But let those, who thus delight to appear superior, remember that we do not claim to have reached perfection, but like themselves, we are learning the lesson which experience alone can teach. In presenting the eleventh volume of the Index to the public, we have kept up the established custom, and have pro- duced, we trust, a literary gem, which will shine by its own unaided light among all its compeers. In its compilation, we have preferred to follow the arrange- ment of former Indices, rather than ape the Olio, as did our illustrious predecessors. We are happy to inform the friends, yes, and the enemies too, of the College, that now it is practically on a self-sup- porting basis, and although for a time its efficiency may be crippled somewhat by the severe measures of economy which it is necessary to practice, yet in the near future we hope to see it rise, stronger, from obstacles overcome, and better, for victories won. THE I NDEX. During the past season the state, somewhat as a man puts money into a contribution box, paid off the college debt, and now commands the institution henceforth to shift for itself. In obedience to these instructions, an entire revolution has taken place. President Clark, who for twelve years has planned and guided its affairs, resigned on the first of May, and the Trus- tees elected Hon. Charles L. Flint to fill his place, as nominal president, without salary. The next " cut down, " and one quite severely felt, was that of H. W. Parker ' s professorship, mental and moral science, and although this is in part made up by hired instructors? still it cannot be made good. The disappearance of veterinary science from the curricu- lum is greatly to be regretted, and it is earnestly hoped that in some way lectures may be given by a competent, practical veterinary surgeon. A subject which is of such vital impor- tance ought to be thoroughly understood by every one who has the care of animals. Class work, always irksome, is now made doubly so by the lack of any compensation. Now each student is compelled to work six hours a week, for nothing per hour, and pay his own board. Truly the times are returning when love shall again be the reward of labor. The new custom of leasing the rooms to the students, which grew out of the revised order of things, promises to be its best feature. Certain it is that far less destruction is done to public property than formerly, and the students take more pride in the appearance of things for which their own pockets are responsible. TH E I N DEX. We are glad to see that the matter of discipline is at last receiving some attention, so that, hereafter, they who steal government property and they why steal private watermelons will be alike severely punished. Military still holds its prominent place in our course, and under our able Lieutenant we are fast gaining that knowledge of its various departments which makes the farmer the defend- er, as well as the supporter, of the nation. To taste a little of the real soldier ' s life, we did hope to enjoy a few days of camping out, but the Faculty, after mature deliberation, de- cided that it weie better for us to forego this pleasure. We were disappointed, on our return in September, to find so small an entering class, but feeling that this is due to a lack of information in regard to the College, we earnestly hope that the President will take means of keeping the insti- tution before the public, so that young men may know where to get a liberal, scientific education, and so that any of our friends who are about to die, may be reminded to leave us a modest bequest. We would like also to encourage the students in all matters of public improvement. Keep up the planting of trees until all the walks and drives become the foundations of shady paths and avenues of later years. And then, when, as an Alumnus of M. A, C, you once more visit dear old Alma Mater, you will linger long beneath the shade which you and merry classmates helped to make. Although we were assured by the disappointed printer, who didn ' t get the job of printing our Index, that we couldn ' t THE I NDEX, afford to publish such a work where there were so few to pat- ronize it, still we have come out more than square, and thank the aforesaid printer for his advice, and also the fellows for their liberal patronage. With these preparatory remarks, we present to you the Index, hoping that you will find as much pleasure in its peru- sal as we have had in its editing, and then we shall feel repaid for our labor. X ' — 9» ti: y rNHE time has come when we must offer ovir fourth and v last contribution to the Index. We have often had to note changes in our number, so that the valedictory will be written in behalf of but a remnant of the entering class. With no less sorrow do we perform these last duties of stu- dent life. In looking over the three years past, many unexpected events have occurred, many false impressions been removed, and much that is useful and enduring has been added to the character of the actors. We have begun to appreciate our own ignorance. Unsenior-like as this may seem, it is a primal and neces- sary step in the pursuit of knowledge. Tedious and slow though the taking account of stock is, still the merchant deems it one of the first necessities of his business. Equally important is it for the student to know his capacity and his attainments. Yet the lesson is never learned by the majority of college students. Seniors have gone forth with the pre- sumption and self-assertion worthy of Sophomores. In proof, note the tone and style of graduation essays. Subjects are there treated and disposed of, which doctors and philoso- phers would hardly dare to pass judgment upon. Then we would still wish to be considered Freshme7i. so far as that in- dicates m.odest demeanor and a due regard for the rights of others. We have been sorry to note a gradual decline in col- lege administration. This is manifested not only by the pub- lic voice throughout the state, but also in the curriculum and faculty. There has been a curtailing- of facilities for study and a doubling up of professorships, and finally, the trustees have concluded, in view of our straightened circumstances, that we can dispense with a Head. 12 THE INDEX. It would not be well to close this communication without leaving an earnest injunction to under classmen to keep up the college spirit; strive to render the Index broader and more representative in character; encourage and support all means of literary improvement; cherish and preserve all the incidents and reminiscences of college life and they will be sources of pleasure and profit to you in after years; strive to develop manliness of character, independence of spirit and obedience to law and God. s. »» Mil to gradually do the seasons change that we scarcely real- ize the passing away of summer until it is gone and we are startled by the first chill breeze of autumn. While engaged in the performance of our Sophomore duties, we dreamt not of the progress we were making ; but now, as we awake to the stern realities — and sterner ab- stractions — of Physics and Dutch, we know that we have changed. We have arrived at the golden season of our col- lege course, when the fruits of our endeavors will begin to assume the forms in which they are to appear before the world. And we hope that, at the final dissipation of the storm raised by the too serious consideration of a harmless, practical joke, a prosperous sun may continue to shine upon our class, ripening its members into worthy representatives of the dear old Aggie Farm. The past year has been an eventful one for the college, and many are the changes that have taken place. While we rejoice to learn that the condition and prospects of the institution were never better than at present, we can- not but mourn the loss it has sustained by the resignation of a President, who, working always for the good of the college, commanded the respect and won the heart of every student who knew him. One of our professors also, has left us, to enter upon a new and broader field of labor. Our best wishes for them both are that they may be as highly appreciated in the future as they have been in the past by the class of ' 8i. Although, as yet, we hardly know our new President, we welcome him, trusting that he may succeed not only to the office of the old, but also to his high place in our regard. 14 THE INDEX, As Juniors, we naturally feel an interest in the welfare of ' 83, and are sorry to see so small a class. Surely, there must be many young men who need and desire just what our course will furnish. It is to be hoped that means will be found to bring the college to the notice of all such, so that our next Freshman class may be more numerous. We miss from our own ranks many of those who have ac- companied us over the first half of our way. With feelings ot regret at their absence, we wish them all possible success in their various pursuits. But our numbers, notwithstanding this dropping out, are increasing, and we welcome those coming from another class to adopt our standard and to sup- port our cause. In the future, as we have ever in the past, let us stand firmly united for the honor and glory of ' 81. R. RESHMAN year has passed, and with it many happy scenes have vanished. The mantle, which we as Freshmen wore, is an honor to Aggie and a glory to ' 82, but we have laid it aside, and may it be looked upon by those who follow us as an emblem of success. Our first year at college was by no means one of ease ; our pathway was not wholly strown with roses, for, now and then, our tender feet discovered a thistle or thorn in the way, dropped unintentionally, perhaps, by some careless hand. But now our wounds are healed, and the dark clouds of dis- appointment, which obscured for a season the youthful hopes of some, fled away when the Faculty exclaimed : " Members of ' 82, come up a little higher, that you may view from your yet humble sphere the glorious realities of our intellectual superiority. " The Freshman class is smaller than was expected, and one would think that they came from a " land flowing with milk and honey, " judging from the appetite which they have for the former. They generally indulge in a cup of their favor- ite beverage just before retiring. It is also evident that tliey must have been acquainted with the fact that " body and mind need rest, " for at the first they endeavored to habituate themselves to early retiring. It is hardly worth while to speak of the " rush, " for it would only bring to mind the unhappy feelings experienced by poor " Freshie " on that fatal night, " When trembling with fright From the campus he came, To seek for seclusion and rest. " 16 THE INDEX Our numbers have somewhat diminished, some having en- tered higher classes, while others have left their college home to cope with the sterner realities of life. We wish them suc- cess, and only hope that as they mingle amid the busy scenes of the world, and are loaded down with its responsibilities, they will occasionally find time to cast a simple thought for ' 82 and their Alma Mater. The work of the year has commenced in good earnest, and our success depends, as heretofore, upon hard work and close application. Classmates, let us not tarnish our hard-earned fame by unfaithfulness to duty, but rather strive more dili- gently to reach a higher degree of perfection. w. (O " J ' ItqHIS is our first contribution to the Index, and we hope 0) that it may compare favorably with those of our prede- cessors. We have not been here long enough, as yet, to get into the ways of the college, although we have got into the way of those charitable (?) fellows, the Sophomores, who ' s barber-ous manners show that in one short year they have been enabled fully to understand and appreciate the meaning of the word " Hero. " It is also exceedingly hard for us to understand how that out of a class of three-score and ten Sophomores, enough could be found to rush a dozen Freshmen. It was certainly nothing short of a miracle. But enough ; we were fairly beaten and as fairly own it. Our thanks are due to our friends, the Juniors, for our " settings up " exercises, and also to the Sophomores for their motherly care of us, hoping that at a time not far distant we may have the honor (?) to be ranked as Sophomores our- selves, and then we will see that the class of ' 84 has its rights respected. Their slumbers shall be like unto those of a log, neither shall their rest be broken by those enchanting solos, which are produced by the reed instrument commonly known as the fish-horn, on which some of our students are exceed- ingly proficient. Classmates, we have now fairly entered into our college life with all its pleasures and sorrows, the work and recrea- tions, with all the modern facilities for helping us, and the THE IN DEX, best of helpers. Let us do our part, each one to the best of his ability, remembering that what we learn here is all for our future prosperity and happiness, and that the more thor- ough we are while here, the more successful will be our pur- suits in after life. h.

Since the last issue of the Index, many changes have taken place in the management of the college, in which every alumnus feels a deep interest. The first and most important change was in the resignation of President William S. Clark. All must admit that this was a serious loss to the college, and that it will be hard to find a man capable of filling his place as a teacher, for very few have the faculty of making a recitation as interesting as he. For nearly twelve years he stood at the head of the col- lege, and carried it, as it were, single handed through many a critical period, and kept it from becoming — like many of the agricultural colleges in the United States — an institution with- out students, and consequently of little practical value ; for an institution like ours is founded to educate young men, and if it cannot offer inducements to draw students in sufficient numbers, it falls short of accomplishing the greatest good to the state that founded it. I think I speak the sentiments of every member of the Alumni, when I thank the state for paying off the debt under which the college has been struggling for so many years, but regret that it did not go a step further and make the tuition free to every young man in the state fitted to enter its doors, as the past year proves conclusively that there are plenty of young men in the state who would gladly enter our college, if they could have free tuition. The trustees have done all that lies in their power to lessen the expenses of the students, by reducing the tuition from seventy-five to thirty-six dol- lars per year, but even this sum prevents many a young man from entering, as one hundred and forty-four dollars looks like a large amount to one who is obliged to work his way through college, and we sincerely hope that the legislature, the coming winter, will give the college money enough to make tuition free in the future. The appointment of Charles L. Flint, Secretary of the State Board of Agriculture, as acting president, until it was deemed advisable to elect a regular president, was perhaps the best thing that could have been done under the circum- stances, but we regret that, while the college is located in Amherst, the president resides in Boston, and is, therefore. 68 THE INDEX. unable to get at the true " inwardness " of student life that he could, from daily contact with them. As we look back upon our college days, many pleasant rec- ollections present themselves. There were days of work and days of pleasure. Ir was our hands which dug up hedge rows, removed fences and cut down several old apple orch- ards scattered about the college farm, that for a time supplied the students with fruit. We " killed the goose which laid the golden egg, ' ' but taking everything into consideration, it was probably best to have them out of the way, for the faculty wanted more than their share of the fruit. This of course caused much inconvenience to all parties concerned. To se- cure our share, we were obliged to take up carpets, remove boards from the floors and deposit our fruit beneath them. Sometimes the faculty would barely give us time to put our rooms in order for inspection, before making us a call and asking if we had any apples in our rooms. We never had any (and they never found any). I hope the farmers who live in the vicinity of the college have learned to value educated labor more than in the earlier days of the institution, and are now willing to pay something for it. lean remember when one would not even give a few walnuts to two students, who, at the peril of their lives, mounted the trees, (which he did not dare to do) shook off the walnuts, and gathered them up, only asking for one half to pay them for their time and expense of coming to college to show farmers the value of educated labor. But then " a wise man is said to be a fool in the company of a fool, " so we will let it pass, simply exclaiming : When will farmers learn to appreciate the value of an education. ' It would take volumes to enumerate all that took place during our college days to make time pass pleasantly; it would bring together a strange mixture of things and cir- cumstances, for mock trials and rushes, sheep, donkies, chickens and buggies all helped to lighten our labor. If these few pleasant reminiscences shall help bring to mind others that happened in those good old college days, and cause a smile to lighten up the perhaps now wrinkled brow of some fellow student, as he struggles to provide for the " inner man, " your humble servant shall think he has not labored in vain.

' ' CLASS MEETING, HELD JUNE 16, 1879. Pres. W-ld-r : — Fellows, we meet to see what we shall do " Freshman night. " The faculty have agreed to give us ammunition and the use of the cannon, if we will not make any noise after midnight with college property. Shall we accept their terms ? After considera ble discussion it was decided that it would be more economical to do so. Mr. Kn-wl-s : — Before adjourning, I would like to cau- tion the fellows against saying anything outside for the Soph- omores to get hold of. We don ' t know their business, and we don ' t want them to knoio ours. CLASS MEETING, HELD JUNE 23, 1879. After the disappearance of the cannon. — Faces " the reflection of heaven ' s own blue. " Pres. W-ld-r : — Fellows, you all know what the meeting is called for. We are not smart enough to cope with the Sophomores, so the class captain and I went to Lieut. Morris to ask his help. Of course we didn ' t put it in those words, but we asked him if the faculty were going to keep their agreement. He said they would try to, but if they can ' t, what shall we do .? Mr. C-CHR-n : — " Of course we are all sorry that this thing has happened, but we don ' t want to admit that it is a roast on us, for it isn ' t. It ' s a roast on the faculty. And Lieut, suggest- ed this plan : To ask the senior and junior classes to call class-meecings and decide whether we are roasted or not. Then we will have three classes against one, and they will have to give in. " 76 THE INDEX.

Mr. Ab-rcr-mb- : — " Mr. Jackson, I believe, has a plan to present to the class. " Mr. J-cks-n : — " On talking the matter over, some of -us decided that it would be a good plan for us to hire the cannon from Northamp. and bring it over here to fire. " (Poor fools, couldn ' t see that this was but acknowledging the roast on themselves. — Eds.) Voted to wait to see what the faculty would do. CLASS MEETING, HELD SEPT. 29, 1879. Pres. W-ld-r : — " Fellows, this meeting is called to make some demonstration in regard to the action of the faculty in suspending Kinney, Johnson and Myrick. I would like to hear what you think we had best do. " Mr. W-rn-r : — " Mr. President, I think that no member of the class of ' 82 doubts but that the faculty have shown partiality in their recent decision. Look at all ' 81 has done since they have been in college! And what have the faculty done! they suspended them during vacation, and then allow- ed them all to come back, but now for what little our fellows have, see them indefinitely suspended ! " Mr. C-chr-n ; — " Mr. President, I think we want to stick by the fellows who have been suspended. They are promi- nent men in our class. See what the one of them, who is our class captain, did for us on Freshman night!!! The other two, also, have stuck by us, and we ought to stick by them. I, therefore, move that we all agree to abstain from all college exercises till the faculty let these men back. They can ' t more than suspend us, and if they do, they will have to let us back. They can ' t run the college without our class (?) " Mr. W-rn-r : — " I do not agree exactly with Mr. C-chr-n. There arc two ways to drive a mule, and it is best to use per- suasion before you begin to beat. " It was finally decided, in accordance with Mr. W-rn-r ' s idea, to persuade the faculty " mule " before they beat him. " CSf ce, ) E. S " Of course you know that I know all about this. " " Oh !

Chap, Bao fri( Manty, s To the Trustees of the M. A. C. Gentlemen : In making out this, my first annual report, I have been surprised at the amount of sickness prevalent among both Faculty and students. In most cases the causes have been very evident and, in the future, should be guarded against. Several cases of cholera infantum have occurred under my supervision, and in all of these, the indisputable cause has been, the eating of too unripe fruit from the " Tree of Knowl- edge. " Irregularity of attendance upon recitations has so effected the ra ki g pulse in some instances, that it rarely beat over fifty per hour, and the patient ' s life has been saved only by applying rubber cloths to the conscience or by bolstering up the back with condition pillows. A skin disease, greatly marring the appearance, has broken out quite extensively in the form of an abnormal growth of hair on the upper lip. The most efficient remedy for this, I find ' to be simple nursing, which will almost invariably cause it to die out in time. The summer complaint for cattle shows had its victims, but no fatal nor very severe cases. I have been called upon to treat one case of temporary insanity, in which one of your worthy professors showed the unbalanced tendency of his mind by cutting up curious antics on a chapel settee. Quite a large portion of his hair had to be removed in the operation of trepanning, and it has since shown no disposition to grow again. I am aware of the very injurious effects of tobacco upon the students, but what can I say or do, when one, who is so K 82 THE INDEX. old that his memory fails him on so common a thing as the Lord ' s Prayer, when such a patriarch sanctions its use by chewing that abominable fine cut? Softening of the brain has its stronghold on one victim. The sufferer imagines himself to be First Lieutenant ot the U. S. Army, and his faithful watching of government property would be truly absurd, were it not for its honest simplicity. There has been one case each of the following : — Paralysis of the tongue, perverse deafness, and wind colic. But that which has threatened the most terrible havoc in thinning out the members of the college has been the " larce- nical mania, " so called. No less than a $15,000 stroke fell upon six members of Eighty-One, who, although their lives have been spared, are still in a critical condition, and it may require several months of Deer Island or Sing Sing climate to restore them to " full and regular " health. I must urge upon you the necessity of preventing the spread of this dis-- ease; if nipped in the bud, it will do very little damage. If proper care is taken to prevent the Faculty from giving out too long lessons, and if that body be instructed to let off a man whenever he asks so to be, I think I can safely predict continued healthfulness for years to come.

It has been the custom in our college for several years past, for the Freshmen to have a celebration on the last night of the college year. Firing of cannon, bonfires, fireworks and other minor details, go to make " Freshman night " one of little rest in college. It has also been the custom of the Sopho- mores to frustrate, as much as possible, the plans of the Freshmen. In accordance with these customs the Sophomores carried out the following : On Friday evening, June 20th, the Sophomore class met and by a unanimous vote agreed to carry out that which after- wards transpired. It was arranged that seven of the class should, on the following night, dismount the three cannons, remove the powder from the magazine and conceal both in places which were to be decided on the next day. The seven met at eight p. m., and made plans to meet again at one. A Sophomore went out to reconnoitre at nine o ' clock, and discovered that the Freshmen had a guard posted between the magazine and the cannon; immediately returning, he reported what he had seen. The Sophomores, supposing that a guard would be maintained all night, gave up their plans and all but two retired for the night. These two sat in a room without any light, for fully two hours, and, everything appearing quiet outside, they determined once more to inspect the situation. They went first to the cannon, then to the magazine, finding everything quiet and not a guard to be seen. One immediately set out down town on the run, to order the teams, which had previously been engaged, ready at a minute ' s notice; the other returned to college and, in stocking feet, proceeded to wake up the other five. On dress- ing, the six assembled and crept througli the corn field, west of the campus, to the rear of the magazine; here separating, THE INDEX. 87 they moved carefully to the front side, and thence to the cannon. Finding everything to be all right, they returned and burst open the magazine, which, by the way, was no easy matter, for the staple which held the door was firmly clinched on the inside. The powder was then removed and conveyed to the group of small pines to the north of the farm house. Then three of the seven went down town and brought up the teams. The powder was loaded first, and then came the tug of war — the loading of the cannon upon the wagons. Had they known how to dismount cannon, they would have saved themselves many hard lifts, but, as it was, the cap squares were remove d, and then five of the seven lifted the pieces by main force and placed them upon the wagons. The cannon only weigh 1250 pounds apiece, but the awk- ward position in which the five were placed, required the exertion of their utmost strength. One of the number had an arm caught under one of the trunions, and was severely wrenched. Having loaded the cannon, five started off with them, while the other two took the powder and concealed it in an old house about a mile from college. Just beyond the bridge, one of the horses on the cannon " balked up, " causing some delay. However, they soon arrived at their destination, unloaded the cannon and started back to college, arriving about 4.30 A. M. After dinner the next day, the Sophomores wrote to the Faculty, stating what they had done and promising to return everything to its place in perfect condition, in ample time for commencement exercises. The Freshmen recognizing the fact that they had been out- witted, asked the Faculty to aid them in recovering the can- non, claiming that they expected that that body would deliver everything they were to use into their hands on " Freshman night. " If they in reality expected this, why did they have the guard posted over the cannon on the previous evening ? Why did they have a guard to watch the chapel bell for three consecutive nights.

This work is offered to the public as an appropriate companion to Guizot ' s Popular History of Prance. The immense popularity of Guizot ' s France is a proof of the fact that the best class of historical works, pro- duced in the highest style of art, are fully appreciated by American book-buyers, and encourages the publishers to add to the series Rambaud ' s great work, which has won the unanimous approval of the press in this and all European countries, and has been crowned by the French Academy. A work thus honored by the high- est literary authority in. the world may safely be accepted by the American public as one which will be acknowledged as the Standard History of Russia.
