hese lands, effectually closed them from advantageous connection with Boston. With the aid of the authorities of the municipality, this barrier was, however, about to be removed, when the disastrous financial panic following the initiation of this enterprise, which paralyzed all energies, effectually put an end to the efforts of this company. A short section of stone wall on the river front, ragged from neglect, remained as a forlorn monument of the fallen fortunes of this enterprise until 1889, when a citizen of Boston, convinced of the possibilities of these barren lands, situated as they were in the heart of a great community, and within a trifling distance of the commercial centres of his city, acquired nearly fifty acres of this territory, including the entire water front, half a mile in length, lying between the canal and either bridge. The effort to recover this land was at once renewed, and this time with effect. First Street was at once filled, from its terminus at Binn

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 Radcliffe College. Our record closes as the third stage in the history of Radcliffe opens. It is an interesting po
. The course of study is for three years. Of the 1159 pupils graduated in June, 1894, ten per cent. completed this course in less than three years, fifty-eight per cent. in three years, and thirty-two per cent. in more than three years. Regular instruction in botany has recently been introduced; also the Ling system of Swedish gymnastics. For eleven years Mrs. Quincy A. Shaw of Boston maintained three free kindergartens in Cambridge. A fourth was supported by a few Cambridge ladies. In 1889 the school committee assumed them as a part of the public school system and since that time have gradually added to their number until today there are eight kindergartens with 417 pupils and sixteen teachers. The city employs several special teachers. Mr. Frederick E. Chapman is director of music and Mr. James M. Stone director of drawing. There are also teachers of botany, gymnastics, and sewing. The city maintains one evening high school, four evening elementary schools, and one eve
ry. 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 experience. The teachers have generally been Harvard men, and the most interested patrons have been Harvar
dent thought and research, and at the same time to cultivate a taste for good literature. The total yearly circulation, since the opening of the new building in 1889, has increased from about eighty thousand to nearly one hundred and forty thousand volumes. This does not include the use of the reference library in the reading-oom, the library has had many valuable gifts in money and books from Cambridge people. In 1873 it received a thousand dollars by the will of Mr. Isaac Fay, and in 1889 two thousand dollars by that of Mr. Daniel P. Cummings. In 1889 also a fund of about nine thousand dollars for its increase was raised by a citizens' subscription1889 also a fund of about nine thousand dollars for its increase was raised by a citizens' subscription. Among the more important gifts of books may be mentioned about five hundred volumes, chiefly historical, from Mr. Denman W. Ross; more than two thousand volumes (with a collection of paintings, engravings, photographs, medals, coins, etc.) from the estate of Mrs. Anna L. Moering; the rare and valuable medical library of Dr. Mor
organized in 1842. Its first house of worship was on Prospect Street. In 1867 the new church on Massachusetts Avenue was opened. St. James's Parish, in North Cambridge, was organized in 1866. A mission of the Protestant Episcopal Church had been sustained in that part of the city for eighteen months, under the charge of the Rev. Andrew Croswell. He was followed by Rev. W. H. Fultz and Rev. T. S. Tyng. In 1878 Rev. Edward Abbott took charge of the parish, and has remained its rector. In 1889 a fine stone church was completed. The parish has enjoyed an increasing prosperity in its enlarged work. There are other Episcopal churches in different parts of the city. The Episcopal Theological School was incorporated in 1867. This is described elsewhere. In other parts of the city Episcopal services are sustained. A few years since a Reformed Episcopal Church was established in Cambridgeport. Following now the chronological order, early in the century, the Port, as it was termed
by the founder, Mr. Reed. Four years after, Mr. John Appleton Burnham built Burnham Hall, the refectory. In 1893 Winthrop Hall was built by friends of the school, and was named after the Hon. Robert C. Winthrop, who until his death was president of the board of trustees of the school. The Deanery was given to the school by Mrs. Gray, after the death of Dean Gray. The first dean was the Rev. Dr. John S. Stone, who served the school from 1867 to 1876. Dean Gray followed him, from 1876 to 1889. The next dean was Dr. William Lawrence, now Bishop of Massachusetts. He was succeeded, upon his election as bishop, by the present dean, Dr. George Hodges. Of the professors, Dr. Allen and Dr. Steenstra have been with the school since the beginning; and Dr. Nash, Dr. Kellner, and Mr. Drown were educated at the school. Dr. Wharton and Dr. Mulford, past professors, are remembered by writings which still live. The graduates of the school, numbering about two hundred, are at work in more
The New-Church Theological School. Rev. Theodore F. Wright, Ph. D. This institution was first suggested at the convention of the New-Jerusalem Church in 1866. Up to that time the ministry had been supplied almost wholly by accessions from other religious bodies, but it was then found that young men were growing up with a desire to be thoroughly prepared in a distinctive school. Beginning with a summer class, and going on very modestly without a place of its own until 1889, the school then took its present position. The commodious residence of the late President Sparks was first purchased, and to this the Greenough estate was added two years later. The grounds thus extend along Quincy Street from Cambridge to Kirkland streets, and room is afforded for new buildings. The first of these will undoubtedly be a chapel. Services have been held in the lower rooms of the Sparks house, and the congregation is, for its size, an active one, assisting in all work for the moral welfare
d in the system of friendly visiting, so far as the comparatively small number of visitors will permit. The society was incorporated January 16, 1883, and the late Dr. A. P. Peabody was chosen president. He was succeeded by Mr. J. B. Warner in October, 1884, and by Rev. E. H. Hall in 1891; after Mr. Hall's resignation, Rev. Dr. Edward Abbott was elected president, and now holds the office. Mr. William Taggard Piper succeeded Dr. Emerton as secretary in March, 1882, and he was followed in 1889 by Mr. Arthur E. Jones, the present secretary. Dr. Vaughan performed invaluable service as director until his departure for California, in 1895; and Mr. John Graham Brooks has made his special knowledge in the field of organized charity and social questions of great advantage in the enlargement of the work now being effected. In March, 1883, Mr. J. Watson Harris was appointed paid agent of the society with especial reference to the needs of the Cambridgeport conference; after more than
