A HIGH GRADE MALE SCHOOL
' FOR M'MINNYILLE.

School cf High Grade.
The oft quoted injunction of Horace
Greely, "Go West, young man," has
of late years been justly paraphrased
into "Come South, young, middle
aged and old men," and the phrase the
'great West," la now changed into
that of the "wonderful South." It is,
However, not the province of the
present article to discuss the resources
and attractions of the . South as a
whole, nor of Tennessee in particular;
but to speak of McMinnville as a city
The location of McMinnville is one
of the best of the many good ones in
the South, and in Tennessee, for an
educational center for schools for
both sexes of the - highest grade.
Maury, in one of his works on Physi
cal Geography, says, in substance,
that the highest and most perfect
types of physical 'development in
man and woman are found in the
latitude of the highlands of Tonnes
see and Kentucky, embracing parts
of Virginia and North Carolina.
Whether this statement be true or
not, the location and healthfulness of
McMinnville make it n desirable
place for the establishment and the
ultimate success of a school of highest
grade for boys and young men.
The schools of McMinnville, at
present, are the best of their kind
While Cumberland Female College is
an mstltntion oi wnicn any ouue,
any city, might be Justly proud, and
the graded schools, under the man
agement of the present efficient
Superintendent, will compare favor
ably with those of larger cities, they
do not till the demand for schools for
the higher training of boys and young
The school needed is one wun a
course of study that is thorough, com
prehensive and practical a school
that will give to boys and young men
the "know, how," and fit them to be
come useful men and good citizens
Such a school would help every legiti
mate business in the town ; would be
a potent factor in bringing additional
pupils to the Female College, and it
would bring money to McMinnville
and surrounding country. -: - '
The readers of the Standard need
not be told of the Webb school at
Rellhuckle; the Terrill school at
Decherd ; the Normal at Winchester,
and others in this State. These schools
and their good influence are known,
and what has been done in the places
named can be done, on a smaller or
larger scale, in McMinnville. .
Cecilia n College, Kentucky, is a

even under the most unfavorable rir
cu instances. The Cecil Brothers,
Charles and Henry, some years before
the war, after vainly trying to get the
needed hclp'to build a school in their
county town, opened a boarding
school for young men on their fath
er'st farm, seven miles from a post
office They started the school in the
farm house with a few pupils, but
with a high grade curriculum. In
the course of a few years they had in
their college one hundred pupils at an
average price of three hundred ($!J(K))
dollars each. Now, their farm school,
their backwoods school, is Cecilia, a
town with two trunk railways and
other improvements in keeping with
the progress of the age. Cecilian Col
lege built the town and brought the
railways. Similar examples in other
States might be cited but, facts which
argue themselves need no argument ;
things which explain themselves need
The only question then is, does
McMinnville want a school of high
grade for the education of boys and
young men? If such a school is
wanted it is surely needed it will

prenie Court that acknowledgement
of charters of corporation cannot be
legally made before Notaries rubllc
causes that subject to be mentioned,
and the Legislature is asked to legal
ize such acknowledgement; and also
to amend the assessment laws so as
to give municipal corporations more
efficient and effectual means to col
lect property tax due them.
"The Legislature is also asked to
extend the corporate limits of Nash
ville and allow Knoxville to extend
her limits, and to amend the. school
laws so as to provide for the adop
tion of a history of Tennessee to be
taught in the public schools.
"The importation of dressed beef
will also be discussed and probably

A leading republican member of
Congress estimates that if Speaktr
Reed's code of rules are adopted as
reported to the House the appropri
ations will foot up at the end of the
session about $)0,(KK),0(M). At this
rate the time is not far distant when
Americans can no longer point with
pride to the fact that our system of
government is cheaper than themon
archies and empires of Europe.
