of the most prominent educators con

a ' century ago Bates ' Academy
was one of the most popular pre

was so proficient in this work that his
services were sought by the Regents of
the University as soon as this institu
tion came under State control.
There are quite a number of promi
nent men to-day who received their
training in Bates Academy and who
are Justly proud -of their alma, mater.
The news of* their former master's
death will touch them greatly. His San

on Hyde street, but was removed later
to 2310 Clay street.
The funeral will take place to-day at
