<a Jesus said to His disciples—“Go and preach jjJJI
VI The Gospel to all creatures, and to each jTO
Of them, where’er you find them, do ye break
, The Bread of Life, that each one may partake.
And do ye go to every land and tribe,
m w And as ye go about all praise ascribe
0 To Him Who sends you forth, and in His Name
0 Restore the blind and heal the sick and lame.
Vi “Beloved, I must leave you, but I send /BJI
VI To you another Comforter and Friend —
0 The Holy Ghost shall come and dwell within
mm Your hearts and help to keep you free from sin. J.
/Jr" It’s peace and blessing shall on you be laid ;
NP Let not your hearts be troubled or afraid ; WS
Ye shall abide in Me, and I in j'ou—
tt What ye shall ask in My Name will I do.”
Then as the Day' of Pentecost drew nigh
VI They waited for this blessing from on high,
H And met, with one accord, within a place
Mm To there receive this power through His grace ;
J J And, suddenly, from Heaven there came a sound
** As of a mighty wind —and all around,
V Where the disciples sat, the room was filled
VI With God’s own Spirit, and each voice was stilled.
0 Then appeared unto them cloven tongues of flame,
{J j! Which sat upon their heads till all became
VI Filled with the Holy Ghost, and were amazed jgn
V To find that as they now their voices raised, jk
mm They spake in many tongues before unheard— 2?
X That they might spread abroad His Holy Word
Into the lands where Christ was yet unknown,
And tell the wonders which His love had shown. /JJj!

At the evening meal a Cumberland

prophecies, especially as applying to
Canada. A little girl at the table 1
manifested so much interest that she

readily; “it is right above the via
duct !”
A mail named Hampton, living in
Luray, Page county, Va., reported as 1
owning a Bible, printed in Strasburg,
Germany, in 1615. He said that it had
been hidden in the trunk of a hollow
tree during the “Thirty Years War,”
and that the stains on the edges of
many of the leaves had resulted from
moisture gathered from its hiding
place.

Care of State Roads.
“Treat the State-built roads kind
• ly,” is the plea made by Governor
. Crothers. “These roads,” continued
’ the Governor,” will not stand a plow,
or a traction engine, or similar vehi
cles. No road will stand them. We,
' therefore, urge farmers not to drag
plows over them as far as possible.
■ In most cases there is abundant space
, on the roadside for plows and traction
- engines.” A good suggestion from
■ the best good-roads Governor Mary
land ever had.

Political.
The Cumberland American said last
week—
The underground wires are al
ready at work for the coming cam
paign. It is reported that at a
conference held here this week
Dr. Timothy Griffith, of Frostburg,
was selected as the candidate to
oppose Mr. John L. Wellington
for county treasurer. Thus the
fight goes on.
Seems Strange.
The Greensburg (Pa.) Argus says
“the Jeanette High School is having
its troubles. A number of applicants
for graduation were turned down and
a strike is threatened. It is not
thought the constabulary will be
called out, but a spanking is due and
badly needed.” That situation could
hardly be different in any school
wherein “graduate” is an office or an
honor that must be applied for.
Contingencies.
Reader, does it ever occur to
you that the most interesting
items of news are the ones that
we never see in print?—Cumber
land American.
Concerning “the most interesting
items of news” there is a difference of
opinion.
In the Journal’s humble judge
ment, the marriage of two nice young
people is “the most interesting item,”
and it is one the Journal never miss
es. unless—
1, The contracting parties inveigh
the minister into keeping quiet, or —
2, It turns out that, though an “in
teresting item of news,” it never hap
pened.
A Big Evetit.
The Free Masons of Allegany and
Garrett counties will meet in Cumber
land next Tuesday, 6th inst., and, un
der auspices of the State Grand Lodge

Master, aided by other Grand Officers

Right Eminent Commander of Knights
Templar of the State, will have com
mand of the parade features.
The lodges which constitute the

Antioch Commandery, Knights
Templar, of Cumberland; —
Beausant Commandery, of Balti

Potomac Lodge, Free Masons, of
Cumberland; —
Ohr Lodge, of Cumberland; —

’ The Oaklank (Md.) Journal tells the
1 people of its community—
-1 Clean up the yards about the
home, whitewash or paint all out
buildings and the fences, plant
flowers and sow grass seed and
thereby make the home pretty to
look upon, as well as more health
ful for your occupancy and pleas
ant for the community at large.
This will create a civic pride in any
community, even though it may
be an unconscious realization of
the fact. Spring time is cleaning
up time, and this applies to the
> homes in the country as well as
the homes in the town. Let every
body clean up.
Would Be a Big Thing.
The people of Keyser, W. Va., want
the Cumberland and Westernport Elec
tric Railway Company to extend its
line to their town—a distance of five
miles. It is a reasonable wish. With
a belt line taking in the tri-towns and
the one due to Frostburg, the C. and
W. F. R. would be the “dandiest” big
’ passenger and small freight carrier in
America’s greatest diggings.
Here to See for Themselves.
Messrs. G. W. Rutherford, foreign
representative of the Consolidation
Coal Company, with headquarters in
( London, and H. A. Damche, of the
New York office of the company,
representing New Jersey territory,
were here last Friday and Saturday
looking into mining conditions, qual
ity of coal, etc.
Their methods of investigation are
1 very exhaustive, and it is believed
■ they went away very favorably im
- pressed.
They had been to the Fairmont (W.
. Va.) region, and from here they went
to Somerset, Pa.

)
In looking over the Beall High
f School display last week the Jour
nal’s representative, in omitting the
. names of Miss Hanson, second grade;
Miss Garrett, fourth; Misses McAllis
ter and Davis, fifth grade, had no in
* tention of ignoring their work, con
sisting of weaving, crocheting, hem
stitched aprons, hand-bags, knit slip
pers, and beautifully-adorned hand
made cushions. Unlike the displays
elsewhere, however, these ladies’
names did not appear in connection
therewith. Hence, they were dis
posed of as follows :
On entering the Journal, was
taken into one of the class-rooms
on the first floor, where all the
work of the High School depart
s ment was on display, consisting
l of knitting, basket-weaving, cro
s cheting, cushions, aprons, hats
1 and a number of articles too nu
t merous to mention. The work
e shows skilled training.
1 It was an error, probably, to report
1 this work as “of the High School De
-1 partment,” yet that it was so regarded
1 and stated is a compliment to the
teachers named and their pupils.

TO ULLAINEE
On the Ninth Anniversary of Her
Birthday.
M. A. Chambers.
Bordering’ now on maidenhood,
Fond daughter fair, and mild, and
good ;
: It is meet that now your parents
should
Increasing efforts show—
To guide your budding thoughts
aright—
■ To shun the false -and choose the
right—
To keep your mind from speck of
blight,
And thus we’d have you grow.
We’d have you modest —not too gay—
Fresh and sweet as flowers of May;—
Gentle, mild, and discreet alway,
Nor show impatience ever.
We’d have you use your eyes and
ears,
So you’ll not cause us sighs nor tears,
Nor sorrow bring in later years
To hearts that would not waver.
We’d have you keep your budding
heart
From taint of evil thoughts apart,
Nor even from the truth depart
While life remains to you.
Avoid whatever sanctions wrong ;
Move carefully life’s course along;
Temptations are conceal’d among
Some pleasures fair to view.
************
And when Memory returns to
occasions like this
In the years still allotted to me,
I, in fancy, will see my Babe at my
knee —
My own heart, my fair Ullainee !
From experience always is wisdom
acquired;
You will then know the false from
the true ;
Return to these lines —they will
encourage at times
When the moments seem darkest to
you.
Life’s summits, like mountains—they
sometimes seem bright,
While the valleys lie dark in
between ;
With patience and cheer again the
sun will apwear
And enmantle the valleys in green.
And the daisies will blossom—that
never could bear
Our luminary’s dazzling ray ;
And the hawthorn’s bloom, with
sweetest perfume,
Will cheer up life’s valleys in May.
Warrington, Fla.. May 21, 1911.
Coincidence.
Tuesday morning George A. Kean,
of Cumberland, named Mayor George
G. Y oung, of same city, as the State’s
ideal man for Governor, using the
Baltimore Sun as his medium, and
Tuesday afternoon one of the “pic
tures” the Sun wanted to see was
that of —
A Governor elected with the
good qualities of Crothers, Lee,
Gorman and Brown combined—
and none of their bad ones.
Won the Piano.
Mrs. Albert Kenneweg, of Cumber
land, won the $350 piano offered for
the most artistic re-arrangement of
the miniature map of a portion of
Cumberland, advertised in Journal.
The gold watch, $l5O, was won by
George F. Johnson, of Cumberland.
The lady’s gold watch $125, was won
by Miss Minnie Little, also of Cum
berland.
Scholastic Promotion.
Prof. Edmund Dandridge Mur
daugh, former principal of State Nor
mal School, this place, later president
of the faculty of State University
School, Claremore, Oklahoma, has
been elected President of the State
. Normal School at Durant, same State
—an institution employing 35 teachers
and averaging an attendance of over
1,000. The promotion is one of con
. siderable importance, bringing to the
Professor duties of wider and higher
range and a material increase of pay.
It takes him, too, from a town to a
city of 8,000 people—a centre of cul
ture and refinement. Prof. Murdaugh
had not aspired to the office; it came
as an offer to him after unanimous
election by the regents.
