O flights of fond fancy that deeply inurn Sweet scenes Of our childhood, no mon; to return! Which carry us hack in visions an I dreams And illumine life's pathway with memo ry's izleains Till we see once ajaln, though with tears the eyes till, The old spring house at the foot of the hill! There we children, barefooted, would wander to play. And wade in the braucn that tlowed on the way Through the meadows ami fields with cur rent so fleet. And the gurgle and lipple that sounded so sweet! And the water that helped turn the wheel at the mill Was from tliB spring house at the foot of the hill. And oh! I remember a pnir of blue eyes. With glances as tender and soft as the sk ies. Ami a little lnown head that was coveied with curls. And the laughter that rippled between rows of pearls. Which was changed to a cry of despair and of woe When the craw-fiih was clinging to a lit tle pink toe. Distilled bv the heart Into memory' wine, As thus Hint we drink a draught that's li vine. And lighten the burdens which after years Iea ", And banish with dreaming the demon of Care! (), in fond recollection 1 linger then-still. By the old spring house at the foot of the hill! Though vanished forever the faces that sin i lei I, And hushed is the laughter I heard when a child Yet often when musing they Hoai back to ute, And I see them and hear it as clear as can be! And I'm playing again, while t'ie heart strings all thrill. By the old spring house at the fiot of the hill. THE DRUMMER. A True Pen Picture of This Peculiar Animal. Who hatli wot ?

Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the eustachian tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its nor mal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucus surfaces.

Musick-Author of "The Columbian Historical Novels," "Brother Against Brother, etc., etc. 1 Copyright. 1896, by Funk and Wagnalls Company. New York. THE OVERTHROW OF MONARCHY. THE PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT. Feeling is still too bitter between the Republic a ;is or P. G.'s, as they are contemptuously called by their ene and i he Rovalists for the exact truth as to the overthrow of the mon archy to be obtained. The political feeling here is at about the same heat u was in the United States in 1866. The Ro) alibis still call the govern ment "Provisional," and refuse to rec ognize it. To understand theKause of the over throw of monarchy one must have s .uie knowledge ot the history of Ha waii. In the latter part of the i8ih century a powerful chief of Hawaii, known as Kamehameha, captured two American sailors named Davis and Y.ung. The latter was a boatswain on the BjsU.ii frigate Eleanor, the for mer on a little sloop, the Fair Ameri can. The Utter vessel was seiz.d, its captain and crew, with the except i n of Davis k.iled, and its cannon taken on shore. Young and Davis, being expert gunners, were spared to manage ibe artillery for Kamehameha, who at once began the conquest of the whole urout) of isiands. The two Americans were his generals, they married the daughters of chiefs or prim es, and were given high offices. After several ears of war all the Sandwich Islands were conquered, and Kamehameha declared king over all. He was succeeded by four direct de scendants known as Kamehameha II., III., IV., V. The nanves having abol ished idolatry, in the ear 1820 the missionaries sent by the American Biard of Missions came to convert them. They were kindly received by the natives, b it by this time the islands had become the rendezvous tor whal ing vessels, whose officers and crews were lewd, lawless, men, and they ob jected to the restraints of religion and decency. The missionaries, however, had come to stay, and, in an earnest manner, began the conversion of the heathen. They were often threatened by the lawless sailors, who regarded tneir up right lives as a standing rebuke to their own immortality. But, in spile of all threats and danger, the missionaries held their ground. They had the res pect and confidence ot the kings, who remained their friends, and the cause of Christianity advanced until all of the islands were brought under its sway. Missionaries who came to the islands young men, raised families of children, grew old, and died. Child ren born on the islands grew up, died, and left children, natural born Hawa- iians, the same as any American citi zen to-day is an American. The business interests of the islands soon began to attract the attention of the world. Americans came to engage in agriculture or mercantile pursuits. These dots on the face of the globe as sumed great importance, and the Eng lish, always jjalous of any advance of Americans in the acquisition of terri tory, began to turn their attention to ward the islands. As the American Congregationalists and Presbyterians had succeeded so well, the Church 'of England, from purely political motives it is claimed, began a religious conquest of the is lands. From this time on there was a struggle between Americans and Eng lish to control the ruling monarchs. Kamehameha III gave the people the first liberal constitution. All the Kamehamehas seem to have been friendly to the Americans, as they were probably under the influence of Young and Davis and their descendants. The anti-missionary party in time became the anti-American patty. His tory shows how England has sought in the past to get control of the islands, and how she objected to the annexation of them to the United States during the forties, as the trade at that time with the United States was increasing in proportions that alarmed her. The direct line ol Kamehamehas ended with Kamehamaha V. After one or two short reigns, David Kalak aua was elected king. Tho' a disso lute man, with many weaknesses, he seems to have had an idea ot justice and right. But he tried to please all parties, and, of course, failed. By this time sugar and rice planta tions had become a source of great wealth in the island-, and Americans with pluck and energy were peopling the country and getting the cream of its industries. The lands had previously been di vided among the common people in a way that was equitable to all, the as sertions made on the floors of the American Congress to the contrary notwithstanding. Under the old kings all land was invested in their name, as lands originally were in Great Britain. These kings distributed them some what according to the feudal system, to chiefs, reserving great tracts of what are still called crown lands. At the suggestion of the missionaries large quantities of lands were set apart for the common people, and these lands, tho' small in acreage, composed nearly all the very best soil on the islands. They were the taro patches and rice fields, some of which are to-day worth five hundred dollars per acre, while there are vast tracts of lava-strewn mountain land not worth one dollar for five hundred acres. Among the many American emi grants to the islands were shrewd busi ness men, who procured long leases on sugar lands and bought large tracts from the king. British influence was brought to bear upon King Kalakaua. He was told to be "a real king and have a great army and navy." Pub lic improvements were neglected, roads became almost impassable, while the king secured a large loa'u from Eng land, and squandered vast sums of the revenue in loans and on Hula dancing girls. Kalakaua was not a bad man. He was a weak, vain man, and easily in-I fluenced by bad surround itigs. He was constantly in need of moneyj tho' his annuity was gieater than the salary of the President of the tinned S'ates: He found himself hampered by the constitution which limited his power, and declared his intention of giving the people another constitution which was in reality a return to absolute mon aichy. Great excitement prevailed, and a revolution was threatened by the peo ple whose liberties were endangered, until, bowing lo the popular will, Kil akaua permitted the constitution to stand. It is said thai at this time the king's sister, Princos Liliuokalani, was in England, a guest of Queen Victoria, studying royal life. She was very in dignant at her brother yielding to the wishes of the American Hawaiians, ami on her leturn to Honolulu a rev olutiou was precipitated by some of her friends to depor-e the king and place her on ihe throne. The Amer ican settlers on the islands went to ihe rescue of the king, and the rebellion was put down. King Kalakaua died Juiuary 20, 1891, and w s succeeded Oy his sisici, Liliuokalani, as queen. The (pn.cn was thoroughly English in tducation and sympathy. From the first she dis played iir.en.se hatrtd 1 r the Ameri can missionaries. Left alone she might have made an excellent monarch, lor thoe who know her sa she possesses many go d qualities; even her political enemies deny ihe slanders against lur peisonal character. But th queen was ill-advised. Her race preji lice-. were roused by interested peisons. The American missionary was held up in the light of a moral pirate, who had lefi his conscience at Cape Horn, and come to rob and plunder the natives as the Spaniards had done in America, and all under the disguise of leligion. In various ways she kept her subjects alarmed by threats to deprive them of their constitutional liberties. 1 ho her salary ami income from crown lands exceeded the salary of the presi dent of the United States by, nearly twenty tnousand dollars, she was not satisfied. She was advised to be a queen in splendor as well as name. A crowd of evil designing friends were con stantly about her advising her to do what they should have known would be her ruin. There were nearly two thous and Americans and over one thousand Germans, as well as many English, at this lime living on the islands, who did not believe in the divine rights of kings. Many of these had, by thrift fnd honest toil, accumulated property amounting to millions. With them it was a business proposition. Should they, in order to maintain a tradition born in the dark days of barbarism, and cradled in ignorance and super stition, yield up the hard earnings of their lifetimes? Among the other schemes to replen ish the depleted treasury of the queen was what is known as the lottery. The originator of this was Mr. Thomas E. Evans, whose wit; was a maid of honor to the queen, and who had held some offices under the Icings. After the Louisiana Lottery had been driven out of the United States, its backers and supporters began to look about for some place convenient to America where the gigantic swindle might be resuscitated. The Hawaiian Islands were regarded as the most con venient place. Mr. Evans went to Chicago, where he met the capitalists willing to engage in the enterprise. An arrangement was made whereby the Chicago capitalists, providing the fran chise was granted, were to pay the Ha waiian government the sum of five hun dred thousand dollars per annum for the term ot twenty-five years. At the time the lottery bill was being agitated in the legislature, another bill, fully as odious to all decency and morals, known as the "Opium Bill," was brought up.' The queen's cabinet was composed of men who inspired confidence in the minds of the people, but they did not prove sufficient to check their head strong ruler. The legislature, like the Long Parliament in Cromwell's time, was in session until the more respec table members were compelled to leave for their homes to attend to their bus iness. They had scarcely left before the opium and lottery men, taking ad vantage of their absence, hurriedly passed the bills known as the "Opium" and "Lottery" bills. The decent and respectable people of Hawaii saw the danger that menaced them. The missionaries realized that the race just rescued from heathendom was about to be exposed to all the vices of civilization, and a land to-day filled with churches and school-houses', about to become the Monte Carlo of the Western. Hemisphere. Another class ot Americans looked on wnh alarm at the condition of aflairs those who had business interests at stake which were in jeopardy. A party of Christian ladies waited on the que. n and petitioned her not to sign the odious bills. Ii is said she wept with them; they prayed with her and left, assured she would veto the bills, but she signed them almost as soon as they were gone. The alarm spiead and increased. Meetings were held, and some discussed taking measures lo avert moral and fi nanciai ruin. The queen prorogued the legislature, dismissed her cabinet, and appointed in its place a set of ministers obnoxious to most of the respectable people of the islands. The excitement was now at Its height. This high-handed trampling oiwhe liberties of people, many of whom were born on the islands, was resented. A commit tee ol Safety was formed, and citizens began to arm themselves. The queen announced that she was going to give her people a new con stitution. The new constitution was written and signed, but she failed to get the signatures of all her cabinet. The document never came to light, but it is known that it provided for the disfranchisement of all white men not married to native women, and that only the property of the whites should be liable for taxes. The Committee of Safety organized and formed in companies. Arms were concealed in a hardware storeaudiOO the moraine of Jam if, i8gi, Mr. John Good, now Captain Good, Mr. Benner, and two others, started with them to the armory of the Committee of Safety. On Fort Street they were attacked by the police. Captain Good fired and wounded one man, and Mr. Benner knocked another down with the butt of his whip, and thus they es caped. In the meanwhile Mr. John L. Ste vens, United States Minister to Ha waii, who was away up to this time, re turned to Honolulu after the Commit tee of Safety had been formed. He is sued the following request to Captain G. C. Wiltse, of the United States crusier Boston: "Sir: In view of the existing critical circumstances in Honolulu, indicating an inadequate force, I request you to land marines and sailors fr'im the ship under your command for the protection of the United States Legation and United States Consulate, and to secure American 1 ife and property. "John L. Stevens. "Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary of the United States." Captain Wilise hail already anticipa ted the request of the Minister, and issued the following order: "Honolulu, Jan. 10, 1893. "L ectenant Commnader W. T. Swin burne. United States Naw, Execu tive Officer ofUkited States Cruis er Bost s, - -"Sir: You will take command of the battalion, and land in Honolulu for the purpose of protecting our legation, consu late, and the lives and property of Ameri can citizens, and to assist in preserving order. "Great prudence must be exercised by both officers and men, and no action taken that is not fully warranted by the condi tion of affairs and by the conduct of those who may be in inical to the treaty l ights of American citizens. "You will inform me at tho earliest pos sible moment of any change in the situa tion. "Very respectfully, "G. C. Wiltse. "Captain, United States Navy, Com manding United States Crusier Boston." The troops were landed, and during the day divided into small squads. A part were placed to guard the United States Legation, a small squad sent to the Consulate, and eight to the home of an American resident named Hop per. As the troops had no tents the Minister secured quarters for them from a royalist. There has probably been more whole sale lying, in print and out of print, about the action ot Minister Stevens and Captain Wiltse than about any other subject since the days of Anan ias. The day after the landing of the troops, the queen's cabinet called on Minister Stevens to ask the aid of the Urited S ales marines in sustaining the queen against the Provisional Gov ernment then in course of formation. Mi lister Stevens answered: "Gentlemen, these men were landed for one purpose only, a pacific pur pose, aud we cannot take part in any contest. I cannot use this force for sustaining the queen or anybody else." This remark was made and this as surance given before the Queen had been deposed, and her cabinet knew that the United .States troops would not interfere in the affair in any way. Thirty-two armed citizens of the Committee of Safety marched to the government building and took posses sion of it. The constitution had not been formally promulgated, and it is said, was never signed by all the cabi net. The ministers fled, the guard went to the police quarters, and the unfortunate queen was deserted by every one save her marshal, Mr. Wil son, who through all her adversities has remained her truest friend. It is said that Mr. Wilson warned her against an attempt to promulgate the new constitution. "If you do, it will be your ruin,"" he declared, "but I shall stand or till with you." If Mr. Wilson made this assertion, he kept his word. To his credit be it said he was the only frien.i of ihe queen who, in the hour of trial, displayed any pluck. But he had not a soldier or policeman to aid him, and thirty-two men seized the government. Hon. S. B. Dole, chiel justice of the Supreme Court, resigned his position when the trouble began and was made a member of the Committee of Safety, and later, on the organizatien of the Provisional Goverment became its president. After the failure of the effort to se cure annexation of t he islands lo the United States, and the defeat of ihe project to restore the q icen, ihe Pro visional Government became a perma nent government. A constitution was framed and Hon S. B. Dole selected as president for the term of six years. A wiser choice could not have been made. Mr. Dole is a brave, honora ble, conservative gentleman. He is a statesman beyond corruption, and, while dignified, is utterly devoid uf any of the silly pomposity which so often characterizes men who think themselves gre.i'.
