Evening School Department of St. Louis College.
The President has decided to include this branch in the curriculum of the College.
Its object is to afford all classes of the community the means of acquiring a theoretical and practical knowledge of all commercial and business transactions in daily use; and also to give an insight into the workings and applications of the different Trades, which it is so essential to do in these Islands.
The Theoretical Branch will be under the supervision of the President and Professors of the College. The Practical and most important Branch will be specially attended to by volunteers from the various master artizans among us, who have kindly and generously promised their services to this useful and valuable enterprise.
They will, alternately, devote half and hour each evening to the task of imparting knowledge to the students. All the implements necessary to each trade, and to Agriculture, will be furnished by the College.
Each master-artizan, while connected with the College, will be entitled to name one Free-Life-Scholarship to the privileges of this Evening School Department.
TERMS—Each student per week, 50 cts. The Evening School will open at 7 o’clock p. m.
