Collegiate Department.
By reference to the year book ot 1899 and 1900 it will be
observed that the courses ot study are more complete and
the field of research broader than they have been at any
time In the history of our institution.
As advancement is made In culture and intelligence a
demand for institutions of a higher class of work is necessitated.
To meet these demands we have adopted such
courses of study as the experience and observation of years
of labor and thought have proven to be the most natural
and will lead to the most complete mastery of the subjects
to be pursued It is our aim to teach students to think
and act for themselves' Not only do we endeavor to arouse
in students a desire to master the study which they are to
pursue, but to Instruct them in those general principles
that lead men to a higher and nobler plane- of action.
Students need, as we think, instruction in their social relations
and moral conduct. We endeavor to tboronehlv
lmpresD'npon the. ralnds'of "o'ur pupils'
that accuracy ot knowledge, thoroughness In mental discipline,
correctness of expression, and morality are
make fe' what ltought to be'and can be, made.
The followlpg branches.wlllbe pursued during the spring
term: Mathematics, Geometry, Surveying, Astronomy,
Trigonometry, Mechanics and Calculus; Latin; Beginning
Latin, Casar; Engllah Literature; P.incoast'a text, some
of the recent writers, Philosophyof Literature and Draper's
Intellectual Development of Europe, and General History;
Sciences, Botany, Physics, Psychology and Chemistry.
Besides these a number of classes will be organized to suit
the demands of the pupils. In fact, we feel safe in saying
that we are prepared to meet the needs of all.
Teachers' Courses.
These courses are under the instruction of the ablest
teachers in the school and the work done in them covers
every branch required by the Slateor a County certificate,
a State certificate or a S'tate diploma Every faithful and
energetic teacher expects to at least complete these courses
and obtain from the State the highest certificate of qualification
possible. The constantly growing demand for
well trained teachers, with broad and liberal preparation
for their work has made it necessary for us to provide the
very highest grade of instruction in each particular line ol
trje teachers' work. In order to do this, earh class has
been placed in the hands of a teacher who has nlade a spec
ialty ol the work and who will spire no
work popular and effective, While we
tion as will best prepare lor examinations wo most rigidly
insist npon a thorough understanding of the principles o.f
the subject taught. Our work in Pedagogical line? is Ins
tended to develop more capable and conscientious men and
women for all the departments of teaching.

done and will be done according to the best methods
that experience and observation suggest.

Lost in Cornfield.
The Harrington (Kansas) Times recites
an incident which took place in
thatlocallty, which will give Easterners
a vivid sense ot the extent oi a
Kansas cornfield. This Is the substance
of it:
"A farmer living four or five miles
out of town was out In his cornfield
shucking corn, and a little four-year-old
boy went along for company, ns
the afternoon was pleasant and the
little fellow wanted to "help papa
shuck corn " Along toward night be
started alone to go to the house, which
-was but a little way off, and that was
the last seen of him till after sunrise
the next morning,
"The farmer finished picking his
load of corn and went to the house,
supposing the boy was there, but on
inquiry found that such was not the
case. Search was at one instituted,
and the neighbors were called upon
to assist, and it wasn't long before the
cornfield were alive with men and
lanterns looking for the lost child.
And to ad"4 to the grief of the parents
and friends, the rain began to pour
' down In torrents between 10 and 11
o'clock but the boy was uowhere to
be found They continued Ihe search
in hearing no response. The next
morning one of the searching p.rty
came upon the wee one traveling in
one of the neighbor's cornfield, a lit
tie over hall a mile from home wtt
through lo the skin, his clothes cov j
ered with mud, indicating that he
had probably tired out during the
night and had lain down to take a
, euoizs."

Germany.
There has not been for twelve
years such an opportune time as now
lor puting this country on the sale
side In our commercial relations with
Germany, The term of Germany's
tariff schedule has nearly explred,and
a commission is now preparing the
scheme for the new one. Since these
bills have a fixed period during
which they are not subject to change,
It will be readily appreciated that the
prosperity ol the United States is to
considerable extent involved In the
conditions that may be placed on Imports
from this country As an In
rdhstrial country Germany would bo
.onltop glad to make favorable ar
laogenTents with the United States;
but something must be conceded tor
each favor expected, and a sort ot
reciprocity must prevail.

nbuudance there may be a limit to
our Industrial advance.
Under normal conditions two
causes can arrest our progress:
scarcity of labor and a loss of our
agricultural exports. With the immigration
we have had in such abundant
measure, together with our Increase
in native population, it would
seem impossible that labor should
ever be scarce. In quantity, perhaps
this may be true; but for the
manufactories some skill is required,
and intelligence above the ordinary
is needed. Then, for each additional
five or six families whole heads are
engaged in the shops or factories, one
farmer must start his plough for their
support, or else our exports must be
diminished by a corresponding
amount. This farmer must take up
new lands, less productive than those
now farmed, or else a subdivision of
lands now under cultivation must
take place. Both these steps have
been taken. The size of farms has
been decreased from 199 acres in 1S60
to 137 In 1890, and the number of
farms has Increased a great many
fold in this period.
While the total acreage under cultivation
has Increased rapidly, It has
not been greatly in excess of our in.
crease In population; so that we can.
not expect to continue to add to our
exports of foods unless we start upon
a fccheme of more Intense cultivation.
It is therefore, inevitable that sooner
or later we shall cease to .control the
food-supplies ol the world; and then,
as other contries become Independ
ent npon them, or at least shall no
longer be in a position to dictate
terms of exchange. It is now, while
we are strong in agricultural and industrial
exports, that we can mike
the best terms with the other members
in the family of nations; and It
Is now that we can accept the principle
ol economical division of labor,
with Its corallar that looks toward
frte trade, and with Its ethical Injunction
to live and help live. "The
Commercial Relations of the United
States and Germany," by James II.
