A valuable gift. A pleasant and well-attended social meeting opened the season for the Medford Historical Society at its rooms October 16.

The president's plan will, it is hoped, encourage a larger attendance, and increase the interest in these Saturday evening gatherings, thus developing the social side of the Society's life and correspondingly enlivening the interest in its more serious work. In accordance with this
