OUTNUMBER BOYS IN WASHING
TON HIGH SCHOOLS BY 12 02.
More Than C6 Per Cent of Pupils
Are Sons and Daughters of
OLTMPIA. Wash, Sept. 1. (Special.)
Of tha children attending the high
schools of the state more than 26 per
cent are sons and daughters of manual
laborers; more than 14 per cent are
children of farmers and but 6 per cent
come from families, the' heads of which
are professional men.
This U but one of a number of In
teresting facts brought out in a pam
phlet written by Thomas E. Latimer, A.
B., a student In the educational semi
nary In the State University, and pub
lished by the State Department of Edu
cation. The report also shows that parents
of about 16 per cent of the students
are employers or merchants, and of
these S per cent are real estate dealers.
Parents of 14 per cent of the students
are salaried employes, and in this lat
ter class less than 1-S of 1 per cent of
all the parents are newspaper men.
Reports covering about T per cent of
the students gave no occupation for
parents and these should be probably
classed as manual laborers.
Of the 488 teachers, 263 are female;
357 are college graduates, and but 82
are not graduates of some college or
normal school. Ninety-six different ed
ucational Institutions are represented
In the list of those in which high school
teachers of this state received their
degree. Including six' foreign schools.
The enrollment shows 9,864 students of
whom 5,663 are girls. Of these 735 are
enrolled from outside the high school
district. Students wholly or in part
self-supporting, exclusive of those at
tending the high schools In Seattle,
Spokane and Tacoma, number 423, of
whom 298 are boys.
Mr. Latimer says in closing his re
port: "In the United States at large. 43
per cent of the high school students
are In the first year, and but 13 per
cent in the fourth year. The percent
age in this state is seen to be below
ven this average.
"The board of directors are doing
what they can to encourage attendance
of the student that has passed the
eighth grade, aa Jit per cent of the
schools reporting admit students from
outside the district without tuition."

Few Months Later Resigns .
Himself to Fate.
SEATTLE, Wash., Sept. 1. Lee a John
ston, who was arrested yesterday on the
charge of murdering his wife at Nome,
Alaska, and then dismembering and ore
mating the body, has, according to the
police, confessed that he is a bigamist
and that he was married to" Mrs. Cora
Tasch Johnston in 1908, deserting her a
few months later, but to whom he re
turned after the death of Belle Gilchrist,
the woman he married In Butte, and for
whose death he is now held responsible.
The police believe they have woven a
strong chain of circumstantial evidence
around Johnston. They say Johnston
broke down and- wept, saying he would
resign himself to his fate.

Johnston, they left for Alaska. The
last letter Smith received in Mrs.
Johnston's own' handwriting was
about 18 months ago. Since then two let

1500 or S00. In each case it being ex
plained that Mrs. Johnston had Droxen
her arm and was dictating the letter to
her husband. The money was sent and
the drafts came back Indorsed in the
handwriting of her husband.
Three months ago, Johnston came here
and demanded an accounting of the
money belonging to Mra Johnston. Mr.
Smith's suspicions were by this time
aroused, and he hesitated about taking
action without papers better than those of
power of attorney.
Johnston flew Into a wrath, and going
to Smith's employer, told him that he
had papers In his pocket that would send
Smith to the penitentiary. Johnston again
approached Smith with threats, but the
latter told hlra that he would have noth
ing further to do with him, and Johnston
desisted from further attempts to get
money, and was not seen again.
Smith then communicated with Ross
Neagetv general passenger agent of tha
Oregon Railway & Navigation Company
In Seattle, who Investigated, and found
that Johnston was living with a woman
other than Belle Gilchrist, who repre
sented herself as Johnston's wife. The
officers were then notified and Johnston's

EXERCISE YOCR LITER
The value of proper exercise aa a me am
of rainfiitr and preserving health has be
come generally well known. There are a
number o? good ways of exercising the va
rious outer muscles and parts of the body.
There is also one good way of exercising
the Inner organs, particularly the liver. The
Inner organism is a sort of automatic ma
chine, and the principal thing necessary to
its proper performance and exercts of its
parts Is to keep it clean and well oiled, so
that It doesn't clog and run Irregularly.
The liver is one of the most Important
parts of this machine. When it stops, the
machine stops. When It works badly, the
machine works- badly and if It's your ma
chine, you suffer. A very simple and good
way to keep your liver going right and to
avoid alt Ills, such as constipation, bilious
ness, headache, jaundice, giddiness sour
stomach, rising bile, is to take Lane's Pills
the one best liver exerciser.
Lane's pills act directly on the liver and
never gripe. Gentle, but sure. One pill Is
a dose, and there are twenty-five doses In
the 2Tc bottle. Made by Chas. E- Lane A
