Week Ending, April 2, 1881 i The Journal asked “the solid people to vote for the best men at the corporate elec tion,” thenonlytwo days off. “Do notpermit the election of degenerate into a burlesque. The business people are most interested. It is n.ostly their money that is to be collected and expended, and it is their duty to see that capable trustees are elected to perform those honorable, responsible duties. To surrender their own obligations now is to close their own lips when the cause for com plaint comes.” Hon. A. J. Colburn, of the Pennsylvania House of Delegates, and the Meyersdale Commercial differed quite strenuously about some public matters, but Mr. Colburn had time to get after the great insurance com panies also —“a diversion which,” the Jour nal said, “is a serious matter for the insur ance companies, but a glorious tiling for the population of the Commercial office.” Noah Skidmore, sr., was nominated for Mayor ; John Preston, James Taylor, George Johnson, James P. Smith, George A. Lam mert and Andrew Smeltz, for Councilmen, were nominated by the republicans at a primary Tuesday, March 29, 1881. George W. Fisher was chairman, and John Grose secretary. George Johnson was a colored man. Mr. Skidmore’s name was on two other tickets; James Taylor, James P. Smith, George Johnson and George A. Lammert. Thomas G. McCuUoh for Mayor; A. J. Willison. Silas W. Duggan, W. H. Evans, Joseph Jandorf and Samuel Jeffries—a mixed ticket, was also proposed. Henry Williams commenced grading the lot on Union street he had lately purchased preparatory to establishing a marble-yard. Messrs. A. C. Greene, George Henderson, Thomas G. McCulloh, P. L. Burwell, A. Hunter Boyd, H. B. Shaffer and S, A. Munn, were announced as incorporators of the pro posed new- summer hotel company, the structure to be erected in the east end of Frostburg. Arrangements were made to run B. and 0. R. passenger trains through to New- York, beginning April 3d. Sometime during Sunday night, March 27th, a thief or thieves broke into Marx Wineland’s clothing store and took between $l5O and S2OO worth of hats, clothing and jewelry. A dog, guarding the premises, made no noise. The Journal quotes Frank C. Beall as saying—“ail Arlington Stove, and a pretty woman to preside over it, go hand in hand with ‘love in a cottage.’ ” The Frostburg Fire Department’s fair, held for the benefit of Mrs. Benjamin Bowen, netted $141.80, and that sum was transmitted to her. Mrs. Margaret Trimble, wife of Mr. Henry \ Trimble, near Mt. Savage, died March 27, 1881, aged 36 years. He is a meek and humble feller— Of quiet and sober views; They’ve put him up for Councilman, And will not let him refuse, 1 He swears he is not a candidate For a special class of men, ( And wont have the place at any price— But it was impossible for the Journal to find a word to rhyme with “men,” except 1 hen, and as female suffrage hadn’t ensued ! yet, the voter would have to sustain some other nominee. j Hon. John S. Combs, of Lonaconing, re ported as recovering from a protracted ( illness. Charley Reiehenbaeh and family removed , from Frostburg to Piedmont, W. Va. i Against The Rainy Day, “Prom immemorial time the wise i have admonished the foolish to ‘lay up , something against the rainy day.’ Now i comes forward the new-thought nioye ment, or something of the sort, and ad- , monishes the foolish not even to think about the rainy day. If you think ’ about it, says the new-thought seer, that will bring the rainy day, which really , doesn’t exist, you know. This calls to mind that excellent joke about the fel low from the backwoods who visited a menagerie and looked long and critically at a giraffe. Finally he remarked; “Huh! The’ ain’t no sich animal.’’ “Despite the neyy thought,ers, it is just as wise now as it ever was to ‘lay up against the rainy day.’ The United States government, realizing this fact, has established the postal savings bank system, by means of which millions of persous who heretofore have spent their incomes to the final farthing will lay up rainy-day money in future, “We have In our city adequate means for conserving funds to be used on the ‘rainy day.’ Iu placing funds on de posit in the Frederick bauks we can justly have the feeling of unusual secur ity that they will have safe and proper keeping. “A piece of real estate makes au ex cellent rainy day investment, A few dollars a month put into the buying of a lot pr a few aores of land will mean in time the ownership of a home, the ees. sation of rent-paying, and the solid satis faction of knowing that you no longer are slaves to landlords. “Lately we have been hearing a great deal of talk similar to the sort men tioned. There are persons who insist that disease do“s not exist, that pain is merely a mental condition. Let one of these persons have a boil on the back of his neck and his mental condition will be altered to conform ta the boil He will discover that a boil i a real entity and pain a physical condition. “The world is progressing rapidly, but we still have a number of old fashioned things which, like the I poor, are always with us The proverbial rainy day is one thing, which, if not al ways with us, is about as certain as death and faxes.”— Frederick News. For “Frederick banks” Frostburgers should read Frostburg banks. In The Realm Of Fraternity. After initiating several candidates last Tuesday evening a “smoker” was held bv Mountain Castle, No. 16, Knights of the Golden Eagle. The First M. E. Church Quartet —Samuel R. Tiddy, William Davis, James H. Bond and D. W. Kalbaugh, rendered several selec tions most acceptably. Addresses and recitations were made and refreshments served. The “social” feature of this -Lodge will be observed the third Tues day of every month. Horace S. Clark, Peter Lammert and M. T. Cooper are the committee in charge. Special Notice. People who are going to make appli cation for license to sell liquors should prepare themselyes for having their ap plications published in the Journal of April Bth—not later. Business Movements. R. E. Talbott, of the “Dreamland Theatre,” has established a wall-paper and interior decoration office in the Walker building, corner Orman street and Broadway, No. 41 latter street. He represents Talbott Brothers in Frost burg, and is himself an artist in both decorating and painting. George J. Wittig received Tuesday two “Overland” automobiles, reputed to be the very latest and best in the market. “The Fred. P. Sloan Orchard Com pany of Lonaconing, Md.,” has been in corporated with a capital stock of $lO,- 000. The incorporators are Messrs. Fred. P. Sloan, James M. Sloan, M. Percy Sloan, Alex. Sloan and Henry W. Hodgson. Office in Lonaconing. An other good example. John R Hamilton, of Lonaconing, has been appointed superintendent of the George’s Creek Coal Company, via R. L. Somerville, deceased. As assist ant to Col. Somerville he is particularly well qualified to materialize the plans for complete and profitable development of the company’s valuable property. , Messrs. L. J. Ort and William B. Phillips, of Midland, are leading pro moters of a shirt factory, proposed for that place, and the outlook for its insti tution and establishment is good. Men Wanted. “Philip’s Boy” advertises for hus bands for two Cumberland girls, who, although past 30, are said to be “young.” Two miners came near responding be cause both girls are “guaranteed to 1 wash,” but when they saw that “farm- ] ers are preferred” they backed down. ■ The “Boy” proposes to do the inter- 1 mediate “courting free.” ' ] Personal.

Lewis, Congressman, and will ( enter upon his duties soon as the extra session begins—April 4. A bank oashier, , several times an editor, and, lastly, a ( job printer, Mr, Clayton’s financial and esoteric qualifications fit him to his new j position with an emphasis peculiarly ( triune. He was in Frostburg last Satur- , day auditing the congratulations of . many friends. Leaving Lonaconing nearly three ( months ago, Dr, and Mrs, George Sloan have arrived at their home—North Yak ima, Washington, accompanied by Mas ter Karl Bell, a relative of Mrs. Sloan. 1 They went via New Orleans, Los An- 1 geles and San Francisco. Re-visiting . his native town this time was an occa- i sion of great mutual interest—to him as i one cherishing the best hopes and wish- 1 ea for the home of his boyhood and i youth, and to his contemporaries be- t cause of the latest spirit of enterprise i thus aroused and stirred into action, i All up and down the Creek, therefore, i the invitation is unanimous—“come agaiu, doctor 1” Mrs, Henry Wagus, of Miller Mines, visited friends in town recently.

Brevities. While Midlothian has the greatest in dividual cattle-buyer hereabout, and Frostburg has the greatest horse-buyer and three of the greatest chicken-raisers, there doesn’t seem to be much left worth while for Cumberland and the other places.

Not From Politeness. This was heard in an overcrowded Boston elevated train yesterday: “Say, Dick,” said the young man, whose football tactics had won him a strap in the rush. “Say, Dick, I’ve been riding in on the “L” every morning except Sundays and holidays for two years, and I’ve never given up a seat to a lady yet.” “You’re a polite one!” sneered Dick. “Nothing of the kind,” retorted the young man, “I’ve never had a seat to give up.” Boston Post. That sort of thing often happens this side of the place where the Great Right Hand Opening’s Advocate is pub lished. HENRY F. COOK, Manager. w HOLE Number, !2,0c>4:. BRIGHTEN IIP YOUR WINDOWS. I Letting Your Light Shine Is Best Way to Draw Trade. NOTHING GOOD IN DIMNESS. Store Which Displays Merchandise At tractively Under Bright Illumination Is the One Which Makes Money For Its Enterprising Owner. “Let your light shine before men,” the good book says In advising men to live spiritual lives. The words are written figuratively, and the advice Is good considered from an ethical view point. It Is good also If the words are taken at their literal meaning. “Let your light shine before men” If you are a business man and desire trade. Light up your store windows, make a show, and the show will make busi ness for you. Have you ever watched a crowd of folks out strolling on a fine evening? They stop to look into the store win dows, and the thing which attracts them and which brings them In to buy Is the light displaying every piece of goods to the best advantage. The well lighted store gets the trade. The dim window attracts nobody and makes no prosperity for its unenterprising owner. This Is not an advertisement for any system of lighting. Any Is good which lets the folks see what it Is you have to sell. The windows of a store are like the face of a man. If they are bright and shining and happy looking they seem to radiate prosperity and good feeling and naturally tend to draw the pennies and the dollars out of the pockets of the passersby. If they are gloomy or lowering or dull or dingy or unattractive they repel cus tomers and fall to bring Into the pock ets of their owner the shekels for which he Is In business. Get busy, light up your windows, make a show and notice how quickly trade will brighten up. Lighting bills are a small Item in comparison with the profits to be made by displaying your goods brightly and attractively. Speaking on this subject, a maga zine devoted to the interests of one method of lighting said recently: “In these days of progress and Im provement the up to date merchant must realize that to keep abreast of the times It becomes necessary for f'f £-&•***' ^ W 'Q ’-S’vvA- ■ •Y & s&§ \ V WELL LIGHTED AND ARRANGED FRUIT ERER’S WINDOW. him to use up to date methods of doing business and, if possible, to keep just ahead of his neighbor. “The question of store lighting Is of supreme Importance when one consid ers the thousands of men and w omen who in the evenings take their fam ilies or stroll alone through the lighted thoroughfare making their purchases. Often they are undecided as to just what they desire, and naturally they are drawn to the store that makes It a point to present Its wares most at tractively. “No one ever cares to gaze Into a gloomy or dimly lighted store. It Is the warm, brilliant aspect presented by a well lighted store that attracts the public and Increases the purchas ing power tenfold. In any large city it can be noticed that the majority of people at night patronize the stores that are located on the side of the street or avenue that Is most lighted. It Is a common sight to see one side of an avenue crowded while the other side is almost empty, due to the fact that the well lighted stores attract. “Some time ago It was said that sci entific salesmanship was the best as set a merchant possessed, but now adays It Is different. The interest cre ated by well lighted goods neatly dis played Is far more productive than any other method used, the object be ing to first interest the customer, after which the sale is assured.” *4* *l* 4* 4* 4' *l* 4* 4 1 *** 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* 4- 4* *** *!* 4* 4* 4 * 4* Trading at home means life to *• i a town.
