PLEASURES OF LIFE NOT
COMPLETE WHEN SENTINEL
FAILS TO REACH BUCKLEYS
A real live-wire booster is Mrs.
J. W. Buckley, formerly of this
city but now n resident of Port
land, who writes: “Life is short
some of its pleasures when The
Sentinel does not arrive.’’
Chautauqua Is Going Over Big; the
Program Proves Most Splendid Yet
With two days yet remaining of
the Chautauqua session, the genertfl
concensus of opinion is that the
city has had a week of the greatest
entertainment ever brought here.
The attendance and interest has
been remarkable considering the in
clemency of the weather and the
signers of the contract will have
but a small deficit to make up,
probably none at all.
The Patton brothers, who opened
the session with an afternoon pre
lude and a complete evening musical
entertainment are well adapted to
the purpose of getting things going.
They are well placed as leaders in a
program that has proved nrtire
varied and better balanced than any
program before presented by Elli
son White, Lowell Patton, pianist,
has appeared here twice before and
the impression he made upon those
former occasions assured his com
pany a most hearty reception. The
other members of the company are
Gault and Donald and the home of
the three is in Portland.
Their programs are given in cos
tumes that add greatly to a pro
gram that would be enjoyable with
out costumes but is a distinct hit
with them. Of all the different sort
of entertainment the Pattons seem
to be among the top Hoteliers.
The Patton brothers worked un
der difficulties, as rain drizzled
through the tent onto the stage
during the first night’s perform
ance. The audience, which filled
the tent, was well enough pleased
to stay the performance through
despite the fact that umbrellas were
a convenience and part of the
ground inside the tent a sea of mud.
The Pattons also assist in putting
on the lunar circus at the first
day’s afternoon performance. This
also is something quite different,
requiring the aid of a large number
of the young people of the commu
nity who take the part of animals.
This is carried out in an ongiual
way. Myrtle McCoy, ring master,
has a pleasingly severe manner in
handling the “brutes” and none
attempted to disobey.
The Ixiwis concert party gave a
pleasing entertainment Tuesday af
ternoon and a pleasing prelude Tues

She preached another sermon upon

another upon the rights and duties

to be well born, which means doing
away with the double standard of
