ELECTRIC RAILWAYISM.
„ The Piedmont (W. Va.) Herald wants
some “public-spirited financiers” to
promote “the project of an electric
railway line from Keyser to Bloom
ington byway of McCoole, Western
port, Piedmont, Luke and Beryl.”
And then it clinches the advantages
with this statement:
“Here is a seven-mile line with seven
towns already located and thriving, to
feed, to say nothing of the immense
traffic that would come down George’s
Creek through Westerhport.”
It is hard to tell, however, how that
will strike the lawyers who are presi
dent and counsel of railways.
If towns are already built, they must
surrender very nearly all their street
rights to the company in order to get
the road; “because you know, we are
a great advantage to the town. We
help it to grow bigger, and bigger,
and bigger!”
If a section of a town wants a Belt
Bine, however, in order to promote
building development and real-estate
progressiveness, they laugh at “the
idea of such a thing!”
Hence, it is very hard to settle on a
line of advice to the Herald concern
ing just the policy to adopt in carry
ing on a campaign for the Keyser-
Bloomington electric railway enter
prise.
With the electric-railway corpora
tion, as with the king, everything the
people want is wrong.
Be Glad Anyway.
Over in Oakland the Democrat en
joins its readers—
“lf it rains, be glad it didn’t snow,
because you don’t have the pavements
to clean,” or—-
“If it sno\ys, be glad it isn’t rain,
because you don’t need an umbrella
in a snowstorm.”
Coming Events.
The first dance of “The Ruby Seal
Club” is scheduled for Friday even
ing, 28th inst., in Terpsichorean Hall,

The Women’s Home Missionary So
ciety, First M. E. Church, held its
regular monthly meeting last Satur
day at residence of Mrs. James E.

The preceding week of “self-denial”
resulted in the saving of about S3O for
appropriation to payment of a debt
incurred by the national body.
“A free-will offering” by the 30
members present resulted in the
acquisition of about S7O for donation
toward furnishing a room in the

Forecast.
Over in Jeannette, Pa., the Dispatch
tells its readers that —
“Easter bonnets will bloom much
earlier this spring.”
If it can be said that an “Easter
** bonnet” in a show-window is “in
bloom,” there are several big, pretty
bouquets in Frostburg.
The Sick.
James Findley Ivoch, son of James
T. Koch, of WBridgeville, Pa., was re

is a little grand-son of Mrs. W. H.
Koch, of this place.
Dr. George Sloan, of North Yakima,
passed through the coun
ty Tuesday to Johns Hopkins Hos
pital, Baltimore, attending his brother
—Aleck, also of North Yakima, who
is ill.
ProHonaced According to Law.
There ws trouble last week between
Saul Prajger and “Hank,” of the Cum
berland News, the latter testifying
that—
“ Saul Prajger don’t like the way I
pronounce the word, ‘Bucia.’
“I give the second syllable a soft
sound, according to Dago lingo.
“But Saul, a stickler for the ethics
of the legal profession, says the pro
nunciation is Bu-zt-cher, with a sneeze
attached.”
The Apostles’ Creed—and Mine.
I believe! in God, Creator of Heaven and of earth ;
By whosb Omnipotence all creatures, great and small, gave birth !
And in tie Holy Trinity—the Blessed Three in One—
The Holy Ghost and Jesus Christ, God’s Own Begotten Son !
Who, by the Spirit was conceived and of a Virgin born,
Was crucified for our sakes, but rose on Easter morn ;
And who to Heaven did ascend, and sitteth near the Throne,
By God's right hand, where He will wait to welcome all His own.
And in, one Apostolic Church—the Church of Christ, which finds
No difference in Creeds, Beliefs and Faiths, but only binds
The hearts of all God’s children in Universal Peace—•
To dWell in Blessed Bonds of Bove, when all contentions cease.
And I believe that Heaven’s Saints together shall commune,
And that, through Faith in Christ, we may from sin become immune,
And receive full absolution through His Redeeming Grace ;
And that we shall be like Him when we see Him face to face.
Sara Roberta' Getty.
ASPIRATION.
THE desire of the moth for the star,
Of the night for the morrow,
The devotion to something afar
From sphere of our sorrow.
—Shelley.
THE MARCH OF GREECE.
WHOSE face, whose on high,
Lifts through the sky
That aureole?
Who over earth and sea
Cries victory?
Europe, thy soul
Comes home to thee!
Is it a dream; a cloud
That thus hath rent the shroud
To speak, sublime and proud,
Thy faith aloud,
Whose eyes make young and fair
All things in earth and air,
The shadow of whose white wing
Makes violets spring?
Is it the angel of day
Whom the blind pray
Still, that their faith
May sleep sound by night?
Blood stained, yet white,
Rerisen, she saith,
Let there be light!
Whose are the conquering eyes
Tnat turn through those dark skies?
Whose is the voice that cries:
“Awake! Arise!"
For if she speak one word
To sheath or draw the sword
Her nations on that day
Answer her—Yea!
It is the angel of God,
Sun crowned, fire shod,
Bidding hate cease.
Her proud voice on high
Bids darkness die.
Her name is Greece
Or—Liberty!
—Alfred Henry Noyes in London Mail.
WHAT OF YOU AND ME?
THINK when soul understands
The great wobd which makes all
things new,
When earth breaks up and heaven ex
pands,
How will the change strike me and you
In the house not made with hands!
—Browning.
BLUM MEANT WELL
He Was Only Living Up to the Rules
of His Club.
Under the second empire bores were
so rampant that a sort of society or
club was formed to fight them under
the name of the “Rachat des Captifs.”
U was a mutual aid society, every
member of which was bound to come
to the rescue of any other in the clutch
es of a buttonholing bore. The signal
of distress was given by unobtrusively
Scratching the side of one’s nose, and a
colleague on seeing this was expected
to intervene and deliver his friend from
captivity.
The society was so useful and so pop
ular-even humanitarian, it may be said
—that it flourished exceedingly for
many years and grew rich in members
and subscriptions. Among its mem
bers was the veteran journalist Ernest
Blum, who, however, was rather clum
sy at his work, yje used to relate the
following story:
“One day in passing the Gymnase I
saw two men talking. I knew one of
them and took off my hat to him,
whereupon he at once scratched his
nose.
“I, of course, thought, he was a mem
ber of the club in distress whom I
ought to deliver, so approached and,
not knowing what to say, cried out:
‘My dear X., I am delighted to meet
you. I have an important piece of
new’s to tell you. Allow me?’ turning
to the other man. ‘Certainly,’ replied
this gentleman. I took my comrade
aside, saying: ‘You know I have noth
ing at all to tell you. I only wanted to
rescue you. That is all.’ ‘Rescue me
from what?’ ‘Why, from the bore.’
‘What bore ?’ ‘The man you were talk
ing to, naturally.’ ‘But he is my fa
ther.’ ”
Poor Blum had chanced upon some
body who was not a member of the so
ciety and who had merely scratched
his nose absently or because he wanted
to, which may happen to any man.—
Paris Annales.
Fitted For the Part.
When a new member of the Irish
house of commons made his first
speech. Sir William Osborne asked
who he was. and being told he replied:
“Well, I think he will do. If the oppo
sition have enlisted him, they are per
fectly In the right, for he seems to
have the finest face for a grievance of
any man I ever beheld.”—National
Monthly.
A Remington Story.
On Thanksgiving day a number of
years ago the late Frederic Remington
was in London, his first visit to Eng
land, where he announced to his friends
he intended to “have a real vacation,
away from mustangs and Indians.” As
a tribute to the noted artist, American
residents in London joined in arrang
ing a splendid Thanksgiving feast.
Remington, of course, to be the guest of
honor. The chef of the Hotel Carlton
was told to spare no expense in obtain
ing fat gobblers, bluepoints. sweet po
tatoes and other trimmings for the j
genuine old time dinner.
Not a hitch occurred to mar the oc
casion excepting that Remington failed
to turn up. While Loildon was raked
fore and aft for the celebrated artist,
the guests politely waited, waited un
til their stomachs quaked and their
mouths watered for the luscious tur
key. Late that night, when, the feast
was long since despoiled, one of the
guests wandered into Buffalo Billis
wild west show at Earl’s court. Rem
ington sat there drawing.,
“Do not disturb him,” ordered Colo
nel Cody. “He’s getting some good local
color from these Creek Indians. He’s
been here since 10 o’clock this morn
ing.”—Philadelphia North American.

Put Petitions In Golf Holes.
The amir of Afghanistan has taken
up golf keenly and has had good links
laid out in the neighborhood of Kabul.
The natives were much puzzled by the
well kept greens; but, recognizing the
game as a royal one, they put the
holes to a practical purpose, They got
into the habit of placing petitions in
the holes at night in the hope that they
would reach the amir when he was
putting next day. But his majesty’s
temper apparently was not improved
by the royal game. He resented this at
tempt to take advantage of his recrea
tions and ordered that all such peti
tions be burned unread.—London Mail.
Water Treatment for Shoes.
A simple although effective way of
“breaking in” shoes is that employed
in the United States army.
After the shoes have been fitted to
their feet the soldiers stand in water
to the shoe tops, until the leather is
thoroughly soaked.
Then the soldiers are put on a march,
and this “hike” is kept up until the
shoes are thoroughly dried on their
feet.
For ever afterward the shoes are
perfectly comfortable, for they con
form in shape to every little peculiar
ity of the wearer’s feet.
This method of breaking in shoes,
while not new in itself, is one result
of the recent investigation of the foot ,
troubles of the army 7 , which the special
appointed board of army officers has
been conducting.

There Can Be No Doubt About
the Kesults in Frostburg.
Results tell the tale.
All doubt is removed.
The testimony of a Frostburg citi
zen can be easily investigated.
What better proof can be had ?
Mrs. B. T. Schofield, 96 W. Main
street, Frostburg, Md., says: “For
many years I suffered from pains
through my back and mv limbs were
so stiff and sore that I could hardly
get around. The kidney secretions
were in bad shape and I rested poorly
at night. When in that miserable
condition, I procured a box of Doan’s
Kidney Pills and they helped me at
once. I have since told several other
people about this effective kidney
medicine.” (Statement given No
vember 15, 1907.)
A EATER STATEMENT.
Mrs. Schofield was interviewed .by
our representative on May 17, 1911,
and she said: “I am pleased to verify
the public statement I gave in 1907,
recommending Doan’s- Kidney Pills.
They certainly did good work in my

strongly antagonistic to re-union with
the republican party.
Differences.
A Kansas Ci-ty (Mo.) lawyer has
found that the proper name of onion
is lilium.
But a long time ago a Frostburg
grocer of the old school denounced a
customer who called it “onion,” and,
almost to his face, he challenged him—
“ You don’t mean ‘onion !’ You
know you mean ingern 1”
to Win a Prize.
Two girls met three other girls and
all kissed.
How many kisses were exchanged?
An answer to this problem, accom
panied by sl, will entitle the sender to

Good Roads.
The time has come when unscientific
patching of county roads ought to
cease.
The farmer needs a good road a
great deal more than the pleasure
driving automobilist.
To the latter a bad road means
simply a little discomfort.
To the farmer it means many hours
of time wasted as he draws his loads
through the sloughs of mud.
It means that he must keep more
horses and that his beasts of burden
will wear out quicker.
Bet every farmer insist that the road
officials of his neighborhood do modern
scientific work!
Pastoral Call Accepted.
Rev. B. F. Bray, pastor of First
English Baptist Church, , this place,
called recently to the same office in a
Baptist Church, Roanoke, Va., has ac
cepted, and his congregation here has
been so advised.
He will not leave, however, until a
successor has been secured.
Mr. Bray has been here several
years, and, although he is still young
in ministerial work, his career has been
rounded up with a success gratifying
to all and to none more pleasing than
himself. He has been resourceful,
enterprising, industrious, and his
work, both spiritual and material, has
brought the church to its best condi
tion since its institution.
The church membership and all
their affiliations, therefore, very much
regret to lose service at once so pleas
ing and profitable.
And these expressions, so earnest
and numerous, make his step one of
sorrow to him also.
Election of Officers.
At a recent meeting Frostburg
Bodge, No. 348, Loyal Order of Moose,
elected officers as follows for the cur
rent term of one year:
Dictator —George H. Kerns.

Bad Water.
Messrs. N. A. Long, George Stevens
and John J. McGready, representing
residents of Upper Ocean, lately called
upon H. V. Hesse, Superintendent of
the Consolidation Coal Company, with
a petition requesting investigation and
remedy of water-supply conditions in
that neighborhood. <
The people affected, have suffered
much inconvenience and fear of bad
| water from both springs and wells,
: and finally felt compelled to make
their uneasiness formally known.
Mr. Hesse received the committee
very graciously and assured them of
I his sympathy and aid at once.
Some Advice To Ah Adviser.
Frostburg, Md., March 12, 1913.
To the Mining Journai,.
“Bounce” was a noble dog —
Ace of the canine pack ;
In a gabbing gambol
He invited me to amble— \
I put him on the rack.
The turkey is a noble bird— •
Ace of the poultry deck ;
He gormandizes, struts and frets,
i And gets it in the neck.
“Shoe-maker, stick to your last!”
The wisdom of that old injunction
■ is truly exemplified in another con
-1 signment from “V. Sat Sapienti ,” in
last week’s issue of the Journai,.
; The article is a reply to several al
: lusions to the political standing,
worthiness, popularity, etc., of his
choice for town Post-Master.
My dear sir, you are an able (?) ad
vocate, but your claim to familiarity
with “the broad field of classic learn
. ing” has received several severe jolts
—administered by yourself.
Y'our story, imported from India by
one reputed to have traveled exten
sively; contains as much logic and wit
1 as your attempted eulogy a few weeks
ago of the miners dfd of sincerity.
Your friend evidently did not profit
much from his extensive travels.
One gets about as much out of the
story by reading it ferninst as by
reading it fer.
Its significance, if it has any, is
' known only to the author.
You make one coherent statement
with meaning fairly clear.
; You intimate that an enlightened
' public sentiment fails to see why an
ex-saloon-keeper should not aspire to
become Post-Master.
There is no law to prevent anyone
■ from aspiring to any position.
The public has a right, however, to
know something about the standing
of the candidates for public office,
politically and otherwise.
It has been the custom heretofore
' for the member of Congress to consult
the wishes of the people before ap
pointments are made and to be guided
largely by public sentiment thus as
certained.
Hon. David J. Lewis’ great success
, in public life is due in large degree to
t the fact that he has studied the wishes
as well as needs of the people and act
. ed in accord with his conclusions, and
we do not think he will now deviate
from that good habit.
The selection of a man to be Post-
L Master in itself is a very small mat
ter, but it is often followed by great
dissatisfaction, as was the case in
Cumberland some years ago.
i There is no doubt but that appoint
ment had much to do with the defeat
■ of the republican nominee for.Con
. gress, though the appointee is a com
, petent man, possessed of “great cour
age”—a quality on which “ Verbum S.
Sapienti ” laid much stress in a prior
“amble.”
: And now, “ Verbum Sat 5.,” since
i you have recently shown a relish for
stories, I take immense pleasure in
. referring you tb one which you may
■ read with profit, if not with pleasure.
It is not “a continued story,” for
; its title is “The Prog and the Ox,”
or vice versa.
i It was written by one Aesop, who
• did not travel “extensively;” never
theless, he wrote some short stories,
: easy to understand and containing
much food for thought.
It may be found in McGuffey’s First
. Reader.
Read it and remember the moral.
And now, dear “V. S. Sap.,” for the
present I bid you a fond adieu.
Euephantus Uquo Autior Est.
P. S.—l sincerely thank the Jour
nai, for courtesies extended to me
and patience borne with “V. S. S.”

Death of a Priest.
Rev. Dennis Micha;! McCormick,
pastor of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church,
Baltimore, died Sunday morning, 16th
inst., at the home of his mother, in
Washington, D. C., aged 39 years.
He was afflicted with inflammatory
rheumatism, and exposure to coldfour
weeks before at his father’s funeral
brought on the final attack.
After his ordination in 1898 he.was
assigned to ; duty in St. Michael’s
Church, this place, as assistant to the
late Rev. S. J. Clarke, and remained
here two years—a period all too brief
for the many friends he made here,
especially among the young. His love
of out-door sports and exercise made
him “one of the boys,” and it is said
that as a first baseman in baseball he
was an artist.
He served several churches after
leaving here and was popular in all.
His mother, two sisters and two
brothers, all of Washington, D. C.,
are bereaved.
