side of tbe building, we need scarcely say,
has been much improved; for tho staring
red brick has been substituted with a soft
deep stone color paint, front, rear and

deal, performing tbeir duties attentively,
yet without that prevalent obtrusivenets
to annoying to tensitivo guests.
Proceeding up ttairt, wo we-e shown

with handsome furniture of modern style,
including finely toned pianos, and like tbe

with a mosquito bar ; foot-baths aro to be

seems wanting to invite to "tired nature's

note-worthy that every hull Is furnished
with a good clock, Ico tank, and
