The board confirmed the sppolntment of
Judges and clerks for th Hoard of Education
election as already appointed fcv the clerk
of the dlKtrtct court for the county election.
The resignation 'of Miss Meredith Smith
its director of the kindergarten at the Cen
tral school was accepted.
The. board adjourned to Monday evening
next. when the law requires that a meeting
chall be held for the purpose, of counting
the ballots cant at the election for members
of the school board.
BETTER LAWS ARE NEEDED
YOUNG CARR UNDER ARREST
There being but little business suffi
ciently matured for decisive action, the
Board of Education Indulged Its fondnees
for debate to the full extent last evening
and of the nine members present there was
scarcely one that did not contribute to
that portion of the proec edlnf? which will
not appear In the written record of the
meeting, but which occupied by far a
greater portion of the time. Tin absentees
were President Barnard, and Messrs. An
derson and Stubbendorf.
The special committee to which was re
ferred the controversy over the heating
and ventilating plant at the new high
school, of which the bill of the contractor,
John Row A Co., is the keynote wss not,
as had been hoped and expected, ready to
report. Chairman Wood asked for further
time, saying that the eommU'ee had been
In session all the afternoon flntll 7 o'clock
trying to prepare a report for the meeting,
but had been unablo to do so. It had been
found at the last minute that the mem
bers were not entirely agreed upon a num
ber of different points and he and the other
members felt convinced that a report at
this time would' not be cf a character to
be entirely satisfactory to the board, or
to the rommittee Itself for that matter.
Further time waa granted.
Report of the Kiprrt,
From remarks dropped outside the meet
ing by the members of the committee it is
learned that C. E. Fawcett, the expert me
chanical engineer employed by the commit
tee to make a thorough technical examina
tion, has In his report followed the spec
ifications In detail, taking up each point
at which tho contractor deviated from them
and pointing out the dlfforencea In results
nd the difference in cost. The report, It
Is Intimated, will show that neither the
architect nor the contractor was entirely
blameless In the execution of the work.
Provision waa made by the board for en
largement of the manual training depart
ment at the high school in spite of the
adverse, report- from the committee -on
buildings and property. The committee
recommended that nothing further be done
for the present In the matter of Increasing
the facilities for manual training as had
foeen proposed. Mr. Homan moved the
adoption of a substitute for the report,
providing that two rooms at the north
end of tho old high school building be set
aside and properly equipped for the use
ef the manual training department and that
an assistant be employed In this depart
ment. Mr. Homan explained that the pro
posed Improvement would cost between $700
ana xi.ooo. Mr. Homan's substitute was
adopted, Mf. Levy and W. F. Johnson vot
ing no. By the terms of the resolution
the new rooms are to be ready for uae at
the opening of the next term.
Appoint Truant Officer.
After some discussion at cross-purposes,
"ill Fsrker, until now teacher In the
Gibson school at a salary of $80 per month
was appointed truant officer until July 1
at a salary of $83.33 a month, as recom
mended by the committee on teachers and
examinations. Robert Smith proposed
a substitute the name of Joseph Redmond.
at a salary of $50, and J. J. Smith proposed
Ed Robinson, but neither. of the Smith mo.
tlona received a second. The necessity and
the legality of appointing a truant officer,
however, afforded inspiration for much dla.
That some of the members of the board
are disposed to discipline John Latenser
waa apparent In two reports submitted by
the committee on buildings and property.
One of these provided that the architect
should be notified that the plaster in the
toilet rooms of the new high schol build
lug must be made to couform to the spec!
cations and that If this is not done within
thirty days the expense of having It done
will be taken from the money due the con
tractor. This report was adopted, Mr. Mc
intosh alone voting In the negative. The
other report recommended that the bill of
V. Ruempllng for work at the new high
school be not allowed in Its present form
On this bill It was noted that some of the
Items were ordered by John Latenser, ar
chitect. The report was adopted.
J. J. Smith introduced a resolution pro
vldlng that the principals of twelve-room
schools shall receive $130 a month, the prin
elpals of thlrteen-room schools $135 i
month, of fourteen-room schools $140 i
month, of fifteen-room schools $145 a month
ana or scnools or sixteen or more rooms
$150. Mr. Smith moved a suspension of the
rules for the adoption of this proposed
amendment of the rules, and the old dls
cusslon as to the raising of salaries wss all
revived. After much talk the resolution
was laid over to the next meeting.
Kxperts BUI Allowed.

payment of claims was one Item of $109.05

WASHINGTON. Nov. 3. The annual re
port of Blnger Hermann, commissioner of
the general land office, shows that the pub
lic land disposed of by . the government
during the year aggregated 19,488,535 acres,
an Increase of 3.f25,7.19 acres over the
previous year. Of the aggregate 1,737,791
acres were sold for cash, 17,(114,792 acres
were embraced In miscellaneous entries
and the remainder were Indian lands.
Commissioner Hermann recomends a
large appropriation specifically for surveys.
In Alaska: legislation regarding rail right-of-ways
granted; laws so that parties who
have expended large sums of money for
power plants, etc., shsll be protected
against subsequent settlers, and a large
appropriation to provide for an Increased
number of special agents to prevent tim
ber depredations and to protect public
lands from unlawful entry. The report also
renews previous recommendations for com
pulsory attendance of witnesses In hearings
before district officers, for repeal of exist
ing laws regarding limber on the un
reserved public lands and substitution
therefor as a general law providing ample
protection for the forests and furnUhlng
means by which settlers, miners and others
may secure a sufficient supply of timber
for their legitimate needs; legislation to
protect game and fish In forest reserves;
extension of fne boundaries of Yellow
stone National park; and legislation giving
the president general authority to set
apart as national parks, public land tracts
having scientific or historic interest or con
taining springs of medicinal properties.
It Is urged also that the law as to ex
change of lands embraced In foreat reserves
held by private owners of public lands not
In reservation be changed so as to recurs
an approximation In value of the lands re
linquished with those selected In lieu
On October 1 last there were fifty-four
forest reserves, embracing 60.174,765 acres,
an Increase of almost 14,000,000 acres since
the last report. During the fiscal year
there were 1,663 forest fires discovered,
which burned over 87,799 acres. The con
stantly decreasing area burned over Is said
to demonstrate the efficiency of the govern
ment forestry force.
The commissioner says that the with
drawal and proper policing of the forested
lands of the government during the year
has shown the following results:
1. The work has proved self-supporting.
2. It has In addition brought in a revenue
to the government.
3. Needed, timber supplies have been
placed within lawful reach of the public.
4. Timber depredations within the re
serve limits have practically ceased.
A little over 6.000,000 acres of land were
certified and patented to railways during
the year under the land grants made by
congress to aid In the construction of rail
roads. During the season the Interior de

periods, the grazing to be confined to cer

Phenomenon of Soaring; Explained by
an Inquiring; Naturallat.
Almost everyone has marveled at the
facility with which a bird skims through
the air without the least apparent motion of
the wings. The average observers are ab
solutely baffled when confronted with the
problem. It does not move Its wings when
It has once got well started; Its moving
parts seem to be of use merely to get It
off some unknown dead center; it has infi
nite capacity for taking advantage of bal
ance and all this Is done while violating
every known mechanical law, holding up a
heavy body In the air aad overcoming strong
atmospheric resistance at a rapid rate with
out discoverable expenditure of energy.
Yet weight Is absolutely necessary for
flight, and the relative area of wing ex
panse diminishes aa the weight of the bird
Increases. For example, a gnat, which pos
sesses a very light, fairy-like body, has
about eleven tlmea the wing area of a swal
low In proportion to the weight of each. I
