Supt. Perry made a very interesting reporr of the public schools this year from which the following extract is taken: The flrst item of such a report naturally concerns the facts of attendance ; and as helping to interpret som e of these facts two census items of the city are here introduced. Populatiou of the school district, esti mated, 10,000. School population betweeu 5 and 20 years, 3,036. STATISTÍCS OP THE SCHOOLS. The above table shows a total increase of 151 in enrollmentover that of the preceding Vear. Of this increase 112 were in the primary grades, 7 in the grammar grados, and 32 in the High School. In the first grade 217 had not previously been in any school, and of these 115 were only five years of age. The increase in the Primary Department for the past two years, amounting to 231, has made unusual, demanda upon our school accomodations. cept one room in the 5th ward, not available, every echoolroom iu the city, besides one rented room, has been occupied, while some of themhave been too much crowded all the year. By employing cadet assistants in sucli rooms the classes have been carried through with reasouable success. It is evident that the addition to the first ward building was decided upon none too soon. It is fin honor for any pupil (as it is also for his teacher) to maintain an unbroken attendance for a whole year; henee we print annually the naines of sucli pupils as have been neither absent nor tardy during the preceding year.
