Almost a century after his death, Samuel Clemens, aka Mark Twain, remains one of our leading literary figures, still read not only by virtually every American student but by devoted fans all over the world. If, for example, you can read Japanese, surf to the Web site of the Japan Mark Twain Society, where you will learn about the recent hot topic among Twainians: Ken Burns' four-hour film biography, broadcast in January on PBS. What Burns convincingly did for the Civil War, he has now done for Twain.

For the third time in eight months, the same disease has rocked the Orioles.Joel Stephens, an Orioles farmhand, has colon cancer and is receiving round-the-clock chemotherapy from doctors at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Though Stephens, 21, declined to comment on his prognosis, doctors said the case is more serious than that of outfielder Eric Davis or former Orioles slugger Boog Powell, both of whom had colon cancer surgery at Hopkins last summer and anticipate full recoveries.Stephens, an outfielder and the club's ninth pick in the 1995 draft, underwent surgery twice within the past month in his native Elmira, N.Y., before being whisked to Baltimore by helicopter Dec. 8. His oncologist at Hopkins, Dr. Ross C. Donehower, said that Stephens' cancer is contained in the abdomen and is best treated with drugs at this time.

Some great minds have tried to deliver a reliable way to travel through time. But where H.G. Wells and Mr. Peabody - the brainy cartoon canine who invented the Wayback Machine - failed to bring their ideas to reality, you can succeed by stepping into your kitchen. Retro refrigerators, stoves, ovens, televisions and faucets are creeping into well-outfitted homes faster than cableless neighbors craving TV Land reruns. People who study consumer motivation - you know, appliance manufacturers, market forecasters and grad students scrambling to justify their sociology theses - spout several theories on our need for nostalgia: We think things were built better in the good old days.

At Elmira Seibert's house, reminders of the annual Howard County Fair are everywhere. Rooms are decorated with entries from five decades of fairs, including stuffed animals, quilts and paintings. Cabinets are filled with patterns and recipes she might use in the future. A dozen family members are always scurrying about, working on possible submissions. Seibert is believed to be the only person to have participated in -- and won a blue ribbon at -- each of the county's 53 fairs.
