obtained by our local societies. The erection of substantial houses would not only beau- tify our surroundings, and stand as a tribute to the society, but it would also bring the members together with a tendency to a closer union and a deeper brotherly interest. With these few recommendations we cannot urge too strongly the advantage and necessity of immediate action upon this important subject. One of the most pressing necessities of the M. A. C. is space for the Natural His- tory collections. These collections have been greatly augmented during the past year, and have long since outgrown the room allotted them. A stranger, entering the Museum, where the bulk of them is at present, is more apt to think he is in a storehouse than in a place designed for exhibition. Not that the various specimens are improperly arranged and classified, but that lack of room has rendered it necessary to place the objects close to each other, and to make use of the back part of the upper shelves, and in some cases of the tops of the cabinets. A large number of the name cards and many of the objects are thus concealed from view. Nearly all the floor-space of the room is occupied by large models and mounted speci- mens of animals, too bulky to be placed elsewhere, and what tables there are in the room are occupied by the surplus from the cabinets. If the term storehotise is appropriate for the Museum, rubbish-room is a fitting title for the attic over the Military Recitation Room. Here, spread about the floor, are the remnants of once valuable mineral and insect collections. Students, observing the apparent indifference of the college authorities toward these, have not scrupled to despoil them whenever an opportunity offered itself. By a trifling outlay of time and money, the missing specimens might be duplicated, and the collections put in condition for use. But it would be absurd to restore these collections if a suitable place is not accorded them. As there is no building belonging to the college where they can be accommo- dated, and as it would be a decided improvement to have them added to those from the Museum and the smaller ones now in the upper story of the Old Chapel and in the entry of the Drill Hall, the only plausible plan that suggests itself is to have a new build- ing designed for the purpose. This would make all the collections easy of access by the students, and would undoubtedly add a decided impetus to the study of Natural History in college. Then let every interested student and alumnus talk up this plan, and the proba- bilities are that we shall soon see a Museum built that will be worthy of the name. 130
