The reader of the outline of courses will notice that three undergraduate degrees are offered by the Literary Department of the College— B. A., B. S., Ph. B. It will also be seen from the following schedule that the prepar- ation required for the different courses is not the same. B. A. Degree — The Bachelor of Arts course offers special instruction in the departments of Latin and Greek. This course presupposes one year of preparatory work in Greek, two in Latin. In order to be allowed to enter upon the B. A. course, the applicant must stand an approved examination in English, Latin, Greek, and Mathematics. B. S. Degree — The Bachelor of Science course offers 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 approved exam- ination in English and Mathematics. Ph. B. Degree — The Bachelor of Philosophy course offers special work in History, 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 approved examination in English, Mathematics, History and Geography. LL. B. Degree — No entrance examination is exacted of law students who apply for the Junior class. They are expected to have a good elementary English educa- tion. Applicants for the Senior class are examined in the Junior course. The Master's Degree. Each school of collegiate instruction offers work look- ing towards the Master's Degree. Applicants for the M. A., M. S., or Ph. M. degree will be required to elect three MILLSAPS COLLEGE 21 courses of study, not more than two of which may be in the same school or under the same professor. The prin- cipal subject chosen — known as the major course — will be expected to employ one-half 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 Col- lege engaged in graduate study. In most cases non-resi- dent study during two or more years will be accepted as the equivalent of one year's residen work. All examina- tions 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 depart- ment. 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. M. 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, Biology, Geology, Mathematics, and Astronomy. His second minor 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 Psychology, 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 desrree. Entrance Examinations. Tha authorities of Millsaps College prefer that appli- cants for admission into the College should submit them- selves to the regular test of an entrance examination. But in case the Principals of Preparatory schools desire to have their pupils admitted on trial without examination, 22 MILLSAPS COLLEGE arrangements looking- to that end may be made as a result of correspondence with the College authorities. Special attention is called to the following statement of requirements for admission into the several depart- ments: I. Latin and Greek — Applicants for admission into the Freshman Class are examined on the work of the Pre- paratory Department. 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 languages, a careful study of the forms and of the leading principles of the syntax. Applicants are expected also to have some facil- ity in translating simple Latin and Greek at sight and in writing 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 throughout the State. FIRST YEAR. Latin — The First Latin Book (Collar and Daniell); Gra- datim (Collar); Grammar (Allen and Greenough). SECOND YEAR. Latin — First Latin Readings (Arrowsmith and Whicher); Caesar, Gallic War (Kelsey, 8th edition); New Latin Composition (Daniell); History (Creighton's Primer). Greek — The First Greek Book (White); Anabasis (Good- win and White j;Grammar (Goodwin) ;History (Fyife'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 con- tinous passages for translation as soon as practicable, and for this purpose selections from Collar's Gradatim and something of the Anabasis may he 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 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 23 Greek, written 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 sufl&cient. Certainly as much history as is indicated above may be asked of the preparaaory schools, but it is hoped that they wiU 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. II. Mathematics — For admission to the Freshman Class in Mathematics, a thorough knowledge of Arithme- tic and Algebra through quadratic equations is required. The only suggestion here offered to teachers of these subjects is that there be joined to systematic and thor- ough teaching a judicious system of examinations. Such examinations help the student to acquire better methods of study, and tend to remove from the minds of the well- taught students unreasonable dread of examinations. The standards for entrance examinations are Went- worth's Grammar School Arithmetic, and Wentworth's Higher Algebra. The student making the highest grade in Freshman Mathematics for the session 1899-1900 was prepared for college in the Brandon High school. in. History and Geography — An approved examina- tion 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 are recommended as covering the ground of the examination. IV. 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 familiar with grammatical forms and must be acquainted with the elementary facts of practical rhetoric. He will be required to write a short composition — correct in spelling, punctu- ation and grammar — on a subject chosen from the books assigned to be read for that purpose. The following books are well suited for use in pre- paring students for admission into the Freshman Class: Grammar — Whitney and Lockwood's English Grammar or Longmans' School Grammar. Composition and Rhetoric: 24 MILLSAPS COLLEGE Genung's Outlines of Rhetoric, or Butler's School Eng-lish. It is desirable that the preparatory schools make use of the list of books for reading- and study looking- toward the uniform entrance requirements in English, adopted by the principal American colleges. This year we shall examine on any four books from the list. Hereafter we shall require preparation on all the books announced.

Throughout the School of Philosophy text-books and books of reference of the most approved character w^ill be used, and the method of instruction will be by lectures, by daily oral examinations, by analysis of subjects studied, and by original theses to be presented by the students on topics prescribed relating to the various departments 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 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 27 the study of Hamilton's Metaphysics, the History of Phil- osophy and the Evidences of Christianity. Text-Books: Hamilton's Lectures, History of Philos- ophy (Schwegler), The Grounds of Theistic and Christian Belief (Fisher). II. The School of Latin and Greek PROFESSOR SWEARINGEN. In the outline of the course leading- to the degree of Bachelor of Arts the text and editions used in this depart- ment are enumerated. 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 founda- tion for classical scholarship. The entire session is therefore devoted to the study of Cicero and Xenophon. The f ormsare carefully reviewed, the systematic study of the syn- tax is begun, and the importance of acquiring a vocabulary is at all times emphasized. Throughout the year daily practice in inflecting 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 prose com- position. The main object of the course outlined for the Sopho- more Class is to read the texts selected with some appreci- ation of their value as works of art. To this end the class is first put in possession of the literary and historical set- ting 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 on the authors read, and to use in translating, a pure English idiom. This ability to grasp the thought in the order of the original isthenecessary condition of an adequate appre- ciation of the classics as literature. Reading at sight, there- fore, forms a not unimportant part of the work of the class room, while portions of the texts are, from time to time, 28 MILLSAPS COLLEGE required to be turned, in writing-, into the best English which the class can command. The Junior Class is assumed to have reached a some- what advanced stage in the study of the classics. Matters of g-rammatical 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, presumably, at least, have attained such facility in translating' that the readings may be rapid and extensive and the interpretation intelli- gent and appreciative. Incidentally a study, in outline, will be made of the Homeric Question, of the Iliad and JEmeid as types of the epic, and of the history in general of this form of poetry. The Satires of Horace are made the basis of a running- commentary on the customs and institutions of the time. His epistles challenge a critical and historical examination of his views on literature, and invite a consideration of his philosophic reflections as the expression of the maturer thoughts and higher aspirations of an enlightened pagan. In the study of the Attic tragedy and comedy the his- tory 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 neces- sary to a clear conception of a Greek play on the stage, and so to an intelligent estimate of its dramatic as well as of its literary worth. Courses Leading to the Masier''s Degree. Two courses are offered 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 exclusively with the subject of Epigraphy. In both courses a mini- mum of histor}'- and philology is required. The scope of each course is indicated by the schedule which follows 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). MILLSAPS COLLEGE 29 Grammaire Comparee du Grec et du Latin (Henry), fifth edition, or the translation of the second edition. History of Greece (Abbott). History of Rome (Shuckburgh). II. In the Course in Literature : A. Latin. Roman Satire (Lucilius, Horace, Persiiis 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. 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'Epigraphie Latine (Cagnat). Historical Latin Inscriptions (Rushforth). Exempla Inscriptionum Latinarum (Wilmanns). B. Greek. An Introduction to Greek Epigraphy (Robertson). Grammatik der Attischen Inschriften (Meister- hans). Greek Historical Inscriptions (Hicks). The Dialects of Greece (Smyth). Delectus Inscriptionum Graecarum (Cauer). Of the works here enumerated several are required 30 MILLSAPS COLLEGE only in part. The candidate is expected, for example, to have a general acquaintance with Doerpfeld's new theory of the Greek theater 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 consulted from time to time for further illustration of matters inadequately presented in the introductions of Eg-bert 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 subject. IIL The School of Chemistfy and Physics PROFESSOR MUCKENFUSS. The rooms given up to the study of these subjects are modern both m size and convenience, and occupy the whole low^er floor of Webster Science Hall. The recita- tion room and physical laboratory open 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 chemical laboratory, by which arrangement a large auditorium forty by sixty feet is obtainable for public scientific entertainments. The chemical laboratory 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 storeroom, over which an assistant presides during laboratory hours. Gas, water, experiment tables, hoods and pneumatic troughs are to be found in convenient places. The course in this department consists of three years of chemistry and three years of physics. Candidates for the B. A. degree take one year of each; those for the Ph. B. degree, two years of physics and one of chemistry; while B. S. students study the whole course. The policy of employing an assistant for the chemical and one for the physical laboratory enables the department to give full efficiency to its equipment. MILLSAPS COLLEGE 31 Chemistry — This subject is taugfht by recitations and y work which each student must perform in the labora- tory. Recitations are not illustrated by experiments, which distract the student's attention, but are devoted entirely to the theoretical aspects of the subject. It is aimed that the labratory be kept well equipped with apparatus 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 inspection, but also cultivate a hand careful to the smallest detail, an eye observant of the slightest phenomenon, and habits of neatness, skill and economy. The Sophomore course consists per week of twohours' recitation, and one afternoon in the laboratory experiment- ing with substances considered in the recitation. Library copies of Watt's Revised Dictionary, Thorpe's Applied Chemistry, and Roscoe and Schorlemmer's Treatise are on hand for reference. In the latter part of the year's laboratory work, special attention is paid to inorganic preparations. Each student will make by approved indus- trial methods many typical salts and preserve them as specimens. The Junior course occupies three hours a week in the recitation room, and one afternoon a week in the laboratory. Organic chemistry, especially in its relations to medicine and physiology, is fully studied with head and hand. Qualitative analysis receives full attention. Physical chemistry is a special feature of the course, while the applications to technology and agriculture are not neg- lected. 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 laboratory text- books will be dispensed with as far as possible. The student is referred frequently to the Fresenius systems and to the works elsewhere mentioned, but he will be taught to feel that the substances and apparatus around him are his alphabet. The teacher is constantly on hand to guide and encourage, and endeavors to inspire a love for things — a neglected department of education. 33 MILLSAPS COLLEGE Physics — The Freshman Physics class recites twice a week from an elementary text. Illustrative experiments are shown as frequently as seems desirable. The object of the course is to familiarize the mind of the beginner with the phenomena and laws of nature, so as to enable it later on to grapple successfully with the intellectual task of explaining and correlating these. The Junior Year, required of all students before gradua- tion, consists of two hours recitation and one afternoon in the laboratory every week. This laboratory will soon be equipped for effective work. All experiments are care- fully performed by the students themselves, who are encouraged to develop independence of thought. The mental side of laboratory work is stressed fully as much as the manual. The Senior Course is largely a study of special topics in physics. The texts will be varied from year to year. It is designed that this class especially shall keep in touch with the scientific progress of the day. Courses Leading to the Master'' s Degree. In the post-graduate work of this department, 100 hours of laboratory work in the subject chosen are required. In addition, a satisfactory examination must be passed upon one of the following reading courses: Chemistry — Remsen's Theoretical Chemistry, Freer's General Chemistry, Speyer's Physical Chemistry, Thorp's Industrial Chemistry. Physics — Hastings and Beach's General Physics, Thompson's Electricity and Magnetism, Cajori's History of Physics, Glazebrook's Heat and Light. IV, The School of Biology and Geology R. B. RICKETTS, FELLOW. The two front rooms on the lower floor of Webster Science Hall are occupied by this department of instruc- tion, the one for a museum, the other for a class room. The Museum contains about 300 minerals collected from various parts of the world, 200 specimens of rocks pre- sented by the United States Geological Survey, and a col- MILLSAPS COLLEGE 33 lection of Mississippi rocks and fossils. The excellence of the latter is yearly increased by donations from friends of the colleg"e. All Seniors are required to study biology and geology. Each class recites twice a week. In the case of the former science, it is aimed to enhance the interest of the subject by microscopic work of a general character. Several geological expeditions, regularly made in the fall and spring to localities easily accessible from Jackson, give the class a practical conception of this kind of sur- veying. The college is fortunate in being located in the midst of a region that is quite varied in geological char- acter. Courses Leading to the Master'' s Degree. Graduate w^ork is offered in both biology and geology, but for the present no laboratory or field work will be required. An examination must be passed upon a course of reading, which for each subject is as follows: Biology — William's Geological Biology, Wilson's Cell in Development and Inheritance, Haddon's Study of Man, Jordan's Bacteriology. Geology — Tarr's Economic Geology of the United States, William's Elements of Crystallography, Rosen- busch's Microscopical Physiography of Minerals and Rocks, Le Conte's Elements of Geology. V, The School of Mathematics and Astronomy professor MOORE. The general aim is to have the work of the depart- ment brought within such limits, and made so systematic and thorough as to secure to tne students a full 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 discipline and development, can the best results be obtained. While in all the classes, the text book will furnish the basis for instruction, still the explanations and demonstra- tions of the Professor on leading and crucial points of the science must be regarded as an essential part of the course. 34 MILLSAPS COLLEGE The Freshman Class studies Algebra and Geometry. In Alg-ebra the aim will be to secure to the student, besides skill and accuracy in the performance of algebraic opera- tions, an increased power of abstract analysis and reas- oning. The subjects embraced in this course are: Quadratic equations, simultaneous quadratics, properties of quad- ratics, ratio, proportion, variation, progressions, inde- terminate coefficients, binominal theorem, logarithms, choice, probability, variables and limits, and series. Wentworth's Higher Algebra, chapters 19-26, 28, 29,33,34. In Geometry the student will be aided in forming cor- rect geometrical conceptions and in gaining an insight into the true spirit and methods of geometrical reasoning. The value of this subject in promoting, when properly studied and taught, definiteness. of conception, precision and directness of statement, and correctness of deduction is well known. Weekly original exercises will be required. In the Sophomore Year, Plane and Spherical Trigo- nometry and Surveying are studied and completed, and Analytic Geometry is begun. Trigonometry receives the attention which its importance demands. The class studies trigonometric functions of acute angles, the right triangles, goniometry, the oblique triangle, from 40 to 60 miscellaneous problems in Plane Trigonometry, the right spherical triangle, the oblique spherical triangle. Wentworth's New Trigonometry, chapters 1-5, 7, 8. The course in surveying embraces recitations, field work with chain, tape, compass, and transit, and private work. Plane Analytic Geometry through the parabola (Nichol's Analytic Geometry, chapters 1-6) is embraced in the work of the Sophomore Year. The Junior Class completes Analytic Geometry and studies The Differential and Integral Calculus, and the Elements of Mechanics. The elegant methods of mathe- matical investigation claiming the student's attention dur- ing this year are shown to combine logical rigor with great efficiency, brevity and comprehensiveness. The aim is to secure to the student a good degree of appreciation of these methods and of skill in their use. The Junior B. A. Class studies, during the first term MILLSAPS COLLEGE 35 the ellipse, the hyperbola, plane loci of the second order, hig"her curves, the elements of Solid Analytic Geometry, and surfaces of the second order. Nichols Part I., chapters 7, 8, 9 and 10. and Part II., entire. During- the second term this class studies the Ele- ments of Mechanics. Text-book, Wng-ht's Elements of Mechanics. The Junior B. S. Class studies, in addition to the above course, first term, The Differential Calculus (New- comb.) Second term, Integral Calculus (Newcomb). The Senior Class studies General Astronomy through the entire year. It is meant to supply that amount of in- formation upon the subject which may be fairly expected of every "liberally educated" person. The course will g-ive a clear and accurate presentation of leading astro- nomical 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, in which an acquaintance with the Calculus will be presumed, and during the second term, Determin- ants and the Theory of Equations. 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 pursue successfully more advanced studies in the modern mathematics. Courses Leading to the Master's Degree, Selected topics from the following lines of work are the courses offered in this department to applicants for the Master's Degree: I. — For the M. A. and Ph. M. Degrees: — 1. Accoustics and Optics (Bartlett); 2. Spherical and Practical Astronomy (Chauvenet, Vol. I.); 3. Theory of In- struments (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 Astronomy. 36 MILLSAPS COLLEGE VL The School of History and Ecofiomics PROFESSOR HANNER. The advantages to be derived from the study of his- tory are two-fold: Those which make for mental discip- line and those which contribute 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 power of accomplishment. Those powers of the mind which the study of history especially develops are memory, judgment, and the power of expres- sion. Dates, those bugbears of many students, while they lose most of their terrors when a relation of cause and effect has been established between the events for which they stand, serve to inculcate that accuracy and definite- ness of recollection so much to be desired. The problems of history are the problems of every day life, and as such they cannot be solved by any set rules or formulae, but the 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, in the practice of narration and in the supplying of topics for both brief and long composition work. In law and journalism the information that it implies is indispensable, and for every citizen it is needed for the comprehension of literature, for the understanding of political institutions and for the basis of a well founded, intelligent love of country. The course offered extends through four years; the first year is devoted to the study of Ancient Histor}^; the second year to Mediaeval and Modern History; the third year to England and the United States; the fourth year to the constitutional history of the United States and to the systems of government of the European nations. The first term 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 Cur- tius, which are to be found in the College Library. Roman History will be studied during the second term. Gibbon, Capes, Merivals, Beesley, Smith, and Mommsen will afford parallel reading. MILLSAPS COLLEGE 37 The second year will be devoted to the study of Mediaeval and Modern (European) History. TheHistory of England will be studied during the first term of the Junior year. Macaulay, Hume, Greek, Lecky, Gardiner, Stubbs, and Morris will be used as parallel read- ing. Thesecond termof the Juniorandthefirsttermof the Senior year are given to the study of our own country and people. The Junior class will study the period between 1765 and 1865; and the Senior 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 Junior and dur- ingthe Senior yearwdllbe supplemented with readingsfrom Schouler, Bancroft, McMaster, Adams, Fisher, Hart. Course Leading to the Mastej-'s Degree. A course in history, whose aim is to develop the power of investigation and criticism, is offered. The student will be required to prepare original papers on topics rela- ting to American History. These papers will be read and discussed at such times as the Professor in charge may designate. In addition to these essays, oral reports on assigned portions of such writers as Schouler, Curtis, Bancroft, Bryce, Lecky, Hildreth will be heard and discussed at regular meetings. VIL The School of Modern Languages French afid Ger7nan. PROFESSOR HANNER. A course extending through one and two years is offered in German and French respectively. The aim of the course is to give the student a thorough mastery of the fundamental principles of the two languages, a correct pronunciation of French and of German, and a fair acquaintance 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 Eng- lish sentences and idioms into the corresponding French and to daily practice in pronunciation. German is taken up in the Sophomore year. 38 ' MILLSAPS COLLEGE During the second term of the Freshman year the class will read easy prose, especial attention being given to form work, to an idiomatic translation, and to the appli- cation of the rules learned during the first term. The exercises in pronunciation, and the translation of English into French, 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 subordinated, and the languages are studied from a literary standpoint. During the first term of this year the class in French will study such representative prose writers as Victor Hugo, Balzac, Daudet, Merimee and Halevy. During the second term the class in French will make a critical study of some of the masterpieces of the dra- matic artists of the seventeenth century. Throughout the session weekly exercises in translat- ing English into French and German are required. Class-room work is supplemented 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 (Braune); Gotische Etymologic (Feist): Mittelhochdeutsche Grammatik (Paul); Armer Heinrich (Robertson); Nibelungenlied (Piper); History of German Literature (Scherer). n. A course in Old French. The Chanson de Roland will be studied from a literary and a comparative stand- point. The relation between modern and old French will be traced. Brachet's Historical Grammar and G. Paris's La Litterature Francaise au Moyen Age will also be studied. VIII. The School of English PROFESSOR BISHOP. The work of the Freshman year will be pursued with three aims in view. The student will study rhet- oric, reciting twice a week, and in connection with a study fei' MILLSAPS COLLEGE 39 of principles as presented in a text-book, he will be given a constant and systematic practice in practical rhetoric by means of exercises and compositions. Pancoast's Intro- duction to Eng-lish Literature will be studied, with recitations twice a week, with the purpose of giving' the student a comprehensive and proportionate outline-view of the history of English literature. Selections from Eng- lish poetry will be studied in class four times a week, with the purpose mainly of developing literary appreciation in the student; so these poems will be studied in their abso- lute literary character rather than with reference to the authors, or to their relation to literature in general. Par- allel reading will be assigned. In the fall term of the Sophomore year the time will be given to the study of American Literature. In addition to studying the development of the literature, the class will study masterpieces in recitation. Parallel work will be assigned. In the spring term the class will study selections from Tennyson and from Browning in recita- tion and as parallel work. In the fall term of the Junior year Anglo-Saxon will be studied with the primary purpose of giving the student an introductory study of the history of the English lan- guage. In the spring term Shakspere will be studied in class and as parallel. The work of the Senior year will be devoted to a study of the Romantic Movement in English poetry in the eighteenth century. Beginning with the dawn of this movement in the poetry of Goldsmith, Gray, and Collins, the reaction from classicism will be followed until the positive features of romanticism culminate in the poetry of Burns, Wordsworth, and Keats. In the special Ph. B. course the work of the fall term will be a study of the development of the character novel. In the spring term recent Southern writers will be studied. Courses Leading to the Master^s Degree, Students who apply for graduate work in English may elect for a philological course a study of Old English poetry, taking some assigned subject in philological for special investigation. They may elect as courses in liter- ature a study of the development of the English novel, a study of recent literary movements in the South, or a study of some aspect of Victorian literature. 40 MILLSAPS COLLEGE — THE — DEPARTMEiNT OF PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION THE LAW SCHOOL THE FACULTY Rev. William Belton Murrah, D. D., LL. D., President. Edward Mayes, LL. D., Dean. Assisted by 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 Professional Education, embody- ing a Law and a Theological School. In the year 1896 the time came when, in the judgment of the Trustees, it was possible and proper to establish the Law Department. 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 fourteen years of experi- ence as a law professor in the State University, and with a reputation for ability and skill as an instructor which 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 instruction offered. These gentlemen were, besides others whose aid was afterwards obtained. Judge J. A. P. Campbell, Ex-Chief Justice of the Supreme Court; Hon. Frank John- ston, Ex-Attorney-General; Hon. S. S. Calhoon, Ex-Circuit Judge, and President of the Constitutional Convention; Hon. Thos. A. McWillie, State Reporter. The total attendance during the first year was twenty- eight, of whom fifteen were classed as Seniors. At the MILLSAPS COLLEGE 41 expiration of ttie college year, fifteen students presented themselves to the Hon. H. C. Conn, Chancellor, presiding- over the Chancery Court, for examination 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 Chan- cellor to the Supreme Judges. Every applicant passed this ordeal successfully and received his license. Not one failed. The names of those fifteen young lawyers were given on page 3 of the catalogue for 1897-98. V/e 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 of&cial character, and the examination answers being graded and valued exclu- sively 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 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 Millsaps 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 approval as part of their regular course. The location of the school at Jackson enables the man- agers to offer 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 inval- uable series of object lessons and an unfailing fountain of iustruction to the students. Here also are located courts of all kinds known in the State, embracing not only the ordinary Municipal and the Circuit and Chancery Courts, but also the United States Court and the Supreme Court. Thus the observant student may follow the his- tory and course of cases in actual litigation, from the lowest tribunal to the highest; and observe in their prac- tical operation, the nice distinction between the State and Federal jurisdiction and practice. Here also is located the extensive and valuable State Law Library, unequaled in the State, the privileges of which each student may 42 MILLSAPS COLLEGE enjoy without cost. Here, too, where the Legislature convenes every second year, the student has an opportun- ity, without absenting himself from his school, to witness the deliberations 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 meth- ods and practice of legislation. Applicants for admision to the Junior class must be at least nineteen 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 re- quired. Students may enter the Senior class upon satis- factory examination on the matter of the Junior 'course or its equivalent. No student will 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 instruc- tion. No rebate from this fee w^ill 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 wxeks, five exercises per week. The instruction will consist mainly of daily oral exam- ination 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 w^ay. The professor will accompany the examination by running comments upon the text, illustrating and explaining it, and showing how the law as therein stood has been modi- fied 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 practice law, by examination before the Chancery Court, and will therefore embrace all the titles prescribed by law for that examina- tion, vig: (1) The Law of Real propert}'; (2) The LaAv of Personal Property; (3) The Law of Pleading and Evi- MILLSAPS COLLEGE 43 dence; (4) The Commercial Law; (5) The Criminal Law; (6) Chancery and Chancery Pleadings; (7) The Statute Law of the State; (8) The Constitution of the State and the United 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 assur- ance of success; Secondly, to equip them for actual practice by a higher range of legal scholarship than what is merely needed for a successful 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 em- brace each of the eight subjects on which the applicant for license is required by 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 us, if he will apply himself with rea- sonable fidelity, can go before the Chancellor at the expi- ration 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 examination for license before the Chancel- lor, or he may stand his examination before the law pro- fessor 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 fur- ther examination, 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 prefer 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 44 MILLSAPS COLLEGE much leg-al 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 TBRM Blackstone's Commmentaries. Stephen on Pleading. 1st vol. Greenleaf on Evidence. Smith on Personal Property. Mississippi Code, 1892. Mississippi Constitution. SECOND TERI^I Clarke's Criminal Law. Clarke's Criminal Procedure. Kent's Commentaries (Commercial Chapters) . Barton's Suit in Equity. Mississippi Code, 1892. Mississippi Con.?titution. Constitution of United States. Cooley's Principles of Constitutional Law. The Senior Year Real Estate Reviewed (Kent). International Law (Kent). Federal Judicial System (Kent). Curtis' United States Court. Cooley's Constitutional Limitations. United States Constitution, histori- cally. Lawson on Contracts. Bigelow on Torts. Boone on Corporations. Bispham's Equity. Mississippi Code, 1892. Mississippi Constitution. Mississippi Jurisprudence, his- torically.

MILLSAPS COLLEGE 45 GENERAL INFORMATION Millsaps College is named in honor of Major R. ^V. 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 organ- ized by the concurrent action of the Mississippi 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 5100,000, and sev- eral partially endowed scholarships. The buildings and the grounds are worth 370,000 or more. The first scholas- tic session began September 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 310,000. Location Jackson, the Capital of the State, and the seat of the College, is easily accessible by four lines of railway. Twelve passenger trains arrive and depart dail3\ The College is located just north of the city, on a commanding elevation, with perfect drainage, and in a beautiful campus of seventy-five or more acres. A healthier spot it would be difiicult to find within the limits of the State. The location secures all the advantages of the town and yet supplies all the healthful conditions and immunities of the country. Jackson is a small city of 12,000, with hand- some churches and public buildings, and is noted for the refinement and intelligence of its people. Its literary, social, and religious advantages are superior. Bishop Galloway, President of the Board of Trustees, resides here, and his lectures and special sermons delivered from time to time add greatly to the interest and profit of each session. Library The Library has commodious quarters for alcoves and a reading-room in Webster Science Hall. Il is a matter of great gratification that the College, so early in its history, has such a large and valuable collection of 46 MILLSAPS COLLEGE books. Most of the well-selected libraries of the late Dr. C. K. Marshall, and Rev. W. G. Millsaps, besides many excellent volumes from Ex-Chancellor Edward Mayes, Rev. A. F. Watkins and others, have been g^enerously contributed. In addition to his other munificent gifts, Major R. W. Millsaps has made many valuable contribu- tions to the Library. MARTHA A. TURNER LIBRARY. Mrs. J. R. Bingham, of Carrollton, Miss., has given $800.00 to endow tire Martha A.Turner Library of English and American Literature. The fund is invested and the annual interest used in purchasing books in this special field. 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 constitutions and by- laws of their own framing. They are 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 thereof, have established "Students' Homes," capable of accomodating a limited number of boarders, and each placed in charge of a Christian 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 several 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 per- mitted to room at the cottages without special permission from the President. MEMORIAL COTTAGES. The friends of the late John A. Ellis, of the Missis- sippi Conference, and the Rev. J. H. Brooks, of the North Mississippi Conference, have built two cottages for the MILLSAPS COLLEGE 47 accommodation of students. These homes are named respectively the John A. Ellis Cottage, and the J. H. Brooks Cottag-e. 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 Jeffer- son Davis Scholarship (established by Mrs. Annie Davis Gunning), and the Peebles Scholarship (established by Mrs. N. P. McPherson). College Mails All correspondence intended for students at the Col- lege 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 permis- sion of the President and the Professor in his department. Examinations Written examinations will be held twice a year, and special examinations at other times as the several profes- sors may elect. There is a tendency among students to withdraw just before or in the midst of the June examinations. This results in a loss to the student, for examinations are more than a test of knowledge. They are an educational instru- ment for teaching method, promptitude, self-reliance; for training in accuracy, and for developing in the student the power of concentration of attention and readiness in the shaping and arrangement of thought. Examinations will not be given in advance of the set time. No student who leaves College before the completion of his examinations will be admitted to the next higher class until he has submitted himself to the prescribed tests. 48 MILLSAPS COLLEGE Reports During- the session reports will be sent to the parent or guardian of each stude'nt, 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 unwilling to submit to reasonable, wholesome government are not desired, and w^ill not be retained. Certificates of Good Membership Candidates for admission are required to give satis- factory evidence 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 Andrews Medal. 2. Reading the Sacred Scriptures. The Gunning Medal. 3. Declamation. The Millsaps Medal. Candidates for Admission Applicants for admission must report to the Presi- dent as soon as possible after their arrival, and secure board at some place approved by the College authorities. Except in cases where special permission is granted students to board in the cottages or in town, they wiil 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 Tuesda}^, that they may be examined and classed before the opening day, Wednesday, October 3. Entrance Examinations Examinations for those applying for admission into Millsaps College will be held October 2-3. See calendar, on page 2. See detailed statement as to entrance require- ments, page 20. MILLSAPS COLLEGE 49 Athletics It has been the unvarying policy of the College to dis- courage 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 stu- dents have erected and equipped a commodious gymnasium. A trained instructor has charge of daily classes in gym- nastic 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 mem- ber 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 students come together to hear the reading of the Sacred Scripture and to engage in singing and prayer. The Young Men's Christian Association holds weekly meetings, and prayer meetings are regularly conducted by the students. These agencies keep up a healthy spiritual interest, and at the same time train the young men in active Christian work. The Y. M. C. A. occupies an attractive and commodious hall on the first floor of the main building. All students are required to attend church at least once every Sunday, and are expected to be present at the Sunday school. Public Lectures With the view of promoting general culture among the students, and to furnish them pleasant and profitable^ entertainment, occasional 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: 50 MILLSAPS COLLEGE FIRST TERM. Tuition (payable in advance) $ 15 00 Incidental fee (payable in advance) 5 00 Library fee (payable in advance) 1 00 $ 21 00 SECOND TERItl. Tuition (payable in advance) $ 15 00 Students w^ho do not enter until the second term will be required to pay the Incidental and Library fees. Students preparing- for the w^ork 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. Students are expected to furnish their own fuel, but if they prefer, it will be supplied at a cost of $5.00 for the session. 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 cost him more than $120 for the entire session. We are not unmindful, however, of the fact that there are hundreds of worthy young men, rich in mental and 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 institutions. Millsaps (Col- lege 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 living below $7 per month. Our facilities for accommodating this class of students have been enlarged. In addition to the Tuition and Incidental Fees students in Chemistry will be charged a Laboratory fee of $5; stu- dents in Physics, $3; students on graduation will be re- quired to pay a diploma fee of $5. Tuition in the Law Department, $50. MILLSAPS COLLEGE ALUMNI 55 Class of 1895 Bachelor of Arts. Francis Marion Austin, Attorney - - - Edna, Texas Bachelors of Scie?ice.
