V., July 25.—I suppose that, next to politics, the chief subject 6£.conversation here when one wishes to be serious and improving is introduced by the inevitable-question: "Have you-'rend Howells 1 Saratoga story yet?" ' ' . I think the question characteristic of tlic Saratoga frame of mirul. Any number of Howellscs might write any number of stories. about Newport, nnd no genuine NowporUsr would bother her head with wondering- whether any other person had read them or not-. I'm afraid the Xcwpoi-t point of view is less local, less patriotic, less American. I can iinnginc a tolerably well-informed >"ew- portor' looking up from her French novel or from some dull British tome and inquiring-: "Who'sHowells? Some American writer, .isn't he?" There are other points of difference, on the surface and underneath the surface. Saratoga is frankly American, and I like it because it is. Upon the endless miles of its hotel piax.ws, sto.id middle aged matrons sit and knit or do fancy work rund talk, precisely as they would at home. Up n.nd clown its shaded sidewalks, in the pleasant dusk, .pretty girls wander hand in hand; bareheaded, as likely as not, just n.s they have, run out from the hotel a tier supper, precisely as they would at. home. The chief actoi-s in. Mr. Howells' talc made few friendships here, but Mint must have been because they were."stuck up" or "stand offish'," or some drcatl fill thing &C the sort. Besides, I am sure that they are going to do better by and by. Frankly, the girls are prettier in Saratoga. I fancy this is because they come from many smaller towns, or if from the cities, belong in circle.s not too strenuously "select." They do not have to pursue the bugaboos of propriety so closely. They are not put through such an exhausting course of life. They need . ct.. p«r»nnum. . ThefntitortftronioBrnqgiy.' .- .1 . j The coupons ar« payabl" ; >0( "U!B n . n S 1 ' J%.

All the more room for the pretty girl who isn't, flashy, clad in her simple. \vhito gown, or (lit: yonnpr matron in her (vleamiTjff silks. The prettiest bull gown T have scon as vet wns.suilicicntly magnilicent for a duchess. It was corn-colored yellow satin, with a skirt almost entrain and little flt'to dance in. It was richly embroidered with pcn'rls: then-were wide lapels of yellow satin over an antique corsage, i\'ncl from the- square decollet- ag« depended a fall of gold lace, knotted-with, fresh roses. It madi' you think of "barbaric pearls, and gold." So did the great gold j-irdle worn by a slender woman Over a' princess gown of pale yellow—a. girdle which was really two girdles, one running fairly straight about, the waist, the other drooping in front, in Theodora fashion nnd bearing :v huge pendiile of gold. The whole affair had -n splendidly henry look. There ore many clever women whips seen in Saratoga", clad usually in garments rather Parisian than 'British, after the Newport, fashion; anil this fact makes the carriage parade finer as a pageant thnn anything seen in the city by the sea av.d gayer even than the severely correct costuming of the autumn coaching parades in Xe\v 1'ork. A. strong favorite among the ravriage women is the carriage en pis and its chosen color is apt to be fnwn or a warm gray with a tinge of red in it. There is almost no horseback riding in Saratoga. There is less bicycling thnn one would expect, to s<v, with such pleasant environs and perfect, roads. A pretty recent addition to a bicycle outfit is a tiny leather toilet bag. strapping on the handle-bars and containing comb, brush, powder box and puff and i tiny mirror.

There are pretty dresses, and constant cli.ing-e and variety often, popping daily out of those vast trunks to which Saratoga hns given its name.

"My partner, 'Ben Williams, and i had been working, our way along the range from a point near Biff Bald mountain to the loop where the Bitter Koot range and the Cocur d'Alcnes- from abig.nftturnl'amphitheater, where big game, especially elk, are plentiful. We decided to stay there until we had tiane to follow up the lead, as old miners say.

This, of course, only when the baby and the mothei are both healthy. Not much pleat- ure can be gotten out of .bathing a peevish, sickly, fretful baby. If the mother -isn't healthy, she cannot get much pleasure out of anything. Healthy mothers, who are careful, - always cave healthy babies. Weak women sometimes have healthy babies, but the chances are against it. Every woman can- have healthy, happy children if she will take proper care of herself.
