Native Use of Fish in Hawaii

By: Margaret Titcomb

Twenty years ago when Margaret Titcomb was finishing her manuscript for this book there was little concern that the oceans of the earth might be endangered. Without doubt contamination of the seas was occurring, but there was no real public awarenessno sense of threat. A deleterious mercury content had not yet been detected in the great billfish and tunas. There were fewer oil despoliations, and the dumping of chemicals and radioactive wastes had not yet reached a level ...

FISH, including shellfish, were the main protein-giving elements of the Hawaiian diet. Pig, dog, chicken and wild birds furnished some additional proteins but the comparatively small supply marked them more for the chiefs than the commoners use.

By: E. G. Swain

Vicar Whitehead failed in health after 23 years of work, and journey...

Anne's House of Dreams

By: L.M. Montgomery

Chapter 1: In the Garret of Green Gables. THANKS BE, I'm done with geometry, learning or teaching it, said Anne Shirley, a trifle vindictively, as she thumped a somewhat battered volume of Euclid into a big chest of books, banged the lid in triumph, and sat down upon it, looking at Diana Wright across the Green Gables garret, with gray eyes that were like a morning sky. The garret was a shadowy, suggestive, delightful place, as all garrets should be. Through the open win...

Mother, I should so like to have a great deal of money, said little Tom Fletcher one evening, as he sat on a low stool by his mother's knee. His mother was knitting busily by the firelight, and they had both been silent for some time. What would you do with a great deal of money, if you had it? Oh! I don't know—I would do a great many things. But should not you like to have a great deal of money, mother? persisted he. Perhaps I should, answered Mrs. Fletcher. I am like y...
