Sir.— Enclosed you will find a memo­ randum of the work accomplished by Sheriff Henry Scherp. We believe this record -an unusal one and we think Mr. Scherp the logical candidate for nom.inart.ion. to the Sheriff's office, having .been Un­ der Sheriff during the time of the late Sheriff Lane, and Acting Sheriff since about May let. We desire to do what is possible \to Insure Mr. Scherp's nomination, and urge you to consider using your influence in that direction at once. Signed J. C. BALDWIN, JR. WINTHROP COWDtN.

The sense of an awakening has touch­ ed us here In Mt Kisco and filled us with the determination to go for­ ward with our plans and to bring to completion our long-hoped-for new church. To begin building operations now, we need $30,000, which sum of money, coupled with what we already have on deposit In the bank, will be sufficient, not to build the church In its entirety, but to build by far the greater portion of it. \The most beautiful church Is re­ quired by the .nature of our local needs.

There was quite a mix-up and no little amusement at the Primaries— or rather, the primary—held at the Court House at Bedford Village last Tuesday evening It seems that both the Democrats and the Republicans called' 1 for 'their primaries at the Court House and at exactly the same hour. The leaders agreed to have them both in the main hall, but just before the polls open­ ed the -crowds got mixed up, like Mr.. Dill's famous 57 varieties, and it was impossible to tell who was vot­ ing on which ballot. Finally when a straight Prohibition­ ist delegation was on the point of be­ ing named by the united votes of both parties, they gave it up and the Dem­ ocrats adjourned to the hall on the second floor and then everything was quiet and the proper delegates were elected as planned.
