To Quot a or amp May try a a erection of auditorium will begin Tely 1 promises to become one of the great educational institutions of the West familiarity with the Marvel Ous beauties of this or Gipp have led to a failure on tha part of the great majority of a. Citizens of Colorado Springs and r cd ctr cities to look for. He a Begaii lies or to appreciate Many of the add naps that to one less familiar with Foje Region Are easily apparent from he first glance. A a. A a a this is probably the. Great reason a Jav there Are few who realize that a de 0f the most Beautiful and perfect foe Nii spots in this entire Vicinity lies i Midway Between Manitou and. Coio Ido Rity 10 the soutl1 of a he Garden if the oods and within a of Wuh unfired a a Etc the main thoroughfare Manitou in june. Tau qua a notable one and one calculated to give the Garden of the gods Chautauqua a National name but for some reason there has been a Lack of understanding on the part of the general Public and business men As to the value of such an Assembly established Here. One result is that the Sale of lots which at. First promised to be enormous fell for some reason far. Below the expectations of the association promoters delaying Many of the improvements that were to have been made upon the grounds and resulting also in the handsome auditorium a fumed for immediate erection being delayed until next year. Perhaps this delay has been Bene the extensive plans for making the Chautauqua grounds Oie of a the most interesting Parks in this part of the state. A wide Boulevard a leading up from Manitou Avenue a few Hundred feet West of Barros Garden of the gods station takes the visitor directly into the grounds where even though within a few Hundred feet of modern cottages the fantastic work of nature has remained As undisturbed ils if the foot of Man had never trod on the soil. And there within one minutes walk of the Street below lies a building site that has up to this time escaped observation and from where is to be had the most Beautiful and comprehensive baby Grundy near the auditorium. It is the spot selected by general Wiliam j. Palmer As a gift to the peo Lle of his Home City As a site for. A Ebay Wauqua Assembly which he Hopes Jome Day will become As important a feature of Colorado life arid Progress any similar movement m any part the United states. The gift was to National Chautauqua association if Colorado an association composed if a few business and professional pen of this City and which has started jut to give to this Region a repute on As an Educ amp Trina i Center which will it use the expression of Rev. Or. Fran is of Illinois a few Days ago / rival be reputation gained by the-4jbautau-Lua of Chautauqua Lakebe Vork Quot he Chautauqua associate Imp. Is in no Jense a private Enterprise has been supposed by the uninformed. Several months ago the association Legan to Lay its plans for the. Movement and engineers were placed on site purchased by. General pal Ber. To Divide the tract into residence pts with streets Parks Etc., ready for be expected occupants a cottagers and the buildings of the. Association. Plans were secured for a costly Liidi prium to be erected at once and the baking of the program tor the. Assembly and the organization of a faculty or the summer school were begun. 1 president Robinson of the Assoria. Ion. Has been untiring in his efforts have the initial year of Thev Chau. Facial in one Way and will result in More extensive improvements and better interest in the future. The recently adopted plans of the association contemplate much More extensive parking broadened boulevards landscape gardening larger allowance for lots and Many features which As the grounds fill up with cottages and buildings will be of marked value in the establishment of a permanent resort. As yet Little has. Been accomplished at the grounds except in the Way of engineering but from the natural formation of the surface Little a need be done except to prepare for the auditorium executive buildings and the tents that will occupy the Park this summer. Already the site for the auditorium has been graded for the carpenters and within a few Days the framework of the building will be seen at the top of Point Lookout within 1.000 feet of the main thoroughfare and upon one of the grandest Sites in Colorado. The necessary grading Ani Street work with laying of water Pires and arrangements for lighting will have been accomplished Long before the Assembly opens in August. The Sale of lots which has been begun upon the new plat is to be pushed from this time the citizens being asked to assist the. Association in the work Apdy the Money a received being placed in the improvement fund to carry out panoramic View of Colorado Springs Manitou Colorado City and the Valley of the Fontaine qui Bouille to be found anywhere unless it might be from the mountains across the Valley. The entire 130 acres which is now the property of the Chautauqua association is a most picturesque place. From the site of the temporary auditorium the Hill gently slopes to the eastward with a drop of 300 feet allowing a gradually widening View of the Busy City of Colorado City in the Valley the fantastic Rock formations that intrude even into the line of houses further on the Valley of the Little Creek stretching away into the Plains and along a the mountains to the. Southeast. Across the Valley lies the interesting red Rock Canon and further up the Peculiar rocks of the a a hog backs bristling along the Valley toward the foot of the mountains like a. Great Serpent still further Beautiful Cheyenne Mountain Blue and Majestic rises sharply from the Plains disappearing in the line of the Range lying Westward and becoming a part of a most interesting picture. Tier upon tier the Range slopes into midair the greens and blues and reds of the landscape extending Westward to the great mass of rocks old pikes Peak which from this View Point is seen to the Best possible advantage arid without interference from the Foothills. ���oi�oi1p a a flak f a a 8� a fantasy. Sandstone Hill having been Cut up until looking Down into the Valley one can imagine that he is in the midst of the Breakers upon the Shore of a blood red Ocean that is tumbling about him. It is a remarkable optical effect and one not to be found anywhere but Here. Looking toward Manitou one sees far below a rolling Hillside carpeted at this time with Green where the engineers have a Laid out a Little City of the future and where the surface conditions Are unusually Good for building purposes. Then one�?Ts1 wanders off toward the Garden of the gods where the Odd. Rocks Cut the sky line As far As one can see the picture extends Down to the very feet of the onlooker. Naturally formed avenues Lead up the slope from the rolling portion of the grounds into the very midst of the fantastic rocks of the Garden and these avenues can with very Little labor be made into excellent highways. Near the top of Point Lookout stands Chautauqua Rock a monster red formation that rises sheer i0.1 feet from the Hillside and extends to the top of the Hill fully 1,000 feet to the northward and forming with a Butte a few Hundred feet to the eastward a sort of Valley with a plateau beyond. It in upon this plateau that the permanent auditorium is to be erected next year. The great red Chautauqua Rock Al to satisfy the demands for modernized Comfort and convenience. Surely if the National Chautauqua association of Colorado possessed no other element of Success the site chosen is one that will attract the attention of every visitor and commend the Assembly grounds As an Ideal spot upon which to locate a summer if not a permanent Home and there is every reason to believe that the Chautauqua movement will result in the up building of a sub division that will soon take on the importance of a municipality. As to the financial conditions to be met by the Active members of the Chautauqua association this year there is a matter of $6,000 in expenses the Advance Sale of tickets and Maks definite Promise of the intention of the people and ability of the three cities to take the Lead in this great self educational move spent. And to hold it against All competitors unless it be the Chautauqua Lake association the Par ent from which sprang the greatest educational movement Ever established for the people. In answer to 50,000 advertising circulars catalogues and magazines that have been sent out into every state in the Union have come hundreds of inquiries regarding both the summer school and the Assembly and already the enrolment for the school is surprisingly Large for a newly established institution. There Are teachers Hanl tou Avenue prom Entrance �,0 Chautauqua grounds. A a nestled at the very foot of this great Mountain is a pastoral scene the City of Manitou looking like a quaint bit of Alpine scenery painted upon a Canvas. To the northward More mountains the passes into the Hills made historic by the redskins and beyond this still the tops of the receding Hills. Below Point Lookout stretches a marvelous picture. From the top of what has been termed the a a sea. there appears a Billowy formation of red Rock bearing plainly the ravages of the glacial. Period the great red Hough not. Stowing a foothold upon die Eastern face is split into sections on the West and by careful climbing it is possible to reach a Point within a few feet of the top and obtain a picturesque View of the Garden of the gods through a Crevasse in the rocks. This climb Nash. Been called a the Ravine a arid is interesting and just dangerous enough to tempt the venture some. A the temporary auditorium this year. Will rest upon a natural Amphitheater with a Sharp slope Down to the platform making hearing and seeing easy to make it More interesting to visitors the site is surrounded with All kinds of quaint formations in red Sandstone nearby is baby Grundy a Monument fully 40 feet High while All about Are Odd formations including the pulpit Breakers sea Wall Etc. No wonder a recent visitor exclaimed a a god made this spot and preserved it from invasion to be Given Over to a Chautauqua where thousands will find rest study and recreation amid his the close proximity to the Street car line makes it easily accessible As a country Homei it is protected from winds except from the South it commands a View that is unsurpassed in this Region it is surrounded with material for nature study and. Sufficiently those to the neighbouring cities site of the auditorium. Before them and which the people of the three cities Are asked to guarantee. To establish a Chautauqua which will assume an important place among the educational movements of the United states Means plenty of hard work the risking of a Little capital and the constant Energy of Many men. Colorado Springs and her neighbors have not had the reputation of doing things in an unfinished manner and the promoters of the Garden of the gods Chautauqua Assembly and summer school should have no reason to believe that in this matter there will be any difference in the conditions. The munificence of general Palmer in making possible this great movement should not be allowed to stand alone and although through a failure to understand the value of the movement at the Start there was some delay there should be no further question of the future and every Loyal citizen can find Opportunity to do his mite toward carrying out the work. Last week a corps of representatives was placed in the Field to canvass the cities for Advance subscriptions for season tickets. That canvass has thus far borne but fair results but it has aroused Many hundreds to a knowledge of the work in hand and a second canvass is to be started in a few Days which should result in a guarantee fund for the association through from states As far East Al Omo already enrolled and every state West from the Mississippi River is represented by from one to 20 students. Many of these have requested the erection of Tenta upon the Chautauqua grounds and will spend their time there during the month of the school. Many who Are coming to attend the Assembly have also requested Tenta and it is probable that there will Rise up quite a City of cloth where now there Are Only fantastic rocks and gorgeous scenery. Silk culture in the South. The division of entomology of the department of agriculture will make extensive researches this summer in the realm of silk cult yrs a and for this purpose has lately Importe a Large number of silk worm eggs from the great silk producing districts of Southern France. These eggs Are of the size of Ordinary Bird shot and of a Pale Olive Green color. They reach the office of the division in Little Gauze bags and Are immediately placed in a warm sunlit place protected from the cold where in the course of a week or so they Hatch. Congress will shortly appropriate $10,000 for the investigation and promotion of silk culture in ill a South and or.
