WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN, Lincoln, Neb.—An educator, an entertainer, an inspiration. SUBJECTS OF HIS LECTURES EACH DISTINCTIVE AND RADICALLY DIFFERENT MARVELS OF MIND Presents the discoveries of science on this important and absorbing matter. New; instructive; full of humor and entertaining features, yet decidedly practical and helpful, one of the great lectures of the day. The experiments hold even children with attention riveted. A question box at the end is a deeply interesting feature. WONDERS of the WORLD WITHIN Sequel and equal to the above. William James, LL.D., Harvard University Exceedingly good work. Atlanta, Ga., Constitution Powerful in analysis, right in conclusions, unique in interpretations. Thoroughly interested his big audience at the Grand Opera House, presenting psychological matters in a simple fashion all could grasp. Students of psychology present were greatly pleased. Pittsburg, “Leader” One of the most original thinkers in the country and a master of eloquence. PLAN—PLUCK—PUSH Death to drifters. A mosaic of poetry, practicability, power and patriotism. Geo. R. Wendling, Cosmos Club, Washington, D. C. I shared in the enthusiasm of his audience, and felt the great charm of his personality—the remarkable spell of his eloquence. Asbury Park, N. J., “The Journal” A man of striking personality, bubbling over with animal spirits and an eloquence and humor that was the delight of his audience. BOUNCING THE BLUES Musical and mental merriment. A barrel of fact, a bushel of fun, a bite of philosophy. Emerson DePuy, Des Moines, Ia., Manager I shall not attempt to describe this lecture. Unquestionably one of the finest on the platform. One marvelous passage in it regarding the Deity is alone worth going miles to hear. Chicago Press Club, John J. Flinn, President If we have laughed at the Club's entertainments, Krebs told us how the laugh did us good. His 'Bouncing the Blues' is sufficient to show why he is one of the most gifted platform lecturers. THE HIDDEN HAND Unique in every respect—in subject matter, presentation and scope. A standard lecture, defining the duty and destiny of America on the great PROBLEM OF UNIVERSAL PEACE. Patriotic, educational, seasoned with wit and humor. Presents a field of thought that is ABSOLUTELY NEW. Prof. M. B. Stevens, State Supt. of Public Instruction, Annapolis, Md. Remarkably instructive, timely, inspiring; ranks among the best. Springfield, Mass., “Republican” This lecture stands unrivalled in the field. A genuinely unique subject for the platform. Scholarly, eloquent, forceful, new. TWO SNAKES IN EDEN Makes life more livable—labor more lovable. Arms for action. Practical; helpful; entertaining withal. The demand of his audiences for it in book form induced its publication. Prof. W. N. Ferris, Prin. Institute, Big Rapids, Mich. Offers subject-matter of real value. At once rivets attention. Gave universal satisfaction here. Bloomington, Ill., J. H. Shaw, Supt. Chautauqua So many requests for a repetition of this lecture that a special meeting was crowded in our last day, attended by over 1,000 people, who stood one hour and a quarter listening. HOW IT IS DONE The imposing mysteries of Spiritualistic mediums and mind-readers reproduced, then explained. A deeply absorbing entertainment, of exceptional value as a warning against the startling frauds now practiced upon the public. J. H. Hyslop, LL.D., N.Y. Just what is needed to-day. Wabash, Ind., “Plain-Dealer” Explained mysteries that had baffled the public for years. Chicago, H. A. Parkyn, M.D. A reliable, careful observer, entirely unprejudiced. COL. GEORGE W. BAIN—Dr. Krebs followed one of W. J. Bryan's greatest efforts, where it seemed no one could take hold where Bryan left off; but he not only held his audience (hundreds of whom were standing), but made a great and lasting impression. Only Senator LaFollette Exceeded His Time Record OBERLIN, O., “News” —Dr. Krebs lectured here three hours, and then the audience remained one hour more asking questions, so deep was the interest. Cleveland, O., Catholic Club, John A. Nally, Esq. Proved so interesting that, after the lecture, which was two hours long, they kept him busy for one hour longer answering questions. Magnetic, masterful; held all absorbed. Cincinnati, Unity Club Course, Harold Ryland The Grand Opera House audience was held by the lecture and subsequent questions for two hours and a half, and then were anxious for more—which they got by his return engagement the next season. Philadelphia, Brown College Preparatory School Thank you very much, Dr. Krebs, for your kindness in taking my place at the Brown Preparatory School, greatly to its advantage. JOHN WANAMAKER. Dr. Krebs elicited the enthusiasm of entire audience. He possesses an unusual faculty for blending instruction and entertainment with telling effect. ALONZO BROWN, Principal. Philadelphia, City Club, Chas. S. Prizer (3 Seasons) I have heard nearly all the noted lecturers of my time and country, but was more profoundly impressed by Dr. Krebs on 'Marvels of Mind' than I have ever been by any other address. Philadelphia, Germantown Cricket Club, R. Lea Perot All greatly interested, and expressed their pleasure at having things which hitherto greatly mystified them so definitely explained. Philadelphia, “Inquirer” Entertained the Old York Road Country Club for two hours. The most interesting and unusual of the meetings held by the club. Chicago, Birchwood Country Club, Lloyd G. Kirkland, Esq. Krebs in 'Bouncing the Blues' was the top notcher of our entertainments. He will draw again and again those who hear him once. His third season here. Chicago, Business Science Club, W. H. Wade, Pres. Third appearance. Possesses the rare art of coupling the higher faculties of the mind with the practical affairs of life. Humor seasons it all. Instructive, profitable, entertaining. Y. M. C. A., Reading, Pa., J. H. Edwards, Genl. Sec. Thoughtful, practical, and truly inspiring. In serious or humorous, he is equally effective. TWO HOURS AT MIDNIGHT!—Commerce, Texas; State Normal School; W. L. Mayo, President. Train late; began 10.20 P. M.; ended 12.20 A. M.; yet was so forceful and interesting that not one showed signs of restlessness. You can't go to sleep, even at midnight, when Dr. Krebs is talking. AT MIDNIGHT AGAIN!—Theo. S. Fettinger, Newark, N. J. It is unusual to hold an audience at midnight after a banquet with toasts; but Dr. Krebs did it here, for an hour and a half. Portland, Ore., “Daily Journal” His unusual subjects, plus his magnetic presence and eloquence, make him one of the most remarkable platform speakers. Los Angeles, Cal., Prof. Geo. R. Crow, Manager Long Beach Assembly A man uniquely qualified. He is a master, and delighted the great audiences here for two days. Elbert Hubbard, East Aurora, N. Y. Lectured here twice. A great speaker. Shows a sure insight into the heart of things that is bound to make the world better. Racine, Wis., “Daily Journal” His third year here, and he has more and stronger admirers than ever. Jackson, Mich., “Citizen Press,” (Chautauqua) 'Marvels of Mind' was a revelation. Just such lectures as his are worth the price of a season ticket. Jacksonville, Fla., “Times-Union” A bright, happy exposition of truths of the highest standard. Made point after point with telling effect. The human mind, always a subject of fascination, is made still more so when discussed by a man of Dr. Krebs' genius. Scholarly, yet simple in diction; vivid, yet forceful. There was not one in the large audience who was not sorry to hear the close—beautiful and earnest though it was. Augusta, Ga., C. G. Dillsworth, Mgr. of Course 'Had the largest crowd of the season. Door receipts were splendid. Audience deeply impressed. Memphis, Tenn., Star Course, Y. M. C. A., C. H. Hamilton, Gen'l Sec. Held everyone absorbed. A stream of requests for a return engagement. J. S. Stahr, LL.D., Ex-Pres. F. and M. College and Pa. State Teachers Assn., Lancaster, Pa. Great descriptive powers, keen observation of life, sound philosophy, common sense. M.MAIN Secy. to Dr. Krebs Hotel de France New York City, N.Y.
