E. A. Shelton ai.d Dr. M O Wright present. The firtt question for discussion was the offer of Contractor R. C. Lowell to build a cement sidewalk along the side of the high school building. Thj matter was discussed at length, every member of the board approving the wea but fearing that money was too scarce. A proposition from the con tractor offering to build the walk for $110 was submitted by Mr. Martin. The proposal was to put down a first class walk. 8 feet wide and the e i ire distance of the school lot. 120 feet, for $110. It also embodied the condition that th ritlzens living on the adjoin ing blocks should put down like walks covering tnree diocks. of good material according to the tll rections of the city engineer. The board accepted the proposition on tUla condition and awarded the contract .vi r. Lowell. Superintendent's Report.

The matter of cost was brought up and he stated that he would furnish the water for 1V6 cenU per gallon. Several members of the board thought that the water was too expensive as it would cost $54 per month to furnish all the buildings. Te matter was fin ally referred to the external committee with power to act. Bills Allowed. The secretary read the following bills which were audited to suit the notion of the board and ordered paid: Water company. $12. GO: Fassett & Kelly. $4.65: W. B. Latta and J. H.

Several had failed to keep up with their i ass. es and had to be erduced to lower grades. He then stated to tne Doara inai four other bills presented were referred back for investigation. . Heat For New Buildings. Architect Kneezell was called upon to report all his correspondence on the matter of heat for the new high school building, which will be erected this summer. This had to be settled before the architect could proceed with his work on the plans and specifications and had to be settled soon.

Mr. Kneezell also cities havinz over 10,000 population. He had been asked by numerous school superintendents to have the board pro - test against the passage of the oi . the hiebest point of the Brooklyn bridge into the murky waters of the East river. Witnesses were produced who testified that -they had seen the jump. Leaping from the bridge was a novelty then, although it had been at tempted previously, but Brodie was the first man who had lived to tell of his alleged jump. Museum attractions were in demand those days, and an enterprising man aeer soon had the "bridge jumper.' who was exhibited throughout the country. This was the beginning of Brodie's financial success, and from that day until his death there was not a minute of his walking hours that he was not thinking of schemes to in crease his money. Fortune gave him her sweetest smiles, and Brodie's heirs ire well supplied with this world's goods His barroom on the Bowery for years was regarded as one or tne sights of the city, and every stranger to the celebrated thoroughfare did not regard his visit as complete until he had inspected the interior of Brodie s. It was the headquarters of the tough element. The walls were papered with photographs of the pugilists of the past and present, as well as the mementos of the famous fistic encounters. Brodie was an interested spectator at all of the big fights that have taken place In the last ten years. ODD ADVENTURES. . Detective Recounts Some Strange Experiences. In my experience as inspector of the detective force I have been consulted frequently, both officially and confiden tially, to save men from temptation to guard them from evil associations. In many of these cases suspicion has fallen upon innocent men. and I have often been able to set matters right. Here is a case in hand. The managing partner of a large firm came to me one day and said that his house had been robbed of many thousand dollars. He believed that a young man. whom we will call Smith, was the thief, and he asked me to take the matter in charge. After a few days of investigation I fixed upon tht man who had committed the crime and sent for the manager. "Well." said he right, didn't you?" No." I returned. You found I was "It wasn't Smith. Brown? You have made e terrible mistake. We havent a man in the Brown. my reputation on Brown." "All right". I added.

The first appearance of Johnnie Rol lins in the southwest was in 1893. when slender and undersized tenderfoot applied at the Nemmore ranch on Dev il's river, west of San Angelo, for work. The boy rode well, but he look ed so slender and delicate that the boss of the ranch was afraid he would not be able to do the work required on a place of the kind. He told the boy this, but noting the disappointed look on bis face asked him if he could cook. The youngster answered cheerily that he could, and so Johnnie was put in charge of the grub wagon on a drive although he said he would rather ride after the cattle. Johnnie did not seem to care to drink and gamble with the men, but by bis kindly manners he had won them all as his friends and they forgave him for bis goody-goody ways. After Johnnie left Nemmere ranch and his cooking he got a job herding goats. For this he was paid $40 a month. So faithful was he that at the end of the year his wages were raised. During this time Johnnie lived alone in a cabin in the wild mountain region about Devil's river. His nearest neigh bor was ten miles away. But Johnnie with his dog and Winchester was not i airam. After a time he came to be known as one of the most faithful and brave of herders in that section. This good reputation reached the ears of a rich stockman in west Texas, who turned over to him several thousand goats to manage, paying the young herder in shares. This was the turning point in Johnnies fortune. He secured a big tract of grazing land across the Rio Grande in Mexico, and bought all the goats he could with the money at his command. The herd prospered and grew and the boy found himself not be lust to those who observ Saturday as the sabbath. The body of the report a accept ed, leaving the matter of flags to be decided later. . . . who la iuuisitwi 111 uis uiaui:er UL iiv- , i tarv advertise for bids at r.nce that he . t. . . ... . j, . t ico. , id arrange his nlans accordingly. !

(Red) Seeley case was called in Judge Walthall's court at 9 o'clock this morning, but at 3 o clock a full jury had not been selected. The special venire of fifty men or- dered summoned yesterday was ex- hausted at 11 o'clock and only three men were chosen. Another special venire was then ordered for 3 o'clock, but the probabilities are that the jury will not be finished today. Seeley came in this morning and is at the county jail awaiting the orders of the court. He seems to feel that he has an easy case and is resting quietly. The prosecution, however, is collect ing witnesses and evidence and seem equally confident of convicting him of murder. Edwards & Edwards and Thurman are defending Seeley while District Attorney Dean is being assist ed by Patterson and Wallace. The case promises to be an extremely in ? teresting one but no evidence will be taken before tomorrow if then. Mrs. Ignacio Amador, a Mexican wo- j less wanderer a tattered tramp or a Bowery lodger.

It was during the earlier half of the century that the nickname, "the Buck- eye State." came gradually to be ap plied to Ohio. The word Ohio is Itself generally translated from the Indian as "the beautiful river.". On the early French maps the stream is designated simply as "La Belle Riviere." The more practical and commonplace Eng lish settlers adopted the Indian name first for the river, and then for the 'state, as a matter of convenience. With a Yankee propensity for nicknames however, they seized upon the preva lence of the buckeye tree to designate their state, and took pride in caMing themselves "buckeye boys. This was a highly appropriate selec wtion. for the genuine Ohio buckeye tree. a variety of the horse chestnut, is found only in the state and the district immediately surrounding It. T ne wood is of soft fibre, but is difficult to burn and it is said in Ohio that five sticks -pf any other kind of timber are re quired to consume one of buckeye. The early settlers found it extremely use ful, however, in building their log houses and barns and fences, " and through their utilization of it for these purposes they came to regard it with pride as the emblem of the state. In 1840 when General William Henry Harrison, the first citizen of the new state to be nominated for the presi dency, was put up as the candidate of the whig party, the buckeye bm-ame JTamiliar in song and speech all over the country. That was known as the "log cabin and hard cider" campaign, from the fact that the whigs took up a their battle cry the slurring remark of one of their opponents, who said that Harrison lived in a log cabin and that hard cider was his favorite bev erage. Instantly log cabins sprang up in almost every township as the center of political rallies, and hard cider flowed in abundance at every whig gathering. In their parades the Ohio ans mounted cabins made of buckeye logs on their ox-waeons. and marched behind them, singing a campaign song which ran: Oh, where, tell me where Was your buckeye cabin made? 'Twas built among the merry boys Who wield the plough and spade. Where the log cabins stand In the bonnie buckeye's shade." Thus the work buckeye became sy nonymous with Ohio, and the two prob ably will be linked together until the last Ohio buckeye shall have disappear ed from its native heath. From "The Story of the States" in the February Pearson s. THE CAREER OF STEVE BRODIE THE BRIDGE JUMPER. Sieve Brodie was a product of the Bowery, born in the neighborhood known as Cherry Hill, about 40 years ago. As soon as he was able to walk he began to sell newspapers and ev.en then it is said, he nisnlayed the ability for making money that devel oped itself in later years. Grown to early manhood Brodie did various things for a living. One morning "New York awoke to its coffee and newspaper and found lu rid accounts describing how a young parently most trustworthy young men In the house. He was frugal, sober. flnd ambitious. His salary was less than twenty dollars a week and he was in love with a girl who required an income of eight or ttn thousand dollars to maintain her in the style she was accustomed to. He had stolen from $100 to $200 worth of goods week and was u&ing the proceeds to furnish a suitable home for her. Af ter I had laid the evidence before the proprietor he declined to prosecute, "I'll pay the money out of my own nocket." he said, "rather than send that hov to prison. I'll give him an other chance." He did so. and I am glad to say the youns mr.n deserved it. Before I became an inspector it was not generally credited by detectives that men could be made to convict themselves through their own volun tary confessions. Nothing is simpler. Yon send for a man. He comes to you promptly. He is guilty, and he fears that you know as much as he does. He expects an accusation. You talk to him about other things about ev erything, in fact, save the one thing that he has in mind. Then in the course of time his guilty thoughts will seek some expression, and his story is yours. Thpre Is one peculiarity about men that I have learned: No man "an re peat a statement of any considerable length without chanarine the laneunge in. some wav. provided he is telling thp tmth !f he is lyirsr. however, he Is lett.-r-prfpct in his part, like an ac tor.

Satur day Evening Post. better. His ranch had improved to such an extent under his management that he sold less than half of it for tract. Finally he no longer herded but hired a lot of herders. Not long ago Johnnie went to Del Rio. There passed him on the streets a man who appeared to be dying of con sumption. With the invalid there was a stylishly dressed woman. Johnnie gave them one swift glance and then hurried to his room at the hotel, to which several large trunks had preceded him. No one knows how the transforma tion came about, but at dinner time a handsome young woman entered the hotel dining room. Her soft hair was waved all over her head and she wore a becoming tan that comes with out door exercise. As the young woman entered the room she glanced toward where the invalid and his wife were seated. There was a commotion be cause the sick man at the moment had fainted. When he was revived he ask ed if the woman who had just come in was not Johnnie Rollins. The at tendants were surprised at the ques tion, and answered that Johnnie was "Johnnie Rollins was the girl I was once engaged to marry," said the sick man. "That was Johnnie Rollins saw enter the dining room. Johnnie was the name she was always known oy. That evening the handsomely dress- ea young woman who had caused th excitement called a few friends to her room and told the story of her life The man who was dying in another part of the hotel was the man. ah a said, who more than seven years aeo had jilted her. I was a poor girl said she. "and his parents objected to me on that ac count. He loved me but did not have strengtn or win enough to defy his parents. One day he went to a neigh boring village in Illinois, and was mar ried to the girl who is now his wife. I knew nothine of it until after the wedding. Then stung to despera- I tion, I made up my mind thai I would never allow the people of my native piace to witness my shame, disap pointment and sorrow. I had a little money and at midnight I managed to sup into a car without being noticed i determined to go far away and find some way to make an honest living. neaiizing tne limited opportunities on en for a young girl with few accom plishments, I decided to see if I could not earn a boy's wages. I came straight to Texas, where I was lucky enough to get a job on a ranch. I was ever on my guard, and I played my part so well that no one ever suspected my sex. Miss Rollins said that her sole ambi tion had been to become rich and re turn to the north and shame the man who had jilted her because she was a poor girl and because a girl with mon ey was willing to accept him. . Many, many times she had been tempted to abandon her lonely life and return to civilization, but she stuck to it until fortune smiled upon her. And her life was lonely. One day she opened the cabin door and found a monster jaguar calmly repos ing on her bed. He had entered through an open window, and he disappeared the same way with at least one bullet under his hide. upon anotner occasion she was aroused by her dogs in time to look into the glaring eyeballs of a panther standing at the door. On a dark night while rain was falling in torrents, her dogs gave the alarm and with rifle in hand she went to the corral, where she found that some wild animal was de vouring the goats. It proved to be a large bear. He was so deeply Interest ed in his feast that he did not move until the girl put her hand on his back mistaking his shaggy form in the dark ness for a pet goat. His growl answer ed by a blaze of Are and a stream of hot lead, which caused him to roll over dead at the foot of the girl. v hen asked about her plans for the future Miss Rollins said: "After I get used'to wearing a dress I mean to take a trip to my old home. I do not believe I would ever be content to live there however, and I mean to continue raising goats." She insists that there is more monev in raising Angora goats than there is in sheep or cattle, but she says they require more care and attention and that the men who have failed hereto fore have only themselves to blame, because their failure was due to negli gence. She expects to enlarge her pasturage near Calientes and it is her intention to visit every section c the country where goats are raised so that she can learn what improvements in breeding and in grading are under way.
