MEDFORD BRANCH RAILROAD. Trains run to and from MEDFORD, a distance of five miles, eight times a day each way. Fare 12 cents. Time, 15 minutes. Season Tickets, $44 a year. This is a beautiful village, and a desirable place for summer residences.

ADVANTAGES OF A RESIDENCE ON THIS ROUTE. Bomerville, Medford, Malden, Melrose, South Reading, and Reading, towns within the range of the special, as well as the longer trains, possess many advantages for country residences, either through the warm season or the whole year, not exceeded by those of any other towns in the vicinity of Boston. The cheapness of the fare, the number of trains, both early and late, in connection with the convenient depot at Boston, render this railroad a desirable channel of intercourse between the city and country. That the advantages of these places are appreciated, is evident from the inereasing demand for residences on this route, the demand for house lots, and the steady rise in the value of the land.

SCENERY. It cannot be denied that the scenery ou every section of this route is unsurpassed. The surface of the country for the first ten niles is beautifully variegated, presenting a continual succession of picturesqu2 views of the country, the city, and the sea. Its hill-tops and valleys are decked with splendid dwellings and tasteful cottages, and nowhere ese be found the union of town and country more complete.

RESIDENCES. Dorchester, Milton, and Quinoy afford locations for some of the most delightful and healthy residences. Savin ANI, Harrison Square, and Neponset, from their proximity to the city, and their attractive scenery, have become favorite places of residence.

PLYMOUTH Presenta great inducements for individuals seeking bealth

or pleasure. The Samoset House furnishes excellent aseom. modations ; then there are Plymouth Rock, Pilgrim Hall, and the graves of the Forefathers, calculated to asaken pleasant recollection. The numerous ponds in the vicinity of the village afford good fishing, and the beach and roads through the woods are delightful places for a drive.

ATTRACTIONS. An occasional ride in the cars as far as Braintree, will amply repay one for the trifling sum exacted for fare la passing through the village of Quincy, the venerated mansion of the elder Adams,” and afterwards the residence of the “Old Man Eloquent, can be seen.
