From a Former Marylander Now a
Resident of Kansas.
A. Eivengood, of Woodbine, Kan.,
eldest brother of the editor of The
Spirit, as well as a former resident of
Garrett county, Md., writes to acknowl
edge receipt of Frostburg’s new paper,
which will prove quite interesting to
He also touches on other topics in
his letter, some of which will doubt
less interest some of his numerous
friends, both in the East and in the
West, who are subscribers to this
paper. Among other things he says:
“I just got home from Kansas City,
where I had been for a few weeks on
a sight-seeing trip. I had a good time
and took in all the places of amuse
ment I could. I also visited the great
packing houses and several fine cem
eteries. I came across the graves of
many noted people, among them that
of ‘Jim’ Briger, the first white man to
see Great Salt Eake and the Yellow
stone National Park.
“I must tell you of our crops out
here. “This has been one of the dryest
and hottest summers I ever saw. I
can’t see how it was that we had any
crops at all, as we had no rain from
the middle of May until the first week
