J. HENSON ODE It, Editor. FROSTBURG, MD. - JUNE 10, 1911. “COME TO THE SCRATCH.” “Why make a fuss about the county paying Cumberland city election ex penses?” asks a Cumberland sub scriber. The Journal’s answer may may be gleaned from a paragraph clipped from a recent issue of the Nation-. The saving of $200,000 in the an nual pay-roll of the House may not be in itself a matter of tremend ous importance to the Treasury of the United States, but the princi ple and spirit indicated in it are of the most vital importance. And that is not all. How much less objectionable are “the principle and spirit” of a county election law which was amended sev eral years ago to prohibit election ad vertising in newspapers outside of Cumberland? The Journal would like all candi dates for County Commissioner and House of Delngates to state their atti tude toward propositions — 1, To repeal'of the law in the first instance, and —- 2, To re-amendment of the second back to common sense and justice. Both “the principle and spirit” of these requests are of “vital import ance to the survival of the right. Business Movements. The new restaurant, opposite the First National Bank —Mrs. Ida V. Mc- Fuckie, will be opened today (Satur day.) Mrs. McFuckie is equipped for first-class trade. A Compressed-Air Fatality. William Budnoy, of Poland, aged 21 years, died Wednesday near Salis bury, Pa., from compressed air, under which, it is said, diggers in the Big Savage tunnel of the new railroad have to work. The remains were brought here and placed in charge of Jacob Hafer. A sister and brother, of Brooklyn, N. Y., reached here Wed nesday evening, viewed and recog nized the body, but declined to incur expense of burial, claiming that the contracting company should be re sponsible. The matter was referred to the company, who finally conceded the claim, and the remains were ac cordingly interred in-the Percy ceme tery yesterday (Friday) afternoon. Just iu Time. A Frostburg gentleman, driving down West Union street Thursday evening, stopped without hitching in the crowd waiting for the Fonaconing cars. While he was inside one of the doors attending to business the horse, becoming alarmed, started to run. Had he succeeded in getting away, somebody would have been hurt, him self crippled, or a buggy wrecked, or all three. But there was a handsome young man in the throng, who, in stantly comprehending the situation, rushed out, grasped the line, stopped the animal at the climacteric moment. One second later and he would have been too late. His name is Benjamin Thomas, residing on Wood street, and to him somebody owes gratitude for escape from loss, or hurt, perhaps of death. She, him, or them being un known, the Journal saddles the debt upon the community. The Christian Sabbath. The following paper, unanimously adopted and self-explanatory, indi cates the position of one great relig ious organization on a much-mooted question: WHEREAS, The Bible teaches the proper observance of the Sabbath, and—• Whereas, The Ford’s Daj' has been kept sacred by all true Christians from the time of the establishment of the Christian Church, and— Whereas, Christian sentiment has produced the enactment of laws by our Government for the proper ob servance of the Ford’s day, and—■ Whereas, We view with sorrow the tendency of our time to disregard the teaching of the Holy Scripture con cerning the Sabbath, and to permit, especially in' some localities, trade and labor, base-ball, excursions and various other amusements as being detrimental to the best interests of the people morally and physically, and contrary to the teaching of God’s Hol3’ Word, therefore— Be it Resolved, That we, the Fred erick District Preachers’ Meeting of the Methodist Episcopal Church, de plore the wide-spread desecration of the Ford’s Day; that we deeply regret the recent decision of fudge Henderson, permitting the continuance of labor by the Carter Construction Company on Sunday as being unjust to the laborers involved, and hurtful to the teaching of our churches; that we look upon all kinds of unnecessary labor, base-ball and other amusements on the Sabbath, as a menace to the welfare of our Nation; that we call upon our County Authorities to en force the Sabbath laws and pledge them our influence to that end; that we advise our preachers to preach sermons against Sabbath desecration, and urge the members of our church es to use their entire influence to pre serve the Christian Sabbath, and, fur ther— Be it Resolved, That these resolu tions be g'iven the greatest publicity by being read in the churches and published in the newspapers of the District. W. W. Van ArsdalE, President. Walter Stanley Jones, Secretary. | j~ BASE-BALL, ■j The National Game as Seen N .j From This Metropolis. N ■r f J J JJ J Games Frostburg went to Cumberland last Saturday and, as usual, lost 3 to 1. Salb saved the team from a shut-out by a knock over left-field fence in the 9th inning, with two out. The Cumberland M. A. C’s played here same afternoon with the White Sox and lost to latter by same score— -3 to 1. Fonaconing went to Piedmont same afternoon and the latter won —9 to 1. Next day Piedmont came up here and defeated the home team —5 to 4. The Allegany High School team, of Cumberland, played Beall High School a close game in the Park Thursday afternoon. The latter won —5 to 4. Hike Amateurs Some of the teams must have misunderstood the umpire when he said “Play Ball !”—Morgan town (W. Va.) New Dominion- News. Yes; two non-leaguers— 1, Cumberland—“Me,” and— 2, Fonaconing—“Too.” Questions Fooks like we have some base ball team in the Cumberland Athletic Club. Eh, Frostburg and Midland? —Cumberland News. Sure. But why were you afraid of the league ? Huh—Cumberland and Fonaconing ? Baseball certainly has the call around this neck of the woods Ibid. Yes, but it’s a low call. Only one for each game—none for a league score. Barton has two teams —“First” and “Metz.” They came together in a friendly clash Monday afternon and the “First” won by 7 to 4. The “Metz” team comprises nine brothers, whom it seems like “race suicide” to beat. Fightning Strokes The thunderbolt that struck a Fort Wayne (Ind.) church during service last Sunday, silenced the organ, put out the electric lights and stunned many of the congregation, performed an uncanny prank. But not more so than the bolt that in the afternoon of the same day killed a base-ball player on the ball-grounds at Norwalk, O. The lightning, like the dew from heaven, falls alike on the just and unjust.—New. York World. Coming Events A traveling aggregation styled “The Star Bloomer Girls,” will play the Frostburg team in the Park next Mon day afternoon, 12th inst. This nine is under management of Robert Halcott, and carries a band to whoop up busi ness. According to their manager, the girls are the “champs” of any fe male team in the country, young and good-looking, and the pitcher is en dowed with curving talent of high order. The only outlook for trouble is the difficulty of securing in Frost burg an umpire who would in the presence of other Frostburg chivalry, decide that a pretty woman is “out at first.” Two steps further—who is the pitcher that will throw to a pretty batter a difficult ball, or the catcher that will grab an easy foul? Brevities In the grand stand last Saturday Squire Jeffries, of Federal Hill, claimed to be the only guest of the day to whom the Park authorities had issued a rain-check. Fortunately, it didn’t rain—a circumstance which, according to the banking laws, inval idated the check. Bj r the way, just so that Ordinance can’t be twisted to apply to Olin Gun nett’s quid, all will be well. Brevities. A large number of Frostburg people were in Grantsville last Saturday at tending the funeral of Franklin B. Durst, the young man who died near that place of tuberculosis last week. Fact.

Coming Events. A “Flag Day” cantata will be pre sented by 75 young people and chil dren at the Congregational Church Wednesday evening, 14th inst. —a pa triotic exercise under direction of Mrs. J. B.

Mrs. Andrew Fox is having a neat front porch attached to her residence on Broadway. A Creditable Display. The G. E. Pearce Drug Company makes a praiseworthy concession to the teachers and pupils of Beall High School of one of its spacious front windows for the display of manual training accomplishments during the scholastic year just closing. Towel racks, book-racks, dictionary-stands and telegraphic equipment, substan tially built and neatly completed, con stitute the leading items, although many other articles of neat workman ship are shown. Prof. Gustav Fied holm is the tutor in this department and he is certainly a master in that line of tuition. In sewing, crochet and embroidery, the girls are but little in the rear of the boys iu the excellence and beauty of their accomplishments. Aprons, cushions and other articles of needle work are pretty testimonials to the en terprise of the teachers and the skill of the pupils. ■ “Cleati-Up” Still “In Order.” A correspondent, writing under aus pices of The Civic Club, addresses the people through the Journal concern ing a matter of general interest and importance : “Erostburg’s ‘Clean Up’ day had to be postponed on account of unfavor able weather, which, in all probability, is a good thing, for since the distri bution of posters asking all residents of town to remove all ash-piles, tin cans and rubbish, a great many peo ple have complied with the request. “But there is still room for improve ment in many yards, gardens and al leys, and in many instances one would think residents would have too much pride to have other people come to clean their rubbish away. “Instead of that, however, when asked—‘have you cleaned your 3 7 ard, etc. ? it is not a little surprising to have one reply—‘l have attended to that long ago. The Mayor and Coun cilmen and Civic Club need not come to my house.’ “The Health Board is very muoh gratified to see that nearly all the people are taking so much interest in this general clean-up, and when the Board makes its tour of inspection soon, it is hoped it will hav-e no com plaints to make. “There is no reason why the people of this town should not make Frost l burg one of the most healthful and beautiful in the State, and, by so do ing, attract home-seekers and eventu ally make it an ideal summer resort. “One more week will be given all residents to clean up, and if by that time the Health Board is notified of places that have not been cleaned, proper action will have to be taken compelling property-owners to do so. “We hope in the near future to have a free garbage s3 7 stem, which will eliminate the disease-carrying fly and all other harbingers and purveyors of ill health. “Instead of heaping up ash-piles, tin cans, etc., plant flowers and po tatoes, cultivate vegetables, and make 3’our grounds profitable and 3 7 our town beautiful.” FOR SALE 3 ♦ r DOUBLE BLOCK, io rooms, on Uhl Street, now renting for $lO per month, A J 000 - SIX-ROOM FRAME HOUSE, in good repair.

I In Trinity Catholic Church, Hunt , ingdon, Pa., 9 a. m. Monday, June 5, - 1911, by Rev. Jerome L. McQuillen, - Miss Julia Elizabeth Brown to Mr. 1 John Thomas Ryan, the latter of Pittsburg, Pa. The bride is one of the pretty daughters of Mr. and Mrs. P. H. Brown, of this place, and for - some time a guest of her brother — 5 Martin J. Brown, proprietor of the - Brunswick hotel, in Huntingdon. 1 She graduated several years ago from the State Normal School, this place, 3 and is an attractive, accomplished - young lady. The groom is an assist , ant engineer of the Department of - Mine Rescue Service in Pittsburg, 5 and a young man of much promise, l The Huntingdon New Era says — “The event was a truly festal one, and friends and invited guests of the - principals filled the church. The en - trance of the bridal party was made 1 to Lohengrin music. The bride was i tastefully gowned in a white serge 3 suit, carrying white roses. Her bridesmaid was her sister—Miss Bess i Helena Brown, who wore a pretty tan , serge suit and had a shower boquet of 3 pink roses. Both wore big picture 3 hats. The best man was J. Blaine - Snyder, a college chum of the groom 3 who came from New York for the ceremony. i “The miisic of the nuptial high 3 mass was one of the beautiful fea i tures. Leonard’s third mass was 3 used for the service, with Mrs. Anna. i Benkert presiding at the organ - throughout. The offertory solo was well sung by Miss Margaret Camp -3 bell, while the recessional march was 1 the Mendelssohn. 1 “The wedding breakfast, served in - elaborate style at the Brunswick ho - tel, followed, and at 1:48, Monday af ternoon, the newlyweds left for the 1 west. After June 15th they will be t at home to their friends at 6928 Ben f nett street, Last End, Pittsburg.” , Among the numerous guests of the l occasion were Mr. and Mrs,. William .
