GOMMERCIAL EDUCATION. The commercial department is progressive. We use the famous Ellis system, not an imitation of it. Everything is learned by actually doing it. This college was the first one in Indiana to introduce Actual Business in its commercial course.

This was dono in 1878. Our students are mostly from the farm and village. The expense of our course is about one-half that charged in city colleges, and they give no more than we do. You have many advantages here not found in the city. Why waste your money?

ENGLISH GRAMMAR: No other college does so much in this subject. Every Indiana teacher should study grammar with Professor Rigdon next spring and summer. We have five teachers of grammar and literature.

MUSIG: The School of Music of the C. N. C. is not surpassed in the West. At the head of the Piano Department is Prof. Edward Ebert-Buchheim, formerly instructor in the celebrated Kullak Academy of Berlin. Miss Louise Hughes, Teacher of Voice, has studied three years in Milan, Italy, under the elder Lamperti, and has sung in concerts in London and New York. Prof. Fred Kollmeyer, Bandmaster, is a teacher and director of many years' experience. He plays first violin in the Symphony Orchestra of Indianapolis. Write for terms and further particulars.

LOGATION : Danville is the ideal college town. It is located twenty miles west of Indianapolis on the St. Louis Division of the Big Four R. R. There is not a saloon in the town.

GALENDAR: The Spring Term opens April 2, 1901. The Summer Term opens June 11, 1901.

There will be a fine gathering of teachers in the Tri-State Normal this spring and summer. Two things especially will attract:

(a) Attractions for those who want to get better license and do better teaching.

(b) Attractions for those who want university work with a view to getting credits in some leading university.

(a) For special preparation for teaching: Everything that can be desired in this line will be given, by the best teachers. I have not space to name all these classes. Let me specially recommend the following: Grammar. Two classes, (a) one for teachers who want a wide range of the subjectsuch as will enable them to make a decided hit either in the schoolroom or in the institute. This means a comprehension not of a grammar, but of grammar. In this class you will have a grammarian for teacher, whose methods are copyrighted, and whose ability both as a scholar and teacher is not excelled. A class by the same teacher, which will be made up of those who have not studied grammar, and those who are not already very fair grammarians. (2) A class in English analysis by the same teacher, using his recently copyrighted methods. (3) Arithmetic, four classes-(a) One beginning with the first of Cook and Cropsey. (b) Another using the same book beginning at percentage and going through. (c) Another class using Ray's higher, beginning at percentage and going through. (d) A teachers' class, using no text book. In this class we enjoy freedom. Here is where you will be surprised. This is my class. For years I have longed to be free from books and answers. It is no longer an experiment. When the answer is before us we can guess it out, but in this class we have to know, not guess. This is delightful. In this class no study outside is required. We come fresh into the class for an hour's tussle and it is the liveliest hour of the twenty-four. The enthusiasm is boundless. In this class promise you to give a thorough desire to teach the so-called dry subject. I especially invite you to join Professor Bailey's train

ing class for teachers. Every possible perplexity about the teaching of every grade, and every difficulty about government and school organization are discussed by one who has gone through all this work in the public schools from the lower grades up to the superintendent. From letters I have received about this class, from teachers over all the states, I would say that the work done is intensely practical. I ought to speak in detail of geography, history, physiology, reading circle work, drawing, and so on, but I can not. I say again, that everything will be taught that has to do with teaching, and all by experts.

(b) Attractions for those who would take university works: Already high school teachers are arranging to be here as soon as their schools are out. I just got a letter from principal of high school in one of the large towns of ine state, saying, “I'll be with you in June for summer school, and will stay all next year to get classical course finished, with a view to finishing in Chicago university. My superintendent has given me a year's leave of absence.”

Physical Attractions.-Our county is covered with fine lakes, about 100 in all. Angola is beautifully shaded and every way clean. (No saloons in the county or town.) Students are admitted into the best homes. I'd say, write early for a home. We shall be crowded, but if you let me know we will find you a good place. Board, furnished room and tuition $2.85 per week. No halls. All are homed in families.

Spring school of 10 weeks opens April 2. Summer school of 10 weeks opens June 11. You can enter any week in the term. Need not wait for beginning of term. We have fine musical, business and law schools. Chas. D. Nason, Ph. D., of University of Pa., has general charge of pedagogical department.

Come and we promise the best summer of your life and a most delightful time. Ask for catalogue. L. M. SNIFF, A. M., President,

Angola, Indiana.



Indiana University

At the November meeting of the Board of Trustees of Indiana University the following resolution was passed :

WHEREAS, It is desirable that admission and attendance be absolutely free to the people of the state, therefore be it

RESOLVED, That from and after January 1, 1901, all contingent fees be abolished except in the School of Law, provided, however, that this resolution shall not be construed to do away with a reasonable charge for the use of the gymnasiums, library, and equipments and supplies of the laboratories.”

A second edition of the Illustrated Announcement of the University was issued November 1. The announcement of the Spring and Summer terms will be issued about February 1.
