ORGANIZATION.
The C Illege, as at l.rtaseUt. -rgauize'l, eo uists of a Literary,
a Musical and an Industrial course.
Literary Course.
The Literary course comprises the Normal and the Pre-
paratory Departments.
The Preparatory Department is composed of three divis-
ions, known as the Senior, Middle and Junior Preparatory
Years (the Junior Preparatory Year comprising "A" and
" B classes). To be entitled to admission to this depart-
ment applicants should have a knowledge of arithmetic,
through fractions, and a fair proficiency in English grammar,
geography and United States history, be able to write legibly
and be of good moral character and sound health. This
course covers a period of four years and is designed only for
those whose previous opportunities may have been limited or
whose acquirements may prove, in the preliminary examina-
tion, to be superficial.
The Normal course covers a period of two years. To enter
this d.leprtment, applicants mut be sixteen years of age, be
thoroughly grounded in all the common school branches of
study, have a knowledge of Latin, to Coesar; of algebra,
through quadratics, have fair acquaintance with general his-
tory and rhetoric, and possess the requisite moral and physi-
cal qualifications. Graduates from this course will receive
regular diplomas, the degree of Licentiate of Instruction, and
a teacher's certificate of first grade, good for life. No student
will be allowed, to graduate without tL.kinur the full two yearc'
course., Applicants for admission should bring a certificate
of good character from their county superintendent or last
teacher.

12
Musical Course.
The Musical department, both vccal and instrumental, is
under the care of a thoroughly practical 'and successful
teacher,.a.graduate from England, trained in the Queen's
private chapel, St. George's, at Windsor.' Pupils may re-
ceive a partial or full course, the latter' of which covers a
period of four years and embraces instruction in Th.,roulh
Bass, Harmony, Orchestration and Composition. Certificates.
and diplomas will be given-to graduates only. Candidates
for the partial, or short course, must ha-e a thorough knowl-
edge of the theory of music, at least,
Instruction in vocal music is free. By the al'optiou of the.
conservatory plan, the' cost of lessons on the piano or organ
is bought down to about two dollars per month. A nomi-
nal charge of twenty-five cents per m onth is charged for the
use of instruments in practice.
Industrial 'Course.
This course comprises at present the Miehliniie I, Agricul-
tural.and Dairy department<. As -soon as possible other de-
partm nts, both for boys and girls, will be added..
THE MECHANICAL DEPARTMENI.
This department is under the control of a thoroughly edu-
cated and skilled mechanic-a -iraduat.e of the Chicago
iManual Trail.inl School and an experienced teacher. The
cci rse of -tudy and practice' covers a period .ol.five years.
Af Igranduates from' the'full' coursewill receive.the degree of
i The training includes exercises in carpentry, cabinet-
maliing. wood turning, pattern making, moulding, casting,
fr:,rging, brazing, soldering, tempering, iThilpiog, filing and
i~~~~~~i~~~~~., t".





13
general machine shop work. The course also embraces a
number of finished articles. Instruction is given in the
proper care of st.-amn engines and boilers and in mechanical
drawing tl ro:uglhout the whoh: course.
The e':lil.met or the wood room is as follows-
1 10-horse power horizontal enlgii:- and boiler.
1 Circular saw.
1 Hand saw
1 Gig saw.
1 Grind stone
1 Speed lathe, 12-foot bed, 14-inch swing
6 Speed lathes, 3-foot beds, 8-inch swing.
20 Cabinet makers' benches.
Bench and turning tools for twen'y-seven boys.
Much of the furniture in use in the school is made in this
department.
AGRICULTURAL DEPARTMENT.
The department of Agriculture is comprehensive in its
scope, embracing the culture of all the semi tropical field
crops, gardening, fruit growing, dairy husbandry, rearing of
live stock, poultry and drainage.
This department, in all its branches, is under the imme-
diate supervision and direction qf the Professor of Agricul-
ture, 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 classes twice each week. The
students are then taken to the field where the practical ap-
plication of the scientific principles taught are demonstrated.
Farm labor is intended as educational, not only in teach-
ing the student how to work, but in broadening his under-
standing and making him familiar with the various industrial
operations of the institution.
As a means of illustration, corn, cotton, oats, rye, sugar
cane, potatoes (Irish and sweet), tobacco, melons, pinders,
chufa%, s:orglLum, fi d11 peas, forage plants and various grasses
I~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

are growil upon the farm. The students are l.'r.uthbt into
immediate contact.with the:live stock in attenliiia to the
milking and the care and keep. of the, animals. Fior the,
purpose of illustrating differences between the breeds of,
cattle, thoroti. olll:re, 1 Jertey-., Jeersey:grades and i-ative (ows
are kept on the farm. The students become familiar with all
these and to them is entrusted the f'eding, thi milking and
care of the herd.
Poland China and Berkshire hogs are reared on the farm,
where the ruperiority of these breeds over the native hogs is.
.daily noticeable.- The poultry yards contain the barbed
Plymodth -Roks, Georgia (numes nnl the common fowl.
Each breed has its separate enclosed Walk.'
A full and complete outfit of farm machinery and imple-
ments is provided on the place, including a rtenm engine,
ensilage cutter; manure spreader, mower, tedder, horse rake,
harrows, sulky plow, two-horse plows and all the one-horse
plows and farm tools neqess ary for practical use.
Experiments are constnnt.ly conducted with new and im-
proved varieties of field and garden seeds, with various kinds
of fruits and with foreign grasses.
Soil tests are also 'conducted to ascertain the relative
value of commercial fertilizers and barnyard manure. A
series of experiments are being conducted with composts,
and competitive experiments are made to ascertain the most
economical and remunerative system of fertiliz:tiou. by.the
applica ion to thesoil of the element of plant food, in which'
it is most deficient, and the application of the proper fertili-:
zer to the various plant. for; their most complete/developmenth..
DAIRY DEPARTMENT.
Special, attention is given in the.course of lectures to
dairy husbandry, covering the. tbeory in Ireed:li n dairy stock,
feeding for milk- and. butter, and of making 'and shipping
milk, cream', butter and cheese, and the practical methods of'
dairy work in different sections of the country. Special
rf: filit;ei- are offered dairy students and every ence-, r i Lierllt
is firl, ieil to make them proficient in the art of dairying.;





15
Those becoming well versed in this course can readily .oIon-
mand permanent and profitable situations.
Fair compensation is allowed the .tuwlents for remunera'
tive work doneon the farm or in the lMeh.bnin-i:l Hall. A
limited number of industrious and faithful students are thus
afforded 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
afforded.
Industrial Training for young ladies is a growing feature
in the work of tte school. In addition to dairying, laundry-
ing, sewing and general housework are being taught and
other branches of female industry will be added in the near
future.

GENERAL INFORMATION.
It is a duty devolving upon every true Floridian to de-
velop as rapidly as possible the educational resources of our
state. It is a well established fact that a large percentage 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 advantages but simply from
the love of change inherent in the young. Thus the state
loses annually many of its brightest minds, as is evidenced by
the large number of Florida boys who have risen to promi-
nence 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 developing our citizenship. A mple 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. Not only are instruction
and incidentals free, but first grade certificates, good for life,
are given to all graduates of the institution. In accordance
with the settled policy of the state it is believed, other things
being equal, that a certain preference will always be given in
appointment to those holding diplomas from a state institu-
tion. It is also a 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 patronizing this
school.
While the especial object of the school is to fit persons 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,
2





18
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 C ill 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 regula-
tions shall have been spent in the school and the necessary
examinations passed. Students are urged, however, to enter
at the beginning of the session, as loss of time places them
at a serious disadvantage in the examinations, and very fre-
quently 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 enactment (see Laws of Florida, Chapter 3692),
it was located at Tallahaseee, with an annual appropriation
of $4,000.00, 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, Asst.-Principal, with an attendance of fifteen.
pupils, who had succeeded in passing the preliminary exami-
nation.
In 1891. the school, having outgrown its accommodations
in the city, was moved out to Highwood, in the sibul)ils of
Tallahassee, where, on a large and historic plantation of over
a hundred acres, the state has made extensive preparation to
accommodate all who may come. The number of teachers
has been largelyincreased 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 established and,
prior to this year, 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 as the specific end and





19
aim of the institution. The Morrill bill, enacted into law
August 30, 1890, by congress, gave to each state and terri-
tory the sum of fifteen thousand dollars for the year ending
June thirtieth, 1890, and an annual increase of the amount
of such appropriation thereafter for ten years by an addi-
tional sum of one thousand dollars over the preceding year,
and the annual, amount to be paid thereafter to each state
and territory shall *be twenty-five thousand dollars." The
appropriation for Florida, by official action of Governor
Fleming; formally agreed to by the State Board of Educa-
tion and the trustees of the Agricultural College at Lake
City, and ratified by the legislature at its last session, has
been equally divided between the State Agricultural and
Mechanical College, for white students, and the State Normal
and Industrial College, for colored students. The state con-
tinues its annual appropriations as its share of the support
of the school.
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 health-
fulness. It is a town of about three thousand (3,000) 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 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 pastors and Sabbath school superintendents,
'offer to the young such religious training and influences as
will promote their religious development. Daily morning
and evening devotions are conducted on the grounds. Semi-
weekly prayer meetings are conducted by the students them-
selves,
k ~~~~~~~

"The school site is a magnificent property, with spacious
grounds 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 valley. Comfortable
and convenient dormitory accommodations have been pro-
-vided. 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 constantly surrounded by the educa-
"tive atmosphere of the school, show a much greater propor-
'tionate improvementin 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 spec-
iic aim, the social contact, the kindly criticism, and the
tnoral 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.
APPARATUS.
The Physical Laboratory contains a complete set of appa-
Satus of about one hundred and forty pieces for the illustration
of the properties of matter, and the principles of dynamics,
simple machines, liquids, pneumatics, magnetism, frictional
'electricity, thermo-electricity, sound, heat and light.
The Chemical Laboratory contains apparatus and chemi-
cals for work in analysis and demonstrations in the study of
that science, and for such analysis of soils, fertilizers, etc., as
qnay be incidental to the agricultural experimentation on the
.farmn.
The course in Physics and Chemistry embraces, besides
-recitations from the text-book, experiments by the instructor,
and, as far as possible, by the students, thus' fixing indelibly
-on their minds the principles taught as well as developing
their powers of observation to a wonderful degree.

students are required to participate.
LITERARY SOCIETY.
" THE LYCEUM," is an active organization of the students,
of both sexes, connected with the institution. Its meetings,
lel:l weekly, are full of interest and offer excellent oppor-
tunities for literary endeavor. It is officered and controlled
entirely by students. Public exercises are given from time
to time.
LIBRARY.
An excellent library has been formed, quite a number of
valuable books having been contributed to the school by its





23
friends, of purchased through a special fund set aside for that
purpose. These works, both for reference and general read-
ing, are free for the use of students. A number of choice
periodicals are regularly received and placed at the disposal
of members of the school.
EXAMINATIONS.
At the close of each term, the classes are examined in the
studies of that term; and at the end of tile session there are
general examinations in both departments. Every recitation
and examination.is marked, and a record kept by the Faculty
of the attainments of each student. Information concerning
his progress and deportment is, when requested, communi-
cated to the parent or guardian.
REGOULATIONS.
The regulations of the school are few and simple, appeal-
ing to the student's self-respect and personal responsibility;
but all students will be required to pledge, before admission,
unqualified submission to those regulations enforced.
Students from abroad will be required to abstain from all
social or public gatherings held at night, except by express
permission of the President; and to spend their evenings in
their rooms in study-Friday evening excepted, when they
may, to such an extent as will not interfere with the prosecu-
tion of the work for which they are here, participate in social
and other innocent recreations, with the knowledge and con-
sent of the President.
All idling on the streets, or around places of public or
questionable character, is strictly prohibited.
The student in each department pursues his studies in
his private room, and meets with his class for recitation and
general exercises in- the school room. No arrangement is
made for those who have not sufficient maturity and self-
control to study under these conditions.

Suggestions.
Students arriving from abroad are advised to notify the
school authorities of the date and schedule time of their ar-
rival that the wagon may meet them to convey their luggage,
free of charge, to the i:olleg;. In case they arrive without
having given such notification, they can easily walk to the
institution, as the buildings are within plain sight of the
depot. Their baggage can then be sent for.
Some of the leading railroads in the state have kindly
offered, as an incentive to regular attendance, to all students
who shall spend the entire term in school, to transport them
home at the close of the school year free of charge, upon
certificate of the President or Secretary that such students
paid full fare over those roads, coming to the school. It is
therefore suggested that all students who expect to 'avail
themselves of this generous offer should pay full fare coming
to Tallahassee.
Every student should bring what text books he may
already have touching the ground he expects to cover during
the year. These books need not be of the exact kind men-
tioned in the curriculum. They will prove 'useful for ref-
erence.
Each student should own a small standard dictionary.
(Webster's preferred).
All text books required in the regular course of study can
be secured at the Tallahassee book stores at the regular mar-
ket prices.
Students should be provided with such plain, substantial
clothing as may be necessary for cleanliness and health, but
they are advised against extravagance or display in matters
of dress. Neatness, not gaudd and glitter," should be the
standard.
Young ladies should, come provided with overshoes and
waterproofs.
Parents and guardians are advised, in making remittances





25
to students, to send money by money order or registered let-
ter direct to the Secretary. All such remittances will be re-
ceipted for by the Secretary immediately. He will not be re-
sponsible for money sent unregistered by ordinary course of
mail.
Students bringing money above their immediate needs to
the school are advised to deposit it with the Faculty, or in
one of the city banks. '
Board must be paid monthly, in advance.
All non-resident students must board at the school, unless
specially excused by the President.
