Dr. Johannes Fibiger, of Copen
hagen, has made some remarkable
experiments with regard to the origin
of cancer. He succeeded in producing
cancerous swellings, in the stomachs
of rats by means of a kind of round
maggots. He did not need to give
the rats such maggots. He gave
ithem cockroaches containing round
maggot larvae. In the stomachs of
the rats these larvae grew up into
round maggots pretty much in the
same manner as trichinae. These
maggots caused the cancerous swell
ings. This is supposed to be the first
successful attempt to produce cancer.
The results of Dr. Fibiger's experi
ments are of such importance that it
seems strange that this information
(was not cabled two weeks ago.
The following tribute is paid to
Denmark and her people by the
Toledo News Bee: Denmark is about
one-fourth the. size of Wisconsin.
Much of it was formerly p. bleak
waste of sand dune. Only the east
ern part of the country and the neigh
boring islands were considered fit for
agriculture. In addition to its pov
erty in natural resources, the country
was further impoverished by the
Napoleonic wars in the early part of
the nineteenth century. Jn the sec
ond half of the nineteenth century
Sleewig-Holstein was taken by the
Germans. Practically all of its com
merce was gone. The peasant farm
ers were in a most pitiful condition.
Yet today this same Denmark is, in
proportion to its population, the
wealthiest country in Europe. Den
mark, is essentially an agricultural
A. B. RICB,
country. It has an area of about
10,000,000 acres. More than $90,000,
000 worth of butter, eggs and meats
are exported by the farmers of Den
mark annually. In 1906 the Danes
had $208,000,000 in savings banks.
Eighty-nine families out of every
hundred own their own farms and
houses. -Poor land. Desolation by
war. Robbery of the best lands by a
stronger power. Genial poverty.
And now such general comfort such
immense aggregate wealth such
splendid conditions. And all this at
tained by what? It is on the sur
face. "Land holdings are easily ob
tained." That is the first essential
to general prosperity. The farmers of
Denmark are the most thoroughly or
ganized in the world. They buy, sell,
study, market, slaughter their stock
and pack their meats co-operatively.
All their milk is handled by co-opera*
tive creameries and cheese factories.
The bakers of Gothenburg are in
favor of doing away with all night
work. The matter will be thoroughly
discussed at the bakers' national con

"King Gustaf's idea," says the great
coach, "is not to have me develop a
few sensational champions, but to
make all the Swedish youths gener

well. Since I took charge of athletics
in Sweden the general average his

the king most. You Yankees will

experienced. It will be an easier task
to build a team for the Berlin Olym

be right up in front. In my opinion
the United States will never make
another clean-up at an Olympiad. The
Americans probably will win future
Olympiads, but never by the large
scores that have marked their vic

As two boys were driving along
the shore at Homsund an otter was
seen swimming out from the .beach.
One of the boys threw a stone, which
struck the water just in front of the
otter, and the animal started back
for the shore. A man who happened
to come past at the right moment
grasped the tail of the otter as he was
slipping into a cave. It did not take
the man long to pull out the otter and
hurl him against a rock. It is safe to
say that this is not a very common
way of hunting ottters. The skin of
the otter was worth about ten dol
