    CAMBRIDGE.—The professorship of agriculture in the University was established in the year 1899, in consequence of a generous offer by the Drapers Company to contribute 800l. a year for ten years to the agricultural education fund, for the stipend of the professor. The Drapers Company has now signified its intention to continue its contribution of 800l. a year for a further period of ten years, dating from the year 1909, Of the understanding that the Department of Agriculture, and the stipend of the professor, shall be maintained as at present. The company has further expressed approval of a suggestion, made by the board of agricultural studies, that the source of the endowment should be indicated, as in the case of some other foundations, by attaching to the chair the title of the “Drapers' Professorship of Agriculture.”
