And from tliis time forth eacli clasfc!, in departing from the shades of this educational institution, will, in their turn, mark higlier upon the sands of time the suc- cessive careers of its usefulness. We as Alumni are yet young, bouyant, full of life, and unit( d, though Death ' s sickle has lessened our ranks upon four sad oc- casions. The many inhabitants of the State who lose no o])por- tunity to sneer at the idea, that to be a farmer, an education is just as necessary as in the following of any other pursuit, and those Avho look with distrust ujiou the very existence of the in- stitution, should bear in mind that it is still in one sense an experiment, and that from this circumstance it cannot help laboring under a disadvantage inherent in all new undertakings.

You who are now there will swell the number to fifteen. Think how each moment irresistibly is carrying you onward to the future, and how the opportunities for gaining knowledge at the Massa- chusetts Agricultural College are numbered. Strive that your minds may be the- better able to grasp the few remaining and make good use of them, is the only hint we will throw out as to your future actions. We look with interest for each succeeding number of the Index. We are living in that position, or angle, which allows 77
