Mr H. L. Grube is a wideawake business

are certain to be many disappointments.

of the York road to the new city boundary

—> A large bunch of sheep, intended for the
Notch Cliff Stock Farm of Mr. William Hopps,
in lower Long Green Valley, passed through
Towson a few days ago. The coming Legisla
ture should pass a stringent law to helpon this
important industry, which is always profitable
to farmers if they can protect their flocks from
tbe ravages of dogs. Put a heavy tax on the
canines and let the money thus raised go to the
farmer to reimburse him for any losses he may
sustain by having his sheep killed by dogs.
The B. & O. Railroad Connects With the
Md. & Pa.—Tbe Baltimore and Ohio Railroad
Company has completed arrangements for
building a connection with the Maryland and
Pennsylvania Railroad above North avenue.
The Maryland and Pennsylvania has a right to
use the Belt Line tunnel of the Baltimore and
Ohio and more than a year ago it arranged to
build a connection with the latter road. Sev
eral months ago the Maryland and Pennsyl
vania started to build an incline from its tracks
up to those of the Baltimore and Ohio, a short
distance north of North avenue. At this point
tbe Baltimore and Ohio tracks are considerably
above those of the Maryland and Pennsylvania
and the incline is rather long.
While the Maryland and Pennsylvania has
practically completed its portion of tbe work,
the Baltimore and Ohio had not arranged for
the connection until a few days ago. When
tbe tracks which will join the two roads has
been put down the Maryland and Pennsylvania
will be able to transfer freight originating on
its line for points on the Baltimore add Ohio
direct, without having first to send it over the
Pennsylvania Railroad, as at present, and vice
It is quite possible that the Maryland and
Pennsylvania will some time in the future
consider runfiing its passenger trains through
to Camden Station. The company’s terminal
iB now at North avenue and Oak street, but
under its charter it has a perfect right to use
the tunnel down to Camden. At present, how
ever, it is said the company has no intention
of availing itself of tbe franchise further than
to facilitate tbe movement of freight intended
for points on the Baltimore and Ohio.
Successful Field Trials.—The Maryland,
Virginia and District of Columbia Field Trials
Association held a meet at Laurel this week.
Among the successful contestants were dogs
belonging to Messrs. Joseph F. Hindes, Gra
son Gent and George P. Weir, all of Baltimore
county. Before the close of the meeting Mr.
Gent was elected president of the association
and Mr. Weir a member of the board of gov
ernors. A correspondent says:
"As is usual on a first day there were some
delays at the start, but these were relieved for
the diversion of the spectators by Mr. Grason
Gent, who bad shipped his trick saddle horse
here for bis use in following tbe trials. Mr.
Gent put the horse through all sorts of stunts.
Later in the day Mr. Gent attempted to make
his horse leap a stiff post and-rail fence. Tbe
trick horse took it and planted bis feet firmly
on landing. Mr. Gent continued his flight and
landed on his head several feet in front of the
horse Mr. Gent was not hurt, but greatly
chagrined, since he had earlier posed as a cow
boy rider to such appreciative spectators.”
Baltimore County Ballot a Curiosity.—
In a recent issue of the Daily Enterprise, pub
lished at Cheburne, Texas, we find tbe follow
“Marshall H. Wilson, who is a represents
i tive of the Census Department at Washington,
i and is here getting some data as to divorces,
bas presented District Clerk Hoffman with a
copy of tbe official ballot of Baltimore county,
Maryland. It is a very large document and
; could not be easily stuck in your vest pocket.
Mr. Wilson’s statement of the law regulating
- j the casting of this ballot would interest the
I Texas politician. The Terrell election law
i isn’t a circumstance. Mr. Hoffman has the
i ballot pasted up for exhibition aud all are in
vited to take a look at it.”
i Mr. Wilson’s home is in Towson and his
i brother, whois employed in The Union office,
I sent him the copy of the ballot above alluded to.
it Marble HUI, Bth District.—Our Democratic
a friends have much over which to rejoice in
y the way of pluralities or majorities, but surely
d they feel condemned over the fact of their con
s nection with a party that bas disfranchised so
many of our citizens as the multitude of re
a jected ballots show. Besides a large number
a of persons did not vote owing to tbe large and
b confusing ballot. At Cockeysville precinct
i, 171 persons failed to vote of the 660 registered,
. and 55 ballots were rejected. We do hope it
will be our privilege to again use a simple bal
] lot and every man say with one mark if he
; choose for a party’s nominees,
l We are opposed to an educational test be
- cause many persons who cannot read pay
s taxes and have opinions, hence why cannot
they gain knowledge from what persons tell
, them as those who are informed by reading
r what bas been published. There are many
f uneducated but industrious business men that
i can impart common sense to tbe boastful pro
r feasor or student. Our duty is to make the
world better and not degrade any class, but
t teach that the law must be obeyed, that life be
protected and made happy ; hence disfranchise
I none but encourage them to respect their
, birthright.
i There is general complaint over the corn
not having matured or hardened. There is
i much large corn and big yields are expected
and yet a great deal is soft from late planting.
Mr. E. E. Scott grew very large ears of corn
and may get 18 barrels per acre. Mr. W. H.
i Wight bas extra size corn and will get from
one field from 15 to 20 barrels. He has two
fields planted with different seed showing the
advantage in selecting the best producing corn.
Our fire department seems to be resting, I
am glad to report, as fires are not appreciated.
We do wish the County Commissioners would
give them all they ask in the way of equip
ment as the men are deserving from many
points of view. Men seek political favors and
are gratified at large salaries, but it is too often
tbe case that those who are willing to protect
life and property and risk life to save, are dis
couraged by lack of material to do a brave deed.
Tbe members are well known and organized
for noble purposes and care for what equip
ment they have and are ready to use it at a
moment’s call. Mr. George Jessop, and those
with him at the Richardson fire, sacrificed
time and business interests, but not for glory.
A wedding or two is anticipated as Cupid bas
been very industrious lately.
Pleasant Hill, 6tb District. —The present
mouth, thus far, bas been a very wet one, the
ground being thoroughly saturated and there
oueht to be no scarcity of water this winter.
Grain bas made very poor progress this fall
and tbe prospect for a good crop next year is
not very flattering. But we are commanded
in the morning to sow the seed and in the eve
ning not to withhold the hand for we know
not which shall prosper, or whether they both
shall be alike good.
Our farmers are in the height of corn-husk
ing. Some are waiting for the corn to dry,
thinking it not fit to be housed, but the fre
quent rains are preventing it from shaping up.
The crop seems to be a fairly good one.

years of age and leaves a wife and a number
of children.
The Baptist Church at this place is under
going a thorough renovating and the congre
gation has purchased a fine bell, which will
be swung in tbe tower when it is completed.

community as good church buildings and we
are frank to say, in this respect our people
are up to date, as the M. E. Church in the vil
lage is a credit to the congregation.
Judge Hoßhall seems a very happy man
since the election. His district paid him a

Last Sunday night as Mr. Isaac Holbrook,
Jr., was returning home from Mt. Olive
Church, he bad a very unpleasant experience.
His horse became unmanagable and ran into a
buggy driven by a Mr. Coe, who was going in
the opposite direction. Both buggies were de
molished, but fortunately no one was badly
hurt, although Mr. Holbrook was thrown un
der bis buggy.
Mr. William Sudman was elected president
of Randallstown Christian Endeavor Society
last Sunday night.

Lady’s Manor.
An effort was made to do away with the
postoffices in this neighborhood and establish
a rural free delivery route, but through the
efforts of some of our business men, who
wanted their mail twice a day and on holidays
and did not wish to wait for their letters until
3 o’clock in the afternoon, the movement was
defeated. E.

trict.—Tbe members of Bethany Lodge, I. O.
O. F.. of Glenarm, on Sunday morning last at
tended divine service at Chestnut Grove

meeting at Chestnut Grove Church last Sun
day evening. Those present were much pleased
with the service.
Hogs that have been fattening are rapidly
maturing for the butcher and many farmers
will slaughter fine ones that will largely make
provision for the winter. Pork is high at this
time and those who have any to sell are doing
well with it. This year, taken altogether, has
been an exceptionally good one for farmers.
The fine weather lately has been much ap
preciated by farmers and they are pushing
the work of saving their corn crop as rapidly

Mr. Wm. D. Curry is putting up a rough

Serious Gunning: Accidents. —Capt.Durm,
of the Mt. Winans Fire Company, met with a
serious accident a few days ago while gunning
with several friends at Cherry Hill, near
Westport. His dog chased a rabbit and Capt.
Durm fired one barrel, killing the rabbit. He
started in the direction of his game when the
gun exploded in his hand, shattering it terri
bly. The thumb and a large portion of the
first two fingers were blown completely off,
and he was bleeding profusely when his friends
hurried for surgical assistance. Dr. Glann, of
Mount Winans, was notified and dressed Mr.
Durm’s wounds, after which he was removed

perforation of the intestines or internal hemor
rhages were found, and it is thought that he
has a fair chance for recovery.
Chestnuts and Potatoes as Food. —
Chestnuts are a food very similar to potatoes
in value, although on the side of nutrition the
advantage is with the nut. The latter has but
53 per cent, water, while water in the potato
is found to the extent of 75 per cent. We are
just beginning to learn generally in this coun
try that the chestnut may be cooked exactly
as the potato is cooked, and that it is palata
ble either boiled, baked or roasted. All very
good and true. But if the chestnut formed
any part of the staple food of Baltimore county
we would all go hungry, as the crop is small,
the nut is small, with the worm the biggest
part thereof and very much in evidence. But
all the same the cultivation of the chestnut
should go on, especially in lands that will
raise nothing else.

The Relationship of Landlord and Ten
ant. —.This was the principal subject dis
cussed at the last meetiDg of the Junior Gun
powder Agricultural Club. We append the
views of some of those present:
Mj. Joshua G. Bosley said: “The system in
England is to make the most out of every acre
of land and rents there are high, with long
term leases. The trouble here is the renter
wants too much land, which is a detriment to
Bin* and the landlord, the result being more
work and lighter crops per acre. It will pay
oveiy renter to do good farming. He should
receive compensation for bis labor, but should
be Under obligation to do good work. He
sbosld consider the interest of the landlord,
who ig expected to return consideration. Tbe
one who pays the taxes is supposed to keep up
tbe improvements. Tbe share rent is tbe most
equitable plan. Whatever is the system of rent
there should be a specific agreement and a com
pliance to make results satisfactory. Three
dollars per acre as a money rent would be rea
sonable, and yet large farms have rented for
much less. Six hundred acres in one place has
been rented for SBOO. In some places the one
third of crops goes to the renter, but here usu
ally the hair is given.”
Mr. Harry A Matthews said : "As to money
rent there is much property that will not bring
$3 PW acre by that system. The share system
ia better.”
Mr. Laban Sparks said: “The relation of
landlord and tenant is very near, but ofttimes
not very dear. The better plan is tbe share
system. It depends on the fertility of tbe land
to decide what to do. We cannot place a mar
ket value on land so as to base a money rent
per icre. The tax assessment is reckoned as
the value of land, and yet much is assessed at
double the price it would bring. The landlord
and tenant should co-operate to the satisfaction
of eicb, and the more intelligent should give
directions. The landlord, if a farmer, should
have some say as to the rotation of crops for
the improvement of tbe farm.”
Mr, E. E. Scott said: “I agree with Mr.
Sparks that the relation between the landlord
and the tenant is so close that one is dependent
on the other. I have seen tbe share system of
rent with poor farming ; besides there is too
muck moving on tbe part of the tenant. He
will aim to better himself, sometimes leaving
a fattn with less fertility. The money rent is
ratbsr better, as the renter will endeavor to
mata better crops. Where the farmer carries
oh dairying the money plan ia better. Much
depends on what the renter wants to do. A
man wanted a tenant and only had two in
ferior applicants.” ,
Mr. b. S. Pearce said: “I think the half
crop shire system is more satisfactory, as it is
more nearly a partnership. The right man
for a tenant will get the advantage, because his
object wilt be to succeed and farm for tbe best
crops, thus benefiting bis landlord, who be
comes more ikterestea in the well being of tbe
tenant. Too ivany tenants work to get all
they possibly on, without regard to future
improvement ofUiefarm.”
Mr. Upton H. Tarbert said: “If I had a
farm to rent I woeld want the tenant to be
most industrious and careful. I think there
should be mutual interests, then when im
provements are made each will be benefited
and appreciative.”
Mr. T.P. W. France said : “The relationship
between landlord and tenant should be as mu
tual as possible; they will understand each
other better in all that is to be done. The land
lord should furnish supplies for crops and im
provements to encourage the tenant. The
earning power of some tenants is better than
others, and some persons can make money
out of farming and add improvements at tbe
same time."
Mr. C. D. Price said: "1 think favorably
of the money rent plan and the average price
per acre, $3 to $4. I would chance the money
rent plan and the dairy business would help to
meet it. In improvements like liming the
landlord pays forthe limeand tenant hauls it."
Mr. George B. Shelley said: "What is the
landlord’s interest is the tenant’s. The former
should not be too exacting. As to satisfaction
being given much depends on the farm and its
fertility to produce the best results. The ten
ant who finds his own labor should get more
than a third of the crops or receipts.”
Mr. W. D. Curry said : "The share system
of rent, with a capable tenant and favorable
circumstances, would be an advantage to the
landlord as well as a benefit to the tenant. I
know of one or more tenants that were so suc
cessful that they soon got to be landowners ”
Mr. T. Melville Pearce said: "I think the
share system of rent is the better way and a
majority seem to do it. It is not so easy to pay
a rent. Reference to was a tenant who receives
one-third of tbe receipts of the farm and dairy
for the labor of the property, tbe landlord finds
stock, fertilizers, and seeds. The tenant finds
all the labor.”
Mr. T. V. Richardson thought the one-third
in this case was better than the half crop sys
tem, when tbe tenants find stock, &c.

County Commissioners of Baltimore county
and through tbe latter anyone representing the
county’s interests in any locality, to meet at
tbe Mayor’s reception room some day shortly

The idea of calling the meetingofrepresenta
tives of the county is to obviate opposition to
tbe water loan act when it is presented at tbe
Legislature. Last session tbe county people
practically defeated the measure because, they
contended, the city was not acting equitably.
It is for the purpose of adjusting tbeir claims
as well as the city’s that the meeting has beeu
Besides the Mayor and the two boards. Con
