Pedestrians carried umbrellas, stout wople puffed and perspired profusely, ean people looked thinner than usual, wid occasionally would produce a ban- lanna and wipe those little drops of lew which formed upon their fpre- leads and necks, away with a tired ook. The bicycler looked like a piece of sun-dried bacon, all of his flesh bav- ng been dispensed with except what muscles he needed to run his wheel with. Even asphalt pavements seemed to warm under the heat of old Sol. It was on such a day as this that I and two or three friends made a trip to Wildwood in search of comfort, not consolation, like the famous Dr. Sintax. Wildwood is a part of White Bear alee and is one of the most beautiful summer resorts near the Twin Cities, with the exception, perhaps, of Lake Minnetonka, which is larger. The ride to Wildwood is delightful. The track is up hill and down around urves, over trestles, through beautiful timbered tracts, by the side of fertile fields, little inland lakes, and green aills and valleys. The cars will seat about twenty people comfortably and fare is collected three tiroes each way both going and coming. I suppose the object of this is to give the conductor something to do, or so be will know when anyone falls from the car. There must be economy in it somewhere, bul no one seems to be able to explain where it is. After a pleasant trip notwithstanding the heat, we arrive at the lake. The first thing we see is a large pavilion where refreshments are served. In the evening music and dancing is en joyed by those who are thus inclined roller coasting and skating, water tobogganing, bathing, rowing, or boat riding. Then there are swings of al sorts and contrivances for pleasure an< benefit. A pleasure steamer lies a the dock waiting to carry one across the lake to White Bear; little yachts flit across the waves, row boats dot the lake in every direction. At 8 o'clock music begins with the now famous waltz song of "Dorris," and as if al most by magic the pavilion is throngec with men and women, youths anc maidens, and one is reminded of New port or Coney Island, that is I was so reminded, having never seen eithe place, There is a certain sense o pleasure and restfulness associatec with any lake or summer resort of tbii kind, and on a hot evening in a crowd ed city a cool lake-breeze is refreshing It is worth your time and money to spend an evening at Wildwood, E.
