(In use at Eton, Harrow, Merchant Taylors', etc.). “Few living classical scholars have done so much, or nearly so much, as Mr. Fowle to smooth the way of the classical scholar by a series of elementary works which for accuracy in detail and perfection of method, as well as practical utility, are, as a whole, unsurpassed by any similar works in this country. . . Their tone is scholarly and thorough, and no real difficulty. . . is shirked."-School Board Chronicle.

"It has seldom been our fortune to light upon a Greek grammar in which economy and retrenchment of space went so thoroughly along with lucidity and solidity of information. . . A vast amount of thought and pains has been bestowed upon such arrangements of declensions, divisions of a declension, tenses, and tables of verbs, as obviate wearisome repetition and establish a sequence appreciable by the learner." Saturday Review.

By what proofs did Joseph try the sincerity of their repentance, and with what result? Comment on the various stages of the Egyptian famine, and on Joseph's utilization of its consequences. What has been remarked on ch. xlviii. v. 14 ? Wbo is the angel of v. 16?

How do you reconcile Gen. xlvi. v. 15 with Acts vii. v. 14 ?
What is usually inferred from Gen. xli. v. 45? Which tribe,
descended from the son of Jacob's concubine, rose to an
equality with the descendants of Leah and Rachel ? Mention

is an abomination unto the Egyptians,” The land of Goshen.”

(6) Comment on ch. xv. vv. 3—9, showing how Christ_argues against the evil effects of a superstitious tradition. Do you identify Mary Magdalene with the penitent of Luke vii.? (See also Junior paper).

(C) Explain the following allusions which occur in St. Paul's farewell address to the Elders of the Ephesian Church at Miletus:“I am pure from the blood of all men;" “Grievous wolves shall enter in among you”; “ These hands have ministered to my necessities" ; “ It is more blessed to give than to receive." What were the vows of the Nazarites ? Explain St. Paul's conformity with them on the occasion of his fifth visit to Jerusalem.

(d) Whence did the custom of chanting the Psalms originate ? Was this practice retained by the early Church ? How were the Psalms formerly portioned out ? Account for the retention of the Prayer Book version of the Psalter. When was the Gloria Patri added to each Psalm, and to the appointed Canticles ? What difference of custom prevails between the Eastern and Western Churches in this respect ? Whence are the Versicles taken?

(e) Wherefore does Paley reject the coincidence noticeable between 1 Cor. xi. and St. Luke's account of the institution of the Eucharist, although the conformity is close between them? Give his arguments that 1 Cor. was written from Ephesus and not from Philippi, as stated. Why does he conclude that in the letter alluded to 1 Cor. vii. v. 1, no allusion was made to the flagrant irregularities tolerated among them ?
