POSTAL TUITION. The excellence of this system, if faithfully followed out, has been proved in the case of the Editor's Pupils over and over again. Full particulars as to the system are given in this Guide.

LAST MONTHS' AND FORTNIGHTS' CLASSES.

Special Classes, formed mainly for the benefit of Postal Pupils, but which others can also join, commence, one a month, and the other a fortnight, before each Examination.

RESIDENTIAL PUPILS. The Editor receives Resident Pupils, to prepare for this Examination, into his house at Bromley, Kent.

Prospectus containing full particulars as to Terms, Regulations, &c., will be sent on application toJOHN GIBSON, M.A.,
