It Is a pleasantly-instructlv* document, tnd shows conclusively what a good thing an exchange of visits between the School Directors of the two cities has been The Wilmington Educational Board are enthusiastic in favor of steam beating, and notice approvingly our Introduction of steam into the Howell street building. The warming of school rooms Is another of those vexed questions which have long re mained. If the Howell street apparatus fulfils its promise, every school building in our city ought to be furnished in the •ame way. We have demonitrated beyond peradventure that both rurnacee and atoves are a costly failure for echool-room uses. If steaa-keatiDg Is the thing, tbs sooner lh Is bad tbs better. The report very pleas* sntly n ottses the distinct articulation and appropriate inflections with which the chil dren In our schools rendered their reading leseocs. Good readtng, although esaentlal la an education, la a scarce commodity In We appreciate thle com pit* meat, and all the more because w« feel that It Is deserved, ii a corps, our teachers are admirable readers, and like teaeher Ilka child naturally follows. There are other features of our schools upon which Presi dent Eckel makes wise comment, but want of space forbids further notice of a paper, the judlolous, kindly tone of which can hardly fail to benefit both Wilmington and Cheater.
