Col. Royall's and Capt. Nicholson's farms. This was never obtained. Dec. 7, 1795: Voted to measure the route from Jonathan Brooks's Corner to Lexington. This road was not accepted. Voted to erect sign-posts through the town. Nov. 18, 1801: Voted to choose a Committee to oppose the opening of a new road to Charlestown. May 10, 1802: A Committee was chosen to lay out a road between Medford, Stoneham, and Reading, through the woods; also to see if a road from the meeting-house to Joseph Wyman's was feasible. Purchase Street was opened many years after, according to this suggestion. Sept. 13, 1802: The Court of Sessions direct, that the road from Jonathan Brooks's Corner to West Cambridge shall be widened, Medford and Charlestown paying for the lands taken. Labor of a man on the highways, one dollar for eight hours; and two dollars for a team. In 1819, one dollar and twenty-five cents, and two dollars and fifty cents.

rom any book he pleased. Such teaching would not secure long patronage; and Mr. Woodbridge relinquished school-keeping for baking, and failed also in that business, in Charlestown. He then moved to Connecticut; and we lose sight of him. Mr. Joseph Wyman, of Woburn, who had kept the public school in Medford, built the house now owned by the Bigelow family, and there opened a private school for boys and girls. He taught only a few years. Mrs. Susanna Rawson succeeded Mr. Wyman, and openedMr. Wyman, and opened a boarding-school for girls in the house which had been occupied by him. She was a lady of uncommon attainments, apt in teaching, and able to govern. Her school deserved its high popularity; and that its numbers were great, may be inferred from the following vote of the town:-- May 12, 1800: Voted that the second and third seats in the women's side-gallery in the meeting-house be allowed Mrs. Rawson, for herself and scholars; and that she be allowed to put doors and locks on them.

James Kidder. The inhabitants occupied one hundred and thirty-six houses, which were valued at $74,032.80; making an average value of $544 each. The town valuation of all other property was $160,116.60. Taxes were assessed on 4,603 acres of land. We may close these tables of taxes by inserting the State valuation tables for seven decades, from 1790 to 1850 inclusive. Medford stands thus: In 1790, its State valuation was $9,441.68; in 1800, $15,036,08; in 1810, $26
ily increased till it reached its maximum, of forty-one, in 1804. 1805.--Health Committee chosen for the first time. Does this show the healthiness of the town? 1805.--The Medford omnibus, named Governor Brooks, was said to be the first vehicle of the kind built in New England. It was made by Mr. Osgood Bradley, of Worcester, Mass.; and first appeared on its route, Oct. 18, 1836. It cost $650. Eighteen persons could be seated inside, and six outside. It was owned and driven by Mr. Joseph Wyman, of Medford, who began his new business, Feb. 16, 1805; and, for thirty years, drove daily a public coach between Medford and Boston, without overturning it. The fare was thirty-seven and a half cents for many years; but competition reduced it to twenty-five. 1808.--In the public school, an assistant teacher is provided for the first time. 1808.--Digging for hidden money, near the Rock landing, was three times repeated by (as is said) Mr. James Francis, of Medford, and Mr. James
