The deficiency shown in this re

after the opening of the school in
September last, that the furnace for
lheating the school that had been in
use for sixteen years was completely
burned oulit and it was impossible
to go on witlhout renewing this heat
nig aparatius except by endangering
the burning of the building and the
comn1fort of the children. This dis
covery. however. was not made until
after colnsiderafle outilav had been
made inl painfin the building and
renewinv (lie roof. This painting and
furnace and otlier necessary expendi
tuies of molney for furniture etc. nee
(ssi tateid thle out lay of nearly a thlons
andl dollars. These expendituarcs ex
plain thle reasons why the money for
the current expenses of the school
did not leave a balance on hand as
usual. W e are pleased, however, to
state that with this renewed furnace
lie property is in good shape and thle
icomne for thle niext year~ should carry,
