    long be rememhered. Its ill success in the heginning was due to the twin members of the class, who h,td cyidently been out the night before and saw double. Had it not hel'lI for the resolute ac-tion of a few determined men, who made up thl'ir ruilHls to, alld actual-ly did find the error, that railroad eurve I?Jight still he out in the cold desolate wastes of iloboken, pining to be made tangent within nineteen feet of its tangent point. Bridget:! aJld Roofs OC(;U]1y us at present in this department, and the l'rOIJhc(;.\' of Prof. Wood, made last year, that we should again hear of IIIOlllellt8. has. wonderful to rehtte, come true; in fact, too true for SOUle of us. Gmpical Statics will occupy ns nex:~ term, and that will cnd a yaried and, for the most part, arduous course of mathematics and mechanics.

    It is with pleasnre that we chronicle our sojolUn ill the Physi-cal Laboratory under the gnidance of the gClJial professor in charge. The reduced numbers of the class enables the professor to devote increa8e(1 time to each imliyidnal. which cannot but he conducive of the hest rl'snlts, as our rapid progn'HIS il1l1Htmtes. In speaking of rapid progress, we mu>:>t roco]"(l the progress made in microscopy sinee om adrent in tIlt' labomtory. In !;ubjccting a 8pecimen of Hohokell w,Lter to microBe-opie analysis. a monster was , discovered, for which even that great authority on water analysis, Prof. Leeds, had no name. After minntl' inspection, however, it pl"lwed to he nothing lJllt n long-tailed decapod erusta('ean of tIll' genus Crangon ; in other words-a fresh water slwimp.

    The departmellt of drawing has cllanged Imt little. We still draw line8 and cms(' them as of yore. Barring one incident, little of note has occurred. 'l'hi8 incident, hOlVever, i!; worth.y of mention. It seems tJlat aIle JUember of the class has ,Lctually produced some-thing original in the line uf slicle-ya]yl's. which is something un-precedentcd in the annals of clrawing at the Institute. ilis name will certainly be handed down to posterity.

    This being the last chance '8~ has of heing heard in this con-nection, it might not he out of place to giw the cnstomary statis-tics concerning the class; '82 was never lloted for its numbers, uut modesty forhids us to ~a'y that it m,tde up in talent what it lacked ill numbers. In tlw heginning we mustered twenty-seven mC'n ; time, howeyer, has (ll'cimated on1' ranks, until at present we call couut upon but twdYC' men to nphold the hOllor of '82.

    HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF '83,

    I N the words of Shakespeare, or Barnum's circns clown, we can't rememiJer which, "Here we are again," and, thongh many changes have takcn place in Ollr ranks, we arc still the jolly collcc-tion of jolly fellows that is so much envied by thc other classes.

    We haye again sacHy to record the loss of old classmates, of whom four luwe loft us during the past ycar. The loss, however, has been compensated by the addition of five new men, who, we are glad to say, lULye shown much interest in the doings of the class. Let us hope that the next year's Historian may have no losses to record.

    Just as the water of the nohle, filthy Passaic, of which we poor mortals }tre forced to drink, (~o. thank you, no beer; we are all tee-totalers,) is made more pleasant to the scnses by thorough filtmtion, so has '83 been improved by the removal of dross and sedinwnt by passage through the eight cxamination filterR we have encountered in our course. Awl it wonld seem that during the various chemi-cal operations we have undergone at the halHls of those cxpert ma-nipulators, the Faculty, that some Illucilaginous substance had been added. for it is indeed firmly that we stick together. Many other of tll(' operations have helped us a.long, as witness the beauti-ful effect of O\ll' ignition and sublimation in hringing out the bril-liant and the sublime in this history.

    If e have done great things rluriug the past year, bn t our class modesty, for which we are noted. prevents us from mentioning more than a few of them.

    In .the first place. one of onl' number got up a ,joke, flo real .joke. rrhink of it! We can't remember jnst what it was now, bnt it was ' something in relation to the ~sthetic ledllrer and a demented strc'ct ear.

    In the" Lab." we mnst confess onr achievements have been far lJehinc1 those of formC'!' clas~es. as we haye discovered no new sub-stances, nnle8s with tlw ex('eption of ,. concrete sulphuric acid." Perhaps this deplorable' lack
