Piasa Chautauqua.

Piasa Chautauqua is a summer re-
sort that is well known, and should be
better known among the people of the
Mississippi Valley. It is fast becom-
ing a pleasure resort for people living
within hundreds of miles. Its situa-
tion is between tftoof themagniticent
bluUs that line the Mississippi river
aliove Alton, 111. Tliese bluffs are fa-
mous in liistory as the home of the
"Legend of the Piasa." and are noted
the world over for tJie 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 an the railroads of
Central Illinois and Missouri. 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 with trees and flowers.
There are long walks and beautiful
grass plots'for the benefit of picnic
parties. A spring of water so cool and
refreshing that it rivals tliat of tlie
'•Old Oaken bucket," is constantly
bubbling up from the side of one of-
the bluffs. 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-
tofts (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 the bluffs
the Missouri and Illinois rivers may
be seen. On the Mississippi the boat-
ing and bathing opportunities are es-
pecially good. All steamers stop at
Piasa Chautauqua where excursion-
ists take their outing. Once a'year
the Piasa Chautauqua Assembly irieets
.and for one month gives a program or
Literature. Science, and Mus.i(i. This
piogram is made up by the.iftost emi-
nent entertainers obtainable. An au-
ditorium built with splendid acoustic
properties affords an opportunitv for
tliousands to see and hear the best lec-
tures, entertainments and musicales
tliat 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, the joy of the
whole earth is Piasa Chautauqua, a
haven of beauty and rest.

When in Jerseyville call on

Jerseyville, III,

— On triiiiis. in Ciiri-iag-eg, in boats
and on font, the people came Tuesdaj'.
to hear Sam Jones. Mr. Jones is quite
entertaining, in fact, he has become
fam(}us on account of hiss ability to
entertain. His lectures are every-
where in demand on account of his
magnetic influence. The name of
"Sam" on a literary pro^'rani marks a
day on which a lar^re crowd may rea-
sonably be expected. Smith, Brown,
Jones, are said to ije popular names,
but it is I lie "Sam" which makes the
name of a certain member of the Jones
family a great drawing card. Soil
was that yesterday (the 17th) brouglil
great crowds to hear Sam Junes. Mr.
Jones began his lecture in His usual
mirth-iuspiriug way and kept his au-
dience thoroughly interested from be-
girming to end. He has a peculiar in-

ice over his heai'ei's for at one time

rOoay be seen in their. eyes wh^n

gent before smiles lighted up

but most of tlie time loud

filter and ringing applause may be
heard. II- W. J. Ilarn touched the
^pttef side of the people's natures,
Samuel Plieips Leland pleased the lit-
erary tastes of his hearers, tlie Arious
made people forget tliemselves in lis-
tening to their sweet singiirg. but for
mirth, music, and genuine eiijoymeht
you should liear the voice of Sum

Jones as he flashes forth his wit, hu-
mor, sarcasm, and good advice. His
subject. '-Manhood." was handled
without gloves, and the burden of iiis
ihouglits was for ••I\I.en wholiave wills
and minds of their own.'' No true
citizen cwuld iiave listened to his lec-
ture without being inspired to nobler
ruanhood and a more zealous patriot.

— Louis Carr. Geo. McKenney and
Edwin Duttjekl represented the Black
Hawk Club here last nig-ht. They
had uot beon here long before we
knew that "they were the braves of
the Black Hawlc Tribe.''

— Mrs. Yerkes will have a stone wall
built on two sides of her lot as soon as
the Assembly closes. In time of liigh
water this will prevent her property
from being flooded.
