The school is still occupying two sites, the old site in Rochester and the new site in Rush, to which it is proposed to remove the entire school as soon as the necessary buildings are finished, probably during the current fiscal year.

City institution.

All but ferty-two of which are at Rush. * All of which are at Rochester.

The experiment with the new conditions into which the school is entering has been tried on a more extensive scale this year than last, about one-fifth of the boys having been placed at work upon the farm at Rush. The boys appear to like the change, and are manifesting an interest in the farm work. A few have taken advantage of the greater opportunity for escape, but this, in the opinion of the Managers, is more than balanced by the increased interest and enjoyment which the majority take in their work, and the benefit to their health and growth in the

outdoor life.

Beginning in October, 1904, farms A, B and C began to supply one-half of the milk required for the city institution. After the first of April all of the milk for the city institution was supplied. by these three farms.

A colony of primary boys was established at farm G where they entered upon their work with an eagerness that surprised their officers. Their work was not only productive of excellent crops, but resulted in remarkable physical growth on the part of the boys, winter clothing, which was a good fit when laid aside in April, utterly failing to meet the requirements when attempt was made to put it on again in the fall.

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 insti.

tution:

(Boys' kitchen.) Sunday:

Breakfast-Bread, coffee, syrup.
Dinner-Roast beef, bread, butter, tea, cookies, mustard,

peaches.

Supper-Bread, milk, ginger bread, prune sauce.
