28 The Torrent engine house was found to be leakingc J badly and water running through damaging hose and Engine Company s room. Your board thought advisable to re-shingle towers and re-tin part of the roof. This caused an overdraw of $29.12 in that account. The sills are rotten and should be renewed this year to save the building. The piazza is also in bad condition and must be repaired. Tin for this purpose was purchased but not used on account of the appropriation.

43 T o t h e S u p e r in t e n d in g S chool C om m ittee a n d C itizens of r / p i >/ \ tt> > r ' p il From my intimate knowledge of the work of our schools during the past year I am able to form an intelligent opinion of their condition to-day, and I have pleasure in saying that opinion is a favorable one. Reason could be given for the statement that on the whole they are doing better work than ever before. Under the new method of administration we have happily got far beyond the possibility of hearing it truthfully said, as it frequently used to be in the good old days, that some school has been absolutely worthless and the money spent in its maintenance wasted. All our schools, with varying degrees of excellence are now accomplishing good results. Radical changes for the better are hardly to be expected from year to year, but with careful attention to the details of school management on the part of school officials aided by the active interest and co-operation of parents a gradual and constant improvement will be made as time goes by. SCHOOL BUILDINGS. The schoolroom is a workshop for teacher and pupils, and unless kept in prime condition and well supplied with the necessary appliances the daily output will suffer both in quantity and quality. one but a teacher knows the annoyance and positive damage to a ; school caused by the permitted existence of such little things as a broken pane of glass, a faulty door catch, an insecure stovepipe, or an absent curtain. No 1 have made it a special point of my visits to the schools to look after matters of this kind and to have the necessary repairs made as promptly as possible. Quite extensive repairs have been made on two school buildings, the western one in the village and the one at Bucks Mills. Both rooms of the former have been newly painted, papered, and kalso- mined, and as light colors were used throughout, an altogether more cheerful look has been given to those rather gloomy interiors. The gutters on this building being found on examination to be badly decayed were replaced with new ones and a set of new conductors supplied. At Buck s Mills the old ceiling of the schoolroom has been covered
44 39 with one of Georgia pine and the walls repapered. This room has now an attractive appearance and will need no further repairs for years. As is usually the ease, the total cost of the repairs on these buildings much exceeded the estimate. Two of our schoolhouses still need to have considerable money ex Γ ϊ > pended upon them, those at the Center and at Long Pond. The seats of the former are nearly or quite fifty years old and have long outlived their beauty and usefulness. They should be removed this / season and modern desks put in their place. At Long Pond the demand for new seats should be put still more emphatically. These home-made articles which have, been there for a generation, were evidently intended primarily for the use of adults at funerals, social meetings, lyceums and the like, and incidentally for the discomfort and inconvenience of the children. As Γsat in the room the other day watching the little ones leaning far forward to reach the desk in front, with their feet swinging six inches from the floor, I mentally resolved that they should have a better chance to do their work in the future if my advice could bring it about. This is one of the largest and most interesting of our rural schools and fully deserves the best accommodations that can be afforded. addition to receiving new desks, the room should be newly painted and papered and the vestibule thoroughly repaired. SCHOOL BOOKS. Our school text-books having become so badly worn that new ones v O k J were imperatively demanded, advantage was taken of this necessity to adopt different ones in several branches of study. In After careful examination and comparison of the publications of various houses the following were selected as in our opinion best adapted to our schools : The Progressive Course in Heading, Heed and Kellogg s Series of Grammars, Reed s Speller, and Milne s Elementary Arithmetic. all more than 1,200 books have been purchased and nearly all of them placed in the schools. In By gathering up the worthless old books and returning them to the publishers in exchange, a saving of was effected for the town. Teachers and pupils alike always respond to the stimulus of new books, and money expended for them cannot fail of proving a good investment. This town has not hitherto furnished the copy-books used in writing though these are included with other hooks in the law upon tliis point. I find that parents are often delinquent in the matter of supplying them, and frequently not half the scholars will be furnished
45 40 with them at the opening of a term. As writing is too important a thing to be neglected, I advise that in the future schools shall be provided with copy-books at the town s expense. fivi t t rrτi Pupils from Verona have been in the habit of attending our schools for years past without paying tuition, but as the number kept increasing the School Committee two years ago voted that a weekly rate of twenty-five cents should be charged for the privilege. Little heed being paid to this action, the committee last spring authorized me to refuse to admit to our schools any pupil owing for tuition until such bills had been settled. Notice to this effect was sent to the parties concerned, and I am glad to say that all bills due on this account have been pleasantly adjusted either by actual payment or by the promise of early settlement. Up to date, $82.00 has been collected and deposited with the Treasurer. There are at present in the \ il- * lage schools twelve such tuition-paying pupils from Verona, two from Orlancl, and one from Dedham. * THE GRAMMAR SCHOOL. The large attendance at the Grammar School is gratifying evidence of the estimation in which this school is justly held. If any citizen still has doubts as to the wisdom of the town in accepting Mr. Npof- fo.id s offer of a chance to support this expensive luxury/ an hour spent in this room might lead him to change his opinion. The visitor would soon notice that the scholars were almost without exception earnestly at'work each minding his own business and paying little attention to his neighbor s doings. If a recitation were in progress, lie could not fail to be pleased with the attention given by each member of the class, and to the thoroughness of the drill received, work is required of them of course, but pupils of this grade are old enough to realize the necessity of hard work if they are to derive any real benefit from their school life. Graduates of the school, who know it best, are its warmest friends and acknowledge that they were taught there what going to school should really mean. The correct behavior of the pupils is sutliciently shown by the fact that scarcely a mark or scratch can be found about the building to indi- J o cate that it has been occupied for seven terms by from sixty to seventy-five wide-awake boys and girls. As to its being an expensive luxury, attention is invited to the last column of the aeeom- 7 panying, table. *
46 41 TEACHERS. More changes and transfers among our teaching force have taken place than during last year. On account of illness Miss Jennie Homer, so long and acceptably connected with the West Intermediate School, Avas unable to take the winter term and was succeeded by Evelyn Hall, and Miss Susie Googins shortly after the beginning of the same term was obliged for a similar reason to re- O O sign her position of assistant at the East Primary. Three new teachers have been employed, Miss Grace Nichols and Miss Louise Page of this town, aud Miss Grace Dow of Brooks, Me., a graduate of the Castine Normal School. In eight schools there has been no change of teachers during the year, six have each had one change, while Millvale has had the novelty of a different teacher each term. FREE HIGH SCHOOL. The E. M, C. Seminary is progressing finely under its present management. The attendance lias increased of late, new apparatus has been purchased for the department of Physical Sciences, the gymnasium is well patronized, and matters in general seem to be running very smoothly at I lie old institution. %J %J ν Judging from the uniformly favorable opinion f hear them give of the teachers, the students must be doing excellent advertising work for the school.

MUSIC. Musical instruction in the village schools continues to thrive under Mrs. Godfrey s care. It is interesting to see how readily pupils of even the lower grades can learn the simplest elements of the art. a recent visit to the Grammar school while singing was going on, the interest taken by nearly all in the exercise'was gratifying, and the result of their effort very pleasing to one uncritical hearer at least. IN CONCLUSION. The S. S. Committee were pleased last spring to grant the Superintendent a liberal amount of power under the statute, but no action of importance has been taken b}7him without their knowledge, and he has to thank them for many courtesies, good advice, and much pleasant intercourse. After spending more than a hundred half-days in visits to their schoolrooms it would have been easy for me to speak more in detail of the merits and deficiencies of each teacher. In On Personal criticism of this sort, however, is usually most beneficial when given in private to the one chiefly interested. Suffice it to say that though some of them are lacking in experience, and many in professional training, as a body they have done faithful and efficient service. T h e y are worthy members of that vast profession concerning which an admirer has spoken in terms that to every thoughtful citizen will not seem wholly extravagant: Off with your hats in presence of the American School-mistress! She is the most potent factor in the world s civilization to-day, for her hand is shaping the future of the mightiest nation on earth. Respectfully submitted, A. A. LITTLEFIELD, Supt.
