that the student may be able to understand his mother tongue and use it correctly and efficiently in the expression and enunciation of thought. 8. Modern languages. French is taught, so as to give the student the means of acquiring a sufficient mastery of the language to have access to scien- tific authorities. It is expected that facilities will soon be ptovided for the study of German. 9. Political science. The course provides for instruction in political economy, that a knowledge may be gained of those established laws which govern in the business orld, and control the market, finance, the production and distribution of wealth. The duties and privileges of the citizen in his many rela- tions to the State are considered. 10. Military science. Under the law by which the college was founded, instruction and drill in military tactics are required of each student, unless ph si- cally debarred. Advantages. The facilities for instruction and illustration are of the best, and include a working library of 12,000 volumes properly classified and cata- logued ; the State collection of birds, insects, reptiles and rocks of Massachusetts ; the Knowlton herbarium of 10,000 species of named botanical specimens; the 1,500 species and varieties of plants, types of the vegetable kingdom, cultivated in the Durfee plant house ; the large collection of Amherst College within easy access ; a farm of 383 acres, divided between the agricultural, horticultural and experiment departments, embracing every variety of soil from meadow, pasturage and lowland, to swamp, hillside and woodland ; chemical and zoological labora- tories commodious and fully equipped ; the State Agricultural Experiment Station, and also the United States Hatch Experiment Station, both located upon the college farm, offering splendid opportunities for observing the application of science to the problems of agriculture. In addition to these many advantages, during the past year large accessions have been made to the equipment of the several departments. The Durfee plant house has been rebuilt and greatly enlarged ; a new tool house and work shop has been erected ; .hundreds of new books have been added to the library ; many valuable additions have been made to the museum, including a plastic model of the horse.
