flat — noise, dirt, contaminated air, no pleasing
outlook, no space for children, heterogeneous neighbors, high rent. Close-in neighbor-
hoods are soon crowded upon. A score of miles acts as a sifting process. Only those
go out who can appreciate the better things of life, and can afford them. The com-
munity becomes select. One takes pleasure in knowing his neighbors, for they are
people worth knowing. A pleasant social life is established. Low prices permit the
buying of a home and a fixity of residence. With wide green lawns, trees and flowers,
children have a suitable environment. Amid gUmpses of the blue sky, the sight of
waving grain fields, distant vistas of water and hills, and all the changing scenes
of nature, men and women can lead the life which a wise Creator ' they

should. And all this within an easv half-hour of Broadwav.

SOME SPECIAL ADVANTAGES

AI.THUUGH in a level country, the Mineola of the future need not be without pleasing landscape effects. The develop-
ment at Garden City shows what can be done. With a fertile soil, nature will lend herald; and if reasonable care is
taken in the designing of homes, the establishing of parks and the setting out of trees, Mineola will compare very
favorably with other cities. Reference has already been made to the exce])tional transportation facilities. Added to these are
the splendid highways which lead in all directions — the famous Jericho Turn])ike on the north, the fine Old Country
Road on the south, leading east and west; the equally- line north and south highways, and the great Motor Parkway,
now building, with Mineola as its western terminus. The exce])tional healthfulness of this region will be referred to
under a separate head, but the fact may here be alluded to that Mineola is inland, and, while enjoving a constant breeze,
is free from the harsh winds which make the shore fronts unsuiled, for most of the \-ear, to those with weak throats or
lungs. A few minutes ride, at a few cents cost, will take one, in the summer season, to the north or south shore for a day's
rest or recreation in bathing, boating or fishing. (.)ne living at Mineola can thus enjoy all the advantages of the shores
without enduring there the winter's discomforts and dangers. Mineola, too, is almost enlirelv free from the m(isc|uito pest
to whicli most shore towns are subject.

AS A BUSINESS POINT

'HU fad that Mincola i'iiio\-s exceptional transportation facilities ini])lies that it is,
)r will be, a good business center. Hspecially is this true when the productive
character of the surrounding country is considered. Few farming communities
handle as much money as does that around Mineola. In Ma\'
last a farmer near Mineola died whose estate inventoried about
(jne million dollars. The fact that a bank in Mineola has nearly
one million dollars of assets, and that a new bank has started,
shows that somebody in this community is doing business. The
large deposits in the banks provide ample funds for business loans.
I'^ven at ])resenl this \icinity affords profitable opportunities in all
lines of business and industry, and the increased population which
is certain to come will greatly enlarge these opportunities.

And a glance at a map will show that Mineola's business future
is not limited by the resources of the adjacent territory. It is so
located at a junction point that it will command a good share of
the almost incalculable growth which will soon take place on the
eastern half of Long Island. The two hundred and fifty thousand
acres of wild land which have bv recent experiments been proved
fertile will not much longer remain idle, and vast railroad pro-
jects will soon materialize at Montauk Point.

It follows, as a corollarv, that if Mineola is to have a large in-
crease in population and a large develo])ment along business lines
it must be a desirable jilace in which to make investments.

THE CHURCHES

INEOLA has four cluirch orsJanizations, each vvilli
an edifice of its own.

The Roman Cathohc Cliurch, " Corpus Chrisli,"
a I W'ihis and Garfield Avenues, was organized in 1895.
The new brick edifice, now building, will be handsome
and c(.)niniodious, a credit to the parish and the town,
leather James F. Flynn, who has charge at (lardea
Cit\- also, is the pastor.

The German Methodist lipiscopal Chnreh.
"St. Paul's," on Willis Ave., was organized in IS'-)'). Tlie
imstor is the Rev. F. Hagner, ?.bO East 28th St., Brooklyn.

"The Church of the Nativity," was also organized in 1899, although a
organization had been in existence.

The Presbyterian Church, at Main and First
vStreets, was organized in 1902, but is an outgrowth
of a luiion church which was organized in 1882.
It has a valuable church ]iroperty. Tlie Rev. ]{. J.
Lhn'd is pastor.

Ml inbersof other denominations conveniently find

clnirehesof their faith in someof the ad joining villages.

1 1 speaks well for the clunxh-going character

of Mineola that the churches, altiiougli yoinig, are

so well supported and so efficient. i.R,,sBvTEKi..N- Chukci
