SADLER Mr. Flude's Endorsement of the Sadlers As an attraction for Chautauqua programs the Sadlers are distinctly different from any other feature ever offered the Chautauqua public. Dr. WILLIAM S. SADLER was a pioneer in the work of taking the people into the confidence of the medical profession. His medical mission to the people at once met with a splendid response from Chautauqua audiences everywhere. Dr. LENA K. SADLER has been able to make her work more and more effective and interesting by her splendid capability as a public speaker. Very few Chautauqua attractions have ever achieved such an enviable reputation for making good and securing such a large percentage of return dates. It is perhaps fitting that I should be privileged to make public this endorsement (and it is a privilege which I appreciate) because the Sadlers started their Chautauqua career under my management a dozen years ago and have been with me ever since with the exception of one season. In my judgment there is no attraction upon the Platform of greater value, and it would be hard to find another attraction which leaves behind so much of practical knowledge and common sense, as do the Sadlers. (Signed) ALFRED L. FLUDE. Press Comment and Other Information Press Opinion Drew one of the largest audiences of the week. The lecture was sane, sensible, inspiring and helpful. Racine (Wis.) Journal. The Sadler lectures have proved the best drawing card on the entire bill, and last night the largest audience of the season was a compliment to their ability. Terre Haute (Ind.) Tribune. Dr. Sadler's lecture on Faith and Fear was the best thing yet produced on this platform, and we do not forget nor fail to appreciate Gunsaulus, Medbury, Seton and the rest. Shenandoah (Ia.) Sentinel-Post. Dr. Lena's lecture yesterday was one of the best attended sessions of the whole week. The Sadlers are even more popular than last year—because they supply a real need. Charleston (Ill.) Courier. Last evening after being introduced by Dr. Busse, representing the local medical society, Dr. Sadler gave one of his unique lectures which vitally interested everybody and no lecturer who ever appeared at this Chautauqua was ever given better attention. Madison (Ind.) Courier. Dr. Lena Sadler possesses a good voice and is an impressive speaker. Her lecture was one of the best things of this session. The Medical Round Table, conducted by both of the doctors, was filled with splendid things, and many wished it might have continued longer. Farmington (Ia.) Republic. Dr. William S. Sadler and Dr. Lena K. Sadler both spoke to large audiences. It was generally conceded that these addresses were the most interesting and instructive that have been delivered at the Chautauqua. Portland (Ore.) Oregonian. The information dispensed during the Sadler Lectures has been of inestimable value to those in attendance. The Sadlers are in a class by themselves. Ashland (Ore.) Times. The Sadlers in their health lecture certainly made good. This series of addresses were altogether the most helpful talks ever given at Old Salem Chautauqua. Petersburg (Ill.) Observant. Weldon Springs Chautauqua experienced the greatest sensation in its history of eleven years when the Sadlers appeared for the first time yesterday. The people were so surprised and pleased at this intellectual and scientific treat that after both lectures yesterday five hundred people remained for the Round Table to ask questions for over two hours. Clinton (Ill.) Journal. At four o'clock the Sadlers condensed an entire Chautauqua except the music, into two and a half hours, for the audience kept them at work until half-past six. In saving of life and in increased health and happiness this two and a half hours was worth the cost of the entire Chautauqua. Lyceum Magazine, Chicago, (Report of I. L. A. Chautauqua.) Dr. William S. Sadler spoke before an audience of nearly six hundred members of the Women's Club yesterday afternoon. He made a human interest story out of the facts of heredity. Dr. Sadler has the faculty of being interesting and cheerful over even a very serious subject. Rockford (Ill.) Morning Star. Book Reviews This book was written for the general reading public in simple, terse phraseology and with a thoroughness seldom surpassed or equalled even in strictly technical writing. In the 580 pages of this book there is not a paragraph to which serious objection is possible from the strictly medical point of view. No hesitation need be felt in placing this volume in the hands of a patient. We hope that this book will be widely read by the general public. The Journal of the American Medical Association (Chicago). Dr. Sadler is well enough known to the reading public through his writings not to need an introduction here; but in this his latest book he has probably rendered his greatest service thus far. The work is scientific, and so eminently plain and practical that it is a pleasure as well as a profit to read it. Springfield (Mass.) Republican. In the most earnest manner of which one is capable it is the conviction of the present reviewer that the Physiology of Faith and Fear, treating on the mind in health and disease ought to be in every household where English is read. Portland Oregonian. Would that this book could be well nigh universally read. Dr. W. A. Evans, in the Chicago Tribune. Dr. Sadler writes like one who has a thorough command of the English language. His book is a mine of information. The Rochester Post Express. The Medical Round Table The four o'clock hour is devoted wholly to informal discussions and the answering of questions. This feature of the Sadler lectures has become one of the most popular hours of the whole day. It is not uncommon to have seventy-five to one hundred written questions sent up to the platform for discussion. Dr. William and Dr. Lena alternate in answering groups of these diversified inquiries—and the occasion never fails to prove highly instructive and entertaining. The Round Table should be fully explained in Chautauqua programs as an open forum on medical topics, and due announcement made from the platform the day preceding the arrival of the Sadlers. What Mr. Holladay Says of the Sadlers [In twelve years the Sadlers have appeared on but one Circuit Chautauqua System. Read what its manager has to say of their work.] The Sadlers are among the best lecturers ever appearing in the Middle West. I had them in seventy-seven towns during the past summer and wish to state that their work was high grade, constructive, and very profitable to each community where they appeared. I wish to give them an unqualified recommendation. S. M. HOLLADAY. MANAGEMENT COIT-ALBER CHAUTAUQUA CO. O. B. STEPHENSON, Mgr. 630–40 Orchestra Hall CHICAGO Figure Personal Mention Dr. William S. Sadler Surgeon and Author Dr. Sadler is a practicing physician and surgeon of Chicago, a professor in the Post Graduate Medical School and Medical Director of The Chicago Therapeutic Institute, one of the most unique establishments of its kind in the country. The doctor has written a large number of popular medical works, some of which have been numbered among the six best sellers. He is also a contributor to the leading magazines and medical journals, including The Ladies' Home Journal, Collier's, American, etc. The doctor is a fellow of the American Medical Association, a member of the leading scientific and medical societies of the country, including The Chicago Medical Society, the Illinois State Medical Society, the American Public Health Association, the International Medical and Surgical Congresses, etc. For more than a dozen years, Dr. Sadler has been one of the most successful lecturers on the Chautauqua platform. In Chicago he is much sought as an after-dinner speaker and his addresses are reported in the metropolitan dailies of the country. He addresses every year many of the National Conventions at their annual gatherings and during the past ten years has appeared on the platform of nearly every one of the older and larger Independent Chautauquas. Dr. Sadler is not a traveling physician. He positively refuses to examine patients or prescribe for the sick in connection with his lecture work. He is one of the very few American physicians of high professional and ethical standing who have consented to stand upon the lecture platform and instruct the layman in the science of living and the art of keeping well. Dr. Sadler is a good example of his own teachings—he is a hard worker, but a simple liver. The doctor is enthusiastic, sincere, and dead in earnest. His audiences catch his spirit and enter into his enthusiasm for righteous living. He delivers a health message for its own sake—he represents no medical fad, cult, or school. Dr. Lena K. Sadler Physician and Lecturer Dr. Lena (as she is generally known) is a practicing physician and professional co-laborer with Dr. William S. Sadler. She is also a teacher in the Medical School and is Associate Director of the Chicago Therapeutic Institute, besides being a specialist in the diseases of women and children. She is an author and a regular contributor to numerous magazines. For some time she has conducted a regular Sunday department in one of the leading Chicago daily papers, and her advice on health and child welfare has in this way been spread broadcast over the country. Dr. Lena is a member of the Chicago Women's Club, the Chicago Medical Society, the Chicago Medical Women's Club, the National Congress of Mothers and Parent-Teacher Associations, the Illinois State Medical Society, and is also a fellow of the American Medical Association. During the years that Dr. William S. Sadler has given the evening addresses at Chautauquas, Dr. Lena has given the afternoon lectures and assisted in the conduct of the Medical Round Table. She has thus been on the platform more than a dozen years, and is also a popular lecturer before women's clubs, parent-teachers' associations, etc. During recent years she has earned the reputation of being one of the most successful woman lecturers on the American platform. Dr. Lena has been closely associated with her husband in all his dispensary and sociological work, having given special attention to rescue work for women and children and her talks along these lines are both practical and inspiring. Following the practice of her husband, Dr. Lena engages in no medical practice in connection with her lecture work. Dr. Lena is an enthusiastic speaker—possessing an earnest style and direct delivery which enables her to go at once to the very hearts of her hearers. Her lectures are very popular—interesting alike to men and women. She gives but two lectures to women only—all her other lectures are equally interesting to men. Figure
