    Excerpt from Old Aggie

    But a short distance from the center of the town is Old Deerfield, and closer yet is that Bloody Brook where the blood of patriots once flowed as copiously as the spring freshets. Hadley, with its wealth of historic story, lies nestled away among the lower hills, and to the south is the rugged Notch and the Devil's Garden of disappearing stones.

    Two railroads center in the town of Amherst and easy access is had to the surrounding places of interest by means of an electric road. The country drives are enchanting in their sylvan scenery and the meadows teem with the richest of flowers.

    The College itself is situated about a mile from the town and is quickly reached by the electric cars that run to the north. The grounds are high and command a most beau tiful view across the green valley toward Mount Warner whose peach - clad sides glisten in the noon-day sun.

    During September, when college life begins, the little town takes on an unwonted business-like appearance and all is bustle and hurry. At the little yellow station of the Bos ton Maine railroad piles of trunks are being hurriedly transported to their several destinations, streams of young men are surging toward the electric cars, bent upon reach ing their dormitories as quickly as possible, and hacks are rushing about in indescribable confusion.

    The casual visitor is breathlessly pushed and thrust into a car in which hardly a seat is obtainable. The chatter of renewed acquaintance is interminable as the car pushes its way up the steep hill and so on into the town. A short stop is made before the principal business blocks and then the final journey is begun. As the car runs along north, the country becomes more open, and delightful vistas of the distant hills are obtained at each turn in the road.
