DUNNE - Mr. and Mrs. Desmond Dunne are spending the summer at the
Prospect House, Bayshore.
ROCHE - There is no more efficient or upright member of the detective force in
this town than Detective Roche. Mr. Roche is a man who goes right ahead in what
seems to him to be the path of duty and ignores the petty jealouses that too
often mar the character of followers of his profession.
NAUGHTON - Mr. James W. Naughton, Engineer of the Construction Depart-ment of

all inclined to a favorable complexion.

at his cottage at Islip while his family are traveling in Canada.

and other near-by resorts.

Mr. Thomas B. Preston, one of the editors of the New York Herald and a nephew of
Monsignor Preston, delivered a lecture on "Socialism and the Single Tax."
WALSH - Mrs. Marie Walsh, of No. 31 South Elliott place, is engaged in the composition
of a new drama which she thinks will overtop anything she has so far produced.
HOWARD - The many friends of Mr. William Howard, chief clerk to the Supervisor-at-large,
will be glad to learn that the severe wound upon his hand is almost healed.
"Billy" bathes it with the milk of human kindness, thus preventing possible
blood-poisoning, and is now no longer obliged to hold his pen is his teeth.
SATCHELL - Fidelis Council, No. 1137, A. L. of H., has one of the most
energetic of secretaries. His name is Mr. W. E. Satchell, and he is one of
the best informed men upon matters connected with the order in this city.

precinct, with her son George, is passing the summer in Sullivan County.
Master George, who was in poor health throughout the spring, is deriving much
benefit from the mountain air of Sullivan.
CARROLL - That genial Circuit Court clerk, Mr. Joseph W. Carroll, is now
officiating in the Supreme Court in the place of Clerk Merchant, who is away

listener to the argument in the various litigations, but it has been noticed
that he has a decided objection to and frowns upon divorce cases.

Elevated Railroad Company of New York, was formerly a broker doing business

Y.W.C.A., both as a director and a leader in all its meetings in speaking and
doing, and is universally respected as an unright Christian gentleman.
HOLLOWAY - Mrs. Laura C. Holloway, through whose instincts and a desire to
elevate the race was formed the Seidi Society, by whose entertainment many a
poor, weary woman's heart is made to leap again in joy, is a lady of many
vitrues, from who mind it would be but natural to expect such an idea to
SMITH - Some people talk philanthrophy, others think how philanthropic they
would be if they could only afford it, and others are actively philanthropic.
To the last-mentioned class the Rev. A. D. Smith, of this city, belongs, and
among his rewards are the gratitude and love of hundreds of little children
to whose health and happiness he has contributed as the manager of the
Brooklyn branch of the TRIBUNE Fresh Air Fund.
WALKLEY - Among the causes for the habitual air of serenity and contentment
characteristic of the District Attorney is the fact that he is free from the
bother of office detail, owing to the efficiency of his chief clerk, A. H.
Walkley. This gentlemen is a recognized exponant of what are called business
principles, and as a consequence business relations with him are of a
satisfactory and agreeable venture.
