Mrs. Claghorn - Princess Like-Like - who recently sacrificed herself in order to appease the devil who is supposed to have caused the volcanic eruption at Mauna-Loa, was a great lover of flowers, and her death in this pathetic manner is sad to think of. The religion of the Sandwich Islanders demanded a sacrifice of a Royal Princess, and Mrs. Claghorn offered herself. Her sacrifice according to their religion was by starvation. She lingered twenty days, and was placed in the Royal Mausoleum on the 28th of February. Singularly enough, as foretold by the priests, the volcano ceased to flow on the day she died.

It is flowing again, and the demon, Pele, we suppose is demanding another victim. We only hope it will not be a good flower-lover like Mrs. Claghorn next time.
