Sliss Kersey gave reading, after which Professor Dix gave a lecture on the topic of "Health, Happiness and Horse Sense," which was very enlightening. The former Ferea students of Bon anza, in their endeavor to entertain the Berears, decided to take them on hike to or.e of the highest pinnacles In this part of the mountains Sat urday mornin?, Sept. 3. after awak ening from th slumbers of the past night, and partaking of sumptuous breakfast, tho bard of twenty-five hikers assembled at the starting point, then proceeded on their way to the mountain peak. After climbing over rocks and going thru jungles, the summit was at lat naihed, froi.i which the eye could see f.-r twenty five or fifty miles in any direction. Many snapshots were taken of those wonderful scenes, which are equal to many around Berea and elsewhere. The sightseers decended the moun tain at,d returned to the village in time to partake of the noonday meal, prepared by the hospitable citizens.

Professor Baird, Chairman of the Agricultural Department, gave lecture on the topic of "Enriching Country Life," and a solution for the problem of "How You Gon'na Keep the Young Men and Women of the Country on the Farm.'' As Mr. Baird is a very interesting personage, his address was also very interesting. The next and last speaker of the Chautauqua to arrive was H. E. Tay lor, Business Manager of Berea Col lege. He was to arrive, according to pre-arrangement, on Sunday morning, Sept. 4. But those young men at Bonanza, Marvin Fairchild, Arthur Baldridge, and Glenn Hatcher, who knew Mr. Taylor, were so anxious to have him come to their little town that they rode seven nvles to the railway station, taking an extra horse for him to ride. When the 7:45 o'clock p. m. train rolled in to the Prcstrnsburg depot, they met Mr Taylor nd started for the village in the vail ;v. A the roajs were ery uneven, the y.u-r.ey lated for two and one half hours. Nevertheless, Mr. Taylor" greatly enjoyed the beauty and pleasure of the moon light ride over the hill and up the valley. The destination was reached about 10 o'clock. After enjoying games, music, and a real good time, the hour soon came to go into repose for the night. Sunday morning, Sept. 4, 10:30 o'clock, Mr. Taylor, after being In troduced to the audience by Glenn Hatcher, a former Berea student, de livered a sermon on "Service, or What a Person Can Do to Help Hi Fellow-Man."

By the assistance of some of the rural school teachers she entertained both young and old with a bountiful supply of games and ex ercises. Men and wnmon who, it seemed, had passed the stage of taking pleasure, and enjoying them selves, were lured into the exercise and wiere made to feel their youth again. Even the old men entered foot races with the young ones, but tho their fleetness had gone with years and time, they were happy to be like boys again. Everybody was overjoyed with the happenings of the afternoon and decided that human be ings should not grow old too rapidly. Sunday evening, 7:00 o'clock, the last meeting of the Chautauqua con vened. Mr. Taylor afforded plenty of music on the organ; other delightful music was supplied by a vocal soloist, and the Hallelujah Chorus, which was particularly enjoyed,- A story was acted out on the stage by a number of small girls, whom Miss Kersey had tutored. Then Mr. Tay lor gave his last address, his topic being "Blindness." This address was made up mainly of his own business experiences and other experiences combined. His lecture showed the people that they were actually blind to many of the common things of life; that they should be wide-awake and note the little things of life. He told the boys and girls, young men and women, o early discover what they were talented for. His simple illustrations and plain and simple speech made his lecture interesting and enlightening to all assembled. After the conclusion of the program. the Chairman of , the Chautauqua gave a short talk, summarizing the proceedings of the Chautauqua from the beginning to the close, and tell ing the citizens how the Chautauqua came to be held at Bonanza. He closed wrh voicing the senti ments of the people of the whole community in sincerely thanking the members of the Chautauqua fr their inspiring lectures and exer cises, and the pleasure of having the opportunity i f associating mith them during these three days. Then Miss Kersey rose and expressed her ap preciation of the hospitality shown them, aid the good time they had had at Bonanza. Mr. Taylor closed the meeting by similar expressions. By this Chautauqua coming to Bon ar.za it has helped the people in gen eral along mojt of the lines of coun. try life. It has inspired mary a young man and woman to strive on and become a bigger man or woman.'1 The people realize more fully the va'ue of education than they did prior. They are looking funrard toj the time when another chautauqua from Berea will come. Now mayi this great institution, builded for then mountain people, take the youth I thereof and mold them into men and women of whom the world may be proud, and may all the steps taken in education be steps taken for the promotion of the cause of Christ.
