  3. Through 1880–81 these figures are for men. The salaries of women were as follows: 1873–74, $100; 1874–75, $100; 1875–76, $90; 1876–77, $50; 1877–78, $74; 1878–79, $68; 1879–80, $70; 1880–81, $68. The figures given beginning with 1882–83 are the average of all salaries.
  4. 4.0 4.1 4.2 4.3 4.4 4.5 From report for 1889–90; these figures do not always agree with those in other reports. They are probably in most cases only approximate.
