"Alwato," the Universal Language.
New York Letter.
Stephen Pearl Andrews is a man whom
his enemies call a fool, whom his friends
call a prophet and pantarch, and whom a
great body of the unclassified allude to by
the generic ?vmc of ' crank. " He .un
conventional. He calls himself reformer
and revolutionist. I dropped in on him
the other day at his study on Thirty-fourth
itreet. A woman, pen in hand, was sitting
down on either side of him, writing down
his thoughts as uttered. I knew it was
Alwato, the universal language." I in
quired about Its progress.
" We are making a dictionary, " he said.
"The new language will be much shorter
than any existing tongue about twice as
short, I should say. It is founded on my
discovery that every vocal sound meant
something not arbitrarily, but intrinsic
ally. Every vowel and consonant has itd
analogue in nature. Existent languages
are a clumsy and unscientific effort to get
at this. Show me a thing and I will give
you a natural name for it so of a thought,
feeling, or what not Vocal sounds have
a .natural meaning in speech, just as they
have In music. "
"How many words will the new lan
guage have in it? " .
"Millions. That Is, there will be cer
tain fundamental bases of speech ex
plained, and from these every speaker will
make whatever new words he needs, and
these will be at once understood by alJ
bearers. Every word will be only a com
pound of well known meanings. Do you
understand T"
Kound the World.
The Current.
There has returned to St. Paul an hon
ored citizen, Judge Flandrau, who ha$
been round the world ; and in his recital
to The Pioneer Press lie has said more in
half a column than most authors havo
been able to squeeze into a whole volume
of travels. Canton surprised him; it ha3
1,000,000 people. He saw CoL Mosby,
the ex-Canfederate, at Hong Kong, and
Arabi Bey at Colombo, Ceylon Cairo
is the most cosmopolitan city in the world;
the mosque of Mehemet AH is the finest
building the judge ever looked upon. lie
saw an ostrich ranch with several thou
sand birds; the eggs are hatched by steam.
All Egypt is in the hands of the British,
just as much as India. Uome is having a
great building boom; it reminds the judge
of a western town; money could be made
there by a western real-estate speculator.
Vienna is us handsome as Chicago, and as
full of life. Blarney castle is the finrst
ruin the judge saw. He was gone just six
months, the exact length of time he de
sired to spend, and his opinion of the
earth has not been lessened because he
could so easily girdle, it with railroad imd
steamship tickets.
I'russlaii Lt'tter-JJo.xe.
San Francisco Chronicle.
A newly patented method for emptying
letter-boxes has been adopted by the Prus
sian postmaster general, Dr. Stenhan.
The letters and packages are taken from
the boxes in such a way as to render it
absolutely impossible for the official to
handle the postal matter. Thistinvention
will not only do away with letters being
tampered with, but will also control the
carrier both as to time and the thorough
emptying of the box.
Carlyle 011 the X'lano.
London Truth.
I recommend the following passage in
Carlyle's Life, " to those young pests who,
without a real notion of music, make the
air around them hideous by their everlast
ing strumming on a piano: 44 The miserable
young woman in the next house to me
spends all her young bright days, not in
learning to darn stockings, sew shirts,
bake pastry, or any art, mystery or busi
ness that will profit herself or others; not
even in amusing herself or skipping on
the grass plots with laughter of her mates,
but simply and solely in raging from dawn
to dark, to night and midnight, on a
hapless piano, which it is evident she will
never in this world render more musical
than a pair of barn clappers! The miser
able young female!"
Krick of Silica.
Exchange.
It is said that the sand used in the man
ufacture of mirrors is now used by a
Paris company to make white bricks and
blocks, said not to be injured by frost,
rain, etc., and to be verj- light, the specific
gravity being only 1.30 to 1.83 of clay
bricks. The sand is first strongly
pressed by hydraulic power, and then
baked in ovens at a very high tempera
ture. The bricks are almost pure silica,
A Novel Enterprise in London.
A novel exhibition is to be opened in
London in Ma3 1S80, its object being the
representation of American life for the
benefit of Englishmen who have never
crossed the Atlantic ocean. It is proposed
to have a complete display of all the pro
ducts of the United States, manufactured
and natural, and an immense panorama is
to be provided for the presentation of
American scenerv.
Generous to a Faun.
You may talk as much as you please, w
remarked the irascible man; "but let me
tell you that I consider your arguments as
well as yourself beneath my notice. I
don't give you so much as a thought. " "I
hope not, " was the rc-sp-ons?; " I wouldn't
have you bankrupt yoarth' on my ac
count. "

The Koyal Hawaiian Hotel is one of the leading architecture

large area affords ample room for a lawn and beautiful walks, which

modations for 200 guests. The basement of the Hotel contains the
finest billiard hall in the city; also, a first-class bar, well stocked with
fine wines and liquors.
The main entrance is on the second floor, to the right of which ar
the elegantly furnished parlors. A broad passage-way leads fromithe
main hall to the dining-room. These apartments open on to broad
verandas, where a magnificent view of the Xuuanu Mountains may bo
seen through the wealth of tropical foliage that surround the
balconies.
The fare dispensed is the best the market affords, and is first-class
in all respects. Hotel and cottages are supplied with pure water from
an artesian well on the premises. The Clerk's office is furnished with
the Telephone, by which communication is had with the leading busi
ness firms of the city.
