At four o'clock next Thursdav
afternoon the Chautauqua's Jun
ior tent will go up. At seven o'
clock the children's play festival
will begin. It is free to all the
hoys and girls of this community.
The Junior Director will open
the festival- with a demonstration
in musical appreciation, enabling
the children to make their start
in acquiring the art of listening
to music. Then will come singing
with the Victrola. followed by
rhythmic exercises with colored
paper balls. Folks dances come
next. There wi'! also be boys'
relay races and a hunt for three
Junior season tickets.
The full course in musical ap
preciation, for ' which Junior
Chautauqua season tickets are
required, is based on a new
method, one of whose leading
piinciples prescribes the avoid
ance of difficult and mysterious
terms. The new method assumes
that in speaking of music, just as
in speaking of other things, the
director may use simple language
readily understood. By way of
showing how attractive learning
to enjoy music really is,, we give
the titles of eight lessons; ,
1. What'son the insideof music,
2. Music is a Language; What
Does it Say to You.'
3. Making Friends with Tunes.
4. How Do You Do. Mr. In
strument? 5. Songs and Singer.
6. Jnstrumental Music.

who had been up the river on a
fishing trip passed passed here
Friday. We failed to get ' the
names of the others who were in
the crowd. When vou arc in our
town let us know it, it will be a
special favor to us to find out
who you are, where you arc going
as the Signal and myself like to
know these things.
The revival meeting held at
the Christian church for the past
two weeks conducted by Rev.
Dunn of Louisville assisccd by
Rev. L. N. Bowling of Brod
hcad closed last Saturday night
with 40 additions. Rev. Dunn
is a good speaker and can ex
plain the bible until a child can
understand. Rev. Bowling hand
led the singing which he is well
qualified to do. Large crowds at'
tended almost every night and
much good was accomplished.
Another killing occurcbi our
country last week whoKalvin
Barnes was killed by k Kir
by and we undersJnoV that
whiskey was dircctlv or undircct
ly the cause. Haw long, oh ho-
long will this poisonous stuff ue
made, the worst enemy that man
can have on earth. We truly hope
that Judge Kennedy and all tic
officers will still make the fight
on moonshine and bootleggers
harder and harder until not one
will be left in the country. We
can see in the last twelve months
a great imp.vement, let the
good work go on and when the
last drop has been banished irom
the earth Satan will about be
out of a job. he .can bank his
fires , hang crepe on the gates of
torment and hang out the sign,
"Hell for Rent"-.

But while the enjoyment of
music is thus brought within
the grasp of boys and girls, it is
the same enjoyment of music
that adults require. They, as well
as the children, will value the
lessons and it is hoped that many
adults will prepare to enter the
culminating memory contest,
whose object will be to sec who
can successfully give the names
and composers of twelve musical
masterpieces played on the after
noon of the contest. The evening
blue ribbon prizes will be award

Next Thursday's Junior play
festivals will not only serve us an
