IN GALA ATTIRE.
Unique Plans for Decorating This City Chautauqua Week. This city is surely to be in gala attire Chautauqua Weds, according to plans now being perfected at the Redpath Chautauqua headquarters in Chicago. Last year in all places where Redpath Chaut&uquas were held nine peunant streamers spanned the business streets. This year the number will be increased to fifteen and in addition the streamers are much larger than heretofore. Three hundred small banners for use on awoings and the like are also being sent to each city. There will be a general supply of cloth pennants for the autos. In many towns these will be used first in an automobile "booster" trip around the county. A neat and unique pennant printed on good paper in blue and orange col ors and bearing the words: "This borne believes in the Redpath Chautauqua," will be furnished for the windows of the homes ten days in advance of the com ing of the Chautauqua. The pennant measures two feet in lecglh and is ten inches wide at the top. In the fore ground is a typical Chautauqua tent, filled with people. The number of pennants will be lim ited to 500 in each town. This pen nant is very appropriate inasmuch as tlio Chautauqua is an institution which appeals directly to the homes of a com munity, On the opening day1 of the Chautau qua, tags will be hung on the door knobs of each home and also on the harnesses of the horses on the streets.

The story of the drama, which Is the Nisis of the brilliant and Imposing spectacular, illustrates the power of love and the ultimate triumph of virtue over evil. The opening scene is a beautiful pastoral, In which a shepherd youtli with a lambkin in his arms, and leading a flock of sheep, comes Into the sacred grove and prostrates himself before a statue of Aphrodite, the goddess of Love, imploring her to bestow upon him a bride. - 1 A spell comes over him and he falls asleep. He is surrounded by dancing wood nymphs, one of whom kisses him. He awakes and claims her as his bride. But before the rejoicing company can depart, the goddess Athene appears and curses the youth and his bride for failing to do her proper honor. Demons rush out of the forest and after a conflict overpower and bind the youth and carry his bride away to the underworld. The shepherd succeeds in freeing himself from his bonds and appeals to the statue, which suddenly be comes a living beauty.
