From the above table it will be seen that on the whole over 410 graduates have averaged but 8 years out of college; which will explain why many of

them who would gladly be on a farm are not there, viz, :--they have not been able to lay up enough capital ahead to become independent farmers and until they can do so they are able to turn their education to better account as teachers. This may readily be seen by the following resumé.

[blocks in formation]

The two courses of study offered are the Agricultural and Mechanical, both of which are given in detail below. The Agricultural course has as an essential feature in addition to the class room work, daily manual labor for from two to three or four hours, including a certain time on farm and garden, and also in the carpenter shop and in military drill.

The mechanical students are required to spend two hours per day throughout the course in shop practice and from one to two hours in free-hand and mechanical drawing.
