The New Granite Spring Hotel at Long Island opened for the ,summer season last week, and is now daily re ceiving tourists. During the past winter and spring the proprietor has expended thousands of dollars in al terations and improvements, and to day he has the largest hotel in the bay. Forty new rooms have been built and all these have hard pine floors, the furnishings being iron b«*ds, hair mattresses, lace curtains and ruf?s. The large dining room capable of seating 400 guests has been repaint ed and decorated, and presents a fine appearance. The small dining room will be used for a music room and here will take place musicals, whist par ties and socials. Baths and toilets have been installed and guests here can enjoy a salt water bath right in the hotel. Mr. Ponce has secured the service of a Boston chef and the ta ble will be supplied with the best in the market. Shore dinners will be served daily and during the season many organizations will have their reunion here. The hotel will remain open until Sept. 15. and we trust Mr. Ponce will have a successful season. Some people are as tiresome with their airs as an overworked phono graph. RAILROADS. In Effect May 10.
