"This chant," says Abraham For nnnder In his Polynesian ivace, volume 2, page 284. "is one of the longest known chants In the Hawaiian anthol ogy, comprising 563 lines, according to some erslons, and 612 according to others, "This mele Is said to have been composed by Kapaahulanl and his bi other Kamakaaulanl. and chant' I'd by the former within hearing of the two armies previous to the battle of lUahumoa." fought by Kualll against the Ewa chiefs who had rebelled ngalnst blm. "It bears," continues Mr. Kornnnder In his account, "all the In ternal evidences, In language, con Htiuctlon, and Imagery, of having been composed at the tlmo It purports to iio. ami was widely. known among the elite' and tho priesthood at the time of f'antnln Cook's arrival." in ma iooi note on page 280. Mr. Fornander states "Of that mele or chant, how ever, there Is no doubt as to Its age. It was evidently composed during tho lifetime of Kualll, who must have died Homo time previous to 1730."

Mr. Kamakau found In an old chant belonging to the same King, the blrthplaco of Kualll, whlci was at Kalapawal, In Kallua, District of Koolatipoko.

Even fifty years ago, few English women ride to I hounds, and at the beginning of the century tne woman wno tun lonow cue hunt was regarded askance by conven tional society.

On tho other hand, some doctors deplore hard riding by children nnd insist that It is Injurious to the growing school girls' health It Is In connection with these youth ful riders that the arguments for and Ing girl, matters are rather different, against tho cross saddle aro raging Many doctors contend that much riding The older English women do not take on a side saddle Induces a tendency to to the cross saddle, as have done so splnat curvature and hinders symmct many American women. Occasionally rlcal development of the body, with the Devon and Somerset stag Other authorities dclare the cross hounds, several women may be seen saddle Is more Inimical to the young riding astride, but that Is almost tho girl's health than the side saddle.

Insist that the any conventional prejudice or fear of girl trained to a cross saddlo Is as offending proprieties, but from a prev alent conviction that a cross saddle will be a drawback rather than an aid io .oi-ian's success In tne hunting field I Exerts point out the fact that tlci pneentage of women thrown Is iur less than that of the men that a stum- hie on landing which would throw nlno girl ride alternately on left and right but of ten men from the Saddle, will side.

It Is admitted that. In case of a really bad fall, a woman stands less chance of coming off uninjured than a man, because she is hampered by skirts and the pommel; but such accidents are, I fortunately, very rare. In the case of the young and grow- awkward and helpless when In her first season, she changea to a side saddle, as she would bo If she had ner er ridden at all The controversy rages IWcely. Meanwhile some souls, bent on com promise, suggest that all difficulties may be solved by having the young riding skirt for girts has been patented which allows Its wearer to ride on cither side of the saddle.
