THE BALTIMORE COUNTY UNION THE TOWSON NEWS SUPPLEMENT Look to Your Drainage. The fjllowing is taken from a recent resume of a bulletin of the State Board of Health : “The Health Officers’ Bulletin for May, just issued, reminds health officers that tvphoid fever may be expected to begin its regular summer rise about this time. The bulk of the summer typhoid, it is 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 lic water supplies and as many private supplies as possible during the early 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 but traps to breed disease. We offer you a system which has received the approval of the be9t sanitary engineers and the health authorities. It is an irrigation plant that can be used on any suburban lot that is as much as 150 feet deep, and will cost only S4O and upward. Consultations will cost’ nothing and estimates will be cheerfully furnished. Our motto is: “The best material and workmanship at the most reasonable price.” D. Fred.

Mere glory was not all the reward the Highlanders received for bringing the pennant to Towson, for in addition they were feted, toasted, serenaded and dined, but not wined; all of this took place at George Tracey’s Hotel Smed ley, Towson.last Monday night. To the strains of “Maryland, My Maryland,” the members of the club marched to the dining hall and arranged themselves at the long tables with the same eager ness with which they took the field against their opponents. Then followed the subscribers to the banquet. “Pete” Isaac as toastmaster, “Tom” Offutt, “Bill” Cole and “Tabby” Dukehart* members of the baseball committee, held down the east end of the table, whiletbe “Little Man” and Captain Grason pre. sided over the west end. There were i piles of fried chicken, gen erous helpings of oysters on toast, big slices of Mar)- land ham, slaw, long, thin cubes of nicely-browned potatoes, smoking-Lot lima beans, Maryland biscuit, fragrant i Mocha—and —and a whole host of other eats. Just about the time the diuers l were getting a strangle hold on the feed 1 and at a point when “Tom” Jenifer was about to get on the outside of a forkfull , of lucious bivales, and John Perkins was * about to stow away as much slaw as a man could conveniently handle on a hay fork, the strains of martial music floated in at the windows, and Capt. “Jim” Burgoyne and his band of 27 I pieces pulled up in front of the hotel | with a great flourish of trumpets. The Highlanders responded to repeated calls I and were greeted with three rousing . cheers. The band then filed into the room and seated themselves at a vacant | table. After 35 cigars and cigarettes had been set puffing, producing a fog ! like that for which London is noted, ] the “spouting” began and continued until every spouter had spouted his la6t 1 spout. “Tom” Offutt told how happy , he was to know that the rag would hold the place of honor with Old Glory ] at Highland Park ; “Bill” Cole told about sporting a tile which had cost the * other fellow aV; George Hartman kept the tables in a roar with some applicable yarns; Manager Jenifer read the indi vidual averages made by the players; His Grace Dukehart wound up the fes tivities with a number of his inimitable sketches. The affair was engineered by Mr. Harry L. Smith, who prepared the fol lowing toast: Here’s to a human, living thing. Nine hearts that beat as one : Nine worthy lads who grimly fought To a victory well won. Nine mouths that grinned when baseball death Like a biting, stinging frost. Nipped the wings of the enemy—nine souls That groaned when they lost. Each one a plucky, ne’er-say-die— Each one a winger, too; - Each a terror to ail pitchers. No matter what they threw. On bases, all as fleet as deer— In fielding, sure and true ; So to each of these young gentlemen A separate toast is due. The first upon this flaring list. His salary, SBO per. Whose efforts counted for so much— Mr. H. C. Jenifer. And he of Southern dialect Was signed upon first sight, He. who, when runners raced a throw. Yelled, “Div it to mah !”—Hight. The long-hit champion of the club, Arm strong as iron bands. Desirous of a slugger’s Dame, Johnny Spencer, alias “Hans.” A chunky lad of peaceful mind, Snappy work and on the run. We all know why his dad is proud Of Tommy Donaldson. When short-line drives go sailing out We’re frightened very much, A short run in, a diving catch— It’s Ruhl—we call him ’’Dutch.” On one-hand stabs—the classy kind, He makes our hearts lie still; He errs at times, but bet your shirt On “Typewriter” Melville. The one who keeps a level head, Detests baseball humbugs; Knows how to cuss when in hard luck, Lee Reely—sometimes "Mugs.” One actually strikes out at times. Some people think its bluff, For bis batting’s of the classy sort, Benjamin Jones Dashiell Bruff. And lightning throws from deep out field. Flew true as deadly darts, To nail bold runners at the plate, Who’d ’ave thought it—“ Skinny” Parks. You may switch this one where e’re you like' But he’s sure to raise the dust With his stinging swats or daring slides— “ Jack” Grason, nicknamed “Suss." Due credit must be given now To one who has been seen To work in few, but with a will— “Crabapples” “Sammy” Green. A youth, affectionate and sweet. All brothers be will claim us, He’s a slugger, but we love him— Its “Sam” Grason, do you blame us 1 But, alas, a friend has left us. Sorrow trembles on our lips. For a lady changed her signature To that of Mrs. Joseph Phipps. Utilities are often called To bat when shy a run. They farmed him to the second team— H is name is Anderson. * A little, blushing, bashful boy, They called him nicknames from the start: A “Mathewson," “Three-fingered Brown,” “Wunnie,” “Ed,” “Adonis” Hart. - ’Twas his headwork, and his pitching That brought home for us the rag, ’Tis the first, but not the last one. Next year brings another flag. So. here’s to success, may it be everlasting. May the Gods of Luck cast on us never a frown, Here’s to the men who are backing us, urg ing us, Here’s to our colors—the White and the Brown! Those present were—William P. Cole, Thomas W. Offutt, Thomas R. Jenifer, Elmer J. Cook, Z. Howard Isaac, Frank I. Wheeler, T. A. B. Dukehart, George Hartman, William A. Lee, Frank X, Hooper, Dr. J. W. Harrower, Jackson P. Grason, Bamuel A. Green, Samuel C. Grason, Joeeph T. Phipps, John L. Parks, Jr., James M. Anderson, C. G. Hicks, F. B. Donaldson, Thomas C. Bruff, C. Gus Grason, John C. Perkins, P. L. Ruby, Dr. L. Hergenrather, Jr., Richard W. Gardner, Howard C. Price, Dr. W. G. Foster, Dr. Harry 8. Jarrett, Harry L. Smith, Thomas Donaldson, Benjamin J. D. Bruff, Edwart Hart, Lee Reely, John Spencer, H. Courtenay Jenifer and Walter A. Poole. HIGHLANDERS’AVERAGES This is How the Pennant Caine to Fly at Highland Park. The past season for baseball has been of the most interesting character and the followers of the champions of the , Suburban League will be glad to be given an opportunity to read the indi , vidual record made by the Highlanders. Phipps has the highest baiting average, but Bruff is the leading hitter among the regular players. Hight, Jenifer and J. Grason also clouted the pill and helped materially in sending runs over the dish. Spencer, Bruff and Hight made the majority of the long hits, while Jack Grason was easily the base stealer and run-getter of the team. In fielding, the figures of Phipps, Donald son and Manager Jenifer show up well. Hight, Parks, J. Grason and Reely also have good averages in this respect. Taken as a whole, the fielding of the team seems to be slightly stronger than their batting, and, together with the pitching, probably was the secret of the superiority of their play over their , rivals for pennant honors. The team was well managed and well captained, , and the players under perfect discipline, j and these factors contributed in no , small degreetothe success of tbecham pions. Those who stood behind the for ward movement in baseball in Towson this year have every reason to congratu late themselves that their interest did , not pass unappreciated. The records of the players, compiled from the files of . The Towson News, are as follows: FIELDING AVERAGES. Fielding ave.

The football season opened in Towson last Saturday at Highland Park, when the Cherry and White, representing the Towson Athletic Association, and the strong Visalia team of Baltimore, which went through last season without an un broken record of victories, lined up against each other and the hundred or so of spectators on the roped-in side lines held their breath while the 22 huskies hurled themselves like human batteriug-rams against each other. All j, drew deep sighs of relief, which ema nated from the region of their oxfords, when time was called at the end of the second half and every man was on his feet. Towson was compelled to take the short end of the stick—o to 5. When the task is considered, the Cherry and White were let down easy. While to the ordinary visitor not schooled in the niceties of plays and their execution, the hurried signals may sound like Coptic, and the jumbled mass of arms, legs and bodies resemble an upheaval of nature produced by a bunch of street curs, yet there is sufficient excitement to : hold the spectator. Towson kicked off to Visalia’s 15-yard line and the ball was run back five yards. The visitors were held by Towson’s line for two downs, and then made 25 yards i off an on-side kick. They then lost the ball on an attempted forward pass and e it was carried to their 30-yard line by line rushes and end runs, where Towson , lost it on an attempted fake kick. For , about eight minutes the play was mostly k near Visalia’B 35-yard line, first Towson e and then Visalia having possession of . the ball. Finally, on end runs and for ward passes it was carried to Towson’s ten-yard line, when, apparently, the , ball would have been carried over the j goal line in the next minute’s play, but f the calling of time saved the Cherry and White from a touchdown. In the second half Visalia kicked off to Towson’s 15-yard line and the ball was run back 20 yards. For ten minutes play was mostly in this section of the • field, the visitors making repeated gains through the line and around the ends by being penalized 25 yards for an illegal forward pass, the ball touching the ground before being touched by a player. Towson was held for downs, and Visalia forced the ball to Towson’s five-yard line, where, on an attempted kick by Jessop, the kick was blocked by Graf, the ball striking him full in the face and considerably jarrring his turret. How ever, holding on to his thinks, Graf cor ralled the pigskin over against the wire fence in the near of Towson’s goal line for the only score of the game. There was considerable wrangling over the manner in which the play had been made, and after a conference between Captains Deviibiss and Parks and Referee Jenifer Towson magnanimously allowed the point. Visalia tried for a goal, but missed. Towson kicked off to their ten-yard line and the runner was downed in his tracks. Visalia made about 15 yards and were held for downs with the ball on their 25-yard line. By repeated line plunges by Jessop and T. Bruff the leather was pushed to the three-yard line, and it looked mighty good for the score to be tied up, but a big hole somewhere in Towson’s line let i an opposing lineman through three suc cessive times and the ball went over. Visalia then kicked and the ball was j recovered in midfield, when time was called. The lineup: ! Visalias Position Towson W. Limpert ...Center Cole Uriflln, Hibn....Right guard McCabe Darr.

Under perfect weather conditions and with a large aud fashionable attendance the fifth an nual Green Spring Valley hunters’ show was held last Saturday on the grounds of tbe Green Spring Valley Hunt Club. Although the weather was all that could be desired, tbe turf was very slippery and hard and caused the horses a great deal of difficulty in jumping. Mr. Thomas Deford and his crack jumper, Keggy Comer, won the highest honors of the afternoon. He captured four blue ribbons, two red ribbons, three thirds and one fourth. Keggy Comer wod three firsts for him—tbe Corinthian class, the class for ladies’hunters and the hunters’ jumping class. Keggy Comer also captured second place in the jumping class open to all and third place with Floral Dale in the class for pairs of hunters. A close second to Keggy Comer in the matter of honors was Monitor, the 5-year old bay gelding, also owned by Mr. Deford. He took first place in tbe class for green hunters, third place in the hunters’ jumping class and fourth in tbe jumping class open to all. The only disagreeable feature of the show happened in tbe class for ladies’ hunters. The competition was especially keen in this class and, judging from conformation, performance and manners, Aristocrat and Algoma, of the Blenheim Farm, seemed easy winners, for they cleared every jump without touching. But when their rider, Miss Marie Loui6e Cherbon nier was weighed in it was found that owing totbecarelesßless of somebody she was lacking 15 pounds in weight. Therefore the Blenheim entries were disqualified and Mr. Thomas De ford’s Keggy Comer, ridden by Miss Mamie Mordecai, was awarded the blue ribbon. Miss Cherbonnier’s clever work in tbe class for ladies’ hunters was easily the riding feature of the show. First she rode Aristocrat and cleared all six jumps with him without touch ing a single one. This performance she du plicated on Algoma immediately afterward. Her third mount was Black Prince, owned by Mr. George Ward. She cleared the first three jumps with him, but on the fourth he touched. Her record for the afternoon was 15 fences without a touch. The Blenheim Farm scored second honors with one first, two seconds, one third and one fourth. Cook Lived as Eskimos. One of the most remarkable features of Dr- Cook’s journey was the winter he passed on his return from the north on the south coast of Jones Sound. For many months he and his Eskimos kept themselves alive with the bows and arrows and lances they had fashioned, for they had exhausted their ammunition. They lived in a dngout they made on the coast. Not many years ago no Arctic explorer had the re source to pass successfully such an ordeal as ttfis. Peary was the first to call attention to this possibility, as he was tbe first to advocate the application to exploratory enterprise of many of the Eskimo methods of living aDd working. Dr. Cook was fitted by temperament and physique to live on the country when he was stripped of other resources and to come through it well and hearty. He was made of the stuff that has fitted him pre-eminently for pioneering under the roughest conditions,— Frm “The North Pole at East,” by Cyrus C. Adams, in the American Review of Reviews for October. Literary Society Organized. The Franklin Literary Society of Frank lin High School, Reisterstown, Mr. H. H.
