Massachusetts Agf[icultural College. 



YOUNG men desiring to secure a good, practical education at 
the least cost of time and money, will find that the liberality 
of the United States, of the Commonwealth, and of numer- 
ous friends of learning, has enabled the Massachusetts Agricul- 
tural College to ofter exceptional advantages. 

The course of study has been carefully revised by the Trustees 
and Faculty, with the purpose of giving to the student such a 
training as will enable him to succeed in the practical woi'k of 
life ; the aim being to discipline brain and hand, fitting the whole 
man for his sphere of usefulness, whether it be found in agricul- 
ture, in the arts and sciences, or in the learned professions. 
While books are not neglected, things themselves are studied and 
mastered as they are found in nature and in life. 

A thorough course of industrial training is secured by means 
of the various laboratories, and opportunities for manual labor 
afforded by the different departments of the garden and of the 
farm. Valuable discipline is acquired by the military drill that is 
given under the personal direction of a resident officer of the 
United States Army, specially detailed for the purpose. 

The completion of the new South College provides ample lec- 
ture-rooms for instruction, and pleasant apartments for students. 

The new and complete offices, laboi^atories, stables and other 
buildings of the Experiment Station, so liberally endowed by the 
State, under the direction of Prof. Goessman, v\^ho is assisted by 
an able corps of chemists, enable students to familiarize them- 
selves with the latest discoveries in agriculture. 

The new Stone Chapel affords a suitable place for worship^ 
and for the meetings of the Young Men's Christian Union, that 
character as well as skill may be developed. 

The College is located in the midst of the most beautiful 
part of the Connecticut Valley, in a region easy of access, famed 
for its many educational institutions. 

A large number of free scholarships are provided by the 
State, and opportunities for self-help are offered to such as are 
glad to accept them. 

Catalogues and additional information may be obtained by 
application to the President.

THE four pleasant years of our college life, so full of unique and 
never-to-be-forgotten experiences, are rapidly gliding away, and the 
finger of time now designates the Class of '88 as the one destined 
to give to the Avorld the eighteenth volume of the "Index" of the 
Massachusetts Agricultural College. We do not claim great literary 
excellence for our book ; but it is our hope that its perusal may give 
entertainment to those into whose hands it may fall. 

Since the publication of the pi-evious edition of the "Index," the 
group of divinities entrusted with the care of the College has been con- 
sidei-ably rearranged. At the close of the summer term of '86, President 
Greenough tendered to the Trustees his resignation from the service 
of the College. His place is occupied by Professor Goodell, who is 
meeting the needs of the institution with excellent judgment. 

Major Alvord, formerly connected with this institution as instructor 
in military science and tactics, now fills the chair vacated at the close 
of last year by Dr. Miles. Mr. Alvord is vigorously at work making 
many and necessary changes in the stock and equipments of the farm, 
and in the cultivation of the land. A new and capacious corn-crib has 
been erected dii-ectly west of, and in contact with, the farm barn. The 
large tract of swamp land in the valley west of the "campus" has been 
drained and bi-ought into a tillable condition, and the assortment of live 
stock has been much improved by the elimination of the poorer animals 
and the purchase of better. The College has been presented with a 
valuable Jersey bull, "Edithson" (8948), by Mr. Lawson Valentine, of 
Houghton Farm, New York. "Edithson" was sired by " Ramapo," fourth 
son of "Eurotas" (2454). " Eurotas" gave 778 pounds of butter in eleven 
months. The dam of "Edithson" was "Lass Edith," which gave six- 
teen pounds and fifteen ounces of butter in seven days. A fine young 



JX£>E.\. 

Guernsey bull was a ijift iVoni Mr. Mkkri am. of WcstDU. The laiul, 
implements, etc., of the (arm have been carefully inventoried. 

Professor Alvurd is endeavoring to give us a comprehensive ami 
intelligent course in agriculture; but this subject is one which can be 
but poorly and incompletely mastered in the class-room, where we spend 
so much of our time in the weighing of theories and the adoption of 
conclusions. The Massachusetts Agricultural College cannot make a 
farmer of a man, — nor can any other college, — but it can give him a 
liberal, yet scientific and practical education, by virtue of which he may 
become a successful farmer in after years, and an honor to the commu- 
nity. Still, it must be that many who graduate from this College shall 
not become farmers. 

The Horticultural Department has completed another successful year 
under the careful supervision and direction of Professor Mayx.xrd. The 
ortice of foreman is held by Mr. Green, a graduate of the College, in 
place of Mr. Kingm.\n. who recently accepted another position. One 
of the latest acquisitions of this department is a young alligator, which 
revels among the gold-fish in the aquatic room of the plant-house. 

We are glad that the professor of Zoiilogy and some of the kindred 
sciences is now a regularly-installed member of the Faculty, instead ot 
a visitor from some other college, as he formerly has been. The insti- 
tution has been so fortunate as to secure the services of Professor 1"'i:r- 
NALD. late of the Maine State College, at Orono, as instructor in these 
branches of science. We hope that the cabinets of natural specimens 
belonging to the Massachusetts Agrii'iiltural College, which were so 
seriously disarranged at the burning of the old South Dormitory, will 
soon be rearranged in their proper form. 

The Cadets, under the supervision of Lieutenant Sacjk. are pursu- 
ing the usual course of study and drill. There are but two comjianies 
in the battalion as organized this year. The mortar drills have been 
rcndereti the mf)re interesting because the Cadets have had o]>]>orluiiity 
to use the mortars in actual practice, throwing the shells down' into the 
pastures west of the retioubt. New butts have been constructed at the 
rifle range, aiul the facilities for target |iractice are excelK'iit. 

I'nder the direction of Professor Wkli.incjto.n, the old Laboratory 
hat. been remodeled, so that very perfect opportunity is oflered the stu- 
•lentH for individual, jiractical work. 



INDEX. 



The new Experiment Station Iniilding has been occupied for some 
time bj Professor Goessman and his assistants. The plot of land east 
of the station has been broken in and underdrained. 

Professor Warner has piloted us through the mazes of Trigonom- 
etry and Civil Engineering, and has brought us to a state of equilib- 
rium in the midst of our course in Mechanics. The study of Calculus, 
Avhich comes in the Senior year, has been made optional, and several 
other changes have been made in the College curriculum. 

Dr. Walker, formerly at South Amherst, is a welcome addition to 
the Faculty, assuming, at the commencement of the year, the office of 
Instructor in Rhetoric and Psychology. Dr. Walker also occupies the 
pulpit on the Sabbath. 

Our students are considerably interested in Athletics, and would be 
more so if the College would expend the necessary few hundred dollars 
in the equipment of a gymnasium in the drill-hall or elsewhere. It 
seems as if this boon ought not to be denied the students. The foot- 
ball team has done fair work this fall, winning each of the two match 
games plaj'ed. 

We welcome the Class of '90 as one of the largest that has entered 
college for several years. Let our young friends realize at the begin- 
ning of their course what they are here for ; and may they improve to 
the fullest extent the opportunities which shall develop for them while 
they are here. The four years spent in college, form one of the most 
cogent formative periods of a man's life, and one may often attribute 
his successes in later life, — or his failure,— to habits contracted while he 
sojourned among the halls of his Alma Mater. 

Classmates: Having added our due to the line of "Indexes," we 
fall back into our places to plod onward toward our graduation day. If 
the book pleases you, we are satisfied; if not, let it become a forgotten 
thing of the past, without too harsh comment. At all events, we wash 
the ink from our fingers, and thank our stars that the trial is over.

DKJNIFIKl) Seniors :it last I Our green Freshman, bold anil rock- 
less Sophomore, and la/y Junior stages are past. 

As we look over the vears that are gone, we see that numer- 
ous changes have taken place in the circumstances of the College. 
The old buildings have been replaced by new and better ones. Mem- 
bers of the Faculty have come and gone. The different departments 
have been more fully equipped. Each move has been but a step on- 
ward. Never in the history of the College has the future looked so 
promising. Now, as the sun beams brightly above the horizon, it is 
our lot, classmates, to bid these pleasant scenes adieu forever. 

In looking back and regretting, let us not forget to look forward 
and hope. As we cast from our shoulders the mantle of college life, 
let the noble seed that has been implanted in us never lack for nourish- 
ment. To us is given the task of so caring for it that it may hrin<^ forth 
thirty, sixty, or an hundred-fold. 

We have now but found how to study. We have only laid the 
foundation for work. While we may see where golden opportunities 
have been lost, we should use such losses as guides on our future path. 
The best day is when we pass out of society's praises into its uses. 
Then should we each ask. Am I going into the world to serve or be 
served by it.' " Idleness is the devil's workshop." May not one of us 
be an inmate. Nothing is truer than Hood's lines: — 

" Evil is wrought for want of tliought, 
As well as want of heart." 

As we bid good-bye to our friends, let us cherish many pleasant 
reminiscences. Mav, thev assist us wiien in the \aried walks of life, in 
attaining the highest in whatever we undertake. A high ideal is use- 
IcRR, however, imlcss there is high endeavor. Dr. Anuikr wisely re- 
marked to us, "Young gentlemen, if anything turns up to you, you've 
got to turn it up." You must build your ladder from the earth to the 
vaulted hkicH, and must mount it round by round. v.

'88 



ANOTHER interesting period of our college life has become a feature 
of the past, and a new one has been ushered in. Before the spell 
(if its intlucnce be broken, and our recollections of it become some- 
what clouded, we will endeavor to give to the public a brief history of the 
incidents that have marked its progress. 

During the winter term our mathematical talent was employed in 
assisting Prof. W,\rner to verify his work on mensuration, a fact which 
ought greatly to facilitate its reception into general favor. In connection 
with our course in civil engineering, we sur\ eyed boundless fields, ascer- 
tained the heights of distant mountains, raised imaginary embankments, 
made corresponding excavations, and learned the art of laying drains and 
sewers. 

Our brief but comprehensive study of physiology, so awakened us to 
a knowledge of ourselves, and so impressed us with the thought of the 
possibilities attainable to the human mind, that the latent forces which, it 
had been surmised might perhaps exist in some of our physiological units. 
became actual, and have since developed so rapidly that we no longer fear 
the power of the oppressor. 

Some of us had the privilege of trying for the Clark Prize, oflcred to 
the one who should pass the best competitive examination upon the subject. 
Although but one could come oft' victorious, still we feel that the experi- 
ence gained and the benefits received fully compensate us for all our 
trouble. 

While on the excursion to the Bay State Fair in Boston, we, in com- 
pany with Prof. Fernald, visited Harvard College, with the intention of 
inspecting the Agassiz Museum, where we saw much that was of interest 
to UK in connection with our study of zoology. Some of us also availed 
ourselves of the opportunity, presented through the kindness of Prof. 
Maynari), to visit some of the extensive market gardens in Arlington, a 
trip by which we gained much useful information. 



INDEX. 

We have lost but one man since our last communication, leaving us 
twenty for our Junior year. 

'88 has entered zealously into athletic sports the past season, as the 
foot-ball records will show. If, unlike our immediate predecessors, we do 
not figure prominently as stockholders in some grand " South Sea Bubble," 
the failure is not due to a poverty of energy and public spirit, but to the 
fact that we believe in counting the cost before building the tower. 

Classmates, our work at present is associated with the College, and is for 
its interest and our own ; but we should so strive that when, in after years, 
we look back upon the portion of our lives passed here, we can say that the 
discipline then received was not in vain. Remember that each day brings 
new and more arduous duties, which require prompt attention. Our 
college life, at best, will soon be over, and we shall no longer enjoy our 
present advantages. How essential, then, that we improve each moment 
while it is passing. H. ■

'89 



OUR first summer vacation has ended, and the class of '89 has returned 
to College to commence her Sophomore year full of zeal and energy 
and ready for hard work; and we now take pleasure in sending to the 
" Index" our second communication. 

The first era of our college life has passed, and will be remembered by 
us as a period full of enjoyment, and one by which we have been much 
benefited, and which has proven to our college mates that we are an indus- 
trious class. 

We have made excellent progress in our studies, devoting much of our 
valuable time last year to the studies of botany and agriculture, in the last 
of which we have made astonishing progress (.'). 

Our declamations have been noted ^as (scarcely) marvels of oratorical 
power, and two of our number expect to astonish the natives next June. 

In class sports and games we have often left the "campus" bearing 
the flag of victory, and have taught the Juniors that we are expert base- 
ball players, and the Freshmen that we are not deficient in foot ball. 

Our first class-supper took place on the eventful evening of June 10, 
1886, and you may be sure we did ample justice to la viande before us. 
The affair was decided a complete success, and we now look forward to the 
time when we shall next assemble for a similar gustatory achievement. 

We have taken much interest in the Freshies, and having announced 
to them one dark night a meeting of the " Owl Club," we proceeded to 
initiate several of them into the mysteries of that order. 

The past, with its victories and defeats, has gone from us like a dream, 
and let us not revert to it except to draw from the experience it has fur- 
nished, guidance for our conduct in the future. is.

'OO 



IN accordance with the time-honored custom of Freshman historians we 
begin bj complimenting the editors of the " Index," and deprecating 

our own contribution, pleading, as an excuse for its crudity, our ex- 
treme youth and inexperience. 

Our class has entered upon its course of studj strong in numbers. 
Two men have already signified their intention of graduating with '89, and 
are now reciting with that class. Nevertheless we have thirty-three re- 
maining, with prospects of additions to that number in the future. 

In athletics we have not been backward in coming forward. When we 
first came to " Aggie," while yet we were strangers to one another, we de- 
feated the organized band of Sophomores in the annual cane-rush. While 
we conformed to the custom, we failed to recognize its utility. In the tug- 
of-war, too, our gallant team completely outpulled the crack wire-pullers of 
the Sophs. 

In the foot-ball game we were vanquished by the Sophomores, not be- 
cause they were heavier or more muscular than we, but rather on account 
of a slight superiority given them by the experience which a year of col- 
lege life gives. However, in our game with the high-school team, our 
eleven came out victorious by a handsome score. Rumors of " Owl Club " 
and hazing have so far proven rumors only. As for the epithets, " Fresh " 
and " green," we have heard them only from the lips of Sophomores. Is 
not this fact significant.? 

As a class, '90 has been, hitherto, orderly and law-abiding, and the 
members have shown their determination to be distinguished as students, 
rather than as ruffians. 

As the crafty Ulysses and the youthful Telemachus were dependent in 
so great a degree upon Mentor, so the Freshmen are helped and advised by 
the Juniors. 

'88 has not been remiss in her duty to us, and to the class as a whole, 
and to the captain in particular, we owe much of the success which has 
.attended us. 



INDEX. 

Classmates, we have just entered upon the first of our four years of 
college life. We are apt to think of four years, in anticipation, as a long 
time, but it will pass quickly, and as we look back upon it hereafter, we- 
shall Avonder at the rapidity with which it has gone. Let us, then, take ad- 
vantage of every opportunity which comes in our way, so that in future 
years we may have no occasion to look back with regret upon any misdeed,. 
or any time misspent, or any opportunity neglected. 

We have all made good resolutions for our college course. May we 
have the strength of purpose necessary for carrying out these resolutions. 
May we so improve our time while in college that when we graduate we 
may become honest men and useful citizens. G.

SHORTLY after the return of the students of the M. A. C. to College, 
at the commencement of the fall term of '86, it began to be rumored 
about that the entire corps was to go to Boston to attend, at the invi- 
tation of the Bay State Agricultural Society, the first of a series of 
exhibitions to be given by that society annually. Facts continued to be 
scarce in regard to the matter, till, one morning not long before the fair 
was to be opened, the President made a formal announcement to the effect 
that we were to go to Boston, and that we should take a certain train on the 
morning of the 5th of October. On the evening following this announce- 
ment, the students held a mass meeting to discuss the question of apparel 
to be worn by the men. Some said that as military science was an impor- 
tant branch of study here, it seemed well to wear the uniform. Others said 
that as this was an agricultural college, we had better put some hayseed in 
our hair, and wear ovei-alls and cowhide boots. The majority did not seem 
to favor either proposition, so a compromise was effected and the students 
decided to go clad in the ordinary habiliments of the peaceful citizen. 

The morning of the 5th found us all at the depot, ready to take the 
-early express (.?) on the N. L. N. R. R., for the ride to Palmer. The train 



INDEX. 



was only fifteen minutes late, so we were satisfied; and after waiting for 
two people to come from Pelham to take a ride, we started off at a break- 
neck speed, running as much as twenty-one miles an hour, in order to make 
up for lost time. The engine was seriously fatigued by the unusual strain, 
but hopes are entertained of its ultimate recovery. After a ride of less 
than one hour we arrived at Palmer, where we disembarked, to await the 
coming of the Boston train. Soon we heard a voice announce the arrival 
of the accommodation, throughout the length of Avhich we were soon scat- 
tered. The passage to Boston was uneventful, and for the most part quiet, 
although a few fellows in the last car indulged in a little singing for the edi- 
fication of the other passengers. We announced our arrival at Woi'cester, 
by whispering to each other our college yell in stentorian tones. 

■ As soon as the train stopped at Columbus Avenue we all alighted, and 
proceeded to make a systematic search for the armory of the Boston Cadets, 
where we were to have our headquarters during our stay in the city. At 
last some one struck the right trail, the wandering ones were recalled, and 
the procession wended its weary way to the building. There we found a 
large hall — partially occupied by about eighty cot beds — where were to 
repose the tired forms of the students when darkness, overcast the earth 
and the electric lights were blown out. Valises, overcoats, etc., were 
deposited in places of safety, and the crowd departed to assault a neigh- 
boring restaurant, where each imbibed that sustenance for which he had 
been longing since morning. 

At 3 p. M. the battalion re-assembled at the armory for the purpose of 
receiving instructions from the authorities, and that each cadet might be 
given the ticket with which to deadhead his way into the exhibition build- 
ing. Then the corps was dismissed with the injunction that each individ- 
ual should take good care of himself — not stay out late, etc. — and turn tip 
promptly at nine o'clock the next morning. Before the battalion left Am- 
herst, each cadet had been given a schedule of duties, to be performed each 
day at stated hours. 

At nine o'clock the next day the duties of the day commenced, and the va- 
rious classes, under the guidance and paternal care of the several professors, 
examined with great interest and open mouth the various divisions of the 
exhibition. The fruit department was especially attractive, — the (sour) 
grapes and things there located awakening a wish in the minds of some of 
the fellows that the juicy products of nature were in a place as remote from 
civilization as the vineyard on the hill at M. A. C, or that the darkness of 
night might enshroud them for a few moments from the gaze of the observ- 
ing multitude. A band of wind-jammers strained sweet music from the tor- 
tuous mazes of their instruments at one end of this hall. 

■ When the day's work was over, most of the students started down town. 
In the evening many of them took in the theater, where they had a real 
lovely time, you know. It is to be hoped that they did not go out between 



INDEX. 



the acts to see a man, but it would beer nimpossibility to say whether they 
did or not. Some visited the dime museums, where thej gazed with aston- 
ishment upon the objects and objections on exhibition. Many wandered 
about the streets, dazzled by the glare of the electric light, till called to their 
senses by the echoing of the midnight chimes through the squares and by- 
ways of the city. Then, with a nice perception of locality, they set out in ex- 
actly the wrong direction to find the barracks, and continued wandering till 
informed of their error by some lucky circumstance. Once at the barracks, 
they proceeded to retire for a quiet night's rest. But alas ! it could not be 
had. No sooner had the tired cadet begun to doze, when down upon his 
phiz came the pillow of his neighbor with a dull "cickinn" thud. This 
treatment naturally aroused his belligerency, and for the next few minutes 
there is a white mist of pillows, feathers, bedclothes, etc., obscuring that 
portion of the hall. Finally quiet is restored, — the referee declares the set- 
to a draw and pockets the stakes, — whereupon the whole community in- 
dulges in a free difterence of opinion. That ceases, and all is, for a time, 
so quiet that you might hear a cannon-ball drop. Then some one essays 
to sing: instantly the sound is smothered, as its owner is buried under a 
mattress. Soon one of the beds gets up on its white wings and commences 
to walk off to a remote corner of the hall. A careful inspection reveals the 
presence (underneath the bed) of a pair of legs, presumably the motive 
power. The engineer of this apparatus evidently designs to find quieter 
quarters. And so the circus continues till morning, when the cadets rise 
refreshed from their dreamless slumbers, ready to commence the work of 
the day. 

This sort of thing continues to the end of the story. The return trip 
to Amherst is a repetition of the other ride, except that it is a little more 
vociferous, so to speak. The next day the routine of college duties recom- 
mences, and the students compose themselves for work during the rest of 
the term. The afl'air is voted a success, and the hope is expressed that a 
similar one may occur some time in the not-too-distant future.

THE time once was when the possession of a college diploma secured 
for its owner a position which aftorded a livelihood ; hut that time 
has passed. The world no longer asks of a young man, Where did 
you graduate? but simply, What can you do? Nor is the world 
satisfied with a mere verbal reply to this query — it demands deeds, not 
words. What are you? What have you done? These are the questions 
which must be answered satisfactorily by any young man before he can be 
trusted with affaii-s of importance. 

The university has its place as an institution for the increase of the 
world's stock of knowledge ; but for the practical purposes of life knowl- 
edge must net be the end, but the instrument. Without attempting to 
rival the universities, or even the classical colleges, the trustees and faculty 
of the Massachusetts Agricultural College have endeavored to i-evise the 
course of study so that at a moderate expense of time and money the 
young men of the State, who choose to avail themselves of the opportu- 
nity, may secure a practical education that will fit them for efficient service 
in their own sphere of life. 

The one object aimed at is to give the student the mastery of himself 
and of his environment. The principle is that he should study things 
themselves, rather than descriptions of things found on the printed page 
or sketched by the hand of the artist. The things of which knowledge is 
sought at first hand are the mineral, the vegetable, and the animal king- 
doms, natural forces, and the laws which control them. The earth itself 
is studied — its rocks, its physical features, its soils, its pastures and forests, 
its fields and gardens, — studied by means of the student's own senses, not 
by committing to memory what some one else has learned, or imagined 
that he has learned, and has written^^in a book. He uses his own eyes, 
ears, and hands. In the same way he studies the plants that grow up out 
of the ground before his eyes — plants that he himself has raised from the 
seed in field, and garden, and hot-house. He knows the plant from germ- 
cell to fruit, for he has himself seen it with his own eyes. Thus does he 



INDEX. 



study animal life from the insect to the leader of the herd. He knows the 
animals which are man's allies, and those forms of life which are the 
enemy of human endeavor. 

Then for himself does he gain familiarity with the physical forces 
which dominate the world. Heat, light, electricity, gravitation, chemical 
affinity, display themselves daily before his eyes, trained to scientific 
observation, and are made daily subject to his personal will. He knows 
how to master these, and he knows also how these servants, if they are 
defied, crush with omnipotent power and remorseless energy any one who 
ignores their true nature. He learns constantly by experience that the 
laws of nature and material things are so rela.ted that those relations may 
be expressed in mathematical formulie. To retain and utilize his discov- 
eries he studies mathematics, and records what he has learned. 

To make the best use of his knowledge, he finds that he must commu- 
nicate it to others ; so he draws a picture of the insect, the flower, or the 
house, and that he may do it well, he studies drawing. But the picture 
needs explanation, so he learns to write, good, plain English; and that he 
may do it thoroughly, he studies rhetoric. But he finds that his ideas, if 
they are new, are disputed; he therefore practices debating, so that he 
may dare stand up befoi-e men and defend his opinions. To do this well 
he studies English literature to see how other men have expressed their 
ideas. He finds a knowledge of words necessary; he studies Latin and 
French enough to comprehend, and so fix the more tenaciously in mind 
that large vocabulary of English words, scientific and technical, that come 
to us from the Latin and through the French. 

But the more he learns of things in this manner, the more does he 
become conscious of his power over nature. He finds himself not a mere 
atom of the universe, but an individual person, capable of knowing and 
controlling nature. But can he control himself.^ Why are his fingei's stiff 
and his eyes weak, and his ears dull.? Why does his brain refuse to work, 
and his stomach rebel.? Here military drill, and the study of physiology 
and psychology help him. Four years in uniform do wonders for the boy 
of fifteen or sixteen. The discipline straightens his shoulders, expands 
his chest, gives him a manly bearing, and teaches practically two very 
important lessons, attention and obedience, thus fitting him to be a leader 
and commander of men. Physiology teaches him how to take care of his 
body, and psychology how to understand, develop, and use to the best 
advantage his own mind. Thus does he grow in self-knowledge and self- 
mastery, and so does he fit himself to be master of circumstances and 
master of men. 

But there are in this world such things as trade and politics, both of 
which have much to do with material things and the individual man : 
hence to succeed the student needs to know something of political econ- 
omy and of constitutional history, that he may adjust himself to the social 



INDEX. 



system as well as to the physical system. This knowledge is gained dur- 
ing Senior year. 

Finally, there is a sphere of morals as well as of nature. The moral 
law is a factor — a very essential factor — that must be considered in its 
relation to natural law, if success is to be assured. This age demands not 
only smart men, but honest ones — men who can be depended on in a 
crisis to resist bribery, dishonor, injustice; to remain faithful unto death, 
whether his hand be on the lever of the locomotive, the wheel of the 
steamship, or the helm of State. It is not improper, therefore, that the 
best book of morals should be read daily in the room adjoining the chem- 
ical laboratory, and that the gospel should be preached in the library 
building, which is at the same time the chapel, whose spire points heaven- 
ward from the midst of gardens, fertile fields, and a smiling landscape.

Dedicated with all Respect to the Alumni. 



THERE was a farmer had two sons, 
The legs of each were bandy ; 
Josephus' hair was raven black, 
Bohunkus', somewhat sandy. 

Now these two boys they went to school. 

As all good little boys do ; 
Josephus' favorite dish was mush, 

Bohunkus', oyster stew. 

Now these two boys to " Aggie " came, 
As might have been expected; 

Josephus' forte was English Lit., 
Bohunkus', Trig, selected. 

Now these two boys as Freshmen Avere 

Too fresh for one to tell ; 
Josephus, he was treated rough, 

Bohunkus not so well. 

Now these two boys in Sophomore year 
Were rough and rude and haughty ; 

Josephus hazed the Freshmen some, 
Bohunkus, too, was naughty. 

Now these two boys as Juniors were 

Far famed as 'cycle riders ; 
Josephus let his moustache grow, 

Bohunkus raised some siders. 



INDEX. 



Now these two boys at last attained 

A Senior's envied station ; 
Josephus' theme was '' Eggs and Cheese, 

Bohunkus', " Education." 

Now these two boys, as is supposed, 

Had good success in life; 
Josephus was a bachelor, 

Bohunkus had no wife. 

Now these two boys they died right old. 
Their love of good was real ; 

Josephus lived an upright life, 
Bohunkus, he shunned Sheol.

CHAETONOTUS LARUS EHR., magnified 750 diameters. I, as seen from above; 
2, as seen upon the side, without the side spines. 



yNohc^ 012 SI^aehoDoha^* lai^a^' ^^ 



SOME years ago I made a careful study of the microscopic forms occur- 
ring in the fresh-water streams, ponds, and other sources of water- 
supply in and about Orono, Me. Among the animals observed was 
Chaetofiotus larus EJir., which occurred in considerable abundance, 
and which appears to be equally abundant in the streams and ponds about 
Amherst. 

The descriptions and figures of this animal, given by Ehrenberg, Dujar- 
din, and in the Micrographic Dictionary, are superficial and unsatisfactory. 
To gain a more complete insight into the structure of this animal, I spent 
soine time in the study of its anatomy and habits. 

Chactonotus larus is very common in the fine debris over the bot- 
tom of ponds, streams, and springs, as well as in decomposing vegetable 
matters in watering-troughs and in cisterns which have no filters. I have 
found it at all seasons of the year, even in midwinter, in springs which are 
frozen over. 



46. 



INDEX. 



These animals are about one two hundred and twentj-fifth of an inch 
long, oblong, rounded above, somewhat enlarged posteriorly, and armed 
on their upper surface with spines curving backward, those on the posterior 
part being the largest. The under surface is flat, and without spines, but 
with four longitudinal bands of cilia. Upon the head are four colorless 
eyes, or what appear to be eyes, and also four clusters of long, fine hairs 
starting out near the eyes, but a little below them. These appear to be 
tactile organs, as they keep them in constant motion, apparently feeling 
around as they move about slowly among the debris. The posterior end 
of the animal is bifid, ending in two tapering caudal appendages, which 
are quite flexible, each being composed of two segments, and with the tips 
slightly expanded into a disk. 

In the basal portion of each caudal appendage is a gland, with a duct 
leading from it, and opening at the end of the appendage in the center of 
the disk. From the movements of the animal I conclude that the disk 
serves as a sucker, and also that the secretion from this gland is adhesive 
in its nature; for, except when swimming, they stick the caudal append- 
ages to any convenient object and hold themselves in place, or swing them- 
selves to one side or the other, as they may desire. 

The mouth opens on the under side, close to the anterior part of the 
body, through a more or less hardened ring, and the oesophagus passes 
up vertically about one third of the distance from the mouth to the top of 
the head, where it turns sharply up and back at an angle of about 45° for 
about the same distance, when it turns again and runs horizontally toward 
the posterior end for about one third the length of the animal, when it 
expands into an oesophageal bulb. This opens into a straight intestine, 
which runs through to the anus between the caudal appendages. The 
oesophagus is surrounded by a thick, dense, muscular tissue of circular 
fibers, and the intestine is surrounded by a layer of large nucleated cells, 
outside of which is another layer of much smaller ones, which are more 
difficult to make out. Directly above the oesophagus is a globular bpdy or 
cavity, but I cannot conjecture what its functions are. 

In the median line, above the intestine, is situated the ovary, in which 
is developed but one ^g^, at a time. This Q^g is very large as compared 
with the size of the animal itself. The nucleus is plainly- visible even 
before the discharge of the egg from the ovary. The oviduct is easily 
traced to the outlet immediately above the anus. 

I have watched the development of the eggs many times ; and the 
young, when nearly ready to hatch, are of the same form and structure as 
the adult, but doubled up within the shell. I have also seen all sizes, from 
those just hatched up to the adult ; and though for want of assistance I have 
never been able to trace the entire development of one individual through, 
I have no doubt that these animals are never parasitic, and that they do not 
pass through any alternation of generations. 



INDEX. 



It is exceedingly curious and interesting to see, under the microscope, 
with what facility thej' use the caudal appendages, — sticking them to the 
glass slide or cover in such a manner that, by careful focusing, one can see 
the sucker-like action of the tips of these organs while they sway about one 
way and the other in the Avater. At the same time the bands of cilia on the 
under side are in constant motion causing a current of water to pass along 
by the mouth, bringing their food in suspension, which they readily secure. 
Suddenly they let go from the slide, and the action of the cilia causes them 
to move rapidly through the water till they reach some new feeding-ground, 
where they again anchor themselves and fish for another meal. If a rotifer, 
or any other moving body, happens to touch even the very extremities of 
the tactile hairs on their heads, they instantly retreat, and shoot off in some 
other direction. 

To enable me to make out the digestive tract more clearly, I fed some 
on very finely powdered indigo and others on carmine ; but it was not a 
success, for they do not take to that sort of food kindly. I saw only one 
Chaetonotus take in a particle of the indigo, which readily and quickly 
passed along the oesophagus to the bulb, when it at once appeared to be- 
come conscious of having eaten some nauseating substance. It at once let 
go its hold with the caudal appendages, the action of the cilia ceased, and 
the Chaetonotus gradually doubled up a little, and then Avith a spasmodic 
effort it attempted to throw up the particle of indigo. A reverse peristaltic 
action of the muscles of the oesophagus took place, which was plainly visi- 
ble, sending the particle up about two thirds of the distance to the mouth, 
when the action ceased, and the indigo gradually went back into the bulb. 
This was repeated several times, after which all action ceased, and the ani- 
mal died Avithout a further struggle. 

For the purpose of making a more cai-eful study Avith higher poAvers of 
the microscope than I could use Avhile they Avere moving about so actively, 
I put a little cyanide of potash under the edge of the cover, and this, quickly 
dissolving and diffusing through the water on the slide, very soon killed 
them, and I was then able to make a more critical examination of their 
structure. 

Although these animals abound in the ponds from Avhich Ave obtain 
our water supply, we need have no hesitation infusing it, since the above 
studies show that these singular-looking animals are not parasitic at any 
stage of their existence, and can do no possible harm.

LISTEN, my children, and you shall hear 
Of the midnight raid, so strange and queer, 
Devised, projected, and carried through 
By the Freshman class, and the Juniors, too. 
On one dark night in the spring of last year. 

Professor Warner had often explained. 

By lips or chalk, from his rostrum stained, 

With his hand aloft on the noble front 

Of a massive brow, with many a grunt, 

Once, if sufficient, or twice if need be, 

X and Y being given, how to find Z, 

To the Freshman class that to Amherst came doAvn 

From every Bay State village and town, 

Attracted thither by Aggie's renown. 

So, for petty reasons and childish causes. 
Fired by a love of Juniors' applauses. 
All this class, with perhaps an exception. 
Spurred on by the Juniors' art and deception. 
Accepted a plan of a Juniors' conception. 
Designed to bother, to tease, and to vex 
(Fearless of faculty, fearless of Prex) 
Him who instructs us in friction and statics, 
And all other branches of mathematics. 

A listener, but he remains incog., 

Concealed by the darkness, and shielded by fog, 

By chance returning from rambles nocturnal, 

Saw them execute the plot infernal ; 

And for reasons well known and specific. 

Delivered the details to your poet prolific. 

As gathering darkness closed over the earth, 
Sounds are heard as of suppressed mirth ; 
Each Freshman hies him straight to his room, 
And lights from the windows through darkness loom. 



INDEX. 



Botany and algebra seem heavy as lead, 

And thoughts of them straightway he thrusts from 

his head, 
And at half-past eight betakes him to bed : 
He betakes him to bed, but not to dream, 
For his thoughts are fixed on his daring scheme; 
And the possible punishment, too, is a theme 
Which anon through his head all unheeded may gleam. 

Thus he waits and listens with eager ears, 
Until, in the silence around him, he hears 
The signal on which agreement was made 
For undertaking the nocturnal raid. 
They muster their men at the chapel door. 
Some in rubber-boots, in " sneakers " more. 
And, with stealthy tread, the young recruits 
Enter the hallway as still as mutes. 
They pass the door of the chapel room. 
And, in the fearful darkness and gloom, 
By the wooden stairs, with stealthy tread. 
They climb to the lecture-room overhead. 
They startle the mice from their nightly feast 
Of" crumbs of learning," and from the beasts 
Start back, as if from shades of Profs, deceased. 
Each frightened Freshman feels increased 
The stiffness of his locks well greased; 
Nor is their terror ought decreased. 
Till one, a skeptic as to ghosts, 
Exclaims, " 'Tis but mice, or rats, at most ! " 

Then straightway they began the work ; 

Though many wished to, none dared shirk. 

Now there are in ProPs room, as each one knows. 

Of desks and chairs a half-dozen rows, 

Each fastened by screws to the wooden floor. 

Each desk by eight, each chair by four. 

With screw-driver, case-knife, the "ear" of a pail, 

With chisel and hoop-iron, and e'en with thumb-nail, 

Each well-tightened screw they seek to pull out. 

And toss them carelessly round about. 

And if, by chance, a screw is capricious. 

Refusing to yield to Freshman malicious, 

He seizes the desk, and with haste expeditious, 

Either pulls the screws from out of the floor, 

Or, as happened in one case, if not more. 



INDEX. 



The cast-iron standards are broken asunder, 
And Freshie surveys, in well-feigned wonder. 
What he afterward called a " confounded blunder! " 

The gloom of night o'erspread the land, 

So thick that one could not see his hand 

Before his face. With such tools as I have told, 

And hands benumbed by chill and cold. 

So that they them could scarcely hold, 

In such darkness as of old 

The gnomes were said to Aveld and mould 

Silver ingots and bars of gold. 

The Freshmen labor. But these are not so bold 

As to dare a lantern to unfold. 

And when the seats are torn from the floor. 

Each Freshman seizes one or more, 

And bears them down the wooden stairs 

As quickly and speedily as he dares ; 

For caution, you know, is one of the cares 

Which every rioter in his mind bears. 

They then divide, and take their departure 

Toward hash-house, vineyard, ravine, and pasture : 

The temple, the campus, and the sorghum-mill, 

And every conceivable place they fill. 

From the placid Thames to Rubicon's rill. 

No hedge, no ditch, no apple-tree, 

But has its desk, or two, or three; 

No stump, no hole, no woodchuck's lair, 

But has at least a single chair; 

And, by thorn, or limb, or splinter barred. 

Full many a desk was rudely marred, 

And night's dampness caused to tarnish 

The brilliant surface of the varnish. 

The task is done, the work complete. 

And every Freshman deems it meet 

To retire to bed, his head replete 

With dire forebodings as to his feat. 

'Twas twelve by Eighty-Seven's clock. 

Whose glaring blackness seems to mock 

The passer-by from out its tower of rock, 

As the band of Freshman vandals 

Began this greatest of college scandals. 

Long ere the gang had accomplished its deed, 

Morning's second hour on the watch-face they read. 



INDEX. 



You know the rest — you've heard the tale : 

The Sophs and Seniors jeer and rail ; 

The Freshmen groan without avail; 

The Juniors their proteges bewail ; 

For soon as comes the morning light, 

Unearthed is the prank of the preceding night; 

And, without delay, the powers that be, 

Cause to be collected from hill and lea 

The scattered furniture. And soon 

The mechanics come, and by noon 

All is adjusted as before, — 

The Freshmen forced Prof. Warner's door. 

The Faculty meet, Prex Jim in the chair. 

Ye gods ! What words were spoken there ! 
' An outrage !" " Shameful !" " How did they dare } ' 

Prof. Warner says, " I don't care ; 

The injury to me I can easily bear." 

But the rest of the Faculty all declare, 
' The authors of this deed we cannot spare; 

For forty dollars we'll call it square. 

And if this fine they will not pay 

By a certain hour of a certain day 

(Which day and hour we will soon say), 

Then, forsooth, shall their course be ended, — 

Or at least the ringleaders shall be suspended." 

The chagrined Freshmen to the sentence listen. 

And salt, briny tears in many an eye glisten. 

In solemn conclave then they meet. 

To see if they cannot beat 

Down the Facultjs — in fact 

A generous compromise eftect. 

With this end an embassy they send, 

Hoping that Prex his ear will lend 

If half the sum demanded 

To him with penitence be handed. 

But in vain ! The authorities stand firm ; 

'Tis vain for the Freshmen to squeal and squirm. 

The " horrid Juniors " they roundly cuss 

For getting them into such a fuss : 

And ever since they paid that fine. 

No class has been steadier than '89.

PKESJDENT OF THE AMERICAN POMOL OCh ■ 
i-'Rrr^iiiPMT np TMR Mh-M-RNr,r,AND HISTORIC OtJNEAL, 



IN MEMORIAM. 



MARSHALL P. WILDER. 



Resolved, That in the death of Marshall P. Wilder, this Board of 
Trustees has met with an irreparable loss, — the loss of a man who gave 
himself and his means readily, heartily and continuously to the great in- 
terests of elevating agricultural labor to be the peer of professional labor 
in the most pronounced departments of human industry; a man who 
sought to secure for the people interested in agriculture the highest 
intellectual training, and to so dignify the labor of the husbandman as to 
make it attractive to the largest minds by a development not only of its 
kinship to the highest qualities of man's nature, but by illustrating its 
immense scope in making necessary gleanings from the entire field of 
science as essential to a perfect, practical and economic working of the 
relation of the man to the soil, and that he has erected an imperishable 
monument in books, in shrubs and flowers, in trees, and in institutions 
for the benefit and elevation of his fellows, written and wrought by his 
own mind and hand. 

Resolved, That in Marshall P. Wilder we recognize the first Amer- 
ican advocate of the Agricultural College, and that by his public and 
private efforts the foundation was laid which culminated in the National 
act which, under the leadership of Hon. Justin S. Morrill, brought forth 
by national legislation the Agricultural College as it now exists in the 
several States of the Union. 

Resolved, That added to his great devotion to the cause of agricul- 
tural knowledge and intellectual and practical development, we recognize 
in him, under all circumstances, whether of triumph or temporary defeat, 
the earnest statesman, and the true-hearted, generous man who never 
failed to so recognize humanity, that side by side on the same broad 
platform of citizenship and manhood, the humblest laborer was elevated 
and made an equal as he listened in the field or the lecture-room to his 
words of counsel and judgment. 

Resolved, That we feel that no language of ours can express the 
great loss we feel in his demise, and that we tender our heartfelt sympa- 
thy to his bereaved family. 

Resoh>ed, That a copy of these resolutions be sent to the family of 
the deceased, and inscinbed upon the records of the Trustees of the 
College. 



IN MEMORIAM. 



WILLIAM KNOWLTON. 



Resolved, That in the death of William Knowlton, the Trustees have 
lost a most efficient worker, and the College a friend who was always 
ready with his voice and means to contribute to its welfare and develop- 
ment. 

Resolved, That in the hearty and cordial support continuously given 
by our departed associate, we recognize a man who, hampered by disease, 
and suflFering for many years with excessive pain, triumphed over his great 
physical disabilities in a manly resignation of his public obligations to the 
sacrifice of his personal ease. 

Resolved, That we mourn his loss, and direct the Secretary to for- 
ward a copy of these resolutions to the family of the deceased, and insert 
the same in the records.

H. E. MESSENGER, Prop. 



)0 Bay State Fair, held in Boston, October 5th to 9th, was the 

largest of its class ever held in this country. The only butter 

that scored 100 points, and was marked by Prof. H. E. Alvord, 

Superintendent of the Dairy Department, " PERFECTION," was made 

by the COOLEY PROCESS, by Alfred Rodman, Dedham, Mass., 

whose butter brings eighty cents per pound in the Boston market. 

The Creamerj' or Factory Tub Butter scoring the most points, viz., 97, 
was made by the Shelburne Falls (Mass.) Co-Operative Creamery. 

The Creamery Butter scoring the second number of points, viz., 96, 
was made by the Windsor (Conn.) Co-Operative Creamei-y. Both of these 
factories are conducted on the Cooley Process of Cream Gathering. 

The Judges were Prof. L. B. Arnold, than whom there is no greater 
dairy authority in this country or Europe, and Mr. Edward Norton, the 
oldest and most experienced creamery manager in New England. 

We submit these facts to intelligent dairymen, and invite their closest 
scrutiny; also to the following facts, viz., that 

THE Cooley Creamers 



AND THEIR PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN AWARDED 

SEVEN GOLD MEDALS AND EIGHTEEN SILVER MEDALS. 




©HEY are used by the leading dairy- 
men of this Country and Europe ; among 
them, T. G. Yeomans, Walworth, N. Y., 
Pres't of the Holstein-Friesian Breed- 
ers' Association; T. B. Wales, Jr., Sec'y 
of same Association, Iowa City, Iowa; 
Dr. F.W, Patterson, Pres't of the Dutch- 
Friesian Cattle Association before its 
consolidation with the Holstein Associa- 
tion; F. L. Houghton, Putney, Vt., pro- 
prietor of the oldest Holstein herd in 
America ; F. Bronson, Greenfield Hill, 
Conn., Pres't of the American Jersey 
Cattle Club; T. J. Hand, Sing Sing, N. 
Y., Sec'y of the American Jersey Cattle 
Club; and over FORTY-FIVE THOU- 
SAND OTHERS. 

They make more butter of 
better quality than any other 
apparatus.

FOR 

DYSPEPSIA, 

MENTAL AND PHYSICAL EXHAUSTION, NERVOUSNESS, 
DIMINISHED VITALITY, ETC. 



Prepared according to the directions of Prof. E. N. Horsford, of Cambridge. 



A preparation of the Phosphates of Lime, Magnesia, Potash and Iron 
with Phosphoric Acid in such form as to be readily assimilated by the 
system. 

Universally recommended and prescribed by physicians of all schools. 
Its action will harmonize with such stimulants as are necessary to take. 
It is the best tonic known , furnishing sustenance to both brain and body. 
It makes a delicious drink with water and sugar only. 



As a Brain and ?(erve Tonic, 

Dr. E. W. Robertson, Cleveland, O., says : " From my experience, can 
cordially recommend it as a brain and nerve tonic, especially in nervous 
debility, nervous dyspepsia, etc., etc." 

For iVakefulness. 

. Dr. William P. Clothier, Buffalo, N. Y., says : " I prescribed it for a 
Catholic priest, who was a hard student, for wakefulness, extreme nervous- 
ness, etc., and he reports it has been of great benefit to him." 

In :Kervous Debility. 

Dr. Edwin F. Vose, Portland, Me., says: "I have prescribed it for 
many of the various forms of nervous debility, and it has never failed to 
do good." 

For the 111 Hffects of Tobacco. 

Dr. C. A. Fernald, Boston, says: "I have used it in cases of im- 
paired nerve function, with beneficial results, especially in cases where the 
system is affected by the toxic action of tobacco."
