INDEX 



—^ Editorial ^^- — 

IN presenting this, the nineetenth vohmie of the Index, to our friends, we 
take our first lesson in journalism. Inexperience is the excuse we offer 

for our errors. We would remind our readers that the class we repre- 
sent is few in numbers, and that this is an agricultural, not a classical col- 
lege. Then do not expect from us a production of high literary character, 
and without rhetorical faults, but rather take into consideration the circum- 
stances under which we labor, and then judge fairly of the result. 

In regard to the history of the College during the past year, we will say 
little. It has in the main been prosperous. A few of the leading events 
are chronicled elsewhere; others, of an unpleasant character, are passed by 
as blots upon this page of its history. There has been no change in the 
faculty during the past year. Some reforms are earnestly desired bv the 
students, and we hope that ere long these wishes will be gratified. 

We have attempted to prepare a book from which you will not turn 
away at the first glance, and we shall feel abundantly repaid for our efforts 
if you, gentle reader, will condescend to scan its pages, though it be only "to 
cast it aside. 

We have tried to get out of the old ruts, and in our efforts to do so, 
may have hit wide of the mark. The former system of fencing in each page 
has been abolished, as savoring tcro^:miich of the red line editions of poems. 
In the matter of ink, we have adopted the college color, which we trust will 
be an agreeable change. 

In endeavoring to publish our Index in good season, we perhaps have 
failed in some things which might have been bettered had we taken the 
whole winter in which to arrange our thoughts and collect our material. But 
we cherish the hope that its quality will not be below the standard estab- 
lished by our predecessors, and that the Index of the class of '89 will be 
judged worthy of preservation. 

And now, kind readers, as we offer for ^"our consideration this Index. 
we \vould ask you to be merciful in your judgment, just in your criticism, 
and charitable withal.

IS INDEX. 



— ^ '88 ^ — 

OUR class needs no introduction to the readers of the " Index," for al- 
ready we have given them three articles in its columns, and hence, as 
we are about to make our fourth and also our last contribution, we feel 
that we are to bid farewell to old friends. Taking it for granted, therefore, 
that th^y feel an interest in our- welfare, we take pleasure in furnishing such 
information regarding our affairs as time and circumstances will permit. 

Our number is somewhat smaller than that with which we had hoped to 
greet ourf riends, since for reasons as yet beyond our comprehension, we 
have been deprived of two of our members. One new man, however, has 
joined us, so that now we cherish the hope of graduating nineteen strong. 

Since entering college, we have advanced steadily on the up grade, our 
abundant supply of sand precluding all possibihty of slipping wheels. Our 
constant aim has been to work together, and it is for this reason that so 
many of our enterprises have been crowned with success. Our interest in 
athletic sports has never been dormant, but rather has constantly increased 
in strength, until now we feel justified in claiming that '88 contributes its 
full share financially and otherwise, towards the support of the college teams. 

As to our intellectual abilit}', we have not much to say, but we can assure 
you that an hour spent with us in the discussion of psychological questions 
would convince you that we possess wonderful faculties for original thought 
and illustration. This same spirit of originality is often prevalent in the 
laboratory, else how can the fact be accounted for, that a student should test 
for phosphoric acid in an "aqua regia '' solution of a common cricket, or 
attempt to dissolve the contents of chestnut shells in boihng water? Our 
studies in Natural History lia\e been very interesting and instructive, 
prompting us to say. that in the re-estal)lishment of this chair, we think that 
the college has and will receive decided benefit. Opportunities are now 
provided for study and investigation in tlie various departments of this 
science, and with the explicit lectures, the well-filled cabinets for consulta- 
tion and the necessary apjjaratus for experiments, there is no good reason 
whv one mav not become well-versed in this branch of knowledtre.

0\vin<( to v;irious causfs, our course in Agriculture has been somewhat 
cursory and broi<en, but we are looking iorward to a ])leasant and profitable 
consideration of the subject of dairy farming during the coming winter. 

But enough has been said concerning our work, and we now turn to more 
general topics. During our stay in college there have been several changes 
in the administration, but through them all it has rode safely, and now its 
prospects are brighter than e\'er before. We realize how much greater are 
the advantages now given to the man entering college than were those of 
the past, and sometimes we are beset with the desire to live our college days 
over again. But that is impossible ; our life-work lies before us and is 
beckoning us on ; there is no time to lose in going back, for the great rush 
of the world waits for no one; if we do not keep our places in the ranks, 
others will fill them for us ; let us press boldly on, then, doing faithfullv 
whatever we undertake, and feeling" confident, that, so long as we strive with 
such motives in view, our efforts will not be in vain. H.

'89 ^ — 

TWO vears of our college life have passed awa}-, and with this term's 
duties we enter upon a new era in student life. For with Junior year 
come new experiences and new responsibilities which are fully realized 
only when we reach this welcome period. Our journey hither has been 
quickly and pleasantly accomplished, and as we proceed on the latter half of 
our course, our only regret is that not quite all are with us now who started 
under the banner of '89. Yet we bid the missing ones a hearty " God speed " 
in the paths where destiny leads them, and hope that others will come to fill 
their vacant places. 

'87 in departing has taken from us many esteemed college mates. We 
feel deeply the loss of our colleagues, but hope for their highest success in 
whatever course they may pursue. What they were to us, from the time 
when first we trod Aggie's domains, till their graduation, we will endeavor 
to be in the fullest degree to our fresh colleagues ; and the new class appears 
worthy of our friendship. Thougli small in number we hope the " quantity " 
will be made up by " qualitw" We hope and trust they will grow in all that 
improves and cultivates the man. that when our class shall quit its Alma 
Mater, thev may make its absence less apparent. 

One-half our college course is completed. We have entered at last the 
petted Junior year, the prominent feature" of which is " ease." Alas ! 
Believe it not, ye young aspirants for Junior prerogatives. It is but a fable, 
a thing of the past, and exists only in song or as a myth. We spend our 
fast fleeting moments in thvimbing the leaves of a " Genung " or puzzling out 
the intricate formulae of Crystallography. 

We have sui"veyed various parts of the farm, and obtained with due 
mathematical correctness the heights of the various college buildings. No, 
■ambitious Freshman or daring Sophomore need now undertake the further 
decoration of any of the above buildings without a knowledge of the extent 
of the task before him. We have tested grapes and strawberries under the 
head of practical horticulture. These with some things of minor importance, 
such as beating '88 in base-ball, occupy our time. 



22 INDEX. 

And now classmates, as we are entering on the last half of our four 
years, given as a tinal preparation for life's battle, it becomes us to settle 
down to sterner work, to fix upon something as an object that we may 
finally go forth armed with that knowledge which, when aided by persever- 
ance, will lead us to success in whatever we undertake. By so doing, we 
shall be well prepared to act our part in after life, and the future of our 
class will be such that our Alma Mater \vill be proud to call us her children.

— ^ '90 ^ — 

E have started on another year of our college course, hoping it will be 
even more of a success than that of last year, as there is still room 
for improvement. 

It does not seem possible that the first year of our course could pass 
away so quickly, but as our time is fullv taken up with studies and college 
games, we do not realize how time flies. It appears but a few months ago 
that we were taking our entrance examinations. 

As to the games, some of us think that there is little need of our pres- 
ence, for there will be enough wdio understand them without our aid. But if 
all should think thus there would be no one to carry them on. 

After a student has attended recitations all the morning, he should take 
some physical exercise before applying hjmself to study in the evening. 
By so doing he can grasp the ideas put forth in his different studies more 
easily. A student needs physical as well as mental training to keep his 
constitution from breaking down, for if this is injured he cannot be of much 
use in the world. 

We hope that in base-ball, next spring, each one will endeavor to make 
it his duty to be present and take his share of the responsibihty in getting 
together a strong team. 

In foot-ball we can see that some one has been pushing things, and we 
find as a result a very good team, considering our short experience; but for 
all this, we cannot overcome all obstacles at once, and we can accomplish 
much only by our perseverance. 

We were victorious in our foot-ball game, but in the tug-of-war luck 
was against vis. 

We took no inconsiderable part in subduing the Hames which threat- 
ened to destroy one of the college buildings this past fall. 

The usual cane rushes were abandoned this year for lack of "silica" 
on the part of the Freshman class. 

We. invite them to "come again'" at some more favorable opportunity 
after they have become fully " oxidized " to the ways of the college. G.

INDEX. 29 



— e '91^ — . 

WE are fully conscious of our inexperience in writing an article which 
will come before the eyes of so many, but by the request of the 
editors of the Index the following is submitted to your criticism. 

Although but few in number compared with former classes, we are 
proud to say that we passed the best entrance examinations of any class 
entering, and hope that in our future college duties we will do as well. 

Many of the class have entered well into sports, and we trust that the 
class of '91 will do its share in promoting the interest in athletics, and be 
as well developed in body as in mind. 

The Sophomores, having the experience of a former rope-pull, and the 
excellent training which comes from long and hard practice, were so confi- 
dent of "dragging the Freshmen around the campus," as a Sophomore was 
heard to say they would do, that a rope more expensive than usual was 
ordered, they expecting the Freshmen would have to pay for it ; but, as it 
proved, the dragging was all done on the other side, and amid the cheers of 
'91 and '89 the rope was carried off by us. 

As Freshmen we have not had the drill which the Sophomores have, 
and consequent!}- are not so proficient in military duties, especially that of 
stacking (rooms), but having learned that exercise from them, we did our 
best to follow the example set. 

We enter on our college hfe as the beginning of the final j^reparation 
for our life-work, not knowing what our future will be ; we feel as if all our 
energies ought to be put forth to develop that which is noble and good 
within us. As we have the eyes of our parents and friends fixed upon us 
we should do our best to come up to the standard which they ha\-e set, and 
may our work here be a success, so that we can say as we look back in after 
life on our college course, that our time and labor was profitably spent. 

May each one have that degree of confidence in himself so that when 
difficulties arise, as the}' often do, he will work the more earnestly and over- 
come them, graduating with the realizing sense that by his own exertions 
he has obtained the reward which comes from hard and faithful studv. G.

— ^i^ A Good Fellow ^^-^- 

HAPPY is the college class that numbers among its members a real good 
fellow. No two classes are alike. It is said that the last class that 
graduates is always the best till the next one comes upon the stage. 
But, flattery aside, classes differ in ability and in other characteristics the 
same as individuals. They are dull or bright, famous or of ill repute, jollv 
or morose, as circumstances and natural development combine to make them. 

The character of the class is largely due to the influence of a few of its 
leading spirits who create the esprit du corps. If these men are studious 
the class ranks high in scholarship ; if they are mischievous, the class is a 
torment to faculty and town: if they are fond of athletic sports, the college 
makes a record in base-ball. 

Now whoever controls the leading spirits of the leading class, controls 
the college. If his voice is for war and commotion dire, there is no j^eace ; 
if it be raised in behalf of discipline and good order, heaven's tirst law is the 
law of student life. 

As sunshine brings light, so true is it that a real good fellow is the 
leader of the choice spirits of his class, and so is an uncrowned king. He 
is no politician, he pulls no wires, but where he goes the rest go. He 
demands nothing, he wants nothing for himself, but all the boys are deter- 
mined that the man who has plotted and schemed to get the phim, shall not 
have it, but that the real good fellow who does not want it shall have it in 
spite of all his protestations. 

Good fellowship is like the flavor of rare old wine ; it is something that 
improves with age but which no skill can counterfeit. The genuine is 
recognized by all; imitations cheat no one. We forget it may be in the 
course of years who took the valedictory, but no old alumnus when he 
returns to Alma Mater to the fiftieth reunion of his class, ever forgets that 
real good fellow whose genial mirth and cordial ways were ever the inspira- 
tion of the enthusiasm of all the boys. 

Good fellowship is the outgrowth of a good heart. It comes of sympa- 
thy and enthusiasm. It is born of self forgetfulness. He is not a martyr, 
for the martyr is always self-conscious. The good fellow becomes so 
absorbed in making the other fellows have a good time that he never stops 
to think whether he is getting left or not. Since he never has time or incli- 
nation to take care of himself, it comes to pass that every other fellow in the 
class appoints himself a committee of one to see to it that he is well takfen 
care of. 



32 " INDEX. 

Good fellowship is such a glorious characteristic that we love the man 
who possesses it, even though he is his own worst enemy. It is not the 
dissipation nor the folly of the good fellow that we love. We lament his 
errors, but in spite of his sins and wickedness, we join the good Father in 
loving the prodigal more than we respect his elder brother whose cruel heart 
made his rehgion of no effect. 

But is it not too bad that in this world any good fellow should come to 
grief.'' There is no need of it. There is many a good fellow who has taken 
the prizes in college and out of it. The culture of the heart may go on side 
by side with the development of the body, of the will, and of the intellect. 
It is this many-sided culture that makes a royal good fellow. 

There are many advantages of a college education, but of them all, none 
is of more worth than the privilege of spending four years in class-room and 
field in intimate association with a royal good fellow whose genial manners 
and hearty ways, whose enthusiasm and zeal, whose unflinching earnestness 
and true friendship, whose' real ability and genuine manliness excite the ad- 
miration of youth, and inspire the young soul with visions of the possibilities 
of achievement, and the determined resolve to make the most of one's 
highest self. 

Wise trustees, an able president, a learned faculty, the mechanism and 
government of the institution, a good base-ball ground, and a lawn tennis 
court, are all of value to the modern college, but nothing after all is of more 
real worth than that each and every class should have at least one real good 
fellow whose character shall give inspiration and hfe to all his mates.

— ^^ The Library ^^ — 

IN a preliminary report made by President Chadbourne, before the open- 
ing of the college, we find these words : "The very liberal offers made 
by Amherst College in regard to the use of its library, give the students 
of the Agricultural College advantages which they could not have for many 
years from the institution itself." It was confiidentlv expected that these 
advantages would prove adec^uate for the needs of the students. But it was 
soon found that practical difficulties lay in the way. Distance from town 
and the interruption of afternoon duties, prevented attendance during hbrary 
liours, and it was felt that a library nearer home must be secured. 

With characteristic energy, Colonel Clark set himself to the task of 
securing donations of books. By his personal efforts during the first three 
years, gifts of over 600 volumes were made, besides $150 in money. Promi-' 
nent among the donors were Albert Fearing of Boston, Allen W. Dodge of 
Hamilton, H. K. Oliver of Salem, and Samuel Batchelder of Cambridge, 
whose gifts in the respective departments of horticulture, agriculture, api- 
culture, and the arts, formed the nucleus of the valuable collections of to-day. 
These books were placed in the reading-room of old South College, under 
the care of a student, but no attempt was made at classification, and no 
catalogue was prepared. 

The income from the fund generously provided by the Messrs. Hills of 
Amherst, for the maintenance of the botanical department, now became 
available, and from time to time, books pertaining to the studies of that 
dej)artment were added by purchase. Still the library increased but slowly. 
The woi'ks were mostly of a technical character and did not interest the 
general reader. The two societies, the Washington Irving, and the Edward 
Everett, were meanwhile endeavoring to supply tliis deficiency and liad 
started libraries of their own. In 1875, a "Catalogue of the libraries of the 
Massachusetts Agricultural College, and its literary societies " was prepared, 
the former numbering 1,099 volumes, including its duplicates, and the latter 
about 600. No attempt was made, however, to increase its efficiency till the

Alumni took hold of the matter in 1883, appointinj;- a committee to solicit 
funds and purchase books. On tlie accession of President Greenough. an 
appeal to the legislature was made for suitable accommodations, resulting in 
the erection of the present building. Pending its completion, the library 
was moved to the reading-room in North College, thoroughly examined, 
classified, and catalogued. |t was found then to contain 2.471 volumes. 
Leander Wetherell of Boston, presented 1,410 bound volumes, the societies 
gave what they had accumulated, and the generous subscriptions of Alumni 
permitted large purchases of new books. Tlie stimulus given to reading by 
providing fresh, interesting material in each department, was as marked as it 
was gratifying. The part taken by the Alumni is particularly worthy of 
mention. They subscribed $3,137.60. Of this amount in round numbers, 
$700.00 has been added to the permanent fund of the library. $1,900.00 has 
been expended in the purchase of 1,547 books, and the remainder has not 
yet been collected. For the future maintenance of the library, a perma- 
nent fund has been started, now amounting" to $4,721.36. 

The hbrary to-dav numbers 6.334 volumes, distributed as follows : 



Philosophy, . 


• 63 


The Useful Arts, . 


2,780 


Theology, 


. 158

As might be expected, the department of horticulture (including botany) 
and agriculture are best supplied, the former numbering 1,000 volumes, the 
latter 1,411. This, however, does not represent as large an amount of 
material as would be supposed, man}- of the works being in sets of twenty 
or thirty volumes, thus agriculture with its 1,411 volumes, numbers but 454 
distinct titles. 

The libraries of literature and history are especially deficient, and the 
empty shelves in the departments of zoology, chemistry, and geology, are a 
standing appeal to some warm hearted alumnus to loosen the strings of his 
purse and "transmute the sordid gold into the heaven-born thoughts of men.'"

— ^^ Guess-work on the Farm ^ — 

IN these days of sharp competition, narrow margins of profit, close calcu- 
lation, and the application of mathematical accuracy to the conduct of 
almost all human occupations, it is astonishing that the business of 
farming is still often carried on in such a loose way. In many cases it is 
very largely guess-work. 

Every merchant and manufacturer knows that to escape bankruptcy he 
must closely observe business principles, and must atJeast keep accounts, 
simple, perhaps, but complete and accurate. A good many farmers, on the 
Other hand, don't so much as keep a cash account : thev know how much 
money there is in the wallet, but, beyond this, their financial affairs are very 
misty, and the income and outgo judged only by guessing, more or less 
shrewd. Yet farming is a business — indeed it is //le business of the coun- 
try, upon the success of which all others depend.. The fai^mer is a mer- 
chant and a manufacturer, and much more, and, of all persons, he is the one 
who should conduct his affairs on the strictest business principles. The 
very fact that farming so often utterly disregards fundamental business 
maxims and methods without utter ruin is, in itself, the strongest evidence 
that it is a business offering unusual security and a wide margin of profit 
when properly managed. 

Every farmer's boy knows all the tables of weights and measures " b}' 
heart," but how little these are used on the farm. Even the size of the farm 
itself is a matter of uncertainty, dependent upon an old and unverified deed 
or the books of the assessor. There is no accurate knowledge of the size 
of the various fields, or their actual produce, — all is guess-work. The 
farmer guesses which cow eats the most, and guesses which gives the most 
milk, and guesses which milk is the richest, and so guesses at the merits 
and profit of all his stock, with very little actual knowledge as to any. And 
in the house, they guess that the cream is just warm enough to churn, and 
guess it would pay to become patrons of the creamery. It is a wonder that 
clocks and watches are used in such places, instead of depending upon the 
sun, and in cloudy weather guessing at the time of day. 



tNDEX. 67 

Dry measures are in common use,' it is true, but they are seldom 
needed, and only for matters of minor importance, like the sale of a few 
bushels of apples, potatoes, or grain. Weighing is the simplest method of 
measuring all standard produce, and now almost universally used when 
quantities are involved. A wagon-load of wheat or of onions, instead of 
being measured by the bushel, is weighed, like a load of hay. The best 
way to keep the record of a cow's milk product is by weight;* and it won't 
l)e long before eggs are sold by the pound. No grocer would think of doing 
business for a dav without scales of all sorts, but appliances for weighing, 
at least in any variety, are unusual on farms. 

A tape line, or a surveyor's chain in foot links, is an inexpensive article, 
and I believe every farm should have one and use it, that the size of every 
field mav be accuratelv measured and recorded, and the exact acreage of 
every crop known, not guessed at. And to appl\- ordinary prudence and 
system to one's business affairs, the farm equipment should include scales 
of such capacity and variety as to enable a complete record of everything 
going into the barn or store-house, and of everything consumed or sold. In 
place of estimates and rough guesses,' there should be a correct record of 
almost every occurrence on the farm involving time or quantity, product, 
purchase, or sale. 

Some time and some money are needed to start such a .system and keep 
it up. But experience proves that the time necessary to substitute absolute 
knowledge for the usual guess-work in farming is far less than one would 
suppose, and that it soon proves to be true economy. In like manner, the 
cost of scales and measures is soon saved by their use in place of guessing, 
as in the case of other useful farm tools. In short, it don't pay to depend 
upon guess-work on the farm, when it is so easy to have instead that sys- 
tematic management, mathematical accuracy, and proper records, which lie 
at the foundation of success in every busiaess. A. 



All butter and cheese factories handle milk by weight.

A Grammatical Love Letter 



Dear Madam, — 

Among the numeral prepositions toward a matrimonial union with your 
amiable person, 1 hope \ou will not decline the interjection of my prelimi- 
nary pretenses. 

I should not like to be a mere noun adjective to you in all cases, for I do 
])ositively declare that, comparatively speaking, I should be superlatively 
happy to agree with you in the subjunctive mood: I hope you will not 
opinionate me singular for desiring to have the plural in my family ; for it is 
the ablative of my soul to become a relative by the antecedent of a regular 
conjugation. 

As this alone can constitute a lawful concord with the feminine gender 
and afford a participle of substantive happiness, I hope in case of a sub- 
junctive copulation you will use no indicative solicitations in the imperative 
mood for I am the potential. 

While you are in the future, either passive or supine, every article, posses- 
sive or genitive, shall become dative translation to you. 

Nothing shall be accusative against your government, and your sweet 
nominal self without a noun or pronouri shall be my vocative until Death, 
the great ablative of all living, by the gradual declination of our corporeal 
nature puts a small determination to the present tense, and Time through 
an infinite progression of ages will render us pre-ter perfect in the future. 

In the interim my principal part of speech shall be that you put the most 
charitable construction on this simple proposition and your answer be con- 
sonant to the wishes of, 

Madam, 

Your inestimable Lover, 

SYNTAX.

-> Fire Department, M. A. C, 



The hose carriage is brought to the fire by the Freshman class in com- 
mand of the Lieutenants of A Company. 

The Captain of A Company will be in charge till the arrival of Major 
Alvord, who then assumes control. 

The Junior class under command of the Captain of B Company la\- the 
hose to the tire. .The first Sergeants of A and B Companies hold the 
nozzle. The Duty Sergeants of A and B Companies stay at the hydrants 
from whence the supply of water is taken. 

The Sophomore class goes at once to the lire and holds itself in readiness 
for any duty. 

The Senior class acts as guard over the building on tire, allowing no one 
to enter without authority. 

The Cadets are occasionally drilled in "fire drill," and the practice thus 
gained would rio doubt be of value to them in case of an actual fire. 

The benefit of a fire department was well shown in its prompt action not 
long since, in extinguishing a fire which started in one of the dormitories.

^i^ Class Poem 



HEN we first commenced our duties 
On this pleasant *' College Farm," ' 

We did not know the beauties 
Of the " Aggie's " life of charm. 

But we went to work in earnest, 
Taking up whate'er we found ; 

Striving hard at learning's ladder. 
Climbing up from round to round. 

In our strifes with other classes, 

We have ever been as one, 
And have shown our fellow students 

That we will not be outdone. 

In the classroom we have startled 
Many a " Prof." so stern and sage,- 

By our concise demonstrations, 
Of the problems of the age. 

Ever since we came to College, 
We have pushed our way along, 

And have filled our heads with knowledge 
By studying late and working long. 

Classmates ! soon our farewell greeting 

We must offer each to each, 
For years of college life are fleeting, 

And they soon will be complete. 

As we go out from Alma Mater, 
Each to choose his work for life. 

May it be that none shall barter 
Manhood, in this world of strife.
