ROCKEFELLER AND VANDERBILT PRESERVES IN THE ADIRONDACKS HAVE CAUSED GAME TO INCREASE IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS.
CAMPS OF THE WEALTHY
SUMMER HOMES IN THE ADI
THOSE OF WILLIAM ROCKEFELLER
AKD FREDERICK W. YANDERBILT
: ESPECIALLY ATTRACTIVE
The Vanderbllts and the Rockefellers have in
vaded the Adirondacks. The results are many.
Akobc tome of the natives of the Adirondack
jloantaln region there is a strong dislike for the
plan of blocking off a great corner of the territory,
advertising it as a private park and telling out
jflnir to keep off. but in th« private parks game
gjid flf-h are protected and the deer run out upon
the public lands, -where they may be killed by the
independent sportsman, •while fish from the pre
serves enter the waters of all lands, and there the
fisherman may get et them. It is notable that deer
have been Increasing in the last few years, during
which me organisation of private parks has been
•nost active* Great fums of money have been dis
tributed among the Adirondack folk by the
•uTalthy i aen who have lately become interested in
the great region and who have been prompted to
build hunting lodges or summer camps there.
It might be said that the grept park of fifty
thousand acres which "William Rockefeller has
been establishing In Brandon does not have a great
fence around it. but there ar<» many avenues
through wiWh "workmen, carpenters, masons,
plumbe-s and other artisans, as well as ditch dig
gers, woodohoppers and the so-called unskilled
laborers, may rasp and return again, well paid
th«> tine they have served the masters in that
park. Mr. Rockefeller began first with the pur-
I chase of a great tract of land which had been
•lumbered over." The village of Brandon was on
one corner of this tract, and in the village werr
the homes of the men who had been busy for year
removing the lumber from the great forest tract.
With th< passing of the timber came the time for
closing down the sawmills, and the little homes of
the woodcutters there upon the sands in Brandon
jost value rapidly until Mr. Rockefeller desired to
establish a g»-eat romping ground in the wilder
ness, and. to maintain the privacy of it all. en
deavored to purchase the homes of the men who
had lived in Brandon and worked in the forests.
Land value* soared, but nearly all the little places.
built flat upon the sand, without stone foundations,
have been entered as the property of the Rocke
fellers. Mr. Rockefeller gave back to them the
houses to do with as they willed, as long as they
were removed from the park.
ta the mean time, at Bay Pond, on the New-
York and Ottawa Railway, the Rockefellers began
to build, and although that was nearly four year?
ago. they are still building. About $250,000 has
been distributed among men who did various kinds
of work, making that part of the region more
prosperous than ever before, even in the times
when the great mills reduced the trees of the
forests to nothing. There has been work for over a
hundred men at Bay Pond and in various harts
of the preserve for a long time, as there was much
tr> be accomplished in building the main camps,
the lodges about the shores of the lakes and ponds
in the park, in making roads and in opening the
rarrowf of the streams for the passage of the
boats of the hunters.
The visitor at Bay Pond Is surprised by the great
array of buildings that spreads over a large acre
age on the sand hills and provides houses for the
cwners of the park and their friends, for the men
■who work there and for the horses, and structures
for the housing of the stores required in the many
fiepartments. The highway has been lined for many
miles by the charred trunks of some of the old
forest monarch?. It is a gTeat belt of sand, or.
rather, a plateau, there in the mountains, and at
come time or other waves of flame swept over it.
capping the life from everything in the way and
peeling the ground bare of the duff and leaf
mould, which had been accumulating for centuries. j
The nakedness of the ruins is now covered partly
by the green growing poplars and the young cherry
trees, but this part of the forest included in the
Rockefeller park is far from beautiful. It re
calls too vividly the terrors of the forest fire.
But a little nearer the buildings at Bay Pond
the limits of the forest fire are defined by a ravine
and a stream, and. after passing over the beautiful
bri<Jpe, one enters a long lane between the troe
■whore the young spruces and pines crowd closely to
the margins of the wagon way. The horses hurry
aJong nv»r a good track, and soon one bursts from
the forest into full view of this great plantation.
The New-York and Ottawa Railway cuts through
the sand hills from the south to the north, where,
away in the distance, one views the outlines of

Wl <■*■» rare oid mahogany predominates. About a
hundred feet north of the dining room Is the house
of the guides, covered outside from the ground to
the roof and down again with shingles. They say
that one hundred and seventy-five^thousand shingles
were used in one of these buildings. North and
•west of the guide house, scattered about on the

areabout fifteen buildings, one of the smallest
and prettiest of which is tne tower. In which i is ith«

of the bell have been heard six miles across that
region of lakes and mountains. ;
The most attractive feature of Bay Pond. in the
eye of man*' persons, and one of them is Mr. Rocke- <

the ndows of the sitting room. The scene is

AT PAUL SMITH'S.
Paul Smith's, N. V.. Aug. 2 (Special).— There Is
an air of expectancy among the young people here
at the hotel and in the nearby lodges and camp?,
f.>r the- news has gons about that Miss Alice Roose
velt, daughter of the President, is coming on Tues
day. Miss Roosevelt, who goes to the camp of
James R. Roosevelt, on the Upper St. Regis, will
probably be seen frequently during her stay at the
social affairs at the hotel. There is some hope that
the President may pay a flying visit here later in
the season. Mrs. Cowles, of New-York, a sister of
the President, has Just arrived at Mr. Roosevelt's
camp with her niece. Miss Helen Roosevelt.
John D. Rockefeller, who is for the season at the
camp of his sons-in-law. Harold McOormlck and
Sartell Prentice, of Chicago, is to be seen on the
laka almost dally in his private electric launch.
The mountain air agrees with Mr. Rockefeller, and
he has improved considerably physically since com
ing here. .■• *".. -**j; "'- .

the guests at th<» hotel, for during the recent two
weeks he had been here the Governor had made
himself popular among young and old. The Gov
ernor is an enthusiastic fisherman, and during his
stay made some good catches. Mrs. Stone Is still
