Otarlntta, X. C
An Englishman who recently
i foiled the Uuittd States wrote his
Impressions of the country upon bis
! return to his native land. Here la
Of course America is the land of
extremes. The people are either de
manding that all countries pn earth
Join In a, League of Nations so that
universal brotherhood shall be main
tained, or they want to shoot, at
siKht. the mug-wuang patriot who
would tarnish the glory of America
by having obligations with decayed
and played-out European lands. In
winter the thermometer signs away
below xero; and in summer it bubbles
up beyond the century. Just now
i something like a hundred million
Americana are gasping with heat.
New York is empty except for
some five million people who are ob-
i lifted to remain in "the poor little old
town." The wealthy have gone to
Newport, or Southampton or Long
Island, or to the Berkshire Hills, or
to charming Tiixedo. and there they
live the simple life as only American
Half the people one meets are mil
lionaires. The war made eighteen
thousand new millionaires in dol
lars, not pounds. They are very
hospitable. The current thing, how
ever has been to visit Europe. Per
haps you have met them.
As the temperature is torrid Amer
ica is adaptive. Many country houses
have their sleeping porches, and
there, in the open, slumber is sought
In the hot, breathless nights. Elec
tric fans are everywhere buzzing
overhead In the shops and restau
rants, and twirling with 'mechanical
sidewings so that the breeze be
spread. A little electric fan is hum
ming on the table as I write to re
lieve the 102 in the shade limpness.
Elder and even youthful British golf
ers would think It bad form to ap
pear on the links in anything but a
Jacket. The American, a stickler for
convention in most things appertain
ing to garb, leaves his coat in the
rlub houses and snore likely than not
has his shirt sleeves rolled up above
the elbows. . i
Every body wears a slraw hat. The
Panama of Hamburg is not very pop
ular. Mostly the round straw hat is
worn, and In the morning when the
great railway stations disgorge thou
sands of workers coming in from the
suburbs, you cannot looking from
your hotel window see people for
j Men's costumes are flimsy. The
: waistcoat is unknown. To wear
braces or suspenders Is to proclaim
j yourself an old-timer or an English
I man. Cool mohair suits are the
! thing, though If you want to admit
I It Is real summer, you wear a Palm
I Beach suit, canary colored coat and
pants, such as oil kings or steel mag
i nates are supposed to don in the gen
jernl winter sunshine of Florida.
What the Englishman would call
a nut though the word has not the
same meaning In America Is not
content unless he is wearing a silk
shirt. A silk shirt costs anything
, from twelve to twenty dollars. City
'clerks spent halt a week's wages to
buy a ailk shirt.
The most gorgeous silk shlrta are
not worn In New York. The most
wonderful silk shirts I have seen!
have seen have been In the smaller!
towns of the Middle West, In Illinois,!
Michigan, Wlecoiihln and Iowa, flam-
ing stripes of chocolate and green;
and puce, and collars of orange and.
At the risk of making myself un-,
pnular at home, I must say that I
think the young American girl is the
greatest creature on earth. And she
has taste. And, further, when it j
come to scantiness of attire In the
warn months she "goes some." La,
la! the costumes of the girls I saw
in France last year were demueness
Itself compared with the fli main ess of
the dress worn by the average Amer
ican girl this year.
iDelng a mere man, I dare not at
tempt to describe. The dresses, how
ever, begin low down and end high
up, and lace and silken ribbons,
shown through the gauze,, leave a lit
tle, but not much, to the Imagination.
The other day down at New Orleans
a clergyman was so shocked when a
bride walked up the aisle that he
ordered the church lights to be ex
tinguished and the girl to go and find
more clothing before he would offici
ate at the marriage ceremony.
Llfo Is made possible with ice. The
first thing that probably makes an
American mad in English is the ab
sence of Ice. Our tepid drinking wa
ter nauseates htm. Everything is
Iced in America.
The flint thing you do In the morn
ing Is to drink Iced water. At all
meals, whether at a quick lunch coun
ter or at the Rita, you are supplied
with a glass of water with pieces of
Ice In It. The last thing you do at
night Is to have the servant bring
you a pitcher Jangling with lumps of
Ice. The Ice chest is an Institution
In every household. Ice Is delivered
each day the same as milk.
No doubt the Ice habit Is a bad
one. But like most bad habits It is
very pleasant. Americans have many
pastimes, but the chief one seems
to be eating Ice cream. Talk about
the roast beef of old England! What
Is It compared with the Ice cream of
young America. The American has
the sweetest tooth, and when he, and
particularly she. Is, not munching
andy or chewing gum. the local drug

I felt quite a shock one day when
I waa introduced to the governor of
a State while he was sitting at a
drug store table eating vanilla loo,
cream. It had never entered my mind
that governors could eat vanilla flav
ored ice cream.
At the roar part of the establish
ment are nice glass covered tables
where you sit and while the hours
away consuming inordinate quantities
of ice soft drinks and listening to a
band, or a nickel in tho slot machine,
not infrequently a horrible but in
genious Gerihp.i contrivance of a fid
dle played by electricity.
Last Sunday I went for a solitary
five-hour walk among the beautiful
hills of Western Pennsylvania. Not
once did I meet a pedestrian out for
a stroll. Not once In the woods near
the town where I was staying and
overlooking the Ohio river, did I come
across any couples. How different

when, h()i and dusty, I got back to
Ice root beer, thero was a throng of
young people. In the drug store con

with walnuts. Ice cream with syrups.
Of course, everybody In America
has a motorcar called automobile
"for short." A man may have a
heavy mortgage on hi3 house, but he
must have a motorcar. Nobody is
anybody in America unless he has a
car. And women and young girls
drive as often as men.
While there are social dlst tactions
in the Eastern states, Just as much
as In England, they are practically
non-existent In the Middle West. The
atmosphere Is that of a big, good
natured fa inly. Everybody la "BUI"
or "Euphella" to everybody else.
There is bathing and eating ice cream
picnicing with plenty of Ice cream,
fighting the mosquitoes and consum
ing more ice cream. Why bother
about the League of Nations when the
evening s warm and a bucket of
cream is on the table? Somebody
ought really to write a book on the
Land of Ice Creajn.
