a gracious thing for the French to
establish a club for American of

Much had already been plsnned
for the soldiers, but the officers, per

I may add that after evolving the

There's a rumor going round' that
the old hotel at Cabin John's bridge Is
to be renovated, remodeled, and fixed
up in quite delightful faxhlon for the
entertainment of motor parties.
Dinner will be served there, I under

I do hope It is true, and that the
project will be put through In a
high-class way. for Washington Is

really a difficult problem to And any
place in the neighborhood of Wash

The Purple Iris tea house, the Brook
tea bouse, and other places of the
sore are picturesque and attractive,
but one ean't get dinner there un
less it Istrdered ahead, and that dis
poses of the possibility of Impromptu
parties, the pleasantext of all. The
same difficulty applies to the Dower
House, and besides it is too far away
to be very frequently patronized.
Then, of courte. there are places
like Trammell's, above Oreat Falls:
Pennlfleld'x- one of the lock houses
up above the falls- and "Mr.. Vl'let"
at Seneca, where one -an set a good
chicken dinner and have the best of
good times: but they're primitive In
the extreme. On the whole, it would
seem that the crowded Washington of
today could well support a first-class

as the rambling hotel overlooking
