A GREAT SUCCESS
SESSION JUST CLOSED ONE OF
MOST PROSPEROUS YET HELD
The fifth annual Chautauqua
came to a close last Friday even
ing, and while it usually runs
through Saturday, the people were
ready to stop, for the week had
been fearfully hot and very dry.
The News-Gazette gave a brief
account of the attractions during
the first part of last week, con
cluding with a notice of Dr.
Andrew’s great lecture on Robert
Following this came Prof. J. E.
Woodland Wednesday evening in
his lecture, with illustrations, on
Liquid Air. This proved to be
one of the best and most interest
ing things during the week. The
demonstrations were marvelous
and the people said that they got
their money’s worth from this en
tertainment alone. Prof. Wood
land lectured again Friday even
ing on “Wireless Telegraphy”
which was little less interesting
and remarkable than his lecture
on Liquid air.
Thursday morning Rev. Frank
Dixon gave his second gfhat lec
ture. His subject was “The
Future American,” and he made
him out the greatest character of
the ages, a combination of the best
from all nationalities. The lec
ture was full of thrilling stories
and great thoughts and made a
deep impression on nil who heard
it. Mr. Dixon is one of the big

TOM WAT BON'S DAY.
Friday, July 4th. was the big
gest day of the chautauqua, for
that day Hon. Thomas E. Wat
son, Georgia’s famous orator,
statesman and historian, was the
star attraction. He had decidedly
the largest crowd of the week, and
it was a Watson audience for they
applauded him vigorously from
start to finish.
A pleasant feature of the day
was Mr. Watson’s introduction by
that grand old warrior, Gen.
Clement A. Evans, who had come
do from Atlanta to attend the
Mr. Watson’s subject was
“Imperialism And Democracy.”
He defined both and illustrated
them from the important nations
of the earth. It was a masterful
presentation of the subject, and
was thoroughly enjoyed by the.
the vast audience. Mr. Watson
was accorded a great ovation by
the people here that day.
Following the address a magnifi
cent barbecue was tendered chau- .
tauqua patrons,which had been ar
ranged py the citizens of Barnes.;
ville. About fifteen hundred peo-,
pie were fed and there was an
abundance left. The barbecue was
a perfect success in every way. It
was served in the armory of Gor
don Institute and every body!
seemed to do full.justice to the!
occasion. The day was a splendid
CHAUTAUQUA NKXT YEAR.
The directors announced Fri
day evening that this chautauqua
had been a financial success and
that the Sixth Annual Session
would begin on Sunday, June, 28,
1908. No doubt this is good news,
for the Bartlesville chautauqua is
an institution that, as Col. Lamb
din says, should go on forever.
The directors of the chautauqua
also announced Friday evening
that they would present Prof.
Fred Wedemeyer, the finest band
master of the south, with a medal,
in appreciation of the excellent
music he and his band have fur
nished again this year. This
medal will be presented as soon as.
as it can be made. '
