ositions at this seseion.

RICHES OF NORTHERN SWEDEN.
Vast Iron and Lumber Country Opened
Up by a New Railroad.
The northern part of King1 ' Oscar's
realm has often been called "Sweden's
America" because of the richness of
the land, although it is still unculti
vated,' says the Stockholm correspond
dent of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
The poorer class prefer to emigrate to
the United States 'instead of seeking
new homes in Nordland, because that
part of the kingdom lacked means of
communication by land with the capi
tal. The coast cities suffered in the
winter when ice covered the 6ea as
much as the interior settlements suf
fered the year round. When it was
discovered that ' there were great hid
den riches there for the frovernment,
it decided to grant money for the
building of a railway. The Northern,
trunk line is now complete, and has
been opened by the king. He is said
to be Sweden's ablest orator, 'and he
made the "speech of his life." . The fes
tivities surpassed anything ever seen
here. The new railroad connects at
Boden, near the Gulf of Bothnia, with
the northernmost railroad in the world,
running'from the seaport of Lulea up
to the Gellivara iron mountains, forty
seven miles north of the polar circle.
This road has been in operation two
years. It may be considered the end
piece of a continuous line of railroad
about 1,250 miles long, reaching north
and south the whole length of Sweden.
The completion of this line, it is be
lieved, will materially check immigra
tion to America. Nordland contains
more than 20 per cent, of the lum
ber of the world, and more than
Canada and almost twice, as much
as the United States. The famqus iron
mines, the largest in existence, are
capable of supplying the world for
centuries. The scenery is highly pic
turesque, and the new road presents
much for tourists.
Masher Makes a Mistake in His Cal
She was a cute, pretty little thing, so
small that her feet didn't touch the
floor of the car. It worried her, too,
for occasionally she tugged away at
her skirt to hide the display of silken

self-satisfied man took a seat beside
