A the Eagle iia heretofore said. the reniienf the Farmers' Congress In repatriable and It Is a matter of ryfriT t to many frlcuds of the college; Tli at the governor has Ignored It. There U no Just ground of complaint, however, that the present board of directors has not conducted the lu st It ut loll wisely and In pursuance of the object for which It was estab lished Hut It is not true. the Chronicle asserts, that "the college still closes Its course against youths who do not mskcs a certain amount of clas sical book learuliiK" is reuired as a condition of entering any of the three courses In agriculture, .trtl ulturc. and animal husbandry. If the editor of the Chronicle will refer to the last annual catalogue I if he hn not pre serveil the cop) he-nt him he ran get another on appllcrtloni he will And what the requirements are. The only one of the three course in ag riculture fur which a standard of at tainments In studies Is prescribed Is the full four-year course. The exam ination for this course Includes: Al gebra to quadratics; English gram innr. anil i (imposition, history of the I'nlted States; and an outline of gen eral history. Will anybody claim that there is any "classical book learuliiK" In thli? And even this ex amination, simple as It . may be dispense,! with at the illscretion of the president. Nor is It true that In any of the courses In sericulture the ccllege still Insists iimiii their spending years in adding to such learning"' The four-year course in agriculture Includes nothing that can properly he called "classical liook knowledge." Oh the contrary, everything, with one unlinsrtant exception. Is of direct practical value to the farmer, the hor ticulturist and the mock raiser. The single exception t that tW student Is required to learn enough of mllll tary science to enable hi in to under stand the drill regulations which are maintained for the sake of dicipllne. and this reipilrea very little of his time. For the benefit of those who "pre fer to spend their whole achool time on studies that will make thent more successful farmers and stock-raisers and orchardlsts" In other words, for the sake of those who lack the time, the means or the Inclination to take the full course in scientific agricult ure, a two-years course Is provided, for which there Is no entrance exam ination whatever.. A glance over page 4S of the catalogue will convince any one who Is willing to do the college Justice that this short courre includes nothing that Is not absolutely essen tial to one who makea any preten sion to being an educated farmer, gardener or stock-ralscr. But this Is not all. The directors and faculty have perfected plans for holding a Summer school for Far mers. In connection with a Summer Normal School, the announcement of which has just Imm-n printed and is now ready for distribution. The Sum mer school for farmers embraces short courses In agriculture horti culture and animal husbandry, so ar ranged that related subjects may be completed within two weojis. The college buildings, apparatus, experi ment station, farm, orchards, gardens and live stock of all kinds will be used to illustrate the instruction given In these courses and the ex pense of maintenance is reduced to the lowest possible minimum. These facta demount! ate that lie Chronicle baa misstated the case and that its strictures are unjust. If It wishes to be fair it will retract and apologxQ for its unfounded aserlon or the most useful Institution of barn In this state. But there Is reason to susect that the chronicle has been nursing a grudge against the board of directors of the A. and M. College, ever since they failed to elect I's can didate, Profeasor Horn of Hon ion, to the presidency of the college, in stead of choosing Honorable It. T. Mllncr, the present able incumbent.

Hy a process of lection each drawing of tbe subject bore fewer lines. When the drawing w as published most of those who look eU at It thought that It had been done with a few rapid strokes of tbe pen, whereas it probably represented a week's hard work. London News.
