At the close of the games handsome prizes were award ed. Mrs. Wolf, of North Eighteenth street, will entertain a company of about fifteen women this evening at her home. The guests have recently formed a club for social enjoyment and will hold fortnightly meetings, of which this evening's is the first. Numbers of small parties are giv en each evening at the Chautauqua and many guests from out of town are being entertained by the camp ers. The "social sid" of the Chau tauqua community is a marked one, and adds greatly to the enjoyment of the affair. This social side is much fnore marked this year than it was last. Mrs. George Sudhoff entertained at her home in South Eleventh street last evening a company of friends in hon or of Mesdames Grottendick and Hi ber, of Hamilton, O., formerly of this citjr, who are the guests of Mrs. Sud hoff. The house was decorated in a very pretty manner with flowers taste fully arranged, which gave a hand some effect. The evening was very pleasantly spent in a social way by the guests. A light luncheon was served at the close of the evening. Several other entertainmets have been a ranged for Mrs. Grottendick. "Mrs. Dempsy was the hostess this afternoon for the weekly card party given in the K. C. club rooms. Sev eral tables of progressive euchre were played, and after the games prizes were given.

Richmond was wTell repre sented. -A sumptuous dinner at noon was served and following that a liter ary program was given. The day was very enjoyably spent by the guests. Next year's reuninon will be held in the same place. General Elliott and family, og New, castle were here for several hours last evening en nroute home from Porto Rico. A number of their friends were at the station to meet them. Miss Dorothy Jay gives a children's party this afternoon at her home on north tenth street for a company of about thirtv little guests. rj The marriage of Mr. Howard La Rue, formerly of this Wayne town ship, and Miss Pearl Sharp, occurred Monday evening at the home of the bride in nAnnderson. The wedding was a very quiet one, the ceremony being performed by Rev. Malott in the presence of a very few Telatives and intimate friends. The home was prettily decorated with roses and banks of palms, and presented a fine appearance. Mr. La Rue is remember ed by many friends in this city and vicinity. .. The date for the Scott-Clotheir wedding has been announced for Wednesday, September twenty first. A farewell party Avill be given Mon day afternoon for Miss Westerman, of Marion, who leave that city next week for Warren, Ohio, where she will be married to Mr. Walter Shields, formerly of this city.

The third annual Hoover reunion was neld m the grove near White Branch Church this week, and was at tended by over three hundred mem bers of the Hoover families, there being several Hoovers present from this city. A short program was ren dered in the forenoon and was fol lowed by a large dinner, served in picnic style. In the afternoon a pro gram of recitations and speeches was made. The day was a most delight ful one.

(Continued From First Page.) placed beyond all filled, with many standing, the proportions of this meet ing will be realized. Father Vaughan, sustained the reputation made here last year as a brilliant orator and a powerful platform speaker, the force of his personality, his compelling magnetism, his mere overwhelming presence immediately reducing his hearers to a state of fascination aside from the theme of his discourse. Father Vaughan 's Shakespearian lec ture last year, which appealed to the more purely intellectual, had scarcely prepared last night's audience for his attitude on matters of social import, and his pronouncements on the vari ous aspects of society at large, espe cially from the standpoint of the keen observer of present conditions existent in this country were roundly applauded. Father Vaughan stated himself something of a social physi cianto open the festering wounds of society. People are blinded by the brilliant light of their own selfish ness, egotism, ambition, appetites. They awake too late to the danger re sultant from conditions arising from the existence of these qualities in so ciety in the ensemble, conditions wluch might have been avoided or at least ameliorated by wise adminis tration and early recognition of their gravity. Father Vaughan stated that vice, in its various forms, is eating out the heart of the nation. That there exists in this country a state of affairs known no where else in the world. That our very boasted institutions which are supposed to make for freedom of action, liberty of choice and the ele vation of the social body in the ag gregate, are. detrimental to right liv ing and the proper adjustment of the forces of society. The evil of intem perance is blighting the nation. "Rum" is the foremost curse of the day. The drink habit is the viper which is eating at the vitals of the nation. We spend $300,000,000 yearly to counteract the results of this vice and , its concomitants, to hold it in check. Instead Father Vaughan elo quently urged that the energy, the patriotism and the millions of the cit izens of the country should be spent in Avipinsr out the evil. ne saloon. the retail sale of liquor," said the speaker, "is the incubator of crim inals." The brothel is to be found over the saloon, the gambling hell in its rear. No matter what form of vice is sought or found it is always in close conjunction with the liquor traffic. The great evil of intemper ance is the foremost curse of our na tional life. The second, paradoxical as it may seem, is, according to Fath er Vaughan's lecture, our system of over, or false, education. Father Vaughan emphasized the fact that he was not to be misunderstood in- this, that he was not directing his remarks against any particular set of schools, but against the modern system of ed ucation as fostered and protected by the State. It included secular as well as public schools. The fault lies in preparing every one alike to meet differing conditions. The Greek ideal was a perfect minds in a perfect body, with a consequent scorn of phvsical labor. The work was done by slaves. The fall of the nation was but a mat ter of time. The R6mans exalted the vocation of arms. Every man must be a soldier. The average Roman dis dained work. Such a state of society soon was bound to disclose its rotten core. This country turns all classes. eVery strata, into one crucible, and presumably expects a uniform result ant. It is an impossible outcome. What we want is technical, not classi cal education. Our bane is our ideal of higher education for all. But five CHAUTAUQUA GROW schools ever get to the higher insti tutions of learning- The average high school graduate is a pitiable object. He considers himself too highly edu cated to engage in manual labor, to begin at the bottom of the ladder. Many drift to the cities to become the flotsam of society and here is illus trated the anomalous social condition resultant from our false system of ed ucation. The dregs of society are contantly reinforced from the educat ed classes, so-called. The founda tion of the social fabric is the farm er, the laborer. Father Vaughan paid an eloquent tribute to these two stable forces, and lashed with scorn ful invective that false ideal which ex alted other conditions. Some are born to labor and to serve. The fault lies in pouring super refined oil into lamps intended to consume kerosine. All this is the "Light That Failed." Father Vaughan's address was of great eloquence and replete with tell ing illustrations, and was regarded by the audience, testified to by their frequent applause, as abounding in truth and logic. It was one of the most powerful temperance lectures, in one of its aspects, ever heard in this city. Evening Concert. The closing concert of the Ladies' Concert company was, as has been in variably the case, delightfully given, both the quartette and the trio num-bei-s meeting with an appreciative re ception. The decided feature of this performance, however, was the sole of Miss Christine Levin, who has not hiterto been heard except in ensemble. Miss Levin possesses a beautiful con tralto, of a remarkable lower register, and of rich, colorful, tonal quality, and is a successful concert and ora torio singer. She has accepted a very complimentary engagement for a con cert tour during the coming season. It is to be hoped she may be heard again in this city soon, her reportoire including compositions by Handel, Mendelsshon, Saint Saens, Dvorak, and many other celebrated composers. Song Service. An immense audience joined in "Everybody's Song Service," those wishing to hear Father Vaughan hav ing arrived early in order to get good seats, so that the great audience which greeted Father Vaughan was practically the same that took part in this service. A number of patriot ic songs were sung with fervor and spirit, the members of the concert company leading. These are among the omst enjoyable occasions of the present Chautauqua sessions and nev er missed by tht frequenters of these entertainments. Mrs. Drake's Last Appearance. Mrs. Drake appeared for the last time in a dramatic presentation of "The Uncle" and her refined art has not been more in evidence than in the delineation of the character created for and made famous by Sir Henry Irving. It was one of the most am bitious numbers given by Mrs. Drake and with such success that she was caned out again. Mrs. Drake s ap pearances have given great pleasure to the Chautauqua audiences and there is genuine and uninversal regret over her departure. If it were put to a vote, Mr. James Speed, whose nature studies have de lighted audiences here both this year and last, would be put down as the most popular person on the Chautau qua grounds, for in addition to Mr. Speed's convincing and agreeable way of presenting his lectures and talks on nature an dart, he is possessed of a highly attractive personality. Mr. Speed has only been in the lecture field for four years, but in that time has gained a wide reputationn in his chosen department and is one of the best known lecturers and authorities ; in. the country. F or a number, of years Mr. Speed has contributed ar ticles of this character to leading pa pers and periodicals and is the author of a series of articles which were used for a long time by a syndicate of pa pers including the Hartford (Conn.) Times, Washington Star, Philadel phia Times, Pittsburg Dispatch, Clev eland Plaindealer, Cincinnati Com mercial Tribune, Portland, Oregonian, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Chicago Tribune, Louisville Post, Nashville American, Indianapolis News and the Mineapolis Journal, these article be ing entitled, "Lights and Shadows in the World of Animals, Insects and Feathered Things." Mr. Speed has devoted his whole life to observation, not books, and consequently covers a wider field than almost any other lec turer on the subject. Mr. Speed is a Kentuckian, with his home in Louisville, although he is going from Richmond to Blooming ton, 111., to take up a permanent resi dence and will hereafter be associat ed with Mr. Shaw in Chautauqua work. He is a member of that charm ing coterie of southern writers living in Louisville which includes Mrs. Alice Hogan Rice, author of the fa mous ' ' Mrs. Wiggs ; ' ' Madison Ca wein, one of the best known con temporaneous poets who has had twentr-one volumes t published ; "George Madden Martin," the nom HOSPITAL SECRETS.

A day or so ago Mr. Shaw made -i : l t sHmit? worous aim pouueu remarKs concerning the disturbances made by the children which seriously inter ferred with, the pleasure and comfort of the audiences, and seriously dis tracted those on the platform. At the time the ladies gave their sacred con cert Sunday night, they were so an noyed by the whispering, giggling and noise that they stated it was impos sible for them to do themselves jus- Itice. and Mr. Cook's eveninjr enter tainment was rendered ineffective at places by the uproarious laughter of little boys seated prominently near the front. A performer dreads noth ing so much as a front row of children unless his entertainment is given strictly for them, when, of course, he is delighted with an appreciative front row as well as an entire audi ence of little people, but iu Mr. Cook's instance, one of his cleverest and most subtle characterisations that of the blase and ennuied English man and his pessimistic philosophy, was rendered almost innocuous by the violpnt. lniio-litpr of somp ltttlo twtv who thought Mr. Cook was being fun- .because he made such queer faces. iie delicious humor of the presenta tion was spoiled. Father Vaughan had to ask a child to cease talking so loud last night and altogether Mr. Shaw's remarks were regarded as highly apropos. Children are charm ing but there are times when they should be seen, not heard. The Ladies' Aid Society of East Main street Friends' church has one of the most comfortable tents on the grounds. Those staying here are Mrs. Jordan, Mrs. Bond, Mrs. Jamison, Mrs. Roberts, Miss Belle Roberts, Miss Maggie Davis, Mrs. Burke, Mrs. Marmon, Mrs. Henley and several others. Mrs. Bessie' Guion Drake is an artist of talent and ability as well as a musician and a dramatic reader. She works in several different medi ums including oil, watercolor and pas tel and was for over a year a pupil of J. Ross Bryson, the well knownn Chi cago painter.
