VOL. XXX No. 52 MING TO IMPROVE MOUNT KISCO'S APPEARANCE. < City.to Clear Away Land neat the Station—Public Spirited Residents Feel Need of Betterments. Mt. Klsco people, returning to their homes on the adjacent hill tops for the season, are all discussing the re­ cent condemnation proceedings which will do away with the row of houses and small hotels on the West side of Lexington Avenue. The City authorities have taken ti­ tle to all this strip of land —53 par­ cels— and Commissioners are at work now, deciding on the claims of Jhe various owners whose properties are in*olved in the proceedings It. is said that before this Summer is ended all the details in connection with this removal will be settled and the actual work of demolition and removal begun. What will become of the Italian population, UIUH justed from their present dwellings, is not yet definately decided, but it is like­ ly that they will go across the street and increase the foreign settlement North o f the Railroda station. The purpose of the condemnation is t o maintain the purity of Ne w York's water supply, which receives the flow from the adjacent brook. When the houses are cleared away, there will remain a strip of cleared ground which will, if properly looked after, improve the appearance of the village. In this connection it may be remarked that public opinion in Mt. Klsco is crystallizing in favor of a movement to park the streets that lead down to the Harlem Railroad station, plant trees and shrubbery, and improve the surroundings gener­ ally, so that strangers will get a bet- tetpreaaten—of-4he- ity than i s the case at present. Work o n the sewer system goes on satisfactorily and just as soon as the trunk lines are laid there will be a vote taken on an appropriation to macadamize the highroads. As wa s pointed out by the Trus­ tees at the recent election, it would have been expensive folly to make permanent roads before the under­ ground work was completed. The Village wa s so long tiid up by legal injunction on tshe part of certtin dhwatirfitd residents ihr.t actual work by the progressive e',e- TSmt haS^lon* bee* delayed. Nifw that the voter* har e supported the acta of the Village Officers by their decision at the polls, there Is every prospect of getting through the im­ provements which all those who have interests in the vicinity are urgently demanding.

MAY 14, 1909. $1.50 A YEAR 1IF HAS TWO 111 Of HORSE THIEF BAND Armed Italians Arrested, One at Yonkers and-fine at Mount Ver­ non, with Rigs Stolen from the Eckhart Place at ArmonK. By ihe capture of two Itaffans, now lodged in tho White Plains jail, the Sheriff's office and police of Yon­ kers and Mt Vernon believe confi­ dently that they have laid hands o n the gang which has been running off horses in all parts of the County It was after a daring attempt at Armonk on Wednesday night, that the Sheriff's posse started out They scoured the region in automobiles and notified all th ^ various police stations to be on the watch for the men sus­ pected. On Thursday tw o suspicious char­ acters were arrested at about the same time— on e in Yonkers and on e in Mt Vernon, who, from description are believed to. b e the ringleaders of the remarkably audacious and suc­ cessful band, that has gotten away with some thirty horses in the course of their depredations Shortly before six A M . Officer Clancy, of th e M t Vernon police, having in mind the general alarm sent out by th e Sheriff, stopped an Italian who gave his name as Joseph Nicola The fellow could give no ac­ count of himself, except to say that lie lived in Harle m and was going there,.so the officer put him under arrest, charging him with .carrying a concealed weapon. H e had a nine- inch blade knife A little over fifteen minutes later nan, force, arrested a man driving a Bray horse, who said h e was Dominick Mo- rell, and was going to New York. He carried a loaded revolver and extra ammunition He was also held for carrying concealed weapons and hav­ ing stolen property in his possession. The owner of the horses and car­ riages, C W Eckhardt, came from New York and identified the prop­ erty, and the thieves will be taken back to Armon k for commitment. They' claim that they found the out­ fits by the roadside. will bring into thfs part of Weatchest- er County many desirable residents whose coming will be of general ben­ efit to the whol e neighboring region, not to speak o f the added comfort and convenience it will provide for those now living here.

Mr H G Marquand, of Bedford, and Rev C W Dunham, of Mt .

Kisco High School, has ageoe'd to handle the matter in his locality as h e did last year, with great success. A committee named by th e Asso­ ciation will visit the gardens of those interested from time to time during the Summer, and decide on th e gen­ eral merits. Neatness and taste will count as well as the floral display..] The sum of $100 in prizes is t o b e distributed by the Association. ********* I I I I i •'••••H>>'H'>'H\H'>|I'|IIH.4II|I< a I iM\M\M»» mount Hi sco t Mrs. Henry Wood, recently a bride, PURPOSE OF THE BEDFORD FARMERS CO-OPERATIVE ASS'N.

BAKER-IZED COFFEE You do not have to be an expert to see the dif­ ference between Baker-ized (Steel Cut) Coffee and coffee ground the old way, and a trial for u few days will show that its superiority in quality, flavor and wholesomeness is just as marked. Note the clean steel-cut\ pieces of Baker-ized Coffee, free from dust and chaff. Each piece yields its rich essential oils evenly and fully, and with no bitter chaff\ flavor to nutralize. It makes a cup of coffee pure and delicious. The chaff removed from Baker-ized Coffee is not coffee. It tastes weedy, bitter and nauseous. The Harrington Hall Baker-ized Coffee makes a fine, exhilarating be\ - erage, appreciated by millions of Americans.
