The regular fee of $15 is paid on the first term bill under the item of "Laboratory supplies and damage of apparatus." Besides this, at the end of the year another fee is required to cover the cost of actual breakage made by each laboratory student. This fee varies with the care exercised by the student. On the last term bill it appears under the same item of expense as the first fee, and hence our correspondent's error. The last fee is for nothing but damages to apparatus and for any chemicals, besides the regular reagents used by the student. As a matter of fact, no charge at all was made for extra chemicals this year, the charges being for breakage alone. The fee of $25 for breakage in two courses, such as chemistry 3 and 4, is considered an average one. It seems a misfortune that there is no endowment from which the expense of running a laboratory could be paid, as such endowments could not fail to increase the election of laboratory courses.
