Another Caroline Countlan Honored, It has been frequently noted that a large percentage oE the young men who years ago sought a wider field for their talents than Caroline county then afforded, and who left their ,native county, have been usually successful. Scores o£ them are found in the ministerial and legal professions, in commerce and various branches of'trade. Another instance of the success of the native Carolinian is that of Mr. William F. Chilton, who on Tuesday last was chosen mayor of the city of Frederick. He was born in this county in 1843. Altogether a Miittc-r of Business. A Pennsylvania exchange says: A lady asked if etiquette required one to knock at the door of an editor's sanctum? If you are coining to pay your subscription or bring iu a nice juicy item of news, don't stop to knock, but walk right in as if you owned the place. If on the other hand, you are ou a collecting or begging tour, you should make the fact k n o w n through the window, and then knock at the door nutil the editor opens it. If he does not open it in an hour call again. To Plunk a Shad. Planks of oak 12 feet long are arranged around the blazing branches, and the shad are nailed on them with ten-penny nails.

Copies of a new regulating the granting of State and other licenses have been sent to all the clerks of the court of the State. The provisions of the law arc of general importance. The law provides that: "The clerks shall grant in every person who shall apply for the same such license as ho may desire and be authoiized to obtain, properly filled up and signed by thorn, but they are expressly forbidden to a n t i - d a t e any license or issue to any person or persons any license other than in the month of which the same is legally obtainable, unrler a penalty of $50 for each aud every offense, Scaul penalty to be recovered by an action at law upon his official bond. E v e r y clerk shall lay before every grand j u r y a t t e n d i n g his coiut a list of all licences g r a n t ed him fur two years prior to the m e e t i n g of such grand j u r y , sotting f o i t h in f u l l the names o£ the patties licensed, the date of is.Mie, tho a m o u n t of capital stock, i l a n y . the e x p i r a t i o n and the v.ilno of sui-li licenses u n d e r penalty as above. It is stated rliat a great m a n y merchants neglect to secure licenses promptly ou or before May 1, and all such would bo liable to indict- m e n t for t h i s uegluet if the grand j u r i e s should strictly enforce the law where lapses s h o u l d bo discovered. The law is, tlieiefore, interesting to the merchants as well as tho clorks of the d i f f e r e n t courts. St:ite Council of tlic Junior Orilur. The State Council of the Junior Order United Ameiican Mechanics met in Salisbury on Tuesday, last. The town was gaily bedecked with flags and b u n t i n g in honor of the event. When the meeting was called to order there were f o u n d to be more than two h u n d r e d aud fifty delegates present. Rev. Clinton T. Wyatt delivered the address of welcome- He fired the spirit ofpatriot- inm and e n t h u s i a s m a m o n g the m e m - bers to a degree seldom witnessed in a State Council meeting. His reference to the cardinal principles of the order--"Virtue, Liberty and Patriotism"--was eloquent andelicit- ed hearty and prolonged applause. Tho climax of uuthusiasm was reached when he alluded to affairs iu Cuba, graphically p i c t u r i n g the horrors of Spanish cruelty, and the imperative d u t y of this g o v e r n m e n t to i n t e r v e n e . He declared that our i n h e r e n t love for liberty should inspire w i t h i n every b i u a s t tho hope that ere long the same freedom enjoyed iu this c o u n t i y would be the heritage of the d o w n trodden aud oppressed Cubans. "When the roll is called," ho said, "none will more readily respond to the call to arms than the Juniors." JSiirrsvlllu. Miss Katie Burke, who is teaching school at Odessa, Delaware, was home on a visit on Monday. Gale Son, of Atlanta, Delaware, have been this week negotiating for the purchase of Mr. W. P. Stafford's store. It is said Mr. Stafford is contemplating retiring. Rev. H. W. D. Johnson and family, who after conference visited relatives at Bay View, Cecil, have returned home. Mr. Johnson will hold service at Burrsville and Ames tomorrow. Mrs. Dr. Saulsbury has returned from a visit in Dover. Levy Conrt. The county coramissiouerson Tuesday last appointed Wm. H. Casho a trustee of the poor in place of Thos. F. Jackson, resigned. The commissioners ordered a metal case for the record books of the office. This case will be placed in the vault. The commissioners were interviewed on the subject of road machines by a representative of a road machine company. They decided not to buy any new machines. An Interesting Sult.l A suit has been docketed for trial in tho circuit court for Kent county, now in session at Chestertown, that may be of vital importance to the boards of town commissioners of Maryland towns. Mr. Whiteloy Johnson, whose fine store building and stock of goods were destroyed by fire some time ago, has sued ( h e town board for $15,000, alleging t h a t t h e board .was guilty of contributory negligence by failure to enforce a compliance of tbe water-works company w i t h its contract with the taxpayers of Chestertown, in regard to the head of water iu its standpipe. Mr. Johnson alleges that the fire could have been extinguished before it had done him any material damage, if the required amount of water had been in the standpipe. IIo bases his plea of the town's liability on the facts that taxes were levied upon his property to maintain the (ire-extinguishing apparatus of the town, the water supply included, and that it was the d u t y of the town board to keep (ho apparatus and water supply at all times iu readiness. That is the point of interest to town boards. ^ -y Directors ol the N«\\ Ifunk. The stockholders of the People's National Bank, soon to be started in this place, held s, meeting on Thursday lust and elected the following directors : Robert Jarrcll, Joseph H. Bernard, Thomas L. Day, Paul Hoi- singer, Fred. R. Owens, Frank A. Porter, Henry T. Nuttle, Willard C. Todd, J. Frank L e d n u m , Albert W. Sisk, and Frank P. Covey. There wilt be a meeting of directors early in May, when a president, vice-president, and perhaps other officers will be chosen, and definite steps taken toward the opening of business. It is quite probable that tho institution will be in operation soon, iu temporary quarters, before the new bank- ing'house is built. It is said that Mr. Joseph H. Bernard will likely be president and Mr. $. R. Owens vice-president of the bank. Orphans' Court Proceedings. Judges Sigler aud Orroll were present at the session of the Orphans' Court on Tuesday. The will of George H. Moore, do- ceaso-l, was admitted to probate, and letters testamentary granted to J. Allen Moons aud George C. Moore, tho executors named therein, and Clinton B. Jar man and Thomas B. Longfellow were appointed to appraise the personal estate. No.tiee to creditors of deceased was ordered. The will of John Collins, deceased, was filed, and the conrt ordered notices to be sent to heirs and devisees that it would stand for probate on Tuesday, April 2(ith. Lillie E. Smith and Wesley Roe, administrators of William H. Smith, deceased, presented an inventory and appraisement of deceased's personal estate. Commissions and certificates of qualification of John A. Sigler as chief judge, and Abram R. Wright as associate judge, were presented, and they entered u p o n their duties accordingly. J. Edward Willis, guardian to Samuel Homy Horsey, presented his final account of g u a r d i a n s h i p . OUR GAME LAWS ARE TO BE ENFORCED The (lame I'roLi-rllM- Assuchit Itm is In t'A\Tl\CSt. Baltimore Sun Members of t h e M a r y l a n d Game and Fish Protective Association say they are m u c h encouraged by the progress so far made, as enough of t h e i r original d r a f t was retained by the Legislature to produce in part the expected results. An especially effective clause relates to exposure of game for sale or having it in pos- sesafe^| in the closed season iu this State. The old law did not stipulate that it was u n l a w f u l to have in possession game killed in other States. This is corrected in the new law. The game protectors Jsay that there will now be no i n c e n t i v e to kill game out of season since it cannot bo sold out of season. The association did not try to enforce the old law after the Court of Appeals had decided one case against it, in which the loophole was the claim t h a t the game was killed outside of Maryland- The new law is to be enforced vigorously. That the fish bill could not be reached iu time for passage is deplored by tho association, but it is by no means dead. It will be takou up aud put into shape by the next Legislature. Members of the association say they have had a strong ally in Governor Lowudes, and believe that tho placing of tue oyster navy at the game warden's disposal in the efforts to enforce the fish laws now on the books will aid materially iu correcting abuses heretofore common. Though some persons claim that the wonderful increase in game iu Maryland in the last two years has been due to the lack of g u n n i n g aud tho open winter, other observers accredit it to tho purchase and distribution of stock birds, a movement urged aud encouraged by the association. Application for positions as deputy game wardens are still being received from all parts of the State, aud every day the co-operation of those appointed is reported to be stronger. As an evidence of the activity aud earnestness of these deputies every mail brings correspondence asking for interpretations of the law, instructions or notifying Game Warden Morris that the disposition to obey the laws is rapidly growing in all localities. The association aims to have its forces so well massed by January. 1900, that there will be uniformity of action, so t h a t many of the complications caused by local county laws will bo wiped out. The association starts now free from debt, after having accomplished, according to an expression of the State game warden, f n l l y 100 per cent, more than he expected it would by this time.

Clothing for stout people, slim people and regular sized. We can fit anybody. J. C. GODWIN Co., Easton, Md. Our Hen u Vnlilublo Foul. The hen lays Eor us, not in an offensive sense, b u t iu tho very best and slaucrless use of that term. Her eggs aggregate in value the surprising sum of $200,000,000 a year. This comes from a strict attention to business, f r o m constant hustling and from a genuine desire to do her duty. She cackles loudly when she lias laid an egg, but she is entitled to do this, for it is the aggregate of single eggs w h i c h m o u n t up to such 'a magnificent total. A f t e r serving her day and generation as an egg producer, the American hen lays down her life as a spring chicken, and is useful even alter death. Some t h o u g h t f u l persons are of the opinion t h a t the hen is bettor qualified for the position of national bird t h a n is tho eagle. What has the eagle ever done for this country? Let tho eagle's friends speak.--Pittsburgh Chronicle Telegraph. Uc:U!i I' airs. Nuttle.

It is said that quite a n u m b e r of tho tasablcs of his hundred have been dodging him while ho was in this condition. He is all right now, and tho tax-dodgers had better understand that Mr. Smith means business aud their taxes must be paid at once. Smyrna. Gall. Mrs. A.

The one mac named for this i m p o r t a n t trust is William F. Stone, former City Register, whose administration in the City Hall elicited tho admiration and approval of the entire financial world of Baltimore. His retention was urged by all the leading bankers of tho city and the testimonial given him upon his retirement was perhaps the most flattering ever bestowed upon an officer of the municipality. So far as cau be learned there will be no opposition to the a p p o i n t m e n t of Mr. Stone as Collector. Senator Wellington, Congressman Barber, Booze, Mclntiro aud Baker have indorsed his candidacy aud w i l l d o a l l in their power to convince the President that he is tho right man for the place. It is generally conceded that Mr. Mc- Kinloy is desirous of making Mr. Stone Collector, and realizes that he would greatly popularize his administration in Maryland by the selection of the niau who has the indorsement of the leading financiers and business men of the community. A determined effort is to be made to knock out Postmaster Warfield, who is now slated to succeed himself. The Malsterites will use all the influence they can bring to bear upon Senator-Elect McComas to prevent his nomination. It is not likely, however, that they will succeed in this. The Judge is under obligations to Warfield and will probably pay the debt by having him reappointed. The relations between Mr. Warfield and the Senator-Elect are not as pleasant as they were, [owing to tho latter's refusal to help pass the bi-partisau police board bill.
