The treasurer’s report up to the 30th of September, 1905, was read, received, and the warrants paid by him in Sep tember, 1005, ordered cancelled and his account given credit accordingly. The annual financial statement from Oct Ist, ’34, to Scot. 30, ’OS, was intro duced by the secretary; same was in vestigated by the Board and ordered received and approved in open Board and spread upon the minutes. THE OPENING OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. The public schools of the city were formally opened on last Monday. It had been predicted that possibly on account of the yellow feyer epidemic in the city of New Orleans and coast towns, along with the general languid ness of the times, as well as the fact that there was to be a complete change in the text books, there would be a small opening. Such was not the ease; for the opening this year was ll>2, as contrasted with 115 of last year—only a few less than double that of last year, and nearly as many as the entire enroll ment of last year. Many new faces greeted the teachers, as the hour of opening approached, but what was most encouraging of all was the number of old ones that came back. There were quite a number of visitors also on hand at the opening ceremonies, who remained through the gradation of the pupils and predicted a successful session. Among them were Miss Irma Rhodes, Mrs. M Greenburgh, who brought four children from Ansiey to matriculate in to school; Mrs. Fannie Beyer, Mrs. J, V. Toulme; Mr. and Mrs. George R. Rea, Miss Mae Edwards, Miss Vene Word, Miss Louise Delcuze, Mrs. Ber nard Shields, Mrs, J. M. Wrenck, Mrs. O. Lagniel and Mr. C. C. Hart and Rev. Galloway. Quite a number of young gentlemen from the bay that intend to matriculate into college as soon as the quarantine is opened have entered school to coach up on some study, and quite a number of those who graduated with us last year have entered the post graduate class, and among them Miss McGinn, who received the highest hon ors, and Miss Hart, and it is probable that others of the class will enter for higher work since the curriculum has been raised. Quite a number of changes have been made in the management of the school j by the trustees that will help the session | to be the best, Out the principal change is from the room to the hall system. Heretofore each teacher had her room full of pupils, and recitations and su pervision went on at the same time, the one to the detriment of the other; but under the new system all of the children above the third grade will be seated in to the hall, where a teacher will super vise their studies and direct them intel ligently, and then at the end of the study period the various classes will re pair to the class rooms, where they will recite, after which they will go again to the study hall to prepare the next reci tation. Another favorable change has been made in a continuous session, school hereafter assembling at a quarter of nine, a. m., and dismissing at a quar ter of three p. m., with a twenty min ute recess at twelve thirty. The trustees also at a late meeting in troduced a list of rules that will be read to the children from time to time, or else given to them in printed form for their guidance. The high school has a superior pri mary department this year under the able supervision of Miss Benton, who is an expert along her line, and many are taking advantage of this to haye their little fellows instructed correctly at the very beginning. Last year the school enrolled 2:>2 altogether, and it is safe to predict that this year, under better organization and with an additional teacher, the roll will go far beyond the three hundrded mark. „ • r ■,'*' v’ Lodi** .ctK; v i :n - f.
