AMERICA'S FAMOUS i SUMMER RESORT, Interesting Letter From a Guest 'at Atlantic Ciiy, N. J.. j VJ- ,.r V- i 'r ' Tell Sonic Experience of Famous Seatkle Retort Atlantic City, N. J., Sept. 8. (Special) The excursion season at Atlantic Oity is over and the July and August thousands of visitors are uow reduced to hun drods. Still the bettor class of hotola were filled over the week end and for Labor.day holiday Monday, and the stranger to the board-wallc multitudes might havo thought the place crowded on Sunday. Some went to church and nearly all took a dip iu tho surf. The tide was flow ing during bathing hours and the broakers were heavy. The humor comedy is tho same on tho beach as elsewhere, only one gots a littlo nearer view. Every body is at play and mestly off guard- Now aud then tho life patrol brings in a man baroly saved from drowning aud the curious or morbid pause a mo ment while the doctors and at tendants revive the exhausted one iu the tent hospitals on tho bench. The game goes ou aud tired, or joyful and exhuberaut humauity, adds to "the Bait of tho earth,1' the salt of God's great sea and the surcharged gales and zephyrs, and absorb3 like u sponge on tho sands the heaveuly aud nbt too hot Sep tember suushino. At church, Sunday, tho congregation was uskod to thou and there make ackilWledgemeut iu a thauk oft'oriug for benefits they had at tained through those things aud they seemed not wholly thankless when the plate wenttouild.' As he cprae out oftfhurch Sun day morning, a motherly woman past middle age, ' restetKconfi deutly her baud, first on hip shoulder, then on his arm, sup porting her descent of the steps, luvoluutanly he placed his hand ou hers, then tipped his hat ur she passed on . aud withoufalook nig back walked on tin? other way.- As he .did so, a more youthful voice was heard behind him saying: "Mother, did vou think that was Kenneth?" She had, and he was thankful. It was a beautiful touch of home that warmed his heart. Tho colored brother is numer ous aud useful here. He largely serves room and table at hotels, pushes the boardwalk roller chairs, help to sail the excursiou yachts and is the whole band aboard these popular pleas ure crafts. After tho sails are up and tho boat is out of the iulot tho baud appears. One cheerful negro with a French harp aud guitar and singing voice good euough for a littlo "rag." That's the wholo orches tra including the soloists. But water and any kind of music go so well together that usually the averago American (Jargon finds itself, too, singing tho popular southern airs and ragtime before the ten mile cruise is over. The hotels are good, that is the better ones are, the table service exoollout, rooms comfort able and airy couldn't be otherwise wheu tho sea air blows aud prices reasouablo as such things go. But where you hit the snag is when you rnn up agaiust a fixed hotel "rule" iu tho eifort to get somothing they've got a plenty but uot ou the card : A mau wanted a bath. He had to havo it or, so he thought. Old ocean was there but the bath robe empori ums were olosod, as it was night. One cau't just "go iu a swim ming" at a populous coast resort even at night aud then saltf wator won't lather. He strolled in, tired and near midnight, from"-the boardwalk and ocean piers and things, just sot upon a hot batli and relaxation in order to cleanliness and a beautiful first night's sleep to the accom paniment of tho surf's somnolejit ronr. But it was not for him He found that the "rule" lock ed up the linen- room at ten sharp so tight that the Droprie- tor-himself could uot get a face1 towel after that hour. Aud a follow couldn't wipe ou his pocket handkerchief. Not. at a resort. Then the "bath maids" went off at tho same hour, and who could turn the water on or ompty the tub? The guest must say before 10 o'clock p. m. that he wanted a bath so that towel and water could be reserved. Now in Louisville, you kuow, thoy would unlock the city reser voir to accommodate an uuwash od guest who wanted as much as a teacupful of water any old time 'o night I But that's dif ferent. Next night was Satur day aud a compelling time for a bath. It was also perhaps the most interesting evening of the week to be ou the moou aud and electric lighted boardwalk. "Guest" took a hard grip ou tho life line and went to the desk early a little after nine to re serve his towel aud have his water meaBurod out. The fol lowing couversatiou was heard : Olerk: "What do you want to take your bath in about fif teen minutes?" Guest: "No, I don't kuow wheu I want to take it. Whou I get tired and roady to go to bed." Olerk (siniliugly:) "You'll havo to take, it before ten o'clock. The linen room is lock edup aud the "bath maids go off then." Guest: MOh well, you get the towels uow aud show me the bath room. I au turu ou tho wa,ter when I get r,oady." Clerk: "No umJL'hat's the il 1. M And so thW'Raie" literally washed "Guest" and put him to bed two hours bofore the Sat urday bight big parade of hu manity on, the Boardwalk was over and two hours before he ex pected to be sleepy and ready. Note: Tho "bath maid is not a mermaid at all. The id only a cotbp'd'womau who turns ou the water, places the towels and kuueks-at your door to say its ready. Diroctiore guwus? Oh, yes I They are hero too, and the sweet way for a woman to be seeu and noticed of all" men is to exhibit herself ott the boardwalk in one of these Parisian creations. The smarter the gown the surer the notice. " There is nothing lack ing in these costumes as worn here by the occasional "smart" women except the actual slit up the sido of the skirt for a showy freedom of limb. Aud that here, by tho seaside, is an unnecessa ry detail, People sit iu comfort able chairs on the piers and along the boardwalk, listening to the music or the roar of tue surf and watching for odd aud beautiful thiugs in the passing humor cur rent. They see them and smile or iu their hearts applaud, and this is half the show for very many visitors. Whipped a Boy. J, F.
