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. ■

XDi:x. ' 88 ANOTHER interesting period of our college life has become a feature of the past, and a new one has been ushered in. 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.
