the smooth sunlit sea all around, mako up
a charming tableau, which is very effectively
completed by tho Jagged crescent of
black-pointed rocks that start up out of
tho shining waters at tho extremity of
Capo Jlesuratlo, against which tho surf
breaks jncessantly in spouts of glittering
foam.
It is trim that at best tho metropolis of
tho "black Republicans" of Libora is but
tho toy capital of n toy government, but
Its 1!),000 citizens havo evidently as good
an opinion Of it and thomsolvcs as tho
consequential frog In iEsop's fable, judging
from their condescending message to
Germany in 1870, that "tho Mbcrian government
would preserve a strict neutrality
during tho pending conflict between
Germany and Franco. "
Elephant at Work,
IW. T. Hornaday.1
In turning squaro timber a tusker puts
bis tusks under tho edge, lifts upward
and forward at an ongio of
and easily throws it over; but the
female or muckna, having no tusks, has
to kneel, placo tho baso of tho trunk, not
tho forehead, against tho sldo of tho log.
and by a downward and forward pressure
against the upper edgo of the log push It
over. Iu either caso tho work is done in
less than a rninula if thero be no special
dilllculty to overcome
In the Bungam timber depot all tbo
work of piling and arranging the logs in
regular order at equal distances apart,
with tho right sldo uppermost, was performed
by elephants under tho direction
of their mahouts. A word of command,
a silent touch of the hand or kneo was
enough, Thero was no loud bawling or
angry swearing at tho laborers, such as
would havo been absolutely nocessary had
thoy been llarbadoes or Demerara
negroes, nor was thero any Insulting back
talk or insubordination, such as tboso
abomlablo scallawags aro wont to Indulge
in. In fact, tho clophants worked llko

A Piece of Vandalism
ICInclnnatl Times-Star.
"Ono of tho greatest pieces of vandalism
which Cincinnati over countenanced, " remarked
Mr. Henry 0. Urncr on 'change
recently, "was .tho destruction of tho Indian
mound on Fifth streot It stood very
nearly opposite what is now Hughes high
school,- and was covered by beautiful
forest trees. Had tho ground around been
made a park it would to-day have a national
reputation. And that is what
should havo been done. Think of that
mound going back to prehistoric times
and standing as a monument to tho people
who onco inhabited this great country,
and yet who aro now utterly forgotten!
But it was leveled to the ground almost
without a protest That was a piece of
vandalism without a parallel.
"I can remember very well that during
tho Tippccanoo campaign Gen, Harrison
was a frequent visitor at our house. Ono
Sunday afternoon my father, Gon. Harrison
and mytiolf went walking, and we
climbed to the top of tho mound. I recollect
that tho general took mo by tho
hand and pointed out tho places whero
they posted the sentries during tho Indian
"
wars.
A "(jllmpso of the Seine."
IJ'irk Itte.
"Wo were stretched out on the bluff this
morning, horo on tho Cote do Grace, gazing
with quiet contentment upon Havre,
tho ocean, and the beautiful bay of St
Bauvcur, when wu made the acquaintance
of a young English artist Speaking of
our recent tour, ho remarked:
"I hate that portion of Normandy;
tho vista you havo in tho curve of
the road leading from St "VVaudrillo to
Cauflbec. "
Wo looked at him in surprlso.
"The reason Is, I spent a day there
making a skotch in oil. Tho view was
lovely, and I outdid myself in catching a
greenish gllmpso of the Beine "
" Why, it can't bo seen from that point, "
said Tudor.
"It was visible to mo. I saw it distinctly;
and I painted it Tho purchaser
couldn't rest until he saw tho exquisite
viow of tho Seine, so I agreed to run over
with him and point it out I've never
gono near tho spot since. "
"Why, what was the matter?"
Matter! Why, when wo got there my
green gllmpso of tho Selno turned out to
bet the slate-roof of a railroad shed I"
"flakes" at St. John's.
(Frank Leslie's Illustrated.! '
The cod from the inshore fisheries aro
brought in, cleaned, tongues, livers and
sounds saved, and then salted. After remaining
a certain length of tlmo in salt,
they are washed, carried to the "flake"
and spread out to dry. Tho"llako" consists
of a horizontal framework of small
poles covered with spruco boughs, and
supported by uprights, the air having free
access underneath. Here tho cod are
spread to dry in the sun, and during this
process require constant attention. In
damp and rainy weather they aro piled in
heaps, with the skin outward. When
bleached white, thoy are ready for storing.
Tho dried fish Intondcd for distant
transportation aro packed by scrow power
In drums. The shores of tho entrance to
St John's, and all along Conception bay,
aro covered by theso "Hakes, " which at a
distance remind oxio of the of
Italy.
Men Who Own Horsos.
INew York Eitn.!
"There's no mistaking the owner of a
fast horso, or a road horse of any kind,
no matter whero you may meet him In
New York, " said tho proprietor of a big
livery stable up town. "Iu tho country
nearly every man of reasonable means can
afford to keep at least one horse, but in
New York it is rather an expansive lux
ury. To bo tho owner of a roadster
argues that you "io a man of -means, and
as eyery one wants to appear wealthy, 1
suppose that is the reason one hears so
much horse talk. They talk about yachts-.men
being unable to talk of anything bul
their own particular form of sport, but
that's nonsense compared to the enthusiasm
of a horseman. Yachts are out of
commission six mouths in a year, but a
horse is always ready, "
T e "Hlng" ' heory.
It Is an exploded theory that ono ring
grows upon every year. Tho agricultural
department at Washington finds
that trees of six years showed twelve
rings; of twelve, twenty-one; of flie,
eleven; and of twenty; the
trees being, respectively, locust, hickory,
crabapple and oak.

Honolulu, January l,ilHSO.
To the Public!:
Wc respectfully solicit your subscription for
one or more copies of the " DAILY. HONO-'
LULU PRESS."
- '
-
-a
Our reasons for asking your support are
these :
First The DAILY HONOLULU PRESS
is an Independent morning paper, established
hi the interests of morality and good
and will be devoted to advancing the
prosperity of this Kingdom.
Second The paper is conducted. in a
just and logical manner, aiming to fairly
represent public, opinion, and to be entirely
from everything objectionable n a family
newspaper.
Third It is our aim to make ths DAILY
HONOLULU PRESS the leading paper in
this Kingdom. . With (his object in view we
have secured the best literary talent, both at
home and abroad,-at our command, while the
subscription price has been established at
the low' rate of FIFTY CENTS PER
MONTH, with free delivery, so as to bring
the paper, wifhin .the reach of all.
Fourth We desire to introduce our paper
into every English-reading family in this
Kingdom, feeling assured that it will be per
manently retainedafter its merits, as a live,
journal, are once known.
Fifth As AN Auvertisino Mr.ftiUM, the
DAILY HONOLULU PRESS possesses
uncqualed advantages, having retained all the
subscribers to the late Saturday Press, in
addition to a new subscription list, which is
daily increasing, so that the paper is not only
enjoying a large circulation in this city and
vicinity, hut is also mailed by every steamer to
subscribers at almost every landing on the
other Islands, and also to foreign countries,
thus combining the advantages of both daily
tnd weekly editions. The coming month,
especially, our paper will have a much large
circulation than all the other daily papers
combined, as we intend sending specimen
copies to every resident on these Islands
who reads English,
We, therefore, ask your co-operation in
our enterprise, and trust you will avail your
1
self of this offer. "' ' "
