The Florida Chautauqua

DE FUNIAK SPRINGS, FLORIDA

The Great Winter Chautauqua of the South

February 25th to April 5th, 1914

The Twenty-fifth of February, Nineteen Hundred and
Fourteen, will make the opening of the Thirtieth Annual
Session of the Florida Chautauqua held at DeFuniak
Springs, the seat of this great institution of Western Flori-
da, which has meant so much for the betterment of human-
ity and the upbuilding of the state. An elaborate pro-
gram has been prepared, consisting of the best instruction
and entertainment offered to the American people by those
platform artists who have spent their life that others
might have brought to them the best in music, literature,
art, culture, science and the great questions of political
and economic government. Year by year there is an in-
creased interest in the great moral and social questions
that have confronted the Nation, and the solution of these
















The New Auditorium
issues by men of national reputation presenting wherever
practicable both sides of the question is one of the vital
parts played by the real Chautauqua. An examination of
the details of program will show splendid lectures on
literature, travel, economics, Biblical literature, art, elocu-
tion, story telling and their kindred subjects, while various
forms of high class entertainment such as concerts, feats
of magic, monologues, illustrated travelogues, motion pic-
tures, scientific experiments, Shakespearean Plays and up-
lifting productions of all kinds render De Funiak Springs
an ideal place for spending the winter months, free from the
snow and cold, among the balmy breezes of the Southland.
The Biblical hour which, with the Sunday service, forms
the great bulwark and strength of the Chautauqua move-
ment, is duly emphasized. Literature and music play an
important part in the morning and afternoon entertain-

ment. The auditorium, the largest Chautauqua amphi-
theatre in the Southland, is superbly fitted with all modem
conveniences. In addition to a seating capacity ap-
proaching four thousand it is steam heated and fully
equipped with electric lights with dissolving color effects
and footlights for the presentation of plays and grand con-
certs. The stage alone has a capacity for over one hun-
dred actors.
De Funiak Springs is located on the Louisville & Nash-
ville 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 alti-
tude 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 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


The Lake by Moonlight


of our continent, and one of the world's wonders, for no-
where 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 appropriate-
ly 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
the forest, and remain like sentinels guarding its beauty.
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
seekers after health, pleasure and entertainment.

The absolute purity and curative quali-

ly known as "the land Springs of the
South," while her clear atmosphere, bright skies, high
altitude and balmy breezes form an ideal combination
for the health-seeker. Alpine Spring is now everywhere
recognized as a complete curative for those suffering from
kidney complaints. It has restored many to health and
vigor.


As De Funiak Springs is situated

midway between Jacksonville and New Orleans, one
hundred and thirty miles southeast of Thomasville, visitors
journeying southward from Chicago, Cincinnati, St.
Louis and the West, find this spot the most easy of access

to 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 Springs
on their homeward journey, not only to attend its Chau-
tauqua, but also to enjoy its invigorating air.


There are many lakes of rare beauty
OUR LAKES. near De Funiak where those fond of
the water can row and fish to their
heart's. content. The nearest are the 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 Gulfside and
other points where hunting and fishing are found.

Adjoining the Chautauqua Park and
ALPINE PARK. Lake, is a delightful resting-place where
the lover of nature can walk among
stately pines, bask in the sunshine and 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.

The Hotel Chautauqua, a large
ACCOMMODATIONS. and admirably kept hotel, is
fitted with modem conveniences
and furnishes every possible comfort to its guests. Several
smaller hotels also present reasonable rates to tourists,
and there are many cottages with comfortable accommo-
dations. Delightful families from the North have for
years made De Funiak their winter home. People from
Iowa, Wisconsin, Dakota, Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Minne-
sota, New York, and many other States, make happy all
visitors by cordial hospitality.


The Excursions which take place on
EXCURSIONS. Saturday are marked features of the
Chautauqua season. On some of
these days crowded trains bring fully 4,000 people to the
Chautauqua. The Saturday programs are especially
interesting and attractive, and the large auditorium on the
lakeside is always crowded to its utmost capacity. The
Wednesday holidays also afford opportunity for excursions
to various places of interest.

CLASS WORK ALONG VARIOUS LINES




The Florida Chautauqua announces the following de-
partments for the coming season of Nineteen Hundred
and Fourteen, comprising class work in all the lines of
Chautauqua 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 Pittsburgh, Penn-
sylvania; and the School of Health and Domestic Science,
conducted by Dr. Carolyn Geisel of the Battle Creek
Sanitarium of Battle Creek, Mich. and the full course in
Chautauqua Literature conducted by Ida B. Cole, field
secretary of the C. L. S. C. of Chautauqua, N. Y.
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 opportu-
nities for teachers, as well as for those who are spending a
winter's vacation in the Southland. The Saturday pro-
grams have been made with special attention to the vast
crowds which come from all over West Florida, and espe-
cially 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 that day that will make
the trip worth while, and be of abiding interest, more than
repaying a visit to the Chagutauqua on each of these ex-
eursion days.

Walo's Concert Band and Orchestra of St. Louis, Mis-
souri, will be with the Chautauqua throughout the entire
six weeks. For those who wish instruction in cornet, vio-
lin, clarinet, and other instruments, arrangements will be
made by seeing Mr. Walo, the leader of the orchestra. In-
struction in voice or piano will be given for those who de-
sire it by Miss Lucille Jordan. The coming season is es-
pecially rich in music. Three male quartets, two ladies'
quartets, and two concert companies, beside soloists, so-
prano, contralto, tenor and bass, have been engaged by
the Chautauqua and will appear at various times through-
out the season.

*cbool of Pealtb anb oome JoutrSing
r- Dr. Caroline Geisel of Battle Creek Sanitarium 'will con-
duct a School of Health and Home Nursing at the Chau-
tauqua during the month of March, and diplomas will be


given to the students, as is her custom at Chautauquas,
at the end of the full prescribed course of instruction. A
trained Nurse from the Battle Creek Sanitarium accom-
panies Dr. Geisel, and great practical benefit is derived
from the public lectures as well as the special class work.
At the Chautauquas throughout our land these courses
have won deserved praise and popularity, so much so that
Dr. Geisel has often been styled by managers, "One of the
Seven Wonders of the Platform." Personal magnetism,
wide experience as surgeon, physician and lecturer, special
study in the great universities and hospitals of France,
Germany, Russia and England, as well as in our own land,
render her lectures and class work of untold value to the
average homekeeper and mother, on whom devolves the
care of the children, the healthful welfare of the family at
large, and the economic management of the household
affairs. This course is one that has ever attracted a large
number of patrons, and our neighbors in our nearby towns
are looking forward to the return of Dr. Geisel and setting
aside the time to visit the Chautauqua when this course is
scheduled on the program. For further information con-

High School En Route to Auditorium
( zr IlCten'0
This day will come early at the Chautauqua Session of'
1914. The attention of our patrons is called to this fact.
Usually it has been held in the middle of March but this
year it will be on the first Saturday, February 28th. No
one in West Florida-.an afford to miss this great day. The
chief feature will b' Prof. Pamahasika and his Peto. This.
is one of the most- wonderful attractions foi Ctildren's
Day. Prof. Pamahasika brings upon the platform' a large
number of trainedidogs,` cats, monkeys, birds 'and animals
of all sorts, who plky' musical instruments, march, and per-
form many wonderful tricks. It is especially interesting
to see the love that Prof. Pamahasika has for the animals
and the love that the animals return to him.- This has
been recognized during the past year as the greatest"at-
traction for Children's Day at the Chautauqua as it does
so much to cultivate the love for animals in the child's mind.
Music at this time will be furnished by the Beulah Buck
Quartet, and there will be many humorous selections of
special interest for the children. Florence Lahrmer, .the
greatest child impersonator in our, country, will also be
present on this day.

week to the Literature of the Bible. Mrs. C de, Secre-
tary of the Chautauqua C. L. S. C. movemen*;will give
*a series of lectures on The Relation of Woman to the
Home, with special reference to the new Suffragette Move-
ment both in England and in the United States. An inter-
esting part of Mrs. Cole's work will also be 'AThe House
' Beautiful" or house furnishings in the bungalow as well as
the more elaborate city drawing-room. This course of
lectures given by Mrs. Cole will be of special benefit from
a literary standpoint. Kenneth Bruce concludes the work
in literature with a series of lectures on the English Drama,
Scottish Literature, and "How to Read," or the best ways

to study the world's masterpieces. This course will also
be supplemented by readings from the best authors, giv-
en by the prominent Lyceum readers in our country.

'5ibIe 0out

The Bible Study Class has ever been one of the strong
points of this institution. The first week will be opened
by Dr. Edmond F. Albertson of New York. The work
will be continued by Dr. Byron W. King, "Sunshine"
Hawkes, Dr. George Summey, and other leaders in Bible
Study. This department, which has always been one of
the bulwarks of the Chautauqua, will be of unusual inter-
est the coming season. Arrangements are under way to
have several men of national and international reputation


Chautauqua Orchestra


appear on the program. The management is now in cor-
respondence with Hon. George P. Wendling, whose "Man
of Galilee" has exercised more influence over the religious
mind of America than that of any one lecture given by any
of the platform trumpets of the present age.
The work of Dr. George Summey will be of special in-
terest. It might almost be called a Sextet of Johns. Six
morning Bible lectures deal with the following subjects:
- John Crysostom-the Preacher; John Wycliffe--the
Morning Star; John Huss-the Martyr; John Calvin-
the Organizer; John Wesley-the Evangelist; and John
Bunyan-the Dreamer. This is a series of lectures which
will be of vital interest not only to Biblical students 'but
also to those students who are attending Palmer College,
the Industrial School and the High School.


InbuStrial cbool

During the last few months a new Industrial School,
erected to the memory of Dr. Hiram W. Thomas, and called
the Thomas Memorial Industrial School, has built several


CHAUTAUQUA 11

buildings and begun a great work in our city. There are
now enrolled some hundred students and more are coming
as soon as proper accommodations can be procured. This
institution bids fair to become one of the great educational
features of the Southland.
Palmer College anD acaDemp
DeFuniak Springs has been called, with good reason,
"the Athens of West Florida." Here is a center of edu-
cation from which radiate unusual influences for scholar-
ship, refinement, and culture. Side by side with the Flor-
ida Chautauqua, which has done so much for this whole
section, stands Palmer College, a twentieth century .in-
stitution, offering excellent opportunity for higher educa-
,tion. .In addition to the usual literary and scientific
courses, it maintains first class departments in vocal and
instrumental music, art, elocution, and physical culture.
The ideals of the institution are those of the small col-,
lege and embrace a happy home life for the students, in-
timate social intercourse between the faculty and students,
and the personal influence that is only possible in the small
group.
The college was fathered by Presbyterians and boasts
its ancestry as a guarantee of its distinctly Christian char-
.acter. However the institution is entirely nonsectarian.
Its object is to give to the public an institution of learning
where the people of all denominations may send their sons
and daughters to be educated under Christian influences,
and yet without interfering with the religious preferences
of any.. Its faculty is drawn from all denominations.


,


Palmer College-New Dormitory
During the past summer a new dormitory was built at
a cost of about twenty thousand dollars. This building
contains rooms for fifty-six boys, a suite of rooms for a
teacher and his family, two society halls, and a large
gymnasium. It is steam heated, and is equipped with all
modem conveniences. The girls' dormitory was renewed
inside.
,The college is now busily engaged in perfecting plans to.
enlarge its facilities for doing its ever increasing work and
to enable it to meet the demands of an awakened and rap-
idly-growing section.

CHAUTAUQUA 25


The first exclamation made by visitors to our beautiful
city is one of surprise at the neat and cleanly appearance
of De Funiak Springs. There are many beautiful homes
on the circle surrounding the lake and on the important
resident streets, and those looking for a home, either for
the winter months or for the entire year find everything
that can be desired for their personal comfort. The main
street is well equipped with stores and the merchandise and
goods sold over the county is equal to that found in most
of the large cities.
De Funiak Springs might also be styled the City of
Churches. Almost every denomination is represented,
with the splendid buildings erected by the Presbyterians,
Methodists, Baptists, .Episcopalians, Christians and Uni-
versalists.
The fraternal organizations are strong. There are lod-
ges of Masons, Odd Fellows, Knights of Pythias, Wood-
men of the World, etc., all of which are in a flourishing
condition.

The town is equipped with a splendid electric light plant,
complete system of waterworks and sewerage, and all the
modem and up-to-date improvements of the Northern
cities, and the gradual rise and growth in real estate and
property surrounding De Funiak Springs offer splendid in-
ducements for the investment of capital.

There is a great future for Western Florida and Walton
county, and the steady increase in population and the con-
servative rise in values shows a steady and natural growth
which points to continuous and assured prosperity.


De Juniak jLake
(By Wallace Bruce)
A Lotus-land where Time forgets its date.
A dreaming place beneath the swaying trees;
A lake so pure it seems the wedded mate
Of yon fair sky, before the rustling breeze
To rippling laughter wakes its gentle breast,
Showing it, too is human. Oh, what joy
To roam in sunlight here, kind Nature's guest,
Wooing her smile! or, bliss without alloy,
To watch the moonlight kiss the lapsing wave
With one we love, and speak with answering eyes
The language Paradise ne'er lost, but gave
Lest man should be an outcast from the skies.
No spot so sweet; no water half so blue;
God's crowning circle wrought with compass true.
