Using his Bindery to indulge in an uncalled for fling

The Collegiate year is divided into three terms of 14
weeks each. The Anniversary exercises will bo held at
the close'ot the Springlerm.
No deduction will be made for absence, except in ease
of protracted illness of over two weeks.
Instrumental Music will not, as heretofore, be taught in
the Institution, but by special arrangement—a class will
be taught in a hall, adjoining the grounds of the Institute,
by the Teacher of Vocal Music.
This arrangement has been adopted for the past term,
and experience has proved it to be eminently superior to
the plan pursued in former years. Special pains will be
taken to secure the greatest progress of those wishing to
take lessons in this branch. Terms will bees heretofore :
Tuition on Plano Forte, per terns $lO 00
Use of instrument for practice 3 00
Pupils boarding in the Hall will tarnish their own tow
els, &c., and the table silver a. their option. It is desira
ble that they also furnish their own bed and bedding
when it is convenient. but when otherwise, these will be
furnished at a slight charge.
It Is strongly recommended that students from abroad
should board in the Institution, as better opportunities
for advancement In study are thereby secured.
Normal Department-Special exercises are arranged
without extra charge for those preparing themselves as
Teachers of Common Schools. Prof. C. R. COBURN, the
able and well known Superintendent of Common Schools
'in the county, has kindly consented to organize the Tea
cher's class, and direct the course to be pursued.
Be will also be present to conduct its exercises as often
aspracticable, and will deliver frequent lectures on the
Theory and Practice of Teaching, as also on other subjects
connected with Normal training.
Thosepares , nit, therefore. intending to engage in teach
ing for the Minter, will'ilnd it greatly to their advantage
to be Present daring the Fall term. ' • : .
