sTA’1E COLLEGE OF KENTUci~;\’. 27 matron's and servants’ rooms. The natural conformation of the ground, and an abundant supply of water from the old Maxwell spring, render the construction of an artificial lake, with boating course a quarter of a mile in length, compara- tively easy, thus providing for a beautiful sheet of water to add to the attractions of the landscape. Lexington is now the most important railroad center in Kentucky, being in immediate communication with Louis- 4 ville, Cincinnati, Maysville, Chattanooga, and with more than seventy counties in the Commonwealth. The long established reputation of the city for rehnement and culture renders it attractive as a seat of learning, and the large body of fertile country adjacent, known as the " Blue—Grass Region," with its splendid stock farms, affords unsurpassed advantages to the student of agriculture who desires to make himself familiar with the best breeds of horses, cattle, sheep, and Swine in America. . Boarding. For the accommodation of students sent by the Board of Examiners appointed by the Court of Claims, as benehciaries of the Legislative Representative Districts of the State, i rooms for ninety students are provided in the dormitory. · To these good substantial board is furnished at $2 per week, payable in advance. Students lodging in the dormitory ~ furnish their own rooms. Good boarding, with fuel, lights, and furnished room can be obtained in private families at V rates varying from $3.50 to 55 per week. In all cases where students can at all afford it, boarding and lodging in private families are recommended. Expenses.

'\\'hen supplies are kept short, the op- portunity for contracting vicious habits is correspondingly diminished. Students should be allowed by their parents V to create no debts.
