The academic work was displayed to advantage from the first grade to the High school and was the source of much favorable comment on ttie part of iho patrons. The Washing? ton and Lee chart attracted consid? erable attention. The local industries, Including tbo ? tlsh and crab, were treated by the pupils of all the grades and tho es says on St. John's church and His? toric llnmpton were ably handled by tho students of the'three schools. The High School Exhibit. Tito exhibit m this department was far beyond the hopes of the mo3t sagtttne.

Anton's the special exhibits of the High School, the department of busi? ness took rank with the first. This work was opened in September and all the work embraced la of strictly business use. After bookkeeping and shorthand, special emphasis lias been placed on penmanship and rapid calculations. The penmanship exhibit showed some excellent specimens of muscular movement, first the drills and then plain, easily written penmanship; leg ii'lllty and speed being aparently the first consideration. For first year work these specimens showed excel lent student work. The rap'/ calcu? lation work was particularly interest? ing and useful. Tho sheets showed timed examples in interest, invoicing, multiplication ami addition, some of these consisting of ten-item sheets in interest and invoicing correctly done in one minute and 5 seconds: others show 300 figures added in three min? utes, thirty-five seconds?all <1 ?t rirsl year work. Commercial arithmetic, was represented by some practical every-day problems, partial note set? tlements, equation of accounts, ship settlements, etc. The touch^hiethotl Is employed in the typo-writing de? partment and the specimens shown were particularly fine, Including from first chart, lessons to the most diffi? cult tabulating, all done entirely by touch. Some very neat notes were contrib? uted by the shorthand olassosv?aman? uensis, letter and reporting notes, ac? companied by transcripts.
