selves. It is also the intention to form a collection of manufactured articles to be used partly for illustrating the lectures, partly as patterns, or as objects of examination in the technical laboratory. Whenever it is possible, manufacturing places are visited to show the products described in the lectures.
The subjects treated are the following:
3rd year Biology :- Advanced Morphology will be studied by means of lectures and seminarium. Dissection of typical animals will be continued in the laboratory. In addition, Histology will form one of the leading studies of the year, and the systematic Zoology and the elements of Embryology will also be taken up.
4th year Biology : Advanced Morphology will be continued as in the previous year. Each student will also be required to work during the year on some one subject for original investigation, and to prepare a thesis for graduation.
Provisions are made for students in this course to spend before graduation one or two sessions at the seaside, enabling them to become acquainted with animals in their own habitat under natural conditions and to study such animals as are not readily accessible in an ordinary laboratory.
2nd year Geology :—The work of this class will be general Zoology and Osteology. The principal classes of animals will be taken in turn, and their anatomy and histology will be dealt with so far as this is necessary in order to give a correct notion of classification. Osteology will be taken up during the latter part of the year.

2nd year Biology :-Lectures on Structural and Physiological Botany are given twice a week throughout the year. Instructions in the laboratory on the same subject also occupy the whole year. The student, moreover, practises the description and determination of species of Phanerogams. For these purposes specimens are brought daily from the Koishikawa Botanical Garden. Laboratory work in all occupies six hours a week.
