From Medford, 7, 8 1/4 A. M., 1 1/2, 3 1/2 & 5 P. M. From Boston, 7 1/2 A. M., 2 M., 2 1/4, 4 1/2 & 6 P. M. Saturday evening. From Medford, 6 1/2 P. M. From Boston, 9 P. M. Fare 12 cts.There was a time when it seemed probable that the Medford station would become a way-station by the building of an extension to Stoneham (see Register, Vol. XVI p. 90), but the project failed to materialize and a terminal it has remained. It has been remodelled at times, the entrance moved nearer the square, a somewhat pretentious waiting-room made in it, now somewhat dimmed in its lustre but more than equal to the demand at the present writing. The Medford Branch carries people safely, brings freight into the city, carries away a little, but its palmy days have passed, unless, indeed, by its electrification or rearrangement in some way it may better serve the people of Medford in their daily travel.
