The Elocutionists. Never
in the history of the Willam

felt keener satisfaction than in
the announcement of the en
gagement of S. S. Hamill, A.
M., and his talented daughter,
Miss Minnie Hamill, as our
readers and instructors in elo
cution. We believe they have
done well and are sanguine
that the popular verdict at the
end of the session will be that
the instruction received and
the pleasure of listening to the
rjading and recitations of
these talented people was worth
the whole price of admission.
Prof. Hamill will instruct a
class in "Vocal Culture and
Vocal Expression," each morn- . . "
ing from 9 to 10 a. m., and he dr. Stephen' 8. wipe.

Prof. W. H. Boyer will again have
charge of the musical program and is
now putting forth unusual efforts to
make -his department the equal in ex
cellence to any other at the Assembly.
Indeed, as last year, the music will be a
special feature and attraction. Prof.
Boyer will personady give instruction to
a chorus class each day from 10 to 11 a.
m., and no doubt a great many singers,
who are deBiroua of advancement, will
lend their presence and receive the ben
efits that come from contact with a first
class instructor and singer.
Last year Prof. Boyer, with splendid
assistance, gave the "Prodigal Son," by

venient, bring their cameras.

nine roomings at the 11 o'clock hour. A
special feature.
Few cities can boast of a Btronger pul
pit than Portland. Most of the men
in the pastorate of these city churches
have been picked out of the leading
cities of the East and brought to the
coast because of their ability in the pul
pit and on the platform.
All friends of the Willamette Valley
Chautauqua will be pleased to know that
theBe ministers have secured one of the
best hours each day, excepting the first
day of the session and the last, from 11
o'clock a. m. to 12 m., for the consider
ation of subjects of practical importance
$ t only to ministers themselves but to
all who may be present.
The discussions are to he of the Round
Table Bort. free from stiffness and brist
ling with intereit. This feature of the
Chautauqua alone will amply repay the
time and expense of camping on the
grounds through the session.
The athletic features of the Chautau.
qua Association have come to be one of
iis greatest attractions. The assembly
has a splendid quarter mile bicycle track
and in the center of the ring is a base
ball ground such as is found nowhere
in Oregon. The track and diamond is
situated in a natural amphitheater, sur
rounded by gentle elevations covered
with evergreen trees.
Ten thousand people can watch a game
with comfort and pleasure and enjoy at
the same time the shade oi the beautiful
