SAVED BY ATTACK OF MEASLES. Mrs. Joseph Penlerick, of Penryn, C")"n wall, who has be-en on a visit to Canada with her two children, booked her passage to Eng- land by the Empress of Ireland. A few before the vessel sailed one cf the ;,]::h1.1 developed measles, and in "eotiseruer.ef- they were prevented from embarking. Why don't people take their holidays earlier? Well, something his to do with the school holidays, 110 doubt, which prevent many heads of families from leaving town until school breaks up; but there are count- less t ho vis and 6 in tow 11S who would delight in the early summer beauties of countryside and seaside if they only knew that facilities were available. For 51ch people the Great Eastern Railway Com ¡-¡y. have laid themselves out, writes a correspondent who has been enjoy- ing a week-end through the breezy heath- lands and undulating coast roads running be- tween the delightful old-world resorts of Suffolk. Just now, he writes, the scenery is at its best: the blaze of gorse on the heaths, the splendid foliage of the oaks and other trees that line the roads, the verdant greens of the fields, and the sparkling ripples on the sea combine to make a visit to the East Coast at this time of the year a perfect dream of de- light. Add to this the fact that hotel and boarding-house expenses are light compared I with the usual Augusttariffs, and that the railway company have started their holiday rates so much earlier than usual, and genuine holiday makers in search of health and quiet enjoyment in seaside resorts un- spoilt by the August crowds of trippers will find that the East Coast provides such charms as cannot be equalled elsewhere. There are countless ideal spots along the coasts of Suffolk and Norfolk, where quiet enjoyment and repose among the beauties of Nature ap- peal strongly to the townsman and his family, which can be reached in a few hours by luxu- riously-fitted trains, and which are to be seen at their best during the early summer months. The writer was privileged to spend a week- end among the beauties of such quaint, un- spoilt, old-world places as Aldeburgh, South- wold, and Dunwich, with their charming combinations of seaside and countryside attractions and historical associations, and would fain pass on to others the knowledge that such delightful spots are within the reach of most. Further north along the coast, Lowestoft and Gorleston, provide ideal resorts in the early summer, and, indeed, all the many seaside places which the average holiday-maker only sees during the crowded month of August present themselves with wondrous attractiveness before the rush begins." In fine, they form a stretch of coun- try and seaside that possesses a wondrous charm-and those who can take advantage of the opportunity of an early holiday to visit it will find it is all and more than the writer has said about it.
