Harris' dKislon of the dis I trict court this nvrning charged with contempt, rJic specific allegation be I Ing that on February .', she took irom the custody of the Crittonton Home 'two children, Albert xnd Ruella Nich- olson, and ran away with them, apalnst the order and decision of the court The woman stated rhis morning that she had no attorney and could not In telligently plead to the contempt charge until she could consult a law yer. To give her an opportunity to confer with an attorney, the court con tinued the time for taklnc her plea until Fehruarv 1i Her bond was fix ed a' $200, in default of which she was placed in the custody of the sheriff who placed her in the padded cell of the county jail. When placed in Jail, the woman be moaned and cried frantically disturb ing the quiet of the occupants of the court house She said that she loves the two children better than her own life, but that she had made no attempt to get possession of them since the court turned them over to the Child ren's Aid Society The court advised her, however, that it had cme to the knowledge of the officers that she had persisted in a hunt for the children until she had succeeded in locating them on Xob Hill, In the eastern part I nf the rltv "I don't know where Nob Hill is, Judge," she moaned to the court, "and I have not found the children I have just sent them some oranges and apples but hae not tried to get them You know I can't get $200 bail in Ogden. Judge because I am a strang er. Oh, don't send me back to that old jail again, I can't stand it. " The officers learned a few days ago that Mrs. Curtis had located the child ren and, to avoid another attempt at kldnapplne on her part, concluded to enforce the contempt proceedings in stituted soon after the hearing of the habeas corpus case in which the) mother of the children. Mrs. Sarah j Nicholson, sought to recover them The order was made, howeer that neither Mre. N'icholson nor Mrs. Curtis I should have the children and they were turned over to the care of the Children s Aid society. The woman came to the sheriff's office last even ing and was arrested. This afternoon a complaint was filed against Mrs Curtis charging her with Insanity and Judge Harris appointed Doctors A. S Condon and E R. Dumpke to act as a lunacy board to eTamlne her. Attorney James N Kimball appear ed In court this afternoon and moved to quash the writ of attachment j against the woman for contempt The argument on the motion was In progress at the time of going to press MIIS.

B Hammon et al. against the Phoenix Construe tion company, and also has giving th parties additional time to furnish fur ther Information regarding the ques tion as to whether the defendant com pany actually resides and whether the transaction in controversy was trans-' tory or otherwise. The Phoenix company made a mo tion for change of venue on the statu tory grounds that action of the nature at issue should be commenced in the county where the defendants reside iMuwMun was read into the stat ute books by the legislature in 1913 and is said by some attornevs to be a "Joker " The point raised by the plaintiffs is that it is not known where the actual residence of the defendants Is and, furthermore, while the contract was entered into In Weber county, the breach occurred in the state of Idaho clearly making the transaction transi tory, in which event it would be op tional with the plaintifr as to where the action should be commenced. The suit grew out of a transaction between Mr. Hammon and his son for work to be done on the electric tower line from Idaho points to Salt Lake. They performed a part of the work, but while In Idaho were released from the work, but only part ly paid their services. Mr Ham mon alleges that he had about twenty teams at work on the Job. The question Is looked uoon with ( oniderable interest as it Involves an , interpretation of the law as to where actions 'shall be commenced and j whether the big corporations of the state, foreign or otherwise can force liflcntions to Salt Lake for trial. The Phoenix company, averB Judge Wil lis, who is attorney for the plaintiffs, is a foreign corporation, Its charter baring been Issued by the state of Connecticut and that because it sim ply has an office in Salt Lake City does make it a resident of this state. DEMURRER IS TAKEN UNDER ADVISEMENT The demurrer to the complaint in the case of the Ogden River Reservoir company against the American Con struction company and Ogden City was argued before Judge N J Har rls yesterday afternoon and taken uuder advisement. The demurrer was raised by Ogden I City claiming that the municipality , Bhould not be made a party to the action, as it was instituted to dls solve a lien held by the American ! Construction company on property owned by the reservoir company. On ! the other hand the plaintiff company contends that, Inasmuch as Ogden City is Interested in the South Fork reservoir project, which Is materially affected by the lien, the city is nec i e??arily a party, either plaintiff or defendant, and as it would not join in the action as plaintiff it should be interpleaded as defendant. oo GOMES BACK WITH A BETTER OPINION OF OGDEN J. L. Blosser has returned from an extended trip through Arizona and California, thinking more of Og den than before. He says that in all his travels south and west from Ogden he found no place more pros perous and progressive. In fact. Mr. Blosser says, where he found parties ( who had left Ogden to take up resi dences in other places eager to sell out and come back. It I? the opinion of Mr Blosser that things are considerably over done in Arizona and California and the inflation of values naturally makes it difficult to find investments of a profitable kind. Speculations appear to be running ahead of the natural resources of the country he visited, and everybody seems to be determined to make a big sum out of wildcat operations and watered stocks. oo WEBER COONTf STILL IN THE RACE FOR FISH HATCHERY According to a letter received to day by the Weber club, from R, S. Johnson, commissioner of the United States bureau of fisheries, Weber county is still in the running for the establishment of a government fish hatchery within its borders A re port in a Utah county paper several days ago wa6 to the effect that tbe government had agents in the field buying up property on which to build the hatchery, but the letter received today explodes that statement. Mr Johnson was in Utah several months ago and inspected a number of possible sites for a hatchery. One of these was on the property of Joseph Read, in Huntsvllle. The lack of transportation facilities to the prop erty was one drawback to the estab lishment of the hatchery there, but Bar. Johnson was given assurance that the Ogden Rapid Transit company would extend its line through the Og i den canyon to Huntsvllle this summer The letter from Mr. Johnson fol low6 : "In reply to your telegram of Feb ruary 10, you are advised that the va rious sites recently Inspected in Utah for the establishment of a federal fish culture station are now being con sidered and no decision will be reach ed in the matter for several weeks. No further action on tbe part of your club will be necessary relative to the site at Huntsvllle (Signed), R. S Johnson, Commissioner. -uu SUPT. J. M. MILLS TO GO EAST TO BIG CONVENTION Superintendent John M. Mills of the city schools will leave tomorrow afternoon for Richmond, Virginia, to attend the National Convention of School Superintendents. The conven tion will begin on Tuesday, February 23, and will continue for a week. Superintendent Mills has planned to remain for three weeks on the trip through tbe east, and south, and will return in time for the next regular teachers' meeting, which will be on March 7. Among the questions which will be discussed at the convention, Mr. Mills said this morning, will be those of the "part school sessions," and the shop and trade schools. In addition to attending tbe con vention, Mr. Mills will visit a num ber of cities that are working along progressive lines of education. Among them will be Cincinnati, McComb, Mis sissippi; Topeka, Kansas, and St. .Lou Its. Missouri RECOMMENDATIONS OF SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS After attending to routine business briefly and allowing the regular bills and claims the county board of edu cation today took up most of the time of the session discussing a report from Superintendent W. N. Potter aon The report was flnallv adopted as follows: "Gentlemen: At your request. I here with submit a brief special report of the school conditions in the Webei county school district. "There are 21 school buildings in use at the present time and two build ings rented by the board for school purposes Wc have in the service : force of 74 teachers two of these are assistants and a total attendance of 230(5 pupils (taken from third months report) making an average of 31 6 pu pils to the teacher. We have a strong teaching corps doing very cred Stable school work. "The enrollment in some schools ha6 changed materially since last school year In some districts there Is a decided Increase, while in others the reverse is true For example, Hooper has an average of 45 pupils to the teacher, Huntsville 31 pupiia to the teacher, and Kanesville 21 pupils to the teacher This chang In enrollment of pupils may necessi tate the readjusting of the assign ment of the teaching force for an other year. "The past year, in addition to pay ing for the two new school buildings, West Warren costing $4160 00, and Harrisville costing $12523 00, several large items of repair and improvement have been met which will not be nec essary another year T'ne items re ferred to are Huntsville new heat ing plant and reshingling roof, West Weber new heating plant, and Wilson new heating plant "Another large item of expense was the purchasing of new text books, the amount expended this school year to date being $4482.03 This expendl ture is due to the exchange of text books and the placing of two new sets of readers in the primary schools. 1 estimate from $500 to $S00 will be sufficient for another year "The following schools are badly in need of better school accommodation?. I would recommend the consideration of them in the following order: "Hooper-Kanesvllle, Farr West Marriott. "I would recommend the special consideration of the two room school in the way of providing them with better equipment and materials and making school conditions in general more desirable "I recommend that the basement of the West Weber school be drain ! ed or that the furnace pit be cement ed and made absolutely waterproof, and also that the basement of the i Wilson school be drained, with the j view of opening the basement room for school purposes next year. "I recommend that the following I ' sciioois oe proviueu wnu puiK unnn I Ing water and that all cups, buckets and sanitary drinking cans be aban doned. Pleasant View. Riverdale. Marriott and Warren. All other schools are now provided with good drinking water. "I am in sympathy with the plan of medical inspection of school pu pils, and recommend its adoption a soon as practicable "1 recommend, to take effect at once, that whenever a contagious or infectious disease breaks out among School children in any school district, that a medical Inspection be made of the children In the school affect ed and that all children found in any degree ill be excluded until all dan ger of contagion Is past. I also rec ommend that school buildings be dis infected at frequent Intervals "I recommend that new outbuild ings he built where needed and that a special scavenger be employed to keep them in a sanitary condition. "I recommend that more attention be given to the transportation of pu pils and that where the distance is greater than three miles an extra wagon be put on so as to shorten tho time that pupils are required to be in the wacons "I believe more attention should bo given to ventilation of school build ings. Children complain If they ai too warm or too cold but seldom or never realize that they are being pois oned with foul air in a poorly ventl lated school room The ventilation in several of the school buildings pro vided with hot air heating plants Is not suffient for the needs of the pu pils I recommend that these build ings be inspected and where the ven tilation is found insufficient that the proper changes be made to supply fresh air. I believe that the fresh air supply should be taken from out side the building and that hereafter none but the heating ventilating sys tem should be considered, either stoves or furnaces. "I believe we are not getting all the possible good out of our school build ings I would recommend that the free use of the public school buildings be tendered the public of tbe district for educational and other legitimate purposes and that the organization of adult school clubs be encouraged throughout the county, with the school building as a center of social life where the people of the district may meet to discuss their interests "I would recommend that public edu cational meetings be held in the vari ous districts so that a better working relation might be established be tween the home and the school, the school board and the people of the community Respectfully submitted, (Signed). W. N. Petterson, Superiu tndont." SCOTT'S SOUTH POLE ADVENTURES TOLD IN MOVIES Devotees of animated photography have In store for them a veritable carnival of exciting adventure and pictorial grandeur, of a hitherto un illustrated world the South Polar Continent, as filmed by Mr. Herbert G.

The Scott pictures are the first ever exhibited of that hitherto unknown realm where Jack Frost is king, and it is said that they ar quite the most Interesting yet produced in any coun try. From a scientific standpoint, these picture are unequaled, for the reason they have taught scientists things heretofore unsuspected. For Instance, bow a seal gets through the ice (the seal being a mammal has to come to the surface to breathe) has long puzzled researchers, who weie at a loss to account for the "seal holes " Mr Ponting compiled con crete evidence which for the first time satisfactorily explained the phe nomenon He caught the Waddell seal actually "sawing the ice with its teeth" and when this unique film was exhibited in London It brought forth unqualified praise from the entire sci entific body These animated pictures aro being exploited for the benefit of the wid ows and orphans of the Scott expedl tion oo SOCIETY MISS NELSON SURPRISED.
