Property owners are expected to cut the weeds on their property. In case this is not done the city. will order them cut and the costs will be assessed against the property. A summer rate will be allowed for water to be used on lawns. In order to take advantage of this rate it ts necessary to apply to the city treas- urer for a permit. The ordinance prohibiting the storing, selling, keeping or exploding of any firecrackers, caps. pistols or any explosive used for celebrating is still in force. The council considered the advisability of abolishing this or- dnance, hut it was thought best to leave it as it is at present. Ordinance No 191 was passed, pro- viding that all premises within cer- tain limits in lhe city of Palouse be required to connect with the sewer if Mtuated ,so that the connection can be made, and if not so situated that they construct and connect with a septic tank, Tile oily council granted The Fourth of July committee permis- sion to construct benches along the the winners of these con-. 75 13rize is offered to (:he win- lean].

CHAUTAUQUA TO BEGIN MONDAY COMFORTABLE SEATS ARE BEING MADF.--CARVETH WELLS TO LECTURE--0THER ENTERTAIN. ERS WILL BE ENJOYED. Monday afternoon the first number of the Palouse Chautauqua program will be given. This will consist of a musical entertainment. The evening program will consist of impersona- tions and character sketches by A, Mather Hilburn and a musical enter- tatnment by the Apollo Duo, This will constitute Monday's program and each day's program will be stronger and stronger as the Chau- tauqua draws toward the end. On the third day will appear the Keigh- ley players in "It Pays to Advertise," the greatest comedy success in years. The program Is varied, each day's en- tertainments being different from the rest. Everything from comedy to the most learned discourse will be pre- sented. The children are not forgot- ten and a fine program Is worked out for their special benefit. From the scholar's standpoint the three outstanding features of the en- tire program will he "Burns of the .Mountains," Carveth Wells of Lon- don and Wltepakie's concert orches- tra. The life story of James A. Burns-- the man who educated the feud out of the hearts of the Kentucky moun- taineers-is a story of achievement. Born In the mountains of Kentucky, educated in the mountain ~chools of Went Virginia, where his father had taken the family to escape the terror of the feuds, with no resources save his own physical strength mad an abiding faith in the God he followed, this sterling American planted a col- lege in the mountains of Kentucky to save her sons from fratricide. He has challenged the attention of the nation by his unselfish labors for his fellow men. If Burns is like any man of our past or present, it Is Abraham Lin- coln-tall, rugg~l, angular of body, his language simple, clear and unaf- fected, every word ringing with sin- cerity. The very simplicity and ele- mental strength of his speech will thrill you when you hear his life story on the second night of Chau- tauqua. Carveth *,Veils. formerly lecturer at Imperial college, London Univer- sity, England. brings to Chautauqua audiences a remarkable illustrated story of exploration work in one of the least known lands on this round earth. For six years he was engaged by the British government in the haz- ardous task of exploring the inter- ior of the Malay Peninsula. In this wild jungle land of the tropics he was cnt off from ~ontaet wtth every- one but natives for a half dozen long years. It was a country of tigers and tarantulas, scorpions and centipedes, peacocks and pythons, white ele- phants and black panthers, five kinds of flying animals, great apes and Jun- gle men. The story of his experiences during these lonesome years In this unclvil|zed land are thrilling to say the least. A notable musical event is sched- uled for Chautauqua patrons In the coming of Wil, epskie's concert orches- tra, with Olive McCormick. coloratura soprano, as soloist. For many years these splendid musicians have con- stituted one of the star attractions of big Chautauqua circuits, both eaat and west. Meyer Witepskie, who heads the orchestra, is a pianist and director of note. The long associa- tion of the members of his company produees a eombination whose play- ing Is characterized by correct inter- i~rett~tion and perfect unanimity. It is an organization of soloists. Their repertoire is extensive, ranging from the great classics to the popular airs of the day. The committee on seating has ar- ranged for plenty of seating. Ele- vated seats will be installed with back~ -rod foot rests, and a quantity of citairs will be provided. This is the last week to secure ~ickets at 25 cents a performance. A ~imited number of reserved seats are .m sMe at the Palouse pharmacy and Mecklem's drug store. Ic Cream Served on Grounds. The Methodist Episcopal Ladies Aid will serve ice cream and lemonade on the grounds during Chautau(lua,
