But his pains do not pre vent him from taking active part in discussing the manner in which his plays are to be handled at the thea ters. The latest historical research has been questioning the theory that King Gustaf II Adolf actually fell at what Is called "The Swedish Stone," at Lutzen, Germany, and that his body was kept and embalmed in the church •f the little village of Meuchen, as held by tradition. In connection with this discussion it is interesting to note that said church is being thoroly re* paired and put in modern shape. Dur ing this work a search was made for the wooden urn in which, according to tradition, was kept- the blood washed from the king's body, as well as parts of his intestines. At the west gable was found a cylindrical crypt made of brick. It was about one foot deep and one foot wide, and in this were found some decayed bits of wood, a few rusty nails, and remains of iron trimmings. It is certain that these objects are remains of the wooden urn which tradition has stuck to for almost 300 years. NORWAY. The Red Cross of Norway has re ceived a gift of $3,000 from Gen. Thanlow.

There are many good people In the Scandinavian countries that feel pret ty uneasy about the increasing strength of the temperance element •nd the prohibitionists. A few years •go a number of prominent Nor wegians started a society called "For Freedom and Culture an«T against Pro hibition and Coercian," as a means of checking the aggressive prohibition propaganda.

NEWS FROM FATHERLAND -A Brief Resume of. the Most Im portant Happenings in the German Empire. A most happy event is anticipated in the family, of the future heir ap parent of Austria-Hungary. The German settlement at Uladbes sam, Morocco, has been devastated by Arab troops, and a torch was applied to the buildings. It is said that the commanders of the troops were Frenchmen. Erl, a little village in the Austrian Tyrol, just across the line between Munchen and Innsbruck, is about to stage a rival passion play to the one that is given at Oberammergau. It is more than a century since the pas sion play was given at Erl every ten years, but the place is entirely off the tourist track and is little heard of now. The villages on learning of the for tunes made by the Oberammergau folks determined to profit by their ex ample and add commercialism to piety and to foster tourist trade. "Charming" is the right word for Berlin this time of the year. The kaiser's capital is looking its finest for the throngs of American visitors who are now arriving on every steam er. The last fortnight of April was characterized by a spell of wintry weather, with frost and snowstorms, but May has been. accompanied by Ideally seasonable conditions. The jbeautiful Tiergarten has sprung into leaf and blossom like magic and the summer gardens and race courses, where society and tourists congregate, are in full blast. Messages from Gmunden say that the .castles of the Archduke Johann Orth, which are situated in Orth, near Gmunden, will be sold to an American millionaire, who will spend the great er part of the summer there, and in tends to convert the buildings into magnificent summer palaces. The name of the purchaser has so far been kept secret. An official declara tion of the death of Johann Orth was publisked some months ago. Orth castle consists of a country and a lake residence, massive buildings, with domed towers, dating from the four teenth century. The lake castle rises on a small island in the Gmunden lake, being connected with the land by a picturesque bridge. It was con structed on the remains of a Roman castle. Among the delegates from Germany to the world's Methodist conference in Minneapolis, was- Rev. Wilhelm Schultz, D. D. He said that Kaiser Wilhelm is greatly interested in the Methodist work. "While the kaiser Is a'member of the state church, which Is Lutheran, he is a friend of the Methodists," said Dr. Schultz. "We have seven delegates present from Germany, three laymen and four min isters. In Germany *we have 30,000 members and nearly 40,000 Sunday school scholars. The church property Is valued at $1,000,000, and the cause of Methodism in Germany is prosper ing. The labor question is the most vital problem in-Germany, and is giv ing both the emperor and the govern ment much trouble. Where_,it will end only God knows." Count Paul Wolff-Metternich has re signed his office as German ambassa dor to Great Britain, and the name of Baron Marschall von Bieberstein, at present German ambassador at Constantinople and Germany's fore most diplomat, has been submitted to the British government as his succes sor. The nomination as ambassador to London of a statesman of Marschall von Bieberstein's prominence, accord ing to an inspired dispatch from Ber lin to the'.',kolnlschd Zeitung, shows the importance that Germany attaches to its relations with Great Britain. The dispatch intimates that the new ambassador will initiate a somewhat altered policy toward England, al though definite developments cannot be expected until he has familiarized himself with the ground. .- r~- .'- There are only six Social Demo crats In the Prussian house of depu ties.

Again and again Mr. Bor chardt interrupted the speaker. The president ordered him to stop and sit down, but he refused to obey, and the president declared that he would be Bhut out of the meeting. But even this threat failed to make any impression npon Mr. Borchardt. Then' the presi dent adjourned the session and or dered "five sturdy policemen who car ried Mr. Borchardt out on the street He soon returned, and was thrown sut a second time. The president of the Prussian house of deputies has authorityHo take such steps, but it is stated that Mr. Borchardt is the first man on whom the rule has been ap plied. A motion will soon be intro duced for the purpose of preventing a handful of members from blocking the business of the house.

The contest for presidential and governorship hou ors were very similar, and in each case two progressives were pitted against th* present Incumbent, and each wished to wrest the delegation away from the re actionary and yet keep it for himself. Thus the LaFollette and Roosevelt forc es were both against Taft and yet each wantea their own man to win and the Lee and the Gordon forces were both _,. against Eberhardt and yet each" wanted their favorite to win. In spite of the fact that each governorship candidate claimed to be taking no part in the pres idential contest, yet there was a cer tain "community of Interest" between the Taft and Eberhart forces, the Roosevelt and Gordon forces and the LaFollette and Lee forces, at. least as it appears to us at this distance. The last published returns, which were nearly complete, give LaFollette 362, Lee 331 ^Vi Roosevelt 3*o, Gordon 253 Taft S.". Eberhart 1*0. Spooner received i0 votes. The result in Kandiyohi shows how strongly progressive the most of the voters are and that when given the op portunity tuey will make short wor* of reactionary candidates. Personally, we would have preferred to see the delegk* tion there go to Gordon, but as Mr. Goi don has repeatedly said, the cause for which he is fighting is bigger than any onejnan—and then there are lots of counties to hear from yet.—Morris Trlb- -j Bsoapes Am Awtal-«ase.
