Tho soavenger ordinance was laid on tho tablo. An offort to lay tho Rcoordor ordin ance on tht tablo failed and the ordin ance wont over. The school committo handed in tho following roport which was adoutod: To Tho lion Mayor anil City Council of the OityorWaco. Your committeo on public frco sohools to whom was referred ocrtain matters mentioned orally in opon council at a regular meeting of tho council on Thursday ovenmg Jan. 21st would respoctfully report that a meet ing of tho committeo was held on Friday aftornoon Jan. 22nd, at the contral school buildiDg at 3:30. That besides tho oommittee thero were present Aldermen Payno and Willig also tho superintendent, tho princi pals of all the sohools and four other citizens. As tuoro were no writton charges made against any one, tho committee together with all present hold a frco discussion of such matters as were montioncd in the oouneil and suoh othe.r matters as any ono present desired to montion, and this roport will briefly refer to eaoh thing dis ousacd. 1-t. As to children being kept outsido of tho house on arrival in cold and severo weather. Tho rule is that the teaohcrs shall bo at tho school room twenty minutes, and the prin cipals thirty minutes, bofore the time to opon and tho practioo has been to address a noto to tho parents rcquost iug them to lot tho childron start from home at suoh timo as will allow amplo timo to re a oh tho sohool house boforo tho sohool opens and yet not so early as to roaob sohool boforo the toaoher or principal arrives; this gives a margin of thirty minutes to cover differences of time pieces and distances tho object being that the children shall not collect before tho teacher ar rives, so that thero shall bo as short an intorval as practicable for tho child to be out of sight of both toucher and parent. Cn this rule eaoh prinoipal stated that every child was expected to come into tho houso immediately on arrival and that if any child at any time had boon bept out of doors against its will in inclement weather such iant was unknown to them. 2nd. As to tho statement that chil dren wero required to eat their dinner or lunch out of doors in bad weather, tho rule has been at the central school torequiro the pupils to eat within the building in separate rooms, eaoh room being presided over by a toachor, or in tho hall, and whenever this rulo has beon varied it has boon dono in pleasant weather and upon tho request of tho pupils thomselves. As to the other schools each prinoipal stated that tho children were allowed to eat in the houso and if anyone ate outsido in bad weather it was not with the con- Bont or knowledgo of the principal and they heard of no suoh case. 3rd. As to excuses botng referred from teachers to principals, this mat ter was not fully disousscd owing to the lateness of the hour but tho com mitteo understands the rulo to bo that any written exouso signed by the par- ont is accepted without requiring a statement of tho reasons for absence, but that owing to tho large percentage of absentees and consequent falling off in tho average oi general attendance tho rulo has been adopted by somo of tho principals to inquiro of tho pupils after dismission as to tho cause of absence and detention, so as to got at tho facts as far as praotioable in ardor to remedy tho detect not in any sonso to punish the ohild or to reflect on the parents. It is impossible to attend to this during sohool hours and when many exouses are sent it somotimes takes fifteen or twonty minutes after dismissal, and we beliovo that tho do tention has novor execodod this. 4th. Tho matter of one session per day instead of two sessions was not discussed at this meeting, and the committee aro not unanimous on the prosont plan, but it was adopted on the writton consent of moro than eighty per cent, of the patrons of tho sohool and thoro are many good rea sons in support of it. Tho number ot hours occupied in teaohing is tho same under either plan, and tho amount of work for toachor and pupil the same. It investigation and dis oussion show that two sessions aro better the change can be made. 1 1 mm HOUSE and SIGN PAINTING.

Thero aro many difficulties arising in tho oonduot ;of tho public sohools which aro ohargeable, mainly, to tho system and not to any individual. Wo do not beliovo the superintendent and principals and teachers aro per fect or above criticism, but take pleasure in saying that wo have found in all parties concerned an earnest desire and effort to discharge con scientiously tho difficult and delicate duties devolving upon thorn and be liovo that the general oonduot and management of the sohools will bear favorable comparison with any public schools known to us. There will neo ossarily exist a deficiency in the methods and plans of individuals where so large a number are employed but we holicvo that a percentage of this olass has boon reduced almost to a minimum but ohccrfully invite full investigation and fair and reasonablo criticism but do not expect over to reach a standard that will be perfect ly satisfactory to all.
