The reader of the arrangement of courses will notice 
three undergraduate degrees are oliered by the Literary De- 
partment of the College — B. A., B. S., Ph. B. It will also be 
seen from the following schedule that the preparation required 
for the different courses is not the same. 

B. A. Degree — The Bachelor of Arts course offers special in- 
struction in the departments of Latin and Greek, with 
an option on a Modern Language. This course presup- 
poses 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 Eng- 
lish, Latin, Greek, and Mathematics. 

B. S. Degree — The Bachelor of Science course offers special 
work in Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics. Instead 
of Greek and partly of Latin, French and German are 
studied. In order to be allowed to enter upon the B. S. 
course, the aj)plicant must stand an approved examination 
in English, Mathematics, and Latin. 

Ph. B. Degree — The Bachelor of Philosophy course offers 
great freedom of election. In order to be allowed to enter 
upon the Ph. B. course, the applicant must stand an ap- 
proved examination in English and Mathematics. 

LL, B. Degree — 'No entrance examination is exacted of Law 
students who apply for the Junior Class. They are ex- 
pected to have a good elementary English education. Ap- 
plicants for the Senior class are examined in the Junior 

The Master's Degree 

Each school of collegiate instruction offers work looking 
towards the Master's Degree. Applicants for the M. A. or 
M. S. degree will be required to elect three courses of study, 
not more than two of which may be in the same school or under 


the same professor. The principal subject chosen — ^known as 
'the major course — will be expected to employ one-half the ap- 
plicant'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 examina- 
tions must be stood in Jackson. Attention is directed to the 
schedule of degrees following and to the statement in connec- 
tion with the account of work done in each department. The 
courses so announced are major courses ; a minor course is ex- 
pected 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 stu- 
dent must choose for his major course Latin, Greek, Phil- 
osophy, 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, or Astronomy. His second minor must be 
in a school in which he has already finished the full 
course for the bachelor's degree. 

Entrance Examinations 

The authorities of Millsaps College prefer that applicants 
for admission into the College should submit themselves to the 
regular test of an entrance examination. But in case the Prin- 
cipals of Preparatory schools desire to have their pupils ad- 
mitted on trial without examination, 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 
requirement? for admission into the several departments : 


I. Latin and Gkeek — Applicants for admission into the 
Freshman Class are examined on the work of the Preparatory 
Department. This, as may be seen, comprises, in Latin, the 
reading of four books of Csesar'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 facility 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. 


Latin — The First Latin Book (Collar and Daniell) ; Grada- 
tim (Collar) ; Grammar (Allen and Greenough). 


Latin — First Latin Readings (Arrowsmith and Whicher) ; 
Caesar, Gallic War (Kelsey, 8th edition) ; ISTew Latin. 
Composition (Daniell) ; History (Creighton's Primer). 

Greek — The First Greek Book (White) ; Anabasis (Good- 
win and A^Tiite) ; Grammar (Goodwin) ; History (Fyffe's 

To do satisfactorily the work here indicated, it will re- 
quire 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 continu- 
ous passages for translation as soon as practicable, and for this 
purpose selections 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 re- 
sults, that throughout the first year, in both Latin and Greek, 
wntten 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 miicli history as is indicated above may bo 
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 attentive, 
not to say romantic, treatment. 

II. Mathematics — For admission to the Freshman 
Class in Mathematics, a thorough knowledge of Arithmetic, 
of Algebra to quadratic equations, and of two Books of 
Geometry is required. The only suggestion here offered 
to teachers of these subjects is that there be joined to 
systematic and thorough teaching a judicious system of ex- 
aminations. Such examinations help to better methods of 
study, and tend to remove unreasonable dread of entrance ex- 
aminations. The student making the best average grade in 
Freshman Mathematics during the session of 1901-1902 was 
prepared for College in the Auburn High School. 

III. 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 Depart- 
ment. He is expected to be thoroughly familiar with gramati- 
cal forms and he must be acquainted with the elementary facts 
of practical rhetoric. He will be required to write a short com- 
position — correct in spelling, punctuation and grammar — on 
a subject chosen from the books assigned for reading. 

The following books are well suited for use in preparing 
students for admission into the Freshman Class : Grammar — 
Whitney and Lockwood's English Grammar or Basker-sdlle and 
Sewell's Grammar. Composition and Rhetoric — Genung's 
Outlines of Rhetoric, or Butler's School English. 

It is desirable that the preparatory schools make use of 
the list of books for reading and study looking toward the uni- 
form entrance requirements in English, adopted by the princi- 
pal American colleges. We shall expect preparation on the 
books given below. 


1902 — George Eliot's Silas Marner; Pope's Translation of the 
Iliad (Books I, VI, XXII, and XXIV) ; The Sir 


Roger de Coverley Papers in the Spectator; Groldsmitli's 
Vicar of Wakefield ; Scott's Ivanhoe ; Shakespeare's Mer- 
chant of Venice ; Cooper's Last of the Mohicans ; Tenny- 
son's Princess ; Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient Mariner. 

1903 and 1904 — Same requirements as in 1902. 


1902 — Shakespeare's Macbeth; Milton's L' Allegro, II Pense- 
roso, Comiis and Lycidas ; Burke's Speech on Conciliation 
with America ; Macaulay's Essays on Addison and Mil- 

1903 and 1901 — Same requirements as in 1902. 

All the books on these lists may be gotten in single copies, 
well edited, from Longmans, Green & Co., ISTew York, and 
Ginn & Co., Atlanta, 




The Several Departments of the College 


The departments comprising the Course of Instruction, 

I. The School of Philosophy and Biblical Instruction. 

11. The School of Latin and Greek. 

III. The School of Chemistry and Physics. 

IV. The School of Geology and Biology. 

V. The School of Mathematics and Astronomy. 

VI. The School of English. 

VII. The School of History. 

VIII. The School of Modern Languages. 

I. The School of Philosophy and Biblical 



Philosophy of the mental economy and the great subject 
of morals, as they affect the heart and influence the life, will 
be taught with great care and fidelity. 

This school embraces two depai'tments. 

I. Mental Philosophy, Logic and the History of Philosophy. 

II. Ethics, Political Economy, Christian Evidences. 

Throughout the 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 
examinations, by analysis of subjects studied, and by original 


theses to be presented by the students on topics prescribed re- 
lating 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 Mastei^s Degree. 

Applicants for the degree of M. A. or M. S. will be re- 
quired, in this department, to devote at least one year to the 
study of Hamilton's Metaphysics, the History of Philosophy 
and the Evidences of Christianity. 

Text-Books : Hamilton's Lectures, History of Philoso- 
phy (Schwegler), The Grounds of Theistic and Christian Be- 
lief (Eisher). 

II. The School of Latin and Greek 


In the outline of the course leading to the degree of Bach- 
elor of Arts the text and editions used in this department 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 

The work of the Ereshman 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 classi- 
cal scholarship. The entire session is therefore devoted to the 
study of Cicero and Xeuophon. The forms are carefully re- 
viewed, the systematic study of the syntax is begun, and the 
importance of acquiring a vocabulary is at all times empha- 
sized. Throughout the year daily practice in inflecting and 
construing is kept up, and the principles of sjTitax met with in 
the texts are practically applied to the writings of weekly exer- 
cises in prose composition. 


Tlie main object of the course outlined for the Sopho- 
more Class is to read the texts selected with some apprecia,- 
tion lof 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, supple- 
mented bj informal lectures. The attempt 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, 
therefore, forms a not unimportant part of the work of the 
class room, while portions of the texts are, from time to time, 
required to be turned, in writing, into the best English which 
the class can command. 

The Junior Class is assumed to have reached a somewhat 
advanced stage in the study 'of the classics. Matters of gram- 
matical 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 intelligent and appreciative. Incidentally a 
studj^, in outline, will be made of the Homeric Question, of the 
Iliad and Aeneid as types of the epic, and of the history in 
general of this fonn 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 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 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 contribution to supply the setting and 
technical information necessary to a clear conception of J 
Greek play on the stage, and so to an intelligent estimate of its 
dramatic as well as of its literary worth. 


Courses Leading to tJie Master'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 minimum of history and philology is 

The scope of each course is indicated by the schedule 
which follows of the texts to be read and of the works of refer- 
ence to be used in connection therewith : 

I. I:n" Either Course : Eemnants of Early Latin (Allen) ; 

Grammaire Comparee du Grec et du Latin (Henry, 
fifth edition, or the translation of the second edition) ; 
History of Greece (Bury) ; History of Rome (Shuck- 

II. Ijn" the Course of Literature: A. Latin: Roman 

Satire (Lucilius, Horace, Persius and Juvenal) ; The 
Roman Satura (Xettleship) ; Roman Literature 
(Cruttwell) ; Latin Poetry (Tyrrell). B. Greek: 
Aeschylus, the Oresteia ; Sophocles, the Oedipus Plays ; 
Euripides, the Aloestis, the Hippolytus, the Medea; 
Aristophanes, the Erogs; Das Griechische Theater 
Doerpfeld und Reisch) ; Greek Literature ( Jevons) ; 
Greek Poetry (Jebb). 

III. In the Course in Epigraphy: A. Latin: An Intro- 

duction to the study of Latin Inscriptions (Egbert) ; 
Cours d'Epigraphie Latine (Cagnat) ; Historical Latin 
Inscriptions (Rushforth) ; Exempla Inscriptionum 
Latinarum (Wilmanns). B. Greeh: An Introduction 
to Greek Epigraphy (Robertson) ; Grammatik der 
Attischen Inschriften (Meisterhans) ; Greek Historical 
Inscriptions (Hicks) ; The Dialects of Greece; 
(Smith) ; Delectus Inscriptionum Grsecarum (Cauer). 


Of the works here enumerated several are required 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, hut 
not necessarily to make a minute study of the book. The col- 
lections 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 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 subject. 

ni. The School of Chemistry and Physics 


The rooms given up to the study of 'these subjects are 
modern both in size and convenience, and occupy the whole 
lower floor of Webster Science Hall. The recitation 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 ciiemical 
laboratory opens conveniently into a small fuming room out- 
side 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, experi- 
ment tables, hoods and pneumatic troughs are to be found in 
convenient places. There is a cellar for gas and electric genera- 
tors, and for assay and other furnaces. 

The course in this department consists of three years of 
chemistry and two of physics. One year of each study is 
required of candidates for the A. B. degree, while B. S. 
students are required in addition to take a second year of 


chemistrj. Those in the Ph. B. course are required only to 
study one year of physics. The department employs an assist- 
ant in chemistry and one in physics. 

Chemistky — This subject is taught by recitations and 
by work which each student must perform in the laboratory. 
Recitations are not illustrated by experiments, which distract 
the student's attention, but are devoted entirely to the theo- 
retical aspects of the subject. It is aimed that the laboratory 
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 two hours' 
recitation, and one period in the laboratory experimenting with 
substances considered in the recitation. The work of this year 
is wholly introductory, being a necessary prerequisite to either 
of the Junior Courses, one of which should be entered if the 
student would have a satifactory appreciation of chemistry. 

The Junior (A) course occupies two hours a week in the 
recitation room and one period in the laboratory. Elementary 
organic chemistry is thoroughly studied. All facilities 
are provided for the preparation of typical organic compounds, 
which are placed, each commencement, on exhibition in the 
Museum, and for intelligent work in Qualitative Analysis. 
The third term's laboratory work is devoted to the latter 
subject, as an introduction to the Senior year. The third 
term's recitations are on Physiological Chemistry, History of 
Chemistry, or some subject that may easily follow Organic 
Chemistry. The whole course will appeal specially to prelim- 
inary medical students. 

The Junior (B) course is intended to be a continuation 
of the work of the Sophomore year. Qualitative Analysis is 
not confined entirely to unthinking test-tube exercise, but is 
the subject of regular quizzes. Each year some phase of 
advanced chemistry will be taught, theoretical, inorganic, or 


physical. 'The course extends through one hour of recitation 
and on-e period of laboratory work. It is designed for those 
who would know more of chemistry than is possible in the 
Sophomore year and would, at the same time, prepare them- 
selves for the Senior work. 

The Seniors spend one period weekly throughout the year 
upon the quantitative analysis of drinking water, fertilizers, 
soils and ores. A special room is fitted up for this course. 
Library copies of Watt's Revised Dictionary, Thorpe's Applied 
Chemistry, and Roscoe and Schorlemmer's Treatise are on 
hand for reference. This course is becoming better equipped 
each year. In both Junior and Senior courses some laboratory 
work will be required outside of the regular schedule. 

Finally, it should be said that in the chemical laboratory, 
text books will be dispensed with as far as possible. The 
student will be taught to feel that the substances and apparatus 
around him are his alphabet. The teacher is constantly on 
hand to question and suggest, and in other ways to stimulate 

Physics — The Junior Year, required of all students 
before graduation, consists of two hours' recitation and one 
afternoon in the laboratory every week. The physical labora- 
tory will soon be equipped for effective work. All experiments 
are carefully performed by the students themselves. The 
mental side of laboratory work is stressed fully as much as the 

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 progTess of the day. 

Courses Leading to the Master s Degree. 

In the post-graduate work of this department, 200 hours 
of laboratory work in the subject chosen are required. 

In Chemistry, courses are offered as follows: The 
Analysis of Potable and Mineral Waters ; texts, Mason's 
Examination of Water and Fresenins' Quantitative Analyses, 


Band. II. (b) A study by analysis of the various Mississippi 
Mineral Products, such as Iron Ores, Gypsum, Marl, Fire 
Clay and Limestone, or (c) lan advanced course in accurate 
Quantitative Analysis. The Senior laboratory is equipped for 
this work. 

In Physics, the courses oifered are measurements in (a) 
mechanics, (b) heat, or (c) electricity. The physical labora- 
tory is being equipped for work of this order ; text, Ames' and 
Blips' Manual of Experiments in Physics. 

In addition, a satisfactory examination must be passed 
one of the following reading courses : 

Chemistey — Ramsen's Theoretical Chemistry, Lach- 
man's Spirit of Organic Chemistry, Speyer's Physical Chem- 
istry, Thorp's Industrial Chemistry. 

Physics — Peddie's Physics, Thompson's Electricity and 
Magnetism, Cajori's History of Physics, Glazebrook's Heat 
and Light. 

The courses outlined are for major subjects, and for 
minors, each will be reduced one-half. 

IV. The School of Geology and Biology 


One of the front rooms on the lower floor of Webster 
Science Hall is occupied by this department. The Museum 
contains about 300 minerals collected from various parts of 
the world, 200 specimens of rocks presented by 'the United 
States Geological Survey, a fine cabinet of 300 minerals and 
rocks presented by the Woman's College of Baltimore, and a 
fine collection of Mississippi rocks and fossils, all thoroughly 
indexed. The excellence of the latter is yearly increased by 
donations from friends of the college. 

Seniors, except those applying for the Ph. B. degree, are 
required to study geology. Biology is elective. Each class 
recites twice a week. In the case of the latter 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 
land spring to localities easily accessible from Jackson, give the 
class a practical conception of this kind of surveying. The 
college is fortunate in being located in the midst of a region 
that is quite varied in geological character. Occasionally the 
Faculty grants a class a week's leave of absence on trips to more 
distant points. In the last month of the year, Hilgard's 
Geology of Mississippi is used as a text. 

Courses Leading to the Master's Degree. 

Graduate work, as a minor subject, is offered in both 
geology and biology, but for the present no regular field or 
laboratory work will be required. An examination must be 
passed upon a course of reading, which, for each subject, is as 
follows : 

Geology — Tarr's Economic Geology of the United 
States, William's Elements of Crystallography, LeConte's 
Elements of Geology, Hilgard's Geology of Mississippi. 

Biology — William's Biological Geology, Wilson's Cell in 
Development and Inheritance, Lladdon's Study of Man. 
Jordan's Bacteriology. 

V. The School of Mathematics and As=" 



The general aim is to have the work of the department 
brought within such limits, and made so systematic and 
thorough as to secure to the student 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 demonstrations 




of the Professor on leading and crucial points of the science 
must be regarded as an essential part of the course. 

Algebra and Geometry are the studies of the Freshman 
year. 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 reason- 

The value of Geometry in promoting, when properly 
studied and taught, definiteness of conception, precision and 
directness of statement, and correctness of deduction, is well 

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 
^"ill be required. 

The required studies of the Sophomore year are Trigo- 
nometry, both Plane and Spherical, and Plane Analytic 
Geometry of the straight line, the circle, the parabola, the 
ellipse, and the hyperbola. A course in plane surveying is 
offered as an elective. 

Junior Course (A) embraces the Differential and Inte- 
gral Calculus. The logical rigor of the Calculus, as well as the 
efficiency, brevity and comprehensiveness of its methods are 
carefully investigated. This course is required for the B. S. 

Junior Course (B) will embrace a fuller course in 
Analytic Geometry than could be given in the Sophomore 
year, and a brief course in Determinants and the Theory of 

Mechanics and Astronomy are taught in the Senior year. 
The course in Astronomy will be known as Course (A) and 
that in Mechanics as Course (B). 

Course (A). It is meant to supply that amount of infor- 
mation 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. 


Course (B). Parallel with the course in Astronomy, a 
course in Theoretical Mechanics is offered to those who are 
acquainted with the Calculus. 

The list of text-books, subject to change, is announced 

Courses Leading to the Master's Degree. 

Courses in Mathematics, Mechanics, or Astronomy, will 
be arranged for applicants for the Master's Degree. The 
preference of the applicant for particular lines of work will be 
duly considered in arranging these courses. The following 
major in Mathematics for the M. S. Degree has been given : 

(1) Differential Calculus (Williamson). 

(2) Integral Calculus (Williamson). 

(3) Differential Equations (Murray). 

(4) History and Philosophy of Mathematics. 

The following minor in Astronomy for the M. S. Degree 
has been given : 

(1) Godf ray's Astronomy. 

(2) Herschell's Outlines. Part II. 

(3) History of Astronomy. 

VI. The School of English 


The work of the Freshman year will be pursued with two 
purposes in view. It will be an aim, first, through composi- 
tions and exercises, through criticisms and lectures, through a 
study of the principles and forms of good composition, to give 
the student a writing command of English, to equip him for 
writing good prose with proper regard for unity, proportion, 
and coherence in paragraphs and in the whole composition. 
In the second place, selections from English poetry will be 
studied in class four times a week with the purpose mainly of 
developing literary appreciatiiin in the student; so, these 
poems will be studied in their absolute literary character rather 





than with reference to the authors, or to their relation to 
literature in general. Parallel reading will be assigned. 

In the fall term of the Sophomore year the time will he 
given to the studv 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 recitation and as parallel work. 

In the fall term of the Junior year, course (A), Anglo- 
Saxon will be studied with the primary purpose of giving the 
student an introductory study in the history of the English 
language. In the spring term Shakespeare will be studied in 
class and as parallel. 

In course (B) of the Junior year, the origin and growth 
of the English novel will be studied. Cross's "The Develop- 
ment of the English [N'ovel" will be used as a text, but more 
tizae and attention will be given to the reading, reviewing, and 
class-discussion of great, represent-ative English novels. In 
the sJDring term a study of recent and of current writers in 
American literature will be made with the purpose of giving 
the student a live interest in present literary forces and condi- 
tions. The work in this course v/ill be done mainly in the 
library, special attention being given to periodical literature. 

In the fall term of the Senior year the class will make a 
study of the Augustan age of English literature, giving special 
attention to Pope, Swift, and Addison. Supplementary to this 
course, the class will study the principles and art of prose com- 
position, using Wendell's "English Composition" as a text. 
The spring term will be given to the study of the prose writers 
of the Victorian age, with special reference to Ruskin, Arnold 
and ^N^ewman. 

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 philology for special investiga- 
tion; they may elect as courses in literature 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 

VII. The School of History 


In the outline of courses leading to degrees, the text-hooks 
used in the work in History are enumerated. The Colleg.e 
Library is well equipped with historical works and books of 
reference, and extensive reading therein, with reports on 
assigned topics, will be required of the student. 

The College authorities have recently added the Mac Coun 
historical charts to the equipment of the Department of 
History, and these will serve to illuminate the impressions of 
the changes from era to era, already gained by the student from 
his reading. 

Eor the present, the courses in History will be chiefly con- 
cerned with American historical topics. In the Junior year 
American political history will be studied, special attention 
being given to the periods between 1765 and 1889. In. the 
Senior year the institutions and Constitution of the United 
States will be taken up, an edition of Bryce's American Com- 
monwealth being used as text, with special studies in the vari- 
ous lines of development of our country. A short course in the 
elements of sociology was given to the class of the past year, 
and may possibly be repeated. In both these courses the 
student will be required to rely upon himself as much as pos- 
sible, and will be encouraged to develop his historical judgment 
and his ability to correlate facts and events. 

VIII. The School of Modern Languages 


A course extending through two years is offered in both 
French and German. The aim of the courses is to give the 
student a mastery of the fundamental principles of the 


languages, a correct prorLunciation, and an elementary ac- 
quaintance witli the literature. 

Tlie first year in each, language is devoted to the study of 
grammar, with constant drill in elementary composition and 
the translation of simple sentences into the language which is 
being studied. There will be daily practice in pronunciation. 
In the second term a reader will be taken up, and by copious 
reading the acquisition of a vocabulary and the application of 
principles already learned will be encouraged. A great deal 
of composition will be required during the second term. 

In the second year of the language, the student will con- 
tinue the study of gTammar; as much as is proper, however, 
the minor details of grammar will be subordinated, and the 
language studied from a literary standpoint. The reading 
will be chiefly from masterpieces of modern literature. Prac- 
tice in sight reading, and weekly exercises in composition, will 
be given. The class room work will be supplemented by par- 
allel reading, and reports on assigned topics in literature will 
be called for from time to time. 

If there is sufficient demand for advanced work, a Junior 
course will be arranged by the instructor. 




The Faculty 

William Beltoist Muerah^ D. D., LL, D., President of 
the College. 

Edwakd Mayes^ LL. D., Dean and Professor ; for four- 
teen and a half years Professor of Law in the State University. 

Albert H. Whitfeild^ LL. D., Professor ; Chief Justice 
of the Supreme Court ; for three and a half years Professor of 
Law in the State University. 

William R. Haeper^ Esq.^ Professor. 

The work of the school will be distributed between these 
instructors ;as follows : 

1. — Professor Mayes : the Law of Real Property ; Equity 
Jurisprudence ; Equity Pleading and Practice. 

2. — Professor Whitfield : the Law of Evidence ; Criminal 
Law; Criminal Proceedure; Law of Corporations; Constitu- 
tional Law; Federal Courts, Jurisdiction and Practice; Con- 
flict of Laws. 

3. — Professor Harper: the Law of Pleading and Prac- 
tice ; Personal Property ; Commercial Law ; Contracts ; Torts ; 
Statute Law. 

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, embodying 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 begin- 
ning of the next session, the doors of this institution should be 
opened for the students of law, and Professor Edward Mayes 
was engaged to take the active control and instruction of that 

Our law school was not, even then, in any sense an experi- 
ment. 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 experience 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. 
Thqs. A. Mc Willie, State Reporter. 

The total attendance during the first year was twenty- 
eight, of whom fifteen were classed as Seniors. At the expira- 
tion of the college year, fifteen students presented themselves 
to the Hon. H. C. Conn, Chancellor, presiding over the Chan- 
cery Court, for examination for license to practice law, in con- 
formity 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, for- 
warded by the Chancellor to the Supreme Judges. Every 
applicant passed this ordeal successfully and received his 
license. Not one failed. We are now closing the sixth annual 
session of our Law School. We point with pride to the results. 
We now have more than sixty graduates ; and in all the four 
years not one candidate presented to the Chancery Court for 
license has failed. 

The nature of the examination passed, being held by the 
Chancellor in his official character, and the examination 


answers being graded and valued exclusively hj the Judges of 
the Supreme Court, puts beyond question or cavil the genuine- 
ness of that result. We do not ask of our patrons, or those who 
may contemplate becoming our patrons, to accept any state- 
ment 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. ISTone other 
have such a double approval as part of their regiilar course. 

The location of the school at Jackson enables the managers 
to offer to the students extraordinary advantages, in addition 
to the institution itself. Here is located the strongest bar in 
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, embrac- 
ing 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 
history and course of cases in actual litigation, from the lowest 
tribunal to the highest ; and observe in their practical 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 enjoy without cost. Here, too, where 
the Legislature convenes every second year, the student has an 
opportunity^ without absenting himself from his school^ co 
witness the delil>erations 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 legislation. 

Applicants for admission 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 required. Students 


may enter the Senior class upon satisfactory examination on 
tlie matter of the Junior course or its equivalent. ITo student 
will be graduated on less than five months of actual attend- 
ance in the school. 

The curriculum of the Junior class will embrace 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 ito us, if he will apply 
himself with reasonable fidelity, can go before the Chancellor, 
even at the expiration of his Junior year, with a certainty of 

Each student will be required to present satisfactory cer- 
tificates of good moral character. 

Each student will be required to pay a tuition fee upon 
entrance, of fifty dollars, for the session's instruction. ISTo 
rebate from this fee will be made because a student may desire 
to attend for a period less than a full session. 


The full course of study will consist of two years, the 
Junior and Senior, each comprising forty weeks, five exercises 
per week. 

The instruction will consist mainly of daily oral examina- 
tion 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 accom- 
pany the examination by running comments upon the text, 
illustrating and explaining it, and showing how the law as 
therein stood has been modified or reversed by recent adjudica- 
tions 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 examination, viz: (1) The 
Law of Real Property; (2) The Law of Personal Property; 


(3) The Law of Pleading and Evidence ; (4) The Commercicil 
Law; (5) The Criminal Law; (6) Chancery and Chancery 
Pleadings; (7) The Statute Law of the State; (8) The Con- 
stitution 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 thor- 
oughly 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 successful 
examination for license. Therefore our course of study is so 
arranged as fully to meet both of these ends. 

Eirst — The curriculum of the Junior Class will embrace 
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 reasonable fidelity, can go before the Chan- 
cellor 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 examination 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 Chan- 
cellor, and pass, he will be admitted to the Senior Class, of 
course, and without further examination, in case he shall desire 
to finish his course with us and take a degree of Batchelor of 
laws. On the other hand, if he prefer to postpone his examina- 
tion 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-gradnate course, since it must be taken before gradua- 
tion ; but it is a pO'St-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 


Blackstone's Commentaries. Clarke's Criminal Law. 

Stephen on Pleading. Clarke's Criminal Procedure. 

1st. Vol. Greenleaf on Evidence. Kent's Commentaries (Commercial 

Smith on Personal Property. Chapters). 

Mississippi Code, 1892. Mississippi Code, 1892. 

Mississippi Constitution. 

Constitution of United States. 

Cooley's Principles of Constitutional. 

The Senior Year 


Lawson on Contracts. 

Bigelow on Torts. Real Estate Reviewed (Kent). 

Boone on Corporations. International Law (Kent). 

Bispham's Equity. Federal Judicial System (Kent). 

Barton's Suit in Equity. Curtis' United States Court. 

Mississippi Code, 1892. Cooley's Constitutional Limitations. 

Mississippi Constitution. United States Constitution, historically. 
Mississippi Jurisprudence, historically. 

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 lessons of the Junior Class. 

Moot Courts will be conduct-ed 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. 



Millsaps College is named in honor of Major R. W. Mill- 
saps, whose munificent gifts have made the existence of the 
institution possible. The College is the property of the Meth- 
odist E23iscopal Church, South, and was organized by the con- 
current action of the Mississippi and IS^orth Mississippi Con- 
ferences. It is not sectarian, however, but numbers among its 
j)atrons members of all the Christian denominations. 

The College has an endowment of $100,000, and several 
partially endowed scholarships. The buildings and the grounds 
are worth about $100,000. The first scholastic session began 
September 29th, 1892, and the College has had remarkable 
prosperity from the beginning. The generous founder. Major 
Millsaps, by the gift of the Webster Science Hall, at a cost of 
$iO,000, and the Jackson College property, at a cost of more 
than $30,000, has greatly enlarged our facilities. 


Jackson, the capital of the State, and the seat of the Col- 
lege, is easily accessible by five lines of railway. Fourteen 
passenger trains arrive and depart daily. 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 difficult to find within the 
limits of the State. The location secures all the advantages of 
the town and yet supplies all the healtliful conditions and 
immunities of the country. Jackson is a small city of 10,000, 
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 Galloway, 
President of the Board of Trustees, resides here, and his lec- 
tures and special sermons delivered from time to time add 
greatly to the interest and profit of each session. 






Millsaps College is prepared to offer the very finest ad- 
vantages in the study of astronomy. Mr. Dan A, James, of 
Yazoo City, Miss., has huilt an observatory for the College in 
honor of the memory of his father, Mr. Peter James, and of his 
brother, Mr. Samuel James. He has also furnished the observ- 
atory with a magnificent telescope. 


The Library has commodious quarters for alcoves and a 
reading room in Webster Science Hall. It is a matter of great 
gratification that the College, so early in its history, has such 
a large and valuable collection of books. Most of the well- 
selected libraries of the late Dr. C. K. Marshall, and Kev. 
W. Gr. Millsaps, besides many excellent volumes from Ex- 
Chancellor Edward Mayes, Kev. A. F. Watkins and others, 
have been generously contributed. In addition to his other 
munificent gifts, Major R. W. Millsaps has made many valu- 
able contributions to the Library. 


Mrs. J. R. Bingham, of CarroUton, Miss., has given 
$1,000.00 to endow the 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 bj^-laws of their own fram- 
ing. They are named, respectively, the Galloway and Lamar 
Societies, and contribute greatly to the improvement of their 


Boarding Facilities 

We have established "Students' Homes/' capable of 
accommodating a limit-ed number of boarders, and each placed 
in charge of a Chi'istian family. Two of these homes, Asbury 
Home and Williams Home, each with a capacity of from 
twenty-f our 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 j)ref er, lodge 
there and take their meals elsewhere. ISTo student will be per- 
mitted to room at the cottages without special permission from 
the President. 

We are now perfecting arrangements for opening a large 
dormitory by the beginning of the next session, where board 
will be furnished at very moderate cost under the most favor- 
able conditions. 


The friends of the late John A. Ellis, of the Mississippi 
Conference, and Rev. J. H. Brooks, of the ISTorth Mississippi 
Conference, 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. 


Several scholarships have been established, the income 
from which will be used in aiding deserving young men iu 
securing a collegiate education. — The W. H. Tribbett Scholar- 
ship, the W. H. Watkins Scholarship, the Jefferson Davis 
Scholarship (established by Mrs. Annie Davis Gunning), and 
the Peebles Scholarship (established by Mrs. IN". P. Mc- 


Under the direction of Mrs. J. E, Bingham, of Carroll- 
ton, Miss., a fund has been raised to establish a memorial in 
honor of the late Eev. J. S. Oakley, who was for many years 


an honored' member of the Xorth Mississippi Conference. The 
foUowiuff Sunday Schools have contributed to this fund: 
Macon, Black Hawk, CarroUton, Rosedale, Starkville ; Wood 
Street, Water Valley, and Winona. 

College Mails 

All correspondence intended for students at the College 
should be addressed care MiJlsaps College. Mails are distrib- 
uted to students on the cam^Dus, 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 assig-ned, without permission of the President and 
the Professor in his department. 


Written examinations will be held three times a year, and 
special examinations at other times as the several professors 
may elect. 

There is a tendency among students to withdraw just 
before or in the midst of the June examinations. This result- 
in a loss to the student, for examinations are more than a test 
of knowledge. They are an educational instrument for teach- 
ing method, promptitude, self-reliance; for training in 
accuracy, and for developing in the student the power of con- 
centration of attention and readiness in the shaping and ar- 
ranging of thought. Examinations will not be given in advance 
of the set time. ISTo 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 

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. 



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, wdiolesome gov- 
ernment are not desired and will not be retained. 

Certificates of Good Character 

Candidates for admission are required to give satisfactory 
evidence of good, moral character ; and, if 'the candidate comea 
from another college, he must show that he was honorably dis- 


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. 

4. Essay. The Clark medal. 

Candidates for Admission 

Applicants for admission must report to the President 
and to the Secretary 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 will be required to 
board in one of the Students' Homes ot in private famili-es 
near the College. ISTew students should be present on Monday 
and Tuesday that they may be examined and classed before 
the opening day, Wednesday, September 24. 


Entrance Examinations 

Examinations for those applying for admission into Mill- 
saps College will be held September 23-24. See calendar, on 
page 2. See detailed statement as to entrance requirements, 
page 15. 


With the help of friends, the students have equipped a 
commodious gymnasium. 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 enthusi- 
astic 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 wor- 
ship 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 enter- 
tainment, occasional lectures are delivered in the College 
Chapel by distinguished speakers. 


Expenses==Lit8rary Department 

Tuition for full scholastic year $30.00 

Incideutal fee 5.00 

Library fee 1.00 

The tuition may be paid in two installments, as follows : 
Eirst payment, $15.00, at the beginning of the session, and 
the second payment, $15.00, the first of February. The Inci- 
dental and Library fees must be paid in full when the student 

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. Stu- 
dents 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 elsew^here, 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 moral gifts 
and capabilities, who are compelled to reduce the cost of living 
to the minimum in order to enjoy the advantages of educa- 
tional institutions. 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 living below $7 per month. Our facilities for accom- 
modating this class of students have been enlarged. 

In addition to the Tuition and Incidental Fees, students 
in Laboratory Work will be charged a fee of $5 ; students on 
graduation will be required to pay a diploma fee of $5. 

Tuition in the Law Department, $50. 






The main object of this department is to prepare students 
for the Freshman class of the College. The lack, at present, of 
good training schools in our State makes the need for such a 
department imperative. 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 depart- 
ment the facilities they need for bringing up these studies. 


'No student will be admitted into this department who is 
under 12 years of age. For entrance into the First Year Pre- 
paratory Class, the pupil must be able to read well, and must 
display a fair knowledge of the rudiments of English Gram- 
mar, Geography and Arithmetic. In other words, he must be 
familiar with the leading facts in geography, particularly that 
of Europe and America; should be prepared to solve intel- 
ligently examples in Grammar School Arithmetic to Powers 
and Roots, and in English Grammar should know well the 
parts of speech and their modification, and the construction 
and analysis of simple sentences. 

Applicants for admission into the Second Year Class will 
be expected to have completed Geography, United States His- 
tory, High School Arithmetic, Elementary Algebra and Eng- 
lish 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 
Csesar would be too abrupt for most students, selections from 
Yiri Romse are read in class during the last quarter of the first 
year, in connection with the First Latin Book. It is therefore 


recommended that students preparing to enter the Cgesar class 
read at least fifty pages in this or some equivalent text-book. 

Greek is begun in the second year of the Preparatory 
course, White's First Greek Book being the text-book used. 
Pupils are thoroughly drilled on the forms of the language, 
and are also familiarized with the principles of syntax treated 
of in the latter part of the First Book. This language is so 
taught as to render the student able by the end of the session 
to convert English sentences of moderate difficulty into Greek 
and to translate passages from Xenophon with facility. 

In the second term of the second year the study of prac- 
tical rhetoric is begun. The student is at this point drilled in 
the correction of exercises in false syntax, and is taught to dis- 
tinguish the principal figures of speech. These exercises are 
supplemented by compositions on familiar subjects. 

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 do^wai with the exceptioji 
of Latin and Greek. Physical Geography and Civil Govern- 
ment are not required of those taking Greek. In the work of 
the Department thoroughness is at all times insisted upon. 

In the second year a short course in Science is offered, 
so that the work of the Department covers all that is required 
for a first grade teacher's certificate in the public schools of our 

Students in this department who wish to prepare them- 
selves for ordinary business life may have their studies directed 
to this end. The work so arranged will embrace the Prepara- 
tory English Course with the addition of Book-keeping. Special 
attention wdll be given also to Penmanship, Practical Composi- 
tion, and Commercial Arithmetic. 

Those Avho purpose taking this course should correspond 
with the President or with the Headmaster of the Department.
