The request for the electrified model farm comes from the National Associa tion for Electrification of Rural Sweden. In its communication to the government i this body points -out the necessity for training Swedish farmers in making use of electrical power. It proposes that farm electrification bo made a special subject of study at the. agricultural schools and college of the country. It is proposed that the model farm be fully equipjK'd with all . the latest elec tric agricultural , devices, so that the farmers may see: electrically operated plows, harrows, seeders, harvesters and threshing machine. Motors of different sizes will drive the milk separators and the, churn. The new electric device which 'passes an electric, current through an ensilage of cattle fodder to increase its nutritive value is to be shown.

Mrs. Sibley and Miss V. M. Buyer, American missionaries on their way to India, were said today by R. F. Bevan, the only other American passenger, to have been drowned in the wreck at the British Steamship Egypt, which was sunk off the coast of France Saturday night by a collision with the French steamer Seine. Nearly 100 other per sons lost their lives in the disaster. Two hundred and forty-two were saved of those who were on board the Egypt, according to the latest official figures. Among those missing are two Ameri can women, Mrs. M. L. Sibley and Miss V. M. Rover. It is possible that some of the missing may have been picked up by the steam ship Cap Iracon, which replied to the distress signals with the assurance that she was speeding to the spot. According to the Egypt's purser the ship floated only about 20 minutes after her plates were crushed in by the Seine. The Egypt, he declares, was lying to at ths time of the accident because of the dense fogi She was .sounding her siren continuously, he said; Suddenly there came the warning shriek of the Seine's siren and she loo?ned up out of the fog, striking the Egypt ainidship. In the crash there came a terrible confusion on the stricken vessel. Four or five boats were all that could be low ered because of the list of tin vessel and many persons jumped overboard fear ing to be drawn down with the Egypt. There was no one on board, when the vessel took her final plunge, he believes. The, purser estimated that 15 passen gers, ."'.0 white officers and 15 Lascars of the crew were missing: The collision occurred during a dense foa within 2;' miles of the Armen light house. The dinner gong was about to be sounded on boaTd the Egypt. Many of the passengers aud most of the crew were on deck. The i-.hock threw persons Into the sea: others .jumped and a num ber went' down with the ship, which sank in 20 minutes. The Egypt was rammed amidships on the port side. The Seine, badly damaged, reached Brest yesterday with 2i rescued passengers, more than 200 of the crew, and the bodies of 20 dead. The captain of the Egypt is among the saved. When the collision occurred, there was a rolling sea. Some of those rescued charge taat the Indian sailors on board the Egypt took to the lifeboats imme diately the vessels crashed, so that a large number of the passengers and crew had jto shift for themselves. Those who iunilod into the sea and who could swim scrambled about for bits of wreckage to which ihey might cling. Many of these were rescued. They Heated about in the for after, the Egypt went down, calling for help. The sound of their voices di rected niomlxrs of the crew of the Seine iu small, boats who were, patrolling the sea, picking up both living and dead. In some instances the rescue crews ca"ie upon persons, dinging to bits of debris, who let i'o and sank just as aid was at hand. The small Ixnits on nu merous occasions sought vainly in the fog to reach persons lifting cries of dis tress through the fog. Among the miss ing are the doctor and chief engineer of the Kgvot. The Egypt was a vessel of S.000 tons. The Seine was bound for Harve when the disaster occurred.

The huge sturgeon that once inhabited the Columbia and other Pacific coast rivers havei almost disapieared. For many years these large inoffensive fish were supiosed to be of no value, and when caught in salmon nets or on hooks were destroyed. Then it was discovered that the eggs of the sturgeon were val uable as caviar and its flesh as food, and a period of reckless fishing began. In a; few years the most productive waters were depleted. The annual catch for the last few years of sturgeon has been but a few thousand pounds, and this spring but one fish has been sighted. There is a great demand for its eggs and flesh and prices are very high. A mature female sturgeon is said to be worth -$150, for such a fish will yield more thau a million eggs no larger than a pin-head. All attempts at artificial propagation of sturgeon eegs have failed in the West. The United States commission on fisher ies has recently recommended to con gress to prohibit all taking of sturgeon for live years. Rutland Herald.

May Be a Future Chemical Storehouse of Tower. Sodium you may remember it from your high school days. It floats on water and burns as it floats. You had to dodge the final "s ppt" as the Hume went out ! Sodinm is contained in the salt you use at the table. And now the proosal has been made to use sodium as a chem ical storehouse for power. It is reported that Henry Ford intends to use sodium at Muscle Shoals in this way. At low water the Tennessee river could produce relatively little power, compared with the maximum at flood times. It is proposed that during periods of high water some ot tne excess available power be used to produce metallic sodium from salt by the electrical cur rent. This sodiftm would then be stored under oil until the period of low water arrived. Then the sodium would be used in place of the electric current to carry out processes demanding large amounts of energy such as the making of alumi num, magnesium and other light metals The article, Metallic Sodium, is the first of two on the subject -to be published in Chemical and Metallurgical Engineer ing. This installment discusses the meth ods used in making metallic sodium from salt, soda aud other materials by the use of the electric current. The history of these processes from the early days of the century when Sir Humphrey Davy first made the metal, to the latest improve ments, are discussed in detail.
