Ladies of Saratoga

I didn't follow this, honestly. Any ideas?

AMUSEMENT.--The ladies of Saratoga have introduced the ancient and interesting amusement of archery--at Hempton Beach they think nothing of a "double strike" on a bowling alley--at Nahant they frequently have a run of fifty at billiards--at Gloucester they walk five miles before breakfast--at Kittery Point they swim ten--at Cape May weep themselves to death in reading the pathetic epistle of Chandler to his elbow-chair--and at Coney Island do bathing and walking barefoot on the sand.

--Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Monday, August 24, 1846
