While enjoying a professional stop
page in Mt. Savage some time ago
Gen. Kear Hosken was thrilled with
an alarm of “fire!”
“Did the fire department turn out?”
asked the Journal.
“It did not!” replied the General,
“although I know both members are
as good fellows as there are any
“What was their excuse?”
“Only that ‘this is wash-day and
both our red shirts are either in the
tub or just on the line, and neither of
us will turn out except in uniform!’ ”
A Big Automobile.
The birth-day gift of a big “Cad
illac” automobile by William R.
Gunter, Hotel Gladstone landlord, to
his son —David E., came to town last
Saturday, H. W. Glisan, of Cumber
land, making the delivery.
At once it was proposed to give it
the initial test by a round-trip to John
sons — 7)4 miles, and the Journal
was invited.
If any difference, the up-hill fly was
swifter than down-hill home. The
Journal timed the latter carefully
and tabbed it as 3)4 miles in
minutes, a mile in less than 3 minutes,
or over 21 miles an hour, allowing
nothing for several slow-ups on ac
count of other travel. Meanwhile,
Mr. Glisan was showing David how to
manipulate the running-gear, etc.
The machine is large and powerful,
and will unquestionably be of great
and comfortable service to Gladstone
Endorses the Governor.
Govenor Goldsborough is going
about the building and improvement of
Maryland roads in a very thorough and
businesslike manner. The “stitch in
time” plan of the new Commission is
an excellent one and will, if adopted
save many a dollar of the taxpayers’
money. Although it would be ideal
to have model roads over the entire
State it is too soon for that, considering
the money available at present. The
next best thing is a series of exten
sive throughfares—much traveled
arteries—properly maintained and
more road building at moderate cost.

Board Completed and Organized.
As indicated in the Journal last
week, Messrs. Roberdeau Annan,
- Walter W. Wittig, William R. Gunter
and Dr. Timothy Griffith, guberna

pital Board, met Monday evening and
; after completing the Board by select

f ganized as follows:
, President—Dr. Timothy Griffith.
Secretary—Walter W. Wittig.
; Treasurer —Roberdeau Annan.

1, To confer with the Mayor and

2, To investigate hospital methods

> At a meeting of the County Commis

' Allen Luke, of the town of Luke,
1 headed a delegation which proposed
to the Commissioners that for an in

they—the Messrs. Luke, would donate
; therefor a site, worth at the very least,
: $6,000, and $4,000 in cash.
The Commissioners jumped at the
' proposition, accepting it at once.

Change for the Better.
Then, too, one may notice that phy
sicians and lawyers and other wise
men always hold their conventions in
summer, and, invariably at the sea
shore Baltimore Evening Sun.
And not a few still “other wise
men” are beginning to abandon the
malaria of “the seashore” to adopt
the ozone of Frostburg.
Two State Conventions already held
here this year, and more to follow.
Crushed to Death.
Miss Eleanor Crowe, 18 years old,
formerly of this place, was crushed to
death last Saturday afternoon in an
elevator of the Monongah Glass Com
pany’s Works, Fairmont, W. Va.
She and Miss Nellie Sypult, 18 years
old, of Fairmont, were on the ele
vator, when it started upward, catch
ing them between the platform and a
floor, crushing both to death.
All the circumstances indicate that
the fatality was an accident for which
no one was to blame. It occurred
during the noon hour, when relaxation
was the rule. Although warned by
signs, they did not really think that
play with the elevator was dangerous.
But they were mistaken, and in less
time than it takes to narrate the
tragedy, both lives were crushed out
by a three-ton squeeze of their com
paratively frail bodies.
The body of Miss Crowe was at once
brought here and funeral services in
St. MichaH’s Church were held Tues
day morning; interment in the Porter
The young lady was one of several
children—a daughter of Mrs. Syl
vester Crowe, whose husband died
several years ago. The family had
lived in Fairmont only a short time.
In future, the faces of the clocks in
France will show 24 hours in their
faces, and strike the full numbers
from one to twenty-four in announc
ing the passing of each hour of the
In each 24 hours there will be 300
strokes, compared with 78 under the
12-hour run.
Hurt Agaia.
Noah Hendley, ex-Sheriff, was hurt
Tuesday while at work in a planing
mill, in Cumberland. A flying board
struck him in the side, breaking a rib
and bruising him painfully.
Hotel Gladstoae.
William R. Gunter, proprietor of
Hotel Gladstone, has lately purchased
the 82-acre farm of Simon Weimer,
about six miles from town, in Garrett
county, and proposes to operate it as
subsidiary and tributary to the hotel.
In other words, it will be conducted
as a huge garden for the growth of
vegetables, fruits—even of' choice
It is contemplated, too, to add to
this plant another tract of grazing
land whereon to raise and graze cows,
produce milk, cream and butter es
pecially for hotel consumption.
Between the farms and hotel the
new auto, supplemented by a truck,
will fly, carrying hotel offal, edible for
stock, one way; farm and dairy pro
ducts the other.
The plan is very comprehensive,
and, carried out, will unquestionably
subserve many economies now unat
The Gladstone is already one of the
model hotels of the State in comfort
able accommodations and fare. In
clude its altitude and scenic environ
ment, and there is none superior.

A Dastardly Act.
Henry Wilson, of Harrisburg', Pa.,
both legs gone and moving around on
the short stumps left, Saturday even
ing, soliciting help to get artificial
limbs, collected a considerable num
ber of silver coins.
This was observed by a man who,
it is believed, lives about two miles
Anyway, about 2 o’clock Sunday
morning the poor fellow was “held
up” in front of the St. Cloud Hotel by
a man whose face was hidden by a
handkerchief, presenting a revolver
and demanding unconditional surren
der of all collections.
Instead of so complying, Wilson
emitted a yell for help which brought
ex-judge E. J. Decker, proprietor, to
the rescue. Meanwhile, the robber
hit Wilson on the nose, slipped over
the street and disappeared.
The landlord took the bleeding
cripple in and cared for him the re
mainder of the night.
It is an immense pity that a police
man was not nearby.
“Ignorance is Bliss.”
A Montana paper says—
“A self-made man is usually in such
a hurry to finish the job that he
neglects to add the finishing touches.”
There are one, two, three, etc., of
him in Prostburg, but in each in
stance he doesn’t know yet that he is
He is going along under the con
viction that there is nothing more to
Without knowing it, too, he treats
his town as if that also were finished.
Symmetry vs. Anomaly.
In the last analysis it must be con
ceded —
1, That a painter can paint a house
better than a plumber;—
2, That a dentist can extract a
tooth better than a blacksmith; —
3, That a surgeon can remove a
tumor better than a pastor;—
4, That the general manager can
run a railroad better than a Congress
man; —
5, That a lawyer can interpret a
legal technicality better than a public
meeting, and—
6, That the Journal can reflect
more patriotic credit upon home ad
vertisers than newspapers published
in the interest of other communities.
(iood Purpose—Good People.
Two sets of people were generous
Tuesday afternoon —the management
of the Frostburg Opera House and the
Frostburg Illuminating and Manufac
turing Company.
The one gave half of the matinee
receipts to the fund for improving the
grounds of Beall High School, and the
other furnished the electric power
necessary to propel the moving-pic
ture machinery for reproducing Scott’s
“Eady of the Eake” on the Opera
House screen.
The pictures were among the best
ever presented here, and the purpose
which won the audiences was most
They Are Coming.
Miss Haidee W. Frost, Kansas City,
Mo., writes—
“l want to thank the committee for
the very pretty invitation to the
Home-Coming in August. It is very
nicely gotten up indeed. I feel sure
the whole week will be a grand one
in the memory of very many home
comers. I am thinking a great deal
about it, and I certainly will enjoy
seeing my friends again.”

The Blessing of Ready fasti!
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
“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.
