A Typical Redman.
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
' : \
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
“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.

and everyshing sheems full. What’s

Farm and Household Show.
The Second Annual Exhibit of the
Allegany and Garrett-County Agri
cultural Society is announced for
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 17th,
18th and 19th insts., in K. of P. Arm
Grain, fruit and vegetables of the
two counties will be shown by farmers
and gardeners, and the accomplish
ments of ladies in-the development of
bread, pastry, preserves, needle-work,
horticulture, etc., will hold a promi
nent place in the display.
Addresses will be delivered each
day—Thursday by Prof. W. H. Aider
man, State Horticulturist, of West
Virginia; Friday by Prof. T. B. Sy

land, and Prof. H. J. Patterson, Di
rector of U. S. Experiment Station,
Washington, D. C., and Saturday by
Hon. David J. Eewis, Congressman—
last named on “The Parcels Post.”
Altogether, the prospectus and pro
gram of this exhibition are very allur
ing, and everybody within reach
should pay it at least one all-round
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.

made by a medicine endorsed from

wonder if the statements are true?
But when they read of cases right

Big Contracts on Hand.
The Roanoke (Va.) Times of last
Sunday reports the following:
“The Engleby & Bro. Company, of
Roanoke, have been awarded the
plumbing work on the new twelve
story Reuger hotel, now being built in
“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

They went to Roanoke about “thirty
years ago,” and they constitute a big
