W E ARE SORRY TO SEE, in the editorial comment of' » White Plain* newspaper, the following.: • \The town police aot ie proving a good thing for the up-country Super­ visor*. It give* them some good jobs to hand out.\ This is an instance of the common tendency to prejudge a case, without considering the facts. The Town of Bedford, in which the whole plan originated, is the first to take definite action under the Law's provisions and .it Is a reas­ onable Inference that the above remarks were meant to apply to our local offteers. ^2 The\truth is that so far^pnT*wishing to make of the, Town Police Law a means for the distrlbutldn of patronage, our Town Board has ser­ iously considered appointing the men entirely from outside 'sources. If this plan is not carried through, it will be merely because the addition­ al living expenses incurred by outsiders and the extra inducement need­ ed to bring men from a distance, would add uselessly to the salary fund required. What is being done now by Messrs. Barrett and Baldwin (the Com­ mittee In charge) Is the careful selection of a form of examination- to, determine the qualifications of all applicants. Civil Service, methods will be combined with tho special tests of fitness applied to such bodies as th»-Pepns**vanla Constabulary and the- Police of New York and other cities. Every irfppJIcant for an appointment to the local Constabulary will b»_ subjected to an examination li\ competition with all others, and only after passing creditably wTTT armarrto*^eHgfble to serve.

'''' ' Concerning tho letter of Mr. F. J. La Farr in the last week's 'Times' it is only fair to M$ Kjs^o/s ^lleo< men to atate that the \hold-up\' of Mr, Browji occurred at a point.some distance outside, the Village limits. The police are employed by Mt. Kisco's trustees to patrol the streets and are not required to act outside their own territory. If they keep or­ der within! the Village limits that is enough to ask of them. The need for protection of the out­ lying districts has been long appar­ ent and this bold daylight attempt is only another case in point. It is for the Town police to deal With such crimes. The Town Board la organiz­ ing ita force at this moment and they promise .|o- have uniformed man patrolling the unfrequented roads within a few weeks. As one Village officer remarks apro pos of the Brown case: •^rfceHeVa-tfta -preeemr ftoatd of trustees of the Village of Mount Kisco would go to almost any ex­ pense to apprehend a gang of blackhanders for a crime commit­ ted oh attempted within the Vil­ lage llmlli. _JBJU if.ihey are ex­ pected and allowed to spend the taxpayers' money for policing the outside territory, .why the neces­ sity of any town police bid?\ The always flippant N. Y. Sun has been jesting lately at th,* expense of our Bedford Station neighbor, Mr. Seth Low. Ita merry theme is that New York's former Mayor has pas­ sed into the realm' of myths. But anyone who has seen, the activity at Broad Brook Farm recently will tes­ tify that Mr. Low la aa much alive aa whan he wop the- great Fuaion victory. He has been translated, that is all, and from the chrysalis state of a City man has emerged into the 1 butterfly existence of a Weatchester -ObwMJrtk'rrneY; • • ' ^ ' r W: QAW-tyj . \EWoug ^r? .andtftsa.rtvttAdoe .the <ards, Care-free, as when the pretty play began. jByt if who also aimed in jest at first.

The farm owner should take such a measure of pride in his premises as will lead him to give the homestead a name, painted on a neat signboard, with his own beneath. When he has his place properly labeled in this man­ ner he should have some note beads and envelopes printed, also giving the name of the farm,, to be used in the family and business correspondence.
