EAST SALEM SCHOOL,
Second Visit by Our Kcportcr He
Speaks Favorably of What Ho
When our reporter visited t he
East Snlem school last week, his
work was but partially performed, as
lie could spare time to visit but five
of the class rooms. He published a
brief account of what he saw there,
which seems to have been read with
general interest. That the remain
ing teachers and their classes, in
that handsome and commodious
building, mny not feel themselves
slighted, our newspaper man spent
yesterday in watchiiiR their studies,
and below is a report of what he
I'KOF. S. A. HANDLE.
The first room encountered in the
right ns the visitor enters the build
ing is presided over by Supt. Ran
die. This cllieient educator, beside
performing the duties of city super
intendent, has charge of the high
est grade in our public schools, class
A, grade 1. This furnishes him all
the employment he can conven
iently attend to, and during the
days he is absent visiting tho other
schools, his place is supplied by Mr.
Jlyers, who acts as supernumerary
in addition to his" duties as writing
In Prof. Handle's room wo found
25 scholars present who were busy
on an epistolary exercise. They were
at work on the black board, writing
the address and close to a letter of
application. These boys and girls
were supposed to be asking em
ployment, and they were required
to state their qualifications and to
furnish endorsements as to their fit
ness. In the performance of such a
task neatness and correctness should
be observed, as any exposure of il
literacy would be fatal to their out
start in life. The professor produced
a package of letters written by his
pupils, as examples of their skill in
tills form of composition, which
were really creditable for the busi
ness like air that pervaded them,
and tho modesty with which their
claims were set forth. Tho average
of the writing in this whole building
is good, which is evidence that Mr.
Myers faithfully performs his task.
MISS THUO. VAN WAGNER
was next visited, who has the B
class of grade 2. This lady reports
48 scholars enrolled, 43 were present.
At tho reporter's request 20 words
of two and three syllables were given
to the school, as a spelling exercise,
written on the blackboard. About
twenty scholars took part in tho
work. The visitor questioned them
ou uio nominative ami possessive
rcwesof the nouns they had written,
requiring them to change the
apostrophe to indicate the singular
or plural number. They ac
quitted themselves creditably in
mis (iniicuit exercise. A lew ques
tions in grammar were next put to
tlie scholars, who showed a readiness
in naming the parts of speech, but
they fell into some confusion over
the conjugation of verbs and inflox
ion of personal pronouns. Tho
fourth reader is used in this room,
and in arithmetic the scholars nre
struggling with long division.

Jourdain had been talking prose all
his life without knowing it; and this

vagary of a doctrinaire. Miss

and her creditable work is shown in
her school. On the second floor
MISS LELLA WATE1SB
teaches class A of grado 4. Thirty-
one scholars were at their desks. A
reading lesson (in the second reader)
was llrst given, in which half a
score fluent and correct readers took
part, then a spelling exercise was
set them, which was fairly done. In
grammar these little tyros could
readily tell nouns, adjectives and
verbs, further their philologic learn
ing did not extend. This study is
generally regarded as a bugbear in
schools, but in a little talk with
these scholars on grammar they
showed interest and intelligence.
The last school visited was that
MISS EMILY IIKKELET.
who has the A class of grade 3.
Her book has 50 names enrolled,
though a count of noses showed but
38 present. Mental arithmetic was
engaging tho school when the re
porter entered ; complex numbers
being reduced to improper fractions.
This exercise of the memory and
the reasoning faculties causes a good
deal of llpundering, but, with the
aid of a littlo judicious prompting,
they generally work the problem
through their system and come out
by the teacher with a brief cate
chetical excursion, for the purpose
of testing the thoroughness of the
scholars in the work they have gone
through. The examination was
By this time the clock pointed to
3:15 ; the welcome sound'of the bell
was heard ; the scholars cleared
their desks, and sat in readiness to
take part in the parade of dismissal.
A march was played on the piano
in the lower hall ; each room in suc
cession disgorged its inmates ; these
several contingents fell into column,
which under the eye of the princi
pal, and the espionage of four moni
tors, marched through tho school
ground without noise and without
breaking line and then separated for
their various homes.
To Superintendent Handle and all
the teaehers visited, our reporter ex
presses his wannest obligations for
the courtesy and kindness extended
