4. in the world-wide success, "Alt
Heidelberg." The company is the
strongest German company that ever
traveled in America. "Alt Heidelberg"
has been produced by them in Chi
cago, Milwaukee, also on the road, and
always received the unanimous praise
of both press and public. The Milwau
kee Evening Wisconsin writes about
the production: "'Alt Heidelberg' has
been produced many times before Mil
waukee audiences, but Sunday night's
presentation deserves to rank with the
best of them, and it certainly far out
shadowed any of the English presenta
tions which have been biven it. For
It takes a German cast to give the at
mosphere to this deligraful play of
real German student life. And Curt
Stark as Karl Heinz, heir apparent to
the throne of Saxe-Karlsburg, enacted
his role In a way that was excellent to
a degree. He was in truth tin- young
man. whoso life has been blighted by
the close atmosphere of court life, and
who at 2u has not even had a glimpse
of the sunshine outside the cold
walis. The other characters of the
play were in decidedly competent
hands. Emil Marx distinguished him
self as .luettner, the brokon-.lown doc
tor of philosophy, who comes back to
his Heidelberg and his youth as the.
companion of the prince. Herin Meli
zer as I-utz, the chamberlain, played
his role with a delicious humor. Ger
trude Senger deserves applause lor her
Kathie. There is no need to tell again
the story; and the delicious humor and
the exquisite pathos of it all I cannot
describe. Suflice it to say, that with
jt merry student songs, its giorious
tlilcs of life unfettered by the minor
things of life where even princes of
the blood can be happy as common
mortals Alt Heidelberg offers a
sWfct and genuine picture of the joy
"The Midnight Flyer." One of the
lug scenes in 1 lie Midnight Flyer is
the ship scene, showing the deck of the
steamer Winchester, the storm at st
and the realistic shipwreck. Over r0.
(miii toot of scenery is used for this one
scone alone, and it is said to be a mar

play will bo presented at the Illinois

scenes, and between the scenes Profes

with a selection by the Wenuerberg
chorus, and Mr. Laurin's numbers will

Song" (Mendelssohn-Liszt); scene from
Parsifal, "March to the Holy Grail"

and "Rhapsodie Hongroise" (Wagner-
Liszt). Augustana is particularly for

the nitrogen in the en:iio
nois, and the highest authority on this
aihject, is Professor Cyril G. Hopkins
ot our experiment station. In his ad
dress at the Illinois Farmers' institute.
he spoke substantially as follows con
cerning rotation ot crops:
The only kind of soil treatment in
common use that is even believed to
benefit the soil is a crop relation in
cluding an occasional clover crop, hut
that rotation is a means of depleting
the fertility, and the clover used in
this way in grain farming serves only
as a most powerful soil stimulant, leav
ing the soil poorer with each passing
rotation until crop yields become re
duced, clover being the first crop to
fail in this system. At this point land
values usually begin to decrease. I'n
der the successful clover system of
grain farming the land owner may re
ceive one-half of a (!0 bushel crop of
corn, which at :!5o a bushel will return
$10.50 per acre ."0 cents for taxes and
per cent interest on $200 land, but 10
or mi years after the clover system
tails the land owner may be receiving
only one-third of 30 bushels of corn per
acre, which with the same price and
lax would leave him only $3 5 per
cent interest on $00 land.
Where Itollllimi In Sufficient.
C rop rotation alone is sufficient to
maintain the fertility of some soils at
;i low yielding power, as on sloping
land whose surface soil is washed
away at least as rapidly as the fertili
ty is removed by crops and whose sub
-oil is as rich or richer than the sur
f:ice. Such lands are valued at $10 to
$110 per acre.
"I cannot comprehend how it is pos
sible io .maintain the common Illinois
:rairie and level uplano at their pres
out value and productive power if we
continue to remove from these lands
larger amounts of phosphorus and ni-
rogen than are returned.
Kflert of n Four-Year notation.
'Suppose we are practicing a four-
vcar rotation: Corn two years, oa-'s
with clover seeding the third year, the
lover for hay and seed crops the
Tourth year. Let us assume yields of
loo bushels of corn iht acre. 100 luish-
of oats, and four tons per acre of
lover (such yields have been prodtic
d). The four crops in such a rota-
ion would remove M pounds ot pnos-
ihorus per acre from the soil, or if
.ve leave the stalks on the land, (:
xxinds of phosphorus. The principal
ype of soil in the Illinois corn belt av-
rages about 1,200 pounds of phos-
ihorus in the first seven inches, and
his entire amount of phosphorus would
e sutncient lor only o years oi sucn
arming. On the other hand, suppose
vith this crop rotation we can secure
'rom the soil each year only 1 per cent
if the phosphorus contained in the
irst seven inches; this would be only
!2 pounds a year, and would necessar-
ly reduce the crop yields much oelow
he amount suggested.
'nil (I re I nlrita l'lioxphorun In Upturned.
"On the ordinary soils of Illinois, ulti
mate failure is the only future for this
system of farming, even if we consider
the phosphorus alone. But this deple
tion of phosphorus may be made up by
returning that element to the land in
'ione meal, in rock phosphate, or In
sufficient amounts of farm manure.
Neither ins Mtrojien he Maintained.
Three crops of corn in this rotation
would remove 290 pounds of nitrogm
ner acre. If all the nitrogen contained
in the clover crop is taken from the
air, the clover roots and stubble would
apply only 80 pounds of nitrogen to the
soil. Here will be a net loss of more
than 200 pounds of nitrogen in this ro
tation. It is not possible to maintain
the supply of nitrogen by such as sys
tem. Where this rotation is success
ful for a time, it is due to the fact that.
the soil nitrogen has been drawn upon
year by year, while the chief effect of
the clover has been to extract phos
phorus from the soil for its own
growth and for the use of succeeding
"(If the yields were only half those
assumed above, they would not be re
duced so rapidly, but it would only be
a matter of a little longer time when
such rotation would fail)."
Where the Clover Mlrni;ri (ioea.
On land capable of furnishing nit
rogen lor even a 50-bushel crop of
corn, the clover crop will undoubtedly
draw a third of its nitrogen from tho
soil and not more than two-thirds from
piant is removed in the tops, the roois
and stubble will leave no more nii.-j-
geu in the sou than the plant iak"s
from the soil.
If all the crops grown in tho rota
tion are fed, including the corn stalks
and if three-fourths of tile nitrogen '..s
returned in the manure, we have miT
fioiolil to replace that removed in the
corn and tints crop. Possibly the gram

And not a flake was placed on the market until We were satisfied that it was perfect.
The public quickly showed its appreciation. It was such a delightful change from
the tasteless, insipid breakfast foods.
So the d emand hecame enormous widespread, o ur mills were soon overtaxed.
We ran far hehmd our orders. Never before had a food gained such popularity in
so short a time.
Then came the ever-waiting imitator. In the space of a few weeks the market
was flooded with miserable counterfeits.
Being wholly unable to reproduce the flavor, the pirates joggled with the title
called their worthless products "Just as good" Corn Flakc3. Others stole the name
outright, for unfortunately the law does not prevent.
But there are ways by which you can be absolutely certain of getting the genuine.
They may fool you once by the name; they may fool you by the package; hut they
cannot fool you in the taste after you once eat the original product. And remember
