It Is the cosmopolitan resort, free to everybody. Conventions of all kinds meet here. The editors and road reformers were present at the same time and the teachers followed them. It is a great gathering place for the Methodists. In 1871 Senator James A. Bradley, a New York brush merchant, bought it and arranged that no liquor should ever be sold on the premises. The prohibition does not absolutely prohibit, but the gambling houses and drinking resorts of other watering places are absent. It has 3,000 bath houses and two miles fronl of 30-foot sidewalk along the ocean beach. Senator Bradley also arranged for a regulation bathing suit, but no one seems overburdened with clothing in the water. In early July an overcoat would not make a bad bath tng accompaniment in the Atlantic. The ocean rolls in modestly but effectively. The inexperienced bather wakes up the next morning after breasting the incoming tide with that "tired feeling," and crawls out of bed wondering who pounded him. The salt water at Asbury Park does not taste any bet- ;er than elsewhere, but the bathers ;ake it in as though they enjoyed it. There is deep sea fishing also. Charlie Monger went out and tried it. The boat he was in rocked more than he liked and the rest of the party listened to his graphic description of how he baited the fish and stayed on the land. Asbury Park has a local population of 5,000 peo- )le, a summer population of 100,000, and 100 trains stop there each day. The editors were at the Park eight days. Four were spent in discussing. The veteran newspaper reporter of New York, Joe Howard, addressed them one evening, and ex-Postmaster General Tames talked on postal history and 1-3- orm one afternoon. The meetings were held in a large pavilion which stands where the ocean breezes sweep through ts numerous windows and temper de)ate. Here an elaborate banquet was spread with 500 plates one evening, and lere also a musical entertainment was given, parlcipated in by the best talent of the neighboring cities. It is jaid that the Park people raised 510,000 to entertain the association and t is a small estimate of the expense. The trip to Mon mouth battle field to lelebrate the Fourth and the closing carriage excursion for a clam bake added enjoyable memories of an enjoy- ,ble week at Asbury Park, Monmouth battle field is about 24 miles from the coast. The temperature rises a little at each mile. Here s where Washington swore roundly ivhen he fpund Lee retreating instead of advancing, as he was ordered. Here ilso Mollie Pitcher grasped the cannon wab from the hands of her dead husband and went through the battle with he battery. Here also Mad Anthony Wayne made the final charge through a trampled corn field. A magnificent monument marks the field and near ts base the editors and citizens joined o commemorate the valor of their orefathers. President Williams of lolumbia, Mo,, made a brief speech and Lafe Young of Des Moines the principal address, Three miles from he monument is old Tennant church. The date of the building is not known, mt Whitfield and a host of the early reaohers have occupied its odd old lulpit, and its association with the amous battle which was fought about t makes it an object of interest. #** The Rhode Island clam bake was given undor the trees at old Port au Peck hotel on Pleasure Bay, The bouse is 50 years old, shingled from the ground up with old fashioned shakes. The ound trip in carriages covered 30 miles from the park and return, It' was first through Elberon, which ies three miles up. the coast from Asbury. Here Js where both Grant and Garfleld were taken in their last llness. Elberon is an attractive name or an attractive place. It is a street two of beautiful private homos along the ocean, Nothing is public and nothing is cheap, A mile beyond s Long Branch, once the famous spot, STow, because the ocean a few yea,rs ago in an angry mood out away the andsome bench, Ljojig Branch 0«t considerable pf ^ /g^jy, ~" " hotels ftre. f«H, j^ fee pj,rty fey tfes , " " W\ are miles of country roads lined with the magnificent grounds and homes of the pleasure seekers of the cities. That pleasure may be sitting at home oh the rod? Samantha Allen suggests, and so does the grand estate of the late John Hoey, who robbed the Adams express ol millions and died of the disgrace, He had 160 mea employed continually in the season caring for this Long Branch home with Us gardens. #** Plalnfield, N. J., is whore Dolliver locates his story about the New York roosters,,.the men who do all their business in New York and " roost" in Plttlnfleld, It was visited on the way to New York because-the Scott printing press works are there, and because Mr. Scott Wanted the editors to see what ho is doing and because the editors were equally anxious. The Scott perfecting press is now com' poting successfully with the Hoo, which means that it is the best made. A lunoh was first served by Mr. Scott, his big presses were soon in operation, and then carriages took the entire party to see the homes of the New Yorkers who live out of the noise and bustle of the city and go in to their business on club trains, on which no one can ride but members, and which make no stops. Plainfield has 15,000 people, lies in a beautiful valley directly In front of the famous rook in the Orange mountains where Washington came to inspect the British army below.'( In a special issue the Plalnfield Times welcomed the editors in verse: Behold the rulers of the nations! They toll not, neither Do they spin, Yet Solomon In all his glory Was not a raid Like this one IB I They.are the Ajaxes, come down here, To defy the Jersey lightning, Aud they deserve the best We' ve got in the shop!

John H. Starin tendered the excursion which ended at Glen islands, 12 little rocky and romantic n-eaks in Long Island sound connected by rustic bridges, and occupied by Davilions, an extensive menagerie, >athing places, and boating stations. It is the popular resort for New York picnickers, The return along the entire water front of the metropolis, and the first entry into it, brought the party to the Mutual Reserve insurance building, the highest on Man- lattan Island, where President Harper had prepared a banquet. About 300 «rere present and Editor Sohleicher of the New York Mail and Express estimated the , cost to Mr. Harper at over $5,000,« The tables were elaborately decorated with flowers, and at the close of' the speaking beautiful souvenirs were distributed. The menu was as follows: Potage. Consomme de Volatile, Hors d'ceuvres. Olives, Radishes, Pickles, Salted Almonds. Polsson. Saumon, Sauce Tartare, Releve. Filet of Beef, a la Jardiniere, Legumes.
