united in marriage to Miss Wilhelmina

townsman Hon. II. A. Widemann. The
Cathedral doors were thrown open at 11
o'clock and a quarter of an hour later
every seat which was not reserved for
the relatives and friends of the two fam
ilies was occupied.
The chancel of the Cathedral was
most profusely decorated with choice
flowers, palms and evergreens. Between
the pillars were pretty hanging baskets,
while the pillars themselves were fes
tooned with different colored vines. On
either side of the chancel were hand
some pots of ferns and small palms. The
desks of the two front seats occupied by
the relatives of the contracting parties
were almost buried in choice and fra
At 11:30 o'clock the bridegroom, at
tended by his best man, Mr. H. M.
Whitney, Jr., and Messrs. C. J. Deering
and Carl Widemann, took up positions
near the altar. A few minutes later the
bride, leaning on her father's arm and
attended by Miss Bernice Parke, maid
of honor, and Misses Dora Dowsett and
Alvina Widemann, entered the Cathe
dral and passed up the center aisle to
the music of the Wedding March from
Lohengrin. The bride was dressed in a
handsome costume of white crepe
trimmed with lilacs. She also wore a
veil and diamond ornaments. The
bridesmaids wore dresses of white flan
nel trimmed with military braid. The

"Oh, yes," answered the fellow pertly, "but
I would like to have it directly from you that

"Ah," murmured the stalwart pastor as he
laid a heavy hand on the funny young man'i

The Needed Word of Praise.
Many a man ruins the peace of his house
hold forever by neglecting to speak the word
of praise which his hungry hearted wife has
yearned all day to hear, and bestowing it
upon some chance caller or stranger. The
man who tails to notice the careful toilet his
wife has made for his sake, and compliments
the good taste in dress exh.bited by some
neighbor, sows the seed of jealousy in a dis
Woman was made to be .loved, petted and
apprec iated by num. Whatever else she may
achieve in life, she feels herself cheated out of
her birthright unless this happiness has come
to her. She is jealous of whatever and who
ever may stand between her and that desired
joy. I have known two mothers who were
jealous of their own children. Unnatural
and terrible as this may seem, I felt the
greatest sympathy for both women. In each
case the husband utterly ignored the wife for
her offspring. She was a secondary consid
eration, neglected and rebuked where the
children were caressed and appreciated.

Concerning Karly Marriages.
It is, I think, an erroneous idea that early
marriages are a hindrance rather than a help
to success in life and the mental development
and happiness of the parties. That this i
sometimes the case is true; but I believe that
more young men, and girls too, have been
saved from ruin and wretchedness by an
early marriage than have been ruined hy it.

This afternoon the annual meeting of

Educational Society will be held. We
are under the impression that this
society has been in existence two years
or more, and as yet we have never seen
published a statement of its receipts
and expenditures. As the public sub
scribe to its funds it is due to them that
an annual financial statement be made.
This is what other charitable societies do.
The "Gazette" on Saturday morning
stated in an editorial note that the de
fendant in the conspiracy case was a
considerable owner of stock in the Pac
ific Commercial Advertiser. We beg
to state that the "Gazette'' is in error,
Mr. Macfarlane having tranferred
his stock several months ago. As to the
article which appeared in Friday's issue
of this paper on the Attorney General, it
gave general approval on all sides. It is
a pity the Government wind bag cannot
get nearer the truth.
A Poring ue e Woman Drowiieil.
The steamer Waialeale, which arrived
Sunday from Kauai, brought news of
Portuguese woman having been washed
off the rocks at Kilauea last Tuesday
morning and drowned. The woman was
fishing at the time and was accompanied
by one of her children, a six-year old
boy. The boy having become tired
waiting for his mother, returned to th
plantation and said nothing until an
older brother asked him where his
mother was. The child then said she
was in the water. Parties went down to
the place to look for the woman, but
could not find her. The next day a boat
cruised about looking for the body, but
without finding it. Up to the time of
the leaving of the Waialeale the remains
had not been recovered. The woman

HONOLULU SOCIAL CLUB.
Wirst Monthly Meeting at the Xew
M finer ny Hall.
Last evening the Honolulu Social Club,
a recently formed organization, gave its
first monthly party in the new hall in
the Mclnerny block. The staircase lead
ing from Fort street to the hall was very
tastily decorated with evergreens. At
the head of the stairs is a cloak room
fitted up with every convenience. The
hall itself is well adapted for social
gatherings, and will accommodate
quite a large number of people.
At one end was a raised platform which
was used by the members of Palmer's
orchestra who played for dancing. The
words "Welcome, Honolulu Social
Club," in green letters on a white ground
occupied a foremost position nearly over
The arrangements were as perfect as
they could be, and the various commit
tees did all in their power to make the
occasion a pleasant one for those present.
The committees were distinguished as
follows: Red ribbon, Arrangemonts ;
blue ribbon, Floor; white ribbon, Re
ception. The programme of dances was
an exceedingly neat one and contained
fourteen dances. The floor of the hall
is a nne one ior uancing. uuring tne
evening some excellent reiresnments
were served, and taken altogether the
affair was a brilliant success. The Hon
olu'u Social Club is to be highly con
gratulated upon its first party.
The Rest Pet of All.
The best pet of all is the little child old
enough to talk and to understand, with a
child's comprehension. The child that is a
pet is always promising to be a better pet,
because a more appreciative one. Its recep
tive and retentive mind is greedily gathering
ten thousand facts and then ten thousand
more, all with each added year the little one
not only fills a larger place in your affections,
but you are becoming more to the youngster,
to be treasured in fond regard through all the
years of mature life.
Every month, and week, and day is a step
toward manhood or womanhood, evincing
expanding intelligence and growing affec
tions, and cementing the bonds of friendship
and love between the little iet and the elder
persons who are nourishing its absorbing
mind and are guiding its otherwise uncertain
footsteps in the best path of life toward the
goal of thought, lov6 and action. Good
We all know the value of hot applications,
but the mode of making and the applying
differ in almost every house. An exchange
gives the following: 4 'Wring several thick
nesses of flannel out of cold water, so it will
not drip; place between two folds of paper,
and lay it upon a hot register or top of a
stove. Steam will generate and permeate
the whole cloth, and thus the required tem
perature will be obtained, in this way there
is no running long distances to a kitchen, no
burning of the hands, no uncomfortable
moisture in the bed and no raffied tempers.
A hot fomentation is beneficial in almost
every acute disease accompanied by severe
pain, and is often of great service in chronic
inflammations. It is more effectual and
more accessible than any other therapeutic
agent. By quick, prompt and thorough
use severe attacks of illness are often pre
vented." Herald of Health.
"Let Us Not Fret.
Sometimes my wife and I say on Sunday:
"Now let us agree that we will not say a
single cross word to any one this whole week.
Let us be studiously polite to each other and
to the children. Let us be very mindful of
the feelings of every person with whom we
may come into contact. Let us not fret nor
complain nor do anything that good, decent,
well behaved Christians should not do." And
if when the next Sunday comes, we have,
through the grace of God, kept this resolve,
it goes without saying that we have been
happy and the world has perhaps been made
a little better for our being in it. Zenas
Dane in Good Housekeeping.
Advice to Young Girls.
A word of advice to the young girls:
Never contract acquaintance with strange
young men unless they come in company
with those with whom you are well ac
quainted and in whom you place confidence.
Even then be on j'our guard, and see that
the proprieties of life are not exceeded.
