In Great Britain about 22 per cent of all meat consumed Is mutton. In France It is about 11 per cent. In Canada It Is not quite 7, and In the United Slates Is only about 3% per cent. Last year (1918) the consump tion of dressed meat (lard excluded) In the United States averaged 15(i pounds per person, of which only 5 were mutton and lamb. The British, tjie Canadians, apd thp French—all similar types of people and having habits of life similar to Americans —use less meat than Amer icans do, but a much larger proportion comes from sheep. The United States gets its meat principally from cattle and (logs. Fork consumption is about M times, and beef consumption about 13 times, as great as our use of mut. ton and lamb. These are the annual averages for last year. Bag Change* Into a Float. A British Invention for the relief of aeronauts making voyages over exten sive stretches of water consists of a more or less circular gas bag In the center of which Is stretched a "floor” of heavy fabric.

THURMONT, FREDERICK COUNTY, MD., THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1919. NEED NOT TRANSFER GERMS Disease Will Not Be Transmitted if Soiled Hands Are Kept Away From Mouth. It Is glaringly obvious that the bit ing of Huger nails, the moistening of fingers In turning the pages of a book, and similar half-conscious acts greatly enhance the opportunities fur planting undesirable germs where they can mul tiply,” says the Journal of the Ameri can Medical Association. “On the fingers they may be harmless; trans ferred to the mouth they have a wide field for development. “The soiling of the hands Is Impos sible to avoid altogether, but the swal lowing of germs from one’s own soiled hands Is largely under Individual con trol. “It may fairly be assumed that the most useful safeguards against this form of disease transmission are to be found in such practices as hood wash ing and In refraining from using the tongue or the lips as a molsteaing-pad, rather than in hysterical attempts at avoidance of all hand contamination. Children are best protected through the inculcation of similar desirable habits at an early age. In a word, some degree of hand-contamination Is unavoidable; but the truusfflrenw of the contaminating germs to the mouth Is largely under individual control and Is subject to the powerful influence of early-formed habit.’* A Family Newspaper— lndependent In Politics—Devoted to Literature.

Ritchie, Democra’ic nominee for Governor, is the present Attorney General of Maryland, to which office he was elected four years ago by a majority of about 25.000 votes, running far ahead of the rest of the ticket. Mr. Ritchie received his general education in Baltimore City and was grad uated from the law school of the University of Maryland in 1898. In the same year he began the practice of law with the law firm of Steele, Semines, Cary & Bond. Two years later he became a member of the firm. In March 1903, Mr. Ritchie was appointed Assistant City Solicitor. In November of the same year he formed a law partnership with Stuart S. Janney. Since 1907 Mr. Ritchie has been Professor of Law at the University of Maryland. In July, 1910, Mr. Ritchie became People’s Counsel to the Public Service Commission of Maryland. One of the most important events in his career was the fight made by him in 1912 as People’s Counsel for cheaper gas in Baltimore City. Practically single-handed, Mr. Ritchie was pitted against the best experts in the country and the ablest legal talent the Gas Company could employ. He devoted all of his time for nine months to the fight, and his efforts resulted in a brilliant victory. The price of gas was reduced from 90 to 80 cents per 1,000 cubic feet, and the price of electricity from 10 to 8§ cents per K. W. H. Mr. Ritchie resigned as People’s Counsel in February 1913, to resume the practice of his profession. More than a year later it was charged that the gas c< nr any had evaded the reduction in the price of gas by lowering the quality. Mr. Ritchie devoted the summer of 1914 to a study of this question, which he made as \ a private citizen and at his own expense. He filed a brief with the Public Service Commission and appeared before it at the hearings in behalf of the people of Baltimore. His work resulted in another victory when the Commission ordered the Gas Company either to restore the former quality of gas or to further reduce the price. The Gas Company decided to reduce the price to 75 cents per 1,000 cubic feet. The fights made by Mr. Ritchie, in and out of hffice, saved the people of Baltimore an amount estimated to total about $700,000 annually. When Mr. Ritchie announced his candidacy for the Governorship in May, 1919, the Baltimore News said editorially: “Attorney General Ritchie’s announcement of his candidacy for the Dern cratic nomination for Governor is in response to a wide spread desire in his party that he make the race. It has been manifested in many ways, and Mr. Ritchie’s friends may properly declare that in his case the office is seeking the man. His candidacy is of interest and importance to the citizenship of the State, regardless of party, because Mr. Ritchie is distinctly gubernatorial calibre.” Mr. Ritchie was born on August 29, 1876, and is the son of the late Judge Albert Ritchie, of the Supreme Bench of Baltimore City. Judge Ritchie was a native of Frederick, Maryland, but spent the greater part of his life in Baltimore where he attained eminence in hia profession and finally was elected to the bench, j Mr. Ritchie’s uneje, Judge John Ritchie, of Frederick was a Congressman and later a member of the Maryland Court of Appeals. His earliest paternal American ancestor was William Ritchie who was born in the county of Angus, Scotland in 1726 and came to America in about 1742. Subscribe for The Clarion. SI.OO. Fined $lO And Costs. The case against John Cramer, of Graceham who was charged with assault and battery of a young girl of Emmits burg, Goldie Haugh, was heard in the I Circuit Court Tuesday morning. The evidence in the case indicated that young Cramer, aged sixteen accompani ed by two other young men stopped a car in which they were riding and that Cra mer jumped out and asked Goldie Haugh, Anna Haugh, and Laura Adelsberger, when they happened to meet to enter the car for a ride. When the girls refused Cramer grabbed Goldie Haugh by the arm whereupon she called h*m a name, , and he retaliated by asking her to “go to h The evidence conflicted on > only one point, whether or not Cramer 5 slapped Miss Haugh when he asked her i to “go to h ” . Chief Judge Hammond Urner in an nouncing the verdict of guilty stated that in inflicting the sentence the court was " influenced by the consideration of what might have happened if the three girls | had gotten into the car with three ir j responsible young men. He said all the I evidence in the case indicated that the three girls were going to their homes after having been to church, that Cra -1 mer an absolute stranger by his own ad mission asked them to take a ride and , the girls refused and that he grabbed one of them by the arm and told her he wished to speak with her, that that of itself constituted an assault that on her persisting in refusing, he, according to his own account, became angry and asked her to “go to h ,” and that it was the court’s opinion that she might have gotten to that very place if she had ac cepted his invitation. The sentence of the court was a fine of $lO and costs, or $55. Miller For Sheriff. Marion C.Miller, Woods' oro’s “figh'ing magistrate,” and with whom someThur mont voters are familiar, has announced his intentioii of becoming an independent candidate for sheriff of Frederick county. Miller is a Republican and states that he will make a canvas of the county prior to the election. He is also the third Re publican to run independent, the other I two being Senator Geo. L. Kaufman for I State Senator and Prof. S. Fenton Har ris for County Treasurer. The addition of independent candidates should have a tendency to broaden thesmdeof the reg ular Democratic candidates.

GIVES COST OF GREAT WAR Informa Them of Lives and Treasure Poured Out to Save Civilization. (By Mt. -Clemens News Bureau) Aboard President Wilson’s Special tram —carrying his war agumsl who oppose the adoption by the bai led States ot the peace treaty and the covenani of the League of Nations m to their households, President Wilson last Week invaded California. And there, where the question on which ,eugue opponents have ham mered the hardest, tliatot Shan Tung— Is of most Interes., the president found the same enthusiasm among the peo ple for peace and for Insurance against future wars. The people want the long controversy ended. They want this country to be able to again turn Its undivided attention to social, economic and lndus*rla! development Their 1 aders may not feel this way, but judging from the expressions Which met the prr 1 lent on every - side. The leaders have overstepped the limit; of the peoples patience in their stubborn determination lo force a change in the groat document. Must Take This League. “We must take this League of Na tions,” said the president, “for '.here is no way in which another can be obtained without compelling recou sideration by the powers. And it would sit very 111 upon my stomach to take it back to Germany for considera tion.’’ “All over the world people are look ing lo us with confidence our rivals along with the weaker nations. I pray God that the gentlemen who are de laying this thing may presently see it In a different light.’’ Germany, the president declared, is taking new courage from our delay in ratifying the treaty and her news papers and public men were again be coming arrogantly out-spoken. Deeply impressive were the figures dF the cost of the late war, In lives and dollars. It was the first time that the official statistics have been made public and the tremendous totals shocked the president’s audiences. Shows Cost of World War. “The war.” said President Wilson, lost Great. Britain and and her Do mains $38,000,000,000; France $26,000,. 900,000; the United States $22,000,- 000,000; Russia $18,000,000,000; Italy $13,000,000,000 and a total, including the expenditures of Japan, Belgium and other small countries, ot $123,000,. 000,000. “It cost the Central Powers as fol lows; Germany $30,000,000,000; Aus tria-Hungary, $21,000,000,000; Turkey and Bulgaria $3,000,000,000. “The United States,” the president said, “spent one million dollars an hour night and day for two years in its struggle to save civilization. All this, however, fades Into Insigni ficance when the deaths by battle are considered,” declared the president. Russia gave 1,- 700.000 men; Germany 1,600,000; France 1,380,000; Great Britain 900,- 000; Italy 361,000; the United States 50,300. In all, almost 7,500,000 men perished In the great struggle, or 1.500.000 more men than died in all of the wars ot the previous 100 years. Should Remember Recent Horrors. “These are terrible facts, and we ought never to forgot them. We wort into this war to do a thing that was fundamental for the world and what I have come out on this journey for is lo determine whether the country haa forgotten or not. I have found out. The country has not forgotten and it will never permit any who stands in the way of the fulfillment of our great pledges, ever to forget tire sor rowful day he made the attempt,” Arbitration and discussion, the pres ident pointed out, must replace force of arms In the settlement of world controversies. Constantly he dwells upon the fact that all the nations in the League agree to do one ot two things, first to submit their differences to arbitration, in which case they agree to abide by the decision ren dered, or, if unwilling to arbitrate, to have their case discussed by the Coun cil of the League, In which case six months Is granted for discussion. Three months must elapse following the result of this last step In arbitra tion before the nation concerned can declare war. Holds Out Hope for Ireland. The president took advantage of questions propounded by the San Fran cisco Labor Council to give the infer ence that he believes Ireland can bring her case before the League of Nations for settlement when the League is actually in existence. Shan Tung, he declared, will be re turned to China. Japan, he said, had given her solemn pledge to that affect. And with the League of Nations In force, said the president, we can, If occasion arises, stand forth and say, “This shall be doue.” Terms SI.OO in Advance. NO. 29
