Articles of incorporation for
" Schroener 's Scientific Gardens" were
filed today at the offiee of the corpora
tion commissioner. The object of the
corporation as set forth in the articles
is the "study and advancement of the
science of plant development and the
production of better nquaintanee and
closer association between those inter
ested in botany and Horticulture, with
out pecuniary profit to the association
or its members." The property of the
corporation is. valued at $500 and it
proposes to sell, and give away plants,
seeds, shrubs and, such whenever the

The moving spirit in the actual sci
entific work is Father Schroener, who
made such wonderful progress while he
remained at Brooks in the production
or new species of plants, flowers veget
ables and shrub9. Father Schroener has
become recognized as- one of the fore
most botanists in ihe world and even
with his limited quarters and more lim
ited means at Brooks he worked marv
els in the realm of plants. With the
support of tho men who are backing the
enterprise Father Schrocner's friends
predict that the quiet little priest will
become as famous as Luther Bnrbnn'
and that he will work wonders iu rose

hobbios. r ; s

The English blockade has so injured I
Sweden's trade with Germany that
there is now a large class in Sweden
that apparently favors going to mar on j
ut side of the Teutonic. allies. In easel
the unexpected happens and Sweden ac-:
tually does go into the war the follow .
iug propositions will hold true:
1. Sweden could harrnss the army I
of Kussia by an invasion through Fin
land." The topography of Finland would
make it necessary for the invaders to
advance along the railroad lines almost
exclusively. The Fins are more favor
ably disposed toward Sweden than Rus
sia and probably would aid the in
vaders. 2. Sweden's entrv iuto the war
iwould lay its Baltic coasts open to Kus
sian raids, and its merchant marine,
! whose tonnage is now about 1.230,000,
would undoubtedly suffer. Sweden V
land trength numbers about tiOO.OOO.

3. Norway's vast stretch of ex
, posed const line makes her participation
; in the war extremely doubtful.
