to their doors, giving millions an easy opportunity to attend

teaching and entertaining '1 - -
And literally millions do attend. . n j;
. They have thus j an opportunity of getting first hand
information about the big world; what the great masses of
mankind are thinking and doing and hoping. The Chautauqua
is thus a cosmopolitan influence. This university of the com
mon people rounds off the corners and polishes up the man

Get busy, J fellows and build
yourself a regular swimming; raft
that will hold together and give
you a lot of real fun. It is easy
to do if you'll get the gang work
ing together. Build your raft by
the water's edge.
First, gather up some good,
dry logs, about 15 feet long and
eight Inches In diameter. You'll
need six of them. With them, lay
out a frame as shown in the pic
ture, using the method Illustrated
In the drawing to get them "hitch
ed together" so ihey will stay.
Now the planking must be put
on' this frame. In the center o
the raft, a trap must be made'
large enough- to allow a barrel to
le dropped through; it, because
that Is exactly wnat it is to be
used for to drop barrels through.
' Get OH Barrels
The next part of thejob 'dn
sisti of getting a fcumber of , old
oil - barrels, ; or any . other kind
which' are not) likely to leak iTat
r. About ten or 15' should! be
procured, and they should then
be tarred and painted" to make
them ' absolutely, water tight;-- pf
course a little plug Is put In one
end of each barrel so that water
ran be emptied out if it does leak
in." r ; ? - 7s r-rr -; , ' -
When these barrels are dry and
readjr to be'put in the water, float

the frame of your raft. It will be
pretty heavy, and can be moved
more easily; if logs or rollers are
put tinder it. When It is floated
and temporarily' anchored, take
one barrel at a time; drop it in the
hole In the center of the raft, and
shove it under the raft. Do this
until you1 have as many barrels
under the raft as there is space
for. 'These barrels will buoy
your raft up so that It will be
quite a steady affair and will hold
great weight without sinking. r
Replace Trap :
With the' barrels all stowed
away, replace the trap and paint
the surface of the raft with deck
paint. After the paint dries, put
a djving board on your raft. If
you have put enough. barrels un
der it, the diving, board will be
steady and will give a good spring.
1 One group of Joys who -made
sucb a; raft placed a little bath
house upon it without much trou
ble, and also a six-foot diving tow
er.' If yon have ail three of these
features, place the bath house in
the center the 'spring 'Aboard on
one side, and the-diving tower , on
the side diametrically opposite.
- This sort of a craft is good for
about 10 years of 'service ; If any
care is taken to keep it in shape.
Paint It every year. i '

which, with no seeking of their own, have had wished upon
them in one wav :and another the responsibility of bringing
the Chautauqua - to Salem. They are under the financial
burden. Theirs is the responsibility of either taking and pay
ing for themselves or distributing to the people generally a
sufficient number of season tickets to make possible Chau
tauqua week in Salem possible
And they need and deserve your help.
This is as much your Chautauqua as it is theirs. It is
as much your duty , as it is theirs to get under the burden.
It would shame you as much as it would any one of these men
and women if Salem failed to support the Chautauqua ; failed
to have a Chautauqua week, when thousands of such towns
as Dallas and Lebanon, throughout the United States, have
their weeks of Chautauqua. , ; . , v v
Nobody makes any money out of Chautauqua.- It is a
mutual concern. There are no dividends, no profits only the
prospect with fair or good returns to: provide better for the
Chautauquas of future years The university of the common
people :is . cooperative. : 1 It t has no endowment funds. i Its
organization and equipment are. "merely the accumulation of
past years of cooperative effort..-.',. I . 1
So, men and women of Salem, if you are solicited to buy
season tickets, do it. 1 1t is yoiir duty, and it should be your
pleasant privilege: - This is your university of the. common
people. . Your dollar is merely J matched against ; the dollar
of the man in Ohio or Oklahoma or some other state, to make
up the whole of the vast number of dollars that make pos
sible the bringing of the university of the common people
to the doors of the common people of the United States, so
that the general mass of intelligence and moral conception
and appreciation of what is good and great and right may
be somewhat lifted and improved each succeeding year. -
- Help the committee. ji So help yourself. Make Salem
known the length, and breadth of the; land as the best Chau
tauqua town in the country. It is a reputation that ought to
be coveted. .

The World's Best Bed
"We got'ta sleep somewhere?
Wat are we going to use? I didn't
brng any bed along with-me." i
"That's easy," the old timer
said to the gang, "here's what you
want to do, and youH have tke
best bed in ' the world." r f
"First, clip a large number of
balsam 'fans and place them on
the floor of your tent or lean-to.
Clip enough so that there will be
plenty for a thick . layer. M Be
careful to have the convex surface
upward and the steins towafd the
foot of the bed. ' f '
v"When you have a nice, thick
layer fixed in this fashion, - get
some more balsam ans and
thatch them with the ones already
In place by thrusting the butt ends
of the stems in the prepared layer,
at a slightly downward angle, and
with ' the stems pointing : toward
the head of the bed.
"Always , have the head of this
kind of a bed away from the open
ing of the tent and the foot to
ward the opening. When I the
tbatchiag Is completed, throw a
cover or ; a rubber blanket t over
the whole thing and it is ready
for occupancy. ? It is the softest,
springiest and most fragrant bed
to be found anywhere.
"Such a bed is as good for a
long stay as a - short one," because
the balsam will last for, weeks and
will become more and more frag
rant." s,;:5;; ;i-:-J.V?f

deep voice asked.' "This is an old
