The Coming ot
. , the New Hotel
Edward Hungerford In Harpor's Weekly.
It Is a pretty poor sort, of an American
town that cannot boast n new hotel Iti
these days. It may cling to old tradi
tions In ono case, nnd in another try to
capltallzo its hopes, but It Is sure to
boast on Its main street somewhere u
palatial sort of -n box-like sky-scraper.
You may go back to Bllssvllle-and Juat
let Blissful be about nny typical middle
sized city In the lapd-and recall pretty
distinct memories, pleasant or other
wise, of the hostelry that held you them
twenty years before. It may havo ben
a dingy, barn-like affair, echoing !n
solitary grandeur all the black decora
tlon and ' furniture horrors of the Vic
torian age, or It may havp been, nnd
rarely was. a comfortable old ark. with
low ceilings and snapping open-wood
wood fires, with a landlord who was a
landlord to greet you when you stepped
from outer cold Into Its homelike at
mosphere. But those old fellows the Congress
hotels and the Nationals, and .the
Americans that used to be sprinkled
across tho land arc nearly all "gone, or
else reduced to utter degradation In their
old age. Today each Bllssvllle all the
way across the land boasts loudly of Its
new hotel and looks disdainfully upon
tho old. Tho Bllssvllls citizen who meets
you at the train calls your attention to
Its unshrinking magnificence ns you ap
proach from afar. "The very pearl of
metropolitan elegance." ho says slowly,
thinking ot, bin own stockholdings In the
thing. "It's .the Waldorf of this end of
the state." When you come Insido the
now Hotel Bllssvllle, where the Interior
decorator has permitted his passions to
play unbridled, nnd have gasped your
awe at the gorgeousness of artificial
marbles and hasty murals, you are .per
mitted to delve still further Into the
wonders of this Bupreme wonder. There
may bo a roof-garden and there "Is surely
a grill a somewhat crowded and un
ventllated cellar Into which Bllssvllle
madly crowds after an evening at thei
show, to Indulge In champagne and
lobster manners 'nnd order beer and
rarebits, while a raspy band plays poor
music poorly from a suffocating llttlo
perch over In the corner Just under tho
celling. Bllssvllle Is dining out. Tb be
more exact. ' 'Bllstvlllo Is beginning to
dine out. It has already acquired thn
restaurant and club habit for lunch.
Twenty years ngo the chief arteries of
the town wcro filled nt noon with men
coming to and from their dinners. To
day most persons In American towns
of more than 10,000 population have
shifted their heavy mcnl from noon till
night and eat a light or nn expensive
lunch down town. ,
Tnkn anv tvnli-nl Bllsaville. Its own
American house, which, with Its stuffy
parlors, Its tessellated marble floors, nnd
it. tnVnmir If nr'ntpunup carvings, all
once regarded as nothing less than archi
tectural triumph. Is today descended rrom
the high' pinnacle' of local esteem. The
new hotel, with Us castilo soap marbles
In Its lobby, the roof gorden and the grill,
ns nlready described, Is now the town's
chief burst of pride. Probably Bllssvllle
has all but bankrupted Itself In tho erec
tion of the. palace it generally docs but
for a brief ho'ur ot triumph It has a Joy
ous sense that it Is a degrco ahead of
its rival, and that, to Its civic mind, Is
worth several tons of worthless hotel
With the coming of the new type of
hntel there has nlBO disappeared tho so-
called "American plan," the famous
three-tlmes-a-day gorge that was the de
light of every hungry man tacking his
way acrosB the land, nt an old-fashioned,
hln cost of living. In the place
of the semicircle of canary bath tubs with
little dabs of vegetables and the menu
"groaplng" under .seventeen different
kinds ot meats and vegetables and eleven
nf nto nml of cakes, has come the es
thetic "European plan," over the card ot
which you prick your way with an Infinite
care, hoping to plan a meal that will not
.more than triple tho cost of one under
tho old plan.
The commercial traveler, with his ex
pense account, a not very expansive
thing, "has watched the passing of the
nlan" with Ill-concealed ro-
BTet Houses that consider him as a fac
tor In their yearly earning account some
times modify their Eurppean plan rulings
to suit his more slender purse. They
have "club breakfasts" nnil various forms
of table d'hote luncheons and dinners, to
suit his necessities.
But on the other side of the- fence there
Bit tight tho biggest ot'the newer houses
In thn lnrcer towns', and these are not
condescending to nny truces. These make
little compact of any sort witn me oajo
nirt in hntel.kceDlng. A great modern
house in New York has banished so dis
tinctly an American dish as stcan irom
i Mil. r.f. faro: several of them havo
Jong since placed the ban on pie. Simple
dishes are. In their disfavor. A.n Imported
legion of sauce-pan artists shows great
proficiency in remodellngs and remaklngs
even a. scrawny bird that has "hung a

of the house bribo the head waiters to
secure It for them. As a star dish It
may go upon the menu cards at Ji p. p.
The "P. P." means that the comfortable
large portions with which the. European
plan first Ingratiated itself upon Ameri
can hearts no longer exists, and woe be
to the thrifty diner who tries to mako
a single portion piece out for two. That

the sea the personality and charm of the
hoetelrles of tho continent from which
they come. Unfortunately the first of our
now order ot great hotels were built In
the city of New York; unfortunately, be
cause the narrow squares and .the high
prloea of Manhattan real estate have
evolved a peculiarly cramped type of
building. While the typo of hotel .archi

stood upon end la a necessity In New
York, It l not a necessity ,n m09t other
American cities. But almost all the others
bl our American cttbxi have followed New
Vork blindly In this regard, and there Is
a hideous monotony or packing box hotels
all the way across the land, from one
ocean to the other, from Canada to Mex

American towns posess in rare degree Is
reflected In their great new hotels. Thcbe

THE IRON HORSE.
B. & O. Employes Magazine.
Behold a steed with thews ot iron.
A heart and brain of fire; -His
volco a thousand trumpets shame;
His sinews never tire.
Of body dark gigantic, vast.
His way no arm can bar;
Resistless as the battle godc,
His flight is like a star. f
His path, twin bands of virgin steel,
That stretch from east to west;
O'er beams the Invaded forest gave,
Now fixed In nature's breast.
He speeds where storm or avalanche
Hove torn the mountainside;
Or through the peaceful valley, whore
The evening shadows hide.
Here husbandmen the furrow turns,
Or reaps the golden grain
That ripens with the kiss of sun,
Or bows beneath the rain.
Thoro troutless. undiscovered lenpi
In babbling wayslda brooks;
And briar and honeysuckle bloom , ,
In unsuspecting nooks.
Here pygmy hands and hearts of flame
Have pierced the mountain base1;
There rock and steel aro Intertwined.
To bridge the chasm's space.
For men have planned, have delved and
Have struggled night and day
To blaze a trail from coast to co'a'st,
And build his great highway.
