Detailed Statements IN REGARD TO Tjhe Several ^Departments of the Co/teye. ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS. The readei- of the outline of courses will notice that three under- graduate degrees are offered by the Literary Department of the college — B. A., B. S., Ph. B. Jt will also be seen from the follow- ing schedule that the preparation required for, the different courses is not the same. B. A. Degree — The Bachelor of Arts course offers special instruc- tion in the departments of Latin and Greek. This course pre- supposes one [year of preparatory work in Greek, two in Latin. In order to be allowed to enter upon the B. A. course the ap- plicant must stand an approved examination in English. Latin- Greek, and Mathematics. B. S. Degree — The Bachelor of Science course oft'ei^s special work in Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics. Instead of Latin and Greek, French and German are studied. In order to be allowed to enter upon the B. S. course, the applicant must stand an ap- pi'oved examination in English and Mathematics. Ph. B. Degree — The Bachelor of Philosophy course offei^s special work in Histoi'y, Psychology, and English. The courses in French and German are required. In order to be allowed to enter upon the Ph. B. course, the applicant must stand an ap- proved examination in English, Mathematics, History, and Geog- raphy. LL. B. Degree — No entrance examination is exacted of law stu- dents who apply for the Junior class. They are expected to have a good elementary English education. Applicants for the Senior class are examined in the Junior course. THE MASTER'S DEGREE. Each school of colleffiate instruction offers work looking toward the Master's Degree. Applicants for the M. A., M. S., or Ph. M. degree will be required to elect thi'ee coui'ses of study, not more MILLSAPS COLLEGE. 19 than two of which may be in the same school or under the same pro- fessor. The principal subject chosen — known as the major course — will be expected to employ one-half of the applicant's time ; each of the minor courses, one-quarter of his time. It is expected that the -applicant for a master's degree, after receiving a bachelor's degree, spend at least one year at Millsaps College engaged in graduate study. In most cases non-resident study during two or more years will be accepted as the equivalent of one year's resident work. All examinations must be stood in .Jackson. Attention is directed to the schedule of degrees following and to the statement in connection with the account of work done in each department. The courses so announced are major courses ; a minor course is expected to require for its completion half the time required for the completion of a major course. M. A. Degree — To take the Master of Arts Degree the student must choose for his major course, Latin, Greek, Philosophy, or English. His minor courses must be in schools in which he has already finished the full course for the bachelor's degree. JVI. S. Degree — To take the Master of Science Degree, the student must choose his major and one minor course from the Schools of Chemistry, Physics, Geology, and Mathematics. His second mi- nor must be in a school in which he has already finished the full course for the bachelor's degree. Ph. M. Degree— To take the Master of Philosophy Degree, the student must choose his major course from the Schools of Psy- chology, History, French, German, and English. His minor courses must be in schools in which he has already finished the full course for the bachelor's degree. Entrance £xaminations. The authorities of Millsaps College prefer that applicants for ad- Tnission into the College should submit themselves to the regular test of an entrance examination. But in case Principals of Preparatory Schools desire to have their pupils admitted on trial without exami- nation, arrangements looking to that end may be made as result of correspondence with the College authorities. Special attention is called to the following statement of require. ments for admission into the several departments. L English— The candidate for admission into the Freshman Class will be examined on the equivalent of the work done during the second year of the Preparatory Department. He is expected to be thoroughly familliar with grammatical forms and must be ac- quainted with the elementary facts of practical rhetoric. He will 20 MILLSAPS COLLEGE. be required to write a short composition — correct ir spelling, jiunc- tuation and grammar — on subject chosen from the books assigned to be read for that purpose. The following books are well suited for use in preparing students for admission into the Ereshman Class : Grammar : Whitney and Lockwood's English Grammar or Longmans' School Grammar. Composition and Rhetoric : Genung's Outlines of Rhetoric, or But- ler's School English. It is desirable that the preparatory schools make use of the lists of books for reading and study looking toward the uniform entrance requirements in English, adopted by the principal American col- leges. This year we shall examine on any two books from the 1898 list. In 1899 we shall examine on four books. Thereafter we shall require preparation on all the books announced. 1898. For Reading— Milton's Paradise Lost— Books I. and II. : Pope's Homer's Iliad, Books I., VI., XXII., and XXIV. : The Sir Roger De Coverley Papers from the Spectator : Goldsmith's Vicar of Wakefield : Carlyle's Essay on Burns : Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient Mariner ; Southey's Life of Nelson. For Study — Shakspere's Macbeth. Burke's Speech on Concilation with America : DeQuincy's Flight of a Tartar Tribe. 1899. For Reading— Cooper's The Last of the Mohicans : Dry- den's Palamon and Arcite : The Sir Roger De Coverly Papers : Goldsmith's The Vicar of Wakefield : Coleridge's the Rime of the Ancient Mariner : DeQuincey's Flight of a Tartar Tribe : Pope's Homer's Iliad. Books, I., VI.. XXII and XXIV : Low- ell's Vision of Sir Launfal : Hawthorne's House of Seven Ga- bles. For Study — Shakspere's Macbeth : Milton's Paradise Lost. Books I. and II.; Burke's Speech en Conciliation with America: Car- lisle's Essay on Burns. 1900. For Reading — Dryden's Palamon and Arcite : Pope's Iliad, Books I., VI., XXII. and XXIV.: The Sir Roger De Covei-ley Papers from the Spectator : Goldsmith's The Vicar of Wake- field : Scott's Ivanhoe : De-Quincey's Flight of a Tartar Tribe : Cooper's Last of the Mohicans : Tennyson's Princess : Lowell's Vision of Launfal. For Study— Shakspere's Macbeth : Milton's Paradise Lost. Books I. and II.: Burke's Speech on Conciliation with America: Mac- aulay's Essays on Milton and Addison. All the books on these lists appear in the form of carefully anno- tated editions in the Longmans's English Classics (Longmans, Green &Co., New York), in the Student's Series of English Classics (Leach, MILLSAPS COLLEGE. 21 Shewell and Co., Boston), and in the Standard English Classics (Ginn & Co., Boston). II. Latin and Greek— Applicants for admission into the Fresh- man Class are, examined on the work of the Preparatory Depart- ment. This, as may be seen, comprises, in Latin, the reading- of four books of Caesar's Gallic War, or an equivalent ; in Greek, the satisfactory completion of The First Greek Book ; and in both lan- guages a careful study of the forms and of the leading principles of the syntax, xipplicants are expected, also, to have some facility in translating simple Latin and Greek at sight and in winting easy English sentences in Latin and Greek prose. To be more specific, a course of study is outlined below for the guidance of the teachers of preparatory Latin and Greek through- out the State. FIRST YEAR. Latin — The First Latin Book f Collar and Daniell): Gradatim (Collar): Grammar (Bennett). SECOND YEAR. Latin —First Latin Readings (Arrowsmith and Whicher): Ctesar, Gallic War (Kelsey, 8th edition): New Latin Composition (Daniell): History (Creighton"s Primer). Greek— The First Greek Book (White); Anabasis (Goodwin and White): Grammar (Goodwin): History (Fytt'e's Primer.) To do satisfactorily the work here indicated, it will require five recitations a week of one hour each for two years in Latin : for one year in Greek. It is thought advisable to set before the students continuous pas- sages for translation as soon as practicable, and for this purpose selec- tions from Collar's Gradatim and something of the Anabasis may be read toward the end of the first year. It is recommended also, as a prerequisite to the best results, that throughout the first year, in both Latin and Greek, wi-itten exercises be made an essential part of each day's work. During the second year of the Latin course two exercises a week will be sufficient. Certainly as much history as is indicated above may be asked of the preparatory schools, but it is hoped that they will make a place also for works of a more discursive character, in which the stories of Greece and Rome will find more attractive, not to say romantic, treatment. III. Mathematics. New students applying for admission to the Freshman Class in Mathematics, unless they come from correlated schools (see first paragraph on Entrance Examinations), will be ex- amined on Arithmetic, Algebra to quadratic equations, and one 22 MILLSAPS COLLEGE. book of Geometry. Arithmetic. Teachers who are preparing- stu- dents for college are advised to give them a good course in Arith- metic, on account of both the practical and educational value of the subject. Algebra. It will, in most cases, be unwise for students, who have spent nine or ten months in the diligent study of Algebra under a competent teacher, to apply for Freshman work in Mathe- matics. Geometry. In learning Geometry, much depends upon a good start. A course in concrete Geometry, under a judicious teacher, will, it is believed, admirably prepare the way for clear ideas on the subject. The standards for entrance examinations are Wentworth's Gram" mar School Arithmetic, Wentworth's School Algebi'a, and Went- worth's New Plane Geometry. IV. History and Geography. An approved examination in Physical and Political Geography, and in American History, is required for entrance into Freshman History. Harper's School Geography and Montgomery's Leading Facts of American History ai'e recommended as covei'ing the ground of the examination.

This school embraces two departments : I. Mental Philosophy, Logic, and the History of Philosophy. II. Ethics, Political Economy, Christian Evidences. Throughout this School of Philosophy text-books and books of reference of the most approved character will be used, and the method of instruction will be by lectures, by daily oral examina- tionss by analysis of subjects studied, and by original theses to be presented by the students on topics prescribed relating to the va- rious depart7nents of the school. The English Bible and Steele's Outlines of Bible Study will be used as text-books in connection with the Department of Biblical Instruction. COURSE LEADING TO THE MASTER'S DEGREE. Applicants for the degree of M. A. or M. S. will be required, in this department, to devote at least one year to the study of Hamil- ton's Metaphysics, the History of Philosophy and the Evidences of Christianity. Text-Books : Hamilton's Lectures, History of Philosophy (Schwegler), Divine Origin of Christianity (Storrs). 24 MILLSAPS COLLEGE. ii. the school of the english language and literature. Professor Weber. During- the Freshman year the leading i^rinciples of practical rhetoric are reviewed. The student is drilled in careful expression by means of exercises in composition, study of work-history and training in the analysis of synonyms. The fall session will be given to the study of rhetoric and of etymology. It is believed wise to consider the foreign element of the English vocabulary before undertaking the study of the native element, inasmuch as the student is supposed to have had two years' drill in Greek and Latin before entering the Freshman class. Syle's From Milton to Tennyson is used in the belief that it is wiser to know a few poems well than to have command of facts and dates concerning a wider range of English literature. Eight works of English authors constitute the parallel reading. During the spring term of the Sophomore Year the class begins the study of the historical development of the English language, from Alfred to Chaucer. Cook's First Book in Old English is used- Special attention is paid to the native element in the English vocab- ulary. Emei'son's History of the English Language serves as a commentary on the language of the selections as arranged in the Chronological order. Pancoasfs American Literature is used and for parallel reading ©ight works of American authoi-s are read. In the Junior year attempt is made to study some rhetorical form in a practical way. Some special study of argumentation will be undertaken. Several famous arguments will be analyzed and briefs will be prepared. During the spring term four plays of Shakspere will be read ; the parallel reading is eight plays of the Pre-Shakspe- rian period. The Senior class will enter upon a study of the early history of Literary Criticism. The class will begin with a careful study of Aristotle's Poetics and Hoi^ace's Ars Poetica. Attention will then be turned to Sidney's Defense of Poetry, Ben Jonson"s Timber. Dry- den's Essay on Dramatic Poetry. French criticism will be repre- sented by Boileau's L'Art Poetique ; German criticism, by Lessing's Laokoon. The spring term will be given up to a careful study of modern English poetry as a vehicle of the poefs philosophy of life. Tenny- son, Wordsworth and Browning, will be read in copious selections. The special course required of applicants for the degree of Ph. B. will be given up to the study of Nineteenth Century literature. During the fall term attention will be turned to English literatre. In the spring term American literature will demand attention; La- nier's Poems and Poe's Tales and Poems will be carefullv studied. MILLSAPS COLLEGE. 25 COURSES LEADING TO THE MASTER'S DEGREE. A MAJOR COURSE IN ENGLISH LITERATURE— The Student that wishes to make a special study of literature, is required to do a small amount of language work About 750 lines of Old English poetry — Maldon and Brunanburg (Ci'ow) and Judith (Cook) will be read, special attention being given to the verse, in the light of Sie* vers's epoch — making investigations into the form of Germanic vez'se. Selected chapters from Brooke's History of Early English Litera- ture and ten Brink's Early English Literature will cover the ear- lier periods of our literature. The work in literary investigation will be in the study of the forms of literature. Six essays of 2000 words ^ach will be required. In these essays the treatment of the subject is to be historical as well as critical. Definite analyses of each great literary impulse must be made, and illustrations sub- stantiating the analysis must be cited from the books assigned to be read. THE EPIC— The Iliad, Beowulf, The Nibelungen Lied, The Divine Comedy, Paradise Lost, Old Englih Ballads (Gummere). THE LYRIC — Palgrave's Golden Treasury of Lyrical Poems, Parts I and II : Book of Elizabethan Lyrics (Schelling). THE NOVEL — George Eliot's Silas Marner ; Meredith's The Egoist : Howell's Rise of Silas Lapham : Austen's Sense and Sensi- bility ; Henry James's An International Episode. THE ROMANCE — Hawthorne's House of Seven Gables ; Stevenson's Treasure Island ; Scott's Ivanhoe : Doyle's Micah Clarke : Craw- ford's Roman Singer ; Page's Marse Chan. etc. THE DRAMA — Manley's Specimens of Pre-Shaksperian Drama — three volumes ; Marlowe's Faustus, and Edward II ; Greene's Friar Bacon and Friar Bungay. THE ESSAY — Montaigne's Essays ; Ben Jonson's Timber ; the Es- says of Cowley, Bacon, and Lamb. A MAJOR COURSE IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE— Preliminary to un- dertaking this work, it is required that the student complete the course in Gothic offered by the Modern Language Department. Several Old English poems will be read : Christ (Cook) : Elene (Kent), and Andreas (Baskervill). A serious study of Beowulf and the Beowulf-question will be undertaken. It is hoped that McClum- pha's translation of Wuelcker's Grundriss Zur Geschichte der Angelsaechsischen Litteratur will be ready in time for use in this work. Professor Weber's private Beowulf-collections will be at the service Of the student. The Sievers-Cook Old English Grammar will be in constant use. Selections from Alfred's Orosius and Alfric's Homilies will be read. Cook's pamphlet on the Phonological Investigation of Old English being used as guide in linguistic study. 26 MILLSAPS COLLEGE. The three volumes of ten Brink's Early English Literature will serve as basis for the work in the history of literature, the section of work on the Epic, together with the essay of 2000 words, required of the students of the literary course is also assigned to the students of the language course. iii. the school of latin and greek. Professor Swearingen. In the outline of the course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts the texts and editions used in this department are enumei^ated. For the guidance of students and dealers the titles are there given in full, but it is not to be understood that in every case the entire ground indicated will be covered in class. The work of the Freshman Class is limited in extent and is meant to be correspondingly thorough. The end in view is to furnish the student with an accurate foundation for classical scholarship. The entire session is therefore devoted to the study of Cicero and Xeno- phon. The forms are carefully reviewed, the systematic study of the syntax is begun, and the importance of acquiring a vocabulary is at all times emphasized. Throughout the year daily practice in infllecting and construing is kept up, and'the principles of syntax met with in the texts are practically applied to the writing of weekly exercises in pi-ose composition. The main object of the course outlined for the Sophomore Class is to read the texts selected with some appreciation of their value as works of art. To this end the class is first put in possession of the literary and historical setting of each selection by a required course of parallel reading, supplemented by informal lectures. The at- tempt is then made to teach the student to understand, without translating, the less involved passages of the authors read and to use in translating, a pure English idiom. This ability to grasp the thought in the order of the original is the necessary condition of an adequate appreciation of the classics as literature. Reading at sight, thei'efore, forms a not unimportant part of the work of the class room, while portions of the texts are, from time to time, re- quired to be turned, in writing, into the best English which the class can command. The Junior Class is assumed to have reached a somewhat ad- vanced stage in the study of the classics. Matters of grammatical detail are therefore subordinated, in the work of this year, to studies of an historical and literary kind. Homer and Vergil have been purposely deferred until this time, when the class shall, pre- sumably, at least, have attained such facility in translating that the MILLSAPS COLLEGE. 27 readings may be rapid and extensive and the interpretation intelli- gent and appreciative. Incidentally a study, iu outline, will be made of the Homeric Question, of the Iliad and Aeneid as types o^ the epic, and the history in general of this form of poetry. The satires of Horace are made the basis of a running commentary on some of the most significant customs and institucions of the time- In the reading of his Epistles a critical and historical examination of his views on literature is undertaken, and due attention is paid to his philosophic reflections as an expression of the maturer thoughts and higher aspirations of the enlighted pagan. In the study of the Attic tragedy the history of the Greek drama and of dramatic contests at Athens is taken up, and the results of recent excavations on the sites of ancient theatres are laid under contribu- tion to supply the setting and technical information necessary to a clear conception of a Greek play on the stage, and so to an intelli- gent estimate of its dramatic as well as its literary worth. COURSES LEADING TO THE MASTER'S DEGREE. Two courses are ottered leading to the degree of Master of Arts. The one is a literary course, designed to continue the work of the Junior year, and has to do chiefly with the origin and development of the Greek drama and of Roman satire as forms of literature. The other is more technical in character, and deals almost exclu- sively with the subject of epigraphy. In both courses a minimum of history and philology is required. The scope of each course is indicated by the schedule which fol- lows, of the texts to be read and of the works of reference to be used in connection therewith : I. In Either Course : Remnants of Early Latin (Allen). Grammaire Compareedu Grec et du Latin (Henry), 5th edition, or the translation of the 2nd edition. History of Greece (Abbott). History of Rome (Shuckburgh). II. In the Course in Literature : A. Latin. Roman Satire (Lucilius, Horace, Persius and Juvenal.) The Roman Satura (Nettleship.) Roman Literature (Cruttwell). Latin Poetry (Tyrrell). B. Greek. Aeschylus, the Oresteia. Sophocles, the Oedipus Plays. Euripides, the Alcestis, the Hippolytus, the Medea- 28 MILLSAPS COLLEGE. Aristophanes, the Frogs. Das Griechische Theater (Doerpfeld und Reisch). Greek Literature (Jevons). Greek Poetry (Jebb) . III. In the Course in Epigraphy : A. Latin. An introduction to the Study of Latin Inscriptions (Egbert.) Cours d'Epigrapbie Latine (Cagnat.t Historical Latin Inscriptions (Rushforth). Exempla Inscriptionum Latinarum (Wilmanns) . B. Grecl: An Introduction to Greek Epigraphy (Robertson). Grammatik der attischen Inschriften Meisterhans). Greek Historical Inscriptions (Hicks). The Dialects of Greece (Smyth). Delectus Inscriptionum Graecarum (Cauer). Of the works here enumerated several are required only in part. The candidate is expected, for example, to have a general acquaint- ance with Doerpfeld's new theory of the Greek theatre' and of the evidence which led to his conclusions, but not necessarily to make a minute study of the-book. The collections of the. inscriptions, too, by Wilmanns, Hicks and Cauer, are not to be read entire, but to be consulted from time to time for further illustration of matters in- adequately presented in the introductions of Egbert and Robertson. The courses outlined above, in which Latin and Greek are offered conjointly, are major courses, but they can be so re-combined or modified as to form either a major or minor course in either sub- ject. iv. school of chemistry, experimental physics, and inor- ganic geology. Professor Muckenfuss. The rooms given up to the study of these subjects are modern both in size and convenience, and occupy the whole lower floor of Web- ster Science Hall. The recitation room opens into a dark room for photography and optical experiments and into a room specially isolated and designed to retain delicate -physical apparatus. It is connected by forty feet of folding doors with the general laboratory by which arrangement a large auditorium forty by sixty feet, is ob- tainable for public scientific entertainments. The general labora- tory opens conveniently into a small fuming room outside of the building so that vapors may not pass from one to the other, and is also connected with the store-room, over which an assistant pre- sides during laboratory hours. Gas, water, experiment tables, hoods MILLSAPS COLLEGE. 29 and pneumatic troughs are to be found in convenient places. The two front rooms are designed for a musevim and for 'analysis, while the basement is intended for assaying and other industrial work. In the undergraduate work of this dejjartment, elementary instruc- tion is given in experimental physics and inorganic geology and a full course is provided in inorganic, organic and analytic chemis- try, over half of which consists of individual student experimenta- tion. The policy of employing three assistants enables the depart- ment to give full efficiency to its equipment. Chemistry— This subject is taught by recitation and by work which each student must perform in the laboratory. Recitations will be fully illustrated by experiments under the charge of an assistant. It is aimed that the laboratory be kept well equipped with appa- ratus necessary to the correct appreciation of the science. Each student has his own desk and apparatus and is closely supervised, so that he may not only gain a true idea of the substances under in- spection, but also cultivate a hand careful to the smallest detail^ an eye observant of the slightest phenomenon, and habits of neat- ness, skill, and economy. The Sophmore course consists per week of four hours recitation, and two afternoons in the labratory experimenting with substances considered in the recitation. Library copies of Watt's Revised Dic- tionary, Thorpe's Applied Chemistry, and Roscoe and Schorlem- mer's Treatise are on hand for reference. In the latter part of the year's labratory work, special attention will be paid to inorganic preparations. Each student will make by approved industrial methods many typical salts and preserve them as specimens. The Junior course occupies three hours a week in the recitation room and two afternoons a week in the labratory upon the study of organic compounds. Many substances, especially those of physi- ological or medicinal importance, are prepared and studied. The class spend in addition one afternoon in qualitative analysis, as a continuation to their work of the previous year. The Seniors spend two afternoons weekly throughout the year upon the quantitative analysis of drinking water, fertilizers, soils, and ores. A special room is fitted up for this course. Finally, it should be said that in the laboratoz'y, text-books will be dispensed with as far as possible. The student is referred fve- quently to the Fresenius systems and to the works elsewhere men- tioned, but he will be taught to feel that the substances and apparatus around him are his alphabet. The teacher will be constantly on hand to guide and encourage, and will endeavor to inspii'e.a love for things, the basis of books. Experimental, Physics— Three hours a week are devoted by the Junior class to this study, the recitations being copiously illustrated 30 MILLSAPS COLLEGE. by experiments under the charge of an assistant. A general view of physics is gotten by the end of the third quarter, after which some special topics, as heat and electricity, or light and sound, are taken up in a more advanced way. The Senior course includes those topics that bear on both physics and chemistry, and is given in -form of lectures upon the history of physics and chemistry, theoretical physics and chemistry, and phj-s ical chemistry. All these subjects are not, of course, presented during the three quarters of a year that are included. Inorganic Geology — This subject occupies two hours a week during the Senior year, and includes the study of crystallography, physical and descriptive mineralogy, structural and dynamical geol- ogy. During the consideration of the last division, the class meets one afternoon every other week for field work within a radius of ten miles of Jackson. Descriptive mineralogv is taught by lectures and is well illustrated by crystal models and by a museum of 300 specimens collected from various parts of the world. COURSES LEADING TO THE MASTER'S DEGREE. Graduate work is offered in this department in chemistry, exper- imental physics, or inorganic geology. For eith-er course, in addi- tion a line of reading, 540 hours of laboratory work are required, being half of the college time for one year. ^ ■ v. the school of mathematics and astronomy. Professor Moore. The genei'al aim is to have the work of the department brought within such limits, and made so systematic and thorough as to se- cure to the student a mastery of leading principles and methods, for it is believed that only in this way, whether the end had in view is a practical application of the knowledge acquired, or mental discip- line and development, can the best results be obtained. While, in all tne classes, the text-book will furnish the basis for instruction, still the explanations and demonstrations of the Professor on leading and crucial points of the science must be regarded as an essential part of the course. The Freshman class studies Algebra and Geometry. In Algebra the aim will be to secure to the student, besides skill and accuracy in the performance of algebraic operations, an increased power of abstract analysis and reasoning. In Geometry the student will be aided in forming correct geometrical conceptions and in gaining an insight into the true spirit and methods of geometrical reasoning. Weekly original exercises will be required. In the Soptimore Year Plane and Spherical Trigonometry and MILLSAPS COLLEGE. 31 Surveying- are studied and completed, and Analytic Geometry is begun. Trigonometry receives the attention which its importance demands, and the course in surveying embraces recitations, field work with the tape, chain, compass and transit, and private work. During the second term, plane Analytic Geometry through the ellipse is studied, Nichols' Analytic Geometry, chapter 1—7. The Junior class completes Analytic Geometry and studies the Diffei^ential and IntegaL Calculus. The elegant methods of mathe- matical investigation claiming the student's attention during this year are shown to combine logical rigor with great efficiency, brev- ity and comprehensiveness. The aim is to secure to the student some degree of appreciation of these methods, and of skill in their use. The Junior B. A. class (3 hours per week) studies, during the first term, the ellipse, the hyperbola, loci of the second order, and higher plane curves. Nichols' chapters 8, 9, 10. Also, the introductory principles of the Calculus and the differentiation of functions. Tay- lor's Calculus, chapters 1 and 2. During the second term, this class studies the simple operations of integration with application to geom- etry and mechanics: successive differentiation; the demonstration of the incomplete forms of Taylor's aud McLaurin's formulas and their applications to the development of functions into series; maxima and minima of the functions of a single variable : tangents, normals and assumptotes ; integration of rational fractions ; integration by relationalization ; integration by parts ; lengths and areas of plane curves ; areas of surfaces of revolution, and volumes of solids of rev- olution. Taylor's Calculus, chapters 3, 4, 7, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16. The Junior B. S. Class, in addition to the above course, studies in two extra hours per week, the following course : First term, Solid Analytic Geometry, Nichols', Part II, entire. Second term, successive integration with applications to mechanics ; indetermi- nate forms ; the completion of Taylor's and Maclaurin's formulas with applications : functions of two or more variables with change of the independent variable ; direction of curvature ; singular points and curve tracing ; curvature, envelopes, and order of contact ; in- tegration by parts and by series ; the method of infinitesimals and integration as a summation with applications. Taylor, Chapters 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 12, 15 and 17. The Senior Class studies General Astronomy through the entire year. It is meant to supply that amount of information upon the subject which may be fairly expected of every "liberally educated" person. The course will give a clear and accurate presentation of leading astronomical facts, principles and methods. The members of the Senior Class who are candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Science study also during the first term, the Elements of Mechanics, 32 MILLSAPS COLLEGE. in which an acquaintance with the Calculus will be presumed, and during the second term, Determinants and the The Theory of Equa- tions. A full comprehension of the studies of this year will enable the student to enter upon enlarged investigations of the laws of force and motion as exhibited both in terrestial and celestial phe- nomena, and to pursue successfully more advanced studies in the modern mathematics. COURSES LEADING TO THE MASTER'S DEGREL. The following courses are offered, in this dejoartment. to appli- cants for the Master's Degree : I. For the M. A. and Ph. M. Degrees — 1. Acoustics and Optics, (Bartlett); 2. Spherical and Practical Astronomy (Chauvenet, Vol. I.); 3. Theory of Instruments (Chauvenet, Vol. II.): 4. History of Astronomy. II. For the M. S. Degree — 1. Differential Equations (Murray): 2. Analytical Mechanics ; 3. Mechanical Astronomy ; 4. History of As- tronomy. vi. the school of history. Professor Hanner. The advantages to be derived from the study of history are two. fold : Those which make for mental discipline and those which con- tribute to our stock of necessary information. Its disciplinary value is manifested in an increased power to think, in the habit acquired of thinking by orderly and correct methods, and in the gaining of a knowledge of one's own powers of accomplishment. Those powers of the niind which the study of history especially develops are mem- ory, judgment, and the power of expression. Dates, those bugbears of many students, while they lose most of their terrors when a rela- tion of cause and effect has been established between the events for which they stand, serve to inculcate that accuracy and definiteness of recollection so much to be desired. The problems of history are the problems of every day life, and as such they can not be solved by any set rules or formiil*, but tlie judgment must be exercised in a greater degree than in any other study. Another significant advantage of this study is that it may give valuable training of the powers of expression, both oral and written, n the practice of narration and in the supplying of topics for both brief and long composition work. In law and journalism the infor- mation that it supplies is indispensable, and foi- every citizen it is needed for the comprehension of literature, for the understanding MILLSAPS COLLEGE. 33 of political institutions and for the basis of a well-founded, intelli- gent love of country. The course offered extends through three years ; the first year is devoted to the study of the Eastern and the European peoples : the second year to England and the United States ; the third yeai- to the constitutional history of the United States. The first quarter of the Freshman year will be given to the study of the Eastern nations and Greece, especial attention being paid to the latter. The student will be assigned parallel reading in Grote, Cox, Sankey, and Curtius, which are to be found in the College Li- brary. Roman History will be studied during the second quarter. Gib- bon, Capes. Merivale, Beesley, Smith, and Mommsen will afford parallel reading. The third and fourth quarters will be devoted to the study of Me- dieval and Modern (European) History. The History of England will be studied during the first term of the Sophomore year. Macaulay, Hume, Green, Lecky, Gardiner, Stubbs, and Morris will be used as parallel reading. The second term of the Sophomore ahd the whole of the J unior year are given to the study of our own country and people. The Sophomore class will study the period between 17(35 and LStio : and the Junior class the institutions and constitution of the United States, using an abridged edition of Bryce's Commonwealth as text. The class room work during the second term of the Sophomore and during the Ju- nior year will be supplemented with readings from Schouler. Ban. croft, McMaster, Adams, Fisher, Hart. COURSE LEADING TO THE MASTER'S DEGREE. A course in histoi'y, whose aim is to develop the power of investi- gation and criticism, is ottered. The student will be required to prepare original papers on topics relating to Amei-ican History. These papers will be read and discussed at such times as the Pro- fessor in charge may designate. In addition to these essays, oral reports on assigned portions of such writers as Schouler, Cui'tis, Bancroft, Bryce, Lecky, Hil- dreth, will be heard and discussed at regular meetings. VII. THE SCHOOL OF THE MODERN LANGUAGES. FRENCH AND GERMAN. Professor Hanner. A course extending through two years is ottered in each of these languages. The aim of the course is to give the student a thorough 34 MILLSAPS COLLEGE. mastery of the fundamental principles of the two languages, a cor- rect pronunciation of French and of German, and a fair acquaint- ance with the literature of both nations. The first term of the Freshman year is devoted to the study of Grammar, to the translating of simple English sentences and idioms into the corresponding French and German, and to daily practice in pronunciation. During the second term of the Freshman year the class will read easy prose, especial attention being given to form work, to an idio- matic translation, and to the application of the rules learned during the first term. The exercises in pronunciation, and the translation of English into French and German, are continued throughout the year. The importance of acquiring a full and accurate vocabulary is constantly impressed upon the student. In the Sophomore year the minor details of Grammar are subor- dinated, and the languages are studied from a literary standpoint. During the first term of this year the class in French will study snch representative prose writers as Victor Hugo, Balzac, Daudet. Merimee and Halevy. The class in German will read during the same time a production of Schiller and one of Storm. During the second term, the class in French will make a critical study of some of the masterpieces of the dramatic artists of the seventeenth century. The class in German will devote the second term to Heine and Goethe, and will also make a study of some of the most celebrated of the shorter poems of the language. Throughout the session weekly exercises in translating English into French and German are required. Class-room work is supple- mented with parallel reading, on which reports are had from time to time. COURSES LEADING TO THE MASTER'S DEGREE. Two courses will be offered to applicants for the Master's Degree. I. A course in Gothic and Middle High German. The texts used will be : Gothic Grammar (Bi^aune); Gotische Etymologic (Feist): Mittelhochdeutsche Grammatik (Paul): Armer Heinrich (Robert- son) ; Nibelungenlied (Piper) ; History of German Literature (Scherer). II. A course in Old French. The Chanson de Roland will be studied from a literary and a comparative standpoint. The relation between modern and old French will be traced. Brachet's Histor- ical Grammar and G. Paris's La Litterature Francaise au Moyen Age will also be studied. MILLSAPS COLLEGE. 35 Department of iprofesslonal Education* Cbe Haw ScbooU THE FACULTY. Rev. William Beltox Murrah, D. D., LL. D.. President. Edward Mayes, LL. D., Dean. Assisted bv selected and able occasional Lecturers. In the original foundation of Millsaps College it was designed by its promoters to establish, in due season and when the success of the Literary Department should be assured, a Department of Profes- sional Education, embodying a Law and a Theological School. In the year 1896 the time came vhen. in the judgment of the Trustees, it was possible and proper to establish the Law Depart- ment. Accordingly they directed that, at the beginning of the then next session, the doors of this institution should be opened for students of law": and Professor Edward Mayes was engaged to take the active control and instruction of that class. Our Law School was not. even then, in any sense an experiment. Before that step was determined on a respectable class was already secured for the first session. Dr. Mayes came to us with over four- teen years of experience as a law professor in the State University, and with a reputation for ability and skill as an instructor w^hich was thoroughly established. He had already secured the valuable assistance of a number of most accomplished lawyers, who promised to deliver occasional lectures, thus adding greatly to the interest and variety of the instruction offei'ed. These gentlemen were, besides others whose aid was afterwards obtained, Judge J. A. P. Campbell, ex-Chief Justice of the Supi-eme Court: Hon. Frank Johnston, ex- Attorney-General : Hon. S. S. Calhoon, ex-Circuit Judge and President of the Constitutional Convention : Hon. Thos. A. McWillie, State Reporter. 36 MILLSAPS COLLEGE. The total attendance during- the first year was twenty-eight, of whom fifteen were classed as Seniors. At the expiration of the college year fifteen students presented themselves to the Hon. H. C. Conn, Chancellor, presiding over the Chancery Court, for examina- tion for license to practice law, in conformity with the requirements of the Annotated Code of 1892. They were subjected to a rigid written examination, in open court, and their written answers were, as the law directs, forwarded by the Chancellor to the Su- preme Judges. Every applicant 2J(^ssed this ordeal successfully and received his license. Not one failed. The names of those fifteen young- lawyers are given on page 3 of this catalogue. We point with pride to this result of the first year's work of our school. The nature of the examination passed, being held by the Chancellor in his official character, and the examination answers being graded and valued exclusively by the Judges of the Supreme Court, puts beyond question or cavil the genuineness of that result. We do not ask of our patrons, or of those who may contemplate becoming our patrons, to accept any statement of our own, or any finding of our own. The finding and the statement are those of the Judicial Department of the State : and every law graduate of Mill- saps College stands before the world endorsed not by the College alone (which is much), but also by the State itself, speaking through its Supreme Judges. This is more than can be said for any other young lawyers in the State. None other have such a double ap- proval as part of their regular course. The location of the school at Jackson enables the managers to oft'er to the students extraordinary advantages, in addition to the institution itself. Here is located the strongest bar of the State, whose management of their cases in court, and whose arguments will furnish an invaluable series of object lessons and an unfailing- fountain of instruction to the students. Here also are located courts of all kinds known in the State, embracing not only the ordi- nary Municipal and the Circuit and Chancery Courts, but also the United States Court and the Supreme Court. Thus the observant student may follow the history and course of eases in actual litiga- tion, froin the lowest tribunal to the highest : and observe, in their practical operation, the nice distinction between the State and Federal jurisdiction and practice. Hei*e also is located the extensive and valuable State Law Library, unequaled in the State, the privi- leges of which each student may enjoy v.-ithout cost. Here, too, where the Legislature convenes every second year, the student has an opportunity, without absenting himself from his school, to wit- ness the delioerations of that body and observe the passage of the laws which, in after life, he may be called upon to study and apply : thus he acquires a knowledge of the methods and practice of legis- lation. MILLS A PS COLLEGE. 37 REQUIREMENTS. Applicants for admission to the Junior class must be at least nine- teen years of age : those for admission to the Senior Class must be at least twenty. Students may enter the .Junior Class without any preliminary examination, a good English elementary education being all that is required. Students may enter the Senior Class upon satisfactory examination on the matter of the Junior course or its equivalent. Xo student %Yill be graduated on less than five months of actual attendance in the school. Each student will be required to present satisfactory certificates of good moral character. Each student will be required to pay a tuition fee upon entrance. of fifty dollars for the session's instruction. Xo rebate from this fee will be made because a student may desire to attend for a period less than a full session. COURSE OF STUDY. The full course of study will consist of two years, the Junior and the Senior, each comprising forty -weeks, five exercises per week. The instruction will consist mainly of daily oral examination of the students on lessons assigned in standard text-books. Formal written lectures will not be read. The law is too abstruse to be learned in that way. The professor will accompany the examina- tion by running comments upon the text, illusti-ating and explain- ing it, and showing how the law as thei'ein stood has been modified or reversed by recent adjudications and legislation. The course will be carefully planned and conducted so as to meet the requirements of the "Mississippi law in respect to the admission of applicants to pi'actice law. by examination before the Chancery Court, and will therefore embrace all of the titles prescribed by law for that examination, viz : (1) The law of Real property; (2) The law of Personal property : (3) The law of Pleading and Evidence : (4) The Commercial Law : (5) The Criminal Law: (6) Chancery and Chancery Pleadings : (7j The Statute Law of the State : (8) The Constitution of the State and the L'nited States. The objects set for accomplishment by this school are two : First. to prepare young men for examination for license to practice law, in such manner as both to ground them thoroughly in elementary legal principles and also to prepare them for examination for license with assurance of success ; Secondly, to equip them for actual practice by a higher range of legal scholarship than what is merely needed for a succefsful examination for license. Therefore our course of study is so arranged as fully to meet both of these ends. First — The curriculum of the Junior Class will embrace each of 38 MILLSAPS COLLEGE. the eight subjects on which the applicant for license is required hy the Code to be examined. A careful, detailed and adequate course is followed, so that any student, even although he shall never have read any law before coming to ns, if he will apply himself with rea- sonable fidelity, can go before the Chancellor, at the expiration of his Junior year, with a certainty of success. The preparation of applicants for license, in one year, will be, in short, a specialty of this school. When a student shall have completed his Junior year, he will have open to him either one of two courses : He may stand his ex- amination for 'license before the Chancellor, or he may stand his examination before the law professor simply for advancement to the Senior Class if he does not care to stand for license at that time If he shall be examined before the Chancellor, and pass, he will be admitted to the Senior Class, of course, and without further exami- nation, in case he shall desire to finish his course with us and take a degree of Bachelor of Laws. On the other hand, if he prefers to postpone his examination for license, he can be examined by the professor for advancement merely, and stand his test for license at the hands of the court at the end of the Senior year. As stated above, the Senior year is designed to give to the student a broader and deeper culture than is needed only for examination for a license. It is not. strictly speaking, a post-graduate course, since it must be taken before graduation : but it is a post-licentiate course, and the degree conferred at its conclusion represents that much legal accomplishment in excess of the learning needed for license to practice. More specifically stated the course of study for each year will be as follows : THE JUNIOR YEAR. FIRST TERM. SECOND TERM. Blackstone's Commentaries, Clarke's Criminal Law. Stephen on Pleading. Clarke s Criminal Procedure. 1st vol. Greealeaf on Evidence. Kent's Commentaries (Commer- Smith on Personal Property. cial Chapters). Mississippi Code, 1892. Barton's Suit in Equity.

The Senior Class is required to attend the recitations of the Junior Class, 'by way of review, and to be prepared for daily questioning on the daily lesson of the Junior Class Moot Courts will be conducted under the direction of the professor in charge, in which the young men will be carefully instructed and drilled in the practical conduct of cases. 40 MILLSAPS COLLEGE. Cbe [preparatory Department, Head Master Ricketts. Assistant Master Bailey. The main object of this Department is to prepare students for the Freshman class of the College. The lack at present of good train- ing schools in our State makes the need for such a department im- perative. To students who find it necessary to leave home in order to fit themselves for college, we offer special advantages. By coming here they will be quickly and thoroughly prepared for the regular college classes. Young men who are prepared for college in their English studies, but who are behind in their Latin or Greek, will find in this department the facilities they need for bring up these studies. requirements for admission. No student will be admitted into this Department who is under 12 years of age. For entrance into the First Y_ear Preparatory Class, the pupil must be able to read well, and must display a fair knowledge of the rudiments of Englsh Grammar, Geography, and Arithmetic. In other words, he should be familiar with the leading facts in descriptive geography, particularly that of Europe ana America ; should be pi'epared to solve intelligently examples in Grammar School Arithmetic to Compound Interest : and in English Grammar, should know well the parts of speech and their modifica- tion, and the construction and analysis of simple sentences. Applicants for admission into the Second Year Class will be ex- pected to have completed Geogra^jhy, LTnited States History, Gram" mar School Arithmetic, Algebra to Fractions and Intermediate Grammar. In case Latin is studied the candidate will be examined on Collar and Daniell's First Latin Book, or its equivalent. As the transition from disconnected sentences to Caesar would be too ab- rupt for most students, selections from Viri Romae are j-ead in class during the last quarter of the first year, in connection with the First Latin Book. It is therefore recommended that students pre- paring to enter the Ctesar class read at least fifty pages in this or MILLSAPS COLLEGE. 41 some equivalent text-book. During the past session the class in Caesar read the first four books of the Gallic War. Greek is begun in the second year of the Preparatory course, White's First Geek Book being the text-book used. Pupils are thoroughly drilled on the forms of the language, and are also famil- iarized with the principles of syntax treated of in the latter part of the First Book. This language is so taught as to render the stu- dent able by the end of the session to convert English sentences of moderate difficulty into Greek, and to translate passages from Xen- ophon with facility. In the second term of the second year the study of practical rhet- oric is begun. The student is, at this point, drilled in the correc- tion of exercises in false syntax, and is taught to distinguish the principal figures of speech. Compositions are required every two weeks throughout the session. The course in English is designed not only to teach the student to write and speak with grammatical correctness, but also to inspire in him a love of good literature. The reading and study of classics like Scott's Lady of the Lake and 'Ben Franklin's -Autobiography can hardly fail of being beneficial in effect. Those who do not take a regular college course will be expected to pursue all the studies laid down with the exception of Latin and Greek. Physical Geography and Civil Government are not required of those taking Greek. In the Avork of the Department, thorough- ness at all times insisted upon. In the second year a short course in Science is offered: so that the work of the Department now covers all that is required for a first grade teacher's certificate in the public schools of our State. Students in this department who wish to prepare themselves for ordinary business life, may have their studies directed to this end. The work so arranged will embrace the Preparatory English Course with the addition of Book-keeping. Special attention will be given also, to PennmanshiiD, Practical Composition and Commercial Arithmetic. Those who purpose taking this course should correspond with the President or with the Headmaster of the Department. COURSE OF STUDV. FIRST YEAR.

Millsaps College is named in honor of Major R. W. Millsaps. whose munificent gifts have made the existence of the institution possible. The College is the property of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and was organized by the concurrent action of the Mississiijpi and North Mississippi Conferences. It is not sectarian, however, but numbers among its patrons members of all the Chris- tian denominations. The College has an endowment of $100,000. and several partially- endowed scholarships. The buildings and grounds are worth $70,- 000 or more. The first scholastic session began September the 29th, 1892. and the College has had remarkable prosperity from the beginning. The generous founder, Major Millsaps, has put the College under renewed obligation by the gift of the Webster Science Hall, at a cost of $10,000. . LOCATION. Jackson, the Capital of the State and the seat of the College, is easily accessible by four lines of railway. Twelve passenger trains ari'ive and depart daily. The College is located just north of the city, on a commanding elevation, with perfect drainage, and and in a beautiful campus of seventy-five or more acres. A healthier spot it would be difficult to find within the limits of the State. Jackson is a small city of 9.000, with handsome churches and public buildings, and is noted for the refinement, and intelligence of its people. Its literary, social and religious advantages are superior. Bishop Gallowaj'. President of the Board of Trustees, resides here, and will deliver a course of several lectures and special sermons during the coming session. LIBRARY. The Library has commodious quarters for a stack-room and a reading-room in Webster Science Hall. It is a matter of great gratification that we open the College with such a large and valu- able collection of books. Most of the well-selected libraries of the late Dr. C. K. Marshall and Rev. W. G, Millsaps, besides many ex- 50 MILLSAPS COLLEGE. collent volumeH fx-om ex-Chancellor Edward Mayes, Rev. A. F. Watkins and others, have been generously contributed. In addi- tion to his other munificent gifts, Major R. W. Millsaps has con- tributed $500 to be expended in purchasing books for the Library. MARTHA A. TURNER LIBRARY FUND. Mrs. J. R. Bingham, of Carrollton, Miss., has given $700 to, form a fund to be known as the Martha A. Turner Library Fund. This fund is invested and the annual interest used in purchasing books for the Library. LITERARY SOCIETIES. Two large halls have been provided for the Literary Societies organized for the purpose of improvement in debate, declamation! composition and acquaintance with the methods of deliberative bodies. These societies are conducted by the students, under con- stitutions and by-laws of their own framing. They ars named respectively the Galloway and Lamar Societies, and contribute greatly to the improvement of their members. STUDENTS* HOMES. We do not adopt the old dormitory system, and in lieu tjiereof have established "Students' Homes," capable of accommodating a limited number of boarders, and each placed in charge of a Chris- tian family. Two of these homes, Asbury Home and Williams Home, each with a capacity of from twenty-four to thirty young men, are now ready for occupancy. In addition we have severa^ small cottages, in which students can board themselves at reduced cost, or, if they prefer, lodge there and take their meals at one of the "Homes." No student will be permitted to room at the cottages without special permission from the President. MEMORIAL COTTAGES. The friends of the late John A. Ellis, of the Mississippi Confer- ence, and the Rev. J. H. Brooks, of the North Mississippi Confer- ence, have built two cottages for the accommodation of students. These homes are named respectively the John A. Ellis Cottage and the J. H. Brooks Cottage. SCHOLARSHIPS. Several scholarships have been established, the income from which will be used in aiding deserving young men in securing a collegiate education. The W. H. Tribbett Scholarship, the W. H. Watkins Scholarship, the Jefferson Davis Scholarship [estab- MILLSAPS COLLEGE. 51 lished by Mrs. Annie Davis Gunning], and the Peebles Scholarship [established by Mrs. N. P. McPherson]. COLLEGE MAILS. All correspondence intended for students at the College should be addressed care Millsaps College. Mails are distributed to students on the campus, thereby avoiding the necessity of personal visits to the city postoffice. ELECTION OF CLASSES AND COURSES- Students are allowed some liberty of choice of classes and courses, either by themselves or their friends, limited to the judgment of the Faculty and by the exigence of classification. A student is not allowed to withdraw from any class to which he has been assigned without permission of the President and the Professor in his de. partment. EXAMINATIONS. Written examinations will be held twice a year, and special ex- aminations at other times as the several profesors may elect. REPORTS. During the session reports will be sent to the parent or guardian of each student, in which will be an estimate of his class standing and deportment. DISCIPLINE. It will be the constant care of the administration to guard the moral conduct of students. The discipline will be firm. Obedience to college regulations will be strictly required. Young men unwill- ing to submit to reasonable, wholesome government are not desired, and will not be retained CERTIFICATE OF GOOD CHARACTER. Candidates for admission are required to give satisfactory evi- dence of good moral character, and if the candidate comes from another college he must show that he was honorably discharged. PRIZES. Prizes are annually awarded for excellence in : 1. Oratory. The J. B. Ligon Medal and the Oscar Kearney An- drews Medal. 2. Reading the Sacred Scriptures. The Gunning Medal. 3. Declamation. The Millsaps Medal. 52 MILLSAPS COLLEGE. CANDIDATES FOR ADMISSION. Applicants for admission must report to the President as soon as possible after their arrival, and secure board at some place ap- proved by the College authorities. Except in cases where special permission is granted students to board in the cottages or in town, they will be required to board in one of the Students' Homes or in private families near the College. New students should be present on Monday and Tuesday, that they may be examined and classed be. fore the opening day, Wednesday, September, 14. ENTRANCE EXAMINATIONS. Examinations tor those applying for admission into Millsaps Col- lege will be held September 13-14. See calendar on page 2. See detailed statement as to entrance requirements, page 19. ATHLETICS. It has been the unvarying policy -of the College to discourage inter-collegiate contests. It is believed that there is in the college community sufficient incentive to active interest in athletics. With the help of friends, the students have erected and equipped what is said to be the best gymnasium in the State. A trained instructor has 'Charge of daily classes in gymnastic exercises. The annual spring Field Day gives opportunity for public contests in running, jumping, putting the shot, etc. There is a student organization^ The Millsaps College Athletic Association, which helps to keep up enthusiastic interest in healthful sports. A member of the faculty is president of this association. RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION. Students will be required to be present at morning worship in the College Chapel. In this daily service the faculty and pupils come together to hear the reading of the Sacred Scriptures and to engage in singing and prayer. The Young Men's Christian Association holds weekly meetings, and prayer meetings are regularly conducted by the pupils. These agencies keep up a healthy spiritual interest and at the same time train the young men in active Christian work. All students are re- quired to attend church at least once every Sunday and are expected to be present at the Sunday School. PUBLIC LECTURES. Willi tile view of ])r()motiiig general culture among the pupils and 1(1 fiirnisli IIkmu i)le;isant and iirofitabli' entertainment, occa- MILLSAPS COLLEGE. 53 sional lectures are delivered in the College Chapel by distinguished speakers. EXPENSES— LITERARY DEPARTMENT. Tuition for full scholastic year $ 30 00 Incidental fee 5 00 Library fee 1 00 The session is divided into two terms and payments must be made as follows : FIRST TERM. Tuition (payable in advance) $ 15 00 Incidental fee (payable in advance) 5 00 Library fee " " 100 $ 21 00 SECOND TERM. Tuition (payable in advance) $ 15 00 Students who do not enter until the second term will be required to pay the Incidental and Library fees. Students preparing for the work of the ministry in any Christian denomination, and the sons of preachers will have no tuition to pay, but all students will be required to pay the Incidental and Library fees. Board in "Students "Homes" and good families can be had at $12 per month, including lodging and lights. Each student is expected to furnish his own pillow, bed clothes and toilet articles. If students prefer to room in one of the cottages and take their meals elsewhere, table board will not cost them more than $10 per month. Ample facilities are provided for board at the above rates. Any student may feel assured that board will not eost him more than $120 for the entii'e session. We are not unmindful, however, of the fact that there are hun dreds of worthy young men, i-ich in mental and moral gifts, and capabilities, who are compelled to reduce the cost of living to the minimum in order to enjoy the advantages of educational institu- tions. Millsaps College will always be in hearty sympathy with this class of young men, and the authorities will encourage them in every possible way. Many of our students by boarding themselves reduce the cost of 54 MILLSAPS COLLEGE. living below S7 per month. Our facilities for accommodating thig class of students have been enlarged. In addition to the Tuition and Incidental Fees students in Chemis- try will be charged a Laboratory fee of $5: students in Physics, $3: stu- dents on graduation will be required to pay a diploma fee of $5. Tuition in the Law Department $50. ^' X >j >i ^ :^..H 'X „•_•_: 1 >.^" >- ■^ =::5 S f ^ j2 ■4^ ^ C it X ^ 1 1- s "^ X J' 'v' £ ; : X J^— ^. ^. -^ JS /" •i ■ '^ "^ '-^ ■"" . ^ '" r^^ z^ -— • ^ ^-H . -~ s^ © r£; _ < ' r^ i-i^ '^- ! ^ • "^ *j_^ • "^ ^ . g . ^J r- X C c3 ^ ^ . • ^^ ] j^ ■ '^- ^ ' ! ; . ^ . 1 • S j ai -^ ^ .2 .2 \ ' ^ • ■ ^' : : zi '. s fcn E ■^ 'a A • ^' • ~. ^ • — • X • ^ cS oi P- a s s z ^ w 3 G ^ © &.C t-( - :: 0^ *■ G C ^ i^ 2 S 5 © " 3 C> C _^ Ec- a!*-:^! i-COCCr-: fe,h-:X r-:73 73 ^■^-.'Jl'Xl a^T;'-^ ^ "^.25 S ^ >iC >i C S '-'^ >.^73 X X X _l> _^ X X X XI > < 2 ^ '-S ?f •:s S.2 ^ S X hi^ .i. ^ • • +^ 5 'x 'x © © .S ?; 'x 'x ^ cc \ '% '. • ^ • -/' !
