bead, having placed the muzzle of
the gun in his mouth and pulled the
trigger with a striog tied to his foot.

no cue knew anything of his where

received. His act was no doubt due
to despondency over ill health.

FROM SUPT. NOTSON.
I have been visiting and studying
the sohools of Minneapolis. Th
schools of this city are reputed to
be among those which stand in the
front lines, and mv observations have
tended to confirm in my mind the
position assigned them.
I was interested in the health cam
paign carried on in the schools.
Every school is visited daily bv a
school physioian or a school nurse,
often by both. Contagious diseases
are nipped in the bud. Notice to
parents often enables them to ward off
threatened disesaes which are in the
early stages of development, thussav
iog loss of time on the part of the
In one of the largest sohools I vis
ited, a grade school, each pupil had
his own cup, and the water is kept in
a closed jar id the room and is diawn
through a faucet. This seems to be
preferred to bubbling fountains, for
the little folks.
Large placards are displayed in the
school rooms, showing the flv in all
its stages nf 'development and the
facility with which it propagates its
kind. Appeals are made to the pupils
to kill the fly, and the danger to the
spread of disease by the flv are plain
ly set forth. The city is also carry
ing on a wholesale war on the fly.
The light in the rooms Is admitted
only from the rear and left ide or
from the left side alone. The shades
are all arranged upon adjusting rods.
The greatest care is used io ventila
ting thn rnnma. so as to keep cold
O r -- -
currents of air from strikirg the
pupil. The walls and ceilings are
painted in soft tints. The floors are
deadened so as to prevent the nerve
racking noise of trampiDg feet. I
think the number of cases of pupils
wearing glasses in the lower grades is
smaller than In the schools of our
county. Frequent calisthenlic and
breathing exercises, occupying from
one to two minutes, ar given by the
teachers. The recess is given in the
morning and afternoon in the grade
schools. Most of the high sohools
assemble at 9 o'clock and dismiss at
12:30, having only one session.
Enough for this time; more later.
