The motto of the boys' division is "Help the Other Fellow." With this in mind the boys are proposing to take up a definite work by raising the money necessary to educate a poor orphan hoy in Mexico. Many misapprehensions as to different phases of the work were corrected and the general leelmg was that a closer bond now exists between the parents and the association workers. Many who had supposed that the V. M. C. A. building was open to any boys at all hours learned that no boy below sixteen years of age is allowed in the building after six o'clock, and only those over sixteen who hold senior memberships. The exceptions to these rules are on occasions of exhibitions, contests, games, etc., when parents are also invited.

A gathering of over one hundred enraged citizens attended the meeting of the Harlem village board last night, and for a time a riot seemed imminent. Each member of the board was greeted with jeers and comments as he entered the hall, and police protection was resorted to All the trustees were present. At the opening of the meeting, after a half hour of noisy demonstration on the part of the assembled citizens, the Yaryau ordinauce was read upon the motion of Trustee Lange. Following thia the routine business of the board was gone through with, nothing of importance transpiring until a communication from A. Kistenbroker was read by the clerk. Mr. Kistenbroker offered $26,000 to be paid by him in annual sums for the ordinance in consideration of which the board was to declare the Yaryan measure void. His offer was referred to the committee of the whole. So vehement did the protests of the citizens become at this time that Treasurer Fred Lange made neveral attempts to address them without A First -Cla.ss Grocery ôcîid Market.

They hooted themselves' hoarse in an endeavor to drown the words of the speaker, and the treasurer was forced to deliver his report later. After the recess of the hoard President (.¿fosse tried to quell the excited gathering but with little success. Ex-president Joseph Kliin-mer was then allowed to speak for the people of Harlem. He declared the franchise to be illegal from the fact that it was for a sum greater than $501) and had been granted without advertising it. A. Ross declared that a petition had been sigued by a majority of the citizens asking that the board reconsider its action and that the petition had been referred to the board. It was turned over to the committee of the whole. "The people of Harlem arc in a heated state of mind over this thing," said President (irosse at the close of the meeting. -'They do not realize that the contract is closed and that so far as the board is concerned our work is completed. They will think better of the ordinance when they see we have acted for them in this matter." Telephones Private Exchange 1.53 Purveyors qf Pure Foods II9-I2I0N.
