Strong Statement from Good
One of the finest articles on “adver
tising” in a long time appears in the
Hardware Reporter, St. Bouis, Mo., j
of the 15th inst. The first paragraph
“It has been charged, and in some
measure rightfully so, that the aver
age retail hardware dealer does not
use his local newspaper as much as he
should for the promotion of his busi
ness, but is rather inclined to assume
an attitude of indifference towards
newspaper publicity and to endeavor
to get along without making use of
the advertising columns of his paper
to any material extent. It is" not an
unusual thing to pick up a newspaper
in a good live town and not find a
single hardware advertisement in it,
though it may abound in announce
ments of grocery, dry goods, and va
rious other stores, and even be patro
nized by a far-away mail-order house.
It is frequently the case, too, that
when a merchant fails to advertise
his store and business through this
medium his show windows are neg
lected, for these two methods of ad
vertising usually work hand in hand.
If they do not, they should, for it is
the mission of the one to help the
And so on through five more similar
The moral is—what is true of hard
ware advertising is true of all other
lines of mercantile advertising.
And, brought directly home, it
should be regarded by all the business
people of Frostburg as a part of their
business duly to advertise in their
Sterling Galt, editor of the Emmits
burg Chronicle —an excellent news
paper, is the democratic nominee for
the State Senate in Frederick county,
and people who know him say he will
make a progressive legislator if
elected. Just “Thirty Years Ago” the
editor of the Journal enjoyed the
same honor, but his party enemies in
Cumberland were too “slick” for him.
In the east end of the county they
persuaded a number of voters to be

WHEN HER BACK AGHES.
A Woman Finds All Her Energy and
Ambition Slipping Away.
Frostburg women know how the
aches and pains that come when the
kidneys fail make life a burden.
Backache, hip pains, headaches, dizzy
spells, distressing urinary troubles, all
tell of sick kidneys and warn you of
the stealthy approach of dropsy or
Bright’s disease. Doan’s Kidney Pills
are for the kidneys only. They at
tack kidney diseases by striking at the
cause. Here’s proof of it in a Frost
burg woman’s worde:
Mrs. Cleaver Richardson, 102 Center
street, Frostburg, Md., says: “I
found Doan’s Kidney Pills to be a very
■ good kidney medicine and I publicly
endorsed them in 1907. All that I then
said in their praise still holds good.
I had various symptoms of kidney
complaint. My head and back ached
and often I felt dizzy and nervous.
Mornings on arising, I was all tired
out and my kidneys were in bad shape.
Hearing about Doan’s Kidney Pills, I
used them and they not only drove
away the pains but toned up my entire
system. One of my children was af
flicted with kidney trouble, and in
this case Doan’s Kidney Pills effected
a complete cure.”

Melville Dennison took issue with
this statement, saying he and his base

last Sunday, and down there a pupil

Does Baltimore Deserve It?
There will be two amendments on
the ballot, this year, providing for in
creased representation for Baltimore
in the legislature, and about these the
• voters of Carroll ought to be thinking.
The effect of these amendments, if
they had been in force this year, would
have been to increase Senator Gor
- man’s vote to 78 instead of 65. The
r change, therefore, would not only af
fect the vote of conventions, but all
matters coming before the legislature
in which both city and counties are
interested, as well as all general legis
On the basis of representation ac
cording to population, Baltimore seems
entitled to the increase, but for all
other reasons it is not. The counties
have not a single interest to be served,
that we are aware of, to justify their
giving to Baltimore this increased hold
on the political and business future of
, the State. The city shows a grasping,
domineering spirit along all lines,
and appears to consider that the State
exists merely to feed it, politically
„ and otherwise.
It may be the fault of the repre
sentatives from the counties in. the
legislature, who lend themselves to
the superior ability and wiles of the
; city’s representatives, that the city al
ready has too much power in shaping
a legislation, and especially politics.
That is the fact, at least. The city
organization, and city interests, have
first call on all things worth having,
, and the city papers are continually re
} minding the counties' that the city
s pays more than its share of the State
1 taxes, for the upkeep of public roads
- and improvements.

more political and legislative power,
