Torm of Sled That Is Not Commonly
'^I'^yjjß*! In Any Other . . .
The Swedes hare mad* a fine art of
sledding. Their fastest sled ia tailed
the sparkstottlng and Is an exceeding
ly light sled that the inhabitants of
Norrland, a proTince situated at the
north of Sweden, employ during the
winter as a means of locomotion.
The use of it now extends through
out Sweden, where races upon thl»
original vehicle constitute one of the
most highly appreciated sport* of win
ter. Among other people of the north,
ia Russia. Scotland and Germany, this
•port is entirety unknown, a fact that
is somewhat extraordinary, consider-
Ing that the sparkstottlng can be em
ployed in all countries ia -which the
rigors bt winter permit of the use of
The sparkstottlng is constructed en
tirely of Tforway spruce. It is
straight, of elongated form and weighs
no more than 30 pounds. It consliU
of two runners, eurred. upward In
front, and «H feet in length. To each
of the runners is fixed an upright that
serves both as a point of support and
a tiller. The entire affair Is connect
ed by two or three crosspleees, one
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 wfth boiling
tar. The lightest and best' type for
racing is the one manufactured at
tfmea, Norway." In order to push the
sparkstottlng the racer, bearing with
both hands upon the' extremities of
the uprights, places his left foot upon
the runner to the left, aad 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 J>rorlde4 with spiked
shoes it is necessary for him to fix
steel calks to the soles. In recent
times a horizontal bar, breast high,
feas 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 sparkstotting reaches a
pretty good speed without g*eat effort.
An experienced racer, when . the
snow is in good condition, can easily
attain the speed of a horse on a trot.
In ascent* it ts necessary* to push the,
sparkstotting or to drag it, but this!
does toot cause much fatigue, owing to
its lightness and the feeble surface in
contact with the show. With this sled
It is possible to run very fast
Industrial Companies That Do a Busi
ness Bunning Up Into the
Thirty-three years 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 English company,
which was insuring the lives of work
lngmen and children on a large scale.
To-day, says the Chicago Chronicle,
that man is president of one of three
similar companies whlih stand pledged
to pay in the future mire than $2,000,
--000,000 to more than f1.000,000 of peo
ple; which are disbufring $600,000 a
week to the policy holders in sums aver
aging perhaps $100;. wich have assets
stored up of nearly ;150,000,000, and.
most notable of all, 'hieh collect by
hand $250,000 in ten-dnt pieces. Such
a growth within the \jrking life of one
man is amazing even a this age of in
dustrial miracles, an an examination
of its details heigh te< the wonder.
Strangely enough, tough one family
out of every five injie United States
has one or more indstrial policies on
some member, the Average well-in
formed man knowsiothing whatever
about the system oris workings. But
ask your householdjervants, and the
chances are you wijflnd that at least
one of them is pay ii ten cents a week
to a company whic guarantees her
$100 or so in case rfdeath—enough to
pay for the funeral fpenses. This was
the foundation prjiple of industrial
insurance and is Ifll the domlnanl
reason for its exisfce—-the avoidance
of a burial at pile expense or ol
leaving a burden! H^>t upon one's
family. The aven cost of burial for
% child under twojars is fr6m $12 to
$25; the average Mrance on children
between one andf'o years old is
$19.48. At the ajof ten the average
funeral expense^ $£0, the average
From this initjidea, however, the
business has (Hoped "cash divi
dends" and "pfip policies," until
now Its paymj of claims alone
amount to $25,000 a year la sums
ranging from $jo $1,000.
Electrli In Egypt
A consular ifrt quoting from a
leading Germaiade paper, says the
imports of eledal, telegraphic, tele
phonic, etc., aitus into Egypt dur
ing the years L 1902 and 1903 were
valued at aboplO.OOO, $27«.OOO and
$333,900, resp«ly. Of these Great
Britain led wihe lion's share each
year. The wi commenting on the
