h gathering momentum, the 2,040-lb. bell swung around, and out on the breezy morning air came its sonorous vibrations in the key of E. Mr. Curtis grasped the rope, gave a few vigorous pulls, and resigned it to the ringer to finish the duty of the time. The brief service in the tower was a fitting prelude to the morning worship and dedication of the Curtis Memorial Bell, which came from Meneely's foundry and bears the inscription Presented to the First Baptist Church, Medford, by Elisha B. Curtis, 1906 In memory of His Father, Asa F. Curtis, His Mother, Achsah L. Curtis, His Sister, Mary Curtis Breed, His Wife, Lucia Leadbetter Curtis. The destruction of the Methodist bell in the preceding year and rebuilding farther away by that society, with a different hour of service in the Mystic Church, suggested the need of a bell in the Baptist tower, and after some consideration of the matter, Mr. Curtis felt, It's up to me to provide the bell. It is safe to say that no bell ever p
rland; A Model Democracy. March 16 Mrs. Ruth Dame-Coolidge graciously entertained our Society with a paper on the Rise of the Gothic Cathedral. It was a scholarly piece of work, given without manuscript, and held her hearers with strong interest. April 20 Moses W. Mann, who has given of himself so much to our Society, and is the indefatigable editor of the Register, read a paper on Medford Bells, some thirty-six in all, containing, as all his papers do, a fund of information. Mr. Elisha B. Curtis and others gave personal reminiscences on the subject, and also of the Medford family noted for their skill in ringing bells and entertaining exhibitions of the same. May 18 Charles Edward Mann, President of the Malden Historical Society, gave an informal talk on Sam Walter Foss as he knew him in early life, when both were beginning on journalistic careers and undertaking literary work. This interchange of courtesies with our neighbors is a happy phrase of our work. Mrs. August

h him felt the impress of the real dignity, quality and magnitude of his being; he was an industrious student of the Scriptures which was manifest in his expositions at the family prayer circle of the church. He was a most cautious adviser, leaning a little too much on the side of ultraconservatism at times, but always in brotherly concord with the majority. As a deacon of his church he was an example to all, and was everywhere known as a man of high ideals and principles, sympathetic, kindly and of a most magnanimous spirit. As a member of this Society he took an active part in its deliberations and was interested in all the plans for its welfare. His fund of knowledge of the early days was appreciated here as elsewhere, and his association with the members is a delightful experience long to be remembered. In 1904 Mr. Curtis' wife died, and he on March 26, 1915. Two daughters, Mrs. H. H. Smith, of Lawrence, Mass., and Miss Alice E. Curtis, of this city, survive him. P. W. A.
