Americans In European Society.
Americans fail to realize that Europeans
recognize no social or class distinction in
this country. Our poople know that thi
Is a republic, that it has been a republic-
for more than a century and that the pnn
cinal doctrine upon which the entire nation
al fabric Is founded is that of universal
equality. They cannot, therefore, under
stand that there should beany kind of class
distinction or gradations of society. In
their eyes all Americans are equal, and the
question as to what coterie or clique their
American acquaintances belong to in this
country weighs but very little with the
grand monde in Europe. It is utterly lm
material to them whether their American
acquaintance has ever had a grandfather or
not, or If he had, who his grandfather was.
They do not care one brass farthing whether
he or she happens to be a born million
aire," or a "made millionaire," and they
take their American friends purely and en
tirely on their individual merits, altogether
irrespective of the social status and pres
tige they may enjoy on this side of the At
lantic. But once an American has succeeded in
getting himself accepted by the best Euro
pean Bociety his position is really a most
delightful one, since he is regarded as be
yond the pale of class distinction and is al
lowed a freedom and a latitude which
would never be accorded to any native, no
matter how high his or her rank. Not
withstanding all that is claimed to the
contrary, there are relatively very few
Americans who may really be said to have
penetrated the inner circles of European

The Face That Attracts.
A clever Boston author, with whom Arlo
Bates talked about the artists' festival, to
which all the world went in costume of the
time of the renaissance, remarked that it
was Impossible to get over the habit of
looking at the faces of the persons present
and of neglectiug to examine t heir costume
unless with an effort to turn the attention.
"It is simply because we are so accus
tomed to finding the costume, and especial
ly the costume of men, so uninteresting that
we never think or loosing at it, one re
marked. "I am not sure," the author re
turned, "that it doesn't go a good deal
deeper than that, and that there is not a
profound psychological reason there. The
face is the thing which expresses the mind,
and the whole tendency of civilization If
toward the keener appreciation of the men
tal side of being.
"We have suppressed costume in mun be
cause we are more interested iu his face,
and we do not care to be distracted from it
That is only one phase of the process ol
evolvinu the appreciation of the mental
We do not, as a matter of fact, care for
clothes In this ag -I mean as a race. There
are of course exceptions, and there Is still
personal vanity, as there always must be.
It is possible to get up this sort of a show,
not because anybody is greatly interested
lu the costume of others, but because each
is willing to admire himself and to allow
others to admire him."

The Star is a new paper and has introduced
Californian methods of journalism into Hawaii, where,
before its advent, the Massachusetts newspaper tra
ditions of 1824 held sway. It has three prime objects:
To support the cause of Annexation of Hawaii
to the United States and assist all other movements,
political, social or religious, which are of benefit to
these Islands and their people.
To print all the news of its parish without fear
or favor, telling what goes on with freshness and
accuracy, suppressing nothing which the public has
the right to know.
To make itself indispensable to the family circle
by a wise selection of miscellaneous reading matter.
As a commentator the Star has never been
accused of unworthy motives.
As a reporter the Star has left no field of local
As a friend of good government the Star has
been instant in service and quick to reach results.
As an advertising medium the Star, from the
week of its birth, has been able to reach the best
classes of people on all the Islands.
