Timber was procured from Medford, Malden, Woburn, Burlington, Lexington, Stoneham, Andover, and their adjoining towns. Mr. Magoun's first purchase of it was trees standing in what is now Winchester. He gave six dollars per ton: the seller was to cut and deliver it. It was more difficult to get the white-oak plank. When the Middlesex Canal was opened, a supply came through that channel; and large rafts were floated into the river through a side lock, which was near the entrance of Medford Turnpike. With our first builders, their price per ton for building was twenty-five dollar

uing season. In 1855, Joseph L. Wheeler bought the upper reach, from Marble Brook to the Pond, for $27.50 per annum; and James Rogers bought the lower reach, from Marble Brook to the eastern border of the town, for $122.50 per annum.

A writer says, that, about the year 1800, it was common to take fifteen hundred shad annually at Little River (near Fresh Pond); but that, in 1852, there was not one taken; and that, proportionally, a similar statement might be made concerning alewives.
