Ynnksrs Statesman I
Writer Beet 8weetneis In Their N-
ture, But It la Seldom Visible
on the Surface.
Thcro is sweetness in tho Scandina
vian nature, but you reach it deep
down past flint. " The late Governor
Johnson of Minnesota drew peoplo bo
cause ho had Imagination and tender
ness traits none too common among
his people. They are undemonstra
tive in tho family, and it is not sur
prising that their youth on tho farma
are restless from heart hunger. Be
sides, thero is dearth of recreation.
Tho Norwegian has his violin, but tho
Swedish folk dances we hear so much
about were not brought In by the im
migrants. They lack tho German
Maonnerchor, Turnvereln and Schuet
renfest. It is unusual to And them
organizing athletlo sports. Their so
cial gatherings center In tbo church,
which, of course', acta as a damper
on the spirits of the young. They
love fun, to be sure, but have not tho
knack of making it. Shut up within
themselves, hard to reach, slow to
kindle and dominated by an austere
hell-fire theology, they are too often
the prey of somber moods and victims
of suicide and insanity.
An experienced social worker finds
selfishness the besetting sin of the
Scandinavians he deals with. If a set
tlement class gets a room or a camp
it objects to any others using it In
nny undertaking they have in com
mon with other nationalities they try
to get the best for themselves. They
withhold aid from the - distressed of
another nationality, while the Irish
will respond generously to the earns
appeal. A labor leader notices that
the Scandinavian worklngmen are
"hard givers."
On tho other hand, an observer re
marks: "For a suffering person, cir
culate your subscription paper among
the Irish; for a good cause, circulate
it among the Scandinavians." Cen

Mltjht Have Been Nothing In Remark
Mother Made, But Mr. Nextdoor
Understood It.
"It Is a wise plan, when there 1b nny
necessity for keeping a thing secret,
to say nothing bearing upon It before
the children," said a gentleman who
is not now on the best terms with his
"I had a bed of very choice gera
niums for which the cat from next
door evinced a liking. It admired
them, not from the path, but from
various positions in much closer prox
imity, which was not exactly good for
the geraniums.
"My advice to tho owner of tho ani
mal to keep the cat at home was
received in none too friendly a spirit,
but I boro with the nuisance for somo
time, till my patience gave way, and
one day tho cot vanished.
"Next door did not charge me with
any crime. He was far too astute a
gentleman. Instead, ho lured my
youngest boy around to his garden
with somo cherries.
" 'Your father hasn't by any chance
been saying anything about cats, at
home lately, has he, George?' he aBked.
"George shook his head.
"'Nor your mother, eh?'
"'Not a word,' replied George.
'Only, when father was cleaning his
gun last night, she said she thought
wo could risk leaving tho milk-jug
on the steps this morning.'"
Wing Shun's Note.
A woman going away for tho sum
mer received tho following not from
her Chinese laundryman, to whom
she had sent word that ho need not
call at her house for"" laundry" work
until hef return In the autumn:
"Dear Lady: Wing Shun sends sor

you have happy good time and need
some more washing and you glet
home. Glad to wash you some more
then. AH blzlness dull In summer

Vera Cruz In the Sixteenth Century.
Robert Thomson, merchant, visited
Vera Cruz in 1555. It had then not
more than three hundred households.
"This towne," he wrote, "is subject
to great sickness, "and in my time
many of the Mariners and ofllcerB of
the ships did di with those diseases,
ther"e accustomed, and especially
those that were not used to the coun
trey, nor know the danger thereof,
but would commonly go in the Sunne
in the heat of the May, and did eat
fruit of tho xountrey with much dis
order. . . . Whereupon they were
cast into a burning ague, of the which
few escaped."
Ancient English Trees.
Undoubtedly the most remarkable
and Interesting group of trees in Eng
land Is that which is known as Burn
ham beeches, near Windsor. It la
probably a fragment ot the ancient
foresta of Britain, and, many of tho
trees, hollow to tho core, must be
very old. It Is a matter of history
that these trees were pollarded that
is, they bad their heads cirt off by
Cromwell's Ironsides, who wanted
wood for gunatocks, so they must
have been remarkably well growa
even wen.
"Now; for the love ot Mike," said
Blatter In a resigned tone, "remember
it's white paint and keep out of it I"
He glared at the three young Slab
tors and included Mrs. Slatter in his
general glance. "You know," he added
In her direction a llttlo defiantly, "that
you aro just as Impetuous and thought
less as the children I Somo of you will
be sure to fall against the woodwork
or try to absorb a- bucket of stuff be

aee why the painters bad to choose
Saturday, when the children are home
from school 1"
"We'll be careful, John," promised
Mrs. Slatter. "Oh wait till I get
somo turpentine and take it off I"
Slatter, clad in his broad-shouldered,
fuzzy winter overcoat, had attempted
to pans through the den door to the
hall and the door Jamb affectionately
brushed his right arm, leaving a white
smudge. "Tee Reel" mistakenly said
Sally Slatter, aged nine.
"Sally!" barked; her father. "For
that you get no dessert tonlghtl It is
time you learned to exercise a little
respect toward your elders! Marcla,
I should think you would endeavor to
bring up your children in a manner
"It's all off, now, John," interrupted
Mrs. Slatter. "I think If you will go
through tho front door sideways good
gracious, you've whisked the tails of
your coat against the parlor door!"
"Ye-ow!" yelled Johnny Slatter, Jr.,
and dived for the swing door into the
kitchen. ,
"Look at that!" cried Slatter, point
ing majestically toward Johnny's exit.
"If that door had been white instead
of oak and if it had Just been painted
Johnny would have struck It with both
hands Just the same! That's what I
mean by your carelessness! I expect
that when I get home tonight the
whole place will be marked up with
"I hope not," said Mrs. Slatter, anx
iously. "Good-by, deal- o-h!"
In turning to kiss her Slater had
rested his gloved hand on the front
door jamb. The glovo that Slatter
tore from his hand and hurled violent
ly as he went down the front steps
hit one of the parlor windows and left
a smear.
With the exception of the baby's feat
of licking off one of the freshly done
spindles of the staircase and the catas
trophe which befell Johnny, Jr., who
lost his balance and grabbed the door
to .save himself, the painting Was a
triumphant success. Mrs. Slatter wel
comed her husband's early return
from the ofllce with a tolerably clear
conscience. He was restralnedly calm
about the episode of the baby and-the
kind painter had painted out the evi
dences of Johnny's misdeed and no
body had stepped Into a bucket of
paint, as he had prophesied.
"I will say that I am surprised,"
Slatter confided kindly. "You must
have tied up the children all day and
had extra good luck yourself. Well,
you see what a little forethought will
A llttlo later there came a yell from
the bathroom, whither Slatter had
gone to shave before he and his wife
should start for tho card club. "Why
didn't you tell me they had painted
up here?" ho demanded. "I hadn't any
idea they had got upstairs yetl It
won't wash off my hands!"
Mrs. Slatter scoured most ot tho
paint from Slatter'a hands and soothed
him as best she could. He was still
mutinous when they departed and his
fingers showed a grimy gray which re
fused to come off.
"Lovely looking mitts for playing
cards!" said Slatter with reproach.
"If you'd only use your head a little
and warn people!"
They got home late and Slatter was
tired. "It's good to get home!" he
groaned. "I'm dead to the world!"
With a long sigh of relief, he tossed
his overcoat over the stair railing,
where it clung affectionately to the
spln'dles. He himself sank down on
the seat built In at the foot of the
stairs. Mrs. Slatter's shriek when she
turned around and saw him expressed
some horror, but more malicious tri
umph. Slatter pulled his dress suit
painfully loose from the stair seat and
grabbed his coat, which also stuck.
"I'm going to tend to the furnace
and go to bed," he growled, and
stalked down Into the basement, mer
cifully spared the tragedy of seeing
the rear view of his evening clothes.
He was abBent some time and when
he came up he was In his stocking
"You needn't ask where my shoes
are," he snapped to Mrs. Slatter, who
paused in her gingerly progress up
the paint-wet stairs. "Because they're
in the furnace! And," Slatter ended
savagely as her lips opened In threat
ened speech, "they're in tho furnace
because I stepped into a pall of white
paint the painter left on purpose right

A Important In Syria at la the Cow
to People of the Countries
of the West.
Tho trees In a Syrian garden aro
an Important and practically neces
sary part of the nutrition of the peo
plo. Combined with grain in the
form of coarse bread, the. tree-products
make a balanced and wholesome
ration. For large elements of the
population, at least one meal a day
is commonly composed of bread and
walnuts. The walnut Is rich In both
protein and fat, so that this combina
tion virtually duplicates in nutrition
our occidental sandwich of bread, but
ter an'd meat. Tho oil to which the
scriptural writers so lovingly referred
is BtUI important in that land, and the
olive tree that produces It is almost
as useful to the Syrian as the cow is
to the American. The cow gives but
ter and drink, and the olive tree gives
butter and food. When the workman
on the Mediterranean goes from home
for a day's labor, he often takes a
pocketful of olives and a piece of
bread for his lunch. Remove butter,
breakfast bacon, and fat meat from
our vocdbulary, put olive oil In their
place, and wo shall begin to think the
thoughts of Mediterranean cooks.
Onco cooks and palates are educated,
the blood does not know the differ
enco between the rich globules of fat
that come to It. It Is fat that the
human system wants, and It makes no
final difference whether it comes from
butter, bacon, lard, olive, cocoanut,
goose, or bear. Fat is fat, once It Is
in our blood. The source from which
we shall get this fundamental of nu
trition depends In part upon our bring-ing-up,
but eventually our getting It
depends upon the ease of winning It
from our environment. J. RusBell
Smith, in the Atlantic.
Who Discovered the 'Kangaroo?
Mr. W. B. Alexander of tho Western
Australian museum at Perth, W. A.,
has recently corrected a popular mis
take in the history of natural history.
The discovery of the kangaroo family
Is generally credited to Sir Joseph
.Banks, and is supposed to have oc
curred during Captain Cook's first voy
ago In 1770. This date, it appears, Is
nearly one hundred and fifty years too
late. When the Dutch East India
company's ship, the Batavia, under
command of Captain Pelsart, wae
wrecked on tho Abrolhos Islands In
1629, tho survivors encountered, among
other strange things the Dama Walla
by, tho first member of the kangaroo
family known to Europeans. Captain
Pelsart despribed It as a species of caf
ahout tho size of a hare, noted Its re
markable hind legs, and described In.
considerable detail the abdominal
pouch for the young and the use of it
Services on tho Roof.
Efforts to maintain religious wor

i the plane of comfort and freedom from

Romance of Old Clothea.
Florence Hull Winterburn, authoi
of the recently published "Princlplea
of Correct Dress." believes that tho
American woman who does not care
for dress is not only unfemlnlne but
I "unpatriotic." A particular tenderness
for old gowns Is shown in every sta-
tlon of llfo, declares Mrs. Howe.
"From the daughter of the million
aire, who has a sentiment for ths
Doucet gown she wore when John first
admired her, down through the social
scale to the old West Virginian moun
taineer who musingly whispered, a
sho hung the mate-to her one other
calico frock on the clothes-lino, 'I al
tera liked this un better'n any frock I

of one's life, obtains in the minds ol

Her Only Fear.
Sir Thomas Llpton tells this story
of a lady and her husband who were
crossing the Atlantic for the first time.
Their steamer encountered terribly
rough weather, and they were both
very unwell. As they lay in their
bertha watching the luggage rolling
about on the floor of the xabin and
listening to the bangs and bumpe and
the "shouted orders on deck, they
thought their last hour had come. Sud
denly, from the wife's cdrner, came a
feeble volco Just audible above the
noise "John," she said, "John, do you
