J. BENSON ODER, Editor. FORTY-FIRST YEAR. NO. 25. ALL INVITED TO COME HOME. The following list comprises another installment of the names and addresses of former residents of Frostburg, now living outside this county, registered by friends here for use of the Centennial and Home-Coming Committee. It is proposed by the latter body to supplement the general invitation, already extended, by one special to each Frostburger, so that as individuals they may be assured of a home desire to see them at home; of a warm welcome when they come, and the tender of generous hospitality while they stay. The names, arranged alphabetically, will appear in succeeding issues of the Journal until all are minted. Meanwhile, should anyone observe that a name has been over looked, or an address given incorrectly, an immediate report to the Journal is solicited, as the Committee is anxious to specially invite all without exception: Anderson, James, Whitsell, Pa.

Four more tickets for Mayor and Council suggested—Dr. W. H. Ravens craft for Mayor on three, John Price on one. The Meyersdale (Pa.) Commercial came out in new typographical dress. Windy weather, but onion-seed sow ing was all the rage in town gardens. St. Patrick’s day, however, was an exception—balmy and still, green neckties and ribbons prevailing. The Valley Times, Bonaconing, wanted to learn “whether a thunder- ( storm can be classed as a weather report?” Messrs. Samuel Wehn and John D. : Getz, poultry-growers, received from i Cayuga county, Ohio, two coops of blooded chickens. Henry Spitznas left Frostburg to : enlist in the U. S. army. At Pitts- : burg, Pa., he contracted small pox, went to St. Bouis, where he was com- • pelled to take hospital accommoda tions. John McKinley went to the West; , William Morgan, Montgomery McMil- j lan and James McDonald, all of Bor den Shaft, to Connellsville, Pa. Much improvement and building ; contemplated, despite the uneasy in dustrial situation. : A Frostburg lady pronounced “cere- : bro spinal meningitis” as “sneer, O, finally men-’ill-git-us.” With an inch of snow on the ground ; lightning was vivid and thunder loud Saturday night, March 18th. They Are Coming. All are glad to recognize in the Journal’s list of absentees an invita tion to visit their “old home” next ' August. Joseph of Honeysuckle Hill, Westminster, this State, is : “pleased to note that my name ap pears among those invited to the 1 Home-Coming, and unless something occurs between this date and that : scheduled for the event named, I shall take great delight in being present.” Mrs. Annie Matthews, of Meyers- : dale, Pa., writes an “expression of gratitude for the opportunity, and I : will certainly visit Frostburg at that time. There is no place in the wide, wide world, so dear to me as my old home. For this reason also I value the Mining Journal most highly.” R. T. Noel, of Baltimore, “will be exceedingly glad of the chance to en joy the hospitality of those whose ' hearts I always found full of love and indulgence. In perusing the list of those who, like myself, have drifted away from the dear old town I am not sorry to acknowledge that it makes ' me home-sick, and I feel like writing to my many old friends, scattered here and there, that it is the duty of all of us to go home and see each other. Fourteen years ago 1 became a unit of the Baltimore Police Department— a life, since, that has many times caused me to envy the simple experi ences of happiness on the mountains. But I have done fairly well, and feel that I have not been ‘a slothful ser vant, weary in well-doing.’ Wishing the Committees and the Journal un- 1 bounded success, I am yours,” etc. Fred. C. Schofield, Washington, D. : C., writes that he is “pleased” to see his “name enrolled among those in vited to the Home-Coming, and if my plans do not go awry I expect to be there. We are made glad every week by the Journal. It keeps us ‘posted’ on the doing of folks at home. If you see it in the Journal it’s wholesome. We enjoy the contributions of Sara Roberta Getty, C. B. Ryan, and lesser lights. Hope the Home-Coming will be a great success.” Not a Canine Song, But ( Bast Monday “Hank” asked the Journal—“please send me a transla tion of that canine song in Kearhosken lingo for this ’ere colyum.” Five or nine minutes later Gen. Kear appeared with this announce ment, taken down in shorthand, as follows: Everytime the News comes to town We read “Hank’s” colyum of renown! Makes no diff’rence if he roasts us brown, We can’t help readin’ his colyum of renown. Entitled to First Chance. “Co-operation between home busi ness men and the buying and selling public is absolutely necessary to a prosperous community of varied inter ests.” And catalogue houses do not support home industry. At least give your home merchant the chance to supply your wants. All he asks for is an opportunity.—Emmittsburg Chron icle. Good butter scarce and high. Only two men in town compelled to wear wigs, but the number who as pired to real moustaches had not been counted. A box was placed in the post-office, labeled “contribute something for the wife and baby of Sergeant Mason.” This was the origin of the expression, current a long time—“ Betty and the Baby.” Mason had received a sen tence of 8 years in a New York peni entiary for attempting to kill Guiteau, the assassin. A. C. Rawlings, Conrad Bapp, J. M. Zimmerly, William Mcßuckie and Conrad Hartman were drawn as jurors. At the home of James Alexander, near Borden Shaft, Tuesday, March 21, 1882, Mrs. Susan Rigum was mar ried to Mr. Isaac Hott, both of this county, by Rev. W. O. Petty, of this place. It was stated that Hon. M. G. Urner, representing this district, had intro duced more bills than any other Con gressman. At a republican primary, held in John J. Keller’s store Thursday, March 23d, William H. Koch was nominated for Mayor, and Andrew Smeltz, Jethro Jeffries, Owen Hitch ins, George Hitchew, Jacob Baker and Henry J. Powell for Councilmen. Frederick Douglas, colored lecturer, addressed a small audience in Odd Fellows’ Opera House Thursday even ing, March 23d. Voluntary Donations. The members of the E rostburg Police Force held a private meeting on the public street Wednesday even ing of last week. Henry Fischer was elected chair man; William Bone secretary; James H. Grose treasurer, and William Warn sergeant-at-arms. Mr. Fischer stated the object of the meeting as convened to devise and es tablish a system of self-taxation for the benefit of the Home-Coming Fund, and that the initial instalment be fixed and liquidated at once Mr. Warn moved that the first in stalment be fixed at $2)4 each, or a total of $10; all subsequent instal ments to be fixed as the situation may suggest. Mr. Bone seconded the motion; the chair submitted it, and it was unani mously adopted. Each member thereupon shelled out $2)4- and handed the sum to the treasurer. Next morning the latter official met and turned over to W. E. G. Hitchins, of the Finance Committee, the sum of $lO. This report is made because Mr. Hitchins seemed to feel that the police men had been impressed by the Jour nal’s appeals two weeks ago, and that both generously and patriotically they had set an example which all others should follow. The committeemen are not able to call upon everybody, while everybody is able to call upon some committee man. If a citizen of Federal Hill or the Growing End, of Tarn Terrace or the Belt Bine, feels that he can give $5 or $9, he can pay in $2)4 or $4)4 now, and later, if desired, the remaining half of his contribution. These figures and plan are suggest ive only—to make it easy .for the giver and the committeemen alike. If verified by unanimous adoption the Home-Coming will be a brilliant success. The policemen have set the example, let all emulate and make it good. The Sick. Mrs. B. R. Ash, Grant street, has been suffering this week with a case of tonsilitis. Clarence Cook, of Grahamton, is still laid up with a sore hand, injured while at work several weeks ago. James Canning, of Grant street, was up-town Wednesday—first time in three months, owing to a severe illness of typhoid fever. Clyde Richardson, Washington street, is recovering from a painful illness. The Great Concert. Next Tuesday evening, 19th inst., the Dickinson College Clubs of Music will attract an oveflow house to the concert. The Beall High-School Alumni As sociation has charge, and the net pro ceeds will be dedicated to improve ment of the school grounds —a most worthy purpose. At the close Mr. and Mrs. William R. Gunter, of Hotel Gladstone, will tender the Clubs a most hospitable re ception in the dining-hall of the great hotel. HENRY P. COOK, Manager. WHOLE HTJMBER 2,110 8.-B. I It seemed incredible that Teddy R. should ever have favored the recall of judicial decisions, but he is recorded as. explaining that he meant the recall to apply only to decisions of the um pire against the home team. But even this is liable to start a fight. “Keno” speculates as follows: “As the snow still flies and the frost still chills the winds, it may be premature to say much of the great national game as it is played in this region, but down in the Sunny South all the Big Beague clubs are ‘getting together’ and are hard at work prac -0 tising for the first great clashes next month. a “Here, on the contrary, little or nothing is doing, nothwithstanding :, ‘now is the accepted time’ to get in e shape for the season, and not wait ’ until it is half over. , “Frostburg has abundant talent for e the composition of a strong team of - players, who, if they can be gotten to - gether at an early stage in the game can be counted on to furnish incite ment for rivalry in other towns. “Bet us see who we have as candi j dates for championships: “For pitchers—No-Hit Allen, Hines and Frank Spates. ’ “For catchers—McKenzie and Finn. “For first base—Davis. “For second base—Rarick. “For third base —Hunter. 5 “For short-stop—Price. “For out-field—Spates, Brophy, > Finn and Cooper. “To the majority of good baseball judges these look like a team that could ‘reduce to lowest terms’ the 3 score of any competing team in this , region. s “Midland will be in the field—sure. v Already steps have been taken to get - the runners together, and the per- I sonnel has the complexion of a fast bunch. ■ “Phister, Wilson and Stevens will I pitch. “Woods and Nolan will catch. “McFarland will defend first; Mc • Guire guard second, and McGee pro tect third. “Shearer for short-stop, and Hil -5 leary, Schombert and Carroll for fly ’ catchers, complete an aggregation that will be sure to make an impres sion on anything they hit. “Bonaconing will have all the old S . faces and a few new ones in the 1912 1 1- line-up. “Grindle, Brown and Duckworth will hold down the pitching-pad. “Barclay will receive everything that passes the bat unscathed. ’ “Develin will plant his left foot on 0 first base. “Robinson will touch second when ever not otherwise employed. “Brown’s right toe will be found on third whenever there is a threatening u dash from second. “Flynn is booked for stopping all 0 # balls that attempt to pass short station. “Piney Stevens, Tug Glenn and Biz McFarland will watch all balls that essay to do the aeroplane act over the home-run fence. “William McKenty, it is under stood, will be the manager, and as he ’ is ambitious, there will be some in . spiration oozed into his team to win. “As usual, Piedmont will have a strong team. (“Say, all the rest of you —lookout ' for Piedmont!) “Manager Cuthbertson has a crack- Y er-jack lot of good players. “If Bong John Jake Wilson con tinues in good form Piedmont will have a twirler from Twirlerburg. ’ “And Buckalew and Whitworth are catchers from Catcherville. “While Kelley, Doyle and Baughlin are Tri-Town base-wardens. 0 “Stewart is a stopper from Short r mont, and — ’ “Whitworth, Stump, Cuthbertson 3 and Richardson are the ranchers from Ranch City. (“Say, again—look out for that mountain-foot bunch!”) “As yet Cumberland has not secured ground for play next season, and the excellent teams that the town had two last seasons will, if organized, have to ’ play away from home. “It is not too much to hope, how ever, that the many lovers of the national game down there will unite and succeed in securing a suitable e site, not too far out, for a base-ball park. 3 “Now let us get a hustle on our selves. We have no such embarrass ment as Cumberland has, and ought s to do what is necessary quickly and a easily. In fact, there is more than s ever to urge us to be up and doing. There is the Home-Coming —a func n tion that should stir Frostburg to the .1 depths in base-ball as in other enter prises. We ought to have a team that can boldly challenge a Big Beague team to come here and play at least , one day—a forenoon and afternoon c game. e “Great guns! wouldn’t an announce ment like that for, say Tuesday, i- August 27, bring a crowd?” i- The New York “Giants,” one of the :- biggest of the Big-Beague teams in t this county, played a game the other day with the Fort Worth (Texas) ag u gregation and, much to the Giants’ j surprise, got licked! ” The Weather. ■t Wild geese have been seen on the Potomac below Piedmont.
