There was, In fact, no danger to the great Kaat
ersklll resort at any tlme^rom these vast moun
tain ftres. which raged on the lower slopes for
days, notwithstanding the many wild reports. The
flames were thousands of feet below and over a
mile away. Then, too. It must he remembered
that this hotel is on the mountain top and sur
rounded by extensive lawns and could not take
fire from the burning woods. Its careful provision
for fire fighting includes over two thousand feet of
hose, an Inexhaustible supply of water and chemi
cal extinguishers in every hall. It has a tank of
€3.000 gallons of water on the roof, which has been
untouched during the drouth. This will be in
creased by 10,000 gallons at the close of the present
The vast acreage swept by these fires Is, how
ever, a matter of much regret to every lover of

This charming village Is spilling over, at an esti

GOLFER* RULED RICHFIELD.
GAYETY OF THE WEEK CENTRED AROUND
THE TOURNAMENT- NOTES OF
Richfield Springs. N. V.. Aug. 18 (Special*.-Rich
field's social calendar has been modified this week
♦ o suit the Influx of golfers in attendance at
the Walontha golf tourney. The early half of
the week was entirely theirs, and Richfield has
not heen a whit tardy in entertaining both at the
Earltngton and at the ciubhouse. Thursday a game
dinner at the Tunnlcliffe Inn. Otsego Lake, tickled
the palate of some thirty epicures, and that same
afternoon a coaching party journeyed to the Cru
ger mansion on the Jordanvllle Road. With the
tournament, tennis, riding and driving, concerts
and the cotillon, there has been a bright round of
merriment and every one in the Otsego Hills appar
ently enjoyed a merry week.
Wednesday evening the Earllngton looked its
prettiest. The cotillon was on, and the most
elaborate gowns and jewels added much to the
bright color scenes nf the dining hall, which had
been decorated especially for the occasion. Gar
lands of golden rod and bunches of cattail deftly
placed about the room made it attractive, both
to the dancers and the lookers on. Through the
customary thoughtfulness of Messrs. Earle A
Son, the cottagers and guests from the smaller
hotels were in attendance, so that the parlors and
promenade leading to the scene of the cotillon
were well filled with spectators and charmingly
attired matrons. Richard S. Croker was tn©
master of ceremonies. Nor content with the for
mal figures of the cotillon. Mr. Croker dexterously
lntrodueed two feats that were as stunning as
they were successful, winning no little meed
of praise for his ingenuity. The valuable bulldogs,
Bromley Crib and Rodney Stone, were the
subjects of one figure. Then the cavaliers
rode polo ponies. rolling the ball to their
ladies. And If their Individual feat was deft
ly accomplished they had the honor of
the following dance. Richfield is not accustomed
to dogs and norses in the ballroom, but Mr. Croker
foresaw every contingency, and not a slip marred
these original figures. Mrs. Ulysses S. Grant.
