For instance: One tied to a board fence in an alley in Towson last Sunday afternoon pulled off a 13-foot plank and with it dangling about his legs ran through one of the principal streets.

Belair Road Items.—Your correspondent is credibly informed that all those wno won premiums at the late Timonium fair were sent checks for the awards on Saturday last, which is much earlier than in former years. The checks were usually sent out after the first Sat urday in October. No doubt they all have them by this time. It has just come to light that two brothers, residents of Perry Hall (and they are nospring chickens, being each over 70 years of age) ab stracted (not stole) from a wagon on the fair grounds at Timoninm a basket containing spring chicken, pie and other goodies, and what they did to the goods was something aw ful. After tbe meal they had to walk ana get something to aid tbeir digestion. Upon their return they found more chicken, but it hap pened to be in their own wagon. No warrants were issued, but they have to stand a good deal of “joshing” from friends. They are willing and able to pay for the goods, but have not been successful in finding the owner, and as one of them is a widower be hopes it is a lady. A rising vote of thanks is due the United Railways and Electric Company for changing their switching of cars from under the steam railroad bridge at Gay street to a place further out the road where wagons can pass on both sides of the cars. The com pany and the people were fortunate in not having an acciden t where it formerly was. This should havelbeen done years ago. Can any one tell ns the reason why our truckers cannot raise pickles and lima beans as successfully as in former years when they were a great crop 7 Now they are never Half a crop. They come up fine and make a luxurious growth to about blossoming time, when they shrivel and dry up, showing a few nubs. They get the same fertilization and attention as in former years and tbe land is tbe same. Mr. Adam Lenhoff, one of the old pioneers of Patty Hill, died at a ripe age and was buried in St. Joseph’s Cemetery a few days ago. Invitations for the wedding in early October of Miss Wilbemina C. Deigert to Mr. Otto P. Fiedler are out. We all wißh them much happiness. Stab. Cockeysville, Bth District.—While there is much complaint elsewhere as to a drouth, yet with us the ground has considerable mois ture, and springs have a good flow of water; the pastures are doing well and vegetation, especially garden truck and late corn, have de veloped well. Tomatoes are perfect and plen tiful where there was a disposition to grow them, and yet they sell at 20 cts. per peck. At this price it is better to raise them than to have to buy. . The ground has been in perfect condition for seeding and many have finished, and the grain ia up and looks fairly well. Those who have not sowed may be hindered by rains. Corn is being cut off, but we hear of no an ticipated big yields per acre as last year—l 6 to 17 barrels per acre having been harvested then. Large and good quality ears are expected. More acres this season than last year were required to fill the silos. Mr. A. H. Nofsinger, of Corbett, having pur chased the hotel interests here, he becomes one of tbe long list of hotel-keepers. Mr. Joshua F. Cockey's grandfather, Joshua F. Cockey, was the builder and first proprietor of this house and continued there for nine years until his death in 1819. Tbe hotel having been built in 1810, will have stood a century two years from now. It is still one of the most substan tial buildings in the village, being of stone with slate roof. The late R. Noble Wilson kept this house for twenty-seven years, which is the longest time any keeper had it. Among the many who have been in charge, not in cluding the builder and the late keeper, were John H. Longnecker, R. N. Wilson’s grand father, Robert Wilson, Richard Cockey, Mr. Horner, Anthony Shanebrook, Abram Jessop, Heith S. Gill and John Bond, the latter being the only surviving one. It is expected that improvements will be made to the interior so as to supply modern conveniences. Mrs. Wil son expects to remove next month to Bal timore. Necker, 11th District.—We have very cool nights and warm days. Rain is very badly needed. Tbe mower is heard in tbe second crop.

Krempel has an intelligent colt that he raised. It understands everything he says to it in German.

Mr. William Tremper will finish his course as a veterinary surgeon in Philadelphia. The school at St. Joseph’s opens next Mon day. The boys are yawniDg and feeliDg badly just dov. 8.

De Sales and other schools, will be much missed by the younger social set of the Manor. Miss Florence Lamar who spent the sum mer with her aunt, Mrs. Edwin L. Pearce, has returned to her home in Washington. The fall meeting of the Manor Glen Racing Association was excellently conducted and the racing was good. The steeplechase and flat races were especially tine. The Foxhound Derby was won by “Mac,” owned by Mr. Walter Hutchins. The prize was a handsome sterling silver cup, donated by Mr. Redmond C. Stewart, and *lO by the Manor Glen Association. The flat race—a mile dash—was won by Dolly Bine. She lowered the track record, the time in the last half mile being 51 seconds. She was ridden by “Bob” Leach, who made quite a reputation for himself as a jockey, by riding in three winning races, in two of which he won first money, and one second place, be sides lowering tbe track record. Many of our people went to the farmers’ picnic at Mt. Carmel and enjoyed tbe outing very much. Farmers and their families need the social intercourse of such affairs. A serious accident occurred at Monkton on Wednesday afternoon, when an express train struck and killed two horses attached to Mr. James M. Shepperd's butcher wagon. Mr. Shepperd and one of bis children were sitting in tne wagon which he had made an effort to back off tbe track, when someone shouted that the express was coming. It was fortunate that he got the wagon off far enough to save his and his little son’s life. The wagon was loaded with blacksmith iron for Mr. Harry Harris, who runs the Monkton shop, and it is thought that tbe rattling of the iron prevented Mr. Shepperd from hearing the bell ringing. Monkton is a dangerous crossing and should have either gates or a flagman. The N. C. R. R. has become so impoverished that it has had to take off about 20 different trains in tbe last week, which necessitated a change in schedule making tbe trains run at different hours.

The Farmers’ Picnic a Big Success— Good Weather and Large Attendance.— The third annua! farmers’ picnic at Mt. Carmel, Baltimore county, on Saturday last, was a marked success, tbe weather man having c< n tributed largely to this resalt. It was held un der the auspices of the several farmers' clubs of the county, with Mr. Upton H. Tarbert, chair man, and Mr. J. Fred. Shamberger, secretary of the committee. Nearly every section of the county was represented and the politicians w ere also ont in force. Mr. Robert Garrett, the Republican nominee, and Hon. J. Fred. C.

Each school is to be equipped with agricultural and home economics departments, thus educating the farmers’ sons and daughters to, instead or away from, the farm.

Cut In Train Service —Big; Saving I . —The Pennsylvania Railroad announces that, begin ning with last Monday, it has discontinued 16 local trains on the Northern Central. There was no change in through trains. Every year after the vacation ends the Pennsylvania with draws about six trains from service, but the change heretofore has been made in November. By the reduction in the train service the Pennsylvania will save approximately 1600 a day, or $219,000 a year. Under the new sche dule three trains from the north and three from the south are taken off the Harrisburg line, three north and south were discontinued on the Green Spring Valley branch and two north and two south were eliminated on the Spar row’s Point line. The new schedule is so arranged as to cause the minimum amount of inconvenience. The Pennsylvania Railroad is pursuing a similar policy over its entire division, aud it is esti mated that the saving on this one item will ex ceed *1,500,000 a year. The company is re trenching in every department and drastic economies have been put into effect at some points. The Pennsylvania has withdrawn these trains on the Harrisburg line: Nos. 112, 118 and 132, which left Cockeysville for Baltimore at 10.35 A. m., 3.35 p. m. and 11.05 r. m., Nos. 105, 117 and 125, which left Baltimore for Cockeys ville at 9 a. m., 2.30 p. m. and 9.30 p. m., respec tively, and the Sunday train, No. 920, leaving Parkton for Baltimore at 9.15 a. m., and No. 205, leaving Baltimore for Parkton at 4 p. m. Bad Roada in tlie Suburbs. —"Good Roads" writes as follows to the Baltimore American: "Little work appears to have been done so far as a result of the good roads loan. 1 understand that Baltimore comes iu for a share. It ought to, inasmuch as the taxpayers of the city bear three fourths of the expense. The conditions, that now exist on tbe roads leading to Baltimore is shameful. I can name three roads—tbe Harford, Belair and Philadel phia—that are in worse condition than some of the roads in other parts of the State. In fact, roads in other counties are superior to the roads which I have mentioned. Farmers have been complaining for years of the condition of the roads leading from Baltimore to the pro duce sections of Baltimore county, but nothing bas been done to alleviate tbe trouble. There are rote by the score, and in many places the holes are never empty of water, which settles in them after a rain. One can readily realize wbat the farmers have to contend with when they bring their wagons, loaded with produce, to the city after once seeing the condition of the roads. Many accidents have occurred as a re sult of bad roads. It is hoped that some action will be taken by the Good Roads Commission to remedy this trouble.” An Aged Minister Takes Another Bride. —Rev. Thomas H. Wright, who was for sev eral years a resident of Towson while he was pastor of Baltimore Circuit, Methodist Protest ant Church, and who is now pastor of acircuit on tbe Eastern Shore of Maryland, was mar ried in Baltimore on Monday to Mrs. A. D. Price, who until recently was principal of the public school at Btubensville, Kent Island. The couple came to Baltimore in the morn ing on the steamer and were married by Rev. F T. Tagg. at bis office in the Methodist Pro testant Book Store, North Charles street. Im mediately after the wedding the couple left for Fawn Grove, Pa., the former home of the ♦room. Thev will later go to Boston, i Rev. Mr. Wright, who is 68 years of age, is well known in Queen Anne’scounty. He has i five grown daughters by his first wife. The bride, who is 47 years of age. has also been mar ried before. She has two grown daughters and one son, Mr. Herbert Price, who graduated i from Johns Hopkins University last spring. i Grove Farm Guernsey’s at New York i state Fair.—Mr. and Mrs. James McK. Merry man’s cattle were the largest money winners at Syracuse, competing with herds from New York, Rhode Island and other states. Among , the winnings was for best aged cow. Seventeen i were shown in this class, including the cham , pion cow at the International Dairy Show at Chicago, their cow (“Clare of Poplar Grove 3d ’) being the one chosen by the judge. They also i won the breeders’ young herd, with calves s raised on Grove Farm, from six other entries; also produce of one cow and one yearling bull; second with aged bull, nine entries; second t with bull cal f, ten entries, and second w ith aged . fi er d, etc. Baltimore county has reason to be proud of this showing. When her herds can 1 go away from home to such great fairs as Syra b Snse and win in such hot competition, it surely is a victory that counts for something. AUTUMN NUPTIAL EVENTS.

A Case of General Interest Disposed of. —ln the Circuit Court hereon Tuesday thecase of the Baltimore and Yorktown Turnpike Company against Mr. John W. Smith, a well known 10th district farmer, was tried before Judges Burke and Duncan and a jury. It in volved the right of the company to collect 5 cents toll at toll-gate No. 1, nearest Baltimore, and 4 cents toll at toll-gate No. 2, at Towson, for each one-horse vehicle and double that amount for each two-horse team, and bo on in the same proportion. A number of persons using the turnpike have been refusing to pay toll, claiming that as thev turn off the turnpike at the north edge of Towson and go out the Dulany’s Valley turnpike they ought to pay a smaller amount of toll at gate No. 2. Under the decision of the Court of Appeals of Maryland in the case of the Baltimore and Frederick Turnpike Company against Routzahn, the Court ruled that no evi dence was admissible to show how far the per son paying toll bad traveled on the turnpike, but that the company is allowed to collect at one gate for the distance to the next gate, re at ibe instance traveled. Under these instructions the jury gave a verdict for the com pany for the full sum claimed, which amounted to only $4.88. It is likely that all users of the turnpike will now pay promptly the tolls which are in ar rears, so as to avoid suits, as the company has declared its intention to enter suit immediately on all claims for tolls that are outstanding. This question has been agitated for more than a year and several attempts have been made to cut down some of the toll-gates in the county. The case was appealed from Justice Joseph B. Herbert, before whom it was tried several months ago, and who gave a verdict for the amount claimed, and as there is no con stitutional question involved the case cannot be taken to the Court of Appeals and Tuesday’s decision is final. It was declared by counsel in the opening statement that this was a test case, and no doubt all users of the turnpike will accept it as such and make no further objections to the paying of tolls as charged by the turnpike com pany at the various gates. The case was tried by Mr. Elmer J. Cook for the company, and Mr. Elmer R. Haile for Mr. Smith. State Sunday School Convention. —A rare treat will be offered the Sunday school workers of Maryland through the 22d biennial State convention of the Maryland Sunday School Association, to be held in Baltimore, October 22d and 23d.
