V., -BffiAY, JULY 2, 1909. 51.50 A YEAR III The June meeting of the B^tlford Farmers' Club was held on Friday last at the residence of Mr. Henry Marquand, the subject being Good Roads' and how to get them The president. Mr .lames Wood, was in the chair and after the usual routine business introduced in a few well chosen words the speaker of the day, the Hon S Percy Hooker, head of the lately appointed commission having care of the roads of the state Senator Hooker is well equipped for the responsible post for which Gov­ ernor Hughes selected him and han- died .Ms subject with skill.and illumi­ nating power Few of the many good speakers provided by the Club have been so interesting and so well post­ ed. He. 4rew -a. picture of. the new diffi­ culties presented by new conditions, , especially automobile traffic and . showed how widely the proposition s of building a military road by use of troops and regardless of expense dif- 1 erred from the^-production and the maintenance of highways on a com- merclal basis- Senator Hooker show- the new' commission appre-. \iu made in the- cnoice-of chairman, r - \ At' the close' ot .his argument he -met /Bome rapid lire questions from Hon. Setb! Low, Dr. Starr and other members. The information was elic­ ited that- $1,500,000 Is available for repairs to state roads and the presi­ dent called the commissioner's atten­ tion to the fact that Westchester be­ sides being the third county of the state with a hustling lot of residents who are going some, is also the play­ ground for the motorists of New York who come out in clouds every fail- day to the great advantage perhaps of our restaurants, but to the detri­ ment of our thoroughfares Great interest was manifested not only in Senator Hooker's address but in the side remarks drawn out by the questions of his auditors, and the commissioner was undoubtedly* impressed by the willingness of thiij]) community to stand by the commisv}' «ion and give it every proper aid and 1 * encouragement. 'A- Seldom has a subject been intnH duced which has appealed so general^ ly to all club members as well as to-: their guests, and the meetlnjr~cl— with a feeling that New York hatf- 1,1 at last taken step£ to place her on? a line with her more advanced neigh?-? bors. / After the meeU Mr Marquand\ expressed his pie- re in welcoming the Bedford Fsv rs to Whttegate^l Farm and ho' that the practisfe of holding ttv une meeting at filsJ house had now prevailed ldjng enough; to be regarded as an immemorial ttfN thoughts of Discontent in Rome BY HENRY G. MARQUAND. I wandered through the streets of Rome, t Wishing and wishing myself at home, For as I trod those highways old I caught, I caught an awful cold, Chilling the marrow through and through Until the very air was blue. Such might a senator have known Whose bust survives in noseless stone; Or pious cardinal, if you please), Who's almost always on his sneeze. 'T was here that history was_ made And this is Rome—but Rome decayed! They think it's monstrous fine, their Corso, Broadway, says I, Is vastly more so, And as they saunter idly by, \Step lively, there! Both gates!\ says I. Ic this the race that Vergil knew, Whose lofty spirit Ah, Kerchoo! The same, but changed beyond belief— (Oh, thunder! Where's my handkerchief?) Here drift the wrecks of every shore i Dug-up and derelict and bore, And'Caesar's halls are filled with bats And discontented tabby-cats. What mortal can resist the thrill That smites him on the. Pincian Hill, Who spies in circumambient air Bramante's bubble floating there.? Or shall we feed the fire divine And turn our steps toward Palatine Where on the Sacred Way was spread The gorgeous pageant of the dead, And linger on those lovely slopes The cenotaph of human hopes? \ Hare might a prince,' Maecen as, dwell.

He spoke in praise of Bed- Word and said that while he frequent­ ly; lapsed into foreign travel it was ;only for the pleasure of coming back 'io Westchester and hearing his neighbors say, \We are glad to se^ ^you're back \ \If they were half as glad,\ he 'said, \to see me face as they pro­ fessed to be to see me hack, I ;Should feel that I had not lived in jtaln.\ He said that having spent a good |part of the winter in Rome it was \•necessary to do as the Romans do .and as the principal business of that (Tcapltal was digging up mutilated em- Iperors it was necessary to fit a theo­ ry to account for the absence of noaes in all the numerous busts ^'unearthed.

Sergeant Fee has served 8 years in White Plains and within that time he has many captures to his credit. He is a man who never gives up a case and he has often made import­ ant arrests when others have given up hope He had broad experience with the Pinkerton Detective Agen­ cy and for a long time he was sta­ tioned at Glen Island and in this way he came to know manV of the \crooks\ living in this section of the country He speaks Italian fluently.
