had an orchard on the west slope of
iicncon Hill. Governor Endicott es
tablished nurserius in Salem as early
as NIL'S, and in 1H4K sold five hundred
apple trees to Williain Trask for 280
acres of land. Governor Winthrop
was very prominent In horticultural'
matters as early as 1030. having land
on the Mystic river and a garden at
the foot of Hcliool street, and also
another one at Governor's Island. The
colonial legislature granted him the
use of this island for a rental of two
bushels of apples, one for the gover
nor and one for the .legislature.
In 1730 apples were for sale in the
market from the Jilackstone orchard.
Hon, J'aul Dudley sent to England in
17-'ilan account of the culture rt fruit
in Koxbury. He tells of trees -there
which wore from nx to ten feet high and
each lK'uriiig from thirty to thirty
eight bushels. He closed his-kittim By
saying: "Our people, of late years have

! Ths unfortunate toad has from time-
Immemorial been, an object of distrust
and aversion, especially among the
common people. A pleasing tale runs
that a gentleman, walking along
country lane, came suddenly upon
village boy belaboring the .crushed
body of a toad with a heavy stick and
exclaiming at eacn wow, "i 11 lurn 'e
to be a toadf" whereat the Indignant
newcomer, seising the miscreant by
. bis collar, vigorously applied a cane
to his legs, remarking, "I'll lam rou
to be a boy!" The popular hatred of
the toad, Indeed, Is of such antiquity
and Is still so general as to seem In
eradlcable. That the creature la not
dangerously poisonous it Is hopeless
to attempt to convince the ordinary
rustic. Doubtless this belief has its
origin In the acrid secretion which the
toad has the power of emitting when
disturbed or annoyed unduly and
which will cause a dog that has In
cautiously picked up a toad to foam
at the mouth. Again, the uncouth ap
pearance of the creature has had much
to do with the feeling of repulsion
with which It has always been regard
ed. "Squat like a toad" Is the phrase
by which Milton describes the evil one
essaying to reach the ear of Eve.
Superstition, In truth, has laid a firm
hold on the toad's misshapen figure,
The belief, not only In the existence of
"toad stones," but In their efficacy as
h sovereign remedy for certain Ills,
yiilch Is still common In parts of the
'country, Is of very ancient date,
"There fs to be found In the heads of
old and great toads," soys Fenton,
writing In I860, "a stone they call
borax, or stelon, which, being used as
u-lngs, gives forewarning of venom.'
in tne bonaesuorougn collection Is a
silver ring of the fifteenth century In
which one of these toad stones Is set
a bey wore supposed always to bear
on their surface a figure resembling a
toad, being somewhat similar trinkets
one may Imagine, to the scarab&us
ornament of the Egyptians. Another
early writer remarks, "A toad stone

Perhaps the most familiar supersti

Which supposes them capable of exist

Sixteen years afterward, it was found
necessary to open a gap in this wall

creature was found alive In its strong
hold. It seemed at Brut In a very tor

the blessings of freedom, made Its way

for a long time without food, and it Is

down. Finally it slipped and fell
through a grating on the sidewalk Into
ouout two feet of water. He made
some efforts to recover it, but finally
decided to wait till the water was
gone, and then it was found that the
coin was also gone. Another time the
same fellow was coming up the street
with 110,000 In twenty dollar pieces

the sidewalk It burst, and the coins
rolled in all directions. A number of
people rushed to his assistance, but he
described a large circle around the
sack and, waving bis arms wildly, or
dered everybody to "stand back." He
recovered most of the coin, but decided
to get out of the banking business.

the bank and deposited $200 and took
a certificate, of deposit. The clerk
who made out the certificate was pre
occupied and wrote $2,000 on it and

cash at night he was $1,800 short He
knew where the mistake was and tried
to hunt up the Chinaman; but al
though he got a clew, he could never
find him, and he remained $1,800 short
on the books. He had a notice of the
date of the certificate, amount, etc.
pasted in bis desk and was always on
the lookout to catch the certificate as
it came In. Just a year from the day
the deposit was made the Chinaman
walked Into the bank and presented
the certificate to be cashed. When
asked how much he wanted he said
