Second and Third Classes.
Quantitative analysis constitutes the work of these classes. Those students who have completed satisfactorily the work given to them during the first year, and who have passed a practical examination, lasting one week, are allowed to commence quantitative analysis.page 100
The quantitative course includes analyses, either partial or complete, of [unclear: the] following series, each estimation being, at least, duplicated:
(*1) Zinc Sulphate; (2) Barium Chloride; (3) Alum; (4) Chrome Alum; (5) [unclear: sulphate] of Iron and Amonia; (6) Blue Vitriol; (7) Calcite; (8) Calamine, (9) [unclear: Galena] (10) Chalcopyrite; (11) Orthoclase; (12) Kaolin; (13) Hematite; (14) Pyrolusite [unclear: and] Chlorine, valuation; (15) Soda Ash, valuation; (16) Bleaching powder, [unclear: valuation] (17) Cerusite; (18) Smithsonite; (19) Blende: (20) Coal, proximate; (21) Coal, [unclear: ultimate] and heating power; (22) Stibnite; (23) Realgar: (24) Blast furnace slag; [unclear: (25)] Lead furnace slag; (26) Pig iron; (27) Bismuth litharge; (28) Commercial lead; [unclear: (29)] Spelter; (30) Regulus; (31) Beryl; (32) Illmenite; (33) Chromite; (34) [unclear: Saltpeter] soil; (35) Mineral water.
Besides this course, there is the usual practice in the lire assay of the ores of [unclear: lead] and silver, of argentiferous and auriferous native compounds and artificial [unclear: products], and in the docimastic valuation of the ores and the most prominent metals.
A short course in quantitative blow-pipe analysis is required. Also a course [unclear: in] determinative mineralogy.
Special students may pursue, at their discretion, the study and analysis of [unclear: any] class of ores or metallurgic products. Young men, who have neither the time [unclear: and] means to spare, to take the full course, may accomplish much in the way of [unclear: chemists] analysis by devoting their entire time to it during the course of a single year.
