Miss Alice Bennett, M. D., a native of Wrentham, Mass., is the physician in charge of the women's department of the State Insane Hospital at Norristown, Penn. She has or had I believe this year nearly 800 patients under her care. She is supreme in her department, and employs her own assistants, between eighty and ninety in number; she has lately been elected president of the Montgomery county medical society. Dr. Bennett was the first woman to be appointed to the independent direction of an insane hospital, for, while both the men's and women's departments at Norristown are managed by the same board of trustees, the medical superintendence of each is totally distinct; and she has held the place ten years with noteworthy success in administration and in treatment, becoming a recognized authority in alienism. She was also, we believe, indirectly the cause of the opening of the Massachusetts medical society to women, through her visit to Boston some years ago as delegate from Pennsylvania. And now she is the first woman to be elected president of a medical society composed almost entirely of men. But Montgomery county is famous for the liberal and enlightened character of the profession, which is largely owing to the precept and example of the venerable Dr. Hiram Corson, whose indefatigable efforts in behalf of progress in the treatment of the insane have been of so great importance.

Thomas (Nock) Knox of Dover, N. H., in 1652, and some of his descendants. Compiled by Doctor William B. Lapham of Augusta. Privately printed. Augusta. Press of the Maine Farmer, 1890.

This pamphlet of 34 pages contains some account of this Knox family and the allied family of Sherburn. A few of these families have been in the Eastern part of the State: Bangor, Old Town, Orland and Bucksport.

Joshua

Hathaway of Passadumkeag, gives his son Justus Hathaway his time Dec. 8, 1828. (He was born Nov. 28, 1808, and has been a lumberman ever since 1828, 62 years.)—Bangor Register.

LIME.-James Tolman will sell new lime (burnt in Bangor) as low as can be obtained in town, March 24, 1828.—Bangor Register.

Doctor Charles T. Bean died in Chelsea, Mass., Nov. 24, 1890. He was born in Corinth, 1823, and was the son of Thomas and Eliza (Hammond) Bean. (His mother was daughter of William and Susannah (Campbell) Hammond. She was born in Bangor, on the spot where now stands the block in which is the store of Ara Warren.)

Dr. Bean lived in Bangor, Warren, and removed to Chelsea about 1865. He was an Assistant Surgeon in the 7th Maine Regiment, and Lieutenant-Colonel of the 24th Maine Regiment in the War of the Rebellion. He was much interested in historical matters and was a subscriber to this MAGAZINE.

Warren Ware, of Orrington, mortgaged to Lemuel Shaw, of Boston, for $366 lot he bought of Benjamin Snow July 19, 1806 (Hancock Vol. 2, page 211) 100 acres and lot he bought of Elisha Robinson July 29, 1811, in 1815.

Orono, Nov. 10, 1827 Samuel Veazie, Benjamin Fiske and William S. Bridge advertised for the first meeting of persons named in act to incorporate the proprietors of Old Town bridge, at Ira Wadleigh's tavern in Orono, Old Town, Dec. 2, 1827.-Bangor Regisier.

“Here Lyes The Body of Mr. Samuel Cushing of Settueat, Who Died May The 170, 1770, In The 25th Year of His Age.”—Inscription on old grave stone in old Orland burying ground.

Died in Orland, Feb., 1817, Mrs. Mary, wife of John Hancock, formerly of Boston, aged 78.

Married in Frankfort, Sept. 12, 1793, Aaron Walker to Betsey Knowles.-Seth Noble's Diary.

In Mr. John Fiske's text book, "Civil Government in the United States," designed for the public schools, page 217, he writes of a “Republican Legislature" in 1812. The average scholar of to-day would be confused by that statement. In the whirligig of time those Republicans are now Democrats.
