Liliu’s birthday reported in far away Minnesota, 1912.

Birthday of Former Queen.

Honolulu, Sept. 2.—Former Queen Liliuokalani, who entered upon her seventy-fifth year today, held a large public reception in honor of the anniversary. During the day she received presents and messages of congratulations from friends and followers in all parts of the islands.

[Although they made a math error (which it seems I am prone to as well), being this was her 74th birthday, it is interesting to see that this made the front page in Minnesota.]
