The Drown Preparatory School lias
rent students to forty-six different col
leges, universities nnd technical schools,
Including Oxford (England), Harvard,
Yale, Princeton, University of Pcnnsyl

the success of thoao students has been
so general that It cannot bo attributed
to the accident of groat natural ability.
One ntumnus writes of the school!
"1 have been u Rtudcnt In other pri

arid two years In college, nnd In none
of these have I received such benefits
as I received from tno instruction

The school Is located In Odd Fellows'

leaves little to bo desired, being within
three squares of the Reading Terminal
and only two.squurcs frpm.Droad street

Although the school has special ad

not wish to do so, will find the courses

Good Work Where the Indiv

'Among the many educational Institu
tions for. which Philadelphia Is noted
there Is none whose reputation for good
work stands higher than that of the
Brown College-Preparatory School.
Founded about twenty-five years ago,
very early in its history it established
the policy of making the individual in
stead of the class the unit. Although
the successful carrying out of' this plan
requires tnct and a vast store of
patience on the part of the teachers,
yet there has been no thought of chang
ing the policy, for the success attend

managers feel more than Justified in

JONTESTANTS in The Trib
une's Educational Contest,
and others who may or may
not be Interested in this popu
lar plan of distributing schol
arships among the deserving young
people of Scranton and Northeastern
Pennsylvania, should read the follow
ing brief description of the Brown College-Preparatory
School, one of Phila
delphia's many educational institu
tions. The charge for tuition alone In
this school Is $00 per year, and The
Tribune was pleased to include a
scholarship covering three years among
the special rewards which it is offer
ing in this great contest.
The Tribune's contest is but little
more than half over, and there is even
yet plenty of time in the next eleven
weeks for any active young person, boy
or girl to secure one of the thirty
three scholarships which are offered to
those who obtain the largest number
of points, as descilbcd in the-advertisement
appearing on the fourth page
of this morning's Tribune. Many of

Small and Select.
The school is not large, for there has
never been any effort made to Increase
the number of the students at the sacri
fice of thoroughness, tempting as such
a plan might bo from a financial point;
hut the 'claim that more students enter
college from the Brown Preparatory,
than from any other school of) lko
numbers, has never been controverted.

The chief claims for recognition by
the school ro these: It tries to de
velop it boy thoroughly and to make
him helf-rollunt; It recognizes the Indi
viduality of a pupil and Jits him for
just buch work as he Is expected to do,
and It does thl3 with tho least possible
expenditure of time by the pupil. Any
young mun needing such help Is not
as taught in the Brown Preparatory
School eminently useful in their intel
lectual and moral development.
Courses of Instruction.
A. Classical. This course prepares
for the Arts department of such col
leges as Harvard, Unlversljy of Penn
sylvania, Oxford and Princeton, In all
of which young men prepared at this
school are now pursuing their studies.
B. Science and .Modern Languages.
In this course students have been pre
pared for such technical schools as
Stevens Institute of Technology, Mas
sachusetts Institute of Technology,
Sheffield Scientific School and for West
Point and Annapolis.
C This department gives a thorough
and comprehensive course of Instruc
tion to students who do not desire to
continue their studies In college. It em
braces English, mathematics, history,
science, languages and the following
elective studies: Surveying, analytical
geometry, calculus, Horace, LIvy, men
suration, bookkeeping, botany, science
of government, and Herodotus, with ad
ditional readings from Homer.
Thorough Mode of Teaching.
As an evidence of the thorough man
ner of Instruction of Brown Prepara
tory, the following letter is published:
Office of the Surrogate of Camden
Camden, N. J Aug. 29, 1S09.
Brown Preparatory School.
Dear Sirs: I beg leave to state that
your course In preparation for the
medical department of the University
or Pennsylvania, which my son Hayden
A. West intended, was a great success.
Before ho went to you ho hnd only a
common school education bud after a
short period in your school he passed
an excellent examination and was ad
mitted to the medical department of
the University of Pennsylvania. He
passed two ye.ua successfully in tho
University, but his health falling ho
went south and entered the University
of Tennessee whore he remained two
years making a four years course in
all graduating last spring. In evi
dence of his success, I icfer you to the
enclosed catalogue of that Institution,
where you will see that he has been
appointed Lecturer on Bacteriology
and Microscopy, also Demonstrator of
Laboratory Microscopy and Bacteri
ology. All this I claim has been duo to your
thorough mode of touching. I sincere
ly thank you for tho Interest which you
trtok lu him when ho attended your
My boy Informs me that your atten
tion Is tho same to all students alike
and he has recommended your school
to several young men of Tennessee.
This will probably bo of value later on.
Very sincerely yours,
