The Rev. Wm. Thaw Bartlett, of Katonah will preach. All are welcome Followiog election day, the month of. November gave us some bleak, cold weatber, but at near the three-quarter stretch there were fine sunny days, w ith very frosty nights. A new stove was put in the school hou-e last Saturday by Kellogg & Me.id, of Katonah. The fantastic toe was gaily tripped last Thursday night at Mr. Clarence Piatt's, and the wee small hours of morning had passed ere the last step was taken to the expiring notes of the weary muslcinn. The air of late appears to be laden with the odor of the mountain mink. One cause of so much skunk smell is due to trapping, which this fall is ex­ tensively carried on by our local trap­ pers, one of whom has about one hun­ dred traps set.

By the picking Up from the ground ^^l^jg^gjuloided gun while two nag-men were trying to get a rabbit t of a stonewall, a young man, twen- two years of age, who was a resi­ dent «f Mount Vernon, is now lying in his last resting place. The accident occurred last Friday near Warren Ras- o'oe's, who now resides about one and One-half miles north of Poundrldge \Village. The boy, who that morning pleaded a head-ache to his teacher as an excuse to leave, but in reality to go hunting with the men, is but thirteen, and, boylike, picked up the gun, more, no doubt, to hold a gun in his hands, than for any other reason But, sad to relate, the gun was discharged and the contents entered the young man at close range near the stomach, causing death while being taken in an ambu­ lance to his home. On receiving the shot the young man remarked that he would soon \be in the happy hunting ground.\ No blame was attached to the boy other than accident.

An article receatly published by several sensational newspapers con­ taining a highly colored story con­ cerning Miss Cora Van Norden, daughter of Mr. Warner Van Norden, of New York city, joining the Salva­ tion Army, belongs to a class of pub­ lications in which some papers in­ dulge regardless of the pain they in­ flict. The entire article was an ingen­ ious fabrication, prepared for the double purpose of advertising the authors and a s a sensational fling at a supposed \millionaire\ and his family. The details of the story are wholly false The esteem in which the gentleman alluded to and his daughter hold the Army is well known, but any admira­ tion for its self-denying work has never for a moment tempted the lat­ ter to relax her devotedness to the duties of home and family Neither has she worn the uniform or ever contemplated doing any of the things implied. Whatever she has dune has n with the full consent of her fa­ ther. Her well known devotion to him and the tender and loving rela­ tions existing between them are a theme too sacred for discussiou. Their confidence in each other is un­ faltering. The publication is one of many in­ stances of the invasion of the privacy which is the right of every citizen, but for which some newspapers care nothing in their ruthless quest for sensation. This publicity is most distasteful to all concerned. Killed by Auto. W Arthur Purdy, bother of T. Milton Purdy, the well known archi­ tect, of White Plains, was run down and killed by an automobile early Sunday morning not far from the entrance to Wm.
