itself knocked out, otherwise nc

A Well-Rounded Life
Last Friday morning at an earlv

span being at the home of her ever
faithful and loving daughter. Mrs.
Clemma Conger. Few there be that

Chautauqua Cancelled.
The following self-explanatory letter
from the Chautauqua is given the
public. At this late day it is much
better to cancel the Chautauqua en
tertainment. as it would be impossibe
in the short time left to make the
necessary arrangements and give the
proper advertising. As to whether
we will have a Chautauqua next
season will depend upon whether the
people are interested enough in it to
take hold of the enterprise:
Lincoln, Neb.. July 23, 1908— Dear
Sir: We are sorry that it becomes
our duty to inform you that the
Reform Chautauqua Association has
found it necessary to suspend work
for this season. This decision has
been made only after finding our
selves forced to face with many
embarrasments that cannot be over
come for the present. The floods and
consequent delays in transportation:
the sickness and death of our Supt.
Rev. J. S. Tussey’s child and his
absence from the work, and the sick
ness of our treasurer, lias placed us
in a position where it is impossible to
continue, as men to take up this
work are not to be fonnd. The money
advanced by towns where Chautau
quas are not held will be returned
and all indebtedness will be settled in
due time. We begin at once our
preparation for the coming year and
trust we will be able to hold a Chau
tauqua in your town next year. The
Assemblies this year were eminently
successful from a popular point of
view. Every Assembly at which the
matter was' submitted to a vote of
the local Association, voted to take
the Reform Chautauqua next year.
Some went so far as to offer to guar
antee $500.00 in order to secure a re
turn of the Chautauqua. We hope to
see you in due time and arrange for
next session of the Assembly. Yours
truly, Rev. J. S. Tubsey, Supt.
Amos Vance, Sec’y.
