lost ho Rlvo It all away , the Sumtnnt Ulrl
Crfaln looms In the social horizon , outlined
nRiunit summer porches and green trees or
the imlllng sea , but wherever she appears
Iho fairest , most picturesque and most Inter
esting object around.
Emerging from her chrysalis statowlth
the heat of these Ronorant July days she has
burst forth from her silken cocoon a gay ana
glittering butlorn.v , wonderful to bohotd , full
of transformations and oluslvo enough , as
many an amateur masculine entomologist will
doubtless flnd out before the summer days
are dead. There are , of course , Summer
Olrls still In town , for thuro nro many vari
eties of her , and they may bo found In Hans-
com oark , or taking an airing these
torrid nights on the Farnau\street prom
enade or Journeying to Lnko Mauawa
for an ovonlng on the toboggan. Some are
still In the undeveloped stage , but In ovcry
class and clrclo from the girl of the factory
or store , to the heiress who will bo the bcllo
at Spirit Lake , Clour Lnko , or Asbury ParK ,
all who are not ulruady full Hedged butter
flies ate preparing to spread their wings.
It Is but a liltlo whllo since It was things
that wcro going on and now It Is people , and
how they are going on and In how many di
rections. The Summer Girl , of COUMO , is
not a rucluso and therefore the man who belongs -
longs to that BCIIUS Is not likely to llud hor.
As a rule her haunts are In the crowded
places of pleasure and uhorover the wild
bunt for funusoniont Is In progress. The
world. It scums , the crazy topsy turvoy
twentieth century world , must bo amused

nnvwhero this side of thn celestial Eden such
a thine n pcuco , any pluco that is free from

than the eyes , should bo mtislng.
It Is Emerson who stys that pcoplo should
bo taken in very small doses , and the pro-
scrip tioi. strlKes many as a good ono In tba
lummor time , but the great majority are alo-
pntnlolu their social toiiduncies and want

and aoubticss the Summer Ulrl , with h ° r
papa and mamma , ni ncnnls and abettors ,
has bad much to do with It. For , if you

far off wllawood , lol thcro Is a hotel full of

her , and though you might lly to the most
distant purl of the earth , yet would she como

The extreme boat of tbo pust week has
sent many a poor pupa , mamma and Summer

sldo resort and tbo town Is almost depop

At all our summer resorts by the sad sea
waves , under Iho whispering pines , In lake-
dotted vale , and on the mountain heights , the
women are out In force. They monopolize
every hotel piazza ; they are fojjnU in colonies
on tbo summer boarding house Inwn ; In
troops along the road-sides , with wild flowers
in their grasp ; and inside und outside of the
taees as tnoy bowl along in remote districts
where the railroad Is unheard of and exist
ence a day dream. At rusorts near
by tbo cities it Is true men nro
occasionally visible their periods of ap
pearance and disappearance coinciding
with the wcoicly settlement ; but many is
the rnsort that Is over an Adnmlcss Eden ,
and loud is the summer cry for a man. A
salubrious air is ull very well ; Una scenery
the thing ; rcoonligbl nights adorable ; but
ever paradise would grow monotonous if
there wore no men to Keep things going.
Slnco woman thus became the eroatost par

of the summer resort , say * the Philadelphia

was solved , but that of amusement not. Her

Tim depot is a tastefully designed little
building of granlto and Is almost opposite our
TtioGiilcsplo h nt present the largest hotel
bore. It Is also built of gray stone ( this
slono Is found right nero in these regions ) ,
und is well equipped for the comfort and con-
vonlouco of its guests. Electric llcht is used
throughout the building , tbo rooms are high
and airy , the cuUlno excellent und our genial
host , Mr. Glllespio , does all ho can to m.iko
bis guests foci perfectly nt nome. Another
hotel will ba onenod here about August 1
called the Evans. Tbu betel Is built upon
the silo of the old Minnokahta betel , which
was burned to tbo ground some time ago.
This hotel Is about Iho llnoat building 1 bavo
over seen ut any pleasure resort in the west ,
and 1 may safely say that even Oinalm would
bo proud to claim it for its own. Built of
rough hewn granite , seven stones in height ,
It looms up an imposing and bundtiomo struo- '
turo. This betel is situated vls-a-vls the
Glllespio and when ready for oc
cupancy will do much toward mak
ing Hot Springs a favorite northwestern
resort. Among the other hotoli , the Par-
tott , tbo Hot Springs and the Davis may bo
mentioned , whiuh uro all very welt kept and
full to overflowing.
Our main attraction hero Is the plunge
bath which , I ntu told , U considered ono of
the largest of Its kind In the United States.
It is 100 foot wide by 200 foot long. The
pluiiL-o is a basin of water covered by glass ,
or moro correctly speaking , a bouse built en
tirely of glass. Hera the water U of on
evenly warm temperature at all times of tbu
yoarlKl . The water Is as clear as crystal ,
so that you can drop a silver dollar to the
bottom and easily IInil It again. A largo gal
lery runs around the entire building for the
benefit of a poet a tors.

morning hours are spent and my readers can
not imagine bow wo nil enjoy it. Wo dlvo ,
