P. in in Garrett county is united and Re publicans are anxious to redeem the district from the disastrous results that have followed Democratic suc cess and the machinations of the Wil son administration. Republicans ev erywhere in the county are anxious to register and vote for the party as a protest against Democratic misman agement. The large sawmills at Jennings and Crellin were only working half time, it was found, whereas, previous to Democratic success, full time and prosperity was always the regular thing. All these conditions, it is felt, will bring out a strong vote in Gar rett county for Senator Zihlman. The places visited were Grantsville, Bittinger, Oakland, Crellin, Hoyes, McHenry, Sang Run, Friendsville and Accident. Clerk of the Court Shaffer, who when a commercial traveler had tra versed the county, was greeted every where as an old friend. Some Great Potatoes, Apples and Grapes.

The indications are that “John Bar leycorn’s” days will soon be num bered in the entire United States, and he who invests much in the liquor business, these days, invests in a very uncertain business.

Message From The Sky . An Airship Sails Over Frostburg and Drops Down “Dippy” Dem ocratic Dope. On Tuesday afternoon a great many Frostburg people for the first time in their lives saw an airship, when an aviator giving demonstrations for the Cumberland Fair, sailed over our city and dropped down much “dippy” Democratic dope in the form of cir -1 culars prepared by J. C. Shriver, 1 chairman of the Democratic State Central Committee. The circular was headed —"A Mes sage From The Sky”—and it urged voters to be sure to go their polling places and register, at the same time urging them in particular to register as Democrats. In support of the lat ter phase of the urging, a number of reasons of the barnyard confetti brand were given. The circular goes on to state that the Republican party in its early days had the interests of man at heart, and that its early history shed glory upon the country, but alleges that it is now a very bad party, while the Democratic party is referred to as embodying about everything good. Rats, rats, you boasting Democrats! You have nothing to boast of at all, but a big lot to be ashamed of, so far as the record of your old soup-house party is concerned. Beginning with, and ever since the administration of “Ten-Cent Jimmie” Buchanan, your party has done nothing but demon strate its dodering donkeylike degen eracy and absolute unfitness and in ability to manage the affairs of this great country. Some years ago some cartoonist wjth regard for the eternal fitness of things, drew the picture of a jackass and labeled it the “Democratic Party.” And the degenerate and donkeylike Democratic leaders felt highly hon ored, and at once adopted it as their party emblem. Ever since that time the Democratic party has done noth ing but kick and make a disagreeable notse, just like the long-eared quad ruped that serves as its emblem. Even now the country is facing a deficit and great industrial depression in time of peace and enormous crops, and all because the Democratic party was returned to power a little over a year ago through the folly of a family quarrel in the Republican party. Through its idiotic tariff-tinkering, not enough revenue is produced to run the country on, and the Demo cratic leaders are telling us that the European war is causing all the de pression. The European war is a convenient scapegoat, only that and nothing more, and every'observing man could see, and all unprejudiced people admit that before an European war was even dreamed of in this country, there was a great industrial depression and a financial stringency, with work get ting scarcer and scarcer, and the cost of living mounting higher and higher, instead of coming down as the Demo cratic party had promised us it would. The Democratic message from the sky fell as lightly, we think, as the paper it was printed on. Anyway, 1 you can safely bet that when a mes sage favorable to the Democratic par ty comes from the sky, it comes from no higher source than a foolhardy fellow willing to risk his life in an aeroplane for filthy lucre —from a man | riding in a craft as unreliable and as , undependable as the Democratic ship of state, the rottenest, leakiest old derelict afloat. Men’s Bible Class. The Men’s Bible Class of the First i English Baptist Church, of this city, on Sunday effected an organization by the election of the following officers to serve for the ensuing year: President—L. L. Bradley. First Vice President—Charles G. Shumaker. Second Vice President—Earl Sterry. Third Vice President—James Mac- Farland. Teacher—Rev. J. C. Walker. Treasurer—Albert Harvey. Secretary and Reporter—Wm. A. Shoemaker. The class starts out with a member ship of more than a dozen, and it is hoped that before the year closes that number will be doubled, or even treb led. It is proposed to make a system atic canvass of the city with the view of enrolling the men of the Baptist persuasion, as well as those who are not affiliated with any church or Sun day school. The class for the present meets with the school each Sunday morning at 9:30 o’clock, but when the improve ments now being made to the church edifice are completed, different and more suitable arrangements as to meeting and recitation will be made. A cordial invitation is extended to the men of Frostburg to join the class. The lessons are interestingly present ed by Rev. Walker, who is a compe tent and painstaking teacher, and who has the interests of the men of this city at heart. Join the class and spend an hour each Sunday morning both pleasantly and profitably.
