George Stern left Monday evening
for New York City to canvass that
town for goods wherewith to clothe
and make Frostburg ladies yet more
beautiful.
A note from W. L. Hamilton, of Mt.
Savage, contains the report that
“While in New York last week I en
joyed the pleasure of meeting William
Arthur and Emery G. Hitchins, of
Frostburg. ’ ’
John Jeffries, of Belt, Montana, is
the guest of his brother—Alfred, of
this place. He left Frostburg “Thirty
Years Ago,” went to Montana and is
a hustling factor in the mining de
velopment of that State.
William A. Atkinson, one of Lona
coning’s cleverest business gentlemen,
was in the metropolis Tuesday.
Talked modern light and heat with
Thomas H. Morgan, bought a cigar at
Pearce’s, and told the Journal that it
takes longer now to make $5 at print
ing than it did “Thirty Years Ago.”
J. W. Dils, of Philadelphia, was
here Wednesday visiting Mr. and Mrs.
C. H. Walker. He told the Journal
he had given Frostburg a section of
the latter end of a round-trip to West
Virginia, whither he had gone on the
strength of a ground-hog report to
look for snakes under the gorgeous
huckleberry foliage of Cheat moun
tain. But the mountain, true to its
name, had bamboozled him.
Fell On The Ice.
On ground-hog day, “Thirty Years
Ago,” in Baltimore, according to the
News , of that city, Miss Kate Claxton,
the renowned actress, born near Cres
aptown, this county, then “playing at
Holliday-Street Theatre, fell on the
ice at Lexington and Calvert streets
and slid into the gutter, which was
filled with water. She was rescued by
a reporter of the News."
Fine Time Ahead.
Next Tuesday evening is destined
to be a red-letter time for the elite of
Eckhart.
The following invitation explains
itself:
“Yourself and company are cordial
ly invited to attend a Box Social to be
held in the Jr. O. U. A. M. hall, Eck
hart, Tuesday, February 13, 1912.
“A splendid program will be ren
dered.
“The ladies will bring a lunch and
hot coffee will be served at the hall.
Come and bring your friends and we
will guarantee all a good time.
“Committee.”
Everyone who is fortunate enough
to get one of these invitations will be
expected to be present, as the com
mittee is working hard to make this
the greatest and best social function
ever held in this section.
The hall will be beautifully decor
ated, as a decorator of some note has
been engaged for this particular work.
The young men who compose the
committee have evolved a program
that is edifying, instructive and pleas
ing. It embraces music—vocal and
instrumental, readings, recitations
and a few well-chosen words will be
said by one of Eckhart’s best talkers.
It will be a veritable “feast of reason
and flow of soul,” and the welcome
accorded the guests will be as wide
as the earth and as warm as the sun.
The ladies who are expected to
bring the lunch will be there with the
quality noblesse and quantity in'pro
fusion.
Go ye—all who are invited.
Business Movements.
A booklet from the “Idaho Red River
Gold Mining Company” is an attract
ive statement of mining profits out in
that country. It is an offer of stock
for funds to make some indispensable
additions to equipment, but, all taken,
it is said there is none now for sale at
any price. James A. Saurbaugh, of
Spokane, Washington, a Frostburg
boy, is one of 13 directors.
C. M. Mench, post-office official of
Washington, D. C., was here several
days ago upon an investigating tour
and found everything absolutely all
right except the proposition to build
the first story underground.

ly an aid of A. E. Reppert, assistant
manager of the Consolidation Coal
Company, has been promoted by ap
pointment to office of Inspector of the
Company’s Maryland Division, vice

Morgan is regarded as a very capable
man for the position.
The Weather.
The weather prophet of Rileyville,
Va., told the Luray News-Courier that
“the first week in February promises
extreme cold,” and named the 2d, 3d
and 4th as specialties. He could have
added the Sth very appropriately.
Accident in a Mine.
Daniel Porter, assistant foreman of
Consolidation Coal Company’s mine
No. l,was squeezed between a car and
a prop Wednesday and painfully
though not seriously hurt. He was

Base-Ball.
MIDLAND
The directors of the Midland base
ball park held their annual meeting
last Wednesday, 7th inst.; the ac
counts were gone over for the season
of 1911; a dividend of 10 per cent, was
declared, and a goodly sum was kept
in the treasury for the necessary re
pairs that will have to be made in the
spring.
The president, Thomas McFarland,
will call a meeting of the stockholders
the latter part of this month to elect
officers and a manager for the coming
season.
The financial showing is particular
ly good, although the playing of the
team was not as good as in previous
seasons; consequently the attendance
was poor. The directors are deter
mined, however, to get a good bunch
together early as possible and make
every endeavor to establish the Mid
land team as one of the very best on
Georges Creek. More about the per
sonnel of the team later.

My Valentine.
Dear, precious Louise, will you be
mine ?
If so, come and be my Valentine !
I’ll buy you candy, I’ll buy you wine,
If you’ll sweetly say—“l will be
thine !”
O, Louise, answer my question soon,
So we can go on our honeymoon !
We’ll go to Wildwood in a balloon
To get that promised New Jersey
spoon!
We’ll have some nobby wedding-cakes,
too,
All strung up with Victor’s Le Bongoo ;
And we’ll march in the church, two
by two,
Up the aisle—right by your mamma’s
pew !
I will wear a black swaller-tail coat,
While you’ll be in white up to the
throat;
And if you think it’ll be entirely right,
We’ll be married in the early night.
For a wedding-march we’ll have a
hymn
Entitled—“ Come All, It Is No Sin”
To admire a girl who has no tin,
But who, with you, in love tumbles in.
O, won’t you give me your answer
soon ?
Quick ! I say, or I shall surely swoon !
Say yes—O, yes ! and won’t that be
fine ?
For then I’ll know you’re my
Valentine!

, You can’t get money at a bank by
forging a newspaper man’s name. Of
course you can’t, of course you can
not. Don’t you attempt it, don’t you
attempt it—(except on the “great
paper” man of Frostburg)— Philip's
Boy.
The exception is quashed, little
one; otherwise,the Journal will hol

Getting Even.
Out in Morris county there is a man
who deals exclusively with mail-order
houses. He doesn’t buy anything
of the home merchants. It has really
become a mania with him. Recently
he decided to run for office, and he
went to a local merchant and asked
him to sign his primary petition.
“O let the mail order houses sign
it,” replied the merchant as he hand
ed it back without his signature

Bread Must Be Wrapped in Paper.
The authorities of North Yakima,
Washington, are pushing sanitation
to the top notch. Bread baked for
sale must be hereafter wrapped in par
affin paper before it leaves the bakery
kitchen, according to an amendment
to the old sanitary ordinance passed
recently by the city commission.
All other bakery products for distri
bution to other stores shall be so
wrapped or protected as to exclude
flies and dust.
Out-of-Towu Social.
The Ladies Mite Society of the First
English Baptist Church met at the
home of Mrs. Jenkin Daniel, Lord,
Md., Tuesday evening, the ladies go
ing as far as Blake’s on the car, where
Mrs. Daniel had two large sleighs
awaiting them. Thence they were
conveyed to her home, where, after
the regular business session, a social
time was indulged. Then Mrs. Daniel,
assisted by her niece, Miss Margaret
Daniel, served refreshments. At 11
o’clock the party, comprising the fol
lowing list was driven to the car-line:
Mesdames Edward Harvey, Richard
Gunter, Philip Offman, J ames Stewart,
Charles Thompson, James Anderson,
Edward Dufty, James Sleeman, Clar
ence Cook, and Misses Nellie Harvey,
Mary Gunter, Jean Loar, Sarah and

Chance for a Square Deal.
The Journal has frequently alluded
to the election law which confines reg
istration and election advertising for
the county to Cumberland papers!—a
discrimination which practically pro
hibits the publication of newspapers
outside the city!
It comes out now that in the law es
tablishing a commission form of gov
ernment in Cumberland, if the Jour
nal understands the American aright,
“everything is legislated into both
daily newspapers, even the bill intro
duced for the approaching primary
has the same saving clause for both
dailies .”
Then the American premises—“what
will happen if Cumberland ever does
secure a third daily paper is hard to
tell,” and then asks—“which two
would constitute ‘both?’ ”
County people, do you catch on to
the idea that somebody representing
you has enacted a law which declares
that your election officers shall not ad
vise you of your suffrage duties and
opportunities through a “ free press ”
nearest your homes?
And, latest, that some representa
tive of yours has been fooled into en
acting a law which discriminates
against the right of weekty newspapers
to live in Cumberland?
Who did these things, and at whose
instance were they done?
And do not your representatives now
“on duty” owe it to you and the “free
press” whose protection is guaranteed
by every Constitution in this country
to so amend that law that your patron
age can rightfully go to all alike?
A Cheering Meeting.
The Allegany County Baptist Sun
day School Association held its quar
! terly meeting Monday evening, Feb.
sth, in Mt. Zion Welsh Baptist Church,
this place.
There was a goodly attendance and
a lively interest taken in the exercises.
This association was recently or
ganized for the purpose of developing
and advancing the interests of the
Sunday Schools of the county, and
from the interest shown on this occa
sion the organizers are greatly en
couraged.
The consensus of opinion, as ex
pressed in the meeting, is to the ef
fect that the Sunday Schools, if they
would be successful, must use more
system and modern methods of teach
ing the pupils.
The School has not kept up with the
rapid march of progress along other
lines, and in order to modernize and
systematize the great work they ask
the hearty co-operation of all the
schools in the county. This must be
accomplished if the Association and
the Sunday School is to become the
power that they should.
“There are great fields of ripened
grain ready to be gathered in. Shall
we gather this golden grain or shall
we allow it to waste? To save it there
must be concerted action on the part
of every school and every individual
in the school.”
The program, as printed last week,
was rendered in a manner most enter
taining to all.

Bridge Luncheon in Florida.
A Jacksonville (Fla.) paper of re-,
cent date reports the following:
“Miss Catherine Hawkins, the popu- t
lar debutante daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Walter Hawkins, was the honoree r
at a beautiful bridge luncheon, which
Mrs. Samuel Dunlap gave yesterday
at 1 o’clock at her home in Riverside. r
“The tables were laid with hand- ;
some Madeira lunch cloths, centered }
with a pretty arrangement of pink
carnations and plumes. The hand- \
painted place cards bore figures of
dainty Japanese girls. After an c
elaborate course luncheon, a game of j
bridge was played. j
“Top scores were made by Miss
Alice Meggs and Miss Evelyn Rigney, .
who received pretty silk vanity bags,
and the honor guest was presented
with ahandsome souvenir of the
interesting game.
“Mrs. Dunlap’s guests, for the de
lightful afternoon were Miss Catherine
Hawkins, Miss Alice Meggs, Miss
Evelyn Rigney, Miss Eucy Bowden,
Miss Marguerite Carr, of Hoboken,
N. J.; Miss Nadia E’Engle, Miss Julia
•Beville, Miss Mae McMillan, and Mrs.
Violet Harris Powers, of Ocala.”
Mrs. Dunlap is one of Frostburg’s
fairest ladies—a daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. John N. Benson, and her contem- j
poraries here know that “the bridge
luncheon” was an up-to-date tender of
delightful hospitality.
The First Invitation.
While in Boston, Mass., recently
Miss Elizabeth Hitchins, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. W. E. G. Hitchins, of
this place, bought a pretty card in
scribed as follows: i
Come to ye Home-Town Celebration!
,We will tdrn Time’s Glass, and then
Bind his Scythe, and in elation
Just be Boys and Girls again!
She brought the card home, kept it
until Wednesday, then addressed it to
Miss Annie E. Coyner, 2233 East 10th
street, Indianapolis, Indiana, and.
mailed it.
The post-office force testifies that
this is the first open invitation to the '
Home-Coming that has gone out
through the mail.
It Wasn’t Edible Coal. <
The present winter has been a rec- ’
ord breaker in Washington so far as <
the weather and the high cost of liv- )
ing have been concerned. During the ’
recent blizzard many householders <
were caught, unprepared, dealers )
couldn’t begin to supply the sudden ’
demand, and coal wagons were all but <
raided on the streets. One morning ]
as Representative Roberts was on his ‘
way to catch a car for the Capitol he <
saw a coal wagon crunching through )
the snow a short distance ahead of him, *
the negro driver smoking a pipe and <
flapping his arms to keep warm. Just ’
as it got in front of a house a woman •
threw open a front window, thrust her <
head out, beckoned to the driver, and )
shouted: ’
“Hey! Is that coal for Eaton?” <
The negro took the pipe from his )
mouth and rolled up the whites of his ’
eyes with astonishment. He said: <
“Eord Gord, no’m; this here coal ,
aint fur eatin’ —it’s fur burnin’!”
Cold Down There.
Intelligence from Mr. and Mrs. Fred.
Wehfrer indicates that they encoun
tered, very unexpectedly, frost in
Jacksonville, Florida, last week. It
is reported that Fred, was so much as
tounded that he used the term,
“frost,” apparently as an expletive,
and had not his good wife intervened,
would have added “burg” instead of
“ville!”
She Knew.
At a recent election in a Virginia
town the sole issue was—“shall the
hog and hog-pen go out of town, or
remain?”
The people and the local editor lost.
The Jotjrnai, found this out from
reading a short dissertation by the
latter upon “The Intelligence of
Animals.”
One particular incident impressed
him:
“The day after election that old sow
of Mr. Payne’s was seen parading
Main street, taking the side-walk at
that.
