but these last three dayts are to be
"filled with morsels of . real richness.
Today saw a new galaxy of stars on
the Chautauqua boards for the first
time, as the' principals of last week
have left for other places. Knowing
that nothing but high-class attrac-1
tions are slated, a large crowd is ex
pected tonight when Edward Brush,
the magician, gives his wonders of
mysteryland. The other classes of the
morning are progressing very satis
factorily and word3 of praise are
' heard coming to the management for
the skill and teaching powers of the
leaders In each of the departments.
Rev. Redfern, the Boise student of
, the Bible, will make his concluding
address of a series very Instructive
discourses tomorrow, he being called
away one day before the close. His
address yesterday afternoon was a
