Oder, Representing D. P. MILLER <fe CO., Mining Journal Office, 82 East Union St., March 26] FROSTBURG, MD. AN INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPER. TO BEULAH . On Her Fifteenth Birthday, July 15, 1911. ’Tis fifteen years since first you came, dear heart! How long those years, and yet they seem so short, Since in the rapture of that summer morn I held you in my arms, my babe just born. And as your head lay pillowed near my heart, A prayer went up that we might never part; But near me through the years that you might stay Till God should call the one of us away. And may the Lord now keep you undefiled — Pure as the day you came, a little child! May nothing mar your innocence and youth, And may you walk within the paths of truth! And O, dear little girl of fifteen years — May happiness be yours! no pain nor tears To mar your pleasure! And may joy and mirth Be yours upon this day which gave you birth! Sara Roberta Getty. 1881 1911 H f THIRTY YEARS AGO. f The Items Below Were Current During Week Ending July 23, 1881. Archibald Thompson was instantly killed in the “New ’Coney Mine” Sat urday, July 16, 1881. He was a hard working, sober, industrious man—in every respect a good citizen, and much sympathy was felt for his widow and six helpless children. Within two weeks 24 boys died in Baltimore of lock-jaw—a disease con tracted from the use of toy pistols on the 4th. Gov. Foster, of Ohio, contemplated recommending to the State governors that October 19th, 1881, the 100th an niversary of the Yorktown surrender, be fixed as a day of thanksgiving for the restoration of President Garfield to health. Spring chickens—scarce. Mumps prevailing on Welsh Hill. New school-house Hill street, near Bowery', going up. Rev. Hr. J. G. Butler announced to preach at dedication services in Ger man Lutheran Church Sunday morn ing, July 24, 1881; Rev. John Ruhl, of the Reformed Church, during after noon, and Rev. A. Homrighaus, pas tor, at the evening hour. Wednesday, July 20, Frostburg played at Borden Shaft. The latter won —49 to 20. Sunday, July 17, 1881, Miss Sarah E. Kenoyer was married to Mr. Elijah Skidmore, both of this place, by Rev. J. P. Wilson. Wednesday, July 20, 1881, Miss Amanda Brown was married to Mr. Moses Ross, both of this county, by Rev. J. P. Wilson. Thursday, July 21, 1881, Miss Leah E. Yates was married to Mr. Thomas Gunter, both of Grahamton, by Rev. Mr. Jones. J. William Shuck, republican, and John G. Bauer, democrat, both of Cumberland, reported as aspiring to Sheriffalty. The latter was an ex- Sheriff. President Garfield improving. Names of 25 summer guests report ed as registered at Beall’s Mont View Cottages. George E. Bartholomew, wife and children, of Baltimore, registered for the summer at the St. Cloud Hotel. George E-, representing Gail & Ax, tobacconists, of Baltimore, was known as “The Little Joker.” How the Law is Enforced. “The Free Lance,” Baltimore Even ing Sun, quotes— “ From the Sixth Article of the Con stitution of the United States: In all criminal prosecutions the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial by an im partial jury of the State and dis trict wherein the crime shall have been committed. [Laughter.\ “From the Fifth and Twenty-first Articles of the Maryland Declaration of Rights: That the inhabitants of Mary land are entitled to the Common Law of England, and the trial by jury, according to the course of that law * * * That in all criminal cases every man hath a right * * * to a speed} 7 trial by an impartial jury, without whose tuianimous consent he ought not to be found guilty. [ Roars of merriment. ] From the third paragraph of Chap ter 4 of the Town Code of Frostburg the Journal quotes — 1 It shall be the duty of the Bailiff '■ and ever} 7 Policeman to take into : custody any dog running at large, ! not provided with and wearing the tag [ Side-splitting grins. ] Passing of the Partisan. The Washington (D. C.) Star ob serves that “the time has passed when a man’s vote could be absolutely foretold by noting his customary party affiliations.” Probably a good thing. Miss Dolly Devecmon reported as recovering from a severe illness. Lieut, and Mrs. C. B. Gatewood, re turned from their wedding tour, stopped at the St. Cloud Hotel. Henry Rehs, nearly 25 years old, step-son of Henry Weinberg, of this place, died Sunday, July 15, 1881, of lock-jaw, brought on by an accidental shot from a toy pistol on the 4th. He was an estimable young man. Both the Arion and Crystal Concert Bands attended the funeral and played sev eral dirges. The Frostburg Gas-Light Company was organized in John C. Weis’ office in 1870 and charter obtained April 22d, of same year. The incorporators were John M. Standish, Douglas Per cy, Nelson Beall, Thomas H. Paul, Adam E. Hitchins, James Kane, Marx Wineland, Joseph Jandorf and Lloyd Lowndes, jr. The capital was $50,000. February 17, 1871, the works were finished, Joseph Keller manager, Watson Carr superintendent. Don’t buy toy pistols for the chil dren. Broadway had become the town’s fashionable promenade. View from Standish mansion finest in town. A great many visitors to Dan’s Rock. One from Ocean declared he could see Richmond, Va., through his telescope. Man from Midland alleged that telescope was a whiskey-bottle— once full. John Hart was hurt in Ocean mine Thursday, July 21, 1881, by a fall of slate. If town council would buy a street sprinkler many dollars would be saved to tax-paying merchants. The astronomers reported that the comet, then disappearing, could not return until the year 2,456. The Journal was compelled to re ject “Effie’s” poem—“ The Whitened Snow,” on the ground that “it is an unseasonable redundancy.” The great, long-drawn-out Polk street crossing dispute in Cumberland came to an end Thursday, July 21, 1881. The B. &O. R. finally conced ed all that was demanded, and did it self Sunday, July 15, what the G. C. and C. R. was going to do next day. The Longest Word. “What is the longest word in the English language ?” asked Uncle Tom. “Valetudinarianism, I suppose,” re plied Jomes, who had taken a prize in spelling. “No,” spoke up Susie; “it’s ‘smiles’ because there is a whole mile between the first and last letters.” “I know one,” said Jack, “that has over three miles between its first and last letters.” “What word is that ?” asked Uncle Tom. “Beleaguered,” cried Jack, trium phantly. “I know one,” said Philip, “that is longer than that. ‘Transcontinental’ has a whole continent between its be ginning and ending.” “ ‘lnteroceanic’ beats them all,” exclaimed Elsie, “for it contains an ocean; and an ocean is larger than any continent.” —LippincotV s. Died. At the home of her son-in-law and daughter —Mr. and Mrs. John M. Street, Cumberland, Friday, July 7, 1911, Mrs. Mary Spicer, widow, aged 82 years. Mrs. Spicer was a native and long-time resident of Harford county, this State, and to Bel Air her body was immediately taken by Mr. and Mrs. Streett for interment. One daughter other than Mrs. Streett is also bereaved —Miss Ida Spicer, of Churchville, Harford county. Fitiaticial Report. Messrs. W. E. G. Hitchins and Frank G.

Matthew Muir and Mary Frances Close, both of Midland. Staggered. Hank, musing the other day, snook this into the Cumberland News: “Is journalism a profession or a trade?” asks Brother Oder, in the Frostburg Mining Journal. Pshaw! Most Venerable Scribe! Tut! Tut! Even a young fellow like Hank could tell the Master Mind of Frostburg journalism is an art and a fine art at that, with which is combined aptitude, readi ness, skill, dexterity and adroit ness. Journalism is one of the arts of life and Brother Oder is its prophet! For once “the paper that is uncon ditionally independent and exclusive ly great” is overcome, sprawled, flat tened out! All too good to be true! How will the Journal ever get even without appearing to exemplify reci procity? A Good Candidate. Among the announcements for nomination this week will be found that of Mr. William A. Huster, of Cumberland, for the House of Dele gates. By those who know him Mr. Huster is spoken of as a lawyer who, though young, is able, exemplary, tireless and generally well qualified to pro mote the people’s interests in the Legislature. It appears, therefore, that he should be one of the six whom the Republi can party will select as a representa tive of its claims to proper support. HENRY F. COOK, Manager. WHOLE HUMBER 2,075 Lake Sylvan. David Harum Plummer, of Shaft, here several weeks ago, discussed the Carlos proposition to remove the site of Lake Sylvan to to that place. He did so “without fear or favor,” feel ing confident that Mark Twain Coop -1 er, Majmr, was “unanimously against i it,” and that the entire population of Shaft is in full sympathy with and support of the Mayor. A few days later Mark Twain Coop ' er, Mayor, was here and Citizen Plummer’s views being retailed to him, he ratified them by wholesale, and said he could prove the whole case by John P. Thomas, plunger. How this report will be received by William Grimes, Mayor of Carlos, re mains to be heard from. Literary Cure for Snoring;. To the snorers who ask for the cure let the cause be announced. Snoring is the result of stomachic repletion and mental vacuity. A correspond ent who has suffered from both pre scribes the cure. A light supper —or none —to avoid repletion, and the fre quent repetition of some literary phrase to provide occupation for the mind during sleeping hours. Go to bed fasting and think of some short liter ary phrase to occupy your mind. The combination of the two prescrip tions against snoring—the abstention from food and the meditation upon a literary phrase—may be found in Fcclesiasticus, the ninetieth verse of the thirty-first chapter: “How suf ficient to a well-mannefed man is a very little, and he doth not breathe hard upon his bed.”—London Chronicle. The Mayor to the Children. Among all the Fourth of July ora tions there are none better than the thirty-six lines which Mayor Gaynor wrote for the school children of New York. It was not necessary for him to multiply words on the Revolution and the Signing at Philadelphia. The children know about that. But it was well to tell them or to remind them that— No official in this country, how ever high, can exercise any arbi trary power whatever. Our public officials can only do what the law's empower them to do. Those put in office by the people cannot do as they like, but only as the laws prescribe. There is no more dangerous man in this free country than the offi cial who thinks that he is better than the laws or can do as he likes regardless of the laws. We celebrate this day year after year so that we may not forget the principles and safeguards of free government, and by forget ting lose them. A celebration which should but glorify the past and bear no message for the present and the future would not be worth the while. —New York World. Liberal Contribution. To the Cardinal Gibbons Memorial Fund the parish of St. Michael’s Church, Frostburg, contributed $608.75. Large and small, the contri butions came from nearly everyone in the parish. Kentucky Town Refutes a Slander. The report that the mud is eight inches deep on the streets of Leba non is an error. At no place is it more than six inches, and in some places the depth does not exceed five. —Lebanon (Ky.) Enterprise. Nearly Completed. The Western Maryland tunnel through Great Savage mountain, near ly completed, will be 3,278 feet long— a fraction less than three-fourths of a mile. The little excavation remaining to be done is at the west end. Brevities. The Oakland Journal , adverting to the Journal’s reply to the Hamble ton circular article, says the Journal is “envious.” The Journal pleads —notguilty. It couldn’t be “envious” of a highway marksman who, aiming at a State road, hits several lanes. Hey? Some Pittsburg doctor said news papers were to blame for some suicides by reporting the several ways in which that crime has been committed. But the Sun says that doctors who say such things fail to name the paper, for instance, that Nero took. And for what paper did Tiberius' subscribe? Or whose paper did Cleopatra read? And then there were Hannibal and Brutus, probably “dead-heads” — what papers were forced upon them free of charge, postage paid? The nearest thing to the doctor’s diagnosis in this instance is visible herein Titus A. Brick’s commotion whenever the Fvitt’s Creek proposition takes a turn which arouses the Cumberland news papers. “That skears me nearly over the limit,” Tite alleges. “Many a man,” says the Detroit Free Press, “who has a prosperous ap pearance, still owes for the appear ance.” Sounds discouraging to the tailors. Prof. John F. Daggett, of Chicago, is now somewhere between that city and Boston testing the efficacy of elec tric roads. If he comes to Frostburg the Journal will ask him to investi gate the efficiency of the Belt Line.
