Expenses at Chautauqua
The Chautauqua Tariff
Chautauqua is an educational institution, specially chartered by the State of New York, and contains no element of private profit. Every penny of surplus must, by the charter, go toward permanent improvements. Chautauqua is supported by her gate fees (tuition for the public lectures, concerts, etc.,) by the special tuition fees of students in the Summer Schools and Home Reading courses, and by a percentage on rentals, hotels and other privileges. All payments are made at the gates. No collections are ever taken. Admission at the gate entitles the person to attend all exercises, save the classes in the Summer Schools.
There are numerous cottages at Chautauqua where board may be obtained at reasonable rates. The prices range from $6 per week upwards. Accommodations with plain board may be obtained for $5. It should be understood that the accommodations at $5 are not in the best-equipped cottages, which cannot receive guests at so low a rate. For detailed information see page 39.
Rooms may be rented in rooming houses and private cottages from $3 to $6 per week, and table board found elsewhere.
THE CHAUTAUQUA OFFICES,
A small room may be rented, and the visitor board himself at a low rate. There are general stores where all food supplies may be purchased.

OTS on the map above show that one hundred and fifty Chautauqua assemblies thirty more than a year ago will hold sessions this year. Estimated attendance will exceed one million persons. Such a number of summer gatherings is a striking commentary upon the influence of Chautauqua ideals. A late issue of the Wisconsin State Journal, under the caption" America's Great Typical Council," contained these statements regarding Chau

tauqua Assembly influence on national ideals and public sentiment:
First, as to the character of the audience.
The single admissions" at these summer assemblies vary in types but the " tenters" and cottagers are the bone. and sinew of our American life. They are not the highly cultivated; they surely are not the ignorant, the needy, the raw material of anarchy. They them at the larger Chautauquas near a great city, or differ in intelligence and polish, as one may inspect as they may be the supporters of some smaller, retired assembly; but generally speaking they are the plain
people whom Abraham Lincoln appreciated. The New York Chautauqua is distinctive. Its cottage population of seven or eight thousand are people of importance at home, as indeed are the patrons of the smaller assemblies; but the former come more from the cities. They have more polish. One and all, however, of these summer assembly folks are earnest, God-fearing, homeconserving, and eager for culture. At the average Chautauqua, as one looks out on a big afternoon audience, he sees men with babies in their arms, tired but happy women toting camp stools, determined to miss nothing these people bearing the unmistakable mark of the farm. Most of them would cut an uneventful figure in a city drawing room. But the men likely "fought for the Blue," the women know what's going on in the mission field, and their children, reared in simplicity and in the fresh air, and at a fireside where ambition burns, will later give the children of the drawing room a spirited race for a place in life.
But not alone the farm supports the summer assembly. Preachers and teachers from the country districts bring their families and enjoy every moment of "the season"; city people drive over when perhaps Hamilton Mabie is to talk or some great singer's voice is lent by fashion to the masses (thanks to the syndicate system of engaging talent); but the tent population heeds not the occasional visitors. The permanents carry water from the well, cook their meals in the open, chat with their neighbors in shirt sleeves or wrapper, and sing gospel hymns in groups on the shore of the lake, undisturbed by the comments of the more conventional visitors. It is a study in the nature of true happiness. And while the critical visitor may detect flaws in the soloist and insist she has seen her best days, or indignantly marvel that Sam Jones is called back every season by the "avaricious management," these simple folks are just wise enough to enjoy what is set before them without grumbling and go home to cheer many a long wintry evening with the recollection of what they saword heard.
These assemblies are not only informing, but they do much in promoting a healthful national life. Those who attend the sessions year after year, as many do, hear the best speakers of the times-the great publicists, preachers, literary men. Most of the urgent questions are threshed out on these forums. No one need be provincial who is within reach of a Chautauqua. For a few dollars a week a whole family may enjoy a tent and all privileges, and some of these visitors miss nothing. They are up at 5:30 A. M., as at home, attend lectures all day, and go to bed at 10:30 o'clock following the band concert, wearied but refreshed. Speakers invariably get a response from such an audience when they touch on the things that make for good homes, clean politics, and national honor. It is about the only general audience in America where the most advanced temperance speaker may let himself out without feeling a cold chill creep toward him from the benches.
The Puritan has left his marks on these people, but the New England admixture is now but a trace. In the western Chautauquas are Scandinavians, Protestant Germans, the Hollanders, and others. The spirit of the Puritan is marching on, disseminating among the people through the forums and the temples of these assemblies his best ethical and social ideals. There are assemblies, under Lutheran auspices, where the W. C. T. U. has set up its tent and evangelistic services interest great numbers. The summer Chautauqua is a most useful force in amalgamating people in declaring the best spirit, in asserting the most intelligent patriotism, in reiterating the truth that this is a Christian nation.
Much as has been said of the decline of the lecture, experts in the assembly business assert that this is in error. New Chautauquas are being established; winter lecture courses are multiplying-the outlook for the public speaker was never brighter.
These summer assemblies have done more to break down inter-denominational lines than any other force at
