The first real winter weather arrived in this locality last Sunday. Snow began falling about nine o’clock Sunday morn ing and continued until about six in the I evening at which time a change of tem- I perature caused a fall of rain and hail, i About nine o’clock at night wind began to blow and in a short time all clouds had disappeared- the first time for a week. I Owing to the moisture in the snow to j gether with the rain and hail that fell, | drifting was made impossible. The fall I amounted to about five inches. | Monday morning the sun had some ef- I feet on the snow, but by noon the tem- I perature began falling and continued at I a fast rate until Tuesday morning when ! the mercury registered 4 above zero on a number of thermometers about town. Reports .from Creager’s Green House say the mercury was down to 2 above. The cold snap made business brisk at the coal yard and has practically pul an end to all outdoor work. The first sleigh of the season appeared on the streets Sunday afternoon, Mr. Foreman driving the team. Key Literary Society. The Key Literary Society of the Thur mont High School held its regular meet | ing on Friday afternoon last. The meet ing was called to order by the president, Chas. Wisotzkey.

Thurmont Bank Distributes Nearly $5,000.00. ’ 1 Checks Sent To Two Hundred I I Christmas Club Depositors. 1 On Friday of last week the Thurmont | Bank, of Thurmont, sent out checks to the twohundred or more depositors of the Christmas Savings Club which was form ed here last January, the amount repre sented by the checks being about $5,000. For Thurmont, this is a big sum of money to turn loose all at one time, but it comes at a time when money is needed and makes this amount of cash available for Christmas shopping. Mr. L. S. Birely, president of the bank, states that the interest in the Christmas Savings Club surpassed all expectations of the bank officials when they entered into the matter. Only a few who enter ed the club discontinued their weekly payments, but every depositor received a check. The Christmas checks were very at tractive, each bearing a Santa Claus de sign. With each check was mailed an appropriate letter, anil the announcement that another club will begin on Decem ber 21st. The following in regard to Christmas Savings Clubs is taken from the Fred erick News of last week: About 2,650 checks were mailed on Tuesday, Dee. 8, by the Central Trust Co. of Maryland to as many depositors of the Christmas Savings Club, the total amount of money paid out being $64,200. In spite of the big task of getting every thing in shape for this distribution, the bank was one day ahead of scheduled j time. With this large amount of cash available for Christmas shopping, it may I be expected that trade in Frederick will | take a big jump from this time on. A banking institution does not make | my profit to speak of, from a plan of I this kind. Interest is paid on the sav-j ngs money, also. However, the Club is | i means of teaching systematic saving md is a positive asset to the community. The Christmas Savings plan of the Frederick Trust Company will also pay out a large sum to savers. About SB,OOO j has been saved under this plan, and it will be payable on and after Dec. 15th. Checks will be mailed to those request ing. The two Christmas Savings clubs of Frederick then have saved over $70,- 000 for use at this season. Wedding Announcements. Mr, and Mrs. Samuel Long of this | place announce the engagement of their 1 i niece, Miss Margaret A. Seiss, to Mr. ! | Roy Creeger, also of this place. The | marriage ceremony will take place in Trinity Reformed church Christmas even- I ing, December 25th, at 7 o'clock. The I church will be open to the public. Mr. and Mrs. M. L. Creager, of this place, have announced the engagement j of their daughter, Mary E., to John R. Tenney, of Baltimore. The ceremony will be performed at the home of the bride on Wednesday, December 23rd, in the presence of the immediate families of the bride and groom. Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Liday, of this place, announce the engagement of their daughter, Bessie V., to Mr. William L. Riffle of Thurmont. The ceremony will j be performed December 22nd. Married. On Tuesday afternoon at 2.30 o’clock, Mr. Floyd N. Wetzell, of near Rocky Ridge, and Miss Lucy W. Long, daugh- ' ter of Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Long of near 1 Rocky Ridge, were united in marriage by Rev. P. E. Heimer, at his residence in Thurmont. They were attended by Miss Long, sister of the bride, and Mr. Howard Long, both of Rocky Ridge. The newly married couple left Thurmont on the 3.15 train for Baltimore and other cities. ALBAUGH’S THEATRE. Christmas week, the famous moving i pictures, “30 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEAS.” “Thirty Leagues Under the Sea,’’pro nounced by scientists, teachers and the j regular patrons of thrilling motion pict-1 ures the most novel and interesting per formance ever presented on a screen, | will be seen for the first time in Balti more at Albaugh’s Theatre, Christmas ■ week.
