—Most of the superstitions about the moon come to us directly from old English, Scottish, and Irish sources. In Devonshire, England, it is lucky to see the new moon over the right shoulder, but unlucky over the left; but to see It straight before you is good fortune tattle end of the month. Ia Renfrewshire, if a man's house be burned during the wane of the moon it is unlucky, but if the moon is waxing it is lucky. To have money, particularly gold or silver, In your pocket at that time is a tokeu of good fortune, but to be without is a very omen. In Olkney it is considered very unlucky to flit or move from one place to another daring the waning of the moon. Old people in some parts of Argylshlre are wont to Invoke the divine blessing on the moon after the monthly change. The Gaelic word for fortune is derived from that denoting full moon, and a marriage or birth occuring at that period is believed to augur prosperity.

"HELL BROKE LOOSE!" [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 26 February 1887
"HELL BROKE LOOSE!" Whichever direction our sympathies may take, whether witb the railroad company, or its dissatisfied employees, all good citizens must unite in deploring and denouncing the riotous demonstrations of Sunday last. Kven those who most regret the suggestion of weakness in the Mayor's much talked ot request to the Directors a few days since, will admit that the civic authorities were not found wanting in the final emergency. It will be difficult to praise too highly the Chief of Police, and his energetic and courageous assistants on the force, for their timely and discreet action under very difficult and Tying circumstances. The public will also appreciate the wisdom and foresight of Mayor Russell in his ample preparations to meet and foil the designing villains who are responsible for all this contemplated or accomplished violation of law. and disturbance of the public peace. We think it is generally conceded that the ex-employes of the railroad had no direct connecti...
Election of Aldermen by Wards. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 26 February 1887
Election of Aldermen by Wards. The proposition to elect aldermen by wards, ought to receive the favorable consideration of the legislature. The plan is to have the aldermen voted for by tin- entire city, and the two in each ward having lbe highest number of votes to be declared elected. This is precisely the plan umiei which our school committee and principal assessors are elected, and the election of aldermen should be upon the same plan. I'nder our present system, in of the last twelve years, some ward has had but one alderman, and some other ward has had three. In one of these years Was*. Four had nonc v and Wnrd Three kmifatsri In three of the twelve years. Ward One, mie of the largest and wealthiest Wards, has Ind but one alderman. There are many very important matters committed entirely to tbe aldermen, and iv these the non-repiesentatiun of a Ward in tlie upper branch is liable to operate disastrously to the Ward which has in aldermen, or is but half represented. There can be...

The March Atlantic. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 26 February 1887
The March Atlantic. This is a most excellent number of the old Boston magazine. Mr. Lowell's lines, "Fancy or Fact." with which it opens, if not equal lo much of ihe illustrious author's former work, is yet a subtle, suggestive, and charming poem. Lawrence Saxe. probably a Mates, plume, gives the second, and closing part, of -'The Lady from Maine." Whoever this author may be, should he continue to write stories equal in power and absorbing interest to this lianjf talc in the Atlantic, can scarcely fail in -winning a great name in our literature. Readers of the magazine will naturally turn Hist to Dr. Holmes* delightful paper, the first of a series, entitled, "One Hundred Days in Europe." It is entirely worthy of its author; the style is as simple and admirable as anything from the pen of the Autocrat; it brims over with that rare combination of wit and good nature, of which this most genial of writers has the secret; it inspires familiar experiences wilh such fresh originality, that...

The Chief of Police and every oue of his subordinates, who have been identified with the troubles arising from tlie railroad strike are to be commented for their elliciency. and for the valor exhibited on the occasion of tlie tuinuk on Cambridge street last Sunday afternoon. Ihe officers have shown that in emergencies of this kind that they may be depended upon. On tlie first page we print a letter from •Aunt Xabby." She has visited tlie ihfalH, and gives her impressions. Although "Aunt Xabby" is a lone "lone vviddir." she is a lively one, and we shall be pleased to hear limn lie- often. Judge Orcutt. in sentencing the rioters, bas covered Messrs! wilh glory. He has shown great wi-dom. and has the thanks of all law-abiding citizens. It is slated that a well known citizen in Ward One has started a subscription lo purchase a backbone for Mayor llussell.

The ears attacked with brickbats and stones were those of the Webster avenue line. Capt. Murray ami other officers put in an appearance and endeavored to disperse the mob which was lining augmented la numbers. Finding It necessary to disperse the unlawful gathering he telegraphed to the several stations for ailiiitioii.il help which reached him as soon as possible. I'pon the arrival of the relays the mob was found to be of gigantic proportions ami heroic measures were necessary to quell Ihe outbreak.
