This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover.

MAYOR'S ADDRESS. 

Oextlesikn of the CiTV Council: 

A» represpntative of the citizens of Fall River we begin 
to-day the performance of our official ilutieo. By uur acts 
we shall be judged, and conae<)uently we sliould strive at all 
times to reflect the will of the people. General welfare 
rather than penwinal interest or sectional gain should be our 
only niin. The proof of our sincerity can only be shown by 
le^^islation that provides for the greatest good for tlie greatest 
number. 

The financial condition of the city demands the utmost 
<Mution in arranging for the expenditure of public money 
tluring this year. Every measure carrying with it the ex- 
liemltture of money should receive the most serious thought. 
Public necessity should be our guide ami retrenchment, 
whenever possible, should be practised. The City Charter 
provides that ex[>ensc8 in any municipal department shall 
not exceed its appropriation. This provision should be 
observed. The custom uf overdrawing accounts should no 
longer be tolerated. 

Business methods and business principles should be ap- 
plied to all departments. Any unnecessary ex|>enditure of 
money should cease and cttniplete records showing the 
expenses of the various departments should be available on 
request. Our limited borrowing capacity warns us of the 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



10 MAYORS ADDKRSS. 

nv<-C8t4itj' of the niout rigid eironumy. Serious thought^ 
intelligent action and c<>-o|i«nitii)n will ulitnin in a mcnoniv 
the desired result. 

Fr NANCE. 

The gross bonded debt of the city .lanunry 1, IKIO, whs 
t4,f<77, 250.00. Of this amount *I(i7,0(K).O0 were reiiuid 
during the year. New loans were negotiated in liilO aggre- 
gating »l,lliy,500.0(t. The net city debt January 1 , 1911. 
was $4,132,453.15. 

The gross funded debt of the Water Dejiartinent .Jan- 
uary 1, I'JIO, was $1,250,000.00. There has t>een no 
chnnge in this debt during the year. Sinking funds to the 
creilitof thisdebt January 1, 1911, were $430,951. ,17. The 
net water debt, January 1, 1911, was $«1».048.43. 

The interest and tlie amount to be paid into sinking 
funds or otherwise during the current year will be $488,- 
419. (>0. If the valuation of the property in the City of 
Fall River remains the same as in IHIO more than twenty- 
five cents on every dollar raised by taxation will be ex(»en<led 
in the payment of these loans and interest. For interest 
alone $224,700.00 will l»e ne<'e»sarj*. This is ex<'hisivo of 
the water debt which is cared lor from rc\enne fhnn the 
Water Department. 

I believe that the time has come when we must ackniiwl- 
edge that our liabilities requiring as they do the payment of 
such a large amount in interest have reached a [mint where 

11 slo|i should be made. 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



MAYOK8 AI>DUE8fl. 



TAXATION. 



On April I, lillO. the ns^esaetl valuation of the property 
in tliis i-ity was $112,488,520. 00 and the rate per tliousand 
*I«.70. In view of tlie fact that Fall River has no income 
from bellprment tax us many cities have, it will be seen 
that this rate in not a hi^h one. However, the tax rate is 
no >rui(lti of the iroat of municipal government. The prac- 
tice of bonding the city for a term of years to meet current 
ex|><>nsea, a tniiisaction in which only the interest and a 
small part of the principal is demanded in the annual tiix 
wari'ant, hides from the tax payer the actual cost of govern- 
ment, and indeed adds to it the amount of interest which 
must be |)aid. This eum might l>e saved if we were able to 
pay 88 we go. Under our statutes we are limited to an ex- 
|H;nditure for current expenses of not more than $12.00 per 
thousand of the assessors' average valuation of the taxable 
pniperty for the three precedinij years. Many cities have 
l>een obliged to secure from the Legislature the right to ex- 
ceed thif limit, and indeed, sound business ))rinciples would 
Hcem to justify this course. If $12.00 per thousand were 
reffoired eome years ago when the coat of labor and material 
wHtJ iiiiieh less than it is to-day, and if the cost of govern- 
ment has increased, as was inevitable, there is some justice 
in the clniin that the limit of $12.00 per thousand should be 
ink;reascd at least to a sum which would eijual the difference 
in the increased cost of goveniment. This change might l)e 
further advocated when we reflect that the present limitation 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



MAVOBS ADDKRSS. 



does not limit our expend itu rue but does drive us to the 
practice of bonding; for a term of years with its xdded cost 
for interest. 

So the question nRturally arises whether it woidd not lie 
better and wiser to petition the Legislature for the right to 
exceed the present limit and raise by taxation the sums 
necessary to pay our current expenses. This is a euggesti(n> 
whieh I res[)ectfully recommend to you for your serious c(m- 
sideration . 

APPROPRIATIONS. . 

In making up all appropriations for the coming year I 
desire to suggest to your Honorable Board the consideration 
of a plan whereby the lixc4l expenses of each department will 
be pro|>erly cared for before proiision is made for any new 
work. 

In departments such as scavenger and street cleaning, 
provision should be ma<le to properly care for this work 
throughout the whole year. Any request for an appropria- 
tion looking (o any extended improvements should not be 
granted unless you believe that the financial condition of the 
city warrants the same. 

A considerable saving might be made in the purchase ot 
some of our supplies, such as coal, hay and grain, if the 
various departments using these commodities would prepare 
a statement showing the amount and kind needed to carry 
on the work of the several de|>artments and these statements 
be preecnteil to the Superintendent of Public Buildings and 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



MAYOR e ADDRESS. 13 

bida lor the tuinie called tor by hitn. This would elitninale 
the practice of the aevertil departments buying in emnll 
amounte. 

I do not urge upon you parsimony, for this would be 
but anotlier extreme. We should keep in mind the city and 
its importance as a prosperous industrial center to which we 
should endeavor to attract by conser^'atite methods other 
mnnufiicturiDg and business interests. It is my firm belief 
that this policy of conservatism for a term of two years will 
pntve to be of the greatest value in checking waste and will 
gain that credit and confidence so necessary to a live, grow- 
ing, industrial city. 

PUBLIC HEALTH. 

The protection of the public health is of the greatest 
importance. New laws each year concerning this impose 
u{>on us additional obligations and expenses. Great im- 
provements have been made in this department in recent 
years, but much remains to be done. 

The death rate of our city is not a standard by which 
our efforts to protect the public health should be judged. It 
has been shown that one-half of the deaths are of children 
under five years of age from causes which in many instances 
might have been prevented if proper care under sanitary 
conditions were provided at home. This is partly a matter 
of education of parents, but much good might be accom- 
plished if a tenement house inspector were ap[H>inte<l to pre- 
vent overcrowding of tenements. 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



14 SIAYOKIS ADDltKSS. 

More care should be ghen to the collection of swill and 
(lisposnl of light waste material it the Oifferent dumps. 

Tlie eimitiiry station at the north side of City Hall i^lioidd 
Im! removed. 

KKLIKF DKPAKTMENT. 

The expenses of tlils department tor the past yeiir were 
tll.'>,0()0.(tO. 

Much may be done In iinpi-iive some of the branelieti of 
thiii department. A close investigation of all applicants tiir 
aid should be made, if we are to attain the results that are 
so much desired. It is advisable that the City 8tore and 
Dispensary be kept open at times that will best serve the 
Hiiplieants for aid. A earaful business |>olicv should obtain 
in these branches and also at the City Farm. Kniployees 
should work in harmony and any condition other than this 
should be remedied. 

PUBLIC BUILDINGS. 

The small appro|)riation placed at the disjiosal of this 
department last year did not permit of many necessary i-c- 
pairs to onr public buildings. It is not ee<momy to allow 
them to decay when by the Judicious exjienditure of n little 
money each yenr they can be kept m good eondition. H 
tliesc buildings m-e to Iw continued longer in servii-e these 
repaii-s should be made.

The sanititn- oonfliltone of the N. B. Borden Sch<K>l are

(■(in)|ilaint from parents ami cilizena. This condition should 
he remedied at once. Many other schooU of the older type 
dhould l>e given more cure. 

The City HhII has heen frequently reporte<l to Iw in need 
of extensive repairs. I believe thnt its condition warrantB 
n Irtrper appropriation for thia work this year. 



mend thnt no new buildings be erected thitt year 
exce]tt those for which loans ha^e already been placetl and 
tlmt wi>rk on these be commenced as early as possible. 

PARKS. 

1 rei^'ommend that the Canal St. plny-finiund, located in 
the heart ol a densely populated section, be develope<l as 
siH»n MS [Htssible. A small outlay will provide for the instal- 
lation of n few features and will amply pru^ ide for the de- 
mands of the children and parents in that section, and will 
lie of iiiestimuble hygenic value. 

Waste places at the intersection of two or more streets 
s1k>u1<I be treated in the same manner as Durfce Green at 
the junctitm of Highland Avenue and High Street. This 
woiiM be iDex{)ensive and improve greatly the api>earan(:e of 
the l<»oa]ity. The Maplewoo*! and Eastern Avenue Parks 
lire in process oi' deielojimcnt and work should be carried 
furwani as rapidly as means will allow. The North Park, 
South Park and Ruggles Park arc in a more advanced statu 
of development, although nmch remains t<) lie done. 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



MAYOK8 ADUKE88. 



POLICE DEPARTMENT. 



In conDection with this department I believe there 'm one 
rocommendation to be made. The cell room in the Central 
Police Station «hould be remodelled without delay. Men, 
women and children are confined in ccHh in one Urge room, 
within hearing of language that at times is vicious, but ini- 
imssiblc to restrain. The modem nieihoil of treating pcr- 
Hona accusetl of crime is WiHerent from what it was genera- 
tions ago. For this reason I urge upon your Board the 
immediate necessity of tliis inipi-ovenient, so that the pris- 
oners may be kejit sejiarate ami be treated in a humane 



FIKE DEPARTMENT. 

We have reason to feel that this importjint eity tlcpart- 
ment is well managed and e<jul)>] ed and compares hivonibly 
with that of any other eity in the state. 

Ecimomy for future maintenance will be made possible 
by placing all wires of the system under gi-ound. Additional 
fire alarm boxes should l>e installed in a nuniU'r of places as 
recommended by the Board. 

PUBLIC LIBRARY. 

The library now numbers upwai'd of »8,(K)0 volumes and 
has 22,834 canl holders. The b*M)k circulation tor the year 
was o\er 20(),()()0 volumes. The increasing jiittronage of 
this very important institution is ample |>n>of that its servii*

M ap])recinte<l nnil its needs emphasized. If the finiinecs of 
the fity will |)erniit, it would be well to consider nn exten- 
»i(in of the oerviee to other pnrts of the city. 

In paesing it \a well to note thiit in <jver thirty years this 
department hwe not exceeded «t any time its npproprintion. 
This is deseirinp i>i comineiidHtion. 

W'IRKS. 

The In8|)ector of Wires reports his innbility to properly 
enforce the rules of his department through lack of enabling 
ordinnDces. If this dejmrtment is to fill the place that it \» 
intended to fill, it should have the necessary legal means to 
^io so, or otherwise be abolished. Its importance as a meam^ 
of l»etter fire pn>tectiun and regulation of poles and wires is 
acknowledged. 

IMPROVEMENT OF QUEQUECHAN RIVER. 

The Resenoir Ctmimi8si<in has conBidere<I in nn exten- 
sive way the necessary conservation of our water supply both 
for domestic and manufacturing purixises. 

In a printed report Engineer Arthur T. Safliird sets forth 
the necessity of this improvement if we are to preserve our 
supply of pure water tor domestic purjK)se« and to reme<Iy 
(he unsightly and unsanitary conditions that exist along the 
shores of this river during the summer months. This is of 
the utmost importance not only from a sanitary point of 
view, but also on account of the great loss sustained by i'iui- 
tuuea »long the shore by reason of the lack of a sup|>ly of 
c.ooi water. This project, if accomi>lis}ie<l, will not only

18 mayor's ADI>HE88. 

protect our pure water supply iind save our factories from 
"Toat losses, but will enable us to redeem a very large tract 
of land. 

I reoommeud that this matter be cc>ni>itlere<l by your 
Honorable Boanl and thitt public hearings be given at onue, 
cither under your direction by the Rcser^-nir Comuiissinn or 
yourselvee, in order that the various intcrestij involved and 
the citizens generally may clcEirly understiind its [lurposos. 

HIGHWAYS. 

The work of thia department, embracing as it does sev- 
eral importHut dtvisiima, reijuirea a large |>ortion of thu city's 
revenue. The cost »)f repairing the streets thia year will be 
considerable. For the past two years the department has 
been without funds about half the lime, and uoless stmiething 
is done this year many of our streets will be beyoutl repair. 

In the improvement of streets a system should he fol- 
lowetl of impniviug a street or streets in one loeality at a 
time, rather than a small section of a sti'cet in ditlerent parts 
of the city. This work should be done irreepeclive vt' ward 
lines. 

The princijial streets of the city should first be cured tor. 
South Main Street between Bedfoixi and Pleasant Streets 
should be repaired at the earliest opjM»riunity, as its present 
i^imdition is no credit to us. 

Paving should Ik continued this year at |H)ints where it 
was discontinued last yenr. Streets where hca\y traffic 
wears the macmlam <ir other surface ahould Ih! given thin 
jiunnanent iiu|»roveHient. 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



MArO«S ADDKBSS. lil 

I strongly urge your Board in making Rppnipriations this 
year to so pn)vi(le that our streets niHy be kept in n sanitniy 
rundition. Nut only should the pKved streets be cared for 
during the day by the patrol systeiu, but it seems to nie that 
sweeping them by muchine twice a week at night and nights 
prec«ling holidays would be a distinct improvement. 

Along these lines I think it would be well if a movcmeni 
WHS inaugurated among the teaohera in the public schools 
cautioning the children against throwing waste paper in the 
public thoroughfares. Street watering through the summer 
and ilry season ie necessary and while paved streets are pro- 
vided for, it would be well t<) consider whether or not an oil 
or tar preparation used on other than paved surfaces would 
not in the end be far more economicnl and satisfactory. 

The extension of the sewers of the city should be so 
arranged that the densely populated sections should have the 
neiM'ssary improvement. The laying of granolithic walks is 
a distinct permanent improvement, and as the cost to the 
city is only half of the cost of the work us large an a[ipropri- 
ation as possible should be made. 

PUBLIC SCHOOLS. 

With the fifty-two schools now in use as public schools 
this department has been able to |)ro\ide sufficient room f<)r 
tlie attendance of pupils. Although a crowded condition 
exists in some schools this will be relieved by the completion 
of those now in process of erection. When the John J. 
McDonough School is ready for occupancy it will be possible 
to close the Anawan and Canal Street Siihools. 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



I woulit rcrinuDicml that ihe Anawnn Street School be 
lined as hca(]<)UHrtciij for the School DefMrtmeDt. This will 
relieve tlic present eniwded eonditioii of tliia Ilopariiiicnt 
nnd provide a iiiuch more convenient pliicc. The CHniil 
Street School and the land connected thci-CH-ith should be 
lidded to the land now owni'd hy the city next north ot this 
Hchool and use<l tor park jturposes. A new eehoul in the 
southern section uf the city ia demanded to relieve the 
erowded condition of the Gourge B. Stone, Laurel Lake and 
IJoweu Street Schoidij. The money pnivided for this school 
heinf^ now available, tihoidd t>e used as early tia possible. 

TEXTILE CENTEXMAL. 

This year marks a very important event in the histoiy of 
onr <'ity. One hundred years ago the textile industry was 
first intr(idu<-e<1 here. In this peri<»l of time it has grown to 
such an extent fliat Fall Kivcr now oaupies the front rank. 

Sini'o we have profited by the eimrage atul perse \<' ranee 
of the pitmcevs in thiij industry this inipoitant dale should 
not be allowed to pass unnoticed. Any nioveincnt that will 
have (or its object the recognition of the anniversary of this 
event should receive our most earnest snppoil, 

CONCLUSION. 

In your fiiiure consideration of the various city depart- 
ments it should l>e your endeavor to provide for each accord- 
ing to its needs and as far as our means will |>ennit. 

We have a light lo ask for eo-oiieraliim from all depart- 
UK-nts and should receive it, and <mr eltbrts lo give our city 
a }iiisiness-likc and economical admin isl rat ion sliould merit

tor ua the loyulty of the citizens. Let us not be luoved 
i'nnn our desire for economy. If it involves the temporary 
misiiensiun of im|irovemcnt8, compensation will be found in 
the fact that the interests of the people are subserved. Our 
city cannot l>e held back in its projtress by conservative 
action on our part. 

I a«8iire you that I will do all in my pou'er to assist and 
co-operate with you and the various departments in order 
that the desired end may be attained. The past history of 
Fall Kiver should fill us with optimism for its future. We 
should have faith in ourselves and in the people whose rep- 
resentatives we lire and in the city in which we live. In any 
action that we may take let us not he moved by criticism if 
wc finnly believe that our actitm tends to the improvement 
of our city. Let us look with confidence on the task before 
un and perform our duties conscientiously and intelligently.

2fi8 ANNUAL REPORT 

BUILDINGS. 
The Board hwa ciintiiiiied the policy i»f keeping the 
buildings of the department in good repair as the money »[>■ 
propriateil by the city government would permit. During 
the year, a new lioiler for heating purpoflea had to he in- 
stalled in the fire station at North Main and Brownell streets, 
the old boiler having been condenmed by the State Inspector 
of Boilers, The new fire station at Maplewood was tuvnwl 
over to the Boanl July 7th, JDIO, by the Su]»enn ten dent of 
Public Buildings. As no direct np{)n)priation had i>een 
provided for fumit<hing this station, this hhs been paid for 
from our current e]ci>ensc account and the station is practi- 
eally eijiiipped and ready to be plaeed in conimis.^ion. 
APPAKATIT.S. 
The condition of the nppaiiitus of the department is gotMl. 
Karly in the year a poiitract was made for a 50 H, P. Auti)- 
mohile of the Po)>e-I[artford make, to be used ha a (-omi)ina- 
tiun hose and ehemieal machine in the place of horae <lrawn 
wagon located in the house of Hose No. 8 on South Main 
street and is now in eonindssion. Our e.\[>erience with the 
automobile uacd by the Auxiliarj' Scjuad ftjr rhc past two 
years has been very satisfairtory — the maintenance eiwt being 
leas than horses and the iriereased efficiency in getting to fires 
(jiiii'kly especially in the outlying districts, is a strong argu- 
ment for adding moi-e motor driven ap|iaratita to the depart- 
ment as speedily as cin'umstanc-es will jtennit. 

A spare hose wagon has been e<juipi)ed with a new 3.i 
gallon clieniieal tank and is now complete and i-eady to \»- 
placed in service at the MapIewocMl station.

BOARD OF FiaB COMJIISSIOXERS. 2()!l 

A new boiler has been iimtalled on Engine No. & located 
in the extreme etiatern part of the city on Pleiieant street, the 
old one having been condemned by the State InB|iect<)r of 
Builfrtt and this engine in nnw practically as good as new- 
Several picL'CB of apparatus which need painlin^r and varnish- 
ing could not be done this year owing to the limited appro- 
priation. This must be done as early as {Kisitible during ibe 
eoming year to preserve the npiiaratus. 

HOSE. 

In January of this year, an iippropriation of $2,500-00 
was made for the purchase of hose and 1,;)()U feet of three 
inch and 1,000 feel of 2^ inch hose bought. Aa no hose was 
purchased in lUOl), and 3,;^00 feet becaiiic unfit for use in that 
year, H6 well as 1.000 feet have become unfit for use in lOUt 
it will be necessary to ask for an a|>propriation for the pur- 
chase of hose, as in addition to our losses mentioned above, 
it will be necessary to purchase at least 1,500 feet to cqnip 
the wagon to be stationed at Maplewooil. 
HORSES. 

There arc now fi4 horses owned by this de|»artmcnt, 
three having been purchased during the jear to replace those 
that were unfit for use. It will be ncccssHry to purchase 
some this coming year, as sinne of the horses now in use are 
old and really unfit for fire service.

working well.

344 REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF FIRE ALARM. 

OVERHEAD SYSTEM. 

Four miles of thie system whieh was in poor romlition 
has beeo rebuilt with new, and two hundred (200) cross 
arms changed. At the present time the wires of this systoiii 
are placed on the top gain of all poles. By an arrange- 
ment between the Fall River Electric Light Co, and this 
department hereafter the Electric Light Co. will use the top 
gain and run our lines below them, as it is considered much 
safer for us to have our wires below those carrying high 
voltage, and these changes will be carried along as rapidly as 
possible. 

Very respectfully,

STltEKT WATERING. 



For 138 <In_v8 during; the year the department with its 
!t|inrikling eiirts has attempted h> combat with the dust 
iiiiiHancc. How well it succeeded need not be related here. 
Thin method of fighting dust on other than paved streets ie 
<il)soli'te, especially where the department with its equipment 
cjin t>nly water the streets twice a day. At ttmoe it would 
seem like a waste of public money to undertake tlie work 
for dust is blowing on the nwdways watered in less than 
half an hour and anyone would think the street had never 
lieen watered only from the heavens. I strenuously recom- 
mend that pn)visioDs he made to use more modem methods 
in the supression of dust. The electric car sprinklers gave 
good service 4luriug the season on the streets in which there 
are street car rails. 

OILING OF STREETS. 

A number of our citizens took advantage of the order 
jmssed early in the year which allowed the department to oil 
what streets it deemed advisable, providing persons who peti- 
tione<1 for snch work paid one-half the cost. The department 
treated with a tar oil secured from the local gas company. 
2H,253 square yards of streets at a cost of $.0293 per 
wjuare yaiti. When the money for highway imrjtoscB was 
exhausteil permission was granted to seieral parties to treat 
the rctadway in front of their premises with the same 
material at their own expense. Experience baa taught the 
department that one application of this dust layer is not 
sufficient to provide against the dust for the entire season, 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



STREET DEPARTMENT. 3"»1 

but that there should be two applicntione. The ijecoml ap- 
plicatioii should be given a month or six weeks iifter the first 
treatmeut. It could be done at a slight reduction in the 
cost for the expense of preparing the street and the (piantity 
of oil used would be much leas. 

One citizen oiled the street in front of his pi-eniises at 
his own expense with another preparation but the depart- 
ment feels that the results obtained were no better tliaii thone 
achieved from that used by the city. 

Early in October the Standard Oil Company demon- 
strated a product of their company on Durfee street fi-om 
Turner street southerly a distance of about T/iO feet but a 
very short time after the sireet was treated the dust was 
flying. 

I would recommend the treatment of all our stri'cts to 
some oil preparation and the withdrawal of all watering cart.i 
except where the streets are pared. An appropriation for 
this work equal to that expended for street watering wouhl 
go a long ways toward the oUing of such 1 1 ion i ugh fares as 
are now watered, 

HEPAIRING BRIDGES. 

Extensive repairs were necessary on the Shide's Fcrrj- 
bridge. The planking on the deck had become worn out, 
necessitating the replanking of both the roadway and walk. 
Here and there a stringer was reinforced that showed signs of 
decay. This work was done in coujunction with the Old

The necessity of laying croaaings across a street is one 
matter that the public is very far from being a unit on. The 
[KHleatrian derives much pleuaure in seeing a crossing laid by 
which he can croaa the street in bad weather without wetiing 
his feet, while the automobiliat frowns down upon it, for he 
i in mediately makes a mental note of another jolt in life's 
journey over our highwaya. Six new ones have been laid dur- 
the year at a cost of $(!65.7J, and one waa replaced and 
eight reset at a cost of $200.40. The fblhiwing ia the coat 
and location of the new ones laid :

STREET DRPAHTMENT. 



GRADIXG. 



Jepson street between Fieldcn and Knight streets wss 
worked to grade. Ledge and boulders were encountered. 
The loHin was used to fill in the low places and the stone 
wtu carted to the crusher. The greatest cut was 20it inches 
while the greatest fill was only 10 inches. 

Stewart street between Highland avenue and Robeson 
street was brought to the required grade. There was com- 
paratively little cutting and filling on this street. At one 
|)oint there was a cut of IH inches and at another a fill as 
^reat as 16 inches. The soil was a blue marl, and many 
roots and stumps of trees had to be removed. 

Dwelly street between Montaup and Laurel streets has 
been filled in during the year as (»ccasioD8 for buying dirt 
from contractors presented themselves. The street is by no 
means to grade and will need much more filling, which is 
very scarce in this locality. 

Lonsdale street between Kwlman and Nashua streets 
which had been partiallv graded years ago was brought to 
its proper grade when the department laid curbing on the 
street, the filling being purchased from contractors. 

^L-lrtine street Irom Kerr to Porter streets was partially 
graded during the year, the average cut from Kerr to 
Ficlden streets Ireing about two feet thn)ugh a ledge. At 
the terminus at Porter street there was a cut of almost three 
feet. A number of boulders had to be blown. The stone

In connection with this work, it became iiecessarv to 
study the conditions existing in South Wariippa pond and 
in (iuetjueehan river at the pivsent time; also tlie ixsult to 
these bodies of water if the plans as proposed for main-

The liridjri's tluon^liout the city are generally in t«ir 
ciinditiiin, and sliould (.'idt for no great outlay the couiinf; 
year, although come of them sJiould reeeive attention. 

The inin work on ull the bridges (<hou1d be [jainted, 
dome of the fencing being badly nieited and going to dei^ay. 

The wearing aurfaee of the Viaduct tthould be resurfaeetl 
in plH<^«, and chimgen made to render the fencing safe. 

If tiie jmiposed {dans for the iuiprovenient of Que<|ue- 
chan river are approved and carrif-d into eti'eet, the bridge at 
Plymouth avenue will l>e rebuilt and its length greatly re- 
duced. If thiH iw done, an iron bridge should replace tlie 
present wooden structure. 

Plans have been prL'|iarciI by the niilroad com[>!Uiy for 
llu! abolition of the grade crowaing on the Watuppa branch 
at Querpu'chan dtrcct. Should ihece jihiui^ be oirricd out, 
a new bridge across Quequcchan river must be conatmcte*!

nine years of |>crsistent eftbrt. until now it is alniOHt univer- 
willy acknowledged that our Park and Playgn>und system 
is a benefit to h11 dashes and ajrcs of the uitizena. A very 
considci'ahle amount of work Una l>een accompli shed thin 
year, and nmaidemide more undertaken, tbe accomplisiimenr 
of which will extend over into the following season. 

At the Sonth Park, iron feiseitifi; has been erectcti along 
Middle Street from South Main Stn-et to Hniadway. and 
along Broadway from Middle Street to Brmltbnl Aveniii-. 
Tliis completes the tencing of the South Park Plavfrroimd. 
thus foi-ciii}r those who cross and re-cioss this tract to enter 
anil leave on the walks, and has, to a considerable degn'e. 
eliminated the unsightly paths caused by continual eroi'!^ 
cutting. Gs{>ecially is this damage to the turf notieeahle in 
the fall after the grass has stopped growing, Kn<l while the 
Board would prefer to spend the money for other purposes, 
ihey lelt ihe ere('ting of these fences to Ik? a necessity. 

Granolithic wnlkg have been laid at .Soutii Park itnd 
Knggles Park. These walks were laid at points where it 
wars considered most advautiigeous. At Scmth Park the 
walk Iwmlering Bradford Avenue Parkway was laid tu 
granolithic, and the wewlerly walk Ix.itlering the South Park 
<u) Broadwiiy, This walk being ten feet wide was made

At Rugglea Park tlie main thoroughfure fnmi the 
iiorthcnst corner at Ijtvcust Street, ilingiinally ncniss the 
I'ai'k to the ci)rner of Pine and Seahurj' Streets, vras hiid 
to <.mm(>liliue. 

At South Park, granolithic gutters were hiid hoixlering 
both sides of Bradfonl Avenue Parkway. Catch basins 
were built at frequent intennU, and the surface water thns 
eolleeted ccmveyed to the public sewers. lietweon these 
gutters the siufaee of tlic Parkway was macadamized, and 
will present a neat and pleasing appearance as it stretches 
awav beneath the canujiv of green furnished by the over- 
spreading elm trees on either side. 

The long-felt need for toilet fa<-ilitics was partially met 
by the construction of a Women's Comfort Station. This 
bnihiing is situated near the comer of Broadway and Middle 
Street, just south of the Cbildren's Wilding Pmd. It is 
designee! to eombine retiring and toilet rooms for women, 
and has accommodations for the sale of refreshments in the 
westerly end of the building. The piaz/a entirely sur- 
rounds the building, and furnishes shelter and a fine outlook 
over the Wading Pool and the surrounding Park. In the 
bflscment is the steam healing apparatus, an automatic giis 
water heater, coal bin, and the storage for the smaller tools 
use<l by the workmen on the Park.

drives with hand sprinklers. This method was adopte<l 
first, heeaucie liy so doing a unitonn distribution was aHciire<i, 
piwenling it standing in pools, and second, l>ec.-uise no 
particle of oil was allowed to touch the grass borders wliiirh, 
if it had happened, would have kilUni every spear of grass 
it touched. This method is more costly to spread than ihc 
usual method of sprinkling earts. but it was eonsidei-ed

make a small saving in first cost and leave unsightly |>iiols 
of oil standing in the drives to 1h> tnicktKl over the <;rass, or 
to sprinkle oil beyond the drive onto the grass and kill it, 
thus leaving unsi}>^itiv patches of dead grass on the bordei's. 

Several formal Hower beds were set out in all the Parks 
this year. It is the intention of the Hoanl to gradually

During tlie year the Boinxl of Aldermen authorized the 
Hoatiug of a loan of t50,000 for general park purposes.

The bridge has been contemplated for many years, but 
nothing definite has been aeeoniplisbcil until this year. His 
Honor the Mayor procured fiom the Railroad Company an 
agreement whereby they would pay one-half the cost of the 
bridfre and its approaches up to the amount of tlO,000, In

the Kailnmd Enfrinecrinj; Dcimrtmenl and the Psirk B<i;ird, 
tlie KiiilrcKid Company to award ihe (-ontmct. 

Preliminary' pliins for a ste'.'I gird<T brid<re were siib- 
niirtid by the Riiilroiid Company, but the ISourd felt that 
a stet'l bridjre will need eonstant attention to jirevetit rorrii- 
Kion owin^ to its proximity to the sah water and tlie 
dc(*truetive effects of i^leam locomotive exhamttti. Another 
iniporlant objection is the ufrly iippenraiiee of a jjinler bridfre 
in !i park where its appearance dhoutd be made to harmonixe 
with the surroundin<rs as tnucli aci possible. 

Tbe BoanI have sufrjr^sted a reinforced ccmerete ar<'li 
of about fiO feet span, f) led rise, and 4,') tict widtli. This 
was aeeepted by the Rnih-oad Company and the Board are 
at present invet^tifratinfr the various desifjns ami methods <n 
I -on St met ion on oimerete arches, with the view of obtaining 
a strui'ture that shall embody all the features of ornamenta- 
tion desired, and be sufficiently strong and durable for tbe 
nunimum of eowt. The actual constructiim of the bridge 
will be ihine next spring, and it is hoped will be opened for 
use by June first of next year. 

The North Park, for the im|)rovcment of which one- 
half of the *r>0,(KM> loan is set aside, was designed by 
Olmsted Brothers, of Itrookline, Mass. The portion of 
the Park already imprt)ved was thme in 1904 and VM)h 
under contnict and from designs by Olmsted Hrofbers, the 
design for [lie whole Park being done at that time.

In our 190^ experiment, the oil was s|ii-e»(I uyum level 
etiirt'Hccs i>nl_v, and no opjKntunitv whs jjiveii to study iti* 
etlt'ct iii)i>n a steep grade. This (Wmtim, however, (lit- 
ehiince presented Itself, and a nwnst a<freoal>Ie surprice wiic 
developed, that of an easy uoliition of the problem of pre- 
venting hojivv washouts, which , hud become an annual 
occurance. Not until late in tltc season did tiie water pen- 
etrate the thin layer of oil to any extent, aud then only 
niter three successive temgiests; the oil actually shedding 
water as if from the hack of a duck, 

Inununity fiiiiu wainliouts can hanlly be ox|>ect(.il, yet 
the oil biiB proved itself a wonder-worker in this respect, 
and as a labor saver, it is beyond criticism. Not once 
during the entire seiisim have the avenues been sprinkled. 
Tlie watering-cart h-is been strictly out of cotinnission . 
This is rn deciiled coninifl to its foniier daily ntunda. 
throughout the entire season, and its attentlant heavy cost. 

In another way the oil slioweti itn worth. The annual 
lalHir account for cleaning, wee<ling and sweeping the paths 
and avenues, vilncli has always l>een the largest item of 
expense upon the cemeterj's annual pay mil, has been 
almost eliminated, that of sweeping being pi-aetieally the 
onlv expense involved for the niahitcnance <it' the avenues

PKKPPrrCAL CAKK. 

To plaee a lot untler [lerpetual can-, a certain sum vi' 
money is de|H>sited with the City Treasurer. This snm 
varies according to the ainouut of work, etc., a hit owner 

dcsiivs to have accomplished on his lot each year. The 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



PARK COMMISSIONERS. 4!l!l 

miuiinum sum should be one liumlred dullarti, however email 
the lot may be. Interest, at the rate of nix per cent, per 
Hnnuiii, w alhtwecl upon tine dejxiHit, to be used upon tht' 
U)t ii8 the owner may designate. If, for inslance, one 
hundred doUarg wiie deposited for a h)t, the annual interest 
would amount to six dollars ; thih amount would, for the 
uvcruge-sizeil hit, he suffipient to keep it mowed, fill one 
vnse if doniHnde<l, and do such other work as the money 
would allow. 

The term "Perpetual (lare" has lieen fimnd to be very 
tuisleading in the jiaet and many wrong impressions are 
previilent at present, Correetly translated it reads : not 
everithing a lot owner expects, or enlls tor, u|)on his lot, 
but what can be given him for the money available. 

Persons who intend |>Iaeing thoir lots under this ayslen) 
should first eonsult with the superintendent, giving him full 
partieulars, of the work, ete., deeirwl to be done ejich year 
uiK)u their lots. After taking into con8iderati(m the ("ize ol 
the lot and the 'coKt of the labor necessary U> cover all 
denmnds, the amount to )>e deposite<l is easily figured. A 
lot onee placed under this system devolves anil ever after 
i-cinains under the care of the eenietcry officials. 

The satisfaction thus assured by the reni()val of the 
responsibility for the loyal care of a lot will he a source of 
unceasing comfort to the owner. At [ircsent there are over 
six hundred lots under perpetual care and this number is 
ra|iidly increasing. Some idea of the extent of the growth 
of the perpetual care fund can be gathered by consulting the 
list which follows this report.

Report of the Superintendent of Parks. 

Fall River, Mass., December 31, IIIKI. 
Thi- Bowl of P'trk Coiiimis^hti'Tx : 
Gentlemen : — 

I hereby uiibmit my annual rejiort of work done on the 
I'uhlie Parks for the year ending Decemlier 31, 1010. 

All work {>ertaining to the care of the Parks has been 
done this year us in other years, and this report may lie 
divided into sections to represent every imjioi-tant liranch of 
the work, fls follows; 

a[aintenaxc;e. 

The moat imjwitant features of maintenance arc grass- 
('uttin<;, externiinatioii of destructive insect pests, repairing 
wiislioiils and cleanin<^ catcli Imsins, and the work necestunr}' 
to keep the Parks l<K>kin<r neat and onlerly, such as picking 
pn|>er, trimming; the e<lf^e8 of the sod, pHintin<r fences and 
biiildinjrs, and weeding. 

The work neressary to keep all tlie appliances in (joimI 
working onler, as hiwn mowers, ice planers, etc., calls tor 
considerable time and some exiicnfC. In the case of the 
lawn mowers, it must lie ciinsidcrcd that thev nm ni'AxX

fliours per tLiy, and six days per week, from about tlic 
middle «f May until Octflbcr, except such timei as tmr 
usual midsuuiiner drou^h't occurs. This meanu wear and 
■tear, and considerable attention to keep the machines up tn 
their hi ghcBt efficiency, and accounts for considerable of the 
time irt the regular force to operate them. 

The work of spraying is becoming more of an under- 
taking each year as the ntimber of trees and shrubs on our 
Parkw increase. Arsenate of lead, in proportions of about 
five jtounds to fifty gallons of water was uaeii to prevent the 
dcstmctiun of the leaf-eating insects, and Target Brand 
Scale Destroyer for the San Jose Scale. The pests have 
diminishe<l in numbers greatlv through the effects of this 
spraying, and the wxirk should be continued each year. 

The autoiHobile purchased tor the department this year 
eost $1,401.5D, ready fur use. The cost of maintenance, 
including the purchasing of many necessary appliances, is 
fully set forth in the financial statement of ex]ienditui-es from 
the maintenance appropriation. The automobile first went 
into commission on Septenilier ♦!, 1910, and has been used 
whenever necessary, practically every day since its eoinmis- 
flion. It has run 2,016 miles, and has cost $37.39 for 
gasoline, or at the rate of 0.0183 cents per mile. It has 
averaged 21,8 miles ]yCT day from the date of its commission 
to January 1, lyil, and has been used nearly the entire 
time by the Superintendent ?n his daily rounds of the work. 
On a few txicasions it has been used to CJirry Commissioners 
<m visits of inspection to the Parks or to the Cemeteries.

nineteen out of a in)B8il)le tHCnty-five in five consecutive 
sIiotB fired in ten seconds. Some of the men have alrfndy 
qniilifiwi under this rather severe test ; and it is expected 
that within the next year |inictieiilly the entire force will 
have done so. 

FIRST Ml) TO THK IN.ICRED. 
The i>i>lice are frei|ucntly called upon fitr assistance in 
cases of accidents or injurieti. It wan felt thiit they oiiithi 
to understand the elementary principles of "First Aid to the 
lujurcd." Dr. H. H. BHrtuii<; of Boston, a recognized 
authority on such nialtei's, was »iccordin;jly employed to 
jlivo the necessary instruction. He ;jave two courses, each 
of five lectures, followed by an examination. One was 
attended by the night sipiad and the other hy the day S<]tind. 
All the officers and men, with the exception of two, passed 
the examination and receiveil cei-tificatcii. 

PRESENT CONDITIONS. 
It may. wc helieve, he safely said that the police force 
as a whole has never been at a higher pt»int of efficiency 
than at jiresont. The officers and men work harmoniously 
together, taking an intert'st in their work, and achieving 
highly credilahle results. A consi<Ierable number of men 
as compared with the size of the department are <tetailed for 
duty in plain clothes at heudqnarters under Chief Liquor 
Inspector John H. Carr. Originally started as n means of 
enforcing the" Tujuor laws during the no-licensc regime, this 
headquarters squad has proved vahiaiile in many ways, and 
is doing efficient work.

NEEDED IMPROVEMENTS. 
There 18 great need of improvement in tlie conditions 
at the Central Station. So far ns we cnn learn, there havf 
lieen no ninhetantial changes in the prison or f^ound-fldor 
part of this building for ahoiit thirty years. Dnrinp this 
time there has heen n great increase in popntntion and a 
ctiange in the |)iililie sentiment as to the pr()per treatment of, 
and proper acct>mmodations for, persons ntider c<mfincment. 
Most of the |iersons confined are hetng held for trial, and are 
not convicts. It is jilain that such persons, presumptively 
innocent, shnnld enjoy such reasonahlc comforts as do not 
cndunger their safe keeping. Aeeonling to pi-esont standards, 
the cells are certainly not humane, and are hardly decent. 
There ought to he a prison for w<»i'\cn, separate and ajmrt 
from the men's prison. There ought also to l>c a detention 
room where Imd cliil<lreu and yining persons who are held 
awailing the arrival of the State officer and for other reasons, 
can he securely kept without the necessity of linking them 
in the cells. Insane persons are frequently hckl for a shi)rt 
time [tending their examination and committal; and there 
ought to he a place where such unfortunates can he humane- 
ly kept without the risk of injuring tliemselves. The pro- 
priety ot these liist suggestions seem to us too a|>)iareut to 
need argument. 

At present, the entire plain clothes forie ccmsistuig of 
ti>ur inspectors, eight li(juor ofticers. and ihe Chief Li([Uor 
Inspector, have only one rather snndl room in which to do 
their work. This is very insuftiriciit accommodations for 
Hueh an im|H>rtant division.

Tlie (lepHrttitoiil oiifrht to liave « system of criminal 
itIentiticHtion, the Finfjer Print System or liertillon rfyaleni, 
or bolli, l)ut lliei-e la at the present time no room where this 
work Clin be properly done. 

Hiinliy a day gtw.s Ity in which at least one loiit child is 
nut liroiif^lit to the Centra] Station. Sometimes three or 
four and even more are brou*;ht in. There ought to he, in 
e(niiiwtion with the matron's department, a place where 
tliecio children can slay until their [larents cimie for them. 

The nc<;cssilies and iuiprovemente above indicated are 
riid and pressing. There are many less important needs to 
which we have not refcrrwl, Init which onght to be j>n)vide<l 
for. The time lias plainly come when sometliing must be 
done im these matters. 

The Second Distrint Court has removed to the new 
nistriet Couil house im Rock street. This leaves vacant 
the nmniH in the Central Station Imililing oceupied liy it. 
Two coiirsen appear to be open. First, the erection of a 
new building for police liea<h[uartcrN, placed a<ljaccnt to. 
and conntHted with, the new District Couit house. This 
of course is the best way to deal with the matter. It avoids 
the unpleasant spectacle of prisoners l)eing transfenv-d 
through the public streets with the chances of escajie : and 
it is of the greatest practical convenience to have polii^ heiul- 
(piarters in the same liuihling with the District Court. We 
recognize, however, that the finimcial condition of the city 
may not wammt .snuli an expenditure (estimalcil at $)>.'). 1)01)

to 47.5, (WO for the building nlone) nl the present time. 
We havu therefore employed Mr. E. I. Marveli, an archi-

in the 2)re!*ent hiiildln<r to meet the hnmetliatc neeensitiuB. 
It is l»elievcd that an alteration and re-arran<[eiiient of it 
which will provide for nil the present needs as liefore out- 
lined, eiin he made at an expense not exceeding; $30,000.00. 
The huildin}f will then, we think, he adetpiate for ten to 
fitVeen years and possihly more, depending upon the growth 
of the city. It will !<till be open to the objectiou and in- 
fonvenicnee of liciug separated fnnii the District (,"ourl, but 
in other reaiwete it will be fairlj satisfaet*>r3'. 

We therefore submit the mutter to your boani, reeom- 
inending that if the financial condition of the city warrants 
the expenditure, a new building for poliee headquarters and 
prison be ereirted adjacent to the new Court bouse ; and if 
such expenditure he deemed inadvisable, that the present 
building be altered and re-arrangcd to prtnide for the needs 
herein suggcsti-d.

The Trustees of the Public Library re8|)ectfully submit 
this, their Fifty-first Annual Report, Appeuded liereto and 
juloptwi ae a part of this report will be found the Librarian')) 
re|)<irt which ?luiw8 in detail the operations of the library for 
till' year. It will be seen from lhi« re|iort that the library 
now has 22,t<6H canl holders, that the circulation for the 
year was 187,742 volumes and that the library now contains 
H.H,13') volumes. 

The increased appropriation for the year enabled the 
Trustees to make extensive repairs im the building which had 
lon<r l)een necessary and to make larger purcbascs of books 
than usual. The parapet and cornice and the lower courses 
of stone of the building were re-pointed, the corridors, 
Childi-en's Room, Newspaper Room and the Elm Street 
vestibule were re-painted and an entire stack for I)ooks was 
installed on the fifth floor. The niimher of new b<H>k8 pur- 
chased Hiis 2,. Till, besidt's i^lO for replacing worn out or 
(la 111 aged bo<tks. 

The work of all departments of the library has been 
carried on by the liiirariaii and hi:? assistants with the most

Under fbe svMtem adopted in this library every book nnist

.Vs many books treat of a variety i)f subjetrts they must have 
a B'lbject entry under each subject treated. All the boukw 
added to the library since the publication of the Urge obissi- 
fiwl catiilo^ue in lHHi have been card catalogued, and it is 
tiie intention of the truslces to (continue the work of revision 
until all the b<H>ks purcliiiised before 1SH2 have also been 
can! CHtalofirued. Very few large public libraries now iswue

REFERENCE IlEPAIiTMKNT. 

Furnisliing books tor reading at home is not the prin- 
cipal function of a public lihmrv. Tiie department of 
reference and study which provides students and invcsti- 
gat<)rs with the free use of books for study and research has 
become well-nigh the most important function of the modern 
free library. 

The use of this department by imr people is <'onslantly 
increasing. The work re<|uired here is i)f the most exact- 
ing chariicter. Not only must the dcjmrtuieiit be e(|uip|H'<l

OPEN SHELF DKPARTMEXT. 

The Open Shelf Depurtment gains atciidiiy in [Hiblic 
favor. It numbei'B over three thunaniid vDliinies. Whilo it 
is the purpose of the Trustees to keep here ii large proportion 
of the newer books it is alt-o their intention to have aiwjiyd 
on the sliehes a fair rcpiesentiilicin of the works of tlie ohiei- 
ami standard authors, Keiiders enjoy the op|iortunity of 
making their own selections of b(nika directly from the 
shelves which this departnienl aHi)rds them. The present 
acconiniodations have already been oiitjrrown and tin- 
Trustees are considering plans for an extensive enlnrgcinent 
of this de|iartnient. 

MAIN DELIVERY. 

The circulation of books trom the main delivery waa 
ti2,534 volumes, certainly a large number when considered 
in connection with the additional circulation of the Children's 
and the Open Shelf Departments. In this department iis 
well as in the other depaitmcnts reiiders shouUI feel fi-ee to 
ask assistance from the attendants in selecting books. In 
fact this feature of library service is one of the most useful 
to the ptdilic and satisfactory to the library start'. 

BRANCH DELIVERY. 

The circulation of books through the branch deliveries 
haa not appreciably increaswl during the year, but the

till se three : f(tr recreation, lor instnietion and for eulture, 
and these ur-tn are eertainly suffieient to warrant piil)lie 
sup|iort of sneh institutions. The demand for fiction in nil 
pnlilic lihraries is by fiir the greater one. A great majority 
of readers read principally for reereation in order to get a 
tein|>orarj- relief from the toil and tedium of every day life 
hy enjoying, tliongh hrietly, views of au ideal life. It is the 
province of the library t() furnish sueh readers with the 
means of gratifying this desire and with the purpose uf 
elevating it to a desire f»)r the best in literature. It may 
Ih.' eonfidently stated that the library furnishes a higher 
()rder of fiction than that reprt;si'ntiMl by the majority of books 
Ixnight by private purehiisers. 

The library also aims to meet the needs of workers in 
every depiirlment of praetieal and intelleetual research, in- 
cluding espeeially the workers in the s)H'cialii{('d in<histries

TRUSTEED OP THE PUBLIC LIBRARV. aHA 

Id preparing for this consuiiimnlion nothing eaeentinl 
to fomiilete success seems to huvc been omitted. All the 
hooks requiring it have been put in perfect repair and sevenil 
hundred new volumes have been added, ninny of thcin 
standard works of science, literature and art. We notice 
particularly large adilitions to the department of history, and 
among these are many of high order. \^'e might partiour 
larize to the extent of a whole column, but this is unneces- 
sary, as the new catalogue, just from the press of Messrs. 
Almy & Milne, speaks for itself. 

The Library Room is exceedingly attractive, being not 
only conveniently, but elegantly fitted uji with every fscility 
for the easy and rapid transaction of business as well as fo 
the comfort of those who may resort there (or reading or f()r 
consulting authorities. 

The Rules and Regulations seem to be plain and simple 
and, wc have no doubt, will be unattended with embarrass- 
ment to the reading public. 

Its opening is opjxirtune. The present interruption to 
public <|uiet imjioses on us the necessity of seeing to it that 
the rising generation suffers no detriment from uur neglect 
in preparing it tor any eniergcncy which the future may 
impose. A ihiukiny, rendiiiij j/eo/j/c, irill he ii ndf-

It ha» since been ktit^tl for font agio uh diiiicaeoa in cncei; 
of iil)i:io)utc necPBuitj, as iiii emergency iiietieure, w)ien thert- 
w!is nil ijniidl pox in tlie cilv. the new contagioue hospital 
lieiiig in ptvH't'fs otVonptrwelion. Part of this time the utic 
of II hoot house on the sliore of Taunton river had to be 
!*rt'nrocl for iImj iuolation of contagious c.wea when thiji 
Highland Kuml house vvai* oceujiiud with otiier dieeHsea or 
wniidl \)nx. 

Ill JiinuarT, IIKIH, tlie two consumptive Hbiicks on llie 
(;ity Farm cast of tlie City Ho8|)ital witli their inmates were 
turned over to the Boanl of Health by the Cherseers of the 
Poor under the operation of the law ol 1!!07 referred to, 
and bv a good deal of expenditure in impnivcments iintt 
additi<m»*to the Imildings and the purchiise and erection of 
tents we have managed to cart! for our consumptive patients 
there almost up ti> the pi-eeenl time. 

A moiitli ago it was recognized that the condition of 
these buildings and tents and the accommodation in cumpnri- 
sim with the demand tor admission precluded the poasihility 
of projierly curhig for these consumptives there for the 
winter without exjiending an unwarrante<1 amount of money, 
so when the new contagious hospital at the corner of Bay 
and VVoiKlman sti-eets was turue<l over to the Board of 
Health the latter part of November without means to pn>p- 
erly furnish and eijuip it. it was considered the wisest thing 
to do was to remove the patients and furniture at the shncki? 
to the new hosjiital tiir the winter. The transfer was there- 
tore eom[i1eleil the tirst week in Dcceuilier, tlie adminietra-

Boanl of Health in various parts of the city. 

Our new eontagiuus hi)s|)ital was not jilanned nor 
intended nnd is not properly iidapte<! to the care of foii- 
Huniptives, and its use for such purpose in this emergency 
wild un'y until such time as properly ctmstrnctcd buildings 
for their cure are ei-ected. Such buildings can be erected 
upon the land upon which this hospital stands. There is 
plenty of room for both purposes, the lanil having been pur- 
I'hased with this object in view, and the adniinistnUion 
luiilding, kitchens and laundry can he made to answer for 
Iwith institutions with very little additional help under tltc 
same matron. 

If this is done and the tuberculosis patients and fur- 
niture removeii from the wards and moms of the contagious 
b<ispitul these latter can be suitably furnished for the 
pnqiose for which this hospital was intended ami built, and 
all diseases except tul)crculosiis and small pox carc<1 for 
-in it. 

When the small pox hospital is rebuilt the renting of 
tbc Highland Road house i^n l>e terminated ; but it will 
have to be i-etained until this is done to be used in caae of 
necessity should small pox break out.

tlietn the neceeunr}' care, unless they understand ur hare the 
inenns to employ a nurse, nnd see that the regulatians of 
the Boanl of Health are complied with. 

The good results of the work acconiplished by the nurse 
I'Uiployed fiir a part of Inst year, while the appropriation for 
her prtv was available, confirms the necessity for nurses to 
perform this work and prompts us to urge uiKin you to 
pnivide an appropriation this year to enable us to employ 
two nurses for the work. 

Without the supervision of nurses many children ill 
with contagious diseases would receive no medical attendance 
or if they did, not until afVer they had spread the disease to 
others, and cnusctl this Ikuird greater ex[ienst! than the em- 
]iluyment of the nurses would entail. 

A source of the greatest annoyance and dissiitisfiictiou 
to citizens and the Boanl of Health alike is the manner in 
which the garbage, swill and kitchen waste throughout the 
city is collected and diajHiscd of under the contract systeui 
at the present time. 

It is next to iui[H>ssible to liave this work done in a 
sanitary or sat isf actor}' manner under the contract system 
when it has to he let out on bids to the lowest bidder. 

Recently so much dissatisfaction has resultcil fr<»ni the 
neglect of the contractor and his collectors to remove the 
swill with anything like regularity or system that after a 
hearing the contriK'H>r was put upon pn)baliun for two weeks

iiilniiting the cuntnict uiiletsa the service ii brought up to ii 
saiisthctory »taiii]iu-<l nl that time. 

This ooinnict has five yearn to run from May Ut, 19U9. 
on a bid of «44.9(M).no. 

The contractor who did the work for five yeiirs prior to 
Miiy 1st. li)0!l, received *(i(),00().00 and his bid for the 
renewal of the contract was at the 8ame figures, nn<) while 
we have hxd coinphdnts during hia performance of the work 
they never liegan to assume the proportions they Rttaine<l 
under this Inst contract. However it is quite obvious thai 
when bids are culled fur on anything u|ion a common s)ieeiti- 
<'ation tliere can bo very little option in awarding the contract, 
but accept tbe lowest bidder if he can furnisi) the reipiircil 
liond to perforin tlie work acconliag to upecifi cat ions. 

Another source of dissatisfaction in connection with this 
matter arises through some himseholderB not keeping their 
gfirbage se|iarate but mixing it with their ashes and other 
rubbish. This miiy he the result of the garbage collectors 
neglecting to remove it or through disregard of the rules by 
tbe housekeeper, but whatever the reason it brings a ci>m- 
plaint to this office every time from (be Street Department 
which our insjiectors have to devote more or less time invest- 
igating. Then the feeding of this refuse to swine, as bus 
been done by every conti-actor since the system was inaugu- 
rated, is condemned by all scientific authorities who dis- 
appn^e of the use of pork so raised as an article of (oik!. 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



BOAKD OF IIKALTH. 611 

The Bonn! of Health h)») condemns the feeding of 
pwill to hogs or cnttle within the city limits and yet, incon- 
eii^tcnt no it may seem, our swill is carted off to the country, 
in tliis iind surrounding towns, fed to swine and the perk 
thus r)iise<I is hroufjht back and sold in the markets of the 
city. 

All this lends the Bonn) of Hcaltli to recommend in 
the interest of Minitntion and e<:ononiy that after the termina- 
tiou of the present contract all thig waste sliall he ditiposcd 
of by incinerHtiou. 

A cremator)- could be utilized to burn all light waste, 
such Hs paper, excelsior, bedding, matting, etc., now col- 
lecte<l by the Street Department or carted to the dumps by 
siorekeepers where it is sometimes set on fire, Riling the 
the surrounding air and houses with smoke, or is blown 
around the premises of citizens residing iu the neighborhood 
of the dumps causing them an endless amount of annoyance 
and resulting in ceaseless complaints to the Board of Health. 

If this reconmiendation is accepted and the erection of 
II civmntory consummated it will result in a safe and sanitarj' 
iiiethtKl of dis}>oBing of all light waste now collected by the 
Street Department as well as the gJirbage and swill or the 
Street Department may he able without much iulditioiinl 
expense to the city to ctdlect and dis|Mise of both in this 
manner.

citizens that it is of paramount im{K>rtHncc to the welfare of 
the comuiunily and that all suggestions and recommendations 
affecting so important a work siiould be entitled to fair and 
iTn])artial eon side ration t)y our municipal authorities. 

Many inii>ortaut things which enter into the work of 
the department and are essential to the sucoesa with whieh 
the public health can be conserved have been recomuipndcd 
to the City Government from time to time, and it nnist be 
rememlwred that unless reasonable facilities are provide<l 
the best results cannot be expected. 

Any city having as an abundant and pure supply ot 
fresh water and as clean a supply of fresh milk as we can 
lay chiim to has every reason to enjoy goinl health, and no 
justifiable retison can be advanced for allowing the standard 
of either to he lowered through parsimony on the part of 
those whose duty it is to see that the mcims arc provided to 
protect the quality of both. 

Among the many things to perfect the de|mrtment the 
ftdlowing may l>e named as deserving of coneidenition ; 

Our OJfir.e Room is flinprojm-tiitmite lo mir trork,

7'a ffie HowmiLh Bo'rnI of UiuUh, 
Gentlemen : — 

I have the honor to- sabtnit herewith r» follows iny 
Annual Report tie Agent for the year ending Dec, 3Ut, 
WIO. 

The t(»tiil nnnihcr of troiths fur tite ycHr, not including 
etill birtha, was 2^,^10, which, upun our popnintion of 
HS-,:iit5 iiccording to the FLKlernl Censiw of hmt ILiy, given

population aa compared with IILO"! the year previous, 20. .iO 
in the year liKW and 21..>!! in the year 1907. 

Ab the annual death rate is n-oogniz^'d a» an index of 
the heallhfulneija of at^Hniminity , and aa t}»e lie alt h fulness 
of a munici|mlify ia twie ttf its nvitrt valuable atwets, for 
reasons that need not be detailed, it le verj' encmraging to- 
the officers of the Health Deijartment to find their efforti:i 
rewarded with a continuetl reduction in the death rate in 
each siieeeaaive year for the [(critMl noted. But gratifying' 
ns this result is I am not unmindful of tl>o fact that our 
death rale iaslill higher than it should be, nor am I ignomiit 
of the principal (-tiutte tor this, and thxt it i^ only by thi> 
most jiersislent ethicntional work that the rate can be 
rediH'ed, as I shall endeaver to show.

Of the total deaths in Fall River duriiifj the year U)l(l, 
K.itI were infants under one yi-«r old, and 24li between ont' 
and five yearn ot age, making a total of 1105 diddren who 
(lied before rem'liing the age i>\' five years dnring the year, 
anil it is |irin('i)>ally to this fai't that the excessive death rate 
of rhe eity is dite. It also goes to show that Fall Kiver is 
nil exceptionally healthy eily because the date rate, if we 
eliniinHte the deaths of those who died under five years and 
consider the age attained by ii large number of the adult 
dwendants, will comi>are fayorably with other cities in this 
Commonwealth and 1 will eite an instance, a city engaged 
in the same industrial {lurfuitH hh FhI! River which eouies 
next to ua in [H>|)nIntion where the death rate for the years 
11107, lilim, liiOit, was 21.40; 20.3G and lit-.i.") respec- 
tively, although the percentage of the total deaths there fur 
the latter year of chifdren under five j ears of age was 80 
per cent, whereiin ours v!m> 50. 

Another thing which helps to incream- our death rate, 
though only to » small extent, is the nuiul>er of hospilali* 
now in this city to whii-h persons suffering friun accidents 'or 
diseaae are bnmght from outside towns for trcntnient. When 
any of these <rases tcnninate fatally the death is re<'()rde<l 
against us. This is manifestly unfair ;ind in luy opinion it 
would be only just if such deaths were eiiminat<'d fmrn our 
reconls its Fall Kiver deaths. I find this course is pursued 
in other cities. 

In looking for the cause of tiie high tleatli rate among 
infants ti»e cosmopolitim character of our population has to be

imrativclv reirenllv timf a great jiruponion of tins pin>ulatiim 
has arrived in this city direct from different coimtriL's in 
Europe. For the nwist |iart thew immigrants are of very

The greater ]»er eenfage of iw)th sexes find ein|»loyment in 
»mr cotton mills and I'nuii neeessity seek the cheajier tene- 
ment himscH where, generally blessed with large families, 
they are very often crowded and in sonte instances over- 
in)wded. The care, or rather hick of care which these \wii- 
ple found siifticieiit for their infants and children in the 
climate of the countries from which they came is not suitnldc 
f<)r them here. It is very bard to make them imderstnnd 
this iind the consei|uence is the abnormal death rate annmg 
them. 

As few, if any of these peojile are mechanics or evt-n 
skilltKl laborers the father cannot earn siiffii-ient to maintain 
his family so the mother is obliged to jx» to work in the 
factory. The conse<ineiKe is the inlauts and ytmnger <-hil-

FALL RIVER. MASS., IDOW. 

HOW TO KEEP THE BABY WELL. 

NUKSE YOUK BABY.— Mother's milk is the Iwst 
uf iill fcHMls. Nurse your halty for the first twelve inonthu. 
If yo" do its I'haiiees for life and health will lie ten times 
greater than the chances of a bottle-feil bahy, Never wean 
a bahy less than a year old exccjit at the doctor's advice. 
Do not wean the biiby in hot weather. Remember that 
ten hoTtle-fe<l babies die to one that is breast-fed. 

Nurse your baby at regular time, never ofVener than 
every two hours during the day and every four hours at 
night. Bahy should sleep .lix hours or more each night 
withimt iuterru]ition. Wake the baby if asleep when the 
r<-guhir time tor nursing conits. Give the bnby all the i-ool 
boiled pure water it wants. 

Do not nurse the babv every time it cries. Babv cries 
for niany reasons beside want of fofnl. Baby may cry 
because you few! it too of>en or too much ; because it ia

reaily needs cjiiiet and sleep. Baby frequently cries' boeanse 
it ia toil hot and also beeaiise it needs plenty of pnre fresh 
air. Flannel shirts in snnuiier pnjdiiue priekly heat an<l 
thus make the baby ery and suffer from restletisnes^. 

CLOTIIINC— Thebal>y feels heat inoii- than yon do. 
In hot weather remove most of the bahy-s elothiii-r. A 
louse cotton thin shirt without sleeves itj enough. Keep the 
ha hy cool. A eool bahy has mure comfort, sleeps better 
and feeln hotter than a very hut baby. The baby will not 
catch cold. Over-heating or over-feeding pniduces far more 
illness in babies than plenty uf clean, cool air. 

FUKSH AIH.— (iive the bahy. then, fi-esh air day 
ami niglit. Keep the windows open all day and all niglil. 
Itiiby should slee[) alone «iid in the coolest, ipiictest room. 
Keep the bahy out of the kitchen. Keep flies out of the 
house and )>rotect the hahy from ihem. Keep baby out 
doors as much as possihio being cnrcful never to expose it to 
the hot direct rays of the son. When you place the Imby in 
the shade he careful to alter its jiosilion as the snn movis 
around. Visit with the baby any one of tbe various |.ark.- 
as often as you can, if only for a few montenis at a time, 
(iive the baby two or three teas|n«>nfnls of cool boiled water 
several times a day. 

RATIIINfi.— Haihe the babv everv dav.

of tlie titeneilx, even the nir of n nil-called clean room 
(Miitniiis some impurities. The liacturia which get into milk 
from the nir or vessels increaf<e rajiidly H8 long as the milk 
rcnminH warm — 50 depeos Fahrenheit or n hove ; they are 
ilorninnt, or incrcHHO itlowly Ht lower tem))CriitureN. 

ClennlinesH and cold are iniiienitive if one would have 
;:o(m1 milk, although if it is ronKumed wj soon after [irodue- 
tion thnt the hacteria in it do not have time to im'reatw much 
— say two or three hours — the importanee of rold is lessened. 

If the priMlucer and the dealer have done their duty, 
there ii> daily lefl at the consumer's door a hottle of elenii, 
cold, un adult em ted milk. It nmy then hecouie unfit for 
food, especially for bahies, hy improper treatment at home. 
This had treatment consists (1) in |ilncin<; it in unclean 
vessels, (2) in exposing it unnecessiirily to the air, {;!) iu 
lailunt to keep it cool up to the time of using it. 

{The above exjireMion, *'a hottle of clean, cold, 
uua<hdterate<l milk" is used Imcause tiic hest way of deliver- 
ing milk is in hottles. Dipping millc from large cans 'ind 
pouring it into eustuiuers' receptacles on the street — with 
all the incident exposure to air niit always the cleanest— is 
had practice. Drawing milk from the faucet of a retailer's 
OHH is almost atn bad as dipjiing milk : for though the milk 
may l>e exposed to the street air a httle less than by the

consumers will receive less than their proportion of cream.

Th<! Board is doing everything in its powor with the 
nienns nt its disposal to ulleviate t)ic sufTcrings of those 
attiieted with this <lii-c;ise iind protect the public against its 
spreiid, but to be successful in its efforts it is of the 
utmost importance that every easu ehould lie known and 
locatetl. 

Physicians and householders are therefore appealed to, 
to )ironi|>tly report every case coining to their knowledge. 
This is iirovided for by law under a severe penalty. 

The regulations provide for the furnishing of printed 
eitvulars of instructions on the care of patients at home and 
the l>eet means to ]irevent the spreading of infection which 
arc sent by mail in sealed envel"|ies, to the head of every 
family in which a case is reported to exist as well as to the 
owner of the property. After the death or removal of n 
[Hitient or the removal of the Himily the regulations provide 
the house shall be fumigated before the room or tenement is 
permitted to be reocciipied. 

For the past three years the Boanl has care<] for all the 
cases of tubci'c^ulosis it was possible to care for with its 
limited facilities at the tribercuU>sis cottages, inchiding 
i-hildren, and adults, male and female in the incipient, 
moderately advancetl and chronic stages of the disease. 

Within the past two years three sanatoria have been 
erected by the State for the care of tuberculosis and a nundier 
of Fall Kivcr cases have Iwen admitted not only direct i'rom 
this city but also from other cities throughout the Cominon-

through this department. 

IjiLst Summer Hpplicatioiis for admission to our cot-

admission fur wiml of room, and. it becituie evident that 
larger and more suitable buildings woul<l have tu be providifl 
if we were to give patieuts suffering with this disease the 
Ciire they were entitled to under the law. 

These conditions were made known at the time. In 
August It vi>te was passed in the Boanl of Aldermen re- 
questing your Boanl to enter all persons anplying for nid on 
account of tubei-eulusis upon the widting list of variiius 
Ranntorin of the State. Applications for all persona at the 
cottages capable of lieing removed, SH in all were imniedi- 
iitely made out and forwanled to the counnisHioners, hut 
seventeen of these were as pn>uiptly returned with the iu- 
foriuation that the State had no place for the care of persons 
under fifteen years of age, tliat advanced or chronic; eases 
could not be received, and that all adults of either sex who 
had no settlement in some eity or town in the State and 
those who were n(it citizens of the United States should be 
.■ient to Tewksbnry. The 21 remaining applications were 
kept, hut when canls of admission were received only two 
I'onsented to go. It being (|uite plain that some other 
method for the relief of the ctingcsted conditions at the 
cottages would have to be devised and yiair Board, having 
decided that the erection iif tents and additions to the col-

cHse^ 6() far advanced as not to lie able to tritvel and peraone 
under fifteen years of age, none of whom would be received 
in a State Sanatoiiutn, should be admitted to our cottRgei?, 
oxfe|it that any [wrsim applyinjj to us for aid who was able 
and willing to go to a State Sanatorium would be admitted

was found upon inspection proper means could not be taken 
tit guanl Hgitinst the spread of infection at his home and 
that there was a bed that could be assigned to him at the 
cottagett. 

Ah every danatoriuni in the State is uccti|iied to abont 
its full capacity, applications are filed in consecutive order 
HI: received and taken uji in onler an varancies occur, it is a 
month and often metre after an application is made before

In your report to the City trovernment you have given 
the reasons for removing the consumptives from the cottage 
to Bay View hospital, I will only add that even with the 
increased mom and better facilities for caring for patients 
here, the s^ime congestetl conditions as existed at the cot-

If the cost of building is excluded, as it is not a pi-oper 
charge in estimating the cost of caring for this class of 
patientd, because the city is i>bliged hy hiw to maintain 
hospitals' for the care of contagious diseases, it would leave 
the cost of mainlcnancc for each patient for the yeai $l..'i7

This would bo still further reiluced hy eliminating the-

SANITARY INSPECTION. 

Notwithstimdinjr we h«ve only two ins[>cctors for thin 
city imd that much of their time is occu[)ie<i in wurk that can 
hardly be claimed to properly helong to tht-m, and is not 
ini|>03ed upon the sanitary ins|>ector8 in other cities of thi>< 
Stjite, not half the size and population of Fall River, wliere 
they have doubleil the numt>er of sanitary inspectors, I am 
satisfied the sanitary condition ot tliis city, as h whole, was 
never better and that a scrutiny of Table B, subjoinc<1, will 
convince anybody who takes the trouble to study it, that from 
the number of visits and inspections made and the number of 
nuisances abated and permanent impn>vcments made during 
the year your demand for at least one additional inspector is 
amply justified, and will have to be recognized before a sys- 
tematic ins|KJction of tenement houses can be expected. 

The natin-e of the work of a sanitary ins|>ector rofjnire 
that he should be specially <]ualificd to undertake it. It is 
neither pleasant or airreeable to himself nor popular with thi' 
people with whom he is brought hi contact in the perform- 
ance of it, and it is therefore to our inspectors' credit that no 
much has been accompli^jhed with so Httle fricti<m or com- 
|)laint or resorting more larfjcly to Court pn)ceeding8. Only

H enmll {inrt of the work ie of a routine nature, the greater 
part i>f it is uncertain and dcpendi^ upon ditfcrent conditions 
of season, weatlier, reports of contnjrioiis diaeaseH, conndiiints

a [lart of the diiy every Sundny an<l legal holiday, ie no 
eritcrion of the exHct time they work for hesidew having to 
give more or less time ever)- day before or after hours to 
writing out their reports, they are obliged to resjtond to 
ealls at any hour in case of an epidemic or unusual outbreak 
of contagious disease. In other cities from one to two hours 
during office hours are assigned to the sanitary inspectors for 
making out their n'ports, and as before stated, in some of 
those cities they have more inspectors than we havo and they 
are not required t() placanl houses for contagious diseases nor 
fumigate them afterwards. 

For the information of persons l»y whom some of the 
items in Table JJ may not be imderstootl I wish to state that 
the different items represent only so many inspe<^^tions. He- 
cause it says 32;i inspeeticuts were made of vaults on sewered 
streets ii does nut imply there are that many vaults on 
streets having a public sewer in the city, iiut that more than 
one visit, s<mietinics as many as tlu-eo or four visits have 
bi'cn ma<Ic in many cases. As a matter of fact the number 
of vaults on sewerc<l streets is eonstantlv varying. A vault 
is not permitted to Ik' built upon any properly abutting a 
street in which there is a public sewer, but new houses are 
being erected every day on property on streets in wliieli

A physician will Kometiinos give a symptom or a sequence

ilaniiary 1st, 1!U1. 

To thi- Ih.uomhh Hoard of Ihuhh : 

(ieiitlemen : — 

I herewith present ii rciiort of the work of the Vetori- 
imry De|)iirliiient of the It*nml of Heiilth tor the year ending 
Deet-uiher 31, IHIO. 

MILK IXSPECl'ION. 

During ilie year this work haa been carried on nhmg 
the linett previously adopted with satisfactory results. An 
iiirit^ased iiinount of work )ia^ bi^eti done and the conditions 
under which ndlk has I)een produced and diftrihuted im- 
pnived. A compariiton of the iinnexed t«ble with that of 
the two prececding years will show a marked improvement 
in almost every feature of oiir milk iuid dairy ins[>cetion. 

There has heen an increase in the number of licenses 
issued, in the nnmber of dairies and farms [iroducing milk, 
in the number of stores scllinfr milk, in the (|uantity of milk 
use<l, and in the number of dairies ivliich score above the 
minimum t)0 per cent, requireil; a decrease in the number 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



BOARD OF HEALTH. 



<if persons ecUin;; milk by hand, in the number of fanns o'' 
<l)iiriea scoring less than the minimum <>() per cent, required. 



lu the improvcmiint in the <iu;ility ol' the milk ad uhowu 
by the Biietoi iol(i<riciil examination, ii comparison of the 
table of thiii year with previous years will demonstrate the 
value of nnimal and dairy inspection. While the results ol 
this year's work is gratifying, it is not what it should be. 
However, the fault is not ours ; the tacilities for more per- 
f(H'tly doing this work have not been provided. More fre- 
quent ins[>ection of the dairies or farms is necessary, but 
with the means at our di8|>osal it is physically impossible to 
make them. I renew my reconimendaiion of last year that 
on automobile be provided for this work to repltioc the 
horse and buggy. At least three times as much work cx)uld 
Iw done, which means that far better conditions would pre- 
vail at the dairies and the purity of the milk raised nearer to 
H pro[)cr standanl. 

SLArOHTEK HOl'^E. 

The slaughtering of neat cattle and swine has been car- 
ried on during the year at the slaughter house owned by 
Mr. Wilfre<l Dumainc, located in tlie eastern set'ti<)n of the 
city, bonlcring on the south [nrnd, at the foot of Knight 
Street. Conditions and meth<Hl« have not changed ir<im 
those of last year. The niunlwr of animals slaughtered is 
flightly less, as is also the number of diseased animals. 

I had intended on the first of the year to recommend to 
vou that slaughtering at this place be no longer permitted for 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



ANNDAL BEPORT 



many and sufficient reaeooe. This was not done becAuse 
I was informed that the place wa« to be vacated and all 
I>uililings on or before the last day of Pebruan* and the 
eite U8e<l for manufacturing purposes. 

Sometime during the month of February there ivill be 
no place suitable, or unsuitable, where elnughtering of neat 
cattle or swine may be carried on. I recommend that after 
the closing of this place, no license or permit be granted to 
carry on the business of slaughtering neat cattle or swine 
until a miHlem sanitary* abbatoir is provided. 

Last year I recommende*! that it motlern sanitari- 
abbatoir be built and maintained by the city, which received 
your approval and practically tlie endorsement of the Board 
of Aldermen. The matter was referred to the finance com- 
mittee who were unable to reconniiend an appropriation 
for this ))urpo8e. 

I again recommend that this very important matter l>c 
given your serious attention. The greater jiortion <if the 
slaughtering is done by one clnss of our citizens, who bave 
become a substantial factor in the affairs of the city. They 
are reijuircd by fixed regulations, peculiar t4» thctiiselve«t, to 
Blaugbter and dress their food animals in a particular manner. 
They are also required to use this food within a short time 
after it is slaughtered and drewsed, thus making it iH'cessary 
til procure their aniaials frctjuenlly and as near home ac 
{Missible. About one-third of their uical supgdy is obtained 
from tliis city and the neigliboi-ing towns, comprising prin- 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



BOARD OF HEALTH. bOV 

oipally cows an<l calves fniin the (irtiry IJirms. It ia verj- 
iRi|K>i-tant for sfniitary and hygienic reasons that ttuise 
animals shuul*! be slaughtered at une jilace and that jilac-e 
tihoiild he in the city where the product ia consumed and 
the wasti! m^teriiil disposed of and jx'ojMir inS]>e('tion »f the 
t'ooil and coDtnil of the disposition of waste proilucts niav he 
niaintaine<l. 

Another class of aninmls slanghttued in eonsi<lerahle 
numbers is hogs. It has been shown hy the statistics 
gathered hy the United States Bureau of Animal Industry 
that Tuberculosis is easily contracted hy the hog and that 
a very large [iercentage of hogs presented fur slaughter are 
affected in some ilegrec with this disease, particularly those 
that ar>' led on swill, oftal and the milk of tuberculosis cows. 
The number of hogs slaughtered at the slaughter house in 
this city does not represent the nnndter of hogs raised and 
slaughtered in adjoining towns and sold in the city. There 
has been no inducement oHered to the farmers to bring 
their hogs to a slaughter house in this city because the 
facilities are no better than are to be found in the barn of 
tlie average farmer. 

All hogs brought into the city are stam|ied as inspected, 
practically none of which were inspected at the time of 
slaughter. (This does not apply to hogs bearing the V . H. 
stamp.) 

Fall River being the convenient market for the farm 
products of the adjoining towns, it should maintain a proper 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



It!'*) 'anxual report 

^iipcr vision over such jmiilncts to insure the ntizeas a pure,

We cannot consiMtently deiniind that our neighlKirs 
comply with iiKxlcrn niethmis uf slaughtering and preparing 
iiniina] fooJd until we proviife siniiltir uiCHns tor ouiselves. 

In eumuiary : — A modern ahhntoir is h necotwity. 
First, it will place th«? city in control of the hx-al meat 
supply. Second, it will insure cleanly antl sanitary methmltt 
of slaughter and pi'eparation of animals for food. Third, it 
will regulate and direct the final dis|)oaition of the oftal ntul 
products of slaughtered animals. Fourth, Full River can 
consistently and reasonably demand that the towns u^ing 
this city as its market shall provide equal methods and 
supervision for slaughtering ami prejiaring animals for foml 
if they are to be permitted to sell their prmlucts in this city. 
Fit^h, K municipal abhitloir can be maintained at pritvticHlly 
no cxjwnBe to the city, 

I earnestly request that you again ask the Boiirti 
uf Aldermen for the necessary nietins to build Mid tiiniu- 
tain !i municipal abhatoir, the nppnixiniate cost of which 
is stated in the estimates for this division of your Board. 

-MARKP^T rXSl'ECTION. 

The value of Market Inspection is becoming: more 
apparent and the volume of the work is increasing bevoni] 
our means to properly cait for it. The table annexetl eho\v8 
that a great number of visits and inspections have been 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



BOAim OF IlKALTIt. ilitl 

iniide. It is quite iiii)ii)t<«ib)e to show liy any kind of written 
report wliat tlie value of those inH[)ccti<intt are iind hnvebeen. 
Inasmuch hb it is shown how frreat is the volume ol' work 
done, 1 must asein'e you rhat it is done more or lei^a imper- 
tectly. The work U of vaiyiiiff ohurncler an<l recjuiri's in 
many in8tan<ree patient and [K-reiistent clfort to bring abont 
the (lesircd results, viz: — wholesomo, untainted tlKHl ttir sale 
under eleiinly (^>nditions. 

Another Market Inspector is neeessnry if the work is 
to 1« done as it shonld be. The territorj- to he covered is 
too hii'jre and the niindterof places and wn^tns selling and 
<listritiuting various kinds of food are altogether too numerous 
for one inspector. 

I sincerely hope that y<)U may be able to find nieans to 
provide tins division with another Market In8i)ector, 

Mr. Harry Way, Market Inspeetor, applied for leave 
of absence licginning October 24, liMO. on acconnt of 
illness, which was granted. Mr. Daniel F. Connoi's was 
assigned by you to continue the work dnring Mr. Way's 
absence. I regret to inform you that Mr. Way has not 
yet sufficiently recovered to resume his duties as Market 
lnspet;tor. 

Mr. Connors lias, in n very apprecialdc nnmner, per- 
formed the duties as Market Inspector. 

BACTERIOLO(iICAL LABORATOUY. 

The vtilunie of work in the Laboratory had increased 
over last year. Xo advance work has been under-

ENTERTAINMENTS. 

During the year we have from time to time tried to 
arrange little entertainments with the hope that we might 
divert the minds of our patients from their condition, and our 
efforts along this line was very much appreciated by the 
patients. 

During the year we have had five such entertainments, 
with daily graphophone concerts, the latter being very much 
appreciated by the patients. 

RECOMMENDATIONS. 

I would suggest to the Honorable Board that the erec- 
tion of tents at our present location would be very unwise, 
as the cost of repairing would be a very large item for the 
year. Our expense for repairing tents last year was 
$97.7^, and 1 am quite sure ^ that this wnu Id be doubled at 
our present location, due to the severe winds which usually 
prevail. 

It will be imperative to make more room if the 
Board desire to accommodate all who apply for admission, 
and with this end in view I would suggest the erection of 
shacks which would be more adequate for the housing of the 
patients, and very much more economical, as the cost of 
maintenance would Ite very small. 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



AMNUAL REPORT 



I would euggpst that the veramlns on the north and 
Bouth side of the building be screened, as these verandas 
are used constantly by the patients, and this will certainly 
ap])ly during the summer months.

The laying of wires underground is of great importance 
and should be encouraped in every way possible. The great 
increase in the use of ekt^tricity for light, heat and power 
pur[>oaes, the use of current at much higher potentials than 
in former years, increases the danger lo life and property 
where the conductors oi' electricity arc run over (he street, 
supporte<l on poles subject to the weakening process ot 
decay, and ravages of storm, the result of which has in 
many instances proved disastrous to life and property. 

Where feasible, overhead lines should be substi- 
tuted (especially through congested sections of the city) as 
fast as possible with the underground conduit system. The 
Fall River Clectric Light Company has made commendable 
progress in this cinss of construction, and are making every

This cuuijiany are to be commended for the prompt and 
efficient manner in which they have eoniplietl with the 
request and K'quireuiente of this department. The company 
have removed, appnixiniately, six and one-half (0^) miles 
of their old feeder wires, the insulation having become po 
iletcrioiiited that they were unsafe for further use. These 
wires have been repla<'ed by new and larger ones, increasing 
tlieir sti-cngth, and ciirrving capacity of current which

provemente in their electrical equipment, that will pnmiutc 
Bafety, or render better service. 

The Inspector requires that the eslnblished rules Jind 
rcquirementa of the Niitiunnl Electric OmIc shiill be used an 
the standard of eWtrieal ccmstruclion and wiring iidii|itcil by 
this department. All electrical contractors, imd wircnicn 
should acquire a thorough knowlcdfre tjflbe ruh-s goveritiuj; 
the installation of clectncjil equipments, as none will be 
approved that does not apply with the department's re- 
quirements. 

I am pleased to say that the electrical workmen 
generally are familiarizing themselves with the mice, ihe 
result of which is showing a decided improvement in elt-ctri- 
cal construction. F^lectrical energy, if properly handled, is 
unquestionably the safest form of iltnminalion and power 
known. If not kept under proper contral, it becomes a 
menace to life and property, and this department is en- 
deavoring to give it that attention and su]>ervision that its 
imjwrtance warrants. There is no question in the mind of 
any person conversant with the electrical situation, and with 
thti work of the department, but the exjwnditui'e is well 
warranted by the results obtained. The dejMkrtment has the 
good wdl and the sup|H>rt of the business interests us well as 
that of the citizens at large. I earnestly recommend Ihiit 
the city ordinances governing this department be recodified 
or amended so as to strengthen the effectiveness of the de- 
partment. There are certain points relating to the rights of 
the public, the good of many, and the Siifety to life and

which hne the necessary legal authority back of it to permit 
of it maintaining its position. It is hoped that this subject 
will be given the coneidemtion that its imjxtrtance demands. 
In conclusion, I desire to thank the public in general for 
the courteous manner in which I have been treated while 
|)erforniing my duties.

ATTENDANCE. 

The population of Fall River increased by 3.516 
during the year ending May 1, 1910, the number of 
children between five and fifteen years of age de- 
creased by 915 and the number between seven and four- 
teen years of age increased by 625.

ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 



The number of illiterate minors over fourteen 
years of age for the year shows a large decrease from the 
year before and this fact speaks well for the evening 
schools and helps to justify the continuance of teachers, 
even when the attendance becomes low or, in other 
words, the reducing the number of pupils per teacher. 
This method was tried during the previous year and 
the teachers reported that pupils whom they then had 
came back the next year and seemed to retain better 
what they had received the previous year and to take 
up the work more readily than ever before. 

The following table gives the returns of the school 

census for the last ten years in regard to such minors. 

laOl 1247 Decrease 485 

1902 1734 Increase 487 

1903 1235 Decrease 499

1908 939 Decrease 135 

1909 1144 Increase 205 

1910 464 Decrease 680 

Record figures were made in the number of chil- 
dren between seven and fourteen years of age, in the 
whole number of pupils enrolled, in the average number 
belonging and in the average attendance. 

Acknowledgement is hereby made to those who 
are carrying on the Bishop Stang Day Nursery and the 
Ninth Street Day Nursery and to Mr. S. Howell 
Wright, Agent of the Massachusetts Society for the 
Prevention of Cruelty to Children, for the assistance

given that has resulted in keeping children jn school 
who otherwise would be compelled to be out of school, 
thereby seriously affecting the attendance. 

The Superintendant occasionally gives a permit 
for- an older brother or sister to remain out of school 
for a short period when conditions are such as to render 
this absolutely necessary, to take care of a younger 
brother or sister and, in several cases, the Day Nur- 
series have been able to take in the little one, thus en- 
abling the older ones to attend school. 

TRUANT OFFICERS. 

The average attendance increased by 582 over 
that of the year before and this good record is to a 
large degree the result of the efficient labors of the 
truant officers. 

The great reduction in the number of pupils com- 
mitted to the Union Truant School saves the city a 
large item of expense and this gives additional evi- 
dence of the good work of the men employed as truant 
officers. 

The following table shows a part of their work dur- 
ing 1910.

FALL RIVER TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION. 

The Fall River Teachers' Association has always 
been one of the powerful influences for high class en- 
tertainment and broadening educational advantages. 
To this Association has now been added the Grade 
Teachers' Club as the second organization of teachers 
in the city. Both of these bodies give to the teachers 
a chance of becoming better acquainted with each 
other and at the same time the opportunity is pre- 
sented for all to improve themselves in equipment 
for their chosen calling. Much credit is due the officers 
of these two organizations for their efforts to make a 
success in whatever they have undertaken and every 
teacher in the city should belong to the Fall River 
Teachers' Association and every teacher in the grades 
should be a member of the Grade Teachers' Club.

THE GRADE TEACHERS' CLUB. 
The Grade Teachers' Club, whose "object shall 
be mutual betterment" has been formed, which, ac- 
cording to the constitution, shall have an executive 
committee of twenty members. The present ex- 
ecutive committee consists of the following: 
President-^ Adelaide S. Warfield, 

Vice Phesidents— Fanny H. Learned, 

Secretary— Alice D. Alray, 
Treasurer — Maria L. BufRinton, 
Press Committee. 
Mabel H. Remington, Nellie G. BronsoD, 
F ranees W, Moore, Harriet B. Sdvia, 
Anna V. Dillon. 
Conference Committee. 
Fanny H. Learned, Katherine C. V. Sullivan, 
Bertha E. Fogwell, Mary E. Thompson, 
Elizabeth G. McDermott. 
Educational Committee. 
Elizabeth T. Higney, Elizabeth A. Regan, 
M. Alice Grady, Lucy S. Macomber, 
Annie C. Bush. 
The Club has also a Legislative Committee con- 
sisting of twenty-seven members, three from each 
ward of the city, and a Nominating Committee of 
three members. One public .meeting was held during 
the year, after organization, when Miss Eva M. Morley 
of Boston addressed the members upon "The Or- 
ganization of Teachers' Clubs." 

EVENING SCHOOLS. 
The enrollment of the evening schools was some- 
what smaller than that of the year before, which was 



yL.OOgle 



20 ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 

due chiefly to two reasons, first, the effect of the law 
raising the age Hmit from fourteen to sixteen years, 
of some who must attend the day schools, who former- 
ly were compelled to attend the evening schools, and 
second, the fact that no one is compelled to attend 
evening school who is eighteen years of age or over. 

The classes in Drawing met in the hall of the 
Lincoln School building and the classes in Stenog- 
raphy and Typewriting of the Lincoln Advanced 
School met in the High School building, thus saving 
the carrying back and forth of the typewriting machines. 

The number of pupils enrolled and therefore the 
average attendance of the Architectural and Mechan- 
ical classes were somewhat larger than the corres- 
ponding numbers for the previous year. 

For several years it has been noticed that many 
who wished to attend the Bradford Durfee Textile 
School were unable to maintain their places in the 
school on account of a deficiency in their knowledge 
of the fundamentals of arithmetic. To assist the men 
who were compelled to give up their work at the Tex- 
tile School, two classes were formed, one in the N. B. 
Borden School building and one in the High School 
building. Special teachers were employed but neither 
room proved a success, for the pupils realized they 
were not attending the Textile School and very few 
appeared for the special work in Arithmetic. 

THE OFFICE. 

The number of certificates enabling children be- 
tween fourteen and sixteen years of age to work. 



yL.OO^IC 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 21 

issued in 1910, was 2109, an increase of 111 over the 
number issued in 1909. 

The birthplaces of children who received cer- 
tificates are as follows : — Fall River, 1465 ; other 
Massachusetts cities and towns, 99; other states in 
the United States, 114; Azores, 160; Canada, 130; 
England, 75; Russia, 21; Italy, 11; Austria, 10; 
Brazil, 7; Scotland, 4; Ireland, 3; Germany, Sweden, 
Belgium, Roumania, Poland, Bermuda, Madeira 
Islands, Philippine Islands, Sandwich Islands and 
Syria, 1 each. 

The age and schooling certificates were amended 
by ' 'An act to provide for medical inspection of work- 
ing children between the ages of fourteen and six- 
teen" which was approved March 19, 1910, and went 
into effect August 1, 1910. 

The applicant for a certificate to enable him to 
go to work must now present, in addition to the reg- 
ular employment ticket properly filled out, a certi- 
ficate signed by one of the medical inspectors stating 
that said minor has been examined by him and, in 
his opinion, is in sufficiently sound health and physi- 
cally able to perform the work which the minor in- 
tends to do, and these facts are incorporated on the 
face of the age and schooling certificates that are 
given out in the office of the Superintendent of Schools. 

MEDICAL INSPECTION. 

The summarj' of results in the tests for sight and 
hearing given by the teachers for the last five years 
is shown in the following table.

The number of parents or guardians who were

needed attention was 1477. 

The names and addresses of the medical inspec- 
tors of the schools, appointed by the Board of Health, 
are as follows :- 

F. deBorgia Bei^eron, M. D., 126 William St. 

J. Alexandre Bolduc, M.D.,379 East Main St. 

Thomas Cox, M. D., 1244 Pleasant St. 

John J. Gorman, M. D., 1222 North Main St.

John M. Leonard, M. D., 420 South Main St. 

Michael H. Shea, M. D„ 517 South Main St. 

Luther J. Shepley, M. D., 29 Massasoit St. 

The schools are apportioned as equally as possi- 
ble among the eight inspectors. 

John B. Hawes, 2nd., M. D., in a paper read be- 
fore the Massachusetts Medical Society at Boston, 
June 7, 1910, says in regard to the school nurse: 
"Physicians can examine children, legislatures can 
pass laws directing that there shall be instruction in 
tuberculosis, its prevention, etc., teachers can be 
provided with information on the subject, but unless 
there is a woman medically trained as regards the di- 
sease, socially trained to cope with social problems. 



yL-OC^iC 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 



and most important of all, trained or endowed by 
nature with tact and good sense, little will be accom- 
plished among the children," 

Every one agrees that it is difficult or even im- 
possible to persuade adults, particularly among the 
uneducated classes, to change their set ideas and 
methods of living. It is by dealing with the children 
that we are really going to control healthy, clean and 
sanitary living in the homes, not in this generation 
nor in the next perhaps, but some time in the future, 

I regret to say that the very essential factor in 
the medical inspection of the schools, the school nurse, 
has been discontinued. I trust that the Board of 
Health may be able to appoint another and that 
she may prove as efficient and helpful as the former 
one who did such good work and gave most valuable 
assistance by her co-operation with the school physi- 
cians, with the teachers in the schools and with the 
parents and children, in their homes. 

In some cities the dentists have volunteered to 
give their services to the attention of the teeth of de- 
serving and needy children on a certain day of the 
week. This real philanthropy is productive of much 
good and is certainly worthy of emulation throughout 
the State. 

ANTI-TUBERCULOSIS EXHIBIT. 

Early in the year an Exhibit was prepared by 
the local Anti-tuberculosis Society and, by permit of 
the School Committee, was placed in the larger schools 
for a week at a time. This Exhibit consisted of large 



yL.OOgle 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 



cards containing pictures and printed directions 
which were designed to instruct the children in re- 
gard to the pre\'ention of the spread of the terrible 
disease. The cards were explained by the Medical 
inspectors and by the principals of the respective 
schools; the pupils made the Exhibit and the talks the 
basis of written and oral work in English, Many of 
these papers have been examined by physicians and 
others interested and it is the general opinion that if 
the average child knows as much about tuberculosis, 
or if the papers represent what the children really 
know, Fall River, in the next generation will have 
consumption well under control- 
Later in the year the Exhibit was carried to the 
different evening schools and State Representative 
David P. Keefe visited the schools and gave bene-

SUMMER SCHOOLS. 



At the regular meeting of the school committee 
held July 5, 1910, upon recommendation of the Stand- 
ing Committee on Southern District, it was unan- 
imously voted that the experiment of Summer Schools 
be made by opening two rooms in each of three build- 
ings, one in the south, one in the central, and one 
in the north part of the city, providing in one room 
for smaller children and in the other for those who 
are unable to read or write in the English language, 
although of somewhat advanced age and who cannot 
secure work on account of their inability to read 
and UTite in English. 

In accordance with this vote the Slade, Pleasant 
Street and Border City School buildings were opened 
during five forenoons each week from nine to half 
past ele%'en for four weeks beginning July 18. 

The following corps of teachers were appointed; 

Slade School, Principal, Harry Smalley , Assist- 
ants, Eleanor G. Corrigan, Katherine M. Moran, 
Helen B. Stirling. 

Pleasant Street School, Principal, William A. Hart, 
Assistants, Catharine Desmond, Cornelia C. Mackie, 
Mabel A. Robertson. 

Border City School, Thomas A. Dolan, Assist- 
ants, Elizabeth C. Finneran, Mary R. Shay, Harriet 
B. Silvia. 

Other teachers were added in each of the build- 
ings according to the increase in attendance. 

The Superintendent herewith acknowledges with 
thanks the great helpfulness of Mr. George W. Rankin,

librarian, who kindly sent a box of books to each 
school and gave many illustra.ted weeklies to interest 
and instruct the pupils. 

Extracts from the reports of the principals follow. 

"The attendance for the session of four weeks 
did not materially lessen during the last half of the 
month. From this and also from conversations with 
pupils and parents I am inclined to believe that an- 
other week might be added next year. As a great 
many of the children attending the summer schools 
are foreigners I think that special emphasis should 
be laid on English. Much can be accomplished by 
conversation classes. These children are naturally 
voluble and this trait can be made use of. We should 
get as far away as possible from the text book and 
ordinary school methods. The more informal our 
work the better. Of course, there may well be an 
exception to this in the case of older and more ad- 
vanced pupils- 

The playground is an important factor in the 
success of the school. It has by no means been devel- 
oped to the full limit of its capability. The child 
is his real self on the playground and fifteen minutes 
of intimate association with him in his games and 
sports will put the teacher in closer union with him 
than will a whole day spent in the schoolroom," 

"The school filled a demand and a need. The 
smallest attendance was 52 on the first day. The 
largest was 189 on the last day. The average was 
129.

ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 



The vacation school should partake of the nature 
of play under direction. The play should be instruc- 
tive and constructive. Discipline should be replaced 
by interest. Subjects which deserve to be taught 
in our summer schools next year are sewing for the 
girls, whittling for the boys ; mechanical drawing 
and construction of paper articles by the girls, toys 
by the boys, from plans ; play ground activities 
under supervision; music and dancing, and where 
possible, cooking. 

In the Pleasant Street school we took up sewing, 
doll dress making, cutting, pasting of scrap books, 
school yard games, singing, drawing, and much read- 
ing of interesting stories. Otherwise the time was 
devoted to the three "R's" in the form of contests 
and spelling matches etc. We also had a daily lesson 
in nature work. 

The kindeigarten was carried on as during term 
time. This was very acceptable because by nature 
the kindergarten is very nearly what a vacation 
school should be in atmosphere and method. 

For materials for next year I would recommend : 

More sand, pails and shovels. 

Plenty of reading matter in the line of folk- 
lore and fairy tales. 

Books and papers for cutting. 

Drawing supervisor, rulers, pencils and com- 



Good books of songs. 

Sloyd knives and supply of white-wood or 
soft pine. 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 31 

(Sewing supplies are gladly brought from 
home by pupils.) 

Arrangements for trips afield. 

Four weeks, I believe, was a term of sufficient 
length. On the early days of the last week the attend- 
ance had begun to weaken. 

"The school opened with an attendance of 85 
children and closed with 128, with an average of 129 
for the four weeks." 

' 'The school consisted of four rooms and was organ- 
ized on the lines of the term school, 1, Kindergarten; 
2, Grades 1 and 2; 3, Grades 3 and 4; 4, Grades 5 to 9. 
The kindergarten was conducted in the regular manner 
with the addition of sand and pails for playing in the 
yard. The interest was most pronounced and we had 
a waiting list during the whole four weeks. The program 
in the other rooms was varied as much as possible 
to maintain the interest of the children, to make it 
different from the term school and to ease off on the 
discipline. There was much singing, playing of games 
under the teacher's supervision, both in the yard 
and in the room, drawing, folding, cutting, elementary 
mechanical drawing for older ones, the use of com- 
passes, reading, writing, spelling, arithmetic, making 
scrap books, sewing, embroidery and story -telling. " 

"The plans for the future should be determined 
in part, by the motive of the parents in sending their 
children. We should be democratic enough to give 
them some things that they desire, and autocratic 
enough to give them what will be for the best interests 
of the city and the state in the development of the 
citizens of tomorrow. Parents sent their children: 



yL.OOgle 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 



First, To keep them off the streets and out 
of mischief. 

Second, To get some help for the next grade 
in term school, 

Tliird, To be helped in some particular study- 
in which the child had been weak the preceding year. 

Fourth, Because they wanted their children to 
learn English. (This applied to the French in par- 
ticular.) 

I think we should make it possible for a deser\-ing 
child who is delinquent in some study to have special 
instruction at public expense. If this can be done 
in summer school and the child promoted, it will be 
economy for the city. Whether a child is ' 'deserving' ' 
should be determined by the principal of the day school 
which such child attends. We should also be ready 
to help the children from the parochial schools, but 
not confine ourselves to reading and writing as we do 
in the illiterate rooms in the term schools. 
I recommend the following: 

1 More sand and pails for the kindergarten. 

2 Clay modeling in Grades 1 and 2. 

3 Cardboard construction in Grades 3 and 4. 

4 Elementary mechanical drawing in Grades 
5 to 9. 

5 Use of sloyd knives. 

6 More sewing and embroidery. 

7 A piano for singing by the whole school. 

8 More attention to sports, including running 
and jumping. 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe

9 Opportunity to take classes afield and in 
swimming. 

10 That the Supervisor of Drawing make up 
a course co\-ering the manual training and be engaged 
to supervise the same. 

In addition to the practicable recommendations 
of the reports of the principals of the vacation schools 
my own recommendations are as follows: 

Vacation schools of four weeks' duration in three 
or more buildings having 

(1) A Kindergarten section. 

(2) A section, if there is a demand for it, for 
special help for those older pupils who are trying to 
secure their age and schooling certificates to enable 
them to work. 

(^) A section for those pupils in the different 
grades who, through no fault of their own, haVe barely 
failed to be promoted.

NEW BUILDINGS AND NEEDS. 

Three new buildings have been erected during 
1910 as follows: 

The John J. McDonough School, on the comer 
of William and Fountain streets, is a building con- 
taining twelve rooms, a Kindergarten, and a hall. 
At the time of writing this report the building is 
finished and nearly ready for occupancy. This will 
take all the pupils from the Anawan Street School 



yL.OOgle

and the Canal Street School and will relieve the Robe- 
son Columbia Street, Broadway and Samuel Longfellow 
Schools. 

The William J, Wiley School, on the comer of 
North Main and Canedy streets, will contain nine rooms. 
This will relieve the Border City and Steep Brook 
Schools. 

The Hugo A, Dubuque School, on the comer of 
Locust Street and Oak Grove Avenue, wiU contain 
eight rooms and will relieve the Covel Street and Brown 
Schools. 

As regards new buildings by far the most needed 
at present is the Technical High School which now 
seems to be a reality in the near future and the need 
of it steadily increases. It cannot be built in any 
too short a time to relieve the crowded conditions 
of the present high school. 

As stated in the last report, there is urgent and 
immediate need of a large building south to relieve 
the Laurel Lake, George B. Stone and Slade Schools. 
After this building is erected and adjustments are made 
in the schools mentioned, the southern section of the 
city will ha^-e been well cared for in the matter of 
school accommodations. 

A principal in the eastern section says ' 'The 
proposed erection of a new mill in the vicinity should 
hasten the building of the addition to the Brown 
School." He seems to think also that no permanent 
relief will be obtained until additional school accommo- 
dations are provided somewhere between Mason and 
Fourteenth streets.

The attendance at the Highland School shows 
that there will soon be need of another school north . 
of the present school. 

The school building at Copicut, after being closed 
for twenty-two years, was repaired and opened on 
November seventh and pupils who were formerly carried 
to the Watuppa School were transferred to this school. 

Fall River needs many more school rooms than it 
has at present in order that conditions crowding from 
fifty to seventy pupils in a room may cease to exist, 
and in order that our recent graduates from our Nor- 
mal Training School and the State Normal Schools 
may not be compelled to assist and wait for five years 
before being appointed to rooms. 

The following buildings have more or less urgent 
needs and attention should be given to them, if pos- 
sible, by the Department of Public Buildings: 

Brayton Avenue, interior needs, 

Highland, curtains, windows, seats and desks. 

Lincoln, seats and desks, 

Robeson, cellar, 

Slade, interior repairs, 

N. B. Borden, general repairs and improvements, 
walls, floors, desks, 

Westall, yard. 

Border City, urgent interior needs, 

Ferry Lane, interior needs. 

CONFERENCE ON ENGLISH. 

Upon request of the President of the Teachers' 
Association the committee allowed the schools to be 



yL.oogle 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 



closed at recess on the afternoon of March 10, that 
all the teachers might attend a conference on the 
subject of English and Language, at which teachers 
from the elementary and high schools presented 
papers that were full of profitable suggestions. The 
Association certainly merited the commendation and 
approval that it received from the Board for the 
interest shown in the matter of English. 

By vote of the school committee meetings were 
held during October and November in the school 
buildings in the city in charge of the principal of 
the building, at which all the teachers of the school 
discussed the problems of their respective grades in 
the subjects of English and Arithmetic, such as the 
apparent lack of correlation of the work in the grades, 
and they suggested remedies for improvement. Writ- 
ten reports embodying the conclusions and recommend- 
ations of these meetings were submitted by the prin- 
cipals to the office. 

Two meetings of the teachers in all the grades 
were held at the high school and a talk given at each 
on the subject of English, by Mr. Charles L. Hanson, 
head of the department of English at the Mechanics 
Arts High School of Boston, who formerly was an 
instructor in our own high school. 

Two siinilar meetings were held for the consider- 
ation of Number and Arithmetic and were addressed 
by Mr. John C. Gray, Superintendent of Schools of 
Chicopee. This is a beginning of a much needed re- 
vision of our Course of Study.

THE WORK IN THE SCHOOLS. 

One recommendation from a principal of a gram- 
mar building has my endorsement and is worthy 
of discussion by the Board, if necessary. The plan 
is successfully practiced in many cities and whenever 
it has been tried here in individual cases or by classes 
the results have been satisfactory. I recommend 
it for approval by the School Committee. It is as 
follows: "that in the different grades (especially in 
those buildings with two rooms to a grade) a "Class A' ' 
and a "Class B" be recognized; "Class A" to consist 
of those who are able and ready to progress rapidly, 
and "Class B" to consist of those who, for one reason 
or another, must proceed slowly, the opportunity 
being always open for a member of "Class B' ' to work 
up into Class "A' ' as well as the way being always open 
for a pupil to return to "Class B" from "Class A" 
who does not work to maintain himself in "Class A". 
This plan would furnish an incentive to slow or lazy 
pupils as well as give the opportunity to those that 
are able, to progress according to their ability, an 
opportunity to which they would seem to be entitled. 

On the other hand, it would give the slow pupils 
an opportunity to move at a rate suited to their 
ability and relieve them from the discouragement 
of having their work brought constantly into contrast 
with that of the quick and ready pupils in the same 
room with them. "Class B" might be expected to 
cover the bare essentials of the grade, while ' 'Class A' ' 
could not only do that but could do much in 
the nature 6f extra work. 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 



Another grammar principal reports "In the reg- 
ular school work the teachers are striving as faith- 
fully as ever. One is trying an experiment that seems 
to me very good to increase the efficiency in spelling. 
Instead of assigning twenty words for a spelling lesson, 
only ten are assigned, but in addition to learning how 
to spell them, the pupils are required to look up the 
meaning of each word in the dictionary. Then when 
they write their spelling, instead of writing simply 
the word dictated by the teacher, they are required 
to -write a sentence containing the word. In this 
way they are gaining not only in ability to spell but 
also in the power to use words correctly. The queer sen- 
tences that are sometimes written show that the pupils 
are not always able to grasp the meaning and proper 
use of the words even with the help of the dictionary. 
In such cases the teacher has the opportunity of making 
clear the meaning given in the dictionary and of im- 
pressing upon the pupil's mind the correct use of the 
word. This method takes time and patience, es- 
pecially for corrections, but the teacher of the sixth 
grade who is trying it feels that she is repaid in the 
greater efficiency of her pupils in their language 
work; ' ' 

The pupils in another room (grade seven) in the 
same building are working hard to see how many can 
have perfect spelling lessons. Every three or four 
weeks the room teacher sends to the principal all 
pupils who have had perfect spelling or but one word 
wrong during the intervening time. The principal 
examines their books and makes a record of their names. 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 69 

The pupils are interested to see if they can have their 
names on the principal's list. For the first three 
weeks there were seven who had correct spelling 
lessons and five who had but one word wTong. For 
the next month fourteen had correct spelling and 
nine had but one word wrong. Besides these there were 
several whose spelling was correct but who had divided 
the words into syllables incorrectly. Every day the 
room teacher writes upon the board the number who 
had correct spelling for the previous lesson. On one 
day there were forty-three correct out of an enroll- 
ment of forty-four. 

My own views upon the subject of spelling are 
well shown in the following quotation from a recent 
report of a Massachusetts Superintendent: "This 
utilitarian point of view furnishes a basis for the 
selection of the words which children are taught to 
spell. In the school of one or two generations ago the 
spelling of many unusual, technical and difficult words 
was taught. Whether the learner understood the mean- 
ing of such words, or had any use for them, or was 
ever likely to have any use for them, was a question 
which did not seem to arise. The fact is that some of 
us learned to spell words in our school days that we 
have never spelled since. Today, however, the point 
of view is entirely changed. Common words are taught, 
words which form the child's vocabulary at home, 
on the playground, and in the school; words which 
he must use in expressing in written form the knowledge 
gained from other school duties ; words which he will 
surely need later in giving written expression to his 
ideas as an adult thinker and worker." 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 



Superintendent Brooks of Boston says: "A ten- 
dency to revive the spelling contests of former days 
is showing itself in the schools. While there are 
grave objections to the introduction of competitive 
contests of a personal nature among children in the 
formative period of their lives, it seems ptobable that 
a reasonable use of spelling contests can be made, 
especially between different sections of the same grade 
in the same school. This will be particularly true if 
the competition is between whole classes rather than 
between the best spellers in each class. If the record 
of ever>' pupil in the class affects the final result, the 
weak spellers will not be neglected in the effort to 
produce a few star performers." 

My own feeling is that this essential and prac- 
tical part of the curriculum needs particular attention 
on the part of all the teachers and I have dwelt upon 
the subject at length in this report as one means 
to impress that fact upon the corps whose members, 
although doing good work, are always ready to tr>- 
and impro\-e upon the past. I want the spelling in 
the schools of Fall River to "loom up" and this can 
be brought about by a little more emphasis on the 
oral side of the subject together with the excellent 
methods that at present exist in some of the buildings. 

The principal of one building of twelve rooms 
reports "The half-year just closing has been an un- 
usually smooth, pleasant and successful one. Never 
since my connection with the school, has there been 
a semester with so few of those problems of adjust- 
ment of misunderstanding and dissatisfaction in which 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



ANXUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 



parent, pupil and teacher are concerned, as during the 
semester just closing. I might also add that there 
has never been a semester before, in which I have not 
felt called upon, as principal, to administer one or 
more corporal punishments." 

' 'We have not been compelled to have our usual 
campaign against cigarettes and tobacco, having had 
but two boys (there may have been more undiscovered) 
who needed counsel and warning. I trust these are 
hopeful signs. They certainly mean pleasanter and 
more satisfactorj' conditions for the principal." 

"We find that our upper grade pupils do quite 
a little outside reading, making considerable use of 
the Public Librarj— a habit which needs to be fostered 
and encouraged. Children's choice of reading should, 
however, be supervised and directed, and this year 
we have been doing more than usual in this line in 
our eighth and ninth grades. Talks have been given 
on choice of reading, and standard children's books 
recommended. Then, in our eighth and ninth grade 
rooms, we have two copies of the "List of Books for 
Home Reading for Boys and Girls in the Public Library 
of Boston," compiled by the Boston Home and School 
Association, and one copy of the "List of Books for 
Boys and Girls in Boston Public Library," published 
by the trustees of the library. Most, if not all, of these 
books are in our Public Library. The pupils have 
access to these- lists and are encouraged to make 
selections from them and are doing so to a considerable 
extent. They are also encouraged to use the excel- 
lent list of books posted in our Public Librarj'. It may

ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 



be interesting to mention in this connection that 
when these lists first came, I went over the shorter 
one with my ninth grade pupiJs, commenting on the 
better known books, I was surprised and pleased to 
find that a Hebrew boy, a great reader, had read all 
of the forty or more books I had mentioned and many 
of those I had not mentioned. It is also interesting 
to note that we have an Italian boy in seventh grade 
who is a great and constant reader, and whose fund of 
general information is much greater than the average 
boy of his age. It is a little surprising to note that 
our two greatest readers are a Hebrew boy and an 
Italian boy." 

The principal of another school reports "The 
Boy Scout Movement is so closely allied to the idea 
of looking out for others that I am pleased to report 
we have two divisions formed by the boys themselves.' ' 

SALARIES. 

At the time of making the appropriations, the 
City Government granted the School Board $15,000 
extra that' the salaries of the teachers might be in- 
creased. A much lai^er amount was asked for by the 
School Department in order that the increase might 
go into effect at the beginning of the year but the Gov- 
ernment could not see its way clear to grant more 
than the $15,000. The amount of increase requested 
by the teachers of the grades was one hundred dol- 
lars per year or $2.50 per week. 

After carefully going into the matter and taking 
into account the fact that other salaries also should 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 43 

be adjusted, it was unanimously voted on April o, 
that "the salary of teachers of the grades including 
substitutes and assistants be increased two and one- 
half dollars per week, the increase to date from the 
opening of school in September." 

At the regular meeting of the Board held June 7, 
it was unanimously voted to increase the salaries 
of teachers in the High School. Normal Training 
School, Fowler(practice} School, of Principals of Gram- 
mar, Intermediate and Primary Schools, Principal's 
Assistants (Grammar) , Kindergartners, of the Sewing 
Teachers, of the Supervisors and of the carriers of the 
children and that this increase should go into effect 
on October 3. 

As the date of opening the schools was postponed 
two weeks, the dates when the increases went into 
effect, both for the grade teachers and the others, 
were postponed for two weeks. To offset this loss 
of time the schools were in session three extra days and 
the teachers attended not only the Annual Bristol 
County Convention but extra meetings and performed 
extra work so that they received their salaries in full 
for the usual fifteen weeks after school opened in 
September. 

One grammar principal speaks of the matter of 
salaries in his report as follows : ' 'The best educational 
investment that the city could have possibly made 
was the raise in pay of the grade teachers. Ne^-er 
have the affairs of this school run so well or so smoothly 
as they have this year. Never has the spirit of the 
school been so good. The higher efficiency secured 



yL.OOgle 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 



must more than justify the resulting increase in ex- 
pense. It is needless to say that the satisfaction and 
calm of the teacher is reflected in the work and deport- 
ment of the pupil.' ' 

Another principal of a building of twelve rooms 
reports "I can but commend the faithfulness of my 
teachers. Perhaps it can be best illustrated by the 
fact that we have had only one tardy mark among the 
teachers and that was due to a belated car." 

The average monthly pay for men teachers in the 
state of Massachusetts is S152.9G and forwomen,$61.82. 
In Bristol County the average monthly pay for women is 
$58.35. In New Bedford the average for men is 
3175.85 and for women, S70.53. 

In Fall River, the largest city in Bristol County 
and third in size in the State of Massachusetts, the 
average monthly pay for men teachers is S144,4S 
and for women, 858.08, So the Fall River men teachers 
receive over $S per month less than the average for 
the state, and over 33 1 less than the amount paid to men 
teachers in New Bedford ; the women teachers of Fall 
River receive over S3 less than the a\"erage for women 
in the state, a small amount less than the a\'erage for 
the county, and over $12 less than the average for 
women in New Bedford. If we compare the pay of 
our teachers with that of teachers of the state outside 
of Bristol County, we sutler all the more by the com- 
parison. These conditions should not exist. 
APPROPRIATIONS. 

I realize that a vast amount is expended on our 
public schools e\-erj- year but I wish to show the re- 



vL.OOgle 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 45 

lation that Fall River bears to other large cities in 
the state in the amount of money raised and expended 
for school purposes. The following is taken from the 
last annual report of the State Board of Education : 

(1) Rank of cities according to the amount 
yielded for each child in the average membership of 
the public schools by the local tax for school support. 

In a total of 354 cities and towns, Boston 
is number 23, Springfield 24,Worcester 43, Lawrence 53, 
Lowell 63, Cambridge 64, New Bedford 77, Lynn 87, 
Somerville 93, Taunton 94, Fall River 145. Of the 
fourteen counties of the state, Bristol County ranks 
number eight.. 

(2) Rank of cities according to the proportion 
of their taxable property appropriated for the support 
of public schools. In the same total of 354 cities 
and towns, Brockton is number 94, Somerville 121, 
Taunton 124, Worcester 175, Lowell 215, Cambridge 
218, Lawrence 221, Springfield 224. Salem 228, Lynn 
240, Fall River 252, Only two of the lai^er cities are 
below Fall River; New Bedford, whose rank on the 
list is 272, and Boston, 327. If Fall River is expected 
to keep upon the educational plane of the other large 
cities even more money than at present must be 
appropriated for the support of the schools. 

EDUCATIONAL PROGRESS, 

Our educational progress during 1910 has partly 
been shown by the increase in salaries, the formation 
of the Grade Teacher's Club, the Anti-tuberculosis 
Exhibit, the donations of public-spirited citizens.

ANNUAL SCHOOL REPOKT. 



REPORT OF THE PRINCIPAL 

OF THE 

B. M. C. Durfee High School. 



Mr. Everett B. Durfee, Superintendent of Schools : 

Once again I am glad to place before you my 
annual report of the progress and necessities of the 
High School. 

Last summer Miss Julia A. Read resigned after 
a service of forty-se\en years in the schools of the city. 
Thirty-seven of these were passed in our High School 
and they were years of remarkable success. Her 
accurate scholarship, her untiring energy, her abhor- 
rence of the least dishonesty and faithlessness, her 
thorough devotion to her work, her lofty ideals, 
all made a lasting impression upon her pupils, and many 
are the men and women of our city who look back 
gratefully to the hours spent under her guidance 
and join with her colleagues in wishing her the 
utmost happiness and prosperity in her retirement. 
Two other teachers also withdrew at the end of 
the school year, Mr. Rollins, who accepted a position 
in Chicago, and Mr. Peabody, who is now teaching 
in New York. These se\'eral vacanices have been 
filled by the appointment of Ralph M. Small as the 
successor of Miss Read in the teaching of Latin, Fred- 



:y Google 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT, 



erick R. Hunt to succeed Mr. Rollins in the depart- 
ment of Greek, and Elizabeth G. Crane to teach 
English and History in place of Mr. Peabody. Mr. 
Small was graduated from Bowdoin College, and has 
since taught in various schools in Massachusetts and 
Maine. Mr. Hunt, after graduation from Williams 
College, took the degree of M. A. in the classics at 
Yale, and has since been occupied in teaching at 
Lafayette College, iliss Crane is a graduate of Boston 
University and comes to us from the High School 
at Dedham. Miss Stevens, who was taken ill in March, 
has been obliged to extend her absence, and Harriet 
D. Proctor, a graduate of Bates College, a teacher of 
experience in the High Schools of Stoughton and 
Hyde Park, and a student in Germany during the 
year 1909 — 1910 has taken charge of the German 
and Mathematical classes of the former. On account 
of the large size of the English classes. Earl M, Benson 
(Wesleyan 1906, and a former instructor at Comwall- 
on-Hudson and Detroit.) has been secured as an addi- 
tional teacher. Mr. Goff's health has also compelled 
him to be away from school both in the spring and 
fall, and his position was satisfactorily filled until 
shortly before Christmas by Mr. Samuel W. Hallett. 
The crowded condition of the school is even more 
distressing than last year, for we have an increase' 
of forty pupils with no additional seating or recitation 
space. While the teachers are devoting a great amount 
of extra energ\-to the attempt to keep up the large 
classes under adverse circumstances and while you, 
Mr. Superintendent, and the School Committee have 



:yCOOglC 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 



done all in your power to help and relieve us, it is of 
course impossible to accomplish results which might 
reasonably have been expected of us a few years ago 
with better surroundings and smaller classes. 

The new athletic constitution has done much to 
raise the standard of sport in our school, and, although 
some amendments may yet be desirable, I feel that 
on the whole the present arrangement is very satis- 
factory. 

Captain Harrison has aroused much additional 
interest and enthusiasm in military matters, and we 
hope soon to submit to you a new constitution for 
the regulation of the uniformed company. 

Our musical organizations still suffer from lack 
of funds, and I wish to renew my recommendation 
that a small sum of money be appropriated from the 
school funds to pay for suitable instruction and exper- 
ienced leadership. 

The Premier has been greatly improved by re- 
cent changes, including a new method of appointing 
the editors. I think it is a decided credit to the school 
at present. 

Our debating society, the Forum, was defeated 
last year by both the Providence and New Bedford 
teams, but the representatives of our school, Messrs. 
Sprague, Crossley, Feitelberg, McGrath, Giblin, and 
Farrell, made a most creditable appearance, even if 
not given the preference by the judges. 

The Class of 1910 gave an entertainment on April 
15th, presenting the operetta, "A Nautical Knot", 
which it repeated on the following afternoon, Satur- 



D,:;-,zPd.yCOOgle

day April 16th. The attendance was large and the 
performance unusually good. Great credit is due to 
Mr. Burley, who had charge of the preparation and 
production. The proceeds were principally devoted 
to the purchase of another stained glass window for 
our assembly hall and to the fund for the Alumni 
Field. 

Upon Friday, May 27th., at our Memorial Day 
Exercises, we were favored with an address by Mr. 
J. Thayer Lincoln, and on June 15th., Founder's Day, 
with one by the Rev. Willard L. Sperry. The remarks 
of both were thoughtful, interesting, and helpful, 
and we were grateful for the opportunity thus afforded 
of listening to them. 

Finally, please allow me, Mr. Superintendent, 
to give expression here to my appreciation of the kindly 
assistance and useful advice which I have received 
throughout the year from you and the School Com- 
mittee, and my gratitude to the Vice-principal and the 
other teachers of the High School for their unvarying 
friendliness and support. 

Most sincerely yours. 

GEORGE F. POPE, 

Principal.

Dear Alma Mater, 

Helper true and tender, 
Now ere we leave thee for life's broader way. 

Garlands we bring to thee, 

Gladly we sing to thee. 
For countless blessings bestowed day by day. 

Sweet was our journey through 

Thought-lands forever new. 
Culling bright blossoms of knowledge and truth ; 

JJow, to the distant grey, 

Unknown paths stretch away 
Rugged, less guarded than haunts of our youth. 

No more we gather here. 

Gone is the last glad year 
Fragrant with flowers of friendship and joy; 

What e'er the future bring. 

Still shall we ever cling 
To these sweet mem'ries that naught can destroy. 

Sadly we yield thee o'er. 

Gladly we'd Unger more, 
In sweet companionship ever to dwell; 

But duty calls us now, 

To life's demand we bow, 
Fond Alma Mater, forever farewell,

COURSES OF STUDY 

B. M. C. Durfee High School. 



Four courses of study, each of four ye^rs, are 
ofEered, namely: 

1. The General Course. In this course, cer- 
tain studies are prescribed, but the pupil may make up 
the remainder of the required hours from a wide range 
of elective studies. Pupils who do not intend to enter 
college, but who desire a good general education, 
are advised to take this course. It is also the course 
advised for pupils who intend to enter a state normal 
school or the city normal training school for teachers. 

2. The College Preparatory Course. This 
course is designed especially for pupils fitting for col- 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgle 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 69 

lege. It is necessarily, in may respects, a difficult 
course. 

3, The Technical Course. This course offers 
a combination of the ordinary high school studies with 
practical work in the use of tools and machines, to- 
gether with a complete course in mechanical drawing, 
technical drafting, and free-hand drawing. 

It is intended for boys preparing for a technical 
school such as the LawTence Scientific School, the 
Massachusetts Institute of Technology or the Wor- 
cester Polytechnic Institute. It is also intended for 
boys who ^"ill probably enter at once, after grad- 
uation from the High School, upon some industrial 
pursuit. 

4. The Commercial Course. This course is de- 
signed to prepare pupils for business pursuits. Besides 
training for the more technical demands of business 
life, it furnishes opportunity for general culture 
through the study of literature, histor>', science, and 
modem language.

NOTES. 



1. The figure in parenthesis after each study 
indicates the number of recitations or exercises a week 
in the study, 

2. One exercise every alternate week in chorus 
singing is required of all pupils in the High School. 

3. Pupils who desire to study physics should 
previously study algebra and plane geometry. 

4. One elective or alternative study rather than 
another, must be chosen subject to possible unavoid- 
able conflicts in the schedule of daily recitations. 

5. All candidates for a diploma on completion of 
the General Course, must satisfactorily complete all 
the required studies of the course and a sufficient num- 
ber of the elective.studies to make a total of sixteen 
weekly periods of prepared recitations; except in the 
fourth year, where a total of twenty weekly periods 
of prepared recitations is required. 

■6. Pupils in the College Preparatory Course are 
allowed five years, instead of four, for completing the 
course, if parents make such requests in writing and 
show cause, in which case a smaller number of studies 
is pursued each year. 

7. The right of declining to form a division of pu- 
pils in an elective or alternative study is reserved, unless 
there be at least twenty-five applicants in the first 
year class, twenty in the second year class, fifteen 
in the junior class and ten in the senior class; and 
no divisions separate from under graduates will be 
formed for graduate pupils.

REPORT OF THE PRINCIPAL 
Normal Training School. 



Mr. Everett B. Durfee, Superintendent of Schools. 

The overcrowded condition of the normal depart- 
ment of the school, the need of a longer course so 
that the pupil-teacher may have more time to ob- 
serve and to take the work in practise more slowly, 
and the need of another teacher to work in the normal 
department have all been discussed in previous re- 
ports and have been favorably considered by pre- 
vious committees, I trust that soon, as an outcome 
of discussion and consideration, we may have more 
help and more room. 

In the training classes, the most discouraging 
study we have to consider with the pupil-teachers, 
is the subject of English. Their studied written 
English is, in the main, correct, but it is the quick 
speech and the exposition, written on demand, that 
show how little power to express and record they 
have. 

You are aware of this I know, and we know full 
well that it is not the fault of any one school. If it 
lies anywhere, I think it may be in the false conception 
that is given children in the lower grades, when success 
in spelling means to them the power to write correctly 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



84 ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 

a number of words studied by them a few hours or 
a day previously; or when language work means to 
them the copied work or the making of detached 
sentences. 

As an incentive to more careful work in this 
subject, I would recommend that, in the future, all 
entrance examination papers, except those in mathe- 
matics, be given two marks, one for correct expression 
and one for subject matter. I would like to continue 
to use this system in marking the pupil-teachers 
throughout their course in this school. In this way more 
prominence will be given to the most important 
subject in the curriculum and the pupil-teachers will 
come to understand better its importance. 

Today the schools of the city are being recruited 
chiefly from graduates of this school. There have 
been graduated in the fourteen years of my princi- 
palship over two hundred and twenty-five teachers. Of 
this number more than one hundred and seventy-five are 
still teaching in the primary and grammar grades 
of this city. Thus it is that of the teachers enrolled 
in the schools, two-fifths are graduates of this school. 
Pursuing the inquiry further I find that of the twenty- 
two assistant-principals twelve are graduates of this 
school. 

If, as I have pointed out, the graduates of the 
Training School are to fill many and important places 
in the teaching corps of the city, it is necessary that 
this school should be in close touch, not only with the 
needs of the teaching profession in general, but also 
with the needs of those who are to become teachers 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 85 

in our own dty schools. It is necessary that the 
ideals and aims of this school should be those of the 
great city system, in which so many of the graduates 
are to carry out the lessons learned here. 

Through constant intercourse with state normal 
schools by study and reading the teachers here 
have tried to become conversant with the ideals and 
aims of the profession and to show to the young 
teachers the importance of preparation for it and of 
doing honest thorough work when they shall go to 
teach in other schools of the city. These teachers 
know how needful it is that the young woman shall 
grow to respect the profession she is to enter. 

So it is with discouragement we hear the prac- 
tices of this school decried by some in authority in 
the other schools; when, for instance, the practice 
of staying after school to help the slower children is 
forbidden or the young teacher is advised that she is not 
paid for more than the prescribed school hours of work. 

Now this does a threefold harm. Not only does 
it discountenance the school which has taught tihat 
the slower third of a class must be helped and en- 
couraged by the almost individual instruction it can 
receive before and after school ; not only does it thereby 
retard the progress of the children but, more seriously 
still, it often causes the young teacher to take the step 
downward to the level held by so many workers 
who have no professional standing to maintain. 

There is no other profession in the state that 
requires so little time in preparation, and, on the other 
hand, there is no profession in which the members

entering upon it begin to earn so soon an assured 
salary. So much the more, then, should we be willing 
to be judged by results and to make them as fine as 
they ought to be regardless of time and effort. 

Owing to the small number of pupil-teachers 
in the class of 1910, Miss Gertrude Hurley, a grad- 
uate of the school was made substitute teacher in charge 
of one of the rooms. She did very acceptable work. 
This fall she has been returned again to us for work 
with special classes. 

For the Memorial Day exercises this year we 
were gratified to have with us Judge John J. Mc- 

Donough, who gave an impressive talk on the lessons 
of the day. 

Mr. Comstock, of the High School, has kindly 
given two talks, one to the seniors on Pompeii, 
and one to the school at the Columbus Day cele- 
bration. Both were entert:iining and instructive. 

In February, the annual Mothers' Meeting was 
held with the usual attendance. The mothers were 
pleasantly entertained by the graduates and seniors 
of the school with music and recitations. Home 
and school are brought near together through these 
delightful evenings. 

In April the class of 1910 presented to the school 
a cast, Cupid with Bow, to be placed in one of the 
rooms. Miss Graham, class president, made the pre- 
sentation and we all enjoyed at the same time the 
reception given by the seniors to the juniors.

REPORT OF THE - 

Supervisor of Drawing. 

Mr. Everett B. Durfee, Superintendent of Schools. 

The progress that has been made in the art work 
in our schools during the past few years is very en- 
couraging. The aim has been to treat the subject 
not only from the educational side but also from the 
aesthetic and the practical, and we have so far suc- 
ceeded in this aim that the pupils now feel it an essen- 
tial element in their work. 

The instructions given during the drawing periods 
are of such a nature as to prove helpful to the child 
in developing power for better self-expression and in 
making him an independent thinker and worker. 
The work in the grammar grades is carried along on 
the foundation laid in the primary department and 
shows a regular advance over the primary work. 

The teachers have availed themselves of every 
opportunity offered for self betterment in the work 
and have assisted greatly in the improvement of this 
department in our schools. 

I would suggest that provision for a high school 
course in Art be considered. I feel that every high 
school pupil ought to have the advantage of at least 
one year of training in this work with the privilege 
of two years if desired. 

In my last report I wrote that I had the largest 
number of schools under the super\'ision of any one 
Super\'isor of Drawing in New England, and as three

new schools are to be opened I ask that two assist- 
ants be given me, one to devote all the time to the 
high school work and one to assist in the primary 
grades, thus enabling me to give more thorough 
attention where it might be needed. 

I would suggest a course of cardboard construction 
be added to our outline as Manual Training is soon to 
be introduced, as this could be carried on by the boys 
while the girls are sewing. 

The Training Class work is planned to fit the 
students to teach in all grades. They are prepared by 
theory, observation of model lessons, demonstration 
and practical training. Great stress is laid upon 
blackboard drawing as one of the greatest factors 
in creating interest and as the most direct and practical 
way to produce a permanent impression upon a child's 
mind. 

We have been using new Art Text Books in the 
Normal School and have found them to be of so 
great value, that I hope the Drawing Committee 
will see fit to furnish a set for every school. 

Once more I ask for better accommodations for 
the Free Hand Evening Drawing School. I hope the 
Committee will try to find permanent quarters in the 
new high school. 

I wish to express my thanks to the teachers for 
their untiring and hearty co-operation at all times and 
to the Superintendent of Schools for his helpful interest. 
Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIAM E. BRALEY, 

Supervisor of Drawing,

REPORT OF THE 
Supervisor of Music. 

Mr. Everett B. Durfee, Superintendent of Schools. 

In compliance with your request I am pleased to 
present my annual report. 

In the first nine grades we have experienced no 
serious interruptions during the past year, and conse- 
quently it has been possible to secure favorable results 
in nearly all these grades. Since the beginning of the 
September term, we have made a slight change in 
the interval singing of the first and second grades 
by introducing a higher key for this drill work. I have 
always endeavored to teach children to use a light 
and easy quality of tone in singing, and it is in hope of 
securing better results in this direction that the change 
has been made, it being generally conceded that the 
use of the upper tones of children's voices is more 
conducive to proper quality than the lower. In some 
schools I have visited it is customary to give a little 
time to mere vocal drill; with young children this 
avails little, for if pupils are not carefully watched 
and compelled to correct every mistake in tone dur- 
ing the rest of the lesson, the quality will be poor in 
spite of the vocal drill. In our schools no time is 
given to such drill, but as far as possible we aim to have 
scales, intervals, exercises and songs rendered with 
the correct quality, endeavoring to teach the children 
not only to use, but to love and appreciate good tones. 



yL.OOgle 



92 ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 

No useless time is spent in learning the answers 
to a long list of questions that might easily be asked 
regarding the notation of music, but with the excep- 
tion of learning a few fundamental points, the chief 
portion of the time is devoted to actual singing, in 
which the pupils take greater pleasure, and from which 
they derive more benefit than from memorizing 
facts about music. 

Not long since my attention was called to an 
item in an educational paper, in which the writer 
advocated doing away with a large part of practise 
work in drawing in the schools, and substituting the 
study of pictures, works of art etc. ; he also advo- 
cated the abolishing of scale and exercise singing, 
in fact all except song singing; he would substitute 
therefor the study of music through the ear only, 
using self-players tor this purpose. It seems very 
desirable that people should learn to listen to music 
and to appreciate what is heard, and for older pupils 
or even those of grammar or intermediate school 
age, the wise use of good self-players can be made 
especially helpful in this direction, but in view of the 
natural self activity of the child and his desire to "do 
things", it seems to me incorrect to deprive the 
pupil of the opportunity to "learn by doing," and 
substitute therefor learning by not doing; we should 
welcome all these musical inventions as a means 
of helping us to go further in our study of music 
rather than of abbreviating it. 

Owing to the large number of buildings to be 
visited it is impossible for me to give as much time 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 



to any one as is really needed; especially is this 
true in the high school where the only music lessons 
are these given by the Supervisor; this, together 
with the very crowded condition of the school, tends 
to produce unsatisfactory results and emphasizes 
the need of an assistant. 

Our training school continues to do valuable 
service in preparing teachers for the music work, 
although (owing to lack of time) the instruction 
and preparation cannot be complete. Occasionally 
a person enters the school who is unable to reap the 
full benefit of the instruction given, because of in- 
sufficient previous preparation, but this is not true of 
the lai^e majority. A Boston teacher was recently com- 
menting on the inability of many new teachers to teach 
the music, and expressed the idea that all Normal 
Schools should at least require every graduate to sing 
through the music of some school course. In the 
Osbom Normal Training School the pupil teachers 
are required to sing a large portion of the music used 
in our primary, intermediate and some of the gram- 
mar grades, and also study methods of teaching the 
same; in addition to this, opportunity is given for 
actual practice with pupils. 

To all who have co-operated so heartily in the 
work, I wish to express my sincere appreciation 
of the excellent service rendered. I thank you, Mr. 
Superintendent, for your continued interest and ef- 
forts to promote the work in which I am engaged. 
Respectfully submitted, 
W. J. TITCOMB.

94 ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 

REPORT OF THE 
Supervisor of Reading, 

Mr. Everett B. Durfee, Superintendent of Schools. 

School reading is generally thought of as meaning 
nothing but reading aloud. This idea is so prevalent 
and deep-rooted that, when we want to know whether 
a. child understands what he is reading, or catches 
the meaning of a lesson, we ask him to read it aloud. 
The practice has been to teach children to read aloud 
even before they have been trained by silent reading 
to get the thought of a lesson. This method is no 
doubt the chief cause of poor oral reading. The child 
becomes careless and indifferent about his reading 
because he has no ability to get the thought from the 
printed page. Earnest teachers realizing that the 
ability to get thought from print rapidly and accur- 
rately is the foundation of good oral reading, are laying 
greater emphasis on silent reading. Even in the primary 
grades this idea is being applied to the daily work, 
and has led to the adoption of many new methods 
in teaching. In the schools of a neighboring city they 
are now comparing and testing the merits of three 
methods of reading, the Aldine Method, The Progres- 
sive Road to Reading and The Ward Method. The 
underlying thought in all these is the attempt to teach 
children to read independently. 

In the lower primary grades, after the lesson 
has once been read aloud, the children re-read it silent- 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 9o 

ly at their seats. Then several children take turns 
in reading the whole lesson aloud to the class, while 
the others pay close attention to the lines read. The 
whole class is sent to the blackboard to write from 
memory words which occur in their reading lessons. 
In schools where this is the daily practice the child- 
ren show gain in the power to write many simple words 
correctly, quickly and legibly. The ability to make 
such- rapid mental pictures of words should make 
children good spellers. 

In the early fall at grade meetings of the teachers 
it was suggested that more time be given to silent 
reading or the getting of the thought from the read- 
ing lesson, and less time to oral reading. In a lesson, 
say of thirty minutes, twenty minutes might be spent 
in questioning for the thought, in lightening up un- 
familiar words and phrases, and in the reading of 
expressive bits here and there by the teacher and the 
pupils; the remaining ten minutes might then be 
given to oral reading. It was also suggested that 
it would be well for each child, beginning with the 
first grade, to know at least three short stories, and 
that opportunities might be given to the children 
to tell these stories in clear, distinct tones. The poems 
taught in the grades were talked over and changes 
suggested by the teachers were made. Books for the 
children to read and books for the teachers to read 
to the children were mentioned. In the grammar 
grades, the teachers were urged to encourage their 
pupils to take books from the Public Library and to 
allow the children to read chapters from them to their 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 



classmates. In this way the teachers could get in 
touch with what the children like to read and could 
also suggest to then:i books worth reading. 

Following out the suggestions at grade meetings 
many of the teachers have taken the whole of one 
reading period for the silent reading, requiring the 
children to read aloud only the conversational and 
picturesque paragraphs. Many interesting and sat- 
isfactory lessons have been given by following this 
plan. The children in one class chuckled over Rip 
Van Winkle, and volunteered criticisms of Rip and 
his wife, and also asked pertinent questions about 
situations. In another class, while reading about The 
Gorgon's Head, a little boy in the fifth grade exclaimed, 
"My. it makes your heart beat, doesn't it!" In another 
class, the chapter about The Eye in the Gulick series 
led to questions from the children and statements 
of what they knew about the eye. These were vol- 
untary statements. Again, Haiv the Charter was Saved 
drew questions and opinions from the children that 
the oral reading of a lesson never could have suggested. 

In this work, as in all the other lessons where 
the classes are large, half or three-fourths of the child- 
ren take an active part, while the remaining children 
find it difficult to keep up with their classmates. 
Where the classes are smaller, however, the teacher 
is able to reach every child. 

In all the grades, beginning with the fifth, vocal 
drills have been given to help the children to acquire 
better tones, and to help them to speak with clear- 
ness and distinct articulation. Children, however. 



D,gH,zed.yGOOgIe 



ANXUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 



do not realize that an erect carriage of the body, and 
right breathing are essential for good tones. These 
should be taught to them during their gymnastics. 
Here again, with large classes, it is difficult for the 
teachers to reach all the pupils. 

In previous reports I have spoken about the need 
of two more primers in the lowest grade. I should 
like to speak of this need again, and should like also to 
suggest that more prose matter is needed in some of 
the eighth and the ninth grades. Many of the teachers 
in those grades have some of the books that remained 
in their rooms when the circulating library was dis- 
continued; in other schools those books have gone to 
pieces. For instance, some of the pupils in the ninth 
grade are reading Tales from Shakespeare; some are 
reading from Masterpieces of American Literature, and 
so forth ; others are reading only from Julius C<rsar 
and The Merchant of Venice; and others still from old 
reading books. A good list of supplementary reading 
is needed in all the grades of the schools. New and 
up-to-date books are always an inspiration to both 
the pupils and the teachers; then, too, these books 
help to keep teachers and pupils abreast of the times 
and add joy to the work in the school-room. 

I am deeply grateful to the teachers for their 
hearty cooperation, and to the Superintendent and 
the School Committee for their sympathy and encour- 
agement. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARGARET T. HURLEY. 
Supervisor of Reading.

REPORT OH THE 
Supervisor of Sewing. 



Mr. Everett B. Durfee, Superintendent of Schools. 

In these days of sewing machines and ready made 
garments, it would seem, at first sight, that the teach- 
ing of sewing in the public schools was unnecessar>- 
but, when the repairing of garments and the making 
of household articles are considered, a knowledge 
of the use of the needle in what is commonly termed 
' 'plain sewing' ' is invaluable to the economics of the 
family. 

During the period that instruction in sewing 
has been given to the girls of the fourth, fifth, sixth 
and seventh grades in our public schools, the point 
in view has been and continues to be, not to make 
dressmakers or even seamstresses, but to teach each 
girl before she reaches the eighth grade all the 
stitches necessary in plain sewing, and how to use 
them in patching, hemming, darning, gathering, 
sewing on hooks and eyes, also buttons, putting on 
bands, making button holes and other things neces- 
sar\' in plain sewing, for we realize that power to do 
lies in the ability to apply knowledge acquired. 

The outline of work is practically the same as 
that of last year, with the slight changes that seemed 
advisable ; the time allowed also remains the same, one- 



:yCOOgle 



ANNUAL SCHOOL REPORT. 



half hour a week in the fourth and fifth grades, and 
three-quarters of an hour in the sixth and seventh 
grades. 

There are two thousand seven hundred and 
twenty-nine girls receiving instruction in this branch 
under the direction of six teachers. 

In September Elizabeth B. Ward, a graduate 
of the Fitchburg Normal School, was added to the 
corps, thereby greatly facilitating the work. 

The teachers in this department have been 
faithful in the discharge of their duties and the in- 
crease of salary has been an incentive to added inter- 
est in their work. 

I would recommend that in the prospective 
Administration Building on Anawan Street, one 
room be set apart for the use of the super\'isors in 
our public schools. 

The department of sewing would greatly appre- 
ciate the use of such a room where meetings could be 
held and matters pertaining to the interest of the work 
be discussed. 

We feel that this department is greatly indebted 
to Miss Susan H. Wixon for her deep interest in the 
advancement of this branch of manual training among 
the girls in our public schools. 

We would thank the teachers, in whose grades 
sewing is taught, for the support and kind interest 
shown this department during the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
ALICE M. RUSSELL. 

Supervisor of Sewing.
