boys early learned, however, that this event was due mainly to the renown attained, as a preacher and author, by the Rev. Thomas Shepard, known in his day as the holy, heavenly, sweet-affecting, and soul-ravishing Mr. Shepard, a graduate of EmmanuelMr. Shepard, a graduate of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, England, who came to America in 1635. A voluminous author, some of whose works are yet reprinted in England, he was the ruling spirit of the Cambridge synod, which was held in 1637 to pronounce against antinomian and familistiidge. Fifty years ago, Cambridge boys knew all this tradition very well; and they knew also that the soul-ravishing Mr. Shepard, after publishing a dozen or so of his books in England, printed the last two upon the press which came to Cambridge icompiled it had dissatisfied Cotton Mather, who had hoped that a little more of art was to be employed in it, and good Mr. Shepard thus ventured to criticise its original compilers, the Rev. Richard Mather of Dorchester and the Rev. Messrs. Eliot an

of those who departed were filled without delay. In the autumn of 1635, Rev. Thomas Shepard arrived from England with his congregation, and forthwith the meeting-hohusetts, with many of her friends and kinsfolk. In view of these proceedings, Shepard seems to have dreaded the displeasure of Vane, who had returned to England; fo other settlers a few years later to occupy that spot and call it Middletown. Shepard remained in the New Town, and his presence there is believed to have shaped ita respect unto this vigilancy, and the enlightening and powerful ministry of Mr. Shepard, that, when the foundation of a college was to be laid, Cambridge rather tha proceeded many notable preachers, who were made such by their sitting under Mr. Shepard's ministry. Mather's Magnalia, III. v. 12. The founding of Harvard Colsm as unscriptural. In spite of august synods, in spite of the vigilancy of Mr. Shepard and other learned parsons, it was impossible to keel the serpent of heresy o
lineation or explication. 1. It must not be forgotten, then, what a heritage Cambridge has. One of the first places to be founded in our New England; the abode for a time of the Hartford Colony; the home of that unique group of men of whom Thomas Shepard was the leader and inspirer; by reason of the qualities in him, and in them, selected to be the site of the infant college; the gathering-place of the first ecclesiastical synod on the North Amercan continent; the place where the first book i of its entire history is also rounding out. For the sole purpose of great history, of high intellectual privilege, and of the blessings of poetry and other supreme manifestations of genius, is to produce fruit. Noblesse oblige. And all that Thomas Shepard and the bringing hither of the college and the glorious storied days of the municipality, all that the Washington Elm and Craigie House and Elmwood and our cis-Atlantic Westminster at Mount Auburn might presage, have begun to fulfill themsel
therly boundary. This God's Acre, as it is often called, contains the dust of many of the most eminent persons in Massachusetts: the early ministers of the town, Shepard, Mitchel, Oakes, Appleton, Hilliard, and others; early presidents of Harvard College, Dunster, Chauncy, Willard; the first settlers and proprietors, Simon Stone, of Cambridge should add an honor to its semicenten-nial this year by erecting a simple monument or tablet near that of Jonathan Mitchel, in commemoration of Rev. Thomas Shepard, who died August 25, 1649. He made it possible for Cambridge to be honorably known everywhere as the University City. An eye-witness and historian of his n these grounds, and not far from where we are now standing, the first Christian proprietor of this soil, Simon Stone, a companion in faith and tribulation of our Shepard, and one of the noble band of Puritans, who first established the Church of God in this Town, built his dwelling, and planted trees which yet bear their fruit.

-culture purposes of life? It is just this schooling that the English High School aims to provide. Cambridge has nine grammar schools, each for both sexes, with six grades of pupils. The following table of these schools is based on the data of December, 1895:— Schools.When founded.Teachers.Pupils.Principals. Allston184814571Benjamin W. Roberts. Harvard184119742James S. Barrell.

It may be said in passing that Mr. Roberts has been principal of the Allston School from its beginning. At the age of eighty, he shows the vigor and progressive spirit of his prime. Many of the
them, another company of about sixty persons had come from England, having Thomas Shepard as their leader. On a mural tablet in the church which bears his name it is recorded, as it is in Shepard's autobiography, that Some went before, and writ to me of providing a place for a company of us, one of which was John Bridge. Johnurch thus entered into the new church, which was formed in February, 1636. Thomas Shepard was installed as the minister. It was a notable gathering of the chief men England. But it had a rare dignity from the presence of Thomas Hooker and Thomas Shepard, and the earnest exiles who were with them. The people of the town were re drum was for, and was told it was to call people to the meeting-house where Mr. Shepard preached. He found his way to the place, and was so deeply impressed that hg about in those days. In 1648 the Cambridge Platform was framed.

s the just self-esteem of his section with considerations like these: I will make no odious comparisons between Harvard College and other universities for the proportion of worthy men therein educated; but New England, compared with other parts of America, may certainly boast of having brought forth very many eminent men, in proportion more than any of them; and of Harvard College (herein truly a Sion College) it may be said, this and that man were bred there; of whom not the least was Mr. Thomas Shepard. The local pride, more or less justifiable, which renders tumid the periods of this energetic old Puritan, was a useful passion at a time when literature was obliged to develop independently in widely separated colonies. It is a useful passion still in a country of a hundred million inhabitants separated by such spatial and spiritual intervals as lie between Boston, New York, Richmond, Chicago, New Orleans, and San Francisco. It has stimulated the production of our innumerable local
