HENRY F . COOK, Manager. FROSTBURG, MD. - - MAY 25, 1912 PERSONAL. Mr. and Mrs. Charles Coker, of Joliet, 111., are guests of William Price. Mrs. Coker’s father, West Union street. Miss Susan Colborn has gone to Winchester, Va., o:i a brief visit to her sister—Mrs. Janies P. Reardon. Mrs. Peter Langley and son and Mrs. George Martin, of Cumberland, visited friends in Frostburg Thursday. Mrs. George Aldom has returned from a visit of several weeks to rela tives in Turtle Creek and Pittsburg, Pa. Miss Nellie Pressman, of Union town, Pa., is visiting her former home here. She is a daughter of Jacob Pressman, Washington street. H. V. Hesse, general manager of the Maryland Division of the Consoli dation Coal Company, paid the city of Pittsburg, Pa., a business visit this week. Mrs. James Little, of Portsmouth, Ohio, arrived Tuesday, and with her husband, Col. James Little, has been the guest of Mr. and Mrs. James L. Carson, Loo street, until yesterday, when they went to Lonaconing. “Miss Jane Nesbitt, a trained nurse of Frostburg,” says the Piedmont (W. Va.) Herald of Friday of last week, “who has been nursing the little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Barnard, of Western port, will leave next week for her home, the little girl being much better.” Frank J. McMahon was in town Wednesday and reported that all rumors of Cumberland politicians quitting politics must be discounted at higher than commercial rates. “An Irishman may leave Ireland,” said Frank, “but a Dutchman, once in politics, never tries to get out.” Very many Frostburg residents were gladdened this week by a visit from Rev. F. R. Wagner, of Huntingdon, Pa., a former pastor of St. Paul’s Lu theran Church. A little purely pri vate business brought Mr. Wagner to town, which, transacted, he hastened home—until the last week in August, “when,” he says, “the entire family is coming.” Mr. Wagner looks well, and is genial as ever. Interesting Occasion. The second annual Inter-Society de bate between the Belles-Lettres and Athenian Societies of Beall High School was held in Assembly Hall of that institution Thursday evening. The following program was ren dered, each participant executing her and his role ye ry creditably: “Maryland, My Maryland” Audience Instrumental Duet— “ The Ride of Triumph”— Margaret Betz and Gladys Duggan Address Rhoda Logsdon Mandolin Selection Lindley Rank accompanied by Lawrence Rank Reading— “Budge’s Version of the Flood” — Eleanor Smyth Piano Solo— “ Love Dreams” — Ada Lewis Vocal Solo— “ Whisper and I Shall Hear”— Myrtle Williams Debate— Resolved: That the Constitution of Maryland should be amended so as to provide for the Initiative, Referen dum and Recall. Affirmative Negative Kathleen Crowe Lyall Crissman Velma Neal Martha Parker Robert McMannis Raymond Spitznas Violin Solo Selected Walter Jeffries The affirmative was championed by representatives of the Belles Lettres Literary Society and the negative by representatives of the Athenian So ciety. The judges were Prof. A. F. Smith, principal of Central High School Lona coning; Rev. B. F. Bray, of First Baptist Church, and Miss Clara M. Hyde, of the Normal School faculty. The decision was rendered in favor of the negative and Lyall Crissman, leader of that side, was chosen as best speaker. Altogether, the affair was very en tertaining and instructive. After singing the “Star Spangled Banner” the entertainment closed. The Sick. Samuel Mears, injured in an Eck hart mine recently, is improving. Thomas Crump, badly wounded in the jaw sometime ago by a gun-shot, is going around and saying he is feel ing all right. Mr. and Mrs. Harry Lehr and son— Franklin, are in Altoona, Pa., visiting relatives. Mrs. Arthur Baker, Mrs. E. L. Betz and daughter—Miss Josephine, have returned from a visit to Mr. and Mrs. W. Frank Munn, Hagerstown, Md. Old Papers. In the ruins of the Engle building were found this week a number of legal papers executed by the late H. B. Shaffer, justice of the peace, in ' 1857. ■ This was the first house in Frost burg occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Shaffer when they settled here in 1855. Two years later Mr. Shaffer was ap pointed justice of the peace and served one year. Two of the papers are distraint warrants for collection of delinquent rentals, and all are in excellent con dition. It is needless to say that the family of daughters and sons will preserve them. They Are Coming. F. P. Byrne, a prominent business resident of Detroit, Michigan, now at Mt. Clemens, that State, writes to Prof. P. O’Rourke, of this place, ac knowledging the receipt of a picture card illustrating the old toll-house: “The picture was a happy choice for me, as it arouses memories of more than a half century ago, when, as a lad, going to the old log school-house on the old road below the Six-Mile House, I made the toll-house a sort of half-way resting-place. “The electric car was not dreamed of then. “I shall certainly make an effort to be with you during the last week in August, as I shall certainly see some of the “old boys” who will be sure to return home.” Prof. O’Rourke remembers Mr. Byrne as an elegant young man, “hale fellow well-met,” and one who was a chum of the late Charles H. Walker. He lived at Clarysville, and the schoolboys of to-day might contem plate with admiration the pluck of those who walked from that place to Allegany Grove to school.

The Shea Building, Hotel Gladstone and Hotel St. Cloud were quite elabo rately decorated with flags and bunt ing Tuesday, Wednesday and Thurs day, in recognition of the assembly here of the State Convention of the Fraternal Order of Eagles, and other buildings iu more or less degree attested notice of the same event. The first meeting was a public recep tion occasion, in the Eagles’ hall, Shea building, Tuesday afternoon, Mayor John J. Price extending official wel come and handing over “the keys Of the city.” Wednesday there were two sessions; a banquet and a reception in the Aerie, and a ball in Stanton’s Opera House. At the meeting Wednesday officers for current year were elected as fol lows: State President—P. G. Gowden, of Cumberland. State Vice-President —Bernard Hughes, of Frostburg. State Conductor—J. C. Weisener, of Hagerstown. State Chaplain—A. Z. Lee, of Kitz millerville. State Secretary—Albert Neuhahn, of Baltimore. State Treasurer—J. T. Hayden, of Frederick. State Trustees —Frederick Kerns, of Kitzmiller; John Wickerscheim, of Cumberland, and C. W. Suter, of Brunswick. State Inner Guard—C. E. Schell, of Frederick. State Outer Guard—William Crowe, of Frostburg. State Physician—Dr. G. A. Theide, of Baltimore. A resolution of thanks to Frostburg Aerie, No. 1273, for generously hos hitable reception and treatment was unanimously adopted. After the sessions each day the delegates would explore mines, visit Dan’s Rock, or attend the ball games. The closing session was held Thursday. Dances. Frostburg Lodge, No. 70, B. P. O. Elks, had a dance and card party due in their lodge halls, Eleanor Building, last evening. An enjoyable time had been provided for. Grahamton Gleanings. Bailiff Robert Simpson being ab sent from town attending the State Convention of Eagles in Frostburg, police protection by day has been scarce this week. But First Councilman Isaac Yates has been out a good deal watching and cheering the good-roads game the County Directors are now playing, and that makes up a good deal for the Bailiff’s absence. The First Councilman is one of the most enthusiastic good-road fans in the State, for every time John Tiley, the boss, makes a good hit, he cheers to beat the orchestra. Eckhart Echoes. The members of the committee in charge of the Eckhart cemetery are having it cleaned up and put in first class condition for Memorial Day. The graveyard has been enlarged and a good, substantial fence encloses it. : Several new and costly monuments have been erected and, altogether, the general appearance is very creditable to those who are trying to make it as nice as possible. I am heartily in accord with the : Journal’s editorials of past years with regard to Memorial Day. I think ■ we ought to try and spare a few flowers only for the gravesof those who wore the Blue and the Grey. The familiar figure of Charles H. : Walker will be missed at Eckhart this year. He always took a leading part in Old-Soldier functions, and was held in high esteem by all pur people. Mrs. Frank Porter, visiting among her old friends and relatives here dur ing the past few weeks, returned to her home in Oak Hill, W. Va., sev ! eral days ago. Mrs. Porter says they ; like their new home in W. Va., and ’ speaks very highly of Oak Hill as a nice place to live. Miss Margaret Byrnes has returned : to her home in Fairmont, W. Va., : after a delightful stay of several i weeks among old acquaintances. : She took little Miss Anna Byrnes, : daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard : Byrnes, with her for a short visit to Fairmont. 1 Dr. Wilson, our popular young phy ( sician, is making splendid use of his L new Ford runabout by giving his con , valescing patients—Russell Barnard, " Glen Herman and others, rides for their health. . Thomas Blake recently purchased - James M. Mair’s carpet-weaving out l fit and is building up a big trade. He does nice work and is a very worthy, : reliable young man. He will shortly - remove his loom to the room on the E National Pike, vacated by ex-Justice ) E. J. Decker, now landlord of the Hotel St. Cloud, Frostburg. Died. ; At the residence of Mr. and Mrs. - William Crowe, No. 43, Broadway, - Saturday morning, May 19, 1912, Miss - Helen Tennant, aged 68 years and 3 7 days, after a protracted illness. Miss ; Tennant was a daughter of the late r Mr. Robert and Mrs. Janet Tennant, 5 and the last of her family. Father, mother, four sisters and six brothers - preceded her to the home beyond, i She was born May 16, 1844, and in r early womanhood united with St. - Paul’s Lutheran Church, living there- E after an humble, consistent, exem plary Christian life. Her religious ; faith supported her during her de ; dining years and led her to long for l the peace and joy of her future home. Under auspices of the church and i pastor, Rev. F. H. Crissman, the re - mains were interred in the Percy cemetery Monday afternoon. f At her home in Vale summit Tues day morning, May 21, 1912, Mrs. Pat -1 rick McGann, aged 71 years. Three sons are bereaved—James, of Vale f Summit, and Frank and Michael, of Connellsville, Pa. Mrs. McGann was ■ one of the first residents of Vale Summit, living there man'y years > while the town was called “Pompey Smash.” Her husband died about f three years ago. At the family home, West Union ' street, Sunday afternoon, May 19, E 1912, Alexina Electa Porter, aged 75 years, widow of the late John L. Por , ter, after a distressing illness of many c years. Mrs. Porter was born at Waynesboro, Pa.; educated at the ’ Visitation Convent, Frederick, this State, and had been a resident of ’ Frostburg since her wedding, about 50 years ago. Three daughters are • bereaved—Mrs. H. A. V. Parker, of " Portsmouth, Va., and Misses Kath -5 arine A. and Bernadette P., of this place. Mrs. Porter was a most esti " mable lady, and her life was full of 1 duties well done and charities extend j ed. Her long and distressing illness 1 was alike a great trial to herself and the two daughters at home, but all were Christian-like in full resignation on the one part and filial devotion on the other. The funeral was held in St. ) Michael’s Church Wednesday morning, Rev. J. S. Cuddy conducting the ser j vice. The pallbearers were Messrs. Howard Hitchins, H. B. Colborn, Olin R. Rice, Otto Hohing and Dr. J. Mar shall Price, of this place, and Hugh A. McMullen, of Cumberland. The . floral tributes were numerous and ; beautiful, representing the affection , and esteem of many who knew her. > In Eckhart Friday, May 17, 1912, Mr. John Lancaster, in the 86th year s of his age. Mr. Lancaster was a ’ member of Thoburn Post, No. 71, G. ; a. r„ of this place. He was a valiant Union soldier, having served nearly [ three years in the ranks. He resided with his son—John, about 8 years, the latter, with one brother —Joseph, be ? ing all of the family now living. Fun i eral was held Monday; interment in , Porter cemetery. Musical. At Syi o’clock last (Friday) evening a concert was announced for the band -1 stand, corner of Frostburg Opera ; House, by the German Arion Band — . the first of a weekly series projected . for this summer. 1— Brevities. 5 Over in a Pennsylvania town where 2 two new churches are getting finish -2 itig touches the newspaper is inclined s to brag on the community’s goodness. But it is questionable whether a town 2 that really mixes religion with its s business will boast of it. On the con -5 trary, it would leave that sort of thing f to the town that injects business into 3 its religion. Go For It Directly and Quickly. ! One leading citizen says — “The Journal is right about the 3 post-office building proposition. We ought to have the two-story building— r if we can get it .” I That is not cheering. j If the people are going to work to . get the two-story building under the f inspiration and impetus of the sub j junctive mood, they will fail! A Worthy Enterprise. i Saturday, June Bth, will be a day which should signalize a big turn-out } to a picnic in Junior Order Park, to be held for the benefit of the Improve ,t ment Fund of the Beall High School [ grounds—one of the greatest of the 3 town’s needs. If the plans projected by G. G. Townsend, trustee, could be material ized, enclosure would be a model s school ground. These include grad ing, sloping, terracing, sites for a ’ base-ball area, tennis-courts and a play-ground in general, respectable fencing, tree-planting and grass-plat- I ting. Of seevral demands upon the public e for improvements this is not the least. , Indeed, in view of all that is going T on around the property this demand e is not only big but urgent, e Hence, people, patronize the picnic e and all other means to the same end liberally as possible. f A Plain Statement of Facts! | Have You S2O, S2OO or S2OOO ? | I You should invest it to bring the Largest Interest or Quickest | l\ Profit without Risking the Money p X YOU KNOW the City is growing steadily Eastward along the National Pike.

L t Excellent Policy. I In a statement concerning road ; building Gov. Goldsborough explains - delay in movement to the time it is - taking to audit the books of the for i trier State Commission iu order to as certain the amount of work that can be done with the means available. In his own words— “l am satisfied that in going into > this matter thoroughly before taking on new construction I am acting for 1 the best interests of the people and ” that results will show it. 1 “There is a policy for which I stand, and it is my purpose to see to its execution, viz: “First —That more miles of road : shall be built throughout the State. Second —That they shall be built at 1 less cost per mile than in the past. . “ Third —That they shall be more 1 quickly built.” s This is certainly a good platform— - better than usual because it appears r after instead of during a campaign. j Of his excellent Allegany appointee he says— “ Mr. Ramsay is a Republican and a man of large business affairs, having built up and now conducting an ex . tensive brick and tile manufacturing business at Mount Savage, Md. He is I accustomed to handling large business interests and most successfully, as evidenced by what he has accom , plished in the conduct of the affairs of the Andrew Ramsay Company, of I which corporation he is the president and principal stockholder. “Mr. Ramsay is an enthusiast on the subject of road construction and has consented to accept this trust, not be ? cause of the salary the office t carries, but because of intense per -5 sonal interest in this splendid internal ' improvement which the people of 1 Maryland want builded within her 5 borders. ’ ’ Later —A large automobile party, . comprising about eight machines from - Cumberland and over a dozen from 1 this place, met the Governor about 12 - o’clock yesterday at Johnsons. i A few minutes run brought them to i Frostburg, where, in the lobby of Hotel ; Gladstone, many citizens paid their - respects.
