LADY VOX SCIIEKLK.
The present week will le one of

At 10:30 the bishop officiated at
high mass at the same church, the
edifice being packed to the doors. It
is said there were fully 2,500 people
in attendance. Among the digni
taries on the altar were Da. E. A. Xor
elius, president of Augustana sj-nod;
Swedish-German ancestry. He was
born in Stockholm May lit, 1S3S. His
father was a minister anil the son
received u liberal education. 'When
lh years of age, however, his eye
sight failed and for six years he was
unable to read. During that time he
made steady advances in his studies
with the aid of other students, who
read to him, and laid the foundation
for that remarkable memory which
has distinguished him on many an
occasion. With the recovery of hiss
power of vision he took to the ca
reer of an educator and stendily
rose to his present eminence. From
a private instructor he advanced by
degrees till he received the appoint
ment of professor of Apologetics and
Encyclopedics at the university of
I'psala which position he still tills.
Ordained In 1877.
He was ordained to the ministry
in li-72 and later became a member
of the Swedish congress and from
that time on he wielded a consider
able political power in the affairs of
the nation. Among prominent po
sitions he has held are president of
four Swedish Luuieran conferences,
president of the Eleventh world's
congress of the Y. M. C. A. in 18SS,
delegate from the state church of
Sweden to visit the churches in
America in 1893, at which time he
visited Kock Island, and personal
representative of King Oscar of
Sweden at the establishment in
President Andreen, Dr. XV. T. For
sander, and Drs. Lindberg and
Youngert. The ladies of the bish
op'u party were accompanied by Mrs.
C. A. Hemborg, wife of the pastor of
the church. Bishop von Scheele was
attired in his official robes and based
his sermon on Matthew ix 18:26.
The visiting party lunched at the
home of Rev. Hemborg and in the
evening the bishop poke on "The In
formation" at Augustana college
chapel before a large audience.
The bishop showed that the imme
diate causes that led up to the lie
formation were not whims of Martin
Luther, but it was the result of evils
existing at that time. The speaker
also pointed out how the Lutheran
church differed from the Reformed
church and how both differed from
the Catholic church. The tendency
to misinterpret liberty as license
was shown to exist since the French
revolution, and-as exemplifying this
fact the assassination of President
McKInley was cited, and in this con
nection an eloquent tribute was paid
Kt- Rev. Bishop von Scheele is of 1
Jerusalem by Emperor William II of
the church of the Redeemer in 1898.
The bishop is the plenipotentiary tf
his sovereign on the present visit to
tfie churches of America.
famed aa Author.
If the bishop has won distinction
as si churchman, scholar, statesman
and orator, he has also made himself
powerfully felt as an author. He has
produced many works of great value
on a variety of subjects. He is also
a linguist of no mean ability, being
particularly proficient in German.
Personally he is tall and command
ing in appearance and of a very mag
netic personality. In general out
line of feature he has been likened to
the late James G. Blaine.

AN OPAL CANNOT BE LOST.
Apparent Verification of a Virtue Claimed
For the Alleged Unlucky Gem.
A wealthy broker of West Philadel
phia hid a rather singular experience
tho other day. He and his family have
had in their possession for a number of
years some very handsome opals, but
the superstition which was formerly en
tertained concerning the stone being nn
locky prevented him making use of the
gems. Last year he took a trip to Eu
rope. While in London ha met at the
house of a mutual friend a dealer in
precious stones, who had just come from
Gracias a Dios, in Honduras, and had
brought back some fine gems.
Instead of putting any faith in the
popular superstition this gentleman be
lieved in the opal very thoroughly and
attributed to it virtues which no other
gem possessed. Among the things which
he said about it was that the opal was
attached to its owner by invisible cords
and that it was impossible to lop it,
though it might be mislaid. The Phila
delphia broker on his return to Phila
delphia chose tho finest opal in his col
lection, had it set in a ring, surrounded
by small diamonds, and at Christmas
presented it to his wife. It was truly a
beauty, and she wore it with conscious
One day on returning from a day's
outing she received quite a shock- the
opal was gone. Search proved vain. Ho
trace of the stone could she discover.
Not only on account of its value, but
because she knew how highly her hus
band prized the stone, she hated to in
form him of her loss. At last she felt
obliged to do so, when, greatly to her
astonishment, be drew from bis vest
pocket a tiny package and presented it
to her. Upon opening it what was her
delight when she recognized hex lost
More astonishing still, her husband
affirmed that while be was walking
down Chestnut street a day or two be
fore he felt something tinder the sole of
his shoe, which upon investigation
proved to be the opal which he had last
seen shimmer ins UDon his wife's finaer.
There was no a era DC about it being the
lost one, for the jeweler who had set
it recognized 1t also. Philadelphia
Bow a IMaloeated Jaw Was Put Back
Into IU Flaoa.
W hile talking in his sleep Henry
Flocke, a builder, residing in Ozone
Park, L. L dislocated his jaw. Mr.
Flocke's habit of talking in his sleep
has made him the butt of a good deal of
joking. He went to bed as usual, but he
had not slept long when he began talk
ing. This awoke his wife, who listen
ed for about ten minutes. Suddenly
Flocke's nocturnal monologue stopped.
He began gasping. Mrs. Flocke was
frightened, and she shook her husband
"Why, what's the matter, Henry?"
Her husband tried to speak, but in
vain. His jaw was immovable. He mo
tioned to his wife that he could not
speak, and she endeavored to force his
mouth shut. She could not move it.
Fearing her husband wan suffering from
lockjaw, she sent for Dr. McDonald.
"Do you want me to replace yonr
jaw in my own way?" asked the doctor.
Mr. Flocke motioned in the affirma
tive. Dr. McDonald stepped in front of
Flocke. Withont warning the doctor
struck Flocke a terrifio blow on the left
side of the jaw. Flocke showed a dispo
sition to strike back.
"Yon told me to do it my own way,"
said the physician. "You observe that
your ability to speak is restored."
The blow had knocked Flocke's dislo
cated jawbone into its proper position,
and except for a little soreness he was
none the worse. Dr. McDonald explained
that Flocke's jaw was liable to disloca
tion at any time unless he broke him
self of the habit of talking in his sleep.

A Disappointed Diplomat.
An interesting story is told in Wash
ington regarding M. Patenotre, the
French embassador. After congress
passed the law empowering tho presi
dent to send embassadors to such coun
tries as would raise the rank of theii
representatives, Sir Julian Pauncefote
was the first to inform the president of
the intention of his country to make
him an embassador. M. Patenotro con
ceived the ambition to be the dean of
the embassadors and communicated it
to his borne government, and his com
mission arrived before Sir Julian's. He
went to the state department in the
hope of immediate recognition us the
first embassador to this country. He was
told that Sir Julian had anticipated him
by informing the department of the ac
tion of his government. He was angry.
and wrote to the president requesting
his intervention. He received instead a
chilly letter from Mr. Gresham.
"Any emphasis given to academic
gymnastics that goes beyond the point

pline, and to that degree blocks the
wheels of all proper college intention,"
