UMYERSITY OF ROCHESTER.
Its Organization and "History.
The University of Rochester opened
Its doors for students in the autumn of
ISoO, and gave instruction in that year
to seventy-one young men by means of
a faculty of eight professors and in
structors. Its first class of ten men
was' graduated In July, 1851. The idea
of establishing a college in Rochester
College
originated as early as 1847, when many
friends of Christian education among
the Bjaptlsts of the state of New Yoik
expressed a conviction that such an in
Htltutlon should bo established by that
Pn this centre ot a large and giow
apulation. The project was em
ally endorsed In tho same year
Izens of Rochester, and financial
;mce was pledged to it by leading
Irrespective of creed. It was not
mtll January m, ISM, however, that
fjilans were sufllclently perfect to secuto
from the Regents of the State of New
York a provisional charier. On compli
ance 'with certain conditions named In
this provisional charter, the Regents, on
Feb, 14, lSfil, gi anted the permanent
t'(iarter under which tho college s at
present organized. This charier Is in
all respects similar to the old charter or

York, and Invests the corporation "with

THE MEAT PROBLEM.
It Can Be Solved by Not Eating Toe
Much.
Horn the Wa.liinKton I'it.
When the price of meat soars to such
an altitude tat It is practically be
yond the reach of the masses, unless
they dispense entirely with thrift and
go in for reckless extravagance, is
there no remedy? Whether tho phe
nomenal soaring be the result of nat
ural or artificial causes, or a comblna-
tlon of the two, is there not a way
by which the price can be reduced and
held permanently at a lower level? The
easiest, simplest, and surest way to
cheapen the market prloe of any com
modity Is to diminish consumption' of
It. Cannot this method bo adopted
with meat',' Can it not bo adopted
without Injury to health or any deter
ioration of physique'.' i
There are many authorities who an
swer that question with a .hearty, re
sonant ','yes,"' Wodo not rofer especi
ally to the vegetarians, although their
testimony, resulting from experience,
Is well worthy of consideration. Out
side of their ranks,' among 'physicians
and laymen In eve'ry occupation and
ot no occupation, there Is a widely
prevalent belief that Ameiicans eat too
much men,.too mucli-for bolh physlqal
und'piental welfare,' and that! there
foie, u material reduction of bodily
health and Intellectual achievement.
Cut down the dally consumption of
meat twenty to thirty per cent., and
hold it there, mid the prices' would
come flown und stay down, '
Haljf o(f tho people on this? globe sub
sist almost exclusively .ion rlco and
Jlsh, , HJair of the other half eat meat
not 'ipore than twice a week. Tho oe.
reals, Vegetables and fruits furnish an
endless variety of food. As to fish, lit
would be easily practicable to ndel
nltely increase tho supply. Wherever
there, is pure waterman cun be propa
gated. There aro hundreds of thous
ands of farms In tho United States on
which fish could bo propas;u(ed nt

production, notwithstanding the wipe
and well-directed labors ot national
and stato commissions, have scarcely;
been entered upon,
