A tall and shapely elm tree was removed in High street i front of the residence of Dr. Daniel Hennesey on Thursday, the tree having been killed, as have others in the immediate vicinity. by reason of a leak in the gas main. A fine tree at the residence of James F. Singleton next Adjoining waa removed last year, and other trees in the triangular lot in front of the Hammond street church on the opposite aide of the street have been destroyed from the same cause and removed. Bangor's shade trees, and especially the stately elm which have made the city famous for many decades, are a great asset, in making the city atti active, and residents part with regret from trees which have attained good pioportions and acquired age.
