A transcript of quaint oldbpituphs, graven bnthestonesof the bid South Salem churchyard wherein, for more thun M century, the forefathers of the community were buried, has just been issued in book form by the Horse and Houud. It is full of gen- eolgic data gathered with painstuk- care from graves that in many cases are almost obliterated by time and the elements. It is not possible t o learn when the churchyard was firstusedfor burials. The earliest stones are so badly worn by the weather that their inscriptions are illegible. Probably one of the first cut stones is that on the grave of Mary, wife of Nathan Northrop, and bearing the name and address of the maker. This was probably brought from Newark, N. J., by ves­ sel to Norwalk, Conn., and then on a reduced. Throughout Westchester the far-sighted investors arc mg the weather to take advantage of the prices due to the recent liression Not only are the builders benefiting by their own activity, hut the lumber yards and factories are being relieved of the pressure of their stocks, the idle body of laborers is receiving employment, money is coming into circulation; all of which tends toward the general prosperity of the community. Katonah has done her share of the good work: some building is going on and more is in contemplation. —ff-—| you are going to build, if you are looking for an investment for surplus capital, Bl'ILD NOW. We venture to predict that the coming spring will show such acti\ ity in construction work that the present low prices will not hold throughout the summer. JiUILI) NOW. THE NATIONAL GUARD AND THE COUNTRY DISTRICTS. Mr. George W. Mead has introduced in the Assembly an act for an appropriation for the erection of a State armory at White Plains. This bill is one that bears directly upon the interests of not only of White Plains and the immediate vicinity, hut of the country at largo. With our standing army at an admittedly low figure, and a thorough comprehension of the conditions of modern warfare, under which no mere personal bravery or initiative in the ranks can possibly take the place of efficient training, it is not necessary to discuss the im­ portance of jthc National Guard, and any legislation tending toward in­ creased efficiency in the Militia is a step in the right direction. In the larger cities the various regiments obtain recruits from a large and varied field, hut an infusion of ney blood from the surrounding coun­ try districts would be of immeasurable advantage to the service. Un­ fortunately the average young men of the countryside, from whom- the Guard should draw a good percentage of its rank and file, can afford neither the time nor money for a weekly trip to the nearest city. The Guard needs the young men of the smaller villages, and the men themselves would undoubtedly he greatly benefitted by the disciplinary and broadening influence of the Guard, therefore an act such as Mr. Mead's, which brings the militia in closer touch with the country districts, should receive the hearty support of every thinking citizen. otes otW« tabli busirv crary, ubhean leadeil is soon to es- nut and bolt Ind.

The local paper has a field of its own. It is the most closely read of all papers. As I have said, the advertising value of a newspaper is in propor­ tion t o the \buying\ capacity of its readers. Progressive and rather prosperous people do the bying. Therefore the local paper should in­ still in the minds of its readers that \move along\ spirit which stands for local improvement and progress in every liu* of effort. An energetic, wide-awake paper attracts readers who do thiugs. It influences them to buy more and merchandise of better quality. It induces them to dress better, to live better and to be better. The reader's intense interest in the news section is unconsciously shifted to the ndvertisempntsas well A lazv. careless sort of paper makes stupid-readers who care nothing for better ways of 'iving A good paper is the moving spirit in the town in which it is published. The local paper thuf has a repnta tion for truthful statements, that is honest with its readers and fearless in its attitude toward everything that opposes the public \rood that stands for clean government and 111- telectual and niorul progress in the community, wins the confidence of its renders. Such confidence ex­ tends to the advertisements as well. Truthfulness is the first requisite of a good advertisement. Readers are likely to believe an advertiser's state­ ment if they can rely on the news features of the paper Public confi­ dence is the greatest essential for a business suocess. It is the adverti­ ser's most prized asset —Ameriran Prexx Health Cornmisefioner'Darlrogton planned a novel way to find out all that is knowable ou how cheap clean milk can best be supplied to the New York market. He went right to headquarters for his inforrnajioji in this wise. He offered tho farmer who should write the best essay on the subject two fancy cows, with un­ blemished records, as a prize. It ap­ pears that Messers James Speyer and Archibald Huntington are to give the cows, though the idea of this novel composition originated with the Commissioner. We now wait to hear the result. Tel.
