The fire in the new building of the Harvard Medical School Friday night was peculiarly unfortunate. The programme for the dedication of the new building had already been arranged for the 31st of May, Dr. Holmes having been chosen to make the dedicatory address. The building committee were just about to issue the invitations to the ceremonies of dedication when the fire came to interfere with the programme. As it is, the dedicatory services have been indefinitely postponed, although it is to be hoped that the building can be made ready for occupancy by the first of October, when the regular term opens. The damage to the building by fire is thought to be even more serious than has been reported, and it is doubtful if the interior can be restored for less than $15,000. The fire-proof quality of the structure is the only thing that saved it from complete destruction, and a careful inspection renders it little short of marvellous that the entire building did not succumb to the flames.
