IN almost every town or city may be found traces, faint, perhaps, yet bearing silent testimony of pursuits once followed or perhaps of enterprises abandoned. All such have had their effect, beneficial or otherwise, upon the community; and upon investigation prove of interest, as showing what spirit of improve

e family attended the first meeting-house, where Captain Peter built a pew for himself in the best location, an indication of his important position in the community as well as of his wealth. I have not attempted to trace the course of the house through all its varied history. It soon passed out of the hands of the Tufts family, and we have no traditions to build up about its part in the Revolution. It cannot there compete with the Royall house. It finally passed into the hands of General Lawrence, who with his usual public spirit and generosity, saved the old building and put it into repair. He might doubtless have done more had not the fallacy of the Cradock legend been discovered at that time, so that the house lost its claim to a unique position. Last week, taking as my guide, cicerone and friend, Mr. Mann, I spent a morning in studying the old house. Of course, much of the interior is restoration, and even the bricks of some of the old fireplaces are replaced. But take
s while they are serene under a cloudless sky or tossing in white-capped rage when lashed by the wind-driven rain. Brooks there are, which take their murmuring course through fern-grown bottom lands or rush in miniature cascades down the rocky steeps, later to ripple gently toward the waters of the Mystic. Motorist and pedestrian have access to excellent observatories, one at Bear hill, Stoneham, the other in the very heart of the Medford section of the Fells, a monument to the name of Lawrence. Both are easily reached from convenient roads. The variety of views from the latter tower are exceptional. From its base stretch wooded hills to the borders of suburban Boston. Beyond these districts can be seen the ocean, the Hub itself, the famed Blue hills and the Mystic lakes. Bridle paths through all this scenic grandeur are innumerable. One might canter on unendingly each day along a different route. In the winter, ponds where the lily blooms in season offer their icebound

ars people have used the same decoration in their new dwellings, but they did not call them port-holes. Since our visit to this house we have made effort to learn something of its condition at the time when it was restored or renovated by General Lawrence, its then owner. Interviews have been had with several well-known Medford men who worked upon it and whose evidence is credible. None fixed the exact date, but all agreed that it was about 1890. Mr. Ernest Moore said he was about the house nearly three months while in the employ of General Lawrence, who had as architect Mr. Lyman Sise. Mr. J. H. Archibald, a well known builder of Medford, made the repairs and Mr. Moore had a general oversight of them. Replying to our query as to the internal condition he said, It was a mess; everything torn out inside and old-finish stuff piled up in the attic What of the stairs? All pulled down and new ones built. Like the old? Yes, in the same place, but a door was put on the landing part
