H. S. Crocker Company, of San Fran
cisco. Mr. de la Vergne has long been
known as a writer of promise and this
work vrill add to his reputation. In
some of the poetry there is the ring of
literature and the stories are clever
compositions. Here is the sonnet on
Leahi, which is one of the best things
in the book:
As lies the Sphinx upon old Egypt's
sand
In silence deep while slow the years
unfold;
E'en so thou watchest where the waters
hold
Their sway the wraves slow marching
on the land
Till lines of foam are stretched along
the strand.
Thou seest with a glance assured and
bold,
The secret sea beneath thy feet un
unrolled;
While spirits of the deep thou dost
command.
Or croucheth like the lion of the seas
Though years have changed thy fiery
heart to stone.
Below the plain is filled with tropic
trees,
While from the flowering shrubs and
plants is blown
A heavy fragrance on the languid
breeze;
Yet 'mid the beauty, thou art stern,
alone.
GOOD WATER.
Report to the Quartermaster
General of the Army.
(Army and Navy Journal).
Quartermaster General Ludington
gives a few details of the new depots
in the islands, to which we have fallen
heir so strangely.
Lieutenant Colonel Ruhlen, in charge
at Honolulu, reports that he has secur
ed the necessary office rooms and store
houses for use of department head
quarters and depot, and also about fif
teen acres of ground for a corral. He
has organized and placed in service
the Government mules and wagon
transportation.
The only resources of the country for
building material are stone and sand.
The stone is a very hard and brittle
volcanic rock or lava, resembling in
color blue limestone and in texture a
very hard, gritty limestone. Every
thing else requisite for construction
work, except stone and sand, will have
to be imported from the Pacific coast.
The lime used is brought from Califor
nia, but the cement is imported Port
land, brought usually as ballast in sail
ing vessels direct from Europe. No
bricks are made, those in use having
been brought in ships as ballast from
the Pacific coast. A limited quantity
of lumber is Tvept on hand in local
yards, but the whole supply in Hono
lulu today does not probably exceed
1,000,000 feet of all kinds. The price
for which it is sold is not unreason
ably high.
All the "water heretofore used by the
troops in camp and at the Quartermas
ter's corral is that furnished by the
city -water supply plant. The source
of supply is artesian wells, found every
where on this island; the -water bear
ing sand or gravel stratum being en
countered at a depth of from 200 to 300
below sea level, and the water usually
flows to the height of 32 feet above sea
level when confined in tubes. Almost
the entire irrigation system of the Isl
and of Oahu is supplied with water
from these artesian wells. The water
obtained from these wells appears to
be pure and free from any objection
able taste.
OLD ANNUITIES.
Spanish Discoveries in Going Over the
Books.
The Spanish Government has just
made some queer discoveries in the
course of an investigation of its ac
counts to determine where new econo
mies might be introduced. It seems
that in 1S37 annuities were granted
to a number of nuns, the youngest of
whom was at that time seventeen years
of age and the oldest sixty-six. Not
withstanding the fact that the ages of
the annuitants would now range 'be
tween seventy-eight and 120 years,
none of them has apparently died, for
the pensions, amounting in all to 90,
000 pesetas a year, have been drawn
regularly ever since they were grant
ed. The Church authorities have been
asked for an explanation and for proofs
that the nuns are still alive, failing
which the latter will be scheduled as
dead.

The soil is good and water Is obtain
able on the lots in wells only a few
feet deep. There ia access to the
beach from all of the lots,
v There is a fair carriage road to the
lots from the Park.
The fact that almost all of the beach

beach lots; an opportunity est
to recur again, for present per
of beach lots buying for tbeir KT3

The Advertiser always hastens to
correct an error, even if no damage has
been done by the mistake. In the art
icle of Monday morning on the trans

the headlines that the, business was go
ing over to the Hawaiian Hardware
Company. It should have been told
that the consolidation was with the
Pacific Hardware Company. The Ha
waiian Hardware Company, it has been
reported, may figure in a similar
transaction later.

Hiogo. Dec. 21st, 1894.
Dear Sirs: As the sample lot of "HIRANO WATER" which you BtsA
