The executive committee of the Na tional Education association announces the selection of Cleveland, Ohio, as- the place of meeting for the forty-sixth annual convention, June 29 to July 3, 1908. - It is worthy of note that ,the next convention will be the fiftieth anniver sary of the first regular convention of the N. E. A., after organization, '.which was held in Cincinnati, Ohio, August 11-13, 1858. But one convention of the association has been held in Ohio sinca that date the one, in Cleveland, August 15-19, 1S70, at which the association was reorganized; its name changed from National Teachers' association to National Educational association; the first departments organized; and its membership extended to include all cit izens Interested In educational affairs. The citizens and teachers of Cleve land are actively supporting the very generous, invitation extended by, their committee of invitation at the Los Angeles convention -and have . already completed a local organization as noted below. The teachers of Ohio are form ing plans to cooperate with Cleveland in making the next convention a mem orable event. Complete details will be announced from time to time, especial ly in the Program-Bulletin to be Issuel about April 1, 1908. It will be gratifying to you to learn that the Los Angeles convention proves to-have been the third largest in point of membership in the history of the association Boston (1903) being first, and Asbury Park and Ocean Grovu (1905), second. The total registration at Los Angeles amounted to 12,818, ex clusive ot approxlr.iflteiy 4,500 active members not preseat at Los Angeles, to be included later, making the ap proximate enrollment for the year 17, 318. The corresponding enrollment at the Los Angeles convention in 1899 was 11,982. - It is worthy of note that the state of California, for which 5,000 members were guaranteed by the Los Angeles local committee, had an enrollment of 6.306. Arizona, which has but 554 teachers, according to the latest report of the United States i commissioner ol education, furnished 5S3 members. Texas sent 45S members, and Utah 380 the highest number from these states at any convention. p The Department of Superintendence will hold Its next annual meeting in Washington, D- C-. February 25, 26, 27, .WPS. '." This department met annually In Washington for many years, the last meeting there being held In February, 18S9. Since that year It has met In various cities in both northern and southern states. There are good rea sons for believing that the next meet ing in Washington will be more largely attended than any former meeting. Arrangements for railway rates have not been fully completed for all sec tions of the country. They are given In part at the close of this circular. More complete details will be given In a bulletin containing the complete pro gram of the department to be issued about February 1, 190S, All Intending to attend the Washing ton meeting are advised to ascertain from their local ticket agents details of the rates and ticket conditions some time In advance of the date for the meeting. It will bo noted that the rs cent rate legislation has disturbed the customary arrangements for conven tidri fates, although It Is believed that the rates as ofTered will not prove h gh er than the former rate of one and one third fare for the round trip od the basis of fares at 3c per mile. All general sessions will be he.:d In the Metropolitan M. E. church, 4Vi anu C streets, N. W. Meeting places tor Round-Tables will be announced in the final program.

"Extra! Extra.! Yumpty-dumpty-aw, found Guilty! What do you know about the trial" It was the' voices of two brazen-lunged news-hawkers. All over the Whitney avenue ,dl8trlct of the city they went Wednesday night, hawking the 10 o'clock final extras of a scare-head New York evening paper. which had taken three hours to come up from the big cjty and arrived here by 9 o'clock in the evening. , , The "Jound Gqlltyl'v part of the information volunteered by the two human megaphones was spoken as clearly as a professor of elocution could ask for. The "Yumpty-dumpty-aw" part sounded just enough like Harry K. Thaw to be tempting. Con clusions were quickly reached: Thaw had bieri found guilty, impossible us so quick a trial seemed. The unex pected had happened, and even the most conservative of the residents of the section found themselves hurrying to their front doors almost uncon sciously before they know i it, and' whistling to one or the other of the young men to please come over and sell them a penny paper at five or ten cents each, so that they could 'read the details of the end of tne trial all for themselves. The young men came as they were bidden, quickly consummated their sales, and hurried on again'. The res idents of th section gave a sigh of relief as they turned indoors again, and offered up a little prayer of thanks that the young men with the brazen tongues had selected their par ticular section of the city, to hawk their wares in. Then they settled down before a cheerful fireplace with a drop light and made themselves comfort able for the reading of the conclusion of one of the most sensational and world-famous trials that America has had In years. But the trouble began. "Guilty? Who is guilty?" they wondered. They hurriedly scanned the head lines of the front pages of their papers. In the center column under the monster word "Extra" the news which the Journal-Courier had had in Its office hours before In reference to the In dictment of the president of the Ham ilton bank was given. It was the steenth time they had been fooled in Just the say way and they carefully slid their paper into their waste-paper baskets as quietly as they could before the rest of the members of the family noticed how they had been sold. Those who had been unable to buy a copy of the papers began to call up the Journal-Courier office on the phone to find out If it was really so. They were informed otherwise. Then there was the usual passage of uncom plimentary remarks about the New York papers again. The eye of the law Is remarkably keen nowadays. A few weik back a man found himself In the -lo;k main-! ly through a cobweb. A depctlvo had been attracted to pay him peculiar f t tention by the fact that, fashbnably attired,' he was 'walking down Ine street with a mass of cobvvobs on the elbow of his frock coat, says a writer In Stray Stories. , The news received later that a rob bery had been effected at a wine rn-j chant's office in the neighborhood sug gested the question whether tiiflre were in the cellars, where the thief might have concealed himself, cob webs of the same description. There were, and the immaculately dressed man will In future probably take a clothes brush with him whn engaged in like pursuits. He will not need one, however, for over two years. "It Is the little thing that catches the criminal," declared M. Mace, this great head of the Paris police. He caught a criminal named Avenet by a scent the offender used. The crime was a terrible one the murder of a lady for her jewels and certain bonds In her possession. The lady was discovered lying upon the floor of her room dead. Sha had been strangled. No one had been se;n go ing In or departing from her rooms. There appeared no clew. A handkerchief a lady's was on the floor beside her. It was it ;..nce assumed that the handkerchief was madam's, and that it had fallen from her hand. But It was scented, snd ! no one had ever known madam to use j that peculiar scent ' Mace came to the conclusion that It i belonged to the murderer, and that !' the assassin was a man of effeminate ! and dandyish habits. Within four i days Mace had found his man. It ' was the scent that led to his head falling Into M. Deibler.'s basket. The mystery, surrounding the death ' of a great Continental banker was cleared by means of a cigar holder , found in the room with the body.. No : one could Identify the holder. No one had ever seen the banker usiirg it. But in the holder was a small piece of unconsumed cigar end. ' Experts pronounced it a cigar of the finest quality one which only a person of wealth could afford to pur chase. ' This evidence appeared to confirm the notion that the cigar hold ed had belonged to the dead plutocrat. He had cigars in the house, too, of the same brand. One of the detectives, however, en gaged in the case was not .satisfied. The cigar holder was peculiarly worn. 1 In two places. - Its1 owner, had 'evid ently been accustomed to bite:it hafd. Two teeth had almost bitten II through. The detective inserted. . the ; holder .in, thd mouth of the dead, man, but his teeth would not fit these hol lows. ......(.-. . i , The holder had evidently belonged to the murderer. . He was discovered at last In the person of the banker's cook, whose teeth corresponded toitlje-c worn places. He had been .accustom3" ed to help himself to his master'i choice cigars., i - 7 ' i .-'.
