Oregon Chautauqua closed Thurs
day, with a record of ununually good
attendance, despite tho extremely
warm weather thut took much of
the life and enjoyment out of thoso
who were present at the majority of
tho sessions. The seven-day course
embraced many of the leading lec-
of Wednesday evenltfr. He stated
that It was not his mlnulon to relate
pergonal Incidents of the war, hut to
tell of the effects of this war as re
gards the future generations. He
Btated that the fighting men were
sick and tired, of war and wanted
nothing more than peace. Any lure
the call of war had for young men
turers and entertainers who came. In the year 1914 has long since been
with a message to deliver and in
no wise failed lil their mission. Th'J
excellent attidance this year be
speaks the future of this institution
as a most prosperous one.
Aside from Bryan's lecture In the
afternoon of Tuesday Chautauqua
presented another groat feiutTe in
the evening, that of the Czecho-Slo-vtk
hand. Ashland hae had many
good hands in tho past and Is a
dispelled, and he claimed that any
soldier will declare that war is a
worthless game simply a business
of killing or being killed.

over the affair as niaotcr of cere

of hospitality characteristic of the
southland from which he originally
came, aided by the gracious friend

his adopted country. He was assist
ed by a number of other public
spirited residents who made epeclal
effort to give Mr. Bryan a welcome
that would make blra remember
