Is a rare sight on those social waters.
Everywhere you behold among hover

light White yachts, with sails aa
white as summer clouds, ride there
with the grace of swans, and white
steam yachts, with brats work flash
ing blindly In the sun, rest royally at
anchor off that little shore.
Nothing ever gets dirty at Cowes.
The tamarisk which lifts Its fine feath
ers above walls at the sea's edge Is as
clean r the sails of the yachts. The
roads of red gravel make neither mod
nor dust and lie as smoothly as gar
den path. The Virginia creepers,
which swarm np the pillars of white
booses, overspread the tiers of bal
conies and almost cover the dark red
tiles of the roofs, are every whit as
green and every tittle as radiant as
the shaven lawns beside the esplanade.
Flowers there are at every point of

smart little doorways. The shine of

On the esplanade, where Is a tall
white flagstaff at every few paces, and
waiting at the little granite stairs,
washed by green waters, you meet no
burly and rough clad fishermen, hnt
only the white capped, blue Jerseyed
hands from the crews of yschts In the
roadstead. Fresh faced, well groomed
girls walk there with Indulgent papas,
and jolly schoolboys In flannels, carry
ing paper bags of green gooseberries
and red cherries, stroll down to the
dingey at the stairs, munching as they
go. There Is no haste and no exertion
at Cowes. At half past 12 on a lovely
morning I heard In my hotel the voice
of the manageress giving an order to
one of the maids. "Her ladyship says,"
she cried, "that she must half a hip
bath in her room Immediately, or else
she won't be down for luncheon."

He abed on such a good morning In so
fair a place as this diamond of the
sea! For it Is not only the esplanade,
the bright shops and the pleasure of a
saunter to Egypt point which are
within the reach of the visitor to
Cowes. The whole Wight is within a
drive of the Medina. You must go to
Newport, and, paying the tax which
was demanded of me, not requested,
for entering the church, you may see
the lovely memorial which Queen Vic
toria set there to the poor little Prin
cess Elizabeth, who died of a broken
heart beside an open Bible for love of
Charles I. You may also go to Carls
brooke and enter the splendid castle
where that poor little Drlneefs died
and where her unhappy father was
Imprisoned. You may see the donkey
Jacob summoned by a word from grass
nibbling under fle trees to enter the
big wheel of the well and draw up nine
gallons of water from the invisible
spring at which those royal prisoners
quenched their thirst. But you. If wise,
will quench your thirst with tea under
the spreading trees of the Eight Bells'
pleasure gardens in the village below,
listening there to the comments of en
thusiastic Americans and watching
the elderly gentlemen playing bowls
on a smooth lawn, as King Charles
played that ancient game In the cattle
