Chautauqua Settles Down to
Business Today.
First Lecture on Domestic
Science Deliyered.
Gires a Short Study of the Poet
Kilties Band Pleases a Large
The second day of the Chautauqua
at Garfieldtpark opened with the regu
lar devotional meeting at 8:30 a. m.,
which was followed by a bible lecture
by Dr. W. M. Patten, professor of
biblical literature and philosophy,
Baker university. This lecture is the
first of a series on "How We Get Our
Bible," and the particular subject was
"Bible Lands." Dr. Patten showed
the tendencies of the different tribes
of the land In which the Israelites
dwelt and their influence upon the
chosen people. He compared-the no
madic -and agricultural people. He
showed that the Jews were not purely
a Semitic people, but, though mixed,
still remained a sejparate and peculiar
people. Babylon, -the people of the
Euphrates valley, , Amorites, Samari
tans. Greece and Rome, all had their
influence upon the Christian religion.
Indeed without Greece and Rome
there would not have been the rapid
spreading of the Gospel by Paul and
the other early Christian ministers.
At 10 o'clock Mrs. Margaret Hill
McCarter of this, city began her se
ries of discourses; , "Summer Mornings
with the Poets." , The speaker stated
that three things should be gained by
these mornings with the poets: In
spiration, beauty and peace. The first
of the series was on Alfred Tennyson.
He was poet laureate for forty years
and a peer for seven years. Not as a
peer that we hold him great for a
peerage Is nothing compared to the
greatness of the man. Mrs. Carter
said that Tennyson was differently
constituted than our present day poets
and that he was not great like Shakes
peare. His work seemed, to be the re
fining of the masses of society. He
was a great English patriot. His pa
triotism was such that It can apply to
America as well as to his own little
island and indeed might be called the
parent to our own. His was a great
breadth of Interest and sympathy. He
could write the simple and beautiful
lullaby, the jingle verse, or the state
ly and dignified music of the psalm.
His conception of Christianity was
also dwelt upon and "In Memorlam"
was taken as the example of his
friendship, and Christian resignation.
His death was as beautiful as his life
and his last poem "Crossing the Bar,"
is one of the most beautiful short
poems in the English language.
At 11 o'clock Miss Margaret Hag
gart, head of the department of house
hold economics. Agricultural college,
New Mexico, gave a talk on domestic
science. This talk was one of value to
the housewife and was interspersed

KUtles Band Pleases.
About four thousand people gather
ed at Garfield park to listen to the
evening concert by . the Kilties band
and no one was disappointed with the
programme rendered. Although there
were not seats for all. few left before
the concert was entirely finished. It
would be drawing it rather mildly to
say that the band made a Hit, for they
were compelled to respond to encores
after fully one-half of their selections.
The programme was mostly made up
of patriotic and love songs the music
that lies near to the heart of' an
American audience. Several times
during the playing of national airs the
people began cheering and it was evi
dent that they were with the kilted
players from first to last. It was a
fine tribute from the American to the
Scotch when the audience so heartily
applauded the playing of "Auld Lang
Syne" which is perhaps more generally
known and loved than any other song
of the great Scotch bard. Especially
worthy of mention was the work of
Mr. Richard Stoss, who delighted the
audience with his cornet solo work
supported by the band. A notable
feaure of the entertainment was the
dancing of Mr. AFrazer, who per
formed with rare, skill the "Sword"
and "Jack Tar" dances. This together
with the music on the bagpipes was a
pleasant diversion and was fully as
enjoyable as the remainder of the pro
gramme. 14 ' i v '
The lights were hardly adequate for
the size of the auditorium but the
management have "promised to have
this defect remedied before this even
ing's programme 5"here was quite a
little space in' therear of the audi
torium which, might have been nilea
with benches for a1, part of the crowd
that was compelle to stand and those
in charge will no doubt look after the
patrons comfort In this respect also.
Capt. J. Gi Waters 'at the Chautauqua.
- In spite of the intermittent rain of
the afternoon, a- good sized orowd
turned out to witness the opening of
thts Chautauqua 'course. It rained
Just enough, to make things. a little
disagreeable but did not interfere
with the jrogramme save to shorten
the- flag raising ceremony somewhat.-
At about 2:80 o'clock the crowd as
sembled and listene'd to a few remarks
bv Capt. William Peterson, comman
der of the G. A. R., which organiza
tion had charge of the ceremonies. He
Was followed by Capt. P. H. Coney and
Mr. Cyrus Corning. As the flag went
up, the audience sang "The Star
Spangled Banner," led by Mr. M. C.
Holman. At the conclusion "Amer
ica" was sung and then all adjourned
to the auditorium to listen to the pro
gramme by thf Kilties band.
The band appeared in the uniform
of the native Scot, led by Mr, Albert
Cook,, and rendered a programme
which was thoroughly enjoyed by alL
The class of music which they play is
of a type that can be enjoyed by
everyone and their popularity was evi
denced by the size of the crowd on so
unfavorable a day. During the inter
mission between the two parts of the
musical programme, the president of
the association, Rec. C. E. Holcomb,
introduced Capt. J. G. Waters, who
spoko in behalf of the association.
Captain Waters, besides bidding the
visitors welcome, assured them of the
moral and physical cleanliness of the
grounds and the city. He said that
Topeka can boast of a city free from
the degrading vices of many of the
other cities of the land. He also took
occasion to speak at some length on
the need of the nation along the lines
of Christian patriotism for which the
Chautauqua association stands. He
congratulated the association on hav
ing steered clear of the disgrace of
securing such men as Burton and Till
man whose speeches are in opposition
to the spirit of our institutions. He
warned the churches against permit
ting men whose deeds are unworthy,
to remain as communicants. The
Kilties band wds also complimented
by the speaker.
The Canny Scots did not take kindly
to the remarks about the bagpipes and
the origin of the band. The last seen of
Captain Waters he was surrounded by
the Highland Kilties who attempted
to roast him in their gentle manner.
The notes of an Aeolian harp could
scarcely compare with the melody of the
supper call sounded on the back of a
frying pan suggesting a "Pike" or "War
path." Over three-fourths of the living tents
were taken before the afternoon was
over. Considering the weather condi
tions, a fine showing has been made and
the management feel that the enterprise
has made an excellent beginning.
Considerable trouble was experienced
last evening by those attempting to gain
entrance to the grounds in carriages and
automobiles. If those coming in such
conveyances will take Quincy street
route straight through, all difficulty will
be avoided.
Most of the headquarters of the dif
ferent organizations are in readiness
to receive visitors. They are operated
as rest and display rooms.
Not a little delay Is caused by the de
fective switch as the "T" opposite the
grounds. If the railway company could
take care of this and also mass a few ,

night and carries a great deal of drift

water is eating back into the bank

ready to be washed into the creek.
