Miropowlski, the famous woman lawyer of Paris who has gained special eminence by pleading in criminal courts, is shown in our illustra tion addressing one of the regular weekly meetings of the Paris bar. She al so has lectured in London and has been entertained by the judges there. Mile. Miropowlski believes women are of especial use at the bar in cases af fecting children, and would like to see mixed juries, but does not think the time ripe for the appointment of women judges. At The Selling End. “You made a mistake in your pa per!’’ said the indignant man, enter ing the editorial sanctum. “I was one of the competitors at the athletic match last week, and you called me ‘the well-known light-weight cham pion !’ ” “Well, aren’t you ?” asked the editor. “No, I’m nothing of the kind, and : t’s confounded awkward—because, roll see. I’m a coal merchant !” Big Time. The Journal has a cop} 7 of the last forecast of the National Conclave of Elks at Portland. Oregon, but it conies too late for appearance here, as the function practically begins to morrow (Sunday.) For the entertainment of visitors the Portland Lodge contributed 125,000, to which the people of the city added SIOO,OOO. So that a big time is assured. Moral —A little reflection will evolve the thought nearly every cent of those contributions will remain in Portland! Hence, if Frostburg lavs out SIO,OOO, $15,000, or $25,000 for entertainment of ■ visitors—the true thing to do, won’t : nearly all of the money stay here? KOW THE ELEPHANT TALKS Elephants are said to make use ot a great variety of sounds In communi cating with each other, and In ex pressing their wants and feelings. Some are uttered by the trunk, some by the throat. The conjunctures In which either means of expression Is employed cannot be strictly classified, as fear, pleasure, want and other emotions are sometimes Indicated by the trunk, sometimes by the throatj An elephant rushing upon an assail ant trumpets shrilly with fury. Fear Is similarly expressed In & shrill, brassy trumpet, or by a roaor from the lungs. Pleasure by a con tinued low squeaking through the trunk or an almost Inaudible purring sound from the throat. Want —as. a calf calling Its mother —Is chiefly ex pressed by the throat. A peculiar sound Is made use of by elephants to express dislike or apprehension, and at the same time to intimidate, as when the cause of some alarm has not been clearly ascertained and the ani mals wish to deter an Intruder. It Is produced by rapping the end of the trunk smartly on the ground, a cur rent of air hitherto retained being sharply emitted through the trunk, as from a valve, at the moment of Im pact. The sound made resembles that of a large sheet of tin rapidly doubled. It has been erroneously ascribed by some writers to the animals beating their sides with their trunks. HEAD DRESS OF TEHUANAS The head dress of the Tehuana In dian women whose home is upon the Isthmus of Tehuantepec In Mexico Is of remarkable design and not lacking In attractiveness. It Is called a hul pll and Is an elaborate lace affair re sembling In some respects an Eliza bethan ruff. It Is worn on special oc casions and In different shapes. Some times It Is not flared out from the head, but Is worn hanging down the back. The Tehuana women perform the business functions of the tribe, many of them being small merchants In town upon the Isthmus. The men live n Idleness. In this respect they are -Ike Burmese women and there Is a striking resemblance between the Burmese and the Tehuanas. The dally costumes of the Tehuana women very much resemble that of the Burmese women. They are truly oriental In their fondness for brilliant colors. HOUSE OF DIAMONDS About 20 years ago the diamond merchants of Amsterdam held their market as best they could. The mer chants would meet In a cafe, or some times In the street, where, drawing their gems from their pockets, they would compare them, chaffer, and con clude their contracts. Those days may be termed the patriarchal age. In time the merchants saw that their precious goods were worthy of a more dignified procedure. They rented premises, which they named "Beurs voor den Diamanten.” Business pros pering, Amsterdam absorbed about two-thirds of the world’s commerce in the precious stones, and the syndicate determined to build their own hall or exchange, and this the minister of the interior has recently opened on the Weesperplein. SLICE OF LARGEST TREE What is believed to be the largest tree in the world grew in Southern California and stood over 300 feet high, measuring 90 feet at the base. The section here illustrated weighs 50 tons and is 56 feet in circumfer ence. The concentric rings Indicate that the tree began growing in the year 550. FIRST STOCKING FRAME The first stocking frames are said .to have been made by William Bee, curate of Culverton, In 1586, and were at first worked by him with the as sistance of his sweetheart or wife. Like most other inventors, he failed to receive a suitable reward for his labor and is said to have died at Paris in 1610, starving and broken hearted. The stocking weavers' company, es tablished in 1663, for the next 90 years had almost a monopoly of the business, but Great Britain today makes nearly one half of the stock ings made in the world. Germany is a close second, being famous for the cheapness and excellence of her hose BRIGHT MONEY IN STREAKS A man who gives to his wife all the bright dimes and quarters and halves he gets says that bright money seems to run In streaks. Sometimes he gets a lot of bright coins for days and weeks in succession and then he may go a month and get not one. HENRY F. COOK, Manager. WHOLE NUMBER 2,126 c = — =- e 1882-1912 THIRTY YEARS AGO —+- The items below were current during the week ending July 15, 1882 =— - O “Annie Laurie,” writing from Eck hart, reported “a large number of summer visitors.”. James Briscoe, freight conductor on C. and P. R., fell off a Lonaconing bridge and was painfully hurt. J. S. Metzger reported quite ill. H. S. Howson, Frank McNamee, A. Hoofnagle and Thomas Clifford named as leading- industrial factors in the success of the Mt. Savage Fire-Brick Works. A new residence was erected near that of Joseph B. Thomas, at Eckhart, for occupancy by Dr. B. M. Cromwell. The Eckhart Base-Ball Team de feated Borden Shaft by a score of 18 to 13. Mr. Thomrs W. Neff, aged 48 years, died at his residence, near Eckhart, Thursday, July 13, 1882, leaving wife and several cl ildren. He was a son of the late John Neff, long time prom inent citizen of Frostburg. In Eckhart Wednesday, July 12, 1882, Mrs. Mary Stewart, relict of the late John Stewart,’died, aged 80 years. “Frostburg crowded with summer sojourners.” Several States repre sented. A lodge of Good Templars was in stituted at Cresaptown by a delega tion from Lonaconing. Robert Saurbaugh, of this place, killed a rattle-snake on the fire-clay tramroad, 3>£ feet long, 10 rattles. John Davis was elected Worship ful Master of Mountain Lodge, No. 99, A., F. and A. M.; G. W. Zeller Senior Warden; J. N. Benson Junior Warden; Josiah Ford Secretary, and B. J. Thomas treasurer. Charles Gerlach, splitting an oak log, found a piece of wood, coal-black, in the centre. It was believed to be a wedge that had been driven into the tree years before by a surveyor. Around it, however, the tree had grown until it became entirely em bedded. John J. Price, N. G.; John B. Rees, V.-G.; Thomas Bath, R. S.; Reuben Reed, F. S.; Gershon Anthony, T.; J. M. Zimmerly, W.; T. A. Fvans, C.; John Watson, I. G., and Samuel Logs don, O. G., of Savage Mountain Lodge, No. 128, I. O. O. F., were installed officers. Philip Wenk, N. G.; George Krause, V.-G.; Fred. Mitchell, R. S.; John Pfeiffer, T., and Andrew Lapp, C., were installed officers of Heine Lodge, No. 127, I. O. O. F. A rose-bush covering a space of 13 by 10 feet was a splendid ornament of N. S. Frost’s yard. It was called “The Baltimore Belle,” and bore at least 1,000 full-grown snow-white roses. It had been planted about 10 years before. In Cumberland Tuesday, July 4, 1882, Miss Bertie Neff, of Eckhart, was married to Mr. Walter Greenfield, of the former place, by Rev. A. A. Harryman. N. H. Carson left to make his future home in Austin, Texas. One of the jokes of the day was a reported sermon by Rev. Henry Ward Beecher on “The Law of Love in Business.” Two Printers. Monday forenoon D. R. Powell, job printer, of Detroit, Michigan, dropped in on the editorial side, and while talking, Bert. Musick, of East Pitts burg, came into the mechanical side. Each was a stranger to the other, so that after introducing themselves they finally and reciprocally got acquainted through self-made friends. Mr. Powell came to town last week to attend the funeral of his father, David R. Powell, who died Wednesday, 26th ult. Like the others of the congregation of printers, however, Mr. Powell was much interested in Mr. Musick’s funny report of his experiences in and around the National Democratic Con vention in Baltimore. Mr. Musick is the editor of the West inghouse News, East Pittsburg, Pa., a democratic paper, and he is, there fore, professionally and scientifically qualified to talk of both democratic tragedy and progressive coined}'. In consequence, he kept his hearers, both sympathetic and unsympathetic, either enchained by suspense or un chained by humor. Mr. Musick was a guest of Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Kinney, of Mt, Pleasant, street. His and Mr, Powell’s meeting, urn der Jouknai. auspices, was pleasing alike to each and all of a most con genial party. JSo Exceptions. “Hen Fruit” pays better than some other kinds of fruit, but all fruit pays. —Farm and Orchard, Keyser, W. Va. A Model Factory. The Portsmouth (Va.) Star of June 26th contains a lengthy sketch of “The Parker Hosiery Mill,” in that city, characterizing it as in every way a model plant. It is sanitary and healthful in every respect—a condi tion constantly promoted by the mana ger—H. A. V. Parker. The enterprise was instituted about 11 years ago and the business has steadily increased until it now re quires 150 operatives, and would em ploy more if they could be obtained. In the knitting and looping depart ments an advance of 10 per cent, in wages was recently made by Mr. Parker, owing to the steady effort of the workers to keep up with mill orders. In view of all these facts, especial ly of the management’s consideration for the health and material welfare of the employees, Portsmouth is mani j festly proud of the Parker plant. Mr. Parker is known by many in Frostburg. His wife is a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John L. Porter, j and in her girlhood was a popular j member of a large circle.
