OAKLAND TRIBUNE DECEMBER 22, 1900 12 SATURDAY EVENINQ ST. MARY'S COiLECE. Model Institution in Which Young Men Receive .. i Solid Training : Among the well-known Institutions of learning in Alameda County, St. "Mary's College, situated in one of the . most fashionable" suburbs of Oakland, is among the most popular. Originally located on the Bernal Heights of San Francisco, owing to the boisterous climatic conditions, . it was transferred, The discipline of the college Is mild but firm, as mild an is consistent with the inculcation of true religious principles. The Brothers of the Christian Schools, to whom the . educational charge of the institution was confided in the year JISS8. desiring always to form a famny circle with their students prefer to rely on the principle of honor as the highest type of Christian manliness for the maintenance of discipline and propriety of conduct. Science, in its (various branches, chemistry, practical and theoretical, surveying, modern j languages taught on the latest and most original methods, phonography, type-writing, teleg- rooms, a chemical laboratory, a college museum, elaborate sets of apparatus for physical science, and all the various appurtenances requisite for a modern education. - . . In the able hands of th Reverend Brother Erminold, one of the oldest and best known educators on the Pacific Slope, the College has made wonderful strides during the last few years, and it may safely be. said that, for a thoroughly practical and up-to-date education its destinies could not be confided to better' hands. ; In looking after the mental progress of the students, the management Of St.' Mary's has not overlooked their phys- EAST BAY SANATORIUM. Dr. Krone's Model Hospital and Home for Sick and Ailing. 1 '- i ' The East Bay Sanatorium and training school for Nurses was founded in the fall of 189C in a building erected expressly for hosp'tal purposes at 1505 Telegraph avenue, which It has -since occupied. The founder and manager. Dr. Clark R. Krone, has been successful In i. giving to the regular medical profession of Oakland what they greatly needed, namely, a well-conducted and well-equipped private hospital. There, at moderate cost, serious illness can be scientifically treated and t the sick be nursed back to health, or surgical operations of any magnitude may be performed,- under aseptic conditions and surroundings, and with the help of trained assistants and appliances. . The East Bay Sanatorium Training School for Nurses has furnished to Oakland some of , its .best trained ' nurses. I i Physicians and public alike appreciate their skill and devotion to the highest extent The building, situated on one of the most frequentej thoroughfares "i of Oakland, its third story wjndows open to the hills on the east and to San Francisco bay and the Golden Gate on the west. has,, for some time, been rather email for the increasing demands. Within the last few months, Doctor Krone has acquired additional rooms by si-curing for himself and J- (JiT - ...... --- . . . i no in If 1; j . .

With some internal changes, new ipoms in the Sanatorium for patients were thereby gained and the hospital was increased in usefulness as it offers more space to the sick, j Among many, the old dread of hospital still exists, but the East Bay Sanatorium has endeared itself in the memory of a goodly number of grateful patients and their friends and Oakland may well be proud of an institution which, without charitable aid or purpose, fulfills a want with so much grace, skill and success. The homelike appearance of the building and interior, the kind and -careful treatment of the suffering and their friends, a perfect cuisine and splendid servici have helped not a little In dispelling hospital dread and in making the East Bay Sanatorium a popular institution. As time passed on nnd the demands Increased, the East Bay Sanatorium has Improved its facilities. Tt was there that the X-Ray treatment of Lupus found its first exponent in Oak' land. There, also, a number of patients found diagnosis and verification of conditions, which the Roetgen Ray-projects on photographic sensitive plate or makes appear On thel'uoro-scopic screen. M. J.

Personally, Mr. Keller favors still farther shortening of the hours of labor. completed, will undoubtedly mor than double the business and influence of this concern. I Prominent among the many ob-r stacles that have stood in the way of Pacific Coast. far-removed fiom the fogs and bleak winds of the Pacific to the milder and more salubrious atmosphere of the Athens of the Pacific Slope. Founded by the Most Reverend Archbishop Alemany in the year 1S63, it ;was chartered with the privileges of a University by the State Legislature of California in the year 1S72. During its twenty-eight years of existence, it has steadily, year by year, sent out its graduates well equipped for the battle of life, to struggle for success in the various professions and avocations, o as. lawyers, doctors, merchants. .And -even in the ranks of the clergy, St. Mary's students have achieved an honorable position. ST. MARY'S COLLEGE. raphy, banking and commercial law form subjects among the many courses of study pursued in this institution, and show that no pains are spared to give as practical an education as possible and fit the student in the shortest space of time to -gain his living by his own exertions I There are two courses at St. Mary's College, 'the Collegiate and Commercial. The degrees of Bachelor- ofSci-ence, Master of. Science, Bachelor of Arts, Master of Arts, and Commercial diplomas are awarded to the successful graduates. .'-'v. ' ' The cuisine is select but substantial. There is a well-equipped infirmary for the sick students, i besides billiard ical well-being. Adjacent to the college are grounds devoted to athletics and these are constantly in use, during leisure' moments, by the students. As a consequence, the young men, In every instance, become living exemplars of the principle of a sound mind fnTa sound body. ''. Structurally speaking, St. Mary's is one of the finest buildings devoted to education in the country. It is six stories in height, built of brick with walls asl solid as granite, and commands one of the finest 'landscape views to be found in Alameda County. In a word, St. Mary's Is a model In every point from which It may be viewed. ' ; MISS HORTOH'S SCHOOL V Private Academy Which, Has Attained to Success. Among other evidences of the growth - of Oakland, the ' increasing support given to Miss Horton's School must not be overlooked. By a personal1 interview with Miss Horton these" are some of the facts learned of the history and growth of the school; that it 4s now sixteen years old: that there arin attendance one hundred "and forty pupils; that these are both girls and boys, varying in age from seven to nineteen years of age; "that, although definite preparation is made for University work this is far- from being the main, purpose of the school, which purpose might perhaps be summed up in the two words "INDIVIDUAL GROWTH.'-' To this end ,the training includes opportunity for development in some lines not included in, and not yet possible to, the public schools of our city. Instruction in modern languages begins early and is continued throughout the. entire course, so that a pupil has a practical return for his efforts in the power to pursue further literary or scientific study in either French or German, or in the added pleasure that a knowledge of these languages gives the foreign traveler. Any Tuesday or Thursday you jmay see twenty girls and boys busy at the Sloyd benches. These are preparing themselves, not to become "carpenters," as some suppose, but to handle tinued through the grammar grades. The writer understands that it may continue into the high, school years. If a student's course gives the time for it. There is also physical; training, through gymnastic exercises of great variety, for all ages. One cannot help feeling in passing .through the various rooms of this school that there is something beyond the "commonplace'' in the atmosphere that pervades it; that there is a steady effort to maintain high ideals, and that encouragement is given to each to offer only his best as his share in the school's growth. And yetk the one point which Miss Horton emphasized in conversation with the' interviewer more effectively, through this manual 4 was that increasing' love for honest training,, the tools of any occupation work of any kind whatsoever, was the or profession they may later chose to evidence of growth she desired to see. follow?, because of the-increased "phys- Oakland is justly proud of this ical and. mental power- which this School, which Is yearly becoming more training certainly gives. This work Is closely identified with her' activities begun by children 1 of eight and con- ' and interests.A The M. J. Keller Company is twon-1y-one years old. M. J. Keller began business in 1S79 at 1007 Broadway with one assistant. The force of employes now numbers nearly 200, occupying . the entire building at 1157 and 1159 Washington street. The names of : Keller is probably better known today throughout the Western States than that of any other business man on the Coast. Fourteen travelers are constantly scouring the" country in search for business, and "there is scarcely, a man west of the Rockies who has not, at some time, been personally reminded that Oakland Is the place where Keller lives. Incidentally, this feature has probably served as much as any other to build up this city to what it is today. Men's furnishing goods was-the sole line carried by Mr. Keller at the outset. lAter, a custom shirt manufacturing department was added, and Mr. Keller found his pace. Other departments were inaugurated . from time toitime until today' 18,000 square feet of floor snace is inadequate to accommodate the manufacturing plant of this (company. In" 1890, the business was incorporated, and, a system of profit-sharing adopted. As has been true in the experience of many others, this did not prove a complete success and was discontinued after a time. .The system has lately, been revived in a different form, however, and will be enlarged upon in the n"ar( future. Mr. Keller has ever been identified with the early closing movement in Oakland. His was the first furnishing goods store to remain closed on Sundays. The change in the closing hour from 9 to 8 o'clock p. m. was In- ucts of home manufactories ARE COMPELLED TO PAY A TAX THEREON, whereas. competitors, with plants located in foreign territory, and whose enterprise serves to enrich competing States. PAY NO TAX AT ALL. This is a statej of affairs which is generally considered unjust, and will undoubtedly receive attention eventually from the State Legislafure. I v 'V?

The now popular cry 'expansion" has been Mr. Keller's slogan for twenty-one years, and, though tha progress of the company, as guided by his tireless hand has been rapid, yet, his plans for the coming year, when progress of the M.
