... The Driftwood and Cottages. The recent arrivals at this superior house have come at a very opportune time, for, although the weather was bad the latter part of the preceding <v,eek, a storm at sea has caused a su perb surf to thunder up against the high and mighty rocks which outline the eastern coast of the island. The Driftwood, being located directly above the cliff, affords a beautiful Ecenic effect from the piazzas, which command an unexcelled view of this magnificent sight. Recent guests who will remain all summer and who arrived last week are Miss Nanny Dorsey and Mrs. C. Bradley of Baltimore, Miss Matilda Wells-of New York City and Miss E. Parkmann of Portland. Many literary people and well-known musicians will arrive late in July. The Homest'-cd. The Homestead is welcoming many ' of the congp^idl set of refined people that it..>*'*d had the pleasure of en-j tert^Jliing in past years. Many nature r*jdents find an ideal environment for a minute study of the various forms of life found on the island here, and ar tists discover on all parts of this end of the island some new stimulus and challenge for the pen or brush. The gues>ts at present are as follows: Mrs. T. B. Brandt, Misses Lida R. and Edith R. Brandt, all of Philadelphia; Mr. ■R. M. Smith of Chicago, 111.; Miss Al ma P. Smith, Philadelphia; Mrs. L. G.

This superb little cottage has a very good season to look forward to. Mrs. Johnson has already many board ers and several roomers. Mr. William Robert. Dempster of Boston, already mentioned in these columns, is to star at. Chebeague July 17th upon the invi tation of the Congress Square Asso ciates.

This win ter he has been engaged by the Jeffer son Co. of Boston to star in William Havin Jr.'s play, "The Moon-Calf." Mr. Dempster starred with Minnie Du pree, the well-known actress at the Jefferson theatre in Portland, in the play written by himself entitled "The Road to Yesterday."

The Johnson has in many respects begun a very good season. Besides the guests -who hat»e registered, a large number of cottagers come in to take their meals.

The Woodbine and Cottage*. This season makes the- twenty third year that Mrs. H. S. Sinnett has successfully ■conducted the Woodbine and Cottage.

The Woodbine and its guests have helped build tip the social standard of the Is land and visitors as ■well as residents appreciate these facts to the utmost.

The season is well under way here with frequent arrivals by every boat.

Upon being asked what his views of the war were, Mr. Roeder declared that this terrible war was a decision between the old standards and the new. "The stand I ards of America are en/irely different from those in Europe and we don't understand the situation fully. Abroad they play lottery. They have not reg ulated the saloon question. If they want land they fight for it. In Ameri ca we buy it in a civilized way. We bought Alaska and paid for the Span ish possessions that we took from our foes, and above all wp. would stick to all of our treaties, which Europe has not done to hers. The old European standards will develop into standards '■such as own own as a result of the war and all concerned will be better off for it." j Mr?. Edwin W.
