room is provided with an electric call
The hotel contains all modern comforts
and conveniences. The entire building

steam, and many of the rooms contain
open fireplaces. The cuisine is unsur

all white girls from the north. Bath
rooms are also provided.
For the security of both invalids and
pleasure seekers cases of pronounced
consumption will under no circumstances
be allowed admission.
Since last season all the carpets in the
house have been taken up and cleansed,
and the hotel has been thoroughly reno
vated and put in first class condition.
Among the prominent attractions at
the Inn this season is the fine orchestra
under Mr. Trev. Sharp, a talented musi
cal director who has made an enviable
reputation among the music loving pub
lic. Orchestral concerts will be given
morning and evening and music will also
be provided for dancing.
Mr. Allen Treadway, who has charge
of the Inn this year, was one of the
managers of the house last season, and
is very popular with the guests. - lie is a
well-known hotel man, having been the
manager of the famous Bed Lion Inn, in
the Berkshire Hills in Massachusetts, for
many years. Under his eflicient man
agement the Inn will undoubtedly be
come more popular than ever. The
house is rapidly filling up and a
large portion of the rooms are already
engiiged, and the present season bids
fair to be the most successful in the his
torv of the Inn.
Finehurst Wolf Links.
It is but natural that the Golf Links
are already attracting the attention of
our visitors. Every morning and after
noon players gather on the grounds, and
the attractive and convenient Club House
is now in use. A brief description of
the links may not be out of place at this
time. Those who played on the course
last year will find the same nine holes
then used to have been materially im
proved during the summer. At the
close of the season practically the only
criticism made of the course was the
size of the greens. These are now all
sixty feet square, very smooth and hard,
and perfectly level.
The fair greens are in excellent con
dition, as the result of the careful atten
tion given them last year and the past
summer. A fine crop of grass has grown,
making a strong turf over almost the en
tire course. Grass is now coming up
where the fair greens were widened last
year and this will soon be as hard as the
No change has been made in hole No.
1, except the widening of the putting
greens, and as this has been done
throughout the course it need not be
mentioned in the further description of
the different holes. The drive is from
the tee near the entrance gate up a slight
incline. The hole is well protected by a
high bunker. On hole No. 2 a new
bunker has been built in order to catch
low drives which otherwise gain an un
fair advantage by rolling down the hill
Hole No. 3 remains the same as last year
On No. 4 a new bunker has been built
for the same purpose as on No. 2.
The new nine holes start at this point,
unuiiiir beside the Nursery grounds, so
that what was formerly hole No. 5 is
now No. 14. Old No. 6 also has a new
bunker. No. 7 has not been changed,
but the bunker on No. 8 has been moved
forward some distance. No. 9 remains
the same. The bogey for the course is
Holes, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
Strokes, 3, 5, 4, 5, 6, 3, 5, 4, 4-39
As mentioned above the new nine holes
start near the fourth green and will af
ford the golfer rather more variety and
sporty lies than the old course. A great
amount of work has been done clearing
the ground and getting the fair greens
in condition, a force of men having been
employed throughout the summer. The
ground is quite hilly in several of the
holes, and this adds variety. There are
two as sporty drives as any golfer could
ask for, the eight being across a pond
and the tenth across wide ravine. Every
hole has some interesting feature pecu
liar to itself. Aside from a small amount
of work on the greens and tees the en
tire course is in remarkably good condi
tion. The names of the holes and their
lengths follow :
1 Short One, 116 yards.
2 Deer Park, 310 yards.
3 liidge, 213 yards.
4 Barn, 386 yards.
5 Nursery, 437 yards.
6 Punch-bowl, 213 yards.
7 Windmill, 355 yards.
8 Dam, 311 yards.
9 Ghost Walk, 153 yards.
10 Buchans Branch, 317 yards.
11 Westward Ho, 258 yards.
12 Wilderness, 484 yards.
13 Crossroads, 257 yards.
14 Long One, 496 yards.
15 Easy One, 152 yards.
16. Over the Hill, 296 yards.
17 Club House, 168 years.
18 Home, 254 yards.
Well may Finehurst boast of having
the best 18-hole course in the South. It
is safe to say that Finehurst will become,
if that distinction has not already been
gained, the winter Mecca of golfers, for
such a course as we now have here is
bound to add in a very large measure to
the popularity of this delightful winter

Miss Breiieman's Entertainment.
Last evening Miss Breneman gave an
entertainment of musical recitations,
song pantomimes, monologues and
dialect poems in the Village Hall, which
was one of the best entertainments ever
given here. In the "Chariot Scene from
Ben Hur" she exhibited dramatic qual
ities of high order and showed what a
wonderful amount of talent she pos
sesses. She danced a very graceful
minuet and in her humorous parts she is
also very pleasing. Mr. A. N. Messer
sang "Ben Bolt" while Miss Breneman
went through the pantomime parts in an
interesting and highlv entertaining
manner. She possesses a magnetic
temperament, vivid powers of description
and very nice unassuming manner of ex
pression, and her selections are well
worth listening to.
Mr. Messer also sang "Peggy of
bkibbereen," and a solo by Mr. St. Clair
was well received.
The new housemaid who had an
swered the ring of the postman glanced
at the wrapper of the magazine, on which
was inscribed: JAMES SMITH MCHOO,
and returned it to the man in the gray
uniform with the remark :
"That isn't for us. The name of the
people who live here is Smith."
"That's all right," he said handing it
"Well, but it isn't all right. Don't
you suppose I know the name of this
family? This is for somebody named
McIIoo. Can't you read?"
"Yes. That's how I got my job.
You can read well enough to see that the
first part of that name is James Smith,
"Well, the MCHOO means March,
1900, the time it's paid up to. Guess
you'd better take it. You re a nice look
ing girl, but your education is not quite
complete. Good morning. See you
again to-morrow." Chicago Tribune.

The teacher discovered that a very
small boy, not more than five years old,
was chewing gum, and she ordered him
out and bade him disgorge it.
"I can't," he said.
"You can't?" she answered, in sur
prise; "why, yes you can, and you
"No, I can't," he persisted, and kept
the gum in his mouth.
"Now why can't you give me that gum,

"Because," said Johnnie, stoutly, "it
belongs to a little girl in Soinerville!"

Pinehurst Spring Water.
The following is the result of the
analysis of the Pinehurst Spring Water:
Raleigh, N. C, April 5, 1897.
Analysis No. 10,111.
Dear Sir: The sample of health water sent to
the station for analysis in a demijohn, marked
"From tube well system, Pinehurst, N. C," con
Total solid matter in solution
Grains per U. S. Gallon, . 0.92
Hardness, . . 1.00 degree of Clark's scale
Carbonate of lime, 0.00 grains per U. S. gallon
Chlorine, . . 0.08 grains per U. S. gallon
Ammonia, Free, .' .032 parts per million.
Ammonia, Albmuinoid .050 " " "
Analysis of the water from Pinehurst, shows it
to be a drinking water of exceptional quality.
The total solid matter and chlorine is very small ;
and the ammonia, both free and albuminoid, is
quite considerably less than is usually found in
drinking waters. These facts show it to be a
very valuable source for a water supply; In fact,
so far as the chemical examination is concerned,
we seldom find such purity.
