Mr. Stockton said In part: In again welcoming you to an annual institute of the teachers of the j county, I am gratified to be able to report to you as the body most Interested In school work, that we are mak- ( Ing progress. There are betterments | in the work, betterments that are manifested in every department from Its beginning class to and through Its high school. And I believe that not only do I observe Its improvement but that It Is observed by you, by the people, by all who are Interested iu the cause of education. In that which appeals to the eye and which makes for .... the comfort of teachers and students, i best high I may say that our schools are better tills pom furnished and better equipped than even o, ever before. Two old districts that quaint.••! bad lapsed have been re-organized.'"^'"''' More money was expended for school n"i.i se,, purposes during the pa.st year than 'in i""t' ever before.

The school ha> steadily grown In its teaching force, enrollment, and In the scope of its work until now we have thirteen leach-is, 240 students, and a curriculum that I feel sure that will surprise even many of you who are permanent residents of this county, in its breadth, solidity, and practicability.

With this in view the money side of the school question is settled, it is for us as teachers to take stock of what we an> doiir.', and what we are going to do to make the schools cover the widest sphere of usefulness. A year of supervision of the individual schools, a year of Inspection ot the work as I have seen it in the class room, and by papers submitted to the governing school board of the county, cause me to conclude that we are making progress. We may not note, very phenomenal growth or Improve ment in a single direction or along a single line, but I think there Is no one who was familiar with the work of a year ago, and who has followed the school thought and the school effort for the year past, who would not agree with me that we are growing, and that is really the sum of human achievement. A school system, like an Individual can not stand still. ; lt must either retrograde or advance, and I know that here, in Kern county, we are advancing. It pleases me to reach this conclusion as I feel certain it will please you to have this assurance. An Illustration.
