cn the principal events of his trip to
Sweden la.-t summer as the Angus
tana ilciegaus to the ti 'i-ceiucnniVi
clelir:' i ion in honor of the birth of
('ail von I.inne, the great naturalisi.
Tho celebration was attended hy
learned nun and prominent scientists
from every civilized country. (lrear
lis'. iva's were held at the Universitv
of I'psahi and at the Uoyal Academy
;n Stockholm., under whose auspices
the celebration was held. The largest
delegation came from England, but t!i2
Americans vero accorded first honor
next to i lie royalty at everyfunctio:.
The American representatives besides
Dr. Youngert were Dr. Fa flow of Har
vard university and Dr. Keene of the
Smithsonian Institute, Washington.
The degree of doctor was conferred
on 114 delegates during the course jr
the celebration. Dr. Youngert was
honored with the degree of doctor f
philosophy. Owing to the illness of
King Oscar, the royal family was rep
rfsented at all the important function?
by t tie crown prince, who also ont::;
talned the delegates at a sumptuous
dinner at the royal palace in Stock
holm. At Itiiynl ;liln raltlini;.
Dr. Youngert also attended the
celebration held in connection with
the golden wedding of King Os
car and Queen Sophie, an event al
most unique in the world's history.
When the king learned that the Amer
ican delegates were at the palace, he
expressed the desire to meet them. HJ
v.-as extremely cordial and democrat!?
in his demeanor and was very solic'
tous regarding the welfare of his
countrymen in America. He asked
Dr. Youngert to carry his heartiest
greetings and best wishes to them.
At the close of the Iinne celebration.
Dr. Youngert trnvoled through the
greater part of Sweden and made a
thorough study of the existing condi
tions, lie found that the country lias
developed wonderfully during the la-
few years, in sjdte of the aggressive
ness of the socialist-labor party which
has been harassing the government
and state church. Dr. Youngert found
that this materialistic movement ha?
made its effect apparent only in ce--
tain localities and has not injured th:i
church in. general. Dr. Younger"
preached in the great, cathedral at
Stockholm as well as in several otho
churches. Will YlKit llei-f
Bishop von Scheele, who visited this
country some years ago, promised D-.
Youngert to attend the 2r.ih anniver
sary celebration of Augustana college
in 11)10. Dr. Youngert was accompan
ied on his trip by his little son, Eugene.
