During the past year the new steam cooking outfit, which was installed just before the commencement of the fiscal year, has given excellent satisfaction. By its use it has been possible to serve food on warm dishes, and the food itself has been much more palatable while the warming ovens serve in a measure as steam radiators, adding to the comfort of the dining rooms in cold

weather.

It is thought proper to make some explanation with reference to the reduced per capita cost for maintenance as it appears in this report for the New York State School for the Blind at Batavia.

It has been the rule for this institution to ascertain the average attendance at the school by dividing the total attendance during the school period by the actual number of days of the school session, this average attendance becoming the divisor, with the total expenditures as the dividend for computing the per capita for the

Fear.

Heretofore the school period has varied but slightly, consequently the per capita was obtained in each case upon about the same basis. During the year for which this report is made the assembling of the school was delayed on account of the unfinished

condition of the heating plant which was being overhauled. The number of days during which the pupils were assembled and the school in operation was 170, while the whole term, namely, from September 21, to June 14, would have made a total of 267 days.

On account of the delay in assembling the school the expenditures were considerably less than in former years, and due to the method of finding the average attendance that figure remained about the average. Hence when the per capita was accordingly reached it was considerably lower than former years, and there fore gives a fictitious impression.

This institution is open the whole year for the accommodation of the superintendent and the organization connected with the institution.

Other institutions reporting to this Department compute their per capita on a basis of 365 days, and it is the desire of this Department that the Batavia school shall in the future do the same in this particular, which will afford more equitable conditions and a fairer comparison than when the basis of calculation

is as now.

The following shows the annual per capita cost as it would appear if calculated on the three different bases :

The school term of 170 days, the actual length of the school session, $271.76; 267 days, the usual average length of the school session, $441.22; 365 days, the basis upon which all other institutions reporting to this Department make their calculation, $583.51.

The following bills of fare for the closing week of the fiscal year, submitted by the Superintendent at the request of this Department, give a fair idea of the range of diet at this institution :
