EROSTBURG, MD. - - MAY 18, 1912 Do You Know That Frostburg is one of the best towns in the State? That its three Banks have deposits of nearly $2,000,000? That two magnificent bank build ings have been erected at a cost of $90,000? That capital has shown its confi dence in the city by large building operations during the past year? That the various industries in this section distribute over $300,000 each month? That the prospects for future growth and development could not be brighter? That the new railroad will be an important factor in the growth of our city? And last, but not least in importance, That on Saturday, May 25th, you will have an opportunity to purchase a lot at your own price, thereby laying the foundation for a HOME? All Go. An important meeting of the Home- Coming Committees will be held in the Council Chamber next Monday evening, 20th inst., and the chairmen are anxious to have as many members attend as can possibly do so. Each should go, therefore, and take along at least one good suggestion for the profit of the enterprise. Advance Report. John H. Donahue retired from the office of State Mine Inspector on the 4th inst., and will be able to make re port of operations under his oversight to and inclusive of the last day of April. To December 31, 1911, he favors the Journai, with a synopsis showing that the production of coal to that date, while not specially notable, indicates a fairly prosperous year for all en gaged. The total tonnage of coal produced from all shipping and local mines was 4,166,736 tons, of which 3,442,117 tons was mined in Allegany, and 724,619 tons in Garrett county, altogether an average of 731 tons for each employee. The number of men employed was 4,820 in Allegany and 884. in Garrett county—aggregate 5,704 in the State. During the official year ending April 30, 1912, there were 152 acci dents—l 4 fatal, 138 non-fatal —a de crease of 3 fatal, and an increase of 12 non-fatal. During the calendar year ending December 31, 1911, there were 15 fatal accidents—a decrease also of 3 under the number for 1910, with 227,782 tons for each life lost, one for each 380 miners employed. The production for year ending De cember 31, 1911, shows a decrease of tons 549,637 from that of 1910 in the State. ■ Assault. William C. Noel, on his way home from his office Tuesday evening, about 10 % o’clock, was assaulted in front of the First National Bank by Harry Atkinson and another man, name not given out. Mr. Noel, it is said, had insulted Atkinson earlier in the even- , ing by telling him he could not do business with a man while the latter was intoxicated. This, however, he had forgotten until reminded by At kinson’s'strenuous assault. Mr. Noel is manager of The Sun Mercantile Agency, real-estate dealer, general all-round good fellow, owning very many good friends who sympathise with him. He was knocked down, kicked and generally maltreated, but is recovering at his home on Orman street. “Wild Man.” John Rorgic, Austrian immigrant to Allegany Grove and Narrows Park, via South Carolina, was arrested Tuesday by Sheriff Corfield for “wild- : ness.” He would suddenly rush into houses, scare women and children, and then leave for the woods. Re ported that he couldn’t get work; hence, his resort to the roads, fields , and woods. The Sick. Mrs. Karl Schlosstein, of this place, \ is convalescent from an operation for appendicitis at Western Maryland Hospital a short while ago. Miss Mary J. Harris, Center and ' Eoo streets, is reported ill. Miss Katharine Hager, of this place, ; underwent an operation this week for , appendicitis in Western Maryland . Hospital. , John F. Brady, of Maple street, : was out on crutches Wednesday—first ' time in three months. His left leg is : affected by blood poison. : Help the Ladies. : Many women, touched by the heroic ; sacrifice of men on the Titanic to save 1 the lives of women and children, are - leading in a movement to raise a fund , for the erection of a shaft in Wash- , ington—not only to commemorate j their appreciation of those who thus ] gave up their lives, but as “a constant ] reminder to the people’s representa- < tives to protect by legislation all who . have to entrust their lives to steam- . ship companies.” Read the article elsewhere printed entitled “Appeals for Titanic Shaft,” and, if approving the gracious enter prise, heed the direction contained in the last paragraph. Sport. Two young men of Eckhart—Messrs. Herman Filsinger and Robert Strach am, are in training for a mile foot race—from J. J. Byrnes’ store to Clarysville. When the contest will “come off” has not been determined, but it cannot be far hence, as each is anxious to enjoy the glory of out running the other. John H. Kidwell is “coaching” Filsinger, while Strach am enjoys the tuition of Robert White. The mile is down-hill, so that each will impartially enjoy the favor of the law of gravitation. It seems to be un derstood, confidentially, that each ex pects to make the run in less than 7% minutes. The winner will get $lO and a side-wager of $25, or $17 % each in event of a tie. THIS IS CERTAIN. ♦ The Proof That Frostburg Read ers Cannot Deny. What could furnish stronger evi dence of the efficiency of any remedy than the test of time? Thousands of people testify that Doan’s Kidney Pills cure permanently. Home endorsement should prove undoubtedly the merit of the remedy. Years ago your friends and neighbors testified to the relief they had derived from the use of Doan’s Kidney Pills. They now confirm their testimonials. They say time has completed the test. Mrs. B. T. Schofield, 96 W. Main street, Frostburg, Md., says: “For many years I suffered from pains through my back and my limbs were so stiff and sore that I could hardly get around. The kidney secretions were in bad shape and I rested poorly at night. When in that miserable condition, I procured a box of Doan’s Kidney Pills and they helped me at once. I have since told several other people about this elective kidney medicine.” (Statement given No vember 16, 1907.) A LATER STATEMENT. Mrs. Schofield was interviewed by our representative on May 17, 1911, and she said: “I am pleased to verify the public statement I gave in 1907, recommending Doan’s Kidney Pills. They certainly did good work in my case.” 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. Business Movements. Eugenio Bianchini, recently ap pointed Sales Manager for the Con solidation Coal Company in Italy, with headquarters at Genoa, spent several days in ‘the region with Manager Hesse familiarizing himself with the manner in which the coal is handled in and at the mines. Mr. Bianchini is a polished, cultured gentleman, with a wide experience, being familiar with the business conditions of Europe, Asia and South American countries. After visiting the Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Kentucky Divis ions he will return to Italy. A Word to the Fire Departmeat. Fred. Wade wants the fire whistle established on the summit of the new ice-plant of the Mayer Brothers. He says the whistle is absolutely indispensable; that from the location named it can be heard all over town in event of fire, and that “the Mayers are just the fellows who will take care of and keep it in tune.” Comiag Eveats. The Odd Fellows of Southern Penn sylvania, Maryland, the Virginias and District of Columbia, are projecting a grand reunion in Pen Mar Park, this State, Thursday, August Bth, next. Much interest and. enthusiasm have already been manifested and it will be a most enjoyable re-union. The two lodges in Frostburg will most probably be largely represented, as at that time trains will be running on the Western Maryland Railroad directly through. George Burdock, Of Burdockburg, Garrett county, was in town a few days ago and reported that he had learned from credible sources that the proposed electric railway from Frost burg to Meyersdale, Pa., via Burdock burg, is a sure thing. Our Partnership In Town Business. A village, a town, a city is a part nership. All of us here in this place are in business together. We have our own individual ownership of prop erty, but our prosperity as a whole is very closely bound up with each other. If you have a house to rent, goods to sell, labor to sell, your success in getting a good price for such services depends wholly on the prosperit} 7 of your neighbors. If they are doing a good business, they will pay you good prices, and as times go the prices paid you will tend to increase from year to year. On the other hand, if your neighbors are not prosperous, they will haggle over the last cent for your house, your goods, your labor, and the prices for these services will tend to fall. When you buy goods away from home, you work to reduce the prosper ity of your neighbors, making them both less able and less willing to do anything to advance your prosperity. When you buy goods at home you in crease the prosperity of your neigh bors, and they become better able to advance your interests, and entertain a kindly feeling towards you that makes them want to do so. It would be interesting to trace in detail sometimes the actual result of buying goods at home that you pre viously bought somewhere outside. Suppose your wife orders a $25 bill of clothing at A’s dry goods store, in stead of buying it on some trip to another city. The merchant of course has to send a large portion of that $25 out of town, to pay the jobber for the goods. But a large share of the expenses of any business is in labor, rent, taxes, etc., spent at home. It would not surprise us if $lO of that $25 stuck right at home. In some lines more than that would do so. This portion that remains at home spreads out in a circle of usefulness. In this case it would pay the wages of a clerk for a week, enable the clerk to pay house rent for two or three weeks, permit the landlord to pay the carpenter to put his property in better repair, allow the carpenter to pay the interest on his mortgage at the bank, help the bank to lend money to a mechanic to build a new house, and so on.

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.
