THE BOOTH CAPK.This curious specimen of more modern Hawaiian feather work is almost the onlyexample left on these islands of the use of green feathers for decoration of ahuula. Itbelongs to Mrs. C. W. Booth of Pauoa, Honolulu, and she traces it back to her grand-father Baker. Mrs. Booth has also a fine collection of lei and other remains of oldHawaii.

The narrow lower border is green and seems to be mixed of native011 (Psittacirostra psittacea) and the feathers of some foreign parrot of which there werea number flying free on Hawaii in the second quarter of the last century (W. T. B.).Above all this comes the extraordinary color scheme consisting of three circles of aboutsix inches diameter with two semicircles of the same size, their diametrical edge form-ing the upper part of the front borders. These circles hang from a deep black bandof 00 feathers which also extends down half way between them and is terminatedabove by a yellow neck-band. The semicircles are of crimson feathers of the apapane(Himatione sanguined), with a circumferential border of parrot-green feathers;
