2 STATE COLLEGE OF KENTUCKY. _ By the act of incorporation, and the amendments thereto, ` · constituting the charter of the Agricultural and Mechanical · College of Kentucky, liberal provision is made for educating, I free of tuition, the energetic young men of the Commonwealth J whose means are limited. The Normal Department, for which i provision is also made, is inte11ded to aid in building up the Com- ji mon School system by furnishing properly qualified teachers.

" that their leading object shall be, without excluding other _ scientific and classical studies, and including military tactics, to ._ teach such branches of learning as are related to agriculture and · the mechanic arts, in order to promote the liberal and practical j education of the industrial classes in the several pursuits and ,_ professions in life." To the departments contemplated in the J ` act, a Normal School has been added by the State and an Experi- i mental Station by the United States. Q I THE NORMAL SCHOOL. The Normal Department of the State College exists under the authority of acts of the General Assembly, approved April ‘ 23 and April 29, 1880.
