H Ing of double mention, as they were done
H by the students.
H In tho afternoon the beginners and first
H. grade students gave a pleasing little pro-

l tlzed Dickens's "Christmas Carol." The
J students had previously read the book In

H than ordinary ability and received much
H applause from th' lr many friends present.
B Those who took leading parts were James
Perkins. Ethel Coombs, Paul Talmage and
Victor Ball.
Stewart Caught a Eob
The crowning feature of the day was
tho reception given by tin critic te&chera
Wl "A Jack Horner Pie" Is the title of a
unique innovation that characterized the
V function. Tho name of every guest was
written on a small card which was faat
ened In the pte by a string. At a given
signal, made after every one had found
his card, the guests began to pull In their
1 llsh. Sovcral of the "wise ones" atternpt-
1 ed to snag onto Prof. Stewart's hook, but
he managed to pull In his line, which, to
his great surprise, had a diamond-set
watch fob attached to It In a brief
H speech of thanks the professor said that
H the handsome gift was as unexpected as
it was welcome It Is a sign of the high
H esteem In which tho professor's co-labor-
ers hold him

ribiul two years ngo In a quarrel over
some plunder. Is now under arrest at OoJt
land, Cel., on the e'hargo of having killed
n policeman at that place some days ago.
Curtin Is known to tho police of this city
ns a desperate criminal and a safe
cracker of exceptional ability. While he
was strongly BUSpeCted of having boon
Tltherlngton s assailant, yet the officers
were unable to secure enough evidence
.iK.ilnot him to warrant his detention
Curtin Is now In la II In San Francisco

arrest the intruder was shot and killed.
Curtin is believed to i the man who did
the shooting. It Is not known whether he
was committing the burglary himself or
"stalling" for his pal when tho police
man appeared on the scene. Several per
sons witnesseel the shooting but no one
seems to have seen tho man with the pun

The same night that Tltherlngton was
shot, the aafe al the Sierra Nevada Lum

ble p.iners stolen An Investigation on
vlnced the officers that Tltherlngton had

MORE PRESENTS THAN EVER
Twenty Per Cent Increase in Holiday
Postal Business.
ThG mail carrier's trouble started sev
eral days ago and will hardly be ende.l
before the first of the year. As early
ap Tuesday packages began arriving from
every Stntc In the Union, and. In fact,
from nearly every country on tho globe.
As It usually happens at this season of
the year that trains are delayed on ac
count of heavy snowstorms mun who
make a practice of sending things by mall
01 express start their packages several
days earlier than they usually would In
order to have them on hnnd'by Christ
mas mornlnr; without fall.
Both the outgoing and incoming mails
nt Salt Iike have Increased In propor
tions from year to year, according to a
statement mde by the postmaster last
evening, and so far this Mason tho
quantity has ini reaadd fully BO per cent
over that e.f 1908. This condition of nf-
fairs has made it necessary to put on
three additional men at the main office
and, by working overtime, the employees
have been enabled Jo keep up with" the
work. Very J w delays of meire than an
hetir or two, have oceurreel In the ar
rival of mall trains from tho Ea.st or
"West, ami unless something out of the
ordinary should happen, those who are
expecting iirlstmas packages from a
distance will receive them today In
speaking of the conditions In general.
Prstmaster Thomas stated that a VI rv
noticeable Increase wn.s apparent In the
amount of money orders and registered
letters sent from and received at Salt
Lake.

Of the New Year, no action In this di

Leg-ol Authorities Differ.
Opinions differ greatly as to tho
chances for recovering this property to

tend that the fact e,f the deeds having
been made so bng ago, even though they
were recorded only when the hank was
about to fall, precludes making g 1 the
charge of attempted fraud while others
are as firm In tho conviction that the
fact that Schettler was really permitted
to remain In business for a long time e.n

Condensed Milk Man Tnlks of the Fu
ture of Salt Lake.
J. B Rackllff. manager of the Utah Con
densed Milk company of Richmond, who
Is stopping m the Kenyoii l"r .i few da s,
said last evening:
"I see no reason why this oily should
not become one of the greatest cities of
tho United States. I expect to see the
Goulds Interested In unothcr line of rail
road to the Pacific coast, and that, too,
within the next two years, ns they are al
reauy practically In control of tho D. & R.
G. In fact, I would not be surprised If
such a line was started within the next
six months There would then seem to
be no good reason why a large amount of
Eastern capital should not be forthcom
ing to be Invested In Utah property and
Utah enterprises Such being the case,
halt lake City would come In for a large
share of the benefits that such a move
would make possible, and, to tell you th'
truth. I Can see no reason why the popu
lation should not be nearly doubled within
the next few years "
The T'tah Condens.il Milk company, of
which Mr Raekllff Is manager, wis start
ed a year ago. and while but un Infant In
one respect, has proven to be a complete
success In every way Nearly 2.000.000 cans
of condensed milk and evaporated cream
were made and sold dining the vcar and
the output next year will probably ho
more than doubled. At the present "time
the farmers of the Cache valley are fur
nishing the concern with 2.".,in pounds of
milk a day. The products of the Rich
mond factory are shipped nil over the
world, a recent order being received from
Japan, and a large amount has gone to
other foreign countries.

convict and try and secure a promise
from him that he would "go anil sin no
more." She has been a constant caller at
tho Utah State Penitentiary for the last
live years, and there Is hardly a prisoner
there with whom she ha not conersed.
They look upon her a their friend and a
number of men who have had their sen
tences shorteneel or wcro allowed their
freedom on parole because Mrs Holding
becamo Interested In their behalf, are now
legdlng useful lives in various parts of the
United Stab s.
inly last Monday a young man was re
leased after serving nearly Bvt years for
burglary. He was a good man at heart,
but got In with associates who influenced
him to do wrong and after tho llrst step
ho went from bad to worse Ho had
talked with Mrs. Holding a number of
times and when the door9 of the prison
opened to him and he again faced tho
world, practically friendless ami alone. It
was little wonder he took the tlrst car for
the deiwn town district and sought tho
street and number which had been fur
nished him. Ho WSS welcomed to tho
home, and why not? Ho was Invited to
remain and take supper with Mrs. Hold
ing and her husband. They talked to him
of the future, "ol his future," and he
promised to go to work and bf-como B
useful citizen. He went away with a light
heart and with tho fact thoroughly Im
pressed upon his mind that there wcro
people In the world who would even be
willing to give an ex-convlct a chance.
Letters From Ex-Convicts.
"Tou should roael some of the letters
from men who have left the prison to be
come useful citizens." said Mrs Holding
"They never forget to write at Christmas
tlmo and I think more of those Utters
than any presents I receive. Some of
them are .from men for who I helped to
secure pardons, others are simply from
kind-hearted fellows who have come hero
to spt n.l ru- i i-nlng the same as this man
did lost. Monday, upon securing their re
lease, but nil of them are grateful and I
would not bo the leant afraid to trust all

Knew the Younger Boys.
"Before living In Salt Lake I lived In
Minnesota," continued tho lady, "and I
have often talked with tho Younger boye
at tho Stillwater prison. They are all
dead now but one, and ho Is not allowed
to leave tho state. Those men were far
from being degenerates. I can tell you.
and they should have been prominent and
us, ful citizens instead of bank robbers
and murderers I mean by this that they
v re not bad at heart. They never mo
ll ited children or women In any of their
raids, and had It not been for their early
associates, they would probably have been
counted among th' b'st men of Missouri.
They were naturally Intelligent and all of
thi members of that gang were the finest
specimens of physical manhood that I
ever saw.
"I was clerking In a store In St. Paul
two days before the celebrated bank rob
bery and the threo Younger boys and
Charley Pitts came In. They wore linen
dust. rs over splendid broadcloth suits,
and as they made their purchases of small
articles I "noticed each man WOS armed
with tWO large revolvers and cartridge
belts which wore well filled. They did not
seem to caro whether anyone saw their
weapons or not while they were off from
the streets, but they acte-d like perfsi t
gentlemen, and a liner looking yuartetto
of men I never saw.
"I have teen fooled a few times In my
efforts to read these men." contlnu.-d the
woman, who believes in doing good In a
practical way. "I have been fooled a few
1 nn. s, but only a few, As a general thing
I can tell n man with a good heart the
minute 1 look him straight In the eye
and talk to him for a few minutes. I
must admit that I have seen men and
women who were beyond recall; who
were so degraded that nothing 6eomed to
touch a responsive cord In their hearts,
but they ,ini In the minority when judg
ing all criminals "
Why She Is Interested.
'iVhen asked why she had taken up this
klol of work, the following reply was
made :
"Because I believe tho ordinary' crimi
nal Is capable of better things; because
I know from my own experience with
prisoners that they are not near as black
as they are painted; because not one per
son In ten thousand eer thinks of trying
to assist an ez-oonvlct to obtain a new
lease ot life, so to spcuk. but on tho con
trary avoids him. points his linger at him,
and refuseu to ackne.wiodgo him at any
time as an ec.ual or as an honest man.

for doing this kind of work. It has cost
my husband and me considerable money to
do It, some or our former friends havo cut
us off from their visiting lists becauso we

and. taken altogether, It has been a thank
less undertaking, with the exception that
In our hearts we know we havo arcom
