Constantinople.—(Haskeui Girls' School, 341 pupils; subvention, £200.)—This School is mainly supported by the Anglo-Jewish Association. Only 30 of the pupils pay fees. M. F. Bloch, the Inspector of the Alliance Schools in Constantinople, spoke in high terms of the earnestness with which the Head-Mistress, Mdlle. Bornstein, devoted herself to her duties, and most elficiently helped the five Assistant-Teachers with her direction and valuable advice. The School is divided into 4 classes, and the Infants' Department into 3 classes. The subjects taught are Grammar, General History, Geography, Physical Science, Arithmetic, Object Lessons, Bible History, and Caligraphy. The workroom is attended by 33 learners.

In the month of December the School Committee, aided by the teaching staff, arranged a Chanucah entertainment, at which some of the pupils gave a recital on the significance of the festival in the Roumanian, German, and Hebrew languages. By the proceeds of this entertainment destitute pupils were supplied with complete outfits of clothing and with shoes for the winter.
