KEPOET OF THE SELECTMEN. 



Fellow Citizens of Hyde Park : — 

Your Selectmen have the honor to present the following 
report, annexed to which may be found a detailed statement 
of receipts and expenditures for the year ending January 
31, 1886, together with the reports of other town officials. 
In our report, matters of minor importance are omitted, 
while those of more account are herein noted for your con- 
sideration. 

TOWN HALL LOT. 

By vote of the town March 18th, 1885, the Selectmen 
were authorized to "sell and convey" the land owned by 
the town and known as the "Town Hall lot," situated on 
River street and Gordon avenue, containing 5,919 square 
feet of land. Consequently, after having advertised the 
sale, said land was offered at public auction and sold on 
the 29th day of August last. The price received was 43 
cents per square foot, amounting in the aggregate to 
$2,545.17, which sum w 7 as received and turned over to 
your treasurer. 

HIGHWAYS. 

A large part of the Highway appropriation for this year 
w T as devoted to the payment of outstanding bills. With the 
balance (including the amounts transferred to it) all has 
been done that could be under the old system adhered to, 
until within a few months, wdien a partial change was 
effected, which we hope to see more fully carried out by 
our successors in office, or by some action of the town. A 
change which may be brought about by a board of selectmen 
who will appoint and employ a Superintendent of High- 
ways, who shall devote his whole time and attention to the 
discharge of the duties thus devolving upon him. We are 



certain that by the adoption of this method a large saving 
can be made to the town in its expenditures of the Highway 
department. And we consider this a matter of special 
importance to the town at this time, because so much more 
attention will be needed on our streets and sidewalks during 
the coming year than, heretofore, and consequently a much 
larger outlay required. Our main thoroughfares (Hyde 
Park avenue, Central Park avenue and River street) need 
quite extensive repairs almost their entire length, besides 
some changes in the grades in order to better provide for 
surface drainage. 

SIDEWALKS. 

The stone work, undertaken last year, has been completed 
by extending the curbing from East River street to Hyde 
Park avenue. Besides which, edge-stone have been placed 
on one side of West River street, from Gordon avenue to 
Glenwood avenue, and concrete walks laid down from Glen- 
wood avenue to Cleveland street, where we were compelled 
to stop the work. Although every arrangement had been 
entered into with Mr. K. W. Dodge, for concreting the 
entire distance where stone has been located, and having 
arranged for the stock he will be prepared to fulfil his part 
of the agreement promptly in the early spring. In tabu- 
lated form, herewith annexed, we render (so far as practi- 
cable) a statement of expense ; no bills having been pre- 
sented, nor claims made, upon abuttors, except where the 
sidewalks were fully constructed. A large part of the 
expense between Cleveland and Linwood streets is not 
given because of a decree by the Count}' Commissioners, 
December Itith, 1885, changing the lines and location of 
River street between these points, which will necessitate the 
resetting of the edge-stone for quite a distance, undoubtedly 
causing some variations in the measurements and expense 
of the same. In this connection it seems proper to state 
that the decree of the County Commissioners, above referred 
to, requires the change or construction of River street, in 



this location, to be completed within six months from the 
date thereof. 

Other than the foregoing, in continuation of the system 
adopted by this board, five citizens, apparently impatient 
for this improvement, have been allowed to furnish (at their 
own expense) the stone, which has beeu placed in front of 
their several estates, by the town, at the expense of the 
appropriation for sidewalks. But we would not advise a 
repetition of this method, thinking it far better, for all 
concerned, if the town will adhere to some definite plan or 
system, and proceed as rapidly as possible, to the end that 
substantial sidewalks may be constructed in all parts of our 
town.

METROPOLITAN AVENUE. 

From Beacon street to Milton line (decreed by the 
County Commissioners, November 5, 1881) has been con- 
structed in a thorough and substantial manner, under the 
supervision of Mr. D. W. Phipps, and the Commissioners 
have signified their acceptance of the same. Although this 
decree did not call for sidewalks, it was thought best to con- 
struct them, as no street seems finished without. Besides, 
such a course seemed all the more necessary for the reason 



that large quantities of material had been removed from 
this part of the proposed way, compelling the town to fur- 
nish material with which to fill in again. The appropriation 
for this work was $2,500 ; cost of construction, $1,88(5.80 ; 
balance unexpended and transferred to highways, $613.20. 

MILTON AVENUE DRAINAGE. 

Some 3'ears ago, the surface water flowing down Milton 
avenue was conducted across Beacon street by a stone cul- 
vert, without providing a proper way for its downward 
course to the river. Consequently, a very large wash-out 
was the natural result, carrying away the entire surface 
of a proposed road- way (the extension of said Milton 
avenue) together with a large portion of the adjoining land 
on the northerly side, and to a considerable depth; to repair 
which the entire excavation has been filled in to the original 
orade. The covered stone culvert above referred to has 
been extended about one hundred and fifty feet, there con- 
necting with an eighteen-inch tile drain of about three hun- 
dred feet in length ; thence by an open, concrete gutter 
nearly one hundred feet, to the river. The cost of this 
work was $770.50, of which $600 was the direct appropria- 
tion. $50 contributed by Mr. F. N. Tirrell, and the balance, 
$120.30, was paid from the incidental appropriation by vote 
of the town. 

WILLIAMS AVENUE DRAINAGE. 

A twelve-inch tile drain has been laid, conncctino- the 
culvert crossing this avenue near the residence of Mr. 
George Sanford, to a new culvert constructed at the junc- 
tion of said avenue with Water street : thence continuino- 
under ground to a culvert crossing Water street opposite 
the residence of Wm. J. Stuart. An expenditure which 
Ave trust will prevent all further difficulty arising from the 
need of a sufficient outlet for surface water. This work 
was done under the management of Mr. Phipps, with an 



9 

appropriation of $1,000. Cost, $712.88; balance trans- 
ferred to highways, $287.12. 

GORDON AVENUE. 

Under the careful supervision of Mr. Charles E. Jenney, 
the task of grading and providing lor the drainage of this 
avenue was commenced with a hope of being able to carry 
it through within the amount appropriated, which was 
thought by some as too small for such a work. But Mr. 
Jenney managed so as to very nearly meet with success 
in the undertaking, bringing the work nearly to a finish 
for the amount specified. And having got the "way rea- 
sonahl}' safe and convenient," we chose to leave it so, 
rather than fully complete it, and by so doing overrun 
the appropriation. Therefore the final part is left to our 
successors, and we hope it will be the first to receive their 
attention. Appropriated, $2,000 ; received by sale of stone, 
$61.25; due and expended to date, $2,062.53; expended 
in excess of receipts, $1.28, and paid from incidental 
appropriation. 

PERKINS AVENUE 

Has been widened on the southerly side some twenty 
inches, the principal abuttors giving the land for so doing, 
thus providing a nice wide sidewalk between a row of large 
shade trees and the fronts of their several estates. The 
lower part of the street has been graded up in such a 
manner as to greatly improve the surface drainage — entirely 
preventing its flowing in upon the adjoining property. The 
appropriation for this work was $600. Amount expended, 
$717.48; in excess of amount appropriated, $117.48; paid 
from that for incidentals by vote of the town. 

SUNNYSIDE AND CHARLES STREET 

Have been "extended" through lands of Mr. Eobert 
Bleakie, to and along the line of lands owned by the 
town. By this means, quite a large tract of the best of 



10 

this "Happy Valley" property has been made far more 
accessible than could have been done in any other way. 
Appropriated for Sunnyside street, $260 ; expended, 
$244.15 ; balance unexpended, $15.85. Appropriated for 
Charles street, $300 ; expended, $331.49 ; amount in excess, 
$31.49 ; paid from appropriation for incidentals. 

ARLINGTON STREET. 

The money appropriated for repairing this street, near 
the Hazlewood station, has been expended, and although 
insufficient for putting the street to the proper grade, it 
has nevertheless greatly improved it, much to the satisfac- 
tion of the residents of that locality. Amount of appro- 
priation, $100 ; expenditures, $97.46 ; unexpended balance? 
$2.51. 

STREET LIGHTS. 

The lighting of our streets has been carried on under 
the same system as last year, in part by the Dedham and 
Hyde Park Gas Light Company (85 lights), and partly 
by the " Wheeler Reflector Co." of Boston, who are now 
lighting 149 lamps, under a contract entered into July 1, 
1885, for one year, on the same terms as before, five and 
one-half cents per lamp, per night. We have been unable 
to meet the Gas Company for the purpose of renewing 
agreements, consequently they are lighting on tho same 
terms as last year, but under no contract. Therefore the 
incoming board of Selectmen will be at liberty to arrange 
with them as best they can, at any time they choose. 

BY-LAWS. 

There seems to us, to be a necessity for early action 
on the part of the town looking to a revision of our By- 
Laws. And if such action is taken, we shall be glad to 
suggest to any committee having the matter in charge, 
such change as appears to us to be for the interests of 
the town.

POLICE. 



Chief of Police Charles E. Jenney, ably assisted by 
Officers O'Connell and Donlan, have performed their duties 
during the year to our entire satisfaction, aided somewhat 
by other officers of the department when necessity required. 
Officers Donlan and O'Connell have both sustained quite 
serious injuries from assaults committed upon them while 
in the faithful discharge of their duties. O'Connell is con- 
fined to his home with a fractured ankle at the present 
time, by reason of such assault committed Dec. 6th, last. 
So well directed have been their efforts to suppress the 
liquor traffic, that several saloons which were giving the 
officers a good deal of trouble one year ago, are now 
entirely closed out, with some of the proprietors gone from 
our town. For other particulars regarding the workings 
of this department, we refer to the Chief's report herein 
contained. 

WATER. 

The introduction of an abundant supply of pure water 
for our town, cannot be looked upon as other than of vast 
importance to all. And Hyde Park is in the enjoyment 
of everything that goes to make up a first-class water 
supply. In some respects it may be considered a luxury, 
in many others a necessity. Great benefit will be derived 
irom the Hydrant Service alone, in case of fires within 
our limits. For this service, the town has bound itself 
to pay the Hyde Park Watsr Co. the sum of fifty dollars per 
year (for the ensuing ten years), for each of the one hun- 
dred hydrants now at the service of the town. This con- 
tract went into effect October 1, 1885. 

In conclusion, we desire to add that every effort has 
been made by us to manage the affairs of the town, with 
which we have had to do, in such a manner as would 
enable us to say in this report, "There are no outstanding 
bills " But we can hardly make that statement, although 



12 

we feel that, practically, we have accomplished that object. 
There are, however, some small bills which have been 
presented, that remain unadjusted, for the reason that we 
have no knowledge of their ever having been contracted 
by the town. Besides these, the expense incurred by the 
snow during the past fifteen days must necessarily remain 
as outstanding bills, the appropriation being exhausted, and 
in all we do not think the amount will exceed $200. 

Respectfully submitted,

The Town Clerk requests information of any omission or error 
in the above tables, in order that the registration may be as com- 
plete as possible. Respectfully submitted, 

HENRY B. TERRY, Town Clerk. 



EEPOET OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 



It is with increased pleasure that the Board of Health 
this year makes out its annual report. More than ever we 
see the favorable results accruing from careful and syste- 
matic work in looking after the sanitary interests of the 
town. Many citizens who could not at first appreciate the 
importance of so much cleanliness about their grounds, 
houses, cellars, etc., now attend to it themselves without 
any suggestions from us. What surprises us often is to 
see how many more persons than formerly, without any hint 
from us, send for Mr. Crumett or Mr. Hukiu to clean out 
their cesspools and vaults twice yearly. It is seldom now 
that we order this work done at the owner's expense*. 

For the last year epidemic diseases have been much less 
severe, and of shorter duration, which partly may be attrib- 
uted to sanitary work. Diphtheria cases have been compara- 
tively light and more easily treated. We have had a good 
deal of scarlet fever, yet nearly all of the cases have recov- 
ered. Typhoid fever has not been so severe in character, 
and few deaths have resulted from it. Cholera has not 
invaded us, as we have so much anticipated and feared, 
but all precautions have been taken to be ready for its 
visitation. Fortunately small-pox has kept away from us 
up to this time. Vaccination, as a preventative, has more 
than ever been employed, so that our physicians have had 
an abundance of work to do in this line. 

In the following statistics of the number of deaths result- 
ing from epidemic and contagious diseases, we would not 
have our readers infer that we attribute the small mortality 
due entirely to sanitary measures employed by the Board 
of Health, for we have had the hearty co-operation of 



22 

the physicians and citizens in the good work. All have 
had a hand in keeping the death rate low : — 

Diphtheria, 24 cases and 1 death. 
Scarlet fever, 68 " " 2 deaths. 
Typhoid fever, 18 " " 1 death. 

The State requires us to keep a record of all contagious 
diseases only. A record of other diseases will be found in 
the town clerk's report. 

In speaking so encouragingly of what has been done thus 
far, we must not forget that a great deal of work has been 
left undone, and probably always will be so in any town. 
The town is growing every year, and more sanitary work 
is required in new streets and localities. For instance, 
more money is required for drainage. To relieve Business 
street from standing water, a ditch should be dug from this 
street down through Mr. Willett's to the river. There is a 
stagnant pool off Linwood street, very often complained 
of, which needs filling up. Our attention has been often 
directed to a pool and open drain in the rear of land for- 
merly occupied by Messrs. Balkam & Co. There are sev- 
eral other places of minor importance which need looking 
after. For the coming year the town should appropriate 
a small sum — say $500 — to be expended by the Board 
of Health as they deem necessary in doing this sanitary 
work. 

During the last year, at a small expense to the town, 
we have re-opened the ditch nearly through its whole 
extent, passing under Huntington avenue, and re-built the 
culvert, which had fallen through. 

For a few dollars we dug a ditch, which was badly 
needed, in the rear of Corson's and Raymond's stables, 
to conduct the water coming from Central Park avenue 
down through the marsh and then under the railroad. 

The expenditure of a little money will be an im- 
mense benefit to the health of the citizens. We hope 



23 

whoever is elected on the health board next year will 
.have the control of a small amount of money for needed 
improvements. 

The swine and swill question has received much attention 
from us during the year. We have often been requested 
by persons to contrive some method to get rid of their 
swill. In the emergenc3 r Ave were fortunate in finding a 
man who would collect the swill, when requested, for its 
value in feeding a small lot of swine in the suburbs of the 
town, without annoying any one. This is an experiment, 
and time will tell how the plan will work. Messrs. Hukin 
and Allen now attend to this sanitary work at their own 
expense. At a small expense to individuals, Mr. Hukin will 
also remove all of their ashes and rubbish. 

As the town grows larger, the varied kinds and sources 
of nuisances demand constant attention by the Board of 
Health, so at times it is difficult to satisfy the calls of all ; 
yet, upon the whole, the exactions of the public are rea- 
sonable. Respectfully, 

JOEL F. GOODWIN, Chairman. 
GEORGE F. DOWNES, 
CHARLES C. HAYES* Secretary. 



HYDE PARK LIBRAE! REPORT. 



As our town increases in inhabitants, the demand for 
books in our library increases proportionally. We now 
feel that the public library is almost a necessity, and that 
very few people would wish to dispense with it. Were it 
discontinued, our schools would be deprived of one of their 
most important adjuncts to a broad and liberal education. 
If the scholars were confined only to their text-books, their 
education would be comparatively cramped. The hints and 
suggestions made in their school exercises could not be car- 
ried out without reference to books found in the public 
library. More than ever the teachers advise their pupils 
to read books from which they can obtaiu a more complete 
idea of the subject in hand. Such being the case much 
attention should be given to the selection of proper books 
for the perusal of the young people. The teachers having 
a la'rge library for reference can better inform themselves 
in regard to what books are desirable for their scholars. 
The various literary clubs have been appreciative patrons 
of the library. Equal facilities are also found in the public 
library for those engaged in the practical pursuits of life. 
The artist, machinist, etc., can find books of reference 
which will meet their demands for knowledge in their sev- 
eral departments. 

The librarian, Mrs. H. A. B. Thompson, and her assis- 
tant, Miss Mary Hawley, have rendered good service, and 
have endeavored to give satisfaction to the patrons of the 
library. 

During the past year there has been added to the Library 
a complete set of Appleton's Encyclopaedia. 

There have been added to the Library the past year over 
400 books. 



25 

There have been 27,000 books given out during the year. 

There have been 356 new cards issued. 

$44.16 have been received in fines. 

There are about 8,300 books in the Library. 

The donations to the public library have been as fol- 
lows : — 

20 volumes from Mrs. W. H. Nightingale. 

1 volume from Mr. C. L. Woods. 

40 volumes from government at Washington. 

17 pamphlets from Washington. 

8 volumes from Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

1 pamphlet from State of Massachusetts. 

A case of owls from Mrs. W. J. Stuart. 

3 volumes from Hobart M. Cable. 

It might be interesting to some persons to know the 
number of books issued in different years. In 1880, 15,262 
were given out. In 1881 , 19,534. In 1883, 21,838. The 
attendance at the Rink, and the Y. M. C. Association, will 
account for the falling off of the books issued in 1884. 
For the Trustees, 

CHARLES C. HA^ES, M. D., 

Chairman.

Chief of Police and Keeper of Lock-up. 



ENGINEERS' KEPORT. 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen : — 

Gentlemen: — We herewith submit our report of this 
department for the year ending January 31st, 1886. The 
equipment of the department is as follows : 

2 Steam Fire Engines in o-ood order. 

2 Hose Carriages " " 

1 Hose Wagon " " 

1 Hose Jumper " " 

1 Hook and Ladder Truck in good order. 

1 Chemical Engine " " 

-1 sets Swinging Harness. 

500 feet new Cotton Hose. 

500 feet Cotton Hose, 1 year old. 

3000 feet Cotton Hose from 2 to 6 years old. . 

Upon the introduction of water to the town for lire pur- 
poses, it was decided to place the two Steam Fire Engines 
out of commission, and they will not be taken from the 
engine house excepting in case of emergency, but are to be 
kept in perfect order, for use at any moment. The com- 
panies formerly connected with the steamers have been done 
away with, and are now known as Hose Companies Nos. 
1 and 2. We have compiled new rules and regulations 
for the government of the department, which will be sub- 
mitted to the town for approval. A copy of which is 
herewith sent you. There have been several changes made 
in the department, which in our judgment will both add 
to its efficiency and decrease the running expenses. 

For the better protection of the outlying districts, we 
have equipped the old fuel wagon, at a very small expense, 



29 

as a Hose Wagon, and stationed it at Readville, and formed 
a company designated as Hose Company No. 3. Have also 
stationed the Hose Jumper at the Clarendon Hill district, 
and formed a company designated as Hose Company No. 4. 
We would respectfully urge the necessity of the town 
making an appropriation for building a suitable house for 
the use of each of the above-named Hose Carriages, which 
can be done at a small outlay. 

We would also state the urgent need of a suitable Fire 
Alarm system, as under the present style of giving an 
alarm, much valuable time is lost to the department by 
not knowing just the location of the fire. 

The small number of fires to which we have been called 
is a matter of congratulation to the Department, town and 
underwriters. The introduction of a plentiful supply of 
water for fire purposes will add greatly to the efficiency 
of our labor, and without egotism (with our department 
in its present state of equipment and high standard), we 
feel confident of our ability to successfully handle all fires 
which are liable to occur. Our thanks are due both to 
officers and members of the Department for their prompt- 
ness in executing all orders from the board. And we feel 
that our Fire Department is second to none, and a matter 
of pride to the town as well as to ourselves. 

Appended to this report you will find a list of officers 
and men attached to each company. Also a list of alarms 
and fires attended for the year. In conclusion, we would 
recommend the sale of one Steam Fire Engine. 
Respectfully submitted, 

STEWART McKENZIE, 

Chief JEngineer. 

C. L. FARNSWORTH, 

JOHN BEATEY, 

EDWARD McKENNA, 

F. A. SWEET, 

Assistant Engineers.

EEPOET OF OVERSEERS OF THE POOR. 



To the Citizexs or Hyde Park : 

In submitting our report (before going into details), we 
would note the fact that, owing to the increase in the pop- 
ulation of the town, and other causes over which we have 
no control, the number of persons requiring aid during 
1885 is greatly in excess of the previous year. There 
being 606 more tramps lodged, or helped on their way; 3 
more persons fully, and -100 partially, supported ; making 
a total of 700 persons in excess of last year. 

Three generous gentlemen, who requested that their 
names should not be mentioned, donated a goodly amount 
of turkeys, tea, flour, pork and potatoes, for Thanksgiving 
and Christmas dinners for the poor, for which the recipients 
were very grateful. 

We would also acknowledge, with thanks, the receipt of 
several loads of wood from Mr. Henry Grew, the same 
being duly sent to needy families. 

We present a detailed report of the expenditures for the 
relief of the poor for the town year ending January 31, 
1886.

EEPOETS OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE 

AND 

SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

FOK THE 

SCHOOL YEAR ENDING DECEMBER 31, 1885. 



To the Citizens of Hyde Park : — 

The vote of the town calling upon the School Committee 
to elect a Superintendent of Schools, has received prompt 
and careful attention. After an extensive correspondence, 
advertising, personal interviews, and visits, the final choice 
fixed upon Mr. David Bentley as the gentleman most likely 
to advance the cause of education in our community. 

As the work for the school year ending at the summer 
vacation, was laid out fully, and in detail, so that any 
changes in system would have introduced confusion, and 
interfered with the promotions for the year, Mr. Bentley 
was invited to commence his work during the summer vaca- 
tion in season to arrange for the new year. 

It has been the wish and policy of the Committee to 
respect the suggestions and further the plans of the Super- 
intendent. We ask your careful attention to his report, 
presented herewith. 

Andrew Washburn, Chairman, 
Charles G. Chick, Secretary, 
Henry S. Bunton, 
George M. Fellows, 
Richard M. Johnson, 
Benjamin C. Vose. 



To the School Committee of Hyde Park: 

Gentlemen, — The following report of the schools which 
you have placed in my care is respectfully submitted. 

I entered upon my duties about the middle of last August, 



100 

consequently this report will cover a period of four months 
of school work. 

My first work was the preparation of questions and con- 
ducting the examination of candidates applying for positions 
as teachers in our schools. This examination was held 
August 22d. Seven out of the eighteen applicants present 
successfully passed this examination, and their names have 
been added to your approved list of candidates. Two of 
these are now teaching in our schools, and appear to be 
doing good service. It may be interesting to note that six 
out of the seven young ladies who passed this examination 
were graduates either from the two or four years' course of 
our State Normal Schools. 

No one thing connected with the administration of our 
schools is of more vital importance to their welfare than the 
selection of teachers. It is a common remark, but never- 
theless a true one, that "as is the teacher so is the school." 
Given, a good teacher — result, a good school. Failures 
rarely result from lack of the necessary literary attainments, 
but generally either from inability to control the school or 
to impart instruction in such a way as to interest and im- 
press the pupil. The existence of these qualities can only 
be proved by actual experience, hence the danger of employ- 
ing teachers without, at least, some practical knowledge of 
their work. It is possible a change in our present mode of 
selecting teachers, which would allow of a wider range of 
choice, misfit result to the advantage of our schools. Not all 
good teachers are inclined to respond to an advertised 
examination. The plan of visiting teachers in their schools 
in order to observe their methods of instruction and disci- 
pline, to notice the apparent relations between teacher and 
pupils, together with their professional record, ought to 
lorm an essential part of any system of selection. 

Teaching is a profession, and demands on the part of 
those who enter it special preparation. The time was when 
even people of intelligence considered that almost any one 
with a fair amount of muscle and pluck could keep school, 
but fortunately times have changed, and the demand now is 
for trained and skilled workmen. Our State Normal Schools 
are doing a most valuable work in the direction of supplying 
this demand. Yet not every man or woman specially trained 
is a success in his profession. There is such a thing as nat- 



101 



ural aptness for a given line of work, and this the teacher 
needs in large measure. His work requires a ready and 
hearty sympathy with child life, the power to wisely control 
and direct the rash and impulsive natures under his care. 
The teacher, in common with all other professional men, 
must be a student. This is t an essential element of perma- 
nent success. He has to do with mind. Its laws of devel- 
opment should be understood as the underlying principles of 
all true teaching. 

Here I wish to suggest the great desirability of establish- 
ing, under the control of the School Committee, a Teacher*? 
Library. Only a small sum of money would be neces- 
sary for a beginning, to be supplemented by donations 
from time to time. But few teachers can afford to purchase 
all the books they need in their professional reading. These 
books should be of acknowledged merit, embracing the stan- 
dard works on the theory and practice of teaching and 
related subjects. Such reading would be of special value 
to our younger teachers in giving them a more intelligent 
comprehension of their work in its relation to the formation 
of character and good citizenship. 

Educational theories are abundant, and the temptation to 
turn aside from methods which have been tried and proved 
good is often very strong. While, on the one hand, a wise 
conservatism is to be commended, still the tear of change 
should not lead us to close our eyes to what is good and 
desirable in the new. Progress is the motto of our age, and 
we believe it is a real progress. Our schools have kept step 
with it, and have largely contributed to it. The schools of 
to-day are very unlike those of fifty years ago. There is 
more of intelligent purpose in their management and better 
results secured. The graduates of our Grammar and High 
Schools stand far ahead of their fathers in point of prepara- 
tion for the practical duties of life. The people have never 
shown more interest or confidence in their schools than at 
the present time. 

During the short time I have been in your employ I have 
given special attention to the primary and grammar school. 
It is not my purpose to individualize persons or schools, but 
it is my desire to bear emphatic testimony to the faithfulness 
and general ability of the teachers. Schools are found to 
differ very much as teachers differ. I believe in according 



102 

to teachers the largest amount of liberty in methods of 
teaching and discipline consistent with the attainment of the 
desired objects. To become a servile imitator of somebody 
else is, in nine cases out often, to fail. In my report on the 
general subjects taught in our schools will be found sugges- 
tions embodying some of the results of my observations. 

I believe there is small reason for complaint in reference 
to the general subject of school discipline, but the subject is 
of such vital importance to the best interests of every com- 
munity, especially in the conduct of its schools, that I desire 
to quote the language of an experienced school superinten- 
dent in one of our neighboring towns. He says : "Discipline 
lies at the foundation of the teacher's success. By this I do 
not mean military precision in all the movements of the 
pupil ; but such discipline as is necessary to secure an or- 
derh* and quiet school, in which all can attend to their ow r n 
individual work without in any way interfering with or dis- 
turbing others. A quiet and orderly school indicates 
thoughtful and thorough work, w T hile a restless, lounging 
school will do careless work. Lax discipline saps the edu- 
cational structure at every point, while firm discipline tends 
to give strength to every part." 

I desire to call attention to needed improvements in the 
out-buildings and yards of some of our school houses. The 
introduction of water would not only be a great addition to 
the comfort and possibly to the health of the children, but 
might be so arranged as to be a means of safety in case of 
fire. 

I wish to emphasize the importance of the movement with 
reference to fire-escapes at the Grew School. 

FREE TEXT-BOOKS. 

All school material, such as books and general supplies, 
are purchased by the Superintendent and distributed from 
his office to the different schools upon the written orders of 
the Masters. These orders are placed on file and separate 
accounts opened with each school. The Masters also pre- 
serve a duplicate of these orders. 

The several teachers receive their supplies from the Mas- 
ter of the school, and keep an account with each scholar of 
the books loaned to him. Before distribution, the books are 
stamped as Town Property, numbered, and a label pasted 



103 

on the inside of the cover statins: the conditions on which 
the books are loaned, as follows : — 

1. This book is to be carefully used, and not marked or 
defaced. 

2. It is not to be taken from the school room without the 
consent of the teacher. 

3. If lost or injured, it is to be paid for by the pupil 
using it. 

By this simple method the teacher can easily tell who is 
responsible for the injury or loss of any book. 

Once a year, or oftener, these accounts are compared and 
properly adjusted. 

Amount paid for text-books and ordinary school supplies 
for 1885, $3,335 82. About $1,500 of this sum was for 
books and supplies purchased in 1884.

There are now in the High School of Hyde Park 103 pu- 
pils, classified as follows : — 

First Class . . . . . . 16 

Second "....... 15 

Third " 36 

Fourth •••"■■.. . . . . . 36 

Seven of the third class are pursuing the second year's 
Business Course, and seventeen of the fourth class the first 
year's Business Course. While this course is specially de- 
signed to aid those who cannot afford the time for the 
full four years' curriculum, still the superior advantages of 
the culture and training of the complete course should not 
be overlooked. Such a course may be a necessity, but it is 
a poor substitute for a thorough education. It pays to take 
time for ample preparation for the work of future years. 
The young man with a disciplined mind will in the end be 
more successful than his less cultured competitor. A suc- 
cessful business man of Boston in a recent address " On the 
Relations of the High School to a Business Life," says: "I 
see nothing in the High School curriculum, unless it be 
Greek or Geometry, which can be wisely dispensed with, if 
you seek to develop well the business side of a pupil ; but 
when you seek to develop harmoniously the whole intellec- 
tual powers of the student, as you ought always, each study 
is at once seen to be an essential part of the system." "He 
should possess sounder judgment, clearer perception, keener 
penetration and insight, more origiuality and self-reliance, 
with a higher idea of human life, and its duties and possi- 
bilities, as the result of a High School course of study and 
discipline." " In my judgment no young man who contem- 
plates a business life can afford to dispense with a High 
School course, provided it is within his reach." It is very 
desirable that as large a number as possible of the graduates 
of our grammar schools should avail themselves of the excel- 
lent advantages offered by our High School. 

EVENING SCHOOLS. 

In accordance with the experience and recommendation 
of the Evening School Committee of last year, only one 
school for the study of the elementary branches has been 
opened this year. This is held in the Damon School house, 



107 

and has been in session five evenings each week since 
November 30th, with the exception of the Christmas vaca- 
tion. Mr. Samuel W. Culver was chosen principal and Mr. 
W. R. Stockbridge assistant. During the month of Decem- 
ber the attendance was irregular, with quite a small average 
number of scholars, but since then the membership has been 
largely increased by a much older class of persons, who are 
regular in attendance, interested in their work, and are 
making good progress. The work of the teacher is almost 
wholly individual, very little classification can be secured, so 
that a small number of scholars will occupy the entire time 
of a teacher. The average attendance has been about 20. 
Such a school, if properly appreciated, would become a val- 
uable assistance to many whose early advantages for educa- 
tion have been limited. At present it is in the care of 
experienced teachers, who are interested in its success and 
who are doing all they can to extend its usefulness. As a 
means of supplementing the work of the day schools of the 
town it commends itself to our care and support. 

The Industrial Drawing School opened in the High School 
house November 30th, and has been in session three even- 
ings each week. It is taught by Mr. Killam, a citizen of 
the town and a practical draughtsman. About thirty young 
men have been in attendance, divided into three classes of 
Elementary, Mechanical and Architectural drawing, each 
class meeting once a week. The school has been a decided 
success, and offers a good opportunity for practical instruc- 
tion in these departments of drawing. 

MUSIC. 

Mr. Whittemore, the teacher of music in our public 
schools, reports to me as follows : 

"Since September, the work of the Special Teachers, has 
averaged nearly three days per week." 

"The Primary schools have received considerable attention 
as the results obtained in the higher grades depend very 
largely upon the kind of work done in the lower classes." 

"In the Grammar classes, more attention has been given 
to the reading of music, and several classes have received 
special instruction in their own rooms." 

"In the advanced music class of the High School, particu- 
lar attention is given to the practice of four-part-choruses 



108 

and without doubt good improvement will be shown at the 
end of the year." 

"That the best results in this branch may be obtained, it 
is essential that it should he fully recognized in all respects 
as one of the regular studies of the school course." 

ARITHMETIC. 

The results secured in this study are, on the whole, less 
satisfactory than in most others, although the largest amount 
of time is given to it. The power of abstract reasoning is 
among the latest faculties of the mind in its development, 
hence it is a mistake pushing this study in the early years of 
a child's school life. The work of the first two years should 
be mainly objective, illustrating the combination and separa- 
tion of numbers by the use of familiar objects. When this 
objective oral instruction is completed, pupils are prepared 
to use an elementary arithmetic with advantage. "The use 
of a text book the second year is not desirable, for more real 
knowledge of the subject can be gained by the oral objective 
method, and time saved for the more practical and, at this 
stage, the more important studies of reading, spelling and 
penmanship. A good motto in primary teaching is " make 
haste slowly," and this is specially true in the first years of 
the study of arithmetic. Time should be given to thor- 
oughly familiarize pupils with the four fundamental opera- 
tions in numbers, so that this work can be done with a fair 
degree of accuracy and rapidity. After this there remains 
the application of these rules to practical arithmetic. One 
valuable aid in giving to the pupil mental power, correct- 
ness and rapidity in results is the study of Intellectual 
Arithmetic, so called, and I am glad to say, that in our 
schools, it is receiving a good degree of attention. 

GEOGRAPHY. 

The formal study of this subject, in my judgment, should 
begin one year later, that is, in the ninth class. Before this 
the pupils are not able to read sufficiently well to understand 
the text, and the exercise becomes an attempt to read what 
is beyond their capacity. 

Our present course in geography covers a period of six 
years, two } T ears more than its relative importance demands. 
The purpose should be to give the child a knowledge of the 



109 

earth as his home. To make him acquainted with the gen- 
eral facts of the science, such as the contour and comparative 
size of continents and countries ; the location and direction 
of the great mountain and river systems ; of plains and 
oceans. The conditions upon which climate depends and 
its relation to the distribution of plant and animal life. 
An order of dependance should be observed, and facts classi- 
fied and presented according to that order. Our text-books 
are burdened with a large amount of unrelated facts which 
are of no general value, and, if learned, are almost imme- 
diately forgotten. The history and geography of a country 
are, in the nature of things, closely connected, and should be 
studied with reference to that relation. The essentials are 
what we desire, and not the unnecessary details. In the 
study of history, as of geography, there is the same danger 
of cramming the mind with isolated and hence unmeaning 
facts. 

What the student needs is a distinct and graphic picture 
of the principal events in the history of the country or nation 
studied, and, so far as possible, the causes which produced 
these results, together with a knowledge of some of the 
representative men who have given shape and character to 
the national life. 

LANGUAGE. 

I have noted with satisfaction, the general care exercised 
by our teachers, with regard to the oral forms of expression 
employed by their pupils. Constant watchfulness is neces- 
sary in this direction, in order that the correct use of lan- 
guage may become a habit of the mind. As soon as the 
child enters school his training in language begins. By the 
present method of teaching reading, children are taught to 
write on their slates from the very beginning of their work. 
This is of great service in teaching language, so that during 
the first year, the}^ are able to write correctly simple sen- 
tences. As they advance they are taught to reproduce short 
stories which have been read to them, or write descriptions 
of journeys they may have taken or places visited by them. 
The object is to give them facility of expression when using 
the pen or pencil. I believe for our lower classes a graded 
course in language lessons, having a connection with such 
studies as history, geography and physiology, together with 



110 

some special subjects, would be of great value not only as 
an exercise in language but for the information thus gained. 
With such a preparation the subject of technical grammar 
might well be left for the last two years of the grammar 
school course. 

READING. 

The mere pronunciation of words is not reading, but it is 
the act of the mind in getting ideas or thoughts from the 
written or printed page. The constant aim of the teacher 
should be to lead the pupil to get possession of the thought. 
This gained, the expression will follow naturally and easily. 
Indeed, one of the chief objects of oral reading is to give the 
teacher the means of knowing whether the thought of the 
piece is understood by the pupil. 

When a child enters school he is already in possession of 
quite a large vocabulary of words which he has acquired 
through the ear, but he has had no practice in associating 
the written word with the object which it represents. The 
work then to be done is to establish in the mind of the 
child a ready association between the written word and 
the object which that word represents. As far as possible 
the object, or at least its picture, is used. As fast as the 
words are taught they are embodied in very simple sen- 
tences. In this work the black board and the script form 
of the letters are employed for the first few months. The 
change from the script to the printed words of the book is 
attended with almost no trouble. 

A careful examination of the reading in our schools leads 
one to believe that more time should be given to the very 
simplest reading, so that the child may become familiar with 
new words as they are introduced. Ample drill on the 
Chart and in the Chart Primer should in all cases precede 
the use of the First Reader. The easier parts of several 
Readers are used for practice reading. This variety secures 
the attention of the child, gives him that drill he needs and 
tends to secure fluency in utterance, good expression, and 
avoids the very common fault of memorizing and rote read- 
ing. 

SPELLING. 

Proficiency in this study is secured mainly through the 



Ill 

eye, and not through the ear by the sound of the word. It 
is a reproduction of the mental picture of the word, hence 
the attention of the child is directed to the form of the word, 
so that he may be able with pen or pencil to reproduce that 
form. The practical use of spelling is that words may be 
written correctly, and hence it is taught mainly by writing 
the words. Occasional oral spelling gives variety and in- 
terest to the exercise. 

I believe our course of instruction should be so adjusted 
as to give more time for penmanship and drawing. So large 
a number of our people earn their living simply by skill in 
the mechanical use of the pen, good penmanship be- 
comes an important acquirement. The general educative 
value of drawing is now fully established, as well as 
its imperative necessity in relation to many of the important 
industries of life. 

The subject of Physiology and Hygiene is now systematic- 
ally taught in all our schools. In the Hi<rh School, and in 
the fifth and six classes of the Grammar, the instruction is 
given by the use of a text-book in the hands of the pupils. 
In the seventh and eighth classes the instruction is intended 
to be mainly oral, supplemented by the' use of a limited 
number of text-books used as readers. In the lower grades 
the work is wholly oral. 

This subject, in its ordinary limitation, is of the highest 
importance ; but now, when it has become a subject of care- 
ful and intelligent study in our schools, with special refer- 
ence to the effects of stimulants and narcotics upon the 
human body, its practical value is greatly enhanced. Our 
teachers report a very gratifying interest on the part of the 
pupils, and it is our sincere desire that the results may be 
the inculcation of intelligent and abiding convictions in the 
minds of the youth of our town which shall prove of the 
highest value to them. 

This somewhat imperfect review of the principal subjects 
taught in our primary and grammar schools suggests the de- 
sirability of a new course of study which shall be in some 
important respects a modification of our present course. It 
is only by an elimination of what is found to be unnecessary, 
and a retention of the essentials, that we can hope to make 
our teaching more practical and meet the increasing demands 
upon the time and energy of our teachers and pupils. 



112 

In closing, I desire to express my gratification for the cor- 
dial reception granted me by the teachers of the town, and 
to you, gentlemen of the School Committee, for your con- 
stant kindness and courtesy. 

DAVID BENTLEY.
