J. BENSON OBEIt, Editor.
FROSTBURG, MD. - - MAY 18, 1912
COMPARISONS-HI STORY-APPEAL
The U. S. Senate passed this week
appropriations of $50,000 for a public
building in Keyser, W. Va., and
$60,000 for one in Buckhannon, same
State, neither place, being up in the
Frostburg class. Keyser gets as much
as Frostburg; Buckhannon SIO,OOO
more.
News came Tuesday that—
“ The Senate Committee on Public
Buildings and Grounds again did the
unusual thing today when it voted
unanimously to allow Crisfield and
Salisbury, Md., more money for pub
lic buildings than had been asked for
in the original bills introduced by
Senator John Walter Smith. Salis
bury will get $90,000 and Crisfield
$65,000, according to the favorable re
ports made this afternoon.
“Senator Smith has made it a policy
to be modest in his requests for public
building appropriations, trusting to
the fairness of the committee to give
the Maryland towns the amount of
money needed. This policy has
worked successfully three times in the
present session of Congress.
“In each of the original bills Sena
tor Smith asked for $50,000 and in each
case the amount was raised.”
That is, for Crisfield the Senator
asked for $50,000 and got $15,000 more,
and for Salisbury he asked for the
same sum and got $40,000 more!
If comparative population be a
factor in the determination of the ap
propriations Frostburg should have
SBI,OOO to enjoy Salisbury’s equivalent
of fortune, and $113,000 to signalize
its class above Crisfield.
Isn’t this a matter that should at
once command the serious attention
and active work of the business ele
ment of our people?
Do we want at least a two-story
over-ground building as a monument
to our enterprise, or are we going to
be content with the same edifice, one
story underground, as a memorial of
our imbecility?
The people of Frostburg have en
joyed considerable “puffing” of late
anent their interest in the Home-
Coming enterprise, but here is some
thing of higher than sentimental im
portance.
On the very ground the post-office
is to be built lived Dennis Beall when,
in June, 1812, the second declaration
of war against Great Britain was
issued. It was here that he heard of
British captures of land on the lakes
and like aggressions, and it was from
this very ground that he entered the
American army as a captain of a com
pany made up from the people of this
town and environs early in 1813—each
and all in defence of their country!
Isn’t that enough to induce us to
get something more than a one-story
edifice on that ground—something
that will appeal to the Government
itself to make the building monu
mental as well as useful?
If it is, the hour for effort is here!

Frostburg.
Rev. Dr. D. H. Martin, D. D., pastor
of the First M. E. Church, delivered
a memorable sermon last Sunday
morning with “The Home Coming
City” as the topic.
He paid tribute to the town’s long
and successful life; to city altitude
and scenic environment; to its natural
advantages; to the high quality of its
people, especially its workingmen; to
its streets, buildings—business and
residential; to the number and excel
lence of its fraternal societies; to the
general good order which constantly
prevails; to a popular intelligence
in extent to but one town of its
size in the United States, as evidenced
by the sale of newspapers, magazines
and other letirature; to the sturdy
character of its people as near-descend
ants of the best blood of England, Ire
land, Wales, Scotland, and Germany;
to the high standard of the people’s
home life, and to Frostburg churches,
which offer the people a gospel-ser
vice of the real standard, accentuated
by' vocal and instrumental accompani
ments of the highest order.
The Journal will acknowledge in a
separate paragraph Dr. Martin’s com
plimentary comment upon the Mining
Journai, as an able, accommodating
paper, whose career of many years
has been a progressive factor in the
town’s growth and prosperity.
Altogether, the sermon was admirably
commendatory of town, people, insti
tution, eloquently stated, and without
a particle of sacrifice of the truth in
over-statement.

ing of the Epworth Eeague was com

Acknowledgments.
The Journai, acknowledges receipt
of a beautifully arranged and printed
pamphlet program of the “Dedicatory
Services of the First Baptist Church
of Pittsburg”—a religious function
which extended from April 28th to May
sth. It was a centennial celebration
also, the church having been organ
ized in April, 1812, when its first of
“five meeting-houses” cost $1,0(X), the
one just dedicated $385,000. The
Journai, would not have known who
sent the pamphlet but for the name of
“W. H. Womsley,” one of the Build
ing Committee, underscored with red
ink. Mr. Womsley was an Eckhart
boy during the Journal’s early years;
now a prosperous, prominent citizen
of Pittsburg.
Old Landmark Disappearing.
Workmen pulled down and tore
away the old Engle building, corner
of East Union and Uhl streets, this
week, preparatory to the erection of a
modern business house.
The timbers are evidently of great
age, and William Engle says that
about 24 years ago a lady member of
the Uhl family, from whom the street
took its name, was here 24 years ago
and, wanting to get a relic from the
old house, gave as the reason that she
was born therein 76 years before, in
dicating that the building is over 100
years old.
Mr. Engle believes that it was the
oldest house in Frostburg.
It developed further that the late
John Mayer, father of the enterpris
ing Mayer Brothers, moved into the
house May 15, 1862, just 50 years ago
last Wednesday, and his sons report
him as often saying “it was a very old
house then.”
Business Movements.
David J. Morgan, of this place, hav
ing been promoted to inspector of the
Consolidation Coal Company’s coal,
succeeding the late William H. Bailey,
John H. Donahue, ex-State Mine In
spector, has been appointed to take
Mr. Morgan’s office as pillar inspector,
and went “on duty” Thursday morn
ing-
Coincidence.
On the same day that Hon. F. N.
Zihlman, of Cumberland, returned
from “the State Convention in Balti
more,” Col. John W. Avirett, of same
city, went to “the State Convention
in Baltimore.”
Improvements.
The Hitchins Brothers Company’s
big mercantile front was equipped
this week with a beautiful full-length
awning. From morning to mid-day,
therefore, the front windows hereafter
will be artificially shaded.
This Paper.
All town “progressives”should read
editorial —“Comparisons —H i s t o r y
Appeal.”
New Missionary Hymn.
About Christmas, last year, the
Journal published a missionary hymn
written by Miss Esser Marshall Hoff
man, Linden, Va., for the Baltimore
Conference, M. E. Church, South.
The hymn met with wide accept
ance as an appropriately beautiful
composition, and a copy, sent to John
T. Cale, of North Carolina, that gen
tleman set it to music.
In this form a copy, returned to the
Journal, was submitted to Miss Elsie
R. Dando, an accomplished vocalist,
of this place, who pronounces it a
fine production, both in text and note.
Miss Hoffman may well be proud of
an achievement at once so beautiful
and good.
Coming Events.
The Sunday School Association of
Somerset Classis of the Reformed
church will hold its annual convention

quarters of Frostburg Aerie, No. 1,273,
Shea Building, Tuesday, Wednesday
and Thursday, next, 21st, 22d and 23d

Two Crew-So Kids.
I had a skeery dream last night,
Which I will now relate :
I dreamed that me and Charlie Ryan
Had got in bad with Fate.
We lived upon a barren isle,
And for food had long to wait—
’Til Charlie found a calendar,
And then we ate a date.
But very soon the dates ran out,
And one day bright and fair
We found a pretty deck of cards,
And then we ate a pair.
Of dates and pears we soon got tired ;
So, when hungry, we’d just stroll
Right down on the nice white sand,
And there we took a roll.
On that same strand we saw a peach,
A red-cheeked one and sweet;
But a policeman said ’twas one which
’Twould be agin the law to eat.
We sat one night in our lonely hut,
And for salad we sure did howl—
’Til Charlie pulled the windows shut,
And lo ! the very air grew foul !
SEQUEL
We walked along a real high cliff;
I slipped ! then, just as I was falling,
I heard a noise like a mining-shot—
But ’twas the alarm-clock calling !

Brevities.
The Baltimore Sun heads a news
special with “Frostburg Sticks to Old
Streets.” Doesn’t sound well, but “the
whole story,” written for its columns,
would not be considered “brief as
possible.”
Invitation Extended to All.
The Frostburg Real Estate Com
pany will offer for sale on Decoration
Day, May 30, 1912, Thirty-Two (32)
Choice Lots, each 50 by 150 feet in
size, and located on Park Avenue,
near southern terminal of Broadway,
adjacent to the actual centre of the
town; within three minutes walk of
the Post-Office, First National Bank,
and Citizens National Bank —on paved
street all the way. They are about
100 yards from both the Beall High
School and State Normal School build
ings, and in touch with the water,
natural gas and electric-light supplies.
Each lot is a most desirable site for
your home. No mud, no snow, no
slush to wade through in order to
“get there,” and within both the
town’s fire and police protection.
These lots will be sold on easy pay
ments—an accommodation which
makes them available to everyone who
is really ambitious to own a home.
The sale will be conducted by the
Morrow Brothers,_ of Pittsburg, Pa.,
who have become famous throughout
this and neighboring States for suc
cess in functions of this character,
and will begin promptly at 1 o’clock
p. m., Thursday, May 30, 1912.
Lastly', whether you wish to buy or
not, you are specially invited to come,
see and hear for yourself all of the
many merits of the proposition.

A Model Mill Motor.
R. M. Moore, of Parkersburg, W.
Va., completed the instalment Thurs
day of a 20 horse-power Bessemer gas
engine for the H. B. Shaffer Company',
and it is now in full operation as the
motive power of the company'’s mill.
The engine is of horizontal design,
spacious cylinder, two fly'-wheels and
the other indispensable accessories—
all arranged for the use of natural gas.
The most conspicuous economical
feature is the large tank which, once
full of water, can be used indefinitely.
The water, drawn by the engine for
cooling, is returned to the tank, as
stated, for use again and again.
The engine propels the grinding
operations of the mill, including hoist
ing and the other processes through
which the mill products must go.
These are feed, meal, rye flour,
graham flour, and the Georges Creek
region’s favorite buckwheat flour.
For the most part these are always
in demand, and more than usually so
now.
But the new engine is expected to
“catch up” with the orders in a short
while, and then all will be easy.
A Good Purpose.
Under auspices of a committee of
Cresap Chapter, Daughters of the
Revolution—Mrs. Adolph Frey and
Miss Nellie V. Betz, a “500-Party”
was held in Gladstone Annex, Wed
nesday evening, for the benefit of
“The Braddock Mile-Stone Fund.”
It was a “ladies only'” party, with ad
mission fees as basis for receipts.
The ladies’ effort in this direction is
worthy of all commendation, and they
deserve the substantial co-operation
of the town’s gentlemen.
The “Braddock Mile-Stone,” the
Journal reiterates, should be placed
on the side of the Braddock road, at a
place where the old highway is dis
tinctly' marked, and both protected by r
an enduring enclosure and shelter!
Along this road George Washington
passed—at least three round-trips,
twice on foot, once on horseback, and
this fact of itself should enlist the
patriotic co-operation of the men with
the women in preserving stone and
road as twin-memorials of America’s
Greatest Son!

WEDDING GLOVE FOR BRIDE
Third Finger Is Left Unstitched So
That the Ring Can Be Slipped
On.
A happy era has dawned for the
bride at the fateful moment when the
ring is about to be placed on her fin
ger.
Instead of the usual struggle to re
move her left hand glove she will
now be able to uncover the third fin
ger without effort and without losing
her composure.
This delightful result is to be ob
tained by an ingenious “wedding
glove" device. The inside seam on
the third finger of the left glove is un
stitched, so that all that the bride
need do is to slip her finger through
the slit to receive the ring. The fin
ger can Just as easily be slipped back
into the glove after the ceremony.
The device will be greatly appre
ciated not only by the bride, but also
by the nervous bridegroom.
The story of the origin of the wed
ding glove has come to light. Some
time ago a girl who had lost her right
arm in the hunting field asked for a
single wedding glove.
She remarked on the awkwardness
of having to remove her glove with
the help of her teeth, and it was then
seen that matters would be greatly
facilitated for the bride if she only
had to uncover the ring finger.
The experiment was so successful
that it aroused the interest of other
prospective brides, who saw in it a
boon which would save them from
the usual difficulties of removing a
whole glove in the moment when the
ring is about to be put on. —Exchange.
Fine Horses of Mixed Blood.
Since the beginning of the seven
teenth century Jerez de la Forontera
has been the most noted horse-breed
ing center of Andalusia, for many hun
dreds of years famous for its fine
horses. Jerez de la Forontera was one
of the first and last Moorish strong
holds in Spain, and the best horses
there were all bred from famour Arab
stallions, so that what is known as an
Andalusian, or Spanish, horse has al
ways a good deal of Arab blood; it
has, however, been crossed with so
many other breeds, especially Flemish,
that today the Spanish horse is not
registered in the books of record of
pure-blood animals.

Real Estate Movements.
Paul Goldsworthy has sold his valu
able property, corner East Union and
Grant streets, to Mrs. Paul Chabot
and Mrs. Philip Jenkins, price not
stated, and it is believed the ladies
contemplate a new, larger and hand
somer building.
War Reminiscence.
In the Baltimore News’’ “Fifty
Years Ago” record May 15th is the
following item :
“A company of infantry of Geary’s
division was captured by' Confederate
cavalry at Linden, Va.
The late Charles H. Walker, of this
place, was in that “bout,” but escaped
capture.
Political.
The republican State Convention in
Baltimore Tuesday included Hon.
‘ George L. Wellington, of Cumberland,
as one of the four delegates-at-large
to the Chicago National Convention.

A Decisive Report.
But little interest in the bond-issue
election Tuesday was apparent.
Of 1,447 registered votes only 439
were cast, less than 31 per cent.
The proposition provided for an
issue of $50,000 in bonds at 4 per cent.
to run 30 years, proceeds to be appro
priated to street improvement on the
front-foot assessment plan, and the
vote “for” and “against” was as fol
lows:
Ward 1 Ward 2 Total
Against 132 194 326
For 27 86 113
Majorities against 105 108 213
Nearly 75 per cent, of those who
voted opposed the issue, while the
1,008 who failed to vote attested there
by a negative attitude.
Had the proposition been submitted,
minus the special assessment feature,
it might have carried, but there has
always been in Frostburg a strong
antipathy to incurring bonded debts.
Silver Wedding.
The Orderof the Eastern Star helped
Ex-Mayor and Mrs. Janies H. Fuller
memorialize the 25th anniversary of
MHeir wedding Tuesday evening, 14th
Suit., at their home, 102 Wood street.
Wi'he function was a gratifying sur-
JHise to the couple, both of whom have
SMmy friends. The ladies, of course,
care of Mrs. Fuller, while the
“seconded the motion” by
the occasion delightful to the
groom.”
affair went so far that the
Couple were induced to pledge anew
their vows in a ceremony directed by
Rev. J. N. Beall, Miss Aminta Snave
ly, of Hagerstown, playing a wedding
march. Then presentation was made
of a solid-silver pitcher, tray, goblet,
knives and forks. Over 50 persons
comprised the party—all contributors
and partakers of a midnight feast of
appropriate refreshments.
Campaign Against Flies.
The Civic Club met Tuesday even
ing and heard a satisfactory report
from “The Clean-Up Week Com
mittee.” Some work on some premises
remains to be done, but the' outlook is
favorable for a clean town.
It was determined to offer induce
ments, especially to the young, to de
stroy flies —a prize to girl or boy who
makes largest return of dead flies to
the Club during the ensuing three
months, and all will be paid at the
rate of 5 cents a pint.
The next meeting will be held in the
Town Council Chamber Monday even
ing, 27th, when officers for next year
will be elected.
Cleanses the System
Of all worms and leaves the child
healthy and happy. Nothing is so
quickly and thoroughly effectual for
this purpose as Dill’s Worm Syrup.
It has cured thousands who have tried
other preparations with only partial
success. An excellent cathartic and
pleasant to take. 25 cents. *6
The Long and Short of It.
Coming down street Wednesday, the
Journal asked three good citizens—
“ Why did you vote against the bond
issue yesterday?”
The first replied—
“ Because I am opposed to the as
sessment system. I live on Bowery
street and I believe that if the town
wants that street paved, the town
should do it without special cost to
me—like the State and county pay for
the education of the children,” and so
on.
The second said—
“l voted for the issue.”
The third replied—
“l voted against the bonds because
I have already been taxed 33J4 per
cent, for paving the street I live on.
I have also paid my share of the taxes
levied for the town’s third. Not only
that I have paid my share of the
town’s third for paving on other
streets, where I have no concern.
And now I don’t want to pay interest
and finally principal on a town debt
for still other streets.”
The Journal gives these answers
as nearly as possible in the language
first spoken, and they are average
samples of the popular reasons for the
failure of the proposal.
In the briefest terms, the pre
vailing conviction is—let the town, as
a town, pay for all public improve
ments.
