CHAUTAUQUA A SUCCESS FROM ENTERTAINMENT STANDPOINT The Redpath Chautauqua fulfilled Its promise that It would give us a first class series of programs. The people who have attended the var- l0U3 lectures musicales and the play - - - ' "Friendly Enemies" have enjoyed rthem all. There was the usual small deficit to be met by the guarantors and this fact has proved irksome to those who have paid year by year. In spite of this tact, citizens have 'signed up again tor next year, some forty-two in all. We believe the system of every body selling all tickets possible and then pooling the loss, it any, Is the best one as It did away with selling the tickets at less than their face value, which pretty nearly brought the Chautauqua a cropper and will certainly do so It Indulged In an other year. The pooling of the loss Is the only fair and equitable way as there aro a number of outsiders who are less able to dispose of their tickets than are those born here. It these cannot sell their tickets, it means they have to boar a dlspro- rtlonato amount of loss, It any. Below, we append a coupon for those who have not signed up tor Chautauqua next year and who may wish to do so. TV To THE MOUNTAIN ADVOCATE: . .

SMALL TOWN BANDS Socrotary of Labor Davis, who played the clarinet In the town band In Sharon, Pa., many years ago, Is advocating the creation of a federal bureau of recreation for tho deve lopment of Instrumental and vocal music, tho drama, tho theatro and athletics thruout tho United States. "To my mind," the labor secre tary sald,"there Is no greater Influ- once for community and social gooi! ln tho American small town of to day than the town band. Some of the plcasantest rccolloctlons of my life carry me back to the days when I played the clarinet In the Sharon Band. Prosldent Harding preserves as one of his proudest recollections tho memory of his association with tho Marlon (O.) Band ln tho days when ho was beginning to dovelop the character for accomplishment w.blch bore him to tho Whtto House." It Is Secretary Davis' Idea to have the proposed bureau of recreation co-operato with the states and the individual communities tn develop ing home and community music. Louisville Herald. WASHING WEARS CLOTHES "No man's shirt ever woro out on his back" is truo enough. It Is un doubtedly the washing process which wears out the material. It takes n certain amount of friction to ro- movo dirt and stains, and the life of any textile Is dependent directly up on tho number of times, tho dura tion, nnd severeness of tho rubbing process. Tho laundress removes' tho dirt by rubbing the garment up and down with all tho energy she can com mand on a corrugated .washing board. The' soap, tho a necessary adjunct to tho process, tn reality plays a secondary part tn tho actual cleansing of tho material. On tho other hand, tn most man drlos the nto of some harmless do tergont botng forced thru the pores of the cloth, thrn tho action of tho washing machine, moroly loosens tho dirt and grim from tho matorlal and tho soap which ts added later combines with tho particles of dirt and carrlee It off Into s solution, which is readily rinsed and ro-rins-ed from the clothes. Tho actual contact between tho clothes and tho side of the cylinder is of very little Importance, duo to the smooth surface of tho modern machine. What actual friction oc curs is caused by tho rubbing of the various garments against each other which of course, cannot be compar ed In severity with the destructive effect of tho favorite weapon of tho laundress tho corrugated zinc wash lng board. Send your clothes to tho Barbourvllle Steam Laundry thoy last longer. Phono 34. Adv. As an evidence of his apprecia tion of the public health work being started in Knox County, Mr. R. E.

Morrow had a dandy time during his trip to Dlshman Springs. Ho was n boy again for a few days and fished, swam, loafed as much as tho governor of tho state Is allowed to loaf and enjoyed tho big meals served at tho Springs with the nppcttte o'f his younger days. On Sunday he delivered his fam ous lecture, "Tho Trial of Christ," to an audience numbering over COO pcoplo who camo from all direc tions. Many shed tears as bo out lined the life, trial and death of the Master of Men.

The Governor spoke of tho won derful Influence which tho Carpen ter of Nazareth has exercised on I mankind thru tho succeeding gener ations by the beauty of His llfo nnd His self-sacrifice. After the lecture Governor Mor row was kept busy shaking tho hands of iris many friends who con gratulated him on his powers as a lecturer. During his stay at tho springs It can truly be said that "a good time was .had by all," the Governor In cluded.
