WILSON AND MARSHALL Democratic Nominees for Pres ident and Vice-President. Woodrow Wilson of New Jersey, was nominated for the Presidency by the Baltimore Democratic Convention Tues day afternoon. When the result of the forty-sixth bal lot was announced, Senator-elect Ollie James, of Kentucky, permanent chair man of the convention, waved his hand to the vast assembly for order and said: “The vote on this ballot shows 990 for Wilson, 84 for Clark and 12 for Harmon. I therefore declare Woodrow Wilson, of New Jersey, the nominee of this conven tion.” The sound of his voice had hardly died away when 18,000 persons burst into wild applause. Relieved of the tension that had bound them for more than a week the delegates -Wilson men, Clark men, Underwood and Harmon men —joined in a demonstra tion of joy and good will that swept old rivalries and animosities into the things of the past. At 1.46 o’clock Wednesday morning, Governor Marshall, of Indiana, was nom inated by acclamation for Vice-President on the democratic ticket. The following is a brief history of the man nominated for President by the Democratic party: He was born in Staunton, Vu., Decem ber 28, 1856, his father being the Rev. ; Joseph R Wilson, a Presbyterian minis- I ter. When 18 years old he entered Da vidson College, North Carolina, but one year later matriculated at Princeton, graduating in 187jh The next two years were spent at the University of Virginia, studying law. He w n the Thomas Jefferson medal for ora tory. Two years at Atlanta, Ga., prac ticing law, satisfied him with the busi ness, and he turned again to the study of law and government at Johns Hop kins. He was drafted as one of the original faculty of Bryn Mawr College. In 1902 he was elected president of Princeton, the first layman to fill that post. Eight years ago and four years ago he was mentioned as Presidential timber. A little less than two years ago he was nominated for Governor of New Jersey and elected. He was responsible for the defeat of James Smith, a democratic “boss” when he desired election to the United States Senate. Created public service commis sion. Extended primary election laws. He was also instrumental in having ma ny other beneficial laws passed. Harvest Week. During this week farmers in this vicin ity are busy harvesting. The weather has been such that neither man nor beast suffer from the heat, but a much higher temperature is predicted for the latter part of the week. The wheat crop is good and the hay crop very large. The Little Bronze Hutton. (By Gustave Younghans) How dear to the heart of each gray headed soldier Are the thoughts of the days when we still wore the blue, While mem’ry recalls every trial and danger And scenes of the past are brought back to his view. Tho long since discarding our arms and equipments, A veteran most surely will note The first thing he sees on the form of : his comrade, The little bronze button he wears on his coat. “How much did it cost?” said a man to a soldier, “That little flat button you wear on your coat?” “Ten cents in good money,” he answered ; the stranger, “And four years of fighting and march ing to boot. The wealth of this world can not pur- 1 chase this emblem Except that the buyer once wore the i brave blue, And it shows to mankind the full marks of a hero, A man who to honor and country was true.” Then let us be proud of the little bronze button And wear it with spirit both loyal and | bold, Fraternally welcome each one who sup ports it, With love in our hearts for comrades of old. Each day musters out whole battalions of wearers, And soon will be missed the token so j dear. But millions to come will remember with honor The men who’d the right that bronze button to wear. The little brown button, The sacred bronze button, The Grand Army button He wears on his coat. Personal. Mrs. Emma Zimmerman, of Vander grift, Pa., visited friends in this place the past week. Miss Jessie Rouzer, of Lancaster, Pa., visited her parents during the past week. Miss Mary B. Whitmore of Baltimore, and her mother, Mrs. Anna Whitmore of Emmitsburg, visited Mrs. D. C. Ham mett on Snnday last. Mr. Charles Weller, a son of the late Geo. Weller, is visiting his grandfather, Mr. Chas. A. Weller, of this place. Mr. Weller has been employed in a Brazilian city. South America, for the past several years and in all probability will return to that country.

Frederick county’s tax rate for the year of 1912 will be 88$ cents on the hun dred dollars. This was determined upon by the Board of County Commissioners, at a meeting Friday morning when the rate was fixed. The state rate is 23J cents, making the total levy $1,112- This county rate will be levied against pro perty of all descriptions, amounting to $30,225,746, the basis for the levy. Last year the basis was $29,125,445. The several items going to make up the basis this year follows: Real estate, $22,989,962. Personal, $5,443,386. Judgments, $390,297. These have been scaled according to the tax paid on prom isory notes. There are about $1,000,000 of taxable judgments in force in this county. State Tax Commissioners stocks, sl,- 711,101. Home and foreign stocks, 15c; $867,197. Stocks, 30c; $1,003,738. This year the property making up the State basis represents a value of $29,- 205,674. The county rate this year is one-half j cent higher than last year. The County Commissioners say that while the basis was increased over a million dollars this year, yet there were a number of expend itures made this year, which were not needed last year. Ths basis this year is estimated to produce $286,966.21. Last year the income was a trifle over $275,000. This year there were cuts in some ex penses, but the schools demanded $16,000 more than last year, $4,000 was set aside for painting bridges and another $2,000 for metal furniture for the County Com missioners’ office and clerk’s office. Elec i ion expenses this year were also heavy, due to the cost of preparing the new registration books. The county will this year pay for SIB,OOO worth of bonds. The commissioners point to the fact that if it were not for the money produced by judgments and mortgages the tax rate would have to be about four cents higher. They also say the condition of the office of the County Commissioners was a dis grace, and that some sort of improve ment was needed, hence the spending of money for metal cases and a fireproof room. The clerk’s office will also receive metal cases. Additional bonds were float ed, making an increased sinking fund and interest. Of the money produced by the levy, the schools will receive about $106,000 and the roads and bridges of the county about $65,000, these being the biggest items for which provision must be made. The amounts needed for running the county, as estimated, and for which pro visions were made in the levy follow: Pensions $ 4482 20 Constables 2095 99 Magistrates 462 48 Witnesses 1722 27 Vaccinations 234 00 Coffins and graves 248 00 Inquisitions 316 00 Printing 1956 66 Clerk Circuit Court 2574 70 Deputy Sheriff 90 00 Taxes in Error 1310 66 State’s Attorney 2961 47 Attorneys fees 415 00 Contingent fund 8519 64 Ruud and bridge fund 18,747 84 Iron bridges and repairs 19,947 60 Sheriff’s salaries and accounts. 7659 90 | New Public Roads 1000 00 I Health officer 500 00 I Miscellaneous 5048 85 County Surveyor 300 00 Judges of Orphans’ Court 2200 00 Court stenographer 800 00 Maryland Hospital for Insane. 200 00 Springfield State Hospital 1500 00 Mt.
