After spending a very hot sum-
mer in the city we will now go for
a season to the seashore. The
Washington Light infantry are
goiDg to Cape May, JT. for
their regular summer encamp-
ment, and as your correspondent
is a member of that organization
be will accompany them and tell
you what he saw while there.
In the first place I will aay that
the W. L. I. C. is a military organ-
ization, being tbe first regiment of
the District of Columbia National
Guard and each summer has from
ten days to two weeks' encamp-
ment on the seashore at such
places as seems most inviting.
On Saturday evening at about
nine o'clock the corps assembled
at their armory to get ready to
start; at quarter past nine our
fatigue uniforms were donned and
knap sacks strapped to our shoul-
ders, and with guns in hand were
formed in heavy marching order.
Tbe Third artillery band U. S. A.
had been detailed to accompany
us, so to tbe strains of martial
music we marebed down Pennsyl-
vania avenue to the B. & B. rail-
road depot where a special train
of nine oars were awaiting our ar-
rival, After wishing good-bye to
triends and sweethearts, who bade
us God speed and wishing us a
good time the train started at 10
o'clock p. m. going via Baltimore,
Philadelphia, Trenton and Cam-
den to Cape May, rounding the
Cbeaapeake and Delaware bays,
arriving at Cape May at quarter
to seven Sunday morning. Hers
we were met by a detachment of
the looal militia and the city coun-
cil beaded by the mayor, who es-
corted us to oongreas hall lawn,
where our forty tents were
stretched, overlooking Beach ave-
nue right into "old ocean's billowy
wavea." "Battallion front!" was
ordered and a nice little speech of
weloome given by Mayor Ed-
munds, wh'.ch was responded to by
Oommander Miller on behalf of the
corps. A reception was tendered
us in the form of a military ball on
Monday night, whieh waa a gay
event in Cape May social ci roles,
after whioh we had an opportunity
to see the city. Cape May, as we
learned in our geography, is the
extreme southern point of the
state of New Jersey, jutting oat
into the water to divide tbe Dela-
ware Bay from the Atlantic ocean.
On this point of land the city ia
built. Its resident population is
about 20U0 persons, while in sum-
mer it is swelled by cottagers aad
others te about 10 times this auss-
ber. The commercial importance
of Cape May is merely nominal,
but it enjoys the reputation af be-
ing ' one of the finest bathing
beaches in the world. Though its
natural advantages are great it ia
not quite ao well patronized aa
Long Branch or Atlantic city, ow-
ing to ita distance from the large
cities of Baltimore, Philadelphia
and New York. On an elevation
about six or eight feet above high
tide mark on a nice open plat of
ground ia located President Har-
rison's summer cottage, where he
spends a portion of the hot part
of the year and in which he trans-
acts his official duties while there.
Like all other watering plaoes
the "board walk" is a very promi-
nent feature in the city's attrac
tion. This walk is built back from
the water just fitr enough to ea-
cape being washed away by an or-
dinary influx of wind and high
tide and is on an average about 12
feet wide. It is used by all who
wish to enjoy a stroll and listen
to the restless wavea, aa they laah
the shore or watch the white-oapa
as they break upon the sands at
their feet Here can be seen the
gaily dreaaed daughter of a mil-
lionaire with her diamonds or
rubies flashing in the waning light
of an afternoon sun, which is per-
haps prolonged till the fair Luna
sheds her effulgent rays around
her graceful form, makiug it a
complete halo of beauty. She is
sometimes accompanied by a gen-
uine dude of decidedly Engliah
type, with ohecked trousers and
waistcoat, russet shoes, small hat,
large-headed cane, cigarette and
eye-glass, and sometimes she is es-
corted by a man. But aside from
trivial matters I will say the much-
talked-of summer girl is here in
great profusion and no doubt but
what she oould tell would make a
whole volume of romantio reading.
She seems to be ever on the alert
for what might be termed a
"catch," and then prooeeds in a
business, yet lady like way to aee
whether or not it suits her. Mar-
riage here Is generally regarded as
a business tranaaction, and ia too

On Thursday we made an excur-
sion on the stately steamer Repub-
lio to the Delaw^e breakwater;
the breakwater is a national work
built of stone obliquely aoross a
portion of the satranee to the bay
and serves the double purpose of
calming the incoming waves sud
breaking up the floating ice that
goes down tbe bay in winter. The
capacity of the boat is about four
thousand passengers, the distance
to tbe breakwater fifteen miles,
and not a few of our number
made frequent visits to tbe side
rail and passed through the or
deal of seasickness. The famous
"Jersey mosquitos" do not flour-
ish at the cape as they do further
up the coast, owing to the laok of
