A pi talked of escaping. In trfct, in his bi'ter grief and anger.be hardly knew what he said. He was re moved to the raakai yard so called be cause near the sea where there were many lepers waiting to be sent to Molo kai. The Luna eet . two men to watch him, and threatened to handcuff him if he did not remain perfectly quiet. That was Thursday. During the Dext day, A pi remained quiet, in a kind of stupor. It was useless to try to comfort him. What was there to be done? What hope pointed out for one condemned to life long banishment in that drear island, where Death reigns tupreme, working ilt?nlly day by day on his victims, set ting a hideous brand on the living, and turturii'tf the dying by prolonged agony and suffering? UetMteu Friday night and Saturday morning, the Portuguese negro and the native both lepers who were on guard outside the door of Api's room, heard fiioi crying, and going to the Luna, they begged him to go and fetch the Sister. "I don't rare," said the latter, roughly; "let him die." Let me go, then," urged the negro. " Api is sick, and we ought to do something fcr him. Lend me the keys and let me go and fetch her." - The Luna refused, and went off to bed. Of course the others could do nothing without the keys of communication, and they sat down again. Soon Api became I quiet an.i l-ft nil moaning, so they hoped he bad gone to sleep. In tiir morning they waited in vain for him to open bis door and call for his breakfast. 'Perhaps be is tired, he was awake so late last night," said one. " 1 am going to wake him," said the na'ive guardian of the makai yard. '' Perhaps he is ill." "Let him sleep," said the other. " Let us go and as-k the Sister to come and see if he is sick." The negro left to go to the Dispensary ; the native opened the door softly to see if the white man was still sleeping. He was sleeping the last, long sleep, from which he awakened in eternity, his half-open eyes turned tc the door as it 'o look for the noiseless shadow which wnnld come to beckon him away 1 On ii i i'-e he wore the sad, weary expres :, J a hopeless outcast an outcast from bis family, from his home, and from the society in .which he had been brought up ; and outcast from the very church in which bis mother had led him to pray in those far-off days when he v?as as clean of body as innocent of soul. By his bedside were three bottles, the first containing his internal medicine, the second containing some French bon bons I had given him, the last was empt', but it bore the label " Tinct Osni ," and it was drained to the very last drop. We, m the hospital, wept for him remembering him with pity and regret, and felt that he mieht have been prevented from hurry ing his soul so rashly into the unknown. And yet the brother of that dead man was a member of the Board of Health who allowed the doctor to be maligned by the Luna with impunity, and suffered the doctor to leave the hospital, when his treatment was becoming more and more successful, rather than deprive the Luna of his office. Those first three months at Kalihi were months of incessant labor and diffi cult problems; sometimes when there were many lepers waiting to be exam ined or to be sent to Molokoi, we had more than sixty inmates, all requiring to be treated. Some had arms or legs covered with loathsome sores; some faces half eaten away by leprous ulcers ; scarcely a wholesome patch on their body ; and all these required daily dress ing. Many had to be attended to two or three times a day. One old man had a pulmonary disease, and had to be watched day and night, for he had had hemorrhages twice, and could hardly be vot to obey the doctor's order of keeping perfectly quiet. ai me name time, in the makai yard, there was an old Chinaman, emaciated and decrepit, who had evidently been a confirmed opium smoker. Whenever I left him he would lie on the floor and cry "Make" (die), "Make," while the Luna and some of the men teased him laughing at him, and threatening to cut off his pig tail, as sometimes in his rav ings he would tie it round his neck, as if he were going to hang himself. For three weary weeks the nights were spent in walking back and forth from the old native to Ah Kong, the Chinese; while in the rainy season the pools of water in the uneven ground were ankle deep. But by constant soothinc. a iudioinn administration of Chinese tobacco, weak tea, ana gradually diminishing does of pills, I had the satisfaction of seeing Ah nong unproved no less in outward ap pearance than in the condition of his mind. Indeed, at the last, he grow quite merry over trying to teach us to epeak Chinese, and correcting our pro nunciation and accent. He afterwards went to Molokai, where he led an even, tranquil life ; nor did he ever, I believe, return to bis opium smoking. Here I may say that the lew Chinese who came under my observation, were most docile, trusting, affectionate and grateful, as, indeed were all the natives and half whites, who were in or passed through the hospital. During the six months some one hun dred and two lepers were sent to Molo kai, and therefore only stayed with cs for a short time. But they were almost always most anxious to be treated by Doctor Lutz for the brief period of their stay, and were loud in their expressions of gratitude and affection when they went away. Indeed, those days of go ing to Molokai were the eadest it has ever been my lot to witness. For days beioretiano, the friends of those going, gathered round the gates, and the tall, double fence which shut the lewra from the outside world, wailing and weeping aif there were no comfort for them. When the moment came for parting, the poor beings clung to us. faint with ween ing, unable for the most part to utter a word of farewell, for the sobs that wrnno their breasts. They realized that thev were going to pass a bourn when will never return, nevermore look upon the faces that woresmiles to "cheer them : nevermore hear the voices which spoke wurusui jovb anu inenasnip to them; nevermore re-visit the home ot thpir childhood; nevermore clasn in tender embraco those whom thev loved mnrA than life itself. Ah ! since it is necessary, perhaps on acc- unt of their very recklessness, to segregate these poor creatures, why not have as the natives themselves are al ways petitioning an enclosure on evprv island, surrounded by a double fence if needs be, but where, at least, thpv fan look upon the faces of those thev lnvo and hear assurances of undying affection from lips that have told them over nnd over again the same old story of love? xut space would lail wt re I to toil rf all that took place during those sis event ful months. In that time some of the patients, formerly pronounced lepers, were cured; the conditio, of all was ameliorated, and hope sprang hinh in the hearts of these hitherto despairing people. Then came a time when, in eeveral instances, the doctor's wishes ami mine were put aside : some cf our patienU were made to work by the Luna in an utterly uiifit condition : one, in deed, who had had a strong f v-r was co thrown bark that he nearly lost hi life. Lastly, we heard from the patients that the Luna and the agent had be-n speak ing against the doctor and myself, trying to prejudice the people and do us harm. We complained to the Board of Health, as the matter became more serious; they seemed unwilling to take any steps in the matter. A native gentleman, representative of the people iu the Legis lative Asr-embly, took up the matter and brought it befoie the House. A com mittee from the House visited the hot-pi-tal three days, and took down volumin ous evidence which was printed in a re port. They found that the Luna was unworthy of his office, and should be immediately removed, as also the anient of the Board of Health. This was not done. The President of the Bo?-d cf Health was removed from his cfBoe For some unaccountable reason of their own, they upheld the Luna and the agent, and there was nui!i;:ig left but for tUeloctor and myself to reMgn. it being impossible to work anv longer under the then existing circumstances. And s , with an aching heart, we left the people, with all the more sorrow that their lives had been fco bright with hope bef re, as one of them paid in his speech before the committee of the Legislative Assembly, "There never has been such a doctor before in these islands; tiere never has been a woman who has cared so for the lepers." Tney had been successfully treated ; some partially, some entirely cured. Through the kindness of my" English and American friends they had clot lies for the only allowance of" the Board of Health in that hospital was a mattre s, blanket and, I think, one pillow tobacco, bed-linen,writiiii$-paper, stamps, everything, in fact, they needed, both those who staid with u, and those w ho left for Molokai, for they often came in without a change of clothes; and they told me they had no clothes given them till they have been at Molokai one vcar. And they were so loving, so trustful, so confiding, coming to ak for coun?el and consolation in everything, little aj well as great; we were as one happy family, e-King eacn to piease ana serve the other. And the " might have been " makes the reality all the more hard to bear. More " might have been " cured; more consoled in their suffenn's: snecifies for the different forms of the disease ''might have been" given to the world, and every good that "might have been" done, "might have" spread like the widening circles where a stone has been thrown into the sea; but weeping is of no avail; it is useless to crv out: Whv does bod let such things be? We can only " say as we go, Strarge to think by the way, Whatever there is to know That we shall know some day." The Editor of The Ladies' Journal takes great pleasure in Home tating that he hopes shortly to have tlie nriv ilege of printing a second article by Sister iwoc v-riruue. jdis arucie win tea m a graphit! manner " What It Is To Ce a Leper," and give an accurate insight into the life of the lepers, the treatment ot me nihease, how contagion is avoided, why leproEy is incurable, under what circumstances there is a possibility of hope in fact, the article will treat its subjf ct fuller than any other previously published. fc G.
