both sides seemed to be pleased with the result. The growth of the work is perhaps shown better in figures than in any other way. The following table exhibits the number of students each year from the first, with the receipts from tuition-fees and the 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.

The patriotic spirit is stirred by the daily sight of the Washington Elm, under which Washington is said to have drawn his sword when he took command of the American army. Upon this favored town have descended in especial force inspiring influences from the patriot Washington, the gentle and sweet-spirited Longfellow, the genial Holmes, and the broad-minded Lowell. Thus an atmosphere is created which is calculated to sustain the studious spirit. Fitting School for boys and girls. In 1879, Miss K. V. Smith was encouraged by Ezra Abbot, John Fiske, Charles Eliot Norton, and Francis J. Child to open a private school for boys and girls at 16 Ash Street. It was removed the next year to 5 Phillips Place, and again changed to 54 Garden Street, and in 1887 to its present high and sunny locality at 13 Buckingham Street. The school aimed to give an education broader than usual, by methods tending toward intellectual independence, anticipating thereby a large number of the suggestion
ts of Cambridge. It now received the name of the Dana Library, in honor of Mr. Edmund T. Dana, who had given the land for the site of the Athenaeum building. Later Mr. Dana, by a codicil to his will, left fifteen thousand dollars for the increase and support of the library; but the city lost this bequest through legal objections to the form in which it was expressed. In 1874 the library, for the use of which a fee of one dollar a year had been charged, was made free to the public; and in 1879 the name was changed to the Cambridge Public Library. In 1875 the library contained seven thousand volumes; in 1885 it had increased to eighteen thousand; and in 1895 to about fifty thousand. In 1887, when the need of enlarged accommodations had become urgent, Mr. Frederick H. Rindge generously offered to give the city a large tract of land on Broadway, and to erect thereon a public library building. The offer was gratefully accepted, and the building was completed in June, 1889. It c
he opening of the Home the trustees were compelled to call on their friends for contributions to enable them to carry on this work which was so pressing. Their appeal was answered, and it is worthy of record that during the whole period of the existence of the Home no debt has ever been incurred. In 1878 an adjoining lot on Avon Hill Street was given by the Holly Tree Inn, and in the following year the house was enlarged so that from twenty-five to thirty children could be accommodated. In 1879 a gift of $300 from the Cambridge Horticultural Society was received, of which only the income could be spent, and this formed the beginning of a permanent fund, which has since been increased by legacies and gifts. Since it was impossible even to consider more than two thirds of the applications for admission, owing to the insufficient accommodations, the trustees, in the autumn of 1889, asked for subscriptions with which to build a larger and more convenient house on Avon Hill Street.

& Co., and as such gained a still wider reputation for skilled book-making. In 1879 John Wilson and Charles E. Wentworth became the proprietors, and largely increasck company was formed, under the name of the Geo. F. Blake Manufacturing Co.; in 1879 the plant and business of the Knowles Steam Pump Works, at Warren, Mass., were p manufacturer of confectionery, began business in Cambridgeport in 1870, and in 1879 erected the brick building on the corner of Broadway and Windsor Street, where hess kept on increasing, and the buildings were enlarged from time to time. In 1879 Charles L. Jones died, and the business from that time to this has been carried h in 1875 had been eighty-four million feet, fell to fifty-seven million feet in 1879. From 1879 the increase in consumption was gradual; but in 1886, when the li1879 the increase in consumption was gradual; but in 1886, when the lighting of the streets was largely changed from gas to electricity, a new impetus became apparent in indoor illumination, and the sales of gas, which in that year were
