Democratic nominee for President, will g;o up to
the Wlnnesook Lodge at the foot of Slide Moun
tain In company with political friends. The
matter has been kept quiet, in accordance with
his desire, but the fact of his invitation from
other members of the club, who have strongly
urged him to go, Is certain. This lodge has been
a favorite retreat with many Democratic states
men and leaders in past years, and once before
the Democratic nominee for President was en
tertained there. Mr. Bryan spent a nhcht at the
lodge In his first campaign. The club began to
build quaint cottages there In the wildwcod In
1887. and Judge Parker was its first president.
He says he never built a cottage there because
the altitude was too great for Mrs. Parker's
health. But he visits the place every summer.
