1. Every Receipt should be signed by the Manager, and by the Teacher entitled to receive the amount of Salary therein specified.

3. If a Teacher die to whom any Salary is due by the Commissioners, the amount will be paid to the representative or next-of-kin. The relationship of the party paid must, however, be stated in the Receipt; and if such party cannot write, his or her mark will be received as signature, if witnessed by

a third person.

4. If a Teacher leave a National School, and authorize the Manager, or some other person, to receive the Salary due from this Board, such authority must be given in writing, or the amount will not be paid. A Manager can always protect himself by attending to Rules Nos. 2 and 7.

5. As the Commissioners of Audit do not consider a Certificate of payment coming from the person who makes such payment a proper Document, no. Manager's Certificate can in future be taken as a Voucher.

6. If Receipts which are sent from this Office for Signature, be not returned within a Month, the amount of Salary to which they refer will be cancelled, and remain over until the next quarterly payment becomes due. This rule will in future be strictly adhered to, in consequence of the inconvenience arising from such delays.

7. The Commissioners do not pay Salary for a broken period of a month, nor will they in future pay any Teacher a Month's Salary unless he shall have been in charge of the School for at least two-thirds of the month. Managers should, therefore, take care not to allow Teachers to leave their Schools before the last week of the month.
