l Boylston Street, and leading across to what we call Allston. There was no other bridge until the one from East Cambridge to Charlestown was finished in 1786, soon to be followed by West Boston Bridge in 1793, which wrought a great change in the facing of Cambridge toward Boston. Throughout the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries the true river front of Cambridge was at the Great Bridge. The filling in of Back Bay, the westward expansion of Boston, and the completion of Harvard Bridge in 1890, have been steps toward restoring the ancient frontage. The first Meeting-House stood on the southwest corner of Dunster and Mount Auburn streets. It was soon found too small and flimsy, and in 1650 a better one was built at the southwest corner of the College Yard, nearly on the site of Dane Hall. From 1650 to 1833 that spot was occupied by the Meeting-House of the First Parish. The space between the sites of Church and Garden streets was inclosed as a graveyard or God's Acre in 1636.

Two of the number were born in Cambridge, and five were Boston boys. Sixteen were born under town-meeting rule, and received their first impressions of community government in that way, while
nt the work of Boston, and to provide open spaces for the larger Boston, in favoring the appropriation of the shores of the river to park uses. The new bridge, fittingly named from the college to which its connecting avenue leads, was finished in 1890, but, awaiting the settlement of a question of crossing the location of the Grand Junction Railroad, was not opened to public use until 1891. After the opening of the bridge and its avenue, renewed progress was made under this encouragement, withidge; and the Cambridge Wharf Company was organized. Beyond the purchase of a tract along the river front and the conception of a plan of improvement, this company did little, and finally released its entire holdings to an individual purchaser in 1890. A second corporation was created by the legislature in 1861, under the name of the East Cambridge Land Company, to attempt the work of reclamation in the territory covered by its predecessor. A large district covering some seventy-five acres, l

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 point. It finds the college str
gree, from the first, but Mr. Reid was in poor health and died January 4, 1847, and the Chronicle passed into the possession of Mr. John Ford, in February of that year. In January, 1855, the office was removed to the corner of Main and Temple streets, and in 1858 Mr. George Fisher purchased the Chronicle and conducted it until 1873, when he sold the property to Mr. Linn Boyd Porter, under whose charge it remained until 1886, when it was purchased by Mr. F. Stanhope Hill. Four years later, in 1890, Mr. Hill bought the Tribune and sold the Chronicle to Mr. F. H. Buffum, but the property returned to Mr. Hill in 1891, and he then sold it to the present proprietors, J. W. Bean and C. B. Seagrave, who have since added a job printing establishment to the plant and made it a prosperous business enterprise at 753 Main Street. In April, 1866, Mr. James Cox, a practical printer in Boston, established the Cambridge Press, at first as an independent paper, although the publisher was then identi
w church. This parish now numbers about four thousand. The New St. John's Parish, Rindge Avenue. The rapid increase of the congregation of St. Peter's church had again made that structure too small at the time Father Flatley was appointed to be its pastor, and soon after taking charge of the parish, he began to interest his people to secure additional facilities for worship. A lot was purchased upon Rindge Avenue of sufficient size for a church and convent school, and in the summer of 1890 work was begun upon the chapel and school building. The chapel was completed in February, 1892, and has a seating capacity of eight hundred. Father Flatley continued to attend to the religious needs of the congregation until the district was set off and a parish created on January 1, 1893, when the Rev. John B. Halloran was appointed its pastor. He still remains in charge, and has one assistant, Rev. Michael Welch. All that part of Cambridge which lies north of the main line of the Fitc
East and Christian Union In October, 1875, Mr. W. G. Clapp began missionary work in the easterly part of Cambridgeport, and established the next year a Sunday-school, which gradually increased. In order to build a suitable hall for the enlarging work, a fair was held in 1888, and about $2000 was raised. The present corporation was formed in 1889. Mr. John H. Walker became superintendent of the Sunday-school in 1890. The building was erected in 1891 at a cost of about $4000, and is free from debt. In September, 1892, it was decided that the Union should be kept open day and evening, and that a superintendent should be employed to devote his whole time to the work at the building and in the neighborhood. Mr. Walker was secured to fill this position, and the result has been a steady increase of the usefulness of the Union. In January, 1896, a gymnasium, bath-room, and workshop were established in the adjacent building. The Union building is located on Brewery Street, in Cam
institutions everywhere,—and it still remains the largest of the five now in existence. Of these, Putnam Lodge, of East Cambridge, numbering now 159 members according to the report of August 31, 1895, was chartered in 1854; Mount Olivet Lodge was chartered in 1863, and reports 151 members; Mizpah was chartered in 1868, and has 180 members; Charity Lodge, dating from 1870, has 101 members. The Cambridge Royal Arch Chapter was chartered in 1864, and Cambridge Commandery of Knights Templar in 1890. Freemasonry in Cambridge owes much to Rev. Lucius R. Paige, who has had an interesting Masonic history. As the natural result of early elections and of a very long life (Dr. Paige is now in his ninety-fifth year), he is the senior Past Master of Masons in Massachusetts, the senior Past Commander of Knights Templar in the State and probably in the United States. It is eminently fitting that any memorial of Freemasonry in Cambridge should contain affectionate tribute to one who championed
hose organized for social purposes, the most unique, perhaps, is the colonial Club, which combines both town and gown; for the professor in the university and the business man of the city are included in its membership. This club was organized in 1890 by J. J. Myers (its promoter), Charles W. Eliot, Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Henry H. Gilmore, Alvin F. Sortwell, J. G. Thorp, Chester W. Kingsley, Henry P. Walcott, William A. Munroe, Charles J. Mclntire, Daniel U. Chamberlin, Edmund Reardon, andwell as for ladies, assembly hall, bedrooms, billiard-rooms, and bowling-alleys. The membership of the club is about four hundred, and comprises a most representative array of men. Its past presidents include Colonel Thomas Wentworth Higginson, 1890-93, and Charles W. Eliot, 1893-95. Its present secretary and treasurer have served continuously since the first organization. The purpose of the club is not merely to provide the usual place for reading-rooms and social intercourse, but to bring
