bridgeWells. He was following my cab fromthe station, and was unbroken. I hadthe greatest difficulty in curing his wild-ness at starting, and often have I workedhim all day with one leg tied up to hisneck. Once broken, he was perfection.Now the spaniels occupation, like thepomters, is well nigh gone, and he isseldom used except in rough countriesand for hedgerow shooting. Sagacity and faithfulness in a spanielare also its predominant features. A hostof stories can be told by way of illustra-tion. There is an old story of a spanielbelonging to a nobleman of the Medicifamily that always attended his masterstable, took from him his plates and broughtothers, carried wine to him in a glass upona salver, which it held in its mouth with-out spilling. He would also hold thestirrup with his teeth while his mastermounted his horse. The dancing dogs attheatres in old days were chiefly spaniels,and went through all sorts of tricks, suchas storming a fort amid the firing of 94 OUTING FOR NOVEMBER.

COCKER SPANIEL, GTPPING SAM OWNED BY MR. FARROW, guns and the fumes of gunpowder, thewounded and dead being carried off bytheir companions, while some feignedlameness as wounded, and then graduallyrecovered, amid the joyful barking oftheir companions who had escaped in thedeadly melee. I could multiply instancesad infinitum of what a spaniel is capableof doing for his master. And probably,although one important section of myreaders may be shocked at the quotationof the following nursery rhyme, I onlyclaim it to be true of the first and lastsubject of it: A spaniel, a child and a walnut tree, The more 3ou beat em the better they be. Cowper was probably the greatest loverof natural history among our poets, andhe thus describes his favorite spaniel: Though once a puppy, and though Fop by name,Here moulders one whose bones some honor claim ;No sycophant, although of spaniel race.And though no hound, a martyr to the chase ;Ye pheasants, rabbits, leverets rejoice.Your haunts no longer echo

Heliotropium anomalum var. argenteum

Image by D.Eickhoff
Hinahina or Hinahina kū kahakai
Boraginaceae (Borage family)
The variety is endemic to the Hawaiian Islands (Locally common on Niʻihau, Kauaʻi, Oʻahu, and Molokaʻi, but seemingly rare on Maui and Hawaiʻi Island. It may have formerly occurred on Lānaʻi and Kahoʻolawe)

The Hawaiian name hinahina refers to gray or silverish gray foliage of this plant.

When the leaves of koʻokolau (Bidens spp.) were not available, the leaves of hinahina kū hakai were brewed as a tea and believed to be a tonic by early Hawaiians. Dried leaves were used in treatment of diabetes. Too, the leaves along with alena (Boerhavia spp.) were pounded together, water added, and drunk for curing pāʻaoʻao (childhood disease, with physical weakening), ʻea (thrush), and naeʻoikū (severe asthma).

The fragrant white flowers and the succulent leaves were used, providing a long-lived attractive lei by the ancient Hawaiians.

Today, it is still used as a beautiful natural and native component of haku, though the readily available non-native Spanish moss (Tillandsia unsneoides), also called hinahina, is usually substituted.

Hinahina kū hakai was adopted in 1923 as the official flower and lei material for Kahoʻolawe, which is strange since it is not naturally found there, though it may have been in the past.

Etymology
The generic name Heliotropium is derived from the Greek helios, sun, and trope, turning, in reference to an erroneous belief that the flowers to turn to face the sun; leaves and flowers that do this are referred to as heliotropic.
The specific epithet anomalum is from the Latin anomala meaning extraordinary or abnormal.
The subspecies name argenteum means silvery.
