Patronize The Spirit advertisers. They are all good people to deal with, and furthermore, they are public spirited enough to lend their aid in keeping Frostburg on the newspaper map. The motion picture show to be given in the Palace Theatre, Thursday, October 23rd, for the benefit of the Beall High School Football Team, gives promise of drawing a large crowd. Duncan E. Shaffer, Frostburg’s candidate for Road Director, on the Progressive ticket, is making a vigor ous campaign, and his friends pre dict that Frostburgers will stand by him, irrespective of party. I. C. Hambert, of Chicago, who re sided here 25 years ago, has The Spirit’s thanks for a remittance to ap ply on subscription. He also sends his best wishes, and says: “You de serve to succeed with your enterprise, and doubtless will.” School Commissioner Thomas H. Morgan had a great pear crop this year, about 40 or 45 bushels of the very choicest fruit. He has been selling sme of them, and he con tinues to eat as many as -he can, and can what he can’t. Then, if any of them are left, they will be converted into plum butter. W. E. Flynn, of Clatskaine, Oregon, a man unknown to the editor, but evidently a former resident of Frost burg, is evidently one of the nv ter ous loya.l Ft-osthurgers who is glad to see a newspaper established here again. In remitting for a subscription, he says: “I hope-you will succeed in delivering Frostburg from obscurity.” Dr. W. H. Hong is being visited this week by his father, who resides in Pennsylvania. The elder Mr. Hong is 73 years old, but doesn’t look it by ten years. He feels as good and healthy as he looks, according to his own testimony, and he attributes his good health and young appearance at his time of life to the fact that he has never used either liquor or tobacco. C. B. Ryan, of Bogota, N. J., writes as follows: “Spirit coming regularly, and you have at least one enthusiastic well-wisher in yours truly. The im provement in each issue is as con spicuous as the uprising of the grass in my lawn, when I haven’t time to chastise it.” Thank you, old boy, you are made of the kind of goods every Frostburger ought to be made of. May your noble tribe increase. William Carson, of El Paso, Texas, visited among old friends and relatives here during the week. He had been visiting his mother in Baltimore and came here last Sunday.

White touring truck car for the purpose of transporting freight and passengers from the railroad stations, etc. The car is a beauty and can carry from 11 to 16 passengers. It is Mr. Decker’s purpose to run the big car to the stations to meet all day trains and give the town a first-class accommodation in that line. John N. Dayman, who lives on the Graham farm, near Frostburg, was a welcome caller at The Spirit office last Saturday. He cashed up for a year’s subscription, of course, and stated that he knew the editor’s father well and favorably many years ago. Mr. Dayman’s sister, Mrs. Gillian Meese, formerly of Grantsville, but now re siding at Harnedsville, Pa., made the first coat that was ever worn by the editor of this paper, and he remem bers well how proud he was of that coat. Fred Durr, the genial Mayor of Pocahontas, Pa., was in town yester day. He reported Mr. Pinkwhiskers, “Felty” Sass and all the other cele brated characters in his city and vicin ity busily engaged in trying to dis cover what has become of the once formidable Bull Moose party in the Keystone State. Harvey Moosem Berkley, the late absconding Somerset conuty leader of the Bull Moose gang, seems to have taken all of the so-call ed Progressive sentiment out of that county with him when he departed quietly for parts unknown, leaving a putrid mess and about $150,000 in bad debts behind him. SUIT FOR DAMAGES. SALISBURY MAN BRINGS SUIT AGAINST CUMBERLAND & WEST ERNPORT ELECTRIC RAIL WAY COMPANY. Suit was instituted on Monday against the C. & W. E. Railway Com pany by Chas. Wagner, of Salisbury, Pa., to recover damages caused by a car on said railway company’s line striking Mr. Wagner’s automobile on a small bridge between Midland and Honaconing, wrecking the auto and giving the occupants of the same a severe shock from which, it is alleged, Mr. Wagner’s wife, who was one of the passengers in the auto, has not yet fully recovered. The accident occurred last June while Mr. Wagner and party were in the act of crossing the bridge while a trolley car was ap proaching them from the other direc tion. To a representative of The Spirit, Mr. Wagner stated on Monday that before he could get across the bridge with his auto, he saw that owing to the narrowness of the passage and a short curve that caused the end of the trolley car to swing around over the highway at that point, such a thing as passing it would bd out of the ques tion. He therefore brought the auto to a full stop, intending to back out of the way, but was not able to do so be fore the collision occurred. He said that in his opinion the moterman on the trolley car could have easily avoided the collision, but apparently made no effort to do so. Therefore he decided to sue for damages, and the outcome is awaited with interest on the part of his friends. The plaintiff, in company with one of his sons, and his father, ex-Post master Silias A. Wagner, of Salis bury, mortored to Frostburg on Mon day, stopping here a short while, then proceeded to Cumberland to consult with Attorney C. S. Watson and give bond for the costs in the case. Honor the Old Soldiers. A special moving picture show will be given for the benefit of the Veter ans Auxiliary Fife and Drum Corps, at the Palace Theatre, on Friday evening, Oct. 31st. The pictures will be intensively interesting, and the proceeds will be used to purchase drums and other needed equipment. William Jennings Badly Injured. William Jennings, a well known citizen of Frostburg, was badly injur ed last Friday in the Short Gap mine, which is operated by the Stanton— George’s Creek Coal Company. He was struck by a fall of roof coal or slate and badly bruised and lacerated about the head and body. The injur ed man is about 35 years old and has a wife and several children. He was taken to the Western Maryland Hos pital at Cumberland shortly after the accident oow.. redH Hi. condition is reported as somewhat improved at this time, but he is not yet regarded as out of danger, according to a late statement made by a member of his family. Strike at Hosiery Mill. The employes of the Parker Hosiery Mill, of this city, walked out for an increase of wages last Monday. The employes number from 50 to 60, prin cipally girls. What the prospect is for an adjustment of the matters at issue, The Spirit is not in a position to say. STRONG TESTIMONY. Indisputable Evidence that it Pays to Advertise in The Spirit.
