The Corporation of McGill University is associated with the Superintendent of Public Instruction in the direction of the McGill Normal School under the regulations of the Protestant Committee. The Normal School is intended to give a thorough training to Protestant teachers.
The complete course extends over a period of four annual sessions, an Elementary School Diploma being obtained at the close of the first session, a Model School Diploma at the close of the second, and an Academy Diploma at the close of the fourth. All these Diplomas are valid as authorizations to teach in any part of the Province of Quebec, without limitation of time.
None are admitted to the School but those who agree to devote themselves to teaching in the Province of Quebec for at least three years. To such persons, however, the advantages of the School are free of charge, and the sum of $1,200 is annually distributed in bursaries to aid in the payment of the board of the forty most successful pupils that do not reside at home during the School session. A small allowance for travelling expenses is made to those who reside more than ninety miles from Montreal.
All candidates who present certificates of having passed in Grade III. Model School Course, and all holders of Elementary School Diplomas, are exempt from examination for admission to the Elementary School Class. All candidates who have passed at the A. A. examinations, taking two-thirds of the aggregate marks, and who have passed in French, and all holders of Model School Diplomas, are exempt from examination for admission to the Model School Class. Holders of Elementary School Diplomas, desiring admission to the Model School Class, are examined in Algebra, Geometry and French only. The conditions of admission in other cases may be learned by consulting the prospectus of the School.
The next session of the School opens in September, 1890. Names of candidates will be enrolled on the 1st and 2nd days of the month, examinations will be held on the 3rd, successful candidates will be received and lectures will commence on the 4th.
Forms of application and copies of the Prospectus of the School may be obtained by application to the Principal, Dr. Robins. When issued, the Prospectus of the School will be sent to every Protestant minister of Quebec, as far as addresses can be found.

WHAT THE COLLEGE ENABLES THE STUDENT TO DO FOR HIMSELF AND HUMANITY.*
The proceedings of to-day bring to a close another scholastic year of this university, and also mark the termination of your college course; and, on behalf of the university, I congratulate you on having obtained the academic distinctions and honors which have to-day been conferred on you as the due consummation of your earnest studies during the years of the courses which you followed. You came here for your education, that is to receive the instruction necessary to acquire information and to develop your faculties. Such instruction you have received to a degree sufficient to entitle you to the diplomas which have been given to you and to fit you to enter the path which you have chosen for your course through life; but you must not imagine that you have now attained the goal, that your education is complete, and that henceforth you have only to apply that education to the pursuits you may engage in. Education, in the broad sense of the acquisition of knowledge, of the development of one's faculties, is co-extensive with one's life; the older we get the more we learn; and, at the same time, the more we realize the truth of Montaigne's saying: "That we shall not die so certain of anything as of our own ignorance." *The substance of an address delivered by the Hon. Justice Wurtele, at the late McGill College convocation.
