THE HAWAIIAN STAR, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 11, 185):.-MX PAGES.
TWO JAPANESE MAIDS OF
How They Behaved at College, and Their
Later Fortunes in Mikado Land
Vassar slndt nts of '79 and '80 doubt
less remember ihe jtpMCM girls Sta
RMrtl and Singhi, who were sent over
by the Government along With half a
dozen mote little maids to be educated
in Antrim. It was at the time when
Japanese people were beginning to be
eager to acquire even thing that was
good in Western thought and Western
methods of life. I he boys were en
courigcd to visit Europe and America
and seek degrees in the si hools. 'I'he
girls, to the number of eight or ten,
were sent over at the expanse of the
Government. All of these girls were
of gentle birth, and several belonged to
the nobility. It is Interesting to learn
the result of the experiment from a
lady who recently visited these girls in
their Japanese homes, and who writes
about her visit to the Pall Mall
Qattttt At Vassat, Stamatz was
brilliant and exclusive, and very
beautiful. She took high honors in
English literature, wrote rhaiining es
says, and spoke English, with a slight
accent, of course, but bet vocabulary
and her use of it wuc. tliwless. She
was President of her class in her sopho
more year, and as a member of the
"Shakespeare," a club always confined
to the girls who wen first intellectually.
Sttmatl played a wonderful game ot
chess and excelled at whist.
Singhi was never President of any
thing, but everyone loved her. Shi
was invaluable at the fortnightly "candy
pulls," splendid on a sleigh ride, and
she spent half of her time in the in
firmary coddling sick girls. She got
through her examinations with eminent
respectability, spt ke vety broken Eng
lish, and wrote it stiffly but correctly.
Singhi was plain, dumpy and near
sighted, with a wee flat nose and in
every feature broadly Japanese.
Stamatz on her return to Japati
made a brilliant marriage. Her hus
band was an old man of high position,
great power and immense wealth. Hl--wife
has become a noted hostess, and
speaks French and English fluently, as
well as German and Italian. She re
ceived an old-time friend who called
upon her at her home with all her old
time graciousness. served tea and cake
from an English service, and talked as
entertainingly as ever about the books
she read in America, but her face grew
listless when Vassar was mentioned.
When the college paper for which in
her student days she wrote such clever
articles was spoken of she said she
believed they sometimes sent her a
copy. lint she wasn't sure. She had
not read a printed page of French or
English since her return to Japan
Evidently she had spent the ten years
in exile because the Mikado thought
it best. She wore the costume of Jap
anese women, save that her hair was
coiled in the simple Greek fashion and
her bronze slippers were of Parisian
make. A noted European called upon
the Countess Olyama, as she is now
known, with a Japanese gentleman,
The Jap bent seven times to the floor
when Stamatz entered. "Countess,"
the Englishman said, "if I bow as often
and as low as that I shall fall down,
but I am extremely glad to meet you.''
She smiled, and made his call delight
ful, but she never forgave him. Stam
atz was born to the purple, and she
loved it. She is four times a mother
and lour times a stepmother.
Singhi lives in a funny little house,
pureiv Japanese, and is the wife of a
lieutenant in the navy. The jolly little
woman has not changed a bit. She
seized her old fritnd by one hand, her
friend's husband by the other. She
had never seen the husband or heard
of him, but she instinctively knew who
he must be, and adopted him in her
little motherly way. She had forgotten
most of her imperfect English, and
at first the two friends could barely
understand each other. But she over
whelmed the visitor with questiol s
about everything and everybi dy' they
had known in their school days. She
sent for her five little children and they
bobbed ipieer little courtesies with their
queer little bodies, and ran away
laughing. The only suggestions 1 f
Europe in the little bit of a home were
three old books and a box of cigars,
which the hostess brought out for the
gentleman with her gleeful laugh. Hut
nevertheless the Empress has founded
a gills' college in Japan, and she
(Singhi) is professor of the piano.
