TOWSON, Md. Saturday, - - June 12,1909. LON6NECKER BROS., Editors and Proprietors. $1.50 per annum—in advance. Pottage pre~ paid. So subscription taken for lest than six months. BTC. * P. PHOHE-TOWSO* 211 A dispatch from Barre, Vt., says the largest piece of stone ever quarried in that State—a rock of granite containing 161,000 cubic feet— has been blasted ont at one of the quarries there. Figuring at the current value of $1.25 for one cubic fool, the great block is worth a little more than $200,000. Thk congregation of the old Presbyterian Church known as Drawyer’e, near Odessa, Del., celebrated the two hundred and first anniver sary of that historic building last Sunday. The ancient church is opened the first Sunday in JuDe each year for the exercises, under the auspices of the Friends of Old Drawyer’s, an association organized for this purpose. In the cemetery attached to this church many Rev olutionary heroes are buried. For the seventh consecutive time Mr. Harry A. Orrick was on Monday last elected presi dent of the Baltimore Stock Exchange. Messrs. Harry Pennington and J. C. Cooper were elected to the governing committee to serve until June, 1910. Messrs. Harry Fahnestock, Arnold E. Waters and Gordon P. Paine were elected to serve until June, 1912. Mr. Orrick, who is a banker and broker, is a resident of Green Spring Valley, Baltimore county. The frequency of cyclones in Oklahoma does not square with the theory of cyclonic conditions growing out of forest denudation. Foliage in Oklahoma now is greater than it was twenty years ago, but cyclones are more numerous. The problem is one of air currents, and if we ever solve it we will in all probability be able to do nothing more than issue warning bulletins by wireless telegraphy. This, how ever, may prove to be much if it leads to in dicated measures of precaution and provision. Col. Alexander McClure, one of the most distinguished newspaper editors of the country, died at his country borne at Wallingford, near Philadelphia, last Sunday morning, aged 81 years. Col. McClure was born in Perry coun ty, Pa., and was the son of a farmer in very moderate circumstances. He ended his school life at the age of 14 and was then apprenticed to a tanner of the neighborhood. He took an interest in his county paper when a boy and became a friend of the editor. This was his first experience in a profession that made him a great name in later life. The new train service which the Burlington and Northern Pacific systems have combined to put in force between Chicago and Seattle to make close connection with the Pennsylvania’s eighteen-hour flier from New York, is expec ted to result in the transmission of mail and passengers from New York to Seattle in four days. The actual schedule time for this ser vice is ninety-five hours and thirty-five min utes from coast to coast. The Burlington and Northern Pacific also has put on another train leaving Chicago at night and due to reach Seattle in seventy-two hours. Leipsic, in Germany, has been so troubled with malaria that the city authorities have de termined on a campaign to stamp out mosqui toes. Every householder will be asked to kill all the insects in his own apartments, after which inspectors will go around to see that thorough work has been done. As the mos quito breeds only in pools of stagnant water, marsh land, rain barrels and so on, it is some what surprising to hear of a German town being a mosquito breeder. That we thought was a privilege enjoyed exclusively by badly governed American cities. Because two men were acquitted of robbery in a Chicago court a few days ago Judge McEwen denounced the jurors and ordered the accused men to "go and shake haDds with your friends in the jury box.” Continuing he said : "You men are discharged from further service, and you get no pay for today. You can go now, but I cannot believe your verdict was an honest one." The Judge also ordered the clerk to turn over two revolvers which were found in the possession of the meD when they were arrested, and added : “Give those guns and cartridges to the defendants. They may want to use them again.” At Stamford, Conn., last week Dr. William J. Long, the writer on nature subjects who was assailed by President Roosevelt as one of the nature fakers, gave out a long interview dealing with the present African hunting trip of the former President. He said that the worst feature of tbe “whole bloody business” was the brutalizing effect which the reports from Africa must have on the minds of thous ands of American boys. If the published re ports of his exploits were true, continued Dr. Long, they proved what he had said two years ago, that Mr. Roosevelt “is a game butcher pure and simple, and that his interest in ani mals lies chiefly in the direction of blood, butchery and brutality.” R. L. Jones, State Superintendent of Public Instruction in Tennessee, has been quoted as saying that half of the teachers there are in competent. The Knoxville Journal and Tri bune admits that the situation is bad, though it thinks it is improving, says that much of the trouble is due to inadequatesalaries and to favoritism shown by district boards of school directors in the selection of teachers. Poor pay for teachers necessarily involves a poor qual ity of instructors. But give good pay and poor school trustees and the condition is just as bad, if not worse. There is often as much wisdom as sting in tbe keen remark of Mark Twain : “It is true the Lord made idiots. He did it byway of experiment. Then he made school boards.” The business of one well-known firm of op ticians in England consists largely in tbe man ufacture of horse spectacles. The object of the spectacles is to promote high stepping. They are made of stiff* leather, entirely closing the eyes of the horse and the glasses used are in deep concave and large in size. The ground seems, to tjie horse, to be raised, and he steps high, thinking he is going up hill or has to step over some obstacle. This system of spec tacles is generally adopted while the horse is young, and its effect on his step and knee ac tion is said to be remarkable. It has been dis covered that the cause of a horse’s shying is, as a rule, short sight, and it is now suggested that the sight of all horses should be tested like that of children. It looks like William JeDnings Bryan was putting himself in trim for the national campaign of 1912. He is not pleased with the status of a number of Democratic Congress men on the tariff question and in the latest issue of his newspaper he said : “Democratic voters, you cannot begin too soon to select candidates for Congress. In about a year the campaign will be on, and upon that campaign Will largely depend the hope of the party in 1912. Let those Democrats who believe in pure and undefiled Democracy get together in each district and pick out a Democrat who can not be bought or frightened. The trusts have stealthily secured control of some of the Con gressmen who were elected as Democrats, and they will have tbe confidence of the trusts in securing a renomination. No time is to be lost; now is the time to organize the real Dem ocrats ; to secure Congressmen whose Demo cracy is real.” From Col. Bryan’s viewpoint wonder what a “real Democrat” looks like. Special to The Union. LETTER FROM ABROAD. Correspondent Takes a Trip to “Purgato ry”—Priest Claims to Have Collection of Objects of Supernatural Origin —Artists Examine Strange Pic ture—What Young Novice Saw at Night, etc., etc. Rome, Italy, June 6tb, 1908. Messrt. Editors:— While seated one morning In tbe reading room of Cook’s tourist office, in the Piazza di Spague, with my elbow propped on a table littered with pamphlets advertising vari ous attractive excursions that could be made in the neighborhood of Rome, such as a “Trip to Tivoli with Signore Tani,” “Along the Appian Way in Automobile,” “A Da; Among the Alban Hills,” etc., my eyes were suddenly arrested by a red bound brochure entitled, “A Little Journey to Purgatory.” Personally Conducted by Father Victor Joubt. I thought It must be a joke- book, may be a cari caturist's concentrated edition of Elbert Hub bard’s “Little Journeys to tbe Home* of Great Men;” but no, it was a sincere, albeit friendly in vitation to go to hell, and I went. Instead of crossing the Styx In Charon’s boat. I crossed the Tiber in a tram-car, and instead of passing through a gloomy cavern-like portal, guarded by Cerberus, I entered the infernal regions via a modern church in the vicinity of the new city court house. Doubtless lam not the first who has chosen a similar route to perdition. Father Jouet is a priest who has devoted his life to tbe collection of objects bearing marks and finger prints of alleged supernatural origin, tending to show that purgatory is a definite geographical spot in tbe universe, and that the unhappy souls, who have been plunged therein to expiate their sins, live literally in a lake of fire. These relics he has preserved in a museum at No. 12 Lungo Tevere Prati. next door to tbe church above mentioned. Visitors are shown tbe church first as a sort of preparation for tbe extraordinary sights which are to follow. It is decorated with frescoes and paintings repre senting the torments of the lower regions, and above the altar is a realistic panorama illumined by red lights showing a sea of flames In which men and women are struggling. Twelve years ago, beside the altar, an event occurred which Fatner Jouet and many other Romans regard as a miraculous endorsement of the priest’s project to prove to the world the material existence of purgatory. One night, at an hour when no one was in the church.a candle fell from the altar setting afire some velvet cur tains. The blaze crept along a wooden railing and finally spent itself against a plaster wall where the woodwork ended without doing further damage. Next morning when Father Jouet and his con freres discovered tbe accident they set about at once to clear away the ashes and have the place repaired. “This section of the wall will have to be replastered. See how curiously it has been discolored by the fire and smoke,” remarked one of the priests, and then suddenly raised his hands in amazement toward the stain. The flames had traced a picture on the wall! Not a grotesque.pbantasmagoric.shadowy smoke effect, requiring an effort of tbe taagination to discern, but a human face and figure outlined as clearly as if depicted by the painter’s brush- an old man clothed in a red robe, wearing on bis head a bishop’s mitre and standing waist deep in flames. “A soul In purgatory!” cried Father Jouet. “And a bishop!” whispered the others. That same morning Father Jouet visited the Vatican and communicated his strange discov ery to the Pope. Now, as all the world knows, Leo XIII was strong on natural sciences and not much of a believer in latter-day miracles, so he turned the matter over to a committee of emi nent painters for a cold, technical examination. The artists readily admitted that it was a real picture and lost no time in arriving at quite a simple explanation of the phenomenon. It was an old fresco, they said, representing a bishop or cardinal of the early church being burned at the stake as a martyr. It had been effaced by time, or by a thin coat of plaster or whitewash, and the sudden heat comiDgin contact with tbe wall had brought out these old outlines and colors. It was a most extraordinary work of art, they said, and were beginning to analyze its style for the purpose of assigning it to a particular date and school when Father Jouet calmly set their wisdom at naught by proving that the wall was only two years old, that be himself had superin tended its construction, and that it had been plastered with ordinary lime and mortar by a common workman who still lived in a neighbor ing street and who recollected having been paid 40 a day for the job. “Astonishing 1” exclaimed the learned artists* and gave it up. Months passed and the fame of the miraculous picture was noised abroad. Other artists came to marvel and persons of devout faith to pray; one day an eminent church historian from tbe Piedmont came to Rome and dropped in casually to see the picture; Scarcely had his eyes rested upon the features when he turned pale as death and gasped in Father Jouet’s ear: “My God, man, don’t you know ? That face ! Its Cardinal!” And he mentioned tbe name of a great prelate who had been dead for more than a quarter of a century. I saw the mysterious picture with my own eyes. It is an awe-inspiring visage, a nightmare of a face, which haunts the imagination for hours afterward. It is no accident or freak of nature. It was executed by a master's haDd, whether of man or spirit. It shows design. From the church Father Jouet conducted me to the museum. Tbe objects it contains are difficult to describe. Imagine a piece of linen, a book or a wooden table upon which a red hot human band, a band of flesh and blood, glowing with heat and yet not withered or consumed, has lain for a fraction of a second, just long enough to leave the scorched, blackened im print of the fingers and palm, but not long enough to set the object ablaze. Tbe museum contains twenty or thirty articles bearing such imprints, collected from all parts of Europe, each with a separate terrible history of its own. Persons without faith in tbe supernatural are of course disinclined, even after having seen these things, to credit the theory that they have actually been touched by souls returning from purgatory to eartb, but no one who has seen tbe collection and the documents accompanying it, and who has afterward talked with Father Jouet, can harbor the suspicion that the fiery finger prints have been fraudulently fabricated with the deliberate intention to deceive. That they have been “faked,” to use an American slang expression. Whatever is the real origin of these imprints Father Jouet believes them to be ex actly what he represents them to be. Tbe Reverend Mother Angela, a nun at the Ursuline Convent at Sommieres, of which the Abbot Leonard was the chaplain, died about two decades ago, at the age of 35 years. She was venerated as a saint by tbe whole community, and no one thought it necessary to say masses for her soul or pray for her deliverance from "purgatory, because it was taken for granted that she went straight to heaven. Shortly after Mother Angela's death a young girl from Clermont presented herself as a novice at the door of the convent. She was called Sister Maria, was pious, intelligent and full of zeal. One day she said to the Abbot Leonard, her con fessor: “Father, I am afraid to stay in my room alone at night!” “Why, what’s the matter, my child ?” asked tbe aged priest. “For several nights I have not been able to sleep; each night, just as the clock is striking 12, a strange light enters my room and hovers above the stool on which I am accustomed to kneel before my little altar. It is like a candle flame suriounded by mist or fog. I am sick from fear.” Tbe old chaplain patted the child on the head, laughed good-naturedly at her story and told her she must have been dreaming. But Sister Maria, who continued to be visited by the mys terious light, not getting any satisfaction from the chaplain, finally demanded and obtained per mission to speak to the Mother Superior. The latter also treated the matter lightly, but as she had some writing to do that night and was anx ious to calm the girl's fears she consented to sit up and watch with her. Neither saw anything that night, and the Mother Superior took ad van. tage of the negative experience to ridicule the simplicity of Sister Maria and declare that she was the victim of her own imagination, but the child, certain as to what she bad seen, insisted that the Mother Superior return the next night, and midnight found the two again seated together in the cell, one trembling with expec tation.the other sceptical. Suddenly the young er rose, panting and perspiring with tenor, and stretched out her arms toward something which she wished to show her companion. The latter saw nothing until Sister Maria cried out“ Mother, it is a nun!” Then the figure became visible to both, lumi nously visible, yet dim of outline, like the white nuns who flit across the cloister court-) ard in the shadows on a moonlight night. The appari tion began to speak; “I have returned from purgatory to ask that three masses be said for my soul, and that for nine days all the sisters of the convent pray earnestly for my deliverance.” This said the spectre disappeared. For nine days the regular life of the community was interrupted, special masses were said and perpetual prayers offered for the repose of the unhappy nun. But who could It be? The Abbott Leonard was inclined to think probably a certain sister, Agostina, who had died a month or two previous and who bad possibly been sent to purgatory to temper her disposition, which had not been most gentle during her earth-life. During these nine days the apparition did not return and sister Maria slept soundly, but on the tenth night she was awakened by a mysterious light and found the spectre standing by her bed. “Fear nothing!” it said, “It is only I.” “But who are you ?” “I am Mother Angela! Thank the commu nity in my name for their prayers. My condi tion has been greatly ameliorated, though the oraisons of some of tbe sisters have been use less because they were offered with incredulity. Tell tbe Abbot Leonard not to reproach him self. It is not bis fault that I have suffered so. I am condemned to nine more days of torment, after which I will be admitted to heaven. But listen; would you like to save your own soul and at tbe same time ease my pain by suffering in my stead ?” Sister Maria accepted the penance and for nine days remained fastiDg in her cell, daily in flicting upon herself severe bodily pains. When midnight of tbe last day came the devoted girl lay prostrate on the floor of her cell half uncon scious, so weakened by her fasting and self inflicted tortures that she was unable to drag herself to bed. Suddenly the little chamber was filled with a lurid, unearthly glare, and she felt a burniDg hand laid an her shoulder, and beard a voice which said: “Tonight is my last hour in purgatory. Thanks to your willingness to share my suffering. I can already see afar the opening gates of Para dise.” Here Father Jouet closed bis story, while I bent to examine with breathless interest Sister Maria's scorched sleeve. There, indeed, in blackened outlines, was tbe unmistakable im print of a woman’s band. “And the drops of blood ?’’ I asked. “A scourge with leaden pellets,” replied the priest. Seabrook. Correspondence Baltimore County Union. AN ECLIPSE OF THE SDN COMING. . Woodlawn, Md., June 9tb, 1909. An eclipse of the sun Is an event which never fails to arouse general interest. Such a phe nomenon is always looked forward to by persons in all walks of life. As an eclipse, partially visi ble here, will occur in a few days, a sketch of it may prove of Interest to the general reader. On Thursday, June 17th, about 15 or 20 minutes before sunset, a small notch may be detected in the setting sun. This will gradually increase in size until lost to view by the sun sinking below the western horizon. This is about all that can be seen here, but from another point of view it is an extremely interesting eclipse, being total in some portions of the earth and the path of totality exhibiting some unusual phases. It is very well known that an eclipse of the sun is caused by tbe moon coming between tbe sun and eartb and thereby cutting off his light. It is probably not so well known that these eclipses repeat themselves at regular intervals, or return again after a period of 18 years and 10 days. This period was discovered by the Chal deans and by means of it eclipses were pre dicted, although such methods will not do for the modern astronomer. It is probably still less known that these eclipses come in, run their course and pass off in about a thousand years not to return again for more than a hundred centuries. The present eclipse is the first of a long series of total eclipses which will occur at regular intervals of 18 years, 10 or 11 days, until it shall have passed off into space, not to return again for more than ten thousand years. This series began as a small partial eclipse around the north pole and increased in magni tude at each return until in 1891 the central line touched the earth in high northern latitudes and passed over portions of Siberia and the Arctic ocean. This time it was annular and of very short duration. On June 17th the moon’s shadow cone will touch the earth in 12 seconds after tbe line of centres, consequently the eclipse will then change from annulai to total. This will occur in northern Chinese Empire. The shadow path will then pass north by east, crossing Silterta, the Arctic ocean and quite near the north pole; thence southeast and ending in southern Greenland. About 45 seconds before the central line leaves the earth the shadow cone will pass off and the eclipse will again change from total to annular. Quite near the pole the eclipse will occur at noon and the sun will be totally eclipsed for 22 seconds, but on account of it being somewhat difficult to make a journey to those regions, it will probably not be very generally observed; at least no government so far as I have learned has sent out an expedition to observe it. With us only a very small portion will be visi ble, beginning a few minutes after 7 o’clock, and tbe sun will set partially eclipsed. The eclipse will end entirely in southern Missouri at sunset. This eclipse will return in 1927- June 29th. This time the path of totality being further south and will pass through England, Norway, Sweden, Arctic ocean, Siberia, and ending in Behring sea. The people of Northern England will have an opportunity of seeinga total eclipse, but the time of totality will be very short. With us it will be entirely invisible, but on the return in 1945 the path of totality will cross parts of the United States and Canada. J. B. H. The United States Supreme Court has ren dered its decision in favor of Mrs. Elizabeth Peck, tbe lowa temperance advocate, who sued the Chicago Tribune for libel on account of its having published a picture of the plaintiff in connection with an advertisement of a certain brand of whisky. The picture was printed over tbe name of another woman described as a nurse, quoted as indorsing the whisky. The publisher was held responsible, even though the publication may have been by mistake. The Illinois Legislature amended the game law in away to prevent any man from killing more than ten wild geese in a day. This is a law which will be very generally ob served. The man who can kill more than that number of that elusive bird in a day is always the man who does it either at the club or around tbe bar-room stove. A man who is said to be the oldest veteran on the United States pension rolls is Micajah Wise, of Beaver Brook, Sullivan county, N. Y„ who has just applied for an increase of bis pension. He is 108 years old and still hale and hearty. Mr. Wise was a member of Gen. Phil Sheridan’s cavalry that routed Early’s army in Shenandoah Valley.

BOSLEY, —CANDIDATB fob county SURVEYOR, Subject to the Democratic Primaries. To the Democratic Yotereof Baltimore County ; I was appointed by the County Commissioners of Baltimore county to fill out the unexpired term as Surveyor of. the late Col. Charles B. McClean, and at that time I took as an equal partner in the Surveying business Mr. Fred. D. Dollenberg, Jr., which partnership still con tinues under the firm name of Bosley & Dollen berg. Two years ago I was booked to succeed myself as County Surveyor, but just a short time before tbe meeting of the Convention I was asked by the leaders of the party to give way to Mr. Dol lenberg on account of the political situation of the Bth district, of which I was then and am now a resident. Mr. Dollenberg would not then have been thought of for that position had it not been that he was my partner, and that the partnership was to continue for at least two years. Mr. Dollenberg is now a candidate in his own name and right for re-election, although when I stepped aside for him to benefit the Democratic ticket two years ago, be told me without any solicitation on my part that he would not in fu ture run in opposition to me for tbe same office. He knew very well that it was understood he was to hold that office in my stead for the one term. If Mr. Dollenberg continues a candidate there will be an end of our partnership on or be fore January next. t I am a candidate for County Surveyor and .feel constrained to publish this statement to show why and how Mr. Dollenberg occupies the posi tion of County Surveyor, and I ask you, each and every Democratic voter of the county, to consider well the respective claims of Mr. Dol lenbergand myself before casting bis vote in the coming Democratic Primaries.
