tary Drawing," the Committee opened a Drawing Class from November last. It is now attended by twenty-six pupils, and is under the instruction of a Beni Israel Drawing Master, who possesses a second grade certificate from the Sir Jamsetjee Jeejebhoy's School of Art. The Committee hope that the students attending the Drawing Class will compete in the annual examination of the School of Art, and may secure for the Institution the grant sanctioned by Government, for the encouragement of the study of drawing in Government and private schools.
The annual examination of the School was commenced by the Deputy Educational Inspector, Rao Saheb G. B. Laghate, B.A., LL.B., on the 28th of January, 1887, and the following is a copy of his report:—

In the Third Standard, out of eleven girls eight passed, and out of twenty-three boys eight passed, reading in this standard being unsatisfactory. The lower standards were efficiently taught. The records of the School are kept with great care and neatness.
(2) I am very glad to be able to say of this School, that it is one of the most efficiently managed and useful Schools. The exertions of Mr. llaeem Samuel, the president of this Institution, are praiseworthy, and deserve mention in this report.
