PRICE THREE CENTS.
.NOT A KICKER.
The road was rugged, and the way seemed dark ;
As sick and alone I came,
To make a home In an unknown place,
'Mid mist and falling rain.
No welcome I met, as the electric car,
Stopped at a wayside house;
Weary and sad and hungry too,
I dropped as weak as a mouse.
Weeks have flown with wondrous haste,
A stranger no longer I roam;
1 n I he glow of health, the way grows light,
New friends have made it home.
With (lowers and birds, the heart rebounds,
In this land of IMnelnirst charm,
For the very air which fans the cheek,
Seems to promise future balm.
Can the grateful heart, now free from pain,
Refrain from singing praise?
For here the way-worn traveler,
Found health and length of days.
So say I to all suffering ones,
Come like the birds, in trust,
Here's rest and love and sweetest air;
Recover here you must.
I'inehurst, March 23d, 1900.

again broken yesterday, when Mrs.

remarkable as Mrs. Sise has only been

undoubtedly in the race for the season's
cup. The next best score was also made
by her a few days since, when she did
the 18 holes in 95. Her best score was

In spite of the threatening weather
last Sunday night the usual large audi
ence assembled in the music room at the
Holly Inn to enjoy the excellent concert
by the Holly Inn orchestra. A fine pro
gram had been provided and was carried
out in a manner that was appreciated by
all who had the good fortune to be pres
ent. The pianoforte solo by Mrs. May
Cook Sharp was played with exquisite
expression and in response to an encore
she gave some variations on "Home
Sweet Home"' for the left hand only,
which called forth hearty applause for
her wonderful left-hand technic. Mr.
Barker's cornet solo was finely rendered
and was received with generous applause.

Last Tuesday evening the parlors at
the Cedars were the scene of a most
enjoyable entertainment, the occasion
being an evening at German whist. Mrs.
S. 1$. Perry was the hostess and her
guests included all who are stopping at
the Cedars and its annex cottages. The
party was necessarily limited to the
guests at these places as the parlors are
too small to accommodate more. As it
was, the six tables were filled and game
went on to a finish when the following
winners were declared : first ladies' prize,
a spool case, Miss Thomas; ladies' con
solation prize, a handkerchief case, Mrs.
McKown ; first gentlemen's prize, a glove
box, Mr. F. II. McAlpine; gentlemen's
consolation prize, the book "Cranford,"
Mrs. M. V. Smith.
At the conclusion of the playing
refreshments, consisting of lemonade,
cheese straws, wafers and chocolate
fudge, were served. The guests departed
at a late hour with many expressions of
appreciation to their genial hostess for a
most delightful evening's entertainment.
Among the guests outside the Cedars
were Mr. and .Mrs. F. II. McAlpine.
