m and his people unless he did join with the Eastern Indians to cut off the English. I remember, said Rebecca, of hearing my father speak of this Squando's kindness to a young maid taken captive some years ago at Presumpscot. I saw her at Cocheco, said the sick man. Squando found her in a sad plight, and scarcely alive, took her to his wigwam, where his squaw did lovingly nurse and comfort her; and when she was able to travel, he brought her to Major Waldron's, asking no ransom for her. ot for a certainty.

In her company also came the worthy minister and doctor of medicine, Mr. Russ, formerly of Wells, but now settled at a plantation near Cocheco. He is to make some little tarry in this town, where at this present time many complain of sickness. Rebecca saith he is one of the excellent of the earth, and, like his blessed Lord and Master, delighteth in going about doing good, and comfor

Exulting in their success, they returned to Quebec. In the east, blood was first shed at Cocheco, where, 1689.

The views in Barber's Historical Collection almost always showed men and boys under tall hats, and even the first steam train in America is notable therefor. In our old-time picture the engine men wear the more sensible cap, while the fuel shown is wood. There were then no coal-burning engines. Next there was Engine Cocheco, built at Lowell, on the Branch a long time; weight, twelve tons. And later, and for many years, the engine Camilla, that weighed twenty tons and was built in Boston. We fancy that Mr. Crook, the conductor, with his hat, dickey and resplendent badge would create a sensation on the Medford Branch today. The Branch has not been without its fatalities, one in its early days— James B. Gregg, a prominent business man in Medford, was killed on the Branch at Medford Junction April 28,
