gs. In 1880 there came into Medford a man who walked through the various streets making measurements, taking notes and securing views, and then ascended the hills in various sections. The result of his work is the bird's eye view of Medford, thirteen by twenty-five inches in size, which he delivered to subscribers for one dollar per copy. How successful as a business enterprise this effort was we know not; or how large an edition or sale it had we cannot say. Of that of West Medford (in 1892) we have only seen our own copy, and of Medford only one, that in the Historical rooms, until recently, when a package of them came to the Society. Being bird's eye views, the artist's points of vision must have been in the air over Oak Grove cemetery and Winter hill. Of its artistic merits we can say little, but for its comprehensive outlook they convey a fair idea of the extent and lay-out of the two sections of the city. Doubtless they could be improved upon, for we notice that these

re Hillside avenue now is, but the hill has been more excavated since Mr. Stetson's boyhood observation. Aunt Polly's candy shop was probably well known to him and other Medford boys. He locates the tan yard as across the street from the old sexton's house, and in his notes inquired about the gravel of the varge-way. Were we to venture an answer, we would say both kinds, red opposite this point and white farther south, as a natural sequence. When the Metropolitan sewer was constructed (in 1892) at this point in High street, much red gravel was dug out from its trench, some of which the writer made use of for walks, and found it as good as Mr. Stetson said. The great excavation back of the Josselin house at F was made greater to accommodate the High school house extension, as a look at the grounds will witness. note.— High School No. 2 is the front of the two similar sections of the Centre school building, not including the entrance wing, and originally standing with gable end

published by S. A. Wetmore, who fell on evil times (financially) in his effort, and its publication abruptly ceased on July 6, 1887. It certainly was a fine, newsy effort and its untimely end to be regretted. Another, the Medford City News, in 1892, under the editorial care of C. H. Hillman, had a little over a year's circulation. This had its office on Salem street, and was directly succeeded by, and near by, the Medford Times, but not for long. The Medford Light was issued by George S.r its objective was attained, during Mr. Tilton's pastorate. At the time of the mortgage burning, the Beacon had a special number printed in blue ink—but there was nothing else blue, but, rather, great rejoicing. In Trinity's jubilee year, 1891-2, appeared Trinity Jubilee Chimes, Rev. M. L. Bullock, editor, sixteen pages, eight and one-half by twelve inches, two columns each. Published eight months of the year, it is now in its third volume. Its cover page is of attractive design, a centr
