Our twentieth volume. The October issue of the Register completed two decades of service in the preservation of Medford annals. It has put into permanent form for reference many of the interesting papers that have been prepared for and read before the Historical Society,which assumes its publication and gathered up very many local incidents and features of interest that otherwise would have been lost. All these can be safely drawn upon by such as shall sometime write an adequate history of our city. Exclusive of title and index, its pages now number 2140 of superior quality. It has always been a labor of love by its contributors and editors, and no inconsiderable draft on the Society's treasury. Other historical works our town and city have three times assisted financially, but the Register has been maintained by its own and the Historical Society's efforts. The text-book used in our public schools has drawn largely upon it for facts, and was carefully examined by the Re

purchased the site on High street on which they erected a house of worship. It was burned in 1860 and a second building was erected on the same spot. After serving both Protestants and Roman Catholics, the steeple was removed, the interior and exterior were altered, and today it is the hardware store of Page & Curtin, for whom the changes were made. William R. Gray, oldest child of William, must have spent some time here with his family, as our records note the baptism of a daughter, October io, 1819, and a son, August 5, 1821. A relative of the writer (whose life, beginning in the last decade of the eighteenth century, extended over more than three-quarters of the nineteenth), a resident of Boston, knew it well, and used to tell of seeing it grow from a town into a city, of cows being pastured south of Summer street, and of Billy Gray's mansion on that street. Samuel Gray of Salem married first Anna Orne of Marblehead, by whom he had six children. He married a second ti

prevailing feeling that a Union church would be impracticable, and that an active church of some denomination should take up the work, this action was a logical and natural sequence. Mr. Huntington was about to graduate from Boston University, of which he was in after years the honored president. He served as his predecessors had done, by preaching twice each Sabbath, but as the so-called Christian Union was not a church, did not enter into pastoral work. Though the Methodists began in October to hold class meetings, organized by the pastor of the First M. E. Church of Medford, Mr. Huntington was in no way connected with them. Thus the year continued until the time of an annual meeting, which was held in the evening of April 1, 1872, twenty-two persons being present. By this time the class meeting of the Methodists had resulted in the organization of a church of that order, and steps had been taken in the same direction by the Congregational people, both expecting to begin t
The Register of Age. The present issue completes the Register's twenty-first volume. Delayed in attaining its majority by war conditions, and bearing date of October, its earlier pages went to press on the eve of Victory Day. It will fall within its scope, in future issues, to make note of Medford's participation in the great struggle, not only over seas, but of the home workers, and of the newer work which citizens of Medford may do. It has been said the nineteenth century made the world a neighborhood; the twentieth must make it a brotherhood. The neighborhood of over there was never so apparent as on the morning of November 11th. Thanksgiving Day takes on new meaning, and the brotherhood of the future will be realized yet more as we adapt ourselves to the new conditions. Since the Register's first issue Medford has well nigh trebled in population. Even a cursory glance at the names in the so-called Ward Book will show an almost cosmopolitan make-up. Much is said of
