Juvenile Court has been addressing large public meetings in the cities of the state. The experiment of separate Juvenile Courts in small cities is being tried with flattering success. Other than Salt Lake City the other cities having the Courts are, Ogden 20,000 inhabitants, Provo 8,000 and Logan 7,000. Chief Probation officers have been appointed for nearly every county of the state, these acting under County Juvenile Courts with the District Judges acting as Juvenile Judges in the counties in which they have jurisdiction.

Acting under the law, Judge Brown of Salt Lake City has established a Detention Home, having secured for this purpose a large fifteen-room brick house, one of the old mansions of former days. With the assistance of a few public-spirited citizens, this place was furnished, and the home called the Morris School in honor of the Mayor, who is chairman of the Juvenile Court Commission.

The Morris School was conducted three weeks before the public was aware that Salt Lake had one of the best detention homes to be found. Up to date there has been an average of 20 boys in the School. It contains a regular class room with a special teacher, Miss King, formerly of Cleveland, Ohio, who has years of experience in the teaching of backward and deficient youth.

At the state convention of Women's Clubs, after an address by. Judge Brown, the ladies took up the matter of a Boys' Industrial Farm, and this movement is inaugurated by a committee from the Utah Federation of Women's Clubs.

A Juvenile Court for Idaho's Capital City.

When Governor Gooding of Idaho was in Chicago in the fall of 1904 he visited the Juvenile Court and was so impressed with the conduct of the court by Judge Mack that immediately on his return to Boise City, he enlisted the splendid organization of women called the Columbian Club, with the result that the last legislature passed a most excellent Juvenile Court law. It is taken largely from the Colorado law, having embodied in it, however, a good school law. It also contains the adult delinquency clause.

In order to create a public sentiment for the establishment of the court, Judge Willis Brown of the Salt Lake City Juvenile Court visited Boise. He first enlisted the boys of the city and held two meetings of the youngsters, until they were enthusiastically interested. Following two public meetings of citizens were held, the last one taxing the largest auditorium of the city to hold the people. Governor Gooding presided and Judge Brown explained to the parents the objects of the Juvenile Court and something of its manner of proceedings.

The law provided that the Juvenile Court shall be administered by the County Probate Judges. Judge Jonas Brown of Boise is the judge of the Juvenile Court. No provision being made for pay of probation officers, Mr. J. C. Clark, the Secretary of the Boys' Department of the Y. M. C. A., agreeing to serve, was then and there appointed by Judge Jonas Brown as Chief Probation Officer, and the Governor asked for a public ratification of this excellent selection.

Probation Officer Clark accompanied Judge Willis Brown to Salt Lake and spent a week studying methods, and now Boise City has a splendid Juvenile Court, supported by the whole community. Judge Brown visits Pocatello, Idaho, shortly to assist in the establishment of the Juvenile Court of this city.

Well, Mr. Warren stopped at the corner of the piazza and said, “Miss Stanton, will you ride down to Medicine Butte this afternoon ?"

Kitty leaned over the railing and said, "I am sorry but I have promised to ride with Mr. Hurd.”

Mr. Warren looked disappointed and scratched some paint off the piazza with his sword then he looked up suddenly and said, "Are you an absolute truthful person?”

Kitty laughed a little and got kind of pink and said she was.

“All right, then,” he said, “I can wait. Jim will ride with me this afternoon, won't you Jim?"

I said I'd like to first-rate, and then I thought and I told him, “I can't. Kitty is going to ride Jerry.”

But he said, "I am training one of the troop horses so you can ride Kathleen."

Kathleen's just the dandiest little mare; Mr. Warren got her in Kentucky. I think Kathleen's a fine name for a horse; Sergeant Callahan says it's Irish for Kitty. Well, of course I said that was great and I was ever so much obliged.

Then he started up the line, but pretty soon he turned back and said, "Miss Stanton!” and Kitty said, “Well?" and he said, “Don't go to Medicine Butte."

"Why not?" Kitty asked, “It is the pleasantest ride about here."

"I know it is," he said, "and I want to take you there myself. Tell Hurd that you want to go to the lake.”

Kitty laughed and said she would see about it, and then he went home.
