his and all other centres of the capital city; furthermore, these lands were in the heart of what was to be the great metropolis of the future, when Boston and its fringe of beautiful cities and towns should come together under a single name and assume a place among the great cities of the world. As soon as the stress of the commercial disturbance of the seventies was relaxed, the first step forward in the general improvement of the Cambridge shore of the basin was taken. In the summer of 1880, the proprietors of two thirds of the lowlands were brought together in conference. Out of their deliberations sprang an agreement to make common interest in a work of improvement, which was projected on broad lines. The submerged lands lying between Main Street on the north, the Grand Junction Railroad on the west, and the bay of the Charles on the south, formed an irregular triangle, covering an area of about two hundred and fifteen acres, greater in extent than the Back Bay district of B
sts of Cambridge. Leander M. Hannum. If we recall the fact that soon after the first settlement of Cambridge, in the spring of 1631, it embraced a territory thirty-five miles in length, including the towns of Billerica, Bedford, Lexington, Arlington, Brighton, and Newton, we shall see that our area has greatly decreased, as the extreme length of our present territory is only four miles, and the total area about four thousand acres, in spite of the fact that by legislative acts of 1855 and 1880, portions of Watertown and Belmont were granted to Cambridge. It exalts our estimate of the earlier commercial importance of our city when we read that by an act of Congress approved January 11, 1805, it was enacted that Cambridge should be a port of delivery, and subject to the same regulations as other ports of delivery in the United States. The custom-house was never built, yet under the stimulus given to real-estate interests by this act, large tracts of land on Broadway were sold wit
and light gymnastics, designed to afford an opportunity for general development to all students of the university who are not members of the athletic teams, or who are not in need of specially prescribed exercises. All students desiring to enter as competitors in athletic contests are required to give evidence of their ability by making a series of strength tests, in addition to the regular physical examinations. Under this regime the attendance at the gymnasium has grown from about 500 in 1880 to 2000 and over in 1896. Perhaps the most radical difference between the old and new Harvard may be illustrated by the position the authorities have taken since 1882 in regard to athletic sports. In the later sixties, and all through the seventies, the athletic zeal and energies of the students were concentrated upon the production of a successful baseball nine and a winning boat crew. Given other institutions fired with the same ambition and equally persistent, it was only a question o
expenses for salaries. The accounts for the current year are, of course, not made up, but the number of students is already over 350, and the other figures will show an increase over all previous years.

Hart, Arthur Gilman, Caroline F. Orne, Charlotte Fiske Bates, and scores of others almost as well known. The Cambridge News was established by Mr. Daniel A. Buckley in the year 1880. This gentleman has a peculiar individuality and strong convictions, and his paper is mainly the exponent of his personal opinions of public men and their conduct of municipal affairs, which he does not hesitate to advance and maintain in forcible language. By that chance which is often the fate of would-be reformers, the editor of the News is not infrequently in a popular minority, but the honesty of his convictions has never been impugned, and those who differ from his views the most radi
the ever-increasing manifestation of the truth of God; anxious to blend the most earnest piety with the most active intelligence; and so to cultivate a deep, enthusiastic, reasonable faith; the Cambridge school stands very high among the powers which bid us hope great things for the work which the servants of Christ will do for his glory and the salvation of the world in the years to come. St. John's Memorial Chapel was built in 1869, by Mr. Robert Means Mason. Lawrence Hall, completed in 1880, is the gift of Mr. Amos Adams Lawrence. Reed Hall, containing the library, was built in 1875, by the founder, Mr. Reed. Four years after, Mr. John Appleton Burnham built Burnham Hall, the refectory. In 1893 Winthrop Hall was built by friends of the school, and was named after the Hon. Robert C. Winthrop, who until his death was president of the board of trustees of the school. The Deanery was given to the school by Mrs. Gray, after the death of Dean Gray. The first dean was the Rev. Dr
