THE FUTURE OF THE GEORGES
CREEK COAL REGION. I r
Each reader of this paper should
look at the article under above head
ing printed on first page.
That is, after reading the synopsis
of a statement in the Bonaconing
Advocate last week, he should es
pecially read and consider the Jour
nal’s discoveries in the same con- ■
nection —discoveries made in question
of authentic sources of information,
and see for himself the foundation
whereon he can build for himself and
descendants for generations to come.
He should look at all the figures in
that article; consider the probability
of utilizing the shale as raw material
for road-beds; the larger areas of the
four lower veins named in the analysis
and however pessimistic he may be at
times, it will dawn upon him sooner
or later that the Georges Creek coal
region is yet almost immeasurably
rich in undeveloped wealth for this
and centuries to come!
The facts here given should be
treasured by some great Frostburg
orator as bases for eloquent statement
to Home-Comers next August, to the
end that each may see that by leaving
the old hearth-stone he has become
an exile from Arcadia —that he has
left a vale whose Saturnian age is yet
to come, and that some day erelong
“the city on the hill” will outshine
all those “of the plain.”
EASTERN-SHORE EXAMPLE.
The Baltimore News, referring to
the liberality of the Senate Committee
on Public Buildings and Grounds in
giving Senator Smith, of this State,
more than he asked for in appropria
tions for public buildings in Salisbury
and Crisfield, says of the Eastern
Shore —
“It has never been noted for back
wardness in asking for what it wants.
It has been known to holler long and
loud when it received even more than
it was fairly entitled to.”
Isn’t this a suggestion for Frost
burg?
If Eastern-Shore people have the
sort of enterprise which.—
1, Asks for what it wants, and—
2, On that account gets it—
Why haven’t Frostburg people the
same “get-up and get-there?”
“A one-story government building
in a three-story town” doesn’t sound
well, and will look worse. ,
WHAT IS A BILLION ?
According to the Englsh system of
numeration, a billion is ,a million
millions; according to the French—
the more logical system, a billion is
one thousand millions.
When, therefore, it is said there are
five billion tons of coal in the George’s
Creek coal region yet undeveloped,
that means five thousand million tons !
And if that amount of coal be worth
six billion dollars, that means six
thousand million dollars !
If all that coal belonged to, say
twenty thousand George’s Creek peo
ple, each would be worth three hun
dred thousand dollars !
Never since God gave the fruitful
land of Canaan to the children of
Israel has so rich a heritage been
bequeathed to any people !

Birthday Surprise.
The 21st birthday of Bradford Whet
stone overtook him a few days ago
and a party of his many friends sur
prised , him with a joyful incursion
into the home of his parents—Mr. and
Mrs. John Whetstone, Welsh Hill.
Important Snggestion.
While the reader may be thinking of
buying one of the many lots offered
for building a home of his own, it is
pertinent to remind him that if he
hasn’t money enough to consummate
his purpose as he wishes, the Equita
ble Savings and Boan Society of Frost
burg may be able to help him.
The Society’s plan is the only one
under which the borrower shares fully
with the lender in the profits of a loan.
In other words, it furnishes the only
agreement under which the borrower
can obtain interest upon the money
with which he pays a debt.
Book into this—either before or
after you buy a lot. *
A Fitting Appointment.
Gov. Goldsborough Wednesday ap
pointed Andrew Ramsay, of Mt.
Savage, a member of the State Roads
Commission, and Mr. Ramsay ac
cepted, qualified and went to Balti
more next day to attend a meeting of
the Commissioners Thursday.
During the same afternoon theGov
enor, Chairman Weller and Mr. Ram
say, of the Commission, left for Oak
land, whence, via Grantsville, they
started yesterday morning for an
automobile tour over the National
Pike to Baltimore—this as preliminary
to an effort to complete the restoration
of the great highway through Mary
land within two years.
The party will most probably pass
through Frostburg early this (Satur
day) forenoon.
The Cumberland Nezvs commends
the Governor’s selection and action as
follows:
“The appointment of Mr. Ramsay
will be the subject of hearty congratu
lation by a host of friends. His fit
ness for the position, his ability to get
results and his untiring energy,
coupled with an honesty of aim and
purpose that is characteristic, insure
faithful administration of the duties
of the office Governor Goldsborough
has chosen him to fill. His Excellency
is to be commended upon such an emi
nently suitable selection from the
many aspirants for the honor.”
To Ullaitiee,
On the Tenth Anniversary of Her
Birth, by Her Father.
My Daughter: r
The morning of a new, strange life, ?
Now, soon, will dawn for you ;
When childhood’s ways and childish •• e
b’lief
You’ll ever more eschew.
The slumb’ring maid—that is to be, ,
Bike opening buds in May, (
Will soon bloom forth unconsciously;— ;
It is Nature’s silent way. s
Then will you have a part to take s
In life’s economy;
And choose you must, for none may
take -
That great responsibility. t
’Tis true, a mother’s watchful care !
And counsel good and true,
May help you wisely to prepare (
The new life to pursue.
And to that end, fair daughter bright,
And with love increasing still, i
Your parents both will pray for the
Bight* i
To reveal the Master’s will.

He Went On.
One evening this week two well
known residents —one a sinner, the
other a Christian, met on a town cor
ner.
The Ty Cobb issue came up, the
sinner “siding” with Ty.
But the Christian said, reverently—
“ Jesus would not have done as Ty
did.”
“Why not?” asked the sinner.
“Well, there is nothing in His whole
life’s history to warrant such conduct
—nothing in word or deed.
“He did His duty and went on.
“He never asked—‘what’s the use?’
“Peter said—‘l go a-fishing,’ and
others said —‘we go also,’ but He
went on.
“He healed ten lepers, but only one
came back to thank Him. He went
healing.
“Had His path lay through that
bare-ball park; had He been appealed
to, He would have said—‘Ty, stay thy
hand, and go on—playing!”
Interpreted, these expressions mean
—resent no offence, no slight, no in
. suit, but “go on” in your own known
line of duty.
Coming Events.

Games
r The announcement early in the

f Right or Wrong?
Was Ty Cobb right or wrong in
•- whipping a spectator in the American
i- Eeague Park, New York, one day last
:- week, for calling him by the worst
y epithet known in the South?
n Thousands of people believe he
.1 was right, thousands that he was
y wrong.
n But the best answer to the question
■- of a Methodist minister in New York
the Journal has seen is in the sermon
s last Sunday:
“It is said the spectator who stared
the trouble had no hands, but if he
s used the epithet accredited so him
s it were better that he had no tongue.
“The public should demand that the
y management protect the players,
i- The men whom I know in the game
t- are manly gentlemen and deserve
:t only courteous treatment.
r, “But the man who leaps the barriei
d to pummel the spectator, howevei
e great the offense, sustains a loss in
s strength and personal dignity,
h “There is royalty in self-control,
y “The good old Bible must still be
i- our guide—-
e “ ‘He that ruleth his own spirit is
mightier than he that taketh a city.’ ’

f Misuse of Decoration Day.
i A Committee from the Department of
, Maryland,Grand Army of the Republic,
- called on Mayor Preston at the City
• Hall Tuesday morning and presented
r a written protest against the work
-1 horse parade on Memorial Day, May
i 30, in Baltimore.
Grand Army people here and friends
j of the Grand Army dead should make
r known in no uncertain terms their
1 dislike of the practice of many people
decorating on Decoration Day graves
other than those of soldiers.
„ The graves of soldiers only should
be decorated on that day, as the day
was set apart for the sole purpose of
- memorializing popular affection for
i the dead.
3 Indiscriminate decoration, there
fore, by families of their own dead on
a day not their own is close to sacri
lege.
' To Old Soldiers.
e Judge John Chambers wishes to in
• form all persons entitled to Soldiers’
e Pensions under the new law just
passed, that he is still doing business
at the old stand, and is fully prepared
to attend to all claims under the new
’ Pension Baw; also ready to give any
’ information desired in connection
therewith. He will be at the old place
next pension day, June 4th, to attend
- to all Pension Business as usual. *

i- The farm on which was fought and
won the battle of Bushy Run August
sth and 6th, 1763, between the colonists
e and Indians, Gen. Boquet command
e ing the former, located at or near
y Jeannette, Pa., was advertised for
p public sale on the 18th inst. and the
.t Dispatch, of that place, wanted the
i, State to buy and erect a monument
s- on it in memorial of the valor of
Pennsylvania soldiers.
This battle was fought eight years
after Braddock’s ill-fated campaign,
n indicating the stubbornness of the
n strife which found expression in the
it inscription on the Braddock-Road
it Mile-Post—“Our Count’s Rights
We Will Defend!”
e There were few settlers around the
s old mile-stone until population began
to grow after the revolution, but whe
n can measure this patriotic force
k inspired by the heroic declaration on
n the stone when the war of 181-
came on?
d Or who can say that Dennis Beall,
e living here, had never read that
n inscription when, in 1812, he helped
raise a company hereabout and went
e into service in defence of “Our Coun
i. try?”
e The daughters of the revolution
e have undertaken to care for the Mile-
Post, and now it is “up” to the people
:r to have the Government place at least
:r a two-story building on the spot
n where Capt. Dennis Beall lived wher
he left his home to defend “Our Coun
I. try.”
e In other words, the .Government
should do here in an adequate waj
s what the Dispatch thought Pennsyl
” vania should do for its heroes of 1763,
Subscriptions and Money Wanted.
The main point disclosed by the
meeting of the Home-Coming Com- i
mittee Monday evening are— <
1, That it is going to take consider- (
able money to materialize the plans
of the Committee* and — <
2, That it is not flowing into the ’
treasury as it should. i
But an enterprising spirit is abroad s
and, no doubt, “the means will be
ample to the end” when the time for i
ripening is ripe, which will be soon.
So subscribe to-day and pay not :
later than next Monday.

Fraud Paiut.
The worst mistake one is likely to
make in painting is wrong paint; it is
easy to make this year when paint is
so high.
We all say “Ours is the best;” and
there are 1000 of us, One is best; but
a dozen are so near on a level that no
one knows, for sure, that he is the one.
The worst paints are worst liars;
they know what they are, put-on a
bold face, and brazen it out.
Their one true argument is low
paint is always, must be, a fraud; it is
made to cheat cheatable people.

“In conformity with a regulation of

Citizen George H. Wittig asked fora
change of the few arcs for a greater
number of smaller lights on Frost
avenue. The arcs are high and their
light much impeded by the trees;
hence more smaller lights hung lower
would afford more illumination. Re- •*
quest referred to Street committee.
