mile in 5*00 4-5, or 14:25 4-5 for the

almost groggy. Swanberg ran the
fourth mile in 5-12 4-5, making his
total time to that point 19:38 3-5. In
the last quarter mile the Swede made
a glorious sprint, leaving the English
man far in the rear, and creating great
enthusiasm among the tnrong of his
countrymen present. This mile he ne

Swanberg and Duncan met again in a
race of 5.000 meters (3 miles and about
200 yards). Again the Swede was vic

15 minutes and 26 1-5 seconds.

The rumor that Russia is going to
build a naval station at Bumani fjord,
only within a stone's throw, oue may
say from the Norwegian boundary, has
caused no end of comment in the Rus

Norway who does not seem to fear any
trouble from the Russian *id is
Bjornson. The old man thinks that
Norwegians generally are too appre
hensive anent the matter, but the Rus
sian spy system seems to be eneoach
in right aloDg and either Russia is
trying to run a big bluff or else she
has e^il designs in close proximity to
the Norwegian border. Be it as it
may, Norwegian go\ernment officials
are watching the matter closely.

The co-operative dairies in Den
mark are well known to many read
ers. The first co-operative creamerv
was built in 18S2, also in western Jut
land, and when its success was proven
the movement spread rapidly o\e the
whole country until in 1905 there were
1,035 co-operative creameries, built at
a total cost of about $7,750,000, and
with 152,400 members and about 1,049,-
073 cows. Denmark has an area of
14,000 square miles, or about one
fourth the area of Illinois or Iowa.
The total output in 1905 was 17,000,000
pounds of butter receipt of milk was
4.43?.000,000 pounds. The total exports
of butter to England from all coun
tries the last four years was 1,465,800,-
000 poands. of which Denmark fur
nished G31,100,000 pounds, or about 43
per cent. The total amount paid was
$362,500, of which Denmark received
45.5 pei- cent. There are now thirty
two co-operative slaughter houses and
packing houses with about 75,000
farmers members. I 1904 these fac
tories butchered and exported 133,421
hogs alued at $13,715,000. The co-op
erative ejfg export associations were
organized in 1895 and have now 500
district associations and nearly 50,-
000 members. The total egg export in

Nobody in Copenhagen is trying to
have the city buy out the street car
company. The American minister to
Denmark reports that the street rail
way company gives 2% cent fares with
universal transfers, pays to the city 0
per cent of its gross earnings., paves
and maintains' the space between its
tracks and that for {wo feet outside,
and gets its electric power from the
city at a profit to the latter of $187,-
000 a year. Figures like these will
fill the municipal'ownership crowd of
Copenhagen with gloom.
Representatives from the legislative
assemblies of Sweden, Norway and
Denmark held a very successful meet
ing at Copenhagen a short time ago.
The delegation resolved by unanimous
vote to agitate for the closing of a
treaty of ai-bitration between the three
countries. The deliberations were all
most harmonious and were character
ized by great cordiality and the Danes
proved themselves excellent hosts
