Alimisr. six hundred thousand people including the lii.ght Hon. W. K.

The average America;! who has seen the wonderful system of docks, extending for miles and built of sroue, is prepared to fwm an agreeable impression of the city. But when lie land.* or, the sidewalk outside tlie custom house ' at with the din and hustle of tha.t institution in his head ami the last twmiaiit of temper cm nil seated as dutiable matter by the otlicoiw, he Is in no mood for t.he Innovations that greet him on every hand and is willing to avail himself of t-lic 'Ili-st train- out. The oue which we took was bound for the north aud^iu- good humor was restored by the unexpected courtesy -which marked the railway official'!. Fancy a railway conductor in America troubling himself to open your carriage door and to see (.hat your luggage—"baggage" this sid' 1 of thr- nr>nd, yon know—was safely put on the train, asking for your tickets wifih an "it! you please," punching them in a reveronitiisU mfMiiior and returning tliom wiltih a. bo-w a:iul a "tlwnk you sir/' The changes which have to be made to get anywhere on tiie railroads scorn ridiculously disproportionate to the number of miles between starting point and destination, but they arc nearly all by immediate connection. After bundling in and out. of two or three trains •wo readied Lake Windemcre, the first and favorite of the English lakes. A little steamer plies from Lakeside at one end to Ambleside at the other, pas.i ing wooded banks which half hide, half frame the stone summer residences of tlie beauty-loving Bri'ton. We do not think the scrawny which was spread before us on the way to Amblcside and on the coach ride from there to Kesw.ick surpassed by any that we have viewed. It is tlie region that has established'the Lake school of poetry. Almost every spot has been immortalized by the poets Wordsworth, Soulhey, Coleridge and Mrs. Hemarii-: and the natural bcanfy Is wonth.v -o-f their pens. Dr. Arnold, "ilia ideal school master" had his home, ''Fox Howe," here, and his last letter, written just before his death and on the ere of commencement at Rugby, is full of allusions to his beautiful home rind his desire to reach it for t.h.c summer, • . Sunday was spent Jin Kuswick and a short run in tho evening brought us fr> Carlisle. ''Its English, you know" to have women hotel clerks and they bear the dignity of their office with an iin- perturbablJIi'f.y tlcit ratr owji Bonifaces- might court. But the one at this'place was startled Into raising her eyebrows on learning that we purposed to.leave the city next morning without seeing more of Carlisle than t.he cathedral and such of it an was displayed in an'cven- Ing walk and to go to Glasgow, doing Ayre c.n route. Ayre.is tlie center oC the ''I;i,tid of Burns." Ilero yoni are. drl-vcm jus-t as thirty thousand otflver pilgrims are an- ntially. two miles into the country to see fche birthplace of "Bobbie" and the bridge made fawoiw by Tarn O'Shan- ter's ride. The old man who shows you the .little swiveij-njil where Bnriw's mother ami father lie. will croon ynrd after yard of poetry—Invariably bringing In "Tarn O'Shanter"— for your sis-' ponice. Tin fact everybody over here seems to thiivk that Amorlen.'ns arc consumed with a gnawing passion to hear poetry. Poetry permeates everything. The driver who points out'a place with a ware <xf h-fc wlniip s»es rattling off.a trite quotation- or, failing to find one at Uis .foivgue's cud. Improvises—wllb proper poetic llcea'se.
