The above table shows a total enroll ment of 519, a decrease of 10 aa com pared with lost year, 10 of which de crease Is attributable to the foreign en rollment, there being 52 foreign pupils this year as compared with 62 last year. This decrease was mostly In the lower grades. The foreign enrollment in the high school last year was 32, while for this year there was a foreign enrollment of 3a The tuition in all the (trades for the year just closing was $09. The average percent of dally attend ance tor '93 was 97.3, while this year gives but 94.5. The marked difference is only apparent, however, as previous to this year we have based our percentage on the plan used in most of the graded schools In the state, that is, counting all pupils after an absence of 5 days or more. as wiuiurawn ail their return, even though known to be temporarily nbwut On such a basis it is impossible to know what relation the per ceut. of daily at tendance sustains to the real attendance, Absence is absence, whatever causes it or however much or little there may be of it, and.it is to be regretted the plan used throughout the graded schools of the state does not call all absence absence, Our report this year, while not based on the prevailing plan, shows the true con ditlon of attendance in the various grades, Despite the fact that vaccination and the several cases of scarlet fever in the vil lage caused much irregular attendance during the winter term, the attendance in several of the schools throughout the year was better than last year. The 89 cases of tardiness is a decrease of 7 cases, as compared with last yeur's report. Of the total tardiness 55 cases occurred during tho full term and were mostly caused by the pupils enrolled for the first time in our schools. Pupil learn to be punctual, and It frequently takes time. In the total enrollment there wero 218 boys and 271 girls. In the grammar grades there was an enrollment of So boys and 93 girls. In the primary grades there were 111 boys and 112 girls. There were 16 more pupils enrolled In the pri mary grades than last year. The average age of the graduates this year was 18 years, the average for last year being 18.2 years. The average ase of the class just promoted to the high school Is 16 years, in consequence of which they are better able to do good high school work. The work of the schools throughout all the grades was fully up to the efficiency of any past year, as shown by the dally work, the examination papers and the final promotions. Good discipline and faithfuless In daily work characterized the teachers in all the grades during the year, and this, coupled with the faithful work and good behavior of the pupils, made the year a pleasant and profitable one to teachers and pupils alike. The high school library and laboratory were both much improved during the year by purchases from the "Junior Ex." fund, still leaving $34 for future par chases as needed. It seems fitting In this connection to recognize the generons gift, last winter, of a fine geological cabinet to the high school, by B. B. Herrlck. The specimens are numerous, and many of them rare, the careful collection dur ing many yean by the generous donor. It Is to be hoped that this Is but the be ginning of many like bequests to our high school, our 800 alumni warranting such pleasing hope. Again thanking the board of education tor their continued confidence in the management of the schools, and bespeak ing for the above report a careful read ing, It Is respectfully submitted. R. H, Kinnibon, Bup't. are we Thronged? What i CHURCH NOTES. CONUREUATIONAL. The usual preaching service, with com muulon, at the Congregational church next Sunday morning.
