It's a week before Christmas, close to suppertime, and dark already outside the window of the train. Across the aisle from me sits a young woman with a shopping bag so large she could carry a 3-year-old child in it. The logo on the bag says it all: She's been to the American Girl store in New York; she's carrying home a fully outfitted doll that probably cost more than the round-trip ticket on Amtrak.

The Baltimore maker of Mary Sue Easter eggs and of gourmet chocolate, Chesapeake Candy Inc., will be sold at auction next month as a way to pay off debt and keep the struggling company going. The public auction of Chesapeake Candy, which runs Mary Sue Candies Inc. and Naron Candy Co., was approved Tuesday by Baltimore Circuit Court. The candy maker filed Aug. 31 for state court insolvency, which is similar to a Chapter 7 bankruptcy in federal court. The company has struggled since a 1996 merger between Mary Sue and Naron left it burdened with debt - now at $1.2 million - and unable to turn a profit, Mark Berman, president of the combined companies, said yesterday.

RUNNING Ruxton Chocolates has its perks. One of them is definitely not climbing onto an overhang about 25 feet off the ground, navigating patches of ice and weak spots in the metal structure, to inflate a 32-foot pink bunny-rabbit balloon so that thousands of motorists on Interstate 83 will remember to buy Mary Sue Easter Eggs. "It's scary," said Bill Buppert, Ruxton's president. "I am not a big fan of heights." Buppert seems to be afraid of little else, even though he is just 26 and nearly four years out of college.
