The authorities of Millsaps College prefer that appli-
cants for admission into the Colleare should submit them-
MILLSAPS COLLEGE 15
selves to the reg-ular test of an entrance examination. But
in case the Principals of Preparatory schools desire to
have their pupils admitted on trial without examination,
arrangements looking to that end may be had 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-
I. Latin and Greek — Applicants for admission into
the Freshman Class are examined on the work of the
Preparatory Department. This, as may be seen, com-
prises, in Latin, the reading of four books of Ccesar'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
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:
Latest — The First Latin Book (Collar and Darnell); Grad-
atim (Collar); Grammar (Bennett.;
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); Grammar (Goodwin); History
16 MILLSAPS COLLEGE
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-
tinuous 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 pre-requisite to the best
results, that throughout the first year, in both Latin and
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 sufficient.
Certainly as much history as is indicc.ted above may
be asked of the preparatory schools, but it is hoped that
they will make a place also for works of a more discursive
character, in which the stories of Greece and Rome will
find more attractive, not to say romantic treatment.
II. Mathematics — For admission to the Freshman
Class in Mathematics, a thorough knowledge of Arithme-
tic, 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
examinations. Such examinations help to better methods
of study, and tend to remove unreasonable dread of en-
trance examinations. The student making the best aver-
age grade in Freshman Mathematics during the session
of 1903-1904 was prepared for College in the Kilmichael
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 De-
partment. He is expected to be thoroughly familiar with
gramatical forms and he must be acquainted with the ele-
MILLSAPS COLLEGE 17
mentary facts of practical rhetoric. He will be required
to write a short compositioa — correct in spelling, punc-
tuation, and grammar — on a subject chosen from the books
assigned for reading.
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. No student need apply
for admission into the Freshman Class who is not pre-
pared to stand an examination on the works prescribed
"for careful study" or on specific equivalents for these
works. We shall expect preparation on the works given
1904 and 1905— George Eliot's Silas Mariner; Carlyle's Es-
say on Burns; The Sir Roger de Coverley Papers in
the Spectator; Goldsmith's Vicar of Wakefield; Scott's
Ivanhoe; Shakespeare's Julius Caesar and Merchant
of Venice; Lowell's Vision of Sir Launfal; Tenny-
son's Princess; Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient
1906 and 1907 — Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice and
Macbeth; The Sir Roger de Coverley Papers in the
Spectator; Irving's Life of Goldsmith; Coleridge's
Ancient Mariner; Scott's Ivanhoe and Lady of the
Lake; Tennyson's Gareth and Lynette, Lancelot and
Elaine, The Passing of Arthur, Lowell's Vision of
Sir Launfal; George Eliot's Silas Mariner.
FOR CAREFUL STUDY.
1904 and 1905— Shakespeare's Macbeth; Milton's L'Alle-
gro, II Penseroso, Comus, and Lycidas; Burke's
Speech on Conciliation with America; Macaulay's Es-
says on Milton and on Addison.
18 MILLSAPS COLLEGE
1906— Shakespeare's Julius Caesar; Milton's L'Allegro,
II Penseroso, Comos, and Lycidas; Burke's Speech on
Conciliation; Macaulay's Essays on Milton and on the
Life of Johnson.
IV. History — For entrance to the Freshman Class,
something more is expected than the elementary courses
given in our primary schools. The applicant will be ex-
amined on United States History, and on either English or
General History. He should be familiar with books of the
grade of those used in our Preparatory Department.
V. French — The applicant is supposed to have had
one year's training in Elementary Grammar and composi-
tion with from 100 to 200 pages of easy prose. He will be
examined on simple forms and on his ability to translate
simple sentences from French to English, and from Eng-
lish to French.
The Bachelor's Degree
The reader of the arrangement of courses will notice
that three undergraduate degrees are offered by the Lit-
erary Department of the College— B. A., B. S., Ph. B. It
will also be seen from the following schedule that the prep-
aration 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,
with an option on a Modern Language. 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 Mathe-
B. S. Degree — The Bachelor of Science course offers
special work in Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics.
MILLSAPS COLLEGE 19
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 applicant must stand an
approved examination in English, Mathematics, Latin,
History and French.
Ph. B. Degreb— The Bachelor of Philosophy course offers
a somewhat greater freedom of election. In order to
be allowed to enter upon Ph. B. course, the applicant
must stand an approved examination in English,
Mathematics and French.
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 edu-
cation. Applicants for the the Senior Class are ex-
amined in the Junior course.
The Master's Degree
Each school of collegiate instruction offers work look-
ing toward 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 sub-
ject chosen— know 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 bach-
elor's degree, spend at least one year at Millsaps College,
engaged in graduate study. In most cases non-resident
study during two or more years will be accepted as the
equivalent of one year's resident work. All examinations
must be stood in Jackson. Attention is directed to the
schedule of degrees following, and to the statement in
connection with the account of work done in each depart-
ment. The courses so announced are major courses; a
20 MILLSAPS COLLEGE
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 Deg-ree 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, or Astronomy. His second
minor must be in a school in which he has already
finished the full course for the bachelor's degree.

II. Ethics, Political Economy, Christian Evidences.
22 MILLSAPS COLLEGE
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 relating to the various departments of
The English Bible and Steele's Outlines of Bible Study
will be used as text-books in connection with the Depart-
ment of Biblical Instruction.
Course Leading to the Master'' s Degree.
Applicants for the degree of M. A. or M. S. will be
required, in this department, to devote at least one year
to the study of Hamilton's Metaphysics, the History of
Philosophy and the Evidences of Christianity.
Text-Books: Hamilton's Lectures, History of Philos-
ophy (Schwegler), The Grounds of Theistic and Christian
II. The School of Latin and Greek
In the outline of departmental courses the text and
editions used in this department are enumerated. Fcr
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 correspondingl}'^ thorough. The end
in view is to furnish the student with an accurate founda-
tion for classical scholarship. The entire session is there-
fore devoted to the study of Cicero and Xenophon. The
MILLSAPS COLLEGE 23
forms are carefully reviewed, the systematic study of the
syntax is begun, and the importance ofa cquiring- a vocab-
ulary 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 practi-
cally applied to the writing of weekly exercises in prose
The main object of the course outlined for the Sopho-
more Class is to read the texts selected with some appre-
ciation of their value as works of art. To this end the
class is first put in possession of the literary and histori-
cal setting of each selection by a required course of paral-
lel reading, supplemented by 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 ord'er 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 some-
what advanced stage in the study of the classics. Matters
of grammatical detail are therefore subordinated, in the
work of this year, to studies of an historical and literary
kind. Homer and Vergil have been purposely deferred
until this time when the class shall presumabl}^ 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
^neid as types of the epic, and of the history in general
of this form of poetry.
24 MILLSAPS COLLEGE
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 examina-
tion 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 result 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 a Greek play on the stage, and so
to an intelligent estimate of its dramatic as well as of its
Courses Leading to the Master'' s Degree.
Two courses are offered leading to the degree of Mas-
ter 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 the 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 history 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);
Grammaire Comparee du Grec et du Latin (Henry,

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. Greek: An Introduction
to Greek Epigraphy (Robertson); Grammatik der
Attischenlnschriften (Meisterhans);Greek Historical
Inscriptions (Hicks);The Dialects of Greece (Smith);
Delectus Inscriptionum Graecarum (Cauer.)
Of the works here enumerated several are] required
only in part. The candidate is expected, for example, to
have a general 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
Willmanns, 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.

Hi. The School of Mathematics and
The subjects taught in this school are subdivided as
follows: I. Pure Mathematics. II. Applied Mathematics.
In pure Mathematics the following subjects are taught:
Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Analytic Geometry,
Differential and Intregral Calculus, and Determinants and
Theory of Equations; and in Applied Mathematics the fol-
lowing: Land Surveying, Mechanics, and Astronomy.
The general aim is to have the work of this depart-
ment bi ought 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 can the best results be obtained. The text-
book will form the basis of instruction to be supplemented
by frequent explanations, criticisms, and discussions of
the progress of inquiry on leading and crucial points of
I. Pure Mathematics. — Algebra and Geometry are
the studies of the Freshman year. In Algebra the aim
will be to secure to the student skill and accuracy in alge-
braic work and an increased power of abstract analysis
and reasoning. The value of Geometry, in promoting,
when properly studied and taught, definiteness of concep-
tion, precision and directness of statement and correctness
of deduction is well known. The student will be aided in
forming correct geometrical conceptions and in gaining an
insight into the true spirit and methods of geometrical
reasoning. Throughout the course original exercises will
MILLSAPS COLLEGE 27
The required studies of the Sophomore year are Plane
and Spherical Trigfonometry and Plane Analytic Geome-
try. The course in Trigonometry goes beyond the mere
solution of triangles and includes, as far as the time allotted
to the subject will admit, a study of Trigonometry as a
branch of mathematical analysis. The course given in
Plane Analytic Geometry, being the last course in Pure
Mathematics required for all degrees, is made correspond-
ingly prominent and thorough.
Junior Course (A) — Embraces the Differential and
Integral 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. degree.
Junior Course (B) — Includes: 1, Solid Analytic Geome-
try. 2, Determinants and the Theory of Equations.
II. Applied Mathematics — The course in Astronomy,
Senior Mathematics (A), includes two recitations per
week for the year and frequent use of the six-inch Equa-
torical Telescope of the James Observatory. In general,
it can be more profitably taken in the Senior year. The
course in Mechanics, Senior Mathematics (B), requires
two recitations per week during the year, and is most
advantageously taken in the Senior year. The class in
Surveying will recite once a week dui-ing the second term
and have one two-hour field practice period per week dur-
ing the third term. The instruments used on the field
are the chain, the compass, and the transit. This course
belongs, properly, in the Sophomore year, but ma}-- be

IV. The School of English
The work of the Freshman year will be pursued with
two purposes in view. It will be an aim, first, throug^h
compositions and exercises, throug-h criticisms and lec-
tures, through a study of the principles and forms of g^ood
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, selec-
tions from American literature will be studied in class
twice a week with the purpose mainly of developing liter-
ary appreciation 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 litera-
ture in general. In the third term a brief review of the
history of American literature will be made. Parallel
reading will be assigned.
In the first term of the Sophomore year the time will
be given to the study of Eng-lish literature. In addition to
studying the development of the literature, the class will
MILLSAPS COLLEGE 29
study masterpieces in recitation. Parallel work will be
assigned. In the second and third terms the class will
study selections from Tennyson and Browning in recita-
tion and as parallel work. Throughout the whole year
there will be work in prose composition, and some purely
creative work will be required in story writing.
In the first term of the Junior year, Anglo-Saxon will
be studied with the primary purpose of giving the student
an introductory study in the history of the English lan-
guage. Supplementary to this work, and continuing
throughout the year, Lounsbury's "History of the English
Language" will be studied. In the second and third terms
Shakespeare will be studied in class and as parallel.
The work of the Senior class will consist of a study of
selected novels from the works of the great English novel-
ists of the nineteenth century. Each member of the class
will be required to select the works of some special writer
to whom he shall devote particular study throughout the
year, presenting the results of his work in a paper on
some theme that shall embrace the entire work lof the
author chosen. While greatest emphasis will be placed on
this work and on the study of special novels in class, the
student is urged to use Cross's "The Development of the
Novel" and Perry's "Prose Fiction" in connection with
the lectures that will be given.
Courses Leading to the Master's Degree.
Students who apply for graduate work in English may
elect for a philological course of study of Old English poe-
try, taking some assigned subject in philology for special
investigation; 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 ot some
aspect of Victorian literature.

V- The School of History
In the outline of courses leading to degrees, the text-
books used in the work in History are enumerated. The
College 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
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 impres-
sions of the changes from era to era, already gained by the
student from his reading.
The work of the Freshman year is concerned with the
outlines of the leading events in the History of Europe.
Attention is given to causes, to people, and to historical
movements, rather than to the narratives of battles and
In the Sophomore year a careful study is made of one
or two periods in American History, either the formation
of the government and the origin of political parties, or of
the events leading up to the Civil War, and the period of
The Junior year, which is elective, offers a study of
the most striking events in modern history, the French
Revolution and the changes that grew out of it.
The Senior year is given to Political Science, and,
after studying our own government as it is, takes up the
outlines of the existing governments in Europe, and lays
the foundations for intelligent political criticism.
MILLSAPS COLLEGE 3^
VI. The School of Modern Languages
A course extending' over three years is offered in both
French and German, the third year in each being given in
case sufficient students make application for the work.
The first year's work in each language comprises:
1, careful drill in pronunciation; 2, the rudiments of gram-
mar, including the inflection of the reg-ular and the more
common irreg-ular verbs, the plural of nouns, the inflection
of adjectives, participles and pronouns; the use of personal
pronouns, common adverbs, prepositions and conjunc-
tions; order of words in the sentence, and elementary
rules of syntax; 3, abundant easy exercises, designed not
only to fix in memory the forms and principles of gram-
mar, but also to cultivate readiness in reproducing" natural
forms of expression; 4, the reading- of 100 to 175 duodec-
imo pages of graduated texts, with constant practice in
translating- into the language easy variations of the sen-
tences read (the teacher giving the English), and in re-
producing from memory sentences previously read; 5,
writing the language from dictation.
The second year's work comprises: 1, the reading of
400 to 600 pages of easy modern prose in the form of
stories, plays, or historical or biographical sketches; 2,
constant practice, as in the previous 3'ear, in translating
easy variations upon the texts read; 3, frequent abstracts,
sometimes oral and sometimes written, of portions of the
text already read; 4, writing the language from dictation;
5, continued drill upon the rudiments of grammar, with
constant application in the construction of sentences; 6,
mastery of the forms and use of pronouns, pronominal
32 MILLSAPS COLLEGE
adjectives, of all but the rare, irregular verb forms, and
of the simpler uses of the conditional and subjunctive.
The advanced work in both French and German will
be arranged by the instructor after the classes are organ-
ized. An outline of courses already offered appear in the
"Outline of Departmental Courses," but the texts used
may be changed by the instructor.
VII. 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 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 pub-
lic 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. Gas,
water, experiment tables, hoods and pneumatic troughs
are to be found in convenient places. There is a cellar for
gas and electric generators, and for assay and other fur-
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
chemistry. Those in the Ph B. course are required to
study only one year of physics. Each student will be ex-
pected to keep accurate notes.
MILLSAPS COLLEGE 33
Chemistry — This subject is taught by recitations and
lectures and work which each student must perform in the
laboratory. It is aimed that the laboratory be kept well
equipped with apparatus necessary to the correct appre-
ciation of the science. Each studentjhashis 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 slighest phenomenon, and habits of
neatness, skill and economy.
I. The Sophomore course consists per week of three
recitations in General Chemistry and one period in the
laboratory experimenting with substances considered in
the recitation. Members of the class will be called upon
to assist in experiments performed during lecture hours.
The work of this year is wholly introductory, being a nec-
essary prerequisite to either of the Junior Courses, one of
which should be entered if the student would have a satis-
factory appreciation of chemistry.
II. 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. In
addition to the text a course of lectures will be given, and
students will be expected to consult various works of ref-
erence. All facilities are provided for the preparation of
typical organic compounds, and for intelligent work in
Qualitative Analysis. The latter is not confined to mere
test tube exercises, but is the subject of regular quizzes.
Attention jis given to Physiological Chemistry, and the
whole course will appeal specially to preliminary medical
III. The Junior (B) course is intended to be a contin-
uation of the work of the Sophomore year. Each year
some phase of advanced chemistry will be taught — theo-
retical, inorganic, or physical. A study of chemical calcu-
34 MILLSAPS COLLEGE
lations will be included. The course extends through one
hour of recitation and one 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 themselves for the Senior work. The
laboratory work will be the same as in course (A), subject
to such changes as may be needed.
IV. The Seniors spend one period weekly through-
out the year upon Quantitative Analysis, including
vapor density and molecular weight determinations, and
the analysis of such substances as drinking water, fertil-
izers, soils and ores. A special room is fitted up for this
course. Library copies of Watt's Revised Dictionary,
Thorp's Applied Chemistry, and Roscoe and Schorlem-
mer'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 labora-
tory, 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 thoughtfulness.
Physics I. — The Junior year, required of all students
before graduation, consists of two hours' recitation and
one period in the laboratory every week. The physical
laboratory will soon be equipped for effective work.
Experiments are carefully performed by the students
themselves. The mental side of laboratory work is stressed
fully as much as the manual. Lectures and quizzes will
be given in connection with the laboratory work.
II. The Senior course is largely a study of special
topics in physics. The texts will be varied from year to
MILLSAPS COLLEGE 35
year. It is designed that this class especially shall keep
in touch with the scientific progress of the day.
Course Leading to the Master's Degree. ■
In the post-graduate work of this department, 200
hours of laboratory work in the subject chosen are
In Chemistry, courses are offered are follows: The
Analysis of Potable and Mineral Waters; texts, Mason's
Examination of Water and Fresenins' Quantitative Analy-
sis, Band, II. (b) A study by analysis of the various
Mississippi Mineral products, such as Iron Ores, Gypsum,
Marl, Fire Clay and Limestone, (c) An advanced course
in accurate Quantitative Analysis, and molecular weight
determinations; text, Clowes and Coleman, (d) A course
in the preparation and analysis ot Organic Substances;
In Physics the courses offered are measurements in
(a) mechanics, (b) heat, or (c) electricity. The physical
laboratory is being equipped for work of this order; text,
Ames' and Bliss' Manual of Experiments in Physics.
In addition, a satisfactory examination must be passed
in one of the following reading courses:
Chemistry — Remsen's Theoretical Chemistry, Lach-
man's Spirit of Organic Chemistry, Jones' Physical Chem-
istry, Thorp's Industrial Chemistry, Halliburton's Chem-
ical Physiology and Pathology.
Physics — Peddie's Physics, Thompson's Electricity
and Magnetism, Cajori's History of Physics, Glazebrook's
Heat and Light, Stewart's Conservation of Energy.
The courses outlined are for major subjects, and for
minors each will be reduced one-half.
Vin. The School of Geology and Biology
J. M. SULLIVAN.
One of the front rooms on the lower floor of Webster
Science Hall is occupied by this department. The Musuem
36 MILLSAPS COLLEGE
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 and spring to localities easily accessible from Jackson,
give the class a practical conception of this kind of survey-
ing. 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. Annual reports of the Smithsonian Institution and
of the U. S. Geological Survey are used with the class.
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.
Selected articles in geological reports.
Biology — William's Biological Geology, Wilson's Cell
MILLSAPS COLLEGE 37
in Development and Inheritance, Haddon's Study of Man.
The design of this course is to supply the student with
a knowledge of the fundamental principles of Sociology
and to prepare him for a more ready application of the
problems involved. The city is studied as affording a
large number of social problems in concrete form, and in
addition to the work in the text, original work is done in
the city of Jackson.

DEPARTMENT OF PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION
THE LAW SCHOOL
William Belton Murrah, D. D., LL. D., President
of the Colleg-e.
Edward Mayes, LL. D., Dean and Professor; for
fourteen and a half years Professor of Law in the State
Albert H. Whitfield, LL. D., Professor; Chief Jus-
tice of the Supreme Court; for three and a half years Pro-
fessor of Law in the State University.
William R. Harper, 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; Crim-
inal Law; Criminal Procedure; Law of Corporations;
Constitutional Law; Federal Courts, Jurisdiction and

In the ori^^inal 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
MILLSAPS COLLEGE 39
assured, a Department of Professional Education, em-
bodying- 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 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 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 fourteen years of experience
as a law professor in the State University, and with a rep-
utation for ability and skill as an instructor which was
thoroughly established. He had already secured the val-
uable 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
afterward obtained: Judge J. A. P. Campbell, Ex-Chief
Justice of the Supreme Court; Hon. Frank Johnston, Ex-
Attorney-General; Hon S. S. Calhoon, Ex- Circuit Judge,
and President of the Constitutional Convention; Hon.
Thos. A. McWillie, State Reporter.
The total attendance during the first year was twenty-
eight, of whom fifteen were classed as Seniors. At the
expiration of the colege 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.
40 MILLSAPS COLLEGE
We are now closing* the eigfhth annual session of our Law
School. We point with pride to the results. We now
have near one hundred g-raduates; and in all the seven
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 examina-
tion answers being graded and valued exclusively by the
Judges of the Supreme Court, puts beyond question or
cavil the genuineness of that result. We do not ask of our
patrons or those who may contemplate becoming' our
patrons to accept any statement of our own. The finding-
and the statement are those of the Judicial Department of
the State; and every law graduate of Millsaps Collegfe
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
The locatian of the school at Jackson enables the
managers to offer to the students extraordinary advan-
tages, it 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 inval-
uable series of object lessons and an unfailing fountain of
instruction to the students. Here also are located courts
of all kinds known in the State, embracing not only the
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 jurisdic-
tion and practice. Here also is located the extensive and
valuable State Law Librar}^ unequalled in the State, the
MILLSAPS COLLEGE 41
privileg-es 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, 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 methods and practice of
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 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 attendanK;e in the school.
Each student will be required to present satisfactory
certificates of good moral character.
Each student will be required to pay a tuition fee upon
entrance, of fifty dollars, for the session's instruction. No
rebate from this fee will be made, because a student may
desire to attend for a period less than a full session.
Course of Study
The full course of study will consist of two years, the
Junior and Senior, each comprising forty weeks, five exer-
cises 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 way. The pro-
fessor will accompany the examination by running com-
ments upon the text, illustrating and explaining it, and
showing how the law as therein stood has been modified or
reversed by recent adjudications and legislation.
The course will be carefully planned and conducted so
42 MILLSAPS COLLEGE
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, viz: (1) The Law of Real Property; (2) The Law of
Personal Property; (3) The Law of Pleading- and Evi-
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
The objects set for accomplishment by this school
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 pre-
pare 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. There-
fore our course of study is so arranged as fully to meet
both of these ends.
First — The curriculum of the Junior Class will embrace
each of 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 an}^ stu-
dent, 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 Chancellor at the expiration of
his Junior year, with a certainty of success. The prepara-
tion 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 Chan-
cellor, or he may stand his examination before the law pro-
fessor simply for advancement to the Senior Class if he
MILLSAPS COLLEGE 43
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 speak-
ing, a post-graduate course, since it must be taken before
graduation; but it is a post-licentiate course, and the degree
conferred at its conclusion represents that much legal
accomplishment in excess of the learning needed for license
The Senior Class is required to attend the recitations

Millsaps College is named in honor of Major R. W.
Millsaps, whose munificent gifts have made the existence
of the institution possible. The College is the property of
the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and was organized
by the concurrent action of the Mississippi and North
Mississippi Conferences. It is not sectarian, however,
but numbers among its patrons members of all the Chris-
The College has an endowment of $100,000, and sev-
eral partially endowed scolarships. The buildings and
the grounds are worth about $100,000. The first scholas-
tic session began September 29, 1892, and the College Las
had remarkable prosperity from the beginning. The gen-
erous founder, Major Millsaps, by the gift of the Webster
Science Hall, at a cost of $10,000, 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
College, is easily accessible by five lines of railway.
Twenty-eight passenger trains arrive and depart daily.
The College is located just north of the ciCy, on a com-
manding elevation, with perfect drainage, and in a beauti-
ful campus of fifty or more acres. A healthier spot it
would be difl&cult to find within the limits of theState. 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 20,000, with handsome
churches and public buildings and is noted for the refine-
ment and intelligence of its people. Its literary, social and
MILLSAPS COLLEGE 45
relig-ious 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.
The James Observatory
Millsaps College is prepared to offer the very finest
advantages in the study of astronomy. The late Mr. Dan
A. James, of Yazoo City, Miss., built an observatory for
the College in honor of the memory of his father, Mr.
Peter James, and of his brother, Mr. Samuel James. He
also furnished the observatory with a magnificent telescope.
The Library has commodious quarters for alcoves
and a reading room in Webster Science Hall. It is a mat-
ter 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 Rev. W. G. Millsaps, besides many excellent
volumes from Ex-Chancellor Edward Mayes, Rev. A. F.
Watkins and others have been generously contributed. In
addition to his other munificent gifts. Major R. W. Mill-
saps has made many valuable contributions to the Library.
Martha A. Turner Library. — Mrs. J. R. Bingham, of
Carrollton, 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 pur-
chasing books in this special field.
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
art conducted by the students, under constitutions and
46 MILLSAPS COLLEGE
by-laws of their own framing. They are named, respect-
ively, the Galloway and Lamar Societies, and contribute
greatly to the improvement of their members.
We have established "Students' Homes," capable of
accommodating a limited number of boarders, and each
placed in charge of a Christian family. In addition we
have several small cottages in which students can board
themselves at a reduced cost; or if they prefer, lodge there
and take their meals elsewhere. 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 Mississippi Conference, and Rev. J. H. Brooks,
of the North Mississippi Conference, have built two cot-
tages for the accommodation of students. These homes
are named, respectively, the John A, Ellis Cottage and the
J, H. Brooks Cottage.
Through the generosity of Major Millsaps we have
recently come into possession of additional valuable prop-
erty including a large dormitory building. This supplies
the finest facilities for boarding accommodations. The
rooms are heated with steam, and are furnished with iron
bedsteads, and mattresses, chairs and tables. The manage-
ment of the Hall is in charge of Rev. W.L.Hightower, a mem-
ber of the Mississippi Conference and an accomplished
Table board in Founders Hall can be had at $7.00 per
month. All of the advantages of the Hall, including lodg-
ing, fires in winter and table board will cost only $9.00 per
Several scholarships have been established, the income

from which will be used in aiding deserving young men in
securing a collegiate education. — The W. H. Tribbett
Scholarship, the W. H. Watkins Scholarship, the Jefferson
Davis Scholarship, established by Mrs. Annie Davis Gun-
ning, and the Peebles Scholarship, established by Mrs. N.
The Oakley Memorial. — Under the direction of Mrs.
J. R. Bingham, of Carrollton, Miss., a fund has been raised
to establish a memorial in honor of the late Rev. J. S. Oak-
ley, who was for many years an honored member of the
North Mississippi Conference. The following Sunday
Schools have contributed to this fund: Macon; Black Hawk;
Carrollton; Rosedale;Starkvine; Wood Street; Water Valley;
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 postofi&ce.
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 the
consent of the Facult}^ A request to be allowed to drop
a study must be in writing.
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
results in a loss to the student, for examinations are more
48 MILLSAPS COLLEGE
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 arranging 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 sub-
mitted himself to the prescribed tests.
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,
wholesome government are not desired and will not be
Certificates of Good Character
Candidates for admission are required to give satisfac-
tory evidence of good, moral character; and, if the candi-
date comes from another college, he must show that he
was honorably discharged.
Prizes are annually awarded for excellence in:
1. Oratory. The Carl J. v. Seutter medal and the Oscar
Kearney Andrews medal.
2. Reading the Sacred Scriptures. The Gunning
3. Declamation. The Millsaps medal.
4. Essay. The Clark medal.
Candidates for Admission
Applicants for admission must report to the President
MILLSAPS COLLEGE 49
and to the Secretary as soon as possible after their arrival,
and secure board at some place approved by the Colleg-e
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 Student's Homes
or in private families near the College. New students
should be present on Tuesday that they may be exam-
ined and classed before the opening day, Wednesday,
Examinations for those applying for admission into
Millsaps College will be held September 20-21. See calen-
dar on page 2. See detailed statement as to entrance
requirements, page 14.
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 enthusiastic interest in healthful sports. A mem-
ber of the Faculty is president of this association.
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
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
so MILLSAPS COLLEGE
main building-. All students are required to attend church
at least once every Sunday, and are expected to be present
at the Sunda}- School.
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.

MILLSAPS COLLEGE 51
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
advantag-es of educational institutions. Millsaps College
will always be in hearty sympathy with this class of young
men, and the authorities will encourage them in every pos-
Many of our students, by boarding themselves, reduce
the cost of living- below $7 per month. Our facilties for
accommodating 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 in Geology will be charged $1.00; students on
graduation will be required to pay a diploma fee of ^5.00.
Tuition in Law Department, $50.
THE PREPARATORY DEPARTMENT
HEAD MASTER RICKETTS
ASSISTANT MASTER HUDDLESTON
The main object of this depaatment is to prepare stu-
dents 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 reg-
ular college classes. Young men who are prepared for
college in their English studies, but who are behind in
their Latin or Greek, will find in this department the facii
ities they need for bringing up their studies.
52 MILLSAPS COLLEGE
REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION
No student will be admitted into this department who
is under 14 years of age. For entrance into the First
Year preparatory class, the pupil must be able to read
well, and must display a fair knowledg-e of the rudiments
of English Grammar, Geography and Arithmetic. In
other words, he must be familiar with the leading facts in
geography, should be prepared to solve intelligently
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 con-
struction and analysis of simple sentences.
Applicants for admission into the Second Year Class
will be expected to have completed Geography, United
States History, High School Arithmetic, Elementary Alge-
bra and English 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 dis-
connected sentences to Caesar would be too abrupt for
most students, selections from Viri Romas 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 Caesar class read at
least fifty pages in this or some equivalenftext-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
practical rhetoric is begun. The student is at this point
drilled in the correction of exercises in false syntax, and
MILLSAPS COLLEGE S3
IS taught to disting-uish the principal figures of speech.
These exercises are supplemented by compositions on
The course in English is designed not only to teach
the student to write and speak with grammatical correct-
ness, but also to inspire in him a love of good literature.
The reading and study of classics like Scott's Lady of the
Lake and Ben Franklin's Autobiography can hardly fail of
being beneficial in effect.
Those who do not take a regular college course will be
expected to pursue all the studies laid down with the
exception of Latin and Greek. Physical Geography and
Civil Government are not required of those taking Greek.
In the 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 pub-
lic schools of our State.
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 Preparatory English Course with the addition of
Bookkeeping. Special attention will be given also to
Penmanship, Practical Composition, and Commercial
Those who purpose taking this course should corres-
pond with the President or with the Headmaster of the
