More on auction of Kauai treasures, 1873.

A REAL CURIOSITY.—We noticed in the window of Whitney’s Bookstore recently, a real curiosity of the olden time, being the feather helmet (mahi-ole) of Kaumualii, the last King of Kauai. It is a very rare specimen of the ancient handiwork of these Islands, and ought to be purchased by the government, for the museum for the establishment of which the Legislature made a provision last summer.
