Mining fffifi Journal.
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:

AN INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPER.
1882 1912*^
f THIRTY YEARS AGO. f
1 The Items Below Were Current During T
Week Ending March 25, 1882.
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.

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.
