J. SENS ON ODEIi, Editor. FROSTBURG, MD. - - MAY 18, 1912 COMPARISONS HISTORY-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 tol be content with the same edifice, onel story underground, as a memorial ofl our imbecility? | The people of Frostburg have en-l joyed considerable “puffing” of latel anent their interest in the Home-1 Coming enterprise, but here is some thing of higher than sentimental im portance. 1 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! Political. W. C. Devecmon, of Cumberland, presided over the State Democratic Convention in Baltimore Thursday ; Jasper N. Willison, of same city, was a member of the Committee on Resolu tions and elected a Delegate-at-Earge to the National Convention, and Dr. J. Marshall Price, of this place, was a member of the Committee on Creden tials. Wedded. Announcement has been received here of the wedding of Miss Emma Estelle Engleby to Mr. Samuel Terry Bowie, both of Roanoke, Va., in that city Wednesday, May 15, 1912. The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph T. Engleby, formerly of this place, and a niece of Mrs. Davisson Armstrong. Pantomime and Drama.

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 qualitj 7 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 letiratnre; to the sturdy 7 character of its people as near-descend ants of the best blood of England, 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 JourNAr, 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 7 . 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. Anniversary—lnstallation. The 23d anniversary of the found ing of the Epworth Eeague was com memorated in the First M. E. Church Thursday evening, 16th inst.

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. I We sat one night in our lonely hut, And for salad we sure did howl— I ’Til Charlie pulled the windows shut, And lo ! the very air grew foul ! I SEQUEL I 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 ! Gen. Kear Hosken. Married.

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 y 7 ards 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 every 7 one 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. Olin Gunnett is president, and Ralph Wilson secretary of the Company. 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 C3 7 linder, two fly-wheels and the other indispensable accessories— all arranged for the use of natural gas. The most conspicuous economical . feature is ihe 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 7 . 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 jn Gladstone Annex, Wed • nesday evening, for the benefit of l “The Braddock Mile-Stone Fund.” It was a “ladies 01113 7 ” part3 7 , 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 1 of the town’s gentlemen. The “Braddock Mile-Stone,” the : Journal reiterates, should be placed i on the side of the Braddock road, at a • place where the old highway is dis : tiuctl3 7 marked, and both protected by an enduring enclosure and shelter! > Along this road George Washington passed—at least three round-trips, twice 011 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!

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 1 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 famouv, Arab stallions, so that what is known as an . Andalusian, or Spanish, horse has al 7 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 j pure-blood animals. ) _ „ Marriage License. , Archie Herbert Plummer and Stella t Cathcart, both of Shaft.

Of 1,447 registered votes only 439 were cast, less than 31 per cent. The proposition provided for an issue of 150,000 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 Order of the Eastern Star helped Ex-Mayor and Mrs. James H. Fuller memorialize the 25th anniversary of their wedding Tuesday evening, 14th inst., at their home, 102 Wood street. The function was a gratifying sur prise to the couple, both of whom have many friends. The ladies, of course, assumed care of Mrs. Fuller, while the gentlemen “seconded the motion” by ( making the occasion delightful to the ' “silver groom.” The 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.

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 33>j 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 Journai, 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. | Baltimore & Ohio I EXCURSION TO M9KEESPORT 7XND PITTSBURG KND RETURN SUNDAY, MAY 19th bound nn from TBIP CUMBERLAND Special Train leaves at 7 a. m.
