"Adam could not become a million-

to judge the man just because he did
not do well in his attempt to corner

be due to the announcement that Al-

The readings of Mr. Fouch are sim-
ply grand. He is not simply a reader,
but an actor of great dramatic power.
He attempts roles in both tragedy and
comedy, and his versatility covers the
whole range of literature. His reper-

verging characters. He is an earnest
student and assuredly a Shakespeare-
an scholar. He will be at the Chris*

THE SCANDINAVIAN QUARREL.
An acute world question is being
presented in the strife now going on
between Sweden and Norway.
Beginning in .1 dispute over the con-
sular system, the quarrel has grown
in bitterness until a dismemberment
of the Scandinavian union is threat-
Norway claims that Sweden has as-
sumed too much authority in diplo-
matic matters. The former is demand-
ing a stronger representation in the
consular system which the latter re-
ftises to concede.
That is the immediate cause of the
dispute which has led to serious differ-
epces. The final cause is to be found
in the fact that Sweden is drifting into
an aristocratic or bureaucratic govern-
ment, while Norway shows strong ten-
dencies toward democracy.
Should Sweden, embittered by the
extreme to which the Norwegians go
in denouncing the sister country, tell
the latter to go her way alone the
separation would present a grave sit-
uation for Europe.
Russia long has had her covetous
eye on Norwegian territory. If the
Slav is driven back by the Japanese
and balked in bis age-long ambition
for an outlet to the Pacific he will not
long hesitate to make reprisal upon
unprotected Norwegian territory.
The warm water ports of the west
would be open for Russia's reprisal.
