ndecision in their attitudes, with their trunnions buried in gravel, and there are slight indications of a desire on their part for recumbency, as if they thought that Cambridge did not appreciate their watchfulness. After March 17, 1776, when Boston was evacuated, Cambridge ceased to be involved in the military events of the Revolution. It was a curious feature of the preliminary contest of the colonies with Great Britain, that the people constantly asserted their loyalty to the Mother Coavailable for such uses through extensive means of preparation. That this could be accomplished was, however, recognized by the government in 1805, when Cambridge was declared to be a port of delivery. At that time it seemed quite probable that Boston and Charlestown and Cambridge might avail themselves of the great advantages offered by the protected inner basin called the Back Bay as a place for loading and discharging vessels of light draft. An extensive attempt was made to overcome the na

The streets were unpaved, unmacadamized, uncurbed, unlighted, and unprotected from furious and reckless driving by Boston pleasure-seekers inspired with Cambridge refreshments. One of the most conspicuous acts of Mayor Green during his first year was to break up the common practice of pasturing cows in the streets. The city gave to the citizens but little protecti893-94-95-96.1855.Groton, Mass. Lawyer. From the above it will be seen that all of our mayors have been New England men, and that of the entire number sixteen were born in Massachusetts. Two of the number were born in Cambridge, and five were Boston boys. Sixteen were born under town-meeting rule, and received their first impressions of community government in that way, while the six who were born under municipal charter government were familiar in early life only with the simple workings o
the fine home quarter of Boston, the remote lands of Cambridge were brought conveniently near to this and all other centres of the capital city; furthermore, these lands were in the heart of what was to be the great metropolis of the future, when Boston and its fringe of beautiful cities and towns should come together under a single name and assume a place among the great cities of the world. As soon as the stress of the commercial disturbance of the seventies was relaxed, the first step forw) charged with inquiring into and reporting upon the proper treatment for the public weal of the historic stream. This was followed by the recommendations of the Metropolitan Park Commission, a new body, created in 1892 to supplement the work of Boston, and to provide open spaces for the larger Boston, in favoring the appropriation of the shores of the river to park uses. The new bridge, fittingly named from the college to which its connecting avenue leads, was finished in 1890, but, awaiting

Boston, for instance, established reading and writing schools in 1682, the Latin School being the only public school in town down to that time. There was, however, no formal provision for girls in such schools until October 19, 1789, when the town voted that children of both sexes should be taught in the reading and writing schools of their newly reorganized system. Even then and for forty years thereafter Boston girls were excluded from these schools from October to April; and when finally, in 1828, they were graciously permitted to attend school, like the boys, all the year round, the policy of separating the sexes was begun,—a policy that is in vogue to-day in many grammar schools in the older sections of the city as well as in the four central high schools. Doubtless there were girls as well as boys in the early dame schools. These were private schools that received children of the kindergart

Rawson & Morrison manufacturing Co. The Rawson & Morrison Manufacturing Co. are designers, patentees, and manufacturers of hoisting-engines, coal-handling machinery, boilers, stationary engines, electric hoists, fertilizer dryers, hydraulic pumps and presses, special and general machinery. It is a well-known fact that Boston was the birthplace of the portable hoisting-engine. As early as 1835 the necessity for handling weights by other than manual labor forced itself upon contractors, pile-drivers, and bridge-builders. These industries early began to assume vast proportions, and it was to supply their demands that the first hoisting-engine was manufactured in this vicinity. Hittinger, Cook & Co., of Charlestown, were the first to design and manufacture this class of engines, and did a large business during t
