'* If a.ny of us spea.k nvell, a.ppla.ud him ; 

If any speak ill, applaud him too/' 

VERY book has an introduction, and it would not do for 
Volume XXX. of the Index to omit that important opening, 
although we are all well aware that few pause to read the 
preface. In fact we ourselves have never read one till it be- 
came necessary to do so, in order that we might know what 
an introduction really is, and what it should contain. 

It was solely with this purpose in view that we perused, with great 
care, the opening pages of twenty-nine volumes of the "Aggie Annual," 
and you can imagine with what astonishment, and we may say bewilder- 
ment, we found the introductions almost identical in each. We were 
bewildered to know why this was so : was there some unwritten law 
which we must follow in writing our introduction, that in it we must boast 
of our many fine points, of our originality, and of our superiority over all 
other similar works ; and must we copy that time-worn twenty-nine times 
repeated saying, "We have anticipated for you a little surprise; viz., its 
enlargement, new form of cover, and improved general appearance," or, 
*' We wish to call particular attention to the originality of our work" ? etc. 
Now, originality Is the great feature of our work, and we cannot be 
an originalist and a copyist at the same time ; so we will forbear the use 
of such expressions, and simply say : We have tried to please ; we have 
tried to arrange our statistics in as interesting a manner as possible ; we 
have tried to bring to your notice the improvements about college and 
the progress which our Alma Mater has made during the year ; we have 
also tried to recall to your memory the many little happenings, — the little 
incidents, accidents, and slips in a manner pleasing to ever}^ one. We 
have endeavored to tell you something about a/l the prominent men in 
college ; and if by chance the name of one has been omitted who conscien- 
tiously feels that his prominence entitles him to mention, to him we say, 
Forgive us ; it was an oversight, due undoubtedly to our lack of experience. 
Trusting we will receive the hearty support of our fellow- students 
and the friends of the College, and hoping that our efforts will be appre- 
ciated, that our defects will be overlooked, we present this — the Thirtieth 
Volume of the Index. 

PI)ilip 5- Ha^broQCt). 

HE one to whom this publication is dedicated, in apprecia- 
tion of his earnest zeal in behalf of our College, was 
born in Libertyville, Ulster County, New York, in 1870. 
Philip B. Hasbrouck received his first education at the New 
York State Normal School, in New Paltz, and from there 
entered Rutgers College, New Brunswick, New^ Jersey, in the fall of 1889. 
While in college he pursued the scientific course, and at the beginning of 
his sophomore year he elected mathematics and civil engineering, which 
studies he made his specialties during his entire course, and in which he 
obtained a very high standing. His college social life was much benefited, 
in that he was a member of the Chi Psi Fraternity. After bemg graduated 
he was secretary to the director of tlie Maryland Agricultural Experiment 
Station; a position which he continued to hold until April, 1895, when he 
w^as appointed to fill the vacancy of Assistant Professor of Mathematics in 
our own Alma Mater, and in June following he was elected to the same 
position. During the summer of 1897 he took a special laboratory course 
in physics at Cornell University, that he might the better fulfill his position 
here. On June 30, 1897, he was married to Miss Carrie Van Valin. 

In Professor Hasbrouck we feel that we have one who is ever exerting 
his utmost to further the interests of our College, and also the interests of 
the students. Since he has been among us he has placed his department of 
Mathematics upon that firm basis where it never rested before. As an ex- 
ample of his untiring efforts we have a newly equipped physical laboratory. 
In the preparation of this room, and obtaining modern apparatus for its 
equipment, he has spent many a valuable hour that we students might have 
better facilities to study nature's laws. Whereas, before we had practically 
no physical laboratory, we now have one which is no very mean affair. 

Though uneventful his life has been, 
And not among the great he's seen, 

(All cannot be so blessed,) 

As one among the rest, 

He serves his God the best, 
By serving him without complaint 

In this, his lowly test.

Cla^S History. 

NOTHER yeai" has passed, and for the last time Ninety-Nine 
submits her history. It is a typical autumn afternoon. The 
soft October breeze slowly wafts the red and golden leaves 
by the open window, while a hazy, dreamy atmosphere, 
peculiar to this season of the year, prevails. All is still save 
for the occasional chitter of a flock of birds, who, from a neighboring elm, 
appear to be soliloquizing upon the newlv-hoisted "fair weather" flag 
which floats from the tower. 

Nature, arrayed in fairy dress, is at her best ; and with such surround- 
ings is it strange that the historian, while attempting to review the happen- 
ings of the past, falls into a reverie ? 

Again we are prospective Freshmen, alighting from the Amherst train, 
preparatory to taking those dreaded entrance " exams." Again that prod- 
igy, John Marshall Barry, looms up before us. Again the lengthy Soph 
fi-om Nyack points us to the drill hall when we inquire for the mathe- 
matical room. Again imagination carries us through the usual Freshies' 
trials ; but we still survive. 

We soon find ourselves full-fledged Sophomores, for " every dog has 
his day" (except, perhaps, the one Sam found under his bed with a load 
of tinware attached to his posterior extremity). At this point recollection's 

biograph portrays many livel}- scenes. How brilliantly there reflects against 
the horizon of our memory the glorious bonfire on Clark Hill, while even 
now there almost falls upon our ears the jingle of fire bells, the rattle of 
hose cart, and the incessant screeching of the crowd as they hurry up the 
grade. The scene changes. Mountain Day, with the Greenfield Gazoo' s( ?) 
accovmt of the " iVmherst wild Indians." Doubtless the correspondent of 
that illustriovis journal, after witnessing our progressive football practice on 
the Shutesbury heights, wished to compare our team to the Carlisle eleven. 
Be that as it may, we are justly proud of our records in athletics, having 
never been defeated in football, baseball, or polo. The rope-pull story has 
been told by others. 

But we must break the fascinating charm of reverie, for space does not 
allow us to here enumerate many events which memory cherishes ; which 
have united pleasure with instruction, and that go to form the multitude of 
" good times" which should be found in ever}^ college course. We indeed 
realize that 

" Pleasures, like flowers, may fall to decay, 
But their roots perennial may be." 

At the outbreak of the war several of our classmates enlisted, and have 
pi'oven themselves to be an honor to their class and college. 

Wright, after standing as one of our peers for three years, suddenl}^ 
left us for higher spheres of action. C. W.'s genial countenance is no 
more with us, and Stacy's familiar war whoop, echoing from Pelham hills 
to Mt. Warner, is a thing ol the past. As we turn the corner by South 
College we miss the " plunkety-plunk" of Courtney's banjo; and who can 
think for a moment that we will be apt to forget Dutcher? 

This communication would be incomplete if it failed to mention a 
certain pair of wheels which pla}' an important part in Ninety-Nine toward 
making that somewhat indefinite article — class history. Not that we boast 
of possessing more wheels than any other class, but all will agree that those 
two red ones should not be overlooked. It would seem superfluous to state 
that they are well known by ever\'body between Denmark, Me., and Mill 
Valley, Mass. ; and as the rovings of these unruly bicycles have been the 
source of much amusement at the Seniors' table at the boarding house, and 
as Melvin and "Fat" have sworn vengeance on all who talk of tying the 
'•red rovers" to a cable that would reach only to Hallock Street, it be- 
hooves the historian to refrain from giving particulars or mentioning names. 

In this connection it might be well to add that our class is thinking of 
publishing a treatise composed of the discussions held over Ninety-Nine's 

dinner table during the past year. Considerable information in regard to 
Ancient History, "Italian bedbugs," and " game wardens" will be found 
in this comprehensive work. "Fweddie's" sayings will be a prominent 
feature of this publication. His map of the road from Amherst to South 
Hadley, with contour lines and other helps, will be of especial value to the 
botanist or bugologist who wishes to visit the " notch." 

Chapin, the Galileo of our number, is said to be studving planets and 
other celestial objects these moonlight evenings. He believes that East 
Street is an advantageous field for such work. 

Should we review the virtues and failings of our other prominent men, 
the reader might form the mistaken idea that our serious moments are 
"few and far between." As classmates we realize that we have but a 
few more weeks together, and the very thought tends to draw closer the 
bonds of friendship. Soon — too soon — we turn from the pleasantries of 
college associations to the grave responsibilities of life. It is human nature 
to look ahead. What has the future in store for us? The answer is, what 
we make it. Our fortune we hold in our hands ; our future is largely 
determined by what we are to-day. Let us hope that we have made such 
good use of the time spent at old Aggie that we may be able to apply our- 
selves to life's task wherever the path of duty may open. With the best 
of wishes for our college mates, and with a loyal spirit toward Alma Mater, 
we make our bow. 

Our history for the last time is told ; 

Now Ninety-Nine listens to Fate's decree. 
As it echoes the phrase of the poet old, 

'Tis this we hear, " Better days await thee."

Cla53 Mi5tor>(. 

O give an accurate history of such a noted organization as the 
Class of Nineteen Hundred, would be a task of too large 
proportions to be undertaken with the limited space allowed 
for such articles. Though the allowance is enough in which 
to chi^onicle the doings of most classes, it is with many fears 
that I undertake so brief an account of the doings of this class. At most 
I can only touch upon a few of the things that have helped in gaining for 
us our wide reputation among the students, the Faculty, and even the out- 
side world. Our reputation has been hard earned, and in some cases ex- 
travagantly paid for. To explain the cause of some of our deeds would 
also be too deep a subject to be taken up at this time. Some, I fear, would 
have to be explained by too hard Mathematics, others by the department 
of Political Economy, and still others would be far beyond the limits of 
the subject of Law. As to the effects, they would fill volumes. Who 
has not felt the effects of our deeds of power and influence? The Sopho- 
mores can certainly attest to the firm stand we took last year on the subject 
of "rushing." We occupied the entire campus, leaving no room for their 
mighty men, who wisely retired, leaving us in undisputed possession. Maybe 
no one has had the opportunity of more forcibly realizing the powerful 
po-sition we hold in the affairs of the College than they had that night. 

Our Faculty have been very much interested in our doings. They have 
from time to time taken up our different undertakings and most thoroughly 
analyzed them, consequently requiring quite a little of our attention. Many 
a social meeting have they enjoyed as a direct result of our labors ; and 
though the time of these meetings might not have been the most propitious 
for them al"ways, the subject would be of such promising interest that a good 
attendance was invariable. Many of our good intentions, we are sorry to 
say, they did not appreciate, which was a fact that we regretted exceedingly. 
One instance in particular forces itself back to my memory, and will serve 
to illustrate. It was the time that we gave one of our best-loved professors 
a day off, after he had labored so long and faithfully to instill into our minds 
the principles of that " noblest and most healthful occupation of man." 
If the germ which resulted in our action had not been drilled into our 
brains by one whose skill in the raising of crops is above question, an ob- 
server might have thought our action the result of his sowing the seed of 
knowledge on unadapted soil. It was, however, a mistake for which we 
honorably took the blame, and suffered even after we had been pardoned. 

As to our work in the class room, we have only to refer you to any of 
our professors for an assurance of the high standard maintained by the Class 
of Nineteen Hundred. Our numbers also attest to our standing as students. 
Few classes have reached their Junior year and had their numbers dimin- 
ished because of poor standing less than we have. The class has decreased 
slightly in numbers, it is true, but not because of poor standing. They have 
left for various reasons ; some to enlist in the army of their country, and two 
have even enlisted in the army of those who have put aside this single and 
lesser life, and taken to themselves another and a better half. Thus some 
have made soldiers for the present, and some are making soldiers for the 
future. Of the men whose patriotism told them that it was their duty to 
■give up their studies here at Aggie, and enlist in the service of their country 
at her call for volunteers, five of them were of the Class of Nineteen Hun- 
dred. These classmates, we expect, will soon be back with us, and then 
who will have the honor of giving orders when we again have the pleasure 
of the " double quick ? " 

Among the many good times that we have had together, two, at least, 
our Mountain Days, will not soon be forgotten. Many an envious eye fol- 
lowed us on that bright spring morning as we started in a barge with Pro- 
fessor Smith for Mt. Tom, as the other classes were going to chapel. We 
drove to the Easthampton end of the range, and leaving our barge, walked 
the length of the rocky heights and down to the Mt. Tom Station, where 
we again met the barge and drove back. Our second trip we took in the 


fall, with Dr. Stone, to the Notch, then to the Prospect House on ]Mt. 
Holyoke. We collected many specimens on these trips, though not all 
of a botanical nature, and we had lots of sport. 

In athletics we are decidedly strong, furnishing the 'varsity football 
team with nine men last year and a good representation this year. We are 
well represented on the baseball team, and also in the other athletic 

Of class contests we have won a generous share. Few classes have 
had the honor of winning two rope-pull contests, though by good material, 
hard practice, and the help of Ninety-Eight, we have had that honor. The 
first was a hard-earned victory, but in the second contest we succeeded in 
getting all except seven feet of the one-hundred-foot rope. Our teani \vas 
even preparing to get up and ^valk off with the rope when time was called. 
In football we were beaten by Ninety-Nine, in spite of the remarkable play- 
ing of '■' Fat" Adams, but we easily won from Nineteen Hundred and One. 
We have also lost but one baseball game, — that with Nineteen Hundred and 

Not only have we subdued the Sophomores, taught the Freshmen, con- 
trolled the athletics, and, in fact, run things in general, but more important 
and lasting than these, we have with each year drawn those bonds of friend- 
ship closer and closer between ourselves, overlooking each other's faults, 
and putting aside personal feelings, giving way from these dislikes to unity 
of class and purpose. 

The years that have passed so rapidly also forcibly remind us that the 
time is coming only too soon when we shall have to leave these surround- 
ings, which we have learned to love so well, and the classmates with whom 
in these happy years we have become so thoroughly bound together, and 
go into the world to prove the value of these years of labor in our course at 
Aggie. Let us, then, in the short time remaining do our best, that we may 
be fully prepared when the time comes to take up our life work, and show 
what a course of training^ at M. A. C. is reallv worth to a man.

O-^ss History. 


S the world floats around its orbit it impresses its history on 
the minds of men ; so as another year is added to the life of 
our College, the history of the Class of Nineteen Hundred and 
One is for the second time placed before the readers of the 
Index. After closing a very successful season at football, — 
which has been treated so ably by my illustrious predecessor in the last 
Index, — we turned our attention to basket ball. Though unable to arrange 
any class games, at least we succeeded in infusing into our fellow-students 
an interest in this exciting game. And we hope that the sluggish brains of 
.the present Freshman Class will be stirred by a like enthusiasm, so that our 
prospective victory at basket ball will not be too one sided. 

As the gentle breezes of spring made themselves felt over the land and 
baseball resumed its sw^ay, w^e realized the capabilities of our class when we 
found we had no less than five men on the college nine. Soon after we 
organized our class team, and vainly endeavored to get a game with the 
Amherst High School. Our whole energies were now let loose upon the 
Sophomores. They paid no attention, however, to our challenge of June 
9th, and of course we claimed the game by default. Then, in the exubei"- 
-ance of our joy and cussedness, we decorated the roof of the Drill Hall with 


the numbers 1901, in white paint. This work of art, which brought forth 
much applause from a great number of the students for its neat and sym- 
metrical appearance, aroused the jealousy of the Faculty. One prominent 
professor was heard to think, "This dastardly outrage is entirely uncalled 
for, and should receive the most severe criticism of the department." The 
next day the Sophs, goaded on by the whole College, challenged us to a 
game of baseball, which we won, 10-2 ; and the morning after our victory 
we awoke to find our numbers deadened by three coats of red paint. 

Prexy made us a very polite little speech in Chapel — complimented us 
on our artistic abilities, and requested us not to do it again. 

It now became a question of who is running this College, anyway. 

Our ire was aroused, and we painted in our numbers once more; this 
time in the class colors, olive-green and orange. 

Then came a great diplomatic war. Prexy marshaled his forces, and 
battle after battle (in the shape of Faculty and class meetings) was fought. 
Our youthful frames were unable to hold out against the tried old veterans 
of the Faculty, and Brooks was sent to ask for terms. A treaty of peace 
for three years was signed, and, besides, we were compelled to pay a heavy 

On June 17th the survivors celebrated the end of the war by a grand 
banquet held at Cooley's Hotel, Springfield. 

On our return to college this fall, but two men failed to answer to their 
names; one is serving his country, the other is serving his church. 

At this time of the year our thoughts naturally turned on the unsophis- 
ticated and homesick Freshmen. We took a great deal of trouble to show 
them certain tricks about rushes. We even spent an hour one evening rush- 
ing them off the campus. We stood in the entry of North College and po- 
litely told them they had " better go 'round." They followed our advice 
implicitly. We find the Freshmen very obedient and obliging : obedient 
inasmuch as they always put out their lights at ten o'clock at the request of 
a Soph ; they are very obliging as is shown by their kindly lending us 
their rope for the season. 

We had been told by many upper classmen that fate was against an 
odd-number class winning a rope pull. We have demonstrated by our 
victory over Nineteen Hundred and Two the utter fallacy of this fatalistic idea. 

The history of the Class of Nineteen Hundred and One would be in- 
complete without personal mention of some of its members who have lent 
their enei-gies to its success. Notable among these there is Mr. George R. 
Bridgeforth, the orator of the South. Mr. Bridgeforth's crowning success 
in the oratorial line was his defense against the slanderous accusation of 


being false to his class. This great orator not only defended his honor on 
the chapel stagehand gained the unanimous decision of the judges, but at 
the same time accomplished the difficult feat of breaking up a Y. M. C. A. 

Another celebrity of the class is Professor Dana, of the iSlathematical 
department. The professor's talents are too well known to need mention, 
but when military drill once more swoops down upon us, the Freshmen 
will begin to learn what it is to have the master hand of Private Dana laid 
heavily upon them. 

One more famous member of a famovis class is Brooks H^O., X. Y. 
Z., A. S. S. No man need go in ignorance while Percy is around. He 
is an oracle rara avis^ and acts as a check on the different professors that 
happen to come under his bane. Professor Cooley once said to a candi- 
date to the Sophomore Class, "Read Brooks's Notes on Agriculture ; he 
knows more about the subject than I do." 

It is plain 1}^ seen from our past career that we will be a shining cloud 
in the future. Our natural modesty restrains us from eulogizing ourselves, 
but I'll leave it to Professor Babson if we are not the best Sophomore Class 
in college at the present time.

Cla^v? History. 

HE omnipresent Freshmen of the Class of Nineteen Hundred 
and Two arrived at Aggie on the 7th of September, 1898, in 
all the verdure with which Freshmen classes are supposed to 
be endowed. Before we had been on the college grounds 
many hours we had heard a great deal, from the patronizing 
Juniors, about a certain awe-inspiring Owl Club. From what we could 
learn, from the subdued whispers concerning it, we decided that it was 
some sort of a powerful organization, the secrets of which we would learn 
in a few nights ; but the nights have lengthened into weeks, and the weeks 
into months, and now how great is our disappointment to find that the 
kindly Sophs have decided not to permit the Fi-eshmen to enjoy the 
greatest pleasure of their stay at Aggie ; namely, the initiation into the "an- 
cient and honorable" Owl Club. Alas, how unkind is Fate! How hard 
our lot ! 

The " disgusting" (?) but unavoidable rush was, then, the first thing 
to occupy our attention. In this the Sophs had the experience on their 
side, gained from observing the manner in which the Class of Nineteen 
Hundred had pushed them off the campus a year ago ; and in consequence 
they won the rush, though it took a long time to subdue the plucky Fresh- 


men. We lost again in the rope pull, the Sophs winning by a margin o£ 
five feet; all of which, and more too, they obtained on the drop. This 
seems a small amount of rope for the Sophs to get, as they had not only 
experience, but also greater weight on their side. We are represented on 
the 'varsity football team, and we are confident of svipplying the baseball 
team with some good material in the spring. We already hold membership 
on the Glee Club, Choir, and other organizations of the College, not for- 
getting our honorary director on the Hash House Board. 

Although, perhaps, we do not rank quite so high as the kindly Sophs 
as regards brute strength, still we are not wanting in mental ability, as ap- 
pears from the following : " Gentlenien, after looking over the entrance ex- 
amination papers of this class, I can safely say that I have the greatest ex- 
pectation of its becoming the most promising class I have ever had." 
(Extract from one of Professor Babson's oi-ations.) Though not having 
received any verbal testimony from our beloved mathematical instructor, we 
feel confident that he could easily pay us as great a compliment if not greater. 

But seriously, classmates, let us ever keep before us the object for 
which we came here, for there is not one of us who did not come here with 
the same object in view ; namely, the preparation for future usefulness. 
And wherever we are or whatever we do, let us conduct ourselves so that 
we may be an honor to our class, the College, and the State, which is doing 
so much to make good citizens out of each one of us.

SUCCESSFULLY managed institution should sliow some 
marked progress and improvement each succeeding year. 
The past year of our College has truly been one of decidedly 
marked progress in its various departments, and the improve- 
ments have indeed been many. The English department 
has improved its course of study, especially in the branch of Rhetoric. More 
original work is to be done in the form of essays and other w^riting, and there 
w^ill be more required reading and reference work than has been done here- 
tofore. This has already shown its effect, and the department feels repaid 
for its labor. The study of Astronomy has been added to the list of Senior 
electives, with Professor Ostrander as instructor. This study fills a long felt 
want among students. Geology will be taught by Professor Flint. Herein 
lies an opportunity to become well acquainted with both the chemical and 
the physical side of the study. It will follow closely the study of Mineralogy 
as taken in the Sophomore year, making the course very complete. Owing 
to the extremely short time allotted for the study of Physics, the study of 
Mechanics, formerly taken up in the fall term of the Junior year, has been 
transferred to the winter term of the Sophomore year. The entire time 
allotted for Mathematics in the Junior year will be devoted to the subjects 
of Light, Heat, and Electricity. 

In the spring of 1S97 a special class in Chemistry was introduced by 
Dr. Charles Wellington, with Mr. C. A. Peters, '97, as instructor. The 
object sought was to help those intending to take up Chemistry to advance 
more rapidly than is possible in the regular course, as well as to assist the 
already advanced student. The course was thoroughly practical, personal 
instruction being given. A number o£ men availed themselves of this fine 
opportunity, and derived a great deal of benefit for so doing. The special 
course was continued through the summer, under the name of the M. A. C. 
Summer School of Chemistry. It was a decided success, and we sincerely 
hope this special work will be repeated this year. 

The series of eleven short winter courses, introduced for the first time 
last year, proved a success. Although the attendance last winter was com- 
paratively small, the prospect of having a larger class this year is good. 
These courses are thorough, practical, and complete, and, undoubtedly, if 
better known would attract a larger number of students. 

There has been no change in the Faculty. All are continuing to do 
their best work to further the interest and welfare of our College at large. 
We extend our heartiest wishes for their success and prosperity. 

In the way of improvement, our buildings have received marked 
attention. North College has had the usual repairing, together with some 
remodeling. The new bathrooms and lavatories are now complete. Hot 
and cold water may be had at all times, making it very convenient for 
students rooming in the dormitory. The reading room situated in this 
building is to be fitted out with heating coils, so placed as to heat the room 
uniformly. The one stove is quite insufficient to do the required work. 
A new training room has been fitted up in the basement of South Col- 
lege, with rubbing table, lockers, hooks, benches, and other necessities. 
This room is greatly appreciated by all, since in the past such a place 
suitable to properly carry on this part of athletic training has been un- 

The Physical Laboratory has formerly been situated in the Chemical 
building. The fumes from the chemicals, which, in spite of the greatest 
care, entered the room and cases, proved very injurious to the delicate 
instruments. The question of how to avoid the damage presented itself. 
This has been nicely settled with the construction of a new and more mod- 
ern laboratory, distinct and apart from the others. The President's recita- 
tion room, ample and large, has been used for the purpose mentioned. 
The new laboratory has been newly equipped with a complete stock of 
physical and electrical instruments. A new dynamo has been set up in the 
basement of North College, with wires connecting it with the storage bat- 

teries in the new room. With the new equipment a better course in 
Physics is offered, and there being more time given for instruction, the 
practical side of Heat, Light, and Electricity will be better expounded and 

A special appropriation of $i,ooo has been assigned to the Chemical 
department for the purchasing of new supplies this year. 

A magnificent new Veterinary building, with hospital connected, is in 
process of construction. Since so much attention is given to the study of 
Veterinary in this institution, and because the work of this department 
has been carried on for past years in extremely small and crowded quar- 
ters, the Trustees and other officers of the College set themselves to work 
to obtain the necessary funds for a building that would be a credit to any 
university in the country. This handsome building is described on another 
page. The Veterinary Museum has heretofore been crowded into the 
Zoological Museum. The new laboratory will contain apartments spe- 
cially set aside for specimens, thus relieving its overcrowded neighbor. 

Another new building is nearing completion, in which the work car- 
ried on will be imder the direction of the Hatch Experiment Station. The 
best methods of dairying for profit and progress will be studied, experi- 
ments will be made, and the best results given to the public. The building 
will be up to date in every particular, as v^^ill be the apparatus used for 
carrying on the work. It will add to the splendid collection of buildings 
already on the college grounds, as well as to the strength of the Hatch 
Experiment Station located here, the authoritative experimental work of 
which is so v\^ell known in the United States and Europe, 

Our athletics have been greatly improved during the past year. On 
account of the shortage in time we had no intercollegiate meet, but the 
interest was not lacking in the least. Many of the men were out training 
with as much vigor as would be displayed preparing for a meet. The 
Baseball Team was supplied with a complete nev/ outfit of suits, shoes, 
jerseys, and so forth. It was a pleasing sight to see our "Aggies" in 
position for play, arrayed in their new uniforms. As the score shows, our 
team played much better ball last spring than during the preceding year. 
There ^vas no rant among the players ; each man did his best work for his 
college. The excellent quality of the teams played is an important item 
worthy of mention. The fact that all the opposing teams represented 
good colleges of high standing, shows our College is recognized as holding 
a prominent place in athletics with them. We are very desirous of pushing 
to 'the front the importance of athletics as a necessary factor in connection 
"with every institution of learning ; and it is very gratifying to all to know 


that a great improvement has been made along these lines. The matter o£ 
having an athletic field was strongly advocated at the mass meetings held 
in the Chapel from time to time. This has been a constant theme for dis- 
cussion ever since the proposition was made, and it is needless to state that 
this College should have an athletic field that will do her credit. We have 
no reason to be other than proud of the Football Team. The strongest 
and best-developed eleven for years represented the College this fall. This 
is partly due to the excellent coaching of Dr. Weeks, formerly quarter-back 
on the strongest team the University of Pennsylvania ever had up to 1897. 
Dr. Weeks won the heart of every player by his courteous manner, 
authoritative decision, and splendid generalship. Entirely new formations 
were used with good effect, especially the famous "guards back" forma- 
tion, showing very clearly that proper instruction is a first and important 
thing to obtain in order to show what our men can do. New supplies were 
furnished this year. The Football Association was well supported finan- 
cially, and the enthusiasm will undoubtedly increase as the years go by. 
The team has been well cared for in every respect as regards their training. 
A dining table set apart for the players was obtained, and special food was 
prepared for them. The fine new training quarters made the afterpart of 
practice a source of delight, for never has our team had better massage 
treatment. But there is one drawback, however, that presents itself in this, 
sometimes, as well as in other colleges. This year it has been rather hard 
to get a second eleven out to line-up against the 'Varsity Team. When 
this obstacle has been removed there will be little left for criticism. The 
quality of the games played has been of the first ; and much credit is due 
to those in charge of affairs. We wish to expi'ess our best wishes for 
success to those who will represent their Alma Mater on the gridiron in 
Ninety-Nine, as well as to those in authority.

How often have I sung her charms

TI)e Veterinary Laboratory and 
stable Hospital. 

HE accompanying illustration is a representation of the new 
Veterinary Laboratory and stable Hospital which is no.w being 
constructed on the college grounds, south of the drill hall. 
The buildings will cost $35,000, which was appropriated by 
the last Legislature. 
The Laboratory will be a two-story brick building, with a French roof 
and brownstone trimmings. Passing through the front entrance there is 
a vestibule which is eight by five feet. At the right joi the hall is the main 
laboratory, extending the entire length of the north side, which is sixty by 
twenty-three feet. Near the middle of the room is a large laboratory table 
w^ith sinks, and at one side there is to be a lai-ge thermostat, built of brick, 
provided with close-shutting iron doors, which is to be used for the cultiva- 
tion of organisms which thrive only at a temperature very near that of the 
human body. In the rear of the room are store closets and a balance room. 
The interior of this room will be made of natural brick, covered with 
Wadsworth, Howland & Co.'s white finishing enamel. Opposite each 
window a table will be placed which will accommodate two to four 
students, and enough tables to accommodate from twenty to twenty-five 
students working at one time. At the left of the entrance is the 
■office and private laboi-atory of the professor of the department, and in 
the rear of the hall is the lecture room, which will accommodate forty 
students. At the left of the lecture room on the south side, completely sep- 
ai-ated by a brick wall from the rest of the building, is a room for small 
animals, a toilet, and storeroom. Like the laboratory, they are to be built 
of brick, finished in white enamel, and asphalt floor. Between the hall 
-and the lecture room is an elevator, which runs from the basement to the 
attic. Back of the office is the open stairway leading to the second story, 
-and to the basement, which contains a storeroom, heater, workshop, and a 
hallway leading to the rear door. On the second story is a chamber for 
the janitor of the building, located on the southeast side, a private lab- 




oratory over the hall, and another one on the northeast side. On the north 
side, over the laboratory proper, is a photographing room, a dark closet, 
and over the lectui-e room is the Museum. The building will be heated by 
a combination hot-water ventilating and heating apparatus. Fresh air will 
enter the rooms about eight feet from the floors through the wall register, 
and escape through a floor register on the same side and opposite corner, 
and passing through ducts into the ventilating stack in the center of the 
building, which is five by seven feet. The workshop will be provided 
with a water motor, to furnish power for lathes and centrifugal machines. 

The Hospital barn, which will be of brick, with brown-stone trim- 
mings, will be located exactly fifty feet in the rear of the laboratory. The 
main part will be two stories, with an ell extending south and west one 
story, and a one-story ell extending west. At the right of the main door is 
the ofiice, and at the left is the grain bin, hay chute, and sawdust bin. The 
rest of the room is used for stalls for horses. In the ells are the dissecting 
room, rooms for poultry, dogs, cattle, sheep, and pigs, and two isolating 
rooms eight by eighteen feet, which will be used for experimental purposes. 
The different sections are so separated as to prevent the speading of any 
disease, and each section will be provided with the best ventilating, heating, 
and lighting ajjparatus that can be obtained. 

Prof. James B. Paige, who has charge of the veterinarian department 
of the College, is a graduate in the Class of 1SS2, and of the Montreal Vet- 
erinary College in 188S. In 1S90 he became Professor of Veterinary 
in the College, and has served faithfully in that position ever since, doing 
all in his power to improv^e the veterinary department as well as the College 
itself. In 189=5 and 1S96 he was absent in Germany, where he studied in 
the veterinary school at Munich, under Professor Kitt, and also in the medi- 
cal department of the University of Munich. Professor Paige has made a 
special study of different plans of veterinary buildings, and he believes that 
the buildings to be erected ai'e to be the most complete of any in this covmtry 
or Canada. The architect is E. A. Ellsworth, of Holyoke, a graduate of 
the College in the Class of 1871. It is through the untiring efforts of Pro- 
fessor Paige that this valuable addition to the College has been obtained.

When came the nation's call to arms, we thought 

That war's relentless hand would hold afar 

Its iron weight from us. Alas ! the scar 
Is now within our hearts; we ne'er knew aught. 
From out our number one brave soul was sought 

To die a hero's death. No time can mar 

Our memory of him ; nor e'er debar 
The lesson that his glorious death has wrought. 

A soldier firm and true was he; and one 
Who knew the worth of careful discipline. 

With smile and welcome hand for all, and mind 
E'er filled with brightening thoughts, he was a son 
Of Massachusetts. Thus he died within 
The heat of battle, and left his all behind. 

Herman Babson, 

, ALTER MASON DICKINSON, son of Marquis F. and 
Hannah Williams Dickinson, was born at the family home- 
stead — the first house on the right to the north of the Agricul- 
tural College — on April 3, 1S56. As a boy he attended the 
primary school at North Amherst, and later the grammar and 
high schools of Amherst. He entered the Agricultural College in the Class 
of 1877, and remained nearly three years. It was his desire to enter the 
Naval Academy at Annapolis, but upon inquiry it was fourid he had passed 
the age limit. The late President J. H. Seelye, of Amherst College, being 
a member of Congress at the time, was able to secure for him an appoint- 
ment at the West Point Military Academy. Mr. Dickinson prepared for the 
Academy at the Agricultural College, passed his examinations successfully, 
entered in the spring of 1S76, and was graduated in 1S80. During these 
four years of study and discipline, he returned home three times ; once at the 
end of his second year, and once each succeeding year, 


He was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the Fourth Cavalry, serving- 
in Indian Territory, New Mexico, and Arizona. He saw active service with 
the Indians in these territories. Later he was detailed to Fort Leavenworth, 
Kansas, for two years, to attend the School for Officers, taking the most 
advanced courses. At Fort Leavenworth he was married to Mattie E. Otis, 
daughter of the late George L. Otis, of St. Paul, Minn. He was next 
returned to Arizona for ten months ; thence to Jefferson Barracks, Missouri, 
for three years ; back again to Arizona for a few months, and finally to Walla 
Walla, Washington. At this post he was transferred, at his request, to the 
Seventeenth Infantry, going with them into Wyoming for a brief period, 
from which place he received his commission as military instructor at our 
College in the summer of 1S92. He arrived in Amherst, in company with 
the writer, Monday afternoon, August 15th. Most of his military life 
having been spent in the various military outposts, the change to the com- 
parative quiet of a New England village was indeed an abrupt one. He 
soon became accustomed to the life, however, and entered upon his work in 
an enthusiastic spirit. He was very conscientious in the performance of his 
duties, rarely, if ever, being absent from an exercise, except in case of 
absolute necessity. He was very successful in his work with the students, 
and brought the military department to a high degree of efficiency. He was 
justly proud of what had been accomplished, and frequently remarked to the 
writer that he thought "the boys did well." He was every man's friend, 
ever ready with an encouraging word or a helpful suggestion. It is believed 
that the young men fully appreciated his kindly feelings toward them, for 
all the boys seemed to hold their commandant in the highest respect and 

The general appearance and drilling of the battalion at the competi- 
tive drill held in Boston in the spring of 1S96 was extremely gratifying to 
the Lieutenant. It is the opinion of the writer that he firmly believed the 
M. A. C. Cadets should have been given first place ; yet, like a true sol- 
dier, he never complained, or expressed any dissatisfaction at the award of 
the judges. 

As the years passed he seemed to become more attached to his boy- 
hood home, and was wont to remark that he had no desire to go west of 
the Mississippi again. So much did his work, the love of Amherst and 
its inhabitants appeal to him that, had it been possible, he would have 
been content to have made the town his permanent home. 

His four years' detail expii-ed in August, 1S96, and he was ordered 
to report to his regiment at Columbus Barracks, Ohio, where he was 


located till the Spanish-American war began. He returned to Amherst 
for a brief visit, especially, to see his aged parents, in the summer of 1897. 

The Seventeenth Regiment left Columbus for Tampa, Fla., on the 
19th of April, and remained there until it sailed for Cuba in company 
w^ith the first army of invasion. Lieutenant Dickinson was Regimental 
Quartermaster, and was very busy during much of the time after leaving 
Columbus Barracks. In a letter dated Tampa, June 6th, he writes : 
" I have a little time, and will drop you a line to say ' good-by,' as we 
expect to board the transports this evening. Our baggage is all packed, 
and the only thing now to be done is to pull down the tents, — fifteen 
minutes' work, — and we are off. ... I don't know where we are going, 
but somewhere to-night, beyond doubt. Colonel Haskell has just told me 
he thinks it is Santiago." 

His last letter to the writer was dated Transport Cherokee, off Santi- 
ago, June 20, 189.S: "Here we are off the coast of Cuba, and ready to 
land somewhere in this vicinity. . . . We have had a nice trip, but had 
to run slow, on account of some slow boats. I wonder when I shall see 
Amherst again." This letter was received on the morning of July 4th, 
two days after his death. 

The Seventeenth landed at Baiquiri, a small village some fifteen miles 
from Santiago, on June 32d, and began the march inland. Lieutenant Dick- 
inson remained on the Cherokee until June 27th, overseeing the unloading of 
the stores. On that date he rode from Baiquiri ten or twelve miles to the 
front, believing, no doubt, there would be a battle next day. He returned to 
the transport June 2Sth, and completed the unloading June 29th, and that 
evening rode back to the front with Lieutenant Atkinson, Qiiartermaster of 
the Sixth Regiment. He remained with the Sixth an hour or two, and 
about 10 p. M. rode off to the Seventeenth, about one and one half miles 
farther to the right of the line. On June 30th the whole regiment moved 
still farther to the right, to the northeast of El Caney, and bivouacked late 
at night. The story of July ist cannot be better told than by quoting from 
a letter of the late General Haskell, who commanded the regiment : " On 
the morning of July ist Lieutenant Dickinson came to me and said, 
' Colonel, I want to go with you to-day.' He had been with me always 
with the regiment on the march, unless occupied in his quartermaster 
duties, but none were required on this march. We marched up the moun- 
tain and down, through streams, over muddy places, on the slippery side 
of the hill, etc. . . . About nine o'clock I was directed to reenforce the 
extreme right. ... I had to hunt for a position that I could fire from, . . . 
and having found this, had to cut down a wire fence to enter. Lieutenant 


Dickinson was by my side all this time. I had just taken a view of Caney, 
and decided where to put the regiment, when my right boot was struck in 
the sole near the heel. Just then my left arm dropped to my side. Then 
the dear boy sang out, 'Colonel, I am gone; they have shot me clear 
through ; ' then his right arm dropped ; he was shot through the right 
forearm. Then a ball struck my right knee and knocked me down." 

This occurred while the Colonel and Lieutenant were in an open field, 
somewhat in advance of the regiment, the latter being sheltered behind a 
hedge. Lieutenant Dickinson, wounded in the arm and through the 
abdomen, appeared to have had sufficient control of himself to get back to 
his regiment unaided. He was placed upon a litter, attended by Surgeon 
Ebert, and carefully watched over by kind friends. He remained in the 
firing line until four o'clock in the afternoon, when he was carried to the 
rear and placed in the temporary hospital. Dui-ing the day he received two 
more wounds, one in the right leg, and a slight flesh wound in the arm. 
As he received the last wound he raised his eyes to his attendant and gave 
a look which was intended to mean, "You see I am the target to-day." In 
the evening he was removed, at his request, from the hospital to a mango 
tree near by. The morphine administered had more or less stupefied him, 
but he remained conscious till midnight, then gradually lost himself, and 
died peacefully at 3.30 A. m., July 2d. His body, dressed in uniform, and 
wrapped in his army blanket, was buried with one other officer and forty- 
one privates a short distance from the spot where he fell. He bore his 
sufferings bravely and quietly, and died a soldier's death. 

He was once heard to remark that when he died, he hoped it would 
be on the battlefield, in defense of his country. Little did he realize how 
soon this wish would be fulfilled. 

The body of the late Lieutenant Dickinson was brought to this country 
and buried with simple services in the Arlington Cemetery, at Washington, 
on November 10, 1S98. 

Lieutenant Dickinson was recommended for promotion on April 
36th, and his commission as captain was signed and issued by President 
McKinley on July 14, 1S98.

On Wednesday, November 9, 1S9S, memorial services in remembrance 
of Walter Mason Dickinson were held in the Stone Chapel at the Massa- 
chusetts Agricultural College. On the same day there was placed in the 
Chapel a bronze tablet set on Sienna marble, bearing the inscription with 


which we open this memorial. On the tablet immediately preceding the 
quotation is inserted the words, "Erected by his college friends," and a 
simple design, a palm branch bearing a crown of oak leaves. The quota- 
tion is taken from an address of Lieutenant Dickinson, delivered in the 
Stone Chapel on March 9, 1896, in memory of the deceased Governor of 
Massachusetts, Frederick T. Greenhalge. 

Whereas, it has pleased the Great Captain of the universe, through the cruel ac- 
cident of war, to remove from our midst one whom we respected as a commandant and 
teacher, honored as a man, trusted and loved as a friend, the late Capt. Walter Mason 
Dickinson ; and. 

Whereas, we keenlv feel our mutual loss, and deepl}' sympathize with his be- 
reaved family, and sincerely mourn his earlj demise; and 

Whereas, we feel that the College has lost a true friend and lojal son, and the 
nation a brave and gallant soldier, and his family a kind and loving husband and a duti- 
ful son ; therefore, be it 

Resolved, that we, the Class of Ninety-Six of the Massachusetts Agricultural Col- 
lege, whose privilege it was for four yeai'S to have him as commandant and instructor, 
do hereby extend to the bereaved family our sincere and heartfelt sympathy, and we 
deeply regret the loss to our army of an efficient officer, and to our College of a noble 
example of courage and fidelity to duty. And be it further 

Resolved, that a copy of these resolutions be sent to the bereaved family; that 
another copy be filed at the college library; that another copy be sent to Aggie Life, to 
be published in the first issue; and that another copy be sent to the Nineteen Hundred 
Index, and published therein, and that a copy be kept and filed with the records of the 
Class of Ninety-Six.

ARVEY R. ATKINS was born in Sliutesbury, Mass., Sep- 
tember 6, 1S78. He attended the public scliools at Nortli 
Amherst City, and in tlie fall of ninety-four entered the 
Massachusetts Agricultural College as a member of the two- 
years' class of Ninetj'-Six, He did not finish his course, how- 
ever ; but left college, and entered Mr. Nash's private school, where he 
remained for two terms. After leaving Mr. Nash's he was engaged in 
various occupations ; at the time of his enlistment he was motorman on 
the Amherst and Sunderland Street Railroad. 

He enlisted at Northampton in Company I, Second Regiment, M. V. 
M., in the latter part of April, and went into camp at South Framingham 
with his regiment, where they were mustered into the United States ser- 
vice. From this camp the regiment went South to Lakeland, Florida, then 
to Tampa, from where they embarked for Cuba. On the day of the battle 
of El Caney he received a sunstroke, from the effects of which he never 
fully recovered. The next day he helped carry his wounded lieutenant to 
the division hospital, six miles in the rear, and on the following day re- 
joined his company. For three weeks he lay with his regiment in the 
trenches before Santiago, suffering continually from the effects of the svui- 
stroke, till, on July 34th, it became necessary to leave the ranks. He was 
sent to the hospital, and, two days later, on July 26th, he passed away.

Tf)e Oapel P>eU. 

T LIKE that bell— that ancient bell — 
*- Of massive form and virgin gold, 
As firm, as free from base alloy 
As were the ancient hearts of old. 

I like its ring in early morn ; 

It calls us to our daily prayers ; 
We worship 'neath its massive form, 

And to our God resign our cares. 

It calls us from our thoughts divine 

Of God, and all his wond'rous power. 

To things of earth and duties here ; 
And then again to end the hour, 

I like that bell, — that ancient bell, — 
What varied feelings round it cling ! 

It calls us to our mid-day meal ; 
For that I like its old, old ring. 

Tl)e i^an in tt)e ^oat. 

(Written for the Index by Herman Babson.) 

iT was one of those hot, sultry afternoons when we found ourselves at 
the spot chosen for our camp. To the right, and the left, and behind, 
Storm Mountain and its foothills raised their craggy sides straight 
IL into pure white, fleecy clouds; while in front, Sawkistu Lake lay shim- 
mering in the afternoon sun. After a dip in the lake we went to work 
putting up our tent, and by six o'clock we had everything done. Nearby 
our fire crackled cheerfuUj' under a pan of sputtering eggs and bacon, the care of which 
fell to my chum. Meanwhile, lying at full length in front of the tent, I lazily watched 
a hawk circling far above me. 

" Bob," I remarked, without troubling to turn my head toward him, "I heard you 
mention lake trout this afternoon." 

"Yes," he answered. " We'll try them to-morrow." 

" Where's the best place.'"' 

"Well, I don't know. But there's an old chap lives near here, — his house is back 
in the woods under the mountain, — who knows every hole in the bottom of the lake. 
He's called Old Brod— sort of a hermit, you know. I don't know him, but I'll walk 
■over after supper and scrape an acquaintance." 

" Do you mind if I don't go.?" I asked. 

"No. I'll be back by— by ten, anyway. It's a fairly good walk, but I'll clip it off 
at a lively rate." 

We had our supper, cleared up, made our beds, and had a smoke. Then Bob took 
his gun and departed. I watched him out of sight, and then went into the tent to go 
to bed. The last thing I did before lying down was to pin back one of the canvas flaps. 

A deep, fai--away rumble of thunder, somewhere back of the mountain, awoke me. 
For a moment I lay listening to the dying reverberations, and then I raised mj'self on 
my elbow and bent over to see if Bob was with me. He was hot. I got up, and 
striking a match found that it was midnight. Wondering where Bob could be, I went 
to the front of the tent and looked out. A bright moon, two or three days past the 
full, was already high above the eastern hills, and by its light I could clearly see the 
■dark water of the lake below. I looked round for a while, and then, on the impulse of 
the moment, yelled Bob's name at the top of my voice. The cry rang up and down 
the shore, and back toward the mountain ; and then, with echo after echo, it died away 
into silence. As I listened to catch the sound of a reply, I grew nervous. My mind 
became active, and I began to think of uncanny things; and with a shiver that I could 
not suppress I drew back into the tent and crawled under my blanket. 

Once started on unpleasant subjects, my thoughts refused to quiet themselves, 
although I tried reciting verses and counting. At last I sat up to feel in the pocket of 
my coat for a match and a cigarette; and as I did so my gaze fell upon that part of the 
Jake visible through the open tent flap. 

I saw something that made mv blood run cold. 

About two hundred feet oft" from Ihe shore, in the broad wake of the moon, lay a 
boat. In it, standing at his full height, was a man violently waving his arms. The 
boat was not ours, for I plainly saw the one we had brought moored in its usual place. 
The man was not Bob; that I knew instantly. But knowing this was only to increase 
my terror. Shivers ran up and down my back, my heart sank, my nerves tino-led. I 
wondered if I was a coward; had I lost all manliness.? What was there so terrible 
in the sight of a man standing in a boat and waving his arms.'' 

At this moment Bob burst into the tent; whereupon I sprang to mv feet and 
grasped his arm. 

" Where have you been.'"' I whispered. 

" I got lost," he said, excitedly, and with a voice as low as mine; " got lost like a 
fool. Old Brod wasn't at home, and I somehow got off" the road on my way back. I 
had just reached the lake when I saw " 

"Yes, yes," I interrupted. " Have you seen \t?" 

"The man oft' there in the boat, you mean.' Yes. I have been watching it for 
the last five minutes. I heard you shout my name, but I didn't answer." 

" My God ! " I chattered through my teeth, " what is it.?" 

Bob took me by my shoulders and gave me a sound shaking. 

" Look here," he said, "you haven't got a bit of nerve. Brace up, my boy. It's 
nothing but some fool trying to scare us. Now I'm going to scare him." 

He grabbed a repeating rifle, and poking the barrel through the opening in the 
tent, fired. The report rolled up and down the night air as had my cry; but the figure 
and the boat remained as before. 

Bob sank to his knees. " I did not fire to hit him," he said, " but, by Heaven, this 
time I aim straight at him. Look ! " 

Bang! We both peered through the smoke to see the effect of the shot, but Bob 
had missed. 

Once more the rifle spoke; and once more we gazed toward the wildlv gesticu- 
lating figure. 

" Missed — again ! " I cried. 

" No ! " retorted Bob. " No ! I swear I hit him, for I aimed full and fair." 

" But he is still unharmed," I said. 

"Well, I'm going to fire again, and if I don't hit this time I'm going down there." 

" What ! Going down near that " 

" Get back ! " whispered Bob. 

For a fourth time the report rang out; and when I saw that the figure still stood 
upright I felt as though the ground was slipping from under me. Again I grasped Bob 
by the arm. 

He pushed me away — roughlj'. 

" Let go of me, you coward ! " he cried. " If you haven't the sand to come with 
me, stay here. But I tell you I'm going to take the boat and row oft' to i/ia^ if I die for 

He jammed four cartridges into the magazine of his rifle, and bolting from the 
tent started to run for the shore. Urged on by the horror of being left alone I quickly 
followed him, and in a few seconds we were both beside the skift". Bob untied the rope, 
jumped into the bow, and pointed for me to take the oars. 

" Row," he exclaimed. 

I half tumbled upon the thwart, shoved the oars through the pins, and gave a 
long sweep. 


"Be quick, now," commanded Bob. "Pull on jour right, — now jour left, — left 
still more, — now steady — and hard." 

The exercise sent the blood tingling through my veins, and I began to pull for 
■dear life ; but it seemed as though I had hardly begun, when Bob shouted for me to 

" We're almost on him," he said, speaking rapidly, " and in a moment you must 
back water. He is still waving his arms, and does not seem to see us. Don't turn 
round, for you will change our course. Get ready — I'm going to grasp him. Now! 
Back water— not so hard. Pull again — you've almost stopped. Pull — pull " 

In desperation I turned to look. The boat with a good headway was moving rap- 
idly onward. Bob was standing up, holding fast to the rail. Nearer and nearer we 
came to the silent figure — our bow all but grating against the other boat's side. My 
companion, now breathing heavily, reached forward his right hand to grab the man, 
Avhen — I shudder as I think of it ! — the strange boat slowly but steadily glided backward 
out of reach, and then stopped. 

"Look, look !" cried luy friend. "He's backing away from us. I almost had 
my hand on him. See — he's moving his arms as wildly as ever. Row up to him 
again. I will find out what he is ! " 

Again I took the oars and pulled a few strokes; and again, just as Bob was about 
to place his hand upon the man, he and his boat glided away a few rods, only to stop 
as before. 

In a, fit of frenzy Bob raised the rifle and fired the entire contents of the magazine 
point blank at the figure. And when he saw it still standing and waving its arms, he 
began to swear. Finally, as though coming to his senses, he roughly pushed me into 
the stern, and took the oars himself. A third time we approached, and still again the 
boat with its occupant receded. 

Then began a horrible chase. Time after time w^e drew near to this strange boat, 
only to see it fioat away untouched. Across a bend of the lake we followed it, until we 
found ourselves in shallow water and amid tangled lilies, reeds, and water grass. 

" It has stopped again," said Bob, breaking a long silence. "This tim.e we will 
reach it, for it can't go any farther. Here — row. I'm nearly dead." 

I took the oars. 

" Pull quickly," said Bob, moving back to the bow. " If I don't touch it this time, 
I'm going to jump." 

"No you won't," I replied, sweeping the boat round so that we both could see. 
" So long as I have any strength left you will never leave this boat. Now keep still for 
a minute, and watch this thing." 

We both looked — but there was nothing to be seen; the boat and the man had 

How we got back to our camp I don't know. But I remember that all that night 
we sat near our tent watching the lake, At last morning came, but we were in no 
mood to build a fire or to cook breakfast. 

" We can walk over to a farmhouse that is half a mile back from here, and get our 
meal there," said Bob. " And then we can return and pack up. I've had enough of 
this place." 

When we reached the yard in front of the house we saw the owner working in the 
garden. We at once asked if we could have some breakfast. 

"Ye ain't tramps, be ye.''" he asked, looking at us doubtfully. 

" Oh, no; we " 

" 'Cause if ye are, ye can pass on. Where're ye from- — eh?" 


" We are campers from the lake," I ventured to explain. " We — er^ — we — well, you 
rsee we thought we'd rather walk over here and paj for our meal than cook it there." 

It was a lame reason lamely put, and I knew it. So did our inquisitive friend. 
He approached us slowlj^ and looking us over said at last : 

"Ye must like to walk — or p'r'aps j'e don't know a durn 'bout cookin' — eh.' Anj- 
how, I guess we can give ve somethin'. Come in." 

He led us through the yard, and into the kitchen by waj' of the back door. 

" We don't use our dinin' i-oom in summers,'' he said ; " so je'll have to set here. 
Take them chairs, an' I'll see what we can give ye." 

He went to call his wife, and I glanced round the room. My eyes fell on a picture 
— a cheap, crayon portrait in a gaudy, gilt frame, hanging over the mantel. Some- 
thing in the features riveted my attention. 

" Bob," said I, keeping my eyes on the picture, "don't 3 ou think that a queer 
place for a portrait.'"' 

" Where.'' Oh, that — why — why, ir\y dear man — look at it — look at it!" 

At this moment the farmer returned. 

"Who is that.'"' asked Bob, pointing to the picture. 

"That," drawled our host. "Why, that's my brother. We don't get on very 
well — that is, we did'nt. My wife wanted the picture hid away, but I be durned if I'd do 
':it. 'He's my blood,' I said, 'after all; an' I'm goin' to keep him in sight.' So we 
comprermised the thing, an' I' took it from the settin 'room, an' hanged it here. P'r'aps 
ye knew him. He got drowned one night last year in the lake. He used to live alone 
up in the woods. Folks called him Old Brod. Well, one night he v>ent out and got 
drowned. An' he ain't never been found sence. I 'suppose his body is all gone by this 
time. Sence he's died no one ain't been near his shanty 'cept Sim Jones, — an' he started 
a durn fool tale as how Brod appears in his boat on the lake whenever anyone goes to 
his house in the night. Sim's a fool, but that story, somehow or other, worked. Say — 
p'r'aps ye'd like to have me show ye his place. It's a queer old " 

" Thank you, we won't trouble j'ou." 

I arn sure that we both spoke together. 

"Well, ye can do jest's ye like, of course," replied our friend, going into an 
adjoining pantry. 

"It's he!" exclaimed Bob, his eyes glistening, — "the man in the boat. I can 
5ee him now, waving his arms " 

"Yes," I answered slowly, " yes— it is he." 

Presently our breakfast came, but we didn't enjoy it. 


An Upper Clansman's Recollection of Mis 
Freshman Dd.%$. 


NCE upon a midnight dreary 
While I pondered, weak and weary, 
Over many a quaint and curious 

Problem of algebraic lore ; 

While I nodded, nearly napping. 

Suddenly there came a tapping, 

As of someone loudly rapping. 

Rapping at my study door, — 

Only this, and nothing more. 

Ah, distinctly I remember, 
It was in the bleak November, 
And each separate dying ember 

Wrought a ghost upon the floor. 
Eagerly I had wished the morrow ; 
Vainly I had sought to borrow 
Wings to take me from this sorrow 

Waiting me outside the door ; 

Only that, and nothing more. 

And a silken, sad, uncertain 
Rustling behind my window curtain 
Thrilled me, filled me with fantastic 

Terrors never felt before ; 
So that now, to still the beating 
Of my heart, I stood repeating, 
" 'Tis but a visitor entreating 

Entrance at my study door. 

That it is, and nothing more." 

Presently the blows grew stronger ; 
Hesitating then no longer, 
" Sir," said I, or " Sirs," truly 
Your forgiveness I implore ; 
But the fact is I was napping. 
And so softly you came tapping 
That I scarcely heard you rapping." 
Here I opened wide the door, — 
The Owl Club entered with a roar, 


Back into the chamber turning, 
All my soul within me burning, 
In there rushed that stately Owl Club, 

As it rushed in days of yore ; 
Not the least obeisance made they, 
Not a moment stopped nor stayed they. 
But picked me up and laid me 
Just outside my chamber door — 
Laid me there upon the floor. 

" Wretches ! " cried I, " things of evil ! 
Wretches still if men or devils, 
Whether Tempter sent, or whether 

Tempest tossed thee here ashore, 
Desolate, yet all undaunted, 
Will I return to this enchanted — 
To this room with horror haunted? 

Tell me truly, I implore." 

Quoth the Owl Club, " Nevermore." 

"Wretches," cried I, " things of evil. 
Wretches still if men or devils. 
By that heaven that bends above us. 

By that God we both adore, 
Tell this soul, with sorrow laden, 
If again in the distant Aidenn 
I shall clasp a sainted maiden 
To this heart of mine so sore." 
Qyioth the Owl Club, " Nevermore." 

" Be that word our sign of parting. 

Men or fiends ! " I shrieked, upstarting. 
" Get thee back into the darkness, 

Where other fiends have gone before ! " 
Then against the railing sinking, 
I betook myself to linking 
Fancy unto fancy, thinking 

What this ominous Club of yore 
Meant in croakinsr "Nevermore." 


And the Owl Club, then they stretched me 
On their shoulders, and they fetched me 
Out upon the College campus, 

Regardless that no clothes I wore. 
Not a sound could I utter, 
Not a word could I stutter. 
And I scarcely heard one mutter, 
" Take him round to the farther shore." 

Qiioth the Owl Club, " Deepest shore." 

Then those demons, then they swung me 
While they counted, and they flung me 
Far into the blackest waters. 

And the water covered me o'er. 
Left me then M'ithout a token, 
Not a single word was spoken. 
Left my loneliness unbroken, 

Lying there upon the shore — 

Humbled, yes, for evermore.

"1901 5a5^I>^ll Team." 

\ I 7 HEN, in the course of human events, a party, however great or small 
'" it maybe either in number or intellectual ability, overcomes utterly 
insurmountable obstacles which roughen the road to notoriety, and, with 
eyes fixed steadfastly upon the goal of its ambition, pursues steadily on- 
ward, regardless of the means which it may use, — when a party has thus 
proven its worth, we say that that party should receive public encourage- 
ment ; that that party should receive the hearty support of all mankind; 
that that party should receive what it wishes, — fame, notoriety. This we 
firmly believe, and believing, we act. Thus this : 

To our notice has come a case of just such a party still struggling over 
the ups and downs of life. On the page opposite we reproduce a wonder- 
ful likeness of it; the name by which it is known to the world we will re- 
frain from mentioning; the name by which it is known to itself is "The 
Entire Nineteen Hundred and One Baseball Team." Born in a cellar, 
never fully organized, it has come upstairs into the world; it has risen 
from its lowly bii-thplace to the high pedestal upon which it now stands by 
much the same means as enables a balloon to ascend. However, we think 
we have noticed a leak, and unless immediate steps are taken to prevent 
the escape of gas we predict a total destruction. Its downfall is sure to 
follow, and happy be it if it fall into the cellar from whence it came, and 
not into that smaller cellar from which no man rises. 

Our mission here is to help struggling humanity to reach notoriety, — 
the goal of its ambition, — and to this party we will offer advice which ma}' 
be of assistance in accomplishing its end : if fame is your ambition play 
football. Let baseball alone ; it has no use for you. You will remember 
that "sweets are for the sweet"; so, too, the pigskin filled with wind is 
for you. Concentrate yourself into one man, be a good guard, and on 
the grridiron shine.

Whereas, It has pleased the all-wise Faculty to remove from our 
midst the beloved and much cherished organization, The Owl Club ; and, 

Whereas, Recognizing its many virtues and manly qualities, and 
keenly feeling our mutual loss, and deeply sympathizing with its bereaved 
patronizers, the Sophomore Class, in their afflictions, and sincerely mourn- 
ing its early demise ; and. 

Whereas, We feel that the College has lost a most useless character- 
istic feature, and the Sophomore Class a degenerated offspring and an 
over-abused liberty ; therefore be it 

Resolved: That we, the active members of the Class of Nineteen 
Hundred and Two of the Massachusetts Agricultural College, whose privi- 
lege it has been never to have been initiated into its mysteries, do hereby 
extend to the bereaved patronizers our sincere and heartfelt sympathy, and 
congratulate them on their loss. And be it further 

Resolved: That a copy of these resolutions be published in the Nine- 
teen Hundred Index of the Massachusetts Agricultural College, and an- 
other be kept and filed with the records of the Class of Nineteen Hundred 
and Two.

An' pulled quite langie, 

Sae here's a cheer 

For the wee classic ; 
May ye marry 

Right weel, ma laddies ! 


Paradise Lo^t. 

(Written for the J900 Index by J— L— .) 

A FTER considerable urging on the part of the editor for a contribution 
'**■ to the literary columns of the Index, I have finally decided to contribute 
an account of a personal experience heretofore unknown to anyone but 
myself and my roommate. It was very reluctantly that I have made such a 
decision, and I have brought myself to do so for one reason only : in the 
largeness of my heart I wished that others might profit, as I have done, by 
the example set forth, and learn its lesson without the hard trial of passing 
through the terrible ordeal. 

It was about a year ago this time, perhaps a little earlier in the fall, but 
the evenings were quite cool. We were being pushed pretty hard in our 
studies, particularly in mathematics, and night after night I had labored on 
far toward midnight, only to be driven from my half-finished work by the 
increasing coldness. Peculiarly enough, the cold always affected my feet 
first, and my body would be perfectly warm long after they had become 
numb. This may have been due to the lack of blood in my lower extremi- 
ties during my great mental activity ; however, it caused me much annoy- 
ance, and for hours after retiring to my couch the pain would drive slumber 
far from my pillow. I could find no remedy, at least, not until this par- 
ticular night in mention, and then the remedy was not permanent by any 

I had closed my books and turned slowly toward my bed, tired and 
sleepy, but filled with fear. I longed for the bliss of perfect rest ; I 
longed for the warm foot-stone which my good mother used to place at my 
feet as she tucked the clothes about me and sang a lullaby ; I feared the 
hours of wakefulness and suffering ; I feai'ed the morning, which would 
find me still tired and sleepy. I j-aised my hand to turn out the light, that 
the room might be as dark as my soul ; but as my fingers touched the globe 
the warmth inspired me. A happy thought ; there w^as heat, there was 
comfort. Quickly I unrolled the long extension and placed the incandes- 
cent lamp against my feet, between the sheets. Oh, how that warmth 
cheered me ! The heat ascended to my body ; comfort, contentment, and 
happiness were mine, and I dropped into peaceful slumber. 


Peaceful, did I say? Ay, peaceful and blessed. I will never forget the 
dreams I dreamed that night. My body seemed to rise, and I felt myself 
being carried away, whither I knew not nor cared, so great was my peace- 
fulness and trustfulness. I thought I was being carried away by the winds 
of might. I knew I "was leaving this world, leaving Aggie, leaving study, 
leaving drill, and but one thought saddened me, — leaving her. I was 
approaching another world, and even at a distance I could see that it was 
beautiful. A delightful odor of flowers and perfumes reached my nostrils, 
and the sound of music, singing, and laughter came to my ears. Soon I 
could see the flowers and grass below, the waving trees and the little brook- 
lets winding in and out through the shady groves. Happy faces were all 
around, — the faces of men, women, and children playing, and laughing, 
and dancing together, and continually singing a song of praise and joy. Joy 
filled my breast ; I wished to dance and sing, but something held me back. 
No one appeared to notice me. I could not move; I seemed to be bound. 

My inability to move caused me some uneasiness and doubt ; was I to 
be permitted to watch this gay festival without taking any part myself? It 
seemed so, and I strained every muscle to escape from the clasp of my 
unseen fetters, but in vain ; the effort exhausted me, and made me uncom- 
fortable with heat. In fact, I had become quite heated ; I felt the warmth of 
the sun ; it was like a hot summer day, and we seemed to be approaching 
towai'd it rapidly. It was so ; the grass and flowers were withering and 
drooping, the brooklets were becoming dry, a fine dust filled the air; I 
closed my eyes. As before, odors came to my nostrils, — not now of flowers 
and perfumes, but of smoke and fire ; sounds came to my ears, not of sing- 
ing and laughter, but of shrieks, and curses, and groans. I opened my eyes 
again. What a change ! — no grass, no water, no trees ! Where the grass 
and flowers had gi'own was now a bed of hot and shifting sand ; where the 
streams had flowed was now but a pathway of stones ; where trees had stood 
now alone remained charred and blackened trunks, from which darted forth 
hundreds of tongues of fire. The sands were burning my feet ; a terrible 
fear had come over me, — my head was bursting with the mad thoughts rush- 
ing through my poor brain. I tried to cry out, but my throat was parched 
and choked; I could utter no sound. Again and again I struggled to free 
myself that I might fly from this horrible place, but it was of no avail. The 
effort exhausted me ; dizziness was overcoming me ; a terrible curse rent the 
air, and I fell. 

The fall awoke me. I was stretched on the floor, the room was filled 
with smoke, and it was not till I recognized the voice that I realized that it 


was my roommate and not the Devil who was standing over me kicking and 
swearing, and that I was still an inhabitant of this world. "Wake up !" he 
cried; "your bed's on fire!" It all flashed through me in an instant, — that 

It was but a little thing, but the lesson that I have learned will remain 
with me forever. I live through it all again each night as I lay me down to 
sleep ; it comes back to me with redoubled force as I sit upon the steep 
banks of the ravine, and thoughtfully watch the mass of mouldy, half-burned 
bedclothes below me. My dear friends, you who are green as I was green, 
take heed from iny experience and beware ; no matter what 3'ou may hear, 
remember that you cannot be " too green to burn." 

There once came a man from Dover 

Who loved to roll in the clover. 

He was bashful, you bet, 

Till Miss M-y he met. 

And now his shyness is over. 

from JoI)n Ingram. 

Who fears to speak of Ninety-Eight ? 

Who trembles at the name ? 
And when one mentions the rope-pull date, 

Who hangs their heads for shame ?

Answers to Correspondents. 

Note. — For one reason or another Ave have neglected to answer a few of our 
letters. We take this occasion to do so. — Ed. 

F. H. T. It was purely an oversight that caused us to neglect to 
answer yours of October i6th. We will do what we can to atone for our 
carelessness, and will not print your name in the Index in connection with 
So. Hadley. Of course, we understand that the only reason you have 
for visiting Mt. Holyoke College so often is to see your "sister"; we 
know you do not care to see any other young lady there, although we do 
not know how many "sisters" you have. Certainly, we agree that that 
rude story around college about you is untrue ; we know that you never 
could have said that you would become engaged to a young lady from 
" over the mountain " before the next military ball if it were necessary in 
order that the authorities would allow her to accompany you. We feel 
assured that you are utterly incapable of such a thing. 

H. W. D. You neglected to enclose postage-stamp for reply. We 
will forward imm.ediately upon receipt of two cents, or if you feel that 
you cannot bear the burden of the expense, send us a postal card and 
receive the information for half price. 

F. G. S. That's all right, old man ; we won't mention " the girl you 
love." You might find consolation in singing that old refrain, " When 
you know the girl you love loves you." 

G. C. H. We thought it unnecessary to reply to you before. We 
agree with you most assuredly in regard to the matter of Class-day exer- 
cises. We are happy to learn that your class intends to hold such exer- 
cises, and we hope your expectations will be realized, and that you will 
be elected Campus Orator. We recognize the right of the Campus Orator 
to "roast" those who have "roasted" him, and we will hear what you 
have to say with great fortitude and humility. We suggest that you copy 
the style of the last Campus Orator if you wish to obtain notoriety. 


Bill H. On account of the shortness of funds we disliked to pav 
the necessary postage, and consequently we have not yet explained our 
reasons for refusing to publish your name in the Faculty list. We will 
take this occasion to do so. It was not through any feeling of jealousy, as 
you supposed, because a fellow-student's name would appear in a more 
prominent place than our own ; by no means, for we are perfectly satis- 
fied with our position. You may have made the College ; we have made 
the college annual. The reason was of an entirely different nature; it 
was purely the result of a compromise between two factions of the Board ; 
one wanting the entry to be made, " Bill Henry Armstrong, Instructor of 
Industrial Art," and the other, " Bill Henry Armstrong, Instructor of Me- 
chanical and Freehand Drawing." The first faction was very firm in its 
standing, and produced roll after roll of argument on its side. It claimed, 
and as you know claimed truthfull}', that your special request w^as that the 
title, "Instructor of Industrial Art" be inserted. Another claim it pre- 
sented was that the title applies very closely to you, you being a perfect 
-sample of an " industrial art." You know " industrial" means "habitu- 
ally diligent," and an "art" is a "device." The other faction, however, 
was equally firm, stating that in all things the " first should be foremost," 
and therefore your first request should receive the foremost consideration, 
-and "Instructor of Mechanical and Freehand Drawing" should be your 
title. This title is also more explicit, and would give a better idea of your 
work to one unacquainted with the College. Of course we all under- 
stand that Professor is teaching Mechanical Drawing under your im- 
mediate direction. Thus you see how matters stood, half against half, 
and each half made up of that invincible material which characterizes 
the entire class. There was nothing to do but compromise, and compro- 
mise we did, with what results you already know. 

Many thanks for kind offer in regard to that other matter. Expe- 
rience is a grand thing, and if we decide to publish a supplement to our 
Index we will certainly consult you, and accept your offer to help. 

C . We are sorry to say that we have no exchange list. We 

appreciate your kindness, and realize the value of the publications that you 
-are editing: "My Intellect," a leaflet, by Percival C. Brooks, and "My 
Words," in ten volumes, by the same great man ; but the subject is too 
■deep for our undeveloped mind to understand, therefore we must decline 
^o exchange. 


Tf)e a(^aa5l)-Pie nan. 

HEN mother called me to the house 
And washed my face in bran, 
And combed my hair, I knew there' d come- 
The squash-pie man. 

The squash-pie man, he is so good, 

He lets me search his van 
To find the dainties that I like. 

This sciuash-pie man. 

Sometimes I eat a pie or two, 

Or drink from out his can ; 
And then I think how good he is. 

This squash- pie man. 

One day when we were all alone, 

A story he began ; 
And this was what was told me by 

My squash-pie man : 

One time, so very long ago. 

Before my life began, 
A learned young professor was 

This squash- pie man. 

He knew so lots the people stared. 

As through the streets he ran. 
And wondered how he learned so much. 

The squash-pie man. 

He knew all writings that were writ 

By every kind of man ; 
And he himself coidd write a bit. 

This squash-pie man. 

He had a class so awful large, 

That when it first began 
He couldn't speak, he was afraid, 

This squash-pie man. 

One day he thought, and thought, and thought 

And then he had a plan : 
He'd learn a trade that he could use. 

This squash-pie man. 


He'cl learn a trade that he could use, 
And straightway bought a pan, 

And made a pie so nice and flat. 
This squash-pie man. 

At first it stuck onto the plate'; 

His troubles then began ; 
And then he didn't cook it through. 

This squash-pie man. 

But soon he found the proper way. 

Saw how the trouble ran ; 
And then he started once again, 

The squash-pie man. 

TN^ow, soon a good pie he could cook,- 
Became a well-known man, — 

And people flocked about to see 
The squash-pie man. 

He cooked so well he lost his job ; 

He had too good a plan : 
The school could not support so great 

A squash-pie man. 

•So all at once he found his life 

In different channels ran ; 
A teacher once, but now he is 

A squash-pie man. 

So, little children, list to me : 

Whenever you do plan 
Your future life, take lesson by 

The squash-pie man. 

If dark theologies you'd teach, 

Be certain, if 3'ou can. 
To salt it with a spice, as did 

This squash-pie man. 

Don't put your eggs all in one boat, — 

It's not the safest plan ; 
But do as I have told you did 

My squash- pie man.

P>ridgefortf)'5 Defense. 

(By our Special Correspondent.) 

Mr. President, 

O Most Honorable Judges : — 

The stupendenty of this most ignominious, insalubrious accusation is 
overwhehning to my personage. It is but an unsubstantiated, Limelliferous 
imbroglio, immethodically imformulated by characters of stillatitious honor, 
who labor, undoubtedly, under the hallucination that I am like a hemistich 
and my mind in vacuo i/i propria persona. But thei'e is One supermundane 
who has maintained a surveillance over le beau moude^ and with his 
adjacent succor I will demonstrate my impeccability -* 

* Our correspondent was overcome by the heat of the argument, and the rest of 
this magnificent defense has been lost to the world. 



nen Wt)om We Have ^et. 


This gentleman is boss of the ranch, and as 
snch he exerts a potent influence amongst the cattle 
gathered together under his charge. His time is 
much occupied by numerous duties, and to facili- 
tate the same, he is obliged to make use of two 
offices and numerous recitation rooms. He can 
be seen daily on the electric car that leaves Am- 
herst at 7.40 A. M., and all business with this 
important individual should be conducted on that 
trip, as the gentleman will have had his breakfast, 
and will, therefore, be in a happy state of mind. He is noted for his 
largeness of heart, ready sympathy, and broad generosity, but far above all 
this, for his capacity for turning off an enormous quantity of work. He is 
familiarly known as " Prexy." 



This gentleman is of German extraction. 
His fame abroad has been excelled by that 
which he has achieved while among us. 
His toying with various fertilizers has been 
of immense benefit to the farmer at large, as 
his deductions have always enabled the 
agriculturist to fight shy of fake corn raisers. 
He can be seen at the Experiment Station, surrounded by test tubes and 
assistants, while he enlarges upon some simply intricate formula for carbo- 
hydrates. His classes in the College are large and well patronized. 
Absences from his recitations never exceed five a day, and seldom equal 
that. He is a pleasant, jovial foreigner, with a charming home, where he 
dispenses his wide hospitality. This learned doctor is chiefly noted for 
having a son called " Charlie." 



As a raiser of grafted trees and choice speci- 
mens of the grape fruits, this gentleman is a howl- 
ing success. His private orchard upon the hill is 
an object of envy throughout the State, and is well 
patronized by members of the College during sea- 
son. His private office, in the plant house, is ably 
run by an assistant, who endeavors to balance the 
two sides of his cash book whenever the necessity 
arises. Professor Maynard is an adept at building 
hothouses, and he endeavors to inculcate his principles wherever he finds 
fertile ground. His numerous trips about the country are well patronized 
by the Junior Class, and his lectures are listened to attentively by all who 
may have the good fortune to attend them. His rooms are situated upon 
the side of the hill, and are rather difficult to reach when the weather is 



This gentleman is not a German by any 
means, although many people have been led to 
believe him such. He is, we believe, a purely 
born American citizen, with strong German tend- 
encies. Many years ago he had the misfortune to 
graduate from the University of Gottingen with a 
long degree, and since that day he has partly sev- 
ered himself from the traditions and customs of his 
native country. Dr. Wellington is noted chiefly 
as being the financial backer and general promoter of the K. K. K., an 
Assyrian letter fraternity, composed of members of his chemistry classes ; 
of the Kniepe, a praiseworthy effort to establish German sociality among 
us; and of the Commers, a delightful reunion of alumni, where sauerkraut 
and muffins may be had with a speech and a cigar. Altogether the Doctor 
is a hard w^orker. 

I. '^4 


This is another member of our Faculty 
who delights in the name of Charles. He is 
a dealer in bugs, wholesale and retail. His 
store is well stocked, and it is no trouble to 
show goods. There is little loss in the busi- 
ness, as many of the bugs are raised on the 
premises. His time is spent chiefly between 
his home and jMalden, where he goes frequently to meet some new Gypsy 
moth who does not happen to have the pleasure of his acquaintance. The 
doctor's circle of friends is very large, and he can generally recall a face 
once seen, whether it be within the bark of some spreading elm, or upon 
the uneven surface of our campus. This gentleman has a very pleasing 
smile and cordial handshake, but his dislike to all athletic games mars an 
otherwise perfect character. 


This gentleman is a Ph.D. ; he got it from 
Yale in 1S70. Since then he has traveled much, 
his last journey being from his home beside the 
sumptuous Hash House down to East Street. As 
yet he has not returned. The doctor is an enthusi- 
astic bicycler, taking his daily exercise between the 
hours of seven thirty and ten in the morning, and 
whenever he finds companions he invariably sets 
the pace. He is noted for his numerous writings 
upon the money question and for his thoroughness 
as a teacher of political economy, domestic economy, and college economv. 
He is a pleasant man to meet, and a charming conversationalist. We are 
not in a position to truthfully assert that the doctor can tell a good story 
wdien cornered, but judging from others of his cloth it would be safe to 
wager that he can. Anyway, he is a good listener. 



Tins member of the Facult}' is a Japa- 
nese, although to see him in the recitation 
room, one could hardly believe it. He sports 
a decoration given him by the Emperor of 
Japan, and as there are but two others in the 
country, he has not pawned his yet. His 
knowledge of drainage is thorough and com- 
plete, and he is a successful raiser of strawberries in his back yard. As a 
man, he is a royal good fellow and a patriotic alumnus. His gift for ora- 
tory is good, but his ability to tell a good story is better. He can talk Jap- 
anese, for we have heard him, and his command of English is superb. His 
ideas relative to gentlemanly conduct at athletic games commend themselves 
to all sportsmen. His only curse is that he is the uncle of an irrepressible 
nephew who has not, as yet, reached the end of his rope. 



This gentleman is the most popular man 
in College on Wednesdays and Saturdays. 
His duties are varied. He is an expert math- 
ematician and an accomplished linguist. His 
command of English in the classroom is 
something marvelous, and his acquaintance 
with the authors unlimited. His name at the 
bottom of a slip of paper has been known to bring tears of gratitude to the 
eyes of the laborer, and to make the delinquent weep with anguish. The 
prof, has many familiar names, which we will not give for obvious reasons ; 
suffice it to say that he is one of the whitest men on the Facult}-, and that is 
saying much. 



Another German of American extrac- 
tion. The doctor's greatest delight is to cut 
up a horse in his little seven by nine laboratory. 
But this is a thing of the past, and we should 
not mention it. As a lobbyist the doctor is 
eminently successful, as the new Veterinary 
building testifies, and his field of work will 
be greatly extended. We have been told that 
the doctor crossed the ocean once to get a glass of German beer ; but as 
we did not obtain this statement from him personally it is not offered 
as authority. It is true, however, that the doctor ruined several gross of 
photographic films while on the other side of the pond, as can be proven 
from the pictures he brought back. The doctor's chief hobbies are market 
gardening and the raising of choice fowls ; his inseparable companions, in 
rain or shine, are his wheel, weighing ninety-six and geared up to twenty- 
one, and a small, lively, insignificant black dog. 



The newest one of all. This gentleman came 
to us from the wild and wooly West, \yhere the 
inhabitants gamble on the weather and dodge 
cyclones. The professor is an adept at Trigonom- 
etry and Surveying. He can calculate the path 
of a planet, or tell the dimensions of a parabola, 
with lightning-like rapidity, but his greatest suc- 
cess is as a weather wizard. He can give the 
greatest varieties of climatic changes in the shortest 
possible time on record, and he is infallible in prognosticating temperatures 
for the past month. The professor is blessed with forty-two titles given by 
various colleges, and two children. He is short, — physically, we mean, — 
with snapping black eyes, and his favorite diversion is to smoke in the 
weather room, with his feet upon the table. In this way he keeps tab on the 
storms, and records the times that the weather does not coincide with his 
predictions. For this latter work the College supplies him with ten tons 
of paper per month. 



This gentleman dabbles in photography and 
the raising of tomato plants. He has a special 
hobby of going to Springfield, but it is perfectly 
harmless. Once upon a time he went to the 
Massachusetts Institute of Technology ; but they 
got tired of him, and fired him out along with his 
diploma. He then went to Germany, but little is 
known of his work there except that he did not do 
very well, and came back to us with only a Ph.D. 
The doctor is, however, a fine fellow and a thor- 
ough connoisseur of beauty. His laborator}'- is a model for working pur- 
poses, and it has become the pride of his heart. Whenever extended botany 
trips are made the doctor is sure to be one of the party, and his lively 
disposition always enhances the fun. He rides a machine of the model of 
1S73, and it is painted yellow. This is to warn people of his presence 
when the night is dark. 



This is the toughest man on the Faculty. He 
got it from the alkali plains out West, where he 
used to shoot Indians as one would kill partridges. 
He is an enthusiastic golf player and general 
athletic man. He used to have an interesting walk,, 
but of late that has disappeared. He had the 
honor of accompanying the LTnited States army 
into Cuba, where he got sick. This was not all 
that he got; he also got a furlough. His army 
adventures while in that tropical island were numerous and varied, but 
each and every episode redounded to his valor and patriotism. He has, 
unwittingly, become the idol of the boys, and whatever he says goes. 
His running mate used to be Elsie, but of late they have parted company,, 
and the captain is going it alone; much to the disgust of Elsie. 



For the benefit of our man}- readers we 
would announce that this gentleman teaches 
English. He also writes English occasionally ; 
and it is published semi-occasionally. How- 
ever, the gentleman cannot claim as many 
rejection cards as we can, and we have often 
had the pleasure of reading doubtful sonnets 
and misty detective stories from his pen which gave him a large royalty. 
This gentleman's greatest characteristic is his versatility. He has been 
known to play divinely upon the accordion, to compose various dainties 
for the ear as well as for the palate, to cater to the eyes, and to officiate as 
bogus timekeeper in football fights. His favorite expression is, "Gentle- 
men, gentlemen ! " which is but natural, as he is a perfect specimen him- 
■^■elf. The only drawback to the character of this gentleman is that he will 
snap his camera and inflict his friends with pictures he does not want, and 
for which thev have no use. 



This gentleman is a Chinaman. He 
can read his own laundry bill as readily as 
we can read Ixdex manuscript. He can 
also talk Chinese ; at least we have been told 
so. We once heard him fighting with his 
laundryman, and the Chinaman appeared to 
understand what was going on. When this 
gentleman is not thinking in Chinese he teaches Chemistr}^ to a select 
few at college. His experiments in the classroom are noted for their in- 
complete results and their frequent explosions. He can get a student up 
to recite fewer times during a term than any other professor. When 
at home his time is spent mostly in smoking long-stemmed, small-bowled 
pipes, in which he places a pinch of brown sawdust and ravelings, which 
he calls tobacco. When abroad, he spends his time in a Chinese restaurant 
on Harrison Avenue, Boston, Mass., U. S. A. 



This gentleman keeps cows and corn. 
For a time he keeps them simultaneously, 
but, later, the cows absorb the corn. He is 
an expert farmer, and can tell a Southdown 
Tamworth from a Jersey bull. His knowl- 
edge of the care of Texas thoroughbreds and 
of Guernsey swine is only equaled by his 
erudite familiarity with the Devon Highland breed of race horses. He is 
a constant attendant at the county fairs, and generally he is surrounded by 
an attentive crowd of students, who hang breathlessly on his every word. 
His lectures are well patronized, and his recitations cut. As a man he is 
all that could be desired, and his ready smile is always an omen of good 
cheer; as a friend he is a great success, and as a citizen of Amherst he 
is very prominent. 



This gentleman comes from good old naval 
stock. He can trace back his lineage to old Jose- 
phus G. Lull, who was navigating officer upon the 
revenue cutter "Ark." At the present time the 
professor can point with pride to Santiago, Tampa, 
Montauk, and other noted places where his ances- 
tors established history. This gentleman can name 
every bone in the human skull without making a 
mistake, and can, if given sufficient time, say the 
list backwards. His chum is called Maude (with the final e), and he is 
very sensitive if this boon comradeship is made light of. The professor is 
an athletic man of the deepest dye, and has been known to enter the foot- 
ball field at this late day. He is a scorcher, and has ridden to Hamp. in- 
side of thirty minutes. Long runs are his specialty ; but when taking one 
he always carries an extra crank shaft, as he has never yet ridden tw^enty 
miles without breaking one.

This gentleman runs the football team. That's 
all he ever does. He collects all football subscrip- 
tions when he can, and pays all bills whether he 
can or not. For a side issue he teaches botany and 
writes treatises on " Nematodes," which give him 
a narrow local reputation. He visited Germany 
last year, but returned soon, as the German waters 
did not agree with him. As a fellow he is one of 
the boys ; as a teacher he is popular. His abilitv 
to draw a fairly good diagram has been highly spoken of, and his micro- 
scopic work is ever in demand. He can run over more botany collections 
in a short time than any other man. Altogether, he is a pleasant fellow to 
meet, a good friend to have, and a pleasing lecturer. 



We hardl}^ know what to say of this gentle- 
man. The ground has been pretty well covered 
already. His strongest point is his youthful face ; 
his age is doubtful ; but we feel safe in saying, in 
spite of the figure given as the date of his birth in 
the dedication of this book, that he is over seven 
and under forty-five. His forte in teaching is his 
earnest manner and impressive gestures. He is 
generally sprung on the Freshman Class with great 
success, and then given a rest for a year. His duties embrace the teaching 
of such subjects as naturally come under the head of mathematics, and 
many others that come under that head unnaturally. As a man and friend 
he is valuable, being generous, sympathetic, and kindly, and he always 
keeps open house for his students. His reputation as a mathematician is 
•only excelled by that of his late master, the eminent Mr. Bowser. 




This gentleman, although not directly^ 
connected with the Faculty, is, however, a 
very important individual. He can be seen 
at any hour of the day or night retailing 
his adventures during the Civil War. It 
was a misfortune that the gentleman was not 
drafted in the late Yanko-Spanko difficulty,, 
as his stock of army reminiscences would have been materially improved, 
and a new and more recent gusto added to his manner of delivery. Besides 
his interesting lectures on civil history, Mr. Wallace is an adept at trick 
bicycle riding, and it is said that he has accepted the United States agency 
for a make of wheel that is wholly vmique. This gentleman's performances- 
upon his wheel have been known to make the judicious weep. A lucrative 
engagement with a traveling variety show has been offered him, but he has 
inconsiderately refused it, so that he might remain here wnth his assistant 
professor of electricity. 



This is the most popular man on the- 
beach. He is, indeed, the only pebble on the 
campus. He is small, very small ; slightly 
nervous, and exceedingly enthusiastic. His 
presence at a football game has been known 
to please the visiting team. His voice is 
loud and pleasant while giving the "Old 
Aggie " yell, and his gesticulations are a study for any one intent upon 
entering the dramatic profession. His frequent altercations with 
the referee give a spice to an otherwise tame and uninteresting 
exhibition. This gentleman has a den under the old chemical 
laboratory, and when he is not walking on the tar walks he can 
most surely be found there. His principal occupation is the 
painting out of numbers that may happen to be placed upon 
the walk s and buildings by members of the various classes 
Altogether, this gentleman is a success from every standpoint.

Sujned, Qirit'f /3. @ooc(. 

Such is the pledge that all students entering x'Yggie are required to sign. 
"Two classes have already done so, — that bad, bold Class of Nineteen Hun- 
dred and One and their immediate charge, the Class of Nineteen Hundred 
and Two. Some objection was raised, it is true, before the " deeds" were 
-signed, for we know that all men hate to sign a pledge, no matter what may 
be its nature. Not that they are so highly in favor of doing the deeds which 
they thus sign away their ' ' privilege ' ' of doing, — not at all ; they fully realize 
Ihat such things would be far better left undone ; but the very thought of 
having to give a written promise to be good, appears to them as an insult or 
a disgrace to their manhood. And it is a disgrace to their manhood that 
rsuch a thing is necessary ; a real disgi'ace when we pause to consider that in 
this most civilized country on the face of the globe, and in the most civilized 
institutions in this country, there still exists a tendency on the part of the 
students to destroy property and to interfere with the personal rights of their 
fellow-students. It is an absurd thing to destroy property anywhere, a per- 
fect waste ; it is a loss to the owner, and no gain to the destroyer. But how- 
ever absurd it may be in other colleges, it is far more so in this institution 
that our State has established and maintains for us, and where she furnishes 
for us a free education and a fund on which we can live. All we have comes 
from her, and still we bite the hand that feeds us ; and then we feel as if our 


manhood is insulted when we are made to sign a pledge to refrain from a 
willful waste of State property. "We are being treated like children," we- 
cry. We have acted like children. 

Hazing, however, is a different thing. While it does not directlv 
destroy property, it does very often indirectly. What a crowd of boys will 
do when on a hazing expedition is hard to tell, but its chief objection lies in 
another direction. Hazing is the remains of an old barbaric custom of 
initiation, handed down to us, not by such means as we would be naturally 
led to believe any obnoxious custom to come, but through our institutions 
of learning, — a source whence should come nothing but the best and the 
purest that the days gone by can give. It is with pleasure, however, that 
we mark the rapid disappearing of the custom, which was so universally 
prevalent a few years ago, and it is of interest to investigate the cause of its 
disappearance, and to find the true reason why it is being done away with. 
It may be that people are beginning to realize the evil resulting from the 
system, and, in consequence, it is dying a natural death. It may seem so on 
the surface ; it should be so ; but those who have probed deeper and gotten at 
the truth know that, although the death might be natural in time, where it 
has died it has in nearly every case been hastened or brought about abruptly 
by some serious accident. Somewhere they will find a rnan crippled by a. 
bullet from a fellow- student whom he attempted to haze, or one crazed from 
the effects of cold water pumped upon a heated head by a reckless hazing 
party. This is the history of its death in many a college, and we should 
consider it a blessing if we covdd be rid of the nuisance by means of a simple 
pledge, and not wait for the climax to be capped by such means as it has- 
elsewhere. We have had enough; it is time to call a halt in that direction. 
Aggie must not be too slow in joining the procession, and, while they lead in 
the right direction, following in the footsteps of other institutions of higher 
learning that are further advanced than we. 

FRATERNITY It is with a feeling of encouragement that we notice- 

LuDOrtb. ^\yQ growing desire on the part of the different fraterni- 
ties to possess fraternity lodges. We believe this is good ; they draw the 
members together into a closer union and a deeper brotherly interest. They 
would remedy a long-felt want at Aggie — the lack of social life. A 
man's social training is as necessary to him as his manual or mental train- 
ing. He must receive it sooner or later if he wishes to make a success of 
life ; and is there any better time than while in college, or a better place- 


than at college? However, at Aggie it is very much wanting. There are 
but few social events during the year, — a hop or two, a few receptions, 
and the Militarv Ball. We are doing all we can with our limited means, 
but much is not possible. This is where the lodge houses will be of so 
much use. Look at any college where they do exist, — at our sister college 
to the south, for instance ; we read of a musical in such and such a house 
last evening, or of a reception in such a house. Think of the advantages 
these men enjoy ; the little wholesome pleasure is thrown in, and gives 
them vigor for their work and studies. When we enjoy such advantages, 
we will leave our Alma Mater and go into the social world and take our 
place side bv side with the graduate of any college. 

MILITARY The Military Ball is the greatest and the best thing 

BALL. (-|-j^^{- y^Q have in this line. That the student body did 

not realize the importance of this, and were so lax as to let one year 
slip by without the ball being held, is one of those queer, inexplicable 
things that are always happening everywhere. However, the result of the 
last dance can leave no doubt as to its practicability and usefulness. Great 
credit is due to the committee in charge, who pushed the affair through 
so triumphantly against the fearful odds of the misgiving of their own 
hearts and the doubts of the entire College. Now, this coming winter 
there can be no doubts, no misgivings ; we can all go into it heart and 
soul, and \xq will have a social event such as Aggie never heard of before. 

DISINTERESTED We have said that we are doing all that we can with 

STUDENTS. Qm- limited means ; in one sense this is so, and in an- 
other it is not. Many of us. Faculty and students, are working hard to 
bring about a more social life ; but in addition to the disadvantage of lim- 
ited means, we are obliged to work against a far more serious trouble, 
— we encounter a lack of interest among a portion of the students 
themselves ; the smaller portion, happily, but still a large enough portion 
to produce a feeling of discouragement in those who are endeavoring to 
do what they can to raise the standard of the College socially. It may 
seem sti'ange that such a state should exist; it may be natural, for man is 
often blind to his best intei-est. We suppose that it exists to a certain 
extent in every college; but in a college where there is a large number 


of students it is not apparent, foi" among the many it is easy to find 
plenty who are interested in such affairs. They do not miss the other 
element, — it is too unimportant ; would that we found it so. Being a 
smaller college we do miss the support of this other element. To make an 
affair a success, we must have the hearty co-operation of every man. 
When have a lecture, every man must be there ; when we have a ball, 
ever}' man must be present with his lady ; when we give a reception to the 
trustees, or to any one else, every man should feel himself to be the host, 
and should feel that the entire responsibility of entertaining the guests rests 
upon himself personally. 


MORE We do not purpose to enter into a long discussion on 

MhN. j-j-ig question of why we do not have more men in college. 

It has been well talked over, and plan after plan suggested, and many, 
to a certain degree, have been carried out ; still, the size of the entering 
classes do not give us much encouragement and hope for the immediate 
increasement in the number of students. We are very sure our alumni 
are all good and loyal sons of their Alma Mater; they respond readily to 
many of our calls for help, and they seem to have the welfare of the College 
very close to their hearts. But there is one call to which they do not 
respond, and seem to make no effort to do so ; it is our call for more men. 
It is on her alumni that every college depends for her new men, and it is 
on ours that we must depend for ours. It is true that our graduates are not 
holding the positions, and are not engaged in the occupations, which would 
bring them most directly into contact with young fellows who are looking 
for a college suitable for their wants. We have few men who are teaching 
school when we compare our number with the number of teachers from 
other colleges. Nevertheless, although thus handicapped, a little exertion 
would bring remarkable return. For example, look at the work of Fred 
A. Smith, of the Class of Ninety-Three. He is engaged in market garden- 
ing in Lynn, Mass., and from his town he has sent us this present year 
four good men. That is what a little exertion will do. If some of our 
other alumni would only exert themselves a little. We do not ask every 
alumnus to send us four men every year, but we would like one man 
every four years. 


HONOR A mutual agreement has been arranged between one 

SYSTEM. Qf Qy^y classes and its instructors. It is an agreement on 
the part of each to be, in all dealings of whatever nature with the other, 
square, upright, and honest. This system of placing full trust in each 
other's honor, is known as the "Honor System," and is to be used in all 
college exercises in which the parties entering into the agreement are con- 
cerned. Although the system has been in use for several months now, we 
must still call it an experiment, for its application has been limited to a 
iew, and those few make up the highest and most advanced class in the 
institution, — a class whose standing should, and probably does, place them 
above the need of any such arrangement. This affair corresponds exactly 
with that other affair, the matter of signing a pledge ; in one case it is a 
matter of signing a pledge to be good, and in the other of signing a pledge 
to be honest. It is a primary school method, where the solemnity of affix- 
ing his name to a document, impresses the youngster with such awe that 
he dares not break his promise. In a man such means should be unneces- 
sary ; his manhood and honor should tell him the right from the wrong, 
and knowing the right should withhold him from doing the wrong. How- 
ever, it does not always; men often act like children, and then they must 
be treated as children. As we have said, the "Honor System" is but an 
experiment yet, and requires more testing before it can safely be called a 
success. One of our Expei'iment Station officials has said, "I am never 
satisfied with an experiment until I can obtain the same results at least four 
times." Accordingly, if he wishes to determine the generating power of 
certain seeds under certain conditions, he divides his whole lot into four 
portions and treats each portion in precisely the same manner, and draws 
his conclusions from the four results. Our College is already divided into 
four portions; we wonder will the experiment ever be tried upon each 
portion, and if so how would the results compare? 

ATHLETIC In the southern part of the town we have a sister 

UNION. college ; not vei-y loving sisters have we been, to be sure, 

l)ut with a little effort on both sides all difficulties might be smoothed over, 
and we could become quite friendly. This effort should be made, especially 
when the doing so might prove so advantageous to us both. It is said that 
two colleges cannot exist in the same town and both prosper in athletics. 
This may be true and it may not ; we think it is not if affairs are managed 


properly. If the two set up for rivals, and are evenly enough matched to 
be formidable rivals, a great deal of unpleasantness v^ill undoubtedly arise ; 
if, however, they put all rivalry to one side, and use each other to develop 
themselves, the result would be good feelings toward each other, and a 
strong team to represent each, and, as a natural consequence, victories over 
all outsiders. The situation in Amherst in regard to these things might be 
improved. We have shown that we can be quite a formidable rival to 
Amherst College, — quite enough so as to cause her best men to work their 
hardest when we meet, — but we all know the feelings that result from such 
meetings ; to say the least they are not very sisterly, or brotherly either. 
However, if, instead of doing as we do, we should use each other for a 
practice team, and practice together during the entire football and baseball 
seasons once a week, twice -a week, or even every day when not engaged in 
a regular game, both teams would become used to some little opposition, 
and would go out and meet their opponents, not like green recruits, but 
like old war veterans. Why, with such a combination this old town of 
Amherst would ring with victories such as she has never seen before, even 
in her would fantastical dreams.

OWN from the campus to green field and heather, 
Ripe in the perfumes of rare June weather, 
Touched by an artist whose secrets untold 
Speak in the vision of red, green, and gold, 
Wanders the Pilgrim from manhood's unrest. 
Knowing such richness spread forth for a guest ; 
Welcome, thrice welcome to board and to sup 
With the past and the present o'er one loving cup. 
Hand-grasps and greetings to link with allov, 
Days of maturity to those of the boy. 

For his delectation flowers bloom anew, 
Jeweled as for bridal with opalescent dew ; 
Homely in meadows where kine graze all day, 
Stately in garden 'neath shadows of bay. 
Laugh they, and speak all the greetings to one 
Who, lingering, muses on what time has done. 

To the trees that we planted, now sturdy made 
By wind, rain, and sunshine, an ample rich shade 
For the rest of the noon hour, on cushions of green. 
As merging their wealth into emerald sheen, 
Low whispers in murmurs their tale of the dead. 
Who lie with the memories of happy hours fled 
In slumbers untempted to wake for the call 
Of the seekers who wish but to batter the pall 
Of friendships and troubles, too sacred to tell. 
Slain in life's battle and draped where they fell. 


Birds that are spring-born their song toast this hour, 
Their monarch, the Present, wields despotic power ; 
Bells in the towers and beats of the drum, 
Join in a wedlock the days that are done. 
Holy and solemn, with those that may be 
Now shaping great destinies on land and sea ; 
Building with wisdom thrones in an age. 
Electing the ruler, charging the page ; 
Giving to leaders the might which they hold, 
Labeling the dross, revealing the gold. 
Voices in chorus and songs on the wing. 
Tremble in cadence and unchallenged ring 
Over the turrets, through the loved halls. 
Comrades in praises, where learning enthralls, 
Drink at the fountain of knowledge and truth, 
Changing to man's garb the vesture of youth, 
Seeing, with eyes trained, the clearest of light. 
Flecks in the sunshine and beams in the night. 

As children have sung 
By a fireside reformed. 
So we sing Alma Mater 
On our old college ground.

In ConctQ^ion. 

■\ 1 /■£ are done ; our work is over ; our task is finished. Kind reader, who 
" ' has perused our little book with care, to you we say we hope you 
are pleased. We aimed to please, and trust that we have been successfvd. 
If you have found your name in a prominent place, take the situation cheer- 
fullv : remember no malice goes with it ; forgive us, pass it over, and laugh 
at your neighbor whose name is in a more prominent place than your own. 

We wish to thank those who have helped us in our work in any way : 
those who have given us kind advice or contributed to our literary columns. 
We thank our advertisers, without whose aid it would be impossible to 
publish our work ; and we trust that they will receive the entire patronage 
of the students and the friends of the College. We thank the Boards of 
the Classes of Ninety-Eight and Ninety-Nine for what assistance they have 
rendered us ; and while we extend our heartfelt sympathy to editors of the 
next Index, we will be happy to aid them in their great undertaking in 
any way that we may be able. 

With malice toward none, and good will toward all, we will make our 
bow and say, " Adieu."

it correctly and efficiently in the expression and enunciation of thought. As a 
means to this and other ends, Latin may be taken as an elective in Senior year.

the student means of acquiring a sufficient mastery of the languages to have

1,500 species and varieties of plants and types of the vegetable kingdom, 
cultivated in the Durfee plant-house ; the large collections of Amherst College 
within easy access ; a farm of about 400 acres, divided between the agricultural, 
horticultural, and experiment departments, embracing every variety of soil, 
offering 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. 
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 ham furnishes the best facilities for 
storage of crops, care of horses, cattle, sheep and swine, and management of 
the dairy; it includes also a lecture room for instruction. For the veterinary 
department a new and fully equipped laboratory and stable will soon be 
finished, where bacteriology and the diseases of animals will be studied.

Dress Suits to Rent. Amherst, Mass. 



The Retail Tailor 


in recent years by the prog- 
ress made in scientific wholesale tailoring. The make- 
to-measure man is at a disadvantage from the start. 
He has to pay about tlfty per cent more for his cloth, 
linings and trimmings, and nearly one hundred per cent 
more for his tailoring than the wholesale tailors. This 
is because where he buys one piece of goods the whole- 
sale tailors buy five hundred pieces ; where he employs 
one tailor who labors in the old-fashioned manner, the 
wholesale tailors employ thousands of skillful tailors, 
who have every mechanical aid, and work in scientifi- 
cally ventilated tailor shops, producing the highest ex- 
amples of fine tailoring at the minimum of cost. 

These are some of the 
reasons why it is possible for 
us to sell clothes bearing 

this label, \is¥^ 

which are made from thoroughly dependable fabrics, 
elegantly trimmed and perfectly tailored, and are sure 
to fit the minute you want them at half make-to-measure 
tailors' prices.
