It is valuable because of its associations and because these oldtinie poi containers are get ting more rare every day. Calabashes go from father to son among the 11a waiians, and this one, which belonged to the grandmother of a very old lady, has passed through several generations to the present' owner. In the days of Liholiho, who was known also as Kamehameha II., it was tabu for men and women to sit at table at the same time. Women took sec ondary positions in the household and were obliged to wait until their lieges were through before they could partake of the poi and other good things pro- king by the early missionaries to take off this tabu, and he yielded, the event being made the occasion of a great feast, which was given at Keauhou, Kona, on the Island of Hawaii, where the center of government of the Islands was established at the time. Thousands of Hawaiians were pres ent, but not a woman in the lot had the courage to approach the mats on which the spread was laid. Finally Kaahumanu, wife of Liholiho, walked gingerly to the place where the poi. fish and fruits were, and dipping her finger into a calabash of poi, began eat ing. Then she helped liholiho to some. When he ate and there was no mishap the natives shouted: "The tabu is broken. There have been lies told; we may eat in safety." There was a rush for the table and the food devoured. Kaahumanu had broken the tabu, and safely. One of the early owners of the cala bash referred to was a chiefess of the district where the feast took place, and had this calabash with her and her hus band on that occasion. She was after ward pushed over a precipice by some one of the men .who had worked for her and who had taken offense at some of her language, spoken during an out burst of temper, for which she was no torious. The calabash is offered for sale be cause the money is needed by the per son more than the article, T)ut it will not be sold for less than its estimated value. A WONDERFUL CLOCK.
