school 91 months. The first ward colored.

i:I mouth. The above record will compare
0, favorably with any parish in the State",i
x. the parish of Orleans not excepted:.
:its In connection with the 'above, I wounld
he ask the consideration 'of your Honorable'

it t to open all schools except the colored ones

nary. The severe heat proves a gret
0 hindrance to regular attendance in th .
uearly summer season. Also, if, when dfitP
to mouths' time is given to the country dolor
re. ed schools, that the schools open in De.
f ur comber instead of adding the nmlth ii}
May when the pupils are busy It thei

e We may consider as another sign of the
favorable improvement of our .choole, the
W L$ steps that have been taken to provide
the snitable buildings and fnrnittre for thie
trce country schools. With but about two exl..
t ceptions, the school houses of the whitS
schools are comfortable and donmutpoiota
ti to and except four, are practically owned b
ask- the Board. Some of these buildhigs *at
tio m not yet finished, but expect to be soon. It
is hoped that this improvement will cont
tinue until every schbol basna good build=
ing and good furniture, and every build
