UNCLE JOE DOWLING Veteran of Southern New York Fire¬ men's Association, Official at Labor Day Events.
Through the athletic ability of Marcheon Farmlet and Edward Mea¬ ney, Truck No, 1 came within one point of wrestling the athletic laurels trom Patriot Hose Company No. 4 In the annual track and fleld events on Olive boulevard Labor Day. Farm- let scored 19 and Meaney 12 of thc 36 points made by Truck No. 1. Pa¬ triot Hose has won the point trophy with remarkable ease the last four yej^rs. John Meaney and Elmer John¬ son were the point winners for the Patriot Hose.
In the horse hose contest Hose No. 1 won the blue ribbon for hitching, driving a quarter mile, uncoupling and coupling, shooting a stream of water on a backstop in l minute 19 seconds. Hose No. 2 did the same thing in 1 minute 12 seconds, but was penalized because two firemen appeared without helmets. Hose No. 3 finished second in 1 minute 20 sec¬ onds.
At the athletic events Representa¬ tive Lathrop Brown made his appear¬ ance. Uncle Joe Dowling, the vet¬ eran of the Southern New York Fire¬ men's Association, was an ofUcial.
The cups were, awarded in the evening by A. B. Wallace, chairman of the general committee. The fire¬ men celebrated all day. In the morn¬ ing there was a parade and inspection of the firemen by the village board.
Samuel Mott Smith, for many years a resident o'l Freeport, residing at 80 Smith stree^' (lied at the Amityvllle sanitarium liast Saturday In his sev¬ enty-sixth year. The funeral was held from the Freeport home on Tues¬ day, September 7, and interment was in Greenfield cemetery. Funeral Di¬ rector Chester A. Fulton had charge. Mr. Smith la survived by his widow.. Mra. Sarah Smith and one daughter, Mra. Sidney T. Post.
New York, Delaware and Iowa are the only states promising as much as a 100 per cent, production of cabbage this year, based on conditions on Au¬ gust 15, according to a reprint just issued by the bureau of crop esti¬ mates of the United States depart¬ ment of agriculture. The two princi¬ pal producing states are New York and Wisconsin.
The condition of onions for the State of New York on August 15 was reported at 70 per cent, of a normal crop.
In Wayne county the condition was reported at 49 per cent., and the probable total production was report¬ ed at 53 per cent, of the average total production of recent years, both acre¬ age and yield per acre being consid¬ ered.
The reports from Ofange county show a condition of 83 per cent, of a normal crop, aud a probable total production of 95 per cent, of an aver¬ age crop. A special agent of this bu¬ reau recently traveled through these counties, studying conditions and acreage. There are approximately 9,000 acres In onions In these two counties, or about 75 per cent, of the total acreage planted to this crop In the state. In Wayne and Orange counties there is an Increase of from 12 to 15 per cent, over tbe acreage of last year, wiilch. It Is thought, will e(iuallze the loss In production caused by an unusually wet season. The ex- -cesslve moisture caused the crop to mature earlier than usual, and with the ravages of the onion thrips, and blight, all combined to reduce the size of the onions grown. ''
The weather conditions that have been Tatal to onions have been Ideal for cabbages except in low places, and the reports show that throughout the country the crop has been practically free from the ravages of insect pests and disease. There is .therefore, ev¬ ery indication that under continued favorable- conditions an unusually large crop of cabbage wlll be harvest¬ ed throughout the northern belt.
I Supervisor Hiram R. Smith, in com- 1 pany with County Comptroller \ Charle-s L. Phipps and County Engl- I neer Starks, left for Albany Wednes- i day night on the night boat to confer ! with the state highway department on I Thursday relative to the condition of I the Long Beach road bridge and the powers which the county and town of¬ flcials have the right to exercise in connection therewith.
Supervisor Smith recently made a trip to Saybrook, Conn., to make an examination of and inquire into the methods used in building the large toll bridge in that locality, the au¬ thority, and the source of revenue as well as the up-keep.
The result of the trip to Albany will be awaited with interest.

ENTHUSIASTIC CROWD WITNESS EXCITING LABOR DAY EVENTS.
(By Special Cei respondent.
About 10 o'clock I.abor Day morn¬ ing the young son ol Mr. Leursson of Milburn avenue was riding a horse around the lot next m his home bare¬ back, when the hors' suddenly trotted out of the gate and ip the street. It v>as frightened in n me way and be¬ came excited and rau up Grand ave¬ nue, throwln|, its riaer near the cor¬ ner of Seaman avenue. The boy was, picked up and carried Into the home ^ of F. W. Walch, where a crowd; quickly gathered. He was badly, bruised, had a cut )n his head and ^ leg hurt, but was t:iken home where it was found that he waa not seriously injured. The horse ran up Grand avtt- nue and was flnally overtaken by men on bicycles and motorcycles. The anl- '¦ rnal was a new one, ;ormerly a ladies' saddle horse. 1
An enthusiastic crowd gathered; on Upper Grand avenue on Monday; afternoon (Labor Day) to witness thej races under the direction of the| Baldwin Counyy Club. In the 25 mile blcyclea race tiiere were 32 en¬
tries, the winners being mostly mea' from out of town. The event -which seemed to be of most Interest to all was the race between Arthur Thomas on horseback and Floyd Bedell and Chester Smith on a tandem. Md. Thomas had challenged .hny bicycle rider to a race, but the tandem won. An amusing contest was the running race between Baldwin's two barbers, De Angelis and Davie, Davie being the winner. A grand stand on the corner of Grand avenue and Miller place was well filled. The proceeds from the day are to go towards an athletic field for the club and Bald¬ win.

Well, Us BELL.MORE in big type hereafter, for on Labor Day that en¬ terprising village took position among the important centres of popu¬ lation in -Vassau Countv. It came to the front with a liurrah, whoop, and a bang that literally stunned folks from neighboring villages who came to witness a small-tinio celebration and saw something that for size and calibre made those other villages small in comparison. To begin with, the affair was iirojierly corulin ted by a well organized citizen's coMunittee, who. with care and patience, planned every detail so thai every part of the day titled in pert'e^ tiy with the gene¬ ral schonie of things and to their ijreat credit there was no liitcli. The chairman of every committee in charge of his pan of the aflair was on the job (DiitiiiMally and none had a report of failure to make.
The morning parade was an eye- opener for every one. No one ex- pecti.'d to sland on thu side and see what they saw in it. Grand .Marsliall Frank M. Graham, on a iiiagiiilicent horse, headed the columns and the formation following included ihe delegation ol citizens of Helimore under command of James K. Piace, then the St. John's Orplian Asylum Band of forty-nine pieces, giving martial nnisic such as oniy Ihis popu¬ lar hand can. Following came the detachment of the 2:!rd Regiment of Brooklyn, N. C. N. V., in lour com¬ panies, under command of -Major Robert Cooke, Captain Coffin and Captain Stockbrldge, every man a credit to the excellent training of Brooklyn's crack regiment. They re¬ ceived cheers all along the line to welcome tliem to Heilniore and the Town of Heinpstead.
After tlie militiamen came the commands of the Boy Scouts from Sniitli vlile South, Merrick and Bell¬ more, under command of Scoutmaster Wm. Tenney. These boys, all uni¬ formed and keeping a flne alignment, made a flno impression on their eld¬ ers. It was their flrst parade In public and they acquitted tliemselves nobly. Following was the decorated automobile containing Queen Marlon Allen and King George Johnson, elected after a spirited contest. Both received nitich attention from the crowds.
Division two brought forth the firemen, without whom no parade in Nassau County is ever complete, and a fine showing was made by the com¬ panies who madi- up this part of the parade. Headed by the Brooklyn p-lfe. Drum and Bugle Corps, the Merrick H. L. and Eng. Fo. No. I came into view with a fine body of uniformed men and tlieir snappy look¬ ing automobile apparatus. Then came the Merrick H. and L. Co. No,2, the Smithville H. L. and Eng. Co. No. 1, the two companies from Seaford. Chief W. Staehle, the Wantagh Flre Department, Chief Wm. Valentine in command; and then the home comi pany, which was the big surprise of the day-- the advance H. L. and Eng. Co. No. 1 under command of Chief Edgar Green with two apparatus. The home company appeared for the flrst time in their new unlforniR of white duck trousers, white caps and red neck ties. The niftiest aggrega¬ tion of fire flghters that evor turned' out to represent Bellmore, a credit to the village .and their commanding officer, Edgar Green.
Dlvslon number three Introduced the Camp Flre Girls and Blue Birds of F'reeport under Mrs. Bedell A. Cooper. This was a pretty feature of the parade as was the American Pioneer Girls of Baldwin under Com¬ missioner Mrs. Eben E. Acker, Fol¬ lowing these commands was the big N. Y. State Woman Suffrage delega¬ tion under Leader Mrs. Edna Buck- nani Kearns, with one hundred marchers In line, costumed to repre¬ sent various phases of the Important movement that will sweep the cause to victory at the polls next election. A float representative of a distinctive feature of the app<-al closed this di¬ vision.
Division four showed the decorated automoblleH of private owners and commercial cars whicb wae Interest¬ ing Inasmuch as great (-are was dis¬ played In decorating tiiese machincH, After the parade passed the stand on W. Wilson avenue and was re¬ viewed by Supervisor Hiram R. Smith, Congressman Brown, Assem¬ blyman McWhlnne> and General Chairman Jame
