able them to compete with men for remunerative employment, should press for admission to institutions like Harvard and Columbia. It is interesting to note in this connection that the report of the president of Columbia College for 1886 included in the roll of students 13 matriculated in the collegiate course for women.
The Lasell Seminary, Auburndale, Mass., has made an endeavor, and apparently a successful one, to develop a scheme of instruction specially adapted to the practical needs of women upon whom will devolve the obligations and cares of domestic and social life. It includes careful instruction in anatomy and physiology, accompanied by lectures given by a well-known physician; also lectures on the principles of coinnion law given by a lawyer of note, and lectures, lessons, and practice " in the arts of domestic life, the principles of dress, artistic house furuishing, healthy homes, cooking, marketing, and all the principles which underlie the wisest management of hones." It is gratifying to know that the effort to establish such courses of instruction and training bave met with the cordial approval of patrons and others interested in the cause of woman's education. Surely experiments of this kind, which recognize tho special wants of a very large and influential class of American women, deserve no less encouragement than the efforts to secure to them the highest opportunities for general intellectual development and culture.
Statistics in detail of schools for the superior instruction of women will be found in Table 32. The following is a comparative summary of institutions, instructors, and pupils, from 1876 to 1886, inclusive (1883 omitted):
