responded to the toast. ''The Lexin;

her of the Vermont Legislature andl
stanch Democrat and also a -lawy<
by profession. He has come Sow
in search of health and rest, and is
delighted and charmed with this
section and its climate. The hotel is
called the Lexington and the station
on the railroad is known as Summer
land. The hotel is not a large one,
having only about fifty rooms, but it
is built on an eminence overlooking
all of the surrounding country, and
fronting the hotel is a large body of
pines. It has all of the modern con
veniences for a first-class and up-to
date resort. The water-works and
electric light plants are being built ex
pressly for the hotel. The rooms are
large and well appointed, and all of
the surroundings make it an ideal
place for rest. The culinary depart
ment is in charge of a chief. who
was brought from the North. He is
an expert in his line. All of the help
tboit the hotel is white.
Major Childs. who is the manager of
the botel. is a retired army officer
and has bein in bad health f4or some
time. ani has traevlled all over this
country in search of a place that
would be most beneficial to him.. and
he says that he has found it in this
beautiful Snmmerland. The hotel
was opened only about the middle of
February of this year, and though it
was late in the season. it has been
filled with tourists all the while.
The people of this section expect
that the trolley line from Augusta to
Columbia will be in operation with
in two years, and it is expected also
that the line will be built across to
Newberry and on to Spartanburg, and
no doubt by another season it will be
necessary to enlarge the accomoda
tions of the Lexington.
The people of Leesville have been
attentive to the members of the dis
trict Convention and have done every
thing in their power to make the meet
ing a pleasant and successful one. The
representatives all affirmed that this
has been one of the most successful
and pleasant meetings of its kind ever
held in the State, and those members
who have been in the habit of attend
ing the Grand Lodge say that they
have seen nothing to surpass it in all
the conventions of the Grand Lodge
they have attended.
