Adds distinction or "class" to your correspondence.
It isn't only the business firm or professional man
who now raises his correspondence above the
mediocre through aid of the printer's art.
Just your name and address in neat lettering at top
or corner of the sheet will add an individual touch
that at once raises your letter above the dead level
The additional cost per letter is trifling.
But of course much depends on the printing.

An Example of the Military Caste
Arnold Bennett, the novelist and
magazine writer, tells of his utter
loneliness amidst the ruins of Ypres
where he was left for a Bhort while
hy his army escort to sketch a de
molished cathedral. He had strict
orders to remain In the same loca
tion, he writes. Then, continuing,
"I was, therefore, a prisoner in the
place, condemned to solitary confine
ment. I ardently wanted my compan
ions to come hack. . . . Then I
heard echoing sounds of voices and
footsteps. Two British soldiers ap
peared round a corner and passed
slowly along the square. In the im
mensity of the square they made very
small figures. I had a wish to ac
cost them, but Englishmen do not do
those things, even in Ypres. They
glanced casually at me; I glanced
casua'ly at them, carefully pretending
that the circumstances of my situation
were entirely ordinary."
Will some one be so kind as to in
form us why Bennett could not accost
two of his countrymen, if he felt a
desire to do so. even if he was In
London? Is it, as we suspect, because
the two soldiers wore the uniforms
of private soldiers?
If this Is so if the military caste
system of England Is carried out to
such an extent that a civilian war
correspondent cannot speak to two of
the fighting men of his country on the
battle front without loss of dignity
then it is no wonder that England has
had to consider conscription to fill
the ranks of her regiments.
It would certainly take a double A
brand of patriotism to make one will
ing to serve as a private, when one
has to humiliate ones self to a posi
tion where precedent rules that your
superiors must treat you as though
you were hardly humane.
For the sake of our friendship for
the British, we hope that we ar"e
wrong in analysing Bennett's state
ments, and that someone will show
us he had an entirely different reason
than fear of overstepping the snob
bish dictates of the caste system,
when he did not speak to the two
soldiers at Ypres. Hilo Tribune.
Land conditions in Hawaii, as com
pared with those of the mainland,
are a scandal and a disgrace, and we
believe that Judge Stuart is pursuing
the proper cause in having his indivi
dual grievance brought into court, and
by this means securing attention to
the difficulties and obstacles encount
ered hy the man In search of a home
stead In Hawaii. The basic cause,
however, of all our troubles lies in
the Organic Act itself, and until an
amendment Is made to this Act, plac
ing all our lands under the control of
the U. S. general land ofllce, it is hard
ly likely that a satisfactory solution
of the question will be reached.
The land question In Hawaii has
been an ever-recurring source of ir
ritation and controversy. The Demo
cratic party of Hawaii has unremit
mitingly fought for repeal of our ini
quitous land laws, and now that the
question has been so forcibly brought
to the front, a united effort should
be made by the party, as well as by
all liberal minded Republicans in the
Territory, to have the Organic Act
amended so that the land laws may
be administered from Washington.
