Kitzmiller on the Potomac

By Mrs. Ruth Hutson Ryan

At the Eastern side of Garrett
Is the little town of Blaine
Part of it is in 'My Maryland'
Part is in 'New Domain'(West Virginia)
And if ye editor will grant us
Just a small amount of space
We will tell about the people
That are found within the place.
First we'll mention Mr. Kitzmiller
The farmer of our town
Who clears the rubbish all away
And cuts the timber down.
From morn til night he labors hard
With mighty strength of arm
He never bothers anyone
Nor does his neighbors harm.
Then we'll speak of Billy Pool
Of North Branch Woolen Mills
Who makes the best of flannels
To keep away the chills;
And when the flowers put forth their bloom
And all the earth is gay
You can hear the rattle of his loom
From morn til close of day.
And if we had the time and brains
To write a director's book
We would tell of Meshack Browning
Who makes molasses shook;
Then there's 'Punch' and J. H. Rafter
The two boys Claude and 'Bull'
Who dress the staves for Mr. B
And keep the factory full.
Yes, and there's the other man
Our teamster Will McClane
