AT WHITE SULPHUR.
Tho Greenbrier (W. Va.) Springs—
Gossip of the Piazza and Hall.
Cron tin 1 Boston Herald.
Greenbrier White Sulphur Springs,
W. Va., Sept 2.—This place is so thoroughly
distinctive that there is no lietter way of de
scribing it than to call it “sui generis. It
will always be pronouncedly Southern in
its prevailing styles and practices, all.hongh
since Charles Dudley Warner showed itsnch
partiality in “Our Pilgrimage” it lias had
better patronage from the East and West.
Tiie newcomers, however, are, apparently,
content to adapt themselves to those tradi
tions and customs which are os old and unal
terable as the jilace itself.
In days gone by more than now the White
Sulphur was a favorite rendezvous for
Southern politicians, and the details of many
a campaign, both State and National, have
been discussed and arranged in the cosy lit
tle cottages that dot the various hillsides,
and are designated respectively as Virginia.
North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia
and Alabama row. The hotel proper is lo
cated in the centre of a perfect basin, the
mountains towering on every side. The
situation is absolutely faultless. The ex
pansive grounds roll with billowy grace up
to the very base of the hills, and the carpet
of spring makes a sward of emerald green.
Great trees stand in groups about the lawn,
and grow so near one another that their
limbs litterally interlock and makea wealth
of shade even at midday. The enter
tainment at the White Sulphur is as
varied as can be found at any summer re
sort in America. A man has opportunity
to do anything which his taste may dictate.
He can shut himself up with books in one of
those small cottages and be guaranteed
against interruption from one week’s end to
another. He can devote himself to natural
scenery and find all to delight his soul ex
cept the boundless sea, and when he stands
upon the misty mountain top, he can get
even a semblance of the ocean’s blue on the
indistinct border of the seemingly faultless
landscape that stretches beyond his view. If
on social pleasure bent, he can find com
pany of any character and diversion of
every kind. He can find men ready and
able to talk with him on politics, science or
religion. Ho can pass his time at anv sort
of game, from lawn tennis to faro bank.
And when we come to consider the White
Sulphur as a
VANTAGE GROUND FOR WOMEN,
it is simply incomparable. There is less
contentious rivalry, less mean jealousy, less
unscrupulous gossip, and less disparaging
comment among the women here than at
any similar place I ever saw. All these at
tractions for both sexes are attested by the
great crowds that come here every year,
and the attendance, from time immemorial,
has been of the very best class of jieople.
There is more beauty, chivalry, refinement
and culture congregated at this place overy
summer than can lie found elsewhere from
Maine to California.
There is an easy and comfortable accom
modation for only about 1,200 people, but
there is rarely a year when there are not at
least 1,000 here from Aug. 10 to Aug. 20,
which is the height of the season. The
height of the season, it will lie observed, is
short, and this is the only possible way of
accounting for a strauge fact in the history
of the place, viz., that it never pays. It has
lost its owner’s money every year since the
war, and on this account has frequently
changed hands. In fact, its sale at auction
lias come to to regurded as a sort of neces
sary incident, which occurs almost with tho
regularity and periodicity of each soason.
It is now advertised to to sold at public out
cry next month, and the general prediction
is that it will not bring even its bonded
debt. Nevertheless, nobody doubts but that
the new purchaser will run it again next
year, and thus on the spirit of experiment
do the hubituos depend for the perjietuation
of their fond resort.
The regulations of society tore are
entirely free from the characteristics of
shoddy aristocracy. Everythimg is con
ducted on the assumption that only well
bred fieople are attracted to the White Sul
phur. This inspires a cordiality and affa
bility of intercourse truly delightful. If
ever a man or woman depart from strictest
propriety, the offender is quickly and uni
versally discountenanced. Thus" ore men
held up to the highest standard of true
gentlemen, and the realm of womanhood is
protected against unworthy intrusion.
This season has been a particularly gay
qne. The great crowd came a little earlier
and is lingering later than usual. The com
pany is made up of all ages, and one of the
most beautiful sights of jfioasuro and merri
ment is that which the ballroom presents
every evening between 8 and 9 o’clock,
when the children dance, and the parents
and grandparents look on with pride.
There is one “F. F. V.” here embracing
four generations, and the noble old grand
sire, in the majesty of his person, and the
sacredness of his age. sits like a king in the
midst of his household, wearing the snow
fall of more than four score years for his
Something of an innovation has been in
troduced this year with reference to the
stylo of various entertainments. There is a
p aging fashion for all things private. There
are private gennans,
PRIVATE LAWN PARTIES,
private breakfasts, dinners aud suppers.
These are all supremely swell, and make
the special features of compliment this sea
son. On all hands it is conceded that thus
far the three most beautiful and recherche
of these entertainments were a german
given last week by F. W. Hunter, of Phila
delphia, to Miss Ella Gordon, of Cincinnati:
a supper given by 11. R. Harjier (one of the
jutkor members of the publishing house) in
compliment to Mis. Josejih Thoirmaon, of
Atlanta, Ga., and a breakfast given by
Alfred £>ully last, Friday morning, compli
mentary to Mrs. John Iv. Connelly of Ashe
ville, N. C., Mrs. John L. Morehead of Char
lotte, N. C., Mrs. Thomas B. Branch of Au
gusta, Ga., Mrs. William Graves of New
York and Miss Josephine Lyons of Rich
mond, Va. There were twelve couples in
vited to the breakfast, especially distin
guished Among whom were Hon. J. L. M.
Curry (United States Minister to S|aiii) and
wife, aud Hon. Emory Sjssir (United States
Circuit Court Judge of Georgia) and wife.
There are many very beautiful women
here, and a goodly number of gallant men.
There is a “Diver’s leap” on the mountain
top, and a shady path that leads thereto.
The moonlight silvers the liills by night, and
the thrush sings low in the woods. The
echo of uius!/' never dies, and the spirit of
potty fills Uie air. If all thetie circum
stances do not lead sweethearts into be
trothals and fiunces to marriage, Cupid
might as well unstring his bow aud fiing
away his arrows.

LONDON DRAMATIC TALK.
DEATH OF A VETERAN ENGLISH
Revival of "Our Boys” at the Criterion
New Plays—Critics Now Admit that
Mrs. Potter Has Talent.
Crum the Boston Herald.
London, Aug. 24.—How many of the
thousands who have laughed over “A Scrap
of Bajier” know that the man who trans
formed Sardou’s essentially French comedy
of intrigue, “I*es Patios do Mouche,” into a
brilliant English version was named Pal
grave Simpson* The author of this ex
cellent adaptation, and of various other less
fortunate plays, has long been a conspicu
ous figure in the artistic circles of London
society, and he has just died at the rijie age
of MO years, peacefully succumbing to nn
illnoss against which he fought heroically;
for, despite his great ago, he had no wish to
quit this vale of tears, and he would prob
ably have passed away some years ago had
he not resolutely determined to live on.
Though four score, I'algrave Simpson did
not look much more than 00, and his
swarthy complexion and dark eyes were
matched to the last by jet-black hair and
moustache; so that to altogether continued
to realize the happy description once given
of him as an “amiable brigand.” London
is a great, a thoughtless and a forgetful city,
and, moreover, at this season of the year
many of the lights of the theatrical
and literary world are either making
holiday or are on tour in the prov
inces, and these facts may account for the
scanty attendance at tiie grave of Mr.
Simpson, in the Catholic cemetery of St.
Thomas, Walhum Green, one of the outlying
districts of the modern Babylon. The chief
mourners included John Clayton, the actor
and manager; and there was a small group
of dramatists, notably Pinero aud Robert
Reece. Among the wreaths sent was one
from Mr. Henry Irving, who is at present
jilaying in Edinburgh. But, considering tiie
name and wide acquaintance of Paigrave
Simpson, considering, too, his
AMIABILITY AND UNIFORM KINDNESS
to those entering upon the career of litera
ture and tho drama, the attendance at the
funeral seemed but a meagre tribute of re
The theatres are beginning to put their
liest autumnal foot forward. New plays
are soon to be the order of tho night, and,
moreover, a few of tho best old ones are
now before the public, such as “Our Boys,”
which enjoyed, on its original production at
the Vaudeville Theatre, the phenomenal run
of three years! The feature of the original
cast was the quaintly humorous and pa
thetic “butterman” of Mr. David Janies,
whose performance, totter, if possible, than
ever, is set oil' by an entirely new cast at
the Criterion Theatre. Mr. Charles Wynd
liani is taking his holiday. He could have
left no more successful substitute as a
“star” than Mr. David James, whose acting
commands not only the laughter but the
tears of the public. Among those who ap
plauded him heartily the other evening was
Sir Arthur Sullivan. The Talbot Champ
neys is now Mr. George Guldens; the
Charles Middlewick, Mr. Sidney Brough, a
promising jeune premier, tho son of a popu
lar London comedian, Mr. Lionel Brough.
New plays are now in preparation at
Drury Lane, the Olympic, the Opera
Comique and the Comedy theatres. “The
Pointsman,” announced at the Olympic, is
from the pen of the authors of “The Great
Pink Pearl.” “The Barrister” is the title of
the comedy production. “A Secret Foe,”
by John A. Stevens, is underlined at tho
Opera Comique, and the attractive name of
“Pleasure” has been given to the autumn
play at Drury Lane.
Mrs. James Brown-Potter has reached
that stage in her career when even severe
critics admit that she possesses talent. She
is, of course, ad vised to “begin at the hot
tom of the ladder;” to play small parts —in
the provinces, if possible. In short, the
usual suggestions that have tieen made to
every woman of position, from Mary Ander
sen to Mrs. Langtry, are made to her. The
ambitious American will, of course, do
nothing of the sort; and there is no earthly
reason why she should, and every reason
why she should not. Mrs. Potter has
ALREADY ASSERTED HER ABILITY.
She was charming in parts of “Civil
War;” ahd in the new poetical drama of
“Loyal Love” she is even totter, and in an
entirely new way. Her forte is evidently
destined to be romantic drama, and she
would do well to add to her repertoire the
late Miss Neilson’s favorite character of
“Amy Robsart” in Andrew Holliday’s play
of that name. “Loyal Love” begins badly,
and the first two acts might advantageously
to compressed into one. The third act con
tains, however, a powerful, though conven
tional, scene, in which tho heroine defies the
villain of the play, who was embodied by
Mr. Willard, famous in London as the
“Spider” of “Tho Silver King,” and os
“Jim the Penman." In a Hamlet-like garb
Mr. Willard is perhaps less effective than in
modern dress, but he naturally retains his
celebrated baleful eye. Mrs. Potter wears
her picturesque Spanish dress well, and in
the love scene with Mr. Kyrlo Bellew mokes
a series of graceful pictures. In the third
act, however, comes her opportunity, and
those Americans who have seen her only as
an amateur, and who have rend adverse ac
counts of her as a professional, would be
agreeably surprised if they could witness
her truthful and artistic treatment
of the scone where the heroine defies the
bold, liail man. There is feeling, power, and
no little skill in her management of this dif
ficult episode, and no one who has seen her
in it, can refuse to admit that she poetesses
valuable gifts for the stage. “Nothing suc
coe<ls like success.” The very people who
Sined in the “professional'’ outcry against
rs. Potter at the start, and who pooh
poohed her pretensions, have begun to real
ize, aud even to admit, that “she w-ili make
Mr. Kyrlo Bellew, though he cannot, divest
himself of a certain self-conscious air, not
unnatural iu an actor who is perpetually
playing heroes, and being adored, and
TOLD HOW BEAUTIFUL HE IS,
appears to great advantage in “Loyal
Love.” Ho is one of the few actors on the
stage that can wear a costume to perfection,
and his movements, too, are extremely
graceful. The power which he throws into
certain defiant speeches comes, moreover,
as an agreeable surprise. The young ladies
who burn incense tofore the shrine of Bel
low in New- York should certainly adorn it
with a photograph of the divinity in the
superb costumes—-one brown, one green—
which he wears in “Loyal Love,”
That Mrs. Potter will bo photographed in
her dresses goes without saying. The most
effective of those is made of silk, of that pe
culiar blue shade that looks as though it
were clouded with white. The garniture is
of white Spanish lace, and the peculiarity
of the mediaeval costume lies in voluminous
sleeves, banded in tight at the wrist, and ar
ranged in fine, narrow pleats. Mrs. Potter’s
photograph, in every variety of costume,
from Marie Stuart-like black velvet to
nyinpli-like drapery, adorn the shop win

two new pictures of royulty, it has no fresh
Tho proverbial dulness of the London
Sunday is intensified In August, when, with
the exception of a few birds of passage and
a crowd of country cousins, there is “no
one iu town;” anil those jiersons recently
accustomed to the comparative gayety of
the day of p*st iu France—to the tranquil
enjoyment of tho Parisians, wandering up
and down the Champs Eiysees, or the more
unrestricted amusements of watering place
existence- survey with a shudder the long
and dismal vista of Regent street, the de
serted precincts of Piccadilly, tho closed
and gloomy houses iu the great squares.
The hilarious strains of a Salvation Army
bund alone fail upon the ear. and so mi
eventful is the day that one actually
welcomes the breathless announcement
of an excited charwoman: “ Blouse.
sir, there is such a fire in Regent street, ana
Capt, Hhaw m there in all his regimentals,
and tho fire engines what practices in the
square, and its all ablaze”’ That something,
or anything, should dare to to "ablaze”
during the peaceful hours of a London Sun
day, is, indeed, a profanation. I hope Lon
doners who happen to to in town usually
have an excellent way of “getting rid of
Sunday.” They simplify matters by going
out of town. It is, however, “a little too late
for the rivers, and a little too early for
Brighton,” and those unfortunate strangers
who pass the Sabbath in deserted London
in the fated mouth of August will to apt
never to forget it. WaLSINUHAm.
The City Council Determined to Col

behind. The affair has caused quite a sen

The Boston Salute.
Boston Letter to The Denver Republican.
The Boston man does not bow to his
womankind in the street—that is to say he
does not take off his hat, but. merely touches
the brim with one Huger, regarding that
simple gesture as a sufficient exhibition of
his respect for the female of his species.
This remark does not, however, apply to the
local swell, who has his own peculiar style
of acknowledging a lady’s salutation.
I saw the method very prettily illustrated
yesterday afternoon while on my way across
the Common. Three young gentlemen,
dressed iu the height of the latest fashion,
came swinging gracefully along with that
peculiar lock-step which distinguishes the
Havard undergraduate. Presumably they
had just run up to the city for a little shop
ping from Nahantor some other fashionable
watering place not far from town. Each
wore baggy trousseaus of English check
with a black cutaway, left unbuttoned so as
to disclose a cream-colored waistcoat and
a wide expanse of a shirt bosom, striped
horizontally in pink. Their tall white col
lars were encircled with sky-blue cravats,
with scarf pins stuck in the upper left-hand
corners; their derby hats, of a chocolate
and milk tint, were moulded in the newest
bulge, and each carried a small log knobbed
heavily with silver.
While as yet these giled youths had not
approached within thirty feet of ine, a
young woman with a massive metal chain
about her waist and skirts so tight as to
render the outlines of her graceful limbs at
tractively perceptible as she walked, passed
me going at a faster pace than I, in the
same direction. A glimmer of recognition
illuminated the hitherto expressionless faces
of the gilded youths aforesaid, each of
whom halted almost imperceptibly on his
left foot, raised his dexter paw and taking
off his “tile” with a quick movement, held
it for an instant slightly extended toward
the object of the solute; then giving it a
spasmodic jerk in the air replaced it upon
his head. The operation required precisely
three seconds, as near I could estimate it,
and was performed in one time and three
motions. To do it properly must require
long practice, but who wpuld not to willing
to devote some labor to the acquisition of a
style upon which Boston has set the seal of
its approval *
