Under the Homestead Act, the Min
ister of Hhe Interior gives notice that :
"Twelve lots have been set apart in
Nuuanu Valley, in the district of Hono
lulu, Island of Oahu, opjKsite the ranch
of Mr. John Wood, for the purpose of
conveying the same to such persons as
may wish to acquire homesteads upon
"which to live."
The surveys can he examined at the
Interior Department. Any person of
of full age who wishes 11 lot must apply
in writing to the Minister of the Interior
and deposit $10. The terms iipon which
the said lands will be disposed Tf are
given in detail in the form of an agree
ment, copies of which can he seen at
the Interior Departmennt. The more
important points are as follows :
A The applicant agrees to juiy the ap
praised value within live years, during
which time no taxes will be levied on the
B He shall within one year build a
dwelling house upon the land, and begin
to occupy the same, and shall continue to
use the same as his residence for the re
mainder of the term of live years.
C He shall within two years enclose the
land with a substantial fence.
D He shall pay quarterly in advance a
sum representing the quarterly interest on
the purchase price at the rate of ten per
E Upon the fulfilment of all the con
ditions a Royal patent in fee will be
granted to the purchaser.
F The agreement is non -assignable and
the land cannot be sold until all conditions
are fulfilled and the lapse of five years.
G Failure to comply with any of the
conditions will work a forfeiture of the
HoNOKAA, Hawaii, Sept. 15th.
Hamakua is again quieted down, after
two months of anxiety. The elections
are over, and the results are beyond the
expectations of the most sanguine. The
votes stood as follows: W. A. Kinney,
583; J. K. Kaunamano, 164; giving
Kinney a majority oM19. This was one
of the most orderly and quiet elections
ever held in Hamakua not a dispute or
row during the entire day. Every pre
caution was taken by the Deputy Sheriff
and his assistants to put a stop to all
liquor traffic for the day.
3Ir. J. F. Brown and others are at
Ilonokaa .surveying Government land
fur homesteads. The natives appear to
be taking a lively interest in his work,
and applications are going in by the
dozen fur lots. .
. . IIilo, Hawaii, .Sept. 15th.
Election day at IIilo was a very quiet
jone. The number in town was the
the Court II 011 so vard there were a large
number of special police on hand to pre-
serve oruer, out mere was no occasion
to call on them. Notices had been
posted up for several days forbidding
the sale of liquor on that day and the
carrying of firearms. , Some one evident
ly in the interest of some one not of the
Reform party had cut the telephone
wires (two of them) ahout two miles
from IIilo, hut the ever active Richards
was there in a short time and had the
wires in order again. The police are in
vestigating the matter. Several car
toons appeared, one very striking by
our own artist. Nawahi and Commo
dore Geo. C. Beckley ran well. The
candidates were all serenaded at their
residences by the Catholic Mission
Band. The l'ortuguse who have voted
at this election seem to feel that they
can now have advantages that they
have never had before, and seemed to
appreciate the privileges of voting.
The brigantine Lurline, under com
mand of Mate Matson, sailed from IIilo
September 12th for San Francisco, with
004 tons sugar from Wainaku. Passen
gers, Dr. Thompson bl Kohala, Mrs. At
kins and daughter, Mrs. S. L. Coan,
Frank Smith, Mr. J. I). Blackmail, wife
and three sons.
There was a nice shock of earthquake
in IIilo at 1 :10 a. m. Monday. The old
crater is said to be booming.

MADE OF SNAKE SKIN.
Usetl for Diary Covers, Albums and Purses,
Scrap Books and Slippers.
New York Mail and Express.
In the window of a Spruce street leather
store, hangs the tanned skin of a boa con
trictor twelve feet long. All the markings
have been carefully preserved and the scales
retain their natural position.
"They are mostly used in the manufacture
of purses, diary covers and the like," said
the clerk in charge of the store to a reporter.
"Albums and scrap-book covers are also
made of snakeskin, and sometimes slippers
and even shoes. The great difficulty with
it, however, is that the scales soon lose thete-
nice appearance and get rough and furry.
A successful means has not yet been devised
of making them lay flat to the skin for any
"Is the trade in them extensive?" asked the
"Not to the present, but it promises to be
come an important article of trade in the
near future. Wnen it is discovered how
the scales can be made to retain the position
tney neia wnile the animal was alive, thev
will be in greater demand than even aligator
"What kind of snakes are mostly used?"
"The larger species, such as 'pythons, or
boas, but even the delicate skin of a frog can
be tanned. An opera glass covered with the
handsomely marked skin of a garter, or a
small water snake will soon become fashion
able. Card cases, small books ani little bed
room clocks are some of the articles in the
manufacture of which they are used. The
such things it takes a long time before the
scales begin to stand up. The upper portion
of slippers and shoes and even dressing-cases
are made from the larger snakes."
"What country supplies the most reptiles
for the purpose ?"
"Nearly all of them come from Africa, but
a good many are also obtained from Brazil
and other parts of South America. It is a
singular fact that the skins have to be taken
to France to be tanned. The industry has
not yet sufficiently developed to induce men
in this country to venture into it. Only a
few days ago I sold the skin of a boa sixteen
feet long to the proprietor of a Parisian mu
seum, who was not aware that we received
it from Paris only a few weeks before."
Women as Criminals.
Women are not as well constituted, phys
ically, or mentally, as men are for commit
ting crimes. They havo never elevated mur
der to the rar?k of a "fine art." A few have
succeeded as poisoners, and have acquired
reputations that have extended through all
countries and will probably live through all
time. Women have great advantages over
men in exercising the art of poisoning. It is
a principal part of their duty to prepare
f vod and drinks, to serve refreshments, and
to administer medicine to the sick. All
these employments afford excellent oppor
tunities for dealing out poisons.
Women, however, though graceful in
other respects, are very awkward In the em
ployment of cutting instruments and fire
arms. They are also likely to overdo every
thing they undertake. They fire too many
pistol balls into the body of a person they
wish to pass off for a suicide. They should
learn that one bullet carefully lodged in the
heart, lungs or brain is likely to settle any
thing but a very tough customer. Wasting
too much ammunition is likely to excite sus
picion. Female novices in the art of poisoning
rarely do a very fine job. Women are more
thorough-going than men, and are likely to
overdo everything they undertake until
they have had considerable experience.
Women have been known to administer an
Dunce of arsenic or a dram of prussic acid to
a person whose existence they desired to ter
minate. This rendered detection certain.
Again, womeu not only give too much
poison to produce the desired effect, and
shoot off too many charges from a revolver,
but they tell too many stories after they
women can commit murder as successfully
as men do, and escape conviction as skill-
fully, an impartial public will not be likely
to acknowledge the complete equality of the
London's Fire Department.
There are in London fifty -nine fire-engine
stations and COO firemen constantly em
ployed, besides coachmen and pilots. The
firemen are selected from seamen whose dis
charges pronounce them "very good" in
'character'' as well as in "seamanship and
An .Apprentice System.
The owner of a big Providence woolen
mill, invariably hires a new boy for a term
of three years at wasres of $3, $5, and $6 pro
gressively per week; but at the end of each
year he makes a gift of $50 to every lad who
has made satisfactory advancement in the
trade. He thinks this is the best form of an
Growth of the Shoe Trade.
Within two 3'ears the shoe industry has
taken a rapid and remarkable development
in New Hampshire. Ten factories have been
established and over $1,000,000 invested.
