It is the Sandbourne of Thomas Hardy's "Tess of the D'Urbervilles," de scribed by that great novelist as "a city of detached mansions; a Mediterranean lounging place on the English Chan nel. . . . Within the space of a mile from its outskirts every irregularity of the soil was prehistoric, every channel an undis turbed British trackway; not a sod had been turned since the days of the Caesars." On one side is the ancient port of Poole, once the haunt of smugglers, and intimately connected with the New foundland fishing trade; on the other Christchurch with its wonderful Nor man Priory Church. A few miles in land is the unique Minster Church of Wimborne, the foundations of which were laid in the reign of Edward the Confessor. This contains a chained li brary dating from 1343. Not far west ward are the ruins of Corfe Castle, where Edward the Martyr was mur dered by Queen Elfrida in the year 978. This castle was rebuilt by William the Conqueror and partly destroyed during the civil wars of Cromwell's days. The ever-glorious New Forest, that famous hunting-ground of Norman kings; Winchester and Salisbury with their magnificent old cathedrals; Stone henge, the famous relic of the Druidical era; and Dorchester with its Roman amphitheater, are all easy of access. Nor are up-to-date amenities lacking. The famous Municipal Orchestra, under Sir Dan Godfrey, plays daily at the Winter Gardens. There are two Municipal Golf Courses in the town, and other links in the vicinity, as well as ample provision for tennis and other games. The bathing facilities are excellent. American and other tourists will find it a charming center, and may obtain the official guide, with illustrations, maps and informa tion as to the many first-class hotels and boarding houses, from the Town Clerk, Town Hall, Bournemouth.
