PHONE—TOWSON 211^EJ CHRISTMAS AND “THE UNION.” Christmas falling this year on Fri day the next issue of The Union will appear one day earlier than usual—on Thursday instead of Friday. Adver tisements and other matters intended for that issue should therefore be sent to the office earlier than usual. Please bear this in mind. J. F. Land, an expert telephone man of De troit. has begun the manufacture of a device which will answer the calls of telephones when the person called is out. It is the phono graph principle applied to the telephone, aDd is called the annunciaphone. .It will repeat twice to each call of the phone any message which has been imparted to it. It will be especially useful to the doctor and lawyer, or any one expecting to be called while out. James G. Woodwabd, the mayor of Atlanta, who was nominated for the third time on the regular Democratic ticket, and who shocked the community by having a two weeks’ spree in the red-light district, was defeated in the recent election by Robert F. Maddox, the in dependent candidate of the Citizens’ Commit tee. The latter ran on what was called a puri ty platform, demanding decent official conduct. The leading women of the city took part in the fight for Maddox, as did the important business men and the preachers. Maddox had supported Woodward in the primaries. Just before Lewh Overholtzer, a farmer of Emmitsburg, Md., passed away he called a daughter to his bedside and told her to go up in the attic and raise the top from a certain step, under which would be found a tin box. She did as directed aDd found the box, which contained $3,000 in gold and silver. The box and its contents bad been placed under the step for safekeeping during the Civil War and had not been disturbed since. The family knew nothing of the hidden treasure and were much surprised to recover it. In the forty or more years that money was concealed in the step it would have earned a handsome sum if it had been placed in a savings banks even at 3 per cent. And then, too, the owner ran the cbaoce of losing it by fire. A man’s success in politics is not always ap preciated by himself, as is well illustrated in the case of Mr. John M. Morehead, one of the three Republicans recently elected to Congress from North Carolina. He regards his election as little short of a personal calamity and ac cepted the nomination because he was sure of defeat. When nominated Mr. Morehead’s speech of acceptance was as follows: ‘‘Gentle men, you have done me a great honor, and I hope you will not be disappointed in my de. feat, for I haven’t the slightest idea of being elected.” When the official count was taken it was found that be bad won by less than 450 votes. He is now bitterly denouncing those who wheedled him into running for office. He says he has been “basely betrayed” by his warmest friends. On Monday last President Roosevelt sent to the Senate the appointment of Mr. W. Hall Harris for another term as postmaster of Bal timore city, which will begin January 20th, 1909. He has been a most capable official and the business of the office has been conducted in such a manner as to call forth nothing but praise from the Postoffice Department. When asked if there was any political opposi tion to his reappointment, Mr. Harris said: “I have no knowledge of any. I have never permitted politics to control this office. In making appointments the Civil Service law has been strictly adhered to, selections beiDg made from the eligible list in regular order. And so, too, in the matter of promotions. We keep a daily record of the work of each em ploye and if he performs his duty satisfactorily his promotion is assured. There are times when men are passed over, but in a number of instances these officials have frankly ac knowledged that they were at fault and stated that there would be no occasion to pass them by again. In every such instance the man previously passed made good and was subse quently advanced.” Commenting editorially on the automo bile accident that occurred on Charles street avenue extended early last Sunday morning, in which ODe man was killed and several others injured, the Baltimore Sun says: “An irre sponsible man dashing through the roads and streets with an automobile is a puplic menace to life and a public danger and nuisance. If there is no law to lock him up so that he will not jeopardize human life, thereshould be one enacted as soon as possible. In this particular case the loss of life was to one of the occupants of the machine; but if a person on foot or in a carriage had been on the road at the time, it is not improbable that he would have been run down. Public sentiment demands insis tently that the highways shall not be made dangerous by lawless automobile drivers, and the police and the justices of the peace should impose the extreme penalty of the law when the law is violated. ' The automobile has come to stay. Its use is becoming more and more general. The Governor declares that the new State roads must be made with a view to use by these vehicles. This may greatly increase the cost of roadmaking, just as the present use of automobiles adds materially to the cost of maintenance. As the number of automobiles increases the laws for their regulation should be strengthened, so that the public may have adequate protection from reckless automobil ists, and the penalties imposed upon flagrant and persistent lawbreakers should be commen surate with their offense.’ 1 Jacob Riis, in the Century Magazine, thus speaks of the Christmas tree: “Every time I see a Christmas tree studded with electric lights, garlands of tinsel gold festooning every branch, and huDg with a hundred costly knick* knacks the storekeepers invent year by year ‘to make trade,’ until the tree itself disappears entirely under its burden, I have a feeling that a fraud has been practiced on the kindly spirit of Yule. Wax candles are the only real thing for a Christmas tree—candles of wax that mingle their perfume with that of the burning fir, not the by-product of some coal oil or other abomination. What if the boughs do catch fire? They can be watched, and too many candles are tawdry, anyhow. Also, redapples, oranges and old-fashioned cornucopias made of colored paper, and made at home, look a hundred times better and fitter in the green; and so do drums and toy trumpets and wald horns, and a rocking horse reined up in front that need not have cost S4O, or anything like it.” There is a good deal of suggestiveness in all that. The over-ornamented Christmas tree is a burlesque. It leaves nothing to the imagination, like the costly and over dressed doll out of which the child does not get as much fun as with a rag one. The over-orna mented tree symbolizes the foolish extrava gance we go to in Christmas decoration all along the line. Children are surfeited as it were with too many toys—many of them cost ly. They get so many books they read none —which probably is not a bad thing in itself. More Christmas simplicity would give more Christmas cheer and genuine joyousness. Special to The Union. LETTER FROM ABROAD. Where Living la Cheap—Hotel Chargee ; Low Enough for Anybody—Martin ique and Its Cate—Long Tramp Over Arid Plain—Correspon dent Sees Bull Fight, &c. Arles, Provence, December 10th, 1008. , Messrs Editors:—'’ Beeiog Provence on Sixty j Cents a Day” would make an appropriate title tor the narrative of my last week’s ramble. The necessities of life are cheap enough in northern France, but here the prices are astonishing. Many laborers support wife and family on $3 per week, while the beggars and gamins subsist without hardship, when necessary, on a daily "expense account” of eight or ten cents. My actual experiences, coupled with reliable infor mation regarding localities which I have not yet visited, have convinced me that an American who Is williDg to dispense with style and luxu ries can live comfortably anywhere in Europe, with the exception of Switzerland, on a daily ex penditure averaging from 50 to 75 cents, avoid ing, of course, the tourist hotels and patron izing instead the places wbicli cater exclusively to the bumbler classes of .the native population —a method which, after all, affords the only real way to get acquainted with the most picturesque and characteristic phases of Eu ropean life. At Marseille 1 had no trouble in finding a clean and airy bed-room, at the Hotel du Soleil et des Alpes, 19 Rue des Recollettes.for 20 cents a day. The neighborhood was modest but thoroughly respectable, and in a restaurant next door, pa tronized by prosperous workmen and petites bourgeoises, I dined for ten and fifteen centa, this figure not including wine, which costs an additional six cents per bottle. Approximately the same prices prevail among establishments of a similar class in smaller Provencal towns that I have visited. These places are not fre quented by tramps, peddlers or the “poorfor them there are other restaurants, where they pay four or five cents for a bed, and two cents for a steaming bowl of soup or bash. The ex istence of such conditions is not generally known in America, and is equally Ignored by the average traveler, who lives in the grand hotels and devotes all bis time to dinners, thea tres, museums and art galleries ; so I am offer ing these practical data with the hope that other young Americans who have long dreamed of visiting the old world, but who have been de terred by an exaggerated idea of the attendant expenses, may be Induced to undertake a like experience. I When I set out from Marseille, the hills and fields, golden with autumn leaves and ripened harvests, were glowing in the warmth of Indian summer. The first day afoot I crossed the little mountain ridge behind the bay, skirted the in land seas that form the eastern delta of the Rhone, and reached Martinique, a fishing village whose fleets have sailed the Mediterranean for seven centuries, and whose boats are handed down from generation to generation. Aside from the fishermen the population is composed almost exclusively of cats. The place is liter ally alive with them; they crowd the streets and overflow into the adjacent ditches, prowl ing about by night and day, pouncing with fren zied delight upon a ravishing landscape or a odorous fish carcass, a multi colored sunset or a basket of decayed shrimp. Their life is one long, voluptuous feast. Henceforth, forever, my dream of Paradise will be something like the existence of the cats aDd painters of Martin ique. ODly, if I am accorded the privilege of choice, I will elect to be a cat, for I noticed that the felines were all Bleek and fat, while the artists were gaunt and lean. After spending the night at Martinique I shoul dered my knapsack and, with a chance com panion, entered the arid plain of Crau, with Arles forty kilometres distant as our objective point. The Crau is a desert covered with stones and boulders, uninhabited and barren of vegeta tion, a sort of miniature Sahara that has resisted all attempts at irrigation and reclamation, ex cept for an occasional oasis in the northern dis trict, The road was long, the horizon was vast and monotonous as the ocean, and more than once before our pilgrimage was ended, I sighed for a camel or an automobile. But, finally, one Saturday evening, we reached our goal, and on Sunday afternoon I followed the entire able bodied population of Aries to the ancient Ro man ampitheatre to witness the final “course de taureaux” of the season, a kind of French ver sion of the Spanish bull-fight, not so dangerous as the latter, but none the less exciting, and sometimes resulting in bloodshed and fatality. A savage bull, goaded into blind fury. Is turned loose In the arena, with a red cockade tied se curely on his forehead. The beneficent muni cipality offers a prize of a couple hundred francs to the matador or “razetour” as he is termed in the patois, who succeeds in snatching the trophy from its place between the horns of the infuri ated animal. Thirty or forty young men. un armed aDd clad as for a foot race, enter the arena and stake their lives on the slender chance of gaining thirty or forty dollars and a few mo ments of applause. Truly a gentle and divert ing pastime. But the grey old coliseum, with its double row of massive arches practically in tact after twenty centuries, interested me more than the bull-baiting and the two or three thous and modern Arlesians, who, despite their num bers, seemed absolutely lost in the vast circular ampitheatre, which historians say was fashioned to furnish seats for forty and fifty thousand spectators; for Aries was once the proudest city of the Western world, an imperial metropo lis. the “Provencale Rome.” The modern Arles is one of the solemnest and saddest spots I have ever visited. Nothing re mains but the broken, shattered skeleton of the once splendid city. Formerly so grand and powerful, celebrated for its noble population, its commanding situation, its immense commer cial activity and its formidable prowess In war; Arles, the ancient metropolis, turn by turn, Greek, Roman, Gothic, Saracon, the city of im perial councils, the city of miracles, traditions and legends, is today a dead Provencal village, built around a pile of crumbling, mutilated stones. And yet. despite the miseries and mis fortunes which have followed it even unto the end, despite the wars and political conspiracies which consummated its ruin, or perhaps because of these calamities, it will be forever the ren dezvous of poets and the inspiration of artists. W. B. Seabrook. Rev. Dr. Robert Collyer— now eighty-five years of age—talked about himself lately to a Brooklyn Times reporter. He attributes his green old age in part to his twenty-one years in the smithy. He goes to bed about 9.30 o’clock at night, and gets out of it soon after 7 in the morning. He takes plenty of exercise. He preaches when he feels like it, but isn’t writing any new sermons. “I have lived in two worlds in my lifetime,” be said to the re porter, "and the one I am living in now is a great improvement on the other. lam two years older than the first locomotive, and only think of the vast number of improvements which have been introduced, especially during these later years. I have lived in two worlds— a world of primitive things and a„world of enlightenment and progress.” When we find wise old men like Dr. Collyer optimistic there is no excuse for young men being pessimists. The great trouble with this world is that too few young men are unwilling to work in a blacksmith shop twenty-one years. They begin their education at the wrong end. A report of the Secretary of Agriculture, made on the 12th instant, shows that the value of all farm products for the year 1908 reaches the most extraordinary total in the nation’s history— s7,77B,ooo,ooo. The gain over 1907 is $290,000,000. Greatest of all crops is com. the production this year being 2,643,000,000 bushels, worth $1,615,000,000. The crop is worth this year nearly as much as the great crops of cot ton, hay and wheat combined. The greatest hay crop in history has been gathered, 68,000,- 000tODS, or 12 per cent, above the average of the preceding five years. Its price is $2 a ton less than it was a year ago. Wheat is 14 per cent, above the five-year average in production and 23 per cent, above in total value The 660,000,000 bushels of this crop are estimated to be worth $620,000,000 to the farmers, or $66,000,000 more than the most valuable wheat crop heretofore produced. Although the oat crop suffered from drouth, the value is $321, 000,000 for 789,000,000 bushels, or 10 per cent, above the five-year average value and 9 per cent, below the average product. A reduction is announced in letter postage between the United States and Germanv to correspond with (berate between this c ninny and England. Meantime a parcel can be mailed to Europe for a lower rate than is charged ba tween any two American postoflices, though 39,000 rural delivery carriers are running with light loads. The postal deficit is clearly a misfit. William B. Newkirk, a farmer living near El mer, N. J., has so large a turnip crop that, not being able to take care of it, he is offering tur nips at 50 cents for a two-horse load. A CHRISTMAS 80NG OF PRAISE. BY HARRIETT* S. BAIN BRIDGE.
