broughtin grain. This square is still covered with fineprimeval forest trees, and has at its centre a hand-some soldiers monument of the Civil War, to whichfour paved walks converge. It is an altogether pleas-ant and unpretentious town, which cherishes with nosmall amount of pride its association with the nameof Thomas Alva Edison.
