Do not despair because your feet are \yeary, Lest, being weak, you stumble by the way; For though the way is oft-times dark and dreary, In time you’ll find the light of perfect day. Care not if others scoff at each endeavor, Or to their level try to drag you down ; Face to the front and, looking upward ever, Thus triumph over wrong and win a crown. Tired heart, go not about in trouble weeping— ’Tis always the darkest just before the day; When misgivings you feel about you creeping Put on your armor strong, and watch and pray. Look ever upward ! though clouds gather o’er you Be brave, and by the right take up your stand! There will appear in soft, bright rays before you The Light that never failed on sea or land! Mount higher—and still higher, till in mounting, Your cares forgot, you reach the longed-for goal; You count all naught if you can feel in counting The peace which work, well done, brings to the soul.

It spins not, neither does it toil, yet a girl in all her rose-cheek glory costs not like one of these. — Gen. Kear Hosken. Disappointment. The Eckhart Philosopher— “ Bay Yem iuy, one tern fufteen or sax years ago Yein Ratigan hae bane billed for original song en concert en Mester Parker’s burg, en Aye went to hear hem seng et.” Journal—“ Did you hear him ?” The E.

Lewis asked Joe Dufty yes terday— “ What time next Tuesday are you go ing to vote?” “Not till after dinner,” said Joe, “Wbp wfil you vote for, then ?” asked IJr, Lewis, "That depends almost altogether on how my dinner affects me,” said Joe, somewhat philosophically; “if it agrees with me pleasantly, I may vote the straight ticket; if unpleasantly, I’m al most sure to vote for two democrats; maybe only one; under no circumstances three l” Warning to Boys. Master John and Harry Pressman, two youths of 16 and 14 years respectively, sons of Henry Pressman, Mt. Pleasant street, this place, met with a serious ac cident Sunday night last at their home. The boys had gone to their room for the night, when John produced a cap used to discharge shots in blasting. The cap had a wire attached to it two or three yards long. The boys have a telegraph instrument in the room and, possibly, not realizing the danger, touched the wire to the battery, causing an explosion which terribly mangled the fore-finger and thumb of one of John’s hands, and, it is feared, caused the loss of sight of one of his eyes. Both boys were considerably marked other wise, causing the loss of much blood. John is in a Cumberland hospital, tak ing treatment for his eye from a specialist. Death of a Minister. Rev. John Edwards, of the Baltimore Conference, M. E. Church, died at his home in Baltimore Tuesday, March 29, 1911, aged 68 years. He had been ill about two weeks with bronchitis, but, it was supposed, not ser iously. He had so far recovered as to feel that he would be able to attend Con ference, now in session in Washington, D. C. But Providence ordered otherwise. Mr. Edwards was born in Cornwall, England, February 16, 1843, and became a minister in the Wesleyan Methodist Church when only 17 years old. Two days before sailing for this coun try Miss Annie Rogers became his wife. The first three years of residence in this country were spent in Pennsylvania and lowa. Leaving the latter State, he came to Pros'burg, expecting to remain here for life. He filled local pulpits meanwhile, and in 1870 was assigned to Bloomington circuit to supply a vacancy. The next year he joined the Baltimore Conference and later filled the office of pastor of New Creek (now Keyser) cir cuit, W. Ya. In service all the time, he had ministered to a number of large con gregations including Lonaconing and Mt. Savage, in this county. He was a brother of the late Walter Edwards and Mrs. Harry Odgers, both of this place, the latter still a resident. Others bereaved are Mrs. Edwards, a daughter—Miss Bessieß. Edwards; two sons, Prof. T. H. Edwards, of the Balti more City College, and Mr W. R. Ed wards, of the Baltimore Postoffice, and nine grandchildren. The funeral was held in the church of which he was latest pastor—the 24th Street, Baltimore, Wednesday, Rev. J. T. Nicholson, district superintendent, conducting the service and paying trib ute to the memory of a man of many , sterling qualities and of life-long devotion to his profession. Bealls, Bells and Belles. Gen. Kear Hosken was a guest of the Foresters at the dance one evening last week and reciprocated that body’s hos pitality by telling the Journal that “the function was a big success,” and, by the way,” he said —“Beall’s Orchestra played one very appropriate old field-waltz en titled ‘l’ve Got Rings on My Fingers and Bells on My Toes !” “Why so appropriate?” asked the paper that is unconditionally independent. “Well, at one time I had two belles on my toes!” “How did you know they were belles?” again queried the paper that is exclus ively great. “Because they weren’t on my fingers!” said Gen. Kear. “Is that the only reason ?” asked the Journal finally. “No; there is one more.” “What is it ?” “Why, they were the kind that don’t ring!’ ” Tale Of Several Cities. The per capita debt of Baltimore is $36.26; St. Louis $37.74; San Francisco $41.91; Philadelphia $56.08; Boston $112; New York $149.60; Frostburg ■ $9.12. Track And Field Next. The Maryland Agricultural College and Alumni will hold an Interscholastic 1 Track and Field Meet on the 20th of May, at College Park. On the same day will be held an Intercollegiate Meet in which St. John’s College, Western Maryland College and Washington Col lege are invited to contest with the i Maryland Agricultural College boys. The Interscholastic Meet is open to High Schools and Preparatory Schools of Maryland and District of Columbia. In order to encourage athletics throughout the State, four special events, the 100-yards, 220-yards and 440-yards runs, and the running broad jump will be added to the program, and will be open to the County Public Schools only. In this way the County Public School boys may have a good contest among themselves, in addition to entering the regular meet. The Agricultural College especially invites the county boys, and will be glad . to take care of them free of charge as long as they stay at the college. Medals will be given to first, second [ and third winners, and a banner to the winning school. t We advise the boys to get out and > train, and get into the game, j Running and jumping represent a > healthful, manly sport.

Slow Recognition. i On March 22, 1775, Patrick Henry, speak , ing in St. John’s Episcopal church at Rich ; mond, gave utterance to the famous declar ation: “Give me liberty or give me death.” On March 22, 1911, just 136 years later, Vir ginia paid tribute to the patriot’s memory by unveiling a tablet in that historic old 1 edifice. In some things the American peo ple are slow, and this is an evidence of that i fact. There are hundreds of Americans , who lived and died unknown outside their own little community who have been hon ored by imposing monuments to commem , orate a memory that would otherwise be soon forgotten, but in the case of Patrick ; Henry, whose fame will endure as long as the Republic, it is strange, indeed, that such a length of time should elapse before a sim ple bronze should be inscribed to his fame.—- Cumberland News. Comparing New England’s historical enterprises with the South’s tardiness in , this respect the Baltimore Sun of March 25th said— To read the ordinary history of the United States one would suppose that the battle of Bunker Hill was the Revolutionary War. It has a big monument, and every school child in the United States is taught about it. It is in everybody’s mouth. In point of fact, its effect upon the general result was negligible. The battle of Eutaw Springs, on the other hand, was a more bloody battle and one of the decisive battles of the war, and that is scarcely mentioned because it did not take place in New England. It can be seen why the Journal prints these observations. In an article prepared and set in type for the Journal of March 25th, but postponed for want of space, is this par agraph: It will be noted that among the battles in which he (Col. William Lamar) took prominent part is “Eutaw,” (should be Eu taw Springs, South Carolina,) related by the best historians as the fiercest encounter of the war. Indeed, it was a battle in which both sides won—two engagements, Ameri cans winning first, British the other ; latter, however, retreating during the night, leav ing their wounded. The general result was the most damaging of the war to British morale , reaching on through subsequent collisions with Ameri can valor to the bloodless and final triumph over a month later at Yorktown. If the Journal’s reference to the bat tle, designed and prepared for March 25th, had been published on that day, it would have been read in Balti more as the Sun's was here —at the same i moment. Educational Call Prof. George M. Ford, City Superin tendent of the Public Schools of Blue field, West Ya., paid a visit to the State Normal School a few days ago which pleased all—faculty and pupils. He de livered two addresses—one to the Senior Class and the other to the entire school during the assembly period. An edu cator of leading prominence in and out of his State, Prof. Ford is an up-to date school man. Hts visit here is the topic of much appreciative comment, and his addresses, ringing with profit able advice, will be remembered. A Successful Record. With real satisfaction we call the at tention of our readers to the fact that the Dill Remedies have been on the market for over thirty-five years. Hun dreds of rivals have sprung up during this long period, flourished a while, and then disappeared, but the Dill Prepara tions are more popular today than ever and seem likely to continue their suc cessful career as long as human ailments ' abide. Dill’s Balm of Life, a really famous medicine, is a remarkably effectual rem edy for Rheumatism, Neuralgia, Pleur -1 isy, Lumbago, Kidney and spinal trou bles and is equally effective in the treat ment of Diphtheria, Sore Throat, Chol era Morbus, Dysentery, LaGrippe, etc. ; In many a home Dill’s Balm of Life has come to be regarded as actually indis pensable. Mothers keep it constantly m 3 the medicine cupboard, and firmly rely i upon its virtues. i The Dill Medicine Company also pre > pares the famous Dill’s Cough Syrup— probably the best cough medicine that the country has yet seen and used. For > coughs, colds, sore throat, bronchitis, ; catarrh, and all diseases of the throat f and lungs, Dill’s Cough Syrup is the 3 one proved and accepted remedy in t homes from Portland, Ore., to Portland, i Maine. Mothers successfully fight those • scourges of childhood—croup and 3 whooping cough—with this simple rem edy, and keep it constantly at hand. d Another equally well-known product of 3 the Dill Laboratory is Dill’s Little Liver Pills, for the relief of constipation, indi s gestion, biliousness, headache, etc. Un , told numbers owe relief from hours of s suffering to the use of these effective 1 little pills. Many are never without e them, as a regulator and preserver of . normal, healthy action of the stomach 1 and bowels. Dill’s Worm Syrup is I scarcely less known than the prepara e tions already mentioned, and when all other agencies have failed, in this pain- II ful and unpleasant ailment, Dill’s Worm i Syrup has proved effectual. It is a s really remarkable remedy. Dill’s Blood and Nerve Tonic is also fast forging its 1 way to the front as a genuine restorer of b vital energy, and an all round health improving, life-giving tonic. Alto i gether the Dill Medicine Company’s products are among the few really valu a, able proprietary medicines, and are de servedly popular. John Ternent, of Lonaconing, repre sents the Company in this vicinity, and will be pleased to take your orders and supply the remedies at any time. HENRY P. COOK, Manager. "Whole Number, Republican Primary. Unusual interest was manifested all day, especially by the candidates in get ting voters to the polls, and thus polling the largest of votes in the history of Frostburg primaries—817. Following is the report: For Mayor John J. Price 449 Henry J. Powell 316 For Councilmen Edward Dufty 399 William A.

For Policemen —William Warn, William Bone. Messrs. Price, Warn and Bone are in cumbents. The nomination of Mr. Price is com plimentary to him. It is his party’s plea for a third term for him, and so far a majority endorsement of his record. Town Registration. Messrs. John H. Footen, E. Cloyd Evans, officers of registration, concluded their work for this year Monday even ing. Results as follows: Names newly registered in Ward No. 1.. 95 “ “ “ “ “ “ 2.. 84 Total newly registered this year 179 Names stricken off —Ward No. 1 23 “ “ “ “ “ 2 22 Total stricken off this year 45 Gain 134 Total registration last year 1,390 “ “ this “ 1,524 ■- ■ ■ Over SIOO,OOO. A total of 73,101 letters went to the Dead-Letter Office last year enclosing money in aggregate amount of $64,303, were unclaimed and the revenue derived from dead mail matter, including post age stamps removed from letters and found loose in the mails which could not be returned to owners, aggregated $36,000. If any of that money was sent to the Journal for subscriptions the writers will see that they erred in the method of transmission. Money orders or registered letters make the Journal a sure thing for the current and next year. Back To The City. A city chap weut to work for a farmer out in one of the western counties of Kansas recently. At 3 o’clock the next morning the farmer called him to begin the day’s labors. A few minutes later the young man came out of the bedroom carrying his grip. “You ain’t a-goin’ to take that grip with you to work, air you?” asked the farmer. “Naw,” answered the man with a fine scorn, “but I'm goin’ to find some place to stay all night!” Forest Fires In Maryland In 1910. Reports from Forest Wardens for fourteen counties of the State, including Allegany, Baltimore, Carroll, Cecil, Charles, Frederick, Garrett, Harford, Howard, Montgomery, Prince George’s, St. Mary’s, Washington and Worcester, have been compiled by the State Forester. In the counties named there were 65 fires, which burned over 17,536 acres of ' woodland, causing an estimated damage of $96,294. About half of these fires were extin : guished by the Forest Wardens, and . their assistants, at a cost of $181.50. The others were either extinguished by ! the landowners, or allowed to burn out. 1 Thirteen of the 65 fires were started ■ from unknown causes; of the 62 that . started from known causes, 23 were ■ caused by burning sedge-fields, brush, • etc; 20 were started by railroads; 4 by ■ hunters; 2by mischievous boys; Iby a • traction-engine; Iby a saw-mill, and 1 : was reported as incendiary. > It is strikingly shown that the two ; common causes of forest fires in the ! State are brush-burning, which resulted l in 44 of the fires, and railroads, includ > ing logging locomotives, etc. In the other counties of the State, not 1 reporting, there were fewer forest fires, - but as there are no forest wardens there i is lack of definite information. i It is probable that the total record for l the State would not be less than 20,000 s acres burned over, with an approximate E damage of SIOO,OOO. By far the most destructive forest fire - was in St. Mary’s county in April, 1910, 3 when nearly 9,000 acres were burned - over, causing a loss, including buildings, -of over $50,000. In the other counties of the State, - with the exception of Garrett, Howard, i Montgomery, Prince George’s and Wor -1 cester, the fire damage for 1910 was less ' than that for 1909.
