M. McLuckie, Wash ington, D. C. The booklet is an artistic piece of work, handsomely and humorously il lustrated, containing a great deal of well-written and merited praise con cerning “Uncle Sam’s brave boys in the Marine service. All of it which is in prose is very good, and the same can be said of some which is in ryhme, while some of the latter, however, is anything but good. In fact some of the rhyme is really rotten, but Mr. McLuckie, who is a fine young man and a son of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Me Luckie, of this city, is not to blame for it, and we are pleased to note that he seems to be proud of being one of “Uncle Sam’s” gallant boys in blue. LIFE CRUSHED OUT.

I’m up for big ‘ MW." Why has the United States senate ho ' committee of ways and means? , The constitution says all bills for raising revenue shall originate in the house of representatives and the sen ate has no need of a committee of that name. The senate committee on finance has charge of all business in that body connected with the public i revenue, taxation, banking, currency, etc. Where suffrage has been granted to women, does the privilege extend to the presidential vote? It does in some states, but in others only to local, municipal or school elec tions. Must I make a return if I receive an income tax blank from the internal revenue collector’s office even if my in come is less than the required amount? You need not make a return unless your Income is in excess of $3,000 (ex cept in case you are a married man and you and your wife have a com bined income of over $4,000i. What is the reason for the difference in the numbering of the Fahrenheit and the centigrade thermometers? The difference is in principle that between circular measure and the neat simplicity of the decimal system. When Fahrenheit had found that bis thermometer was capable of giving him a means of measuring heat the necessity for a scale presented itself. He was able to establish two constants of temperature-that at which a mix ture of salt and snow melts at one end of the scale, that at which water boils at sea level establishes the other. Evi dently with some reference to the fact that in circular measure the maximum distance possible to measure from one point to another is 180 degrees, he scaled 180 equal parts between these two lim its. He scaled the thermometer below his freezing point to its reading on a winter day colder than the oldest in habitant could remember to have ex perienced, and here he established bis zero. It chanced to be 32 degrees be low his freezing point. The centigrade on the other hand establishes its zero at freezing point and 100 degrees at the boiling point. These constants are selected because they may be so con veniently reproduced at any time and therefore obviate the necessity of maintaining an officially scaled stand ard. as must be the case with meas ures of length and capacity. Please give the name of the vessel built by the United States to be driven by electricity, to serve as a collier for ships at sea. The boat to which you refer is the Jupiter. It was built at the Mare Is land navy yard last year, the first elec trically driven seagoing vessel and the largest ever laid down on the Pacific coast. It is possibly too soon to tell whether she is a success or not. ECONOMICAL MANAGER n > ~ n Leading Man (of the Hardly Abel Dramatic Company—Let me have ten cents to get some soap.

Livengood, Jr., Aged 13. |K The standing in the Cumberland & -I , Georges Creek League has again changed. Cumberland was one-half M game behind Midland, when Cumber- M land defeated “Coney,” and “Coney” defeated Midland twice in succession, £J changing the score sto 4 and 4 to 3. 0* This put Cumberland a game and a half ahead of Midland, and made 3i Midland and “Coney” a tie for second place, with Frostburg next, and Bar ton, as usual, in the “cellar.” £! Frostburg seems to be fast gaining 0* her old stride, beating Barton last jK Saturday by 9 to S, and on Sunday again by 9 to nothing. Kolly and Ley die both pitched in Saturday’s game, n* and Platt caught. On Sunday the ?! same pitchers worked for Frostburg, 0* with Ryan at the receiving end. Dye 0\ and Lashbaugh were the batteries in* Sunday’s game "for Barton. The V score was 5 to 4 in the seventh'inning, Xi when Barton started a flight about a ?, decision of the umpire’s, and left the ground. When they did not return in 0t the 10 minutes allowed them, the game was given to Frostburg, 9 to 0. %£ Kolly is fast becoming the iron man *1 for Frostburg. He has pitched a lot of games of his own, and has to do r* the rescue act in all of the other games. He has pitched in pretty near every game Frostburg has play ed since he came here. He is a tall, slender, light, happy-go-lucky fellow, C. and is the idol of the Frostburg fans, ?] Later Notes. c] Since the above was put in type, ?’ our home team got another drubbing 0< at the hands of the Cumberland team, 0\ on our home ground. Dillon’s De mons were beaten by a score of 3 to 1 and the standing of the clubs can be i seen in the table appearing elsewhere ?: in this paper. wl It was awful for the home team to if get wallopped on pennant-raising day, •when the whole town was making a A/ splurge over the “rag pulled off the bush” last year, but the “Demons” t deserved a wallopping for being so 1 I disloyal to Frostburg as to get their 1 posters for pennant-raising day print ed away from home. t MAN WAS MADE OF DUST, but dust settles.
