encouraging sign that they are unwilling to content themselves with words. Professor Byerly (mathematics) said: I have found the spirit, industry, and ability of the girls admirable; indeed, the average has invariably been higher in my classes in the Annex than in my classes in the college, in spite of the fact that the college classes, since they are in elective courses in a subject of acknowledged difficulty, have been necessarily formed of picked men. Of the classes in philosophy, Professor Palmer wrote: The four classes that I have taught there have in each case shown a scholarship somewhat higher than the parallel class in college. . . . The girls being keener questioners, I have usually found myself obliged to treat my subject more fundamentally with them than when I have discussed it with my college classes. Other professors of those early days wrote in equally strong terms with regard to the students, and one of the students said of the advantages of the Annex, I have becom

Goodwin, F. W. Taussig, A. B. Hart, G. H. Palmer, and many other members of the Harvard Faculty; also by Colonel Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Rt. Rev. William Lawrence, Mr. John Graham Brooks, Rt.

Dr. Washington Gladden, etc., etc. The lecturers, like the teachers, receive no pay for their services in money. The Prospect Union is not a charitable institution. Its members, who number over six hundred, pay a regular fee of three dollars a year or twenty-five cents a month. They are workingmen of almost every nationality, and of every shade of political and religious belief. The Union rests upon an absolutely non-sectaria

Russian Freedom; modelled on a similar society which, with Free Russia as its organ, was doing good work in England. The object of the American society was to aid by all moral and legal means the Russian patriots in their efforts to obtain for their country political freedom and self-government. Its circular was signed by Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Julia Ward Howe, John Greenleaf Whittier, James Russell Lowell, George Kennan, William Lloyd Garrison, Henry I. Bowditch, F. W. Bird, Alice Freeman Palmer, Charles G. Ames, Edward L. Pierce, Frank B. Sanborn, Annie Fields, E. Benjamin Andrews, Lillie B. Chace Wyman, Samuel L. Clemens, and Joseph H. Twitchell. James Russell Lowell, writing to Francis J. Garrison in 1891, says: Between mote and beam, I think this time Russia has the latter in her eye, though God knows we have motes enough in ours. So you may take my name even if it be in vain, as I think it will be. It was through this society that she made the acquaintance of Mme.

Spartali, the friend of Rossetti and Du Maurier, the idol of literary and artistic London. A warm friendship grew up between them. Together they frequented the antiquaries, gleaning small treasures of ancient lace and peasant jewels. I bought this by the Muse Stillman's advice : this explanation guaranteed the wisdom of purchasing the small rose diamond ring set in black enamel. December 9. Dined with Daisy Chanler. We met there one Brewster and Hendrik Anderson. After dinner came Palmer [son of Courtland] and his sister. He is a pianist of real power and charm — made me think of Paderewski, when I first heard him .... December 10. Drove past the Trevi Fountain and to the Coliseum, where we walked awhile. Ladies came to hear me talk about Women's Clubs. This talk, which I had rather dreaded to give, passed off pleasantly.... Most of the ladies present expressed the desire to have a small and select club of women in Rome. Maud volunteered to make the first effort, with

pidemic of negrolynching, which roused deep indignation throughout the country. On May 20 the Journal records a wonderful meeting at Chickering Hall, called by the colored women of Boston, to protest against the lynching of negroes in the South. Mrs. Butler M. Wilson presided, an octoroon and a woman of education. Her opening address was excellent in spirit and in execution. A daughter of Mrs. Ruffin also wrote an excellent address: Mrs. Cheney's was very earnest and impressive. Alice Freeman Palmer spoke as I have never before heard her. My rather brief speech was much applauded, as were indeed all of the others. Mrs. Richard Hallowell was on the platform and introduced Mrs. Wilson. this brief speech brought upon her a shower of letters, mostly anonymous, from persons who saw only the anti-negro side of this matter, so dreadful in every aspect. These letters were often denunciatory, sometimes furious in tone, especially one addressed to Mrs. Howe, Negro Sympathizer, Bos

ical observations were made here until the present Observatory was completed. The next family to occupy the house was that of Dr. A. P. Peabody from which fact it is sometimes referred to as the Peabody House. At present it is the home of Professor Palmer and his charming wife, Mrs. Alice Freeman Palmer, formerly President of Wellesley College. Facing Quincy Square which lies to the south of the Dana House, stands two dormitories, outside the college yard and owned by private individuals. Mrs. Alice Freeman Palmer, formerly President of Wellesley College. Facing Quincy Square which lies to the south of the Dana House, stands two dormitories, outside the college yard and owned by private individuals. The more noticeable of the two is Beck Hall, named for the Latin Professor Charles Beck, and for many years considered the finest in its appointments as it surely was the most expensive of the dormitories. The broad front is rendered very attractive with bright window gardens, while the eastern side, overlooking the lawn, used for tennis and for Class Day spreads, is in its season richly decorated with the luxuriant Ampelopsis veitchii. The other dormitory, Quincy Hall, named for this note

University Museum. Harvard Observatory. No department of Harvard University is more worthy of its pride than the Astronomical Observatory. Founded only fifty-five years ago, it has from the beginning been one of the foremost contributors to the marvellous growth of astronomical science during the latter half of this century. Its beginning was humble. The fine old house on the corner of Harvard and Quincy streets, lately the home of Dr. A. P. Peabody and now occupied by Professor Palmer, was its first headquarters. The round cupola on top is a relic of this period, for it was built to support an astronomical dome to shelter the small telescope then used. The first recorded observation was on the evening of December 31, 1839. The first director, Professor W. C. Bond, was appointed the following February. Professor Bond and his assistants worked enthusiastically with such resources as they could command. The Observatory might have struggled long with its inferior

use of the great collection of books, and at last, without any request on our part, the privileges of the Library were given to the officers and students by a formal vote of the Corporation-after they had been enjoyed under the original oral agreement for a number of years! The first half-dozen who responded to the circular letter were, in their order, Professors William E. Byerly, Benjamin Peirce, Frederick H. Hedge, William W. Goodwin and William James. Professors Norton, Peabody, Hill, Palmer, Gurney, Shaler, Briggs, Goodale, Emerton, White, Paine and others followed. When these acceptances had been received, it was thought safe to issue an announcement, and the first public intimation of the scheme was made in a circular headed Private collegiate instruction for women, issued on Washington's Birthday, 1879. It announced in rather vague terms that some of the professors of Harvard College had consented to give instruction to properly prepared women of a grade not below that wh
