A treat s promised for the boys, aa those who ire acquainted with the doings cf thc ^cciety know what their praviou; vrork has bien during tiie war. The arrival of twins on a farm, north of Wantagh, last summer, was the cause f9r more canned fruit It allowed the thrifty farmer's wife four extra pounds of sugar per month and she was not s'ow to take the adva'i- tage of the allowance of her new off¬ springs. » The war garden of Wilson Pear¬ sall, of Lee Avenue, Rockville Centre, produced 40 bushels of field corn, the ears of which average 13 inchei in length and will shell a pound to an ear. "Mr. Pearsall states that he re¬ caived thc sefil directly frorti the Wcr.U, and if six acres would produc; propartionatcly as his little garden pot did he woald be paid war wages for his time tlie next six months to jome. A Freeport woman, whose husband is in the Y. M. C. A. work in Franca and two of her boys ih the army, tilled a war garden for the first time in her life. She rays it was not only a health restorer and nerve tonic, but a paying investment as well. She kept a-.i ac¬ curate acoount of the time spent in the little patch and the cost of seed Pettit Discus^ ABOUf iHE CHURCHES Nassau Ri»onns| (Brooklyn Times) (mv* fat thto echiaui ata wakmeaai from tha putor* ef churcbaa awl sacratarias «r othar aflkciala al church aaciatia*. Thaaa Iteoia, withia tha lianltaaf our tpaca, ap- plowing and other expenses and finds j municipality, we must frame a law William S. Pettit, chairman of tba Supervisors' Committee of Taxei, at the flrst meeting, he'd at the Court >?"• •*. ^'T^Ti*^- 11'^'!^ i?'."*'*^ *" House, outlined the foUowing sugges- ticns: "The woiTc that thia committee is called npon to perform ia of the great¬ est importance to tbe peop'e of Nas¬ sau County; and to tbe munic'pality aho. It cannot be solved hastily. There ia no municipality in America that has an entirely aatisfactory Tax Sales Law. "In my mind, the primary defect of our present law is the divesting of the tit'e of a property owner without mak¬ ing any attempt to give him actual no¬ tice of the fact that hia property has been sold for taxes. All the other evils, such as extortion.on the part of the purchasers, flow from this oni; Treat defect. The seco-.id defect in redemption is so -.hort that it encaur- :iges those wl|io have extortion in their hearts to buy. "In working out the prob'em, we must keep in mind that there are Lhree parties primarily affected, some¬ times four. First, the munlc pality. the second the owner, and third the investor or purchaser at the tax sale, and the fourth frequently the mort- ?agee. The municipality must ha.-; money to carry on the governmen'il 3xpanses. Its debts must be paid promptly. If the taxes are not paid, the municipality must borrow. It rep resents primarily the proparty owners who are delinquents, for they are thj ones who suffer by the delinquency of othars. Having in mind, first, the Memorial Association Started that she received the sum of 94 cents an hour for her services. Maine grown seed potatoes have al¬ ways been used by C. E. Schwarting, a large farmer of Wantagh. This year he ran short and being unable to secure more, flniahed up his planting with some of his own seed. He did not expect much, but was happily sur¬ prised when he found at digging time his own seed yielded more potatoes cf much better quality and color than the certified spuds from Maine. Another Wantagh farmer has dis¬ covered the process cf reducing the height of the ears on the stalks, and has succeeded in dropping the position of the ear about two feet He is D. H. Reinke and claims that with the ears nearer the ground on high stakes, which have their advantages on ac¬ count of the fodder, it is easier to har¬ vest and does not blow down. For several years Farmer Reinke has been using seed coiM from the West and .t was a gocd yie der, but the ears grew very high on the stalks. Last year he selected the ears that grew low and saved them for sead and it resulted in reducing^, the height. That sweet potatoes can be raised on the south slda of Long Island was demonitrated by Peter Elar, a Free- port policeman, this season. He plant- d 20 hills and the yied was two and one-half bushels. They are much larg- r in size a-.id cooked dryer than those he purchased at the stores, which were said to have been grown in the Caro¬ lina*. Memorial Serrice for Former Freeport Resident An unusual occurrence happened in Damiemora Prison last Sunday when •» memorial aervice was held for Peter Meyer. Eight lads from the outside town led the singing and not a dry aye could be found among the gather¬ ing. They spoke kindly of hia gent'e and thoughtful mannera and said he would never be forgotten there, or hia place ever filled. He died with his hand in the chaplain's, still profeaaing hia innocence and hia willingness to face his Maker, whom he had always trofted and believed in. Mr. Meyer had lived in Preeport for several years, was of exemplary hab¬ its, and no one wbo knew him believed him ffuilty of the charge on which he waa eent to prison on the •evidence of mUitary poliee. that will e'.iable it to collect in som^ Lutheran Services in this charch are held every Sunday at 10:30 a. m. and 7:45 p. m.

Three Get Awards At Farm School At the regular meeting of the Board of Tnwtee* of th* New York State ^hool af AgrieaHare at Farmingdale, ] 'he adiolara were summoried to the aa- tembly room, where thev were ad- ] Ireoaed by WlHiam M. Baldwin, treaa¬ arer of thi Board, who eompMmeoited *%em on the remarkable werk they are tnlng. and the progresa they have -TMde.

These awards are the per- icnal drifts of Mr. Ba'dwlti.

The school is offering exd'ent 1 nportnn't'es for young men and vri j -n«n dasiring pract'cal as wsU as tec'i way the taxes that delinquents havo I of Dickins, "The Christmas Carol," at either neglected, or refused to pay. — We must, therefore, devise a law that will enable the municipality to either sell the tax lien or to sell the tax cer¬ tificate at public sale. After it is sold and the county receives the money, the county is no longer primarily in¬ terested in the tax lien, or tax certifi¬ cate. It is, however, interested in the prompt payment of future taxes on the same property. Therefore, the law must make some provision for the payment of future taxes and penalties thereon on that property in order to prevent a delinqneney on 'the same property year after year. "Having studied the tax laws of practically every State in the Union, and most of the cities and counties, I have come to the conclusion that what may be a perfect Tax Sales Law n one community will be an utter fail- are in another community, due to the difference in the c'ass of proparty sold, in the assessed valuation and ac¬ tual value of the proparty sold, etc. The Lien Law is a succass in New Ycrk City. It appaars to be a failure ¦-1 other places where the community has many low-pricad lots. Whether we adopt the Lien Law or tha trans¬ fer cf the fee, in either event we jhonld extend the time of redemptioii 1 should say, to five years, with .» graduated penalty. A certain penal¬ ty at the end of one year, a second penalty at the end of two years, etc, a-.id at the tax sale the purchaser in¬ stead of purchaaing a fraction of the property, such as they do in Nassau County, a perfect absurdity upon its face, then caa bid to take the property or the lien at the least interest; that is, they will bid down the interest This is done now in New York on tho lien law. "It occur* to me that we might con¬ sider tbe preposition of the county be¬ coming one of the investors. There is IM reaaon why the Coanty itaelf ahould not be the purehaaer on the aame baaia aa an individaal. "There are other mattera to con¬ sider, auch aa re-advertiaing property that ia beugfat in by the County. Under our preaent tax law, we will ultinuktely have the namea and ad- d^saea of every property owner. This however, will take aeveral years to ae- compliah unlea* we have a apecial clerk wh* ia employed to do nothing elae but aoeertain the namea and ad dreasea of the property ownera. Such a c'erk might be attached to the Coan¬ ty Treasorer^a OlBce. Of conrae, we shoald aloe diacass the queation of having a Bureau of Aaaeaamenta and' /T"'* Arrears. Every tax bill that ia ren-'**^"*' dered shoald kave a statement on the front thereef that either that the proporty has been so'd for taxee or that there are arreara." the church Tuesday evening, Deeem ber 3.

Propositions as to the form of the memorial were presented and talked over informally, including a tahlet or memorial stone, a public library and a public hall, but it was agreed that no action shou'd be taken in a hurr>' and a committee of pan and scop? was appointed by the chair, to meet every Friday evening, at the Freeport Club, for farther consideration, ani when they have the matter in shape for further consideration a genera" meeting will be called, not later than January 15.

The permanent organization will b ¦ known as the World War Memoria! Association , of Freeport. There is truth in the statement in a city daily that "a plan was suggested, which met with the popular approval of those present, to erect a public lib rary to cost at least $50,000 as a me¬ morial to those who fell in the con¬ flict" It might be said there was some sentiment in favor of a library while others favored the monumert and a few a village community cen¬ tre. Neither was there any discubsion as to the amount to be raised, that be¬ ing left until details had been com¬ pleted OS to what should be furnished. The memorial whan erected will he iov all our residents in the service, with special tables or mention of those who died in the Service. Auxiliary meeta weekly in the Rectory at 2.30 P. M.

Goehler, Home Economics Demonstra¬ tion Agent, Mineo'a; $25 dollara waa contributed during the month. were called upon to work. A resigna tion and sickness reduced Po-itmaster Miller's forca of letter carriers to cne man. All of the young men physical¬ ly able to perform the duties of de¬ livering the mail were either in ser¬ vice or manufacturing munitions of war. So the postmaster called upon the young women and Miss Ada John¬ son and Miss Gladys Carman, high school girls, about 19, offered their services. After a week's test Post¬ master Miller dec'ares they have per¬ formed their duties more than satis¬ factorily. What is more, he has at least a dozen women applicanta and he will submit their names to the oth¬ er postmasters on Long Island who need carriers and clerks. Both Miss Johnson and Miss Car¬ man are rosy cheeky girla and were bora and brought up in the aouthem part of the village, known as the Neck. The healthy glow on their plump facea ia put there by Jack Froat and the tennia courta in the Summer and baaketball courta in the Winter have trained them aa hard aa naila and made them fit for their dutiea. They make two deliveriea a day and cover about 18 miles, both use bicy- clee and their pouches when leaving the aasorting room, including letters, weigh about 40 pounds. With the gray caps set jauntily on their heads they make a striking picture. One haa ths north route, which extenda to the reaidence of John Carl, and the other the aonth route, which goes to Bald¬ win Harbor, on the shores of Hemp¬ stead Bay. Both are delighted with the pay, which ia |60 per month to start and Postmaater MUler says that he has only one fear and that ia Capid. Their attractiveneas he i* afraid will captivate tha heart of aom* of th* retaining soldier boys.—Eagle.
