Charles Brooks and his work for Normal schools. Copyright by John Albree, 1907. by John Albree of Swampscott. [Read before the Medford Historical Society, Saturday, May 5, 1906.] By way of prelude let me ask if the traditions will be violated if a text is chosen, especially if it is agreed that the text will not again be referred to? This is necessary by reason of the comments that have been made by some on learning that a paper was in preparation on Charles Brooks and His Work for Normal Schools. These comments, more or less diplomatic and guarded, have been to the effect that the name of Horace Mann ought to appear in the title. The text is One star differeth from another star in glory. ON a summer afternoon, how many years ago is not material, a baby was a member of a little party that called at the home of the Brooks family in Medford, a home that by reason of its furnishings and surroundings was entitled to be called the Brooks Mansion.

peakers presented highly interesting papers, and replies to queries made were followed by remarks on all occasions. The small number present at some of the preceding season's meetings led the committee to omit announcement of a Saturday evening course. Four meetings were held, however, as speakers were procured. On December 4 Professor Evans of Tufts College spoke upon the Influence of Emigration upon the Foreign Countries. On January 1 our ever-welcome member, Mr. John Albree of Swampscott, gave his Story Gleaned from a Young Officer's Diary, showing much research as well as skill in its making, and was listened to with interest. Old Stage-Coach Days was read by Miss Eliza M. Gill (also a member) on February 5, and appears in this issue. An especially pleasant hour was spent in reminiscence and answer to queries after its reading. On March 5 Mr. John E. Gilman (just elected commander of the G. A. R. at its National Encampment) delivered a thrilling address on the rela
al history, and for the entertainment of their auditors or readers. October 20 we were indebted to Rosewell B. Lawrence for the charming account of his summer in Great Britain. He had many varied and pleasant experiences, of which he spoke informally in detail, and so shared with eager listeners his privilege of travelling. All enjoyed the accounts of visits to land of Dickens and trips to quaint London inns, and the recital of a canoe trip on the Thames. November 17 John Albree of Swampscott, our outof-town member and the enthusiastic secretary of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, gave a most interesting paper upon Books and Other Things. He illustrated the address by exhibiting a collection of books selected at random from his own library, valuable for historic interest, or as models of the bookmakers' art. December 15 Rev. Frank I. Paradise of Grace Church, Medford, gave a happy, informal talk(illustrated with maps and pictures) on Switzerland; A Model Democ

The Society's work, 1919-20. The opening meeting, October 20, was a Get-Together Social, enjoyed by all present. November 17, John Albree, Esq., of Swampscott (a member) gave an illustrated talk, An Old Quaker's Diary. A graphic recital of War Experiences, by Rev. Henry Francis Smith of West Medford on December 15. The largest attendance was on March 15. Mr. Malcom Davis, Superintendent, gave an address on the Boy Scouts and seventeen Scouts gave examples of their work and training, after which refreshments were served. May 17, Librarian George S. Evans of Somerville told of the settling of Woburn in The Seven against the Wilderness, presenting a copy to our library. October 20, February 16 and April 19 the meetings were conducted by our members in informal manner and Questionnaire, What do you know about salt hay proving of interest. The annual meeting, January 19, came in the wake of a blizzard and deep snow. Favorable reports of officers were received—our home free o

Story of a Bible We are presenting in this issue the portrait of a man who was (if not a citizen) a resident of Medford for well toward seven decades ago, and who is still living in our neighboring city of Malden. Rev. Edward Stuart Best, Methodist Episcopal clergyman, began his ministry in 1851, serving one year each in three western Massachusetts towns, and one in the nearer town of Swampscott. At the annual conference of his church, April, 1855, his appointment was to Medford. Prior to that time, one year's service in a place was the rule of his church. But a change in polity had occurred and he served the Medford church and people to the new time limit of two years. His active service in the Christian ministry was an even fifty years, to twenty-three churches. As the time limit was extended to three and again to five years, we find his terms three and four years, one a re
