Director McCranev present at No. 8, Lcßoy,
sharply criticised a number who came late,
and would compel a number of youth idling
t line in streets, had he power, to attend school.
The sentimentalities opposed to compulsory
education, are constantly attributing non-at
tendance to defective teaching.
No. 3 and No. 8, Lcßoy Village, are both
excellent schools, yet half a score of street
Arabs were playing ball within a stones
throw of the schools, and the director said
nothing could induce them to attend. One
of them was offered several shillings per
week to stop swearing and smoking, and to
attend school, hut he was incorrigible. With
such, "what will the harvest be?" Schools

No. 1, Lellov, showed admirable results in

found in our county who is not doing good
work in this subject.

Mr. 11. B. PARSONS has recently been.mak
ing a canvas with a view to obtaining a cor

The result shows that there are 312 males and
324 h males, making the total adult population
of the borough 636. As the adult population
of any town is estimated to be about two
lift lis of the entire population, it foilows that
the population of Canton at the present time
is something.like sixteen hundred.

There is hut one time in the year when di
rectors can adopt a new series of text books
for the schools under their charge, or change
i old ones, and that is between the time of
electing teachers and the opening of the
j schools. Section 215, Act of M. y 1, 1S")4, says:
" That immediately after the annual election
I of teachers in each school district of the state,
and be fere the opening of the schools tor the
ensuing term, there shall he a meeting of the
I dimeters or controllers and teachers of each
j district; at which meeting the directors or
[ controllers shall decide upon a series of school
hooks, in the different branches to he taught
during the ensuing school year; which books,
and no other, shall be used in the schools of
the district during said period.''
Such is the law, with this exception, that
books cannot now be changed more frequent
l\ than once in three years. •
