This local work is a part of a great whole, and few outside of those concerned in the con- duct of the International Young 1 Men'a Christian Association, educa- tional system realize its extent and beneficence. It is no' longer an ex- periment ibut a pronounced success. In reality it is a great university, and tihe general oversight and mana-ge- mient is in the hands of a committee oom'posed of some of the leading edu- cators of the country. Among its members are G.

The growth and extent of the work can perhaps be best appreciated by a glance at the enrollments of st'udents during the last four years, as follows- 1S89, 24,000; WOO, .25,900; 1901, 26,908; 1PO'2, 29.000. The courses of study and text books are uniform 'and are In conformity to the International Syllabi sent out each year by the International Com- mittee to the associations for their guidance and use. One great advan- tage in tihis method is that a student \n one city who- may remove to an- other city is enabled to continue his it-udies in the Y. M. C. A. there with- out any change in text books or our- 'iculum. At the end of tflie educational year examinations are held for those stu- dents who desire them and the pa- cers are first passed upon by the faculty of the local association.'-'Those vho come up to a certain standard ire then sent to tihe International committee, where they are reviewed and the international certificates are ssued to those students who success- fully meet the test. That the 'certifi- cate has standing and value is evi- denced by the fact that in over 15\0 educational institutions these certifi- cates are accepted for matriculation rtthont 'any other examination. Com- ing now to the work of the Platts- burgh association. A successful class in mechanical drawing was conducted last year, tihe examinations not being ;aken on account of the instructor eaving town just (before the comple- tion of the course. It is expected that this class will be continued this sea- son, witih an increased attendance. rf sufficient young men express a de- sire for them and enough entries are received; classes will also be orfan- zed in English grammar, arithmetic, bookkeeping, spelling, ipenmanship, iommercial forms, civil government, short hand, vocal music and -first-aid' to the injured. As these classes are organized solely for the purpose of 'and benefiting young men and the fees dharged are only suffi- cient to cover the cost of instruction, interested young imen should do their part, which is to see the Secretary at once and say wihich class they de- sire to enter, to enable him to se- cure competent Instructors before the time for the class sessions ta begin, which will be early in October. Do niot delay the matter but attend to It . once, if you desire to secure the great advantages offered at a cost , less than you will ever be able \o secure tihem again, outside of the association evening school. Employ- ed boys and men will find the Secre- tary at his office almost every even- of the week, where he will be n'oased to meet them an'. n:r- *» v everything in detail. It sfhould be nderstood that these classes are for the benefit of members of the Young Men's -Christian' Association only and who \are not mow members will have to becoime so, at a cost of $2 or $5 p-er year before they can enter the classes. Any man of good moral character can (become a member of the association, without regard to his re- igio-us belief. Catholics, Protestants, r ews and men of n<o stated belief be- ing admitted on the 'saane terms. l<i BELLS. Comstoch-- f.add.
