AUGUST STH, John Barrymore in “THE MAN FROM MEXICO.” John Barrymore is presented in his second motion picture appearance in the celebrated comedy, “The Man From Mexico,” by H. A. Du Souchet. John Barrymore’s first film characterization was the title role of the noted comedy, “An American Citizen,” a Famous Play ers production that created a sensation throughout the country. As in his form er portrayal in “The Man From Mexico,” John Barrymore finds himself in continu ous trouble, from which he consistently extricates himself in a highly humorous manner. It is in this type of play that John Barrymore excels. With this excruciat ingly humorous facial expressions, his ludicrous gestures and his general meth od of portraying farcical tribulations and sorrows, he finds himself admirably suit ed in a character such as that of Fitzhew in “The Man From Mexico.” WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 9TH, Theodore Roberts in “THE CIRCUS MAN.” Undoubtedly one of the widest read novels, “The Rose of the Ring,” by Geo.

Back in the year 1887 the question of organizing a fire company in (then Me chanicstown) Thurmont was agitated by the citizens of the town, and finally on June 28th of that year articles of incor poration were granted Guardian Hose Company, Dr. M. E. Leatherman, pres ident; James C. Mackley, vice president; Charles E. Cassell, secretary; SamT M. Birely, treasurer; John F. D. Miller, foreman; Frank Stokes, chief hose direct or; H. Clay Anders, chief pipeman. The organization flourished. A com pany was formed and under the direction of Mr. Frank Stokes men were drilled to perfection. Uniforms were purchased, and many laurels won in competitive drills in various cities. This continued for a number of years. Interest began to decrease because of the absence of a leader and drill master, and finally there was no organization of fireman in Thur mont. Officers were elected annually if suffici ent citizens of the town attended the meeting when a call was made, and thro’ the untiring efforts of Messrs. E. L. Root and SamT Bennett, and perhaps a few others, Guardian Hose Company still exists. Of the original incorporators three are living, viz: Messrs. Mackley, Stokes and Anders. The charter was granted for a term of 40 years. The company has from time to time purchased fire fighting apparatus, and with the equipment on hand has done good work at recent fires. Since 1887 Thurmont has spread over a much larger area, and if a call was made for hose at some outlying point, the run to be made from Town Hull would be more than men could do. How about purchasing a light auto truck for a hose truck? If not for a hose truck, to use same to pull hose reels and hook and ladder truck. Think about it. On Monday evening of next week there will be a Firemen’s meeting in Firemen’s Room in Town Hall. The object of this meeting is unknown to us at this time, but likely it is something interesting to every taxpayer, and every taxpayer ex pecting protection should attend. Impressions of the First Week of the Summer School for Rural Ministers. ißy Dr. T. F. Dixon, of Frederick.) About half of our school work is over and we take a moment to gather up the impressions that have been made. First of all is the impression of the oneness of our job. We are from all sorts of churches, but we are all facing the same problems and the school makes us realize this as we possibly never have before. Here we have felt no difference because of creed, but have been a unit in the work before us. A next impression is of the great value of the College of Agriculture to the peo ple of the State. There seems to be somebody at the college who knows any thing that the farmer can possibly want or need to know and we are wondering why more farmers do not send in their problems for solution. Still another impression is of the great importance of the Country Parish in the sum total of the work and success of the Church at large There are more churches in the country than in the city. The bone and sinew of the city church is born and raised in the country church, the vast majority of the recruits for the ranks of the ministry come from the Country Church. We are also impressed with the great opportunity and real responsibility of the Country Church to be the leader in all forms of community betterment. The church and the school are usually the only social centers in a country neigh borhood. They must set the pace for advancement or none will be attained, and by setting it unitedly they can much more easily and completely attain their own specific ends. The particularly strong impression of the Ministerial School at the Agricultural College is the vital connection between physical and social conditions in the coun try and the success of the Church in the country. Better farms, better houses, better schools, better roads are as im portant to the work of the church as better Sunday Schools and better ser mons. In all these the minister ought to be the leader or at least the inspirer. At our school we are learning what we ought to be to the community and how to be it. The School is pre-eminently a school of methods, it has given us inspiration, it has given us principles, but best of all, it has given us practical programs that can be carried out in our actual work, and which we believe will be used to the great betterment of the Country Church.

Liberty Statue Injured An unknown number of dead and injur ed, $25,000,000 in property loss, five States shaken, and millions of persona within a radius of 100 miles badly frigh tened to distraction, is the partial toll of the damage wrought by an explosion of war materials in New York Bay early Sunday morning, July 30th. While only two persons are known definitely to be dead, the loss of life is believed to have been considerable, and scores of persons were injured. Black Tom Island, an area of reclaim ed land, which projects into the bay from the Jersey shore, immediately be hind the Statue of Liberty, was the scene of the explosion. Six Lehigh Valley railroad piers and the National Storage Warehouse com prising 24 3 story, brick buildings, about 100 feet deep, bore the brunt of the ex plosion. Thirteen storage warehouses and their entire contents were blown up, 85 loaded freight cars were burned, a dozen barges and their contents burned or blown up, and probably three tug boats sunk. The New Jersey Central Railroad pier, half a mile from the source of the ex plosion, also was damaged. The detonations, which were felt in five states, began with a continuous rapid fire of small shells, then the blow ing up of great quantities of dynamite, trinitrotoluene and other high explosives, followed by the bursting of thousands of shrapnel shell, which literally showered the surrounding country and waters for many miles around. Fire that started soon after the first great crash, which spread death and des olation in its wake, destroyed 13 of the nuge warehouses of the National Storage Company on Black Tom Island, in which were stored merchandise valued between $12,1 00,000 and $15,000,000. The flames, | shooting into the clouds, were reflected ' against New York’s sky line of towering 1 office buildings, which only a few mo- j ments before were shaken to their foun dations as if by an earthquake. Miles of streets in Manhattan alone were strewn with broken glass and shattered signs. Great havoc was wrought on Bedloe’s Island by the explosion at Black Tom Island. Damage to the Statue of Liberty has been estimated at several hundred thousand dollars. The figures are the guess of Captain Clifton, in charge of Liberty Island. The exact injury can not be ascertained until experts have made a careful examination of the ped estal and base of the statue. Bedloe’s Island, almost on a direct line with Black Tom, bore the brunt of the shock. A warehouse recently com pleted there is practically in ruins. The first thought of the officers and men who comprise the little army post was for “Miss Liberty”; though an ava lanche of dirt and pieces of flying shrap nel a detail of three men with a non commissioned officer ran to the statue after the first blast. They found it bad ly damaged. The light on the statue was found to have been completely flick ering when the successive blasts rattled the monument to its foundation. It has not yet been definitely deter mined just what the money loss will be. Some 40,000 tons of raw sugar, valued at approximately $3,400,000, is known to be lost. It is believed that the other contents of the warehouses destroyed will greatly increase this amount. There were no explosives stored in the ware houses. Two of the cars destroyed were loaded with shrapnel, which would not have been a source of danger but for out side fire. The other cars destroyed were loaded principally with salt and pork. Loys Letter. Mr. SamT Ramsburg spent Wednesday with friends at Mt. Airy. Mr. I. Engle of Frederick, spent a few days with Mr. and Mrs. Washington Pit tenger of this place. Mr. and Mrs. H. T. Martin and children spent a few days of last week with his brother, Mr. Wm. Martin of this place. Mrs. George Pittenger and son Harvey spent Sunday with her daughter, Mrs. C. R. Moser of LeGore Valley, Delightful Picnic. The picnic held by the United Breth ren Sunday School in Eylers Grove Sat urday last proved to be a delightful af fair. While no great big crowd of people were present, yet those who were there seemed to have a very good time. Elder Welty Fahrney of Frederick, Rev. Ship ley of Buckeystown, and Rev. Harner of Thurmont, made very interesting ad dresses in behalf of the Temperance cause. The festival held in the evening was very largely attended. Power Plant Sold. On Saturday last the Martinsburg Power Company property was sold to interests allied with the Hagerstown & Frederick Railway Company, the purchase price being $585,000. The Martinsburg Company does a general light and power business, but in dry seasons, the Potomac river did not furnish water sufficient to operate the two power plants. In the future current will be furnished the Mar tinsburg lines from Security during dry seasons. Liver Trouble. “I am bothered with liver trouble about twice a year,” writes Joe Ding man, Webster City, lowa. "I have pains in mv side and back and an awful soreness in my stomach. I heard of Chamberlain’s Tablets and tried them. By the time I had used half a bottle of them I was feeling fine and had no signs of pain.” Obtainable everywhere. Advert 1m aunt. I. 0. 0. F. Reunion.
