Reports of the Inspectors.

Andersonburg-- W. H. Hall, Principal

There is nothing special to note concerning the working of the school, during the year.  The progress made in every department was quite satisfactory.  We therefore deem it unnecessary to lengthen this report by repeating what has been said in former reports, and will only say that the regular programme for the working of the schools has this year, as well as in the past, been strictly adhered to.
