The element' of the pictur esque which entered larjrely Into the travel of those days was not favorable to speed. Comfort, too, was out of the question, but those who did go from home were sure of a wmrm welcome from the missionary family wherever stationed, not only because of the iso- bullding. I remembft the awe with which I (taxed Into the gloomy dpth of the still open cellar. A Mr. Castle was the carpenter. Most of the lumber used was koa. from the forest-Inland. The flooYa were of wide boards, sawed by hand, under Mr. Castle's superin tendence. He afterwards made shin gles for the house out of the same tim ber, although It was at first thatched with la-l. The shingled roof yielded a supply of rainwater In the rainy sea son. This was stored In casks In the cellar.

It was In 1X17 that my father and mother and three children. Including myself, started on a visit to the hos pitable family stationed at Kwa. I well remember lenvlng my home early In the morning and going In as straight a line as possible, from where Kawatu hao Seminary standi to what la now the quarantine station. Two men with long poles on their shoulders and Urge calabashes or gourd tied .to earh end of the pol carried the food jand clothes for the family, These aala- bashes. as they were light and airy and completely waterproof, were almost In dispensable to Island travel In those days. Tiesldea these men several others went with us to carry us over the "hard r'y'." though the hard pUces were motly soft on this occasion, and after wading with us on their barks for som distance, through muJ and shallow water, we reached a place where the water was deep and where a large double canoe awaited our ar rival. In It some low benches had been pl.ired to make us comfortable and Oovernor Kekuano nimseii was our host and steerer. My wooden doll, made of koa, had been arrsyed for th Journey In a silk dress, the silk In her gown having bn given t me(her nmeskety the mgn rhlef Klnau. I held firmly onto the doll while we rrosed through mud .nd water, and was glad when we both reached the canoe In safety. The tea was smooth and we children were very happy as we glided pa"t the shore the native boatman sung melee and even our cara-worn parents semed to rest and enjoy themselves as the hours went on.

Froir tne upper veranaa my older stsier ana myself often watched the active gam bols "of the crowd of natives eliding or the great rollers of the surf, which we could see through the stems of .a rrov of cocoanut trees. That " now nearly forgotten sport was then In Its fullest activity. In the absence of hor-.es equestrian sport had rot displaced It Each one swam out with the light surf board under the arm, diving urd?r the Incoming combing rollers. Reaching the point where the waves began to comb over, they adjusted themselves adroitly on the front of the wave In a prostrate position on the board. With a few rapid strokes of the hands and feet they were in motion, and the wave did the rest, shooting them forward The sea spurted In front of the dartlnr board, while the nurf foamed over them behind as they slid down the steep hll of the wave, which ever came pushtnr up under them. It required great skll" to maintain the precise position on th slope of the wave which was nereary and sometimes a less pract'eed on would be overtaken by the comber and left behind. I?ut a majority of the per formers were able to kneel on their boards and many of them to stand erect after gettirg started.' This was a universal sport of the the chiefs and common people alike.
