distinguished in the land. ... The editor has interspersed some trifles of her own, which she hopes may be leniently regarded. The volume is intended as an agreeable and instructive Miscellany, for presentation, free from all sectarian prejudices, and such an one as may contribute to the moral and intellectual progress of Young America. The title of the book is The Little Republic Original Articles by Various Hands, edited by Mrs. T. P. Smith, from the press of Wiley & Putnam, New York, and is dedicated, on a special page, to her father. The initial article is an ode of one hundred and twenty lines, entitled Justice, by John Quincy Adams, former President of the United States. Mrs. Sigourney, Ex-Governor Briggs, Bayard Taylor, Elihu Burritt, and eminent clergymen (including Dr. S. F. Smith, author of America), are among the twenty-one contributors. The trifles mentioned number thirteen, the first being fifteen pages of prose on Self-Culture, and the last in verse, as follows:

the singing of Burn, Fire, Burn, Mammy Moon, and Wo-he-lo, the latter portraying the keyword of the organization, Work, health, love. The President introduced the speaker of the evening, Rev. Anson Titus of Somerville, who spoke on Present-Day Patriotism, contrasting the fires on the hill-tops and lanterns in the church tower, with the wireless and cable of today, and closing with— These are great days in which to dedicate ourselves. The noble utterances of the President of the United States should grip and grasp every fibre of our being. A greater day is coming. On May 21st the Historical Society held its regular meeting, the last of the season of 1916-17. Its charter bears date of May 22, 1896, and the names of nine persons are therein written. Of these, seven are still living and six were present at this meeting, which, considering proximity of date, took the form of an anniversary occasion, as in fact the Society has rounded out its minority years and is now of
e is now the street that was named for this family. He and two sisters were baptized in the First Parish meeting-house, June 18, 1820. He lived here about eight years, then went to work in a printing office in Boston. He married at Billerica, Mass., Rebecca Bennett of that town, October 17, 1837. At that time he was living in West Cambridge, or was registered there. In 1830 he engaged in the West India trade, living in St. Thomas (one of the Danish islands recently acquired by the United States) until 1840, when he, with his wife, returned to their native land and resided in Boston. Mr. Warren was successful in business and retired therefrom early. Both he and his wife possessed ample means and traveled extensively. He was of a genial disposition and drew around him a large circle of friends. He was philanthropic and his interests were far-reaching. He was a director in many organizations, and after his death his wife continued the benefactions and was a generous patron

f Medford are doing in the present War crisis. As the events of today are making history, it is fitting that the Register record the work of Medford women. Four societies, distinctly patriotic in character, have worked along these lines many years. The oldest, S. C. Lawrence Relief Corps, was formed thirty-eight years ago, being the fifth in Massachusetts, auxiliary to the Grand Army of the Republic. While organized in the interest of those veterans and true allegiance to the United States, it is not strange that initiative steps in time of war should be taken by the local corps. During the Spanish American war, and in the later Mexican trouble, Grand Army hall was a busy center for work for Company E. In the present European war, preparedness work was again started in the same hall, several of the older members of the corps enjoying the distinction of having engaged in similar work in 1861, 1898 and 1916. In co-operation with the Special Aid Society for American Prep

is interesting to look over their catalogs, so different from the large illustrated ones of today, many of which have elegantly embossed covers and are works of art. The early ones were very simple in their makeup, there were no illustrations and some were merely a single sheet or broadside. Prince's Nurseries, Flushing, Long Island, called the Linnean Botanic Gardens, were then well known. His catalogs give a list of imported trees, and also one of trees obtained from people in the United States, and as we find the Bartlett listed in the latter, from Boston, and the Bon Chretien in the former, we may fairly assume Mr. Hall's trees were imported stock, quite likely obtained at Prince's. Probably the Bartlett pear found a home in Medford in the early part of the nineteenth century. Though we have a local horticultural society established in 1913 (January 22), interest in the culture of fruits and flowers in this city antedates it by many years. Horticulture had a cordial rece
