Open Air Gymnasium «*.i Lake
Placid— Governor Hughes
a.t &arainac.
I Lake Placid. N. V.. July ' 4.— Probably there
never was before such a gloomy Fourth in this
resort as this lias been. Though each of the big
hotels had its special menu to-day and special
displays of fireworks are set for this evening, the
general sorrow occasioned by the death of George
H. Dar.i«Js. the veteran railroad man, has not yet
passed. Mr. Daniels, as one of the first cottage
owners on Lake Placid, had during the many sea
son, he had passed here made many genuine
friends among the members of the summer colony
and the village people- The esteem in which he
■*■** held was perhaps best shown by the almost
breathless Interest with which the visitors to this
'.Adirondack resort and in other parts of the Adi
rondacks awaited the daily reports from his bed
-|a immediately preceding his death. Though
Mr. Daniels did not build his cottage on Signal
Hill until 1302. he early recognized the advantages
of Lake Placid as a summer resort, and purchased
the site of George A. Stevens, the owner of the
Stevens House, several years before. There he
and Mrs. Daniels, with their daughter, Miss Har
riett Daniels, visited annually, and there Mrs.
Daniels died three years ago this September.

Sinclair plans to put in a summer devoted to
f-ome literary work and mere rest. He "plans to
drimative "Prince Ha.r-n.' one of his earlier nov
els, which, singularly enough, was written many
: MSB ago at a little camp on Buck Island, in
Lake Placid, just across from the site of the camp
he is at present occupying. Mr. Sinclair says he
has no Intention of starting another literary col
ony in the Adirondack*, as he has had quite
enough of that sort of enterprise.

quietest day of the summer, because no 2rewarii
are allowed within village limits. Pleasure Mak

collection; and many favorites. Lovers of auto
mobile racing have gone to Glens Falls, waat
many machines have entered the contest.
The announcement of stakes by the racing as*
elation has relieved horsemen of all doubt as »
what to expect, and has shown the association to
be as liberal as possible. Saratogian3 will at
course hope that the meeting may be extend*
beyond the eleven days named. Saratoga is (pit»

a much greater Saratoga. The Business IWI
