Institute ot Learning fur the Blind.
"We have received the annual
report of Dr, Frank Rainey,
Superintendent of the Texas In
stitution of Learning tor the
Blind at Austin, for tho fiscal
year ending August 31, 1S77.
Dr. Ralnoy calls especial atten
tion to the fact that this insti
tution is not in any sense an
asylum, as the blind are not
received here simply to be taken
care ot by the State, but that
it is nothing more or less than
an "Institution of Learning" or
a "Free School tor the Blind,"
where these untortnnata? arc
educated at the public expense,
the same as seeing children are,
at the ordinary free schools. A
strong appeal is made in favor
of the blind, who are particu
larly helpless. At this institu
tion they are educated and
learned a trade or profession
by which they are made self
supporting. The buildings have been put
in a fair condition of repair.
The ordinary branches of a com
mon school education 'are
taught; also, music. The boys
are learned broom, pillow and
mattress making, the girls bead
work, tewing, cutting, etc. The
progress of the boys is wonder
ful as compared with the ad
vancement made in other
sc'iools. During the past ses
sion sixty-five pupils, twenty
eight males and thirty-seven
females, -were admitted. There
nre forty-five blind children of
suitable ages in the State, who
are not in school. The Legis
lature from an oversight failed
to make an appropriation to
enlarge the building?. The to
tal expense ot the institution
for the year was 516,921.99.
There are many interesting
features in the report.

Corn is a dull sale in Bas
trop at twenty-five cents a
bushels, says tho Advertiser.
This shows the disadvantage ot
not having railroad connections.
In Illinois, a State that has
more miles of railroad than any
other State in the Union, it is
doubtful whether corn is sold as
cheap as twenty-five cents a
bushel. Here in Texas we can
raise almost as much corn to the
aere as can be raised in Illi

duce corn as a paying crop, on
much about the same plan as
