town for a day's shopping. The men,
who were obliged to spend the week in
Wall street, were welcomed to dinner,
and were sure of finding cooling drinks
on her sideboard during the evening,
and a comfortable cushion on the front
steps. Here Mrs. Jack and her pretty
daughters held a small court during
the long, hot evenings.
"Yes, 1 am enjoying it all immensely,"
paid Mrs. Jack, in answer to the inqui
ries of a writer in the New York Trib
une. "It is so entirely novel, don't you
know! ' In the way of outdoor life we
have automobiling, yachting, driving

wrappers and read novels by the electric
fans which'1 keep ub perfectly cool. In
the evening, after five o'clock, we see
men galore. Jack is perfectly delighted,
or at least has the grace to Bay he is.

vainly endeavored to describe.
Returning to the hotel she met an
American friend who had lived many
