THE HAWAIIAN STAR, FKIDAY, OCTOBER L'O, r.WH. SIX PAOBS.
A POPULAR FRENCH NOVELIST.
Something About M. Pnnl Doui-get and III
Vlilt to Tbll Country.
Paul Bourgct, thcFrmoh novelist, whose
"Coamnpoli" created something of a lit
erary sensation here upon itspubllrntion In
English last win
ter, tvns received
with open nrnis by
tiievcry t Iptoram
of AtftMrlOM "so
ciety" when be ar
rived In tins conn
try rerently. This
la quite proper and
as it should lw for
Paul I an ex
younu rnan who
wear !'. n g 1 1 s h
clot he and i inon-CK-Ie
and is thought
In I'.iris to be as
part, inn Ki.Kr.
treat an aiilonja
lilac as t be swellest of New York dudes.
He entile over to visit the World'- fair and
Ineldi niallyo gather "impressions" for a
new Ixxik w hich he Inl ends to publ ish when
In-Hoes back, and it is well for our good
name that he should receive Ihosn impres
sions among Ottr very best people.
When it IB Understood that M. Boiirget
is a novelist of t he modern l-'renc h realistic
school and that he devotes his literary
taleutsto what be himself tails "the an
alytical novel of passion," It will be seen
at once how seriously embarrassing it
would prove for u -if ho got his impres
sions from the wrong kind of people. It is
far better that he should while among us
live exclusively wilh people who have no
vices, but only wealth anil high living and
nice houses and "good form." M. Bourget
is used to all these things at home -since
he became famous, llefore that he had
gome hard lines in Bohemia after his father
threw him off because he wnntcd to be a
poet and not a mathematician. But hehas
put off the influences of those days along
with the careless atttreand longhair which
he then affected, and now his manner is
faultlessly cold, calm and polished, with
out a trnit of self consciousness or embar
rassment and his raiment the extreme of
M. Bourget's method of composition is
peculiar. As he says, "I hear stories, di
gest them and then construct my own
story." This results in a series of compos
ite pictures which he believes to be types
and whlrh the followers of his cult are
willing to accept as such. lie says he fjot
the information about Louisiana on w hich
he built the character of Lydia Malt land
in "Cosnmpolis" from the correspondent
of a Xew York newspaper in Home, which
is perhaps a very gi od w ay to get data for
a character in a work of Action, though it
is hard to reconcile it with another state
ment that he loves to live amid the scenes
and in the atmosphere he Is describing.
Perhaps he will explain the discrepancy in
the lectures he is announced to deliver be
fore be returns to Franco.
THE PRESIDENT'S PHYSICIAN.
Dr. Bryant Has an Excellent Professional
Reputation anil Avoids Notoriety.
Dr. Joseph D. Bryant. President Cleve
land's family physician, enjoys a distinc
tion somewhat similar to that which used
to be ascribed in Rome to the pope's con
fessor. He isthe president's intimate friend
as well us his medical adviser, and goes on
fishing trips with his Illustrious patient or
writes professional prescriptions for him
with equally- happy facility. It has more
than once been hinted that he prescribed
these fishing trips quite us much for his
own benefit as for that of the patient, but
that cannot be true. It would be "unpro
fessional," and Dr. Bryant never forgets
professional tiiqmtte und amenities, us re
put ers who attempt to Interview him in
variably find out.
It is a little singular that Dr. Bryaut'
nanie should have Ix-come best known lo
the public as that of the president's physi
cian, but it is due entirely to his habit of
veiling himself and his work from the non
professional gaze. Had he w ished it, the
newspapers would gladly have given him
columns of space on more than uue occa
sion, when they were forced to be contented
with the casual meiitiou of his name, for he
has long been eminent in his profession and
has huld prominent official position! in
which he might have attracted onsidera
ble attention to himself had he so desired.
But that is not his way.

visiting surgeon to St. Vincent's hospital
since 18S7. lie is also consulting surgeon
to a number of medical institution- and a
very active, though unobtrusive, member
of a great many medical societ ies, besides
being the author of a standard work on
Operative surgery. He ranks among the
best obstetricians in New York, and his
general practice is estimated to be worth
125,000 a year. He attended Mrs. Cleve
land when Baby Ruth was born.
Dr. Bryant is a veteran of the Seventy
first New York regiment and was com
missioned major and surgeon as long ago
as 1873. Ten years later (iovernor Cleve
land appointed him surgeon general of the
state, and he filled the same position under
Governors Hill and I- lower. In 1887 Mayor
Hewitt uppointed bun a heulth commis
sioner of New Y ork city, a position that en
tailed no end of hard work and responsibil
ity, from which at last he voluntarily re
