This is the last week of the Kilo-
hana Art exhibition. As the picture

However, the remaining afternoons of
thP rvvpek will be ample time for eve
the most tardy ones to avail them
cpivpq of what is awaiting them i
the Art League rooms. Catalogue and
admission are alike free to the public
As one looks down the list it may
be discovered that the number coin
cides almost exactly with that of six
months ago, although perhaps fewer
of the exhibits are offered for sale.
It appears also that there are less oil
colors in proportion to the others, but
some large and striking water colors
are there in compensation. Of these
Sirs. Kelley takes the lead as being
the author, and so well appreciated
were two of her representations of
Hawaiian leis, one Ilima and the
other of carnations with a 3coa cala
bash, that they were both purchased
the first evening. There is still a
golden Ilima lei which invites the
purchaser and excites the admiration
of many a one who would gladly :be
the owner if only his ship had come
in. A most striking picture by the
same artist hold a fine middle space
on the wall. "The Mouth of Onomea
Gulch." Mrs. Kelley improved to the
fullest degree her hours spent in the j
vicinity of Ililo last winter, and this is
one of the evidences. The silvery
water in contrast to the rich red soil
lhl brilliant verdure, together with
The fantastic natural formation make
a picture not soon to be forgotten.
Typically Hawaiian also are two
other scenes showing grass houses
which the tourist to come will look
for in vain except upon canvass, un
less he goes into some of the by ways
and out of the way places to search
for such .picturesque scenes as are here
depited. Besides her Hawaiian views
which are the most endearing objects
of her brush is a .beautiful piece of
workmanship, No. 19, "In .Alameda,"
and the little gem in the gold sur
rounding, "A Storm," No. 22. When
Mrs. Kelley works the feeling of this
foreign bit into some of her Island
scenes, the attractions of the Art
Lpaeue will be richer yet.
Turning to the work of another ex
hibitor whom all welcome for the
first time. is found a number of clear
and crisp bits of scenery in Califor

It is a pleasure to see a i
thp. list, and it is hoped tha
it may continue there, and with work
ns attractive. It is hard to single out
any particular ones from among those
by this artist, but one may ask that
the public be favored often with work
in the same vein by the same brush.
Mr. Hitchcock has been engaged of
late with interests closer to his heart
than painting, and his numbers are
hardly as large as usuaf, but all will
pardon him at this turning point in
his life, in .full confidence that the
present interests of his heart and
painting Avill hereafter be such help
to each other that friends will behold
him happy in life, and better than
ever before represented on canvass.
The good wishes of the Art League
and of all his friends will surely be
extended to him in both these direc
tions. Meantime he has been ponder
ing -what the wild waves say, and has
shown in his chef-d'oeuvre of the
present time. "Outposts." It. may not
appeal to some as the one large move
of a former exhibition did. but it is
full of thought and careful study.
"Kilauea in 1S93." close at hand shows
the vividness of our favorite crater
scene without the blood and thunder
element that once obtained as indis
pensible. Mr. Hitchcock has set that line of
work upon an entirely new plane, in
daylight and reality, and the picture
lover" owes him a debt of gratitude.
V piece of his Cocoanut Island shore
appears in a frame exhibited by Mrs.
Graham, separately numbered and also
a work of art. There are two others
by the same lady enclosing the work
of Mr. Dodge, and the originality of
design and execution of the poker
etchtng wakes the wish for more work
from the same source, distinctive and
apart from the work of others. Men
tioning Mr. Dodge, the merit on this
occasion seems somewhat m reverse
proportion to the size. Almost un
noticed among the others appear a

namely, "Entrance to Suez Canal,'
No. CM, and "Off the Straits of Mes
sina." If all the other absent or trav
eling members of the League would
but do as well en route, it would add
very much to the enjoyment of thos
who stay at home, as well as to th
traveler. Other glimpses of foreign
-cenery are shown by Mrs. H. M. von
Holt, in "A Bit of Grumwald, near
Berlin," and "On the Island cf Rugen,
numbered respectively 31 and 37. It i
pleasant that members of the Island
community have been able to glean so
far from home, and these two pieces
in oil colors show the possibility of
what lies close at hand. But cnief
among those on the oil color side of
the erallery are three canvasses by Mr
S. Decoto. "Stopping first at the Mag
nolias " No. 32, and then at the land
scape showing a scene in the quaint
"Kilipaki Village, Lahaina," one
pauses before No. 45, for it is one of the
most attractive pictures on the wall.
Few of the exhibitors are not strug
gling for advancement in technique
and the artist who gives "Threaten
ing." is among them, but the force and
feeling of course in question surpasses
any that she has contributed. It is
an especial credit to one whose time
is mostly spent at a distance from
even such a little nucleus of artists as
Honolulu affords, and the effect of
cloud and sea herein defined are filled
with thoughtful meaning.
While at the oils the viewer can
pass if not careful a small one in a
simple frame by Fred. Yates. It is
designated "Quiet," and all through its
composition and its tone is bespeaks
its name. Mr. Yates treatment of
landscape is quite unique, and the
ability which produced this bit is a
great lesson to the beginner or the
realist who leaves "all the soul out of
a canvass while striving to depict its
There is sreat vitality in the con
tributions of Mrs. Belle Jones, No. 21,
'An Impression" is an example of dar
ing simplicity, and has a dash and a
'reedom which should underlie all art.
It is simnlv what its title calls for, but
from such impressions rightly develop
ed grow sturdy and substantial re
sults in the way of pictures. Mrs.
Jones' "Oleanders" will be an attrac
tion to a great many who may he a
ittle at a loss to interpret the former
The space between the windows are
occunied by architectural work in
which is recognized the well known
hand of Mr. Wm. Diokey. Some of
these are a little foretaste of what
may be realized around Honolulu in
more substantial form, hoth m pic
turesque cottage and stately mansion.
Do not fail to mark those designated
as koa halls; happy is the man who
an design and execute on paper such
artistic effects and happy are those
who can carry the ideas on to their
final intention and have reproduced
for their homes these beautiful forms
n the materials best suited for their
permancy. In tne same line, ana in
color also in frames, are the work of
Mr. G. E. CUcCrea. This gentleman
exhibits for the first time in the
,eague, but with an impression that
ill hp n lastinsr one. Here, as in the
rt of the hypnotfst, is shown the
power of "suggestion," and the direct-
ess ami force of Mr. McCrea s techni
cal skill are very much to be admired.
The absence of anything overdone is
most essential, and for this artist the
hope is that before the next exhibition
he will have been let free among the
rocks and hills, by the water side and
anions: the sunsets, for much can be
expected from what his brush will be
able to accomplish under the inspira
tion of nature.
The work of Mrs. A. B. Tucker is
much missed from the walls on this
occasion. It would oe very pieasani.
if she could have sent a number of
pieces as charming as her one glimpse
of "Idlewild ." No. 12. The youngest
contributor this time is Miss Florence
Hall, who will be found represented
in the corner cabinet of the alcove,
by a prettily decorated dessert set, and
one or two other pieces. In anotner

Couldn't See the Chicken.
When the transports were here,
several of the Boys in Blue entered
a Chinese fruit store to purchase some
fruit. One of the Boys gave a very
smooth American quarter to the Pake.
The side which the eagle was on, was
worn entirely, smooth. The Pake re
fused to take the quarter, saying:
"No can takee. Him no good. Me no
can see chicken."

WHAT IS IT!
A simple, compact, and durable machine, which successfully
performs the work of the pen, with a tremendous saving of
time and exertion.

excepting such as must be done in books.
TO WHOM IS IT USEFUL?
To every one who has writing to do. In business circles its
desirability is assured. Lawyers and journalists cannot do
without it. Professional and scientific men realize its worth
to them. The author and thinker find it invaluable. It con

Any one of ordinary intelligence. A very few trials enable
any one to write upon it readily. Thereafter it is only a mat
ter of practice.
