KOHALA KLWS. CHINA'S RETALIATION. happy hilu. rin Crcrlifinurttu. 9 THE PEOPLE STILL WAITING AND PRAYING FOR RAIN. CoDcsrta and Luaus. rreiUcbt Dole th. Cu.t of E. P. Low-Kohala to Hr a Tailor Shop, Eto. Koilila, Sept. 10, 1833 Kohala wants rain. Anything bbort cf a cloudburst will be acceptable. We c tiled for rain last week, and the print was hardly dry on the morning Advertiser when the sky clouded up and some slight dashes of rain fell Nature made an effort in the right direction, bat she did not follow it up. This is the eecond time we have voiced our need, and we do not want to have to 6peak again. It is a carious coincidence concern ing this drought that almost every preacher in the district has been tak ing a vacation. The Foreign cbnrch starts up agnin on Sunday and the moon changes on the tame day, and that combination i looked forward to hopefully. By last mail a modest request for th foreign mail was preferred, and our prayer was answered the Bamn day it went into print. WilJer S.S Clauilino brought in the nihil two full days before we had hoped for it. The postal authorities want to wake up. Our new pofrtmaster geueral has a good opportunity to show thecoun try what improvements are possible with the means at his disposal. A little calculation and foresight on the part of the postal authorities could make a big improvement on present tactics. The expense of hav iog our mail carried overland from Uamakna or Kona once iu a while would be trifling. When our regular local steamer cannot make connections with the foreign steamer, why not ntiliz the V. G Hall or one of the Ilamakua steamer? If we do not get the Australia' mail before "Wednesday look out for secession. The old club hall at Kapaau is to bo torn down, and a new ami better one will probably arise from the ruins. As a lust tribute to departing worth wo gave a farewell dunce on Friday night in the old hull. The evening turning out fine, one of the very largest uud most brilliant gatherings of late years responded to the invitation. Gay with flowers and foliage aud bunting, pulsing with the music of cornet aud violiu and guitar, vibrating with the ca dence of the light footed dancers, the Inst hours of the old house passed j .jv finely away. By 8 o'clock the ball room wa ablaze with livht, and the perfumed air whs tieii.bling with the sweet hounds of tuubic. Dance followed dance. Now "it wns the graceful glidings o the waltz and polka, now the iutriCHte mazes of the quart dance. "Soft eyes looked love to eyes that spake again, aud all went uir-ry as a mariiage bell." Young arid old were mtngled happily to gether, all vieing with one another in uddiiitf to tLe general hilarity. With midnight came a sumptuous collation under the Bopervi-ion of our fcccomolished club caterer, Mr. Terenuo Ke-ViO. Th-o, refreshed we returned to the hall, aud till tne daylight dtwi.ed we chased the golden hours with flying feet, amid the poetry f motion and concord of sweet sounds. The thanks of the community are due to those who conceived and sue ceasfully carried out tbe affair and especially to Mr. Fredenburg who came all the way from Waimea to take charge of the music. There was another large picnic on Tuesday, a pylvan pcene of enjoy ment, a vision of 'alpine hats, aud wood nymphs decorated with tro phies of leaf and vine, and sportive naiad- playing in the silvery wave. If you want a days unalloyed fun come to Kohala in September. The musical organzttion from Kona has been delighting Kohala audiences with their varied accom-pIL-Lmects. The warbling of oue of their members is something quite marvelou-s and their solo singer won golden opinions here. There was a great combined concert in the native cbnrch on Tuesday night, and a con cert by the Kona boys in the club ball on Thursday night. On Wed nesday afternoon there was a great InrtU attended by over a thousand people. Mr. Dole, president of the Ha waiian commonwealth, is resting from the cares of state in our midst. He is the guest of Mr. E P. Low. Mr. Sauzy, of the firm of T. II. Davie & Co., is in Kohala combin ing business and pleasure. It is rumored that a firm in Hono lulu intend starting a first class tailoring establishment in central Kohala. ?t will supply a long felt want. Ol course, handsome men look well in most anything; but on esthetic principles, we prefer a weli fittiDg suit. The Daily Advertiser is deliver ed by carriers for 50 cents a month. King up Telephones 88. Now is the time to subscribe. It Will Commence, It is Thought, if Congress Does Not Act. The communication recently re ceived by the president from Li Hung Chang, the Chinese viceroy, is taken by certain officials to mean that China will certainly retaliate against the United States in case congress at its next regular session fails to modify the Geary law so as to make it less oppressive to the Chinese residents of the United States. The viceroy said in his dis patch that no retaliatory measures would be instituted at present bv the Chinese government, and that American citizens in China will be fully protected until the assembling of congress in regular session. This is regarded as an implied threat that such protection will be re moved in the event of the failure of congress to enact the proposed remedial legislation in the interests of Chinese residing in the United States, and is so construed, eo it is said, at the state department. The statement alleged to have been made to Consul William Bowman at Tien Ttsin by Viceroy Li Hung Chang is practically the same as the communication received by the president from the viceroy. Am. Ex. The South Seas. A letter from Captain A. C. Walkup of the Hiram Bingham at Butaritari, pays: "It lacks only a few days since Hiram's anchor firt dropped on coral bottom. This is the sixty-third anchorage at ten different island., many of them at front doors of villages where a Bhip never anchors. The 1000 Gilbert shares (in Hiram Bingham stock) are all taken. I have made my second visit at three islands and find thit every four months is none too often to look at and stir up the work. I think next year's work will be encourag ing. Many of the fallen have agiin confessed their Saviour. One king discarded his second wife; another king his heathen games. After some of my addresses on tobacco and smoking, nearly the whole audience would arise to signify their intention to discard it. Praise the gospel's power! The prayer- song, 'JesUs pilot Hiram Bingham' is being answere 1." Ex. Here's a State of Things. Henry Labouchere gives this as the authorized dictionary of dis content : What is creation? A failure. What is life? A bore. What is man? A fraud. What is woman? Both a fraud and a bore. What is beauty? A deception. What is love? A disease. What is marriage? A mistake. What is a wife? A trial. What is a child? A nuisance. What is the devil? A fable. What is good? Hypocricy. What is evil? Detection. What is wisdom? Selfishness. What is happiness? A delusion. What is friendship? Humbug. What is genero-it) ? Imbecility. What is money? Everything. What is everything? Nothing. Were we, perhaps, not happier when we were monkeys? NEWS AND NOTES. Paper is made of iron.

Venice is built on eightv small slands, has nearlv four hundred bridges and is eighty mile? in cir cumference. Canals serve as streets and gondolas as carriages. Hargraves Jennings, in his work.

Francois de Merineu, 1666, wrote the name of Mississippi on tbe map as "Messipi ; Henuepin, 16S0, wrote it Meschonipi ; De Coxe, 169S, called it Mecbasepi.

While other districts oa this inland have been comp'aiuing of dry weather and con sequent hort crops Hilo has broken all previous records and harvested the largest crop ever grouted by it- ujiil.-'; the total output of sugar from WHinkea to U -kala, aggregating about 31500 tons, and fctill larger crops are estimated for next year, The weather ha3 certainly been favorable for the pat fifteen month?, plenty of un as well as rain; but the Migwr c mp inies have gradually in- crea-ed their ulants and orders fur frtilizr until now the available land within the limits of the planta tions (excepting Ltupaboehoe Suar Conp.-iny, whieli has only resumed planting during the past six months) i all in cultivation, and the stand of cano secured is trnlv remarkable for these old lands. The Hilo planter is wedded to his fertilizer and would no more think cf plautiu? a field without it3 use than he would of sowing his eeed-cane broadcast and expect results. With its use he can plant the same laud year after year and produce good crops from soil that va3 supposed to b exhausted ten years nro. lounger susrar dis tricts could learn some useful lessons in experience by using fertilizers be fore their lands are worn out. Our beautiful bay has assumed a mofo practical and business like ap pearance during the past few days. Un Sunday morumg the 3 I lust , the S. S.

Wh trut th superintendent of public works will coma again soon, if long ii?eled improvements follow his departure so quickly. A lunch was giveu at the foreign church pallors Tuesday noon by the ladies of the church in honor of the vi-iting pastors and their wives, which was well utteuded, and the bountiful supply of good thiugs dis posed uf in h manner which should have gratified the donators.

Honolulu, feept. 11, 1S33, 3431-2t SI 0r" Mrs. Sarah M. Black of Seneca, Mo., during the past two years has been affected with Neuralgia of the Head, Stomach and Womb, and writes: "My food did not seem to strengthen me at all and my appe tite was very variable. My face was yellovr, my head dull, and I had such pains in my left side. In the morning when I got up I would have a flow of mucus in the mouth, and a bad, bitter taste. Sometimes my breath became short, and I had such queer, tumbling, palpitating sensations around the heart. I ached all day under the shoulder blades, in the left side, and down the back of my limbs. It seemed to be worse in the wet, cold weather of Winter and Spring; and whenever the spells came on, my teet and lianas would turn cold, and I could get no sleep at all. I tried everywhere, and got no relief before using August Flower Then the change came. It has done me a wonderful deal of good during the time I have taken it and is work ing a complete cure. 0. G.
