Lyceum and Chautauqua world, and
one cf the attractions looked for our
Lyceum Course, appeared in the lead

where he was recognised as a star in
the vaudeville world. Caupolican's

and he presents lecture entertain

but a scholarly discussion of the
Indian and Pan-Americanism coupled
with rare song and story.
