Freeport, L. I., Nov. 25 A great warrior trudges along snow-covered roads, dragging his steps at the head of the remnant of a defeated army; a great actor stripped of his glamor In a moment, totters past the front of the theater where his name is being re-$ ; moved from an electric sign a great well digger moves his derricks out . I town while village officials stand by with thumbs down. For the curtain has fallen on the four-year efforts of A. J. Connolly of Newark, N. J., a well digger of 50 years of experience and established reputation; and while still optimistic and confident he has been branded a failure and told to leave town. It was more than four years ago that efforts to dig a well at the power house were started by a man who ha? been digging wells all over the country, who was at one time worth more than one million dollars, and who did not know the meanirg of the word failure. Sought Under--round Stream. But the passing years brought changing fortunes and it was gray haired pleasant faced Connolly of gentle mien who started to pierce the soil in search o subterranean streams that would supply millions of gallons a day to a waiting pop ulace. One thing after another went wrong, pipes burst and became cemented in their sockets by years of standing. Matters grew worse and worse. The contract expired and then came a long series of exten sions. But even they had to end, and the last one ended Saturday with no hope of any extension. Mem'iers of the village board faced a hard task in finally placing the" brand of failure on a man who had demonstrated a wonderful pa tience and optimism backed by $25,-000 of his own money. Other village officials who are young at the game and who may have predicted failure smirked openly until silenced by black looks of a sympathizing public, f,or it was no pleasure to see an old man walk down the road to defeat.

It Is believed now that the buried pipe will be covered over with dirt and that the spot will be known as "Connolly's Folly," paralleling the case of the old reservoir in Rockville Centre that was built at great expense and would not hold water, and got the name of "Freel's Folly." Rumors have it that with Connolly out of the way. some one will try and persuade the village to complete a job that may be very nearly completed, and thus deprive the rightful heir of the glory of achievement and its financial fruits. If such a thing does happen it Is as sured that vox populi will be heard through a loud speaker, and it is predicted that the four-year well will be Just a grave and nothing Valley Stream Offices To Be Moved on Jan. 1 Valley Stream, L.
