ended until the summer of 1863, when General Pope took command of that department, picketed the line of settlements in the far Northwest with 2,000 soldiers, and took vigorous measures to disperse the hostile bands. Generals Sibley and Sully moved against them in June, 1863, fought the Indians at different places, and finally scattered them among the wilds of the eastern slopes of the spurs of the Rocky Mountains. An outbreak by the Pillager band of Chippewas at Leech Lake occurred in October, 1898, because of continued impositions by the whites; but it was quickly suppressed by a detachment of the regular army.

es by American playwrights like Belasco, De Mille, Marguerite Merrington (Captain Letterblair, 16 August, 1892), Fitch (An American Duchess, 20 November, 1893; The Moth and the flame, 1 April, 1898; The girl and the Judge, 4 December, 1900), Mrs. Frances Hodgson Burnett (The First Gentleman of Europe, 25 January, 1897), Madeleine Lucette Ryley (The Mysterious Mr. Bugle, 19 April, 1897; Richard savage, 4 February, 1901), Grace Livingston Furness and Abby Sage Richardson (Colonial Girl, 31 October, 1898; Americans at home, 13 March, 1899). It is also true that Charles Frohman, opening his Empire Theatre with the Belasco-Fyles military drama, The girl I left behind Me (25 January, 1893), figured largely in the development of Gillette, Fitch, and Thomas. Nevertheless, it was not by their faith in the American playwright that the powerful position of the theatrical managers was won, but rather through the astute manner in which they watched the foreign market. They were sure of foreign s
ch the old debt was raised, and the parish was able to realize that freedom was to be a reality, and no longer a dream, of the future. On Sunday morning, March 19, Mr. Powers called for individual pledges to pay the debt. His plan was for quarter-yearly payments, to continue over a term of three years. About $8,500 was pledged that morning, sufficient to take care of the principal and interest up to the end of the three-year period. At the close of his sermon on the first Sunday in October, 1898, Mr. Powers read his resignation. It came without warning. The people could hardly believe their ears. Every effort was made to have him re-consider, but to no avail. Even when the unanimous votes of every organization connected with the society, testified to by the signatures of their respective officers, engrossed on parchment, were sent to Mr. Powers, he declined to change his previous determination, so, reluctantly, the parish accepted his resignation, to take effect December 1,

their wonderful achievements! Their high soldierly qualities! Their whole career, marked by a virile spirit; a decisive energy; a brave persistence; a patient endurance, which reflect the high military qualities of the men of the same race, kin beyond sea, who won victory for Wolfe at Quebec! Made Ingliss hold Lucknow against fearful odds! and who planted the Cross of St. George on the walls of Delhi, in the midst of the mutiny! If a like success did not attend finally the grand achievements of the soldiers of the South the causes may be traced, partly to disparity of numbers and resources, and partly to other serious disabilities of a different kind, which the loyalty of the armies to the flag and the forbearance of the people in their homes for the sake of The Cause have forbid all reference to or mention! Lee wore the gray! Since then 'Tis right's and honor's hue! He honored it, that man of men, And wrapped it round the true. Wm. A. Courtenay. Innisfallen, October, 1898.
or destroyed, and a portion of the records of the County Court of Middlesex being also lost or destroyed, information concerning the early roads of Medford is scant and most unsatisfactory. Some information can, however, be gathered from the remaining county records, the records of other towns, and from deeds. Salem street is shown upon a map supposed to have been made in the year 1633, and Main street and the Menotomy road (Broadway) on one made in 1637 (see Historical Register for October, 1898, pages 120 and 122). Salem street was spoken of as early as the year 1638, by the several names of Salle path, Salem path, Salem highway, The way to Mistick, and Salem path to Mistick Ford. A portion of High street was also spoken of in the same year as the Ware highway, and later as The way to the Wears. The River road (a part of Riverside avenue) was referred to in a deed dated 1657 as The common Highway leading from the Mansion House (Wellington) unto Charlestown Commons and Meadfor

Christian Union, which has greatly interested our young people. Brother Woodbridge continued with us until December, 1893, when he resigned, and became Professor of Applied Christianity in the Divinity School, Tufts College. Soon after the resignation of Rev. W. S. Woodbridge, an engagement was made with the Rev. W. H. Dearborn, who for many years was pastor of the Universalist society in Hartford, Conn. We were much favored with the ability of this pastor, who remained with us until October, 1898. At a parish meeting held in January, 1899, it was voted unanimously to extend a call to the Rev. Clarence L. Eaton, who graduated the previous year from Tufts Divinity School. He immediately commenced his services as pastor, and remains so at this date. On the 16th day of March he was ordained and installed with appropriate ceremonies by the following clergymen: Invocation, by Charles H. Leonard, D. D.; responsive reading, by Rev. Edson Reissnider and the people; reading of the
