    addition to the full Mining Engineering
course, two short courses have been put into oper
ation with a view etch to reach certain require
ments. • One is a two years course of instruction
in the principles of mining and treatment of ores,
coal and other minerals; it also includes assay
ing, surveying and mathematics. Candidates for
admission to this course must pass an examination
in algebra to quadratics. The other course is
intended to accommodate any who can devote
twelve weeks to the theory of mining and mining
machinery and is expected to satisfy the desires
of ambitious miners seeking to improve their con
dition. Both courses, especially the latter, will
fill long felt wants m this State. The twelve
weeks course will be of great advantage to miners
from the great coal fields to the west of us, as
well as from all parts of the State, and we would
be glad to see them among us.
