week ago Monday evening. The
casion was a surprise on Albert Ol

and the fact that the members of the
family had retired when the guests
came, showed that nothing of the
kind was suspected. The evening
was spent in a social way. Lunch was
served. Rev. Ericson and A. J. Ol
son gave short talks. Mr. Olson wa^
presented with about $54 in cash as
a gift from the guests. Mr. Olson

able to be around again.

known that he is very far from being
an orthodox Lutheran christian. The
proposition has aroused a great con*
troversy, and P. P. Walderstrom, the
leader of the Mission Covenant, has
•aid that "there is fire in every corner
of our state church." By this he
means that the state church seems to
be unable to satisfy the needs of the

It has been ascertained that Hans

Borlieu's reputation as a genius suf

It has been known for some time
past that the country around Trond
hjem was fairly well populated during
the stone age. Piles of chips of flint
and occasionally flint tools have been
found at about 150 different places,
and each place marks what may be
called a flint tool shop. Such places
have been discovered farther and far
ther north, the northernmost one being
located at Rodo, many miles north of
the polar circle. It was formerly sup
posed that the flint had been imported
from the south, but now this theory
must be abandoned on account of the
large quantity of materials found.
This flint must have been found chief
ly in the northern part of the Scandi
navian peninsula. The find mentioned
was taken to the museum at Tromso,
while all the rest are kept at the
Trondhjem museum. Only a very
small part of it is on exhibition.

In Scandinavia, it is understood, they

wireless stations in Norway, Sweden
and Denmark and the Norwegian
government, subject to parliamentary
sanction, has now given them a con
tract concerning the construction of
powerful wireless stations in Norway
and In the vicinity of New York. This
contract is on mutual terms of bene
fit and covers twenty-five years from
now. The location of the Norwegian
station, which will cost about $500,
(000, has not yet been decided on, but
it will be somewhere on the west
coast The conditions for a wireless
service between Norway and New
York are considered extremely favor
able. Presumably the station will
serve Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Fin
land, Russia and north Germany.
The head of the Swedish state tele
graphs is very favorably inclined to
ward his government taking up a

Marconi. Before going into a large
