Wo see by the report of (lie condition
of tho Cairo Public Bcbool for Decem
ber that tho uumbor of scholars enrolled
Is' 575; average dally uttenduuee, 402;
number of cases of tardiness during tho

there werel0,C60 chances for pupils to bo
tardy during tho month, and that cold
.weather, wlud, snows, mud aud rain In
terposed, It Is almost surprising that tho
attendance was so nearly perfoct. To
put tho matter In a different light, wo
huvo 850 instances of punctuality in this
respect against euo of tardiness. In live
of tho rooms, aggregating 220 pupils,
there was not a slnglo belatod pupil du
ring the month. In ono other room,
numbering 40 pupils, there was ono; In
another room, where there are 80 little,
