In an unusual strategic disposal, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. said yesterday that it would sell its McLane Co. division to Berkshire Hathaway Inc. in a $1.45 billion deal that puts Berkshire in position to become the dominant player in the food-distribution industry. For Wal-Mart, selling a piece of itself is a rare event; one company executive could not recall it happening before. For Berkshire Hathaway, the purchase seems especially well-timed, with many of McLane's competitors such as Fleming Cos. of Lewisville, Texas, and U.S. Foodservice of Columbia, Md., either foundering or under investigation.

Robert M. McLane guided Baltimore through the Great Fire of 1904 and led a bold rebuilding effort. The 36-year-old blue-blood mayor found time, too, to sneak off and secretly marry a socialite hailed as one of the city's most beautiful women. Then on May 30, less than four months after the flames were doused, he shared a laugh with his bride at their West Preston Street home, walked into his dressing room and, according to a coroner, shot himself in the head with a .32-caliber Smith & Wesson revolver.

In the shadows of the glitzy towers sprouting up around Baltimore's Inner Harbor, a shipwreck peeks from the murky shallows. It is a relic of a bloody but little-known chapter of Maryland history: the Oyster Wars of the Chesapeake Bay. The gunship Governor McLane played a heroic role in sinking pirate ships and rescuing hostages in violent clashes between police and oystermen during the 1880s. But today it lies almost forgotten beside a rotting pier along Key Highway, its iron hull streaked with rust, its hold full of water, its planks rotting and grass growing from its stern deck.

And like the ice cream man, the snowball stand has become a fixture in the community. "I have customers who come every day," said Kyle Marriott, owner of Ky Ky's Hawaiian Ice in Dorsey's Search.
