The liuni contains 155 ucics, more or Ks, divided between wood land and tilliable li.nd. However il is not its number oi acres that makes this larm, in the opinion of experts, the must valuable paicle ol proH-rty ou this beautiful lake, but the ideal location it Us ncies The Kilsey place ha a broad frontage on tin lake, mid it ironts the lake at its a-iilert point. Its tine snniiv beach, exteuumg out into the lake several hundred leet, hits no rival in this vicinity as n hnthing resort. Th house, facing the west, is located 10J nls Irom the lake the land sloping beauti fully to the waters edge. To the north old Moosalamoo risrs a thousand leet. almost in a perpendicular line and to the east, live minutes walk, are the beautilul a sea drs. For a diversity of beautilul scenery tbe Kelsry place is without a peer in this vicinity and for the past 50 yeais has been a popular resort lor pleasure seekers and sportsmen. What Mr. Breare's intentions are in regard to this Iplace we have not beard, but his disposition is to improve everything. and the Kelsry place will not suffer nn der his management. CARVER W.
