NO. 9) CRESCO, HOWARD COUNTY, IOWA, FRIDAY, JULY 0. 1909 CHAUTAUQUA WELL ATTENDED Lectures and Entertainments Fully Up to Standard. While some of our neighboring towns have been complaining of the attract ions, lectures and general arrangements furnished by the Redpath-Vauter Chautauqua System, Cresco has but very little to complain about. With the exception of a little delay in rais ing the tent for the opening session and a lack of enugh seats the two first days the arrangements have been quite satisfactory. Opinion seems to be somewhat divided as to the quality of entertainment furnished compared with that of a year ago, but we believe that some of the best attractions are yet to come, and criticism should be withheld until the event is ended. It is impos sible to have everything suit, for what makes a hit in some communities falls flat in others. We believe that the general average will be fully up to the standard of last year. We were unable to attend the open ing session, but from all reports Dr. Cadman's lecture on "Abraham Lin coln" met with great favor. His coming this year was looked forward to with much interest by the friends he made here last year, and his lecture Monday added to his popularity. We confess to some disapointment in the entertainment furnished by Sarah Wathena Brown and the Chicago Boy choir. Solo harpists generally get above variations on the old staindby tunes, and the boys had very ordinary voices, sang together badly at timeB and were at their best in their last selection. Rev. Alien A. Tanner on Tuesday de livered a fine lecture entitled "The Man in Overalls," in which he present ed a powerful plea in defense of "The Man in Overalls." He is no extremist, but from the standpoint of the labor ing man and woman he sees reasons and excuses for the various sins of commission and omission with which they are charged. Mr. Tanner did not assail the employers of labor but urged at their hands more recognition of the abilities and services of their employ ers and a greater respect for them as men and women. On Tuesday evening, the Common wealth male quartette gave a highly enjoyable concert. The members of the quartette all possess good voices and their solo and quartette work was all of a high order of merit. Follow ing the concert, Congressman Landis was introduced, but before he got down to business, his audience com menced to melt away. His voice and presence were not calculated to hold a crowd with a lecture of commonplaces and it was generally understood that his lecture was a plea for a ship sub sidy and a sort of a stand-pat tariff address entirely out of harmony with the progressive spirit which dominates the Chautauqua movement everywhere. Wednesday the town was full of people to see and hear Wm. J. Bryan. The big Chautauqua tent seats 2,000 persons and every seat was taken and many were compelled to stand through out his address. Mr. Bryan was met at the depot with an enthusiastic crowd who had secured the presence of the band for the occasion, and after a short rest at the hotel proceeded to the Chautauqua grounds, where he was in troduced by Rev. Gammons. After asking for a similar audience to meet Gov. Shellenberger, another Nebras who will be here Sunday he launched into his address. "The Prince of Peace" which is at once a plea for religion, a defense of it—if it can be said it needs any—and a showing of its need by the human race. Mr. Bryan's delivery is so fine and his words so simple and convincing that the time occupied in its delivery passed so rap idly that it hardly seemed possible that about one and one-half hours had pass ed. Following the lecture, Mr. Bryan was taken to Austin on a special to de liver an address there in the evening. On Wednesday evening the Cole Steele Entertainers pleased a large audience. Mr. Steele has a finely cul tivated bass voice and his selections take a wide range from humorous to grave and from popular to classical, The reader, Mrs. Cole-Steele, made an instantaneous hit with the audience in the afternoon and in the evening her every number met with hearty ap plause. She was equally good in every reading and in one would hold her hear ers tense with emotion and in the next would keep them in continuous laugh ter with an humorous selection. Canada Lands. The best proposition in Canada to day is the 480 acre farms to actual set tlers for $3,000, $1,000 down, balance on eight year's time at 6 per cent, and no taxes for three years. Railroad now under construction will reach there this fall. In three years these farms should be worth $20.00 per acre. See us about it. Luers Land Agency, Cresco, Iowa. Elwin 11.

The town has been over-run with land seekers the past week. —Riceville Recorder. That Mr. Bryan has lost none of his former popularity is noticable from the crowds which meet him everywhere. He was the least advertised of any lec turer on the program, and almost the mere announcement cf his coming drew a multitude to town. The 1:16 train from the east had three extra cars at tached to accomodate the crowd and every train from the west was loaded. Geo. Richards took a bad fall just about noon yesterday. He was at work on a telephone pole near T. J. Lomas' residence, when a pin holding him on a cross-arm came out and let him fall to the ground, As he started to fall he was bending backward, but in some manner he righted himself and struck the ground on his feet. Dr. Daly was called and says that one or more bones in one foot are fractured and that he has considerable pain in his back but does not think that the injury is serious. Old Winneshiek" an old cannon brought to Decorah in 1858, burst while being fired last Monday morning. After a recital of its historical features, the Decorah Republican says: "It was some time after the war that Alex. Meadows was so severely injured while firing it that he lost one of his arms. Regardless of this incident the cannon continued to be used, and each time it was expected some one would be killed. Fortune favored the large large ma jority, however, and no fatalities were charged up against it." Mr. Meadows will be remembered as a well known resident of Cresco for long time, removing to Minneapolis about 25 years ago.

Though a defeat for the locals the people saw as good a game as is pos sible. Exceptional fielding on both sides made the battle uncertain. Both pitchers did credit to their reputation, but both could not win. The work of Hatch pleased the attendants and all had a boost for the big fellow. The feature of the contest was the fast triple play pulled off by Sanders. Things looked dangerous—men on first and second with no one out. Ellis then lined to Jack who held on and touch ing second he buzzed the sphere to Adams completing a triple play. The The one hand catch of Ellis from Blake's liat is indeed worthy of note. The tally that decided the game came 'n the fourth inning. Blexrud, the first man up, went out via the Hatch Adams route. On Dougherty's error Brokken was safe. Wolested then hit to Sanders who tried to make a double play but on his pass to sccond the hall got by Dougherty and both runners moved up to third base and sscond. Ellis then hit a high one to Isaacs and on the catch Brokken scored. A dispute arose over the failure of the umpire to hold the run ner on third until the ball was caught. Cresco had a grand chance to score in their part of the fourth. Sanders sin gled and was followed by Blake with another single. Then Adams laid down bunt and both men advanced. With men on second and third and tut one man down the chances looked encour aging but Isaacs fanned and the best that Hill had was a slow one to Wol sted who passed to first, ending Cres co's chance.

Had a Japanese descent upon our western coast resulted in such a casual ty list every available soldier in our regular and volunteer armies would be" under orders, ready for the first train to the scene of the conflict. But as the dead and injured are merely vic tims of a misdirected patriotism nobody pays any attention to the grisly record. Human life is our cheapest commodity. Happily, stricter laws now in forced reduced the chapter of accidents of this year somewhat below the terrible record of 1908, but there is still room for improvement.
