Mine Host Buzby Entertains.

Baker Bros., founders of Wildwood, N. J., were honored at a banquet tendered to them and their families last week at the Colonial Hotel, by Walter E. Buzby, the proprietor, who is a former window glass cutter, in recognition of the toil that was required to turn the island from the vast wilderness that it was into one of the prettiest and healthiest of seaside cities. The three brothers, former Senator Philip P. Baker, J. Thompson Baker and Mayor Latimer R. Baker and their families sat down to a banquet which for excellence could not have been surpassed. The table was beautifully and tastefully decorated with the choicest of flowers, while the various delicacies bore tribute to the guests of honor by being embellished with the monogram of Baker Bros. The courses, as served, were deliciously tempting, showing the handiwork of a past master of the culinary art and convincing the "founders" that the resort they had built up was provided with the facilities for catering to the tastes of the most exacting.
