The Largest Normal School in the United States.

The Northern Indiana Normal School

Will open its 26th Year Aug. 30, '98, under more favorable auspices than ever before.

With its new library, new laboratories, and extended course of study, it is prepared to

offer advantages superior to those of any preceding year.

By honest work the school has made a very enviable reputation, and justly deserves the high position it holds among the educational institutions of the land.

Credits. The grades from the school are accepted in all the best Universities, and in many instances its graduates have received special mention on account of the thoroughness of their preparation. Aim of the School.

The aim of the school is to give all who come here the best possible advantages for accomplishing the greatest good in the shortest time, and at the least expense.

Teachers. The high grade of work done in the Department of Pedagogy has received the commendation of educators everywhere. There is no other school in the country giving more attention to professional work. Teachers and those preparing to teach will have the very best advantages for receiving training in the latest and most approved methods. There are extended courses in Psychology, Pedagogy, Child Study, History and Philosophy of Education, Kindergarten and Method. Pharmacy. The school of Pharmacy is very complete. There are about sixty recognized schools of pharmacy in the United States, of these not more than twelve have sufficient laboratory facilities to do the entire work, and this is one of the twelve. Attention is called to this to show that while the expenses here are the lowest, yet the advantages are the very best.



The Business College in connection with the school is one of the most complete in the land. It is equipped with the most extensive line of offices ever attempted by any school.

In Music, on account of the school being located so near Chicago, we are obliged to compete with the best work done there, so that students have every advantage here that they could have in the city, and at an expense not one-fourth so great.

Other What is said of these departments may be said of each department of the school. It has been the purpose of the management to equip Departments thoroughly each department, and to place it in charge of the most competent instructors.

Large While the attendance is large, yet the classes are so sectioned that each student has the same advantage as though the enrollment did not exAttendance. ceed 300 students. The continued growth of the school and the demand for those trained here is the best evidence that the work is satisfactory.

Expenses Less Than at Any Other Place. Tuition, $10 per term. Good board and well-furnished room, $1.50 to

$1.90 per week. Same rates in private families as in the Dormitories.

KEEP COOL. Don't adopt every book that comes along.

Don't condemn a book after brief examination. But when your neighbors have thoroughly tested a book and pronounce it superior-don't you owe it to your pupils to try it? We have in mind Tarr's First Book of Physical Geography and Lewis' First Book in Writing English.

DON'T THINK these are our only successful high school

books. Channing's Students' U. S. History is the book the best high schools have been waiting for. Stopford Brooke's is "the best history of English literature ever written," and the best algebra for drill is Hall & Knight's. Tarr's Geology is all right.

REST assured we shall keep right on publishing books of the highest merit. Mrs. Wilson's Nature Study and Carruth's Wilhelm Tell, each a pronounced success, show what we intend to do along these lines. You will like our new series of English Classics.

NOTE. The Ohio Teachers' Reading Circle has adopted Halleck's
Education of the Central Nervous System ($1.00) and recommends Mrs.
Wilson's Nature Study in Elementary Schools (.90).
