Captain Pratt, who is in charge
of the training school for Indian
youths at Carlisle, Pa., tells of an
Indian lad-18 years old, who ap­
peared at the school a few weeks
ago, having found his «way across
the Continent in search of an edu­
cation. He had 32.75 on starting
from his home. That brought him
across the Mississippi river. Then
by walking four days together and
getting an occasional ride on a
freight train, he made the rest of
the long journey. He sold his
/Indian ornaments for 32.25 to give
him bread on the way. Coming
over the Allegheny mountain range
the Indian’s worn-out moccasins
were no' protection to his feet
against the snow, and he bartered
his blanket for a pair of shoes. At
last he reached the Carlisle school
and was taken in and cared for.—

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 becUrianfcm are
carefully avoided. We ignore all religions or political divisions, and encourage great freedom of
thought, and aim to stand on that high plane where Protesiant or Catholic, 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 tne 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 pTeler 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 nglish L anguage and L iterature .—A ready command of our own tongue, with an ac­
curate knowledge of its history and authors, is one Of 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 cimnoks .—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. Humcient time is allowed for a comprehensive understanding of the gieat principles
of^tach science.
A ncient L anguages .—By pursuing the beet methods, the progress in acquiring a knowledge
of the Qeeek 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 road, and to give mure
time for the pursuit of the course in English and the Sciences. Experience has demonstrated
that both better linguists and scientists result from this course.
B iblical L iterature and E xegesis .— This department was organized iu Christian College
for tho first time with the opening of tho present session. The object is to study the Sacred
Hcriptures analyticallv 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. The interest of the church is carefully considered iu
this, whilo all other departments are wholly free from any religious discussions, except the uni­
formly recognized principles of Christian morality.
Every facility is hero afforded for fitting voung persons to successfully carry on any kind of
business. The best authors are studied ou the various subjects, and such practical tests are
made as will insure thoroughness on the part of the student.
