The constant demands of those students studying chemistry here for instruction in the science of Metallurgy have led the department to provide such a course. Furnaces for the essay of the simplest ores of gold and silver will be set up in the basement of the new addition to the museum, and will be ready for use at the beginning of next year.

The Harvard chemical laboratories are intended only for instruction in theoretical chemistry; it has never before been attempted here to teach the industrial department of the science, so that this new course may be said to open a new field. The popular desire will doubtless force the college continually to enlarge upon this department.
