Editorial Correspondence of the Republic:
Chautauqua, N. Y., Aug. 9, 1888.
A Springfield party had a pleasant but
warm trip, last Friday, over the Erie rente.
via Marlon, SlansBeld, Akron, Meadvllle
and Corry, to Lakewood. At Akron we
found that a tine rain had fallen. The
streets were actually muddy, and tbe air
was delightfully cooL We passed through
several showers, farther on. At Cortland,
Ohio, twelve miles from the Tennsjlvanla
line, one of our cylinder heads blew out
and although nobody was harmed, we had
to send back to Kent for an engine, and
were delayed over an hour. At Lakewood
we found the already famous new Kent
House, which has arisen from the ashes
of tbe old Kent, burned last
October. The proprietors, Messrs.
Sllney and Frisbee, have, with a wonderful
degree of enterprise and push, erected an
Immense five-story building. In the Queen
Anne style of architecture, and the only
thing which preplexes one is tbe question
whether it is more beautiful In front or
In the rear or on the sides. The office
.. stretches from front to rear and is one of
tbe finest rooms of the sort ever seen. The
stairways in the center, reaching from the
basement to the roof, are models of beauty
and convenience. The great feature of the
bouse however. Is the dining-room, on
the first floor, which extends from
side to side of the structure, and
which, with the adjoining ordinary and
private dining room, actually seats, at one
time, eight hundred people. Our Sprlng
deld party enjoyed a good night's rest and
a most charming breakfast Saturday morn
lnit. and the fine appearance and the im
mense magnitude of the dining room In
which we ate added to our pleasure. Then
we had the additional pleasure of meeting
Mr. and Mrs. Frank J. Webb and son, and
Mr. Will Babbitts, of the Springfield Na
tional Bank.
Lakewood la the society resort of Lake
Chautauqua, and the two large hotels and
tbe scores of very beautiful cottages are
filled with tbe best class of society people
from Cincinnati, Pittsburg, Buffalo, New
York, Chicago and other American cities.
The Lake View House has been materially
enlarged since last year, and Is already
pretty well filled.
Wo came cp to Chautauqua on the
steamer Nightingale. Arriving here, we
dined at the Hotel Athenaeum, and after
listening to a lecture on the "School for
Scandal," by Talmadge, went over, by
steamboat, rail and back, across the lake
and down over the hills, to Westfield, New
York, a beautiful town which Is rapidly
becoming the commercial as it is the geo
graphical center of the new Italy of the
north, for, in addition to Its old-time and
famous applo orchards, their region of
country, on. tbe Lake Erie slope. Is covered
with thrifty, teeming, vineyards, for a
Urip of thirty or more miles, along the
lake shore, from North East, Penn
sylvania, down, eastward, to Silver
Creek, New York, and from
fie shore of the lake up, southward almost
to the summit of the graceful and pictur
esque hills. Here Concord grapes are
grown by thousands of tons, and shipped
by the carload to Springfield, to Cincinnati,
to Chicago, and eastward, westward and
southward, to all parts of the country. Tbe
Concord has illustrated the theory of the
survival of the fittest, for it has outlived
andouterown all competitors and Is ac
knowledged to be the best all-round grape
in the market The vines are loaded with
them this year, and are now of nearly full
site. The grape industry has not reached
its ultimate dimensions, for thousands of
acres has been recently planted. A crop
is gathered in three years from tbe setting
out of tbe plants, and tbe life of a vine
yard is perfected. The original cost of
bringing an acre of grapes to Its first crop
is from 75 to S80, and four tons to the
acre is a fair crop. Six tons Is a possi
bility, and usually results from ample fer
tilizing and careful-cultivation. The grapes
sell at S40 to over $50 a ton, giving a re
turn of 3160 to S200 to tbe acre for the
first year of bearing. The entire product
of this new Italy is usually sold to be
eaten, very little of it being used for man
ufacture into wine. The Chautauqua
Farm and Vineyard, of Westfield. X.
Y., a fine quarto weekly, is'the organ of
the grape interest
Dr. Talmage preached a tremendous ser
mon to an immense audience, in the great
amphitheater Sunday morning, and the
Kepcbuc showed Its enterprise In repro
ducing the sermon entire In Its Issue of
Monday evening.
At Chautauqua now we have Mrs. Bar
tholomew and her niece. Miss Flynn, of
west High street; Mrs. Forrest and Miss
Jennie Crossly, of our public schools; Miss
Alice Guthrie, of Lagonda avenue, and
Of the new features at Chautauqua, this
year, the reconstructed and enlarged model
of Jerusalem, under a beautiful Oriental
pavilion, is prominent It was constructed
during the last winter, by the original
Chautauquan. Dr. Wythe, at a cost of 82,
500 The "Park of Palestine" is also a
new feature, as It has been entirely rebuilt
J-y Dr. Wythe. Fifteen hundred cords of
stone have been used In erecting Its moun
tains and hill sides, and Galilee and the
Di-ad Sea are now lying In basins of
craeut, their water being clear and beauti
ful. The park Is now accurate In Its topo
graphy and general features, having been
laid out from tbe recent surveys of the
Palestine Exploration society, and it Is now
f of great interest and utility to Biblical
a d other scholars.
The regular Fifteenth Annual Chautau-A-hembly
was officially opened In the am
phitheater Tuesday evening, August 7th.
Bishop Vincent presided, as a matter of
rour e, and presided ably and satis
fictomy. In the nature of things
he couldn't help it Some of the
addresses of the occasion contained very
significant points. Iter. Dr. Harder, a
professor at Yale, spoke of the Chautau
qua summer college, with Its 30 professors
and 500 students, and of tbe Chautauqua
now In session near Atlanta, with 20 pro
fessors and 200 students, and he declared
that the Chautauqua Idea was just
as applicable to the higher
l. rms or education as to the more simple,
adding this: "The Chautauqua idea has
cjitne to affect, and to help, and to influence
the higher forms and the higher kinds of
educational work in America. Rev. 'Dr. J.
S Ostrander, of Brooklyn, spoke of tbe
original Chautauqua, with sixty other
Chautauqua assemblies, revolving, as satel
lites, around hrr.
Prof. H. B. Adams, of Johns Hopkins
university, of Baltimore, made this very
Interesting utterance: t
'To the Chautauqua Assembly, mother
of the Chautauqua University, the Johns
Hopkins University also brtngeth "greet
ings as to an elder sister. By the extraor
dinary age of this older sister now cele
brating, I believe, her fourteenth birthday,
and by the wonderful youth of the
Johns Hopkins University now fair
ly entering its teens, I am re
minded that the older university,
in Italy, Bologna, is now celebrating her
eight hundredth anniversary, amid a chorus
of professors and students from tbecivillied
world. While greeting Chautauqua, let
Chautauqua say, "All hall, O Bologna,
mother of stud'es," for Bologna, I idles
and gentlemen, was the original Chautau
qua. It was a great educational democracy
where students and lecturers met together
In voluntary association. And, It 1 mis
take not, the future developments of Chau
tauqua, hinted at by Dr. Harper, will be
along lines that were laid down by Bologna
eight hundred years ago. Then, all hail ti
Bologna, mother of studies and mother or
One of the most Interesting addresses of
the occasion was delivered by Dr. J. (J
Fitch, of London, England. Dr. Filch Is
an old Cambridge university lecturer; the
author of various English school text
books and tbe official and chief inspector
of the English colleges for the training of
school teachers of educational and en
lightening work in England and Amerlc .
Mr. Wlllard White, of Boston, president
and principal owner of the Chautauqua
lake railway, paid a high compliment to
Bishop Vincent's son, who assists him In
the management by saying: "Long live
Bishop Vincent and long live and all hall

There was an Interesting little Incident
at Chautauqua the other night, that had a
beautiful bearing. Our Philip Phillips was
exhibiting a series of pictures to a big audi
ence of about 5,000 people. At one point
in the entertainment he announced that be
would exhibit a portrait of the next presi
dent Cleveland's picture was first present
od and It was greeted with a storm of
hisses, sweetened with some applause.
which were probably meant as much for
Mr. Phillips as the president the audience
failing to comprehend Mr. Phillips's idea,
supposing that he meant to announce that
Cleveland would certainly be too next
president Mr. Phillips, however, pro-
reeded to show portraits of Mrs. Cleveland,
Gen. Ben. Harrison. Mr. Morton, St John
and Frank Wlllard. The appearance of
these last two was greeted with moderate
enthusiasm, but the portrait of Harrison
was greeted with a tremendous ovation.
The Chautauqua crowd is largely repub
lican this year. .
Phillip Brooks, of Trinity church, Bos
ton, which has the finest edifice in America,
designed by Hlchardson. and costing a
million dollars, preaches at Chautauqua
next Sunday morning.
The writer of this paragraph met a judge
from tbe western central portion of New
York, a few days ago, who Is a prominent
and leading democrat He was one of
Cleveland's earliest and most enthusiastic
supporters, as a gubernatorial and a presi
dential candidate. He remarked that not
long since, he went to Washington to see
ids old friend, and was treated witn sucn
coarse and marked discourtesy for which
there was no excuse, whatever that be
came away fully resolved never to call
upon him again. The judge quietly
asserted that a good many democrats in his
neighborhood would not vote for Cleve
land. C. M. N.

The "Horse Doctor" of Twenly-flve Yean

Cit Tticlr early Incomes Veterinary
Colleges Hone Hospitals.
While land was cheap and is cheap peoplo
were accustomed, and are now in fact, to re
gard the death of stock as a matter of little
consequence. There was then, eay twenty
flvo yearn ago, from which time the profession
dates its substantial progre, little demand
in this country for well educated veterina
rians. He was then, perhaps he is now In a
good many places, the "horse doctor," or
worse still, the '"cow doctor," a big fellow
with a rough voice and shaggy overcoat,
who smelled of his patients, spit tobacco
juico and "cussed" like a herd driver. Twenty-five
years ago in this city there were, ac
cording to Dr. Alexander F. LtautarJ, the
dean of the American Veterinary college in
West Fifty-fourth street only three well
educated veterinary surgeons. Now there
are between fifty and sixty skillful prncti.
tioners here whose names appear in tbe busi
ness directory. But the names in the direct
ory do not give an Idea of the real number
of men practicing here. And quacks still
flourish, not alone In this city, but all over
the country.
It does not pay a skillful veterinarian to
follow his profession In a country town, and
hundreds of towns, villages and hamlets
throughout the land rejoice in their "horse
and cow doctors." Many 'of them are men
of good common sense and can pull their
patients through, but the large cities, where
stock is valuable, cant exactly be proud of
veterinarians of a class that humanitarians
protest against An animal cannot tell its
troubles, cannot sue for damages; but If It
could, would it not resent the offices of a
"doctor" who can scarcely write his own
name! Yet on good authority, it may be
said that there are such men in the profes
sion. It is said that out of 0,000 or 8,000
veterinary surgeons in tbe country only 1,000
are educated.
The profession has long had to bear the
odium of quacks with much cost to itself.
Two years ago the societies showed the legis
lature the necessity of passing an act for
regulating the practice of veterinary surgery.
It was provided that all veterinarians who
had practiced three years prior to the pas
sage of the act should be allowed to continue
in practice on filing with the county clerk a
certificate to that effect
Professor Law employs from fourteen to
sixteen surgeons in the services of the bureau
cf which he is the head. Tbe lowest salary
he pays is $1,200 a year, and that to a recent
graduate; while one of his most capable
assistants gets $10 a day and expenses. "Look
at my 'Rogues' Gallery,' " said a well known
veterinary surgeon the other day, pointing
to tbe pictures of tbe graduates of his col
lege. "All of those 2S0 fellows, except half
a dozen, are doing well, making from $1,400
to $S,000 a year." Professor Liautard is an
enthusiast in the. future of his profession.
"In ten years," said be, with a shrug of his
shoulders, 'the American veterinarian will
eclipse the world." Why should not the pro
fessor bo right! Ho came here twenty-five
years ago from France. Then, in this city,
there were only three f roper ly educated
veterinarians, and now there are between
fi f ty and sirtf. There are no w two colleges,
several well equipped hospitals, veterinary
societies and veterinary journalism firmly
established. Besides that, tbe profession is
respected by the medical fraternity. One of
tbe colleges here is sadly overcrowded, and
has sent out an appeal for a building fund.
Tho hospitals are always full end are obliged
to turn away patients at times. The value
of stock has greatly increased. The domestic
animals ot the United States now repre
sent an aggregate wealth of upward of
There are about six veterinary colleges in
this country, and four of them, like most
American institutions, owe their success to
their own efforts. Tbe European colleges'are
subsidized by their governments. Yet France
is said to have only three colleges, Germany
no more than this country, and England even
less. But governmental assistance enables
even Roumania to give students a
five years' course; France four, Portu
gal five, Russia four, Sweden four,
Holland four, Germany three and one
oolf and England three. Tbe course re
luired here is only two years, and short
years at that Germany requires about forty
hours of recitations and lectures a week for
the first year, and nearly sixty hours the
becond year.
The hospital system has made good prog
ress here of late years, but it isaayetcrudo
and inadequate, according to the opinion of
a well known veterinarian who is connected
with a hospital of good standing. There are
not enough hospitals here and the best man
aged ones are generally overrun. One . hos
pital was opened five years ago with accom
modations for six horses. Now it can take
care of thirty horses and a large number of
dos. Twenty thousand dollars were taken
in at that place last year. The colleges also
havo hospitals.
Tho horses are comfortably stalled in tho
hospitals, some of them having bos stalls.
The other day a reporter saw one horse tak
ing electric shocks for spinal troubla with as
much equanimity as a human being. Tho
sling is an interesting appliance. It is used
to support a horse that has lamed or strained
itself, or is not strong enough to stand all
the time. The sling is large enough to give
a horso a good imitation of a hammock
swing, and it is rather interesting to see a
dozen horses in their stalls lazily enjoying
tbe support of their slings. An ingenious
machine is used for securing horses that are
to bo operated on. It looks like a small
"thrashing" machine. The horso is fastened
to a part of the machine which looks like a
let down leaf of a dining table. The assist
ants turn a crank and the leaf with the horse
fastened to it slides up to its place on top of
the table and there the horse is high and dry
and ready to be operated on by men who un
derstand their business. New York Tribune.

Who does not know that the sufferings,
peril and short life of our Infants is largely
due to ignorance ou the part of mothers of
the common laws n hich govern development,
and secure healthful activity in life and yet
the rules ore few, simple and easy of applica
tionas proper clothing, loosely worn and
moderate lu length; proper food, taken at
regular intervals (which for months should
be mother's n-ilk only, where the supply is
sufficient and quality good); abundant sleep;
freedom from nervous excitement too often
brought about b senseless endeavors to show
off the brightness or cunning ways of the
child; proper care taking at the periods of
teathing, learning to walk, etc
How fey realize that deformities arise
from encouraging a child to walk before tho
bony structures are sufficiently hardened, and
from allowing it to sit too continuously
w bile the bones are more cartilaginous than
osseous. Especially may this habit prove
disastrous to female children, from the fact
that the diameter of the pelvia may be so
much changed by continued pressure of tho
superincumbent weight of the trunk of the
body and head upon it that in after life ma
ternity may prove not only extra hazardous,
but perchance, impossible to say nothing
of the risk of producing spinal curvatures
and chest deformities in either set Fresh
air and opportunity for voluntary exercise
of the limbs are iu the province of every
mother to give, but are tbey regularly ac
corded by a majority!
Use of drugs should be sedulously avoided,
and yet there are mothers, countless in num
ber, who, through ignorance, ply the
stomachs of their babes continuously, not
with the old time catnip and mint teas only,
but with vile nostrums, which, under the
seductive titles ot soothing syrups and car
minatives, carry blunted sensibilities, dull
ness, and ofttimes the germs of imbecility,
and even death itself, in their .train. Poor
babes! must they ever fill tho rolo of vic
tims t I fear, yes, till such time as women
rouse from their lethargic mental condition
and shako off1 the shackles of ignorance,
through which these wholesale abuses re
main possible. Experience and observation
alike point to the facts that most of the suf
fering incident to tho period of early woman
hood and its fixation (ail too frequently for
life) is due to the neglect of mothers, who
allow their daughters to enter upon tho most
important period of their lives, wholly unac
quainted with tho nature of tho changes
hich are taking place in the economy, and
the necessity for core taking which grows
out of them, and this neglect applies almost
equally to women in every phase and condi
tion of life, tho generally intelligent and cul
tivated, no less than their oppositesl Anna

No time can ever reconcile a cis-Atlantio
ear to the heartiness w ith which an otherwise
well bred Euglish lady will talk frankly of
"tubbing" and of "cleaning herself." It sug

gave hiirLtoo much of their natural history.
I do not know any well educated Americans,
except one or two southern lady novelists,
who habitually use the word "nigger," but
in English literature and speech it seems uni
versal. Froude employs it through all his
books of travel, and even so graceful a
writer as the late Mrs. Ewing uses it in her
pretty stories. She also bos the very offen
sive word "stinking," and one finds and hears
It everywhere. "As a rule," writes James
Payn from London, in The New York Inde
pendent, "I hate people that stink of
money." So, in society, Americans are
constantly placed in the absurd position of
being locturol for want of refined perception"
by writers whose language and manners
ofTv'ud us at every step.
Tbe highest, the most gifted, tire not free
from this offeusiveuess of language. When
I heard tho most eminent of English poets
say of some bad verso that it was "rot," at a
time when that odious Anglicism had not
yet crossed the Atlantic, it seemed to my
startled imagination as if the Venus of Milo
had opened her marble lips and had begun
to curse and swear. The trouble is that such
phrnsesreach us also very rapidly, and take
root among us like other weeds. So doubt
America furnishes some slang to England
also, and wo often go to London to hear it
for the first time from cultivated lips. But
it mutt be remembered that pugilists and
circus riders are not here to bo found so f re
qucntiy in fastidious circles, and thus our
opportunities of picking up their flowers of
i peech are more limited than in London.
