(Continued on Page 8) THE CHAUTAUQUA. x A University Brought to Our Door Uplifting Addresses Inspiring Music Splendid Entertain ments Should Arrange for 1915 Chautauqua. The Monroe Cif Chautauqua was opened Sunday afternoon. Supt. E. M Sipple being the platform mana-! ger and he is a splendid man for j this position. He is a live worker j in any cause - calculated to make humanity better, This is the aim and object of the Chautauqua and nobly, right nobly, does it fill its mission. In fact the Chautauqua is bringing a University to those of us who are unable to go to the University. We are all better be cause of the fact that the great ad dresses have been made in Monroe City, even though perhaps some of us did not hear them, yet they do good to all the people by creating a better condition. The inspiring mu sic and the clean entertainments all make us better. We have seen many Chautauqua programs and have carefully com pared them with the Monroe pro gram and take great pride in saying that all in all we have the best. It is true some have on one day of the session a stronger program than ours, but in ours every day is a big day. Splendid talent has been se cured for each and every day. All classes of uplifting influences have been provided. The" Committee which made the selection deserve the thanks of all the people for the splendid program. What, you have not been attend ing the Chautauqua? Then you have sustained a great loss, and for your own good should see to it that from this time on you will be a faithful attendant. Get the Chau tauqua spirit. It will do you good. Those who have been with us are: The Regimental Quartet in prel ude, Sunday afternoon and evening and Monday evening and in full concert Monday afternoon. This quartet is composed of Ralph S. l'homas, 1st tenor and reader; Harry Clifford, 2nd tenor; Clarence Risser. 1st Jbase; Arnold Lovejoy. 2nd base. These are all splendid young men and give entertainments which please. Dr. J. S. Montgomery delivered the address Sunday afternoon and it was an inspiring message. His subject was ' One Sided People" and as an orator he has few superiors, his message was entertaining, elo quent, inspiring. Miss Georgene Faulkner, the Story Lady, was with us Sunday evening and words and space will not per mit saying what should be said of this splendid number. In a few words it was a grand success and will be helpful for years to come. Everett Kemp, the Interpreter, was on the program for Monday eveuing and while we had heard many good words regarding Mr. Kemp, the half had not been told. His interpretation of "That Printer of .Udells" was an inspiration to greater things. And by the way what are Monroe City people doing along prodigal lines for those who are down? We could and we should do more. Why not? Our own Symphony Orchestra gave a full concert Tuesday after noon and preludes Tuesday evening Wednesday afternoon and evenind. ,Thhi8hi3 ff or which all our citizensj.are greatly ( ' proud. This music is of high class und srientifieallv rendered. When I you have heard them once want to hear themjagain. you. Dean Sumner oflChicago, a man of great prominenceJin Socialogical and Philanthropic movements, de lighted the audience Tuesday even- n8 and lett with those who heard him some great things to think about. These will all do good, The Democrat goes to Jpress too early to say anything 'regarding the address of Fr. Fleming, but he entries to us as being one of the great men on the platform. The program for the remainder of the Chautauqua is indeed strong and will be interesting and enter taining. It is as follows: Thursday. 2:30 The Hussars (composed of 9 persons.) 3:00 Allan A. Tanner. 7:30 The Hussars. Friday. 2:30 The Hussars. 3:00 Lectures, to be supplied. 7:30 The Hussars. Saturday. 2:30 Maue'r Sisters. 3:00 Henry A.

The beautifying of the Burlington right of way goes right on. Yates & Hagan parked the land just south of their store. Wilson and Schweer have make quite an improvement just north of the Citizen's Bank. The disease of making a more beau tiful right of way is spreading rap idly. The railroad officials have been inoculated and will do their part. Let the good work go on. Former Illinoians. Former citizens of Illinois and their families residing in this vicin ity are going to have a reunion at the Fair grounds, Thursday, Sept. 10. A good time is anticiipated and all eligible are urged to be there with well "filled baskets. Pope Pius X Dead.

What is perhaps the greatest bat tle in the world's history has been in progress during the past week between Germany and Austria on one side and England, France, Bel- gium and Russia on the other. It is impossible to give any estimate of the loss of lives, but it is said that all great battles of the past are small when compared with this. The German armies are victorious and ere long the German soldiers may be in the streets of Paris. On the other side of Germany is Russia with an army of eight million men Japan has declared war on Germany and Austria. Italy appears to be on the verge of joining Germany and Austria. Turkey and the 175 million Mohammedens may yet get into the - i - i i r - . war. under rresiaent wuson me United States is remaining strictly neutral. Our country has much to be thankful for in that we have Wilson for President. It looks like the war may continue for two or perhaps more years. In that time many complications may arise and it is impossible to even make a guess with any degree of accuracy as to the probable result. D. E. Yowell and daughters, Miss Verna and Mrs. George Hicks were called to Mt. Sterling, III., by the death Mrs. Yowell's mother, Mrs. Mary Rigg. Mrs. Yowell has been with her mother the past ten days.
