The Florida Chautauqua
DE FUNIAK SPRINGS, FLORIDA

The ~Great Winter Chautauqua of the South

Fekbruary 28thi to Apri 7, 1912

The Florida Chautauqua celebrates its twenty-
eighth anniversary by presenting to her patrons and
to the people of West Florida a six weeks' session,
opening February 28th, and closing April 7th, 1912.
It has been the aim of the management to secure
thle best talent available for the coming session, and
the laurels won by each andl all whose names ap-
pear in the detailed list make the program one of
the best ever presented to our patrons. The regular
Saturday excursion rates from West Florida points
that have been so popular in the past, are still in


















The New Auditorium

sand, will come to DeFuniak Springs on .these
special days. The program is rich in male quartets,
Popular lectures by celebrated speakers and states-
men of our land, concerts, spectacular children
plays, .soloists, readers and humorists. The presenit-
ing of Shakespeare's "'Merchant of Venice," and
~ other plays, under the direction of Byron W. King,
of Pittsburgh, marks a new epoch in the life of the
' Chautauqua, and the continuation of the School of
Domestic Science shows growth along the more sub-
i, stantial. lines~ of true educational development.
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
k-ctures on subjects of vital intere~t- to every one,

with the lighter vein of entertainment expressed
by popular male quartets, soloists, readers, imper-
sonators, magicians and humorous lectures.
De Funiak Springs is located on the Louisville and
Nashville Railroad, midway between Tallahassee
and Pensacola. Crowning the crest of the Blue
Ridge, this charming city, three hundred feet above
sea level, marks the highest altitude by United
States Coast survey in Florida. .It is twenty miles
from the Gulf of Mexico, whose breezes come tem-
pered with sweetness and laden with health through
miles of primeval pines. The marvelous 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

pleasure and entertainment.

complete curative for those suffering from kidney

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 hospitable friends,
cheery hotels and pleasant cottages. Travelers who
go early in the season to the tropical part of the
State do wisely to turn aside at Jacksonville and
visit De Funiak S'prings on their homeward journey,
not only to attend its Chautauqua, but also to enjoy
its. invigorating air.

There are many lakes of rare beauty

picture, while fine residences amid delightful en
vironments can be seen through the openings for
miles in every direction. The scenery justifies the
title of the 'Adirondlacks of Western Florida," and
De Funiak has been appropriately styled "A Little
Venice," with fairy parks, miniature lakes, tumbling
cascades, waterfalls and fountains. The pine trees
that stand on the border of the lake are giants of

There is a good shady drive around them, affording

are also good livery facilities to the Gulfside and

The Hotel Chautauqua, a

hotel, is fitted with modern
conveniences, and furnishes every possible comfort

New York, and many other States, make happy all
visitors by cordial hospitality.

CLASS WORIK ALONG VARIOUS LINES




The Florida Chautauqua announces the follow-
ing departments for the coming season of Nineteen
Hundred and Twelve, comprising class work in all
the lines of Cha~utaugua study.
Special attention is called this year to the School
of .Oratory and Expression, which will be conducted
by Dr.~ Byron W! King's School of Oratory of Pitts-
burgh, Pennsylvania; and the School of Health and
Domestic Science, conducted by Dr. Carolyn Geisel
of the Battle Creek Sanitarium of Battle Creek,
Mich.. Instruction will` also 'be given in literature,
music, 'voice culture, elocution, physical culture and
training, and the literature of the Bible. The courses
are in the hands of teachers of wide experience and
afford splendid opportunities for teachers, as well
as for those who are spending a winter's vacation in
'the Southland. The Saturday programs have been
made with special attention to the vast crowds which
come from all over West Florida, and especiallY
along the P. & A. Division of the Louisville & Nash-
ville Railroad, and each visitor will find something
in the wide range of topics presented on thait day
. that will make the trip worth while, and be of abid-
ing interest, more than repaying a visit to the Chau-
taugua on each of these excursion days.

The educational value of good music and its re-
fmling influence upon the individual have caused the
Chautauqua management to place special emphasis
upon this department, as in the past, and every week
at least one concert company or male quartet is fea-
lured upon the program. Our patrons will be glad














Nell Bunnell
to note among others the Wilbur Starr Male Quar-
tet with' Mr. Wilbur Starr, baratorie soloist; H. U.
Engle, and the Otterbein Male Quartet and B~ell
Ringers, who have endeared themselves to the hearts
of all West Florida Chautauguans. The Price-Shipley
Concert Company with their Saxophone Quartet will
be something of a novelty to our patrons, while the
DeKoven Male Quartet and Lyric Glee Club, pre-
senting humorous and dramatic scenes from the pop-
ular operas, lend life and popularity to the program.
Louise Morgan Amsbury will spend a week at the
