For the past two weeks the
writer has been a resident of Chau Chautauqua,
tauqua, Chautauqua, New York. Everybody
has heard of this place. It is loca located
ted located on a silvery lake of that name
in the western part of the Empire
state. This lake is a mile and a
half wide, twenty-seven miles long.
is the highest body of water on the
continent, and is 800 feet above
Lake Frie, three miles away. Like
many of our Florida lakes, it is a
perennial fountain of the purest
and freshest water. Around it are
gently sloping hills. These are
dotted with towns and summer
hotels. The forests are of maple
and are dense enough to afford
complete protection from the sun.
So inviting was the place that
years ago it was used by Metho
dists as a camping ground. Among
them was the man who is usually
regarded as the founder of the
Chautauqua idea Bishop J. H.
Vincent. In 1882, we think, it
began in the interest of the Sun
day school work. From those be beginnings
ginnings beginnings evolved other features.
Now we nave at Chautauqua, the
assembly, proper, the college, the
school of pedagogy, the school of
sacred literature, the school of ex expression,
pression, expression, the school of music, the
school of physical education. And
we might well add an "et cetera" to
these. Instruction in cookery,
type-writing, photography and a
few other things is regularly given.
But what is the quality of the
instruction given? We confess
that we were anxious to know that.
The first reply to the question
would be the naming of the men
and the universities and other
schools from whose faculties the
Chautauqua school selects the best
talent. They are Harper, of Chi Chicago
cago Chicago University; Brown, of Boston
University; Cohn, of Northwestern;
Cook, of Yale; Gould, of Johns
Hopkins; Hoover, of Ohio Uni University;
versity; University; Lewis, of Chicago Uni University;
versity; University; Mace, of Syracuse Univer University;
sity; University; Montgomery, of Allegheny
College; Osborne, Hamlinc Uni
versity; Sherman, University of
Nebra'ska; Waters Wells College;
Miller and Vincent, Chicago Uni University;
versity; University; McClenahan, U. Theo Theological
logical Theological Seminary; Rhees, Newton
Theological Seminary; Weidner,
Augustana Theological Seminary;
Sanders, Yale; Price, Chicago.
Here is an array of teaching
talent second to none in America
Only the best work could be ex expected
pected expected from these specialists.
From actual experience, however,
it has been found ttiat these men
do here during these six weeks as
much worlc as they ordinarily do
at home in six months. Of course
there are good reasons for this.
They are two: First the classes
here are composed largely of teach teachers;
ers; teachers; and secondly, from three to
four hours a day are spent in
actual class-room work on each
subject. Some teachers with
whom we are acquainted ; w6uld
like to have such a chance with
their classes. ;
But not every one who comes to
this delightful place, pursues class classroom
room classroom work. By far the greater
number come here to rest. Scat Scattered
tered Scattered (or huddled) around here in
this forest are more than 500 cot cottages
tages cottages filled with people who come
here to rest, breathe this pure air
and drink the sulphur and chaly chalybeate
beate chalybeate waters. In short, there are
from 5000 to 8000 summer resi residents
dents residents here, and not more than 500
engaged in class-room work. Many
of them belong to what is known
as the C. L. S. C, and come here
annually to take their diplomas.
These literary clubs, which are
located in thousands of cities,
towns and villages, throughout the
country, have auiic the nation a
world of good. They have culti cultivated
vated cultivated the literary spirit. They
have inspired hundreds with a
thirst for education. They have
enkindled a lively public spirit.
They have disseminated much
valuable information and that, too,
of such a kind as to patrioticize
and nationalize our people, not to
speak of the incomparable influ influence
ence influence they have exerted in the way
of moralization and Christianiza
tion, directly and indirectly.
What these thousands do be besides
sides besides bathe in the lake, ride bicy bicycles,
cles, bicycles, row. sail, go on excursions on
the lake steamers, and all such
things, one must come here in
order to understand. Wnat the
assembly furnishes in the way of
lectures and other entertainments
is more than sufficient to keep the
people going. From early morn
ing until ten at night, every hour
is occupied. In the great amphi amphitheater,
theater, amphitheater, the hall or some other au audience
dience audience chamber, some one who
knows more than the rest of us
about his or her particular theme
is constantly telling us, "all about
it." Such men as President J.
Stanley Hall, President, Harper,
Bishop Vincent, Professor Gould,
of Johns Hopkins; Professor Cook,
of Yale; Dr. Boardman, Mr. Ser Ser-viss,
viss, Ser-viss, the astronomer; Mr. Clark,
the interpreter; Bill Nye, the hu humorist,
morist, humorist, and many others are in
constant supply. An ordinary in individual
dividual individual can absorb enough here
in six weeks, from these lecturers,
to make him disagree (or agree)
with his day and generation for
years to come. Of course it is
impossible to believe all you hear.
If we did, bur believing faculty
would rival the chameleon in capa capability
bility capability to change hue and the maw
of the trout in capacity to take in.
But what is said abounds in good.
It is not hard to agree with these
leading lights, usually, nor some sometimes
times sometimes is it difficult to disagree
Shall we try to present a picture
of one of these lectures in the am amphitheater?
phitheater? amphitheater? Seven thousand peo people
ple people are comfortably seated in this
structure, and, at a pinch, one
thousand more can wedge them themselves
selves themselves in, if they consent to occupy
the aisles. The building itself is a
vast curved roof over a deep, wide
pit. It is open oh all sides except
the side back of the rostrum. This
is inclosed for the sake of protect
ing the big pipe organ. All the
seats front the rostrum and are ar arranged

after the manner of the ancient
theaters, those back of the par par-quette

of entertainment is at night, the
roof of the building is blazing with
many-hued electric lamps. And
what, is the quality of the audience?
Not such another ever gathers
elsewhere upon the face ; of the
earth. Of course the summer girl
and the summer boy are herethe
one giggling and the .other show showing
ing showing off. But these are in the small
minority. And one thing pleasant
about it is that they are compelled
to keep quiet. For they are sur surrounded
rounded surrounded by men and women whose
business is to think and teach oth others
ers others how to think. They are the
preachers and educators of
America. We have already named
sonic v of them. We could fill a
column with the same sort of
names and yet the list would be
unexhausted. Here is an intel intellectual
lectual intellectual atmosphere that is un un-equaled.
equaled. un-equaled. Nor does one feel that
he is in the presence of the mere
book worm. For sentiment in
favor of the new education (body,
; mind and spirit alike developed) is
strongly predominant. It is not
an unusual thing to have a man
whose thought is at a premium in
the world of thought seated beside
you clad in an athletic suit. He
has just returned from rowing, a
spin on his bicycle or from the
gymnasium. The glow of health
is in his cheeks and the mark of
the sun upon his bands and face.
Not that these men habitually do
this, but they make the manner of
! their dress no bar to their attend
ance upon the lecture. It they had
time to change their garments,
they should do so, but if not, the
audience kindly overlooks' the
affront. One feels the common
sense of such a judgment, and. is
rejoiced to know that this is the
beginning of a better intellectual
life, one m which the body is cared
for along with the mind and soul.
But we return to the lecture. Ex Exactly
actly Exactly at the published hour, the
great choir, under the leadership
of the famous Dr. Palmer, and ac accompanied
companied accompanied by the piano, pipe or or-e:an
e:an or-e:an and orchestra, sing an anthem.
In that choir are five hundred
trained voices. Imagine the effect!
Then, possibly, some familiar hymn
is sung. Again imagine the effect f
As those seven or eight thousand
people sing, led by such a choir
and such an organ and orchestra,
one is transported. Wave after
wave of ;'' feeling sweeps over an d

gives way completely. Tears suf suffuse

cheeks, unrestrained, because un un-restrainable.
restrainable. un-restrainable. He is awestruclf and
overwhelmed by the volume of
melody, and the thought more than
once occurs that if these few
thousands so thrill him, what shall
be his experience when he shall
first hear the thousands of thous-
ands about "the great white
lb rose" sing the new f ong of
Moses and the Lamb. We have,
indeed, never before heard such
singing as they have at Chautau Chautauqua.
qua. Chautauqua. Any speaker should get in inspiration
spiration inspiration from it. As he advances
to the front of the great rostrum,
the hush and quiet as if after a
great storm prevails. Then is his
opportunity. But many difficul difficulties
ties difficulties confront him. The first, is to
send his voice through and over
this sea of human beings with such
power as to be easily heard. If hes
fails in this, he will at once lose a
few thousands of his would-be
hearers. They scamper away, like
so many sheep, to other pastures.
Again, he must not only be h eard.
He must produce fine thought-
excellent thought, or quite the
same thing will happen, except in
another way. Back seats may not
empty themselves; but from here
and there throughout the audience
smaller and larger streams will
flow,, until only a fe hundred are

The audiences here differ f roro
Athenian audiences in one respect,
if you have something worth say saying,
ing, saying, you may differ with them quite
as much as you please; But you
must have something to say.
During a residence here of two
weeks, we have not seen, among all
these people, any sign of beerv
whisky or other intoxicants. Here
there is ideal prohibition. It makes
us feel what could be done in any
other community, if the good men
would only take hold and show the
whisky men that they mean what
they say. Here also, no mails are
sent nor received on the Sabbath
day, nor are any passengers per permitted
mitted permitted to land. Even the boats
are prohibited the piers.
We may in another letter give a
pen picture of a few of the great
men here. This letter is too long
to do that now.
