The following letter from an Oahu schoolmistress, appears in the Spring- ' field (Mass.) Republican, of March 22: WAIANAE, Oahu, February, 1901. j My housework is all done, and tne tiny home is neat as a pin. My lunch of j coffee, carried for convenience in a one time beer bottle, and sandwiches, plac ed in one end of a nour-bag, wnieh my books in the other end are to balance, I go down the terraced lawn that over looks the blue Pacific. At the stable, I saddle and bridle my little buckskin mule, and with a farewell "ye haw" , from her adoring sister, Janice Mere dith, I ride slowly down the steep hill. .. -j .5- .3 a- - - - - iiinu Wilms uuu lue uuutuh- ,,,( ti,0 tj , , t , . v ... covered hillside to the main road, as fj?nt f U"er Co" h9 bt?n d,1S" we denominate the one which leads txibuting the books among his Honolu from the coffee plantation at the head lu customers. of the valley, to the government road, j The J.

Is one of that follows the rough shore line all the oldest and largest establishments in the way around the Island. jjts une in the United States and is the This week the lantana is all in bloom i , s . because of the heavy rains, and the branches wave in the soft air far above my head. Lantana here, you know, is not the polite plant of our eastern con servatories, but a wild turbulent affair, covering mountains and valleys with its dense and prickly growth. It is said to have been introduced some dozen years ago by a woman who brought one tiny plant for her garden. On good lanS the trunks are ofter two or three inches in diameter. At last have gotten myself and ycu, gentle reader, down the hill, and now I ride for half a mile past a siiall coffee plantation, which la nrilllant with its crop of bright red berries. The Japanese are hard at work, their heads strapped tight with a towel as if in preparation for a "cram for ex ams," the rest of them incased in blue dungaree. I "oheyo" them as I pass, for they are a kindly lot, these nearest neighbors of mine. Kimura s rat pigs run out from under the papaia trees to see what's up. and with a grunt de part as rapidly. His two small sons. Kechi and Boss Henry, grin at me as I pass. Their round heads have a fringe of straight black hair around the crown. Their small kimonos tied around their fat stomachs float in the breezes as they run. displaying to the admiring hens and chickens, the main part of their anatomy. Down, ever down, the rocky road I ride, still slow ly, for the combination of hill, stone and mud is too much, even for fleet footed Jenny, who tucks her little hoofs down so neatly and wags her brown-tipped ears in a most inconse quential way. In the lower coffee-piece I spy six white and brown wild tur keys, who depart from my vicinity as rapidly as Kimura's p?etp. Still lower down the valley in my neighbor's taro patches, I count eight beautiful wild peacocks and two tiny mudhena. In the rushing brook I see a solitary gray and black bird waiting patiently for his chance to seize the oopu, the one fish of our mountain stream. At last I am off, with a wild rush uphill and then down over the smooth er roads to the flats below. The air is sweet with lantana. the mynah i birds chatter in the bushes, and as I ! canter swiftly along, in shirtwaist and j old bicycle skirt, clutching my coffee : bottle, I laugh aloud to think of the j contrast of my former goings to school in the staid New England city I still call home. There in a correct tailor j suit and swagger hat (I still wear the I hat minus the swagger). I walked se l dately down the beautiful elm-shaded street past the venerable college, with houses of wealth and culture standing, each in its own garden, meeting fa mous professors and business men, till i I reached school, which had its Paris 1 branch "for those who desire unusual i facilities." etc. Soon I come to my i friend En One, a kindly Chinese, who j is cultivating a small kuleana, which is a grant oi lana to some nauve uy a king. Twice a week he presents me with a bag of c abbages, lettuce, onions, tomatoes and parsley, just because he has imbibed the generosity of these lovely Islands. Just below his place I stop for a chat with my only woman friend, a lo'ely half-white, who lives in the family house of the owner of this valley. It was the scene of many a b e: losn in former days, when the family was rich and powerful. L nder the shade i of the huge willow-like peppei tree, with palms and banyan and orange trees near by, the huge grass mat would be spread for the native r. a.t. Pigs roasted underground, fish baked j in lai leaves, kalabashes of pol, taro, ana, kukui nut and chili pepper, limu and gallons of okolehao were the dain ties placed before the guests, all dec orated with odorous flower leis. An other mile of dusty road, partly shadi-d hv th fpatherv aiiraroba tree, where I onlv meet stray cattle, and I tie my I muie in the shade near the beach, j I Here I wait for the train from Hono I lulu that bears me to my native school I in the near-by valley. As I wait I watch the long, white rollers, combing up on the hard sand, or dashing against the lava crags of I Mauna LahUahi. a lone mass of rock : arm feet hie-h. that was left on tuese ! coral-bordered shores in the ages when j the volcanoes were throwing out meir , fiery floods. Near shore 1 see a scnooi of fish, pursued by seme aquatic ene my, jumping far out of their element, while far away I see the sporting of a school of whales, or the white sai!s of a vessel bound for far-otT ports, with Its burden of sugar. Turnfrg my head. I look up the beautiful valley. Far away I see the shini: g roof of my little home on the slopes of Kawiwi, while all around rise the inaccessible sides of the Waianae mountains. The soft green of lantana is broken by rd parth or black lava crags. It Is impossible to des ribe the Ti-onith of colorine or the marvp'ous formations of the mountains, from Kaala. which In spite of Its 4 000 feet .of reck, has a bog on Irs cloud-capped I summit, to the mountain across from my home, with its buttresses and deep ravine-?, wnfucf come me can oi innu merable wild goats. To me this valley 's one of perfect beauty, for can I nv always see the ocean and the mountains, the won drous blue of the sky .vnd spa ?.rd thf myriad sliatlej of, verdure, rock and soil. Above all other charm is that of the climate, which, to one worn by the harrowing jumps of the New England thermometer, thia calm of our eleva tion, is perfection. Whenever I see tourists on the train or in tne torpid air of Honolulu I think if they like this, what would they say to our cli mate, with the temperature seldom above 80 or below 60 degrees, with either the soft air from the salt Pacific or the bracing strength of the moun tain Dreezes. , Eut hark! the train has whistled at the curve, and I seize my beloved bot tle and bag and signal for the stop. Ding-dong! and now I am off to school c, D. I. S. THE BEST REMEDY FOR MATISM. RHBU- QUICK RELIEF FROM PAIN.

Which is Better: To Try an Experiment, of PioOt By a Honolulu Citizen's Experience ? Something new is an experiment. Must be proven tc be as represented. Be successful at home or you doubt The manufacturer's statement is not convincing proof of merit. But the endorsement of friends Is. Now, supposing you had a weak back. A lame, or aching one. Would you experiment on it ? You will read of many so-called cures, But they come from far-away places. It's different when the endorsement J comes from home. Always remember, Home endorsement is the proof that backs every box of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. Mr. H. S. Swinton, of thia city, says: "I was a long sufferer from backache, having been afflicted with it for twelve years. Taking this as a symptom of kidney trouble, and seeing Doan's Backache Kidney Pills advertised as being good for complaints such as mine, I procured some of them at the Hollister Drug Co.'s store, I found up on taking them that they were doing me good, and was thereby encouraged to keep on until now I am cured of the ; backache. The merits of Doan's Back ache Kidney Pills have been striking ly shown in my case, and I recommend I them to other sufferers." Doan's Backache Kidney Pills al ways have the picture of a leaf on the wrapper. In asking for Doan's Back ache Kidney Pills ask for the kind which cured Mr. Swinton, and see that the leaf Is on the wrapper. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills are: sold by all chemists and storekeepers at 50 cents per box, six boxes $2.50, or will be mailed on receipt of price by i I the Hollister Drug Co., Honolulu, i the Hawaiian wholesale agents for Islands.
