                           Education.                    



   With the July number, 1905, according  to announcement, we began
what may properly he called our Correspondence Course in the studies
laid down in the A. M. E. Discipline for ministers  entering or seeking
to enter the itinerant service of the Church.  It is the purpose to make
this course of real value to all who  wish to compass  the work in an
earnest, profitable way.   It will be impossible, with the small assistance
we are able to command in clerical work, to undertake to answer letters
by personal correspondence, for that would  require  more  time than we
can give;  but those pursuing  the course  may  feel free to write  con-
cerning any  point upon  which  they feel doubt or desire  information;
and the answer will appear in the succeeding issue of THE REVIEW.
This rule will not be varied from  under any circumstances.
    It is thought best to put the matter in the form of question and
answer, in order to give  as much definiteness and point to the work
as possible. The Student will find the questions on any particular study
given in one number  of THE  REVIEW  and the proper answers in the
next number. In this way he will have three months to prepare him-
self upon the questions by research, and  can test the correctness of his
knowledge  by the answers  when  they appear.  We  advise that every
student put his own answer  in writing in a blank  book kept for that
purpose: in that way alone he can make progress in accurate scholar-
ship.
    Remember, above all else, that in this plan you have a school brought
to your very door, and no expense except the $1.00 subscription you pay
for THE REVIEW. This is a sincere effort to help the man who cannot go
to, school away from home.
               THE FIRST BOOK EMBRY'S DIGEST.
    Binney's Compend used to be the standard work used by the A. M.
E. Church as a digest on theology, but with the publication of Embry's
Digest in 1890, the Compend was superseded by it, or at least made only
an alternative. Dr. Embry himself, however, acknowledges the work of
Binney, and every student of the Digest ought to read Binney also.
    On page 407 of the A. M. E. Discipline for 1905 will be found the
studies  for admission  to  the  traveling  connection.   The  books there,
