A little girl, whom we know,
me in her night clothes very ear-
to her mother one morning, say-
“ Which is worst, mamma, to tell
lie, or steal ?”
The mother, taken by surprise,
plied that both were so bad she
uldn’t tell, which was the worst.

T he I ndependent needs only to be bettor
known to add to its already large list of friends.
It lia« been published for thirty-live years and
has acquired a world-wide reputation as the
religious and literary newspaper.
T he I ndependent is not denominational.
Ils crood and field are broader than any sect.
As a Christian journal, its aim is to strengthen
and extend Evangelical religion and to defend
it against the attacks of Materialism, Atheism,
and nntelief. It ia free to approve or criticise
in any of ihe denominations whether it believes
is designed to advance or hinder the progress of
the Gospel of Christ.
In civil and political affairs T he I ndepen ­
dent will contend for sound ideas and princi­
ples. It fought against slavery and the iniqui­
tous system of the Oneida Community. It is
now fighting against Mormonism, It believes
in the reform of the civil service and tariff, in
the purification of politics and in cheaper post­
age, and will maintain those principles which
the highest ethics and best intelligence require.
T hr .I ndependent is designed to suit all
tastes and wants. We provide weekly stories
by the best magazine writers, poems by the
leading poets of America and England (we first
published in America Tennyson’s last poem),
and for others, who 100k especially for instruc­
tion, whether in religious, literary,educational,
philosophical, or scientific articles, we furnish

Monmouth, the seat of Christian College, is a village of about 400 inhabitants, noted tor
their morality and devotion to the cause of education. The Oregonian Railway pass®« through
the middle of the town, giving daily connection with Portland, and affording the means tor uasv

The Faculty is the most important element to the successful working of any institution of
learning. The B aid of f'rus'<«-H have sought to put in the various chairs of Chrir iuu Colligo
men of marked ability, of established success in their respective departments, and who are Just
iu the maturity of life. At tbc..hands of these mon they expect to tea Christian College among
the most honored institutions of the laDd.
B uilding .—Only one wing of the new brick College building has been completed, and this
is being remodeled and greatly improved this year. It contains three working s ories of large,
airy and well lighted room*, 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 volumes
of value will be added as fast as tho 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 orality .—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 the guiding principle in the lives of our students. Dogmatism and bectarianism are
carefully ayoided. We ignore all religious or political divisions, and encourage great freedom of
thought, ami aim to stand on that high plane where Protestant or I atholic, Democrat or Re­
publican, can meet on one common level.
P ractical 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 gained, 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 once enter
some pursuit or business, and carry it forward successfully. 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 lite.

M athematics .—The Course of Study in thia department in 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.

'vuialb kUUWlWlgfi 6! Its liistory and authors, ia one oi the most important acquisitions. No other .
accomplishment can supplv ihe want of this. It can only be acquired by a thorough study of
English. In Christian College the course of English extends through four rears and we consider
this one of our most valuable features.
S ciences .— The rapid advanoe made in the various departments of Science and the rapid
succession of discoveries of new principles and applications, constitute one of the winders of the
age. Ro man can claim to lie educated who is not conversant with the present adv.auced stage
of Science. Very thorough work >s made of all these, assisted by the use of the apparatus at our
command. Sufficient time is allowed for a comprehensive understanding of the great principles
of each science.
A ncient L anguages .—By pursuing the best methods, the progress in a-quiring 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 in those that are read, and to give more
time for the pursuit of the course in English and . the Sciences, Experience has demonstrated
that both better linguists and scientists result from UiiR course.

Scriptures analytically and critically, with contemporaneous profane history', and evidences of
CHnstiamty. Methods of sermonizing, pulpit oratory, methods in revival meetings and the caro
of churches, are all carefully investigated. It is this department that the Christian brotherhood,
as a body, are particularly interested in. The interest of the church is carefully considered in
this, while all other departments are wholly free from any religious discussions, except the uni­
formly recognized principles of Christian morality.
