ter Summer Vacation.
SEXES EVENLY DIVIDED
Sxpected There Will Be 500 Pupils at
High School for New Term
Figures by Buildings.
, The youngsters all over the city
gathered up their long-neglected school
books and wended their way to the
school houses this morning for the first
time since the close of school in the
spring. Of course, many of the chil
dren were glad to get back to their
studies, but there were Just as many
who would have preferred to wait an
other month or so at least before tak
ing up the task of learning lessons, es
pecially as there are still a number of
baseball games to be played. How
ever, the most of them made martyrs
of themselves and went to school and
the enrollment throughout the city in
dicates that school is just as popular
as ever The largest class in the his
tory of the high school was taken in
this morning and the other classes
seem to have shrunk little during the
summer. In the incoming class there
are at least 130 pupils, and it is ex
pected that this number will be aug
mented before the week is out by a
number of late comers.
Sexes Evenly Divided.
The registration in the grade schools
of the city shows a total of 2.677, and
almost an even half of this number is
boys. This total is exclusive of the
high school, which will have an en
rollment of nearly 500, making some
thing over 3,000 public school children
in the city. The registration in the
public schools is as follows:
Hawthorne Boys, 224; girls, 247;
Washington Boys 69; girls, 50; to

Yesterday afternoon Superintendent
Hayden held a general meeting for the
teachers of the city and practically
all of them gathered in the assembly
room at the high school to receive in
structions and to make plans for the
coming year. There was chorus sing-'
ing under the direction of Professor E.
L. Philbrook and devotional exercises
led by Rev. R'. B. Williams, after
which Dr. W. H. Ludewig gave an ex
haustive adcjress to the teachers on
defects of vision and especially upon
errors of refraction. His talk, which
was illustrated by charts, was for the
purpose of acquainting the teachers
with the structure of the eye and with
the laws of light which determine the
action of the eye. -He told them of the
different symptoms of diseases of the
eyes which the teachers might notice
in their pupils and test card3 contain
ing different sized letters were dis
tributed. The teachers have been in
structed to test the eyes of the pu
pils at stated periods and if the tests
show any defects in visions, the child's
parents will be notified and recoramen
dations will be made that the family
physician be consulted.
After the conclusion of the physi
cian's talk, A. J. Burton, new princi
pal at the high school, spoke, as did
Miss Lvdiar E.'Koenemann. who was
formerly-' supervisor of penmanship
here and who is back to take up work
along similar lines after a course of

NEW POLICE STARS
Old Emblems of Authority Are
Laid Away and Officers
Get Later Type.
ARE SMALLER BUT BETTER
Have Balls on Points in Order to Keep
Them Prom Catching in the
Clothing of Wearers.
Did you notice the new stars worn
by the police officers In the parade
yesterday? They were given out
especially for the occasion and were
the first time they were used. They
will be the regulation from now on,
however, and the old ones will be put
away to be used by special officers.
The new badges of office are some
what smaller than the old ones, but
the distinguishing feature is the fact
that each of the pqints of the star is
surmounted by a ball. The sharp
points on the kind that was formerly
used often caught in the clothing of
the wearers and tore large holes. The
new ones will not do this and in ad
dition they are much better looking.
There are 25 of them and they were
made by Charles Fiebig of this city.
Extra Officers l'-d.
Ten extra officers were sworn In
yesterday to aid the regular force
in preserving order during the day
and the night. The extra men were
assigned beats and a reserve of regu
lars was kept at the station to go to
any point where they might be need
ed. Because of the excellent police
arrangements, there were very few
disorders in the city despite the large
number of visitors here and the fact
that many of the rougher element de
cided that Labor day was a day to
be celebrated with a jag.
BUILD ADDITION TO
THE SAFETY BLOCK
Three-Story Wing to Be Erected on
the East End of the Present
Plans have been drisd of a three
story addition to the Safety building
on Third avenue. The addition will
occupy the space between the east end
of the present Safety block and the
Paker laundry building. It is under
stood several parties are negotiatin
for the lease of the first floor of the
new addition. It will be built at once.
THE LIMITED IS DELAYED
Coach on Milwaukee Train linns Off
One of the coaches on the Milwau
kee Southwest Limited was derailed
last night at Forty-third street and the
train was delayed an hour before it
was In shape to continue on Its way.
The accident happened about 10:20.
The railroad tracks are crossed by the
arsenal line street car tracks at the
point where the ' accident took place
and it seems that something got into
the frog which protects the crossing
and caused the derailment.. Fortunate
ly the train was not going fast and
little damage was done. The car was
put back on the track after a time and
the train went on towards the west.
WAS NO RIVER EXCURSION
First Time in Years When Labor Day
Passed Without One.
For the first time in years, Labor
day passed by without a steamboat ex
cursion out of the local harbor. As a
matter of fact, yesterday was the first
summer holiday in years when no ex
cursion has been run by the boats.
Usually there are at leist three excur
sions, and thousands of people attend
them. Although local steamboat men
have not given up all hope of running
further excursions this season, they
agree that it looks as though the
boats will have to be docked for the
winter without further traffic. The
only boat which Is running now is the
steamer Black Hawk. It left yester
day afternoon at 4 o'clock for Burling
ton with a good passenger list.
Alliance Meeting Ends.
. With the. meeting yesterday after
noon at Central park, Moline the 30th
annual convention of the German
American Alliance of Illinois was
brought to a close, after sessions in
Rock Island and Moline. The pro

included addresses by Colonel Joseph
Eiboeckof Des Moines, Hon. H. Owens
of Chicago, and Albert Huber of Rock
Island. ' Turning exhibitions were giv
en by the Turner society classes of
Moline. There was singing by the
Rock Island-Moline Maennerchor. In
the evening there was dancing. Bleuer'3
