,T. SUNS ON ODER, Editor. FROSTBURG, MD. - - SEPT. 21,1912 A TOCSIN CALL. A letter addressed to the Journal, “Frostburg', Pa.,” dated “September 13,” reached here September 17. It came not too late, however, to do good, and the Journal copies it for the especial benefit of a host of peo ple and the higher development of hundreds of thousands of acres of fruitful land. To the Mining Jotjrnai,. • Why don't you and the Cumberland and Uniontown newspapers take up the best proposition extant—an EleClric Railway from Uniontown to Frostburg , and boost it with all the force and in fluence you can command? This one enterprise would boom a big territory , now sluggish, in both Penn sylvania and Maryland ! CHARLES F. FRAZEE, Pittsbuig, Pa. \Vjth the National Pike as the foun dation for the enterprise, the cost for survey and grading would be mini mum. And going through much wooded country the tie-cost would' be lower than usual. Running costs, too, would be les sened by the proximity of fuels; in fact, no expense would exceed the normal standard. It would pay town-dwellers and farmers all along the 52 miles to or ganize a company, take its stock, build and operate it in their own in terest—diredlly and indireClly, for there is no doubt that it will repay them fully in the one way, and pile up profits in enhanced values for them in the other. Mr. Frazee’s clarion-call should evoke a ringing response, and Frost burg is a town already big and rich enough to make it. Start the enterprise here and ask Uniontown to meet us half-way. “Day of Atonement.” From sunset last (Friday) until sun set this (Saturday) evening is “Yom Kippur,” the Jewish Day of Atone ment. No food for Hebrews within the 24 hours indicated, and no business. Business Movements. Olin D. Robison purchased and took charge of the livery business of the firm of Hunter Brothers, corner Me chanic and South Water streets, on Monda3 T , 16th inst., and will conduct it in connection with his lumber oper ations. William C. Hunter, senior of the brothers, has taken employment under the Standard Oil Company at the “Blue-Jay” lumber-camp pumping station, near Salisbury, Pa. Miss Effie Shaffer has returned from a business trip to Philadelphia aud- New York, where she purchased fall millinery, including a large assort ment of beautiful pattern hats. Charles Ehm has purchased the tailoring business of William Moody, 15 Broadway, and will continue to turn out “suits to measure” at the same number. Becoming an Artist. Gen. Kear Hosken is taking lessons in plate engraving in a school in Ean caster, Pa. He left about two weeks ago, and will not return for about three months—unless, meanwhile, his girl, also going to school, should come home on an extra vacation. Gen. Kear has the grit and hold-fast quality essential to success in artistic ac quirements and work. Coming Events. Next Monday morning, 23d inst., at 5 o’clock, the sun will enter Eibra, the Seventh Sign of the Zodiac, and with that culmination begins the calendar autumn. Married. In St. Paul’s Eutheran Church, Cumberland, Wednesdajq September 18, 1912, by Rev. M. E. Enders, Miss Clara Margaret Brown, of LaVale, to Mr. James Goldsworthy, of Keyser, yt. Va. The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William H. Brown, of EaVale; the groom a son of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Goldsworthy, East Union street. They will live in Keyser, where the groom is prominent in the younger set of business men. The Sick. Mrs. Philip McMahon, of Ocean, was stricken with paralysis a few days ago, and family and relatives are apprehensive of the worst. She is a sister of Thomas G. Dillon, of this place. Mrs. Robert Biddington, residing on Wood street, is recovering from in juries incurred about two weeks ago in a fall downstairs. Mrs. Henry K. Neff, Beall street, is confined to her home by illness. Mrs. Robert Scott, South Water street, is critically ill. Mrs. Marion Brown, stricken with paralysis about two weeks ago, is re covering at her home—236 East Union street. Scholastic. Francis Engle, accompanied by his mother —Mrs. Eaura Engle, Broadway, left Wednesday for Baltimore where Francis will be enrolled for another year in Mt. Washington Seminary. He was a pupil in same institution last year, and was much benefitted—phys ically and intellectually. Miss Rhoda Neal resigned her posi tion in Hill street public school to take a course in Domestic Science in Virginia College, near Roanoke, Va. Miss Edna Close, late of the Mt. Savage public school, succeeds Miss Neal. Miss Althea Hartig, of this place, in turn, succeeds Miss Close in Mt. Savage. Prof. John E. Edwards, county su perintendent, was in town Thursday on official business. Orphans’ Court. At Friday’s session last week — Thomas Dixon, executor of Mary Dixon, settled his first account of real estate and made distribution under the will. The last will and testament of Mel choir Yungerman was filed, proven and admitted to probate and record. The Braddock-Road Mile-Stone. The Frostburg bureau of the Cum berland Times has accepted without question the allegation of a Massa chusetts man that the Braddock-Road Milestone was not set up by anybody in Braddock’s army, going or coming. In fact, the Eacock and the Times have practically relegated the stone to the rock-pile and then affect to want that portion of the rock-pile pre served as a monument—not to the Braddock era, but to “Capt. Smyth’s Inn and Bridge Big Crossing.” Anent the talk of no “evidences,” the Jotjrnai, will indulge a few: There is “no evidence” that the stone was not engraved—“ Our Coun try’s Rights We Will Defend,” and set up at the end of Braddock’s first day’s march from Fort Cumberland. It was as well known then as now that “11 Miles” was the distance, for Washington had traversed the road twice, once as a surveyor. There is “no evidence” that the • stone, set up with that note of defiance on the western side, had no other in scription upon it until “Capt. Smyth’s” advertising man came along and made use of rest of the eastern side for a boost of the hotel! The evidence is— the lettering is not alike! The same engraver did not do both jobs. The one was done by an Englishman; the other by a late and evidently less cultured colonist. There was never a time when the inscription—“ Our Country’s Rights We Will Defend,” was more vital as a challenge to the West and North- West than in 1755. It was a British challenge, especial ly to the French! As an American challenge twenty years later, the colonists would have been compelled to transplant it on the Atlantic coast, with the inscription turned eastward —if “it was only the Revolution that could bring forth such statements.” Eacock fixes “the Revolution,” or a few years afterward, as the time when the stone was set up, but this section played practically no part in “the Revolution.” While he was iconoclasting, there fore, he should have fixed the date at 1812—1815, when there were not only American soldiers hereabout, but “American captains!” The Journat, can go further, but it is inclined to reserve several points had engraved, the first inscription on one side and the single one on the other, it is worthy of your protection! Otherwise, it has no claim whatever on your notice—not even as a mile stone! Great Project. Work will begin on the proposed great electric-power plant, Friends ville, Garrett county, next spring. It will furnish electric power for all purposes to all towns and cities within 100 miles of Friendsville. The electric railway from Frostburg to Uniontown, Pa., might get its power from this plant. Generated by water-gravity, not a pound of fuel would be needed ! Death of a Good Citizen. Henry_N. Schneider, shoe merchant, died at his home on Maple street at 2)4 o’clock Thursday morning, aged 67 years. He was born in Germany and came to Frostburg in 1857. After several years of mine-work he learned shoe making, later combined with the mer cantile phase of the business. He was a quiet, good, exemplary citizen, always obliging and courteous to all. A long-time member of Salem Reformed Church, his body will be buried from the family home to-mor row (Sunday) afternoon under auspices of that Church and Order of the Shield of Honor. Mr. Schneider’s death is probably the most pathetic outcome of the ter rible accident about a month ago when his daughter —Miss Jennie, one of four young ladies, was killed on the Western Maryland extension. He was not then well, and the shock pre cipitated a condition which induced the family to send him to Baltimore. Rev. G. E. Metger, his pastor, accom panied him, and a brief examination developed cancer of the liver as his trouble. They returned home next day, Mr. Schneider suffering intensely all the way. Ten hours later he died. Wife, two daughters and five sons are bereaved—Mrs. Anna Miller, Miss Minnie, Alvin and Melvin, of this place; John, of West Va.; Conrad F., of Palmyra, Pa., and Oscar, of Or lando, Florida. Marriage Licences. Walter Edward Wills and Eottie M. Sheler, both of Mt. Savage. Sam Eamanna, of Cumberland, and Mary Amelia Ruffo of Frostburg. Couldn’t Both Be Christians. In a Kansas town where two broth ers are engaged in the retail coal bus iness a revival was recently held and the elder of the brothers was con verted. For weeks the brother who had “got religion” tried to persuade the other to “join the church.” One day he asked— “ Why can’t you ‘join the church’ like I did 7” “It’s a fine thing for you to belong to the church,” replied the younger brother. “But if I ‘join the church,’ who’ll weigh the coal ?”—Kansas City (Mo.) Times. Entertainment. Monday evening next, 23d inst., there will be held at the Palace The atre a special entertainment and picture-show under the auspices of the ladies of St. John’s Church. Three reels of excellent pictures will be given, and there will be also special music, both vocal and instru mental. A pleasant evening is promised to all who attend, and the ladies cordial ly invite the patronage of the public. BASE-BALL. Piedmont vs. Midland Midland’s acceptance of Piedmont’s challenge has resulted in a game this week—at Midland, Piedmont losing by 2 to 1. Rain broke up the game at end of sth inning. An immense crowd witnessed the game and were well-rewarded by fine playing. Next game will be played in Pied mont, probably this (Saturday) after noon. A silver cup and a purse of SIOO are stored away for the winning team. James Jackson, of this place, hold ing a place on the Midland team, in clines Frostburgers to “side” with that aggregation. Her First Impression It was a-lady who, when she wit nessed her first game of ball, declared that she enjoyed the arguments the visiting players had with the home umpire, but she thought both bunches wasted a lot of time running around and over the lot. Personae Eeo Rodgers, once a short-stop player on the Frostburg Base-Ball team, was in town this week en route Prudential, R. 1., to Detroit, Mich. Staggered Him. The topic of “my first love” was up and James E. Ratigan, rising to what he called “a parliamentary inquiry,” asked Roy E- McCardell — “If our mothers and fathers had all married their first loves, where would all of us be ?” Roy reached over and taking a whis pered word from Judge Fred. Bepler, arose and said— “ Mr. Speaker, I decline to answer!” Interesting Time. The annual meeting of the Georges Creek Medical Association was held in the Hotel Gladstone parlors Thurs day, 19th inst., nearly all members present. Altogether, including professional, social and fraternal features, it was a very interesting “clinic.” Officers were elected as follows: President—Dr. W. O. McEane, of this place, and— Secretary—Dr. Timothy L. Conroy, (also of this place. The next monthly meeting will be Iheld Thursday, October 17th, in iMidland. b| Tale of Two Cities. I The Euray (Va.)

Elsewhere the Joijrnae makes men tion of a series of joint socials of the Epworth Eeague chapters of Barton, Eonaconing, Cumberland and Frost burg, and additional information comes as follows: “The first joint social was held in the lecture-room of First M. E. Church Tuesday evening. “A program of recitations, vocal and instrumental music numbers was greatly enjoyed by all. “After the rendition of the program ice-cream, cake and coffee were served by members of the Chapter, and the series is an innovation inaugurated by Prof. R. F. Chaney, district president of the Frederick district of the Balti more Conference, the purpose of which is to create a closer union of the Eeagues in this vicinity. “A large number of members of the various Chapters were present, es pecially from Barton and Eonaconing, from which places a special car was run over the C. & W. E. Railway. “All expressed themselves as highly pleased with the reception accorded them. Better Paint. Better paint this year if your prop erty needs it. Mistaken men have been waiting for paint to come-down. The cost of their job has gone-up not down; it always goes-up by waiting; never comes-down. Better paint than Devoe? There isn’t any. Suppose one had waited 20 or 30 years ago for better paint than Devoe; how long would he have waited? How long would he still have to wait? The price a gallon makes some dif ference; yes, but not much; it’s the paint that counts; the quality counts. It’s the go-far that counts. Protec tion of property counts more yet. Better paint. J. W. Shea, DEVOE Agent. sells it. Beautiful Reproductious. Animated scenes of ineffable beauty that will linger in the inner sight long after they have vanished from the screen, will be presented by Ejnnan H. Howe at the Frostburg Opera House on Monday, September 23d. They take the audience in and around Paris; to historic Versailles, and through the delightfully pictur esque rivers of France. The repro duction of these scenes in the actual and exquisite colors of nature en hances their beauty to a degree that defies description. Whaling; the burial of the Maine; the bee industry; a thrilling race be tween a hydroplane and 800-horse power motor boat in the harbor of Monaco, and an exciting adventure with a ferocious lion are only a few of the other features on a program that is entirely new, excepting only that amazing botanical study entitled “The Birth of Flowers,” which Mr. Howe will present again in response to popular demand. No other repro duction that he has ever presented has elicited such numerous requests for another presentation, and it is in deference to this wide demand that he offers his patrons another opportu nity to peer into one of nature’s greatest secrets.
