Wednesday, September 10th, 8.30 P. M. WALLACE REID THE DUB.” Mr. Reid appears as John Craig, the owner of a little construction company, whose work is held up because he cannot extend his credit. Being short ot actual cash he goes to a park nearby to think about his problem. There Burley Hadden, a shrewd attorney, comes, and from a chance act of Craig’s, he decides that the young man is a dub, a coward. So he decides to employ Craig for a delicate mission, not because he wants him to succeed, but rather, because he wants him to fail. The mission is to go to a p'ace in the . ountry where George Markham, a crooked broker, has secreted a valuable document. Hadden doesn’t want the paper but he has to make a show of attempting to obtain it. Craig sets out and at Markham’s place proves that he is anything but a coward. He encounters tremendous diffi culties in gett ng the paper, but comes back after Markham’s servants have thrown him off the place and burglariously enters the house at the risk of his life. There he finds a girl, the heir ess to a large fortune, held prisoner, and the way in which he rescues the girl, gets the paper he went after and also secures evidence of the girl’s fortune, makes a decidedly interesting screen narrative. Wallace Reid has never done better acting than in the role of “The Dub.” A one reel cartoon comedy and a single reel Bray Pictograph will * complete a most pleasing two 'fv Jjjrcjjs hours entertainment. >' in x jk%M2A nirtm t vm iit——mu—i—mn— Subscribe For The Clarion.

Much Hay, Grain And Other Articles Consumed. Two fires occurred near Jimt iwn, two miles south of Thurmont Wednesday j forenoon about p'cfen o’clock. The fir-tf, blaze occurred at “Sugar . Camp” farm, for many years owned by I he late Uriah Wi*renf<*ls. and some twelve years ago pas iug into the pos- I session of Mr I.emoel flowers. At the time the fir#* broke out thresh ( ing was progressing nicely, several hun dred bushels of grain being i i the bins at I the north side of the b >rn Mr, Calvin Bowers. brother of Lemuel, ! was assisting with tie* threshing and was h dping to get the sheaves to the ma chine. He noticed, a#*#) w < the first to see, smoke issuing op along !h woather boarding and the wheat in the southwest corner of the barn. The alarm was giv*n and an effort made to extinguish the blaze, but it was soon found that the barn was doomed. Attention of the tneh was turned to the machinery and live stock and most of it I was gotten to places of safety. Several ' hogs and some machinery was burned. I * The barn was a very substantial frame ) structure 48x80 feet, and contained the seasons crop of hay and grain, Mr. Bow ers estimating the grain near 600 bushels i and the hay at 60 tons. All the straw , was consumed. To the north of the barn stood the wagon shed, two buggy sheds and hen ! houses, and to the east the hogpens. I These buildings were all consumed. For a time the dwelling house and sum | merhouse were threatrned—nearly all the furniture being removed to the field adjoining. Men stationed on the roof of each of these evidently saved them from destruction. Mr. Bowers estimated his less $6,000, there being insurance covering probably one-fourth of this amount. Isanogle Barn Burns. Soon aft#*r the fire in the Bowers barn had burned through the roof, pieces of shingles were carried by th<* heavy wind i almost half a mile to the property of Mr. James Isanogle situated on the road lead ing from Jimtown to Lewistown. ; One of the • rubers lit on or about the | stable and the structure was soon amass l of flames. The building was a frame structure and contained feed and straw. The corncrib and hog pen nearby were * Public Sale.

The dwelling house was threatened, but was not damaged, the wind blowing the blaze away from it. The loss here probably will be S6OO. It was not learned if these buildings were insured. Large crowds of w iling helpers were attracted to the two fires, but every thing being exceedingly dry and a strong wind blowing little could be done to save any portion of the building in which the fire qriginuted. Fire At Leys. Buildings And Feed Consumed By Flames. On Monday evening of this week about nine o’clock, a bright light to the east of Thurmont gave notice that something in the distance was burning. It was soon learned that the frame barn on the property of Mr. Sum’l A. Long near Loys was on lire. The fire was caused by an old hen fly ing against a lantern. Mr. Long was catching chickens for shipment Tuesday morning. A numbtf of the chickens were roosting in a mow in the barn, and the lantern was left on the ground floor while Long went to the mow. One of the h|iis flew down and struck the lan tern, upset it, and an explosion followed the lire and oil falling in the feeding en try to the horse stable. The blaze spread rapidly and in a few minutes had spread over theentirebuild ing. x Neighbors soon arrived on the scene and assisted Mr. Long in getting the machinery and implements from the barn and adjoining buildings to places of safety and also succeeded in saving the buggy shed and corn crib not more than 20 feet from the barn. Mr. Long had threshed and had his wl eat hauled to market, there being a few bushels of rye and oats in the barn. About twenty 2-horse loads of hay was burned The silo adjoining the barn was also destroyed. The loss is estimated at several thou sand d> liars. Some insurance wan carried on the building. The fire attracted hundreds of people many coming a long distance in automo biles. Concert. The Thurmont Orchestra will give a Concert in the auditorium at the State Sanatorium on the night of Sept. 16. Married. Mr. William A. Frushour of Thurmont and Miss Goldie Linthicum Troxell of Creagerstown, were united in marriage by Rev. P. E. Heimer, August 29th, at the parsonage in Thurmont. Band Serenade. Without warning of what was doing, the Emmitshurg Band arrived in Thur mont Monday afternoon and began play ing at the Square Corner. The Band had filled an engagement at Waynesboro and was returning home and stopped here for a short time. The music was beautiful and was appreciated by the crowd which gathered in a short time. Triple Tone Electric Bell. Three seprarte and distinct sounds are given by an electric bell which operates an ordinary lighting current by means of a transformer. In the home the hell can he connected with push buttons installed at three dif ferent doors —front, kitchen and side for example. When one button is pressed a clear ring results, when the second is operated a buzz is produced, and when the third button is pushed a combined buzz and ring results. In the office or shop this bell will prove most useful since it can he used to call three different persons without necessitating them to count the num ber of rings as must often be done when the customary signaling is em ployed. This hell has no contact points to burn out, no batteries to replace. Children Cry FOR FLETCHER S CASTO R I A CENSOR HELPED DEFEAT GERMANY Performed Great Service in Guarding Allies’ Interests , During War. THWART MANY FOE SCHEMES British Official Expunged “Lord of Hosts” From Lloyd George’s Speech as Kaiser’s “Aid de Camp” —Smuggling Prevented. Thv British postal censor Is soon go ing (he way of the telegraph and cable censorship— out. .lodging from criti cisms In America, such us that of the Merchants’ association to the postmas ter general, the going of this war in stitution will be just as joyously wel comed abroad as in England. Hut whatever Ha* petulance of those who think war restrictions have held over too long, the postal censor, In the opin ion of those who have watched his work from the viewpoint of British and allied security throughout the war, has been of the greatest service In defeating Germany. The nearness of the date of the de mist' of this Institution has called forth (• msiderable information about Its work. Thus far. however, there has been no amusing side such as was shown during the obsequies for the cable censorship. .lust after Mr. Lloyd George succeed ed Lord Kitchener sis secretary for wap It is related that be provided the ammunition for the censor to give (he paragrapbers a lease on war life. Mr. Lloyd George went to Brarnshott to bid good by to a Canadian division about to cross the channel. After the Inspection lie made a speech from his motorcar, concluding with a quo tation from the Bible: “And may the Lord of Hosts be with yon.” Corre spondents who sent their dispatches first to the censor were surprised to find the final words of the secretary running in this fashion: “And may be with you.” It was amusing, but also serious, in the minds of the news writers, so they protested. However, they got their re ply from the censor’s department; “Tlia .kuiser, having claimed the Lord as his aid-de-camp, no reference must be made to the Divinity In this connec tion." Enemy Schemes Thwarted. As I said, the postal censorship has ns yet turned up no morsel of rela tive choiceness. The postal censor ship, however, has thwarted many en emy schemes that make just ns In teresting or more interesting read ing. Furthermore, the British postal censorship was a much farther reach ing organization than was attempted In America, simply because England was the channel through which virtu ally all questionable mail matter flowed. The postal censor in London was the dam which held the flood of continental mail’until each portion of It could he pass> d upon and approved before be ing scattered over the wide world. An idea of the Immensity of the task can be obtained from tbe fact that a stalT of nearly a hundred expert lin guists was constantly employed to ex amine and approve mail matter writ ten and printed in more flmn a hun dred languages and dialects. Manu scripts in every conceivable tongue found their place in this great mass of mall, estimated at about 150,000 let ters daily. Much of the mall was passed with only mechanical Inspection, so sure did the examiners become of certain cate gories of communieations. But con siderable more than the time saved on harmless mall was consumed in ex haustive examination and tests ol questionable matter, some of which was subjected to all manner of acid and X-ray Inquiry to detect hidden messages. Smuggling Prevented. There was also for a time a great smuggling campaign, harmless looking bundles such us newspapers contain ing various commodities then obtain able in enemy countries, such as cof fee, rice, tobacco, sugar, and so on Some even contained rubber hiddtn be tween the pages of the papers. Tbe most-sought-after evidence was that of military character, and the censorship of mails more than repaid its expensive outlay in detecting In formation that might have wrought havoc with allied arms, or at leasl helped Germany in no uncertain de gree. There Is little doubt that none of that character of information which the censorship obtained will be made public, but officials directing Britain’s war machines have not been slow to saj that thanks to tin; postal censorshlf much valuable military information, ol every conceivable character, came to their attention! Propaganda was the greatest anc most constant effort of the Germans The most harmless appearing sets oi newspapers and magazines, some ol them with covers dated befpre th( war, dispatched from neutral nations to Individuals or societies, such as scl entitle organizations, were often fount to contain the latest German accuse tions of British mismanagement ir Egypt, India or Ireland. Books, not al ways In German, were found to con tain everything except what the title proclaimed. The postal censorship to day possesses an Intensely interesting museum of many of the propagandi carriers the Germans sent out, o caused to he scut ut from their agenti In neutral countries.
