Mrs. Brown were at the Poland Spring House on
June 3d. They were en route for Rangeley Lakes.
This is their first visit here and they were delighted
with the place. Mr. Brown is an enthusiastic
golfer and hopes to return later in the season for a
game on the Poland Links.

That ever reliable firm, Raymond and Whit-
comb, sent under their guidance a large party
from Boston and other RLissachusetts and Rhode
Island cities, on June 28th, for a weeks stay at
the Poland Spring House. This is the first of
their parties this season, but they are organizing
more tours than usual to the noted resorts of the
world.

Hon. J. W. P>eaty with Mrs. Beaty of Manza-
nola, Colorado, visited Poland Spring for a few
days in June. This was their first visit to New
England and they were charmed with the many
attractions which it has to offer. They left here
for Princeton College where their sou would be
graduated this year. After a visit to New York
and Washington they will return home via St.
Louis.
