Y., FRIDAY, AUGUST 27, 1909. $1.50 A YEAR HOWMZ KISCO INTENDS TO PUT ROADS IN SHAPE Facts and Figures that Will Be Put Before the People for Decision.—Special Elec­ tion to be Held on Sept. 8th. The exclusive' publication, in last week's Katonah Times, of th e ar ­ rangements concluded with th e State authorities b y Kx-Souator Carpenter and I \V Turner, on behalf of Mt Kisco Village, has been th e leading subject of interest »o th e people of Bedford during th e past week While th e proposition i s clear enough in its general outlines, there has been some misunderstanding as to th e methods b y which th e plan of improvement will be realized Some people have the impression that it i s intended to da th e work -piecemeal, a bit here and a bit there, with consequent interruption of traf- ; fic and general discomfort to the com munity. This, however, i s not th e case. While the law forbids th e construe- tion of a state road with more than jffy 'an. 8 % grade a t any point, it does ij^not prevent th e making of connect­ ing links with village roads which may happen to have, at some point their course, a grade steeper than j$bfrt prescribed for th e main State Wfhway, providing the convenience of people i s served by th e building i}»uch a connection ™*aferritt's hill has hitherto been the itacle i n th e way of a continuous highway through th e heart of jjjjj &Kisco.

Two serious accidents marred th e Sunday quiet of Bedford Village this week and called attention t o th e ne ­ cessity of greater caution in the mat­ ter of speeding on our highways.

O Hobby and family, of New York city, stopped at once and went to the assistance of Mr. Hoyi who still held on to the horse although his wrist was broken.
