Th? An.irir.an hotel i? lioth tbe center and
the mifcance of I he town. Around the hotel
itnir-at all the discontented people, thox
who fro.il nnous rnuons have lost industry
for IlOuekt'plng' end thrift for plain Loanl
in. 'lhey aim like hinls in a cage, always
tempting others to come to the hotel to live,
and yet always desirous themselves to got
back again to some substantial life. At the
hoid you not only get all tb.2 ncw, hut all
the scamlaL It becomes the snoojng and
boozmj jilace for tho yonng fellows around
the toii. who tlicro tell their old stono.1 anl
culti atn the barkeeper, and I have often ob
servttl that tha barkeepsr is the favorite
Euet in tlie l.otcL You can see J ounj; mill
ionairui, or expectants that way, leaning on
the bans tilling tr.eir private family life to
the bar-keeper. Liquorencourages convivial
Intercourse, and tho bar-keeper here i like
the bar maid in England some one to make
love to when all other social jn'ercourse is
frustrated. The bar-keeper wears suih a
nice white apron, such a tpotle-s shirt, has
his hair fri?zd every morning, is dainty
about hu shoes, be juggles the crystal
glasses so deftly that he would seem to be
what the lailiej call "vuch a refined man."
When a man has got a hollow stomach, looks
pale and weak from his secret externa, ami
has finally not much of anything but a soft
address, insinuations and good suit of clothes,
he get tl e i tt'no of being "so rtfinod."
Some American towns are altogether in
ferior in the matter of hotels, nhila others
are too well provided. There are a gool
many hotels' in this country, with rome great,
un leldy, rickety old house put up in the
tpeeulativ e da-, too big to keep clean, lti
furniture dropping to p.ets?, and still them
it the elevator running like the worm that
never dieth. When the rook is undeqinid,
the lalwivn. mutinous, thn tiiumU r
n 13 ids insolent and the celling falling
dawn, you can f c xud on two things
!'ing steadfast, tho Imrkpoper and tlie
elevator Ikiv. Tliev will nde you ii
stairs, whatever else they m3 do unjustly to
you. Borne of out hotels, erected m the
proper manner to meet a mil want, continue
1 1 lie profitable all tho tin e These arc oft"n
fatal examples to multiply hotels where they
are not vvanttvl The Fifth Avenue hotel in
Ue York produce a n nt of about $.'50,W)
aeu;. It was built miiiiii time before the
n union, the proprietor hat! ready momy
and a good credit, and he bought a piece of
ground hardly mutcliol on the globe and put
up this line house, and bns alnays had rv
sxiusiblo tenants, most of whomliave made
Hottls ivsiuiro to in xt a. demand rather
than to make one. l'arau Stevens was the
must fortutiaU) American hotelkceper, 1 e
t aa he knew the business and had capital
and credit at the ver' time when we were
stepping out in hotel enterprise, so as to en
cou:it"i a new wave in intercourse. Yet
Stevens made some foolish investment. Tho
VictorLi hotel, as it Ls now called in Jfew
York, was put up under the name of the
Steve is horn;, to 1 a series of upurtnient
residunceii. The ground and building cost
too nut h. some say 81,500,000 to t2,000,CM,
and now it has had to be razed to be a regul i r
hotel at to much a day. I should think it im
possible that on such v aluations as the abov e
it could make reasonable interest. The
lirunsnick hotel, ojijiosito tho Victoria, lias
been built up by a steward from tho Hoffman
house. It cost a great deal of money and
charges very high pneos, j ct several time
has been in a hard condition from want of
real cash. The St. James, which Mr.
Spraguc, formerly of Cincinnati, and
Mr. Connor, the theatrical manager,
tool: together nt a rent of $13,00)
higher than overpaid for tha same proport
before, baj just retired Mr. Spraguc, who ie
oeiv od, I understand, f-XMJiXI f rom Mr. Con
ner for his third iiterost in the loa.se. Tins
piviicrty vvos tuilt up by Walton in the day
when ho was successful in letting, nnd prob
ubly was north to him inure than to anv
other jwrsou It Is one of tho best hotels in
Xew York, but tho rent is too high. The
givat hotel called tho Murray Hill hou-e, put
up b' an omnibus man who had a fat take
in Tweed's time, tins fmnd a tenant, and is
nUiut to be opened A large hotel is about
to be erecteJ at tho Central park gatVs by a
cinibinntion of builders, and, to show how
nothing goes smojthly in this world, the
bricklayer, etc., have just struck on all thefo
Uiiidings for shorter hours of work, so that
the contractors are meuaius:sl with ruin on
tbe one side or short profits on the othr.
The liest summer business in this country
now Is of the cheap kind There are but few
t! hotels left any whero for country boarders
Tlie West End hottl at Long Bran-h gets 55
a day for soma of its rooms, but Saratoga
has been struck by a blizzard, and w hile there
are, iwrhas more people in tho country this
yeui Uinn I ever know, they are nearly all at
the then ) hotels. Atlantic City and Asbury
Park are, itrrhaps, the two largest settlements
of a summtr character on the American
coast, uu I both arc of a cheap nature. The
av erage cottage at Atlantic City probably
costs loss than $3,000 Tlie best hotel, tho
Mansion house, charges about flli a week for
IkuivI. When wo get the water all pumped
out of thU summer property they will bo
very gl id to keep most of these hotels for
$i.M a day, which was considered a high
price lefore the rebellion At that figure I
Ktop)ied .n late as lh5J at the best hotels in
New York city, and they made more money
than they do now at $4 V) a flay.
The huge, overgrown hotels which ien)
built in wartimes at a high cot are, as u
rule, closed. The Stockton house, at Cape
May, cost the West Jersey railroad more
than half a million dollars. It w as built, like
many of these hotels, to draw railroad trav ei.
Labor at tliat time was s. and (On day. Last
year it lost f 40,000 to the lailroad, which re
solved this year to shut it up, unless it could
earn something that would not come out cf
the railroad dividends. Having failed to do
o it was cloned at tho ni'dille of July. Ths
big hotel atltockaway built by Ken Smith
has nev er been opcnnl at all. Tho Coney
Island hotels have leen doing poorly. But
the little houses run on moderate rates an
making a liv ing, and that is about all that
nature design the average hotclkeeper tc

"Good morning. Deacon ; you walk off as
spry as a boy. for alt you are so old."
''Why, law bless joa. I can't help It; lean
see so well with my new spectacles It appears
to put new lire In me. I actually feel twenty
years younger, tnd I have had them only a
short time. You see, I did not buy whea Dr.
Yost first came to Ichlta : I thought I would
just wait and let some others try. I had paid
cut so mucn money lor spectacles, anu my eyes
Were gettlDf poorer and poorer all the time,
that 1 had about despaired of ever gel ling any
thing that would stay the dreadful loss or sight.
But when I cam to see and talk with my neigh
bors, and with people from other narta of the
country who had ned lr. Yost' Improved
lenses isomeoi inera lor years?, i concilium i
would try It onre more, and I am frank to con
fess they are far ahead or my expectations
Oh, yes, it's a hard country on ey-tlgbt. AH
this western prairie country Is much harder on
on the eyes than tbe eastern states, and come to
thlukor it. it is as much out or place to try to
use the old style or spectacles here In Kansas as
It would be totrj to firm with the old style of
fn no in tool j and. sir, I don't hesitate to say
hat the man that wont go to Dr. ot and be i
fitted with ansirut his improved lenses oujrht !
to have his sell-binder and improved plows
taken rrom mm, ana tx compelled n cut nij
grain with the old hand sickle and plou with
the wooden-mouldboard plow."
It Is just as important to use inproved leuse
properly lilted. In order to save eyesight, as it
Is to us the self binder to save grain In this
house talking, nothing short of Dr. Yost's
Improved spectacles wllltave the isIon Iu this
day and age.
