A Plan for a Graded School.
Along witli t)ie other improve-
meiifs Avlucli out’ town is making
we would suggest that she estab
lish a system of graded schools.
This can be done very easily and
che<iply. We have in the town
between the ages of six and tweuty-
oue about 250 (^liildi'en. AVe get
from tljjki'egnlar school fund about
year. If we h;id a
ISThool we would also get a
i’.mount from the I’oabydy
For S 750 a year %ve '-iin get
good teachers and pay the
incidental expenses. Deducting
the $ 250 received from the' county
it lea\ es ? 500 to be raised by the
town. A extra le\'y of 15 cents on
the $100 will raise this amount.
The system of books iio«' used in
the graded schools of the state
could be adopted, the children
could be di\'idcd off in grades and
tlius 'S^^^uld ha’i'e a teu^months

parents of tiye town a grepdi deal
of expense a/d the principal of tlie
school nee(yiess worry in collecting
accounts. /Pupils living outside of
the towy could get the benefit of
the gr;)/led scliool by paying a cer
tain mice stipulated by the town
eonfi/issioners. This money would
h-<ixkt to be paid at the end of e\'ery
n^nth and would go to the general
srliool fund of the .town, 'W'hat
