J)ropplng the usual language of advertisemcnts we invito attention to a few plain facta concerning this Institution. It in a large and thoroughly equipped Seminary for both sexes. Established In I860. Property free from debt, $103,000. Sufficient endowment to give student* all the conveniences of a pleasant home and the instruction of competent teachers at a moderate cost. New Boarding Hall, with steam heat, etc, erected in 1873 at a cost of $45,000. Excellent board and home-like arrangements throughout. The Principal and other teachers board with the students, and give especial attention to their health, comfort, manners, and morals.

A. W«sw Departuro i« now Proposed.

Being convinced that hundreds of our young people are prevented from attending school by the stringency of the times, we have decided to reduce the expenses to rates which could not be afforded, were the Institution not endowed, and did wo not expect that a large number would avail themselves of these favorable terms.
