The plan provides for a pro gram of lectures, concerns and en tertainments to extend over t. per iod of five. days with sessions held both afternoon and evenings in a large auditorium tenit, and the speakers and artists will include a whole galaxy )f celebrities of wide reputation throughout the Chautauqua world. In order to have such an array of talent appear on the same plat form in this city forty or fifty citizens have assumed the obliga tion of selling 500 season tickets at $2.00 each. These tickets are good for the entire five days' pro gram and bring the cost of the en tertainment within the reach of everybody. Everything about the Chautau qua is of a high class character. It is under the direct management of the largest Chautauqua organ ization in the world. This organi zation maintains offices in New York, Indianapolis, Pittsburg and Atlanta and has under is con trol more than 500 summer assem hlies extending throughout the east and middle west and inclu ding also Virginia and West Vir ginia. Their Chautauquas are held in many of the oldest and best known towns and cities of the ter ritory covered, one of them being located in the same county as the old "Mother Chautauqua" at Chautauqua Lake, where the movement had its beginning forty years ago. The Chautauqua management will supply the local committee with a complete line of advertis ing material, including souvenir .' program booklets and special ad vertising features to be distribu tedin this and nearby towns in the period of four weeks before the opening , date. Also advertise mentswill be run in the newspa pers. ' ' r . ; ' - ; . ' In addition, they will send here an advance advertising man for a watch for it. First Grade.

Mr. Allsbrook 's oldest son is 75 years of age, his next 72 years of age, andstwo others, the youngest being over 65 years, all of them good and consistent democrats, Three of these sons, together with their father served through the civil, war in the confederate army, representing their town ship and state with distinction.
