SATURDAY, DECEMBER 27, 1913. : SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS CALLED BY DEATH Salt Lake, Dec 27. Andrew Clnr ence Nelson, stale superintendent of public instruction in Utah, first vice president of the National Education association and one of the best known and most beloved educators In the United States, died at 6 o'clock yes terday morning In big home at S40 Park avenue Death has written the final chapter of a quarter of n centur of suffering, borne like a true soldi?r, and during which Superintendent Nel son became a leader of the education al forces in America and established a schnol BTStem in Utah second to none in tho country. Superintendent Nelson met his end with the same quiet strength that has characterized the man and made him loveil by a host of friends Last week he was in St. Oeorge county to attend a teachers institute He was advised not to attempt the trip on account of his P"Or health, but he insisted on con tinning his nctive direction of school afTairs nnd believed 'but possibly the sojourn In the warm southern counties would benefit him. He was accom panied by t: J. Milne, secretary of the luvenile court commission, and Miss Sarah He-Ulster, head of the teachers' training department at the University of Utah. When Superintendent Nelson decid ed to return home for Christmas Mr. Milne tried to dissuade him, urging that the trip was too strenuous for Mr Nelson s physical condition "I haven't many more Chrlstmases," answered the educator with his char a i. 'fistic smile, "and I want one more with my family I'll go home" So the superintendent made his last earthlv Journey. He went to bed .1 soon as he reached here Christmas day he was better and was able to sit in a big easy chair and lend his fa therly presence to the Christmas cele bration in his home Christmas afternoon he expressed a riaalra to hp.lr tOrriP nf his favorite old i melodies. One of his daughters played "Silver Threads Among the Gold," "River shannon." "Believe Me If Ml Tho:--c Ktid.-arin- Y.mni; l 'harms " "Annie Laurie." and other favorites, while his fion? and daughters gathered around and ang lie listened with his benign smile, always most appar ent during his many hours of suffer ing, and chatted with his family until early in the evening Then he retired, in a very weak condition Later he bade hi? Family good-by and then lapsed into unconsciousness from , which he neer recovered. Death came just before daylight Superintendent Nelson was a native ot Utah. He was a son of Mads P Nelson and Margaret Hansen Nelson, who came to Utah in IS:; He was born January 20, 1 sr.4. at Ephraim. Sanpete county, where he passed his boyhood. His earliest desire as a boy was to secure a broad and thorough education With this end in view he worked through the summer months on his father's farm and attended the common schools until he had complet ed the course offered by them. He then went to Provo, where he attend ed the Brigham Young university for a time later resuming his work at tbe University of Utah. .Mr Nelson, in his earlier years, was an accomplished violinist, but it was necessary for him to give up playing 27 years ago. when cancer developed in the left side of his throat at the point of contact with the violin. He underwent nine surgical operations, five of major character. The latest of these was performed by Dr. Bevln, a noted surgeon of Chicago, in that city in 1910. This operation was one of the most extensive in the annals of surgical treatment of cancer and at tracted world-wide attention from spe cialists. This left Mr Nelson's left hand and arm and a large part of the left side of his body virtually helpless, but it chec ked the inroads of the disease and prolonged his life. Mr. Nelson worked without rest un til his final breakdown, which occur red a week ago yesterday. He had 1 just completed his year's Institutional I work at St Oeorge, after conducting ; teachers' institute meetings in each of 1 the 27 counties of the state during the year.

Although the speakers have not all been definitely decided upon, the following already have been se lected Governor William Spry, Dr. J. T. Kingsbury, president of the Univer sity of Utah; Dr. E. G Gowan, presi dent of the State Industrial school at Ogden, and Bishop Heber C.

He lived to see his lofty ambition that the schools of Utah should take first ranh among the great state education- i al systems realized The gathering of the National Education association at Salt Lake Cit the past summer, was a testimony to the fact that lead-1 ing educators recognized the high standard of the Utah educational sys tem "With an acquaintance such as Su perintendent Nelson possessed among the educators of the United States, he was a potent force in removing preju dice against Utah aud its people To hi8 credit he embraced every oppor tunity that was afforded to set his state and his people right before the world It is doubtful If the life of any other Utahn will disclose such a powerful influence as Mr. Nelson ex erted in this particular "While maintaining Hie highest ideals 00 educational standards, Su perintendent Nelson combined in re markable degree a practical, common-1 sense supervision of Utah's school work. "The intimate association which I have enjoyed with Superintendent Nelson during the past five years in tho transaciion of public business has afforded an insight to his fine charac ter, the inspiration of which I regard as a priceless possession.

For many days Pelky and his as tute manager. Tommy Burns, have set to with the gloyes In private and the rail birds who haunted the camp at Millett's have been consumed with curiosity to know what was going on So as not to appear inhospitable to camp visitors. Tommy and Arthur changed their program today They permitted those in quest of a line on Pelky to see all that was to be seen at the headquarters, but they went away by themselves later and had a smashing tryout at some point far removed from camp. Charlie Home, one of Pelky's aides, was the only man permitted to see the friendly bouL and Home declares it was a corker.- Of course, if Pelky and Burns had Indulged in any such carryings on around Millett's the visitors would have broken down doors to got a glimpse of the proceedings, but it set in that the really violent work did rot begin until today. In the prior lessons Arthur was merely coached in technique. Today he was required to use force and that's why Tommy sought out some secluded spot where the turmoil of furious battling would not have an c?:clting effect on those who were not allowed to witness it. It all serves to whet the public ap petite and by the same token it en hances the reputation Tommy Bums has acquired for doing things some what differently Who remembers, by the way. when Tommy was ac cused of donning false whiskers and enveloping himself in a capaciom i ti r for the purpose of invading "Gunner" Moir's training quarters near London, when the gunner was getting ready for his fight with Burns? Tommy said the latest report was a base libel, but it was a good story, anyhow. YOUNG MAN'S SIGHT HAS GONE FOREVER.
