An item, incorrectly printed a few weeks ago, should have read—James W. Lewis, of Welsh Hill, this place, is an avowed candidate for the repub lican nomination for Sheriff. The Journal erred last week in stating the name of the firm who suc ceeds Mayor John J. Price in the grocery business—corner Charles street and Broadway. Should be Morgan Brothers, instead of “Thomas H. Morgan & Sons'” No Concession. The Journal asked Walter F. De- Neen, just returned from his wedding tour— “ Did you witness any moving-pic ture shows?” “Yes; saw them all.” “Being just married, did they charge you for admission ?” “Yes; they made me pay double!” “The Star Spangled Banner.” Next Wednesday, 14th inst., 134 3 r ears ago, Congress ordered the figure of “the British union” stricken from the Americrn flag and replaced by “Thirteen Stars,” and less than three months later it first figured in battle at Brandywine, September 11, 1777. The Americans lost the battle, but the British lost most men. Get Out of Te Way.

The Pittsburg Plau. “Cities are an immense power for good and for evil. Any State that has large cities within its borders is very apt to be ruled by its cities. If the cities are politically and socially corrupt they are very likely to corrupt the entire State. Pennsylvania is ruled to a large extent by Pittsburg and Philadelphia, and these cities are somewhat noted for their political corruption. The vast majority of the citizens of these large municipalities are upright and pure. But the hold which politicians have on them is very hard to break. In Pittsburg the charter is a hindrance to the purifica tion of its government. Consequent ly, many of its good men are putting forth efforts to have charter so amend ed as to open the way for municipal reforms. The purpose of the move ment is to restore the government of the city to the people. The ministers of the various churches, several civic organizations and many of the leading men are working hard to have the necessary legislation enacted at Har risburg, looking toward the desired reformation. If the inland members will stand by the men who are strug gling to be delivered from the power of the grafter and the briber they will succeed in their efforts, but if they will support the politicians these men who have nothing in view save the welfare of the people will fail in their present efforts. All good Christian men ought to support “The Pittsburg Plan.” The foregoing is clipped from a Pennsylvania paper of recent date. In Maryland Baltimore is clamoring for precisely the control of the State from which in Pennsylvania the people are trying to emancipate themselves. The dominant question soon will be— Will the people of the counties en- I slave themselves to Baltimore? Wiiy Women Suffer. Many Frostburg- Women Are Learning the Care. Women often suffer, not knowing the cause. Backache, headache, dizziness, ner vousness. Irregular urinary passages, weak ness, languor— Each a seeming torture of itself, Together tell of weakened kidneys. Strike at the root —get to the cause. Quickly give the help the kidneys need. No remedy endorsed like Doan’s Kidney Pills. Recommended by thousands— Endorsed at home. Here’s convincing proof from a Frostburg citizen. Mrs. William Preston, 77 West Eoo street, Frostburg, Md., says: “The first symptom of kidney complaint in my case was backache, then the kid ney secretions became unnatural and annoyed me greatly. Being advised to try Doan’s Kidney Pills, I did so and they disposed of my trouble. I recommended this remedy highly and can say that it lives up to all claims made for it.” For sale by all dealers. Price SO cents. Foster-Milburn Co., Buffalo, New York, sole agents for the United States. Remember the name—Doan’s—and take no other. Legal Definition. A story which the Independent cred its to Mr. Roosevelt, describes very neatly the experience a good many clients have with the sort of lawyers who, like Dodson & Fogg, take cases “on spec. ” An injured miner told a friend that a certain lawyer was bringing a suit for him on a “contingent fee.” “What is a contingent fee —do you know, Jimmie?” he asked the friend. “Sure I know,” replied Jimmie. “If you lose your case, the lawyer gets nothing; if you win it, you get nothing. ” Removal. Mrs. Elizabeth Welfly and daugh ter—Miss Ida, have removed from this place to Salisbury, Pa., where they have secured a home. The re moval of Mr. Mr. and Mrs. L. F. Fersner to Akron, 0., broke their at tachment to Frostburg, as Mrs. Fers ner is also Mrs. Welfley’s daughter. Mrs. Welfley is the widow of the late Hon. B. Welfley, of Garrett county, member of the Maryland State Senate one term. Baltimore & Ohio Excursion Sunday, June 11 and 25. |2 to Washington and return. $2.50 to Baltimore and return. |1.25 to Berkeley Springs and return. Special train leaves Cumberland at 7 a. m. Not a Word. Council was in session nearly 4)4 hours Monday evening and talked about a good many matters of current importance, but not a word was said of the expensive projection of the water across Great Savage—not a word about the proposition to utilize gravity on this side to generate elec tricity for raising water on the other— a plan at least 25 times cheaper than boring a tunnel through Great Sav age, and 50 times cheaper than the current method of pumping. In the Journal’s humble judgment 'herein resides in dormant state the greatest stroke of economy this town can achieve! Question in Philosophy. A dispatch from Eonaconing states that— The George’s Creek Coal Com pany, at its mines at Eonaconing, is putting in an extensive electric motor haulage system to bring out the loaded cars and take into the mines the empties, doing away with the old cable haulage. If electricity can be utilized for heavy haulage purposes, why not for the lighter elevation of water? Not In It. They are clamoring for a free press in Mexico. Naturally—it’s the first bulwark of liberty Cum berland News. In Cumberland —sure ! When it comes to county election advertising outside of Cumberland neither Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence, National nor State Constitution, nor statutory law recog nizes it as the second, nor even the third “bulwark of liberty.” The effect of the law is—there must be no press in the county, slave or free, outside of Cumberland ! Coming Events. William C. Morgan announces a monster class initiation of the Junior Order United American Mechanics of this county, to be held in this place Tuesday,'' November 14, this year. Special trains will be run both ways over the C. & P. R., and teams from Valley Council, No. 26, of Eonacon ing, and Queen City Council, No. 49, of Cumberland, will do the work. The Committee aims to obtain 500 new members for the Order in this county. The 19th Annual Sunday School Convention of Somerset Classis of the Reformed Church will be held in the Reformed Church, Salisbury, Pa., Tuesday and Wednesday, 20th and 21st inst’s. Rev. George E. Metger, of this place, is president, and at the evening session will de liver an address upon “Developing j the Boy.” At the same session Miss Inez Spitznas, also of this place, will I read a paper upon “Teaching Eittle I Children.” Political. George Thomas, of Wood street, is a candidate for the republican nomi nation for Road Director. “Is in the field,” he says, “at the instance of many friends.” Frank J. McMahon, of Cumberland, was here Wednesday conferring with prominent politicians—giving and taking views. _He advised John Brady and others strenuously against committing themselves just yet to anybody for the governorship.

At the family residence, Fast Union street, 4 o’clock Tuesday afternoon, June 6, 1911, by Rev. B. F. Bray, Miss Annie Edythe Williams, of this place, to Mr. P. Clarence Barnes, of Cum berland. Only the immediate mem bers of the two families represented were present, and shortly after the ceremony Mr. and Mrs. Barnes left for a tour of the north and east. Re turned, they will “be at home after June 20th, 62 Fayette street, Cumber land, Md.” The bride, a daughter of Mrs. Henry Williams, is one of Frost burg’s most amiable and popular young ladies, and the fortunate groom is a prominent and prospering mem ber of the'Allegany-County Bar. At the parsonage of St. Paul’s Lu theran Church Tuesday evening, June 6, 1911, by Rev. F. H. Crissman, Miss Elizabeth Kelso to Mr. Alfred Hunter, both of this place. From the wedding ceremony the couple went direct to house-keeping in a residence on Warn Lane —the highway which links Grahamton with Frostburg. A Big Day. The Order of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons enlivened Cumber land considerably on Tuesday. Marred only by the rain, the demon stration was an immense success. Two corner-stones were laid —the new Masonic Temple and that of the new City Hall, each with impressive ceremony. The day’s proceedings closed with a banquet in Footer’s j Hall, at which 700 Masons sat, ate and heard eloquent addresses by vis- I iting and home members of the Order. The Sick. David Griffith, of Bowery street, is recovering from a siege of quinsy. William R. Gunter, landlord of Hotel Gladstone, underwent slight surgical treatment last Saturday, and, though confined to his rooms, is recovering. “Breezy Point.” That was really a fine entertain ment that Mrs. Clara Pyle Ewing, of the State Normal School faculty, put on the stage Friday evening of last week. Aided by twelve accomplished young ladies, “Breezy Point” was well-nigh a matter-of-fact reflection of human life and nature. Miss May Mays, as “A Sweet Old Lady,” was pretty; Miss Pa tience Williams, as “Eleanor Pearl,” was true to life; Miss Lela Taylor and Miss Nellie Dryer, competitors, ren dered difficult parts to professional perfection, and all the rest did well. Not the least of the entertaining features were the superb drills, measured by special orchestra music, closing with the “Delsarte” —all com plicated, but graceful and pretty, The Opera House was crowded to the limit. He Would Like to Join. A prominent citizen wants to join The Civic Club, if eligible. He believes that so far as it goes it is a good institution, and would b'e better if it would go further. He thinks its platform for sanitary and civic betterment should be broad ened to include— 1, A town-wide, complete sewage system. So far as the popular health is pro moted, a partial system is equal to no system. The atmosphere cannot be cleansed by fractions or by instalments. With the installation of the sewage system he would tirge the removal of all out-houses whose use the system is designed to abolish. 2, He would eliminate dog culture in town for a number of good reasons, patent to all, and— 3, He . would exclude cattle from town altogether. He would not allow them to be driven through town, no matter how well guarded. He would have all pasturing, feed ing and milking done outside corpor ate limits. With both dogs and cattle alienated, there would be no need of fences, and the ideal town is the town without a fence. These may seem extreme require ments, but if the Civic Club really means business, they are indispensable to the best and highest communal good. In this event, the prominent citizen would like to join—if eligible, and do all he can to help in promoting one of the best of all human reforms.
