SIX DAY CHAUTAUQUA

Days Not Popular.

wun its lull bIx day progrunt. Tho
managor suggested that EIIIbou
Whlto did not coro to bring tho 'six
day program bo far from tho main
lino of railroad again and asked that
wo tako their four day program but
this did not meet with approval.
Thq local committee mot tho ob
ligations tbla year meeting the guar-
Uantee the opening day of tho Chau
tauqua. It waa rather a surprise
when the Ellison-White mansgoment
camo back the day before the closing
with the .proposition ef discontinuing
tho .six 4ya'ad substituting the
four, but'aea ft was found tho com
mittee, waf Id not accept tho four a
telegram was dlatched to head
quarters to get instructions, Th'j
reply wrts that Burns could have thn '
six days If we provided a greater
guurantco. While la waa felt wc were
being held up In a way tho conditions
ftveru mot nnd the Chautauqua assur
ed for next scaspn.
Opinion Is divided as to tho merit
of the program this season as com
pared to last. It Is quite ovldout from
Koucrnl commont that this season'
attractions did not appeal to tho
masses as did that of last year, yet
tho numbers this seafon were good.
Tbo lecturers wars all that could bo
asked in fact 'aomo porforrcd the
lectures of thla season to last. Tho
music was of a higher clnss as a
"wholo this season last your tit.)
music was more popular and took
Tho proportion of another organ
isation bringing us a Chautauqua
program. Is unlvr .consideration and
Jt la likely there will bo a movement
toward getting In touch with another
Organization before another year and
L'co what can be dono toward getting
