Page Two NEW Pi AS A CHAUTAUQUA CHAUTAUQUA, ILL. PIASA CHAUTAUQUA AS A SUMMER RESORT PIASA CHAUTAUQUA is a summer resort with an As- sembly season, conducted on broad lines, as outlined more fully on page 4. It is now in its 29th year, and has always observed the same broad, liberal policy which has been appreciated by all who have enjoyed their summers there. It may be interesting to some to know something about the origin of the word which is so dear to us all. According to legend, the Piasa was a large bird, or rather half bird, half beast, that made its home in a cave in the Piasa bluffs. At night it slept, but in the day time went forth to seek its human prey, but was finally killed by old Ouatoga, the Indian chieftain, who jeopardized his own life to save his people from extinction. We cannot vouch for the truth of the statements regard- ing the Piasa bird, but we can assure one and all that there is no longer any terror of this or any other kind at Piasa, but there are beautiful woods and groves surrounding this quiet, peaceful valley where the soft, refreshing breezes of summer and the glorious paintings of Nature all sing the song of rest and peace at Piasa Chautauqua. "The groves were God's first temples; ere man learned To hew the shaft and lay the architrave, And spread the roof above them, ere he framed The lofty vault, to gather and roll back The sound of anthems, in the darkling wood, Amidst the cool and silence, he knelt down ' And offeree to the Mightiest solemn thanks And supplication." W. C. Bryant. Twenty-eight years ago, several ministers of the Gospel and a few laymen decided to rescue from the ravages of dis- sipation the beautiful valley now known as Piasa Chautauqua. An organization was formed and a few tents placed, and what was known for many years in the surrounding neighborhood as "The Camp" was established. As the interest increased, improvements of a more per- manent nature took place, until at the present time, Piasa Chautauqua covers an area of 310 acres with 110 substantial residences, some of them quite elaborate and expensive, more being erected each season, an Assembly Period each year with high grade entertainment of a moral, spiritual and intel- lectual nature; and back of all this, that which insures its success and guarantees to the visitor everything strictly first class, is the body of Christian Gentlemen who form the Board of Directors, and who have devoted their time and money to the up-building of this splendid place. Piasa Chautauqua is located less than forty miles from St. Louis in a beautiful valley between high, massive bluffs, with the Mississippi at its front and an almost unexplored forest at its back, one of Nature's most picturesque spots and dear to all those who have enjoyed its beauties, its clear, pure air, delightfully cool nights and beautiful scenery. Piasa Chautauqua is located on the east bank of the Miss- issippi River, less than two hour's ride from St. Louis, with frequent trains and boats at low rates. It is accessible from all points and within the means of all who take a summer vacation. The business man can live at Chautauqua and be at his business during the day without loss of time or increase in living expenses. Furnished cottages can be rented at reasonable prices for the season or by the week or month. The hotel accommodations are first class and at very reason- able rates. Excursions rates are offered duiing the entire assembly period, by both railroads and steamboats. The man who can only take a day or two from business or possibly be away over Sunday only, does not wish to devote so much time and money to getting to and from his resting place, and he with the loger vacation may not care to spend all his entertain- ment fund in transportation. He can avoid this by coming to Piasa Chautauqua. Page Three NEW PIASA CHAUTAUQUA CHAUTAUQUA, ILL. PIASA CHAUTAUQUA AS A SUMMMER RESORT WHAT PIASA CHAUTAUQUA STANDS FOR PIASA CHAUTAUQUA in the Summer Assembly season stands primarily for the simplicity and naturalness of Christian living. It is built on the faith that unaffected, straighforward religion makes a life neither sanctimonious nor fanatical, but simple, normal, vital, free and glad. Piasa Chautauqua aims, therefore, to realize such a com- munity as religion of that sort creates. In its independent environment it presents a concrete picture of social Christian- ity, applied not in any Utopian scheme, but in the everyday relations of neighbors dwelling wholesomely together on principles of Christian good will. In an atmosphere as unconstrained as the atmosphere of a good home, Piasa Chautauqua rejoices in all the spon- taneous joys of family and neighborhood life, enlarging the family sympathies to include the neighborhood and intensi- fying the neighborhood sense with much of common interest. Not as an addition to, but as an expression of the simple life it wishes to cultivate. THE "LOG CABIN" C. Bernet, Pres. of Piasa Chautauqua, St. Louis, Mo. Piasa Chautauqua gives large place for recreations amuse- ments downright fun. From the initial of religion Piasa Chautauqua reaches out for everything that is hearty, hale, whole and unpretentious, and finds itself still within the pale of religion interpreted by its own large ideals. Whoever loves this comprehensive wholeness of life and despises the tacked-on conventionalities of artificial social standards whoever prefers freedom and frankness will be welcome at Piasa Chautauqua, and having come, will be glad for Piasa Chautauqua. Come ye into the summer woods; There entereth no annoy; AH greenly wave the chestnut leaves, And the earth is full of joy. And far within that summer wood Among the leaves so green, There flows a little gurgling brook, The brightest e'er was seen. Mary Howitt. "KENTUCKY HOME." Rev. Edmond Barnes, Grafton, 111. THE COST OF LIVING. Expenses at Chautauqua are made as small as possible, thus placing an outing on the grounds within the reach of all. Besides the hotel there are many private boarding houses and cottages where guests can obtain rooms and board, or rooms and accommodations for light housekeeping. The store will be open throughout the season, and all kinds of groceries, fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, bread and cakes can be had at prices as low as those of a city. The gardeners have an abundant supply of fresh vegetables throughout the entire season. Fresh butter, milk and eggs are supplied by the farmers of the neighborhood at very reasonable prices. Two refreshment pavillions are open one at the main entrance, and the other near the auditorium where lunches, ice cream, fruit and confectionery are sold. A number of furnished cottages can be rented for all or a part of the season, at from $50 to $125 for the entire season, and fine lots and platforms for tenting can also be rented. In every way Chautauqua is an ideal place and accommoda- tions are obtainable at prices to suit all purses. Telephone and telegraph communication can be had with all parts of the country. Only licensed and trustworthy dealers are ad- mitted to the grounds. Mails are received and sent out three times a day, except Sunday. Have your mail addressed to Chautauqua, 111. "OUATOGA LODGE" Mrs. Gus. V. R. Mechin, St. Louis, Mo. Built in 1909 Page Four NEW PIASA CHAUTAUQUA CHAUTAUQUA, ILL. PIASA CHAUTAUQUA AS A SUMMER RESORT PIASA SPRING WATER. , THE Hotel, Cottages and Swimming Pool are all supplied with the great health-giving Piasa Spring Water, an analysis of which shows it to be almost identical with the famous Eureka Springs water. The water is clear, cool, soft, pleasant and palatable. Purity is its greatest quality. There is not the slightest taint of mineral or other foreign substance in its taste. Pure water is nature's greatest solvent; it is the principle factor in healthy digestion, assimilation and excretion. Un- adulterated with minerals or drugs of any kind, it is the greatest tonic of all waters. Pure natural spring water will kill germs which will live in distilled water. It is hard to realize that water which possesses only the innate quality of being pure, can perform the remarkable cures attributed to the spring water, but if you doubt it, the proofs are at hand. The theory is that the water, being so pure, cures by filtering through the tissues of the body and washing out impurities which clog the canals. The water of the Piasa Springs is supplied by the water system to all parts of the grounds, and to many of the cot- tages, at a nominal charge. V\ T HAT more attractive feature could be suggested for a ** summer resort than the great Chautauqua bathing pool ? The pool is constructed of concrete, is about one hun- dred and seventy-five feet long, seventy feet wide and varies in depth from two feet at the entrance to eight feet at the opposite end. Depth at different points is plainly indicated by large figures, and the increase is so gradual that there is no danger for those who cannot swim, while the swimmer has room to enjoy as long a dash as is usually desired. An expert is in constant attendance to assist those who may wish to learn to swim. Watching the bathers is one of the favorite pastimes of those who do not desire to take a plunge in the pool. Steam pipes are run through the water and keep it at a comfortable temperature at all times. The pool is bril- liantly lighted with electric lights, and with the water heated, bathing will be enjoyable during the evening as well as the day. There are spring boards, tubs, ropes, etc., afford- ing a variety of water amusements. Private dressing rooms and bathing suits can be had at reasonable prices. A refreshment stand is operated in connection with the pool where ices, light refreshments and cooling drinks can be had. No intoxicants are sold. THE SIWIMMING POOD. YE POSTCARD SHOP. One of the most interesting places on the grounds is Mr. Behymer's postcard shop, where all styles of postcards, can be had: the sublime, the ridiculous, the sentimental, the serious; also books, periodicals, stationery, pencils, pen, ink, etc. THE POST OFFICE. Will be open after June 1st and will be fully equipped with all the necessaries, including postage stamps, postal cards and all other supplies. Have your mail addressed to Chautauqua, Illinois. Page Five NEW PIASA CHAUTAUQUA CHAUTAUQUA, ILL. PIASA CHAUTAUQUA AS A SUMMMER RESORT THE CHILDREN AT CHAUTAUQUA The children always enjoy Chautauqua. Not only is it a place of pleasure for them, but it is one where they can profit both mentally and physically. The clubs and various sports will keep them interested, and the panorama of the river, with its passing boats, is always an attraction; the great swimming pool is of such depths that they can enter it without the least danger; swings, games, etc., will keep them busy, and the play ground will always interest them. WHEBE THE CHILDREN LIKE TO PLAY Fresh air and sunlight make the best citizens. Shakespeare's idea of "books in the running brooks" is akin to modern educa- tional methods. Besides this, there are special features for the children on the Chautauqua Assembly program. The boys and girls can depend on having a fine time when they go to Piasa Chautauqua this year. How often do you speak of some day's outing as having been a "red-letter day?" If you will arrange for a vacation at the Piasa Chautauqua, you will look back to the time with the feeling that every day was a "red-letter day." A splen- did program, elegant grounds, a grand swimming pool, excellent boating and fine hotel accommodations combine to make the outing one which will always be associated with pleasant memories. Arrange for the trip early and organize a party among your friends to spend the summer vacation at this delightful spot. The expenses are small, the returns in pleasure, profit and health are large. "The birds around me hopp'd and play'd; Their thoughts I cannot measure But the least motion which they made It seemed a thrill of pleasure. The budding twigs spread out their fan, To catch the breezy air: And I must think, do all I can, That there was pleasure there." William Wordsworth. Page Six SHORT TRIPS FROM CHAUTAUQUA Many beautiful and interesting spots can be reached by short trips from Chautauqua, which can be made on foot or by boat. Among these are the Jerseyville Road, with its wealth of wild flowers. Nugent's Bluff, Elsah, Portage des Sioux, Grafton, Grafton, Babb's Hol- low, Pern Valley, Illi- nois River, Alton, Jer- seyville, Lover's Leap, and the Indian Mounds. An outing among the Piasa Bluffs is one which will always be remembered with pleasure. Piasa Chau- tauqua is situated in the most picturesque part of the Mississippi Valley, filled with romance and folklore of long ago, and every spot is interesting. WEEK END TRIPS SUNSET HILL. Not every one can take a vacation. Some of us are chained to the desk, no matter how uncomfortable the weather. The only re- lief from the city, when the streets bs- come like hot Arizona canyons, and the nights forbid sleep is the Week End Trip from Saturday noon to Mon- day morning to find a spot near to nature's heart, to revel in the pure air of all out- doors and go back to work with a new lease of life, is the thing. The question of where "LOVER'S LEAP." +o go is solved by Piasa Chautauqua. Ninety minutes after leaving St. Louis, the office-tired man or woman finds perfect rest and simple pleasure and amusements, and a bed where blankets are always necessary, so cool are the nights at Piasa Chautauqua.

THE OPENING NIGHT H" 1 HE Twenty-ninth Annual Opening will be held Saturday, ^ July 13th, an event of great interest to all those to whom Chautauqua is dear; and for this occasion we have selected what is, perhaps, one of the best features of the entire program. SCHILDKRET'S HUNGARIAN ORCHES- TRA, who will give their first concert at 2:30 Saturday afternoon. A few words at this time regarding this musical Or- ganization will not be amiss. Schildkret's Hungarian Orchestra was brought over from Hungary during the World's Fair year, and was especially engaged for concert work in Chicago at that time through Mrs. Potter Palmer, Chairman of the Ladies' Committee at the World's Fair, and played at many of the most important concerts and social affairs during that memorable year. They were also especially engaged for a season at Old Vienna and received the first grand gold medal for their work. Since that time they have played all through the East, returning to Chicago in time to play for Prince Henry on his tour through this country some years ago. While in Washington Mr. Schildkret played at Washington Park Club, attended by Miss Alice Roosevelt, so it is not surprising that he was summoned to Washington to play at her wedding. Mr. Schildkret is without a peer as a leader, has studied the wants of the lyceum people and knows what to give the public in the way of concert programs. The company in- cludes as soloists, a pianist, violinist and flutist, Mr. Schild- kret himself being one of the greatest flute soloists in the world. Dr. Lichliter has limited his Chautauqua work to only one or two engagements each season, although for a number of years he has been platform manager and morning lecturer at the Merum Chautau- qua, Ind., and formerly had charge of the young people's work at the original Chautau- qua on the lake in western New York. "Dr. Lichliter is a man of brilliant parts and of infinite resource. He is one of the most advanced thinkers in the Church." St. Louis Globe- Democrat MR. LICHLITER The Anitas present unique programmes of orchestral music, of choruses, of instrumental and vocal solos, of duets, trios, quartets and readings. No expense has been spared in the organization of this company in securing the right people and in costuming and coaching it for each individual number of the programme, and in preparing the whole organization in its work to meet the most critical audiences and popular demands. The Anitas are an organization of artistic, versatile women and have pleased wherever they have been presented. Page Ten NEW PIASA CHAUTAUQUA CHAUTAUQUA, ILL. SUNDAY, JULY 14th.

"HERE COMES THE TRAIN" Page Eleven NEW Pi ASA CHAUTAUQUA CHAUTAUQUA, ILL. COL. BAIX. Col. Bain is one of the most widely known and generally successful popular lecturers known. A short time ago one of his contemporaries who has traveled this country over and over, and has himself delivered more than five thou- sand lectures, said: "Col. Bain has done more good than any other man on the American platform." No audience ever felt the sway of his oratory without a vision of a great personality, matchless in character, masterful in brain, sym- pathetic in heart and sublime in purpose. Col. Bain is just in his prime, doing the best work of his life. He has a phenomenal Chautauqua record. The call exceeds the number of available dates from year to year. He has lectured for hundreds of Chautauquas, lyceums, schools, colleges and societies throughout the United States with never a dissatisfied audience. The universal report is "He pleased, instructed, and did us good. We want him again." THE MENDELSSOHN QUARTET COMPANY IV/IALE quartets have always been a popular style of ^'^ entertainment. However, in the Mendelssohn Com- pany we present something entirely new; a quartet appear- ing in the latest form of evening dress, and in addition to vocal work, performing upon the violin and the cello, retain- ing the spirit of the historic minstrel entertainer.

Mr. Crane is a car- toonist, clay modeler, and all-around prince of entertainers ; for- merly cartoonist on a metropolitan news- paper, and his draw- ings have the bigness, swiftness and vitality which characterize the newspaper cartoons. He draws a multitude of pictures, in colors, on immense sheets of fine tinted paper, portraits, caricatures, Illustra- tions of character, land- scapes beautiful in the extreme, and marvel- ous transformation scenes, all drawn with surpassing speed and accuracy. MUD THROWING But No Hard Feelings. Perhaps the most fascinating of all the delightful features of the multifold program. Herein is seen Ross Crane's sure mastery of technic, gained through the artist's years of study from life. In the space of twenty minutes he pro- duces under the swift magic of his hands protraits of histori- cal characters and also of national types and humorous creations, all illustrating the various points of his lecture. In the days "When Knighthood was in Flower" there appeared the prototype of the modern minstrel. He was a unique character, refined, and artistic in temperament, a combination of poet and musician, who spent his days stroll- ing from village to village singing his songs and reciting his verses to all who appeared, from the lords and ladies of the court and castle to the humbler peasant folk and child- ren of the street; his great genius lying in his ability to adapt his verse and song to fit any occasion or any mood of his listeners.

THE OTHER END OP THE SAME BRIDGE Page Thirteen NEW PIASA CHAUTAUQUA CHAUTAUQUA, ILL. >:- TTHE Apollo Concert Company is a company of strictly high * class musicians and entertainers. A few words at this time would be appropriate concerning the individual mem- bers of this company. Mr. Arthur Wells is a cultured musician of the highest degree, a splendid banjo soloist, a saxaphone player, an ex- perienced teacher of banjo, mandolin and guitar, and has had ten years experience in concert work with the Swiss Bell Ringers, the Asetceam Trio, the Wells-Grenewalt Musi- cal Company, and others. Music has been his profession for 16 years, and he has entertained in almost every state in the Union and throughout Canada. Mr. G. E. Holmes has had many years of successful con- cert experience as cornet and flute soloist with various concert companies and bands. For three years he was teacher of cornet, trombone, flute, saxaphone and harmony; he is a well-known composer of band and orchestra music having up to the present time nearly 100 compositions published and on the market; among them "Prospecture March." "Queen of Flowers Waltz." "Little lone Waltzes." "Lights and Shadows Caprice." "Primrose Intermezzo." Mrs. Alta R. Wells is an accomplished pianist, a graduate of the Chicago Musical College with several years' experience in concert work. Her piano accompaniments are one of the strong features of the entertainment. She also performs an important part in the Saxaphone Quartet and Bell Ringing. Miss Margret Hucket; reader and soloist with a mezzo soprano voice, soft and musical, a fine entertainer; enjoyed everywhere she has been heard. Mr. Clay Smith began his musical career as guitar soloist at the World's Fair, Chicago, and since that date has been steadily engaged in concert work, having been con- nected with some of the best bands and orchestras in this country; he was connected with the 4th Regimental Band during the St. Louis Exposition. The Apollo Company is one of the strongest Concert Com- panies on the platform, and will be appreciated by one and all. MR. MILES. EDWIN BRUSH, MAGICIAN. FIFTEEN years ago, Robert Parker Miles, whom this in- troduces to the platform, passed the turnstile of Castle Garden, a penniless English lad. His ambition was without limit, because he had all to get. He strove under the lash which impels drowning men to attempt swimming. Yet in his early thirties, he has wrested from life fine academic train- ing. He has been the co-worker of Moody and Booth Tucker, the visitor of Gladstone and Pope Leo XIII. comrade of the leading American literati. As a star writer upon the New York Journal he has startled and moved a million readers into practical, religious thought and forced New York into humanity towards its working girls and its fallen; and while still a boy preacher he outstripped the wheels of justice and moved the vilest murderess of this century to confession, with burning and pathetic words. A success while in the eye of the nation and while the simple pastor of a village flock a marked man. A moralist, treating vice with that true sympathy which influences the vicious for good, a Bret Harte in sunny analysis of the good side of bad men and things. A natural dramatist, emotional, vivid, picturesque, he also tempers the sorrows of life with good wit and consoling, quaint humor. More than five hundred delighted audiences have con- firmed Robert Parker Miles' "title to lecture." Everywhere "Tallow Dips" has been received with enthusiasm and has been characterized as unique, original, dramatic, intensely interesting, with a helpful, inspiring message for everybody. In presenting Mr. Edwin Brush, there is very little that may be added to his already well earned popularity. He has for a number of years been tested by the most critical plat- form tests known to the advanced Lyceum and found to be a magician and entertainer par excellent, at the head of his profession in fact, in a class by himself. He performs Hindoo, Chinese, Japanese, European, and many original tricks in magic. He is a Manipulator, dis- playing the most marvelous digital dexterity an Illusionist, filling all with awe and wonder. His Comedy and Humorous Patters runs all through his program, at times convulsing his audience with laughter and giving them two entertainments in one. His unusually pleasing and magnetic personality, his con- summate mastery of his art, combined with the suave manner in which he perpetuates his clever and fascinating deceptions upon his audience, makes his performance the most unique of its kind and him a favorite with the young and old.

DAGUE, Who will have charge of the Woman's Hour Bible Conference. THE truly successful Readers of America could be num- bered upon the fingers of one hand. Of these leaders in the speech arts, there are none more thoroughly delightful in their interpretations of the artistic phases of life than Mrs. Gates. Her mimetic appreciation is such that she intuitively adopts the actor's characteristic peculiarities of the personal of her selections. This results in a vivacity and realism which goes far toward assuring her success. Her ability however is much greater than that of a mere mimic. She is a thorough student of her art, and from the critic's point of view, her every effort is complete and satis- fying. A voice of remarkable strength and richness, together with an unlimited capacity for study and work, have aided a charming personality and made of her one of the Great Readers of today. MR.

Page Nineteen NEW PIASA CHAUTAUQUA CHAUTAUQUA, ILL. Zule&e Spencer fierce In selecting Mr. and Mrs. Pierce as one of our attractions for the coming year, we did so with the idea of presenting a program, or form of entertainment, that would please most. The program which most universally gratifies is the one affording splendid variety with every feature, whether class- ical or popular, artistically presented. The personality of the platfprmist has much to do with his or her reception by the audience. The Pierces have the most charming and winsome personality. They are popular both on and off the platform. This fact, combined with their clever impersonations has made them extremely pop- ular for Chautauqua work. It is safe to say that no two artists on the platform today are presenting a more effective program than Mr. and Mrs. Sprague. They satisfy the artistic taste of the most critical, while touching the hearts of every man, woman and child. "Esmeralda" is a play in which there is more pull upon the heart strings than any other that we know of. The play has been re-written for Mr. and Mrs. Sprague, so that the two persons, each playing several characters in costume, have the effect of that of a larger company. The play and inter-play of passions, interest and emotions in this great American comedy produced by Mr. and Mrs. Sprague is wonderful to a degree. During their second evening with us they will present Rip yan Winkle. This dreamy old legend clings to the American people more closely than any other written story. We know that he was as much a fancy of a great brain as were the gray-bearded ghosts of Hudson and his men; but Rip, the jolly vagabond, and Rip, the pathetic hero of a twenty years' sleep, are more real to us than Irving, whose hand penned the immortal picture. Since Joseph Jefferson passed from the stage of life, no actor in this Country has presented "Rip Van Winkle" as does Herbert Sprague. He is ably assisted by Mrs. Sprague, whose splendid work is a feature of this excellent program. MR. GOFF. PROF. KROEGER. Page Twenty NEW PIASA CHAUTAUQUA CHAUTAUQUA, ILL.

The Directors, appreciating the importance of this Movement, have offered free admis- sion to all Boys Scouts during encampment in order to encourage the various troops to hold their encampment at Chautauqua. There is plenty of space for encampments, and no more beautiful place can be found than at Piasa Chautauqua. We will also assist the Scout Masters in pre- paring their encampment and in every other way possible to make their encampment at Chautauqua most enjoyable. ROCKY HKND." Mr. L. W.

I7OR the purpose of encouraging the planting of flowers * and beautifying the Grounds, the Board of Directors offer the following prizes for the best flower beds. First Prize $12.00 Second, Prize 8.00 Third Prize 5.00 Rustic Tea Houses and Look-outs are very popular at the present time. Many of the beautiful summer homes of St. Louis have them, several have already been built at Chau- tauqua, and this feature is encouraged. We show herewith a design that will give those interested an idea. These Look-outs are inexpensive and are beautiful. A very complete catalogue of this work can be had by addressing the Rustic Construction Works, 33 Fulton St., New York City. A Bungalow with 5 rooms and screened, dining porch, bath, etc., that can be built for approximately $1,000. SUGGESTIONS FOR THOSE WHO CONTEMPLATE BUILDING V\7HILE PIASA CHAUTAUQUA is a beautiful place, it ** might be still more beautiful had more attention been given to the architectural designs of the cottages. The by- laws provide that plans be submitted to the Board for ap- proval, but in many cases this has not been done and particularly so in former years when buildings have been erected on the Grounds that were not suitable but which could have been much more attractive and been more in keeping with the beauty of the place without costing any more money had the proper ideas been carried out. For this purpose we are suggesting a few designs of inexpensive bungalows that are strictly proper for a summer resort and which will not cost very much, if any, more than the old style common frame house that has been built in the past. 5 rooms, screened dining porch, bath, etc., approximately $1250.00 6 rooms screened dining porch, attic, bath, etc., approximately $1500.00 Further information regarding plans and specifications of strictly up-to-date bungalows can be had by applying to Mr. W. E. Caulfield on the Grounds, or by addressing E. W. Still- well & Co., Los Angeles, Calif. In painting your cottage, the Board requests that you conform to the Chautauqua colors, (Green and White) as closely as is consistent. Page Twenty-eight NEW Pi ASA CHAUTAUQUA CHAUTAUQUA, ILL CONVENIENCES FOR VISITORS The Ladies' Civic Improvement Association is composed of 100 or more Chautauqua ladies. The object of the Associa- tion is to assist in beautifying the grounds, and providing features necessary for the comfort of ladies who visit Chautauqua; to welcome strangers and make them feel at home; to promote good fellowship among Chautauquans, etc. A splendid example of their work is the "House of Public Comfort." "HOUSE OF PUBLIC COMFORT." Situated in the center of the grounds, is a two-story structure with a spacious reception room and fire place on the first floor, supplied with usual furnishings. Adjoining are the toilet rooms. The entrance to the ladies' rooms is from the reception room, the entrance to the men's toilet is from the porch. Modern sanitary plumbing is the prime feature in the construction. The stairs lead from these to the bath rooms on the sec- ond floor. Hot water heaters are installed in each room, which will be especially appreciated. A porch with tables and chairs will add to the comfort. Here the garden is confined to flower boxes which will dec- orate the porch. This improvement has been made possible by the liberal donations of cottage owners and friends, who, as well as all visitors, will enjoy the comfort for which it was intended. All are welcome. There will be a sales booth, where bath shoes, sun hats and toilet articles can be pur- chased. The proceeds will go to the Ladies' Civic Improve- ment Association. WOMAN'S CHRISTIAN TEMPERANCE UNION. Wednesday, July 17th, Thursday, July 18th and Friday, July 19th, will be Woman's Christian Temperance Union's Days at Chautauqua. They will have charge of certain services during these days with a string of fine speakers, a gold medal contest, and other features that will be very interesting. (See program.) W. C. T. U. COTTAX3E, CHAUTAUQUA, ILL. The many friends and patrons of the cottage belonging to the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, will be glad to know that the former Superintendent, Mrs. Jesse Hanan of Springfield, will again have charge. Address her at Chautauqua, 111., after June 1st. GROCERIES AND MEAT. Mr. I. P. Smith will operate the Grocery and Meat Shop, and carry a good assortment of groceries, fruits in season, fresh and dried meats.

NEW LAUNDRY AT CHAUTAUQUA Mr. Fred Smith of Alton will have charge of the Laundry at Chautauqua, during the entire season. Shirts, collars, cuffs, skirts, shirtwaists and fancy washing a specialty. Terms will be the same as at Alton. Mr. Smith is a reliable man and guarantees satisfactory service. Page Twenty-nine NEW PIASA CHAUTAUQUA CHAUTAUQUA, ILL. "SUMMER RiEST" Women's Christian Home Association, St. Louis, Mo. Summer Rest, the vacation resort for business women that has for many years been successfully conducted by the man- agers of the Women's Christian Home, of St. Louis, (the oldest branch of the St. Louis Women's Christian Associa- tion), is permanently located on one of the most attractive sites of the beautiful grounds of Piasa Chautauqua. One year ago the management purchased and improved a delight- ful cottage, to which it cordially invited business women who desired a pleasant, restful vacation at small expense. They accepted the invitation, were enthusiastic in their praise of the place, and sent their friends. The one summer convinced the ladies of the Board that they must enlarge their borders, and having the opportunity, they purchased the building for- merly known as Roades' Hotel, and now have abundant room for many guests. The building is located near the station and steamboat landing, near the swimming pool, the store, the Auditorium and the Spring. The Roades Hotel has always been a popular hostelry with good accommodations at reasonable rates. Even this good reputation will be improved under the present management, who greatly desire the patronage of those whom they wish to benefit. Any woman of good moral character, earning her living, and mother and sisters dependant upon her, are cor- dially invited to spend their vacation at Summer Rest. Board $3.00 per week; special terms when necessary. Mrs. A. L. Rider, the lady who so acceptably conducted the Rest last summer, will be in charge. Summer Rest will open June 1st. Until the industrial women occupy the entire hotel, friends of the Christian Home are invited to hold house-parties at a low rental. For such a purpose no more charming spot can be chosen.

Piasa Chautauqua was not organized for the purpose of making money. Its revenue is derived from gate admissions, concessions, assessments against property holders, and gifts from friends. From June 1st to Sept. 15th, every person on the Piasa Chautauqua Grounds is required to have a ticket. No extra fee will be charged for the Bible Conference, the Conference being supported by contributions from friends. RATES OF THE TICKET SYSTEM. The ticket system of Piasa Chautauqua has been worked out in an effort to protect the interest of the Association, and do everybody justice. The expense of keeping up the Grounds is very heavy and the sale of tickets being the prin- cipal source of revenue it requires close attention to that feature. The holder of a ticket does not pay for entrance only, but for privileges provided. The Association is not responsible for lost tickets but will in every way possible assist in recovering the lost ticket. If the ticket is not recovered, the loser is expected to purchase a ticket covering the time of the original ticket. This is necessary for the reason that the ticket when found may be used by some other person. ADMISSION Price of Gate Tickets BO.I A ' 1 s ^' y VoTy"" Week EnJ Assembly 1 Week Assembly 23 D.y.
