1 nours in discussion of the ooints obs
erved. The Board was entertained at
the residence of C. IS. Reynolds, who la
ne superintendent of the settlement.
Mr. Reynolds Is not much of a talker
ut an excellent worker. He has the
gures and facts of the colony's history
mi oaiiy events at his angers ends
nd his capabilities are conclusively
roven by the manner In which the
nee is conducted.
Its progress has been gradual, but
each year finds new additions and -aids
o comfort and convenience. Mr. Rey-
olds spends half his time at the settle
ment and comes and goes every fort
night. It Is to him that the Board
ooks for its knowledge of the colony.
Mr. Reynolds says that there were
ight or more marriages recently and
hat courtship and weddings follow on
Molokai as in Honolulu. As is, well
known, all children born are. as soon
as possible, brought to the Kapiolanl
Home In Honolulu, and, as is also well
known, they seldom develop leprosy. A
Hby or six months was brought here
when the Board came back Saturday
night. In one of .the Bishop Home cot
tages were twins of ten months, whose
mother, a leper, was rejoicing in the
visit of the father, who lives here. The
babies were handsome and laughing.
They will not be allowed to remain with
their mother much longer. Their moth-
r lavished her affection on their
mouths alternately with their father or
father and mother openly embraced
each other for minutes at a time.
Some of the little groups who spent
tho day In the cottages or gardens ate
openly out of the same dishes, the visit
ors brothers, wives, parents or chil
dren of the leper colonists dipping Into
the pol bowls with no thought of danger.
Old Kopena, who has had three leper
wives, and who, after burying two. Is
now happy with the third, was glad to
tell of himself. He has been for years
on the Island arid is not a leper, though
in the closest contact hourly. He takes
no precautions and his one grief is that
he has no children. Long ago he came
to the settlement 10 care for his wife,
and when she died he married a leper,
and then another at her death. He

And then we turn to tho question of
universal brotherhood of the Theosophl

junctions of both iueosophy and Budd

to have warm friendship exist between
the two, based on the same relation
against unbrotherly assumption, so lim

The present-time universal brotherhood '
may be an Utopian idea Impossible for
awhile, but for every reason it is the
duty of our Buddhists to constantly use
our might toward its realization." We
have an, earnest desire to have the high-,

be putting into practice that divine law
of compassion which Budui.a taught us.

friendship, harmony and hospitality.

The Fearless wa one of the best tugs owned by the Spreckels Towing Company of San Francisco. She was built in

The Fearl.s Is rated as a "sea-going tug" and much of her work on the Coast has been in towing large vessels and
