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. —At the meeting of the Athletic Association February Gth, a vote of thanks was tendered Gen.
