A set of books adapted to a small retail business is first in-

The method of changing a set of hooks from single to double

theoretical part of double entry, he commences a simple form of
books by this method and advances step by step through the more
complicated form-- as used in partnership, commission and bank-

of a complete s,-t of books which are kept in connection with our

towards success in the ministry. Its course of study is broad
and practical; its ideals are high; its work thorough; its methods
fresh, systematic, clear and simple. It proposes to suit its
course of study and its methods of instruction to the culture and
capacity of the students who seek its advantages.
We study the Word of Cod. The Bible is our chief text-
book. All of our studies encircle the Word. We aim to make
its teachings plain, its doctrines luminous, and to furnish the best
methods for its exegesis, explanation, and illustration to the
people. We want to send forth men trained in the Scriptures ;
men who know their Bibles, and can explain its teachings plainly
in the light of modern learning, and with the power of the best
methods of interpretation; — in short— our aim is to send forth
able ministers of the Word, who can give clearly defined view- of
its doctrines, and abundantly support them by a "'Thus saith the
Lord". To teach biblical, rather than a scientific theology;
to unfold a ( brist-centred theology, expressed in scriptural
terms, rather than a dogmatic theology cast in scientific phrase,
is t lie :.iin of tlii> school.
We do not advise the study of the Scriptures in the original
languages, unless previous culture and mental discipline have
prepared 'In 1 mind to undertake the task so thoroughly as t<> make
it a source of power to the student. To such, instruction in < rreek
:iikI I lebrew is open.
Much of the work is done through lectures, with thorough
expositions and practical reviews. Special attention is given to
essays and discussions l>y the class in connection with our Bible
studies. The design oJ the school is to send oul earnest, practi-
cal, evangelical preachers, who ^IimII do intelligent and loyal ser-
vice for Christ and the ( Ihurch.

Do not come expecting help, unless you make definite ar-
rangements beforehand. We generally require students to pay
for a month, at least, in advance, so that we can learn whether
they are worthy of aid. It is thoughl besl to cultivate a feeling
of independence by requiring students to work for help allowed.
In some cases we grant loan- to advanced students.
A student of good moral character, diligence, and ability
will always find some way to finish his education.
Atlanta, being easily reached by railroads from every direc-
tion i- especially adapted for the location of a school, (lark
University is on a high, heavily-wooded ridge, where there is
plenty of pure air and water. There are several line mineral
springs on the grounds. Over460acres afford ample room for
healthful recreation. We are near enough the city for business

purposes, and far enough away to render it easy to keep the stu-
dents away from its temptations. The East Tennessee, Virginia
& Georgia Railroad will land students close to the College.
All students have the use of the University Library, and also
of the valuable collection of religious and theological works in the
library of the School of Theology.
The Reading Rooms arc well supplied with secular and relig-
ious papers and magazines.
The tine apparatus, presented by Mrs. E. H. Gammon, adds
great interest to the study of the Natural Sciences.

There are four Literary Societies — two conducted by the
gentlemen and two by the ladies, of the Collegiate Department,
and one by the students of the School of Theology.
