National Normal School

Expenses $4.00 PER WEEK:
Including Tuition, Books, Room Rent, Table Board, Bedding and Bed-
Washing; By self-boarding these expenses are generally
Reduced to $3.00 Per Week.

The past year has been one of unprecedented prosperity and success.


The enrollment in the 16th annual catalogue is 1,367 different pupils.
The average term enrollment for 16th year, was about 460.
This large attendance makes it necessary to sustain over forty recitations and drills daily, of fifty minutes each; besides as many more exercises weekly, in the debating, scientific and literary sections, into which the several departments are divided.


Twelve boarding houses are owned and controlled by the Principal. The rooms are comfortably furnished. Only two pupils occupy one room. Students occupying the Principal's house, can get board at one of his tables or elsewhere. Good table board is furnished at $2 per week, at more than a dozen places. A lively competition keeps the board wholesome and palatable at all these tables.


In the School Year of this Institution there are five terms, four of eleven weeks and one of six weeks, giving only two weeks vacation in August.

Any person entering at any time, can find classes that will meet his wants, from the beginning classes in all the common branches, to the highest classes in the College Course.

A sufficient number of teachers (now 11 in regular branches and in extra branches) is employed to prevent any class becoming too large for successful management; and careful attention is paid to the wants of every pupil in every class.


We have had an increasing demand for teachers trained in our methods, and all whom we recommend are sure of employment, at wages from $2. to $5 per day, according to the positions they are competent to fill.

Catalogues giving all the particulars will be sent free to all who apply for them.
