Not often is Frostburg- the scene of a celebration and a tragedy on the same day. But that’s just what will make Saturday memorable in Frostburg his tory. Iyittle did anybody think when the sun rose that morning over the splendidly decorated town that ere nightfall it would be clothed in the habiliments of mourning. There is such a contrast in the different scenes that we involuntary hesitate to connect them. The dark side shows that while making merry a soul was hastily sum moned to its Maker. Just how it hap pened or what was the actual cause may never be fully revealed. The facts in the case are hard to get but the fol lowing account seems to be true : At about four o’clock in the evening- a gypsy entered John Hartig-’s saloon on Broadway and g-ot some drink and in company with Con stable Foreman, of Cumberland. They were en tertaining the crowd by dancing the “highland fling,” when two Italians came in, the one that did the shooting and one, Tony Ruffo. Tony’s brother had just given him his pay and he, Tony, said to the gypsy that he had fifteen cents and if he would put five to it they would - have a drink. The gypsy said if he wanted a drink to go and get it and he would stand for it. After this the gypsy moved back in the corner ) and Tony moved up to him and started to quar rel. Tony knocked the gypsy down and the bartender ordered both out. The gypsy was > about half way up when the man called Francis co Moro, who had not had anything to say up to this time, moved backwards towards the door and when about six feet from the gypsy pulled the gun and fired, the ball going in the left eye, penetrating the brain, causing instant death. - The dead man leaves a wife and eight children, seven girls and one boy. After the shooting the Italian ran, followed by • a large crowd with cries of “lynch him.” He ran up the alley between Orman Street and Frost Avenue and in the rear of Mayor John N. I Benson’s residence was headed off by Robert , Welsh, who was on horseback. J. J. Mealing arrested the man and Moses Keller, who was l doing poiice duty, with drawn revolver warned t the man to make no resistance. Moro together with his companion, Arnone, were taken to Cumberland by Sheriff Martin, - assisted by Deputy McDonald and Anthony [ Rees. Policemen Henry Fisher and Justus Yungerman and Constables Lewis and England assisted them in escourting the prisoners to the j station and a wildly demonstrative crowd fol lowed. The officers were fearful of an attempt to lynch the men but there was no break made. At the station there was a congestion of people such as is seldom seen and the officers sighed re lief when they got their charges on the train and i it moved down the “Y” toward Cumberland. Levi Lovell was a well known gypsy in this section. He had been camping with his family, which included his wife and eight children, in i this section every summer for several years. Last summer he camped near Narrows Park. He was a horse trader, and it is reported, had . made a trade just before he was killed. His [ wife took advantage of the crowd in Frostburg to sell lace and tell fortunes. In the afternoon Lovell with two horses attached to a spring wagon came to town, although his wife told him not to do so, as he had already visited the town ■ once that day. He made several purchases about town and merchants with whom he dealt state they were impressed with his open, quick meth ods. He stopped his team in front of Hartig’s - saloon and there met a crowd of men strangers to him. All were drinking, but it is said, that not once did Lovell indulge in an intoxicant, but > always drank pop. l An inquest was held Saturday night. Thejury was composed as follows : Samuel Bowen, fore man, Otto Hohing, Jethro Jeffries, Jos. S. Shaw, i Henry K. Neff, John H. Donahoe, Daniel C. f Brode, Wm. Wrimby, John H. Lewis, Newton Dawson, W. L. Davis, and Thomas H. Morgan. • Mr. Morgan was the efficient clerk to the jury. The witnesses before the jury were Dr. C. C. Jacobs, George Foreman, Ed. Hershberger, James Morris, Henry Zinken, Morris Bean, Dav ■ id Pugh, Moses Keller, Frank Metzger, Robert Walsh, Thomas J. Richards, Janies Hoskins. Tony Ruffo, James Moore and Dennis Jones. r Of the above, Foreman, Hershberger, Morris, l Pugh, Hoskins, Ruffo and Moore were in the - saloon when the tragedy occured. The verdict was : “ That we find Levi Lovell came to his death from a pistol shot wound in . flicted by one Frank Moro, and that Peter Ar none be held by the authorities of Allegany County as an accessory to the crime.” > The testimony of the witnessed threw little light on the murder, except that it was a cold blooded affair, and was the result of a trivial l quarrel in which Arnone figured, p The body laid in the soloon several hours be , fore it was removed by Undertaker C. F. Nickel. Justice John Chambers, acting as coroner, sum moned a jury, which viewed the bod}' lying doubled up against the steps leading through the back doorway. Lovell’s head was resting ’ against a barrel lying lengthwise. Striking the • iron hoop in the fall made an abrasion on the 1 head. A large pool of blood covered the floor. Mrs. Ellen Hall, the dead man’s mother, came here on Monday and took charge of the remains which were on Tuesday taken to Baltimore for interment. The Italians all worked at Keeley, or Union Mine No. 2. Moro has not been in America long t and was not naturalized. Lovell, it is under r stood, was never naturalized and was at his death a subject of the king of Great Britain. Mr. Prospero Schiaffino, the Italian Consul at p Baltimore, called at the office of Governor Smith p Monday to lay before the Governor the case of Frank Moro and Peter Arnone, the two Italians ’ who are held on the charge of killing Levi Lovell l at Frostburg. He wanted the Governor to write to the sheriff of Allegany County to use ever)' means to protect the men. The Governor was > not at the office, but Mr. Schiaffino obtained his address and said he would communicate with . him. 1 Newly Discovered Bird Mimicry. M. H. Coupin, a well known natural ist, tells some curious stories in regard to the ability which certain birds pos sess of imitating the sounds made by ■ other animals, as recently discovered by him. He says that one of the most remark ' able instances of this kind that ever - came under his observation was that i of a sparrow which imitated the strid . ulation of a grasshopper. The cage containing the sparrow was hung dur ing one spring beside another cage in ’ which were grasshoppers. At that i time the bird took no notice of his i neighbors, but next year, when he was again in the same society, he made sev eral attempts to sing like the grasshop ! pers, and for the rest of his life, long i after the grasshoppers were dead, he ; was wont at times to utter a sort of : polyglot strain, partly made up of the notes of grasshoppers and partly of the notes of other birds. M. Coupin also says that young lin nets will sometimes learn the song of the nightingale instead of their own ' and that there are several kinds of birds in Thuringia which sing much : better than the members of their own species which dwell in the Harz moun i tains. The Cake That Wai Burned. There was a little cook, and she made a little J cake; . She put it in the oven just to bake, bake, bake. It was full of plums and spice • And everything that’s nice, And she said, “An hour, I reckon, it will take, take, takel” And then that little cook went to have a little play With a very charming cat across the way, way, : way; She forgot the cake, alack 1 It was burnt, well, almost black, • And I wondered what the cook’s mamma would say, say, say l The little cook ran off and confessed her tale ol woe, For to find her cake a cinder was a blow, blow, blow. “Cheer up,” her mother said As she stroked the golden head, “For accidents will happen, we all know, know i knowl” , —Cassell’s Little Folks. ALCOHOLIC DISEASE. THE EFFECTS OF LIQUOR ON THE NERVOUS SYSTEM. Dr. Charles 1,, Dana Finds That the Drunkard Generally Lives Less Than Fifteen Years After Acquir ing the Drink Habit. An important discussion on the influ ence of alcohol on the nervous system took place at the New York Academy of Medicine not long ago when vari ous eminent physicians recorded their observations and experiences. Dr. Charles L. Dana, in introducing the subject, regarded it both in its prac tical and scientific aspects. lie based bis observations on the careful study of 350 cases of alcoholism at Bellevue hospital. The most fre quent form of alcoholism was period ical dipsomania, and the next was pseudo dipsomania. Over two-thirds of the total number of patients had be gun to “drink” before the age of 20 years and all of them before 30 years. “As a rule,” said Dr. Dana, “the drunk ard did not live more than 15 years, and it was seldom that the human or ganism could outlive more than 3,000 intoxications.” Death in alcoholics usually occurred from pneumonia, meningitis, delirium tremens, alcoholic insanity or demen tia. Dr. Herman Biggs stated that in 15 years the cases he had seen of drink were those resulting from indul gence in whisky and beer, the majority of patients taking two or three glasses of whisky and four or five pints of beer daily. In these cases cirrhosis of the liver was relatively less frequent, while the degenerative effects, such as disease of the heart, blood vessels and kidneys, were much more common. Looking over the records of the health depart ment of New York he found a short time ago that whereas during 20 years the population had increased by from 50 to 60 per cent, the number of deaths recorded as due to degenerative dis eases of the heart and blood vessels, most frequently of alcoholic origin, had increased by nearly 150 per cent, and almost the same was true of kidney diseases. The excessive consumption of lager beer in the United States, as in Germa ny, produced renal disease and cerebral accidents. Professor M. Allen Starr said that of the various alcoholic bever ages champagne produced exhilaration of spirits and stimulation of the flow of ideas, while burgundy made a per son think more slowly and by no means added to the feeling of conviviality. Alcohol seemed to affect the brain more than it did other parts of the nerv ous system. There was practically no known disease of the spinal cord pro duced by alcoholism, but neuritis or in flammation of the nerves was common. The pathology of alcoholic insanity is today clear and characteristic. The researches of various observers, especially Andriezen and Berkley, show that the alcoholic poison produces de struction of the epidendritic “gem mules” belonging to the nerve cells of the brain, thus rendering the organ rel atively incapable of receiving impulses, weakening reaction time and producing loss of memory in general, features which were characteristic of nearly ail forms of chronic alcoholism. The neurasthenia of the chronic drunkard is dependent on degenerative changes in the protoplasm of his brain cells. Such persons are little open to medical treatment, but are more sus ceptible to social and religious influ ences. Judge McAuley on Rnm. Judge McAuley of Kansas City in committing a “plain drunk” to the workhouse delivered himself of the fol lowing little speech. This is the judge before whom Mrs. Nation was brought: “If I had my way, 1 would not only close every saloon in the country, Sun days and weekdays, but I would stop the sale of intoxicating liquors in any shape or for any purpose whatsoever. I would make it a crime to manufac ture the stuff. “This may appear to he farreaching, but the sentiment is justified by the sights and experiences in this court room. Ninety-five per cent of the cases tried here are the direct result of whis ky; the other 5 per cent includes mor phine and cocaine.” Arsenical Poisoning: From Beer. In the majority of cases of the so called arsenical poisoning by beer the gravity of the symptoms has far ex ceeded those produced by any possible quantity of arsenic absorbed. This has been somewhat vaguely attributed to the formation of some biological organ ic compound of arsenic of a more in tensely toxic nature than arsenic itself. It has been suggested that these symp toms indicate as a more probable cause the presence of selenium, which has been found in quite a considerable quantity even in several forms of puri fied sulphuric acid. It is practically cer tain that any selenium in the acid would pass into glucose during the process of inversion. A Cause of “Race Trouble.” Excessive use of whisky is a promi nent cause of the so called “race trou bles” in the south. When drunk, the negro is boisterous, insulting and dan gerous. His revengeful nature comes to the surface, and he often commits theft or a nameless crime which leads him to a hangman’s noose, or perhaps he is burned at the stake, as is some times the case when these horrible out rages take place. British Beer. One thousand and forty million gal lons of beer brewed yearly in the Unit ed Kingdom equals the total amount brewed by America, France and Aus tria. POLITICAL ANNOUNCEMENT. FOR SHERIFF : ULYSSES HANNA, of District No. 26. Subject to tlie decision of the Republican Nominating Convention. ON THE MOUNTAIN TOP. Mountain Castle, No. 16, Kniglits of the Golden Eagle, runs an ex cursion to Mt. Lake Park. Tuesday, July 30th, will go down in the history of Mountain Castle, No. 16, Knights of the Golden Eagie, as one of the gala days never to be forgotten. The weather was all that could be desired on such an occasion- bright, but not too hot. When the train left Frostburg at 7 o’clock it had nearly 400 passengers on board all in the best of spirits and re solved to make the most of the day’s outing. And not forgetting that “mu sic hath charms” the Castle took along the German Arion Band, the most pro ficient in Western Maryland and the greatest in all the world to Frost burgers. All along the line additions were made to the numbers and when Mt. Lake Park was reached it was dis covered that the party numbered about 600. Mountain Castle was joined at Lona coning by Coney Castle and at Mt. Lake by the Castle there, the latter having made some arrangements tc entertain the visitors. Arriving at Mt. Lake Park about 10 o’clock, the crowd dispersed in various ' directions —some to Deer Park, some to Oakland, some anywhere and every where, but the greatest number made 1 for the lake to enjoy a row on its placid waters, a real pleasure as can be vouch ed for by the editor, whose first exper ience at pulling the oars dated on that memorable day. Mt. Lake Hotel was made headquar ters and that there was no mistake made in the selection all who shared in the hospitality of that institution will readily admit. , The chief attraction of the day was , probably the game of base ball in the afternoon between the married and single men of Mountain Castle. The line up of the married men, orthe “Red 1 Shirts,” as they were called from the fact that each wore a maroon colored shirt, was as follows: James Dean, , catcher ; Alexander Kelso, pitcher and . right field ; William Crow, shortstop ; . John D. Keller, first base; David Greening, second base; David G.Lew -1 is, third base; Philip Pfeiffer, left field; Henry Lemmert, right field and pitcher; Edward Kight, center field. The “Bachelors” lined up as follows: John 11. Dunstan, catcher; David 1 Griffith, pitcher; Elmer Kight, short ■ stop: John Rase, first base; James Jenkins, second base ; Jas. Richardson, ' third base ; Philip Jenkins, left field ; 1 John Elerick, right field ; George Ha ger, center field. Peter Lammert um pired. Henry F. Cook scored, and was , to have acted in the capacity of an am bulance corps but there was no occasion i for his services. At the end of the fifth inning we are not so sure the “Old Fellows” “threw up the sponge” in order to let Mt. Lake and Lonaconing have the ground. Be that as it may very few runs were made ■ while Lammert pitched and there’s no ■ telling what “might have been” had 1 the game continued. However, the ' score stood Bto2 in favor of the“ Bac helors” when the game was called. After soaring around the mountains all day the Eagles left at 8 o’clock on the homeward flight delighted with the trip, but very tired, and glad when they reached home nearly three hours later.
