Side Trip to Newport

NEWPORT,

R.

I.

(RESTAURANT: Muenchirger

King.)

There is so much to see in Newport, and in general so well worth seeing, that the tourist had best hire a carriage for the famous Ten Mile Drive along Ocean Avenue, returning by Bellevue Avenue. This, supplemented by the three-mile Cliff Walk where is more wealth gathered within little distance than perhaps anywhere in the world will show the visitor Newport. Bathe and dine at EASTON'S BEACH (Pavilion and restaurant). The tourist should certainly visit Touro Park, where stands the "Old Stone Mill," cause of many wordy academic battle. It is still a moot point as to whether the structure was erected by that doughty Icelandic freebooter, Leif, the Lucky, about the year 1000, or by a colonial sovernor in the 17th century.

THE BERKSHIRE HILLSSpringfield to Pittsfield via Westfield Up to the Hills Our way is thro rural landscape to the pleasant little "whip" town of WESTFIELD, and thence up the valley of the Westfield River. A grand ride this, among the gorges, and a very pleasant part of the trip. At HUNTINGTON we turn west and speed thro an old farming region. The line creeps thro sombre valleys, amid a tumble of foothils, gradually coming into a purer air.

PITTSFIELD, MASS.
