Utilizing a War Building.
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.”
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
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
“ 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
“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.)
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
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
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.)

Mrs. Schofield was interviewed by
our representative on May 17, 1911,
and she said: “I am pleased to verify

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.

Eckhart has one big fat boy and one
little lean boy.
The big fat boy is amiable ; the lit

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
“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

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.
