MORNING BATH IN A SHARK POOL
A Week Spent at Luvaka Not Bad
ly Put In Picturesque
Scenery.
When I awoke on the mcrning of
January 23d, I had to rub my eyes
several times before I could satisfy
myself as to my exact position on the
surface of this sphere. I had some
vague notion of having been in a
storm at sea, and when my wits be
came sufficiently clear I found myself
in the house of the chief or buli of
Lavoni, a village in the center of the
beautiful Island of Ovalau. The rain
was coming down in torrents and the
wind was howling dismally around the
house. Looking through the mosquisto
curtain, I could make out on the floor
the prone form of the buli who had
completely enveloped himself in a
white sheet. Away in the far corner of
the building two men were squatting
down talking together in very low
tones, whilst a few young Fijian brats
lay sleeping in all attitudes on the
matted floor. A dusky stillness pre
vailed as the doors were not yet open
ed, and I felt almost inclined to go
back to dreamland again, when I sud-
denly reflected tnat tnere was a gooa
bathing-pool in the river hard-by and
the rain-storm having passed, in a few
i
minutes I was on its banks and enjoy-
ing the luxury of a morning plunge,
Whiist T wa lazilv floating about ad-
it . ... -
miring the luxuriance of the vegeta-
' ' - 1 -
tion that lined the stream on either
side, the brake of bamboos, the tree

rain, tne tan tree ueany wmieu

with creepers, and the slender areca
palm that leaned slightly over the
water, I observed the chief watching
bank. His "Saandra Saka" or "Good
morning, sir," did not sound as pretty
as the Hawaiian "Aloha," and I was
on the point of wishing that I could
transport the stream and its pictures
que vale to the neighborhood of Puna-
luu when he very quietly remarked
that sometimes a kind of shark found
its way into the bathing-pool. My
ideas as to upsetting the arrangement
of the- universe quickly vanished and
I scrambled out to a certain extent
in a hurry. On returning to the house,
I had no sooner adopted the Fijian
attitude of lying on one's stomach on
thp mat and staring: at a vacuum
when in stalked the female members
of the establishment, bringing hot
steaming edibles of various sorts; one
had a dish of breadfruit, another of
the "tivoli" or wild yam; a third
brought in a plate of fish and large
prawns, whilst the fourth bore a kettle
full of sort of fish broth. Then there
were bananas, and a pine-apple, and
the fruits of the Dawa which are some-
thing like those of the Chinese litchi.
T" e Fijian in fact does not fare badly.
The soil begrudges him nothing and
in the forests they find at hand fruits
and wild yams in abundance. But I
am digressing. The breakfast is fin
ished, and the chief's marama (i. e.
wife) who has been sitting at a dis
tance attentively watching my perfor
mance advances towards me with a
small basin of Fijian ware containing
water. In this I wash my fingers in

It was Sunday morning, and whilst
the women were donning their clean
white gowns and the men were array-
ing tnemseives in tneir ounuaj suius,
the native drum or "lali" sounded
throush the village summoning the
members of the little community to
church. I was, however, on other er-
rands bound, attended by my man I
started on a tramp down the vale.
This fellow was a bit of a character in
his way. With an expression on the
border-line between sagacity and im
becility he might have played many
parts. When it suited his purpose he
appeared as stupid as an owl. At other
times when the light of intelligence
displayed itself in his features he
might have passed for a sage. How
ever, we got on very well, though he-
was apt to indulge in the procrastinat
ing ways of his race. We have here
an abominable word that is responsible
for more laziness and impudence than
ftvn -nn" and "nilikia" It is "Ma-
lua" and its literal meaning is Jjye-
and-bye;" but it will carry you over
Fiii. There is a delightful sense of
futurity about this Fijian word which
represents the negative side of human
activity in these latitudes, embodying,
?Litw !h lZ "LTfLl
row.
Nothing of special interest occurred
during my ramble. I had to cro3 the
river about a score of times, the water
owing to the-, heavy rains reaching
sometimes up to my middle, and it was
often a little ticklish work stemming
the rapid current. When I arrived at
a little village named Bureta, the
good people were all coming out of
church and when I sat down in a very
sloppy condition in the chiefs house
with half the village in their Sunday
best squatting a'll around me, I felt
the contrast in our attires to a
very considerable degree. In a few
days after this I returned to Levuka
and this leads me to say a good word
for this struggling little town. Levu
ka has seen better days. It once was
the seat of the Government, but since
that was removed to Suva, it has to
depend on its own efforts for exis
tence. To a great extent isolated it
has built up a commerce of its own
and owing to the energetic efforts of
its inhabitants it has acquired an in
dependent position that will enable it
to pass securely through any stormy
weather that may come over the colo
ny. It is very picturesquely situated
and at the first glance quite captivates
the fancy of the visitor. I will net de
scribe it, but tourists from the North
Pacific would do well to get off the
mail-steamer at Suva, and spend a
week or more at Levuka. If inclined
for active exercise they will be able
to ramble about the mountain slopes of
a really lovely little tropical island.
Through the initiation of the Governor
a bi-weekly steam-service with Suva is
on the point of being established. The
hotels are excellent and the charges

There was a lot of fun up on the
slopes of Punchbowl yesterday morn-

Sunday Schools.
The regular quarterly "hoike" oi the
branch Sunday schools of Kawaiahao
was held in the mother church yester
day, before a very large congregaicn,
not a few of the members of which
were foreigners. The exercises were
very creditable, but the palm was ac
corded the Kamoiliili school whk-h
showed the best training. An echo &ong
was the most attractive feature of the
exercises of this school. The Puaikala-
ni school, of which Mr. Lilikalani is
teacher, was very close to Kamoiliili in
the excellence of its exercises.
It is more than likely that the open
ing of the League baseball season will
be postponed from April 9 for the rea
son that the weather has stopped prac
tice. The Association will be called
upon in a day or two to decide the mat
ter. I have been afflicted with rheuma-
tlsm for fourteen years and nothing
seemed to give any relief. I was able
to be around all the time, but constant-
lv suffering. I had tried everything I
