Among several items of interest sent to Journai, for entertainment of former students of Gettysburg (Pa.) College hereabout, the following seems to be the most engaging: Class of 1907 has agreed to pay for the wiring of old Pennsylvania Hall for electric light. This historic building is intimately associated with the events connected with the Battle of Gettysburg. Before the battle opened Generals Buford and Rey nolds, of the Union forces, used the tower of the building for observation purposes, and later General Lee, of the Confederates, did the same. After the first day’s battle this building was used as a Confederate hospital. Hun dreds of amputations and other sur gical operations were performed in the very rooms now occupied by the students of Gettysburg College. The Gettysburg Battlefield Commission are preparing an historical tablet to place on this building.” 8.-B. One manager has been placed in a hospital in Cincinnati, alleged to be insane. He has the hallucination that he is constantly at a ball game; and continually cheers for the home team, coaches the players, and, like Cum berland managers, believes his team wins every time, especially when on the home grounds. Fire-Brick and Little-Burning. As indicated last week, W. E. Hamil ton, of Mt. Savage, assigned to dis cussion of “Requirements in Fire- Brick for Lime-Kiln Arches and Lin ings,” in the program of the Tenth Annual Meeting of the National Lime Manufacturers’Association, New York City, acquitted himself very credit ably. In its report of the concluding meet ing on Friday, 2d inst., “Rock Pro ducts,” a daily newspaper devoted to Concrete and Manufactured Building Materials, says of Mr. Hamilton’s paper— “ This proved to be at once a very in structive and profitable document for the consideration of the lime manu facturers. It was more than a techni cal discourse, for Mr. Hamilton is a practical expert in the production of refractories, and acquainted with special needs of a majority of men in the audience. He treated the subject more as a heart-to-heart talk over one of the great problems of all processes that have to do with heat.” The discussion commendatory of the paper which followed was finally brought to a close by the president, who said “the fire-liner proposition is an endless subject—one that requires a whole lot of local treatment,” and called for the next paper. Helping the Home Merchant. A portion of our people seem disin clined to patronize the home merchant except when they can’t help it, says the Towson Democrat and Journal. “They will ask a grocer to deliver a yeast cake to their door. But when it comes to ordering a winter’s supply of canned goods, they write to some dis tant department store. “It should be needless to say that if everyone did thus we should have stores to rent and fewer opportunities for people to earn a living at home. “On the contrary, if we all bought everything possible at home, our stores could keep even better stocks. It is a great convenience to be able to make selections from a good line of goods at home. This becomes possible where everyone loyally supports the home merchants. “Under-such circumstances existing stores could do a larger business, em ploy more people, and new concerns would start. Every person owning real estate or a business here would see it grow more valuable. “Even the man with nothing would gain. There would be more property to tax, hence more public improve ments. With more money in circula tion our fraternal societies, churches, and clubs could serve the community more efficiently.”—Westminster (Md.) Advocate. Towson is very close to Baltimore, and the temptation to go to the city and buy is great. Nevertheless, the citizen of Towson who places fl of profits in a Balti more merchant’s hands makes a dif ference in favor of city wealth of $2. A dollar lost to Towson and a dol lar gained to Baltimore, compared and added, makes Baltimore $2 richer than Towson. If 1,000 citizens of Towson should do this 52 times a year, the difference in favor of the city would be $208,000. The same statement is true of other towns in the State—towns close to cities and to bigger towns. The result is—the bigger town al ways stays bigger, the smaller town always smaller. And the people of the smaller town, contributing to the bigness of the big ger town, are the same who keep their own town little. Without mention of names there are some in Frostburg. THIS IS CERTAIN. ♦ The Proof That Frostburg Read ers Cannot Deny. What could furnish stronger evi dence of the efficiency of any remedy than the test of time? Thousands of people testify that Doan’s Kidney Pills cure permanently. Home endorsement should prove undoubtedly the merit of the remedy. Years ago your friends and neighbors testified to the relief they had derived from the use of Doan’s Kidney Pills. They now confirm their testimonials. ' They say time has completed the test. Mrs. B. T. Schofield, 96 W. Main | street, Frostburg, Md., says: “For : many years I suffered from pains through my back and my limbs were so stiff and sore that I could hardly ! get around. The kidney secretions were in bad shape and I rested poorly i at night. When in that miserable condition, I procured a box of Doan’s Kidney Pills and they helped me at once. I have since told several other people about this effective kidney medicine.” (Statement given No vember 16, 1907.) a uater STATEMENT. Mrs. Schofield was interviewed by our representative on May 17, 1911, and she said: “I am pleased to verify . the public statement I gave in 1907, recommending Doan’s Kidney Pills. They certainly did good work in my case.” For sale by all dealers. Price 50 cents. Foster-Milburn Co., Buffalo, New York, sole agents for the United States. Remember the name—Doan’s—and take no other. A Fallen Star. The curtain is down and the throng has gone, And only silence stays; The flowers are dead, and the costumes worn, And critics forgot to praise. The music has stopped with a mournful wail— Yes, the past has left its scar, And the people who clapped in the bygone days Have forgotten the fallen star ! He sits alone in his little room ; His body is bent with age, And yet he loves what cast him down- Still cries again for the stage. And the old arms hold the make-up box— But listen ! again from afar He sees the light, the people his play, And he dies in his dream —a star ! And they bury the man in an unknown place; But the mourners ? ah, not one ! He played his part in the play of life, And quickly his part was done ! His life for his art he gave with a smile! (O, public, how fickle you are !) His old heart ached for the clap of your hands, And he died—just a fallen star ! Neeme w. Dies. A Progressive Club. The Lonaconing Civic Club has de cided to assume charge of the Art de partment of the Western Maryland Poultry Exhibit, to consist of em broideries, crocheting, knitting and similar womanly arts. Several other progressive move ments are reported, the most con spicuous a petition to Congress to adopt the mountain laurel as the National Flower. Delinquents. An observing West Virginia news paper says—• “That a man who squeezes a dollar never squeezes his wife.” How a few ladies whose husbands have not paid for the Journae must suffer for the endearments due them! State Normal School Bill. Private but reliable intelligence from Annapolis goes to effect that the bill, No. 54, introduced two weeks ago by Hon. Frank G. Metzger, of this place, providing for an appropriation to build a dormitory and make other additions to the State’s Normal School property here, is still in the hands of the Ways and Means Committee. Mr. Metzger hopes for a favorable report, and the impression is abroad here that his effort should be sup ported by all the strength that Frost burg people can muster. Letters to members of the Ways and Means Com mittee from prominent citizens will undoubtedly help a good thing through. These are Hon’s — Ogle Marbury, Chairman, Jas. A. Dawkins, Wm. O. Thomas, John E. Taylor, Archer H. Jarrett, Elmer E. Cook, Calvin B. Taylor, Benj. Watkins, W. E. Percy, Peter L. Hargett, W. T. Warburton. Messrs. Marbury and Warburton are, respectively, the democratic and republican floor-leaders of the House. Write urgently and strongly to either, or to any member of the Committee in behalf of the bill. || A MEDICINE CHEST II IN A BOTTLE ■ .

Higher Education. “What has your boy learned at school this session?” “He has learned that he’ll have to be vaccinated, that his eyes are not mates, and that his method of breath ing' is entirely obsolete.” —Washing- ton Herald. Another “Daniel Come to Judgment.” Eckhart has one big fat boy and one little lean boy. The big fat boy is amiable ; the lit tle lean boy is ill-natured. The little lean boy threatened the other day to “lick” the big fat boy, alleging some frivolous grouch. The friends of the big fat boy pro posed to the friends of the little lean ' boy a trial of the latter’s complaint. Agreed to, and a judge friendly to both was selected. The case was duly opened and the first witness testified that the little lean boy carried concealed weapons. “Where does he carry them ?” asked the judge. “In his pockets,” replied the witness. “What are they?” asked the judge. “His fists !” exclaimed the witness. The judge called the two boys to the front and commanded each to lay a fist on the desk, side by side. He looked at the two “prehensiles,” • carefully compared them, and with truly judicial deliberation announced: “Case dismissed ! One of these fists is too big to be concealed, and the other is too little to be called a weapon !” It Pays to Advertise. The community which does not ad vertise its resources is never heard from and the same is true of a business. The railroads understand this and they keep everlastingly at it, for they know that to wait until the people begin moving around the country is too late to catch the business. To wait until the people start out to do the shopping is too late for the merchant to do any good for himself. Advertising is to direct the attention of the people toward a community or a mercantile establishment and to attract popular ■ interest toward some particular thing. | The people go to the store of which they have heard and the name of I which is within their minds and it is the off-season advertising that counts > in the building up of a busimess ) Billings Gazette. ) The foregoing paragraph, like sev ) eral others in this issue, was sent to > the Journat, for publication.

Maryland vi The Blessing of Beadj Ml! Promptness in the payment of small debts, as well as large ones, will contribute at all seasons to the comfort of everybody, but more especially now, in the beginning of the year, when there are few who do not have something to pay or to re ceive. “Money Makes the Mare Go” is an old proverb, originating very likely on the turf. It also makes business go in all its depart ments. Ready cash is the one essential, and when it circulates freely, from hand to hand, in the dis charge of obligations is as much of a blessing as the gentle dew, which descends alike upon the just and the unjust. Therefore — “Cash Up” and help to make each other happy. Blessed are those who pay promptly, because they in their turn shall be paid.
