Objects.
To encourage and help those young men who believe it to be their solemn duty to fit themselves for an efficient ministry of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
To increase the efficiency and power of such men and women as desire to do more practical and effective Christian work.
To open to the burdened and circumscribed manual laborer, the doors through which he may, if he will, reach the fields of profitable and influential professional life.
To enable the working man whose labor has been largely with his muscles, to double his skill through the helpful suggestions of a cultivated mind.
To provide such instruction as shall be best adapted to the higher education of those who are compelled to labor at their trade while engaged in study, or who desire while studying to remain under the influences of their home or church.
To awaken in the character of young laboring men a strong and determined ambition to be useful to their fellow men.
To cultivate such a taste for the higher and most useful branches of learning as shall compel the students after they have left the college to continue to pursue the best and most practical branches of learning to the very highest walks of mental and scientific achievement.

Terms of Study.
The year will be divided into two terms. The first term will begin on the first Monday in October, and the second term on the first Monday in January, each term containing eighteen weeks.
Each student must begin with the term and must pledge himself to continue in the classes which he enters for the full term, provided he is not prevented by sickness or by circumstances beyond his control.
The evenings now set apart for recitations may be changed if more convenient for the college.

Conditions.
Blank applications for Scholarship in the College must be filled and signed by each applicant, which can be procured of the President or of the Secretary of the Board of Trustees.
No special grade of previous study is at present required for admission, as the purpose of the faculty is to assist any ambitious young man, without especial reference to previous study. The faculty will decide the question of admissability on the reception of the applications.
Expenses.
Each student must supply himself with the necessary books which include the text books used in the classes, and blank note books for taking notes of lectures.
The faculty assume of course no control or responsibility in matters of board or clothing.
The regular tuition is free.

Graduation.
To entitle a student to a certificate of graduation he must pass a creditable examination in the following-studies:
Greek,—Homer's Illiad and Xenophon's Anabasis: Latin—Cicero's Oration's, Virgil's Aeneid and Bucolics: German—General Written Correspondence, or French— General Written Correspondence: Logic—a comprehensive review: Rhetoric— a comprehensive review: Composition— a comprehensive review: Geography and History—ancient and modern : Elocution—General Examination: Geometry —Plane and Solid: Physiology and Hygiene.
Any student not desiring to graduate can select such studies as seem best suited to his needs.

Department of Bible Work.
We purpose to organize as soon as it is possible, a Department for Bible Study, for the training of the lay workers in the various branches of Church and evangelistic work. Special classes will be founded for the Critical Study of the Bible, especially for the training of Sunday-School Teachers and Pastors' assistants, and also classes for instruction in various methods of practical Missionary Labor. Admission to these classes will be free, but the instruction will be systematic, and certificates will be granted to such as creditably pass the required examinations.

Rules.
RULES FOR GOVERNMENT OF TEMPLE COLLEGE. I. Students must enter the Class Room promptly on time and leave it immediately at the close of the recitation. • II. Students are to give close attention to the lesson during recitation, and in no case use any means to divert the attention of another from the lesson.
III. Students must attend every recitation of the term
or send the Professor in charge a reasonable excuse.
IV. Students will use every honorable means to maintain the reputation of the College, and so far as reasonable,
aid each other in the studies whenever the opportunity
offers.
V. Students will at all times, whether in the Class
Rooms or in the Church Building, behave in an orderly
and gentlemanly manner and treat all the Professors with
true respect.
VI. Students will diligently and perseveringly study
the branches they enter upon for a full term in the class
which they elect when they enter, except when prevented
by sickness.

Support of the College.
The Institution depends entirely upon the Voluntary Contributions of philanthropic friends of Christianity and Education. It is desirable to make the College free of all tuition if possible, as many of the most talented young men are those who are too conscientious to leave their work even if they could be supported themselves, as they have others dependent on them; and a tuition would hinder such from entering the College. The class of young men who will be benefited by the College are among the most intelligent working men, and from such have come the largest portion of all the great men of our country.
We believe that for the purchase of College Buildings and to provide an adequate income for the running expenses, God will incline the hearts of His people to give directly and by bequests in their Wills.
At present the expenses are met by the gifts of the poor and by the voluntary giving of the income of a day's work each year by laboring men.
The permanency and success of the Institution so long needed, is unquestionably assured.

Order of Recitation.
The following order of Recitation is observed at present, but may be changed if the establishment of other classes should make it necessary.
MONDAY EVENING.
Senior Classes in Greek, and Latin, advanced classes in History and Hygiene.
TUESDAY EVENING.
Classes for beginners in Greek, Latin and French, Elocution.
THURSDAY EVENING.
Senior Classes in German and French, Rhetoric, Logic and English Composition, Mental and Moral Philosophy.
SATURDAY EVENING.
All grades of Mathematics, Philosophy and Extra Lectures.
Literary Societies debate once a month.
