White Brothers of Sullivan began to put into execution a scheme which had been slowly formulating in their brain through the in mpr. The Whites Asa d., Newton and still Man had been born and bred in Sullivan or rather Wau Keag Point Sorrento for that was Sullivan then and had the fondness for and Confidence in the town that every right minded citizen should have in his own native place. They had been in business in Massachusetts and had there accumulated some Money which they resolved with More patriotism than Wisdom perhaps to expend in Sullivan confident of the ultimate Success of their scheme. It was the prevalent idea at that time that there was Money in a summer hotel and where was there a fairer spot or one More sightly on which to erect on than on Beacon Hill Sullivan Harbor in View of the Beautiful mount desert Hills this is How the Wau Keag House became to be built and it was an imposing edifice. It was built on land belonging to Watson White another brother but his death occurred before the House was built therefore he was never associated with the White Brothers. The Winter that gave birth to this Enterprise will Long be Reemt it ered. The Whites brought a Crew of a dozen men from Massachusetts to build the House a sort of family party who in some ways were different from the general run of carpenters and builders. For one thing they were intensely religious and at once instituted Semi weekly prayer meetings no new thing in most towns but something which this one Haci thuss far work Neil Alon without its tender Tyves being decidedly More in favor of secular amusements Leing some Litof a Novelty these prayer meetings were Well Altein led and afi oiled not a Little entertainment for the Long Dull Winter evenings.

Those who remember the Winter of 70 77 will recall the ext Renie severity of the weather and the heavy Falls of Snow that greatly impeded foot travel. This would occasionally prevent Moody and san key Quot As the older leaders were caller from attending the meeting.

The hotel was finished in All due season and christened the Wau Keag out of compliment of the Birthplace of the White Gove foment office in Washington. Howard Davis was there but he says he was roped in. The Rockland quadrille band was in attendance with a Large party from there to furnish music for the dancing. That opening was such a social Success that on the 4th of july nearly everybody came again and brought their friends to dance to the music of a band from Cherryfield. By this time the Wau Keag House was Well launched on the sea of Success. Its rooms rapidly filled with summer visitors who raved Over the beauties of the place.

There is nothing left now of the original Wau Keag House but a memory. Let us keep that memory Green by cherishing All people of note. The Queen of Holland has finally issued an official proclamation announcing her engagement to marry. The Man of her Choice is Duke Henry of Mecklen Burg Schwerin one of the orman states. The Duke was born in 1876, and is tall and dignified in his bearing. He is a lieutenant in the Chasseur battalion of the prussian guard stationed at Potsdam and makes a Fine figure on Hui Suback. The reigning family of the Mecklenberg Schwerin claims to be the oldest in Europe dating Back to the twelfth Century. It possesses within its duchy More absolute Power than any other reigning family save that of Russia. The Young Duke is a brother to the reigning Duke Frederick Franz iii. Wilhelmina has selected him because she preferred him to All the other princes with whom an Alliance had been proposed. She was so situated that she could make her own Choice. No diplomatic reasons made it necessary for her to accept a husband for the Sake of preserving her kingdom. And no financial reasons compelled her to seek a Rich this band that his Fortune might be used in supporting her court. She is certainly a fortunate Queen and Henry is a fortunate Duke in that he is to be the husband of a Young woman of pleasing presence and Good health who evidently loves him. There is so rarely love in Royal marriages that when it does exist it is worthy of note. Of course All the courts of Europe will have to Oiler their felicitations but they will be More sincere than usual. And outside of Europe there will be considerable satisfaction that the Young girl who by Accident of birth sits on a throne is not deprived of the happiness which comes to others in less conspicuous and trying positions. Over since lie atty Lla Lestier brought suit against his brother .
