The Index work is done at last ; 

We've worked hard night and day. 
Our troubled brains we've racked for grinds 

And funny things to say. 

We've ground you all both hard and long, 

In fvui — don't take offense. 
You know you've all been jays at times ; 

Be good from this time hence. 


In grateful recognition of his high character 

as an officer and a gentleman^ 

and in appreciation of his earnest efforts for the improvement and 

elevation of the Battalion^ we respectfully

MINDFUL that our book is about to be searched for its faults and 
shortcomings, we, while still thinking it superior to all former vol- 
umes, cannot but yield to the impulse to touch upon the many ob- 
stacles which we have overcome in bringing it to its present state of per- 
fection . 

The departure of most of our college cranks to other institutions has 
caused us to transfer much choice and interesting material to the waste- 
basket ; but still there are a few students left to roast. We have tried to do 
our best by them, and leave the reader to judge as to our success. 

Another serious obstacle was the college regulation which prevented 
our business manager from cutting recitations more than two thirds of the 
time, and so oiu' advertisements are fewer than they otherwise would have 

As to the few remaining pages, they are quite evenly divided between 
jokes and statistics, of which the former are perhaps the more interesting, 
w^hile probably the latter are the fresher. 

We hope the reader will not allow himself to be influenced by any criti- 
cism of this volume he may see in the columns of our college paper, but 
vs^ill form his opinion only after a careful perusal of the book. Then, if he 
has any complaints to make, we should be glad to receive them in writing, 
with one dollar inclosed as a guarantee of good faith. All communications 
must be w^ritten on one side of the paper only, with name in the upper right- 
hand corner; otherwise they will be consigned to John McLane's library. 

In spite of many obstacles we trust we have not been wholly unsuc- 
cessful. The memory of our departed heroes has inspired us, and urged us 
on to greater attempts, and it is not without some feeling of confidence that 
we present this, the twenty-seventh volume of the Index. 


AT this our first meeting, we, the Ninety-seven Index Board, having 
consulted all previous Indexes, and desiring to publish a book that 
shall cover us with undying glory, and feeling that, amid the great 
diversity' of knowledge and opinions of our various members, we need some 
line of action to direct our wandering thoughts, make the following reso- 
lutions : — 

Resolved^ That the Ninety-six Index was good in its way. 

Resolved^ That all members of the Board keep away from South Deer- 
field and " Hamp " until after the book is published. 

Resolved^ That in return for much paternal advice and general infor- 
mation received from Mr. Sellew during our Freshman year, we give him a 
free "ad" in the Index (see "Ads," page 52). 

Resolved^ Since Mr, Kramer has specially requested that he be not 
called Baron Von Wooden-Head, that his request be complied with. 

Resolved^ That the names of all students who ask the Board not to 
roast them be published under the head of " Free Blows " (see page 146). 

Resolved^ That in recognition of the long and efficient services of the 
janitor, he be made an honorary member of the Faculty, and be hereafter 
known as Prof. Thomas Canavan, A. P. iV., Department of Slopology and

Landscape Art* 

IN American history the last fifty years of the nineteenth century will 
shine as an epoch in which science and practice made such progress in 
terrestial economy as the world has never before equaled, and it is but 
natural that the tidal wave of advanced thought, which struck our shores, 
should seize upon neglected art, — always susceptible to improving influences, 
— and raise her from a bemeaned position to the level abroad. 

Our forefathers, the sturdy Pilgrims, were of necessity too much en- 
grossed with the needs of the hearth to foster any aesthetic tastes they may 
have had, and, troubled as they were with Indian surprises, they soon came 
to learn that the ideal dooryard ornament was an impregnable stockade. 
The next two generations of our American ancestry made but little advance 
in out-of-door art, which is but natural since they had not been educated in 
it, — having none before them, — and also since they were constrained from 
learning of the possibilities of the art from abi'oad, travel being so expensive 
and tedious that few touring trips were made. 

But then came the change ; steamboats and railroads having made travel 
even enjoyable, there was a great influx of American tourists to all parts of 
the Old World. They found European cities embellished with numerous 
parks and boulevards, where the people, wearied by the toil of six days, 
enjoyed the seventh midst green fields and God's free sunshine. 

With the return of these tourists, with memories of the beauty of Paris 
and the gardens of Old England, our own cities began to wear little 
plots of green, mere tufts of grass in walls of stone though they were. 
Finding pleasure in these, the people began to clamor for larger areas ; and 
so has the cry kept on, each year swelling and growing, until now^ it almost 
appears impossible to appease it. Not only have our cities gone into 
park-making with eagerness, but also many of our wealth}- citizens ; so that 
at the present day we have many estates that compare favorably with 
Europe's best in their landscape qualities. This advance has been brought 
about by a comparatively small body of artists engaged in the work, who 
have given their lives to it with the devotion of the painter to his canvas. 


They have traveled the European continent through, and have brought 
home the best of the material found, giving to it all that characteristic 
American finish which, though indescribable, is always to be detected. 

AVe cannot here go into lengthy discussion of the technicalities of tlie 
art ; but its foundation is such a thorough knowledge of the various charac- 
teristics of the many species of trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants, and the 
numerous varieties, that under the hand of the artist nature, ever willing to 
be led, may take on a new beauty. He needs to know what part color and 
form play in beautifying the landscape ; how to produce any desired effect 
of view, whether of greater extent, height, or smoothness. While the painter 
sees a picture from one point alone, the artist in this case must make all 
glimpses of his work beautiful. It is to learn from Natvn-e her intents, and 
perfect them, to know her laws and follow them, that should guide him who 
would be an artist in landscape gardening. 

What is there that offers more possibilities of picturesqueness, a larger 
field for taste, skill, and labor, than landscape art? What higher ambition, 
than to paint a picture on nature's own background, more beautiful than 
any sylvan glade on woven canvas.? What higher reward for industry 
could one ask than to have made a "thing of beauty and joy forever" ? 

Every year the demands for competent persons in this almost new 
profession are increasing. The American people are fast seeing that the 
work requires a true artist. With a large wealthy class desiring beautiful 
country homes, what better chance to choose a life work that shall be a 
source of pleasure as well as of profit?

THE short time that we have been at Aggie has been full of interesting 
incidents, and doubtless will be remembered as one of the pleasantest 
terms in our college life. In spite of mathematical difficulties, in 
spite of " setting-up exercises," in spite of the ravages of a harmless Owl 
Club, we have lost none of the brave-hearted men who entered last Sep- 

Soon after college opened, we accepted a challenge from Ninety-eight to 
a rope pull. When the day arrived and our teams took their places on the 
Campus, it was found that the Sophomore team had heels the like of which 
we never before had seen. They differed much from the ordinary, and 
appeared to be a cross between a celery banker and a Japanese plow. The 
referee, however, showed his spirit of fairness by ruling out these monstrosi- 
ties. The vSophomores reluctantly yielded to this decision, and cut off 
barely enough to answer requirements. With what remained they were able 
to win fifteen feet of rope, which they could hardly have done with ordinaiy 
foot wear. 

In football we challenged them, but they would not play, thus forfeit- 
ing the game. Our figures were placed on the walks, but after much dis- 
cussion the matter was compromised by removing all figures vmtil after the 
next contest. 


Most of our time is spent on our studies ; this is especially true of the 
man who repi^esents the comparative degree of an inhabitant of Holland. 
Yet in athletics the outlook is encouraging. 

We are not lacking in other attractions. We have the only original 
^' Little Doc" in our class, and though he often smiles in chapel, he is of a 
pious turn of mind. The son of another of our esteemed Faculty promises 
to produce several interesting volumes on navigation, which he is studying 
in a practical way on the college lake. 

Leverett has furnished to our class her famous red-headed giant, who 
is often seen in company with the black-haired South Amherst dwarf. But 
our greatest glory is the only man in college who has been a Freshman for 
the last three years. 

We have great hopes for the future — " the past, at least, is secure." 
We shall spare no effort to make for ourselves a record that shall do honor 
to the class and to the college of which we have so recently become mem- 
bers. W.

When first we came away from home 

Our hearts were full of sorrow, 
And the first night our thoughts were full 

Of going home to-morrow ; 
But mamma told us to be good 

And not to feel aweary, 
And sent us rattles and such toys, 

And made our lives quite cheery. 
They do a lot of funny things, 

We find, up here at college ; 
We've I'eally gotten since we came 

Some mighty startling knowledge. 
We never knew before that boys. 

Like codfish, needed salting. 
Until some fellows came one night 

And, in our bedrooms halting, 
Said we, alas ! were fresh as grass 

That spi'outed on the campus, 
And " salted " us in ways enough 

To pickle any grampus. 
As time rolled on and we grew up 

To be a little bigger. 
We thought we'd show the Sophies how 

To cut a decent figure. 
We tried to keep our faces calm, 

And always to look mild ; 
But they, by horsing us for fruit. 

Did nearly drive us wild. 
But we'll get square with all the world, 

And make cold water free 
By day and night, we swear it, for 

The century class to be. 


To an Old Crib-book. 

O thou whose ever helpful page 

Hath saved from Prexy's fatal pen, 

Thy praise shall swell through all the age, 
All up and down this pleasant glen. 

In Algebra I used thee, 

And was from Courtenay's graveyard saved; 
Thy subtle aid in Chemistry 

Was what my indolence had craved. 

Conditions thou didst save me from, 
From many "Finals" set me free; 

Thou madest "goose eggs" change to tens: 
I'd not be here ^vere't not for thee. 

But now thy charm has gone to smash. 
Thou king of fools but slave of men ; 

I'll burn thee with my other trash 
When summer comes again.

AFTER spending a very pleasant, and we think profitable year at 
college, ^ve take pleasure in sending our second communication to 
the Index. Four of those w^ho entered with us have not returned, 
and, our class being a small one, their loss is keenly felt. In our Freshman 
year we were quite successful, winning in the rope pull, but losing in the 
ball game. At the v\^inter meet our class made a good showing, several of 
the "firsts" being won by our men. In the way of rushes or encounters, 
we had but two with Ninety-seven ; and although we were outnumbered both 
times, ^ve feel very well satisfied with the results. One of the many happy 
incidents of the year was the botanical trip with Professor Smith to Mt. 
Toby, the great event of the day being a ball game with the tvs^o-year men. 

Our class banquets have been very enjoyable to those participating in 
them. On the night of June i3th we eluded Ninety-seven, and held our 
first class supper in Northampton. After partaking liberally of the sump- 
tuous feast prepared for us our toasts were offered, and were followed by 
music and singing. So great a success w^as our first attempt, that an im- 
jDromptu feast was held on the night of the Pi"esident's reception. 

We had hoped for and expected a large Freshman class this year, but 
in this w^e were disappointed. 

The abominable system of fagging or hazing has not been practiced to 
anv great extent this year. In this we are taking a stand with many of the 
leadine collesfes in the land. 


The rope pull — that event which the whole college looks forward to 
•with interest — was not lacking in excitement this year. Although the Fresh- 
man team was very strong, and did not lack for confidence or practice, 
nevertheless when time was called our anchor had a good fifteen feet by 
his side. The winning of this our second rope places us among the few 
classes that have obtained two of these prizes. 

Our Sophomore mountain day was an event which will long be remem- 
bered by each one of us. In company with the genial Dr. Stone we visited 
in turn the Notch, Mt. Holyoke College, and the Prospect House. 

During the year the professors, keeping in mind a higher standard, 
have so arranged their subjects that our course is much more comprehensive 
than heretofore. 

Ninety-eight has thus far made a good record. Let each man in the 
future do his duty, so that he may be an honor to his class and college.

Should you ask me what to call them, 

Call these things we see so often 

On the street and on the campus, 

Chewing cuds of stale tobacco, 

Smoking pipes of heathenish mixtures, 

Swearing oaths with fiendish accent, 

Wearing hats raked o'er one eyebrow, 

Making bluffs at dead-tough dialect, 

Trying to pass as sporting gentry, 

Shouting loudly, " Kill the Freshies ! " 

Always trembling when they see one ; 

Staring boldly at the maidens 

Who adorn this beauteous village ; 

Often cribbing, never plugging, 

Flunking always, knowing nothing, 

But assuming to know all things : 

Should you ask me then this question, 

" Tell me, vs^ill you, what are these things? "' 

I should answer sorrowfully, 

Though it shamed me to confess it, 

" They are Sophomores of Aggie." 




5i5S-lboom-a/|( Jfic-a-l-aao. 

FOR the past week or so my dreams, as well as my waking hours, 
have been haunted by two beings in fiendish guise ; one of portly 
dimensions, the other tall, slim, quiet, and graceful. The portly 
one, on catching sight of me, pursueth me and on capturing me com- 
mands me to hand over the class history ; the slim one, on the contrary, 
gracefully gliding over the intervening space, smilingly murmurs as he 
reaches my side, "When will you have that history ready?" Worn out 
by such persecutions I take my pen in hand. Drew will probably want 
to know how else I could take it ; but there are other things for him to learn 
first, e.g.^ how to skin lobsters, also how to make a call on Friday evening, 
I'll let my information i-est awhile — to tell you a few of the deeds of our 
(large, small, magnificent, insignificant, wonderful) class.* 

Shortly after getting comfortably settled here a terrible malady swept 
through our ranks ; and although we had the best professional services of 
Dr. Cribalot, we could not save from its baneful influence several of the 
future rulers of the intellectual world. The disease is known among us 
as Washbui'nitis Stickemall^ and was common among the youth of our 
class until it suddenly disappeared, six or seven months ago. 

The principal work of our Sophomore year was the subduing of 
Ninety-eight ; but we also found time to beat them at baseball ; to run 
away with and dismount their " buckboard " on the campus, being 
assisted in the latter exercise by the college in general. Ninety-six being 

See Choice of Words, H. Biibson's Intended Rhetoric. 


particularly prominent; and last, but not least, we put Eaton' syee/ — Fresh- 
man Eaton, I mean, not Bill — in the fountain. We could not get the rest 
of him in, as his feet filled the fountain to overflowing. 

On coming back this fall we were stunned by the news that Pop — the 
"Julius Cfesar" of our class — had left us. Without him we were com- 
pletely lost, and wandered aimlessly around doing nothing, until "Windy" 
came forward, offering to take his place and do the best he could. He 
beats Pop by two words a second, and shows promise of doing better 
than that in time. 

One of the most delightful experiences of our college life was the 
Junior trip. At least that is %vhat the man who made himself famous 

by uttering those immortal words, "Mr. G , are you ready for these 

boys? " says ; and what he says goes, especially in the Military Department. 

We left Amherst all right, and we reached Boston all right, but 
owing to the noise and confusion of the city several of us lost ourselves ; 
in fact, a good many of vis were lost in one way or another, so that when 
ovir worthy professor reached the objective point of the afternoon. Horticul- 
tural Hall, he found that 

The hall it was there, But we weren't in it; 

With its pumpkins and pears, Oh no! we weren't in it. 

We were greatly annoyed by the youth of the city, who, when- 
ever we passed, would sing snatches of songs, in which such phrases as 
" The wind zzzzzzz-ed," "At the little bunch of whiskers on his chin," 
and "A pretty foxy guy was old Svengali," seemed to predominate; but 
nevertheless ^ve enjoyed ourselves to the best of ovu" ability, and would go 
again — if we got the chance. 

We have recovered from the effects of the trip, and once more are 
wearily plodding our upward way, not over the thorny path of knowledge, 

but up the steep path to the B M , to hear up-to-date lectures on the 

different vegetables we did or did not see at B and vicinity. 

You must always bear in mind, whenever thinking of us, that we are a 
collection of oddities so joined together by the bonds of love and sympathy 
as to make a peculiar whole ; we beat anything on earth in this respect. 

Any one who has read Irving' s " Legend of Sleepy Hollow," and has 
any desire to see the only good personification of the hero, Tchabod Crane, 
has only to pass by the campus, it makes no difference at what time of the 
day, and he will see Ichabod as he really was. If I remember rightly, he 
was tall, lank, and most loosely put together ; also he got mixed up with a 
pumpkin in some way. His personification does not get tangled up with 
pumpkins, but you should see him get tangled up with a football. A queer 
boy is " Lib.," and he says queer things, two of the queerest being, "Going 
to let me pitch.?" and " I can play all around Kinney." 


Cully, our cute boy, is afraid he is going to be mentioned in this work 
of art, and I am sorry 1 have not the space to devote to him ; but suffice it to 
say that he is a ball plaver, singer, musician of no small note, being able to 
play an ocarina, and a '' screecher."* He is very deeply interested in the 
subject of Market Gardening. 

Our boys may be found in all of the college organizations, several of 
which we run ; one of them, the Ninetv-seven Whist Club, has nothing but 
men of our class in it. What other proof do you want of our running things? 

We have one moustache, but no beards to deceive you ; one redhead, 
one Smith — not a blacksmith, and only one King ; he rules the Tower Domain. 

" There is no royal road to learning," so let us be content to strive 
zealously for it, so that we, the Class of Ninety-seven, may make our mark 
in the world at some future day not far distant. 

So endeth this epoch of our histor^^ 

N. B. — Any one, taking offense at anything in this epistle, wishing to 
call me out may do so by using his lungs. Am generall}' to be found in 
Cully's joint. E. 

*A "screecher" is a person who is continually emitting funny veils, howls, 
screeches, and laughs.

And rear me high my castles fair 
Where fame and fortune dwell.. 

Now falls to me the heritance 

Of dreamy hours replete 
With spells of some mischievous glance, 
While on my study walls I trace 
A ribbon, glove, a bit of lace, 
And read each story sweet.

Amherst Aerioultural Students Have a 
JoUy Dinner at Sprine&eld. 

SPRINGFIELD, June 1-At 8 o'clock- 
tonight a gray and noisy crowd of Am- 
herst aglcultural students gathered in 
hotel Glendower to hold their freshman 

They had g-ood reason to be jubilant, 
for they had outwitted the "sophs," 
who, without donbt, would have Inter- 
posed every liosslble obstacle to this 
bold deflitnce of college custom and tra- 

It is a tacit agreement among nearly 
iill Colleges that the "youngatera" must 
not asph-rt to anything more luxurious 
than a cold s^Jiead In their own rooms, 
and must content themselves to wait 
patiently until the aophomore year, 



they are permitted 
real banquet. 

Bur the cUlss uf-97 of the agricultural 
voilt^tr, after examining their college 
iccuidi, carefully found that a prece- 
dent hud been established two years 
ago, and they resolved hrmly to estab- 
lish the custom by emulating the ex- 
amples of their predecessors. 

The prepaj-aUous for the banquet were 
made ttiiti the most profound secrecy, 
and all through the afternoon little 

an afiair of this kind 

The class inid Its plans so well that 
jiardly a whisper reached the upper 

mittee on freshman nighr, of which 
John Marshall Barry was chairman, 
and George D. Leavens, C. A. Norton. 
Frederick W. Colby and H. F. Howe 
were members. 

The first speaker after tl:e banquet 
was George R. Mansfield. The toast- 

otWj," George R. Mansfield: "The 
faculty," John R. Eddy; "Y. M. C. A.," 
L. F. Clark ; •'Attractions of college 
life." George D. Leavens; "College 

stump speach delivered by John Mar- 
shall Baixy. 

The festivities closed, after singing by 
the- 97 quartet and a speech delivered by 
Mr Howe entitled "On the Rail." 



The class of - '97 of the Massachusetts 
iiirrioulrnral colletre held their "freshmen 
night" banquet at thp Hotel Glendower 
i;ist evening and the joy of the occasion 
was eihanced by the fact that the 27 mem- 
bers of the class had outwitted the sopho- 
mores and had com» to this city without 
molestation. The plans of the class were 
laid with the utmost secrecy and were exe- 
cuted so carefully that the upper class men 
were wholly in the dark aud had no idea 
of tlje intention of the freshmen who came 
to this city ill parties of two and three dur- 
ing the irorrtin(? and afternoon. The sup- 
per ^began at 10 o'clock and after full 
justice had been done the elaborate menu 
the speech-mfcking^ began and lasted till a 
late hour. Charles I. Goessmanu was toast- 
master and responses to the usual college 
sentiments were rijade by H. C. punter, 
George II. Mansfield, John R. ' Eddy, 
Charles A. King, John M. Barry, L. F. 
Clark, H. P. Howe, Charles A. Norton and 
Oeorge D. Leavens. The committee in

when we stop to consider that the class of 
'97 has invited the junior class to a banquet

At 8 o'clock laet night a gay and 
noisy crowd of Maes. Agr. students 
gathered in Hotel Glendower, Sijrin^- 
teld, to hold their freshman badquet. 
They had good reason to be jabilaat, fjr 
they had outwitted the "sophs," who, 
\iithont doubt, would have interposed 
every pc8sible otetacle to this bold da.

It is a tacit agrettaeup among neti'ly

Xne preparations for ths bancxu.t 
were made with the most prot'ouad aa-

little bands of freshman took the train 
tor the city so a's not to arouse thj au^.

attended an aiSair of this land, in years 
gone by. Men have bean captured and

This class, however, laid its plans so 
well, and executed them so carefully, 
that hardly a whisper reached she uppsr 
class men. 

The banquet was one cf the best that 
has ever been held in that city, and 
great credit should ba given the com- 
mittee on Freshmeu Ni^ht, ot which 
John JViarshall Bariy was chairman, and 
George B. Tjeareus, C. A Norton, Fred-

''' I ^IS with sad hearts we, for the last time, turn over the history of 
I Ninety-Six to the Index. Stereotyped and ordinary as the phrase 
may sound to other ears, to the Senior each word is fraught with 
deepest meaning. Our three years of college life have sped on wings of 
light; but each day has drawn closer the knot of friendship 'twixt man 
and man. Fraternity feeling has dropped away, personal dislike vanished 
as the mist, while o'er each other's faults true, manly friendship has cast a 
kindly veil. 

In every life, in every career, we are confronted by the inevitable Alpha 
and Omega, — the beginning and the end. At the start we look with impa- 
tience for the close, longing to throw off the duties of the present, which 
ever hold us back. Yet when the end is come, and the flowing cup is held 
to our lips, we find our thirst unquenched, and turn with saddened hearts at 
sight of the dregs which the cup of promise holds. So has it been with us : 
gladly would we turn back, now that we have reached the goal, and start 
anew that growth of brotherly love which has made our college home and 
life the happiest we have ever known. And yet, the voice of Duty and 
Ambition speaks, calling vis away, bidding us strike out manfully in the 
world's great struggle. 

But away with the present and the future; 'tis history we ask for, — a 
record that shall show the coming ones our existence here has not been in 
vain. Yes, but history is the record of events, and these are but the epochs 
in men's lives; and can we, brothers all, unveil to every eye the sweetest, 
saddest moments we have known? .Shall we speak of the deep regret 
which filled us when dear old " Bob " departed from our ranks .^ or tell the 
heartfelt sorrow shared by all when a weaker brother was called above.? 


Even now a thrill of pride goes through us as we recall the words of a 
beloved professor, telling us " Ninet3^-Six is the Banner Class" in regard 
to the Index.* The life of our first two years is but a vision now, and it 
would ill befit us, as Seniors, to recall memories of victories won and de- 
feats suffered in those days of verdant youth. After graduation, when once 
more we are united, then let those days be heard from ; let memory tell of 
the mighty wind which swept away the house builded on sand ; of old Pom- 
pey's visit to the chapel, and Billet Doux's despoiled i-ecitation room. And 
we must not forget the time when Ninety-Six rose as one man and struck 
a blow for higher education, by demanding a professor to their liking in 

There is no necessity, in closing my history, to admonish you, class- 
mates, to so work and conduct yourselves that at Commencement our Alma 
Mater shall point to us with pride as worthy representatives of the Old 
Bay State's educated sons. 

The world has need of men like you ; go forth, conquer it, and lay your 
wreaths of victory at the feet of old Ninety-Six. And finally, no matter 
where you may be, or what good or evil fortune may befall you, cherish 
ever, in your most sacred thoughts, the memory of our beloved class.

That the picture of this gentleman was omitted from the '96 INDEX, we take

De Luce. — The great I am that is to be when Clark steps out of his shoes. 
Who of us who know him will ever be able to forget those killing 
sluggers, the terrific manner in which he consumes cigarettes, 
or his military and commanding presence as, in his sergeant- 
major uniform, he marched across the parade ground in all the 
majesty of his joung manhood. It is a question with us whether 
he wears his suspenders to keep his unspeakables up or to hold 
himself down. He graced the Glee Club with his presence for 
two seasons, but his deep passionate voice and his dark dreamy 
ej'es had such a killing eft'ect on the dear girls that he was 
obliged to leave the stage, or be arrested as a dangerous char- 
acter. He chose the former, and now consoles himself with the hurdy-gurdy. We 
understand that Ward McAllister is watching him with a view of letting his mantle fall 
upon him.

ON the fifth of September last we, the third class of Wilder men, 
began our labors among the vine-clad rocks and peach groves of 
Aggie. We have shown ourselves to be men of spirit from the 
start. During the second hour of our acquaintance we held a class 
meeting, at which we elected officers and chose a committee to invent a 
class yell. In the afternoon of the same day another class meeting was 
held. Ah I then it was that the superior intelligence of our class began to 
shine forth ; a class yell was produced and adopted which was terrifying 
even to ourselves. vSince that time our short course has been undisturbed, 


save by the excitement of an occasional class meeting or a vague hint of 
a rush. 

So much for the class as a whole. As to individual worth, we rank 
well with any class in college. In the way of athletics we are ready to 
supply the demand. We have a man on the 'Varsity eleven, and hope 
to furnish two or three for baseball. We have a musician whose repu- 
tation is world-wide, — the Hon. J. B. Isham. As for the "Duke," we 
have not decided as yet in what sphere it is intended he should shine, 
but we think that he will make either a president or a prize fighter, — never 
a farmer. 

In conclusion ^ve w^ish to say that we have come here for an education ; 
that we intend to stand by the College through prosperity or adversity ; and 
when we have finished our course here, to leave upon one page of college 
history the record of a class that did its duty.

ONCE again, and, alas I for the last time, the Two-year Class of Ninety- 
Six presents a partial record of what has happened to it while it has 
been beneath the sheltering arm of Old Aggie. 

As we entered, one short year ago, with more than twice our present 
number we thought it somewhat odd, to say the least, that there were so 
few men in the Two-year Class of Ninety-Five. Little did we dream that 
before three terms had passed our class would be i"educed to nine members. 

We have taken little part in athletics, having won but one first prize ; 
but when our athletic teams have called for financial support we have been 
second to none in pledging money, and we hold the same position in fulfill- 
ing our pledges. 

We have co-operated with Ninety-Eight whenever it has been beneficial 
for either class, and we trust that the pi-esent good fellowship will remain 
intact between the two classes while we continue in college. We have been 
with Ninety-Eight on class trips, and many of our closer and more lasting 
friendships have been formed with members of that class. 

Up to the present vva'iting nothing serious has happened to us from 
rushes, notwithstanding the fact that several of the first-year men were 
willing to rush two, or even three of our men, but yielded the whole path 
when the large number of nine appeared together. 


There has been quite a change in our course of study, Mathematics 
having been dropped entirely from the second year, and Political Economy 
being substituted. This we feel is for the best, as we should haye obtained 
but a smattering of Mathematics at the most. The feeling of the class is, 
that as this is the last chance we shall eyer haye to get an education, it rests 
with us to make the most of it, that we may be able to reflect credit upon 
the Massachusetts Agricultural College whereyer we may be placed in after

In One Act. 


An Umbrella of uncertain age and ability. 

Pickup and Carryoff, t-wo members of the Junior Class in Woodland College. 

A Crafty Mouse who hides all day and dines at midnight. 

Place, the suite of Pickup in X-Y-Z Fraternity House. 

Time, a November day, 10 a. m. 


Scene I. (The study is in disorder and deserted; the steady tick of the clock 
alone disturbs the silence.) 

Umbrella. — Ugh ! no more stretching for me since that hapless honr 
when, in defending the rights of my last master, I sacrificed my seventh rib. 
Who the author of this mishap to me was I liave wondered in vain. That 
he was a big man, an adamantine man, and stung to considerable pain 
when I was bi-ought down upon him, I am aware. But where he dwells, 
and if in his wanderings he ever comes near my present abode, I am at a 
loss to know. This is, however, only one more mystery added to that 
numerous company of uncertainties which have played so prominent a part 
in my eventful life. 

(A tiny mouse rushes across the room, and using the umbrella as a 
means, reaches a hole in the wall, into which he disappears.) 

There goes the thief who found the wool of my new master's cap and 
the lining of my new master's pocket such a delicate midnight luncheon. 
Hiding since sunrise in the wastebasket, an eavesdropper to my plaint, and 
yet he passes me without one word of sympathy ! Such must be the com- 
mon fate of those who, once opulent, are forced bv time and events to 


chant the dirge of poverty. (Leans back more comfortably, as if for a 
chat. ) 

I am certainly drifting rapidly toward the conviction that T should own 
and use, even at this late hour, a monogram. With no intent of insulting 
the chemical world, it could very properly be H2O ; two parts history and 
one part ownership. 

To-day you see me, an old and rather dilapidated article, pushed into 
an obscure corner, and unheeded by my good neighbors of high and low 
degree, — Shakespeare in plaster and a pair of played-out dancing pumps. 
To the former I have made advances which might have led to friendship. 
But he, the father of " Hamlet," " King Lear," and " Othello," gazes out 
of the nearest window, and I seem to read upon his averted and set physi- 
ognomy the aphorism uttered by his matchless Portia : — 

•• In companions 
There must needs be a like proportion 
Of lineaments, of manner, and of spirit." 

This settles for me irrevocably any vague hope that I might have entertained 
resrardine a mutual exchang-e of confidence with this Bard of Avon. You 
suggest my other neighbors. Spare me ! Already they emit the odor of 
their future state, — the ragman's cart, or, still more plebeian, the ash can's 
depths. No ; even though 

" A good man's fortune may grow out at his heels," 

I refuse to drink at this fountain of wisdom facts so uncertain in their 
promise of future compatibility. 

Like a great lord fallen from his estate, I can only make my present 
existence endurable by di-eaniing of my past, and that I have a thousandfold 
better than many a title in the peerage. 

Ages ago, in Nineveh, Persepolis, and where the lotus lily made the 
midday air a sleeping potion, I followed in the train of monarchs. At the 
palace gates, before the uplifted curtains of the temples, in the public mart, 
above the heads of kings, over the veiled faces of queens, I was seen, and 
my presence marked not only me, but my associates, with the insignia of 
importance and nobility. 

The dusky, jeweled, bedecked princes of tropic Mahratta recompensed 
their worthv followers by enrollment in a brotherhood which flourished 


before the Knights of the Garter, the Iron Cross of Prussia, or the Legion 
of Honor were possible. " Lords of the Umbrella," meant the stamp of 
royal approval. 

India and Burniah knew me. Greece and Rome made me the mark of 
ai"istocratic womanhood. 

At many an Athenian and Roman wedding and festival was I, re- 
splendent in silk and jewels, placed at the post of honor, as the gay caval- 
cade wound its way in and out of classic roads, to the Temple of Venus or 
the shrine of Apollo. 

My history is the history of polite society, and on those indelibly in- 
scribed annals, the excavated treasures of Pompeii and Herculaneum, I am 
engraved, as a testinionv of the esteem of ages, for my usefulness and 

The seventeenth century saw me in Paris, — gay, witty, happy Paris, — 
the companion of princesses, duchesses, and all those who consort with 
regal beauty, kingly rank, and princely appointments. 

Then I traveled to England, and oh, what a jolly life I knew there 
with that rare comrade of comrades, rollicking Jonas Hanway ! We w^ere 
chums for thirty odd years. Rain and sunshine never found us parted, and 
Fleet Street looked upon us as necessary elements in its spectacular life. 

Some harmless critics dubbed us freaks, but this redounded to our 
glory, and we prospered beyond our fondest hopes. Even to fai'-off 
Bahamas our fame spread, and its king, in compliment to me, proclaimed 
himself to the world by the title of " Monarch Who Reigns Over the Great 
Umbrella-wearing Chiefs of the Eastern Countries." This tribute, mark 
you, vyas paid to me less than a score of years ago. 

Hanway has gone to his rest, merry Dryden has sung his last ditty in 
my honor, practical Sangster patented his final contrivance for my greater 
usefulness, and Crefeld and Lyons placed to-day among the mighty centers 
of manufacturing because of my existence. 

Therefore, Mr. Shakespeare, when you, with your tragedies, comedies, 
and sonnets, peopled with might}- heroes, clever wits, and poetic fancies, 
lay the flattering unction to your soul that you have influenced, pleased, and 
elevated a world for three centuries, I here, robed only in shabby gentility, 
inform you that I can honestly count my ancestry from the days contem- 
poraneous with the mummies of the Nile.

The Freshmen^s Woe. 


'Twas Friday night just after tea, — 
The gang all tired as tired could be, — 
The moon shone forth in splendor bright. 
When Ninety-Eight started to spend the night. 

Then — run, ye Sophomores, run ! 
Run all day and run all night. 
While you follow the Freshmen in their flight. 

Then — run, ye Sophomores, run ! 

We went by fence, and brook, and wall ; 
Through meadows broad, 'neath maples tall ; 
We soaked with mud our tired feet. 
But were refreshed by sap so sweet. 

The old farmhouse we reached at last ; 
O'er the orchard fence we silent passed ; 
There, near the barn, securely stored. 
We saw the Freshmen's big buckboard. 

We hauled it quickly from the yard. 
By windows bright and door unbarred ; 
And then the road we swiftly gained. 
Where Tommy's horse was safely reined. 

Now down the road we homeward speed, 
Of driving fast there is great need ; 
If the Freshmen learn of their great loss. 
They'll start in pursuit with another horse. 

Onto the campus the good crowd steals, 
Unloosens the nuts and scatters the wheels ; 
Then round the chapel softly run. 
And coming back behold the fun. 

'Tv^^as near the pleasant hour of four 
Ere any Freshman closed his door. 
Their hopes were gone, their strength was spent ; 
To pay the bill took their last cent. 

Then — howl, ye Freshmen, howl ! 
Howl all day and howl all night. 
For the Sophomoi'es followed you in your flight. 

Then — weep, and shriek, and howl !

Stone Chapel, 

/Iftassacbusetts Bgricultural College, 


Sept. 33, 1895. 

Dear Sister : It is nice to be able to use paper like this with 
Massachusetts Agricultural College on it, don't you think? and I'll get 
some envelopes with a picture of the stone chapel on the outside, if you 
like. It is a big thing to belong to such a college as this, and be a " man 
among men," and I feel that I'm growing every day. 

By the way, when you write, speak of the class as "Ninety-Nine," 
not as " Freshmen." It's the custom, I find, and the other is so flat and 
meaningless. A fellow has to prove his worth here and show his class 
what is in him. The best place I have yet found in which to do it is in 
the class meetings. We have them frequently, and you can't fancy how 
glad I am that I was president of our debating society in Boston. So 
vtany times, if I look out for them, I can find chances " to rise to a point 
of order," or something like that, you know, and if only so many other 


fellows wouldn't do the same thing and make such noise and confusion, 
the class would soon find that I know how to run a meeting, and I'd stand 
some show for class president next year. 

The first of the year we had a president ^ro tem.^ the son of one of the 
professors, and he didn't know anything about meetings, and we used to 
have very interesting times ; but the man Dutcher, who was elected after- 
vs^ai'ds, isn't so bad, and it gives me less show. If I don't get elected 
president next year, I'll strike for a place on some of the college papers. 
Lots of men on them don't know so much as I do, and I know I could 
write editorials for the Aggie Life. 

You say papa complains of my expenses. The laundry rates are very 
high hei^e, though I try hard to reduce my bill by wearing a sweater a great 
deal of the time. It may be expensive living here, but think of the society 
I am in. I have been introduced to the great poet, Goessraann ; and even 
President Goodell and Professor Canavan smile at me when I meet them on 
the campus. I hope to make the acquaintance of the Japs and the Chinese 
student. Warden. Our class has men in it who are going to be famous 
soine day, and I shall be proud to have people say of me, " He graduated in 
the Class of Ninety-Nine." Two of the fellows, I really believe, will write 
things, when they grow up, that will be as good as those Albert Ross books 
I used to steal from you ; and we have a man called Maynard who is a reg- 
ular crank on the solution of the "Negro Qiiestion." 

I am joining a good many societies and things. It doesn't cost much, 
and I can have the whole list printed in the Index. I am a private in the 
battalion, a member of the Y. M. C. A., the N. H. S., the W. I. L. S., 
the Whist Club, the Chess Club, the Boarding Club, the Agricultural So- 
ciety, the Prohibition Club, the Bird Club, the Football Association, the 
Baseball Association, and the Eye Glass Club. How is that for hustling.'' 
Next year I am going to get into the Owl Club. It's a secret society, 
so don't give me away. 

I'll have to stop now and get ready for football practice ; I shall make 
the college team sure. 

Your loving brother, 

Geo. F. Keenan. 

P. S. Please tell father to send fifty dollars at once. g. f. k. 


The Shaving of '*Q:' 

Within the dormitory once resided 

A swarthy Freshman, green but somewhat stout, 
Who did a wager make to raise a beard withal, 

As has ah-eady met your ears, no doubt, — 
Not knowing the unwritten law of college 

Forbade his wearing such a thing about. 

Amazed at such illegal undertakings. 

Full soon there met some Sophomores selected, 

Who there resolved to bring to sudden ending 
This hairy scheme so foolishly projected. 

Or cause an instant need of several gravestones 
O'er Freshie's scattered limbs to be erected. 

Meanwhile a warning is conveyed to Freshie ; 

Of raising beards he's ordered to beware. 
But he, undaunted, uses mutton tallow, 

And by his household gods begins to swear 
That he himself will cause a need of mourners 

If any night he hears them on the stair. 

Alas for Freshie's rattle-headed swearing ! 

That very night he's roused from peaceful dreams 
Of East Street chips and maple-sugar parties 

By sound of feet and sudden lantern gleams, 
And hands rough grasping to prevent his struggles : 

He wildly strove, and then gave in, it seems. 


*' Where is your razor, friend?" a deep voice whispered. 
" Steady ! No joking if you would be saved." 
The victim in a trembling voice made answer, 
Realizing that at last he must be shaved, 
*'It's on the bureau ; the small one is the sharper." 
And then the blackguard even lather craved. 

A few swift passes and the %vork was ended, 

Roughly but quickly as it was begun. 
Into the darkness had the owls all vanished, 

While he who had endured but not enjoyed the fun 
Could hardly tell were they ghosts or angels, 

Until at morn he saw what thev had done. 



Our College Library^ 

THE enlightened Egyptian understood the true import of a library, 
when, thirty-two hundred years ago, he carved over the entrance to 
his great collection of books this inscription, "The Healing of the 
Soul." This idea can only be carried out when not only the latest but the 
best works are to be found on its shelves. Feed the mind with trash and 
mental deformity ensues. " Gyf to ye folke ye beste and moche of it and 
they will stumack no thing els," is as true now as when penned in the days, 
when Bacon lived and Shakespeare wrote his immortal tragedies. 

The library of the Massachusetts Agricultural College was started in 
the spring of 1883. Previous to that date a few books, numbering approxi- 
mately one thousand, but including United States Reports and many works 
of little practical usefulness, had been stowed away in what is now the 
reading room in North College. There had been no increase for a number 
of years, and the books lay — for the most part uncalled for — on their dusty 
shelves, in what might well be termed a state of "innocuous desuetude." 
In that year a proposition was made to the President to classify and cata- 
logue all books, provided that one hundred dollars be appropriated for the 
necessary expenses. As that amount could not be spared, it was then asked 
that the old debts standing on the treasurer's accounts might be transferred 
for a library fund. This was granted, and appeals to the delinquents 
resulted in bringing in several hundred dollars. The work then commenced 
in earnest, and under the faithful efforts of Lewis C. Leary, of the Class of 
188=^, was completed before Commencement. At the meeting of the 
alumni held at that time, a committee consisting of James H. Webb, '73, 
Henry Hague, '75, and Herbert Myrick, '82, was elected, whose duties 
were thus defined, — "to endeavor to improve and enlarge the present col- 
lege library, by representing to the alumni and all friends of the college 
the necessities of this work, and soliciting their aid." The editor of the 
New England Homestead^ with characteristic energy, flung himself into 
the enterprise, and scattered his circulars broadcast among the alumni.* 

* See '84 Index, page 88. 


The appeal was not in vain, and two years later we find this report of the 
Alumni Library Fund, June, 1886 : — 

Total amount subscribed ........ $1,419 60 

Total amount paid in ........ . 1,065 60 

Total amount paid out ........ 1,064 39 

Balance in treasury ......... 121 

Subscriptions due . . . . . ' . . . . 354 00 

Total assets .......... 355 21 

Number of volumes contributed by alumni .... 851 

Number of volumes in library ....... 55O03 

It should be stated here that very early in this movement the Wash- 
ington Irving Society voted to transfer its library to the college library, and 
very nearly five hundred volumes were received from this source. 

To provide permanent and proper accommodations for the future, 
President Greenough went before the Legislature, in 1884, and asked for the 
present Chapel Library building. The corner stone was laid, with appro- 
priate services, on a bleak, wintry day in the fall of the same year, Nov. 
6, 1884. Beneath the corner stone were laid a copy of the original charter 
of the College, an '82 Index, containing the pictures of the Presidents, a 
copy of the last Cycle^ and several daily papers. Adjourning to the old 
chapel,* or what is now the room set apart for advanced work in the labo- 
ratory building, speeches were made, and an exceedingly entertaining 
address delivered on the early history of the College, by Charles L. Flint, 
Secretary of the Board of Agriculture. An interesting feature of the occa- 
sion was the reading of a letter received that day from John C, Cutter, '72, 
then in Japan, sending his hearty good wishes and a check for one hundred 

An effort was now made to secure a permanent endowment fund of 
$10,000; and conditioned on the raising of this was the promise of Her- 
bert S. Carruth, '75, of one thousand dollars' worth of books, in ten annual 
installments of one hundred dollars. President Greenough did not, how- 
ever, succeed in raising the entire amount, and the sum now on deposit and 
slowly accumulating, is $9,165.39. It is hoped that in three year's time it 
will reach its maximum and yield a fixed income. Among the largest con- 
tributors were Mrs. S. A. Floyd, $500, in memory of her son, Charles W. 

* See '85 Index, page 88. tS 


Floyd, 'S2 ; William Knowltou, of Upton, $3,000; Charles L. Flint, of 
Boston, $1,000; Eliznr Wright, of Lee, $1,000; and Henry Colt, of Pitts- 
field, $500. The remainder has come partly from the contributions of the 
alumni and partly from the annual growth fi'om interest. 

From such small beginnings our present library, now numbering 
16,909 volumes, has gi'own. It may be interesting to analyze this number 
and see how it is distributed. Agriculture and botany naturally take the 
lead, followed by literature and histoiy, and these by entomology, political 
econom}^, and science and chemistry. It is impossible, within the narrow 
limits allowed, to give a complete classification, but the following table will 
show some of the more important groupings. Be it understood that the 
numbers represent, separate titles, and not volumes. Agriculture, for 
example, has 1,020 titles, but it numbers 3,164 volumes ; horticulture, 237 
titles with 940 volumes ; and the others in like proportion.

Walter Mason Dickinson* 

THE subject of this sketch was born in Amherst, Mass., April 3, 
1 8^6. After graduating from the public schools of his native 
town, he entered the Massachusetts Agricultural College in Sep- 
tember, 1873. In January of his Junior year he received a cadetship in 
the Military Academy, through the late President Seelye of Amherst, 
then a member of Congress. Mr. Dickinson entered West Point, April 
24, 1876, and w^as graduated June 12, 1880, immediately receiving a com- 
mission as Second Lieutenant, U. S. A. At the time of graduation he 
w^as first Lieutenant in the Battalion of Cadets. 

Lieutenant Dickinson joined his troop at Fort Sill, Indian Territory, 
on Sept. 30, 1880, and passed the following winter in the field against 
Captain Paine and his "boomers," who were trying to enter Oklahoma 
Territory. In the fall of 1881 he was ordered to Fort Cummings, New 
Mexico, where he remained neaidy two years. During that time he was 
in the field, and in the latter part of April, 1882, was in the fight of 
Steins Peak against the Apache Indians under Chief Loco. This may 
be considered the beginning of the Geronimo Campaign, as the Indians 
escaping from this fight and a subsequent one with the Mexican Regular 
Troops, formed a part of Geronimo' s band. After another campaign in 
the spring, Lieutenant Dickinson was transferred to Fort Leavenworth. 
Here he attended the School for Officers, and after graduating, in 1885, 
was appointed Instructor in Signaling. At Fort Leavenworth he was 
married to Miss Mattie E. Otis, daughter of the late George L. Otis, of 
St. Paul, Minn. In September of the following year he was promoted 
to a First Lieutenancy in the Fourth Cavalry. In October he was ordered 
to Fort Hira-chuca, Arizona, and a year later to Jefferson Barracks, Mis- 
souri, on special recruiting duty. From here he went, in October, 18S9, to 
Fort McDowell, Arizona, but was immediately transferred to Fort Bowie 
as Post Qiiartermaster. His next post was Fort Walla Walla, Washing- 
ton, where he remained until ordered to the Yosemite Valley, Cal., in 


August, 1891. In November he was transferred to the Seventeenth 
Infantry, and joined his company at Fort D. A. Russell, Wyoming, the 
following February. On July ist he was ordered to the Massachusetts 
Agricultural College. 

Since entering upon his duties here he has worked energetically, 
making his department one of the best in college, and raising the Bat- 
talion to a standard of excellence never before attained. It is mainly due 
to his efforts that decided improvements have been made in the buildings 
and equipments of the Military Department. A disciplinai'ian in discharge 
of his duty, he is socially one of the pleasantest of men. As a gentleman, 
professor, and soldier, he commands the respect and esteem of all. 




Canavan (to student who has just broken a pane of glass) : "I fear 
that was intentional."

They're out. 

Sergeant Clark (on dinll) : " Carry arms, please." 

Leavens (Class President) : " Gentlemen, the total number of votes

Bros, eight. You will be obliged to vote again." 

Emmy: "Mr. President, I insist that Mr. J. W. Allen is entitled to 
one half the proceeds of the firm, and should be declared elected." 

So declared. 

Norton: "T'see?" 
Keenan : "Nit." 

Barry: "What do I care whether they are vitis labrusca or vitis 
psuedopodia? All I want is a good bag." 

Student from Amherst College (looking at the lettuce in the cold 
frames at the plant house) : "Did you raise these cabbages this year?" 

Freshman (examining recitation programme): "Does c-1 stand for

Peters: "Yes, and h — 1 stands for the mathematical room."

Hymn of the Owl Club. 

Freshmen in their beds are quaking, 
Hearts are throbbing, knees are shaking. 
For they know the Owls are waking 
Soon to batter down the door. 

While the bolder ones are saying 
That the Owls are meet for slaying, 
Some beneath their beds are staying 
With an artificial snore. 


Now the Club the room approaching, 
Deep-laid plans are quickly broaching, 
For the Freshmen have had coaching 
Such as all have had before. 

For they've barred the door with planking 
And themselves will have the thanking 
If they soon get such a spanking 
As they'll dream of evermore. 

Now the door moves inwai'd slowly. 
And the Freshman, meek and lowly, 
Begs, by all things good and holy, 
That they will not make him sore. 

" See the mighty host advancing," 
Freshman in his shirt is prancing. 
While the crowd is fast advancing 
Toward the pond's deserted shore. 

Look ! they seize the trembling victim, 
In the pond they rudely dip him. 
Back to college quickly whip him. 
Once more to his chamber door. 

Brethren, we are now disbanded ; 
" Prex " Goodell stood single handed, 
And the crowd in limbo landed, 
Saying, " Boys, these nightly raids are o'er ! " 

And although we love to mind him, 
And in our hearts w^e hate to blind him. 
Still we often weep behind him 
That the Owl Club is no more.

A True Story* 

IT was one cold evening last winter that we were lounging about the fii-e 
up in Foggy Vaughn's old joint, relating college experiences, Shaw 
had just finished telling of the prodigious amount of ice he had lately 
cut at a South Amherst social, when, as we were recovering our breath, the 
door opened, and in strode the Old Settler. 

This eccentric individual, who always made himself at home in a 
group like ours, appropriated the only remaining chair in the room — a 
stack of agricultural reports. He had hardly seated himself when some 
one asked for his latest. Now, Pelham didn't like to have his freshest story 
called his latest, and if it were not for the fact that he had to bear many 
things which he didn't like, he would have left the crowd in disgust. 

" Well, boys," said he, " it don't amount to much, but it's true, and I 
can show you the dagger." 

"Dagger? What dagger? " we all exclaimed. 

"Well," began Jones, "to make a long story short, it was like this. 
You see, over there on the hills it is dead slow, and in order to keep up 
with the clocks and not go to seed, I take my little trip every so often down 
to the city. Last week I went to Boston, and, by Jove, it is the toughest 
place I ever saw ! North Amherst City isn't in it. Me and my friend" — 
John always said " me and my friend" even up to the time he was gradu- 
ated, although no one ever saw the friend — " thought we would go through 
the shmis this time ; so on leaving the train we made for the North End, 
and of ends, that is the endest of them all. Niggers, Italians, butchers, and 
more niggers were about all the people one could see. It was a cold day, 
and so my friend said, 'Come, old man, let's have something.' Now, 
although I never drink about here, when I get away from home I'm a 
swiller. So up we went into a dive, and ordered hair restorer for two. 
Now I'm coming to the interesting part," said Jones; and we all leaned 
forward, and you could have heard a dumb-bell drop. " Right in the 
middle of the room," Jones went on, "there were three Italians and a 
white man playing cards, and although I don't want to brag, I am some- 
thing of a poker player myself.'^ 

"Yes, yes, Jones; go on." 

" Well, ^vhat do you think? One of those Italians had a pack of cards 
that he was drawing aces and flushes from to beat the cars. Now, I'm no 
meddler, and always mind my own business, but I can't see a man cheated 
at cards ; so without saying anything I went up to the bar, and after taking 
my drink, sat down at a table and wrote on a slip of paper, ' Friend, your 
opponent has a second pack of cards.' Rolling this in a wad I got up, and 
as I walked by him dropped it into his lap ; but the poor fool, instead of 
reading it quietly, held it up before his face, and had hardly caught a 
glimpse of it before the bad Italian grabbed it, and quick as a wink had told 
his comrades. I made a break for the door amidst a shower of stilettos 
and oaths, one of which struck the wall just above my head, and another 
just grazed my face and stuck fast in a beam. I pulled them both out 
and in a flash hurled one back, hitting one dago in the arm — I used to prac- 
tice, 3'ou know. For fear that they might follow me I held on to the other 
stiletto, and I've got it up in my room now as a reminder of my narrow 
escape. That's all, boys." 


Who is It? 

It was a gallant soldier boy 

Who walked 'bout Aggie bold, 

And smoked the best of cigarettes 
That keeper Allen sold. 

The wind would blow around your gills 
Whene' er he passed your w^ay ; 

A scholar he, with learning great, 
Would keep ten men at bay. 

His glasses, when astride his nose. 
Would make him look so wise ; 

A coffin tack between his teeth 
Would just complete his guise. 

An actor now he fain would be. 

Take some romantic part. 
Or slay the villain in a play. 

Or break some maiden' s heart. 

Though fast at times to pick a fight 

On an unpretentious cause. 
We like him still with all our heart ; 

W^e'll overlook his flaws.

An Autobiography* 

AT the earnest solicitation of the Ninety-Seven Index Board, I, Julian 
Styles Eaton, peer of the Class of Ninety-Eight, here pen a short 
sketch of my life. I was born in Nyack-on-the-Hudson. Of my 
early history I know very little, but mother says I was a good baby. How- 
ever, as I was too young to have any decided opinion of myself, which, 
ho\vever, I have acquired since, I will pass over a few years with bare 
mention that I grew long and waxed exceeding green. I was noted for my 
abilit}' in certain lines.* 

In the fall of 1894, in the full verdancy of my youth, I came to the 
Massachusetts Agricultural College, where I spent the first year teaching 
Ninety-Seven how to run her class affairs, and calling the Seniors and Pro- 
fessors by pet names, and doing many other things of equal merit. It was 
I who rode home the bronco from the sugar eat. It was I who spoke those 
famous words, "Ninety-Six, do your duty." It was I who held off the 
gallant Sophs with one little bean-shooter. It was I who struck out Cheney 
three times. Numerous other things have I done which, from my inborn, 
modesty, I leave untold. 

Like Gaul (gall) of old, I am divided into three parts : legs, tongue, 
and wind, but principally wind, — the whole surrounded by a gas-tight 

My legs have been the means of promoting my higher growth. They 
saved me from drowning in a certain basin of water, and also won for me 
the honor of wearing M. A. C. on my sweater. 

My tongue, though many times sprained in football practice and in 
playing tennis, is now in a healthy and vigorous condition, having com- 
pletely recovered from the attack of lunacy and subsequent melancholy 
received on the night of May 31st, and is now fully able to speak for 

My wind is a veritable Asiatic monsoon, everlasting, perennial, and 
unsubdued. It bloweth upon all occasions and subjects, and is truly my 
constant companion. It has made my second tenor vie with the Ocarina 
Club and the accordion of Isham. It was the means of making the Glee 
Club what it is — a howling success. 

Thus I have outlined a brief history of myself. I am now a Sopho- 
more, and what I shall be when a Senior, God only knows !

Military Oration* 

The Spirit Shown by the Soldier; Ought it not to 
be Rewarded? 


ONE hiuidi-ed and twenty years ago our country being under the tyr- 
anny of an English ruler, was inspired to overthrow this monar- 
chical government, and to gain for itself, if possible, the title of a free 
country. What was it but patriotism and love of country that prompted 
this action of the colonies, a desire burning within each individual to stand 
against the exactions of an English ruler, and to show that, though governed, 
they were not to be made slaves, working here or there, and doing whatever 
might be commanded, without any rights whatever? 

But it is not this early struggle that now claims our attention, but rather 
that of a later day, when our country, which our forefathers had so bravely 
fought to save, was threatened with disunion, when the North and the 
South were arrayed against each other in bloody battle, bringing disaster, 
and ruin, and countless loss of human life. 

It was at this time that our country passed through the agonies of bitter 
trial. On the one hand we had a few States striving to uphold the Govern- 
ment in the interests of freedom, on the other a " solid South," as it is often 
called, in which slavery was the ruling power. Do we wonder that when 
President Lincoln called for troops to maintain the Union, so many loyal 
citizens left home and friends, whom perhaps they might never see again, 
to face the foe and to secure for our country perpetual union and prosperity. 
But what was it that prompted this vast army of men to risk their lives in 
fighting for our country? Was it not the same spirit that animated the 
Revolutionary fathers, — a spirit of patriotism instilled into the minds of all ? 

They foresaw the long, weary marches, the days and nights passed 
without rest and ahnost without food, when footsore and weary they pushed 


forward they knew not whither, only knowing that they were to fight for 
their country's welfare, and, come what might, to face the foe to the bitter 

Many a march was undei'gone and followed by fierce battle when hour 
after hour, without rest or sleep, they pressed forward against the foe. Did 
they falter? No. Onward, was their motto; hei-e was some steep cliff 
they must climb, there some fort to be captured. Can we be surprised that 
besides those who were killed in battle so many died from sheer exhaustion ? 
Ho-w was it in the battle itself? Did one part of our army falter and an- 
other go forward? No. Shoulder to shoulder the men stood, side by side 
they fought, with this spirit of patriotism and love of country ever present, 
spuring them on, here to a final charge, there to a task apparently impossible. 

Can you not see the soldiers as they were marching amid the roar of 
cannon and the whizzing of musket balls, ever struggling onward over some 
fallen comrade, but still clinging to that one hope of union and prosperity? 
How many of us to-day would undergo such hardships and privations? 

But the question now comes to us, ought not the soldier who survives 
to-day, the man who left his home and fought so bravely for our country, to 
be rewarded ? 

Does it not require a strong will, a firm determination, to go forth to 
such perils as these ? To run the risk of being captured and thrust into 
such prisons as Andersonville and Libby, there to remain perhaps one week 
and perhaps a year ! Ask yourself these questions, and then say whether 
the veteran soldier ought not to be i^ewarded ? Think of the cruelty, the 
starvation, to which the soldier was subject in that Southern dungeon at 
Andersonville ; man after man was carried there and compelled to stand or 
lie during the day in the sand, beneath that burning Southern sun, without 
even a shelter for his head. Think of such cruelties as these, people of 
Massachusetts, and answer the question, shall we reward the veteran soldier? 

Think of the many times that the soldier was compelled to face the 
storm of battle ; did his courage fail, or did he march onward, ever rallying 
around the stars and stripes as they floated above his head and ever shouting 
for victory and union ? Look back to the pages of history and read the 
result of such battles as Antietam, Gettysburg, and Petersburg, and this 
question will be easily answered, and the veteran soldier will be held by all 
in most grateful remembrance. The world looks back to that four-years' 


struggle and admires the courage and detennined ^vill of the boys in bhie ; 
but does it give them their due? Are they remembered with gratitude, or 
are they allowed to live receiving but little notice because of the toils and 
sufferings that they endured? 

If we could but arouse the people of our country to the truth of these 
facts of history, there would be no need to ask questions of obligation and 
dutv to our surviving veterans. 

Many monuments have been erected to the memory of such men as 
Grant, Sherman, and Sheridan ; but they were leaders. True it is that 
their leadership won many a hard-fought battle ; but what would they have 
done without the soldiers who stood back of them ready to do their bidding ? 
What ^vould they have done without the perseverance and determined will of 
the private, who all day long carried his musket, and, weary and worn, lay 
down at night perhaps never to see the sun again ? Shall we not reward 
such men as these, the veteran soldiers of our country ? 

The Grand Army of the Republic will soon be an organization of the 
past ; old and gray-haired are the few^ remaining veterans fast becoming ; 
death will soon take them away. 

Let us young men of to-day do what we can to assist the veteran sol- 
diers in the declining years of their life, remembering that motto which is 
so often found above the resting places of the fallen heroes : — 

" For what he was and what he did, 
Remember him to-daj." 



Pop^s Account of the Lecture, 

Late one night as we were dozing in our chairs there was a knock at 
the door, and in popped Frank, and this is what he told us : — 

" By crackie, man, you ought to have been down to the lecture to-night. 
By hoopo it was great, great, I tell you. Yes, sir, man, it was a coocoo, 
and no doubt of it, man, no doubt of it. He was a . 

" Did he upset the people much? " 

" Why, man, you bushwhacker, you, by hen, he was a genuine Mohawk,, 
and if he didn't put the boots to them I hope to cackle. Yes, good gracious, 
you bet he did ; he spoke on — on — on the — you know — you know what I 
mean — er— -er Foreign Immigration. And, by hen, he went at them head 
over Connecticut." 

" Well, what did he say? Shut up and tell us about it ! " 

"Why, man, keep quiet, keep quiet and I'll tell you. I can't reniem- 
ber all he said — ought to have taken notes, that's the way; yes, mamma, 
might be able to give you something then— but he made the people roar, 
by whiskers, he did. And there was a little fat man down in the corner, you 
know where I mean, that when there came a little joke that no one else saw 
he would laugh like blazes, yes, sir, man, he was a picture, and that galoot 
of a Sherman kept saying 'Put him out,' ' Put him out; ' and the poor little 
jigger heard him. Oh ! it was great stuff; yes, sir, cure a cold in two weeks. 

" O say, bother it, I thought I remembered a little thing he said, but I'll 
be teetotally tickled if I haven't — no — ^by cat — now I know what it was ; he 
said all that a foi-eign immigrant had was an oesophagus and an — an — er — 
you know what I mean — an alimentary canal." 

" No ! no ! Socrates, you mean a diaphragm." 

" Oh go on ! You're way off — you're trying to jolly me. I wont tell 
you now, but by ginger, boy, it was a corking lecture — yes, sir, a ." 

" Easy, easy. Pop ! Don't get frisky. What did he say? " 

" O chestnuts, chestnuts, man! " (Exit).

Massachusetts Agricultural College* 

College Colors:

College YeU: 
Rah! Rah! Rah-Rah-Rah! A! G! G-I-E! Rah! Rah! Rah-Rah-Rah! 


LOOKING back over the past year, and noticing the changes made, 
we can truly say that it has been a year of progress. The improve- 
ments brought about in certain departments have been very marked, 
and have resulted in raising the standard of the whole College. 

The greatest change has been made in the Mathematical Department, 
which is now headed by Professor Metcalf, whose ability as a theoretical 
and practical engineer and mathematician cannot be doubted. He is ably 
seconded by Professor Hasbrouck. Besides the regular course in higher 
mathematics in the Senior year, this department now offers a course in 
Civil Engineering, which has, thus far, proved very satisfactory to those 
who have elected it. 

At the consolidation of the State and the Hatch Experiment Stations 
under the name of the Hatch Experiment Station of the Massachusetts 
Agricultural College, with President Goodell as director, three new de- 
partments were created : Veterinary, Foods and Feeding, and Botany, with 
Dr. Paige, Dr. Lindsey, and Dr. Stone as their respective heads. Profes- 
sor Metcalf has succeeded Professor Warner as the head of the Meteoro- 
logical Department. Dr. Paige being in Germany, the chair of Veterinary 
is filled by Eugene H. Lenhert, D. V. S. 

Among the improvements made about the college buildings is the re- 
moval of the pine grove and horse shed which it surrounded. The road 
to the new barn now runs over the spot where they stood. This not 


only improves the general appearance of the grounds, but also gives a 
convenient and direct way of reaching the barn. The former site of the 
farmhouse and old barn is as level as nature ever intended it should be, and 
no one ^vould realize that two of the main buildings of the College were 
ever located there. The insectary has received an addition several times 
larger than the original building, and has been supplied with apparatus 
which places this department still further to the front in the line of ento- 
mological research. In the southwest end of the drill hall a gallery has 
been erected capable of seating one hundred persons. West of the drill 
hall and connected with it is a large gun shed, which shelters the two new 
rifled guns recently added to the equipment of the military department, and 
other things from the hitherto overcrowded armory. The building also 
contains a shooting galleiy sixty feet long, to be used for pistol practice b}' 
the Seniors in the winter. 

There have been several minor improvements made about college. 
Electric lights have been placed in North College, and lights now burn 
until midnight, instead of eleven o'clock, as was first tried. A fire-alarm 
box connecting with the service of the town has been put in, giving us pro- 
tection in addition to that already obtained from our own hose and ladder. 
The College is now^ connected with Amherst and all outside points by tele- 
phone, instruments having been placed in the President's office and in the 
Experiment Station, with a long-distance transmitter at the Plant House. 

A new system of excuses has been adopted, whereby every man must 
account for his absence to the professor in charge within twenty-four hours 
of the time it was incurred. This has not proved wholly satisfactory, and 
it is hoped that at sometime in the near future it will be replaced by a system 
of cuts such as is commonly used in larger institutions. 

The year has been a prosperous one for our library, already the best in 
the country in the line of agriculture and kindred science. Some two thou- 
sand volumes have been added, inaking a total of nearl}' seventeen thousand 

Perhaps the most interesting event of the past year, from a social point 
of view, was the Military Ball, which was given at the end of the winter 
term by the college fraternities. From the situation of the College there 
is necessarily a lack of social advantages, and from the success of this ball 
we are led to hope that it may be made a regular annual occurrence. 

The battalion uiidei" Lieutenant Dickinson has preserved its former 
excellence, obtained by much energetic action on his part and by the co- 
operation of the students. A day spent parading in Northampton and 
attending the exericses in Hadley commemorating the hhth of General 
Hooker, plainly showed the excellent training received by the students. A 
prize drill for a gold medal offered to the best-drilled student in the manual 
of arms caused much competition, and without doubt helped to pei-fect the 
handling of the guns. 

In regard to athletics, the past year cannot be said to have been very 
successful. Two meets were held in the Gym during the winter, and an 
outdoor meet in the spring. Although sevei'al records were broken, there 
was little competition, and Ninety-Five again won the banner with little 
difficulty. Neither the baseball nor the football teams were even moder- 
ately successful, although financially well supported. Both were hampered 
by lack of men, and much improvement can hardly be hoped for with the 
present number of students. The athletic field is progressing slowly, but 
sui'ely ; already it has lost its growth of pines, and its position can now be 
easily defined b}' its acres of charred stumps. Before many years we may 
expect to have an inclosed field which, in itself, will give a considerable 
impetus to all athletic games and contests. 

Notwithstanding the small number of students, we feel justified in say- 
ing that there has been continual progress in the advantages offered by the 
College during the year. It has passed through a period of depression, and 
it is confidently hoped that with increased inducements to students, and with 
better facilities for instruction, our institution will have little difficulty in 
very soon increasing the size of the incoming classes.

PERHAPS the last place that any one would ordinarily look for edito- 
rials is in the pages of a college annual. Filled as the book is chiefly 
with statistics and dry information, it might be better taste to cover 
these few pages with jokes, leaving all subjects of a serious nature to the 
columns of our college paper. We realize, however, that this volume will 
reach many ^vho do not see that interesting periodical, and so we have tried 
to present matters of importance in as brief and clear a manner as our lack 
of experience would permit. 

We expect that those who have any desire for the prosperity of Aggie 
will scan these pages to find the. ideas of the student body concerning the 
causes that have brought about the small entering classes of the last few 
years, and that have made so many students leave for other institutions. It 
is fully time that this matter was discussed in plain words. No matter 
what explanations may be offered, the fact remains that, although the stand- 
ard of scholarship is much higher than ever before, and that the corps of 
instructors has never been larger, the College has fevs^er students than it 
has had for several years past. Where does the fault lie ? Is it with the 
students? Point out the college in the land having an equal number of 
students, that puts forth a college paper or annual that is to be compared 
with our own ; that struggles any harder to support athletic teams or col- 
lege associations ; that shows a more commendable college spirit with so 
little to foster it. We do not wish to impute the fault to either Trustees 
or Faculty ; but it sui'ely does not lie wholly with the students. In their 
position they cannot make reforms;' they can only suggest them. 

We believe the advantages of the College are not advertised to the ex- 
tent they should be, and that what advertisements may be seen are not in 
the kind of papers that are apt to reach prospective students. The plain, 
unvarnished fact is, that there are places within a few miles of Amherst 
that never have heard of this College ; or if, in some way, a knowledge of 
its existence has floated to them, it is seldom thought of as a place where a 
good scientific education may be obtained. 


Complaint is also made of the character of our entrance examinations. 
We know that the Latin necessary to enter this College has caused students 
to decide in favor of other like institutions where only English branches 
are required at entrance. The need of more Latin for a scientific course 
than can be obtained in the freshman year, is doubted by many who thor- 
oughly understand what such a course should include. 

But after a student has passed his examinations and entered college, 
there are still many obstacles to prevent his remaining. If he is poor he 
can obtain woi^k under the labor fund. Undoubtedly many men are en- 
abled to remain in college only by this aid ; but the students who ai^e thus 
aided are few compared with those that might be if this fund were put 
under better regulations. It is all right for a Freshman to work all his 
spare time for a moderate recompense ; but after a year or two of such 
work he begins to see that he cannot materially increase the size of his 
pocketbook without working so many hours each week that he has neither 
the time nor the inclination to do well in his studies. He finds that his 
poverty prevents his obtaining the best advantages of a college education ; 
he stays out to \vork for a term, and generally never returns. We sin- 
cerely believe that a graded scale of wages for poor and deserving students 
would prove of much benefit to them as well as to their employers. 

It is the Faculty who have the most to do with making the College suc- 
cessful or unsuccessful. The object of this institution, as stated in the 
catalogue, is to give a practical education. To do this, practical, energetic 
instructors are needed. We do not wish to criticise our honored Faculty, 
for we realize how much they have done toward making the College vs^hat 
it is, but we believe that there are some members who are neither practical 
nor energetic. Their instruction is long drawn out, and seems to have in 
view only one end — to occupy the time. Such instruction cannot fail to 
cause dissatisfaction among those who are obliged to receive it. Indirectly 
Junior electives would solve this problem of how to improve certain 
branches. If students were allowed to choose for themselves the studies the 
were to follow for the Junior as well as the Senior year, there would be 
either improvement or obliteration of certain branches. It would mean 
the survival of the fittest, and we think it was a fear of this that caused a 
refusal of electives last year. 


It is this denying the students the privilege of choosing for themselves 
the studies that they are to pursue that, more than all other reasons, causes 
men to become dissatisfied, and to leave college. That Senior electives 
have proved successful cannot be doubted by any one who has noticed the 
increased interest that the Seniors take in the special branches which they 
have selected. To bring the College completel}^ out of its state of depres- 
sion and make it a success in the future, electives are needed, not merely 
during the last two years of the course, but during every year except the 
first. We understand that some of the Faculty are in favor of the latter 
plan, and that nearly all favor the former. With a two-year course, which 
takes all who care only for a practical knowledge of agricultui^e, it is 
certainly unnecessary to confine the regular students to one general course 
longer than the first year. At all events, we hope that the Board of Trus- 
tees will not be so forgetful of the future welfare and success of the Col- 
lege as to refuse electives to the Junior class next year. 

In 1S93 the first class of the Two-year Course entered college. What 
to do with it was then a puzzle which has not yet been satisfactorily solved. 
AVe do not condemn the course of study given, but we believe that, in gen- 
eral, the class of students it has attracted would be wholly condemned by 
,the student body if there were not a few good men in each class. That there 
are men of merit in this course we admit ; yet the influence of the course 
as a whole has I'esulted in bringing down the standard of the College. 
Considering that one third of the students here are men of this course, and 
that nearly all the support of the College associations rests with the remain- 
ing two thirds, — considering that the falling off in numbers of the regular 
students was almost identical with the founding of this course, and was, in 
part, caused by it, it may well be asked. Is not the Two-year Course a 
drawback and hindrance to the welfare of the College? The course of 
study itself is above repi^oach, for it is one that has been long needed to fur- 
nish farmers' sons with a cheap, practical education ; but we believe that 
for the good of the regular course, the Two-year course should have no 
connection whatever with the Massachusetts Agricultural College. 

We feel sure an improvement might be made in the system of cuts 
now in use. There are but few institutions of our size and standing that do 


not allow moi'e freedom as to unexcused absences. The students do not 
ask this from any desire to find a way to absent themselves from recitations ; 
but there are often times w^hen a student honestly feels that the period of a 
recitation could be better devoted to some other work. As college men we 
are supposed to have minds of our own, and work not necessarily included 
in the schedule. VVe know that any independence given in this line would 
not be abused, and we think the Faculty ought to place more reliance on 
the judgment of the students in regard to this matter. 

A MATTER that should receive early attention is that of a battalion 
encampment. Last year considerable progress in this direction was made ; 
a petition was circulated among the students setting forth their desire for a 
week in camp, and asking that the Trustees take the necessary steps to 
secure legislative appropriations for this pui-pose. This petition was sup- 
ported by those in authority at college, and, so we understand, by the com- 
mittee of the Trustees into whose hands it was placed. Unfortunately, 
before a bill could be prepared the time for taking up new business in the 
Legislature had passed, and it was thought advisable to let the matter rest 
tmtil the following year. 

The advantages to be derived from an encampment are evident. Lieu- 
tenant Colonel Hughes, at the annual inspection last year, after compliment- 
ing the work of the battalion, remarked to the effect that more military 
training could be obtained in a week's routine in camp, than in a year of 
drill such as is obtained in schools and colleges. 

The Government insists upon military instruction at institutions under its 
control, that, in time of need, it may know where to look for men able 
to organize and to command. For the perfection of this ability and 
for the advancement of the service, the Government sees fit to place the 
State militia in camp one week each year. In studying Military we are 
working on the same line and for the saine purpose as do the militia, and 
only b}^ some such encampment, as they have, can we hope to become 
familiar with the practical side of a soldier's life. 

At the beginning of the present college year it was suggested by a 
member of the Faculty that the fall term next year should commence two 


weeks later. This suggestion seems to us to be a good one. At present 
the 3^ear begins much earlier here than at other colleges, and with only the 
advantage of enabling the football team to go into training so much sooner. 
During the warm, muggy weather which frecjuently prevails here in the 
first part of September, very little studying can be done, or even entered 
upon. This fact was especially noticeable this year; there was a general 
feeling of restlessness among the students, and little actual work of any 
value was accomplished before the ist of October. There is an old saying, 
" Well begun is half done," which might well be applied to our studies, as 
it is evident that a term's work begun in an earnest, interested manner, 
will produce greater and more valuable results than if it is begun carelessly 
and half-heartedly. If the opening of the fall term were put off two weeks, 
the weather at the end of that time would be much more favoi-able to the 
recommencing of studies ; and while the number of hours devoted to recita- 
tions would be smaller, the amount of ground covered would not neces- 
sai-ily be lessened. There is no doubt that the students would appreciate 
the extension of the summer vacation. To many it would mean a better 
opportunity for working out their expenses, and we believe that all would 
come back in better condition to take up the work of another year. 

In conclusion we will not give, as have our predecessors, words of ad- 
vice to the new Index Board, for probably they would not be taken. Each 
Board of Editors has to "work out its salvation for itself," and by its own 
efforts gain the knowledge and ability necessary to publish its volume of the 
Annual. Such has been our experience. For the benefit of the new 
board, however, we would suggest that hereafter the various associations 
and clubs which have full-page half tones in the Index shall bear the ex- 
pense of making their respective plates. This will result in making the 
book more of a college publication, as it ought to be, besides aiding the 
small classes of the next two years in meeting the necessarily large expense 
of getting out a good book. 

Laying aside all class feeling, we believe that every true college man 
should be anxious for the success of the Index, and we wish to do all 
in our power to aid the new board in the work which it has already entered

Lecture in Market Gardening. 

MARKET GARDENING, unlike ao^riculture, is not a science and an 
art ; it is a business. The man that goes into it must be a pusher. 
He must know how to clean a shovel and hoe, and he must know a 
pumpkin grove from an oyster bed. The successful man should also know 
how to use a trowel. Pears' soap, and cascara compound. 

If one starts his ranch near the city, he has the advantage of knowing 
whether the fashion demands round or square turnips ; while if located in 
the country, one need not keep his whiskers trimmed nor his boots blacked. 
For city marketing horses ai^e generally to be preferred to oxen. Crops are 
variously marketed by the box, pile, or original package. All vehicles should 
be washed every day, and put in the ice chest. Irrigation is essential to the 
successful culture of garden crops. Water is generally used in connection 
with it, althovigh air pipes might be employed. Never pay more than 
twelve and one-half cents per hour for help. It is best to locate near our 
Agricultural College, as it is the only place where labor may be obtained at 
this price. 

Taking up the crops in their alphabetical order, we first come to 
Asparagus ; Latin name. Asparagus officinalis . 

This vegetable stands our climate w^ell when it does not freeze. It is 
used to take the place of milkweed greens, and as a fly trap in country 
residences. It is a rank grower, and the large, white stalks are tapped on 
the southwest side by means of a knife with a fish-tail blade ; and the gray- 
ish-white juice which comes out is boiled down, making a delicious "jell." 
In certain countries of Europe it is also used for making a white wine. 

In canning, care should be taken to screw down the covers tight, as the 
canned fruit is readily attacked by shot-hole fungus {sj)ororia) . This can 
be prevented by pvitting it up with an equal part of Bordeaux mixture. 
When thus prepared it will keep for an indefinite period. Insect pests — the 
most troublesome is a species of blue ant, with brown spots on its wing 
■coverts. At the time of this writing* no effectual remedy was known. 

Next on our list is the Cabbage. This vegetable is raised in beds. In 

spreading up the sheets care should be taken to (the sound of the 

chapel bell indicates that the period has ended). We will continue the 
lecture at this point next time.

A Reverie, 


Metawompe !* Metawompe ! resting quiet in sunset's glow, 

Do your crags and crannies many stories told by chieftains know ? 

How thev hunted through your caverns, shot the gentle, timid deer, 

Smoked the peace-pipe round the camp fire, 

Bidding farewell to the year. 

How the white men came with wampum from their far-off eastern home^ 
Gave it to these red-men traders for your rugged forest dome. 

Had you speech to tell the story, you could make it rich and bold ; 
But your rocks are bound in silence, and your lips can ne'er unfold. 
It must be the mountain wanderer, rambling through your galleries rare, 
Who will sing vour cherished stories round the fireside's cheerful glare. 

* Indian name for Mt. Toby.

The Emporium. 


We've all heard of Allen Brothers, 
And the joint they claim to run, 

Where they juggle bottled sodas, 
Rake in handfuls of the "mon." 

Here the demon of intemperance 

Finds he cannot hold full sway. 
Here the bums are wont to gather, 

At all hours of night and day, 

Cheney, Keenan, and Bill Eaton, 

Courtney, Coleman, also Pat, 
Two-year men in goodly numbers. 

Little Doc. and Sammies . 


'Tis the joint that Lull opposes — 
"We've no time to run a store;" 
Thus he often speaks in class room. 
While the boys slip through the door. 


Here Doc. Stone once bought his breakfast. 
Crackers hard and cookies stale ; 

Guzzled down, to clear his pharynx. 
Birch beer, pop, and ginger ale. 


So these Brothers, bang up merchants, 

Specialize on various pops, 
Will sell you things — cash or credit — 

From marbles down to knock-out drops. 


"Of all God's gifts to man, divine or human, 
The noblest, best of all, of course, is woman; 
Let him who wants the best one bear in mind 
It takes a splendid man to mate that kind."

We hope the following; pages will receive youf 
careful attention* They contain the business cards of 
firms that we know to be thorougfhly reliable; all 
others have been excluded* 

The success of any publication of this nature is 
necessarily due in a great measure to the advertisers. 
Our business manager has invariably met with nothing 
but the most courteous treatment, and in many in- 
stances with unsolicited aid* 

We are indebted to these firms for their generous 
patronage, and commend them, one and all, as leaders 
in their various departments.

A Few Facts 





1st. We do exclusively a 

seed business. 
2d. We handle no cheap 

grade of seeds. 
3d. We grow more of our 

seeds on our own farm 

than any other seed house 

in New England . 

Testing seeds at all seasons of the year is a specialty with us, as we 
have more land covered with glass than any other house in this part 
of the country. 

5th. Crops grown on contract are visited every year by Mr. Rawson or 
the manager when they are growing, so that we may know they are 
what we represent in every instance. 

6th. Our business has nearly doubled in the last three years, which shows 
conclusively that our seeds have given thorough satisfaction, and this 
season we have been obliged to add two btories on our building to enable 
us to handle our increasing business. 

7th. Mr. Rawson is a Market Gardener, and knows what a Market Gar- 
dener wants. 

8th. We issue the most complete Seed Catalogue in New England. Sent 
free on application.

Massachusetts Agricultural College. 

A rare chance to obtain a liberal and thoroughly practical education. 
The cost has been reduced to a minimum. Tuition is free to residents of the 
State. An opportunity is olTered to pay a portion of expenses by work. 

Three courses of study are offered: a two years' course in agriculture 
and kindred sciences; 2. four years' course leading to the degree of Bachelor of 
Science ; and a graduate course leading to the degree of Master of Science. 

Instruction. The courses of study as at present constituted include : — 

1. Agriculture, theoretical and practical, stock-breeding, drainage and 
irrigation, special crops. 

2. Botany, including horticulture, market gardening, arboriculture, care 
of greenhouses, types of cryptogamic orders, and histology. 

3. Chemistry. Practice work in the laboratories, qualitative and quanti- 
tative analysis, inorganic and organic. 

4. Zoology, Entomology, the preservation of plants from destructive in- 
sects, Human Anatomy, Physiology, and Hygiene. 

5. Veterinary Science. The hygiene, anatomy, physiology, and diseases 
of domestic animals, giving the student requisite knowledge for the care of stock. 

6. Mathematics and Physics, including practical work in surveying and 
road making. Meteorology in its relation to agriculture. Electrical engineering 
with problems, and practical work with instruments. A complete electrical 
plant furnishing light and power for the college buildings. 

7. English. Care is given to the study of English language and literature, 
that the student may be able to understand his mother tongue, and use it cor- 
rectly and efficiently in the expression and enunciation of thought. As a means 
to this and other ends, Latin is studied for one year. 

8. Modern Languages. French and German are taught so as to give the 
student means of acquiring a sufficient mastery of the languages to have access 
to scientific authorities of France and Germany. 

9. Political Science. The course provides for instruction in political econ- 
omy, that a knowledge may be gained of those established laws of the business 
world which control the market, finance, and the production and distribution 


of wealth. Especial attention is given to the economics of agriculture. Consti- 
tutional history is studied, that the duties and privileges of the citizen may be 

10. Military Science. Instruction and drill in military tactics are required 
of each student, unless physically debarred. 

Advantages. Facilities for illustration include a working library of 
17,123 volumes, properly classified and catalogued; the State collection of 
birds, insects, reptiles, and rocks of Massachusetts, with many additions ; the 
Knowlton herbarium of 10,000 species of named botanical specimens ; the 
1,500 species and varieties of plants and types of the vegetable kingdom, cul- 
tivated in the Durfee plant-house ; the large collections of Amhersf College 
within easy access; a farm of 383 acres, divided between the agricultural, 
horticultural, and experiment departments, embracing every variety of soil, 
oifering splendid opportunities for observing the application of science to the 
problems of agriculture. 

Worthy of especial mention are the laboratories for practical work in 
chemistry, in zoology, and in botany, well equipped with essential apparatus. 
A chemical laboratory for advanced students has been provided. For illustra- 
tion of veterinary science a clastic model of the horse and other additions to 
the museum have been secured. The Durfee plant-house has been recently 
rebuilt and greatly enlarged, and a new tool-house and workshop provided for 
the horticultural department. For the agricultural department, a model barn, 
containing the best facilities for storage of crops, care of horses, cattle, 
sheep, and swine, and management of the dairy, including also a lecture room 
for instruction, is now completed. 

Electives. Out of fourteen courses provided for the Senior class, twelve 
are elective. 

Expenses. Board in clubs is about ^2.50 per week, and in families 

$3.00 to $5.00; room rent, $8.00 to $16.00 per term; fuel, $7.00 to $13.00 
per year ; washing, 40 to 50 cents per dozen ; military suit, $15.75 ; books at 
wholesale prices ; furniture, second-hand or new, for sale in town. 

Requisites for admission to the several courses, and other information 
may be learned from the catalogue, to be obtained by application to the
