Toiler and storekeeper, Juet quitting work;
Shoppers and casual®, huddled they wait.
Showing their tickets to get through the gate
Crowding and crushing for seats at the start,’
Dreams in the noddle and hopes in the heart -
All aboard, life, in the sun or the rain
<ioin’ down home on the 5:30 train!
Newspapers open and heads buried in them
Magazines open—new stories, begin them
Neighbors exchanging the day’s views of news,
Some talking history, some talking muse,
Some merely chatting, and gossip a wing—
Prize lights and horse races, any old thing-
Brokers on stock deals, the loss and the gain—

And Baltimore Highlands— get ready to hop*
Pumphrey and Linthicum, Shipley, and then

Saunders and Marley, Elvaton—Ah, me,
It will soon be the Severn that flows to the sea.
And the dear bluffs and meadows, the capes in a chain—
Doin’ down home on the 5:30 train!
Old people, young people, middle-aged, sad;
Ligbthearts and free hearts and true hearts and glad-
Dignified gentlemen, specs on their nose
Old fashioned ladies in odd furbelows;
Up to date maidens with quite jazzy styles,
Lovely school misses with innocent smiles;’
All the day’s people, the humble, the vain— %

one morning when his grandfather
drove up in his car. Howard wanted
very much to go along, but his mother

Howard studied a moment and then
replied, “Well, if I was a grandpa and

Every Day Of This kind Of Weather 1
Means A Slap At The Pres- t
peetive Coal Strike
“It is an ill wind that blows no- !
body good.” says legendary lore in 1
the old adage. ]
While the coal miners are preparing ,
*o lay down their picks and shovels
on strike, leaving the public to shiver
ill it pleases. Old Sol and his various 1
tempering agencies are lined up on '
the side of the public, saving for them ]
hutisands of tons of coal for thd prob- j
ably fuelless days to come.
Yesterday the sun, hidden under a ’
blanket of hazy clouds, sent the tem- (
perature scooting up to 73. and. there
fore, saved just another day's supply !
of coal for all persons who burn i't!
f or heating purposes. The same con- 1
servation plan occurred today as
orotnlsed by Alfred Thiessen. the Bal-j 1
timore Weather Bureau director.
“Every day of this kind of weather.” j
said Mr. Thiessen yesterday, “means
i slap at the prospective coal strike.
It means just one day's supply of coal j
<aved. and that is quite an item. May-'
'e the folks are complaining about!
he warmth, and the uncertainty of i
'emperatnre, but if they realized how j
much coal is being saved, they would j
make no kicks.”
And so it is, that an ill-wind, if a
Southwestern can be called such, is;
..one that brings no 111-luck,'even R it
loes bring banks of threatening
olouds and no promise of relief from
he httmidity. If the coal miners’
drike is coming, nothing could help
give it a setback any more than a
warm November. It it rains today,
and is so warm and sticky that swear
ng comes without provocation, just
remember the promised strike and
. the cold winter days ahead, and then
. smile.
7 Late yesterday afternoon news was
received here of the death of Robert
R. Butler, half brother of the late
William M. Abbott, of this city, and
who years ago was a member of the
* State Legislature.
The deceased was a native of Tal
bot county, where his remains were
’ taken for burial at the old home place
1 “White Marsh Farm,” Abbott’s Mills,
! the funeral taking place this after
Mr. Butler was in his 86th year,
but up to last Friday he enjoyed fair
ly good health for a very old man,
and was up and about, reading his
daily papers and keeping abreast of
the times. In his last letter to his
niece in this city he wrote “I am 86
vears young, and feel that the Lord
has blest me to tarry here so long.”
He was the last of the Abbott
brothers. His mother was Maria
Kenly Reese, who married a widower,
R. R. Butler. Her second husband
was Samuel White Abbott. The de
ceased grew up on the old Abbott
farm which he later bought, together
with two other valuable farms in Tal
bot county, near Trappe.
His wife failing in health some
vears ago he sought treatment for
her in Baltimore and has since been
living at the home of his wife’s niece,
Mrs. Butts, at Govans, near Baltimore,
where his death occurred at 1.15 yes
terday morning.
The remains were taken to Easton.
Md., for burial this afternoon.
The deceased was for some years
County Commissioner of Talbot coun
ty, and was a familiar figure at the
court house in Easton for many years.
He was a most successful farmer.
He is survived by a widow, Mrs.
Fannie Leonard Butler. There were
no children.

Instructions to this effect have been \
given the Bureau of Military Affairs
by Secretary of War Baker. In this \
connection Mr. Baker said:
“The limit of the number that can J

that they may be combined, so far as j

Practical experiments to determine
the possibility of the utilization of j
tidal power to make good for- the coal
shortage under which France is ex
r icted to suffer for a long time will
he carried out under Government aus
pices in St. Briac Bay, on the north
coast of Brittany The committee
appointed for the scientific investiga
tion and study of hydro-electric pow
er will undertake the experimentation
by Government orders.
Experiments are also being con
ducted to determine the possibility of
replacing coal wholly or in part on
the railways, in gas, water and power
plants and for domestic purposes.
The Petit Parisien states that the use
of gasoline in the chief gas, water and
power plants of the public service is
contemplated and that the measure
may make possible a daily saving of
4000 tons of coal for domestic uses.
! It would require 60.000 tons of gaso
line a month, possibly imported from
the United States.
Pending an adaptation of the plants
ito gasoline power, coal moistened
with naptha may be used in the public
| service plants this winter. The neces
; sary installations are expected to be
. ready by January. The coal is not to
be used primarily as fuel, but as a
|holding element for the naptha, which
! otherwise could not be burned in the
present fire boxes.
There will be no temporary inter
ruption of the continuity of racing at
Prince Georges Park. Bowie, under
the auspices of the Southern Mary
land Agricultural Association, as was
feared last spring when the court
of last record in the Old Line state
declared unconstitutional the act un
der which racing had been conducted
in Prince Gporges county since 1914.
General Manager James F. O'Hara of
the Bowie race track set a staff of
lawyers at work on the old Maryland
statutes relating to racing as soon as
;the adverse decision of the court was
handed down, and it was discovered
that under an ‘act of 1592 racing may
be conducted at Prince Georges Park
under precisely the same conditions
as obtained under the invalid act.
So Mr. O'Hara and Clerk of the
Course Joseph McLennan, who is act
ing as one of the placing judges at
Laurel Park, have gone ahead with
preparations for the usual fall meet
ing. And Supt. Richard Pending is
busy fixing up his stables for the ac
commodation of the most consider
able colony of thoroughbreds that ever
have assembled at the Southern Mary
land track.

The American fleet of 24 vessels
which has been visiting Lisbon left
the Tague Sunday with the home
ward bound pennant flying, as the
fleet will touch only at the Azores
and Bermudas en route.
Numerous festivities enlivened the
stay of the fleet at Lisbon and Por
tugal. One of the functions was a
dinner and garden party at the Amer
ican legation. Minister Birch also
took a party comprising the naval at
taches at Madrid and Lisbon and the
commanders of the vessels in the fleet
on a coaching trip about the suburbs.
The jackies enjoyed themselves in
sightseeing—(their first holiday in IS
months, they said. The balmy airs of
that more southerly clime appealed
greatly to them, as one of the men
said, after the North Sea, “where we
helped to lay the first mines and
swept up the last.”

JT ricks And Traditions Associated
With It—Quaint Cantom* That
Adhere To Love Sentiment
Just now you might say that the :
world is much concerned with very j
real thing.-., yet at just s* ch a time
the tnystical things have a certain con
trasting fascination, and Hallowe'en
is essentially mystical, especially in its
origins. If you ( !• it.
Night or Snapapple Night it doesn't
sound mystical at all. Nevertheless,
it is a fairy night.
There was a tradition that < hildren
born on October 31 would preserve
through rtieir youth the power to talk
with the elves and air spirits. Long
since the supernatural features of the
day gave way to odditios of celebra
tion. You see a survival of the mystic j
In the ghostly excavated pumpkin with
its candle light within designed to
look very awesome in the night. Ap
pies and nuts also play a lively part.
Apples hung by strings are to be bit
ten into, or they are floated in sha!
low dishes and "ducked” for. It was
once the custom for a girl to throw
two hazel nuts into a tire secretly
thinking of two lovers' names. It is
the hazel nut that burns steadily with
out bursting that indicates the trust
worthy lover. Unfortunately, both will
sometimes burn steadily.
The apple trick most familiar to
day is that of paring an apple with
out a break, and of then 'throwing
peeling over the left shoulder. The
scrawl of the skin on the floor will
surely spell the initial of the right
person's name.
Hallowe’en has a great history. Oc
■ tober 31 is the eve of All Saints’ or
Hallow's Day. On November 1 the
; Romans used to have a feat to Po
mona. the goddess of fruits and seeds,
. and something of honor to fruits is
. a common feature of Hallowe’en.
I Many strange Druid customs have
crept into the observance of the (lay.
f Thanksgiving for harvest was a fea
-1 ture of the Druid festival, and bonfires
I were conspicuous. Who knows but
. that those who have argued for ad
j vancing the date of Thanksgiving Day
I may not yet hit upon Hallowe’en as a
r compromise?
: However, the mysteries of Ilallow
( e’en rather persistently adhere to the
love sentiment despite the emphasis
placed on simple fun. There seems to
- be at least 50 established devices for
truly discovering the precise identity
i of your future husband. Learning
• about your future wife appears to
i have been less securely to formula,
although there are not less precise
methods of learning this equally im
portant fact. The ring in the cake,
for example, prophesying marriage
within a year, evidently belongs def
initely to Hallowe’en formulas.
All festivals, when they lose either
a religious or a fantastic significance.
