SELECTMEN'S REPORT. 



Fellow Citizens : 

There is nothing more pleasing to a public servant, when 
making a report of his action to those who have entrusted 
their interests to his keeping, than the consciousness that 
his work has been reasonably satisfactory to himself; and it 
is with this feeling that your selectmen here present to you 
a report of their doings for the past year, and hope that they 
will prove equally satisfactory to you. 

As your public servants we have endeavored to so con- 
duct our department that taxation would not be an excessive 
burden, and yet to watch so closely the necessities of the 
town that its best interests would neither be sacrificed nor 
endangered by a too economical policy. We feel that many 
of our citizens are with us in this ; there are others who de- 
sire to have a more extravagant policy followed and, as they 
express it, the town built up even though a debt is thereby 
created and left for the coming generation to pay. To such 
as entertain these extravagant thoughts we would say that 
the Legislature of our State has so framed the laws which 
govern us that future generations cannot be burdened with 
the payment for our luxuries or necessities, except in the 
the matters of sewerage and water. Money for these pur- 
poses can be borrowed for twenty and thirty years respec- 
tively, but for all other enterprises we can borrow for no 
longer a period than ten years, and we must provide for the 
payment of the money so borrowed in ten annual instal- 
ments. To illustrate, should we decide to borrow $100,000 
next year and expend it in attempting to gratify the fancied 



6 

needs of some of our citizens, the year following we would 
have to put into our tax levy $10,000 to pay one-tenth of 
the sura so borrowed and $4,000 more for interest on the 
same, thus making an increased burden of $14,000 to be 
met by direct taxation and paid by us and not by " future 
generations " ; and so on, every year until the whole sum 
borrowed and interest on it was fully paid ; or if the ex- 
pedient of a sinking fund was adopted, the whole sum and 
interest must still be met in ten years and the yearly burden 
upon our tax payers would be substantially the same. 

This beino- the case — and it is a condition of things created 
by the wisdom of our law-makers purposely to protect towns 
from extravagance and coming generations from the debts 
of their predecessors — would it not be folly to let ourselves 
drift blindly into a condition similar to, or even worse than 
that from which we have but recently emerged, and which 
could gratify only the unthinking? 

STREETS AND SIDEWALKS. 

The work here, both in the way of permanent improve- 
ment and of ordinary repairs, has been done under the su- 
pervision of a superintendent, and the benefits of a well 
equipped street department, to which we alluded in our last 
report, are further emphasized by the results accomplished 
this year. If continued it will be only a few j'ears till all 
the streets in our town will be of a kind to satisfy the rea- 
sonable requirements of our citizens. It is to be hoped that 
the methods now adopted in building our highways, and 
found so satisfactory will be jealously watched and any de- 
parture therefrom promptly checked, so that money may 
never again be thrown away upon streets where a few rains 
will wash away every trace of the work done. 

The following tables show what has been done in the way 
of permanent improvements.

This statement shows that a good amount of work

400 loads, 
has 

been done considering the appropriation made for those 
purposes, and there still remains in the treasury $3,176.65 
of the highway appropriation ready for any emergency which 
the elements may bring upon us. We think that our citi- 
zens, having appropriated in the beginning of the year such 
sums as were represented to be sufficient for the needs of the 



various departments, have the right to expect all the town 
officials so to govern their expenditures that at all times 
they may have sufficient means at hand to meet ordinary 
emergencies without making special appeals to the town for 
more funds. 

Not unfrequently such appeals become necessary from the 
lack of that fore-thought due exercise of which would have 
prevented them — as, for instance, in the doing of work 
which, however desirable, might have been deferred easily 
to a later and more convenient time. 

It is as true in municipal as in personal matters that a 
little self-denial is at times necessary. 

In addition to the work done as permanent improvements 
we have kept up the ordinary repairs on the highways, 
among other things planking the bridges on Central Park 
avenue, West River street, and Bridge street, and two at 
Clarendon Hills.

ACTIONS AT LAW. 

In the annual report of the selectmen for last year it was 
stated that Mr. William J. Hayes of Dedham had brought 
suit against the town to recover two thousand dollars for 



9 

damages received from a telephone wire. The alleged injury 
to him occured on Central Park avenue near its junction with 
Oak street in the early part of 1889. It was further stated 
that a verdict had been rendered in favor of the town and 
that the case was then pending in the Supreme Court. 

The case was argued in that court on the plaintiff's excep- 
ceptions last March, and in the following May a decision 
was rendered sustaining the exceptions and ordering a new 
trial, on the ground that the Justice of the Superior Court 
erred in directing a verdict for the defendent. This case is 
reported in the New England Reporter, Vol. 27, page 522 ; 
and will be in either Vol. 153 or 154, Mass. Supreme 
Court Reports. 

This case was again reached for trial at the present Jan- 
uary sitting of the Superior Court at Dedham ; and, after a 
full trial, a verdict was again rendered for the town. 

The plaintiff has filed a motion for a new trial, claiming 
that this verdict is against the evidence, the weight of the 
evidence, and against the law, which motion has not yet been 
heard by the court. We expect the motion will be over- 
ruled. 

The petition brought by the Board of Selectmen of last 
year to prohibit the County Commissioners from making 
certain decrees in relation to Metropolitan avenue, and fully 
described in the last annual report, is still pending in the 
Supreme Court. 

It is now anticipated that the hearing on this petition will 
take place in the Supreme Court at Dedham in February. 

The petition by Maria A. Eustis against the town in the 
Superior Court on acconnt of betterment assessment on her 
property in consequence of the acceptance and construction 
of Warren avenue between Beacon street and Neponset 
river in 1888, and mentioned in the last annual report, has 
not been tried, and is still pending in said Court. 



10 

Mary Ann Hobart of this town gave us notice that on the 
13th day of April, 1891, she sustained personal injury by 
reason of a staple and ring inserted in and projecting above 
the surface of the curbstone and sidewalk in front of No. 6 
Fairniount avenue. On the 20th of August she brought 
suit against the town, wherein she alleged her damages in 
the sum of $3,000, which suit was on the trial list of the 
January sitting of the Superior Court at Dedham, but not 
having been reached for trial, it stands continued to the 
next May sitting of the Court. 

Mrs. Maiy A. Foster of this town notified us that on the 
2d day of March, 1891, while traveling on the sidewalk of 
Fairmount avenue, between the N. Y. & N. E. R. R., and 
the bridge over the Neponset river, she fell and sustained 
personal injuries. On the 19th of September she com- 
menced a suit in our Superior Court, claiming damages in 
the sum of $5,000 ; which suit is now on the trial list at 
Dedham, and will probably be tried at next May sitting. 

Mrs. Ira L. Benton alleged that she was injured on one 
of our public streets in March, 1890, and claimed damages 
from the town therefor. After careful investigation of all 
the circumstances, a compromise settlement was effected 
for the sum of $100. 

POLICE. 

This department has been carried on with the same force 
as during the previous year. In the report of the Chief 
will be found a statement of its doings in detail. 

In accordance with the practice of the past two years we 
present our estimate of appropriations necessary for the 
following year, the appropriations for the same purposes for 
the current year being shown in a parallel column.

Note. — The sum of $35,300 for schools is the same 
amount asked for and appropriated last year, leaving out 
the special appropriation of $2,500 for steam heating appa- 
ratus for Grew School. It will also be observed that we 
recommend an increase of $2,000 in the permanent im- 
provement appropriation. This we do with the further 
recommendation that from it a steam roller be purchased. 
We think such a purchase will be in the direct line of 
economical progress. A roller will cost about $4,000 ; but 
we believe that, with its use on the streets, almost as much 
can be done with the remaining $8,000 as was done last year 
with $10,000. 

If the appropriations for next year are made as above 



12 

suggested, we believe that every interest of the town can be 
well cared for and the tax levy further reduced to about $14 
per $1,000; thus continuing the good work of the previous 
two years in that direction, and verifying the prediction 
which we ventured to make in our report of January, 1890, 
when our tax rate was $16 per $1,000. This will be a con- 
dition that should be very gratifying when we consider that 
the payment of debts contracted years ago still loads us 
with a yearly burden of $20,000 in our tax levy, and it 
shows the splendid position in which a little forbearance 
will place us when, in 1895, we shall have paid oif nearly 
the last of our legacy of old debts.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 



The Board of health, in conformity with the requirements 
of the Public Statutes, herewith presents its report for the 
year 1891. 

In the performance of its duties, which have been numer- 
ous and extended, the board has endeavored to cause as 
little inconvenience to the citizens as was consistent with 
the preservation of health . 

The Board has met at regular times, and also have had 
meetings whenever it seemed necessary for the transaction 
of business. 

The Board would again repeat what was stated in the re- 
port of 1890, as regards cesspools, drains, and privy vaults, 
and add, that too great care cannot be had in keeping the 
same in a proper sanitary condition at all times of the year. 

If owners and occupants of dwelling houses and manufact- 
uring plants would observe the foregoing injunction, our 
town would be in a still better sanitary condition. However, 
it is gratifying to be able to state that the genera! health is 
so good as it is. Marked improvements in sanitary ap- 
pliances have been made by many of our citizens. 

There has been no epidemic of contagious nor infectuous 
diseases, and the geueral health has been good; and in 
comparison with other large cities and towns, Hyde Park 
holds a high rank. And the Board attributes the same, in 
a great degree, to the system of removing house garbage 
and swill. 

Early in the year the board decided to employ Frank 
Hukin and C. H. Crumett to collect swill and house garbage 



25 

at same terms as for previous year, and advertised in the 
local papers warning citizens that they were the only author- 
ized persons to collect their swill and garbage. The Board 
also granted C. H. Cummett and F. Hukin permits to re- 
move night soil and contents of cesspools and privy vaults, 
and limited the times when they could do this work, so that 
no one should be offended by disagreeable odors. 

The following 1 persons were appointed undertakers, to 
wit: J. Crosby and F. C. Graham. 



CONTAGIOUS DISEASES. 

Whenever a case of diphtheria, typhoid fever, measles, 
and scarlet fever has been reported to this Board, a placard 
announcing such disease has been displayed where such 
disease existed, in accordance with the requirements of the 
Public Statutes. When necessary the premises have been 
disinfected. 

The number and kind of diseases reported to this Board 
are as follows for 1891 :

When it was apparent that no annoyance would arise, 
persons have been granted permission to keep a limited 
number of swine. 

LOW, WET AND ROTTEN LANDS. 

Early in the month of March a formal complaint was 
made of wet lands lying between Riverside square and East 
River street. 

Notices were given and hearings were held as required by 
law, and the Board adjudged the premises a nuisance, and 
advised the several owners of the lands to fill in the same to 
a proper grade, so that the water which at certain times 
gathered there might be spread out over a large territory 
and be more quickly absorbed. 

The expense attending this work was $42 for making 
plans and maps of this territory, which may be of use at 
some future time. 

There have been numerous other complaints made to the 
Board in a formal way, to which the Board has endeavored 
to give prompt and careful attention and furnish remedies as 
circumstances -^quired. 

ANONYMOUS COMPLAINTS. 

There have been many anonymous complaints made by 
mail and otherwise, which the Board could not recognize. 
It is hoped that persons having complaints will conform to 
the rules of the Board of Health, when such will be 
promptly attended to. 



27 

, The following rules and regulations were adopted early in 
the season, and were printed in both of the local newspapers, 
and also were posted in conspicuous places throughout the 
town. 



REGULATIONS OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH 

[seal] 
OF THE TOWN OF HYDE PARK. 



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 regu- 
lations shall forfeit a sum not exceeding one hundred dollars. 

In accordance with the foregoing provisions of law, this Board 
makes tho following regulations, which will be strictly enforced. 

Regulation 1. — The owner, agent, or occupant having the care 
of any tenement used as a dwelling house, shall furnish the same 
with sutficient drain, under ground, to carry off the waste waters; 
also with a suitable privy or water closet sufficient for the accommo- 
dation of all those inhabiting the premises. All waste pipes from 
water closets, sinks, bowls, bath and other set tubs, shall be suitably 
trapped, and all drains entering cesspools must be made water tight. 
There should also be a trap in the soil pipe between the house and 
cesspool, and provision made to admit air into said pipe between the 
house and trap. 

Regulation 2. — All privy vaults, unless water tight, shall be so 
constructed that the inside of the same shall be at least five feet dis- 
tant from the line of every adjoining lot or street, and from any 
dwelling house, and shall be provided with a ventilation through the 
roof; the same shall not he used as cesspools nor receive drainage 
from the premises ; their contents shall not be aliowed to leak out or 
otherwise become offensive. 

Regulation 3. — All waste water shall be so conveyed through 
sufficient drains, under ground, to a reservoir sunk under ground as 
shall be approved by the Board of Health. No person shall allow 
any drain or the overflow of any cesspool to enter any running 



28 

stream, or any drain construeted for surface water, and no person 
shall suffer any house drainage or other offensive water to remain in 
any cellar, or upon any lot or vacant ground by such person 
owned or occupied. All privy vaults and cesspools within thirty feet 
of any well or spring, the water of which is used for domestic pur- 
poses, must be water tight. 

Regulation 4. — The Board, when satisfied upon due examination 
that a cellar, room, tenement or building in the town occupied as a 
dwelling place, has become by reason of the number of occupants, 
want of cleanliness or other cause, unfit for sueh purpose, and a 
cause of nuisance or sickness to the occupants or the public, may 
issue a notice in writing to such occupants, requiring the premises 
to be put in proper condition, or if the Board see fit they may require 
the premises to be vacated, and the same shall not be again occupied 
without the written permission of the Board. 

Regulation 5. — No person shall throw or put into any public 
place or pond, or running stream, or body of water, or in any other 
place where the Board of Health may deem it a nuisance, any dead 
animal, animal matter, decayed fruit or vegetables, dirt or rubbish 
whatever ; nor shall any person throw into or upon any fiats within 
the jurisdiction of the town, any dead animals, filth or offensive 
matter. 

Regulation 6. —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 or privy well, swill 
or house offal, (ekher 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 7. — No person shall bury swill or house offal, or the 
contents of any cesspool, vaults, privy, or privy well within the 
limits of the town of Hyde Park unless a permit be granted by the 
Board of Health. 

Regulation 8. — Parties will be licensed by the Board of Health to 
collect swill and refuse matter from houses in Hyde Park twice a week 
or ottener, and all housekeepers and others are directed to deliver 
the same to those duly authorized to make such collection. 

Regulation 9. — No person shall bring into the town, keep or 
offer for sale any diseased, putrid, stale or unwholesome meat, vege- 
tables or provisions. 

Regulation 10. —No person will be permitted to keep any swine 



29 

within the limits of the town of Hyde Park without a written permit 
from the Board of Health. 

Regulation 11. —Any person sick with the small pox or other 
contagious disease, together with all persons in attendance upon 
them, and the premises where such sick person is, will be subject to 
the control of the Board, and no person shall enter or leave a house 
wherein a person is or has been sick with the disease, or in any way 
come in contact with the inmates of such house except by permission 
of the Board. 

Regulation 12. — Whenever the Board of Health shall ascertain 
that any person is sick with small pox, scarlet fever, diphtheria, or 
anv other disease dangerous to the public health, the Board shall at 
their discretion have full control of said person or premises, and 
shall, if they deem proper, order the premises vacated. 

Regulation 13. — All persons are warned not to approach a house 
or the surrounding premises whereupon is displayed a disease flag 
by day, or a red light by night. 

Regulation 14. — The bodies of all persons dying of small pox, 
scarlet fever, typhus fever or diphtheria must be immediately disin- 
fected and placed in a tight coffin, which shall not be reopened, and 
the bed, bed clothing, and other clothing used by any such person* 
and by those in attendance on him, and all the furnishings of the sick 
room, thoroughly disinfected before being taken from said room. In 
the above case no public funeral will be allowed without permission 
from the Board of Health. 

Regulation 15. — The owner, or persons having charge of any 
Vehicle, public or private, used at a funeral in the foregoing cases, to 
carry the deceased, or any of the family or attendants of the 
deceased, shall forthwith report the fact to the Board of Health, and 
shall thoroughly disinfect such vehicle before the same is again 
"used, and take such other precaution as the Board of Health shall 
direct. 

Regulation 16. — Any person in the town of Hyde Park, who 
knows or suspects any domestic animal has contagious disease (such 
as glanders in horses or cholera in swine) must immediately report 
the same to the Board of Health. The penalty for neglect to do so is 
fine or imprisonment. The above is in accordance with the provi- 
sions of Chapter 252 of the Acts of 1887. 

Regulation 17. —All complaints in relation to nuisances and 
sources of filth injurious to the public health and safety, must be 
made in writing to the Board of Health, with a description of said 



30 

nuisance and of the premises on which it exists, with the owners 1 
name, if known to the complainant. Such complaints must bear the 
signature of the complainant. Whenever such complaint shall be 
made as aforesaid, the Board of Health will proceed to examine the 
premises complained of, and will take measures to abate the nuisance, 
if such is found to exist. 

Fully believing that a large proportion of contagious diseases 
originate from unsanitary conditions, we trust we shall have the aid 
of all citizens and property owners in carrying out the above regula- 
tions, which are based on statute laws and the sanitary^ rules of our 
large towns. 

For burial permits apply to A. G. Cbilds, druggist, 30 Fairmount 
Avenue. 

The following blank form printed on postal cards, with 
Board of Health of Hyde Park, Mass., on address side, 
have been furnished to all physicians in the town, so far as 
known to the Board. 

The Board of Health is hereby notified that — - 

age living at No. is ill with 

Attending Physician. 

Note 1. Physicians are required under the Public Statutes, 
Chapter 98, Section 2, to report immediately each case of diph- 
theria, typhoid fever, scarlet fever, cholera (Asiatic), small pox, 
typhus fever, measles, membraneous croup or cynanche trachealis, 
to which they may be called. 

Note 2. In unnumbered streets a favor will be conferred by 
stating in addition to the name of the street, the nearest cross 
street. 

APPROPRIATION FOR CURRENT YEAR. 

The Board of Health would urge the necessity of the town 
making an appropriation sufficient to enable it to perform 
the duties more satisfactory to the citizens, and meet the 
requirements of the law. 

FINANCIAL. 

The manner of expending the $1,000 which was appro- 
priated for the use of the Board, and which became ex- 



31 

hausted in mid-summer, will be seen by the following finan- 
cial statement. And in addition to this the Board has 
incurred liabilities, mainly for collecting swill, of about 
$600. The Selectmen kindly paid bills which were very 
urgent, and to persons employed to do work, also necessary 
for the welfare of the town. It would be greatly to the 
interest ot our citizens should they appropriate a sum suffi- 
cient for the Board to carry out contracts with the persons 
employed.

work with.

REPORT OF THE OVERSEERS OF POOR, 



To the Citizens of Hyde Park : 

A comparison of the report of the Poor department here- 
to appended, with the reports of years immediately preced- 
ing, will show a marked decrease in the number of persons 
aided and the amount of expenditures. These facts lead to 
the conclusion that those who are in the habit of calling for 
aid, temporarily, Avhenever unemployed, have been un- 
usually prosperous during the past year. In this connec- 
tion it seems proper to state that the majority of ■' temporary 
aid" applicants, do not belong with us, but constitute a 
class of people who are naturally improvident and never 
residing any considerable length of time in any town. 
There have been a number of deaths among our own poor, 
and for the first time in many years we begin the new 
year without charging " full support" for any person other 
than the insane in hospitals.

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE PUBLIC 

LIBRARY. 



Since the last report, the Trustees have been compelled 
to encroach on the space hitherto reserved for a reading room 
order to provide additional accommodations for books. 
This has been done in such a manner as not to seriously 
impair the facilities for work in the Library, and has given 
considerable additional shelf room. The change, however, 
is only a temporary expedient, and the extra space secured 
thereby will soon be occupied. 

The library has also been lighted by electricity. A 
case has been placed in the reading room, and a large num- 
ber of books of reference placed therein, so that they may be 
freely consulted without application to the librarian. This 
has largely increased their use. Arrangements are now 
being made for the establishment of a branch delivery 
station at Readville. 

As was said last year, the catalogue of 1881 s exhausted, 
and no new catalogue should be issued until there is an 
opportunity for a much needed reclassification of books. 
Any one bringing a copy of the old catalogue to the library 
will be given in exchange therefor copies of the supplemen- 
tary catalogues covering books added from 1881 to January 
1890. A third supplement^ including the additions from 
the latter date to January, 1892, is now in process of prepa- 
ration, and will be ready for distribution early in the spring. 

During the past year 641 volumes have been added to 
the library, 30 volumes and 20' pamphlets by donation, 
and 611 volumes by purchase. The total number ol 

35 



36 

volumes now in the library is over 12,000. Besides the 
above, the current magazines are provided for use in the 
reading room and outside circulation. The total circulation 
of the library for the past year has been 31,330. There 
have been 1,095 magazines and 952 volumes used in the 
reading room. The character of the circulation is about the 
same as in previous years . 

The library fund is now $6,014.68, and reference is made 
to the report of the town treasurer for a more detailed 
statement of its condition and of the receipts and expenses 
of the library. The property under the care of the trustees 
is substantially the same as last year, except as increased by 
the additional books and cases and electric lighting fixtures. 

The following donations have been received : 

United States Government, 15 Volumes. 

" " " 18 Pamphlets. 

Commonwealth of Massachusetts, 10 Volumes. 

" •« " 2 Pamphlets. 

City of Boston, 1 Volume.

39 

The organization of the police department for the past 
year was substantially the same as the preceding year, and 
I feel gratified to report to you that our small force of 
men for regular duty has not developed bad results ; for we 
have been, during the past year, as fortunate as in previous 
years in having but little crime committed in our town ; 
but what has been our good fortune in the past may not be 
a safe guide for the future ; and my recommendations in re- 
gard to increasing the force of regular night men in last 
year's report I renew and submit for your consideration. It 
is with deep feeling and regret that I express to you my 
sorrow for the sudden death of Benjamin E. Fogg, our 
efficient and faithful night watchman. The police depart- 
ment lost a valuable officer and the town a good citizen. 
He commanded the respect and support of all who knew 
him, and in the discharge of his official duties he was ever 
faithful to his trust. 

CHARLES E. JENNEY, 
Chief of Police and Keeper of Lockup. 



ENGINEERS' REPORT. 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen : 

Gentlemen : We herewith present to you our annual re- 
port for the year ending Jan. 31st, 1892, together with a 
record of fires and losses. 

The department has responded to eighteen alarms the 
past year, and, owing to the promptness in answering these 
alarms, the town has been saved from serious losses. 

Last year we recommended the addition of more hydrants, 
and we would respectfully call your attention to the matter 
again this year. We consider this to be a very important 
subject, as many parts of our town would suffer serious loss 
in case of fire owing to the long distance from water supply, 
and we earnestly hope that an article will be placed in next 
warrant to see if town will vote to contract for fifty or sixty 
more hydrants, provided a reasonable figure can be obtained 
irom the Water Company for same. 

The apparatus is all in good condition, except Hose Co. 
No. 1 Reel, which is not fit for much further use, and we 
have contracted with the Abbott Downing Company to build 
a Hose Wagon to take place of No, 1 Reel, to be delivered 
about May 1st. 

The Fire Alarm has given perfect satisfaction, and we 
feel that this branch of our deoartment is second to none, 

a. 7 

as it has done its work perfectly, owing to the care and at- 
tention given it by E. A. Hawley as Superintendent.

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 



To the Citizens of Hyde Park : 

The year just closing has been marked by no events in 
the school department to distinguish it from that which im- 
mediately preceded it. The same system has prevailed and 
with a few exceptions the same teachers have been em- 
ployed. We have tried to make the school work meritorious 
and to furnish the children with as good opportunities for 
fitting themselves for the duties of citizenship as the means 
at hand would permit. How far we have succeeded the 
future characters of the children must answer. Mental de- 
velopment is hard to measure, it is therefore difficult for us 
to ascertain just how far school^work in any one year is suc- 
cessful in moulding character and fixing it with those traits 
of honesty, sobriety, diligence, self-reliance and strength of 
reason necessary to a good citizen and a successful business 
man. 

While there are many new theories as to systems and 
methods of work, each having advocates, Ave are well aware 
that many of these are experimental and that all cannot be 
tried during the short time allowed the children for school 
work. A change of methods is always attended with much 
risk, as should the change prove for the worse rather tha-n 
for the better, pupils will sustain a loss which cannot be 
made good without a sacrifice of time, if at all. We have 
therefore been conservative in these particulars during the 
year. 

Mr. Andrew "VJTashburn who has served upon this com- 
mittee since 1878 tendered his resignation in November.

By this resignation the town loses a competent official and 
the Board a valuable member. Mr. Washburn's long expe- 
rience in school affairs here and elsewhere made him an ex-

the various positions on sub-committees previously held by

The janitor of this building was paid for services during 
the summer vacation, as it was deemed prudent to have the 
building properly cared for while the workmen were en- 
gaged in putting in tlie steam heating plant. 

In addition to the amounts expended for incidentals at 
the several schools above, an additional sum of $834.40 has- 
been used for purposes of benefit to all the schools and) in 
such manner that it cannot be exactly apportioned. 

APPROPRIATIONS AND EXPENDITURES.. 

At the annual appropriation meeting, and; subsequently, 
the citizens voted for the support of schools the following 
sums : 

Salaries, janitors and fuel, $29,800 00 

School incidentals (March 3), 3,400 00

In the appropriation for salaries there was an actual de- 
ficit of $210.13, which has been paid from the appropriations 
of this year. 

It will be seen from the above that you have placed the 
sum of $41,269.81 at our disposal to cover the various needs 
of your schools and school property.

Leaving a balance of $561.81 unexpended. 

The annual appropriations were made upon our estimates 
of the necessities of this department, based upon conditions 
existing ac the beginning of the year, with allowance for 
some changes in salaries at the High School. 

As the year advanced it became evident that extraordi- 
nary expenditures were necessary at the Greenwood build- 
ing. 

These the Committee met by heavy drafts upon the inci- 
dental appropriation, which left that fund unequal to the 
wants of the year. Not only were our estimates too small 
for incidentals, but the large demand for new books during 



117 

the summer totally exhausted the money given for text 
books and supplies, besides leaving many bills unpaid. 

To meet the deficiencies thus caused, we requested the 
Selectmen to call a town meeting, which they did in Decem- 
ber. At this meetiug the citizens voted us $1,500 for inci- 
dentals and $1,000 for text books and supplies. These 
sums enabled us to pay the expenses and begin the new 
financial year substantially free of debt. 

It has been the policy of the Committee to ask the town 
for the least amount at the annual meetings, for which the 
schools can be carried on without injuring their standing 
and efficiency. Consequently, any extraordinary demand 
has to be met by subsequently asking additional appropria- 
tions. If the Committee asked for and received amounts to 
cover contingencies that might arise during the year, sub- 
sequent appropriations would not be necessary. 

ACCOMMODATIONS . 

In no department of the town's affairs can its rapid growth 
be so apparent as in this. With each new family comes 
new scholars, for which we must provide. 

It is the whole number that must be accommodated. Each 
member of a school must have his desk and books, whether 
regular in attendance or otherwise. 

The Greenwood district seems now to be increasing more 
rapidly than any of the others. This building now has one 
room on the third floor, making nine in all. These rooms, 
at the end of the present school year, will all be filled. 
What shall be done next year to meet the natural increase 
of scholars in this section ? Parents and taxpayers this is a 
question for your consideration. 

For nearly twenty years no new school buildings have 
been required, and only about ten thousand dollars has been 



118 

expended in enlarging the old structures to meet the wants 
of the schools. During that time the town has nearly 
doubled its population and largely increased its valuation. 

When the citizens in 1870, '71 and '72 provided the four 
large buildings now in use, it was said to have been done to 
cover the wants of our schools during the then next fifteen 
or twenty years. We are now at the end of twenty years ; 
these buildings have met the demands for which they were 
intended. These buildings being now practically fully oc- 
cupied, the time has now come when the necessities of this 
department is forced upon us, and now demand careful con- 
sideration and judicious action at the hands of the citizens. 

The High School building is at present overcrowded. 
Two hundred pupils are enrolled upon the register of this 
year. The present whole number is one hundred and 
ninety-five. 

The proper seating capacity of the assembly rooms is but 
one hundred and sixty nine. The excess above this number 
is placed in a recitation room subject to all the inconven- 
iences of change of classes and teachers. With this large 
number of our young men and women has' come a popular 
demand for a broader course of study, which has compelled 
the additions and improvements that appear more fully in 
the sub-committee's report. These changes involve better 
facilities ; aside from these considerations, the smalluess of 
the rooms, with old systems of heating and ventilation, are 
a standing menace to the health of teachers and pupils. In 
view of the conditions existing at this school, we have had 
the matter of a new building brought before the town, and 
it has been referred to the Selectmen and this committee for 
examination and report. 

We feel that the time has again come for the town to pro- 
vide a new school building, large enough for the wants of 



119 

the High School for many future years, and to equip it with 
modern improvements and facilities in keeping with the en- 
terprise of our town. We do not feel that the present 
exigency is one to be met by further " make shifts." These 
have served their purposes in the past, and any further 
action in that direction, we believe, will be injurious to the 
school, a waste of money and not creditable to the good 
name of our town. 

Should our views be adopted, the old building can be 
used tor the relief of the Greenwood and other buildings as 
necessities arise. 

It must be borne in mind that nearly or quite a full year 
will be needed to erect a new High School building, such as 
the public and permanent character of the structure re- 
quires, therefore, should this building be voted at once, 
the High School, with its increased numbers of next year, 
must be crowded into the present building one year more. 

In view of all these facts and conditions, we feel that our 
duty to the schools and to your children demands that this 
matter be urged upon your attention, and we strongly re- 
commend that immediate action be taken to meet the re- 
quirements of the town iu this matter. As public officers 
in the conscientious discharge of our duties, the necessities 
of this school forbid us to remain silent. 

TEACHERS. 

It is apparent to those directly connected with school 
management that the call for expert teachers has greatly in- 
creased during the past few years. Normal graduates and 
teachers with successful experience or with careful training 
in training-schools are now in greater demand and command 
higher salaries than formerly. 

School officers realize that the one thing without which 



120 

all methods must fail is the good teacher. There have been 
instances where persons have proved successful teachers 
without these advantages, but such persons were natural 
teachers and easily became experts. There is a demand 
among our citj^ens that the young ladies of our town have 
positions as teachers in the public schools without any ex- 
perience or professional training. 

It has been the policy of the committee to heed this de- 
mand where the applicant was found qualified and likely to 
become a successful teacher. Your schools present many 
examples of such judicious selection. This course is, how- 
ever, always attended with the danger consequent upon 
placing an untried person in a new field of labor for which 
he has no special training. It often results in such cases 
that one or more terms of school fail of results such as 
might have been obtained under a skillful instructor. 

It is a serious question how far a committee is justified in 
placing the time of the pupils to such hazards. 

There have been some changes of teachers during: the 
year ; these will be seen by a reference to the reports of the 
sub-committees. Nearly all of these changes have been 
caused by our inability to pay larger salaries. The teachers 
during the past year have cordially supported our efforts in 
the work of this department, and we cheerfully extend to 
them our thanks for their faithful labor in our schools during 
the past year. 

SALARIES. 

The schedule of salaries remains as last year, except in 
the High School. In June Mr. Hill's salary was increased 
from $1,800 to $2,000, the sum paid Mr. Elliot at the time 
of his resignation. 

Mr. Freeman's salary was advanced from $550 to 



121 

and Miss Miner, in view of her long and faithful work in 
the school, was advanced from $600 to $700. 

The advance given Mr. Freeman was occasioned by the 
demand for a military instructor. Tt is not easy to obtain a 
sub-master who can take charge of this branch of the course. 
The sub-committee found that a special teacher in the drill 
would cost at least the amount of advance required as above 
to retain Mr. Freeman, who had charge of that branch last 
year and gave great satisfaction by his careful and thorough 
work. Had this advance not been made Mr. Freeman 
would have accepted a call elsewhere at the salary now paid 
him. 

A glance at the last State Report of the Board of Educa- 
tion will show that our town is paying salaries to its female 
teachers below the average of cities and towns in our vicinity. 
The committee has been reluctant to advance the schedule 
rate of the Grammar and Primary teachers in view of the 
desire of the citizens to hold the yearly expenses as low as 
possible. It is true however that an increase of all of these 
salaries, to a maximum of $500 per year, would enable us to 
secure and retain teachers, whose services would aid materi- 
ally in the good work desired from the schools. Such an 
increase would hardly carry our average rate above that of 
nei^hborino- towns. 

COURSE OF STUDY. 

At the time of our last report this matter was under con- 
sideration by a sub-committee. This committee reported in 
July, and recommended several changes in the work of the 
schools. A change of some of the text-books was also rec- 
ommended. This report was carefully considered at several 
special meetings of the full committee and after some amend- 
ments it was adopted in August. At the same time the 



122 

Rules and Regulations of the Committee were revised, as 
were also the General Instructions for teachers. As amend- 
ed and revised, the Rules and Regulations, General Instruc- 
tions, and Course of Study were printed and furnished for 
the use of teachers in September. The changes made we 
believe have been justified by better work. 

TEXT BOOKS. 

The changes of text books doubtless caused some increase 
in expenditure, but when it is considered that many of the 
old books displaced would have been replaced by new books 
of the same kind at full price, whereas by the change new 
books were obtained at exchange prices which are much less, 
the net increase of cost to this town caused by the change 
must be comparatively small. Changes were made in Arith- 
metics, Readers and Spellers. GreeuleaPs Arithmetic, 
Davis's Readers and Metcalf 's Speller being substituted for 
Davis & Peck's Arithmetics, McGufFey's Readers and Wor- 
cester Spellers. 

ATTENDANCE. 

It gives us pleasure to be able to state that the school at- 
tendance has not been interrupted by contagious diseases. 

Whether from the fact of the free use of disinfectants and 
careful attention to the sanitary conditions in and about 
our school buildings or from other causes, it is true that 
the schools of Hyde Park have been remarkably fortunate in 
their freedom from such diseases for a long number of years. 

An examination of the tables annexed to this report will 
give accurate information under this head. 

The efficient services of Mr. A. D.' Rooney as truant 
officer is not without its effect in this matter. 

Parents can aid the schools greatly by exercising care 
that the children are regularly and promptly sent to school. 



123 

STANDARD OF SCHOLARSHIP. 

Last year the committee adopted a rule requiring an 
average of seventy-five per cent, from the graduates of the 
Grammar School. None were allowed to take diplomas or 
to enter the High School who had failed of this mark. The 
same rule was adhered to this year. The good effect of the 
rule last year was apparent in the work of the Grammar 
graduates this year. One hundred candidates for gradua- 
tion were examined by the committee in June. Of this 
number but eight failed to obtain the required mark. Last 
year a class of ninety-seven was examined, of which twenty- 
three failed. This fact would indicate that the claims of 
the committee in behalf of the rule were justified. 

MUSIC. 

At the time of our last report it was recognized that the 
work in music for some cause was not satisfactory. 

The matter was then in the hands of a Sub-Committee 
for careful investigation. In June the matter of the elec- 
tion of a music teacher was referred to this Committee, and 
later in the year this Committee submitted a report. 

Meantime our former music teacher severed his connec- 
tions with our schools. 

Subsequently the Sub-Committee recommended the em- 
ployment of Miss Dodge, a graduate of Salem Normal 
School, and a pupil of Prof. John W. Tufts for the position 
of music teacher in our schools. 

She was employed upon probation of three months. Her 
work is awakening a good interest in the schools and gives 
promise of creditable results. Miss Dodge's permanent em- 
ployment is only dependent upon acceptable work. 

MILITARY DRILL. 

The town having appropriated the funds in March to fully 



124 

equip the boys of High School, the necessary swords and 
muskets were procured and work has been carried forward 
with much interest. 

The use of the Y. M. C. A. Hall was procured for one 
hour upon each of two days in a week for drill purposes 
during cold weather. 

In May a public exhibition was given and prizes were 
awarded. It was the judgment of those who then witnessed 
the work of the boys that the work was very creditable. 

The interest in this branch of the course is fully main- 
tained and we believe is very beneficial both for the lads and 
the school. 

teacher's institute. 

It was the pleasure of the Committee to welcome Mr. J. 
T. Prince, Agent of the State Board of Education with an 
able corps of assistants in his educational work in October. 

The High School building was placed at his disposal and 
all of the schools Avere closed for the day that the teachers 
might gain the benefits to be derived from the lectures given 
upon various educational topics. Teachers were present 
from Dedham, Norwood, Sharon, Milton, Walpole and a 
few from Attleboro, about 150 in all. 

The programme of exercises was arranged for Primary, 
Grammar and High Schools. Mr. Dickinson, Secretary of 
the State Board opened the Institute with a general lecture 
upon "Methods," which was listened to with much pleasure 
by all interested in school work. The subject was handled 
with great skill and presented with remarkable clearness and 
force. 

The exercises were full of interest and must have been 
very beneficial to those in charge of schools both officers and 
teachers. 



125 

We hope that the State Board will be able to visit us 
again at some time in the near future and aid and encourage 
us by their influence and suggestions. 

STEAM HEATING. 

For a number of years complaints have been made that 
Grew School building could not be properly warmed, not- 
withstanding the Committee had supplied double windows 
in all exposed places and hud furnished six furnaces which 
consumed nearly or quite 90 tons of coal per year. 

This matter was brought to your notice in the report of 
the local committee of last year. Upon careful inspection 
of the condition of the furnaces in March, this board felt 
warranted in bringing this subject before the town and re- 
commending a special appropriation of $2,500 to provide 
this building with steam heat. 

Upon a presentation of the facts at the annual meeting the 
citizens voted the above sum for this purpose. 

Mr. Hathaway was added to the present local committee 
and given power to expend this money, and their report is 
hereto annexed. 

The winter thus far has been mild, with the exception of 
a few days. So far as we are now advised the plant gives 
satisfaction except in one room. In this room whether irom 
lack of sufficient heating surface, or from other cause the 
required temperature cannot be readily obtained if at all. 

The attention of the Exeter Machine Works has been 
called to this matter, and stand ready to do whatever may be 
found necessary to meet the terms of their contract. 

It is a pleasure to visit this building upon a wintry 
morning and to find it evenly warmed throughout and to 
know that the children can pursue their work with comfort. 

REFERENCE BOOKS. 

If there is any one thing that our schools need more than 



126 

any other at present it is reference books. It would aid the 
work of our schools very much if each building was sup- 
plied with a small, but well selected library of such works. 

REMARKS. 

It is often the case that citizens comment upon the amount 
of work which is required of them in the public school. 
The wisdom of taking up so many branches is often ques- 
tioned. The wisdom of a High School course is also a sub- 
ject of criticism. These are proper subjects of discussion 
among parents, but to a great extent the Committee is pow- 
erless to make any changes. For general information I 
quote here the Public Statutes of the Commonwealth upon 
these subjects. 

Chap. 44, Sec. 1.— •' In every town there shall be kept; for at 
least six months in each year, at the expense of said town, by a 
teacher or teachers of competent ability and good morals, a sufficient 
number of schools for the instruction of all the children who may 
legally attend public school therein, in orthography, reading, 
writing, English, grammar, geography, arithmetic, drawing, the 
history of the United States," 1 and good behavior. Algebra, vocal 
music, agriculture, sewing, physiology, and hygiene shall be taught 
by lectures or otherwise, in all pnblic schools in which the School 
Committee, deem it expedient." 

Sec 2. — " Every town may, and every town containing five hun- 
dred families or house holders, according to the latest public census, 
taken by the authority of either the Commonwealth of the United 
States ; shall, beside the schools prescribed in the preceding section, 
maintain a high school to be kept by a master of competent ability 
and good morals, who in addition to the branches of learning before 
mentioned shall give instruction in general history, book-keeping, 
surveying, geometry, natural philosophy, chemistry, botany, the civil 
polity of this commonwealth and of the United States, and the Latin 
language. Such high school shall be kept for the benefit of all the 
inhabitants of the town, ten months at least exclusive of vacations, 
in each year, at such convenient place or alternately at such places 
in the town as the legal voters at their annual meeting determine, 
and every town containing four thousand inhabitants the teacher or 



127 

teachers of the school required by this section shall in addition to 
the branches of instruction before required, be competent to give in- 
struction in the Greek and French languages, astronomy, geology, 
rhetoric, logic, intellectual and moral science and political economy." 

Chap. 69 of the Acts of 1884. — Amend Sec. 1 of Chap. 44 by 
striking out the word Hygiene and inserting in place thereby the 
words •• Hygiene and Elementary use of hand tools." 

The Acts of 1885, Chap. 332. added "Physiology and Hygiene 
which in both divisions of the subject shall include special instruc- 
tion as to effects of alcoholic drinks, stimulants and narcotics on the 
human system, shall be taught as a regular branch of study to all 
pupils in all schools supported wholly or in part by public money," 
etc. 

Sec. 7 of Chap. 44 of Public Statutes says, " Any town or city hav- 
ing more than ten thousand inhabitants shall annually make provi- 
sion for giving free instruction in industrial and mechanical drawing 
to persons over 15 years of age, in either day or evening schools, un- 
der direction of the School Committee." 

The foregoing are the substantial requirements of the 
Statutes by which school officers are controlled in the 
school work. 

School Committees are not responsible for the number 
of branches required to be taught neither have they any 
discretion to make studies elective. 

It is undoubtedly true that in many instances much time 
might be saved and better results obtained in the special 
studies which parents desire their children to pursue as be- 
ing of greater advantage to them in view of the life work 
designed for them. To my mind it seems, that in consid- 
eration of the present requirments demanded of young men 
and women, much better practical results might be ob- 
tained if the school curriculum could be broadened and a 
system of electives introduced. 

School masters in the old acceptation of the word are no 
longer an exclusive production of New England. Other 
sections of the country have followed its lead and produce 



128 

men and women educated as well and in similar schools. 

The future is to demand of us skill in design and work- 
manship — in arts and mechanics, and the times are ripe for 
the public schools to take up this subject intelligently to 
the end that some portion of the vast sums of money ex- 
pended for popular education may give the children some 
special advantages in these matters which are fast becom- 
ing so necessary to the prosperity of otfr State. 

With the Course of Study circumscribed by the present 
Statute requirments nothing of importance in this direction 
can be done. By reference to the Statute it will be seen 
that the required studies are more than enough to fully oc- 
cupy the time of the children during the time of the course 
and no time can be given to matters not required. 

Fellow citizens this is your concern and your remedy is 
not through this School Committee but through the Gener- 
al Court. The Annual Message of His Excellency Gov- 
ernor Russell contains wise and timely suggestions upon 
these matters and it only needs a popular demand that may 
be heard in the Halls of Legislation to emancipate your 
public schools from some of the Statute requirements, and 
give parents and committees more liberty in the instruction 
of the children. 

When this is done the public school can assume a nearer 
relation to the positive requirements of this progressive 
age. Respectfully submitted, 

CHARLES G. CHICK, Chairman. 

Hyde Park, Jan. 25, 1892. 
At a meeting of the Hyde Park School Board, the fore- 
going report of the Chairman was read and adopted as the 
annual report of the full board.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE FOR SUPPLYING THE 

GREW SCHOOL BUILDING WITH 

STEAM HEAT. 



To the School Committee: 

The matter of supplying the Grew School building with 
steam heat having been referred to us, with power to investi- 
gate and contract for any system which might meet our ap- 
proval we immediately collected such information upon the 
subject as was available. We asked the advice of our towns- 
man Mr. W. U. Fairbairn, a well known expert in matters of 
this kind, and were aided by his suggestions and judgment 
until our work was completed. 

We determined upon a plant similar to that in successful 

use at the Greenwood School, known as the combination 

system, supplying heat by both direct and indirect radiation. 

Proposals were asked in local and Boston papers and bids 

were submitted as follows: 

Walworth Mfg. Co., $2811 

Lynch & Woodman, 2445 

Arthur B. Franklin, 2380 

Exeter Machine Works, 221 1 

The contract was awarded to the Exeter Machine Works, 
and called for a steel tubular boiler tested and made tight at 
150 lbs. hydro static pressure, with certificate of inspection 
and a policy of insurance for one year, the plant to be of 
sufficient capacity to warm all the rooms of the building to 
a uniform temperature of at least 70 in all weathers— with 
all necessary connections and attachments. A bond was 
given as required under the by-laws of the town for the faith- 
ful performance of the contract. 

The old chimney not being of sufficient capacity for the 

129 



130 

boiler furnace, a contract was made with Mr. Peare for a new 
chimney for the sum of $335, including carpenter work. 

During the summer vacation workmen took possession of 
the building and the plant was ready for use Sept. 1st. We 
had the work carefully inspected while in progress and after 
its completion by parties expert in this matter and are satis- 
fied that the work is substantially dq.ne, with good material. 

The capacity can only be tested by severe winter weather. 
We are advised that it is ample, but should it fail of the re- 
quired standard the Exeter Machine Works stand ready to 
make good its contract and their bond will be responsible 
for any failure in this particular. We submit the following 
list of expenditures: 

Exeter Machine Works, $2211 

Geo. H. Peare, chimney and extra, 244 57 

Boston Herald, adv., 7 25 

W. U. Fairbairn, inspection, 10 00 

S. R. Moseley, adv., 2 50 

W. W. Hilton, fence in cellar, 12 73 

F. W. Gleason, plumbing, etc., 10 15 

E. S. Hathaway, cash paid out, 80 

$2499 00 

Cr. 

By amount of the appropriation, $2500 00 

Balance unexpended, fflfr 00 

Respectfully submitted, 

CHARLES G. CHICK,

Sub-Committee. 



SUB-COMMITTEE REPORTS. 



HIGH SCHOOL. 

Since our last report we have been obliged by the increas- 
ing numbers of our school to employ additional teaching 
force, and we have now, one principal and five assistants. 
The committee secured the services of Miss Isabel Eaton, 
a graduate of Smith College, and a lady of superior attain- 
ments, and we believe well fitted for the duties of an addi- 
tional instructor. She began in September and so far has 
not disappointed us. 

During the past year the Course of Study has been ex~ 
tended and improved so as to meet the wants of scholars 
fitting for the Institute of Technology, Harvard, Wellesley,. 
Smith, and other colleges, as well as to broaden and perfect 
the departments of Science, Physics, and English for those 
intending to pursue their studies no further. The Commit- 
tee have in contemplation the introduction of the study of 
stenography and type-writing as soon as room can be had 
for the machines. This study would add numbers to the 
business course, and furnish a practical finish to a business 
education ; but for lack of room it must be deferred. 

There is need, also, of a room for the Armory. The 
arms and accoutrements of the battalion are now kept in 
racks fixed to the walls of a class-room, which also does duty 
as a dressing-room. This arrangement is not convenient, 
but it is the best that can be doue at present. The boys 
drill in the school-yard in the warm weather and in the Y„ 
M. C. A. hall during the winter months. The latest system 
of drill regulations approved b} r the War Department has 

131 



132 

been issued to them and instruction in the new tactics is 
well advanced. The physical exercises of the the girls have 
continued, but this branch of the curriculum will not reach 
its best and fullest development till sufficient room can be 
had to display its possibilities. 

There probably has never been a time when so much 
intelligent effort has been made among educators to perfect 
the study of the English language and of its best authors. 
The importance of this study in any higher education cannot 
be overestimated, and the Committee have provided a liberal 
course in this department of the new arrangement — and it 
only needs a school library of a fair assortment of the best 
writers to render this study the most interesting of any to a 
laro-e number of our scholars. A handsome contribution of 
$100.00 worth of well selected books has been made to the 
school library by the editors of the "High School Register" 
and the officers of the Battalion, and temporary shelves pro- 
vided for them in the main room until better arrangements 
can be made. We hope the time is not so far distant when 
the school may be able to rejoice not only in a reasonable 
number of well selected books, but in an appropriate library 
room for the use and enjoyment of its scholars. 

The entering class at the beginning of the year in Septem- 
ber numbered seventy-nine. The whole number enrolled 
this year is two hundred. Number now in attendance one 
hundred and eighty-nine, divided as follows : 



First Class

133 

The farthest limit of convenience and of economical man- 
agement of the school has been reached this year, and it is 
earnestly hoped that the Committee appointed by the town 
at the last town meeting, may be able at an early date to re- 
commend some action on the part of the town toward the 
erection of a commodious and substantial building so imper- 
atively needed by the school. The present building was 
calculated to meet any probable needs of the school for five 
years from September, 1889. In September, 1891 it was 
more crowded than in 1889. The school is in the hands of 
good teachers and is doing well, but the work is done at some 
disadvantage for lack of room, and if there should be a still 
larger entering class next September, the inconvenience will 
be increased and the efficiency of the work imperilled. The 
Hyde Park High school is an institution in which our citizens 
may justly take pride. Its record is a creditable one, and 
its future promising. There can be no greater mistake than 
to hamper its progress and cramp its usefulness by continued 
confinement in its present quarters. The numbers that 
crowd its entering classes attest the interest of our citizens 
in a higher education for their children. It is simply ordi- 
nary forethought for their best interests to provide them 
with a convenient and comfortable school building as soon 
as it is possible to do so.

GREW SCHOOL. 

This school has continued under the care of Mr. Dean, 
who has for many years devoted his time and talents to its 
welfare. At the present time the work here progresses 
under favorable conditions, and we feel confident that the 
children are being well and carefully instructed. The num- 
bers are not sufficient to overcrowd the rooms and this gives 
the teachers better opportunities for good work and makes 
the sanitary conditions very much better. 

Rightly distributed in the various grades the building is 
capable of accommodating the natural increase of the district 
for a number of years, without additional teachers. At the 
beginning of the spring term in April Miss Gushee resigned 
as teacher in the IX grade. The vacancy was filled by the 
transfer of Miss Curtis from X grade at the Greenwood. 
During the summer Miss Gordon of the VIII class and Miss 
Edson of the XI class resigned. These vacancies were filled 
in September by the employment of Miss Abby A. Suther- 
land, a graduate of the Salem Normal School, for the VIII 
grade, and Miss Edna Cherrington of this town in the XI. 
In November Miss Pollard of the VII grade accepted a call to 
Pawtucket, R. I., at an advanced salary. Miss Blanche L. 
Bright of Canton succeeded to this vacancy. These resig- 
nations deprived the school of three strong and popular 
teachers. The young ladies secured for these vacancies are 
doing good work and bid fair to make the year a successful 
one. This school is to be congratulated upon the spirit of har- 
mony which exists between its teachers. This, we believe, is 
of great value to the work, both in the tone and discipline of 
the school. 

The new steam heating apparatus is meeting a long felt 
want in supplying comfortable rooms in all weathers. The 
room on the third floor of the annex will need additional 
heating surface for direct radiation, and the Exeter Machine 



135 

Works have beea so notified. The building is now twenty 
years old and begins to show marks of wear. The ceilings 
need cleaning and whitening, some rooms need new furniture, 
and the floors are becoming much worn. The buildings were 
painted last summer, but from insufficient funds placed at 
our disposal the painting of the fence was postponed. The 
cellar ought to be graded and plastered overhead. We 
recommend that the ceilings of the rooms be thoroughly 
cleaned and whitened, or tinted, during the coming year, and 
that the cellar be put in good condition. In closing, we 
would thank the teachers for the faithful work and loyal sup- 
port of our efforts to make the year a successful one. 

CHARLES G. CHICK, 
RICHARD M. JOHNSON, 

Local Committee. 



FAIRMOUNT SCHOOL. 



No changes in the corps of instructors have marred the 
work of the year just closing, and the advantage which 
accrues from the retention of experienced teachers is manifest 
in the present excellent condition of the school. To this 
gratifying result. Mr. Cross has largely contributed by his 
intelligent and conscientious supervision. 

Special attention has been given to the writing exercises 
of the lower grammar school grades, with a view to laying the 
foundation for freer and better penmanship in the subsequent 
school work. Notwithstanding the fact that there has been 
much sickness in the community this winter, attendance 
upon the Fairmount School has not been materially affected 
thereby. We take pleasure in commending the record of 
Elvera Bloom, who has been perfect in atttendance for the 
past five years, and Mahlon Plummer, who has been perfect 
for the past four years. 



136 

By direction of the local committee and for experimental 
purposes in the matter of ventilation, fireplaces have been 
constructed in two of the rooms and open grates provided. 
During the present winter complaints have been constantly 
received in regard to the insufficient and uneven heating of 
the building. Your committee are of the opinion that the 
substitution of steam heating apparatus is a desirable remedy 
for the evils which apparently cannot be remedied under 
the present system. 

HENRY S. BUNTON, 
AUGUSTA L. HANCHETT, 

Sub-Committee. 



GREENWOOD SCHOOL. 



Several events worthy of note have occurred in this school 
during the past year, both as regards the administration of 
the school, and as relating to the school building. 

At. the time of making the last report the position of Mas- 
ter's Assistant was vacant, and we had no immediate prospect 
of filling the vacancy. We were fortunate, however, in secur- 
ing the services of Miss Carrie H. Stevens, a graduate of 
the Farmington Normal School, and a teacher of experience. 
She assumed the duties of the position with the beginning of 
April term, and has filled the place with credit to herself, and 
to the eminent satisfaction of the Committee. 

At the same time, Miss Belle D. Curtis, was transferred to 
the ninth grade in the Grew School, and the vacancy thus 
created was filled by the appointment of Miss Alma E. Batch- 
elder, who came to us well recommended from Everett. 

With the opening of the Fall Term, the large number of 
pupils in the lower grades made it necessary to divide the 
classes, and employ another teacher. The tenth, eleventh, 
and twelfth grades were thus divided, Miss Freeman assum- 
ing a portion of the tenth and eleventh, Miss Howes the 



137 

eleventh and twelfth, and Miss Jennie E. Sutherland, a 
graduate of the Salem Normal School and a teacher of ex- 
perience, takingl the 'new division of t the twelfth class. In 
all these appointments the Committee feel they have been 
fortunate in their choice, and have materially strengthened 
the teaching force of the school. 

In January, Miss Mary F. Perry who has been connected 
with the school for about ten years, tendered her resignation, 
which was accepted at the last meeting of the Board. Miss 
Annie B. Davis, a Salem Normal school graduate coming from 
East Rochester, N. H., has been appointed by the Local Com- 
mittee to fill the vacancy, temporarily. Should she meet their 
expectations she will probably be permanently appointed by 
the Board. 

Outside the fitting up of the new room in the upper story, 
but little has been required in the way of repairs or improve- 
ments on the property. As we suggested would be the case 
in our last report, the call for additional room became impera- 
tive with the beginning of the school year in September, the 
division of the grades making the opening of another room a 
necessity. 

To meet this demand, the small hall was taken, and by con- 
structing a proper partition, a class-room about forty-five feet 
by twenty was obtained, capable of seating about fifty pupils. 
Proper ventilation was secured and the steam heating system 
extended to the new room, which is now occupied by the 
seventh class, and is one of the pleasantest rooms in the 
building. 

By this alteration another room about fifteen by twenty 
feet was secured, which can be utilized as a Teachers' Room, 
for Teachers' meetings and like purposes. It is heated by 
steam, and only needs to be properly furnished to be avail- 
able for such use. The total cost of the alterations, and the 
furnishing of the school room, was in the neighborhood of $700. 



138 

Several of the rooms in the middle grades are still in a 
crowded state, as will be seen by the detailed statistics of the 
school which appear elsewhere in this report. The total en- 
rolment in the school the past term was 404. Should the 
growth in this section of the town continue to increase as it 
has for the past two years, the question of school accommo- 
dations in this district will again force itself upon the atten- 
tion of the town at no distant day. The construction of a 
new High School building, as contemplated, would leave the 
present building available for grammar school purposes, and 
solve the problem, not only for this school, but by the forma- 
tion of a new district which should take in the centre of the 
town lying between the two railroads, would create natural 
district lines, and relieve all the outlying school buildings, 
furnishing adequate room to accomodate the growth going on 
in those districts.

BUTLER SCHOOL. 



The Butler School under the care of Miss Grace B. Gidney 
has done good work throughout the year. During the vaca- 
tion the building was painted and put in repair. Your com- 
mittee would suggest the advisability of putting in water the 
coming season, as the school is now dependent for its supply 
upon the kindness of neighbors. The danger of freezing 
pipes is somewhat increased by the lack of a cellar, but we 
have made careful inquiries and are satisfied that this danger 
can be easily guarded against, and the building placed upon 
an independent footing. 

AUGUSTA L. HANCHETT, 

Local Committee. 



139 



DAMON SCHOOL. 



This school at present numbers 130 pupils under the care 
of four teachers. Mr. J. S. Manter closed his labors here in 
June, and at the opening of the September term the school 
was placed in the charge of Mr. Walter F. Sayward, who 
came to us with a well established reputation for successful 
work. He holds his school easily but firmly, has won the re- 
spect and good will of his pupils, and is doing good work. 
The other teachers remain the same as last year. 

A concrete walk and forming platform have been laid, and 
a few necessary repairs made on the building during the 
year, but on examination it is found that quite extensive re- 
pairs will be required the coming summer. The tin roof is 
worn out. and must be renewed as soon as possible. The 
walls inside the building are badly discolored in several 
places, caused by the leaking of the roof, and should be re- 
tinted. The furnaces are nearly worn out and the question 
of new heating apparatus must be decided in the near future. 
At least one new furnace will be a necessity another winter. 
Another improvement which we would suggest is the removal 
of the pump and the filling up of the old unused well in the 
front yard. In the opinion of your committee an appropria- 
tion should be asked for sufficient to cover all these needed 
repairs. 

In closing this report we desire to say that the school is 
progressing as favorably as can be expected under existing 
conditions, some of which are not conducive to the best re- 
sults to the graduating class. In consequence of the great 
reduction in numbers, the classes, especially in the upper 
grades, are very small and the master has entire charge of 
three. He has in his room at present twenty-six pupils, only 
four of whom are members of the 5th class. In so small a 
class they miss the stimulus and enthusiasm which the asso- 



140 

ciation and competition of a number of pupils naturally ex- 
cites, and besides receive but a fractional part of the master's 
time. In view of these disadvantages the question arises, 
Would not these four pupils reap greater benefits by being 
transferred to the larger 5th classes of the Fairmount and 
Grew schools, the expense of their conveyance to and from 
school being borne by the town ?

EVENING SCHOOLS. 

The sessions of the Evening Schools were continued 
after the date of the last report through the months of Feb- 
ruary and March under the same teachers. The sessions 
of the present Winter opened Nov. 30th. The Centre 
School, in the High School building, was placed under the 
charge of Mr. Geo. F. Freeman as principal, with Mr. E. 
St. C. Fellows as assistant. Mr. George F. Eldredge 
was appointed principal of the Readville School, and Mr. 
Sumner R. Hooper assistant. 

The attendance in both schools has been considerably 
larger than last year, and a manifest desire on the part of 
the pupils to improve the opportunities which these schools 
offer has been apparent. It is impossible to classify results, 
as the work is almost wholly individual, and the branches 
taught range from the alphabet to double entry book- 
keeping. Quite a large number of the pupils represent 
graduates of our grammar schools, who, unable from force 
of circumstances to pursue their studies in the High School, 
take this method of supplementing the knowledge there 
obtained. The effort is certainly a laudable one, and 
worthy of all encouragement. From the reports of the 



141 

masters of the two schools we gather the facts relating to 
each, as presented below : 

CENTRE SCHOOL. 

This school embraces all classes. The oldest pupil be- 
ing 38 and the youngest 15. The average age is about 
21. About one-third of the membership are females. 
The number enrolled is about 40. The largest attendance 
has been 37, the smallest 13, average attendance 24. In 
point of numbers there has been a decided gain over last year. 

The scholars are faithful in their work, manifest a desire 
to improve as rapidly as possible, and the progress is good. 
The work is largely individual, and the branches taught 
embrace Reading, Writing, Arithmetic, Spelling, Gram- 
mar, History, English Composition, and Bookkeeping. 

READVILLE SCHOOL. 

This school opened with a large number, and 101 differ- 
ent names appear upon the roll. Of this number 75 are 
males and 26 females. In age they range from 38, the 
oldest, to 14, the youngest. Over ninety per cent, of the 
number are Irish, and a few Canadians, one negro and one 
Indian are embraced in its membership. Seventy-nine of 
the number are between the ages of 14 and 20 : 17 between 
20 and 30 and 5 between 30 and 40. The average attend- 
ance has been 28. Reading and Writing are the branches 
in which most of the pupils desire instruction, although 
Arithmetic, Spelling, Grammar and Book-keeping are 
among the studies pursued. The larger part of the mem- 
bership live in the immediate vicinity, and are mainly 
employed in th^e Cotton Mill. Most of the pupils come 
with an earnest desire to learn and have made good pro- 
gress. The large disparity between the total enrolment 
and the average attendance is due to the fact that the 



142 - 

attendance is very irregular, and the average of 28, 
represents a much larger number of different pupils. 
Another cause probably exists in the fact, that a large 
number crowded into the school at the opening, more than 
the teaching force employed could attend to at once, as the 
work is individual to a great degree ; before the two 
teachers employed could give attention to each individual 
need, quite a number dropped out, and it is within the 
range of possibility that among this number were some 
who wonld have been regular attendants had they been set 
to work at once. Perhaps, if, at the opening of another 
season, a sufficient corps of teachers conld be in attendance 
to look after each individual presenting himself at the 
school, a better attendance would result.

EVENING DRAWING SCHOOL. 

From the 31st of January to the 1st of April, the draw- 
ing school was continued under the instruction of Mr. 
Frank W. Howard, along the same lines as presented in 
the last report. The school was closed on the latter date, 
and on the evening of April 15th a public exhibition of the 
work done during the term was given in the High School 
building, which was attended by a good number of citizens 
and shewed very creditable work on the part of the pupils 
and instructor. 

The present term began on the evening of Nov. 30th, 
1891, the school being under the charge of Mr. Charles 
H. Fogg, draughtsman of the Brainard Milling Machine 
Works, a thorough competent instructor, whose report is 
presented herewith. Mr. Fogg's suggestions as to a change 



143 

of plan in the conduct of the school is worthy of attention. 
E. S. HATHAWAY, 
AUGUSTA L. HANCHETT, 

Committee on Evening Drawing School. 

E. S. Hathaway, Esq., Chairman Committee, 

Dear Sir : — I submit the following report. 
The evening drawing school opened Monday, Nov. 30th. 
Three classes were arranged as follows : Elementary 
drawing to consist principally of geometrical figures, on 
Mondays at 7.30 p.m. Mechanical, to consist of project- 
ing from the object, detail parts of a mill grinder loaned 
by Mr. A. H. Brainard, being used for this purpose, 
Wednesdays at 7.30 p.m. The Architectural class works 
from the flat copy in the shape of a set of house plans 
loaned by Mr. E. N. Boy den, a Boston Architect, Fri- 
days at 7.30 p.m. Jan. 1st, there were seventy-seven 
names on the roll, but a number have been crossed off, not 
having been present for three or more sessions ; so that 
the roll at present contains sixty-one names. Attendance 
averages about forty-eight, the Elementary class beino- 
more than twice as large as either of the others. There 
are but few boys, and most of these are in the Elementary 
class. The interest in the work seems to be good, but 
especially is this to be noticed in the Elementary class. 
This interest together with what has been noted in the 
other classes, has led me to the conclusion that perhaps it 
might be better to change the arrangement another year, 
and substitute the following plan. A class, for beginners 
for the study of geometrical drawing. For those familiar 
with geometrical drawing, there would be a class in pro- 
jection, and also an advance class in which the study of 
working drawings could be taken up, to include the ar- 
rangement of work on paper, and an intelligible way of 



144 

locating dimensions. There would seem to be no objection 
to the study of both architectural and mechanical drawing 
by this class. CHARLES H. FOGG, Instructor. 



INDUSTRIAL SCHOOLS. 

These schools, consisting of carpentry school for boys, 
and a sewing school for girls, were opened the first week 
in July, and continued through most of the vacation. The 
carpentry school, under the care of Mr. J. E. Webb, was 
unusually successful, some fifty different boys having entered 
it, and an average of more than thirty were in attendance 
each day during the entire term. The Committee would 
recommend a grading of this class the coming summer, 
thus enabling those who have already had the benefit of 
the lessons to take up more difficult and Complicated work. 
The value to our boys of this training in the use of tools 
can hardly be estimated. 

The sewing school, under Mrs. W. A. Boardman, 
started with about the same number of pnpils as the 
carpentry school, but the interest was not kept up as we 
would like to have seen it, the numbers steadilv decreasing 
until only about half a dozen availed themselves of the last 
lessons. On account of the falling off in numbers and 
interest, the school closed a week or more before the 
carpentry school. If, with a larger appropriation, we 
could arrange for different departments in this school, one 
for sewing, another for mending, and still another for in- 
struction in cutting and fitting garments, the results would, 
without doubt, justify the expenditure, and possibly ac- 
complish more for our girls than the one hour per week 
devoted to sewing during the school year.
