Hidden in the heart of Glen Burnie is a manor house with a sweeping porch that looks straight out of a Ralph Lauren ad. All that's missing is the group of debutantes sipping lemonade and chatting over scones.With its freshly painted shutters, white pillars and gabled roof, the 150-year-old house appears to be the perfect setting for the fashion designer's fox-hunter crowd. Except that it's tucked in a middle-class neighborhood between Crain and Ritchie highways, two of the area's busiest roads.

"I think it was a good auction. I didn't lose too much," Baltimore broadcasting executive J. Duncan Smith said yesterday, smiling after an elegant, 170-year-old waterfront estate he had purchased as a weekend home was sold at JTC auction for $1.85 million.Several dozen spectators outnumbered the handful of bidders at the auction, held beside a 25-meter indoor swimming pool in the 19-room country house in Annapolis. The estate, known as Toad Hall, occupies seven acres on a peninsula between the South River and Chesapeake Bay.Bidding opened at $800,000, and the offers increased initially in increments of $100,000, then $50,000 and, finally, $25,000.

It would be a nice reaction to the recent hoopla over possible high-tech disaster if some people developed a new appreciation for low-tech alternatives -- such as swapping e-mail for old-fashioned, courteous, personal, hand-written letters and cards. Bethesda Engravers/Dempsey & Carroll, a Baltimore firm that's been in business, in various forms, for 120 years, still reliably offers all kinds of stationery -- from formal invitations and business cards to more casual note-cards. Some feature garden motifs, creatures such as running foxes, frogs and ladybugs, or nautical or sports designs.

Denise Koch is hosting one of her quarterly "Get to Know" shows tonight, a half hour with profiles of three Baltimoreans. It is this show's usual mix of interesting subjects portrayed in a too-soft focus.On tap tonight at 11:30 on Channel 13 (WJZ) are interviews with dancer and teacher Sylvester Campbell, Realtor Mary Bell Grempler and lawyer/politician Billy Murphy.Campbell, who was spectacular on the stage with the Maryland Ballet and now teaches at the city's High School for the Arts, comes across as an interesting, articulate man, but the profile is skimpy with the facts.

The delegates voted 4-3 to cut taxpayer funding next year but said the campaign can continue with special funds, private sector money or volunteers."These are tough times," said Del. Martha S.

Historic preservationists in Howard County have a great deal to offer prospective homebuyers: a large 100-year-old Victorian house with all the trimmings, free for the taking. There's only one catch. If you want the three-story house, you'll have to take it with you. Located at the junction of Routes 108 and 32 in Clarksville, the house is slated for demolition in the coming months to make room for an Amoco gas station. In one of the most striking episodes of Howard County's rapid development push, preservationists are desperately trying to find someone with the money and land needed to spirit the house to safety in time.
