STATE INSTITUTIONS. The State College, established at Lexington by act of Legislature in 1865, is supported partly by Congressional, partly by State aid. Its management is vested in a board of trustees, consisting of the Governor, who is ex officio chairman of the board, and fifteen gentlemen nominated by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate. One trustee is selected from each Congressional district ontside of the district in which Lexington is situated, and the remaining five from the Lexington district.

In consequence of the aid received from the State each legislative district is allowed to appoint one student each year to the college. The appointment is valid for four years, and gives the appointee free tuition, lodging, fuel, lights and traveling expenses from his home and return, provided he remains one year at the college. Each district may also appoint (each year) four teachers, or persons preparing to teach, to tuition in the normal school of the college. These appointments are valid for one year.

All appointments are made, on competitive examination, by the county superintendents. The State pays in aid of said college, one-half of one cent on all taxes received. The Federal government appropriates $25,000 a year to the two State Colleges in the following proportion: 3:42 per cent to State College at Lexington. 1412 per cent. to Colored Normal School at Frankfort, STATE NORMAL SCHOOL FOR COLORED PERSONS,

FRANKFORT, KY. This school was established by act of the Legislature, dated May 18, 1886.

It is supported by an annual State appropriation of $4,255.50, $1,000 received from John F. Slater's fund, and by about $3,000 appropriated by Congress under act of August 30, 1890, which is also paid annually.

It is under the control of a board of trustees, of whom the State Superintendent of Public Instruction is chairman ex officio. The other three members are chosen by the Governor, and must be residents of Franklin county.

The faculty consists of six persons.
The departments are a preparatory and a normal.

Tuition is free to pupils residents of the State. The enrollment this year is sixty-five.

The Legislature of 1898 made an appropriation of $100,000 for the establishment of two schools of reform, one for girls, to be known as the “House of Reform" for girls, and one for boys, to be known as the "House of Reform" for boys. Six trustees, three women and three men, were appointed, according to the provis. ions of the law (Ky. Statutes, Sec. 2095), and they located the Houses of Reform at Lexington.

The object of this institution is for the reformation of juvenile criminals, under eighteen years of age, who by reason of moral depravity have rendered themselves burdensome to society.

The following officers have been appointed by the board of trustees: Mrs. Louise E. Yandell, president, Louisville;. Wm. Worthington, treasurer. Lexington; Mrs. Francis E. Beauchamp, secretary, Lexington; E. H. Drake, superintendent, Lexington, and Mrs. E. H. Drake, matron.
