Yesterday the State Senate, with the aid of the votes of Senators Foelker and Wallace, passed Gov. Hughes' anti-racetrack gambling bills. The. vote was 26 to 25. Those who opposed the. bill fought:- to the very last, but were unable to change the vote of a single senator. The hope is surely being every­ where expressed, and we earnestly join in it, that Senator Foelker's heroic trip to Albany will not prove top costly, but that he will escape permanent ill results from the strain of travel and the excitement of at­ tendance at that dramatic session of the Senate. The result is a great personal tri­ umph for Governor Hughes and will add immensely to his prestige. When in his message of last January he urged the passage of the anti- gambling legislation, few realized what a force of public opiaion he would enlist in his support. He has won a truly great victory. Doyle Brothers have added a fine, large awning with a large sign printed on it, to their grocery store on Katonah avenue. The seven teachers hired for the coming year are as follows: C. A. Wallace, Principal; Miss Irene B. Adams, P ^•eceptre8s; Miss Lavinia S. Cole, 8th grade and music; Miss Belle Murphy, 6th and 7th grades; Miss Adelaide E.Arnold, 4th and 5th grades; Miss Jetta R. Bailey, 2d and 3d grades, and Miss J. McKnight, Primary. The school another year promises to be even larger than the past year. The principal anticipates over 50 in the primary department and the other rooms ranging from thirty to fifty. The high school de­ partment will be larger than ever be­ fore and Principal Wallace estimates thirty-five outside of the eighth grade. In view of thelarge number of scholars the board of education should consider the advisability of having a four years' high school course instead of a three years' course, as at present. This would necessitate the hiring of one more teacher in the high school depart­ ment. The Home Missionary Society of the M. E. church will meet with Mrs. L. W.

Mr. Brower, who has been growing steadily younger and spryer ever since he celebraten bis 81st birthday, until the neighbors now expect to see him climbing after cherries and \skinning the cat,\ has lately an­ nounced a novel theory of the moral character of crows. These birds, he says, are the vic­ tims of long standing prejudice. Black as their feathers are, he thinks their hearts are white. They are not robbers but benefactors, and suffer obloquy unmerited, like other unfor­ tunates who strive to do good to unworthy men. When a crow visits a cornfield, says Mr. Brower, he goes with intent to search out and exter­ minate a certain ill-favored white slug which lurks underground to the great peril of the growing stalk. \I nave often followed around the field,\ says Mr. Brower, \where the crows have pulled up corn and b y closely observing the ground I have discov­ ered that wherever the earth was disturbed there were traces of the mangled remains of these destructive slags. It was them and not, as most people think, the grains of young corn that the crows wanted to eat.\ Thus is a new light thrown on an old and painful subject. The herd of wild cattle is again on the rampage up and down our other­ wise quiet thoroughfare. The resi­ dents speak of the road as the \Fifth Avenue of Katonah,\ and it pains them to have these predatory un- governed bo vines stampeding up and down, to the great peril of life and limb and sure destruction of flower gardens. The summer boarder girl, who begins to be in evidence, is frightened out of her wits, at the sound of bellowiug, and even John Quick's peaceful black cow makes her nervous by association of ideas. Peri odicullv this rampageous herd, lie by a wild-eyed bullock, sallies for witli a thunderous noise to spre terror and devastation on all sir 1 The good people are so frigbte that a cow 's rowing Js enough send them fleeing to their attic* cyclone cellars.

It is usually a brain-racking process with results sometimes happy, sometimes, just funny and often colorless.

To the Editor of the KATONAH TIMES, My Dear 8ir:- I wish through your columns, in the name of God, to dent those false charges against me, which appeared im a recent article, in the N. i. World, and afterwards quoted ID the \Katonah Times.\ Evidently because of a mistake, someone is trying to destroy my character and reputation, and the slanderer must saner the penalty. Rev. J. A. 8 MITII. No trace has been obtained of the two Black Hand Society desperadoes who sent letters threatening death to ^Isaac W. Turner, president of the Village of Mount Kisco and George Raymond, a farmer of Bedford. Last Friday night the home of Mr. Raymond was guarded by con­ stables and the farmer had several f uns within it with which to defend imself. Both Mrs. Turner and Mrs. Raymond were hysterical over the letters received. Mr. Turner, who has settled in Mt. JSHisco a few yearB ago, is known as T ;he \Lodging Hous<» King,\ having Amassed a fortune through the ownership of a string of lodging houses in the citv. The Tetter threat­ ening President Turner tells him to take care of himself when he is walk­ ing along the Bowery. Mr. Raymond and President Tur­ ner, after Sheriff Lane's men and sev­ eral constables had failed to trap Juhe writers of the letters, induced the Sheriff to appeal to Commissioner Bingham, with the result that sev­ eral experts from the Italian bureau and a couple of Central Office men have been detailed to the case. Three letters were sent to Mr. Ray­ mond. The first was addressed to Mr. and Mrs. Raymond. The last letter received on Thurs­ day afternoon of last week was mailed in Bedford at 0 o'clock. There was a special delivery stamp on it. He called up Sheriff Lane at White Plains, and i t was planned to trap the men. It was suggested that Mr. Raymond go t o the point indicated in the letter and that constables and deputy sheriffs surround the place. Mr. Raymond refused to be used as a decoy. Constable Kinkle, who is about the size of the farmer, agreed to impersonate him. When it had grown good and dark, Kinkle left the farm house. Con­ stables Russell and Weber were in a wagon near the bridge. Soon they saw a couple of men come out of the woods further down the road. \What'do yon want?\ asked the constables. \We are here for the same thing you are,\ said one of the men. \Sheriff's men,*' said the con­ stables to themselves. Tho two men came close and then, leveling revol­ vers at the two constables, said: \You get out of here as fast as you can go. Tlie two guardians of the peace caught sight of the long, shining gun I barrell gleaming in the moonlight and turued and whipped up their horses, although they had guns in the wagon. Bailey's Dept.
