Full text of "Massachusetts Year Book and City and Town Register"

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe. 

About Google Book Search 

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and to make it universally accessible and useful. Google Book Search helps readers 
discover the world's books while helping authors and publishers reach new audiences. You can search through the full text of this book on the web

POSTAL INFORMATION. 

General Directions. 

Direct your mail matter to a post oiBce, and 
if to a city, add the street and number of post 
ofBce box of the person addressed. If you are 
not certain that the place to which you wish 
to send is a post office, inquire of the post- 
master. Matter not addressed to a post office

post office is situated, and spell the name of 
the state in full. Write or print your name 
and address, and the contents if a package, upon 
the upper left-hand comer of all mail matter. 
This will insure its immediate return to you for

ciently paid, and if it is not called for at its 
destination, it can be returned to you without

script copy accompanying proof-sheets or cor- 
rected proof-sheets of the same), and all mat- 
ter sealed or otherwise closed against inspec-

TABLES OF AGGREGATES. 



Showing the Area, Number of Assessed Polls, Registered Voters, Valuation and Tax Rate of each 
Town and City in the Commonwealth . 

Few Questions are oftener asked than how many square miles has each town and city in the Com- 
monwealth. Strange to say, such data have never been accurately secured. The statements made here 
are gathered from various sources and are approximately correct. When the topographical survey of 
Massachusetts shall have been completed, then the list can be made up absolutely correct.

CITY AND TOWN OFFICERS. 

Explanation: — The towns are arranged in alphabetical order. Owing to the fact that ei^ alee- 
tions are held in December, just before the publication of this book, it is necessary for mechanical

found also in alphabetical order. 

Population figures are based on State Census of 1905. 

The presiding ofiicer in lists of Boards and Committees is designated by the letters '*(^" 
after the name. 

Unless otherwise mentioned the post office address of all parties is that of the town name itself. 

The various signs following names of villages are explained as follows: A, Post Office; 0, Tele- 
graph Station; D, Railroad Station; X, Express Office. 

Abbreviations for Express Companies are as foUows: Ad, Adams; Am, American; BL, Boston 
Local; E&P, Earle & Prew; N, National; NTB, New York & Boston.
