Don’t fail to put your advertise ment in the Christmas Tree. Shipping Ice. —Hon. Jno. S. Combs, of Lonaooning, had his large ioo-houso filled this week with ice procured from the reservoir of this town. One of our friends says he is per fectly willing to go into partnership with some capitalist on the proposed new Lunatic Asylum, and let the capitalist furnish the money and he will find the lunatics. Signor Bosco, a magician, showed here several evenings this week and last. The tricks performed wore mostly old, but the presents giren at each entertainment were quite handsome and useful. Railroad Items. —Since the weath er moderated the authorities have been busy pushing forward the work on the new station house of the 0. C. & G. railroad at Porapey Smash. The track on the new road has been laid across the old Detmold plane at Lonaconing; will make the new Det mold by the first of next week. Accidents. — Miss Ruth Womsley, of Eokhart, whilst walking with a gentleman last Sunday on Bowery street, stepped on the edge of a broken board on the sidewalk, and tell very heavily to the ground, cutting her arm and bruising herself. William T. Close, a miner employed in the Johnson mine, had his right leg broken, and whs otherwise injured by a fall of breast coil, Thursday morning. While Mrs. Win, Davis, of Graham’s addition, was walking near the brick yard, Sunday last, shesuddenly slipped cn ice and fell, breaking her log. Fairs and Festivals. —The con gregation of St. Michaels Church will commence this (Saturday) evening a fair and festival for the benefit of the church. The preparations for a mag nificent and valuable display arc com plete and visitors and patrons may anticipate pleasant surprises. The fair will continue through the holidays. The members of Borden Shaft M. ' E. Church, will open their fair this, (Saturday) evening in Odd Fellows I Opera House, this town. They will offer a complete assortment of goods suitable for Christmas gifts. This (Saturday) evening the German Reformed congregation will ooraraenoc a fair in Paul's Opera House, and con tinue during the week. The display j of novelties and holiday goods will bo o.i an extensive scale, and their | patrons are promised enjoyable even ’8 S - The various Sunday Schools are greatly augmenting in numb, ra at present. Tide is no doubt due'qto the fact that the teachers and superinten dents will shortly give their pupils a Christmas treat, and the irrepressible small boy, who is always looking for n stray “enipfc" in the gutter, fixes himself up and struts into the school room with all tho dignity at his com mand ; he is assigned n place in a class, and the first question ho wants answered is : “When air yer goin’ to giv us that Chrismus treat?” The feast comes off in limo, the small boy is there, he gets his candies and or anges, and nine chances out of ton if he doesn’t steal half-a-dozen other children’s packages before bo leaves. There is no discount on the average American boy, and we’ll place him against anything of his size all day, give his opponent all the odds, and then oar boy will “get away" with him. City Council Proceedings. —The City Council met at 7 o'clock Monday evening; present, John B. MoCulloh, mayor, and the following councilman : A. J. Willison, Philip Michael, Potor Kneirom, Benjamin J. Thomas, John S. Grove and George Hoskins. Thos. G. Mason, clerk, and George 11. Eis leller, bailiff. Little business of importance was transacted. W. Y. McCulloh appeared before the council and stated that he had completed Lis contract for delivering stone on the streets through (ho town, the quantity being about 525 perches. An order was passed requiring the late collectors of corporation taxes for tho years 187 C, 1877 and 1878 tc re poit the monies collected by them trom delinquents, and alco return a list of all delinquents to date with amounts owing by them respectively. A number of bills wore acted upon and ordered to be paid. Nothing further claiming the atten tion of the Council it adjourned until the second Monday night in January. j Death of the Superintendent of the Hampshire and Baltimore Coal Company. —On last Sunday morning our community was greatly shocked by the intelligence that the popular superintendent of the Hamp shire and Baltimore Coal Company, r Mr. Charles W. Shaw, had died sud denly tho day preceding, at his home in Piedmont, W. Va. Tho deceased was a native of Newark, N. J., whence he came about 1870 to accept a clerk ship in the store of W. L. Shaw & Co., ■ Cumberland. In a short while Mr. Shaw removed to Piedmont, and was , made assistant superintendent of the i abovo-named company, which position I ha held until the resignation of Mr. M. Sinclair, the superintendent, when , he was appointed to Mr. Sinclair's , place, and has hold the position ever I since with credit. . Mr. Shaw was a brother of Major , Alex, and Messrs. J. K. and W. L. Shaw, of Baltimore, and of tho late I J. J. Shaw, this county. The deceased I was married June sth, 1880, to Miss Marion, daughter of Judge Douglas Percy, of this town. Sho was with 1 her husband at tho time of his death. He was a young man of excellent business attainments and fine social ’ qualities, and had a number of warm 1 personal friends in this 00011011 who will deeply regret his sudden demise. ■ He leaves a number of friends and a young wife to whom wo extend our 1 heartfelt condolence. His funeral ■ took place Tuesday from his late rosi ' dance in-Piedmont, and his remains taken to Cumberland and deposited in Rose Hill cemetery. A large num , her of our prominent citizens were present. He was about 33 years old. 1 Some workmen on Monday cut from tho heart of a locust tree, six teen inches in diameter, on the town . farm of the Consolidation coal corapa- ! ' ny a horse-shoe nail of the old hand- j ' made style. Tho nail had been bent 1 and point driven in head downward, i When and by whom was it placed there ?—io the question agitating some | 1 minds. The former can be easily an swered by any one who can tell how | long tho tree has been growing around tho nail. Then, perhaps, tho identity | of the man who drive it can be traced, and even tbe'man who made it. Our i ' own judgment is—it is the nail for j the want of which a shoe was lost, etc. I In which event it was a very disas trious nail. Mining Notes.-— Blaon Avon mine ] loaded several cars this week for local j trade. ! Midlothian and Johnson mines re- : i suraed work Thursday morning. [ The following mines arc working j half-time : Swanton, Potomac and ■ i Pekin. j Franklin, Phoenix and the Georges j Creek coal and iron company’s mines 1 are working.

Census Returns — Allegany's In crease.—Tho official returns of the late census just published, place the ! population of Allegany county at | 38,011, against 38,530 in 1870, when tho county included Garrett. Tho j population of Garrett is given as ! 12,175, and the two counties together ! show tho unusually large increase of ; 12,000 since the last census. So Al legany, if not divided, would have i shown a larger increase than any other in the State, except Baltimore county, which has an increase ol j 20,000. The average increase in the counties is about 3,000 each. The I total population of the State by Ihe , last census was 780,394. The total j increase so far as returned is 140,000, ! and the three outstanding counties will probably swell it to over 150.000, making the population of tho Slate in Ihe neighborhood of 931,000, or an ! increase of twenty per cent.

Dr. Thrall, of Cumberland, visited a number of friends in town this week. lion. B. L. Turner Las disposed of tho vexed question, lie says “it was uwlerdood in the Legislature that the asylum was to bo built upon the alms nouso farm." The Court of Appeals differs with him upon the force of this ! point. Tho latter holds that such things cannot be il not expressed in the law, and while Mr. T. was cutting 1 down the amount to be issued from SOO,OOO to $30,000, he should have also injected his understanding ol the location in the hill. This little “omis sion of foresight" lias cost, the Times ' alone a world of unhappiness. !
