Three sehoolhouses have been built during the year; one in Muskego, one in New Ber- lin and one in Brookfleld, all of which are excellent buildings, and, I think, wel' fur- nished, and a credit to the districts in which they are built. Quite a number of school- houses have been repaired during the past season; but stilll there is a chance for some improvement in certain districts. Gentlemen, do not understand meas speak- ing disparagingly of the schools of the county, for a large majority of the schoolhouses in the county are in excellent condition and well furnished, not only with school appara- tus, but with noble, energetic and successful teachers.

TOWN CLERKS' REPORTS. The mnjovity cf tbe town clerks' reports were correct; but in some instances very in- correct.

Camp in the moral and spiritual welfare of the prisoners in my custody. Mr. Camp has visited the jail dur- ing the last two years every Sabbath after- noon, with few exceptions. That these visits have left a little light glimmering through the bars I know from occasional words drop ped by the prisoners and gathered from my official supervision of their correspondence with their friends, The Rev. Father Thill has also visited us, and I acknowledge with pleasure the valua- ble aid he has given in reforming habitual drunkards. Respectfully submitted. Em.

REPORT OF THE SUIT OE SCHOOLS. To the Honorable County Board of Supervis- ors of Waukesha County GENTLEMEN herewith have the honor to transmit the annual report of the County Superintendent of Schools, as required by sec. 92, school code. JOHN HOWITT, County Sup't. of Schools. Waukesha, Nov. 15, 1S76. GENTLEMEN: Your attention is first called to the GENERAL STATISTICS. There arc at present within this county 117 schools, requiring 132 persons to teach them. The census of Aug. 31, 1876, shows 5J01 mule children and 5135 female children in the eovinty between the ages of four and twenty years: together making against in 1375, a decrease of 576, which was occasioned-by the city of Ocono- inow.ic, which made its annual report to the State Superintendent, but iu 1875 made it to tbe County Of this num- ber 6590 are reported as having attended school during the year: an increase of 182 over last year, (Ooonomnwoc city being ex- leaving 2946 children of school age who have not attended school during the year, which is 110 less than last-year. The number over twenty years of age who have attended school is 41. an increase of 7 over last year; under four years of age 3, ft dc- crense of 7'. The total uumber of days school has been taught by a qualified teacher is an in- crease of SI days more than last year, giving an average of 464 days to each school in the county. "The total uumbciLof days'attend- ance of different pupils Total number cf days' attendance of pupils over four and under twenty years of age is 09S. nn increase of over last year, giving an average of 77 days to eash pupil attending school. The average wnges of male teachers was per month, which is a from last year.. This ia-in cecded in securing a certificate. Of the 200 applicants last spring, 2 received first graue certificates; 6 second grade, and OS "third grade (and a few limited which are not in force at At the fall examinations, 2 received first grade, 8 second grade, 87 third grade and 12 limited (uf the limited six were old teachers who found it impossible to attend the public' examinations being away from home or from other justifiable reasons.) Considering the number receiving certifi- cates who do not intend to teach, the number from other counties, for there are quite a number, receiving certificated horc but not- teaching in the county those who may be qualified in regard to education, but .their age nnd experience would disqualify them those who teach in the summer- but not in the winter those who teach in the winter j but not in the summer those who leave the educational work for more lucrative emplov- ment, and which, perhaps, is more congenial to their nature by taking these things into consideration, with others which I need not mention, leaves the teaching force quite ballot be forinol. Motion carried. On the first ballot Wm Rhodes received all the votes cast and was declared elected, The communication from W. P. Calkins re- lative to care of couuty poor and manage- ment of County Farm was received aud refer- red to special committee, consisting of Messrs. Sperry, Weiner and Goss. KEl'OllT OF OF I'OOIl.
