the address, in Consecration Dell, as it has since been called. An audience of two thousand persons, seated in a temporary amphitheatre among the trees, added a scene of picturesque beauty to the impressive solemnity of the occasion. In the year 1835 the legislature incorporated the proprietors as the Mount Auburn Corporation. The first purchase of land contained seventy-two acres; the present area is one hundred and thirty-six acres. The first recorded burial is that of a child of James Boyd, of Roxbury, July 6, 1832, on Mountain Avenue; the second, that of Mrs. Hastings, July 12, 1832, on the same avenue. On elevated ground, not far distant from the gateway, stands a chapel made of granite, of Gothic design. Within are marble statues, in a sitting position, of the late Judge Story, and of John Winthrop, the first governor of Massachusetts. Two others standing, of John Adams, the second president of the United States, and James Otis, the patriot. The Sphinx, the Egyptian

Gillespie soon dropped out, and for a number of years Cowen's experiments to simplify the loom resulted only in outlay. It was a brand-new thing.

Although some fire departments used Boyd hose, a cotton fabric riveted together like leather hose, and then rubber-lined, it was hard to persuade the trade that rubber-lined cotton hose was suitable for garden hose. In 1873 Colonel Dodge successfully tested the first length ever made of rubber-lined, multiply-woven cotton fire hose before the fire commissioners of Boston. It had been made on the Gillespie-Cowen loom; but though the hose itself was good, it was so difficult to persuade the fire departments to use it, that Colonel D
