VINCENT SEIM)LI) Attorney-at-Law. Attorney for Phurmont National Hank At Thurmont Every Thursday. Offices Sebold B’i.d’o, Emmitsbuig, Md. and with Judge Mutter, Court St., Frederick, Md. Phone, Emmitsburg 17-3 Annapolis, Md., Oct. 19. —Saying that the death of Cadet William R. Bowlus, of Middletown, Md., as a result of a haz ing escipade at St. John’s College on May 26, was an act of murder, Judge James R. Brashears, in delivering the charge to the grand jury at the opening of the Anne Arundel County Circuit Court this morning, urged that the tra gedy be probed. The five cadets of the freshmen class who are held for the death of Bolus, and were released on habeas corpus proceed ings under $1,500 security, were in the courtroom and heard the Judge’s charge. Judge Brashears reminded the jurors that it is for them to frame the degree upon which any presentment should be based. “The question of provocation is not to be considered,” the Judge told the jur ors, “but it is a matter for the jury to determine whether the act was commit ted in self-defense.” Judge Brashears reminded the jurors that each of the live cadets has denied knowing which fired the shot. “If they continue to assume this stand,” he said, “there is nothing for you to Jo but. present them on the charge ef murder.” Bowlus was a member of the junior class. A party of juniors had engaged in hazing the freshmen prior to the fatal alfray, although the victim was not a party to any of the pranks. The fresh men barricaded themselves in a room and it is alleged the shot was fired through the door as the juniors attempt ed to force an entrance. Bowlus was struck, the bullet penetrating his abdo men. He died at Emergency Hospital wo days later. In addition to the fresh men, five juniors are held as State’s Moravian Chimb Rev.

Week October 26th. —William Elliott’s Metropolitan success, “KITTY Mac KAY,” an irresistibly merry play by Catherine Chisholm Cushing. An entire season at the Comedy Theatre. All lovers of the real romantic comedy will delight in the merry play, “Kitty Mac Kay,” which is announced at Ford’s week October 26th. The play is artistic, intensely interest ing, and delightfully dramatic; in fact, the best yet evolved from the pen of Catherine Cu-ihing Chisholm. Although Kitty herself is Scotch, with the Scotch wit and cleverness, her rise ftom poverty to wealth with the attend ing tribulations, is done in an English at mosphere. She has a winsomeness and charm that is most appealing, and the three acts of the play are so filled with action and laughter that there is not a dull moment in the entire entertainment. The company that is to appear here is one of unusual excellence headed by Irene Haisman, Reginald Denny, Eliza beth Morton, Bertha Kent, John P. Clan cy, Margaret Calvert, Jack McGaw and C others. The production has been made with Mr. Elliott’s well known thoroughness and is the same seen during the Metro politan run. In describing this witty play, Alan Dale, the well known New York drama tic reviewer, said: “Don’t let ‘Kitty MacKay’ escape you. Break all your Tango engagements and go. You will have a bully time of it and ‘Kitty’ and ‘Mag’ will keep your good humor at the top notch. No grouch could live in the atmosphere of ‘Kitty MacKay’.” Matinees Wednesday and Saturday.

The question is, what would you do right now if you had a severe cold? Could you do better than to take Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy? It is highly cecommended by people who have used it for years and know its value. Mrs. O. E. Sargent, Peru, Ind., says, “Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy is worth its weight in gold and I take pleasure in recommending it.” For sale by al dealers. Advert iiwme nt, To Probe Bowlus' Death. Middletown (Md.) Youth Was Killed By Shot Fired From Room In Which Were Freshmen. Of Interest To Milk Shippers “The Hoard of Health of the District if Columbia has maintained a clatn-like silence in regard to their future action concerning the shipment of milk from Frederick county farmers whose herds have not been given the test for tuber culosis. Nearly two weeks ago forty farmers of Frederick county filed a pe tition with the Hoard of Health stating that they would not have their herds tested unless they were paid the full value of cattle tested out. “No reply has been received from the Hoard of Health, norhas the board taken any action relative to the stopping of milk shipments from Frederick county. Win. H. Renn, of Adamstown, who was instrumental in sending the petition to the board says that the farmers of the county would in course of time volunta rily discontinue their shipments of milk to Washington, and that in a few days he and other farmers in that section will begin to ship milk to Baltimore. “Arrangements have been made by nearly all the farmers in that section to begin the shipment of milk to Baltimore in the event that the Board of Health of the District of Columbia sends out an or der that shipment of milk from untested herds must stop. Montgomery county farmers have been making similar plans during the past week. “It is believed that the Health De partment will soon give a reply to the farmers.” —Post. Surprise Party A surprise party was given at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Brown at Foxville, Saturday evening, Oct. 17th, in honor of their daughters, Misses Cora and Alta Brown, of Hagerstown, who spent Saturday and Sunday with their parents. About nine o’clock games were started and along with them there was plenty of music. About eleven-thirty refreshments were served consisting of ice cream, cakes of all kinds, candies, lemonade and fruits. Everybody seemed to enjoy the even ing thoroughly, and about twelve-thirty o’clock left for their respective homes. Those present were; Mr. and Mrs. Cal vin Brown; Misses Cora, Alta, Ethel and Virgie Brown, Edna Kendall, Mary and Lottie Prior, Hazel and Audrea Wolf, Nellie Fox, and Grace Brandenburg; Messrs Welty Brown, Lester, Vernon and Corsey Kendall, Paul Beard, Lloyd Scnsenbaugh, George Wolf, Rae Bran denburg, Edgar Kuhn, Calvin Pryor, Russell Delawter, Wilbur Fox and Paul Buhrrnan. Married. Clifford H. Brown of Sabillasville and Rena M. Moore of Cascade, were mar ried on Sunday afternoon at St. Johns Lutheran parsonage by the Rev. M. L. Beard. Big Improvement On visiting the Frederick County Fair grounds visitors cannot help but notice the improvement made since last fall. The new entrance for pedestrians and carriages presents a beautiful appear ance. The relocation of the cattle stalls is also a decided improvement. Provid ing the weather proves favorable Fred erick should have a record breaking crowd. Why Not Publish It? When you want a fact to become gen erally known, the right way is to publish it. Mrs. Joseph Kalians, Peru, Ind., was troubled with belching, sour stom ach and frequent headaches. She writes, “I feel it my duty to tell others what Chamberlain’s Tablets have done for me. They have helped my digestion and regu lated my bowels. Since using them I have been entirely well.” For sale by all dealers. Atlvt-rtiaeweut. Thurmont High School. Excellent Progress Being Made on New Building Designed by B. Evard Kcpner, Architect. Rooms —Where Located and Their Purpose. With the rise of the brick walla from the excavations, the new school building begins to take more form in the eyes of the onlooker. From the height of the basement win dows it can be seen that the building will set high and that the basement rooms will thereby be well lighted and free from dampness. There are four large rooms in the base ment-perhaps not for immediate use, but which have been provided for —to contain, front on the left, the Sewing and Dining Room of the Domestic Sci ence department. Rear, left, is the Kit chen, which completes the Domestic Sci ence department. Right front is the Chemical and Agronomical laboratory. Right rear is the Manual Training de partment. That portion of the basement excava ted two feet deeper takes care of the 5 large furnaces, air reservoirs, heating chambers and heat ducts. Fuel will also be stored in this portion. In the front projection will be the toilet rooms; on the left the girls’ rooms, and on the right the boys’ rooms. The four class rooms will be floored over the concrete, with an excellent ma ple floor on wood screeds. The grade entrances on east and west sides enter through a vestibule upon a slate platform from which steps of same material lead to both basement and first floor, The front entrance leads to a short hall which meets the cross hall in the center of the building. Entering the building via the front en '.ranee, on the left is the Library, a room of ample size for its purpose. Corres pondingly, on the right, is the Teachers' (looms, containing lockers and shelving for books, etc. On either side of the hall and adjacent to these rooms, are two cloakrooms of sufficient hanging space for two classes of pupils each. Five class rooms, 24x30 feet, are ar ranged for on this floor two in front and three to the rear—all lighted from two sides except the center room in the rear which, however, is well lighted. A large cloakroom for two classes is also provided between two of the rear rooms. On the second floor are four class rooms 24x30 feet, two front and two in the rear. Cloakrooms three in number are provided on this floor. The Principal’s office is located above the second floor on the left, over the stair, and gives the necessary privacy to the room. The feature of this building is the ' Auditorium, which is located on this floor. Extending over the rear class room and hall and minor rooms of the first floor, this Auditorium covers a floor space thirty-one feet wide and sixty feet long, with an area of 1860 square feet, and a seating capacity varying from 350 , to 450 according to arrangement of seats. A stage ten by eighteen feet and ante rooms or dressing rooms, complete the assignment of rooms. This room is not designed for heavy plays requiring large stage facilities, but for lecture and public speaking purposes principally. The ceiling is nearly twenty feet high in this room and will be finish- | ed white. The graceful steel trusses carrying the concrete roof over this por tion, will form part of the ornament of the room, and be painted a glossy black. 1 By keeping the ceiling of this room high, the architect was enabled to ar range his windows along the side of the room where it projects above the main roof on each side, and by so doing gives the room not only an abundance of well admitted light, but also affords the best possible means of ventilation in a room of this kind. Two drinking fountains are located on each floor of the building, and are of the bubbling type. The windows throughout the building above the basement are extra large, be ing four by eight feet, and are hung with Austral hardware, which permits of best ventilation and light that can be secured. Each room contains seven windows of 30 square feet of glass surface each, giv ing to the room a light area of 210 square feet. The floor area is 720 sq. ft. per room, hence the peecentage of fight to floor is about 30 per cent. The specifi cations of modern schools call for only 15 per cent, light, so it can be seen how sufficient the light will be. Blackboards 48 inches high will be in stalled on two sides of every room, with unique chalk receivers and dust boxes. The chalk ledge is of wood sunken in the center with a wire cover of a mesh small er than pieces of chalk could fall through, but permits of the passage of the chalk dust. Small plugs in the bottom of this ledge, when removed, permit of the dust being brushed through into a bucket or pan held beneath openings. When completed the building will pro vide accommodations for between 300 and 400 pupils, with an ultimate capacity of between 500 and 600, in such an event 14 class rooms being used and yet leav ing the Auditorium in its present size. The increased enrollment in Thurmont this year has been anticipated in the new building and when the many more come in next year they will find the new building arpply large for all to receive their education in comfort and without the least crowding. The brick vent flues and heat stacks and inner walls on the east end of the building are about up to floor level, and work of setting the basement windows has begun. While the job got away to a poor start, work has progressed with amazing rapid ity and to date at least 60,000 brick have been laid. With good weather much should be accomplished by the end of the month. w. P. s. Fire At Rocky Ridge. Stock of General Merchandise Consumed With Building. On Monday night of thia week the general merchandise store of E. C. Wood at Rocky Ridge, this county, was de stroyed by fire. The fire was discovered about 10 o’clock, and by those first on the scene, was ob served to be making rapid progress on the inside of the building. The building in which the store was conducted was a two-story frame build ing, having been erected some years ago by Mr. J. Allen Beitler, of Rocky Ridge. The lower floor has been used for store purposes and the second as a pool room. Everything being very dry and com bustible, the fire soon ate up the build ing and contents. It is estimated that the loss on the building and stock is about $2,500; insurance covering part of this amount. Thia is the second store to be destroyed by fire at Rocky Ridge, the store and stock of goods owned by Black & Co. of that place having been burned several years ago. Merchant Hangs Himself. J. Frank Baker, a merchant of Union Bridge, committed suicide Sunday night by hanging. His body was found sus pended in the stairway of a rear room at his store this morning. He was 57 years old and had been en gaged for years in business in Union Bridge. He was suffering with a cancer ous affection of the lip and had arranged to have it cut out on Monday. It is be lieved that, thinking about the operation, he lost his nerve, and in a moment of desperation took his life. As he enrolled as a voter at the recent registration, he is not thought to have contemplated sui cide at that time. He is survived by his widow, one daughter, and three sons.
