A student newpaper published June 1884 by the students of Bangor High School. Here is a sample paragraph (which is quite elegant and prophetic):
Every day some new scientific truth takes the place of a falsehood that has been taught for centuries. Scientific study tends not only to correct and ennoble the intellectual conceptions of man, it serves also to ameliorate his physical condition. The investigation of principles is immediately followed by practical inventions. Machinery is rapidly supplanting human and animal labor. The steam engine has become the drudge of civilization and changed the industries of nations. It has not only enlarged the field of human activity, but it has increased the capabilities of human life and become a most efficient incentive to human industry.
