as Against 166,64-9 Last Year and Interest Fund Shows an
Increase of Over $20,000 School Fund Principal Now Ag
gregates Six Millions of Dollars Practically All of Which Is .

year, which was distributed upon a
per capita basis of $1.85 upon' a
total school population of 166,643.
This sjiows, not only the healthy in
crease of over $20,000 in tho school
fund Interest which is by no means
an Item of small importance, but tho
steady and rapid growth of tho popu
lation of the state is also reflected

lation of 171,742 this year, persons
between tho ages of four and 20
years, as against 166,649 a year ago,
as shown by the annual school re

Denver, Colo., Aug. 1. Fol-
lowing an evening spent at a
moving plcturo -show, at which
were displayed films depicting
the tragic murder of a sleeping
girl, Mrs. Margaret Eveland to-
day shot and killed her husband
while he slept. She then shot
and killed herself. The doublo
tragedy occurred utterly without
warning. Tho couple had been
married for several years, and
had always been markedly hap- '
P". Within the last few months
Mrs. Eveland has been a victim
of nervousness. It Is believed
that the pictures which Mrs. Ev-
eland saw last night may have
inflamed her mind and suggest-
ed the killing.
