AMONG THE SCHOOLS.
INTERKS , INTO THK
MANUAL TRAINING SCHOOL. .
Four High School Glrla Who 1'rofor Cur
pontry to Coolcory Notes From tho
Lennox Untitling A School Ten Tho
High School Concert.
Nos. C24 and 026 O street, tho manual train
ing schools, aro an unprotcntious pair of two
story brick houses. Extenslvo back buildings
havo been added, so that they arc qulto com
modious. A long and narrow hall leads to a
back room, whero models of blocks aro piled
up on tables round tho wall for tho drawing
classes, who work at desks in tho front room.
It is not tho design of tho toacbers of these
schools to do anything but to train tho eye for
proportions and tho hand to obey tho mind.
A boy or girl graduating from tho training
school will know a good many usoful things
and have an idea whether his talent
is for mechanics, art, or what ho
is adaptod for. Bluo paper is tho
foundation for these drawing lessons, and let
tering, with copying, tracing, etc., arc well
brought out. Across a little courtyard ono
enters tho shops, where a natty little ongine
runs a dozen or two of turning lathes, and
keep up the fires of a dozen or more anvils.
The young men seemed to take a great deal of
interest in their work under their enthusiastic
director In iron work, Mr. A.1 1. Gardnor, who
is a graduate of tho School of Technology in
Boston. Mr. O'Brien is in chargo of tho car
penter shop up stairs. There rows of work
benches are faced by racks of saws, planes,
files, hammers, squares, and other tools. Each
lad is expected to leave tho bonch ho has occu-
Slcd clean and in good order when ho is through
is two hours' exercise, that tho class follow
ing may not lose time. Boxes, stools, and
othor specimens of designing and work do
credit to teacher and pupfi. But all tho
benches aro not occupied by boys. There were
four High School girls who preferred learning
to do carpentry to learning to bo expert cooks.
Miss Mary Little, Miss Priest, Miss Purvis,
and Mi6s Jones aro the girls who prefer to
work in wood Instead of iho kitchen. They
were not at their benches, but Mr. O'Brien let
tho reporter as a great privilege peep at their
neatly folded aprons in tho bench drawers. It
may be of Interest to mention that there are
several boys in tho girls' cooking school from
choice, and they will probably bloom out by-and-by
into great chefs, caterers, or hotel
keepers. The general director of the Manual
Training School is Mr. Chamberlin, from the
Worcester Polytechnic Training School.
Miss E. L. Macartney, of the sixth grade,
Bassett School, has rosigned."
Miss J. A. Browne, of th9 Lenox School, has
been teaching a quarter of a century.
The High School commencemont has been
set for Monday evening, May 18, In the Acad
emy of Music.
There is one young man, Ichl Nakayama,
from Kannamur Grumiaken, Japan, in the
High School on O street. He is said to be a
very bright student.
Mr. C. A..Davls.Is. principal of the Business
High School in tho Thompson Building, on
Twelfth street, between K and L streets, with
a branch in the Franklin.
Mr. W. B. Powell and Trustee Gregory paid
a visit to Meridian Hill Thursday in search of
a site for a public school building in that
vicinity, but they did not come to a decision.
Mr. J. F., McNab, director of iron work in
the manual training class, High School, has
resigned to take a position in the Patent
Office. He will bo succeeded by Mr. A. R.
On tho 29th of May the annual competitive
drill will take place in the Acadoiny of Music.
Six companies will participate, and a beauti

There are two military drills a week on tho
boys' play-ground of tho O-street High School.
It is a pleasant sight to see those young men
go through tho manual of armB, Tho principal
said: "Discipline is very much improved by
these military drills. Tho boys learn to
obey unquestioningly tho word of command.
Henco I consider that this discipline of the
scnooi is improveu oy tnose anus."
Some of tho pupils of tho High School are
making groat preparations for tho annual May
concert to bo given by the school orchestra.
This musical club is not of tho ordinary
amateur typo, being mostly composed of mem
bers of Professor Casper's Wilhelml Club or
tho Georgetown Orchestra. Tho concert will
occur about May 15. Tho octotto trained by
Mr. Warner that did such good service in the
April concert will assist.
Tho Central High School on O street, be
tween Sixth and Seventh streets, contains
enough souls to stock a small town. Thore
are now In this building alone a thousand
pupils, while tho Capitol Hill School, the
Curtis School In Georgetown, and the Busi
ness School are training seven hundred moro
young men and women for life's duties.
There are thirty-eight regular teachers in tho
high schools, Independent of teachers of
music, languages, manual training, drawing,
Miss Victoria L. Nourso, principal of tho
Lenox 8chool, has had tho grip. There is
great good feeling existing between tho
tcaohers in this building, They havo clubbed
together and hired a piano, which they placed
in tho lower central nail. Then they drilled
the boys aud girls to march in and out to
music. Tho children enjoy it immensely.
Most young people like to dance, and
dancing is a graceful and healthful exercise,
so tho Lenox teachers thought it a good thing
to devote a few minute3 on Fridays to it, tho
older pupils who know how teaching tho
younger ones tho steps and figures of a contra
dance or quadrille. Consequently, tho scholars
in the Lenox think so much of their teachers and
school thatthev resisted tho charms of the
big circus on Wednesday la6t, when, contrary
to the usual custom, every scat was occupied
in the fourth grade, which is composed of
children who usually run after a brass baud.
A tea was given on Thursday afternoon by
the young ladles in the eighth grade of the
Peabody School, Capitol Hill, in the hall of the
