through , proclaiming in unmistakable
language that the summer time is over.und
the hoary winter , with his snow und
icy breath is about to bo ushered in.
Then begins the brilliant round of indoor -
door festivities , then opens up the season
of weddings , and balls , and parties , the
season of flirtation , of love-making and
conquest. The daily telegraph tells of
the emptying of the seaside hotels , and
every incoming steamer brings homo its
delegation of tourists from abroad. Soon
all will be homo again , and then society
