er-mother of authors. And yet one hazards a doubt if the enlargement of the university, and the specializing of its functions, is not less favorable to pure literature than was the old-time college, with its high regard for humane scholarship. At any rate, as we note the two most eminent American men of letters connected with Harvard, it is difficult not to feel that they belonged rather with the old college than with the new university. Still, the present is never in true perspective, and 1896 may yet read as interestingly as 1836, when Longfellow came to Cambridge, or 1855, when Lowell took service in the college. No town or city can ever be barren in the world of literature which has two such names as these on its roll of honor, and can hold within its bounds two such shrines as Craigie House and Elmwood. There is indeed a double wealth of association about Craigie House which so heaps up the memory of patriot and of poet as to make each contribute to the other's fame. The spa

he university. About three thousand students, out of the thirty-six hundred now in the university, live in Cambridge. In the long vacation nearly six hundred other students come for the numerous summer courses. More than one hundred of the teachers and other officers of the university occupy houses in Cambridge and maintain households therein. There are from one hundred and seventy-five to two hundred unmarried officers who live in or near the university. On the Catalogue of the year 1895-96, two hundred and fifty students give Cambridge as their home address. Every year a considerable number of families move to Cambridge in order to educate their children at the university. Many families that originally came to Cambridge, either to educate their children, or because the bread-winner became a university teacher, have remained in Cambridge. Some of the most famous houses in Cambridge to-day are houses built for or occupied by professors of a former generation. It is enough to m

Moreover, the univeruld 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 mgree conferred upon graduates of the school is that of Doctor of Dental Medicine. The number of students in the school in 1896 is one hundred and two. The Faculty and other instructors number thirty-nine. The School of Veterinary Medicine, whichnumber of its students has steadily grown, until in 1895 five hundred and seventy-five were registered. For the summer of 1896 the school offers at Harvard College and the Lawrence Scientific School courses in English, German, French, Mathematics, E
signed 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 of time when the efforts i
, been asking (demanding might be a better word) that girls should of right be admitted to equal privileges in the venerable university; but, though they did not know it, they demanded a revolution, and revolutions are more frequent in political affairs than in affairs educational. Sturdy demands fell unheeded at the closed doors of the university. It was left for milder methods to win success. Parental solicitude showed the way. See Cambridge Sketches by Cambridge Authors, Cambridge, 1896, p. 183. A mother and a father were discussing the education of a daughter for whom it seemed to them that the ordinary curriculum of the schools for girls did not provide enough advanced work. The study of their particular problem led them to believe that they would accomplish what they wanted for their own child by making provision for the children of others. Thus it was that they formed a plan for giving parallel courses of instruction outside of Harvard College by the professors, which
Agassiz, and all the girls whose parents could afford it were anxious to join the school. Of course, the great attraction was Agassiz. . . . The girls' parents often came with them, and sat down in the schoolroom to listen to the lectures, which were so clear and so entertaining that every one followed with the greatest attention the subjects brought up by their great teacher, however difficult they might be. Life, Letters, and Works of Louis Agassiz, by Jules Marcou. New York and London, 1896, II. pp. 60, 61. Mrs. Agassiz says that Mr. Agassiz never had an audience more responsive than the sixty or seventy girls who gathered every day at the close of the morning to hear his daily lecture; nor did he ever give to any audience lectures more carefully prepared, more comprehensive in their range of subjects, more lofty in their tone of thought. . . . It was the simplicity and clearness of his method that made them so interesting to his young listeners. What I wish for you, he wo

When the charter was granted in 1846, there existed but one Catholic church, and this had been erected less than four years, and seated only about six hundred people. There were then fourteen Protestant churches, two of which had been founded as far back as 1636. In the present year of 1896 there are seven Catholic and forty-two Protestant churches and chapels, and the Catholic population numbers about thirty-five thousand. Few of all these people can trace their lineage in this country further back than two or three generations, yet all are numbered among the most ardent lovers of our country and its institutions. The proportion of Catholic soldiers from Cambridge in the late war much exceeded their ratio of the population. Our Catholic citizens have lived together with th
be employed by the city, men who had not been naturalized were almost the only ones who worked here. The employment provided enabled them to earn something for themselves and their families, and prevented their receiving alms. This enterprise was conducted in cooperation with the Citizens' Relief Committee and the Overseers of the Poor, and though, as was expected, it did not succeed financially, it accomplished its purpose industrially. It was decided to provide, during the winter of 1895-96, a work test in order to discriminate among those who said that they were looking for work, and an opportunity for unskilled labor was furnished at the City Sewer Yard. About one half of those sent to the yard have done the stint marked out, and have received in payment a substantial meal. In order that persons who ask for food and lodging in the evening might be referred to some place where they could be cared for if in real need, the central office has been open during the winter from ei
