ORGANIZATION.
The College as reorganized, consists of a Literary, an
Industrial, and a Musical Department. :
LITERARY D-EP-A R T ENT.
The Literary Department comprises the Academic,
Preparatory and Normal Courses.
THE ACADEMIC COURSE, is composed of three divis-
ions, to be known as the First, Second and Third Years.
;:, :To-be entitled to admission to this department ap-
plicants should have a knowledge of arithletic, 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 heaitl.
This course covers a period of three years, and is designed
only for those whose i)revious opportunities may have
7 been limited, or whose acquirements may prove, in the
prelilninary examination, to be superficial.
THE PRIEPARATORY C( !RSE is composed of two di-
visions, to be know.n. as the Junior and Senior Years. It
is intermediate' between tle Academic and Normal
Courses, and is designed for those who Ihave completed
the Academic Course satisfactorily, or who have passed

S. m':?.'*':i $ oMar COURSE covers a period of two years.,
I'' is d department applicants must be sixteen years
je, 3:u'k, roughly grounded in all the common school
!r ches )sf study, and pass an examination in all the in- -
' diate studies of the Academic and Preparatory
I,:Gotqses, and possess the requisite moral and physical '
qualifications. -Graduates from this course will receive
;i-S::..lar diplomas and the degree of Licentiate of Instruc-
ttion. No student will be allowed to graduate without
taking the full two yeai' course. By act of the Legisla-
ture of 1895 diplomas from this school are made first-
grade certificates, good in any county in the State.
DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL S'IENCE.
::.: Special attention is given to instruction in the nat-
. -urt. sciences. The services oqi accolmpllised physicist
!jVate been secured, ahd investigation i this rapidly- .I r
,W^idening field of human research is made a specialty.
W -:ith a well-equipped laboratory at command and the -
skillful guidance of a specialist, students have exceptional
advantages. A series of lectures on scientific subjects
forms a part of this course.
MUSICAL COQUSE.
The Musical department, both vocal and instrumen-
tal, is under the care of a thoroughly practical and. suc-
cessful teacher, a graduate from England, trained in 'the
Queen's private chapel, St. James, in London. Pupils
.may receive a partial or full course, the latter of which
coversvers a period of four years and embraces instruction in
L Borough Bass, Harmony, Orchestration and Composi-
tfso'. Certificates and diplomas will be given to gradu-

ates only.. Candidates for the partial, or short course cer-
tificates, 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.
The College Orchestra, under the Director of Music,
affords to members of this department a fine opportunity
for orchestral practice.
INDUSTRIAL COURSE.
This course comprises at present the, Mechanical,
Agricultural and Dairy departments. In October, 1895,
a cooking and sewing department for girls, will be added.
THE MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT.
This department is under the control of a thoroughly
educated and skilled mechanic and an experienced
teacher. The course of study and practice covers a period
of fiVe years. All graduates from the full course will re-
ceive the degree of, M. E. The training includes exer-
cises in carpentry, cabinet-making, wood-turning, pattern-
making, moulding, casting, forging, brazing, soldering,
tempering, chipping, filing and general machine shop
work. The course also embraces a number of finished
articles. Instruction is given in the proper care of steam
engines and boilers, and in mechanical drawing through-
out the whole course.
The equipment of this department is as follows:.
1 10-horse power horizontal engine and boiler.
1 Circular saw.
1 Band saw.

i' AGRICULTURAL DEPARTMENT.
-, The Department of Agriculture is comprehensive in
Ats scope, embracing the culture of all the semi-tropical
id -crops, gardening, fruit-growing, dairy husbandry,
f.a:.igg of live stock, poultry and drainage.
;. : ..This department, in all its branches, is under the im-
.t^^dia te supervision and direction of the Professor of Ag-
' culture, and affords the bestfacilities to illustrate by ac-
: t:al practice the theories taught in the lass-room. Ag-
ricultuie, 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 then taken to the field, where
- the practical applications of the scientific principles taught
are demonstrated.
Farm labor is intended as educational,'not only- i
teaching the student how to work, but in broadening lin
, :understanding and making him familiar with 'the various
:duatrial operation of the institution.
-w::,:;As' a' means of illustration, corn, cotton, oats, rye,
^ugar. cane, potatoes (Irish ard sweet), tobacco, melons,
pitfders, chufas, sorghum, field peas, foragejplants and va-

rious grasses are grown upon the farm. The students are
brought into immediate contact with the live stock in at-
tending to the milking and the care and keep of the ani-
mals. For the purpose of illustrating differences between.
the breeds of cattle, thoroughbred Jerseys, Jersey grades
and native cows are kept on. the farm. The students be-
come familiar with all these, and to them is entrusted 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 na-
-ie. la s is daily noticeable.
'A fltand complete outfit of farm machinery and
implements is provided on the place, including a steam
engine, ensilage cutter, manure spreader, mower, tedder,
.horse rake. harrows, sulky plow, two-horse plows, and all
the one-horse plows and farming tools necessary for prac-
tical- 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. Seo
ries of. experiments are. conducted with composts, and com-
petitive experiments are made to ascertain the most eco-
nomical 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 complete de
velopment.
DAIRY DEPARTMENT.
'Special 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, cream, butter andl cheese, and the practi-





zai s- thods-.of dairy work in different sections of the
Zi||.'B.'iy: Special facilities are offered the dairy students,
X/ ''ry encouragement is afforded to make them profi-
trihe :t. f dairying~ Those beeosiw .well versed
rse can readily command permanent and profit-
Abeldituartions.
"...' .'. dsmas*t ion is allowed the student for lemu-
w- 'am Wke. done on the farm or in. the Mech'wila
i'- iiai A limited number of industrious and faithful stu-
:"'" itkatre thus afforded an opportunity of paying a part of
expenses in addition to the benefits derived from the
n'"anual training, but all students will be expected to give
- & certain amount of work to the institution in return for
the many rare facilities afforded.
^,:;, Industrial training for young ladies is a growing
ture. in the, work of the school. The large and beauti-
1 c donmitory hall recently completed for the young la-
ift offer increased facilities in this direction. Dairy-
laundrying, sewing and general housework are being
g, and other branches of female industry will be ad-
1J::i.fi the near future. The school has been exception-
fi foris te in securing the services of a matron of rare
::I. e atiions-a lady of fine culture, ripe experience and
tboroughl devotion to the work. Girls intrusted to her
:J will be sure of careful, conscientious training.
; No student will be allowed to graduate from the lit-.
ff ':: tery course who has neglected the industrial courses.
The services of a skilled. teacher of cooking and sew-
ing will be secured during the present vacation, ad in
Oct., '95, the school will start with a well orgauize"d. '

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
percentage of the young people who are sent out of the
State to be educated locate, when through with their
studies, iin other States, not because of intrinsically supe-
rior advantages but simply from the love of-change inher-
'ent 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 great 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-
erafnce 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 tp be af-
fected 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 per-
sons for the profession of teaching, the literary course' is-.
so arranged as to prepare the student for any of the ordi-





~p!usy pursuits.of life not requiring special training. The
j' itution, therefore, commends itself particularly to such
' th of both sexes as may desire to secure a thor-
Mish education.
a*. T teachers may enter the school at such times
s their, respective school terms will allow, receiving
credit for the time spent in the institution each year and
::tieir diplomas and degrees when the two full years
ji.red. by the 'regulations shall have been spent in the
I and the necessary examinations passed. Students
urged, however, to enter at the beginning of the ses-
sion, as loss of time places them at a serious disadvantage
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
unconstitutional provision (see Article XII, Section
_-a.id, by legislative enactment (see Laws of Florida,
3692), it was located at Tallahassee, with an
.-an.ual appropriation of $4,000.)( made for its mainte-
gt of $'-4,000 0
: yi;'". :Fy action of the State Board of Education, it was
'Arted October 5, 1887, in charge of T. 'DeS. Tucker,
-Principal, and T. V. Gibbs, Asst-Principal, with an
4ittendance of fifteen pupils; who had succeeded in pass-
?:ing the preliminary examination.
In 1891, the school having outgrown its acconmmo-
dations in the city, was moved 6ut to Highwood,: in the:
suburbs of Tallahassee, where, on a large awln hiitoric
station of over a hundred acres, ,the State has made
sive preparations to accommodate all who may come.
mber of teachers has been largely increased and
:-,?'equipmnent and facilities made among the best in the
~.Y. X,, : : ~ .

SUPPORT.
Thlle College is supported by annual appropriations
from the Federal and State Governments. It was estab-
lished, and prior to 18(1, 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 aim of the institution. The Morrill bill,
enacted into law August 30, 1S890, by Conigress, gaNve to
each State and Territory "the sum of fifteen tllousandl
dollars for the year ending June 30, 1890, and an annual
increase of thel amount of such appropriation thereafter
for ten yeats, by-an additional sum of one thousand dol-
lars 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 actionof Governor Fleming, forlnallv
agreed to by the State Board of Education and the trus-
tees of the Agricultural College at Lake City,'and ratified
by the Legislature at the session of 1891, las been equally
divided between the State Agricultural and Meechanical
'College, for white students, adl the State Normal and In-
dustrial College for colored students. The State continues
its annual appropriations as its share of the support of
the school.
By special consent of the State Superintendeut, at-
tendance at this school will be counted in county exami-
nations the same as attendance at summer normal schools.
LOCATION.- .
a Tallahassee, the seat of the institution, is the capital
oitthe State of 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 thous-
and (3,000) inhabitants, is the cet.er of the finest agricul-
. ,.\ .. ^' -\ ** .. ** '- l





t'nal section of the State, and is notably free from the
? ~vi'e, attractions and dangerous associations of the larger
t .':The community is heartily in sympathy with:the.
in its endeavor to make, the school a'blessing of
ad influence through the State, and co-operates
illfingly m'n every effort to further its interests. Churches
of-tle .Primitive and Missionary Baptist, A. M. E., C. M.
- and Episcopalian denominations, under earnest pas-
;. tors and Sabbath-school superintendents, offer to the
y6:. g such religious training and influences as will
remotete their religious development. Students are re-
quired to attend some church service every Sunday.
Daily morning and evening devotions are conducted
on tlle grounds. Semi-weekly prayer meetings are con-
.ducted by the students themselves. The Sabbath even-
:-' ing meeting is conducted by members of the Faculty in
Rotation.
^';e~The. school site is a magnificent property, with spa-
,mpus shaded lby stately trees, and located within
i ..-rieach of the city,- on a high hill overlooking the
.;7Mr~. : City; while on either side the well-tilled acres of

controlled by the Faculty, a(nd, unless excused by
special permission of tlle President, ALL STUDENTS NOT
RESIDENTS OF TALLAHASSEE WILiL BE REQUIRED TO BOARD
e. AT THE SCHOOL. This is an important mattter to students.
~rit has been found by actual experience that students
.stantly surrounded by the educative atmosphere of
.tfhe:'hool, show a much greater proportionate improve-
i'nt iin 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 specific
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 col-
lege walls. A large dormitory hall for the girls has
been recently erected.
APPARATUS.
The Physical Laboratory contains a complete set of
apparatus of about one hundred and forty pieces for the
illustration of the properties of matter, and principles of
of dynamics, simple machines, liquids, pneumatics, mag-
netism, frictional electricity, thermo-electricity, sound,
heat and light. .
The Chemical Laboratory contains apparatus and
chemicals for work in analysis and demonstrations in the
study of that science, and for such analysis of soils, fer-
tilizers,' etc., as may be incidental to the agricultural ex-
perimentation on the farm.
The course in Physics and Chemistry embraces, be-
sides recitations from, the text-book, experiments by the
instructor, and as far as possible by the students, thus
,fixing indelibly oin their minds the principles taught as'
well as developing their powers of observation to a won-
derful degree.

LIBRARY. .
An excellent library has been formed, quite a num-
ber of valuable books having been contributed to the
school by its friends, or purchased through a special fund
-set aside for that purpose. These works, both for refer-
ence and general reading, are free for the use of students.
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; a.nd at the end of the session
there are general examinations in all 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 de-
portment is, when requested, communicated to the parent
or guardian. Examinations will be held on the Monday'
and Tuesclay preceding the opening of the fall term (Sept.
30 and Oct. 1, 1895), for the benefit of all applicants
who wish to enter the school.
.REGULATION'S.
The regulations of the school are few and simple,
appealing to the student's self-respect and personal re-
sponsibility; but all the 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; aind to spend their
evenings in their rooms in study-Friday evenings ex-
cepted, when they may, to such an extent as will not in-
terfere with the prosecution of the work for which they
are here, participate in social and other innocent recrea-
tion, with the knowledge and consent of the President.





24
,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 arrange-
ment 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 arrival that the wagon may meet them to convey
their luggage, free of charge, to the college. 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,
transportation homeward at the close of the school year
free of charge, upon the 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 gener-
ous offer should pay full fare coming to Tal.lahassee. It
is further suggested that all students, before co'ning to
Tallahassee, write to the'Secretary of the school for a
blank certificate to be signed by the station agent selling
them tickets when coming to school. This is important,
as free transportation will not be given to those at the
end of the term who have no certificates. .
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 mentioned in the curriculum. They will prove
useful for reference.
Each student should own a small standard diction-
ary. (Webster's preferred.) All text books required in





26
the regular course of study can be secured at the Talla-
hassee book stores at the regular market prices.
Students should be provided with such plain, sub-
stantial clothing as may be necessary for cleanliness and
health, but they are advised against extravagance or dis-
play in matters of dress. Neatness, not gaudd aud glit-
ter," should be the standard.
Young ladies should come prepared with overshoes
and waterproofs.
Parents and guardians are advised, in making re-
mittances for students, to send money by money order or
registered letter direct to the Secretary. All such remit-
tances will be receipted for by the Secretary immediately.
He will not be responsible for money sent unregistered
by ordinary course of mail; nor will he be responsible
for money sent to him by parents through students.
Students bringing money above their immediate
needs to the school are advised to deposit it with the Fac-
ulty, or in one of the city banks.
Board must be paid monthly in advance; i. e., the
board bill for each month must be paid before the month
commences. All bills run from the first of the month,
All non-resident students must board at the school,
unless specially excused by the President.
Parents are requested not to send eatables to students
in the domitories, except upon the receipt of the written
permission of the President to the student to receive such
eatables. Any eatables sent in disregard ofthis request
will be used for the students' tables in the dining hall.
