ATTENDANCE BIDS FAIR TO BE
Tho Number of Pupils Who Will
Attend tho High School Will
Trobably Exceed by Neatly 200
the Number Who Attended Last
Year Three New Kindergartens to
Be Opened Number of Chlldten in
the City Between the Ages of 0
and 10 Years.
The attendance at the public schools
during the coming school year, which
opens next Tuesday morning, pioni
Ibcr to be the largest In the history of
the city. It Is expected that the at
tendance at the High Hi'hool alone will
be nearly 200 In excess of the attetid
ui"e Iant year.
The only new schools which nie to
be opened nt the beginning of the
year are a two-room annex In the
Tenth ward and an additional room on
Couit street. The former two rooms
nie to be opened In old No. fi srhool
to accommodate the ovettlow from No.
3S rchool, while the latter room Is to
be opened In n building In which one
room has been In use for some time
ns an annex to No. 21 school.
The full kindergarten nysleni, which
came under the supervision of the
school boaid, nearly two years ago, Is
being rapidly extended to nil pints of
the city. Three new kindergartens
will be opened this yeat In addition
to the four which have been opened
during til past two years.
The new kindergartens will be lo
cated In No. 2 school in tho Twelfth
nurd. In old No. 5 school In the Tenth
ward, and in No. 9 school in the Sev
enth wattl. The other kindergartens
are located In the i:ighth, Thirteenth,
Fourth and Twentieth wards.
It will be hard to tell ,he peicen
tnge of increased attendance at the
High school until the opening day, but
it is believed that there will be at
least 150 nnd probably 200 moie pupils,
than last year. There are over 100
more (Iinmmar A certificates of nil
mlsrion to the High school than there
were last year. So assured at the
menih?is of the high and training
committee that the attendance will 'be
increased that they have ordeied the
removal of the training school to No,
lti school, in the Fourteenth ward.
The changes in the teaching force
In the several schools will be very
slight and tho number of new bench
ers very small. It will be necsary to
engage two or peihaps thtee new
teachers for the High school, hut no
apoplntments will be made until after

It Is seldom that a young man who
linn enteied the rallioad business gains
.such nn enviable position in so short
a time ns has John K. Welsh, the
traveling passenger nnd freight ngent
of the Ontario and Western railroad.
Only a few yeaie ago Mr. Welsh was
tho "star" operator of the Western
I'nlon Telegraph company In this city,
nnd since bis entry Into rjllroad circles
his progress has been remarkably fast.
When he enteied the employ of the

position, nnd has since established a
record for himself thetcln. There bns
been a marked inicrcnse- In the freight

success Is dlicctly attributable to a
strict application to duty, well directed
work, and a personal affability that
chnracterlzes him as a ft lend whose
friendship Is worth something.
To be a member of the Convention
of Leaders among1 tho Managera and
Agents of The Fidelity Mutual Life In
surance company Is nn honor which
seldom falls to a new man In that line
of business, yet It Is a pleasure to note
that David W. Davis, the company's
Scranton repiescntatlve, has been
chosen, nnd that be has also nttalned
the position of general agent in this
district within a year's time.
Mr. Davis joined the company's forces
Inst September, and Inside of ten
months made a reputation as nn under
writer that Is seldom, If ever, equalled
by a new beginner. The distinction he
has won entitles him to a week's stay
in Philadelphia as a guest of the com
pany, nnd another week nt Hotel Den
nls, at Atlantic City, beginning today
and lasting until September 7.
Mr, Davis was for many years one
of the leading minstrel soloists In the
profession, nnd has had a varied ex
perience In the theatrical business. He
possesses a rich baritone voice of high
range and quality, and is one of the
most popular members of the William
Connell Anthracite Glee club. He leaves
this momlntc for Philadelphia.
Of the many sturdy young athletes
who have won laurels for themselves
and this city on the base ball diamond
or foot ball gridiron, one of the latest
to distinguish himself Is Hlchard F.
Nallln, of South Scranton.
This young man joined the Norrls
town seml-piofesslonal team late last
week, and In the game played by his

aggregation of fast 'semis" the Scran

after having established for himself
an enviable record there ns nn nll
arouud athlete. He captained the foot
ball team in liiOO, playing end anil
half-back, nnd was first baseman of
the base ball team. After the college
season was over he played with the
Chester team, one ot the fastest semi
professional nines In the country.
That this latter stntement Is no Idle
assertion Is given pretty nmple proof
bv the fact that at the end of tho Na
tional league season of 1000 the t'hes
teis defeated Shettsllne's Philadelphia
team. Young Townsend pitched for
Chester and wns Immediately signed
by the Philadelphia manager. He Is
now twirling good ball for the Quak
ers. The many friends of Thomas K.
Sliamp, former Tribune agent at ttlen-
bum, Pa., will be pleased to learn of
his rapid advancement In the 1'nlted
States signal service. At the outbieak
of hostilities between the T'nlted States
and Spain he cast his lot with the
Thirteenth regiment and served with
honor, lining n telegraph operator, he
was transferred to the I'nlted States
signal service nnd was assigned to do
duty In Cuba, where his ability was
early recognized by his superiors, A
promutlon Immediately followed nnd
when the telegraphic service was ab
sorbed by private parties, he was hold
ing the position of Reneral Inspictnr
lie wns later sent to Alaska, where
forty miles of telegraph lines were
built tinder his supervision, establish
