PARADISE 0G THE PACIFIC.
The first number of an eminently use
ful monthly publication under this name
by the steamship Australia fo: the Coast.
A notice appeared in these columns
some few months since, describing its
general scope and design, and now that
the paper itself is before us we can cor
dially congratulate the proprietary, to
gether with the business manager, Mr.
J. J. Williams, upon the excellent man
ner in which the original intentions
have been carried out.
One of the most prominent wants of
mankind in this age of travel is a ready
means of gaining reliable information
respecting a country one intends to visit.
vvnatever a man s purpose in going
abroad business or pleasuie he wants
to know beforehand what land is best
adapted to that purpose. There is the
general newspaper press, it is true ; but
as a rule that does not tell him all he
needs. It is devoted to the interests of
local residents, wno, wim comparatively
few exceptions, constitute its readers.
It seldom publishes standard knowledge
about the place, simply because such
knowledge, to the great majority of its
readers, would be nothing new.
The "Paradise of the Pacific" steps in
where the general newspaper fails. The
intending visitor may learn from it just
what he will find when he gets here.
1 1 "J A- 1 "ll. 1 ? 1
The points of interest, the means cf
reaching them, the lucious fruits that
grow here, the kind of people that live
here and various things are communi
cated in 'readable form in the course of
eieht Dasres. a prominent feature of
which is a well executed print of the
city of Honolulu, with its majestic back
ground of mountain ranges, taken from
the deck of a vessel outside the reef.
The paper will be found extremely use
ful to foreigners who de. ire to know
more about the Hawaiian Islands, and
we believe it to be well calculated to pro
mote local commerce. As such it is de
serving of liberal support.
A Leper Attempts Suicide.
Word was received in this city yester
day that a Chinaman, a leper, had com
mitted suicide at Ewa. It appears he
was under arrest for being a leper and
after being taken into a house he asked
his captor to allow him to retire to an
other room. This was done and a little
later oni he was found with his throat
cut and apparently dead. Dr. Emerson,
President of the Board of Health, who
was notified at once sent Dr. Wood
to the spot. The latter who was quite
sick with fever of course expected the
man was dead and did not take anything
with him. Wrhen he arrived at Ewa he
found the Chinamen still living. He
returned quickly to town and after re
porting was compelled to go to bed. Dr.
Kodgers went down and the latest from
him is that it is impossible for the man
to live. His name is Ah Chin and he
has leprosy of the tubercular form of the

The prisoner was defended by Paul

a really pleasant one to look at. He oc
cupied a seat next to his counsel, and
appeared to take a close interest in the

Intelligence was received at New
York December 2Gth at the Yacht Club,
through private correspondence, that a

yacht is to be of cutter build, between
85 and 90 feet long on the keel. The

Sowing Seed on Sunday.
As the afternoon begins to lengthen on
Sundays, four figures clad in long black
gowns may be seen pacing to and fro
along the entrance of the city hall. One
Is tall and slim and greatly resembles
James G. Blaine in features. Another is
short and stout. The other two are of
medium size. The tall one is Mr. Kim
ball, the noted friend of the poor.
One by one persons drop out of the pro
cession across the park and stop. Soon
100 gather. The little man steps out,
and, opening a Bible, reads a verse and
then begins to talk. As his voice rolls
over the park others come in to hear, stop
a moment and pass on. Then the other
two men in black gowns in succession
speak with great earnestness. The
core of the audience stays, the
first half dozen rows remain intact; but
the onter edge is a constantly shifting
line, one dropping out, with a laugh, per
haps, or a serious countenance, while an
other steps in and takes his place. Then
Mr. Kimball steps forward and, with a
Bible in his left hand, pours out entreaty,
warning, exhortation, argument. His
voice strikes the gray front of the post
office and eomes echoing back. It sounds
far over in Park row, and people turn to
see what is going on. It arrests the steps
of persons hurrying along Broadway.
Some glance over at the black gowns and
hurry on. Others walk over and stand
respectfully and listen. The speaker be
comes more deeply interested, and strikes
his hands together with a resounding slap.
He grows excited, and catching his high
hat by the brim, sweeps it from his head
in a wide circle, and then replaces it. He
talks with great earnestness, and the
crowd listen as though they believed in
Tlie services end. The black gowns
silently disappear. The crowd melts away
in the great city. If seed has been sown
fruit will be gathered in tenement houses
and mansions, in slums and in fashionable
quarters of the town, for all have been rep
resented in the crowd before the city
hall. New York Sun.
Criticism of 91. Pasteur.
A' refreshing dose of common sense con
cerning the hydrophobia bugbear is to be
found in Dr. Spitzka's article in The
Forum. All timid and imaginative people
ought to read his conclusions. He states
with careful coolness and accuracy the re
sults of M. Pasteur's experiments. It is
a record which to an unprejudiced reader
would seem to present the French biolo
gist in the light of a crazy quack rather
than in that of a practical man of science.
The end of Dr. Spitzka's paper is well
worth quoting: "The moral management
of persons bitten by suspicious dogs is a
most important feature. A number of
cases are on record in which, patients suf
fering from the most agonizing symptoms
of 'rabies' recovered cn hearing that the
dog that bit them was alive and well.
On eliminating the cases of spurious and
improperly, designated rabies from the
mortuary tables the number of real cases
will be found so small that the entire
subject of the prevention and treatment
of rabies in man will seem an insignifi
cant problem as compared with that re
lating to the part borne by domestic ani
mals in conveying the contagion of
measles, diptheria and scarlet fever, the
deaths from which diseases in any given
day exceeded a hundredfold a whole year's
mortality through rabies." New York
Girls In a Factory.
I've been employing girls in my factory
for six years, and I can emphatically say
that I like them much better than men.
They are employed in every department
of the business, and it is rarely necessary
to discharge any of them. I have never
had to discharge a stenographer or type
writer except fcr inability to read her
own notes, and I've occasionally encoun
tered one just graduated by a college who
couldn't do this. In the factory the girls
are discharged for only two reasons.
Now and then one is found who is incor
rigibly lazy, and she is dismissed. Again,
some of them can't be cured of talking,
and if they don't heed remonstrance they
are paid and sent away. Gossiping is the
greatest trouble that T, and I imagine all
others wTho employ a large number of girls
and women, meet in managing them.
They will talk and nothing under the sun
will prevent it, even though the rules
p.gainst chattering on subjects other than
those connected with the business stare
them directly in the face. That is the
principal fault I have found, and it leads
sometimes to the discharge of some good
workwoman; it never produces half the
evil consequences that the bad habits of
male workmen do. Globe-Democrat.
A White Hawk.
Albinos, whether bird, beast, or other
creature, are very seldom seen. A bird
totally different in color from that of its
own species is a curiosity which one may
chance to see once in a life time. An
albino of any class of beings is always a
novelty. A snow white owl of the com
mon species was an object much soucrht
after by the sportsmen of a near region a
few winters ago. The rare bird, how
ever, was never captured. A trapper of
this locality captured a beautiful white
specimen of mink a year or two ago. This
writer has seen some nearly white ducks
among the various classes of wild ducks,
but of all the albinos observed the pret
tiest was a white turtle dove, which re
mained near us for several weeks during
the summer of 1884. It was indeed a very
rare sight. Quite recently another true
specimen of this freak of nature Ave call
albino was observed by the writer. It
belonged to that order of hawks termed
the hen harrier, and its uniform was of
pale, whiteness. Alexandria (Mo.) Cor.
A Hint to the Barber.
A suggestion has been made that bar
bers put their razors in a weak solution of
carbolic acid after shaving each customer
and thus prevent the danger of infecting
them with some dread disease, barber's
itch, etc. This idea is an exceedingly
good one, and ought to be followed. Let
them rinse out their mugs and brushes
which are in common use with the same
solution. The expense is a mere nothing
and the plan entails little or no extra
labor. Boston Herald.
The Tooting of Locomotives.
A mechanical expert given to curious
investigation estimates that the tooting of
locomotives on the New York, New Haven
and Hartford railroad, in an ordinary
day's run, involves a waste of steam re
quiring the consumption of 280 pounds of
coal to renew. He estimates the whis
tling expenses of that particular railway at
15,000 a year. San Francisco Chronicle.
On Lookout Mountain.
.George Bancroft, the venerable histo
rian, visited Lookout mountain the other

eyes ever saw. In all his travels he had
never seen any scene to exceed its sublime
