A Story of How Members of a
G. A. R. Post Hot In The Wrong
Funeral Procession.
It never rains but that it pours,
somewhere, is the apology 1 come be
fore the Clarion readers with, for
this letter follows so closely upon the
one in last week’s issue that 1 hear
some declaring “the ink is hardly
dry on his last letter,” hut just pos
sess your reason in patience, and Ij
will explain all to your laughable sat- j
But first, what about the rain? |
Ask the people along the bottoms of
the Ohio river from Marietta to Cm- |
einnatti. What a story of honors •
and distress they could tell you. It j
rained practically over all southern
Ohio every day last week, and floods
prevailed along all our rivers, hut tin*
climax was reached when on Thur-i
--day evening it began raining hard i
and kept it up until midnight Satur- j
day. If you could stand on a spur |
of the Alleghanics near Pittsburg and 1
sec the Allegheny and Munoiigahela j
rivers, yon would pee sights (nine;
on over to Zanesville and see the;
Muskingdom, then trave l to Port-'-j
month and see tic Seipto an 1 Ohio, j
the latter being receiver for all the i
above rivers, and you see sights that |
make stout hearts ache. All lowland
flooded and the inhabitants living in ,
second-story rooms or fleeing with j
their stock to adjacent hill-. The;
Joss amounts to thousands of dollars, |
to say nothing of the suffering and ;
inconveniences experienced.
But it was not the rain that 1 start - 1
ed to write altout. I have a good,
true story for myoMtl. A. R. friends 1
that they must hear, and of course!
all other readers of the Clarion can
join in the glad refrain and laugh.
Only three old comrades are barred
from joining in the glad refrain, ami i
in difference to their early piety when
members of old Co. I), (sth Md., they
are excused, viz., Ex-postmaster I.
Henry Cover, Mayor Win. .1. Freeze,
of Thurmont, and ('apt. Ed. Heffner
of Washington, I). C. And now for
the story.
On January 2nd, Comrade Simon
Vanfelt of John M. Bell post, resid
ing five miles south of Washington
C. H., Ohio, died. Post Command
er Riley Jacobs called a special Post
meeting, and said, “Comrades, one
of our Post members, Comrade Van
felt has passed to the great beyond.
His funeral will lie held at his home
on Saturday H.flOa. in. As it is win
ter ami we are all ageing, I will not
ask the Post to go to his home to at
tend the funeral, hut will detail an
escort of 12 Comrades to join them
selves to the funeral procession as it
passes through town, and they will
go as an escort to the cemetery one
mile east of town.”
The detail was made and the Com
rades decided to meet and remain at
Memorial Hall until the procession
came along. Memorial Hall is a2d
fl .or room on Court street over which
the funeral procession was to come,
undertaker Albert McCory being in
Undertaker Elmer Klever also had
a funeral the same day and hour and
it was also to come down Court street
and go to the same cemetery.
The detail waiting for the Vanfelt
funeral up in Memorial Hall would
frequently go to the front window
and look west t" sec if the McCory
funeral was coming. At last one of
the Isiys said, “why, the funeral is
passing now,” and hurrying, six of
them who had on their overcoats left
the Hall and half a block ahead lined
up three on each side of the hearse.
The driver of the hearse looked around
and said “Imjvf, are’nt you mistak
en?” Comrade Basic pertly replied,
“I guess we know our business.”
The driver said not another word.
Now, the funeral Mr. Klever had
was that of a colored woman. Mr.
Klever with the colored parson was
ghead in his buggy. The parson
! looked hack and said, “Mr. Klehlter,
i what order is that marching along
side of the hearse?” Mr. Klever re
plied, “none I reckon.” “Seems to
he some kind of an order there,” in
sisted the parson.
1 The procession moved alniig, reach
ed the cemetery and when the hearse
stopped near the open grave, the es
cort marched up, lined up in open
j order, took off their hats, held them
in just the (i. A. R. regulation style
across the left breast. Just then
j Superintendent (Sossard of the cem
etery came first piloting the pall
boa rsers to the grave. He took in the
situation at once, and said, 4 hoys,
are’nt yon mistaken, this is a colored
woman they are burying.” Then
such hiking around monuments out
| to the sidewalk and back toward town
as those six big fellows did.
When about half way to town they
met the Vanfelt funeral, and tin- rest
of the detail marching along in good
order. They said, “fall in hoys, and
go along hack.” Bnsic said, you
go to—

The members of the School of Hor

to do a large amount of extension
work in all counties i f the state this

| It is particularly desired that till

1 Therefore, everyone who is interested
in a young orchard should communi

and secure aid in seeing that Ids or
her orchard is properly pruned this

1 rehabilitating old apple orchards
through pruning and spraying, mak

On Saturday evening last our people
were given a treat by the company which
gave the delightful comedy-drama en
titled “Dad’s Girl” in the Town Hall.
This company is the second to come to
Thurmont this winter and give a credit

very satisfactory to the man 'gers, and
in all probability other companies of sim
ilar character will visit us during the
winter season.
Bull Moose Advertising Not Paid.
Ever since the election we have been
trying to collect a bill from Jas. R. Bald
win of Baltimore, treasurer of the Pro
gressive Party, for Bull Moose Campaign
Advertising. The bill yet remains un-,
paid, and we learn ours is not the only
one. The following article is taken from
the Taneytown Carrol Record of last
Many of our county papers accepted
“Bull Moose” advertising during the past
campaign. It was offered to the Record,
but was dccli ned. Now it appears, from
the following clipping from last week’s
Chesterlown Enterprise, that there must
be something wrong with the “bank.”
Was all the cash assigned to Maryland
concentrated in Baltimore to produce
that big city vote? The Enterprise says:
“Is the Bull Moose party in Maryland
financially bankrupt? This, at least, is
the natural and fair inference in view of
the fact that advertising accounts incur
red during the presidential campaign, ac- 1
ceepted in good faith by the county press
upon the order of the national commit
teeman, the ostensible head of the party
in the state, remain unpaid. And, furth- j
ermore, all statements and requests for
payment are utterly ignored, without the
usual business courtesy of a reply to com
munications, indicating that not only is
the party embarrassed financially but
that its affairs are in the hands of incom
petent and unreliable managers.” I

A dog possessed of all the symptoms,
actions and looks of being mad, was

of this week. The dog was near Bound

Week Jan. 20th, the greatest dramatic i
novelty of the decade; American com
pany. Harris and Selwyn will present'
What may be termed without exagger
ation an exceptional theatrical novelty
wdl he presented at Ford’s the week be
ginning Monday, Jan. 20, when Messrs.
Harris and Selwyn will offer “The Yel
; low Jacket.” The piece comes direct
from its engagement at the Fulton Tbea-1
tre, New Y’ork, where the critics no less
than the public acclaimed it the most un-1
usual play ever seen upon the stage. :
“The Yellow Jacket” is an adaptation
, of a Chinese play by Geo. Hazelton and t
Harry Benrimo, presented in the exact
manner used by the Chinese players
themselves. The scene represents the
stage of the old Jackson Street Theatre
in San Francisco, a place familiar for
many years to the residents or visitors
to the City by the Golden Gate.
The story of “The Yellow Jacket” has !
to do with court life in China. It begins |
with the infancy of the hero, when his
father at the behest of a favorite wife |
seeks to have the child put out of the
way. It is written of the Fates that this
boy shall become one of the great men :
of the Empire and achieve the greatest,
distinction known in China, the badge of
the Yellow Jacket. This story is told in |
eighty-seven scenes, divided into three ;
sections. In order to make the action '
and intent of the players clear a chorus,
after the fashion of the old Greek drama, 1
tells what is passing on the stage.
The company which Messrs Harris and j
Selwyn sends here is the same seen in i
New York. The costuming is most elab- I
orate and exact in every detail.

[Tilt: (T.AIUON desires it to be distinct
ly understood that it is not responsible
for the views and opinions expressed in
letters appearing under this head. J
George R. Apsley, pastor of the Sev
enth Day Adventist church in this town,
has just received word from the General
Conference, the headquarters of the de
nomination, in Washington, D. C., that
$12,500 has been given through the re
cent special donation for the building of
homes for missionaries in China. The
Sabbath School Department, which sent
out a call for the donation, had hoped to
collect enough to construct nine homes
for the workers in the new Republic of
Asia, and not only will those be built,
but three additional ones.
This money was given In voluntary
contributions by members of the Sabbath
Schools throughout the denomination in
the United States and Canada on a par
ticular day set apart for that occasion,
and the sum has been forwarded to China
j where the homes will be put under way
the early pert of the new year.
The '1 l.urmont Sabbath School, not
i withstanding the fact that it has a mern
j hership of only 15, contributed $6.62 to
wards the fund. In speaking of the giv
-1 ing of free-will offerings for the further
ance of the gospel in foreign lands, Elder
Geo. R. Apsley said that he was also
1 n itified from headquurteis that it the
i contributions from the Sabbath Schools
I alone for the last quarter of last year
1 measure up to the contributions for each
of the first three quarters, the total
amount will exceed $200,000. All of this
money will go towards the spreading of
the gospel in other countries. The ap
propriations for gospel endeavor in foreign
lands during 1913, he said, have reached
I over a half-million dollars.
It was also said that the denomination
has a force of 550 missionaries in foreign
lands and 974 native helpers. It has a
! force of 00 workers in China, and these
' are teaching Christianity in ten provinces.
It has a total of about 1200 adherents,
192 being added last year.
The next special offering through the
Sabbath Schools was taken on December
28. The money donated will be used for
the needs of the training schools for mis
' sionary workers at Camarero, Argentina
: and at Pua, Chile. The leaders hope to
raise SIO,OOO. and all over this amount
| will be devoted to the general missionary
work of the South America Union Con
, ferenco among the Spanish and Indian
' missions.
i The Adventists are endeavoring to
spread the gospel throughout South
America as well as every other country
jon the globe in this generation, as they
believe that Christ will return to the
* earth after the heralding of his return
has been carried to every nation, kindred
and tongue.
