whoael raids were dreaded from the Baltic
to the shores of Portugal. Once "the snow
majes iy of the north," the noble and
might Ouatavus Adolphus (ltUl-lKE), ruled
over jne of the three world powers of
Euroi , which were England, France and
. then '
Once Sweden was the home of
n. In those days the Swedish char-
was historically creative and pollt-
ambltloua. Gustavug Adolphus threw
soldiers Into Germany In the Thirty
war and hi genius, generalship and
wladoifa achieved the glorious Independence
of a I Protestant civilisation from the
threatfened subjection under a Latin, South
Europtean type of civil and religious life.
Moderln history was rescued. Today the
Land (of the Midnight Sun la the home of
an lntl-lllgent, gentle and gifted people that
are otlit of the great race of the military
s ef Europe. How could the pow-
people of Quatavua Adolphus be-

While Sweden lost her prestige she turned
to tk4 Inner life. The peaceful arts have
thrtvell the mote tht last 4) years.
Moderkt education the world over knows
the SiieeUah "sloyd." or manual training.
and the revolution It Is effecting inthe
entire school system . of today. There
are less Illiterates In Sweden than In our
own land. Sweden's literature Is a, mar
vel of beauty, as the language Itself Is
one of the world's moat expressive, finished
and ringing. The lyrical (song) poetry
often matches Heine and Shakespeare at
their very best You may go among Nha
upper .classes or the peasantry, every
where the prevailing tone is refined. In
this one respect the German falls by com
panion, is angular, provocative and In.
cllned to resentment. As the Swedes are
a nation of fine, well-nigh fad (wehmu
tlg) feelings, whatever they do and say
tends to have that same spirit. There iJ
as much feeling In the Swede as there Is
will In the Independent, charactered Nor
wegl:in. At the tame time the Swede is
a calm and clear thinker. Had the pro
found philosopher Bostrom been a German
and not a Swede, his gigantic personality-philosophy
would have been one of the
grand landmarks of thought. But the
Swedes are poor at self-advertisement (ex
cept In the present general srlkel). In
fact, they have been a little too proudly
Indolent to make their treasures known
and hence Bostrom has remained exclu
sively a Swedish figure. If the Swede
would exchange some of their refined
backwardness for a little of the almost
Celtic push and clamor of the Norwegians,
the world would be astontuhed at the
wealth of Intellectual, spiritual and artistic
attainments of the people In that pretty
land of the midnight sun.
Southern Sweden somewhat resembles
Iowa and Illinois plus a certain picturesque
northern cast of the landscape. Middle
Sweden Inclines to become rugged, es
pecially toward Norway. Northern Sweden
Is an Irregular foot-hill country worn
down by the Norwegian glaciers, and U
the most sombre and wild, romantic and
mysterious part of the land. There the
midnight sun blazes all through the night
of early summer, a sight of gorgeous, yet
calm aplendor. Farthest north you have
bald hllla and bogs like in Finland and
Russia. Of the ten Eurupeann capitals I
have seen, Stockholm has the most glorious
situation, Berne of the Swiss Alps alone
contending with the northern metropolis.
Situated on Islands and ragged, rocky
shores of the world-famous "spaergord"
) (skerry walls) of Stockholm in that
strangely luminous atmosphere of northern
land that seems like a prism, Stockholm Is
a city of Indescribable loveliness. Not so
much the civic works as the location
astitilshed and pleased me beyond telling.
Sweden la not a wealthy land, consider
able of Its natural -esources are, though,
underworked, and too often In the hands
of foreigners. Its cities evidence the fact.
You will not seek Berlin's civic pomp here.
But If you love pleasing effects, homey,
cheery, fresh and bright sights and a
population that knows how to enjoy life
In a prevailingly cultured and hearty man
ner, then look to the luminous cupltal of
the north, beautiful Stockholm. Would
this city command the wealth of London
or Paris,' those strategically beautiful Is
lets and shores would offer the finest op
portunity for architectural magnificence
and Janscape architecture of perhaps any
capital in Europe. But the Swedes nre not
now a commerlcal people, do not love
money for money's sake as we Americans,
though they are faithfully Industrious and
poNsessed of actual genius for mechanical
engineering of every kind. (Our John
Erickson of "Monitor and Merrimac" fame
was trained in Sweden. Swedish civil
and mechanical engineers are found all
over America and the world). Therefore
Stockholm can hardly become Just such a.
show place as Berlin. Its palace Is a plain,
but quite majestic structure. Perhaps the
finest new building is the superb "Nor
dlska museet" (Northern museum). In a
sort of Swedish Rococo style of arch
itectureas atrlklng a piece of work as the
similar German Rococo "Rathhaus" of
Liepzlg. And what a stroke of genius the
conception of h1s museum and Its open
air consort. "Skanseii," out ou a most
captivating peninsula, formerly a royal
park. In the museum all the provinces of
Sweden are represented in, different rooms.
This is the pea Hunt department. In upper
stories there comes a chronological display
from the middle and higher classes. Here
you can see how the people lived In their
homes, the furniture, the clothes, the
utensils, and the national costumes on
fairly good wax figures. Out on the rocky,
woody "Skansrn," Sweden's folk games
and folk dances are given every day by
experts. Characteristic pe.rsant cottages
have been brought In from all over the
land. Home pleasantry and folk music
are offered In these, while national amuse
ments, such as the "Maypole" are engaged
in out of doors during the proper season.
Folk life addresses and lectures, folk con
certs. Instruction in questions of import
ance to home and church and state any
thing that tends to waken the national
sense or to reimburse the national con
sciousnes finds artistic and scientific
treatment. It la an open air ethnological
exhibition and university in real life and
for Sweden's cutiunoi, peuple especially.
The patriotic and educational value of this
unique Institution h.ss been. is. and will
be Immense. Nothing in all Snedt.n In
terested me quite as much, hardly the
surging green Trollhattan falls, or the long
and narrow ihaisn-luke of Fryken. or
Gustaf Vaea's realms in far north
Dalarne. Even my cathedral enthusiasm,
satisfied so thoroughly at that aublimest
church of Sweden, the cathedral of Lund,
or at the larger restored Gothic temple of
Upsala. almost yielded to the prophetic
Seeden Is coming to her old self again,
I hope, even If first through more agony
and a deeper crisis, what and when; only
the God cf history knows. She has had too
much of the French for IIS years, too little
of her native sturdy Swedish. Remarkable,
though, how exceptionally flno her develop
ment has been. If we except the American,
British and Scandinavian liquor evil and
the too prevalent habit of cursing. There
are 2,000,000 Swedes and Swedish-Americans
in the United States. If the legal frater
nity should depend on these for their ex
perience" at the bar and for Income U(o
lawyer's profession would be no attraction.
The criminal history of our land has a com
paratively brief story to tell so far of the
misdeeds of Swedes and their descendants.
There must, therefore, have been some
splendid training over In the good land of
Sweden to make such results possible. The
Lutheran church of the country, whatever
her numerous faults, )as deeply Influenced
the Inner life of the people. Jt has often
stood for high Ideals, all things consid
ered. Sweden's rulers have generally been
men of manly motives, not always great
men, but kindly and fatherly toward the
people. Moreover, the Swiles are not a
passionate nation of extreme tendencies,
but harmony loving. They might, In a nay,
be called the Greeks of the north, so calm
and contemplative are they and warm of
sentiment without thu white heat of peoples
with a more pronounced will. Where but
In Sweden could a general strike be carried
on In all lines of Industry so peacefully,
with a royal order forbidding the s-ale of
Intoxicants, and that manifesto almost be
coming the new platform of the labor
unions themselves? A week ago the strik
ers threatened to boycott the Stockholm sa
loons climax of labor union humor!
Next to Stockholm I think that the most
characteristic single number for the tourist
is the famous trip on the Gotha canal
from Gothenburg to Stockholm, or Its best
part, from Stockholm to Jonkoping, the
city on Lake Vettern with Naples-like sur
roundings. You go clean across the coun
try from the southwest to the capital on
the Baltic, midway up the east coast. Over
the plains, through the large lake of Ven
em, again on the Ostgotha plain, then Into
tho crystal clear, easily stormy ,Luke Vet
tern, over hill districts and peaceful lake
lit . Into the Skaersord of Stockholm the
entire ay teems with Interest of a placid
and often amazingly lovely order. No Eu
ropean Journey excels this tour In Its own
line. It is not the Norwegian grandeur,
but the pleasing, winsome, fair Swedish
type of scenery you get on this ca"fral.
Sweden's s.enery ha its counterpart
In Sweden's men and women of genius.
Not grandly wild and awesome as the
Norwegian fie'ids and Norway's Ibsen, but
beautiful In the Greek sense of fine har
mony, calm contemplation, a very soul
ful and spiritual profundity. Few peuple
of the world have been so innately re
ligious as the Swedes. True, the country
Is since some fifteen years in the midst
of a serious Intellectual, social and relig
ious crisis. Young Saeden, whatever its
hot aspirations may be, falls far behind
the Immediately preceding generation, the
men and women over 20 years of age.
The German socialistic Ideas have tem
porarily crazed and bewildered the funda
mentally moderate and thoughtful Swede.
There ate grievous reason for social un
rest inherited from the past. Wages have
till lately been low. The poor a ere
obliged to hold their cap in hand ab
jectly to their euperlors. Sweden's most
unprofitable capital has for two centuries
been, not Its excellent common people, but
Its laiy, too much pleasure-loving men of
business and gentry. The state church
question also of late agitates many, as
all over Europe In Protestant or Roman
or Greek countries. A state church Is from
now on an anachronism, whatever Us un
doubted services In former ages and these
are very considerable when studied his
torically. The norpially kind Swedish mind
Is at present In a flutter. There is an
anxious feeling in men's hearts, and a
grim look on the faces of some radicals.
Sweden must come back to her old fear
less sturdlness, is my deep conviction.
Tliut alono will solve the problem. The
courage, manliness, self-sacrifice, kernelly
mentality of the times of Gustavus Adol
phus must return. To her old-time beauti
ful contemplation and nobility of purpose,
unparallellcd hospitality, almost spiritual
seriousness and honesty, still with hot
in a nilldened decree, must cume more
determination to dure and to do, to battle
In deed as well as word. She needs no
less refinement and no less spiritual sincer
ity, but she must acquire boluness to act
quickly and w Isely in a cris;s ond to hit
hard when necessary. It will not harm
her, if she adds to her sensitiveness,
courtesy and regaid, the German and Nor
wegian emphasis to convictions' and accent
to the deeds. In many pelnts she has no
superior in Europe, particularly In Inner
fineness of mind and rather unmaterlalis
tlc view of life. Scholarship and culture
stand In higher repute there than In our
own laud almost. She has had and hsu
men and women of towering excellence.
Linne was hers, our Johu Erlvsun too.
Jenny Llnd and Christine Nelson were her
daughters. Great philosophers like Geljer
and Bostrom have taught her thinking
men. Eminent poets as the soaring Ideal
ist Tegner (Longfellow translated his
"Children of the Lord's Supper quite
meritoriously) and thai national bard,
Sweden's Schiller, Runeberg, and other
lyric and epic poets of exquisite genius
sang In her realm. As we may expect, she
has no eminent dramatist; her mind Is
lyrical and epic. All probabilities point
toward the granting of the next Nobel
literary prize to her now world-known
novelist. Selma Lagerlof. The most cul
tured monarch of his time was the late
venerable, Oscar II. I can name only a few
of her mighty ones. There has for genera
tions been an abundance of rich personali
ties within her borders. When a powerful
impetus la once given to tl.e Swedish will,
Sweden can yet again take her rank
among tiie most influential of nations. It
rests with her to waken and focus her
really superb, but scattered energies ii. a
few momentous and actualized convictions
of heart and mind and life. Will she? She
can. If she will!
Sweden is a land of many charms, a
very haven of restful pleasures. And, oh,
the self-sacrificing hospitality of Its cheer
ful homes! To the thoughtful tourist there
Is a strange mysticism In nature and In
man there, not of the gigantic, Ibsenesque
Norwegian type, but of the heart of things,
a land of song sad songs, where the
fireside tale that la told receives a touch
from mystical realms of blissful loveliness.
a land of poets, singers and fruitful
thinkers. There dwells a people once In the
first ranks of Europe, at present in use
ful, retired quietness, but capable, under
God, of throwing lis many wonderous gifts
again Into the greater current,of universal
life, on the one condition of unequivocal
return to Its own fine genius.

"Boost for Omaha" Is the slogan of the
Knights of Ak-Sar-Uen and this motto will
prompt the men behind the fall festival to

One of the first moves of the Knights

"There Is no reason," as Mr. Penfold,
why Ak-Sar-Ben carnhal could not be ''
transformed Into an Ak-Sar-Ben exposi
tion, far greater In scope than the present
celebration. It Is my dream now Just a
filmy vision of the future but I believe
the dream will be realized.
"I want to see the Ak-Sar-Ben exposi

West celebration of Cheyenne and the
gaytty equaled nowhere In the orld of
New York's Coney Isle

should have a two-weeks' frolic of fun.
