One of the most spectacular figures of the Civic Parade during Home- Coming Week was that of a prominent member of Allegany Tribe, No. 67, Independent Order of Red Men, of this place. He was at the head of that organization, and in costume one of the most impressive reminders of the Indian personnel which flourished herea bout more than a century ago. As a made-up Indian of the most gorgeous type he was a complete success. His name is George Thomas, and it is no disparagement of his worth to affirm that there is much in his -phjsioue and carriage to enable_costumers to Hi ' : \ if have him appear at his best in personating the aboriginal,’American Indian" The picture herewith presented shows Mr. Thomas as he appeared on Civic Parade Day after he had stepped aside for the purpose. When complimented upon the fidelity with which he personated the Indian character in the parade, Mr. Thomas said, in a matter-of-fact way : “Well, after all, there is really only one difference between the Indian and myself.” “What is that ?” asked the Journae. “Why—he smokes the pipe of peace, and I smoke a piece of pipe!” Mr. Thomas is one of the town’s good characters—industrious, thrifty and honorable —qualities which everywhere distinguish the best citizenship.

Distressing Accident. George H. Miller, Broadway grocer, driving his one-horse team to the rail road station Monday morning, reached the Depot-road intersection with East Union street, when, suddenly, an au tomobile swished close up. The horse shied violently, broke the shaft and twisted the wagon so sud denly that Mr. Miller was thrown from the seat headlong to the ground, breaking one leg in two places. Mr. Miller suffered the great mis fortune a number of years ago to lose the use of both legs while a mine worker, and this misfortune makes his condition most pathetic. With the constant assistance of his wife, he conducts a small grocery on Broadway, and his figure, seen only on the little delivery wagon, has been a familiar one a long time.

Company, of Roanoke, have been awarded the plumbing work on the new twelve story Reuger hotel, now being built in Richmond. “An idea of the magnitude of this contract may be gathered from the fact that there will be ninety-six bath rooms, and over four hundred fixtures. “The contract price is $24,000. “This, with the work now on hand, will give this firm over $30,000 of plumbing in Richmond alone.” The Englebys are well remembered here and in Lonaconing, They went to Roanoke about “thirty years ago,” and they constitute a big fraction of that town’s best social and ; business element. 1893 ESTSBLISHSD 1912 Dr. I.LRITTER, DENTIST, 19 Broadway, fJ7] Frostburg, Md.
