Nothing is dirtier than dripping oil. Ordinary
cream separators use oil only once, then let it drip
away. But Sharpies Dairy Tubular Separators are

don't drip a drop. If you have been using an oil can,

Recent Occurrences of Interest
in Sweden, Norway and
Prominent People Speak at the Anti
Alcohol Conference at City
of Stockholm.
SWEDEN. Stockholm.
The Anti-Alcohol Conference which
opened in Stockholm recently -was an

the duke of Skane. Other speakers
were Dr. Ellsworth, superintendent of
the Washington Home in Boston Dr.
T. D. Crothers, of Hartford, Conn.
Jessie Forsyth, of Boston Professor
Hartman, of Leipzig Baron Prazak,
of Vienna Dr Nicholl, of New York
General O'Reilly, of the United States
army Trofessor Ashaffenberg, of
Kiel, and Dr. Eggert, of Bremen.
Nearly 100 delegates participated in
the debates. The American delegates
were six in number, two of them lep
resenting the United States govern
ment, viz., General O'Reilly and Dr.
C. Beyer, medical inspector of the
United States navy.
The following item demonstrates
that it will take some time for the
Swedes and Norwegians to "get to
gether" commercially and otherwise
since the recent disruption of the
union: "A few representative Swedes
attended the agricultural exposition
in Kristiania, but they were there as
private persons, not as Swedish rep
resentatives. One of them, Profes
sor Juhlm-Dannfelt, was interviewed
for a Norwegian daily, and he made
a comparison between Sweden and
Norway with regard to farming. But
th Swedish press states in plain Ian
guage that the Swedish nation does
not endorse everything said by the
professor his interview.
"Can Sweden Defend Herself?" is
the title of a new book issued by a
Social Democrat named Fabian Mans
son. He seems to believe that this is
impossible and therefore recommends
that Sweden should dispense with her
roihtaiy forces entirely. He also
claims that it would take not less than
415,087,200 crowns to put the Swedish
aimy fighting shape. His book has
been piintej in 50,000 copies and it
ha cieated quiet a bit of comment,
not to say some annoyance to the gov
ernment authorities.
timated that 02,000 acres of ground
are at present devoted to
sugar industry of Sweden,
ther stated that it costs almost $20

making the expenses $1,240,000 fiom
the time the seed is put into the
ground until the crop is ready for

1,240,000 is earned to a large extent
by women and children.
The International Methodist Con
ference at Nonkoping was closed a
week ago last Tuesday after an ex
ceedingly interesting session. Bishop
Burt, of the United States, served as
chairman and addressed the assem
blage. The foreign delegates present
were 136 in numbei, three of them be
ing representatives of Swedish-Amer
ican E. churches
A telegram from Stockholm states
that it looks as though the disputes
between Sweden and Norway resid
ing the lobster fisheries near Giise
Mame would be settled by a court of
aibitiation. Others again fear that it
will by no means be an easy task to
settle the dispute to the entire satis
faction of both countries.
Ha raid Andre has been appointed
stage manager at the Royal Opera in
Stockholm. Mr. Andre has during the
pist two years been the musical cutic
for the Svenska Dagbladet. He is an
excellent musician, having studied
music at home and in Berlin, Pans
and London.
C. G. Tornquist, a well known
Swedish actor, died very suddenly at
his home in Stockholm week befoie
last, aged 61 years. He was for a
number of years one of the leading

The following dispatch to the Min

Danish king: Chnstiania was aglow
with flags and bunting today and
there was much popular rejoicing over
the thirty-fifth anniversary of the birth
of King Haakon. Addresses of con-
y&t ^^jfj
gratulation were received
throughout Norway, and to
added the felicitations of all the gov
erelgns of Europe. The greetings of
the latter were conveyed to the royal
palace by the diplomatic representa
tives, who were received in, person by
the king. The popular festivities in
honor of the' king's birthday afforded
but another proof of the strong hold
te has secured on the affections of his
subjects. The sincere regard of the
Norwegians for their king and queen
ill the more remarkable since it is
yet two years that the young
Danish prince and his English prin
cess were invited to assume the sov
ereignty. In the modern history of
Europe no parallel is to be found.
King Haakon's uncle, Prince George
of Denmaik, accepted the throne of
Greece and has occupied it nearly for
ty-five jeais. Yet the people of
Greece entertain no leal affection for
him. And the same may be said of
the German princes who have become
the rulers of Roumania and Bulgaria.
The case of King Haakon, in fact, af
foids the only example of an alien
ruler who has been accepted with
genuine loyalty and taken into the
hearts of his new subjects. It is but
natural that the stiong characteristics
of King Haakon should win the at
tachment of his people.
