of the school will permit.

The jjresent buildings can now accommodate about one hundred and thirty persons as boarders. In addition, students desiring to do so arc permitted to board in the town with families approved by the Principal. The class-rooms are new and commodious, and the chemical and fjhysical apparatus sufficient for our present work.

A

small but well-equipped laboratory affords students an oppor-

tunity for qualitative analysis.

A

reading-room receives, in addition to daily and weekly papers,

about twenty of the leading scientific and literary periodicals. Due prominence is given to the educational journals of the country, and students are referred to, and required to make themselves familiar with, the professional literature of the day as

studies of the class previous to that grade.

Applicants for entrance to the Senior or Professional course

must be thoroughly prepared on the subject-matter of the studies of the public schools in primary and grammar grades. If necessary, examinations will

be held to determine their proficiency.

The regular examinations at the school for admission of students commence on the 5th of September, 1894, and continue two days. Examinations for entrance

will also

be held on the two school

days immediately preceding the beginning of the second term,

February

Candidates who

fail

of admission to the Junior Class are re-

ceived for a preparatory course of instruction in the E. Class.

The course of study being arranged by terms, persons will be admitted to classes at the beginning of either term, in September or in February. Teachers of public schools, who are allowed to attend on the basis of their licenses without tuition fees, may,

with

profit,

attend after the close of their
