roof. Inasmuch as the exposure of this pipe in the room provides for the complete diffusion, in the apartment, of the heat produced in the stove, it is preferable to the flue in the wall; but the latter is less liable to be injured by accident, and does not disfigure the room.

The pure-air valve in the floor should, if possible, open either under the stove or close to it, so as to warm the fresh air as it enters the room, thus promoting warmth and ventilation at the same moment. The thermometer should be shut up in an iron box, secured by a padlock, to prevent the apparatus from being injured by the curiosity of the children. The door of the stove and of the ash-pit also should be both secured by padlocks.

A vase containing water should be placed on the top of the stove to diffuse moisture proportioned to the warmth of the air in the room. To prevent the removal of the water by the children, this vase should be covered by a lid perforated with a sufficient number of small holes.

A thermometer should be kept in every schoolroom-being hung on the coolest side, but in a situation free from draught, and where it could be easily consulted by the schoolmaster. Without a thermometer the heat of the school will be liable to be regulated by the uncertain and varying standard of the feelings of the schoolmaster. The sensations of a master of invalid and sedentary habits would differ widely from those of a robust and vigorous young man, accustomed to take considerable exercise daily in the open air. But the temperature of the schoulroom ought to be uniform; hence the uecessity of having some more certain means of regulating it than the sense of heat or cold experienced by the master,

[School-Building Form No. 8.] If the promoters of the subscription towards the erection of the school

wish the architect of the Committee of Council on Education to prepare (gratuitously) a plan of the school-buildings, the information sought in this paper must be communicated to their Lordships' Secretary

Privy Council Office, Downing-street. A PLAN of the site must be sent, either drawn according to scale, or showing the dimensions of the ground along each boundary; the aspect which the front of the school-buildings is intended to have ; together with the adjacent roads, and other approaches.

On this plan, also, the inclination of the ground must be indicated, by marking which is the highest and which the lowest level, in order that a sketch of the drainage may be drawn. If (which is very undesirable) the ground is on a steep slope, a section of the site must be sent, to enable the architect to adapt his plans to this slope.

The plans and elevations drawn by their Lordships' architect must be copied, and returned to the Privy Council Office to be deposited there.

The following questions must also be answered. 1. State what is the number of children for which accommodation is to

be provided under any of the following heads:

The number of boys in one room.
The number of girls in one room.
The number of infants in one room.

Or, The number of boys and girls in the same room. 2. If the arrangement of the rooms shown in any one of the plans pub

lished in their Lordships' Minutes is preferred, here state the

number of that plan. 3. Ştate whether one or more class-rooms are needed, and the number

of children to be provided for in each class-room. 4. State whether one or more lobbies or closets for cloaks and caps are

to be provided. 5. In some schools for factory children a small room, supplied with

water, is provided, in order that the scholars, who work half the day in the mill, may wash before entering the school. State

whether such a room is to be built. 6. State whether one or more houses are to be erected for the master

and mistress, and, respecting each house, how many rooms it is to contain below stairs, and how many above stairs ; thus-sittingroom, kitchen, scullery, number of bed-rooms; and the size of the rooms, where that is not left to the discretion of their Lordships'

architect. 7. State whether the materials are to be stone, or brick, or brick with

stone dressings. 8. State whether the roof is to be covered with tiles or, slate. Signed this day of

184 Correspondent on behalf of the promoters of the school. Residence. Post town.
