mate that an arrangement could be

banding so near by, as Wilkes-Barre
so close to Scranton as to make tho
Iffer almost a local one, and the par-
Icular advantage of the Wilkes-Barre
listltute are fully set forth in the ar
Icle which follows.
History of the School.
IWIlkes-Barro Institute was chart-
red in 1S34 by the Presbytery of Lu-
krne and placed in charge of a Board
Trustees. The purpose ol the instl-
ition was to offer to the girls and
oung women of Wilkes-Barre and
Iclnlty good opportunities for the study
languages, ancient and modern; his-
ry, literature, art, science, and civll-
atlon. Tho school was carried on
itliout Interruption until 1S72, when it
as temporarily closed.
In 1876 it was reopened and in the
Mowing year Miss Elizabeth II. Itock-
pll, a teacher of wide and successful
jerlence, took charge of the school,
lalnlng the princlpalshlp until the
so of the academic year, June, 1809.
through tho devotion nnd wisdom of
Rockwell the school gained during
long administration a firm and
rong foundation of scholarship and

The government of the bchool Is so

habits of self-control and self-respect.
Jpon each one rests the responsibility
of showing herself trustworthy In all
nor relations with teachers and fellow

The nucleus of a school library has

The school has four departments:
The Academic, tho Preparatory, the
Primary and the Kindergarten.
The Academic Department provides a
broad and thorough education for two
classes of young women: (1) those who
prepare for college: (2) those who In
tend to complete their studies In this
school. To both these classes of stu
dents tho school alms to give the best

The courses in the Academic Depart
ment are partly required and pattly
elective. The required courses include
those which nro regarded as of greatest
importance in laying a strong founda
tion for further intellectual work.
The elective courses give opportunity
to the Individual student to shape her
work with a view to the furtherance of
future plans. Those who Intend to pic
pare for college must elect the courses
needed to meet the college entrance re
quirements. Those who do not Intend
to go to college may elect any courses
which the curriculum offers, but their
choice must be submitted to the princi
pal for approval.
Special attention is paid to prepar
ation for Barnard, Bryn Mnwr, and
Radcliffe examinations. The certificate
of tho schoof Is accepted at Mount
Holyoke, Smith, Vassar and Wellesley.
School and College Certificate.
Four four-hour courses per year, or
their equivalent, are required for gradu
ation from the Academic Department.
Students who complete four years of
attendance In the Academic Depart
ment, but who do not accomplish the
entire amount of work required for the
diploma, may receive a certificate
stating the amount of work satisfac
torily done in each subject.
Students intending to enter college
from this school must give notice of
such Intention at least two years before
graduation. The principal reserves the
right In all cases of determining
whether the certificate of admission to
college shall be given. The school
diploma does not carry with It the col
lege entrance certificate.
The Intermediate Department gives
thorough training In the fundamental
subjects of education. The needs of In
dividual pupils aro constantly consid
ered and aro met as far as possible.
French and German are elective
throughout this course, but it Is recom
mended thut If only one modern lan
guage be taken during the years of the
Intermediate course, that French rather
than German be chosen. Latin Is be
gun In tho fourth year.
The Primary Department receives
pupils at tho earliest school age. The
branches taught in this department me
geography with sand-table work; na
ture studies, with constant Illustrations
by means of pictures and objects; rend
ing, by the rational method, and with
supplementary reading at homo; music;
drawing; and physical culture.
The Klndergaiten receives both boys
and girls. The older Kindergarten
pupils are taught the beginning of
rending 'and writing, in addition to the
regular Kindergarten subjects.
Rooms in tho school building have
been fitted up as a gymnasium, and tho
work has been placed in charge of Miss
Maude Van Horn, u graduate, of the
Sargent School of Gymnastics, Cam

should decide ns enrly as possible which

The Tribune's Offer.
Tho Tribune offers a scholarship in
tho Wilkes-Barre Institute for threu
years, with tuition charges paid, to the
young woman who, by her success in
this Educational Contest, is entitled to
a choice of the scholarship.
TO YOUNG WOMEN
A Scholarship Which the Young
Lady, Who Is Highest in the List
of Contestants at the Close, Is Sure
No young man in The Tribune's Edu
cational Contest can select the scholar
ship In the Wilkes-Barro Institute as
a special toward, as only young ladies
are admitted to that Institution. This
makes It absolutely certain that some
young lady among tho list of contest
ants will secute this valuable reward,
no matter how many young men finish
ahead of her. Of course there aro other
scholarships which are open to both
young men and young women, but this
Is exclusively for the latter and, It Is
well worth securing. It does not In
clude board and room, but this Is hurd
ly necessary as the student can reside
at home and easily go to and from
Twenty-eight of the thirty-three
scholarships offered aro available to the
young ladles In the contest, among
them being those In Syracuse univer
sity, Wllllamsport Dickinson Semi
nary, Dickinson Colleglnte-Preparntory
School, Keystone Academy, School of
the Lackawanun, and the Cotult Cot
tages. Thore Is a great opportunity
for some of tho young ladles here, and
parents and friends of those who are
now In tho contest, or who may enter
later, should do all that they can to
encourago them In their efforts to se
cure an advanced education.
Eaily In tho contest tho ladles did
not take a very active Interest, but they
aro beginning to leullzo what Is within
their leach. Last year It was a young
lady who was at the very top when tho
contest ended, anil It is quite possible
for the same result to ho accomplished
this year beforo tho contest; closes on
October 25, Twelvo weeks beforo the
coso the young lady who won last
year had not scored a point, nnd the
present contest has still eleven weeks
to run. There may be some wonderful
changes before these eleven weeks aro
This would Indicate that there Is still
time to enter, and tho best months for
making' a canvass iue still uhead.

IN VIEW of tho closely succeeding
events In American history, the
declaration of republican princi
ples by Lnfrcnlcrc constitute a
most Interesting and remarkable
document. This declaration wiib is
sued at New Orleans, Oct. 20, 17G8. It
lo tho preamble to the statement of
grievances made by Lafrentere, asjtt
tornoy general nnd senior member" of
the Superior Council of tho colony of
Louisiana, at a session of tho council
on tho date above given. Following Is
the text of the declaration:
"Without populntlon there can be no
commerce, and without commerce no
population. In proportion to the ex
tent of both Is tho solidity of thrones.
Both aro fed by liberty and competi
tion which are tho nursing mothers of
the state, of which the spirit of mo
nopoly Is tho tyrant and stepmother.
Without liberty 'there are but few vir
tues. Despotism breeds pusillanimity
and deepens tho abyss of vices. Man
Is considered as sinning beforo God
only because he retains his free will,
Where is the liberty of our planters,
of our merchants, of all our Inhabit
ants? Protection and benevolence
have given way to despotism. A sin
gle authority seeks to absorb and an
nihilate everything. Without running
the risk of being taxed with guilt, no
man of any class can longer do any
thing but tremble, bow his neck to
tho yoke and kiss the ground. The
Superior Council, bulwark of the tran
quility of virtuous citizens, has sup
ported Itself only by the combined
forces of the probity and disinterest
edness of Its members and of tho con
fidence of the people in that trib
unal. AVlthout taking possession of the col

and patents according to the laws,

to allovlato and calm tho murmurs of

nlways been rendered with the soma
exactness, although you have never
thought proper to make representa
tions of the Infractions of tho act of

give encouragement to a mass of dis
contented people, threatened with tho
most formidable calamities; but now
