All applications for state students should come through County Superindendent of schools, and should not be made later than thirty days previous to the opening of the term. 
State students, having precedence over others, should secure their places promptly, in order that others may not be kept waiting. State students are expected to pay ten dollars a month for board, etc., but, if able-bodied, they can meet their personal expenses by paying five or six dollars per month, according to age, and working out the balance.
