THE INDEX. 41 Results ai - e now apparent, and our Trustees could with pride and satis- faction give an account of their stewardship. Since 1868 there has been no advance in agricultural science, no positive discovery of principles in any department of agricultural effort, no demon- stration of improved methods to secure the advantage of natural law, no effort made to elevate the farmer and secure him from fraud on the right hand and on the left, but what the College has led the way or been an active co-worker, until at the present time, by general consent, it is the ai-biter of contested questions of science and practice. The number of students who have pursued the full curriculum course and received the State diploma is 288, and the specials who have taken the agricultural course 470. making a total of 758 who have here received preparation for their field of labor. A large proportion of these men are now engaged in their life work. This is quite varied, but it is overwhelm- ingly agricultural. Forty per cent, are engaged in practical agriculture, and a very large number in pursuits intimately connected therewith. Many are teachers of the science and practice of agriculture in tbe field and in the younger agricultural colleges in all parts of our own country and in foreign lands, while many others are officers in the experiment stations of the different States. In one season of financial distress the College farm in its improvement has been the greatest sufferer, yet there has been a steady advance. The grass fields, which in 1868 produced barely 100 tons of hay, have the present year yielded 300 tons. The pasture lands nave increased their feed in the same proportion, and the same may be said of the other farm crops. The botanical, horticultural and floral department, which had no exist- ence in 1868, has grown to large proportions. By the introduction, im- provement, propagation and dissemination of sbrubs, fruit and flowers, it has given a great movement in this direction over a wide extent of country, improving the tastes and beautifying the homes of our people. The College has become an acknowledged power for usefulness in other directions, though strictly attentive to the prime object of its organization, and these results it is believed are but the precursor of still greater ones which the future will unfold.
