The Fire Company is in earnest about the purchase of land in a con¬ veniently located spot, preferably on Bedford Ave., or on Grand Ave. west of Russell's house, which, by purchasing now, they can get much cheaper than in some years to come. As Bellmore grows, more residences and stores will be established here, giving land values an increase which will prevent the purchase by the fir<? company of as much land as they con¬ template at present, from 75 to 100 feet frontage. The southeast corner of Bedford Ave. and Wilson Ave., presents an ideal site, being on a cor¬ ner which will give the firemen easy access to all parts of the village. We understand this will be looked intf further and a report made by a com¬ mittee.

This is usually called a season of "peace on earth and good will toi man," but it seems to me as though the central thought of the unselfish life of the Nazarene is lost sight of in the multiplicity of diversions that Jire supplied. It is doubtless safe to say, that sel¬ fishness causes more unhappiness and misery in the world than any other one thing and if this season of Christmas could arouse in the in¬ dividual mind a realization of the absolute unselfishness of Him whose make the world a better place to live in by alleviating misery and suffer ing and thc causes therefor as far as possible. If less time were spent in discussion and disagreement be¬ tween the different sects as to the merits of one over the other and the efforts of all were united in tlie pro¬ mulgation of good, the world woufd be better for it, as thosie who are seeking the good are so often divid¬ ed, while the forces of evil seem ever united. To my mind, those of us truly ob¬ serve Christmas who (bear in mind the idea that it is a season of thanks¬ giving for the birth of One whose life was one continual example of un¬ selfishness, fidelity to truth and love fnr His fellowmen, and this season should stimulate our efforts to emu¬ late that Blessed Example. New Year's Eve Dance in Smith¬ ville South The members of the "Double Ess" Fire Company in .Smithville South will throw open the doors of their commodious building there New Year's Eve and prepare to entertain their friends with one of thc biggest dance events of thc season. .An ex¬ cellent orchesra has been engageii, there will be noise making and other kinds of souvenirs for the ladies, i supper ami within a tine building just right for such a high class af- lair as this will be. There are rto objectionable features tn the dances run by this company. No smoking ill the building and a style that is generally distinctive. The ticket sale is limited and the charge for evcr\- thing including supper, wararot)- check and dancing is fifty cents cach. From the number of tickets already sold the success of the affair Is prac¬ tically assured. .A feature of the af¬ fair is the march at ten minutes to twelve when the souvenirs will be distributed and promptly at midnight the noise will commence which will welcome 1910 to that part of Nassau County. After this is over supper will be served, to be followed by dancing until a late hour. Pettit, Nassau Ave ols, Church St. Mrs. J. F. Kenney, Dean St., ap¬ plied for electric light. Granted! Application of Mary S. Gilbert, Por¬ terfield PI., for electric light was re¬ ferred to committee with power. President Morrison reported (as a committee) entering into an agree¬ ment between the village and the Ex¬ celsior Hook and Ladder Co. rela¬ tive to paying for janitor service and making necessary repairs to said Ex¬ celsior Hook and Ladder Co.'s hous? in the same manner and under the same conditions as all other fire houses in the village. The village is to have the use of the truck house for all general or special electibns per¬ taining to village government, with¬ out any compensation therefor. Owing to its being freezing weath¬ er the adjustment of the sidewalk matter affecting the Harms property is laid over until the weather is more moderate. Trustee Bedell offered resolution to the effect that the village treasur¬ er, be and he is Jiereby directed to pay on the first day of January, iQjo, the sum of $700.76. interest coming 'cue on such date on Electric Ligh. Ponds, from the light fund. Also to pay on the first day of January, 1910, the sum of $t,6i2.5<> interest coming dne on such date on water bonds, from the water fund. Also to pay on the first day of January, 1910, the sum of $100. interest coming due on such date on Fire Department bonds, from the interest fund. Trustee Ellison seconded the above which was car¬ ried, a'so thc transferring of ^5 from the tax arrears fund to the street grade fund. anrl I c' w'inh '"^^ will be held in various sections of the town, half of them simultaneously on Tuesday night, Dec. 28, and as many more Tuesday night, Jan. 4, in preparation for the large gatherings in the choruses later. In addition a meet¬ ing for united prayer is being held Thursday of this week in the Baptist Church. Preliminary men's meetings have also been asked for on the after¬ noons of December 26th and January 2nd. The various committees, too,,are hard at work. The first opportunity for the manifestation of real enthus¬ iasm waa no disappointment and oc¬ curred Sunday evening, when the mem¬ bers of the conjugations carae to¬ gether after service in the Methodist Church for a preliminary song service. The people, even at that late hour, fill- " ed the large audience room and enters with evident delight into acquaintances with the inspiring new gospel songa in Dr. Chapman's widely renowned book, •'Winona Hymns.'' Five hundred of these volumes have been secured and evidently will be none too many. The music will be led by a large chorus which will number over 100 volunteers. Platforms to accommodate them will be built in the churches, where the meet¬ ings are to be held, and no pains nor money spared to render every detail of the services as pleasant and helpful as possible. The next aong service will be heM in the Presbyterian Church Sunday evening, January 2, at 8-.SO o'clock, and a private rehearaal of the large choir at the same piace Wednes¬ day eveniug, January 6to. juat before the (^lening meeting of the series. Pleasant commeAt is frequently h«ud on the breath of view that excludes ob¬ noxious sectarianism or proaelytism from these services and enables the largest aection of our churches to en¬ gage in a united effort to |»XMnote the caose of rif^teoosness.
