A Helpful Suggestion.
“I tried to get a chance to speak to
you at church Sunday,” said Mrs. Old
castle, “but the crush was so great that
I couldn’t push through to where you
were.”
“Yes, wasn’t It awful?” replied her
hostess as she flicked a bit of dust
from the Gobelin tapestry. “All the
common folks in town seem to want
to crowd into our church lately. It’s
too bad they ain’t satisfied to stay
.Where they belong. How did you like
the sermon?”
"Well, as a sermon it was fairly
good, but I do wish Dr. Goodman
would quit splitting his infinitives. I
try not to let it make me nervous, but
I can’t keep from being shocked every
time he does it.”
“I never let them kind of things
bother me, but that’s where the Epis
copals have the advantage of us. If
our preacher would wear a long robe
he could split them and you’d never
notice it.”—Chicago Record-Herald.

Twenty million fire-crackers landed
in New York Wednesday—all for
Pittsburg. Nearly three millions were
left at Boston for that city—all direct
from Hong Kong. Frostburg, how
ever, will more likely buy from Pitts
burg than Boston—not a million, per
haps, but one package would be one
too many. At least, that seems to be
Civic-Club sentiment.
In the convention of State Firemen
at Lonaconing Walter W. Wittig, of
this place, called attention to the fact
that he is the first treasurer to receive
interest on the deposits of the asso
ciation, which interest is credited to
relief fund.
All the Firemen, Bandmen and visi
tors speak glowingly of the reception
and entertainment accorded them by
the Lonaconing people.
“The Bizzmarque Band” of about
20 youngsters in clown costumes from
this place made a big hit in the gro
tesque Lonaconing parade Thursday
evening. The boys say, however, that
some of their fun was spoiled by en
vious interference of real bandsters.
Including the 32 members of the
Arion Band, Frostburg contributed
nearly 100 marchers to the great Ma
sonic turn-out in Cumberland Tues
day. The threatening rain kept
others from going.
A party of six residents of Salis

Good Roads.
G. Clinton Uhl, of Mount Savage,
president of the Board of Road Direc
tors of Allegany county; W. E. G.
| Hitchins and George Stern went to
Baltimore Tuesday to see President j
Tucker, of the State Roads Commis
j sion, on the National Pike re-building
[ enterprise. They expected to meet
also representatives of the Hassam
Paving Company, of Worcester, Mass.
Hon. D. J. Lewis, Congressman,
joined them in Washington.
When they reached Baltimore, how
ever, the Paving Company’s represen
tative had not arrived, and, owing to
a railway mishap, was reported sev
eral hours late.
Mr. Tucker assured the gentlemen
that the State would next week begin
the re-construction of the 4.18 mile
stretch to Piney Grove.
Messrs. Hitchins, Stern and Uhl re
turned Wednesday evening, leaving
Baltimore ere the Hassam man ar
rived, but they let Mr. Tucker under
stand that they preferred the work
done under contract than under State
auspices, the former plan promising
more expedition.
Mr. Tucker told them that in the
latter event he would send a corps of
colored men who are experts in stone
work and put all the labor available
on the job and rush it through.
The Baltimore News, speaking of
one of the obstacles, says —
“It is found difficult to get contrac
tors to consider this piece of highway,
owing to its being it the mountains
where labor is scarce and where quar
ters have to be provided for the work
• men.”
The Buyers’ Creed.
A trade paper, entitled the Trades
man, recently published a statement
i of reasons why a resident should buy
1 in his home town.
: They seem so good that the Jour
; nai, deems them worthy of reproduc
tion for the benefit of home trade in
■ the home town of Frostburg.
i Adopting the first person singular,
the citizen, especially if he maintains
; and enjoys the commercial credit to
which good people are entitled, says :
. I BUY AT HOME
i Because my interests are here,
i Because I want to see the
i goods.
Because the man I buy from
stands back of the goods.
' Because I want to get what I
: buy when I pay for it.
Because the man I buy from
gives value received always.
Because my home dealer “car
ries” me when I am run short.
Because I believe in transact
ing business with my friends.
Because the man I buy from
pays his share of the town and
county taxes.
Because everj’- dollar I spend at
home stays at home and helps
work for the welfare of the town.
Because the community that is
good enough for me to live in is
most certainly good enough for
me to buy in.
Ten reasons in all—not “Ten Com
, mandments,” but ten practical reasons
for obeying what should be one prac
. tical commandment — buy at home, all
good enough for the Board of Trade
to adopt, print on cards and post in
every business place in town.
Died.
At his home on McCulloh street,
this place, Monday morning, June 5,
: 1911, Mr. John H. Footen, aged 59
years. Wife, several daughters and
sons are bereaved. A victim of
: miners’ asthma, he had also been a
cripple from a mining accident many
■ years. He had held several offices
. under State, county and town, was
; attentive to duty, and stood well in
popular estimation. Funeral at St.
Michael’s Church Wednesday morn
! ing, followed by interment in St.
Michael’s cemetery.
Found Dead.
i Sometime during Friday afternoon
of last week the body of Harry L. Ole
l wine, station agent of the George’s
i Creek and Cumberland Railroad at
: Lonaconing, was found lifeless in his
: office at that place.
The stove was overturned and furn
, iture displaced, indicating that a
i struggle had taken place, but some
l other collateral circumstances induce
many people to believe that he com
; mitted suicide.
A coroner’s jury Saturday afternoon
, found a verdict which covered both
i probabilities.
Several pistol-shots had been fired,
- the fatal one taking effect just above
■ the heart.
Business Movements.
* The shirt-waist factory at Midland

building is nearly completed and the
machinery is at hand ready for in

t
Charles Zinkan and family have re
moved from this place to Harrison

Zinkan, of this place, and a young
j man with a future full of business
promise.
Richard Griffith, of this place, has
gone to Oil City, Oklahoma, to see
some real estate he owns in that
section.
F. J. Rogan, the well-known and

f • Hafer for several years, has resigned |
' and gone to Baltimore to take an offic
j ial position under State auspices.
He is a competent, clever man.

Wins Fight For Life.
It was a long and bloody battle for
life that was waged by James B. Mer
shon, of Newark, N. J., of which he
writes: “I had lost much blood from
lung hemorrhages, and was very weak
and run-down. For eight months I
was unable to work. Death seemed
close on my heels, when I began,
three weeks ago, to use Dr. King’s
New Discovery. But it has helped
me greatly. It is doing all that you
claim.” For weak, sore lungs, obsti
nate coughs, stubborn colds, hoarse
ness, la grippe, asthma, hay-fever or
any throat or lung trouble it’s supreme.

Is one who is lovely in face, form,

woman to be charming without health.
A weak, sickly woman will be nerv

wretched complexion. But Electric

My Heart’s Desire.
O, God !—Thou who dost see my
inmost heart
And knowest all the things which I
require,
And dost so freely of Thy Grace
impart—
Wilt Thou not give to me my heart’s
desire ?
It is no vain thing, Father, that I
ask—
But what to me would be a priceless
boon—
The gain of which has seemed a
hopeless task,
And O, I pray, dear God, send Thou
it soon —
Lest through this yearning pain my
heart should break
Beneath the load which weighs it
down each day,
As hour by hour I my petition make —
Hear me ! hear me, O God, nor say
me nay!
I dare not name my wish to Thee
aloud,
Lest others learn of what I am
bereft,
For though all else were gone, I’d be
so proud
And count it naught—if only this
were left !
Father, I know Thou seest when I
kneel —
Thou who dost hear my prayer and
never tire —
Wilt Thou not heed in mercy my
appeal,
And give me— O give me my heart's
desire !

All Sorts of a Letter.
New York City, June 7, 1911.
To the Mining Journai,.
I probably know as much about
State government as Port Shaffer
knows about baking pretzels, or as does
George J. Wittig about millinery.
I do not expect to ever know any
more about it unless the subject is
made more captivating by, for in
stance, electing Ty Cobb governor,
and “Mooney” Gunnett Secretary of
State, which possibility seems rather
remote, inasmuch as they will both
probably stick to the honest game.
However, last week’s Journal’s ar
ticle on “Our Subject State,” quoting
New York Governor Dix’s speech on
“The City Efficient,” impels me to ob
serve that it will not conduce to the wel
fare of Maryland’s State government
to imbibe New York politics and to
quaff too gullibly the “what ought to
be” speeches of aNew York Governor.
Most any governor knows what
ought to be, but his hands are tied.
That’s why he is governor.
Li Hung Chang once said of the
late ex-president Cleveland—“ He’s a
great man--around the waist.”
While literally true, this was an un
just reflection upon one of our most
loved and illustrious presidents. It
may or may not have been said in a
jest (Chinese puzzle;) still, it had its
sting, which was all the more keenly
felt because, although unjustified in
this particular case, it was only the
truth mis-directed—a bomb that might
have fallen a few feet in any direction
and struck a nail on the head.
I have never had the pleasure of
seeing governor Dix, but I have never
heard he was off his feed.
Was it Jim Ratigan or Bill Shake
speare who said of Kear Cassius Hos
ken—“Cassius has a lean and hungry
| look; he thinks too much; such men
are dangerous?”
Well, no matter who said it—Cas
sius never had anything on Charlie
Murphy when it came to thinking,
and, while Charlie is a good feeder
(he looks it,) a full stomach doesn’t
appease his hunger when there are
j any nice, large, juicy melons to be cut.
And, too, Charlie has a host of rela-
I fives to look after—and he does it.
What’s the answer?
Why, let us rise, en masse, and with
one fell swoop cut down the tyrant
bosses--ifc semper tyrannis!
O, piffle! (meaning', I decline) that’s
the disease that killed our fathers.
Let’s stick to the national game.
“Mooney” to the bat!
Quid from haw to gee !

The Ladles Want a Sane and Safe
Fourth.
An Appeal to All
The following paper speaks for
itself:
The Civic Club appeals to the
people for a “Sane and Safe” ob
servance of the 4th of July—this
in the interest of public comfort
and public security.
We could wish —
1, That merchants would not
purchase stocks of noisy and
dangerous fire-works; —
2, That parents would dissuade
their children from buying, and
exploding them—frequently upon
neighboring premises, and—
3, And that the people general
ly would unite in vigorous dis
couragement of demonstrations
which make a day that should be 1
profoundly revered by all one of
positive dread to a great many of
their number.
In this behalf our first request
to sellers and last request to buy
ers is—
Let Us Have a Sane and Safe
Fourth of July.
The Civic Club.
