In the window of the Gazette com
pany, on King street, is an old cala
bash, made by hand of kou, more than
one hundred years ago. 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 has been invent
ed by aji Englishman, consisting vir
tually of a small battery and five
wheels. It will run three year9 with
out a particle of attention and at the
end of that time all that is required
PHONE 861 1 to attach a new battery. Another
English' clock allows the possessor to
ascertain at a glance the time, the
meridian and relative position of every
part of the empire, besides being able
to witness the actual speed ana direc
tion of the world's rotation. The mo
tive power is a clock in the base of
a stand and the apparatus requires
winding only once each week.

A case of good beer is a pretty good thing
to have in the house during the holiday season.
Friends drop in during the evening, and a
'glass of beer with some dainty sandwiches
or a Welsh rarebit is a very important feature
of the evening's enjoyment.
You can order direct from the brewery or
from your dealer. If from the latter, be sure
to specify Primo Beer, as it is very light, and
is brewed specially for this climate.
