FROSTBURG, MD. - SFPT. 11, 1913
The professional loafer, worthless
as he is,, is several points better than
the professional sport.
Mary had a little flea, she found it
on her dog ; she put it in the pigsty,
and now it’s on the hog.
When you cast your bread upon the
waters, be sure that it’s light enough
not to sink. When Christ said “cast
thy bread upon the waters,” he did
not have reference to the kind you
could knock a bull down with, the
kind that some of these newly-weds
There is much complaint in this
town of useless and senseless tooting
of automobile horns, and the com
plaint is well founded. Itis right and
proper for automobilists to give warn
ing when about to turn a corner, but
this thing of needlessly making about
all the hideous noise they can with
their horns, at all hours of the day
and night, as some of of them do,
ought to be suppressed as a public
nuisance. Our officers could do
nothing that would please a long-suf
fering public more, or that would be
more timely, than to arrest some of
the needless noise fiends and see that
they are given “salty” fines.
The school term’s coming on apace,
schoolma’am with a shining' face will
don her sweetest looks. She’ll edu
cate and sweep and scrub, and build
the fires, too ; unruly boys she’ll
soundly drub and pain them through
and through. Her duties she will
never shirk, she’ll do her level best;
upon dull craniums she’ll work with
earnest zeal and zest. Her noble task
she’ll gladly do, although for little
pay, for she’s a goodly girl and true,
no matter what folks say. So here’s
long life to girls who teach —take off
your hats to them ; they do more good
than some who preach —the scool
ma’am is a gem.
The home paper booster is a good
game rooster, a man among sturdy
men; but the bilious knocker is a prog
ress blocker, and much like a scratch
ing hen. Put the knock-kneed
knocker under the ground, for his
wails and knocks make a doleful
sound, as he works his jaws against
every good cause and takes a delight
in pointing out flaws. He knocks, but
his knocks are futile and vain, though
he gives to the boosters a sort of a
pain, and they pass him by with a
shudder and sigh, and wish that the
croaker would lie down and die. So
put the old knocker under the ground,
and on his grave strew dead cats
around, and never a tear will drop on
his bier, but his death will cause a
whoop and a cheer. And then the
choir will put away its peanuts and
gleefully sing a glad sweet refrain.
Garrett County Young Woman Re
leased from Insane Asylum.
Miss Virginia Savage, aged about
19 years, of Oakland, who was tried
in Cumberland on a charge of infan
ticide, at the April term of court in 1912,
was recently released from the Spring
field Hospital for the insane, having
fully recovered her mind and health.
After giving birth to a child in a
Baltimore hospital, Miss Savage start
ed with her newborn babe to her
home in Oakland, on a Baltimore &
Ohio train. At Rawlings, just west
of Cumberland, she threw the baby
out of the car window, where it was
found dead next morning.
The verdict of the jury was “not
guilty by reason of insanity at the
time of the commission of the offense
and still insane.” By order of Judge
Keedy she was sent to the Sylvan Re
treat, and was afterwards removed to
the Springfield institution at Sykes
ville, Carroll county.
The girl’s release was the result of
habeas corpus proceedings instituted
by Attorney P. C. Barnes.
She intends to join her family in
Florida, where they moved shortly
after the trial in Cumberland.
Physicians say the temporary de
mented condition was caused by her
leaving the the hospital before she
had fully recovered her strength, be
cause of a lack of funds.

No Reader of The Spirit Can Afford
to Miss a Single Installment of
This Interesting Story.
Are you fond of good serial stories?
If so, then you can’t afford to miss a
single installment of “Halton of the
Navy,” which starts with this num
ber of The Spirit. You will find it on
3rd page, and it will be continued un
til the end is reached, which will re
quire a good many weeks. This story
alone is worth several times the full
subscription price of the paper, and
all who miss a single installment of it
will miss something very good.
We also call your attention to the
other interesting things on our inside
pages, but under no circumstances
fail to read “Halton of the Navy.” If
you have not already subscribed for
The Spirit, do so at once, if for no
other reason than to get the benefit of
the complete story mentioned. Just
you read the first installment, and
you’ll want the balance of the thriller
each chapter being more interesting
than the one preceding it. The Spir
it has many more good things in store
for its readers, which will come forth

secured large exhibition buildings
and out-door space, and will have

itors. Garrett’s products in live stock
and from the soil have won many
prizes in forme: years at the fairs
held in Maryland and other atates,

years, and have many warm friends
y Frostburg is a town noted for very
fine gardens, but the editor of The

■1 The home of Henry Fresh, on Frost
18 avenue, has been greatly improved in
:l appearance by a slate roof and the
e removal of the fence in front of the
i- house. All the fences in Frostburg

of them are an eyesore to a home, as
well as to the town. Furthermore,

they didn’t know any better.
C. E. Baxter, of Red .Eodge, Mont.,
has The Spirit’s thanks for a year’s
subscription! paid in advance to this
paper for Sarah E. Baxter, of Joliet,
Mont. C. E. Baxter is unknown to
the editor of The Spirit, but his letter
head says “Baxter Bros., Painters,
Decorators and Grainers,” and the
chances are that he is a former Frost
burger. Furthermore, it’s dollars to
doughnuts that he’ll go to heaven
when he dies, on account of possess
ing the proper Frostburg spirit.
The thanks of the editor and wife
are due the Meyersdale Fair and Race
Association for a complementary
ticket to the fair, which began on
Tuesday and closes toworrow. B. E.
Shipley, E. R. Collins, E. H. Seihl and
Eugene Hostetler, all of Meyersdale,
were in this city last Thursday dis
tributing advertising matter for their
home fair. While here they stated
that the outlook was very good for the
most successful fair Meyersdale ever
had, and many Frostburgers are at
tending it.
The local ministers are invited to
send notices of their church services
to The Spirit, but they must be re
ceived not later than Wednesday
morning of each week, to insure pub
lication. Furthermore, the ministers
are expected to. take sufficient interest
in their work to send the notices to
the editor’s office if they care to have
them published in the home paper, in
stead of expecting a reporter to call
for them. The Spirit is working short
handed at this time, and can’t tell
how soon this impediment can be over
Eew Brenneman, a resident of Gar
rett county who had been a fireman at
the big lumber mill operated at Jenn
ings, by Jennings Bros., has decided
to become a citizen of Frostburg. He
is moving his family and household
effects here this week. Mr. Brenne
man has accepted a position as one of
bar clerks at Hotel Gladstone. In
past years he worked in the same
j capacity at the National House in
| Grantsville, Md,, and at the Hay Hotel
:in Salisbury, Pa. His family of ten
will swell the population of this town
TV. E. G. Hitchins is probably the
I greatest good roads enthusiast, in
! Western Maryland. He is a prominent
! member of the National Old Trails
Road Association, and has been doing
yeoman service toward bringing
about the building of a great system
of ocean-to-ocean highways. The
old National Pike, which runs through
Frostburg, is a portion of the main
line of the system, and when the sys
tem becomes a reality, as it undoubt
edly will and ought to, it will be as
valuable or more so to Frostburg than
another trunk line railway would be.
Mr. Hitchins has The Spirit’s thanks
for courtesies extended to the editor
in line with the good roads move

The Company’s Business Has Grown to Large Proportions—lts Fall c
Reduction Sale Now in Progress. £
September 7, 1877, the Williams Mar
ble Works opened its doors in a small
building formerly used as a shoemak
er shop on East Main street, near
Bowery. Its first proprietor was Hen
ry Williams, father of the present
head of the J. B. Williams Company.
The works remained at that point un
til it got too small for the increased
business, and in the spring of 1880, it
was moved to its present location,
corner Uhl and Main street.
About ten years ago this company
■ ■ c
~ ’ ' c
opened its Cumberland yard, which is
the finest establishment of its kind in
the state, and has been written up by
all t..e trade journals in the country.
Among marble dealers, it has a na
tional reputation.
From a small beginning the business
has grown to large proportions, doing
business in seven states, and some of
the finest memorials in the country
have been erected by this concern.
The company now has orders on its
books for work to be erected as far
west as Virginia City, Nevada, and
its policy has always been to use the
best material, do the best work, and
deal squarely with its customers.
In Western Maryland this company
is the leading dealer, doing more
business than any of its competitors,
its trade extending over Washington,
Allegany and Garrett counties. At

County Reunion of L. 0. O. M.
The county reunion of. the Loyal
Order of Moose, which will take place
at Narrows Park, Cumberland, next
Tuesday, promises to be a big affair
and will be participated in by all the
Moose lodges in Allegany county.
Many attractions have been arranged
for, and the members of that order,
who are noted Jor making a successs
of all their undertakings, are leaving
nothing undone to make the big re
union one long to be remembered
with plesant thought.
Allan B. Cecil, John J. Price and
Leslie Edelman, of the Frostburg
lodge, helped to arrange for the big
event, and that in itself insures suc
Great Floods in Nevada.
While some of the states in the
great corn belt are suffering greatly
on account of drouth, the desert state
of Nevada has been going wet with a
vengeance. S. A. Kimmel, one of The
Spirit’s subscribers in that state, who
is engaged in the mining and freight
ing business with considerable profit
there, writes as follows under date of
August 29th:
“I have been extremely busy, Sun
days not excepted. Sunday is, in fact,
usually my busiest day. Freight is
moving slowly, owing to the heavy
rains and waterspouts. All teams
have been tried up for a week. The
j road is entirely gone in places. The
oldest settlers never saw a summer to
| compare with this one. A few more
; seasons like this, and we will have no
| more desert in Nevada.”
N. Centre St., Cumberland, Md., is q
carried a large stock of finished S
monuments and headstones, the large- C
est in the state, where prospective £
customers can see the work. This y
has been fully appreciated by the peo- C
pie, and accounts for the large bussi- q
ness the company does locally, as pro- C
spective customers can visit the show C
rooms and select their monuments q
complete, ready for lettering, and £
need not purchase from men in every C
vicinity acting as local agents, but £
known to the trade as “pikers,” and
working a sort of graft upon the un
suspecting, the victims generally
being widows. The profit the “pik
ers” get is added to the price of the
work, and the material they handle is
of an inferior quality, which soon
. fades, crumbles and falls down,
and the purchaser has no one to fall
back on.
As it is the usual custom of the J.
B. Williams Company, rather than
hold a large amount of stock over the
winter, it is now' having its fall re
duction sale, and those needing me
morial work should visit the show
rooms of this enterprising concern,
when in Cumberland or Frostburg,
and save big money.

with this information was made from
a photograph of the company’s works
at Cumberland Advertisement.
