Mr. Abraham Ireland, who departed this life January 24th, 1753, in ye 81st year of his age. Pray God to give grace—To fly to Christ—To prepare for Eternity. In 1870, the city erected a simple but appropriate monument to mark the place of burial of a few of the Cambridge Minute-Men, killed April 19, 1775. On the occasion of itDr. McKenzie also suggested adding the prophetic vision of Samuel Adams, Oh! what a glorious morning is this! The full inscription is: Erected by the city, A. D. 1870 to the memory of John Hicks,—William Marcy,—Moses Richardson, buried here. Jason Russell,—Jabez Wyman,—Jason Winship, buried in Menotomy. men of Cambridge, who fell in defence of the liberty of the people, April 19th, 1775. Oh! what a glorious morning is this! In searching in 1870, to find the place of burial preparatory to erecting this monument, excavations were made along the northerly line of the grounds, and several skulls were found with bullet holes, showing where some of
ment of the gymnasium at Harvard in 1860, gymnasiums were built at Amherst, Dartmouth, Princeton, Yale, Wesleyan, and several other colleges. In the early sixties, the present game of baseball was first played at Harvard, and the Cambridge city government granted a petition for the use of the Common near the Washington Elm as a practice ground for the college students. This was used until the spring of 1864, after which the Delta was used for baseball games. In the next decade, beginning 1870, several more college gymnasiums were built, including the Hemenway Gymnasium at Harvard University. The Harvard Athletic Association was established in 1874, and the Rugby football game, which seems to have such a hold upon the American public, was introduced at Harvard at about this time. With the completion of the Hemenway Gymnasium, and its equipment with a new system of apparatus, a new era was introduced in gymnasium construction and in gymnasium methods. Some of the features which
In addition to these ten grammar schools mentioned there are three others that contain grammar pupils to the number of 388 (December, 1895),—the Corlett, Agassiz, and Sleeper. These schools send their pupils of the upper grades to such of the other grammar schools as are in their vicinity. With the exception of the Corlett, the same schools have primary as well as grammar grades. The Wellington School is a training school for teachers. There had previously been a training school from 1870 to 1882. An interval of two years without such a school brought into bold relief its value to the city. Consequently, in 1884, the present school was organized. It has a small regular force of teachers, selected with reference to their ability, not only to teach, but to guide novices in the art. In addition there are from twenty to thirty pupil teachers, graduates of normal schools, and others of equivalent previous training, who are paid humble salaries, and who, as they prove their abil
n as many of the leading universities in the country are now filled by its graduates, while others hold high positions of different kinds. This shows that some of them get a right start at least on the road to higher learning in this school. Mr. Lyman R. Williston opened a school for girls, on Irving Street in 1862. It was removed the following year to its present situation. It is called The Berkeley Street School from its location. Mr. Williston conducted the school with success until 1870, and then transferred it to his brother-in-law, Mr. Justin E. Gale, who, in turn, passed it over in 1881 to Miss Margaret R. Ingols, who still carries it on. The Browne and Nichols School. In the fall of 1883, at the suggestion of Professor Child, Professor Norton, and others interested in the establishment in Cambridge of a school for boys which should effectively meet the demands of the new education, the Browne and Nichols School was founded at No. 11 Appian Way. The principals had g
ained about two years, and during that time purchased land and commenced the erection of St. Mary's Church in Cambridgeport. In December, 1860, he resigned, and died soon after. For a number of months the parish was without a permanent pastor, during which period its spiritual wants were supplied by the Rev. Joseph Coyle. He died on November 21, 1862. Early in 1862 the Rev. John W. Donohue was appointed, and assumed the duties of pastor. In 1866 the Cambridgeport parish was set off. In 1870 Somerville was created a separate parish, reducing the parish of St. John's to its present dimensions, comprising the whole of East Cambridge and that part of Cambridgeport which lies between the Grand Junction Railroad, Windsor Street, and the Broad Canal. The number of the parishioners continued to increase so rapidly that the church on Fourth Street could not sufficiently accommodate them, and in 1872 Bishop Williams, the successor of Bishop Fitzpatrick, bought a lot of land on Spring S
sted. It antedates the earliest of the remaining lodges by nearly fifty years,—years marked by unusual vicissitudes in Masonic institutions everywhere,—and it still remains the largest of the five now in existence. Of these, Putnam Lodge, of East Cambridge, numbering now 159 members according to the report of August 31, 1895, was chartered in 1854; Mount Olivet Lodge was chartered in 1863, and reports 151 members; Mizpah was chartered in 1868, and has 180 members; Charity Lodge, dating from 1870, has 101 members. The Cambridge Royal Arch Chapter was chartered in 1864, and Cambridge Commandery of Knights Templar in 1890. Freemasonry in Cambridge owes much to Rev. Lucius R. Paige, who has had an interesting Masonic history. As the natural result of early elections and of a very long life (Dr. Paige is now in his ninety-fifth year), he is the senior Past Master of Masons in Massachusetts, the senior Past Commander of Knights Templar in the State and probably in the United States.

The yoorge close, manufacturer of confectionery, began business in Cambridgeport in 1870, and in 1879 erected the brick building on the corner of Broadway and Windsor St of James C.

In 1870 they erected the brick building on Broadway which they now occupy as a laborator
