JORDAN WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS,
A'j\., Aug. 2ft.?Early In tho summer a
Rinall, but congenial company, recalling
the varied charms of Jordan AVblto Sul?
phur, sought here a much needed rest
from the Intolerable routine of city life.
The curative properties of tho water and
tho excellence of the cuisine had been
noised abroad, nnd the crowd was rapidly
augmented. Not onlv have camping and
coaching parties beon beguldod Into stay?
ing far beyond the allotted time, but every
train has brought It? quota of pleiisuie
seekers, until the beautiful little hotel Is
gay with rainbow-tinted parasols, and the
soft draperies of the elusive, but wholly
tutic.lna.tlng summer girl.
In-sharp scontrasi to this delicate femi?
nine flower that blooms along life's dusty
highway Is tuo scrlnus-imiiOHd. contem?
plative fisherman, who returns year after
year to the streams that afford him poron
nial sport.
The young athlete, Gibsonesque In type
and ueuring hlmsell w.tn an uiicomiueieu
air. Is also In evidence, with bis horses
and oilier acessorles of a sporting lift. His
up-to-date riding outfit tnkes th? nrevall
Ing tint of the khaki which the Boer AA'nr
mude a sine qua non of modern manhood.
The color safeguards tho wearer from the
nscagai, but there are other darts to
which ho Is not Immune, oven In t.hls de?
fensive armor.
