 SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY  _,  1902  DAILY EDITION  ANOTHER HOBROR  STEAMER WALLA WALLA  GOES  DOWN.  COLLIDED WITH A FRENCH VESSEL AND SANK IN A FEW  A MINUTES.  EUREKA, California, .January 3.���The  Pacific Steamship Company's steamship  Walla Walla, captain Charles Hall,  which left San Francisco on January  '1st, bound for Puget Sound ports, collided with an unknown sailing vessel  yesterday morning and sank fifteen  minutes after. The collision occurred  about 4 a. in., when all of the passengers were asleep, and it is feared that  many lives have been lost. News of the  disaster was brought to Trindad, about  30 miles north of this place, by a boat  from the unfortunate steamer. When  it left the scene of the disaster it contained thirteen persons, but when it arrived at Trinidad contained seven persons. Later tlie steamer Despatch arrived with sixty-one of the.passengers  and crew on board, including captain  Hall. Some of the people on the steamer  escaped in small boats and on rafts.  They were unable to land owing" to the  character of the coast and drifted about  ail day, when they were picked up by  the steamer Despatch. One boat with  seven people in it arrived at Trinidad  twenty miles north of hero. As soon  as the crash occurred, boats and life  rafts were launched and underneath tlie  direction of captain Hall and his crew  most of the passeng-��*s were placed  safely on the rafts and life boats, but  it is believed that the loss of life will  be considerable. Tugs have been sent  from here to the scene of the wreck. The  Walla Walla carried 36 first-class passengers. 2S second-class, and a crew of  60 men.  The following passengers were booked  for Victoria:    Mrs. captain L. Johnson,  E. F. Adams, L. Hansleman, Mrs. Hastings, W. Dubler, and 11. Nevins. .  For Vancouver: J. H. Brown and  wife, Mrs. R. S. Edgar, and W. B.  Moore. "  For Aslaka: D. R. West and A. Mc-  Clellan.  For Seattle: J. U -isld, J. H. Gray,  A. H. Snell, Mrs. Timmons, A. J. Botz-  scliner and wife, Mrs. 'A, Meydenhauer,  J.

Allen and wife.  _Jt Js_j_eppjite^^  gers were drowned. The collision occurred 22 miles south of Mendecino  buoy. The Walla Walla was struck in  the bow by the unknown French bark*.  At. the time of the collision the second  ollicer was on the bridge and all on  board were sleeping.  Georgo Reise of San Francisco, a passenger, gave the following account: It  was 4:10 a. m. when the French vessel  hit the Walla Walla in the bow. All  were asleep. The weather was clear.  The sea was rolling high. Tho passengers all rushed out of their state rooms  and the deck was crowded. Captain Hall  went down into the steerage and found  a family of seven fastened into a room  by the force of the shock, jamming the  door. Two girls of 12 and 14 years were  pinioned beneath fallen timbers. The  girls were released and the family assisted out of their berths. The captain  said tho vessel would sink and all hurriedly prepared to leave. Life boats and  rafts were lowered; life preservers were  put on, and the passengers lowered to  the boats.  The collision happened at 4:10 and the  vessel did not sink until 4:45 giving the  crew and passengers 35 minutes to leave  the steamer. Sixty-three were lowered,  the life boat and the saving boats then  being filled. Panic reigned among the  remaining passengers, and women  screamed and boys hurriedly jumped  overboard. Several did not leave until  the vessel began to sink. The officers  were cool and collected, doing everything possible to save the passengers.  No one knows exactly how and why the  collision occurred excepting the second  officer and h.c is missing. Immediately  after the collision the French vessel  withdrew and apparently made no effort  to render assistance.  EUREKA, January JK���The tug Ranger has arrived with a boat containing  11 passengers and three of the crew of  the Waila Walla.  SAN FRANCISCO, January 3.���At 6  o'clock tonight the representative of the  Pacific Steamship Company said that  the latest advices from the company's  agent in Eureka accounted for 115 persons who were on the Walla Walla.  This leaves 27 missing. There are still  one boat and two life rafts missing, and  some hopes are entertained that possibly the majority of those unaccounted  for may have been on the sea and picked up at sea.  EUREKA, January -.���Captain Hall.  master of the wrecked  steamer  Walla  Walla, gives a graphic account of the  disaster.   He says:   "We left San Francisco  on   Wednesday   being bound   for  Victoria and Puget Sound points.   The  weather thickened as the night advanced, and Thursday morning a heavy fog  accompanied by a light rain set in about  4:10 a. ni.    1  was suddenly awakened  by an awful crash on the port side well  forward.    Second officer Luke was on  watch   at the  time.   The   housing, especially in the vicinity of my cabin, was  shatterad, the main force of the collision striking  her just  forward   of   my  stateroom.    My   bunk   was   struck  and  thrown across the room   on   my table.  After tho crash   the   vessel,   which    I  think was a French bark, judging from  tho language used   by her   sailors, rebounded and grouped alongside. I called  to her to stand by.   She drifted by and  was lost to view.   I could not tell how  badly   she was   injured,   but I   do not  imagine she was severely hurt as she  struck us bow on, and though her forward  rigging must have been  broken,  it is not likely her hull suffered materially. Those of the passengers who had  not been awakened by the crash were  aroused at once.    The vessel began to  fill immediately and she sank in 35 minutes.   There was no confusion on board.  The officers and cnew kept the passengers from becoming panic stricken. The  crew was immediately ordered to man  the life-boats and  rafts and an effort  was made to save the baggage.    This  was given up, however, the vessel filling at such an alarming rate that no  thought was given but for the safety of  the passengers.    I gave orders to have  the port boilers blown out, it being necessary to give the vessel a list to keep  the gaping hole in her side out of the  water.    In* a few minutes all the lifeboats and rafts were out with the exception  of two   which   were   smashed.  One  of these boats contained  nine or  ten passengers.    All were thrown into  the water but they managed to board a  life-raft which had been launched a few  minutes  previously.    The second  boat  was smashed by striking  a heavy  object in the water, but all the passengers  were rescued by another life-raft.   We  had C5 first and second-class passengers  on board, and 1G0 souls. all told.    We  had no knowledge of the vessel which  struck us, the weather being so thick  she was not seen until we   had   been  struck.    It was wry dark at the time  and the uncertain light interfered to a  great extent with the rescue of the passengers.   I remained on board assisting  thiem.   I went down with the ship. After  1 had been down, I don't know how long,  the social   hall   deck   broke  off  and I  floated to the surface with it.   .Sighting  ���a life-raft I commenced swimming, and  succeeded in rieaching it after a hard  struggle and was pulled on. board  by  three occupants.   We floated about all  day   and   early   in   the   evening   were  picked  up,  two miles to  the north of  the wreck   by   the. steamer   Despatch,  which v/as proceeding to Seattle. From  the information I have concerning the  rescue of the passengers and crew I am  not able to state how large the death  list will be, but in my opinion it will  not be less than 20, and possibly may  reach 40 or more.   A number were in-  iured by the falling timbers.    It is almost certain a number of the steerage  passengers perished in this manner. The  housing of the forward part was split  into matchwood.   While not very rough,  the sea was nasty and choppy, and the  continual wash   over   the   rafts   was a  hardship especially to the ladies, many  of whom were nearly in the last stages  of exhaustion when  picked up  by the  Despatch."  ^^PORTI-ANDr^January^Sr���-Shipping-  men here believe that the vessel which  was in collision with the steamer Walla  Walla is the four-masted French bark  Europe. The Europe left here on December 11th for Queenstown with a  cargo of wheat. Under ordinary  weather conditions, the Europe would  have been further on her journey, but  for several weeks the weather has been  rough, and it is very probable, shipping  men say, that the Europe was the vessel in collision. She carried a crew of  30 men.  At 10 o'clock tonight it is impossible,  owing to the confusing lists of survivors  received from Eureka, to determine the  names of the lost and missing in the  wreck of the steamer Walla Walla. According to the complications of the Pacific Coast Steamship Company, all but  27 have been accounted for. The known  dead are seven, as follows: John Wilson, quartermaster; William Barton,  fireman: L. Brule, a passenger, and four  others whose names have not been  learned. The remainder are supposed  to be adrift at sea in three boats and  two rafts. Fourth officer Brown, third  oflicer Holdren, and a boatswain are in  charge of the boats. First officer Nelson and second officer Luke are each in  charge of a. raft. News of their being  picked up by passing vessels is expected  at any time.  [Captain: Hall of the Walla Walla is  a brother of the late Winslow Hall and  of Osner Hall, the original owners of  the Silver King mine. He is classed as  one of the best masters on tho Pacific  coast.���Editor Tribune.]  Government Taking Action  CHiCAGO, January 3.���At its meting here  on next Wednesday tho Inter-State Commerce Commission will move against the  Northern Securities Company and investigate the combine of the Northern Pacific,  Great Northern, and Burlington railroads.  The commission will probe the entire matter of "community ot interests" between  the great railway systems, but the specific  investigation will be aimed at the northwestern railways. Hundreds of witnesses,  among them many of tho leading railway  promoters and owners of the country, have  been summoned to appear in Chicago next  Wednesday to testify before the commission. All the western railway magnates  have been summoned to appear, and after  the investigation in Chicago, which may  last weeks, has been concluded, the commission will resume its hearings in New  York, and call before it the great promoters and (inanclers of Wall Street. It is understood that there is to be a general and  SILVER KING IS SHIPPING $20 ORE  Monthly Output of &60,000 is Predicted.  During the month of December there were shipped friom the Silver King mine to the  Nelson smelter 1301 tons of ore, the average assay of which was 16 ounces silver and 4.6  per cent copper, the aggregate value of ihe^month's shipments being $26,566. In speaking of the record for -the month, captain G^brd remarked that it should not be taken as  an index to the possibilities of the Silver King as a shipper. Under normal conditions,  with the present development attained in the property, its output should reach at least  3000 tons per month, but the loss of the company's boarding and bunkhouse forced him  early in the month to drop close upon 100 then off the pay roll, and it was not until the  last two weeks of the month that the force could be sufficiently increased to resume shipments. There are now close upon 85 men fiemployed at the mine, but as the majority of  them are housed in temporary quarters, i^will riot be possible to make any material increases in the staff until a permanent structure can be erected in the spring to replace the  building destroyed. In speaking of the values of the ore shipped during the past month  captain Gifford said they could be taken as the value of the run of the mine in the levels  from which it was extracted. This means that when normal conditions are restored and  the mine is sending down 3000 tons per month its output per month will aggregate in  value $60,000. The early resumption of shipments from the mine will be of great assistance to the Hall Mining & Smelting Company in the operation of its smelting department, in that it will be able to reep the benefit of its full smelting capacity much earlier  than was anticipated when the copper furnace was blown out a few weeks ago owing to  the lack of Silver King ore. :^  determined fight all along the line. The  commission has announced its intention of  examining every phase of railroad combination, including the purchase of the  Southern Faeillc by the Union Pacific, the  Union Pacific's control over the Burlington,  and every specific Instance of what-they;  regard as. a violation of the Inter-State  Commerce Act.       ... ...

It says the inhabitants of  Schleswig (Prussian province of Schles-  wig-IIolstein, are Danes by origin, language, education, and sympathy, while the  people inhabiting the Danish West Indies  are mostly negroes, not even speaking  Danish, and adds that such a comparison  is injurious to the Schleswig cause. The  editorial, however, accepts the Monroe doctrine being applied to the Danish West  Indies, and does not favor the proposal to  transfer the Islands to Germany ln exchange for Schleswig. The ministry is  united in favor of the sale. Thelandsthing  or upper house is controlled by the opposition, but it will undoubtedly consent to  the sale of the islands. The rlgsdag, or  Danish parliament, reassembles January  10th.  Protocol's Main Features.  ^VASHINGT-QN.-January_3.���Some^of_the_  main features of the protocol between the  United States and Nicaragua referred to  in president Zelay&'s message to his congress have been made known in recent  press dispatches from Managua. But there  are many other important features which  have not been disclosed, one of these being the complete American jurisdiction and  the establishment of American courts,  civil and criminal, throughout a zone six  miles wide and extending from ocean to  ocean, and including tho proposed termini,  Grevtown on the Atlantic and Brito on the  Pacific."

NANTES, France, January 3.���Le Petit  Phare published a leading article today entitled the "White Slav- Trade," in which  the paper follows up the charge of crimping methods employed at Portland, Oregon,  contained in a letter signed by eight  French captains, and dated Portland, November 23rd, and published by that paper  December 28th, in which the writers ask  the French consul-general at San Francisco to intervene and demand a government inquiry into the subject.

Le  Petit Phare urges that French diplomatic  action be taken in this matter, and says:  "This scandal must cease. It extends even  to San Francisco.

The reve-  nuo derived from the sale of stock, hay,  or roots Is not included in the estimate,  as there are no quantities given, but these,  of course, materially increase the assets  of the Manitoba farmer und give him a  large additional revenue.

SOME BASE-BALL SECRETS  Captain Anson Tells Them.  Captain Adrian C. Anson, the "grand old  man of the diamond," who was twenty  years the right bower of A. G. Spalding,  as captain of the Chicago national league  base ball club, is spending the holidays  with his married daughter in Germantown,  Pennsylvania, He yesterday made some interesting statements in answer to A. G.  Spalding with reference to the ownership  and inside workings of the Chicago" and  New York clubs. These are important at  this stage of the game being played in the  courts by the two rival factions of the  National League. Captain Anson's statement follows:  "Duriii��r the recent base ball controversy  in New York, A. G. Spalding took occasion  to bring me into a discussion with which  I was in no wise connected. He saw fit to  publicly say that the 130 shares of stock  which I now hold in the Chicago base ball  club, were given to me. This statement is  not true.  "The club was originally organized with  a capital of $20,000, of which I owned 10 .  par cent, paid for in cash. Later, the cap-  tialization of the club was increased to  1000(Shares of $100 each, and I was allotted  my pro rata share.,  "Tho additional thirty shares were paid  for by me by the amounts earned, but not  drawn from the club treasury. My compensation was based on a stipulated salary  and 10 per cent of the net earnings of the  club. Neither of.^these, .was in any. way  connected 'with the dividends I was entitled  to as a stockholder in the Chicago base  ball club.  "During the presidency of Mr. Hulburt  and Spaulding the club paid very handsomely, and dividends were regularly paid,  ranging from 20 to 80 per cent. Since. 1891  no dividend whatever has been declared  upon the stock of the. Chicago base ball  club. ,  ,  "During the brotherhood fight the club  ran considerably behind and accumulated  an indebtedness which required several of  the following years to pay off. Since then  the books of the company show that the  club has done a fairly profitable business  and has made from $t0,000 to $30,000 each  year, which has been permitted to accumulate in the club treasury. This amount is  now carried in the club treasury, with  prospects of its being frittered away in  some such fight as is now brewing.  "Tho Chicago club is owned and controlled by A. G. Spalding and John R.  Walsh. The latter is Mr. Spalding's banker.  Tho stock of the club consists of 1000  shares, owned as follows: A. G. Spalding,  320 shares; John R. Walsh 320 shares: A.  C. Anson, 130 shares; W. E. Brown and  J. W.  Spalding 130 shares.  "J. W. Spalding is A. G. Spalding s brother, and Mr.  Brown his brother-in-law.  or  tho   remaining   100   shares   Mr.   James   A.  Hart, since I seyerejl jny^connection witn  "thecfubrhalTa-quired 83, the remaining li  *��� amafso^stockhelder In the New York-  club to tho extent of $5000. This stock was  acquired at the time of John B. Days financial troubles some years since, and was  paid for in cash at par. Mr. Spa ding at  that time made personal representation to  me that the National League was in a  fair way to go to pieces, and asked me  if I were willing to put In something to  savo it.

The balance Of the ore was treated at the smelters at Nelson and Trail. Estimating  the value of the ore at $6 a ton, the out- <  put is worth $2,280,000. The expenses  of freight and treatment can be placed  at $3.75 per ton, and as every ton mined  was treated in British Columbia, $1,425,-  000 were paid out for wages at.smelters,  for coal and coke mined and made in  British Columbia,,- and for freight 'to  railway-' operated in British Columbia.

The telephone company  may be justified .in raising its rates, and  seeing that it has the field to itself, it  is not likely those who patronize it will  be able to do more than enter written  or verbal protests. The company is  owned in the Old Country, and the  shareholders must have dividends.  Either of the following named would  be.satisfactory to a majority of the people of Nelson as aldermen: William  Irvine, Thomas Madden, Ricnard W.  Drew, William P. Tierney, Daniel C. McMorris, John J. Malone, Robert Robinson, William C. McLean, John H. Matheson, John A. Irving, or Chris Morrison.  All are good business men and are able  to pay one hundred cents'on-the dollar.  Men who can manage their own business  affairs successfully are likely to be able  to manage with, equal success the business affairs of the city. None of these  men belong to a class or to cliques.

They believe  the city's affairs have not been carefully  managed during the year 1901, and they  are unwilling that present methods  shall be continued for another year. Mr.  Kirkpatriek has no axes to grind. If  elected, he will have made no promises  to put this man in offlce or that man  out of office. He will take the work up  as he finds it, and if men now in the  city's employ are found to be incompe-  ������tent, or shirking their duties, as a good  business man, it will be his duty to recommend changes to be made.

The people of Slocan City have tried  managing their own affairs for six  months, and according to a statement  made by the city clerk, tho actual receipts were $1934.82, and the actual disbursements $2147.19, which loaves a deficit of $212.37. Of the amount disbursed, $527.S0 wont towards building sidewalks and $74.(15 for maintenance of the  iiro department. This makes a total of  $002.45 disbursed for the public good,  from which should be deducted tbe deficit of $212.37. By doing so a balance  of $390.08 is left, which is the real  amount the people of Slocan City have  spout for the common good, the remaining $1544.74 have been spent to  keep the machinery of government in  motion.  Competition in telepnones has had the  usual result. Rival companies fought  for awhile then consolidated, and the.  losses incurred during the time the fight  was going on are to _�� made good by  raising the rates. Had the rates not  been lowered through competition, users  of telephones would not now be up in  arms against the telephone company for  increasing its rates. The first telephone  system in Kootenay was established in  3891, and the monthly rates then  charged were $3 for residences and $5  for business houses, as compared with  the present rates of $3 for residences  and $4 for business houses. Tho first  line built extended from Nelson to Ainsworth, and no tolls were collected from  those who paid monthly rates for telephones. The line was afterwards extended to Kaslo, and the same principle  was adopted. It is true, the pioneer line  did not pay; but how many pioneer en-  Laid Out by Landscape Gardener.  The dream of a model town has been  so often shattered that the very term  "model town" has come to be regarded  as a synonym for "model failure."  But not all of these altruistic schemes  for bringing men together in one ideal  community have proved impracticable.  Right in Pennsylvania .'-tate, only thirty-  eight miles east of Pittsburg, we have  that almost unprecenderited phenomenon���a model town that is a complete  success.  It is named Vandergrift, and is situated on the main line of the Western  Pennsylvania railroad. Its cleanliness,  beautiful plan and atmosphere of pros-  .perity^and-coiibentment.place-it^n-sharp-  contrast with its sister towns of the  steel district.  Vandergrift is five years old. Five  years ago the American Sheet Steel Company found that its business at Apollo  had outgrown the capacity of the works,  and decided to establish a new plant.  The town that is now Vandergrift emanated from that move. Tne services  of Mr. Olmstead, a landscape gardener,  were enlisted in laying out the town.  There are no streets crossing each  other at right angles ac Vandergrift. All  the streets curve, and form the arcs of  circles. They are of unusual width, and  are paved with vitrified brick. The  town has the appearance of being founded on the site of a park, for (lower buls  are laid out everywhere, and all the  houses are provided with garden spaces  in front and rear. From the neighboring hills Vandergrift, with its curving  streets, its handsome houses, its fine  church buildings and ' its handsome  Casino, has the appearance of being the  most beautiful and prosperous community in that part of the country.  Thro are ao poor or ugly looking  structures. The company, profiting by  the mistakes of others, made no attempt  to build the houses for the employees  of the mills. It purchased the site for  the town and to ensure permanent beauty of plan had it laid out by tht landscape gardener, paved the streets, put  in sewers and water and electric lighting plants, divided the town into building lots, fixed a price for each lot, and  then left the workmen to erect the  houses to suit their individual tastes.  The painful monotony of the model  town of the former order was avoided  in Vandergrift by the common sense  plan. The builders of the houses took  a pride in planning them in accordance  with their own ideas of beauty and convenience, and instead of stepping into a  structure built after one general design the employees of the American  Steel Company could say that the houses  were thoir own, from architect's drawings to the last slate on the roof.  The company has proceeded all along  on the plan of helping the workmen to  help themselves. When it was found  that some public building was needed  where the Vandergriftians could gather  for social enjoyment the erection of a  casino was made possible by the donation of the ground for the site and the  offer of $14,000 toward the construction,  THANKS  TO THE  GOOD PU8LIC  We desire to thank  you all for tne  hearty support you  have given us during the present season.

Tbe building, which cost $32,000, and  has a free library containing '2500 volumes, is used for public assemblies. The  live handsome church buildings in Vandergrift were built on ground given by  the company, the only stipulation made  being that the buildings should cost not  less than $5000.  Church life is a very important part  of the scheme of things in Vandergrift,  for there are no saloons and none are  allowed in.the place. No liquor can be  procured except by sending to a neighboring town. To this ruling of the company the Vandergriftians ascribe the fact  that the services of only one _ olio-man.  are needed to maintain order in their  town of 6000 inhabitants.  According to the owner of one of the  pretty houses that are to be snen in  every street in Vandergrift, the prices  charged by the company for gas, electric light and water are very reasonable.  In this man's house' the rooms are  heated by a furnace burning natural gas,  and the cooking and laundry work are  done with the same fuel. For four years  he has paid on the average annually  $34.40 for gas, $16.83 for electric light,  $12.75 for water aud $33.75 for taxes.  The company is "prepared to hand over  all municipal business to the town just  as soon as the town is prepared to conduct this business for itself.  There has never been a strike in-Vandergrift. During the steel strike the  : mills continued in operation steadily.  The policy of the company has been as  far-sighted in the condiict of its own affairs as in the planning" and management of the town. Every effort is being  made to run the mills steadily without  closing for repairs for the customary  four or five weeks yearly. The mills-  close Saturday morning, and repairs and  cleanina are done on that day, and the  machinery is always kept in good condition. Every employee.'in. a department that cannot close on Saturday is  given a full day of rest each week. Another innovation is in the payment of  the men. They are not compelled to  stand in line and receive their pay from  a window, but is taken to them by regular messengers. Advancement in the  mills is governed by civil- service, in  whicli the best man is given the preference for promotion, without regard to  personal friendship or interest.  As a result of the excellent policy of  the company, and the care shown to  convince the men.that they are regarded  not as mere machines, but as valuable  employees, there has been attracted to  Vandergrift a class of fine workmen. A  recent census showed that the average  age of the skilled workmen is 32, and  that 90 per cent of. them are native  born Americans.

Sioux City board ot* education 1ms solved  ii :uobl_ni that still torments many of the  .school district- of tlio United States, in  the evolution. school recesses have  disappeared and the day is almost one continuous session. Shall Ihe pupil be compelled lo go through the school day without  food, or shall time be allowed at noon tor  luncheon'.' How and where shall the luncheon be provided and eaten? Sioux City,  however has settled all that for itself by  cstnbli-hlnur a lunchroom or restaurant, in  tin: high, school, where hot meals are  served at small cost to such of the stuP  d_:u.s as care to take advantage of the  ylan.  The chanzre to the modern one session  plan was made In the Sioux City high  school abouL three years ago. By reason of  it Hie noon recess was reduced from an  hour and one-half's duration lo half an  hour. The cliuiiffe, when lirst made, immediately sained the approval of both parents and mauls, not alone because of tho  earlier hour at which tlie pupils got away  from the buildin_- in the afternoon, but  because of tlie better work possible in a  eontinuous session. Within the course of a  few mouths, however, complaint was  lodged with the board of education' to the  effect, thai the short noon session was op-  crating' to the detriment of the health of  tlie pupils. An investigation by the board  sliowvd that the eoin:��iaint was well founded. A great many of tin; students brought  cold lunches with ihetn���lunches that were  eaten in baste al tlie school. Others living  not a great distance from iho building; hastened to limit* homos and bolted such food  ns they had time to eat. while others repaired lo nearby shops and bought pastry,  ice cream, sandwiches and other indigestible sniff. Not one of these methods could  be approved by tlio. committee of the board  making I ho Investigation. And in casting  about for n remedy ihe high school restaurant came into being.  .Director Kdwin 11. JJrown was the member of the board detailed lo look into, litis  matter, and lie it was who proposed'- tho  establishment of a lunchroom. Mr. Brown  does not assert that the idea is .entirely  original with him. but. he lays claim to  making the original proposition in Sioux  City. His recommendation was unanimotis-  !y adopted, and he was empowered to carry  il into effect.  Some time was spent in getting tho- machinery for tlie restaurant in operation.  Air. Brown realized thai the plan was  largely in tlie nature of an experiment. As  he was confident that ii would be a popular  success if rightly managed, he did not care  to make any mistakes at the outset lo  prejudice either tlie pupils or their parents  against it. He wanted to make, sure that  the food served would be clean, wholesome  and palatable, and that the lunchroom  itself would be attractive to patron students. His plan did not contemplate having the board of education directly operate the restaurant, but rather that it  should secure some competent person for  that oflice, the board to exercise supervision only. After some search a woman  was found who lilled all requiremtns, and  who was willing to make the small investment necessary���Mrs. Nellie C. Kobson, a  motherly, cheery, middle-aged person who  has raised a family in Sioux City and  knows all about home cooking.  Mrs. Robson agreed to operate the restaurant. Mr. Brown, representing the board  of education, prescribed the menu and the  prices to be charged, stipulating that each  day something warm should be served. In  this capacity Mr. Brown is thoroughly at  home, as he is himself a talented cook,  having- made a study of foods and their  values tho greater part of his life. All the  profits of the undertaking were lo go to  Mrs.  Hobson.  "It wa.s my-, own opinion," said Mr.  Brown, speaking*- to tlio correspondent,  "that the pupils of the high school would  bo betler_ with no. lunch whatever at- the,  noon hour, and that such abstinence would  inflict no hardship on them, i realized,  however ,that such a proposition, if made,  would be unpopular, so 1 proposed what  1 thought was the next best tiling, a light,  win-in lunch.  "Brain workers do not require much in  the stomach during the day. In fact, a  hearty meal at the noon hour is a distinct  detriment, impeding tlio processes of the  brain and inducing an Inert, sleepy condition. Therefore I directed that no pastry or  other food dillicult to digest should be  served in the school restaurant. That a  favorable'result hits followed the. adoption  of  this iilan  1 am certain."  At llrst many critics believed that this  was a visionary plan and was foredoomed  to failure. However, the restaurant Is now  ln its second year, and il has ben a sun-  cess from tlie outset. It has eliminated any  possible excuse for complaint for the short  noon recess, and It provides an economical, palatable, digestible and hoa!lhfu\l  lunch for those pupils unable to go lo  their homes. In fact, ii is believed thai the  high schol luncheon is belter for tlie students than.that whicli they would got at  home, as many families still adhere to the  custom of serving a hearty dinner at the  noon  hour. ���_,-  The. number of patrons varies from dtfy  to day. The high schol and tlie business department in the same building have a combined enrollment of about 500 pupils. Mrs.  Kobson has never served less than ninety  customers on any one day, and from that  number on up to fully, three-fourths of. th,c  entire enrollment patronize her. In pleasant  SHEEIPFS SALE.  weather Mrs. Robson Is not particularly,  busy, but on cold, stormy days her hand-  are full. Some of the' pupils geftheir entire"  luncheon from her, while others bring a  light lunch from home and supplement it  with something warm from the counter,  such as cocoa, soup gingerbread, etc. The  latter is practically considered one of the  best features of the restaurant.  Appetizing odors greet the nostrils as one  eaters the warm lunchroom from the keen  outer air. A section of the basement of the  high schol building has ben given over to  the restaurant. .Light streams in through  four windows on the south and from an  equal number on the north. The floor is of  cement, and scrupulously clean. Plain pine  tables, and ordinary "school seats are provided for the lunchers. la the center of  the room are the counters for the preparation and display of the food and the tw^  gas stoves on which the cooking is done.  A small closet in the adjacent -wall furnishes a convenient pantry. The daiHy  menu is displayed on a black board on the  wall.'  Mrs. Robson was busy, but not too busy  to chat with the newspaper man while  she worked. She said she aimed to have  on the bill of fare every day meat and  potatoes, a vegetable and a sauce. Some  of the work of preparing tho food she does'  at her home, but the actual-work of cook-  nig is mostly done at the high school; The  bill of fare for one day last week will give  a fair idea of what sort of luncheon is  served. It is as follows: ~  PrieeB Cents.  tomato soup  |$  Soup and crackers .'..'.  5  Baked    potatoes      3  Butter   .... -.  l  Wienerwursts  2  Beef croquetles 2  Apple  sauce     4  Peanut sandwich           ;*  Rolls     '. *2  Apples    '.'.'.'.''i  Gingerbread    ..;  2  Cocoa   . ? -.  3  Milk  3  Mrs. Robson said there was buta small  prolit in the undertaking, and that 'this  was only realized by careful management:  She finds-It-particularly difficult this year,  when prices of meats, vegetables, aihd>  fruiis are so much higher than formerly,  lo make more than she spends. With "a  patronage in excess of 100 a day, however,  she is able to realize something, and if the  price' of potatoes does not go beyond the  present point a profitable margin is assured.  Promptly at 12:30 the student; patrons  flock in, and an onslaught follows.- -In a  moment almost' Mrs. Robson'- 'carefully  prepared tood nis dlappearea trom: tne  tables, and the boys and girls are Seated,  devouring with relish the appeti-flTfg-vi-  ands. It is a merry crowd of scholars, with  much laughter and raillery, but, although  everyone seras to make haste, there is no  confusion or misconduct or ill-nature.  To avoid confusion in making change,!  Mrs. Kobson sells paper checks, which are  given out by a young woman acting as  cashier in lots of from five to twenty-fiv.ei  cents' worth. These checks are taken at  tlie counter in exchange for food. So well  has the serving of the luncheon been sys-  CLASSIFIED ADS.  ARTICLES. FOR" SALE.  SEWING MACHINES OF ALL.
