ing plant for $20.00! But how about $200 for Parson Osgood's supply of wood for the same year, deducted from the $500 salary? Even with the high price of coal in 1919, the average householder today would deem it a hardship to pay $200 for a year's fuel, to say nothing of spending two-fifths of his income for warmth. Seth Mayoabstract covering features of the town administration of 1819. We may read between the lines and contrast the Medford of that day and its conditions with those of 1919. One thing will stand out noticeably, the disproportionate burden that Medford was bearing then in the support of its poor—and we may well ask the cause. That illtions. But the item of the relief of the poor had fallen to about one-seventh, and who can say but that the service and relief was as efficient? There is much of interest in the study of the old statistics. It is not our intention here to compare them with those of 1919, but it is pertinent to inquire whither we are tendin
ld Bay State to which the bridal party came with cows and sheep in Medford or Danvers? The Louisburg expedition was in the spring of 1745. Was the veteran of Louisburg from Danvers or Medford? We are inclined to answer to both queries, Danvers: as he owned property there and was one of the tellers at Danvers March meeting in 1752. He was taxed in Charlestown 1756-65, and taught school without the neck, where he was styled gentleman and from Danvers. He was in 1763 administrator of the estate of his son John, late of Charlestown, and was then called gentleman and of Charlestown. It has been suggested that he joined in Medford, the Danvers minute men who marched from Danvers to Cambridge (i.e. Menotomy or West Cambridge) 16 miles in 4 hours, taking stand in a walled enclosure with a breastwork of shingles, waiting the retreating British. Genl. Israel Putnam was in the same generation, their fathers being cousins. This latter gathered from Pulnam Ancestry (1919).

erica, and the raising of funds for our needs could make no headway amid the drives for Liberty Loans, Red Cross, Y. M. C. A., and our local charities. Our incurred bills were made no larger. Some were reduced a little, as occasional contributions were made, while our patient creditors waited our action. In December, 1918, an effort was made to secure $2,000 to complete the building and pay all outstanding bills. About one-half of the amount was pledged and partially paid in by April i, 1919, when matters became complicated by a possible suit at law by one of the smaller creditors. Up to that (and present) time the entire cost (to the society) of the building and land is $4,975 Approximately., and the entire remaining indebtedness to ten creditors, $1,682.12. To nine of these was owing the aggregate sum of $604.51, in sums of from $10 to $158; all balances of accounts. As part of the money had been received without conditions, it was the wish of the other creditor (whose acc
The Society's meetings. Season of 1918-1919. October 2, 1918, at the opening meeting of the season, some twenty-five persons were present to hear Representative Fred Burrell, who spoke upon the Constitutional Convention and the Amendments. November 21 was the largest attended gathering, when Mrs. A. T. Hatch, of West Medford, told of her work and experience overseas in France. December 10th meeting was styled a Council Fire, and was a retrospect by members of the incidents and doings of the Society during the past two years, and some plans were formulated to be worked out. Light refreshments were served. January 21, 1919. The annual meeting was given to the reports and election of officers. The former board was reelected, with this exception: the curator and librarian, Miss Lincoln, was transferred to the vicepresidency, and Vice-President Remele was chosen to take charge of our library and collection. February 17. Rev. G. Bennett Van Buskirk of Trinity Church gave
