Piasa Chautauqua.

Piasa Cliautauqua is a summer re-
sort tliat is well known, and should he
better known among the people of the
Mississippi Valley. It is fast becom-
ing a pleasure resort for people living
witliin hundreds of miles. its situa-
tion is between two of the magnificent
bluffs that line the Mississippi river
above Alton, 111. Tliese bluffs are fa-
mous in history as the lionie of the
'•Legend of the Piasa," and are noeed
the world over for tlie grandeur and
beauty of their scenery. Thirteen
miles above Alton, on the Illinois side,
Piasa Chautauqua lies between two of
the highest and most beautiful of
them. It is convenient to .St. Louis
and all stations on tlic railroads of
Central Illinois and Mis.souri. The
steamboats of the Mississippi land ex-
cursionists wlio invariably find it a
place of contentment and enjoyment.
It is laid off into streets and avenues
that are lined witli trees and flowers.
Tliere are long walks and beautiful
grass plots for the benetit of picnic
parties. A spring of water so cool and
refreshing that it rivals that of the
"Old Oaken bucket," is constantly
bubbling up from the side of one of
the bluff's. This spring has a well
known reputation for its purity and
excellence. The climate of this resort
is everything that could be wished for:
not too hot, not too cold, no mosqui-
toes (contrary to the usual summer re-
sort) nights cool and refreshing, and
an atmosphere invigorating, clear and
pure. Scenery is never found more
beautiful in America. From tlie bluff's
the Missouri and Illinois rivers may
be seen. On the Mississippi tlie boat-
ing and bathing opportunities are es-
pecially good. All steamers stop at
Piasa Cliautauqua where excursion-
ists take tlieir outing. Once a year
tlie Piasa Chautauqua Assembly meets
and for one inonlh gives a program or
Literature, Science, and iiusic. This
puigrain is made up by the most emi-
nent entertainers olitainable. An au-
ditorium built with splendid acoustic
properties affords .m opportunity for
thousands to see and hear tlie best lec-
tures, entertainments and miisicales
that can be inaugurated. The scen-
ery of Piasa Chautauqua is superb, its
surroundings grand and stately, its
climate all that could be wished for.
Beautiful for situation, tlie joy of the
whole earth is Piasa Chautauqua, a
haven of beauty and rest.
