THE BALTIMORE COUNTY UNION THE TOWSON NEWS SUPPLEMENT Look to Your Drainage. 1 The f jllowing is taken from a recent ' resume of a bulletin of the State Board of Health : “The Health Officers’ Bulletin tor May, just issued, reminds health officers that c tvpboid fever may be expected to begin 5 its regular summer rise about this time. \ The bulk of the summer typhoid, it is 2 stated, is still due in Maryland in the majority of instances to polluted water. . “Prompt action on the part of the health officers will prevent a large amount of unnecessary sickness and deaths, and the investigation of all pub -2 he water supplies,and as many private - supplies as possible during the early f summer months is recommended.” • Many persons buying suburban prop erty think they have secured good and sanitary drainage, when in reality the ! so called “systems” in their homes are i but traps to breed disease. We offer you : a system which has received the approval | of the best sanitary engineers and the health authorities. It is an irrigation ; plant that can be used on any suburban I lot that is as much as 150 feet deep, aud will cost only S4O and Consultations will cost nothing and | estimates will be cheerfully furnished. : Our motto is: “The best material and I workmanship at the most reasonable i price.” D.

INTERCLUB GRAttS SERIES They Play Rings Round Sub urbans, Who Are Licked Before They Battle. , Imagine an old cart horse going up against a field of classy trotters, every one of which can step it in 2:15, or fig i ures thereabouts, and you have a pretty i fair similitude of the figure cut by the all-Etar Suburbans when they stacked , against a similar aggregation selected , from the ranks of the Interclub in a series of three games at Oriole Park last week. The Suburban chaps are a nice , lot of ball tossers and have put up as fine an article of the game this season as local cranks were ever given an op portunity to rear on their hind' legs and howl at and otherwise disport them , selves as being fit subjects to have their cases diagnosed by expert alienists. The neck-and-neck race in the league, the deciding game of which will be pulled off to-day at Dundalk between the Highlanders and Swimmers, is evi dence that the clubs are pretty evenly matched. But when they essayed to humble the Interclub stars the specta tors were treated to an antithetical ex hibition. The first contest came off on Friday, when the Suburbans were flayed alive, being defeated 16 to 5. Manager Jenifer had all kinds of trouble with his salvo department. “Dal. II” was finally selected for the job and for a number of innings held the Interclub sluggers pret ty well in hand until he was relieved by “Honus” Spencer. “Honus” hasn’t pitched a game this season, and what they did to him would make more in teresting reading than that anticipated when Peary and Cook meet. The de feat waß so decisive that details would make painful reading. A crowd estimated at 1,000 persons witnessed the double-header Saturday afternoon. The first game went by the board 13 to 6, and the second, which only ran for six innings and was called on account of darkness, was won 12 to 6. The crowd applauded every good play and appeared to be in a jolly good humor. The Suburbans started off nicely in both contests, but they quickly fell down on their jobs. Russell, who has been pitching great ball this season, twirled the first game and five hits were secured off him. Hart was hit safely 15 times, a couple of them being for extra bases. Kuszmaul’a errors were very cosily. Hoff carried off the fielding honors, besides being a handy man with the stick, two of hiß clouts in the second game being triples.

(From Harper's Bazar j I found an appeal to the chivalry, to the grace of manner, to courtesy, never made in vain in France from the top to the bottom of society. One day, while making some sketches in the street, I was surrounded by a number of inter ested children ; they kept dancing in front of me in their enthusiasm, getting finally very much in my way. I ad dressed a little fellow, who seemed to be a ringleader, saying, “H£las ! oil est votre politesse francaise 7” He looked at me, then, with a mocking little grin, he planted himself in front of me, flap ping his arms in a clever way like wings, shrilly shouting, “O, Yankee doodle doo 1” I was thoroughly surprised and amused when he dramatically pulled his cap over his eyes, pulled up his cape collar, and folded his arms, becoming an absurd but unmistakable image of the Little Corporal, as with bent brows he addressed hiß comrades: “Boys, she is right. Fall in line! Face! March! Fall back ! The French do know how to be polite.” The boys all marched behind me, and not 6nce did one boy again forget and obstruct the view. Waterproofing Shoes. (From Country Life in America.) It is not always convenient or com fortable to wear rubbers when walking on damp country roads or wet city pave ments, but shoe soles may be rendered impervious to water by first warming them slightly and then giving them several coats of copal varnish, allowing each coat to dry thoroughly before the next is applied. An experimental road of sand and sawdust, well mixed, has proved suc cessful at Cambridge, Minn. THE UNION ESTABLISHED 1860 1 _ .. . . , Qno THE NEWB ESTABLISHED 19061 Conso,ldated 1009 The Post Office Department and Good Roads.—A letter from Washington says: “The recent great improvement in public roads throughout the country, followed by agitation of the subject until it has become one of the live topics of the day, has resulted in the receipt of many inquiries by the Post Office Department concerning the matter. U nder directions of Postroaster-General Hitch cock replies in detail are made to these com munications without reservation. "While the Post Office Department has nothing official to do with the matter of good roads or road building, it has co-operated with the Department of Agriculture, Division of Good Roads, where government aid is necessary and in that view the bureau of the Fourth Assistant Postmaster Geueral has been able to materially help the general cause through the avenues of rural delivery. “The Post Office Department has for a num ber of years been using every endeavor within the limits of its jurisdiction to secure the im provement of the public highways. It is essen tial for prompt delivery and collection of mails that roads over which rural delivery service is established shall be maintained in condition. This does not necessarily mean that the roads shall be of the highest improved type, but it does mean that they shall be kept smooth, free from ruts and drained. "Whenever report is made to the department that rural routes are in bad condition the road officials, postmaster and patrons are immedi ately notified that unless steps are taken with in a reasonable time to improve the condition of the roads service will be withdrawn from such roads. “In furtherance of its policy to secure good roads the department has been co-operating with road officials, federal, state and local, and with good roads associations. The result of the department’s unceasing demands for good roads has been most gratifying to those in charge of the service involved, and it is an es tablished fact that there has been more money appropriated for and spent on good roads dur ing the 13 years which rural delivery has been in operation than in any other period of the country’s history. "Many letters have recently been received at the Post Office Department from different States extending invitations to officials to at tend and address good roads conventions and express the attitude of the department upon the subject. Circumstances and conditions have compelled declinations of the invitations, but replies have been made, fully explaining why good roads are essential to the successful operation of the rural delivery service and stating that the department directly and through postmasters and carriers stands ready to co-operate in all good roads movements so far as conditions will permit.” The New Agricultural School for Balti more County.—A new departure for Balti morecounty teachers will be the establishment of a new agricultural high school to be located at Sparks’ Station, Northern Central Railway. The principal will be Mr. B. H. Crocherone, and Miss Troy, of Ithaca, N. Y.. is to be the vice-principal. The course of the school is to include no foreign languages, but in place of these there will be agriculture for the boys and domestic science for the girls. The school will have seven acres of land at tached, which will be utilized for agricultural experiments. The aim will be to prepare its pupils for life in the country by giving them an outdoor environment. Nature study will he one of the specialties of the high school course. The farmers of the neighborhood will hold their monthly meetings at the school, and will have the building serve as their central place of gathering. As it is known that 96 per cent, of the high school pupils do not pursue a further course in college, it is proposed to make this a finishing school as well as a preparatory school for such pupils as may desire to have further instruction in college courses. The equipment is thoroughly new and modern, with a granite fire-proof building having large class-rooms and laboratories. The courses are open to graduates of the seventh grade of the regular schools, and to others by special permission. The regular course of four years, leading to graduation or to college, includes studies in Arithmetic, Al gebra,Geometry, Rhetoric,Composition. Litera ture. American, English. European History, Public Speaking, Physiology, Commercial: Geography, Farm Book-Keeping, Botany, Chemistry, Physics, Agriculture, Domestic Science, Manual Training, with Laboratory work. The special course is intended for those who cannot complete a four year course. One or more terms of Agriculture, Domestic Science, or other subjects may be secured by special arrangement. No tuition fees are to be charged, except to pupils not residing in the county. The school will open on or about November 1. The Drought and the Baltimore County Corn Crop.—At the last meeting of the Junior Gunpowder Agricultural Club two of the ques tions asked were these: What is the condition of the corn crop? Answer—so per cent, or half a crop. Reference was made to Mr. Charles A. Coun cilman’s estimate being as low as 4 barrels to the acre. What lesson has the drought taught us 7 Answer—That patience is a virtue; also that deep plowing of the soil, a good seed-bed and thorough cultivation of the soil are essential, especially during a dry season. We should not let the weeds grow to deprive the crops of moisture. Clean corn fields show the best crops. Mr. W. D. Curry said his corn is better than ; the average. He prepared his ground well for ihe crop and subsoiled the field by having an mpleraent to follow in the furrow of the plow > and he thought the loose earth below was an advantage. He did not commence to culti ' vate his corn until it was a foot high and then 1 used a walking cultivator five times in two weeks. He has 25 acres in corn and will get 1 10 barrels to the acre. During the drought ’ the blades did not curl or shrivel. Mr. Wm. , H. Wight, it was said, will get 8 barrels to , the acre. ' Mr. Lewis M. Bacon said he planted 2J acres 1 of Mr. Wight’s seed corn and the ears are large, i with a great growth of fodder, it having been planted on low land. He said the drought has ■ taught us that we should not plant onr corn , too thick and we cannot cultivate corn too | well. • To Improve the Harford Road. —A special meeting of the Lauraville Improvement Asso -1 ciation was held on Tuesday night, to which the property-holders living along the Harford , road, between Markley avenue and Ailsa ave nue were invited. It was largely attended and much interest was manifested. . It was explained by Mr. Charles C. G. Sack, the president, that the object of the meeting was to obtain the opinion of the property holders in regard to giving up those portions of their property which will be required by the State Roads Commission to make the road of an equal width to the east side of the road from the car tracks, which now run on the west side of the road, and which it is intended shall not be disturbed. An extensive plat of the proposed road was exhibited, showing what space will be required. It runs from two feet to ten feet or more. A ’ willingness was expressed to give up the ground needed,.which is unimproved, and if the Com mission would consent, to move back the , houses which are now close to the road. It ’ was suggested that if sidewalks were built on ! the west side of the tracks that might be some compensation for those on the opposite side of the road, who are asked to give up their property. Straw will yield 40 per cent, of its weight in paper when made into that commodity. Cornstalks will yield 42 per cent.
