Big Carnival of Winter Sports at
HolmenkollenResults of
- - the Events.
Scandinavian Unity Fostered by the
Fraternizing of the Norwe-
Upwards of 30.000 spectators witnessed
the great annual ski jumping contest a t
Holmenkollen on Feb. 1. In the immense
crowd were rrore than 500 Swedes, as well
as hundreds of English, German, French
and Danish sportsmen. , I t is not too
much,to say that the tournament was the
greatest sporting event, in, Europe for the
winter, possibly the greatest in the world.

vgians
I t was a brilliant scene for the majority
were in skiing costumes of bright color s,
while the Swedish party, consisting mostly
of military men. were gorgeous in their
brilliant finery, which compares favorably
with that of any army in Kuropfe for color.
A t the head of the.Swedish visitors were
Crown Prince Regent Gustaf , Princes Gus
.talf Adolf and Wilhelm, and Major* Gen
eral Gustaf Uggrla. Dr. Fridtjof Nansen
was a con&picuous figure, a t the games.
The., newspapers'* of Christiania grew
fiuit'e ex.cited over the various events,
indicating that the general enthusiasm
was very high,/ . The games began on
Saturday, Jan. 31. T^he skaters gathered
at Frogner Kilen, where th,e, 500 and the
6.000-meter races were the first big events.
I n the 500-meter race Wathen was first
in 47 seconds, ' Schwartz was only two
tlfths of a second behind. Jahrl of Stock
holm was third, the others in their order
being Sten, Throndhjem, Tillandor. Bons
naes. Drammen and Mathisen, Christiania.
I n the 5.000-meter races on Jan. 31,
Schwartz of Christiania had a compara
tively easy victory, coining in with a rec
ord of 0:18 1-5. Wathen, the Finn, made
10:11 3-5O . Sten of Throndhjem, 10:14
Bonsnaes, Drammen, 10:16 1-5, and Ma
thisen. 10:18. There were seven Swedes
and Finns i n the race, but Wathen was
the only one to win a place.
I n the 10,000-meter race on Feb. 1. Bons
naes of Drammen proved himself a pow
erful akatsr. coming home with a record
of ID minutes L'l 3-5 seconds. The re
doubtable Schwartz, who fell once, came
in with 10:30 3-5 O. Sten was thirdTil -
lander and Wathen. the Finns, were
fourth and fifth respectively, and Mathi
sen was sixth in 20:09 1-5.
Schwartz and Wathen were the favorites
In the 1.500-meter contest, but somewhat
to the surprise of all, O. Sten of Thrond
hjem took the first place in 2:35, followed
closely by Schwartz in 11:36. Saetcrhaug,
mother Throndhjem hoy, was tied with
Wathen for third place in 2:39 1-5. Til
lander and Bonsnaes secured places.
Schwartz will unquestionably be con
ceded to be the best man on the ice. Not
only did he win the first place in the mid
tile distance iraee. but he secured second
places in the 500-meter dash and the
10,000-meter race.
I n the fancy skating exhibition the
Swedes had it a ll their own way. taking
the three highest prizes with ease. The
Norsemen who entered were strong and
admirable skaters, but could not compare
in skill with their rivals. The prizes were
awarded as follows: First, D e Flon, Geble
second, Solchow, Stockholm, who won
first prize at the international tournament
at Davos, Switzerland, this year third
Andreen, Gefle fourth, Hoi th e, Thrond
hjem fifth, Johansson, Gefle sixth, Olson,
Throndhjem.
A short cross-country run was given
the skiers on Feb. 1 and while there were
many spectators and participants the
event was only preliminary t o the great
est of all, the Halmenkol "Derby"* o n
Monday. Feb. 2. This attracted the great
est crowds and created the most enthus
iasm. Only Norwegians were entered i n
class 1 A , but even these premiers had
many humiliations, a s fully half of them
fell. O . Tapdberg cleared 31 meters100
feetonly to keel over and put himself out
of the contest. Karl Hovelsen was easily
the best, but Karl Braaten, Martin Chris
toffersen, Jorgen B . Schive and others did
excellent work. There were S I contest
ants in class 1 B , among them the Swed
ish entries, but the contest was,so close
that only the official announcements will
disclose the prize winners.
I n class 2 B were the young jumpers.
They displayed more energy than skill.
Leif Berg was picked a s the winner, al
though Helge Lindboe made a splendid
jump of 28 meters.
The press seems t o concede that Karl
Hovelsen wi ll b e awarded the king's
trophy, "Kongepokalen" and also the
Holmenkol medal, although Helge Linde
lioe appears t o have cleared the greatest
distance, 28 meters.
The cross-country run on Feb. 4, though
not s o exciting was a remarkable event.
I t was over a rough country with many
impediments and the Swedes suffer ed
greatly from the unaccustomed handicaps.
The course was 55 kilometers from Frog
ner Saeter via Tomte. Tongen, Baerum,
Vensaas, Aamot and back t o the Saeter.
The runners had speed and endurance and
the best ones covered i t a litt le over four
hours, that is t o say a t the rate of about
eight miles a n hour. The winners were
Karl Hovelsen, 4 hours, 17.6 Per Andrea
sen, 4:17:45 Karl Sonerud. 4:19:52 Jo
hannes Bentzen, 4:20:2 Olav Bjaaland,
4:26:34.
Between the two big ski events the
horses were given a chance. The ski
riding events were farcial and increased
the opinion that this sport is neither a
proper use of skis nor of horses. The
steeple chases were intensely exciting.
The Swedish officers proved themselves
to b e the most skilful riders and with
the exception of Captain Wiel Gedde, who
saved the day for Norway, the Swedes
swept everything before them. I n the
Christiania steeple, chase Gedde on his
President came in first jus t, ahead of Lieu
tenant Stjernsward on Filippine. Lieu
tenant Hamilton on Palermo and Lieuten
ant Gibson on Gitana won third and fourth
places. I n the Scandinavian steeple chase
Gedde and the President secured the lead
and retained it to the finish, but the Swed
ish officers captured the other four prizes
In the following order: Lieutenant Stj
ernsward, Lieutenant Fjelman, Lieutenant
.Tragard, Lieutenant Gibson.

CHECK LUMBER BARONS
Swedish Riksdag Will Impose Adequate
Taxes,
The Swedish riksdag is about to impose
lumbering taxes in localities where timber
is cut. The revenue thus exacted from
the forest barons will replenish the empty
treasuries of the remote parishes of the
Norrland and put them I n a position to
cope with the next famine crisis.
This is one of many measures Swedish
economists are devising to prevent a rep
etition of the present terrible conditions in
the f ar north. The national treasury has
been replenished by a new tax on spirits,
which has already
11.200.000 kronor ($3,100,600) during Janu
ary, 200,000'kroner (.$53,600).more than was
obtained for the corresponding .month last
year.
King Oscar I s Improving.
The condition of King Oscar is probab ly
not so serious as.th dispatches,have in
dicated. H e has gone t.o Saltsjbbadeit
with several friends. Previous to-his de
parture h e made daily visits t o his,son..
Prince Eugen, whose general condition is
reported to be quite satisfactory. - .
Dr. Mynter Dead.
Dr. Herman Mynter, one of the best
known surgeons in America, died Monday,
Feb. 9, at Buffalo, where he had practiced
for 30 years. H e was born in Copenhagen
and studied medicine in Denmark.
T o Protect Apprentices.
The workingmen of Sweden have joined
in a petition to the king asking for legis
lation in the matter of apprenticeship.
Many abuses have arisen from the pres
ent system and the condition of the ap
prentices is said t o be well tnlgh intol
erable.
Welhaven and Aasen.
Monuments will soon be raised i n Nor
way to Welhaven, the poet, and Ivar
Aasen, the philologist and author. The
Aasen memorial will be unveiled May 17,
but feo date has been set for unveiling
of the Welhaven memorial. . .
A Civil War Veteran.
A n urn containing the ashes of the late
Major General Baron Ernst von Vege
sack was placed in the family vault o n
Jan. 22 . The floral wreaths and the
Swedish and American colors which cov
ered the casket were also placed in the
vault. The deceased was a veteran of the
civil war, in which he distinguished him
self as an officer in the northern army.
Cash for Sweden.
The pos toff ice reports for Sweden show
that 115,412 money orders were received
in the year from the "United States, the
total sum involved being S,014,995.33 kr.
O n the other hand, Sweden sent 8,613
money orders t o the United States t o an
aggregate sum of 1,463,755.03 kr. ' .
Emigration of Swedes.
The emigration from Sweden last year
was greater than for any year since 1893.
The total number t o leave the country
was 29,001, nearly all destined for America.

( The exhibition of the work of Chicago
artists is being held this month a t the
Art institute. Arrangements have been
made t o secure annually a municipal art
fund of $600 t o purchase the best work
in each annual exhibition for the creation
of a historical collection of the works .of
Chicago artists. The award has just been
made and but $300 of the fund was paid
foi*~ thei purchase of J . C. Johansen's pic
tur e, "October Sear and Gold." the se
lection being made without regard to
pric e. , The.prlhcipal object of the fund is
to stimulate art among the younger art
ists. -
This fund ,wlth its great possibilities of
influencewas planned by the active Muni
cipal-Art league o f Chicago, which al
ready has done s o much good work. I t
has a, committee whose chief work is, to
secure the co-operation of the clubs of the
city in the work of the league and in pro
moting Chicago art.
Through its efforts almost every club.of
standing in the Chicago federation has
become a member of the league, and its
members are doing their utmost for the
encouragement of ajrt and artists of Chi
cago and vicinity. A s a result many of
these clubs are making a collection of the
works of Chicago artists rather than pur
chasing the results of the efforts of for
eign artists t o adorn their cl ub walls.
The pictures are purchased a t the annual
exhibition of works of artists of Chicago
and vicinity, and the opening of the ex
hibition is the signal for a succession of
afternoon receptions held a t the institute
in honor of the artists. .. '..
There are n0t less than three or four, of
these receptions a week and a teach the
decision of the organization In regard to
its picture selection or prizes is made.
This year the'Chicago Art club has
awarded its $100 prize and a medal-to
Frederick Freer for his portrait of him
self, with Mr. Johansen a close second.
The securing of a picture fund by sub
scription this year a t the annual exhibi
tion in Minneapolis a t the suggestion of
a small group of club women was a step
in the same direction and furthet* effort
of that kind is now under consideration.

The collection of pictures done in the
new Raffaelli oil crayons will he exhibited
in New York, but the exhibition has been
postponed, owing to the customs duties
demanded. O f the French exhibition
mentioned i a this column last week, Raf
faelli wrote to his New York art dealers,
saying: "We have had a great success
in Paristwenty thousand visitors, and
one-fourth of the pictures have been sold.
Eight lecture-rooms have opened in Paris
to give instruction t o this new method
and there will soon be exhibitions in Lon
do n, Dusseldorf. Cologne, Berlin, Vienna,
and Munich. The French artists will b e
joined in London b y Herkomen. Swan,
Brangwyn, Mesdag and Lieberman.
The Monumental News notes with regret
that the committee appointed by Iowa t o
spend $32,000 for the erection of memorial
statues upon three southern battlefields
stipulates that the monuments must repre
sent a soldier standing "at rest." Origi
nality of design is to count for nothing.
The French government has decided to
open a shop near the Paris opera-house,
where the products of the Sevres manufac
tory will be offered for sale. Heretofore
the masterpieces of porcelain turned out
from the famous factory have been chiefly
reserved for government use, only the more
ordinary ware being sold. B.y thus en
tering into direct competition with other
manufacturers it is hoped t o improve
French porcelains a s a whole, and meet
the Germans, whose Dresden ware jha/pf

France.

ton and Philadelphia.
.The principal scenes will b e read b y
Mr. Johnson, care being 'taken t o keep
the thread of the unhappy prince's story
well in view. This reading of. Hamlet has
been compared to the acting of it by Mr.
Sotherri, which is in itself,a compliment,
as the reader has n o scenery, costumes
and the thousand and one accessories
which go t o help the actor create his im
pressions. Yet a n eastern critic says:
"Mr. Johnson's and Mr. Sothern's Hamlet
aire remarkably alike. Both' make the
prince a lovable character. Both present
the character simply, sincerely and un
derstandingly, with little effect of rant
ing. Mr. Johnson's reading revealed a
nice sense of proportion, a discriminating
judgment, a swell as that dramatic abili^
t y which comprises merely the peaking
of the parts." ' -:-
These readings will give lovers of Shakr
spere's plays a rare chance t o hear the
minor characters given due place arid im
portance and t o hear scenes which are
only too often cut out Or butchered i n
stage representations. ' - - "

Any Louest person -who suffers from

. I am a specialist in Rheumatism, and hftye
treated more cases than any other physician, I
think. For sixteen years I made 2,000 experi
ments with different drugs, testing all known
remedies while searching the world for some
thing better. Nine years ago 1 found a costly
chemical in Germany, which, with my previous
discoveries, gives me a certain cure.
I don't mean that it can torn bony Joints into
flesh again but it can cure the disease at any
stage, completely and forever. I have done it
fully 100,000 times.
I know this eo Well that I win furnish my
remedy on trial. Simply write me a postal for
my book on Rheumatism, and I will niail you
an order on your druggist for six bottles Dr.
Snoop's Rheumatic Oure. Take it for a month
at my risk. If it succeeds," the cost is only
$5.50. If it falls, I will pay the druggist my
selfand your mere word shall decide it.
I mean that exactly- I f you say the results
are not what I claim, I don't expect a penny
from you.
I have no samples. Any mere sample that
can affect Chronic^Rheteetism must be drugged
to the' verge of danger. I use no' Buch drugs,
and it is folly tc~ take them. You must get the
disease out of the blood. V

Many men are subject t o a constant drain
upon the system that day by day empties the
store of vitality, undermines the health and
_slowly but surely hastens the day when a gen-
eral breakdown occurs. These losses are often
' hidden, and their extent is unknown unless
investigated by a competent physician. Drains
like these are leaks in man's energy, and the
longer they continue the more h e finds himself
lacking day by day in that grit and energy which
are all important factors to a man who wishes
to succeed. You can tell from the way you feel
whether you are losing strength, vigor and vital-
ity. A variety of symptoms give warning of a
gradual wasting of physical and mental strength.

**T1IP Encyclopaedia Britannica is king of its tribe."PROFESSOR DAVID
SWIN.G.
'Tlie mos useful reference book for young and old is the Encyclopaedia Brl-
tnnnion. Children beginning at 10 years old and on need its stories of historical,
biographical, mythological, elementary, scientific, natural history information. The
eager boy can study balloons, kinds f dogs, firearms, locomotives, habits of the,
housefly or cockroach. The youth may-wa nt information on subjects from geology or
electricity to the settlements oi".the Fiji islands, of volcanoes and earthquakes, or
a most fascinating story of JJapoleon and for the still older all the fundamental
conceptions of law, medicine, theology, ethics, sociology, curves and functions,
architecture, art, all the way up. perhaps, to the origin of some fine editorial on
Chinese metaphysics. Whether- for education or information, uo man who once
has this book will ever let himself or his children be without constant access
to it. If another deluge came, and the ark had room for but one secular book,
f his is beyond any doubt the one."CLEMENT BV17ES, Judge of Court, Cincin-
