There is no question about the real

' , i . - . i. .i , -
aim neau ui uie aiiruimiuji ui-i.aiiuiciii :
tha co'lege cf agriculture, will spea1: ;
at the afternoon session Tuesday. In j
all his soil investigation and addresses '
Dr. Hopkins stands most emphatically i
for a system of farming that may be'
1 permanently maintained. He works for
the largest crop and the greatest profit 1
for it, but never stops with these re-
tults. holding as the still greater es- j
sential that the land shall be so farm-1
ed that if Is growing a little better, a I
little richer, ail the time, instead of j
becoming a little poorer each year. In (
showing how this must be done he ex- i
pejses the fallacy of many common no-1
tions of the day and gives sound in- j
st met ion of untold value to the pres- j
ent and coming generation of farmer. ';
A valuable feature of Dr. Hopkins'
address at this time wiil be a review o:'
the soil experiment work in Illinois.
