K. FIELD. Pre*., C^S. STOLTENBHHU, Sec The property originally given tin tlie University by Senator und Mrs. Stanford consisted of tl>« |'a|„ Alto ranch, situated |iartly in Santa Clara and partly in San Mateo county, containing *MM> aeres: the Gridtey farm, tn Butte county. cJohtajnlng 22.000 acres: and the Vina farm, in Butte and Tehama counties, containing .V,,(Wu acres. This aggregates soihething over 85,000 acres. From time to time additions have lieen made to this endowment. The University buildings have lieen ereuled; Mrs. .Stanford's ii-sidemtes at San Francisco and. I'alo Alto hate been conveyed to IheH-ui versify: and largest of all was tlie bequest of »i."intMI0n in mortgage bonds which Scimior Stanford made to the University by his will. The net annual income from this pro|ierty at present is about #l(W,000. This lacks a large amount of being sufficient to pay the running expenses of the University with the pi'i'si'in Dumber of sludeuts und consequent demands. The tie licit. is mude up t h rough personal self-sacrifice. Kveryoue will appreciate the itti |sirtallcc of | he taxation a hen it is said that nearly one-fourth of the tutal annual receipt* from i*uiv«,i-sit..\ property giM^ for laxes each year. It is to relieve the University of this destructive dratti on its it-sources that the alumni feel' something should he done. Methodist Church Hems.

This is a corporate body elected from the high officials of stale and university to care for all the varied interests "onneoted Willi tlie TTiauies-i'ivw.. jjo. thoitiiighly and smi-essfully is this tit sic that, although the Thames drains uver TiOOt) ""square miles of territory inhabited by over-tl5,tiOO.OliO iwople; its waters are pure enough to furnish the water supply of London. In addition to curing for the walei's of the Thames the commission has mi laid out and cared for the banks of the stream that they have given tlie community a beautiful park 175 miles long, so per- fectly kept that a woman may walk fiver any part, of 'it without being molested or offended by anything disagreeable to the eye or ear. This beautiful and artistic pleasure ground is one of the greatest ed ucators iu Kngland. Tlie- value of suehra preserve is beginning to be recognized in the United Slates and the people of Boston are trying to beautify the Charles rl vor along tbe lines taken by the Thames^Conservancy. I'alo Alto has within its hounds an opportunity for a most beautiful park of tills nature. If Fruncisquito creek could In: oared for from Its mouth to tlie Sears villi- dam a lively drive and bicycle path could be made on both sides, crossing over the embank lie nt and down to the University, striking tho creek again at that point. A series of light retaining dams could he put in so a* to give a stretch of six miles waterway for boating, the engineering difficulties would lie slight. the results most charming'.—'^~ While I\ilii Alio is burdened now with its struggle for the neiiessities of life in tlie way of water and sewers, yet it may keep this object in view and iirevent the land along the creek from hoiug taken up for building lots or in any way rendered more difficult to obtain ill the future day when the town or some pa t riotie citizen may lie free to give us this most desirable anil profitable village improvement. The lecture was Illustrated by many beautiful photographs of country along the course of tile Thames river. ' "CuTWTrroai'.' Victoria Viera, a youngjPortuguese, who hud worked for J. A.
