In the meantime the work of excavat
ing for the building will be taken up

ment will contain the boiler room and

worth the entire cost of all However
that is the idea of tie Chautauqua
To provide the best in the whole coun
try at a price so low that the poor
est may attend Yet it will require
an enormous sale of season tickets at so
low a price to pay the cost of such a
magnificent program as will be furnish

prise by subscribing for a few more
then you actually need and then selling
the extra ones to your friends in the
country or near by town Try it for
the good of the cause Season tickets
