Hatlle, Mrs.' Jenkins, Is nt' Newport, with the baby, as I wroto you ; Dr. and Mrs. Gate wood will spend the month bf August with Dorothy Gatewood North' at West Point, while Captain North Is at I'latts burg; and the Toy Dixon Savages Mrs. Savage was Hildrcth Gatewood aro going to, spend their vacation In the mountains of North Carolina. IThcy tell me there is no more beau tiful scertry In this country than North Carolina bonsts; and last summer when Mr. Savage' was visiting the Gatewoods at their- camp on Raquette Lake, he used always to say that the Adiron dacks were Indisputably beautiful "but you Just ought to see Toxaway," The place they have selected for their summer outing Js not Toxaway proper, but the Kanuga Club, which Is but a few miles distant and' equally well dowered as to scenery. It Is a sort of club-hotel, frequented by the most de lightful people, where each new guest must be sponsored by some of the habitues of the place; and Hlldreth is looking forward to a thoroughly good time. Her cousins, the two daughters of Gen. Julian Whiting, who was a re cent visitor at Mrs. Gatewood's, are also there for the summer. -- Mrs. Gatewood's sister, Lulle Critcher, who Is now visiting Dorothy NorU), Is going to Goshen, Va., In August to stay with her brother, John Critcher; and the oiner sister, ivnio, is at province town, as I doubtless told you before, busy, with her .paints and brushes. inere you navo tno uatewoort fam hjUfe Hiding, trout fishing in the clear cool mountain streams and similar sprts.

Do you recollect, that I said something several weeks ugo about our meotlng a particularly interesting British army officer who wns heio on leave and diplomatic business? Ills name. If you have forgotten, was Norman Thwultcs, British born, university bred, Atueiicuu experienced, and heru of one ot tho rout luulduiils of the lino in blunders. Well, cnptuln 'Thwnltes hurrtca Back to hnglunu the other day, und along cume, presently, a letter, it was imileu with very bum announcement that It huu been "OPE.s'ED BV CENBOlt," and was hn the stationery of the Conrtltu tlohul Cluu oi 1-ondon.

' Do you realise what that really meant, Susan? It was his quiet way of saying good-by. Th same day that letter came, the newspapers told that over 4,000 British officers had been kill ed. or captuied In thiee weeks. Captain Thwolles Just wanted us to know ho wus going to the front. That Is about all that an officer needs to ray by way of farewell. "Whether I am to rctuin to America later, on I don't knowi" What a specimen ot British incapacity to be sentimental! Still, he wouldn't need to prove that he could be sentimental, after the things I havo heard about. him. lie could have well, not to be personal, almost. any girl I know, if he'd only mention it!

Ellzaboth Elllcott Poe has gone to Wakefield to spend a few days with Mrs. George Barnott, and I'mVwIlIIng to wager that the two of them are busy discussing plans for the Woman's Section of' the Navy League in general and the National Service School Alumnae In particular, Mrs. Barnett Is forming a surgical dressings class at Wakefield and Will thus qualify for the honor rqll of the First National Service School; while before she left town Miss Poe had fiom twenty to thirty women working under her every morning at the busi ness of making scientific bandages and dressings. Now, that ,nearly. everybody Is out of town the 'classes meet only every other, day. They have a.- Red Cross nurse to-see that everything Is done correctly and you'd be surprised to know how many 'dressings, scientific and sanitary in every respect, have been completed and laid away for fu ture use. ii rs.
