husband fre
quently slapped her, whether
playfully or not the complaint
does not state, and that once
he spoke crossly to her. This,
however, was while the hus
band was putting up a stove,
and therefore cannot be won
dered at. On another occasion
the young wife says her hus
band threatened her, but in
answer to tne Judge sue ex
plained he had only told her
the proper thing to bring her
under subjection would be to
raise a family. But this poor
husband's greatest ofiense lay
in his feet. He had big ones
according to his wife, and on
one occasion he had the auda
citv to place them in her lap,
and she said, "he had his boots
In refusing to grant a divorce
on such trivial testimony Judge
Ugden gave the wue a little
fatherly lecture. " You can
hardly expect the court to grant
you a divorce upon such testi
mony. 11 we were to .erant
you a divorce upon that sliow-
inf mere would not ue a
couple in Oakland that would
not be entitled to a divorce. It
is impossible to tind Human
nature that is ideally perfect.
There are many little imper
fections that education anct as
sociation will smooth off, and
married people must exercise
forbearance and patience. In
stead of widening the breach
close it up. A young couple
such as you are will find mar
ried life a very happy existence
if you will return to your home
and not do just what you have
been doing heretofore."
That Oakland Judge had
some sense, indeed it is ap
parent that his wisdom arose
from experience. It is a pity
there are not more like him. If
there were there would be
fewer divorces and more hap
py homes. What is home
without a mother-in-law and
the privilege of putting your
feet on your wife's lap without
puttingVour boots on first.
All of which reminds us of
another little story. By the
si earner Australia we have re
ceived one of the largest con
signments of hardware ever
landed on these fly specks of
the Pacific. It comprises an
assortment of plated ware, ideal
coffee pots, three and five
thousand gallon tanks, steel
wire cloth, flour sifters, black
smith's bellows, wire mats,
cutlery, feather dusters, hoe
handles, Lai norma lawn sprink
lers, lanterns, shovels, rice
plows, bath tub enamel, Dis
ston's No. 2 cane knives, mill
saw files, sole leather and as
sorted goods such as varnishes,
patent water closets, paint
burner's, Hendry's mixed
paints, hose in all sizes and
qualities, metallic paint in oil
and shooting coats.
We have also received a
fresh shipment of "Tribune"
and "Monarch" bicycles, with
lamps and fittings of all kinds.
All of the above goods are
on the wharf and may be ship
ped to any port or the islands.
