'arrametfta/5' on North Shore Ready for President When Congress Lets Him Out to Play Will Have Private Park and Congenial Neighbors,, BY JOHN ELFTiETH AVATKISS. ( The new capltnl of these BizzHng L'nlted States of ours is to be Mont sorrot. which Is on somo few up-to date mups. Motoring up along the Massachusetts "north shore." where sea and fores* meet, you pass l,ynn. the rlty of shoes, , whizz through the witch town of Salem and buzz thence out of the lnnd ot Hawthorne onward to the "Beverly shore." which Include*; all of thnt gar? den strip twlxt the ancient village, but modern shoo town, of Beverly proper and Capo Ann, paradise of I.ucy I*ar com. You breathe the balm of virgin pine forest fringing the foam-kissed bluffa and flit past fields of sweet clover, mustard and chamomlle, dotted by quaint windmill towers and separated by "dry walls" of stone. You rumble over old Beverly bridge, which Wash? ington himself descended from his coach to admire; you hike through tho witch woods, which tho Puritan fath? ers believed to he Infested with blood? thirsty lions, an>i as tho night of the nation's Brandest strip of coast lino smiles upon you. you pity poor Taft, sweating down thorp In his bachelor hall at Washington with Majors Domo Hilles and Butt. Montarrrnl mid Pnrrnroettn. Slanting Inland for a mile's spin he ji'ond BeVi ? village, you come upon MonUerri i, tho new summer capital of tho United .Slates, and fetch up at the Bate of the new summer White House. I'nrram'.'tta. which, some dla tance hack from the highway, and hid? den by a park of old trees, crowns a high hill, and whnp? eastern and south? ern windows command a view of Bev? erly harbor and the sea. The estate of the late Henry W. p?abody in an amplo mansion of twenty-two large rooms, of which that already occupied by Mrs. Taft com? mands the best sea view and tho full t> poKiire to ihe sea breeze. Tho Presi? dent's study looks famll'ar to thoso who vlslf-d him at Burgess Point dur? ing the two summers part, for tho desk and chairs used In that former summer home have been presented to him by Its owner, Mrs. R. B. Evans. The Tafts Bflrely regretted tho re? moval of the Evans cottage from Bur? gess Point to Marblohead, for they could get no other suitable house di? rectly upon the sea. But although Par ram'tta Is a mile farther from tho bench. It Is nevertheless a mile nearer to the President's favorite playground, the Myopia (Jolt Club. The former executive cottage Is holng cut In two sections, wh'ch will ho ferried across Batem Bay on pontoons. At Marble head It will ho put together again on a lot adjoining tho Crownlnshleld cb t?te, and ihr. space which It will leave upon the beach at Burgess Point Is to be transformed Into an Italian gar? den. Tho garage nt Parramettn will ac? commodate throe of tho four White House motor cars that will be shipped up from Washington?the big summer touring car, Mrs. Tuft's elecjtrlc buggy, und the automobile bnggage wagon. Clubhouse for Ofllec Staff. The entrance to the president's pri? vate park Is commanded by a pic? turesque lodge, and this cottage will be used, not as an office, as has been stated, hut as a sort of clubhouse for the President's ofTleo force. The summer executive ofllces will he a rn'.le away. In the rooms of the build? ing of the Beverly Board of Tra.Cn. Here Chief Telegrapher Smithers. of the While House, has been arranging his special wires which will connect the summer cnplttl with the world at b in? and o\ ersea/l. Th< Pi-ii-ident is nnt ex v rtntl to visit tt ??.? cnlces. which will oe In cnargr or Secretary Hille? and a picked sqund of f tenogtaphors and cler ts. His sec retary will motor out to Parrametta ej;.i morning with such documents as need special attention, .ml after re? ceiving the day's instructions will re? turn to Beverly village. This village is one of th; oldest In N-w England, hiving been rettlvi In iGt.o, onlv a deead* after th? Pilgrim fathers landed on Plymouth R>ok, nlly mlies to the south by the way the Llrd file?. Indeed, Beverly -an boast of having been an Independent lncorro r. t-.'l town for 243 years. "Beggarly" No Longer. By wav of, emphasizing the contrasts wrought by time they will show you In the Essex county records a peti? tion, ma\e by one of Beverly's found? ers. Roger Conant. to the general court, in 1?71, to change the name of 1hc settlement from Beverly to Bud-, 'letgh. And good Father Conant "->ased his petition on "the great dislike ar.d discontent of many of our peon.e be? cause (we being a small plaeel It hath caused on. us a constant nickname cf Beggarly"' Vnr Beverly can be called "Beggar? ly" no longer.

THE TELEPHONE is the coal man's best salesman. Many of his customers he never sees, for their orders come by wire and their checks by mail. If you move into a new house or have an un? expected need of fuel, you can often save a day's time by telephoning your order. In the mining and shipping of coal, the Bell Telephone has become an important factor. The wholesale markets and sources of supply are kept in constant tauch with the Bell Long Distance Service and the danger of a coal famine greatly reduced.

Telephone la the Oenter of the 8yetem._e cottage which serves as its club house, is preferred by him, for golf, to the more picturesque Essex County Club, whither he goes for less athletic diver? sions. Hamilton, where the Myopia links spread themselves over the rolling llelds. Is five miles due north front Bev? erly, by a road that gradually points the executive touring car fnrthor and farther from tfie sea. It is here, at Hamilton, that So.cretary of the Navy Meyer and Representative Augustus Peabody Gardner, the "progressive" son-in-law - of Senator Lodge, have their summer estates. The Myopia is t more of a held than a house club, and after making his rounds of the links I thero the President will return to j Montserrat for luncheon at Parrametta. Afternoon Pleasure*. Each afternoon is devoted generally to motoring, for the north shore is the paradise of the motormanlac. From I. Beverly village the highway threads Its way in and out, now trimming close to the wave-lapped rocks, scattered beaches or shimmering, coves on the right, and now dipping back, on the left, into the woods or the cool shad? ows of the hill crests with their plum? age of stately trees. Two miles beyond Montserrat Is Prides Crossing, another settlement of fine homes?notable among which Is Ii. C. Krkk's?and from here, the Pres? ident passes directly into "Beverly Farms.'' originally two great farms, in fact, but now a checkerboard of great country estates, surrounded by virgin foresu and meadows, main? tained In all of the aboriginal gran? deur. Hero the executive touring car spins past that cottage where the "Au? tocrat of tho Breakfast Ta'ble," Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes, dated his lot tors "Beverly-by-the-Depot," and near? ly opposite is tho old houso of Lucy Larcom, who. on this very road, used to see. at the window, wistful "Han? nah, binding shoes." Just off shore "Great Misery Island" now loomai up, a rough emerald in-, crusted In sapphire, and beyond I? West Manchester, then gorgeous Man chester-by-the-Sea, whither tho Presi? dent often takes Mrs. Taft to visit her chum, Miss Helen Boardman, active head of tho American Red Cross So? ciety. The "Singing Seuida." Here the summer capital bathes, at Mlascanomo Beaoh, which, with its famous "singing Hairdo"?so-called be? cause they chirp whenever you tread them?la shown in the accompanying pnotgrnph. .At Manchester-by-the-Sea Is also the Wealthy Essex County Club, the Presi? dent's favorite stopping place in these parts. It 4.8 an all-round country club and: Its picturesque clubhouse Is the favorite rendezvous of the diplomats and millionaires of the neighborhood It is tho most popular spot for portico life In the afternoon* and the. social ccntro of tho entire north shore. But four miles farther on and the presidential automobl'.o reaches Mag* of the North Shore. Upon the beach hero is erected a grandstand, from which Is witnessed events in the horse ring nnd beach race cour.se. And ten? nis tournaments, as well as races and open-air horse shows, amuse those who motor to Magnolia Beach, which is a favorite pleasure ground of Miss Helen Taft. The Reef of Xoriunn'a Woe. From these same sands Is viewed tho famed "Reef of Norman's Woe." that frowning mass of rock which was the scene of Longfellow's ''Wreck of the Hesperus." You remember the linos: "And fast through the midnight dark and drear, Through tho whistling sleet and snow Like a sheeted ghost the vessel swept Tow'rdB tho Reef of Norman's Woe." Sometimes the President motors south from F.evcrly to Marblehep.J Neck, there to stop at the Eastern Yacht Club, where fashion comes to sail and dine and dance, especially while the Eastern squndron keeps its anchors In these sands. But Mr. Tuft's yachts, tho Mayflower und Sylph, will be anchored In Beverly Cove, where the President will havo the use of a private Wharf from which u motor bont will take him and his friends out when sailing parties rtro upon tho schedule. And it Is here, at Heverly Cove, thnt Major Porno Butt will have his summer quarters?In the cottnge of H. O, Woodbury. Evening'Porch Parties. The President's evening program op the North Shore customarily Includes' porch parties at home, at the clubs or at the cottages of neighbors. And of1 congenial neighbors ho always has u plethora in those parts. His favorite plnymate. John Hays Hammond, lntc special ambassador to tho coronation of King fieorge. has his summer homu up heyon 1 Magnolia and near Glouces? ter, and Justlco Oliver Wendell Holmes, son of the poet, is at Manchester-by tho-Sea. where also the French. Her? man, Russian, Brazilian and Italian summer embassies are established. And right in Beverly* Itself nre Mrs. L. Z Letter, of Washington, widow of the Chicago merchant prince, and Mrs Longworth, with whom her son, Repre-1 scntatlve Nicholas Longworth, and her daughter-in-law, Mrs. Alice Roosevelt Longworth. now spend tho greater part of each North Shore season. And tht-ro will be near at hnnd the "newspaper colony," composed of n dozen or so of Mr. Taft's Journalistic friends, who will come up to Beverly and take cottages as soon as Congress shuts up and lets tho servant of the people out'to pluy.
