schools of the State, subject to the order of said boards; but
said boards shall have the right at any time to change any
series of text-books already in use or hereafter adopted; pro-
vided, that text-books shall be furnished under the provisions
of this article to the several grades in the public schools succes-
sively, beginning with the first grade; and provided, that the

year for said text-books more than the several amounts of
money received by said boards respectively, under the pro-
visions of this article; and provided, that indigent pupils of all
grades shall receive text-books free of cost, as provided under
provisions of existing laws; and provided, the said respective
boards shall adopt means for the purchase of text-books by
competitive bidding, and at the lowest possible price; and pro-
vided, that parents or pupils may purchase their own text-
books when they may think proper; and provided, further,
that the several Boards of County School Commissioners
shall furnish annually to the State Board of Education the
title, the name of the publisher and the net price paid for each
text-book so purchased, which information shall be set forth in

sary text-books, the boards may expend such surplus amounts

mentary reading books for pupils.
