The Chautauqua of 1911 presents seven weeks of enter-
tainment, music and instruction. For twenty-six years
this institution has maintained an annual program unsure

Northwest. The list of talent; is built aIlong the lines of
true chautauqua work< as outlined by the great mot~her-
Chautauqua of New York. TIhe pr-ogram includes
recognized leaders of the Amnerican platform, those who
hanve exerted a force in the thought and life of the nation
and moulded the opinions and laws which are today govern-
ing our country. It invites the best in the lecture platform

















The New Auditorium

the best of music, both of a classical and a popular nature,.
the best in entertainment, from the concerts of classical
opera to the skilled sleight;-of-hand of the magician, realizing
therchy the great chautauqua idea of reaching through
popular methods all classes and by instilling in the mind.
the desire for the best in each line, elevating, as well as.
entertaining, the audiences.
The new auditorium, the largest in the Southland, has a
capacity of four thousand people, and on the special
excursion days this structure is crowded to overflowing.
The detailed program contains stirring lectures on~

Accessibility As De Funiak Springs is situated on the
Pensacola and Atlantic Division of the
'Louisville & Nashville, midway between Jacksonville and
New Orleans, one hundred and thirty miles southeast of
Thiomasville, visitors journeying southward from Chicago,
Cincinnati, St. Louis and the West, find this spot the most
easy of access of all the Florida Resorts, and year by year
make this the point of destination to the homes of hospita-
ble friends, cheery hotels and pleasant cottages. Travel-
ers who go early in the season to the tropical part of the
State do wisely to turn aside at Jacksonville and visit De
Funiak Springs on their homeward journey, not only to
attend its Chautauqua, but also to enjoy its invigorating
air.


Our~ LakeS There are many lakes of rare beauty near De
Puniak where those fond of the water can
row and fish to their heart's content. The nearest are the

the highest altitude by United States Coast survey in
Florida. It is twenty miles from the Gulf of Mexico,
whose breezes come tempered with sweetness and laden
with health through miles of primeval pines. The mar-
velous lake in the heart of the town perfectly round and
one mile in circumference, is a dream of beauty. Visitors
from all parts of the world pronounce it one of the marked
features of our continent, and one of the world's wonders,
for nowhere else between the Atlantic and Pacific, or indeed
in any part of the globe, has this gem of a lake an equal in
symmetry and ideal perfection. The high, rolling lands by
which it is entirely surrounded, gradually sloping toward
the silvery beach, form a frame-like margin to the lovely
picture, while fine residences amid delightful environments
can be seen through the openings for miles in every direc-
tion. The scenery justifies the title of the "Adirondacks
of Western Florida," and De Funiak has been appropriately

Stanley Lakes, about three miles in circumference, which
can be seen from the car window on approaching De
Funiak from the west. On their shores, under the stately
pines, can be found ideal picnic grounds. There is a good
Shady drive around them, affording enchanting views.
Lake Cassidy, about nine miles distant, has an area of over
two square miles, the home of the trout, the bass and the
bream. There are also good livery facilities to the Gulf-
side -and other points where hunting and fishing are found.


.Alpine Park Adjoining the Chautauqua Park and Lake,
is a delightful resting-place where the lover
of nature can walk among stately pines, bask in the sun-
shineand hear the sweet music of song-birds mingle with
the cadence of falling waters. Here is Alpine .Spring, the
crystal water of which is caught in a "Jacob's Well" of
sparkling granite.

Live oaks and water oaks are on every hand, while holly
bushes hold up their scarlet berries and nod invitingly to
the passerby. No other place offers such advantages to

Excursion tickets are sold over all prom-
ApproacheS inent railroads from.New York, Chicago,
St. Louis, Cincinnati, Philadelphia, Washington, Pittsburg,
and various places in the East and West. Special Round
Trips are issued from points on the Louisville & Nashville
Railroad during the Assembly. While -the Chautauqua
is in session, no winter trip presents so large a return for the
outlay. In one day the snow banks north of the Ohio
become merely a memory amid the sunny dreams of the
Southland.

The Hotel Chautauqua, a large and
AcconunodationS admirably kept hotel is fitted with
modern conveniences, and furnishes every possible comfort
to its guests. Several smaller hotels also present reason-
able rates to tourists, and there are matiy cottages with
comfortable accommodations. Delightful families from
the North have for years made De Puniak their winter
home. People from Iowa, Wisconsin, Dakota, Illinois,
Ohio, Indiana, Minnesota, New York, and many other
states, make happy all visitors by cordial hospitality.


The Excursions which take place on Satur-

grams are especially interesting and attractive, and the
large auditorium on the lakeside eis Talway crowded t s

out-of-door life. The lake affords excellent opportunity
for rowing and sailing. A superb orchestra furmishes

announces the re-engagement of Meddie O. Hamilton,-

the Chautauqua to have one of the popular concert
companies or male quartets on the Saturdays, as these are

The growing pqpulatity of moving pictures and illustrat-
ed lectures has caused many of the popular lecturers to
illustrate their travelogues, ~and it is with pleasure that the
Chautauqua Association announces Erwin Leslie Gordon
of Pennsylvania with his two splendid lectures on "Moroc-
co" and "Moorish Spain." Mr. Gordon is not only an
entertaining lecturer, but .a recognized authority 'on this
subject. Professor Wh~eeler's picture, illustrated by
stereopt~iccn slides and about 5,000 feet of moving pictures
on "'The Romance of the Reaper,"' is also one of the inter-
esting features of the Chautauqua. He deals with the
development of the steam engine from the primitive stage
coach and the early steamboat of Robert Fulton down to
the fast Pullman trains and palatial trans-Atlantic steam-
ers of the present day. Special emphasis in this lecture is
laid upon the development of machinery as applied to
cultivation of crops from the rude hand-plows to the pre-
sent day reaper, binder, and thresher, com aring how the
large farms in the great Northwest were run in' the past by
horses and now by the great power of steam and gas
engines. This will be one of the most interesting features
of the Chautauqua. J. R. Mason brings two splendid

tion to have as many of the farmers of Western Florida,
and especially of Walton County, present at this time.
In an endeavor to reach-the farmers of Walton County so
that they may gain the benefit of these practical talks by
practical men, and realizing as the Directors of the Chau-
tauqua Association have done the importance of building
the agricultural interest through the united efforts of the
farmers and the traders, the Chautauqua Association will
be glad to send a complimentary ticket to the farmers of
Western Florida admitting, free of charge, to each and all
of these lectures presented by Professor Rolfs, A .P. Spen-
cer, C. K. Mcauarrie, A. S. Meharg, C. E. Pleas and others.
There will be much of interest for the women. Mrs. L. W.

and the Farm Home," and there will be a demonstration
in farm cooking by Miss Margaret McCarty, Director of

desire of the Chautauqua to make these schools, dealing
with subjects of a practical nature along up-to-date lines,
permanent in character, and a. large enthusiastic attend-
ance on the part of the people of West Florida would do
much to make this an established feature of the Chautau-

people. Rev. Clarence Russell Williams will conclude
the Bible work, carrying the students through I and II
