-nation satisfactory to the faculty in the required studies.
THE NORMAL DEPARTMENT covers a period of two
years. To enter this department applicants must be six-
teen years of age, be thoroughly grounded in all the
-common school branches of study, pass an examination in
all the intermediate studies of the Academic and Pre-
-paratory Courses, and possess the requisite moral and
-physical qualifications. Graduates from this course will
receive regular diplomas and the degree of Licentiate of
Instruction. No student will be allowed to graduate
without taking the full two years' course. By act of the
Legislature of 1895, diplomas from this school are made
-first-grade certificates, good in any county in the State.
DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL SCIENCE.
T. W. TALLEV, Instructor.
Special attention is given to the instruction in the
natural sciences. The services of an accomplished physic-
ist have been secured; and investigation in this rapidly
widening field of human research is made a specialty.
With a well-equipped laboratory at command and the
skillful guidance of a specialist, students have exceptional
advantages.
In this department three things are kept constantly
:in view: first, the giving to the student a thorough ground-
work in the general principles of each science; second, the
implanting in hini of'a love for his work; and third, the
begetting in him a desir4to know more and a disposition
-toward research. '

Natural Philosophy.
We have the good fortune to have, for the instructing-
in this branch, all the apparatus necessary for illustrating
the principles and general laws of Samotology; Mechanics,
Acoustics, Pyronimics, Optics, and Electricity; and experi-
ments are conducted daily along with the recitations in
order that the student may see the principles and laws.
which he studies in practical operation. In addition t-
this problems are given involving the principles and laws-
and such lectures as will enable the student to grasp the
idea of the general worth of philosophical knowledge in.
the common, every-day affairs of life.
Chemistry.
The Chemical Laboratory is supplied with the most
necessary chemicals for performing the experiments
requisite to the showing of the general principles of the
science. The experiments are made, as far as possible,
by the students themselves. Every effort is made in the-
study of the laws, etc., to bring under the pupil's eye the
reality itself, and thus to teach him to observe and reason.
From time to time the work as laid down in the text is
supplemented by the teacher, as far :as, the limits of the
course and our facilities permit.
Botany.
The aim in this branch is to give the student a knowl--
edge of structural Botany and Phytology. A limited
amount of instruction is also given in Physiological
Botany. Plants are analyzed and classified daily. From
these the students make up their herbariums, and while a.
herbarium of twenty-five specimens is that required for-
promotion of the student, there is rarely a herbarium pre-
sented with less than twice that number. Students are-
encouraged to make the largest possible collections. The:

- microscope, with which may be shown all the intimate
.structure of the plant.
Physiology and Hygiene.
RtSizing the need of a more extended physiological
-and hygienic knowledge among those in whose interest the
-school wJt founded, a special effort is made in this branch.
not only 6 impart scientific knowledge, but also to point
out houw o maie a practical use of physiological and
-hygienic -Y es in daily life, and how to impress these
principles upon the masses. To this end a number of
lectures are given by the instructor, in addition to the
-course as laid down in the text. From time to time a dis-
.section is made of some of the lower animals, and through
this a pretty thorough knowledge of Anatomy is gained.
_A well-mounted human skeleton has recently been added
-to the apparatus for illustrating this branch of study.
Zoology.
A general study is made of all the orders in the ani-
-mal kingdom. The student is encouraged to make and
to report observations made upon the animals in his sur-
roundings. The classes have access to a private collection
of correctly-named insects, including all the commoner
-species and many of the rarer ones. Instruction is also
given in the art of mounting and preserving insects and
birds, etc., so far as the time allotted to the study will al-
low. A series of weekly lecturers.is given Ly the instructor
upon biological subjects, by means of which the student
.gains much knowledge not to be gotten from text-books,
and obtains some idea of the vastfieelds of knowledge which
-lie before him and with which he can become acquainted
only by a life's work. .





28 TENTH ANNUAL CATALOCUE.
Geology.
In this study much care is taken to point out the natural'
agencies at their work in the present day, shaping and
changing the physical and chemical condition of the earth.
By seeing these, the student is helped to a conception of
the work of these agencies upon the earth in the past.
The classes have access to a private collection of rocks and
fossils. By a study of these, and by a comparison of the
fossils described in the text-not in stock-withltheir mod-
ern representatives, the students are enabled to gain a
pretty thorough idea both of the rock fomatlons and the
life systems of the past.
THE PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF THE DEPARTMENT'
OF LAINGUAGES.
T. DES. TUCriER, Instructor.
In an age in which tti'erit of a mental acquisition'
is determined by the good it confers, a study which
does not directly tend to the useful may rightly be ques-
tioned in a place in a college curriculum.
The study'of the ancient classics has greatly, and with
much show of reason, declined in the latter part of the-
present century. The varied wants of man in the in--
tensely practical civilization of our time, are being evolved
by social and domestic causes far more freely than by
reasoning from the master minds of antiquity. Much of
the conclusion, in research, of past ages, has become worn-
j out lumber, stored away im the literary garret of the annals-
of the race, to be drawn upon only for use in certain times.
of need. But while sucLi is the fact, it is equally true that
s6 longas the classic languages contain much of the mat-
ter which forms the basis of the intellectual activities of
our day, so long shall it be necessary for the teacher to-





STATE NORMAL AND INDUSTRIAL COLLEGE. 29
know, more or less, the language through which the great
races of the past thought and spoke.
He who would be a full rounded teacher cannot afford
to be wholly ignorant of the fountain sources of thought at
which the masters of his profession have drank copiously
to enrich the text-books and the treatises relating to mind
culture. He cannot be indifferent to a knowledge of the
dead languages, unless he is to stand self-convicted of
ignorance of the bountiful fields of intellectual richness
on which success, specially in the arts of his work, de-
pends.
Believing then that the classics must needs enter into
the curriculum of the teacher, they have been incorporated
into the series of studies in the Normal College.
With the growth of the institution, the eminent
writers of the Greek and Latin will be carefully studied.
'For the present the Latin embraces a reading of only four
books of Csesar's Commentaries and Cicero's Orations,
while the Greek includes parts of the Anabasis and the
four Gospels.
One of the modern languages will be added to the
course.
DEPARTMENT OF rIATHEfIATICS.
T. V. GIBBS, Instructor.
The work of this department both guages and pro-
motes the development of the reasoning faculties of the
student mind. In all well-ordered schools, standing in
mathematics is considered one of the best criteria of the
pupil's advancement; while all uniform or general exami-
nations show it to be the severest test of the examinee's
mental strength. Realizing the importance, therefore, of
this branch of study, every effort is made to give
thorough, conscientious training and to secure painstaking,
unflagging work. A constantly-widening horizon gives.

30 TENTH ANNUAL CATALOGUE.
an ever-broadening view, lending interest and zeal to the
search for truth. Pupils are required to deduce their own..
rules, expressed in their own words, under the criticism of
class and teacher. Principles, not solutions, are the ends
sought, and no problem is considered to be satisfactorily
solved until all the principles involved are understood and
elucidated. This necessarily involves much of original
work and the elementary study of the philosophy of the
laws of mathematical science.
The course embraces the elements of written and
mental Arithlmetic, through operations involving g the me-
tric system, mensuration, percentage and proportion;
Algebra, through quadratics, the progressions and loga-
rithms; Geometry, Plane and Solid; and Plane Trigo-
nometry, through the solution of oblique triangles, in-
volving the elements of Plane Surveying; concluding with
a review of common school arithmetic, in the senior year,
to enable the student to bring to a deeper study of the.
simpler rules of arithmetic the strength of mind gained in
the higher mathematics.
The department is fortunate in having all the neces-
sary apparatus for illustration and demonstration, includ-
ing a fine engineer's transit, a surveyor's vernier compass,
and, for the use of the class in Astronomy, an achromatic
telescope of very satisfactory power.
DEPARTMENT OF PEDAGOGY.
MRS. F. R. KEYSER, Instructress.
A fair idea of the science of mind lies at the very
foundation of the fitness to teach. The study of Psychol-
ogy therefore forms the basis of work in this department.
This is followed by a study of the theory of Teaching, of
Methods of Imparting Instruction, and of School Manage-
ment. Actual teaching is done by the pupil-teachers

under the eye of a skilled instructress. The best teachers
are visited for observation and comparison of methods,
and child-study is conducted under the most favorable
conditions.
This department is under the charge of a graduate of
the Normal College of the City of New York, and is con-
ducted with all the advantages of equipment, competency
and experience.
*;'. : .' .
MUSICAL COURSE.
P. A. VON WELLER, Instructor.
The Musical Department, both vocal and instru-
mental, is under the care of a thoroughly practical and
successful teacher. Pupils may receive a partial or full
course, the latter of which covers a period of four years.
and embraces instruction in Thorough Bass, Harmony and.
Composition. Certificates and diplomas'will be given to
graduates only. Candidates for the partial or short.
course certificates must have a thorough knowledge of
the theory of music, at least.
Instruction in vocal music is free. By the adoption
of the conservatory plan, the cost of lessons on the piano
or organ is brought down to' about two dollars per month.
A nominal charge of twenty-five cents per month is
charged for the use of instruments in practice.
INDUSTRIAL COURSE.
This course comprises at present the- Mechanical,
.Agricultural, Dairy and Domestic Science departments.
.Arrangements have been made in some of these de-
partments by which industrious, promising male youths,
who are over 15. years of; age and otherwise eligible to
membership, and who have never been in attendance,

may, if they desire to do so, work out one-half of their
board' and laundry expenses, if they will pay the other
half at one payment, in advance, on entering the school.
This cash payment, including the Incidental fee, will not
be over thirty-five dollars for the entire year. As the
number to whom this opportunity can be given will be
'limited, every young man desirous of availing himself of
it is requested to notify the Secretary at once and to pre-
sent himself on October 4, I897, for enrollment. This is a
rare chance for ambitious and earnest young men. It
cannot for the present be offered to young ladies.
The Ilechanical Department..
L. .1 HIIELAND, Instructor.
This- department is under the control of a thoroughly
,educated and skilled mechanic and an experienced teacher.
The course of study and practice in the wood-work-
ing shop covers a period of three years. The training
includes exercises in carpentry, cabinet-making, wood-
turning, pattern-making, etc. The course also embraces
-a number of finished articles.

AGRICULTURAL DEPARTfIENT.
A. CUPPAGE, Instructor.
The Department of Agriculture is comprehensive in
its scope, embracing the culture of all semi-tropical field
crops, gardening, fruit-growing, dairy husbandry, and.
rearing of live stock.
This department, in all its branches, is under the im-
mediate supervision and direction of the Professor of
Agriculture, and affords the best facilities to illustrate by
actual practice the theories taught in the class-room.
Agriculture, in its several branches, is taught as an applied
science. Lectures by the Professor of Agriculture upon
the science of agriculture are delivered to the sections
daily. The students are also taken to the field, where the
practical applications of the scientific principles taught are
demonstrated by object lessons.
Farm labor is intended as educational, not only in
teaching the student how to work, but in broadening his
understanding and making him familiar with the various
industrial operations of the farm.
As a means of illustration, corn, cotton, oats, rye,
sugar-cane, potatoes (Irish and sweet), cassava, melons,
tomatoes, pinders, chufas, sorghum, field peas, forage
plants and various grasses and lovers are grown upon the
farm. The students are brought into immediate contact

with the live stock in attending to the milking and the
care of the animals, also for the purpose of feeding, and
comparing the different points. For the purpose of illus-
trating differences between the breeds of cattle, thorough-
bred Jerseys, Jersey grade and native cows are kept on the
farm. The students become familiar with all of these,
and to them is intrusted the feeding, the milking and care
of the herd.
Poland-China and Berkshire hogs are reared on the
farm, where the superiority of these breeds over the native
hogs is daily noticeable. A large amount of meat is
raised by this department, and the killing, dressing, and
curing of meat is made educational.
A full and complete outfit of farm machinery and
implements is provided on the place, including'an ensilage
cutter, mower, tedder, horse rake, harrows, sulky plow,
two-horse plows and all the one-horse plows and farming
tools necessary for practical use.
Experiments are constantly conducted with new and
improved varieties of field and garden seeds, with various
kinds of fruit and with foreign grasses.
Soil tests are also conducted to ascertain the relative
value of commercial fertilizers and barnyard manure.
'Series of experiments are conducted with composts and
competitive experiments are made to ascertain the most
economical and remunerative system of fertilization, by
the application to the soil of the 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.
A course of lectures is given upon the care of domes-
tic animals in health and disease. Anatomy, Pathology and
Material Medica, are taken up in this course sufficiently to
enable an intelligent student to successfully 'treat the
common ailments of live stock. There are usually a suffi-
cient number of animals coming in for treatment from the
outside to enable these lectures to be very interesting and
practical.

of the care and handling of milk, cream, butter and
cheese, and the practical methods of dairy work in differ-
ent sections of the country. Special facilities are offered
the dairy students, and every encouragement is afforded
to make them proficient in the art of dairying. Those be-
.coming well versed in this course can readily command
permanent and profitable situations. All resident stu-
dents, male-and female, receive practical instruction in
butter-n making The excellent butter used on the tables

DEPARTfIENT OF DOMESTIC SCIENCE.
-'MRS. E. M. HOWARD, Instructress.
The object of this department is to teach the princi-
ples and methods of needlework, cooking, and other
branches which must be considered in the daily adminis-
tration of every home.
Such study leads to more healthful living, to the cul-
tivation of good taste, also to impress upon the pupil the
value of order, accuracy and economy.
The courses given are cooking, sewing, dressmaking
and laundry work.
Sewing.
This course includes educational sewing, darning,
household mending, underwear and dressmaking (tailor
system). The complete course is divided into three parts,
each of which covers a school year.
The first year comprises instruction in all the differ-
ent stitches used in hand-sewing, including patching and
darning. Practice is given in all the various stitches upon
small pieces of various materials which are supplied by
the school.

Industrial training for young ladies is a growing
feature in the work of the school. The large and beauti-
ful dormitory hall recently completed for the young ladies
offers fine facilities in this direction. The school has
been exceptionally fortunate in securing the services of a
matron of rare qualifications-a lady of fine culture, ripe
experience and thorough devotion to the work. Girls
intrusted to her care will be sure of careful, conscientious
training. The work thus far has been exceptionally suc-
cessful, the young ladies taking great interest in the
department.
No student, male or female, who has neglected the
industrial courses will be allowed to graduate from the
literary course.
All students will be expected to give a certain amount
of work to the institution in return for the many rare
facilities afforded.

GENERAL INFORMATION.
It is a duty devolving upon every true Floridian to
develop as rapidly as possible the educational resources of
our State. It is a well-established fact that a large per-
centage of the young people who are sent out of the State
to be educated locate, when through with their studies, in
other States, not because of intrinsically superior advan-
tages, but simply from the love of change inherent in the
young. Thus the State loses annually many of its bright-
est minds, as is evidenced by the large number 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 great work of develop-
ing 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 prefer-
ence will always be given in appointment to those holding
diplomas from a State institution. It is also a well-known
fact that young persons leaving Florida, with its highly
favorable climatic conditions, are apt to be affected un-
favorably in health by the changes to higher and colder
latitudes. Therefore, considerations of State pride,
health and economy point to the propriety of patronizing
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
ordinary 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.

History.
The College was established in 1887, in accordance
with constitutional provision (see Article XII, Section I4);.
and, by legislative enactment (see Laws of Florida,
Chapter 3692), it was located at Tallahassee, with an
annual appropriation of $4,000 made for its maintenance.
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, Assistant Principal, with an
attendance of fifteen pupils, who had succeeded in passing
the preliminary examination.
In 1891, the school having outgrown its accommoda-
tions in the city5 was moved out to Highwood, in the sub-
urbs of Tallahassee, where, on a large and historic planta-
tion of over a hundred acres, the State has made extensive
preparations to accommodate all who may come. The
number of teachers has been largely increased and the
equipment and facilities made among the best in the South.
Support.
The College is supported by annual appropriations.
-from the Federal and State Governments. It was estab-
lished-and prior to 1891 maintained-by the State as
a school for normal and manual training .of teachers.
This feature of the work of the school is still maintained

'thousand dollars." The appropriation for Florida, by offi-
cial action of Governor Fleming, formally agreed to by
the State Board of Education and the Trustees. of the'
Agricultural College at Lake City, and ratified by the
Legislature at the session of I891, has been equally divided
between the State Agricultural and Mechanical College for
white students and the State Normal and Industrial College.. .
for colored students. Th.e State continues its annual appro-
priations as its share of the support of the school.
By special consent of the State Superintendent, attend-
ance at this school will be counted in county examinations
the same as attendance at summer normal schools.
Location.
Tallahassee, the seat of the institution, is the capital
of the State of Florida and the county:seat of Leon County.
It is located in the beautiful hill country of Middle Florida,
and is noted for its freedom from epidemics and its general
healthfulness. It is a town of about three thousand inhabi-
tants, is the center of the finest agricultural section of the
State, and is notably free from the vices, attractions and-
dangerous-associations of the larger cities. The commu-
nity is heartily in sympathy with the faculty in its endeavor
to make the school a blessing of wide-spread influence
through the State, and cooperates 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 pastors and sabbath-school

superintendents, offer to the young such religious training
and influences as will promote their religious development.
Students are required to attend some church service every
Sunday. Daily morning and evening devotions are con-
ducted on the grounds. Weekly prayer-meetings are con-
ducted by the students themselves, assisted by members
*of the faculty.
The school site is a magnificent property, with spacious
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 C61-
lege farm stretch away across the surrounding valley.
The grounds and buildings are lighted by gas, bountifully
supplied with water by the city water-works, and connected
by telephone with the city. 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 all important
matter to students. It has been found by actual expe-
rience that students constantly surrounded by the educative
atmosphere of the school show a much greater proportion-
ate improvement in a given time than students who are
only a part of the time in direct contact with its influences.
The constant association with others having the same spe-
cific aim, the social contact, the kindly criticism, and the
moral support of teachers and fellow-students, and more
than all, the constant supervision such students receive,
make it highly advantageous to any student to live within
college walls. A large dormitory hall for the girls a;
been recently erected.
