The Chautauqua pioneere sowed the first seeds thirty-six years ,ago on the banks of Lake Chautauqua, New York. As history tells the story, they were gathered together to discuss the problems of a better Biiu.-iiiure progressive ouuuoy i ' i : o ,!.. scnooi. wnere mere is niemere is growth.

Howey, of Kirksville and all these years have been good years. Every fellow measures up the pro gram according to his own tastes and needs and therewith pro nounces judgment. It is therefore difficult to tell which has been the best. It is a great satisfaction to know that all" has been good. The third annual Chautauqua of Monroe City opened Sunday after noon with a splendid crowd. More than four hundred season tickets were sold in advance and never be fore has there been such a Chautau qua spirit in Monroe City. The Royal Hungarian Orchestra came Sunday and remained until Tues day evening and they pleased every body. You hear it said by every one, "The best music ever hear 1 inA Monroe." Each member of this splendid Orchestra are musicians, and play a class of music that fills the need of the Chautauqua a character of music that is whole some for religious and moral en tertainments. On every hand we hear, "You must have the Hungari an Orchestra next year." Sunday afternoon Col. G. A. Gear hart gave his masterful lecture. "Footprints of the Centuries." snd for almost two hours held his large audience completely spellbound. One of our best business men said of Gearhart and his lectures, "He is without doubt the best Chautauqua attraction We have ever had." Monday afternoon he again delight ed a large audience with a great lecture, "The Coming Man." That lecture alone was worth double the price of a season ticket. Col. Gear hart is not only a classical orator, but a cultured christian gentleman. We do not exaggerate when we rm V -v- 'EYrf nrintc rf tVia Pont 11. ries" and "The Comiug Man" were two of the finest lectures ever giv- j en in Monroe City. Every man - was better for having heard them and the splendid matter they con tained will abide forever in the hearts of the hearers and will start therein impulses for all that is high and noble in life. Sunday evening Glenn Frank gave a splendid lecture on "Coach ing from the Side Line." Mr. Frank has a pleasing personality, a grace ful flow of language, and a mes ' sae that inspired and uplifted. He is also a platform manager and will give two more lectures. Mon day and Tuesday evening's !Fred Held delighted the audience with moving pictures. Tuesday after noon Dr. Thos. E. Green gave his great lecture "The Truth About Japan." Dr. Green is a great lect urer and delighted the great audi ence that listened to him with such rapt attention. He is a master of the platform and possesses in a rare degree the ability to instruct and entertain. So far the program has measuri ed up to the best possible standard. Wednesday the Morphet's.
