School Attendance.
We wish to call the attention of the
patrons of our school to the fact that in
order that the pupils may get the full
benefit of the courses they are pursuing,
it is very necessary that they attend
school regularly. •
Our school started off with a fine en
rollment and the attendance, so far, has
been very good with, however, a few
cases of absentees that could have been
Many of the failures to pass success
fully through High School can be traced
back to the pupil’s staying out a day
now and then, and the parent being coax
ed into furnishing a plausible excuse that
would pass with the principal. This hab
it, once started, grows on a child like a
snowball grows as it rolls down a steep
hillside. After a while the child would
rather loaf than go to school. The con
sequence is that he becomes dissatisfied
with his work and his teacher, and very
frequently, without any reason at all,
finds fault with the teacher. He thinks
the teacher does not take as much inter
est in him as he does in the other mem
bers of his class, whereas, the real trouble
is, the child is not taking any interest in
himself so far as getting an education is
concerned. His next step is to carry his
grievance to some friend, who, after
hearing his complaint, will render judg
ment something like this; “If I were you
and felt that the teacher was not giving
me a square deal I would not go to school
any more.” Instead of being a friend,
one who gives a boy advice like that is
his worst enemy. Such advice sometimes
encourages a boy to stop going to school
and ends abruptly what might, if he had
faithfully and diligently continued his
school work, have led to a useful and
brilliant career.
Thurmont, as we all know, has a high
school that any town might well be proud
of. The faculty, grade teachers as well
as high school teachers, have their whole
heart in the work and want to bring the
the school up to the highest possible
standard—to a standard that the town
can be proud of. To do this we must
have regular attendance and to have that
we need the help of not only every patron
but of every person in the town.
There have always been some boys and
girls, more especially boys, who disliked
going to school —we have them now. It
should be the duty of every one to help
keep these childree in school and we ear
nestly entreat every one to do his bit to
ward that end. If a case of “I don’t like
to go to school” comes under your obser
vation, for the sake of the boy, his home,
your town, give him all the good advice
you can and urge him to go to school. X.
County C. £. Convention.
On Thursday, September 25th, a num
ber of County C. E. people will meet in
Trinity Reformed church to discuss mat
ters of interest to everybody. Some of
the officers of the State C. E. Society

I Stati* Offers High-Orade Stock
at Cost; Fall Planting Season
i Now At Hand.
\ Baltimore, St pt. 12. —State For
i ester F. W. Hesley announces that
I orders are being received for stock
from the State Forest Nursery, and
J that there are numerous inquiries
from all parts of the State regarding
the high-grade stock at bottom prices
which the Board of Fop stry has
made available to residents. The
btate Fort at Nurseiy naturally’ do s
I not work at a profit, while at the
san.i lime il maintains a constant
and uniform standard of excellence.
The combination appeals to the plant
*j er, and each season thoroughly drains
, ! the Nursery at an early date of all
j the stock which can Is- made avail
- aide. Mr. Besley’s advice to “order
early’’ is therefore timely and nec
’l essnry.
; This year there are l‘d kinds of
, tries in 59 differ* nt sizes and ages
- from which to make a choice. Brices
vary from the three dollars asked for
a thousand 1 to 2 inch Norway Spruce
for reforestation purposes, to the 65
j cents which represents the expense:
of growing and offering to the plant-1
ing public an elm or an ash trans-1
! plant in al2to 15 foot size. There
are white and loblolly pines, Norway
| spruce, and bald cypress among the
i conifers; in hardwoods there is a
(great variety, with black walnut,
I I red oak, scarlet oak, pin oak, burr
I oak, sugar maple, pecan, American
elm, ash, beech, black locust, and,
| oriental plane. They represent, they
' seem to us, the greatest bargain sale ;
which the State Forest Nursery has
ever offered to the public.
Inquiries addressed to the Board
' of Forestry, at 311 West Monument
Street, Baltimore will elicit prompt
replies. In addition to the trees at l
cost the Board supplies the informa-1
tion that goes with them. If you
have land you don’t know what to (
do with; if there are a few acres on
your farm that won’t support the (
least exacting of the vegetables; if ,
you know of a yard that has no (
greenery to greet the tired business (
man when he gets home at night—
get busy, and get in touch with Mr. ,
Besley and the Board. Plan to
plant in October, and early in Nov
ember. Order - now, and you will
doubtless be accomodated fully.
Order later, and you may be dis

All of Mr. DeMille’s pictures are “difficult” because they must be as neatly perfect as K*
skil l , application, art and industry can make them. And anything that is worth while usu. lly M
presents difficulties.
“The Sq aw Man” h* wever, may have presented greater problems than the majority, |R|
because it is a production of greater magnitude, with a large cast of unusual calibre, with the m
necessity for striking sets and wonderful exterior scenes, and withal an attention to detail, tech- Bill
nical and artistic, that meant hours of study over many scenes and much prepa atory work.
“The Squaw Man” is a drama of the most graphic character, with intense human inter- H
est, stirring heart appeal and unrivaled charm of character and depiction.

Provides $5,000 Fine Or Five
Years In Jail For Shipping
Stolen Motors.
I Washington, Sept. 13. —Auto
I thieves will soon face a fine of §5,000
or five years in jail under the terms
i of a bill introduced in the House hy
Representative Igoe, of Missouri, to
i protect the (5,500,(XX) autonmbies in

this legislation, the bill will he re

promise that it will pas promptly.
According to figures furnished by
the American Automobile Association
22,273 cars were stolen in 101 S in 1!)
western cities. Detroit led with
2,(539 thefts, followed hy Chicago
with 2,(511, St. Louis with 2,2> r > 1 and
Cleveland with 2,070. Cincinnati
suffered least with 3)8. Kansas City
led in the percentage of 54 per cent,
of stolen cars regained.
Another surprising fact revealed by
the statistics was that Ohio leads all
States in the Union with 404,820
cars. New York is second with 430,-
032, Pennsylvania third with 407,023
and Illinois fourth with 407,371.
Nevada has the fewest with 8,153.
The National Automobile Dealers’
Association is asking manufacturers,
representative Dyer said, for the bet
ter identification of cars by more
complete numbering of the compon
ent parts. Usually the engine alone
is numbered, but the thief promptly
chisels the number off. I

antitheft laws, notably Pennsylvania,
where the penalty for stealing is a
