The citizens of Westminster were
kept in a very nervous condition on
Saturday night about 12 o’clock when i
an alarm of fire was sounded for the:
stable and garage of Dr. Dewis K.
Woodward, West Main street, which
was burned to the ground with a
Ford Roadster and a Willys Knight
automobile, a chicken house with a I
number of prize chickens were also j
consumed in the blaze. The
garage of AJr. F. Thomas Babylon i
which adjoins Dr. Woodward’s was al- j
so consumed with his Cadillac touring
car and chicken house. The stable and
garage of Mr. Harry F. Cover was bad
,v damaged but the two automobiles
in the garage were saved before the
tire reached them. About 15 years ago '
lire destroyed the stables on the same
spot where these stood. The loss to 1
the above people will amount to $6,- 1
anti, which is partly covered by in- i
When this fire was about under
control the stable of John T. Anders,
at the junction of Pennsylvania ave- |
rme and Main street, and the stable
of Dr. Charles Billingslea, on East;
Main street, were set on tire and de
stroyed. The Anders stable was oc- 1
copied by Mr. Frank T. Shaeffer, who I
lost a horse and all his hay, straw,!
etc. .Mr. Shaeffer places his loss at
¥ Too with small insurance. The horses
and vehicles were taken from the Bil
lingslea barn and the loss sustained
by Mr. Billingslea was his barn, hay
and straw, and several small buildings
damaged. The loss is partly covered
by insurance.
An attempt was made to fire the
storage house of the Albaugh-Babylon
Grocery Company, wholesale grocers,;
but the fire went out before any dam
age was done.
The barrack of Mr. Keverdy Snader
was on tire but the blaze was extin
After it was seen that someone was 1
lying to burn tlie buildings of the
iwri a guard was placed all over the
' iiy to protect the property.
The guards saw a man standing in i
the yard of Mr. Upton Reaver, East
Main street, who started to run when 1
they went to interview him, and im- '
mediately they opened tire on him.
The man jumped the fence into Miss
Mary Reese’s yard and made his get- 1
away. 1
Muring the tire a man was seen to
ai out of the alley on West Main i
ireet into a corn field, who was shot i
at but was not hit. A posse soon gath- 1
-n-d and surrounded the field to cap- 1
m :<> the man. A search was made but "
’ a- man had made his escape. Our of- 1
beers got busy and made a search
through the city ami in some way they
were tipped-off that a man by the
name of Taylor was under suspicion i
mi was followed to Reisterstown. ;
•' in re he was found and arrested and i
ught to this city and lodged in jail i
ifi - a hearing.
Our tire company is to be congratu- b
d for the good service they render
■ in coping with all the fires at the
;if time. The water pressure was
ry good which was one cause of the
good work. i

f mday and Monday to repair and run
new cables.
The tire had considerable headway !
deft ire tiie alarm was sounded and it
was then with difficulty that the reels

of the lire, as the people were
bard to arouse on account of
<he lateness of the night. Auto

from one fire to the other.
A prowler was chased from the yard ,
"f Andrew Hood. East Main street,
while the first fire was about under
fontrol. He made his escape by jump- ,
big the fence to the adjoining yard.
All evening before the fire the citi- ,

other noises in the alleys.
A detective has been here all week
working on the case fiut so far has
not been able to place the deed on
any one, and is as far off as ever from
convicting anyone of the deed. Mr.
Taylor lias been questioned and gave, ;
a good account of his whereabouts
during the fire.
At the fire a man asked Rev. Walck

Liberty street, for the reel, when he
arrived at Earhart’s motorcycle shop
he asked Rev. Walck to stop and

Taneytown, on Friday evening, Sep

hear and know her. She was of a
cheerful disposition, with a pleasant
word and a smile for all whom she
met. The interest and sympathy of
the people are attested by the fact

• of them, Paul Brown Green, of Patap- 1

Why is Uncle Sam like George
Washington ?
Because he cannot tell a lie.
So, when he assures us—as he did
last week, through the State Agricul
tural College, in its letter to Mr.
Kinzy, (Agricultural Agent for Car-'
roll county) that he absolutely has no
intention of commandeering or taking
away from us, or in any way dictating
as to the private stores—such as pre
served fruits, jellies, vegetables, etc., •
put up by our women of Carroll; and
when he goes to the trouble to re
peat this statement through the Coun- i
cil of National Defense this week, let
us believe him. And if the time ever
comes when we cannot put out trust
in Uncle Sam—w r hen his written word
becomes like the German treaty with
Belgium—“a scrap of paper”—in oth- j
er words: when these United States
have gone wrong too —well, this old
world won’t be much of a place to
live in; that is all.
But until then let us believe in
Uncle Sam implicitly, for through
such a national attitude and no other,
can we co-operate with him in the
best sense, and without this universal
co-operation, the war Is lost. And do
we stop to figure just what that would j
mean to us? It would mean not only
hundreds of thousands of American
lives sacrificed, but authorities tell
! us. that it would also mean the paying
1 over to Germany by our Government
I (that is von and I) an indemnity of
i $125,000,000,000.
So it will repay us in more senses |
! than one to take no stock in that idea
which the German propaganda in
1 1country is trying to foster —of
lur!>* Sam’s cjnfiscating our conserv
;ed food, live stock or grains.
That which is now ours, will re
| main ours—except as contributions
come to Uncle Sam voluntarily from
\ us. So keep your potatoes, turnips
and apples in plain sight—so far as
1 Uncle Sam is concerned, for remem
ber. the old gentleman is as good at
that game as “Hide and Seek“as you.
in case he cared to take the trouble
to look you up.
To attempt to hide our belongings
in war times is unworthy, in two ways,
j In the first place, it is unpatriotic to
ward a government which is straining
| every effort to protect you, your home
and those very “belongings”; second
ly, it is hoarding, which is unfair, for

the simple reason that if it is right fois
one person to hoard, it is equally right!
and just for everyone possessing food
stuffs to hoard them, and if all did so,
it is easy to perceive that famine would
quickly spread over our land, because
of the fact that so large a percentage
of the consumers of food must exist
upon food purchased from the conn
paratively few, who are producers of
So “play fair” with Uncle Sam fod
your conscience’s sake as well as for
your pockets; for a nation’s prosperity
effects the prosperity of every indi
vidual of that nation.
So let us, in the few canning weekd
left, load up our shelves until they
groan with every perishable fruit or
vegetable that can be put into a jar.
And get the drying habit too, if you
1 haven’t it already, this means economy
of both space and receptacles. What
is the use of conserving a lot of wat
er? Or why use a glass jar when the
dry product may be kept in any
tight box or bag? l>et us win the war
j “in our kitchens” as the English now,
1 say.
If you should find that your gen
erous stores were over lapping into
the winter of 1918 and 1919, never
mind; remember you may not have
as many hands to help you produce
| the foodstuff next summer as you
have had this. You may be glad of
those extr„ jars.
Then too —while Uncle Sam does not
ask it of us—it is hoped that every
woman will reserve a generous .shelf
for him, just the same; he may need
it for the families of soldiers and
sailors, or indeed for any needy ones
of our communities, before this awful
war ends; for while the poor “always
ye have with you” they are especially
our responsibility in war time.
And now just one more important
thing. Please, housekeepers, send in
a list of the numbers of quarts of food
canned or dried by you this summer;
—sending it to the leader of your dis-<
trict as mentioned below, for listen to
the good news: word has come from
the Food Administration in Washing
ton, to the headquarters in Baltimore,
that Maryland stands at the top—

Charles Boylan, Baltimore. Writes
! About Flight Which Made Him
eligible As Aviator.
| Charles Boylan, pne of the Balti
moreans who was admitted to the
| United States aviation service a few;
months ago, has had a bird’s-eye view
iof France. He got this view a few
weeks ago when he ascended 10,000
feet on a trip on which he qualified for
j aerial service. He is now taking a
i special course in the hydroaeroplane
| service somewhere on the coast of
| This information was conveyed in a
letter from young Boylan to the Rev.
John E. Wade, pastor of Sts. Philip
and James’ Catholic Church. Boylan,
whose home is at 2813 Hampden ave
nue, is a member of Sts. Philip and
James’ parish. In his letter to the
priest the young aviator said that he
enjoyed the sensation of his first high
trip, and that France, with its rivers
and forests and villages, looked from
his lofty perch in the aeroplane like
some flower garden. He said that
when he returned to earth there was
a buzzing and a ringing in his ears
as if he had suddenly gone deaf.
At the services in the church Sun
day Father Wade asked the people of
the parish to pray for the safe return
of Boylan, whom he did not mention
by name.
Mr. Boylan is a native of this city,
having been born and raised in a
residence on Liberty street.
Westminster Boy in a Feck of Trouble.
What would probably have been
a.most daring holdup has been pre
vented through the arrest of Chas. S.
Noel, 19 years old, who says his home
is in Westminster, and Theodore Fine,
17 years old, of 222 South Caroline
street, Baltimore. Both youths were
arrested Wednesday. Both admit they
had planned to assault and rob the
nightclerk in the store of the Nattans
Drug Co., at Franklin and Howard
streets. A revolver and a piece of iron
bar w T ere recovered after the arrest,
the former the effects of Noel, while
the iron bar was found in a hand bag
belonging to Noel. The detectives
had been on the lookout for Noel, who
was wanted by them on a charge of
defrauding Mrs. Sadie Gardner out of
a board bill amounting to $24. The
scheme, as told, was to call the night
clerk to the back of the store where
Noel was to have been secreted by
Pine, just before closing time. Revol-i
vers w r ere to be thrust in his face, and
if. he then resisted the iron bar was
to be used to silence him. In the ef
fects of Noel the detectives also re
covered a number of articles, which,
they say, he admits having stolen from
a wholesale drug firm when employed
by them before going to work for thq
Nattans firm. _ j
