Many Brilliant Features Are on i ' the Programme. JULY 15-25 THE DATE 'A Dozen of America's Noted Lecturers "Will Be Present. Music by Kilties' Band and Singing Organizations. AS SEEX BY HIGH SCHOOL BOY. Ray C. Woolverton's Article on Chau tauqua Feature. Following is one of the prize essays by Topeka high school students, with features of the coming Topeka Chautau qua as a subject: THE MIND AMUSED AND THE EYE ENCHANTED. This is what we claim for J. Alonzo Zwickey. of the Chautauqua course. On July 24 you may go to Garfield Park and be startled and delighted by the same person that has startled and delighted thousands of other Americans. Mr. Zwickey does this by drawing every Imaginable thing at lightning speed, and delighting his hearers by a sleep dispelling monologue. Mr. Zwickey Is a Swiss-Canadian. He combines the best kind of humor and culture. His artistic talent enables him to conceive the most beautiful scenes, his quick eye and practiced hand enable him apparently to enchant his drawing board. This number is one of the best exam ples that we know, where you may learn a lot without tiring your mind. Mr. Zwickey's entertainment Is a fair art education. From watching his work, all pictures become plain to you. You can imagine the strokes and recognize fine points in other works, after seeing his. In some lectures you must Imagine the Illustrations to the description, but here they appear before you, as the lecture goes on. The rapidity of his drawing is mar velous. The pictures seem to flow from the artist's finger tips. You can never tell what is coming next. A mass of black color, magically touched, may be come a tumbling ocean, or a grass cov ered hill. Now humorous, now beauti ful, the pictures carry the audience as If to the creation itself. Earth, suns, and clouds come forth; grass, trees and hills spring up, and at a stroke a river is made. "What you hear may leave you beyond recall, by the time you reach the street car; but these things that you see will be a lasting pleasure, as fresh In your memory next year as now. This lecture will come on the last day of the Chautauqua, but before this de lightful number is reached Topekans will have had rare treats in listening to a dozen other great platform speakers and fine musical entertainments coming on each day of the Chautauqua which begins at Garfield Park July 15. KAY C. WOOLVERTON. SOME TRUE FISH STORIES. Bass Are Highly Educated and Prac tice Wiles to Fool Anglers. It Is related for a fact that the reas on bass Jump and It is common practice of the fish is because they wish to acquire grace and strength in testing their ability against that of fishermen.- Several men who say they know what they are talking about point out that bass do most of their jumping during the spring, and are especially active just before the open season be gins. At this time they may be seen do ing long-distance Jumps, somersaults and side-stepping. One bass expert goes so far as to say that he spent an entire afternoon watching a three-pound bass dragging a long willow sapling through the water and acting as- if It were caught on a hook. Leaping into the air. It would turn in a half circle as if to disgorge the barb, and then it would swim back ward in an endeavor to snap the branch. This fisherman 'asserts that what Jumping the bass do during the sum mer is merely to keep in practice and not get stale. "Bass are intelligent little beasts; that is the reason they travel in schools." remarked Walter Dumpling, an authority on fi9hing and a can didate for the nature faker class. "I have frequently observed them studying." he continued, "whether it was better taste to swallow a min now whole or on the installment plan. I have seen them seeking knowledge concerning rubber frogs, and having made up their minds that it was a false friend, go off and warn their comrades. "I have seen them studying weather conditions, coming to the surface, gaz ing intently at the sky, finding the di rections of the wind and satisfying themselves whether tomorrow would be clear or rainy. "All real fishermen can vouch for the statement that bass are fond of children. I have seen them eat up the little ones. "Bass are naturally defenders of the home life, and when a carp or catfish comes browsing around to devour the eggs the female had laid, the male will attack the intruder by swimming un der the enemy and slashing him with the sharp dorsal spine. "I once knew a bass so intelligent that it refused to bite on the ordinary bait and was only caught after a page from an encyclopedia had been tied to the hook. Higher education was his finish." One of the strangest underwater battles in history in this section was witnessed yesterday by B. Radford, the champion bass fisherman of East ern Pennsylvania. The trouble start ed in Red Run, a stream that flows in to Devil's Pool, a favorite haunt of the black bass. Red Run is filled with crawfish. Walworth noticed that the fish were leaping about In an unusual manner. Looking closer, he saw the reason. An army of crawfish was attacking the school of bass, driving them frantic by nipping at their tails. Of a sudden the fish all dartert away in the direction of Devil's Pool, and for a few seconds everything was quiet. Then the water was lashed to a foam and the dead crawfish flew in every direction. When the warden looked again he saw a magnificent 11 pound bass rise slowly to the surface and turn over on its side. Scuttling down the stream were a dozen or so survivors of the crawfish army, most of them minus their fighting claws. Philadelphia North American. "Hello, doctor, writing verses?" "Yes, in order to kill time." "Haven't you any patients, then?" Chicago News. Arrangements have been completed to the minutest detail for the Chau tauqua which is to be. held in Garfield Park during the ten days commencing Monday, July 15. No pains have been spared by the management to make this first meeting a grand success, and all indications point to the fact that it will be the most successful assembly ever held in the west. No Chautau qua grounds in this part of the coun try are more accessible to the public than Garfield Park. It Is practically inside of the city. The street cars run to the main entrance. Nature has done-more to make it beautiful than any 6pot used for a park in the west. the management thought were the needs of this community, have gone about this matter with a will. The management have aimed to make it something more than a lecture course held In the sum mer time. .... Department Work Provided. : It has provided different department Work as follows: Department of Bible Study Rev. W. M.. Patten, D. D-, instructor. Dr. Pat ten Is acknowledged to be one of the greatest biblical scholars of the state, and his lectures will form one of the Important features of the Chautauqua. The subjects are as follows: . "How We Got Our Bible." 1. Bible Land. ' 2. The Land of the Book. ' 3. The Old Testament and Its Writ ers. 4. The Old Testament the Gathering of the Books.. : 5. Between the' Testaments. : 6. The New Testament and Its Writer. 7. The New Testament the Gather ing of the Books. 8. The English Bible. Department of Missions This Import ant department will be led by Mrs. John P. White, president of the Woman's General Missionary Board of the United Presbyterian church. She has given these lectures at various places and at every place she has received nothing but words of commendation for her work. Aside from the lectures given by Mrs, White, her work will depict the life in the Micronesian Islands. Mr. Grey was seven years in the Micronesian- Islands and is a Washburn college graduate, having taken his degree in 1876. Dr. John P. White, recently a mis sionary to Egypt will give a lecture at 10 o'clock on Friday, July 19, Mis sionary day, upon "Immigration."

The management of the park is not sure that the theater feature of the park can be made a paying one, but they have invested a good sized sum of money In the venture which will be on the boards for the next two weeks and will give the matter ar fair trial. The theater is in a quiet shady spot apart from the noise of the other at tractions and is open so that there is a free circulation of air. The seats are en the side of a hill so that the elevation is natural and it is unques tionably one of the coolest spots in the park. The company will play Btock and with a company of twenty-five people and a repertoire of first class productions should draw the patron age deserved, as the crowds at the park have been much, larger than last season. . ; wMBiiMim'r' ' ' Wmmm - .,';Sf!,rsfs. i- .Richmond P. Hobson. Thd fine, old stately trees produce an effect that takes the native of the east back to the scenes of his childhood, and the splendid blue grass affords a carpet of green. Plans have been made to illuminate the park at night by electric lights as it n4ver has been lighted before. Splendid camping facilities have been provided and the supply of good water is abundant. A glance at a few of the features of the Chautauqua -which have been se cured give evidence that it is one of the best ever organized. Captain Richmond P. Hobson of Merrimac fame; Dr. Wm. J. Dawson and Col. Ham, are only three of a dozen of the most noted lecturers in America, whose names appear upon the pro gram. Besld"es these lecturers two concerts will be given each day by such organizations as the Kilties' Band, the great Canadian favorites, the Meister singers Male Quartette, the Midland Jubilee Singers, and the Wilbur Star Concert Company. The Howe moving pictures are ac knowledged by all show men to be the most successful and popular that are offered to the public. They have a place on the program. Besides these there will be lectures each day on Bible Study. Missions, Literature and Domestic Science. Instructive enter tainments and amusements will be sroinsr on for everv hour in each day. W. M. Patton, D. D., of Baker Univer sity will eive eight lectures on sacred literature. Mrs. John P; White, presi dent of the WoTnans Missionary Board of the United Presbyterian church will give eight lectures on Missions. Mrs. Margret Hill MeCarter, president or the Federation of Clubs of Topeka, will give a series of six lectures en titled "Summer Moraines' With the Poets."Mlss Margaret Haggwrt, whom Topeka proudly claims and who - is head of the department of Household Economics of the Agricultural College )n New Mexico, will srive eight lectures and demonstrations on cooking. - The entire program will cost the associa tion upwards of 13.000. 00. To lnaure the management against bad weather they are asking the purchase of sea son tickets in advance. Someone has figured it out that this is less than three cents for each number. A large advance sale will (ruarantee the financial success of the undertaking. The burden is great and those who have undertaken it have exhibited a degree of pluck, the like of which Is always needed in every community to make things go. Senator Curtis recently ad dressed the Commercial club upon what he thouerht could be best undertaken by that body to promote the welfare of the community. On account of his high official position he has been called to attend many of these Chautauqua meet ln?rs held in other p1'(e9V:,and when he toke upon this subject, what he had to say was not speculative but knowledge f ainert from actual experience. He said that he wished to emphatically assert that in his opinion there was no enter nrise that the citizens of Topeka could 'oster and encourage which would be r-roductive of more eood to thiacommun 'ty than the establishing of a permanent Chautauqua. Stimulated by the splen did success in other localities and what lar Chautauqua numbers of the sea son, it having been given In several other places already with marked suc cess. Department of English Literature. This is under the head of Mrs. Mar garet Hill MeCarter of Topeka, Presi dent of Federation of Clubs. Mrs. MeCarter needs no introduction to the people of this community. She Is acknowledged to be one of the fore most women in the state and her ser vices are becoming more and more in demand as a lecturer In places all over the west. She will give six de lightful lectures upon the subject, "Summer Mornings With the Poets." Department of Domestic Science. Miss Margaret Haggart is in charge of this work. Miss Haggart a few years ago took high rank in the Agriculture college of Manhattan, where she re ceived a degree. Since then she has been head of the household of econo mies of the Agricultural college in New Mexico. She gives eight lectures as follows: Vegetables, Cereals, Fruits; Eggs and Meats; Batter and Dough Mixtures; Plain and Farley Breads; Cakes, Pies, Puddings; Salad; Frozen Desserts. What the Tickets Will Cost. The price of season tickets are $2, as stated before. Single admissions will be 25 cents. The season tickets will not be sold after the commence ment of the Chautauqua and no tick ets will be sold on Sunday. Persons attending on that day must secure tickets in advance. This provision has been made out in'deference to the church people of the community from whom the impulse was received to hold the Chautauqua, and it meets with the personal inclinations of a majority of the board who are glad to make this arrangement. This sub ject has been a matter of controversy in other places but the, management of the Topeka Chautauqua has deter mined to take a course that will be more satisfactory to the -class of peo ple from whom the greatest support of Chautauqua enterprises come. The advantages of having a season tlcgket are that there . will be some thing doing every hour in the day. The season ticket is'good for all. Holders of these tickets will, get a passout check whenever desired,-Such will not be given to" holders of single admission tickets. A person attending each session for three days with; single admissions would spend more than the cost .of a season ticket geod for all sessions for ten nays.

' , ; There" is 'ai-v, tendency from some quarters to frown- down some gather ings that masquerade under the name "Chautauqua assembly." It is entirely natural that the .popularity and suc cess of the Chautauqua as exemplified by the mother Chautauqua would be patterned after by ambitious organiza tions, but this criticism should only be applied to those movements which are promoted entirely for profit without regard for the spread of the true Chautauqua spirit, whioh is intellectual growth coupled with religious instruc tion.
