Feudal! & Bon, of Towson, have made many shipments of straw berry plants this week, one lot going to tbe State or Idaho.

Afraid he’a impossible. —►They are now calling Gen. Ferdinand C Latrobe, the seven times mayor of Baltimore, "tbe grand old man” of the city, and that is what be undoubtedly is. but we’ve got one thing against him.

Mr. Muninia was a resident of the 11th district of this county before removing to Harford. —* Plans are rapidly maturing for the fire men's convention in Towson, Wednesday, May stb. It is just about a moDth to that time, and when the aate arrives everything will be in shape to insure a big success. Several thous and strangers will be in Towson that day and there will be plenty here to feed and otherwise provide for them. There is only one McCallister and be lives at Hamiltoo. And it looks like Hamil ton wouldn’t be on the map if it wasn’t for McCallister Tbe last thiDg they did to Me- Callister was to write poetry about him. What the man ever did to be treated like that we fail to see. Evidently they took advantage of him when be wasn’t lookin’. —•While standing in front of the Piper Building in Towson last Saturday one of tbe tires of Mr. Frank X. Hooper’s automobile ex ploded with a loud report and caused some ex citement for a time. Fortunately nobody was in tbe car and no one was injured.

West, who had been in failing health a long time, died at the Union Protestaut Infirmary, in Baltimore, on Tues day night, aged 35 years.

Hill, a Howard couoty farmer who had taken him up in bis wagon to ride, was on Tuesday sentenced to twelve years in the penitentiary, having plead guilty before the court. It was at tbe preliminary hearing of Hatwood that the floor of a hall in Ellicott City gave way and injured many people, two of whom dyiDg afterwards. —► Thieves have lately been making no end of trouble for farmers in the upper end of the county. They carry off corn, poultry, harness and other movable articles, and they appear to enjoy entire immunity from arrest. Some organized efforts should be made to land these thieves in the penitentiary. Farmers and others who pay taxes to help support the local government should have their property pro tected. —A petition is in circulation among the friends and patrons of the public schools (says tbe Belsir Democrat) to release tbe small chil dren below tbe fifth grade after the noon hour or morning session. This is so rational a re quest that there should be no hesitation in granting it. To overtax with study and con finement small children, especially duriDg the warm weather, is unsanitary, unwise and un necessary. —•Mr. W Gill Smith, executor of the estate of the late John T. B. Parlett, sold on his farm iD lower Long Green Valley, on Wednesday, all the personal effects of the deceased, the sale amounting to nearly (2,000. One pairof mnles bronght (530 and corn sold from (4.40 to (4.60 per barrel. The farm was offered at the same time and was withdrawn on a bid of (16,500. The sale was conducted by John V. Slade, anctioneer. —Someone has made complaint because The Union is not keeping up its fight against the annex tuberculosis hospital in Towson. It is still here and when tbe health authorities say there is no way to drive it out—no law to reach the person who runs it—what is the use of keeping up the fight ? We will say this, that we do not believe there is another town in Maryland, except Towson, that would tolerate such a thing a single day. Then why Tow son? Let those answer who can. —• A very remarkable case was disposed of in Cecil County Circuit Court last Monday. It was removed from Harford county and the title of tbe case was Streett vs. Bradford. It was tried first in Harford and Streett obtained a verdict iD 1885 against Bradford, on an open account, for (1.150, with iuterest. The Court of Appeals ordered a new trial and Streett again won. Again it went to the higher court and after slumbering thirteen years another new trial was ordered and it went to Cecil county. In the last trial Btreett got judgment for the full amount, with interest from 1862. By the last verdict Streett got a judgment for (4,359. Will Form a Permanent Road Organi zation. —TbeJchairmeD of all authorized com mittees appointed during the receDt road cam paign, met at tbe Hotel Junker, Baltimore, last Saturday and decided to meet Saturday, April 3d, at the same place, when a permanent good roads commission for Baltimore county will be formed. The purpose of this orgaDiza lion will betodevise waysand means by which the present road system can be made more efficient. A general invitation has been ex tended to the citizens of Baltimore county and a large attendance is expected.

Lockjaw Soon Ends Life —Mr. Frederick Fanth, aged 72 years, a well-known resident of Catonsville. died last Bunday afternoon at the Maryland University Hospital, following a three-day illness from lockjaw. A mystery surrounds the death of Mr. Fanth, since his attending physician. Dr. J. Charles Mac Gill, ! and the hospital physicians are puzzled to know what induced the fatal illness. Not a cut or a scratch could be found od his body i and before be was taken sick on Thursday be i was apparently in tbe best of health. He was taken to the hospital on Saturday, but his con t dition was such that the physicians at once pronounced his case hopeless. | Mr. Fauth was one of the best known truck i farmers in the Ist district. Besides his widow he is survived by one son—Mr. Charles Fauth $ —and three brothers and two sisters. One of I 1 the brothers is Mr. George Fauth. an appraiser I in tbe Baltimore county Orphans’ Court. i Jacksonville aDd Sunnybrook, lOtb Dis trict.—Mr Frank Schmidt, of Baltimore, son ’ i of Mrs. B. A. Maier, near Bweet Air. has rented ! tbe blacksmith shop at Manor and will shortly remove his family there. Mr. Schmidt learned I his trade when quite yonng at Bunnybrook | and afterwards removed to tbe city. Farmers are busily engaged preparing for , planting tbeir potatoes and getting tbeir corn ground in condition. If the weather in April sbonld prove damp aDd cold they will have ! plenty of time in May forcorn planting. With ! the exception of the heavy snow storm the ! weather during March was all that conld be £ev. Mr. McNeil, the pastor of Chestnut Grove Presbyterian Church, preached there last Sunday morning, bnt the attendance was not as good as it wonld have been had the weather been more favorable. Hereafter he will fill this pulpit regularly every Bunday morning. Min Nau conducted the Christian Endeavor meeting at this church last Sunday evening, and as a consecration service will be held next Sunday evening it is desired that every En deavorer will be present. Tbe Lenten services which have been held at St. Job D’s Lutheran Chnrch, near Sweet Air, by the pastor, Rev. O. E. Swinehart, have been well attended. Mr. BwiDebart is very popular with tbe people acd many connected with other churches attended these services. Mr. Sidney Waters, who recently purchased a farm adjoining Dr. Thomas H.

Miss Mamie Snitker, of Baltimore, who had been visiting her cousins, Misses Anna and Ollie Burk, near Sweet Air, has returned home. Since his marriage a ebort time ago Mr. Joseph C. Miller has been serenaded by three bands of music—the Sunnvbrook Band, the Long Green Band and on Thursday night of last week by the Warren Band. Mr. Miller is a musician who plays almost any instrument and ofteD assists these bands in tbeir engage ments. Most of the members are his iDtimate friends. M. Pleasant Hill, oth District. —March has been rather a disagreeable month, with a vari ety of weather hard to beat. It came in with a heavy snow storm and is making its exit quite squally. This is “flitting” time and a number of folks seem to eujoy changing around and getting new landlords. Emory Matthews, of Hoffmanville, has lo cated with E. D. Wilson, near Rayville. Mrs. Caroline Gore, of New Freedom, moved on Tuesday to her daughter’s, Mrs. F. P.

Mrs Sallie Wilson, of Rayville, has been very much indisposed the past week. Mrs. Rosa Taylor, of tne same place, is in feeble health.

Chase, 15th District.—Maryland Day, 25th of March, was celebrated by pupils of Chase school with appropriate exercises consisting of patriotic songs, recitations and the reading of original essays on Maryland. On Friday afternoon, March 26th, Prof. Nor ton, of the Maryiand Agricultural College, State pathologist, gave a very iniereatiog lec lure at the above school on “How Green Things Keep the World Alive” Mr. R.

E. churches will tender a reception in Chase Hall, to the retiring pastors of Great Falls Circuit, and extend a welcome to their successors L. Freeland, N. C. R. R.—Seldom seeing any thing in print from this place I desire to men tion some cf the changes and improvements that have taken place since I first became a resident here, 63 years ago. During 57 years I was the postmaster at Freeland and also con ducted a general store for upwards of 44 years. I consider this one of the most healthful com munities to be found anywhere, although within a little over the year past 14 aged per sons have departed this life within a radius of a fraction over a mile from this point. When I first came here a single dwelling house and an old stable were all the buildings to be seen. Now there are 10 dwelling houses besides 12 other buildiDgs, including a large bank barn, which is a great convenience on a farm. The Railroad Company has erected a fine station house on the west side of its tracks and Conewago Tribe, No. 74, Improved Order of Red Men, of which 1 am a charter member, occupies every Saturday night the second story of a large warehouse which Mr. Freeland built some years ago. The first story is used for oyster suppers and other public gatherings, and tbe south end of tbe building is occupied as a dwelling by Mrs. Eaton, a widow lady. We have also two general stores, which in connec tion with tbeir other stock of goods supply the community with feed and agricultural imple ments. Tbe Railroad Company has also erected a large water tank and a two story signal office, where telegraph operators are kept on duty during the entire twenty-four hours of each day. Id addition to all other natural advan tages thespring water hereabouts is unexcelled, and although our village may not be as large as some others along tbe line of the railroad north of us, yet it is gradually growing and we are proud of it. James L. Gemmill. Dulany’a Valley, 10th District.—Mrs. Thomas Mann, who had been in Baltimore, has returned to her home, Windsor Heights farm. Mrs. G. Frank Morgan, of this valley, who has 100 laying hens, one day last week got 91 Minna Sabis, who bad been visiting Mrs. Peter Gompf, has returned to her home in Mt. Washington.

Tbe Elkridge Hounds met on Windsor Farm last Saturday and bad a spirited run. E. Belair Road Items.—The fight for the State road is still waging hot, but not in as open manner as before, and the residents expect this road to be finally decided upon. Tbe remarks made by some of the Harford road adherents are amusing if nothing else. One of the young lovers of Windy Edge, who , was “sparking” three girls at once, received a loving missive from one of them but could not read it. So asked his neighbor (also a miss) to read it for him, but while she read it he held , both of her ears closed so she could not hear what she read. When the writer of the mis , si ve heard of it she gave the youngster the grand skiddoo. Another suicide at Gardenville. When is this going to stop? No race suicide on this road, f Truckers are hard at work with spring . planting. Spring house cleaning is in order. C. Monkton, N. C. R. R.—The faneral of Mrs. | Margaret Merry man widow of John J.

The pall bearers were Messrs, i Thomas J. Miller, Edward Bosley, Harry B. Alder, Wm. Pearce, John Young and Dr. T. Ross Payne. Wm. C. Brooks had charge of tbe faneral arrangements. Mrs. Merryman was 85 years of age and Mrs. Sarah Slade, who passed away last week, was 87 years old. Thus two of our seed and venerated octogenarians have been translated in the past week. Among the sick at this time are Mr. Mat thews, at M anor store, who is confined to bed with grip. Little Willie Hunt, son of Mr. Hugh Hunt, of the Manor, is ill with pneu monia. , .

Water Company Can Introduce Supply from the Patapsco.—On Wednesday the Couuty Commissioners removed their restric tions npon the Baltimore County Water and Electric Company which prevented it from bringing water in pipes from its source of sup ply at Avalon, on the Patapsco river, to Tow son. This action was taken as the result of a petition of Towson people, although there are some residents of the town who protested bit terl.v against the restrictions being removed, as Towson now has an artesian well supply. The Commissioners, however, after taking everything into consideration, decided in favor of the Water Company, provided the latter will agree to have the water examined chemically at least three times a year. It is understood these terms are satisfactory to the company. On the other hand, there is considerable op position to tbe grautingofthe concession to the company, and it is probable there will be an appeal to the Circuit Court. Tbe Commissioners filed a written decision in tbe matter, which is in part as follows; The Commissioners, after carefully investi gating the facts and circumstances relating thereto, have come to the conclusion that there is no longer any valid reason for denying to tbe citizens of Towson and tbe surrounding country, and especially those who are entirely without water, the privilegeof obtaining water from some other source than the artesian well at Aigburth, Dear Towson. That the water derived from this well is not now sufficient to supply the requirements of Towson and vicinity is apparent from facts ascertained from the statements made at the hearing and from our own investigations, and in regard to which there seems to be no dispute. The Commissioners further state that the re sult of tbe test made by tbe expert employed by tbe Towson Improvement Association shows 30 gallons per minute. Therefore it is stated that if this well supply is only relied on “about 400 houses in the restricted area would be altogether deprived of water, which would be a manifest hardship upon those who have no other way of getting water.” It is stated that those residents of the restricted area who specially object to using the Avalon water for drinking purposes have an opportunity of or ganizing a company and leasing the Aigburth well plant or of digging other wells and furnish ing themselves with artesian water. The Commissioners also state that Towson is in daDger of great damage by fire owing to a re stricted water supply. “We have therefore concluded, in order to prevent serious hardship and injustice to any citizens in the restricted area and tbeir families, that it is imperative upon us, our duty in the premises, to remove the restrictions heretofore imposed.” The Commissioners propose to pass a formal order removing the restrictions, to take effect the first day of June, 1909. • Wills Filed for Probate.—The will of Charles H. Wier, a well known Baltimore hardware merchant, whose summer home is near Towsod, was on Tuesday admitted to probate in the Orphans’ Court here. The tes tator’s son, Charles H.

Suicide of Another Member of thelQulck Family.—Remorseful as the result of the sui cide of bis father, which be feared he had pre cipitated, George Quick, Jr., 21 years old, a sailor in the United States battleship fleet in its cruise around the world, ended his life by drinking laudanum and carbolic acid. The deed was done last Saturday night and was the second suicide in the Quick family in the two weeks. On March 15th Quick’s father, George Quick, Sr., a retired farmer, living on Bowley’s lane, near the Belair road, took his life by swallow ing carbolic acid during a fit of despondency caused by a suit for damages for assault brought by his son, and since that time it is said young Qqick had been brooding over the death of his parent. Shortly after the return of the Atlantic bat tleship fleet young Quick went to his home, expecting, it is said, that the fatted calf would be killed and a feast in honor of bis return, but for some reason, which has never been fully explained, the elder Quick did not en thuse much over bis son’s home-coming. In fact, it is said, they even quarreled on the first day of the arrival of the wanderer, and that blows were exchanged. As the result of this meeting young Quick sued his father, claiming damages for assault, but before the case could come to trial the elder Quick ended his life. Since then young Quick had been living with his uncle, Mr. Jacob Quick, on the Belair road, near Southern ave. Last Saturday night he retired about 11 o’clock, and was apparently in good spirits. As the youDg mau was always a late sleeper on Sunday morniDgs nothing was thought of it when he failed to arise at the same time as the other members of the family. When he did not put in an appearance at 11 o'clock, how ever, an investigation was begirn, with the re suit that the lifeless body of the young man was found lying in bed. Two empty bottles, labeled “carbolic acid” and "laudanum,” ly ing on the floor nearby, told the story. As soon as the family got over the shock the golice were communicated with and Round ergeant Meise hurried to the house to make an investigation Later Justice J Harman Schone was summoned and a jury of iuquest was impaneled. The dead man was well known in the neigh borhood in which he lived He is survived by a mother and several brothers and sisters.

The selections cover a wide range of Maryland history, and no section of the State has been neglected. With the accurate and extensive notes this volume is certain to have the effect of stimulating and inspiring patriotic interest in State and county history, and to serve a very useful purpose as a compi lation for reference and suggestion. The book is designed, says the Baltimore Sun, “to meet the increasing demand for more accessible in formation pertaining to the State, and it will familiarize Marylanders with many gems of poetic expression for which the State and its mountains and streams have been the inspira tion, and it also presents in concise form and eloquent words stirring aDd heroic events of State and national history in which Maryland men and women have played gallant parts. From varied sources the selections have been chosen and the details of many half-forgotten deeds of military and civic greatness thus re called. Dr. M. Bates Stephens, State superin tendentof education, contributes an apprecia tive introduction to the book, in which he commends it as especially practical and help ful to teachers in providing well selected litera ry material for use in schools on patriotic oc casions.” To the general reader the book will also appeal strongly, as containing much valu able material not generally accessible.
