and Bloomer buildings, both schools hav
ing already on the first day more pupils
enrolled than these buildings are designed
to accommodate. The Increase at tha See

No returns had been received at the super
intendents offlee last evenlns- from Woat
Council Bluffs, which had an enrollment of
rorty-one laat year and which this year
Is expected to be allahtlr Increased. Tha
enrollment at the Hill school shows a de
crease. This la due to a misunderstanding
on the part of a number of parents who
were under the iroDreeslon that their rhll-
dren this year would be transferred to the
Pierce Street school. Owing to the repairs
at the Pierce Street building not being com
pleted the school will not be opened until
next Monday. The enrollment last year
was 343 and Superintendent Clifford Is of
the Opinion It Will sllerhtlv exceed that f,-
ure this year. There Is no indication of the
new addition to this building being com
pleted much before January 1.

the morning was occupied in the distribu
tion of textbooks under the free textbook
system, which went Into force yesterday
for the first time at the high school. A

gramsThe Beatrice bloodhounds were
taken home today, as they did not seem to
be able to follow the trail of Carnea for
some reason, and the general opinion la
that Carnea has used something to throw
them off the scent. The dogs are Just
from Kansas, where they ran down a thief
without any trouble, and their trainer is
confident that the dogs are not at fault.
The country, owing to brush and ravines,
prevents tbelr being used .successfully.
Corporal Prltchard aays that Carnea wears '
a No. 7 shoe and that the toes were turned .
up considerably. He says that since!
