(including postage) tf 50 Poyablfi Invariably in Advance I Honolulu's Telephone S3'8tein. The " telephone system of Honolulu ia very perfect as good as any place in the vorld, better . than in some. The car riages for hire are a sort of phaeton, with top extending over two seats, drawn by one horse. The smooth, level streets, macadamized with coral, enable ono horse to draw four passengers with ease at a good round gait. The fare is twenty-live cents for each passenger any where within the city limits a liberal district. The natives ore expert horsemen; they ride small sized, tough mustangs with Mexican saddles and lariat at the saddle bow, .at a furious pace. Necessarily they are the best of swimmers and boatmen. The whalers say they are excellent sea men, and, strange as it may appear, for those born in the tropics, withstand the cold of the Arctic seas. The native jolicemen are a line looking lot of fellows. They wear white linen caps and panta loons, and blue sack coats; with their swarthy complexion they present a natty appearance. Withal Honolulu is a quiet place for a city of 20,000 inhabitants composed of so many discordant ele ments. Foreigners dress according to individual taste, in suits of white, with straw or pitli East India hats; others wear somber black; all wear the thinnest of material. One may meet in the streets English, American, Japanese, Chinese, South Sea Islanders and Hawaiian jostl ing each other on the sidewalks. Busi ness closes at o o'clock. The sentries at the palace wear uniforms of white linen, with pith helmets. All natives are ad mitted to the grounds. "White men are not allowed to enter unless they have a pass from the proper authorities. Cor. Cleveland Leader. "What Fruits ltesemble. The cocoanut is in many respects like the human skull, although it closely re sembles the skull of the monkey. A sponge may be so held as to remind one 6f the unfleshed face of the skeleton, and the meat of an English walnut is almost the exact representation of the brain. Plums and black cherries resemble the human eyes; ahnonds and some other nuts resemble the diiferent varieties of the human nose, and an open oyster and its shell are a perfect image of the human ear. The shape of almost any man's body may be found in the various kind of mammoth pumpkins. The open hand may be discerned in the form assumed by scrub willows and growing celery. The German turnip and the egg plant resemble the human heart. There are other striking resemblances between hu man organs and certain vegetable forms. The forms of many mechanical contriv ances in common use may be traced back to the patterns furnished by nature. Thus, the hog suggested the plow; the butterfly, the ordinary hinge; the toad stool, the umbrella; the duck, the ship; the fungous growth on trees, the bracket. Any one desirous of proving the oneness of the earthly system wili find the re semblance in nature an amusing study, to say tiie least. New York Market Journal. 3Ir.. Emma I. K. X. Soutliwortli. I saw an author dear to many old folk, and some comparatively young ones, too, the other day at Yonkers. I rememler a time when I scarcely big ger than Puck pictured in Mr. Keppler's paper used to listen to the breathless servant girl as she read 4iThe Hidden Hand" late o' winter nights. The author I saw was Mrs. E. D. E. N. Southworth. She is a pleasant woman, dressed in a gown of palm leaf pattern, with a train. I l?lieve that she and Sylvanus Cobb still write interminable stories in The New York Ledger. She writes her novels in installments and gets $0,000 a year. She told me that one day when she started to mail a part of a thrilling tale she could not find the MS. Ilorror! It meant disappointment to the impatient readers, so" she rewrote -it with great labor. The day after she had sent the second copy off the missing pages were found forniing a tail to one of her nephew's kites! New York Star. A Left Handed Forgiveness. Julia And so you and Kate have made all up? Sarah Yes, we've made all up and are as good friends as ever. She kissed ino two or three times, and I kissed her; and when she kissed me I was mad, and wbni I had to kiss her I could have bitten ber.
