Reminiscences. Charlie Ryan writes that “Erostburg boys of the early 80’s used to poke fun at Cooper Hitchins when he amused himself making doll-clothes. Cooper, however, stuck to his fancy, and now holds the poker at the end farthest from the prod. Lillian, by the way, is ‘some doll.’ ” Some Mistake Here. A traveling preacher from the west, when near Erostburg, was overtaken by a horse-back rider who asked the strange preacher where he was going. “I am going to Heaven !” said the preacher. “You are on the wrong road,” said the horseman; “this road leads to Frostburg—a different direction ; turn around, brother, and go up the road.” .— Philip's Boy. It isn’t often that “a traveling preacher” is “overtaken by a horse back rider” who knows that Grants ville—not Erostburg, is on the road to Heaven. Home, Sweet Home.

On a recent trip to Germany Dr. Harvey Wiley, the goverment’s pure food expert, heard an allegory with reference to the subject of food adul teration which he contends should cause Americans to congratulate themselves that things are so well or dered in this respect in the United States. The German allegory was substan tially as follows: Four flies, which had made their way into a certain pantry, determined to have a feast. One flew to the sugar and ate heart ily, but soon died, for the sugar was full of white lead. The second chose the flour as his diet but he fared no better, for the flour was loaded with plaster of Paris. The third sampled the syrup, but his six legs were raised in the air, for the syrup was covered with aniline dyes. The fourth fly, seeing all his friends dead, determined to take his life, also, and drank deeply of fly-poison, which he found in a convenient saucer. He is still alive and in good health. That, too, was adulterated. Front Foot and. Side Foot. The people of Baltimore have car ried the “assessment” fad so far that the charge for water supply is based upon lot frontage. Of course, this disgusts many peo ple, among them Henry Edward War ner, of the Sun, who writes in that paper of Tuesday: “A butcher would make an awful hit if he charged for his meat on the basis on which Baltimore charges for water. “For instance, a man in a 12-foot front house would pay 20 cents a pound; IS feet, 23 cents a pound; 20 feet, 26 cents; 25 feet, 30 cents, etc. “Same meat, same pound, same butcher!” But if a man happened to live on a corner-lot the price for meat on the longer side would be cut down to an average, of 4cents a pound per foot. | HERE AT HOME. —♦ —- Frostburg Citizens Gladly Testify and Confidently Recommend Doan’s Kidney Pills. It is testimony like the following that has placed Doan’s Kidneys Pills so far above competitors. When peo ple right here at home raise their voice in praise there is no room left for doubt. Read the public statement of a Erostburg citizen: Mrs. John Wagus, 153 Bowery street, Erostburg, Md., says: “During the fifteen years that I suffered from kid ney complaint, I tried a great deal of medicine but nothing gave me relief until I took Doan’s Kidney Pills. I had headaches and dizzy spells and felt so weak and nervous that my life was almost a burden. My back ached terribly and the doctor’s medicine did not help me in the least. When I read how Doan’s Kidney Pills were curing other people of similar troubles, I began their use. They improved my condition so greatly that I publicly recommended them, and at this time I can again speak in their praise. Another member of my family has also taken Doan’s Kidney Pills and considers them the best kidney medi cine he has ever known of.” For sale by all dealers. Price 50 cents.

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.
