liut there is auothci class of shirkers
from rliuloriutil work. These include all
those students who Imvu little taste for lit
crary work, and consequently have -little
incentive to excel in writing tlioir essa.vs.
Tho work being disagreeable to thorn,
they shirk it If t hoy ran, and if they oim
not, they do it hurriedly and carelessly,
their object being only to got the work off
their hands. Both the above named clas
ses of students do themselves injury in
thus evadingorslightinglhissortof work.
In order that our rhetorical work may bo
profitable to us, wo must interest ourselves
in it;writeour productions carefully and
expressly for rhetorical purposes, and note
carefully the corrections and suggestions
made by the Professor. Mo may bo exact,
and sometimes wo may think him over
particular, but if we receive his sugges
tions and criticisms in a friendly spirit,
we may be moie profited from the fact of
his being particular, inasmuch as we our
selves will be taught to be exact and par
ticular in our work.

Those having charge of the school are de
sirousof obtaining as students, nil who
may wish to study the above mimed sub
jects of natural science and obtain a prac
tical knowledge of them by studying in
the field. Good facilities are allbrdrd for
study and practical investigation. Fine
roads, proximity to settlements, good sup-
plies of water, fuel, togothor with a field
tilled with objects replete with interest to
tho geologist, botanist, zoologist and min
eralogist, makes the rout chosen une
quiilcd in the Stale, .lust enough is
known of the geological rooources of this
State to make us greedy to know more,
and should this Summer School of Sci
ence accomplish what it aims to do, it
must add largely to our stock 01' knowl
edgi' in this direction. Already a num
ber have expressed a determination to on.
