.utauqvM and Reconstruction
t During "the war • Chautauqua
ranked high among thoae institu
tions whose part it was to maintain
the nation's morale. It furnished a
magnificent part of that b uyant,
never-give-in spirit of do-or-d iene*B,
that has made November 11th uu
Chautauqua gave to the country a
cheerful and patriotic program. Its
wholesome entertainments helped to
neutralize the horrcra of war. Its
stimulating discussions of the na
tion's most vital problems brought
intelligent and united action. Its
oontiioution to our nation in those 1
tragic days moved President Wilson
to estimate it, "an integral part of
our national defense."-
After the war, what ? The old
world has been destroyed. Out of 1
the fragments oh the old the new
must be built. The old pattern is
forever gone. The new architure
has not yet arrived.
Chautauqua's opportunity at> this
particular time is unique. Never in
its history has the country had
greater need to think clearly. The
great national and international
questions which are calling for solu
tion can be solved correctly only by
clear thinking on the part of every
And Chautauqua -8 the people's
university and the one fie forum for
discut son in America. Its program
is patriotic but non-partisan, its
teachings are always clearly moral
but never sectarian. Without re
gard to class, creed, party, or social '
stratification, its gospel is always of
genuine uplift and of broadeniug
Without this free discussion De
mocracy is impossible. Russia and
Germany stifled free and open dis
cussion. The one is in chaos, the :
other in the bitterness of defeat
after an ill-advised attempt at world
dominion. Chautauqua will help
preserve our priceless Democracy by
the only sure way, a free and frank ;
discussion of the country's problems.
Thus Chautauqua, always and for
ever important, is this year more
vital to the community than ever be
fore. It will create that community
interest that banishes individual
selfishness. It will bring together
all the people of the town to consider
with the nation's keenest minds the
world's biggest problems. It will
be a steadying force for the right
kind of progress in this Reconstruc
tion period. It will leave the com
munity with better men, nobler wo
men and happier children.

Two Blockade Stills Broke Up.
Last Friday Sheriff C. D. Story
and Deputies H. J. Stockard, E. A.
Henslev and Sledman Isley captured
a still in Morton township near old
Shallowford. It was about sunset
when they came upon the outfit. It
was in full blast and fully equipped.
When they reached the still no one
was on the spot, but they got a
glimpse of a man who left in such iv
hurry thaX he left his hat and coat.
Tie oflicars have a pretty good idea
as to whom the outfit belonged. Over
500 gallons of beer were turned
loose, and 3 bags of meal and 3 gal
lons of whiskey «nd a good copper
still were taken in charge.
Another stilt,was captured yester
day afternoon by Sheriff Story, Depu
ties Stockard and Hensley and Boyd
Trolinger in l'leasant Qrove town
ship on the J. Calvin Wafker farm.
From appearances it had been in
operation for some time. A run ap
peared to have been made the night
before and everything was in readi
ness for another run. The still,
which was destroyed, was a galvi
nized iron alTair. About one thous
and gallons of beer were tdrned loose
and three bags of meal and a hag of
malt were seized. It is not known
who operated the still and no one
was seen near tbe place.
