When you begin to think of
painting your house and barn come
and let ua figure the cost of paint

form of Sled That I* Not Commonly
Hud in Any Other
The Sweden hare mad* a fine art of
sl«dding. Their fastest sled Is called
the aparkstotttng and is an exceeding
ly light sled that the inhabitants of
Norrland, a prorince situated at the
north of Sweden, employ during the
winter aa a meant of locomotion.
The use of It now extends through
out Sweden, where races upon this
original yehlclc constitute one of the
most highly appreciated sporu of win
ter. Among other people of the north.
In Russia, Scotland and Germany, this
■port is entirely unknown, a fact that
is somewhat extraordinary, consider
ing that the sparkstottlng can be em
ployed In all countries In which the
rigors of winter permit of the use of
The spiarkstottlng Is constructed en
tirely of Norway spruce. It It
straight, of elongated form and weighs
no more than 30 pounds. It consists
of two runners, curved upward in
front, and 6V£ feet In length. To each
of the runners is fixed an upright that
seryes both as a point of support and
• tiller. The entire affair is connect
ed by two or three crosspleces, on©
of which supports a light seat placed
12 Inches above the surface.
The Norrland sled differs perceptibly
from the Vesterbotten type, in which
the runners, which are much shorter,
are not shod with iron, but are well
greased or impregnated with boiling
tar. The lightest and best type for
racing is the one manufactured at
Umea, Norway. In order to push the
sparkstotting the racer, hearing with
both hands upon the extremities of
the uprights, places his left foot upon
the runner to the left, and then with
the right foot strikes the ground at
regular intervals so as to propel the
If the snow Is very hard and the
racer is not provided with spiked
shoes it is necessary for him to fix
steel calks to the soles. In recent
times a horizontal bar, breast high,
l;as been placed between the uprights.
This modification renders the steering
easier and besides permits of govern
ing with a single hand. Upon a level
route the ■parkstotting reach* a
pretty good speed wit hi nit great effort.
An experienced racer, when the
snow is in good condition, can easily
attain the speed of a horse on a troi
In ascents it is necessary to push the
sparkstotting or to drag it, but ihis
does not cause much fatigue, owi
its lightness and the Feeble urface in
contact with the snow. With this sled
it is possible to run very fast.
BIG INSURANCE BUSINESS.
Industrial Companies That Do a Busi
ness Bunning Up Into the
Thirty-three yeara ago, a New York
insurance man's attention was attract
ed one day by a rather derogatory refer
ence in the Massachusetts insurance re
port to the work of an Knj ■! 1 s:j com)
which was insuring the Uvea of work-
Ingxnen and children on a large scale.
To-day, says the Chicago Chroi
that man is president of one of three
similar companies which s--tnn<l pledgi d
to pay in the future more than $2
000,000 to more than 10,000,000 ol peo
ple; which are disbursing $500,000 a
week to the policy holders in .sums aver
aging perhaps $100; which haw assets
stored up of nearly $160,000,000, and,
most notable of all, which coiled b>
hand $250,000 in ten-cent pieces. Such
a growth within the working life of one
man is amazing even in this ape of in
dustrial miracles, and an examination
of its details heightens the wonder,
Strangely enough, though one family
out of every five in the I'niied States
has one or more industrial policies on
some member, the average well-in
formed man knows nothing what* vet
about the system or its workings. But
ask your household servants, and the
reliances are you will fmd that at leas)
one of them is paying ten cents a week
to a company which guarantee* her
|100 or so in case of death —enough to
pay for the funeral ftxpenses, This was
the foundation principle of industrial
insurance and is still the dominant
reason for its existence—the avoidance
of a burial at. public expense or of
leaving a burden of debt upon one's
family. The average cost of burial for
1 child under two years is from $12 to
$25; the average insurance on children
between one and two years old is
$19.48. At the age of ten the average
funeral expenses is $50, the average
industrial policy is $59.94.
From this initial idea, however, the
business has developed "cash dlvi-
Jdends" and "paid-up policies," until
! now its payments of claims alone
amount to $25,000,000 a year in sums
ranging from $15 to $1,000.
Electricity in Egypt.
A consular report quoting from a
leading German trade paper, says the
imports of electrical, telegraphic, tele
phonic, etc., apparatus Into Egypt dur
ing the years 1901, 1902 and 1903 were
valued at about $210,000, 1276,000 and
$338,900, respectively. Of these Great
Britain led with the lion's share »ach
year. The writer, commenting on the
foregoing, advises anyone wishing to
sell to Egyptians to establish repre
sentatives of the first class in Cairo
