Courses of Study. 



In order to meet the wants of a larger class of Students, nine regular 
Courses of .Study are provided, namely : The Normal English, Belles Lettres, 
Science and Literature, Classical, Practical Science, College Preparatory, Art, 
Music, and Business. Students may adopt any of these Courses exclusively, 
or may select such studies from them as they desire, subject to the approval 
of the Faculty. 

The Normal English is designed to meet the increasing demand for 
teachers in our Common Schools, and is heartily commended to young ladies 
and gentlemen who desire thorough instruction and drill in the English 
branches. 

The Belles Lettres Course is especially arranged to accommodate young 
ladies who may wish to omit the Higher Mathematics beyond Elementary 
Algebra and Geometry. It thus affords opportunity to connect studies in 
Music and Art with a well-selected Course in Literature and Science. 

The Course in Science and Literature is intended to give wider culture and 
more thorough mental discipline. It differs from the Classical Course mainly 
in that it omits the Greek Language entirely, and makes Latin elective with 
German or French during the first two years. Before entering upon this 
Course, the Student must be thoroughly acquainted with the Common English 
branches. 

The Classical Course is much more extensive than is ordinarily pursued at 
Seminaries. It will compare favorably with the curriculum adopted by our 
best institutions of learning. We offer it with entire confidence to young men 
who are preparing for professional life, and also to young ladies who aspire to 
superior intellectual culture. The preparation for this Course is a thorough 
knowledge of the studies embraced in the Academic Course. 

The Practical Science Course covers the required preparation for admis- 
sion to schools of Technology and to Industrial Courses in our best Univer- 
sities and Colleges. However, it is specially arranged to meet the increasing 
demand for scientific and literary instruction by those who contemplate an 
Academic training. As a preparation for assured success in industrial 
occupations we heartily commend it. 

The College Preparatory Course is arranged for those who desire thorough 
instruction and systematic drill in all branches requisite for admission to our 
best Colleges and Universities. We commend it especially to parents who 
wish to place their children under the watchful care of experienced teachers, 
while they receive the literary culture of a high grade institution of learning, 
and enjoy the social advantages of a well-regulated Christian home.

ACADEMIC COURSE. 

This Conrse will give thorough instruction and drill in the Common English branches, and also 
prepare the Student for admission to the higher Courses. Classes are formed each term, for

Geometry and Latin.

BUSINESS DEPARTMENT. 

This Course is designed to give a thorough knowledge of the principles of 
business transactions. It mgiy be pursued alone or in connection with other 
studies, thus accommodating those seeking a literary, as well as those seeking 
only a business education. The time required to finish it will depend upon 
the proficiency of the pupil in the English branches, and the diligence with 
which he works. 

STUDIES, 

The Course will include instruction in the Common English branches, 
Book-Keeping — Single and Double Entry — Business Correspondence, Busi- 
ness Papers of various forms. Civil Government and Political Economy. 

TUITION.

except for Book-Keeping, for which $5.00 per term of tliree months will be 
charged. 

ADVANTAGES. 

This department offers all the opportunities for general culture afforded 
Students in other departments, assured by well conducted literary societies, 
lectures, large libraries, association with experienced teachers, and the refining 
influences of a Christian home. 

Board, Room, Washing, etc., same as in other departments. 

ADMISSION. 

Students may enter this department at any time in the Academic year, a 
fair knowledge of the English branches being the only requisition. 



METHODS OF INSTRUCTION. 

The instruction in the Primary Department is based on the inductive and 
objective methods, classes having objects presented which are studied 
analytically. Julia McWright's Nature Readers have been introduced, where 
life is seen in its natural development. Practical application of the "natural 
method*' and the facts obtained from the Readers is made in conversational 
lessons. The language lessons embrace Memory Lessons, Dictation exercises, 
Stories read for Reproduction, Exercises in Letter Writing, Word Pictures 
and Composition Writing. Especial attention is given to Arithmetic and the 
analysis of problems. History and Geography are taught with the aid of 
maps, books of reference and the best text-books. Information Lessons or 
elementary science studies in Natural History teach the classes to observe 
and to make careful note of the objects of the animal, plant and mineral 
kingdoms. The method of study consists chiefly in examination of leaves, 
rocks and insects. Tlie Prang Course of Form Study and Drawing including 



48 



WILLIAMSPORT DICKINSON SEMINARY. 



a series of exercises with suitable models is studied. During the present 
year instruction in a systematic course of Voice Culture has been given to 
the pupils of this department by the teacher of Vocal Music. 

In Elementary Arithmetic, Grammar and Geography, the catechetical 
method is largely employed, but in Higher English tlie same course is 
adopted which prevails in the more advanced branches of study. The pupil 
is taught to study the text-book by topics rather than by sentences or para- 
graphs, and encouraged in the lecture room to give the substance of what he 
has learned, in his own language. In this manner, while he is adding to his 
store of knowledge, he is enlarging his vocabulary, and while he is evolving 
principles and acquiring facts, he is increasing his power of expression, and 
thus unconsciously, it may be, but nevertheless surely, he lays the foundations 
of an easy and concise style of composition. 

In English Literature, the origin of the English language and the growth 
of the literature are carefully traced. In this work the most interesting facts 
in the lives of the best authors and their principal productions are brought 
under review. 

Instruction in Mental Science covers the second and third terms of the 
Junior year. It embodies definitions of the mental faculties, and careful 
analyses of intellectual processes, with a brief history of the science, the main 
purpose being to stimulate the Student to think and investigate for himself. 

Ethics, Logic and Political Economy are taught in the Senior year. Text- 
books are used and daily recitations are required. Class inquiries and dis- 
cussions are encouraged, and familiar lectures are given from time to time by 
the teacher. 

NATURAL SCIENCE. 

In the department of Natural Science, the underlying aim is to teach the 
Student to think and observe for himself, and at the same time to give him 
such a fund of practical knowledge as will fit him for the active duties of life. 
In all the branches the text book is used as a means to gain a knowledge of 
topics rather than to be studied as an end in itself, and as far as possible the 
Student is led to the study of the objects themselves. JNo pains are spared to 
cultivate habits of clear, accurate and systematic thought and expression. 

Geology is taken during the first term of the Senior year. A practical 
knowledge of the common rocks and minerals is acquired, and excursions are 
made to quarries and regions which illustrate various geological formations. 
During the past year the class made surveys of the Lower Helderberg lime- 
stone quarries east of this city, the Chemung building stone quarries on the 
north, a section through North Bald Eagle Mountain into Mosquito Valley, 
comprising four members of the Silurian, and colored sections, drawn to a 
scale, were made of each place visited. Each Student made a written report 
and collected characteristic specimens of rocks and fossils. Seven different 
geological formations, fossil bearing, are admirably illustrated by outcrops 
within a few miles of the Seminary. 

Zoology occupies the first term of the Senior year. The work, during the 
first half of the term, consists of acquiring a knowledge of the structure of 



\^

the principal classes of the several sub-kingdoms, while during the last half 
the comparative anatomy and physiology of the animal kingdom is taken up, 
and the Student is led to appreciate the finely graded relationship that exists 
between the classes. Orton's text-book is used and as much laboratory work 
is introduced as is practicable. Tliis year the class studied a mussel, cray^ 
fish, fly, grasshopper, crab and a fish. 

Chemistry occupies the second and third terms of the Senior year. The 
principles of the atomic theory are thoroughly taught by lectures. There is 
constant practice in writing chemical equations, and throughout the Course 
the main facts are illustrated by experiment. During the third term, in 
addition to the Course in General Chemistry, the class take a Course in 
Qualitative Analysis. 

Physics embraces two terms of the Junior year. Mechanics, Sound, and 
Heat are taken in the Fall term ; and Optics, Electricity, and Magnetism in 
the Winter. The principles and laws are illustrated as far as practicable by 
apparatus. The relation between the different branches is held strongly 
before the mind, and practical questions, drawn from every-day life, are con- 
stantly brought forward to teach the Student to apply the principles learned 
in the text-book. 

In Botany, after a few weeks of work in Gray's School and Field Book, 
the Student goes directly to the plant, analysis occupying the remainder of 
the term. An herbarium is collected and prepared by each member of the 

class. 

Lectures are given from time to time upon subjects of interest to the 
department. 

ANCIENT LANGUAGES. 

In the departments of Greek and Latin, scrupulous attention is given to 
the grammatical structure of these languages, their relation to English, the 
illustration and application of principles, accurate translation, and to the 
literary significance of each author studied It is aimed to give to the classics 
by these means their proper place as an aid to expression, to a thorough 
knowledge of our own language and to the pursuit of other languages, as 
well as to afford the usual mental discipline. Careful attention is also given 
to those preparing for college or for professional study.

During first year in German, classes complete Otis' Elementary Grammar, 
(edition of 1890,) as far as the subject of Syntax, with study of Irregular Verbs, 
committing to memory all conversations, proverbs and selections. Exercises 
are prepared in German script with careful attention to the idiom of the 
language. The first five chapters of Stern's Studien und Plauderien are used 
as the basis of conversation lessons and, during spring, one of works men- 
tioned under list of text-books is read. In second year Syntax of Otis Gram- 
mar is completed with frequent dictation exercises. Schrakamp'sErzahlungen 
aus der Deutschen Geschichte is studied much of text being memorized. The 
spring term is given to a study of Schiller's Works.

During first year in French, classes complete Keetels' Grammar tj^rough 
subject of Irregular Verbs, careful attention being given, in the preparation 
of all exercises, to the idiom of the language. Sauveur's Causeries avec mes 
Eleves is used as basis for conversational forms many short extracts being 
committed to memory. During Spring Term some work mentioned under 
text-books is read with a study of first six of La Fontaines' Fables. In second 
year Grammar work is completed and Rougemonts La France is studied 
t02:ether with some French classic. 

Literature exercises are given twice monthly in both languages throughout 
the course with weekly object, history, and geography lessons based upon the 
best of charts and maps. Standard selections are frequently memorized and 
a study of synonyms is also made. 

MATHEMATICS. 



The Course in Mathematics is coextensive with that in the majority of our 
best colleges. Although the study is considered as chiefly disciplinary, the 
aim throughout the Course is to acquaint the Student with the instruments in 
most familiar use by the practical scientists and mathematicians of the day, as 
well as to strengthen his mental faculties and increase his logical acumen. 
At the commencement of each subject, a familiar lecture is given on its history 
and practical utility. 

Algebra is begun, the Student being led slowly through the rudiments, and 
made to review the fundamentals daily. After two terms spent in studying 
the elements, the University Algebra is taken up at the Calculus of Radicals, 
and continued through Quadratics, Proportions, Permutations and Com- 
binations, Progressions, Identical Equations, Decomposition of Fractions, 
Residual Formula, Newton's Binomial Theorem, Method of Indeterminate 
Coefficients, Reversion of Series, Logarithms, Rule of Des Cartes, Cardan's 
Solution of Cubic Equations, and Sturm's Theorem. The aim of the in- 
struction in advanced Algebra is to free the Student from his previous 
dependence upon the text-book, and to<)ultivate ability and taste for original 
mathematical work. Great stress is laid upon mathematical generalization 
and the concise demonstration of principles. 

The Course in Geometry covers seven books, embracing both the Plane 
and Solid Geometry. The demonstrations are partly oral and partly written, 
the written exercises being deemed a valuable aid to the cultivation of 
accuracy of thought and expression. Plane Trigonometry is taken entire, and 
the class is exercised in the solution of practical problems. In surveying, the 
Theory and Practice are combined. The class is conveniently divided, 'and 
each division in turn is taken by the teacher into the field for practical work. 
Plots of the surveys made are drawn, and, together with the computations, 
are submitted to the teacher for inspection. 

One term is spent in Analytical Geometry, completing the Cartesian 
Method of Coordinates, the Method of Polar Coordinates, and the Trans- 
formation of Coordinates. To Calculus two terms are given, covering, in the 
Differental Calculus, the Differentiation of Functions of a Single Variable, 
Maclaurin's and Taylor's Theorems, together with the deduction of the 



N 



Binomial Theorem and the Theory of Logarithms, the Evaluation of Inde- 
terminate Forms, and the Maxima and Minima of Functions of a Single 
Variable ; and in the Integral Calculus, the Integration of all the Elementary 
Forms. 

HISTORY AND RHETORIC. 

In the study of History, the object is to familiarize the Student with the 
main facts and principles, thus forming a foundation on which to build by 
future reading and investigation. To this end the text-book is thoroughly 
studied in connection with a Manual of Classical Antiquities and an Atlas, 
while at the same time the Student is encouraged to consult other authorities 
and bring in additional matter bearing on the subject. Recitation is by the 
analytical and topical methods. 

Special attention is given to instruction in Rhetoric, on account of its 
great value to the Student. The principles of good writing are studied and 
analyzed with a view to their practical application. 

During the last term much of the time is devoted to original productions 
in the various departments of literary composition, on themes assigned by 
the teacher. These productions are read before the class, where general 
criticisms are offered, after which they are handed to the teacher for more 
careful correction.

General Information. 



WILLIAMSrORT DICKINSON SEMINARY 

Is an institution of high grade, with ample facilities for giving young 
ladies and gentlemen a superior education. It is organized upon the 
plans which have been approved by long experience, and adopted by 
the best schools in this country, embracing all modern a[)pliances in 
means and methods of instruction. It was founded in 1848, and is 
regularly chartered by the Legislature of the State of Pennsylvania, 
and authorized to confer degrees upon those who complete the pre- 
scribed Courses of Study. 

The Seminary is under the patronage of the Central Pennsylvania 
Conference, being owned and practically managed by the Preachers' 
Aid Society. As this investment was rather to promote the impor- 
tant work of higher Christian education than to make money, the 
paramount purpose is to combine thorough instruction and careful 
moral training with the comforts of a good home, at fhe lowest pos- 
sible rates. 

LOCATION. 

Willliamsport is one of the most beautiful and healthful places in 
the State. It has never been subject to epidemics of any kind. Many 
coming to the school in poor health have returned fully restored. The 
city is situated on the West Branch of the Susquehanna lliver, has 
a population of thirty thousand, is widely known for its intelligence, 
its enterprise, the taste displayed in the character of its public build- 
ings and private residences, and the moral appliances with which it 
is furnished. In small towns and villages the facilities for culture — 
intellectual as well as aesthetic and moral — are generally limited, rarely 
reaching beyond the institution itself, and hence student life must 
become monotonous, lacking the inspiration which a larger place with 
wider opportunities affords. Thirty-six churches, an active temper- 
ance organization, and a branck of the Young Men's Christian Asso- 



bi

( ; 



ciation, embracing many of the most earnest Christians in the com- 
munity, with a large library free to al], and accessible at all times, 
indicate some of the religious influences brought to bear upon the 
young in Williamsport. 

BUILDINGS. 

The buildings occupy an eminence overlooking the city, and are 
surrounded by beautiful shade trees, while the grounds contain five 
acres, affording ample room for exercise and play. They are hr'ick, 
heated by steam, provided with fire escapes and supplied liiiuugiiuut 
with pure mountain water, ^ 

Hereafter the buildings will be lighted throughout with electrical 
incandescent light. The system adopted embodies the latest improve- 
ments in generating and utilizing electricity for illuminating purposes 
and insures entire safety from fire or shock, so that the wires may be 
handled without danger. The value of an illuminant which, consum- 
ing no oxygen, leaves the air perfectly pure and at the same time fur- 
nishes abundant light, cannot be over-estimated. Each student's room 
is supplied with a sixteen-candle power lamp and the corridors are 
lighted from dark until daylight. 

The main edifice, recently rebuilt and improved, compares favora- 
bly with the best school buildings in the country, and the new Chapel 
is the most attractive public hall in the city. 

Both departments are furnished with bath rooms and all modern 
appliances for comfort, and in the entire arrangement of the build- 
ings great care has been taken for the convenience and health of the 
occupants. 

The ladies' apartments are entirely separate from the others, and 
there is no association of the sexes hut in the presence of their 
instructors. The happy influence, mutually exerted, in their slight 
association in the recitation room, at the table, and in the public exer- 
cises in the Chapel, is to be seen in the cultivation of a cheerful and 
animated disposition, in the formation of good habits and manners, 
in ardent devotion to study, and in the attainment of high moral 
character. These, with many other valuable results, have established 
the fact that the best plan for a school is, according to the evident 
design of Providence in the constitution of society, on the basis of a 
well-regulated Christian family. The members of the Facidty live 
in the huildiyig, eat at the same tables, and have constant oversight 
of all the Students, 



\ 



PHYSICAL HEALTH. 

Recognizing the importance of physical culture, ample provision 
is made for appropriate athletic sports, as well as for systematic 
physical development. A military company is organized, with drill 
during recreation hours. 

A gymnasium, fnrty by sixty feet, has been erected and furnished 

for the use of all Students, under proper regulation, for \slih ]i jlfiy 
cenib per lorm will he charged. The gentlemen are required to ex- 
ercise in tlui gvtnn.i-inris who do not take military Ht ill 

Suitable exercise is provided for the ladies in calisthenics and 
light gymnastics, under the direction of a competent teacher. All 
the ladies are required to participate in these exercises, unless ex- 
cused upon a physician's certificate. 

Lectures on health will also be given from time to time, by an 
eminent physician. 

ROOMS AND FURNITURE. 

The rooms are larger than in most boarding schools, the ladies' 
being 16x13 feet, and the gentlemen's 20x9^ feet. They are all 
furnished with bedstead, mattress, table, chairs, ward-robe, wash- 
stand and crockery ; the ladies' with bed-spring and dressing-bureau, 
and if desired, any room will be entirely furnished ; but Students may 
provide their own sheets, (for double beds,) pillows, pillow cases, 
blankets, counterpanes, carpets and mirrors and thus lessen the 
expense. 

EXPENSES.

English and Penmanship. There are no extras whatever, except 
for Book- Keeping, Ornamental Branches and Modern Languages, the 
charges for which are specifically staled elsewhere. 

We desire to emphasize this statement, because some schools, 
whose advertised rates are higher than ours, increase the expenses 
still more by numerous '* extras/' 

1^^ We ask those who are seeking education for themselves, and 
parents who contemplate sending their children to a boarding school, 
to carefully note the fact that we furnisii everything embraced in a 
thoroughly. equipped school, with all the comforts of a good home, 
including a large, airy, and CAmipUtely furnished room, in a beautiful 
^nd healthful lo cation, a t the low rate of $225.40 per year, in courses 
of study which prepare the Student for business, for professional life, 
or for the lower or higher classes in college ; or, if thej prefer to 
furnish their own rooms with bed clothes, mirrors and carpet, 
for $212.40 in Classical Studies, and $204.40 in Common English. 

Persons applying for rooms will please state whether they wish 
them furnished entirely or in part. 

PAYMENTS. 

Term bills are payaWe in advance, one-half at opening and the 
balance at the middle of the term. 

Twenty-five cents will be added to the ordinary rate per week for 
board, washing and room, when Students attend a part of a term. 
No reduction in tuition for less than half a term, nor for furnished 
room for less than a term. 

Extra washing, ordinary pieces, 50 cents per dozen ; ladies' plain 
gowns, 20 cents each. Meals carried to rooms, 10 cents each, or '2b 
cents per day. 

When students are called away by sickness or providential neces- 
sity, moneys advanced will be returned. Students dismissed or 
leaving without the approval of the President may be charged for the 
full term. 

Deduction for absence is made on recommendation of the Presi- 
dent to the Treasurer. No reduction for board or tuition for absence 
of two weeks or less at the beginning, or the last four weeks before 
the close of the term. 

Five dollars must be deposited with the Treasurer on entering, to 
cover damages that the Student may do to room or other property. 









This will be returned when the Student leaves, but not before, in case 
no injury has been done. Any Student rooming alone will be charged 
$8 extra per term. 

Day scholars will be charged from $7.00 to $14.00 per term of 
twelve weeks, according to the studies they pursue. No reduction 
in tuition for less than half a term. 

TERMS AND VACATIONS. 

The Seminary year is divided into three terms, as follows : 
Fall Term — 16 Weeks. Begins Monday, September 1st, 1890. 
Ends December 22d. Vacation, two weeks. 

Winter Term— 12 Weeks. Begins Monday, January 5th, 1891. 
Ends March 31st. No vacation. 

Spring Term— 12 Weeks. Begins Monday, March 30th, 1891. 
Ends June 18th. Vacation, ten weeks. 

ADMISSION. 

Pupils of good moral character will be received at any time, for 
a single term or longer period. 

Must arrange bills with the Trealsurer before attending recitations. 

Must take at least four studies, unless excused by the Faculty. 

Must register name and church, and agree to comply with all 
rules and regulations of the School. 

Each Student will be considered a member of the Institution until 
due notice shall have been given of intention to leave and permission 
obtained of the President. 

BOARDING. 

This department is under the general direction of the President, 
but an experienced Steward and a thoroughly competent Matron 
have immediate charge. The department commends itself by clean- 
liness, abundance of supply, excellence of quality, good cooking, and 
adaptation to health. 

DISCIPLINE. 

The discipline is firm, but mild and impartial. While every 
encouragement will be given to the orderly and studious, and due 
allowance be made for youthful indiscretion, yet the lawless and 
refractory cannot long remain among us.

APPARATUS. 

The Seminary is furnished with a collection of apparatus, together 
with full sets of Globes, Maps and Charts, a Cabinet of Minerals, and 
a large supply of Chemical and Laboratory Utensils, thus affording 
facility for illustration and experiment. 

Recent additions to Apparatus and Collections : 

In Physiology — 

Alcoholic specimen of the Human Heart, Brain, Stomach, Kidneys 
and Intestines, from J. A. C. Clarkson, M. D. 

The following Bock Steger Models : 



Organs of Hearing, presented by the Physiology Class of 1885. 

Organs of Voice, presented by the Physiology Class of 1886. 

Organs of Respiration, presented by the Physiology Class of 1887.

zine of History and Biography and Hall's Arctic Exploration, by 
Mrs. William W. Cooper, of Washington, D. C. 

Hon. R. J. C. Walker and Hon. Henry C. McCormick have largely 
increased our facilities by valuable contributions to our Reference 
Library. 

MERIT AND DEMERIT. 



A daily record is kept of all the exercises of the School, from 
which record the Students will be graded. A record of demerits is 
also kept. Tardiness, unexcused absences from required exercises, 



4^ 



and all disorderly conduct, will subject the Student to demerit marks. 
Ten such marks bring a private reproof before the P^'aculty ; twenty 
a public reprimand before the whole school, and thirty may send the 
offender away. Sessional reports are sent to parents. 

RELIGIOUS CHARACTER. 

Dickinson Seminary is not sectarian in any sense, but it is 
positively and emphatically Christian in its administration and work. 
By combining practical Christian teaching with thorough intellectual 
training, under the personal supervision of Christian men and women, 
especially qualified by education and experience, the school has 
established a reputation among literary institutions and won the 
confidence of the public in a degree of which its friends and patrons 
may be justly proud. 

RELIGIOUS SERVICES. 

Every Student is required to attend religious services in the Chapel 
daily, as well as public worship morning and evening every Sabbath, 
at such place as pareyits or guardians may designate^ the President 
assenting. 

A Bible reading, conducted by the President, will be substituted 
for the evening service once a month or oftener, as may be deemed 
proper. 

N. B. — Each Student must be supplied with a Bible, to be read, 
loithoiit note or sectarian conmient^ in the services of the Chapel. 
The whole school read in concert. 

A general experience meeting is held every Sabbath at half-past 
eight A. M., and generally a service of song at six P. M., continuing 
one hour. Also, a prayer meeting for the ladies and gentlemen on 
Thursday evenings. Attendance upon these social services is optional 
with the Students. 

RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS. 

A Young Womans' Foreign Missionary Society has been in suc- 
cessful operation for several years. This society acquires and 
diffuses missionary intelligence, creates and maintains an interest in 
the work of the General Society and prepares its members for 
efficient service as centers of Christian influence at their homes when 
school days are ended. It has largely contributed to the education 
of a missionary for India.

WILLIAMSPORT DICKINSON SEMINARY. 



Several circles of the '' King's Daughters " are actively engaged 
in the King's work in the school, and are a manifest power for good- 

A '' Temperance and Pure Speech Society " recently organized 
has awakened much interest among the young men, and promises to 
be a potent factor on the side of manliness and godliness in the 
future. 

LITERARY EXERCISES. 

In addition to class work, public exercises are held in \hQ Seminary 
Chapel every Friday evening, at which the more advanced Students 
read essays or deliver original speeches, interspersed with vocal or 
instrumental music, furnished by the Music Department. 

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

There are three flourishing Literary Societies connected with the 
Seminary— the l^elles Lettres, the Gamma Epsilon and the Tripartite 
Union. The first two are in the gentlemen's, and the last in the 
ladies' department. Each has a well furnished hall and a judiciously 
selected library, aggregating more than two thousand volumes. 
Each i3repares and reads a paper in the Chapel once in three weeks, 
in connection with other literary exercises, thus furnishing in- 
spiration to intellectual culture, ys well as entertainhient for the 
Students and the public. 

HOME f:^atures. 

The Seminary is a boarding school of the highest grade, taking 
rank among the very be^t, with superior appointments and ap- 
pliances for the health and culture of its Students. It is also a well- 
ordered home. First of all, the President and his family reside in 
the building, forming a part of the school and are always accessible 
to all its members. The wife of the President entertains the Young 
Womans' Missionary Society and the Young Men's Temperance and 
Pure Speech Society on separate evenings, once a month, in her 
apartments, and occasionally receives the entire school in her parlors, 
while in times of sickness she visits the young ladies in their rooms, 
giving such suggestions and directions as the experience of a mother 
may supply. Again, the members of the Faculty are so distributed 
throughout the building as to be readily accessible at any time for 
such help as the Students may desire outside of the recitation room. 
Again, recognizing the value of social culture as a factor in prepara-

tion for a useful life, the President and Faculty give a formal 
reception once each term to the whole school in the beautiful Chapel, 
which for the occasion is transformed into an attractive drawing 
room, while weekly informal ''socials," continuing from thirty 
minutes to an hour, after the public Friday evening entertainments, 
relieve the monotony of routine work, cultivate a cheerful spirit and 
meet the natural desire for social pleasures. In these and all 
practicable ways an appeal is made to the higher elements in the 
nature; mutual interest inspires mutual respect; opportunity is 
afforded to study character, and the school becomes a pleasant and 
safe Christian home as well as a place for careful mental and moral 
training. 

INSTRUCTION. 

Our methods are modern, and adapted to the need of the 
Students. No pains are spared to give thorough, practical and 
scholarly training in all the departments by teachers of superior 
attainments and experience. Besides instruction in connection with 
the text-book, lectures illustrated by experiments are given from 
time to time. 

Students in Music have opportunity to hear distinguished artists, 
which is of great advantage in acquiring a correct taste, as also in 
enlarging their knowledge. In addition to frequent Organ Uecitals 
by musicians of recognized ability, Sherwood and Mme. Rive-King 
gave concerts to which our Music pupils were admitted at reduced 
rates during the present year. 

SPECIAL LECTURES. 

Special lectures in the form of familiar talks will be given each 
term by the President. These lectures will cover the discussion of 
social ethics, the care of health, how to eat, how to work, how to 
play, how to rest, current literature and current events in relation to 
school life, with other subjects which may be helpful to young people 
who wish to make the most of opportunity. 

The President will also give a course of lectures to young men 
preparing for the ministry, covering such themes as may be of value 
to them as preachers, as pastors and as citizens. 

YOUNG LADIES. 

Constant and systematic efforts are made looking toward the 
general culture of the young ladies committed to our care. The lady

members of the Faculty take personal interest in all things pertain- 
ing to their welfare and are intimately associated with them in 
recreation hours. 

Every Saturday short lectures are given by the Preceptress to all 
young ladies on social culture, literature, art and kindred topics. 
During the past year character studies have been made of our 
modern painters, and also of the celebrated women of the French 
Kevolution. During the coming year, in addition to these lectures, 
the ladies of the Senior class will meet the Preceptress semi-monthly 
for purposes of literary criticism. 

SCHOLARSHIPS. 



Mr. DeWitt Bodine, of Ilughesville, Pa., an alumnus of the 
Seminary, has the honor of founding the first full scholarship in this 
Institution. It is to be filled from the public schools of Hughesville 
by competitive examinations and is designated as 

The DeWitt Bodine Scholarship. 

It pays all expenses of board, tuition, etc., in any regular course 
of study. 

Who will imitate Mr. Bodine's example ? Are there not generous 
men and women among our alumni and friends ready to invest a 
portion of their wealth where it will be secure and work for God for 
ever? A comparatively small sum will do a large work. The in- 
terest on a thousand dollars, in many instances, will supplement the 
meager resources of a worthy young man or woman whom God has 
given large ability but from whom fortune has withheld the means 
to develop it. This is especially true of those who are called into 
the ministry or into missionary work. Any sum will help, and three 
thousand dollars will found a ministry or .missionary scholarship in 
this Institution and maintain it perpetually. 

OUTFIT. 

The gentlemen should be provided with durable clothing, heavy 
boots or shoes, an umbrella, and a pair of slippers to be worn in the 
room. The ladies must be supplied with thick walking tshoes, an 
umbrella, India rubber overshoes, water-proof cloak and'^a suit for 
exercise in calisthenics and light gymnastics. Their attire for 
general use should be neat and simple, but not elegant or expensive. 
All wearing apparel must be plainly marked with full name of the 



/ 







owner. We suggest that in addition to towels, napkins and napkin 
ring, each pupil bring a knife, fork and spoon, /or icse in case of 
sicfc7iess. 

A WORD TO PARENTS. 

1. B®"Try to have your children here on the first day of the 
term, but not before^ as we shall not be ready to receive them. The 
classes are formed on the second day, and it will be better for all con- 
cerned, liial the StudLiit start regularly with his class. 

2. If possible, do not call them away during the session. 
Absence, if only for a few days, disarranges the class, and is 
generally the beginning of irregularity on the part of the scholar. 

3. Do not allow your children to leave the School before the ex- 
aminations, unless it cannot be avoided. Serious inconvenience to all 
concerned often arises from a neglect of this caution. 

4. Supply them very sparingly with spending money. Parents 
cannot be too cautious on this point. 

5. Select for your child one of the instructors as a patron, to 
distribute his funds. In this way a more judicious use of your money 

4 

will be made, and your child will be kept from many temptations. 

Jg^^Students not boarding in the Institution must observe the 
following rules : 

1. Attend daily prayers, unless excused. 

2. Must spend the intervals between recitations in the Study Hall. 

3. Must account for all absence by written excuse without delay, 
time and number of recitations being specified. 

4. Must not visit the rooms of boarders without permission. 

MEANS OF ACCESS. 

Williamsport is eight and a half hours from New York, six hours 
from Philadelphia, nine hours from Pittsburgh, six hours from 
Baltimore, three hours from Ilarrisburg, and three hours from 
Elmira, and is reached directly by the Pennsylvania, the Philadel- 
phia and Reading, the Northern Central and the Philadelphia and 
Erie Railroads, which pass through the city, and as these have con^ 
nections directly with all the great railroads, is readily accessibly 
from all q^uarters.

GRADUATES AND FORMER STUDENTS. 

It may safely be estimated that from eight to ten thousand persons 
have received Academic instruction, covering from one to three years, 
in Williamsport Dickinson Seminar}'-, while five hundred and five 
have completed the prescribed curriculum, graduating with the 
degrees the Institution confers. We desire to bring all these into 
active sympathy and co-operation with their Ahna Mater, and hence 
we ask all persons to whom this notice may come, who have been 
Students here, to send us their address, with any information con- 
cerning their personal history that may be of general interest, as we 
wish to compile a complete catalogue of all the Students now living. 

— There is a general meeting of the Alumni every year, the day before 
Commencement. We extend a most cordial invitation to all old 
Students to attend the meeting this year, which will be held June 
18th, in the afternoon and evening. If you cannot come, let us hear 
from you by letter. 

And now, may I not ask you to aid in enlarging the sphere and 
increasing the power of our Alma Mater! You can do much in 
many ways, but you can at least direct those looking for a good 
Boarding School to ours, or send me their address on a postal card. 
Carry the Seminary in your heart. She is doing a worthy work, and 
earnestly asks her sons and daughters to help her.

That the public may form an intelligent opinion of the estimation 
in which the Institution is held by those who have had opportunity 
to judge of its management and practical work, we publish some 
testimonials recently received from our friends and patrons. 

Hughesville, Pa., April 29, 1889. 
Eev. E, J. Gray, D. D., President DlcMnsou Seminary : 

Dear Sm— Your invitation to the patrons of Dickinson to express their 
opinions covers so much detail that it will be difficult to condense quite as 
much as is necessary. My opinions are formed from rather frequent visits to 
Dickinson Seminary, from the experience of m}^ daughter as one of your 
students and an acquaintance with some of your Faculty, gained by my visits, 
together with the opportunity of hearing the unrestrained expressions of 
students, and my conclusions are as follows : The Seminary has a cheerful, 
attractive atmosphere about it, with an entire absence of any appearance of 
physical restraint. It is so pleasantlv warmed by your steam heating system 
in cool weather that I have noticed, always, that it was very thoroughly 
ventilated and full of fresh, pure air. Having taken meals with the students 
quite a number of times, I have always enjoyed the table service and bill of 
fare; the homelike intercourse at the table I consider quite a desirable 
feature. I have been fully satisfied with the system of teaching which aims 
to have the students learn to understand what they are taught rather than to 
commit it to memory merely, so as to get through a recitation. The system 
of government that appeals to the honor and conscience of the pupils is 
certainly preparing them for the decision of actual questions of life, better 
than any system of physical restraint could possibly do, and at the same time 
secures a very much higher tone in the school ; above all, the grand work that 
is done in leading the students "up through nature to nature's God," so as to 
secure their conversion is, to my mind, your crowning success. 

I do not know of any institution making a better record for itself than 
Dickinson Seminary, and I hope it may secure such financial aid from time to 
time as shall enable it to very much increase its accommodations. 

Very truly yours, 

Bknj. G. Welch, 
General Manager of Williamsport & North Branch R. K. Co. 

Cumberland, Md., May, 1889. 
My eldest daughter graduated from Williamsport Dickinson Seminary in 
1886. From my knowledge of the school, I do not hesitate to recommend it 
as one of the best institutions in our church. As a home for young ladies, 
both for its comforts and healthfulness, I know of none superior. The 
discipline is all any one could ask, and the facilities for mental and moral 
culture are of a high order, suited to those seeking higher education. The 
President, Rev. E. J. Gray, D. D., I have known intimately for many years, 
and he has qualities which eminently fit him for the responsible position 
which he holds. ^_

Philipsburg, Pa., May, 1889. 
My judgment of Williamsport Dickinson Seminary, based on knowledge 
derived from several years' residence in close proximity to the institution, and 
also from tv^7o sons who have been students in the school, is, that for 
opportunity for mental and moral culture, for hcalthfulness, for home comforts 
and especially for discipline, the Seminary is worthy my most earnest com- 
mendation. 

J. H. McGakkah, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Bloomsburg, Pa., May 7, 1889. 
f luru^^ watched for years, with pleasure, the steady growth and prosperity 
ot Williamsport Dickinson Seminary under your excellent management I 
have been impressed with its kind, but lirm discipline, the great opportunities 
tor intellectual and moral improvement, and the delightful home feeling and 
influence that seem to unite the Faculty and students and pervade the entire 
institution. I regard it as one of the best schools of the kind in the country 
and in every way worthy of the confidence and patronage of the Christian 
. public. This knowledge I obtained from personal observation as a resident 
pastor among the Faculty and students. 

John Donahue, 
P. E. Danville District, Central Pa. Conference. 

Harrisburg, Pa., May 8, 1889. 
Three of my children have attended Dickinson Seminary for a period 
aggregating between six and seven years. As regards everything that o-oes to 
make up a first-class school of the kind, I doubt if it is surpassed by any 
school in the country, and there are very few its equal. I can heartily recom-' 
mend it to parents and others having children to educate. 

B. F. Stevens, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Canton, Pa., May G, 1889. 
I take great pleasure in bearing testimony to the high moral tone and good 
discipline of Dickinson Seminary. ^ 

I am convinced that the degree of advancement is fully equal to the standard 
in other schools of equal grade. 

My information is obtained from general observation, and from having a 
daughter in attendance for over a year just closed. 

Geoege a. Guernsey, Bank Cashier.

Greenville, Pa., May 3, 1889. 

I take pleasure in saying that, from personal observation during the week 
I spent in Williamsport, and from information gathered from my daughters 
and others, I think the Williamsport Dickinson Seminary an excellent school. 
You have attained a very high grade in the two essentials of advanced edu- 
cation, a careful discipline and thorough work. 

H. E. Johnson, 
Pastor M. E. Church, Pittsburg Conference. 

Howard, Pa., May 2, 1889. 
I can heartily recommend Dickinson Seminary to any young person desir- 
ing a higher education. 

My knowledge of the character of the work done at your school is per- 
sonal, having spent four school years there as a student. The method of 
instruction adopted by the President is, in my judgment, the best. 

The best feature is, this institution is an all round educator, physical, 
mental and moral, and all receive due attention. 

George E. King, 
Class '76, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Greenland, W. Va., April 30, 1889. 
Having at one time been a student of Dickinson Seminary, recently a 
visitor, also a patron, it seems to me that Xlie home-like arrangements of the 
buildings and management, being so much after the order of a family, makes 
this institution one to be highly prized by its patrons. We think also its 
Faculty will compare favorably with any other school of like grade, and the 
students become greatly attached to the place. 

John L. Barb, Farmer. 

Reading, Pa., May 24, 1889. 
Having visited the Seminary during a three years' course of my daughter, 
thus coming in contact with the Faculty and the outlined discipline of the 
school, one of the many good features tliat impressed me most forcibly was 
the religious influence that pervaded the entire school and the home-like 
association between Faculty and students. 

I can commend it to those seeking a place for co-education. 

W. H. SiiiCK, Stove Manufacturer. 

Driftwood, Pa., May 25, 1889. 
I take pleasure in stating from my observation and knowledge of your 
school, having had three children in attendance, that I believe the location 
and general surroundings of your school to be the most healthful of any simi- 
lar institution in Pennsylvania. I admire your discipline and cordially ap- 
prove of your method of instruction, believing your school the most home- 
like to the pupil of any in the State. 

G. W. Huntley. 

Williamsport, Pa., May 28, 1889. 
From frequent observation and intercourse with the students I am led to 
believe the school to be in good condition, and under Dr. Gray and his pres- 
ent Faculty to be doing as good work as any school of its grade in the coun- 
try. It certainly is well-furnished with teachers and all other facilities, and 
ought to commend itself to all our people. 

M. L. Ganoe, 
Pastor Mulberry Street M. E. Church. 

Aberdeen, Harford County, Md., May 29, 1889. 
It is a pleasure to give cordial commendation to your school, especially 
as relating to discipline, hcalthfulness and facilities for mental improvement. 
My brother and sister were in your care. 

Very sincerely yours, 

Henry C. Smith, of Baltimore Conference.

Airville, York Co., Pa., May 22, 1889. 

I was a student in Williamsport Dickinson Seminary three years, com- 
pleting the chissical course in 18G2. My ehlest daughter graduated there in 
1887. A son and daughter are now there attending school. Of course I have 
some knowledge of the school. It certainly has done excellent work all 
along, and seems to be doing still better as the years go on. The buildings 
are pleasant and comfortable, and good health generally prevails in the in- 
stitution. I regard it an excellent school for mental and moral culture. 

8. A. Ckeveling, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Espy, Pa., May 31, 1889. 

I have been a patron and close observer of Williamsport Dickinson Semi- 
nary for two years, and am satisfied that it is a school of superior advantages, 
possessing healthful ness and home-like comforts, while its facilities for men- 
tal and moral culture, including music and painting, are excellent. I believe 
it is the constant aim and faithful endeavor of the President and Faculty to 
secure the very best results for all the students. The government and disci- 
pline meet with my liearty approval. 

I H. Mallalieu, Pastor of M. E. Church. 

Williamsport, May 27, 1889. 

I finished my preparation for college at Williamsport Dickinson Seminary. 
I learned more at the Seminary in one year than I had at other schools in 
two. I consider it to be one of the very best institutions of learning of its 
grade in the State. Its moral and religious intluences are of the best. 

T. M. B. Hicks, Lawyer. 



S 




Selinsgrove, Pa., May 10, 1889. 
It affords me great pleasure to bear testimony to the high character and 
thorough work of Williamsport Dickinson Seminary. Having been a student 
in the institution, I am enabled to speak from personal knowledge. The 
school embodies all the essential features of a Christian home. Its location 
and sanitary equipments insure its healthfulness, while its facilities for mental 
and moral culture are of such character as to secure to students the largest 
and best results. Parents need not hesitate to commit their children to its 
wholesome and stimulating discipline. 

G. MuKRAY Klepfek, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Stewartstown, Pa., May 2, 1889. 
Having had two daughters graduated at the Williamsport Dickinson 
Seminary, I think I can speak understandingly in regard to the merits of 
the school. I can, therefore, conscientiously^ecommend it to those who may 
be seeking an education, or those who may have children to educate, as an 
institution where every effort is made, and generally successful, to develop 
the physical, mental and moral nature of its pupils. 

A. B. HooYEN, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Harvey ville. Pa., May 14, 1889. 
Having had two sons educated at this school, I would earnestly recom- 
mend Williamsport Dickinson Seminary to parents having children to edu- 
cate, or any others desirous of a thorough education, because of its facilities 
for mental and moral culture, and for its home comforts and healthfulness. 

A. N. Harvey, Merchant. 

Darlington, Hereford Co., Md., May 14, 1889. 
My son attended the Dickinson Seminary. I consider the location healtful, 
accommodations good, discipline kindly and conscientious, and I know of no 
school that stands higher for mental and moral culture. 

D. E. Tjiomas, Farmer. 



Reading, Pa., May, 1889. 

It affords me pleasure to bear testimony to the home comforts, discipline, 
healthfulness and facilities for mental and moral culture afforded by Wil- 
liamsport Dickinson Seminary. My knowledge is positive, my daughter 
having been a student in the school for three years, and my wife having 
been to see the institution herself. I can heartily recommend the school to 
others. 

Wilson J. Sterling, Boiler Works. 

Petersburg, Pa., April 30, 1889. 

A student experience of more than three years at Dickinson Seminary 
compels me to tliink highly of her, my Abiia Mater. An Aluminiis of the 
Seminary, afterwards graduated from one of our oldest and best colleges, said 
to the writer that he would not exchange tlie rnental discipline gained through 
class-room drill at llie Seminary for all he afterwards got at college. My wife 
{Aluminm) says : ''The religious influences of the Seminary were excellent." 
My own appreciation of the all-around advantages of the Seminary is mani- 
fest in the fact that when looking out for a school for an only and much 
loved sister, I chose Dickinson Seminary. 

May your excellent school ever be crowded with excellent youna: people. 

C. V. Hartzell, Class '79, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Danville, Pa., May, 1889. 

I most heartily endorse the Seminary all the way through. Three years 
drill there has helped me to do work I could not have done without it. 

G. W. Stevens, Class '81, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Berwick, Pa., May, 1889. 

I very cordially commend Williamsport Dickinson Seminary as an in- 
stitution of learning. My knowledge of the Seminary is personal, being an 
Alumnus of the institution. 

I believe its facilities for mental and moral culture to be unsurpassed by any 
school of like grade in this country. 

Benj. H. Mosser, Class '77, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Northumberland, Pa., May 7, 1889. 

I was a student in Dickinson Seminary from 1877 to 1880. The thorough 
instruction and culture I received have been the great helps in my work, and 
not less important, the school was a good home. The religious influence was 
of the highest character. In the revival of 1879 thirty students were con- 
verted, being all the unconverted boarding students but four. Since entering 
upon my life work I have had abundant opportunity for observing the work 
of the school. The religious and home influences continue, and the efficiency 
of the school in all departments is rapidly increasing. 

J. D. W. Deavor, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Chambersburg, Pa., May 1, 1889. 

During a three years residence in the beautiful city of Williamsport, Pa., 
as pastor of Grace Methodist Episcopal church, and as such a member of the 
Board of Managers of the Preachers' Aid Society, and also of the Conference 
Visiting Committee, it was my privilege often to visit Williamsport Dickinson 
Seminary. As my knowledge of the institution increased relative to its 
location, healthfulness, equipment, discipline, morals, and the excellence and 
thoroughness of the work done in it, my regard and admiration increased. 

I have no hesitancy in pronouncing it one of the very best institutions in 
the State, and cordially commend it to all seeking for their young people the 
advantages of a first-classt^eminary, as admirably adapted to secure the fullest 
realization of their hopes.

^ The one feature which impressed me most while taking the course at

The buildings are ample and contain all the modern improvements for the 
comfort of pupils— in reality it is a home— accessible by rail from all points. 
The curriculum of studies is of a high order and under the excellent

Having spent three years and a half in Dickinson Seminary after I was

was a frequent visitor and was favorably impressed with the management, its 
healthful location, discipline ana low cost of tuition, &c., in comparison with 

other schools of same grade.

Having spent nearly two years in Dickinson Seminary, under the present

Hepburn ville. Pa., May 22, 1889. 

I was a student at the Seminary four years— Class '82— and for home-like 
surroundings, facilities for mental and m.oral training, healthfulness and kind 
parental discipline, it is not surpassed by any school of its class, and equaled 
by few. I recommend the Seminary to any and all parents seeking a school 
where children can get the most good and the least harm. 

Yours truly, 

R. S. Taylok, Pastor M. E. Church.
