ne of which it is built was brought from Nova Scotia, and the chapel was completed in 1858. Here are held the religious services of the University, consisting of morning prayers, attendance not compulsory, vesper service on Thursday afternoons from November until May, and Sunday evening services. As the University is non-sectarian, preachers of all denominations officiate at these exercises. The chapel was formerly used for notable wedding and funeral ceremonies, the obsequies of Professor Louis Agassiz, the eminent geologist and teacher, having been performed here. Next to the chapel is located the William Hayes Fogg Art Museum of Harvard University, the latest addition to the buildings in the college yard. It is of stone, facing Cambridge street, and consists of two parts, the front portion with two stories for exhibition rooms, the rear part forming a semi-circular lecture hall. The purpose which this museum is to fulfil, as stated by the donor, is to furnish a place for th

pansion of our present knowledge. The grave of Agassiz The Agassiz Museum. Many pilgrims go out toand pay their tribute of respect before the tomb of Agassiz. There is a nobler monument to the great scientist and his genius, and loved him accordingly. Professor Agassiz's interest in his collection for its own sake,t. Nearly all his money was expended upon it. In Louis Agassiz: his life and Correspondence, his wife quotes hiient to care for his beloved specimens. Although Agassiz was permitted to see only the beginning of the newthe Museum is the realization of a favorite plan of Agassiz. He wanted a Synoptic room set apart for a generalting rooms, to illustrate, according to the plan of Agassiz, succession in time and distribution in space of thpecimens to be studied and if necessary destroyed. Agassiz took especial pains to have duplicates, as many as upon the Museum, and learns to honor the memory of Agassiz more even than by the tomb in sacred Mount Auburn.

On the eleventh of February the number was for the time being completed by the election of Mrs. E. W. Gurney, wife of the Professor of History. Many professors had exp she grows in intellectual vigor and in personal graces at once. When Mrs. Louis Agassiz became a member of the governing body she entered upon the work with of years. She is now Secretary. At the time of the incorporation, in 1882, Mrs. Agassiz was chosen President and she began to take a more active part in the work ane other ladies also did. This is, of course, but a small part of the work of Mrs. Agassiz in behalf of the students. The third stage in the history of the movementies, those kindly services that had in the previous years been a pleasure to Mrs. Agassiz, Mrs. Gilman and the other ladies of the corporation.

Philosophical, Historical, Music, Glee and Banjo. All of these exist primarily for work, but a goodly social element is not lacking, and each club keeps open house at least once a year, when it has for its honored guest some man or woman well known in the world of scholars who speaks to the club on some interesting topic. Beside all of these clubs, the social element is represented by the Graduate Club, one of the most hospitable of Radcliffe organizations, and also by the teas which Mrs. Agassiz gives to the students on Wednesday afternoons during the year. In addition the four classes and the special students have their separate organizations, in which pleasure and business seem to have about equal importance. One of the most delightful features of life at Radcliffe is the opportunity afforded the students for meeting or hearing so many prominent men and women, and that this privilege is theirs is largely due to the courtesy of Harvard. Certainly it is a privilege to be ap

e Radcliffe students centres around old Fay House, rich for many with associations of days long gone, and rich for an ever increasing band of students with memories of most serious and most joyous hours. To men and women of Cambridge our old Fay House is well known. Many a time, bound, perhaps, on social pleasure, accepting the invitation of an Annex maid to an Idler tea, they have entered the wide doorway, walked through the broad hall to the drawing-room, where hangs the portrait of Mrs. Agassiz, our president, and where, I am glad to say, during the past winter, Radcliffe students have been able to find, many hours during the day, Miss Agnes Irwin, our dean. From the drawing-room these guests have doubtless gone through our little conversation room with its magazines and papers, its well worn copies of Life; and from here, where groups of girls may usually be found discussing any topic under the sun, from the latest fashion to the automaton theory, our friends probably passed

n hall we open the last door on the right and find ourselves in the Dean's room, face to face with a fine portrait of the honored president of the college, Mrs. Louis Agassiz. This room was once the parlor and as such it will always be remembered by the older students, for here they gathered about the open fire, chatting merrily, at Mrs. Agassiz's social afternoon teas. Crossing the hall we enter the conversation room, once used for recitations. Here on the tables are the latest magazines, the daily papers, and, as a matter of course, all the publications of our brother university, Harvard. Back of this room is another leading to the auditorium whic. Another broad staircase leads to the third story, and here we find more recitation rooms. At the head of the stairs hangs a lifelike portrait of Prof. Louis Agassiz which was made for the Columbian Fair. At the left is the botanical laboratory, a bright and cheery room containing collections interesting even to the uninit
