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 Physical 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.

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF

'83,

the words of Shakespeare, or Barnum's circns clown, we can't I N rememiJer which, "Here we are again," and, thongh many changes have takcn place in Ollr ranks, we arc still the jolly collcction 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 teetotalers,) 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 chemical operations we have undergone at the halHls of those cxpert manipulators, 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 beautiful effect of O\ll' ignition and sublimation in hringing out the brilliant and the sublime in this history. Ife 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 substances, nnle8s with tlw ex('eption of ,. concrete sulphuric acid." Perhaps this deplorable' lack of originality resulted from the care'
