IT would seem that the facilities offered at the Bussey Institution for instruction in agriculture are not taken advantage of or appreciated. For we learn that "no small part of the time of the instructors has been spent in supervising the construction of buildings, aqueducts, reservoirs, and roadways; in fitting and furnishing greenhouses, laboratories, and lecture-rooms, and in laying out grounds." This institution recently received an endowment of $100,000. But notwithstanding the improvements made and being made, it has not succeeded in inducing a single student to offer himself for the three years' course in agriculture. This fact seems to substantiate a prevailing opinion that the demand for such instruction in this country is not very great.
