This institution during the past year has continued as heretofore. The applications for admission continue to accumulate, there being few opportunities for receiving new cases. A redis. tribution of the inmates of the several institutions devoted to the care of the feeble-minded class of dependents would result in opening this school to many deserving children who are now necessarily denied admission. There are many adults in this school, men and women who have passed the age of improvement, and who remain because there is no other place for them to go. The removal of the men to Rome and the women to Newark will be beneficial in many ways. For lack of room in this school, feeble-minded boys and girls are growing up in ignorance without proper protection and to the ultimate detriment of society. The power of transfer, when the public interests deinand it, should be lodged in a central authority covering these public insti. tutions. This school for feeble-minded children is especially unfortunate because the compulsory presence of so many adults has practically changed the character of the institution. The work of the school will be benefited by the complete separa

tion of the sexes.

In compliance with the request of the Board of Managers of this institution, the Board recommends the employment of a teacher of sloyd. This will necessitate an addition of $1,000 to the yearly allowance for maintenance.

Additional facilities should be provided for bathing, and the substitution of the spray bath system for that now in use will promote the health and cleanliness of the children.

The stairways in the central building are no longer safe. In case of fire their condition would certainly result in the loss of life. An appropriation for their reconstruction is necessary.

The stone wall surrvunding the premises has been left unfinished on Grand avenue for a number of years. In order to protect not only the property but the children the premises should be surrounded by a safe fence, and the present fence should be extended.

The Board recommends the following appropriations, or so much thereof as may be necessary, to this institution:

For reconstruction of the stairways in the central building, $1,200; for extension of stone wall fence on Grand avenue, $3,000; and for the renewal of laundry machinery and repairs to laundry, $1,800; making the special appropriations approved of, $6,000; maintenance appropriation, $81,000; making the total appropriations, $87,000.
