FRAGRANT MEMORY—In memory of the late Mrs. C. M. Cooke, who founded the Honolulu Academy of Arts 25 years ago, this group of Hawaiian women will sing and play “Haaheo Kilohana i ka Laʻi” at tonight’s opening of the Academy Members’ Annual Show from 8 to 10. The song was composed for Mrs. Cooke by Mary Jane F. Monatno. It was set to music by Mrs. Bina Mossman. Shown above are: left to right, Louise Akeo Silva, Flora Hayes, Julia Nui Hoopili; back row, Joanna Wilcox, Kuualoha Treadway and Bina Mossman.—Academy photo.

Editor Saturday Press:—A large column of smoke stills issues from Mauna Loa and the end of the three flows, which are seen very distinctly from here, prove that there is great activity at the source of the flows. Large numbers of the people of this place have visited them, and there is someone going almost daily, as it only takes about two hours to reach the flows nearest Hilo. It is generally conceded that the flow or flows must come to the sea unless it should change its present course) somewhere near Waiakea. Mr. Furneaux, the artist, has been making some fine views of the flows as seen at night. His pictures are very correct always. We may consider ourselves fortunate in having an artist on the spot. He will also visit old Kilauea which is quite active, as I was told this morning. We had a report a few days ago that there was nine cases of small-pox at Kona, but it was found to be not so. We have not had a single case in the district. No place in the islands, or perhaps in creation, is more healthy than this district. J. A. M.

Our master painter Mr. Furneaux hung his paintings of the volcanic crater at his office in Aliiolani Hale to show it to the public. This Wednesday, he has invited the Members of the Legislature to go and see his work. They are just so beautiful.
