A Worth While Vacation During the
Christinas Season
it is not generally appreciated that
it is possible to take a holiday vaca
tion around the Christmas season which I
will embrace both an oceain trip to a
peaceful island and a delightful period )
ashore and at the saime time permit oi i
a return to the United S'tates within \
eight days ®f the time of leaving. I
This, however, is whait a trip to Ber- \
muda means and at this season of the
year, this fairyland of nature is in
the fullness of its beauty, the geor
geous floral array and brilliant sun
shine inviting one to a morning dip iu
the ocean at a time when the North is
enveloped in zero weather. Few people
realize that Bermuda is but two days
from Ne»w York by way of swift paia
tiail ocean steamers and that tourists
may eonbark on the day after Christ
mas, be in Bermuda in two days time,
indulge in the most eventful week of
their lives and arrive back in New
York after a total interval of eight
days with renewed vigor ready to do
battle with the severe winter climate
of the States
Aside from the delights of the short
ocean voyage, all sorts of pleasures
may be crowded in the delightful
week spent in Bermuda which
may include the pleasurable recreations
of riding, driving and bicycling over
the world's finest eora.l roadways, white
and smooth as enamel, which wind
thedr way through scenes which form
a veritable fairyland of beauty; or
tourists may indulge in golf, tennis,
sailing, swimming or fishing in water
which rivals the sapphire for its
beauty and crystal clearness, or view
the marvelous caves and sea gardens,
or indulge in the numerous dances,
parties, etc., at Bermuda's famous
hotels Which range from the modest to
the palatial.
Even a limited vacation spent in
Bermuda will renew tired minds and
bodies as nothing else cam and the low
cost of this delightful trip which may
be arranged .for with the Quebec
Steamship Company, New York, on a
plan which includes all expense, cov
ering at (Mm ships, hotels, shore excur
sions, etc., makes the coat seem in
significant in contrast with its bene
Telephone and Telegraph Communica

New Haven, Conn., Dec. B.—The
worst wind and sleet storm that Con
