HENRY F. COOK, Manager. FROSTBURG, MD. - - NOV. 18, 1911. # % jjj Personal. % m mm m *?' W. E. G. Hitchins, Road Director elect, attended the Taft-day exercises in Frederick Wednesday. Edward Lewis and family, of Den ver, Col., is a guest of his parents— Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Lewis, of Maple street. Mrs. Jonathan Jenkins and two daughters, of Van Lear, Ky., are win ter guests of Mrs. J’s parents—Mr. and Mrs. Edward Bradley, Beall street. C. C. Gorsuch, of Westminster, this State, president of the Savage Moun tain Fire-Brick Company, was the guest last Sunday of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Caldwell. William Thompson, Mayor of Lona coning, and County Commissioner elect, and W'illiam Albright, of same place, circulated among friends here last Sunday. Earl Enlow, of Mountain Lake, Garrett county, guest of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Fresh, Broadway, a few days, left Wednesday to visit friends in Harrisburg, Pa. Messrs. Leo. Stapleton, Earl Dilley and Gus. W. M. Zeller drove to Grants ville last Sunday and were guests of the gentleman last named and his ac complished wife for dinner. Oliver Boyer, a venerable resident of the Keyser (W. Va.) neighborhood, here recently for a couple of days, told his friends he remembers well the frame house in which Robert and Mary McCulloh went to housekeeping, and in which his old friend, Robert C. McCulloh, was born in 1810. A card from W. L. Hamilton, of Mt. Savage, in New York, states that he has “not yet run across any of your ■potes,’ but may before I get through.” He is evidently on the trail of the New-York member of the Journal’s trio —C. B. Ryan. Not so easy hunt ing, however, as in Grantsville and E. L- Betz’s store. Charles A. Mann, of the clerical force of the Piedmont & Georges Creek Coal Company, this place, left Wed nesday fora two-weeks sojourn among friends and relatives at Piney Grove and Hancock, this State. Mr. Mann will return with his wife and little daughter, who have been visiting at the latter place for the past three weeks. Charley expects to do some hunting while on the trip and it is the hope of many friends that he will also bring back some other “deer” with him. HENRY HORN’S TACT. Why He Was Always Selected to Break Painful Tidings. In the second week of his pastorate in a west side chapel the new min ister appointed Henry Horn to make a soothing address to a band of the par ish’s insurgent workmen. The pastor had never met Henry Horn, because Henry seemed a hard man to corner for a personal interview, but a study of church records had convinced him that Henry possessed infinite tact and was just the man for the delicate mis sion. The day after he wrote appris ing Henry of the new duty laid upon him Henry’s wife appeared, pale with apprehension. “It’s out of the question,” she said. *Henry can’t talk to anybody.” "But he’s just the man who can do it,” said the pastor. “I chose him for his tact.” “Tact?” said she. “Yes, tact. The church papers show that last year eight men in the parish who were engaged in hazardous occu pations suffered a fatal accident, and in each case Henry Horn was appoint ed to inform the family of their loss. If he had not been a tactful man he would not have been chosen.” “Oh,” said she, “it wasn’t on account of his tact; it was his stuttering. It took Henry so long to tell it that the folks found out there was something the matter before he got to the point and were saved the shock of hearing it suddint.”—Philadelphia Ledger. Another Way Out. In one of Glasgow’s finely laid out cemeteries a rich citizen, who was no torious as a skeptic, had erected a massive mausoleum on what he terms “his ancestral plot.” One day he met a worthy elder of the kirk coming away from the vicinity of the impos ing mass of masonry, so he said to him, “Weel, Dauvit, ye’ve been up see in’ that gran’ erection o’ mine?” “Deed hlv I, sir.” “Gey strong place that, isn’t it? It’ll tak’ a mon a’ his time tae raise out o’ yon at the day o’ judgment.” “Hoot, ma mon,” said David, “ye can gie yerself little fash aboot risin’ gin that day comes. They’ll tak’ the bottom oot of it tae let ye fa’ doon.” Anxious. She—You'll just kill yourself smok ing, John! He—Yes, but think of the coupons, dear. “But will they take them for funeral expenses, John?”—Yonkers Statesman. Enjoys Their Torture. Slimm—Our landlady says she likes to see her boarders have good appe tites. Smart—Well, some women are natu rally cruel.—Boston Transcript. Worthy of Praise. It was reported in the City Council, Cumberland, Monday evening, that E. Lee Shaw, collector, had accom plished the unprecedented feat of collecting and paying into the treasury the entire taxes for three years! Mr. Shaw is a son-in-law of Perry Weimer, Frostburg’s senior justice cf the peace. TOLSTOY WAuTZD ELOOD. His Quarrel With T urgeneff and the Reconciliation That Followed. Raymond Recouly in the Paris Fi garo gives the following account of an early encounter between Tolstoy and Turgeneff, which shows the Rus sian sage in a different frame of mind from the one in which the world has since come to know him: It was on the estate of his friend, the poet Fet, near Yasnaya. Turgeneff was among the invited guests. The hostess inquired after his daughter, who was being reared in France. Turgeneff spoke highly of his Eng lish governess. “With a truly British exactitude,” he said, "she requested jne to fix the sum which my daughter might spend for charity. And now she teaches her pupil to mend the ragged clothes of the poor.” “And you consider that a good thing?” asked Tolstoy. “Certainly,” replied the other. "It brings the benefactor into direct con tact with the persons whom he is helping.” “On my part, I think that a well dressed child who handles dirty and ill smelling rags is playing a hypo critical and theatrical farce.” “I must ask you not to speak in this way,” exclaimed Turgeneff, with menacing looks. - “Why should I not say what I am convinced is the truth?” remarked Tolstoy. “You think, then, that I am educat ing my daughter badly,” and, while Fet was interceding, "If you will talk in that way I shall box your ears.” Then he left the room, begging his hosts to pardon his abrupt departure. Tolstoy also went. At the neighbor ing station he wrote to Turgeneff de manding an apology. He ordered pis tols and tried to provoke his rival to a duel. Turgeneff’s answer, very digni fied, brought the apology demanded by Tolstoy. He closed by saying that he thought it best that two men with such opposite tempers should hence forth break off all relations. Tolstoy, carried away by his anger (it was in 1861), declined to be satisfied with such an answer. He felt that he had been gravely offended. He demanded reparation by arms. He therefore re peated his provocations. His friend Fet, who attempted to pacify him. succeeded only in drawing from him this vigorous reply: “I beg of you henceforth not to write to me any more. I shall return your letters un opened, the same as I do with Turge neff’s.” After these occurrences Turge neff returned to France, where he passed the greater part of his time. Some months later, on reflection, Tol stoy regretted his violence. Seized with remorse, he sent Turgeneff a let ter asking his pardon. “I find it ex ceedingly painful,” he wrote, “to think that I have made an enemy of you.” Turgeneff forgave, as one may im agine, but the complete and definitive reconciliation took place much later. OLD ENGLISH HOUSES. In the Days of Wooden Huts, Thatched Roofs and Clay Floors. The habitations of English common people for centuries consisted of a wooden hut of one room, with the fire built in the center. To this hut, if a man increased in family and wealth, a lean-to was added and later another and another. The roofs were of thatch, the beds of loose straw or straw beds with bolsters of the same laid on the floor or perhaps eventually shut in by a shelf and ledge like the berths of a ship or by a small closet. The Saxon thane or knight built a more pretentious “hall,” a large open room like the Roman atrium with a lofty roof thatched or covered with slates or wooden shingles. In the cen ter of the hard clay floor burned great fires of dry wood whose thin acrid smoke escaped from openings in the roof, above the hearth or by the doors, windows and openings under the eaves of the thatch. By day the “hearthsmen” and vis itors when not working or fighting sat on long benches on either side of the fire and, as John Hay puts it, "calmly drinked and jawed” or, gathering at long boards placed on trestles, regal ed themselves on some sort of porridge with fish and milk or meat and ale. At night straw or rushes spread on the floor formed beds for the entire company in the earlier and ruder days, when the “baser sort” were glad to share their straw with the cows.— Charles Winslow Hall in National Magazine. Tha Cabal. The term “cabal” as applied to se cret factions of any kind had its rise in England about 1667, being first ap plied to the cabinet of Charles 11. and formed from the initials of the cabi net members’ names—Lord Clifford, Lord Ashley, the Duke of Bucking ham, Lord Arlington and the Duke of Lauderdale—C, A, B, A, L Since that day it has been customary, in all English speaking lands at least, to ap ply the name to any secret conclave, especially in politics. The Way She Saw It. “You must not mock people. Hazel. Once upon a time, the Bible says, a crowd of little children mocked a good man named Elisha, and two bears came out of the forest and killed for ty-two of them.” “Wasn’t that an awful thing for their mothers?”—Newark News. Useless Telling. “You can always tell an English man,” said the Briton proudly. “Of course you can,” replied the Yankee, “but it doesn’t do any good, because he thinks he knows it all.”— Philadelphia Ledger. Have Confidence In Your Goods. The dealer should train himself and his clerks to learn the good points of everything new that he has for sale and to offer it repeatedly to customers whether they make inquiry for it or not. Fight For Your Home Trade. To combat the catalogue house com petition the retail dealer should en deavor to sell customers a better grade cf goods at about the same as the cat alogue house prices. Business Locals. Saved Many from Death. W. L. Mock, of Mock, Ark., believes he has saved many lives in his 25 years of experience in the drug busi ness. “What I always like to do,” he writes, “is to recommend Dr. King’s New Discovery for weak, sore lungs, hard colds, hoarseness, obsti nate coughs, la grippe, croup, asthma or other bronchial affection, for I feel sure that a number of my neighbors are alive and well to-day because they took my advice to use it. I honestly believe it’s the best throat and lung medicine that’s made.” Easy to prove he’s right. Get a trial bottle free, or regular 50 cents or $1 bottle. Guar anteed by all druggists. Many sufferers from nasal catarrh say they get splendid results by using an atomizer. For their benefit we prepare Ely’s Liquid Cream Balm. Except that it is liquid it is in all re spects like the healing, helpful, pain allaying Cream Balm that the public has been familiar with for years. No cocaine nor other dangerous drug in it. The soothing spray is a remedy that relieves at once. All druggists, 75 cents, including spraying tube, or mailed by Ely Bros., 56 Warren street, New York. Differences. Mrs. Hetty Green, a venerable widow, says “it’s a pity to joke when you have work to do,” but if she lived in Eckhart instead of New York, she would say—“it’s apitj r ” to look in the dictionary, etc. Mrs. Green says also that she “feels so good that she could do a skirt dance,” but she should remember that all girls do not wear the sa:ne skirt. Ready For a Splurge. A girl who inherited a snug little fortune of $12,000 had been rather cramped financially all her life, and she had always longed for the luxuries and frivolities of existence. Her uncle came to talk the matter over and ad vise her as to the Investment of her little fortune. “Now, my dear,” said he in the tone of a genial but prudent counselor, “of course you have made some plans —have some idea of how this is to be invested? What yearly income do you expect from your $12,000?” Then the young woman replied, “I expect, dear uncle, to Invest my money so that I shall have a yearly income of $24,000 for six months.” A Vital Question. Cumberland is enlarging one of it’s hospitals—to make more room, partly, for Frostburg patients. Meanwhile, it must be a trying strain on a sick woman or man to be hauled 11 or 17 miles for medical or surgical repair. Why not a hospital closer to the homes of Frostburg patients ? Don’t Suffer from Headache. Get a bottle of Dill’s Little Liver Pills. They quickly relieve Constipa tion, Indigestion and Billiousness—the cause of the great majority of head aches —and restore the stomach and bowels to their natural working order. They cure Foul Breath and clean out the entire system. Pleasant to take; sure to work. 25 cents. *4 | THE HALL OF FAME. 1 ¥ EDGAR ALLAN POE-Cele- I X brated poet and short story writ- X X s* M Born B °s- x J> f|?Jf 1840.

Sloan, Chair man, and Lewis A. Newton, Secreta ry, Lonaconing, have issued and cir culated a letter stating that— “ The recent Farmers’ Festival held at Lonaconing has demonstrated that to properly further the Agricultural and Horticultural interests of Garrett and Allegany counties, an organiza tion should be formed by those inter ested —the farmers, gardeners, and other citizens who desire to advance the welfare of the tillers of the soil. “It has been proven beyond all doubt that these two counties have all the advantages of the most favored sec tions of the country for the production of fruits, grains, and vegetables. What is required is more education along advanced lines. The old meth ods will not avail in this day. “To do this, we should unite for mutual benefit. “In order to effect such an organi zation a meeting will be held in Lona coning Friday, November 24, 1911, at 1 o’clock p. m., in Firemen’s Hall. “You and your neighbor are urgent ly invited to attend.” Frostburg should be numerously and vigorously represented.

Perdew is reputed an able, 2 impartial, fearless attorney —one who will do his duty without fear or favor. , George A. Reinhard will enter and r continue in office as custodian of the ’ people’s money absolutely free of ob - ligation to any place of deposit, and those who know him say he is “a man of his word.” William Thompson, a dozen times Maj'or of Lonaconing; Walter T. Parker, elected by both parties, and John G. Merrbach, an incorruptible citizen, combine to make in the Coun g ty Commissioners’ office another in stance of “commission form”—one good first-class man, multiplied by three. The way that H. W. Shuck ran for Register of Wills indicates that con -3 siderably over half of the 8251 people r who voted must have-gone into his j office, looked at his books and scanned 3 hand-writing that will be legible cen -3 turies hence. William P. Close and P. D.

So far as f each has gone he has been successful and the community owes much to the one as a promoter and to the other as an exemplar. Assuming that Messrs. s B. F. Middleton and J. J. Lydinger ’ are equally enterprising the county has another “commission form” to in -1 sure good results. s There is positively nothing against r William Harvey, County Surveyor, ex cept that on one cloudy day he got too 2 far from his compass in Cranberry Swamp. He would never admit it in so many words, but he has always made out that it was the compass—not 1 himself, who was lost for several hours. 2 Altogether—in primary and in the 1 general election, the Journal believes the people have equipped themselves ' with a competent and effective w6rk * ing force for service during the next j two years. 4 Died. > After a painful illness-of over two > months of typhoid fever at the family ' home, 33 Washington street, Monday, > November 13, 1911, Miss Mary Loretta > Healy, in the 26th year of her age.

The High Ball Foot Class of the Great Right-Hand Opening School came up Fi'iday afternoon of last week touched cross-ups with the corres ponding bunch of communicants in the Beall Way-Up Qcademy. The score was 0 to 11, Nick Metsger winning on two down-taps made by Captain Hamill. It is reported that if the Eonacon ing team hadn’t kicked and passed backwards so well the score would have been 23 to the plural of Nick, in stead of 11. Accidentally, nobody got hurt, though 22 communicants were im periled. A boy was killed last Saturday in a football game in Wisconsin, but the newspapers out there treated it as “an incident of the sport.” On the same day a strike-breaker was killed in New York, but the news papers reported it as “a crime.” Wherein morally does “the incident” differ from the “crime?” The Preyser Keps will be here this (Saturday) afternoon for a scrouge, and some fear is felt that the High Beall class of backward-pass com municants cannot leave the freak-goal dodge in time to get one-fourth back. The other time, when the Keps won by 23 to 0, it is said that one quarter got a full backache. For One Year.

Rev. Edw. C.

At this service, however, the cere mony of “burning the mortgage” will be a gratifying number of the hour’s programme. Other special features, including music, will make the occa one of unusual religious interest. At 7 % o’clock, the evening hour, the ... ' ' ’ N ... V FIRST ENGLISH BAPTIST CHURCH. pastor—Rev. B. F.

Meanwhile, the latter will not forget the pastor’s own tireless effort to effect the same good purpose during his comparatively short period of oppor tunity.

The management should be en couraged in securing such produc tions. The characters were repre sented by persons well fitted for their several parts. The dramatization has, in no way, mutilated the story—as is too often the ease in such plays. All the principal scenes are faithfully reproduced.
