Retween seven and eight hundred tud nts crowded the large assembly room yesterday as 'Sunt. Hall gave the opening talk and Introduced the now high school principal, C. L. l'helps. This Is a 1ig increase over the attendance of last semester. .Supt. Hall In addressing the students Plated that when he took hold of the high school seven years ago the stu dents numbered nlMut two hundred, but It had been his pleasure and de light to watch this number steadily Increase until now the high school Is one of the largest In the state. Mr. Phelps In a short address told of his work In the schools of the up per peninsula, and stated he believed he was justified In saying he had found the students In the upper peninsula schools "more natural" than In any other institutions of learning he had visited. This ho credits to the ways the schools are conducted. "There are two ways," said Mr. Rhelps, "and they are: First, personal liberty on the part of the stihlents, and second, refponslbil- '( V; and well known In Washington society, not to be outdone, will attempt to low er this record.

It being consider ably over one mile in depth. 'H ronioin'ucr being bumped ufler I iiiH-ytcppod from the cage, and later felt another bunio. I put out my haud.s an! they came in contact with some thing. I grasped It, and afterwards round it to lie the steel tall rope. The wrench U my anus was something aw tul, .but 1 managed to hold on, nVil after sliding a considerable distance, liming which I tore the skin from my hands, 1 ot niy legs round the rope, and hung thorn for twenty minutes until rescued." It will be remembered that Sunlch fell ISO feet yesterday morning In the Red Jacket shaft, and his miraculous eisc.ipe from death was the all-absorbing talk In lied Jacket last evening. Hundreds can hardly credit the story. 1 1 is true, nevertheless, and iSunlch is alive to tell It. He resides In Yellow Jacket. GOES TO CR00KST0N, MINN. C. C. Sloane, until recently manager of the Calumet Sas works, accompan ied by his family, will leave this even ing for Crookston, Minn., where Mr. Sloane takes charge of a largo gas plant there.

WILLI 40,(100 PEOPLE ' LIVE IN CALUMET BY TAKING OFFICIAL FIGURES FOR COUNTY, POPULATION OF CALUMET MAY BE ES TIMATED. Since the official census figures for Houghton county have been made public by Director of the Census Du rar.d, speculation a:j to the possible population of Calumet and of Red Jacket und Luurluin villages has in creased. It Is not likely that the olll cial llgures for the townships of Houghton county will be announced for ucvcral weeks, but the Houghton county data provides u basis for com parison, from which the township pop ulation may be estimated. When the last state census was tak en, six years ago, there were 28,587 poodle in Calumet township proper and VO.til'o In Houghton county, or Cal umet had .405 per cent of the total population of the county. If Calumet lias grown as rapidly as other parts of the county, and there seenu every .'ca.von to believe It has, the same percentage of Houghton county's 88,098 people, would give Calumet townsblp a population of 35.CS0. Osceola and Tamarack locations, which are really a part of Calumet, although Osceola people receive their mall at a differ ent postoltlce, comprise about-one half of the total population of Osceola townsblp, and the population of these bxalitlci might reasonably bo Includ ed with that of Calumet. The popu lation of Osceola township In 1901, was 7,448 or . 1 0 " G per cent of the total population of the county. This same percentage of the total wpulation of the county at the present time would give Osceola township 9,304 people this year. Ity conrfblihinig the esthinated population of Osceola und Tamarack locations, one half of the Osceola tow nship total, with that of Calumet, it will (lie found that Calumet ha 40,32 (estimated) people. In 1904, there were 7.C53 people In the village of Iaurium, or .1083 per cent of 'the1 total population of the county. If the same ratio exists at present, Laurium has a population of Si.511. The population is Red Jacket was 3, 7S1 or .0535 per cent of the countys population. The 8:ime percentage of the total population of the county, ac cording to the oltlclal figures Just an nounced, would give Red Jacket a pop ulation of 4,713 this year.
