rather than age. Arithmetic and numbers
will not be taught to any extent, in the
first years, but stress will be laid on
languages, literature and the subjects

emotional faculties rather than by at
tempting to labor on the reasoning capa

The students will be cacefully selected
with a view of choosing only those whose
parents are permanent residents of the
city, making the continuance of the pu
pils In the grades reasonably cerUia.
