AN AFTERNOON OFF.
For a nice, pleasant afternoon, away from the noise and dust of the city, where you can get the best of everything to eat and drink, while you enjoy the cool sea breezes, go out to the HEFFTING HOUSE, on the Pasay road. Mr. Heffting is the pioneer seaside resort man of Manila. He it was who first realized the possibilities of Pasay beach as a recreation ground for amusement loving Manilans. When he built the tiCottage-by-the-Sea,, about three years ago, there were many who looked upon his venture as sure of failure. But it was not; and now there are a dozen similar resorts in that vicinityaall doing well.
Now, "Charley" does not like to be crowded, so he made another move on up the road half-a-mile, selecting a piece of ground where he will have plenty of room to grow, and where the sea breezes have full sway.
The new house fronts upon the great field where the annual army competitions are held. It is two stories in height, and is surrounded by a park that will eventually be a delight to the eye. The bar, which occupies all of the ground floor, is finished in native hard woods, and is furnished with tables and chairs to match. On the upper floor there is a roomy verandah on two sides of the building, and within several private dining rooms. In the park there is a pavilion, with a fine dancing floor, that can be rented for private partiesabut will be free to the people of the BIG FLEET.
The genial Mr. HefFting and his able assistant, Mr. F. W. Werlitz, are always on hand to take care of patrons. The establishment boasts one of the finest chefs in the Islands, and makes a specialty of catering for private dinner parties.
A free 'bus will meet all cars of the Manila Electric Railroad Company during the stay of the BIG FLEET to carry people to the HEFFTING HOUSE.
