THE SCIENCE OP "OLD BOOTS. ricairologV' "A Swiss savant, Dr. Garxe, jealous of the success of palm istry, Xaa invented a new sci-nee, which he calls scarpology, by wliich he is able to decipher the character of people by a study of their old boots! It was a fact ot early observation with him that every pair of old boots bore the Impress of the wearer. "Dr. Garret first care was to pro cure from each of his friend and rel atives one or more pairs of old boots. Gradually he amassed the lluest col lection of cfuiussurc ever known. They were all neatly catalogued, and in most cases some particulars of the haracter of the original owner were known to the collector. When his shelves were quite full, the doctor set to work to classify his acquisitions. By arguing from the known to the unknown; by compar ing, deducing and contrasting, he at last thought himself able to lay down the broad outlines of a science to de termine whether the wearer of a par ticular pair of boots had climbed the steep and thorny way to Heaven or whether, recking not his own rede, he had trodden the primrose paths of dalliance. "lie has called his new science Scarpology, possibly from the Italian worti Scarpaccia, an old shoe, the di minutive of Scarpa, He claims for It that it Is quite as "exact" as phrenol ogy or chiromancy." All the Year Kound. In order that .Hawaii may be at the front, in scientific researches, some philanthropic sugar baron, or coffee, or pineapple, or'canaigre, millionaire, should endow an in stitution in which Scarpology may be taught, and in which curiosities in the way of boots should be col lected. It should, unquestionably, be under the superintendence of Prof. Brigham, who ha3 special qualifications for expounding any subject which involves "kicking." Boots have an inestimable value for that purpose, and no one is able to discourse to better advan tage, on the subject, than the learned professor, who, it is well known, spends most of his waking hours, in "kicking" at everybody. There should be collected, and placed in this museum, the pair of old boots, presented by Capt. Cook o Kamehameha I., the pair worn by Capt. Cook himself, when his earthly career, as a spurious Ha waiian god, was abruptly termina ted on Hawaii ; boots worn by the early missionaries, on landing here ; the boots of the kings of Ha waii ; those worn by the good gov ernor, Kekuauoa, which creaked all the way up the aisle of the Kawai ahao church ; those worn by the present government; and a full as sortment of the boots, in which Mr. Bush, and the Holomua, say the revolutionists are "standing and trembling." Of course, a separate ami large building would be needed for the multitudinous pairs of boots which the learned professor himself owns if he reserves a separate pair for each person he would like to kick in this community. He should, moreover, construct life size wooden iraajre?, like these in front of cigar eland, representing the most ob noxious persons, from the President downward?, and, on stated occa sion), he should set them out in his audience chamber, and with holy hatred draw on the appropriate boots, fiercely gyrate around the helpless images and kick them over. One day should be devoted to the Cabinet; another day to the clergy ; another to the editors, and on a special day he should set up a multitude of images representing all classes and conditions, and "lay them out" with wonderful gyrations and searching kicks of precieion and force, supplemented with the eweet and gentle language he uses about everybody. From the desk he may deliver impressive lectures on the origin and use of boots and their place in history, and enforce bis own holy mission to use boots, and kick, metaphori cally, everybody in sight. THE C0N3PIRACT NUISANCE. The perliminary trials of Bush Crick and Nawahi, for treasonab practices, distinctly show the situa tion of the Restorationists up to date. These men have been con trivinr misch'ef.' for months. K a 1 Leo in the hands of these men w - " ' . J. i .1.. n : l nas Deen perBiBienuy unug iuc native heart, by false reports, an keeping them in a state of unref There is no evidence, however, of any effective organization, which could resist for a moment, the forces of this Republic. It dis closes the fact that the Restoration ists are entirely without competeu leaders. The possession of guns by Bush and his friends does not mdi cate any serious trouble. There is no evidence that the natives have met together, in larger or smaller bodies, in the hope of being led by someone. The whole case only confirms, what level headed men have always believed, that the majority of the natives are indiffer ent, and those who are not, have relied entirely upon the interference of some foreign power, to restore the Throne. At the same time, the trial discloses the existence of a nuisance, which ought to be abated. At common' law, he is guilty of an offense who uses "threatening lan guage." He may never intend to do harm, and is, perhaps, too cow ardly to do it, but he disturbes the peace, in seditious taiK, one may never intend to. do harm to the State, but he disturbes the peace, and peace has great value. We have a large population which is not able to comprehend the situation, and it is made resiles by this foolish talk. The natives learn nothing from experience, and believe the most absurd rumors. These rumors are repeated, and reach the ears of the Asiatic popu lation, and disturb many of the white residents, who cannot judge of their value. There are also dis affected white men who have no in terest in the countrv, who would gladly see a political change on general principles." These men talk with impunity. In Chicago the government permitted the An archists to talk assassiuation until finally some cranks were found who tried it. Freedom of speech has its limitations, unwritten and written. No one wishes to put any hardship on these miserable talkers, who represent neither the wealth or the intelligence of the community, white, brown or native. But the Government should be sustained in its efforts to suppress this nuisance of unmeaning talk, just as it abates any of the miserable nuisances which disturb the peace of the community. Mr. Bush may have the "sacred right" of talking con spiracy. The community must have the sacred right of shutting him up if he does. Generosity Acknowledged, Mrs. Hyde has received from Mrs. W. G. Irwin $1000 for the Portu guese Benevolent Society, of which she is vice-President; and also 250 for the Free Kindergartens under the care of the "WomanV Board, of which she is President. Mrs. Irwin's style of Christmas gifts may well eet the fashion for other such instances of generosity and benevolecce. A Iloliday Freak. Christmas plays queer pranks. A ragged native urchin was noticed walking along the street yesterday with a new straw hat on his head, a cigarette in his mouth, a sword at his side, a bunch of firecrackers sticking from one pocket and a stick of candy out of another, while upon his stockingless feet calmly reposed a neat pair of white shoes. Xot That Kind of u Walker. Admiral Walker has at last walked off with the persimmon of his desire. His rivals in the navy had hoped to eee him walk the plank; but he is not that kind of a Walker. He per fert the Lighthouse Board. Phila delphia Record. -- The Daily Advertiser 75 centa a month. Jimly 3opie5 (December :S, :3g4. Just a few days more unti your son and heir will hang up his trousers instead of a stock ing as a receptacle for Santa Claus gifts. There is perhaps no myth so pleasant ; in the hearts of the youngsters as this one about the old fellow, the reindeers and the chimney and nothing in the life of the parent which justifies the little deceit as much as this. For this climate, however, the illustrations and the text of the legend should be changed; no kid, however backward he may be, can be persuaded that on the 24th of December an old patriarch goes about dressed in fur lined garments and snow shoes. The climate won't stand it and we can't understand why the children do. Why not have some one of our enterprising book deal ers get up something appro priate for the mid-Pacific Christmas. There's talent enough in town to make de signs for the illustrations arid plenty of poets to put the thing in rhyme. It would be a new departure from the con ventional fur robed old chap, and should be a go here and elsewhere. People from the States would buy it to show the tots at home what sort of a looking fellow Santa Claus is, in the Paradise of the Pacific. Our stock does not include many articles for children, but we are pretty well fixed for the middle aged and the old. We have some special bargains in the house keeping line and can supply you with as fine and serviceable an ice chest as can be made. We don't wish to imply that they are as at tractive in appearance as if they were patched up with mirrors and geegaws, but they are more serviceable. They are built on an ice sav ing principle, one that works ike a charm. The best quality of Cocoa Mats came to us on the "Rou- tenbeck." There's nothing more useful about the house than a good quality mat unless t is money. We find a Hart- mann Steel Mat indispensible n wet weather, and a Cocoa Mat a necessity when it does not rain. The two styles to gether form a useful combina- ion, that saves wear and tear of the carpets and matting.- In this new lot we have some of he cheap ones; they sell at 50 cents, and others of the better sort that are a trifle higher in price. Not a poor one in the lot, and none but will stand plenty of kicking about. Cut glass at half the price you are used to paying for it, ought to be inducement enough for you to buy. The pieces we have are not as broad as a church door, or as deep as a well, but they are great in quality. The pieces are suitable for every day use rather than on company nights.
