Arvid Akerlind Happened To Be in
Sweden at Time Director Hedenblad
Was Taken Seriously III and onbanquet.
Vote of the Members of the Chorus
He Was Requested to Temporarily
Take the Place of the Stricken
The other day when the TJpsala Stu
dent's Male Chorus met for practice to
prepare for their annual spring con
cert it was learned that Director
Hedenblad had been taken suddenly
ill. There now arose the question as
to who should be chosen to take his
place and although there were several
whom the members believed were
able to direct the singi ng they could
not agr ee on any certain man Bu
it happens that Director Arvid Aker
lind, of New York, is in Sweden on a
visit this summer and happened to be
in TJpsala on this occasion to visit old
friends. Almost unanimously the
members of the chorus voted to have
Director Akerlin lead in place of the
beloved Hedenblad and that even if
he had been so thoughtless as to emi
grate to America about sixteen years
ago, where he has since risen to be
one of the most successful leaders of
Swedish American male choruses. It
is but natural that Director Akerlind
felt flattered to think that an oppor
tunity was extended him to direct the
foremost male chorus in the world, one
which in years past captured the prize
at Paris and Berlin and whose won
derful rendition of Swedish songs has
been the talk of two continents. Di
rector Akerlind will, we understand,
invade Sweden next summer with a
male chorus of Swedish singers from
New York and Boston and that he will
be given a royal reception goes with
out saying.
A writer some time ago wrote an in
teresting description of the colony of
Swedes in Jerusalem after maki ng an
extensive trip through Palestine. Th
Swedes that he found in Jerusalem are
known as Larsonites. It seems that
they emigrated from Sweden to Jeru
salem some fifty or sixty years ago
under the influence of a revival and
have kept up a comparatively separate
existence in the holy city since that
time. They reside in what is called
the American section. They are de
scribed by the writer as being a God
fearing people and live among the
Catholics and Mohammedans of the
city. They are well known for their
charity among the poor and the im
provident Arabs. It was upon the ex
istence of this interesting colony that
the famous Swedish writer, Salma La
gerlof, wrote her book entitled "Jeru
salem," in which she describes their
life most vividly. Since Miss Lager
lof's book appeared there has been
aroused a great deal of interest in this
far away colony of Swedes in the holy
land and there will undoubtedly come
something in detail regarding this
characteristic colony from a Swedish
pen in the near future.
Next year in June the Augustana
synod will celebrate its fiftieth anni
versary in Rockford, 111. Th Swedish

paid a visit to this country when he
attended the meetings of the Augus

ing educational institutions.
The Swedish government will donate

has been spending but very little
time in Sweden during the past few
years and when he comes home he is
a comparative stranger.
The Swedish tourists bureaus are
being flooded with letters from all
parts of Europe and America and in

The Danish government has given
Professor Nordenskiold's expedition

A large new Swedish hotel has been

When Dr. Sven Hedin lectured on
his expedition in Central Asia there
was a very large~and select audience
present. Both King Haakon and
Pridtjof Nansen we re in attendance,
but they left the hall at the close of
the lecture and did not attend the ban

stating that he is not in the habit of

death of his wife. N excuse was giv

Norway proposes to do some active
advertising in Germany this season. A
branch tourist and travelers' bureau
has been established there, giving all
kinds of information regarding Nor
way as a tourist country and inci
dentally advertising some of the coun
try's resources. The storthing has
made an appropriation for the main
tenance of the bureau there this sea

The Norwegian and Swedish mem

A additional 12,000 crowns will be

the appearance of the western en

The National theater made a great
hit with "Madame Butterfly." No

The Ma 17 celebrations this year
in all tie cities of Norway were of a
comparatively orderly character. A
great deal of the usual carousals and
street fights were for some reason or
other not so strongly in evidence this
year as during former years.

an invitation to attend the Danish
American reunion at Aarhus on July

minister, Maurice Egan Danish
minister to America, Count Moltke,
and the famous critic, Dr. George

This is the first time that an attempt
has been made to have a Fourth of

citizens descended from that country.
The object is to afford Scandinavians
an apportunity to learn the truth about

many people from Denmark have
chosen as their adopted country.
The owner of the old dance hall in
Copenhagen known as the "Kaeden,"
has evidently a monopoly on the dance
hall business in the city. The other
day he purchased the aforementioned
institution for 480,000 crowns. Last
year he purchased a similar institu
tion known as "Figaro" for 450,000
crowns. Both these resorts are much
frequent by the gay population, es
pecially in the summer time.

The Gopher Ditching Machine.
It is estimated that there was
525,259,000 invested in the agricultural
industry iu this country in 1908. Th
1907 yield of farm products reached
the fabulo us sum of S7,412,000.000, an
increase of 57 per cent over 1902. A
a result of this gre at increase in the
agricultural industries, practically
all the tillable lands in this country
are now taken up. While it is esti
mated that there is one hundred and
fifty million acres of land which can
be made tillable by reclamation, only
about ten milli on acres have up to
date been reclaimed.
The inventor of the Gopher Ditch
ing Machine, Mr. Whipple, is a farmer
living in Anoka county. For a long
time he realized that a machine was
necessary which would cheaply and
quickly reclaim this great area of un
reclaimed land. A a result he invent
ed the Gopher Ditching Machine, and
this company was formed to manu
facture and sell this inventon. Orders
for five machin es have already been
secured which tax es the facilties of

Your Opportunity.
Yo u. as a resident of this great
agricultural state, know that there is
a demand for a machine which will
quickly and economically drain and
irrigate the land. You know that the
government is spending millions of
dollars in reclamation projects. You
know that land which was not worth
25 cents an acre has by reclamation
methods been increased in value to
several hundreds of dollars, i'o
this reason you are qualified to judge
as to the possibility of a market for
a machine which will do all kinds of
ditching work at a price not exceed
ing ten cents per yar d, and which will
handle 2,000 cubic yards of earth a
day of twenty-four hours.
