Eancaster, of Eckhart, asked for news the other day, said “it is re ported that a Parkersburg lady has determined to give up all slang ex cept fther and 7ther.” Poets refer to the sun as rosy, red and yellow, but a German astronomer contends that it is blue.

The Mayor and Council of the Town of Frostburg should adopt and en force a regulation prohibiting driving cows to and from pasture over any part of any paved street. After taxing property-owners twice for such improvements—regular and special, they should be protected from the unsightly defacements and un sanitary defilements that can be pre vented. People who will keep cows should be required to use the alleys for driv ing- otherwise, gentlemen, to discrimi nate thus against the people whom you have specially taxed is but little less than a crime! Died. In Allegany Wednesday, June 5, 1912, Miss Rebecca Musteller, aged 60 years. Two sisters are bereaved— Miss Ruth Musteller and Mrs. John Edwards, both of same place. At the home of his uncle, ex-Mayor George A. Kean, Cumberland, Wed nesday, May 29, 1912, George Thomas Kean, aged 5 years, son of Thomas B. Kean, of that city, and grand-son of Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Decker, of this place. His mother died at the time of his birth. “He was a bright, hand some little fellow,” says the Cumber land American , “and a general favor ite of all the residents of the neigh borhood.” New Lease of Life. The people of Shawmut, Pa., lately about to let their town go out of ex istence, have reconsidered the matter and will keep it going. During the last two years 100 fami lies moved away, owing to the fact that the coal veins from which the people gained a livelihood were worked out and the mines abandoned. But, “prospecting,” that has been quietly going on several months, has resulted in the discovery of new and better veins of coal, a little deeper than the old, but of such dimensions and basins as not only to warrant the opening of extensive mines, but such as assure the steady employment of villagers for at least 15 years. The announcement of the prospect ive revival of work therefore won out, and already some of the families that have moved away are going back into their old homes. For 20 years or more it had been prominent as a bituminous center, the coal from its mines being of a charac ter that gave it a premium value for furnace and smith work. The lower basin produces a grade of coal some what harder than the ordinarj- run of bituminous. Know Paint. There’s a paint-education in this ad vertisement. liny the job, not gallon. Buy by the paint put-on; that’s the job. The price of paint is so much a gal lon; that can’t be helped, but amounts to nothing. The price of painting is so much a day; that can’t be helped, but amounts to nothing. Put them together. How can you do it? You’ve got to or lose perhaps half of your money. Devoe, 10 gallons enough for the average job; an average paint, 15. Now reckon your costs. Count labor a day for a gallon. Devoe 10 days; the other 15. Devoe about SSO; the average paint about S7O or $80; the dearer the labor the bigger the difference, always that way. But that’s for the job. How long is it going to last? One twice as long as the other. DEVOE J. W. Shea, Agent. • sells it. 8.-B. Sunny Jim’s Day of Grief “Senator,” said Vice-President Sherman to Senator Pomerene, of • Ohio, taking him outside the chamber ( into the marble room, “I am in great • trouble.” “Why, what’s the matter?” asked •! Mr. Pomerene, who is a democrat. “My grandmother is very ill, and I ! would like you to take the chair and preside over the Senate this afternoon while I hurry to her bedside.” Senator Pomerene took the chair, , and half an hour later “Sunny Jim” 1 Sherman was sitting in a box cheering himself hoarse as the Nationals in the second inning made three runs and tied the score with Boston. —Washing- ton Post. Piedmont vs. Frostburg The game here last Sunday was “called” at the end of the 7th inning on account of rain, the score then standing a tie —7 to 7. Piedmont had the better of the ar gument up to the 7th, leading the home team by 7 to 3. Just then Michael Hoban was sent in to bat for McDade and he responded with a three-base wallop, starting a rally that tied the score. Midland Games Midland has been doing some good playing this season—6 games, win ning 5, losing 1. Decoration Day Eonaconing was de feated by 5 to 3. Saturday, Ist inst., Piedmont lost by 7 to 3, and— Next day (Sunday) Eonaconing lost again by 9 to 0. On the other hand, Cumberland has played 2 games, winning 1, losing 1; Piedmont 5 games, winning 2, losing 2, tied 1; Eonaconing 2 games, losing both, and Westernport 1, losing 1. Speculation This should be a good season, and when Eonaconing gets going it will cut considerable figure in the run nings. Just now there is some dis satisfaction among themselves, but Tom Stakem expects to smoothe the ruffles out soon. Grindle and Flynn, now playing with Piedmont, will go back to Eonaconing soon as Kelly and Eaughlin reach home from school. At this moment Kelly is captain and first baseman of the St. Mary’s Col lege team, Emmittsburg, and Eaugh lin is in left field for same team, both playing great ball. Paddy Stakem pitched a great game for Midland last Sunday. He shut the Eonaconing team out; not only so, but up to the 9th inning never allowed a hit. In this number, with two men down, Barracks Brown scratched out the only hit the visiting team got. Tribute to Base-Ball Read what Elbert Hubbard printed lately: “Now that the robins are here and the chirp of the blue-bird is heard in the land, and the sun is coming out, we look forward to the base-ball season. “Americans are great and good sports, and at the base-ball ground we all meet on American equality. “Each fan is as good as any other fan, even if not better. “We jostle, we smile, we push, we joke, we laugh. “On the base-ball ground every thing goes, troubles are forgotten, cares kiboshed, prejudices laid aside. “To watch a game of base-ball is a great relaxation of the nerves, and one thing especially good about base ball enjoyment is—ventilation is always good!” Coming Events The Frostburg team will go to Piedmont this (Saturday) afternoon to play with the team of that town. The EaSalle Institute team, of Cum berland, will play the Beall High School aggregation in the Park here this (Saturday) afternoon at 3 o’clock. The game will be incidental to the Beall High School picnic. Holds Highest Office. Rev. G. E. Metger, of this place, was elected President of Somerset Classis, Reformed church, at the an nual meeting, Glade Church, Berlin, Pa., last week. Axiomatic. Most of us forget rather than for give because it Is easier.—Puck. Not Democratic. It is related that a democratic United States Senator of West Vir ginia sent the latest edition of the Patent Office Report to a constituent and received acknowledgment about as follows: “Dear Senator—l got them speeches o’ yourn, but I couldn’t read ’em through. Caze why? Thar war too much protection docterin’ into em.” Applicable Here. The Health Report of North Yakima, Washington, for April, recites the conditions under which children are kept from and permitted to attend school. It has been the rule to permit none from families wherein there is a case of measles or chickenpox, whether or not such children are protected by a previous attack, to attend, but all shall be allowed to return to school when they can furnish satisfactory proof that they have had and recovered from the disease for which the houses were placarded. The report makes a good point in the following paragraph : “There is no finer dairy country than that of the Yakima Valley, but it will never receive the consideration to which it is entitled, nor will the dairy men as a class achieve the highest possible measure of success until the same study, the same care and atten tion is given to the dairying that is now given the fruit industry of the valley.” One reads much, and when the tree doctors come around, no less is heard of the vital importance of “spray ing,” etc., but how much is ever said of treatment for “unclean conditions existing in and around the source of milk production, such as dirty cows, dirty, dusty barns, manure accumula tions in or near the place of milking, dirty utensils, unclean milkers, and improper cooling, storing, etc., of the milk? ” The report concludes with two vital paragraphs: “The arrival of the fly season makes it urgent that all garbage, manure and other refuse which could serve as a breeding place for flies should be kept covered at all times. Property-covered metalic garbage cans are not expens ive and are efficient when kept covered. Tight manure boxes of totigue-and groove boards, with a fly-tight cover, so made as to contain not over one week’s accumulation, should be in stalled wherever one or more horses or cows are kept, and no droppings should be allowed to remain and ac . cumulate on the barn-floor or in the ; corral. “Effective trapping done at this time will also materially contribute to reduce the number of flies.” THE CHURCHES.

Lewis Beeman Brown, well remembered here, has gone into the “land records” of Baltimore, and found that a “lane,” named “Maid en’s Choice,” first belonged to Thomas Cole, and was by him conveyed to Mrs. Charles Gorsuch in 1679, or 233 years ago. Whatever the dispute over the “lane” may have been, it seems a shame that anybody should look into “land records” to settle it. Not As He Used To Do. The devil was piqued such saintship to behold, And longed to tempt him like good Job of old; But Satan now is wiser than of yore, And tempts by making rich, not mak ing poor Alexander Pope. Couldu’t Please Him. It is reported , that somebody sug gested recently to David Cronin, once a newspaper man in Frostburg, that a new Pennsylvania town should be named Brickwood. David objected on the ground that there is nothing about the town to make the name appropriate. In his own words— “ There isn’t a brick in the town!” “Nor,” said the friend, “is there a cultivated rock in Rockwood!” David shuffled at this, but his friend kept on: “Tell you what we’ll do, Dave; you live in Confluence; suppose we call this Influence! What say you?” “Well, there isn’t a darned bit of that in it, either!” responded Dave, hopelessly. The town is still nameless. Re-Appoiatmeut. Wednesday evening John Chambers received notice of re-appointment as Justice of the. Peace. Thursday morning he went to Cum berland, qualified, and at 10 o’clock resumed business where he left off a month before. The town has four judges now.
