Auto Accidents Last Friday afternoon while Frank Willets with his wife and their two children, in their auto, were crossing Porterfield Place at Madison Avenue, the rear end of their car was struck by the Keogh auto, driven by Mr. Kisogh's young son. The car was tamed completely around and Mrs. Willets and the two children thrown out. Mrs. Willets' collar bone was broken and a rib fractured; the daugh¬ ter, Elizabeth, was badly cut, and the son, John, received some cuts but not! had a display which attracted special serious.

Smith gi^esented a hand¬ some Service Flag to the Fire De¬ partment, which was accepted by Archer B. Wallace on behalf of the Department. Block Dance in the Evening In the evening the threatened rain of the morning Degan to come down, but did not prevent a crowd at the block dance which completely filled up the street and the dance was enjoyed by large numbers of the soldiers and thejr Iftdy friends, music being furn¬ ished by the band used in the parade. W. C. C. S. "Returns" Coffee Urn About 9:00 o'clock space was cleared for admission of a local W. C. C. S. auto containing a handsome ten gal¬ lon coffee urn. When the war first started two years ago, Chief Randall loaned to the Community Service work the coffee um presented to the department by the former chaplain, Charles Herbert Scholey. They made a reservation that it might be called for when needed, but have gone with¬ out it and left it for use for the sol¬ diers and sailors where over a quarter of a million cups of coff«te have been served from it in the two years since. The Club did not use all the budget allotted to it for its work, none of the "directors" drawing any salary, an^ it seemed fair to ,|ii8e part of availa- bTe funds for a new um to replace the one loaned, rather than to give back the one so worn out that it has been in repair several times. Ac¬ cordingly the um "retumed" is an up-to-the-minute coffee cooker with a connection for gas heating. It was retumed by Major Holland in a short address ot thanks, in which he spoke of the cordial feeling existing between the Fire Department and the W. C. C. S. workers. Chief Williams accepted for the Department and e«iled for three cheers for the "SoWiera' Club." Sokfiers' Ouh Continues to Entertain The Labor Day Welcome Home Day holiday was a misy time for the Sol- 4i»ra and Sailors Clnb on Church Street. Saturday night home-made cake and coffee were nim ished to about 200 visitors, with nraaic for dancing. Sun¬ day evening was more quiet ^nd we had plenty of home-made cake and coffee. Monday, plans were made for tlie big part to be taken in tbe parade by the Club, and the girls began to ap¬ pear abont nine o'clock in tlie morn¬ ing, to prepare. Mrs. Hartmann kindly took care of the refreshments for the day, and was assisted by Mys. F. A. Nlyrick and Mrs. Story, to whom the Canteen Com¬ mittee is jgreatly indebted for giving up their day of pleasure, and contin¬ uing the work for the cause. At noon, and continuing until well in the after¬ noon, hiun sandwiches, baked beans, coffee and fruit were furnished to all, including the iiand, and a nnmber of -workers who did not have time to get home for lunch, and again at 6:00 o'clock, supper waa prepared.

(Contiasad ea Pkc* S) AROUND THE TOWN (B. T. b: c.) Last week I spoke about the rail¬ road company fixing up around the de¬ pot. Let us put it this way. If you had the railroad business, and were getting all the trade without opposi¬ tion, and the depot was so you could house your ticket office—it is a little better than that—and the grounds were' silch that people could get to the depot—and they are a bit oetter than that—and you were getting hit on every hand, for increased wages, higher cost of material, higher cost of supplies, and then getting kickt worse when you talkt about raising fares to meet the increase, would you feel in the humor to spend money for im¬ provements you could get along with¬ out. Honest, would you? The point is just this. If we want the roads fixt around the depot it is up to us to do the fixing. The chap that knockt down part of the fence on the northwest corner ot Merrick Road and Ocean Avenue had the right idea, although he went at it in a bad way, jumping* a front curb and knocking it down with hi3 auto fender—arid he didn't make a very good job either—he shoiild have ftn- isht it while he was at it. As it is or was it is a dangerous corner for autos crossing the Merrick Road on Ocean Avenue, the fence being so high—or the road so low—that an auto on one street cannot be seen from the other. I am not a crank on the boote ques¬ tion, but putting right to a. dollars and cents question, which seems to ap¬ peal to most of us. I have not yet seen an argument anywhere that would convince me tjiat we would be any worse off when it is absolutely impos¬ sible to get a drink of the fool-making stuff. This is not to preach a sermon, or to emphasize hiy statement regard¬ ing the results of the drink, because we all know them, although we are hopeful that our children of the next generation will not. We just started to speak of the improvements at the old Benson House, which is now occu¬ pied, quite appropriately, as a gro¬ cery and a clothing store, having been remedeled for that purpose. Consid¬ ering the soarcity of buildings in the business section of the village it is a safe proposition that the stores will not remain vacant for any length of time, and while the hotel which pre¬ ceded these stores was run as good aa hotels usually are, it is also safe to sav that the result of argument from sale of goods will not get into the po¬ lice court as they did before as a nat¬ ural result of the use of the liquor. And that leads me to the thought regarding;- smoking. I read an adver¬ tisement in one of the city papers the other night of a man who was asking the beoze fiends and friends to vote for him to offset the action of the 'W. C. T. U. in endeavoring to do away with smoking, and, he argues, u^Uf- mately. with tea and coffee. The point is far fetched, and while sontfr may argue that a few years ago the propo¬ sition to make the sale of liquor illeg¬ al was laughed at, it is admitted even by those who used it that it would be a good thing it it were not •*)'d. The argument as to the result of the use of liquor cannot be applied to smok¬ ing, any more than eating candy, be¬ ing injurious to the persons only who use them, and when used to excess, and their use will never be prohibited, exc>epting under special conditions. As a matter of fact, smoking is not good for children, and should be reg¬ ulated, but beyond that it never will go. Blaal* eeiptaj ot tka Marf-rm tot aaia at 8. Eacluw'ii ami BraHbwaHa'f.
