work to make Chautauqua week, be- i
ginning June 19. a notable event iII a

who have heard him, desir to hear t
him again. The people of this sec- 2
tion b.ave read a great deal of Hon. s
Richmond P. Hobson, though very few
have had an opportunity to hear him t
sp!,ak. Both of these distirguished;
citizenc-s will be on the program dur- c
ing the week, and the only questionls
is, will the seating ca4city of our (
opera house accommodate all who I
may desire to hear these two promin- t
ent citizens. The only way to be sure t
of having the opportunity to hear I
them, will be to secure a season ticket t
in advance. This will secure the t
ow.ner a seat, not only for these two S
lectures, but for the other amuse- I
ments. In other words, this will give N
you admission to ten entertainments.
Just how they will be, arranged will c
be announced later. t
In addition to what is to be given I
at the opera house, the chamber of i
commerce will arrange for a home i
coming week, and all former New- 3
berrians will be invited to come
home once again, and to spend a week
with their old friends and among
their old surroundings.
This Chautauqua week has been a,
ranged for the benefit of the whole
community and no individual will rr
ceive any personal emolumen-r: fro-l! t
the undertaking, and it is hoped that
all of the people will 'unite in makir,+
his one of the most successful E
events ever had in the city.
The following are the people wholl
will entertain for us during Chautau
jua week. It will be worth the price g
that will be charged to have the band
and orchestra in the city for the wee'. t
In addition to the numbers . givon
bew, there will be a sacred concert
on Sunday afternoon, June 18, which
will be free and at which the man

To Issue Booklet
At the meeting of the advertising c
committee held on Saturday after
noon, it was decided to issue a book
let containing the official program
and announcements covering the duff- 3
*?rent lectures and entertainments.
This booklet is des gned at the same t
time an advertisement of Newberry, i
and in order to pay the cost of its I
issue, the committee decided to soli- c
cit advertisemTents from the mer
chants and business men of the towns
and county, and probably some from
outside If there should be any profit ~
above the cost of printing the book
let, the profit is to go toward ba i
the expenses of Chautauqua week.
This will be the only official pro
gram which will be issued, and it will
be done under the supervision and ,
direction of the Newberry Chautau
qua association, and the business men
will be asked to assist in making this
booklet not only attractive, but thor-c
oughly representative of the business
interests of the town and county~ of
It -is proposed to issue at least two
thousand copies. and the booklet is to
be printed on extra quality of paper, b
