There was a big parade of the firemen, business men and po¬ liee with the flremen, brass band and Boy Scouta. Sacb cheering and as the trains palled ont they all saluted with guns, and today (Aecoration Day) there was a big parade with lovely Red Cross floata, soldiery sail¬ ors, ete., and they ha<re more than doubled their qaotoen the Ked Cross week. Now really the world isnt so very large after all! To oar surprise one day two weeks ago, while in Saranac -^1 The Rt. Rev. Frederick Burgess.

B, Ferry Ce. a^. _^^ , Ferry Conipany Opens To Long Beach The Great South Bay Ferry Co. had a successful day Sunday for its thru service to Long Beach. The new time-table showing the through boats, printed in this paper, will continue throughout the Sam¬ mer. Another change for the people has been the installation of a boat leav¬ ing Baldwin Harbor dock in front of the old hotel at 9:45 a. m. and 4:16 p. m., beginning on the 8th 0/ June and running daily thereafter. The big double deck boata, the Salem, Sea ,Witeh and Sea Gull, have all been overhauled and re-painted. The sail from Baldwin to Long; Beach includes stopping at Freeport, Sea Edge, Point Lookout. Nasaao-by- the-Sea and Long Beach. The aail is just one hour long and the retaro boat from Long Beach parmifa peo¬ ple to spend the day at Long Beach with a nice restful sail at the end ef the day. Sunday the Company carried ever 800 passengers to Point Logout and about 60 to Long Beaeh, The surf bathing was excellent and the beaches were the only cool spots on Long Island that day. The big double-deck Salem has had some alterations made in ita engine and now makes the trip from Free- port to Point Lookout in sixteen min¬ utes, although the schedule calls for one-half hour service. The boats have all been inspected by the U. S. Government inspectors and although there is no need at aag time for life preservers, as the boat makes the trip wholly on the insids, yet under the U. S. Govemment role, the Company carries one life preserv¬ er to each passenger, and limits tbs boat to 176 passengers while it has a capacity of 200. Many people fail to realize that there is but five or six feet of water throughout the whole bay, and that at low tide in many places, even in the channel, the boato touch bottom, showing the impossi¬ bility ef any kind of disaster, j The Ferry C-o. has opened its tele- A oOO and euchre for tJie benefit of phone service, at ite dock, which num- the Red Cross will be given by Miss kgr is Freeport 773, and at any time R.
