The Florida Chautauqua
DE FUNIAK SPRINGS, FLORIDA

The Great Winter Chautauqua of the South
March Ist to April 9th, 1916
The Plorida Chautauqua Association will open its
thirty-second annual session in the large auditorium at
seven-thirty, on the night of March the first.
The history of this Institution forms one of the brigh~t-
est pages in the intellectual and moral growth of this sec-
tion of the Southland, and the principles of the true Chan-
taugua movement as laid down by Bishop Vincent and
the early founders of the mother Chautauqua have been
strictly adhered to by the directors of this Institution in
the past. Year by year, various movements connected
with the material up-growth of the community, as well as
the intellectual development of the citizens, have been
added to the list of attractions, and today flourishing
Schools in Literature, Elocution, Music, Speech Arts, and

kindred subjects offer splendid opportunities to those in
the inunediate vicinity and adjoining states, as well as
to the winter visitors and regular patrons of the Chau-
tanqua.
This year marks the third annual meeting of the W~est
Florida Teachers' Institute, which is one of the biggest
educational features of the Chautauqua; the fourth year
of the School of Home Nursing and Domestic Economics,
which has been and still is under the control of Dr. Carolyn
Geisel; and the second year of the Better Babies' Contest,
which movement produced specific rbs~;idts 11dt ~e~ison.:
The coming session shows also, thy~ -Biaginom of a efat i
Bible Institute, to which delegates are commg from all
over West Florida and Southern Alabama.
Examination of the program will reveal the fact that
special emphasis is placed on lectures of literature, travel,

economics, Bible literature, and stirring addresses on
vital subjects by men of national reputation. Illustrated
travelogues, moving pictures, concert companies, male
quartettes, impersonations, and the lighter forms of the
best entertainment have a prominent part in the Chau-
tanqua work.
De~uniak Springs is an ideal place for spending the
winter months free from the snow and cold of the North
lands, and the Chautauqua affords abundant entertain-
ment.
The auditorium, the largest Chautauqua amphitheatre
in the Southland, is superbly fitted with all modern con-
veniences. In addition to a seating capacity approaching
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 concerts. The
stage alone has a capacity for over one hundred actors.
De Puniak Springs is located on the Louisville & Nash-
ville Riailroad, midway between Tallahassee and Pensacola.

tion. The scenery justifies the title of the "Adirondacks
of Western Plorida," 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.

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 sufering from
kidney complaints. It has restored many to health and
vigor.

As De Funiak Springs is situated
ACCESSIBILITY. on the Pensacola and Atlantic Di-
vision of the Louisville & Nashville
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 Plorida 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

the water can row and fish to their
heart's content. The nearest are the Stanley Lakes,

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
of our continent, and one of the world's wonders, for no-
where else between the Atlantic and Pacific, or indeed in
San; pprt j& thie gobe, has this gem of a lake an equal in

the silvery beach, form a frame-like margin to the lovely
picture, while fine residences amid delightful environments

from the car window on approaching De Puniak 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 livfery 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 Walto n, a lar ge

fitted with modern 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 Puniak 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
Sixteen, comprising class work in all the lines of Chautauqua
study.
Special attention is called this year to the School of Ora-
tory and Expression, which will be conducted by Dr. Byron
W. King's School of Oratory of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania;
and the School of Health and Domestic Science, conducted
by Dr. Caroly~n Geisel of the Battle Creek Sanitarium of
Battle Creek, Mich., who will also conduct a school of
cooking and the Better Babies' Contest.
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 expeci-
ally 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 Chautauqua on each of these ex-
cursion days.

Members of the orchestra are prepared to give lessons
to those who desire instruction on the violin, piano, trom.

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-
cerning this course, address Kenneth Bruce, Superinten-
dent of the Florida Chautauqua, De Puniak Springs, Plor-
ida, requesting detailed program.



The Department of Literature will be conducted by
Kenneth Bruce, Dr. Byron W. King, Hester E. Hosford
and others. The line of work will embrace studies in
Shakespeare, the American and English Poets, and con-
temporaneous literature, in which both the drama and the
novel will be presented. Miss Hosford, whose reputation
is national will bring new life and interest to this Depart-
ment. She has had wide experience as teacher of Litera-
ture in New York and New Jersey and her subjects cover
Sa wide range of topics, economic as well as literary.

A great Sunday School Institute especially arranged

Music is one of the important features of the Plorida
Chautauqua Association, and the coming program is es-
pecially rich in concert companies and quartets. The
programs given on Saturdays are popular in character,
and they are especially arranged to appeal to the large
excursions which attend the Chautauqua on those days.

Dr. Carolyn Geisel of Battle Creek Sanitarium will con-
duct a School of Health and Home Nursing at the Chan-
tauqua during the month of March, and diplomas will be
given to the students, as is her custom at Chautanquas,
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 Chautanquas 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 W~onders 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 large

The Bible Hour which will lie held as usual at ten o'clock
each morning, with the exception of Saturdays, will be
opened by Dr.Byron W. King The work wcill then befol-
lowed by Dr. Wm. W. Evans of Pennsylvania, who,
though a new man in West Florida, has had wide experi-
ence as a teacher of the Bible. Dr. Lincoln Hulley who
has a reputation throughout the United States for his in-

Dr. E. P. Albertson contributes a series of lectures, dealing

Complimentary tickets will be issued to every teacher and
their attendance is earnestly desired. All of the West
Plorida County Superiritendents will be present and will
participate in the exercises. Excellent programs have been
prepared by the Superintendents, and a glance at the de-
tailed program on these days will show who are to take
part in this meeting, the subjects of their work. The ser-
Svices of Dr. Lincoln Hulley, President of John B. Stetson
University of Deland, Florida, Dr. Wm. W. Evans, one
.of the foremost educators of Pennsylvania and a man who
has for many years been connected with the Teachers'
Institutes in that section, together with Dr. Bryon W.
King who is well known to all the teachers of this section,
have been secured by the Association. State Superin-
tendent W. W. Sheets and Professor S. Phillips of the
State Board of Education, will also be present. The
work is in charge of a special committee consisting of
Superintendents A. S. Edwards, C. B. King, W. B. Horn,
P. Brigman and J. E. McDade, D. N. Trotman, W. C
Pryor, J. T. Diamond and Professor Wr. M. Kemper and
Kenneth Bruce, President of the Plorida Chautauqua.
This is the third year that the Institute has been held in
connection with the Florida Chautauqua ~Association.
Last year several hundred teachers enrolled. It is the
hope of the Association that this year, all teachers of

tures on the New Testament. The Bible Hour has ever
been one of the bulwarks of the Chautauqua, and the re-
ligious side of the work which this Institution is presenting,
cannot be overestimated. Many people have been
brought into the churches and have since beconie active
church members through the influence of the large Sun-
da~y night gatherings in the Auditorium.

The Old Home Week which was held last year Rttinglyr
culminated with an Old Home Night which was greatly
enjoyed by all. This delightful evening, replete with fun
and good fellowship, will be again repeated at the Chan-
taugua the coming season. An added feature of the Old
Home Celebration, will also be the revival of the Old
Fashioned Spelling Match, which, in the past ~was an an'
nual affair at the Plorida: Chautauqua. A prize will be
given at this time for the winner of the spelling contest,
and it is hoped that added zest may be given by co-opera-
tion from the various educational organizations in the city.

All the teachers in West Florida are requested to note
the dates of the Teachers' Institute, March the 8th to the
11th, which will be held at De~uniak Springs, Plorida.

West Plorida may join this organization, as it will be one
of the greatest forces in the betterment of the educational
equipment throughout the Southland.


Saturday, March the 11th will be set apart for a great
Peace Day. It is the desire of the Chautauqua Asso-
ciation to present from its platform all the great move-
ments that are at present before the public, and with this
in mind they have secured Senator Burton and Congress-
man Slaydon.0f Texas, who will be present on this occa-
sion. It is a great opportunity for the people of this
section to hear these men of national reputation, and the

subject of Universal Peace has always been, and will ever
be dear to the hearts of all patriotic Americans. It is
the desire of the Association to present both sides of each
question, and it is the hope of the management to also se-
cure a prominent speaker on the subject of Preparedness a
little later during the session, in order that the people of
this section may see both sides of this great question.

On Saturday, March 18th, the annual veterans' rally
will be held at the Florida Chautauqua in the large audi-
torium. This will be featured with appropriate music and
exercises, and short addresses by members of the brigade.
This event has become closely associated with the Chan-
tanqua for many years, and the excursion trains bring
several thousand visitors on that day. Special rates are
in force for the day.
The day is in charge of General R. D. McLeodl, Major
General L. H. Buchanan of the Plorida Brigade, U. C. V.,
will also be present. General Palmer, G. A. R., has been
invited to deliver the address at the 3 o'clock hour in the

Here is one of the big things connected with the Chan-
tanqua movement. Last year the medal was won by
Miriamn Rebecca Pisher. Dr. Carolyn Geisel will per-
sonally examine all babies entered in this contest. She will
be at the Chautauqua from March 13th to March 26th.
It is well to remember that it is not the prize baby that is
the real winner, but the under sized and undeveloped child
whose parent follows the valuable advice of Dr. Geisel
and brings the child up to be a strong and efficient citizen,
who is the true gainer from this movement.

On Saturday, April 8th, at the 3 o'clock holir a special
admission will be charged for the lecture of Vice-President
Thdimas R. Marshall. This follows the custom inaugurated
some years ago at the Mother Chautauqua at Chautauqua


Athletic Day
Lake, New York, and which has been successfully followed
by the larger Institutions throughout our land. In the
early years of the Plorida Chautauqua Association special
charges (or charges in addition to the season ticket for
certain days such as Sam Jones' day and others), were ii>
vogue, and the re-establishment of this custom has been
decided upon this year by the management. However,
those who purchase season tickets will have the privilege
of purchasing an admission ticket at half the price charged'
those who have not the season ticket. For example the
price of admission to the lecture of Mr. Marshall will be
50 cents, but to those who are holders of season tickets
the price will be only 25 cents, and the school children only
15 cents. The special day-ticket on April 8th will be
7i5 cents. This is necessary as the fee paid attractions for
special days is so high that the management cannot afford
to secure these men without extra gate receipts. The
management is also in correspondence with Hon.
William J. Bryan, Charles Dalmores, the celebrated Grand
Opera Tenor, and other celebrities and in case arrange-

The School of Photography will be conducted as usual
by Mr. George Carden in the Chantauglua Studio, where

charge for all who desire to follow this fascinating outdoor
pastime.

The annual base ball game between Pensacola and
Palmer College for the Chantatiqua Cup wpill be played
on the Palmer College base ball diamond at 3 P. M.
on Saturday, April 1st. Last year Palmer College won
the game by a small score and is the present holder of the
Cup. In addition to this event other contests will be held
such as track and relay races, announcements of which
will be given in the press of West Florida.

Here is a strong, young, growing institution, placed in a
section of the country which needs an institution of higher
learning, with a faculty unsurpassed in training and cul-
ture adequately preparing the student for any college in
the land, in the academy or preparatory department, as
well as furnishing a fine classical and scientific'collegiate
course, Last year's work was riot-only marked by the con-
ferring of several degrees, but also by the erection of new
buildings and substantial campus improvements. The New
Boys' Dormitory, one of the best equipped mn the South-
land, h s ben an added attraction, wh ite the victories of
students from various parts of, the surrounding territory.
The course of instruction is thorough and effcient, the dis-
cipline admirable and the tone of the institution all that
could be desired to develop the best that is in each mndi-
vidual student. The college has a great future.

ments are made for these attractions fhe same extra charge
or a greater will be put in effect. It is the desire of the
Chautauqua to bring people of note to the people ofi West
Plorida, but they must in some way realize enough to at
least come within a hundred dollars of paying the fee of
the attraction.

The price of season tickets will remain as in the past,

De~uniak Springs is widely known throughout the
United States, and especially in West Florida, as a great
educational center. Last year, the inauguration of the
Thomas Memorial Industrial School, was a great acqui.
sition to the other institutions of learning already located
in this section. Several large buildings were erected and
a skilled faculty has been engaged for the coming season.
This institution fills a long felt want. Th~e demand for
technical training, especially along industrial lines, has
been one of the crying needs of the Southland, and this is
now furnished to the students at a very low cost. A de-
partment of agriculture has been added this year and
practical as well as theoretical instruction will. be given
to the students. The Industrial School is meeting with
the hearty co~pperation of all the people of West Florida,
as well as of DeFuniak Springs.

DBe fittdakr Lake
(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.
