sent minstrelsy In its up-to-date form
by the largest organization ever toured
In this country. Mr. Primrose has
shown good judgment in surrounding
himself with a host of well known
comedians and vocalists. The stage
settings for the first part are of great
magnificence, the costuming through
out is costly. In addition to t'ie large
number of vocalists and conn iians. a
complete operatic orchestra of soloists
tinder the direction of Professor
Charles Prokop are carried.
"It Happened in Nordland." "It
Happened in Nordland" concerns it
self chiefly with the adventures of Hu
bert, u waif, who has become an as
sistant to Dr. IJlutz, au itinerant den
tist and beauty doctor. The elopement
of Queen Elsa, of the mythical king-
queen leads to the exposure of the
masqtieraders. The curtain falls with
Katherine and Hubert forgiven their
deception and about to return to
America. The libretto is clean and
clear cut. replete with wholesome hu
mor, free from every suggestion of
horseplay or vulgarity, while the mu
sical score by Victor Herbert, the pop
ular composer, is much more preten
tious than that usually offered in mu
sical comedy. Rising at times to the
level of operatic excellence, rather
than mere jingling popular musical
setting of extravaganza. Such valse
movements and sensuous Spanish
rhythms, such luscious jungle echoes,
tropical melodies, and soul stirring
marches, cne hears only too rarely
nowadays. In all, "It Happened in
Nordland." may be classed as one of
the very highest class attractions on
tour.- Playgoers will do well t secure
their seats as early as possible as
"Nordland" plays to "standing room
only" wherever it has been presented
on tour. At the Illinois Monday.

CALVE AS CARMEN.
Springfield, 111., Jan. 19. Reorgani
zation of the Illinois National Guard
by the formation of a division with a
major general in command, the rank
to be created, is the object of a bill
which is -expected to be presented to
the general assembly next week. The
object of the change is to place the
state soldiery cn the same system as
that of the United States army. The
measure is .expected to stir a breeze
among the militiamen because of the
large number of new staff officers it
provides Tor, and among the legislators
because it means additional expense.
At present the National Guard is
made up of three brigades of infantry,
one regiment of light artillery, one
regiment of cavalry, one company of
engineers and one company signal
corps. The bill for the formation of a
division keeps the line officers about
as they are now. but provides for a
major general's staff that includes II
officers above the rank of major, three
of the rank of captain, a sergeant ma
jor and six sergeants.
Similar to Kormrr Syntem.
It places the staff formation on a
scheme similar to that in vogue tip to
the lime the National Guard code was
amended four years ago. when the
number of colonels and other officers
who attended the governor em state
occasions was reduced to 10, four from
the state at large, with the rank of
colonel, and six detailed from the Na-

The President on Foreign Soil.
For the first time in the history of
the United States the chief executive
has gone beyond the confines of our
country and has set foot on foreign
soil. The Panama canal was the im
mediate purpose and motive of the
visit. In 1853 was the first time the
public had an opportunity to test the
merits of the famous Hostetter'3
Stomach Bitters, but since then it has
established an unequaled record of
cures of stomach, liver and bowel dis
orders. In June, 1906, the pure food
and drug commissioners passed their
famous pure food bill, and the fact
that the bitters upon analysis was
found to be compounded strictly in ac
cordance with its provisions proves it
to be a safe medicine to cure Indiges

The plan is said to have the approv
al of the executive committee of the
Illinois National Guard, and in case it
goes through, one of the exciting fea
tures it promises lies in the selection
of a major general. Under the divi
sional formation one of the four pres
ent brigadier generals would be ad
vanced to the new rank.
Some OppoMition to PInn.
Some of the officers of the state
soldiery are said to oppose the new
scheme on the ground that regimental
camps and drills are better for tho
troops than a division encampment.
Camp Lincoln, they joint out, where
brigade drill was held lastyear, is
much too small for division drill pur
poses, and it is the largest available
drill ground in the state.
