Lanai is noted for the extent anil
character of its fisheries. It was once
the favorite fishing resort of Hawaiian
royalty. The island is sixth in point
of size of the group, and in common
with its sister isles is clearly and un
mistakably of volcanic origin. The
round and landlocked valley of I'ala
wai. with its grassy plain containing
more than ten thousand acres of rich
soil, was in ages past the crater of a
great volcano, which, after the great
upheaval which forced the chain up
ward through and above the waters,
still served as a vent for the molten
mass anil gases beneath the earth's
crust. The island is also unique in
that it is the only one of the group
which has a coral reef on the wind
ward side. The Kanaka population is
now in the neighlmrhood of two hun

cultivating small patches, in sheep
herding and in fishing. One of the
places of interest here is the native
temple where, in the old days, the
heathenish rites were wont to be per
Lanai is in places well supplied with
water; there are springs and several
small streams in ravines, and upon the
beach in different places wells have
been sunk which furnish a liberal sup
ply of fresh water. There is one per
petual river, or rivulet, which flows
through the ravine of Maunalei. The
lovers of the grand and beautiful in
nature will here find much to gratify,
and the botanist especially will obtain
much food for study and entertaining
research among the numerous canyons
covered with shrubs and forests.
The island of Xiihau is the eighth in '
size of the islands composing the Ha
waiian archipelago, and the last of
any importance from a commercial, ag
ricultural or s1 ock-raising stand
point. It lies to the southwest of
Kauai, whence it is reached after an
at times agreeable passage by
steamer, or the traveler whose time is
valuable can cross the narrow passage
which separates it from that island by
the ever-convenient whaleboat. The
islet has an area of about 70,000 acres,
or something over 109 square miles. It
was once more thickly populated, but
is now little more than a large sheep
ranch, and the population consists
chiefly of shepherds and employes of
the firm. A fine grass which is indig
enous here and is not to be found
elsewhere, though closely resembling
the Guayaquil grass, used in the man
ufacture of Panama hats, was former
ly woven into Niikau mats, which
were noted for their great delicacy
and softness. These mats were woven
in different designs and colors, and
were really beautiful. They are now
very rare, and of late years the price,
which formerly ranged from 85 to fill
or so apiece, has advanced in an al
most exorbitant degree. Shells of
great beauty and of many varieties
are found upon the shores, and those
with a reddish, coral-colored seed are
gathered by the not over-industrious
natives, and, being strung into neck
laces and similar ornaments, are dis
posed of to their fellow-countrymen
and to foreigners. Considerable taste
and ingenuity are displayed in the
manufacture of these pretty articles;
and as tourists are, as a rule, ready to j
pay liberally for curiosities, the na
tives derive a considerable income
from their sule.
Wonderful Ingenuity of the Tiny Ants la
the Law Star State.
The author of "Tenants of an Old
Farm" tells of one of the remarkable
habits of the cutting-ants in Texas, as
observed by him. It relates to the
opening and shutting of the gates
which communicate with the interior
of the mound nests, which he found
were opened and closed before and
after every exit the ants make. These
gates are simply little heaps of dry
leaves, twigs and other refuse, which
are seen scattered here and there over
the mound as one approaches it in day
When I first saw them I was com
pletely deceived, and thought them
nothing more than accidental accumu
lations. I found out, however, that
these piles were raised above the sur
face opening of the galleries that pen
etrated the mound and filled the
mouths to the depth sometimes of an
inch and a half.
The leaves and chips were inter
mingled with pellets of soil, and occa
sionally below them the galleries were
quite sealed with pellets. The gal
leries frequently slant inward from
the gate, and at as great an angle as
forty-five degrees. Sometimes they de
flect a short distance from the top.
These comformations allow more read
ily the process of closing, as they give
a purchase to the material used.
The doors are opened about dusk.
First appear the minims, the very
small forms, creeping out of minute
holes, which they have doubtless made
by working inside and carrying grains
of sand away from the heap. Present
ly larger forms follow, carrying away
bits of refuse, which they drop a
couple of inches, more or less, from the

them the rubbish, which flies here and
there, and in a few moments is cleared
away from the gallery and spread

together for this purpose, and are

tVl.cs In Turkey. In I'rrsit, anil In Tlilhet—
I'liir.-illlv «»f Spimses.
' In Persia it is an almost invariable
eust,,m to choose a wife from among
one's relations, such as cousins in a
near or remote degree, and only among
acquaintances when failure has oc
curred in following the old habit. The
Hebrews especially sanctioned a plu
rality of wives according to the law of
Moses, ami that shows how thought
ful they were of the future of their
race —so muck so that sterility in a
wife was considered a sufficient reason
for e.infracting another marriage.
The lot of a Turk who has to bear
the whims and caprices of his numer- j
ous wives is anything but an enviable
one. says the Pall Mall Budget. The |
harem is not. as many persons suppose I
it is. a building wherein all a Turk's
wives live together. Each legitimate
wife of a pasha has a separate dwell
ing. her own cook, her own coachmen
—in a word, her own separate house
hold. True it is that all the dwellings
are inclosed within one surrounding
wall, and frequently they are beneath
one roof, as is the case in our modern
Hats, but nevertheless the isolation ia
complete among the wives. a !
The etiquette among Turkish ladies
is somewhat complicated and the sys
tem is hierarchical, the favorite exer
cising an undisputed authority ove ■
the others. In the sultan's harem thtt
supreme authority is vested in his
mother, who takes the title of sultana
valide. and she alone is entitled to go
to and fro in the harem unveiled. It
is only when she goes out that she
wears the yashmak. At the present
time the veil used by Turkish ladies
is no longer what it was. Its trans
parency admits of a pretty face being
easily outlined. When the yashmak
is very thiek one may conclude that
the face it hides is not very seductive.
In spite of the progress of civilization
and the consequent transformation of
habits and customs in many countries
the position of woman in Turkey has
only slightly changed; it is only in ex
ceptional cases that those belonging
to the higher classes are unaccom
panied out of doors by eunuchs.
These are the cadines, who have
adopted and follow the Paris and Lon
don fashions, and it has even been
whispered that there are mysterious
assignations in the shops of the grand
bazar at Constantinople, where some
ladies spend a good deal of their time
on the plea that they have numerous
purchases to make.
In Thibet they reverse the order of
things, for in that country it is not un
usual to see a woman married to a plu
rality of husbands, sometimes two or
more chosen from among her cousins.
Some of the Objections to Living In North
ern Borneo.
The northern halt of the island of
Borneo is the queerest and most un
satisfactory place to live that one can
imagine, thinks the St. Louis Globe-
Democrat. It is a land of constant re
curring phenomena, where cyclones
are frequent and deluges of water very
common. The vegetation in that half
is very fine, but in all probability the
Wildest and most tangled on earth—
not even excepting that of Africa. The
cause of all the trouble is the shallow
condition of the sea north of it, great
shoals of sand existing a few miles out
which extend along its entire northern
length. These shoals are covered by a
depth of water not over five feet deep.
The constantly recurring winds that
blow in that climate change to hurri
canes and sweep the smaller islands of
all visible life. When such a storm
strikes the sand shoals north of Bor
neo it sweeps up the shallow salt water
in its course and drenches the island
with it. Often it gathers up sand,
great masses of it, from the clear
swept shoal and whirls it for miles
high over the island, carrying it into
the island and scattering it every
where. The work of these storms does
not always end with that. Entire
shoals of fish, of all sizes, have been
swept up time and again by the fierce
wind with the water and sand and
scattered about Borneo. In some places
the ground would be literally covered
with fish, enough to supply a heavy
population for weeks. But such luck
is no reparation for the evil the winds
do, and consequently the northern half
will never be inhabited by those who
value their lives.
Nine-Year-old David Captures a Thirty
rK Two Found Carp.
An exciting combat between a nine
year-old boy and a thirty-two-pound
German carp took place on James
"Moore's farm, near Bristol, says the
Philadelphia Record. The Neshaminy
creek in rainy seasons fills the ditches
|of adjacent farms with water from
j eighteen inches to two feet deep. The
other day David Cherry, the young son
of John Cherry, of this place, and two
small companions went fishing up the
creek. In one of the open ditches on
the Moore farm the lads espied three
huge i carp flopping about, the water
being too shallow for them to swim
without greatly disturbing the sur
face. David, pluckier than his play
mates, jumped into the ditch and
seized the largest of the monster fish.
The carp, nearly as big as the boy, had
the advantage, being in its native ele
ment. Young Cherry had tight hold
of it, but the carp plunged through
the water and mud, dragging the lad
behind. The boys on shore thought
their companion would surely be
drowned, for often his whole body was
under water. At last the fish grew so
weary in his mighty efforts to escape
his captor that he could be thrown out
upon the bank. Then all three boys
jumped upon the carp and held him to
the ground until he had gasped out his
life. They lugged their trophy Borne
and put it on the' scales. The fish
weighed thirty-two pounds. ,
A Story Conrernlog the Early life of
Bishop Brooks.
A story is widely quoted that Phillips
Brooks, when about to graduate, went
to the president of Harvard college for
advice regarding the choice of a pro
fession, and that the president said:
"It is well in such a case to lay aside
impossible professions. Now, on ac-
I count of the impediment in your speech,
, you could never preach." .
This is so good a story that it is a
i pity to spoil it, but the Christian Union
| says that after the election of Mr.
. Brooks as bishop he was asked about
' its truth.
| "I did consult with the president,"
he answered, "and he encouraged me
i to choose the ministry; he did not tell
me I could not preach because of my
i stammering, because I never did stam-.
mer, you know!"
Then he spoke, with some amuse
ment, of the permanence of such
groundless reports, and said that he
• had that very week received a letter
from an English boy who was a stam
merer, and who begged to know, for
his own sake, how Dr. Brooks had
been cured. .a,.

help him at all!" ha concluded, with •
touch of regret. ; -v< ■<.,

An Official Whoao Duty It Is to
Throw Down a Glove.
A Chlvulrir Title Which !!*• Been Held
by the Pymnke Famll.v F.w Since
the flAjn of Ktrhnrd If.-Scott's
l>cs«'ri|)t lon of the Challenge.
. The death of Franeis Dymoke, tlie
queen i>{ England's champion, which
occurred at Homcastlc recently, has
reminded the world that even in the
midst of the present prosaic anil utili
tarian ape one knightly office, at least,
is in existence, to contradict the asser
tion of Edmund Burke that "the ape
of chivalry is pone." The late holder
of the office was a Lincolnshire magis
trate and an officer in the local militia;
the two previous ones were clergymen.
The office is not. as it has often been
stated, hereditary to the Itymoke fam
ily, but is attached to the lord of the
manor of Scrivclsby. which is held by
the ancient tenure known as grand
sergeant rv—i. e.. where one holds
lands of the sovereign by service which
he has to perform in person. The serv
ice by which Scrivclsby is held is thus
quoted by the New York World: "That
the lord thereof shall be the king's
The championship has no salary at
tached to it. for, though the Dymoke
family hold Scrivelshy on the feudal
tenure of performing this duty, they
have been owners of that manor for
upward of five hundred years, and they
obtained it, not by royal grant or out
of the public purse, hut by marriage
with an heiress, the last of the proud
line of Marmion, granddaughter of
I'hilip de Marmion, a name which re
calls memories of chivalry and of the
poetry of Shakespeare and Sir Walter
Scott. There is no record of the office
under the Saxon kings, hut, according
to the late Sir Bernard Burke, its du
ties were appended by William I. asan
honor to the old baronial house of
Marmyon, or Marmion, the ancient
owners of the manor of Scrivelshy.
This manor, together with the castle
of Tamworth, had been conferred,
soon after the Norman conquest, on
one Robert de Marmyon, lord of Fon
tenoy, in Normandy, on condition of
performing the office of champion at
the king's coronation.
The name of Dymoke is Welsh. The
Dytpokes, or Dymocks—for the name
is spelled both ways—claim a tradition
al descent from Tudor Trevor, lord of
Hereford and Wliittington. and founder
of the tribe of the Marches. The
chief himself had three sons, the sec
ond of whom, marrying a daughter of
the prince of North Wales, half a cen
tury before the Norman conquest, be
came the ancestor of one David ap
Madoc, who. in the Welsh tongue, was
styled colloquially Dai Madoc, the
word Dai being the short form of Da
vid. His son and heir was David ap
Dai Madoc, or David Dai Madoc, and
by the usual abridgement Dai Madoc
came in the course of time to be pro
nounced as Daiinoc or Damoc, the tran
sition from which to Dimoc or Dymoc,
and again from that to Dimos or Dy
moke is easy andoobvious.
The first, then, of the Dymoke fam
ily who fulfilled his office as champion
was Sir John Dymoke, knight, who
married Margaret Ludlow in the reign
of Edward 111., and was present at the
coronation of Richard 11. His claim
was disputed by Baldwin de Freville,
the lord of Tamworth castle, bnt after
deliberation it was found that the
right belonged to the manor of Scriv
elshy, as the caput baroniae or head
of the barouy of the Marmion family;
and, as it appeared that the late King
Edward lit and his son, Edward,
prince of Wales, known as the black
prince, had often been heard to say
that the office was held by Sir John
Dymoke, the question was settled in
his favor.
The Gentleman's Magazine for 1821
contains a picture of the royal
champion, Henry Dymoke, in the act
of riding on his white charger into
Westminster hall, and throwing
down the glove or gauntlet of defiance,
supported on either side by the duke
of Wellington and the marquis of
Anglesey, also on horseback, while
two heralds stand by on foot with
tabards and plumes. The performance
of the champion on this occasion is
thus described by Sir Walter Scott in a
letter to one of his friends:
"The champion's duty was per
formed, as of right, by young Dymoke,
a fine looking youth, but bearing per
haps a little too much the appear
ance of a maiden knight to be the
challenger of the world in the king's
behalf. He threw down his gauntlet,
however,'with becoming manhood, and
showed as much horsemanship as the
crowd of knights and squires around
him would permit to be exhibited. His
armor was in good taste, but his
shield was out of all propriety, being a
round rondaohe, or Highland target, a
defensive weapon which it would be
impossible to use on horseback, instead
of being a three-cornered or leather
shield, which in the time of the tilt
was suspended round the neck.
Pardon this antiquarian scruple,
which you may believe occurred to few
but myself. On the whole, this striking
part of the exhibition somewhat dis
appointed me, for 1 would have had
the champion less embarrassed by. his
assistants and at liberty to put his
horse on the grand pas, and yet the.
young lord of Scrivelsby looked and
behaved extremely well."
The last time the ceremony of the
challenge was carried out was at the
coronation of George IV., when
Henry Dymoke, the deputy of his
father, a clergyman, threw down the
gauntlet in Westminster hall. This
Henry Dymoke, soon after Queen Vic
toria's accession, was created a knight
as a recompense, it was said, for waiv
ing his claims to discharge the duties
of his office at the queen's coronation.
Sir Henry was succeeded by his
brother, Rev. John Dymoke, and he by
his son, Henry Lionel Dymoke, whom
Francis Seaman Dymoke, just de
ceased. succeeded in 1875. The pres
ent "champion" is his only son, also
tamed Francis Seaman Dymoke.
