IIORICOX THE BEAUTIFUL
WONDERS AND GLORIES OF
A SIMMER BEAUTY SHOW AT EVERY
LANDING— LEGEND OF JOSHUA'S
ROCK— A FISHERMAN WHO
WOULD NOT LIE.
Lake George, X. V.. Aug. 2 A voyage
the length of Lake George, otherwise known as
Horicon. the lake of silvery waters, is a beauty
Ehow in more than one resj>ect.
Jlb blue depths dance fur thirty-six miles be
tween twin processions of mountains as rugged
and beautiful as can be found east of the Rookies.
In Its midst are scores of islands, picturesque in
the extreme, most of them untouched by human
hand. Such is nature's contribution.
The express steamers make Just eighteen land
ings on the voyage from Caldwell to Baldwin, and
at each of these there is invariably a show of
human beauty — the women who are summering at
the many resorts about the lake. It is the proper
thing to rush oft to the wharf each time a steam
er's whistle signals a landing, and the prettiest
girls in the place are the first to respond. They
come with their sleeves rolled up. showing sun
browned arms; their heads bare that their hair
may take its careless way, and they are so happy
In the enjoyment of this combination of lake and
mountain that the spirit becomes contagious. The
visitor of a day is filled with it before two land
ings are made.
As the new express steamer Sagamore pushes
into the lake from the terminal of the Delaware
and Hudson Railroad at Caldwell, the stone sum
mer home of Edward M. Shepard is prominently
in view, and near it is the summer home of his
political partner, George Foster Peabody. For ten
miles along the west shore of the lake the cot
tages of various New-Yorkers are hidden or half
hidden among the trees. Only a few of them can
be seen from the steamer, however, for she tacks
across the lake to call at a number of hotel land-

Ignored. At the end of It, In absolute seclusion,
and, strange to say. facing away from the lake,
are the cottages of Dr. Edward Eggleston and
George Cary Eggleston. Near them is Joshua's
Rock, over which hargs a story.
Years ago there lived on the lake a character
known as "Josh" Harris, than whom no one more
stubborn ever trolled for pickerel. He was not a
big man, except when It came to having his own
way. When a boy the neighbors made fun of him
for trying to raise a beard, so his chin was never
shaven, though his whiskers grew uncomfortably
long. His friends used to set him at all sorts of

"A strong man would capture that wild critter
without a gun," said the friend.
"Think so?" drawled Harris.
"I wouldn't think a heap of the man who
couldn't," was the answer. "You ain't afeard of
bears, be you?"
"I ain't afeard of nothing," declared "Josh." "But
I don't know about that there bear. I reckon,

"Josh" held back no longer, but slipped quietly
down the rock toward the bear. It must have been
a she bear, for It was so engrossed in admiring Its
reflection in the polished surface of the lake that It
paid no attention to his approach.
He debated with himself the best mode of attack.
Should he grab It around the neck and attempt to
strangle it? He remembered that strangling was
a "trump" In the Bruin deck, and dismissed the
He thought of taking a double Nelson hold, but
that would give the bear a chance to use Its teeth.

he might drown the beast.

edge the man hesitated a moment, and then
plunged in. The bear followed without thinking
about It. "Josh" was a famous swimmer; the bear
an indifferent performer in the water. "Josh" got on
Its back and held Its head under. Then the bear

They are still finding Lake George diamonds on
Diamond Island, which is near the entrance to
Kattskill Bay. There was a time when loads cf
crystals were found there, and nearly every one
who came to the lake secured a souvenir, but for a
number of years the Island has been barren. A
few days ago a party from the Marlon House sailed
to the pretty island. One of the men, a New-Yorlt
militiaman, found a diamond as pure as any Lake
George diamond ever was. Ho gave. It to the girl

The only restriction which the State puts on the

leaving, a yoang man on a two w, . k- 1 vacation
from the city. His clothes told of sporting tenden

backed away. On the wharf pome young women
with hair primly plastered looked upon him sor
rowfully. No one waved him "goodby." and he
waved at no one. It was ■ strange leaving.
"I came here expecting to have the time of my
life." he explained, "but they were too strong On
religion for r.ie I went a day without speaking to
any one. and then met a girl who was rather good
looking. She did not seem to be an Bndeavorer, at

"You'll get unother line of talk from Saratoga

The Hague, where the big regatta Is held every
year and Rogers Rock, which has the most pict

summering places for certain army people. All
along the lake, eppecinlly on the east shore, the
steamer passes freakish mountains. The pilot.
Walter Harris, whose father, the oldest captain
on the lake, has Just taken an important shore
position with the company, makes the mountains
take on fantastic ■napes when he directs the eye
of the stranger at Just the right angle. One big
mountain becomes a reclining elephant, with trunk

They tell of a New- York amateur photographer
who formed a party to climb Black Mountain

about' Lake George. His object in making the
tiresome ascent was to take photographs with a

make pack animals out of themselves, and finally
mounted the heavy camera upon its tripod on the
very summit of the mountain. Then he remem
