Another Retrospect.

With this issue the register closes its twenty-third volume. It has always been its purpose to be a register distinctively of Medford people and associations and of Medford affairs, venturing outside only as connected with them. At an early date the fear was expressed by some that subject matter would soon be exhausted. That fear proved groundless but others have arisen.

While harboring none of superstition, at the closing of the twelfth volume we expressed the wish that the thirteenth might be in no wise unlucky, and asked for larger co-operation and increased circulation. Eleven years have passed, our Society has had two ‘removes,’ but is not facing a third, being now settled in its own home. We have ‘been through the war’ experience of increased cost and high prices, and close Vol. XXIII with a deficit. We feared the directors would say ‘ Skiddoo,’ which is, being interpreted, ‘Cease publication.’ Yet they direct us to continue, trusting to the appreciation of our members, the Medford reading public, and the good will of all for larger future support. We trust that the culminating numbers (either thirteen or twenty-three) may not prove disastrous, and that the register's future issues may be largely increased.
