YOUNG men desiring to secure a good, practical education at the least cost of time and money, will find that the liberality of the United States, of the Commonwe alth, and of numer- ous friends of learning, has enabled the Massachusetts Agricul- tural College to ofter exceptional advantages. The course of study has been carefully revised by the Trustees and Faculty, with the purpose of giving to the student such a training as will enable him to succeed in the practical woi ' k of life ; the aim being to discipline brain and hand, fitting the whole man for his sphere of usefulness, whether it be found in agricul- ture, in the arts and sciences, or in the learned professions. While books are not neglected, things themselves are studied and mastered as they are found in nature and in life. A thorough course of industrial training is secured by means of the various laboratories, and opportunities for manual labor afforded by the different departments of the garden and of the farm. Valuable discipline is acquired by the military drill that is given under the personal direction of a resident officer of the United States Army, specially detailed for the purpose. The completion of the new South College provides ample lec- ture-rooms for instruction, and pleasant apartments for students. The new and complete offices, laboi atories, stables and other buildings of the Experiment Station, so liberally endowed by the State, under the direction of Prof. Goessman, v ho is assisted by an able corps of chemists, enable students to familiarize them- selves with the latest discoveries in agriculture. The new Stone Chapel affords a suitable place for worship and for the meetings of the Young Men ' s Christian Union, that character as well as skill may be developed. The College is located in the midst of the most beautiful part of the Connecticut Valley, in a region easy of access, famed for its many educational institutions. A large number of free scholarships are provided by the State, and opportunities for self-help are offered to such as are glad to accept them. Catalogues and additional information may be obtained by application to the President. jf ••■ ■■ W ' KyI hunt. j i .

INDEX. ditopial THE four pleasant years of our college life, so full of unique and never-to-be-forgotten experiences, are rapidly gliding away, and the finger of time now designates the Class of ' 88 as the one destined to give to the Avorld the eighteenth volume of the " Index " of the Massachusetts Agricultural College. We do not claim great literary excellence for our book ; but it is our hope that its perusal may give entertainment to those into whose hands it may fall. Since the publication of the pi-evious edition of the " Index, " the group of divinities entrusted with the care of the College has been con- sidei-ably rearranged. At the close of the summer term of ' 86, President Greenough tendered to the Trustees his resignation from the service of the College. His place is occupied by Professor Goodell, who is meeting the needs of the institution with excellent judgment. Major Alvord, formerly connected with this institution as instructor in military science and tactics, now fills the chair vacated at the close of last year by Dr. Miles. Mr. Alvord is vigorously at work making many and necessary changes in the stock and equipments of the farm, and in the cultivation of the land. A new and capacious corn-crib has been erected dii-ectly west of, and in contact with, the farm barn. The large tract of swamp land in the valley west of the " campus " has been drained and bi-ought into a tillable condition, and the assortment of live stock has been much improved by the elimination of the poorer animals and the purchase of better. The College has been presented with a valuable Jersey bull, " Edithson " (8948), by Mr. Lawson Valentine, of Houghton Farm, New York. " Edithson " was sired by " Ramapo, " fourth son of " Eurotas " (2454). " Eurotas " gave 778 pounds of butter in eleven months. The dam of " Edithson " was " Lass Edith, " which gave six- teen pounds and fifteen ounces of butter in seven days. A fine young JX£ E. . Guernsey bull was a ijift iVoni Mr. Mkkri am. of WcstDU. The laiul, implements, etc., of the (arm have been carefully inventoried. Professor Alvurd is endeavoring to give us a comprehensive ami intelligent course in agriculture; but this subject is one which can be but poorly and incompletely mastered in the class-room, where we spend so much of our time in the weighing of theories and the adoption of conclusions. The Massachusetts Agricultural College cannot make a farmer of a man, — nor can any other college, — but it can give him a liberal, yet scientific and practical education, by virtue of which he may become a successful farmer in after years, and an honor to the commu- nity. Still, it must be that many who graduate from this College shall not become farmers. The Horticultural Department has completed another successful year under the careful supervision and direction of Professor Mayx.xrd. The ortice of foreman is held by Mr. Green, a graduate of the College, in place of Mr. Kingm. n. who recently accepted another position. One of the latest acquisitions of this department is a young alligator, which revels among the gold-fish in the aquatic room of the plant-house. We are glad that the professor of Zoiilogy and some of the kindred sciences is now a regularly-installed member of the Faculty, instead ot a visitor from some other college, as he formerly has been. The insti- tution has been so fortunate as to secure the services of Professor 1 " ' i:r- NALD. late of the Maine State College, at Orono, as instructor in these branches of science. We hope that the cabinets of natural specimens belonging to the Massachusetts Agrii ' iiltural College, which were so seriously disarranged at the burning of the old South Dormitory, will soon be rearranged in their proper form. The Cadets, under the supervision of Lieutenant Sacjk. are pursu- ing the usual course of study and drill. There are but two comjianies in the battalion as organized this year. The mortar drills have been rcndereti the mf)re interesting because the Cadets have had o] ] orluiiity to use the mortars in actual practice, throwing the shells down ' into the pastures west of the retioubt. New butts have been constructed at the rifle range, aiul the facilities for target |iractice are excelK ' iit. I ' nder the direction of Professor Wkli.incjto.n, the old Laboratory hat. been remodeled, so that very perfect opportunity is oflered the stu- •lentH for individual, jiractical work. INDEX. The new Experiment Station Iniilding has been occupied for some time bj Professor Goessman and his assistants. The plot of land east of the station has been broken in and underdrained. Professor Warner has piloted us through the mazes of Trigonom- etry and Civil Engineering, and has brought us to a state of equilib- rium in the midst of our course in Mechanics. The study of Calculus, Avhich comes in the Senior year, has been made optional, and several other changes have been made in the College curriculum. Dr. Walker, formerly at South Amherst, is a welcome addition to the Faculty, assuming, at the commencement of the year, the office of Instructor in Rhetoric and Psychology. Dr. Walker also occupies the pulpit on the Sabbath. Our students are considerably interested in Athletics, and would be more so if the College would expend the necessary few hundred dollars in the equipment of a gymnasium in the drill-hall or elsewhere. It seems as if this boon ought not to be denied the students. The foot- ball team has done fair work this fall, winning each of the two match games plaj ' ed. We welcome the Class of ' 90 as one of the largest that has entered college for several years. Let our young friends realize at the begin- ning of their course what they are here for ; and may they improve to the fullest extent the opportunities which shall develop for them while they are here. The four years spent in college, form one of the most cogent formative periods of a man ' s life, and one may often attribute his successes in later life, — or his failure,— to habits contracted while he sojourned among the halls of his Alma Mater. Classmates: Having added our due to the line of " Indexes, " we fall back into our places to plod onward toward our graduation day. If the book pleases you, we are satisfied; if not, let it become a forgotten thing of the past, without too harsh comment. At all events, we wash the ink from our fingers, and thank our stars that the trial is over. INDEX. of tt] ' li|ijiiij « J.VDE.W (goaPd of pa hee MEMBERS EX-OFFICIIS. His Excellency, Go .

S7 DKJNIFIKl) Seniors :it last I Our green Freshman, bold anil rock- less Sophomore, and la y Junior stages are past. As we look over the vears that are gone, we see that numer- ous changes have taken place in the circumstances of the College. The old buildings have been replaced by new and better ones. Mem- bers of the Faculty have come and gone. The different departments have been more fully equipped. Each move has been but a step on- ward. Never in the history of the College has the future looked so promising. Now, as the sun beams brightly above the horizon, it is our lot, classmates, to bid these pleasant scenes adieu forever. In looking back and regretting, let us not forget to look forward and hope. As we cast from our shoulders the mantle of college life, let the noble seed that has been implanted in us never lack for nourish- ment. To us is given the task of so caring for it that it may hrin forth thirty, sixty, or an hundred-fold. We have now but found how to study. We have only laid the foundation for work. While we may see where golden opportunities have been lost, we should use such losses as guides on our future path. The best day is when we pass out of society ' s praises into its uses. Then should we each ask. Am I going into the world to serve or be served by it. ' " Idleness is the devil ' s workshop. " May not one of us be an inmate. Nothing is truer than Hood ' s lines: — " Evil is wrought for want of tliought, As well as want of heart. " As we bid good-bye to our friends, let us cherish many pleasant reminiscences. Mav, thev assist us wiien in the aried walks of life, in attaining the highest in whatever we undertake. A high ideal is use- IcRR, however, imlcss there is high endeavor. Dr. Anuikr wisely re- marked to us, " Young gentlemen, if anything turns up to you, you ' ve got to turn it up. " You must build your ladder from the earth to the vaulted hkicH, and must mount it round by round. v. INDEX. junior Claee Secretary and Treasurer. E. H. Dickenson. ' 88 OFFICERS. President. J. E.

Before the spell (if its intlucnce be broken, and our recollections of it become some- what clouded, we will endeavor to give to the public a brief history of the incidents that have marked its progress. During the winter term our mathematical talent was employed in assisting Prof. W, rner to verify his work on mensuration, a fact which ought greatly to facilitate its reception into general favor. In connection with our course in civil engineering, we sur eyed boundless fields, ascer- tained the heights of distant mountains, raised imaginary embankments, made corresponding excavations, and learned the art of laying drains and sewers. Our brief but comprehensive study of physiology, so awakened us to a knowledge of ourselves, and so impressed us with the thought of the possibilities attainable to the human mind, that the latent forces which, it had been surmised might perhaps exist in some of our physiological units. became actual, and have since developed so rapidly that we no longer fear the power of the oppressor. Some of us had the privilege of trying for the Clark Prize, oflcred to the one who should pass the best competitive examination upon the subject. Although but one could come oft ' victorious, still we feel that the experi- ence gained and the benefits received fully compensate us for all our trouble. While on the excursion to the Bay State Fair in Boston, we, in com- pany with Prof. Fernald, visited Harvard College, with the intention of inspecting the Agassiz Museum, where we saw much that was of interest to UK in connection with our study of zoology. Some of us also availed ourselves of the opportunity, presented through the kindness of Prof. Maynari), to visit some of the extensive market gardens in Arlington, a trip by which we gained much useful information. INDEX. We have lost but one man since our last communication, leaving us twenty for our Junior year. ' 88 has entered zealously into athletic sports the past season, as the foot-ball records will show. If, unlike our immediate predecessors, we do not figure prominently as stockholders in some grand " South Sea Bubble, " the failure is not due to a poverty of energy and public spirit, but to the fact that we believe in counting the cost before building the tower. Classmates, our work at present is associated with the College, and is for its interest and our own ; but we should so strive that when, in after years, we look back upon the portion of our lives passed here, we can say that the discipline then received was not in vain. Remember that each day brings new and more arduous duties, which require prompt attention. Our college life, at best, will soon be over, and we shall no longer enjoy our present advantages. How essential, then, that we improve each moment while it is passing. H. ■ IXDEX. Jopl omor e Cla ' 89 Vice-President. R. P. Seli.kw. OFFICERS. President. E. A. Filler. Secretary. F. V. D.wis.

' 89 OUR first summer vacation has ended, and the class of ' 89 has returned to College to commence her Sophomore year full of zeal and energy and ready for hard work; and we now take pleasure in sending to the " Index " our second communication. The first era of our college life has passed, and will be remembered by us as a period full of enjoyment, and one by which we have been much benefited, and which has proven to our college mates that we are an indus- trious class. We have made excellent progress in our studies, devoting much of our valuable time last year to the studies of botany and agriculture, in the last of which we have made astonishing progress (. ' ). Our declamations have been noted as (scarcely) marvels of oratorical power, and two of our number expect to astonish the natives next June. In class sports and games we have often left the " campus " bearing the flag of victory, and have taught the Juniors that we are expert base- ball players, and the Freshmen that we are not deficient in foot ball. Our first class-supper took place on the eventful evening of June 10, 1886, and you may be sure we did ample justice to la viande before us. The affair was decided a complete success, and we now look forward to the time when we shall next assemble for a similar gustatory achievement. We have taken much interest in the Freshies, and having announced to them one dark night a meeting of the " Owl Club, " we proceeded to initiate several of them into the mysteries of that order. The past, with its victories and defeats, has gone from us like a dream, and let us not revert to it except to draw from the experience it has fur- nished, guidance for our conduct in the future. is. xnE.v.

' OO IN accordance with the time-honored custom of Freshman historians we begin bj complimenting the editors of the " Index, " and deprecating our own contribution, pleading, as an excuse for its crudity, our ex- treme youth and inexperience. Our class has entered upon its course of studj strong in numbers. Two men have already signified their intention of graduating with ' 89, and are now reciting with that class. Nevertheless we have thirty-three re- maining, with prospects of additions to that number in the future. In athletics we have not been backward in coming forward. When we first came to " Aggie, " while yet we were strangers to one another, we de- feated the organized band of Sophomores in the annual cane-rush. While we conformed to the custom, we failed to recognize its utility. In the tug- of-war, too, our gallant team completely outpulled the crack wire-pullers of the Sophs. In the foot-ball game we were vanquished by the Sophomores, not be- cause they were heavier or more muscular than we, but rather on account of a slight superiority given them by the experience which a year of col- lege life gives. However, in our game with the high-school team, our eleven came out victorious by a handsome score. Rumors of " Owl Club " and hazing have so far proven rumors only. As for the epithets, " Fresh " and " green, " we have heard them only from the lips of Sophomores. Is not this fact significant.? As a class, ' 90 has been, hitherto, orderly and law-abiding, and the members have shown their determination to be distinguished as students, rather than as ruffians. As the crafty Ulysses and the youthful Telemachus were dependent in so great a degree upon Mentor, so the Freshmen are helped and advised by the Juniors. ' 88 has not been remiss in her duty to us, and to the class as a whole, and to the captain in particular, we owe much of the success which has .attended us. INDEX. Classmates, we have just entered upon the first of our four years of college life. We are apt to think of four years, in anticipation, as a long time, but it will pass quickly, and as we look back upon it hereafter, we- shall Avonder at the rapidity with which it has gone. Let us, then, take ad- vantage of every opportunity which comes in our way, so that in future years we may have no occasion to look back with regret upon any misdeed,. or any time misspent, or any opportunity neglected. We have all made good resolutions for our college course. May we have the strength of purpose necessary for carrying out these resolutions. May we so improve our time while in college that when we graduate we may become honest men and useful citizens. G. INDEX. Vi ih ho tf G (gay ghahc F air SHORTLY after the return of the students of the M. A. C. to College, at the commencement of the fall term of ' 86, it began to be rumored about that the entire corps was to go to Boston to attend, at the invi- tation of the Bay State Agricultural Society, the first of a series of exhibitions to be given by that society annually. Facts continued to be scarce in regard to the matter, till, one morning not long before the fair was to be opened, the President made a formal announcement to the effect that we were to go to Boston, and that we should take a certain train on the morning of the 5th of October. On the evening following this announce- ment, the students held a mass meeting to discuss the question of apparel to be worn by the men. Some said that as military science was an impor- tant branch of study here, it seemed well to wear the uniform. Others said that as this was an agricultural college, we had better put some hayseed in our hair, and wear ovei-alls and cowhide boots. The majority did not seem to favor either proposition, so a compromise was effected and the students decided to go clad in the ordinary habiliments of the peaceful citizen. The morning of the 5th found us all at the depot, ready to take the -early express (.?) on the N. L. N. R. R., for the ride to Palmer. The train INDEX. was only fifteen minutes late, so we were satisfied; and after waiting for two people to come from Pelham to take a ride, we started off at a break- neck speed, running as much as twenty-one miles an hour, in order to make up for lost time. The engine was seriously fatigued by the unusual strain, but hopes are entertained of its ultimate recovery. After a ride of less than one hour we arrived at Palmer, where we disembarked, to await the coming of the Boston train. Soon we heard a voice announce the arrival of the accommodation, throughout the length of Avhich we were soon scat- tered. The passage to Boston was uneventful, and for the most part quiet, although a few fellows in the last car indulged in a little singing for the edi- fication of the other passengers. We announced our arrival at Woi ' cester, by whispering to each other ou r college yell in stentorian tones. ■ As soon as the train stopped at Columbus Avenue we all alighted, and proceeded to make a systematic search for the armory of the Boston Cadets, where we were to have our headquarters during our stay in the city. At last some one struck the right trail, the wandering ones were recalled, and the procession wended its weary way to the building. There we found a large hall — partially occupied by about eighty cot beds — where were to repose the tired forms of the students when darkness, overcast the earth and the electric lights were blown out. Valises, overcoats, etc., were deposited in places of safety, and the crowd departed to assault a neigh- boring restaurant, where each imbibed that sustenance for which he had been longing since morning. At 3 p. M. the battalion re-assembled at the armory for the purpose of receiving instructions from the authorities, and that each cadet might be given the ticket with which to deadhead his way into the exhibition build- ing. Then the corps was dismissed with the injunction that each individ- ual should take good care of himself — not stay out late, etc. — and turn tip promptly at nine o ' clock the next morning. Before the battalion left Am- herst, each cadet had been given a schedule of duties, to be performed each day at stated hours. At nine o ' clock the next day the duties of the day commenced, and the va- rious classes, under the guidance and paternal care of the several professors, examined with great interest and open mouth the various divisions of the exhibition. The fruit department was especially attractive, — the (sour) grapes and things there located awakening a wish in the minds of some of the fellows that the juicy products of nature were in a place as remote from civilization as the vineyard on the hill at M. A. C, or that the darkness of night might enshroud them for a few moments from the gaze of the observ- ing multitude. A band of wind-jammers strained sweet music from the tor- tuous mazes of their instruments at one end of this hall. ■ When the day ' s work was over, most of the students started down town. In the evening many of them took in the theater, where they had a real lovely time, you know. It is to be hoped that they did not go out between INDEX. the acts to see a man, but it would beer nimpossibility to say whether they did or not. Some visited the dime museums, where thej gazed with aston- ishment upon the objects and objections on exhibition. Many wandered about the streets, dazzled by the glare of the electric light, till called to their senses by the echoing of the midnight chimes through the squares and by- ways of the city. Then, with a nice perception of locality, they set out in ex- actly the wrong direction to find the barracks, and continued wandering till informed of their error by some lucky circumstance. Once at the barracks, they proceeded to retire for a quiet night ' s rest. But alas ! it could not be had. No sooner had the tired cadet begun to doze, when down upon his phiz came the pillow of his neighbor with a dull " cickinn " thud. This treatment naturally aroused his belligerency, and for the next few minutes there is a white mist of pillows, feathers, bedclothes, etc., obscuring that portion of the hall. Finally quiet is restored, — the referee declares the set- to a draw and pockets the stakes, — whereupon the whole community in- dulges in a free difterence of opinion. That ceases, and all is, for a time, so quiet that you might hear a cannon-ball drop. Then some one essays to sing: instantly the sound is smothered, as its owner is buried under a mattress. Soon one of the beds gets up on its white wings and commences to walk off to a remote corner of the hall. A careful inspection reveals the presence (underneath the bed) of a pair of legs, presumably the motive power. The engineer of this apparatus evidently designs to find quieter quarters. And so the circus continues till morning, when the cadets rise refreshed from their dreamless slumbers, ready to commence the work of the day. This sort of thing continues to the end of the story. The return trip to Amherst is a repetition of the other ride, except that it is a little more vociferous, so to speak. The next day the routine of college duties recom- mences, and the students compose themselves for work during the rest of the term. The afl ' air is voted a success, and the hope is expressed that a similar one may occur some time in the not-too-distant future. INDEX. w.. PERAMBULATION. CONTEMPLATION. ,fe3«i,H .; 5 a . INTERRUPTION. INDEX. il e F eVi ed 6oop 0 of ghady at bf e A.CI.6. THE time once was when the possession of a college diploma secured for its owner a position which aftorded a livelihood ; hut that time has passed. The world no longer asks of a young man, Where did you graduate? but simply, What can you do? Nor is the world satisfied with a mere verbal reply to this query — it demands deeds, not words. What are you? What have you done? These are the questions which must be answered satisfactorily by any young man before he can be trusted with affaii-s of importance. The university has its place as an institution for the increase of the world ' s stock of knowledge ; but for the practical purposes of life knowl- edge must net be the end, but the instrument. Without attempting to rival the universities, or even the classical colleges, the trustees and faculty of the Massachusetts Agricultural College have endeavored to i-evise the course of study so that at a moderate expense of time and money the young men of the State, who choose to avail themselves of the opportu- nity, may secure a practical education that will fit them for efficient service in their own sphere of life. The one object aimed at is to give the student the mastery of himself and of his environment. The principle is that he should study things themselves, rather than descriptions of things found on the printed page or sketched by the hand of the artist. The things of which knowledge is sought at first hand are the mineral, the vegetable, and the animal king- doms, natural forces, and the laws which control them. The earth itself is studied — its rocks, its physical features, its soils, its pastures and forests, its fields and gardens, — studied by means of the student ' s own senses, not by committing to memory what some one else has learned, or imagined that he has learned, and has written in a book. He uses his own eyes, ears, and hands. In the same way he studies the plants that grow up out of the ground before his eyes — plants that he himself has raised from the seed in field, and garden, and hot-house. He knows the plant from germ- cell to fruit, for he has himself seen it with his own eyes. Thus does he INDEX. study animal life from the insect to the leader of the herd. He knows the animals which are man ' s allies, and those forms of life which are the enemy of human endeavor. Then for himself does he gain familiarity with the physical forces which dominate the world. Heat, light, electricity, gravitation, chemical affinity, display themselves daily before his eyes, trained to scientific observation, and are made daily subject to his personal will. He knows how to master these, and he knows also how these servants, if they are defied, crush with omnipotent power and remorseless energy any one who ignores their true nature. He learns constantly by experience that the laws of nature and material things are so rela.ted that those relations may be expressed in mathematical formulie. To retain and utilize his discov- eries he studies mathematics, and records what he has learned. To make the best use of his knowledge, he finds that he must commu- nicate it to others ; so he draws a picture of the insect, the flower, or the house, and that he may do it well, he studies drawing. But the picture needs explanation, so he learns to write, good, plain English; and that he may do it thoroughly, he studies rhetoric. But he finds that his ideas, if they are new, are disputed; he therefore practices debating, so that he may dare stand up befoi-e men and defend his opinions. To do this well he studies English literature to see how other men have expressed their ideas. He finds a knowledge of words necessary; he studies Latin and French enough to comprehend, and so fix the more tenaciously in mind that large vocabulary of English words, scientific and technical, that come to us from the Latin and through the Frenc h. But the more he learns of things in this manner, the more does he become conscious of his power over nature. He finds himself not a mere atom of the universe, but an individual person, capable of knowing and controlling nature. But can he control himself. Why are his fingei ' s stiff and his eyes weak, and his ears dull.? Why does his brain refuse to work, and his stomach rebel.? Here military drill, and the study of physiology and psychology help him. Four years in uniform do wonders for the boy of fifteen or sixteen. The discipline straightens his shoulders, expands his chest, gives him a manly bearing, and teaches practically two very important lessons, attention and obedience, thus fitting him to be a leader and commander of men. Physiology teaches him how to take care of his body, and psychology how to understand, develop, and use to the best advantage his own mind. Thus does he grow in self-knowledge and self- mastery, and so does he fit himself to be master of circumstances and master of men. But there are in this world such things as trade and politics, both of which have much to do with material things and the individual man : hence to succeed the student needs to know something of political econ- omy and of constitutional history, that he may adjust himself to the social INDEX. system as well as to the physical system. This knowledge is gained dur- ing Senior year. Finally, there is a sphere of morals as well as of nature. The moral law is a factor — a very essential factor — that must be considered in its relation to natural law, if success is to be assured. This age demands not only smart men, but honest ones — men who can be depended on in a crisis to resist bribery, dishonor, injustice; to remain faithful unto death, whether his hand be on the lever of the locomotive, the wheel of the steamship, or the helm of State. It is not improper, therefore, that the best book of morals should be read daily in the room adjoining the chem- ical laboratory, and that the gospel should be preached in the library building, which is at the same time the chapel, whose spire points heaven- ward from the midst of gardens, fertile fields, and a smiling landscape. w. tM " ' INDEX.

CHAETONOTUS LARUS EHR., magnified 750 diameters. I, as seen from above; 2, as seen upon the side, without the side spines. yNohc 012 SI aehoDoha lai a ' SOME years ago I made a careful study of the microscopic forms occur- ring in the fresh-water streams, ponds, and other sources of water- supply in and about Orono, Me. Among the animals observed was Chaetofiotus larus EJir., which occurred in considerable abundance, and which appears to be equally abundant in the streams and ponds about Amherst. The descriptions and figures of this animal, given by Ehrenberg, Dujar- din, and in the Micrographic Dictionary, are superficial and unsatisfactory. To gain a more complete insight into the structure of this animal, I spent soine time in the study of its anatomy and habits. Chactonotus larus is very common in the fine debris over the bot- tom of ponds, streams, and springs, as well as in decomposing vegetable matters in watering-troughs and in cisterns which have no filters. I have found it at all seasons of the year, even in midwinter, in springs which are frozen over. 46. INDEX. These animals are about one two hundred and twentj-fifth of an inch long, oblong, rounded above, somewhat enlarged posteriorly, and armed on their upper surface with spines curving backward, those on the posterior part being the largest. The under surface is flat, and without spines, but with four longitudinal bands of cilia. Upon the head are four colorless eyes, or what appear to be eyes, and also four clusters of long, fine hairs starting out near the eyes, but a little below them. These appear to be tactile organs, as they keep them in constant motion, apparently feeling around as they move about slowly among the debris. The posterior end of the animal is bifid, ending in two tapering caudal appendages, which are quite flexible, each being composed of two segments, and with the tips slightly expanded into a disk. In the basal portion of each caudal appendage is a gland, with a duct leading from it, and opening at the end of the appendage in the center of the disk. From the movements of the animal I conclude that the disk serves as a sucker, and also that the secretion from this gland is adhesive in its nature; for, except when swimming, they stick the caudal append- ages to any convenient object and hold themselves in place, or swing them- selves to one side or the other, as they may desire. The mouth opens on the under side, close to the anterior part of the body, through a more or less hardened ring, and the oesophagus passes up vertically about one third of the distance from the mouth to the top of the head, where it turns sharply up and back at an angle of about 45° for about the same distance, when it turns again and runs horizontally toward the posterior end for about one third the length of the animal, when it expands into an oesophageal bulb. This opens into a straight intestine, which runs through to the anus between the caudal appendages. The oesophagus is surrounded by a thick, dense, muscular tissue of circular fibers, and the intestine is surrounded by a layer of large nucleated cells, outside of which is another layer of much smaller ones, which are more difficult to make out. Directly above the oesophagus is a globular bpdy or cavity, but I cannot conjecture what its functions are. In the median line, above the intestine, is situated the ovary, in which is developed but one g , at a time. This Q g is very large as compared with the size of the animal itself. The nucleus is plainly- visible even before the discharge of the egg from the ovary. The oviduct is easily traced to the outlet immediately above the anus. I have watched the development of the eggs many times ; and the young, when nearly ready to hatch, are of the same form and structure as the adult, but doubled up within the shell. I have also seen all sizes, from those just hatched up to the adult ; and though for want of assistance I have never been able to trace the entire development of one individual through, I have no doubt that these animals are never parasitic, and that they do not pass through any alternation of generations. INDEX. It is exceedingly curious and interesting to see, under the microscope, with what facility thej ' use the caudal appendages, — sticking them to the glass slide or cover in such a manner that, by careful focusing, one can see the sucker-like action of the tips of these organs while they sway about one way and the other in the Avater. At the same time the bands of cilia on the under side are in constant motion causing a current of water to pass along by the mouth, bringing their food in suspension, which they readily secure. Suddenly they let go from the slide, and the action of the cilia causes them to move rapidly through the water till they reach some new feeding-ground, where they again anchor themselves and fish for another meal. If a rotifer, or any other moving body, happens to touch even the very extremities of the tactile hairs on their heads, they instantly retreat, and shoot off in some other direction. To enable me to make out the digestive tract more clearly, I fed some on very finely powdered indigo and others on carmine ; but it was not a success, for they do not take to that sort of food kindly. I saw only one Chaetonotus take in a particle of the indigo, which readily and quickly passed along the oesophagus to the bulb, when it at once appeared to be- come conscious of having eaten some nauseating substance. It at once let go its hold with the caudal appendages, the action of the cilia ceased, and the Chaetonotus gradually doubled up a little, and then Avith a spasmodic effort it attempted to throw up the particle of indigo. A reverse peristaltic action of the muscles of the oesophagus took place, which was plainly visi- ble, sending the particle up about two thirds of the distance to the mouth, when the action ceased, and the indigo gradually went back into the bulb. This was repeated several times, after which all action ceased, and the ani- mal died Avithout a further struggle. For the purpose of making a more cai-eful study Avith higher poAvers of the microscope than I could use Avhile they Avere moving about so actively, I put a little cyanide of potash under the edge of the cover, and this, quickly dissolving and diffusing through the water on the slide, very soon killed them, and I was then able to make a more critical examination of their structure. Although these animals abound in the ponds from Avhich Ave obtain our water supply, we need have no hesitation infusing it, since the above studies show that these singular-looking animals are not parasitic at any stage of their existence, and can do no possible harm.

" Senior (whose stomach has been a little unsteady during the trip down the harbor, says as they land) : " I am glad to get back on terra-cotta again. " For ninety days only, as a special inducement to those wishing to purchase tickets to the M. A. C. Lecture Course, we will give with each ticket sold an authentic autograph of the Hon. J.

Woodbury. — " What I don ' t know about drill, don ' t amount to much. " It is unlucky to whisper in Prof. Fernald ' s room, or to cut drill on Tuesday. Prof. T-r-n. — " Mr. Shimer, where is the sternum? " Mr. Shimer. — " Sternum? Well, I think that must be in rear.

INDEX. ef ePi d topv li eideoh LISTEN, my children, and you shall hear Of the midnight raid, so strange and queer, Devised, projected, and carried through By the Freshman class, and the Juniors, too. On one dark night in the spring of last year. Professor Warner had often explained. By lips or chalk, from his rostrum stained, With his hand aloft on the nobl e front Of a massive brow, with many a grunt, Once, if sufficient, or twice if need be, X and Y being given, how to find Z, To the Freshman class that to Amherst came doAvn From every Bay State village and town, Attracted thither by Aggie ' s renown. So, for petty reasons and childish causes. Fired by a love of Juniors ' applauses. All this class, with perhaps an exception. Spurred on by the Juniors ' art and deception. Accepted a plan of a Juniors ' conception. Designed to bother, to tease, and to vex (Fearless of faculty, fearless of Prex) Him who instructs us in friction and statics, And all other branches of mathematics. A listener, but he remains incog., Concealed by the darkness, and shielded by fog, By chance returning from rambles nocturnal, Saw them execute the plot infernal ; And for reasons well known and specific. Del ivered the details to your poet prolific. As gathering darkness closed over the earth, Sounds are heard as of suppressed mirth ; Each Freshman hies him straight to his room, And lights from the windows through darkness loom. INDEX. Botany and algebra seem heavy as lead, And thoughts of them straightway he thrusts from his head, And at half-past eight betakes him to bed : He betakes him to bed, but not to dream, For his thoughts are fixed on his daring scheme; And the possible punishment, too, is a theme Which anon through his head all unheeded may gleam. Thus he waits and listens with eager ears, Until, in the silence around him, he hears The signal on which agreement was made For undertaking the nocturnal raid. They muster their men at the chapel door. Some in rubber-boots, in " sneakers " more. And, with stealthy tread, the young recruits Enter the hallway as still as mutes. They pass the door of the chapel room. And, in the fearful darkness and gloom, By the wooden stairs, with stealthy tread. They climb to the lecture-room overhead. They startle the mice from their nightly feast Of " crumbs of learning, " and from the beasts Start back, as if from shades of Profs, deceased. Each frightened Freshman feels increased The stiffness of his locks well greased; Nor is their terror ought decreased. Till one, a skeptic as to ghosts, Exclaims, " ' Tis but mice, or rats, at most ! " Then straightway they began the work ; Though many wished to, none dared shirk. Now there are in ProPs room, as each one knows. Of desks and chairs a half-dozen rows, Each fastened by screws to the wooden floor. Each desk by eight, each chair by four. With screw-driver, case-knife, the " ear " of a pail, With chisel and hoop-iron, and e ' en with thumb-nail, Each well-tightened screw they seek to pull out. And toss them carelessly round about. And if, by chance, a screw is capricious. Refusing to yield to Freshman malicious, He seizes the desk, and with haste expeditious, Either pulls the screws from out of the floor, Or, as happened in one case, if not more. INDEX. The cast-iron standards are broken asunder, And Freshie surveys, in well-feigned wonder. What he afterward called a " confounded blunder! " The gloom of night o ' erspread the land, So thick that one could not see his hand Before his face. With such tools as I have told, And hands benumbed by chill and cold. So that they them could scarcely hold, In such darkness as of old The gnomes were said to Aveld and mould Silver ingots and bars of gold. The Freshmen labor. But these are not so bold As to dare a lantern to unfold. And when the seats are torn from the floor. Each Freshman seizes one or more, And bears them down the wooden stairs As quickly and speedily as he dares ; For caution, you know, is one of the cares Which every rioter in his mind bears. They then divide, and take their departure Toward hash-house, vineyard, ravine, and pasture : The temple, the campus, and the sorghum-mill, And every conceivable place they fill. From the placid Thames to Rubicon ' s rill. No hedge, no ditch, no apple-tree, But has its desk, or two, or three; No stump, no hole, no woodchuck ' s lair, But has at least a single chair; And, by thorn, or limb, or splinter barred. Full many a d esk was rudely marred, And night ' s dampness caused to tarnish The brilliant surface of the varnish. The task is done, the work complete. And every Freshman deems it meet To retire to bed, his head replete With dire forebodings as to his feat. ' Twas twelve by Eighty-Seven ' s clock. Whose glaring blackness seems to mock The passer-by from out its tower of rock, As the band of Freshman vandals Began this greatest of college scandals. Long ere the gang had accomplished its deed, Morning ' s second hour on the watch-face they read. INDEX. You know the rest — you ' ve heard the tale : The Sophs and Seniors jeer and rail ; The Freshmen groan without avail; The Juniors their proteges bewail ; For soon as comes the morning light, Unearthed is the prank of the preceding night; And, without delay, the powers that be, Cause to be collected from hill and lea The scattered furniture. And soon The mechanics come, and by noon All is adjusted as before, — The Freshmen forced Prof. Warner ' s door. The Faculty meet, Prex Jim in the chair. Ye gods ! What words were spoken there ! ' An outrage ! " " Shameful ! " " How did they dare } ' Prof. Warner says, " I don ' t care ; The injury to me I can easily bear. " But the rest of the Faculty all declare, ' The authors of this deed we cannot spare; For forty dollars we ' ll call it square. And if this fine they will not pay By a certain hour of a certain day (Which day and hour we will soon say), Then, forsooth, shall their course be ended, — Or at least the ringleaders shall be suspended. " The chagrined Freshmen to the sentence listen. And salt, briny tears in many an eye glisten. In solemn conclave then they meet. To see if they cannot beat Down the Facultjs — in fact A generous compromise eftect. With this end an embassy they send, Hoping that Prex his ear will lend If half the sum demanded To him with penitence be handed. But in vain ! The authorities stand firm ; ' Tis vain for the Freshmen to squeal and squirm. The " horrid Juniors " they roundly cuss For getting them into such a fuss : And ever since they paid that fine. No class has been steadier than ' 89. INDEX. AilitaF BATTALION ORGANIZATION. COMMANDANT AND INSTRUCTOR. 1st Lieut. GEO. E. SAGE, 5th Art. U. S. A., Prof. Military Science and Tactics.

PKESJDENT OF THE AMERICAN POMOL OCh ■ i- ' Rrr iiiPMT np TMR Mh-M-RNr,r,AND HISTORIC OtJNEAL, IN MEMORIAM. MARSHALL P. WILDER. Resolved, That in the death of Marshall P. Wilder, this Board of Trustees has met with an irreparable loss, — the loss of a man who gave himself and his means readily, heartily and continuously to the great in- terests of elevating agricultural labor to be the peer of professional labor in the most pronounced departments of human industry; a man who sought to secure for the people interested in agriculture the highest intellectual training, and to so dignify the labor of the husbandman as to make it attractive to the largest minds by a development not only of its kinship to the highest qualities of man ' s nature, but by illustrating its immense scope in making necessary gleanings from the entire field of science as essential to a perfect, practical and economic working of the relation of the man to the soil, and that he has erected an imperishable monument in books, in shrubs and flowers, in trees, and in institutions for the benefit and elevation of his fellows, written and wrought by his own mind and hand. Resolved, That in Marshall P. Wilder we recognize the first Amer- ican advocate of the Agricultural College, and that by his public and private efforts the foundation was laid which culminated in the National act which, under the leadership of Hon. Justin S. Morrill, brought forth by national legislation the Agricultural College as it now exists in the several States of the Union. Resolved, That added to his great devotion to the cause of agricul- tural knowledge and intellectual and practical development, we recognize in him, under all circumstances, whether of triumph or temporary defeat, the earnest statesman, and the true-hearted, generous man who never failed to so recognize humanity, that side by side on the same broad platform of citizenship and manhood, the humblest laborer was elevated and made an equal as he listened in the field or the lecture-room to his words of counsel and judgment. Resolved, That we feel that no language of ours can express the great loss we feel in his demise, and that we tender our heartfelt sympa- thy to his bereaved family. Resoh ed, That a copy of these resolutions be sent to the family of the deceased, and inscinbed upon the records of the Trustees of the College. IN MEMORIAM. WILLIAM KNOWLTON. Resolved, That in the death of William Knowlton, the Trustees have lost a most efficient worker, and the College a friend who was always ready with his voice and means to contribute to its welfare and develop- ment. Resolved, That in the hearty and cordial support continuously given by our departed associate, we recognize a man who, hampered by disease, and suflFering for many years with excessive pain, triumphed over his great physical disabilities in a manly resignation of his public obligations to the sacrifice of his personal ease. Resolved, That we mourn his loss, and direct the Secretary to for- ward a copy of these resolutions to the family of the deceased, and insert the same in the records. INDEX. (S) fel ll - .% INDEX.

MESSENGER, Prop. )0 Bay State Fair, held in Boston, October 5th to 9th, was the largest of its class ever held in this country. The only butter that scored 100 points, and was marked by Prof. H. E. Alvord, Superintendent of the Dairy Department, " PERFECTION, " was made by the COOLEY PROCESS, by Alfred Rodman, Dedham, Mass., whose butter brings eighty cents per pound in the Boston market. The Creamerj ' or Factory Tub Butter scoring the most points, viz., 97, was made by the Shelburne Falls (Mass.) Co-Operative Creamery. The Creamery Butter scoring the second number of points, viz., 96, was made by the Windsor (Conn.) Co-Operative Creamei-y. Both of these factories are conducted on the Cooley Process of Cream Gathering. The Judges were Prof. L. B. Arnold, than whom there is no greater dairy authority in this country or Europe, and Mr. Edward Norton, the oldest and most experienced creamery manager in New England. We submit these facts to intelligent dairymen, and invite their closest scrutiny; also to the following facts, viz., that THE Cooley Creamers AND THEIR PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN AWARDED SEVEN GOLD MEDALS AND EIGHTEEN SILVER MEDALS. ©HEY are used by the leading dairy- men of this Country and Europe ; among them, T. G. Yeomans, Walworth, N. Y., Pres ' t of the Holstein-Friesian Breed- ers ' Association; T. B. Wales, Jr., Sec ' y of same Association, Iowa City, Iowa; Dr. F.W, Patterson, Pres ' t of the Dutch- Friesian Cattle Association before its consolidation with the Holstein Associa- tion; F. L.
