KINDERGARTENS.

NUMBER OF INSTITUTIONS.

care.

The total number of kindergartens reported to the Office for the present year is 417, with 915 instructors and 21,640 pupils. This shows very little change from the report of 1884–85, due probably to the in perfect returus received.

As far as reported the manner of support of each kindergarten has been tabulated this year, giving 1:28 supported by tuition, 118 by public funds, and 121 by charity.

CHARITY KINDERGARTENS, A great part of the work is still carried on by charity, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, and Philadelphia taking the lead in establishing and maintaining free kindergartens.

in San Francisco, under the care of four associations, 22 kindergartens are supported, one society alope, the Golden Gate Association, having 933 children under its

Chicago has a free kindergarten association with 13 kindergiertens for the present Fear and a free training class for teacliers with 45 pupils, whose graduates teach in the free kindergartens.

In Boston, Mrs. Quincy A. Shaw, by whose generosity the cause in that city received its greatest impulse, supports 18 kindergartens.

Under the Subprimary School Society in Philadelphia there are 29 kindergartens supported by charity and public foods combined.

Cincinnati has 6 charity kindergartens, Indianapolis 4, and Portland, Oregon, 4, each under the care of an association having for its object the establishinent of free kindergartens and the training of teachers for this work.

Kindergarten departrents bave been established in several institutions for the blind and the deaf and dub, in orphan asylums and schools for the feeble inimepit. where their effects are most beneficial, bringing joy and comfort to many a little beart shut out from much of this world's happiness.

The most eminent educators of the day recognize and indorso its principles and methods, and only the expense involved prevents its becoming at once the lowest grade of the public schools of our leading cities.

Milwaukee has 10 public kindergartens; Ionia, Mich., 3; and Muskegon, in the same State, 4, while Des Moines, Iowa, bas supported 2 for the last two years.

In Philadelphia part of the kindergartens under the Subprimary School Societs are in public-school buildings and supported by public funds, and Superintendent MacAlister says: “Philadelphia can no longer afford to be withont the kindergarten.” Steps are being taken to make it a part of the public school system.

The superintendent of schools, Springfield, Mass., in a report on introducing kindergartens into public schools, says: “Those who have studied the system and observed its results generally concede the following:

"1. The children trained by it are more submissive to school discipline;

“2. They are more intelligent, more exact observers, and grasp ideas more readily than others;
