KO te moutere o Ruhia e ingoa nuitia ana mo tona pai me tona momona, e ki ana i te nakahi, kaha ki te whakamate tangata. I muamua ake nei tera tetahi mate nui i pa ki tetahi kaumatua mangumangu me ona tamariki, i te wero o tetahi o enei nakahi whakamataku. Kua mahuetia atu te mahi o tenei kauma- tua, kua hoki ia ki tona whare i te ahiahi. rongo ana ia i te hihii a kua mataku. Hohoro tonu tona te peke whakamuri me te oma, ki a ia kahore ia i whara i tu ranei i te nakahi e moe ana i te ara a kua rere atu ra ki a ia. Aue! kua pohauhau ia. Kihai i roa tona noho ki te kainga, ka pangia ia e te mate, a, roa iti atu ka mate ia i te paihana, te matau kau nga mea ora ki tana tu kei hea ranei. Ki etahi motu maha o Inia ki te Rato ko nga mangumangu he iwi rawakore, ko te THE POISONED BOOT.
THE Island of St. Lucia, which is cele- brated for its beauty and fertility, is however, infested by serpents of the most venomous kinds. Not long since a calamity befel a poor old negro and his family, caused by the sting of one of these fearful creatures. The old man had left his daily work, and was returning to his home late in the even- ing, when suddenly a dreadful hissing alarmed him. He sprang back and fled, supposing he had escaped without being stung by the serpent which had lain coiled upon the path, and sprung at him as he approached. Alas! he was deceived. Shortly after reaching home alarming symptoms began to make their appearance, and soon he succumbed to the effects of the poison, none knowing, however, where he had been wounded.
