Aloha ino no,
Ka Moi Iolani,
Ua hala aku nei,
I ke ala hoi ole mai,
ROUND of 4 parts.
How sad for
The King Iolani,
He has passed,
On the path of no return,
[This kanikau for Kamehameha IV shows that even as far back as 1864, dirges took all sorts of forms!]

HAWAIIAN PINEAPPLE IS HIGHLY DESIRED AT THE EXPOSITION.
There is much desire for hala kahiki from Hawaii at the exposition being held in Seattle, because on the ship that just left Honolulu for San Francisco, five-hundred boxes of pineapple is being sent to be sold at the show grounds.
One hundred pineapples are being sold on the average each day, but it is believed that not everyone visiting has tasted the pineapple from Hawaii; and if they receive those added boxes of pineapple, it will supply the visitors for a good amount of time.
This great taking to of the pineapples from Hawaii at Seattle has become something for the pineapple planters to rejoice about, because they feel that that is the one place where people from all over the world can see the quality and the affordability of the pineapples of Hawaii which is foremost above the pineapples of other places.
From now on, the pineapple planters will prepare for orders, and they are able to supply large amounts of pineapples that will be desired.
