August Strindberg, the eminent
Swedish author and playwright, re

While a young girl named Hilda Nils
Ban at Karlavagen 36, was engaged in
preparing dinner in the kitchen on a
gasoline stove, her clothes caught fire
through the upsetting of a cup of gaso
line. She rushed out in the street,
where August Strindberg happened
along. He immediately saw the criti
cal condition in which she was sur
rounded and pulled off Ms big over
coat, which he threw over the "blaz

young woman's life. Imagine ta*1

The following extract from the
Christiania Morgenbladet throws an
interesting light on woman's suffrage
as it evinces itself at present in Nor*
way: "Comparatively few women
were elected at the local elections iu
Norway this time. A few figures will
make this clear. In Christiania 79
men and five women were elected in
Bergen the corresponding numbeis
were 70 and 6 in Trondhjem 62 and
in Krlstianssand 49 and 3 in Dram
men 53 and 7 and in Fredrikstad 50
men and 2 women. The women had
a much larger number of candidates,
but they were defeated. Miss Holsen,
president of the Women's Suffrage as
socaition, was asked how the women
look upon this result and she an
swered in substance: 'We were deep
ly disappointed and highly indignant.
It seemed as though we were par
alyzed. We were unable to keep our
ground at the elections. One reason
for this result was, that we were too
sanguine, we really thought that the
men would vote for us. Besides, we
did not understand their tactics, we
did not realize that the matter was so
complicated. Each party wanted a
certain number of men as represents
tives of the different interests and the
women were crowded out because
they did not represent those particular
interests. We were poorly organized,
too: but we propose to unite our
forces better next time.' Other lead
lng suffragists spoke in the sama
strain. Mrs. Mariana Narup differed
somewhat with the other leaders. She
said that the women often scratched
the names of each other off the bal
lot? partly because they do not trust
each other sufficiently, partly on ac
count of jealousy.'"
The last act in the ministerial crisis
farce that has lasted for a year and
