It will stand forever to Woodrow
Wilson’s credit that in all of' his hun
dreds of addresses during the late
campaign he uttered not a disparag
ing word of his competitors.
There were provocations, but he
heeded them not, exemplifying to the
final and complete degree the Master’s
policy, taught and practised, of “re
turning good for evil.”
It seems unlikely, therefore, that a
man whose character is thus indexed,
will be an unsafe custodian of the
country’s honor and the people’s
Moreover, he is a scholar in all the
branches of political, commercial and
civic learning, that go to make a Chief
Magistrate truly great,
Hence, without the slightest deroga
tion of his competitors—all or singly,
the Journal independently feels that
for four years the country will be not
only “safe,” but “progressive” in the
highest and best sense.
Buy At Home.
Buy at home and try at home
To give the town a show ;
Hive at home and give at home
And help the town to grow.
Make your cot the nicest spot
That’s under Heaven’s dome
Just buy a bit to brighten it —•
Buy, and buy at home.
If you’d like a town to strike
All comfort and content,
It will be the town, you see,
In which your money’s spent.
If you’d find the finest kind
Of town, you needn’t roam ;
Just boost a bit—and live in it

A woman claims that by prayer and
fasting she has gained the gift of
tongues and now can converse In any
language. The cynics will probably
retort that, taking the self-asserted
miracle for granted, one tongue has
proved to be far too voluble a ve
hicle for the majority of her sex, and
that the access of all languages is not
so much a personal merit as a gen
eral misfortune. —Baltimore Amer
No Poetry There.
W. D. Howells, at a luncheon at
Kittery Point, said to a certain popu

poetry in him as there is in McMas

walking with a beautiful girl in a wild
New England wood. ‘What is your fa
vorite flower, Mr. McMasters?’ the
girl asked softly. McMasters thought
a moment, then cleared his throat and
answered: ‘Well, I believe I like the
whole-wheat best.’ ”

In the Realm of Sisterhood.
The Mountaineer Club met in their 1
room in Clarke Hall Wednesday
evening, had a good time—singing,
playing, and initiating new members.
For years the Browns had planned
ft European trip, but every year some
thing happened to prevent their get
ting away. First the children were ill,
and then Mrs. Brown Invited guests
for a short time, who stayed Beveral
months, preventing the Browns, by
the dwindling of the bank account,
from going abroad that year. Thus
things went on.
Finally Brown declared as an abso
lute certainty that Europe would .
them the following year. All their
friends were notified and everything
was done to make it impossible for
their trip to be prevented.
When all was ready, however,
Brown was ordered by his firm to se
cure a particularly desirable contract
at any cost. It meant a lot to the
firm and to Brown, but it also meant
months of untiring effort—effort that
could not be put forth in Europe.
Brown, however, had made his Vow
and he refused to let his business in
terfere with his family’s plans. The
family could go to Europe even if he
couldn’t. They had relatives abroad,
and, besides, he could send thenj with
a party. So he packed them on the
train and looked as cheerful aS pos
sible when it pulled out.
When he returned home, however,
he began to realize how lonesome it
was there. It got on his nerves finally
and he resolved to board during his
bachelorhood. So he moved to a ho
Then the thought came to him to
rent his house for the months that it
would be vacant unless he rented it.
There was no earthly use in letting
it stand and gather dust, which was
the same as throwing away a goodly
sum of money each month. Some one
would be only too glad of the oppor
tunlty to live in a well furnished
house in a fashionable suburb, with all
the benefits of the Browns’ home com
forts. Some one, no doubt, was search
ing eagerly for such an opportunity.
So Brown hastened to advertise the
treat in store for some one.
The number of replies he received
was. highly gratifying to him. After
picking out the letter written on the
best appearing stationery he clinched
the bargain over the telephone. Of
course, the tenants refused to pay
nearly what he thought his house was
worth, but on reflection he concluded
that they were really caretakers for
him who would look after his property
generally. He even began to feel un
der obligations to them for their will
ingness to take his house and he
urged them to make themselves per
fectly at home, assuring them that
everything in the house was theirs
to use as they desired.
When he hung up the receiver he
heaved a sigh of relief and content.
He needn’t even think of the house
again until his family were about to
return. It was really a great idea of
his to have some one take care of the
property for him; now he could devote
his entire time to the task of getting
that important contract.
It was about a week later that over
the telephone he listened to a very in
dignant feminine voice commanding
his immediate presence at his home.
Fearing no less calamity than a fire,
Brown hastened to catch the first
train to the familiar suburb.
"What’s the matter?” he asked of
the woman who opened the door after
be had established his identity.
“Why,” she replied, without inviting
him in, “I wanted to ask you where
I can find the potato knife and the
carving set. And when you rented us
this place you gave us to understand
that it was completely furnished!
Well, ever since we moved in we’ve
been unable to find things we ought to
have! There are no oyster forks nor

we were here, so we had to have A

bills to you! You’ve no business acF

things. Your brooms are dreadful,
and some of your kitchen utensils
were absolutely worn out. We’ll Just

Brown had ceased to listen. He was
contemplating the gown worn by his
tenant —a dainty house dress of Mrs.
Brown’s. His wife had left much of
her wardrobe at home, he knew. In
the doorway, to receive the first foot
prints of the incomers, was the
Browns’ most valuable rug, treasured
as very gold! He wondered what
might lie beyond his vision!
He stuttered helplessly, trying to
express his dissatisfaction, but the
glare of righteous indignation in his
tenant’s eyes rendered him inarticu
“All the rent for the first month is
already paid out,” said the woman.
“When the plumber’s bill comes in
shall we send it to you, or shall we
pay It out of next month’s rent?”
“There —there won’t be another
month!” exploded Brown, turning on
his heel to prevent himself from ma
king further unseemly remarks. But
as he stamped along the street he re
called that the objectionable occupants
of his home had a lease to fortify them
against his wrath. —Chicago Daily

A Work of Art.
That engraved picture by Walter E.
Jeffries must be seen to be duly appre

A Surprise.
Dr. and Mrs. E. A. Smith recently
went to “keeping house” on Frost
avenue, and Tuesday evening, while
nearly everybody else was listening for
election returns a large number of
their friends, each carrying a cooking
utensil, called on them and indulged
“a kitchen shower.” They were much
surprised, and yet—awfully pleased!
The Election.
Tuesday, as forecast last week, was an ideal day for the people to go to the
polls, yet of 1824 town voters only 1247 voted the presidential ticket and
only 1161 the congressional ticket.
Two of the features of the contest were —
In District No. 12 the Socialist ticket polled more votes than any other for
President and Vice-President, and in towm more votes than the republican
ticket—national and congressional.
Following is a tabular report of the vote—town unofficial, county official :

In the country at large Wilson and Marshall, Democratic Nominees for
President and Vice-President, carried 39 of the 48 States, and 439 of the 531
electoral votes, or 173 more than the necessary majority.

Election Incidents.
Next morning William R. Gunter
■ got tired of looking at the bulletins
I and entered a course of study of the
’ night’s edition of the Hotel-Gladstone
register, “which,” he said, “showed
. the election of several choice rooms
-by guests.”
1 John B. Williams can’t understand
‘ why democrats didn’t cheer like re
publicans do when they win. But he
t was too far away to hear at least one
r outburst just in front of the gate of
- the West-Mechanic street court-house.
E. J. Decker laughed so much at
■ his recollections of “Jeff and Mutt”
that he had to stay up all of Tuesday
i night. “Besides,” he said, “demo
-1 cratic triumphs come along so seldom
; that I wanted to enjoy the whole thing
i while the news was coming.” Mean
> while, perforce of habit, he allowed
three belated electric-car passengers
1 to register as guests of the St. Cloud
, Hotel.
t John Geis, coming home from work
’ Wednesday afternoon, said “every
thing looks bright for democratic suc
-1 cess, but have the returns from Sang
Run come in yet?” John laughed
t while saying this, because there is a
tradition of the era before Garrett be
, came a county, when a democrat was
r elected to an Allegany office and actu
ally commissioned ! but, lo ! the re
turns from Sang Run, hitherto unno
ticed by the electoral board, came in
and elected “the other feller” by a
majority of 1! For years Horace
Resley, always in humor, would de
clare his unalterable opposition to in
ducting any man into office in this
country before the vote at Sang Run
’ had 1 een returned !
There was some fun on Grant street
Wednesday evening when a bet be
tween Abraham Mateese and P. T.
McGann was settled. Mateese had
wagered McGann that Wilson would
not be elected; otherwise, he would
3 roll (not row) an 8-gallon keg of water
from the base to the summit of Grant
street —a gallon for each hundred feet.
Of course, Mateese lost, but he did
; the job, sustained by the cheers of a
host of sympathizers. Hater the Fed
eral Hill Amandolina Association ser-
enaded bettor and bettee, and much
fun ensued.
John M. Streett, of Cumberland, was
in town Thursdaj T . Asked—“how are
you getting along under the commis
sion form of government ?” he said
“not so well—since Tuesday. All the
democrats in Cumberland now want a
• change from commission to democrat
" ic government. As it is, with Wilson
' and Marshall in the national chairs,
' we are going to feel that government
> in Washington is ‘out of tune’ with
1 government in Cumberland.”
' Frank J. McMahon, of Cumberland,
was in the metropolis Monday after
’ noon about 15 hours before the polls
opened, but at that moment was not
' sure which of the three leading nomi
nees would be elected. “Wilson,” he
said, “had declared that it is all over
but the counting;” Teddy “that it is
■ all over except the shouting,” while
> Taft had contended “that the extra
r silent vote is too large to make any
f result dead sure.”
, Arloii Band Concert.
: A large and appreciative audience

The Keyser Preps came up last
Saturday and rastled with the High
Beall class and got rushed out by a
score of 13 to 12!
It was found out later by the two
percentage men that the ratio of
weight talent favored Beall'High as
per 104 to 96.
Hence the result.
Nick Metzger said “the play was
conducted in a manner so parliamen
tary that not a leader was strained,
not a nerve racked, nor a cuss insti
gated. Keyser went home almost as
well pleased as if the score had been
26 to 24. One Keyser boy, in fact, de
clared he was coming back to Frost
burg again—next time to see one of
our girls, but didn't say which.”
Mister Clifton E. Gurd, of Keyser,
W. Va., accuses the Frostburg cor
respondent of the Cumberland News
and the Beall H. School foot-ball class
of unsportsmanlike behavior.
The correspondent omitted mention
of a score that the Bealls embezzled
from a feller named Nordeck.
And then he didn’t tell how some
Frostburg outsiders pushed the ball
back after the down-touch.
And then there was a fight between
the Frostburg rooters and the Keyser
Preps, “aided, abetted, and partici
pated in by an official of the Frost
burg school!”
One wouldn’t think that foot-ball is
a dishonest as well as dangerous
game, but Mister Gurd says Frost
burg, not wanting to contest with
Nordeck and Craig, “proceeded to de
liberately knock them out!”
Why, Frostburg, ain't you ashamed?
But, “both went down a number of
times” under the influence of “hard
knocks,” until “finally, Nordeck was
knocked completely unconscious by a
vicious kick in the face!”
Lastlj', Mister Gurd says—
“ln no other game this year have
we had to contend with dirty playing
and it is only necessary to refer to
Terra Alta and to Lonaconing to learn
whether we play clean foot-ball or

It is classed as a game, but looks
more like a clinic.
It is called football because the ball
is about a foot long.
It takes 22 men to play football and
somewhere near twice that number to

In our large colleges the football
