xercises included an address by the mayor and an oration by Rev. Alexander McKenzie. On May 1, 1876, a centennial tree, raised from the seed of the Washington Elm by Mr. John Owen, was presented to the city, and planted on the westerly side of the Common with suitable exercises. Several thousand persons were present, together with the city government, and among the features of the occasion were an address by the mayor and an original hymn sung by the children of the public schools. In 1882, a fine bronze statue of John Bridge, in Puritan costume, one of the most prominent of the early settlers of the town, selectman from 1635 to 1652, and representative for several terms in the General Court, and deacon of the First Church, was presented to the city by his descendant, Samuel J. Bridge, and erected in the northeasterly corner of the Common. It was dedicated November 28, after an interesting address by Colonel Thomas Wentworth Higginson and remarks by the mayor, President Eliot,

ranite, the design being taken from the entrance to an Egyptian temple. It bears the following in bold raised letters:— Then shall the Dust return to the Earth as it was; and the Spirit shall return unto God who gave it. Near this, at the entrance of a high natural ridge, with a level surface, running through the grounds, called Indian Ridge, is the sarcophagus of Gaspar Spurzheim, the celebrated phrenologist; he died in 1832. Farther on is that of the poet Longfellow, who died in 1882. On Central Avenue, near the gateway, is the bronze statue, sitting, of Dr. Nathaniel Bowditch. On High Cedar Hill stands a beautiful marble temple; beneath which rest the remains of Hon. Samuel Appleton. Others eminent in public life rest here in this sacred soil:— Charles Sumner.Rufus Choate.

prayers, the school requires that a student shall pursue a certain number of courses of study chosen from among the following subjects,—Old Testament, New Testament, Church History, Comparative Religion, Ethics, Sociology, Theology, and Homiletics and Pastoral Care. Instruction in Elocution is also given. The instruction in the school is nonsectarian; the eleven officers and teachers on its staff, representing various denominations, unite in encouraging an unfettered search for truth. In 1882 a generous benefactor gave to the university for its Law School a new hall, which, it was calculated, would accommodate the growth of the school for half a century. In a single decade the school has outgrown this building; in 1896 the students number four hundred and sixty-five. This rapid growth and the great prosperity of the present are in large measure due to the method of instruction pursued in the school, the so-called Case System, in which students, instead of committing to memory te
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 of time when the efforts in this direction would be carried to excess. The Harvard faculty concluded that its students had reached this stage in 1882, and appointed a committee to regulate and control athletic sports in the university. The work and policy of this committee is too familiar to the Cambridge public to call for any comment here. In the mean time, another phase of the athletic problem has presented itse

I may safely assert, she continues, that among these college students were the healthiest women, both physically and mentally, that
dition 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 ability to d
ton, secretary; Mr. Henry N. Tilton, treasurer; and the members came from all parts of Cambridge. A somewhat more formal organization was made in December of that year. Miss S. A. Pear was appointed registrar to record and furnish to those interested the facts learned through investigation, and an office was provided by the city in the Central Square building in Cambridgeport. As a necessary complement to the registration, the work of visiting those in distress was begun in the spring of 1882, and, to enable the visitors to compare their experience and to get the advantage of mutual advice, a conference was formed in Old Cambridge in April, another in Cambridgeport in May, and one in North Cambridge in May, 1884. These have met regularly twice each month since their organization (except during the summer), and have done some remarkably good work. A similar conference was formed in East Cambridge in the spring of 1894, so that the whole city is now included in the system of frien

Previous tin the wing. D. M. Hazen & Co., manufacturers of confectionery, began business in 1876. In 1882 they purchased fifty-six hundred feet of land, and a two-story building, located at 42 Elm Streetoy), and builds it up to so high a plane, without a single period of relapse. In each year since 1882 the annual sales have increased, the credit has bettered, and the standing of the concern become bsequently additional ovens were found necessary, and the business had a very rapid growth. In 1882 the F. A. Kennedy Co. was incorporated under the laws of Massachusetts, to succeed F. A. Kennedy,ssachusetts, with a capital of twenty-five thousand dollars. It was organized as a corporation in 1882, the business having been established in 1862. The business is the only one of the kind within
