The recent 'combination of the to*
bacco companies has resulted in a cut
ting down of employees, particularly
salesmen and office help. To off-set
the feeling of those who are to be
let out of service the new trust has
announced a series of pensions and
cash stipends, amounting te 150,000
crowns per year.
A late dispatch states that there Is
now no doubt about the matter of a
state appropriation for Swedish ath
letics, to make possible a winning par
ticipation in the Olympic Games and
other international contests. The
amount has not yet been determined
but the Athletic Association has good
hopes of securing an adequate amount
for the purpose.
There continues to be considerable
trouble in securing the necessary re
cruits for the up-keep of the army in
a way satisfactory to the war depart
ment. General Major Wrangel of the
Sixth Division believes this is due to
the enlistment restrictions and pro
poses some changes which he believes
will make enlisttnent more attractive.
Among other things he suggests a
liberal premium at the time of dis
charge, to be given to all who serve
out their enlistment in a faithful man
The central -bureau of animal hus
bandry has just issued a report show
ing the condition of the stockraising
Industry for the past year. The fig
ures indicate that there has been a
very considerable decrease in the vis
ible supply, the proportion being 942
head per 1,000 inhabitants for last
year as against 972 per 1,000 for the
preceding year. There are about 125,-
000 head less than a year ago, the
greatest decrease being in sheep and
goats. This condition means contin
ued high prices for meat.
The-Mayflower movement itt Sweden
bas come to be one of the important
philantrophies of the year. Last year
the total amount received for the sale
of the first Mayflower amounted to
201,852 crowns, which was better than
the previous year by several hundred
crowns. The number of societies en
gaged in the enterprise increased dur
ing the year from 360 to 403. The
money is used for the national anti
tuberculosis work and the sale of the
flowers has now "become an annual
event. A big increase is expected this
year, as conditions are better than
for some years past.
