Smith, owner of the property known as the graveyard on Church and Pine Streets, wanted per¬ mission from the Board, which she thought was necessary, to dispose of nH)re of the property. The Board did not think they had any jurisdiction. This brought up the discussion of the ownership of the lot now occu¬ pied by the Engine Compatny, and the counsel to the Board was directed to take the necessary steps to clear up the title to this lot, which is now held by the village under a tax sale deed. John E. Finch, jr., applied for po¬ sition at the power house. There be¬ ing no vacancy at present, the appli¬ cation was filed. '1 nc applications of John S.

This was laid over for further discussion at a Fire Coun¬ cil meeting.

Naval Militia, 1st Division, 4th Battalion, Naval Training Base, No. Tarrytown, N. Y. August 20, 1917. My dear Mr. Pearsall:— I enclose list of names of Freeport boys who attended the dinner at Free- port last Saturday, as requested by you. The boys surely enjoyed it, and it will be a pleasant subject of dis¬ cussion in the camp for some time to come. This is a great, clear life, and I would encourage any young man to enlist. We are still enlisting boys; Harold E. Bedell of Freeport, arrived this morning, and others are coming. This makea about 200 men under the command of Lieut. George C. Colyer; (some showing for F'reeport, eh?) Freeport surely is to front with its local lie'itenant and some forty en¬ listed men. Lieut. Colyer surely makes an ideal comnianciing officer, and is liked not only by the boys in his own division, but by the members of the entire battalion, as was evi¬ denced by their presenting him with a gold shaving set last v/eek. Well, good-bye, for I must go to work, and when I am at leisure will write you at length. Peter Stephen Beck. P. S.—Will you be so kind as to send me a couple of copies of this week's Review for the boys ?

List of Freeport boys with New York Naval Militia, First Division, Fourth Battalion, at Naval Training Base, North Tarrytown, New York. There are some uiOO men in the 4th Battalion, which is composed of ten divisions.

There are also some men in the first division from New York City and villages on Long Island outside of Freeport. We also received the following let¬ ter from Sgt. Caaij/joII this we«k. The father of one of our enliste*l men re¬ cently told us he would be glad to let us have letters sent by his boy but was afraid we would have too many of these items. If the time comes when we get more of the.se than we can print in our regular edition we be¬ lieve they are of enough interest to most of us to promise that we will add extrj pages iis neoessai-y, but we can handle a lot of them in our regu¬ lar space.

Frank Roberta is our repreaentative ia Bellmore and'virinitr. All orders and newa left vith him will rceeire the aame careful attention as at our office. The work of dividing the hardware store and setting the fixtures for use of the Bellmore First National Bank are being rushed in order to have ev¬ erything in readiness for the opening on September 1.5. Bellmore has rap¬ idly increased in population during the past three years, and the need of a banking house has been felt for some time, .^t present this village is larger than were several of those adjoining when their first bank was started, and with all the territory be¬ tween Freeport and .Amityville to draw from, the prospects of this new institution seem bright. It is the in¬ tention of the officials to erect a bank¬ ing house as soon as the business war¬ rants it. John Wilkins of Fort Edwanl, N.

Saturday will be the closing evening, and a number of unusual attractions will be presented this night. An attractive sign has heen placed at the railroad station inscribed "Mer¬ rick Civic League" to hold notices of desired information for the village. The idea is fine and the location of the board good enough to inform those ; passing by train that we have such a I useful organization in our village, t but a better location could easily be , founti if the main object is to bring typewritten and written notices to ! the attention of the passerby in the [surest and easiest way. As now placed, the board seems only intended fo attract the attention of the users : of the 1.. I. R. R. and they must cross J the driveway from the north platform ,to get a near view of postecl matter. I Lieut.

The Merrick Home DefAise Corps has gained the following recruits since Augu.st 14: (Jeorge C. Mellen Harry A. Baldwin An important function of this or- ganii^ation is to furnish preliminary tr.iining to men who subsetiucntly in¬ ter the Fe<leral service, either by draft or voluntary enlistment. As soon as thej enter the Federal service they are honorably lischarged from the Home Defkiis*- Corps. Of the ninety- four men who have joined the Corps, four have receiv jd their discharge, leaving the present strength of the Corps ninety men. The Corps has now been arranged in permanent s<iuad8 of eight men each, "regular army style." This has been found to operate as an addition¬ al inducement to regular attendance at drill. .A spirit of friendly rivalry is developing, between the squads. The system also strengthens the bond ' of comradeship, so that an absent man not only hears from the captain, but frbm his fellows in his squad. I This calls fiOr eight explanations for one absence, and delincjuents do not find it so easy to "put it over."

If in uniforni, cov- I ered or uncovered, or in civilian clothes, uncovered, they shall salute I at the lirst note of the anthem, re¬ taining the jiosition of salute until the last note of the anthem. i If not in uniform, covered, they shall uncover at the rirst note of tho I anthem, holding the headdress oppo- |site the left-shoulder, and so remain until its close, except that in incleni- .ent weather the heacidress rnay be held I slightly raised. I When played by an army hand, the ' national anthem shall bc played j through without rejietition of any I part not reijuired to be repeated to 1 make it complete.
