Not in Starr. Worldcat suggests "Samuel Moore Ellis" but we are unable to confirm it. We did find a S. M. Ellis that was awarded a D. D. from Mississippi College in 1894. The Foreword states that the author was for thirty years a prominent Baptist minister in Mississippi, afterwards lecturing for some years in Tennessee on the moral problems of society.
"The dominant thought running throughout this little volume is that that the Bible is a book that belongs in the State for moral instruction even as it belongs in the Church for religious instruction."
