On Saturday, July 5th, the Willmar Chautauqua begins, to continue for
eight days. On page two of this issue will be found a brief outline of the
program, which is by far the best that has ever been offered here. There is
a pleasing variety of the best things available on the American lyceum
There will be a different musical organization every day, of such talent
only as have made good before the most critical audiences in the country.
No lover of good music can afford to miss one of them.
The lecturers are intellectual giants whose messages are given with the
gripping interest of true oratory. Most of the lectures occur in the after
noons, the exceptions being Capt. Hobson and Dr. Hunsberger, who speak
on the great subject of United States supremacy as a nation, from their
two view points.
Every evening, there will be an entirely different kind of an entertain
ment, by talent which ranks with the best in the land.
Here is the opportunity for the people of Willmar and Kandiyohi Coun
ty to get the best that is going in wholesome entertainment. There is only
one way to cultivate a taste for better things, and that is to patronize them
when they come around.
Expressing regrets that similar entertainments in the past have not
been properly attended comes with bad grace from anyone who hesitates to
provide himself and family with season tickets.
The season of 1913 will be a tremendous success, if the people of Will
mar and county would simply come forward and do their duty in the mat
ter of buying season tickets.
If three hundred families would provide themselves with two or more
season tickets, the whole matter of finances would be solved and the ses
sions would all be well attended.
There are mighty few families in the community where two or more
tickets would not be used to good advantage at every session.
Here are a few reasons why you should buy season tickets:
It will be an incentive to you and members of your family to attend
the sessions and get the benefit of the program.
It will give you sixteen first class entertainments worth from 50 cents
$2.00 a number, for less than 16 cents each.
Your action will stimulate others to do likewise.
It will insure the financial success of the Chautauqua which will insure
its permanency as an asset to the community.
It will put heart into those who are willing to spend time and effort to
do something worth while for Willmar.
It will show that you are alive to the best interests of your communityJ
It will help cultivate a taste for a better class of entertainment.
It will be a "boost" and not a "knock." ~&^ &
A ticket for a child from 7 to 14 years of age, for $1.00, will amount to
little more than 6 cents for each session. Can you afford to have a single
one of your children miss the inspiration for better things that must come
to it in hearing the messages of men of nation-wide reputation, or miss
the opportunity to learn to discriminate between the low and vulgar and the
cultured and refined in entertainment? Can you spend a dollar to better

O remember the old fashioned 4th of July, when the old veter

Another of President Wilson's characteristic messages to Congress is
printed on page 3. People generally including those formally affiliated with
opposition parties are beginning to give President Wilson credit, not only
for high minded patriotism, but also for constructive statesmanship of a
high order. David Gibson, editor of Bank Notes Magazine, is authority for
the statement that President Wilson last week averted a terrible panic
planned by Wall street by stating thru Secretary of the Treasury McAdoo
that the Government was prepared to furnish to country banks, if emer
gency required, $500,000,000 on proper security. Thank God that the coun
try has an administration that is not to be frightened by the threats of the
stock-gamblers of Wall Street!

The canvass for season tickets has begun and has a good start. When
our next issue is printed, we hope to be able to report that the people of
our community have awakened to take the broad and proper view of this
public enterprise, and that they have responded in a manner that will in
sure that the 1913 Chautauqua will be a grand success.
Actions speak louder than words, and the inclination to procrastinate
in doing things is the greatest bane to public enterprises as well as private
business. Do it now!
