The text-books mentioned above are those used when the several subjects were last taught, but they are liable to be changed.
The needs mentioned in my last annual report have since been generally provided for by legislative appropriations.
Unfortunately these were made so late in the season that it was impossible to erect the needed buildings this year, so that we find it necessary to restrict somewhat the number of new students to be received, but by the next commencement—that of 1888—we shall have our capacity increased by a new dormitory, an additional building for the accommodation of officers and their families, a fine horticultural laboratory and an addition to our mechanical shops, which practically doubles their capacity.
