Ebwign uf the Qtiguul
The design of the School is to offer such fhorougli insimcfioifi in
the prominent and important branches of a liberal education as will
enable the students to enter the higher classes of our Universities.
The success which those pupils have Won who have attended the
University of Virginia, the Washiiigtoii and Lee, University of Penn-
sylvania, University of Michigan, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Amherst,
Columbia, Purdue, LaFayette, Tulane, Denison, Texas, Cornell, or
Lehigh University, or Troy Polytechnic, or received appointments at
Annapolis or West Point, gives, assurance of the character of this pre-
paration. Recognizing, however, the demand for a course of study for
a large class of boys Whose opportunities of education will and must
be limited to the Academy, a course of study has been adopted which is
intended to fully meet this demand, and which is believed to be sur-
passed by no other school in the South.
The aim of the Academy authorities is, by forbearance and gentle-
ness, to develop cultivated, Christian gentlemen, but no boy who is
found to exert an evil ini-luence in the Academy, who derives no good
himself, and whose example is pernicious, will be retained.
In the government of the Academy it is aimed to teach the cadets
to be frank and manly, and to encourage such deportment on the part
of each cadet as will justify his receiving the largest degree of liberty
consistent with proper regulations and discipline.. At the same time
the Military Department of the Academy secures a close supervision
of health, habits, deportment, and manners generally. The system is
firm and strict Without being harsh or severe. No cadet is punished
for any offence until he has opportunity to make an explanation.
Every second month a report of his standing in deportment, at-
tendance and scholarship is sent to his parents or guardian.
VIEW OF ACADEMY LOOKING SOUTHEAST
"Education turns the wild sweetbrier into the queenly rose."
We aim by continued correspondence and frank and unreserved
letters to parents concerning their boys to let them know just what
their sons are doing at the Academy, and earnestly ask the aid of
parents through their correspondence with their sons to assist us in
stimulating the boys' ambition and arousing their pride and enthusiasm
in and for their work. We have in the past received great help
through the kind cooperation of parents. A
The standards and tone of the Academy are high. For the past
forty-eight years the Academy has been conducted upon the highest
moral plane under the same management. To illustrate: Last session,
we had many cadets who made a profession of religion, most of
them straightway joining the church of their choice, under our advice.
This condition obtaining and this influence in a school can not help,
as Will be readily recognized by any fair-minded parent, keeping the
moral tone of the Academy very high, and it is a matter of the greatest
pride and satisfaction to us that every year our boys give this tangible
evidence of the efforts made in their behalf by those who have their
moral and spiritual welfare at heart, as well as their mental and
physical. - K t I
We would most earnestly and respectfully call to the attention of
prospective patrons this high moral atmosphere and Ch1fistian influ-
ence, and emphasize the fact that We are ready at any time to verify
this statement. There is nothing in education if characteff is not con-
sidered, and it is not enough for any .institution to turn out trained
minds, educationally, but its pupils should go forth with high princi-
ples g with a set purpose to do the right for Right's sake, and with the
fear and love of God in their hearts. This can only be expected of
them when they have beenbreathing the atmosphere of a Christian
environment 5 it is folly to expect it from any other source..
1032 is Bing '
I recently received a very artistic catalogue from a Virginia mili-
tary academy, which has had quite a remarkable career due to the high
"Right traiuiug is better than riches."
ideals and great push of the young commandant in charge, on the cover
of which I found these words, "Loves is King." I
Love is the great disciplinarian, the supreme harmonizer, the true
peacemaker. It is the great balmfor--all that blights happiness or breeds
discontent. It is a sovereign' panacea for malice, revenge, and all the
brutal propensities. As cruelty melts before kindness, so the evil
passions find their antidote in sweet charity, and loving sympathy.
The sun encourages and calls out qualities in the tender germ and
young plant which the storm and the frost would destroy. Kindness,
encouragement, praise, will call out of a bad boy or a dull pupil and
stimulate qualities which scolding and rebuffing and repression would
blight and ruin.
Pupils would do anything for a teacher who is always kind and
considerate, but a cross, fractious, nagging teacher so arouses their
antagonism that it often proves a bar to their progress. There must
be no obstructions, no ill feeling between the teacher and the pupil, if
the best results are to be reached. ' -
Love is a healer, a life-giver. All through the Bible are passages
which show the power of love as a health tonic and life strengthener.
"With long life will I satisfy him," said the Psalmist, "because hehath
set his love upon me." i
Many parents are- very much distressed by the waywardness of
their children g but this waywardness is often more imaginary than real.
A large part of their pranks and their mischief is merely the result
of exuberant youthful spirits. They are sowfull of energy, and so
buoyant with life that they can not keep still. Love is the only power
that will control them.

wut Gtuturial System
We would call attention to our system of teaching: We divide
our cadets into the smallest practicable classes, engaging an 'ample
number of masters for this purpose. This has many advantages to the
individual boy, and is distinctly at fvariauce with the custom obtaining
HC-1Z'llCi'7'61L are the fewels of God. Let us be sure that we so facet
tlzemi, that they may reflect His iriiagef' ,
in most schools, whether public or private. This system enables the
teacher to give his eiitire time to cz 'very few boys, hold their attention,
arouse their interest, correct their individual faults, and thus bring
them rapidly forward, which can not be done by any teacher with the
same satisfactory results who is forced to handle a large class, since
individual attention can not be bestowed upon each boy, which is much
to his detriment and greatly retards his rapid advancement.
Parents can not too highly appreciate this feature of a school, as
it is of the most 'vital iiiiportance iii the rapid advaiiceirierzt of their
This has been one of the Academyls leading features for many
years, and the number of boys we have trained and fitted for the Uni-
versities amply attests its value. We have voluntary scholarships from
many of the leading Universities both North and South, solely upon
the records our boys have made when sent to these institutions.
Gur sixteen masters are all University or Military College grad-
uates, and are men of Wide experience in their profession. We have
no man in our corps of instructors who is not making teaching his
profession solely, and who is not in love with his Work. Our teachers
are all high-class, high-salaried men, and men who have demonstrated
their ability to manage and win boys, as well as teach successfully.
WUEHI HUD IKZUMIJIIB Ill15IlZlIEffU11
The duties of the day are begun with reading of the Scriptures
and prayer. -
The utmost care is taken to develop every manly characteristic
and to establish and maintain a high moral tone in the school.
Each cadet is expected to bring with him a copy of the Bible,
and if a member of the Episcopal Church, a prayer-book and hymnal.
On Sundays all cadets are required to attend by Companies, under
their Cadet officers, one of the Protestant churches in the city.

"And in your studies and in your sports in school, and afterwards

this rule-a rule that I once heard preached on the football yield-'d0n't

This rule is absolute.
Members of the Catholic Church may attend services in their own
church under charge of a Cadet Officer, and members of the Hebrew
Church may attend their synagogue in the same manner.
There is a branch of the Young Men's Christian Association con-
ducted by the cadets, under the direction of the Secretary of the Y. M.
C. A. of the State, and a Bible study for cadets is held twice a Week.
Every Sunday afternoon regular Sunday-School services are held,
conducted by the Faculty. Attendance is compulsory.
The most absolute uniformity upon church worship is insisted
upon, and no cadet can hope to escape this duty. A heavy penalty is
prescribed for non-attendance to this duty.
Qipmnasium ann athletics ,
The Gymnasium, which is fifty-one by thirty-five, with sixteen
foot ceiling, is abundantly supplied with excellent and suitable appara-
tus. During the winter months, rainy days, etc., this building is open
to the. sports and exercises of cadets, and permission is never refused
them to this play-ground when off duty. This has been a source of the
greatest pleasure and profit to our boys, and is one of the leading and
best features of the Academy, in our judgment, as it develops the
physical nature and quickens the mind through its healthful exercises.
A regular course of instruction, embodying the physical culture
exercises so widely and properly advocated in all leading magazines,
together with regular exercises in gymnastic and deep-breathing ex-
ercises, is faithfully taught by a trained and experienced instructor
through the winter months, so that our boys keep Well and strong
and are greatly improved and developed by the end of the term. In
the fall and spring daily exercises and sports in the open air are not
only encouraged, but are compulsory.

A master, who is especially qualilied owing to past experiences
and record as a superior athlete, with familiarity with football and
baseball, has charge of this department of the boys' Work, and care-
fully trains and supervises them in all games among themselves and
in their contests with other schools, thus insuring enthusiastic interest
and preventing undue and indiscreet exercises and at the same time
placing a check upon violent or objectionable playing.
Vile have Athletic Grounds for all games, such as football, base-
ball, tennis, basket-ball, etc.
s Boys who have cameras should bring them, as there are many
beautiful views and historic points to be found here.
There is no separation of masters and cadets. They occupy the
same buildings. Each bedroom floor is under the charge of masters
who reside upon it, and are thus easily accessible to the cadets under
their immediate care and supervision. The masters are upon the
grounds of the Academy at all school hours, and associated with the
cadets, seeking to stimulate them both by precept and example to right
conduct and thought.
They eat at the same tables with the cadets, and there is at all
times a very friendly and intimate relation existing between the teach-
ers and cadets. The parlors are always open, with books, piano,
games, and various amusements. I
Mien and manner have much to do with our influence, success,
and reputation in life, and it is for this reason that great pains are
taken that our boys may be instructed in the correct social forms and
usages. Besides constant admonitions to individual boys, little heart-
to-heart talks are given from time to time by the masters. One feature
which aids our boys to polish the rough angles of their bearing, con-

And simple faith than N oifinan blood."
versation, and general deportment, is the dancing lessons. These are
rendered both pleasant and profitable by the presence of a number of
young ladies and girls, who are invited by our dancing teachers, and
who contribute greatly to the advancement of the classes. These
classes are held twice a week, during recreation hours, and are never
allowed to interfere with the more serious duties of the Academy.
wut Beceptiun might
Every Saturday night cadets, who have clean records through the
week, are allowed to invite the young ladies and girls of the neighbor-
hood to the parlors, where they indulge in games, music, and other
amusements, under the supervision of the matron and her assistant.
Since the boys are not allowed to visit at nightiunder any circnin-
stances, it is a recognized program that the girls 'visit thein. These
reception nights have been a source of the greatest pleasure and no
little profit to many of our cadets, and they look forward to the pleas-
ures of the evening. The association, under proper restrictions and
chaperonage, of these young people can only redound, in our judg-
ment, to the advantage of the boy in polish, ,ease and grace g polishing
the rough angles of his awkwardness and giving him that ease and
self-possession when in the presence of the other sex which is most
desirable for any boy who expects to associate with and hold his own
in the company of gentlemen and ladies. A

, parent, a warn with Eau
What do you want for your boy? VVhat would you prefer he had
in greatest degree? May we answer this for you, since we have given
the subject years of study? ls it not character? Is it not character
before wealth? Should it not be the highest aim and ideal of every
parent and every school to stomp upon the young and impressionable
heart of the boy those things which yield brotherly love, integrity, fine
sense of honor, upright and downright Christian principles? ls this
not first 5 with education and wealth secondary? What would it avail
you and me to have our boys turn out money-makers, but with princi-
ples, habits, and reputations of which we should be ashamed? Now,
what is the hrst requisite which shouldbe looked for in arty school? ls
it not moral tohe? Is it not a fatherly and brotherly affection for and
interest in every boy and his character-development? We believe that
you will heartily agree with us that it is. What makes a school? Is
it the buildings? It is the guiding, disciplining, and awakening of the
hearts, consciences, and slumbering manhood, coupled with the high-
est mental and physical development. This is education, as we under-
stand it, and this character-building is the "Diamond that scratches
every other stone."
It is this we strive to ,do here at the Staunton Military Academy,
and for proof of this statement cite the following facts: We have been
in the. business of teaching, training, and disciplining boys as well as
preparing them for all universities and for business for the past forty-
eight years-entering now upon our forty-ninthg we have today the

largest Private School for Boys in the South, the Faculty of the Acad-
emy are University and Military College graduates, men who love
boys and have made teaching their life-work, men of upright habits
and Christian principles and thoroughly alive to the great responsibility
they have assumed.
The Academy is beautifully situated, I,6OO feet above sea-level, in
the beautiful and far-famed Valley of the Shenandoah, the healthful-
ness of our climate, water, and location is proverbial. We havewell-
equipped buildings and ample playgrounds, we have a reputation and
position among the secondary schools of the United States which is
recognized and commended by some of the-noblest men in the countryg
and better than all, we have the earnest, hearty affection, backing, and
"God-speed" of hundreds of parents and alumni all over the land.
We have lmndreds of letters from parents and boys, and have inserted
in this catalogue a few letters from those of recent writing under the
head of "Testimonials" to illustrate what is done here and uphold the

The Academy is situated on one of the most beautiful hills sur-
roundingthe city, 1,600 feet above sea-level. The grounds are hand-
some and afford ample facilities for recreation and amusement. V A
photographic view can give but a feeble and imperfect representation
of the magnificence of the prospect, which captivates by its beauty and
grandeur all who have visited the' School. The presence of some of
the finest female schools of the South offers unusual facilities to par-
ents who have a son and daughter to educate, and who desire them to
be near each other-an advantage which parents have been quick to
se.e and appreciate. ,
The buildings are large and commodious, supplied with gas and
electricity, running spring water, steam by latest approved process,
single iron bedsteads with new felt mattresses, and all rooms are
newly papered and freshly painted, furnished with dressers, tables,
chairs, etc. They are as comfortable as any rooms in the ordinary pri-

T. J. COLLINS 81 SON,
This humiliating, unsoldierly and self-respect-destroying custom
of cadets in our Governmental Academies, as well as in many lesser
institutions, makes us desire to put ourselves on record with prospec-
tive patrons that they may be assured that this practice and any prac-
tice that can possibly beconstrued as hazing is not nor ever has been
tolerated th the slightest at the Academy. There is no hazing tra-
dition, and every cadet, be he new or "old,l' knows that a breach of
the Regulations in this respect means summary dismissal. There
can be no excuse, no appeal, no palliation, and parents may be abso-
lutely sure that the Academy Authorities have both the desire and the
ability to protect their boys from any such outrage.
Bathrooms ann Qllusets T
We have erected in the past year new bathrooms and closets. The
bathrooms are fitted out with the latest approved shower-bath appara-
tus, in steam-heated rooms, with dressing rooms attached. They have
been a source of most genuine delight to all of our boys, and have
many advantages over the old "tub" system from the viewpoints of
both cleanliness and sanitation. The showers are fed by the Ruud
Instantaneous Heater process. A
The closets, built of brick, with absolutely sanitary plumbing and
running water, are so constructed asto forbid any likelihood of sick-
ness from unsanitary conditions. These buildings are daily inspected
and kept in absolutely proper and safe condition.
We would take this occasion to call to the attention of prospec-
tive patrons the great benefits accruing from this feature of the Acad-

"During the month of September several hundred thousand of
young Americans will leave their homes to attend some institution of
learning. How many parents realize just what that phrase-'leave
home'-means? Few, we fear, really grasp the idea embodied-the
fact that the moral influences of the home-life no longer surround
the child, but that the careful supervision of their physical welfare
with which the parents have guarded their sons and daughters is to
give place to another, and, too often, a different state of affairs.
"Even the most careful parents will neglect to make sure that the
hygienic surroundings of their children in the school are all that they
should be. If the curriculum of the school is satisfactory, the corps of
teachers made up of well-known educators, and the 'social atmosphere'
of the place of a sort that seems desirable for the young manx or
Woman, it is the habit of parents to. congratulate themselves upon hav-

is made it possibly has to do with the general healthfulness of the local-

enic status of the school? If itis a boarding school, who asks anything
about the kitchen, except as to the abundance of the food? Who asks
about the plninbing, the ventilation, the disposition of sewerage? Who
asks about the water supply?
"It seems almost beyond belief, in these days when health is con-
cededly dependent upon proper sanitary and hygienic surroundings,
that the head of a family could for a moment lose sight of these mat-
ters and send his dear ones to a place about which he knows nothing
concerning the care taken to preserve the health of the residents,
when reflection will assure him that the most sedulous care is nec-

into this subject quite extensively during the past few months, and if
some of the facts that have come to our notice during these investiga-

be shocked at the unsanitary and disease-breeding conditions existing
at some of the highest-priced and most fashionable schools.

The Academy is noted for its health-record. The School in all its
existence has never been dismissed during the session on account of
any malignant or contagious disease. Students of the malarial dis-
tricts of the South quickly give evidence in improvedxcolor, spirits,
and weight, of the health-restoring influences of the climate, While
many hundreds of boys have been sent us from the Northern States
that they might enjoy the, mild winters and invigorating mountain
The Academy is located upon a suburban hill of the little city of
Staunton, Virginia, which is a Well-known health resort, being among
the mountains, with the finest of mineral spring Waters.
The Academy is 1,600 feet above sea-level, and the prospect
from the grounds of the School looking in any direction is superb.
Cur air is pure, dry, bracing mountain air, and boys with
catarrhal or weak lung tendencies have always been benefited. Our
location is very generally conceded one of the best this side of the
Rockies for any one afflicted with pulmonic disorders. We have many
boys sent us every year solely on account of the invigorating moun-
tain atmosphere and many other desirable climatic conditions. We
have never had a single death in the Academy, and rarely, if ever, a
serious illness. This is a feature We would most earnestly call to our
readers' attention, as it is of the most vital iiiteifest to all patents, and
should be the first requisite demanded. Our sanitation is unsurpassed,

Being firmly convinced from years of observation of the pupils
who come to us that English is a subject all too frequently neglected,
and being strongly convinced of its paramount importance and the
necessity of a very thorough training in same, we wish to emphasize
the attention that is given to this branch of our curriculum here at
the Academy. '
English is taught with the constant aim in view of securing accu-
racy and facility in its use. The aim is kept steadily in view to lay the
groundwork of a thorough knowledge of the language by constant
exercise in the etymological forms, in the construction of sentences,
and in original compositions and essays.
"The gods se!! anything and to everybody at a fair price."
Moreover, we aim so to arrange the work in this department that
it may develop in the cadet a taste for good reading. Any course must
be radically Wrong that does not tend to create in boys the desire to
continue their reading after active life has begun. To further this end,
We require of our third and fourth year boys, as supplementary to the
study of the language and literature, the careful perusal of certain
English classics. To insure that this is done thoroughly, examinations
on the work assigned are held monthly. -

the student to intelligently interpret natural phenomena, the School is

This Department is under the dir.ect charge and supervision of
a Master of Accounts. The latest, up-to-dateiprocesses are applied.
The numberiof cadets taking this course this past term, forty-five,
amply' attests its popularity. .Its usefulness, in fact, its vvell-nigh
essentiality, needs no argument inthe minds of thoughtful pare.nts.
Terms for this course may be found under the head of Extras, else-

The School is provided with a well-selected and carefully-labeled
cabinet of minerals, and the instruction in this department is thorough,
accurate and practical.
There being a constantly increasing demand for instruction in

account of its refining influence, ample facilities are afforded for in-

The method of instruction in all instances aims at thorough mental
discipline and intellectual culture, carefully avoiding a system which
results only in storing the mind with unexplained rules and facts.
Examinations, chiefly written, are held in the middle and at the
close of the session, designed to test the pupil's progress and attain-
mentsg monthly tests are likewise held, and reports mailed to patrons
every second month.
.-Xnnounceinent is publicly made at the closing exercises of the
School of those who have obtained the required standard in tests and
exziminations, and the names of those so distinguished are awarded
certificates of Distinction or Proficiency. In cases of special merit,
gold medals are awarded. Twenty-eight medals bestowed last term.

1MAJ.-GEN. M. C. MEIGS, U. S. A.
The Military Department is so conducted
and arranged as not to interfere with the Aca-
demic in any way, being used as a ineans to an
end, but on the contrary, the discipline is so
woven into the fabric of the School's exercises
as to secure system, promptness, obedience, and
ment of order and study. This department of
the Academy has been in vogue for twenty-
jitfe years, in which time it has been molded
into its present efficiency and system, and is
one of the most valuable agencies towards the
upbuilding of prompt habits, obedience, defer-
ence towards elders, and unquestioned subordi-
nation--habits of the greatest importance to
carve upon the characters of the young.
N o cadet is in anywise excused from these
obligations, and all are held up to them by t
awards and punishments, as, in the judgment
of the Commandant, who has sole charge of 'A

a boy the upright bearing and manly appearance of a gentleman. It
makes a boy self-reliant and imposes responsibilities, and thus develops
individuality and conscious power, bringing out the individual traits
and strong points of one's character. . '
Fozzrtlz. The attention which a uniform naturally attracts culti-
vates in the wearer a regard for gentlemanly deportment and appeals
to his pride, so that he is led to careful habits of conduct, knowing that
others' eyes are upon him. It also imposes neatness, cleanliness, and
proper regard for personal appearance.
Fifth. Daily drills and exercises, while they develop and
strengthen the muscular system, produce correct, manly carriage and
graceful movements. They also have a great bearing upon the mental
qualities, quickening and strengthening them. '
Si,i-th. Our daily exercises' under a trained instructor, are a
blending of the Setting-up Exercises of. Tactics and the physical cul-
ture system so- widely advertised in our leading magazines, together
with deep-breathing exercises, all of which have been most carefully
selected and proven to be the highest beneht to our cadet corps. No
boy who is sent to us is allowed an absence from this work. The re-
sults of past years have been most gratifying and flattering, and we
have received many words of hearty endorsement from pleased
patrons. N o boy is allowed to shirlz these exercises arid drills.
The Academy being strictly military, no other clothes than mili-
tary are allowed to be worn after the uniforms are secured, which is
about three weeks after opening of session.
They consist of two suits, with military cap, gloves, and accoutre-
ments, and after their receipt all citizen's clothes are put away.

fees. Medicines are extra.
Parents should send their sons to school with their eyes and teeth
in good order, that dentists or oculists may not be visited in term-time.

Careful attention is given to the deportment of cadets at table.
Boys are apt to be forgetful of the proprieties of life when assembled
in any number, and when removed from the restraining influence of
the family circle. In order to avoid these evils, they are required to
observe the same care as to dress and tidiness that would be demanded
by the most carefulparents. They sit at the same table with the Fac-
ulty, and the favorable comments elicited from visitors by the gentle-
manly deportment of the boys constitute the best encomium upon the
results of the methods pursued.
There is a general loss account kept, and damages committed
against property-such as defacing and cutting wood-work, or walls
of the buildings, breaking of furniture or glass-are charged against
the offender when known, or, if the perpetrator is not discovered, the
entire school is made responsible and charged pro rata,
The sleeping-rooms are subject to daily inspection, and tidiness
and neatness are constantly insisted on and enforced. The same re-
straining infiuences are exercised in the schoolroom.
These facts are mentioned because of the too prevalent neglect in
this, and because education at schools is too often gained at the sacri-
Hee of good morals, good manners, and genteel deportment.
Each cadet is supplied with a separate bed.
All the buildings are heated With steam by the most approved pro-
cess, and are unsurpassed in the comfort of heating arrangements by
any school in the South. V
The grounds are sufficient for baseball, football, tennis, drill,
parade, etc., and the fair ground lake affords ample facilities for
The grounds are sufhcient for recreation and amusement, and be.-
yond these limits cadets are not permitted to go Without express per-
mission. This rule is rigidly enforced.
Books and stationery are furnished at usual prices, and a deposit
of ten dollars should be made for them.
Students will be received only for the entire school year, and
no deduction will be made for short delays of entrance, for With-
drawals, for dismissal, or for absence, unless caused by protracted
sickness' in the latter case, one-half the regular charges for the period
of such absence will be remitted. 85

Each cadet is limited in laundry to fifteen pieces per week, any-
thing beyond this is extra.
To answer numerous inquiries in regard to articles to be brought
with cadets, the following articles are suggested:
One pair of shoes, one hair-brush and comb, four suits medium-
weight underwear, one tooth-brush and powder, five neglige shirts,
any color, six pairs of socks, six towels, a supply of soap, one clothes-
brush, ten pocket handkerchiefs, six standing collars, six pairs white
cuffs. one rug to go in front of bed, one pair of blankets, one com-
fortable, gray or red preferred, one clothes-bag, six napkins, four sheets
about one yard and a half wide, two and a half yards long 5 four pillow-
cases, medium size for single bed, two night-gowns or two suits of
pajamas. All clothing should be marked with owner's full name.
To be purchased after arrival at School.-One dress coat, one
fatigue coat, two pairs of trousers, one cap, six pairs of white cotton
gloves, one set of accoutrementsg later on, in Spring, two pairs of
white duck trousers.
Those desiring to enter their sons in the Academy should give
ample notice. Last session, as usual, we had a "Waiting List," and have
already a large percentage of entries for the coming session of IQO8-O9
of this year's cadets. Prompt entrance in early summer has many
advantages to both the Academy and the boy. It allows us to know
where we stand in numbers, so that we may not disappoint prospective
patrons with notice of lack of accommodations, and adds to the cadet's
advantages, since his room, furniture, etc., are selected and in readiness
against his arrival. It, furthermore, gives us the advantage, and also
the cadets, of having suitable roommates assigned, which can only be
done according to ages and many other conditions which develop by
correspondence with parents as to temperament and character.
Upon the, arrival of each cadet his room is assigned him, articles
of furniture turned over to him, and he is held responsible for them.
Cadets may bring any room decorations, such as' pictures, flags,
sofa pillows, etc., to ornament quarters.
Daily inspections are made both by Faculty and Cadet Officers in
charge to see that all regulations as to order, neatness, and preserva-
tion of effects are carried out.

-effective because the remedy is sugar-coated. ,XVhat boy with red
blood in his veins is there, who does not feel a thrill at the tap of the
drum or the sound of the trumpet, who does not delight to handle a
riHe, or who does not simply glory in popping away with blank car-
tridges at an imaginary enemy in an infantry skirmish, or, if he is
proof against these, who will not yield to the dashing interest of the
mounted cavalry exercises, or to the artillery drill with its fascinating
suggestions of power? What other method is there that will so surely
and so quickly make the unpunctual boy on time to the dot, the untidy
boy neat and trim, the bashful boy confident and assertive, the round-
shouldered figure erect and full-chested?
HThe boy who at home unheeding the gentle maternal protests,
varies his rising hour indefinitely breakfastward, at the military school
springs from his bed at the first note of 'the reveille, and dresses as
though the house was on fire. The boy whose mother "picked up his
things" for him at home, is now his own chambermaid 3 he makes his
bed, sweeps his Hoor, keeps his furniture innocent of dust, keeps every-
thing in its place. The boy who. was accustomed to argue indeinitely
with parental authority now obeys without question or delay the com-
mands of the smallest and most youthful corporal. -The boy who at
home thought it looked 'stuck-up' to stand and walk straight and
slouched disfiguringly, goes about now with his head up and his chin
in, his chest out, and l1is stomach 'sucked-up,' his figure straight and
well poised and a goodly sight to see.
"The military method, however, to be effective must be real, there
must be no sham about it. It must not be too diluted, too modified.
The military schools that have succeeded best are those that have been
the strictest, and have trained their cadets in their military work as
earnestly and exactingly as if making of soldiers was the end in view,
and not simply a means. The mere nattiness and glimmer of the uni-
form can appeal only to the unworthy traits. If it is to appeal to the
best there is in a boy, 'the uniform must stand for something more than
a mere tickler of pride or fancy. The uniforms of the best military
schools are eloquent of prompt and unquestioning obedience, of system
and order, of setting-up exercises that square the shoulders and expand

ing boys to study in their rooms, under occasional inspections, as is
done in nearly all schools, chiefly to relieve the teachers, but have
found that the results 'did not come up to our desires, and as it is
results we are -after, no boy is excused from this condition. Study
hours at night are from seven till nine fifteen, and also morning study
hours before school session.
This has been of the greatest benefit to our boys, since they can
receive instant assistance., have no other books but their text-books
with them, know that the teacher's eye is upon them, and are, more-
over, stimulated by the example of boys studying all arourtd them.
Last year we had less than a dozen boys out of the entire school
who failed to receive a distinction in three or more branches, which
is an unusually high average. This is the result, partially, of close
supervision of study periods. Young' and untrained minds will not
study alone satisfactorily. We would call the attention of our readers
to this feature of the Academy. WE GET RESULTS.

To Captalrt Wm. H. Kable, A. ZW.,
Prlrtclpal, Staurttou M llltary Academy.
SIR: The following is my report up to date of the Staunton
Military Academy for the session of 1907-1908:
COLUMN OF SQUADS
"Add to Faith, Virtue, and to Viiftne, Knowledge."
The School is divided into two departments, the Academic Depart-
ment and the Junior Department. The Academic Department com-
prises the second, third and fourth year courses, and has ten instructors
Captain Daniel, Captain Stevens, Captain Drummond, Captain Hodges,
Captain Dick, Captain Linn, Captain Betty, Captain Benson, Captain
T. G. Russell, and myself. There have been enrolled in this department
two hundred and thirty-six cadets, andthe branches taught are as
follows: Six languages-English, Latin, Greek, French, German, and
Mathematics-from Elementary Algebra to Analytic Geometry
History-Ancient History, Mediaeval and Modern History, Eng-
lish and American Histories.
Natural Sciences-Physics, Chemistry, Botany, and Geology.
Mechanical Drawing, Bookkeeping, Stenography and Typewriting,
Spelling and Penmanship.
In addition to these, there are also two or three classes in Arithme-
tic and Beginneris Algebra, subjects that properly belong to the junior
Department, but owing to the irregular advancement of some of the new
cadets, classes had to be organized in this department also. From the
same consideration there is also a class in Physiology.
Every cadet is required to have at least tive studies, one of which
must be Spelling, and he can not have over seven, as there are only
seven recitation periods Qforty minutes eachj.
Spelling is coinpiilsory. Penmanship is taught by Captain VV. G.
Kable twenty minutes each morning, and all cadets, except the Seniors,
are required to take these lessons. The changes made two years ago
are still working admirably, and we are thoroughly gratified with the
results obtained This first is the assignment of a special teacher to take
charge of the work in English, and of nothing else. This has proven
very, satisfactory, and am sure that many of our best results are coming
from this change in the system.' The other change, made at the same
time, is the compulsory requirement for Spelling, which still obtains
throughout all departments of the School. Every cadet, from the Sen-
iors down to those who have just joined us-big, little, old and yonng-
is required to take Spelling thirty minutes every day. This change has

likewise produced highly beneficial results, it has indeed been a source
of such great benefit to the boys that I am satisfied it is one of the very
best features in our curriculum. To be a poor speller is an affliction, and
oft-times such a serious disease that it hinders materially that recog-
nition in life of which every ambitious young man is covetous, but by
forcing our boys to learn the art now, wehope to save them from the
dangers of so fatal a malady. , '
Another new- feature, addedl lastxyear, was a thorough course in
Commercial Mathematics-that is, mathematics for the business man,
involving problemsthat arise in every-day liIe,.problems that every boy
here will have to deal with after hefleaves us, no matter what pro-
fession he may enter. Eighty-one cadets' have taken advantage of this
opportunity this year. Next year- we have .-planned to supplement this
department with a good, strong course in Commercial and Industrial
Geography. No argument is necessary fn establish the advantages
which will be derived from this feature. Thorough familiarity with
the commerce and industries of the world in general, and of the United
States of America ini particular, should be a matter of "second nature"
with any boy who expects to carry histflag, successfully in the great
battle of life that lies before him. ,L W
The most important changes for next year are the addition of a
course in Sacred Study, to the curriculuni, the consolidation of the sys-
tem of recitations under one schedule' for entire School and the
equipment of a special Department of Mechanical Drawing.
The value and importance of a thorough knowledge of the Bible
and its teachings has never been questionedlby' any one worthy to be
entrusted with the care' and training of young boys, hence it is needless
for me to point out its advantages for the great work that we have
undertaken and the great responsibility that we know is o'ur's.
As to the adoption of one schediulei of recitations for the entire
School, I am absolutely sure of the good results that will be derived
from the change. Heretofore there has been a separate and distinct
schedule for each department, thus making it" practically impossible
for one department to relieve any congestion that may occur in another
department, and there is nearly always congestion in some department,
and, unfortunately for the permanent adjustment of the trouble, con-

"If is not so -much brilliancy of intellect, or fertility of resource, as
persisfency of effort, constancy of purpose, that makes a great man."
gestion never occurs two years in succession in the same department.
But with one schedule, and only one, we will make the departments
mutually helpful, and the surplus force in one can be applied without
any confusion whatever to make up for the deiiciency in another. Thus
we will be able to do more of strictly tutorial work, give more of per-
sonal and individual instruction, and of necessity we will get more
gratifying results. We will be able to do this because there will no
longer be any large classes, the term average size of classes will be a
misnomer, for all of our classes will be of practically uniform size.
These changes will not interfere in any way with the present system
of different school-hours for boys ofdifferent ages and advancement.
The integrity of each department will still be maintained so far as
organization and methods of instruction are concerned. When the first
ive periods of the Academic Schedule have passed, the lower depart-
ments will be dismissed, whereas the older boys, and those in the higher
classes, will continue at work till the session for the day is completed.
The Department of Mechanical Drawing, which will be equipped
this summer at considerable expense, will be a splendid adjunct to our
course of instruction. There are so many young men who intend to
make some branch of engineering their life-profession that it has be-
come practically necessary for us to offer a good, strong course in
Mechanical Drawing, a knowledge of which is absolutely essential to
any young man who wishes to pursue successfully a course in Engi-
neering at a standard University. As you know, we havealready em-
ployed an instructor who is especially fitted for this work 5 he comes to
us very highly recommended, and we fully believe that he will justify
the splendid testimonials he has furnished. c T
In the Academic Department is, of course, the graduating class,
composed this year of thirty-seven cadets:

Q A I CADETS' QUARTERS
"lV11at is Success? Nobility of purpose and persistence of effort."
in the junior Department during the year one hundred and five cadets,
which includes all the younger cadets of the Corps. The instructors
for this department are Captain Manuel, Captain Tiller and Captain
Hammett. In this department is taught everything from the rudimen-
tary principles up to a thorough mastery of what is generally known as
the common school branches. Latin is also studied during the last
year's work in this department, laying the foundation for the higher
work in the Academic Department.
Every night fexcept Saturday and Sunday nightsj there are two
study halls maintained, each in charge of a teacher, and no cadet is
excused from these sessions except for sickness, or some other un-
avoidable reason. These study halls assemble at seven o'clock, and are
dismissed at nine fifteen for the Academic Department, and at eight
forty-five for the Junior Department. The different hours obtaining
because of the different ages of the boys, the younger boys, you will
observe, being released after studying one hour and three-quarters. I As
each hall is dismissed the boys are given ten minutes to retire, inspection
being made by the Officer of the Day to see that these regulations are
carried out. At nine thirty every cadet is in bed, where he can sleep
and rest till reveille, seven o'clock the next morning.
This, sir, I trust will give you some idea of the organization and
classification of the School, and show you that we are not only trying
to keep up the high standard of the Institution in the past, but are
striving to surpass it if possible in good work and the best of results.
The Tutorial System, long established, still obtains and we believe it
the best solution for the educational undertaking of young boys. The
average size of our classes this year is twelve boys, and by far the
majority of classes inthe more important subjects have from six to
eight. And every ,class works because every teacher works, and thus
continually gives his classes daily stimulus to greater effort. It is ex-
ceedingly gratifying to realize from results we are getting that each
teacher is a specialist in his own sphere of work, and believe that it is
from this fact that this year's work bids fair to be the most satisfactory
the old S. M. A. has yet added to her long and honorable record. The
enthusiasm manifested by each cadet, the eagerness with which he per-
forms his class duties, and the pride he takes in the results of his efforts
"The Law of the Soul is eternal endeavor,
That bears the man ozzyward and upward forever."
are suiiicient evidence,.to my mind, that everybody is working, master
and pupil alike, and with an atmosphere thus generated of good, hard
earnest labor, how could we help but expect results of which we shall
all be proud? Thesuccessful close of the term just passed justiiies 'us
in the firm anticipation that June will iind us still higher in the struggle
for duty and work faithfully and thoroughly performed.
I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

These hours are modified for the younger cadets.
Monday afternoon is weekly holiday. The. morning hours from
8:30 to I :oo p. m. are occupied with various weekly exercises, such as
inspection, guard mounting, drill, and special instruction in other
departments. The afternoons are given to recreation till Retreat, when
the work-day order is resumed.
Two or three weeks are given upon Christmas, one day at Thanks-
giving, one at Lincoln's birthday, Lee's birthday, VVashington's birth-
day, and several days during Easter. At none of these
holidays are cadets allowed to visit home except Christmas. These
holidays are given as breathing spells for both teachers and cadets.
There may be one or two days' holiday throughout the session upon
some extra occasion, though this is rare.
"If we -would gaze on the Star of our Destiny, we must look for it
in our hearts." -
Pupils who remain in the school during the Christmas holidays
are charged at the rate of 31.00 per day for board and lodging.
Qlluurses nf Stump
The curriculum of the Academy is so arranged that upon the
completion of either course fClassical or Scientificj a diploma is grant-
ed. It will be observed that the requirements for the Classical diploma
or for the Scientific diploma are practically the same, except as regards
Languages and Chemistry. For the Classical diploma no Modern Lan-
guage, save English, is required, but the candidate must have had at
least three years of Latin, and he must have read four books of Caesar,
six orations of Cicero and six books of Virgil's Eneid. For the Scien-
tific diploma no Ancient Language is required, but instead at least two
years of some Modern Language CFrench, German or Spanishj and the
completion of Analytical Chemistry. And in the Modern Language
elected, the candidate must have made not less than 600 pages of satis-
factory translation from standard authors. One year of Physics, with
the satisfactory performance of forty experiments, is required for either
In the Special Courses, Certificates of Proficiency or Distinction
are granted. Certificates of Proficiency are given to those completing a
subject with an average to their-credit of anywhere between seventy
and ninety per cent. Certificates of Distinction are awarded to any who
attain ninety per cent. or more. '
Many years of experience and observation have fully established
the value of a systematic course of study for boys a11d young rnen, as
aiording the best mental discipline to all, and as the best preparation
for those wl1o purpose to pursue hereafter a special study, applying
equally to those intending to complete their course of study in a Uni-
versity, or to those who may complete their course here.
A thorough system of training is afforded to boys who are not
qualified to enter upon the Regular Courses, and careful instruction
is given in the branches essential to their later progress. Boys will be
received in this department at an early age, and will be thoroughly pre-
"Plan your work tlzorouglzly, then thoroughly work your plan."
pared to enter upon the Regular Course. To attain the highest ad-
vantages, it is evident that an education should be conducted upon a
systematic plan, and it will be a permanent advantage to enter as early
as circumstances will allow. The age of twelve is regarded as a proper
age, though even younger pupils have been admitted, and have made
most satisfactory progress.
For instruction in infantry tactics and in military police and dis-
cipline, the cadets are organized under the Commandant of Cadets, and
The officers and non-commissioned ofhcers are selected from those
cadets who have been most studious, soldier-like in the performance
of their duties, and most exemplary in their general deportment.

I have had so many opportunities to know the methods which Capt. William

success must be greatly increased under conditions such as he now possesses.
As to his scholarship and capacity as a teacher, I need not place them upo-n testi-
mony, which, however sincere, would be as valueless as mine. His modesty may
not have admitted the fact to himself, but I am sure that his reputation for both
is too well established throughout both Virginias to need testimonial or assurance
from any quarter. I

I have had a son under Mr. Kable's tuition for several years, and his prog-
ress was excellent. Mr. Kable brings his students well forward, while his meth-

parents or guardians may safely entrust their children or wards. .

MY DEAR SIRS: Upon my return home, after witnessing a few days ago the
closing exercises of your Academy, I can not refrain from expressing to you my
gratification with the very marked improvement of my two sons, who have been
with you for the past two years. Their moral, mental, and physical advancement
is exceedingly satisfactory, and I have the comfort of feeling and kno-wing
that in placing them in your school I have done all that a father could do for his
boys in their earlier education and training. I never saw a brighter set of boys
than those gathered about you, and which constitute the Cadet Corps. Their
"snap" and esprit are, admirable. .
Permit me to say that I was struck with your personal influence over the
cadets, and the elevating character of that influence. My observation, and it was
critical, of the general conduct and management of the school, confirmed me in
the intention to return my boys for the full course designed by you. I am, my
dear sir, very sincerelyyours,

your sanitary, Ere-proof barracks and your beautiful surroundings and healthy
climate that I left 1ny boy with you, feeling perfectly Satisfied as to his moral,
mental, and physical welfare. W'hen Granville returned to us at Christmas I
Soon saw that my selection of his school had been the best, we were more than
pleased with his improvement. Every way, you had taken hold of the boy with
a firm but gentle hand and had brought out the best there was in him, making a
little man of him. The best proof I can give of our appreciation of your school
is the fact that Granville will return to you in the fall, and his younger brother
will join him just as soon as he is old enough.

DEAR SIR: As the end of the school year draws nigh, I deem it only my
duty to let you know how much I appreciate the many ways in which you have
benefited my son during his stay at your Academy. I have been mo-re than
pleased with all his reports and the progress he has made this last year, and
know it is due to your good judgment in placing him in the hands of teachers
who are fully competent of taking care of young men and boys.
lt was my privilege to visit your Academy during the winter and I noted
with pleasure the beautiful location of your school. The climate is fine. I have
visited many other military institutions and must say I have yet to see a more'
man y set of boys than those I saw at the Staunton Military Academy. A boy
can not help but improve the longer he stays with you, and it puzzled me at first
to 'now what it was that caused the high moral tone of your institution, but
when I saw the fatherly care you manifested towards the cadets and their loyal-
ty towards you, it spoke for itself. Every cadet was the picture of health d
my own son has never been so well in his life, all due to the care and attention
he has received at your hands. His advancement in every respect has been so
marked in the last year that I shall again leave him in your charge next year,
for I fully realize I have at last found a place where I can send my son and
know he will receive a very good and thorough education, and also all the com-
forts and moral attentions of a home.
Thanking you for all you have done for him in the past, and wishing you
every success in the future, I am,

DEAR MADAM: I have your letter asking about the Staunton Military Acad-
emy and take great pleasure in recommending it as an ideal School for our boys
I know Captain Kable personally to be a gentleman of high character and a
splendid educator. The discipline of the Academy is excellent and the care with
which every boy is looked after makes us feel that our boy is in safe hands in
Our son, Newell, is now in his fourth year there and if we had a dozen boys
we would send every one of them to Captain Kable.
XVe did not send Newell there because he needed discipline, for he was
always a good boy, but we sent him because we felt that no better place could be
found for the making of intelligent, rugged, fearless, manly men out of boys
that had the right kind of training at home.
Captain Kable is drawing boys from all over the United States, so that no
particular section dominates the school. The boy from the North or West has
thc same chance, exactly, as the boy from the South. Merit is the only stepping-
stone to advancement in the Staunton Military Academy. ' ' .
In point of health the location could not be better. The buildings and equip-
ments are all high class and the comfort and welfare of our boys are carefully
considered by the management.
The faculty is composed of educators of merit and ability.
In my judgment, you could not find a better place to send your boy.

DEAR SIR: I am just in receipt of your esteemed favor of the eighteenth

only the Staunton Military Academy, but a number of other similar schools before
deciding to send my boy there. My experience with the school has not only
satislied me that I did the right thing in deciding upon the Staunton Military
Academy, but my boy's improvement in every particular, mentally, morally, and
physically, has been most gratifying. I can, therefore, recommend the Academy
to your favorable consideration without reserve and I believe that you will be
satistied at the progress which your boy will make if sent there.
'If I had a dozen boys I would not hesitate a moment in placing them com-

DEAR CAPTAIN KABLE: As our boy neared the age when he would leave
home for an education I was no-t a little concerned about the Selection of a
school for him. I knew the responsibility of the matter rested largely with me,
so in order to be prepared to select the place that would afford him the best
possible means of fitting himself for life's work, I made a careful study Of many
l H A137
schools and locations, and selected the Staunton Military Academy out. of a
goodly number, not only because it is situated in the most beautiful valley in the
country, with surroundings and climate most conducive to study and. healthful-
ness, but because our boy will 'have the advantage of military discipline, and
Christian influence and training also. The progress he has made is very grati-
fying, indeed, his health has been perfect, his associations most pleasant, and
since entrusting him to your care we are not in the least concerned abo-ut his
welfare. Mrs. Crawford joins me in wishing the Academy a prosperous future,
and in conimendingiit to parents having sons to send away from home to school.

done for my son in the past two years. I consider your training and discipline
most excellent. My boy returned home last June, a young man, full of praise

I wish to express my entire satisfaction with the progress of Cadet Frank I.
Price, Jr., and to assure you that unless the unexpected happens he will be
left in your care until he is graduated. A
NVe expected much of the Staunton School, else the boy would not have
been entered there, and to say that our expectations have been 'realized fully
is putting it mildly. One of the things that we did not hopefor was that the
patted and spoiled youngest child of the family, victim of the well-meaning
indulgence of all his elders, would return to us a man at the Christmas holidays.
.I do not mean to say that within three short months Frank has put away
boyish things altogether, or that he had become sedate. 'I-Ie was just as full
of life. just as much interested in sports and just as .eager for a good time dur-
ing his vacation as a healthy, normal boy should be.
On the other hand, he had been taught at Staunton that life has its serious
side and is full of reciprocal obligations. He carried himself as a self-respecting
young gentleman should, without swagger or vain-glory. , .
The progress he had made in his studies, and has made since returning to
you, as shown by his reports, is gratifying to Mrs. Price and myself, bo-th of
whom have had experience in 1f1ze.sch00l1'0011z as teachers, p
Although circumstances have arisen to prevent our intended visit to the
school, we are no less pleased with the condition there, and the location, than
we are with the results already attained.. , g 'I '
Q Frank and others have told us of the healthfulness of the situation, the mo-ral
tone of the community, and the general atmosphere of refinement and culture
which count for so muchin developing a boy's character along the proper lines.
I can not close' with any better endorsement than to say that I would advise
any father seeking school advantages to communicate with you at once and ar-
range for matriculation without delay.
I shall be glad to answer promptly and frankly any inquiries that may come

I .RIY DEAR SIR: Very many thanks for your kind letter telling us of the
fine health of the boys and the steady progress they are making in their studies.
Q I am greatly gratified with your final summary of the year's work .which is
now drawing to a close 3 but I am not in the least surprised at the result. Indeed,
from the hour that I saw the magnificent location and ample equipment of your
school buildings, and from the lips of your father and yourself learned the
fundamental ideas upon which youconduct the institution, I have been at'a loss
to conceive of a more ideal school for American boys, ranging in age. from ten
to seventeen, than is the Staunton Military Academy. '
It required all the courage and diplomacy that I could command to induce
my wife's consent to sending away from home two little boys so young as Boyce,
aged twelve, and jack, aged ten. Nor shall I ever forget the strain upon my
affections when I, personally, left the little ,fellows at the Academy last Seph
tember. But now that nearly a full school-year has passed, each week bringing
two or three letters from the' little fellows to their mother, and specially since
their visit home for the Christmas holidays revealed such astonishing progress
and development, I feel thatiit is due you and your father to make frank
acknowledgment of the great benefit you have conferred upon them: For they
left us little children, tied to their mother's apron-strings, and already We recog-
nize them as distinct individualities-well-developed boys, far in advance of their
age, and well along in the work of forming the characteriand strengthening the
individuality which will enable them to cope with the world. '
Already, therefore, the result is Such that I trust sincerely you may appre-
ciate its significance as much as we feel grateful to you for it. And I need
scarcely add, that if at any time I can Say aught in recommendatlon of the
Staunton Military Academy to other parents who have boys to educate I Shall
account it the greatest pleasure to do so. Your location is ideal, your system
of training ranks next to Wlest Point and the Naval Academy, and the insplring
example which both your father and yourself set for every boy in your keeping,
makes it a school which can not fail to grow in the estimation of every parent
and every scholar who comes to know it.
Very sincerely yours,

MY DEAR CAPTAIN: We have just received your report of the standing of
our son Newell, in his studies and deportment, and are greatly pleased with
same. We have watched very carefully his progress since We placed him in your
Academy last September, and are more than satisfied with the results.
Allow me, my dear Captain, to express to you my most sincere appreciation
of the methods used, and the thoroughness acquired in your Academy. Permit
me also to say that in the personal visit I made to Staunton last September, I
noted with much pleasure the high-class sanitary conditions about your grounds
and buildings, and the complete discipline maintained in every part of your work.
Your location is superb, your climate conditions most excellent, and a more
healthy locality would be difficult to find. Truly the Staunton Military Acad-
emy seems to us a most desirable institution in which to place our boys to make
of them intelligent, sturdy, independent, manly men.

DEAR SIR: It gives me pleasure to express my gratification at the progress
my son has made since entering your school. I selected the Staunton Military
Academy, after carefully considering the claims of many of the best schools
for boys in the South. I have not been in any wise disappointed, but am more
and more convinced that my choice was a fortunate one.
The boys who attend such schools are passing through a critical period of
life. The training they get then and the environment in which they live means
very much for their future careers. Realizing this fact, I most heartily recom-
mend your school to all parents. The intellectual training is unusually efficient,
and the moral influences are not only safe, but ennobling. V

iX'lY DEAR SIR: I desire to thank you sincerely for yourgreat and good atten-
tion to my son, Elliott. He has written me how very kind you have been to him,
and Mr. Floeter and I appreciate it very much and thank you.
I-Ie went to you last September anything but strong physically, having never
been able to attend school regularly, and since going to Staunton has missed but
two or three days from his regular school work. g ' '
I feel that with the excellent care you have given to him, together with your
marvelous climate, outside drill, etc., have been of the greatest benefit-to him,
for in the short time he has been with you he has developed into quite a strong,
sturdy youth. His progress in his school work has been entirely satisfactory.
He has made marked advancement in all of his studies.
XVe congratulate ourselves upon finally deciding to send him to your school,
and this we did after making many inquiries regarding difiei-ent Schools and
reading as many catalogues.
I was especially pleased, during my visit to your charming little city last
November, with the manly appearance of your boys. They were all courteous
and gentlemanly, and I was glad to have such boys for my's0n's associateg,
Without exception, I consider the tone of your school, discipline, climate and
work unexcelled, and I can not pay you and your school any greater compliment,
or show' my appreciation in any better way than to send my son to you again
next year, which I now expect- to do, and he is extremely desirous of returning.
Will you kindly remember me to your father? With very kind regards for
yourself. Yours faithfully,

Academy as a school for boys-inspiring in its beautiful surroundings, healthful
in its location, and thorough in its instructiong with instructors who,.by constant
care and watehfulness, show their fitness for their work and their love for the

trusted to their protection, whose cheerfulness and kindness never Waver under
the most adverse circumstances, nor when disaster eomesg who teach Godliness
with manliness. XVith such instructors, how could results be other than they
are? It was with some misgivings we sent ou-r son so far away from home, but
the results have justified the experiment, and his record is ga so-urcenof pride to

Mx' DEAR CAPTAIN: In the early fall of 1906, I was looking about ,for a
militaryschool in which to place my son. I accidentally saw your advertise-
ment in one of the magazines, and at once wrote you for a catalogue, which you
kindly sent me. After a careful perusal of it I came to the conclusion that it
was just the place for him. I, therefore, started with him for Staunton and was
most pleased with the beautiful climate, buildings, arrangement of the school,
and especially the Corps of Instructors to whom you introduced me. I well
knew from my experience in the army that the climate of the Shenandoah Valley
was fine and would be of great benefit to him.
On his return for the Holidays he came back looking fine and in the best
of health and was glad when the time came for him tolreturn to you. He has
progressed in his studies rapidly and in June when he returned he had grown
to be quite a manly fellow of five feet, seven inches and one hundred and
forty pounds. The reports from his teachers have been the best. On September
14th, IQO7, I accompanied him to school via Jamestown, Richmond and Peters-
burg to Staunton, where I left him to Hnish his course.
I have nothing but the highest praise for the manner in which you conduct
your school, and if I had more boys I should certainly send them to you, for I
know that they would be looked after in the most careful manner.
I take great pleasure in recommending the Staunton Militar Acad m
. . , Y e Y to
any one wishing to place their sons in a first-class school.

done, I am, my dear sir, Yours very respectfully,

And now that the year of schooling is nearly nnished I can truly say that
my expectations have been more-than realized, for no-t only have the reports I
have received from yourself and letters from others of your staff been most
gratifying, but what my boy tells me of the way he is treated, taught and cared
for are exceedingly more than I had expected.

MY DEAR CAPTAIN: Time certainly does pass away rapidly, and -I can
scarcely realize that my son, Morgan, has been with you three years, and the
three years have passed swiftly for him, as he is certainly very enthusiastic over
the benefits he has received at S. M. A., and has nothing but words of praise
for it and its goodteachers.
VVhen Morgan started in your School he was growing very fast, and inclined
to be stoop Shouldered and awkward, like a great many boys of fourteen years.
The very first time he came home on a visit Mrs. Davidson and myself could
see a great improvement in his- carriage, and every time he has been home since,
the improvement has continued, and now he is as Straight as an arrow, and has
the endurance and physique of an Indian, thanks to the military training he has
received at S. M. A., and I shall never cease to be thankful for sending him
' A .153
there. I certainly feel grateful to you for the personal interest you have taken
in the lad, and desire to assure you that I am very highly pleased with the prog-
ress he has made, Inentally, morally and physically, a11d it is a great pleasure
to me to be able.to.speak',so highly of, your school. , I 4 .,
I am also glad to be in position to say a few words personally in regard to
S. M. A., as I have visited the school several times, and have hadan excellent
opportunity to become fully acquaintedwitli the thorough manner in which the
cadets are tutored and drilled, and the combination of indoor studies, and out-
door' exercises and drills are ideal, and the healthy, vigorous climate of Staun-
ton, makes the outdoor exercises all the more beneficial.
During my different visits in Staunton, I became very well acquainted with
Major Russell, Captain Daniel and yourself, and I know all of you take a per-
sonal interest in every boy entrusted .to your care, and if a boy has any good
material in him, it will certainly be developed to the very highest capacity, and
he will be put on the right track to makea man among men of himself.. , .
I can not close without saying' that it would be, impossible for me' to, recom-
mend the school too highly, andil wish every om-gwho, has a boy, could send him
to S. AM. A., for if I had a dozen boys, I would send all of them there until they
were graduated, and as the school year is nearly closed, I desire you to enroll
Morgan for another year. , . , , V

MY DEAR MR. KABLE: Two years ago, without any personal knowledge
of the merits of your school, and relying solely upon the results you have given
your former patrons, I was induced to place with you my fifteen year old son,
John Jacob, believing that he would secure at your hands the advantages I most
desired-a continuance of a Wholesome, moral, mental and physical training.
My SO11,S progress during these two years with you has been critically
watched and it IS a pleasure to note his steady improvement i11 all that enters
into the making of a good, self-reliant, capable and intelligent young man. I-Ie
appreciates the thorough, thoughtful and conscientious assistance rendered him
by your corp of intelligent instructors and is in love with his school work and
life. For all this I join with him in thanking you.
To any prospective patron I would say that the work of your school can
not be better understood than a careful reading of your catalogue which, does
not overdraw the many advantages you offer young meng you aim to mold
young men into good and useful citizens, and with the assistance of the pupil,
you accomplish the purpose. '

in a first-class hotel, but which cause surprise when found in a boys' boarding-
school. Besides the extensive grounds handsomely laid off and nicely kept, the
playgrounds for baseball, football, etc., are all that could be wished, whilst the
large parlors, study hall, library, halls and passages are for the: use and enjoy-
ment of the boys. A gymnasium, readily accessible, affords opportunity and
means for physical development, and is highly appreciated by all the school.
The boarding department receives careful attention, The excellence of the
table fare, the tidiness and neatness of the dining-room and outfit, the thorough
and constant supervision bestowed upon the dormitories, all give evidence of
industry, thorough attention, and superior management,
T he school room or Academy is a marvel of elegant adaptation of means to
an end. All the rooms are on the same floor, with the exception of the chemical
laboratory, which is below the assembly room and recitation room. The instruc-
tion given in analytical chemistry is such as rarely can be given in our colleges,
for the reason that you will hardly iind such a laboratory outside of a university,
W'e wish it to be known throughout the State, at least, that chemical analysis,
both qualitative and quantitative, can be made at this laboratory, and that work
done here may be relied upon as thorough, accurate, and complete.
Over all Captain Kable presides, encouraging and stimulating his pupils to
faithful and successful effort, He is in constant supervision of the school, and
permits no deliection from duty to escape his attention. In every branch of study
he has shown the utmost liberality in providing the best instruction by the best
instructors. His aim and determination when establishing this enterprise was
to have a school best in all respects, and not count costs until he had attained
that end, ' ,
The fact that the teachers 'reside on the premises, having a constant and lm-
mediate intercourse with the pupils, and being accessible at all times in case of
needed instruction, adds vastly to the excellence of this system,
The school has drawn patronage from an area of country embracing all of
the Gulf States..
W'hen the merits of this school shall have become more generally known,
Captain Kable will be kept busy from year to year in providing to accommodate
increasing-patronage. V ' " " ' A i A ' ' 4 '
'lt is well' recognized as a fact that in ou-r climate a youth can study a half
ora' third more than he can at home in Georgia, Florida, and other Southern
States. "i' A ' A , T '
' A' Southern gentleman remarked to us 'that his son could study twice as
much in this climate as at home. So, merely from an economical point Of view,
he would prefer to sendhim to school here. I
' --As a citizen of Staunton, we-feel grateful to Captain Kable for maintaining
in our midst an institution of which any community might well be-proud, and
ive are glad to take this occasion of expressing our appreciation. ' We have seen,
and know whereof we aflirm. We predict a phenominal success for an enterprise
that is deserving of success.--Valley Virginian, January 7th, I886. ' T
The editor of the Charleston CW. Val Spirit, recently in Staunton, writes
to that journal: ' s . '
' 'WVhilst in Staunton ,last Wfednesday, we were shown by Captain' W. H.
Kable through his school buildings andgrounds, 'and We were pleased to see
everything in the most complete arrangement for a thorough, systematic course
of training." ' " ,
' Gur contemporary is right. Captain Kable has literally the "most complete
arrangements for a thorough course of training" ,for the young that we have
everknown in Virginia. Its equipments in all respects are not equalled by any
preparatory school we know off It is a school which our city and section have
solid grounds for being' proud of.-Staimton Vindicator. '
A The opera house hadia time audience present to show their interest in andto
enjoy the final exercises of the Staunton Military Academy, of which Professor
VV. Kable is -Principal. The Stonewall Brigade Band was present and -aided
to enliven the scene. This school may well be called a model preparatory school.
In its faculty are teachers who came to it from professorshipis in colleges, and
altogether it has an outfit in brains and facilities for education that no school in
Yirginia, within our knowledge, has ever rivalled.-Vindicator, June 18th, 1885.

The Work in the Laboratory of the Staunton Miliary Academy.
.comparatively few of our readers are acquainted with the extent and p-racti-
cabihty of the science course at Staunton Military Academy. This department is
conducted so differently from that of similar institutions, some of which are
more pretentious, if their advertisements are to be relied on, that we are satisfied
that a brief description of a scene that may be daily witnessed there will not
prove without interest to the general public.
Captain Kable, the principal of the Academy, recognizes the fact that a new
era has dawned upon Virginia, and a new field of usefulness opens before our
young men. ' The future greatness and prosperity of the State is in the develop-
ment and utilizationof the wondrous latent wealth that slumbers within her
borders, and the demand of the hour is for men of science and practical skill to
wake to activity the dormant resources. To meet this demand Captain ,Kable has
spared neither trouble nor expense. Commodious and handsome buildings have
been erected, and an expensive laboratory been fitted up, and the services of a
thorough analytical and practical chemist secured. Not only is the course
thorough, but the instructor manages to make it so attractive that the students
become so absorbed in their work that supper-tirne is frequently forgotten, and
when a schoolboy overlooks meal hours he is either intensely interested or there
is a screw loose somewhere. The hours spent in the laboratory seem divested of
the irksomeness of study. There is an ,apparent absence of restraint-of the
mechanical routine of the schoolroom. Each student sets about his task with a
relish that quickens as his experiment progresses, and is maintained until the
desired result is reached.
The Student's Laboratory is a large, well ventilated room, eighteen by twenty
feet, with desks, shelves, and a convenient little closet for every student. Each is
supplied with a full set of reagent bottles, and all the apparatus necessary for
the various analyses. There is also a balance case containing two balances, one
so delicate as to indicate a variation of one three-Imndred-thousandths of an
ounce, and two "hoods"-funnel-like arrangements of tin-to carry unpleasant
or dangerous vapors up the chimney. Adjoining this room is a private laboratory
for the instructor, fitted up for .allkinds of analytic work, and where various
analyses are made every day. e
At present there are four grades of students at work. First, those in blow-
pipe analysis, who determine the composition of minerals, ores, chemical lpow,-Z
ders, etc. Second, those who determine the composition of solut1on by, wet
analysis, and Third, those making quantitative analysis, and they are required to
find the percentage within two-tenths of one per cent. of the exact amount.
Results as close as one two-hundredths of one per cent. Of the exact HIHOUIN have
been found during the present term by students in this grade. Fourth, those
making assays of ores by the "fire" methods.
The work done at the Staunton Military Academy is equal if not superior
to that done in most colleges. Few colleges in Virginia have a laboratory so
completely supplied and doing work so advanced.
XVhen the reporter visited the school on Friday, he was permitted to see
the practical results of the boys' work. 'Without the knowledge of the analyst,
he selected a liquid substance from the dozens of bottles in the instructor's
laboratory, and asked one of the students to tell'him what it -was and how he
determined Vit. I11 a' few moments the work had' been done, aproper answer
given, and the process by which it was reached explained. He then submitted a
piece of raw ore, and its principal constituents were also determined in a short
time, and theprocess explained. XVhat the reporter saw can be seen there any
school-day between the hours of 9 a."m.Vand p. m. Visitors- cause no interrup-
tion to the work, and those interested will be welcomed. ' ' ' '
't These analyses were made in the laboratorybof the "'Stau1i-
ton Military Academy" by the students, and the accuracy of the results is guar-
anteed by the instructor. The work of the students of this school is thorough
and accurate and includes the analysis of ores, limestones, clays, fertilizers,
etc. 'l' tl' it -Coal Trade Journal of New York. I '

, , STAUNTON, VA., July 3d, 1886.
As President of one of the largest colleges for young ladies in Virginia, and
feeling, therefore, a deep interest in the character of all male schools ,inor near
the city, I take pleasure in bearing testimony to the high character ofa Professor
Kable's school in this city. In my opinion, it is a Hrst-class school for boys or
young men who are preparing for colleges or even active' duties of life. Professor
Kable is an educator of long and successful experience in his noble vocation. ,He
is assisted by tried and experienced instructors in all departments. His build-
ings are elegant, scenery and surroundings beautiful. In ai word, his school is
an academic home, where his pupils will enjoy high intellectual' and moral cull
ture, with all the care and comforts of a retinedand happy home. I believe it to
be such a school as parents are seeking for their sons. ' ' V
These facts are attested by thesuperiordiscipline, the thorough culture and
gentlemanly bearing of his pupils, by the cordial approval of his patrons, and the
high .reputation and popularity of his school, far and wide.
- I cordially commend Professor Kable, his assistants and school, to all who
have sons to educate. , .
