A glowing sky in the southeast*corner of the village lighted the way for the firemen on a long run to 339 South Main Street. The blaze started in the one story resi¬ dence of Wm. Harvey Smith, and when the firemen reached their destination this building was nearly burned down and the two-story "sail-loft" of Hiram R. Smith, occupied by Walter R. Smith and Geo. O. Baker was well on fire. By hard work this building was prevented from burning down, after the roof was destroyed. The cause of the fire is a mystery as Harvey left home at noon, and returned at midnight to be driven out by the smoke, after destroying his overcoat in a vain en¬ deavor to put out the fire he found burning. He avers he left no fire of any kind in the building. The loss will he about $800. There was in¬ surance only on the sail loft building.

The Village Board of 1904 advertised for bids for maji, etc, and on July 29th., 1904 the contract vvas awarded W. Darling of Amityville, N. Y., who was the lowest liiilder in the amount of $400 and vvho was given one year in which to complete the contract. He later re(iuested more lime which was granted. After numerous requests by the Village Board of Mr. Darling to complete the maji, it was jilaced in the hands of Counsellor Leo P'ishel, who found that .Mr. Darling would not jiro¬ ceed with the contract, and it was then taken out of his hands, all of which caused considerable delay, and later given to Mr. Alvin G. Smith, of Free- port, N. Y., who now has the map complete and is numbering the houses. The street signs have been jiut up, and I believe that the certain pieces of sidewalk that were objectionable at the time the insjiector was making the inspection have been jiut in good condi¬ tion. As soon as the numbering is finished I will again make application to the Post Office Department for another inspection. Very respectfully. Robert G. Ander.son. P. M.
