Manhattan College.—The object of this Institution is to afford students the means of acquiring the highest grade of university education, by combining the advantages of the college and of the polytechnic Bchool. The plan of studies embraces a thorough course of humanities, and both the higher mathematics and the natural sciences receive more attention than is usually bestowed on them in literary institutions.

Care is taken that every branch prescribed be thorougly studied, and that nothing be learned merely by rote. With this view the students discuss the subject-matter of each lesson in class, independently of the language of the text-book, criticise one another's performances, and give free expressions to their opinions on all points open to debate. They thus accumulate ideas instead of mere words, they digest what they learn, and acquire thoughtfulness, self-reliance, and facility of expression.

A commercial department has been formed for the benefit of young men who cannot command the necessary time to pursue the whole course, either in the Classic or the Scientific Department. To those attaining such proficiency in this course as will enable tin-in to undergo a thorough examination, certificates of competency are given as a guarantee of their fitness to engage in mercantile pursuits.

As the college is conducted by the Christian Brothers, it is presumed that they need hardly assure the public that the utmost attention is bestowed on the moral and religious training of all committed to their care. Course Op Studies. Collegiate Department.

Model Kindergarten, Intermediate Class, Advanced Class, and Seminary for the Training of Kindergartners. Prof. John Kraus, Mi's. Maria Kraus-borltb, Principals.

The Model Kindergarten, and the Intermediate and Advanced Classes, will re-open October 1st, 1878, and close on the 2nd of June, 1879. The Seminary for the Training of Kindergartners will re-open November 1st, 1878, and close at the end of June, 1879.

A Mothers Glass for Nursery Management will be held during the winter as usuat.

The Kindergarten proper comprises three Divisions and the Elementary Department three Classes. These Divisions and Classes are arranged, according to the ages of the children, as follows:

Kindergarten. Third Division, for children from 3 to 4 years old. Second Division, for children from 4 to 5 years old. First Division, for children from 6 to 6 years old.

Elementary Department. Intermediate Class, for children from 6 to 7 years old. Advanced Class, for children from 7 to 8 years old. Elementary Class, for children from 8 to 10 years old.

Elementary instruction in German and French will be given; Singing, Drawing, and Gymnastics will also be taught. Arrangements can likewise be made, if desired, for class-instruction on the Piano.

It is, strangely enough, a very general Impression that the Kindergarten is a school. This idea is, however, entirely erroneous; for the Kindergarten and the School nave different objects in view, and are conducted according to different methods. It cannot be too often repeated that the most essential part of the whole Kindergarten system is the methodical arrangement of the exercises and the games, and the explanations given by Froebel to those who are to conduct them. To become acquainted with them all is a study; to apply them well, an art; to understand their significance, their effect, and the order and manner in which they should be given to the children, is a science. Nothing but a long and careful study of the system and its actual workings can give such a knowledge of it, as will

New York.

enable a person to practice its peculiar mode of instruction or to fully understand its many important points.

While the Kindergarten will afford the child, previous to its entering the school, the right occupation and requisite training for a course of regular instruction, the Intermediate and Advanced Classes will be taught according to Froebel's method, his ideas being more fully developed and more completely realized. "First the blade, then the ear, then the corn in the ear."

Prof. John Kraus is a disciple of the PestalozziDiesterwcg-Froebel School, and one of the first propagators of the Kindergarten in this country. For many years he was connected with the Bureau of Education in Washington, where his efforts were unceasingly devoted to the kindergarten cause. Says the U. 8Commissioner of Education: "Prof. John Kraus, whose devotion and enthusiasm on the subject of Kindergartens is well known among all educators interested in that topic, will also in New York do his utmost in the same direction."

Mrs. Maria Kkauk-boelte is a pupil and a coworker of Froebel's widow. She is aided by an experience of twenty years in Germany, England, and America. "Mrs. Kraus-boelte has been pointed out to me by Mrs. Louise Froebel (Froebel's Widow) inHamburg, as the best Kindergartner in Germany," says Dr. Nathan Allen in the New England Journal of Education.

As to her work in America, The Galaxy, in an article on "Kindergartens," says: "Mrs. Kraus-boeltk, of all American Kindergartners, holds the hiehest place. She comes to ns most directly from the founder of the system. It is to the labors of this lady, more than to any other perhaps, that the increasing snecess of Kindergartening in America is due, and her pupils have accomplished more than all the rest The reason is simple, they are the most thorough; the reason of that again equally simple, their teacher was the most thorough."

Says Miss E. P. Peapody: "Mrs. Kraus is the first authority upon the subject, unsurpassed certainly by any one in her knowledge of Froebel's principles (according to the testimony of his widow with whom she has studied for three years); she has twenty years of great success in practice. Without referring to her previous eminent success in England and Germany, the Kindergarten in New York is sufficient recommendation of whatever Mrs. Kraus writes, especially upon the training of Kindergartncrs."

Speaking of Mrs. KRArs' work in America the Northern Christian Advocate Bays: "Here, as elsewhere, her mission is to plant and nonrish the Kindergarten in its purity, in the profound simplicity and consummate art of nature. The perfectly plain and unpretending establishment of Mr. and Mrs. Kraus impressed us as a commentary at once on their intolerance of show and on their exalted repute, emphasizing the genuineness of both. Such a repute entirely unassisted by the expensive style and exclusive location, which satisfy the demands of society, must of necessity by wholly made up of sterling substance." Says The World: "There may perhaps seldom an institute be found where the beneficial influence upon children by female and male co-operation is more felt than by Mr. and Mrs. Kraus; their congeniality, their perfect sympathy and harmony can be seen and felt everywhere. They both are born Kindergartners and that is also what gives the preference to their 'Kindergarten Guide,' everything is not only seen through female but also through male lenses in an educational point of view." "The Authors," says the New England Journal of Education, "are the most experienced Kindergartners in America and are recognized as the best authority iu this country on Kindergarten education." Says Mrs. Horace Mann: "I am indeed delighted with the minutenessl thoroughness, and clearness of direction it is certainly by far in advance of any Guide I have yet Been." Nevr York.

"The excellent Kindergarten (iuide of Mr. and Mrs. Kbaus is the best that has yet been published," says the Baroness Makknhoi.z-bmi.ow.

The Kindergarten of Mr. and Mrs. Kraus is situated in Twenty-Eighth Street, between Fifth Avenue and Broadway.
