WITH this number we enclose a programme of the Club races which take place to-morrow at eleven o'clock. The programme is printed on a card, rather than in the columns of the paper, for the greater convenience of our subscribers.

SHINGLES of the Harvard Cricket Club are now ready at 34 Mathews. The officers of the Club are as follows: President, H. E. Teschmacher, '78; Vice-President, C. H. Tupper, L. S.; Secretary and Treasurer, C. Harrington, '78; Captain, E. P. Bruce, '77; Directors, P. C. Chandler, L. S., E. Stackpole, '78, and C. L. Perkins, '79.

THE signal for the boats in the first race to take their positions will be given to-morrow at fifteen minutes before eleven. Any boat not on the line at eleven o'clock will not be allowed to start. Every succeeding race will be called five minutes after the completion of the race next preceding.

GENTLEMEN who wish to accompany the Nine on their trip to Brown University can make arrangements for tickets at reduced rates with the Treasurer, Mr. William Mason, '76.

AN article by Gen. Lister on "Military Drill" has been sent to us too late for insertion in this issue. As it contains statements of much interest to students in general, we have sent it to the Advocate for publication next week.

PROFESSOR (kindly). - What is the matter, Mr. Gray? You look unwell.

Matthews Six, - Stroke, 150 lbs.; 2, 180; 3, 185; 4, 160; 5, 170; bow, 159. Port side, 505; starboard, 499. Cox., 114. Total weight, 1, 118 lbs.
