It weighs 6,600 pounds. —► The Frederick fair, which closed on Friday of last week, was the last of tbe Mary land coonty fairs for this year.

Voters should remember that their ballots must be folded exactly as they were when they re ceived them from the judge, and it is going to be no easy matter for many when the size of the sheet is considered. Also keep the ballot free from spots of any kind. — A gentleman who read in The Union last week the item about Towson’s bad boys said a few years ago he lived in a certain vil lage in Baltimore county where exactly tb e same condition of affairs prevailed. Finally tbe church authorities could stand it no longer and caused tbe arrest of some of the gang. The result was their parents bad to pay sub stantial fines for them, (with tbe costs added) to keep them from going to jail. That settled it. No more bad behavior in the churches after that. Why can’t Towson do something of the same sort 7 —• The death of Mr. John A. Bradley, son of Mr. Patrick Bradley, of Loreley, briefly men tioned in The Union last week, was the result of accident. He was employed by tbe contrac tors building tbe outfall sewerage plant at Back river and coming up from a shaft tbe bucket in which he and two others were, fell and be was struck on the stomach, causing internal inju ries from which be died in a few hours. Mr. Bradley was an industrious young man and was highly thonght of by his employers. His aged parents were greatly shocked and grieved at bis tragic death. Pointers How to Vote tbe Ticket.—For the information of voters the following ia pub lished and it would be well to bear the facta in mind when you go to the polls next Tuesday: Tickets must be voted bye cross (X) mark in tbe spece provided therefor to the right of and oppoeite the name of every person voted for. Tbe cron (X) mark must ba within the square provided for tbe purpose and moat not extend beyond, and there must be no other mark what ever oo tb* ballot. Any mark what ever on tbe ballot except tb* erase marks, whether in tb* equare or oat oT.it, will ceoee tb* ballot to ba thrown oat. Ballots torn or defaced in any way cannot be counted. Voters are allowed three ballot*, if bat mar* than seven miaataa cannot be consumed in marking a ballot IT more names art marked than there are persons to be elected to an office tbe entire ballot moat be thrown out. Ballots muat be marked with tbe in- I " delible pencil fonnd in tbe election booth. If marked in any other way they must be thrown out. Jacksonville and Sunnybrook, lOtb Dis trict.— About noon on Wednesday, October 23d, tbe frame dwelling of Mr. John Cook, Sr., on tbe county road north of Bweet Air, waa destroyed by fire. At the time there was no one at home except Mr. Cook, who has been bedridden from a paralytic stroke for three years, and bis yonngeat daughter, Miss Bertha Cook, who kept house for her father and brothers, *lt was a fortunate circumstance that one of the sons returned home just in time to rescue his father from the burning house. Tbe neighbors responded promptly to tbe alarm, but tbe flames spread so rapidly that it waa impossible to save much of the con tents of the house A few valuables were saved by Miss Cook, who worked like a hero. Sbe baa tbe sympathy of many friends in tbe destruction of her home and they have done all in their powor to cheer and comfort her. Tbe estimated loss is about <2,000, with only <4OO insurance—not enongh to cover tbe value of the contents of tbe bouse. The funeral of Edwin T. Isenock, son of Mr. C. C. Isenock. who died suddenly in Bai more, took place on Thursday afternoon at Chestnut Grove Church and waa largely at tended by relatives and sympathizing frienda. Rev. Thomas E. Copea, pastor of Towson M. E. Church, conducted the services, assisted by Rev. William L. Schmaiborat, pastor of the church. There were a number of beautiful floral tributes. The pall-bearers were Messrs. Ernest Akeburet, Raymond Ensor. George Ise nock, Oscar Ensor and Emil and Charles Job lonowsky. There are a number of pretty and well cul tivated farms in this section of the county and they are admired by all who pass this way. Oar people generally are thrifty and law-abiding and hence we are contented and happy. It is often wondered at why so many of the young folks leave ns to take np their homes elsewhere, especially in Baltimore. A very large congregation attended the communion service at Chestnut Grove Church last Sunday morning. Twelve persons united with tbe chnrch. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas L. Owens, of Snnny brook, bave received the announcement of the marriage of their son, Dr. Owens, a rising young physician of Cumberland, Md., where the couple will reside. We bave not yet learned whether or not the Sweet Air Lyceum will be revived for tbe coming winter. The hope ia generally ex pressed that it will be. Last winter it famish ed pleasant weekly entertainment for the neighborhood for miles aronnd, and those who so successfully conducted it will receive the encouragement of everybody. Miss Elenora Bock, daughter of Mrs. Andrew Meisner, has returned from a visit to Balti more. She has a large and beautiful collection ot chrysanthemums and Mrs. W. L. Schmal horst, who is an artist,is now painting someof the flowers from Miss Bock’s garden. Mrs. Connolly, wife of Mr. Dixon Connolly, who lately bought tbe Watkins store property at Baldwin Station, ia very ill at her home in Walbrook and her numerous friends through out this section are much concerned about her. Mr. Malcolm George, of Belair, accompanied by bis grandfather, has been visiting relatives and friends in this community and also near Taylor. Mr. Benjamin Burk, of Sweet Air, had an arm broken a few days ago by having it caught in the belting of an engine. The weather has been fine for drives through the country and some enjoy these when the opportunity presents itself: M. Monkton, N. O. R. R.—Glorious golden October days are drawing to a close. The fruitful harvest season of the month presents much that is analogous to the fruitful human life in the fullness or perfection of autumn. The same rich, beantiful tints in autumn’s garb which denote the coming of the barren winter, in human life mean old age and de crepitude, and yet in the leafless trees we see possibilities for hope, for in a short while the tree will again be a thing of beauty. And onr faith leads ns to believe the same is possi ble in bumau life, or in our life beyond. Mrs. Edwards, who had been visiting her daughter, Mrs. Wm. D. Curry, all summer, has recovered sufficiently from her recent ill ness to permit her to return to her city home for the winter. Mrs. George E. Shelley is a guest of relatives in Baltimore. Her sister, Mrs. Matilda Bayne, who has been an invalid for some time, is much worse at present. Mr. George E. Shelley and son picked from 10 trees 270 bnsbels of apples, of which 200 bushels were sold at 50 cents a bushel. Mr. Shelley’s apple crop this year was very profita ble. without much expense, only tbe labor of gathering. The ladies of St. James’ Guild will serve the election officials and others luncheon at Mr. T. Melville Pearce’s hall, over the blacksmith shop at Manor. The menu will include all the delicacies of the season, with oysters served In any style desired. Mr. and Mrs. J. Winfield Shepperd bave issued cards announcing the marriage of their daughter, Eva Royston, to Mr. Harry Elliott, ou Saturday last, at St. Joseph’s rectory, Texas. A luncheon was served at the bride’s home to tbe immediate families before tbe service. The bride was gowned in a tailored blue broad cloth costume, with hat and gloves to match. After the ceremony they left for the James town Exposition, thence to New York and Niagara Falla. The groom ia the only son of Sheriff and Mrs. Jacob Elliott, of Mt. Carmel. Col. Jacob M. Pearce, who was indisposed last week, is again able to be ont. Mrs. Elizabeth Gent, who has been visiting her daughters in Anniston, Ala., and Tazewell, Va., has returned and is now with her daugh ter, Mrs. T. Ross Payne, at Corbett. Mr. Preston, who rents Mrs. Harry Sutton’s farm at Monkton, was unfortunate on Sunday last. His herd of cattle got out and strayed on the railroad where one was killed outright while another was thrown down an embank ment, but was not injured. Before another issue of The Union the an nual battle of the ballots will have been fought and won the and many friends of Mr. Thomas J. Miller —regardless of party affiliations— will be more than glad to see him our next County Treasurer. Mr. Miller came within 48 votes of being elected once before. He is a gentle man of the highest honor and character and with all so genial and pleasant that everyone likes him and wishes hint success in bis can vass for the office he seeks. H. Rosstllle, 14th District.—A Halloween party was given Miss Doris L. Milling, at her home, by Miss Annabelle McCall a few even ings ago. Many games were played and re freshments were served at a late hour. Among those present were Mr. and Mrs. George Ster ling. Misses Rosy and Alma Garrison, Anna Stevens, Rebbie Jeffers. Gretrnde Hughes, Lillian Wilkinson and Messrs. Jas. T. Milling, Charlee Robinson, Wilson Maddox, Walter Gross, Irvin Stevens, Charles Haut, W. H. Milling, Stephen Wilkinson, Frank Kirk, Wil liam Perkins, John Hohman, Harry Wright and Richard Dodson. A Republican rally and mass-meeting was held at Grange Hall, on 28th inst. It was the largest gathering of tbe kind ever held in this community. The speakers were Messrs. A. W. Fuss, candidate for County Commissioner, A. G. Kelm, Laban Spaiks, Henry Pielert and C. Roes Mace, candidate for State Senator. Mr. William Volz, in company with Mr. Harry Dimling, spent a week at tbe James town Exposition. Many of their friends re ceived souvenirs npon their return. On Monday. 29th inst., at the residence of her son, Mr. Edward J. Herrmann, Mary A., beloved wife of the late Peter Herrmann, died after a short illness. She was in her 78th year and is survived by one son. The funeral took place on the 30th, at 2p. m. Interment in Bal timore Cemetery. Revival services are being held this week at Orem’s M. E. Church. The meetings were well attended. D. Knoebel, 10th District.—The rain early this week was much needed and it is giving tbe late sown wheat a start. Farmers have about finished cutting off corn. As labor waa scarce the price paid for cutting was high. Some men made as much as <4 per day. Chicken thieves are busy in this neighbor hood just now. Tbe election is near, but we bear very little politics. Everybody seems moat interested in their own affairs. One thing reminded me that we are going to have an election. The other day I met a threshing outfit on tbe coun ty road, the crew consisting of four men, and a noisier crowd I never beard. They were shout ing for Fred. Talbott at the top of their voieee. I heard aince they had inst finished a job of threshing for a good old Republican who treated them to a barrel of bard cider, which accounts for all tbe enthusiasm. O. Loreley,nth District.—The funeral of John A. Bradley, who died at the City Hospital, October 20tb, from injuries received while at work on the new city sewerage system, took place Wednesday, October 23d. from bis late bon* at this place. Mr. Bradley ia survived by bia parents, Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Bradley, five listen and two brother*. Service* were conducted at 8. Stephen * Church. Bradshaw, 2 tbe Rev. Father Clements, pastor of tbe arch. Interment in St. Ignatius Cemetery, Harford county. Tbe pall-bearer* were Messrs. Leonard G. and Cbarlaa Qalnlin, Stephen and Leonard Muller. Charlee Dyer and Patrick Welch. Mr. Charlee Dyer, of Bradshaw, left last Thursday for Charleston. S. C., when be bee secured a position. The oyster supper held for the benefit of T malar M. B. Church Booth, last Saturday night, was a decided socoeas. L. Laura villa, Harford Bond.—The election for offleen of the Lauraville Volunteer Fire Compact will take place on Thureday. No vember 7tb, just two days after the county election, and a great deal of interest ia being taken in it by the members. The company made a bit at its ball at Herrman’s Park last week with their natty blue uniforms. Many distinguished guests were preeent and gave na a little bit of #>od speech-making. Tbe Harford road is being improved with atone from the toll-gate to the city limits, which is moch appreciated by the public. The part from tbe city limits to Hamilton avenue is also to be stoned within a few days. Miss Agnes Baier, of Lauraville, was mar ried to Mr. Clarence Bopp, of Baltimore, on Wednesday afternoon at 4.30 o’clock. B. Harrisonvllle, 3d District.-The protracted meeting that began in Ward’s Methodist Epis copal Chapel several weeks ago, is still in pro i gresa and is well attended. In an interview i with one of the pastors of the chnrch yonr correspondent learned that unusually sucoess i ful revival services had been held in the ven ous churches of the circuit during the fall and at least forty Demons have professed conver i sion. Revs. William E. Cnrley and J. Edward Snyder are pastors of the circuit, which em braces six churches. Residents of the 2d district were much per turbed on Satnrday morning last by reports of the sadden death the night preceding of Mr. R. Pierce Choate, a well known farmer and gran ger. Later in the day the appearance of Mr. Choate on the Baltimore and Liberty pike set j tied the question to the satisfaction of his fnends. The report bad its origin in the an nouncement of tbe death of Mr. George K. Pearce, of Bt. George’s. Heartfelt regret lsexpressed by people of this district, regardless of sect, at the resignation of Rev. Ralph W. Illingworth, pastor of Mt. Paran Presbyterian Church. He accepted a call to the pastorate of a church in Camden, New Jersey. Dr. Henry J. Hebb, former Register of Wills and Treasurer of Baltimore county, who was seriously ill for a long period early in the sum mer, is again confined to his bed. having been taken ill with a severe attack of indigestion last week. He is attended by Drs. Keating, of Owings’ Mills, and Buppert, of Harrisonville. Most of the Baltimoreans who compose the summer colony of Harrisonville and the adja cent country from May till October, have re turned to their city homes. Mrs. 8. Olivia Ware, principal of the public school at this place, is lying ill with typhoid at St. Agnes’ Hospital, Baltimore, and Miss Blanche Choate is serving as her substitute. Mr. Michael J. Hanley, one of the Republi can candidates for tbe House of Delegates, and the apostle of pure politics, is earning a repu tation as a live politician by bis activity on registration days. But while Mr. Hanley was displaying the zeal of a guardian angel in tbe interests of his party and bis candidacy be ne glected to watch his good steed’s rations quite as closely as usual with the result that he found a valuable horse dead in the stable on Saturday morning last. Green corn is supposed to be responsible for the untimely demise. The little boys of Harrisonville public school gave a very good reproduction of tne pageantry of Old Home Week on Satnrday afternoon last when a procession of floats and flags, preceded by a drum corps, moved up tbe Baltimore aDd Liberty pike for a distance of over a mile. Master Frank Kemp was chief marshal. Tbe floats were “fearfully and wonderfully made” and reflected much credit on the inventive and mechanical genius of tbe youthful originators. God bless the boys! Those drums, horns and bells made a terrible noise, but we still survive and admire the public spirit the urchios mani fested. Fail work is still greatly in arrears in this district. Some of the corn is still standing un cut and very little seeding has been done. Farmers are growling about tbe prospect of fingers nipped by Jack Frost in the process of husking. Despite tbe late spring and wet fall and general backward condition people in gen eral declare tbe year to have been a good one. Crops are good, if late, and fair prices prevail. “But a downpour of soup is little good if one’s dish is bottom up, and eggs at 25 cts. per dozen are only an aggravation if hens won’t lay,” said a lady lately. And that is true. M. Perry Hall, 11th District.—The funeral of Mrs. Eva Kraft, who died on-the 28th of Octo ber, at her home in Baltimore, took place on Thursday, at St. Joseph’s Chnrch, Belair road.

Before administering the sacrament the Cardinal addressed the children, exhorting them to be true and valiant soldiers of Jesus Christ. He said: “St. Paul in the epistle read today bewails with great sorrow that some of those who bad professed Christ had belied him by their acts. So it is today, many pro fessing Christians by their sinful lives and self-indulgences prove that they are not what they profess to be. They are in reality enemies of religion.” The Cardinal warned the boys against the evils of intemperance. He said that tbe Cath olic Church did not assume a fanatical position on the temperance question.

Conference on the Price of Milk.—A meeting of a committee composed of five city dairymen and five milk producers was held Wednesday afternoon in Baltimore to discuss the question of an increase in the price of milk. This committee was the outcome of a meeting of farmers held October 22d, at which the farmers asserted that tbe cost of producing milk had increased materially and it was neces sary to increase tbe price. At Wednesday’s meeting of the committee the producers again argued for an increase in Erice in addition to that which bad been offered y some of the dealers, and declared that many fanners would quit the milk business unless their, demands for a price were acceded to by tbe <sy dealers. The city milkmen who were members of the committee as individual dairy men have already given their shippers an in crease in price, but they asserted that is was impossible to grant a further increase without some concerted action on the part of the milk men pf Baltimore. It was pointed out that there are over 300 independent retailers of milk in Baltimore, many of whom have not in creased their prices to tbe farmers, and would not unless compelled to do so. All efforts to secure co-operation among the dealers to es tablish a fair minimum price for milk to the shipper and consumer have proven futile, but a further attempt along this line is now being made aDd it is believed that tbe exigencies of the milk situation at present will bring success to the movement. Before adjourning the committee, which was presided over by Mr. Edgar D. Freeland, of White Hall, adopted the following resolution, to be mailed to the individual milk producers: "Resolved, That we, as a joint committee of Baltimore dealers and producers, appointed at the meeting of the farmers, held October 22d, find that no organization of dealers exists and that in order to co-operate with dealers we must have joint action by them; also have the -co-operation of producers, and until then W 6 recommend that each producer ask his dealer the price that he thinks just and proper.” Against Killing Songbirds—Mr. Dennis Retires.—State Game Warden Oregon Milton Dennis has begun an active crusade against the wholesale slaughter of songbirds in tbe sub urbs of tbe city by small boys with slungsbots, says tbe Baltimore Sun. During the last few days a number of deputy game wardens have been scouring the woods in tbe suburbs warn ing youthful violators of tbe law. In a num ber of instances boys, especially in the vicinity of Lauraville and Gardenville, have been found with dead birds and slungsbots in their possession. W here the boys were large enough they were taken before magistrates and a fine imposed In most cases, however, tbe violators were of such tender age that their weapons of extermination were taken from them and they were permitted to go home with a warning. Speaking of tbe subject Mr. Dennis said: “The slaughter of songbirds in tbe suburbs is not much worse this year than in others. The complaints, however, have been more numer ous. It is practically useless to arrest the very small offenders, because no magistrate will fine them. The only remedy in such cases is to confiscate tbe slungshots and depend on the good being done in tbe public schools, where special attention is given to teaching young sters tbe value of songbirds and the cruelty involved in their destruction.” Since taking the above action Mr. Dennis has resigned his office of secretary of tbe Mary land Game and Fish Protective Association on account of tbe pressure of other matters. Mr. George Dobbin Penniman is tbe new president of the association. House Damaged by Fire.—Tbe residence of Gol. D. G.

The Towaon Chem ical Engine Company and the Volunteer Hoee Company responded to the alarm and it was due to tbeir excellent work that the house, aod perhaps much valuable surrounding property, was saved. The flames were confined to tbe roof, which was partially destroyed. As soon aa the alarm was sounded a crowd quickly gathered and at once commenced removing the oontents of the bouse, much of which was gotton out before tbe flames were under con trol.

President Roosevelt issued his annual Thanksgiving proclamation on Saturday last. It is as follows: “Once again the season of the year has oome when, in accordance with the custom of our forefathers for generations past, the President, appoints a day. as the especial occasion for all our people to give praise and thanksgiving to God. “During the last year we have been free from famine, from pestilence, from war. We are at peace with all the rest of mankind. Our natural resources are at least as great as those of any other nation. We believe that In ability to de velop and take advantage of these resources the average man of this nation stands at least as high as the average man of any other. Nowhere else in the world is there such an opportunity for a free people to develop to the fullest ex tent all Its powers of body, of mind, and of that which stands above both body and mind character. “Much has been given us from on high, and much will rightly be expected of us in return. Into our care the ten talents have been intrust ed ; and we are to be pardoned neither if we squander and waste them, nor yet if we hide them in a napkin; for they must be fruitful in our hands. Ever throughout the ages, at all times and among all peoples, prosperity has been fraught with danger, and it behooves us to be seech tbe Giver of all things that we may not fall into love of ease and of luxury; that we may not lose our sense of moral responsibility ; that we may not forget our duty to God and to our neighbor. “A great democracy like ours—a democracy based upon the principles of orderly liberty, can be perpetrated only if in the heart of the ordi nary citizen there dwells a keen sense of right eousness and justice. We should earnestly pray that this spirit of righteousness and justioe may grow ever greater in the hearts of all of us and that our souls may be inclined ever more both toward the virtues that tell for gentleness and tenderness, for loving kindness and forbearance one with another, and toward those no less ne cessary virtues that make for manliness and -■*' rugged hardihood—for without these qualities neither nation nor Individual can rise to tbe level of greatness. “Now, therefore. I, Theodore Roosevelt, Presi dent of the United States, do set apart Thurs day. the 28th day of November, as a day of gen eral thanksgiving and prayer, and on that day I recommend that the people shall cease from their daily work and in their homes or in their churches meet devoutly to thank the Almighty for the many and great blessings they have re ceived in the past, and to pray that they may be given the strength so to order their lives as to deserve a continuation of these blessings in the future.” Correspondence Baltimore County Union. THE JAMESTOWN EXPOSITION. On Boat from Exposition to 1 Cape Charles. Va.. V Ootober 30tb, 1907. ) Messrs. Editors :—I spent today at tbe James town Exposition and write to urge tbe readers of The Union who have not yet visited it to be sure to go. No one who has not been there has any idea of the beauty of the "whole show." Having visited three other of the great world’s fairs, the greatest being the St. Louis Exposi tion, I think I am in a position to express the opinion that the arrangement of the grounds and buildings are excellent. The exhibits are well arranged, many being very elaborate, com paring favorably in many respects to St. Louis. A person can very profitably spend a week in side the grounds and then not see all there la to be seen. The grounds are In good shape and many fall flowers add to the beauty of the scene. I consider it a great credit as a commemoration of the three hundredth anniversary of tbe land ing of the first English people In America. The exhibit* In the Liberal Arts and Manufac tures Building are well installed, Japan making a magnificent display of art goods. The State* Building la elaborate and compares well with many of tbe exhibits In Agricultural Palace at St. Louis. In the Educational Building many schools, colleges and universities make a good showing, tbe Woman's College, of Baltimore, having a better display than at St. Louis. The Historical Building is replete with valuable old relics aod the two Oovenunent Buildings, with annex**, are crowded with thing* of Interest to all cteases and ages. The Negro Building is a large, well-proportioned structure, filled with exhibits mad* by ooiored people. Newspapers, of which there are a large number, are shown, owned and edited by theta, and a bank ia open dally, which Is a branch of ooe of quite a num conducted by ooiored ptetooi. A rare treat today was the oonoert by the Fisk JubUse Singers, of Fisk University, Nashville* Tsnn. They have Him voices and the blending of them is such as not heard from any other company of singers. The siectric Illumination of the buildings at night Is beautiful. The grounds remain open until about Ur. n. Tbe main exhibition build ings close about sundown. This is a chance of a lifetime for those in Bal timore county wbo have never seen an exposi tion to witness something very fine, instructive and entertaining. A trip of two days at the ground* can be made for leas than $lO, and It cannot be spent to better advantage in sight seeing. Avoid tbe War Path and spend tbe time In tbe big exposition buildings, all of which are free. The entrance to tbe grounds Is 60 cts. for adults and 25 cts. for children from 6 to 12 years of age. Good rooms can be obtained for 60 cts. at tbe grounds, on the west side at Pioe Beach entrance. There are plenty of places to get good lunches outside cheaper than those on the grounds. Take all the lunch you can from home and take midday lunch in with you. Be sure and go if only for a day. The Exposition will close November 30th. R. Correspondence Baltimore County Union. INFORMATION WANTED. Messrs. Editors The Scientific Miscellany published weekly in your valuable paper is a source of profitable instruction to me. May I ask that your correspondent give an occasional Item on Bleaching—showing the present state ot the art; or, perhaps, he could give me a refer ence to some practical book on the subject. Reader. | Philip H. Crosby fired off his heavy artil i lery in the 2d district, as promised, but we 1 haven’t heard of any fatalities. He said he had 200 men pledged to vote for him because they signed his “paper.” He might, perhaps, i have gotten two out of the lot. Surely Mr. Crosby’s candidacy was theshortest on record, f His is simply another case of bitiDg off more than one can chew.
