Budget Containing the Status of Methodism at the Second Ecumenical Conference of Methodism
			
168         STATUS OF METHODISM AND CHRISTIANITY.

    In my report of Nov. 1891, I showed that 92 pupils were enrolled
in the department the first year, which was increased to 119 in 1890-
91.   In that time six pupils have received diplomas from the Normal
course, while 27 certificates have been granted those completing the
industrial work--6 from carpentry and 21 from sewing.
    The training of the Normal students consists in assigning them to
teach the lower English classes in the English Preparatory Depart-
ment of the University, which teaching is done under the supervision
and criticism of the Normal  Principal.  There is, also, a model class
in Form-study and Drawing with clay-modeling, which is made an
observation class for the Senior Normal students.
    The Carpentry is made as practical as possible, and the sewing
course teaches an approved system of cutting and fitting dresses.
    The instruction is carried on in the Industrial work by a teacher
for each Industry, while the Normal subjects, outside of the classes in
Pedagogics which are taught by the Normal Principal, are pursued in
the regular classes of the University.
    There is a growing appreciation of the necessity for proper pre-
paration for the profession of teaching, and the Normal course is held
in view by many who formerly thought no special training necessary.
    Practical talks on Domestic Economy with the object of prepar-
ing the girls for model housekeepers, form a part of the Industrial
work at present.  As soon as practicable  other Industries  will be
opened up.
    The experiment of industrial training in connection with mental
has so far been a success.  The acquired skill of hand has in reality
given better results from the efforts of the brain.   Especially true is
this as regards concentration, painstaking and accuracy.
    A  new building, just  completed  gives better opportunites for
extended work and growth in all the courses. That such growth will
take place is evident from the movements in the school and through-
out the state.  It is a much  needed work which the state does most
wisely to foster.                SARAH C. B. SCARBOROUGH,
                                     Principal Industrial Department.
