Fire At Graeehiiiu. Early last Friday morning a fire broke out in the residence of Mr. Chester Joy at Graceham, and for a time it was thot that the eastern portion of the village Woqld be destroyed. The fire is suppos ed to have been started by a stovepipe becoming overheated, articles in the room occupied by Mrs. Joy catching fire. Mrs. Joy has been ill for some time and was carried to the home of a neighbor. Those persons who assisted in subduing the fire fought it in a dense smoke, all windows being kept closed on account of a strong 1 wind. The furniture in the room was badly damaged. Best Cough Medicine for Children. “Three years ago when I was living in Pittsburgh one of my children had a hard cold and coughed dreadfully. Upon the advice of a druggist 1 purchased a bottle of Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy and it benefited him at once. I find it the best cough medicine for children because it is pleasant to take. They do not object to taking it,” writes Mrs. Lafayette Tuck, Homer City, Pa. This remedy contains no opium or other narcotic, and may be giycn 1 1 a child as confidently as to an adult. Sold by all dealers. Advert iiwment. Greatest Comedy in The World. As has been remarked, the history of a successful play is usually quite as in teresting as the play itself. The story of how, when and where it was written, and the experience the author had before it was produced, are frequently filled with those elements of romance and adventure that make fiction stories popular. With this thought in mind I asked Mr. Craven to tell me the story of “Too Many Cooks” and discovered it was one of those lucky accidents in play writing that are practically plotless. Mr. Craven has had the idea for his little comedy in mind for ten years. He was always going to write the story of the house that should start from its foundation and finish with its completion, but didn’t do it. Did not even try to write it until a year ago, when he was playing Jimmy Gilley in “Bought and Paid For” in Chicago. Then he wrote the first act in a single night. At 10 o’clock in the morning he was called to the phone and told he was to pack his things immediately and start fpr Londop. “Bought and Pajd For” was to be produced over there, and Mr. Broadhurst was particularly anxious that Craven should play his original part. At the close of the London run he started the second act, which he finished in an other day or two. On the steamer that brought him home Wm. A. Brady was a fellow passenger. During one of their conversations the manager remarked that he wished he had a light comedy with which to open the Playhouse. “I’ve got the lightest comedy ever written,” promptly replied Craven. “Let’s see it,” answered Brady. “I'll let you see two acts of it. The third isn’t written.” Brady accepted “Too Many Cooks” on the first two acts. FORD’S THEATRE, One Week, No vember 16th. Adv. Stock Disease Spreads. Six Comities In Maryland Now Under Quarantine. Foot and Mouth Disease Infests Eleven States. During the past week the dread Foot and Mouth disease among cattle spread to various parts of the United States, the reports of last week indicating that only a few of the Middle Western States were affected. The latter part of last week the disease made its appearance in Maryland—Frederick, Washington and Allegany counties being affected. Governor Goldsborough at once quar antined all cattle in these counties, and it has been ruled that dogs come under the quarantine law. The following article appeared in the Baltimore Sun Monday of this week: To Farmers and Stockmen. “If any of your cattle, hogs or she-p begin to limp, stop eating or fall off in flesh notify the State Veterinarian, Dr. Lawrence Hickman, Baltimore. It is apt to be the foot and mouth disease. Delay is dangerous to you and to your neighbor. The foot and mouth disease is contagious and highly infectious and should be taken hand at once by State experts.” “Carroll, Howard and Montgomery counlies will bo placed under quarantine today by proclamation of Goldsborough, and the shipment of all cattle, sheep or bogs to or from these counties will be forbidden because of the further spread >£ the foot and mouth disease. This makes six quarantine counties in Maryland Frederick, Washington and Allegany were isolated Friday and State Veterinarian Hickman yesterday found mother farm in Frederick county, just icross the line from Carroll, near Em .nitsburg, on which 24 steers, 2 dairy cows and 4(1 hugs were affected. He al so got report of two more farms in tie same county which were probably affect ed. Secretary of Agriculture Houston will .dd Rhode Island to the 10 States already under national quarantine. He also is sued an urgent appeal to the State gov ernments, the farmers and dealers for energetic co-operation and drastic action in stamping out the epidemic. “The Government proclamation states that the only adequate remedy is to kill all infected herds and bury the carcasses in quicklime; establish absolute quaran tine, even being careful about human beings carrying the contagion; that where such action is delayed in trying to cure one animal the whole herd may be lost; that the animals affected are not worth i the saving, as they are rendered useless for food or breeding by the disease. “All the farmers whose stock is killed on account of the disease are reimbursed j and the State and Federal Governments share the cost of quarantine and disinfec tion. All the farms, the stockyards and even the stock cars of the railroads are being disinfected and all shipments from infected areas are being traced down. “As soon as the epidemic is localized by these means interstate shipment will be permitted again and trading between all but the localized quarantine territor ies resumed. “The chief difficulty in the fight is the ignorance of the farmers or cattlemen concerning the disease, according to Dr. Hickman. Every cow or hog or sheep seen limping is open to suspicion and should be examined by an expert as soon as he can be procured, is Dr. Hickman’s opinion. “ ‘The symptoms are easy to see,” he said. “When any animal with a cloven hoof begins to limp, the farmer should not hesitate in the belief that it is sore simply from walking or just an accidental injury. My oflice should be notified or an expert on live stock diseases called to ; inspect the animal. “When any of the live stock gets off its feed or losses flesh or the saliva be gins to flow freely, it is safest to have it examined immediately. Delay may mean loss of the whole herd. “The disease shows itself in the cleft of the hoof and sometimes on the out side of the mouth, although most fre quently first on the upper gums. But any sick animal ought to be isolated at once and examined. ’’ The farm near Emmitsburg referred to above is that of the late Meade Fuss. One of Mr. Fuss’ sons recently purchas ed a lot of steers from Patterson Bros., intending to fatten them. These cattle it is said came from near Lancaster, Pa. The digging of a trench in which the cattle will be placed when killed was be gan Monday afternoon, and likely the cattle were killed Wednesday. For the cattle, hogs, etc., Mrs. Fuss will receive $1,950 from the State and National Gov ernment. It is reported that Mr. Walter Dorsey, a cattle dealer of neat Loys, had shipped from Virginia three carloads of stock cattle. These cattle are now held in quarantine at Hagerstown. Persons who saw the cattle affected on the Fuss farm say that blisters can be seen on the hoofs of the cattle and that saliva in great quantities run from their mouth. The hogs are affected in the same manner. The present out break first appeared in southern Michigan. How it wag in troduced there is not known. Shipments of diseased hogs from this place which passed to Chicago are believed to be re sponsible for the infection of the pens in the Union Stockyards. One the yards became infected there was danger that every shipment of live stock through Chicago to other parts of the country might pick up the germs of the disease and spread t[ie contagion. Tfiese ship ments, composed largely of feeders and stockers, were sent to farms for fatten ing and did not remain in Chicago long enough for the disease to show itself in external symptoms. A large force of Federal inspectors are now running down every shipment and examining the ani mals or herds at their place of delivery. . Celebrate 50th Anniversary ’ Happy Couple Receive Con gratulations From a Host f of Friends. On Tuesday evening Inst Mr. and Mrs. Simon A. Lohr of this place celebrated the 50th anniversary of their marriage at the home of their son, Mr. William Lohr, near town. The beautiful new home of Mr. and ’ Mrs. William Lohr was decorated with golden wreaths and golden colored chrys j anthemums and presented a very lovely appearance. Soon after seven o’clock guests began to arrive. They were met at the door by Mr. Emory Stottlemyer and ushered to the cloak rooms. After wraps had been disposed of guests came down stairs where they met Mrs. Dr. Beall and Mrs. William Lohr, daughter and daughter in law of Mr. and Mrs. Simon Lohr, the former standing to the right and the lat ter to the left of the entrance to the par lor. Master Calvin Lohr then ushered the guests into the parlor and presented each to his aged grandparents. Music for the evening was furnished by Prof. Stevens and his son and daugh ter, of Frederick. They furnished both vocal and instrumental music, the same being much appreciated by the one hun dred and fifty or more persons present. Refreshments consisting of most de licious cream, cake, fruit, coffee and punch were served. Mr. and Mrs. Lohr received many val uable and handsome presents from their | host of friends. At a late hour the guests began bid ding their host and hostess goodnight. [communicated. ] The spacious home of Mr. and Mrs. William Lohr of this place was the scene of a most happy and auspicsous occasion m Tuesday evening, Nov. 10th. It was he celebration of the golden wedding of: dr. and Mrs. Simon A Lohr. Friends j imi relatives from Thurmont, Ermnits- j uurg, Liberty, Waynesboro, Hagerstown md other places were present to wish the happy couple a continuance of long life and prosperity. Mrs. Wm. Lohr and Mrs. Dr. Beall re ceived the gues.s as they entered, and 5 Mr. and Mrs. Lohr accepted all congrat ulations and good wishes with genial smiles. One could hardly believe on see ing them hale and hearty that so many years had passed over their heads, old Father Time having dealt very gently with them. After greetings were ex changed the guests, about two hundred in number, listened to the music furnish by Prof. Stevens, son and daughter, of I Frederick, and passed a pleasant hour in | social intercourse. A summons to the diningroom disclosed a well spread table and all present enjoyed the dainty re freshments served with ease and skill. | Mr. and Mrs. Lohr received many use ful and handsome presents, this showing j the esteem in which they are held by their many friends. So pleasantly was the time passed that the hour for departure passed unnoticed and the guests lingered loath to depart. The good wishes of their friends will follow Mr. and Mrs. Lohr as long as they remain with them and they will no doubt radiate the same golden beams of kind ness, goodwill and unselfish friendship to all who come in contact with them, thus exemplifying the axiom that it is possi ble to grow old gracefully. "My Auto Tis of Thee.’’ My auto, ’tis of thee, short cut to poverty -of thee I chant. 1 blew a pile of dough on you two years ago, and now you quite refuse to go, or won’t or can’t. Through town and countryside you were my joy and pride; a happy day. 1 loved thy gaudy hue, thy nice while tires so new, but now you're down and out for true, in every way. To thee, old rattle box, came many bumps and knocks, for thee I grieve. Badly thy top is torn, frayed are thy seats and worn; the whooping cough effects thy horn. 1 do believe. Thy perfume swells the breeze ' while goods folks choke and wheeze, as | we pass by. I paid for thee a price, ’twould buy a mansion twice, now every- ! body’s yelling “ice” I wonder why? j Thy motor has the grippe, thy spark plug has the pip and woe is thine. I too have j suffered chills, ague and kindred ills, en- , deavoring to pay my bills since thou wert mine. Gone is my bank roll now. No | more, 'twould choke the cow, as once i before. Yet if I had the mon, so help me John—amen, f’d buy myself a car; again, and speed some more. Exchange, | Hunting Season Opens. Owing to the passage of a State law ; at the last session of the Legislature, j the season for hunting did not open un- i til Tuesday of this week. Early in the morning gunners got busy in this vicini ty and for a time reports of guns here and there were heard in quick succession. Firing became less frequent in a short time indicating that game was getting scarce or hard to locate. Of course ev ery shot fired did not mean a rabbit or bird killed. We speak from experience. House Robbed. On Friday evening last while Mr Chas. Brenaman and family of this place were enjoying their supper in Town Hall, some person or persons made a rade on their home on Altamont avenue. En trance was gained through an unlocked door. It is stated that only SB.OO in cash was taken. A trunk was broken open and articles thrown about the room. Improving Street. Walnut street, this place, is receiving the attention of tfie Boarcl of Commis sioners at this time. Hundreds of loads of stone have been hauled on the street and broken. The street is much used as it runs from E. Main street to Etzler’s Mill along the W. M. railroad. There will be no more dragging heavy loads through soft ground. Accident At School Building Friction Band Failed To Hold- Bucket Falls. An accident, the first to occur at the High School building, happened early Tuesday morning. The work of putting down the concrete floor above the basement story was com menced Monday. In order to get the concrete to its destination a 50-foot tower has been erected. A large iron bucket especially for the purpose is hoisted on the inside of this tower to a height of about 45 feet where the contents is dump ed into a large funnel from which it is directed in a large trough to any part of the floor. Tuesday morning when a bucket of concrete was being hoisted one of the workmen having occasion to go to the top of the tower got on the bucket. When near the place the bucket is dumped, Mr. Hbke who was attending the engine, threw off the gas and applied the friction brake to give the man a chance to get out of the tower. A bolt holding the brake broke and in an in stant the bucket and man was coming down the tower at a rapid speed. Before they reached the ground the emergency brake was thrown on. The sudden stop caused by this brake tore the heavy wire hoisting cable and also tore a piece from the Bxß leg of the tower where the lower pulley wheel was attached. The man in the bucket fortunately came down the proper way, otherwise his head would have struck the side of | the lower and he would have been killed. I All hands were terribly frightened but no one was injured. The breaking of the cable and brake caused considerable delay and extra personal work. Donation Days. Thursdays in November are Donation Days at the Frederick City Hospital, i School children especially are asked to I contribute one egg or one potato. Grown folks may give just what they please. All donations will be thankfully received at the Hospital on those days. The Hoard of Managers gratefully remember the generous responses of last year, and hope for a return this year. This is in [ lieu of the usual Thanksgiving offering. Public Sale. On Saturday, Nov. 21st, at 12 o’clock, Henry Stambaugh will sell household I goods at his residence in Thurmont. Despondency Due to Indigestion. I It is not at all surprising that persons 1 who have indigestion become discouraged ! and despondent. Here are a few words | of hope and cheer for them by Mrs. i Blanche Bowers, Indiana, l‘a. “For j years my digestion was so poor that I could only eat the lightest foods. I tried every thing that 1 heard of to get relief, but not until about a year ago when 1 saw Chamberlain’s Tablets advertise ment and got a bottle of them, did 1 find the right treatment. 1 soon began to improve, and since taking a few bottles of them my digestion is fine.” f'or sale I by all dealers.
