It is within easy reach of Adams and Pierrepont Manor railroad stations on the R. W. Sa O. division of the New York Central railway system. It is free from the harmful influences and temptations that are peculiar to larger places. The environments of the place tend to promote morality and encourage study. North Sandy Creek flows through the village and empties into Lake Ontario about four miles distant. The section is remarkably healthful and free from epi- demic diseases Belleville is a village of about five hundred inhabitants, and a feeling of loyalty to the interest of the Academy per- vades the community. . There is a railroad connection by two lines of stage. A macadam road between Adams and Belleville, completed last summer, makes the drive much shorter and more pleasant. Arrangement has been made whereby students will be brought from the train at the beginning of the school year and taken back at the close of school free of charge, GENERAL INFORMATION UNION ACADEMY For eighty years Union Academy has held a high place among the best schools of our country. The graduates of "Old Union" may be found in almost every state and terri- tory throughout the country. The past year has been one of the most successful in the history of the institution. - 1 GROUNDS AND BUILDINGS . Residence Hall faces the principal street of the Village. The building contains apartments for both sexes. On the first iioor are Memorial Hall, the Library, Office and Princi- pal's living rooms. The Instruction Hall extending east from Residence Hall contains the chapel, music and .recitation rooms, laboratories, dining-room, etc. The Clock Tower is a short distance south of the main building. Ample shade is afforded by many large trees, ,making it a delightful place in spring and fall. The grounds south and north of the building are fitted for tennis, croquet, football, baseball and other athletic sports. There is also a park of four acres, planted with ornamental and shade trees of many Varieties adjoining the grounds. The Academy also owns a Wood lot, .donated by.Morris M. Shepardson, for the cultivation of timber and the beautifica- tion of the country. COLLEGE ENTRANCE , Since graduation at Union Academy depends one the pos- session of a Regents diploma, and since Regents diplomas CHAPEL, UNION ACADEJM Y UNION ACADEMY I3 now admit their holders to many of the best colleges and uni- versities in the country, it follows that the graduates of Union Academy will be received into all such institutions without examination. Colgate, Columbia, Cornell, Elmira, Hamilton, Hobart, Rochester, St. Lawrence, Syracuse, Union, Vassar and the state normal schools may be men- tioned as being among the institutions that receive our graduates without examination or only the examination in English. V DISCIPLINE No conventional set of rules is published for the guid- ance of students. It is the purpose oi the faculty to maintain that discipline in which the best work may be done by stu- dents of the school. Whenever the conduct of any student becomes a detriment to the best interests of the institution and the institution is doing him no good his connection with the school will be severed. RELIGIOUS SERVICES Services are held twice on Sunday in each of the two churches of Belleville, the Baptist and the Methodist Episco- pal, and students are expected to attend church regularly. Service is held from time to time in the Catholic chapel. The Academy is undenominational in its character and aims to inculcate the principles of morality and Christianity in the minds of all students who may come under its influence. RHETORICALS I During the first three quarters, beginning at 2145 o'clock on Friday afternoon of each alternate week, rhetorical exer- cises are held in the chapel. I4 UNION 'ACADEMY During the fourth quarter the members of the third year class will take part but once, while the members of the fourth year class will receive drill for Commencement exercises. Careful instruction is given in this branch of the Work, and each student receives individual attention. TEXT-BOOKS IN USE These books can be purchased at cost at the office of the Academy.

Special emphasis is given to the appli- cation of theory as we have it exemplified in practical life. Collections for facilitating the study and practical work in this department are ample and in many cases complete. Field work in geology, botany and Zoology have been special features, by means of which individual collections have been gathered and intense interest created. In all branches of this department note books with carefully kept notes and neatly executed drawings are required. During the past year 3160.00 worth of new apparatus has been added to this department, which not only furnished some very fine machines for demonstration work but also for individual laboratory work. PHYSICS-The aim of this branch of science is to give the student as broad a knowledge of the subject of natural phi- losophy as possible, to develop habits of observation and reasoning necessary for scientihc work, and to teach the use of scientilic apparatus. For this purpose there is a Well equipped laboratory for the use of the students. ELECTRICAL COURSES-Electrical phenomena, principles and machines are treated. The work consists of experiments, text-books and talks. Among the points discussed are the UNION ACADEMY I7 voltaic cells, circuits, dynamo, motor, electric lighting, magnets, induction, heating methods, electric apparatus, X-rays, late inventions.

Provision for other lines of work in this department will be made in accordance with the demand therefor. No previous preparation is required of pupils who take the Work of this department, hence no entrance examinations are necessary. X THE MATHER SCHOOL OF AGRICULTURE By the gift of 310,000 from the families of George Mather and William W. Mather, in 1901, a school of agriculture was added to the departments already taught at Union Academy. As Union Academy is the Hrst secondary school in the state to introduce agriculture into its curriculum, the progress has necessarily been slow. The rapidly increasing interest in the physical and natural science studies has paved the Way for the successful introduction of agriculture. Definite schedules have been formulated and the Work carefully planned to meet the needs both for the younger students Who may later take Work in an agricultural college or may return to the farm and for the older persons who may Wish to put in practice at once the principles of agriculture. For the former the course of instruction is so arranged that besides the principles that underlie practical agriculture one may also get sufficient English, mathematics, literature, modern language and science to enable one to secure the regular Academic Regents diploma. For those who care particularly for the practical side of agriculture they will devote their sole attention upon purely agricultural subjects, taking up the improved methods used in the various operations of farming, such as the use of farm machinery, value of fertilizers, both commercial and farm, treatment of soils, management of crops, feeding and caring for stock, dairy operations, poultry keeping, study of breeds and breeding, diseases of plants and animalsvvith methods for treatment of same, the study of chemistry in its application to agriculture, and insects in relation to grains and fruit trees. In short all phases of agriculture Will be treated. The courses of this department are three: 1. The regular four year course. 22 UNION ACADEMY 2. "CThe special two year course. 3. 'l'The winter ten week course. tThe special courses are designed more particularly for older persons who may have only alimited amount of time for studyg but age will not debar any one from either ,of the courses. CHEMISTRY OF DAIRIYNG This course consists in general management of modern dairying, the methods of milk analysis, the bacteriology of milk, the use of separators, the methods of testing milk fmost emphasis being placed on the Babcock centrifugal testj, ripen- ing of cream, butter and cheese making. All the chemicals and allied changes which take place in the handling of milk and its manufacture into butter and cheese. Students receive practical training in the modern methods at the Belleville Dairymen's Association Factory. This is a new factory equipped throughout with modern apparatus for both butter and cheese making. In size it ranks among the iirst in the state. i ' Text-book used in this course is t'Chemistry of Dairyingn by Harry Snyder. Bulletins from the various experiment stations are read and discussed. .COURSE OF STUDY IN AGRICULTURE The following is the regular course with subjects as they occur in the respective years: ' FIRST QUARTER SECOND QUARTER THIRD QUARTER FOURTH QUARTER First Year English 51- English 5 Rhetoric 5 Rh6'f01'iC 5 Arithmetic 5 Arithmetic 5 Commercial Arithmetic 5 Q01'f1me1'013-1A1'ithmStiC 5 Physical Geography 5 Physical Geography 5 - Geology qsoilj 5 Geology 650115 5 Drawing 5 Drawing 5 Plans for Farm Buildings P121I1S f01'F21T1T1 B11i1di11gS Second Year ist Latin 5 1st Latin 5 1-st Latin 5 Ist Latin 5 .

A set of large photographs of excellent quality has recently been provided, illustrating classic subjects of art, literature, architecture and biography. LIBRARY KAND READING ROOM The library, containing 2,350 volumes has been recently catalogued according to the most approved methods, is open every school day, attended by the librarian. Students and people of the town have direct access to the books and have free the privilege of drawing any volume for two weeks at a time. The working reference library is in the chapel. This library consists of about 150 books. It is supplied from the large library with books bearing most directly upon the class work, while it contains permanently such works of reference as are in constant use. Some of these are: The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia, The Encyclopaedia Britannica, The American Encyclopaedia, The Young Folks' Encyclopaedia, Alden's Cyclopaedia of Universal Literature, Worcester's Unabridged Dictionary, Lippincott's Gazetteer, and Diction- ary of Biography, Skeats's Etymological Dictionary, Grove's Dictionary of Music, Roget's Thesaurus, Smith's Synonyms, Labberton's Historical Atlas, Peck's Classical Dictionary, and Morely's English Writers. LITERARY SOCIETIES The ladies' Sibylline Society and the gentlemen's Glad- stone Debating Club are literary organizations which hold their meetings bi-weekly in Memorial Hall. UNION ACADEMY 25' A fine course of lectures and entertainments is given under the auspices of Union Academy. ENDOWMENT The endowment fund amounts to nearly 344,000 and owing to this fact Union Academy can offer its advantages at a less expense than most schools of equal rank. SCHOLARSHIPS The Frederzkfa Wi!!z'ams Scholarshqn' established in 1887 by Frederick Williams, of Belleville, by a gift of 33,000- The Shepordson Scholorshms, established by the late Eunice E. Shepardson of Belleville, by a gift of 32,000. The Gaylord Memorz'a! Seholezrshgo Frmd, started in 1893 by the graduates of Union Academy who once were pupils of Principal Henry A. Gaylord, by gifts of 3600. K The f. f. Mather Scholarship, established in 1894 by Mr. J. Mather, of Belleville, by a gift of 3500. These funds make it possible to grant to worthy students free tuition scholarships. Applications may be made to the Principal. Scholarships are granted by the quarter. v New applications should be made three weeks before the com- mencement of each quarter. Assignments made under the following conditions: "To those academic students who are least able, with such help as parents or guardians can give them,tto pay their own ex- penses, and are worthy of such assistance as is manifested by the deportment and successful industry of the student. No student may receive more than S36 a year," or 39 a quarter, "and that only in payment for tuition in class or room rent due the Academy. Students may, zf Zhey choose, regard Me 26 UNION ACADEMY same as a loan, and rerzwn it when able Z0 do soy in which case the money so returned is to be used as income of the scholar- ship funds, for the benefit of other students." BOARDING DEPARTMENT Good board in this department is furnished students at reasonable rates. The teachers ,take their meals in the din- ing-room. HOME DEPARTMENT The living rooms of the Academy furnish excellent ac- commodations for about forty students. The government is intended to be that of a Well managed home. Unless living with relatives non-resident students should room and board at the Academy when possible. By doing so an opportunity is afforded to students to secure aid in preparing lessons during the hours of evening study and to share the privileges of a beneficial association with teachers in the dining-room and elsewhere and a Wholesome restraint which is a benefit to students in general. Students who room outside the building are supposed to observe the same hours of study as those inside. REGENTS READING COURSES Students are advised to read these courses privately and take examination. It is hoped also that many persons 1101: students may find in these courses and examinations a stimulus to good reading. ' ENGLISH READING coURsE FOR READING SHAKESPEARE-MCTCh2Dt of Venice, Macbeth.
