special meeting of the Board of Educa

urday for the purpose of passing on the

been accumulating since August. These
bills are usually paid in January, but
owing to the change in the fiscal year
ordered by the board at its last meeting
It waa necessary to pay them in Decern- j
ber. No other business was tranaacted.

about forty recruits have been accepted

that the number willreach fifty by the

have presented themselves for enlistment,

consequences Is the strange pltght which
befell E. D. Palmer of Nob Hill a few
days ago In a hunting experience that al
most places his story In the list of the
nature fakers, or an unwritten chapter
from the personal memoirs of Daniel Boone
Mr. Talmer was hunting about thirty
miles from Seattle. In the upper Naches
valley. Deacendlng from a precipitous In
cline down a Jagged canyon, weary and
footsore, exhausted and downcast by
fruitless dsy of toll, the unsuccessful
sportsman waa suddenly arrested In his
course by a furious whirl of wings passing
him with the velocity of a cannon ball.
Turning quickly in the direction of this
welcome sound of whirring wings. Mr,
Palmer beheldi to his wild astonishment,
blue-winged grouse fleeing before the rapid
winging of a monster eagle. Both birds
passed almost within cach of Ms gun
Like a flash came tha report of Mr
Palmer's gun, aa be brought the stock t
his shoulder and fired unerringly at th
The result of this shot was most re
markable. One of the small leaden mis
siles chanced to graze the skull of the
eagle, and as the grouee fell to the earth
dead, ita pursuer simultaneously took a
headlong tumble, falling by the aide of
the gamebird. Mr. Palmer ran down th
hill to bag his game
There before him, apparently dead, lay
one of the biggest American eagles he
had ever seen. Hs stooped to pick up the
grouse, but had just taken it in his hand
to place In hla hunting coat when, all it
once, the eagle began to flap its wings
Immediately Mr. Palmer turned his at
tentlon to the big bird, and seizing it by
the throat and feet carried it down the
canyon to hi team and hack. When th
hack had been reached Mr. Palmer dlsoov
ered that he had a problem .in his hands
to solve that would require aome akill
aud determination. The eagle had come t
Ufa. He didn't dare release the feet of his
victim lest his face and hands would be
lacerated by the aharp claws of the feath
ered animal. Neither did be cherish the
idea of letting go of lis neck and taking
chances with the bird's wings; but some
thing liad to ae doae.
He accordingly climbed into the roar of
the hack, placed one foot oa the eagle'
nerk. snd with ene hand held its two fet.
and wlfh the other reached for the halter

legs, after which he tied the bird to the

time, however. Mr. Fn-lmer had been sub
jected to a severe drubbing by the wings
of the eagle. His hat was knocked off

There will be some Interesting silver
legislation by the present congress, 'If
Secretary of the Navy Metcalf has his
way. ' Mr. Metcalf haa found out that
the various battleablpe, cruisers and gun
boats possess some of the finest silver
services In the world today, and be wants
congress to establish the title to this
property, valued at nearly (250,000.
Blnce the starting of what la popularly
known as "the new navy" each state and
city after which Is named a battleship
or a cruiser haa followed the custom, of
presenting to the ship a service of sil
ver for use on state occasions. i
These gifts are made to the ships, end
the title of ownership goes to the ship,
and not to the government. As a result
of the retiring from active service of a
great tnany vessels, few, if any, of
which will be put In commission again,
the Navy department finds that silver
services worth from 176.006 to 1100.000
remain on board these ships. Mr. Met
calf wants a law enacted that will give
title of these and similar rifts to the
Navy department and not to the ships.
The old slngle-funneled, second-class
battleship Texas has a magnificent silver
ervlce that waa given by the people
of the Lone Star State. In a few days
the Texas will be placed In reserve, and
no naval . officer believes that it will
ever see active service again. It has even
been suggested that the old fighter that
waa commanded by Captain Philip at
.Santiago would make a good target tor
the practice of the new battleships.
In the Hudson river, at the foot tot
Eightieth street. Is the old cruiser New
ark, now the practice ship of the naval
militia of this city. Like the Texas, the
Newark has probably aeen Its last active
service, and as it has a fine assortment
of silver, given to it by the citizens -of
Newark, the government wants the right
to keep that silver In a safe place for
the use of the other Newark that in all
probability will be built at some future
Then there are the Raleigh, commanded
by Admiral Coghlan in the battle of
Manila; the Baltimore, another ot Dewey's
ships, and the old protected cruiser Phil
adelphia, all of which a few years ago
were among the finest vessels In the
active service. The Raleigh is at the
Mare Island navy yard, while at the New
Tork navy yard is the dismantled Balti
more, with the fate of a humble sub
marine mine planter staring It in the
face. The Philadelphia has met it fate
as .the receiving ship at Puget sound.
Waahington.-f All of these ships have
splendid silver henices.
Some of the other ships that will figure
In the proposed transfer to the govern
ment of silverware are the cruisers Cin
cinnati. Detroit, 'Montgomery, Nashville
and Wheeling, all of which have seen
their best days, and in the near future
their number will probably be increased
by the cruisers Ban Francisco, Chicago.
Atlanta. Vlcksburg, and even the big ar
mored cruiser Brooklyn. The Brooklyn
owns one of the finest silver Bervices In
the navy. It haa already reached the
end of the first leg that leads to perma
nent retirement the reserve.
Two years ago no one had an idea
that the Indiana, Massachusetts, and the
Iowa, the latter commanded by Admiral
Evans at Santiago, were nearing the re-
aerve. The Massachusetts Is dismantled at
the New Tork navy yard, while the Iowa
and the Indiana are registered as In re
serve at Philadelphia, and in the opinion
of many naval officers none of these ships
will be returned to active servioe unless
some unexpected emergency arises. These
three ships own silver worth $35,000.
The armored cruiser New York is one
vessel, built many yeara ago, that It Is
believed still has many years of active
service ahead of it. The New York has
been practically built into a new ship at
the Boston navy yard, and will soon go
into commission. The Olympia. Dewey's
famous flagship, ha found a permanent
and honorable retirement aa the flagship
of the training squadron organised last
spring for . the Instruction of the mid
shipmen at Annapolis. 1
In requesting congress to enact suitable
legislation. Secretary Metcalf refers to the
custom ss a "generous and patriotic usage
of long standing." and adds that "In order
to establish the status and ownership of this
property, particularly in view of responsi
bility of loss and handling and the possi
bility of loss by theft or otherwise. Con
gress should pass a law authorizing the
secretary of the navy to accept these gifts

Statistics are not available as to the
number of girls tn Omaha who are Impa
tiently awaiting the dawn of the near year
to hasten to seek the hand Nf the men
they love best- Attain of this sort do
not generally find their way into the pub
lio prints or Into the pages of books of
Trass. Tress i, They're Cesalae;.
Neither are figures available to show the
number of men blushlntrly and coyly and
with fluttering hearts awaiting the coming
of their sweethearts. Still one ran almost
hear the firm tread of the girls as they
swing slong the street about t o'clock In
the evening. Maud, you eee, has her cane
under her arm and Is drswlng on her
gloves. She wears heavy walking ahoes
and a stunning costume. Her hat Is a
gorgeous creation. She Is certainly a
charming creature. How can any man re
fuse Maud? Besides, she has a fine posi
tion as a stenographer and her salary has
been raised to the point where she feels
she can afford a husband.
Maud stops at the drug store and has a
glass of soda to "screw up her courage to
the sticking point," as she tells herself, for
tonight she is going to propose to John.
She called him up by telephone that after
noon and made the date. She's not going
to run any chances of losing out with John
and she knows several other girls that
are daffy over him. For he Is a swtll fel
low. He's handsome and he's a rising
young lawyer, and he has such a charming
wav about him.
But to return to Maud. Having drank
her soda she pays the cashier and saunters
out followed by the admiring eyes of all
the men in the etore. Ah. they sigh, if only
a girl like Maud would care for them.
Soda-Doesn't Stlrst.
A twenty minutes ride on the car brings
Maud to the home of her sweetheart. In
spite of all she has done to keep up her
courage her heart is thumping as she walks
up the steps. A maid opens the door.
"Step into the drawing room, ma'am. John
will be down directly," says the maid.
Maud waits. At last a step is heard on
the statr and then a lovely vision stands
framed in the doorway. It is John. He
wears the conventional black. But no, that
won't do. No, John wears a beautiful ooat
of black with trousers to match. Frotn the
upper left hand pocket of his coat Jeeps
a corner of a white handkerchief. His
cuffs are of striped material, red and white
alternating and These match perfectly the
bosom of his shirt which is visible at his
throat. In the center of his bright blue
necktie glistens a solitary diamond. His
shoes are of black patent leather.
The vision so far described, it will be ob
served, is mostly clothes. But John him
self Is also lovely. His face Is smooth
shaven. His dark hair Is combed from the
left side and a little tuft sticks up at the
back in a most coquettish njanner. His
blue eyes sparkle, rivaling the rays from
the gem in his necktie. His red lips are
alightly parted showing his white, straight
teeth. e
Maud's heart was thumping madly as she
saw him. She arose and stammered alightly
as she advanced to meet him. John, on the
other hand, was perfectly calm. He seemed
to know what waa coming. For Maud had
loved him long.
Takes Clrealtoas Roate.
They talked of many things, the beauties
of Mozart's aonataa, of Beethoven's music,
of philosophical subjects, of Sunday clos
ing, of anything and everything but that
which was nearest to their hearts.
But Msud was a girl of determination.
She had decided to propose and she did It.
It came to John all without warning ex
cept by that line intuition by which a man
knows when a woman loves him. Maud
seized lis hand and at the same time fell
on her knees.
"Johti. I have loved you long. Will you
be my huBband?" she said.
John cast down his eyes. He did not
withdraw his hand, however, and 'Maud
felt encouraged by this. She darod to hope
thut he loved her. For a moment alienee
reigned through the half -darkened room.
Then John said:
"Oh. Maud, this is so sjdden."
He hsd called her by her first name!
"Oh. be mine," cried Maud, again gain.

Then over them flowed that deep, solemn
quiet which comes only when two souls
meet which have bven attuned to harmony
in the eternal workshops of love back In
the dim centuries. When these two souls
find each other they form a music by their
harmony which cannot be surpassed. -Such
an Intangible music now floated through
the room. (How's that?)
Soft pedal!
John needed not to utter a word to show
that he waa Maud a. When ahe took leave

And Maud swung down the street whts

gazing st a ring which spaikled on his
finger. On his face was sn expression of
ineffable joy.
