Fiie leveled the 73-year-old Freedman's Bureau for Negro Refugees near here early Monday morning, wiping out one of the old landmarks of the Eastern Shore. The blaze doomed the two-story frame etruc- .ture--established by the government March 3, 1865--before firemen could be summoned. It was believed to be the only building still standing of the bureaus built after the Civil War to care for freed Negro slaves. The fire, e tart ing between 12:30 and 1 o'clock Monday morning, was discovered by William Chambers. He told Denton firemen, six miles away, that the committee, structure was already destroyed. It had not been used since 1910. William Boy ton, a northerner, donated tho land for the bureau when the federal government started its movement to assist the. freedmen. It functioned as a bureau for a few years, and then, later, until 1910, the upper floor was used as a school, and the ground floor for church meetings by Negroes. Harry H.

On Friday evening, December 9, a group of Methodist Young People met at the community house at Bethlehem, Md. There was an air of enchantment and reverence attached to visiting Bethlehem at Chrwtmastide, for one could mentally turn back tho pages of time and visualize a cold, starless eve a long time ago, when the three wt?e men saw a star in the east, and following it, came to Bethlehem, the little town where tho Christ Child, today our Savior, was born.

Proof of this was supplied a few days ago when the Republican National Committee met in Washington and chose two conservatives to fill two vacancies on the executive There had been some reason to believe the Republicans had learned something from the 1936 election, but evidently they have not. Certainly in their own ranks there are many who realize and appreciate the modern, and necessary, trend toward liberalism in the United States. Not radicalism, but liberalism. There must be keen disappointment in this liberal element of the Republican party because of the two appointments made by the National Committee. It indicates little headway has been made in rejuvenating the party and that the old guard intends to maintain dominance in party Whoever said "the old guard dies, but never surrenders," must have had the Republican National Committee in mind. Heartened, no doubt, by the results of the November election, when the Republican party gained a considerable number of seats in the Congress of the United States, the ultra-conservative element of the party will endeavor to gain such complete dominance of the party machinery before the National convention meets in 1940 as to control the convention and nominate a dyed-in-the- wool conservative' for President, expecting that many Democrats will support such a candidate. It may be, however, conservative Republicans don't treat with the importance it deserves the very evident fact that the most conservative Democrat is about as liberal as the most liberal Republican. This could mean the difference between victory and defeat. TO STAMP COLLECTORS If you are a stamp collector, or arc looking around for an interesting hobby, here is a suggestion from Dr. R. H. Riley, Director of the Maryland State Department of Health. "If you haven't done so already," Dr. Riley said, "start this year to make a collection of tuberculosis Christmas seals. "Just as in postage stamps," he continued "there is some distinctive feature in each series of the tuberculosis seals to add to its interest. This year it happens to be biographical. In the corners of each sheet of a hundred seals, you will find the portraits of four pioneers in the fight against tuberculosis. First comes Theophile Laennec, the young French doctor and research worker, who, in 1819, accidentally discovered, from observing some boys at play, that sounds were greatly intensified if listened to through some appropriate medium. He applied the principle, crudely at first, and later developed it into what he * called a 'stethoscope' meaning chest examiner, a device that is now an essential part of the equipment of every doctor. The stethoscope was only one of Lnennec's contributions to the early study of -tuberculosis. "In another corner is a tiny portrait of Robert Koch, the great German bacteriologist, who in 1882, after years of painstaking ctudy, isolated the germ that causes tuberculosis. Koch's discovery eventually revolutionized the treatment of the disease, which for centuries had ranked as the Captain of the Men" of Death'. "Portrait, number three, is that of a great American leader in the fight against tuberculosis -- Edward Livingston Trudeau-- a young New York physician, who developed the disease, and, in 1873, went to the Adirondacks to spend what he thought would be the few years remaining to him, in his beloved mountains. Instead of dying, he began to improve, and took up again the practice of medicine. A translation of Koch's report of his discovery reached him. He communicated with him; got a supply of the living germs from Koch's laboratory, and began his own study of them. In 1884, at Saranac Lake, he opened the first sanatorium in the Untied States for the modern treatment of tuberculosis. The great laboratory and tho sanatorium that bear Trudeau's name were developed from these early beginnings, and led the way for similar services in other parts of this country.

When man is governed by God, the ever-pre»ent Mind who understands all things, man knows that with God are possible.--Mary "The last portrait in the quartet is that of Holboell, the Danish postal clerk, who in 1904 suggested the use of the tuberculosis Christmas seals, as a means of raising funds for the fight against tuberculosis. The idea was widely adopted and the annual Christmas seal sale soon became an important way of raising money for the tuberculosis campaign, in many countries. Each country originates its own designs and many arc very beautiful. All have one symbol in common -- the double barred cross that is the mark all over the world of the fight against tuberculosis. "The seals sold in this country ore gotten out by the National Tuberculosis Association. The four tiny portraits are only a part of this yenrV series. The remaining 90 seals in each sheet of a hundred, carry a tiny picture of n family group and emphasize the thought of protecting the home from tuberculosis.

E VERY CAUTIOUS DURING CHRISTMAS WEEK Increased vigilance on the part of oth motorists and pedestrians is rged by the Keystone Automobile lub'in a bulletin warning of danger- us traffic conditions in shopping istricts, during the Christmas sea- on. "Motor vehicle traffic as well a.s edestrian traffic," said Matthew P. anley, Manager of the Eastern hore Division of the Club, "is usu- lly heavy because of the Christmas topping 'rush'. Drivers should be cx- remely careful in passing through lopping districts. "Care should be exercised at inter- cctions, for pedestrians are liable o dart from the sidewalk at uncx- ected times. 'Jaywalkers' also, are revalent at.this time." Pedestrians are also urged to use aution when crossing streets. "Many hoppers," continued the Club manger, "arc unused to walking in heavy raffic and become confused. This is specially true of elderly persons. In lew of the obvious hazards, we rec- mmcnd that all walkers cross only t intersections and especially during lis time of the year. In brief, we wish to urge upon very motorist and every pedestrian ic need for caution in congested reas. Each year accident records oar in the pro-Christmas season and cneral cooperation will be required to revent the toll from rising this year, he attempted 'saving' of a few min- tes often proves costly in human fo."

Eighty-nine long years she spent with us, wars and peace sped by: The iivil War; the Spanish American Var; the World War, and peace ere he left us. To know her was to love er and by her faith and goodness we were inspired with courage to press nward through life's journey and to meet life's hardships with a song in ur hearts. A life of loveline-s and ..eauty--a soul has gone out in the and of the ever-living. Her gentleness reaches beyond the confines of ur small circle to add more of warmth and color to the whole universe. Her life was like n rich cathe- Iral window with the last rays of the ivening sun, the rose of love, the sky due of serenity, the mosaics of Christ ind little children blessing the whole scene"., Loving life as it came, she ended the sick and clothed the needy, watched over the children--"suffer ittle children to come unto me". She utened to their little joys and sorrows, to their secrets and they grew .o manhood and womanhood the bct- for her love. She is gone--great- heart is just away. A thin mist hides icr from our eyes but not from oui icarts. Tomorrow the mist will rise and her children, grandchildren, relatives and friends will realize more r ully a life crowned with honor am ;lory. _ SMITHSON Mr. and Mrs. James Toft and Miss Carolyn Toft and Mr. and Mrs. Mel vin Willoughby were Salisbury vis itors on Saturday.
