From the above it will be seen that all of our mayors have been New England men, and that of the entire number sixteen were born in Massachusetts. Two of the number were born in Cambridge, and five were Boston boys. Sixteen were born under town-meeting rule, and received t
and sagaciously as any business concern of highest standing; various memorable battles as between the sons of Belial and the children of light in civic directions, which had stirred our city profoundly prior to the last decade; the wonderfully tonic prestige of large victories in these directions, and much more to the same purport. All this constituted our more immediate political heritage down to ten years ago. 3. It was in this condition that the city was, as it turned the milestone of 1885, and faced toward 1886. It had had a glorious past. That past was such as to make it all alive with noblest civic and ethical impulses. That past, for now a good number of years, had been rendering possible the abolition of partisanship in municipal affairs, and certain great and victorious struggles betwixt the baser and the nobler elements in the city's life. But now there was creeping like a paralysis over the city that chief modern foe to good civics, the power of the rum traffic.
e made it possible for Cambridge to be honorably known everywhere as the University City. An eye-witness and historian of his time says, To make the whole world understand that spiritual learning was the thing they chiefly desired, to sanctify the other, and make the whole lump holy, and that learning, being set upon its right object, might not contend for error instead of truth, they chose this Place, being then under the orthodox and soul-flourishing Ministry of Mr. Thomas Shepheard. In 1885 the City Council placed this ancient burial-ground in charge of the Board of Cemetery Commissioners. By their direction it was thoroughly renovated, ornamental trees and shrubs were planted, the gravestones were righted and otherwise put in a condition suitably becoming the resting-place of so many of our honored dead. About the year 1811, with the continued growth of East Cambridge and Cambridgeport, the old ground had become crowded, and more than once entirely filled; then an urgent ca

I may safely assert, she continues, that among these college students were the healthiest women, both physically and mentally, that I have ever met. This emphatic testimony is supported by the experience of Radcl
lassics and mathematics, much more time than usual was devoted to modern languages, science, and history. By keeping the classes small, and thereby adapting the work to the individual needs and capacities of pupils, the teachers were enabled from the first to give not only excellent preparation for the university and the scientific school, but also thorough training in branches not required for the entrance examinations. The success of the school was immediate, and its growth rapid. In 1885 more commodious quarters were found at No. 8 Garden Street. In 1887 the gymnasium was built. In 1889, in order to increase the economy of time and effort that their peculiar organization had already effected, the principals added a preparatory department, and were thereby enabled to lay out a continuous course of eight years, almost exclusively under the same instructor in each subject, for pupils beginning at the age of nine. The wisdom of these principles has been amply justified by exper
he Tribune was the first newspaper especially identified with Old Cambridge, and it has continued to occupy its chosen field without competition, proving both the wise judgment displayed in selecting its home, and also that it has satisfactorily filled the field. At first, the Tribune was printed at the University Press, although its type was set at its office, 19 Brattle Square; but later it was removed to No. 3 Linden Street, opposite the college library, where it is still published. In 1885, Mr. Dexter's health failing, he sold the Tribune to Mr. William B. Howland, who, after conducting it with very great success for five years, was induced to go to New York as business manager of the Christian Union (now The Outlook), and he sold the property to Mr. F. Stanhope Hill, who has since carried the Tribune on upon the same general lines that have marked its course from the first number, giving it a literary tone, and avoiding sensationalism. Among the contributors to the Tribune
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 contained a book-room, or stack, capable of holding eighty-five thousand volumes, a reading-room measuring sixty by twe
-president. Levi Hedge (Ll. D.) was treasurer until 1831, when, on account of ill-health and expected absence from town, he asked to be relieved from the cares of office, and a special meeting was called to choose his successor. Dea. William Brown was the choice of the society, and he held the post for five years, when, in September, 1836, Dr. A. H. Ramsay was chosen. He held the office with great acceptance for five years. He was again chosen treasurer in 1858, and held the office until 1885, when a special meeting was again necessary to elect his successor, on account of his death. William Taggard Piper was then chosen, and he is the present occupant of the office. Thus there have been but few treasurers during the life of the society. The thirty-two years of service of Mr. Ramsay is a record that it would be difficult to match in Cambridge. The present officers are: president, Francis J. Child; secretary, Arthur Gilman; treasurer, William Taggard Piper. Mr. Gilman has bee
