Bretton ' -Woods. N. H.. July 4.-The / glorious
Fourth was ushered In royally by the übiquitous
wchln at midnight of the 3d. when " throughout
t^ c Stoat Hampshire hill towns the boom of can
■BD reverberated through the hills and the church
bells echoed and re-echoed In melodious chimes,
robbing the weary of their rest and filling the
tearr of the young with patriotism.
There are always In country villages acts of

Fourth that would not be tolerated at any other

the window of the local Jeweller we are told in
i_ R language that Mark Hawkins has meat and
• vegetables for sale, and the crabbed old lawyer is
ts likely as not to find his sign adorning a win

tfciegs for feminine adornment. The tall flagpoles
rre hung with effigies of the leading citizens, and

democratic wagon apart and laboriously putting

for rest and quiet. Change, they say. is rest; and
as lor quiet— well, somehow noise doesn't seem
quite as noisy in the mountain villages as it does
sear hot brick walls in crowded city streets, and
tired nerves do not succumb quite as quickly to
lie noise of 'he patriotic mountain boy celebrating
cs fcis one bisr day as they do to the passing of the
milk raron In the watches of the early morning in
town. The Beet of noise would make an interest

The Mountain Resorts Nearly Filled
Kingston V V.. July 4.— The Independence Day
ru t or the mountains began on Wednesday and
since then it has seemed that nearly ev.oj that
couid leave town was bound for the (.atsluHs. Of
o r«e th t r«- bl vet room Cor more In the* numer
; d sp acious resorts, and probably «iU be for
riew we,ks to come. But there surely tea rec
trd Fourth of July crowd among these hills to
night and the broad corridors of the big hotels
are cay scenes of summer life.
11l transT,ortation facilities have been severely
taxed both on land and water. But all has gone
wen and even the big trunks have arrived.
Of course, the ideal mountain weather which
has prevailed from the start still continues righ
along and there Is absolutely nothing to find fault
about- Many are now sorry they cou dn't com.
h-re sooner, in view of the early opening of the
season, and all seem in the mood to enjoy every
thing that comes their way.
Of course, the big steamer Hendrick Hudson
didn't bring up all the mountain visitors to-day
but she had a record load that would have tilled
another mezzanine deck and loft more comfort to
the crowds In the grand saloon. The -cen<>
a, the landings in the afternoon i. now full of
interest. Everybody is bent on getting .the bert
seat in the mountain train, and there's a big lot
of unrestrained human nature that spills over the
rim in" this eager effort. Another lively scene Is
at the Union Station in Kingston when the leading
West Shore trains are switched over on th« Ulster
& Delaware tracks. Everybody la hungry and
there is a grand rush for the hasty bite at the
railway restaurant, while the trainmen hook on
fre*h locomotives that are used to .limbing the
mountain grades. But there is little time lost in
this way. and the train rushes off for the green
bills at a lively pace.
Trout fishing is now in order throughout the
range and there are some good reports from th«
streams this week. Judging from the suc
cess at a Shokan fisherman on Tuesday, tfce^ei
princely fish must be pretty plenty this seaaon.
Having lour hooks to his line he took out three
fine trout from a single cast, which, of cocr**,
branded him as a novice at that. Experts never
use bo many hooks. Another fine capture weighed
51^ pounds and measured 26 inches. Black . bass
fiehlng In the Esopuc near Kingston Is also good
of late. A well known undertaker brought in two
fine specimens weighing more than five pounds the
other morning.
Henry Hosier, the artist, is among the knights
of the brush who always gather In the vicinity of
Arkville and Margaretville.
The Pine Hill village people celebrated the holi
day in great shape, and visitors who went there
to escape the observance were not wholly success
ful. This popular place has a big crowd of visitors
already, and all the many cottages In that region
will be fully occupied. In fact, five new bungaluws
are being erected on the Langford property, near
the village.
Herbert N. Casson, of "The Broadway Magazine. 1
who has a nne summer home overlooking Pine
Hill, gave a silver cup prize to the winner in a
boys" foot race to-day. This prize was wen by
Howard Wolcott in 1906 and by Ward Griffin last
The Howard Crosby cottage, now owned by the
widow of Dr. F. E. Schley and known as Dovedale,
has been much improved eince last season. It is
on the Birch Creek Road. William H. Carpenter
and wife, of New York, have the Valley Stream,
cottage for the second season. E. S. McVey, of
Brooklyn, is at the Cornish. W. A. Schmidt, also
of that borough, is again occupying the Dean cot
tage. The Henry Morton cottage, known as
Upenuff, is now occupied by his sons. Harry and
Qulncy L Morton.
The Catskill village people are growing enthusi
astic over theii arrangements for an Old Home
Week, to be held the latter part of September and
first rart of October. A full schedule of interest
ing events will be provided. Mr. Becker, manager
of the 111 fated Summit Hill Hou:e there, ls ar
ranging to entertain his many patrons elsewhere.
An effort has been made to secure the larpre Pros
pect Park resort on the river bluff, which has
been out of commission the last two seasons.
The Grand Hotel resort, on Summit Mountain,
begins the season with a large booking.
The new Squirrel Inn. at Smta Cruz Park,
Haines Falls, which replaces the old house de
stroyed by tire, is in charge of Mrs. H. T. Paul. It
has been open more than a month and the rooms
are nearly all occupied. Among the guests are
Warren Crane and family. Mr. and Mrs. George
Yernon. the Misses McLean. Mrs. E. Olcott. Helen
Kirchoff, Miss Kingdon ;ind Miss Van Santvoord.

music by the Symphony Orchestra.
Golf Promises To Be Popular This
Hotel Champlain. July 4. -With tho propitious
combination of bright sunshine and cool breezes the
Hotel Champlain opened its doors last Wednesday
for its nineteenth season. A large number of peo
ple from New York and further distant cities
have been waiting for this, and as a result the
trains and boats stopping here have been crowded
ull week.
The country, lying green and alluring as far as
the eye can reach, is in the full beauty of July,
and the lake, sparkling in the summer sun. calls
the guests to boating, bathing and fishing. The
anglers in this region say that fish are very
plentiful Just now, and many of the guests who
are devotees of the- gentle sport of Izaak Walton
are putting lines and rods in readiness for a day
of pleasure on the water with the probable result
that they will come back to the hotel at night
with a long string of fish.
Judging by the number of golf bags and clubs
that have arrived, the old Scotch game will be as
popular as ever here this summer. In fact, it would
be difficult to displace It in the favor of Hotel
Champlain guests. Frequent tournaments during
each season have been one of the causes of keep
ing golf to the fore here with both men . and
women, and tea served Saturday afternoons at
the clubhouse, which crowns ■ wooded knoll near
the coins. . has always added to the enjoyment of
the guests.
Already the guests have fallen into the pleasant
course of life here, and after a day of pleasure
outdoors some congregate in the evening in the
office to enjoy the concert, while others make up
a table of bridge, retire to the library with an
Interesting book, or wander out on the piazzas,
where, seated in comfortable rockers, they may
enjoy the music which drifts out to them through
the open windows.
