PIRE PROTECTION ON MAIN STREET. In the fire department column last week. t!bere was an item written by an active officer of the flre department, \ Association, Chief Engineer Bernard regarding fire protection on Main St. j Loonam hss appointed the following It is no wonder that we are charged i committee to complete arrangements Freeport Rremen in New Tork By direction of tbe Fire Council, which accepted the invitation to par- ticipate in the great firemen's parade in New York, on Friday, September 5, in connection with the annual conven¬ tion of the International Fire Chiefs' Wbich mentioned in this article, or the one running throngh Freeport? GIVING THE RAILROADS FITS. Wherever a railroad truns broagh a town—and where in thia fair land will you find a town not ao bleaaed?—there you will flnd a flre department that would like to chop off the beads of as¬ sorted railroad men, ranging in rank from brakemen to division Superin¬ tendents.

The records show that under 'present methods indigent families con tinue indefinitely, in many cases throagh succeeding generations, under town support, supplemented by private charity. The Neighborhood Workers of Free- port has been organized to prevent these defects, by establishing and car- riying on a system of permanently im¬ proving conditions among the poor by family rehabilitation—a method which has been thoroughly tried and tested in other localities with fiiarked suc¬ cess.

Agvastlawent, To have Freeport properly repre¬ sented in the great Firemen's Parade in New York City on September 5, 1918, before the millions of persons who will view it, would be one of the very beat means of advertising this village. To defray the expenaes of our de¬ partment in ao doing, the undersigned gladly contribute in cash or check herewith the sums set opposite their names. It is understood that the amounta contribated are to be publiahed in local papers." Here ia my old hobby again: At the fire in Rockville Centre Qn Sunday, Auguat, 8 the man on duty at the power house there is reported to have refiiaed to blow the alarm, until he had been told over the telephone by aome one he knew, and when he finally did blow it, got it wrong. Thia is not a caae of suppose it bad been a serious fire, and tbe apparatua- sent some where else—thia WAS a aerioua fire as it stood, and if the smoke had not been plainly visible from all ovar tha vil¬ lage, the firemen might hava lost aev¬ eral valuable minutea. Whila we can hardly imagine our power house men refusing to blow the alarm with¬ out inveatigating, we can eaaily con er, to succeed Walter C. Rhodes. President Hunt has appointed the following committees: Finance, Hunt, Baker, Sammons. Teachers and courses of study. Post, Sammons, Hunt. . Supplies, Sammons, Baker, Hunt. Buildings, and^ grounds, Cozzens, Post, Hunt. Rules and Regulations, Baker, Coz¬ zens, Hunt. The Board will meet the second Tuesday of each month. It is expected to take up the matter of additional school room early next week, aa soon as necessary options on property, and other details, can be ar¬ ranged. The Canoe Was Empty Monday evening the Snmmer colony at Point Lookout became quite excited over a small boat which had been first sighted about a mile off the beach, and in which those who flrst saw it claimed a man was seated. Before the life savers were notified, the boat had drifted about two miles off shore, and had been nearly loat from aight in the faat approaching darkneaa. The crew pnt off in their lifeboat, and eheer- A GOOD-WORK. The organization of the Neighbor¬ hood Workers of Freeport was a step in the right direction, in the interest of the poor in our community. Its officers are ladies who are well qualf- fied for the work in which they are engaged, and they are very much in earnest in their endeavor to bring or¬ der out of the chaos, which has existed in the question of attending to chari¬ table work in our village. It has been a matter of regret to those who have undertaken any of this work, that there was no head to it, and that people were receiving donations, because of sympathy, and ill directed efl'orts, when it would have been belter if no such donations had been made, and other cases where people were in need of help and nothing was given them because of their condition not being known and understood. fully made the four mile row, almost ceive of the apparatua being sent in ! disappearing from sight of thoae on the wrong direction, throagh varioas reasons, for it HAS BEEN done, not once but several times.

When they arrived at the beach they Were coolly told by a spcetator that the canoe waa no good and had been thrown in the ocean from Nasaan-by- the-Sea that afteraoon, but nothing had been aaid of thie till the men re¬ turned from the row.- Coming Events Aug. 18 ta 16—Annnal craiae.

(Goatinuad on voga 6) THE ADDITION TO FIRE ALARM SYSTEM. The question is raised as to the prac¬ ticability of the addition to the fire alarm system ; the gong on the Truck House. This is entirely practical, and if the Village Board would pass an ordinance making it a misdemeanor to ask for fire call number, 400, except¬ ing to send in a fire alarm, which.they can do, and punish a person using this call the same as a i^>rson sending in a false alarm through a fire box, there would be no further trouble. These remarks do not apply to the case that happened Monday night, when no notice had been given of the a^ition, but the Village Board can and probably will take the necessary ateps to prevent repetition. TELEPHONE ETIQUETTE. Calling on an acquaintance the other morning, the telephone bell rang, and my friend, aa he took up the receiver and listened, scowled. I could see that something didn't please him. "Who am 1?" I heard him say, and then he added: "Look here, if you rang a man's door bell would you, when he came to the door, ask him who he was? Oh, you wanted 5806 Harrison?—Well, you have rang the wrong door bell. Good bye."—System. REPORTING A BALL GAME. The following is quoted from the comic column of the baseball section of tbe N. Y. American, referring to Herring, a former pitcher on the Frea¬ port team, who is being tried out by the St. Louis Americana: 'Henry Mockler, the New York rep¬ resentative of the Poat-Diapatch of St. Louia, was hit on the left arm with a ball thrown by Herring, a rookie pitch¬ er of tbe Browns. After making sure that no b<Snes were broken, Mr. Mock¬ ler wired to St. Louis that Herring needed the hook." A GOOD ADVERTISING MEDIUM. 1. W. Miller says the Review is evi¬ dently a good advertising la^iom. Last week Mr. Miller found a white kid purse with $7.08 in it, which he advertised in the Review. Mrs. G. S. Monk of Garden City gave a correct description of tbe parse and its con¬ tents and it waa returaad to her by Mr. Miller. ness Men's Aasociation. Mr. Rice reported that the Associa¬ tion he represented favored the fire de¬ partment psrticipating in the parade if for no other reason than that it woald advertise Freeport as an up>t9- date community; that the parading of such a finely equipped de^rtment be¬ fore tbe hundreds of thousands of spec¬ tators in the city that day would do more to bring permanent residents to Freeport than anything thnt has ever been done to exploit the advantages of this ideal village. He also reported $27 in cash turned in, and $100 more promised, loward meeting the expense uf sending thc department and appar¬ atus lo New York and return that day. Chief Leonam gave consent to the committee to take whatever apparatus of thc department they desired to muke a reputable showing of the depatment.' Aft.r a lengthy discussion lhe com¬ mitee decidt'd that if suffici'nt sub¬ scriptions could be secured from the merchants, real estatt' agents and other rejident.-i to make the evenl the suc¬ cess it should bf, to take the Nott steumcr, truck, four hose wagons; alao, for the purpose of comparison in showing the p;rowlh of the department, to place in the line of parade the first hook and ladder used in the village in 1874 and the tirat hose reel used in the village in 1894 ; also arranged with the Chief to s«e that the village is amply protected with extra ajiparatus and hose while the other apjiaralus is in the city. The line-up of the department for the parade will be as follows: Firemen bearing American flag Silk Banner of Department Chief and Assistant Engineers Chaplain and Surgeon Tucker's Military Band Ex-Chief Engineera Committee .Members of Department Truck 1 Engine 1 Hose 1 Hose^ Hose 3 Hose 4 Apparatus 1874 Track 1894 Hose Reel Steamer Chemical Engine Truck 4 Hose Wagons The 1«74 truck and the 1894 hose reel carriage will bear suitable signs indicating when they were in use. A method of advertising specially the village of Freeport along the line of march was discussed, and will Be further considered at the next meeting.

New Fire Gong Installed Acting upon the reqoaat of the Pire Council, the Village Board haa had in¬ stalled a gong at the track hooae, to expedite anawering flre alarms. The gong is connected with the tele¬ phone at the Powar House ao that when anyone calla up No 400, which ia intended to ba uaod only for flret, the gong at the track houae will ring, and the firemen can answer much quicker, when the tima will be of value. The system was completed Monday and Monday night the telephone serv¬ ice being out of order to the Powor Houae, one of the policemen ealled np No. 400. at U6 a. m.. and the gong at the track house rang, with the re¬ sult that the residents of the neighbor- . hood, nearly all of whom are firemen. Were out of theii* beda in a hurry, and the horaea were pot in harness ready to answer the call, when an investiga¬ tion was made and it was foond that the call hsd been used for sending a complaint to thc Power House regard¬ ing lighta, and had nothing to do with. any fire.

A number of oar citizena have been quietly interesting themaelvea in an en¬ deavor to improve conditions at the railroad depot: from a saniury stand¬ point. There is a cloaet coonectod with the depot bat it is kept locked and the key is "witli the agent," and when the igent is away the closet is unavailable, and there is an apparent¬ ly natural inclination to uae the sob- way connecting the two tracka, Thc citizens have appealed to the railway officials and to the police and several have boen arrested and fined, but it seemo i»t>o"i>hle to elear up the con¬ ditions until some better plans are 4nade for availing of the use of the closet at the depot or the viilage de¬ cides to provide a proper place in that vicinity.
