— lt is always well to consult the adver
tising columns of The Union. They are pa
tronized by the public generally and those

know what they have for sale, etc., nearly
always find the results satisfactory.

out bis fifth year as a pastor of Epsom Metho
dist Protestant Church, Towson, and in that

a letter to the Countv Commissioneas in which
he says that if the bill now before the Leg is- v
lature, providing for an additional teacher t
when the pupils in a school exceed 30 instead i
of 40. as at present, that the annual cost of r
maintaining the schools will be increased at 3
least *25,000. If this is so it would simply be i
an outrage on the people. This is a matter !
that should be looked after at once.

Queer Things About the Delinquent
Subscriber.— Tbe delinquent subscriber, like
the procrastinator who never does that today
which he can put off till tomorrow, is always
getting the "worst of it.” An Arizona editor
puts the case thus : "Last week a delinquent
subscriber said he would pay up if he lived till
Saturday. He died. Another said, T will see
vou tomorrow.’ He went blind that night.
Still another said, ‘I will pay you this week or
go to the devil.’ He’s gone!” This reminds
us of an experience we had with a delinquent
subscriber a eonple of years ago, says an ex
change. The panic had “struck” him prettv
hard and while he was unable to pay in ad
vance, he wanted us to continue sending the
paper and he "would pay as soon as he
threshed his oats.” It was then oats harvest.
Not hearing from him we "called him up” in
about six months, reminding him of his prom
ise and he promptly replied that he had “fed
the oats up, 9traw and all 1” Well, tbe next
spring, when he was putting out another crop
of oats, a peskish mule which he had fed lib
erally all winter on oats, “straw and all,”
kicked him in the stomach and he has been
an angel ever since 1
Report of the Late Grand Jury.— The
Grand Jury for the March term of court ad
journed on the 16th inst., after a session of ten
days. They reported that during their sitting
they docketed 40 cases, found 17 true bills and
dismissed 28 cases, and released 8 prisoners
from jail. They visited the jail and found 16
prisoners serving sentences and awaiting trial.
They recommend that the law allowing con
stables $2.50 per day to appear before the grand
jury be repealed; that the bill before the Leg
islature establishing a road engineer should
not become a law; that the bill before the
General Assembly to require the County Com
missioners to keep within the appropriation
for each specific item be enacted into a law.
They also advise the increase in the appropria
tions asked for the offices of the Sheriff and
Treasurer of Baltimore county, and also favor
the proposed change in regard to the length of
the term of the County Commissioners from
six years to two years.
Sporty Cockeysville Again.—A dispatch
from Cockeysville to the Baltimore American,
dated March 22d, says: "A sparring contest
for points took place under the auspices of the
West End Athletic Club to-nigbt at the Odd
Fellows’ Hall, between Danny Hill, of West
Baltimore, and John Thompson, of Texas,
Baltimore county, for the championship of
Baltimore county and gate receipts. The men
sparred at 140 pounds weight, using six-ounce
gloves. A preliminary contest, consisting of
ten rounds, between Raymond Coates and
Henry Latimore, took place to decide the
heavy-weight championship of West Balti
more. The latter bout was declared a draw.
Of the regular sparring contest Thompson won
in four rounds, using his opponent up badly
in twelve minutes. Charles Altvator, of Balti
more, was referee, and Jerry Hill, time-keeper.
Chief A. T. Streett and Officers Moore and
Scott were present. About two hundred were
present.”
i Fork, 11th District.—Fork Improvement
Association held last Saturday, 17th inst., its
annual meeting and elected Mr. John Arthur,
’ president, and Mr. W. P. Reckord, secretary
and treasurer. The meeting was well attended.
The business of importance to be considered
was the proper improvement of the road from
this place to Baldwin Station, B. & L. R. R.
A committee of five—Messrs. John Arthur,
W. P. Reckord, I). H. Harlan, George W.
Yellott and Dr. James F. H. Gorauch—was ap
pointed to confer with the County Commis
sioners and Mr. Frank Kearney, road super
visor, with a view to having the bed properly
graded and widened where needed before the
stone is placed thereon. Mr. H. J. Lilly has
consented to have the road widened along bis
property from near Watkins’ corner, a distance
of about a-half mile. This is needed much as
wagons cannot pass in a number of places.
The association wants the road bed graded so
as to make it high in the middleand sloping to
each side; then rolled well before applying
the crushed stone. When this is done it re
quires less material and tbe road will then
stand for years, as the water falling upon it
goes down through the stone to the hard dirt
and runs off to each side, whereas if this is
not done and the stone put on the road with
out being properly rounded up, the water lays
under the stone, saturates tne dirt and the
stone and the mud work up, making a con
tinuation of holes or long ruts. This plan is
the common way of putting stone on nearly
all roads in the county.
We have the best piece of road in the State,
constructed by Prof. Harrison, of the Govern
ment Road Commission, being a-half mile in
length between Kingsville and this place. This
was built in 1898 and Fork Improvement As
sociation was the means of having it done.
The part of the road starting from Fork was
stoned without being properly graded, and it is
continually getting full of holes and has water
lying in the middle. There isanother piece of
sample road in front of Shirley Hall, construc
ted a number of years ago. It is properly gra
ded, high in the middle and is as good today as
when made, nothing having been done to it
since. Just below, between the hall and this
Rlace, tbe road bed was left level and stoned
i this w ay and It la always getting full of
boles.
It is poor economy to macadamize a road
improperly. It appears that few who have
charge of the roads in tbe different districts
have observed these facts, but keep on in the
old way—putting stone in mud holes.
The County Commissioners should agree to
break and apply all stone given to the county.
In this way each farmer could have a good
road in front of his property by hauling the
stone when needed, instead of dumping them
into fence corners where they prevent him
from properly cleaning his fence rows. Two
objects could thus be accomplished—good roads
and neat farms.
The countv should cease buying stone and
let the people in each community who want
good roads give them, as did those living along
the old Belair road from Kingsville to the Har
rord county line. They not only gave the
stone but also subscribed money to help pay
to break them. Nearly all of these people are
thrifty Germans and they appreciate a good
thing.
Mr. Leonard Hoelzer, an aged tailor living
at Watkins’ corner for many years, was buried
at Fork M, E. Church on Tuesday.
Rev. Charles E. Guthrie, of Baltimore, will
lecture in Fork M. E. Church, Thursday even
ing, 29th instant. Subject—" People We Nev
er Meet.” This is a fine lecture and all should
hear it. Mr. Guthrie is one of the principal
opponents in Baltimore to the changing of
the present Sunday law.
Fork Literary and Debating Society, at its
last meeting, discussed the question, “Resolv
ed, That no person should be convicted upon
circumstantial evidence.” Decided in the af
firmative. Itseemsto beafact that men should
not be convicted upon purely circumstantial
evidence, as many cases are of record where
the innocent have suffered and the guilty gone
free. R.
Sherwood, N. R. R. R.—The past week
the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone
Company has been removing the old polls
through this section and replacing them with
heavier and taller ones, the old poles being
too light to carry the increased number of wires.
Mr. Denis Carter, of Baynesville, is furnishing
the new poles. Last week Mr. Carter shipped
from this station some very large white oak
trees to New York city, where they will be
used in the erection of piers. These trees
measured from 50 to 60 feet in length and it
was necessary to lash two cars together to
carry them.
Mr. Herbert Talbott, second boss of this di
vision of the Northern Central Railway, is
confined to his home here with an attack of
rheumatism.
The heavy snow of last week made fine
sleighing in this section and many enjoyed it
but the sport was of short duration, due to a
rapidly rising temperature. The sudden thaw
has left some of our roads in wretched condi
tion.
Charles Coale, son of Mr. Charles H. Coale,
of this place, who was reported some time ago
thnr>of his recovery was entertained.
Mr. Joseph Smith, day watchman at Sher
wood crossing, who was reported sick at his
home in Lutherville, returned to his work but
was again taken sick and was obliged to give
up again.
Mr. I. M. Parr, Jr., is having an artesian
well bored on the property lately purchased
by his father, Mr. Henry A. Parr, from Mr.
Henry Kellogg. It is said that a fine summer
residence will be erected on this tractfor young
Mr. Parr. The site is located between the res
idences of Mr. T. Edward Hambleton and
Mr. Kellogg. , .
Mr. E. W. Levering, whose summer home
is located at Sherwood, and who was very sick
at his residence in Baltimore, is much im
proved. He was obliged to undergo an opera
tion at the Eye and Ear Hospital.
Mr. Francis T. Homer, of this place, who
was called away to Europe on professional
business, is not expected home until the latter
part of April. He is a member of the Balti
more law firm of Willis & Homer. T.
Long Green, 11th District.—The snow of
Thursday, 15th inst., made the best sleighing
of the past winter and it continued until Mon
day morning when the snow disappeared very
rapidly under a warm rain. Sleighs were
much in demand and even bob sleds were
called out. One of the latter, with a team of
four, took a party of young people to the lyce
um at Fork on Friday night.
Mr. Peter Nafzinger has relinquished farm
ing, having rented his farm to his son, Mr.
Moses Nafzinger. Mr. Nafzinger came here
from Pennsylvania when a young man oyer
fifty years ago and bought the farm on which
he still resides. t . .
Mr. Eugene Rinehart has bought 20 head of
cows, farm implements and provender from
Mr. A. G. Jones, a retail milk dealer in Balti
more who formerly rented a farm nearGatch’s
Church, on the Belair road, and has removed
tbe same to the farm of his father-in-law, Mr.
Alexander Francis, from which he will supply
Mr. Jones with milk for his route in the city. c
A meeting of taxpayers and others interested r
in the improvement of tbe road leading from j
Long Groen Station to the Dulany’s Valley f
Sike has been called for Saturday evening, j
larch 24th. at 7.30 o’clock, at Slade’s shops.
Unionville. Through an earnest and active
movement we are encouraged to believe the
improvement of the road can be effected. All J
interested should make it a point to be at this I
ra The n family of Mr. A. G. Kolk are just re
covering from an attack of tonsilitis, every
member having been affected.
Mrs. Bernard Bowers has returned home •
after having spent the winter in the city with
her daughter, Mrs. J. E. Rufenacht.
No doubt Mr. Solomon Yoder will be at the I
road meeting above referred to as his team,

land. He says: “I do recommend that the
dav be devoted by the people of this State to
the planting of trees, and I especially recom
mend to parents and teachers in our schools
that they encourage their children or those
under their influence to plant or transplant at
least one forest shade tree on that day by the
side of a public road or about their school house
and that they be urged to study the habits and
needs of our birds and their young, with a
view to their preservation and increase. It is
hoped by the observation of this custom to
■ . .-l • i _ nr* a _ n „„Uir<r> feom thn
counteract the evil effects resulting from the
rapid destruction of forests and birds in our
State and to maintain a due proportion of
forest land, which is essential to the comfort,

Kiintee, who previously held the office, is a

for every SI,OOO returned.
Clifton Park, Harford Road.—Mr. Noah
F Flitton, superintendent of Clifton Park,
has made a number ot improvements on the

Sast two weeks. The road leading from the
lansion House past the greenhouses has been
widened about eight feet. The footpath on
the side of the road has been taken away, the
flower beds having been moved back to effect
this change. This will give a wide drive
through a pretty part of the park, which was
not much used formerly on account of the
narrowness of the road. Similar improve
ments have been made in other parts ot the
park.— Sun.

ings.—On Wednesday the County Commis
sioners heard the petition of Ruth Ann Ensor

to SSOO damages for the part of her land that
would be required to open the road, and that
the examiners only allowed her SSO. Mrs.

Opposition to the New Road Law —Let-
ter From Delegate Stewart.—This week
the Countv Commissioners received a letter
from Mr. Redmond 0. Stewart, member of the
House of Delegates, informing them that the
new road law had passed the House. Mr.
Stewart said: , TI .
“The proposed road law passed the House ot
Delegates last Thursday night, with the un
derstanding that it should not go into effect
until January Ist, 1901. If the law passes I
think you will find that it has much in it
which will assist you in making your admin
istration a success. My object in writing this
note is to ask you, if the law does pass, to re
serve criticism of the same, as far as you feel
justified in doing, until I have time, after the
adjournment of the Legislature, to go over the
whole matter carefully with you. Certainly I
have no desire, as I have shown, to go against
your wishes.”
The members of the Board say they are op
posed to the law ; they bad been opposed to it
all along, and are opposed to it now; that it
made one of the highest paid offices in the
county an appointive office; that it was com
bersome and would prove to be extravagant
and expensive, and that, as far as they went,
they had done all that they could do to pre
vent its enactment, but to no avail.
The bill has since been passed by the Senate
and now awaits the Governor’s signature.

Meeting.— The annual meeting of the Mt.
Washington Improvement Association was

■ it ! i 1 4Ln pi a] n
daring the year in the way of keeping the side
walks and drivewavs in good condition and
the building of additional sidewalks. The as
sociation voted to continue the addition of 20
cents on the tax rate in Mt. Washington for
placing hard material on the roads and side-
Tbis association has issued a beautifully
printed little pamphlet setting forth the advan
tages of life at Mt. Washington. It is illus
trated with half-tone reproductions of pic
turesque bits of scenery and the homes of some
pf-the residents. These include those of
George A. Hoyden, Gen. Thomas J. Shryock,
Omer F. Hirshey, Dr. William J. Todd, John
If. Carter. Charles Harvey. E. J. Penniman,

In the Court of Appeals.—ln the Mary
land Court of Appeals on Wednesday Judge
Schmucker rendered a decision in the case of
James Moses against Edward M. Allen. Jr.,
which brought up for review the action of the
Circuit Court for Baltimore county, Moses, a
manufacturer in New Jersey, made a contract
with Allen fora lease and ultimate sale of a
• flint mill and quarry in Harford county, the
general scheme was that appellee, Allen,
should rent the quarry, and Moses was to buy
! for five years the output and retain a certain
sum each year out of amounts due Allen as
l the price of the property. Allen insisted that
Moses was under obligation to take 800 tons of
1 flint a year, but he only purchased 738 tons in
three vears. Allen sued for a breach of con
‘ tract and attached the flint mill and quarry.
( Moses excepted especially to fourth prayer of
• Allen, which was granted by the court, to the
effect that if Moses could have sold under
smaller profits it deprives him of excuse for
7 failure to purchase more of the flint than he
• did. The court finds no error in this ruling,
5 and affirms the judgment below for Allen.
1 The Great Tyson Fortune.—A dispatch
from San Francisco to the Philadelphia Times
; says: “Eliza Tyson, one year and one month
ago, was a dependent in the family of a Hum
boldt county rancher. She is now in this
. city hiding from notoriety. She has been
I confirmed the heiress to $13,000,000, left by
“Old Tvson,” as eccentric a millionaire as ever
hoarded gold. She is a plain-faced little Scotch
girl, who has scarcely recovered from her
e wonder over her succession to so great a for
[- tune. She says the money doesn’t do her as
s much good as it would were her parents alive,
[- but she is going to try to make many people
a in her old horns happy.” ,
d This is the same fortune that a number of
e Baltimore county Tysons, represented by Mr,
James J. Lindsay, were making an effort to
s recover, claiming relationship to Old Tyson.
t. If the San Francisco dispatch is correct their
chance of recovering any part of the estate is
very slim.

The Road Question Always With Us.—
On Wednesday last Mr. Lewis M. Bacon, of
the Bth district, went before the County Com
missioners and, in a conversational way, dis
cussed the road problem—something id which
our people are always deeply interested. He
said he was in favor of the employment of an
engineer to lay out and shape the highways
ana thus get up a sentiment in every commu
nity in favor of better roads. He was opposed
to the appointment of a road engineer at a
salary of from $3,000 to $4,000 a year, but a
competent man, he thought, could be gotten
at a salary of from SI,OOO to $1,200 a year who
could also serve as bridge superintendent. The
County Surveyor could readily serve as such
engineer. He also thought that in addition to
his salary of from SI,OOO to $1,200 the road en
gineer should have a reserve fund of SSOO to be
used in cases of emergency.
Mr. Slade suggested that improvement asso
-1 ciations in each community would aid mate
rially in securing good roads.
Mr. Taylor said that he had been requested
by the Fork Improvement Association to stop
the road supervisor of the 11th district from
placing stones upon the roads at this time,
1 when they sink so far down as to be soon
j out of sight.

A Picture That is Highly Prized.—Dr.
William J. Todd, of Mount Washington, has
an old picture of the Bare Hill copper mines
and a portion of Mount Washington, which he
prizes very highly. The scene was taken from
a point on the Falls road, near the Jorthern
Central Railway, many years ago, when the
copper mines were in operation. Many of the
buildings about the works and a portion of the
works have since been destroyed. In the pic
ture is an engine passing on the railway,
drawing two freight cars. Wood was then
used instead of coal. — Baltimore Sun.

Standing to His Guns. fi
Philadelphia North American. g'
Mr. Bryan sticks to 16 to 1 because he is a
practical, a very practical, politician. By his
j ' ‘’ " "* ' r * r ’ m ' m "’••"os conse
approval ftor the judgement wfttth move* uiui .
to die politically rather than surrender. Mr. 1
Bryan counts on this sentiment as a partial ]
offset to the weariness inspired by his tiresome ;
iteration of his silver arguments, which at best
can now have only an academic interest for
anybody who understands the monetary situ
ation. 'But his motive for persistence is not -
to win the respect that goes to a steadfast fa- 1
natic. It is much more practical than that.
Mr. Bryan now has every Democratic boss of j
importance in the United States for him, and
his control of the machinery of his party is 5
absolute. Machinery needs oil to keep it in
running order—that is to say, money is re- 1
quired, a great deal of money. Where is Mr.
Bryan to get it ? The business interests of the (
country are hostile to him, and rich men have
been driven out of the party. Only one opu- i
lent class remains faithful—the silver mine
owners, the men who have bullion to sell and
would like the Government to try to double its
price by the kind of legislation which Mr.
Bryan favors.
The Dog Nuisance in Virginia.
A letter from Fredericksburg, Va., says:
“The dog question, which has frightened
many out of the sheep industry, and agitated
everybody more or less in all the surrounding
country, has just been settled in Westmore
-1 land county by the board of supervisors fear
’ lessly tackling it and imposing a tax of fifty
1 cents on all male and $1 on all female dogs,
’ and $2 on each additional female dog owned
’ bv the same person. Just before the board
was called to order Dr. R. H. Stewart, a lead
-1 ing citizen of that county, arrived and an
-1 nounced a heavy loss sustained bv him the
1 night previous by dogs that raided his sheep
} pasture and killed nineteen of his flock. The
1 dog population of Westmoreland is figured at
1 4,000. The sheep killed annually by them and
} eggs and young towls destroyed is estimated at
‘ $2,000. In the adjoining county of King
1 George it is said there are 1,200 dogs, and the
destruction of sheep and other property in
‘ that county is also very great.”
. Representative Denny All Right.
? Baltimore Newt.
1 Congressman James W. Denny, of Balti
-1 more, put himself squarely on record in the
1 vote on the gold-standard bill in the House of
Representatives. He might have dodged be-
hind some objection to the bill, of greater or
less importance, and let the vote go by with
out his name, but that is evidently not Mr.
Denny’s idea of public duty. He voted for
the gold-standard bill, and thereby cut him
self off completely from the privileges and im
munities attaching to the members of the
noble army of double-faces. Mr. Denny had
in reality, of course, done this long ago, and
repeatedly, but the vote of yesterday was a
clincher. He may rest assured that his straight
forward and manly course on the currency
question will be thoroughly appreciated by
his fellow-citizens, of all parties and of all
ways of thinking on the money question.
To “Down” the Mosquitoes.
A letter from Winchester, Va., says: “One
of the most unique laws ever passed here will
shortly go into effect. It provides for the ex
termination of the mosquitoes. Ten years ago
no mosquitoes existed in the city, but now
the town is infested with them. The City
Council passed a law requiring every property
holder, under the supervision of the police, to
pour kerosene oil on every open pool, sink or
drain, and that every open rain barrel sha l
have the spigot at the bottom of the barrel.
This will be done at least once a month. The
law is the result of experiments made by the
United States Government, and is the only
known method of thoroughly exterminating
mosquitoes. The kerosene oil kills the germ
of the mosquito, which is deposited by the
female on the surface of pools and sinks.’
The "Uncertainty of Life.”
Baltimore News.
In one of the Baltimore churches a few
Sunday nights ago, the subject of the dis
course by a visiting clergyman was the “Un
certainty of Life.” In the midst of the ser
mon a messenger came with a communication
for two young people in the congregation, and
they hastily left the church. At the conclu
sion of the sermon the pastor of the church
announced that word bad just been received
of the death of a lady on ner way to attend
the services. She had been present in the
morning, and, feeling perfectly well, had left
home to go to church again at night. W hen
within two or three blocks she had fallen dead
on the street. The two young people sum
moned were her sons.
The Real Definition of a Lie.
Indianapolis Journal.
Perhaps as good a definition of a lie as any
is that it is asserting or representing, orally, in
writing or by signs, as true that which the
person Knows to be untrue, from a culpable in
tention to deceive or mislead. There is reason
to fear that even under this stringent definition
a great many persons will continue to lie.
LARGEST FARM IN THE WORLD.
Indianapolit ( Ind.) Letter.
The largest farms in Indiana—one of them
the largest of its kind in the world—are strung
along through the northern part of Jasper and
Newton counties and the southern part of
Lake county. The largest of these farms is
the B. F. Gifford tract, which, by recent addi
tions, now consists of 32,000 acres. It is doubt
less the largest body of land ever held by one
individual in Indiana. There have been larger
farms, but they have been held by firms or
men representing the centralized interests of
others. From the view-point of the large
farms of the West the Gifford farm is not so
notably large. But in Indiana, where a farm
er that has from 80 to 160 acres is considered in
good circumstances, the size of this large hold
ing is enomons.
In one respect the Gifford farm is a notable
one compared to any tract. It is the largest
cultivated swamp farm in the world. It was
only ten years ago that the section which Mr.
Gifford is now converting into pastures and
vegetable and grain-producing land, was a
series of marshes, pools and lakes—a part of
the Kankakee swamps. Mr. Gifford had pre
viously developed a great tract similar to this
near Champaign, 111. When Mr. Gifford first
conceived the idea of converting a portion of
the Kankakee lands in Indiana to agricultural
purposes he acquired at a nominal price about
ten thousand acres. He then bought two
dredges, similar to those used by the Govern
ment in its river dredging. The dredges were
put to cutting large ditches, almost the size of
small rivers. This work has been going on
night and day for years, and now there are
8,000 acres in a high state of cultivation. The
last year the tallest corn, and probably the
best in Indiana, was raised on this tract. In
stead of fences Mr. Gifford has waterways be
tween pastures. He has seventy-five miles of
large ditches through the farm, and has thous
ands of miles of smaller ditches. In addition
to this he is now putting in drain tile. The
soil taken from the ditch beds has been shovel
ed back over the fields, and thus the fields
have been raised little by little as the ditching
work- weul-tm. ~Tbe .iorV 1., rtill l guhqj un; -■ ■ -
but it will take years to put all the tract into
cultivation.
Mr. Gifford has between 300 and 400 tene
ment houses on the farm and the population
is probably 2,000 people. He has a spur to the
farm from the nearest railway, and ships his
products direct to the markets. The land,
when in a state of cultivation, is as productive
as any in Indiana, and is worth from SSO to
$75 an acre. It cost Mr. Gifford from $1 to
$1.50 an acre.
Election of United States Senator.
Frederick Examiner.
No change in the method of electing Senators
can ever bring about the proposed result of
the change until there is awakened in the
minds of the honest people an interest in pub
lic affairs, a proper sense of their duty, and a
determination to see that only men of their
own class are intrusted with (he conduct of
the public’s business. When such feelings are
aroused, and when the whole people perform
their duty as citizens, then, and only then,
will corruption be driven from politics. When
the people elect honest men to their State
Legislatures, then will we have honestly elec
ted Senators under the present method, a state
of things so easily accomplished if men would
interest themselves in public affairs and ex
ercise the duties of citizenship.
This Year’s Vote 15,000,000.
New York Suit. *
Since the Presidential election of four years
ago there has been a large increase in the pop
ulation. of the United States. No states, it is *
true, have been added to the number which
are to participate, but woman suffrage has been
extended to Idaho by constitutional provision
with the certainty of adding to its total vote.
On the other hand, restrictions on voting have
been adopted in Mississippi, Louisiana and
South Carolina, the full effect of which will be
shown at this year’s election, and the most
reasonable estimate of the probable total vote
is, everything considered, about 15,000,000.
It Was "Unexampled Generosity.”
New York Letter.
An employe for many years in the service
of Kuhn, Loeb & Co. died recently ns the re
sult of an operation. The members of the -
firm visited him at frequent intervals while
he was in the hospital, and when death drew
□ear he was promised that his widow would
not be allowed to suffer. After his Cc<ith the
latter was sent for and she was told that her"- >
husband's salary, $7,000 annually, would he
paid to her in the future as a pension. The
firm’s action is regarded as one of unexampled
generosity.
