BRANDT'S EUROPEAN TRIP An Interesting- Synopsis of His Seven Weeks Foreign Travel. WAS AT THE; HAGUE llroflicrs Itomillotl Atlrr 30 Tciirs Hopurutlou ?Tho Rhino nml lit JUiiyllfiiMlIo? llrhitu llncu Blilliy Honvonlor? of II I* Summer ?Mittntr ?IIo Snyw Mlillo Tliero nrv Itniij Fine PI nee* 'I'lioro Is No Pluco Like lluiue. The following travels of one of Ports? mouth's most prosperous .and progres? sive business men, Mr. Adolph Brandt, will no; doubt prove Interesting reading. Mr. Brandt, who Is so widely known In this section, concluded this year to cross the "briny" and have a peep at the people of the old country, and to observe their habits nnd customs, and to that end made extensive prepara? tions to enjoy a prolonged holiday. On the 21Pth of June he hoarded the majestic ocean greyhound Fuerst Bis? marck at her pier In the great me? tropolis, where all the comforts of a homo had been secured, and where the gentleman during the eight days and six hours which intervened between that time and his landing at Cuxhaven, on the other side of the great Atlantic, enjoyed in the highest degrees possible those pleasures which come to those who have earned in the fullest sense a short respite from the worry, annoy unces and heavy cares of business. At Coxhaven Mr. Brandt was met by his brother, whom he had not seen for thirty long years, and a nephew whom he hnd not seen for a like period. It was a huppy meeting, after Inquiries one for the other had brought them facei to face, neither knowing, or. In other words, remembering the favor of the other. Leaving the confusion created by the landing of the great ship's complement of passengers and the Uln incident to such occasions, Mr. Brandt and his kinsmen took the train for the great city of Hamburg, great for Its many lines of fine steamships traversing the world, great for its quaint, narrow streets, and Its hospitable people. Two days were spont sightseeing, and then the burial place of First Bis? marck was visited?"Friedrichsruhe." j This Is a village which Mr. Brandt de scribes ns being most picturesque, and his description of the romantic scenery around nnd nbout Friedrichsruhe Is in? teresting in the extreme. Next came Berlin?and who Is 1t that at one time or another has not read with eager delight stories of thin won? derful foreign city- Here Mr. Brandt spent two weeks. He says that nearly all of the ancient style of architecture has disappeared from view, and In Its stead modern Ideas prevail, and those who knew the old Berlin would scarce? ly recognize their old love In her new dress. Bresleau, Prussia, a province of Silicia. was the attraction for the next five days, nnd then back to Berlin for two days. Potsdam, where the plot of so many Interesting stories have been laid, followed, and closely adjoining it. Sangsace came in for its share of at? tention. Here It is that the Gorman Emperor has a magnificent summer palace, sur? rounded by most excellent hunting grounds, driving parks, fishing lakes, and everything else necessary to assist the monarchs of that country Is mak? ing life one glad, sweet song, und to those who In fancy are fond of viewing the beautiful, Mr. Brandt points with pleasure lo this romantic nnd pic? turesque spot. Breaking the spell of enchantment which bound him here, Berlin again found herself honored by his presence, hut not for long, as Mr. Brandt wns bent on seeing ns much of Europe as possible ?in the time ho hnd allotted for that purpose, and rapidity of thought and action being necessary, he soon sought new scenes, and Cologne for four days Invited him to inspect her magtdflcent cathedrals, one of which Doing the inrgest nTTCI probably the most magnificent In the world. Cologne, too. has other winders, to first awe, and then Inspire the visitor within her gates, leaving impressions that are ever pleasant of the scenes with ten? dencies of the elevating and soul-in? spiring nature. Now to the Seven Mountains nnd the world-famed Rhine nnd tho Draehfels nittuntalns. Here the Iron monarch of the rail came Into service, but on the return to Cologne Mr. Brandt had an opportunity to view the enchanting scenes with which nature has provided this, the grandest water course In the world, from a standpoint of the beau? ties of nature. A sail upon the Rhine, says Mr. Brandt, is of Itself worth a trip. Reelng here and there dotted about upon the surface of tho river beauti? fully formed islands covered with the most gorgeous colored nnd fragrant of flowers. The mountain Bides, too, ndd additional grandeur to the scene, as they are covered with vineyards In the highest state of cultivation, furnish? ing n decidedly harmonious background to the colors of the picture. But let us hurry on to Brussels, Bel glum, reaching there by a trip over the mountains, viewing lovely valleys ? in the way. Here days Innumerable, says Mr. Brandts could be spent with? out tiring of those sights which all ap? preciative people admire and carry li\ their mind's eye forever after. But the giiy and giddy city of Paris Is the next on the program, and to that famous city Mr- Brandt turns his face. Seven days were spent In the gay capital or Prance n,u'' lkIr- Brandt says, he was much impressed with the vivacious and pleasure-loving French people. Here a drive was taken through the Exposition grounds, which Is gen? erally expected to prove such an at? traction n> the civilized world In 1900. But this expectation may not be real? ized, as Mr. Brandt says that already the heavy muttcrlhgs of a dissatisfied pe< iMc arc heard there, and the Im? pression prevails In Paris and III other foreign cities that no exposition will bis held, but, in Its stead, a revolution will shake Prance, such as had never been known in nil Its history. .He said the grounds were sufficient to accommo? date vast throngs, nnd that many of the buildings had been completed, pro sen! lug Imposing appearances' .and grand architectural taste. Hero lie vis? ited tin- famous Madeline end Notre Bame Churches, and other points of In? terest which has made the city of Paris famous. From Paris to Versailles, then to Calais, and across the channel to Do ver. England. This section Is tamed for Its hop growing, as Norfolk county is for Its trucking Interests, and Mr. Brandt snys he was Impressed with the scenes he saw at the hop pickings, as It reminded him so forcibly of home and our strawberry fields, when that luscious berry Is being gathered (or the markets London, the city of fog 'and damp mornings, wus not forgotten, and six days were profitably spent In this great European metropolis* At tho Liv? erpool street station Mr. Brandt, In speaking of the Immensity of tho rail? road travel, says that eighty-five3 Bub urban trains and sixty-five continental trains arrive and leave every twenty four hours. ? From London to Harwick a steamer carried Mr. Brandt across a part of the English channel and the North Sea | to the "Hook of Holland." Next came Rotterdam, where the | hours sped swiftly by, eo much of In? terest there Is to be seen. But time waits for no man, so a train was llnally taken for The Hague, In Holland, brought Into now prominence recently by the action of the Czar of Russia In calling what is known as the Peace Conference. Next to be visited was the great watering place, Scheveningen-in-thc Sea, and after its mysteries had been explored The Hague wus again the ob? jective point. Amsterdam followed, and then Rot? terdam, where, after summing up what had been the result of his seven weeks' trip In the way of sights seen and In? formation gleaned, Mr. Brandt again I took passage across the great Atlantic | ocean, arriving home Wednesday, Sep? tember 6th. where he was warmly wel? comed by his hosts of friends, to whom he has been extremely Interesting, tell- I ing of the many advantages of an Eu? ropean trip.
