bell on the rear end of the roof-ridge. Then another of two stories, with door and window, and driveway through to the dock in the rear. This the writer recognizes as the coal office where he bought his first winter's coal of Luther Angier in 1870, with more pleasure, less money, and better results than present conditions give. A. L. Rawson, del. was the delineator of this view from Wilkinson's daguerreotype, and F. T. Stuart, sc. sculped (i.e. engraved) the steel plate from which it we the story of the famous school written (and read at a Society meeting) by one who attended and graduated from it. Two views of the little mill on the Arlington side of the river, whose wooden dam old W——d was the cause of an incipient riot in 1870, the Register has presented. One is from a pencil drawing by Francis Wait, the other shows it at an earlier time. It was the Tinkham Brothers' Tide-mill of Trowbridge's famous story, the Wood's mill of actual fact.

dd Fellows hall. The legend on that building was, in gilded iron letters, Mystic Hall Seminary, the final word removed in 1870. The S is now in the Historical rooms and the M in our editorial sanctum. The chimney seen in view was a wooden one, onlvo. The farthest house was really as far from High street as is the present 56. The fence around Mystic Hall was there in 1870, but in line with the oval was a willow four feet in diameter, which could not have grown in the fifteen years since 1855. Again, we found in 1870 an unsightly outbuilding, screened somewhat (where the oval is shown), on the walls of which various classic quotations were written. We will quote one:— Honest man, in the ear of reason, is a grander title than peer oflm or prince of the blood. There was also a greenhouse beyond the mansion which, with the former-named, was removed in 1870. But that the dormers are too high in the roof and the basement windows also too far from the ground, the artist did well
Medford's Bulky red Nose. IN Vol. XVIII, No. 1, Medford Historical Register, was High Street in 1870. That it awakened interest is shown by the following letter, which was directly acted upon. (See Mr. Hooper's article on Pine and Pasture Hills, and Introductory Note in the Register's next issue. New Bedford, March 13, 1915. Mr. Editor:— dear Sir:—I have at different times been interested to know the original topography of the tract between the Library lot and the square, and made unfinished notes, but I never perfected anything. Now comes your very useful record of High street in 1870, and it reawakens my interest. I have no facilities for the inquiry—don't know the place, names, now-and it is too late, so I am going to drop it and dump all the papers upon you to throw away or use as you like. This is not a contribution article for the columns of the Register, but sent in the hope of stirring up the curiosity of Mr. Hooper, yourself, or some other intelligent pe<

ent was made of the publication of the Malden Messenger, which would be sent to the Journal subscribers. Whether any dissatisfied one called at his office for reimbursement, as he suggested, we cannot say. Probably ere now, both editor and publisher have passed on, but they certainly were worthy of better success. As thirteen weeks covered the brief life of the first Medford Journal, so it was thirteen years ere any other attempt was made for a weekly paper in Medford. Just at the end of 1870, James Madison Usher of West Medford began the publication of a four-paged weekly. It was a great eight-column blanket sheet, twenty-one by twenty-eight inches in size, bearing title Medford Journal in big ornamental letters, the two words a little separated by a wood-cut of a wood-burner locomotive and ancient railway cars. It bore date of December 24, 1870. We have never found that this paper had any editorial or publishing quarters in Old Medford. Its editor and publisher resided in
