—Penn Oan Sell 7,(M10 Seats
Philadelphia, Oct. 22.—At a meet-'
ing held yesterday at'ternoou at tiio
residence of Dr. ,1. William White,
1810 South Rittenhouse square, an
agreement was entered into for the
Army-Navy football game for this
Captain Matthews and Captain May-j
er represented West Point, and Lieu-1
tenants .Commander Fairfield and Wil
, l iains represented Annapolis.
The agreement was to the effect that ;
the game was to be played at 2 p. M.i
on Saturday. November"2B, on Frank-'
iiii Field: that each academy should
have 11,500 seats (the exact number!
ottered them last year at the Polo!
Oroynds); that each party to-the agree-!
ment should be at liberty to dispose of
its seats as it saw tit, provided that in
case of the sale of seats the net pro- i
ceeds should be divided between the I
Army and Navy Relief Societies, and I
that there should be a general commit- i
tee of supervision, consisting of the !
superintendents of the two acaiiemie.il
and Dr. White.
There will be between 7,000 and 8.-
000 seats for the University of Penn- i
sylvania to sell for the benefit of the 1
Armv and Navy relief funds. The last
time the game was played on Franklin
j Held this sale netted' $24,000. This i
' will be reduced to about $15,000 this'
I year because of the increased supply !
of seats awarded to the two academies.!
it w:'s agreed that the luucheou

I should be omitted, as it has been found
that they would often rather spen ! 1

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 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.

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
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
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
