I'poti tho minds nf such a people as
tho Il.iwaiians were, while under their
indent form of religion, it. was but nat
ural that superstition should gain a
rooted hold. The most curious mid ef
fective belief to which they wero made
snbject was that a man can lie prayed to
death a belief that survives among the
natives to tho present day. Forlm suc
cess of tho tragical death prayer it was
necessary to obtain some hair or a piece
of finger nail of tho intended victim. A
priest wns then employed to use incanta
tion nnd prayer for his destruction. Al
ways informed of thn doom that the
priest was invoking upon him, tho vic
tim generally pined away nnd died.
Thero is a story current that an Eng
lishman in the service of Kamehmuclia
I, hnving incurred thn displensnro of a
priest, tho latter proceeded to ' remove"
him by tho death-prayer process. The
Anglo-Saxon, however, set up nn opposi
tion altar in derision, mid jokingly pro
claimed that ho intended to pray thn
priest to death. Alarmed nt tho threat
und overwhelmed nt the failure jf his
own incantations, tho sorcerer died, prov
ing by his death his faith in his religion.

A happy wedlock ia a long falling in
love. I know young persons think love
belongs only to the brown huir and
plump, ronnd, crimson cheek. So it dix's
for its beginning, just as Mount Wash
ington begins at Boston bay. But the
golden marriage is a part of love which
the bridal day knows nothing of. Youth
ia the tassel and silken flower of love;
age ia the fnll corn, ripe and anlid iu the
ear. Beantiful is the uiomiug of love,
with ita rjronhcrii. ei-ii.w,, vi..i..f .:if-
