As a demonstration of what the grit of America, Germany and Eng land can do, witness the following: on Saturday night three girls, or rather young ladies, who live in summer at the extreme West End. discovered that the ice in the family ice box was entirely consumed. There are no tele phones and order teams had long been put itf their stables. The thing required only a minute's thought how ever and the three gritty girls got out the wheelbarrow and trundled It three and one half miles to the only store on the island where ice Is reg ularly sold. Disdaining the offer of the proprietor to deliver it In the morning the girls wheeled a 40 lb cake back home. Seven miles the round trip. This feat is worthy of a place in the Kealth magazines we think; don't you? * Ml?* M. Elizabeth Kenyon and her sister.

Bailey Island This week seems to mark the high water mark of the season's popularity as each boat brings numbers of gay people who are bent on a few weeks airing. Among Saturday's arrivals were a number of New York's social set. who are down to rest before an other strenuous season. Mr. R. C. Thorp the well known Wall street man came down for a short stay with the other members of his family be fore going to Mt. Desert where he will spend a few weeks with some well known New York friends. Miss Eleanor Hastings' departure on Monday will be seriously felt as her concerts were much enjoyed this summer, and were a feature of the musical set. These last few beautiful days brought many people out in their bathing costumes. The water being as warm as has ever been known in these parts. It was also noticed that many new and beautiful suits were worn this year, which show to advan tage how tastily people can be equipp ed for their "aqua" plunge. Mr. Claude Oliphant's swimming was particularly enjoyed from those on the beach and his high diving was as daring and beautifully done as be fore. Mr. John Seward assisting him in water sports which were side split ting and much enjoyed. Many of the young ladies swim so well now that they cross and recross the cove, joining in water polo which they have inaugurated this summer and a new water game called Warn back, after a famous Indian summer swimmer of note. Most always a boat accompanies the swimmers should an accident befall any of them they can be assisted to shore. Mr. George Root dove a number ol times lately for a few friends who are studying diving from heights, and gave them many valuable points in turning and entering the water. Mr. H. D. Thorp arrived Saturday after giving many concerts which were much enjoyed by peoplel of his home town. This week a number or launch trips are to be made to some of the beauti ful Islands near by. On a recent trip lunch was prepared by the ladies and a trip made to the Basin a beautiful secluded spot. After lunch the party was entertained by Mr. H. D. Thorp's imitations of Vesta Victoria and Bonnie Maginn after which he Kave his his screaming farce, "Oh. say can you See." which nearly finish ed the merry party. It can be truly said it sparkles with wit and humor! The ground at Bailey Island seems to produce so many different and beau i!#v Sewers this year that our world be surprised to ettidy some of the gar dens which are cultivated by some of the cottagers. Perhaps the most beautiful of which is Mr. Addison C. Burnham's. Last week a beautiful night blooming sirius came out and some invited guests looked on its open petals with astonishment. Mr. Burnham's fad in owers is orchids. A number of rare and valuable ones which he possesses, blossomed Thurs day morning. Five of the most beautiful girls gave a pink tea Saturday in honor of one of them and had many novel ways to entertain each other. One of the new ideas was to see who could em broider the most beautiful monogram in three colors of silk on lavender batiste. The "Clarlta." Dr. Seward's boat, has gone to Bar Harbor on an ex tended cruise. With Dr. Seward were Mr. De Hart and Mr. Leeman. Miss Seward saw them off. Mr. John Seward, wife and fam ily left Bailey's Sunday for Haskell's Island for a clam bake, which was a great success. Mr. Seward said, "the trip was charming, but the clams were better."

Bathers In Mackerel Core have re cently experienced a growing dis agreeable experience. It seem* to hare become a practice for some of the cottager* to dump refu*e matter Into the waters of the core, and this Irlft* on to the shore and proves * pe*t to the many who de*lre to take advantage of the bathing privilege*.

Mr. Hub bell Is entertaining his many friends on the island with a fund of Indian reminiscences of the days when he was secretary of the Indian Commis sion. Teaching children to enter the wa ter with abandon seems harder than one would realize. Sunday some of the tiny tota were found to enter the water with pleasure If they were left to their own resources and not forced by their parents. Mothers should try this and see how well It works. Capt. John Stokes the noted swim mer swam off the core freely lately and showed some of the poorer swim mers some strokes which were mar vels In propelling the human form* about the water. He told how th* dog paddles about and then showed how the amount of lost energy could best be reduced to a minimum. Some of his over, under hand strokes took him through the water as If Impelled by some other force. He uses the racing aclssors stroke which all rood swimmers race with and It would be well to follow his advice. He now ex pects some good races, so practice up boys as many spirited brushes will ■oon come off and If you wish to come In near the finish It would be well to do some practising. R. 8.
