Vennor predicted a mild winter. Messrs. Gross & Nickel built for themselves a furniture wagon—some thing entirely new for furniture de livery. George Ort, of this place, working in Eckhart Slope, was painfully hurt by a fall of top coal. Messrs. P. F. Burwell and John Douglas, School Commissioners, held a conference with the Trustees of Public School No. 1, but could reach no conclusion. Meanwhile, Thomas Hill, Vice-Principal, was continued in charge. Ezekiel Kennedy, teamster, stricken with paralysis Tuesday, October 18, died Monday, October 24, 1881, aged 65 years. Gypsies encamped near Clarysville held a public ball in McMillan’s Hall Tuesday evening, October 25th. A complete failure, however, because no ladies would attend. It was announced that a Camp of the Order of Red Men would soon be instituted in Frostburg. “Pinafore” at Odd Fellows Opera House Friday evening, October 21, 1881, was enjoyed by a large audience. The singing of Miss Sarah Thomas, as “Buttercup,” was very fine. In the pastoral residence Sunday, October 23, 1881, by Rev. V. F. Schmitt, Miss Mary R. Harriman, of Eckhart, was married to Mr. Dennis Wade, of Frostburg. In St. Michael’s Church Tuesday, October 25, 1881, by Rev. V. F. Schmitt, Miss Mary Ellen Shea, of Frost mine, was married to Mr. John Harvey, of Frostburg. In the pastoral residence Wednes day, October 26, 1881, by Rev. W F. Schmitt, Miss Mary E. Jordan, of Frostburg, was married to Mr. A. J. Bevans, of Grantsville. In the German Lutheran Church Thursday, October 27, 1881, by Rev. A. Homrighaus, Miss Martha Offman, of Frostburg, was married to Mr. William Horchler, of Eckhart. Political Meetings. Democratic Hon. A. P. Gorman, nominee for Governor, and his traveling party of 34 reached Frostburg Tuesday even ing a half hour late; took supper at Hotel Gladstone, and left for Cumber land about the same time late. The weather was rainy, and the lobby of the hotel being well filled short speeches were made from the stairway by Hon. Emerson C. Har rington, nominee for Comptroller, and by Mr. Gorman. Hon. Edgar Allan Poe, nominee for Attorney-General, was also present, but confined his work to hand-shaking. Republican Very shortly after the democrats left Hon. Phillips Fee Goldsborough, nominee for Governor; Hon. John H. Cunningham, nominee for Comptrol ler, and Hon. Morris A. Soper, nomi nee for Attorney-General, arrived, ac companied by a number of friends. They, too, occupied the lobby for over two hours speaking and hand o'haKing. NexCinorning early they started on a whirlwind circuit of the mines, Mt. Savage, Midland, Lonaconing, Barton and Westernport. General The adherents of both parties seem pleased with results. Coming. The new railroad track is laid near ly to Mt. Savage. Honestly, with 44 years, save 4 (Lowndes) record in our State, with only one defaulting- State Official, is a remark ably good record for the Democratic Party. Compare this with States who have been solidly Republican for even one fourth the time. AN INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPER. Tuesday, October 25, 1881, Miss . Jane Davis, of Frostburg, was married to Mr. William Close, of Eckhart. “Caledonian Games,” in Detmold Grove, Lonaconing, Saturday, Octo . ber 22, 1881, drew very many visitors ' from all along the Creek. A. P. Bancroft was in town during ( the week - collecting data for Scharf’s I forthcoming History of Western Mary : land. “For one of his years (19) he L manifested great aptitude for the , work.” His father—R. P. Bancroft, ( came with him, but after getting his son started left for another field. Hon. and Mrs. A. J. Wisdom, of Warsaw, Mo., visited Mr. and Mrs. I James Kane, of this place. Mrs. Wis dom was the widow of the late Maj. J. H. Huntley. Mr. and Mrs Wisdom were married in Warsaw Friday, Octo- I ber .19, 1881. Mr. and Mrs. George Lammert, of Eckhart, lost by death an infant daughter—Mary E-, Saturday, Octo : ber 22, 1881. Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Gouser, of this place, lost by death from membranous L croup an infant son —Isaac Clayton, ’ Thursday, October 27, 1881. A National Labor mass meeting was held in Odd Fellows Opera House Monday, October 24, 1881. Thomas > Rooney called the meeting to order; ■ W. B. Baird presided ; Robert W. : Price, of Lonaconing, and Col. Charles > T. Roberts, of Lansing, Mich., deliv ered addresses and Messrs. A. T. , Reckner, James P. Hanna, Herman , Winner, Thomas Anderson, William : Grimes and Michael J. Carney took part. 1 Rev. W. O. Petty, pastor of the English Baptist Church, and family - returned home from a visit to Missouri. The first shipment of coal over the : new West Virginia Central and Pitts ■ burg Railroad was made Thursday, October 20, 1881. It was loaded at Elk [ Garden and consigned to Shaw Broth ers, Baltimore. Samuel Johnson declined the demo cratic nomination for House of Delegates in Garrett county. Newspaper Attitudes. The Cumberland News, has quit agreeing with the grand jury con . cerning the county treasury loans and deposits. The Lonaconing Advocate and the Cumberland American disagree with the jury, and the Cumberland Times' bank-loan expert evidently “hasn’t come” yet from Baltimore. e S'oTl. “Don’t you think the custom of [ throwing rice at a newly married couple is idiotic?” asked the fluffy haired maid. “Sure,” answered the savage old bachelor. “Mush would be a great deal more appropriate.” Death of a Sister. Sister Mary Ursula, a nun, resident of St. Michael's Ursuline Convent, died at 5 o’clock Friday evening, October 13, 1911, of pneumonia, in the 47th year of her age. She was ill but a few days, and her death, comparatively sudden, was a distressing shock to the household, l and one lamented by the entire con gregation. She was a teacher in the Parochial School and regarded as one of the best of the faculty. Her name in the world was Miss 1 Annie M. Cummings, a native of Providence, R. I. The funeral was held in St. Michael’s Church early Monday morning, Rev. - J. S. Cuddy, assistant pastor, officiat ing; interment in the church cemeterju Grahamtou News. Miss Cora Martin, daughter of the Mayor of Grahamtou, visited her sis ter—Mrs. Stanley Loar, of Vale Sum mit, last Saturday and Sunday. Charles Alexander Saurbaugh, Night Policeman of Grahamtou and Day Carpenter of Eckhart, sprained his back Monday lifting a loaded 40- ton coal-car on the track. William Jenkins, Third Councilman of Grahamton, was at Barrelville Mon day arranging to sink the coal shaft for the coal company at that place. He is a competent man for the work, and the company is fortunate in ob taining his service. Not long ago he received a legacy from England amounting to about SI,BOO, accruing from his interest in the estate of a dead relative. P. T. McGann, of Frostburg, passed through Grahamton a few days ago en route to Carlos Junction. Someone knowing that two Hungarians who owed him about S2O were about to re turn to the fatherland, notified him. Hence, his visit to the junction, and he got the money ! Miss Blanche Savage, of Graham ton, lonely all the week, enjoys Sun day very much—the day when a nice young man comes up from the lower end of the Creek and drops off the car at a point 1% minutes’ walk from where she is looking through the win dow for him. Miss Eva Martin, daughter of the Mayor of Grahamton, returned from the Hagerstown Fair Saturdays and reports an enjoyable time. James Ellis Yates, son of Isaac Yates, First Councilman of Graham ton, and Joseph Cook, Lumber Secre tary of the Johnson Brothers, Frost burg, went to Washington, D. C., last Sunday and report a glorious time. William Saurbaugh, the young man who had a leg and arm broken in the Mayer fire-clay mine several weeks ago, is coming around all right again. The property owned by Miles Cook and occupied by Robert Simpson, Bailiff of Grahamton, was very ma terially improved last week by the “laying on” of a new roof. P. T. McGann, of Grant street, Frostburg, was blowing sometime ago about the celery he is growing and promised Robert Simpson, Bailiff of Grahamton, a nice mess, but all of it must be gone, as the Bailiff has not enjoyed the expected opportunity — Of acknowledging the proposed favor, Or of commenting upon its flavor. Mrs. George Savage can boast of having the largest crop of buckwheat, and Owen Crump can brag of the big gest output of potatoes in Grahamton. Isaac Yates, First Councilman of Grahamton, how'ever, can go ahead of all others in that town in showing the most prodigious cauliflower. Cornelius Devore, of Grahamton, has the biggest squash ever known in rjfttAAAA AA AA AA A A A AAA-A A A A A A 1 ij How do the Democratic Candidates, State and Local, socially, j politically and morally, compare with the Republican Candidates? E <9 This is food for thought. • | j town —16 inches wide, and 5 inches thick. Much interest was manifested the other day in a discussion of the situ ation between Pharaoh and Joseph when there was a dream of corn and king, especially of the kine which came up out of the water and devoured the corn or something like that. Any way the question arose— : “what is kine?” The Bailiff contended that “kine is cattle, because they eat corn,” but the Mayor just as stren ouly held that “kine is fish, or they wouldn’t have been in the water.” Up to the hour of sending this to the press the difference has not been settled. Sounded Like Another Word. Maud —What Is woman’s sphere? Jack—That her hat isn’t on straight— Boston Transcript. Outing. A quartette comprising George J. Wittig, George Stern, Rudolph Nickel and A. Charles Stewart reached home last Saturday from a tour which took in Winchester, Hagerstown and Gettysburg. At Winchester they called upon Miss Fdythe Price, Port Uoudoun Seminary; at Hagerstown they compared notes with other Frost burgers concerning the merits of the Fair, and at Gettysburg they became guests of Glenn Beall and Holt Hitch ins, Frostburg students of Gettysburg College. A mock trial in one of the literary societies of the College enter tained them much. On Saturday morning, however, in touring the bat tlefield the climax of interest was reached when they found the dent made in Culp’s Hill by the Journai, when the great paper busted through the Federal line during the second day’s battle! WHOLE HUMBER 2,089. e | FOOT-BALL. A. H. S. VS. B. H. S. Class A, football department, Beall High School, went to Cumberland Fri ’ day evening of last week and Class j B, foot-ball department, Allegany High School, instituted enough up-kicks, in punts and other scrimmage strategies to win—l 9 to 0. 1 One ball was nagged by Brophy, but a right error, named Sloan, up tackled it with a down foul, and that ' left it about where it started. ’ It is said that if a third-back had been allowed to enter that both Mc- Mannis and Metzger would have made l & an out-punt and two m-kicks. ’ But the home Class is not discour -1 aged. Nobody, luckily, had to go to a foot-ball garage to be repaired, and * one thing is certain—if we can’t lick ' Cumberland, we can lay that inevita ble 0 on Lonaconing, Mt. Savage, Midland, or the class that is going to be instituted at Flintstone. Mt. Savage vs. Cumberland Day after next the two teams above indexed met in a scrouge and Mt. Savage was laid out with a score of , 10 to 0, making 29 to nix for Cumber . land in two days. It must be a very „ unscientific game that results so uni l formly in such absurd scores. The First Death Walter E. Merryman, of Wellsburg, i W. Va., in the Davis-Flkins College i Football Class, had his skull fractured l in the tussle with the Football Class of the Western Maryland College at ; Westminster, this State, last Satur . day, and died Monday evening in a . Baltimore hospital. He was injured within a few minutes t of the close of the fourth quarter of the game, the back of his head strik ) ing the ground with a thud. While , carrying the ball he was tackled by a player of the opposing team. When he was picked up he was conscious a few minutes, but soon sank into a state of coma from which he never ’ recovered. What possible words in any lexicon, no matter how good, can be used to furnish real comfort to those who > | loved him? 5 More Dangers H The Foot High Ball School Class £ had a sub rosa session Tuesday after t noon, and after exchange of safety clues and danger signals with a vari ation corn doctor concerning, especial | ly, what is to the other side the back . i ward scrouge, determined to rush competing mobs at Lonaconing, Key ’ ser, Frostburg and Terra Alta. Meanwhile, parents who have un dergrown ability to keep their boys f out of danger should pray for the for- tune which staves off largely-attended r funerals, in spite of the invitations which modern education, co-operat , ! ing with death-rushes, extends to and i j provides for the young. _l ' A Wise Remark. James Weston, of Bckhart, was over at Pocahontas last Sunday and saw Titus A. Brick, who was visiting Mr. Pink Whiskers. In the course of de bate over the proper way to promote real-estate values Tite told Weston that “what we want is—not culture by itself, but agriculture.” This Paper. A subscriber in Akron, Ohio, writ ing for a change of address, says “I am always glad to get the Mining Journai,. It pleases me in every way.” A town patron let it be known over ’phone the other day that he “didn’t get last week’s issue. Send at once; can’t do without it!” Brevities. The Oakland Journal quoting from Browning—mot E). A., says—“ Progress is the law of life ; man is not man as yet.” The presumption, then, is—he is still a republican, democrat, prohi bitionist, or socialist. No matter which party he hails from the nominee with a circulating card parades himself as a patron of “the union.” Can even “unionists,” the professed foes of monopoly, be thus deceived ? A University man in Baltimore com plained to a member of the Charter Commission that the latter is “at least two years out of date with your facts.” And still the C. C. man is only one third as bad as the 106-year centen nialist. The Jeannette (Pa.) Dispatch warns sportsmen not to shoot when they see something flying in the air. It might be an aviator—not a bird.
