PERKINS & SHELDON
With each succeeding year the change
is more noticeable in the attitude of
Londoners and Parisians toward Ameri
cans. There is an interchange of hos
pitality now existing which would not
have been possible a few years ago; and,
most remarkable of all, no English
house-party is now quite au fait with
out some smart American. Many New
Yorkers who are spending July in Eng
land on a tour of these parties, will re
turn to Newport in August with a
goodly representation of English guests.
At the seaside resorts the quiet days
of June hare given way to the opening
ru6hof the July season. Crowds of
pleasure-seekers from the heat-burdened
cities and inland towns fill the hotela
and cottages to overflowing. At Narra
gansett Pier, Long Branch, Bar Harbor
and Ocean Grove there aie more visitors
than ever before so early in the season.
At Cape May and Atlantic City the so
cial life is fully inaugurated, the first
big dances occurring on the Fourth of
Newport is more beautiful this season
than ever before. Gardeners, as well
as the choicest of foreign shrubbery,
have been imported, and the discovery
of blue roses and green carnations would
not be surprising in some of the hot
houses. All Newport was out on the
water in the early evening of the Fourth.
The yachts and the detachment of a
navy fleet in the harbor were ablaze
with flags and bunting. It has been
conceded that this will be a yachting
year, and all indications point to nu
merous entertainments on superbly
fitted yachts which resemble floating
hotels, and upon wbieh large parties
may be accommodated. One summer
is very much like another; but during
the last two years there certainly has
been an evolution of the summer girl.
She no longer mopes on the hotel or
cottage verandas, lamenting the delin
quent man who refuses to come in and
dine and dance; she goes forth to join
him at his sports, which is an altogether
preferable arrangement. The veranda
girl is still to be found, for not every
young woman is equal to the hot sun
and the required effort for sports; but
the smartest girls this summer are off in
the early morning for hunting, riding or
gclf. Many of these young women are
wearing their hair in a thick braid down
their backs, and the problem of unruly
hairpins is thus solved.
It is Baid that not in years has there
been so fashionable a commencement
as this year's at New Haven. Many of
the graduating class were men represent
ing New York's very smartest inner cir
cle. Numerous yachts from Newport.Bos
ton and New York came up for the final
event, the boat race at New London,
and, taking it altogether, probably no
outgoing class of Yale ever enjoyed a
gayer week. In New York the arrivals
from Europe and the constant passing
through of prominent persons have
given a zest to tocial life. Most of the
men are still in the city and are avail
able for short suburban excursions in
the evenings and dinners at some of the
restaurants on the outskirts of the town.
Dinners, by the way are good form only
in the severest simplicity. Delicacy,
shortness and superfine quality now are
the ruling watchwords.
