C. A. OT " S H e -,'! aS been 3 P° ken °f as the grand old woman of Sweden and she is the only woman ' to whom the Nobel prize for literature has ever been awarded. She is a romanticist in an age of realism and the real is so interwoven with the unreal in her writing that it is diflicult for the reader to know on wbich she places most value. "She has been conversant with the legends and sagas of Sweden from her childhood and thru th-m she won her first recognition when she was 20 years old. Work Is Trilogy. "The Ring of the Lowenskolds" is a trilogy and the three stories it includes are linked by a finger ring and the blood of the Lowenskold -family. The books are "The General's Ring" in which the ring is stolen and the curse begun "Charlotte" in which the ring is returned ·and the .curse continues and "Anna Svard" in which the curse is broken. The book begins with the personal pronoun I which is not forgotten thru the three volumes which are imbued with the spirit of the author. "General Bengt Lowenskold returns from fighting with King Charles XII of Sweden and for his reward is given the estate of Hede- by in the parish of Bre at the opening of the book. At his death in 1741 he commands that the signet ring which he has prized all his life be buried with him. No one dares to thwart him even In death but a few months later when the vault is opened for the burial of a granddaughter and left open all night two peasants, worried lest some thief steal the ring, go to the vault at midnight and open his tomb. When they see the ring they are overcome with, a desire to possess it so they steal it and hurry home. On the way they see -their house burning--the first .indication of the curse which has befallen them. Troubles Follow. "Troubles follow and when the peasant dies he gives the ring to the parish priest. His son. Tngebert see it and takes it from thu priss.t by violence. The priest report's the loss to the general's son who gathers his men to go after Ingebert. They meet three men carrying the body of Ingebert who has been killed in a strange way. They are arrested because the ring cannot be found and after a strange trial are condemned to death. Marit Ivarssen, lover of one of the men and a relative of the other two. vows to avenge their death. When Marit is SO years old she sews the ·ing which she found in the tassel of the cap of Ingebert into the cap of Now Try Nature's Looking down a street, in the famous Central American coffee city Antigua; (tftj/.-y-Nativecoffeemerchant Grown Only In The Rich Volcanic Soil of Central America D OWN along the West Coast of Central America, Nature has performed another miracle. Produced coffees with a rare tang and superlative richness that, experts concede, are utterly unlike any other coffce you have ever tasted. Nature leaves the "rough" offensive oils out of these coffees. You taste only pure, in- vigorating.flavor--never "fiat," or thin, or hitter. We don't want to te!l you how good it is. We want you to try it, as thousands have, and see how it literally spoils your taste for : i ordinary kinds. Introduced by Folger Years ago Central American coffee was first served in the famous Bohemian restaurants of San Francisco where it was brought by'Folger. Travelers tasting it ' there were captivated by its unusual flavor. Flavor produced by a peculiar combination of rich QF.C.C., 1OJ1 volcanic soil, altitude, sun's rays and tropic rainfall--that is found nowhere else in the world. The Folger Test Would you like to see for yourself just how different these cof-' fees are--in richness and in flavor? Here's a test that is as simple aa it is fair. Tomorrow morning 1 drink Folger's. The next morning drink the coffee you have been using. The third morning drink Folger's again. In a morning or two you will decidedly favor one or the other; the best coffee wins. That's fair, isn't it?
