Roemer, Cumberland printer, issued recently with his book let, “Cumberland —Undeveloped Re sources of Allegany County,” etc., containing an article on “Sheep Cul ture,” by Dr. George Sloan, of North Yakima, Washington, a small adver tising blotter, illustrated by a flock of grazing sheep. Evidently, the doctor liked this, for he contributes the following stanza to the Journal: Charlie Roemer bought two fleecy, pretty lambs, And later those same lambs had sons and daughters; They proved so profitable and looked so nice, He printed their photographs on his blotters.

Thomas Loar, of District No. 9, Garrett county, has perfected a saw set and truer—an entirely new inven tion, and believed to be the greatest achievement yet made in the art of wood-working. He has evidently spent some time, study and labor in the accomplishment, and the Journal hopes he will reap a rich reward. Would Like to See Her Birth-Place. The Journal has an interesting letter from Miss Lily Belle Jessup, Spencer, lowa. Miss Lily was born here in 1888, her father, Rev. E. C. Jessup, being pastor of the German Lutheran Church at that time. The family soon after moved to Chicago and have since lived in other places and States. She knows nothing of her birth-place except what she has heard from her mother and father, but hopes some day to enjoy the pleasure of see ing the town for herself. Anyway, she tenders “warmest wishes for the complete success of the great celebra tion in August, next.” Her father is pastor of a church in Cedar Rapids, lowa, and Miss Lily expects to make her own home in that city after June Ist. Here, Too. A city or town, like a horse, should be well groomed. It should be the aim of every resident to make his home town look attractive to visitors and cause them to speak well of it when they leave Westminster (Md.) Advocate. The injunction is especially appli cable to Frostburg this year, and work ought to begin at the earliest possible moment and continue until it is thoroughly done. A Good Organization. The Mutual Aid Society of Mines No.’s 6 and 7, near and at Lord, Con solidation Coal Company, held its an nual meeting Wednesday of last week, and the following report was made by the executive officers: Cash and Income— Cash on hand April 1, 1911.. .$ 380.68 Received during year 5,563.75 Total $5,944.43 : Expenditures— ' Sick benefits $4,073.77 ' Death benefits 650.00 : Officers’ salaries 393.45 : Donations 93.99 Flowers 14.00 Rent 9.00 Stationery, 5.50 Cash on hand 704,72 Total $5,944.43 Officers for the current year were elected as follows: President—James L.

BURDENS LIFTED —♦ — From Frostburg Backs—Relief Proved by Lapse of Time. Backache is a heavy burden; Nervousness wears one out;. Rheumatic pain; urinary ills; All are kidney burdens— Daily effects of kidney weakness. No use to cure the symptoms, Relief is but temporary if the cause remains. Cure the kidneys and you cure the cause. Relief comes quickly—comes to stay. Doan’s Kidney Pills cure kidney ills; Prove it by your neighbor’s case. Here’s Frostburg testimony. The story of a permanent cure. Mrs. William J. Thomas, 70 Bowery street, Frostburg, Md., says: “Doan’s Kidney Pills certainly did me a wonderful amonnt of good. I take pleasure in confirming the statement I gave in their praise in 1907. I had a great deal of trouble from my back and there were pains in my loins when I moved in bed. My kidneys were in bad shape and I was unable to get anything that would help me until I procured Doan’s Kidney Pills. They brought me entire relief in a short time.” 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. Wages Advanced. Recent anuouncement of rates of wages raised by the Consolidation Coal Company, beginning April Ist, were received with great satisfaction by those affected. The official figures in full are, per ton— Room —Pick-Work. .63 to 65% cents Heading— “ “ ..75 to Big Vein Machine Mining 42 to 44 '% “ Small Vein Machine Mining 38 to 40% “ Drivers and Brakemen per day 10 “ All other labor per day 5 “ The increases seem small, but in the aggregate they will amount to a big sum to both the workers ancf the community. Improvements. The roofs of both the Frostburg Opera House and Eleanor Building have been splendidly renewed recent ly by Samuel B. Johnson, contractor. Excellent Financial Report. The annual meeting of the Equi table Savings and Loan Society was held Tuesday evening, and the di rectorate was organized for the cur rent year as follows: President —Howard Hitchins. Vice-President —Dr. J. M. Price. Secretary and Attorney —Clayton Purnell. Treasurer —J. B. Oder. Directors —William C. Devecmon, J. H. Hitchins, Dr. I. L. Ritter, J. C. Yungerman, L. D. Willison and John S. Brophy. From the report elsewhere printed it will be seen that of the gross profits —58,388.82, the sum of $7,360.65 con stitutes 6 per cent, of the capital in vested for the entire year. Of the latter sum nearly one-half goes back to the borrowing stock holders—a feature which obtains un der no other system. Hence, last year, as in all previous years, the Society illustrates practi cally the feasibility of a borrower ob taining interest on the money with which he pays a debt. Numerous Gasoline Fires. This year’s automobile season is starting out with more than the usual number of gasoline fires, doubtless caused by the increasing use of the very volatile gasoline compressed from natural gas. During the past few weeks there has been in Pittsburg at least a half dozen such fires, several destroying single automobiles, while others destroyed private garages and their contents, and two of them destroying large public garages, entailing a loss in each case of approximately $40,000. It is a very significant fact that not one of these fires was traced to the use of gasoline which had been guar anteed by the seller to be made from Crude Oil, all being caused by the use of gasoline that was known to be a product of natural gas, or gasoline that was sold by refiners who declined to guarantee that it was not made in part, at least, from compressed natur al gas. The price of this gasoline com pressed from natural gas is very low, and, therefore, there is consider able incentive to economize in this re spect, even at the expense of safety. Gasoline refined from Crude Oil is far from being a safe article, but it cannot be compared with the product of natural gas any more than ordinary rifle powder can be compared with nitroglycerin.

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 ver} r 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.
