Different members spoke of their visit to
the Agricultural College, some seeming well
satisfied, others saying they thought the

of the common farmer but more for the

over what we could of the farm. Mr. Guil
ford has been building considerable wire
fence and has a very fine barn.

The following is an extract from a letter
written by Miss Helen Duff to her parents:
Grande Hotel, Antwerp,' June 10, '91
Here 1 am in this lovely old Flemish city.
sitting in the reading room of the hotel
which outlooks the beautiful court We
arrived here about eight o'clock last even
ing, which is seven hours later than eight
o'clock in Owosso. The twilights are long
here and it was just sunset as our boat
reached the dock. We took an omnibus
for Grande Hotel five others from the boat
came with us who left this evening for
Drussels. I was quite sorry to part with
some of these pleasant companions. We
mailed letters, then took a stroll down the
boulevards where tho annual fair was taking
I had to stop in the middle of the last
sentence as the ladies were ready to go out
and have not had one minute's time since.
The days are so filled up with 6lght seeing
that at bed time 1 am very tired, besides it
is not easy to write by the light of one
candle. To go back to Tuesday June 1ft a.
m. We had a good deal of business to at
tend to, money, cablegrams, etc., etc, then
we went to tho cathedral of Notre Dame.
Magnificent! At twelve o'clock tho cele
brated "pictures are unveiled, and we got
there almut fifteen minutes before. ' Had to
buy a ticket to see the pictures (one franc)
and a guide took us from one to another.
I wish I had tlmo to describe or attempt to
describe them to you and the Impression
they left upon my mind, but I cannot
wfll speak of one, however, a painting of
the head of Christ on white marble by Ieon
de Vinci. No matter where you stood the
eyes followed you and gave you a feeling
that it was really living and could sneak.
I must tell you how we fooled the euido
at the CathredraU He was after a franc
from each one of course and followed us to
the door. We were Just getting out our
purses when he espied somebody else
escaping him and while he rushed after
them we walked out On reaching the
corner we saw him frantically pursuing us.
out we sougnt reruge m a passing car and
have been exulting ever since. In the after
noon we took a drive over the city and in
the evening took the train for tho Zoo,
where we heard fine music by a military
band and saw tho people. All the small
children here go with their legs uncovered.
nan socks, ana a great many with bare
arms. You see boys twelve and thirteen '
years of age with bare legs, except the
the little strip of black sock above the shoe,
and trousers made Bloomer style, carrying
canes and that is the upper and middle
class, ine lower class of children and
grown people wear the bright knit stockings
and big sabots. It looks very funny. The
women of this class and the middle class I
notice seldom wear any head gear. They
waiK trie streets Knitting, just as I have
6een In pictures. The streets themselves
are very quaint and picturesque, especially
the older ones. Everything is white brick
and stone, no grass except in parks and
private grounds. The houses are high and
nai on mo suies, mat is, no projections like
balconies, etc., and the sidewalks are so
narrow that in some places two people can
not stand side by bide, but they walk In the
road more than on the walk and everything
is ciean, clean, clean. Above the doors of
many corner stores are shrines and there
are so many lovely statues, etc. Of course
we passed Reubens' home on our drive and
saw his statue in the park. Everything is
Reubens' here. Having so much to attend
to in the morning we could not take In gal
leries and other sights, but I got such a
splendid idea of the people and the way
tney live rrona our drive that I was satisfied.
Everything was so strange and new, the red
tiled roofs, every building of stone. I have
seen only one modern buildjng yet
i was sorry to leave Antwerp so soon but
it had to be done and Wednesday at ten a.
m. we left for the Hague, arrived there at
twelve o'clock and went to the old hotel
Veiux Dolen, built In sixteen something.
Right here I must be disloyal enough to say
that in certain respects I like railway travel
ing here better than in America. It might
be disagreeable In winter in a crowded
apartment, but we had only on young
Dutchman part of the way and it was very
comfortable. On the border we had to get
out wun baggage and go through the custom
house farce, which consists of glancing at
uaggage, marking it with white chalk. .It
also consists of using all your spare change,
feeing men to carry baggage, open doors,
etc., have to pay a man to look at you here.
Oh, what a lovely, delightful country is
this Holland. Beautiful green farms, quaint
windmills, canals bordered by green trees
that look like Noah's Ark trees, peasant
women in their picturesque costumes, all
making a charming scene.
Friday, 7 p. m. One more attempt be
fore going down to the shops as they call all
stores here. The Hague Is a most delight
ful place enjoyed it every minute I was
We had a delightful drive to the "House
In the Woods" and went through that elegant
palace, saw tho private apartments of the
late Queen Sophia, room and bed in which
she died, etc. The audience chamber is
magnificent, lined with paintings by Jor
diens. The woods commence abont three
blocks from tho hotel and are most beauti
fully preserved by the royal family. Driving
tho green areas, now and then catching
glimpses of artificial lakes, bordered by
copper beeches. We returned after a drive
through the principal streets, then we walk
ed a short distance from tlie hotel to the
shops. They are small and dark, with little
doors on one side instead of in front, that is,
in the middle of the front as with us. In
every shop we find somebody who can speak
a few words of English. This Dutch lan
guage is something awful. I feel as Mrs.
W. expressed herself this p. m. "1 wouldn't
speak their outlandish Dutch if I could.
Why don't they talk plain United States?"
Well we returnod to Table de Note dinner
at six o'clock and at seven got on top of a
tram bound for Shevennigen, three miles
from here on tho sea coast and I never en
Joyed a drive so much in all my life. 1 never
expect to see anything more beautiful.
Through aisles of trees (about eight rows of
trees) then above tho sandy paths, passing
along which were fishermen and the quaint
peasants. Then through the trees you could
see beautiful villas with their well kept
grounds. In this village we saw more of
the old stylo Dutch dress than in the cities.
Nearly all the women wore sabots, caps and
brass ornaments. We were very lucky, for
that night the Berlin Philharmonic orchestra
gave a concert on the beach. We . paid a
guilder each and sat on the elevation above
the beach, watching the waves clash upon
the white sands, the queer beach chairs,
etc,, and listened to the exquisite music
heard two Wagner selections, Mendclshon,
Strauss, etc. Got back to hotel home about
June 18. Right after breakfast visited
private picture gallery of Baron Steengracht
also the gallery of the Hague and the
museum of antiquities, putting In a full
morning. At the nague gallery saw Paul
Potter's famous "Bull" picture, Rembranfs
School of Anatomy," Murlllo's 'Madon
na" and many others. Well, we left for
Amsterdam at 1:30 p. m., arriving there
about 2:30 and came to this grand hotel on
the canal, rested till 4:30, then took a drive
through the park, principal streets, Jewish
quarters, getting a good idea of the city. U
In beautiful but not as much so as the
Hague. It seems more modernized, wider
streets, etc much larger than the Hague.
At eleven this a. m. we visited the natural
museum or Ruyks and did not return till
4:30. 1 can give you no idea at all of Us
