FROSTBURG, MD. - - NOV. 18, 1911.
The efforts of selfish interest to de
feat the Republican candidate for
County Treasurer, have had the re
sult of depriving Cumberland, the
county-seat, of representation on the
Board of County Commissioners. —
Cumberland American.
That isn’t so bad.
Cumberland never loses.
Even a favor bestowed anywhere in
the county outside the city becomes,
by re-action, a benefit to the latter.
In the vast majority of cases the ad
vantage to Cumberland is automatic
in operation.
If Frostburg sends a man to jail
Frostburg people “lose his keep” to

penitentiary Baltimore wins.

Eonaconing enjoys the credit of
furnishing the sheriff for the county
during next term, but he will have to
spend his money in Cumberland.
Then, in nine of ten instances, see
ing within two years what a bulge the
city has on the country, Eonaconing
loses a popular citizen.
Within the two decades last past
some State Senator had the election
law so amended that no registration
or election advertising can be done
outside of Cumberland. Whatever of
$12,000 it costs for this item and for
election and advertising printing—
and it must be a considerable sum,
has to be expended in Cumberland
onlj'—a legal arrangement which, so
far as it goes, forbids the publication
of newspapers outside of Cumberland!
The same Cumberland friend of
Georges Creek, it is believed, accom
plished the astonishing feat of au
thorizing the County Commissioners
by law to appropriate annually S6OO of
county money to pay Cumberland city
election expenses—a tribute which the
city could not otherwise exact —if it
owned all the Commissioners.
If the new Board of County Com
missioners and the new delegation to
the Legislature would “ get together ”
to have this law made fair, like all
laws should be— just fair, that’s all—
they would do a good thing, to begin
As it is, so far as Allegany county
is concerned, the State’s boasted con
constitutional guarantee of “a free
press as a bulwark of liberty,” or
words to that effect, is a farce that
roars from Oldtown, skipping Cum
berland, to Bloomington!
But whether the Commissioners
come from city or county, Cumber
land, with no railroad or other travel
ing expenses or loss of time, is always
“at home” in the Commissioners’
office. In number and noise Cumber
land can quickly and inexpensively
meet any extra-pull emergency.
In such instances only the affirma
tive is heard ; the negative, never ad
vised, is deep in the mine or far afield.
Cumberland has a good thing of it
as the county-seat—in law, out of
law; industrially, commercially, and
in' every other way.
It is to the county what Baltimore
is to the State, and neither needs any
thing more than the majority of stand
ing privileges which both already own
and enjoy.

A Disgusted Super.
Sir Henry Irving used to tell a story
of a super who had to rush on the
stage and give the announcement,
"My lord, the king is here!”
Thinking that the man might be af
flicted by stage fright, Sir Henry in
structed him to shout out the words
at the top of his voice. When the cue
came the proud and obedient super
rushed forward and roared stentorious
“My lord, the king is here!”
“Ha! What sayest thou?” cried the
famous actor, which happened to be
the next line of the play.
A look of intense disgust and dis
appointment crossed the super’s face,
and to the delight of the audience he
blurted out indignantly;
“Oh, you ’eard right enough!”

Hartz, of Midlothian, surprised him

“Barriers Burned Away.”
Frostburg, Md., Nov. 17, 1911.
To the Mining Journal.
Just a word of commendation of J.
H. Hitchins for giving the people
what, in my humble judgment, was
one of the very best shows ever pro
duced here—“Barriersßurned Away.”
The story is a beautiful one, and in
the play it was well staged; each
personator of character is an artist,
and the moral—“ Fidelity to Purpose,”
was portrayed in a manner to make a
lasting impression on all auditors.
Play's of this stamina should be pre
sented here oftener. They are inter
esting’, entertaining, and teach a code
which would be beneficial in bringing
about an irreproachable standard of
morality and a proper conception of
what life really means.
Indeed, the play, from my view
point, was a forceful sermon, such as
seldom comes from the stage.

The Halliday
A Story of Their Quick
Copyright by American Press Asso
ciation, 1911.

Elsie Halliday stood before her
dressing table looking down at her
Jewel case with frightened eyes and
a wildly beating heart. Costly gems
sparkled from every velvet lined com
partment but one. The white nest
that had contained the famous emer
ald necklace, the Halliday heirloom,
was empty.
She rang the bell, and after awhile a
strange maid appeared.
“Will you send Louise, my maid?”
asked Elsie.
“I do not think she is here, miss,”
returned the girl bluntly. “I saw her
running across the lawn shortly after
your arrival. She went toward the
Elsie’s eyes sparkled dangerously at
this evidence of the perfidy of the
trusted Louise. She turned to the
staring servant with a gesture of dis
missal and when she was alone pro
ceeded to dress for the approaching
When her golden hair was gathered
into its customary soft knot and she
had slipped into the white chiffon
dress Elsie drew forth the string of
pearls and clasped it about her slender
throat. Without pausing to admire the
charming effect she made a care
ful search of the room. The chair
near the open window must furnish
the first clew, and Elsie was not dis
There was a tattered bit of lace evi
dently torn from a cheap handkerchief
—a fragment from which dangled a
bit of gold set with a drop of emerald
green—and the lace smelled of that
dreadful French scent which Louise
persisted in using.
On the floor near the chair was a
white silk handkerchief twisted into
a loose knot. Elsie lifted it gingerly
and inspected a few Japanese charac
ters in dead black across one corner.
The characters were too large for a
laundry mark and must represent the
owner’s name, and that owner was
probably a Japanese. Elsie recollect
ed that the Ormonds had a butler of
that nationaliay.
Last of all, on the seat of the chair
was a man’s pearl cuff link, on the
flat surface of which a golden initial
was finely inlaid. Elsie studied the
twisted “V” with a little puzzled
frown knitting her brows. Why had
Harvey Yentnor’s name sprung so
quickly to her mind in such an un
pleasant connection. Perhaps it was
because he was never far from her
thoughts or for the reason that there
are few names that begin with the
letter V, not that for one instant he
might be associated with anything
that was dishonorable.
The dinner bell rang then, and Elsie
obeyed its summons, first taking pains
to hide her jewel case in the remotest
corner of her wardrobe. She went re
luctantly down the broad stairs con
scious that this visit she had antici
pated must be inaugurated by the un
pleasant features surrounding a jewel
robbery. While she realized that the
thief must be making a successful es
cape and that every moment lost
strengthened the difficulty of capture,
Elsie hesitated to disturb the equa
nimity of her genial host, now in
one of the happiest moods. Near
the drawing room door two men were
talking In low tones, and as Elsie
passed one of them was saying: “I
heard Ventnor was hard hit today.
That drop in X. and Z. must have
crippled him.”
Elsie bit her trembling lips in an
angry effort to gain composure. She
hated herself for the lightning
thought that had connected Ventnor’s
pecuniary difficulties with the pearl
cuff link and the missing emeralds.
In that instant she vowed to seek no
further for the thief. The Halliday
emeralds must go.
"You look troubled, dear,” whispered
Mabel Ormond in her ear. “Has any
thing gone wrong?”
“Everything is lovely,” smiled Elsie
brightly. “How dear of you to give
me the rose room!”
“I knew you were charmed with it
last year. Ah, Katuru is a little late
tonight. Rather unusual in our im
peccable Japanese.”
It was not Harvey Ventnor who
took Elsie in to dinner; she heard his
voice at the end of the procession as
she walked in beside young Fred Or
mond, Dick’s brother. When she sat
down Ventnor was opposite, listening
attentively to the chatter of some
strange girl. Elsie’s swift glance
noted his slightly disheveled appear
ance, and then she saw with a sink
ing of the heart that the sleeve link
was gone from one of his cuffs—the
left one. The other, plainly visible,
was of pearl inlaid with gold.
Ventnor, watching her now and
then, seemed to be aware of hei sud
den coldness toward him. A hard
look settled around his pleasant lips,
and his sunny eyes clouded.
To Elsie it was a miserable dinner,
and it dragged to a tedious close while
her overstrained nerves seemed on the
point of giving way altogether. She
resolved to plead Illness and return to
New York the next morning. Vent
nor’s presence made it impossible for
her to remain.
After dinner she had fled to the con
servatory for seclusion, and it was
Board of Trade.
At the meeting Monday evening two
amendments of the Constitution were
1, To establish 7 members as a quo
rum instead of 15, and—
2, To reduce the number of Direct

there that Ventnor found her seated In
a dusky corner under arching palms.
When she saw him she arose with a
little frightened sob.
“Why—why are you here?” she de
manded brokenly.
“Am I so distasteful to you?” he |
asked, stopping short. “You have not
led me to believe so.”
“I did—you do not understand—what
has happened today—must always
stand between us.”
He stared incredulously, boldly, at
her. “You cannot possibly mean that
my rumored failure on the street has
affected your feeling toward me?” he
asked scornfully.
“No, oh, no! How could you believe
a little thing like that would make any
difference to me? I mean this!” Elsie
brought forth the pearl sleeve link
and held it toward him in her rosy
“You found this? It is mine. I thank
you,” he said gravely, slipping the link
into his cuff and still holding her with
his questioning gaze.
“It was in my room—on the chair
where my dressing bag had been. You
see”—she turned away her head so
that she might not see his face—“you
see, my emeralds were stolen tonight
from that very bag!”
“Ah!” There were anger and con
demnation in his rapid glance before
It turned to tender amusement. “And
you have spoken to no one regarding
the matter?”
She turned eagerly. “Not a soul. I
shall never breathe a word. Only I
hope I shall never see yon again! How
could you?”
"You mean, how could I rob the girl
I loved best in the world?” he asked
Ventnor took her hands in his and
compelled her to return his straight
look. “Do you love me, Elsie?” he
“Yes,” she said.
He released her hands and offered
his arm.
“My poor little detective, come with
me to Ormond. He has something to
show you.”
In the housekeeper’s room a little
group of people were centered about
the table. There were Dick Ormond
and his wife, Louise; Katuru, the but
ler, and a strange, heavy set man with
keen eyes. They turned with one ac
cord as Elsie entered with Ventnor.
“Miss Halliday,” began Dick Or
mond soberly, “this has been rather
an exciting evening for some of us—
would have been for you only Mabel

White and shaking, Elsie stretched
forth her hand and received the green
ripple of flame from Ormond. From
one end of the chain a stone was miss
“I knew It,” she said in a low tone.
“I discovered their loss before dinner.
I was going ta tell you about it, only
I” She hesitated.
“She discovered a clew,” added Vent
fior calmly—“this.” He laid the sleeve
ink on the table.
“And other clews,” said Elsie hur
riedly, telling her story now without
Then the short man spoke with au
thority. “Very easily explained, Miss
Halliday. Your maid had unpacked
your trunk, and the butler, here, in the
absence of another servant was remov
ing the trunk to the storeroom. A man
stepped through the open window, slit
open your dressing bag, extracted the
jewel case, from which he took the em
eralds, replaced the case in the bag
and was escaping through the win
dow when your maid, returning, discov
ered him, alarmed the butler and Mr.
Ventnor, who was passing through the
hall, and the three of them straggled
to hold him. He was a husky chap
and desperate, and they had a fight for
it, each one leaving some evidence of
the contest. Now, Mr. Ormond, with
your permission I’ll take my fine gen
tleman along!”
He strode to a door and threw it
open, revealing in a shallow closet the
sullen, downcast face of the Halliday
“Henry!” Miss Halliday’s lovely face
was a reflection of passing emotions
as she realized that the chauffeur had
followed in the wake of her journey
to rob her; that the valiant little
Louise, who was Henry’s sweetheart,
had captured him for the sake of loy
alty to her mistress; and was even now
crying her pretty eyes out over his
degradation. Elsie swept all barriers
aside and knelt down beside her weep
ing maid.
“Poor little Louise,” she whispered
softly. “You are far braver than I. I
could never have done what you have
today. Your reward will come later.
My father will investigate, and if it is
Henry’s first offense it may be possible
for you to marry and start afresh
somewhere with the dot I shall pro
Thus comforted, Louise dried her
tears and was taken to dinner by
Katuru, while the police officer Or
mond had summoned took Ms prisoner
away. The Ormonds went back to
their guests, and Elsie slipped away
in their train.
At the drawing room door Ventnor
1 placed his hand in hers and drew her
unresisting into the conservatory.
"You said you loved me,” he said
“I do,” said Elsie humbly, “but I
cannot expect you to value such an
affection as I have displayed tonight.”
“The reason you fastened suspicion
so strongly upon me was a simple one,
dearest. It was really because your
heart was so filled with thoughts of
me that there was no room to suspect
anybody else. lam flattered —indeed” —
“Oh, you are generous, Harvey.
Would you want to marry me now?”
“If you will have me,” said Ventnor

Official Report of the Typhoid
Dr. C. W. G. Rohrer, Assistant Chief
of the State Bureau of Communicable
Diseases, made report last Monday to
Dr. Marshall L. Price, Secretary of the
State Department of Health, of his
investigation here as follows :
“In Frostburg, Allegany county, I
found a localized outbreak of typhoid
fever, occurring principally on two
streets —Mill street and McCulloh
“Twenty-eight cases of typhoid fe
ver were reported in Frostburg on No
vember Ist. Out of the 28 cases, 20
occurred on the above streets.
“Each of these infected areas is lo
cated on a pretty steep hillside, at the
bottom of which runs an open drain
which eventually becomes the so
called gas-house drain.
“Steps have already been taken to
cover this drain, which is the proper
thing to do,
“The gas-house drain and its tribu
taries have had something to do with
the present typhoid fever situation in
Frostburg, but the greatest danger
lies in the infected soil of these two
areas —the Mill-street area and the
McCulloh-street area. For some years
typhoid fever has been endemic in
these sections of the city of Frost
burg, and the soil is infected.
“The Mill-street area is located
against a very steep hillside. At the
top of this hill lives a family in which
the original case of typhoid fever oc
curred. In four years there have been
five cases in this family.
“The entire hillside has become in
fected from the buried stools.
“At the present time, and the close
of the typhoid season, very little can
be done except correct the bad drain
age. Next May or June all the resi
dents of these two infected areas
should be given anti-typhoid vaccine,
which will confer an immunity upon
these residents until time and certain
sanitary measures will have destroyed
the typhoid bacilli buried in the soil.
“Water, milk, etc., have no bearing
upon the present Frostburg cases.
Possibly a few of them may be at
tributed to direct contagion or con

An Enjoyable Anniversary.
David H. Plummer, of New Shaft,
one of the Consolidation Coal Com
pany’s best machinists, was born
somewhere between Clarysville and
Pompey Smash November 15, 1855.
He is an estimable citizen, enjoy
ing popular esteem and the love of a
good family’.
These feelings found expression
Wednesday 7 —the day he was 56 years
old, in a conspiracy between his fel
low-workers, neighbors and his family.
In fact, they “put it up on him” in
surprising style when he found that
he had not only been appointed re
ceiver-general, but had to “go on
duty” at once, for nothing can delay
a reception, once it has begun.
But he played his part finely. He
bade all a hearty welcome, extending
“the glad hand” to Mr. and Mrs. Con
rad Brode, Mr. and Mrs. Abraham
Park, Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Grindel,
Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Baker, Mr.
and Mrs. Thomas Price, Mr. and Mrs.
Thomas R. Grindel, Mr. and Mrs.
Joseph E. Rephann and daughter—
Miss Dorothy, Mr. and Mrs. M. T.
Cooper, and Mr. Andrew Engle and
daughter—Miss Ruth.
Those of his own household who
helped him make all feel at home were
his happy wife—Mrs. Charlotte E.
Plummer, Charles H. Plummer,
George Plummer, Ausbie Plummer,
Oscar Plummer, D. H. Plummer, jr.,
and Custer Plummer—sous, and Miss
Effie Plummer—daughter.
The company enjoyed a variety of
entertainments. Miss Ruth Engle
played beautifully upon the piano; J.
E. Rephann furnished several pretty
piano selections with mouth-organ ac
companiment, and Messrs. Oscar
Plummer, pianist, and Ausbie Plum
mer, violinist, did some splendid in
strumental co-operation.
Then the supper—unlike the Hi
dalgo’s dinner of very little meat and
much tablecloth, here was a wealth of
manly substantial and ladylike luxur
ies—all enjoyed to the limit.
Not the least interesting of Mr.
Plummer’s entertainment was his ex
hibition of clock-work in his parlor,
applied to a number of fanciful uses.
In this line he is a genius.
Altogether, he is a gentleman for
whom one can cordially wish many,
