Old Glory at the top.

During the past month a flag-staff has been placed at the top of ‘Medford's Sky-scraper,’ the wireless tower at Tufts College (Register, Vol. XVIII, p.75). We have not its measure, nor yet that of the Stars and Stripes that fly from its peak (probably twelve feet or more), but we venture to say that as the tower is a little way up the hill-slope and is three hundred feet high, the added length of the staff flies the colors at the highest altitude in the vicinity of Boston, for as yet the five-hundred-foot tower of the Custom House does not thus display either the national colors or the customs flag.
