Union Academy is situated in the village of Belleville,
jefferson County, New York. 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-
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,
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.
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,
The Clock Tower is a short distance south of the main
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

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
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.
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.
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.

i The aims of this department are to cultivate an intelli-
gent appreciation of creative thought in nature, to lead the
way to correct habits of study and observation by means of
inductive reasoning. 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

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

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.

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.
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.

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,

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
