The Redpa'h Chautauqua closed |
a successful five-day engagement in
Walhalla last night (Tuesday.) ?Too
much cannot be said in commenda
tion of this excellent institution, and |
it would be a pleasure for us to give,
had we tho space at our disposal at
the moment, full details of each of
the splendid attractions presented
each day.
On the opening day, last Thurs
day, tho Hippie Concert Company
gave a beautiful program. This com
pany had been in Walhalla before,
and they were greeted as ohl^iends.
Ceo. 1,. McXtitt's lecture"rhurs

food for thought.
On Friday afternoon the Crotchet!

gave his famous lecture, "Success or
Failure." mid ho made il very plain
that it lies with us whether we suc
ceed or. fail. His manner of deliv
ering this lecture is unique, his rapid

clearly enunciated. Ile has been very
appropriately called "Gattung Own

"Saturday afternoon there was a
prelude by the White Hussars Hand
and readings by Beulah Huck. Miss
Huck in private life is Mrs. Harry
Fogleman. We had the pleasure of
meeting Mrs. Fogleman personally,
and found her very charming. Her
rendition of "The Man in the Sha
dow" was wonderful; in fact, her
whole program was charming and
entertaining. We heard one lady re
mark that in this one entertainment
alone she had gotten the price of
her season ticket.
The Grand Concert of the White
Hussars Band Saturday night was as
line a performance as it has ever
been our good fortune to bear. Wo
would like to mention Individually

Tuesday night. We have had Yod
lers here before, but nothing that
surpassed and few that equalled this
wonderful company. Humorists and
cartoonists we have silso had with
us, but to Alton Packard we give
first place. His entertainment was
without doubt the cleverest of its
kind that has ever been presented
In Walhalla.
We want to say a word in praise
of the excellent work willoh has been
done by Miss Pearson, "The Story
Hour Girl." Miss Pearson so en
deared herself to the littlfi folks, hy
ber sweet and charming manners,
that it was with deep regret that
they bade her good-bye.
Everybody regretted that Super
intendent Cass was indisposed almost
tho entire live days of his stay, and
the people of Walhalla were de
prived of the pleasure of becoming
as well acquainted with him as they
did with Superintendent. Hughs last
year. We hope that Mr. Gass will

next year, thus giving us an oppor

The people of Walhalla and com

that we are able to an nott nco that
lt will be a permanent thing for
Walhalla in the future.
A Great Gathering Sunday.
On Sunday last there was a great
Sunday school gathering at thc
Chautauqua tent, the seating capa
city of the tent hoing moro thnn
occupied, and many were forced to
Lake seats on the outside on tho

vided for as many as possible.
There were a number of splendid
alka made by speakers from other
Places and from among ftie local
Sunday school workers. Altogether
he meeting was considered one of
be best ever bold in the county.
The actual seating capacity of the
ont proper is twelve hundred, and,
aklng into consideration the num

Voting Man of Flat Shoals Section
Succumbs to Typhoid Fever.
Flat Shoals, May 30.-Special: A
pall of gloom and sadness was cast
over tho Flat Shoals community on
May li!, when tho death angel vis
ited the home of Mr. and Mrs. ll. H.

of their second son, John. He had
been a sufferer from typhoid fever
for only a few weeks. He was in lils
18th year and had been a consistent
member of tho Flat Shoals Baptist
church for tho past tv/o years. Ile
will he sadly missed in the church
and Sunday school, tis well as in Ibo
social activities of tho community.
The interment was made on Hie

which he was hold by his friends was
