Toung Men Scarce. The try which comes up from the "Watering places is as regularly associat- ed with this season in the public mind s cucumbers ice cream and russet leather shoes. It is worth noting how- evor that the wail this year is more deep and heartfelt than it has been for many seasons past.

Their scarcity bids fair to rank as a public grievance. Some of the published lists of the entertainments given at the watering places are curious- ly suggestive. In one dispatch from Narragansott for instance on Sunday the details of a "delightful impromptu picnic" were given. A list of the guests was append- ed. There were four young men and twenty-seven young women. At an "in- formal" dance in Newport on the same day it was said that for the first time in the history of that famous watering place girls danced with one another since there wer...
