HISTORY.

An act of the General Assembly of the State of Illinois, approved

April 20, 1869, gave birth to this Normal School. By this act it wasprovided that live Trustees should be appointed by the Governor of the

State, who should fix the location, erect the building, and employ teachers

for the school. The Governor, General John M. Palmer, appointed

Captain Daniel Hurd, of Cairo ;Eli Bowyer, of Olney ; Col. Thomas M.

Harris, of Shelbyville : Rev. Elihu J. Palmer, of Belleville: and Samuel

E. Flannigan, Esq., of Benton.

The work of instruction in the new building began July 2, 1874, at

which time a Normal Institute was opened, with fifty-three pupils. Onthe 6th day of September, 1874, the regular sessions of the Normal Uni-

versity were commenced. The school is graded, and has three depart-

ments—a Normal University, with two courses of study, occupying

four and three years respectively: a Grammar School, two years; and

a Training Department.

There have been admitted to the University in all departments 2,952

students, and a record, kept very carefully, shows that about 1,973 of

these have taught school since their study with us ; and hundreds of

letters received by us testify that a large portion of these students have

taught excellent schools. Notwithstanding the competition of teachers

for places, it is not uncommon for directors to apply to us for teachers

whom we have educated, and whom we can recommend, and such

teachers iind little difficulty in obtaining schools at from five to ten dol-

lars more a month than others.

GENERAL INFORMATION.

The object of the University is to do apart of the work of education

undertaken by the State. This is provided for in the departments before

named. One design of the Grammar and Training School is to be an

example of what a school for primary scholars should be. and to afford

to those preparing themselves to teach a place where they may observe

the best methods in operation, and where, at suitable times, they maypractice the calling of a teacher under the eye of one well instructed

and largely experienced in the work. This practice work aud observa-

tion is receiving each year more attention with us. and is one of our

most valuable advantages.

The Normal Department is to give thorough instruction in the ele-

mentary and higher portions of tbe school course of study, and, indeed,

to lit the student by knowledge and dicipline for the practical duty of

a teacher. It aims to give, in addition to instruction, opportunities of

observation and trial to every one passing through the course, so that

he shall not be an entire novice in his calling when he enters the school

room. With this idea in mind, every branch prescribed to be taught in

the common and high schools of our State is carefully studied. Accu-

racy and complete thoroughness are points held in mind in every reci-

tion, and drills upon the elements are not shunned as though one gained

something by slurring over them. So much of each branch as we pur-

sue, we endeavor to impress upon the heart, and incorporate its meth-

ods into the whole frame of the character. Great attention is therefore

bestowed upon the earlier parts of the course, such as spelling and pro-

nunciation, reading and defining,, drawing, writing, vocal music and

calisthenics. The body needs culture and systematic activity quite as

much as the soul, and we begin with making it the 1 servant of the mind,

and habituating it to an unhesitating obedience.

The course of study is planned to give information, to assist in self-

control and discipline, and to promote culture and refinement, it is

arranged in the order which ages have found most profitable and philo-

sophical ; and all experience has shown that the first qualifications of a

NORMAL UNIVERSITY. 31

teacher are knowledge and personal self-discipline. The study of meth-

ods or practice will go for little till the scientiiic education has been

obtained. The earlier studies are elementary, and the later ones calcu-

lated for stimulating thought when it is growing to maturity and needs

discipline in proper directions. It is most emphatically urged on all

students that they make their arrangements to pursue each study in its

order, to do thorough work in each, and not to overburden the mindand body too by a larger number of studies than they can carry. Fourstudies a day should be the extreme limit, and even then one should be

a review of a branch already quite familiar.

Few things can be impressed upon the mind to more prolit than

rules like the following, and we earnestly request school officers, direc-

tors, and county superintendents to aid us, and the friends of sound, sys-

tematic education to reiterate the maxims: Be thoroughly grounded in

the elements of knowledge; particularly spelling with readiness and

correctness; adding and multiplying numbers in all possible combina-

tions with electric speed and infallable accuracy; writing with dispatch

and neatness a good hand, easily read; drawing any simple figure, and

singing. These things well learned in theory, and wrought into prac-

tical habits, not only open the door to all fields of knowledge and art, but

they do go a long way toward making easy the highest attainments in

scholarship and the sweetest grace in all manners and behavior. This

Normal University insists on them as both necessary and easy to be

gained.

Our rules of government are few in number and very general in

their application. They are embraced in the Golden Rule:

"DO TO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD TPIEY SHOULD DO TO YOU."

It is expected, of course, that they include:

1. Neatness of person and dress.

2. Purity of words and behavior.

3. Cleanliness of desks, books and rooms.

-t. Courteous bearing to teachers and fellow students.

5. Punctuality and promptness, not to the minute only, but to the second.

(5, Respect for all the rights of others in all things.

7. Earnest devotion to work.

8. Quietness in all movements.

9. By all means be in school the first day and remain till the last day of every

term.

10. Obedience to the laws of love, good will, and duty.

If the spirit of these rules can be infused into the soul and wrought

into the habits, each student will for himself grow in goodness and

truth, and for the State he will be a power and a blessing.

A copy of the following paper is handed to each student who wishes

32 SOUTHERN ILLINOIS

to enter the University, and he is expected to give honest answers to

each question, and to sign the pledge marked I below; and in case he

desires free tuition he must also sign the one marked II, and it must be

held a point of honor with each one to keep these pledges, both while in

school and afterward by teaching:

NORMAL UNIVERSITY.

A FEW WORDS OF SUGGESTION.

TO THOSE WHO DESIGN TO ATTEND OUR SCHOOL.

1. Understand how many of onr studies yon have mastered thor-

oughly, and come ready to be examined on them. Do not forget that

one who is to teach should be more thorough that one who is intending

to be merely a scholar.

2. Do uot take the higher studies till yon have passed the lower in

onr classes or by our examination. Elementary work always pays bet-

ter in the end than any other. Finish this first ; do not be discouraged

because your elementary studies have not been thorougly done ; you canremedy all such deficiencies. Quite too many want to begin with the

higher studies. Take an examination of the lower ones and find exactly

how you stand in them, and then advance as rapidly as you please. It

has been found by our experience of fourteen years that a large numberof students come to the school lacking in the arts of reading, spelling,

and writing. Let these be taken as your first studies. We will pass

you on, as soon as you have proved you are a master of the arts funda-

mental of all the practice of learning and teaching.

3. Always bring recommendations from the county superintendent

or county judge, or some 1 clergyman or justice of the peace.

4. Come determined to work every day, and to omit no duty ; to

give up every pleasure for the time, and to do nothing but school duties,

and to do them without fail at the proper time. Give up dancing

schools, as most demoralizing to scholarly habits ; and all dancing par-

ties, as leading to dissipation and often quarrelsomeness, as well as vice

and worthlessness.

TO THOSE WHO SEND SCHOLARS TO SCHOOL.

We trust county superintendents will advise any who contemplate

devoting themselves, for a time, at least, to the work of teaching, to

enter some of our departments—the Pedagogical centainly—and thus to

associate themselves with the hundreds who have been with us, and are

heartily engaged in elevating the calling of the teacher. It would be

well to advise onlv such to attend as have an honest character and fair

?A SOUTHERN ILLINOIS

health, and good abilities to communicate knowledge. Any one whowants to teach simply because of the lighter and more agreeable labor

and better pay, should be discouraged. But when one desires to be

worthy both in knowledge and character to discharge the high duties of

a teacher, and needs more science and better discipline, let him comeand profit.

COURSE OF STUDY.

The course of study, we repeat, has been arrrngecl with two pur-

poses in view—1, to give a strictly Normal course of training to lit

teachers for public schools, and 2, to give example of methods of teach-

ing. It therefore goes over the whole curriculum of school studies, and

gives especial attention to those branches which require the use of the

observing and perceptive faculties, without neglecting those which de-

mand the use of the imagination and reason. Practical attention is de-

voted to physics, chemistry, natural history, geography, numbers and

language, and the student is not only taught to know, but to do the

work of the branches which he pursues. He is also required to give in-

struction in all that he learns, so that when he begins his life-work,

either of teaching or laboring in a secular employment, he may not be

wholly inexperienced in the very beginning of his career.

DEPARTMENTS.

The course of study is arranged into departments, and is embodied

in the accompanying schedules and tables of studies and hours of recita-

tions. Special attention is called to these, and students are earnestly

advised to begin with the lower and proceed to the higher. There is a

natural order of succession of studies; and long and careful experiments

have proven that this can not be inverted without harm. We ask all to

study the syllabus of each department and mark its plan.

MILITARY.

Douglas Corps of Cadets.

SECOND LIEUT. J. F. BELL, SEVENTH CAVALRY, COMMANDING.

Those male pupils over 15 years of age who may so desire are

formed into a Cadet Battalion for the purpose of military drill and ex-

ercise. The drill is for three-fourths of an hour each school day, and in

no way interferes with school studies. The United States Government

has detailed an officer of the regular army to take charge of this de-

partment, and has furnished for the use of the Cadets 100 Springfield

cadet rifles, two o-inch rifled cannon, and 100 cavalry sabres, at no cost

whatever to the State or the institution.

The cadet uniform is similar to that of the Grand Army of the Re-

public, with the exception that the buttons are those of the State troops.

The cap is of blue cloth, shoulder straps and other insignia of rank

same as for infantry serviee U. S. army. A full suit can be bought in

Carbondalc at from $12.00 to $20.00 according to quality. The advan-

tage of this choice of uniform is that it is cheap, can be purchased any-

where, and if a Cadet remains at the University only one term, at the

end of that time, by a change of buttons, he has a simple civilian's suit

than can be worn without being in the least conspicuous. No better

suit than this can be obtained for school wear, and it is earnestly rec-

ommended that all who conn 1 to the school with the intention of becom-ing Cadets provide themselves with it either before or after their arrival.

The corps is divided into a number of companies suitable to its size.

The officers receive commissions and the non-commissioned officers war-

rants, from the Commandant. Students over twenty-one years old andany others who have been officers in the D. C. C, but have lost their

positions through absence from school will, if they desire, be formedinto a separate company and allowed to elect their own officers.

It is the desire of the Faculty and Board of Trustees that all the

male pupils of tin; proper age join the Military Department. The value

NORMAL UNIVERSITY. 61

of the drill in developing an erect and gentlemanly carriage and in

counteracting the stooping effect produced by bending over the desk in

the act of study is very great. It gives to the Cadets three-fourths of an

hour per day in the open air as a relief from the study hall, and in ad-

dition gives them a knowledge of military matters that in case of waror domestic violence or isurrec'tion would be of great value to them-

selves and to their country.

The time available for instruction in this Department is necessarily

limited, and varies considerably with the weather and circ*mstances.

The courses have been planned to suit these conditions and embodywhat, for want of a better general distinction, may be termed essential

and auxiliary features.

Under the former we include all that knowledge which would best

prepare the student to render efficient practical service; as a companyofficer or non-commissioned officer of the State militia; as an organizer

of the same in case of necessity, and. as a member of—very much the

largest and most important component of every great army— the Vol-

unteer Infantry.

The auxiliary features comprise subjects designed to arouse and

enhance in the students a desire for military knowledge and may in-

clude anything calculated to stimulate them to further study of military

subjects, and increase their interest in and taste for military affairs and

service.

For us, under our conditions and limited time, the making of the

former a first consideration seems the wisest course to pursue and

most likely to result in practical benefit to the country. Hence, whenthe conditions happen to be unfavorable only so much time is devoted

to the auxiliary kind of instruction as can be spared from that which is

considered more important.

NORMAL UNIVERSITY.

PEDAGOGICAL COURSE.

THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL.

After careful consideration of the wants of the schools in our sec-

tion of the State, we have decided to adopt the following course of

purely professional, Normal, or Pedagogical study .This we do to bring

the University even more completely than heretofore into the line of

work which such schools or seminaries originally and technically were

designed to perforin. It will embrace the science and method of teach-

ing in its application to all stages of education, in school and out of it;

commencing with infancy and the kindergarten, and, going along with

the child, the boy or girl, the youth, the scholar, the collegian, and the

professional student, it will describe the eight grades of schools or

learning—the Home, the Kindergarten, the Primary, the Intermediate,

the Grammar, the High School, the College, and the University, or

Technological School. It will be conducted chiefly by Lectures, Exam-inations, Observations. Experiments, and Criticisms , and will be similar

in many respects to what is called Clinics in Medical Schools. Thecourse will be threefold, and may extend over three years, though if a

student is fully prepared in the several branches of knowledge, and can

give his entire time to this, he ma}' complete it in much less time, but if

he is deficient in many he may enter our Academic classes and bring

them up.

We propose to give in this course just what a teacher needs to

know—the Child, the School, the Knowledge, the Teacher—the meth-

ods of gathering, preserving and communicating—of classifying, gen-

eralizing; inferring and deducing—how to learn and how to impart.

This, we think, teachers need to know after having acquired science.

And added to this will be a history of Education and its Literature, as

well as the various systems of Schools in our own and other countries.

We have already something of this in our Senior and Post Graduate

years. We now propose to consolidate and enlarge it, and thus give to

the one who desires the most thorough preparation possible for the

teacher's calling, both in the elementary and higher studies, in fine,

68 SOUTHERN ILLINOIS

opportunity to go over the whole range of Pedagogical Science. OurLibrary has been selected for that purpose, and already embraces a

greater number of books on Pedagogical Science and Practice than any

other in the West. It is for general use, and teachers in this section can

avail themselves of its advantages with comparatively little cost.

If a student comes to enter this course he should be able to pass

an examination on all the topics required by law for a first-grade certifi-

cate, and to do this with more thoroughness than is usually demanded.

We state more definitely what this examination will be in order to admit

one to enter on this course. This is done that the plan may be under-

stood, and that the teachers may know how to prepare for it.

FOR THE FIRST COURSE.

1. In orthography the test will be one hundred and fifty words

selected from a daily newspaper printed in St. Louis or Chicago on the

day previous to the examination. These words to be dictated at the

rate of five per minute, and be legibly written, with due regard for

capital letters.

2. In writing, to write and punctuate an advertisem*nt and a para-

graph of editorial or of news from the same newspaper, both dictated

by the examiner after the candidate has read them aloud.

3. As a test of ability to express thought, a composition will be

asked of not less than thirty lines of legal cap. on a topic to be assigned

at the time.

4. In reading, ten minutes from one of the common school books,

and an oral statement of the sounds of letters and purpose and effect of

pauses, accents, and emphasis.

5. In geography, the common definition of terms, lines, circles

and some general account of countries, especially the boundaries of the

several States of the Union; mountains, cities and railroads. To this

should be added a few points of historical interest.

6. In arithmetic, as far as roots, with especial attention to the

reasons for the fundamental rules and principles of fractions, decimals,

percentage, and analysis, and the building of tables.

7. In grammar, etymology and syntax, definitions, etc.. and a

practical use of correct sentences, including correction of errors.

8. United States History should be known as to settlements, the

Revolution, the succession of Presidents, the wars, and an account of

some of the most important inventions which have modified industry

and commerce.

!). If to this could be added a fair practice of free-hand drawing

NORMAL UNIVERSITY. 69

the preparation would be considered complete. But this last can be

learned with us.

THE SECOND COURSE.

This will require a preparation equal to that demanded for a State

certilicate. To show more clearly this work we specify:

1. All the branches named above and a higher test in composition,

say an essay of three hundred words on some school topic, assigned by

the examiner, to be prepared for the press.

2. Grammatical analysis of sentences and prosody, with the philos-

ophy of the parts of speech and the etymology of words, and an analy-

sis of idioms.

3. Algebra, as far as quadratics and binomial theorem, and plane

geometry.

4. History of the United States, with considerable minuteness as to

the Revolution and its principles, and the war of 1812. and of our civil

war. Also the history of England in brief as to the period of discoveries

and settlements, the revolution of 1688, and the revolution of 183*2.

o. The several branches of natural history, as botany, zoology, and

physiology, with a fair degree of thoroughness. This should include a

knowledge of definitions, classifications, and an ability to determine

species.

6. Natural philosophy and astronomy in their common principles

and important apjriications, and chemistry, so as to be able to explain

the phenomena of their combinations and to analyze the salts of com-

mon substances; and in addition, theory of electricity, heat, and mag-netism.

This examination will be a fair test of ability to acquire knowledge

and to communicate information, and will prove the student's fitness to

enter on and pursue the higher course of reading and lectures.

THE THIRD COURSE

Will add to its requirements for admission ability to translate Cicero and

Virgil with clearness and grace, a knowledge of Latin grammar, trigo-

nometry, surveying and logarithms.

The student will, while pursuing his work here, go over rhetoric,

logic, and mental philosophy, with elocution and English literature and

history. He will read Barnard, Wickersham, Hall of Johns Hopkins

University, Payne, Quick. Rosenkranz, and other works on Pedagogy.

There will also be opportunity for chemical work in the laboratory, andfor instruction and practice in taxidermy, and preserving and mounting

specimens.

70 SOUTHERN ILLINOIS

We offer this course as our contribution to professional education

proper, and are ready to meet the demand for such a beginning of

higher and normal training. If young men and young women will

come prepared to enter upon it we will do our utmost to supply themwith means to acquire the science and skill to make them eminently

fit to be teachers and leaders.

POST GRADUATE YEAR.

This will embrace a larger course of history, more of mathematics,

political economy, criticism, held work in natural history, analytical

chemistry, and dissecting and preserving specimens collected. It will

also include a course of lectures on the above branches, and on the his-

tory and science of education.

NORMAL UNIVERSITY.

FACILITIES FOR ILLUSTRATION.

MUSEUM AND CABINET.

Again we allow what is below to stand because it so well describes

what we have had and what we expect to have again in the near future.

Since the fire our friends have sent many specimens and we have already

a very creditable museum, and one fit to illustrate nearly all points in

Natural History.

In the first story a large and well-lighted room is set apart as the

Museum, and is supplied with elegant center and wall cases of best design

and finish for display of specimens.

The cabinets of minerals and rocks are large, varied, and amply suf-

ficient for the practical work of the student. He will find the zoologi-

cal and botanical cabinets, comprising thousands of specimens from

land and sea, an invaluable aid in his studies in natural history.

The Normal respectfully solicits its friends and the friends of edu-

cation to aid in building up a museum worthy of Southern Illinois.

Specimens of minerals, insects, birds, animals, and plants, also

Indian relics, such as stone axes and pipes, disks, spear and arrow heads,

and pottery, will be thankfully received.

Specimens should be boxed carefully and sent by express, unless

heavy, in which case they may be forwarded as freight.

The full name of the donor should not be omitted.

Already our friends have contributed many and valuable specimens

to the Museum, and we embrace this occasion to return to them our

sincere thanks. More than four thousand specimens have been col-

lected and arranged in the Museum, and the additions to the Library

comprise nearly fifteen hundred volumes. Old books, pamphlets, maps,

etc., curiosities, fossils, plants, and fruits will be gratefully received andcarefully preserved.

CHEMICAL, PHILOSOPHICAL, AND ILLUSTRATIVE APPARATUS.

The University possesses the most complete and expensive set of

apparatus in the State south of Chicago, with a single exception, whichis annually increased try the appropriation of the General Assembly.

rZ SOUTHERN ILLINOIS

It can boast of a good physical and chemical apparatus, including a

newly purchased Spectroscope, a Holtz's Induction Electrical Machine,

a compound Microscope; an Air Pump witli its usual necessary attach-

ments; also an Oxy-calcium Sciopticon, with views of scientific subjects.

The Chemical Department is supplied with a working laboratory with a

full set of reagents, where students have qualitative analysis of salts,

oils, waters, etc.

The Astronomical Department has a telescope of sufficient powerto show the rings of Saturn, a Celestial Indicator to illustrate the vari-

ous phenomena of the heavens, and other apparatus pertaining to as-

tronomy.

The 'Mathematical Department has a Surveyor's Transit and a

Compass, which the class in trigonometry and surveying are required

to use constantly.

LIBRARY AND WORKS OF REFERENCE.

The University has a complete set of books of reference. Cyclope-

dias, Biographical and Pronouncing Dictionaries, Gazetteers, Atlases,

etc., which are placed in the study hall, so that students may at anytime consult them.

The*Library proper occupies spacious rooms, and is well furnished.

The Library contains about 7,900 carefully selected volumes, including

a professional^ brary for teachers.

NORMAL UNIVERSITY.

CONDITIONS OF ADMISSION.

To be entitled to admission to the Normal Department, ladies mustbe sixteen years of age and gentlemen eighteen. They must be of

good moral character, and a certificate to that effect will be required.

This may be from the County Judge, or Superintendent, or any knownclergyman. To enjoy the privilege of free tuition the}' must sign a

certificate promising to teach in the schools of Illinois three years, or

at least as long as they have received gratuitous instruction. They are

to[pass an examination either before the County Superintendent or ex-

aminers, or before the faculty of the University, such as would entitle

them to a second grade certificate, and they must agree to obey all

reasonable requirements as to order, promptness, cleanliness, and goodbehavior.

SUGGESTIONS.

We do earnestly and affectionately recommend to all our students,

and to those who may be in charge of them, or who have influence over

them in any way, by advice or authority, that they fix as a rule never

to leave the institution before the end of the term, and, if possible, that

they complete a full year. Fragments of an education are indeed of

much worth, just as the fragments of a diamond are valuable. But

how much more profitable are they when united. Do not be absent

from school a day. The regular calisthenic exercise or the military

drill will give you health for consecutive study, and by habitual appli-

cation you will acquire facility for labor, and will accomplish more than

you would have believed.

We certainly shall not grant diplomas to those who are absent very

often, and do not finish eveiy examination, both oral and written. Oneof^the values of a course of study is that it represents years of honest,

punctual labor, and a patient, systematic thinking.

Every young lady should be provided with an umbrella, a water-

proof cloak, and low-heeled walking boots of ample size, and good rub-

ber overshoes. Young men also need umbrellas and overshoes.

SOUTHEKN ILLINOIS

LITERARY SOCIETIES.

The students have organized two literary societies for the purpose

of mutual improvement. They are the Zetetic Society and the

Socratic Society. They meet every Friday evening. These afford

one of the best means of culture, discipline, and instruction in the prac-

tical conduct of business. They have commenced the foundations of

libraries, and deserve the countenance and patronage of all students

and their friends. They have elegant rooms, admirably fitted and fur-

nished. They represent the energy of the students and show their

devotion to the practical preparation for all the public duties of life.

LOCATION, ETC.

Carbondale is a city of 2,500 inhabitants, healthful and beautiful,

with a refined and cultured people. It is easy of access, and offers

inducements for board and social advantages beyond most places. It

lias, perhaps, fewer temptations to idleness and dissipations, and com-

bines religious and educational privileges in a degree greater than the

average of towns and cities. Parents may be assured that their chil-

dren will be as safe as in any school away from home, and scholars maycome here and be certain that economy and industry will be respected

and assisted by all. The Illinois Central, the Carbondale and Grand

Tower, and the Cairo Short Line railroads afford ample facilities for

convenient access.

NORMAL UNIVERSITY.

TO STRANGER STUDENTS.

To those who come to the city entire strangers the Young Men's

Christian Association and the Young Women's Christian Association

will give you a cordial welcome. Both these Associations render effi-

cient help to all who come here to enter as students, directing them to

boarding places, giving them such information as they need, and assist-

ing them to form proper friendships and church relationships, if they

desire. Committees of the Associations are at the station on the arrival

of the incoming trains at the beginning of each term. The}" render val-

uable aid to strangers.

EXPENSES.

To those who sign the certificate named above, tuition is gratuitous;

but the law of the State requires that there shall be a fee charged for

incidentals, at present not exceeding $3 per term of fifteen weeks, and

$2 per term of twelve weeks. Tuition in Normal Department, $9 and

$6; Preparatory Department, $6 and $4, and in the Training Depart-

ment, $4 and $3.

Board can be had in good families in Carbondale, at rates varying

from $2.50 to $3.50 per week; and by renting rooms and self-boarding,

or by organizing clubs, the cost may be reduced to $1.50 per week.

Books are sold by the book stores at reasonable rates.

A successful club has been carried on during the year now closing

in which prices—including all expense—have ranged from $2.00 to $2.50

per week.
