LITERARY' DEPARTMENT.
The Literary Department comprises Academic, Pre-
paratory and Normal Courses:
THE ACADEMIC COURSE is composed of three divisions,
to be known as the First, Second and Third Years.
To be entitled to admission to this department appli-
cants should have a knowledge of arithmetic, through frac-
tions, and a fair proficiency in English grammar, geogro -
phy and United States history, be able to write legibly,
and be of good moral character and sound health. This
course covers a period of three years, and ismdesigned oni-
for those whose previous opportunities may have bee. u
limited, or whose acquirements may prove, in the prelim-l
inary examination, to be superficial.
THE PREPARATORY COURSE is composed of two divi-
sions, to be known as the Junior and Senior Years. It i-
intermediate between the Academic and Normal Courses,
and is designed for those who have completed the Acade-
mic Course satisfactorily, or who have passed an exami-
nation satisfactory to the faculty in the required studies.
THE NORMAL COURSE covers a period of two years.
To enter this department applicants must be sixteen years
of age, be thoroughly grounded in all the common school
branches of study, and pass an examination in all the in-
termediate studies of the Academic and Preparatory
Courses, and possess the requisite moral and physical
qualifications. Graduates from this course will .receive
regular diplomas and the degree of Licentiate of Instruc-
tion. No student will be allowed to graduate without
taking the full two years' course.
DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL SCIENCE.
Special attention is given to instruction in the nat-;
ural sciences. The services of an accomplished physicist
have been secured, and investigation in this raplill
(K '

AGRICULTURAL DEPARTMENT.
The Department of Agriculture is comprehensive e in
its scope, embracing the culture of all the semi-trojPlical
field crops, gardening, fruit-growing, dairy husb;:nl-l1 r.
rearing of live stock, poultry and drainage.
This department, in all its branches, is under lte IIu-
mediate supervision and direction of the Professor .:'! Ag-
riculture, and affords the best facilities-o illustrate by ac-
tual practice the theories taught in the class-room. Ag-
riculture, in its several branches, is taught as an applied

oth Rocks, Georgia Games and the com-
Z;-.h breed has its separate enclosed walk.

ttarrows, sulky plow, two-horse plows and all
e' plows and farm tools necessary for practi-
ents are constantly conducted with new and
varieties of field and garden seeds, withvarious
~ait and with foreign grasses.
stes are also conducted to ascertain the relative





value of mercial ferti and barnyard manure
value of commercial fertilizers and barnyard manure. A
series of experiments i- 1.-iig conducted with composts,
and competitive experiments are made to ascertain the
most economical and remminrative system of fertilization,
by the application to tl-',, -i:.i! -I rlir element of plant food;
in which it is most deficient, and the application of the
proper fertilizer to the various plants for their most com-
plete development.
DAIRY DEPARTMENT.
"' ;. 11! attention is given in the course of lectures to
dairy husbandry, covering the theory in breeding dairy
stock, feeding for milk and butter, and of making and
shipping milk, cr',.ati, llutt, and cheese, and the practi-
cal methods of dairy work in different sections of the
country. Special facilities are offered the dairy students,
and every encouragement is afforded to make them profi-
cient in the art of dairying. Those becoming well versed
in this course can readily command permanent and prof-
itable situations.
Fair compensation is allowed the student for remu-
nerative work done on the farm or in the Mechanical
Hall. A limited number of industrious and faithful
students are thus ;i l. i ,1.,1 an opportunity of paying a part
of their'expenses, in addition to the benefits derived from
the manual training, but all students will be expected to
give a certain amount of work to the institution in return
for the many rare facilities tl.,, il.- i
Industrial training for young ladies is a growing
feature in the work of the school. The large and beauti-
lul 1 i!riiitory hall recently completed for the young
1a-,li', I. lTS increased facilities in this direction. Dairy-
inlg, 1. ultrying, sewing and general housework are being
taught. ;,id other branches of female industry will be ad-
ded ii tlh, near future. The school has been exception-

rior abll',utges ut b iuuply. flUtl the love of change inhe-
rent in the young. Thus the State loses annually many
.of its brightest minds, as is evidenced by the large num-
ber of Florida boys who have risen to prominence in
other parts of the country. These minds should, if
possible, be encouraged to remain at home to aid us in
the grL;iat work of developing our citizenship. Ample
facilities, for higher education are now offered to the
young people of our race, and liberal inducements are
offered to -attract the patronage 'of colored citizens.
In accordance with the settled policy of the State it
is believed, other things being equal, that a certain pref-
erence will always be given in appointment to those,
holding diplomas from a State institution. It is also a





I6
well-known fact that young persons leaving Florida, with its
highly favorable climatic conditions, are apt to be affected
unfavorably in health by the changes to higher and
colder latitudes. Therefore,.considerations of State pride,
health and economy point to the propriety of patroniz-
ing this school.
While the especial object of the school is to fit per-
sons for the profession of teaching, the literary course is
so arranged as to prepare the student for any of the ordi-
nary pursuits of life not requiring special training. The
institution, therefore, commends itself particularly to
such of our youth of both sexes as may desire to secure a
thorough English education.
Active teachers may enter the school at such times
as their respective school terms will allow, receiving
credit for the time spent in the institution each year and
their diplomas and degrees when the two full years
required by the regulations shall have been spent in the
school and the necessary examinations passed. Students
are urged, however, to enter at the beginning of the ses-
sion, as loss of time places them at a serious disadvan-
tage in the examinations, and very frequently causes
them the loss of a whole year's work.
HISTORY.
The College was established in 1887, in accordance
with constitutional provision, (see Article XII, Section
14); and, -by legislative -en-t:ttinlit (see Laws of Florida,
Chapter 3692), it was located at Tallahassee, with an
annual appropriation of $4,000.00 made for its mainte-
nance.
By action of the State Board of Education, it was
started October 5, 1887, in charge of T. DeS. Tucker,
.Principal, and T. V. Gibbs, Asst.-Principal, with an
attendance of fifteen pupils, who had succeeded in pass-
inug the preliminary examination.

_ io fqr Florida, by official action of Gov-
-o, tbrially agreed to by the State Board of
the trustees bf the Agricultural College
and ratified by the Legislature at the
1. has been equally divided between the
l'tural and lMee.lanii.al College, for white

tions a its share of the support of the school.
LOCATION.
'allahassee, the seat of the institution, is the capital
'atte ot' Florida and the county seat of Leon county.





It is located in the beautiful hill country of Middle Flor-
ida and is noted for its freedom from epidemics and its
general healthfulness. It is a town of about three thou-
sand (3,000) inhabitants, is the center of the finest agri-
cultural section of the State, and is notably free from the
vices, attractions and dangerous associations of the larger
cities. The community is heartily in sympathy with the
Faculty in its endeavor to make the school a blessing of
wide-spread influence through the State, and co-operates
willingly in every effort to further its interests. Churches
of the Primitive and Missionary Baptist, A. M. E., C. M.
E. and Episcopalian denominations, under earnest pas-
tors and Sabbath-school superintendents, offer to the
young such religious training and influences as will pro-
mote their religious development. Students are required
to attend some church service every Sunday. Daily
morning and evening devotions are conducted on the
,grounds. Semi-weekly prayer-meetings are conducted
by the students themselves. The Sabbath evening meet-
ing is conducted by members of the Faculty in rotation.
The school site is a magnificent property, with spa-
cious campus shaded by stately trees and located within
easy reach of the city, on a high hill overlooking the
Garden City, while on either side the well-tilled acres of
the college farm stretch .away across the surrounding val-
ley. The grounds and buildings are lighted by gas, and
bountifully supplied with water by the city water works.
Comfortable and convenient dormitory accommodations
have been provided. These dormitories are conducted
and controlled by the Faculty, and, unless excused by
special permission of the President, ALL STUDENTS NOT
RESIDENTS OF TALLAHASSEE WILL BE REQUIRED TO BOARD
AT THE SCHOOL. This is an important matter to students.
It has been found by actual experience that students
'"ostantly surrounded by the educative atmosphere of





_ -
J ,o ow a much gieAter proportionate improve-
f given time than students who are only a part
.M ixe in direct contact with its influences. The
asso,:iat1ion with others having the same specific

t of tea': heIr and fellow-students, and, more than
etc..e eol:utant supervision such students receive, make
