The summer resorts on the Motion Route are more than usually popular this year. West Baden and French Lick Springs, in Orange County, are overflowing with visitors, and the hotels have all they can ilo. Paoli, the county seat, has opened a fine sanitarium, which is well patronized. The water? of the various springs differ materially in their constituents, and are successfully prescribed for a great variety of maladies. The woods in the neighborhood abound in panic and all the streams teem with fish, some of them having been stocked by the government lish commission. All indications point to West Eadcn (and the neighboring springs) as the great sanitarium and popular summer resort of i thc west.

All along the road Cora Tanner, at one time thc wife of Col, Sinn, tho well- known manager, was for some seasons best known as the sad heroine of Robert Buchanan's melodrama, "Alone in London," in which, from 18S4 to 1SSS, she played Annie Meadows. Later we remember her as even handsomer—although inclined to be heavy—as the heroine of Buchanan's "Fascination," in which she created a sensation by masquerading in a masculine evening outfit, the out o£ which excited the admiration of gay New York. After she separated from Col. Sinn she went to London and it was reported that she was to make her debut in opera. This never came to pass. Miss Tanner's very first, appearance on thc stage, by thc way, was as a singer in. John Stetson's production of "Princess Ida," in which shc sang the title role.
