CHRISTMAS IN THE NORTHLAND
They Give Twenty Day* to the Cele
bration of the Festival There
—Local Service*.
The Ohristmas season seems to nnd iU
fullest significance in far northern lauds.
The nipping air, the deep snows, the chill
that draws people around the biasing
fireplaces, all promote the Christmas
spirit. But it is not every # country, eveu
In these favored spots, that can have a
king tor a Santa Claus, and a king, too,
*too is big, powerful and old—every inch
a Santa Claus, one might say. Such a
country, however, is Norway and Sweden,
•where King Oscar 11. and his Queen, So
phia, rule.
Christmas at the royal palaoe at Stock
holm is always a great occasion for the
retinue of servants. It is the custom of
the royal pair to remember with a gift
•vary servant, and the palace, with preß
entfl arranged on all rides, presents a
beautiful appearance, especially to those
who are to be remembered.
All the beautiful Christmas customs
found in Scandinavia can not be trans
planted to America, especially the custom
of celebrating for twenty days, but the
Norse folk seem to "set greater store"
by this holiday than many others.
Many customs are retained but of.
jourse in greatly modified forms. Or
dinarily Christmas day is not one of re
joicing and pleasure. It is recognized as
a religious holy day and is as quietly
kept as the Sabbath. The pleasure mak
ing does not begin until a day or two
after.
In all the Swedish Lutheran churches
have early services or "julotta" will be
held on Christmas morning at 5 o'clock
with the customary divine services at
10:30 & m. The children's tree services
will be held at Salem's church, Sunday
evening, Dec. 29, and at Zion's church,
tlu* Ebenezer church and Emanuel's
church. Thursday, Dec. 26.
Services will be held at the Zion Nor
wegian Lutheran church by the Rev. Jo
hannes Halvorson on Christmas day
morning. The children's festival will be
held on Thursday evening. At the Geth
bemaue .Norwegian Lutheran church the
tree festival will be held Friday evening.
JAEGER'S "HEMUfv lUSEV
Review «>t the Work: in tlie Bostou
Herald.
Ibsen is a poei as well as a dramatist,
yet it is as a writer for the stage that
he is best knowu by the curious public,
says the Boston Herald in a review of the
English translation of Henrik Jaeger's
biography of Ibsen. A vague notion of
him prevails among the badly read, as
of a man who defended the individual
against the state, and wrote queer, semi
psychological dramas dealing with hith
erto untouched problems of domestic life.
There is a glimmer of actuality in such
traditions, yet one needs a critical biog
raphy, written with the whole of the ma
terial in view, to amplify this twilight
of information into something like com
pleteness. Continuing the Herald says:
In Henrik Jae-jer's book, "Henrik Ibsen,"
which William Morton Payne has translated,
we get practically everything which even an
enthusiast interested in Ibsen cares to -know
about Mm. it is in auch a volume as this—
the work of a sympathetic fellow-countryman
who can tread the pathway of admiration
without being deceived into the pitfalls of
hero worship—that the vague outlines which
for so many make up the great Scandinavian
dramatist appear with something like deflnite
ness.
The chief £act about Ibsen, as he is here
presented, puts him squarely in th© ranks of
uncompromising individualism . His central
idea—idee fixe, it might almost be called—is
that the individual is suppressed and op
pressed, on the one hand by society, on the
other by the organized machinery of society
which we call the state.
As a lad, this was held by Ibsen emotionally
rather than intellectually; yet as he grew the
feeling worked itself into a creed, until hia
mature intellect made it distinctive of almost
everything he thought and did. "The state,"
he. writes to Georg Brandes, "is the curse
of the individual. • * • The state must
away: That revolution shall find me on its
side. Undermine the conception of the state,
proclaim free will and spiritual telnship as the
leading elements in the final settlement, and
we shall be on the way to a freedom that will
be worth something."
it is this view of the problem of life, be
traying the enthusiast rather than the philos
opher, the impatience tor perfect men and
women rather than the knowledge of nature's
slow processes of sociological evolution, which
tingefe nearly everything that Ibsen wrote.
Ibsen returned to Norway for permanent
residence there several years ago; and by the
prJde with which they claim him, as well as
by ihe honors they heap upon him, his coun
rrymeii *re richly atoning for the mistrußt
tnrt calumny of the earlier years. Even for
eigners go to see him In Christiania, and find
him physically ac intellectually an imposing
ptrsonage.
"The compressed lips, the steady ga.ze
through the spectacles' and the heavy eye
blJMß, pi*c3uce an impression of resolution
i:i which all the features share; and, above
fcli, tuere rises bo powerfully shaped a brow
that one is almost tempted to liken it to the
forehead idealized In the Zeus of Otricoli."
Strtaisth is the impression conveyed by Ib
sen to hii admirers, and he is still strong,
though past the period of active life. He is
never *kk. is uot affected by wind or rain,

American. C A. Thorp of Chicago, has been honored in this way. Mr. Anderson i
is a; native of \ oss. Norway, and when a child came 1 to Chicago with his father, i
He has been ? highly successful with his paper, and is one of the most popular \ Nor

and ixtm an appetite whkh many a younger
man might envy. ■'
Hlb methods as a writer are interesting
and cb.araoteris.Ui:. He turns his material
ever ia his mind a long while before begin
ning to compose. Much of his thinking is
done during long and rolitary walks. He be
gins with a rough sketch, which is elaborated
into a second aud finally into a third manu
script. The task of 'thought elaboration is
with Ibsen a work for the summer mouths;
it la the winter season that he devotes to
actual composition.
. He eat* little when engaged in literary pro
duction; his favorite stimulant is a pipe.
While .writing Ills. plays he lias to pace back
and forth through the rooms. He 1» up at
7 o'clook in the summer, and only a little
later in winter; at the stroke of 9, after a
light breakfast, he is at his* desk. At 1
o'clock lie goes out for a walk. The after
noon he spends la reading." He sups early
and Is early in bed.
Ibsen celebrated ate seventieth birthday in
IS9I The occasion was mads one .for the
•heartiest of celebrations, and 'tributes came
in for tils -work from all parts of the world.
This year be suffered from a severe illness,
which, It Is said, leaves little hope of restora
tion to his former activity. lie Is all the
same believed to be at 'work on his auto
biography, and with this -will be completed
what Jaeger describes as "one of the most
remarkable intellectual manifestation of the
nineteenth, century." .
THE WOMEN VOTED
Thoie of Chrlstlanla Took Advan
tage of Privilege*.
If the women in certain parts of Nor
way showed themselves indifferent to
their newly acquired rights of suffrage,
.those of Christiania were keenly alive to
their privileges. One-half of the votes
cast were female votes. Instead of stand
ing by the women's non-pertlzan ticket,
however, they divided their own strength
and only six women secured places in the
municipal council, two of them being on
the conservative list, two on the socialist
and two being non-partizans.
It is Interesting to note that a husband
and wife will sit in the same council, the
husband as a prohibitionist and the wife
as a socialist.
In Drammen about one-third of .the
votes were cast by women, and in Lille
hammer nearly one-half. Two women
were elected.
The little town of Larvik elected as
many women as Christiania.
In general the conservative and labor
parties show Increased strength, while the
liberal party seems to be losing ground
steadily. 'i^ ",.
SPITZBERGEN COAL.
Capt. Sew Say* It Will Be Used
Extensively.
Captain Henrik Ness, a doughty Thornd
hjem skipper, predicts a prosperous fu
ture for Spitzbergen coal. He has dis
covered it in large fields and it is of the
best quality. A Throndhjem company has
explored the country around Advent bay,
made numerous borings, and doubtless by
next year will be able to place Spitzbergen
coal on the market. The climate is quite
delightful in the summer, and it should
be a popular summer resort. Salmon fish
ing and reindeer breeding would be the
principal industries outside of coal min
ing, and both could be carried on very
extensively. Salmon are often so thick
that the fish can be yanked out with boat
hooks.

Smaiandaknekten.
Sweden ha.6 tweaty-four lands-leap or old
provinces, buit only three of these have been
immortalized in plays. Perhaps there are
more, but only three such plays have been
successful, "Vermlendiugame," •Nerkin
game" and Smalandsknekten." That the suc
cesses on such popular lines are not more
numerous demands upon the fact that, the re
quirements placed on the playwright are
raither high. He must be a man of culture
but also perfectly at home in the every-day
life and spirit of the particular provincial
folk selected for his play. He must know
all ithe old airs and stories, the dances aud
pastimes of the province and have a tempera
ment akiu to theirs. "Verinlendingame" and
"Nerkingame" are well known here, bu.t
"Smalandsknekten" will be performed for the
first time in Minneapolis and the second time
in America, Dec. 29—the Sunday after Christ
inas—by the Swedish Dramatic Society at
Normanna hall. The author of "Smalands
knekten" is now a practicing physician of
Gothenberg, Dr. August Bondeson. In his
college days he was a traveling student of
Swedish provincial life. He spent years in
the various Drovinces of southern Sweden
gathering ,jold songs, legends and traditions
and reciting his finds before cultured audi
ences. August Bondeson is a gTeat observer
and a rollicking humorist. His Smaland play
is an excellent result of his past achievements
and is worthy of the populariity attained by
the other Swedish folk plays.
Would Xot Be n BisJiop.
One of Norway's best known clergymen,
Rev. Andreas Michael Hansen, died at Chris
tiania Dec. 1! at the age of 67 years. From
18*55 to 187:; he labored at Leith, England, as
a missionary' for the seamen, and since JBBO he
has been identified with Trinity church in
Ohristiania. Not only was he a popular cler
gyman but he labored assiduously for edu
cation and the missions for the cause of the
young people and for social purity. He wrote'
much and was for a time associate editor of
Luthersk Kirketidende. For years he wus a.
member of the school ooard. He was thrice
elected bishop and thrice declined, preferring
the more arduous life of a parish pTtMf.
Ituluuee of Trade.
The balance of trade is ■till against Sweden
for according to the report o£ the commercial
college the imports for 1900 aggregated 635,
--000,1)00 kroner, while the exports reached a
total value of 391,000,000 kroner. One source
of satisfaction to the Swedes lies in the
fact that while the increase in the imports
amounts to 6 per cent, the increase ia the
exports is 9.! l per cent.
Sweuska Dagebladet notes the fact that the
increase is due not to ithe quantity but to the
higher values. Based on the figures of JB9B
the imports show a decrease of 7,500,000 kro
ner, while the exports show an Increase of
■«j,300.000 kroner. It is admitted that the re
turns for 1901 will not be bo satisfactory as
those for last year, for tn the main Sweden
lias bought at high prices and sold at low.
HobrllvolY'si Comniaad.
Governor General Bobrlkoff has commanded
that the Finnish reserve and also tho volun
teer army organization be dissolved early
next year. The intention of the Russian
government undoubtedly is to replace these
troops with Russians or Cossacks.
Colonel Schauman, of the Finnish Dra
goons, and thirty-eight officers have resigned
their commissions on account of the insults
heaped upon them by Bobrikoff. In addition,
twenty-four officers of the Life Guard Sharp
shooters' battalion have resigned out of sym
pathy. The manly'course pursued by these
officers has won the approbation of the Fin
nish people.

Justice Jerome at (.'he»s.
A reader ofTheJournal column
■wants to know .how good a chess player is
Justice Jerome, the "fighting judge," who
recently was elected district attorney of Nev
York on the fusion or anti-Tammany ticket.
Mr. Rounds, a member of the Flour City
Chess and Checker club, of this city, and a
class-mate of Jerone at Amherst, says that
Jerome had the name of having made the
highest record ever wen in mathematics at
Amherst college up to the time of his
graduation. Mr. Rounds, now ever, is noi
familiar with Jerome's college chess record.
As a fighter and a long-headed and brilliant
strategist in everything he undertook, says
Mr. Rounds, Jerome was always a leader.
His special forte was in getting the professor
of the class in mathematics, philosophy of
some other favorite study, into a wrangle on
some abstruse point and oftentimes doing
him up.
The chess editor of the New York Sun,
however, has made a study of Jerome in
the chess room of the Manhattan Chess club,
and gives {his interesting account of the
fighting judge as a chess player and as a
barytone singer:
Jerome is one of the many players who
like music when engaged in the play, and
as the treasury of the club could scarcely
af/ord to have an orchestra in attendance at
the clubrooins, the members have to supply
their own music. Delmar, the veteran,
sings daily to members all about what the
"coloring" sergeant used to say; another
member furnishes that pretty ditty, "Karo
linschen, ach! Warum deim nicht." Lip
sehuetz often tries his hand at the second
Raphsody by Liszt, or some popular tune
from "Tannhauser"; Don Ricardo gives them
"The Flowers That Bloom in the Spring,
Tra la," and so on. All of this, however,
cannot be compared with the music rendered
by the "fighting" judge. As soon as he
begins singing In a barytone voice—unfor
tunately, there is a tremolo in it which some
of the critics abhor—everything is quiet at the
club and only a few nervy members attempt
to join in the chorus. The justice does not
confine himself to English songs only. One
of his favorite tunes is a French one, a lively
air, by means of which he has carried away
the club audience. Many an adversary has
to lose his game to the juslice when Jerome,
as a last resort in a game that looked utter
ly hopeless, began his captivating Gallic
chanson.
Jerome, however, is a chess player who
must be reckoned with in off-hand contests.
His favorite defense is the Sicilian. He has
made this opening a special study, and he
plays it with considerable skill. Of course,
he is not a "master," and he lacks in cau
tion." He will go on with his aggressive
combinations, hardly looking ahead, and if
the adversary finds a flaw in the attack the
justice will be beaten. Nevertheless, his
style is rather interesting; the more so as
he "moves" rapidly. Preparations are now
being made at the club to give Jerome, after
hia return to the city, some sort of a recep
tion, when it is intended to honor him as a
politician, chess player and singer simul
taneously.

NOTES.
(a) It la unusual nowadays for white to ex
change pawns as white thereby loses his
chief advantage, namely, to hold black in a
cramped position. B to Q3, B to KKt5 or P
to KO are more common.
(b) Blackburne cays here: "Black proposed
a draw at this-point, but although secure o°
the first prize I declined."
(o) "Obviously Pxß," says Blaokburne,
"gives black a draw by perpetual check."

One of the strong factors in Pillsbury's
phenomenal blindfold play in which he has I
conducted as high as twenty games at once I
is his memory. His powers in this field were i
tested the other day by Professera Merriman
and Edwards of Leuigh university, who con
cocted the following list of thirty jaw-break-
Ing words, which Pillsbury immediately re- I
; peated forward and backward: Antiphlogis- I
i tine, periostum, takadiestase, plasmon, am- I
brosia, Threlkeld, streptoccus, staphelococus, I
minrocuecus, plasmodium, Mississippi, Frei- j
helt, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, athletic*, hovel, !
Etcherbcrg, American, Russian, philosophy
Pf&t, Potgieters' Rost, salmagundi, oomisille- I
cootsi, Bangmainvate, •Hohlechter's nek, Man- I
I zlngama, theosophy, catechism, Madjlsoona- i
lops. One secret of Pillebury'B extraordinary
memory fearts is a memory system, as he
on^e told The Journal editor. But this
memory system, his oiwn invention, he de- :
clines to divulge. It is his own property and '
patent for his own exclusive use. He has
made special study of memory systems and
made adaptations and improvements for his
particular business. But his phenomenal nat
ural memory is doubtless the foundation of
ilie art' Octal system employed. Hi» blindfold
scheme for carrying a long list of games at
once Is the subject of long experiment by him
until he hit upon an effective system. '
I Champion Lasker played a two-game match
of one sitting with Janowski, the French
champion, under the auspices of the Manches
ter Chess Club, i the other day. Lasker won
; the first, an ■ Evans; the second, a bishop's
gambit, being drawn, although. Janowski was
a sawn, ahead. ■ . , -

(a) Just as the massive bunch of electric
lights on the Chicago Inter Ocean building

12 p. m.), Mr. Hefter pushed the man to
square 3, and iby a clever maneuvering, for
which he is noted, started to wind the game

failed; 8-3 seems to draw, while 18-15, 10-26

Trophy Plays.
The deal (which The Journal publishes
this week is one of (the best arguments that
can possibly tie. offered in support of regu
lar play In trophy matches. It Is always
advisable for a team playing i together as a
club four to have an absolute understand
ing of the rules, and to follow them under
all circumstances.
Following this precept and the use of intelli
gent discussion of practice plays is the best
receipt extant for that most desirable com
modity ' known as team work. This
deal was played at twelve different tables and
but one slam resulted, the variation being
five tricks at most of the tables. We might I
add that the slam was made by a Minneapolis
pair, who played the old-fashioned but ab
solutely regular long suit game. The cards
■were dealt toy West and were distributed as
follows:
Trump, spades king. Leader, North.

COMMENT.
Score—N. and S-, 0; E. and W., 13.
Trick I—North opens the same suit that was
led at every table.
Trick 2—The Minneapolis player led the
ate of trumps in the face of the turned king
in his partner's hand, fearing that west
might have but the lone king, and being
certain that he would unblock if he had less
than three in the suit, as the lead of the
ace with the absence of the king in the hand,
tells his partner absolutely that both the
queen and Jack are present.
It is absolutely necessary for East to retain
<the trump lead as he has not a possible re
entry. If West holds but th» single king the
chances are still about four to one that East
can draw all the trumps, and if West holds
two trumps and unblocks the play is almost
absolutely certain to be successful.
Tricks 8 and 4—East draws all the trumps
and the remaining play.ia very simple.
This is the way in which North and South
scored five tricks at the next table:

COMMENT.
Trick 2—East fears his partner will block
bis suit if he leads the ace, and so drops
down to his fifth best and gets his suit
blocked by his partner having but the one
trump.
Trick 3—"West leads his clubs as he has the
ace or diamonds for re-entry. Most players
would prefer the heart lead, which would
possibly save one trick.
Trick 4—North is perfectly right in giving
uo with the ace of hearts, for, If the laad la
regular, be and his partner bare all the -
