ome of Dr. Tufts and that across Forest street, where was once the Cotting bakery, were standing, and the town pump in working order. Spot pond water came later with the stone water trough now gone. The railway station and some store fronts have been changed a little, the Bigelow building and Tufts hall have replaced those named. Otherwise the surroundings of the old Medford market-place are the same today. The near future will witness a marked change; indeed it has already begun. The Withington bakery, for several years disused, has been demolished and a theater and business block is there building. Tufts hall, built by Dr. Weymouth in ‘72, the brick building adjoining and the Seccomb house of 1756 (recently known as the City Hall Annex) have all been sold and are all to be removed and a modern business building erected. It is to be hoped that the good taste manifested so long ago by the builders between Salem and old Ship street, and more recently at the opposite corner of

alem street, the rear reached by a path, later called Blanchard's lane, now Ashland street. Further back a brick building contained his ovens. After he retired, Timothy Brigden, whose bread was excellent, was baker for a time, but in 1829 Henry Withington used the ovens until his own were built. Capt. Andrew Blanchard, Jr., had, ere this, purchased the Francis house and the older ones westward. The latter he sold to Withington, reserving certain rights and prohibiting certain acts on partWithington, reserving certain rights and prohibiting certain acts on part of the land. Exercising those rights he made alterations improving the house, residing there until his death in 1853. For a brief time Alfred A. Pierce was its owner, and next, in 1866, Charles P. Lauriat, the well-known gold-beater, who used the brick oven-building as a workshop. By inheritance it passed to his children, and from some of them to the Historical Society in June, 1902. Here's hoping that its solid brick walls may long stand, housing honorable and legitimate business on old Sa
The Withington bakery. DURING the first week in May the old buildings so long the home of tlaced on their sign, Established 1825. Henry Withington had never learned the trade or business oed in business in that year. The ovens that Withington and Lane used were those of some earlier bak. After two years Mr. Lane went out and Mr. Withington continued in business by himself. But on ears ago moved next the common. In 1830 Mr. Withington moved into the old house now demolished, lMedford Historical Society's building. Henry Withington subsequently erected in the rear of his prated or cracked—hence the name, crackers. Mr. Withington did not originate the Medford cracker.

Old landmarks gone. WITH the demolition of the old Withington bakery, the dismantling of the Historical Society's former home, and the alteration of half the tenement-block known as Doctors' Row for business purposes, the view of Salem street from Medford square is materially changed. The glass and stucco front of the latter, the marble, and tapestry brick of the theatre building, and the stucco walls that hide the little that was left at Ashland street, are in marked contrast to the view in May last. We were told that the old-time architecture would be there retained, at least in the upper stories, and so stated in the June register. But we look in vain therefor. The legend is, Bvilt, 1802; Rebvilt, 1915 but what the craft shown in the front panel may be— ark, viking ship or hydroplane-we are waiting to learn.
