It is interesting to note that the expenditures in the North Atlantic States have increased in thirty-two years 206 per cent; in the South Atlantic, 274 per cent; in the South Central, 245 per cent; in the North Central, 229 per cent; and in the Western, 762 per cent. The period named has been one of continued growth in the West, and the generous provision for public education has been a feature of the development of that section.

(54) Proportion of expenditures for sites, buildings, etc., for superintendents' and

teachers' salaries, and for incidental purposes, on account of the public schools.
