Vision of School Children.
An examination of forty children
from two public schools In New York
city shows some striking results. Tin
forty puptls examined were the worst
that could be found in the two schools,
eighteen of them being so stupid that
they were In ungraded classes, eleven
were so stupid that they required
three terms to do the work of one
term, and eleven were delinquent. All
qf the forty 'children had defective
vision. They were fltted with proper
glasr'--* and after six months It was
found ihat thirty-two of them had
made astonishing progress. These
thirty-two wore under as many differ
ant teachers.’ A r?port of this work
has been made to the board of educa
tion, recommending that the entlre
cure of the school children, mental,
moral and physical, be vested In on<
department with a single head and
that that should be the board of edu
cation; ^tfrat a sufficient number oi
loctors be trained to deal with all do
fects of school children who arc at
present in the cr'c-;ory of ifngrnded,
backward or disciplinary cases; *thnt
any child whose work Is unsatisfactory
for one term should be examined and
all defects of structure and habit cor
rected as fur as possible.—Journal of

The new school year opened
•Inly 14. 'The annual rcjiorts of
school directors arc all received
and on file in the office of the
county superintendent.. Accord
ing to these reports nearly every
dis.rict in the county has voted
nine months of school for the
coming year. There will lie no
six months term, only a few seven
and the rest eight or nine. Nearly
every teacher in the county has
already contracted for a school
for the coining year at a salary no
less than $45. The school boards
have responded to the appeal for
higher wages and longer terms.
It now rests with the teachers to
do their part by attending insti
tute, doing faithful work and get
ting the help and inspiration that
wil| make them more worthy of
higher wages, and will lead to ad
vancement in all lines.
Special features in the line of
lectures or other forms of evening
entertainment will make this ses
sion a particularly interesting one.
