Long life and hai'd woric is in the^ air at East Hampton, even as much as the ringing of the bells, manufacture of which has made the town famous. .

At E:30 in the'morn- ing, -the working day starts when the bell at Bevin's factory first tolls. The town's nine factories "turn out, besides hells, toys, gla&s racks, fish nets, folding boxes~ and nylon thread. Xot one train runs through the town to disturb the general peace. By 9 p. m. everyone is*ready for bed. - " " To most of those living in East Hampton, Bevin is "Uncle Chan." the man who last summer, when the temperature was BG in the shade, pitched in on his farm to direct the work himself because he thought some of the boys were loafing a little.
