Day Program.
Organization of Women Makes
Decided Hit at Interesting and
Artistic Evening Performance
Some Very Instructive Lectures.
itTV In naming the performance of the
fib- Overseas Orchestra as ""the mucical
IT climax of the week," the Chautauqua
Kj programs gave out only the absolute
h, truth.. Most any of those who com-
' W posed the appreciative audience in the
' big tent Thursday evening will tell
M you -tho same thing. The average
person having no musical experience
1 usually finds a program entirely mu-
m- sicnl getting infinitely tiresome long
$ before its! end. But the eight musical
sfe charmers who worked their magic for
- us on the tnird Chautauqua evening
k so varied their uniformly excellent
.? efforts as to hold the attention of
their auditors to the very end. It is
fr easy to believe the assertion that this
E attractive aggregation was a favorite
Bfe among tho doughboys on the other
at side last year. They made no greater
m? hit among the buddies than they have
B in Cedar City this week.
IF Every session of tho Chautauqua
ft "has been well attended. The evening
gatherings were of course much lnrg
1fervx cr tnnn tno afternoon sessions. There
Sri&h' -lias been a steady increase in attend
ffiliyfw&ance each day, the averago for the
MAMSJwr.week going wen over slx hundred..
f ' "Not only attendance but applause In-
:' dicates tho lively appreciation with
?x which the program is being received.
The flattering number of recnlls giv
en most of the entertainers is con
clusive evidence of the strength of
"tho program.
" . Tho McGregor singers pleased the
f lovers of Scotch character songs and
furnished a pleasing background for
tho strenuous cartoon-lecture of Mrs.
f "Fisk. This really remarkable cxpo-
' nent of machine-gun methods in art
has developed to tho "nth" power her
' woman's gift of talking as she works.
She is one more human who can do
-two things at once and do both well.
"Green Stockings", read tho second
afternoon by Ruby Pago Ferguson,
-was appreciated by lovers of high
class comedy, and tho brilliant per
T formance of Fenwick Newell tho same
afternoon and evening furnished a
real feast for those who hanker for
the exotic passion of foreign opera.
The second evening featured a trum
pet call to citizenship from Joel W.
EaBtman. There was a power behind
the words of this rugged disciplo of
the Immortal "Abe" that was not to
be resisted. His sentences were sim
ple and lucid and seemed charged with
authority. His appeal was to that
i part of the human animal that dis-
:N tinguishe3 him from tho hog. The
h founnation of tho Eastman argument
was tho proposition that there is an
instinct to plan and build that domi-
nates man and makes him unsuited to
j any social system other than democ-
racy. The American conception of
fi democracy was his csnecinl theme,
; and no citizen could sit the lecture
I out without feeling an impulse to-
ward a fuller and more intelligent dis-
' charge of his duties as an American
I citizen. The man and his messago
furnished a pleasant surprise to thoso
of us who went expecting the usual
propaganda that is being passed out
theBO days under the name of Amer
icanism. j Mi-s. M. Plrio Boyea, whoso lec-
I turo came the third afternoon, fur-
m nished an intimato and vivid picture
Wk of the great war such as few others
H have been capable of creating. Her
H twnn stories of tho boys who &
Hj the thing across were whnt cvet?y
H American should hear and tako to
H heart. Tho boys do not tell what
K they did because they were tho ones
H who did it. It remains for tho nurses
H to give us tho facts. Mrs. Beyca is
H, doing n great work in helping us to
I see the ox-service man and his vital
Bf needs. Wo nro all too forgetful of
H thoso who oflfored their lives for our
Ml sakes.
HI The big show has been a financiul
success, too. Thero is now no question
VJ that Cedar City qualifies for tho honor
jw of being a "Chautauqua town." Tho
Kjj work istpast,. the. experimental stage
H now. Tho circuit can now bo looked

1 munity life.

Well, Cedar City is on tho base ball
map, and if the boys' live up to their
present professions and promises, we
are there to stay. All that is needed
is persistence and a little of the right
kind of support, and' Cedar City will
have thechampion, ball tossers of-thu
You would have gotten a "kick" out
of it had you been in MinorsviU'e to
see them blossom out in their new
suita(?). You felt like gettting out
of sight for fear you would hear some
disparaging remark concerning your
homo town.
But, oh, boy! it wasn't long after
the game started until you felt quite
comfortable in the presence of all of
The game with Mincrsville was a
simple experiment, and consisted of
Cedar batting tho apple (core and all)
all over the lot until the men were
tired out racing bases, and then of
turning the stick over to the Miners
ville crowd and holding them down
to only(?) 15 tallies, Cedai-'s scoro
being 27.
Mont Hunter eublazoncd his name
on the honor roll of the day by scor
ing the only home run. A number of
the boys, however, were credited with
Tho game with Milford tho follow
ing day was quite a different matter,
and both teams settled down at the
outset to playing real base-ball tho
big league stuff, you understand. And
right here we want to say that Cedar
has tho fastest bunch both in and
out field that wo have ever hnd here.
The vame was nip and tuck all tho
way through, and was won as much
by tho brilliant fielding of the Cedar
team as anything else, though tho
battery also did splendid work, hold
ing tho opponents down to a remark
ably small number of hits. Tho score
at the end of tho game stood 8 to 7
in Cedar's favor, with another innings
due our men which thoy did not need
to win.
Tho battery of the Cedar team for
the game with Mincrsville was L.
Nelson, Geo. Nelson and P. N. Wilkin
son. For the game with Milford it
was Ross and Bassler.
Following is the complete lineup of
the Cedar City team:
Rassler, Wilkinson, catch.
L. Nelson, Ross, G. Nelson, pitch.
Leigh, 1st base.
Root, 2nd base.
Watson, short stop.
1). Nelson, 3rd base.
Davis, right field.
Milne, center field.
Hunter, left field.
In conclusion, wo have to say that
Cedar City hns a baso ball team wor
thy of support, and it is going to be
supported, judging from the way tho
business men loosened up the first
time they were called upon.

Remains Detective Rocket Breaks
Boy's Arm and Prunes Hand
Down to Two Fingers. ,
Tho eleven-year-old son of Mr. and
Mrs. Will Murio of this city wns ser
iously hurt this (Friday) morning
when he touched off the uncxplodcd
charge of a Fourth-ofJuly skyrocket.
Tho force of tho explosion broke tho
boy's left arm between tho wrist and
tho elbow, sliced off tho thumb bo
that it held by n thread of flesh and
blew off tho fourth and fifth fingers
off thrco fingers "of thV right hand.
Other children who were too near to
tho deadly contrivance when it ex
ploded were severely burned.
It seems that the lad had dug tho
infcrnnl machine up on the Fair
grounds whoro it had dropped with
out exploding during tho holiday fire
works display. Ho brought it home
and touched it off in tho back yard in
tho presenco of an interested group
of little fricndB.
Dr. Mncfarlano set tho broken arm
and stitched tho hnnd together as well
as possible, but the entire thumb nnd
two fingers are missing.

tho announcement that ncgotions arc
completed for the appearance here
