EEPORT OF THE SELECTMEN. 



Fellow Citizens of Hyde Park : 

Your Board of Selectmen have the honor to present here- 
with the twentieth animal report of the receipts and expen- 
ditures of the town by the various officials to whom you 
intrusted these duties for the year ending January 31, 1888. 

The funds committed to the care of this Board have been 
expended to the best of our ability, and in such a manner 
as we trust will meet with your approval. It is with much 
satisfaction that we refer you to the "statement in detail" 
of our expenditures for the year, showing, as we think it 
will, a balance unexpended to the credit of each and every 
appropriation that you intrusted to our charge. We are 
also pleased to be able to say, There are no outstanding 
bills or legal claims against the town for 1887, so far as we 
have any knowledge. All " pay-rolls" have been made up 
to this date, inclusive, and discharged. 

PERMANENT IMPROVEMENTS 

On our streets and sidewalks have been continued this year 
by constructing a concrete walk, with edgestones on one 
side of Water street, from Fairmount avenue to Bridge 
street, and on one side of Highland street from Fairmount 
avenue to Warren avenue ; also on Sunnyside street front- 
ing estate of Benjamin C. Vose, and on Gordon avenue 
fronting estate of Col. J. B. Bachelcler ; also on Webster 
street fronting estate of J. J. Enneking, and on Fairmount 
avenue from the bridge to Station street, with a crosswalk 
to the corner of Railroad avenue ; and, without edgestones, 
a concrete sidewalk with gutter combined has been con- 
structed on Fairmount avenue from Highland street to 



6 

Summit street. Brick sidewalks have been constructed on 
one side of Fairmount avenue from Beacon to Highland 
street, and on Highland street from Warren avenue to a 
point opposite Albion street ; on one side of Pond street 
from Fairmount avenue to Williams avenue ; also on north- 
erly side of Oak street and a part of Maple street to Fair- 
mount avenue, and on a part of one side of Pine street at 
corner of Maple street ; and curbing has been located on 
Hyde Park avenue (both sides) from Arlington street to 
West, and on easterly side from West street to Dell avenue. 
In all improvements of this nature it is important that 
edgestones and sidewalks should be placed at grade ; con- 
sequently a large amount of labor and material has been 
necessary in regrading the roadways to conform to that of 
the sidewalks so constructed, besides, in many instances, 
taking up and repaying the gutters, while in other cases, 
paving gutters anew has, of necessity, been a part of such 
improvement. All such work, as well as that on highways 
generally, has been done under the supervision of Mr. D. 
W. Phipps this year, the same as last. If the town should 
see fit to appropriate at all extensively for permanent im- 
provements another year, we trust that our successors will 
pardon the suggestion on the part of this Board that it be 
expended in part on Central Park avenue from Biver street 
to Walnut street, also on Hyde Park avenue, West street, 
Arlington street, East River street, and extend the Central 
avenue walk to Arlington street. 

We would also suggest for their consideration, and that 
of the town, the advisability of conducting the water from 
the gutters on Fairmount avenue at Highland and Pond 
streets in an underground drain to the river. 

HYDE PARK AVENUE. 

This thoroughfare, though still in an unfinished condi- 
tion, has been greatly improved at quite a large outlay of 



money during the past season, and while the work (so far 
as done) has met the hearty approval of nearly all citizens, 
and the travelling public as well, we have nevertheless met 
strenuous opposition. That, too, at a point where im- 
provement seemed to us most needed ; consequently at this 
place the great inconvenience (to put it mildly) which has 
been the cause of frequent complaint on the part of some of 
the abutters still exists. 

A natural "water basin" is not, in our estimation, a good 
place in which to build, buy or locate a habitation. But 
when people do so locate, and repairs and improvements on 
the highway becomes a necessity, such abutters should in 
some way harmonize their differences, do their part, and 
allow the town to do its part, without a threat of prosecu- 
tion or a claim for damages by any one. 

DANA AVENUE. 

The extension of this avenue irom Summit street to the 
Milton line (as decreed by the County Commissioners), has 
been roughly constructed to a grade. But where filling 
became necessary it will settle somewhat, and in the coming 
spring or summer will need to be brought up to grade again, 
the gutters formed, sidewalks made and all generally 
smoothed up and properly finished, when the County Com- 
missioners may be notified that said way is completed and 
subject to their inspection and approval. 

HIGHWAYS. 

The amount appropriated for repairs on highways, etc., 
has been expended principally in reconstructing the Fair- 
mount avenue bridge, repairing Summit street, Central Park 
avenue, and streets in the Readville district, together with 
other places where it was thought repairs were most needed, 
also for necessary work incident to the winter season. 
There are still many places on our highways where repairs 



are required to a greater or less extent, but as such were not 
considered at all dangerous we have preferred to leave them 
for future consideration rather than to exceed the means 
placed at our disposal. 

PLANK WALKS. 

Between three and four thousand feet of plank walks have 
been laid. Possibly more than actual necessitv required, 
but we are assured that these walks are fully appreciated 
by all who have occasion to use them. Besides the question 
of economy was taken into consideration, other suitable 
matarial being difficult to obtain, and the distance to haul it 
so great and expensive. 

ROAD MACHINE. 

A road machine or scraper has been purchased this year 
for the sum of $250, which has done good service and we 
think it a valuable acquisition to the highway department, 
especially for the purpose of repairing some of our outlying 
streets. In this connection we would recommend to the 
consideration of the town the advisability of providing a 
building, or some other suitable place where a sufficient 
quantity of sand may be stored during the summer and kept 
dry for use on icy sidewalks along our principal streets dur- 
ing the winter. 

We would also call to your notice the great increase of travel 
and consequent wear our main streets are sustaining year 
by year, as time advances, and suggest, (as a matter of 
economy) , that the town own and operate a "stone crusher," 
to the end that such of our streets may be more thoroughly 
and systematically repaired or rebuilt. We think that such 
a machine might be located where it could be operated to 
advantage in the winter in preparing material for such work 
to be done the following summer. 



BRIDGES. 

Neglected for years, extensive repairs on our bridges be- 
came an absolute necessity with us. Consequently "Fair- 
mount Avenue Bridge" has been most thoroughly rebuilt, 
all iron-work carefully scraped and painted and we think it 
now stronger, safer and more durable than ever before. 

"Central Park Avenue Bridge," (over Mother Brook,) 
has also been rebuilt. The centre span, or arch, which has 
been the cause of so much expense to the town, was re- 
moved, thereby giving an unobstructed course the entire 
width of the roadway. West River street bridge in the 
Readville district has been newly covered in a substantial 
manner, thus making all of our bridges (except a small one 
on Hyde Park avenue over Stony Brook) new or nearly so, 

INCIDENTALS. 

The appropropriation placed in charge of this Board for 
incidental expenditures has been heavily drawn upon during 
{he year in meeting the demands of your Board of Health. 
While in the discharge of their duty they have found it 
necessary to expend a sum largely in excess of any previous 
year, in fact, unprecedented in the history of our town, to 
defray which we had no means other than what this appro- 
priation afforded, nevertheless we have guarded it as closely 
as possible and are pleased to leave a handsome balance 
unexpended as a legacy to our successors. 

DEFICIENCY OF 1886. 

To such outstanding bills, claims &c, as came to us from 
last year, we have given our best efforts and where possible 
to settle them, we have endeavored to do so with a view to 
the best interests of the town and the satisfaction of all con- 
cerned. There are some however, that we have been un- 
able to adjust as yet. 



10 



LITIGATION. 

The town has been remarkably fortunate in avoiding; litio'a- 
tion from any cause whatever during the year. The policy of 
the Board has been conciliatory rather than oppressive. And 
to avoid any and all controversies of an unpleasant nature by 
reason of any slight, or apparent change of grade, while carry 
ing on the permanent improvements or other work during the 
past season, we had prepared, and adopted a blank ap- 
plication and release to the town, which all abutters on any 
street, where the construction of a sidewalk was contem- 
plated, were expected to sign, and in no case whatever, has 
there been the slightest claim made upon the town for dam- 
age to fence grounds, or otherwise, nor do we believe there 
will be. We earnestly recommend the adoption of this 
plan by our successors. 

POLICE DEPARTMENT. 

Considering the number employed in this department, 
the results are as satisfactory as could reasonably be expect- 
ed. Chief Jenney, with officers Fogg and Rooney have been 
active and zealous in the discharge of their duty, and gener- 
ally well satisfied with their success. It must be borne in 
mind however, that officers who are painstaking and faithful 
and finally successful in their efforts, have every reason to 
feel that they should be fully sustained, not only by their 
superiors, but by all law-abiding citizens. 

STREET LIGHTS. 

$4,000.00 being the appropriation made for lighting 
our streets, it was clearly our duty to curtail in some 
form, if we would go through the year, keeping within 
the means provided. Therefore the gas service was 
discontinued and the oil lights alone have been used, 
being unable to maintain both systems with the money 
appropriated. Besides, the subject of lighting the 



11 

streets by means of electricity came up for considera- 
tion, and the town voted to authorize us to contract for 
a term of years, "to light the streets of the town where 
now lighted," and for a sum not to exceed $4,000.00 ,per 
annum. The subsequent struggle relative to this matter, 
was ours for a time, until demonstrated (to our satisfaction 
at least) as an utter impossibility, (with any electric light 
that would be satisfactory,) for the sum above named. 
When at a subsequent meeting, and by a vote of the town, 
the whole subject of contracting for street lighting was 
placed in chai'ge of a committee, with power to contract for 
electric and other lights for a term of } T ears, the town ap- 
propriating $5,500.00 for that purpose. We cannot prop- 
erly speak of the protracted deliberations on the part of that 
committee ending about the middle of November last, at 
which time and under direction of the committee (as voted 
by the town) your Board of Selectmen, signed a contract 
made and entered into with the American Electric Manufac- 
turing Company, for a term of three years, to light not less 
than 300 nights each year from one-half hour after sunset 
until midnight, using 75 double arc electric lights of 2000 
candle power each for so doing, and for the sum of $70.00 
for each and every light per year. Inasmuch as a contract 
has been made for electric street lights only, there are 
numerous places on some of our streets where those lights 
do not reach ; consequently they are unprovided far, unless 
we continue the oil system to some extent, which we have 
thought it best to do, until such time as the town may 
further provide. 

DRINKING FOUNTAINS. 

During the tw T enty years of our existence as a town 
(except for the efforts of one or two public-spirited citi- 
zens) we have been wholly without a wayside watering 
place at any point within our limits where this great need 



12 

to man and beast could be supplied, and so pressing was 
the demand for this much needed improvement that we 
could do no less than give it every necessary encourage- 
ment. Therefore, as a beginning, the following correspond- 
ence took place : 

Hyde Park, Mass., 

June 10, 1887. 
Robert Bleakie, Esq., 

President Hyde Park Water Co. : 

Dear Sir, — The Board of Selectmen are contemplating the erec- 
tion of one or more drinking fountains (not to exceed three) in our 
town, and desire to know on what terms your company will agree 
to supply the same with water lor, say, about six months during 
each year. Will your company kindly consider this subject at your 
earliest convenience and communicate your decision to this Board? 
obliging 

Yours very truly, 

D. W. C. ROGERS. 

For Board of Selectmen. 

Hyde Park, June 13, 1887. 
To the Board of Selectmen : 

Gents, — In reply to your favor of tho 10th instant, I am directed 
to say that we will furnish drinking fountains as you suggest, not to 
exceed three in number, for, say, s x months in each year, free of 
charge for water until further reasonable notice, provided you will 
pay the cost of making all necessary connections with our main 
pipes, and also provided that the use of the water referred to shall 
be restricted to reasonable and prudent use. 
Yours respectfully, 

CHAS. F. ALLEN, Clerk, 
Hyde Park Water Co. 

This generous response on the part of the Hyde Park 
Water Co. was gratefully accepted on behalf of the town. 
Three fountains were purchased, one of which is located in 
Everett square, one on Milton street, near Sprague street, 
in Readville, and one at Clarendon Hills. 



13 



BRIDGE STREET. 



Claims have been made by owners and abuttors on this 
street for damage, alleging the taking of their land by the 
town last year, when constructing the bridge (or approaches 
thereto) over the Neponset river, and in order to ascertain 
if such was the case, (feeling that the town owned a strip of 
land forty feet in width for a highway and needed no more) 
we employed Mr. George L. Richardson, who made the 
original survey, plans, profile, &c, (and as we understand 
by which the street was accepted by the town,) to survey 
and locate the lines as then laid out. He has done so, driv- 
ing stakes, and otherwise marking the true location of the 
street at different points, according to a plan of 1869 on file, 
and states that the bridge is not on a parallel line with the 
street as laid out ; that the southeasterly corner is about four 
feet off the line, "up stream," that the southwesterly corner 
though to a less extent, is also off the line. The fences on, 
either side of the street, from the bridge to Walnut street,, 
are not in line, and that at the corner of Water street is 
nearly six feet (at one point) within the limits of the high- 
way. Consequently it now remains for the town to take 
such action as it may deem best, under the circumstances. 

EAST RIVER AND WEST STREETS. 

The construction of these streets under the decrees of the 
County Commissioners, (plans &c, now on file with the 
Town Clerk,) are matters for the early consideration of the 
incoming Board, also for the town to provide means therefor. 
A large quantity of stone will be required in the work on 
River street, which (to some extent); are already on the : 
ground, purchased and payed for. 

CENTRAL AVENUE. 

In widening this street last year adjoining lands lying - 
between Everett Square and Winthrop street were pur- - 



14 

chased, but on the opposite, or easterly corner of Winthrop 
street, the locating of the curbing by the town, and the re- 
moval of the abuttor's fence by some one, was all that was 
accomplished, and now, to continue the side line of the 
street fronting this estate as laid out at that time, some action 
on the part of the town is required. The present owner (as 
we understand) is willing to deed to the town the necessary 
land on the avenue provided the town will discontinue a 
portion of the two streets at the corner as contemplated by 
the survey of last year, and the curbing as already located, 
which action we would respectfully recommend. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. D. McAVOY, 
D. W. C. ROGERS, 
M. P. MORRELL, 

Selectmen and Surveyors of Highways. 
Hyde Park, Mass, Jan. 31, 1888. 



ZENAS ALLEN 



Died at his residence in this town on the twentieth day of 
May, 1887, at the age of 81 years 6 months and 16 days. 

Mr. Allen had been a resident of the town since its incor- 
poration in 1868, and was always held in the highest esteem 
by his associates and the people whom he served. He was 
a member of the first Board of Selectmen, Surveyors of 
Highways, Assessors and Overseers of the Poor of Hyde 
Park, and was faithful to every duty, conscientious, upright 
and true as a Christian man, citizen and public official.

EEPOET OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 



The Board of Health, in making their annual report, 
wish to congratulate the inhabitants of the town upon the 
geuerally healthy condition here during the past year. 
Only a comparatively small number of contagious diseases 
have been reported, and of these only five resulted fatally. 
The number of cases and resultant deaths, and comparison 
with those of last year, is shown in the following statement : 

For the year ending January 31, 1888, there have been 
reported to the Board the following cases of contagious 
diseases : Diphtheria, 20 cases, with 3 deaths ; scarlet 
fever, 39 cases, with no deaths; typhoid fever, 11 cases, 
with no deaths ; membranous croup, 2 cases, with 2 
deaths ; measles, 5 cases, with no deaths ; against diphthe- 
ria 5 cases, scarlet fever 10 cases, typhoid fever 3 cases 
(with 1 death) for the year 1886. 

The Board has been called upon to abate several nuis- 
ances, which, from various causes, had been growing worse 
every year, until they had become a serious danger to the 
health of the people living in their vicinity, and in fact to 
the whole town ; for had a contagious disease, caused by the 
accumulation of filth in these pest holes, started near them, 
it might have spread throughout the town. One of these 
unhealthy places — and perhaps the worst one in town — was 
caused, in part, by the stoppage of a drain on West street, 
leading from the low land lying between West and Arling- 
ton streets and East River and Elm streets. Upon receiv- 
ing a petition, signed by a large number of citizens living 
in the vicinity, praying for the abatement of this nuisance, 
a hearing was held by the Board, at which witnesses were 
examined, and certificates received from four physicians, a? 



25 

testifying to the extremely offensive and uiiu^al'/.:' :.'1ti rio- 
ter of the place. The Board then made a personal examin- 
ation, after which the low portion of this tract, lying near 
West street, was adjudged injurious to the public health 
and a dangerous nuisance. The Board caused the drain to 
be opened and repaired in a thorough manner, thus drain- 
ing the pool of slimy water and leaving the land dry. It is 
believed the improvement will be permanent and save much 
sickness. The cost to the town for doing this work was 
about $300. 

Another place upon which a hearing was held by the 
Board, on petition, was a pool of stagnant, slimy water, back 
of No. 27 Pierce street, and near Leslie's mill. This place 
was in like manner investigated and adjudged unhealthy. 
By order of the Board a drain was dug, drainpipe laid, and 
the nuisance abated. The cost of doing this was assessed 
entirely on the abutters, the town not being obliged to 
bear any portion of the expense. 

A number of other similar petitions were received, and 
hearings thereon were held, but in no case at any expense 
to the town, except for legal advice, surveys, and serving 
notices. A very large number of other complaints have 
been made to the Board during the year. In all cases a 
personal investigation has been made, and when nuisances 
were found existing they were promptly abated. 

The usual amount of incidental expenses have been in- 
curred during the year. 

The Board has discouraged the keeping of swine when it 
could consistently do so, and comparatively few permits 
have been granted. There have been many calls upon the 
Board to remove swill. We have again tried the experi- 
ment of having it removed for its value by different parties, 
each being assigned a prescribed section, but it has been 
only partially successful. The best course would seem + > 



26 

be for the town to remove and sell the swill, covering the 
expense as far as possible from the proceeds of the sales. 

We have been called upon to examine a number of wet 
cellars. We believe all such should be cemented. In the 
absence of a system of drainage, it is the only safeguard 
against sickness. No ashes, garbage, or dirt of any kind, 
should be allowed to remain in any cellar during the sum- 
mer months ; and pure air should be allowed to circulate 
through the cellar at all seasons, in pleasant weather. Our 
experience teaches us that many cases of sickness might be 
avoided if the above suggestions were strictly complied with 
by owners and tenants of houses. 

The Board, in this connection, wish, in the most earnest 
manner, to urge upon the attention of the people of this 
town the necessity of an early and serious consideration of 
the question of a system of sewerage. They believe it to be 
of more importance than any other improvement that can 
be made, inasmuch as the health of the people of the town, 
in a large measure, depends upon it. It is hoped that it 
will be given immediate and earnest thought, and that 
prompt and decisive action will be taken. 

The following regulations were adopted by the Board at 
the commencement ot the year : 

Public Statutes, Chapter 80, Section 18.— The Board of Health of 
a town shall make such regulations as it judges necessary for the 
public health and safety, respecting nuisances, sources of filth and 
causes of sickness within its town. Whoever violates any such reg- 
ulation shall forfeit a sum not exceeding one hundred dollars. 

In accordance with the foregoing provision of law, this Board 
adopts the following regulations, which will strictly be enforced : — 

Regulation 1.— No person will be permited to keep any swine 
within the limits of the town of Hyde Park without a written permit 
from the Board of Health. 

Regulation 2.— No person shall place, or cause to be placed, or 
by any means empty, or caused to be emptied, any sewage, the drain- 
age of any sink or stable, or the contents of any cesspool or privy 



27 

well or other noxious or filthy matter, in or upon any public street or 
way of this town. 

Regulation 3.— No person shall remove, or carry in or through 
any of the streets, lanes or avenues, places or alleys, within the town 
of Hyde Park, the contents of any cesspool, vault, privy, or privy 
well, swill or house offal, (either animal or vegetable,) or grease, or 
bones, unless a permit be granted by the Board of Health upon such 
terms and conditions as said Board may deem necessary. 

Regulation 4.— No person shall bury the contents of any cesspool, 
vault, privy or privy well within the limits of the town of Hyde Park 
unless a permit be granted by the Board of Health. 

Public Statutes, Chapter 80, Section 79. — When a physician 
knows that a person whom he is called to visit is infected with small 
pox, or any other disease dangerous to the public health, he shall im- 
mediately give notice thereof to the Selectmen or Board of Health of 
the town ; and if he refuses or neglects to give such notice, he shall 
forfeit for each offence not less than fifty nor more than one hundred 
dollars. 

Regulation 5. — The following diseases are considered contagious 
and dangerons to the public health:— Small Pox, Diphtheria, Scarlet 
Fever, and Typhoid Fever. 

The Board of Health earnestly requests that no swill or vegetable 
matter be deposited in vaults, as such disposition of it is a very fruit- 
ful source of disease. 

The Board of Health intends, by personal supervision, to see that 
the above regulations are carried out, and desires the inhabitants of 
Hyde Park to assist in the work of frequently cleaning out their cess- 
pools and vaults, and removing all noxious and offensive matter 
from their premises. 

In conclusion, the Board recommend the town to make a 
separate appropriation for the use of the Board of Health, 
to be drawn on its order. This would save much perplexity 
and annoyance to other town officers, and largely increase 
the efficiency and promptness of the Board's acts. 
Respectfully submitted, 

GEORGE F. DOWNES, Chairman ; 
W. O. HURD, M. D., Secretary; 
E. H. BAXTER, M. D., 

Board of Health.

REPOKT OF TBUSTEES OF PUBLIC LIBBABY. 



At the time of our last report the Library was closed, 
awaiting the completion of the alterations which were being 
made in the building to render it perfectly safe for occu- 
pancy. These required a longer time than we then thought 
would be needed and, as a consequence, it was not until 
the eleventh clay of April that the Library was re-opened 
to the public. Therefore the statistics given in this report 
will cover a period of only nine and one-half month's actual 
working time. 

During this period the circulation has been 20,831 books, 
a monthly average of 2 , 3 J 4 ; new cards have been issued to 
the number of 309 ; fines collected to the amount of $22.53 ; 
227 books bound and re-bound, and upwards of 1000 
covered and re-covered. The number of books has been 
increased 548 by purchase and 51 by gift, including 18 
pamphlets. The list of magazines has been enlarged by 
adding the "New Scribner's" ; the newspapers remain the 
same as at the last report. The average monthly use of 
magazines in the reading room was about 120 and of other 
books about 60. The superior attractions of the gymna- 
sium, and the games, in the Y. M. C. A. building next 
door have drawn away many who formerly frequented the 
Library reading room. Under certain conditions the maga- 
zines may be taken out for perusal at home. 

The gallery has been extended at a slight cost so as now 
to make available all of the shelf-room. 

The present value of the Library fund is $4,924.36. 
Peculiar facilities are given by the rules and regulations 
for the use of Library books by the public school scholars 



32 

in connection with their school work, and seem to be freely 
utilized. 

We alluded in our last report to the desirability of a new 
catalogue. No action in reference thereto having been 
since taken by the town, and the number of books not 
included in the catalogue being quite large, we decided to 
have all these compiled in one supplement. This has been 
done and the result is already before the patrons of the 
library. It is a handsome and substantial pamphlet of 44 
pages, containing the titles of 3600 books, entered under 
their titles, the authors, and, many of them, under subjects. 
This, with the original catalogue (of 1881), gives a com- 
plete list of all books in the library up to its date, about 
9300 in all. The cost of this supplement has been about 
$275, of which $229 has been paid from the library fund. 
The sum taken from the fund we shall consider as a tempo- 
rary loan to be repaid from money which will be received 
from sales of the supplement. For w T e feel it to be our 
duty, and for the interest of the public, to follow the exam- 
ple of our predecessors and keep intact the fund, which, by 
the accretions of interest, is yearly growing in amount and 
will, ere long, constitute a substantial nucleus for a building 
fund, which we trust will be made up by a suitable appro- 
priation by the town and voluntary contributions of public 
spirited citizens of pecuniary ability, and devoted to the 
erection of a building which shall be a credit and an orna- 
ment to the town and a fitting receptacle for the treasures 
of our very desirable and valuable Library. We think that 
many of our citizens fail to recognize fully the excellence of 
the Library and to realize the surprised commendations 
which it has received from out of town visitors of acknow- 
ledged literary ability. 

The price which we have fixed upon the supplement is 15 
cents, which will not repay the cost of its production and 
which we are convinced will work no hardship to any 



33 

patron of the Library. Upon inquiry, we have found that 
the Boston Library, as well as almost all of the town 
libraries, impose a price upon their catalogues, not only 
thus to obtain repayment for their cost, but from the con- 
viction that what costs nothing is usually treated as worth 
nothing. 

As we know that the Library is capable of doing a vast 
amount of good to the residents of Hyde Park and as we de- 
sire that it shall not be debarred in any way or by any cause 
from doing all possible, we earnestly invite all visitors to 
the Library to mention to us any lack of facilities which 
they may observe, and to make any suggestions tending to 
promote its usefulness and efficiency.

ENGINEERS' REPORT. 



To the Board of Selectmen : 

Gentlemen, — Herewith we present our report for the 
year ending Januayy 31st, 1888. It is with great pleasure 
that we call your attention to the high state of efficienc}' in 
which our Department stands, and we can truly say that 
each and every man has done his duty in a satisfactory man- 
ner to the Board of Engineers. 

The apparatus belonging to the t( wn is as follows : 

2 Steam Fire Engines. 
1 Chemical Engine. 

1 Hook and Ladder Truck. 

2 Hose Carriages. 
1 Hose Wagon. 

4 Sets of Swinging Harness. 

1 Single Harness. 

4.000 feet of Cotton Hose in fair condition. 

300 feet of Cotton and Rubber Hose for Chemical Engine. 

3 Relief Valves. 

2 Shut-off Nozzles, together with the requisite number of 

Play Pipes, Wrenches, Bursting Strape, Hose Lines, 
Lanterns, dec, &c. 

The partial addition of the fire alarm system, which was 
added to the Department last year, has been a great help to 
the Department thus far, and when perfected Iry the addi- 
tion of a tower striker on the bell of the Methodist church, 
and five street boxes, cannot fail to prove valuable to the 
best interest of the town. We recommend the location of a 
street box at the Mattapan Mills, one at or near the Hair 
Factory, one at or near the Cotton Mill, one at or near the 



o 7 

corner of Dana avenue and Loring street, and one at or 
near the shops of the American Tool and Machine Co. 

Additions have been made during the year to the fire 
alarm system as follows : One street box, located in Ever- 
ett square ; one tapper in Engineer's house, and one mile of 
wire. We have added a bell tower and bell to the Read- 
ville Hose House, which is a great benefit to that section of 
the town. 

We recommend the sale of the two steamers and the pur- 
chase by the town of a second-class steamer. 

As there is no water supply in case of fire at "Corrigan- 
ville," we hope that the hydrant voted by the town will be 
placed in condition for service as soon as possible. 

The Engine House is in great need of repair, and we 
recommend an appropriation for the same. 

Appended is a list of the officers, with the number of men 
in the Department ; also a list of alarms and fires for for 
the year, with insurance and loss.

Chief Engineer.

be opened at seven o'clock a.m., and the polls shall be kept open 
until sunset. 

A town meeting shall also be held annually between the first 
Monday of March and the first Monday of April, for appropriating 
such sums of money as may be necessary for town purposes, and for 
transacting such other business as may legally be brought before 
said meeting. 

RULES FOR THE GOVERNMENT OF TOWN MEETINGS.

volving the expenditure of money, shall be in writing, when so 
required by any legal voter. 

2. — No vote fixing the period for closing a ballot shall be reconsid- 
ered after such ballot shall have commenced ; but it may be in order 
to extend the period without such reconsideration. 

3. — When a question is under debate, motions shall be received to 
adjourn, to lay on the table, the previous question, to postpone to a 
certain time, to postpone indefiniteby, to commit, or to amend ; which 
several motions shall have precedence in the order in which they are 
herein arranged. 

4. — The powers and duties of the presiding officer, not especially 
provided for by law, or by the foregoing rules, shall be determined 
by the rules of practice contained in "Cushing's Manual," so far as

It has been for many years the custom to present a re- 
port of the condition of each respective school prepared by 
the Sub-Committee in charge. This method has usually 
been followed, except in years when the report has been 
prepared by a Superintendent having charge of all the 
schools in town. 

This year it will be observed that no reports of Sub-Com- 
mittees appear, the committee having decided to omit them 
and cover all matters of interest in one general report. 
x It has been the policy of the Board to give all matters of 
importance to the schools careful consideration that good re- 
sults might be obtained and the school work carried forward 
with the least possible friction to all concerned ; care has also 
been taken that the cost to the taxpayers might be kept 



110 

at the lowest point consistent with desirable efficiency. 
Some matters which have received attention will be 
stated at length, while there are many others which it will 
be impossible to consider here. In the consideration and 
settlement of no question has there been a want of har- 
mony in the deliberations of the committee ; all have united 
in doing what seemed proper to keep the standard of our 
public schools as high as possible with the means at hand. 

SUPERVISION. 

One of the first matters to demand careful attention was 
the question of proper supervision. 

In August 1885 Mr. David Bentley was employed as su- 
perintendent of our schools and continued in that office until 
April 1st last. During the time of his employment the 
conlmittee entrusted to him the matters of examining teach- 
ers, visiting schools, conducting examinations of pupils, 
purchasing text books and supplies and other duties proper- 
ly pertaining to this office. At the town meeting tor appro- 
priations held in March, no money was provided for the sal- 
ary of a superintendent during this year. In view of this 
fact your committee did not feel warranted in the further em- 
ployment of Mr. Bentley, and he at once retired from the 
office. While in the service of the town Mr. Bentley had the 
welfare of its schools at heart and used his best efforts to 
make them efficient. With his retirement all matters of 
supervision at once devolved upon this committee. Our 
town being small in area and compact in population enables 
the schools to be well graded and accommodated in the four 
large buildings provided by the town for their use. This re- 
quires us to employ a master at each of these buildings and 
makes it possible to obtain constant and careful supervision 
• of all the schools without the expense attending the employ- 
ment of a person especially for that purpose. The masters 
in charge of the several schools are able, experienced and 



Ill 

fully devoted to their work. They have been in their re- 
spective positions for many years and know the working of 
the course fully, and they have the assistance of a faithful 
corps of teachers. All try to secure uniformity of work 
throughout the schools of the town. At the request of the 
committee these gentlemen meet each month and consider 
the especial wants of the schools, they map out the work of 
the prescribed course to be performed during the month 
ensuing. 

At these meetings methods are discussed and compared, 
and the work of each grade considered. The conclusions 
reached at these meetings are submitted to this committee 
at the regular meeting held next thereafter, and such action 
taken as seems to be for the best. The masters have also 
been given power to hold a meeting ot all the teachers one 
afternoon at the beginning of each term for a full discussron 
of the work of the term. This plan supplementing the vis- 
its and inspection required of the committee is giving good 
satisfaction. The masters and teachers feel a greater de- 
gree of interest in the results as they have a voice in plan- 
ning the work, 

TEACHERS' EXAMINATIONS. 

One of the most, if not the most important duty devolv- 
ing upon a school committee is in the selection of teachers. 

If good teachers are not secured the schools are weaken- 
ed at the point where the most strength is needed. All oth- 
er elements for a successful school may be of the best, yet 
the results will be indiiferent if the instruction be entrusted 
to weak teachers. At the annual examination held in Au- 
gust, but few applicants were present and several of these 
failed to pass the tests acceptably. When the vacancies oc- 
curred in the Grew School it was found that the list of avail- 
able teachers had become so reduced that it was necessary 
to hold another examination. This was held in October and 



112 

especial efforts made to give notice ; about forty ladies took 
this examination and a large per cent, of them were accept- 
ed, and. placed upon the list. Many of these ladies were 
graduates from Normal schools and teachers of experience. 
It is safe to say that it has been a long time since so many 
teachers of ability and experience have taken the examina- 
tion here. It seems now that we have a list from which it 
will be possible to fill any vacancies that may occur in the 
near future with good teachers. 

TEACHERS. 

It is a well known fact that we are often called to part 
with able teachers ; this year -has been no exception in this 
particular. Causes exist which contribute to this result 
which have been so often stated that it seems unnecessary 
to here state them at length. Briefly they are our inability 
to compete with neighboring cities in the matter of salaries, 
and the resignation of lady teachers to assume marriage rela- 
tions. From the first cause we have lost during the year 
Misses Foster, Halden, and Colcord at the Grew School 
and from the second, Miss Sears at the Damon and Miss 
Darling at the Grew School. Miss Brainard's health be- 
coming somewhat impaired, she resigned her position at 
the Grew School early in the year. The town has lost by 
these resignations faithful and painstaking teachers. 

At the High School Mr. S. W. Culver resigned his posi- 
tion as assistant teacher in June. 

The loss of so many valuable teachers was unfortunate 
and placed much responsibility upon the committees in 
charge, and especially was this so at the Grew. By reason 
of a change in the schedule of salaries this sub-committee was 
enabled to induce Miss Farnsworth to resign her position in 
Somerville and return to the service of our town. The ex- 
cellent record of this lady as a teacher at the Greenwood 
School in former years renders comment here unnecessary. 



113 

Other vacancies at the Grew were filled by the appointment 
of Misses Gushee, Edson and Sheldon. The work of these 
ladies thus far gives promise that the duty of the local com- 
mittee has been judiciously performed. 

At the Greenwood school no vacancies have occurred, 
but when the VI class was assigned to a separate room, Miss 
Perry was placed in charge and all other teachers above the 
XI grade were promoted one grade, and Miss Wood of the 
Butler School was transferred and placed in charge of the 
X grade, Miss Gidney being placed in charge of the Butler 
School. 

At the Damon School, Mrs. Pettee, a former teacher in 
this school was employed in place of Miss Sears. At the 
Fairmount School no vacancies have occurred, and the 
work of the school has progressed under favorable circum- 
stances. 

The sub committee of the High School after an examina- 
tion of many applicants, appointed Mr. Emerson Rice, a 
graduate of Dartmouth College, to till the position left va- 
cant by Mr. Culver ; his work in the school is entirely satis- 
factory and thus far proves the wisdom of his selection. The 
real success of our schools must largely depend upon the 
merits of the teachers employed. If proper caution is used 
in the selection of instructors and they are furnished with 
good accommodations and facilities for their work there need 
be no anxiety as to results, and especially so if they receive 
the proper moral support and encouragement from the pa- 
trons of the schools. 

SALARIES. 

As has already been said neighboring cities are able to 
offer higher salaries to teachers than we are warranted in 
paying. In consequence of this we have from time to time 
lost many of our best teachers ; sometimes this has occurred 



114 

where an advance of $50 per year would have retained in 
our employ valuable teachers. The strong teachers in the 
higher grades are usually taken, and therefore our loss is 
more serious. To guard against this evil your committee 
in August last adopted a new schedule of salaries whereby 
teachers thereafter employed in the XII grades begin at 
$375, per year and advance $25 each year until a maximum 
of $450 is reached in the fourth year. The XI and X 
grades begin at $350 and are advanced in like manner till a 
maximum of $400 is reached in the third year. The IX 
and VIII grades begin at $400 and are advanced as hereto- 
fore to a maximum of $450 in the third year. The VII 
grades begin at $425 and advance to a maximun of $500, in 
the fourth year. The VI class begins at $475 and advance 
to a maximum of $500, in tbe second year. The masters' 
salaries have been advanced from $1,200 to $1,300 
per year. The pay of the teachers at the High School re- 
main as heretofore. By a vote af the committee the new 
schedule does not operate to reduce the salary of any teach- 
er in the employ of the town when it was adopted. This 
change in the schedule has made but a small increase in the 
monthly pay roll. It is hoped this change will enable the 
town to better retain its best teachers in the higher grades. 
All grades are important, but it is more difficult to secure 
competent teachers for the VI and VII grades than for the 
X( and X grades, the element of discipline being an impor- 
tant factor in grades composed of older pupils. 

The XII being composed of the youngest children just en- 
tering school, it is very difficult to obtain proper teachers. 
The methods of instruction must largely originate with the 
teacher and be of a simple and interesting kind. A great 
degree of care must also be exercised as to the comfort an^ 
health of the little ones. In view of these things the pay 
has been fixed as above. 



115 

GRADING. 

The number of pupils in the V. and VI classes having in- 
creased to such an extent that they cannot be well accommo- 
dated in the masters' rooms, the VI classes have been placed 
in charge of lady teachers and assigned to separate rooms. 
The Damon School is an exception, as there the V, VI, and 
VII classes occupy the master's room for study and general 
exercises and use an unoccupied room for a part of the reci- 
tations. Mr. Cross has the assistance of Mrs. Senancour. 

At the Grew School the number of pupils of the VI class 
being large, it was found necessary in September to place a 
part of this class in the master's 100m and Miss Noble was 
employed to assist Mr. Dean. 

HIGH SCHOOL. 

This school is now in good condition although it has suf- 
fered some inconvenience by the presence of a portion of the 
Greenwood School, yet no serious interruption of the work 
has occurred. The old steps leading to the building have 
been replaced with new ones, built in a thorough manner. 
The grounds have been graded to some extent and a new 
fence built along the front of the premises. The number of 
pupils increase from year to year, but unfortunately the 
building occupied does not expand in like porportion. The 
work of the school would be much improved if in possession 
of a larger building equipped with a good laboratory and 
other facilities for the work of the course. Should the num- 
ber of students continue to increase, a new building will 
soon be necessary. 

ACCOMMODATIONS. 

The burning of the Greenwood school building in July 
last, seriously interfered with the work of that school for 
this year. The old building contained eight rooms and dur- 
ing the summer vacation the eighth room was furnished 



116 

for the use of the sixth class at the beginning of the school 
year in September. The destruction of this building made 
it incumbent upon the committee to provide for about 350 
pupils elsewhere. The local committee after much investi- 
gation and time spent in trying to secure rooms which would 
suitably accommodate these pupils, decided to adopt the 
plan of allowing them but one session of about four hours 
each day, and arrangements were made with the sub-commit- 
tee of the High school, so that the High school building to- 
gether with the little Everett building might be used. In 
obtaining rooms many things in connection with the comfort 
and safety of the children had to be considered. Several 
places were suggested for schools but upon examination they 
would be objectionable from want of sanitary arrangements 
or from want of a safe place for out-of-door exercise. As 
the plan above named secured these, as well as all facilities 
for the school work, the Board ratified the one-session plan 
and the use of the buildings suggested. The situation was 

o Co 

a difficult one ; some inconvenience must arise from what- 
ever plan was adopted. 

The teachers of both the High and Greenwood Schools ac- 
cepted the situation in the proper spirit and the work of the 
Greenwood School has been all that could be expected. 

The Committee would here express their appreciation o* 
the commendable spirit of patience and courtesy which the 
parents and pupils of the Greenwood district have accepted 
the situation, all seeming determined to bear the calamity 
cheerfully and to make the best of a bad state of affairs. 

By the terms of the contract the new building is to be 
completed on April 1st, next, all indications now point to 
the occupation of the building by the school at the beginning 
of the spring term. The new building is to be equipped with 
apparatus for steam heating, speaking tubes, electric bells 
and other modern improvements. In this connection we 



117 

would say that after hearing and considering other proposi- 
tions it was the unanimous judgement of this committee to 
rebuild the Greenwood building upon the old site and this 
conclusion was ratified by the town without a dissenting vote. 
The number of pupils at the Fairmount building having 
increased beyond the capacity of the eight rooms of the 
building the Local Committee was empowered to arrange for 
a room in the hall. This room has been finished and furn- 
ished so that the building now has nine good school rooms. 
The one in the hall being arranged with sliding petitions so 
that the whole hall can be used when necessaiy. The build- 
ing has been repainted during the year and it is now in 
thorough repair. The Damon building will need repainting 
the coming year. When the new Greenwood building is 
completed the children of the town can be comfortably and 
conveniently provided with school facilities. 

COURSE OF STUDY. 

Some changes have been made, the most important being 
the replacing of the elementary grammer in the eighth grade 
for use in connection with the study of language. It seems 
well to retain in a system of education some things which 
will tend to develop careful studj' and train the pupils in the 
proper use of bocks. To devote a full year to the study of 
language in this grade from a system of oral lessons without 
any systematic use of the text book was not found to pro- 
duce the best results. 

TEXT BOOKS AND SUPPLIES. 

At the beginning of the year Mr. Fellows secretary of the 
Committee was made purchasing agent for the Board. Dur- 
ing the summer vacation, having in hand careful estimates 
of the wants of the respective schools for the coming school 
year, he ordered the required amounts to be delivered at the 
several buildings and placed in charge of the Masters for'use 



118 

when needed. Much time is saved by this plan as the schools 
can be supplied by the Masters as wants arise. 

During the summer vacation the Committee adopted the 
use of the new edition of Warren's geography in place of the 
edition previously in use. The new book is an improvement 
upon the old one and is appreciated by the teachers. 

In view of the books and supplies now on hand but little 
additional expense need be incurred in this particular dur- 
ing the balance of the school year. 

ATTENDANCE. 

The attendance has been well sustained, except that dur- 
ing the fall term many children were forced to be absent 
from the Grew and Damon Schools by reason ol sickness. 
So seriously did this cause interfere with these schools and 
in view of apprehended clanger to the children in attendance 
it was thought wise to close them for the two weeks' next 
before the Thanksgiving recess. 

The attendance of the the pupils of the Greenwood dis- 
trict has been all that could be expected, when the situation 
there is taken into consideration. 

We would refer to the tables at the end of this report for 
full information upon this head. 

TRUANCY. 

Under the systematic attention of Truant Office Conlan, a 
marked improvement in this matter is apparent. A diffi- 
culty in the past has arisen from the fact that the officers 
appointed could ill afford to take their time when needed 
for this duty. The matter now receives prompt attention 
whenever occasion demands. 

The pay of truant officers was fixed by the Board at 25 
cents per hour of actual duty. 

EVENING SCHOOLS. 

Teachers, Mr. Emerson Rice and Miss Marv J- Eoome. 



119 

The school opened in the Grew School building on the 
19th of December last with about 60 pupils in attendance, 
but as usual the number has fallen to about twenty regular 
attendants at present. The work of the" school for those 
who have attended has been satisfactory. It is to be regret- 
ted that a large number of the young men and women who 
are employed during the day in other pursuits do not pat- 
ronize these schools. As has been said in years before, 
the citizens are generous in their support of Evening 
Schools, and that large numbers are not benefited by these 
schools is in no way the fault of the town. We fear 
parents and guardians of children unable to attend day 
schools do not properly interest themselves that the children 
under their charge attend these schools. We earnestly 
hope for future improvement so far as attendance is con- 
cerned. 

MECHANICAL DRAWING. 

A school for instruction in this subject, in charge of Mr. 
H. W. Killam, is open five evenings during the week, in 
the winter season, at the High School building. The at- 
tendance is not so large as could be desired. Those attend- 
ing are interested and are cloiiw s^ood work.

SCHOOL WORK. 

The matter of Reading has received much care and atten- 
tion. In the primary grades the children are instructed 
from charts and by the use of supplementary reading suited 
to each grade. Exercises in script reading are frequent and 
the children are drilled in phonetics that the articulation 
may be good. Sight reading is much practiced in the high- 
er grades and much attention given to the study of proper 
definitions of words and efforts so directed that the children 
may read understandingly. It seems almost impossible to 
secure a good volume of voice in the higher grades Much 
care is taken by the teachers in charge to secure this, but 
from some reason a large percent ot the pupils in the Gram- 
mar grades do not use voice enough to be heard with ease 
and pleasure. This is not peculiar to our own schools, but 
is a very general fault in many schools other than ours. 

In Arithmetic the object has been to obtain thoroughness 
in the work performed. The important subjects have re- 
ceived careful attention > the work of the course being so di- 
vided that the steps from grade to grade should be gradu- 
ally taken. 

In the lower grades the children have been required to 
master one underlying rule for each subject taken up, and 
to know its application. Much attention has been given to 
rapid mental and slate work. In this, practical problems 
have been used and mathematical puzzles have been avoided. 

In the lower grades much attention has been given to the 
multiplication tables, that the children may be familiar with 
the combinations of numbers before taking the work of the 
more advanced grades. 

Object lessons have been given to some extent and the 
schools have been supplied with measures of various kinds 
and the children taught their use in a practical manner. 
From actual use they learn the number of pecks in a 



122 

bushel and the number of feet in a yard. This method 
creates commendable interest in the pupils, especially so in 
the lower grades. 

In the study of Languages, two objects are accomplished. 
1st. to give systematic training* in the use of good English. 
2nd, to secure mental discipline that results from the study 
of grammar as the science of language. The methods 
have been to instruct the primary grades by frequent 
oral and written exercises of a kind to form a foundation 
for the better understanding of technical grammar. 

In the lower grammar grades the same system prevails 
with the addition of more definite preparations for the 
difficult work of the higher grades. The last three years 
of the course is devoted to the study of technical gram- 
mar with a view to developing the powers of the mind, 
that may enable it to comprehend the limits of a defini- 
tion, grasp a scientific principle, analyze, compare, dis- 
criminate and classify. The study of technical grammar 
affording one of the best means of exercising the powers 
of the mind, the time for its study has been extended 
rather than curtailed. 

Geography has received its proper attention, care has 
been given to the location of divisions and countries with 
due regard to the physical and climatic characteristics of 
each, the work being arranged to meet the capacity of 
the respective grades. It has been the endeavor to im- 
press the minds of the pupils with the character of each 
country socially, politically and physical!}', and to show the 
effect of the climate upon animal and vegetable life and 
especially upon the life and pursuits of man. Map draw- 
ing and map building are used to fix the physical features 
of states and countries, and the location of oceans, seas, 
bay, rivers, mountain systems, important cities and com- 
mercial centers. 



123 

The plan of the work in United Slates History is to 
devote the time of two lower grades where this subject is 
taught to the use of the text book, as a supplemental read- 
er, talking and writing much about the subjects read. 

In the V, VI and VII classes important dates and ac- 
counts of import events are carefully taught. In this con- 
nection maps are sketched and prominent historical places 
located. 

Careful attention is given to the morals of history, and 
lessons are conducted so that cause and effect may ap- 
pear, thus training the judgment in estimating the quali- 
ty and result of political action in order that the founda- 
tion for citizenship may be good. Historical topics are 
often made the subject of compositions and declamations. 

In Physiology it has been the aim to instruct the pupils so 
that a wood knowledge of the laws of health might be ob- 
tained, more prominence being given to this than other fea- 
tures. The prominent facts as to the structure of the body 
are taught and the effects of alcohol, tobacco and opium up- 
on the system are impressed upon the mind. The methods 
are by oral instruction and illustrations by the use of charts 
aud objects memorizing enough to make the technical teach- 
ing intelligible. In higher grades pupils are required to 
write descriptions of the parts of the body, explain their 
care and the effects of poisons upon them. 

In Spelling, efforts have been directed to secure the 
proper use as well as the correct spelling of words in all 
grades ; this is thought better than the spelling of many 
words without a knowledge of their use. In more advanced 
grades, where dictionaries are placed in the hands of pupils, 
root words and derivatives are taught, that pupils may learn 
the relation which different words have to each other. 

Writing and Drawing have received proper attention and 
good results have been obtained. 



124 

Music has been taught under the direction of Mr. Whit- 
ternore and his daughter, Miss Alary E. Whittemore, with 
the usual results. 

GENERAL REMARKS. 

The stability of our institutions depends so largely upon 
the intelligence and patriotism of the people that the pub- 
lic schools were early established for the proper education 
of the youth in matters deemed of prime importance to 
the well being of the state. From time to time branches 
of study have been added to the required course in keep- 
ing with the demands of the age and good citizenship. 
We hold it to be the duty of all citizens to see to it that 
the children receive the instruction required by the state, 
that the blessings of our government may be transmitted to 
coming generations without injury at our hands. 

Some children there are who from force of circumstances, 
are unable to attend the public schools long enough to cover 
the whole time allowed by the town for the completion of 
the full course, but there should be none who cannot take 
sufficient advantage of our school system to enable them to 
read, write and understand to some extent the other re- 
quired studies. 

There is much that might be said as to the character of 
the work to be expected from the public schools. There is 
often a tendency to look only at the average per cent obtain-' 
ed upon the examinations of the pupils and to judge of the 
efficiency of the school by what appears there. It is some- 
times thought that the knowledge of technical arithmetic, 
grammar and kindred subjects, obtained in the few years of 
our school course indicates the value of our school system, 
and it seems at times as if school authorities adopted 
courses of study and systems of promotion to this end, re- 
gardless of all other matters. .Some of the results of such ac- 
tion, are seen in children with constitutions impaired, ner- 



125 

vous systems prostrated, and it is often the case that child- 
ren loose much if not all of the benefits of the public schools 
because of such systems. 

In the present age where so much competition exists in 
business affairs that success depends largely upon the activ- 
ity and push of the citizen, and where the vital and nervous 
forces are heavily taxed by the individual in after life, great- 
care should be taken that the school children may not draw 
so heavily upon these forces as to find themselves at the 
close of the course, physically unable to secure to themselves 
the best results from their mental attainments. 

In all matters pertaining to the education of children, the 
object to be obtained should be kept well in view, — the 
training of citizens strong physically as well as mentally. 

A work of the schools which cannot be overlooked is in 
the moulding of character. Great care should be taken to 
impress the children with the value of correct habits, to im- 
press them with habits of honesty, of truthfulness, of tem- 
perance, of punctuality, of industry and of self-reliance, 
with a habit of thoughtful care in their relations to each other, 
and the duty of obedience to lawful authority. It is to these 
things we are to look for the character of our citizens in the 
future and should our schools fail in these matters enjoined 
by the laws of the Commonwealth, the result to the commu- 
nity would be serious. Let it not be lost to sight that the 
school is designed to train the boy to be a man, to accomp- 
lish this each element that is requisite to that end should re- 
ceive its proper attention, that we may have strong, broad- 
minded and intelligent citizens entering active life from our 
public schools. 

AVe want a broad system of education that can, and will, 
while giving the care to technical study requisite for acquir- 
ing mental strength, also protect the physical system and 
lay the foundation for citizens of manly habits. Upon such 



126 

citizens our free institutions may safely rest. For the train- 
ing of such citizens the people are taxed and it thus becomes 
the duty of all school officers and teachers to see that all 
these matters receive appropriate care. A school course 
which gives all of its time to the developement of one ele- 
ment with no proper care for the others, is faulty and does 
not develo pe the best type of men and women. 

It is not here contended that the present design of the 
public school is, to fit the boy for a special pursuit in life, 
the diversity of business callings makes that impossible. 
Much must be left to individual effort, but the foundation 
necessary alike for all classes is to be supplied at the pub- 
lic expense by the public schools. 

In the early years of life, habits of independent thought 
are to be formed, the reasoning powers developed and 
strengthened and methods of thoroughness impressed to the 
end, that when the child becomes a man he may for himself 
grapple successful with the duties of life. 

We cannot close this report without commencling the 
teachers in charge of our schools, for their faithful work dur- 
ing the year, and expressing our thanks to the citizens of 
the town for the prompt and generous manner with which 
the wants of the schools have been supplied.
