It a allowed with othT claims, amounting In all to lofl. 31.55. 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. cusslon. 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. On the appropriation ordinance for the payment of claims was one Item of $109.05 for C. E. Fawcett, the expert employed by the special committee In the matter of the After ttelaa; Released In Omaha He Gets Into Tremble In Lincoln. Thomas Carr, jr., alias Charles Cava naugh, recently released from the county Jail upon the motion of County Attorney Shields, after he had been bound over to the district court on a charge of burglary, Is now In Jail at Lincoln, his home, charged with highway robbery, and has been Identified by his Victim, H.

He gave his age to the police here as 19 years and upon his arrest In Lincoln Sat- rday he gave It as 20 years, and some Ime ago when arrested there gave It as 22. Chief Donahue says Car Is 25 yesrs of age and has a bad record. Friday night In Lincoln Carr and a com panion held up H. C. Simmons and beat him severly over the head with a revolver. Simmons, who has known Carr some years, positively identified him.

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 thereof. Forest Reserves. 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 partment allowed 1.197.000 sheep to enter eight of the reservations for specified periods, the grazing to be confined to cer tain areas and 469,137 head of cattle and horses to graze In thirty-eight of the reservations. ' Concerning reforestation, the report says: Assuming that the reforestation of the denuded ar In the forest reserves, where sufficient molstjre prevails to make the aermlnation of seeds of the native trees possible, might be expected to result In good time, ir tne occurrence or devastating nres could be reduced to a minimum, and the grazing of stock restrained within proper limits are reduced to a sale basis, tne tor est force has been required to make extra exertion to prevent damage by fire, and to keep the office duly Informed relative to the effects of stock graxlng and to keep out siock not ncensea 10 enter me reserves, snd all the evidences point to almost un varying success. The forest trees are coming back, only where there Is a plentiful rainfall, and not a little hope is found In the fact that the native trees are reproduclnug themtelves In the drier portions of the country, where the fires are kept out and where grazing is restrained within reasonable limits, and many a waste place Is becoming a wilder ness of verdure TWO HOLD UP GAMING JOINT Jnnenn Den Is Raided hy Robhers, W ho Terrorise Fifteen Inmates.

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 have been trying for the past fifteen years to discover the exact structure ot a bird's bad killed a large bawk and was examining Its feathers, when a stain was detected on the sides of the quill between the spicules that was not before seen. A smsll magni fier gave It the appearance of dlscoloratlons about the throat uf a dust exhaust In a plan ing mill.1 i - A microscope was at once procured, with an outfit of objectives from 60 to 100 diame ters, and In an hour's time I knew more about bird fllghtH than twenty-five years of study had given me. The discolorationa extended along each spicule between the plates. ' The downy filaments filling the double wall structure of the wings were stained In the same unusual manner. This stain, when scraped off and examined, re sembled soot from a stovepipe, showing that the air had been going through the wing In an. Incessant Btream, carrying the smoke and carbon particles of the fire with it. I had been the slave of preconceived Ideas. And this brings me to the device that soars the bird. What is a feather? It la an air engine and the bird surfaces are made of tbem. Tbey have been looked on aa a light, flexible material for making an extended surface Impevlous to air that would readily fold upon Itself and their exquisite mechanical atructure has been overlooked. They consist of a quill and two vanes made up of spicules, between which are the plates. There are about 1,000 of them to the inch, being practically In numerable, and they are located at the outer surface, filling about one-fifth part of the depth of the channel. They are about the twenty-thousandth part of an Inch thick, as nearly as an amateur with a mlscroscope could determine, so that nlneteen-twen. tletbs of tbo space of the channels Is open to the passage of air. The mechanical service of the plates Is obvious. The curve Impinges against the air currenl through the feathers and drlvea the bird to the front. ers be put on, says the New York Times. "I hate to ask the favor of a stranger." the young man said, "but really It would save me much embarrassment If you ecu d let me have a couple of dollars until to morrow." "Indeed 1 csn't do it," aald the man, for he believed not a word of the tale, and he left the disconsolate youth at the postof flce, and, meeting a friend, Invited him to luncheon and told him of his "gentleman beggar."
