For the first time in the 51

will offer a "costume" play, or
romantic drama, to its patrons.
Beginning with the usual bargain

Graustark" will occupy the stage
at this playhouse for a week.
Everybody has read George
Harr McCutcheon's pretty love
romance, and since its dramatiza

popular favor along with "When
Knighthood Was in Flower."
The story concerns the adven

pretty American girl, who goes
abroad to visit Princess Yetive of

pretty romance with a young

of court in lending assistance to
her friend, the princess.
Miss Florence Bell will be seen
as Beverly Calhoun. Leo IJnd

We did not make the boat —
we ourselves are made from the

We are divided up into nations,

at as an original question, wliat
are our rights and what our
duties to our fellow Passengers,
and the great property—for the
Ship is really our property—
Which our children must be made

We have learned that as ani

plants, or on other anima?s
which have been made of plants

10 things which must De round

three or four that need give ns

Let us now look Into the hold
of the Ship and see how we are
supplied with potassium.
But first, what is potassium?
It is the element which gives its
name to potash—wulch anyone
may make from the lye of wood
ashes. It is found in the ashes
of any field crop, when the plant
Is burned. It is plain, men, if it
is a part of every one of these
I lants, that It must exist where
the plant can reach It, or no crop
can grow. Potassium is not round
in the air as is nitrogen—so it
must be obtained from the soil.
In the grain of a hundred
bushel crop of corn, there are 19
pounds of potassium. An aver
age soil contains enough at this
rate to make 2 500 crops. No
need to worry then? Well, 18 It

If we are wasting what the Pas

it make any real difference thai
we shall not be present to wit
ness their sufferings? It does
not seem so to me. I think we
should be as alive to suffering In
Europe or Asia today, as if it
were in the next room; and as
solicitous for the happiness or
the world's Passengers a thou
sand years hence, as next WMk.
Especially as our acts make Tor
or against that happiness.
There are many lands even
now which need potassium. We
import millions of dollars of ;t
annually. As "kainif and in
other forms it is a very important
article of commerce.
The lands which need It most,
are not yet under cultivation to
anything like the extent which
the future will require. As trie
Passengers on the good ship

Instead of swarming out against

true. The land of swamps is
usually rich in nitrogen, in phos

a drained swamp, and you will
often see the corn turn yellow In
July, and you will note a failure
of yield. This spot is not helping
to feed the Passengers. The thing
it lacks Is potassium, so, as we
drain our swamps, and as we ex

If so, did you notice the great

Department of Agriculture has
discovered that we have in this
weed a possible source of potash,
to the value of $40,000,000 &

And out of the weed, too, would
come by-products like iodine,
