INVENTORY VOUR FURNITURE I I don't know how many times I have I written on this same subject, but it Iwill evidently bear frequent repeating. I Do you know what the firat thing your ' insurance company will ask of you il you have a fire? For the list of arti- jcles destroved. And you can only col- ] lect fnr such list as you can furnish — j which must be from memory unless you have prepared the list beforetime.

Th,' policies are i drawn 1 y the insurance companies to ! benefit them -not you—and give them every advantage in settling a loss. ; They have expert men making a busi¬ ness of just this thing, and you will never get one cent they can avoid pay¬ ing you. There may be exceptions - !l haven't found them. 1 . . _ ' REGARDING THAT PULMOTOR j The Naasau Post prints the follow- I ing item, which I presume they think i is funny, or cute : VILLAGE PULMOTOR I As a taxpayer of the village of Freeport deeply interested in its welfare, and the saving of human life, I am reijuest iriK you to put in your next budget the sum of $18.').00 for a pulmotor. Smith Pear .sail to the Freepori Vi'lage Bnard. Why not be generous, .Smith, and be our village pul¬ motor yourself? As a matter of fact, a pulmotor is, primarily to save lives, and as I have to confine my personal etforts to newa paper wnrk. I would have to beg to be excused from acting as a pulmotor, as i I believe that a newspaper which sidls ; for Ic-is than the cost nf production would he the first vicliin I'li which I W'lulil have to operate, and 1 have al¬ readv acli'd us [lulmotor to the full ex tent of my desires in that line. HOW SLANDER SPREADS All interesting comment on how easy il is to spreiid false reports or true is taken from the untrue statement in a Rockville (Jentre paper that at tbe fire on Main Street last inonth there was a I heavy ihiinage by water used by "over ! zeiilnus liremen." Altho they were | lolll that this was absolutely untrue, as noted in this column laat week,^ they made no elfnrt to correct the state- ' inent, which appeared ten days later, wi!id for word, in the Malvi'rnc Newa, ; printed, in the shii.e otlice, and last ; ' week in the HempsteHil Inquirer, due credit for the falsehood being given in the latter paper, to the paper from whicb it was taken. Verily "the truth can never overtake a lie once started. " but it might at least make an attempt to ilo so. SO.Mi: FIRE DEPARTMENT DIFFICULTIES During the coming year the Fire De¬ pHrtment bas several dillicult problems to handie. One of the most import¬ ant of these is the matter of transpor¬ tation of apparatus to lires. Several ^ limes hose companiea have been de- layed in answering alarms because of ; inability to get horses to convey tbe apparatus. In old times pulling by ¦ hand waa all right, when buildings were expected lo burn down anyhow, if they once got going,and much light¬ er apparatua was used than is now neceaaary. Thia has not been so seri ous. with four hose companies to answer, but the trouble has now reached the hook and ladder com- i pany, the only one in the village. Last ( Saturday morning an alarm was given for School No. 2 which Truck No. 1 I did not and could not answer, because they could not get horses lo pull the truck. Suppose there had been a fire tbere and the second floor full of chil¬ dren. The Truck Company has been fortu¬ nate in having for many years a team of horses belonging to H. C. Schluter whenever fhey wanted them, hut Mr. Schluter finds he cannot afford to take hia horaea from regular work during business hours, and has notified the coinpany that he will not take the truck out any more during the ilay time, and iast Suturday h-) felt justille 1 in refut¬ ing to take the horaea fmm theii regu¬ lar work in hia rush hours, and otht'i' neighboiing tradespeople also refuaed to allow the u?e of their horaea while busy with deliveries. Fortunately, there was no fire, but it would have been juat the same If •there had been several fires—the'Iruck cnuld not have reached ihein. The matter mi:st be taken up by the fire men and reouest made to the Viilage Board withou'. delay. When the de¬ partment mat-:. ? this request thn re¬ sponsibility is then up to the Bnard, and they can oniy pass it on be making recommendations to the people and giving them the chance to decide whether conditions ,sball be properly remedied. tars of intaraat to and about tha firaman in our local dapartmant by H.E.

THEY'RE OFF 1 Last week we noted where Sea ClifT had had no fires in nearly iwo years. Wednesdav night. March 11, thev had a fire. These new telephone slol machines may be a fine thing fnr the Company, but where yon have got to put a nickel or more in the nlot before yuu can even get Central, and the telephone in Free purl is nur only Die alarm system, peo¬ ple should go slow iibiiiil installing tbem. A nmn called out of bed for in¬ stance is not apt to stop to put change in his pocket to operate a slot macliine to send in additional alarms, recalls, liolice calls or anything else (we might include that as a part of our equipment on our apparatuj) iiinl tlu' hnuaeholder even, if awakened by " 'ire, might not find it convenient to hunt up a nickel ' to send in a fire alarm. Truck I '"as unahl(! to answer the call early Thursday morning, this time on account of bulky hor.'^es. In the last three riills this company has been held up twill' hy balky hnises and nnce by no b'ii-.-:i s arriving. At the Realty Huilding lire, when bidders were needed most, the horses held up srveral iriiii- Utt'H just outside the dniir. At the call last Saturday morning, they Uid nol leave the house, no horses being available, and Thursilay mnrning tbey were atill standing in front of the hcuse with balky li ^rses when the re¬ call blew. II is quite |iroliiible that tbe company will ciri'iihite a rail for a special election t': purclmsr a Irarlor for their apparatus, the proposition having been coiisidereii pieviniia to the tegular election but nnt being Kubmilti'd owing lo the possible jeopardizing of the Hoae I p'oiio.'-ition. The regular meeting of the Fire Council was held at the engine house Wednesday evening, with the follow¬ ing members present: ('hiefa Loon¬ am, Pearaall and Smith. Wardens Whaley of Hose 1, Starr ami White of Hose 2, Comb-, and Patrick of Hose 3, .Sumner and P'ritz nf Hose 4, (!onniir and Rice of Kngine 1 and Bo¬ liind and Niles of Truck L At tbe opening of the meeting Chief loonam said that on behalf of the peo¬ ple of Freeport, and especially the ten¬ ants of the Realty Building, he wished to thank the firemtn for the hard and I'onscienlinui work they were doing, and that he wished each foriinan pres- i'nt to so report at his next meeting. The following new members were spproved: Angele Preziosi, Hoae 1; Gilbert Thompaon, Ho.'-e '2; William Padgett, Moae 2, aubject to approval of guardian. Exemption papers were granted to Daniel (barman of Hoae 3. The reaigiiMlioii of Arthur (Jilder- sleeve from Hoi-e 3 was ajiproved. Firat Asat. Chief reported tht' re¬ ceipt of a sniall order for coats, boots, gloves, etc., and be was instructed to procure a stencil for marking the aame. The matter of bells on the front of ¦ ull houses as on Truck 1 wua diacusaed, and it ia probable that at the next nueting of thi- L'ouncil some action will be taken to aecure same. A great deal of time was given to tbe discussion of general department mutters and much good will probably accrue from some of the augi^estiuna made. The (.'nurici! was unnnimously of thi' opinion that particular attt ntion shijulii be paid at lirea to the few men who secure rubner boots, coats and helmet^ and stand at a safe distanca iiway and walcb tlu: iien niil si for¬ tunate do the work. The foremen were assured they would have tbe sup¬ port of the Council in any action they might take, within their by-laws. Treaaurer White reported that over $300 had been collected from the two per cent, insurance tax during the past yeur, mainly througii the unceasing work of Secretary Niles. The collec¬ tion for tha. two years previoua had been tlWitor the two years so that in one year it had he-itn increased over $100, and much'larger retiirns were expected next year, nf the insurance compai.it-< iio,v knew they were beihg cloirly w-'.ched.and any infringementJa ^^Continiieii on pa||;n 8)
