From theso figures it will bo seen that thoro

nbout V0 per cent, of tho number inrollcd
ranking at least 1,100 lo 1,200 scholars now en
rolled. At tho timo of our last report there
woro 371 scolars in privato schools nnd ono hun
dred nnd soventy-ono in tho Mcchanlcsvillofreo
school, making n total attendance in nil tho
Knoxvilln schools of 1,411. Now, taking it for
grantod that tho other schools havo increased
in tho samo ratio as tho freo schools, it would
incroaso tho attendance nt tho privato institu
tions of learning from 371 to Girt, and tho Mo
chnnicsvilln freo school from 170 to 251, a total,
outside of the city Echools of 797, nnd a grand
total of pupils receiving instructions now in
Knoxvillo of 1,800. "Wo do not know theso
figures, outsido of tho freo schools to bo correct,
but do bolievo them to bo more than probable
from tho glowing prospects under which the
spsainn wna rnmmitnpwl hv thnm. This is a
good showing for Knoxvllfe. yet this number
can bo considerably increased, particularly in
tho froo schools, by n proper appreciation of
their merits, and by our citizens putting tnoir
shoulder to tho wheel with a doterminntion to
mako thorn a succoss. Theso 1,003 children in
tho freo schools aro taucbt by 20 thoroughly
competent tcachors, making an nvcrneo of G3
scholars to each tonchcr New scholars aro still
boing enrolled every Friday evening and wo
trust tho number will soon bo increased suffi
ciently to warrant tho ongagemont of ten moro
teachers. Wo aro clad that this system Is nnd

building up an Iinmigration Society which will
surpass any other in eiieotivonoss.

to four or fivo hundred pounds, and offered tho

Country girls aro not a whit behind their me
tropolitan sisters in tho natural elements of love
liness, but it must bo conceded that the city
belles best understand tho art of preserving nnd
heightening their personal boauty. Tho most
perfect features loso half their attraction unless
tho complexion is properly cared for, nnd if the
pretty girls of the rural districts wish tocompeto
with tho "Fairstars" of tho fashionable world in
refined attractions, thoy must pay duo attention
to this important point. They ought to know,
for the fact is notorious, that Hagan's Magnolia
Balm imparts to tho skin a dolicate, pearly np
pearanco, unproduceablo by nny other prepara
tion under tho sun. No matter how tho cutlclo
may havo bscn roughened by oxposuro or dis
colored by the sun, the Balm will rendorit soft
pliable, and remove every blemish.
