Although several nations in Southern Europe. !
far from deciding definitely not to enter the war,
seem to be deliberately watching for chances to
take the plunge when ami where it will be most '
effective, the peaceful countries of the North, — i
Denmark. Norway and Sweden.—have yet to give j
the slightest evidence that they will turn belliger- >
ent at any time during the war. They certainly are
ci|A'ontiug many difficulties in preserving their j
Their entry into the conflict could j
be accomplished if their people were strongly j
to tight.
Scandinavian countries, whose existence prac
tically depends ou their commerce, are iu an un
pleasant situation, with the Baltic and North Seas
well mined, and the German blockade in operation.
Many Norwegian vessels have been interfered with
by the blockade, —and lirtle wonder, since they are
part of the third largest mercantile marine in
Europe and their vessels are numerous ou the seas.
Norway, although exposed to the North Sea and
in some danger in ease a naval engagement takes
place in that vicinity.—a not altogether unlikely
event, —is uot. however, so situated as to be threat
ened by an immediate neighbor as is Sweden. Al
though this latter natiou has no desire for a reunion
with Finland, yet it has watched with some misgiv
ings the Russitication of the little province, aud. in
the fear of Russian advances iu Scandinavia, had
even before the outbreak of the war made provisions
for army and navy increases for the national de
Denmark, it has been pointed out. lias found se
curity in royal marriages, but even in Denmark
there have been grievances, especially growing out
of the endeavors of Germany to Germanize the
Danes in northern Schleswig, the territory ceded to
Prussia by Denmark in the war with Prussia and
Austria in 1864.
The people of the Scandinavian countries may
have differing sympathies but their fortunate lack
of inclinations to enter the war and their wise desire
to njute for the preservation of their neutrality
combine to keep them at peace and. it is most likely,
Kh serve to that end throughout the entire period
ff hostilities.
German scientists evidently working on the as
sumption that if all other sources of supplies fail,
air at least cannot be denied them, have, according
lo an account from Berlin, perfected a process by
which they may obtain nitrogenous compounds
From the atmosphere. The dispatch goes on to say
that this process will make possible cheaper ferti
liser than nitrates from Chile. Even if it were not
i cheaper process, it would surely be a more desir
ible one than that in which the compounds from
Chile are employed, in view of the fact that imports
to Germany which may be used in the manufac
ture of explosives are not frequent these days.
It is a eause of wo*der, surely, when scientists
san.reach into the air,'as it were and obtain the
nitrogenous compounds they want without bother
ing Chile or any other foreign country about it.
The air is inexhaustible and a more certain source
)f supply could hardly be found. What the nature
the process is by which the invisible atmosphere
s made to yield one of its elements for the produc
tion of tangible compounds to be used in fertilizing
the eartft and perhaps in divers other ways, is not
for unscientific persons to sonjecture.
The fact that the air is in composition four
fifths nitrogen only explains that the element is
there and not by any means how it may be ex
tracted. This odorless, colorless, tasteless, harmless
nitrogen is mixed freely with the oxygen and the
less important gases in the air of Germany as well
as of all other couutries. It has been breathed by
the peoples of the whole world every second sipce
the world began; yet the Germans, pressed by ne
cessity and naturally ingenious, are reported now
for the first time to have fouud how to get at it and
to put it to a new and very practical use.
A queer thing was done with invisible nitrogen
when it was liquefied, and many other queer things
can be expected to be accomplished not only with
this gas but with othere upon which experiment#
are constantly being made. The discovery of a new
chemical process, strange as that process may seem,
is never anything more than the revelation of one
more of the many laws of nature which previously
had been hidden from inquiring man.

This would be quite a festive session of the legislature
if as much fuss were made over the birthday of every
! legislator as was made over that of Senator Craw.
It looks as though the members of the legislative party
who are going to attend the launching of the battleship
"Pennsylvania" next week will have to black their own

In 1913 She Foretold the War
The New Bloomfiehl, Pa., "Times,"
on November 27, 1913, printed an ar
ticle headed *' Troublous Times For
seeii for 1914, —Pessimistic Predictions
of Mme. Tliebe, French Prophet, I>o
Not Affect U. S." In view of the sit
uation in Europe since tlio war started
it is interesting to repeat the "Times"
comment to show how clo.-« the pre
dictions have come to being aiccurate:
"If all or even a part of Mine. The
be's predictions for the year 1914
come true, United States, aud Philadel
phia especially, will be tht> only safe
place for any one to live in. The fa
mous woman who has forseeu most of
the recent great catastrophies of the
■world says it is net true, as some of
the astrologers hold, that the world is
coming to au end iu 1914, but the
French woman iJocs say that next year
is to be one of the most unlucky the
world has ever known.
' The planet Mars will predominate
through all of next year. Mars indi
cate?, she says, that war will be threat
ened if it does not actually occur. This
is taken by some to apply to the pres
ent Mexican crisis but war is but one
of the few predictions of trouble. Lon
don is to be threatened by floods; *
terrible cat as trophy .taking place, as a
result of the inundations, that will
grouse the pity of the whole civilized
"If the woman's predictions come
true next year, as they have a great
manv years in the past, the world
might just as well come to an en'd.
"The prophet also says Portugal is
to see a restoration of the Monarchy;
Austria will be sorely tried with riot
| ings; there is to be bloodshed and tire
! in the streets of Yieuna, even worse
! than the Austria-Hungarian troubles
which startled the entire world.
"Germany is to witness a severe up
! heaval, which will make many changes
jin her national life. France is proni
-1 ised riots, bloodshed and industrial
, troubles; but America is to have a
peaceful year, the woman vouchsafes.
1 and she warns all people to seek refuge
j in this country if they want to be free
| from trouble next year."

An Interrupted Chat
A pleasant-faced little girl left Sun-
Uiay school early recently and not see
ling her mamma about started for a
1 short walk alone. She walked into
j the arms of a bluecoat in Market
i Square and was escorted to Police
I Headquarters where she entertained
| half a dozen coppers with her bright
'chatter about the "movie*'' and other
' interesting topics. She did not mind
j telling family secrets an\l' for the edi-j
fication of the policemen she said her
papa lived in a nearby town and that
whenever she went to see him her
■ mamma spunked her. Policemen gave
her pennies and enjoyed the call im
i mensely. Then suddenly her mother
{ appeared.
,' "Didn't I tell you never to leave
Sunday school without me?" the moth-1
ler asked severely, and with a threat
' of a spauking when she got home sht?,
;draggei out the little girl. It broke'
| up the pleasant visit and the policemen
1 were so disappointed that none of them
.-poke for what seemed five minutes.
