Here Kext Week.
William Sterling Battia who appears
in his celebrated lecture "Life Por
trayals" from the- Dickens' novels. Il
lustrating 13 of the. 'most prominent
character - in costume and will ap
pear at the Chautauqua Saturday eve
ning, July 8th. is talked of by the
"Lyceumlte" in this tone:
In his "Life Portrayals" Mr. Battis
has something entirely new to the
platform. It is so different, so de
lightfully entertaining, and with such
an undercurrent of literary and edu
cational value, that if is sure to do
much In th'e promotion of hla growing
popularity. T .
Only the deep students of Dickens
do what Mr. Battis does in this enter
tainment. ,
In make up and costume Mr. Battis
portrays 13 of Dickens' most famous
characters. He does not suggest the
characters they are flieBh and blood
creations they are as real and diver'
sled as any 13 strong characterizations
one might pick from the stage. The
makeup of each character is complete,
and the costumes are historically cor
rect. Mr. Battis makes rapid ; and
complete changes, even to the shoes
and boots. He gives the entire enter
tainment, and makes all the changes
without leaving the platform. While1
making the changes he discourses on
the next character, giving a brief out
line of the story from which the char
acter Is taken and explaining the ob
ject Dickens had 'a view when he
wrote tt. Be it known Dickens did not
write a story merely for the sake of
the story he had a reform in mind,
and his writings jid a world of good.
Mr. Battis keeps all this hi mind when
presenting the characters, and por
trays them, not as you or I might fan
cy them, but as nearly as Dickens saw
them as it la possible to do. "
The entertainment contains plenty
of humor, a little pathos and some
strong dramatic climaxes. For each
character Mr. Battis has arranged a
sort of composite scene a weaving
together of various words and sentenc
es belonging to that particular charac
terizationmaking every sketch com
plete' in itself. There slips into one's
mind a knowledge of the great au
thor's work without one's knowing ic.
That's the truest kind of lyceum enter
tainment. Dr. Sadler's Health lectures.
Another writer saya of the Saddlers,
whom La Grand people know so well :
The doctor's life work in study nr.d
experience has been the preparation
of his lectures. While the doctor is
known from ocean to ocean because
of his health lectures, nevertheless,
he delights in giving his illustrated
lectures on the slums, for the purpose
of creating sentiment and sympthy in
behalf of the submerged tenth.
Both the doctor and his wife have
been interested in the dwellers of the
slums since their student days. Many
of the doctor's beneficiaries can be
found today In the 'counting room, in
prominent business ' establishments
and some hame eyeri attained eminence
in his own profession. v.
The doctor's slum lectures are in
every sense refined. Scenes of pover
ty and squalor are presented without
the odor of vice and crime. The ma
Jortty of the views shown by the doc
tor in his slum lectures were taken by
hi own hand or by his wife and co-Ta
borer, during their dozen years of
work in the slums.
Dr. Sadler Is a regular practicing
physician. Tn no sense, a fadlst or ex
tremist He aims. to teach the people
plain facts ana lmple truth and trusts
their common sense to make their
own rules of living. The doctor Is ut
terly opposed both to the fadlst who
will try to tell everyone else how to
live, and to the hygienic nihilist, who
teaches the people' to eat anything and
everything and to do about as they
please In all matters of health.
The doctor Is a recognized medlca
teacher in Chicago, and holds member
ship In the leading American medical
and Scientific associations, as well as
In numerous International medical
bodies.. 'rr""1TJ
The doctor's health lectures are cer
tainly unique They are positively un
like anything heretofore offered. The
doctor talks straight from the shoul
der and straight to the common people.
Even the- school, children enjoy his
lectures, for they are , entirely free
from all medical terms and scientific
Th doctor chooses to speak from
the Chautauqua platform, because he
believes It is his duty to spend a part
of his time and energy in teaching
th well man to keep well. He re
gards it a mistake for his profession
to spend all of their time on the Blck
people, and this is why both he ar.d
his wife leave their practice for a few
weeks each year and address them
selves to' the task of teaching well
nigh a quarter of a million of peope
the gospel of health and the secrets of
