Ban Francisco Correspondence:
Much ns has bcvn written concerning
Hawaiian scenery, it is a subject about
which literature can never be exhaust­
ed. People of all nations and of all
climates are still continuous in their
praise of the tropical verdure and
scenery that can be found In the midst
of the Pacific Ocean. There lias been
resident in the Islands for some time
a Scotchman—Mr. Charles H. Ewart,
of Dalbeattie, Scotland—whose soul
was moved by the beautiful vision
which he describes in the following
poetic language:
“We are in an amphitheater of moun­
tains, rising to an altitude of 3,000 and
4,000 feet, with a glowing raiment of
leaf and blossom from base t,o summit,
save In spots where the red earth [>eeps
through the radiant curtain, as a foil
to the Hames of Iridescent greens, and
the fire of the blossoms that have en­
folded the hills In their shining em­
brace. Here and there a pinnacle
of the smaller industries. "Ex Austra­
lia: Peaches, plums, oranges, apples,
grapes, nectarines, lemons, celery,
cauliflowers, potatoes, cheese, roll but­
ter, crabapples, quinces, onions. “These
are imported from a country over two
thousand miles distant.
The Hawaiian Inspector Genernl of
where no plant has found grace to
grow, stands out a purple silhouette
against the soft blue of a topaz-tinted
sky. Caves and fissures are cleft in the
steeps of these mountain walls, and
torn from the nearly perpendicular
cliffs which surround it. alone and
apart, stands a pillar of stone twenty
yards wide at the base, nearly a thou­
sand feet high, and pointing ‘Godward
through the blue,’ like the spire of
some mighty cathedral. This monolith
carved and fashioned by some bygone
convulsion of nature when the hills
‘glared at heaven through folds of fiery
hair,’ is swathed In a glorious garment
of green and gold, chequered with the
rose and the azure of the bells of the
convolvuli that dangle from the cor­
don of vines that engird it.”
The valley in the early morning may
be clear of mists, and a soft mountain
breeze murmuring among the foliage,
but at times It is filled with the noise­
less ebbing and flowing of white vapor
borne in from the sea. and out of this
shimmering sea of mist the towers and
minarets of the mountains arise clothed
with mosses and ferns, and draped
with garlands of eddying vines, that
cover the faces of the cliffs, and droop
over the edges of giddy precipices in
“cataracts of bloom,” till they are swal­
lowed up In the “White mists that
choke the vale, and blot the sides of
the bewildered hills.”
Although sugar cane Is Indigenous
In Hawaii, little attempt was made tn-
ward its cultivation until 1835. when
a plantation was started at Kauai, and
several sugar mills were built. These
mills were worked by the aid of mules
and oxen, and the process was slow
and laborious. Wliat a contrast to the
mills of the present day. where the
cane Is taken and made Into crystals
of sugar. There is no royal road to
wealth In Hawaii, and any one who
anticipates such a condition had bet­
ter stay away. No man can go about
blindfolded and pick up dollars in the
Schools, Mr. Henry Schiller Townsend,
speaking of the educational system of
the islands, says that the population of
the Hawaiian Islands is small and the
school system is necessarily small. The
total population exceeds one hundred
thousand slightly, of which fourteen
thousand were attending school at the
end of last year. Ten thousand were
in the public schools. Fifty-six per
cent, of all the children attending
school at that time were of native Ha­
waiian descent, and twenty-five per
cent, were Portuguese. The remain­
ing nineteen per cent, represents a
large number of nationalities.
lie opened shortly. These are not es­
sentially different from schools of sim­
ilar grade in America. A regular pub­
lic high school Is In process of organi­
zation in Honolulu, the greater num­
tier of the departments being already In
working order. The endowed institu­
tion known as Oahu College has long
offered full preparation for any col­
lege In America, and many of its grad­
uates have entered leading American
colleges on advanced standing.
But the English-speaking children do
not enjoy a monopoly of the privileges
of education beyond the common
school course.
The Kamehameha
schools, with their magnificent equip­
ment and no less magnificent endow­
ment, are open to those of native Ha­
waiian blood and to no others. Man­
ual training and Industrial education
are leading features of these schools,
and few similar schools In America are
so well equipped for work on these
The natives are very found of music.
The guitar on account of the softness
of its tone, is their favorite instrument.
The royal Hawaiian band, which a few
years ago made a tour through the
United States, was conqiosed of native
Ilawaiians, all of whom were accom­
plished musicians.
Working a Trick on Conductors
Whereby He Clears $3.95.
To an honest man it would appear
that the field of bunko had been pretty
well worked out; but every little while
some Ingenious and crooked gentleman
contrives a new method of making oth­
er persons pay for his ingenuity. Just
at present the street railway men are
looking for the deviser and operator of
a very slick game of which the cat
conductors are made victims. The re­
quisite for this game Ls $G (a $5 bill
and a $1), and its working does not re­

caught, can always declare that ft was

The English language is practically
the only language as a means of com­
munication or instruction in the Ha­
waiian schools. And here lies the dif­
ficulty of the work. Just imagine the
teachers of California trying to teach
the children of that State through the
Arabic language. Yet English Is prob­
ably as difficult for the children of
Hawaii as Arabic for those of Califor­
nia. History, literature, natural sci­
ence and even arithmetic, must lie

the conductor a $5 bill. Now. no con­
ductor wants to give up all his change
and leave himself short, and no con­
ductor will take a $5 bill If there Is any
way of getting out of it. Therefore, he
looks at the crook’s bill and says:
“Is that the smallest you've got?”
“I think it Is,” says the crook. “Walt
a minute and I'll see.”
Crumping the bill up in his hand—the
game Is usually played with crisp new
bills, as they crumple more obviously—
he goes through his pockets In search
of change. Not wanting to find any,
he doesn't find any.
“Sorry, but that’s all I’ve got,” he
Thereupon the conductor, with in­
ward wrath, seizes the crumpled bill,
jams ft into his pocket, and gives
change. Not the original crumpled bill,
however, for during the search for
change he has contrived to substitute
a new $1 bill, equally crumpled, for

out of ten, doesn't think to unroll and

seen to be $5. At the end of the day's

Dox Drawn Into Ambush Tricks to
Make Away with ll Bodner.
No cuter animal Is found in the West
than the coyote. The coyote is to tile
plainsman what a fox is to an Eastern
farmer, only the coyote Is more In evi­
dence. Forest and Stream tells about
a dog that had its principal sport chas­
ing and otherwise worrying coyotes,
and was led into ambush by one coyote
and then set upon by several other of
the prairie wolves and almost done to
“About 9 o’clock one night,” the pa­
per says, "one of the coyotes came to
the kitchen door and howled aggr:?
vatlngly at the dog, which thereupon
set after the coyote full tilt. The coy­
ote fled around the house, down to tile
corral and around the blacksmith shan­
ty, the dog yelping after. Behind the
shanty wen1 other coyotes, six or seven
of them, and all of them made for the !
dog in a way that made It feel lonely. '
The ranchman heard the fight ami the
dog's howls of pain, and, grasping a
rifle, started that way on the run, yell­
ing as he went. The coyotes each took
a farewell nip and fled, leaving a sore
dog behind. Since then the dog has
not been so much Interested as on for­
mer occasions in coyotes. It follows
single coyotes vigorously, but the ap­
pearance of another sends it back as
fast as it can run.”
The coyote likes badger flesh very
much, but one coyote is not equal to a
badger In a fight; consequently, the
coyote, when It meets a badger, has to
resort to stratagem till aid arrives. The
manner In which It does this, according
to the sportsman’s paper. Is interest­
“A few weeks ago,” the writer says,
“as I was riding along I saw a coyote
and a badger. The coyote seemed to
l>e playing with the badger. He would
prance around it, first as if to bite it,
then run off a little ways, the badger
following, evidently very angry. When
the badger saw me It ran into its hole,
while the coyote went off forty or fifty
yards ami lay down, evidently knowing
I had no gun with me. The coyote's
device was evidently to tease, and so
keep the badger interested till another
coyote happened along, when the bad­
ger would have been killed.”----- New

difficulty In regard to the opening nov­
el, in consequence of which the new
periodical was on the eve of postpone­
ment, a serious contretemps In the face
of Its extensively advertised date of
publication. The day before a decision
was necessary Miss Braddon heard of
the difficulty and offered to write the
“But even If you were strong enough

reply, “there Is no time.”
“How long could you give me?” ask-
id the aspiring authoress.
“Until to-morrow morning.”
“At what time to-morrow morning?”
“If the first installment were on my
breakfast table to-morrow morning,”
he replied. Indicating by his tone and
manner the utter impossibility of the

Among the discomforts of life and the
fullness thereof, reaching to every family,
there is that which cun so easily mitigate or
entirely cure, the wonder is why we endure
and suffer so much. From big [xiius to
little aches, which arc the wear and tear of
the physical structure of man. there are
always remedies good, better and best. The
choice should always be for the best as the
surest and the cheajiest. In chronic or
acute suffering with rheumatism,neuralgia,
sciatica or lumbago, or with the minor ail­
ments of sprains and bruises, or of soreness
and stiffness, the efficacy of St. Jacobs Oil
and the fullness thereof in so tnanv com­
plete ami perfect cures make it stand out as
the best remedy for pain. Why then should

aggravations ot discomforts and pains are
