Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1890, by 
"THE EDITORS," in the office of the Librarian of Congress, at 
Washington ; also by the Laws of the Reading Room Associa- 
tion, in the mail box under tbe stairs, as that class of mail 
matter known as Intellectual. 

NOTE.— May it not prove the tane of the mail-carrier's life.

DediGobion. 



To our ideal, the impersonation of our 
individual thouglits and feelings, the real- 
ization of our cares and hopes, the object 
of our pride and adoration, whose name 
entwines all our memories of college life : 
To the class of '92 do we lovingly dedicate 
this volume, the publication of which has 
been entrusted to our care. 




Greebingi 



As one watches the rare tender blossom, 
When the unfolding hour draws near, 
So, methinks, you have waited, all breathless, 
Till the Index in glory appear. 

Old "Aggie" can boast of no other, 
Which for culture with this plant will vie, 
Which each year has a different blossom 
To surprise and bewilder the eye. 

As an herb for medicinal purpose. 

It's a tonic prepared for the mind, 

Just the thing to prescribe for your neighbor, 

As it opens the eyes of the blind. 

" '92" sends this bundle of petals. 
With heartiest greetings in verse, 
And hopes this '■'■original package" 
Will make you all better, not worse.

" 'Tis well to borrow from the good and great; 
'Tis wise to learn; 'tis God-like to create! " 

" 'Tis pleasant, sure, to see one's name in print,— 
A name's a name, although there's nothing in't." 

"Was ever book containing such vile matter 
So fairly bound ? " 

" Like Ca:sar now thou writ'st what thou hast done; 
These acts, this book, will live while there's a sun."

TO obtain a thorough knowledge of an institution, one must know not only 
the resources of it as such, but he must become acquainted with its internal 
make-up, and with the manner of carrying out the affairs of its every-day life. 

So it is with a college: If one desires to become acquainted with its true 
character, he must have not only the superficial knowledge to be obtained from 
the college catalogue, but he must have a knowledge of the students' every-day 
life. If, as is usually the case, he cannot gain this by personal contact, how 
can he better accomplish his purpose than by perusing the pages of the stu- 
dents' publications? 

With this thought in mind, we have striven to present the students, their 
organizations, their hopes and desires, their likes and dislikes, their ambitions 
and discouragements, as they are, or as they appear to the minds of the students. 

In presenting this volume of the Index, we have anticipated for you a little 
surprise, viz., its enlargement, new form of cover, and improved general appear- 
ance. 

We do not wish to uphold our production as a model to be forever copied 
after, and sincerely hope such will not be the case, for "nothing is absolutely 
perfect." It is the pence which make the pounds; it is the raindrops which 
swell the ocean; it is through the root the oak acquires its strength; so each 
new feature added, although it may be small, affects the general result. 

The Editors, in submitting these pages for your inspection, do not wish to 
boast of their excellence. Our desire is that you buy, read, and criticise.

IT is with mingled feelings of joy and sorrow that we hand in our last com- 
munication to the Index board. Three times have these contributions been 
passed in, representing as many years of our college life: years the experiences 
of which, through all the shifting scenes of the future, can never be erased from 
our memory. What they have brought us, each must answer for himself. 

As we look over our numbers now, we miss mariy faces that had become so 
familiar to us during our early college life, but who have, for one reason or an- 
other, dropped out, leaving only fifteen of the twenty-nine who entered with us; 
since then, however, we have added three new men to our class. We have now 
reached hard-pan, and those who have remained feel that is has not been in vain 
that four years of the best part of our lives have been spent in Agricultural halls. 

We trust that '91 has done her duty to her Alma Mater, as well as to herself. 
Have we not always taken a prominent part in athletics, and have we not been 
generous in financial support, also? What better way could we have taken to 
perpetuate the name of '91 than by establishing a college paper? We have been 
through the usual course of study, that has been changed somewhat since we 
entered college, the changes being always for the better. Chemistry we took 
up in the usual manner, with the addition of quite extended lectures on the pro- 
cess of fire-\wg without the production of carbon. "How is Psychology?" a 
Junior asks, with anxiety upon his face; "Is it harder than Rhetoric?" My 
friend, so far as our representative faculties act, we should say that if you have 
a definite idea as to the non ego, and externality, or even the object object, you 
will find it comparatively easy; otherwise you will not. 

20 



It is with many regrets that we leave our pleasant rooms in old "Aggie," 
endeared to us by so many happy associations; and above all, we regret that we 
are to leave those dear girls, who have helped us to pass many a pleasant hour 
and kept us from being homesick. 

It will be but a few short weeks before we will leave the sheltering arms of 
our Alma* Mater, and enter the different paths to which duty calls us. Whether 
we will ever meet again as a whole class, time only can tell. But some of us will 
no doubt meet together and talk over those good old times that we had when in 
college. G.

^TNOTHER of the four stepping stones of our college life has been passed, 
(S/jL and it finds us in the enviable Junior year, with its pleasures, its duties 
aud responsibilities. '92 has stood the strain of the tirst half of her course with 
the accustomed grit, and although she has come out somewhat lessened in num- 
bers, yet in intellectual ability much has been gained. 

Upon assembling at chapel at the opening of the term, we found ourselves 
much diminished in numbers, but, as time passed on, all but six returned to their 
Alma Mater; and now, although some of the brightest and most popular faces 
are missing, we hope to press on to the graduation platform with unbroken num- 
bers. 

In our recitations, we have generally accjuitted ourselves with credit, and 
although a professor's frown may occasionally remind us that we are over-step- 
ping the bounds of a student's right to question, yet, as one of them said, "We 
get there." 

On the campus, we have tried to do our duty. We cannot boast of a Stagg, 
or any other athletic celebrity, but we have all turned out and done our best. 

Our protege, the Freshmen, taken as a whole, are a good-looking class of 
men, and we wish them all the best of success and fun during their course. The 
size of their class enables them to take good care of themselves, so that, with a 
few points at the opening of the term, we were allowed to occupy our easy 
chairs, only occasionally reminding a Sophomore that he must not be noisy or 
attempt to make any disturbance. 

As we consider the course of study we pursue, we cannot but regret that 

22 



our time will soon be spent. As the studies relating to the natural sciences are 
being advanced and enlarged, just so much more demand will there be for the 
M. A. C. graduate. And so, classmates, let us keep up our standard of scholar- 
ship, thus fulfilling our object in first coming, and also in furthering our object 
in our business life. p.

"S once again we gaze on the "all-fleeting hands of time," and perceive that 
a whole 3'ear of college life has passed away from us, we cannot but be im- 
pressed with the idea that we are no longer the troublesome Freshmen of the 
previous year, but rather the high-minded and popular class who take pleasure 
in the name of Sophomores. 

The sensations which we endured on arriving at college last September, dif- 
fered materially, of course, from those that we experienced a year ago, in being- 
more like those of acclamation and usefulness than of mingled fear and green- 
ness. There was also a feeling of sadness caused by the absence of many faces 
which we were accustomed to see about the buildings. x'\mong them were sev- 
eral of those who entered the battle with us, who have dropped out to pursue 
other courses in life; and one, the life of us all, the one to whom we all looked 
when brain and leadership were required, has left this mortal state of trial and 
vicissitude and no longer stands on this side of eternity. Tne loss of these, how- 
ever, although keenly felt, is partially remedied by the entrance into our ranks, 
of five new men of whom any class might well be proud. 

In athletics we have done but fairly well. We ha\e supplied quite a num- 
ber of men for the foot-ball team, both last year and this. Although we fur- 
nished no players to the baseball team last season, yet we showed that we had 
some good material amongst us, and feel sure that some men will go on next spring. 

In the way of intellect, we have made an appreciable advance. Having 
kept in mind a raising of the standard, the Professors made it unusually hard 
for us, but we hope they see that we are masters of the situation. However much 

24 



knowledge we gained last year, we are determined to get a great deal more in 
the same length of time henceforth. 

The rope-pull, that event to which the whole college looks forward with in- 
terest, has fallen through, owing to a slight disagreement as to the number of 
men to pull. 

As to rushes, we have had but two with the Freshmen, which, although not 
considered wholly decisive by them, were very satisfactory to us. 

Classmates, let us fasten the bonds of friendship still tighter, and shoulder 
to shoulder faithfully attend to the duties laid out for us in the next three years, 
trusting that our course will not be interrupted in the future by temporary sus- 
pension, and remembering that greatness and a high position in this world is for 
him only who works earnestly for it. c.

FIFTY strong — willing to take our share of college work and fun — we, the 
class of 1894, make our first bow to our colleagues at the M. A. C. and 
our friends at large. 

It is much too soon for us to say what the extent of our influence will be, 
but, if numbers and good intentions count, we hope that ere the four years are 
passed, which make us graduates from our Alma Mater, we will have done our 
part towards proving that the spirit of the college is to make men out of boys, 
and useful citizens of all her pupils. 

Though our class outnumbers any other in college, we trust the awfulness 
of this majority will not tempt us to lessen its size in order to be more like in 
quantity, as well as in quality, the respected class of '93. 

There is such a thing as anticipating one's greatness, but in matters involv- 
ing the skill of a class, such a maxim does not apply. Hence, we feel no temer- 
ity in stating that thus early in our career we have captured the "Rope," which 
'93 counted among its choicest treasures. We have also rushed them success- 
fully. Let us forbear! This is only a hint of what is yet to be developed in 
our ranks. We have met '93 in a game of foot-ball, resulting in a score of 12 to 
12; and, better still, we squelched the too over-confident "Intelect" Freshmen 
by a score of 18 to o. 

A modesty common to all good Freshmen, obliges us to leave the remain- 
ing worthy doings of our class to be related by some one else. 

So far, the transgressions upon our rights have been too few to mention, 

26 



but we are prepared to resent any trifling with our dignity as the largest class in 
college. 

And so, hoping that the Future will smile on us as kindly as the Past has 
done, and with a sound and hearty 

Rah-Rix-Rah, Zip-Booni-Bah, 'p4-'p4-Rah-Rah-Rah, 
we make our exit. G.

(dIqss Poem, 

The wheels of time, through every clime, 

Are faster gaining speed, 
Our father's pace, to win the race, 

Would scarce fulfill the need. 

And thanks we raise, that our brief days. 

Come in this age auspicious, 
When men are free to do and be. 

And all things are propitious. 

I'o us, 'tis true, the road is new. 
Yet Seniors for years have passed. 

And, we are told, our "magenta and gold" 
Leads on a procession vast. 

We pass, to-day, beside the way, 

A milestone, — let us linger 
And look afar, towards that bright star. 

Where points the "Index" finger. 

Each man so true, of 'ninety-two. 

Let us not weary be. 
For, gath'ring strength, we'll reach at length 

What we in distance see. 

On yonder height, near out of sight, 
The "Castle Success" doth stand. 

With towers of gold, so fair to behold, 
Where lieth the "Happy Land."

Assist, O lofty muse, that didst inspire 

The bards of old, when they the deeds of men 

Sought to portray: For this momentous theme 

Consummate skill requires — 

That, framed in language fitting, 

It a warning mute may stand 

To all, who on devising mischief seem intent. 

A second Eden was the place in mind, 

With naught to tempt to disobedience; 

Sure, Holyoke's lofty dome would frown. 

If, gazing down, it should behold 

Aught to displease the gods; nor chance is there 

For ignorance, since here if anywhere doth stand 

The tree of knowledge, which, unlike the tree of old, 

Is free to Adam's sons, as it was judged, forsooth. 

That knowledge, if possessed by them alone, 

Was safe and harmless. So, in the days long past, 

Tryptolemus, the need beholding, 

Grafted a choicer branch, which wide doth spread 

Its shade o'er all the field of science. 

Such the surroundings, such the dizzy heights 

Of moral atmosphere through which these fell. 

Baldus, the regal drummer, who at games of ball 

Had also won renown, was first found guilty, 

And for minor sins placed on probation; 



46 



'Till, worst of all, from Warner's class he bolted, 

Carrying the itinocents in like shame enthralled. 

Then 'twas a trying hour, when all the powers supreme 

Sate in high conclave, until, as verdict final. 

They bade the culprit leave; and though his class entreated, 

'Twas in vain, — the edict had gone forth 

And naught could disannul it. 

This should suffice to quell all conduct baneful, 

But when the seeds of mischief are well strewn. 

Long is the process of extermination. 

This was proved true, when on the chapel walls 

Was found, "No Smoking." There were looks aghast! 

Such desecration! Who the deed would dare? 

Still, quiet did predominate. 

Until that well-remembered morn. 

When at the chapel door a mighty rush ensued. 

The Sophomore and the Fresh thought of naught else 

Save the stupendous onslaught. 

Ye who have ne'er beheld such human conflict 

Know nothing of its fury; e'en nature's wildest spasms 

Bear but a tame resemblance; volcanoes. 

Earthquakes, tidal waves, and cyclones 

Dwindle to insignificance before a rush terrific. 

'Twere vain to interpose; they still surged to and fro. 

Nor ceased till sheer exhaustion did compel. 

Then, after all was o'er, terror of retribution 

Struck to their vitals. What would transpire? 

They had not long to wait, for soon by high command 

Into the august presence they were ushered; 

The magnates stern, inexorable, with indignation incensed. 

Waited to pass judgment. 

As ]^&y-Stone in the rout, one was suspected, — 

A ready writer and a scholar apt, of his ability perhaps too well aware, - 

Yet he, the class historian, trembled among the guilty. 

Then Marulehead's handsome son, the Second Gregory, 

47 



Who, unlike Skipper Ireson with heart of stone, 

Is much admired and loved by womankind, 

And Capt. Woodbrey, who for book-lore thirsted not. 

In military tactics deemed most skillful, — 

These three were all found wanting, when from the high tribunal 

They were dismissed. O mishap dire and dreadful! 

Full well they knew that justice's stern awarding 

Meant only banishment — that saddest blight 

That could befall; yet 'mid the dregs was found 

One sweet, alleviating: Comrades would not forsake, 

But for them crave a pardon. Once more they plead 

To have a fallen brother reinstated; 

But ears were closed and hearts became as adamant, 

The higher powers remained austere, inflexible, — 

7"/im- infant food was "Edwards on the Will." 

So these departed, and gates closed upon their heels. 

And, being quite shut out, they disappeared among the common herd; 

Woodbrey to the paternal roof himself betook. 

Stone in the nearest haven sought a shelter. 

While Gregory by the ordeal was so scorched and withered 

Naught but a tropic clime could he endure. 

So sped he to Columbia, S. A.; with prudent policy the rush foregoing. 

Within a government so new, he may receive appointment. 

But list ye once again! Poor "Slim" 's among the missing. 

He who could play "full back," a most tremendous kicker. 

The pride of the base ball ground, yet tripped he on chemistry. 

Tripped and fell headlong. 

Still Aggie stands unmoved, secure upon New England rock. 

And her surrounding mountains downward look. 

Bespeaking calm approval. And in the days to come, 

Among her sisters through our broad land scattered. 

May she stand first and foremost.

The iDenefibs o?i a Militciry Traininc]. 

Of what benefitis it to a young man who does not expect to enter miltary life, or make the 
study of arms a profession, to pass through a course of military training? This is a ques- 
tion that is often asked, and unless the matter is looked at in all its different phases, one that 
is hard to answer satisfactorily; yet looking at what is desired in the way of practical results 
from a college education, no other department has a more general and all pervading influ- 
ence on the after-life of a college student, than the military. 

In 1862, the National Government gave large grants of public lands to different state 
institutions, with various conditions attached, one of which was that a military department 
be instituted in the college benefited by the appropriation. It was seen that it would be 
of incalculable benefit to the Government to have a large body of young men sent out 
yearly from our institutions of learning, well educated and prepared to take the place of 
leaders among their fellow citizens, who had had a military training and consequently 
were fitted to take the positions of officers, in case this country should again be obliged to 
call upon its citizen soldiery 

During our late war the material for private soldiers was practically inexhaustible, but 
the scarcity of men fitted to become officers, able to instruct the men under their com- 
mand, and control them under the strict discipline made necessary by the war, was one of 
the causes which prolonged the rebellion to such an extent. The officers had to be edu- 
cated in their duties before they could successfully perform them, and this took a large 
amount of valuable time, when it could least be spared for such a purpose. The soldiers 
themselves recognized the lack of proper knowledge among their officers, and consequent- 
ly failed to feel that reliance in them that soldiers must in order that the best results may 
be attained by their efforts. If the necessity again arises tor the national Government to 
call for volunteers for its protection, the supply of men who can command companies, and 
fill the important places of subordinate officers intelligently and well, will be equal to the 
demand; this will be due to the present system of military instruction in our colleges. 
So much for the return which the Government expects to receive for its large outlay. 

Now of what practical benefit in every-day life as a private citizen is this branch to 
the student himself? 

First, the physical training is excellent. In our Agricultural Colleges where so many 
young men are using every moment that they can spare from their studies, to help support 

71 



themselves during their college course, they are apt to forget that their health, in future 
vears, will be of more value to them than the money they can earn at present by too con- 
stant toil. If it was not for the military training, which straightens the back, and forces 
back the shoulders, thus giving the heart and lungs room to act and perform their func- 
tions properly in nourishing the body, they would leave college with the same mental edu- 
cation perhaps, but lacking the physical strength to put the knowledge they have worked 
for and gained to any practical use. Some few would get this physical training voluntari- 
ly, in the gymnasium, but the number would be small in comparison with the whole 
number benefitted by the compulsory attendance at military drill during certain hours 
during the week. 

But the physical benefit from the drill, is not all that the Military Department confers 
upon the Agricultural College graduates. In the senior year, just previous to passing out 
into the world to make their own place, which in this age every mari must do for himself, 
the students are placed in positions of more or less authority, where it is necessary for them 
to throw off the boyishness of younger years and put on the dignity of men. 

They learn while yet in college to so comport themselves as to demand the respect of 
those by whom they are surrounded, and, having obtained this, to become leaders among 
their fellows, and not followers. They learn also lessons of restraint, thus becoming able 
to control others, and when they leave college, and go out into active life, the desire to be- 
come leaders among their fellowmen, and not simply to follow in the beaten tracks of 
others, has already been implanted in their minds. 

Still other benefits are derived from a military training: Punctuality, promptness, 
respect to superiors, and also obedience to those under whom they may be placed. These 
are all valuable acquirements which have a high market value among business men. A 
young man possessed of them, will find it easier to obtain employment, and more lucrative 
positions will open to him, than to those lacking in these most essential qualities of a 
successful man. L- w. c.

IVY f^OEN^ 

We meet here together an ivy to plant, 
Our hearts filled with gladness and joy; 

'Tis the last parting token of love and esteem 
.To "Aggie," which nought shall destroy. 



78 



A wee slender plant, very fragile and slight, 

'Tis just in the morn of its life, 
A symbol of us, as we enter the world 

Prepared to engage in the strife. 

But yet there is hidden within its small stem 

The germ of an infinite size; 
While the fostering care of the sun and the rain 

Will soon cause its spread to the skies. 

Long life has the ivy in beauty to grow. 
As it clings to the chapel's gray wall, 

Long life be our hope for this score of young men. 
May we ne'er to ignominy fall. 

As this ivy grows greater from year unto year. 
Let us pray our success will increase. 

May -honor and glory await us until 
At length we are laid down in peace. 



IVY S©J^©. 

How dear to my heart are the scenes of old Aggie, 
And all the loved spots which my college days knew. 

Four years have passed by, bringing both work and pleasure. 
And now we must enter the world and be true. 

We plant with much pleasure the green twining ivy. 
Which binds all our hearts in union so strong. 

Chorus. 

Let truth be our motto, and life everlasting 

Will be the reward of our glorious class. 
We'll remember the college in far distant future, 

And cherish our colors, the old gold and blue. 

O Aggie, fair Aggie, we'll love thee forever, 

And hope that your beauty with years will increase. 

Like a youth from his home, we must leave your sweet bowers. 
To return in the future and see you again. 

Our dear ivy vine each year will grow larger. 
Till soon it will form a monument grand. 

— Chorus.

As we gather round the drill hall, 

To sing our parting song, 
Happy memories rush upon us, one by one. 

'Tis from here we took the cannon 

And with them fed the sheep. 
While we all laughed at poor old Ninety-one. 

Chorus. 

Hurrah for Ninety! our class so dear! 
How "Ching, Chang, Chong," our hearts will cheer. 

We will sing our parting song, 

As we gather in a throng, 
And we'll bid farewell to all our college days. 

Now to our chapel fine, let us sing a little line. 
How we took our freshman picture on the steps. 

How upon the black clock face. 

We saw 'Ninety's shining face. 
When we went to chapel one fine Sunday morn. 

— Chorus. 

From South College we must part. 

But it nearly breaks our heart. 
For 'tis here we find the fire marshal brave. 

In the tower tall and square, 

Joe and Castro live up there. 
And they manufacture weather at the top. 

- — Chorus. 

At North College's ancient shrine, 

We will sing our classic rhyme. 
As we bid farewell to Journald, Puck and Judge; 

For no longer Taft and Stone 

Up the iron stairs will go. 
Nor will Captain Dave his tactics study more. 

— Chorals. 

Now Old Chapel say good-bye, 

We must leave you with a sigh 
For the many happy times we crossed your door. 

We have parted from the lab. 

And Infinity and Tab, 
And John Sherman rings the brazen bell no more. 

— Chorus.

7[)e Prize Gompapy 



During the first part of the fall term, 1889, the plan of forming a company to drill 
against Company K was advocated; soon 20 men were chosen and Company K challeng- 
ed for a prize drill, to take place Dec. loth, the prize to be a stand of colors. 

On the 18th of November, most of the company went to Springfield to see "The 
Peabody Guards" drill. After this the company drilled daily from one to two hours, also 
two evenings in College Hall, in preparation for the contest with Company K. On the 
night of the trial, Dec. loth, the company left the college about 630 o'clock, marching 
down town, preceded by the drum corps, which proved later in the evening to be a valu- 
able addition to the drill. The judges of the contest were Col. Clark, Lieut. Cornish and 
Rev. J. B. Drennan. Company A formed and reported to the judges at about 8.30 o'clock. 
The drilling of the company was very good. Of course some mistakes were made, it 
being the first public drill of the company. The loading and firing were especially fine. 

After a selection from the drum corps, Company K took the floor and performed the 
movements upon the schedule. Then followed a selection from the orchestra, after which 
the judges rendered their decision, which was unanimous in favor of Company A, and the 
flag was presented to Capt. Barry amid the applause of the audience and three cheers 
from Company K. After the companies were dismissed, preparations were made for the 
dance, which was very enjoyable. 

During the winter term, several companies were challenged but all declined except 
The Father Mathew Cadets of Pittsfield. Arrangements for a drill were nearly complet- 
ed, when about two weeks before it was to take place, they withdrew, much to the disgust 
of our company. 

Company A appeared at two other times in College Hall during the winter, once on 
Feb. 17th and again Feb. 21st. On the latter date, the company gave an exhibition and 
sabre drill, and also a prize drill in the manual, for the benefit of the Base Ball Associa- 
tion. The gold medal offered for the manual drilling was won by R. P. Lyman of the 
class of '92. 

Although this was the last exhibition drill that was given, yet Company A continu- 
ed intact until commencement. All who were members of the company look back on 
their experiences without regret for the extra time they gave to it, as well as with kind 
regard for Capt. Barry, who so faithfully trained them.

^ Ne^ Version oP an Bid Song. 

( To be sung to the tune of The Mocking Bird.) 

I'm thinking now of Tabby, of Tabby, of Tabby, 

I'm thinking now of Tabby, 
For the thought of him is charming to me still. 

Many bolted recitations from the "labby," the "labby," the "labby, 

Many bolted recitations from the "labby," 
While Tabby's rocking cradle with a will. 

Chorus. 

Listen to the lul-la-by, 

Listen to the lul-la-by, 
The lul-la-by he's singing to his heir. 

Listen to the lul-la-by, 

Listen to the lul-la-by, 
As the soothing notes are floated on the air. 

My thoughts are now of the "Lieut.," the "Lieut.," the "Lieut.," 

My thoughts are now of Lieutenant, 
And the bad old cigarettes he likes to smoke. 

His office is covered with soot, with soot, with soot, 

His office is covered with soot, 
And the smoke there is so thick 'twill make you choke. 

Chorus. 

Come and take a smoke with me. 

Come and take a smoke with me, 
From strongest cigarettes there 'ere was made. 

Come and take a smoke with me, 

Come and take a smoke with me. 
For you know I'm well acquainted with the trade, 

'Tis of Fernald now I'm writing, I'm writing, I'm writing, 

'Tis of Fernald now I'm writing. 
And those queer old chestnut jokes he loves to make. 

He will make them while we're reciting, reciting, reciting. 

He will make them while we're reciting. 
As ihfiugh we needed them to keep awake. 

Chorus. 

Listen to the jokes he cracks, 

Listen to the jokes he cracks, 
He's reading them from olT his note books. 

Listen to the jokes he cracks. 

Listen to the jokes he. cracks. 
Making them without a changing of his looks.

♦Professor of Dignity. 



Bv Wratz, Esq. 

On July second, in the morn, 

The hour was seven nearing, 
When on the grounds a stir was made 

By Canavan's appearing. 
In vain he asked the question o'er, 

"Has 'Lieut.' been here this morning? 
'Secure the guns with lock and key,' 

Was 'Lieut. 's' most solemn warning." 
But none could tell, so back he went, 

And later he was seen 
Among a little company 

Assembled on the green. 
The cannon must be moved that day, 

So men and oxen came, 
And in the talk one often heard 

Professor Cooley's* name; 
For he was there to help secure 

And place in safe retreat. 
The cannons under chapel walls 

And loyalty defeat. 
For patriotism found no room 

In "Lieut's" pretentious skull. 
Helped by Professor Canavan 

No Aggie man should gull. 
Three men from town each long dark night 

The cannons well should guard, 
To brave the loaded guns of these 

Would sure be very hard. 
The days and nights passed quietly; 

His scheme was working well 
E'en on the morning of the Fourth, 

Still nothing new befell; 
The day was safely ushered in. 

Those old Napoleon guns 
Had never seen such lonesome days 

For many, many suns. 
But hold! The evening darkens down 

And lights are burning low, 



92 



While sentinels near the entrance way 

Are pacing to and fro. 
Anon a cannon's distant boom, 

A rocket leaps on high; 
But hark! there is another sound, 

A flash upon the eye. 
A rumble as of heavy load 

Being rolled across a floor, 
And a lantern dark, was seen to pass 

Near the old chapel door. 
"Is everything all ready, boys?" 

"All ready" 's the answer given. 
"Then let her go," and suddenly 

Silence with thunders riven. 
A crash, a crack and a rattle 

And thirty lights of glass 
Are scattered in broken fragments. 

Their career is ended, alas! 
For they have long been useful 

In keeping the outside air 
From being polluted with H2 S, 

And other sweet odors rare. 
Which are found in the vicinity 

Of — ahem — tri-colored cats, 
So who mourns more sincerely 

Than one by the name of Wratz. 
Echoes have scarcely died awa)' 

W^hen one hears the cannon wheeled 
Out from the building into the gloom 

By dusky figures concealed. 
The charges being well rammed home 

Set classic walls resounding 
As volleys came from the cannon's mouth 

The faculty's dreams confounding. 
Seven round charges fired fast, 

Each louder than before. 
Till, as at Jericho, the seventh 

Burst forth in a mighty roar. 



The scene is changed; this time appears 

Upon the chapel stairs, 
A gaping group with questioning look,. 



93 



Wry clothes and tumbled hairs. 
A form is seen approaching, 

A low voice heard to say, 
"Help us to put the cannon back 

About the break of day." 
But subsequent events occurred 

Before the rise of sun, 
And work of putting back the guns 

By other hands was done. 



Again the scenes are shifted, 

This time Lieutenant goes 
A hurrying on towards "Prexy's" house, 

Sniffing for prey, his nose. 
How could they find who fired the guns; 

At last he made "Prexy" think 
That the very best way to do it 

Was to kick up a great big stink. 
To the dormitories he hastens. 

Of inmates having a list, 
But is surprised as he trots around 

To find that all is v/hist. 
But they surely must give greeting, 

And, rousing, one takes the lead, 
By saying with plucky ardor, 

"Get out, you old hay seed." 
But "Lieut." ne'er thought of going 

Till his errand he has done. 
The President wished a meeting, 

At the library, one by one. 
The interview was short and prompt, 

The questions put quite plain; 
But as for getting any news. 

These questions were in vain. 
Some really knew no news to tell. 

But others I have heard. 
Knew all too well, yet strove to be 

Quite honest in their word. 
So these stood bravely at the bar, 

Cross-questions did not rattle, 
Of fellow-students they would scorn 

To be the one to tattle. 



94 



Still on the war-path "Lieut." did trot 

With Quarter-Master Gay, 
And interviewed Stowe, Clark H. D. 

And Ranney, so they say. 
He scarce could take his Sunday's rest, 

And soon as it would do, 
A victim of poor Ranney made, 

By second interview. 
If Ranney could be made to see, 

The matter in his light. 
And tell all that he knew to tell. 

It all could be made right. 
But no such glasses e'er would fit 

On Ranney's honest nose, 
And taking a decided stand, 
He sought to interpose: — 
"Suppose, while you were at West Point, 

Things were not going well. 
And you wereasked about it all. 

Do you think that you would tell?" 
"Indeed I would keep mum," said "Lieut. 

'But that's a different matter. 
West Point is not like Aggie, boy, 

And you are at the latter." 
So Ranney with unflinching zeal 

Stood firmly at his post, 
'Twere said if he had let it out 

All would have then been lost. 
But Monday passed and Tuesday came 

When rumors spread so swift. 
That dormitories soon would close. 

And all be sent adrift. 
If none would tell the secret. 

On Wednesday 'twould prove true 
They must seek other lodgings. 
The hours were growing few. 
But they had little trouble. 

And Wednesday there was seen 
A wagon-load of furniture. 
Behind a two-horse team. 
It seemed like going camping, 
A rollicking, jolly crowd. 



95 



That went with colors flying 

And music playing loud. 
For "Wanderer's Home" they headed, 

On "Cannon Avenue," 
Where shelter could be had quite cheap 

With Aggie full in view. 
Back to his room Stowe thought to go 

For what he'd left behind him. 
But "Tabby" stood with furtive eye 

And of trespass, did remind him. 
Williams and Gay might stay, they said, 

And see that all was right 
About the old North College, 

And lock the doors at night. 
But this kind (?) ofifer was declined, 

A watchman the}' must hire. 
Insurance true must be kept up. 

So they jumped in the fire 
And got their fingers badly burned 

At the rate of two dollars a day; 
So really in the end 'twas proved 

Such scheming did not pay. 
And so they let the boys come back 

A week before their brothers. 
And Alma mater since has proved 

One of the best of mothers. 
And when the Aggie foot-ball team 

Beat Springfields in October, 
And home returning from the game — 

I tell the truth most sober. 
The old Napoleon guns were fired 

Each rickety twelve-pounder. 
And ne'er on Aggie's grounds was heard 

A greeting that was rounder: 
'Twas eighteen shots the guns belched forth. 

Each one a little louder; 
But what made victory more complete, 

Lieutenant furnished powder.

UIFE'S ^EeESSIVIES. 



The saying that "people eat more than is for their best good," does not find its truism 
verified at Aggie. Why? you may ask. I will answer by asking another question: Why 
is it that hens do not have the teeth-ache? Unless one patronizes the baker's cart it is impossi- 
ble to escape the gnawings of the pangs of hunger between meals. Slufi there is, stuff, but — 
such stuff! And then Sunday — only two meals upon which to digest those deep and broad 
sermons, which take the strongest and most intellectual men to assimilate. In the words of 
the psalmist, I would cry out, "O, Absalom, myson;Omyson, Absalom; if ever thou comes t 
to the land of Aggie, bringthy Sunday food with thee; for the anguish of the supperless Sun- 
day nights, eked out by dry crackers and Frank Wood's mince pies, is unbearable, O my son." 
In looking over the class rolls, I find many among the number missing, and seem to hear 
some one say, "starved, starved!" Now, let us look at the athletic teams: between the 
lines of the score books I read, "starved, starved!" Freshmen, take heed to this warning, 
engage board with the Plumb West Club, and gel the benefit of a fast set, big board bill 
and improved health. Of the other houses, Freshies, beware; they are a choice between 
evils.

Youth and the opening rose 

May look like things too glorious for decay, 
And smile at thee — but thou art not of those 

That wait the ripened bloom to seize their prey. 

Leaves have their time to fall. 

And flowers to wither at the north wind's breath, 
And stars to set — but all. 

Thou hast all seasons for thine own, O Death!

Why should the Freshman class open a class boarding-house ? 

Because they have plenty of Bacon, Greens and Robbins, to say nothing of a Cook 
and a Cutter, besides all of the necessary Tooles. 

Why did the Sophs let the Freshmen take their rope? 
Because the Star(r)-light dazzled them. 

What article of trade does C. A. Smith resemble when playing ball? 
Cotton-batting. 

Why couldn't Green find the brandy bottle ? 
Because it was in the (K)night. 

When will '93 win a class game? 
Give it up. 

Why doesn't White get his hair cut but once a year ? 
Waiting for a rise in the wool market. 

Why is it that secret society men are constantly asking for butter at the table? 
Because they have the "butt-er" on the brain. 

Why does '93 call Willard the father of the Freshman class? 
As an excuse to cover up their ('93's) defeats. 

Why did Gay's squirrel drown himself after chewing up an Amherst Record? 
Because he needed water — one of Dr. W 's sermons was in that issue.

'Tvvas in the month of August 
As you all do doubtless know, 
There was born a babe to Tabby — 
Not so very long ago. 




'Twas a very pretty baby, 
But its cries annoyed him so 
That he rocked the boy to slumber- 
Not so very long ago. 

And the weary nights of watching 
As the lad began to grow 
Made old Tabby's whiskers scarcer- 
Not so very long ago.

obes ^rom bbe llibrary. 

The library of the college was first catalogued and made available to the students in 
the latter part of 1884. At that time there was a movement among the alumni looking to 
the raising of $10,000 as an endowment for its maintenance. The trustees, following the 
popular movement, voted that whatever could be secured from former students, who had 
gone away indebted to the college, should be devoted to this purpose. With the first hun- 
dred dollars obtained from this source, the work was started, and the impulse once given 
has never stopped, but gone on, spreading and widening, down to the present time. The 
entire amount has now been subscribed, and a little over $7000 paid in and placed at inter- 
est. Of this sum the alumni subscribed about $2500, besides contributing $1000 for the 
immediate wants of the library. When the maximum of ten thousand dollars has been 
secured, Herbert L. Carruth, of the class of 1875, agrees to give in books annually for ten 
years the interest of one thousand dollars at ten per cent. The Washington Irving Society, 
seeing the advantage of having all books classified alike, donated several hundred works, 
and with these and a nucleus already on hand, obtained by gift and purchase, the library 
was opened with 2703 volumes on its shelves. It has nearly quadrupled in size since that 
time, now numbering 9900, distributed in the different departinents as follows: 

Agriculture, . . . . 702 Titles, 2290 Volumes. 

Horticulture, 

Domestic Animals, 

Veterinary, - - - 

The Dairy, . . - 

Agriculture, - - - ■ 

Botany, . . . - 

Entomology, 

Chemistry, . . - 

Electricity, Heat, Light, Sound, &c., 94 

Biography, . . . 

History, . . _ . 

Political Economy, 

It is to be expected that the departments of Agriculture, Horticulture, and their allied 
branches would be the strongest, but the others have not been neglected. Still, Chemis- 
try greatly needs strengthening; Geology is sadly weak, while Mechanics and Physics 
have the merest apology of a representation. As the income increases, each department 
will be strengthened and every effort will be made to bring up the library to what it is in- 
tended it should be, a good, practical working library.

Among its treasures are "Heibner's Schmetterlinge," a complete set of which cannot 
be found in any other library in the country; an excellent black letter edition of the "Boks 
of Husbandrie," by Fitzherbert, the earliest writer in English on Agriculture, bearing the 
date of 1592; a quaint little work, entitled, "A Discourse Concerning the Vegetation of 
Plants, Spoken by Sir Kenelrne Digby, at Gresham College, on the 23rd day of January, 
1660;" a work in French on Japan, ver}^ finely illustrated, 1680; "Masters Teratology," 
growing scarcer every year; besides complete sets of many of the leading periodicals. 

Five volumes of Memorabilia, presented by Dr. Edward Hitchcock, are of special in- 
terest to the alumni. They are practically a history of the college, for there will be found 
a set of the Register and the Cycle, and bound up together: programs, class-day exercises, 
term schedules, catalogues. Indexes, poems, class histories — in fact, everything to delight 
the soul of one trying to transport himself into the past life of the college.

Come listen now and you shall hear 

Of all the Brownies, quaint and queer, 

The place and mystery of their birth, 

And their adventures round the earth. 

First they start, with noble mind. 

Away to Aggie on missions kind; 

On walks, and walls, and fences high, 

They paint figures to catch the eye. 

That people passing might perceive, 

In classes 'ninety-one and four they'd leave. 

Now to the cannons that must play a part, 

Thus on the campus they get their start. 

Then towards the old farm-house nigh. 

For all their tools swiftly they fly. 

Then a cannon they try to spike. 

So the Freshmen can't use it Freshman Night; 

But the vent is large, and the spike is small. 

And as they try it, it slips from reach of all. 

Just then the Freshmen appear on the scene. 

And before it's known, the fountain basin's seen. 

Well, so much for all that. 
For after this little spat. 
Two years roll peacefully by, 
Without trouble that anyone can spy; 
But at the beginning of the fourth. 
Other Brownies appear on Aggie's earth. 
Fresh from the town of Feeding Hills, 
And as green as newly medicated pills; 
Unused to things like the Temple, 
They tr}' to wash their hands in the urinal. 

Well let us not think of faults of this kind. 
But hope they'll improves in body and mind. 
And in the years that may come to pass. 
Let them not think everyone is a jackass; 
Arjd while they smile or praise bestow. 
And wonder whence ideas flow, 
The fact should still be kept in mind 
That people of the knowing kind 
Will heed the hints or lessons laid 
In rhymes and pictures thus displayed.

It is customary for the Freshmen to celebrate the last Friday night of every college 
3'ear with a class supper and other jollifications; so it was with '93, when Freshmen, but 
everything seemed to work against them. Lieut, and Prex. considered them rather a reck- 
less class and refused them the use of the $20,000 cannon. To overcome this discourage- 
ment, they set to work loading shells for the rifles, and as things seemed to run very 
smoothly, they at last became a little reckless, and one day those horrid Sophomores stole 
all their cartridges; then, deeming them too little experienced in the use of fire-arms, they 
took nearly all their guns, leaving about a dozen in the hands of the steadiest men. 

At last the bell rang, announcing that all examinations were over, and a few Sopho- 
mores hastened to guard the bell, getting ahead of the Freshmen and fastening the door 
behind them. Now the Freshmen, finding that they were beaten, spiked the door, but this 
inconvenienced no one, for pretty soon a Soph, wishing to come down, was let down on 
the bell rope. The Freshmen, seeing this, got hold of the rope, pulled it down pnd cut it 
into pieces; but you may now see all these pieces adorning '92's rooms. 

About 9 o'clock, the Freshmen repaired to the Amherst House to a supper, but as they 
had no printed menu (on account of expense), we cannot say what they had, except the ice- 
cream, which they brought up to the Juniors. 

After the Juniors' supper, the bonfire was next on the programme, and we can say it 
was a good one, as the farm furnished the material and teams to draw it with, free. 

About 2 o'clock, A. M., some Freshmen of '91 tried to reach the bell, but after a desper- 
ate effort, they succeeded in getting themselves caught in the P. S. K.'s g3'm. 

Thus ended Freshman Night, and we agree with what Prof. Maynard said to a Junior, 
next mr)rning: "You had a very quiet night, last night, not disturbing me once."

MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. 

ORGANIZED AT CHICAGO, NOV. 14, 1890. 



A meeting of former students of the college was held at French's, on -the 14th of

Agricultural College." 

The alumni and past students of the college, who reside between the Appalachians 
and the Rockies and north of the Tennessee river, are eligible for membership. All past 
and present officers and students will be cordially welcomed at the reunions, as guests of 
the association. 

Annual meetings will be held at such times and places, as may be determined by the 
executive committee. An annual assessment will be levied, sufficient to pay necessary ex- 
penses. 

The following were present at the first reunion ; 

Guests.

The Editors wish to express their thanks to H. F. Stone and C. Tyng for their vvoric in 
connection with the Index. Much of the good start and present success of the book is due 
to their efforts, and we regret exceedingly that they were not able to continue with us. 



Our Excuse System. — The adoption, by many of our foremost educational institutions, 
of a system of cuts, calls up many doubts in our minds as to the desirability and practicability 
of our excuse system as it is at present carried on at this college. It cannot with justice 
be said that the excuse system is one which is popular with the student or successful in its 
practical operation. The day when a college government should partake of the old dis- 
trict school regime is one of the past, and it has come to be a fact clearly demonstrated and 
generally recognized that the success of the student's college life should be more largely 
with himself and less with the professor. Our excuse system, requiring that the student 
be provided with a good excuse for an absence from a single recitation or a part, even, of 
a recitation, and causing him often to be dependent upon the professor's caprice for his 
excuse, despoils the college government of that essential element of dignity, and gives rise 
to a practice of deceit and underhandedness on the part of the student, which it should be 
the object of the college to suppress, much less to generate. 

On the other hand the cut-system places at the disposal of the student a given number 
of cuts or excused absences which he can use to his own best advantage. This system 
obviates the difficulty of obtaining excuses, gives the student more freedom, and yet at the 
same time does not materially increase the total number of absences. 

When we consider the fact that the leading American colleges may be included in a list 
of those adopting the cut-system, as well as the fact of its popularity with the American 
student, the question naturally arises, why should not we also do away with a system which 
has a small degree of popularity as compared with the cut-system, and which is as perni- 
cious in result as it is unsatisfactory in operation. And may we not pertinently inquire 
why? 

124 



The "Elective" System, now so common in American colleges, has not as yet, we are 
sorry to say, been adopted at this institution. It seems to us that by neglecting to furnish 
a course of so much advantage both to the students and the college, the M. A. C. is not 
doing what it can or what it ought to do for the education of those who have placed them- 
selves under its instruction. 

As the curriculum is at present, the student is given no choice as to the branches of 
study he may desire to follow; he must simply take the one course prescribed. 

No educational institution can lay down a course of study which will be the most 
advantageous for every student under its instruction, for what one student may another 
may not desire to study. The course of study at a college should be so varied as to give 
each student the liberty to select and pursue what will be of the most value to him. No 
man cares to spend his time in college on subjects that he has no aptitude for, and which 
will be of no use to him in fitting for the pursuit he intends to follow. 

To be sure a general knowledge of many subjects will not be amiss to any one, and 
to those who have plenty of spare time and money, with which to pursue a special course 
after graduating, such knowledge may be of value; but for the >oung man who desires to 
complete his education here, to take up branches entirely foreign to his intended pursuits 
in life is to place himself at a great disadvantage. 

If electives were offered at this institution, they would not only be of inestimable 
value to the student, but also of great advantage to the college itself. There can be no 
doubt that if such priveleges were offered, a large increase in the attendance at the col- 
lege would be the result. Almost the first inquiry of the young man who is looking about 
for a place of instruction is, where can I secure the greatest benefit; and in nine cases out 
of ten he will choose that institution which offers him the most varied choice of study. 

Faculty and Trustees of M. A. C, this question at no distant date will come before you 
for consideration. We urge that you will not longer hesitate to adopt the change, for it is 
our most earnest desire to see the "Elective" system in full working order before we leave 
our "Alma Mater." 



During the past year, many and varied have been the improvements about college; 
and what shows better for the prosperity of the college than its improvements? Two new 
professors have been elected, George F. Mills, formerly principal of Greylock Institute, 
professor of English and Latin, and James B. Paige, D. V. S., professor of veterinary 
science. Owing to the large Freshman class, the battalion has been divided into four 
companies, instead of three, as has been the custom. 

North College has received a renovation; the partitions between the bedrooms having 
been taken out, making one large, light and airy bedroom, in the place of two small and 
dark ones. Nearly all the rooms of the building have been papered and improved gener- 
ally. South College has received its share of attention, many of its rooms having been 
papered or kalsomined. The basement has been renovated, the old bathrooms replaced, 
..and two new tubs and two shower baths added. 

125 



The old drawing room has been fitted with tables, charts, microscopes and other appa- 
ratus, for the use of Prof. Fernald as a zoological laboratory. The botanical museum has 
been improved by the introduction of steam heat and another row of seats in the recitation 
room. The laboratory has been enlarged and remodelled, so that now it will accommo- 
date an entire class in microscopic work. 

There is one improvement (?) of the past year, which many of the students and alumni 
have deeply regretted. We refer to the removal of the fifteen young maples west of the 
college buildings. If the time and expense of removing them had been employed in clear- 
ing and grading up in their vicinity, they would have made an ornament to the college and a 
monument to the class which set them, as well as a cool, shady place, where the lazy stu- 
dent could hang his hammock on a hot, sultry day. 



Of especial interest to alumni and all friends of the college is this fact — Saml'p:i, C. 
Thompson, of the class of '72, recently won from twenty-one competitors, from throughout 
the United States, a prize of $150 for the best essay on roads, offered by the Engineering 
and Building Recordof New York.

A BRAIN FOOD. It increases the capacity for mental labor, and acts as a 

general tonic. It rests the tired brain and imparts thereto new life and energy. 

Dr. F. W. LYTLE, Lebanon, 111., says : 
" I have personally used it, with marked advantage, when overworked and the nervous 
system much depressed." 

Dr. O. C. STOUT, Syracuse, N. Y., says : 
" I gave it to one patient who was unable to transact the most ordinary business, be- 
cause his brain was 'tired and confused' upon the least mental exertion. Immediate relief 
and ultimate recovery followed."

AX TWENTY PER CENT. DISCOUNT! 

It is often asked how R. W. STRATTON can sell Boots and Shoes twenty per cent, 
less than anyone else in town. In the first place, I buy direct from the manufacturers and 
save ten per cent., and my store expenses are fifty per cent, less than any other place; so 
it can very readily be seen that I can sell Boots and Shoes twenty per cent, less than any 
one else.
