Sorae three or four months ago a fund was subscribed by a number of the lead ing business firms of this city for the purpose of sending an agent to California to make known to the tourist classes the ahirements of the Hawaiian Islands. These firms responed liberally and an .x agent was duly engaged and dispatched to the Coast, but results have been looked for in vain. The onlv letter re ceived from the agent by those in charge of the scheme here was one ask ing i'oi an -increase of salarv, but not a ' word as to how he was progressing. By the last mail a letter was received from a member of the firm in San Fran cisco entrusted with the disbursement of this fund, stating that the agent had up to the present time been unsuccessful in carrying out the object for which he hud been engaged, and advising that, unless some practical results were forthcoming within the ensuing month, all further re mittances on this account be discon tinued. Those having charge of the fund in Honolulu, acting on this letter, at once stopped any further collections for this agent, and he will be duly noti fied of this action. The fundamental object of this move ment that of attracting tourist travel to these shores is a very desirable one, but at the same time one in which it is possible to waste a vast amount of money. "Judicious advertising is the kejstone of success" in any great under taking; but if the advertising be not judicious it is worse than useless. Now, another means has 1 een a dopted of com passing the same end. We refer to the publication of the "Paradise of the Pa cific." The first number of this paper has already formed the subject of a notice in these columns, and if succeed ing issues maintain th high standard of this one we have no doubt the thing will be well worked up. An edition of over three thousand conies was sent away to the Coast and also to the Colonies. The managers make promises for the future which we knew they will keep provided they receive the support of the business firms in the city. The "Paradise of the Pacific" is just what has been long wanted, and it fills the bill exactly. The first number was a credit to those having it in charge and we feel certain that our business firms will contribute liberally to its support in the future. It may be mentioned while on this subject that Mr. John D. Sprockets has engaged Professor Sydney Dickenson, who recently lectured here, to lecture on the Islands in all the principal hotels in southern California. So it will be seen that the beauties of this insular realm are in a fair way of becoming familiar to th minds of many Ameriians and others. "Tlie Planters'' Jlonthly. This publication will this 3-ear be issued by the Gazette Company., The subscription has been reduced to 2 50. Such a publication ought to be main tained here, and every person who is. directly or indirectly interested in the great industry of this countrv ought to subscribe for a com. i'WiV:v:Tni4:iyi! nvi&ibrir ' c'Kair.s art'ev--' ii?rs ranujn; exactly;, f laaiso ti.u .. ..." ; . .... . . . ... .... w-- :.. 1 1 .. , .

From the latest San Francisco paper we quote tbe following : The local mar ket for refined presents a good tone and steady demand. Overland shipments for December on the S. P. Co.'s lines were light, aggregating 1,570,540 pounds. The total shipments by this route for 1SS7 were 54,542,600 pounds, against 103,707,000 pounds for 1830. During the spring of 1SS7 there were considera ble shipments of refined sugar east via the Canadian Pacific, but including these the total of this movement for that year was below that of 1SS0. The New York market for refined is reported firm, with an advance during the week of LsC on white grades. Latest quotations are as follows : New York, January 12. Sugar Re fined,crushed and cut loaf , 3c ; cube, 7c ; dry granulated, 7f8c; extra yellow C, 5 15-10c. Raws Cuban centrifugal, !b test, 0V2'c; beet sugar (London quota tion), 15s Od, January 10s. In the House of Representatives, Washington, January 11th, Millikin, of Maine, introduced a bill to repeal all in ternal revenue taxation, and to admit free of duty sugars imported from coun tries which do not lay an export duty on such sugar. This provision is not to apply to sugars imported in vessels other than those of the exporting coun try and the United States or to sugars imported from countries refusing to hire United States vessels the same treat ment in regard to port and other charges which is granted to vessels of such country in American ports. There shall be paid out of the Treasury to American producers of sugar a sum equal to the present rate of duty on that product, the sum to be paid each producer to be as certained through the internal revenue and customs olficials. The New York "Commercial Bulle tin" of January 0th, reports sales about two weeks since of 30,018 bags of Ha waiian sugars on the basis of 4jgc of SO test to a Philadelphia buyer, which has since arrived, and also 75,474 bags extra superior Manila at 5c, ex ship. A Contradiction. The following appeared in the San Francisco "Examiner" of January 12th : Mr. Bendell of Tillman & Bendell, a large stockholder in the American Sugar Refi nery, says that E. L. G. Steele is not going to Europe for tbe purpose of making arrangements so that this re finery may produce beet sugar, and that his study of the beet-sugar industry on his trip will simply be that of an indi vidual. " He said that it would be sui cidal for the American Company to en gage in the beet-sugar business or pro mote it, as it is composed principally of Hawaiian planters, and to start beet sugar factories in this State would re sult only in hurting their business on the Islands. One of the reports flying about is that a pool is to be formed between Spreck els and the American Refinery for the purpose of still further advancing the price of sugar. The truth of it is denied. A Remedy lor .Smallpox. An effectual remedy for smallpox is said t have been found by a surgeon of the British army in India. The mode of treatment, is as follows : When the pre ceding fever is at its height, and just be fore the eruption appears, the chest is rubbed with croton oil and tartaric oint ment. This causes the whole of the eruption to appear on that part of the body, to the relief of the rest. It also secures a full and complete eruption, and thus prevents the disease from at tacking the internal organs. This is now the established mode of treatment in the English army in India, and is re garded as a perfect cure. Cure for a Bad Habit. To prevent cows from jumping-, says Mr. J. M. Stanbrough, cut the lower eye-lashes off close and turn your cow loose, and see it she will attempt to jump. I have had some little experi ence; it seems that Jong hair immedi ately above and below the eye regulates the sight, hence with the lower lashes cut close, a low fence looks high, and vice versa with the upper ones cut close, a high fence looks low. There is an old adage that good fences make good stock, and good stock make good neighbors, and the reverse, bad fences mcke bad stock, and bad stock bad neighbors. Farm, Field and Stockman. Washington Colored Society. A curious development has been noticed of late in the colored society of Washing ton. There are degrees, and quite exclu sive ones, among the negro race, the nearly white, wealthy and educated having very little to do with the less favored. Colored people own some of the best real estate on the fashionable avenues, and several col ored men have built up handsome fortunes as money lenders, proving themselves as shrewd and businesslike as the white cap italists. Wealthy colored society has of late taken to horseback riding and tri cycling. It is getting- to be a common thing to see colored ladies out riding in the sunset hour, which all fashionable Washington devotes to riding and driving. Some ride on horseback well, and if well veiled are quite likely to turn the heads of passing observers. X. Y. Sun. Journalism in Bulgaria. A correspondent of The Xovoe Vremya, of St. Petersburg, sayg that in Bulgaria a journal is published in almost every town and village where there is a Drintinpr i. irian gazettes : inra tlie liberation tho 'i irtf '",1VC' f - .vung .jvi reviews which hate appeared itrrhe course of tbi rrvieTT. nt.V- tv,.. m.ijeiily r?f which, have totally disau Teared: XTv? V.ui: TniuitK. - - w m k'vai 1 The Dyak as a Climber. The Hill Dyaks of Borneo are expert climbers. Mr Hornaby. wliile collect ing specimens of nattrral history, saw a Dyak ascend a large tapang tree, five feet in diameter at the base, straight a3 a ship's mast, and without the smallest limb or knot for 120 feet up. The man went up the tree to secure a bees' nest hanging from the under side of the lowest limb. The nest was simply a large, naked, triangular piece of wliite comb. A Dyak -ladder" had been put up the previous year, and reached from the ground to the branches. It consisted of seven twenty foot bamboo poles held al most end to end alongside the trunk by sharp pegs driven Into the soft wood about two feet apart. The pegs were driven first on one side of the poles and then on the other, and t them the bamboos were lashed by rat tans, which held them firmly about eight inches from the tree. These pegs served as the rungs of the ladder. The builder must have ljeen a bold man, with nerves of steel. He was obliged to let the ends of the poles over lap a few feet in order to build the ladder with safety to himself. The completion of the ladder was most difficult. Clinging to the slight bamboo pole, 100 feet fioin the ground, he hauled up the last Ijamboo, twenty feet long, drove in the ieg, lashed the lower end of the pole to it, and then ascended that shaking bamboo to fasten it at the top. Hie Dyak honey hunter fastened to Ids lck a Iiasket to receive the honey. Mak ing up Ids torchwood, with which to smoke the bees out of the nest and away from himself, he ignited it, slung it by a cord from his neck, so that it would hang below his feet, and smarted up the slender ladder." Hand and foot he went up, peg after .peg, with a nonchalant ease which would have done credit to the most daring of sailors. Even that sailor would have been pardoned if he was a little shaky, while climbing a tall factory chimney by the lightning rod. On reaching the lower limb, 123 feet from the ground, he took his torch in one hand, waved it to and fro. until it smoked freely, and then crawled out along the bare branch until he was in reach of the coveted nest. Examining it first on one side, and then on the other, he shouted down as cheer fidly as if his climb had been nothing, "No honey!" Leaving the comb untouched, he de scended, with a smile, and reached the ground without the least tremor. Youth's Companion. The I-ick Telescope. What the Lick telescope will do will depend on men who have the handling of it. It will not make discoveries of itself. All that can be said of it is that it will place in the hands of painstaking com petent observers the best means now in existence of scanning the heavens. If they do not turn the means to account it will not be the fault of the telescope. In times past some small telescopes have made more important discoveries than stand to the credit tof some of the large telescopes of our day. But this is not Ije cause the small instruments were better, but because in proportion to the progress of exploration the unexplored area of the heavens naturally diminishes. There is less to be discovered now than there was in the time 01 the elder Herschel. Nor i3 it logical to deride large tele scopes l)ecause Lord Rosse's great instru ment has added little to its early nebular discovery. His telescope is powerful, but it is not exact or accurate, and every observer knows that exactness and pre cision in a telescope are even more im portant tlian power. Professor Da idson says that the Lick telescope will unveil stars of one degree fainter magnitude than can be detected by the instruments now in use. This would le no small gain. A correspondingly increased power ought to add to our knowledge of Mars, wliich is the planet of most immtliate interest to observers on this globe. San Fran cisco Call. Finney's Valuable Find. Louis Blanding says the generally ac cepted statement that the largest nugget ever found in California was worth a little more than $21,000 is an erroneous one. He says that J. J. Finney, "Old Virginia," foimd a piece of gold about six miles from Downieville, Sierra county, on Aug. 21, 18GG, that weighed 5,000 ounces. The gold of that vicinity was worth $18 per ounce, wliich woidd make the value of the nugget $90,000. This would make the Finney nugget the largest piece of pure gold ever discovered, so far as accounts go. Heretofore the Austra lian nugget, found in the Ballarat gold fields, has been considered the largest. It was- valued at $00,000. Finney, or "Old Virginia," as he was familiarly called in those days, afterward went to Washoe when the great silver discoveries were made there, and from him the town of Virginia City took its name. The man who discovered the largest nugget in California and gave his name to the rich est mining camp in the world died in ex treme poverty. Grass Valley Union. A Discreet Daughter of the Family. One of Detroit's best known evangelical ministers has a half interest in a 4-year-old daughter. The other day she broke over the traces of discipline and her mother sent her into a closet, with the injunction to tell God all about what a naughty little girl she had been. xlt the expiration of her penance hour she came forth- very qiuetly, as if her discipline had had a wholesome effect. 4 Well, little daughter," said the mother, "did you tell God all about it?." "No, mamma," was the reply; "I des didn't do it, 'tause I fought my papa wouldn't like to let it det out "of the family." Detroit Free Press. Injury to One's Own Trade.
