Any aspect nt Old Orchard differs radi
cally from that nt tho ocenn summer re
sorts in tho vicinity of Now York. Thoro
Sunday is tho liveliest day tho day of
all days so far as the mutlo of bands and
the miscellaneous sideshows nro con
cerned. Hen these things nro not al
lowed to opornto on the first day of tho
week. But on other days tho steeds of
the merry-go-round nnd tho breathless
desconti of tho razxlo daulo are enjoyed
here as much ns elsewhere
It it hard to fix on tho most individual
oharaoteristio of Old Orchard. If you
como horo for a considerable sojourn
and have plenty of money, its summer
hotels, of which there aro more than it
core, will overshadow evory other fea
ture. Those hotels aro, in a way, all
alike. They differ only in degree of vast
new, all being so simple in design as to
suggest the adjective "barnlike," in
which regard they nro not alono among
imnmor hotels. But nearly all command
excellent sea views, all aro supplied with
spacious verandas, and tome of them can
accommodate half m thousand guests
apiece. When filled with pleasuring
people, they are undoubtedly delightful
places to be in. But this is not a good
year for seashore hotels, nor for nny
other sort either, for that matter. Busi
ness baa picked up somewhnt over tho
stagnation of tho early season nt Old
Orchard, but as late as tho middloof
July tho dinner was regularly served in
one of the largest of the caravansaries
horo for less than 00 guests.
Aa a consequence the transient throngs
becomo of greater importance than tho
hotel crowd. The transients como from
Portland, Biddeford nnd Saco and other
nearby Maine and New Hampshire
towns. There is also, especially on Sun
days, a noticeable admixturo of farmers
and their wives and children. What
seems very peculiar to the stranger hero
is tho almost total absence of the Eu
ropean countennnco and of any accent
save that of Now England.
A curious tendency among tho tran
sient visitors to Old Orchard, especially
on Sunday, is to devoto moro tiino to the
railroad ; 'ntforms than to the magnifi
cent beach. Last Sunday, for instance,
moro than half of the people in sight for
hours promonaded up And down the plat
forms unceasingly just ns they might
havo strolled along tho sidewalks in front
of their homes. Tho only advantage
these short distanco pedestrians found in
being nt Old Orchard, so far as I could
see, was that hero they could breatho tho
sea air and hear tho surf, oven if they
would not look at tho ocpim. But they
seemed to count it much that they were
In a crowd and that every fow stops they
might stop and buy some sweetened
water drink or soino fruit or popcorn
glued with molasses into snowy and pink
spheres. Tho hot sausago does not flour
ish in Old Orchard because its needed
accompanying drink beer is not nl
lowcd on Sunday or any other day, for
this is in Maine, tho homo stato of pro
hibition. I askpd tho woman who, with
her son, sells cigars and soft potations in
tho shadow of tho depot if prohibition
"No, sir, It don't," was her reply.
"There's some low down places horo
whero you can get beor, and whisky,
too, for that matter. When tho races is
on, it's sometimes perfectly scandalous.
But they have to bo pretty careful, sir,
and they sometimes gets cuught, no mat
ter how sly they are."
T MI.V. -
A DIP IN THE SURF.
Tho "racing" feature of life nt Old
Orchard is comparatively a now thing.
i Trotting is moro affected than running,
and tho track.is kito shaped. Tho names
of the horses that exhibit their bjhhhI are
! unfamiliar to the New Yorker und the
westerner, but tho sport is sometimes
i pretty good, and tho enthusiasm dis
played by tho younger element among
tho men is of tho sort thut is born of
j years of unsatisfied longing for sport.
I Tho beach at Old Orchard is ono of tho
j finest in tho world, and its points of su
i perioiity aro manifest at ull stages of
t tliu iixitov; WllDtl flwi 44.1.1 la 1.1 till.
farther south, for tho water retains a
wintry chill until the 1st of August.
When the tide is out, tho beach forms n
wonderful drive, promenade and loung
ing pluco. Vehicles of many kinds, la
den with all sorts and conditions of hu
manity, aro driven up and down over
its smooth and firm sands. Young men
and women pace slowly and serionsly to
and fro, making decorous love, and old
er persons sit in comfortable armchairs,
which aro rented out ut 10 tents u seat,
and watch them.
So much for tho seaside life cf Old Or-
1 chard the phase of existence that ma
with tho most propriety perhaps be
called worldly. Tho place possesses
quite another sort of life, and it is ie-
Back of tho beach lie tho grounds of
H ---r i
the Orchard Beach Camp Meeting asso
elation. Between it and tho seaside ele-
' meiit thero is not u great amount of
Bvmnuthy. according to indications, for

sued in tho interests of the hotels, docs
uot mention tho facilities tho plucv uf

j and the pamphlet got out by the associa-
, tion savs never a word of tho beach or
tho untiring. '1 tin camp meeting grounds
woro laid out for tho Methodists, and
this denomination Milt holds n camp
meeting heio every year, Tho services
aro hold in n bit of grovo consisting of
really lino old trees that shmlo n natural
amphitheater. A neat wooden stand
has been erected for tho speaking, nnd
substantial sonilclrcles of plank seats
hnvo been placed facing It among tho

benches, and electrio lights nro sus

limbs of tho trees, so that nt night tho

with tiny cottage,

In tho early days of tho association
tfoevo wero mnny tents ovory yonr, the
right to pitch ono during tho camp meet
ing season being obtainnbla for a small
urn of money, Tho association is now
virtually n land company, which sells its
lots tho same ns any other real catato
corporation, nndsomoof tho "cottagers"
aro year round resident, with business
in Old Orchard villago or near by. Tho
auditorium is no longor used by tho
Methodists only, but is loosed out to nny
religious body in good standing that may
make application and has enough money
to pay tho price. This year tho Ad
rentists, the Salvation Anny and the
"Christian allinnco" havo already held
meetings. Tho "Christian Workers For
the Salvation of Souls and tho Promotion
of Holiness" have dates from Aug. 7
to Aug. 14, tho Methodists (Portland
district), Aug. 14 to Aug. 10, and tho
temicrauce people from Aug. 19 to
Of courso it depends on your religious
temperament ns to whothcr yon would
enjoy the meetings or not. Tho tall
young New Englnndor who acts as uni
formed policeman and genoral keeper of
tho pcaco on tho grounds says ho finds
them all profitable, nnd ho spoko so ear
nestly that I do not think his liking is
altogether a crcaturo of tho fact that be
causo of them ho has employment. Tho
"holiness" meetings, he says, aro most
agreeablo to him, and next como tho meet
ings of the Christian alliance, which is a
faith euro organization. Tho Salvation
Army meetings, in his opinion, by reason
of their wind and stringed instruments
and their bigand littlo drums, nil ord moro
legitimate diversion than nny of the oth
ers. Ho added that tho Salvation audi
ences Wero quietest, which he accounted
for on the ground that thero was nolso
enough on the stand to meet all require
ments in thut direction.
"And then," he said, "nobody bothers
me much but tho young men and young
women, who get away back in tho shad
ows and givo up their time to courtin
instead of listeniu to tho tulkin. But 1
dou't often huff to speak to them twice,
sir," ) went on, "and ulthough IVo

Madison, N. J., Aug. 0. Coming over
on tho ferryboat tho other night I got
into conversation with a man who want
ed to know whero I lived. And when 1
told him ho revealed to me tho furt thut
ho lived at Mosquitodalo.
"Aro tho mosquitoes thick out there?" 1
"Thick is not tho word for it. They
simply own tho place und givo it "its
"Why don't you movo out of the
place?" I inquired.
"Because I lovo it," he replied.
"With all its mosquitoes?"
"Yes, with all its mosquitoes I lovo it
still," ho said, with a sort of patriotic
"I cannot understand so queer an ap
pieciation of merit," I reinarked. "Aro
you fond of mosquitoes?"
"Not ut all. I lrnto them."
"Then why do you lovo Mosqultodule?'
"Because I loathe darkles," ho replied.
"What havo darkies to do with Mos
quitodale?" I asked.
"Nothing," ho lesjionded
"How many darkies aro (hero in Mos
quitodale:" I asked.
"None." ho replied. "Thero never was
ono there, and thero never will bo ono
"Can't the durkies settle thero if they
"Certainly they can if they want to.
But they dou't want to, und thoy never
will want to."
"Will you explain why?" 1 asked.
"Certainly. You see, tho ground is of
such a character nut there that it is im
possible to raise watermelons. It's been
tried again und again.'
"And then all tho property is restricted,
so that no man from onu end of Mos
quitcdulu to the other can keep chickens,
ami no darky under tho sun -I mean
under the moon can llvo a happy life
where the watermelon and the night
