The receipt of a communication from Emma R. Campbell, secretary of the Women's Welcome Home Committee at Rocka¬ way Beach, is especially appreciated. She says: "Mr. Ensko was killed in an automobile accident last July, 1918, while in service abroad.' Mr. Ensko is also mourned at Rockaway Beach, where he attended school and lived for many years."

New charters will be issued to all American Legion Posts in the coun¬ try on November 11 by the National Committee who will meet at Minne¬ sota; all enrolling up to that time will be charter members. A letter was received from Mr. Pearsall, secretary of the W. C. C. S. offering their services to the Legion. The Legionaires expressed their ap¬ preciation of the good work done bv the W. C. C. S. The Post gave a rising vote of thanks to Harold E. Brown in appre¬ ciation of his endeavors as mostly through his work the Post has been organized. At the next meeting, which will be held at the W.

Our Postmistress,Mrs. Harry Leich, is about to 1,'ive up the post office ow¬ ing to her inability to secure help to care for her home properly. Mrs. Leich's philosophy is wholesome. If business interferes with the home, give up the business. However, we shall all miss Mrs. Leich. The ser¬ vice she has rendered the village has heen satisfactory in every way. It is proposed to re-establish the Men's Club of the Church of the Re¬ deemer which suspended its opera¬ tions during the war because of the varied outside interests demanding attention and the absence of some of its members in the army.

AROUND THE TOWN
(B. T. B. C.)
When I passed the comer of Smith Street and Long Beach Avenue and saw that bunch of men who were busy tearing down ihe brush that has ob¬ structed that comer for years, I was rather elated that one of my first items in that column miffht have had such good effect, but upon inquiry I find that Harry Van Riper has bought the corner and is to build houses there, and that is the reason, rather than any comment of mine, for the corner being cleared. Never mind, so long as the result is the same, and further auto accidents will be obviat¬ ed at this comer, which was a good place for picking up several news items during a summer seasc^i.
At the regular meeting of the Vil¬ lage Board Wednesday afternoon it was decided to place a lamp on Be¬ dell Street, between Smith and Ray¬ nor Streets.
Communications were received from the War Camp Community Service thanking the Board for its interest in the work during the time the Club House had been open, for the past two years; and from William H. Pat- . terson. Commander of the G. A. R. for the interest the Board had shown in the Welcome Home Day event, and their courtesy to the Po.st.
Increases in salary were granted to C. O. Niles and H. K. Rider, %o per month, and Street Commissioner M. F. Bond, $10.
Applications for sidewalks were granted to William J. Schumacher, Pine Street, and H. E. VanRiper, At¬ lantic and -©cean Avenues. Applica¬ tions for water service were granted to G. Patterson.
On request of Clarence A. Edwards, representative, it was decided to transfer the boiler infection and in¬ surance from the Hartford Company, in which it had been carried ever since the municipal plant was estab¬ lished, to the Travelers Company, which Mr. Edwards represented. A special representative of the latter company claims that their policy was more liberal than that of the Hart¬ ford Company.
