boy become the robust and enduring youth, able to sustain continued application and to perform in
after life an amount of intellectual labor that only a sound and vigorous development could make possible.
In connection with the



The infantry and artillery drills; and, while these receive a minuteness of attention not often given to
them, and are so used as to produce physically a permanent effect, they have no tendency to create a desire,
as experience has shown, for a military life. The system, as here arranged, has been chosen for the great
benefits that result from it. But, although a military school, the institution, it must be distinctly under¬
stood, is not for the training of those who are vicious or unmanageable under any other system. Should
any of this class, by accident or misrepresentation, ever be received, they will, on the manifestation of
such character, be at once returned to their parents. The feelings of the principals, not less than their
intimate relations with their pupils, look to other associations and other results. Confidence, patience,
and kindness on their part, truthfulness, honor, and generous sentiment on the pupil’s, are the basis
and the bond of union between them. No boy who is insensible to considerations of this kind is desired
in the school, nor can he long remain connected with it.

Pupils are received whenever a vacancy occurs; but, as the number is limited and places are usually
filled in advance, applications, to prevent disappointment, should be made as early as possible.
