APPENDIX G.

REPORT UPON THE COMPLIANCE OF TOWNS AND CITIES WITH CHAPTER 332 OF THE ACTS OF 1885, COMMONLY

KNOWN AS THE TEMPERANCE LAW.

By the Secretary of the State Board of Education.

THE TEMPERANCE LAW.

THE

COMPLIANCE OF Towns AND CITIES WITH CHAPTER 332,

ACTS OF 1885, RELATING TO THE TEACHING IN
PUBLIC SCHOOLS OF PHYSIOLOGY, HYGIENE AND THE

The petition was accompanied by a bill, printed as "Senate, No. 41.” It has been supported by a large number of petitions in aid, with signatures numbering upwards of forty thousand, and representing all sections of the Commonwealth. The original bill, Senate,
