No Discrimination Now. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 4 June 1887
No Discrimination Now. At Hampton, Va., the National Cemetery contains 5,715 bodies of deceased soldiers, of which only 493 were unknown. To the memory of these brave fellows, many of whom were on the Confederate side, a very pretty and substantial granite monument has been erected through the intercession of that well known philanthropist and humanitarian. Miss Dorothea L. Dix. By her efforts several thousands of dollars were collected for this purpose and for the annual decorations of tbe graves. It may- be remarked in this connection that there has been no discrimination between the blue and the gray, on the part of the National Government, in giving burial to the latter, whenever It is practicable to do so.

There are three things in this world that I can't understand; one is that you catch a cold without trying; that if you let it run on it stays with you, and if you stop it it goes away. —Two great enemies—Hood's Sarsaparilla and impure blood. The latter is utterly defeated by the peculiar medicine. This country has consumed eighty-one and one-quarter tons of quinine during the past year. And yet even that great dose has not been able to keep the country from shaking. —Backache, stitches in the side, inflation and soreness of the bowels, are symptoms of a disordered state of the digestive and assimilative organs, which can be corrected by the use of Ayer's Cathartic Pills.

There is in some of the streets of the city a decided superfluity of howling hucksters with everything conceivable in the way of fruits, fish and vegetables for sale at all prices. At certain hours in the day the noise of these traveling tradesmen is of a lively type. The efforts of City Messenger Pratt to raise funds for band concerts should be encouraged. The smallest amount will be received by him. This is a jubilee year,— new bridge and band concerts. Deacon Geo. W. Chipman, of Brookline street, is President of the Baptist Grove Association at Cottage City. The annual meeting there in August promises to be this year a great success. The Cambridge Kailroad officials have found their recent rule to stop cars only at street corners to have worked contrary lo their expectations, and have cancelled it. There was as much inconvenience to the company as there was to the public, hence the discontinuance of the order, which was not approved by Superintendent Bancroft. Oar neighbor of the...
Which? [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 4 June 1887
Which? It would be well if the city, the state and the federal authorities in Boston would manage to agree as to the proper position of the flag on Memorial I)ay. It is surely in bad taste to allow the national ensign to fly ax top-mast from one building, while on a neighboring structure it swings mournfully at half-staff. We believe that our way in Cambridge is the correct one: it is in no true sense a day of mourning.
A Venerable Holiday. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 4 June 1887
A Venerable Holiday. The first Monday in June. Artillery Klection Day, used to be iv our younger days a very important occasion. School didn't keep, and all good Cambridge boys and girls went into Boston and outo the Common to see the Governor "take his seat." Times have changed, and the onlypotentate who sits down in view of their descendents, is the schoolmaster. But the good old ceremonies of "lection day are still carried out after the ancient fa-hiou on the Common, just as they were almost 250 years ago. Customs change; men die. and great political parties have their ri.-e and fall like the tides: but the sun rises and sets, moons wax and wave, and the Ancient and Honorable Artillery listens to ihe annual sermon, elects its officers on the drumhead, and dines in Faneuil Hall, as of old.
The New Bridge. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 4 June 1887
The New Bridge. The recent suggestion of (Jen. Hazard Stevens in reference to the projected bridge. now indeed become a fortunate certainly in the near future, has uiauv arguments in iv favor. Geu. Stevens urges the wisdom of making it a monumental and very cosily structure, —one in all ways worthy of the wealth of the metropolis, and the litetary and classic reHown of our own city. As we said, there is much to urge in favor of this plau; the bridge itself, instead of being merely another meins of transit between the two municipalities, would then h&gt;- a splendid evidence of wealth, munificence and taste. It would be lot all time the glory of the sis ter cities. It can do no suit of harm to speculate on the magiiitici nee Of a scheme, that will, of course, never be a reality. The outlay, although undoubtedly in the end an enormous advantage to both Cambridge aud 80-ton, is by far too great to be seriously contemplated; moreover the time it would take to consummate any such...

CITY HALL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 4 June 1887
CITY HALL NOTES. A very interesting hearing Wat had on Wednesday evening before the Aldermen on the question of removing the southerly track on Main street and the tract in Green and Mt. Auburn streets. While tin- railroad represent:!- i tives did not protest strongly against the pro- ' posed removal, yet they did desire lo have the tracks remain long enough to allow them to introduce the eleetrie or eahle system of power in lieu of horses, which according to President Cumraings cannot lie employed under low rates of fares and high wages with protit. We trust that the movement against the building of a sewer for the relief of the Garden- ' Shepard street districf. with an outlet into Charles River at the foot of Bath street, is not actuated with the desire to have postponed a great public improvement. A rcniunstranee condemning the judgment of tbe committee and the Engiueer was presented at the last meeting of the Board, and singular to state the names or : some were identical with ...
