TEACHERS' COURSE.—We have planned our courses for this year to meet the needs of those who come to us from year to year, and we have used the experience of every former year to make this the best year of our history. Last year we did more for teachers of the common schools than ever before, and while not neglecting any other department of work, we intend to do even more for these teachers this year than was done last year. There will be an increase of courses offered for teachers, courses likely to fall in exactly with the lines of work on which they may be expected to be preparing.

To accomplish our purposes in this direction an additional instructor has been added to our already large and able faculty, an instructor in Mathematics and English. While the new courses thus offered will not be restricted to any class, it is expected that the new instructor will be of special service to the public school teachers of our section.

We are furnishing at Mountain Lake Park opportunities of the very highest value to teachers, who work for the most part away from stimulating and inspiring conditions: and our growing patronage with teachers shows that this fact is being recognized by the teachers themselves.

COLLEGE PREPARATORY.—Another class for which we are making preparation is that large and ever-growing class of young people preparing for college. We do not propose to fit anyone for college in a summer, nor do we deem it likely that anyone will fit for college at the summer school alone. Our proposal is a more modest one, therefore, a more reasonable one. Many young people are a little short in their preparatory work and are without competent instruction at home, or need to go to some healthful resort at which they can work with safety, even during the summer months. To all such we offer just what they need; the members of our staff of instruction are all experienced in the work of colleges, probably without exception, have prepared men for college; the Park cannot be excelled as a place to work during the summer months, for even when the heat is oppressive at sea-level it is comfortable on top of the Alleghenies. By availing themselves of these favorable conditions, many young people are enabled to go back to school in September fully up with the class, which for some reason had gotten ahead. Skilled instruction is at hand on any of the work leading to the door of the college.
