Idaho has this year the best program offered by any 12-day assembly in the United States. We say this because it is true. Our manager, the Rev. Geo. H. Turner of Payette, has been connected ac tively with chautauquas for years; he was the manager of the Old Salem Chautauqua for five years and he as sures us that no assembly of 12 days duration in this country has a program equal to ours. We in vite the people of Idaho to visit us during that period, spend your va cation at Chautauqua, and in the many pleasant spots about Boise you can enjoy yourself to the full. For the small sum of $2.50 you can see and hear music, lectures, pictures, go to the cooking school, the agri culture and physical culture classes; while having the best time in the world you can take in many attract ions which will live with you to be a source of satisfaction to you as long as memory lives.
