story, the Wood's mill of actual fact.
In the first Medford Journal of 1857 there was no attempt at pictorial illustration, nor yet in the great blanket sheet of Usher's Medford Journal of 1871, that we can recall.
No files were preserved by the publisher and only a few stray copies are known.
In 1865 Mr. Nathan Brown of Wesed and a little later that of the division of the town.
Two weekly papers were being published in town, indeed there had been for ten years, for just a year after Usher's venture with the Journal, A. B. Morss began the Chronicle in 1872.
After three years of existence the Journal vanished, leaving the field alone to the Chronicleticle are very rare, especially those of the Brooks history, and wish that every reader of this might examine them at the Public Library, as also the later ones of Usher.
Without doing so, we fear such will, like some early artists, draw on their imagination to know how the old town looked.
