Irritating and vexatious nature.
Tor a considerable timo I experi

famous Sarsapariiia being strongly

it, and after taking two bottles it
was most gratifying to seo nnd feel
the effect in allaying the irritation
and reducing tho eruptions. When
I had used threo bottles tho erup

I have never been troubled with
anything of tho kind since."

in wiu year ou a large nutn
b. r of Babylonian tablets wore
acquired by tht trustees of tbo
British Museum, ouo of which,
having recently beon deciphered
and published, dosorves, the
Manchester Guardian Buys, to be
specially noticod, us it throws
considerable light on many hither
to obsouro pussagos in soripturo
histor'. The tublet is of unbaked
clay, aionsuring GJ inohos by 7 'J
Indus, and is inscribed on both
sides in tho Babylonian charactor,
with a ooinpleto chroniclo of
ovonts immediately following up
on the yoars 747 D. c.
Tho tablet begins with thoroign
of Hubu-uuzur m 747 B. C, and
ends with the accession of Sha-niiish-sum-ukin,
who was a foster
brother of Assur-buni-pal,G67,tho
famous Surdauupalus of Greek
writers. In tho oarly yoars of
Kabu-unzjr'a roign a violent dis
turbance broke out in JBorsippa,
which was with great difficulty
put down. During tho revolt tho
statues of some of the gods were
tukon away, which led to further
complications with tho Babylo
nians. Ono Nndinu, whouppoars
to liavo been tho leader ot the
robelb, dud.uud peace was restor
ed, but not for long, for wo nre
informed in tho next puragraph
that tho uccossion of Tiglath Pilesor
was the signal for another und
moro violent disturbanco.Bands of
Elumites, Moubites und nomads
bogau to Hock in from all parts
and overrun the country; more
over, as tho spirit of rebollion
had spread us far as Phoenicia,
there was great ft-ur of tho wholo
of vV ostein Asia boing drawn into
a general war. At this point the
tublot throws considerable light
on a cortuin passage of scripture
In 11. Kings xv. 19 we read:
"And Pul, tho king of Assyriu,
cnine against tho laud, and Menn
hom gavo Pul a thousand talents
of silver, that his hand might bo
with him to confirm the kingdom
in his hand." Now there has
boon much controversy among
historians ns to the identity uf
this Assyrian king Pul. No such
king is known on the monumonts,
neither is a king of that name
mentioned in the cunoifomi in
scriptions. Tho recently dis
covered tablet, however, com
pletely clears up this historical
enigma. It appears that Tiglath
Pilosor adopted a policy similur to
that followed in later times by
Sargou and Sennacherib. This,
which may bo called tho policy of
reconciliation, consisted of nllow
ing tho court of Assyria to resido
for six months of tho your at Ni
novoh nnd six months at Babylon.
This would naturally give satis
faction to tho Babylonian as woll
ua to the Assyrian portion of the
population. Duriuglbesix months
that tho court resided ut Babylon
everything was curried out in tho
Bub louiuu style. Now wo find,
according to the now tablet, that
I'ul is given as a Babylonian ab
breviated foim of tho nutivo As
syrian Tukulti-Pal-Uzur, whioh,
of courso, ha6 como to bo called
by ub Tiglath Pilesor. We hnvo
here, theroforo, a solution of tho
scriptural enigma, and wo Cud
that Tiglath Pilesor and Pul are
ono and tho same king.
The next important passage in
the tublet is that concerning tho
death of Sennacherib and tho ac
cession of his son Esarhaddon.
Whon Sonnacherib uscondod tho
throno wo find that littlo by littlo
tho various foreign states which

HONOLULU. H. I.. MONDAY.
refused to send tho annual gifts
to Ninovoh; and. moreover, Me
roduch Daludun, king of Babylon,
attempted to freo himself from
.Assyrian rulo. Sennacherib, at
tho hnncl of a largo army, crossed
tho Euphrates nnd inarched on
Babylon, loaving tho aflminis
trution of tho home nfTuiis to
Esarhuddon. Moroduch Baludan ,
on hearing of tho approach of tho
Assyrians, Hud to tho marshes,
thus leaving Sennacherib mufctcr
of the situiitinn. Finding that
no further good could be douo in
Babylonia, Sennacherib invaded
Elam, whioh was avenged by
Hallusu, king of Elam, marching
to Babylon and placing a cortuin
Norgul-uzezib upon tho Baby
lonian throne. Tho tablot next in
forms us concerning tho death of
Sonnncherib,aiid us this will doubt
tless bo of tho greatest intorest, wo
will oxiunino it sido by side with
tho scriptural account of tho samo
ovont. In II. Kings xix. 37 wo
have tho account of Sennacherib's
death givon thus: "And it oamo
to pass us ho (Sennacherib) wu
worshipping in tho houso of
Ninrooh, his god, that Adrura
tnolcch and Sharezor, his sons,
smoto him with tho sword; and
they escaped into tho land of
Armenia. And Esarhaddon, his
sou, reigned in his stoad." What
says the tablet? Esarhuddon was
tho favourite son of Sennacherib,
and when tho king went out on
his Baby Ionian campaign ho left
him ns a kind of viceroy in
Ninoveh. Hardly hnd Sonnu
ohorib left tho country when a
revolt broke out, houded by two
of his sous, against thoir brother.
In column 3, lino 34, wo
have tho oxuet day and
month of tho assassination of tho
king givon thus: "Arnh Teboto
umu esru, Sin ahi eriba surru
mat As-sur apli-suin si-hi iduk-su
Arhu Adar uraii siununoirit
Assur-uhi-iddiuu npli-sn inu mat
Assur ina Itussi usesib." "Tho
month Tibul (January-February)
the day 20, Sonnacherib, king of As
yrin.in a revolt his son killed him.
Tho month Adar (March
April), the day 18, Esarhuddon,
bis son, in tho laud of Assyria, sat
on tho throne."
It is needless to point out the
closo connection between tho tub
let nnd the scriptnrul account.
Enough has beon said to show
that in this now and interesting
discovery wo have ono more testi
mony to tho genoral accuracy of
Good Old Lady fone.

The annual meeiing uf tho

pany couvoned this morning at 10
o'clock in tho rooms of tho asso

those present were F A Sohaofer,

from the following plantations:

President Shucfor tnado an ad
dress, welcoming to those present
at tho meeting and thanking
those who had como from
afar for their attendance.
The present moeting pro
mised to bo of more than usual
intorost, as owing to tho work of
Dr. Max wo 11 tbo sphero of tho as
sociation had becomo much en
larged. It was proposed to
still further enlarge it, but
it would, bo loft to tho members to
say to what extent. Under the
changes recently inaugurated the
association hud outiun tiio pro
jects of its articles of incorpor
ation und a project would bo laid
beforo tho meeting to disincorpor
ate and reorganize under a new
numo. Tho Socrttury's report
would coutain much of intorost
together with suggestions us to
ways and int-tins. Tho mutter of
the denudation of forestd would
bo brought before tho meeting,
together with an exhaustivo ro
port on forestry by tho Commis
sioner of Agriculture. It hopod
that the action of tho mooting
thereon nnd on tho matters to
como before it would bo fruitful
of bonefioial und practical rosults
which would result in tho com
mon good of tho members.
Tho annual report of Secrotury
Bolto was then read. It reforred
to tho institution of tho experi
mental station and tho visits of
Professor Maxwell to the difforont
plantations and mado various
recommendations for carrying on
the work inaugurated.
Tho roport of tho treasurer, P.
C. Jones, was probubly tho most
interesting read. It showed ro
coipts during tho year to have
been $9583.03 und disbursements
of :fl0,73u'.3u leaving an ovordruft
of $1153.73 to bo met.
The report iiioludc'd an estimate
of the oxpouses of the coming
your, which included salaries (in
cluding half of Prof. Koebole's
which the assooiution had guar
anteed) expenses of tho experi
mental station and running ex
penses, amounting altogether, in
cluding tho overdraft, to $10,072.
50, which amount tho trustees
proposed to raise oithor by a di
reot assessment on sugur or by
an assessment of 50 conts por
ton on all fortilizors used.
On motion the reports of tho
seorotsry and treasurer wero ro
oeivod and ordorcd printed at
length in the Planters' Montly.
P. C. Jonos moved that an as
sessment to bo limitod to ton conts
per ton on, tho last year's orop bo
lovicd, five conts of which share
bo payable immediately to the
trousurer, balnncoat tho discretion
of tho trustees.
Amendments wore made in
creasing tho amount to 12 and 15
cents, and tho lattor was adopt' d.
P. C. Jones then moved t lint nil

u long discussion, Mr. .Tones argu

duco an estimated rovenue of $10,

being used annually amounting to
Mr. Httckfeld doubted if all the
itssos-moiits could bo legally col
lected, nnd suggested that in any
event it would come out of the
planters' pockets, as they would
bo mado to pay an oxtrn ohargo.
In Louisiana it was collected by a
State tax but he -doubted if n pri
vate association had the right to
levy such nn ussopsment oi
whether they could collect it if
thoy did. He wns in favor of
referring tho matter to a commit
too and nt any ruto of rodncing
tho assessment to 25 cants a ton.
Messrs. Scott nnd Kennedy
favorod tho analysing of all for
tilizors by the association, so that
iti members could bo suro of get
tmu what thoy paid for, but wore
in favorof pnyingall exponses con
nected with so doing by moans of
a direct usbossmont on tho sugar
produced. Some plantations
noided no fertilizers and honco
would hnvo an ndvantngo undor
the plan proposed over thoso who
had to use largo quantities.
F. M. Swanzyproposod that tho
planters of tho Association bind
thoraselves not to uso any fertili
zers except those sold under tho
certificate of analysis of tho As
sociation's ohomiut, nnd that for
the purposo of procuring tho As
