wage earners and the value added by
manufacture Is very different from
that with respect to the gross value
of products, these differences being de

Knute Ntlson Says Clark's Ozark Tune
Is an Old Swedish Melody.
Senator Knuto Nelson, who Is n
Norseman, declares that Champ Clark's
campaign nnthem, "The noun' Dawg
of the Ozarks," Is not a Democratic
tune at all, but a base imitation of an
old Swedish viking song, nis fathers
he says, often went to victory with
that tuno in their cars. The senator's
version follows:
Naer Jag kom till staden's grin
Pojkar sparkar hunden mlnsy
Det goer de" samma om han ner blott hun,
De moste iluta att sparka honom runclt.
A literal translation, which save for
the meter Is almost word for word the
song they sing In the Ozarks, goe like
I camo to the city's pate.
The boys chased my doff.
This they did, though he's only a hound
They must stop kicking my doe around.
The song can be traced as far back
as the year 1200 and was probably old
then. The senator refers all request?
for the singing of the song to rcpro
sentatlvo Lobecli of Nebraska. Mr
Loberk Is a Swede, and the senatoi
says he can sing.

Christian Leden, Norwegian Ex
plorer, Back From the Arctic,
How They Killed a "Dovll" Who Fell
From the Skios Companion Left-to
Starve Land Trip Along Northwest
Passage to Siberia Planned.
After daring the perils of the arctic
for six months Christian Leden, a
Norwegian explorer, returned to Now
York recently en route to Chrlstlauia
with what he believes to bo the first
authentic tidings of tho fate of Salo
mon August Audree's balloon ipiest
for tho north pole.
Mr. Leden Is a well known ethnolo
gist and, with Fritz Ilarald Thaulnw.
was ii)i)iiulsloncd by the Ibiyal mu
seum of Berlin, the University nf I;t
lln and the University of Chrlstlauia
to explore the unknown regions of
northwest Canada and obtain data
about the tribes of Indians in that
region, mauy of which had never be
fore been visited by white men. The
trip was made by way of the Cana
dian Pacific railroad to Kdmonton. Al
berta; up the Athabasca river to Lake
Athabasca, where the explorers were
met by agents of tho Hudson Bay
company, who provided them with
dogs, sledges and Eskimo guides.
Killed by Eskimos.
Mr. Leden said that at a point 200
miles north by west of the point at
which it bus been generally believed
that Andree perished ho encountered
a tribe of Eskimos who related a story
to tho effect that fifteen years ago a
large bubble fell from the heavens con
taining two creatures supposed to be
devils and that these creatures were
able to hurl forth smoke and thunder
from strange instruments that thev
carried. Members of the tribe attack
ed the two creatures and succeeded in
slaying one of them with arrows,
whereupon the other "devil" made mo
tions to them signifying tha.t he and
his companion were shooting at bird'J
for food and had come In peace.
When the Eskimos realized that they
had attacked human beings who had
no unfriendly motives they fled In dis
may, leaving the surviving white mnn
nlone. They relate that no other trace
of him was ever discovered.
Threo Years' Trip Planned.
Mr. Leden has conducted several ex
peditions to Greenland for ethnologi
cal research and is now on his way
back to Christian!:! to arrange for an
extended trip In the course of which
he will attempt to make a land pas
sage to the Bering strait, paralleling
the Northwest passage, and cross tho
Ice to East cape, Siberia. The Journey
will be made In the opposite direction
to that taken by Amundsen in bis ex
ploration of the Northwest territory
and Is expected to cover 3,000 miles,
the longest sledge Journey ever at
tempted by white men. There will be
six members of the party, representing
the University of Berlin and the Uni
versity of Christlanla, and each will
be provided with a sledge and dogs.
Nine Eskimos will nccompany tho ex
pedition, which is planned to start In
the spring of 1013. It is expected that
the trip will cover a period of three
years, as exhaustive ethnological and
mineraloglcal Investigations will bo
On his return from the extreme
northwest Mr. Leden came by way of
nudson bay and thence south past
Greenland. lie declares that the spring
season was much earlier this year and
that he witnessed tho breaking up of
the glaciers on tho const of Greenland
and the beginning of tho great Ice
drift of which the berg which destroy
ed the Titanic in nil probability was a
part. 'Within two months lie expects
to visit Greenland to complete investi
gations which he has already Institut
ed in previous trips.
Princeton University Has 150 Acres
Available For Agriculture.
Farming is to he taken up at Prince
ton university, not as n regular course,
but as a means of helping undergradu

through college. The farm Is to be
right on the campus, and the market
will bo found in town.
AVork will bo started at once and
will continue until next winter forces
u temporary abandonment of the farm.
Hazy as may sound the proposition to
come, yet It will without doubt bo a
reality. Tho trustees hnvo appointed a
committee to look Into tho plan.
The undergraduates are to do all
tho work in connection with tho farm.
One hundred and fifty acres aro avail
able for tho farm, and part of this will
bo turned and harrowed immediately.
The ground lies to the east of tho col
lego buildings, but is on tho campus.
Fresh vegetables will bo supplied to
tho university commons, where upward
of 700 students eat threo times a day.
The upper class clubs will also bo pro
vided, and trade will bo carried on
with the townspeople. Tho faculties
of tho university and tho seminary aro
also expected to be customers.
In tho summer those students who

Is the report that Warwick castle will
be let on a long lease to a wealthy
Warwick castle stands high above
the river Avon a little under 100 miles
to tho northwest of London. Exten- (
slvo lawns and gardens are Inclosed
within tho walls. Tho walls arc flank
ed by towers dating back to the four-J
teenth century. The highest of the
towers Is 147 feet In height. The view ,
from the castle along the Avon, with ,
its wooded banks. Is regarded as one '
of the most attractive In England. )
The castle was the scene of a fire In .
1S71. but the great hall and the otlmr
apartments which suffered were re
For many years the castle was In
volved In the wars of early England.
It was strengthened after the Norman
Invasion, Mini tnueli of the castle as It

recent th.-iu the battle of Hastings.
Tradition, however, dates the first
castle at Warwick back to the time of
Ethelfieda. daughter of King Alfred.
Henry III. made the castle his head
quarters In the wars against the bar
ons, and Edward IV. was Imprisoned
there. Other sovereigns have been en

Radcliffe Has Two Girls Who Are Twin
Madeline college this year faces the
unique situation of having not one
athletic champion, but two students
whom a competent committee declares
to be equally entitled to a mark of 100
per cent after exhaustive trials.
Edith Honuett and Gertrude Nichols,
senior and junior respectively, have tri
umphed over all competition, and last
week each was awarded sixty points
for proficiency out of a possible score
of sixty in dltllcult skill and muscle
trying tests. Each was therefore de
clared perfect.
The rivalry that such n division of
first place honors might be expected to
engender Is not apparent, however, and
the only two for many years In the his
tory of Hadcllffe to receive perfect
scores In their tests of athletic ability
.are chums.
The college finds that its star ath
letes are brilliant scholars as well.
Miss Hennctt is president of the Had
cllffe Athletic association. Both are
small in stature, both aro essentially
feminine, and both rely on skill rather
than mere muscle for success In their
athletic work.

Legless Foreigner, Abandoned by a
Ship, Known Only as Gerome.
Death bus finally claimed Gerome,
a legless and silent foreigner of mys
tery, who was found marooned on the
beach at Mink cove, near DIgby, N. S.,
in 1SG3. For nearly a half century he
had steadfustly refused to divulge his
Identity, his nationality or the reason
of his abandonment by a strange ves
sel. Declining to talk, work, read or
even look nt pictures, Gerome spent
his last days a ward of the govern
ment. He died a few days ago at a
farmhouse threo miles west of Meteg-
han, on St. Mary's bay, near the spot
where he was cast ashore.
One afternoon in August, 1803, two
fishermen on a hill overlooking tho bay
saw an unknown schooner tack into
tho harbor. A boat was lowered over
tho vessel's side. The next day a man
was found In a dory on the shelving:
beach. A bottlo of water and a pack
age of sea biscuit wore within his
reach in the boat. The man's logs had
been very recently severed, and tho
wounds were still fresh, the work hav
Ing been done apparently by a skillful
surgeon. When spoken to ho moaned
nlmost unintelligibly "Gerome." Noth
