Somewhat Marred Pleasures of the

yesterday and in heavier fashion last
night kept a large number of people
away from the Redpath Chautauqua
tent; but did not mar the enthusiasm
of those who braved the weAther. The
musical part of the program yester
day afternoon and last night was ren
dered by the Emerson Williams com
pany and consisted of Scotch songs
given in kilts. They pleased their
iearepi at both concerts. In the af
teronon V. S. Watkins gave a reading
of the "Fortune 1Hunter" andl held his
hehrers in an original and( daring
method of entertainient. After the
night concert of the Emerson Wil
llama company, Dr. Carolyn E. (eisel
began her lecture on "How to be
Young at Seventy or Old at Forty,"
but the noise of the rain on the tent
prevented her from continuing. An
nouncement was made that she would
return to' deliver the lectute Sunday
afternoon at a ho-tr to be announced
The opening number of the chautau
qual Monday afternoon was a concert
by the Sibyl Sainmis singers and Miss
Mary Cameron, pianist. This talented
company preceded the lecture the
same evening and in both concerts
scored a lilt with the audience. Miss
Cameron was a strong favorite both
in the afternoon and evening. The
evening lecture was by .Dr. fit. E. Rom
pel, who chose as his subject "Facing
the Task". Reciting touching experl
ences with boys of the Great Lakes
Training School, where he was a
worker during fihe war, and giving
his observntions of boys in various
stages of life, he made a strong ap
peal for- tile encouragement and lead
