A fire started in the amphitheatre or lecture room of the new Harvard Medical School building on Friday last. It was confined to that locality, although considerable damage was done elsewhere by the heat and smoke. The woodwork of the lecture room, including the amphitheatre seats, was totally destroyed, and the ceilings and fresco work ruined. The origin of the fire is a mystery, and was probably caused by spontaneous combustion among painters' rages. The building was damaged nearly $2000. The loss will fall on Woodbury & Leighton, the contractors, who are fully insured.

The executive committee of the Tennis Association request members to hire boys as "shackers" only at the entrance to Holmes field and at the entrance to Jarvis field. It is believed that if all tennis players will do this much of the annoyance now caused by the host of small boys will be done away with. Tennis players will then know where "shackers" can be had, and will be able to make some choice, while the boys, if they are hired at these places alone, will cease to annoy players on all parts of the fields. If the tennis players in college comply with this request, and if it is found that matters are thus improved, other steps may then be taken in order to keep away the more objectionable youths. Members of the association are also requested to pay "shackers" at the rate of five cents for an hour or under and ten cents for a longer time.
