Old Station Memories. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 16 April 1887
Old Station Memories. The following is from the pen of Mr. F. 'H. Forbes, a frequent contributor te the Press. It being go local in character we copy it entire from the Saturday Evening Gazette: The Fitchburg Railroad corporation has recently sold the old, unsightly passenger station at North Cambridge, or. as the station was known forty years ago, '■Porter's. Cambridge." There is a history to these old stations which might read like a romance. The first passenger, station at this point was built about ten years after the Brighton station on the old Boston &amp; Worcester Railroad, and was nearly its facsimile, it was a station under the hill, or built into the hill. When the Boston ft Worcester Railroad was tirst surveyed and laid our, it cut directly through the then celebrated Winship garden aud nurse, i-s. A cross road ran from what was then known as Brighton Corner to tbe main street in Brighton Centre, ou which was located the Cattle Fair Hotel, presided over by Zach. ...
Anniversary Celebration. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 16 April 1887
Anniversary Celebration. The first anniversary of the Catholic Young Men's Gymnasium was fittingly celebrated Easter Monday night by a grand ball tn the gymnasium, corner of Prospect and Harvard streets. The spacious interior was tastefully, although not elaborately decorated, and the whole building was brilliantly lighted. In the early part of the evening a very pleasant concert was given by Wiggin's Orchestra. This part of the festivities was enjoyed by Rev. Thomas Scully, P. R., Rev. John F. Munily. Rev. John E. Hickey, Rev. T. J. Whalen, Rev. John J. Griffin, Aldermen Kelley and Coveney and President J. H. Corcoran of the Council and Assistant City Clerk Edward J. Brandon. All of whom were present as invited guests. At the close of the concert or shortly after 9 o'clock the grand march, led by Mr. William J. Power* and lady, commenced. There were fully two hundred and fifty couples on the floor, and as they merrily danced to the bright music furnished for that purpsse, the scene...
Grace M. E. Church. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 16 April 1887
Grace M. E. Church. At Grace M. E. Church, last Sunday closed up the conference year. In the forenoon the pastor, Rev. N. B. Fisk, gave a report of the work accomplished during the past year; a very encouraging report it was, the church being in better condition in every way than ever before. During the year there has been over IUO seekers at the altar; the pastor has received 44 in full connection and 85 on probation, making a total membership of over 350. All current expenses have been met, so the church can begin the conference year without any arrearages from the last year; the new church edifice is being completed and they will probably get into it about May Ist; the pastor will go to the conference with a" very encouraging report for the year. He has worked very hard for the society and deserves a great deal of praise for his success in the church; be will be returned to this charge another year and will no doubt milke this year a greater success than last. In the afternoon Re...

Cambridge Temperance Reform Association. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 16 April 1887
Cambridge Temperance Reform Association. The usual weekly meeting of the association was held last Sunday evening in Temple Hall with a good attendance. After tbe usual devotional exercises which were led by Rev. Mr. Grant of Maiden, the president introduced Mr. W. H. French also of Maiden, whose remarks were of a local nature, referring to the local option law now in that city and the beneficial results thereof. Mr. French was extremely eulogistic of Mayor Coggan, as was also the Rev. Mr. Grant, who spoke later. The president then introduced the speaker of the evening, the Minor of Maiden. The Mavoris a fluent speaker ami interesting withal. The gist of his remarks related to the suppression of the rum traffic in his own city. He laid stress upon the fact that the citizens and the municipal authorities were in sympathy with each other, without which the enforcement of the law would be a dismal failure. At the conclusion of his address the meeting came to a close. The president anno...

—Peculiar in medicinal merit and wonderful cures—Hood's Sarsaparilla. Now te the time to take it, for now it will do the most good. —A gentleman from Prince Biver, in Utah, says the Indians near Fort Duchesne take it as a personal indignity that colored troops have been set at that post, and Bay that they will clear out the whole gang. —A perfectly sound body and a mind unimpaired are possible only with pure blood. Leading medical authorities indorse Ayer's Sarsaparilla as the best blood purifying medicine in existence. It vastly increases the working and productive powers of both hand and brain. —Mrs. Wiggers—Dear, dear, I'm almost dead, but I'll have to chop some wood. Mrs. Wigfern— Chop wood, indeed! Why doesn't your usband do that!' "Oh, he never has time to do anything. He writes in his study an hour every day, and has to rest after that." "Humph? What's he writing?" "Another book on the labor problem."
Clothing for Early Spring. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 16 April 1887
Clothing for Early Spring. One department only of Messrs. Macullar, Parker &amp; Company's clothing house te made the subject of a seasonable advertisement in to-day's paper,—and that is the department for the sale of ready made clothing. The announcement refers mainly to spring overcoats and to suits for business and "dress" purposes, all now in stock and ready for present use. There are four distinct branches or departments of the general cloth, clothing and out-fitting business carried on in the firm's two great buildings on Washington Bt.reet, besides the shops for manufacturing, which are exceptional in number and extent. If all the employes therein were marshated in line ou Boston Commou some fine day' the array would be like an "army with banners" in point of numbers, and from another point of view it would be an imposing demonstration of a leading Bostou industry, In the latter case it would be something to be remembered by thoughtful observers, as bearing directly u...

—Sunday was an Ideal —aster-day, beautiful with blue skies, an atmosphere balmy and [mild a* that of latter Hay, and the earth everywhere full of tbe abundant promise of Spring. We remember no lovelier day for the great anniversary. —The music on Sunday, was, In many instances, exceptionally line and appropriate, Indeed, so generally was Raster Music a chief feature in tbe services of the day, that it is difficult to select for special notice the performance at any particular church. —There is a sad state of things at tbe Bute House: dignified, and presumably incorruptible senators openly accused of accepting bribes to vote for the extremely unwise and unnecessary division of the famous old town of Beverly. The natives are thoroughly aroused, aod many have strong hopes of an executive veto. —We have had little to say about the trouble in the First Baptist Church.

The Library Again. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 16 April 1887
The Library Again. It is gratifying to notice the unanimity with which the local press urge the necessity of new and adequate quarters for the Cambridge Public Library. The present accommodations are utterly insuflicenr. and even disgraceful. We have often taken occasion to point out the contrast between our own arrangements for this most important institution and the commodious and elegant buildings which adoru neighboring cities and towns. It does not speak well for the generosity or public spirit of our wealthy citizens that no provision has b-een made for a public measure so interesting and important, either bvliving capitalists or by testamentary bequests. Now that the attention of our citizens is being so persistently drawn to the subject, it is not unreasonable to hope for definite action at no distant day.
The Newspapers and the Railroads. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 16 April 1887
The Newspapers and the Railroads. It is understood that the prompt acquiescence of the railroad corporation- in that section of the Interstate Commerce law which practically abolishes the free pass system, will result in large gains to all the companies. This will probably be the case in many instances; but there is another side to the question: those newspapers having any consideiable circulation, which were in the habit of accepting passes from various roads, in nearly all cases rendered an ample equivalent therefor, especially in the matter of editorial notices, a species of free advertising, often of more value than columns of regular advertising matter. This is especially true in the sea-on of cheap railroad excursions. It is supposed that many of the roads have stretched tbe provisions of the law needlessly in withdrawing passes covering only short distances within the state limits.
Defeat of the Aldermanic Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 16 April 1887
Defeat of the Aldermanic Bill. This important measure, after passing the House, and being successfully carried through two stages in the Senate, was finally defeated in its final passage through the upper branch. We regard this as a real and serious misfortune, the Boston Herald to the contrary notwithstanding, as there ia no valid argument which can be adduced against it. It is in the nature of absolute justice to all sections of the city. Can the Herald, or any newspaper or politician whatsoever, furnish any adequate argument for the uutenable theory that either of the five wards of Cambridge should go year after year entirely ■■represented in the Board of Aldermen? And this unfair and unrighteous state of things is likely enough under the present arrangement to prevail forever. But the case is to clear—the evidence so conclusive on the side of the desired legislation, that it cannot in the nature of things be lci.g postponed. Whatever may be said to the contrary, the people of Ca...
