The Old Fire Alarm. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 7 May 1887
The Old Fire Alarm. Many readers of the Press easily recall tbe days when the tidings of fire were communicated to tbe public by means of a general clangor of church bells, which of course could give only a very general idea of tb* special location of the danger. Tbe authorities attempted at one time to partially regulate the matter by causing particular bells to be rung for especial localities; but we remember well the popular outcry against this arrangement as not giving a sufficiently wide-spread notice, particularly at night. In those days there wss certainly a far more delightful excitement fot the übiquitous small boy than in tbe present eta ef aaHni mlty, and steam fire engines; these was, moreover, a charm about the oH fashioned j 'machine," with its jingling bell and its long drag rope. But we are ia little danger ot going back to tbe old system at aruse-t, It would be interesting to give tbe ptaperttasete number of fires now as compared with -the good oM times of which we ...

Some Inconvenience. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 7 May 1887
Some Inconvenience. The rule adopted by the Cambridge Bailroad Company, requiring pas-wager* to embark on horse ears and to leave the same only at street corner*, which went Into effect last Sunday, has occasioned some inconvenience to tbe travelling public. Those mostly affected by the new departure are infrequent riders wbo have not seen the printed notices posted In the cars. As a general thing, however, the rule has been understood by the regular patrons, who have suffered no inconvenience. We can see no reason why the rule of the Company is not a good one, which the public will soon become accustomed to. It is claimed for it that better time will be made between the termini of the road and that a saving of wear and tear will result. Apropos to the foregoing a lady correspondent says, "that the new notice in the cars delights .the patrons of the railroad company, for If they are henceforth to stop only at corners or crossings, it will no car has ever done yet since the strike, a...
