T " be (Cremation of TVliss Ptlgie About the middle of the fiUl term of our Freshman year, feeling that ' 87 ought to distinguish herself by establishing a precedent, the idea of a cremation was broached and at once assented to by the class. The last night of the term was unanimously agreed upon and arrangements were made accordingly. The procession was long and imposing ; first came Allen the High Priest, resplen- dent in glittering robes, next the sombre hearse escorted by the Vestal Virgins Then came the Master of Ceremonies and the North Amherst Band well supported by white-robed mourners bearing aloft torches and transparencies. Starting from the Botanic Museum the route was by Prof. Maynard ' s to Dr. Miles ' , thence around the Farm- House, up the Count} road and down the " Path " to the campus, heedless of the howls of ' 86. Arriving at the Pyre the High Priest incensed it, the body of Miss. Algie placed thereon and the pile ignited. Shaughnessy then delivered the Oration, followed by a Poem from Barrett. The Class Choir then sang the following dirge set to appropriate music : — Let us sing of Algie Bra, All we have ever heard or saw. Let us tell the story clear, Now she is dead we need not fear. Multiply this and substitiite that, Put some cribs into your hat, On your cuffs write theorems clear, Whisper low so B. won ' t hear. Now for Algie weep and moan, While we stand here sad and lone. To her ashes say Good Bye, Roiurd her bones groan and sigh. The Choral dance was then performed, led by the High Priest and Vestal Virgins, and then all repaired to the Boarding House where an abundant collation was served to all, including ' 85, who had rendered us such excellent assistance.
