FROSTBURG, MI)., SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1911. I WHAT CAN A DEMOCRAT GAIN BY VOTING THE 3 REPUBLICAN TICKET? ~ THINK THIg OVER. § a jj A Good Candidate. For election to the office of Judge of the Orphans’ Court the name of John F. Workman, of District No. 11, Democratic Nominee, is here pre sented. Mr. Workman is one of the com munity’s best citizens—a straightfor ward, honest, unobtrusive man. He is all this by inheritance as well as instinct and habit. There were seven Workmans to whom original grants of land were t JOHN S'. WORKMAN. [ made in this section during the 18th < century—all sturdy farmers and ex l emplary men. One of them was John } F’s ancestor and he lives on land that l once belonged to one of the seven. t “Now and then,” said one of his [ friends the other day, “I believe that i the names of some known here for at least four generations should go on the county roster, and I believe that | now is a good time for the people to remind themselves of what they owe I to American names over 100 years old.” ) Mr. Workman is fitted for the office ) in every way. ) ■■ ) | ) I ; ) i ) I ) H Honestly, with 44 years, save 4 (Lowndes) record In our State, with only one defaulting State Official, is a remarkably good record I for the Democratic Party. Compare this with States who have been solidly Republican for even one-fourth the time. Free of Cost. There are hundreds of trained scien tists employed by the National Gov ernment, whose time is passed in ex amining into problems, sometimes en tirely scientific and related only to the discovery of original facts and the formulation of basic theories, as is done largely by the skilled technolo gists of the Smithsonian Institute, and partly by the magnificent force com manded by Dr. Wiley in the Bureau of Chemistry; and sometimes devoted more entirely to economic researches into the facts of chemistry, geology, etc., laying the groundwork for great practical industrial development, as is done by the Bureau of Soils, the Bureau of Chemistry, the Bureau of Plant Industry, and the Bureaus of Mines, of Fisheries, and of Forestry. Time was, and not so long ago, when people smiled at these governmental ■ activities, but we are beginning to learn that while the scientist may be amusing, he is really doing things, not merely dabbling. Recently attention has been directed to the great Smithsonian Institute, a wonderfxil repository for historic curios from the public view, but in fact far more important than a mere museum —a starting-point for independent scientific research, out of which is coming much of practical value for the industrial development and im provement of our country. Even the purely scientific studies —the looking after truths regardless of their appar ent economic value, is really of the first importance. All of the useful discoveries are based on the truths primarily established by scientific thought and study. The student, especially in botany, zoology, biology, physics, meteorology and scientific geology, will find not only interesting specimens in the Smithsonian, but many booklets and full-grown books are published by the I Institute, which are of the greatest instructive value. Any student who is interested in these subjects, and wishes to have these publications to ! assist him, either in reading or study, may secure them by writing to Con gressman David J. Lewis, at Wash ington, stating the general subjects in which he is interested, and the Congressman will gladly secure such publications for him without cost. To Mollie On the Twelfth Anniversary of Our Wedding—September 27, 1911. Not often in life’s journey, dear, Three events important fall So closely in the calendar That, as one observed, are all. To-day, my love, that treasure blest We will celebrate with joy— My own birth-day, our nuptial feast, And the birth-day of Our Boy. Impressed am I—and thankful, too, For blessings great and rare — For thy confidence, my wife so true, And children fond and fair. ’Tis not always so, alas, with men Who, in the sphere of life, Choose, foolishly, of woman’s kind A frivolous maid for wife. Not so the lot that came to me In you, my Mollie fair; Nor one moment gave you cause to rue, Nor ever caused despair. And so I pledge my love anew— As you will, I’m sure, to me; Each year, please God, we’ll both review Love’s true fidelity. And that though, some say, I “flirt with fate,” And ignore old Father Time; For you are in your prime estate, And I’m well past manhood’s prime. M. A. Chambers. St. Andrew, Florida. The Newer New Style. Last Sunday the children of a Balti more Sunday school sang a hymn which, according to a programme found among the church records, was sung just 91 years before in same church. According to the Frostburg centennial calendar, 91 years is incor rect. Should be 96 years, 5 months and 16 days. Resigns Management. Nelson B. Winter, general manager of the Frostburg Illuminating and Manufacturing Company, has resigned that office in order to take up a more lucrative position in Chicago. Mr. Winter will enter business for himself, having become identified with The General Sales and Stone Con tracting Company, Chicago, dealing in building and decorative stone, granite and marble, and will act as manager of the business. During Mr. Winter’s term as mana ger of the electric light company’s business he has “made good.” Many improvements in the business have been conceived and installed and he leaves the company better equipped than ever to meet its demands. He will be succeeded by Charles H. Leatham, of this place, a young man well versed in the electrical business. Mr. Winter is now making Mr. Leatham familiar with the details of the business, and will remain with the company until his successor is ready to take hold. Meanwhile, he has completed ar rangements to enter his new business in Chicago, and will leave for the west as soon as he is able to wind up his affairs here. His many friends regret to see him leave Frostburg, but wish him the best of fortune in his new undertaking. He is a young gen tleman of high character and, owning fine attainments in both commercial and social prestige, he has before him a bright future. Am Appreciated Endorsement. The Frostburg Journal was forty years old last week, and its veteran editor, J. Benson Oder, says it “will continue its effort to exemplify the Golden Rule—to do for the community all that it would have the community do for the Journal.” We hope the expectations of the Journal will be realized as to the community. We know the Journal will do its part. — Piedmont (W. Va.) Herald. Brevities.

L. P. Wolfe announced the opening of a night school for teaching tele graphy. Daniel Davis died at Borden Shaft Sunday, October 16, 1881, in the 69th year of his age. He was a native of Wales, but had been here about 30 years. Left six children. Under the pastorate of Rev. Frank G. Porter a new Methodist Church at Rawlings had been completed. Some trouble over principalship of the Frostburg Public School. Mean while, Thomas Hill, vice-principal, was in charge. Much satisfaction was expressed over the assured fact that Frostburg, Pompey Smash, Louaconing and Cumberland would soon be united un der one telephone system. Owing to a sudden and painful ill ness, Hon. George A. Pearre was un able to open the October term of the Circuit Court. William Broderick announced him self an independent candidate for the the State Senate. A. C. Gross, independent candidate for Sheriff, withdrew in favor of J. W. Shuck, republican-committee nomi nee. Dr. C. C.

But they are doomed to defeat. Story Founded on Fact. There was a row among Frostburg musicians several evenings ago, start ing with the mellifluous word, “cen tennial.” Reserving names and suppressing the emotional, one dared another to at tempt a definition of the word. “All right, I know well enough,” re sponded the dared; “in fact, I know better than you know what a quartette is.” “A quartette is!” angrily explained No. 1; “you should say a quartette are!” “Well, then, what is a quartette are?” asked No. 2. “A quartette are three and a tenor!” explained No. 1 in a manner so con clusive that nothing more could be said. But No. 2 “came back” — “O, I’ve got you now!” “How have you got me now?” asked No. 1. “Why a three and a ten-er are 13— you old centennial you!” And No. 2 had to run for his life. Contributions. The hymn, entitled “Witnesses,” elsewhere printed, was recently com posed by Miss Esser Marshall Hoff man, of Binden, Va., for the Women’s Home Mission Society, Baltimore Con ference, M. E. Church, South, and a copy is in the hands of a Windsor (N. C.) musician for setting to special music. Miss Hoffman writes of it as “an auxiliary hymn,” no doubt to class it with others of similar import which have not had the opportunity to pass the ordeal for admission to a page of the church hymnal. Meanwhile, the Journal believes it enjoys the privilege of furnishing the first typo graphic presentation of the hymn. X j tice of medicine. The Davitt Branch of the Irish Land League passed some stirring resolu t tions of indignation over the arrest of l Charles Stewart Parnell by British f authorities at a meeting in Paul’s 1 Opera House. The paper was signed by John O. Winter, John McCaughan, c jr., Michael Murphy, Michael Duffy l and W. E. Dillon, committee. Harry Robinson bought the fresh f meat store belonging to Lewis Bepler. Miss Naamah Shearer, of Midland, 5 was married in that place Wednesday, October 19, 1881, to Mr. John Beach, 1 of New York. > The Knights of Honor--Frostburg 1 Lodge, No. S9O, passed resolutions of ' respect in memorial of Charles Low ensteiu, who died in Grantsville Tues - day, September 27, 1881. Ezekiel Kennedy, wagon-driver for ; Thomas Humberston, was stricken with paralysis while driving about 4 - miles west of town Tuesday, October ; 18, 1881. Speech and mind lost from shock and condition regarded as . critical. J. M. Porter, of Eckhart, had re - covered from a short illness. Mrs. William Wonn and daughter— t Miss Helen, returned from a visit to - relatives in Milwaukee, Wis. Apples. The very neat, novel and extended display of apples in one of the big windows of Shea’s drug store has oc casioned very much comment upon the adaptability of this section to apple culture. Those on display were grown on the farm of Dr. G. L. Lining er, in Pennsylvania, not far from Frostburg. There are twelve varie ties, each fitting one of the months of the year for consecutive use—an inter esting correlation. The trees .upon which these fine apples were grown have never been sprayed nor received any special attention. About a dozen big red apples in one of the Pearce drug store windows, grown in Garrett county, are also beautiful specimens. Uriah Loar, a Dan’s Mountain far mer, here Wednesday, reported hav ing 13 apples, weighing 1% . pounds each, that filled a bushel measure! Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Shea drove to Grantsville last Sunday and saw hun dreds of bushels of apples on trees which showed very few signs of at tention. All of which confirms the conviction that this would be a wonderfully pro lific fruit-garden—if the people would get busy as fruit-gardeners. The Sick. John Kreiling, of Green street, is laid up with injured feet —hurt in the mine some time ago. * Daniel Labor, of Washington street, ill for sometime, continues indisposed.
