ORDER OF C.L.S.C. STUDIES FOR 1887-'88.

We print below the outline of the course of study for 1887-'88. A glance will disclose the plan of the work. It will be noticed that in the books attention is given to history, literature, science, and, religion, while THE CHAUTAUQUAN adds to its studies on these lines several on practical themes, including a series on economic questions and one on the leading industries of America. It is believed that these latter will be of unusual interest. The magazine will also include in its Required Readings helpful papers on manners, conduct, and hygiene. For all the readings the very best talent has been employed. The course for 1887-'88 will be broad in its scope, thorough in treatment, and of great practical interest.
