Report.

"The models presented by the students, as well as those made at the examination, showed most careful and skillful teaching, while there were many indications that the students had entered into the spirit of their teacher.

"I was much pleased with the many beautiful specimens of arts and crafts shown, especially those of Bookbinding, Basket-work, Wood-carving and Brush-work.

Ex-Students of the House of Education should induce their pupils to take in The Children's Quarterly (to be got at the Office, 28, Victoria Street, W., sixpence a quarter, or sevenpence by post). The "Calendar for the Quarter,"with its paragraphs on Flowers, Insects, the Starry Heavens, Gardening Notes, should be of immense use to young naturalists.

The Library Committee have decided to call in all the books for revision of the catalogue. The Library therefore will be closed during the months of October and November. All members are requested to return Library books before October 1st.

Mrs. Boole requests us to state, in answer to inquiries, that the type-forms mentioned in her address (Parents' Review for July) can be procured from Mr. Newmann, Newman Street, Oxford Street, London. Customers can either select from Mr. Newmann's catalogue, or ask him to send "Mrs. Boole's selection" for nursery, or for mothers' study, according to the age of the child.
