The boy in the butcher's shop happened to answer the tele phone, and promptly responded "Well, you just bet your sweet life I will." "Do you know, sir, to whom you are speaking?'' indignantly in quired Mrs. Brown. "Sure I do," said the bov. "You're my, Mrs. Brown's cook." "You are mistaken, young man.

"I have always hoped that he would jttiarry Hallie Lane," sighed Tom's imother. I do wish she liadn't gone away to Europe." "Well." Tom's father spoke up fierce ly, "he shan't marry that Goodrich girl as long as I can prevent it." "You know, dear, Interfering with a love affair is dangerous," cautioned Tom's mother. "Any objections of ours are liable to increase his ardor. We must be careful." "How can he have any ardor for that ancient charmer? I don't see. I'll bet she's nearly twice his age." "What can we do?" Tom's mother looked helpless as she asked the ques tion. "We can pack him off to California to visit his Aunt Laura. She knows that he's out of college this winter on account of the trouble with his eyes and she'll be glad of a visit from him." When the trip to California was broached to Tom he said he would rather have the money It would cost. "I want to get ahead a bit, dad," he explained. "You won't get ahead very fast ta king old maids to the grand opera every few nights." "If you mean Miss Goodrich—" "That was just father's little joke, Tom," hastily interrupted Tom's moth er. "You know, son, that we think two or three months on your Aunt Laura's ranch would be just the thing for you. We want you to stay out doors all the time and give your eyes a complete rest. Don't you think you'd enjoy the life out there?" "Why, I suppose I'd enjoy It, all right, but It will cost a lot of money, going out there." "Well, I think I can scrape enough together to get you out and back," said his father. "That economical streak of Tom's was a little too sudden to be really credible," Tom's father said to Tom's mother a little later. "It's just an ex cuse not to leave that Goodrich girl, but It won't go with me. He's starting for the coast tomorrow night. That's decided." Tom had been gone just a month, when a letter from his Aunt Laura brought consternation to Tom's pa rents. After a little preamble, In which she declared her fondness for Tom and as serted that she greatly enjoyed having him with her, she begged them to re call him at once. "He appears to be simply Infatuated with a gay widow who is staying at the hotel near my ranch," she wrote. "I feel certain that she is a designing woman and that she lias made up her mind to marry Tom. He won't listen to anything I say against her and when I mentioned that I was certain she was old enough to be his mother, he remarked bitterly that age seemed to be considered a crime in our family. I don't know what he meant. Rut I do know that it would be most unfortunate for him to become entangled with this dash ing Mrs. Gaynor. I advise you to send for him immediately. You needn't have urged me to keep Tom from reading or studying. He hasn't opened a book since he's been here. He and Mrs. Gaynor ride horseback near ly all day long. The flowers In my garden aren't good enough for her, and he orders hothouse roses from the city twice a week and the quantity of candy that he buys for her Is pro digious." "Well, what do you know about that?" asked Tom's father, aghast. "It looks very much as if we had snatched Tom out of the frying pan and dropped him into the fire, doesn't it? Now we must bring him back to the frying pan, eh?" "Probably this designing widow has quite banished the thought of Miss Goodrich," said Tom's mother. "So there may be some comfort In the situ ation." "It's amazing what an unmitigated fool a hoy can be," growled Tom's father, as he began to write a tele gram. "I don't see why you sent me such a hurry call," Tom remarked to his father on the day of his arrival home. "But I'm glad you did send for me. My eyes are better now and I'm tired of loafing. Can't you take me Into your office, dad? I don't want to go back to college. I want to get to work and begin to earn money." "Why?" asked Tom's father, with laconic severity. "Well, I think I ought to tell you, [though It's a secret. Still, Lucie Good rich and Mrs. Gaynor both guessed It, and I think you and mother really ought to know. I want to go to work for Hallie Lane. The fact Is, we be came engaged before she went to Eu rope." "You did, did you?" exploded Tom'» father. "I hope you won't be angry. We kept It a secret because we thought you and all her people would say we were too young. But we are engaged, all right." "Well, I'm glad of It," said Tom's father, "but you've had a funny way of showing It!" Those Colored Thinge.

FINELY GOWNED ORCHESTRA Imperial Lady Musicians Excellent En tertainers—Noted Lecturers Engaged, Including Hon. Harry Phillips, Dr. John Merritte Driver, Dr. Frederick Kenyen Brown and Dr. Sigel Roush. The program for our Chautauqua has boon announced, and It surely looks good. Thv White & Myers peo ple will come in with their great line of lecturers, musical organizations and entertainers, who appear not only up to the high standards of past years, but considerably above it. Imperial Ladies' Orchestra. One of the big musical features will be the Imperial Ladies' Orchestra, con sisting of a large company, handsomely gowned professional lady musicians who have been entertaining at the homes of the millionaires at their big social functions in the great cities. They will be on our Chautauqua pro gram for two grand concerts. Of course we are expecting great things of this magnificent organization. Joseph Ivonecny and Company will also be on the program. Konecuy is the celebrated Bohemian violinist now touring this country. He is the pupil of Professor Sevcik (teacher of Jan Kubelik) of the Vienna Imperial Con servatory. For sheer brilliancy his work Is not excelled in America. His work is characterized above all by that liery temperament which is so predom inating a trait of the Slavic race. Ivo necny is a cultured, refined gentleman of magnetic personality and high char acter. lie will be ably supported by a competent company. Great Mixed Quartet. Then there is Mme. Morreall's Quar tet. of New York city, one of the choicest mixed quartets in America, with a specially prepared program for the summer Chautauqua. Marian Chase Schneifel*, the great reader and vocalist, with her accom panist, will probably be the greatest single entertainment attraction offered at our Chautauqua. Her recent big .successes in Chicago and vicinity give promise of the treat that is In store for us. The White & Myers people an paying her more money than they have ever paid any single artist of her character in the past. The Kastern Artists' Company, an other group of musicians and enter tainers, some of whom have worked abroad, will furnish a substantial fea ture of the musical program. Sarah Ituth Bates and Her Girls, known all over the central states as one of the best concert companies that have ever been oil the Lyceum and Chautauqua, will he another highly acceptable feature of the program. Tills company has seen years of serv ice, and its quality Is standard, and Miss Bates is the most delightful of readers. Noted Lecturers Engaged. But our Chautauqua Is not to be all music. We are to have many noted lecturers. Hon. Harry Phillips, former mayor of West ham borough, city of London, is one of England's most bril liant and popular speakers on social and industrial questions. His social work in the slum districts of London has given him a fund of knowledge from which to draw in his lectures. He is a municipal and social expert, and, although he has been in tills country but a few months, he has al ready scored pronounced successes In more than a hundred lecture engage ments in our largest cities. Mr. Phil lips' "message!" is timely and of ab sorbing interest. Dr. John Merritte Driver, famous author and pastor of the People's church of Chicago, the popular suc cessor of David Swing, is a renowned world traveler, and second to no man from the standpoint of masterful abil ity as a lecturer. "His eloquence re vives the traditions of ancient ora tory." —l "AI Priddy." Then there is Dr. Frederick KenyotI Brown ("Al Priddy"), author, socio logical authority and experienced lec turer. He is in the same class with Dr. Steiner, Dr. Thomas E. Green and Frank Gtinsaulus. Dr. Brown is the author of a number of well known books, prominent among which are "Through the Mill" and "Through the School." Dr. Sigel Roush, noted traveler, jour nalist and lecturer, In one of his best Travelogues will add variety to the program. His is an illustrated lec ture of rare beauty. "Stoddard up to date," is the way a recognized critic puts it, and indeed the similarity be tween the two lecturers in many par ticulars is very striking. His pictures are superb and his lecture a work of art An hour and a half under a Chautauqua tent at night with one of Dr. Roush's travelogues will be one of the best and most profitable sessions of the Chautauqua. Dr. Kerr Boyce Tupper of Philadel phia, pastor of one of the greatest churches in America and recognized as a pulpit orator second to -none that America and England have yet pro Ks V, duced, will be Included among the great lecturers. His utterances are polished and luminous, his thought vigorous, his philosophy wholesome and his bearing that of an intellectual king. Dr. Tupper this summer for the tirst time will take a whole season ot Chautauqua work. He feels that it gives him a large sphere in which to work and that his message will be heard to advantage by tens of thou sands of people who attend ChautaU* Ullas. I)r. Tupper was the one man selected by the citizens of Philadel phia to deliver the appreciation ad dress at the great memorial service In honor of .William McKinley, our mar tyred president. Hon. John T. Barker, the brilliant young attorney general of Missouri, la also to he on our program. Mr. Barker has been very much in the limelight of late in connection with the big rail road rate cases tried in the United States district courts. Everybody in the west knows how ably he repre sented the cause of the people and won out through sheer daring and ability. Attorney General Barker be lieves that the federal government through its judiciary is constantly en croaching on the rights of the people and their state governments, and What he will have to say in this connection at the Chautauqua will be of absorb ing interest. Mr. Barker is a strong and forceful speaker and one ot the coming men of the west. Kachel to Enact Plays. One of the entertainment features of the program will be the delightful lit erary treat on the occasion of the ap pearance ot Arthur Kachel. Mr. Ka chel is an enactor of plays. He takes a great play like "The Music Master" or "The Melting Pot" and makes It live and glow through his personality on the Chautauqua platform. Mr. Kachel Is gifted with a great voice and splen did imagination. He is a true artist because he has been wisely and thor oughly trained as a graduate and mem ber of the faculty of the celebrated Leland T. Powers School of Boston. Mr. Rachel's "Music Master" is one of the finest things in Lyceum and Chau tauqua circles. Some program. Isn't it? Great mu sicians and singers and entertainers and lecturers, among them the best In the United States. We have not said anything about one of the very biggest features of the Chautauqua yet—the Children's Chau tauqua. There will be special sessions for the little folk under the direction of a Junior Supervisor, who will be a charming young lady professionally trained In playground work and story telling and all the little Interests that lie nearest a child's heart. The little folk will have their own good times oflf to themselves with a carefully pre pared program. The White & Myers people say they would no more think of being without the Children's Chau tauqua tlnyi they would think of being without lecturers." The season tickets arc already on sale, and it looks as if our ehwitauqua will be a big success! THE MAN WITH A MESSAGE. Kerr Boyce Tupper to Deliver Inspira tional Lecture at Chautauqua. Famous for a decade and a half both In America and England as a brilliant and eloquent pulpit orator of first rank and an author whose works have had wide circulation, Dr. Kerr Boyce Tup per comes to the Chautauquas this year with a message of optimism and good cheer.

KERR BOYCE TUPPER. that thinking men are found always In unusual numbers when he preaches or lectures. He is on this Chautauqua program because every Chautauqua must have a lecturer who can bring before its au diences an optimistic and uplifting philosophy of life.

Dr. Tupper is a man of the highest type of refinement and culture. He Is a student of wide research and accu rate scholarship, an orator with a re markable blending of grace and strength and with a phenomenal mem ory and a magnificent voice. During the years of his career as a public man the great daily papers in the cit ies of the north and east have poured out their tributes to him. His presence at the Chautauqua will make good In a sense that Is, indeed, true his ofltime characterisation as "The Man With a Message." jf.
