At the great Centennial exibition,
a statue stood in Memorial Hall
that the sculptor hail made to seem
an almost sentient thing. Every
Btroke of the chisel had helped to
bring out the idea embodied in the
question, " what is in the future for
The statue attracted a large share
. of attention, and each day, as I was
drawn irresistibly to the spot, I
found a crowd looking upon the
earnest, asking face.
I decided to visit very early, in
order to avoid this crowd, and, one
morning, I found to my satisfaction
that I was among its first visitors.
A gentleman stood close to it, and,
as he turned to his catalogue, he
1 i said, half to himself, and half to
those around him, “ And to-mor-
i row ?” At his elbow there was a
clear-eyed. buxom..*woman, intent
upon what was a business form ot'
pleasure. She, also, was looking at
the statue, and when the man who,
trying to see to the farthest limit
and get at the fullest meaning, re­
peated the name of the statue, she
answered as if she had been person­
ally addressed,
“ Why ’ borrerin’ trouble, like I”
Her positive, practical tones rang
out loudly, and were *in harmony
with her face and. manner; and all
* was in such contrast to the statue
and refinement of the gentleman,
that it became to me one of the im­
pressions of the exTbition.
This little memory has held to
me a strange touch of humor and
pathos, and I have treasured it also
as a symbol—and in the presence
; of our dying year I bring it forth.

R. R. passes through Independence, two miles away, and the steamers plyiug the Willamette
land there also ; making Monmontli one of the most easy towns of access in the Btate. Parents
who desire to place tliqir children under good educational advantages, where tliev shall be freo
from the intemperance and immorality p-evalent in the larger towns, will find in Monmouth
just what they aesire in these respects. It is a school town, built up tor this purpose, and all
other interests center in this one. Hence its superiority for educational purposes.
Tha Faculty is the moat important element to the successful working of anv institution of
learning. The Btard of Trus'ees have sought to put in the various chairs of Christian College
men of marked ability, of established success in tneir respective department»., and who are juBt
in the maturity of life. At the hands of these meu they expect to see Christian College among
the most honored institutions of the land.
B uilding ,—Only one wing of the new brick College building has lieen completed, and this
is being remdd®Ied"SIRrgreatly improved this year. It Contains three working siories of .large,
airy and well lighted rooms, used lor study and recitation. The old College, building adjoining
has been thoroughly overhauled and converted into a pleasant and commodious chapel.
Apparatus sufficient for ordinary- purposes of Illustration, is now provided, and additions will
be made from time to time. The Library contains a few volumes ot interest, and new vqlumes
of value will be added as fast as the means at our command will allow.
The features of Christian College to which we especially invite attention, as distinctive of our
work are as follows:
C hristian M orai . itw —The Bible is read every day and lectures calculated to impress its
morality are given, and with the Bible as a basis, ’ the effort to impress the highest Christian
morality as thekuiding principle in the lives of our students. Dogmatism and Hect*rianism are
carefully avoided. We ignore all religious or political divisions, and eucourage great freedom of
thought, and aim to stand on that high plane where Protestant or Catholic, Democrat or Re­
publican, can meet on one common level.
P racticai . E ducation —The great demand of the times is for men of action. An institution
of learning to meet the needs of the people, should not only impart instruction, but along with
the knowledge gsined, give students the power to use it to advantage for themselves and others.
The idea of Christian College is, that the finest mental culture and the greatest benefit may
be obtained by the study of those things that will fit young men and women to at ouce enter
some pursuit or business, and carry it forward siuwessfully. Instead of those branches that are
simply ornamental, we prefer those that are useful, and we invite comparison and criticism on
our work. Our aim is to graduate young men and women so that they may at once enter upon
the pursuits of life.
-M athematics .—The Course of Study in this department is very full. The various branches
are taught from a practical standpoint, with a view to the application of each principal to such
affairs as people meet with in life and desire to understand.
E nolihh language and L iterature .—A ready command of our own tongue, with an ac­
curate knowledge of its history and authors, is one ot the most important acquisitions. No other
accomplishment can supply the want of this. It can only be acquired by a thorough study of
English. In Christian College the course of English extends through four years and we consider
this one of our most valuable features"™----- --------- --------------- ~~~
B ciknoes .—The rapid advance made in the various departments of Science and the rapid
succession of discoveries of new principles and applications, constitute one of the wonders of the
age. No man can claim to be educated who is not conversant with the present advanced stage
of Science. Very thorough work is made of all these, assisted by the use of the apparatus at our
command. Sufficient time is allowed tor a comprehensive understanding of the great principles
of each science.
, .
A ncient L anguages .—By pursuing the best methods, the progress in acquiring a knowledge
of the Geeek and Latin languages, is rapid. We have dropped several authors that are frequent­
ly read in Colleges, with a view to doing better work iu those that are road, and to give more
time for the pursuit of the course in English and the tciences. Experience has demonstrated
tliat both better linguists and scientists result from this comae.
B iblical L iterature and E xegesis .— This department was organized in Christian College
for the first time with the opening of the present session The object is to study the Sacred
Scriptures analytically and critically, with contemporaneous profane history, and evidences of
Christianity. Methods of sermonizing, pulpit oratory, methods in revival meetings and the care
of churches, are all carefully.investigated. It is this department that the Christian brotherhood,
as a body, are particularly Interested in,. Tlfe interfat of the church is carefully considered in
