SELECTMEN'S REPORT. 



The Selectmen of Hyde Park, in presenting to the town 
the following statements of the expenditures for the financial 
year ending Jan. 31st, 1876, would state that we have endeav- 
ored to avoid any outlay in excess of the appropriations 
which come under our immediate control ; and, as will appear, 
have, in the main, been successful. 

INCIDENTALS. 

The appropriation for incidentals was $8,000, of which 
amount $2,126.13 was drawn for school, and $5,701.72 for 
other incidentals ; these amounts include $1,042.73 drawn to 
pay bills contracted previous to Jan. 15, 1875. 

HIGHWAYS AND BRIDGES. 

The appropriation for highways and bridges, including the 
amounts appropriated to build Roxanna street, and to im- 
prove Central avenue, was $3,765 ; the amount of orders 
drawn was $2,922.53, and includes the sum of $242.60 for 
outstanding claims contracted prior to the present financial 
year. With the amount expended the streets have been 
kept in fair condition, the sidewalks improved, and several 
new culverts built. The bridge at Bridge street has been 
rebuilt, and the Fairmount bridge has been materially im- 
proved by strengthening the arches ; this bridge will need to 
be re-planked, and perhaps the abutments will need attention 
during the coming season. 



u MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

In view of the small amount appropriated for highways, it 
was deemed advisable to dispose of two of the horses belong- 
ing to the town to save cost of keeping, and they were sold 
early in the season at auction, bringing satisfactory prices. 

Although very many of our accepted streets, as well as the 
sidewalks, might be much improved, it is conceded that they 
will now compare favorably with those of our neighboring 
towns. 

The guide-boards are in good condition throughout the 
town ; and in this connection we would call the attention of 
the town to the practicability of placing proper notices on 
the several unaccepted streets, stating that they are private 
ways, &c. 

RIVER STREET. 

As^some explanation should be made in regard to the ap- 
parent excess of expenditure over the appropriation for River 
street, we would state that the town is entitled to draw from 
the County Treasury $3,211, a portion of which has already 
been paid into the Town Treasury ; and we have, by decision 
of the County Commissioners, unexpectedly been called upon 
to pay $750 for land damages on the second section ; and 
there has also been charged to this appropriation the sum of 
$720.30 for legal expenses incurred by vote of the town on 
account of this street. 

STREET LAMPS. 

During the past year, citizens have erected at their own 
expense thirteen additional street lamps, which are lighted at 
the expense of the town, making one hundred and twenty- 
eight now in use, and are, as last year, in charge of the New 
England Gas Light Company of Boston. Their agent has 
been faithful in the discharge of his duty, and the quality of 
the light is excellent. 

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

The appropriation for the Fire Department was $6,400 ; 
the amount of orders drawn, $6,054.37 ; of this amount, 



SELECTMEN'S REPORT. ' 

$1,203.49 was drawn to pay bills incurred previous to Jan. 15, 
1875, making the actual expense of the Department for the 
current year less than $5,000. It has been the constant aim 
of the Engineers, we are pleased to say, to avoid all unneces- 
sary expenditures, and no considerable outlay has been made 
by them without consulting the Selectmen. We are assured 
that the best of feeling prevails among the members of the 
Department, and for its discipline and efficiency the town is 
to be congratulated. As will be noticed in the report of the 
Engineers, they recommend that some action be taken in re- 
gard to further water supply. It appears to be an actual 
necessity that additional reservoirs should be constructed, 
which could be done at comparatively small expense in 
several localities.

ENGINEERS' REPORT. 



Engineers' Office, H. P. F. Department, > 
Hyde Park, Feb. ist, 1875. ) 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen of Hyde Park: 

Gentlemen, — The undersigned, Engineers of the Hyde 
Park Fire Department, hereby submit the following report : 
During the past year the Department has been called out 
twenty-two times, and the fire apparatus has proved itself 
fully efficient (where water could be obtained) for extinguish- 
ing fires. Six hundred and fifty feet of new hose was pur- 
chased in December, making four thousand three hundred 
feet of serviceable hose now in the Department. 

All necessary repairs have been made, and it is with 
pleasure we report that the Department is entirely free from 
debt. The' actual expenses of the current year amount to 
$4,850.88. Accompanying our report you will find a list of 
fires, alarms, causes, &c. We take this opportunity to heartily 
thank each member of the Department for the unity, good 
will and interest taken in responding when they have been 
called upon for duty ; and in conclusion we would add that at 
a small expense water might be obtained from Stony Brook, 
near West street; also on Dana avenue, Fairmount district, 
and in the Sunnyside district. 

Yours, very respectfully, 

H. N. HIBBARD, Chief Engineer. 



W. W. Hilton,

REPORT OF CHIEF QF POLICE. 



To the Board of Selectmen : 

Gentlemen, — I herewith submit my annual report for 
the year ending Dec. 31st, 1875, together with the record of 
criminal arrests and prosecutions : Number of persons ar- 
rested, 144, and were prosecuted for the following crimes : 
Assault and battery, 39 ; drunkeness, 36 ; common drunkards, 
7 ; larceny, 9 ; receiving stolen goods, 4 ; single sale of liquor, 
4 ; keeping open shop on Sunday, 4 ; liquor nuisance, .1 ; as- 
sault on officer, 2 ; adultery, 1 ; fornication, 1 ; arson, 1 ; keep- 
ing unlicensed dogs, 6 ; cruelty to animals, 2 ; disturbing 
peace, 1 ; threats, 1 ; common railer and brawler, 1 ; malicious 
injury to property, 1 ; vagabonds, 16 ; juvenile offenders, 8. I 
would state (what must seem obvious to every one) that owing 
to the large territory to be protected, and there being but one 
patrolman on duty during the night, it is impossible to afford 
protection to a very extensive portion of the town ; and would 
recommend that every person take particular notice that their 
premises are securely fastened before retiring. Quite a num- 
ber of vacant houses have been entered, and all of the lead 
pipe above ground carried away. Probably in most instances 
these depredations have been committed by boys or tramps. 
Crime has decreased in town during the past year, which is 
due in part to the removal from town of some of the worst 
characters. Food and lodgings have been provided 'for 879 
tramps during the year, at an expense of $90, which is a dead 
loss to the town ; and I would recommend that in the future 
all tramps be obliged to perform some labor as remuneration 
for food and lodging. The lock-up is in as good condition as 
can be expected "under the circumstances. Subjoined is a

list of the property contained in and belonging; to the Station 
House: — 16 pairs blankets, 8 mattrasses, 8 pillows, 4 slop 
buckets, 4 quart pots, 7 pairs handcuffs, 3 pairs toggles, 4 billies, 
4 rattles, 2 lanterns. 



Respectfully submitted, 

CHARLES JACOBS, 

Chief of Police.

POOR DEPARTMENT. 



REPORT OF THE OVERSEERS OF THE POOR. 

The Overseers of the Poor respectfully submit the following Report: 

The depressed condition of all kinds of business has caused 
a considerable increase in the expenditures of this Depart- 
ment. Many persons (mostly those of the laboring class) hav- 
ing large families to support are without the means to live. 
It is probable that the majority of the new applicants, through 
causes beyond their control, are in this condition. Many of 
them have no settlements, and in rendering the aid of the 
Town, the Board assume that they would not be justified in 
sending whole families, who are temporarily in want, to the 
State Aims-House. Consequently, while exceeding the ap- 
propriation, the Board have only met the requirements of the 
law and the common dictates of humanity. Although every 
case has been carefully investigated, it is possible that in a 
very few instances imposition may have been practiced. It 
is believed, however, that in this mattar it is better to err on 
the safe side, so that no person shall knowingly be allowed to 
suffer for food or shelter. The Board would recommend that 
some suitable place be provided for persons sick and destitute, 
and also a burial place for the poor. 

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 

The labors of the Board of Health have been apparently 
attended with good results. Various nuisances have been 
abated, and sanitary laws enforced so far as practicable. 
There have been three cases of small-pox, one of which 
proved fatal. The Town, otherwise, has been free from 
epidemic, and the mortality has not exceeded that of previous 
years.

THE POOR ACCOUNT. 



The whole number of families receiving aid from the town dur- 
ing the year 1875 was 56, including 110 children, making 176 
persons. Of this number five were at Taunton Lunatic Hospital ; 
one at Boston and one at Chatham, Mass. Of these 56 families, 
23 have no settlement in any town in the State ; 18 their settle- 
ment is doubtful ; 15 families have their settlements in Hyde Park.

REPORT 



At the close of another year your Committee report that 
the schools of the town have been, on the whole, well con- 
ducted, the teachers competent and faithful, the pupils atten- 
tive and well-disposed, and the general results satisfactory. 
There have been, however, important changes in some particu- 
lars, to which we ask attention. 

SALARIES. 

The salaries of the teachers have, in accordance with the 
unmistakable will of the Town,, been reduced ten per cent., and 
that of the Principal of the High School from $1,900 to $1,600 
per annum. This reduction was reluctantly decided on as 
necessary in view of the financial embarrassments of the 
time, but neither implying reproach to any of the teachers, 
nor without objectionable effects on the schools. The teach- 
er's position should be made as permanent as posssible. He 
must, to do the best work, identify himself with his school, 
and value and cherish its reputation and success as his own, 
But our vicinity to the City of Boston inevitably tends, under 
a great disparity of salaries, to cause restlessness among the 
teachers, and the looking at our schools only as stepping- 
stones to a higher place. If the heart is not in the school, 
some of the strongest as well as best motives to effort are 
wanting. While, on the other hand, the most devoted teach- 
er can hardly be blamed for accepting an invitation to a school 
in the City at a salary much larger than ours. 



84 



MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



It should be remarked that this reduction of salaries has 
not been in operation during the whole of this year, and its 
effect on the school expenses will not be shown till the next 
annual report. The schools are now running on a basis of 
$19,500 per annum, and, as was anticipated, the Committee 
have drawn on the unexpended balance of last year. 

EMPLOYMENT OF MASTERS. 

Last- year the system of employing female teachers in all 
the classes of the Grammar Schools, under the care of one 
general Supervisor, was introduced as an experiment. The 
report of 1874-5 speaks of it as such; and as entered on 
with some misgivings on the part of at least a portion of the 
Committee. It was fairly tried ; the Supervisor, Mr. G. M. 
Fellows, was particularly fitted for his place by previous ac- 
quaintance with the schools and their teachers, and he per- 
formed his duties faithfully and with as much success as the 
circumstances rendered possible. But such is the distance of 
the schools from each other, and so many and so various were 
the questions of discipline and instruction constantly crowd- 
ing on him in the short time he could spend in each school, 
that it was plain to the Committee, after careful scrutiny, that 
this system is not the best for our Town. A master was 
placed in the highest class of each school, and at a small in- 
crease of expense a manifest and gratifying improvement in 
the order in and about the school buildings, and in the 
progress of the classes, began, which will no doubt prove 
permanent. 

PROMOTIONS. 

We think it would be well for parents and pupils to realize 
that promotions from class to class must depend strictly on 



REPORT OF SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 



85 



the attainments of the pupil, and not upon the time nominally 
or actually spent in the school. The standard is not high ; 
and each school suffers, necessarily, from the presence of 
those ill-fitted to go forward in new work, from their igno- 
rance of the old. Such pupils are in the wrong place, to 
their own disadvantage and to the injury of the rest. In some 
cases this backwardness is caused by sickness. Even then, 
the misfortune, which is bad enough for the individual, must 
not hinder all his companions, while he is in no way helped 
by their delay. But probably idleness, irregularity, and other 
reasons for which parents and pupils are responsible, are the 
sources of the trouble. In all cases, a regular standard of 
excellence is essential to our graded schools ; let the pro- 
gress be thorough at every step, and the real advancement will 
be more rapid in the end. This is likewise true of the High 
School, where the diploma must be the pledge of actual profi- 
ciency in study, in the case of every scholar receiving it, and 
not merely the sign of his having been so many years con- 
nected with classes ; or it is hardly worth the fabric on which 
it is written. It is not a farce ; it is a fraud ! 

CO-OPERATION OF PARENTS. 

We respectfully urge the active co-operation of parents in 
visiting the schools, partly for a moral support and encourage- 
ment of the teachers, and also in order that the impulsive pre- 
judices of the children may be corrected by the direct knowl- 
edge and mature judgment of those who can thus influence 
them to the best result ; and we earnestly invite the counsel 
of parents in relation to the schools they may thus be- 
come well acquainted with, in order to remove any actual 
evils, and to make still better what is commendable. 



kt> MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



ATTENTION TO SCHOOL-DUTIES. 



We suggest closer attention to school duties as a chief ob- 
ject of the pupils' life at home. Those duties are not exhaus- 
tive, but they are rather highly salutary to he bodies and to 
the minds of the children. There is no excessive amount of 
study required of any of them, but rather their thoughts 
should be more habitually occupied with school and school 
matters. Failures of health come from causes out of the 
school-room and unconnected with its work. 

While we then realize that an abundance of out-door exer- 
cise and play is essential, we ask whether the hours of sleep, 
the kind and amount of amusement, (especially for the older 
scholars), and the general occupation of their time, may not 
be so arranged for those who are "going to school," as to pro- 
mote, and not to hinder, their habits of study. The pile of 
excuses in every teacher's desk in town, in the High School 
as well as in the Primary classes, induces us to ask the ques- 
tion, whether domestic and family arrangements may not be 
made to conduce to the greater regularity and interest of the 
pupils ; we do not mean study at home, so much as we 
mean avoidance of anything which distracts their attention 
from the work of education, during the short season most of 
them can give to that important object. 

The Committee once more call attention to the absolute 
danger of the crossing of the Providence Railroad at the so- 
called "White's Crossing." At present, the children living 
on the east side of the railroad are constantly exposed to fa- 
tal injury. This is their only way of going to the school they 
are bound by law to attend, and it is astonishing that no life 
has been lost at this place. How much longer these inno- 
cent but heedless children will enjoy immunity from some 



REPORT OP SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 



87 



shocking accident, their parents and our citizens may esti- 
mate. We are aware that in our town, children are abundant 
and money is scarce, but we seriously suggest whether the 
saving in taxes is to overbalance the safety of our boys and 
girls. 

VOCAL MUSIC 

Instruction in vocal music has been given in the High 
School, as well as in the Grammar and Primary classes, by 
Mr. H. J. Whittemore, who regularly devotes half his time 
to the schools. 

DRAWING. 

Drawing is also taught systematically in all the schools in 
town. Let it be remembered that this is not a mere accom- 
plishment of an ornamental character, but that it is of great 
practical utility in almost every mechanical art, and its value 
for every child will not be overlooked. 

EVENING SCHOOLS. 

Evening Schools have been held for sixteen weeks, five 
days in each week, males and females together, in a satisfac- 
tory manner, under the charge of Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Noyes, 
in the Damon School-House, with an attendance of 52 for the 
first month, and of 32 for the whole term ; and under Mr. E. 
De Merritte and Miss A. E. Tower, in the Grew School- 
House, with an average attendance of 13 1-3 for the term. 
The pupils were those deprived of the advantages of the 
day schools, who eagerly improved this opportunity to learn. 
The average total expense has been $37.50 a week. We re- 
peat the judgment of last year's report, that " we think the 
appropriation wisely made and judiciously expended."

SPECIFIC REPORTS. 



HIGH SCHOOL. 



The Committee on the High School respectfully submit 
their annual report : 

The school year began with the old corps of teachers, F. 
W. Freeborn, Principal, and Misses Weld and Button, As- 
sistants. At the close of the Summer Term Miss Weld 
resigned, and Miss S. L. Barnes, for several years connected 
with the Quincy High School, was elected in her place. Miss 
Barnes has proved to be a devoted and successful teacher, 
making entirely good the loss sustained in the retirement 
of Miss Weld. 

Mr. Freeborn tendered his resignation about the first of 
December, to take an Ushership in the Boston Latin School, 
and Mr. W. H. Knight, a graduate of Middlebury College, 
and for several years Principal of the Cohasset High School, 
was elected as his successor. It is too early to speak with 
entire assurance in regard to Mr. Knight's success, but his 
superior qualifications, long and successful experience, and 
the hearty earnestness with which he has thrown himself into 
his new field of labor, give your Committee reason to expect 
the best results. By Mr. Freeborn's resignation, with a day's 
notice, the High School was suddenly thrown upon the hands 
of your Committee. Feeling that a successor should be pro- 
vided at the earliest possible moment, but conscious that in 
a matter of so grave importance it was the part of wisdom to 
make haste slowly, your Committee provided a temporary 
supply, received applications, made investigations, and finally 
elected a permanent teacher during the holidays. 

Most of the pupils of the High School deserve great praise 
for the excellence of their conduct during the interregnum. 
If, a part of the time, there was among a few of its members 
a degree of forgetfulness — to use no harsher term — of the 
great responsibility resting upon them, the cheerful alacrity 
with which they returned to their duties when the new term 
opened, showed a commendable desire to atone for the 
momentary fault. 



REPORT OF SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 



89 



There is a good public sentiment prevailing in this school, 
all the more gratifying in view of the trying circumstances 
through which it has recently passed. So emphatically has 
this subject been brought home to the minds of your Commit- 
tee, they cannot forbear dwelling a moment on the vital im- 
portance of a high-toned public sentiment among the pupils 
of our schools. 

While this is important in all, it is especially so in the 
High School, for the greater maturity of its pupils make them 
more amenable to reason, and they are of necessity more con- 
stantly thrown upon their honor. 

It should be the ceaseless aim of the High School teacher 
to secure this public sentiment, by ever placing before his 
pupils a high standard of motive and action, by constant ap- 
peals to the nobler elements of their natures, to what is 
manly and womanly, and above all by the power of an upright 
and honorable example. What the teacher is, more than what 
he does, has power over the young. Nor are the manners of 
the school-room to be forgotten as an element of government. 
They should be those of polite society. 

The intercourse between teacher and pupil should be 
marked by mutual courtesy and respect. 

We believe that a wise and judicious teacher, supported by 
the parents — for the home must supplement the school in this 
work — can establish such a public sentiment in his school 
in favor of law and order that gross violations of either will 
be well-nigh impossible. In its presence rudeness will be 
shamed into propriety, thoughtlessness into care, and indo- 
lence into activity. 

Nor is this inconsistent with the most unquestioned author- 
ity of the teacher and the equally unhesitating obedience of 
the pupil. 

Moral power is a far more effective means of government 
than physical force, for he who possesses it will govern the 
inward spirit as well as the outward action, will correct the 
misconduct by removing the evil disposition that inspires it. 

In a school so controlled the occasional censure or severity 
will be more effective from the very infrequency of its occur- 
rence. 

The teacher thus entrenched in the esteem of his pupils 
will achieve results no other can — he will achieve that highest 
and noblest work of his profession, the development of char- 
acter as well as intellect. At his deserved reproof the eye of 
the pupil will drop, not in sullenness but in shame, and when 



90

again uplifted to that of the teacher, will flash, not in anger 
but with the light of a noble resolve — to do better. In his 
presence the pupil will be but the vine in the hands of the 
gardener, yielding itself to be pruned of useless and hurtful 
growth, but the marble in the workshop of the Sculptor, wait- 
ing to be chipped into grace and beauty by the master hand. 

Closely connected with this is another duty and privilege 
more especially within the province of the High' School 
teacher, that of shaping to some extent the destiny of his 
pupils. He should act with great caution in attempting to 
lead their minds towards particular pursuits, and in consulta- 
tion with parents ; but sometimes the " bent of genius " is so 
plain to the careful observer that there can be no doubt as to 
the sphere in life it ought to fill. In such a case a timely 
word, a little friendly interest, on the part of the teacher may 
save the mistake of a lifetime. Many a noble career can' be 
traced to the wise counsel and kind encouragement of an ap- 
preciating teacher. At all events it is always safe to seek to 
inspire the young with a laudable ambition to make the most 
of themselves and their talents. 

The tendency of the times in matters of education is 
towards utility, and wisely so ; but in an age of enterprise and 
invention like this, the best talent and the highest culture are 
needed in the mechanic arts and in practical business as well 
as in the learned professions. Does it not seem like a low 
standard of aspiration that during nearly four years past not 
a pupil in our High School has aimed at a higher education 
than is furnished by its limited curriculum ? 

In the Fall of 1872 one of its pupils, George Rollins, en- 
tered Yale College and has taken a high rank in his class. 
But is our High School to rest content on the laurels of its 
one College graduate ? Are there not in it to-day some of 
the elements of distinction in some direction, could they re- 
ceive the proper development? But, perhaps, instead of 
regretting the lack of aspiration for a higher education that 
has characterized the members of the High School in the 
past, we ought rather to lament their indifference to the ad- 
vantages of the High School itself. The falling off in the 
attendance from year to year has been painfully large. Four 
years ago the entering class numbered thirty of both sexes. 
Last Summer at the graduating exercises of the same class 
but three brave young ladies were left to take their diplomas, 
and tell the tale of class disaster. 

To say nothing of the depressing effect such a state of 



Q1 

REPORT OF SCHOOL COMMITTEE. ^ x 

things has on the character and standard of the High School 
itself, what an accumulation of " lost opportunities," for which 
future years will bring to many certain but useless regrets. 

Your Committee would report, in closing, that they have 
frequently visited the High School and that it has generally 
appeared well. The teachers have, in the main, been devoted 
to its interests and successful in their work. 

While there is much to commend, and it may seem invidi- 
ous to specify, your Committee cannot forbear to speak of the 
marked success of the instruction in mathematics. Miss 
Dutton has few equals in this department. 

Respectfully submitted, 

For the Committee.

GREW SCHOOL. 

Teachers — O. 3L Fellows, Master; J. C. Alexander, F. J. Emer- 
son, Lucina Davis, 31. A. Alexander, Genevieve Brainard, 
and 8. S. Lancaster, Assista?its. 

At the opening of the Fall term in September, Mr. George 
M. Fellows, the former Supervisor, was appointed to the 
Mastership of the Grew School. ' But one change has been 
made in the corps of subordinate teachers. Miss Brown 
resigned during the long vacation, and her place was filled by 
Miss Genevieve Brainard. Miss Brainard had shown excel- 
lent tact in the management of little children while substitu- 
ting in the Blake School during the early part of the year. 

Her work has been satisfactory thus far in the Grew. The 
improvement in this school since the return to the system of 
a Master at the head of each building has been marked. 

Disorder in the school grounds, and the still greater disor- 
der and rudeness on the street, so frequently complained of 
before, have entirely disappeared. While the upper divisions 
specially show the effect of the constant presence of a Mas- 
ter, it is perceptible in every room in the building. The 
subordinate teachers have a sense of security, a consciousness 



Q9 

MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

of immediate support in case of need, that render their gov- 
ernment more easy and complete, and their labor in impart- 
ing instruction more successful. The very fact that there is 
at hand power equal to any emergency is a constant restraint 
to the ill-disposed. The principle is an old one that the 
existence of ample authority obviates to a great extent the 
necessity of its use. 

The Grew School has never been in so good a condition as 
it is to-day. The teachers are laborious and highly success- 
ful in their various departments ; the greatest harmony exists 
among them, and last but not least there is the best of feel- 
ing between teachers and scholars.

BLAKE SCHOOL. 
Master, — Henry F. Howard. 

Teachers. — Jennie S. Hammond, Emma A. George, E. L. Oliver, 
E. 8. Beede, 11. 31. Oliver. 

This school is in a highly prosperous condition. One teach- 
er, Miss Katie V. Smith, has resigned during the past year, 
and Mr. Howard, as Master, is in charge of the school ; all of 
the other teachers are the same as last year. This school has 
been fortunate inhaving the same teacher continue from year 
to year, and the best of feeling exists between instructor and 
pupils. H. C. Chamberlain. 



DAMON SCHOOL. 

This school, under the supervision of Mr. Cross, an experi- 
enced and painstaking teacher, has taken a new start in use- 
fulness and profit to the scholars. The general discipline has 
been carefully maintained, and the classes are steadily ap- 
proaching the desired grade. Certain unavoidable drawbacks 
call for unceasing diligence and patient labor on the part of 
the teachers of this District. Many children, either by 
choice or necessity, discontinue their studies, often more than 
once in a term, to work in the factory ; and on their return to 
school extra efforts are required of the teacher in order to 



REPORT OF SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 



93 



pursue the studies called for by the curriculum, with that de- 
gree of thoroughness which may be of profit to the whole 
class. 

The teaching of Misses Bunker and Witherbee in the 
Grammar grades gives proof that the essential requisites of 
successful after-studies are never lost sight of; and it is to 
be regretted that so few scholars are able to continue their 
course as far as the High School. 

The Primary classes are in charge of Misses Crosby and 
Walker, who by their versatile efforts in making study attrac- 
tive to their young pupils, have been rewarded this past year 
by an unusually large attendance. 

W. J. Corcoran. 



GREENWOOD SCHOOL. 

Teachers.— Mr. E. A. Daniels, Master. Assistants, Miss L, A. 
Currier, 31iss H. J. Folsom, Miss M. E. Libby. 

The results obtained in this school, as to the studies pur- 
sued, have been of a very satisfactory character. In point of 
discipline, however, especially in the master's room, there 
would appear to be room for improvement. The term of 
service of the master who was placed in charge of the school 
at the beginning of the year, was marked by great laxity of 
administration, and when, late in the middle of December, it 
was found necessary to remove him, the task of restoration 
was not an easy one. It is, however, progressing favorably 
under the administration of the present principal, who brings 
to the position, experience, earnestness and natural capability ; 
and it now seems probable that before the close of the cur- 
rent year this school will stand as well as any in the town. 

The appearance of the assistants' rooms justifies the high 
reputation which these young ladies already enjoy. 

During the year the approaches to the school have been 
greatly improved by the judicious care of the town authori- 
ties, for which the hearty thanks of the committee and the 
school are due.

EVERETT SCHOOL, (Primary.) 

Teacher,- Mrs. Carrie F. Cutler. 

The condition of- this school for the year has been perfectly 
satisfactory. 

Mrs. Cutler is a model teacher ; and the parents of her 
pupils may well rejoice in the faithful instruction, the careful 
attention to the children's health, and the judicious and loving 
influence which this school affords.
