Evidently this city's 1917 Chautau-'
]ua will be on a larger scale than at
iny time In the past. C. T. Colt, who
las just arrived to aid the advertisng
campaign is authority for the state-;
nent that the program to be given;
lere from June 21 to 27, Is by all odds
he best balanced and most uniformly
:xcellent program ever enjoyed here.
That the Chautauqua is on an even
irmer basis at this time than in times
>f peace is shown by reports which
lave been received from circuits in
iperations in all parts of the country
n recent weeks. From down south
vhere the Chautiauquas began almost
it the outset of the war, come some
eports of fine attendance and unusual
nterest. The same is true of Chautauiuas
in the middle and far west. While
President Wilson and bis associates
n Washington are bending every efort
to the mobilisation of the physical
'esources of the nation, an army of
:rained platformists in the hundreds
ind thousands of Chautauqua tents all
iver the country are doing their best
n mobilizing the mind of America.
With the annual program only one
week distant the local committee is
ictive in the ticket campaign and will
nake a strenuous effort to pack the
jig tent at every performance. With
;he large number of headline attractions
announced there seems little
loubt that the public will be quick to
lupport the program.
One of the big musical events of the
veek will be the light opera "Dorthy"
presented In three acts by a company
)f twenty-five people. J. K. Murray,
Dlare Lane, Helen Guentner, tiowarai
Pascal and others of note are Includ3d
in the cast. The costuming and
itage setting will be elaborate.
Another headline attraction is Ralph
Dunbar's company of famous White
rluasars. Albert C. Sweet is the di.ecor
of this nationally i<amed singing
jand. The men appear brilliantly uniorined
and in their programs, afterloon
and evening, patriotic music will
je a feature.
Other features of the week Include
he Ipllarney Girls; Edwin M. Whitley
in an Interpretation of "Turn to
he Right"; Mrs Ida C. Bailey Allen,
lome econlmlcs expert; the Regnlera,
n music and impersonations; Dr. N.
Poon Chew, "the Chinese Mark Twain"

lor his spontaneous humor.

the fact that the National
Biscuit products have advanced In
price considerably during the past few
months the sales of the local agency
show a marked increase for the past
mob'th over those for the same month
last year. The local agency made the
best showing of the group of which It
Is one and few of the other agencies
can report an increase In sales since
the raise in prices. A large silk flag
was purchased for the local agency
some time ago but has not been dls
plajied as yet owing to the (act that
the net work of wires over the sidewalk
and street in front of the bonding
make it very difficult to hang the
Hag in such a way that it will make
