The Mattapoisett summer girl Is awheelthis season. No more does she get herself up in an agony of attire to go down | to the sea in a catboat. Not she. Biking is her only satisfying pleasure, and accordingly she dresses for the complete absorption of all the joys contained in wheeling. The interest in the Statehighway adds to the attractiveness of the town, prospectively for wheelmen and wheelwomen, and the prospect la now very fair that a large portion of the county road leading from New Bedford to the Cape Cod country, up through the towns of Fa’rhaven, Marion and Wareham, may soon be macadamized. Fairhaven, Mattapoisett and Marion are well along already toward that goal, and it only remains for Wareham to come into line to complete a chain of highways that shall not be equalled in any country district in the Commonwealth.The crowds do not come here now. New Bedford roughs have learned better, and Mattapolsett’a summer season is very quiet and sedate and altogether lonely for those from the city who corns for rest and natural recreation.Among the arrivals is Miss A. A. Warren of Boston.Mr. Samuel Weld and family of Boston are in town.Mr. and Mrs. E. F. Oleason of Boston are at Pease Point.Mr. William S. Hilder of Medford is I with Mattapoisett friends.
