'Twas the night before Christmas,
And all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even a mouse.
When mama awoke witha start and
And wondered why papa
Was so wide awake;
A rumbling and roaring
Soon came to their ears
A noise that would follow . them,
All through their years.
For down near the bath room
The water rushed out,
And it caused poor papa
And mama to shout.
"Oh, why did we make such a fearful
"Oh, John dear, I fear that
My poor heart will break,
Unless you will promise
That tomorrow you'll call
Bath, the plumber, and have him
Go over it all.
And then no more leaks,
For we know that 'tis true,
That folks always call Bath
When there's plumbing to do."

Rev. Dr. S. E. Bishop contributed the

When Bingham and Thurston, with
their associate missionaries, arrived in
Hawaii in 1820, they found the 150,000
Hawaiians a nation of depressed serfs,
under oppressive and arrogant chiefs.
They were deeply degraded in morals.
Social impurity was universal, and en
hanced by the presence of a multitude
of careless and dissolute seamen.
Drunken rioting was prevalent; the
roval Drinces and their consorts were
verv commonly found debauched with
While under the lead of the wi$e and
able Kamehameha civil rder pre
vailed, and life and personal security
were generally safe. The common
people were exceedingly poor; they
owned no land, and no property that
their chiefs could not rob them of at
will; there was no inducement to save
Worst of all, over the whole people,
and chiefs as well, spread the dark and
abject fear of the sorcerers, whose
power to bewitch and destroy held all
in constant dread. Such was the bar
barian depression of the Hawaiians
when the Gospel of Christ arrived here
to deliver and elevate them, and the
missionaries fell actively to work, aid
ed by many successive bands of help
ers. What was the result of those labors?
No labors were ever more fruitful, n,o
result more wonderful and gratifying.
Within two decades more than one
third of the adUlts had come into
personal and joyful allegiance to the
Lord, and the rulers had earnestly be
gun to frame civilized statutes. Be
fore the third decade was finished the
whole people had been set free, and
endorsed with lands and advanced Civ
il Rights. A Liberal Constitution had
been enacted. Parliamentary Govern
ment had been fully organized. The
common people had all received pos
session of their lands In fee simple.
In less than thirty years Hawaii
stood before the world as a substan
tially civilized nation. Before 1850, so
complete was the development of civ
ilized Institutions, of Legislature and
Courts, of Law and Justice, of system
atic and economical administration,
that the Great Powers of the world
gladly united in the acknowledgment
of the independence of Hawaii, and In
treaties with her as a favored nation.
Now, we have to ask, how was this
reform and renovation accomplished?
What was the method of healing ap
plied to cure the deep and destroying
malady of heathenism? How was a
barbarous and hopeless people lifted so
quickly into light and hope and lib
erty and prosperity? How did they
become in thirty years clothed and en
riched, and free? And what is the
lesson taught by this marvellously suc
cessful process of the reclamation of
a nation? -
The answer is one that sends confu
sion upon this new modern cry, that
men's minds are not to be turned upon
their own personal salvation after the
old-fashioned religious way, but are tot
set directlyx upon saving society .from
Its evils, and uplifting one another. To
seek one's own salvation, we are told
is pure selfishness. " The first thing
is to set men altruistically to lifting
one another out of the mire. It was
not by any such doctrine or practice
that-Hawaii was lifted out of the mire
of heathenism and set upon its feet as
an enlightened people.
The missionaries at once wrought
zealously in the old-fashioned Gospel
method. They sought with all faith
and strength to turn the hearts of in
dividual men and women first of all to
the Liviner and Holy God. They la
bored to enlighten the people religious
ly, and make them hear the gracious
call of God to become His children in
His son Jesus Christ. They strove to
teach them to fear God and Him only,
to sek His eternal salvation in life
and in death. They held before them
the Heaven of blessedness and the Hell
of perdition, and urged each one to
embrace the great salvation, and find
sonship and peace through repentance
from sin and faith in the Lord and
They taught the people in every pos
sible way, by books, by literature, by
training schools, by example, in the
arts of life, in the social duties. But
the great emphasis was daily and al
ways upon the duty and need of com
ing to God through the Lord Jesus
Christ, and finding full salvation. This
done, all the rest that was needful
would follow. Especially would all
altruistic effort spontaneously follow.
The saved sinner, rejoicing in God's
mercy and Jestis love, at once and
eagerly turns to convert and save his
brother and neighbor.
The Hawaiians were receptive. They
heartily recei ved' and obeyed the Gos
pel preached to them. In eighteen
years the Truth had penetrated their
minds, the Holy Spirit descended in
great power upon the churches al
ready gathered, and the people poured
in in hundreds and thousands of ardent
converts. A new nation was born in
a day. The great revolution was ef
fectively accomplished. Set right to
ward God and His law, the people
eagerly and ardently sought together
for all higher and better things, so
cially and politically. And another
decade" saw the Hawaiians standing on
their feet as a civilized nation, because
What is our lesson from this? Is it
not our perpetual and enduring lessen
for all effective reform and uplifting in
all strata of society, that the first and j
essential thing to be done is to set the j
inaiviauai man siraignt wun tioa ana
Eternity? Before all else, the spirit
ual nature of the man is to be awak
ened, the blind eye to be opened and
the deaf ear to be unstopped, the evil
and wayward heart to be turned to the
choice of good in the fear of God, and
the faith of His salvation. The fallen,
the sunken, the bemired, the msimed
and debauched souls will not, cannot,
be brought up into cleanness and light
until the Heavenly light of Christ finds
entrance into them and they are
brought into intercourse with the Di
vine and the Eternal.
That great Redemption erf Hawaii
sixty years ago. let it be studiel ani
pondered, a notable and fruitful lesson
for the redemption of society, every
where. First of all, bring the individ
ual into communion with God -is a
saved soul. Then will he become, a
center of uplifting to all around him.
