Wa wawasee Pake is the finest sheet of water in Indiana and the Pns are such splended big fellows that fish chasers love to fish here. Vawter Park hotel sets up a good meal for the tired automobilist, price 50c daily 7 5c on Sunday and auto-fans and fish bugs meet to eat and tell whop pers about catches, losses, punctures and r?rfect scores. Dr. Will McGar vey is the "boss" of this hotel and "Doc" certainly treats us fine when we go there. St; Joseph County's real good rid ing is right here in town and in Mish- awaka; there are attempts at good roads in the country but the smooth 3C A GREAT ' TEIF . . ' - : . i. :v - .: . v. ; - -.

Thre? stretches of road out South Michi gan, Edwardsburg Road and Port ago Avenue have been Improved and car folks can do much to cons?rve theso roads by not riding In the ruts though no signs to that effect are posted. 'Misiiawaka has added another mile east to her already splendid paving equipment and the first which Is also the most lasting impression of the two cities is received by travelers from the East who come over the Second street and Vistula pavement there is an eight mile strtteh of pave ment through these cities which rests and puts "p'P' into the arms of the Motor tourist and it's now a joy to meet the east and wesl approaches, -j it i .

Railway Co, for cities are now Judged much moro Intelligently by what autoists see passing through them than by the appearance of the station, which is fortunate for South Pend, but that is another story. North and South Koads Had North and South travelers are not so lucky, the road to Xile.s is a fright on the north side of the river and while the Portage Avenue drive is much improved by tho three mile stretch of new gravel it is hardly feasible for the tourist though a good road. For a taste of New England motoring go straight out Portage av. altruist ten miles, find school house on corner at left, go straight ahead through a new looking road bearing left toward Puchanan. This is a hilly country and the views are Fupurb. Parron LaJte is the blue gill center for folks hereabouts and the blue gillers now use motors to get there. Reed, tho landlord of the Hotel, takes splendid care of South Benders when An At t motive Resort. Miles Inn, twenty miles northeast through Edwardsburg via Stevens ville. is an attractive resort on Chris tiana Lake. The Edwardsburg Road is developing a rut fast on- its first three miles but It's a good wavy road from there on to that place, but after you get to Edwardsburg it's the real, old, back-country, article deep heavy sand. A short distance east of here you can turn north and go to Eagle Iake or to Painter Lake. I haven't tried the grub at these lakes but have heard 'tis good. Leave Ed wardsburg on the Cassopolis road and go to Diamond Lake, drive around the lake and if you have a stout car and plenty of punch left in your arm muscles head due south, jog west a few times and follow the Christiana!

This circuit is a big half day's ride. A whole day can be devoted to -it and enjoyed. Go east on Jeffersor. boulevard past Sunnyside; between three and four miles the sand is deep, but not so bad as it looks; keep straight on past MIshawaka cemetery. This road leads to county line bridge, which cross, turn left at top of hill into Elkhart roi.d; go on to Elkhart's main down town district, go out north on J the principal street, cross bridge, turn left and ask for Kawardsnurg roau v.'hich Is a few blocks west, a grocery on northeast corner marks this turn. This road is heavy near town but im proves as you proceed north. It lea.ds right into Edv.-ardsburg nine miles from Elkhart. Mrs. Sherman at the Sherman House In Edwards burg Is very senial and will cook you up a splendid dinner at a very' reason able charge. You are twenty miles out now and I presume hungry. The trip home can be made via Niles twenty-one miles or via Granger fourteen miles; this makes your route pass over the macadam roadway which commences at Stover school house five miles from South Bend. Good livening Trip. The Edgewater trip Is one taken by some South Benders each evening. The eating hero is tho beJt yet, as Rose Hillman Is cook and the very best things in the country are served at this club. The roa.1 is closed for one-half milo above Berrien Springs so most cars go via Puchanan these days.

Go east on principal east and west thoroughfare in Premen through Napane to Mil ford Junction; from there, follow rail way east to Syracuse forty-three milef!, where you have choice of two roads to Goshen. Hit the L. S. & M. S. paralell road west of Goshen; It's three miles shorter to South Pend if you turn west at the eighteen mile corner than if you go through Elk hart. Take in Elkhart and come back on the north side of tho river starting out on Lexington av. This Is some ride. If you include Elkhart you'll have over ninety miles on your auto meter. Indian Lake is a pretty ride north of Niles about twenty-three miles from South Pend. Go over the vir. duct at Michigan Central Station In Niles, keep to the left out past the stand pipe; follow this road through to Summerville, Mich. Here turn left, cross the Dowagiac Creek and Jog north again. Follow this road until you reach the east and west trolley line; pass trolley station; one-eighth of a mile takes you to Wicst's Resort on beautiful Indian Lake. If a fish erman is smart he will take some minnows along to Indian Iake. The Leeper Park Water Works pumping station has the right sort.
