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
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.
"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
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

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.
