AMUSEMENTS MAJESTIC This afternoon and evening, "A Girl of the Mountains." Saturday afternoon and evening, Vo xel's Minstrels. Monday and Tuesday and Tuesday matinee, October 26 and 27, '•The Kound-Up." Thursday afternoon and evening, Oc tober 29, "Freckles." ORPHEUM Every afternoon and evening, high class vaudeville. COLOMAL Daily continuous audeville and pic tures. "A Girl of the Mountains" "A Girl of the Mountains." a inelo drama in four acts, which comes to the i Majestic this afternoon and evening, j tells the story of a girl who had lived I with a hermit in the mountains ever j since she was kidnaped when a young; , ster. The hermit finds a gold mine and the girl is taken to New York, where with the hermit's millions she is enabled to get into society. Her ex periences there and her final return to her mountain home and happiness, are cleverly told by a capable company. Adv. Why the Minstrels Parade To the inquiry, "Why do the min strels parade!" John VV. Vogel, man ager and proprietor of the Big City Minstrels, —fifty all told, —frankly re sponded: "Primarily for the adver tisement. Why olse should I equip the baud and company at such a large ex penditure, if the display of the full strength of the company did not count for something? Who first put the min strels in street parade? That skilled manager and exceedingly clever anil original comedian, William W. New comb. He used at times to hire band wagons of local liveries, and 'brass band the towns' as he termed it. He carried lettered blankets for the horses. Were the performers uniformed? To the extent that each and all were decorated with a stove-pipe hat." John W. Vogel's Big City Minstrels will ap pear at the Majestic Saturday matinee and eveuing. Adv. "The Round-Up" The stage would be much better off, were there more plays like "The Round-Up" which Robert Campbell is presenting this season by arrangement with Klaw & Erlanger. This play, while it enjoys and justifies the repu tation of being the most stupendous production on the American stage is at the same time one of the sweetest and most wholesome ev6r offered for an au dience's approval, and its tender and compelling story of the Southwestern border line is told in a delightfully pleasing manner. The cast is an excep tionally clever oue, while the scenic production is most complete and ef fective. ''The Round-Up" will be seen at the Majestic Theatre, for two nights, beginning Monday, with a special popu lar matinee on Tuesday. The scat sale opens to morrow, 9 a. m. Adv. At the Orpheum Those who are about town to hear the topics of the day are acquainted with the fact that Johnny Dooley and Yvette Rugel are at the Orpheum. One of them is as funny as the other is good to look upon and when we see them on the stage together we gasp to our selves, my what a combination! Or bet ter still, what a comparison! Dooley makes us laugh in spite of ourselves, not because he is handsome, oh, no, but because he is ridiculously funny. And pretty Yvette is petite and dainty, and has the voice of a prima donna many times her size. Dooley's assets as a comedian are chiefly those of loose ness and homeliness and to express it politely, slimness. He sings and dances, mostly gestures, and while he capers about, his foot lands on the other side of the footlights, sometimes under the curtain, and everybody wonders if he will fly next. Then he asks Miss Rugel to ask him a few questions and he promises to tell a joke. And he tells some good ones. As a pleasing combination Dooley and Rugel are hard to beat. They are cer tainly favorites at the Orpheum this week. Those who have seen them once are going back to see them again and that's pretty good proof of their mer its. Dooley and Rugel offer one of the sterling hits grouped with Ijew Dock stader, also with Lucy Gillette, abso lutely the most entertaining juggler ever seen at the Orpheum, and a wealth of other good Keith hits. Adv. At the Colonial Another big vaudeville bill bursts on our vision at the Colonial to-day. Four quite well known Keith acts of variety and merit are slated to appear, headed off by the Three Musical Ellisons pre senting a picturesque musical novelty that has won favor in many of the more important theatres. Also James Kennedy and company, who appeared at the Orpheum two seasons ago, are booked to offer their new coinedv sketch called "Jack Swift." Mahoney and Tremont will present a sotig and patter skit called "At the Department Htore" and the Aerial Barbers, in sen sational aerial gymnastics, will provide the thrills of the offering. To-day's pro gram in moving pictures looks to he well worth while also. Adv. 12 Years for Wife Slayer Wilkes-Barre, Pa., Oct. 22.—John Taylor, of Hazleton, tried for killing his wife and convicted of manslaughter, was sentenced to 12 years in the coun ty prison. His wife was found dead in her bedroom with a bullet in her head. Taylor's defense was that his wife com mitted suicide. 980,000 Fire in Pike County Scranton, Pa., Oct. , 22.—5. 8.

The report is acvompanied bv a map in colors showing the location and extent of the different tvpes of the thirty three series of soils found during t'lio survey. Dauphin County Is Included he area surveyed covers the nine teen counties of Southeastern Pennsyl vania, including Mon i tour, olumbia, Tuzerne, Monroe, Car bo" Schuylkill, Dauphin, Lebanon, '. • Letoiglh, Northampton, Bucks Montgomery, Philadelphia. Delaware' | < heater. Lancaster and York, with a j totnl area of 10,254 square miles. Corn is an important crop over tihe entire area, the yield varying greatly. \\ heat is also grown generally, with the llagerstown soils in the limestone valleys giving the highest yields of i thirty bushels per avre. Potatoes are grown on nearly ev ery farm in the area, but only on the Berks soils of Northampton and Lehigh counties and in some regions on tlhe Chester soils is flhis crop an important step m the rotations item ot in tihe farm income. Usually only about enough land is devoted to the crop for home use and ipossiibly to supply the local market In Chester county potatoes form an im portant part of the farm products. Po tatoes are generally well fertilized 'but greater diligence in tilling and careful spraying will serve to materially in crease the returns. Tobacco Important Crop Tobacco is a very important crop on the Hagerstowu and Conestoga soils in Lancaster and York counties, and is grown to some extent in Chester, U»b anon, Berks and Dauipihin counties. While alfalfa is grown ho some ex tent in every county, t/he acreage is low. On well-drained soils two or three cuttings are obtained, giving an an nual yield of from three to five tons per acre. The products of the dairies of the region form a very large part of the casih sales made on the farms. Fruit growing is being developed on the Dekalb soils of the section, good results (being obtained. With care and fertilization these soils should give good results with this industry. The shale, sift loam and loam of the Dekalb series are devoted to general crops with good yields, corn averaging about 50 burfhels, oats 40, wheat 20 and potatoes 100 bushels per atcre. The soils are generally deficient in lime and respond to applications of manure anil the plowing under of green crops. The Berks soils mapped during the survey are devoted to tihe general farm crops of t)he region. Fruit is grown to a considerable extent, apples and reaches doyig well. Hagerstowu Loam Strongest Phe 'Hagerstowu loam is considered the strongest and most. productive soil of the area. It is devoted mainly to general fhrm crops. Com averages 50 bushels, oats 4 5 bushels, wheat 25 bushels and hay one and one4ialf tons per acre. Lime is needed to obtain fhe 'best, results with the ConeStoga loam. Oop yields are hig'h on this soil, corn aver aging from 50 to 60 bushels, wheat 25 to 30 bushels and oats 35 to 50 'bushels per acre. The Chester soils of the section are the most important and extensive series of the Piedmont region of the State. They are extensively and typically de veloped in Chester and Delaware coun ties. Drainage conditions are usually good. They are well adapted to gen eral farming and to dairying and give good results with potatoes and fruit, especially apples. The Penn soils are well adapted to general farm crops, yields on 't'he loam being: Corn 100 bushels, oats 30 bushels, w*hea't 20 bushels, rve 25 bushels, hay 1 y a tons and 'potatoes 150 bushels per acre. WOMAN VAIN 2000 B. C Vanity Box 4,000 Years Old Recoived at U. of P. Museum Philadelphia, Oct. 22.—That woman painted and powdered 4,000 years ago is shown by a complete vanity box. dated 2.000 B. C., just received at the University of Pennsylvania Museum. It is a gift of the British School of Achaoology in Egypt. The'box, which is of delicately carved ivory, contains receptacles for paints and powders. There is also a glass con tainer, probably used for perfumes.
