A civic celebration at Cold Spring

-Sunday commemorated fifty years

•of service as a minister of the Metho­

dist Episcopal Church by the Rev. Dr.

Benjamin Clark Warren, retiring pas­

tor of tlie Cold Spring ChurctL Presi­

dent Hoover sent a letter of congrat­

ulation, and ministers and representa­

tives of an religious denominations

participated In a parade and exercises

in the Tovn H&H.

Tributes from the clergy of the

township emphasized the thought that

sectarian dllTerences and prejudices

had been minlmiaed in the commun­

ity ihrou^ the ministry of Dr. War­

ren. A scndl. prepared by the Rev.

Xieo Edward Ryan, pastor of Our Lady

of Loretta Church, which recited the

affectionate repard of the residents of

Gold Spring, Nelsonville, Manltou, No.

Highlands and PhUtpstown and wa|i

tigned by representatives of all faiths

was presented to the retiring minis­


The twin villages of Cold Spring

and Phtlipstown were decorated' with

bunting, and all available space In the

Town Hall was crowded by those who

wished \o honor Dr. Warren, thirty

of whose fifty years as an ordained

minister had been passed In the Hud­

son Valley.' An: overflow crowd on the

steps of the Town Hall and In an ad­

joining church heard the program

through loud ^wakers.

In his tribute, Pather Ryan said

Dr. Warren had always shown him­

self free from the "blighting spirit

of prejudice," and cohduded with the

expression that ^'If, as a result of the

meeting nothing more should come

than a fixed and firm determination

on the part of each and every one

of us to stamp out all qiirit of preju­

dice and Mgotry. then the name of

Benjamin Clark Warren should go

down In the annals of this commun­

ity as a beautiful symbol of true

brotherly love, held In hallowed bene­

diction from generation to genera­


Alfred D. Bennett, pastor of the

Cold Spring Baptist Church, alluded

to Dr Warren as "speaking for the

living God for fifty years, emphasiz­

ing those things upon which all creeds

may agree and minimizing those

things upon which we may legitimate­

ly disagree."

The representative of the one Jew­

ish family in the community, Jacob

OUck, was unable to attend beoauae

of the death of his brother, but he

sent a message in which he wished

Dr. Warren contentment and peace in

his new home, followed by the love

and esteem which be had engendered

In the heartfi of the conununlty.

In his response Dr. Warren spoke

of the Intangibles of life, one of which

was the ideal of the brotherhood of


"We have looked too long already

upon a people divided In heart and

soul In Christendom and beyond Chris­

tendom," he said. "It seems as

though a voice over sea and shore

were calling for unity as we march

heavenward in the sanctified foot­

prints of the Prince of Peace. It

-seems that the sweet, bright day is al­

ready spreading its drawing glory

upon the Eastern sky when there shall

be one fold and one Shepherd." He

expressed his tlianks for the honor

which had been done him, and his

sense of the novelty of the occasion.

Dr. Warren and his family will re­

move to Rehoboth Beach, Del., near

Frederlca, where he was bora in 1859.

At the age of sixteen he preached his

first sermon at Barrett's CUiapel, Del.,

which Is linown as the cradle of Meth­

odism iu America, it being the spot

where Bishop Coke and Asbury first

held communion before attending the

conference across Cheaspeake Bay on

Christmas night, 17B4, at which the

church was founded.

As a youth Dr. Warren taught school

during the week and walked 0 miles

to hold three services in church on

Sundays, doing this for six years be­

fore he was ordained. His pastorates,

in two conferences include those of

Union Methodist Church, New York,

three years; Centenary Methodist

Church, in the Bronx, two years; the

old Eighteenth Street Methodist

Church, Malmttau, nine years; St.

To Lose Is to Win.

The expresson, "To lose is to win,"

has undoubtedly been used many timss

beforf, but the events both local and

national that have occurred in the past

two weeks have prompted tas to com­

ment as we see the light.

News of the kidnapping of the Lind­

bergh's child Is still foremost In the

mind of every true American as be

or s}ie picks up the daily paper. But

the big shock to the straight thinking

Americans came when the Lindberghs

were forced to stoop to the racketeers

for assistance. How have the great

majority of American people reacted

toward connecting Lindbergh with

racketeers? To say the words in the

same breath makes your blood bolL

Ttien It comes out in bold type that

the root of the racketeering evil, and

its cause is PROHIBrnoN. Thousands

of prayers have been said to bring

back the Lindbergh child, but not one

prayer has probably been said to re­

peal the 18th Amendment that we

have record of. It Is hard to imagine

an American citizen praying to the

Lord for him to act on the racketeers

to bring back the Lindbergh child.

Where was the child .found that was

kidnapped out In Ohio a few days ago?

He was standing on bags filled with

bootleg whiskey. It Is a glaring fact

that the undersrorld has secured its

tremendous power throu^ the sale

of beer and whiskey, and today and

every day people who have been ar­

dent drys are Jumping on the wet

plank.' By-ttre time another year rolls

by the wet plank will have sufficient

strength to carry the opinion of the

great majority of American people to

victory. One well thinking woman in

Brewster thought that kidnapping of

the Lindbergh baby was an act of

Qod to tell us that our prohibition law

was all wrong. A prominent minister of

the gospel spoke over tlie radio only

a few dag's ago and stated that the

kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby re­

acted upon him as a man beating his

head against a brick wall and that he

liad finally been aroused to the folly

of prohibition.

The first roll call on prohibition In

Washington, though a loss in actual

count of votes. Is recorded as a victory

for the wets. After the election this

fall the House of Representatives will

be swamped with wet votes.

We wish to take this opportunity to

congratulate our Congressmafi, Hon.

Hamilton Fish, Jr., and to tell him

that we will be with him to the last

ditch on the subject of repealing the

18th Amendment and any other sound,

sane, sensible questions.

The loss of George Nickerson to the

Volunteer Fire Company of Pawling

is another example of "To lose is to

win." His untimely death has prompt­

ed the Village Board of Brewster to

Insure the Village of Brewster against

death or disability suO^ered or alleg­

ed to have been suffered by any mem­

ber of the Brewster Volunteer Pire

Department during the term of the

IKtlicy, wiiich was taken out with tlie

Indemnity Insurance Company of

North America, the oldest American

Company of its kind in the United

States, founded in 1792. Birdsall T.

Mannhig is the agent for the above

mentioned company and the agent

tlirough whom the Village of Brewster

secured the policy last Monday. Be­

fore tills article is published the Brew­

ster Pire Department will hold a policy

of a similar nature and before the end

of the month 6ui»;i'Visor Ekstrom will

call a si>eclal meeting of the Town

Board for the purixise of insuring the

Town of Southeast for the same rea­

son as mentioned. The policy in ques­

tion will cost the taxpayers approxi­

mately $2&U per year.

of Jesse Yearance, well known driver

In harness races, occurred at White

years a familiar figure on the race

track at Danbury Fair.

Mrs. Isabel Wilson Horlon.

day, March 12. She Is survived by her

Some taxpayers are asltlng this ques­

tion. Virhy is it necessary for fire CMn-

panles to hold carnivals, suppers,

dances and other forms of money-

making schemes In order to finance the

fire company? Lately we have heard a

number say that 11 a tax were levied

on all property owners In the Town

of Southeast and Village of Brewster

that it would do away with this con­

stant begging for fire funds. The Vil­

lage of Pleasantvllle has a fire tax

sufficient to cover the cost of its vol­

unteer fire department. Members of

tliat department never have to sell

tickets or go around from house to

house begging for funds. We heard a

business man remark that he thought

it would be wise to have the Brewster

Volunteer Fire Company supported by

the Town and Village combined and

to have a man stationed at the fire

house night and day, 365 days in the

year, also a proper building to htmse

tlie apparatus and not. an eyesore and

a fire trap. His thought is worthy of

c'onsidertion and before another year

rolls by a plan sliould be worked out

lo satisfy tlie desire of all at less ex­

pense. The average family in Brewster

and the Town of Southeast sjiends

double tlie amount on dance tickets,

supper tickets and carnivals compared

with the amount of tax they would

huve to pay lo support their fire com-

jiuny by taxation. Patterson, Pawling,

Carmel and many other towns will con­

sider such a tax before another year

or two rolls by.

About fourteen years have passed

since the publication of the ^NiM of

the late William Andrew Ferris In­

formed his fellow townsmen that some

public place in the Village of Brew­

ster would, after the death of Mrs.

Ferris, be marked by a monument In

memory of the soldiers and sailors of

the Civil War who belonged to the

Crosby Post of the Grand Army of the

Republic. Mrs. Ferris died August 9,

1028, and since that time Edward D.

Stannard, executor of Mr. Ferris' will

has carried out the wishes and direc­

tions of Mr. Ferris In various connec­

tions, the latest accomplishment being

the building of Brewster Public Libr­


In considering a site for the monu­

ment Mr. Stannard in 1918 requested

the opinion of the late Major Frank

Wells, Commander of Crosby Post, O.

A. R. At that time Major Wells Indi­

cated his choice would be to locate the

monument near the bank. He pointed

out, however, that traffic conditions

might change and make It undesirable

to place the monument on Main street.

Recently Mr. Stannard requested

Henry H. Wells, J. Henry Ekstrom

and Daniel Brandon to act as a com­

mittee to select a site for the monu­

ment and assist him in carrying out

the provisions of the will. Their report

on the matter of the site shows them

to be unanlinously in favor of the

triangular plot of ground near the

Electrozone Field. This location Is

very desirable for the open spaces sur­

rounding it, wide roadways and the

city property that will probably con­

tinue the appearance of a public park.

A monument on this site will be seen

by many people, and erected in a well

kept park it will give beauty and dig­

nity to this important entrance to the

village. The site cannot be definitely

settled until Mr. Stannard and the

officials of the village have obtained

The Budd Hotel, Peeksklll, Is soon

to fall before the march of progress.

Workmen are scheduled to start to

wreck the once famous hostelry. Axes,

pinchlmrs and other tools of the work­

ers will soon be echoing through ^e

big. frame structure of eighty rooms

as first the roof, then the upper floors

and then the sldewalls are torn apart.

It Is expected that much of the lum­

ber win have resale value, despite the

fact that the building is about a hun­

dred years old.

The property Is now owned by Cor­

nelius A. Pugsley. who intends to cut

a street through from Main street to

Park street, a distance of about 275

feet. This development will open a

near area for mercantile use directly

in the heart of the business district.

Mr. Pugsley already owns all of the

necessary land on Park street. The ho­

tel pro[>erty adjoins the Westehester

County National Bank on the east.

family where there are two or more

small children and the parents find It

necessary to buy extra Standards to get

the pictures for the kiddles to color

we would like to have an expression

from fathers and mothers in regard to

the expense of buying extra papers In

order to amuse their children. If they

feel It Is worth an extra nickle for the

sake of amusing the child and we find

that enough extra papers are being

sold to warrant this color contest week­

ly we will continue to run It.

known to welcome plans for beautify­

an ontlaw, bnt In so far as Jewels are

concerned be has relatively little to

worry nbont

The "question of the Spanish crown

Jewels," or the "mystery of the Spanish

crown jewels," bobs up every now

and then In the press of Europe and

especially In British newspapers, but

tho whole thing Is not as complicated

as alt of that

, As a matter of fact, for all practical

purposes, there are no notable

Spanish crown Jewels. American tourists,

who cross to Europe and gaze

In astonishment at British crown

Jewels In the tower of London, with

equal amaeement learned upon arriving

here In the days of the monarchy

that there were no Spanish

crown Jewels to be seen. They could

go to the royal armory and see possibly

the greatest collection of medieval

armor In the world, and If

they were lucky they might manage

to see the throne room at the palace,

which Is as gorgeous as anything of

Its Und any^vhere. But Spain never

has had any Jewels to show off.

When Don Alfonso left Spain last

April 14 he naturally left his crown

behind. Rut that was only a small

thing, with a few pearls and diadems.

He was crowned with It In

1902, but never wore It after that, and

on formal openings of parliament and

anch occasions It remained on a cush-

Ibn with the scepter, the scepter being

an object of much more value

than the crown.

\Vhl1e the Spanish crown and the

king had no exceptionally valuable

Jewelry, the queen personalty did own

many Important Jewels of various

sorts. Queen Victoria Eugenia was

the Princess Victoria Eugenia of Battenberg

(Princens Ena), granddnughter

of Qneen Victoria, and niece of

King Edward VIT. The deficiency of

the Spanish crown Jewels was made

np for at the time of her marriage

to King Alfonso In 1000 by regal

presents from King Edward and other

relatives and sovereigns.

A Kainy Day

Was Botneone knocking on the door

of Unde Lucky^i little white house on

the comer of Lettuce avenue and Oarrot

yes, three times. Maybe somebody has

been knocking ever since last week's

story, for Robbie Redvest tells me that

on account of a bad attack of rheumatlms

in his left hind toe, the dear old

gentleman rabbit has grown quite deaf.

Well, anyway, when Uncle Lucky opened

the door, who do you Uiink was

standing on the mat? You'll never

guess even if I told you he had on rubber

boots and held a green umbrella in

his hand.

It was Daddy Longlegs. Yea, sir. that's

who it was.

"Goodness gracious meebtist" exclaimed

the old gentleman rabUt, "Are

you wet?"

"Soaked to the skin," replied the

shivering, rubber-booted, long-legged

insect, "let me sit by the stove and

warm myself-^naybe ril get dry in an


"Ckime rigjit Inl" cried dear, kind

Uncle Lucky, leading the way into the

as he helped Daddy I/mglegB pull off

stretching out his cold, da&u> toes:

'I love the cheerful flre

And though It Is so Und.

Pretty soon, Vtte Old Red Rooster

Uncle Lucky slipped his feet into his

his gold rimmed spectacles on his

While the fire's cheerful glow

Warmed his poor rheumatic toe.

Her name ttiey say was Williams, "Fair

She lived along a winding road, where

fields and farm lands lay.

Her cot was at the mountain's base, a

Pink roses rambled o'er the wall and

honeysuckle sweet

Climbed o'er the well that stood In

Its acoms faintly showing.

And out the west as daylight waned,

a breeze was gently blowing.

Nathaniel, husband, drove the cows

down thru the barn-yard gate,

He Just had time the bars to close,

for it was getting late.

Quoth Mistress Mary, as they sat

around the hearth that night,

"A stranger happened past this mom;

he said we ought to fight.

The Colonies were greatly taxed,"—he

spoke with Indignation,—

And how could we stand by and yield

with placid resignation."'

A righteous fire was In her eye, she ,Baw

Until they Joined the British cause:—

Theirs was an act of treason 1

And soon Nathaniel, husband—all,

once before to settle the championship

and tied 33 to 33 and last night the

knot was tied tighter by a score of

10 to 10; 80 the officials have temporarily

Thirty members of the Brewster

Fire Department attended the funeral

of George Nickerson in the Pawling

Central Baptist churcli Sunday noon.

In fact every fire company that answered

the flre call at Pawling last week

Thursday was represented or sdat

flowers. Old inhabitants of that village

believe it was the largest funeral ever

held in the town of Pawling. The

church was so crowded that those who

did not faint were Just on the i>olnt

of fainting when the services were over.

Inteiment took place in Phllmoot,

where Mr. Nlckerson was bom.

two or three points. The Brewster girls

ofl^er no alibis, but the public should

know this. Brewster was not allowed

to practice before the game on the

Bediford co^rt and Katonah's team

practiced there on two or three occasions

before this deciding game. That

was the poorest example of sportsmanship

displayed by the league authorities

throughout the year. The referee

was hand picked by Mr. Covey who

runs Northern Westchester League to

suit himself and his home town. Katonah.

Regardless of the score It was a moral

victory for the Brewster girls, a team

composed of the shortest basketball

players to show championship calibre

that have ever appeared on courts

within a thirty mile radius of Brewster.

True enough, the Brewster girls

had more chances to win this game

and in the last minute of play after

Captain Relyea had tied the score with

a field goal, Miss Hughes shot a beautiful

field goal with only 10 seconds

to play, but the referee called a foul

which forced Miss Hughes to take two

free shots at the peak of excitement

She missed both tries. It was a heart

breaker for her, but the Brewster crowd

gave her a Uig cheer. So considering

the "band picked" conditions Brewster

had to contend with they can consider

^themselves undisputed champs

of the Northern Westchester League.

The game was marked by a series

of whistle blows. If whistle noises were

pennies everybody who attended that

game would be a millionaire today.

LetlilatiiK Cuts Appropriation Needed

Most Oo Over to 19S3. ' ' tt

Work on the Eastern States parkway,

which was to be partly completed

In Putnam county Uils year with

rough grading extended Into Dutchess,

was dcclslTcly brought to a halt

when the legislature ended Its session

in Albany with the hoped for $400,000

appropriation etlll in committee.

Paul T. Winslow. executive chairman

of the Taconlc State Park commlsdon,

explained that the failure of

the bill will mean that work on the

parkway will be brought to a halt and

the employment of approximately 600

men affected.

"However, we are not martyrs," he

said, "All of the commissions of the

state were similarly treated."

Inasmuch as Westchester county

still retains enough money from last

year's appropriations to complete Its

section of the parkway to the Putnam

county line it had been thought

that the legislature would provide

funds for the work to go on through

Putnam and into this county.

At present Mr. Winslow explained.

there is a Ave and a half mile strip

of rough graded parkway In Putnam

coimty which was to have been concreted

this spring. That area will

now have to lay dormant until 1033

when It is hoped an appropriation

will, be forthcoming.

"The legislature," he said, "apparently

doesn't realise that during that

time that piece of thoroughfare will

have depreciated. It will have to be

entirely rolled and re-treated again

next year and that'will mean an added

expenditure of several thousands

of dollars."

The program for this year had provided

for the concreting of the parkway

to a point about six miles north

of the Putnam county line, rough

Mr. Hampton provided In his will:

"I desire and direct that my remains

be cremated and that the simplest, least

expensive casket be used. The funeral

services are to be of the simplest possible

character; Jhere is to be no

mournful music, no flowers, no eulogy.

After my body Is cremated the ashes

are to be thrown to the winds immediately.

There is to be no monument

or table, or funeral urn, nor anything

of any sort. I request that no one wear

mourning because of my death.

"I hereby request my children not

to make a Journey not more than 200

miles for the purpose of attending my

funeral. If my wife wishes tiielr presence

for her consolation, she will advise

them, and I know they will gladly

respond, but I want them to avoid a

long Journey to attend my funeral and
